    Yea. Like I did calc on both. I didn't undrstand why one used lbm and the other used full weights. Also the big difference in meals. One used primarily shakes, the other had real solid foods.

You are seeing the residuals from tour previous behavior. Results aren't immediate
    Thanks man, this is certainly some useful information. Sort of throws the idea of weighing in every few days out of the window in terms of measuring progress. I think ill give diet and training regimes a good 4-6 week run from now on before reassessing.

    I was looking for hard examples, i.e. post up both diets to compare.

    Needless to say I'm a fan of the Palumbo approach vs. CKD, not because of any difference in shakes, etc. but rather the idea of small carb meals around the workout - I guess you could call it a quasi-keto diet.

    idk bro. I've googled and googled and also checked out some other threads. i think I've grasped the diet good enough to try it.

    I've got everything dialed in between 46-69g pro a meal, 23g fat meal. 228-344g pro, 115g fat daily.

    for starters, I'm just gonna stick to his exact sample meals obvi with minor adj b/c weight difference. but i will be sure to come back to the thread when i have questions.

    now, in order to get into ketosis and stay, are you allowed sups pre and post or do away with them? also will chewing gum while at work stop or hinder the keto state?

    CY, Sodium is a needed nutrient, The body uses sodium to regulate blood pressure and blood volume. Sodium is also critical for the functioning of muscles and nerves. It only makes u hold water, loose the fat first, then if you are competing or whatever do you manipulate your sodium intake the last week or so. Sodium is not keeping u fat.

    jpowell, I did the palumbo diet, which is great, but i felt weak and hungry all the time, especially after drinking a whey shake. I felt the shakes caused an insulin spike which made me hungry, weak and tired. His ratio is basically 60 protein and 35 fat. I lost fat doing that but was very weak and felt like I was loosing muscle and fat. I changed the ratioo to about 65/30 fat to protein and it made a world of difference. I feel stronger, energy is great, not the peak and valley of a carb diet or palumbo. Oh and im loosing fat at 3100 to 3200 hundred calories a day. Now it took around 3 weeks for the body to chang over to burning fats for energy, but once it did I feel better than ever. Now on this diet, which is the Anabolic diet, you will eat 1 gram of fat per pound of body weight, then u will eat 1 gram of protein per lb of lbm. So you need to know your body fat, so that you can get your needed protein grams, for example if you weigh 200 lbs, and your body fat is 20%, then u would only need around 160 grams of protein and 200 grams of fat.

    GB, if I wanted to go from 192 at 12% to 200 @10%.
    what would my diet look like
    Currently I am in the slingshot training meathod by Ronnie
    I am in a two week deload low weight high reps.
    My caloric intake is low because my weights are low.
    When I go back to reload in another week
    I am going to have to increase caloric intake by 1500 I presume to gain muscle
    But I need to cut fat at the same time. I am taking GH as well 4.5iu a day. NO gear yet.
    Should help me eat a lot without gaining fat, but I still need to watch my diet.
    What should I do?

    joebailey--where is there info on the anabolic diet? id b interested in learning about this one as well. somebody else suggested to me to high my fats and proteins to help lose bf points. he suggested i ran around 300g pro, and 160-170 fats. very low carbs, in fact all low impact no direct sources. lol now I'm back indecisive and riding the fence on which way to go. i went and bought food for palumbo keto last nite, but not sure if its the way to go.

    well GB i posted in ur lean gain thread and had to erase it cuz i thought it was this thread so.. im going on a cruise april 29.. i wanna be as lean as possible by then.. have talkd it over with SteM and he directed me to jimmyinkedup's thread on carb cycling.. i looked it over and im ready to try a carb cycle if u think its my best route?? would like to try and hit single digit bf or get as close as possible.. i know weve talkd bout it before but i am serious now and want to have it fresh in my mind (if u dont mind )

    1. do u think id do good to have 2 high(200g) carb days, 2 zero(except green veg) carb days, 3 low(100g)carb days..?? if so what would be the best order or does it matter?

    i was thinking:

    mon: high(200g) chest
    tue: zero- back
    wed: zero- cardio only
    thu: high(200g) legs
    fri: low(100g) shoulders,arms
    sat: low(100g) cardio only
    sun: low(100g) off

    curious as to whether i should count broccoli and asparagus into macros as well?? want to start this thing on monday..

    also curious as to how to fit a cheat meal in here?? or if i should?? my cheat would be 2 whole chicken breasts(skin on..remove and dont eat the skin after cooked) grilled and baked sweet potato cut into fries...

    thx man

    attached is 2 current pics (and 1 original pic) so u can see where im at and be reminded of where i came from ..

    Jp, you can try the palumbo, but as i discovered unless you are taking chemicals i feel like you loose muscle. Also when you eat more protein than fat your body turns the protein into glucose defeating the purpose of a keto diet. The whole purpose of doing a keto diet is to make your body use fats as fuel instead of glucose. It will take 2 to 3 weeks for that to happen. Go to http://stronglifts.com/anabolic-diet...ic-diet-guide/ for more info. On the palumbo diet I was cutting fat, but also loosing strenght which made me realize i was probably loosing muscle. Also the palumbo diet was basically a low cal low carb diet. I cant live on a measly 2200 calories a day, I have a mans job working in the oil field. So i need my calories to stay strong. You can try both, I know, i bought all that protein powder too, have a box full of it. Im not even gonna use it right now, probably will after i get down to 10%. Started at 22% fat, down to 18% since the 2nd week of january, eating anywhere from 3100 to 3200 calories, no cardio yet, just seeing how it goes on the calories before i start the cardio, well actually when the weight loss slows.

