If your an administrator of information technology I recommend you go low carb. Don’t beat yourself up that you can’t find enough time to get up and move, exercise and its all your own fault. Learn to health hack by finding the evidence that leads to obesity and resolving it. Living a lifestyle of low carb then there is likely to be less down time due to illness. The ketogenic diet sustains better concentration and work outputs in my case. There is however a transition time of a week or more where you might experience a lot of body changes adapting.
During the change over time you have to stay hydrated, take supplements – particularly magnesium and relax. Then your body turns on the fat based metabolism – using it instead of trying to store it away. I’ll write more later on adapting to a ketogenic lifestyle which i think of as understanding meta-nutrition and applying it to your health.
Evidence Based understanding
This channel [no affiliation] is full of doctors and other professionals who research and follow evidence based medicine to help combat the dis-information about what foods are best for your health. Evidenced Based Keto: How to lose weight and reverse diabetes – by Dr Paul Mason.
Paul Mason is explaining, and he’s not the first that Obesity isn’t just because of exercise or lack of. That we are lazy or not following medical advice. He goes on to present evidence that insulin is really the proven culprit and we can “hack” our body by ceasing to eat that which stimulates insulin production to higher and higher levels.
Being in tune with today’s generation “the millennials”, many of whom are more into evidence based systems, people question old advice. Crypto (i really mean bitcoin here) vs Banking, Keto vs Industry influence dietary guidelines. Taking care of gut health vs taking various pharmaceuticals that destroy it. Using non-invasive medicines such as essential oils that are anti-cancer rather than foreign synthesized chemistry that is cancer inducing.
Where is the evidence though? Well its there where you don’t look, hiding in an ocean of falsified research. Many research journal editors in medicine speak to their complete loss of trust in the very articles they are publishing. They are kind of forced by industry money that buys influence in academia.
So anyway, today making Keto muffins because like many computer worker, i am addicted to sweet things. Baked goods and here is a recipe – there are tons of these out there but if you search you’ll end up on some super annoying website with endless scrolling before you reach the recipe. Links show examples of what kind of products you could order – just standard blogging now for me to link up products. You don’t need to buy, look at local supermarket but if you get desperate why not order online.
1 cup almond flour or almond meal
1 1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp Himalayan or other salt
1/3 cup Coconut oil – cooking or virgin (or melted butter)
1/3 cup Unsweetened almond milk or just cows milk
3 large Eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract or 2 tsp Imitation Vanilla
3/4 cup Blueberries or Mixed Berries or Raspberries or even chopped fine strawberries
1/2 cup of erythritol based natural sweetener (ie Natvia)
175 celsius for 25 minutes, cool for 10 minutes
I also found this while thinking about lowering the erythritol (sugar alcohol is a sugar alternative that doesn’t give you carbs so much) and replacing it with stevia. Mixing them together is typical in these types of recipes
