dont follow this it's stupid
vegetables > performance.
with no vegetables or carbs at all I'd hazard a guess it's only a matter of timee until things start breaking down :S
i went high fat, 0 carb.
Maybe... I don't know.
Benji, have you considered having the old diet but adding carbs in the form of veggies? + just cut out all the bad shit like bread etc... (assuming that's in your diet now)
some people who have more endomorphic tendencies do well with lower carbs. In my opinion, you will have the same steady blood sugar levels if you had a serving of veggies along with each meal as they spike insulin little to none.For the sake of your digestion, and your health i really suggest veggies. Get some fiber in you just for the sake of putting yourself at a lower risk status for complications down the rode. IF you are more endomorphic, a caveman diet will probly work. Fatty meat, veggies and fruit here and there. Worked for our ancestors so give it a shot. BUt right now you are missing out on some really good things for your body.
Uh oh....here we go again.
It won't be long on a diet like that and you'll start to notice focus and concentration problems. The brain is the only part of the body that cannot live on protein and fat. Medical research revealed that short-term memory loss was apparent when subjects consumed fewer than 100 complex carbs per day. Atkins recommends fewer than 30.
Go to a doctor for a health check and post here your colesterol levels etc.
Also how is your uhm... shitting going?
Doesn't the body make glucose out of protein for the brain?
Yeah thats what im going to do... I can't stay 0 carb because when I go away on trips for rugby I can't have my own special diet...I have to eat the foods we get served. Plus when I go out in general.
I actually did this diet in high school. Only for 2 weeks, so I never really felt the side effects of it, but I did lose 15 lbs.
Anyways, its true that carbs are very important for energy and providing glucose for the brain, but consuming excessive amounts of protein will cause anything that isn't actually being used for protein synthesis to be broken down and used as energy, or stored as more fat. Have you been losing weight? Also, how has your body composition changed?
I would definently advise against this diet, it's going to put a whole lot of stress on your kidneys trying to work with that much protein in your system, and you're much better off cutting out so much fat and balancing out your diet in a healthier way.
Ideally, the body wants to get glucose from carbs, because it has to do more work to make glucose from proteins. Under situations like this tho where carb intake is so restricted, the body will start using protein for both its normal uses, as well as energy needs. I still don't think it's a good way to go about it, tho.
My protein intake was the same as it was on a carb diet. But I would eat 3-4 steaks a day instead of having protein shakes to get to 200g...
I leaned out a bit... I went from 90kg to about 86kg.. mostly water and fat. I didn't lose muscle. Not when my calories are high and im eating so much meat.
0 carb diet is not a very good idea, especially if your into any kind of sport. This is coming from a future R.D
one poop every 3 days?
because when u just eat meat it pretty much all gets utilised by ur body. When I had to go it was perfect.
if thats what you want to believe mate :S I'd be worried myself.
I wouldn't think there would be a big difference between this zero-carb diet and a diet of meat and vegetables. Who knows though. If humans are omnivores then we should be eating animal foods and plant foods.
