I'm assuming that this is the reason that carb cycling is working for me. I never allow my carbs to actually get depeleted, yet by eating fewer carbs/lower calories on alternating days it is still causing my body to tap into my fat stores for the needed extra calories/energy...the benefits of controlled carbs without the downfall of depletion. Very interesting.
