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.

Next Week 48 Hours in the Slammer


Ok, so I'm not going to jail, but I am going into the metabolic chamber at the hospital as part of a study. This will be my 4th time locked away in the steel vault. It is actually really cool, I get a treadmill, stationary bike, weight set, tv/dvd, computer, and bed / toilet. While the study is designed to calibrate medical test equipment the data I get as a participant is exact calorie expenditures, and RQ for daily living and exercise activities. The best part is I get to eat what I want which means keto!

Until recently there was a carniceria situated near the hospital that sold pork skins so big that I affectionately called them Meat Watermelons. Sadly the place was demolished to put in a light rail before I could get a picture of them. This weekend I was out on business errands and found another place that sells slightly smaller misshapen versions of them. These things are perhaps the most delicious food in the world.

Length is about 5". The Meat Watermelons were exactly like a 11" long 2"x2" curved slice of watermelon.

In the last week many of my friends have been talking about going out to dim sum and I realized that there basically isn't a single item on the carts that would be keto friendly, not to mention keto-paleo friendly. So when I noticed that my local whole paycheck has a new freezer with local pasture raised organic nasty other bits I bought some chicken feet and made my own Dim sum.

Leftovers for breakfast the next day. The taste was 100% spot on. I guarantee the finest Dim sum gourmand couldn't tell it was a keto replica.

Lastly a few weeks ago FASTER delivered yet more lipid results. These ones were taken before during and after the run. I'll admit that I don't know much about many of the sub fractions listed. Hopefully someone out there on the internet can appreciate it.
