Does Fasting Help Creativity? I Heard After Three Days Of Fasting Your Body Produces Ketones Which Can Help With Creativity. Is This True And Safe?

Does fasting help creativity? I heard after three days of fasting your body produces ketones which can help with creativity. Is this true and safe? Creativity is an undefined and broad concept, so it's impossible to say that anything helps creativity unless you better define creativity so as to be an observably definable and measurably improvable state. Yes, it's true, after three days [of fasting] the [average] body will produce ketones. The inherited wisdom is that it takes the average woman 48 hours and the average man 72 hours to mobilize ketones and up-cycle into ketosis. And these are more generalized rules of thumb than actual immutable facts of direct experience, e.g. individuals that deep fast seasonally can mobilize full ketosis in less than 24 hours. Yes, it's more than safe – fasting is one of the longest retained evolutionary processes universally distributed to most all humans* for self-regulation of health, hygiene and improved well-being required for human survival. Fasting also still serves many cultural, religious and spiritual intents across the world. Fasting is only contraindicated in exceedingly few circumstances across those of the general population: peopl Continue reading >>

    Most animals don't have a mechanism for ketosis. Ketosis is a mechanism to provide energy for the brain. Animal brains do not require as much energy as humans and thus the energy requirements can be fulfilled via gluconeogenesis.

    My cat is on a keto diet (raw food carnivore diet) but ketones are always negative. Here's one of many articles I've read it in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2194504/. I've also talked to my vet about this.
    Cats are not humans. Humans have mechanisms for ketosis why are you assuming all animals do and in response to the same stimuli? Anyone can, yes. Not any animal. That's a big difference.
    Ketosis is ketosis. Even on a protein and fat only diet my cat is not in ketosis. His walnut sized brain doesn't demand it. Cats do get ketostix when diabetic but not just from eating a natural cat diet. I don't like it misrepresented either which is why I don't discuss things when drunk :)

    If you switched the cats diet it wouldn't go into ketosis though. I'm speaking of nutritional ketosis not ketoacidosis. Other animals don't achieve nutritional ketosis but can achieve ketoacidosis, not the same thing.
    And what do you mean that humans should never be in ketosis for extended periods of time? Why?
    You're mixing terms-ketosis and ketoacidosis

How Ketones Affect The Human Body

What Are Ketones? Ketones are waste products which are produced when the human body burns stored fat for energy. If your body has trouble obtaining glucose, it looks towards fat deposits to create energy. People with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus can experience problems with ketones for five reasons: High glucose means your blood insulin level is low and you have excess glucose. Thus, your body will burn fat. As people exercise, they need to burn energy. Lack of insulin or glucose means fat will be burned. Stress can create problems in many facets of our lives. Physical, emotional, and various kinds of stress requires energy to handle the situations. Not enough glucose from this will result in fat being burned. When we become ill, our bodies require increasing amounts of energy to fight the illness. Once again, lack of glucose means fat will be burned. When a woman becomes pregnant, her body needs energy to provide for two. If the diet is not appropriate, the body will turn to fat for energy. What is Ketoacidosis? This is a condition where you become dehydrated and your ketones become elevated. High ketone levels make your blood become acidic, which can cause various chemical imbalances Continue reading >>

    I have been on and off keto for about a year now. Started at 5'10 and 210 and down to 165. I normally eat a vegan diet and have no problem getting and maintaining and erection. I've noticed though when I'm deep into Keto that I feel great, no brain fog and lots of energy but I've been have issues keeping an erection or in general getting turned on without direct stimuli. I've researched around and it seems other people have experienced this as well.
    I'm wondering if I may just be too low of carb. I am thinking about integrating some healthy carbs back into my diet such as beans or something of that sort. My conundrum is like sex and have a partner that does too but I also do not what to go out of keto as I feel confident, out going, and generally great while on it.
    If anyone has had this and found anything to help please let me know! Thank you.
    UPDATE: (maybe NSFW but i'll try to keep it G rated): First of all if you have never eaten a meatless / dairy free diet do not ask someone who is if they are getting enough protein. There is a thing called google if you truly care then research, there are tons of resources and books on the subject, but I highly honestly don't think you will. Protip: maybe ask about B12, as it's hard to find in a vegan diet, I take supplements just incase because it can wreck havoc if you are deficient though it's very hard to be deficient in it.
    Now the possibly NSFW part(tl;dr at end): So took the advice of ate a little more, took double dose of vit d(even though I get a good amount of sun here in Southern OR), and put a little carbs in(split a can of chili with my SO). Usually I am around the lower end of 30-50 carbs. I upped it to about 75. Last night had a little fun time with the lady(she also having a harder time getting aroused). It went well but was still sort of a weaker erection than the norm. So I wake up at 5 am with a cat head and paw resting on my erection. I move him off and spoon him instead trying to go back to sleep. My SO wakes up to pee, feeling a bit sick(sore throat, not sure from carbs or coincidence as it happened while integrating more). I tell her I can't sleep and tell her whats going on and that I'm going to relieve said erection. I pee and waste some time browsing reddit/check email all while still maintaining. This started at 6:00 am. About 6:20 I'm like, "oh yeah I need to take care of this". 6:40 business handled but still erect. Stayed that way until about 7:00 am, as I wrote this it started going down... guess my brain needed to borrow some power.
    TL;DR: Increased calories, vit d, and carbs. Woke up with cat cuddling erection. Maintained for 2 hours.

