A carb cycling diet is a tactic where you eat different amounts of carbs on alternate days depending on your activity.
 
Unlike crash diets, which can lead to weight loss and then yo-yoing once the diet is over, this method helps maintain stable body weight by regulating the hormonal stress caused by calorie restriction.
 
The idea behind carb cycling is that people can't follow the same low-carb diet indefinitely without craving something, usually carbs. When this happens, they revert to their old eating habits or abandon them altogether. Carb cycling is intended to facilitate compliance and weight loss on a no-carb, very-low-carb, or low-carb diet.
 
In some cases, carb cycling can help combat the fatigue and decreased energy levels that often occur when following a low-carb diet for an extended period of time.

Carb Cycling Diet Benefits

Carb cycling doesn't put as many restrictions on your food choices as other diets do. This technique may be more appropriate for your needs and, as a result, may help you lose weight, as it does with others. The plan is also quite adjustable, as you can modify it based on your specific vegan nutritional needs. This can be achieved as the vegan diet is strong in carbohydrate elements and low in fat.
