The ketogenic diet is very effective in helping people lose body fat. However, if you’re using CKD, or the cyclical ketogenic diet, you’ll want to include some simple supplements to maintain your muscle mass, facilitate the fat-burning process, and maintain your health during this stressful period.
Creatine is a supplement that is highly effective even when used in a low-carb, high-protein setting. Supplemental creatine keeps your body’s creatine levels slightly elevated, forcing your muscle tissue to retain additional water. This leads to bigger, fuller, rounder muscles that are capable of moving more weight in the gym. Over time, added movement equals new muscle, even in a keto setting! So keep your dose of creatine down: 10 grams per day should do the trick. You should definitely continue to enjoy the very beneficial nature of creatine.
The ECA stack, or a combination of ephedrine 25mg, caffeine 200mg, and aspirin 250mg, is very often used during a CKD diet to regain some of the body fat by targeting multiple processes within the body. ACE slightly raises body temperature. Appetite is suppressed. The metabolism is stimulated. Users often see their abs bulge and veins become visible with each passing day. Add the nature of the Keto diet, with its water and fat, and you have a recipe for successful fat burning! ECA should be used 3 days in a row, 1 day off for best results and to avoid caffeine addiction.
Keep a close eye on the color and odor of your urine when using this diet and supplements. Your body will be under a great deal of stress, particularly your kidneys! If you have a family history of kidney disease, or have abused supplements in the past, the combination of the ketogenic diet and supplements may not be ideal for you.
If you are following a ketogenic diet, you should consume a large amount of water every day, up to two gallons! Each of the 3 factors above: the ketogenic diet, creatine, and ACE supplementation require an additional amount of water each day outside of your daily needs.
You should always check with your doctor before diving into a ketogenic diet. Completing a blood panel, just as you would before going on a steroid cycle, is also a very good idea. This is not your typical diet where you cut a little fat from your daily intake and lose a few pounds. The ketogenic diet is used by the world’s top professionals to achieve incredible shape, and you can use it too, as long as you follow careful diet and supplementation.
