I don't really know; I suppose you can say that Atkins is a particular application of a ketogenic diet, but only the first 2 weeks (Induction phase), and only if you end up getting a lot of calories from fat, as opposed to loading up too much on protein. There is no calorie counting.What is the difference between Atkins and keto then ? Indeed, it seems that Atkins also use the ketonic element to target fat loss. Is there some calories counting for instance ?
Check out Dr Shawn Baker's twitter (@SBakerMD). He's on an all meat diet and is a powerlifter. Lots of good info, I'm going to try it out.I use both "low" carb and intermittent fasting.
Currently at 20% carbs.
Fast 24 hours once every 8 days.
Potentially will transition into zero carb/all meat food intake.
Or, go back to fasting twice in a 7 day period of my incoming keto supplements work as advertised.
Basically, I try to balance my desire for 7 consecutive training days (and the necessary recovery ability) and the desire to lean out.
Wow, it's a small, strong world! I dipped my toe into zero carb in the weeks leading up to TSC. Five days zero carb, two days back to "retro" eating. Now that TSC is over, I'm ready to take the plunge and see what happens on an all meat diet.He is exactly who prompted me to think that way!
It's something we posted about in the members section a few weeks back. There is so much cool stuff here that it's hard to keep track of it all.
It's tough, try to cut out all carbs except vegetables for 2-3 weeks. No dairy or fruit. I went through a couple days of withdrawal where I had a headache, after that I felt great. Went for 3 weeks and then started slowly reintroducing other carbs back like fruit and a few starches. Like they say, it's simple but not easy.I am all set to start low carb high fat/intermittent fasting. I did it for a bit as more anabolic diet/intermittent fating ten years ago and dropped fat and looked good. I also pounded the protein as I worked a very labour intense job. I have become way too much of a carb junkie lately. Any tips to help beat the sugar cravings? I used to be able to do most things cold turkey, but not so much anymore. I will also be cutting out milk as there is too carbs. I will be using half/half for my egg shake before bed.
I have to agree that if someone want to do keto he must check protein amounts. Too much of it can kick one out of keto.Eating more protein can get you out of keto (if memory serves).
How do you do that. A quick look at the nutritarian pyramid tells me to get 30-60% of cals from vegetables.Nutritarian
It is a goal more than a destination. Sometimes I get close, sometimes I am far from it. The big picture is to seek nutrient density. Lots of leafy green vegetables (every day), plus a wide variety of unprocessed plants, quality beef, liver, fish, eggs, some dairy, giant salads. No sugar or junk food. I'll eat something off my list occasionally (i.e., pizza or a sandwich) but 95% of the time I am on target.How do you do that.

I have problems eating 3000cals per day with calorie dense food like meat and fish, but under no circumstances would I be able to eat 900-1800cals from just vegetables.
900-1800cals equal 2.6Kg-5.2Kg of broccoli
