Strategic Carbohydrate – Restriction:


  • When following the Metabolic Reset concentrated carbohydrates should be completely restricted for the first 7-14 days
  • Scale back or minimize exercise during the first 7-14 days to avoid added physiological stress. Allowing the beta-oxidation Metabolic Pathways (Fatty Acid Metabolic Pathways) to upregulate and enhance the bodies ability to use Fat as Fuel.
  • After the initial 7 – 14 days (dependant on signs of Fat adaption occuring) start re-introducing carbohydrates during exercise after the warm up phase for harder sessions where glycolytic pathways are  utilized.
  • Avoid the post exercise carb intake for glycogen replenishment.
