This video from Peter Attia really helped me get a better understanding of Ketosis.


I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did and I wish Dave could get Him on a podcast.

    That video is awesome, and Peter's work is really good. It's interesting that he's doing well while eating so much dairy. He'll go to Starbucks and order a latte made with heavy cream then have a plate of cheeses for lunch. 


     


    Also interesting that he's able to do fairly extreme endurance training in ketosis - and without ever seeming to refeed.

    Yeah, I had never even heard of Peter until I stumbled on this video. The amount of self testing He has done is amazing. 


     


    The Ketone vs Carb charts and talk in relation to aerobic vs anaerobic was awesome!

  • Consider visiting Dr. Attia's website. His writing on ketosis is really good and I'm even more impressed by his series on cholesterol. It took my model of cholesterol to a new level.

    Check out Peter's latest post to see what his current eating regime looks like. He's added more carbs as I would have expected.

    Check out his website. It seems like he modulates his carb intake based on his estimated daily needs rather than doing the cyclic refeed.

    Dr. Attia really feels the intake of too much protein will really hamper getting you in to ketosis. I enjoyed this whole vid but 7:00 in He talks about increasing salt and mineral intake and limiting protein.

    I feel like I've got salts and minerals down. The question is protein...


     


    Peter has said here that he eats 120-140g protein, and that 150 is where he starts to run into problems in terms of staying in ketosis. However, he's eating 4000-4500 calories a day and doing endurance workouts. 


     


    I probably average around 120g protein, maxing out out 135 on workout days, but I'm generally not eating more than 2100 calories/day. 


     


    So I wonder if there is a percentage component to the protein amount?

    I've wondered this too. Dr. Donald Layman says consuming at least 30g of protein at each meal for 3 meals is critical for protein synthesis. Dr. Ron Rosedale recommends that protein intake equal 1 g/kg of ideal body weight minus 10%. Lyle McDonald recommends protein intake of 150 grams per day  to minimize the loss of muscle mass to glucose production, but after a few weeks 50g is sufficient for muscle. Dr. Westman, Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek recommend a higher protein intake. At my height (6'1") I should be consuming 91-190g of protein.
