Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Your Brain Doesn’t Need 130 G/carbs A Day: How A Low-carb Ketogenic Diet Protects The Brain

Tweet A favorite argument of detractors of low-carb diets is that they don’t provide sufficient glucose for the brain to function. You’ve probably heard some well-meaning person say, “You need to eat 130 grams of carbohydrates a day for proper brain function.” Fortunately, this is not true. Just think how much trouble our hunter-gatherer ancestors would have been in if brain function was compromised every time carbohydrates were scarce. A daily intake of 130 grams of carbs is no small feat when you don’t have a local grocery store stocked with packaged grains, bread, cereal, and chips for your convenience. This widespread misconception is based on a misunderstanding of the brain’s fuel needs. The brain does require about 50 grams of glucose a day, but this doesn’t need to come from dietary carbs, and the brain can get the rest of the energy it requires from ketones, a byproduct of fat metabolism. It works like this: the body can get glucose from three sources other than dietary carbs: 1) Glycerol, produced from dietary fat or fat tissue in the body These substrates go to the liver where it turns them into glucose via the process known as gluconeogenesis. The glucose t Continue reading >>

    A bit over a year ago I started noticing difficulties with speaking, occasionally. I'd often completely blank on a word and stop talking midsentence, and kept using one tense of a word when I meant to use another. I wasn't having any issues thinking or writing, just talking. I was being screened for some other neurological issues at the time and came back with a clean bill of health, so I just assumed this was the dreaded "brain fog" that was a consequence of living too many years as a diabetic or just my age catching up with me (I'm 27).
    I've been on keto about six months, and it recently occurred to me that my tense misuse had virtually disappeared. Went off of keto for a few days last week, and just like magic, it was back.
    Just thought it was an interesting anecdote, and I'm curious if anyone else has noticed similar effects. I never really got the noticeable sustained energy boost or mental clarity that a lot of people feel on keto, but it's clearly still doing something for me.

    The cells in your brain quite literally work using different systems when you're in ketosis to such an extent that it's being actively researched for possible use in combating alzheimers, bpd and autism disorders.
    It's incredible just how many things it changes and how little we truly know about what exactly is going on.

    btw, just how far off did you go? Was it a lot of carbs or just a few more than your limit? Was a lot of sugar involved? You don't have to answer, but I'd be curious to know if you think there was any more to it than simply not being in ketosis.

Ep.17 – Dominic D’agostino, Phd: Boosting Brain Function & Fat Loss With A Ketogenic Diet Part 1 Of 2

With your help, I can expand this podcast and deliver better content! Dominic is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida (USF) Morsani College of Medicine and also a Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). In his lab at the University of South Florida, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino and his team develop and test therapies that target specific pathways linked to seizure disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, metabolic dysregulation, cancer, muscle wasting and exercise performance. Not only is Dominic D’Agostino a researcher, professor, and neuroscientist, he’s also a biohacker and athlete. In this episode we discuss using calorie restriction, fasting, and the ketogenic diet to boost brain function, fat loss, athletic performance, and for therapeutic purposes, particularly regarding brain-related diseases and cancer. The primary focus of his laboratory is developing and testing metabolic therapies, including ketogenic diets, ketone esters and natural and synthetic molecules to target metabolic processes. His research also explores the use of these therapies for a broa Continue reading >>

Keto Diet Supplements Significantly Boost Endurance, Brain Function, And Energy Levels

Are you familiar with the Keto Diet? The meal plan essentially teaches your body to generate energy from ketones (organic compounds, which are naturally the most energy-efficient source of fuel) by ditching pretty much all carbs and replacing them with fat. In short, your body begins to rely on fat for its main source of ketogenic energy. Want to know more? Read: The Truth Behind the Keto Diet, the World’s Most Cutting-Edge, Fat-Burning Performance Meal Plan and The ‘Eat This Not That’ Guide to the Keto Diet. The Science The diet can get you in the best shape of your life, help fight cancer, and eradicate diabetes; but dammit if it isn't difficult. Luckily, new research from the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology says simply supplementing with ketones can do a number on your exercise performance and cognitive function. The new research was done in order to see if ketones would be beneficial for the body's muscles and brain in times of stress (like endurance exercise). Researchers raised circulating ketone levels in rats by feeding them a ketone diet: kibble supplemented with compounds called (R)-3-hydroxybutyl (R)-3-hydroxybutyrate, which accounted for Continue reading >>
