im just trying to bring the proverbial pendulum back to center in this forum. there are far to many people who think that the more extreme for restrictive a diet is, and make no mistake a keto diet is an extreme approach, the better it will work. what many do not take into account is that a diet must fit an individual psychologically as well as physiologically.
When someone declares one dietary approach is “The Best”, that statement completely fails to take into account the psychological aspect of dieting.
The best diet is the one that you can stick with. Obviously, if the OP wants to eat baked beans but can’t due to his diet, then maybe he should think about changing his diet so that he CAN eat baked beans.
If he can’t give up beans for a six-week cut, he shouldn’t be bodybuilding. I hear what you’re saying, and certainly some people won’t do well on a keto diet, but it is an incredibly effective way to cut fat quickly. I think it is the best, for numerous reasons I’m sure you already know. I’m doing it right now. Extreme approaches become less extreme when small periods of time are concerned. I wouldn’t do keto year-round, by any means. That would be unneccesarily uncomfortable.[/quote]
keto diets are also the best way to have a post-diet rebound, they are also a good way to mess with your body’s insulin sensitivity and slow the metabolism down.
imo it’s all about a good carb cycle, which is a type of keto diet, but most people associate keto diets with “no carbs at all they are the devil” when this is stupid.
Most people don’t need to be going that low to no carb unless they are trying to get to low bf% levels like a competitive bodybuilder. Most people don’t diet to get that lean (I’m talking striated glutes here).
now Vicomte…why in the hell are you doing a keto diet at your stats?!
