I am planning on starting to go keto starting this monday but had a few questions regarding how exactly the full diet works. I've read a couple of articles and some logs, but I just wanted to make sure before I start this thing.
First of, I'm planning to go for about 4-6 weeks, just wanted to get some of the extra weight off, would that be enough or too little? I will not be drinking at all during this time either and working out about 5x a week.
As I have understood, keeping under 30g carbs is best while doing this, where I am confused is some people say to have a carb up day, some people say to go full keto, so what's the deal? And as I understand, proteins and fat are good so if I go with bacon, sausages, etc, as long as I keep it under 30g of carbs I should be ok, right?
Another thing, there seem to be a few carbs that don't count as I understand. Was wondering what those were. Lettuce? Onions? Mushrooms? Eggplants? Broccoli? How about fruit like Apple? Any of those that I can consume "at will"?
As far as milk goes, am I aiming for fat free or 2% or what? Same deal with cheeses. Which one is best? Fat free or fat full?
I was also planning on taking Leviathan Reloaded, will that be ok or get in the way?
After the 6 weeks, what should I do to make sure I don't gain everything back in a week? I've never been high carb in my diet, but I would be drinking every now and then after such.
Thanks for any and all input.
