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

Ketogenic Dieting: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Ketogenic diets are all the rage lately, but do they really work? Will it get you shredded, or will it leave you flat? We’ll look at the right way and the wrong way to diet and set the record straight! A nutritional trend that has persisted for several years, and has seen countless bodybuilders and hopeful dieters lose valuable muscle tissue and get weaker in the gym – all in an attempt to become leaner – is low, or zero, carbohydrate consumption. This is often referred to as a ketogenic diet, or just plain keto for short. The common thinking is that by lowering carbohydrates and increasing the fat to somewhere north of 70% that we are able more effectively control insulin to lower blood sugar levels and, by consequence, prevent body-fat storage. It has even been argued that by replacing carbohydrates with fats, and keeping protein consumption consistent (the so called ketogenic diet, during which the user is thought to become more efficient at mobilizing fats for energy while their insulin levels are down-regulated to further lessen fat storage), we can become leaner and more muscular. Though the “keto” diet may prove effective in the short term, sustaining this approach

The Ketogenic Diet And Bodybuilding
If you are, or are interested in becoming, a bodybuilder, then you may have seen resources suggesting that a ketogenic diet and bodybuilding can compliment each other really well. Whether your interest in bodybuilding is at a competitive level or you simply want to look ripped, a ketogenic diet can really help you achieve your goals by stripping off body fat while preserving lean muscle mass. There are few champion bodybuilders who don’t incorporate a low carb eating plan at some times, even if only just before a competition to really highlight their muscles. Why do some bodybuilders choose a Ketogenic Diet? So why are a ketogenic diet and bodybuilding such a good combination? Well, a ketogenic diet is one that is high in fat, with good protein levels, but very low in carbohydrate. The absence of carbs means that the body has to use fat stores as a source of fuel, in a reaction called ketosis. This means you lose body fat quickly while still being able to get the calories you need – a low calorie diet would make you lose fat too, but you risk losing muscle mass, which you definitely don’t want. Another benefit of the ketogenic diet in bodybuilding is that it has a strong diur
Many people with the terrible illness of diabetes do not realize how much they can benefit from following a bodybuilding lifestyle. In this article, I'll point out what the top benefits are for following a healthy bodybuilding lifestyle if you suffer from diabetes. What is Diabetes?

Insulin is a highly anabolic and powerful hormone produced by all human beings and is essential to a well-functioning individual. Although produced naturally by the human body, insulin is often administered exogenously to those suffering from diabetes. Some performance athletes also use it in an effort to grow lean tissue. However, off-label use can be potentially fatal; extreme caution is advised. Although all human beings naturally produce insu ...
Doctors believe that an increasing number of bodybuilders are putting themselves at risk by injecting themselves with insulin. The drug, normally given to diabetics to help control their blood sugar levels, is highly effective at helping bodybuilders boost their muscle mass. However, this comes at a price - careless use could cause a plummet in blood sugar levels which could leave the bodybuilder at risk of coma, or even death. Over the long term ...
Ketogenic dieting is more popular than ever these days, but unfortunately, that doesn't mean it's more understood than ever. In fact, given the many different names, styles, and goals that get associated with the term, the confusion seems to be growing! After researching ketogenic dieting for years and studying it firsthand in the lab, I believe it has a lot to offer to a wide range of people who want to burn fat, hold on to muscle, and live the ...
Bodybuilders generally concentrate on building large muscles groups. While this is great, strong ligaments, tendons, bones, and joints are just as important to avoid injuries. Damage to tendons and ligaments are a serious problem when they occur because healing is very slow and the reoccurrence of the same injury is much to common. The bodybuilder, as well as everyone else, must provide the body with the full compliment of essential nutrition. Th ...
by Mike Arnold Whenever the topic of insulin comes up, inevitably, someone will ask me which form of insulin is “best”. While generalities may be appreciated by the impatient, they do us no favors in this instance, as experience level, individual need, finances, duration of use, and goals all play a role in determining which form of insulin is ideal. In order to simplify things, we will break down insulin into 3 main categories—short-acting ...
