Title says it all - I have a history of gut issues (leaky gut, suspecting SIBO, bloating, etc) and found that a keto diet kept the bloating away and BM's regular. I'm currently doing Lyle Mcdonald's PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) where... (more)

I've been keto for past two weeks. Been under 50 g carbs everyday and taking in a lot of healthy fats. I feel great and have no carb cravings. A lot of keto diets recommend refeed once a week. curious how many of you that are keto do that... (more)

If you're not feeling it on your lifting (ie. not petering out/failing partway through), you don't need the carbs. Your current diet's providing all the glucose you need for your current demands. The carb re-feeds are really more necessary for... (more)

I have just restarted intermittent fasting after an extended break, however this time I have combined it with the anabolic diet purely for experimental reasons, in an attempt to turn my body into a 'fat-burning machine'. Despite the wellbeing... (more)

If you are trying to be anabolic, then staying in calorie restriction will defeat the purpose somewhat. As to carb refeeds, go with clean starchy sources. Fructose is labeled a carb, but is more of a hybrid as it is turned into a lipid (fat) by... (more)

Been low carb (appr. 25???75 g/day) for about a year. Saw great results in energy and fat loss the first month or so, then things kind of stalled. Then I came across the carb refeed idea which made perfect sense to me, so now I have started to try... (more)

So, looked into this a bit: no one really has a definitive Paleo meal plan for a 300g carb refeed, but here's some points I came across: -Most people aim for 300g of carbs over the course of the day, not over one meal. Should make it marginally... (more)

A carb refeed could very well help to reset your leptin levels and allow you to continue burning fat. This means a refeed, not a cheat day. Maybe 220g of carbs from sweet potatoes, rice, and some fruit. Don't go crazy with the fruit, you want to... (more)

I do a Leangains-esque paleo type affair; fasted heavy lifting 3x a week followed by a huge meal with plenty of carbs (often paleo but sometimes "cheat"...!), low cal/low carb/higher fat on off days. It's certainly getting me lean and strong, but... (more)

So, I'm playing around with the idea of trying leangains. 2 main problems to work out: 1) I cross fit 2-3 times a week, plus I usually throw in some weight lifting or dancing/biking/skiing/hiking on my off days. Usually this is 5-6 days/week of... (more)

Those are close my macros. Yes, it feels and looks crazy, but it really works. FWIW I didn't find any difference in fat loss rate between 20g and 80g of workout day fat consumption I'm in the last weeks of a LeanGains cut on paleo/primal - been... (more)

So here's one I haven't found any info on. I'm trying to come up with a carb refeed diet plan that agrees with me, for diet compliance purposes mostly, otherwise I'm likely to say screw this, I'm eating a pig! I was just thinking that if... (more)
