Getting ripped on keto
« on: January 08, 2019, 03:29:23 PM »

Hi guys,

I'm starting this new individual thread to centralize the questions about keto & sports, which will surely emerge if ketoers become more and more numerous among us!

My first question would be: how to minimize muscle loss, and later maximize muscle gain on keto?

Theoretical studies, articles and specialized websites are very ambiguous about it: some say you should NOT ingest more than 35% protein (which should not be sufficient to maintain recent muscle gains) because this can kick you out of ketosis via gluconeogenesis; some say it's OK to do so and even recommend it; some others say you should try a targeted keto diet (with a great intake of highly digestible carbs around your training)...

So what do you guys think about it (I think Neo and Zipolite said they had built muscle on keto, right guys)?

Personally, I would just focus on fasting instead of keto. It gives you the deepest state of ketosis possible, it forces the keto flu out of you, there isn't as much of a limitation on protein and carbs when you refeed, and you can (I have) workout and gain muscle while fully fasted for days/weeks. Checkout the water fasting thread for more, I provided several links within. It isn't hard to start or perform at all, in fact it's actually quite nice.
Do your homework before attempting a prolonged fast. JS1991 Timeline - Peyronies Society Forums (updated)
