Sounds like a standard diet for the Mexican in your life.

Hot dog with mayonnaise......disgusting as well

It's called a ketogenic diet, nearly no calories from carbs (
 
2013-02-01 07:31:30 AM
Damn it, mobile phone.

You ingest very few calories from carbs (less than 5%)
The idea is that the release of ketones, which happens when your body is in ketogenesis (getting energy from stored fats) curbs seizures, but I don't know why that occurs.

All I know is once I got past about 2 weeks with "keto flu" in which my body was adjusting to using fewer carbs, I have lost 13 lb with minimal exercise (walk 3 miles a day to and from classes, 1 hour cardio twice per week) and excellent calorie/nutrition control.

Www.reddit.com/r/keto is full of awesome info.

Surprisingly no.  My diet consists of eggs, bacon, pork roasts, cheese, chicken, avocados, butter, heavy cream, sausage, olives, steaks, and non-starchy vegetables.  Been doing it for a year.  I eat 2500 calories a day, lost 60 pounds, and my bloodwork is all perfect (including cholesterol).  I can't really explain it, but it works.

Best part is I used to eat bread, rice, potatoes, sugar, baked goods and all sorts of carb-heavy stuff.  Was diagnosed as "pre-diabetic" for years.  Last 10 months my blood sugar has been solid as a rock.  I don't care what the diet/nutrition talking heads say.  Carbs are evil.

Exactly, I follow a modified paleo diet - high fat, medium protein, lowish carbs. I put heavy cream in my coffee every day, eat Organic bacon or sausage almost daily, cook eggs in butter daily, eat full fat yoghurt, home made chicken soup broth and round out my eating with a fair amount of fruits and veg. Alittle bit of wine.

I feel great, have been steadily losing weight the whole time. I've gone from being a size 16 to a size 10. Got called "skinny" a few times lately. A high fat diet works well if you keep to a very low low level your grains/potatoes/rice/etc.

Everybody is different. I tried a vegan diet years ago and it made me feel horrible. Bacon is just better for me but it's not for everyone.

Maybe it has something to do with that people weren't meant to eat so many refined carbohydrates. Carbohydrates cause a rapid spike in blood sugar, the body has to produce insulin to counteract the spike and your body will store some of that extra energy as fat. Blood sugar then plummets making people feel hungry again. High carbohydrate diets aren't healthy. I disagree with the government's suggestion that we should eat 6-11 servings of carbohydrates each day. How does consuming that much of your diet as carbs leave any room for fruits or vegetables or even protein?

It doesn't matter if bread's whole grain or not, it will spike your blood sugar in nearly identical amounts. Whole wheat bread has a glycemic index of about 71, white bread has a glycemic index of about 72. Both of these will leave you feeling hungry shortly after you eat them, one just helps you stay "regular" better because of the moderately higher fiber amount. Most whole wheat breads I've seen only have around 2g fiber and range from 21g to 25g total carbohydrates. The stuff I get is 5g fiber for two slices and 19g carbs. It's the lowest carb with the highest fiber I could find. It also only has 90 calories for two slices of bread.

Humans did not eat carbs in high quantities until we developed agriculture, and carbs have grown increasingly refined over time. In the past twenty five years or so we've started adding HFCS to seemingly everything. The things I think are making Americans fat is the extra snacking we started doing, mostly on high carb items and increased portion sizes combined with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

Your blood work is probably good because you're actually eating more like people did a long time ago. Fat is excessively demonized when it's not the problem so much. Fat's harder to break down than sugar is, even though it's more calorie dense. It takes a long time to break down and it increases satiety when you eat it. People don't just take animal fat and store it directly as fat in their cells, we don't have cow fat cell storage pockets.  Insulin, LDL and triglycerides all go up with high carb diets. Spikes in blood sugar cause fat storage, and abdominal fat storage is particularlybad for you. Ketogenic diets reduce LDL cholesterol and increase HDL. How could a diet that reduces triglycerides, increases HDL and reduces LDL and minimizes insulin spikes be bad for you? All of these things combined reduce fat storage, reduce sugar crash spurred food cravings and improve blood test markers of health.

What people should be eating is a low carb, high fiber, moderate fat diet. This comes from eating meat and fruit and vegetables. Bread has only been consumed by people for about four thousand years, it's not something we were meant to be eating. I still eat bread, but I do try to minimize how much I eat. When cooking meals for my family, the plate typically is one third lean meat, two thirds fruit and vegetables.
I still eat lean meat because I think that's more accurate to hunter gatherer days. I don't think they ate meat that was highly fatty as the animals were not standing on a farm being fed to get fattened. They were lean like a wild deer or elk because they had to be fast to stay away from predators.

My body will get veeerrryy pissy if I don't eat enough meat. Not vegetable proteins, either--my mother eats like that, and every time I eat like her, I end up with meat (hot, well-cooked meat, anyway) feeling like chocolate when I'm PMSing.

'Course, I'm fat and don't give a fark, but I know what you're saying. Some bodies metabolize proteins\fats from meat better than from vegetables.

Ha! I just started keto diet because I'm on epileptic meds, though I'm not epi. I finished a 24 hour fast for the jump start, already entered ketosis according to the ketostix. I'm not really overweight since I exercise and eat right but I figured that this could get me off my meds eventually. I just don't know if I'm going to be able to go without nachos, lo mein, popcorn, dark homemade bread, yogurt, or fruit. Under 20 carbs a day is crazy, but then so am I.

I know a couple of people who have their kids on this diet. It's very unappetizing.

I don't think sausages should be on the menu, however. There are lots of things in sausages, like fillers, and those may have carbs.

I don't buy the idea we humans aren't evolved to eat carbs.  We already have smaller teeth and jaws than other primates due to the invention of fire. Remember that there was gathering to go with the hunting and lots of roots have carbs in them.

I've been researching phospatydelserine for my own purposes (weaning off of benzodiazepines). It's a type of fat (I believe) that is present in the brain and you can supplement with. It's supposed to enhance benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, which are related to the GABA system. In the absence of that system working well, a person would have seizures (one of the side effects of withdrawing from benzodiazepines). And then there's the research showing that fish oil works as well as antidepressants in treating depression.

I say all this to wonder if there is a relation between eating a high-fat diet and increasing the levels of lipids in the brain. Or maybe it's entirely unrelated, and it just is a metabolic thing.

Anyhow, I'm glad it's working for the girl; although, I do feel sorry for her. That sounds like one of the worst diets I could imagine. It would feel so unrefreshing, for lack of a better (or real) word. Sometimes you just need a good piece of fruit.

We are evolved to eat carbs. We have insulin and the brain runs on glucose and the muscles store glycogen.The general belief that I hear about this is that we have two engines for energy: glucose and fat. Modern carbs just spike inslin too fast because fiber is removed. Inslin spikes leads to other side effects because insulin acts as a multi-function hormone.

No, you can go as high fat as you'd like as long as you get the good fats. If your fat sources are vegetable/corn/soyabean oil and fat products from animals fed with corn, then it's not good fat.I have been tracking my food and it's amazing to see that over the past year, I have eaten less than 200 different kinds of food. And, that number with also a lot of double counting because of different brands of the same product. The food choices we make are much less than we think.
