Hey everyone, I was hoping to get your perspective on something. I'm not usually a low carber (had a bad experience with VLC a year ago), but I've been really, really bloated lately and nothing seems to be helping. So I decided to cut my carbs a little, just to drop some water weight.
The weird thing is that I dropped into ketosis after just a day of low carbing. But it's different to how it was before - I feel calm, as opposed to like a maniac, when I was VLC. I'm experiencing the appetite suppression, which I never had when I was VLC.
I'm guessing this is cos' 1) I have more body fat now than when I did it last year, 2) I'm not under eating this time?
Anyway, the weird thing is - I'm not trying to be keto, so I ate some california roll sushi yesterday, but I'm still in ketosis. I was under the impression that as soon as you have something significantly carby you get knocked out? That was always my experience when I did keto before.
Thanks for your help!
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
