    I just went through the 10 day induction for carb nite, and noticed I was getting the sweats for the last 2-3 nights like you mention in this interview. This was fully carb depleted. Does this mean I should have had my first carb nite sooner than I did?

    For reference, I started at an even 200 lbs, ~13-15% BF, and on the morning of my first carb nite I was 189 lbs, ~11-13% BF. My food looked like: 250g protein, 100g fat, <30g carbs for the 10 days. I did 4 heavy resistance workouts, 1 sprint day (very 1st day to glycogen deplete), and went for slow 30 min walks every day if possible. Too much activity, not enough fat is my guess? Or should I have just carbed up around day 5-7?

    I NEED my preworkout drinks ( I need the pump and the amp!) before HIIT and lifting. Most of them have 0-2 grams of sugars/carbs..but I know that Keifer has said some artificial sweeteners still stimulate insulin reaction.Which artificial sweetners should I avoid to keep my ‘fat burn’ mode in play? Or am I safe since the nutrition label says the sugar content is so low? Also, what about water flavorings (Crystal light, and the like) effecting insulin when trying to avoid carbs?
