Default Carb-cycling

Anyone here tried carb-cycling? I am basing my diet from Chris Powell's book and it really makes sense to me. After 4 days I have lost 4.6 pounds. I feel pretty good. I can tell some difference on the low carb days, but not bad...considering how bad I feel with my weight! Just curious what kind of experience others have had with this.

I have been looking into carb cycling also. I love Chris Powell and was going to pick up his book on it. How do you like carb cycling so far? Does it seem hard at all?

I don't believe the cycling has anything to do with it.

What I will say, however, is that low carb is generally conducive to weight loss which is what I tend to be as I eat a lot of protein. But on those odd days I do go carb crazy with bread, icecream, dessert and the works it makes very little difference to my weight as long as I return to low carb the following day.

I didn't intend to be low carb, I just ended up that way.

It's probably just an averages thing. Like everything with weight loss IMO.
