How Would Switching From A High Carb Diet To A Cyclic Ketogenic Affect One's Performance In Strongman And Powerlifting Competitions?

You will have upto couple of weeks of what they call as “keto flu”, meaning you will feel low energy as your body adapts to burning fat instead of glucose. Some common symptoms are fatigue, headache, mental fog. But not everyone feels these symptoms. It is quite possible you will sail along just fine. Besides, these symptoms could be remedied by drinking plenty of water, consuming more electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium) as you lose them during the initial stages of ketosis through urination, eating more fat, eating less protein.

    I started keto when I was 250, now a month later I am 258.
    I dont get it. I have been sticking to a very strict diet, literally, this is all I eat every day:
    2 burger patties made from ground beef 70% lean (fattiest i could find)
    2 eggs
    some cheese on top (each egg gets 2 slices of cheese, each slice is about 2 inch squares of cheddar cheese)
    1 avocado
    1 cup of broccoli
    Snacks: (1 of any of the following per day, not all snacks every day)
    4 strips of bacon.
    some pork rinds usually 1 serving (9 pieces) no carbs even in them.
    protein shake, 0 sugar 3 carb protien mix (1 cup) + about 3 tbsp heavy cream and a cup of almond milk comes out to be about 8 or 9 carbs
    At work i have 1 cup of coffee a day with some splenda in it, usually 3 packets and some coffeemate half and half. The rest of the day I drink water.
    So each day I am getting at least less than 20g carbs a day but no more than 50 for sure, defiantly less than 50. yet, this whole month ive been gaining weight, and I dont even work out so my muscles cant be growing on their own.
    wat is going on? :/

    Try dumping the protein powder and the splenda. If you don't work out, you don't need that much protein, and it might be that it gets converted to sugar, knocking you out of ketosis. Splenda also halts weight loss for most people (me included, it makes you overeat).
    Try to eat clean for a week - nothing your caveman ancestor granny wouldn't eat. Keep the bacon, beef, eggs, avocado, up the broccoli, keep the cream and almond milk. Include some fried chicken legs (place chicken into ovenproof tin, rub with olive oil, salt, pepper, some lemon juice, put it into the preheated oven at 180°C (~350F) for 20-30 minutes until sticking a fork in it does not produce red juice anymore).
    Do you drink any alcohol?

    I am going to have to disagree with some of the other people who answered this question. The fastest and best way to get into ketosis is to dramatically decrease your carbohydrate consumption to 20 net grams (total carbs minus carbs from fiber) or fewer per day. At the same time, keep your protein moderate (50–75 g if you’re female, and 100–125 if you’re a guy), and fat at a 1:2 or even higher ratio to protein. Doing this alone will usual ...

    Adapting to the ketogenic diet can feel like the flu. Tiredness, fatigue, stomach pains, and dizziness are common symptoms that the ketogenic diet beginner can experience, but these symptoms don’t come from a ketogenic virus or an infected mosketo (like “mosquito” — sorry, I couldn’t resist). In fact, the symptoms for keto flu are not even caused by ketosis, ketogenesis, or the flu at all. The keto flu is caused by the body’s response ...

    My throat started hurting a couple days ago. Until today, I considered a sore throat as a sign of success. I’ve gone through keto induction four times. Every single time I’ve gotten a rotten, awful sore throat. It’s pretty much like, “oh! my throat hurts! must be in ketosis!” Pee on a keto stick. Confirmed. But it still hurts like hell, and today I connected the dots and realized that it’s a symptom of a bigger keto problem. Searching ...

  • Ketosis Flu

    You’re tired and dizzy, you crave sugar, bread, pasta, and your mind wanders like crazy. You just started a ketogenic diet (or a Paleo or other low carb diet) and you’re suspicious if your new diet is making you feeling this crappy. Removing carbohydrates from your diet all of a sudden may well be the reason why you’re barely able to concentrate on this sentence! This can happen even on a Paleo diet if you remove too many carbs from your di ...
