Hi, I am an athlete training for an event in a month, and I just started on the primal diet. I am not sure if I am in ketosis yet, since I didn't eat that many carbs before anyway (just overindulged in fat coupled with a bit of carbs, which stimulated my appetite) I practice on Saturday mornings for two hours of sprint training, so I need to carb load for that time. I also like to participate in boot camps after work on Mondays. If I do heavy lifting on Sunday, I should be able to high-carb it on Saturday/Sunday/Monday and high-fat on the other days. However, should I restrict the carbs to just Sat/Sun? Do i need to carb in on Friday night as well since I practice on Sat mornings? On the other days, I am planning on only doing high-intensity for short periods, and/or cardio/high rep, low weight lifting/power for up to 60 minutes. Also, would it hinder my fat loss progress to do a 40 hour fast in the middle of the week? And is all this doable? Thank you in advance!
No announcement yet.
Carb refeeding but probably not in ketosis yet
