haha, heck no - I was already eating semi-low carb, paired with the fact that I'm already sitting at ~10% bf, I decided to skip it. The purpose of the 10-day ULC is to "teach" your body how to use ketones for energy - the first few ULC days were rough but now my body is used to the ULC days so I don't feel like $hit. If you do run the ULC 10-day run, make sure you keep fat HIGH - most folks recommend 1g of fat and protein per lb of bw.
