Some think Ketosis is dangerous, but it might just be the most efficient fuel for humans.

Ketogenic diets and fasting have gained a lot of attention and foods like coconut oil, MCT Oil, Grassfed butter and the like have come along for the ride. But some people are still worried about adverse health effects considering this movement runs entirely against conventional health “wisdom.” Our biology might just *prefer* ketones to glucose/carbohydrate.

[BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I’ve been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I’ve already read. It gives you the key points in text or audio form from tons of different non-fiction books. Since I’m always going through so many books to get these done, it’s very useful to get me exposed to more concepts beforehand to know if it’s worth my time to buy and read through that particular book.

  1. Where do you get the 70% fat from? Should I drink a bottle of olive oil and eat cheese all day. Or is most of the 70% of fat coming from my body and all I have to do is eat meats and veggies in a controlled amounts? Someone please give me a clear understanding, I feel like it's a secret, I have watched multiple videos and read online articles on keto but nothing specific regarding 70% of fat required.

  2. Don’t know if anyone will see this, but I’m looking into the ketogenic diet and I’m trying to get all info I can on it, so if anyone has a research study from anyone on the subject could you tell me about it and possibly link it.
    Thank you 🙂

  3. Two questions;

    1) doesn't this diet makes the liver and mostly the kidneys to do too much effort, expecially in the long term?

    2) and most important; is that true that neoglucogenesis can't suffice to manage the entire glucose needs in the body (expecially the central nervous system) in the long run?

  4. For me fasting which i do for religious reasons my brain gets foggy and my immune system gets shot and i get very weak ill and sick. I remain in that state for weeks and takes months to recover. Every time i tried to get into ketosis theough the keto diet i got sick fatigued sluggish unable to function or think and starving. I dont think any of the claims are true based on my personal expereince. Though it may be true for you.

  5. thanks for sharing your amazing work ! Could you study the people who have completely stopped eating dense food and are fed with prana ? I'm serious. It would be very interesting to see what you come up to. Big thanks
