Timski, I have never really dieted before but plan on doing so soon. So I am still learning bits and pieces.
Obviously on the days I would take in 200, 150 I would taper off the carbs as the day went on. But on the 50g day would I just have the small amount of carbs on the first two meals then the others would be carb free? Then of course do the same with the 100 and 125 gram day. So on those days there would be no carbs after meal 3 or 4? Do I have that right?

Tim, do you count vegetables such as Broccoli towards your daily carb intake when dieting? I know a cup of Broccoli has 40 calories and 7 grams of carbs. I plan on having 7-8 oz of Chicken Breast, 2 cups of broccoli & 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil in my 2nd to last meal.

The easiest method I've come across in terms of carb cycling is to break the carbs down into 2 groups: starchy(potatoes,rice,oatmeal,et.) and fibrous: (vegetables ), and then rotate consecutive days of each carb only.( ex.- 1 starchy carb day followed by 3 fibrous carb days.) When cutting I usually go 1 starchy, 3-4 fibrous. You can find what rotation works best for you through trial and error. I never really weigh my food and/or count grams or calories of anything. The mirror doesn't lie as long as you are honest with yourself! I just make sure I have a good protein source (lean beef, chicken,fish) and a carb(again, what type of carb depends where my carb cycle is at) with each meal 5-6 times a day.
I ain't talking no trash... I ain't making no predictions...
Tim... Just read your thoughts over at MassMonsters and decided to register here to get more info. Your CC plan goes on a 5 day cycle, any specific reason for that? I was thinking of tinkering with it and making it a 7 day thing. Something like this: 200 150 100 50 125 200 250 I like when things fit nicely into a week. I can plan easier that way.

No particular,or scientific reason for the 5 day scenario, except that after about 3 days of very low carbs,I think it`s a good time to kind of replenish the body by having the two higher days...........you kind of deserve it. ;D
You can tweak it anyway you like......the whole key to having it work ,in my opinion is to never go too high on the carbs,even on a high carb day,except occasionally........as it sometimes will jumpstart the metabolim if at a fat burning sticking point.
While your plan decreases carbs daily in 50 gram increments,I decrease by about 75 as I think the disparity of the 50 gram increments may be a bit low.....still,it will work ........I`m trying to use carbs for fuel, and after that, hopefully tap into fat sources,that`s why I go a bit higher than the 50 gm. mark while decreasing.
I would give both ways a try ....the only thing you can lose is excess bodyfat.

Yeah. I used ECA stack years ago. Then went ripped fuel without ephedrine. Good stuff. I havent used anything in a long time. I even try to stay away from caffine, but it seems as though I stay leaner when I take in alot of caffine. It just makes me moody. Ups and downs.
