40-Day Carb Cycling Plan A Carbolicious Lifestyle Plan

Get your hands on this simple CARBOLICIOUS plan – cheaper than a latte!

WHAT IS CARB CYCLING?

Carb cycling is one of the fastest ways to lose weight without feeling like you are starving to death. This is because this plan doesn’t restrict your cabs for weeks on end – there is light at the end of the tunnel. This plan will show you which steps to take to make sure you are cycling correctly. * Calorie or carbohydrate restriction is not for everyone, especially those with a metabolic disease, pregnant, etc.

The Carbolicious Carb Cycling plan is quite simple. You alternate days on when you eat a certain amount of carbohydrates. You limit your carbs on specific days and refuel and consume a bit more on others. You can take it to a deeper level by choosing faster weight loss or a slower approach. It all depends on YOUR personal level of comittment. 

Remember, you still have to put some work it. The more work put in, the faster you’ll see results.

There are many levels and different forms of carb cycling, some of which are excellent and some can be disruptive to your body. God made your body beautifully balanced, and if you disrupt that balance too much, you’ll see repercussions. You absolutely need carbs for your everyday life and you should never restrict them completely from your diet.

This Specific Plan Will Help You:

  • get on a schedule that is healthy and safe
  • help reduce your intake of sugars, carbs, and processed foods
  • be stress-free because your meals are planned out - you just have to put the work in
  • be accountable, by checking things off on your worksheet and getting a friend involved
  • with your budget - cheaper than a latte!

1. LONG TERM Vs SHORT TERM CARB CYCLING

It’s important to understand the difference between short-term and long-term effects of carbohydrate restriction.

God created us with the ability to handle short-term deprivation relatively well, however, a strict nutritional regimen of low carbohydrates can be hard on the body for long periods of time. It also depends on how many carbs you are holding back on. Missing a meal here or there, or dropping carbohydrates very low for a few days, isn’t disastrous when it’s occasional or brief. An example would be fasting.

God calls His people to periods of fasting. There is much evidence that suggests brief periods of fasting and caloric restriction are actually advantageous for both physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.  (read more on fasting in the Bible). For believers in Christ, the focus of fasting isn’t on weight loss, but rather their intimate relationship with Jesus.  This is the biggest reason and blessing of all too fast. Plus, there is a deeper peace knowing you are connecting with The Creator of all.

(The Bible says Jesus fasted for 40-days. I’ll never suggest such a feat, however, I’m suggesting a 40-day, light carb cycling plan for the sole purpose of changing your lifestyle to a healthier one.)

2. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT CALORIES

The common theme behind carb cycling is that protein and fat intake stay relatively constant while carbohydrate intake is altered. An example of carb cycling is following a strict or moderate lower-carb diet 5 days per week and consuming additional carbohydrates on the other 1-2 days. If we lower our calories, we will lose weight, but, it depends on WHAT we are actually eating.

It’s no secret that if we restrict calories we will lose weight. What most don’t realize is that the real zinger is to restrict carbs, not proteins and fats. 

3. YOU GET A ‘TREAT’ MEAL!

Yup, you get a treat meal every week on this plan. It just can’t go over 600 calories. You could eat whatever you want, but I want to challenge you with a little story.

If I swing into McDonald’s and purchase a sandwich and small fries for 600 calories and you go home for dinner and make a power salad with tuna for 600 calories, whose meal is better? Obviously yours. You consumed loads of nutrient-dense foods which means you are getting so much more vitamins and minerals than I did.

These vitamins and minerals are going to rejuvenate your body and charge you up correctly. We can cheat and have a treat all we want, but our bodies will tell us later how we did. If we consume packaged foods that are loaded with salt, preservatives, saturated fats, and carbs, it’s not going to help us in the long run. Even if we consume only 600 calories of it.

Addictions start easily enough by consuming the wrong foods often. This plan is here to help you combat that. After 40-days of making awesome decisions and still being able to have that treat meal, you’ll be so thankful you chose good treat meals.

