you seem to have very little understanding of nutrition and metabolism, bruh
>>
>>35142407

Namely carbohydrates and vitamin C compete on the same metabolic pathways in the body. That means if we take a lot of foods containing sugar and starch must be taken more foods containing vitamin C to vitamin C "wins" sugar. Hence the need for vitamin C is high only when we eat a "standard" diet with lots of carbohydrates and grains. Reducing intake of sugar and starch, it reduces our need for vitamin C. The animals, unlike humans, capable of providing vitamin C, and their meat contains small amounts of this vitamin. We drop the carbs from your diet, getting enough vitamin C in cooked meat and lightly grease.

Anthropologist Vilhjalmur Stefansson studied in the early 20th century, Eskimos in Alaska and has documented the fact that their diet consisted of 90% of meat and fish. During his stay with the Eskimos, and I accepted their diet, and with its entire crew ate only meat and fish for a period of 6-9 months each year. This was pure "zero carb" ketogenic diet (with no carbs) and thus Stefansson fed all nine years while he lived with the Eskimos. When he returned to city life and his experience, the doctors were all astounded by the fact that his health was not at all disturbed.

Highly inefficient. And you - or some other retard - were claiming that you don't need glucose to survive.

The strongest argument to be made for keto is basically "you won't immediately become malnourished."

>The diet of the Inuit is perhaps oversimplified in order to simulate evidence supporting the viability of long term carbohydrate deprivation. In addition to the seaweed and glycogen carbohydrates mentioned above, the Inuit are able to access many plant sources as well. The stomach contents of caribou contain a large quantity of partially digested lichens and plants which were considered a delicacy. Reindeer moss and other lichens were also harvested directly. The extended daylight of the arctic summer led to a profusion of plant life, and plant parts including berries, roots and stems, as well as mushrooms were harvested. These could be preserved for use in winter, often by dipping in seal fat.

>Carbs are far unhealthier than any other food source.
Strength training burns primarily carbohydrate as a fuel source. Having an adequate carbohydrate intake ensures that your muscles are capable of maximum power production and sustaining that production through the entirety of your workout. Fatigue due to lack of fuel (hitting the wall so to speak) is not positive fatigue for muscle gain.

>Six adolescents, aged 12 to 15 years, weighing an average of 147.8 kg (range, 120.6-198.6 kg) and having an average body mass index of 50.9 kg/m (39.8-63.0 kg/m), consumed the K diet for 8 weeks. Daily intake consisted of 650 to 725 calories, which was substantively in the form of protein (80-100 g). The diet was very low in carbohydrates (25 g) and fat (25 g). This was followed by 12 weeks of the K diet plus two carbohydrates (30 g) per meal (K+2 diet).

Well fuck, with a BMI of 51, I'd be amazed if restricting the calories of those 6 morbidly obese kids to 650-725 calories a day wouldn't cause weight loss. It's also weird to see the phrase "low-fat ketogenic diet." 25g of fat a day doesn't sound very ketogenic.

Ketosis could be described as carb deficiency, since lack of carbs causes the inefficient fat breakdown that leads to your body being overwhelmed by ketone bodies

http://books.google.com/books?id=hrdRROeCI9IC&pg=PA264

>Dietary carbs make you fat and sick.

Like I said earlier, that's broad as all fuck. Some are bad for you, many are good for you. You'd have to know nothing about food or health to think every carbohydrate containing food as a group is unhealthy.

>>35144100

The reliance on anecdotes and obvious marketing ploys doesn't make a good argument for your diet, my friend. You'll find similar anecdotes for every diet ever advertised. Fruitarians all say the same thing and they eat practically the opposite kind of diet.

>he once got his bloodwork tested, got excellent results, then never tested it again because he felt like he didn't have to.

This concerns me because what keto buddies have convinced themselves is "excellent bloodwork" is not necessarily what the rest of the world would consider excellent bloodwork, and getting a single blood test and trusting that everything will be fine in the future doesn't make sense considering that blood tests are mainly done to show you markers of health that you're meant to keep track of in order to judge your risk of developing health problems over time.

