Alexander replied to wingtcoach's question:

Carb Nite vs Slow Carb

After SCD and then strict prolonged keto I personally inevitably ended up with cycling carbs: ultra-low carb (ULC) high fat 6 days a week and carbnite on weekends. Why? First, it's a damn simple...

Alexander replied to Moses Ong's question:

Sleepy in the afternoon.

Is it sleepiness or tiredness? In the later -- maybe you're not eating enough. On SCD is quite easy to eat less that you actually need.

Alexander replied to ms504's question:

Is Mayo ok?

Mayo is similar to cheese and butter which are in the "grey" area of SCD. Why? Not because it's about lactose (butter and cheese) etc. It's just because these things are almost pure FATS...

Alexander asked a question:

Mood swings after the cheat day

Maybe my question isn't quite fair here because I'm on Keto/Carbnite doing ultra low carb during the week. And maybe my reaction on ingesting carbs differs from people eating beans. But it's inter...

Recommended reading: New Atkins for a New You

I read lots of opinions that playing low-carb (not ultra-low carb having 30g carbs a day or less) game inevitably leads to a stall. I'd rather stick with ultra low carb and maybe refeed from time ...

Carb back loading

Carb back-loading can be used along with Carbnite (cheating in the Kiefer's protocol). I know folks who do back-loading on heavy training days, plus they do a cheat day as well on weekends. You wo...

Alexander asked a question:

To have or not to have breakfast

A few popular low-carb diets (CNS/CBL, Bulletproof, Leangains etc.) recommend to ditch breakfast. You may eat ultra-low carb breakfast but carbs for breakfast are really big "no-no" in t...

Alexander replied to wingtcoach's question:

How many of you have dropped the beans?

I switched to Keto, then I switched Carbnite. Basically, it looks similar to SCD without beans. You do ultra low carb 5-6 days (proteins, fats and veggies), then you do a 6-7 hour window (from aro...
