Among athletes, body builders popular "drying" of the body, i.e. getting rid of the fat component with an increase in muscle mass. Usually this effect is achieved by low-calorie and low-carb diets, but with the addition of exercise. Despite the positive external effect: increase of relief, such a diet is harmful to the body, because carbohydrates – the main source of our energy. Abandoning them, the faster an athlete loses strength during workouts and harm my body. Correct "drying" only manipulates the amount of carbohydrates consumed, but does not eliminate them. In this case physical load are also distributed depending on the day diet.
Diet of carbohydrate alternation saves energy for intensive weight training. It accelerates the metabolism, helping the development of the body. Eating fruits, vegetables and natural protein products positively affect the General condition of the body, and the lack of strict restrictions in food does not strain the nervous system.
Diet of carbohydrate alternation involves only the use of fresh, natural ingredients. The permanent menu. Food should be varied, full of vitamins and minerals, but appropriate under the principles of carbohydrate alternation. Alcohol and sweets are totally eliminated.

The main role in this diet is given ongoing manipulation of carbohydrate intake. For example, do you take to lose weight two months. This piece you are sharing on four-day cycles. The first and second days of this cycle - low carb, protein intake at the level of 3-4 grams per kilogram of body weight, while consumption of carbohydrates is 1 to 1. 5 grams. Third day - high carbohydrate, carbohydrates can be 5 -6 grams per kilogram of body weight, the intake of protein can be reduced to 1 -1. 5 grams. The fourth day moderate: protein intake of 2-2. 5 grams per kilogram of body weight of carbohydrates to 2-3 grams. Ideally such a diet should be your principle of life and to continue even when the result will be achieved.
Physical activity during the diet of carbohydrate alternation is not reduced, but merely regulated. Because carbohydrates give a lot of energy and calories, carbohydrate days diet will be the most intense in working with the body: do strength exercises. Protein days include moderate exercise: fit aerobics and Jogging. The correct "drying" the athlete not only loses a few pounds of fat, but and increase muscle at the expense of proteins and strength training. Consequently, the musclesyou gain a distinct topography.
