    LOL.

    Keto is one of those fad diets. It's not really sustainable in the long run- how are they going to bring lots of meat and fresh veggies into the battlefield?

    We used to have beer in the vending machines; I’m thinking that’s no more...

    Soldiering without beer is unmilitary!

    More military social engineering, while ships keep running into each other, and patrol craft navigators are so poorly trained that they don't know they are in Iranian waters.

    Must be all the pizzas they are eating?

Switched to Keto on 9/04/18, dropped over 50 lbs and can now train like I did in my 20s again, but with the smarts of a 50+ year old.

    The pitfall is that it can get BORING if you don't put your mind to it, and it's really important to fill up on the permissible vegetables so that one always feels full.

    Dropping all that weight makes it MUCH easier in the backcountry with a full pack. Last Summer I had iffy moment when I had to think about how I stepped because an ankle might go wrong, etc... No longer.

    That, and at my last required physical in Jan, my blood chemistry was perfect.

    Can't recommend it enough.

    Nah. That only happens when people go into ketoacidosis. Easily avoided by using urine strips.

    TBH, after a while I just kind of tuned the keto stuff out because the way Ben Greenfield (whose podcast I listened to) described his system, it's quite a bit of work, regular blood tests, long list of supplements, etc. I'm guessing you don't go through all that?

    I'm figuring the guy sells books and supplements, so makes it a bit harder than it would be for a non-elite athlete who isn't competing in iron man type events....
    It's really not even remotely that complicated. No regular blood tests, or any blood tests, for that matter. No extra supplements except, perhaps, for some apple cider vinegar and cream of tartar for minerals.

    I use urine strips and they tell me exactly where I am in about 10 seconds.

    Any schmuck can use it and use it successfully. Elite athelets need not apply.

I just have one/day, then if I drink more coffee it's black, or maybe with a little cream, but I know starting off with a shot of sugar and fat isn't the best thing...
    It's not the fat, it's just the sugar.
    Of course it may not be affecting you like it does me, as I am a diabetic.
    But if you can acclimate your palate to accept stuff like Stevia powder in place of the sugar you'll probably be a lot better off in the long run.