4. NEVER RESTRICT 100% CARBS

We must have carbs to function. We can’t live without them. They are our primary energy source. So if you restrict too much, you basically aren’t good for much. You’ll feel lethargic and your mind will play tricks on.

You must maintain a healthy amount of the majority of your days. FDA and general nutritional guidelines suggest the average person consume 40-60% of their food from carbohydrates.

If you want to lose weight, you’d consume the lower portion of 40% on this scale. If you want to gain weight, you’d consumer closer to 60%. If you consume lower on the scale towards the 40% range and you feel weak, can’t think straight, , then your body is telling you to consume more carbs.

If you only feel hungry, but really aren’t, this could be a food addiction or a habit. This is something this plan may help you combat.

5. USE THE HUNGER SCALE

An easy indicator if you are truly hungry or not is to use the Hunger Scale.  It’s simple enough. Just use a scale from 1-10. 1 is bored and 10 is starving. You want to eat at about 7 or 8.

Ask yourself if you are really hungry and could actually eat a horse (10) or if you are moderately hungry and could wait another 30 minutes (5). There are more tips in the Carb Cycling plan. Buy it today and start yourself on a lifestyle change that could help you in the long haul.

Recipes are included in the plan!

FLUSH DAY RECIPES

Below is the meal plans for the Flush Days. If you need a modification, then choose something else that's close to these recipes.

Meal 1: 1 Whole Egg & 3 Egg White, Omelette: 

If you are not concerned with cholesterol, eat 3-4 eggs. I don’t have high cholesterol. I eat 3-4 eggs every day.

  • 3-4 Eggs
  • Onions: red or green if possible
  • Peppers, zucchini, squash, spinach, Kale, tomatoes, or any other veggies you desire.

Instructions: I like to place olive oil in my pan and then stir in the cut up veggies until slightly browning. Then I add my eggs right to the pan and scramble them up altogether. Saves time and there is one less pan to clean.

* Try scrambling eggs and add a side of chopped broccoli and zucchini to add more volume to this meal.

Meal 2: Garlic Lime Chicken Marinade (do this the night before and take for lunch)

  • 14cup fresh lime juice
  • 14cup olive oil
  • 1tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 12teaspoon salt
  • 14teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 3-5 Chicken Breasts Instructions:

Instructions: Put all ingredients together besides the chicken. Set 2T of the marinade aside to use as dressing. Marinate the chicken for at least 15-30 minutes.

Grill or bake chicken until cooked through. 

Put a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and arrange skin side up, without crowding, in a shallow baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until just cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.

Top salad with chicken, avocado, and any remaining dressing.

Meal 4: Steak Salad with Oil and Vinegar Dressing

Oil and Vinegar Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or a more neutral-flavored oil like grapeseed, canola, or vegetable)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (or balsamic, apple cider, rice, sherry, or other wine vinegar)
  • Pinch of kosher salt.
  • A turn of freshly ground black pepper.
  • 3 oz. Top Sirloin

Any Salad Veggies from the approved list.

Instructions: Season steak with salt and pepper, then grill until cooked to desired doneness. Top salad with steak, veggies of your choosing and Oil & Vinegar Dressing.

Meal 4: Stir Fry with Steak, Chicken, or Fish (Soy Sauce Substitute)

For best flavor, do this the night before needed.

Soy Sauce Substitute:

  • ¾ cup vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons dark molasses
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder

Instructions: Heat vinegar slightly. Pour over peeled and sliced garlic cloves to taste. Let stand overnight, strain and discard garlic. In a glass jar, combine 3/4 cup garlic vinegar with molasses and onion powder. Refrigerate and use as needed. Warm and shake well before using. Lasts about 1 month refrigerated.

Option #1: MODERATE CARB DAY PLAN RECIPES

This is where you are at a little higher carb intake, more moderate, so you will feel better and have a little more energy. Remember not to over eat those portions. There are 3 plans to choose from on these moderate carb days.

