Hollywood Keto Weight Loss For a bodybuilder, strength athlete or someone wanting to optimize lean mass and size, it is a mistake. Here's why. "Hydrate" literally means "with water". Carbo- hydrates bind with water molecules and if carbohydrate intake is sufficient they will carry the actual into the muscle cell- (a "volumizing" effect) making them full and round. Insufficient carbohydrates will leave you with smooth, smaller and flat muscular tissue. -Quoting- paraphrasing really, here from "Heavy Duty Journal" by Mr. Universe Mike Mentzer- the first Hollywood Keto man to ever acquire a perfect 300 score in international competition on contest preparation and nutrition.
