Dr. Peter Attia: Hack, Liar And All Round Disgusting Individual

Dr. Peter Attia: Hack, Liar and All Round Disgusting Individual Apparently Peterand his buddy Gary Taubes just love themselves some crappy pseudoscience. Both of them are funded by the Arnold Foundation, with substantial ties to animal agriculture industry lobbying. Marion Nestle notes the Arnoldsworking relationship witha National Restaurant Association and the National Cattlemens Beef Association consultant. So lets go over the bogus arguments in this hour long lecture of idiocy. He starts off by citing a Siri-Tarino et al. Am J Clin Nutr. 2010 study , saying no significant evidence could be found showing saturated fat intake is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) or cardiovascular disease (CVD). The Siri-Tarino meta-analysis only looked at prospective epidemiological studies. Weve known since the 1970s that epidemiological studies dont have the statistical power to show an association between saturated fat intake and heart disease. The only studies that have the power to show the relationship come from dietary change experiments. Cross-sectional epidemiological studies are expected to show a zero-correlation due to the wide variability of baseline Continue reading >>

    Don't take it the wrong way, I don't try to offend anyone. I'm just a bit curious and would love if you enlighten me up.
    From what I read, your brain could only receive energy from carbs. So when people go ketogenic and lower massively they carbs, where they get the energy for thinking?

    I'm not trying to say that they don't use the brain or don't think much. I'm just wondering how it works.

  2. nwthomas

    During ketosis the liver uses fat to produce chemicals called ketone bodies, which can provide energy to many types of tissues which would otherwise take glucose. The brain can adapt to get about 75% of its energy from ketone bodies. The remaining 25% must come from glucose. If the person is still ingesting a little bit of carbs, these will mostly go to the brain. If they aren't ingesting enough carbs to meet the brain's needs, the liver will transform protein into glucose through a process called gluconeogenesis.

    9 some people report feeling tired and mentally sluggish when in ketosis, while other people report that they actually feel more alert and mentally acute. I don't think anybody really knows why that would happen.

  3. Veretiel

    Thank you.
    It's amazing how the body adapts to different situations.

    I suppose that puts an extra stress on the liver, so what are the benefits of ketosis?

The Peter Attia Approach To Dieting For Endurance Athletes (part One)

The Peter Attia Approach to Dieting for Endurance Athletes (Part One) Ill start by declaring my bias from the outset. Im a fan of Dr. Peter Attia . So I was flattered when asked by TrainingPeaks to write this blog post, and even more honored when Peter granted permission for me to take on the task. However, please note that while Peters fine with me trying to tackle the topic, it does not imply his endorsement of the approaches in this article. Herein begins a two-part blog post to try to do the topic of low carbohydrate/high fat dieting justice. I first stumbled across Dr. Attias work during my own experimentation with lowering carbohydrates in my diet and when trying to understand the positive effects I observed it having on my blood pressure, fat oxidation and endurance performance. Like Stephen Phinney, Jeff Volek, and Tim Noakes, Peter is a pioneer in this area, and has an extensive website that details his work at EatingAcademy.com. Peter is a physician, a researcher, former ultra-endurance swimmer and cycling time trialist who continues to forge new ground in the areas of health and longevity. He has a super interesting background. A fellow Canadian, Peter took a different Continue reading >>

    Thought I'd document my efforts here, if anyone is interested. Using what I know (or think I know) about nutritional ketosis, I'm going to try it very strictly for 28 days (4 weeks) and see where I end up. If I'm at all successful, I'll likely continue for another couple weeks.
    Weight: 170
    Height: 5' 7"
    Abs Showing: Upper
    BF: Unknown
    [I don't know my body fat, I'm going to use calipers tonight for it. I'll update tomorrow with that. I'm really only interested in getting my abs more visible--currently my upper abs are showing a little, the lower ones are hidden--so the mirror test takes priority over calipers for me.]
    So the plan is to eat <50g of carbs, <120g protein, and the rest fat each day. I'm not worried about calorie count, never have been, and at this point I'm not measuring my foods either. Hahaha, we'll see how this goes.
    I do plan on daily WoDs as much as 6 days per week, but already I find I'm tired while starting this diet. I workout in the mornings and it's difficult waking up before 6am. I blame the lack of carbs, but I'm also fairly sure I just need to adapt, so I'll monitor morning energy as I go.
    As for nutrition on workout days, I'll have a banana immediately after the workout to replenish glycogen, but not so much as to fall out of ketosis. I know that one high-carb meal can take me out of ketosis for the next 3 days, so I'm going to be very careful about cheating.
    Ok, I'll let everyone know how it goes.

  2. Paulo Santos

    The fact that you are not tracking your calories will be a total failure. If you don't get the results you want, how do you know it isn't because you were eating too many calories?

  3. Adam Shreim

    I think the usual prescription for a keto diet is 15-30g of Carbs, per day.

Peter Attia is a relentless self-experimenter, obsessed with the idea of a "quantified self." In the presentation he will share two components of his physical transformation as he evolved from "fit but fat and metabolically deranged" to "fit, lean, and metabolically dialed in." In particular, Peter will focus on the possible advantages of a ketogenic diet, and in the process share much of what he's learned implementing it in himself and hundreds of others over the past two years. Peter is the President and co-founder of the Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI), a California-based 501(c)(3). Peter is also a physician and former McKinsey & Company consultant, where he was a member of both the corporate risk and healthcare practices. Prior to his time at McKinsey, Peter spent five years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a general surgery resident, where he was the recipient of several prestigious awards and the author of a comprehensive review of general surgery. Peter also spent two years at the National Institutes of Health as a surgical oncology fellow at the National Cancer Institute under Dr. Steve Rosenberg, where his research focused on the role of regulatory T cells in cancer re

Ketosis Advantaged Or Misunderstood State? (part I)

Ketosis advantaged or misunderstood state? (Part I) In part I of this post I will see to it (assuming you read it) that youll know more about ketosis than just about anyone, including your doctor or the majority of experts out there writing about this topic. Before we begin, a disclaimer in order: If you want toactuallyunderstand this topic, you must invest the time and mental energy to do so. You really have to get into the details. Obviously, I love the details and probably read 5 or 6 scientific papers every week on this topic (and others). I dont expect the casual reader to want to do this, and I view it as my role to synthesize this information and present it to you.But this is not a bumper-sticker issue. I know its trendy to make blanket statements ketosis is unnatural, for example, or ketosis is superior but such statements mean nothing if you dont understand the biochemistry and evolution of our species. So, lets agree to let the unsubstantiated statements and bumper stickers reside in the world of political debates and opinion-based discussions. For this reason, Ive deliberately broken this post down and only included this content (i.e., background) for Part I. Ketosis is Continue reading >>
