Probably simply overreporting in an attempt to make the vegan religion seem more attractive. I will say, however, that overshooting calorically (with carbs) with very low fat intakes results in a miniscule amount of de novo lipogenesis, so each... (more)

I'm curious. ^^ Of course potatoes are nightshades, and do produce toxins. Normal potatoes will produce toxins when they go bad as well - solanine - which concentrates mostly at the skin level of the potato.

What happens when you become fat adapted and you happen to eat to many carbs one day and it knocks you out of ketosis but you still remain in a calorie deficit?

IF the goal is fat loss... meal timing is completely irrelevant and makes no difference between eating 1 meal a day or 10 meals a day or fasting 6 hours a day or fasting 20 hours a day... Makes NO difference in body composition.
