    CKD with no upper body workouts?

    So, I've had major success on CKD in the past.I love the diet program. I'm not looking for pro and con about CKD, but I need to shred some fat, would love to do CKD, but my shoulder is going to be out of commission for a few months and I can only do selective core and lower body workouts. With that in mind, and that I cannot deplete the glycogen in my arms, chest, or back, do you think CKD would still be effective?

    The only study sofar on CKD showed that it was not effective.

    Cutting when you can't workout your upper body will likely lead to muscle loss. I would not recommend it.

    Interesting. I did CKD for my transformation. I gained muscle and lost fat over a 12 week period. All measured. Maybe I'm just genetically fit for it? Saw all my lifts go way up too...

    Could you give me a link to that study? I'd really be interested in seeing it. I had great results, so I'd be curious to see how their studies went.

    You lifted with progressive overload and you ate enough protein. It's unlikely your results had anything to do with CKD.

    Proper adaptation to keto takes a while, with CKD you're interrupting that adaptation every weekend.

    That being said, eating lower calories for 5 days and eating more on 2 days makes sense, however I'd recommend doing it without going very low carb.

    CKD study is mentioned here https://www.bodybuilding.com/content...questions.html
