Get Lean Quick 14 Day Fat Loss Kit
I finished my two week "Get Lean Quick" program. My first week I
lost 15 lbs, second week 10 lbs, a total 25 lb loss. I was 220
lbs and went to 195 lbs, I am 58 yrs 5' 10" tall. The program was
very easy to follow, and I did not have to starve myself. Thanks
for your help and guidance, you have always taken the time to
answer all my emails. I will continue to keep the fat off. This
program has taught me important info on nutrition and exercise.
We are happy to announce the New Get Lean Quick 14 day kit is in
and available for immediate shipment. We send by priority mail,
so you can get started in just a few days!

Bodybuilding Carb Cycling
What is Carb Cycling? And How to Do it Right
Carb control allows you a critical tool to control your diet and in
turn your body fat. Of all the major nutrients, carb control is the
most vital for controlling your body fat. That's right – carbs are
more vital to controlling the body than is dietary fat.
One way to control the carbs is via carb cycling. Carb cycling is
perhaps the smartest way to handle a controlled, lower intake of
carbs. It's easy to go astray here. Some people take their carbs to
a minimal or almost no carb level, but that won't work for a working
athlete or bodybuilder. Carbs are the primary fuel source for
training so when you zero out the carbs, you zero out your fuel.
A carb cycle is a much better carb control mechanism for those who
need carbs for fuel. This takes the carb level down but allows you
some carbs for fueling the training.
And on top of the typical carb cycling diet, bodybuilders have one
other factor that requires a modification – at certain times they
need to refuel after a workout. Therefore it is not a smart idea to
be on a minimal or no carb day when you train. When you train, you
need fuel – before and after a workout. This means you hold the fuel
issue as a priority for training sessions.
The modification comes by allowing an adequate refueling after a
workout even if you are on a low carb day. With carb cycling, some
days you have a minimal amount of carbs (usually just some low carb
vegetables) and on other days you have a higher amount of carbs.
What level of carbs should you take on a low carb day? Some
nutritionists recommend just 0.5–1.5 grams of carbs ( multiplied by
your body weight). And for the other days? And 2–3 grams of carbs
(multiplied by your body weight) on high carb days.
You don't need to split the week with half of it comprised of low
carb days and half comprised of higher carb days. Instead, take just
a couple of low carb days a week, and preferably not on a training
day. Save the higher carb days for training days, and just hit a
couple of days that are low carb and let the diet play out over time.
