Hello Chris, TC and fellow T-Maggots,
OK, perhaps that isn’t exactly a term of endearment…
This is an Anabolic Diet related question!
In Bodyopus, Dan Duchaine was always very emphatic that you must enter ketosis to elicit a protein sparing effect, and to also potentiate the rebound effect from the weekend carb-fest.
On the other hand, also under the guise of minimizing catabolism, Dr D has stressed the importance of avoiding ketosis Monday - Friday by eating a small amount of carbs.
Holy contradictory view-points, Batman! OK guys- who exactly is right? Or, does it really matter? Am I getting to obsessed with the finite details? Did I mention I am one anal retentive bastard? I must confess, I find the idea of absolute ketosis a little unappealing. Then again, if you’re going to follow a diet, you might as well go all the way.
Please elaborate guys- and thanks again for the wonderful site!
