Carb Refeed Questions
Title says it all - I have a history of gut issues (leaky gut, suspecting SIBO, bloating, etc) and found that a keto diet kept the bloating away and BM's regular. I'm currently doing Lyle Mcdonald's PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) where... (more)
I've been keto for past two weeks. Been under 50 g carbs everyday and taking in a lot of healthy fats. I feel great and have no carb cravings. A lot of keto diets recommend refeed once a week. curious how many of you that are keto do that... (more)
