After years of not working out I finally started myself on TKD. I'm very familiar with working out and ketosis, since in the past I used to go on CKD with great results. Almost a couple of month ago I cut all carbs before I even got back to working out. So for a month almost I was technically on a regular keto diet. Getting into ketosis was a piece of cake and so was staying in it. And I was shedding off bf pretty quickly. Then a month ago I started working out and shifted to TKD. Which was my original intention. At first I tried consuming carbs both pre and post w/o. But soon enough decided it wasn't a good idea, when it took me more than 24h to get back into ketosis. So I started consuming only pre o/w carbs, but that didn't work too well. Again it took me more than 24h to get back. Then I cut my carb intake from 10-15g to 10g and started doing hiit the following morning (i mostly work out in the after noon-evening). Still not much luck with getting back into ketosis. Actually it got worse, I don't seem to be able to get back into it at all. Even after 2 days. So now I started on NA-R-ALA. Took 300g post w/o (did it around noon this time). By midnight still no sign of ketosis. Took another 200g and went to bed. In the morning now sign of ketosis still. I just took another 200g but I'm starting to loose hope
I keep my workouts to a min. 2-3 per week. My total carb intake on non w/o days is less than 40g and on w/o days almost the same because I make sure to consume even less carbs during the day so I don't go over 40-50g in total.
I'm completely lost. I can't figure out what could be wrong.
I'm stuck at 22.5% b/f and can not make any progress.
My target bf btw is 19-20%. I'm not into competing. Just looking good :P
My w/o are non the less very intensive (6-8 reps)
What could I be doing wrong????
