This is the busy time of year for us in the fitness industry and I am putting in a lot of hours. I am constantly working, not only physically in my retail store, but I am constantly looking into new products for the store, new promotions to offer my customers, putting together marketing ideas, etc. A lot of nights it puts me to bed after midnight. The only time I can really get a workout in, is early in the morning before my kids get up.

It was created by Dan Duchaine. As Dan states, it will help you lose fat, and trick the metabolism into anabolic growth. It is a bit similar to the anabolic diet but different because the anabolic diet lets you eat whatever you what, as long as it's on the proper days. Dan lays out which carbs to eat, how much, and when to stop.
He also explains how to train and how to reach glycogen supercompensation carb loading. Before you start such a radical diet I highly recommend that you see a qualified physician first. After you get checked out and everything is alright then you can begin. This diet claims to help you lose all the fat you want without losing any muscle. Sounds to good to be true, but believe it or not it works! You must also train 3 times for a total of about 5 hours a week. Ketogenic diets work by drastically lowering carbohydrate intake.
What this does is reduce the amount of insulin secreted and therefore tricking the metabolism. The leading cause of weight gain in the US is not from eating to much dietary fat but from eating to many carbohydrates. Insulin is a hormone released by your pancreas following carbohydrate ingestion and the associated rise in blood sugar glucose. Insulin triggers a few things: it brings blood sugar into the muscles for energy, it converts blood sugar to glycogen, stores extra blood sugar as fat, and it prevents fat-burning of existing bodyfat.
In order to achieve fat loss we must limit insulin levels by reducing the intake of carbohydrates. Most ketogenic diets are classified as hazardous by most physicians, but when used under control, ketosis is a great fat-loss tool.
When your in ketosis your pancreas will now produce glycogon instead of insulin. Glycogon can be loosely called a catabolic hormone. It isn't normally secreted but when it is it's usually an indiction of starvation or diabetes. What it does is break down fatty acids and convert them into ketones. These ketones will be the primary fuel source for your body, including the brain. This state occurs when there are more ketones than glucose in the blood.
However ketosis is not for everyone, if you are not active and don't require a lot of energy ketosis can be very hazardous. It tends cause ketoacidosis. This can make the blood acidic if they are not used up, so I can't stress it enough to exercise and train sufficiently. The reason behind this is that it will cause an anabolic effect.
This is absolutely necessary due to the loss of muscle during the week. Glycogen supercompensation will cause cellular kinetic expansion that is claimed to be just like steroids and growth hormone. You can get these fats from a few sources: fish, beef, whole eggs, olive or safflower oil, bacon, sausage, pork, and cheese. That means no bread, cereal, fruit, pasta, milk, sugar, the list goes on and on.
Carbs are everywhere so you must be careful. On the weekends you can eat some real food but be careful not to consume over 16g per lean body weight kg of carbs the result is in calories so to convert it to grams: just divide your answer by 4. As far as training goes, three days a week will be adequate. On Monday you should train you bigger muscles chest, shoulders,triceps, abs because you are the strongest from the carb loading.
On Tuesday you finish up the rest of your body back, biceps, legs. Then on Friday comes the fun part. What you do is two hours before you train you should eat some fruit. I like having 2 apples but you can eat whatever you like, but keep it under calories. This will help you totally deplete your muscles of the last bit of glycogen, and will greatly improve glycogen supercompensation.
I have been on this diet for about 6 weeks so for and the results are quite impressive. I couldn't believe it myself I actually gained weight and lost fat at the same time.
Due to amount of information Duchaine put it this book I can only summarize it here. Dan explains many more key issues that will help guarantee your success, so I can't stress it enough to go and read it for yourself.

Personal Trainer Q&A Body Opus And Muscle Growth
Foreword By One Smart Cookie This pdf book is a compilation of 26 weeks worth of Lyle McDonald journaling his experiences whilst going through what at the time was considered a very revolutionary way to diet. I highly suggest that you read from start to finish and read again to make sure you have fully taken on board what has been journaled. That way if you do decide to try it for yourself you have a good solid idea of the background of what it all entails, which will help you immensely in doing it right first time. I decided to put it all together in one easy to read ebook so that it wasnt lost as I feel that it is a wealth of info and a good base from which to start your ketogenic lifestyle from. And being in one book a heck of a lot easier than having to scroll through countless journals to find that single piece that you needed to ratify some small notion that may have been bugging you.
