The first thing was if you could tell how much I should bench after coming back from a broken collarbone 5 weeks ago. If you have, then I would definitely suggest starting with even less than you think you can handle. Then increase weight each week. This has answered so many questions I had and now im really confident in hitting my goals.
From your comment, I can tell you have more than enough enthusiasm and dedication to put your diet plan into action and achieve your goals. My husband and I are gonna start doing this this week! We are going to get a food scale too. If that makes any sense at all.
I mean, we would be able to tell how many calories or grams a plate or bowl of food is total, but when mixed together, how do you measure the macros? Hi Mikayla, great question! You would just weigh out the individual ingrediants and calculate their macros. Then add them all up together. Then you just divide that cumulative total of all macros in all ingredients…. Total calories for that portion would be I want to ask, If i am working out 7 day a week, is it good?? Or a day off is recommend????
That depends on many things: Now, that being said, it is possible for beginners to train 6 days per week and still get good results. I recommend you also take a look and my weight training routines page for several other routines for beginners, intermediates and advanced lifters.
Please do not suggest taking fats postworkout because it can lower the Glycemic Index of the post workout and it can delay the whey protein. Thanks for the comment, Tahir. That may or may not be the ideal, but any effect will likely be negligible. The most important thing is to get some protein in, within a reasonable time after training.

I workout x a week heavy lifting powerlifter , but my weight has gotten too high for me.
I refuse to be apart of that! So thank you for this awesome read and inspiring article. Awesome job on your progress!!
Thank you for the nice comment! My blood pressure is still high. Did your blood pressure ever go down. I have been on this diet about 3 weeks now. I wanted to try keto before getting on the meds. Julius thanks for the reply. I am usually asleep anywhere between pm. I usually eat dinner early between 5 and 6. Work out at about 7: I drink caffeine in the mornings. I have a full gym in my garage where I do light weight until fatigue or close to it for 3 sets one after the other Bench, Squat, Barbell Rows, Military, and RDL with about a two and a half minute in between.
When I am done I usually throw in some auxillaries.. I was thinking of adding HIIT on off days sprints on treadmill, jump rope.
Hi, Its really a nice article. I will start following this ketogenic diet from today. I want to ask few questions. I heard this is good for weight loss. Hi, stay away from the fruit! You can instead eat vegetables. Opt for leafy greens, cauliflower, broccoli. The best, very best thing you can do is make this a lifestyle change. Why would you even want to go back to eating like before? I find the some warm lemon water is best in the morning. Half a lemon in a mug of boiled water will really do you good first thing in the morning before anything else.
Just remember that lemons do have carbs, so make sure to count it part of your count. Julius thanks for sharing your story with us and the great breakdown of everything. From your knowledge and experience is this normal? And is working out more than 3x a week counter productive in your opinion? What time are you going to sleep? Most importantly, what are you doing before you go to sleep? Do you drink caffeine? Yes you can exercise more than three times a week… What is your exercise routine?
Can you provide me with a full week meal plan idea? Julius — You are awesome and nice job with this! I have been a crazy person researching every university and medical journal to study nutritional ketosis as well as fasting, and how to use in combination. So far, 26 pounds in 6 weeks — this is huge — and I was inspired to read your results. Same question for whey powder vs egg white powder?? I thought the whey resulted in a higher insulin response…have you compared the two?
Thanks for your kind words… Great job on your results so far! You actually inspire me! I get all my protein from meats. What are your workouts like? Hey this article was amazing! Ive just completed my week 1 of the Keto diet and initially i lost some weight, but as of today I have put on weight. Not sure if this is normal, I have stuck to the diet seriously. Thank you… Do you exercise? What do you eat? Are you getting enough fats? Thank you so much for all of the information. You answered all of my questions.
Hey Julius my is Ciera. I new at this keto diet. You can Keto adapt successfully… Just do it slower than normal. Start off lowering your net carbs with g a day for at least the first week… Then gradually reduce your net carb intake down to 15g a day… Make sure your getting enough fats! I have just got on to keto diet since yesturday. I would also like to know if cardio exercises like aerobics are ok to do when you are on keto, what do i do if i see a lot of sudden weight drop, should i stop cardio and switch to weight training?
