What is a Nutritional Ketosis Diet? []

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. This elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood is a state known as ketosis.

Eric’s Kick Start to Ketosis Links

A few weeks into Ketosis Eric sent me a list of articles and podcasts that would get me started and fill in my gaps.  Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, at the time I just new it was right.  My limited knowledge was enough to convince me to go Keto.  Everyday I had new questions, so I alternated between calling Eric and Anthony.  They didn’t mind, mainly because once you go keto, you can’t stop talking about it.    Anyways, I thought I should share Eric’s links. 

If anyone else has other ‘Must Read’ or ‘Must Listen’ to links, send them our way.  ~SKA

First up is Cholesterol stuff:

If you listen to this podcast it will tell you everything you need to know.

The guy talks rather fast but you can read all the same info from a different source at this blog.

It is a bit pedantic but has more detail.


The following podcast is amazing it is Dr. Phinney talking about running and persistence hunting.




The next two are by Dr. Volek and about low carb weight lifting but I think that you know most of the information in them.






I like the website Marks Daily Apple. It's not Keto, more of a paleo take but I like a lot of the material that they put out. Especially the success stories that are publish every Friday. The guy who runs used to be a pro marathoner and triathlete.


You are probably already familiar with Dr. Peter Attia. He has some good blog posts:

I like these ones:


And then there is my fav podcast website, the guy is on holiday for the rest of the month but there are almost daily podcasts from him:


You can just start browsing all the different podcasts he offers on his sub-sites:

  1. FYI That first link in the list is all about cholesterol and not necessarily about ketosis at all.
