Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer-
Ketosis to Help Your Business? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com/life-fitness-coaching
-Ketosis is when your body turns to fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Ketosis can occur during fasting, when you reduce the amount of carbs or calories in your diet, during pregnancy or after exercising for a long period of time. Many diets use ketosis as the means of burning fat while maintaining muscle – examples include the Atkins diet and other low-carb diets. This strategy can also lead to decreased hunger. How long does it take to kick your body into fat burning, ketosis mode? Roughly 3-4 days of consuming less than 50 carbs per day, the equivalent of 2 bananas. Benefits include weight loss, seizure prevention, cardiovascular health and type-2 diabetes help, to name a few.
How does it Work? When glucose is in short supply, your liver will break down fats into ketones, which are then used throughout your body for energy. Muscles and other tissues in your body use ketones rather than glucose for energy metabolism. In a healthy person, the production of ketones for energy is the body’s natural response to starvation, so this happens when dieting, overnight and during fasting.
Glucose or Ketones: Which is More Effective? Many brain diseases, such as epilepsy, are already being treated by the ketogenic diet. The mechanisms to why it helps the brain are still being studied, but there are some possible reasons that ketones seem to be a good energy source for the brain. One major Ketone, beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB, provides more energy per unit of oxygen than glucose, and thus may be even more efficient than glucose at providing energy to the brain. (3)
-The ketogenic diet has also been found to increase the number of mitochondria in brain cells. In a 2004 study on rats, one group was fed a ketogenic diet while the other was fed a normal diet. A positive impact was found on the gene expression for mitochondrial enzymes in the hippocampus, the memory and learning center of the brain. (4)
Ketosis and Body Water Composition: High fat and low carb diets are known to lead to fast weight loss. The fast weight loss is due to water weight being shed (5)
-When you decrease carbs, you decrease water storage in the body.
Who Can Benefit From Ketosis? If you are looking to shed some body fat, ketosis may be a good tool. This can go along with an exercise regimen as you maintain muscle while losing fat. Ketosis can also benefit those who need to boost brain power as energy may be utilized more effectively in the brain.
*Be careful because those with diabetes can get too high of a level of ketones in their blood, which is very dangerous. This occurs due to the low levels of insulin in the blood, which will signal the body to produce excess ketones that will build up in the blood, making the blood pH too low.

The ketogenic diet is a type of low carb diet that allows you to turn your body into a fat burning machine. This diet has done wonders for people that suffer from health issues like Obesity and Diabetes. It also is a great way to train your body to be prepared for survival situations where food might be scarce or a scenario where you are lost in the woods away from a food source. It just simply promotes a better quality of life while maintaining energy throughout the day.

This video is about a question that I often get: What should you take/drink/eat before and after working out? My mindset about this has changed a lot over the past few years, so I wanted to share my experience. Full description below! ► Best MCT oil: http://amzn.to/2jiAXeb
Before starting Keto 1,5 years ago, I used to be obsessed with timing my carbs and protein perfectly pre- and post workout. If I didn’t have a big portion of rice or pasta approximately 2 hours before working out, I felt less energy and my performance would suffer as a result. Then, after working out I had to have my double Protein shake mixed with cheap carbohydrates in the form of maltodextrin. As soon as I got home, I would force myself to eat as big of a meal as possible, consisting of carbohydrates and protein, as I thought all of this was essential to build muscle and to maximize protein synthesis. I was always really tired and crashing after working out, so my day was pretty much done after that. Doesn’t sound like too much fun, right?
Now, lets fast forward one and a half years later. Thanks to the Ketogenic Diet, I’m able to only work out once/week in the gym since August 2015 while maintaining the physique I want. As an example, here is what my weekly workout day looked like last saturday:
– 7 AM: Cup of coffee with coconut oil after getting up
– 12 PM: Lunch: Cabbage with butter and some Mackerel
– 6 PM: Full body gym workout with my girlfriend Zsofi. We both felt tons of energy, she managed to beat her own bench press record. We finished after 45 minutes, without the slightest energy crash and still being able to make the best out of the rest of our evening.
– 8 PM: Dinner: Buttered Cauliflower-mash with ground beef
That’s it. No supplements/boosters/aminoacids/carbs or other powders before, during or after working out. Just water and some tea in the 6 hours between lunch and our workout. And then after getting home, we relaxed and hat a nice, low-carb, high fat dinner. Btw, on days where you are working out, you can add a little more protein to your meals, it will not kick you out of Ketosis.
Now here is what I do if I’m going to work out early in the morning and I’m still fasting, so if I didn’t have any food for the last 14 hours or so:
Half to one hour before working out, I make a coffee or tea and mix that with 10-15ml of MCT oil or a tablespoon of coconut oil, which is slightly less powerful.
If you feel a little sluggish or tired before working out and you can feel that you’re not in Ketosis because your energy levels are off, (maybe you ate some carbs or your body is still adapting to a Ketogenic Diet) I would do the same as above. This is especially helpful when you’re just starting out and you notice that your workout performance is not yet where it used to be before Keto. Don’t worry, after a couple of weeks your workouts will be even better than before. The part that I personally enjoy the most is not crashing afterwards.
Ketones protect your muscle mass and make the amino acid leucine more readily available. Leucine is especially important for the maintenance and for building muscle. This is why some people are able to fast up to 72 hours without loosing muscle mass, thanks to the presence of ketones in their blood. There is no need to constantly be eating or to spend a ton of money on supplements like creatine, protein powders and workout boosters etc. which are mostly filled with chemicals anyway. Believe me, I’ve personally wasted way too much money on those and threw away many of them over the last couple of years.
Here is the deal: Until the beginning of October I always had a stevia-sweetened Whey protein shake after my workouts. It was more of a habit, because I’ve been doing so for a long time. It wasn’t until I stopped that I realised how much better it is to simply wait and have a real meal at home as well as not needing to prepare this little extra when going to the gym. Quite often we think we need something or do something out of habit or because we were influenced by great marketing, even though it might not add any real benefit.
Keep it simple and get rid of all the garbage you don’t need. Stick to real, whole food, follow the Ketogenic Diet and after a while you’ll be as amazed as we always are when we’re in the gym and feel full of energy without having eaten anything for a long time. Sometimes it’s so unbelievable that feel like you want to tell people when you’re there – ‘guys, there is a better way! You can stop stuffing yourself with oats, rice and pasta before working out. And no you don’t need carb-ups afterwards either!’
Is there anything specific that you do/drink/eat before or after working out?
