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.

Trying Glutathione and Revisiting Potential Allergies


I was given a small sampler of reduced glutathione and I've been experimenting with it pre workout. It seems to be reducing the perceived effort but doesn't appear to increase overall performance. It seems like it might play a role on days when you don't feel motivated but are otherwise in fine shape for a difficult workout.

I've started taking night classes for a Wilderness First Responder and EMT certification. If there is one thing that the instructors have drilled into my head it is to not use latex gloves (use nitrile). Why is this important to keto? Well several of the instructors have developed  latex allergies over the years of working EMS. They now carry 3 epi pens each to keep from dying if they accidentally touch latex. Eggs, specifically the whites, have the potential to create allergies either on their own or by conveying other substances eaten by the chicken. Many of us eat lots of eggs so it may be something to lookout for. What is the science behind this, well I haven't read up on the published studies myself but I do have some anecdotes from my 4H backyard chicken club. The discussion came up when I mentioned the custom feed that I created and order with a small buyers club. I don't include any wheat, soy, or corn and have a 1:1 omega 3:6 ratio in my feed. It turns out that one of the club members is crazy allergic to store bought eggs but isn't for the eggs from her own soy fee chickens (she is allergic to soy products). Another members wife was allergic to shellfish and after feeding oyster shells (common practice) to her chickens rapidly became allergic to eggs. You are what you eat eats?
