Traditional keto diets use fat for fuel by increasing fat intake and minimizing carbohydrates. Keto cycling may prove a more sustainable approach for some because it allows for high-quality carbs one to two days out of the week. Proponents of keto cycling, like Boyers, say it keeps your body more efficient by keeping it uncertain of its fuel source. Her book has plenty of helpful tips, recipes, and sample menus.  While cycling won’t support dieters having their cake and eating it too – the keto English muffins weren’t bad.