Meal 1: Fluffy Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 12cups rolled oats
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1teaspoon baking powder
  • 1teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • egg, lightly beaten
  • cup nonfat milk
  • 1teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions: Put oats in a blender or food processor and blend about one minute, or until ground to a flour consistency. Combine oat flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Combine egg, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl and mix well. Stir liquid mixture into dry mixture; mix until just moist. Allow to sit 5 minutes.

Heat a nonstick large skillet or griddle over medium heat. When hot, pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake. Turn over and cook until lightly browned.

Make a few days worth of pancakes in advance. Count how many pancakes you make in one serving and freeze one serving together in a zip top bag. Pop in the toaster when you’re ready to eat!

Meal 4: Ginger Glazed Fish

Glaze:

  • Salt to taste
  • Optional: 1ts soy sauce

Ingredients for Meal:

  • Ginger glaze
  • regular tilapia, mahi-mahi or any white fish,
  • 8-10 pecans
  • Steam any veggies from the approved list.

Instructions: Place fish in a baking dish with marinade and top with salt and pepper. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes or more. Heat coconut oil in a pan over med/high heat. Fry the fish for 4-6 minutes on each side, turning once until it flakes easily. 

You can also grill the fish on the bbq until cooked through. Pour remaining marinade into pan and heat to boiling to make a glaze. Drizzle 1 T. glaze and sprinkle pecans over the fish and veggies.

Meal 5 (or Pre Workout): Chocolate Coconut Fudge (can meal prep the night prior)

  • Chocolate protein (1 scoop)
  • 1 ½ t. coconut oil
  • melted ¼ t. cocoa
  • sweetener to taste

Instructions: Stir together protein, coconut oil, cocoa, and sweetener to taste. Add 1-2 T. of water ½ T at a time until it’s brownie batter consistency. Freeze for 2 hours. Thaw for 20 minutes before eating!

Option #2: MODERATE CARB DAY PLAN RECIPES

These receipes are from the second option for your regular moderate carb days.

Meal 2: Buffalo Chicken (meal prep night prior)

  • Chicken 3-5 breasts
  • Brown rice cooked (1/2 c.)
  • Avocado (1/8 medium)
  • Buffalo Chicken Sauce Recipe below

Instructions: Pre cook rice according to the package. Either marinade or pour Buffalo Sauce on the chicken before baking.  Combine all ingredients along with any steamed veggies you’d like. Season with sea salt and pepper. If you don’t like buffalo sauce, see the recipe for an alternate flavoring.

Buffalo Chicken Sauce:

  • 16 tablespoons (1 cup or 8 ounces) unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder or 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 1/3 cups hot sauce, like Frank’s

Melt butter in a medium pan over medium-low heat until melted. Remove pan from the heat to prevent the sauce from breaking. Whisk in the garlic powder and hot sauce until a thicker sauce forms about 1 minute. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 month — mason jars are great for this.

*Using chilled sauce: Since there is butter in the sauce, it will thicken when refrigerated. To use, give the thickened sauce a good stir then spoon out what you need into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 10 to 15 seconds then stir or whisk until the sauce comes back together.

Meal 5: Maple Nut Fudge

  • 2 cups smooth, pecan butter, almond butter, or peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Instructions:  Line a small loaf pan or square cake pan (8 x 8 inch works well) with parchment paper and set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, melt your pecan butter with coconut oil. Stir in your pure maple syrup and mix until fully incorporated. Four fudge mixture into the lined cake pan/loaf pan and refrigerate for at least an hour, until firm.
* These are high calorie, but low carb…and they are a great natural food alternative to a Snickers, Oreos, or something that is carbolicious

Option #3: MODERATE CARB DAY PLAN RECIPES

These receipes are from the second option for your regular moderate carb days.

Meal 2: Honey Lime Dressing: to pour over baked or shredded chicken

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed or canola oil (or other preferred mild tasting oil)

Instructions: In a blender. Add everything except the 2 oils to the blender and mix until combined. With the blender running, add the oils in a thin stream through the hole in the blender lid. Blend until well mixed.
–In a bowl. Whisk together everything except the 2 oils. Continue whisking while adding the oils in a thin stream. Keep whisking until well combined

Meal 2 Option: Homemade Ranch Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or crema
  • Juice of 1 lemon wedge
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • Pinch onion powder
  • Pinch salt and fresh ground black pepper

Instructions: Combine everything together in a bowl and whisk. 

