LTL on CBL pros and cons:

Quote:
For me CBL works great. In my last big period of weightloss I went from 95-96kgs all of the way down to 77kgs at my lowest. During that period I went from carb cycling to full Leto diet as I got leaner. Eventually I was having 25grams of carbs pre and post training and one carb up day per week where I'd eat as much as possible. I got pretty lean, 10% body fat possibly lower but I also lost muscle, was grouchy, miserable and lacked energy.

Naturally I am not a big eater of carbs anyway. Never have been. I would eat meat and veg all day with the odd sweet treat rather than loads of potatoes, bread or rice with each meal. Those kind of carbs often left me feeling lethargic particularly first thing in the morning when the blood sugar drop was pretty bad.

All of these things combined mean that CBL works well for me. To answer your original question the pros are:

- Works with my natural eating rhythms (light in the morning, heavy in the evening) and with my natural food tastes as described above.
- It requires minimal food prep as you can always find meat to eat and remove carbs.
- It's a sociable diet. I can eat with the family in the evening and if I have a business lunch and stay on diet without having to raise hell to get the food I need.
- You get to eat whatever carbs you want.
- It's the only time I have actively recomped since I started training. I can maintain weight and have my waist get smaller at the same time.

Cons:

- Difficult to gain mass on it I think although I haven't tried yet.
- Won't work for everyone. If you are a natural meat eater, it's great but my wife for example processes carbs really well, never gets the blood sugar spikes and drops that I had even when eating "good" carbs so she would HATE the keto part of the day.

I have been having a lot of thoughts about carb back loading lately. I need to find something to balance my eating and limit my winter fat gain. I am thinking of using a modified carb back load. Basically adding in carbs pre workout. Chad Wesley Smith uses something similar. Here is what I was thinking:

730 am-2 tsp of cpoconut oil
10 am- shake- 50 grams protein
12- lean beef or chicken plus veggies
2-nuts and fruit
Possible additional piece of fruit here, depending on my day at work
around 4-5 workout
Post workout feast


I have a few reasons for doing it this way. When I previously did CBL I lost a lot of weight fast and it really affected my lifts. I am looking to maintain my weight right now and slowly work on my body fat levels while staying at the same weight. I have ground beef for lunch on my workout days to get in more fat and calories. Chicken on off days to keep some variety.

I found that previously I would get really fatigued about half way through my workouts previously, I felt like I was running on empty. So I can have some additional quick calories before my workout. Not sure when I will start this, I am just really throwing out ideas right now.

I'm currently reading it, but I didn't purchase it. It was originally $89 which is absurd for an e-book. Now it's ~$50, but that's still too much, even for print.
