    Somthing I've learned though dieting.

    My first really low carb diet was a compleat victory.

    I started out around 18% body fat and was under 10% in 21 days.

    I lost lots of fat, fast and even with out much cardo.

    Also using a ECA stack.

    I've been using low carbs for dieting and ECA stacks when ever dieting now.

    What I've picked up (how my body reacts anyway).

    If i use low carbs for over 30 days, the fat loss pretty much stops after that. I'll loose massive fat for those 30 days, but then it tappers right off and never getting far below 9%.

    I'm not sure if this is because my body becomes more efficent and using the small amount of carbs I do injest. Anyone know?

    My plan for this diet is now.

    I just got done w/ the low carb part, I'm about 10% body fat.

    I'll raise my carb intake to 300 grams a day, consisting of only Rice, Oats, and Whole Grains. Combined with 300 grams of Protien and 40-60 grams of fat.

    I'll use this for 30 days, to get my body use to burning energy from carbs again. But will not retain much wieght at all because its still fairly low carbs, and only very good carbs.

    After those 30 days are up, I'll go try cutting out the oats/grains/rice and see what happens.

    Anyone else ever try this? or any thoughs? suggestions?

    your telling me you went from 18% bf to under 10% in 3 weeks? This is not possible, I don't think it's possible if you were on GH, slin, roids, eca, yohimbine, ALA, Clen , T3, DNP , you would of had to loose a tremendous amount of weight...and loosing more than 2lbs a week your going to loosing muscle. So you couldn't just be loosing fat.

    BTW- If I'm wrong, I'm calling the Guiness book of World Records. Ronnie Coleman would want you as his personal contest diet prep trainer.

    You definetely have the right idea. Insulin sensitivity is a huge concern when coming off a ketogenic or low carb diet. I always slowly incorporate cabrohydrates back in, usually in isocaloric ratios.

    when you hit you plateau..that is when you should maybe hit the cardio a little harder.

    19lbs in 21 days....you definelty lost some quality muscle mass there too along with some fat. Not really a good thing.

    Not according to him. I just ran the numbers and if he lost 19 lbs, then he weighed 214 at 18%. This means he had 38.5 lbs of bodyfat.

    He now is 195 at 10%. Which means he has 19.5 lbs of bodyfat.

    So, he lost exactly 19 lbs of fat and no muscle in a period of 21 days. Pretty impressive.

    Sorry but something isn't right here!

    that's what I'm saying, it isn't possible. 8% in 21 days, bro you sure this isnt a add for some MuscleTech product?
