The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Ketonic Diets

    This a high fat diet, with a moderate protein and a very low carbohydrate intake. A typical ketogenic meal includes a small amount of protein, a source of natural fats (for example, butter, cream sauce, olive oil, or coconut oil) and some green leafy vegetables.

    If somebody have result with this type of diet please share with us!

    Plenty of research on ketogenic diets out there, they've only been around since 1918 (officially). I've gone from 464 to 280 using cyclical approaches, always very low carb, mixing up the time frames of the keto and such.

    I went on a keto/paleo type diet last summer. Went from 230lb to 200lb in 5 months.

    I strived for a 50/50 ratio of fat to protein, and probably ended up with the protein intake being higher than fat, simply because I didn't want to supplement fat. IE, I would grill up a steak for dinner, and not worry about adding oils or tricking it out. That's more protein than fat.

    I'm not sure if a higher fat level is a good idea. This is even more true for Those of us who lift.
    The reason why the diet works and you are less likely to hit the wall and raise your body's metabolic digestive efficiency (for creating calories to store) is because of the conversion of your metabolism to keto-genesis (conversion of energy from fat) and gluconeogenesis (energy from protein) away from carbohydrate metabolism that we are all typically on in the SAD (standard american diet) which converts energy from carbs and sugars.
    I am not a nutritionist, but in my limited understanding of a keto diet, if your fat intake ratio gets too high, the liver still tries to convert protein into energy by robbing the body's protein stores. This is bad for obvious reasons. The ideal situation is to provide enough protein for this as well as for sustaining growth and recuperation, and provide the fat intake to maintain the reliance on ketone metabolism for energy, so that between meals when ingested fat lowers, your system searches for the fat stores on the body to metabolize instead.

    To two great things about this diet that i have noticed are, first, unlike any other diet or program I have been on, belly fat doesn't wait until last to leave. Ketogenesis really seems to prefer adipose visceral fat. But this is just my personal experience.
    The second thing is a noticeable reduction in digestive tract inflammation and gas production. Yeast and other natural flora that metabolize carbohydrates produce CO2 and other gases as byproducts. One week after quitting the diet, I regretted it.