>Blood work is one of the things keto does best as shown by pretty much every clinical trial and there is plenty of anecdotal evidence if you are looking for it.

You may have been duped by a number of low carb weight loss trials, where low carb diets are shown to cause more weight loss than some other bad diet, and whichever diet shows more weight loss within the study period will generally show more improvement in bloodwork because of the weight loss. To be better than something worse does not make the diet good though. Here's a good video breaking down those studies

You know those guys you used to see on late night commercials in the 90s that sold "power crystals" over the phone that they claimed would make you stronger if you carry them around in your pocket? Gary Taubes is that guy, but with nutrition.

>Without exogenous carbs and alcohol your body gets to finally synthesize its preferred energy source from fats (ketones)

I'd have to wonder why this preferred fuel source gets cut off as soon as you eat a banana or an ear of corn. It's almost like your body prefers to utilize glucose for energy when it's available. Weird too that your body evolved its own storage system specifically for glucose. Exercise even allows your body to adapt to store more glycogen over time. Why's it trying so hard to store glucose if ketones are the preferred fuel? Stranger still, when you're in ketosis, your body is constantly trying to get rid of the ketones through your urine and even exhaling them out of your lungs. Why's it do that? It's like your brain's been enlightened by Gary Taubes but your body hasn't heard how it's really supposed to work yet

>I'd have to wonder why this preferred fuel source gets cut off as soon as you eat a banana or an ear of corn.
Alcohol is preferentially metabolized as well. Carbs and alcohol are toxic.

>Weird too that your body evolved its own storage system specifically for glucose. Exercise even allows your body to adapt to store more glycogen over time. Why's it trying so hard to store glucose if ketones are the preferred fuel?
Irrelevant. Those are vestigial biochemical pathways.

>your body is constantly trying to get rid of the ketones through your urine
It's not an active process. After keto-adaptation the body better uses ketones and wastes less in urine.

>even exhaling them out of your lungs.
Acetone is harmless byproduct, like CO2.

That's some nice Latin, but when we're talking about Gary Taubes, he has no real arguments in the first place. His whole schtick is that he lays out more theories than facts and hopes that his ideas just sound good enough to people to be accepted at face value. If you openly debate him about it, he can't get past his basic argument of "this is what I think, the actual science doesn't matter"

He lost a debate against Alan Aragon recently because he can't argue scientifically. Everything he says is a gimmick being sold through his diet books.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSEVkiTCCNw&feature=youtu.be

>It wasn't even an actual debate. It was Gary hypothesizing without supporting research, then me presenting a metric shit-ton of research supporting my position, followed by Gary flippantly dismissing and denying said shit-ton of research. Gary should have approached the debate very differently. The overwhelming consensus was that he got his ass handed to him. I personally was VERY disappointed in Gary's lack of decorum. He consistently ran way over his time slots, and interrupted me several times during my opening statement, which was very time-sensitive. It was very insulting to the audience, moderator, and of course me. To top things off, he admitted to me that even if NuSI research refuted his position, he likely wouldn't change his current opinions. So, in essence, he's not swayed by evidence. Bottom line is that he made a bad impression on everyone.

How do you know it developed FROM their traditional diet? Every source I've looked at says the exact cause is unknown. And let's say it did come from their diet. How would we corroborate this?

>>35148091

>How do you know it developed FROM their traditional diet?

Because atherosclerosis is a primarily diet-related disease, and evidence shows that saturated fats raise the amount of cholesterol in your blood, which can lead to atherosclerosis. Even if you want to deny that, it was claimed that they didn't suffer from diseases of affluence and that carbs in general are the cause of everything bad, so what caused the diseased arteries here?

>And let's say it did come from their diet. How would we corroborate this? Where are all of the 440 year old vegan mummies to compare it with? Why are there only two mummies to examine instead of like 100?

