Building muscle on the Keto Diet: Is it possible?
When you follow the Keto Diet, you can’t eat many of the foods that are commonly used as muscle-building supplements. This is because many of these foods are high in carbohydrates, which is why they are not a feasible option on the Keto Diet. However, there are some natural and effective ways to build muscle on the Keto Diet. Though it will take dedication and perseverance, building muscle on the Keto Diet isn’t impossible.
Reducing your daily carbohydrate intake will help you lose weight more quickly and efficiently; however, that doesn’t mean that you cannot build muscle while staying with in the guidelines of the diet. If you have access to enough protein and other nutrients from fats and carbs that aren’t coming from sources like sugar or flour, then it is possible for you to build and maintain lean body mass on Keto.

What does the Keto Diet look like?
The ketogenic diet is a powerful way to lose weight, reduce your risk of diabetes, and improve your health. However, this diet requires you to be very strict and disciplined in your eating habits. It also requires a great deal of education and self-monitoring to ensure that you’re following the diet correctly. For these reasons, the ketogenic diet is not for everyone. However, if you are committed to following a high-fat, low-carb diet, it can be very rewarding. Check out the video below to get an idea of what I eat post workout.
