: : Need lose fat. Thought would try body opus. Will do about 200 calories below maintenance. Question is about carb up. If I follow the plan the first 24 hours will put me 1000 calories over just on carbs alone and the second 24 hours will be maintenance on cars alone. When I add protien calories I will be way over on calories. Is it ok to eat this many excess calories on a diet?
: On this particular ketosis diet, you have to carb up on the weekends in order to get a mild anabolic stimulus. If you follow the diet correctly,
: it is almost impossible for a mild calorie overload to become bodyfat. You will be so low on muscle glycogen, that all of the surplus carbs will
: go there. Duchaine has designed this diet to do this. If you are tough enough to follow the diet, it works very well. I have tried it myself.
: If you want maximum results from this diet, follow it exactly as it is designed.
: For those of you who don't have this book, you are missing some great info on dieting in general. There is excellent info on all aspects of
: dieting. It has good info on all 3 of the most popular diets, including high carb-low fat, high protein-medium carb-medium fat (my favorite),
: and the Bodyopus diet. There is also a great section on thyriod drugs.
: Get the book. Knowledge is power.