Nobody's talking about vegans here and I don't know where you'd find mummies of them. The reason there's not hundreds of these eskimo mummies to examine is that it was a chance finding. They weren't ritualistically mummified like in Egypt, they were preserved by a collapse of snow that killed them. While I would agree it alone isn't definitive proof that every Eskimo had heart disease or even that it was very common, it is proof that this disease did exist in the Eskimo population, and evidence that such a diet may not promote heart health.

>Total cholesterol and LDL are extremely poor indicators of risk vs Triglycerides and HDL

What made you think that cholesterol and even LDL are poor indicators of heart disease risk compared to trigs and HDL? It's a disease of cholesterol. That's cholesterol-rich plaque forming in your arteries.
>>
>>35148382
Different person but I remember reading that your ratio of LDL to HDL and your ratio of triglycerides to total cholesterol is more important than your LDL or cholesterol in isolation.

I also recall a study that suggested that high carb low fat diets are better for reducing cholesterol but low carb diets are better for reducing triglycerides.

I'll link to the sources if I can find them.
>>
>>35148467

Send 'em my way if you can track em down, since as I understand it now, LDL is considered the most important predictor, especially with research showing that HDL may not be as protective as we thought

http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletter_article/hdl-the-good-but-complex-cholesterol

>Cholesterol guidelines focus on lowering elevated LDL first. Raising HDL comes later. That means a high HDL doesn’t cancel out high LDL when it comes time to determine whether to start lifestyle or drug therapy. Instead, HDL takes a back seat to LDL.
>>
>>35148467
Found some articles. One is from Harvard and another is from a hippy site but cites numerous sources.

About LDL to HDL and triglycerides to HDL ratios:

http://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/making-sense-of-cholesterol-tests

http://www.naturalhealthadvisory.com/daily/cholesterol-control/cholesterol-ratio%E2%80%94more-important-than-total-cholesterol-or-ldl-cholesterol/

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2664115/
>>
>>35148544

>The LDL measurement is usually considered the most important for assessing risk and deciding on treatment. The definition of a healthy level keeps on getting lower. Current guidelines say an LDL of 100 is “optimal.” In a revision of the guidelines in early 2004, doctors were advised that an LDL of less than 70 should be a “therapeutic option” for very-high-risk patients. Some experts say that would be a healthy LDL goal for all of us.

Sounds like Harvard is agreeing that LDL is the most important
>>
>>35148557
But they also say
>Reports from the Framingham Heart Study suggest that for men, a total cholesterol-to-HDL ratio of 5 signifies average risk for heart disease; 3.4, about half the average risk; and 9.6, about double the average risk. Women tend to have higher HDL levels, so for them, a ratio of 4.4 signifies average risk; 3.3 is about half the average; and 7, about double. If you have a high level of total cholesterol, it may be less alarming if your total-to-HDL ratio is low.

It acknowledges that depending on the ratio high total cholesterol isn't always.

Of course, this is probably talking about a few points over, not someone with sky high total cholesterol and LDL.

>We studied a high-risk subset of patients, who showed a higher prevalence of coronary disease than the general population. We compared only lipid variables, and did not take into account the current use of medication or the inflammatory state of the patients. Since the commonly used statin and angiotensin enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers may alter the inflammatory state, they may weaken the relationship between total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol and the extent of coronary disease. This is because they act more on LDL-cholesterol and less on HDL-cholesterol and triglycerides.

That sounds like a pretty big oversight. They studied high-risk patients but didn't factor in any medication they may have been using, which could easily mess with their data.

