Cycling Caloric Intake

23 Jan 2015
Cycling Caloric Intake

Cycling calories means rotating lower calorie days with higher calorie days but still staying within caloric limits. I continue to use this secret method to keep my body from setting a low calorie “set point”. If I have over-indulged a little, I keep my calories cycling around the lower end range and if I am maintaining weight, I keep them towards the higher range.

With practice, you will learn to distribute your calories throughout your day. The majority of your calories should be consumed during your most active daytime hours.
