Which is the best weight loss diet? Ketogenic diet vs low carb diet vs atkins vs paleo? Which one of these meal plans is best to burn fat? FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O70G4m Isn't the ketogenic diet and low carb diet essentially the same thing? How about Atkins and paleo aren't all of these diets just a fancy way of saying keep your carbs low. Well it's definitely safe to say that you are limiting your carb intake in all of these diet plans but each plan calls for a slightly different approach to burning fat. Most ketogenic diets require you to keep your carbs under 30 grams a day and the most carbs that I've ever seen on a keto plan was 50 grams a day. Usually this will account for 5% of your total daily intake. Then you would have somewhere between 75 to 80 percent of your calories from fat. And finally 15 to 20 percent of your calories from protein. With ketogenic it's clear that the carbs are very limited at only 5 percent per day and the reason why carbs are so limited is because the ketogenic diet is trying to put you into ketosis. To sum it up simply ketosis is a state in which you're going to burn more fat and produce Ketone bodies in your liver for use as energy when carbohydrates are really low. Low-carb diets on the other hand don't require an exact number of carbohydrates the way that keto does. Obviously since it's low carb you wouldnt expect to have more than 20 to 30 percent of your calories coming from carbs but even at 20 percent it's a huge difference from the five percent that you get with keto. So with low carb we can consider the exact number of carbs undefined whereas with Keto that number is very defined with exact numerical values. What about atkins? When taking a closer look at Atkins you see that Atkins is different from keto and low-carb as well. With Atkins the General accepted split is 30% protein 10% carbs and 60% fat. Again this is higher in carbs than the 5 percent we see with keto which Keto dieters would not support because they would say that having a higher level of carbs would take you out of ketosis. But Atkins at certain points dies definitely put you into ketosis. The plan takes you through four phases and a lot of these phases match up with the keto structure. In Phase 1 of Atkins you have to limit your totally daily carb intake to only 20 grams per day. This is as low if not even lower than keto. Then you progress to phase 2 where you still keep carbs really low but you add in certain vegetables berries nuts and seeds back into the diet. Then in Phase 3 which you only start once you're about 10 pounds from your weight loss goal, but once your there you start to add 10 grams of carbs to your diet each week. And finally in phase four you enter maintenance which allows you to eat anywhere from 45 to 100 grams of carbs per day. Phase one and two sound just like the ketogenic diet and I'm sure when your in those two phases you will be in a state of ketosis but when you enter into phase 3 and phase 4 you're going to be moving more towards a general low carb diet which as ive already mentioned is very different from keto. Now how about paleo, where does paleo fit in all of this. Well paleo once again elicits fat loss by keeping the list of approved carbs short but the paleo plan is different because it only allows Foods that were believed to be eaten by our caveman ancestors. The best paleo macronutrient split as defined by the perfect health diet and paleo leap.com is around 20 percent carbohydrates 65 percent fat and 15 percent protein. Again this is slightly different from what we've seen with low carb and Atkins but it's very different from keto. Even though paleo and Keto are both low in carbohydrates Keto is significantly lower than paleo again keto totals only at 5% of total daily intake. The Paleo diet is also very specific with what foods you can and cannot eat. Even though you can do this diet with regular produce it's highly recommended that all your meat products are grass-fed wild caught and pasture-raised. You're allowed to eat any fresh vegetables except for potatoes and any nuts except for peanuts. Also eggs, healthy oils like olive oil, and fresh fruit especially berries are allowed on the plan. Grains, bread, cereals, any processed food, legumes, beans, and Dairy are completely off the plan. Dairy is a big part of the ketogenic diet for many people. A lot of people get the massive amount of fat required on keto with options like cheese. Cheese would be forbidden on the Paleo diet but on paleo you would actually be able to eat things like pumpkin squash and yams. With keto it would be almost impossible to eat these things because you would easily exceed you're 5% carb allowance. Most of these diets matchup in their efforts to limit grains

