Is the Keto diet optimal for people who already have experience losing fat the real way but they’re bored/need motivational spike to a new diet?
I first heard of keto diet like several years ago 2010-2012 of bodybuilders going in it (or carb cycling too) before competing
Now it’s a trend and even people who don’t workout do it lol.
At least a couple people I know tell me they had success with it while keeping the weight off in last couple months.
I tried a 30 gram low carb diet and lost 25lb in 6 weeks sometime in 2016 than gained 10 back and it was hard to maintain other weight off but I got use to it eating my own way…
Keto is 50 grams carbs max and high fat…and I guess I’ll add high protein since it keeps one satieted.
When I officially start this idk right now I’m mentally brainstorming
I’ve been wanting to get under 20% bf or lower for a couple years but my diet is too inconsistent to lose a good amount of fat overtime. …so I just stay around maintenance usually. I have lost 30+lbs over 3+ months twice in my life and gained it back however my body composition changed in different ways. I have no problem with cardio as I already do 3+hours per week after I lift.
Right now I’m 5’7" 235lbs 23% bf using calipers but probably closer to 28-30% using the “eye” test. And would like to be under 200lbs.
What do you think about keto? I’m with IFBB pro Greg Doucette on this and believe diets are stupid and the normal way is better but I wanna try it out of boredom vs staying same weight / being inconsistent on a lower calorie meal plan.
