CKD without upper body?
 
So, I've had major success on CKD in the past.I love the diet program. I need to shred some fat, would love to do CKD, but my shoulder is going to be out of commission for a few months and I can only do selective core and lower body workouts. With that in mind, and that I cannot deplete the glycogen in my arms, chest, or back, do you think CKD would still be effective? I cannot deny that I do best on rigid programs like CKD. The strict schedule and diet rules help me focus and the carb load allows me to "cheat" a little. But if it is all a wash without the upper body, I guess I can keep doing what I am doing, which is a laid back TKD based approach.

If it’s an injury you need plenty of calories and carbs for recovery right now. So skip the CKD and diet, just eat at maintenance until you’re better.

I’ve heard similar, but can’t locate. Can you please cite your source that indicates the amount one should eat and what the composition of their diet should look like.

That could potentially help a number of viewers. Thanks.

Agreed. I don't think calories will affect tendon recovery. That's just my assumption.

I also just got over a broken foot, so I haven't been lifting at all for months. It just feels great to be working out at all, but I just love CKD. I won a bb.com transformation challenge years back doing it. It just works for me, but I don't want to waste my time if not depleting the upper body renders it pointless. Which I could logically see, but I'm not certain.

Both of you should buy and read Lyle's newest book " Optimal nutrition for injury recovery".
