Question Keto vs eating carbs when gaining muscle and about testosterone

So I've been reading that low carb diets lead to low testosterone and that carbs are also muscle sparing. If the keto community argues that ketones replace glucose from carbs for energy, does that mean that testosterone no longer drops and ketones are now muscle sparing? Which one is it?

Wink Weigh Chicken Raw?

Hi, So I am cooking chicken and weighed it in raw at 570grams which is like 20oz. I wanted to see how much it weighed after cooking it and the scale jumped to 370grams. :-| I've read your suppose to weigh it raw because the water evaporates but it still hurts to see it weigh so much less.

My goal is fat loss, and the information I’ve gotten is that it doesn’t matter what you eat, just be in a caloric deficit. Sometime I eat snacks that contains 100 calories but has 15g of Sugar or more. Is that a big deal?