Resistance training is the best… Bodyweight or weights… HIIT training is ok… Mild biking, walking…etc… Most cardio raises your cortisol levels keeping you from Keto adapting…. A day for me at the min looks something like this. Breakfast — Pea Protein shake with berries and coconut oil, linseeds and half an avocado Lunch — Cream Cheese pancakes with Mushrooms in Pesto and 1 celery Stalk Dinner — 2 chicken Thighs with Blue Cheese sauce Snacks — Cheese, chirizo sticks, nuts etc Drinks — 2 ltrs of water a day, some decaf Green Tea red wine or clear spirits at the weekend.
I have the Icarb app that gives me the net carbs for most things. Lol… Ditch the protein shake and replace it with more fatty meats… What are those pancakes made of? Easily the best keto article I have come across — great work! I think my biggest concern atm is being unable to exercise.
Due to my size it is painful so the only work out i really get is taking my dog for a walk. Walking is a great way to start… The main thing is lowering your carb intake and getting healthy fats and green vegetables….
Both pork and beef. Rice, cookies, ice cream etc. Rice, cookies and ice cream! Hi Julius, great job! Thanks for all the details here.
No bacon or steak for me. Also, dairy gives me breakouts Can you please suggest some meal plans? I need to drop at least 15 pounds in 4 weeks. Hoping you can help. Always worked out, always ate what I thought was cleanly. A piece of bread or 3!!!
My goal is 20 lbs in 6 weeks. Oh and thanks by the way…. Is this diet for me? Thanks for the compliment… Wow! Thank you some much for taking the time to write this article! I have learned so much from reading this today. Could you tell me what you would recommend as far as an eating plan if I worked out first thing in the morning around 5am?
I really enjoyed your article. I do have a couple questions sorry if I missed the answers in any of the comments above , how would someone calculate their personal macros? I dropped just over 3 lbs the first week, less than 1 the 2nd week and not sure this week as I weigh on Mondays. Also, did you have to make any adjustments for heavy lifting days?
Hi, I started last month and lost 16 pounds then went a week and no loss, thought ok fine then I gained 3 pounds and nothing I did wrong, no cheating at all and I go to the gym 5 days a week — nothing hardcore but I go.
Is it normal for that to happen? Getting frustrated especially when I see all these people loosing all this weight and doing fabulous. I know I cannot drink oil or butter in my coffee — but I have started to use coconut oil more and heavy cream too.
It can be many variables… Are you getting enough fats? How much sleep are you getting? Do you have any health issues like thyroid, histamine…etc…? I try to track nutrients and I know I need to do better but I am pretty sure I am getting enough fats and calories but the pen and paper will tell for sure.
Is there an audio of an exercise program that you know of? For stretches for core exercises? Stress could be one of the culprits… Stress raises your cortisol levels causing you to be in a catabolic state… Do you meditate? I use to in the beginning but as you get use to it… You pretty much know what you are getting. Congrats on getting started, keep us updated on your progress….
I have lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks. I do spin classes 5 days a week. High intensity biking for 45 mins. You mentioned too cardio can kick you out if ketosis. Can you please elaborate? Thank you for the great advice. Your hormonal systems interpret this energy as glucose. I hear you on the trial and error. Thanks for the thorough article.
What is your carb intake on a daily basis? Are you exercising and getting quality sleep? Please tel how to calculate the protein, minerals etc. Should we need to exercise along with this diet? Please share the document if you have any. Hi I am an Indian I weigh around kg. Have tried many ways but still not very successful. I am a vegetarian. I posted an review about a low carb vegan diet, Maybe this may help you get started… https: Tell me about your exercise routine while eating Keto.
Workout with medium to heavey loads between reps. I feel I can do it the right way now and start losing. No… Actually I did a lot research and of course, trial and error…lol… I pretty much use myself as a guinea pig.
Thanks for the comment. I so admire all the hard work you put into this article. I learned so much! And you look healthy and great! This article was really thorough and includes everything someone like me needs to know about keto. I have more energy now but I know I could have more.
Yes, I lost some weight—about 25 to 30 pounds over the course of the last two years, but I need to lose way more. Your article was a godsend…thank you!! Your email address will not be published.
