Dieting Psychology

Its a dieting strategy to cycle calories on weekly basis . This can be done by cycling Carbs🍎 or Fats 🥑and keeping the protein🍗 constant . How it can be helpful ? ☝️1st scenario - Lets say you do heavy lifting 🏋️‍♂️ or you train big muscles on 3 days🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♀️ in a week and you are eating 1800 kcal now what you can do is eat 1575 kcal for 4 days and the 3 days when you are lifting heavy you can eat 2100 kcal🤸‍♂️ which can give you physhological benefit 🙂as well as provides you more energy to lift . However , as your average calories for the week remains same you will still lose fat 👇 even after eating high calories👆 for 3 days . ☝️☝️2nd scenario - lets say on weekends you like to have more calories🍳🍳🍳 then you can put high calorie days as saturday and sundays and adjust the calories from the remaining 5 days . for example - if eating 1800 kcal then what you can do is eat 1600 kcal for 5 days and eat 2300 kcal on weekends , still your average calories will remain same 1800 kcal . Below research done🧐 on Calorie cycling vs calorie restriction concluded that the results were similar in terms of weight loss however the effect of Calorie cycle diet was more persistent🤓 then calorie restricted diet.


Great article, so can we recycle calories for a period of week only or more than that? Cheers