    Honestly, unless you plan to step on stage, or are about to go on vacation and want to look really dry and cut, I wouldn't put much thought into it at all. Also, unless your bodyfat is very low ( <10%), I doubt you'd notice much of a difference in appearance anyway. You'd probably feel a little bloated at most if intake was relatively high.

    With your macros in check, you don't have to stick to his specific meals; an old member here followed his own diet and had great results.

    Ketosis - what supps? As for chewing gum - see, that's one reason I hated keto dieting!! Too many little things to remember, like gum. Sugarfree gum usually contains sugar alcohols, which to my knowledge is enough to knock one out of ketosis if enough is consumed - which varies per individual of course.

    Personally I'd focus on one or the other... I'd reduce bodyfat further and then change up the diet to gear it more towards adding lean mass. Yes a recomp is doable, but it's not efficient for everybody, me being one of them. I spent the better part of 2 years trying to drop fat and add muscle at the same time with less than desirable results. When I focuses on cutting alone, I managed to get to roughly ~9% in 3 months with no obvious loss in LBM, and an increase on most lifts. I wish I had done it a lot sooner.

    Bro, please do me a favor - start a new thread, copy this post in it, then edit this post to link me to your new thread. I don't want this thread to get cluttered with personal consultation on people's diets. Thanks man, I'd appreciate it.

    Still fairly new to the whole lifting thing. I've read through a lot of the threads and know that diet is the biggest key to gaining size. I'm still in high school and just looking for all the help I can get. Figured this would be the place for some good advice on what I should be mainly eating to bulk

    Welcome to the board. The short answer to your question - more calories than you burn. Read the post that I opened this thread with and you'll understand why my answer isn't detailed. There is a TON of info in this section to answer your question, I don't think it needs to be addressed here.

    Try the search function, read the sticky's, and check out members logs to get a feel for how they're eating.

    Ok thanks bro. Yea I noticed the sugar free gum I chew does contain sugar alcohol. My supps that I wod use are evp and cell kem by evogen. I also I bought the wrong protein the other nite. I didn't notice that muscle techs whether contains 9g of carbs per serving. While every1 else contain between 2-3g. So ill return n get a different brand. But I think I'm just gonna wing it. Meaning no plaumbo or exact keto. But will try a high fat high protein diet to switch to using fat as fuel instead of carbs. Same prinicple just winging it lol. Thanks agn bro.

    I ask this in my log, but thought I would ask it here too.

    This morning I got to thinking about this cut I'll start in 3 weeks from Monday. I'm curious....could a person carb cycle an "IF" diet? Would there be any reason not to?

Meaning no plaumbo or exact keto. But will try a high fat high protein diet to switch to using fat as fuel instead of carbs. Same prinicple just winging it lol. Thanks agn bro.
    Np bro, good luck and keep me posted.

    Very interesting!! I haven't thought about it before, but they could work very together. The way they work is similar, albeit different timings, but synergistically they might be potent. As long as you're hitting your macros, you should be ok. My only initial concern would be the high carb day/days - you'll be cramming an extraordinary amount of carbs in a really short time which could lead to fat gain and be completely counter productive.

    If you write up a proposed plan and want me to look it over, lemme know.

    I'll try to work a bit on it this weekend. I'm running IF now and already taking in 300g of carbs and a total of 3000+calories on lift days and haven't notice any fat gain. Actually I'm running less carbs and less calories on non lift days, so I guess in a sense this is what I'm already doing. Just gotta adjust it a bit.

    I think I have a pretty good understanding of IF, and I know the basics of Carb Cycling, but I need to learn a bit more. I'll do some research this weekend and put something together and see what you think.

    Any good links on here that somebody can post regarding carb cycling?

    I carb cycled 3 moderate days, 3 zero carb days (fibrous veggies only), and 1 high carb day. My moderate days had workouts geared towards growth/maintaining, while my zero carb days were all depletion oriented. My high carb day was my rest/off day.

    There are many ways to carb cycle, but I see too many people setting up schedules with no rhyme or reason, like - GB, what do you think of:

    Monday - High
    Tues - Mod
    Wed - Low
    Thurs - High
    Fri - Low.... etc etc etc

    when I ask why it's set up that way, they don't even know, nor do the workouts make sense with the set up.

    I'll keep that in mind...I don't want to be shunned by the diet guru!!!

    So In your opinion, what should the macro split look like on Low, medium, and high carb days? And should your total calories stay the same each day, just adjusting the macros?

    What are your thoughts on carb type PWO? I've seen guys say simple rather than complex so they digest faster. Any suggestions???

    Complex. I don't know of any guys on here that still use simple carbs PWO unless they're bulking...even then most still prefer complex.

    i hope that wasnt directed at me

    with mine ive kept the same amt of weekly carbs (700g) with the exception of maybe eating a few more veggies on zero carb days.. and figd since weekly carbs were the same i could do 2 days at 200g and 3 days at 100g and 2 days at 0g(except veggie carbs and maybe cottage cheese) still waitin on that.. focus high carb days on 2 heaviest lift days (legs and chest).. so i do have a reason for what i picked

    On a strict cut, I stick with all complex. Otherwise the only simple carbs I add are a bit of fruit. I still have complex along with it however.

    Not at all bro. If my example bore any resemblance to your carb cycle, it was sheer coincidence. The example of days/carbs was arbitrary, was more about getting that point across.
