So, how does Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD) works?
For most of the time you will be consuming a high fat, high protein, low carb diet. This is interspersed with smaller periods of high carb, high protein, low fat nutrition. There are variations on the CKD but the standard (and my favorite) way is to implement it in the following way:

■5-6 days of low carb.

■1-2 days of high carb.

How LOW carbs is LOW CARBS? In general, in order to get to low carb mode all you need is to consume 60 or less grams or carbohydrates a day. It takes 3 days to get into fat burning mode. Start with 30 grams of carbohydrates and see how it is going.