Effects Of A Low Carbohydrate Diet: Overview

No matter what Atkins or other diet books tell you, the balance of evidence clearly shows that saturated animal fat is bad for you and is associated with increased risk of cancer [Journal of the National Cancer Institute 95 (2003): p.1079], diabetes, and heart disease. [WHO Technical Report Series 916, 2003] Even independent of the effects on obesity, meat consumption itself has been related to increased risk of coronary heart disease [Preventive Medicine 13 (1984): p.490] and for over 40 years medical reviews have also shown the detrimental impact of dietary cholesterol consumption. [Geriatrics (1961): p.407] The Chair of the American Medical Association's Council on Food and Nutrition explained in testimony before Congress why the AMA felt they had to formally publish an official condemnation of the Atkins Diet: "It became apparent that the (Atkins) diet as recommended poses a serious threat to health." "People need to wake up to the reality," Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop writes, that the Atkins Diet is "unhealthy and can be dangerous." [Shape Up America! news release, 29 December 2003] The largest organization of food and nutrition professionals in the world calls Continue reading >>

    Is the ketogenic diet related to kidney stones?

    I've been surfing the web to find some good KETO recipes and I came across multiple sites that stated being on a KETO diet raised your chances for kidney stones immensely. Taking the odds form 1 in several thousand to 1 in 20. I've had a kidney stone before and that is definitely something I don't want to go through again. Can anyone verify this?

  2. hjmacd1984

    Im not 100% sure, but I think youre more at risk the more protein you consume - being on keto should be okay as youre taking in around 1-1.5lbs per lbs LBM.. whereas something like the palumbo diet I think you'd be relying more on high protein and moderate fat.
    Not completely sure, maybe check with your doc... maybe its not suitable for you seeing as youve already had kidney stones, just check

    Lot of nonsense. It's based on the totally unproven idea that high protein diets will damage your kidneys. Not only are there no studies showing this, there hasn't been a single documented case of it. The only problem keto is likely to cause your kidneys is that keto is a duiretic diet, so you don't drink enough, your piss won't be dilute enough and that could cause problems.
    In any case, keto is not a high protein diet, it's moderate protein. Look at the Nutrition forum and you'll find guys packing away 200-350g of protein a day and none of them are worrying about exploding kidneys. Most people here are eating half that.

Strange And Schafermeyer's Pediatric Emergency Medicine, 4e >

Abdominal pain accounts for approximately 10% visits and elicits a broad differential, with more serious etiologies often presenting similar to processes that are benign and self-limited.1 The most frequently encountered surgical and medical causes of abdominal pain are addressed herein, including causes of abdominal pain that are unique to the female and male reproductive tracts. Abdominal pain can be visceral or somatic. Visceral pain is poorly localized and difficult to describe, even in older children; somatic pain is intense and readily localized. Referred pain syndromes manifested as abdominal pain may be characteristic of a variety of clinical problems. An effective relationship with the caregiver and careful observation can provide abundant information about a child's diagnosis. With older patients, the presence of a caregiver may hinder communication, particularly when needing an accurate sexual history. Overall, formulate questions appropriate for the child's level of development, regardless of the patient's age. Use open-ended inquiries over “yes or no” questions. Create a preliminary differential diagnosis, including abdominal conditions, systemic illnesses, and ref Continue reading >>

Appendicitis And What Really Causes It?????

OK, so my wife is literally going under the knife in about 45 minutes from the time I'm writing this. She will have her apppendix (sp?) removed. It should be pretty standard with not much to worry about. But it got me thinking, what REALLY causes this appendicitis and the need for removal? We have been grain free for over 2 years now. Once a month sushi (rice). Local food, pastured this and that meats, wild caught, fermenting veggies, good fats, no legumes, butter (some hard cheese 1x per week), 2x CF weekly, etc, etc... (seriously, we're the top 5%ers). Starting my research, but thanks for the insight. LOL, by the time I get my hands around this, her appendix will be removed. :) Craig Continue reading >>

