[Preview] Achieve ketosis through fasting — Ivor Cummins
Is ketones going down
really such a big problem?
Yes, then you’re into the whole how
important is it to stay and sustain ketosis.
Now we know that a very keto,
very low-carb is very beneficial
for people with insulin resistance
and diabetes and insulin resistant obesity.
So it is a good idea to try
and stay in ketosis for those people
but more insulin sensitive
may not get near the benefits
of staying in hard ketosis.
So again, it depends on the person.
I personally would focus on getting into
ketosis through meal skipping and fasting.
So myself and Dr. Gerber stay low-carb,
we’re moderate protein,
possibly high-ish protein from the meat,
fish eggs and all those things that we eat,
grass fed of course and pastured,
but we tend to get into ketosis
by not doing something, by not eating.
So keep low-carb and then spread out
your meal intervals to burn your body fat.
And to be honest under those
circumstances of a low-carb regime
where you’re mainly going towards ketosis
by fasting and intermittent fasting,
I really don’t think the data shows that
moderate or even significant protein
causes a major problem there.
And I wouldn’t be quite so worried
except for the exception I said about people
who have sensitive physiologies.
And even then it’s more about disease
rather than kind of weight loss.
