Going up the ladder & Exercise

Hi there,

Has anyone hiked up their grams in carbs because they are working out? I know Dr. Atkins had mentioned that if you are working out, you can afford more carbs. I was just wondering. I plan on doing some kick boxing (TurboFire to be exact) and was just wondering if anyone was successful leaning out with exercise while allowing more carbs.

Thanks in advance!

It's called "carb cycling" but I think it's more for weight training than cardio. I have never used it. I always notice increased workout performance (strength/endurance) when I am low carbing, so personally I don't find a need for it, but YMMV.

Up your fat, not your carbs.
