Given that we are looking at fat loss mainly, my actual experience with ketogenic diets (when Lyle's book first came out) kicked ass. I dumped a lot of blubber and, as Ben suggested, my lifts stayed solid or improved...there was a point where that changed, but that was 30# after I started. Plus, it's actualy fast enough (if you are one of those who can do it) that it is quite fun. This is one of Lyle's main points of both his 'crash' diets and keto diet (his crash diets tend to be keto, actualy, he just doesn't mention it as much). The fat comes off quickly, so you appreciate that what you are doing is working, so you are more willing to keep doing it.
