Alright so I am trying to lose 70 pounds. Basically it's come down to the two aforementioned diets and I've done my research and this is what I have to say, however; I would enjoy some commentary and discussion before I decide. So anyways here it goes.
Pros: rapid fat loss
Cons: a myriad of health risks.
Non ketogenic low carb diet:
Pros: more stable fat loss
Cons: far less health risks.
Basically what I've gathered is it'll be difficult to continue my aerobic and anaerobic exercises on a ketosis diet, so not only will I feel sluggish and such but even if I stay away from saturated fats
and only have protein that protein getting burned with fat will put a dangerous amount of ketones in my body overall being detrimental to my overall Health and I won't see any significant gains in muscle anyways, but I get the rapid fat loss and possibly even some muscle loss.
Now with the low carb non ketogenic diet if I have those carbs and the protein ive gathered that if I do enough cardio for log enough I'll burn all of the available carbs and fats and eventually I'll start going into my fat reserves but I'll have to work out a lot harder and longer and I won't see as drastic results as I would with ketosis, and I'd still be able to do anaerobic resistance training.
Obviously I need to pay attention to what I eat, how much i chew etc (metabolism starts in your mouth) but in the long run would it be more beneficial to do the non low carb diet and continue my workout routine or do the ketosis and put off working out for awhile to be safe? Advice is greatly needed here. I can lose weight and I've done it before, but I'm trying to do it in a controlled healthy manner so I don't just eventually gain most of it back again (which is what happened last time I lost sixty pounds and my muscles atrophied bad) soo...
