The anabolic diet is designed for bodybuilders to bulk up and stay cut no matter what phase of workout they’re performing. The diet isn’t exclusively for bodybuilders, though. All types of strength-training athletes can benefit from using the anabolic diet, as it places the body into a cyclical, natural anabolic state. This speeds up recovery and reduces the amount of rest needed to progress. However, while the anabolic diet is effective for helping weight trainers of all types pack on lean muscle, the long-term effects of ketonic/anabolic cycling have not been studied. Also, the anabolic diet is not recommended for those who have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, or any other insulin condition. Consult your physician before you undertake any diet program.
There are many things about anabolic steroids we do not know; there have been studies performed but they are quite limited and studies done on doses in the supraphysiological range are even fewer; but it is an important note, some studies have been done using anabolic steroids in the supraphysiological range and the results have been positive in favor of anabolic steroid use; I’m guessing you’ve never heard of these studies on the six o’clock news. The bottom line is anabolic steroids are very powerful hormones, they should only be used responsibly but there is no evidence that they will kill you. This is what we know and to insinuate in any other way is misguided.
I've noticed this approach has worked amazingly for me and I've gotten leaner but remained the same weight. I changed my plan up to have a moderate carb day on my lifting days MWF and noticed my fat loss slowed down. I've found that the extended 4 day low carb period is very important and lets ketosis kick in and do its work. Since I've been making muscle gains I've revamped the lifting protocol to aid me in quite possibly continuing to make gains in lean muscle and lose significant amounts of fat at the same time. I personally wouldn't use the diet to bulk since a majority of the week is focused on losing fat instead of making gains. I start bulking in roughly 4 weeks, I'll see if I have issues with gaining too much fat and will consider bulking on UD.
