A Comprehensive Guide To The Vegan Ketogenic Diet

Animal suffering, climate change, and health are three vitally important issues that can all be addressed with one solution — the vegan diet. At least, this is the idea that many health documentaries promote, however, the truth is much more nuanced. For example, some people have much better health when they go low-carb and eat some animal products, while others feel much better on a high-carb vegan diet. A vegan diet is not the best diet for every health issue either. For example, people with conditions like obesity, type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy can be helped tremendously by the ketogenic diet, while a vegan diet doesn’t help nearly as much. Does this mean that vegans should forget about ethical concerns and swallow down animal products like a supplement? Not at all. So, what do you are supposed to do if a moderate to high-carb vegan diet doesn’t work for you and a standard ketogenic diet may be what you need, but it contains too many animal products? Combine the two. An Overview of The Vegan Ketogenic Diet The Vegan ketogenic diet is one of the most restrictive diets, but it is possible to pull it off while main Continue reading >>

    Does anyone know about the metabolic state of of other hunting carnivores such as wolves, lions, etc.? Do they stay in ketosis all the time? I know their pattern is to hunt, eat a ton of fat and protein, then rest and fast for several days before hunting again. I imagine they get away with the fasting and maintain their weight by gorging on so much protein that it converts to blood sugar and they can restore the fat they lost. Does this take them out of ketosis and they need to then re-adapt every week? Do they also consume the fermented stomach contents of the kill? Is it the lucky alpha who gets the liver first who is best able to maintain their weight?

    No. They do not state on ketosis all the time. it depends on what kind of animal. From the land strict carnivores as cats cats they eat large amounts of protein (50-60% of calories in the diet) and their liver efficiently, quickly and without problem (as opposed to human) is cleaved protein to glucose. They do not eat fatty. Often, big cats leave part of organs, bone marrow and fat for scavengers such as hyenas. Dogs are already really omnivores and effectively operate on 40% protein and 60% fat in calories.
    I do not know the proportion of other predators such as sperm whales and seals.
    It seems to me that the cow is on ketosis much more than cats. In her share of the energy of carbohydrates is very small as long feed on naturally of course.
