There's a big difference in ketosis and ketoacidosis, not just in the quantity of ketone bodies, but the context. For diabetics, the presence of large amount of ketones (ketoacidosis) indicates that the body cannot use glucose as a fuel source,... (more)

Been on Paleo for about two months and it has been an absolute success for me. Lost 22 lbs, improved my cholesterol levels and I feel better. It's also cured my dandruff and my restless leg syndrome. Anyone else experience this?

Do you eat your carbs with protein and fat in a mixed meal or by themselves? I suggest you add carbs in small amounts and always in a meal with protein and fat to slow down the digestion and absorption of the starches. I have to do this as I am... (more)

In addition to what Drs Kruse and Jaminet said, I think an important distinction is that gluconeogenesis is regulated by internal feedback mechanisms. Safe starches are regulated by who puts the food on our plate and how big of a portion it is. (more)

Is Dr. Friedman related to Rory Friedman - the author of Skinny Bitch, a pro-vegan agenda book disguised as a diet book? If so, the same silly genes run through both of them and neither can be taken seriously.

If I say you're eating too much you'll eat less [protein] and feel better or worse. If worse you'll go back to what you were doing to feel good, and if better then you stay better. Reverse is true for if I say you're eating too little. Hope you... (more)
