I’ll add my food log later today or tomorrow after I get my groceries. I haven’t gotten blood work done yet but I plan on getting it done soon. I’ll update the post after. Maybe it could be helpful to someone else.

I think you may have hit on something I completely blanked on though and this may add some context. I did a type of cyclical ketogenic diet (similar to Slow Carb) about a year or so ago from a book called Man 2.0 Engineering the Alpha by John Romaniello (A friend of Tim’s) and lost about 20-25 lbs and put on some muscle. Now that I’m doing Slow Carb I just ported over my meal plan and macro ratio since Slow Carb does not specify this.

This is the book in case anyone is interested. https://www.amazon.com/Man-2-0-Engineering-Alpha-Muscle-ebook/dp/B0089LOJYU

The thing that you mentioned that I forgot is the veg. I forgot that one of the rules of the Man 2.0 diet is that you don’t count macros in the vegetables you eat. I completely blanked after switching to Slow Carb and left out the veg when I added up my macro ratio so maybe I’m closer than I thought to a more normal ratio. Will Update soon.

I’ll probably just bump up the carbs a bit once I start lifting and supplement with protein powder so I can keep my recipes the same while leveling out my macros a bit.

I checked out your link and some other info on Atkins and mostly the only risk factors I’m finding is eating too much animal fat and I think I’m good in that department. I hope to know more after blood work.

Thanks so much for the response!

I would advise this book (http://www.amazon.com/Man-2-0-Engineering-Alpha-Muscle-ebook/dp/B0089LOJYU/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1437861480&sr=1-1&keywords=engineering+the+alpha)

It is about hormons and which food should you eat to enhance those hormons which help you with your training. Also, it includes a lot of motivation. Great read.
