so basically this is just a ckd right?
just checked out ur pics, nice work. what workouts did u follow while on the ckd?
it is a cycling ketogenic diet. lyle delves into very specific metabolic processes that occur and how to better manipulate them to achieve a lower body fat percentage. without getting too specific, my workouts were all full body. 2 glycogen depleting workouts that consisted of very high reps. 1 “tension” workout with moderate weight that is used to assist in super compensating glycogen stores, and finally a “power” workout that requires low reps and high intensity. i was actually able to get STRONGER while achieving a low body fat percentage. i may have been over trained before hand and only doing 1-2 days of near maximal weight helped, but this is just speculation.
ive heard that higher reps are a lot harder on keto. when i did keto for about 7 weeks awhile back i dont remember any problem in particular with my rep ranges.
right now im in the middle of lyle mcdonalds book on keto. it’s really informative and i’m just getting into the diet section now, hopefully it’s close to what he describes in this 2.0 one. if not i guess i could just ask people here but i’m pretty sure it’s close.
i’m actually considering doing a TKD bulk depending on how well carb cycling goes, so far it’s been going fine though
