Look at the ketogenic diet. You can be on it for your entire life. It is a way of eating. And it is one of the best things you can ever do to your body. There is nothing wrong with fats or cholesterol. The real culprit is sugar and they don't want you to know it.

A patient of mine used to have an insane amount of grand mal seizures. Her parents tried everything, from the typical drugs all the way to cannabis oil, but the one thing that finally got her seizures under control was a ketogenic diet.

Do you have a favorite resource for recipes/ meal plans. I do alright diet wise but have heard good things about keto and want to try it out. I get the premise, very low carbs, some vegetables, decent protein and lots of fat.

I thought it all had to do with over eating too many calories. There was that professor who did an experimental diet and ate nothing but Twinkies, a protein Shake and vitamins and he was able to lose weight and had zero side effects in order to prove that calorie intake was the only thing that matters in order to be healthy and that the food pyramid and any other dieting trick is compete bullshit. He didn't recommend it because he felt like he was starving the whole time but he didn't have any insulin issues or anything.

I eat what a diabetic SHOULD eat. Complex carbs, no simple carbs or trans fat. And I train 4 times a week. It's honestly not hard, it's just that when you are fucked by a shitty sugar diet every simple thing becomes ten times harder.

Thank you! I love that someone has a brain and doesn't demonize all carbs. There is a big difference between simple carbs and complex carbs.

Also, people need to understand there is a big difference between heavily processed foods and more traditional foods. This is true even for foods like baked potatoes. This is because of how our bodies digest foods - and what it's digesting. Heavily processed foods require little effort to break down. Which increases immediate and short term uptake AND reduces satiety. Which in turn encourages one to eat more and feel less full. So for example, mashed potatoes are bad. Baked potatoes can be good, so long as they are not over cooked. Which is why the are often provided to Olympic athletes during competitions. They are a complex starch which can provide a slow release of sugars to the body over time. Assuming they are properly prepared.

Ignoring safety considerations, food should only be cook to the point it can be consumed. No more. People need to understand what cooking does. Not only does it draw out sugars, minerals (and salts), making them taste better, but it also breaks open cell walls allowing our digestive track to reap the nutritional benefit of what we consume. But cooking also breaks down protein and starch molecules and chains (which is why, for example, oils break down). This is basically what processed foods do. It's also what our digestive track does. When cooking, we only want cells broken open enough to make the nutrition available. Yet we also want our digestive track to be the instrument of what breaks down the starches and proteins entering our bodies. If the food is already broken down, it reduces the work our body would otherwise do. See comment above.

This is why there is a difference between simple sugars and complex sugars. Why the studies that corn syrup is identical to all other sugars is extremely misleading - albeit accurate. The huge difference is that simple sugars can be instantly absorbed. Whereas complex sugars must be broken down before they are absorbed. It's a function of time. The science only speaks to sugars once they have been converted to simple sugars. Which is why it's both true and very misleading.

I put my self in the hospital by listening to people about eating too much salt, my doctor's advice, eat more salt, so there's a reason I crave salt all the time.

Salmonella bacteria are a leading cause of food poisoning-related hospitalizations and the top cause of food poisoning-related death. Within 12 to 72 hours after infection, the most common symptoms may appear—fever, diarrhea, and severe abdominal cramps. The illness typically lasts four to seven days, but among children and the elderly, the disease can be severe enough to require hospitalization—or funeral arrangements.

Many associate Salmonella with eggs—for good reason. In 2010, for instance, more than half a billion eggs were recalled due to Salmonella outbreaks. Salmonella in eggs may survive scrambled, over-easy, and sunny-side-up cooking methods, as well as in cooked omelets and french toast, and perhaps even in eggs boiled up to eight minutes.

Salmonella concerns aside, some experts suggest that eating even one egg a day may exceed the safe upper limit for cholesterol intake in terms of cardiovascular disease risk. Dietary cholesterol may also contribute to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and cholesterol consumption was found to be a strong predictor of cirrhosis and liver cancer. Those consuming the amount of cholesterol found in two Egg McMuffins or more each day appeared to double their risk of hospitalization or death.

Compared with men who rarely eat eggs, men eating even less than one egg a day appear to have twice the risk of prostate cancer progression. And, men who consume two and a half or more eggs per week—basically an egg every three days—may have an 81 percent increased risk of dying from prostate cancer. How could eating less than an egg a day have such potential impact on cancer risk? The answer may be choline, a compound found concentrated in eggs. The choline in eggs, like the carnitine in red meat, is converted into a toxin called trimethylamine by bacteria existing in meat-eaters’ guts. Trimethylamine, once oxidized in the liver, appears to increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and premature death.

What a complete load of bullshit.

"Can't say eggs are high in protein. 'Cause they're not."

Eggs are little more than protein. That shit you need to grow a damn embryo into a fucking chick.

The protein in them is also 100% biological value. As in there is not one single inaccessible amino in the protein content of an egg. No food other than eggs has 100% usable protein.

"Can't say eggs are nutritious. 'Cause they're not."

See above... fucking moron.

"Can't say eggs are healthy. 'Cause they're not."

Cholesterol is a dietary requirement. Yes, egg will kill you if you subsist on them but then we also need to stop telling people vitamins are healthy. Check out the fucking wonderful effects of hypervitaminosis.

Can't argue with the salmonella issues but they can mostly be avoided by keeping egg shell out of your under cooked eggs. Contents of the egg are almost always safe.

"Yes, egg will kill you if you subsist on them..."

Subsistence depends on the angle of the egg I suppose. Typical diet of average over-weight fucks at any age includes eggs in several forms- not just from hen vag to carton to pan. A single 65% cholesterol egg per day wipes out cholesterol RDA. Add in the reality that most can't resist more than one egg per sitting and the American larder is chock with processed foods both powdered and baked that incorporate egg in various forms. I wager the over-consumption of eggs is damn easy to do even on the toughest of run-of-the-mill diets.

There's a weird guy I knew in school who only ate one hard boiled egg a day and maybe one cup of coffee for a month straight. He lost like 30lbs and got in shit for impersonating himself. Probably not healthy but it would definitely be a good way to get rid of weight fast.

Eggs provide certain essential amino acids (amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and "essential" means you have to get them from an outside source since your body can't manufacture them) that are inconvenient to get from other sources. If you're a bodybuilder, two eggs, four ounces of lean beef and a glass of milk provide pretty much all the protein you need every day. Eggs do have cholesterol, but someone working out every other day will pretty much burn that up. Salmonella is a thing because they crowd the chickens together so it spreads like wildfire, so don't eat them over easy if you don't want to get laid up with food poisoning for a couple days every once in a great while.

Research what traditional cultures ate. Before the processed American way came to them, most cultures were super healthy.

Also, read The Big Fat Lie or listen to the audiobook. It will open your eyes to the corruption in the FDA

A commonality of all human cultures is that once refined sugars are introduced the health of that culture declines.
