Intermittent fasting

Metabolic switching and different forms of fasting.

Can you maintain muscle during fasting?

But in the short-term (at least up to a week for most people), I believe you can maintain muscle mass while fasting, particularly if you’re resistance training.

Ketones, fasting, and muscle loss

I read an interesting article authored by my friend Dom D’Agostino and his colleagues on the anti-catabolic effects of ketone bodies in skeletal muscle.

Ketosis

My experience with exogenous ketones

Theory to anecdote: I decided to find out for myself if ketones could, indeed, offer up the same amount of usable energy with less oxygen consumption.

Ketones and Carbohydrates: Can they co-exist?

Can you “carb-load” and stay in ketosis?

Ketosis – advantaged or misunderstood state? (Part II)

When I wrote part I of this post, I naively assumed this would only be a two-part series. However, so many great questions and comments emerged from the discussion that I realize it’s worth spending much more time on this important and misunderstood topic. In terms of setting expectations, I suspect this series will require at least…

The interplay of exercise and ketosis – Part II

You’ll recall from last week’s post I did a self-experiment to see if I could learn something about the interplay of exercise and ketosis, at least in myself. To understand this discussion, you’ll want to have read Part I of this post. However, before getting to this, I want to digress and briefly address two…

Ketosis

The interplay of exercise and ketosis – Part I

I embarked on a self-experiment last weekend to see if I could better understand the interplay between the different types of exercise I do and ketone production (beta-hydroxybutyrate, or B-OHB, to be specific).  To be clear, nothing I do with a sample size of one “proves” anything, but sometimes self-experiments can help you formulate hypotheses…

Ketosis

Is ketosis dangerous?

You may have heard from your doctor that ketosis is a life-threatening condition. If so, your doctor is confusing diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) with nutritional ketosis, or keto-adaptation.
