When I did carb cycling last year, I would sometimes gain as much as 5 pounds immediately following a refeed. Carbs make a huge difference.
That's awesome, good shit.
Question for you, or anyone else who has cut before, how do you get through the mental hurdle?
I'm looking forward to losing excess fat, but I keep postponing my cut because I'm scared of losing the gains I worked so hard to get over the past year.
Originally was going to start after the new year, then I said no, let me wait until my scale arrives from amazon so I can do it exactly, now my scale has come and I'm telling myself I should bulk out the rest of this month.
I know if I'm careful cutting, the risk of losing muscle is slim, but I still feel a bit reluctant.
