Can we have a legit, scientific discussion about keto diets? There are threads about it a couple times a week but they always get derailed by overzealous fanboys or both sides.
So we know that keto diets reduce your insulin, making you burn fat faster. Does this have any negative effect on building muscle mass? AFAIK many bodybuilders use insulin as part of their steroid cycle to help with building muscle, so its clearly not irrelevant. It seems every bodybuilder is either high carb and super low fat or high fat and super low carb.
So /fit/ do we eat bread?
Keto is for fat burning, not gains. That being said you can (and I do) experience decent noob gains. But this is for people who say, I don't want to be fat anymore and I'll worry about gains later.

But that's wrong you pseudo-intellectual retard. Why don't you refrain from posting when all your education on this topic stems from reddit teenagers and pop sci articles dumbed down to the point of incorrectness?
Search Dr. Perlmutter material, he's both a neurologist and a nutritionist.
Carbs fucks your brain, basically.
Running on permanent ketosis is the optimal state for the brain.
Ofc i'm only talking about brain - wich is my main concern as a lawyer, and the reason I eat no carbs during the week.
Carbs are fucking great before explosion exercises and a MUST if your dream is getting a body bigger than swimmer mode.
The brain can also run on glucose, but fat is its optimal fuel.
Glucose is like a super fast burning fuel. Imagine a gas that burns so fast it damages the engine, that's it. Less results in short time, damages and alzheimer on the long run.
Glucose being know as "brain fuel" is bullshit.
>being this dumb
Your food doesn't dump all it's glucose all at once, it releases it over time, eg; glycemic index. Eg: It doesn't burn that fast in a controlled release.
You're thinking about downing a whole bag of sugar.
Then do PSMF for a few weeks.
