Keto Gains: Ketogenic Pre-workout And Intra-workout Supplementation

Keto Gains: Ketogenic Pre-workout and Intra-workout Supplementation (Breach & Clusterbomb) Many want to believe that ketogenic or very low carb diets are just like the latest fashion, here for the day, gone tomorrow. However, ketogenic diets are here to stay and have been studied as far back as the 1950s. Infamous bodybuilder legends such as “The Iron Guru,” Vince Gironda (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s trainer), routinely practiced very low carb diets with his athletes to build some of the most incredible natural physiques ever seen since the golden era of bodybuilding (the 1970s). No matter what your view is on carbohydrates when it comes to your diet, one thing that is certain is that carbohydrates are very efficient for increasing exercise performance and if they are consumed, are best used for such goals. Growing up in a world that’s been putting the emphasis on carbs since your childhood, can make getting a ketogenic or low carb diet to work for you difficult. The beauty of low carb dieting is that it is very effective for weight loss. It primes your body to burn its own fat, allowing you to get lean easier and reach single digit levels of body fat. However, building muscle Continue reading >>

    yes you read right..
    the bad stuff with a lot of net carbs and sugars.
    but let's start at the beginning..
    i am with atkins for 1.5 years now and lost 17 kg in a year, just to try lifetime atkins and going a bit too far with the daily calories and gain 10kg again in a few months..
    i am without flour, sugar and starches for a longer time (about 4 years now) and lost 40 kg altogether, needed atkins for the rest of it though.
    i'm at 86 kg right now, started with 120 kg 4 years ago and was down to 78 kg.
    so the time had come to start over again, but this time not with phase 1 and 20 net carbs, because i couldn't stay with that anyway, i was always starved out, headaches, no voice when speaking to other people, no power, exhausted and tired all the time. so this time it's the new 40 carbs max (20-25g carbs from vegetables and stuff and 17g of carbs from honey).
    then i read about loosing weight with honey and how honey would burn fat.
    well i guess you get a big "that won't work with atkins because of the sugars! it will block the ketose!".. but wait..
    here's the plan that has been worked out in a lot of studies, there are books about it, i just ordered them and will read more about that and try it out longer.
    but so far it works very good for me.
    plan is simple: 1 Tablespoon (21g) of pure organic non-produced and cold fabricated honey just before sleeping.
    the fructose will be stored in your liver over night, and that's where the magic happens.
    burning fat needs glucose to work, in other words ketose only works with carbs. not sugary carbs, but carbs, in the end all carbs are converted to glucose anyway, and where does fat burning happen ? in your liver, where too much fructose also gets converted to fat!
    the trick is to stay low carb all day, up to 20g carbs (not net carbs) and fuel your fat burning liver with fructose just before going to bed so it has enough fuel to really burn a lot of fat through the night, when about 70 % of the fat burning takes place.
    the glucose in honey is low glycemic (index of 20 on the blood sugar and insuline) so you don't need to be frightened, it won't stop your ketose, 21g of honey is 6.3g of low glycemic glucose, 8.4g of fructose that gets stored in your liver and converted to glucose to fuel ketose over night and not converted to fat (you would need full glycogen tanks in your body, thats about 70g of fructose and 130g of glucose, but with atkins, they are emptied) and 2.1g of polysaccharides (low glycemic glucose).
    your body burns about 4g of glucose per hour minimum (even if you're on low carb, it will build 4g of glucose from protein then), so with a total of 16.8g sugar your body will have empty glucose tanks in the morning and will have burned about 7.5g-9g of fat per hour also. that's about 66g of fat per 8 hour sleep, 462g of fat in a week just by sleeping with a tblsp of honey.
    without honey the ketose will not work that well, you will still burn fat, but not that amount because ketose needs glucose, and your body will need to get it from somewhere. you can drink a protein drink before bed, but converting protein to glucose will take time and it will spread all over your body and not specifically in your liver where the fuel is needed for ketose. so you will have less power for ketose and burn less fat than with honey.
    i tried this for a week now and works really good. i lost 2kg (a good 4 lbs) in just 3 days (i know a lot of it is water at the start), but so far it does not interfere with atkins and the low carb function of your body. you won't loose your atkins advantage.
    i'll look how this goes on and will read the books written on this topic my Mike McInnes in the next weeks, but honey at night won't make you crave for carbs while you're sleeping and it doesn't anyway because it's low glycemic and doesn't raise your blood sugars with a tblsp (21g), at least it doesn't for me and it's known not to.
    just make sure you stay away from produced honey, that's just glucose fructose syrup, nothing more, stripped of all vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, hormones, enzymes, and the molecule structure that makes it low glycemic.
    just wanted to share this with you.
    maybe someone here already has experience with all organic honey and atkins ?

    Honey is sugar...period
    If glucose is needed to burn fat, since all carbs are turned to glucose, it wouldn't matter whether it was honey or anything else...and the idea of low carb is that glycogen stores are used up forcing the body to turn to fat for fuel. Honey will replenish glycogen stores in the liver (and muscles if you have enough) and the body will turn to this first as a fuel source.
    It's unlikely to take you out of ketosis because you aren't having enough. One tbsp contains around 17g carbs. Added to 20g a day on Atkins takes you to mless than 40. Most people will stay in ketosis under 40.
    4lbs is not unusual in three days at the start, so basically what you are doing is staying below 40 carbs which will take you into ketosis, losing water at the beginning g which you do on Atkins anyway, But instead of spending your carbs on wholesome food which keeps you satisfied (which you ncoukdnt have been doing the first time round or you woukdnt have been hungry, - and the other symptoms you describe are classic salt depletion symptoms) you are choosing to spend half your daily carb intake on sugar.
    No, sorry, not convinced.

    Hi Ralph welcome to the forum and congratulations on your huge weight loss.
    I have to say though that my experience on phase 1 with 20 g carbs a day has not been exhausting. I do eat about 450 g of greens and atkins freindly veg a day though . and put salt in food as well.
    the honey thing sounds interesting though . keep us posted . It would be nice to have a tablespoon of honey at night though , especially on some greek yohgurt with nuts.
