Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate- protein, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fat rather than carbohydrates. This is simply a low-carb diet. When you hear it, you think you will never get the needed strength with this diet. But that’s not true. If you have a good strategy, you can lose weight and become stronger.
Change the way of training you followed before. The old system will not work now. The low-carb diet is quite exhausting and difficult for our bodies, so you might not have so much energy as you had before. If you start your diet from Monday, then do the hardest trainings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and then keep a lower intensity.
If you change your body so fast, it doesn’t mean you are becoming weaker. If you carried a lot of fat before and relied on girth to shorten the range of motion with the main lifts – the bench press, squat, and deadlift, keeping a low-carb diet you should find another way.
Stay more upright, use your hips, and push your knees out while lifting and you can make it possible.
When you keep ultra-low-carb diet, you don’t need to do all these crazy lifts with bands and chains. Just focus on the basics and keep training.
To get more strength, you can also drink pre- and post- workout shakes.
