Re: Against the Current

I am not going to argue with Darryl again here but from the ADA "Carbohydrate recommendations for athletes range from 6 to 10g/kg (2.7
to 4.5 g/lb)" the article says body weight and not lean body mass so at 250lb that recommendation is 675g - 1125g. That is a precription for heart disease and diabetes. 675g of carbs from broccoli, not even discounting for fiber (most carb counters don't count fiber as most of it is not digested) is 21.3 lbs of broccoli, yes that is not a mistake 675g of carbs from broccoli is 21 lbs. If you would like to eat just white potatoes for carbs you would need 7lbs, daily!

That being said if your goal is to lose as much fat as possible as fast as possible, here is my recommendation.

(all links are blogs, cannot confirm they are 100% wfs)

The best part of about an intermittent fasted ketogenic diet is that you don't have to be hungry. The fasting takes a little getting used to but the 16 off 8 on version is quite easy using bulletproof coffee. In terms of food, keep your carbs < 50g, protein <130g (protein can cause blood sugar spikes which spikes insulin causing you to no longer be ketogenic), and a lot of fat to keep you satiated. As you acclimate your appetite will decrease markedly.
