Kill The Fat – Carbohydrate Alteration Scheme






It’s a pretty simple philosophy : alternate low and high quantities of carbohydrates on different days, while eating adequate protein intake and moderate amounts of fat in the diet. This way, you are able to put your body in a special mode, which triggers a powerful anabolic response. While is may sound complicated it’s actually pretty simple method that can enable almost simultaneously muscle preservation and fat loss. One cycle last  4 days, and the number of such cycles is from 7 to 14 depending on the wanted results.
Day One
Carbohydrate intake is moderate: 1.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Moderate intake of protein: 1 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.3 g per 1 lb of your weight
Your body gets enough energy to maintain vital processes. Meals should be frequent (4-6 times a day)
Day Two
Carbohydrate intake at a low level: 0.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
High intake of protein: 1.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.3 g per 1 lb of your weight
On this day, limit the intake of carbohydrates. Eating high protein protects muscle protein from degradation and being used as a source of energy. Low amount of dietary carbohydrates and fats will provide some energy, but force the body in using its own sources of stored fat as a source of energy.

Day Three
Carbohydrate intake at a low level: 0.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
High intake of protein: 1.5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.3 g per 1 lb of your weight
It’s the same scheme as the second day. The body uses glucose accumulated in the blood, then the glycogen from the liver and muscles to their full capacity and once they are depleted, it begins to use fat as a source of energy. Fats are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids, which in turn is converted to oxidized glucose.
Day Four
Carbohydrate intake at a high level: 4-5 g per 1 lb of your weight
Moderate protein intake: 1 g per 1 lb of your weight
Low fat intake of 0.2 g per 1 lb of your weight


This is the most enjoyable day of the cycle. Moderate protein content and high amount of carbohydrates. The body replenishes lost glycogen and the muscles, in need of refurbishment, actively use carbohydrates and store them as glycogen. The conversion of carbs to fat is minimal and muscles literally “swell”, as 1 g glycogen binds to 4 g of water.Use this day to do a real intense workout.
The essence of this alternation is that the body does not adapt to the constant amount of calories and the metabolism does not slow down, but rather swings and fat burning occurs at a higher pace. Be sure to return to reset the cycle and go to day one, to continue promoting fat loss. Another important condition – this diet should be carried out against the background of intense training.
