    Is keto worth the effort or would I lose just as much restricting 800 calories? Keto would be 1000.

Keto Diet Craze Is Difficult But Worth It

As health concerns become increasingly prevalent, the ketogenic diet, also known as “keto,” is becoming a new health trend in the United States. The science behind keto, which is a low carbohydrate, high-fat diet, is that carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose and then are transported around the body as a fueling source. But, if there is only a small amount of carbohydrates in the diet, the liver converts fat into acids and ketones, and those are used instead of glucose as an energy source. “We use it a lot,” Dee Harris said, who is a nutritionist and dietician for D-Signed Nutrition in Fort Myers. “Keto is great for neurological conditions such as epilepsy. We have had many experiences where keto has shown to promote brain health.” According to Harris, sending ketones to the brain rather than glucose creates more nerve synapses in the brain, which can have positive effects such as memory retention. The potential benefits of a ketogenic diet don’t stop at neurological improvement. A lot of athletes are using it. According to Harris, athletes that burn fat versus carbohydrates allow themselves to burn a lot more calories. The ketones in the body rat Continue reading >>

    I guess almost anything is worth a try as long as it sticks to certain guidelines and you are informed on what you're doing, because everyone's body responds differently too different things. In my professional opinion I do not advise it. I would not advise any type of eating specifically for weight loss purposes unless it's for health reasons.

  2. Ronak Pattani

    It's worth a try to see if it works for you. However, things to consider:

    Calories still matter. Ketogenic diets mean eating lots of fat, fat has a lot of calories so if you eat too much fat, you won't lose weight. I made this mistake when doing keto.
    You might feel tired for the first few weeks whilst your body adapts to using fat for fuel.
    Your workouts might suffer.
    This is a restrictive diet, so might be hard to stick to.
    Keto is not a magic bullet, and carbs / insulin don't automatically mean fat gain.

    Have you tried a less restrictive eating regimen, but doing is consistently for week and months on end?

Low Carb, Paleo, Detox – Is It Worth The Hype?

New year, new me? When the year is about to end, it often feels like we are about to finish a chapter in a book. We are excited for the next chapter and have high expectations in it. We want it to be better than the last one. Luckily, in contrast to reading books, we are the ones who can influence the next chapter tremendously. Do you remember your last year’s resolutions? What did you do in order to achieve them? What hindered you from where you wanted to be? New year, new diet? When it comes to nutrition and weight loss, everyone seems to have the goal to do a little bit better next year. Magazines, TV shows and the internet are full of new fad diets. Don’t we all want to lose weight as quickly as possible? Unfortunately, a lot of approaches are quite extreme and do not work long-term. You might be able to follow a restrictive diet for some days, but not long-term. Eventually, your body will respond and ask for the energy it requires. Be prepared for mood swings, low energy levels and cravings. Let’s have a look at five of the current most popular diets. 1. Restricted diet (Crash diet) There are many diets which promote a weight loss of 10 pounds a week. Cutting off calorie Continue reading >>

    Hey all,
    This is sort of a spin off from the fat-shaming thread, but I didn't want thread hijack with a 'hey...help me fix my diet' post . I've been off my diet for few weeks for various reasons, but I need to go back on it and I think it needs minor tweaking. I was low carbing for the purposes of getting into ketosis, but also keeping my diet low fat (and overall watching the calories)...which was getting kinda tricky if I'm going to be honest.
    I've been reading the debate back and forth about different styles of diet in the other thread and well...I'm confused, mainly about the role of ketosis. My understanding of ketosis comes from a introductory subject on nutrition that I took many years back and is something like this: The brain (and some other part of the body which I can't remember) essentially need carbohydrates for fuel. In the absence of enough carbohydrate, the body breaks down fat cells into ketones as a substitute fuel for the brain. The source of fat for this process can either come from the diet or from stored body fat.
    My main internal theory for keeping my diet both low in fat and low in carbs was that I would go into ketosis and because I wasn't eating very much dietary fat that my body would have to use stored fat to produce ketones thus getting bonus fat loss on top of maintaining a calorie deficit I guess. Some of the studies being put forth were that ketosis did not increase the amount of fat burned (ok...that's if I understood correctly, which might be iffy)...the one point of consensus seemed to be that ketogenic diets increase satiety (...and I was sitting there thinking 'well, if it's just a matter of controlling my appetite I'd really like to eat some lf flavoured yoghurt' ).
    What I'm essentially trying to work out is: if I have a diet that is low fat and maintains a certain number of calories...is that the same as having a diet that is low fat, maintains the same number of calories, but is also ketogenic (low carbs) in terms of weight loss or would I burn more fat under the second scenario? I feel like I'm missing something.

  2. Spacey47

    no diet of the same calorie level has any more benefit than any other it's about
    Energy in and out.
    If a certain diet helps you stick to a calorie deficit over another then consider it
    diet wise there is no metabolic advantage
    Imo humans evolved to eat the natural foodstuffs that grow on our planet get your calories from a balanced mixed diet
    and exercise...this is sustainable long term

  3. liv001

    You really would have to try this out on your body
    One thing is for sure a flavoured yogurt is not going to be your friend if you want to be in ketosis. They are flavoured with a loud of sugar and ketosis and sugar is not going to work
    I can answer this from an Atkins perspective (since Atkins is my kind of diet)
    The brain need glucose. In absence of enough carbs the body will break down protein to make the glucose.
    body needs energy - it usually gets a lot of energy from carbs. In absence of carbs it will break down fat through ketosis
    There is nothing wrong with eating fat. Not eating fat will not make ketosis change.
    You have to eat something and if you do not eat fat or carb you will have to eat protein. It may not be good to put your body through high amounts of protein - also it is believed the body can break down excess protein to create sugar and if that happens you may as well be eating carbs
    so you need to find your balance.
    Lost of stuff you can read about there about low carbing (I like to check the diet doctor's web site regularly, follow some of Jimmy Moore's podcasts - join a support group - because that helps)
