Star of “Extreme Weight Loss,” Chris Powell has helped hundreds of people go from obese to slim. His secret is a concept called carb-cycling, which he detailed in his books such as “Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution” (click for details).
Carb-cycling diets involve shifting between various food plans, from high protein to high fat to high carb. Chris has teamed up with Dr. Oz on several episodes to talk about using carb-cycling for weight loss. They even created a plan to allow you to splurge without gaining weight over the holidays: Get all the details on how to alternate high carb, low carb, and high fat diet days by clicking here.
So how does carb-cycling compare to ketogenic high fat low carb diets? Ketogenic diets require keeping your carbohydrate intake low in order to achieve and maintain nutritional ketosis. One of the most well-known types of ketogenic diets is the Atkins weight loss plan, which Kim Kardashian used to lose 70 pounds.
