  • Anyone on a Keto diet? I'll probably die, but oh well.

    I did it once years ago and saw results that made me think I was going crazy. Stopped after I had a really strange episode after ruck marching outside for 2 hours and when I made it back to the house I had some sort of really weird collapse/seizure/something that I've never had before and nothing close to since. I stopped and went back to a regular diet as I always felt a little different on keto and the episode I had just felt like it somehow had something to do with it.

    Anyone do it? I have my macros all mapped out already and am trying to find sites where you can pretty much get a meal plan for 1, 2+ weeks at a time for your parameters (2200 cals, 165 protein, 25 carb, 160 fat) and just shop, cook and be done. Finding recipes and trying to mix/match them to make daily meals that fit into my parameters is what makes me stop doing shit like this.

        I have a a buddy who refers to his Palolithic-diet. Think hunter and gather. He doesn't eat bread/pizza, stays away from processed. I don't think his body type has changed since high school.
        Less than 5% fat, more like 3%.

        I think I tested around 6-7% in high school.

        More like 10-12% now. Happy as a clam and still cold in shoulder seasons.

        I think neanderthal, tomatoes/tamoto!

          That statement is FALSE. Carbs are NOT an essential nutrient.

          Your body can run on glucose or ketones. Carbs converts to glucose in the blood. Carbs are why there is an epidemic of diabetes.

          Fat metabolizes to ketones. Your body can run fine on ketones and actually does better with distance activities, diving, and intellectual activities when running on ketones.

          FYI, excess protein turns into glucose in the blood.

            lost fat, however I got off because my labs were messed up. It seems to be common for a keto diet to greatly suppress your test levels while promoting estrogen
            You were not fat adapted yet. It takes some people 2 weeks. It takes others 3 months. To get rid of the keto flu, drink more fluids and consume more salt.

            As for the estrogen, were you eating tofu? Tofu will make your estrogen levels increase, and the estrogen will help you retain body fat. Some diet food, huh?

              Wrong, people's low will power, glutinous lifestyles, lack of knowledge and exercise is why there is an epidemic of diabetes.

              You are correct, carbs are a non essential nutrient. I am simply saying that carbs aren't bad and your body is built to digest and use them as fuel. If you abuse them, like anything else in life they become bad.

              FYI, too much fat and protein is bad for you too.

              As I said earlier, if it's your thing then go for it but it's certainly not necessary to get good healthy results and some people are not going to do well with it.

              For me? I'm having pizza tonight. And I'm pretty sure it's not going to give me diabetes.

                no my diet consisted of meats and fats.
                absolutely no tofu

                I tried keto Keri just to try it, I've gotten much better results off carb cycling

                    Your body needs fuel to survive. You can get that fuel by way of carbs or fat. Once you quit the carbs, you have to eat fat. It takes about two weeks for your body to go into ketosis. Once that happens, you have to eat fat in order to generate energy. Those fats can come from animals or vegetables. Coconut oil, olive oil, butter.... etc. All of those will provide the energy you need. Low carb low fat is a recipe for feeling crappy.

                        I did keto while doing light workouts 3x a week and dropped nearly 40lbs. I've since gained 20lbs back (over a 2 year period). Looking back it was something that worked for me but wasn't anything sustainable very long term. I was very strict while i was on it for nearly 6 months and then just hopped off and went back to eating like i did before. I should have stuck with working out but stopped that as well. I used http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/menu-plans-new which was good for me because it had meal plans and what to get from the store. Not something i would recommend long term though.
