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.

    Hey sorry for the weird topic but its a serious question
    Has any guy had any issues on weak erections during low carb diet?
    * During my high fat diet (All organic/seasonal veggies & grass fed / organic / hormone free meats)
    180 g fat (40-60 g Sat / 10-15 g Poly / 105-130 g Mono)
    90 g carbs
    120 g protein
    * Now my diet is still high fat but a little higher in carbs (And erections are all back to normal like i'm 18 again)
    160 g fat (40 g Sat / 10-15 g Poly / 100-110 g Mono)
    130 g carbs
    130 g protein
    So if anyone has heard of anything, i looked online and have heard of some stuff about weak erections & high fat but all just anecdotal. Nothing else in life has changed - Exercise is still the same, 3 strength training sessions a week & 3 Randoms (swim/tennis etc)
    Oh and Blood pressures all normal too ... changes between sys 100-125 & dis 62-84 but i only have one kidney
    I do feel hornier and just generally more "interested" in sex on a "higher" carb diet (as in above 110 g a day) Im 27 years old.
    Its not a joke question but....Jokes are welcome
    Cheers Guys

    Cheers Guys Well I haven't ever had issues even while on Keto at 30g carbs a day however many men do report erection issues and sex drive problems while on low carb. You can search the forum here for threads and see what pops up! LOL! Couldn't help it.
