    What happens if you eat no carbs and workout?

    What happens if you follow a standard bodybuilding program, have 1g/lb bodyweight of protein daily, small amount of fat and NO carbs.

    Has anyone ever tried this or would know what would happen?

    Sounds like not enough calories. But if you jack up the fats you'll be just fine; heck, you might even be great!

    I dont believe in no carb diets... Youll feel tired and irritable all day long. Carbs are not unhealthy when incorporated in your diet correctly just like any other food group. Just eat good carbs (alot of whole wheat breads and rice, baked potatoes....etc,) and limit your carb intake before you go to bed and youll be fine and healthier for it.

    What I'm looking to do is lose body fat and build muscle.

    What about low calorie, low carb, moderate fat, high protein diet?
    Running off a TKD type of diet, so carbs before and after workout but not at any other time. Plenty of meals throughout the day to keep the metabolism going but also keeping a count on the calories to try and shed body fat?

    Well, InMyOpinion what your looking to do is very hard.

    In order to build muscle, it is usually good to be in a surplus of calories, not a deficit.

    My opinion would be to concentrate on losing fat first for a little bit, then bulk up. So the diet you have above would probably be good for cutting down, not necessarily building muscle.

    It doesn't look like you have much muscle to cut down to, so maybe after you concentrate on cutting some fat out of the way, you can concentrate on packing on some muscle then.
    C'mon son!

    Its easy dude... u need to plan out your meals. 6 meals a day (3 medium meals, 3 small meals) eat high protein low fat foods ( grilled chicken, turkey, tuna....etc). Eat small amounts of carbs at every meal with some veggies at every meal. Eat at least 1g of protein per your desired weight. This diet with 5-6 days of working out a week will both build muslce and get you cut if your strict with it. Every 7th day take a day off and eat whatever you want as long as you still get sufficient protein throughout your day. This is my diet and it works.

    also... eat nothing within 2 hrs of falling asleep. this will help you stay lean with all the calories you need to intake during the day to build muscle. Remember the more muscle that you have on your frame= the more calories and fat your body burns off naturally.

    I'm currently taking 20g of Slow Release Protein before I go to bed. Would you recommend keeping this on or eating nothing at all?

    As long as there is no fat, sugar, carbs or anything other than protein in it.... you should be fine.

    You should be taking fat with the protein to slow the digestion. You don't need carbs when you're asleep, and you're fine without them on a cut, but I'd take them on a bulk. They won't kill you and they won't instantly turn to fat at night.

    When you stop to think about it, allocating carbs immediately pre-bed would potentially help with muscle retention, regardless of caloric balance. Purposely omitting or avoiding carbs pre-bed is like telling someone to avoid carbs immediately before starting their 8-hour shift sitting at a desk.

    just go on a Cyclic keto diet.. u charge ur muscle with glucose once evry week, 60% fat 35% protein 5 % carbs the rest of the week, the meals are YUMMY , and its good.. ur workout will suffer a bit and u may feel dizzy but u get used to it and u will feel better, fact is most of ur body operates better on fat.. so when u are on keto, u are on fat metabolism , so when u are on caloric dificit on it, ur body takes all the rest calories from fat, making it protein sparing, which is aweasome.

    Glucose is the form of sugar that travels in your bloodstream to fuel the mitochondrial furnaces responsible for your brain power. Glucose is the only fuel normally used by brain cells. Because neurons cannot store glucose, they depend on the bloodstream to deliver a constant supply of this precious fuel.

    This blood sugar is obtained from carbohydrates: the starches and sugars you eat in the form of grains and legumes, fruits and vegetables. (The only animal foods containing a significant amount of carbohydrates are dairy products.)

    Too much sugar or refined carbohydrates at one time, however, can actually deprive your brain of glucose, depleting its energy supply and compromising your brain's power to concentrate, remember, and learn. Mental activity requires a lot of energy.

    Complex carbohydrates are like time-release capsules of sugar. Simple carbohydrates are more like an injection of sugar.

    Complex carbohydrates tend to be in natural foods – and have long chains of sugar molecules that the liver gradually breaks down into the shorter glucose molecules the brain uses for fuel. In natural foods, the cell walls are made of cellulose fiber that resists digestion, slowing the breakdown and the subsequent release of sugars into the bloodstream, kind of like the way a time-release capsule works.

    Simple carbohydrates are found in most processed or refined foods and some natural foods. These carbohydrates have short-chained sugar molecules and, because they break apart quickly, enter the bloodstream quickly. Sugary foods--including corn syrup, fruit juices, and honey--contain glucose that is absorbed directly through the stomach wall and rapidly released into the bloodstream, almost as quickly as if delivered by syringe.


    So bottom line, eat your carbs.

    could you not jus eat 6 meals a day (example= mon-fri) with little carbs like max 20g carbs per day to keep the metabolism from slowing and stopin the body goin into survival mode, and then on week ends charge the body with about 60-80g carbs per day as a cheat meal??


    Also if i were on a low carb diet and got to my desired bf% and wanted to start gaining more muscle would i do a gradual re-carb?
