FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

Alcohol On A Low Carb, Keto Diet!

For years, I’ve read countless dieting books that prohibited me from drinking alcohol. Actually, it’s probably the first thing that many “diet gurus” say to cut out of your diet and for (somewhat) good reason. Alcohol gets a bad reputation because it’s basically empty calories. In an ideal world, sure. I’ll give up alcohol to lose weight. But let’s get serious. I’m 23 years old and I very much enjoy a tasty alcoholic beverage (or 5) and a wild night out on the town with my friends. The beauty of a ketogenic, low carb diet is that you can still enjoy yourself from time-to-time with alcohol and still lose weight! However, there are some guidelines as to what alcohols you can enjoy and those you should avoid. Liquor On average, one shot is the equivalent to about 1.5oz and for these spirits have a nutritional value of 0 carbs and roughly 64 calories. Of course, this will vary depending on how much is actually in your beverage (order a double? Double the nutritional stats). Approved spirits on a keto, low carb diet include: Vodka (Three Olives, Absolut, Grey Goose, etc.) Rum (Captain Morgan, etc) Gin (Tanqueray, Beefeater, etc) Tequila Whiskey (Jack Daniel’s, etc.) Sc Continue reading >>

    I have noticed a few people (myself included) wondering how drinking Bacardi and Diet Pepsi (w/Splenda) would affect being in ketosis. Can anyone out there give me any information on this? I know alcohol is not permitted during induction, but bacardi and diet coke/pepsi is supposed to have 0 carbs. My question is...why wouldn't clear spirits be permitted if they don't have any carbs?

  2. readyfreddy

    A few thoughts:
    1 if you have your bacardi with a diet coke it will be 1 carb, not 0 as you count each diet coke (package of splenda etc) as 1 carb.
    There is no drinking on induction for a number of reasons:
    1. Your body burns alcohol for fuel first. So if you are in ketosis and burning fat (the goal) but you drink, you will stop burning fat until you have burned off all the alcohol.
    2. Alcohol messes with some people's blood sugar, leading to sugar/off plan food cravings after drinking.
    3. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions and makes you more likely to cheat.
    That said, I drink occasionally while on induction but make sure I count it in my carbs. (Ie 5 oz dry white wine = 3, vodka/bacardi silver with soda water = 0)
    You can try it out and see how it makes you feel!

  3. sandyfanny

    Although most alcohols (rum, vodka, gin, etc.) have 0 carbs, they are eventually metabolized as sugar...or at least that's the way I understand it. For most of us, they don't help us lose weight on Induction.

Try not to skip meals or stay 6 hours without eating. 2)Eat a mix of fat and protein as poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs and red meat, and normal fat as margarine, mayonnaise, olive oil, safflower, sunflower and other vegetable oils. 3)Eat close to 20 grams a day of starches, no less than 12 15 grams of which must come as serving of mixed greens and different vegetables from the acceptable foods. 4)Do not eat organic product, bread, pasta, grains, boring vegetables or dairy items other than cheddar, cream or margarine. Try not to eat nuts or seeds in the initial two weeks. Food that contain protein and starches, for example, chickpeas, kidney beans and different vegetables, are not allowed right now. On the off chance that you feel you must eat bread or some other grain item, just high fiber low-carb items with 3 grams of Net Carbs or less per serving are permitted, and you can eat stand out serving a day. Be mindful that even that sum may moderate or slow down your advancement, and if that happens, drop the item instantly. 5)Eat only food on the Acceptable Foods list. 6)Adjust the amount you eat.

Sauce is regularly made with flour or cornstarch, and sugar is in some cases a fixing in serving of mixed greens dressing. 9)Use sucralose or saccharin as a sweetener. Make sure to number every parcel of any of these as 1 gram of carbs, due to the fillers and building operators that are included. 10)Avoid a lot of espresso, tea and sodas that contain caffeine.

Atkins Diet & Alcohol

On the Atkins diet, you take in a limited amount of carbohydrates a day so you have to count them scrupulously to make sure you don’t exceed your daily quota. Although you’re allowed to drink some alcohol on both variations of this low-carb plan, doing so may hinder your weight-loss efforts. In addition, you need to count the carbs in your wine and cocktails as you would any other carbohydrate-containing food or beverage and figure them into your daily total. Ask your doctor about how alcohol fits into your diet, because it may interact with medications you are taking. Video of the Day Alcohol in the Atkins Diet Induction Phase The Atkins diet consists of two separate diet plans. Atkins 20, the classic Atkins diet, consists of four different phases. The first phase is known as "induction," and it’s the most stringent; on it you consume only 20 to 25 “net” carbs a day. That’s the number you get when you subtract the grams of fiber from the total grams of carbs in a food or beverage. During the induction phase of Atkins 20, which lasts for two weeks, your body goes into ketosis – a metabolic process in which you burn fat for fuel in the absence of carbs. The Atkins diet Continue reading >>

    This category is for discussing low carb options for Alcohol as well as science specific to alcohol metabolism by a fat adapted human.
    Good place to start. I'm on my phone else I'd elaborate more. My understanding is that zero carb alcoholic drinks are fine, if you're willing to put ketosis on pause while your body cleans out the alcohol from your blood.

    Like I said, that's my understanding.

  3. Minivanmachoman

    I used to do this and then moved to whiskey on the rocks, then to whiskey straight, then to no booze for various reasons since June 2016.
    Booze was a double edged sword for me. Good times, but I had a tendency to really eat a ton during and after. Diet cola also seems to produce an insulin response in me so I have been off that as well.
    Some people can have booze and be aok, others, like me, are hit or miss. Try it out and see what works for you! You probably already know this but take it slow on the booze, your tolerance will be way down.
    Good Luck!
    KCKO!

    Edit:grammar and spelling are hard.
