>>37894167 Because carbs >helps you poop and not just shart all over your toilet >basically gives amino acids (aka protein) piggyback rides to torn muscles to replenish both glycogen storage within your muscles and repair damaged muscle tissues (more like build more upon it)
Obtain understanding in high and low GI carbs and insulin sensitivity. I can only do so much leg work for you before I'm bored
>>37894260 Here's the kicker, the low carb group was eating 30% carbs. That's not even low enough to get you in ketosis. Your body probably has even lower levels of free-T. That's the reason why you shouldn't cut or bulk on keto. It's a meme diet that's only useful for absolutely fat fucks.
>>37894167 Because they keep you satiated and give you energy.
In b4 >Carbs don't make you satiated! This is what Americans actually believe. The low carb claim that fat and protein satiate you, while carbs don't sounds bizarre to an European. Like saying "Valium doesn't make you tired, coffee does."
>>37894338 Overdoing it isn't effective either. Lowering fat intake below 25-30% of daily intake will lower free-T as well and not eating enough protein will lower muscle protein synthesis. As everything in life, a good balance is key.
>>37894400 This. Everytime I eat a healthy source of complex carbs like oats or whole wheat bread I'm fucking stuffed. I think the myth stems from the fact that simple sugars don't keep you satiated at all and we all know murricans eat a shitton of table sugar, glucose and high fructose syrup bullshit.
>>37894401 What's a good macro balance for a skelly to get some weight? Currently I'm more or less at: Protons 133 g Carbs 421 g Fats 73 g daily Not sure if that's a healthy spread. Around ~2700 calories a day for now.
Just as there is a cyclical keto diet, there also exists a more generic and healthy diet for weight lifters. Its quite simply really. On the days that you exercise you eat slightly more carbs (to replenish your glycogen reserves). And on your rest days you focus more on proteins and fats (where the muscle synthesis occurs most)
no deficiencies anywhere, no cortisol response, your test doesnt drop.
>>37894499 You wont die, your body will just eat away at the fat first to produce ketones. And if there is no fat, it will eat away at the muscles. Assuming that you eat enough calories, this wont happen though.
Because starvation is basically similar in appearance. And all the while you are doing this, your test will be low.
>>37894525 no, low carb is not a meme diet. It works, but its part of cutting, you wont make much progress during it because it fucks with your test.
The best way to be low carb, or even keto is to also have a caloric deficit alongside it. That way your body will have no chance to build up (fat) reserves and will be constantly tapping into fat tissue to survive. It will be one step closer to seeing the results that you want...its faster.
>>37894551 I kinda dislike pasting this link over here, but this book has a lot of the methods and meta that has this method in it. Some of his claims are bullshit, but I googled the methods outside of him and they are solid.
>>37894555 >what is fiber >what is reading comprehension
What part of "giving a piggyback ride" do you not understand? It's crucial to consume high GI carbs AND amino acid supps eight after working out because high GI carbs facilitates improved transportation for amino acids THAT DOES BOT COME FROM CARBS.
>>37894544 >no, low carb is not a meme diet. It LITERALLY is. It was a fad diet in the 2000s, then died because people noticed it was shit. Then, it was revived for the 2010s autist fitness fad by fucking reddit. Nobody would eat keto today if it wasn't for the internet.
>>37894650 Oh... Oooohhhhh... well, no knowledge for me mang. Kinda sad they hide this kind of shit behind paywalls. What a sad world we live in. Thought such papers would be public by default for people to see.
but I gotta say, I am often not that very conscious, or extremely in detail about things and as usual there are many different opinions out there. Or perhaps research papers that you long have forgotten.
But my subtle, passive knowledge of this topic (alongside a rough comparison to the evidence to the contrary, also secondary sources like that testshock thing, too much tl;dr to possibly explain), tell me that the low carb thing really is bad for your muscles.
I too was on the keto diet and when I remember it back, I dont remember having the clear signs of high testosterone as I have today.
Eating enough carbs and doing some of the other things improved my test by a fuckton. I started growing more chest hair, and most notably...my smell changed. A lot. So the carb thing is probably the one thing that helped.
Now some of the sites may say that carbs are unhealthy, but they most likely meant to say that eating sugars is bad...well they are...I have been below 7 grams of sugar for 2 years now. I get my carbs from breads and other less evil sources of carbs...
