This book will explain the concept of carb cycling as well as how you can implement it yourself. For ultimate success we recommend this book in conjunction with a coaching call with either Jason or Roz so that you can be confident in your macro goals.
So is carb cycling for you?
Well let’s start with who it’s not for:
- Pregnant women or women nursing – while managing your overall carbohydrate intake may be beneficial during this time to maximize nutrient dense foods, your overall caloric intake should be higher than normal and steady and consistent to support your growing baby! After 6 months if breastfeeding is well established then you may wish to try this strategy however keep in mind that your overall caloric intake should not be adversely compromised.
- People who don’t work out – if you’re not currently exercising it’s unlikely that carb cycling specifically will provide you with improved results. If you’ve found that you’ve hit a weight loss plateau, you may be better off calorie cycling as this will help to increase your metabolism and balance hormones that may be suffering from being in a caloric deficit for too long.
- Anyone underweight – if you’re already underweight then carb cycling is not for you!
So who can stand to benefit?
- Active/athletic people – It’s an extremely popular short-term strategy among bodybuilders, as it allows them to burn fat whilst also maintaining or building muscle.
- Prediabetics, those with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes or someone who’s resistant to weight loss – because after several days of lower carbohydrate intake the body will have burned through its glycogen stores and will rely on stored fat in the form of ketones for fuel.

Thanks for the information, appreciate that you did the homework on that. Own Your Eating is working for me as it is and I don’t think it’s necessary to complicate it at this point.
