The Definitive Guide To The Ketogenic Diet

If you want to lose weight or build muscle faster and think the ketogenic diet might help, you want to read this article. How did a diet meant for treating epileptic seizures turn into a popular weight loss fad? That’s the story of the ketogenic diet, which was introduced in 1921 by an endocrinologist named Dr. Henry Geyelin. Geyelin, presenting at the annual meeting of the American Medical Association, explained that the ancient Greeks had discovered that fasting was an effective method of managing epileptic seizures. Hippocrates wrote about it and, like Geyelin, found that the seizures would return once eating resumed. Why? What was it about fasting that suppressed the seizures? Well, epileptic seizures are triggered by electrical abnormalities in the brain. The causes can vary, from genetics to brain injury, but more common is chronic inflammation throughout the body. Geyelin found that when people fast, two major changes occur in the blood: glucose levels fall and ketone levels rise. You’ve probably heard of glucose, also known as blood sugar, but not ketones, which are carbon-oxygen molecules produced by the liver that cells can use for energy instead of glucose.

    Cyclical Ketogenic Diet + Intermittent Fasting

    Hey everyone! I was wondering how I would go about implementing the CKD and IF. I kinda have an idea, but I'm not to sure. I plan on using a workout routine designed for CKD. In one of the Keto forums, there is a thread from Blindfaith titled, "Step By Step Keto Diet Plan." I will be using the workout from that thread most likely, if not, something fairly similar.
    I'm guessing I would need to follow some of the keto guidelines (i.e. 65% fat, 30% protein, 0-5% carbs, as well as carb refeeeding during the weekends) and some IF guidelines (i.e. 16/8, 10g bcaa pre-workout). Monday through thursday I would be doing IF, while implementing keto guidelines mentioned above to enter ketosis. Friday will be my depletion workout followed by a carb refeed. I understand that a carb refeed lasts anywhere from 24-36hrs, starting Friday evening and ending Saturday at midnight. Correct me if I'm wrong because I've been doing a lot of research lately and still trying to process it all so I can get the ball rolling finally. Anyways, fridays and saturdays would be used strictly for carb refeeding, which would mean that I have to ditch IF starting friday evening until saturday at midnight. I would begin IF again starting Sunday morning.
    What I need to know is if this would work out. Thoughts, input, and concerns are all welcome. Thank you in advance!

    Yes, it will work well. The reason IF works well with a ketogenic/sustained lipolytic nutritional pattern is that there is no significant amount of glycogen storage (except during recompensation periods) which acts as a buffer that interferes with sustained and adapted lipolysis. That's why IF combined with a carb-based cut often shows little advantage, due to the constant presence of glycogen, depending upon types and amounts of carbs consumed...

    If I'm understanding you correctly, your saying that IF + CKD work great together right? And IF complimented with a carb based diet has little advantage due to higher glycogen stores right?
