View Full Version : Cutting, please review

I'm on CKD but not on a weekly basis, every 2 weeks.

Diet is made up of sunflower seeds for snack, meat with 3 tablesppons of veg oil for breakfast, BLT for lunch, Dinner meat with oil, sunflower seeds for snack.

Calories are somewhere between 1500-2000 on average per day, 300-500 per meal, 3 meals a day, plus snacks.

When on the low carb diet, how can I avoid feeling drunk/tired all the time due to ketosis? Some days I have no energy, other days I'm fine, some days I feel drunk and sleepy, how long will this last or will it pass?

Also how can I quickly and properly get out of ketosis so I can lift again? Do I have to drink a gallon of dextrose?

Advice please?

Also, does Diet Coke bring me out of Ketosis? I notice when I drink diet coke I feel energized almost hyper even but thats not supposed to happen because it has no glucose in it?

You are probably feeling sluggish because you are just on the verge of ketosis. I would recommend either doing the ketoginic diet or not and quit teasing your body. Most people feel sluggish when first starting a ketogenic diet but this feeling will pass. After you get into ketosis stay there until it is time for a carb up.

The kick you feel from the diet coke is probably due from the caffeine content.

You can run a search on a CKD and pull up a lot of info regarding the basics of the diet.
