    Ketogenic diets have always been thought of as 'protein sparing' because ketones spare blood glucose which will reduce gluconeogenesis (conversion of amino acids to glucose) and ketones can be used as fuel, however ketones can only be used by aerobic metabolism. Weightlifting is quite anaerobic and studies have shown performance is very closely correlated to levels of muscle glycogen & glucose availability. Is keto a good way to lose fat very quickly? yes. But if you give yourself ample time... why not have carbs? They are not evil and are quite useful. Also keto diets will make it more difficult to fill out when it comes time to do so, it takes weeks to adapt to a ketogenic diet, so when you come off of keto it will take weeks to adapt to carbohydrates back in the diet and so if you are trying to carb up a few days before the show after you did keto for 12 + weeks I'm afraid you will have very little idea what to expect as you will essentially be challenging your body with something it isn't accustomed to. If you choose to do a ketogenic diet and not re-introduce carbohydrates, I would do a moderate protein/fat load and only increase carbs very slightly.

              guess bcaa's are out for me, that would run me like 60 dollars a month on top of food and my foundation supplements (whey,creatine,multi,antioxidants and fishoil)

                You wouldn't use more than the 345g size per month.

                    you could do 5g preworkout & 10g post and still get decent results

                        Go to Dave's thread in the Staff and pros section. I've been doing the Palumbo diet for a few months now and have had great results, but that's just me. I trust Layne's judgement and knowledge and I don't think anyone could ever be faulted for taking his advice, and if I hadn't already started Palumbo's diet I would have gone with Layne's pre-contest diet instead; I think it's a bad idea to change things up mid-prep though so I'm sticking to this to contest day.

                          some bullshit about the high school saying bodybuilding was 'inappropriate' for the high school. Never mind that it promotes health and fitness in a country where 1/3 of high schoolers are obese, not to mention it's a drug free show.

                          fucking hypocrites is what it is

                            Well, to be fair, i can see the argument that it might not be a good idea to expose those impressionable kids to a bunch of juiced out freaks like you guys

                                I know Eric is pretty bummed, he has been dieting hard. Will they try another venue this year or next?