>>35148630

The gist of both articles reads like high LDL is known to be bad, low HDL is known to be bad. To put it in ratio form, you'd expect to see the same thing. A high LDL to HDL ratio would mean LDL is high or HDL is low, both of which may be independently bad. Like they say, lowering LDL is the best option for prevention

Because a healthy diet doesn't center around meat, much less the extremely fatty meats advocated on keto. The World Health Organization says this as "a healthy diet is based mainly on foods of plant origin, rather than animal origin." Specifically, it's agreed upon that in addition to vegetetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes are the foundation of a healthy diet, with nuts mentioned as well

http://www.who.int/dietphysicalactivity/diet/en/

Of those 5 core healthy food groups, Keto allows 1 freely, allows limited amounts of another, and essentially bans the other 3, while filling in the calories with foods that people are advised to avoid or limit.

>Surely you can't be saying that gorging on breads and pasta with the nutritional value of fuck all is a better way to go.

Humans were never meant to eat grains. We've only been eating grains for maybe the past 10,000 years because some engineer or some fuck came up with some fucked up way to make some cheap quick calories to sell to poor starving roman plebs. We also don't have the ability to properly digest them, which is the reason foods high in carbohydrates cause a substantial amount of gas in humans (in contrast to fats and proteins). Humans were meant to eat lots of meats and veges.

This one is arguing against what you're saying. It's arguing for the consumption of a low-fat diet high in fiber, which can ferment into short-chain fatty acids (butyrate) that feed bacteria in your gut. It's not arguing that we should skip fiber and just eat lots of any random fats directly.

>Low fat diets, high in fiber, vegetable protein and plant sterols are all associated with reduced serum cholesterol levels in humans (Carroll 1983, Howard and Kritchevsky 1997, Jenkins et al. 1993, Kritchevsky 1979, Miettinen et al. 1995). Captive gorillas have high serum cholesterol levels, 281–311 mg/dL, (7.27–8.04 mmol/L) (McGuire et al. 1989) and suffer premature cardiovascular disease when they consume low fiber diets that often contain meat and eggs (Cousins 1979).

See the other link we're not gorillas


Gorillas, for example, obtain about 60% of their energy from fat [86] produced through the fermentation of plant fiber by bacteria found in their large intestine. It is estimated that each gram of fiber is processed by bacteria to yield 1.5 calories in the form of short-chain saturated fatty acids that are absorbed into the blood stream through the large intestinal wall. It is precisely the large intestine, the fat-producing apparatus in the great apes, which is diminished in humans to offset the increased brain volume, creating a shortage of fat in human diets. Replacement by exogenous fat consumption from animal sources would have been the least metabolically demanding alternative.
Low fat high fiber diets only appear helpful because they displace refined carbs and sugars. You DON'T need plant fiber on keto

There's the problem. Anyway, I don't even know where to start with this tangled argument. I need to figure out what you're actually arguing and why. So far we have

>Gorillas eat high fiber diets
>High fiber diets promote gut health by fermenting into short-chain fatty acids that feed colonic bacteria, while some is also absorbed into the bloodstream
>Therefore fiber doesn't matter, you should just eat fat, the type and amount of which doesn't matter apparently, nor do the other functions of fiber matter, like its role in carrying cholesterol out of the body

Is that basically what the argument is? It's such a roundabout way of arguing and makes so many assumptions with every step. I'm going to read through the first link a bit but I've never seen a good paper published in the journal PLOSone, and the title "Man the Fat Hunter," grammar errors and all, makes it even hard to take seriously

You're delusional, or uneducated.

The idea is that tumor patients exhibit an increased peripheral demand of fatty acids and protein. Contrarily, tumors utilize glucose as their main source of energy supply. Thus, a diet supplying the cancer patient with sufficient fat and protein for his demands while restricting the carbohydrates (CHO) tumors thrive on, could be a helpful strategy in improving the patients' situation.

But this hasn't been proven. The only things that show insulin and IGF-1, outside of normally functioning people with good insulin and IGF-1 health, as being risk factors for cancer are cell culture studies.

Carbs are not bad. They're bad if you have cancer, yes. But regardless, you still produce glucose in a ketogenic diet, you know? You still produce insulin, you still produce IGF-1.

