I believe we need to tackle, once and for all, the roll gluconeogenesis has for those seeking to use keto diets as a means for fat loss, and it's implications on muscle catabolism due to low carbing.
We should compare CKD UD2 Carb Cycling etc etc to determine the best
option for fat loss and muscle sparing depending on bodytype (ecto,
endo, meso) etc.
I am writing an article for avantlabs.com, and am seeking everyones input on the above subject(s).
My view on the subject currenlty goes like this...
Today many people are seeking to lose weight by attempting to stop inslulin production. Many beleive are unaware that low and no carb (KETO) diets will not only lead to poor performance in the gym, but are extremely catabolic and will lead muscle catabolism (gluconeogenesis). Low carb diets will also leave muscles looking and feeling flat.
The article will present scientific evidence supporting the importance of regulating insulin production and timing carbohydrate intake to maximize lean muscle gains while dieting for fat loss.
All input is good input at this point.
