Will whey-supplementation (some 20 grams) during workouts to avoid catabolism, halt fat-burning to such an extent that the little-muscle preservation one get from it is not really worth it, when getting ripped and not focusing on getting big?
Since the body’s ATP energy-production is (I guess) pretty much shut down due to lack of carbs while in ketogenesis, will supplementation with creatine and/or ribose have any benefit?
T-Dawg on it, is it any use in loading up on creatine and all that, in the months when I am building mass, if I am just loosing it all while in ketogenesis anyway?
What about testosterone? Since muscle-growth is going to be limited anyhow while on a ketogenesis-diet, does it make any sense or benefit to supplement with T-boosters like “Tribex” and/or “ZMA” while on a ketogenesis-diet? (If I am not particularly building any muscles anyhow, why care about maximum T-levels? Besides, with all that fat and cholesterol, won’t T-levels be quite high anyway?) Does high-testosterone levels offer any particular fat-burning prospects?
To relieve myself from the inevitable carb-cravings, is it ok to drink SUGAR-FREE soft-drinks (that however contains aspartame other calorie-free sugar-substitutes) while on ketogenesis-diet? And what about SUGAR-FREE chewing-gum?
Also, I have heard that the sparkling carbonised water in soft-drinks ruins either fat-burning prospects, or it ruins protein-metabolism, I don’t quite remember which. Is there any truth in this?
I thank you for your time and I hope this doesn’t cause too much trouble to answer.
With best regards,
