    Carbohydrates are a nonessential macronutrient. Problem is the standard American diet is outrageously high in carbs, and eating keto feels like punishment because everyone else in America is getting fatter by maxing on carbs every time they eat/drink.

    It's all mental. The body will do what the mind tells it to. You can do it if you want to. A victim mentality will just enable you to stay overweight.

    Sorry to rant, but I have very strong feelings on this. I've been there and still struggle with my fatness. I teach high school kids and most can't go 20 minutes without juice/chips/candy. I can't deal with victim mentality.

    I understand how it works, even did it for a couple months. It's a very obvious switch when your body goes keto. I specifically remember how bogged down I was getting and foggy-headed, then all of a sudden I woke up and was full of energy. What I don't like is that even though fat is a sustained energy source, if you push yourself to an activity level that requires more than your body can get from fat, it's starts pulling from protein...baaaaad lol. I think the real win is being able to find just how much carbs you need to efficiently do the work you're doing and keeping them complex so your body can use them more efficiently. Do this, eat the protein you need to maintain/repair/build, take in enough fats to provide sustained energy, provide hormone regulation, and brain function...and then simply increase or decrease calories based on what your goals are. I've recently dialed my diet in thanks to some pretty smart people on AM and can say I've never felt better overall!

    3fs, you have found something that works for you and many people. I'm fine with your Keto passion but because I am not a Keto devotee doesn't mean I have a "victim mentality". I have been keeping my carbs below 200 on most days, which is far below the standard American diet. I feel strong and I think it's evident from my pics that I'm making progress. I value your support and I understand your perspective but there are many ways to get into shape. My future progress will be my proof.

    Keep Killing it,

    Well, more like lower carbs on off days. You will still lose fat at 100g but lower will happen faster. It's your world man, I just hate the fat guy I was and want to help. I think many people don't know why they're fat nor how to get un-fat. But you clearly grasp the concepts and practice well.
    Apologies for the rant. That's just the tip of how a formerly bullied fat kid feels.

    Definitely drop carbs on off day and raise fat to maintain the same calories...maybe a little under. Then give yourself a refeed day where you keep everything the same except increase carbs to eat a surplus of 1000-1500 calories. Because you're so depleted by the end of your workout week most of those carbs will go towards replenishing glycogen and give you energy to burn the following week. My favorite day of the week!

    keep it up over the weekend. I know it's always more difficult for me to regulate my eating on the weekends since I'm home more-- and have to pass through the kitchen on the way to the bathroom. Who's idea was that layout? lol

    Just read through it. I'm enjoying this site (newb). So much support and advice on here its addicting to read this stuff. That leg routine was a good one. Even had some lunges in there. Men at my gym never want to get those lunges in.

    Oh hey, I was thinking for myfitnesspal you can edit your macro goals so you're not always hi on fat and low on carbs. Have to be on the computer, go to goals-->edit goals-->customize. You can change your macros to whatever you like (I used 15%c 40%f and 45% p)
