I did the KETO diet starting January 1 and stopped about 5 months in once I finished my cut.
When I started working out with a trainer he really kicked my ass.
We get a ton more done in an hour than ever before and I have made amazing strength gains.
The thing about it is that when I started working out with him (on CKD) my blood sugar would drop like mad and I'd get very light headed and dizzy about 30 mintues in to the session.
Since May, I have been holding to a 40/40/20 and still, even though I eat plenty of slow digesting carbs pre workout, I still get light headed and dizzy after about 45 minutes or so.
So, what have I done? Gatorade.
Yup, I buy a bottle of orange gatorade and start sipping on it about 10 minutes before I lift.
No more light headed dizzy spells. I guess the fast sugars bridge the gap and elevate my blood sugar enough to keep me going..
Sounds crazy, but it helps.. I don't like the idea of the HFC in but for now it works.
So her comes my concern and question.
I am going to jump back in to KETO for a few months. Gonna go the TKD route.
So, do you guys think that Gatorade, along with my pre workout meal/shake will be a bad thing on TKD? Will it throw me over ketosis in a non recovering type of way?
I know some people can get back in to Ketosis an hour after a carb filled post w/o shake but others take 20 hours to get back in to ketosis..
I lift with him, M-W-F @ 8 am so I am a bit concerned.
I am going to try it out, but I thought I would get your input first.
