What Is The Science Behind The Ketogenic Diet?

There is a lot of science behind it. This article details 23 peer reviewed studies of it. I’ll break down some of the science behind the diet: Insulin is the primary hormone driving fat burning and fat storage. When the body has high levels of insulin, the tendency is to store things as fat. So, in order to lose weight you want to lower levels of insulin in the body. Low calorie diets also lower insulin, but the ketogenic diet does it simply by the macronutrient content of the diet. The biggest driver of insulin are carbohydrates. By dramatically reducing carbohydrates the body needs to produce less insulin to move the glucose they produce into cells in the body. Fats have almost no insulin impact. By increasing fats in the diet and substituting them for carbohydrates and proteins, you eat without causing great insulin spikes. Ketones Ketones are not some dangerous substance in the body. They are a natural part of human metabolism and everybody has circulating levels of ketones. The key here is again the hormone insulin. Higher levels of insulin mean fewer ketones in the body. The reason non-diabetic people on a ketogenic diet do not get ketoacidosis is that they still have adequ Continue reading >>

    Ketones are produced when the body has to use fats for energy. ketones and Beta Hydroxy Butyric acid are byproducts. You, as a type 1 diabetic take insulin more than once a day because your pancreas is weak from a virus or you have an autoimmune antibody destroying your natural insulin. Either way, you are not an UNDIAGNOSED diabetic who has never had an insulin shot, and even though your sugar was very high, you took insulin and the body will always utilize glucose before it uses fats and proteins for energy. AND THAT IS WHY I THINK IT IS POSSIBLE IN YOUR CASE.

    I am high frequently - getting much better though, go me - I would also dump ketones, when I felt like checking them, but would also often not dump them as often as i would think for being as high as I was. I'd be 400+ and have none or very low ketones.

Can People Die From Bulimia?

Yes! It can go unnoticed for a long period of time because you don’t see the binging or purging part ,at least most of the time. The article from Death From Bulimia - 9 Terrifying Conditions To Look Out For sums it up perfectly, so I’m just going to copy and paste it here. 1. Ketoacidosis: This is when high acid levels build up in your blood. An extremely dangerous condition that can lead to sudden coma and death. 2. Seizures or Fits: People with bulimia have a higher chance of suffering from seizures or fits which can cause brain damage and death. 3. Pancreatitis: This potentially life threatening illness is when digestive enzymes attack your pancreas. It can be caused by the excessive use of laxatives or diet pills. 4. Electrolyte Imbalance: Dehydration, the loss of potassium and the loss of sodium can cause electrolyte imbalances. Abnormal electrolyte levels are common in bulimics and can cause sudden cardiac arrest - which is what happened to Terri Schiavo. 5. Suicide and Depression: Being bulimic can feel like a living hell. Every day is hard. It's an exhausting and depressing way to live. Suicide is a real risk for those deeply lost in bulimia. 6. Cardiac Arrest: Cardiac Continue reading >>

Do Humans Or Animals Hang Like Computers, Ever? If Not, Why? If Yes, When And Under What Circumstances?

Yes, they do. Meet the myotonic goat aka “fainting goat”. “A myotonic goat, otherwise known as the fainting goat, is a domestic goat whose muscles freeze for roughly 3 seconds when the goat feels panic. Though painless, this generally results in the animal collapsing on its side. The characteristic is caused by a hereditary genetic disorder called myotonia congenita. When startled, younger goats will stiffen and fall over. Older goats learn to spread their legs or lean against something when startled, and often they continue to run about in an awkward, stiff-legged shuffle.” For more in-depth explanation visit these links Anand Muglikar asks in the comment “A hang also happens because the CPU (processor) is processing info at 100% capacity or the RAM (memory) is fully occupied by some process. Is there an analogy to this in biology?” This I think was added in the question later. Anyways, the closest example of a healthy mind going through this is in case of Fight or Flight response. It basically means that when you face a threat, your body goes into fight or flight mode which means that it either readies itself to fight the threat or to flee, if it can’t. But the prob Continue reading >>
