CK/Anabolic Diet mega thread
Seems that lots of people have questions about this diet. I myself have some and will certainly have more in the future.
Question: If I'm doing a 24 hour carb up on CKD, how many grams of carbs should I shoot for? 500? If I'm using this diet to cut, should I try and maintain the same caloric intake on the carb up day?

I'm curious as well, hope you don't mind me taking a seat to listen."I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

Not a problem at all. Hopefully there will be atleast 1 person who knows what they're doing. I have it set out for myself right now where I'll take 556g of carbs from friday night through last meal saturday.

From what you've read, do people still add carbs for their post workout shakes when they're on AD or carbs just on refeed days?
About how much fiber are you pulling in per day?

Only people who add carbs around work out are those on TKD or targeted ketogenic diet. Targeted meaning carb intake is targeted around workouts. I haven't had any strength issues (only endurance) with CKD so I haven't switched to TKD. I take just about 20g carbs ED Sunday-Friday night.
Theoretically on the CKD your insulin is so regulated and level that carbs in pwo aren't needed.

According to Lyle Macdonalds work, it's about 4.5 grams of carbohydrates per a pound of lean mass. Assuming you've worked off enough energy to sufficiently deplete glycogen levels through the week this should bring you back to 100 percent of your glycogen storage levels.

There's a calculator for it. I did the CKD/anabolic diet before. I dont reccomend a 24 hour carb load unless your under 8% BF.
I would also not pig out during this time either. Maybe have one bad meal but thats it. Keep fats relatively low like 80gr or so and keep protein the same. Your calories during this time don't really matter because your body is suppose to still be using the fat as fuel and the carbs should be shuttled to the muscles to restore glycogen levels.
I think I book marked the calculator but it also called for 24-48 hour carb loads, which IMO, are waaaaay too much for dieting.
IMO here's how the carb load time should be
18%+.....1 high carb meal 100gr carbs
15-17%.....2-4hr carb loads 150gr carbs
12-14%.....4-6hr carb load 200-250gr carbs
10-11%......6-8hr carb loads 250-300gr carbs
<10%.....12-24hr carb loads 300-400gr carbs.
again I have no science but just from what I have gathered with my diet over the years. I really don't see the point to go over 400gr carbs.

Rugger1, If you're going for full glycogen supercompensation then you need to be eating a lot more carbs on the weekend (and a carb up longer than 24 hours). This is what I used when cutting:
During the first 24 hours: 16xLBM(kg) For me this was about 1152g CHO during the first 24 hours. It is extremely difficult to consume this many carbohydrates during the first 24 hours if you don't drink liquid carbs (in the form of simple sugars and glucose polymers). It may seem difficult to eat this much (especially becuase you're eating a grip of protein as well), but you need to tough it out because you only do it once a week.
During the second 24 hours: about 8-10xLBM(kg) At this point insulin sensitivity begins to decline so the second 24 hours should consist of solid starches (rice, potatoes, pasta, etc.).
You don't need to be scared if your carb up lasts a bit longer than 48 hours. Sometimes mine would last 50 hours or so. The above protocol is Dan Duchaine's and helped me to lose some good bodyfat. The problem I think people have with carbing up and storing fat is that they keep the fat content too high during the carb up. The sweet spot is that 60/30/10. I could go into this with much greater detail but I don't think most people will want to follow this protocol because at first glance they just write this carb up off thinking that its going to make them fat. What people don't understand is that a CKD is not a cutting diet, but it is rather a recomposition diet. Your workouts need to coincide with your glycogen levels in order to reap the benefits of this diet. Without getting everything in order you're better off just sticking to a different diet because the results will be less than stellar, IMHO.

That is a very good article. One of the most important points you can take away from this article is that in order to achieve maximum glycogen supercompensation your carb load should start IMMEDIATELY following a depletion workout.

So for the first 24, just eat simples like malto, wms, gatorate, white bread etc? I think that will be really hard to do in large numbers. What would some other foods be that are high in simples but can be eaten in bulk? Wouldn't regular pasta instead of wheat pasta fit this bill for the first 24?

Even if you go with a protocol with less carbs and protein you should still follow the types of carbs I have suggested. And don't go above 10% fat whatever you do during the carb up. This can slow digestion as well as the insulin response that we are trying to set up. As far as the amount of carbs and protein I have listed, none of this is set in stone. Honestly, the entire feild of nutrition is still in its infancy. If you used a different protocol you will still see results, I am just telling you what has worked best for me through trial and error.

Thanks for the tips. I really appreciate it. I'll plan something out that includes lots of simples for the beginning and then just piling on as much as I can. I assume it's safe to say that caloric intake can be disregarded.

I'm sorry if I rambled there. I don't know if I really answered your question. Did you want me to post a sample of a full body depletion workout?
