Who here is on or has experimented with Low-carb/high fat etc... diets?
"i'm experimenting right now-cyclical low carb..."
yes i am editing here at a later date to further clarify. I agree with those below who suggest the need for carbs- I am not experimenting with a ketogenic diet, but rather take in carbs periodicly to limit fat gain and fill glycogen supplies. I did achieve ketosis for a few days though during the first week and frankly, it sucked as i had little energy and was not exactly craving that next hunk o' meat.

Not the best way to go for health or if you want to be able to maintain your results over the years.
low carb diets only work while your still on them, once you go back to your normal eating habits, youll gain all the weight back. unless you compete, i think the best way to shed fat and stay lean long-term is cardiow/eca. IMO

Budiak- If you are looking to gain mass, eat plenty of carbs! You'll need them.

I've done a TKD.
You won't gain the fat back unless you eat too much when you come off the diet.
