the main problem with keto is your workouts will greatly suffer and the "adaptation" period can take a month or 2. I personally tried it and gave up after 2 weeks since I was feeling like shit and my blood pressure was through the roof.
>>35708251 if you wanna lower your testosterone go for it. Otherwise eat a balanced diet of protein, carbs and fat. Eat slow carbs, good fats, enough protein and get all your vitamins and minerals. Then you should be good.
fatties can lose weight without counting calories, so they think it is a good way to lose weight.
restrictive dieting is a shit, though
keto doesn't help with weight loss www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16403234
plus, at a low bodyfat, carbs are essential for maintaining hormone function... just as much as fats are, some people anecdotally report them as MORE important than fats www.anabolicmen.com/carbohydrates-testosterone/
>>35708251 I'm sure there are a hundred people with anecdotes they could tell you, so feel free to discard mine if you'd like.
A few years ago, when I first found /fit/, I was a long haul trucker desperate to not become one of the orbs of fat I often saw at truck stops. After some research and deliberation, I switched my diet over to keto. Seeing as I was in a semi truck with no access to a kitchen, I had a very restricted diet. Mainly processed meats, cheeses, Atkins bars, that kind of shit. I stuck with it as best I could, kept working out as I was able - trucks don't have a ton of space for weights, and I didn't have any racks it anything - and tallied up my results after about two months.
I had lost about 35 pounds and all my lifts had gone up. There was a very noticeable difference in my appearance. At the time, I had a morbidly obese gf who went on it as well. She went from over 300lb to about 210.
So no, it's not a meme. But it is different for different people. For example, I can really only do it when I'm eating mostly processed shit. She, on the other hand, has a much larger range of food she can eat. Also, I take about a week of headaches to go into keto, whereas she only takes about three days and doesn't even notice the headaches that cripple me.
So no, not a meme, but not great for everyone either.
>>35708510 >22% of men are bmi not obese, but are bodyfat obese
So, you're banking on me being in what is far and away the minority of the population? You should probably not gamble anytime soon.
Yes, it is a possibility, but I didn't fit into that particular category. Perhaps the reason keto keeps coming up isn't because a bunch of lazy fatasses cling to it so much as it is a bunch of retards shout it down.
Anyhow, for what it's worth OP, my gf has continued to lose weight since then, and I have kept the fat off as well. So it isn't necessarily a yoyo thing if you actually make a change after you hop off of it.
>>35709096 Yeah I've been trying keto but I don't think it's going to work, i've tried and failed keto several times I figured just adjusting my calories and doing that again would be the best since i lost 90 pounds.
I was just curious if Keto was better in any way but I hear a lot that the best diet is the one you can stick with.
