Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 30 of The Trials of the Anabolic Diet. Now I would go and write a big article explaining what the Anabolic Diet consists of, but I'm going to go ahead and take the lazy man's option and just throw down someone else's article, since it lays the diet plan out so nicely. I was intrigued by this diet and went and read the whole thread it took me several days though, and not all in a row , and from what I gathered from the many people who have given this diet a shot thought the results were awesome So now I'm giving it a go, I'm heading in to week 2, and I've created this thread to spark interest, as well as share my experiences with the diet.
Hopefully some of you will come to realize that high carb is NOT the only way, and are brave enough to give this a shot. Reading the thread I linked will give enough proof that this diet does indeed work, and allows you to gain maximum amount of muscle while completely limiting fat gain some people have even gained muscle while in a cutting phase.. I know I am! It's easier to get the single 10 at the bar, than one of the five 8s. Did you read the article?
So yeah, tons of fattier meats on weekdays, as well as cheeses, eggs, butter, olive oil, fish, etc. Keep in mind guys, this is NOT a keto diet, Dr. DiPasquale states that very clearly a few times in his book. However I got a pretty big pump just from sitting here eating carbs the past two days hit me very hard after I ate whole wheat pasta in particular.
This is from all the glycogen pouring into your muscles, and apparently it's pretty common. Anyways, it as pretty cool getting pumped while doing nothing. A typical day of mine looks like this: The reason for this is fiber doesn't affect us as carbs.
So you can eat TONS of these veggies because the fiber count is high: Pretty much any dark green leafy vegetable is okay. Originally Posted by samkd. But don't you NEED carbs to put on mass? Thats always been my understanding. I'll have to go and read the article! Well keep reporting to us man, sounds interesting. Yeah for sure, going to eat a big ol' steak in about 30 minutes, then give it some time to digest and I'm off to the gym!
When you start burning fat for energy, nothing gets a buzz going like a fatty steak. You can literally feel the energy run through you after eating one. I only went to Saturday at 1 because I was getting sick of the carbs, and wanted to get back to the meat. I probably won't do anything sugary like cookie dough again because it sent me into a sugar coma and I went to sleep for an hour or two after eating it.
I'm not necessarily going to do this, but when I bulk I think I may try and keep my carbs low. Unfortunately my parents are vegetarians so it would be very tough for me to get meat daily inless i buy it myself. Originally Posted by Ted Nugent. Would you still see benefits from dropping your carbs to grams a day and increasing the fat? My fear is that I won't be able to get through the first week what with all the oil and butter mentally.

What's wrong with steak in the morning? Steak is great any time! Haha, the steak was my second meal, so I was already awake. When I woke up I had a cheese omelette.
Bump for people interested. Let's make this thread for all to share their experiences of this diet if they choose to try it. Oh, Shugart, how we love your willingness to be your own guinea pig. I just finished making chicken wings on the BBQ, and the seasoning I used alongside the crispiness the skin developed made it taste like KFC chicken. This Anabolic diet is more or less a Keto diet.. Still though, I plan to do go on a Keto diet after football and get down to single digit bodyfat.
Keep informed on how well it works for ya. Legalize it and I will advertise it! Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.
