The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply]

Hey /fit/,
After reading up on the ketogenic diet, I've come up with a couple of questions and qualms about it.
I know a couple of you here are firm adherents to the keto diet, so can you explain these please?

1- The brain works on glucose, and will have no substitute. Your body metabolizes the fats into ketone bodies, which can cause ketoacidosis if unmonitored. This state of constant mild hypoglycemia, I'm sure, leads to defects in mental function (named the "keto-mind-fog"). This is not as unsignificant as websites would have you believe, such a mind-fog would be devastating for people whose jobs require high mental output.

2- A high-fat diet means chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, and HDL; bubbles of lipids and lipoproteins in your bloodstream, transporting the fuel to wherever it is needed. The problem is, a high LDL amount is linked and causative with vascular diseases like atherosclerosis. Conversely, a high HDL is linked with a reduction in such diseases. The function of HDL is to bring fats back to the liver to be metabolized during the fasting/hunger state. Does the (presumed) increase in HDL make up for the increase in LDL? Is it even safe to have so much lipids in the bloodstream to begin with? A high fat diet increases the expression of inflammatory mediators, which leads to all sorts of health problems, and also causes insulin resistance (the pivotal point of developing metabolic syndrome).

3- Besides supplements, you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet, like minerals, folic acid, fat-burning phytochemicals like adiponectin. Also you consume a low amount of dietary fibre. Diets rich in fibre have been shown to reduce the risks of breast and colonic cancer. While red meat (especially the processed kind) has been shown to do the opposite. Is this trade-off for better physique/weight loss favorable?

4- Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone (unless they have a medical condition - though I cannot think of any). Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine? It might be useful from a public health perspective to promote this in countries like the US where people drink sugary "soda"s to oblivion, but the Mediterranean diet provides a much better (though perhaps not as efficient) alternative in terms of overall nutrition. Wouldn't it be better to remove simple carbohydrates (like potato starch or simply sugar in the form of sweets, chocolate bars, etc.) from the diet in such countries?

Please don't get angry with me, I'm just trying to find out if there is something I've missed.

>Contrary to popular belief, consuming a higher amount of fat (about 35 per cent of energy) is associated with a lower risk of death compared to lower intakes. However, a diet high in carbohydrates (of more than 60 per cent of energy) is related to higher mortality, although not with the risk of cardiovascular disease.
>The research on dietary fats found that they are not associated with major cardiovascular disease, but higher fat consumption was associated with lower mortality; this was seen for all major types of fats (saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and mono unsaturated fats), with saturated fats being associated with lower stroke risk. The researchers point out that, while this may appear surprising to some, these new results are consistent with several observational studies and randomized controlled trials conducted in Western countries during the last two decades.
>The large new study, when viewed in the context of most previous studies, questions the conventional beliefs about dietary fats and clinical outcomes, says Mahshid Dehghan, the lead author for the study and an investigator at PHRI.

So I have finally hit that point in my life, (almost 30) where I want to finally try to get myself in shape. I'm not worried about bodybuilding to get massive gains. I just want to feel healthier and lose some of this chub I have.

What's the best tips someone could offer me to get me started and to stick with a routine.

I'd like to honestly lose about 20 to 25 pounds.

If you have a smartphone use the MyFitnessPal App. Record your meals, increase your activity, and start eating better.

Totally get a scale and my fitness pal.

Micronutrition is the key to fight hunger. Either you get a balanced diet OR you take supplements.

I have protein powder with all that stuff added and it totally killed my hunger cravings. Naturally without any effort my first meal is at like 5 o clock. Every night 45 min before going to bed I take 2 scoops and the next day is easy.

Also a shake is perfect against hunger. So when I try to diet extreme and my hunger is killing me I just eat a protein shake and it's over.

Gym - body building feels awesome. I like the muscle stimulation feel, I like the gym I am there with 2 friends and no one wants to be the one who skips a training.

The first 6 months it's hella easy to build muscle and lose fat. While training seeing myself with a pump just motivates me more.

If you can't stick with a diet/gym - build discipline first.

Can i survive on no food and only water and vitamin suppliments? Im a fatass so i dont think my body will start eating the muscle and vitals any time soon, i also started running in the morning and at night, i cant hit the gym yet so anything else i can do at home exept running

Surviving and being healthy/feeling well are two different things, but I guess it would work. I have a feeling your body dislikes not actually processing nutrients and stuff though.

> anything else i can do at home exept running
Yeah, a lot actually. Even without weights.

Just get a small mat if you want a better surface than your floor.
Pushups and squats, situps and all things targeting big muscle groups is good to begin with.
Stretching (major muscles) is nice if you don't want stiffies in all the wrong places, too.
