Carb Cycling Update

I know I've slacked off on blogging and I apologize! I promise to be a little more active on here. I've been carb cycling for a little more than a month now and have LOVED the results. I've managed to gain muscle, yet shred the fat that bulking gave me. I weighed in this morning for the first time in over a month, and gladly saw that I was up one pound! But I have also shredded some of the extra fat which means- MUSCLE GAINS! I have noticed a huge difference in my quads and glutes which are my main focus these days. Abs are showing more now with cycling as well which I can't complain about. Carb cycling also is much easier for me to keep up with then bulking was. Not having to eat a crazy amount of carbs each day is a relief, as weird as that sounds. I recommend carb cycling to anyone who is trying to cut fat but also make muscle gains. I've also added a little cardio back into my routine since carb cycling which has helped shred unwanted fat. I took a before picture pre-carb cycling which i'll be posting for all of you to see the difference it has made. Also, I'll be posting my "No cheats until Thanksgiving" update to see how my body has changed! A couple more weeks and I can enjoy a lovely cheat meal! I know a lot of you are doing this as well so I encourage you all to stick to it, we have a great reward at the finish line :)! Again, I promise to be more active on here guys! My busy schedule has been a bit overwhelming!
