Show Notes

Today in episode 137 we're getting real about the ketogenic diet and muscle building. Sure, this diet can be a tool for shredding fat, but when it comes to building up those muscles, there's a bit more to the story.

Carbs are not just comfort food; they're fuel for serious growth. They energize your workouts and are critical in the muscle repair process. So, when you slash the carbs for keto, you might also be sidelining some serious gains.

Your muscles need glycogen, and glycogen comes from carbs. Running on fats alone? You might find yourself hitting a wall when trying to level up your strength. Building muscle isn't just about protein; it's a complex dance of nutrients, timing, and science.
