Let’s face it, nearly everyone enjoys foods with carbs. Whether you’re craving a fresh bagette, a bowl of brown rice, or even an apple, cutting out carbs can be a miserable experience.
By restricting your diet so much and removing foods you love, it’s unlikely you’ll stick with it for long. Worse, after quitting foods for a period of time, many people then turn around an find themselves binging on those same foods. This can not only negate any positive effects your diet had in the first place, but can actually leave you in a worse spot than where you started.
By carb cycling, you can still incorporate many of the foods you love, avoiding these feelings of deprivation and “hanger”. It also illuminates the difference between good and bad sources of carbs, making the carbs you do eat even more beneficial.
Carb cycling is designed to be flexible and work with your lifestyle and not as a catch-all for everyone. People also find this strategy much easier to stick to with a busy life and a family, while still being able to satisfy some of those cravings.
Here are 5 reasons why cycling could jumpstart your health and weight loss goals…