Meal 3: No Bake Protein Bars

  • 1 cup of old-fashioned oats
  • 2 scoops of chocolate or vanilla protein powder – sweetened with stevia only
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or milled flax seeds
  • ½ cup of milk or water
  • 1 cup of natural peanut butter – no sugar added
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
 Instruction: Combine the milk, peanut butter, and honey in a large bowl. Microwave for 15 seconds. Stir and microwave for an additional 15 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl.
Balls: Roll into little bite-size balls. Store in an air-tight container in your freezer or fridge for up to one week.
 
Bars: Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Freeze for at least 15 minutes. Cut into bars [I made 8]. Store in an air-tight container in your freezer or fridge for up to one week.
 
 
Meal 5: Honey Chicken Stir-Fry
  • 2 ts olive oil
  • 2-5 chicken breasts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Natural soy sauce or steak sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 Tb honey – organic and raw
Instructions: In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat; stir–fry chicken and garlic 1 minute. Add honey, soy sauce, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan.

A tip to never forget!
When in doubt about calories in a food you want to make,
it's better to add spices than sauces.

The 5 Most Important Practices For Tween Relationships It's Common-and Parents Can Help

To parents or older siblings, tweens sometimes can come across cold, depressed, immature, and tons of other crazy personalities, which is why we need to encourage them and love them unconditionally. However, the most important practice is to get them talking at a deeper level. Current handling of tween relationships is the cornerstone for their adult ones. I have six teenagers, three of them are still considered, however. These are five top practices to implement with your tween.

1. Each Tween is Different-Even Twins

I have 6 teenagers right now. They are all so very different, even my twins, yet they all have gone through, or are growing through, that awkward stage of discovering not only who they really are, but where their true friends reside.

Social media can be superficial, fake, and leave tweens with empty or raw emotions mainly because of the lack of love and relationship depth. We all know a quick post can wreck a friendship so fast. One of my twins will brush off an offense faster than her sibling, or so it appears that way, while the other takes things personally and is more sensitive.

Girls may act differently on the outside, but what really is going on in their heart is what I as a parent am more interested in. We talk about their differences on a weekly basis. This deeper level of communication makes them both think a little more before they test, post or communicate with others too.

2. Comments from Childhood Matter

If we think back to our youthful days, there will always be a few comments from others that stuck out. One of mine still comes to mind when I hear of bullying at school. This small little thing no more than 90 pounds, back in my Junior High days, walked around like she owned the school. She was rude to almost everyone except her little close groupie-which she led. I always wondered why she was the pack leader.

She would pick physical fights with most girls she was in competition with or bluntly-jealous of. I was no exception to her schemes and I found myself backed up to my locker one day praying for a teacher to walk by.  To my surprise, she bluntly told me she didn’t want me around being in competition with her and that I needed to stop being perfect. Whatever did that mean?

This situation and comment sticks with me today. I’ve thought about it over the years and realized the hurt behind her words. I found out she was in a terrible home situation and was looking for attention in all the wrong places. She needed others to see her value. She needed good friends to love and cherish her because she wasn’t getting it at home.

Had I been able to talk to an adult about this in a deeper way my Junior High years would have been a lot easier. As any tween, I resented this poor peer leader and did all the normal things, someone, my age would have. I gossiped about her, told people how much I hated her for treating people so bad.  I should have felt sorry for her and tried to help.

This is why the importance of speaking to kids about hurtful situations, learning tactful responses and being able to identify a hurting friend can speed up the maturity process and inhibit damaging years ahead for our tweens in this day and age.

3. Tweens Can Fool You, Be Prepared

Do you truly know what’s going on with your tween on social media, or do you just think you do?  (read: To Peek or Not to Peek?) The number one things I find out when talking to parents about their tween is that they don’t really know what’s going on. They ‘think’ they do. They talk to their kids about their day and events that happened, but not much more.

