    Ketosis and Weight Lifting

    If I do a total ketogenic diet (under 30 grams of carbs, 100+ grams of fat and 100+ grams of protein) while simultaneously lifting weights(moderate, not to intense workouts) will I lose muscle? I hear conflitcing views everywhere. I hear that ketosis preserves muscle better than any other diet and then the same people say that carb-ups help rebuild muscle lost from ketosis. I'm a 22 year old male, 5'9" 200 lbs. I want to cut 15 pounds and i've tried everything imagineable. Could someone please clear things up for me. The only way i lost fat in the past was with low-carb diets but i never lifted while on them. I have been lifting for the last 2 years and over did it on the bulk-up phase. Any advice on lifting while in prolonged ketosis will be greatly appreciated. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

    if you wana go keto, theres an article on here about training while on it, basically what you do is this..

    just say your aiming to go keto mon-fri, and you carb up on sat and sunday.. you split a full body workout over monday and tuesday (after youve carbed up), and you do a full body workout on friday (before you carb up again) which would only be like 1 set of everything..

    you most likely will lose muscle, as its carbs that kinda help you keep your muscles hard.. and dont forget to take your multi-vitamins..
    For every $1 you donate to the "buy Lude more weight plates foundation", you will help add 1kg to my 1RM.

    Those numbers aren't the requirements for keto for everyone. Ketosis generally comes with 75% of fat coming from fat and 25% from protein. Most people hit ketosis with liver glycogen at about 50 mol/dm. Just eating 100g+ fat and 100g+ protein won't necessarily get you into ketosis.

    I hear conflitcing views everywhere. I hear that ketosis preserves muscle better than any other diet

    Apparently only up until around the 15% body fat margin.

    and then the same people say that carb-ups help rebuild muscle lost from ketosis.
    Yeah, most do notice this.

    You count calories, yeah?

    If not, do so.

    You don't have to go the ketosis route to drop fat.

    What are you asking? It's not clear.

    if you are worried about training on keto ... it might be a better bet to follow a TKD ...therefore you can still train fairly regularly but you miss the opportunity to carb binge though

    Well, with TKD's the loads are usually put either every 2nd, 3rd or 4th week, depending upon the individual, so you still get to binge eventually if you like.

    Targeted ketogenic diet.

    You basically stay in ketosis until the timings around your training.

    You can either take in carbs before and after training, or some chose just before training.

    Afterwards you get back into ketosis as quick as possible.

    Some do carb loading every two weeks, as opposed to every weekend on a CKD, or every three weeks, or every four weeks.
