Studies Find Ketogenic Diets Promote Longevity and Memory in Mice

Ketogenic diets are this year’s weight-loss silver bullet. While we should approach every diet with a healthy dose of skepticism, the more studies being conducted on ketosis-the state your body enters when producing elevated amounts of ketone bodies, which are constructed via fatty acid metabolism in your liver-the more the benefits are accruing.

The Exercise Myth | Body for Wife

James Fell on FaceBook Sun, Aug 6, 2017:

“For years I’ve extolled the virtues of exercise as a way to control your eating behaviors and sculpt your physique into something that looks great and performs amazing feats. And I have been wrong.”

The Exercise Myth

Even though I smelled bad enough to knock a buzzard off a gut pile, the people in the medical tent of the 2013 Victoria Marathon were kind and caring. One paramedic even let me use his cell to make a long-distance call to my wife, who was watching via Internet…

Paleo is the Scientology of Diets | Body for Wife

The scientific reasoning for the Paleo diet just isn’t there. The “science” the advocates claim just doesn’t hold up to real scrutiny. It’s bullshit in that regard. That said I think if using a “Paleo diet form of thinking“, using it as a metaphor, helps a person achieve a lower caloric intake either by unconsciously adopting a more HFLC type of diet or just eating less (lowering calories in in relationship to calories out) then it can possibly be worked and the cases that are thrown out as anecdotal examples or testimonials that is the real reason it worked, not the bullshit of “Paleo science.”

Paleo is the Scientology of Diets

I was close to landing a fitness interview with Tom Cruise, but then he bailed. And so I am now free to say that Scientology is stupid. People make fun of the space alien aspect of it, but did you know that one of their beliefs is “silent birth?” A.K.A….

I tried the keto diet for 2 months and it made me feel invincible – Business Insider

The Business Insider article says at one point:

The “keto” diet is experiencing a surge in popularity thanks to Silicon Valley tech workers who evangelize its ability to promote weight loss, boost energy, and possibly prolong life itself.

While I am a supporter and believer in the ketogenic (LCHF, Atkins) diet strategy I think one problem I have with that passage is that that kind of reasoning is NOT scientific and abandons critical thinking. It just a different version of the “all the best actresses and models in Hollywood are following this diet” argument.

I tried the ‘Atkins on steroids’ diet for 2 months – and it made me feel invincible

It was 2 o’clock on a Tuesday, and I felt surprisingly awake. Attentive. Even productive. I love my job, but on a normal afternoon, I find myself searching for distractions in the depths of my inbox and on Facebook. That Tuesday in June was different. I knocked out one to-do list item after the next.
