I think you will be safe experimenting with carbs post workout and at night.

have you tried any of the other common simple supplements like melatonin or zinc prebed? the 5htp can help, but melatonin is more direct.

No I haven't tried anything - ill try the carb thing then melatonin if the problem persists. Thanks for your input.

interesting thread, im on im on the same diet to lose last remaining fat, my sleeping patterns are **** aswell. what i noticed is my hands and feet felt cold alot of times i think its got to do with thyroid and metabolism slow down so i increased my carbs and felt better.

The carb ups correctly which caused my sleep to get disrupted -
Just wondering what the thoughts are on
Post workout shakes? Would you of would you not have some carbs in your post workout shake to prevent muscle breakdown?
I didn't add carbs post workout as I thought it would disrupt the ketosis however it felt wrong.

To be honest you could hardly call them a carb up -
I basically just had a cheat meal for lunch and dinner on saturdays which had more carbs in them.
I do know how to do a better carb up - just didn't put much effort into it at that stage.
Just curious about using carbs post workout to prevent muscle breakdown or do you not have carbs post workout as you'll disrupt ketosis?

I am not doing the keto diet anymore just working on getting more calories into my diet to
Get some muscle gains. Was eating far too little for too long....
Keto was by far the best diet I've used to get lean.

Ya that was probably the issue. Not enough carbs to really replenish glycogen stores. Plus sounds like you possibly didn't eat enough period.Originally Posted by pixiethree
You could do post workout carb shakes plus 1 meal with carbs. Might not be as effective at getting lean but should help build muscle. Basically what I have been doing.

Yeah I've just upped my calories and am using simple carbs around training times - feeling pretty good
But technically in a keto diet when getting
Lean is your goal you'd skip on the carbs til your carb up days. Different things for different goals
