Is It Bad For The Body To Jump Between Ketosis And Glucose?

I would not use that particular cycle, but think it would be hard to make a scientific argument that the occasional indulgence is “bad” - at least after the initial adaptation period. I’d do 4 weeks on, then maybe a meal/day or two off. That’s what we initially committed to. However, we wound up not wanting to do that indulgence we had scheduled for a few months. Then when we did, felt pretty terrible. We often will “relax” the diet when we travel, but it’s not really great-feeling. It gets a lot easier to transition back and forth as you get some practice at it, and some would say that doing it cyclically (seasonally) is more similar to what would have happened in primitive man (carbs were only available to most cultures for part of the year). But YMMV. Continue reading >>

    Having bad breath is kind of like getting toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your foot: usually harmless, but so awkward that nobody will tell you about it. At the microbial level, bad breath happens when the naturally occurring bacteria in our mouths break down

    This is a really interesting question. Let me start you off with a fun fact. If you rub raw onions on someone’s feet then 10 minutes later they will have the taste of onions in their mouth and have onion breath.
    The reason is that the onion smell gets into their blood and then travels around the body.
    So basically the moral of the story is that your breath is a combination of what you just ate and internal sources. These include
    Things that get into blood (eg onion or alcohol and th)

    Bacteria in your mouth.

    The morning breath thing comes mostly from bacteria on the tongue, which is why you can buy a tongue brush as well as a toothbrush.

    What have we eaten before starvation ,The food particles of that got stucked in our teeth and between cheeck and gum.after a couple of time, bacteria starts fermentation on it. in particular, food particles start rottening. so as we know every rottening substance smells bad because of they evolve bad smelling gas.thats why our mouth smells bad after long starvation.

During this process, your body creates incompletely burned bypro ...

    There are no doubt advantages to intermittent fasting, but I wouldn't recommend it while you're on a low carb diet. When your body can't use carbohydrates to obtain energy it will switch to use other components in your body. You'll be happy to see any fat go, but unfortunately the proteins that make up your muscles aren't safe from being used. Not to mention by fasting while you're already on a high-demand diet, your body will be entirely out of ...

  • Why Is Ketosis Bad For Kidneys

    I love what nutritional ketosis does for me, but I would not recommend my 16 year old self to undertake it. There are a few reasons. The biggest one is that at that age, I really didn't understand my body well at all. I had little awareness of hunger vs thirst, good pain vs bad pain from working out, and determining what my personal physical and mental limits were. Please don't misunderstand, I'm not saying "you're a silly teenager who knows noth ...
