I'm triyng a ketogenic type of diet, consisting of 20%-25% protein 65-70% Fat and the rest from Carbs(usally 30-50gr a day). My main concern is regarding the gains i've made in lean muscle mass. I'm trying to shred down a bit of fat(5,9, 180 pounds, 12-13% BF, aiming to get to 10%). I'm cylcing calories between off and in days and engaging in powerlifitng(wendler 5-3-1) and intermitent fasting. I'm reducing calories a bit, doing 3000 on training days and 2500 on off dys, plus one 24 hour fast a week, to create a caloric deficit weekly, get autophagy and no have to cut many calories every day.
The thing here is: with just 30-50gr of Carbs,150-160gr of protein, is not this protein beiing converted to glucose for brain energy? These means no protein for muscle repair?
My doubts aroused even more reading throught the 150gr of carbs a day from Paul Jaminet at PHD, specifically here, where He advocates that in the absense of dietary carbohydrate, more protein is needed to amper muscle, which can lead to amonia toxity at more than 150gr of protein day, so my dilema to not increase it further than that.
Also, i'm a bit concerned over physiological insulin resistance on ketosis.
Will i be best served with-isocalorically- the PFD therms(high fat, moderate protein, moderate carbs) or the ketogenic protocol, in the attempt to mantain muscle mass,loose a bit of fat and continously progress in the gym?
