Default Giving the Anabolic Diet+ IF a run

So I decided to give the Anabolic Diet a try combined with my IF protocol. The idea is for 12 days eat a diet of 60% fat, 35% Pro and 5% carbs. basically keeping carbs under 30gms a day. After this 12 day induction period you begin a 36-48 hour "carb load". After the initial load you begin a 5 day low carb ( <30gm) and a 36-48 hour load weekly pattern.I have been reading a ton on it and haven't seen anyone combining it wit IF yet. I like to experiment so I said what the hell.

For the past few days my diet has been:
#1
6 whole eggs cooked in Coconut oil
8oz. ground round
8oz. Raw spinach
4 Fish oils
4 Liver Tabs
Greens Mix/4 tbsp. milled flax

#2 (post workout)
2 scoops whey
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp milled flax
3 fish oils
4 Liver tabs

#3
8 oz. chicken thighs
8 oz raw spinach
3 fish oils
4 liver tabs
1 tbsp natural peanut butter

I am also supplementing with a multi, extra vit C, calcium. L-Tyrosine, and glutamine.

This is actually the simplest diet I have ever eaten, so far I feel pretty damn good. I always knew that I function pretty well WITH carbs and can lose BF while eating a fairly decent amount of carbs, but I though I would try the opposite end of the spectrum and see what happens. When I do the "carb load" I plan on sticking with clean carbs and not going with the free for all like I have read some do, and I will keep it to 1 day instead of two at first to see what happens.

My plan is to maintain my fast up until Sunday morning of next week and then from Sunday morning to Sunday night eat a carb heavy diet from clean sources, (oatmeal, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruits and veggies, and of course some ice cream ,.......). For the load the ratios change to 50-60% carbs, 25-30% fats, and 15-20 % protein.

I am actually eating more calories than usual and aiming to shed the last little bit of BF while maintaining or adding mass and strength. This should be interesting to see what happens. So far I like it, but I'm only 4 days in. we will see.
