Carb cycling simply means some days you eat low carb and other days you eat moderate carbs. This ensures that you will burn fat effectively without causing hormonal damage or dips in energy.
For example, on low-carb days, I eat 50 grams or less of net carbs, where net carbs are defined as carbs minus fiber.
On regular macro days, I eat 205 carbs! This feels like a ton of food for someone who has been eating low carb for so long. Some days I have trouble eating enough.
Macronutrients are protein, carbs, and fat.
Simply use the free version of My Fitness Pal to record your daily intake of macros. Whenever you eat something, log it into My Fitness Pal. In the beginning, it helps to plan out your meals, so you aren’t scrambling at the last minute to fit in the right macros.
It’s not that hard I promise. And if you join FASTer Way to Fat Loss, you’ll be assigned a coach that can answer any and all questions you may have during the 6-week program.
Intermittent fasting is an important component of the Faster Way to Fat Loss. It means you stay in a fasted state for 16 hours. This may sound daunting, but it is doable, and you will get used to it. Typically, I stop eating around 7 PM and don’t eat again until 11 AM. You can ease into this and slowly work up to it if that helps.
It’s funny, now that I have been doing it for so long, I no longer crave food at night. I don’t even think about it anymore. That’s a huge win for me.
Intermittent fasting turns your body into a fat burner. It allows the body to utilize fat as its main source of energy and can help to change your overall body composition.
Why I love FASTer Way to Fat Loss
This program is based on eating whole, clean foods, and it’s something I can do for life. It is a gluten-free and dairy-free program, but I know folks who have had success without being dairy-free. And you can drink wine as long as it fits into your macros.
Eating well and not starving myself makes my body happy. And it’s the best way to burn fat fast, which can be a challenge once we hit menopause and beyond.

Food is medicine. Food is powerful. And nutrient-rich foods can impact our health and our life in sometimes unimaginably positive ways. When we make the right choices, our pants size will improve but more importantly, our quality of life will too.
