    Keto Lean It is a well-known fact that losing weight is a long and difficult process. But with the innovations provided by modern science, it isn't nearly so bad; nowadays, you can find supplements for every need, providing a wide range of effects and with a huge variety of active ingredients. But with so much variety, how do you choose the best weight loss pills? The answer is simpler than you might think.

    I have done keto twice. It really works on many aspects. I do not think it is safe for everyone though. In my case I had a few mild strokes while on keto. I do not think it is natural to undergo keto continuously simply because we did not evolve this way. High fat diets can be dangerous. A much safer option for me is intermittent fasting.

      Here is a very recent study on time restricted eating:

        And here is a well balanced approach to the low carb alternative by a low carb evangelist:
        Is a Low-Carb Diet Ruining Your Health?

        We are all different - there is no solution fits all.

          I have just found this study that correlates high fat diets with blindness in women. It was a big surprise.

          I am not trying to scare anyone. I am trying to get some truth in a sea of contradictory information. How can you be so sure keto is the answer? Just because it has been working for you? What about the long term effects? Have you heard of any long living population doing keto continuously? Let's not be afraid of facing the facts. Everyone is afraid for his own health and I believe caution should be the best approach. Embracing keto does not sound cautious without long term studies. Have you seen it done on any modern populations? I have seen a few done by the canadians on the innuit and the results are not very encouraging. I wonder what Dr. Brewer would have to say about keto.

            I forgot to thank you for the links. I really appreciate the discussion!

              Show the archeological evidence, please. We evolved from apes and afaik apes did not live on keto.
              Before agriculture, primitive humans were hunter gatherers. They would eat virtually anything. There would be times of plenty and times of little food, hence our adaption to fasting and occasional ketosis - because of forced fasting. I cannot figure them sustaining an 80% fat rich diet on a daily basis? They wouldn't throw away the little protein they got from their scarce prey just to maintain a ketogenic state.

                I think you and I are of one mind. The 'Blue Zone' data shows no large population living long with no major diseases living primarily on meat. Neither are they vegan. They are 10-15% meat, mostly starch like rice, corn, sweet potatoes or taro plus vegetables. Fruits are a rare treat.

                I also agree with you about some form of fasting whether daily, like OMAD or 16/8, or periodic like 5/2.

                Would look forward to how things are working for you.

                  Also, I assume many of us are here as fans of Dr. Brewer's videos. He is big on tests and so am I. It is like showing our balance sheet. I haven't done any tests and hope to have some of them done in the next month.

                  How about you? What tests? CIMT? OGTT? Coronary Calcium? We can compare scores and better understand who are the people we will listen to.
