    Please post. I'll look at them and tell you if I think they are basically the same or not.

    I took a look at the anabolic diet on the strong lifts web page. That is a cyclic ketogenic diet where, after the first 12 days of keto diet, you add in some carbs and cut the fats on the weekends and eat protein and fat the rest of the week.

    There are a lot of guys who swear by a cyclic ketogenic diet.

    I have only mixed in carb days on weekend when I was cheating, and always found when I did that I came out of ketogenesis and it took several days to get back in. So the school of thought I have been following is cyclic ketogenic is not as effective as plain ketogenic, for fat loss.

    I think cyclic ketogenic diet is more of a permanent lifestyle change, and the ketogenic diet is really for short term fat loss (i.e. over a period of months).

    If you're a drug user, look into metformin. Knocks you right back into ketosis. No more 3 days of feeling sluggish after a carb binge

    You can eat plenty of oils and butter, anything fatty, on the ketogenic diet. Just be sure to measure if you're using a lot.

    Sorry I didn't think to add those on the grocery list. That is because I always use olive oil to cook no matter what my diet is, so I wasn't thinking of it as a special ingredient. LOL.

    I love these but the one thing you have to watch out is amount of CALs. Its the best way to burn, people make mistakes thinking its an all you can eat buffet because there are no carbs.

    Dude, I tried those links and they scared me because of all the downloading that went on before anything opened up. So I didn't go forward with them. Sorry. Maybe you can post some lists of the foods they recommend you eat?

    just a bit of input. If going strictly keto, avoid almonds and some other nuts because they will actually keep you from going into ketosis.
