Would Sustanon work with Atkins?
I'm looking to gain muscle but get lean as well. I've done a modified Atkins diet before, and it works really well for me. I eat less than 15 carbs per day, keep the fat low, and eat about 300-400 g of Protein per day. I also do at least 30 minutes of cardio with my heart rate down under 140bps (I'm 25, 6'5", 237). Now hear me out before you tell me that Sustanon is not for getting ripped. I'm doing the Sust every 4 days at 250mL each, for 15 shots (about 8 weeks), and starting Winstrol at week 6 eod. The reason I'm thinking about a diet like this is because I put on fat very easily, regardless of how much cardio I do, simply because carbs seem to make me hold more weight than fat, and I'm worried that carbs + Sust. will make me blow up. So, my question is, will Sustanon be effective in the absence of carbs? Or maybe instead of the diet I listed, would a carb-up day be beneficial. Thanks in advance fellas.

Well a high protein, low fat isn't an atkins diet. Are you going into ketosis like that? Sounds more like a standard diet although I would carb up after workouts especially if you are not going into ketosis. Either way regardless of the diet sus will help with protein synthesis and prevent catabolism from setting in.

I will, in fact, be going in to ketosis, so how often should I carb up?

I would carb up every 3rd day - the 5th meal - thats what I do. I am on 2380 cal about 8-12 carbs a day and around 65 carbs on carb up meal.
Or just carb with your post workout shake/meal.
