Hi I'm shortly goin to try this for 4 week any experience and tips to share?? Looking to really drop the body fat % now.. 90kg body fat roughly 20-25% ive been told.. Thanks
its not any better for fat loss than any other diet just so as you know. you can get the same to better results just by modulating the amount of carbs you take in, without dropping them super low.
That said, its not particularly worse for fat loss either.
4 weeks prob isn't going to be long enough
For me, using my anecdotal experience, I can eat a lot more on atkins diet, maintain intense workouts, and still lose weight. However, you won't lose that much weight in 4 weeks. Try 8-12 weeks.
Some people don't like the diet, but for me, it works great.
Ok thanks.. See I've only got a month now till holiday so left it late it's my last attempt to trim down seen as iv plateaued out
I have done the keto diet a couple of times. I like Lyle McDonalds diet/book the best. I used this diet to once loose ~20lbs in less than 2 weeks. I only used this diet to drop stupid amounts of weight to make a certain weight for a MMA competition. I haven't done it in a while, but I know it works. I got really tired of just eating meat and fat. I gained all the weight back on when I returned my normal diet. It works, but can leave you tired and 'out of it'. Hope this helps... good luck!
Thanks alot.. I started it today only thing I'm struggling with is the hunger side. I enjoy the diet but also need to keep my protein intake to a set limit which I find tricky to exceed tbh.. Hopefully itl settle after a few days once I'm used to it.
Good luck!! Keep me posted with your progress
Can anyone take a look an see if this is ok? A days diet on keto is as follows;
4 eggs scrambled, 4 rashes of bacon fried in butter.
Lettuce, mayo, 100g cheddar cheese, tin of tuna salad.
200g chicken breast & 50g cheddar, broccoli
Protein shake 50g protein.
Broccoli, 2x pork steaks,mayo.
Pepperoni few slices
I don't want you guys to rip me to shreds for not been scientific with macros etc but that's a average day. I'm 23yr old, 5"11, 89kg. BF % unsure as I don't own calipers. I'm quite lean everywere apart from lower back an bottom lip of stomach, can c upper abs..
I think u need more protein & fat. I ate In-n-Out 4x4's protein style, eggs, cheese, tuna, chicken, & pure protein powder. Be careful that u are not eatting too many carbs. I really ate NO CARBS and ZERO SUGAR. Mayo and other condiments have tons of sugar. I couldn't even eat beef jerkey... Sugar! Cheese & nuts, avocado, are your friends. It has been a couple years sine I did a Keto cycle and I don't know the recent theory. Go to Lyle MacDonalds site. He is AMAZING! Hope this helps.
Thank again.. Carbs are really low just checked all food packets.. I'm getting 200g of protein I've worked on 1g protein per lb of weight.. Is that correct.
I think that sounds right. I can't seem to find my keto book right now to help you any further with exact numbers you should run. Like I said... check out Lyle McDonald. He is the expert and has lots of free information on his website and forums.
I'd say .8g/lb is a better bet, as your body can convert protein to glucose via gluconeogenesis, so you don't want excess protein either. So the rest of calories from fat.
I've done Keto for a couple years (on and off). Good diet to lose the fat however it's vital you keep your macros in check. After you get over the hump of being tired you won't notice it (tiredness) anymore. I was able to still lift like a champ, however also switched my workout routine to more of a fat burning/shaping one (as opposed to heavy). One thing I loved about Keto diet was my re-feed! Whoa...now that rocked (haha).
I have since left Keto as I couldn't maintain muscle as easily. My protein intake was lower (by Keto design) in order for me to keep my macros and stay within calories.
Again good diet to strip the fat if you stick with it and are strict with it. Hell I was under 12-15g a day in carbs and felt totally fine without feeling lethartic (guess I got used to it after a while). I did bloat up like a champ during re-feeds though. But it went away quickly.
Thanks lost 3lb in 3 days I know thatl b water weight but atleast I'm through my plateau so I should be doing something correct atleast. I find it repeatative with the food but I suppose that's part of the deal
Yes you're losing water weight first. You should get some keto strips to see if you're in ketosis.
First few days were abit of a drag in gym. But got a second wind so to speak. First week in now and pretty much accepting it.. Hard knocking caffeine on the head though
Stick with it. You'll get used to it and feeling lethargic/tired will go away. Remember veggies and fiber are OK and don't count towards your carb intake.
