Would I Lose Weight In 2 Days If I Eat 500 Calories Everyday?

Fasting has many potential benifits. Intermittent fasting is a potentially safer way to fast. I myself, have done a fast of 48 hours (2 -days). I’m no certified health professional, but I read quite often and extensively. This “starvation mode” people talk about is a common misconception nickname. Firstly, there’s: Diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. The condition develops when your body can't produce enough insulin. Not to be confused with: Ketosis, which is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis Continue reading >>

  3. Paradox

    i think (and others may correct me if i'm wrong) that sugar alcohol is like regular alcohol in that even though it doesn't prevent weight loss, it slows it, because while it is available in your body, your body will burn it for fuel instead of your fat stores. but don't take that as gospel (its not as if i'm Nat or something! *wink*)

Does Starving Only Lead To Loss Of Water Weight Or Muscle Mass Instead Of Fat Loss?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STARVE YOURSELF? This will be a long one, but I think it's important to clearly delineate the starvation process instead of relying on blurbs from the internet To answer the question directly, starving yourself will lead to fat loss at first, then muscle and water loss, then fat loss again, then death. To explain why, let's do a breakdown of what happens when you stop eating starting from your last meal. You've just taken your last bite of food. Your saliva enzymes start breaking it down. It goes down your esophagus. Your stomach acid and enzymes break it down further into chyme which is a partially digested mass of food-like product that is small enough to enter into the intestine. Your gall bladder, pancreas, and small intestine produce more enzymes to further break the food down into it's separate components, different enzymes and compounds are secreted to break down food based on it's content.[1] [2] Additionally, foods are broken down by your gut microbiome, or bacteria. The bacteria in your gut will eat the food you provide it and excrete it in a different form, which may be absorbed by your body. [3] [4] [5] When it's small enough, the various nutrients Continue reading >>

    I understand ketosis is achieved when staying between 0-50g of carbs, upwards to 100g for some people.
    But I was wondering where sugar fits in to this?
    The reason I'm asking is there's a full fat greek yogurt that I LOVE. But it's got 15g of carbs and 10g of sugar.
    Will eating that likely to kick me out of ketosis?

  2. Egoldstein

    thinking about being IN ketosis or not is somewhat misleading. What you want is to be fully keto-adapted, meaning your body will seamlessly move from carb burning, fat burning, maybe protein burning back and forth. The carb flu period is when you are not fully adapted and feel a bit out of sorts when transitioning. For someone fully adapted, having a high carb meal or day should not impair longer-term fat burning and fatloss.

  3. OnTheBayou

    Sugar and carbs in yogurt is misleading. Carbs in all foods are not determined directly, but presumed to be what is left over after subtracting proteins and fats. Most, but not all, of the milk's lactose is converted to acids (acidolphilus, any one?) which while still carbs are no longer sugars.
    Just stay away from sugar added yogurts and don't eat it too often. It is dairy.

What Are Some Amazing Brain Hacks?

Stressed? Just Chew a Gum- This trick is a charm. I bet you would have noticed various legends like Ronaldo, Sachin Tendulkar etc chewing gum on field. Did you ever wonder why? Perhaps it appears cool. But it has a psychological reason too. Chewing gum occupies part of brain to concentrate in chewing, hence reducing stress in certain situations. Funny huh? Irritating Song Stuck in your head? There are various situations where some irritating Minaj songs get stuck in our head. And our brain plays it again and again. There is a simple way to get rid out of it. Just try to concentrate at the end part of the song and continue to end it, all in your head! And Taa-Daaaa! It’s gone! Got hit? Are you in pain? I personally found huge success in this trick. Whenever that toe-end table-dashing pain hits me, all I do is, try to deviate my concentration to something delicious like pizza, burger or your partner(pun intended). I personally think of Black Forest Pie (works amazing for me). It won’t end your pain as such, but will incredibly reduce. Trust me guys, IT WORKS! (Slap yourself and try it now) Exercising your brain- Just like you develop those hunky bulged biceps by constant exercise Continue reading >>

