Carb cycling 🔥

🌍𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙯𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙨/ 𝙤𝙣𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜

carb cycling is one the newer eating strategies and most people aren't familiar with it. however, it's gaining popularity quickly. this post isn't about the advantages carb cycling has to offer, but it simply shows you how to approach. make sure to save this one! ⬇️
.
do i recommend it? 🤔 not really. it can work but it's a much more advanced method than most other strategies and requires strict tracking and constant modifications along the way. there are endless variations for every goal and unless you really know your body and are very good at tracking, you’ll have trouble sustaining it .
-----------
that being said, some people respond very well to it so i made some basic guidelines to follow if you really want to give it a shot and see how your body responds to it.
.
▶️to lose fat: the low carb days will amplify your caloric deficit and the high carb days will give you energy to workout and allow you to enjoy more carbs (making the diet more sustainable). make sure you keep your protein around 1 g/ lb of bw and vary your f*t vs. carb levels. try to get 2 of your workouts in on the high carb days 💪
.
▶️to gain muscle: still get in that 1 g of protein/ lb of bw and allow the f*t and carb levels to fluctuate. again, try to get your workouts in on high carb days 💪
-------------
please know this is just of the many ways to do carb cycling! if you're a more advanced athlete & know why you're doing it, it can definitely work for you. not the case for you? then don't worry about this stuff at all 😜

But kami, you don't do keto, do you? 😳 so many dm's about this today, after the stories i posted last night. here are my thoughts:
.
i haven't done keto yet & i haven't coached clients on it. i personally eat intuitively, with a heavy focus on protein & veggies. right now, it's something that works for me when i'm maintaining but it took me years to figure out. i definitely wouldn't suggest intuitive eating for everyone. in fact, i don't coach any weight loss clients on it because i don't think it the best option if you're trying to loose weight.
.
what is right for me, might not be right for you. if you have found something that is right for you, that doesn't mean other approaches are wrong.
.
i think it's important to get clear on your goals surrounding your nutrition plan.
.
are trying to loose, gain or maintain weight?
are you trying to increase athletic performance?
are you mostly concerned about your health?
are you trying to reduce or heal a medical condition?
.
there are so many different reasons you might be wanting to make changes to your nutrition plan & different approaches work better for some than others. i don't believe in a one size fits all plan for every person & every circumstance.
.
also, as humans we have such different preferences. i think it's extremely important to factor in your quality of life on any plan. if you are completely miserable, find something that works better for you.
.
we are so lucky to have people like @fit2fat2fit teaching us about #keto, @melissa_hartwig teaching us about #whole30 as well as @realchrispowell & @realheidipowell teaching us about #carbcycling. knowledge is power. if what you are doing isn't working for you, there are so many resources available to help you figure out something that does. i think educating yourself & cultivating self awareness are huge no matter what route you decide to take.
.
that's why i'm so excited for @fit2fat2fit 's new book, complete keto, to launch on feb 12th. drew is one of the most genuine people & i know this book will be a great resource. i've already started reading my copy & there is a ton of great information. congrats drew! i'm so happy for you! #ck30 #completeketo

Unposed vs posed
.
i know i’m not the first person on instagram to do this but it’s a good reminder and after a killer vip leg day workout (with some b***y finishers) i thought i’d take a pic to show you how easy it is to make things appear differently just a few seconds apart. it’s so easy to see perfectly posed people on here and compare ourselves to them, but the only comparison we should make is of our own progress (and i’m not just talking physical either).
.
we’re all on our own journeys that are vastly different from one another and for some of us it might take longer and that’s ok! as @amandatress always says- progress over perfection! i have to repeat that to myself daily!
.
happy saturday everyone!

Mama, it’s all about taking that first step. this is not a 6 week transformation. this is a product of me finally taking my first step to a better me
.
.
.
my first step was registering. then i figured it all out from there. i took it one day at a time, and made small, consistent steps that added up
.
.
.
it doesn’t have to be drastic. it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. it doesn’t have to be the perfect time. you just have to be willing to take that first step
.
.
.
my faster way to f*t loss® bootcamp starts tomorrow! take your first step and sign up to join us! you won’t regret it! the @fasterwaytofatloss program is legit! register here ——————————>@fatlossmama

Low carb zucchini fritter eggs benedict with prosciutto and tomato!🍅🍳🥒thank you @lowcarbmaven for this gluten free low carb brunch with only 5 net carbs! just add my tequila 🥂 cocktail. (see nye post for recipe) what do you think? look like something you would like?😊
••••••••••••••••••••••••••
eggs benedict
* blender hollandaise sauce
* 4 ounces prosciutto deli ham or turkey
* 4 large poached eggs
* 8 ounces tomato 4 thick slices
* zucchini friters
* 1 tablespoon snipped chives
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
blender hollandaise
* 4 ounces salted butter or ghee
* 3 large egg yolks
* 1 - 3 teaspoons lemon juice
* 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or white pepper
* add the yolks to a blender. put the top onto the blender but remove the middle piece. pre-heat a pan over medium heat. add butter and melt. continue heating until it bubbles and stops foaming.
* turn the blender on low and pour the butter into the blender slowly at first, and then a little faster as the hollandaise begins to emulsify add the lemon juice and pepper and turn the blender to a faster speed. scrape down the sides and add the middle back to the top of the lid. let the sauce sit in the blender until ready. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
zucchini fritters • 2 medium zucchini • 3 ounces of parmesan, grated (or dairy free alternative) • 1 ounce of almond meal • 2 eggs • 1 pinch of salt • 1 pinch of pepper • 2 tablespoons of avocado oil
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••how to make keto zucchini fritters
1 grate the zucchini into a brand new dish cloth, or muslin cloth, and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
2 mix the drained zucchini, parmesan, almond meal, eggs, salt and pepper together in a bowl and allow to sit for a couple of minutes. this lets the almond meal soak up some liquid and prevents the fritter from tasting dry and grainy.
3 pour oil into a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and scoop heaped tablespoons of the fritter mix into the hot oil, pushing them gently into a flattened, round shape. depending on the size of your pan, you may need to cook these in a couple of batches.
4 after 2-3 minutes flip the fritters over.
5 cook another 2-3 minutes.

Reminder there is no reason to shun an entire macronutrient 🙏🏼
bagels, broccoli, bread and sweet potatoes essentially all break down into sugar for our body to use. i’m not saying all carbs are equal in fiber or nutrients because i believe in high quality ingredients most of the time and preventing a blood sugar rollercoaster.
but it doesn’t mean you cut them out. period.