Girls might give a few more details about situations than some boys, but on a daily basis, we are missing out those deeper constructive conversations.


“Hey kiddo, how’d today go? Anything exciting happen? Did you learn anything today?” said parent.

“Not really. But I did dissect a fish and the smell was terrible. Sydney even got fish guts on her because Sandy spilled the jar!” replied tween. “Sydney is so mad. She posted that she hates Sandy and told everyone to watch out for the clutz. Then Sandy said Sydney was a snitch because she told the teacher and got her in trouble. They both had to go to the counselor’s office and things got way worse just on the way home. It’s like a cat fight on snap chat! Sydney even told me not to talk to Snitchy Sandy.”

“Well, that’s not good! Hopefully, she’ll get the smell out of her clothes and those girls will work it out. Don’t get involved honey. Sad they are getting others involved. Ready for basketball?” replied parent.

“Yea, let me just get a snack, I’m starved,” said tween.

And the family heads into the rest of their evening with traveling, eating, and smaller chit-chat.  Do you think the tween will stay out of the ‘catfight’?


4. Make Time for Your Tween When THEY are Ready

There is a time and place for everything, but sometimes the time and place won’t line up with our timeline. Ouch. When our kids want to talk, we have to put our stuff down and look them in the eye and engage – Oh, I wish I would do better at this. I’m still trying my best to be intentional about it.

Sometimes kids will spill their guts at nighttime when they are refusing to sleep, and others are like gushing water leaking every detail of their day when they walk in the door. Timing is everything and they are a huge priority in these tween years.

5. If They Don’t Talk – Ask Them Questions

The most important thing is to ask them deeper questions, you know, the ones that don’t require a yes or no answer. Get to the bottom of why they are telling you things. Ask them why they felt a certain way, how things happened, get to the root of what led to the relationship fall out and how they could fix it or do better next time.

We are teaching our kids how to handle relationships every day, regardless if we are audibly telling them. If we ignore their deeper side and don’t instruct them on how to handle daily smaller issues, they will come up with how they are modeled by others – which usually isn’t the solution.

Implementing these five practices can significantly increase relationships. I’d love to hear your suggestions on how you encourage your tween relationships.

“Sarah Hansel has been my inspiration on my fitness journey.  She leads by example with daily exercise and healthy eating and has taught me a great deal about living the “fit” life.  As a woman who travels for work and eats out (sometimes 3 meals per day) I struggle to maintain weight.  And I also struggle to work in work outs.  She has helped build workout plans that I can do in hotel rooms with no equipment!  And because of her, my 7 year old daughter and I are avid label readers and we know to look out for too much sugar, sodium, etc. on any packaged foods we choose to eat.  Although, we have also learned from Sarah that FRESH IS BEST!!”

“Sarah is always giving everyone informational positive advice on how to better care for themselves.  She motivates everyone to keep striving for their fitness goals, no matter how big or small.  She is always researching health and exercise benefits and handing out healthy recipes and meal plan ideas for anyone who wants them.  She gives out “goodies” to those who have done their homework or made their goal.  Not only is she a good personal training provider but also genuinely cares for everyone she comes in contact with, regardless whether they are on a fitness journey or just a life journey.  She is truly a good friend.”

“I’ve seen the love of Christ through this amazing woman, Sarah Hansel.  She is inspiring with grace and love.  I’m diabetic and have struggled with food my entire life. My relationship with food was unhealthy.  Sarah offered me an opportunity to take her class. I prayed hard about it because I hated working out!  I knew this was a gift from God.  That was a little over a year ago.  Not only did I focus on the class and challenges Sarah presented, she would encourage me through emails, at church, and messages. Every encouragement was given with so much love.  She genuinely cares about your wellbeing and has a definite gift for teaching nutrition and wellness. She broke things down and gave easy to follow instructions. I lost in total 75 lbs in 6 months and gained a new relationship with food and my body.  Feed your body like it’s your temple!”
