    100-150g, after a 4 week or so adaptation period won't be bad if you are training hard. You should get back in ketosis pretty fast. I'd give it a few weeks before doing this. It will slow the...

    It's always going to be a situation where you are "robbing Peter to pay Paul" when you are dieting. In order to raise fats to above 100g, carbs are going to have to come down. If carbs come down,...

    Shoot for 65-75% fat.

    Also, I think you need more saturated fat and more sodium. I'd go with 1 serving of almonds daily. I'd also stay away from chicken breast and tilapia.

    Try whole eggs,...

    I think it depends on your genetics. I have a very small frame for being 6'2. I'm under sized for sure. Gaining body weight over 205 doesn't increase my lifts much. A little bit, yes. But I get...
