A common nutrition plan many people use involves rotating low carb days with higher carb days. Low carb days revolve around meat and veggies with plenty of healthy fats. The low carb day is very easy to follow, especially for those who have already been eating paleo style. The high carb day can be more complicated because a “cheat day” is often misinterpreted. A cheat day is often thought of as a day where you can eat all those bad foods cheating on your nutrition plan. I prefer to use the term carb meal or carb day.
Carbs are a macronutrient just like protein and fat, and serve an important role in your diet. By incorporating them properly they can actually help increase fat loss, muscle gain and boost your metabolism.
