Okay I decided to start a Keto Journal, mainly for my own benefit too keep myself motivated and to atttract advice from more experienced forum members.
I plan to write loosely about my Keto experience. I will post about my food diary but if you want to see the diary in full detail you can follow me on myfitnesspal.com/jasonhannen just add me as a friend.
Hopefully I will achieve the results I am expecting which will allow others to draw from both my experience and mistakes.
All constructive criticism is welcome (and needed)
For the same reason I started 5x5 Stronglifts, the advice and reasoning for doing so seems to be strong. I started 5x5 training and the results are tremendous, my gym buddy and I have both seen excellent gains in our first 6 weeks HOWEVER whilst I am happy with my muscle and strength gains I am seriously disappointed with my body fat percentage which has not moved from 26% in the 6 weeks we have being doing 5x5. So I checked out what I consider to be reliable internet sources seeking information on how to change up my diet to decrease my Body Fat percentage.
I read up on Keto and it seems like the right diet programme for me as it wont affect my strength and muscle gains from 5x5 and should have the desired effect in reducing my bodyfat percentage. The theory being that by taking no more than 30grams of Carbs a day you train your body to use fat as its main source of energy therefore If I am in Calorie deficit my bodyfat percentage should decrease.
