I tried something similiar called the TNT diet and went out of my mind. I felt way different without carbs. Probably some sort of withdrawal. I would rather carb cycle than cut them completely but I am no expert like Trantham and I dont BB.


\/\/\/\/\/ I mean the beginner's diet. I bought the book, it was an interesting read about how saturated fat hasnt been proven to cause disease and such.

Only one plan on the TNT diet is a keto diet. The rest are carb cylcing.

Some people love keto diets and prefer fats for energy. Some hate it. Like David said, might not be the best for natural guys. It could burn off muscle.

If you have a history of obesity, your carbohydrate sensitivity is probably going to be way messed up. Significantly overweight people and those who have been tend to do better on ketogenic diets.

I've been on a keto diet for several months now, although I guess you could all it carb cycling to an extent since I'm refeeding twice a week now. My body loves fats. I could go from eating carbs normally for a week to completely dropping them to 0 grams and barely notice anything during the transition.

you are not hitting Ketosis then. It takes quite a while of zero carbs to hit ketosis.
