To the knowledgeable:
I need to lose 15-25 lbs. I been going the ketogenic way for the past 3 days. I tried the AD before and it worked but now I’m playing soccer 2-4 times per week plus lifting. I also like doing sprints here and there, maybe twice a week if my body allows it.
Now the question is, should I continue with a ketogenic diet or should I up the carbs. Perhaps I was thinking of some options and wanted opinions.
OPTION 1: Ketogenic with carb up every 6th day
Option 2: Carb cycling- On days where I play soccer eat carbs for breakfast, post workout( if i lift that day of course) and post soccer. Would be looking at around 150g-250g on days like this one.
Option 3: a better suggestion
My question with option 2. On days where I need to keep my carbs low, should protein be higher or should I up my fat to a ketogenic diet amount.
To wrap it up: Ketogenic or carb cycling?
If carb cycling: Should I go high protein or high fat on low carb days?
Any insight or opinions are greatly appreciated.
