Default Anyone Doing Carb Cyling?

I am decided that this is my new WOE for a while. I just started. I tried carb cycling on my own, but I did regular/low/regular/low. I was frustrated that I didn't really see any results, and then I picked up a a magazine and it said that a 2 day diet was superior. The 2 day diet should consist of 2 consecutive days of no more than 50g carbs. The article stated that the benefit was for insulin resistance. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/239041.php

So I tried my first day yesterday, today I was either 2 lbs lighter because of the lower carbs, or I was just 2 lbs lighter from trying something different.

Either way, i am going to do this for at least 2 months to see if it helps.

any one else doing a low carb variation diet?

my only worry is the off days. I hope i don't mess everything up.

So far today:

Red Raspberry leaf tea with 1/4 c almond milk, 1/2 tsp of domino light (sugar/stevia)
2 egg omelet with spinach, mushroom, green onion, and mozzarella cheese.
4 cubes cantalope
5 pcs mini dark chocolate chips.
1 c cucumber
2 eggs
1 tbsp mayo
1 oz avocado
1/4 c cantalope.