    i couldn't agree with you more. it makes more sense to consider acid/enzymes than to consider calcification, in my opinion. assessing whether you chew your food well enough is the first thing to try if one suspects low stomach acid/enzymes. bacteria balance is a massively important issue, in my experience, too. which, of course, is related to how well you're breaking down your food. balancing bacteria, mitigating endotoxin, has a lot to do with consistency and meeting the demands of the body, but it also has to do with the foods you choose to eat. for example, the only reason i eat a little bit of vegetables is because it balances my digestion for some reason. same thing with the specific starches i choose to eat and my avoidance of excess fruit. sometimes an assumed "liver glycogen" issue or "hypoglycemia" could simply be an inability to break down your food. being temporarily hypoglycemic and eating frequently is how you get out of hypoglycemia and how you replenish glycogen - but considerations of acid/enzymes and balancing your bacteria have to also be considered. Hi Nicholas....we've both come to many similar conclusions. I've developed the habit of eating instinctively and for me that means my diet changes seasonally. I naturally move away from cold foods such as yogurt, although I still eat ice cream. Also, certain fruits become unappealing during the fall and winter. I tend to drink less milk in favor of more cooked vegetables and bone broth. I also crave more eggs.
    My point in getting involved in this conversation is that while I do believe that decalcifying and methylation are VERY important, I think there are more (better/safer) ways to achieve this.
    Methylation issues can be caused by many things, chronic gut infections, nutritional deficiencies, parasites and heavy metal toxicities (mercury and fluoride come to mind) are just a few. All of these could affect the way the body is using calcium. I think it's important to address the myriads of underlying causes.
    My own personal experience: I ate a ketogenic diet for three years. During that time I drank no milk/yogurt/ice cream etc. However my kidneys became very painful and colicky. Blood tests showed lowish kidney function and my energy/sleep/mood completely tanked. My diet consisted of LOTS of meat, leafy greens and PUFA (butter and coconut oil were in there too). I also developed a painful, stiff crunchy neck. X-rays from the chiropractor revealed heavy calcification and the doc said there was nothing I could do about it....just a natural part of "aging". I also became insanely insulin resistant despite having NO sugar or grains in my diet....I had to ask myself how does this happen? I don't know what my calcium intake was back then because I wasn't tracking anything, but I'm guessing that my oxalates were through the roof!
    After finding Peat and changing my diet, I noticed what appeared to be SAND in my urine. It started about 6 months in and lasted for a couple months. My kidneys were no longer painful or going in to spasms, my labs were normal and I felt waaaay better, so I went with it. The pain and loud crunching in my neck has also melted away over the last two years, so I have to believe that dairy is not so evil and the many other factors that I've been addressing have been helping my body to actually heal. The human body is awesome that way.
    At any rate, I gathered that the OP was suggesting a high meat diet with 100 gms of carbohydrate and hemp oil, among other things. I applaud his enthusiasm and self-experimentation. However, I think doing this long term would raise cortisol and I don't think that combining lots of meat and PUFA oils is gonna be good for the kidneys which is something he is concerned about. This is only my opinion based on my own ongoing experiment :2cents
    MORE magnesium is always good.....
    One more thought: I'm not advocating PUFA oil ingestion, but would a whole food source instead of oils work? If not, why not?
    Also, how come the peeps doing this experiment aren't sharing here openly? Why the Private Messages with the OP? We're all curious here....

    post 119371 The area you describe is very near your appendix, so I would be paying close attention. My appendix ruptured 5 years ago, I was a big bread eater back then, but the feeling you describe sounds VERY familiar Damn it seems like the pain is happening around appendix area. Could be appendicitis or appendicolith.
    How would you suggest to fix this issue? Hopefully not surgery, I can't afford that. Something more natural and accessible would be nice. I think appendicolith can be fixed by upping magnesium and sodium intake, but I don't know how to fix appendicitis. A website suggests castor oil to clear blockage off appendix, but it's PUFA. This might need to be separated into different thread. It's very off-tangent from OP topic.
