More Carb Nite and Carb Backloading Tips Part 6

In an effort to stay up to date with all of Kiefer’s prolific work, here is the next series of notes I’ve taken. This is the fourth edition of my Kiefer notes.  Again some of these are from his own site, Body.io and some from when he appears as a guest on other podcasts.

For those that don’t know, Kiefer is the author of both The Carb Nite Solution and Carb Back-Loading, both ways of eating that I’ve been playing around with recently.  Here is the official link to all of his guest appearances.

Carb Back-Loading and Cholesterol

After I reached the 8 week mark of my Carb Back-Loading experiment, I planned to draw a series of blood tests to see where things stood compared to my most recent set of labs which were drawn after doing Carb Nite for 10 weeks.

If you’ve been following my cholesterol adventures at all, you’ll know that I’ve been dealing with high cholesterol these past few years when I switched to various forms of high fat low carb diets.  More specifically my LDL-C and LDL-P have risen with my dietary changes and I’ve been trying to see what, if anything, I can do to get those numbers under control.… Read More

The Benefits of Incremental Carb Introduction

SarahAbsThis is a post written by Sarah Strange, one of the  trainers at Robb Wolf’s Norcal Strength and Conditioning gym detailing her initial love affair with going low carb and then the subsequent struggles she encountered after going low carb for too long.  She even had some unsuccessful trials with Carb Nite and Carb-Backloading which didn’t seem to help her.

The thing that finally worked for her was:

So what am I trying to say with all this? I’m saying that for any of you out there struggling to reintroduce carbs and continually hitting the wall, that carefully measured, small incremental increases a week might just set you free.

Carb Back-Loading Pearls and Criticism

CBLCarb Back-Loading Pearls and Criticism

Pearls

Listened to the most recent podcast with Kiefer on the Optimal Health Show with a fantastic summary of Carb Back-Loading and a great discussion on the science behind it with info that wasn’t included in the book itself.

Some of the pearls and nuggets dropped:

  • When keeping insulin at low levels in the first half of the day, this activates the enzyme hormone sensitive lipase in fat cells which allows them to release more fat and deactivates the enzyme lipoprotein lipase which prevents fat cells from storing fat.  I know he’s referenced these enzymes in both Carb Nite and Carb Back-Loading but never really mentioned their names.

Gut Shield: Followup uBiome After 30 Days

When Kiefer’s Gut Shield was first released I was initially skeptical given his previous stance on the microbiome, namely that if you become healthy, your gut flora will in turn become healthy.  If you are unhealthy, then your gut flora will be unhealthy.  Eating low carb and Carb Nite will make you healthier and in turn make your gut healthier.  

He didn’t think there was any need to do anything other than eating low carb and Carb Nite… and next he’s marketing a prebiotic and probiotic.

Despite my skepticism, since I really liked his work with Carb Nite and Carb Backloading I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt and try this product out for myself.… Read More