You should eat saturated fat and restrict unsaturated fat. Too much unsaturated fat promotes aging and cancer. Saturated fats protect against both

Animal fiber is all you need. Plant fiber is just a vegan pseudoscience meme. It wastes cholesterol and as a result negatively impacts levels of hormones, vitamin D, and coenzyme Q10. It inhibits the absorption of nutrients and promotes constipation, kidney stone formation, bloating, and mucus production from irritating the intestines. Read the r/keto post

I'm still not getting how they reasoned their gorilla argument. How do you make the leap from "fiber is fermented in the colon into a specific fatty acid conducive to health, primarily at the site of the fermentation" to "instead of eating fiber, you can eat lots of any kind of fat for the same effect"? Where's all that middle research? The one reference it gave is arguing for a low fat diet, and says that switching fiber for fatty foods causes heart disease in captive gorillas

>We suggest that humans also evolved consuming similar high foliage, high fiber diets, which were low in fat and dietary cholesterol. The macronutrient and fiber profile of the gorilla diet is one in which the colon is likely to play a major role in overall nutrition. Both the nutrient and fiber components of such a diet and the functional capacity of the hominoid colon may have important dietary implications for contemporary human health.

A low carb diet book author with no expertise in what she's writing about isn't who I would turn to, but let's see what her points are. According to the response section, people called for the paper to be retracted, so it must be pretty crazy stuff.

It looks like she's just complaining that people have moved on from the saturated fat issue, and she cites a meta-analysis from 2010 that was funded by the National Dairy Council as a reason why the government should divert more time and resources to studying saturated fats. This paper isn't well respected in the medical community and is filled with errors and misinterpretations of the studies the authors selected, mostly pointed out in this response letter

http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/91/3/497.full

She brings up a lot of poor quality studies, mostt of which have already been reviewed and rejected as compelling evidence, including this paper that people like her constantly cite, even though the authors of it don't agree with the conclusion that saturated fat isn't an issue

>NO, fiber feeds colonic bacteria, colonic bacteria produce fats which then feeds the gorilla

They ferment fiber and produce butyrate, which feeds the colon cells, promoting gut health. Producing the butyrate in the colon is important.

>NO, fiber does matter
>animal fiber is all you need

The fuck is animal fiber?

>they just don't need as much. They DO need more exogenous fat for calories

Where did you come up with that? Even your Man the Fat Hunter article says that the most recent human adaptation is to a high-starch diet. And high fiber diets are still, today, associated with good health. It improves gut health, decreases colon cancer risk and cardiovascular disease, lowers blood pressure, protects against hernia and hemorrhoids, and more.

>You should eat saturated fat and restrict unsaturated fat.

Because the C4:0 fat butyrate is saturated? That's a huge stretch to say that any type of saturated fat would function the same.

>Plant fiber is just a vegan pseudoscience meme. It wastes cholesterol and as a result negatively impacts levels of hormones, vitamin D, and coenzyme Q10.

You didn't understand what I posted. The "5 year old study" wasn't a study, it's a response to the first piece of evidence Nina Teicholz cites in the article you posted to say that evidence for saturated fat has been unfairly neglected. The letter, written by one of the most famous cardiologists in the world, points out the many flaws of the study and its interpretations. In other words, she cited a bogus study.

The 2014 article is about another bogus study she references, again to say that questions about saturated fat are still active and worth considering. That paper, as the article points out, was filled with errors that needed to be corrected after publication, and had many people asking for it to be retracted (just like Nina's article), while even the authors of the paper agree that it was badly done and misleading, and wouldn't support Nina's use of their paper as a citation in that article.

>i posted a couple review articles containing follow up questions by bloggers to a couple of studies of the many cited in the bmj article which find no significant relation between saturated fat consumption and heart disease all by a new york journalist which I personally deem unworthy in contrast to these well respected bloggers (which in no way makes me a hypocrite btw)

>They ferment fiber and produce butyrate, which feeds the colon cells, promoting gut health. Producing the butyrate in the colon is important.
They produce all kinds of short chain saturated fatty acids. Without them gorillas would never get enough calories from their shitty indigestible anti-nutrient dense plant diet
>The fuck is animal fiber?

