How Many Carbs Should You Eat on Keto? QUIZ RESULTS: Cyclical Keto

Your results indicate you’d do great on a cyclical keto diet.

People your age, with your activity level and your goals thrive on less carbs six days per week, with one carb refeed day per week.

Here’s how to do it:

  • On days 1-6, eat high fat, very low carb (<50g net carbs is a good rule of thumb).
  • On day 7, you’ll do a carb refeed, consuming up to 150g of net carbs.

Optional: On your carb refeed day, you’ll also do a protein fast day. Dramatically lowering your protein intake once a week induces autophagy – the process where cells digest damaged parts and waste products. This is important not just for fat loss, but also for your cellular repair functions. It helps your whole body work better.
