Difference Between Keto And Fat Adaptation

What is the difference between Ketosis and Ketoacidosis, Keto adaption and Fat adaption and something I refer to as metabolic flexibility? So let’s start with the difference between Ketosis and Ketoacidosis. Wikipedia says Ketosis is a metabolic state in which most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides most of the energy. Dr Peter Attia of Eating Acedemy says – Ketosis is a state, achieved through significant reduction of carbohydrate intake (typically to less than 50 grams per day), at which point the body makes a fundamental change from relying on glycogen as its main source of energy to relying on fat as the primary source of energy. In particular, the brain shifts from being entirely dependent on glucose, to being primarily dependent on beta-hydroxybutyrate – a so-called “ketone body.” Ketone bodies are chemical structures made by the liver (also somewhat in the kidney) out of fatty acids, primarily. Ketosis is simply the mechanism in which the body begins to burn fat for fuel by producing ketones in the liver rather than glucose. This happens when carbohydrate/glucose Continue reading >>

    For commercial aircraft: mountain wave, changing winds, slow aircraft or pilot response to airspeed fluctuations. It is not necessarily even a serious inspection depending on the amount the limit is exceeded. Exceeding airframe speed limits is rarely the real cause of aircraft incidents.

    I just add one scenario: cruising at maximum operating mach number you get a horizontal windshear and you will momentarily exceed that limit. This is common enough to prompt us to set overspeed warning at a few knots above mmo. Traversing the jet steam or entering strong frontal systems can lead to significant headwind changes.

    Recover from a stall or spin
    Stall or spin will not induct an aircraft to exceed speed limit. With a suitable height, the aircraft is available to spin for a very long time until you intend to recover. In example, you can start to recover above 5000ft so that you will have more time and distance to the ground. In the recovery process, you have to pitch your nose down while spinning adjacent to all and singular three axis, your airspeed will not increase. However, in that point you wish to recover from a stall, an inadequate recovery is taking a risk to exceed the never exceed speed (Vne).
    Spiral dive
    In a spiral dive without adjusting the throttle, the aircraft is pointed into the relative wind, aircraft nose is pitching down and it is in a descending turn. This situation is the phrase where things get complicated. The aircraft will get tighter turns as the nose is dropping lower, speed of the aircraft will go higher. If this situation prolonged, you will exceed the never exceed speed (Vne) and you will have structural damage to your aircraft. You might end up having a land or sea impact if you have insufficient time or height to recover. When you are conducting a coordinated turn, if you don't look out the window or use the instruments, you will not figure out that you are turning, descending or accelerating and that may lead to a spiral dive.
