    Exactly. Cheat meals on keto are non-existent.

    It depends on how you look at it. If following an Adkins type keto diet, then yes, you want to stay in ketosis and you cannot cheat.

    But for weight trainers and other athletes it's beneficial to carb load 1-2 two days a week to refill muscle and liver glycogen stores. For 5 or 6 days a week you follow macros of 65% fats, 35% protein, and 5% carbs (no more then 30 grams of carbs a day). Then on the weekend you totally switch gears and go to a 65% carbs, 20% protein, 15% fats format. So it's not really cheating because you can't eat pizza and ice cream and expect it to work.

    Dan Duchaine's Body Opus Diet, Dr Mauro Di Pasquale's Anabolic Diet, and the popular Cyclical Ketogenic Diet are all based on this concept.

    If anyone is interested here is a link that explains the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet. https://www.ruled.me/cyclical-ketoge...-indepth-look/ . I have used this diet several times over the years and it works very well for cutting. I always did 6 days of keto, and carb load on Saturdays. And like Multi said during the week it is imperative you don't cheat and knock yourself out of ketosis.


    RIP Big Lou

    Thanks, JD. And I can't argue that cyclical keto may work great for some people. For me, I couldn't take the mental aspect or mood swings that comes when I went back into ketosis. About the only thing I could compare it to was being on the rag EVERY week. And add hormones into that equation and it REALLY added to the chaos.
