Bulletproof Plan To Activate Untapped Brain Energy To Work Smarter And Think Faster

Bulletproof Plan To Activate Untapped Brain Energy To Work Smarter And Think Faster

Health ultimately boils down to mitochondrial function. Both weight loss and improved brain capacity are byproducts of simple lifestyle changes that optimize your mitochondria Environmental toxins such as mold and chemicals have the ability to impede mitochondrial function and stifle your body’s ability to create energy Biohacks that can improve your mental acuity include infrared exposure (such as sunlight), cyclical ketosis, cyclical mTOR activation, cold thermogenesis, high-impact exercise and more By Dr. Mercola Can you biohack your brain to get sharper, smarter and work faster? According to Dave Asprey, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, founder and CEO of bulletproof.com, and author of “The Bulletproof Diet” and “Head Strong: The Bulletproof Plan to Activate Untapped Brain Energy to Work Smarter and Think Faster — in Just Two Weeks,” the answer is a resounding yes. In addition to being early internet adopters, Dave and I share similar interests with respect to optimizing brain function — something we both discuss in our respective books. I had the opportunity to preview “Head Strong” and really enjoy Dave’s approach. It’s different from my book, “Fat for Fuel,” but the two books complement each other quite well. Dave approaches the subject of optimizing brain function from the perspective of having suffered serious health problems and seeking options for recovery, because the conventional route simply did not work. At one point, he weighed 300 pounds, couldn’t lose weight, and was suffering the effects of multiple toxic exposures, including Lyme disease. He’s an inspiring example of someone who, despite not being a trained physician, is able to sift through the medical literature to unearth important health truths.

The Ketotic Brain Compared To The Glycolitic Brain1 [studies And Anecdotes]

The Ketotic Brain Compared To The Glycolitic Brain1 [studies And Anecdotes]

I’ve briefly touched the subject of ketotic brain metabolism in some of my past posts. I’d say there’s much more to this subject than what I wrote before. Here I will discuss additional research findings along with a few personal experiences (anecdotes). My focus is on GABA and glutamate mediated effects. I’ll begin with some personal reports: Ever since I started experimenting with ketosis back in 2013 I noticed a dramatic shift in my mental condition. Prior to ketosis I was following a normal diet (glycolitic). I remember experiencing post-meal energy crashes that would last for a few hours and would render me mildly mentally incapacitated (exaggerating claim). If I were to engage in cognitive tasks of any kind, it would not have been easy to get through. With ketosis that was not the case. Stable morning-to-evening energy levels, sharp-focus all the way, mental clarity – my new norms. What’s even more important is that once engaged in a task I would be deep into it until deciding to switch. Switching between tasks with immediate regain of focus on the new task was another pleasant and surprising finding. The combination of these effects made me stick to ketosis ever since. My approach to ketosis, however, has been altered almost continuously since 2013. In the beginning I was following a conventional high fat ketogenic diet – 80%+ of calories from fat. Gradually, I shifted towards ketosis without having to consume exaggerated amounts of fat – thus allowing the body to burn more fat from endogenous sources – provided that carbohydrate intake did not impair the process. I’ve discovered through personal experience that I can remain ketotic if I choose my carbohydrates appropriately. Intermittent fasting provides additional support to this. Besides me Continue reading >>

Top 11 Low Carb Myths

Top 11 Low Carb Myths

The top 11 low carb myths, I bet you’ve heard them already – it’s dangerous, it’s unhealthy, it’s unsustainable, it’s restrictive, there’s no evidence – well let me explain why all those low carb myths are unfounded, and in fact, I can show you how each of the low carb myths can be counter-argued. Generally low carb myths are being circulated by those who may not have researched low carb and make assumptions, or by those who haven’t caught up with the science. Studies continue to support the fact that low carb is an excellent choice for weight loss, heart health, diabetes (T1 and T2), nutrition, gut health, mental clarity and more information is coming to light regarding the ketogenic diet in the role of adjunctive cancer therapy. We eat no carbs and we restrict fruit and vegetables – firstly we are low carb not no carb and secondly there are no essential carbohydrates known. We have essential fatty acids and essential proteins, but there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. We eat fruit, but we choose nutrient dense fruit such as berries, but stay away from high sugar tropical fruits such as mango, bananas and pineapple. When we do eat carbs, it is from nutrient dense lower carb vegetables, nuts, berries and dairy. Our vegetable intake for most people actually increases. We remove the processed carbs from our diet and replace them with more vegetables. We no longer use carbs such as rice, pasta and bread to bulk up our meals, we use vegetables. We eat far too much meat and protein – sorry, another myth. We eat moderate protein. Too much protein is converted into glucose in the body via gluconeogenesis. We also advocate to eat meat that has had minimal intervention such as steaks, roasts, drumsticks, organ meats. There is a vast differenc Continue reading >>

How Long Does It Take To Feel Increased Energy And Mental Clarity After Starting The Ketogenic Diet?

