Eating for a High-Carb Day

We touched on what it would be like to eat for a low carb day, but now let's talk about eating for a high-carb day. While most might think, "Oh no! Not the carbs!" this is actually all part of the grand plan of carb cycling.

Carb Cycling involves alternating between high- and low-carb days, six times a week, saving the seventh day for reward meals and is a method that many use to get ripped.