>>37894696 Thanks for sharing anon, appreciated. I actually wrote >>37894457 Any advice? I managed to get my eating in order (used to munch 2 meals a day) and I'm trying to polish my dieting a bit. Doing a lot of cycling for now, starting the gym probably next month.
>>37894761 Ooh, for you I dont know exactly what the best approach may be. I came from a fatty background so to me only cutting, diets were my main focus.
To be honest I dont know if I know how to help you.
I think that a generic healthy diet would be good at the very least (the no soda's, no gmo's, no candies or other high sources of sugars + avoidance of too many other additives that may give you cancers)
But for bulking, coming from a skelly background it would be best to ask in other threads to get more specific advice. If you are a skelly, it would be a great starting position to gain muscle mass though, assuming that you partition your macro's well.
I would almost have to direct you to the sticky...kek.
>>37894583 Nah, 30% carbs isn't low enough to be considered keto but it's still way too low from a healthy nutrition point of view. Don't fall for the high protein meme. 1g and above per lb is literally a scheme by the supplement industry. 1.4-1.8g per kg of lean bodymass is enough to build muscle.
>>37894528 >Get the fuck outta here with that ncbi study, they also had skewed research on cholesterol vs dietary cholesterol Dietry cholesterol along with saturated and trans fats have been found to be the sole factors for increase in LDL cholesterol and decrease in HDL. >>37894555 >Oh god the epidemiology of that "study"... Why don't you guys just outright say you don't believe anything that disproves what you believe in. I'm still waiting for that one study that proves the dangerous bodily condition of ketosis actually improves the amount of free testosterone in your blood.
I'm not sure if it's mom mode but they talk about how you use your energy storage of sugars after 8 hours so I think if you're doing IF and eating carbs you should be okay, carbs are good for you but try and reduce them and add healthy fats
fitness is a lifestyle you should change things so fitness is manageable not a chore
>>37895138 I plan on getting supplements when I actually start hitting the gym. For now, no cash for sport clothes and membership. Haven't own a pair of sport shoes in almost 10 years. And getting myself to eat costs me a lot in comparison to what I used to pay for food.
I see where you are coming from, myself, I don't enjoy eating. Now it's "no pain no gain" for me. I stuff myself as much as I can and keep going at it.
>>37894631 Universities usually have subscriptions for major journals. If you don't have access to a Uni IP, sometimes public libraries might have a few of the big ones, too. They might be able to help you find a specific article even without being subscribed.
>eat low carb/high protein/high fat diet for 4 years >have always looked good, lean and muscular >never could get a full erection, extremely difficult to get it up before starting sex >after these years kinda accepted the fate of ED, even took viagra >decide ottermode was nice but I want to get bigger, so I start bulking to built mode >up the carbs >suddenly, dick is hard, so fucking hard >morning wood is back, dick is concrete when taking girls' clothes off >this has been going for 2 months now
Holy shit guys how could I be so blind? I'm so happy now After all these years just managing a simple erection and not going limp after fucking for 1 hour, now my dick is SO alive again that I'm having trouble holding back to not cum in 2 minutes, holy fuck
>>37895314 There is a whole body of studies in favor of lchf, pointing to a efficient way to lose weight, treat diabetes and even improving cvd risk factors. I'm not so sure about keto specifically, though it seems pretty safe. It's not just a fad, tons of medical professionals are turning to lchf/keto based on science and are actually seeing good results.
>>37895758 take zma before sleeping, it will help. Also take pills of carbinol 3 to surpress your estrogen, it MAY also help. Also eat 4 eggs a day, dat dietary cholesterol. Also dont run more than 40km a week, keep it at HIIT.
>>37895777 Keto does work, but it lowers test. Its good for weight loss and that potential cancer thing. But if you want to make some muscles. You either have to be on the specific cyclical keto diet (some carbs to load up), or just a nearly regular clean diet (carbs)
Carbs are good for you, all carbs are good for you. Once you start thinking in terms of "bad carbs", you already lost because you will consider switching out those carbs for fat/protein which will make you fat and give you diabetes.
Maybe someone here can tell me, I'm planning to reach my daily calories goal with this ratio: Protein: 43% Carbs: 32% Fats: 25% I've got this from a german bodybuilding board that recommends 4g per bodyweight of protein. I'm not sure if that's just brosience but they are huge and they should know what they are talking about right?
Just had some mashed pinto beans, tomato, and three flour tortillas and it rocked. Would have been a rare vegan meal for me but I added some bacon fat and sour cream to the beans for flavor and consistency.
