4. Cycling The Carb/Protein
Cycling will significantly change your fat burning system. This requires considerably reducing your consumption of both substances and then increasing the intake after a few days. Primarily throwing your body for a loop. The primary purpose is to keep your body guessing.
Carb – Reduce carbs intake to around 150 grams a day for three days. You can eat low glycemic forms of carbs like sweet potatoes, oats etc. On day 4 up your carb eating by 200-250 grams more from what you were eating BEFORE the cycling.
Protein – Just like Carb cycle reduce your protein intake for two days. The body will push to sustain an anabolic state, this scramble makes your body efficient at holding onto nitrogen – the component of protein that influences muscle growth.
When you up the protein back to normal, your body is now more an at retaining nitrogen.
5. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA)
The BCAA L-Leucine, L-IsoLeucine, and L-Valine are very critical to repair, recovery and muscle building since they are metabolized in the muscle instead of the liver. That means new proteins will be produced that can be converted to energy.
We recommend supplements with BCAA to keep your body in an anabolic state, to helping with hydration, as well as aiding in recovery.
6. Green Tea
Research suggests green tea contains a plant compound called EGCG, which promotes fat-burning. Green tea is packed with antioxidants which aid in recovery as well as enhancing your metabolic rate and aids in hydration.
