Dr. Deanna and I discuss the latest science and common misconceptions about eating low-carb: that dietary protein will convert to sugar and possibly make you fat and that you need to eat four to six meals per day.
Here’s a link to the show notes: http://highintensityhealth.com/154
Here are some more notes from today’s show—
Through a pathway known as gluconeogenesis, certain amino acids and fatty acids convert to sugar.
But this doesn’t necessary mean you’re no longer in ketosis.
Moreover, recent science has revealed that low-carb, high-protein diets create more healthy blood ketones than their protein versions.
The idea that it was healthy to eat four to six meals a day emerged before we fully understood circadian rhythms.
Your gut doesn’t operate in peak function around the clock like some may wrongfully have assumed.
Circadian rhythm research suggests that peak gut function occurs between 10 AM and 4 PM.
New research reveals that the gut actually stores the fat you eat for up to 18 hours.