How Long Does It Take To Feel Increased Energy And Mental Clarity After Starting The Ketogenic Diet?

I’m currently on the Keto Diet, so I’m speaking from my personal experience. For me it took about 2 weeks but I was kinda doing it wrong at first. I was still eating too many carbs and then I wasn’t eating enough fat. I have to tell you that it is an awesome diet! Brain fog is real! Be warned though, you need to eat enough calories or you’ll lose muscle mass as well. Also, as meat is expensive, this diet will be expensive too. Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate and aim for at least that many calories. You can use BMR calculators such as this one. The length of time will likely vary depending on your age, height, gender, and weight, (or caloric requirements) as well as how often you workout and what your body fat percentage is currently like. I’d guess between 2–3 weeks. This is not the kind of energy you were expecting…? Personally, I wouldn’t exactly characterize it as increased energy, just consistent energy. Before I went keto, I would have spurts of energy and constantly grow tired shortly after eating. I had to take excessive amounts of caffeine to stay awake. This never happens anymore. It’s not a cure-all. Sometimes I don’t get enough to eat or I don’t get enough sleep so I still can get tired but it’s nothing compared to before. Nevertheless, a cup of coffee is usually plenty enough to help me during these times. I’ve been on the Keto diet for almost 3 months. I lost over 25 lbs and went down from about 28% to 17%< body fat and I don't feel sick or tired all the time, infact I feel great! Some people adjust the macros (i.e. 65% fat 30% protein 5% carbs or 60% fat 30% protein 10% carbs) and they do just fine. Find what works for you, any reduced carbs will be helpful to your long term health but it may or may not get you all the way to Continue reading >>

The Ketogenic Diet And Mental Health

The Ketogenic Diet And Mental Health

Inflammation is one of the most powerful factors which determines health and illness. Levels of inflammation in the body are very strongly influenced by dietary choices. In my holistic practice of psychiatry, one of the most important conversations which I have repeatedly with my patients, is the fundamental importance of following a non-inflammatory diet. This conversation must be had repeatedly, because diet is one of the very hardest things for most people to change. For optimum health, I believe that a Ketogenic Diet, one that is high in fat, adequate in protein and low in carbohydrate, exerts the most anti-inflammatory effect. This combination changes the way energy is used in the body; instead of deriving energy from carbohydrates which convert to glucose, energy is sourced from fats which convert in the liver into fatty acids and ketone bodies. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, is correlated with myriad health benefits. In contrast, elevated levels of glucose leads to inflammation, insulin resistance and accelerates aging. Research on the impact of a ketogenic diet for Cancer, Autism, Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Sleep Disorders, Headaches, Bipolar Disorder, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease is emerging, and I anticipate that we are going to be hearing much more about its health benefits and novel applications. The ketogenic diet was used very effectively to treat epilepsy in the 1920’s, until anti-convulsant drugs were introduced in the 1940’s, when it fell out of favor. It’s easier to take pills than to follow a restrictive diet, and the pharmaceutical industry’s lobby is very influential. Pharmaceuticals, as opposed to dietary changes, remain the standard of care Continue reading >>

Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Ketosis But Were Afraid To Ask.

Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Ketosis But Were Afraid To Ask.

Do you know what the similarities are between epilepsy, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn (GERD), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, mental illness, schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, narcolepsy, and sleep disorders, treating cancer, autism, migraines, chronic pain, brain injury, stroke, and kidney disease? They can all be positively effected by a low-carb, high-fat, ketosis diet… …and my guest today, Jimmy Moore, is going to tell you all about it. Jimmy is world’s leading low-carb diet blogger and podcaster. Last year, he wrote the book Cholesterol Clarity with coauthor Dr. Eric C. Westman, a practicing internist and low-carb diet researcher, and I interviewed him about that book in the podcast episode “The Shocking Truth About Cholesterol & Why You Probably Don’t Even Need To Test For It.” Well now, Jimmy’s back with a new book that pretty much answers everything you’ve always wanted to know about ketosis but were afraid to ask. The new book is called Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet and in the book, Jimmy shows you how a low-carb diet can be much more than simply as a means to lose weight, and how ketosis produces not only a powerful therapeutic effect on a wide variety of health conditions (that most people think requires medication to control) but can also be a pretty incredible biohack for both physical and mental performance. The book includes interviews from twenty of the world’s authorities on low carb and ketosis diets, along with a step-by-step guide to help you produce more ketones and track your progress, real li Continue reading >>

