    Having seen great results so far, and the whole science and idea behind the diet really clicks with me. I carb load on Friday after my last workout of the week, and through to Saturday afternoon-ish.

    Do you keep this diet year round?
    I do keep this diet year round, and would say this is certainly sustainable in the long term (precisely why I called it a lifestyle and not a diet). Contrary to pupular belief, there are many, many studies out there on ketogenic dieting and the numerous benefits to be had from it

    I'm also having a lot of success keeping carbyhydrates low by following the Paleo/Primal lifestyle. Most days I eat a lot of vegetables (salads, steamed vegetables, raw vegetables, etc) and rarely eat fruit. I do not count calories or try to avoid fat in meat. Most of the time I do not eat dairy unless I put some cheese in a salad. I use a lot of coconut oil for healthy fats.

    I found that over the last 10 months or so that I'd skip meals when I wasn't hungry, even if I brought food with me to work to eat. Right now I am practicing intermittent fasting + Paleo/Primal with good results. I'll eat between 3pm and 9pm each day for most days of the week. Some of the time I am probably in ketosis but I do not test for it. I've lost 70 lbs so far and still going strong. Thanks for getting the information out there!

    I'm on the second week of Tim's Slow Carb diet and I am doing well with it. He did say that ketogenic was the only other way he saw blood vessels on his abs. I beleive he called the ketogenic diet 'extreme'

    Thank you for the explanation of the difference between the two.

    Way to be with the coconut oil I think that stuff is great. I am no expert but I think the animal fat in meat is something that you want to consume if your meat is from a quality source it helps your body absorb all types of nutrients. Check out Eat Fat Lose Fat. The authors are big proponents of high saturated fat(coconut oil and animal fat) and low carb as well as raw dairy. 70 lbs is awesome bro keep it up!

    Hi Pat--

    I find this information here and on your blog very informative. I am definitely interested in trying this to help drop my body fat percentage.

    Would you be kind enough to post a one day sample of some of the meals you eat?

    Also, are you able to sustain energy levels throughout long cardio workouts with this diet? I am an avid runner/cyclist and during long runs/rides usually carbs are the first thing eaten like a gu packet, clif shot blocks, or a banana.

    Should i try something like cashews or almonds or attempt to make my own type of gu with almond butter and protein powder?

    thanks,

    Chad
