i have researched and have decided to start the CKD diet?? i have outlined a food list, but was wondering if anyone had a good link for a complete food list for the diet part?? thanks
Pretty easy. Meat, eggs, good fats.. some leafy greens like spinach in limited quantities. If it's a true CKD, then you have a supercompensation phase. It would do you good to look at Militant Underground Body Opus by Dan Duchaine if you want a good CKD plan.
I have heard of that, I'll check it out.
In reality you take what works from programs (if you understand the concepts) and make it work for you as an individual.
CKD works for me tremendously well. I am very lean, with very prominent abs for the majority of the year, and still build LBM due to the supercompensation periods. Some people go to sh1t without carbs, some don't.
I would be one of those that go to **** without carbs, carb cycling or just eating the majority of my carbs around workouts seems to do the trick though.
CKD is carb cycling by definition. A lot of carb cycling programs have frequent fluctions of carbs, but some have the long droughts.
I've got a CKD question. I read in an article http://www.wannabebig.com/printarticle.php?articleid=34 that you want 1.5 gm of fat to 1 gm of protein, and at least 1gm of protein per pound of lean body mass.
Holy cow, how do I get that much fat in a day? It would be 240g, so basically a full 8 oz. do I need to drink a cup of olive oil? I suppose that will help cut out the atkins constipation
Is that ratio off? cause with the 9 cal / g of fat, that would mean 2160 cals from fat, 680 from protein
Basically what Ubi said above is the best advice for any type of diet.
I supplemented flax, fish and coconut oil w/my diet (that I used to get the physique in my avvy) and it made it that much easier.
My wife is stopping by a local Wild Oats (organic market) who has coconut oil, so I should be all set!

shots of EVOO for the win!

It's a good read as you consider your strategy.
I've done a couple carb-cycling approaches - Twin Peak's Carb Cycle, and Lyle's Ultimate Diet 2.0. Both are great, though I do prefer Lyle's approach as it coordinates a specific training plan to go with it to maximize nutrient partitioning and take advantage of the glycogen supercompensation effect on carb-up day.
You can check out his book here if you haven't seen it.
Even if you don't follow the diet, the first half of the book is an awesome reference for the physiology education alone.
