    what happens if you eat alot of carbs and fat after stric keto diet






    Hello there.

    I am female 5ft 2 and weigh 117lb.

    I have been on strict Atkins diet for 3 weeks and lost 8lb. I have also put on lean muscle. I put on muscle very quickly. I am not trying to lose weight it's just coming off. I am trying to stay the same weight and lose a bit of fat.

    I bought some Indian Sweets yesterday. They are heavy and contain butter, gram flour, sugar, nuts, dates and so on.

    I ate maybe 350 grams of sweets today after not eating carbohydrates for 3 weeks except berries- I don't feel hungry again a few hours after eating them. I am finding myself mentally alert can breath better and on the ball again with lots of energy. It feels like my body was starved of glucose and that it has been "sucked" into my body like a vaccuum.

    If you have very low glycogen levels in your body on a Keto diet what happens when you suddenly eat heavy sweets/cakes?

    Do you put on fat in the same way you would if you are on a normal diet or does something different happen because your body is used to burning keytones?

    Can I switch between carbohydrates and keto and still burn fat?

    I know that while on a carb cycling diet, a period of about 4 days of low carbs is used to deplete glycogen in the muscles followed by about 2 days of high carbs. Because your muscles are so glycogen depleted after the 4 days, your bodies first priority is to use all those carbs to restore gycogen levels. It's been suggested that regardless the type of carbs, they are not only not stored as fat, but the body itself continues to burn it's fat stores for energy while using the carbs from the high carb days to restore glycogen.
    However, this is for a cyclical diet. I don't know if this is still the case when on low carbs for such an extended peiod of time with no break.

    How do you know you gained muscle? How did you measure this?

    You generally feel great. Some people start craving them more. I know I do. You will usually gain water weight as carbs will make you hold in more water. Read this: http://www.ironmagazineforums.com/di...ds-leptin.html

    Thanks for the article. It says don't eat fat so I'm not doing it right but will see what happens anyway. I ate a couple more and decided to put the rest of them in the freezer so I am back to low carb.

    I can see the muscle gains and am using heavier weights for some excercises than when I started. I am only eating 1400 calories ( because that's all I can manage on low carb) but I'm eating alot of protein. I also eat nuts to get enough fat. I find the more fat I eat the more I lose weight. If I try to go low on the fat I burn muscle.

    The basis of Atkins is fast "weight loss" initially - and because you're not eating carbs, you're dumping water weight - because carbs require water to hold them (this is how you 'fill out' when you carb load, and look 'flat' when you dump water. So that will explain the weight loss. This also doesnt' necessarily mean anything in terms of "building muscle". For your height and weight, 1400 cals is not really what I"d call restrictive. It would be interesting to see what macronutrient ratio you're working with - i.e % protein, fat and carbs. Note that most nuts have about 6g of carbs per 1 oz of nuts, so if you're eating lots of nuts, you're getting some carbs. I'd also say if you're getting enough cals in general you're getting fuel for lifting. Further, if you've only started lifting consistently ,recently, you should see some progress, almost regardless of your diet. If you drop the fats, are you replacing the cals w/ more protein? If you're dropping the fats and not replacing the cals, you're probably dropping your total cals too low to really function efficinetly and then I would expect to see some catabolism.

    I was told by a nutritionist once (the son of Udo Eranimus, the udo oil guy), that when your on a carb depleted diet for a while then suddenly binge on carbs, you run the risk of expanding and possibly tearing your heart, being that it's a muscle. I don't know how true this is as people carb load on keto diets all the time.

    Damn, I never heard that.... altho for carb loads I'd recommend clean carbs instead of shitloading w/ lots of sugar, heavy fat, etc.

    If you are in a caloric deficit, you will drop fat regardless of the mix of protein, carb and fat. Just the way it is. Your scale will say you've gained though, you'll be holding glycogen and glycogen holds water.

    I guarantee you this was not muscle gain. Not in a deficit. Not in three weeks while you lost 8 pounds (four of which were water, but still...) the strength gains you enjoyed are neural - you can get stronger without gaining muscle. Happens when you switch to lower rep range work, too.
    I am only eating 1400 calories ( because that's all I can manage on low carb) but I'm eating alot of protein. I also eat nuts to get enough fat. I find the more fat I eat the more I lose weight. If I try to go low on the fat I burn muscle.

    I'm not a fan of Udo's oil anyway. I'll stick to fish oil and walnuts (not together!) thanks.

I drank alot of water yesterday and it did make me expand but I can see I have lost fat - the skin has tightened up and alot of ugly cellulite is gone.
    My stomach went flat because I didn't have too much fat on it to start with. You can tell when you have lost fat as it changes the shape of your body. When you lose water, you look the same but smaller.

    I am eating 40 grams carbs, 90 grams protein, 110+ grams of fat.
    I eat 25 grams basic then add some other bits to increase it to 40 grams e.g. a few berries/tomato purree/snowpeas/ground almonds. I was losing weight too quickly.... The nuts are brazil nuts and the packet says 3.1 grams carbs per 100 grams.

    I expect eating those fatty sweets makes you fat but just wanted to check that if you haven't been eating carbs and your body is burning fat for energy perhaps you don't get fat - if you do it for a short period.

    You can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time - this is most possible for beginners because they are probably operating at not great muscle content anyway - i.e. doing anything relative to nothing would produce some muscle increase.

