  • "Just submitted our latest manuscript entitled "A plant-based, low-fat diet decreases ad libitum energy intake compared to an animal-based, ketogenic diet: An inpatient randomized controlled trial". I'm looking forward to all constructive comments!" --Kevin Hall 20 people, weight stable, non-diabetic. Spent two weeks…
  • Case report Reversal of Cardiac Hypertrophy With a Ketogenic Diet in a Child With Mitochondrial Disease and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Source
  • Re: Katz again. "But as many pointed out, Katz is not an epidemiologist. Instead, he specializes in nutrition advice, and has published a number of dietary books, including The Way to Eat, Cut Your Cholesterol and Stealth Health. Katz’s piece was shared widely among conservatives, including by Fox News host and informal…
  • Also keep in mind with the recommended adequate intakes "it is unknown how the AI relates to actual requirements" so as long as you're eating a nutritious diet, are healthy and don't have any signs of deficiency there's probably even less cause for concern, IMO. To answer the question though, I frequently read people say…
  • These sorts of statements are particularly unhelpful because they're not true. OP, if you feel you would benefit from a low carb or ketogenic diet but don't need/want to eliminate favorite foods maybe you don't have to--log them and see. I have no problem incorporating higher carb fruits, vegetables, grains and starches…
  • Keto heart attack anecdote: "Someone I know (female, 37yrs) who is on keto and exercising hard to lose weight had a heart attack (she's ok!! In hospital recovering) And people are jumping to point the finger at keto for causing it - should I be worried at all?" Exceedingly rare to read anything like this but worth…
  • A Randomized Controlled Trial of a 6-month low carbohydrate intervention on disease progression in men with recurrent prostate cancer: Carbohydrate and Prostate Study 2 (CAPS2) Both weight loss and low carbohydrate diets (LCD) without weight loss prolong survival in prostate cancer (PC) models. Few human trials tested…
  • This is what I use: Beef - Ground, 80% lean meat / 20% fat, patty, cooked, broiled (hamburger) For hamburgers I use the cooked weight just because I think it's probably more accurate than the "yield from 1/4 pound raw meat" option for hamburger patties under the raw option.
  • Effects of a ketogenic diet in overweight women with polycystic ovary syndrome. RESULTS: After 12 weeks, anthropometric and body composition measurements revealed a significant reduction of body weight (- 9.43 kg), BMI (- 3.35), FBM (8.29 kg) and VAT. There was a significant, slightly decrease of LBM. A significant…
  • Dietary saturated fat intake and risk of stroke: Systematic review and dose–response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies •Higher dietary saturated fat intake is associated with a decreased overall risk of stroke. •There is a linear dose–response relation between dietary saturated fat intake and the risk of stroke.…
  • Reduced Glucose Tolerance and Skeletal Muscle GLUT4 and IRS1 Content in Cyclists Habituated to a Long-Term Low-Carbohydrate, High-Fat Diet. We conclude that well-trained cyclists habituated to an LCHF diet had reduced glucose tolerance compared with matched controls on a mixed diet. Lower skeletal muscle GLUT4 and IRS1…
  • I don't eat foods that are easy (for me) to overeat by thousands of calories on a regular basis now and I don't snack. I do eat a lot of beef now--pretty much for every meal. Hamburger, roasts and steaks are my staples. I've always liked and ate fruits, nuts and vegetables so that hasn't changed. Good food habits and…
  • Leading Scientists Agree: Current Limits on Saturated Fats No Longer Justified “There is no strong scientific evidence that the current population-wide upper limits on commonly consumed saturated fats in the U.S. will prevent cardiovascular disease or reduce mortality. A continued limit on these fats is therefore not…
  • Important roles of dietary taurine, creatine, carnosine, anserine and 4-hydroxyproline in human nutrition and health The present review provides the public with the much-needed knowledge of nutritionally and physiologically significant amino acids, dipeptides and creatine in animal-source foods (including beef). This work…
  • To treat or not to treat Alzheimer's disease by the ketogenic diet? That is the question. Several pilot studies in patients with AD have shown that supplementation with ketogenic diet improves cognitive function, verbal memory, mood, affect, self-care, daily activities, visual attention and working memory (Taylor et al.,…
  • Macros make a big difference for me but that's not all that matters. I don't eat foods that are easy to overeat by thousands of calories on a regular basis. I don't snack. I also don't eat until I'm physically hungry. If I eat when I'm not really hungry I don't feel especially satisfied or satiated and there's always the…
  • Baby-formula sales are slumping, so the companies that make it have turned to supplements for 3-year-olds. as infant-formula sales have slumped in recent years, baby-formula companies are starting to see toddler milk as their next move as well. Toddler milk is the fastest-growing category of breast-milk substitutes,…
  • Inuit metabolism revisited: what drove the selective sweep of CPT1a L479? Recent hypotheses predict that this variant may have been selected in response to possible detrimental effects of chronic ketosis in communities with very low carbohydrate consumption. Assessing these hypotheses alongside several alternative…
  • Pretty sure there's been some association with increased mortality and salt restriction so this tweet caught my eye. "Salt restriction worsened death and #heartfailure rehospitalization in HF patients @pacificheart by Dr. Richard Wright." Supporting science is thin at best right now I think--IDK? Some links in the thread…
  • I don't think protein powder is viewed that way--bars and shakes are not mainstream meals. It's not sold in the meat case--it's in the diet, supplement, and health isles/stores. The aim is not to create/satisfy a niche market with these alternate proteins. Have you read this from EAT-Lancet? "However, the scale of change…
  • I think protein powders are seen more as a supplement than a replacement food--or at least that's my impression.
  • To be fair, a lot of the concern is because animal foods are nutritious, staple foods. When you replace them with ultra processed/novel foods there's good reason for caution. When you see how much money is being spent to create this market it's even more concerning.
  • If you responded well to a keto diet I don't see any reason why you couldn't eat carnivore for a period of time. My only concern would be making sure you weren't relying solely on canned or dried meat the entire 5 months you were away--if fresh meat isn't available I'd supplement if it were me. I tried eating only meat for…
  • This is becoming a thing. Here's another study with improved kidney function. Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet: A Safe and Effective Tool for Weight Loss in Patients With Obesity and Mild Kidney Failure. A prospective observational real-life study was conducted on ninety-two patients following a VLCKD for approximately 3…
  • Don't drink sugar. Fructose and hepatic insulin resistance In this review, we present the data invoking fructose intake with development of hepatic insulin resistance in human studies and discuss the pathways by which fructose impairs hepatic insulin action in experimental animal models. First, we described…
  • Re: Katz, Willett, and Hu disgrace themselves once again Backlash Over Meat Dietary Recommendations Raises Questions About Corporate Ties to Nutrition Scientists The True Health Initiative (THI) is a nonprofit founded and headed by David Katz, MD. The group’s website describes its work as “fighting fake facts and combating…
  • When I log my food I let calories end up where they end up and eat to my appetite too. Some days I eat more and some days I eat less but I tend to end up under eating if I try to stick to a calorie target. The days that I'm hungry I need to eat more--sometimes a lot more to balance out the days I'm not very hungry and eat…
  • Whole eggs and butter. Oops I misunderstood. I'd have a snack: meat & cheese, nuts & fruit or maybe some veggies & dip.
  • I always hated to see any numbers turn red too so would set custom goals. So if I usually eat 4,000mg of sodium I might set my limit to 5,000mg. That way I still get that visual red cue if I'm deviating from my normal, healthful eating pattern but not getting dinged daily. Others just track something else instead like…
