A year and a half ago, some time before this came to light, I personally switched to a (high-fat, medium-protein, very low-carb) ketogenic diet, a diet used clinically for almost a century. Breaking my fast every day with a "Bulletproof coffee" with two tablespoons of grass-fed butter and a tablespoon of MCT oil or coconut oil, I've been eating fat as my primary source of energy, including a lot of butter and saturated fat. Nuts are also a staple in my diet. According to our government's dietary guidelines I should be in the worst condition of my life, but the exact opposite has happened. I've never been leaner or more vital, and my blood is better than ever.The sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead, newly released historical documents show.
The internal sugar industry documents, recently discovered by a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, and published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that five decades of research into the role of nutrition and heart disease, including many of today’s dietary recommendations, may have been largely shaped by the sugar industry.
Studies and anecdotal evidence are certainly out there to back the ketogenic diet and foods such as grass-fed butter. I looked past the ordinary notion of healthy eating shaped in many ways by the likes of the sugar industry only to be completely disillusioned.
Anyone else around here with experience with ketogenic and high-fat diets?
