Time to Carb-Up? Signs To Watch For #video #keto #lowcarb #paleo

Carb cycling on a high-fat, low-carb, keto eating style. 3 strategies, how to do it, what not to do + tips for success.

If there’s one thing I regret when I started eating high-fat, low-carb, keto, it’s that I waited way too long to do my first carb up.

In all honesty? I got a little scared of eating carbs. I went months fighting the urge to eat a little bit of carrots, sweet potato or yam thinking that powering through would help me reach my goals quicker. Yah, it didn’t. If anything, it made things worse.

I don’t want this guilt for you. So, I made this video.

Today, we’re going through the 3 strategies for carb ups aka carb refeeds – why I (now) practice carb ups, how often to do them, why they work, and more.

A must-watch if you’re using a ketogenic, high-fat eating style to heal your hormones, build muscle and/or reset your health.

  1. Thank you so much for your videos. They are very helpful.

    I’ve been doing keto since mid November, never cheated or been out of ketosis, I’m totally that person you speak of in your video scared to eat a sweet potato, but my hair is changing and not for the better. I’ve heard that b vitamin would help, so I’ve been taking those, ordered collagen a few weeks ago and have been putting that in my coffee every morning, hoping I will see an improvement soon. I’m losing SO much hair and not only that but it went from healthy to very frail and lots of breakage. If I let my hair air dry in the past, it looked like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet, so much frizz. Now it dries straight and flat but super super thin. I don’t mind that, but with all the hair I’m losing, it’s very unhealthy looking and I have always been able to wait a year in between hair cuts. I already had to schedule one at 3 months because my hair is looking horrible :( Do you think carving up 1-2 times a week would help? When you do this, are you often back in ketosis that next day? I do have a monitor to check because I knew I was going to pursue this at some point. Sorry for the long post. Any advice would help! I’ve lost 25 pounds and feel great, definitely interested in your feedback.

    • Hi Brittney! I’m so sorry you’re having this issue! Yes, I really improved the quality of my hair with carb-ups. Try adding a carb up meal as your last meal of the day 1-2 times a week and see how you feel. When I eat a carb up late in the day, I usually wake up back in ketosis, so don’t worry too much!
