Bp Vs. Phd Keto
After experimenting with different diets over the years, I can't deny the powerful mental effects of having ketones fuel the brain. What I'm trying to determine is whether BP is optimal to Paul Jaminet's ketogenic diet recommendation in the Perfect Health Diet book. Essentially, as opposed to BP, you would eat the following on a daily basis: ~50g carbs from safe starches (more on exercise days), ~100g protein including 5g BCAA, unlimited veggies, and a minimum of 4 TBSP of MCT oil, all along with a 16 hour fasting window. So compared to BP, the average day is higher in carbs, same or slightly higher in protein, and lower in fat.
The other key differences between this and BP would be no refeeds, no loss of muscle glycogen, no keto breath, no copious amounts of sea salt. It's a low carb diet with the presence of ketones without the cyclical nature of BP. So if you wanted to lose weight, you'd eat those minimum macros, and then keep additional calories to a minimum so your body is forced to obtain its fat needs from stores in the body. Instead of fatty cuts of meat, you'd eat lean protein and seafood.
You could even implement the PHD keto diet within the context of BP (still having BP coffee, eating carbs only with your last meal, and obviously still eating the most BP types of food, etc).
I'm looking for reasons to choose one over the other. Any further thoughts on why one might be best? Has anyone experimented with both?
