The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Might also want a pre workout shake with some carbs to give you energy for your workout.

    I'd use fish oil rather than flax due to the inefficiency in converting from ALA/LA to DHA/EPA.

    I think some other veggies than green beans or corn would be a better option. Broccoli would be great as it's a decent source of protein.

    Lose the corn. Too starchy and high in carbs.

    Lower protein, add fat. Should be 30% protein, 70% fat. And where is your fiber?

    Because of protein's conversion to glucose. It's the most basic aspect of the ketogenic diet. Protein = 58% glucogenic...kicik you right outta ketosis. Fat = 0% glucogenic.

    Fat keeps most people more satiated anyway.

    As an example, cut out one of the tins of tuna and use full fat mayo on the other?

    What are your current macro breakdowns?

    Interesting, thanks for enlightening me.

    As far as fat keeping people satisfied, BBC's Horizons programme on the Atkins diet concluded that it was possible ketosis had nothing to do with its success, but rather the higher than normal protein content which kept people fuller and made it easier for them to eat less calories.

    Quoting from the transcript:

    NARRATOR: This may be the secret to the Atkins diet. It works by controlling appetite. But what is it about the diet that kills hunger? Dr Atkins believed that it was due to cutting carbohydrates, but as yet evidence for this theory is so far inconclusive. There may be another reason. The Atkins diet is famous for its fat. Dr Atkins said you could eat as much of it as you like. Is it possible that fat could be suppressing appetite? To find out Susan Jebb and her team decided to run an experiment. All the meals in the study looked exactly the same, but there was a big difference. Half the food had liberal quantities of fat secretly added to it.

    Dr SUSAN JEBB: We used things like spaghetti bolognaise or mousses so that you could because easily disguise the fat content of the food.

    NARRATOR: None of the volunteers knew which type of food they were getting. But half of them were eating low fat meals, and half were eating high fat meals.

    Dr SUSAN JEBB: What we told them is they could eat as much or as little as they wanted and they simply just had to ask when they wanted more food.

    NARRATOR: If fat was the magic ingredient that switches appetite off, then the men eating the high fat food would fewer calories than normal to feel full. After four hundred and eighty six meals the results were clear. The fat was having the exact opposite effect. The men on the high fat food needed more calories to satisfy their appetite. They were actually overeating.

    Dr SUSAN JEBB: What we conclude from that is that fat doesn’t make people feel full. It doesn’t trigger the sense of fullness and satiety that we believe is fundamental to appetite control.
    NARRATOR: Professor Astrup was running a study to discover the secret of appetite control. To do this he chose sixty shoppers and split them in to two groups. One group shopped for high carbohydrate food, the other group shopped for food high in protein, similar to the Atkins diet but low in fat.

    Prof ARNE ASTRUP: One group should eat a lot of, of lean meat from shell fish, fish, poultry and lean meat, and dairy products. And the other group should eat a lot of bread, pasta, rice, fruit and vegetables.

    NARRATOR: Both groups were told they could eat as much as they wanted. They should eat to satisfy their appetite just as Dr Atkins advised on his diet. The study ran for a whole year and the results were spectacular.

    Prof ARNE ASTRUP: One of the groups was losing much more than the other group. I say it was four or five kilo more.

    NARRATOR: When they looked more closely it was clear which group had lost so much weight. it was the group eating a diet high in protein. And the shopping lists revealed why.

    Prof ARNE ASTRUP: We could see from the data that the reason why the high protein group had lost more weight was because they had actually consumed fewer calories throughout the study, despite the fact that they had just as the same free access to all the foods they really want to, to eat.

    NARRATOR: At last the mystery of how the Atkins diet works may have been solved. It might have nothing to do with calories being lost. Probably nothing to do with ketosis. And apparently nothing to do with burning more calories. Neither does it seem to be due to gorging on fats. The secret to the diets success may be down to something completely different. Protein makes you feel full. Increasing the amount of protein in the diet may control appetite and make people eat less than they would normally. If this research goes on to be confirmed it will be a major advance for science.
    Would you be more satisfied by a teaspoon of olive oil or a 30g casein shake?

    Dude enjoy keto. How about:

    meal 1 - 6 whole eggs

    meal 2 - hot dogs, bacon

    meal 3 - cheese burger (no bun, obviously)

    meal 4 - hot dogs, bacon

    meal 5 - chicken and oil

    Take your vitamins and fiber.

    Also I wouldn't worry about a meal plan at all. Just make sure each meal is ketogenic. The amount of meals doesn't matter either, or the timing of them. All that crap comes in cuz of carbs...and even then, it's still not really important.

    Pretty much. You do have to get a reasonable amount of calories, but the nature of the diet itself does a good job at doing that for you. My advice is to have a basic idea of what you should be eating, which you already have, and just use it as a guideline. The more important matter is the carb load. You doing a TKD or a CKD?

    most shakes have maybe 2-5g of carbs - unless it is an MRP (which shouldn't be taken on a CKD at all unless it is carb-up time).
    personally i would add mayo or cheese to the lunchmeat slices since it is like eating a saltlick to me with all the sodium. eggs are a great source of food on a keto. you can even add the yolks. make an omelet with cheese and ham as well. mmmmmm.

    personally, i think overall, your EFAs are low. and FIBER is an absolute necessity on a prolonged CKD. you will thank me for that later.
