I bet you already naturally carb cycle.

Do you have a PWO shake with sugar in it on off days? Most likely not, that is a form of carb cycling, i.e. 200 carbs on off day, 200 + 50 in shake = 250 g on training day.

Or, ever take in more carbs for a grueling session and less for shorter session? Again, carb cycling.

Don't make it more complex than it has to be. I like the idea of "eat for what you do"

Naturally, if you are not doing much, carbs will be lower, if you are highly active they will be higher.
