Dietitian: “My diet is 82% fat and I’ve never been healthier”

    I also posted this with the original story:

    And also with me. This morning I was thinking back to my audition experience last night (a children's theatre production of "Charlotte's Web") where we were doing acting "exercises" requiring us to imitate other auditionees imitating animals. It involved a lot of squatting and getting up and down from the floor. I didn't even think about the fact that at age 62 I was most likely the oldest person there and had no difficulty doing everything the others did, including kids from 8 to 16. It is such a blessing to be so "fit" and limber at my age and to have no restrictions on what I can do physically. I credit it all to following a ketogenic diet (which also allows me to be so active and to have biked nearly 5000 miles last year).

    Glad to see there are more and more articles
    in mainstream media that are telling the truth.

    Today is Saturday and we're streaming on
    the internet at
    at 3:30 PM California time. Low Carb, High Fat
    on the Air.

    Today's topic will be the ways we've been
    mislead about nutrition.

    Would that percent still work though if you have a lot if weight to lose ?

    I'm reading thst its best to keep your fat lower when on keto so the body burns through your stored fat quicker rather than having to go through your dietary fat first

    The fat percentage is percentage of your energy demand.

    And the thing is that the purpose is to make your body a fat burning machine.. and to restore a normal apetite.

    Starving is ofcourse a faster way, but its seldome sustaineble and often not that healty in the long run.

    But I think you are thinking about calories?

    Ofcourse its about calories in the end, but if one radicaly cut out a lot of carbs, one need any other fuel, becuse protein is mostly a building stone.

    Its about that not cutting to many corners.. get converted, eat till satisfaction at first, transit to a fat burning machine.. then your apetite get lower.. if it have a lot of fat stored.

    Asked this of the diet doctor, got no reply. Will this work for me when I don't have a gall bladder, and if not, what is my alternative?

    My gallbladder is removed. I am eating a LCHF, and it required some adaptation. Human body is adaptable.

    Hey Galina,
    When I had my gallbladder removed, I was told that I had to go on a low fat diet. I had already been on years of restricted low fat, so I went even lower. As close to none as possible. I was hungry all the time, so I tried high fiber, to try to fill up. It was a disaster. There is more to the story, but the long and the short is that I am on the LCHF diet, and I HAVE NO PROBLEMS! The recommendations were so far from the truth. I had a constant sore belly, bloat, hunger, sleeplessness, cravings for salt, constipation and diarrhea at times. I was so sluggish all the time, and had night-time stinking thinking. So you are not alone. The recommendations from the medical system seem to be purely based on speculation that without a gallbladder, one may not be able to digest food properly. The result of the rediculous recommendation was gaining weight. Of course, I had gained weight on the low fat diet already, so it I went from bad to terrible. Finally, I am losing.