I Tried The 'atkins On Steroids' Diet For 2 Months — And It Made Me Feel Invincible

I Tried The 'atkins On Steroids' Diet For 2 Months — And It Made Me Feel Invincible

I gave up carbohydrates for the ketogenic, or "keto," diet for two months — and it vastly improved my life. Courtesy of Melia Robinson It was 2 o'clock on a Tuesday, and I felt surprisingly awake. Attentive. Even productive. I love my job, but on a normal afternoon, I find myself searching for distractions in the depths of my inbox and on Facebook. That Tuesday in June was different. I knocked out one to-do list item after the next. I felt not just focused, but genuinely happy and relieved to be making so much progress. It was the moment I realized how effective the ketogenic diet could be. The "keto" diet is experiencing a surge in popularity thanks to Silicon Valley tech workers who evangelize its ability to promote weight loss, boost energy, and possibly prolong life itself. The low-carb, high-fat diet — which first became popular in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy and diabetes — limits carbohydrates to no more than 50 grams a day, the rough equivalent of a plain bagel or a cup of white rice. Dietary guidelines laid out by the US Department of Agriculture recommend between 225 and 325 grams of carbs a day. Adherents of the keto diet fill up on healthy fats — like cheese, nuts, avocado, eggs, and butter — as well as leafy greens and animal protein. The body switches from burning carbs to burning fat as its primary fuel source, a process known as ketosis, which gives the diet its name. Like the keto diet, the Atkins diet restricts carb consumption to 20 to 25 grams a day during an introductory phase, then ramps up to 80 to 100 grams a day. So it's less strict than the keto diet — some have called it "Atkins on steroids." For two months last spring, I tried the keto diet to see why it was so popular with techies. The first few weeks challenged me more Continue reading >>

The Effects Of The Ketogenic Diet On Behavior And Cognition

The Effects Of The Ketogenic Diet On Behavior And Cognition

Go to: Experimental animal findings Ketogenic diet and seizure models Application of the KD to multiple animal epilepsy models has demonstrated therapeutic effects, e.g. KDs can increase induced-seizure threshold, delay seizure development, attenuate seizure risk and decrease the seizure severity (Maalouf et al., 2009; Todorova et al., 2000; Xu et al., 2006; Mantis et al., 2004). While careful attention has been paid to the effects of KD upon seizure activity, less is known about its effects upon cognition. Neuroprotective capacity of the ketogenic diet Data are available that suggest that the KD has neuroprotective effects that could be applied beyond its treatment for epileptic conditions. Several studies have demonstrated that KDs can enhance cognitive function in both pathophysiological and normal healthy experimental animal systems (Appelberg et al., 2009; Xu et al., 2010). For example, KDs were able to improve the motor coordination and cognition recovery in young rats suffering from traumatic brain injury (Appelberg et al., 2009). Pro-cognitive and memory enhancement effects of KDs have been demonstrated in normal, healthy, aged rats and to a lesser extent in young rats, suggesting that age may not be a confound for KD use (Xu et al., 2010). In a murine model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in which mice express a mutated human amyloid precursor protein (APP) transgene, KDs have been shown to attenuate the production and accumulation of the cytotoxic proteolytic products of APP, i.e. amyloid-β 40/42, that are thought to underlie the etiology of AD (Van dA et al., 2005). Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS; Lou Gehrig’s disease), like AD, is a neurodegenerative disorder often linked to oxidative stress of neurons. Murine models of ALS, in which transgenic mice pos Continue reading >>

Ketosports Ketocana Dietary Ketone Review

Today, more than ever before people are looking for unique and innovative ways to lose weight. The big hope: without sacrificing the enjoyment of great tasting food. With that in mind, ketogenic dieting has become the new standard in highly effective diets. It uses the natural process ketosis in the human body to aid in weight loss and lean muscle gain. In fact, nothing quite compares to the right type of keto diet that is properly followed. KetoSports KetoCaNa Dietary Ketone is a unique type of diet supplement associated with ketogenic dieting that is well worth reviewing and exploring in greater detail. Understanding ketogenic dieting and how it facilitates healthy weight loss Stated another way, ketosis is a normal metabolic process that happens when certain conditions are met. For example, when the body is deficient in carbohydrates that are needed to produce energy for driving cell function it eventually turns to burning fat as a viable alternative. When this happens the body produces something known as ketones. A low-carb diet causes us to automatically switch gears into a state of ketosis as a way to produce energy from fat stored in the body. This is a completely natural process and has been the driving force behind many of today’s successful ketogenic diets. When ketosis is in effect, fat is burned more aggressively and most importantly, you will simply feel less hungry. When actively in ketosis, greater lean muscle mass can be achieved and increased mental clarity and greater amounts of physical energy are possible. Scientific data and clinical research have indicated that ketosis has several important health benefits that should not be ignored. One example of this is the fact that exercise ends up becoming more efficient when the body is continually in a st Continue reading >>

