This is a summery of the video
- We are obligate fat burners
- Reducing carb load is a good thing (0-100g carbs per day is good, you don't need more than 150g)
- Occasionally going into ketosis is a good thing
- If you are not lactose intolerant, you can enjoy some dairy (cream, butter, yoghurt, cheeses)
- GIVE UP GRAINS
.. The face that you can survive on grains doesn't mean you can thrive on grains.
.. Gave up grains and artritis/IBS/sinus infections went within 30 days.
.. provide a huge insulin load = bad
- ON SUGAR
.. Keep total glucose load in a day low
.. Trying to lose weight - fruit is not your friend, don't use sweeteners
.. table suger is evaporated canejuice so you can argue that table sugar is PALEO
.. Brain wants to reduce glucose load
.. Takes a while to be able to access ketones in a good way
- He said he enjoys every meal he has and that is one of his goals.
- "I can make a case for being a ketogenic athlete" - big statement. He says it's all about being able to access the ketones building the machinery to do that in the body. You are still making ketones when you are taking in carbs..
- "As of now I don't see any dangers of going really low carb"
.. I don't like how he says "as of now". Seems like guesswork? Then again, who knows.
- He takes 100g of carbs per day.
- Never exceeds 3,000 calories per day.
- You don't need that much protein.
- Talks about reorienting your metabolism to be more efficient and use the calories you take in. He seems to be saying that lowering metabolism is a good thing. Lowering thyroid function is a good thing. This is a good hypothesis. I agree that you don't have to be eating loads every day.
6.30am - wake up, big cup of coffee + sugar, start work
10.30am - Primal Fuel (what is this??)
Lunch - BAS
7pm - Glass red wine + dinner (some form of grilled meat + vegetable + maybe cheese and chocolate)
10.30 - bed
I may go through the 21 day total body transformation program. I am getting that book now.
