      I carb cycle and I run on my low carb day to burn fat. I go at a slow pace so I don't burn muscle, but on my no/low carb day do you think a slow 5 mile jog will burn muscle at all?

      I cycle high/medium/low. I lift on high/medium and run on low. In general isn't running at a slow pace only go into fat and not glycogen storage?

      I eat 300 grams of carbs on high days, 150 on medium and about 50 on low. I consistently have 150 grams of protein (my weight is 150 I'm 6 feet and 19 year old male). My fat intake is about 50 grams on high carb, 90 medium, and 110 on low carb.

      Your fine. Cardio in modest amounts is not a cause for concern pertaining to muscle retention. People focused on muscle building just like to freak out about things.

      So much fail. So now you have to cardio cycle on your carb cycle to lose fat?
