    CKD carb up?


    I am running CKD currently, had good success with it last year. I am wondering for carb up, is it ok to take in a large quantity of carbs in liquid? Last year, I pretty much always kept them as solid food, and felt like crap at the end of the day. I had trouble getting past 500-600 carbs for my refeed. I still had good success but am wanting to try more liquid carbs to try and keep bloated feeling down.

    My initial thought would be stick with whole food. But what type of CKD are you running in terms of when are you doing your re-feeds and how long?

    So the method you're running is an "all-day" once a week carb-refeed, right? If it's an all day thing, I would think having some liquid/powder forms wouldn't be terrible, though not optimal. When I've ran keto, I've gone with mini re-feeds (~175g carbs) 2 nights a week, and in that case it's easier to get the whole foods down and would be less of a need for anything other than whole food contributing.
