I’m not a believer in calorie cycling and I think it’s extremely useless unless you use it as a life style method and not lose your social life.

What matters is your weekly calorie intake and protein intake.
how’s high calories on your lagging parts going to fix or even grow that lagging part? it won’t. There’s so many variables then just a day or 2 or high calorie intake.

It’s simple, you either gain muscle or lose fat, you can’t do both and call it calorie or carb cycling. so at the end of the week; did you go into a calorie surplus or are you in a calorie deficit.
Agreed, I think this approach is only worth considering for those who are close or at their genetic ceiling and want to maintain a very lean physique year round. The benefits are largely to have plenty of kcals to play with on the high days to enjoy foods that aren't "clean" and achieving satiety. One could make the case in theory that this approach MIGHT yield some marginal gains compared to maintenance kcals every day.

For those with significant progress to make wrt putting on muscle, the fastest way from point A to B is sustained moderate daily kcal surplus over at least something like ~6-8 months in conjunction with gaining significant BW. THEN diet down after. This is especially important for naturals.

that’s simple.
Bulking for a week or cutting for a week doesn’t work what so ever.
Even cutting for 2 or 3 weeks.. and the same goes with bulking. who do you know that gained muscle in 1 week or even 3.. unless you’re a genetic freak and blasting all kind of gear, no body.

Weekly calories matter; that’s why you need 3500 over your maintenance of 3500 below to gain or lose a pound.

Whoever came up with calorie cycling probably came up with intermittent fasting bullshit too
I see calorie/carb cycling as a way to either achieve a surplus or deficit. I calculate my weekly average intake that I need in order to reach a certain goal (bulk or cut).

for instance I need 3300 to gain weight, I eat 4K on trainingdays (4x per week) and 3k on restdays. Weekly average is ~3500.