>Where did you come up with that? Even your Man the Fat Hunter article says that the most recent human adaptation is to a high-starch diet.
High fat keto diets are the best diets for human health. Humans are still too poorly adapted to function best on a high starch diet. Carbohydrate restriction is beneficial for neuroprotection, cognition, aging, obesity, type 2 diabetes, diabetic nephropathy, fatty liver, PCOS, autoimmune diseases, certain types of cancer, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, acne, and others.

>And high fiber diets are still, today, associated with good health. It improves gut health, decreases colon cancer risk and cardiovascular disease, lowers blood pressure, protects against hernia and hemorrhoids
Nope. I see you still haven't read https://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/1lolqu/end_the_fiber_fantasy_everything_you_dont_want_to/
High fiber is just a stupid meme and leads to improvements only if you were on a diet rich in carbs and cheap oils. There are even better ways to improve gut health, like with probiotics, digestive enzymes, and animal fiber

All saturated fats are beneficial. Human breast milk has specially evolved to enhance the intestinal uptake and tissue availability of saturated fats
>Yeah, we wouldn't want our arteries to go unclogged. What a waste that would be.
Cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease in a natural ketogenic metabolic state. Wasting cholesterol puts unnecessary metabolic stress on your liver. Fuck off with your vegan pseudoscience

Anyway, if you don't understand the response letter but you're curious why the studies she cites aren't very good, here's a brief, easy to understand walkthrough of the first one

And as for deeming her unworthy, that she's a journalist writing about diet and nutrition is bad enough, that she cites these same heavily flawed papers that ever other saturated fat denier cites is worse, and that she profits by doing so just brings it full circle

>Keto/paleo is natural

>Even the Inuit who are paraded around as an example aren't in ketosis
Ketosis is literally your body's Plan B. It's meant as a back up to keep your brain alive during a famine or intense exercise. To think that you should live your life on it, or build a sucessfu; civilization on it, is batshit insane.

>They produce all kinds of short chain saturated fatty acids. Without them gorillas would never get enough calories from their shitty indigestible anti-nutrient dense plant diet

That's true, gorillas rely on the short chain fatty acids produced from all the fiber they eat in order to extract more calories from the dense, fiberous vegetation they eat. With that said, you can't conclude from this that they can skip the middle-man and just eat overt fat, not even the same kind the bacteria synthesize, and be just as fine, and that this would also apply to humans. The reference given says replacing fiber with meat and eggs in gorilla diets leads to high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.

Honestly, I think you'd know more if you stopped browsing reddit subforums for all your info.

>All saturated fats are beneficial.

All saturated fats are beneficial and all carbohydrates are bad. I get it, you're totally keto. Cite something atleast.

>Cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease in a natural ketogenic metabolic state

What a qualifier you tacked on there. Why is keto so special that the normal rules of biology don't apply to it?
>>
>>35152300

This is incorrect.

Agriculture enables a group of people to lessen their reliance on hunting, and settle down in an area. Once they have a surplus of food, they begin to develop social hierarchies, and shit.

This is why humanity originated in Africa, and then the first civilization was in the Middle East. Africa has virtually no useful crops to domesticate, and the ones you can domesticate have low protein content. The part of the Middle East where Mesopotamia was had like 7 different species of animal to domesticate, and multiple plants worth farming.

tl;dr No civilization has followed keto because keto isn't compatible for the development of a civilization. Not because keto isn't useful at all.

To be fair, it's not an article by McDougall, it's just posted on the website. I guess you can agree with me then that the article you posted doesn't support your beliefs very well

Having now seen that the foundation of the argument in the paper being cited is low-quality, why would you still defend it?

>McDougall

It's not written by John McDougall, it's written by Fred Pollack. Do you disagree with Fred in his evaluation?
