If you want to know what carb cycling is, how it works, and whether you should do it or not, then you want to check out this infographic.

I don’t know about you, but I like simple.

And here’s a simple fact for you:

You don’t need to do anything particularly special or fancy to build the body of your dreams.

At least 80% of the game is just understanding and applying a relatively small number of physiological principles related to diet and exercise.

And I’d go as far as saying that the majority of what’s left is just patience and persistence.

You don’t need convoluted training programs or diets. You need fundamentals.

In this infographic, we’re going to dive deep into carb cycling and learn what it is, how it (supposedly) works, and how to do it.

We’re also going to review many of the fundamentals that supercede it, and ultimately, we’re going to get an answer to the most important question:

That is, can it really beat the simplest way to diet?

Let’s get to it.
