Ketosis vs low carb
When it comes to retaining muscle(which we all want to do)
All things being equal (cardio and training)
Which seems to work best: Ketosis 5 days depleting 2 days
loading or Just lowering your carbs by 10-15%
Or can one combine the two
eg: diet for 2 months on low carbs then say 2 weeks out
from a contest , start depleting and loading?
I have heard alot of talk about coming in harder and fuller
when depleting your glycogen stores for 5 days , then load
up for 3-4 days or until contest day?
Any input or personal experience would be appreciated

you have to make sure that you do it 100% correct or you mit not be at your peak for the contest. it is different for everyone you have to just play around with it unill you get it right. I had a friend do it and he went 2wks of carb depleting then 5 days of no carbs then loaded them for 4 days I mean really loaded up.
It worked for him but mit not work for you