    RE: fat loss - I don't want to burst your bubble, but again, on an atkins diet, you're cutting out carbs, and since carbs require water to hold them, no carbs means you are going to drop the water. Thus the dramatic weight loss on the scale when you start an atkins diet. It is water weight. The number I've seen most often called out for literal fat loss in terms of weight is about 1/2 lb / week. And yes, dropping water will make skin tighter and all the other things you're seeing. In fact what you would see when you're getting some serious fat loss going is more likely a "deflated" look around the mid-section - that is showing you that you've lost some fat there but the skin hasn't caught up yet. W/ continued dieting, the fat pockets in the skin and your skin's elasticity will catch up and start to tighten.

    The best way to determine "fat loss" is either by how your clothes fit or by getting your bodyfat measured - either by 7-9 point skin fold measured via calipers (doesnt' really provide an accurate absolute bodyfat measure, but gives a decent tracking of relative changes from measure time to measure time - e.g. every 3 days) or via hydrostatic test.

    I have only been on BBing forums for a couple of years, but the ability of some people to ask for advice, and then not only completely ignore it, but actually ARGUE with it still astounds me.

    You are one amazing chick.

    P.S. Built and Sassy are easily the most knowledgeable women on this board in regards to weight loss/Training, and quite possibly among the the most knowledgeable women in the world in these regards. I admire how you do not let this slow you down when it comes to contradicting them.

    There is lots of good advice and I am grateful for the support.

    I didn't expect someone to tell me straight out everything I said is not true.

    Built is very feisty

    I am saying to myself how, why, what does that do about everything not really arguing.

    And I love Sassy's advice so I don't know what you are seeing.

    I am pleased to learn that alot of the weight loss it is water and will come back on again when I eat carbs.

    1.5lb is a fair amount of fat - (part of me thinks I have lost more). Sometimes I just look in the mirror and can't believe it. Some of the things that Sassy is saying are happening - I have lost 4 inches off my waist and my hip bones starting to stick out. I usually wear size 6 tops and this is why I am worried about it.

    I haven't trained my abs properly so there is nothing there. I have strong sides from general training but nothing at the front.


    I am trying to eat and drink more and hopefully I won't lose much more weight.

    Nothing wrong with dropping water weight - carbs tend to make a body look smooth and a bit bloated. Drop the carbs and you drop the bloat, glycogen, the water bound up with glycogen, and a lot of inflammation (insulin promotes inflammation). There is no doubt you look and feel better.

    "Built is very feisty" LMAO I love this!

    Does it matter when you eat carbs? I might eat them once a week over a few hours and then go back to low carb for the rest of the week.
    Should I eat them after training?

    Having done Category 1 PSMF for 24 days before going on vacation and then following up with basic eating of carbs and not really caring about what I ate-although I did eat pretty cleanly, I can tell that I filled out well-swelled up nicely, added 8 lbs within a week and smoothed out a bit. I'm not concerned, only because it felt great, and I know I will lose it within a week or two, and lastly it's just water with maybe a pound or two of fat.

    I went training today and discovered have lost weight. It's only 1lb but my backside is sagging I weigh 8 stone 4lb. Also I ate around 2000 calories the past couple of days and have been drinking alot of water. I think am retaining muscle but I look thinner so I can't tell. I'm not putting on more as I was in the beginning.

    I ate roast chicken breast with skin, 50 grams brazil nuts and salad, 4 teaspoons of omega 3:6:9, vitamin c, antioxidants, vitamin pill immediately before training.

    My legs turned to jelly and trembled even sitting down resting. I was there for 90 minutes with long rests in between excercises. I thought if I eat before I am going to have energy but the opposite happened. I managed heavier weight with biceps but had difficulty with other excercises doing same weight. I managed to do 10-15 squats per set but normally I can do 30.

    What causes the jelliness and trembling - is it safe to eat before training?
    Does lack of certain nutrients cause this?

    Hey, props on the pound down!

    Now, the 3-6-9 I'd ditch and replace it with just omega-3 (ie fish oil). The others are a waste, since they are both plentiful in your diet already.

    Why do you usually do 30 rep squats?

    I bought the 3:6:9 a long time ago and just want to use it up. I won't get it again and will stick with fish oil.

    It contains extra virgin olive oil, linseed, evening primrose and sesame. 2 tablespoons contains 5.5 grams omega 3. So I can put it on my salad and not overdose on it.

    I practiced on the leg press first and went to 146kg but then back down to 124kg. I found doing leg press helps me to do squats. I just picked up the bar and did 30 reps .

    But one time I collapsed after 2 reps when I put 10kg on the bar . I curled over backwards in slow motion I got stuck and someone needed to help me up. .

    I have only been doing squats for 3 sessions. But I trained heavily 18 years ago so it's not completely new.

    I don't mind breaking this diet sometimes to get more energy for training but don't know when and what to eat to get that extra energy. If I eat carbs in the middle of a session doesn't make me feel better.

    I am hoping if I just keep doing as many as I can without the weight then eventually I might find it easier to start putting the weight on. I don't know what else to do.
    It's also heavy on the shoulders.

    I stopped doing leg press for now. I thought if I tire myself out with leg press then I might not be able to do the squats.

    Why 30 reps for squats?

    It doesn't feel like anything for the first 18 reps and only works my legs hard enough for the next 12 and I can't do more than 2 reps with 10kg without collapsing. I thought I would be able to do 10kg for 8-10 reps.

    If it doesn't feel like anything for 18 reps, don't you think it's time to increase your weight? I don't go over 12 reps for squats. (Usually I don't go over 5 reps for squats!)

    I have a problem that although I can do 30 reps with the bar. If I put on more weight I can only do 2 reps and then my legs give way. I have the same with some other excercises, I can do a certain weight for 8-10 reps but can't do one rep with a higher weight on it.

    How much is the bar, and how much do you add?
