This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

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

File 14174197602.jpg - (41.30KB , 440x331 , ketone-diet.jpg )

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.

how often do you poop and how are your bowel movements?

Anonymous 15/02/20(Fri)17:04 No. 17561

This is just a fleeting reply, I don't have the necessary amount of concentration at the moment:

Dietary fibre is known to decrease cholesterol (we even know the mechanism behind it), it also gives a better-tolerated consistency and frequency to your bowel movements. Heck, there is quite a lot of research suggesting it decreases the risk of colorectal carcinoma; and the opposite is true for red meat.
Your paragraph proves my point that the brain needs glucose to operate. Gluconeogenesis is the body's way of creating glucose (gluco-neo-genesis), so it can be used by organs (especially the brain and muscles -though via different means) in the fasting-state. There is nothing laughable about this (and I don't like your tone in this sentence either). The liver creates glucose so the brain uses it. Why? Because the brain will have nothing else.
"Fluffy large particle LDL that doesn't damage arteries" there is no consensus on this subject. But I'll give you the benefit of doubt. Even so, what makes pattern A (large fluffy) levels increase? What makes them decrease? Fasting? Diabetes? We can't say for certain at the moment.
If the person indeed does have insulin resistance, then the bad thing to do for them would be to get on a diet they themselves have cooked up (instead of one given by a dietitian).
Although I'm pleased with the insight you've provided, you know that anecdotal evidence is pretty much useless...
Let's keep the discussion going though (I had forgotten I had created this thread)

Hello 7/fit/

I come to you as a refugee. I apologize for necroing the thread but the other /fit/ is anti keto. Here's my question:

Okay keto vets, I get into ketosis about 2 weeks out of the month. I understand the basics about alcohol and ketosis. Thing is I've never personally done it.

I'm currently in ketosis and I know my preferred drink (whiskey) will not kick me out of ketosis, but it will slow the fat burning process due to my body burning the alcohol before the ketones. I know all the alcohol has to be gone first, but how long does this process take? How long would it take for my body to burn say, 5 shots, and return back to burning ketones? Just the 300-500 calories from the whiskey?

Do you think this is more violent sport than rugby or MMA? http://goodmood-gm.com/interesting/calcio-storico-possibly-violent-sport-world/

Anonymous 14/04/09(Wed)01:37 No. 13675

Rugby ain't that violent IMO, and yeah, Calcio Storico is pretty rough. The strange rules of the game are more interesting that it's violence though.

I have a theory that all my ailments like frequently recurring flus, irritable bowel, etc. derive from my tonsils and the swallowing of bacteria that fester in my mouth overnight when I wake up. I have the mouth issue resolved mostly through mouthwash and brushing teeth which I take and do before bed and in the morning, but the tonsils are a problem. I know they are deep pockets with too many folds or something which accumulate debris and pave the way for that awful smell that always lingers in the back of your throat if you open things up a certain way. My bedroom stinks in the morning because of it. It is just foul. And my body must have a sensitive response to the bacteria which the body quickly remove once ingested by fluid-like passing of fecal matter.

How do I dig deep into the tonsils regularly to clean? I know, I know,


is what everyone will give me, but it seems to only scratch a bit of the surface and nothing deep into it. I want to go deep and remove everything to feel alive for once. Is there professional tonsil cleaning offered somewhere that cleans everything?

For the record, I've already noticed that my shit solider by regularly washing out my mouth with bacteria-killing fluid.

"But I have met many more who told that nothing changed or it got worse after the surgery" Yes, yoou are a lucky one. Most people take their tonsiles off and don't get better.
