Q: I am on a low carb diet and I have lost 20 lbs., but I have also lost a lot of strength. What do I do?

A: If you are on a low carb diet be sure to up your carbs every third or fourth day. This replenishes your glycogen stores for more energy, keeps the metabolism racing and keeps you sane. Up your protein to 25- 100 grams per day. When on a low carb diet, I suggest at least 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight. This helps preserve muscle. I would also add glutamine to my supplementation, which has an anti-catabolic effect- muscle sparing. (I use effervescent glutamine by MHP for maximum absorption.) Then last add some good fats to your diet like natural peanut butter, nut, flax oil, or essential fatty acids.
