I've been following a cyclical ketogenic diet for 9 days now, and was wondering how everyone else that does this handles their post-workout shake.

I've been eating 20 to 30 carbs per day from Sunday through Friday afternoon's workout, then carb up on Friday night and all day Saturday. The fat is starting to melt away, but the strength is also...

I'm not on a cycle right now, just my normal HRT test dosage.

During the week on CKD, I measure out 8 oz. of milk to make my post-workout shake, add protein and ground flKP seed - giving me about 15 carbs.

Any thoughts about possibly making the shake using orange juice and dextrose (which is my normal post-workout shake). Will the larger amount of injested carbs affect ketosis for an extended time, or will they be utilized right away for muscle recovery?

JGUNS, JB, Big Cat, and other vets, any theories/suggestions?

During dieting down if I don't have a complete protein shake, I mean with about 50 grams of whey plus 100 grams of malto, I would end up looking flat, but it's just me.

I agree. This makes your diet more like a TKD. For me, this even works better than a CKD but you can't really judge your progress by the scale. Use calipers and/or the mirror.

Good idea and you may ask a friend to take pictures for comparing purposes.

That would probably even be better, since looking in the mirror is pretty subjective.

I also lean more towards the tkd- USe Vitagro post workout (75g) for glyogen replenishment and just protein and fat the rest of the time
