New study re: Whole Milk vs Fat free

I would try some rice milk if I were you.

My only hesitation with a straight substitution is that you won't be getting any protein from the rice mlik. Be sure you've got an adequate source of complete protein from elsewhere. A typical cup of milk has between 7-9g of protein, whereas a cup of rice or almond milk has less than 1 unless it's been added in (which seems highly unlikely since the point with these is to provide an additive free alternative).

My go-to for milk is actually Natrel Lactose Free. Their entire line (from skim to 3.25) has between 11 and 12g of protein per serving. Insanely good for a non-protein shake beverage.

weight lifting and Low Carb????
One more resource you might find useful is the ketogains subreddit. It's devoted specifically to building or preserving muscle on a ketogenic diet.

Some interesting concepts that you'll become familiar with if you spend some time there:

- skd: standard ketogenic diet
- tkd: targetd ketogenic diet
- ckd: cyclic ketogenic diet

TKD is basically what you suggest, upping your carbs pre/post workout for either a boost in energy to supply your workout, and CKD is more of a weekly re-feed. They're both different approaches to helping manage energy levels while on a keto diet. Check out the subreddit if you're interested. Some good info in there.

Off topic, but does your Duc know you're cheating with a KTM? Harsh.

weight lifting and Low Carb????
Are you trying to lose weight or put on muscle? You can't do both at the same time unless you're totally untrained, and that won't continue after a few months either.

If you're trying to build muscle, a caloric surplus with a healthy dose of carbs is optimal. If you're trying to lose, well, you can do low carb if it helps you stay satiated. In both scenarios you absolutely want to keep up the protein (min. 1g/kg bodyweight, but more optimally 2g/kg).

Brief Tips On Your Diet
All good, except that there are no significant metabolic boosts to be found by taking in regular food. Caffeine is an exception and even that effect is slight.

Also non-nutritive sweetened beverages help more than just water alone with body composition. So if you like your diet sodas and teas, have at 'em.
