Keto cheat meal guidelines

posted May 03, 2014 15:41:35 by Mark
Hey Bostin, loving the forum bro, my question is what are your guideliness regarding cheat meals on a keto diet, how much carbs etc, should it just be 1 meal or spread over a day, also cheat meal frequency as I've heard you don't require any cheat meals until you are under 15%bf, can you confirm or squash these rumors? I'm 211lbs and 16%bf looking to get below 10%
Thanks.

I usually go Very high carbs on "Cheatdays" If you are doing keto, instead of cheat, i would call them carbs days. Your primary goal is to carb up.. So you shouldn't eat much greasy food, since you wanna keep fast low/moderate on this day. My main carb source for the day is oatmeal with raisins. And then i will have some ice cream, cake, or other things that include fats and sugar... Keep in mind this is not to get in contest shape. Never been that low lol.. Bit it would be great to get boostins take on this, since there is a lot of different approaches

Bostin if you're cutting with keto, on training days would you recommend carbs pre and post w/o to help with training, or stick to strict low carb all day?

keto is 0 carbs so ur having no carbs at all.. carbs around workouts will take u out of keto

Bostin. Are you doing truly keto when you prep for a show? or only for the last few weeks. I'm dieting now and get around 12-15g carbs a day from the peanut butter i throw in my shakes. I know it's not zero carbs. But it's working.

U think that's better than just straight keto all the way thru?

Am i right Bostin if for pure fatloss/Muscle retention is best to go full keto for 7-14 days in a row, and then "reefed"?
And if you wanna grow into a show like you did for the contra costra, you need carbs in order to grow?
