6 Nutrition Myths That Are Wrong And You Need To Stop

I hear a lot of stupid nutrition myths that are wrong. Everyone you run into is a nutritionist these days. It doesn’t matter that they are 300+ pounds and have diabetes. One of the rules I live by is to never take advice from those less successful than you. If Rich Froning wants to tell me about nutrition I’m getting out my notebook. If, however, an obese guy is trying to tell me that bacon is bad for you, he can get lost. 

For the most part, science is getting better at nutritional studies. In the past and probably still to this day numbers are fudged to suit agendas.  The often quoted China Study is a prime example of these. Where the scientist just tossed out all the numbers that didn’t fit his model.

What Is Ketosis? How To Follow A ketogenic Diet Plan

    I get asked what is ketosis pretty often. My girlfriend  asked me recently about it. I was on my way and out the door and knew I couldn’t answer it properly. What is keto and what is a ketogenic diet plan is both a simple and very complicated question. For such a fundamental part of the human physiology to still have so little known is mind blowing.  

The ketosis definition from Wikipedia is 

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.

Being in ketosis means that your body has switched from a glucose burning system to a fat burning one. 

How To Get Into Ketosis

    The super easy answer for you nonreading mongoloids is this Eat under 20 grams of carbs, Eat between .6 and 1 gram of Protein per Pound Of Bodyweight and Have the rest of your calories come from healthy Fats. 

That is a very simplified version of What is ketosis. To be more specific you will need to use a macro calculator to determine your actual macros to aim for. Also, you will need to track the food you eat on a ketogenic diet plan.

3 Day Fast Tips And Tricks You Can Use To Survive

How long have you been without food? In your whole life? For many this is only a few hours. The idea of going without food terrifies people. I’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a 3 day fast for years now. The timing never seemed to fit though. I couldn’t face deliberately not going without food. I had leftover fears from my time being homeless. Not knowing when your next meal will come will ┬árattle you.

While listening to an episode of the Tim Ferriss Show he said that he does a 3 day fast once a month. It was the reason for the fast that pushed me to try it. It is not for the many health benefits but for  reasons picked up from Stoic philosophy. He has a podcast about it called How to practice poverty and reduce fear. It was the fear reduction I was most interesting.

I will talk about the health benefits in this article. There are many. It is not, however, our main concern. We will be focusing on overcoming the fear of hunger and gaining the knowledge that you can do a 3 day fast. 3 days, 72 is the time frame we focus on most in prepping. The first 72 hours are the most critical in a disaster. You need to be thinking clearly to increase your survivability. Dealing with a disaster while being hangry would suck.