    I saw a link to this article on Facebook and these claims seem very bold and adamant about ketosis being unnatural and very dangerous (and another claim is boring but I highly disagree with that one). Basically saying that it prevents you from "properly" burning fat, that you will have so little energy that you will always feel miserable, not be able to get through workouts, etc. Well all I have experienced so far on this diet counters all those claims. What I am still a bit curious about is why these claims can still be spread on a weightloss website like Sparkpeople, saying no one should ever eat low carb cuz it's so horrible for you and "extremely dangerous."
    Here is the full article. What are your responses to this based on experience and research?

  2. hippygirl325

    Also curious even more so about long term effects?

  3. radiii

    The biggest problem with many of the statements in that article is that they seem to assume that you go to a low carb diet by jacking up your protein intake. They keep referencing "high protein" diets. Keto is not a high protein diet. Its a moderate protein, high fat diet.
    and above all—boring
    Well, we know that's not true, right?
    With no glucose available for energy, the body starts using protein from food for energy. Therefore this protein is no longer available for more important functions, such as making new cells, tissues, enzymes, hormones, and antibodies and the regulation of fluid balance.
    Also not true for us if doing it right. If protein is required for energy, its converted into glucose. That will prevent ketosis. If you're in ketosis, you're using fat for energy. This is the concern you'll sometimes see mentioned on keto boards about "too much protein".
    These ketones accumulate in the blood and in the urine causing ketosis, which is an abnormal state.
    This seems like its probably pulling from the fear of ketoacidosis? Dunno.
    Due to the lack of energy and the accumulation of ketones, low-carb diets are often accompanied by nausea, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, bad breath, and dehydration.
    bad breath aside, we know that these things are not caused by "the accumulation of ketones", but by a lack of key electrolytes and is something that we all manage.
    Exercise and fitness performance is reduced on a low-carb diet. Do not be surprised if your energy level is so low that you cannot make it through your normal workout routine.
    Exercise performance is initially reduced on a low carb diet, while the body adjusts to its new source of energy. This is part of what you hear when you hear the phrase "keto adapted". Exercise performance typically returns to normal levels for almost everyone after a month or so of being on a ketogenic diet.
    The ketogains FAQ, and sub in general, is a great resource for this. They do discuss some options for performance involving carbs, but they also stress heavily that those options are really only necessary for intense activity. The "TKD" method there gives you a small carb boost before a workout but you burn it all right away and never leave ketosis.
    Kidney stones are more likely to form on high protein, ketosis-producing diets.
    Drink lots of water to keep things running cleanly!
    The risk of heart disease is greatly increased on a low-carb diet that is high in protein, cholesterol, fat, and saturated fat. A temporary reduction in cholesterol levels may be experienced, but this is common with any weight loss.
    This goes along with the "eating fat makes you fat" and "eating cholesterol raises your cholesterol" schtick that we now know isn't true (eggs are bad remember?!).
    The reddit user "darthluiggi" has been on keto since 2001. He's a mod of the ketogains sub:
    There is part of his story, I always enjoy his posts and advice given the great experience he has.
    reddit user anbeav is extremely active on the keto subreddit and has been on keto for a decade. I believe there are some other longer term keto folks there but those are the two I'm most familier with.
    I'm not the best at pulling tons of studies to refute things, but I guarentee if you spend some time on the "ketoscience" subreddit searching through these things you'll feel better

    What are ketones? Ketones are produced when the body burns fat for energy or fuel. They are also produced when you lose weight or if there is not enough insulin to help your body use sugar for energy. Without enough insulin, glucose builds up in the blood. Since the body is unable to use glucose for energy, it breaks down fat instead. When this occurs, ketones form in the blood and spill into the urine. These ketones can make you very sick. How c ...
