    Hey Joe/Bryce,

    I hope you are doing well. So I have read through the previous posts on this topic and understand that if one is not compliant with a baseline diet and doing the major things properly, they would get more benefit from that. I’m nearing the end of a 5 month diet where I have been 99% compliant (two post workout meals with sugary sources from carbs over the entire diet) on a diet of whole foods (meat at every meal, tons of vegetables, rice/potatos/fruit for carbs), hitting my macros everyday, sleeping 8hrs/day. The only supplements I have taken have been an intraworkout shake with hydrolyzed whey, 5 grams of carbs, creatine, caffeine, 5000 IU of D3 and a multi. I try to maximize the external and internal stimulus of the movements I am doing, execute them to the best of my abilities, take the sets that I do as far as possible, and progress over time. I feel like if there was a couple percentage benefit to doing carb cycling, it may be helpful in this situation (but if you have other suggestions, I would love to hear them).

    Any guidelines you would suggest for implementing carb cycling? For more context, I am 5’3 and 135lbs and from 25ish %bf down to about 15%, currently eating 135g protein, 135g carbs, 7g additional fats, doing the “Armageddon” program. Obviously, not a dramatic increase in carbs on the high day for someone my size but any guidance would be extremely appreciated.