Are Carbohydrates Holding Us Back From Our True Potential? Exploring The Possibilities Of A Ketogenic Diet.

Are Carbohydrates Holding Us Back From Our True Potential? Exploring The Possibilities Of A Ketogenic Diet.

It is hard to avoid carbohydrates in the world we live in today. Since the industrial age 100-200 years ago, factories have been able to produce large quantities of sugar and white flour to feed the masses. Really though, foods high in carbohydrates (such as pasta, bread, rice, and potatoes) have only been available to us since the rise of agriculture, approximately 5-10,000 years ago. Prior to that, humans assumed a hunter-gatherer lifestyle where our diets consisted primarily of animal products and low starch vegetables; this was basically whatever we could find in nature without growing ourselves. According to Stephen D Phinney, simply due to circumstance, it is likely that the hunter-gatherer era of humans followed a high fat, moderate-high protein, and very low carbohydrate diet [6]. This has become known as a ketogenic diet, named after ketosis, a natural metabolic state the body undergoes when carbohydrates are nearly eliminated from one’s diet. A typical ketogenic diet might be proportioned into 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates. While in ketosis, the body utilizes fatty acids as an alternative source of energy due to the glucose deficit. To accomplish this, acetyl CoA, which is normally oxidized into H2O and CO2 as part of the citric acid cycle, is converted by the liver into acetoacetate and 3-hydroxybutyrate, also known as ketone bodies. These ketone bodies are now free to flow where needed and be used as fuel for metabolic processes. It is worthwhile to note that ketone bodies are very effective respiratory fuels; whereas 100 g of glucose generates 8.7 kg of ATP, 100 g of 3-hydroxybutyrate can yield 10.5 kg of ATP, and 100 g of acetoacetate 9.4 kg of ATP. Most areas of the body, such as the brain, will use ketones whenever provided to them (in fac Continue reading >>

The 43+ Health Benefits Of Ketogenic Dieting (in Addition To Weight Loss)

The 43+ Health Benefits Of Ketogenic Dieting (in Addition To Weight Loss)

For those unfamiliar, ketogenic dieting is any diet plan “low-carb” enough to switch your body into a state of producing and burning a significant amount of ketones, specifically acetoacetate (AcAc) and its derivatives beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and acetone. For those interested in background reading, I’ve previously written summary articles about the science of fat metabolism and ketosis here and here. These molecules, especially AcAc and BHB, are used by the brain and other tissues for energy, and facilitate a number of health benefits that I’ll address below. While the biological processes involved are extremely complex, I’d invite you to use this as the beginning of an important conversation for you and your doctor to explore together. Indeed, ketogenic dieting may or may not be appropriate for you, so please consult with your doctor before experimenting on yourself. Click here to join my newsletter and I’ll keep you posted when I get new articles up (FYI: as a heads up, I also write about entrepreneurship and web development. I started writing about fat metabolism and ketogenic dieting here at KetoSchool out of pure hobby interest, as there are relatively few resources out there that teach the underlying science). Focusing the brain (increased memory, cognition, clarity, and seizure control; less migraines) Ketogenic diets were notably first used at the Mayo Clinic in the 1920s to treat children with epilepsy. While the exact mechanism of seizure prevention on a ketogenic diet is still a mystery, researchers believe it has something to do with the increased stability of neurons and up-regulation of brain mitochondria and mitochondrial enzymes. Related to this research, some serious attention has been given to ketogenic dieting and Alzheimers Disease. Sc Continue reading >>

Ketosis: Anti-brain Fog. Neurotransmitters, Dietary Protein, And The Gut Microbiome.

