The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply] [Last 50 posts]

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.

That's what the ketones are for. Your brain will run on about ~75% ketones, ~25% glucose from gluconeogenesis from amino acids.

Idk but losing weight would improve your hormone and cholesterol regardless which a keto diet would do.

>you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet
>low amount of dietary fiber
False. You can still eat a ton of vegetables. Keto isn't defined by eating high fat, but rather by eating low carb. You still have plenty of options for (essentially) zero carb vegetables.

>Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone
Yes.
>Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine?
Preference. Some people are better able to control their hunger/satiety.

sup /fit/,
I'd like to autoregulate my workouts as much as possible, but don't want to use RPE/RIR methods as I find them to be overly arbitrary and not very effective.

Ideally I'd like to find ways to autoregulate both intensity, repetitions and volume (as per sets volume). How would you do that?

I'm a novice-intermidiate and can train everyday.

auto regulation G 20/10/28(Wed)11:43 No. 36646

Working up to a heavy single is a great method but if you don't lift at that intensity often then your warm ups serve as a good indicator about your lifting ability for the day. Even as simple as a 50% of weight to be lifted for 4-6 reps then 75% predicted weight for 2 reps then 90% for 1. You can then use how those last 2 sets felt to dictate whether you will be lifting as predicted, lifting more or whether you will have to reduce volume for the day as you are feeling fatigued, not as strong etc. Always reduce volume but not intensity.

I guess this problem may be related to lack of hgh in your body. If you seriously consider the opportunity to change your body, maybe even increase power check the article https://hghfor-sale.com/how-to-mix-and-inject-hgh/ and decide is it necessary in your case.

You have mild gyno, start going to the gym and the chest fat should go away. Else, you might need surgery.

I am 5’11” and was 130 pounds in first pic. I started lifting and eating more, and am now 165 (second pic). I feel discouraged though. What I can do improve? I only have dumbbells and no access to a gym.

You should be ablo to lift 140kg if it's given to you at knee levels.
The rest is for looking good like planks, push-ups, chin ups are all about how the muscle is fitting to your body aka don't weight too much exercises

Dietary cholesterol is important for optimal performance. Vegans do not take in any cholesterol through diet. I want to perform optimally, and still be vegan.

It looks subcutaneous so am I ok? 5’6 about 160-180 and 52 percent body fat. I like how it feels like a bag of jello but don’t want to be unhealthy or have people think I look fat

Start training squats, deadlifts and bench press. If you care about male attention, focus mostly on increasing the weight you can lift. Someone can probably give better advice than me.>>29156

No you don't have to share them you can keep them yourself. Nothing in the book's text suggest you have to share with others
