    Oatmeal post worktout is not what you want. You want simple carbs (think dextrose) with whey protein. You want an immediate insulin spike post workout. Oatmeal will cause a smaller sustained insulin spike because the body must break down the complex carbohydrate chains.

    Immediately post workout IMO there are none. You want liquids. If you absolutley must have solid foods post workout (although I don't see why you would) you would want something with a very high GI.

    Hey Dilly......not disagreeing with you, but I am currently experimenting with using cooked oatmeal in my post workout shake

    My understanding is that the effect of exercise is such to create a significant nutrient partitioning stimulus such that the glucose will be targeted to muscles worked and fat will continue to be used for fuel even during the period of raised insulin.

    I am not noticing any negative effects from this and the rest of my day is normal keto (I train at 6:00am), plus I feel better without the large surge of plasma glucose that come from dex.

    I would not suggest this for the initial stage of keto, but after that I don't think it would be a problem.

    I'm trying a keto diet and I know I can't have fruits, milk or soda. But are these allowed on the carb up day.

    Help

    I am 6'6'' 312 lbs. I did atkins before and lost a bunch of weight and a bunch of muscle. I literaly became weaker the lighter i became. I want to try this but after hours of reading a few things are a little blury. This is what I have:

    1gm protien per pound of lean body mass
    50gm of carbs
    30/30 shake post workout w/ 10gm glutamine on cardio days
    need help with amount of fat

    also on carb loading days, how many carbs? Does protien and fat intake stay the same? Possibly ALA on carb days also.

    I would like to thank everyone in this forum for all of the great info. And thanks in advance for your help with this.

    Fruits only in very limited small amounts........A few diet soda's a week will not hutrt most IMO. Same most carbs except fiberous green ones for your carb-ups.

    Talking I think I have it!

    Ok here it is:

    15 cals per pound of actual body wt. - 500 cals=total cals

    1gm protien per lb of lean body wt. x4 = protien cals

    50 gm of carbs x4 = carb cals

    total cals - protien cals - carb cals = fat cals

    Fat cals/9 =fat gm

    30/30 post work out shake doesn't count toward totals

    On carb load says...protien stays the same

    fat gm should be cut down(0 or less than a gm per kg of lbm)

    carbs should be 10-12 gm per kg of lean body mass.

    could someone verify this or is the blurr just starting to make sense to me?

    Lightbulb one more thing

    Since your caloric intake is based on wt.
    as you lose you should adjust your fat cals to lower total cals.

    is this right?

    I hope this is right since it is really starting to make sense.

    Keto and Fiber Question

    While on the Keto Diet. When adding your vegetables to each meal. I am only 20 grams of carbs per day. Does fiber substract some of the carbs per serving say if fiber is 5 and carbs are 3 then the serving is only 2 carbs. I hope I did not complicate this.
    You are what you eat!

    i think i posted this in the wrong section before....

    what's going on?

    quick question before i try this out...thanks for the great posts, btw!

    i've always gone high protein and decent carbs in the beginning of the week, then less and less throughout the week, but keeping the protien...

    i noticed from the keto article that minimal to no carb is expected from sun - fri, then carb up from fri night - sat...
    from the keto diet plans i was reading, many are going up to 60 grams a day of carbs plus a cup of juice after workout...is this the correct method? it seems 50-60g a day plus juice after workout is a lot for each day (~80g), then you still have the carb-up on the weekend...or is 30-40 g plus juice post workout a day w/ carb up during the weekend more reasonable??

    thanks!

    It depends on the individual. I am using 50 gm of carb a day and have lost 7lbs in the first week. For some this may be too many carbs, while others may be able to do more. Start low and adjust up a little at a time. The post workout shake should be 30 gm protien and 30 gm dextrose. It should be absorbed by the muscles quickly and should not be counted towards your total count. Also don't forget the ever important fat gm. This is where i had always failed in the past.

    thanks for the tip. ive always been high protein, low carbs. but i want to try this plan out since it has had some good results. i plan on calculating it all out, carbs/protein/fat...

    i always have a high protein/low carb shake after i work out, but i've never had juice after my workout. since you said it doesn't count towards the daily intake numbers, then it makes more sense...i was curious how some people managed only 40 gr a day and they were drinking juice post workout...

    Be careful with Juice. Make sur it is 30 gm dextrose. Glucose, dextrose, etc. all produce different insulin responses.

    thanks again irongiant.

    i've never had any form of sugar after my workout. just a lil that comes from my protein shake.

    what's the best source you recommend then, orange juice? or do you buy the dextrose powder and mix it in?

    what % of protein/carbs/fat do you shoot for everyday? i need to get out of the low carb, low fat mindset to prepare for this...

    i got some replyes and it seems the diet above is not a good idea
    what do you guys think about this:

    protein shake

    cardio training

    egg ham olives

    pro shake half an avokado oliveoil shot

    samon olives

    pro shake rest of avokado oliveoil shot

    gym trianing

    big beef

    can of tuna oliveoil shot

    i dont know why but it feels really strange to eat bacon and cheese and stuff since i.ve always learned that its big no no, isnt it better to have a little more olive oil or something instead of all the "bad" fat in the diets???

    thanks again for any tips

    This is my first post! I have been reading these boards for a long time now but could never get round to posting anything myself.

    Anyway, I have 2 questions:

    In a 'raw and uncut' interview on bodybuilding.com with Craig Titus, he say's that he uses a ketogenic diet. He says that he uses high fat/high protein and carbs up every 3rd or 4th day as opposed to carbing up every 7th day. Why is that? Does it keep leptin levels high? Does it maintain muscle mass better? Why carb up so often?

    If carbing up every 3rd or 4th is better than carbing up every 7th day, I'll do it.

    I am around 4% bodyfat right now, so I am not fat, but I would like to tighten my glutes a little.

    My second question is just for reference purposes. How many calories are there in a tablespoon of oil?

    quick question.

    I've been on CKD for 2 weeks now. The first day i planned to start CKD i got sick (not from the CKD) so i didn't work out the entire 2 weeks. I planned to start my carb up today untill tomorrow 6 p.m. I am gonna do a full body workout today. The question is, should i carb up today or wait till next week?

    Do you need to take fat every meal to stay in a state of ketosis?

    If you take a meal with just proteins, is the body going to use the proteins for energy or bodyfat instead?

    thanks.

    It's a bit older but still a great refference IMO......

    "The NutriBase Guide to Carbohydrates, calories and fat in your" food"

    by Dr. Art Ulene.

    Any good book store should have this or many references like this one I use. I will get a new one someday that includes fiber content, as the one I have does not give that breakdown.

    Ok, started my keto today. I've got a couple of questions.

    Should I intake any carbs before cardio or weight training workout or leave all the carbs for post-workout drink?

    Is gatorade powder + Optimum's 100% whey good for post-workout shake?

    Thanks.
