The "Anabolic Diet" Thread. Come on bro, I already told you on the keto and health thread you posted that HolaBola is running the anabolic diet. Check out his profile and you will see how well it works. Read DiPasquales books on the anabolic diet. Pm me I ahve the ebook if you want it. It works well, keto works great but i cant adhere to it strictly enough I go nuts. I think the carb up works well eating kinda sloppy for a while but after a few weeks you really have to clean up your carb up to mak eit effective.
There are also different ways to approach the carb up some people keep the fat intake mid to high range and lower protein. I tried to keepo fat to a min and lower protein slightly then get about carbs in per day plus a cheta meal on sunday.
Its def a good diet, just be consistent and do your cardio. It's good to include fish oils at all times, regardless of diet. I know it is, but if one is trying to gain muscle and fish oils anti-inflammatory effects become an obstacle for the muscles to repair itself..
I havent seen a lot of info on here about the Anabolic Diet so I thought I'd get a thread started. Im no expert but I know a bit about it. Basics Just like a keto diet for 5 consecutive days. I did cardio mon-fri for 10 min- 40 min depending on time. Its also nice because you can vary a little bit from the rules. Im reading Anabolic Solution by Mauro G. Di Pasquale, which is in my opinion the best thing to do if you really wanna do this diet.
He has one version for powerlifters and one for bb's. If you go to MD No Bull Radios website, you can listen to old episodes and they have to hour long interviews with him. Or check out http: If people are interested Id be happy to tell them what I did, I know a few others have tried it as well. We wil just say good and bad so we dont have to get into lenghty terms. Fish oil is effective treating bad inflammation i. Fish oil is an efa and I would recommend it heavily. I just started an anabolic diet thread i the method to the madness section with links and info.
I lost weight pretty quick but I hated the calories. I was taking in about and I just felt like I needed more food. I always felt flat and didnt get decent pumps. But thats just me. This diet does allow for higher calories and which seems counterintuitive, but it does work.
I mean if I were prepping for a show, I prob wouldnt use this diet but if I'm a normal guy trying to get shredded or lose some fat while staying strong, this is great. Thats why I use it because I can train the same and not lose any energy and still feel full. I'm actually on this diet now. Today is my last day of the 14 day no carb initial start up phase I agree it is really easy to use and you can kill food cravings every weekend.
I just wanted to bring it to peoples attention f they had no idea what it is. It seems like there are a few guys using it already, its just not as popular on here as keto. I did this diet about the same time Hola Bola did. I lost about 10 lbs on it but I gained a lot back during the 2 day carb up. I think that it is too much, I switched to 1 day and started to lose steady again. I changed to a more traditional Keto for the last 4 weeks I was dieting. Now I'm doing "Keto" but adding carbs to my before and after WO meals.
So far I'm losing lb a week when I don't stay the same. I got both e books and I don't like the Anabolic Solution, he goes too much into the details of his supplements instead of giving examples of the diet and explaining more about it like he does on the 1st book. Ive been thinking of trying the carbs pre and psot workout with the no carb during the week and a 2 day carb up for a bulk but I havent decided yet.
Im nursing some injuries and IM just eating and taking my time to get healthy. Like I said, you might not get shredded in the same amount of time you do on keto, but this is a good approach for people who dont have a ton of weight to lose and just wana get rid of some bulking bodyfat and back into that good bf range.
I did the same, anabolic for a few months and then straight keto to finish off. You can lose a ton of weight doing this diet, if youre putting too much weight back on during carb up Id suggest cutting back slightly and eating less simple carbs and cheat foods.
But the goal isnt keto just to make sure all energy is coming from fat and protein during the week. The only downside is not being able to use Torrent post True, load up on the weekend haha. But if you are trying to choose between keto and AD, keto you will have no torrent for quite some time, on AD you can have it two days a week.
If you read the book he says that on his diet you can have all your carbs at the end of the day or split during. He also states that you can take up to g carb and still be good on the diet. I see no problem by doing it and taking Torrent PWO.
That is what I'm doing now. I'm still loosing 1 lb a week eating maintenance calories, which I'm pretty sure that is fat that is going away. Still have a long way to go, but I will continue this approach until I plateau, then I will go on a full Keto dropping the Torrent and the Oats. This is why I started this thread though because ive only done AD one way and I was hoping others lik eyou have experience with it because I think its a great diet a lot of people can benefit from.
I was the same way, I went from 2 day carb up to 1 day, to 1 meal every days, to what I posted above that I have been doing for the last month. The body is changing, and that is all that matters for me. The fact that I'm still going down in weight is a plus. Im very interested in this. Is there a great book I can get to follow a step by step process of this diet??
Im really foolish to diets so i would need almost a day by day layout. Anybody wanting to start this diet,I'd recomend checking out http: It's got shit load of pages but it's worth the read.
Have done the diet in the past for both bulking and cutting and have had some good results. Will be starting it again as soon as I can sort some kind of budget diet does tend to be a bit pricey. Did my first weekend carb up and could feel the point when I needed to refrain from more carbs.
I could just feel the "smoothing" over effect and was like up thats it I found one day to be ample to re carb up as well.
Down 5 lbs pretty sure its water as I look a lot leaner and clothes fit better. I am also more vascular. Yeap, that is the first impression on the AD. Look up Hola Bola on BB. He posted pics of him before and like 2 weeks after and his vascularity was much more pronounced on the after pics.
Yeah he sent me the book Good shit ain't it! I feel weird not eating healthy like before Now am I missing something, or what would someone on this diet do to atleast TRY to control Cholestrol levels? What do you guys think of that? How can that be controlled? Taking in spoonfuls of Metimucil sp? You need to read the book to understand it. My good cholesterol went up and the bad went down in a 2 month period. I took Metamucil the first month just to keep me regular once I adapted to the diet, the fiber in almonds was more than enough.
I have just been adding fiber to my post workout shakes What are the supplements I should be taking while on the Anabolic Diet?? Basic, Pre, During, Post workout. Pre I use to take Pump, and just Iso Whey after, now as long as I don't go over g of carb a day I take Shock Therapy w Storm 20g Intra Aid 10g and Torrent 40g , during the rest of the day is mostly prot and fats, and some carbs from spinach, almonds, pb, etc It is working great for me, once I go down to were I want to be I will increase the carbs to the same amount of g's of protein.
I woul deat a meal about an hour pre workout then pump and during workout Id have some aminos mixed in water then post aminos and gluatmine mixed with water and a vanadyl sulfate or just an iso whey shake. I take it with my full breakfast after my post workout shake which is around minutes later I was reading last months issue of muscle and fitness at the gym yesterday and they have a "eat like a big while gettign shredded diet," they claim they created.
It was just a rip off of the anabolic diet, so its seems to be getting a little more mainstream attention.
