if u carb out once a week wont u go out of ketoeisos and just gain back the weight u lost and instead of carbing up cant u just take a supplement such as xenadrine for energy

answer is no.

simplest and quickest way for me to explain that answer is in ketosis you are near glycogen depleted. By carbing up, you refill glycogen stores. The reasoning for the weekly carb-up is because you need glycogen to fuel your workouts. For a bodybuilder, a carb-up on a ketosis type diet is a must.
