Trudi Deakin on Ketovangelist:
This podcast episode is fantastic, even for non-keto people.
She talked about the whole “energy balance” thing. This is often times known as Calories in/Calories out. She shares from a scientific perspective how it isn’t all about the balance when it comes to achieving optimal health. Listen up an take notes. You’ll probably need them the next time you get someone trying to convince you that calories in/calories out is the only way to go!
Trudi sites study after study including the biggest loser.
She backs up what we know.
Diabetes is an insulin problem, not a calories in calories out problem
Trudi talks about plateaus
its really hard to measure basal metabolic rate. you have to put them into a metabolic chamber that measures heat expenditure
the length of the overnight fast is helpful.
individuals who fasted for 12 or more lost more fat
continuous energy restriction is not as good as intermittent energy restriction
at 6 months, was 9 kilos vs 14 kilos for those who did intermittent energy restriction
and damage to metabolic rate was much less for the intermitted fasters
eat less and move more people end up eating little and often
trudi sites many studies including 2 meals vs 6 meals
the meals did so much better for weight control and blood glucose control
in the book diabetes unpacked says if you’re eating more than 2x a day, you’re feeding your reward center in your brain not
breakfast is NOT the most important of the day
meditation may help
obesity really is a hormonal condition
our brain can do 80% of its function on ketones, which is a cleaner energy
not all calories are equal
a low fat diet has not been shown to be effective
physical activity drives appetite
plateau is mainly due to a reduction in basal metabolic rate
which can cause a metabolic adaptation that can cause long term reduction
we need to drive down insulin levels
