Carb Cycling - Tips for a quick return to ketosis?

Answered on September 12, 2014

Six days a wek I have been eating about 20 to 50 grams of carbs a day to help lose some weight. It's working great. One day a week I have been eating 75 to 100 grams of carbs, in an attempt to avoid or lessen any intolerance to carbs that might be caused by eating low carb so often. I eventually want to be able to introduce more carbs on a regular basis once I'm down to my goal weight.

Does anyone have any tips on how I can get back to ketosis most quickly after my high carb days? Right now I'm trying exercise (mainly exercises like pushups, squats, planks, hand weights and walking as I injured myself and can't run right now) the morning after my high carb day, and I'm trying to hold out to eat breakfast as late as I can the day after my high carb day. My breakfast is VLC, usually hard boiled eggs or meat. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your input. BTW - I actually only exercise a couple times a week, so I personally, don't see that as a disorder. Just trying to figure out the most valuable times to get those workouts in.

Don't worry? Exercising just because you ate carbs teh night before sounds a bit unpleasant and dare I say, on teh borderline between 'ordered' and 'disordered' behaviours about fod and exercise. Anyway, why not do the workout in the period before you eat the carbs, which would mean you'd take advantage of anabolic effects?

As for 'getting into ketosis', why the rush? Anyway maybe try eating mct rich foods like coconut or macadamia. If you're eating a lot of eggs and meat you may not be 'in ketosis' anyway because of gluconeogenisis occuring. But then, you don't need to be in ketosis to lose weight, so it's not necessarily a problem...
