A cyclic ketogenic diet, or ‘carb cycling’, is a low carbohydrate diet with planned periods of moderate or high carbohydrate consumption.
This nutrition strategy has become a hot topic over the last number of years.
Carb cycling, like many of the modern protocols, goes against the traditional nutrition and dieting advice.
Tradition tells us that we can only build muscle or lose fat, and never at the same time. This is because we must maintain a calorie deficit to lose fat and a calorie surplus to build muscle.

Carb cycling therefore goes against the typical advice of fitness professionals and has gained a lot of attention.
