    I am 6" tall and starting carb cycling today using the book Carb Cycling the Recipe & Diet Book. It has me using 20% carbs, 50% protein & 30% fat on low carb days & 45% carbs, 40% protein & 15% fats on low carb days. I have no days with no carbs-don't think I could do that, & as a nurse, a don't think that's very healthy, or easy to stick too.

    This is a lot proten intake, shouldnt we replace carbs with fats isntead of replacing carbs with protein?
