    Need help setting up my carb cycling for the first time.

    Read the carb cycling 101. Got the basic idea behind it and reading from other sources..

    I would say I'm nearing 15% BF. Ive been in a deficit since September of 2016. Started at about 215. I weighed in at 188 last monday although the scale today says I'm 193.

    So my currently intake daily is

    TDEE 2518 last I checked to go with this current deficit.

    Calories 1805
    Protein - 175g
    Carbs 130g
    Fats 65g.

    Sometimes the carbs go higher depending on what I consume but yeah around these.

    I workout Monday Wednesday Friday on a Novice strength program. Last about an hour - hour half, WIth some moderate cardio at the end.

    So I would think I should keep my workout days to moderate carbs.

    MWF - Moderate
    TuThSat - Low
    Sunday - HIgh.

    Or is it optimal to run the MTuWed moderate and than ThFriSat for low carbs for that depletion effect for the refeed on sunday?

    As well I'm running at 0.9g Protein per lb
    About 0.4g fat per lb
    and 0.7 carb per lb roughly.


    I don't plan on running the 1.5g of protein daily. I find that is a unnecessary amount of protein intake for a natty novice lifter whose running his first cut / first attempt at getting to a low BF.

    Anyone thanks for advice.
