I have a secret for you that can save you days, weeks, maybe even months of counting calories and staring in the mirror wondering if you’ve seen any change.
When I discovered it, it changed everything I thought I knew about fat loss.
This secret is actually just one word. It’s a word you don’t hear often. In fact, if you’ve heard it before it was probably buried in a boring corporate presentation. It’s called “synergy”.
These two fit together so well, because one fuels the other and vice versa. When you are doing hard metcon workouts at 80% of your max heart rate, you burn through massive amounts of sugar and glycogen. Then, your body has to rebuild and recover in a process that burns fat for up to 48 hours.
To fuel the kinds of high intensity workouts necessary to see real improvement, you are going to need to eat carbs. But when you aren’t doing these high intensity workouts, you’ll want to take advantage of the fat burning.
This is why carb cycling works like magic.
With carb cycling, you can take advantage of the fat loss benefits of cutting carbs and still enjoy the energy boosting, muscle building effects of having carbs whenever you need them. With each cycle it gets more awesome.
Like gas in your car, you have a ready supply of energy to fuel your hardest workouts.
When you need to, you refuel and start again, but this time with a little more muscle and a little less fat. The increased muscle mass burns more calories before, during, after each workout.
Every time you exercise, it makes a bigger difference and you see better results.
Instead of slow and steady results, your results get come faster and faster. That’s synergy. That’s the magic of mixing carb cycling and metcons.
