Dear Juan
If by carb cycling, you mean eating large quantities of carbs for certain periods and then reducing your carb intake again (?), I think that this will only work if you combine the regimen with a constant level of intense exercise. By doing aerobic exercises you will reduce your body fat percentage, but this takes time and most people nowadays want instant results. So be prepared to put in the effort to lose fat via exercise and the use of an energy-reduced diet.
Best regards
