Hey, I’m Sama, a natural bodybuilder who’s bought into the perks of keto and intermittent fasting. Why? When combined, the boosting effect on mental energy is unrivalled on any other diet. And the fat loss isn’t bad either.
Both diets have been used since practically the dawn of time, but they’re still in their infancy in scientific research. So I’m constantly picking up new things each week. From now, I’ll be writing down the pick of the bunch. And while they won’t all strike a chord with you, I hope they will at least nudge some curiosity.
There’s a gut-to-brain pathway that drives sugar preference over artificial sweeteners, even when calories are equal. A study done with rats, but some research is better than none.
While leptin does naturally fall with carbohydrate restriction, keto can increase leptin sensitivity in the brain. Since a drop in leptin levels can prompt the body to fight against weight loss, a stronger response to the hormone goes a long way towards balancing things out.
C8 is the best form of MCT Oil for promoting ketone bodies.
Since beta hydroxybutyrate, the ketone fuel, supplies the gut cells with energy, you should be able to get by on a keto diet without needing a ton of vegetables to help keep your poop game going.