Treatment for dietary protein-induced brain fog: dark chocolate with 3% GOS and 10% MCTs. Who’s in? #IntermediaryMetabolism (bear with me here) Ketosis from liver’s perspective: increased fatty acid influx & [partial] oxidation causes acetyl-CoA levels to rise dramatically. Concomitantly, gluconeogenesis redirects oxaloacetate (OAA) away from combining with acetyl-CoA via TCA cycle citrate synthesis and toward gluconeogenesis. Since the acetyl-CoA doesn’t have much OAA with which to couple, it does itself to make acetoacetate. Ergo, ketosis, and fortunately liver lacks ketolytic apparatus. Brain is singing a different tune. Ketones provide ample acetyl-CoA and are efficiently metabolized in the TCA cycle. Ketolysis is not ketogenesis in reverse, else liver would consume ketones. Teleologically speaking (and I don’t really know what that word means), ketones are meant to spare glucose for the brain by replacing glucose as a fuel for peripheral tissues like skeletal muscle and displacing some brain glucose utilization. The former is vital as one of the few sources of “new” glucose is skeletal muscle amino acids, and they would be exhausted in a short amount of time if skeletal muscle kept burning glucose –> incompatible with survival. Getting some of that fuel from fatty acids, ie, ketones, is just way better. Thus, the “glucose sparing effect of fat-derived fuel.” And by “glucose,” I mean “muscle;” and by “fat-derived fuel,” I mean “ketones.” There are numerous intracellular signaling events and biochemical pathways pwned, but that’s the gist of it. Running brain on ketones considerably impacts amino acid metabolism, or more specifically neurotransmitters. Ketogenic diets –> neuroprotective and improve cognitive function, improve beh Continue reading >>

Why I Drink Bulletproof Coffee

Why I Drink Bulletproof Coffee

I first heard about putting butter in coffee a couple years ago. Only recently, did I first try what everyone now knows as Bulletproof Coffee. I have to tell you, after the first morning, I was hooked! Many cultures have put butter fat in their coffee for centuries. Dave Asprey, learned about the practice while drinking yak butter tea in Tibet. He brought the idea back to the US and experimented until he was able to replicate the fantastic energy boost and mental focus afforded by the mixture. Bulletproof Coffee was born and has swept around the world. What got me hooked? I felt amazing! Bulletproof coffee quickly produces a mild ketosis, which can be combined with regular intermittent fasting. The result is – more daily fat burning, improved mental focus and extended satiety (not feeling hungry). Here’s how it works. What is Ketosis? Humans are kinda like hybrid cars, in that, our bodies can select from two sources of fuel. The first, and go-to, fuel is glycogen. The second is ketone bodies, also called ketones. Most cells in the body can use both glucose and ketone bodies for fuel. The state of burning blood glucose for fuel is called glycolysis. The state of burning ketone bodies is referred to as ketosis. Ketones are a type of fat produced by the liver. They are only present when the body is burning fat for fuel. A person burning ketones is said to be in ketosis. Our bodies enter ketosis and begin burning ketones when liver glycogen has been depleted due to a consistently low level of carbohydrates. But don’t humans require a certain amount of carbohydrates to function? Actually, we don’t. Dr. Perlmutter says, “While we definitely require protein and fat, the human requirement for dietary carbohydrate is none, none whatsoever. In glycolysis, the higher lev Continue reading >>

3 Reasons You Might Want To Ditch That Ketogenic Eating Plan

3 Reasons You Might Want To Ditch That Ketogenic Eating Plan

Ketogenic eating might just be the most popular idea in the unconventional health and fitness movement right now. I get dozens of emails a week from people asking for Keto tips and tricks. I’m not convinced that most of these people should be Keto though. It’s been billed as a great way to lose weight, which has attracted a lot of attention, but it’s not all roses, unicorns, and fairy dust. Here’s three reasons why you might want to reconsider your plan to go Keto… 1. Ketogenic eating is obsessive. When I interviewed Jimmy Moore, author of Keto Clarity, this is one of the issues I brought up. Ketosis is notoriously difficult to get into, verify, and sustain without bringing back some of the old, obsessive Dieting strategies that we’ve been working hard to get away from. Tracking macros, monitoring blood glucose, and testing ketone levels are all required steps in the process for most people. This kind of protocol attracts people with disordered eating habits. It’s the perfect blend of effective, obsessive, and new. If you’re trying to get into ketosis for medical reasons, then you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. If you want to get into ketosis because you heard it’s great for weight loss or for some other non-medical reason, it’s too obsessive for my taste. 2. Ketogenic eating probably doesn’t fit your lifestyle. You know me—I’m not a huge fan of cardio or long workouts. I’m bearish on exercise as a modern concept, but I’m bullish on functional fitness and DWYLT. In other words, I want people to do active things they love with a little sprinting and short functional strength workouts thrown in. In order to actually enjoy those things and feel strong and healthy when doing them, you’ll need adequate glycogen. That’s something that Continue reading >>
