Im doing my first KETO diet for cutting im 196 Pounds and 15%BF. Ive done loads of research and im happy with the mid week keto diet, its the carb up which is causing me a headache. From my calculations, over six meals I should be eating about 800g carbs which is working out around 150g per meal. This sounds an astronomical amount and unless I eat a bowl of pasta the size of my own body I cant work out how to physically get so many carbs into my system, without throwing up!
What would you advise?
Fruit seems to be a good way forward as the carb levels are all high but its all sugar and as I understand will only replace glycogen in my liver and not the muscles? Whats your take?
Thanks for the advice

[QUOTE=jaim91;407087441]Are you sure those are the calculations for a 1-day carb up vs. a 36 or 48 hour one?[/QUOTE
it said a 24-30 hour period so my calculation was 800 g carbs, I may have made a mis calc and simply split it between 6 meals as in a normal 24 hour period and not included the meal on the friday night which would make 7 meals.
still, thats about 100g carbs which seems an awful lot to find?

We're all different but this is the way I do mine. May not be "correct" but it works for me
Meal 1: Low fat protein + Dry carb
Meal 2: Low fat protein + Fruit
Meal 3: Low fat protein + Dry carb
Meal 4: Low fat protein + fruit
Meal 5: Low fat protein + Dry carb
I usually add 2-3 servings of skim milk this day and a desert as well.
On my non carb up days it's all about fattier but affordable sources of protein plus LOTS of green veggies. Carb up day it's things like egg whites, white meat poultry, and white flesh fish plus fruit and things like oatmeal and brown rice.
I don't count calories or anything like that. Just follow a basic layout.
Carb up is usually once a week, sometime once every ten days instead depending on how I feel.
