I personally like to go with a 7 day work out, legs and chest 3x a week then fill in the rest of the body and the days I am not doing legs and chest I also throw in cardio. been doing it for about a year and have had amazing results. you are just going to have to find something that works for you just by messing around and finding your groove. But I have to agree with the others here no matter what you do your diet is prolly the most important part of getting towards your goal.

Glutamine may have adverse effects in ketosis and needs to be individually assessed. To remain in ketosis one must have there liver out of glycogen. Since glutamine can aid in glycogen re-synthesis it may knock you out of ketosis or prevent you from entering ketosis. L-glutamine is broken down more in the muscles then used for glycogen storage and may be an alternative to glutamine. It is also notable that due to fact that glycogen stores are empty the lack of glucose may effect your brain functions in different ways. Though there is no direct evidence supporting it supplementing with Glutamine/L-glutaime may have positive effects on libido problems commonly found in males who are in ketosis.

I never mentioned anything about carbohydrates - I seriously recommend that you go back and READ what I wrote - but since you seem to be asking now, you can have carbohydrates before or after training, with post-training more important. You can be sensitive to carbohydrates and still eat them - you just need to find the right time for you to eat them, and experiment to see what types and how much you can get away with when.
I highly recommend that you do some personal research and look around some more as well as far as training for your goals - there's plenty of information out there. In saying that, if the 5x5 works for you, there's no reason why you can't continue with it.
Your posts in this thread do not really follow or make a lot of sense, so this is my final reply here.

Um, don't you mean a "full body" routine OR a "split" routine?
You can do a 5x5 (or any protocols etc.) utilizing the entire body in 1 W/O, or you can split the body to upper lower, push pull etc.
IMO the 80% principle works quite well for newbies trying to gain strength, ie: using 75%-80% of a 1 RM for multi sets and rep ranges 4-8.
As the others have said, fat loss is more diet/nutrition and proper eating habits.

5X5 isn't a routine; it's a rep/set scheme and can be used with any program.
Full body training or upper/lower split is what I always recommend for various reasons.
IMO, lower rep training is superior for athletes just getting into weightlifting due to the linear progressive programs.
For an intermediate / advanced lifter, both high reps, low reps and even speed reps are essential in development.

I started working out some 6 months ago and did a body split for 1 month or so.
So after 5 months of strength training (starting with SS and switching to CnP after a month) I bench 100kg squat 110 easy enough to do it gor tons of singles and DL 140 easy. At a bw of roughly 75kg. I never touched a barbell before, so I think thid is decent progress.
What I do now is just bench squat and dl 2x a week each, overhead press a ton and enjoy never going under 85% of 1RM for the big three.
I started training 3 times a week and added additional days when I felt like it. Currently training 6days a week, heavy every time.
For strength lift heavy, often and use barbells mostly. Anything more is overthinking it in the first few months.
And the possibly best advise is to just lift and read about it after you got a feel for your body and eeight training.
Wish I had done that
