Will i lose muscle on a low-carb or Ketogenic diet?
One concern some people have with starting on a ketogenic diet is whether or not they will lose muscle or lean-muscle mass on a low-carb or ketogenic diet. It’s a question that gets debated quite a bit in on-line bodybuilding forums with a lot of “bro-science” stating that carbohydrates are needed for building muscle and as a result, a low-carb diet will result in poor muscle growth or even muscle-wasting.
However, as long as you are eating enough protein, you should be able to maintain and even gain muscle on a low-carb, ketogenic diet.
