TKD – Targeted Keto Diet (Keto with carbs)
With my workouts suffering from the lack of carbohydrates, today is day one of targeted carbs Keto
The theory seems sound, a small amount of high Gi carbohydrates (but not fruit) before and after weightlifting to fill the muscles with glycogen to help full the session. Fructose cannot be used as it fills the liver and not muscles with glycogen so will affect going back into Ketosis. As well as the right type of carbs, it is also important to get the right amount of carbs as too many again will affect Ketosis.
My initial plan is to use 35g of Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) 30 minutes pre workout with 20g of BCAA’s, this should hopefully shuttle the nutrients to my muscles nice and quickly, post workout will be 20g of WMS and 30g of a powdered protein – initially Soy because that’s what I have left. Main reasoning to use WMS is simply because it isn’t a sugar!
The rest of the day remains the same with the exclusion of chicken.
