    when I went to cheat days, I would often clear 20k calories that day. Some of my cheats might be listed in this thread from a few years back. I just stocked up that week on everything I craved and cleared it all. When I was doing only one meal, it was "eat whatever I want for an hour". I would show up to restaurants with candy in my wife's purse. LOL
    That's crazy, how long do you think it took you to go back to keto after the cheat?

    Dunno....my body adapted to keto quite quickly. I still eat almost no carbs on a lot of days and I don't even notice in my energy levels.
    when I was sticking to that program I would cheat Saturday and hold water until usually Monday night, then get up that night 6 or 7 times to pee. LOL. Tuesday or Wednesday I was back down to my previous Saturday morning weight, then that next Saturday was down another 1-3lbs pretty consistently.

    The reality of it is you don't need to overly concern yourself with whether or not you are in ketosis or not, just stick to the diet and your body will adapt and body fat will fall off over time.

    I was at around 300g pro, 110ish fat, and my previous mentioned carb rules. If you are eating carb based foods, pull them out.
    how much do you weigh? Body fat?

    for the record I am typically around 400g protein now and around 150-180g fat. If I eat carbs, I eat them, but I don't track them per say. Just aware of what I eat.

    Those carbs are from cut beans and peanut butter.

    How many meals are you eating and how many are actual food vs shakes?
    How long have you been dieting? How have you been progressing?

    No shakes, 6 meals a day

    I've been dieting for a while 18 weeks was in comp prep but tore my quad 5 weeks out. So I dropped all carbs because I can't do cardio and I've only started to train scan in the last week.

    I'm thinking of adding in carbs pre and post

    I'd consider adding them intra....I get great leg workouts with around 30g added to around 15-20g aminos to drink while I lift. That way you also don't typically have excess to "store".

    I have been training for about 10 years and recently decided I wanted to turn towards a more athletic look and stop chasing the heavier weights and all the food. I've been on Dave's keto plan and have had good results.....it is not happening overnight but I am slowly changing.

    I have a female friend that wants to give this a try but I don't have any experience with female dieting and I have heard it is a completely different animal. Currently she is 31, 4'11 and 122lb.....she is an ex-cheerleader so she has a thicker/more muscular frame. My first impression is that her ideal weight would be about 105lb. She has the typical female issues with carrying her BF in her legs, back of arms and stomach. I modified the following diet split and wanted to hear the consensus. I recommended eating meal profile #1 for 1 day and then profile #2 for 2 days.....the rotate. We would emphasize low intensity cardio and introduce weight training for tone. How off am I?
    #1
    Meal 1 -6 egg whites
    Meal 2- 1 scoop of Isolyze
    Meal 3-4oz meat with 1 cup of green veggies
    Meal 4-4 oz meat with salad/vinegar/salt
    Meal 5-1 scoop of Isolyze

    #2
    Meal 1 -1 whole egg and 4 egg whites
    Meal 2- 1 scoop of Isolyze / 1tbsp Natural PB
    Meal 3-4oz lean meat with 1 oz of almonds
    Meal 4-4 oz meat / salad with 1tbsp olive oil and vinegar
    Meal 5-1 scoop of Isolyze /1tbsp Natural PB

    looks good how long has she been on it? can you send a pic to see what she looks like? sometimes we can make adjustments along the way.

    any cheat meals?
    cardio duration?


    thanks

    She will not start until this coming Sunday. Was planning on introducing the cheat meals 7 days out last meal of the day. Cardio is going to be 30-45 minutes with heart rate staying 130 or under.

    Help please!

    Hello Everyone I am big fan of Dave and the RX Muscle community.

    I have a question about the keto diet Dave recommends...

    I recently ended a pretty lean bulking face and started the Palumbo's keto diet last Monday at 252 pounds of body weight. I did the diet Dave gave away for 250 plus man with the whole six omega 3 eggs, etc... today is my seventh day no cheat meal yet and I've been training 5 times a week with 2 25 min. sessions of slow steady cardio (walking) twice a day...

    I weighted myself for the first time this morning and I was surprised to see that my weight went from 252 pounds last Sunday to 239 pounds this morning! that is a 13 pounds lost in 7 days I have never lost weight that fast while dieting... was that all water weight? or muscle I have lost... at 252 I was able to see my abs so I donīt think I was holding that much water... but who know probably I was...

    Any thoughts and/or recommendations from you experience will be much appreciated. Should I do a cheat meal?

    Thanks in advance!

    Rather than start a new thread I figured I'd bring oneverything back to life. I've been on a keto diet for almost 3 weeks and just starting to see some results. I use keto straps every morning and they consistently range from a small amount to very moderate. My macro's are 180 fats 120 protein and 25 carbs and my goals are reached consistently. What should I do or be taking to enhance the amount of ketone so I'm producing? Thanks in advance.
