Keto works. Works for me, for sure. As a diet it's effective because you aren't as hungry as you'd be on just caloric restriction alone.
It's not something to do long-term.
It's a tool.
Keto is a way to teach your body to burn fat. Fasting is how you actually burn significant amounts of fat. Nobody got time to lose 1-2 lbs a week. You can lose 1-2 lbs per day depending on activity level, while boosting HGH by fasting
You can go Keto or just cut the grains, sugar, vegetable oils and get most of the same benefits
Depends on the grains, 100% whole wheat grains are fine but definitely cut out white bread and anything that contains enriched flour.
I think wheat in general is pretty bad. Glyphosate, gluten, very inflammatory... but it depends on the person
The benefits to a gluten free, high cholesterol diet go way beyond fat loss.
You make a great point about activity level.
A pound of fat is about 3500 calories. You can burn around 2000 just by sitting on your butt all day. Actually do something with your day and losing a pound in 24hr is easy

True story. I lost 70lbs by fasting.
Anyways, as I've said before. Ketogenic diets are okay for short term weight loss goals or for those who don't do HI workouts. For those who live a sedentary life or whose workouts are as intense, it could be okay in the short term. But the fact is our bodies are designed to run off of glucose for a reason. While there are some genetic limitations, proper caloric intake combined with a varied exercise program, adequate sleep, and proper supplementation is a much easier and healthier approach to sustainable weight loss
All I know is I lost 70lbs in 3 months by intermittently fasting and eating vegetarian every other day.
I went from size 38 to 31
I've lost nearly 40 lbs and have maintained the majority of my strength since then 😎
Having an active job helps too. I was behind a desk, now I’m a blue collar A/C guy.
>Not deciding how to eat based on the evolutionary diet of white people
True. Go full Paleo.
b but your brain burns glucose before anything else! That means it's the preferred fuel source
>eating anything other than whole eggs
Imagine you're a Cro-Magnon in the middle of a European winter. You aren't living a sedentary lifestyle and you sure as hell aren't running on glucose.
I mean if you're eating a diet filled with fruits and vegetables that were often forged, then yeah you were
And there's a reason why populations with more varied diets tend to be healthier
Carbohydrate intake doesn't mean you should be scarfing down simple sugars
>fruits and vegetables in the middle of winter
>these weren't stored for the winter
>Not 20,000 years ago, no
I dunno how I feel about basing my entire strategy off the species that lost
Trump is on his way to my hometown, do I flyer the area ?
All I know is that consuming low glycemic carbs one day of the week is enough for me.
These Amerindians seem to be winning, let's all eat like them
