    keto and cheat days?

    To start, I am not on a keto diet. Hell, I'm not really on any kind of diet (other then covering my protein needs).

    I've been considering keto because of the reviews I've read. Most people rave about the insane amount of energy they have, as well as great fat loss.

    I'm 15-16%bf now, on trt. Currently in a blast (5 th week).
    I'd love to be 10% Without losing strength. Keto seems like a pretty fair diet for this goal.

    So, regarding the title. . I love pizza. Probably more then I love lifting weights. I've cut it down to once every 2 weeks, sometimes once a week of I really get the craving. How would this affect the diet? I know it would throw the body out of ketosis, but I've also read that racing ketosis is not necessarily important?

    What do you guys think? Am I going to have to throw out the pizza Night?

    For me it throws me out of ketosis for 2-3 days it seems, but like you hard to resist.

    Cyclic ketogenic diets require a carb load day to reset. This is a perfect time to have pizza or other simple carbs. I always loved loading day. But then by 36 hours later I'm a slug. Then by 72 hours my energy levels are way up then load day hits and I have to start all over.

    So cyclic with a reset every 2 weeks would be ok? I've researched a little since posting, seems most don't like it every week. you spend more time racing ketosis then actually in ketosis.

    So every two weeks wouldn't hurt?

    I reset every week. Ketosis seems to stop being as effective the longer your in it. But if youre set on 2 weeks thats your choice. As long as the macros are right you should still be ok
