why do so many people assume they are in ketosis because they are LC/VLC?
in my experience it is not easy to remain in ketosis and takes a lot of measuring and fat-eating. eating 10g too many carbs or protein kicks me back into sugar burning.
I challenge the premise of the question. More than one person asking about/discussing the topic in no way resembles or suggests "obsession." And PH does not represent a monolithic community, but a loose collection of individuals, each with their own interests and points of view.
Because I'm a T2 diabetic, and it's a much better alternative than getting my toes cut off and having my eyeballs start bleeding.
Got a better solution? Thought not...
Ketosis helps clean out the body of dead and mutated cells. It lowers your chance of getting cancer and also makes it easy to lose weight and stay lean.
I recently asked if my brain can use ketones from coconut oil's MCT while pushing glucose to muscles and other glucose-dependent organs. They answered, yes (about the brain), but were silent about the rest :)
The real question for me is why are so many people obsessed with what other people think and do.
I am always curious about what other people have done, but nothing will ever beat N=1 no matter how obsessed everyone else may seem.
