What is Calorie Cycling?


Calorie Cycling is term used for maintenance of calorie levels in the body at higher or lower level throughout the week. As per Calorie Cycling, persons who Want to Gain or Lose Weight advised to intake required amount of calories at higher or lower pace, so that, average intake of calories during the week remain same, despite setting a same calorie level goal for a week. Calorie Cycling is also known as Zigzag Dieting or Calorie Shifting.

Calorie Cycling is work on simple formula that is Calorie In or Calorie Out.

Calorie Cycling is one of the best formulas available for Weight Gain. Let’s take an example here, if you are 22 year old male who weighs around 60 kgs and six feet tall. Currently you eat around 2500 calories a day (or 17,500 per week) and want to increase weight. To gain 1 lb of fat each week, you need to create a weekly addition of 3,500 calories (1 lb of fat contains roughly 3,500 calories) which means you need to come in at around 21,000 calories for the week (17,500 + 3,500 = 21,000 calories.)

With a traditional diet, you would either eat 500 more calories each day or additionally intake 500 calories. Over seven days, that would create a total gain of 3500 calories, which under most circumstance would cause you to gain about a pound of body weight.  So here’s what your Daily Calorie Intake would look like:

Monday: 3000
Tuesday: 3000
Wednesday: 3000
Thursday: 3000
Friday: 3000
Saturday: 3000
Sunday: 3000

Total for Week: 21,000

Your calories are the same each day, resulting in a 3500 calorie gain at the end of the week.

However, you with calorie cycling, your calories per day would look like this:

Monday: 3000
Tuesday: 2830
Wednesday: 3200
Thursday: 3000
Friday: 2800
Saturday: 3180
Sunday: 3000

Total for the week: 21,010

With this you still end up the week with gaining 3500 extra calories a week and achieve the calories up and down each day despite steady intake of same calories throughout the week.
