View Full Version : How does this cutting regime work?

This was the first time I'd ever heard of carb cycling. It scared me.........I was thinking 'what the hell is ketosis?!'. I still don't know what it is. I was wondering, if I follow this diet, will it work? How much different is it to say, any other carb cycling diet(eg Built's regime?).

Read Lyle McDonalds UD2.0 book. It will answer all and is a great diet and resource on this subject.

Bah! No, no. Read "The Ketogenic Diet" from the same guy. www.bodyrecomposition.com is where you can get the books.

UD2 is really for advanced users.

Ketosis occurs when the body lacks sufficient carbohydrates to fuel the brain. Ketone bodies are produced within the body with fat and protein and are used as brain fuel. There is a 24 hour period between carbohydrate shortage (the fuzzy brain period) and ketone production.

Right. I can't buy any books I'm afraid, I don't have any money, or any way of buying them as I'm 17.
