Has anyone tried this diet and did it work? I am thinking about doing it as I am trying to get shredded for summer haha.
Good luck. It's a biatch, but it works WELL. Use clen or an ECA stack with it and you're laughing.
I was thinking about using this stack with it:
Lean Xtreme 2.0
That's a lot of stuff to be taking. Yohimbe is supposed to be great on a low-carb diet. I wouldn't know personally though because Australian customs steal it from me every time I try to order it!
Been working for me, I've been dropping weight and keeping/gaining muscle
I used an ECA stack w/ a halfway decent diet and didnt get the results I got from no stims and a quality diet. Plus I drink every weekend and I can see results.
I'll be posting pics/measurements next week of my progress in my log if you want to follow along.
I will def. be following....if I only remember haha, thanks for the reply's guys
so is there anywhere that has a CKD diet calculator that I can use instead of figuring everything out by myself? what can i say, im lazy.
~3.25-3.5" from my waist
< 1.0" from each major bodypart (chest,arms,legs etc...)
Clen or ECA would make for some crazy loses.
USPlabs Product Educator. I'm here to help you!
that seems like a lot of muscle loss there distilled water......
and nevermind i found a calculator
sorry bout that....im a little out of it right now...i think im going to start this diet next monday...might keep a log
No CKD. Been on a cyclic diet eating above maintainance for almost 6 months and have gained a substantial amount of muscle.
CKD is a great plan...just remember, if you are carb-sensitive, or prefer to lose more weight, you should limit your carb day one per week. Also, you should take sesamin on low/no carb days, and AP, or Glucophase or whatever glucose shuttling/disposal agent you prefer on your carb up day(s). be very meticulous about your depletion workout and this diet will slice you up nicely. If you are only carbing one day per week, you can be pretty liberal with your choices of carb. Just bracket the ultra high GI carbs after your precarb-up workout. Drink plenty of good, no preservative, preferably dry-hopped beer on your carb up too. Great source of tiramine, b-vitamins, and relaxation.
I've switch my carb ups from 48hrs to 12-18hrs and have seen a bigger difference.
From what I've read your bf% will dictate how long and what kinds of foods your refeeds should be. 12-18hrs of basically whatever I want ( but not eating 10,000calories ) seems to work pretty well
ok just so i have it straight..... Monday thru Friday, no carbs, high protein and high fat. Friday after workout until midnight saturday, 2300 carbs or something, high protein, low low fat. correct? i will be downing lots of xtend and glutamine to keep muscle haha and i will be using leviathan reloaded, lean xtreme, eform, and possibly DCP. should be pretty sweet
but as long as I am eating enough fat and keeping carbs very low this should not be a problem correct? i thought you would want bcaa's for this diet to spare as much muscle as possible...?
I would supplement with Leucine as this is a ketogenic amino acid.
I was using 4-6 scoops of Xtend everyday and not hitting ketosis, so I think. I say I think because even now the keto strips change only ever so slightly, I can tell now because my mouth gets VERY dry and I can tell by the smell of my own breath ( wierd, I know )
I would pick up some ketostix and play around, thats basically how I found out what worked for me.
I also eliminated coffee from my diet as I cant drink it w/out atleast 1 cream and 1 pkt of splenda so that might have been the kicker since I eliminated both at the same time.
I've actually started to use the Xtend again but only 2 scoops mixed w/ 2 teaspoons of bulk during my WO
Log it bro and throw me the link, i'd love to follow along and offer advice as you can def follow along in my log to give me advise.
