Carbohydrate intake at a low level: 0.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
High intake of protein: 1.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.3 g per 1 lb of your weight
It’s the same scheme as the second day. The body uses glucose accumulated in the blood, then the glycogen from the liver and muscles to their full capacity and once they are depleted, it begins to use fat as a source of energy. Fats are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids, which in turn is converted to oxidized glucose.
Carbohydrate intake at a high level: 4-5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Moderate protein intake: 1 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.2 g per 1 lb of your weight
This is the most enjoyable day of the cycle. Moderate protein content and high amount of carbohydrates. The body replenishes lost glycogen and the muscles, in need of refurbishment, actively use carbohydrates and store them as glycogen. The conversion of carbs to fat is minimal and muscles literally “swell”, as 1 g glycogen binds to 4 g of water.Use this day to do a real intense workout.
The essence of this alternation is that the body does not adapt to the constant amount of calories and the metabolism does not slow down, but rather swings and fat burning occurs at a higher pace. Be sure to return to reset the cycle and go to day one, to continue promoting fat loss. Another important condition – this diet should be carried out against the background of intense training.
