What is this thing? Is it a certain type of diet or something?
Refers to changes the body goes through when deprived of carbs.
Not all who diet low carb do that but it cuts weight fast and you can eat all the fats you want.
Google ketoacidosis but the spelling may be wrong.
let me GTFY:
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, if little carbohydrate remains in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures. Around half of children and young people with epilepsy who have tried some form of this diet saw the number of seizures drop by at least half, and the effect persists even after discontinuing the diet. Some evidence indicates that adults with epilepsy may benefit from the diet, and that a less strict regimen, such as a modified Atkins diet, is similarly effective. Potential side effects may include constipation, high cholesterol, growth slowing, acidosis, and kidney stones.
I asked because I was at a bookstore looking for a book by or about Tony Bourdain and I saw an entire section of Keto related books.
Basically it’s a medical intervention that has been adapted to a daily diet.
It’s a drastic metabolic shift, and it does shed weight fast. But a return to glucose as primary energy source frequently boomerangs it back even faster.
Also, watch out for those triglycerides. Get a lipid panel maybe every six months.
scientifick PROOF that it doesn't work from this peer reviewed study
A fad. A con. An unhealthy diet.
Take your pick.
I follow a low carb diet to cut my chances of type 2 diabetes .It works .I have lost weight and my blood sugar counts is OK now .I could go full KETO and have no carbs at all which may be even better.I am following Dr's orders and am checked out .I did lose weight with the similar Atkins diet but got sick of it .It did work well though .
Yup it’s this decades adkins
And next year another diet with pop up
I wonder how much someone would pay me to tell them all it takes is a balanced diet (diet meaning our everyday sustenance) and exercise
I’ve noticed a lot of people that do these “healthy diets” never incorporate the right exercises
Yeah, but it is too easy to take the easy way ...
An excuse to eat a lot of bacon and to put butter in your coffee.
Everyone knows calorie deficit works but lack the backbone to adhere to it, and wants some trick like 'avoid foods with the same letter in it as the day of the week'
Identical twins aside, we are all unique in our dna. Even twins follow different paths and will have different gut bacteria, so one size cannot fit all
Again: we all know what is healthy and unhealthy. 12 beers and a deep fried pizza is not complex to figure out
So instead of looking at one of those books in the store, you decided to ask on a guitar forum?
You might want to research that better... It is not unhealthy. I did it for more than a year. There are many positives in this and it works.
What is unhealthy and leads to type 2 diabetes is processed carbs and sugars none of which occur naturally.
Ketosis that @blowtorch filled in on is the shall we say healthy degree in a medical situation where ketoacidosis that I mentioned prior is what happens if pushed too far and can be deadly.
I think the main point of all the keto styled diets is that formerly everyone assumed fat was fattening but that turned out to be false.
So maybe it’s more correct to call low fat diets for weight loss “fads”.
Then though comes the health problems caused by unhealthy fats often added in trendy diets like hmmm, what might those be?
A year or so ago I finally got the gut overhang after 59 years of flat abdomen.
Eliminated carbs from dinner, eliminated carb snacking, and my belt buckle is visible again.
On and off refined sugars generally due to Halloween through Christmas treats everywhere.
Off all candy again but have one or two pieces of toast with jam at night.
Well, the answer was bound to be more entertaining here...
..... and you'll get a broad range of biased opinions.
There will definitely be an opinion to suit your bias here.
" ... and haven't lost no weight".
That means you lost weight. You may be onto something here.