    Calorie issue! Just one day a week with a massive keto refeed where you stuff yourself with fat and protein. Will fix your libido problem.

Moof's Medical Biochemistry Video Course: http://moof-university.thinkific.com/... In this video, I describe how Ketone Bodies are oxidized for energy. The liver makes ketone bodies that travel through the blood to extrahepatic tissues, where they are oxidized in the mitochondrial matrix to give energy. The pathway begins with D--Hydroxybutyrate, as it is oxidized to Acetoacetate by the same D--Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase reaction (except in reverse). The Acetoacetate is then activated to Acetoacetyl-CoA by -Ketoacyl-CoA Transferase (also known as Thiophorase); this second step takes a Coenzyme A from Succinyl-CoA (an intermediate of the Krebs Cycle). The Acetoacetyl-CoA is then cleaved into two Acetyl-CoA molecules that can go through the Krebs Cycle to be oxidized, resulting in energy that cell can use. Ultimately, the liver is basically sending Acetyl-CoA that it isnt metabolizing to other tissues (by way of Ketone Bodies in the blood) so that those other tissues can utilize the Acetyl-CoA. However, sometimes, the extrahepatic tissues do not oxidize the ketone bodies rapidly enough to keep up with the pace at which they are arriving from the blood. This is a problem described

What Are Ketone Bodies And Why Are They In The Body?

If you eat a calorie-restricted diet for several days, you will increase the breakdown of your fat stores. However, many of your tissues cannot convert these fatty acid products directly into ATP, or cellular energy. In addition, glucose is in limited supply and must be reserved for red blood cells -- which can only use glucose for energy -- and brain tissues, which prefer to use glucose. Therefore, your liver converts many of these fatty acids into ketone bodies, which circulate in the blood and provide a fuel source for your muscles, kidneys and brain. Video of the Day Low fuel levels in your body, such as during an overnight fast or while you are dieting, cause hormones to increase the breakdown of fatty acids from your stored fat tissue. These fatty acids travel to the liver, where enzymes break the fatty acids into ketone bodies. The ketone bodies are released into the bloodstream, where they travel to tissues that have the enzymes to metabolize ketone bodies, such as your muscle, brain, kidney and intestinal cells. The breakdown product of ketone bodies goes through a series of steps to form ATP. Conditions of Ketone Body Utilization Your liver will synthesize more ketone bod Continue reading >>

    I know there's lots of short ladies out there like me that have low calorie requirements... I'm looking for meal ideas....
    I find that alot of the keto recipes I find add up quick in calories! Especially if I want to make a keto-friendly bun, once I add the bun to a bacon cheese burger the calories are almost half my daily allowance!
    (I'm not eating bacon cheese burgers all the time, just an example)

    Zucchini noodle with meat sauce: 1 small/medium zucchini, 4 ounces ground beef (85% lean), tomato/basil sauce (found the lowest carb I could find, 6 net carb per half cup), 1 TBSP parmesan cheese. 400 calories, 21g fat, 11 net carbs, 35g protein.
    Zucchini noodle alfredo style: 1 small/medium zucchini, 1.75 oz bacon ends, 1/4th cup alfredo sauce, 1/4th TBSP butter. 400 calories, 39g fat, 4 net carbs, 7.3g protein.
    Bacon ends/pieces and eggs, which reheat well enough that I take it to work for lunch if I'm in a pinch for time: 1oz bacon ends, 2 eggs, 1/2 TBSP heavy cream, 1/2 TBSP butter. 370 calories, 34g fat, 1 carb, 15g protein.

    Ketones are a beneficial product of fat metabolism in the body. When carbohydrate intake is restricted, it lowers blood sugar and insulin levels.
