someone explaine keto for me?
so would this mean timed carbs or carb cycling is probably a better route?Dtlv74 said:The only problem with that write up (and some other write ups on keto diets) is that keto diets aren't protein sparing in an excpetional way at all - in fact the opposite is shown in keto diets where a higher percentage of total weight loss comes from lean tissue than it does in calorie equivalent non-ketogenic diets.
This is due to the fact that the body does need to use some glucose, even if adapted to full efficiency burning ketones... and if diet is very low carb like keto, the place it get this from is muscle tissue via gluconeogenesis.
Yes definitely... CKD or TKD are both better than straight keto I think for anyone actively exercising or prioritising lean mass retention.matt1989 said:so would this mean timed carbs or carb cycling is probably a better route?
ive switched from keto to timed, so i just smash 60-100g of carbs post workout, have a carb load on my last day of training and low carbs on my rest day with no timed carbs due to no workout..
