Breast-feeding (nursing) allows a new mother to feed her infant directly from her breasts. Ideally, an infant will nurse and get milk directly from the mother's nipple but, when that is not possible, milk can be expressed (pumped) from the breast and fed to the infant in a bottle. Breast-feeding provides an infant with essential vitamins, protein and fat, as well as antibodies that help the immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), if physically possible, women should exclusively breast-feed their infants for at least the first 6 months of life. Breast-feeding is beneficial to both infant and mother. In addition to providing nutrition, breast milk is easier to digest than formula, and research has indicated that it may lower the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Nursing is also effective at building immunity in infants, and children who nurse have a lower risk of ear infections, asthma, obesity, respiratory infections and type 2 diabetes as they get older. Breast-feeding is also beneficial to the mother in the following ways: Uterus contracts and returns to normal size Lowers the risk of breast and ovarian cance Continue reading >>

    So I just started a keto diet. I'm 270 and eating 23 carb a day.
    I do workout often and usually I do vigorous cardio (160-175 bpm) and I really love it. I was trying to find information regarding vigorous workouts while in Ketosis and I'm not finding much. I did find one post on bb forum that said:
    "CARDIO should be performed at a low intensity (under 120bpm heartrate). This will ensure that you use FAT as a fuelsource since as your heartrate increase, carbohydrates begin to become the preferred fuel of choice for the body. When on a low carb diet, you're body will break down muscle and turn that into carbs. Remember, Fat CANNOT be changed into carbs. Therefore, for bodybuilding, the rule of cardio should be LONG DURATION, LOW INTENSITY
    never do less than 20 min per session
    The BOTTOM LINE is that low intensity cardio (while you might need more of it) ensures that fat is utilized and muscle is spared (especially while on my high protein/moderate fat/low carb diety)."
    I know that as you work harder your body goes from burning on a typical diet a lot of carbs and a lot of fat and as you get more and more intense a lot more carbs and a lot less fat (80/20) but I have no idea what happens when you're in ketosis.
    The UCONN study on athletes I can't quite remember, but I think they said 50% fat for the lowest participant, not quite sure.
    Anyway does anyone have more info?

    The post on bb forum smells like bullshit. Big bullshit.
    Don't worry about that. Do the kind of workout you love.

    "Ketosis where you stop burning carbohydrates as fuel"...so due to that fact, the bb forum post does not apply to keto.
    Do whatever you enjoy doing for exercise. You will burn calories no matter what you choose to do. The key is to do something that you enjoy and can do for the long term.
    Btw, 23 carbs is less than 100 calories. By the time you reach the gym you would have burned up more calories than that. You are overthinking this.
    To lose the weight, stay under 20-25 net carbs, hit the correct protein goals, eat/burn a defiicit of calories each day.
    If you want to guarantee weight loss, instead of "hoping" to lose weight - COUNT CALORIES & TRACK YOUR FOOD INTAKE - this will make sure you lose weight correctly & efficiently.
