I never got the point of the whole "ketosis cheat day thing". Ketosis is a kind of "all or nothing" thing. If you test your blood ketones in the early stages of ketosis you can see them slowly building up from day to day. It takes 3-4 days to... (more)

I was watching YouTube and there's a Vegan guy who eats 4000+ calories per day. He logs what he eats into some website and he's getting about 1000g of carbs, 80g of protein and 15g of fat every day. He's slim too, no problem with body fat at... (more)

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?

First off, carbs are NOT what makes you gain muscle. When you eat a heavy carb meal, the glucose/glycogen has to be stored somewhere, so your muscles do take in as much as possible (along with about 3 grams of water for every gram of glycogen), ... (more)

This is fairly common with women that go too low on carbs. Try upping to 50-75 g a day via white rice. Split it up with each meal.

Eating strict paleo doesn't mean eating low carb. Get lots of tubers and starchy veggies and you can easily get your carbs up to a level you can deal with. 1 cup sweet potato = 40 grams, remember :)
