  • From Dr. Christian: Exploring Low Carbohydrate Eating and Nutritional Ketosis!

    165lbs of Rompin, Stompin, Airborne Romance in Jump Boots!     A Great Infographic!  This is what we teach!

    All of our clients know we have always advocated a modified Zone/Paleo approach to nutrition during the reduced calorie portion of the program when clients are still trying to lose fat. This turns out to be about 85 to 100 grams of carbohydrate per day mainly from fiber rich vegetables and a little fruit.  During a non-weight loss program you will have to add back more quality carbohydrate and fat and the diet will be more classic Zone. Over the years, I have read about low carbohydrate and nutritional ketosis eating but felt it was a little too radical, but several Doctors I respect have written favorably about it and I decided to give it a try. For the past 6 months I have limited carbohydrates to 25 to at most 50gms a day. These carbohydrates came from the added sugar in 2 glasses of red wine wine and 2 teaspoons of honey at night. 25gms of carbohydrates is only 100cal.  I also ate 150gm Protein which is 600cal.  So between carbs and protein I was eating only 700cal. My Total Daily Energy requirement is about 2000cal, so I had Moderate Ketosis, 24hrs a day by KetoStix!to get 1300cal from Fat and Alcohol. My 2 glasses of red wine accounted for 300cal, so 1000cal a day or 50% of my calories are from fat.  My fat sources are 500cal from 4 tablespoons of medium chain triglycerides (converted to ketones in liver) and 500cal of long chain fatty acids from butter, eggs, meat and olives.  This keeps me in moderate ketosis by urine dipstick almost 24hrs a day.  I make sure I get my Vitamins and Fiber. Results: No Carbohydrate Craving, No lack of Energy, No Hypoglycemic feelings, No decrement in workout intensity and much better mental clarity and focus. 

    So, you are asking, isn't fat bad for you??  Check out the next article in this newsletter!!

    At Inside Outside whether it's Zone/Paleo/Low Carb/Ketosis we understand it.

    Have You heard?  Fat is BACK IN and Sugar is OUT!

    Fat is Good!!

    Sugar is bad!!


    "The Fat of the Land" by Arctic Explorer V. Stefansson and the Video "SugarHolics" by Jack LaLanne were produced in 1956 and 1960.  Stefansson had noted on his Arctic Expeditions that the natives live almost entirely on Fat and Protein and were in great health with no dental decay.  He wrote this book extolling the virtues of a high fat diet at a time when, because of President Eisenhower's heart attack, fat was being attacked as the main cause of heart disease.  Around the same time, Jack LaLanne was convinced that the real enemy was added sugar and coined the term "SugarHolics". Turns out these pioneers were basically ignored for over 50 years due to our governments health policy to promote a low fat and high carbohydrate diet!!  In the 1990's Dr. Sear's with "The Zone" and Dr. Atkins with "The Atkins Diet" revived the principles of Stefansson and LaLanne and that was the start of the great reversal of the policies that have been in my opinion responsible for our obesity and Type II Diabetes epidemics!!  The change was strengthened by Dr. Eades of "Protein Power' and Dr. Cordain of "The Paleo Diet" and many others are now promoting the principles of the dietary program we are sharing with our clients. Take a few minutes to review some of these links and you will appreciate that the tide indeed is turning, at least for those who have access to high quality protein, fat and carbohydrate.  Unfortunately, a large portion of the world's population are totally dependent on three monocrops, wheat, corn and rice which are dependent on 3 non-sustainable resources, topsoil, oil (for production of artificial fertilizer) and water. 

    When I went to my first Zone workshop in the Mid 90's, Dr. Sears said "I want to save the species".

    That is what our goal is, to save those who want to be saved and can be saved!
