Question about tkd diet
I've been reading up and I think it's pretty much summed up as" on workout days,eat your carbs before,during,and after your exercise and nothing else."
Makes perfect sense but my question is,are you supposed to be having the same amount as you would on a regular keto or should you be getting more carbs..the reason I ask is because they say you're going to come out of ketosis when you eat before your workout and I didn't think that with the keto or the tkd that you were supposed to but I'm not sure

Its really going to depend on how many carbs your body can handle.
With regular keto though, no you dont want to come out of ketosis unless you have a specified carbup day/meal.
This is timed, so at specific times you ingest carbs and then at other times of the day you keep blood sugar as low as possible.E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

Yeah I would probably only eat carbs right before my workout I just didn't know if you're supposed to have the common 30g like you would for a normal keto diet or if you would need to go over that for the tkd.

I have been on standard keto diet for over 50 days now and my weightlifting is starting to suffer, with strength etc. I am wanting to try TKD on workout days maybe eating just 30g of carbs before my workout just to help with getting thru the workouts. What is the best carb to eat if I do this before workout??? I want the muscle to be able to use the carbs for the workout if possible then get back into ketosis as soon as possible. I workout on Mon. Tues. Thurs. Fridays. Any info/help would be greatly appreciated everybody, thanks.

dextrose or malto-dextrin would be a good choice as it will go strait to the muscles and produce a large insulin spike but then also a crash which should help you get back into a near keto state quicker.

With a TKD only consume carbs preworkout (maybe intra if needed, but certainly not post). Somewhere around 30g is the sweet spot for me--but it's going to take some experimentation to see what works for you.
Sugar is best. Gummy bears are fine, fun sized candies, etc. Or if you feel too guilty gatorade or something like Glycofuse from Gaspari is good
