If you’ve managed to get shredded enough to show off those six pack abs then congratulations – you’ve accomplished something most guys can only dream of.
Having said that, you’ve probably looked at those fitness magazine cover models and thought
“How the hell does he get so cut?”
While they definitely have their diets and training routines perfected, they also use a clever technique that really gets them looking their best – they cycle carbs.
If you’ve never heard of carb cycling it’s pretty simple – you change the level of carb consumption throughout the week.
So you are probably wondering why that helps you get cut.
Carb cycling helps you lose fat by keeping your leptin levels high.
This hormone signals to your brain that you have had enough to eat and it is safe to burn fat as the likelihood of starving is low.
Dieting and Calories
Most guys restrict their calories quite a bit when dieting.
This works at first as they start to melt away the fat.
However, after a while their leptin levels start to drop which signals to the body to stop burning fat as you might be starving!
As a result, the diet stalls and the trainee compensates by eating even fewer calories which results in the body burning off muscle as it does not get the required daily nutrients.
So how do pro bodybuilders get around this?
They fool their bodies into boosting leptin levels by cycling carbs.
They will spend the first four days of the week on the usual low-car diet.
Then, they will ramp up the carbs on days five and six.
This signals to their body that food is plentiful, thereby boosting leptin levels and tricking their body into continuing to burn that fat at a fast rate.

Increasing Water Intake
You might be asking: “If I drink more water, my body will hold more water right?”
As a result of higher water intake your body will do everything it can to flush out the extra water it is holding.
So what does that mean?
It means after a few days of crazy water drinking your body will flush out water because it is getting so much of it.
The trick is simple.
Drink a ton of water for a few days.
Then suddenly you severely decrease your water intake.

Carb Cycling Recap
Keep in mind that everyone is different so you will need to adjust your intake accordingly.
Having said that, here is a quick recap on how to carb cycle: eat your usual calorie-restricted diet for 4 days of the week.
Then for days five and six allocate more of your daily calories to carbs. This will require some trial and error on your part to figure out the ideal mix for you.
After those two days return to your usual low-calorie diet.
