I’ve been sticking with Keto cycling (one day on and one day off) and I’m enjoying the variety it provides me! Despite what many may think,  Keto cycling doesn’t mean you get to eat as many carbs as you want. The idea is to get a healthy amount of starches and carbs rather than the low percentage that Keto allows.

After a few weeks of giving it a go, I feel like carb cycling is more for those coming off Keto, or those looking to maintain rather than lose weight. It’s also a great way to have a healthy introduction to carbs, and it’s really easy to get the whole family eating this way if you choose!

I’m obviously not a dietitian, I’m simply sharing what works for me.
