Pulled 2x5x365 today, got some of the shittiest videos posted so far in this threak:
Back's lookin straight so I'm happy with that, and it doesn't hurt afterwards this time, either.
A guy on a Swedish lifting forum tried a lil experiment with his diet.
He's 5'8, 185 pounds, 12% bf. In great shape.
Very active lifestyle with weight training and up to 4 hours of mixed forms of cardio every day. He rides his bicycle whenever he has to go somewhere.
Around 5200-5500 calories
Every day to see what would happen with his weight, body composition and mood.
After two weeks, his weight is still at 185 pounds. His mood is more stable and feels happier. No problem training up to 7-8 hours a day.
So much for LCHF / keto for active people.
You mean that its a given, charly?
I mean, you hear a lot of information in media about how carbs are evil and there are still guys out there who do strict keto for cutting weight. I'm just saying that carbs in themselves will not make you fat. This guy was obviously on a calorie balance and is very active, which would explain why he didn't gain weight.
However, if you are on a calorie surplus and eat a lot of carbs, I think its safer to go low on the fat. Very high intakes of both on a surplus seems to be a cause for fat gain (high fat, high carb, low-moderate protein in a constant surplus is pretty much the typical fatty's diet).
