Thought I'd start a new thread but I have just a few more questions left that are confusing me about this diet... ie how should I do this or if I should do it at all?
Avocados... are they acceptable food to eat on the keto diet?
here is their nutritional breakdown:
CalorieKing.com.au - Food Data. Nutrition information about your favourite food. fat, fibre, protein and more
Good amount of fat... and also quite carby... however, a large chunk of those carbs are fibre... ie per that 1cup 150g serving, you get 12.8carbs but 10.1 of them are fibre... so essentially 12.8-10.1 = 2.7 are only counted towards your daily carb total (trying to keep it ~30g/day) ...did I do that right? -- I am asking because I read recently in a t-nation article regarding keto that avocados can kick you out of keto? So I am confused...
I am still confused regarding pre and post carbs. Are they needed? How beneficial are they? If so... how much should I get pre and post... (any suggestions on what food also is good for a carb source pre/post while on keto?)... and also... does this count towards my daily total of carbs? If not... why not...? I have read people talking about pre/post carbs on keto... but does it not run the risk of kicking you out of keto? ..?
Creatine I understand is fine... not as effective without carbs but still good to take... but what about BCAAs? Any issues with them? I would be considering taking them pre/post my 20-30min cardio sessions... or 2hours after my last carb meal on my carb-up day as my BCAA's are 50% leucine which helps knock you into keto faster due to its effects on insulin
Hope someone can clear this up for me... thanks
