Do any of you have experience with low carb diets with regards to getting ready to step on stage?
I've done 2 ketogenic diets before but I lacked the knowledge to do it exactly correct. I lost a lot of fat, but muscle too. I'm giving myself 20 weeks for prep time so there is some room for trial and error. I am perfectly okay with placing lower if I learn exactly what to do next time, but I'd like to avoid any major pitfalls ahead of time if any of you had experience.
Also, I'm reading that calorie intake will be higher on a ketogenic diet than on a normal carb diet. Is this merely because of the fat (9kcals/g), or will I actually be eating more food?
