INTRO...

The ketogenic diet.....High in saturated fat and low in carbohydrates (YES A NUTRITIONIST'S NIGHTMARE). Keto is adopted by a growing population to promote weight loss, mental well-being and good natural all round health. Drinking coffee with butter, doesn't sound right, but inherits extraordinary benefits that one could never imagine Eating a block of cream cheese? Little to no fruit? Keto defies all common sense, inviting sceptics to wave it off as an unnatural “bacon-and-steak” fad diet.

Yet versions of the ketogenic diet have been used to successfully treat drug-resistant epilepsy in children since the 1920s – potentially even back in the biblical ages. Emerging evidence from animal models and clinical trials suggest keto may be therapeutically used in many other neurological disorders, including head ache, neurodegenerative diseases, sleep disorders, bipolar disorder, autism and brain cancer. With no apparent side effects.

Sound too good to be true?  Where are these neuroprotective effects coming from? What’s going on in the brain on a ketogenic diet?

WHAT...

Basically, a ketogenic diet mimics starvation, allowing the body to go into a metabolic state called ketosis. Normally, human bodies are sugar-driven machines (ingested carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which is mainly transported and used as energy or stored as glycogen in liver and muscle tissue). When deprived of dietary carbohydrates (usually below 35g/day), the liver becomes the sole provider of glucose to feed your hungry organs – especially the brain, a particularly greedy entity accounting for ~20% of total energy expenditure. The brain cannot DIRECTLY use fat for energy. Once liver glycogen is depleted, without a backup energy source, humanity probably would of disappeared!!

The backup is ketone bodies that the liver derives primarily from fatty acids in your diet or body fat. These ketones, (hydroxybutyrate) acetoacetate are released into the bloodstream, taken up by the brain and other organs, shuttled into the “energy factory” mitochondria and used up as fuel. Excess BHB and acetoacetate are excreted from urine, while acetone, due to its volatile nature, is breathed out (hence the characteristically sweet “keto breath”). Meanwhile, blood glucose remains physiologically normal due to glucose derived from certain amino acids and the breakdown of fatty acids therefore, low blood sugar avoided!

INTERESTING..

Sugar causes inflammation in the body, which is the root of many diseases, from neurological diseases to cancer.

Increased Energy

When your body is using ketones for fuel instead of glucose, you get more Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) with less oxidative stress. This means that you are more oxygen efficient which translates to improved physical athletic performance. This has proven to be especially effective for endurance athletes such as runners and cyclists.

Ketones are Muscle Sparing.

When running on glucose, your body converts muscle to glucose (gluconeogenesis). In ketosis, your body converts fat to ketones as fuel first, preserving your hard earned muscle.

Fight Cancer

Cancer cells are fuelled by glucose and there is a growing body of research demonstrating how the ketogenic diet can be used to prevent cancer (The Ketogenic Kitchen).

AND DID YOU KNOW...

‘Both the heart and the brain run more efficiently, by as much as 25%, on ketones than on blood sugar…healthy, normal brain cells thrive when fuelled by ketones.’ Brain Grain P. 25 David Perlmutter
