Carb Backloading without keto?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Does anybody know if carb-backloading post-workout for muscle gain only works if you are keto the rest of the time, or can it still have benefits at around 150 grams of carbs per day, i.e. more of a "maintenance" daily carb intake?

No disresepct meant to Kiefer and his methods, but while I'm not currently feeling like taking on an intensive new approach, (or buying a pricey new book), I have been casually loading carbs after workouts for three weeks and have noticed increased muscle mass the likes of which I never got in such a short period before. Which is cool.

In John Kiefer's CARB BACK LOADING 1.0, there are two choices:

1) Strength Accumulation - Fat loss & maintainence of LBM as well as maintaining/increasing strength.

2) Density Bulking - Muscle Mass increase while limiting Fat increases.

Both depend on your BF%, and Kiefer suggests not worrying about Backloading until you're under 15% for either goal. But both utilize the 10 day reorientation period using keto and then

This may sound odd, but buy the book. The man is running a business, and it's about $50 at the moment, and you get constant updates to it for free when they are rolled out. I'm enjoying reading the science behind it all as well. It's a worthwhile investment, and on top of the free updates, you get extra access to the forums, where a the logs and everything are kept.

By the way, not in any way associated with DH. I'm just a fan of Kiefer, and a lot of people are trying to get by doing CBL by just scrounging information on the net, when it's all in the book in meticulous detail :)

I don't think that is a wise take. Believe me, I have tried it before and my body mass decline tremendously. Checkout a few articles in my site Carb Backloading

It depends on you, of course. Try what you want but don't call it Carb Back Loading if you break the rules.
