What is a Nutritional Ketosis Diet? []

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. This elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood is a state known as ketosis.

Weight Lifting Month 2

If you missed the first months results and my background in weight lifting the post can be found here.
I continue to increase both my reps and weights. Some highlights from the last few weeks are:

600 reps in 25 min for my back, bi, and shoulder day.
Pyramids on leg day finishing with 600 lb leg press for 10 reps.

My trainer is trying to create muscle confusion by frequently varying the weights, reps, and order. This makes it difficult to directly compare certain exercises from week to week. He severely limits the frequency of dead lifts and squats citing that it takes at least 2 weeks to recover from them. They are my favorite so I wish I could do them more often.

Rigorous scientific method has been defeated by the capricious nature of life. I wanted to use the same camera, lighting, poses, and photographer, but the camera breaking was the first thing to go wrong.
None the less I've done the best I can.

To be honest I'm very embarrassed by these pictures. My mental image of a beautiful body is firmly rooted in a distance running perspective.


I have been able to keep my measurements scientifically rigorous.

I'm not exactly sure what to make of the numbers and pictures. Waist to hip ratio, and weight indicated a lower BF% from last month but still worse than at the start. Biceps when down in size despite increasing my 20 rep weight by 10 lbs. Clearly the pictures show muscle and positional a symmetries. I've had these for a long long time and I hope that weight lifting will help to balance everything out. Here is a picture from this time last year 12/5/13:
