comment What different is going on in the initial stage of a cyclic ketogenic diet than after each 'carb up' weekend?
I've answered this before. But it depends on how you got your food. If you had highly processed sources of protein (protein drinks, for example) as your main source of nutrition, then two weeks of solid food (but still ketogenic) will help the stomach be ready for real food again. Other than that, 2 weeks bringing carbs back on line (probably best to spike it in one meal) will help the body deal with carbs appropriately again.

Your body adapts to what you ask it to do. The re-carb does keep the metabolism from fully adjusting to the level it would on full ketosis, which works to your advantage. Excess energy (carbs/fat) will be put back in your fat cells. The ketosis is a good tool for remaining in a fat burning state most of the time.

comment Weighlifting shoes for a beginner
As long as it has a non-slip sole. Many slippers don't provide any grip on smooth surfaces. If the lifting floor is rubber, you should be OK.

comment Toning/Cutting while doing Stronglifts(5x5)
I ate fairly moderately. I think on average between 2100 Cal and 2400 Cal depending on if it was a training day or not.

Too many to list. Try a deadlift widowmaker, or very heavy triples.

comment How do I use bumper plates?
I might add, that you do need a good quality bar designed to take the stress of dropping the weights without bending.
