Cyclical Ketogenic Diet: The Evidencesabout Low-Carb Cycling


Have you ever tried ultra-low carb diet? If yes, then you must be aware of many of its health benefits and the benefits are: losing weight, suppresses hunger, stabilizes blood sugar level, improves stamina, mental acuteness and also helps to lower the blood pressure. This all become possible to burn fat in order to produce energy instead of carbs. It’s quite amazing to strictly follow the diet for better results.

Despite the fact that the benefits of low-carb cycle are amazing yet there are times, when person feels that nothing is working in terms of losing weight or getting energy then there’s the ultimate remedy called as “Cyclic Ketogenic Diet Plan”. It’s the type of diet in which you break your strict diet pattern and follow the periodic diet loads.

After knowing all this, you need to know that cyclic ketosis diet is not recommended for all rather you must have to master the said diet and to stay in a state of ketosis for some period of time such as for 1 to 2 months. Moreover,being on a heavy carb keto, do not consider to dine out for pasta regularly. You don’t need to mug your stomach up. It needs to be done in a control situation in order to get benefits out of it. More importantly, if you will do so, you might be kicked out from the process of ketosis but the thing to note is that it can be cycled again that’s why it’s called “cyclic ketosis”.

A keto carb diet is for the short period of time when you actually deliberately consume more carbs than your actual diet. This meal can last for a single meal or can be extend to full day. But again, must keep in mind that you can be kicked out of the process because of water holding and you might improve weight. The overall consumption of carbs depends on your goalmouths and the condition of your body depends on it. Therefore, before going for it, you have to do experiment whether it fits according to your present health condition or not. Some examples I have shared for you to know more deeply:

  • Stick to the keto diet throughout the week, do carb loading on Saturday and then yield to the strict rules on Sunday.
  • Twig with a firm routine excluding single carb-heavy meal every 3rd day.
  • Abide bythe lifestyle full time with the exception of when you feel a particular need to have some carbs at the ready. This approach does not call for expect able cycling but instead more random carb ups determined solely by the needs of the moment.
  • Eat low-carb all week and then go carb heavy every single weekend.

As I whispered above, I think this strategy of 5 days on 2 days off offers pointless dangers of leave behind your routine altogether. But if you think you can handle it, then more power to you!
