    Quick background.

    Age: 28
    Gender: Male
    Weight: 181lb (Jan6/17)
    Body Fat: 13.2%

    I have been following a ketogenic diet for quite some time (approximately from May) having lost close to 40lbs during that time. I read CBL awhile back, but never really experienced with it. Now that my weight and BF% are down, I want to really try and incorporate this type of approach. I currently train 3-4x a week, and work shift work (615am-345pm; 545pm-415am) which switches every 2 weeks.

    So as you can see, my sleep schedule changes every two weeks, and my meal timing is different as well. The biggest thing, my training usually stays between (1pm-7pm).

    Current macro breakdown on NON training days is 171P/30-50C/130F (approx 2000 calories)

    On training days, I don’t know how to work this out. Looking for a bit of direction on Fat Intake and amount of Carbs. Assuming my Protein stays the same, do I bring Carbs up to a given number and go from there depending how I look and perform? Do I need to go back up to maintenance with the calorie difference coming from Carbs? Or do I shoot for a surplus? How much Fat should I consume on backload days, or does it matter? If I train 3-4x a week, should I be backloading after every training session?

    A lot of questions, but I hope I supplied the required information to assist in helping me.

    Thanks in advance,
