    Replenishing carbs on the weekend for CKD is ****ing hardcore, worse than no carbs.


    So far, 12 hours into my 30 hour carb load phase I am only 600g's into it and I need 2300. This is very very difficult. Much harder than cutting out carbs altogether, although I do feel better mentally, I dont have that low-carb-lost-hope-feeling. I went out for Vietnamese Pho (noodle soup) twice last night and had a side of rice with it. Barely reached that evenings target.

    Why are you eating so many carbs all at once like that?. What gives the idea you need 2300 grams of carbs?. That is insane!

    Cyclic ketogenic diet. Its what came out of the calculator and what was discussed in the thread as the amount needed to recarb on the weekends for someone of my weight 220 lbs, 190lbm. So far I am half way there and about to pop.

    Calculator:
    CARB LOADING CALCULATOR
    Weight :190
    Results
    Protein 190 grams.
    Carbs 1900-2280 grams.
    Fat
    No more than 86 grams.


    ****, I need an average of 100g's of carbs an hour for the next 10 hours. I am really scared. 1113 so far

    I think you have an extra 0 behind your numbers.

    I highly doubt you would want 8000cal and above for a recarb/refeed.

    I've never done a CKD before, but in that article, it says 10-12g CHO per KG of bodyweight. What you have there is 10-12g CHO per POUND of LBM it seems.

    I'm seeing that too, the calculator is ****ed up it looks like.
    So she says 10-12g's per Kg, but the calculator gives you double that amount 20-24g's whether you enter your weight in pounds or kilo's.

    I emailed the author, I'll pray its the smaller amount.
