  1. He's flat out wrong when he says athletes are depleting all their glycogen in an hour and a half. The average adult stores about 300g of glycogen in their muscles and an additional 70-100g in their liver. A high level athlete burns about 30g of glycogen for each hour of activity. It would take 12 hours to deplete muscle glycogen. That's a heck of a lot longer than an hour and a half like this guy is incorrectly saying.

  2. Listen to this clown contradict himself almost immediately. He says everyone is biochemically unique and requires a different diet (no they don't, sorry, humans do not get a special exemption no other species gets) but then goes on to say that humans don't need carbohydrates! And yet all top level athletes consume a high-carb diet, gee, I wonder why?

  3. These days everything is either/or. I don't take "experts" with this attitude seriously. You don't have to remove any macro-nutrient. Most people eat too many carbs, but why not reduce carbs instead of removing them? T
    he body doesn't "need" carbs in that you won't die without them, but having carbs in your diet is optimal for athletic performans. This is simple: look at what 999.9% of top athletes do. It's not HFLC. And if you think they're ignorant, you're wrong. They know what works.

  4. According to people like Dr. Stephen Phinney and others who have been studying – and experiencing – nutritional ketosis for more than a decade, the 'keto flu' can be mostly or completly avoided by:
    – drinking plenty of water (even athletes sometimes forget to do this),
    – increasing their intake of salt slightly (a natural salt with trace minerals, like Himalyan or Redmond NTM is best – and more flavorful),
    – and taking a good magnesium supplement
    Kicking the carb habit can be difficult… but after the first few days, for most people, the cravings pretty much go away. Hunger in general goes way down, as their are no spikes and slumps in energy like when the body is running on carbs.

  5. +Russ Scala what are your thoughts on using the ketogenic diet for sports that primarily use the ATP/CP or Glycolytic pathways? I read that Type 2 muscle fibers don't use fat and primarily use glucose and CP to generate ATP so will this affect the generation of explosive power needed for say powerlifting or weightlifting? Please answer in detail if possible. Thanks in advance.

  6. Heya, The best success that I have ever had was with Zoes bikini plan (just google it) Without a doubt the most helpful diet that I have ever tried.

  7. I'm about to try the ketogenic diet and I'm wondering… should it be applied for just a certain amount of time – e.g. 6 months or maybe in cycles… or it could become a lasting change for life? Anyone out there who lived with it for years?

  8. I think it's so sad that so many people are still putting HFLC down before actually listening to some of the science and benefits, and even giving it a try. Once you feel and use periodic ketosis and become adapted its like being in wonderland!

  9. I am 52, getting back into shape, have a fair amount of muscle, lifting heavy, sprinting etc. 178cm/5'10" and used to weigh 97kg / 213 pounds for years. Over the last year I worked hard, put on 3kg of muscle and lost 4 kg of fat despite my Testosterone levels being well below normal range. ( I refused to do hormone replacement) . Decided to go on ketogenic diet coupled with intermittent fasting while continuing to train hard. Dropping about 2kg/4.4 pounds a week, down to 90kg already. I have been able to keep up my training which is 2 x sprint session per week, strongman workout on one day, heavy leg day (squats and deadlifts) plus 2 upper body sessions. It's tough but no tougher than when I was on carbohydrates before. In the gym I outlift most 30 to 40 year olds. So the point is that all this is possible. Stop whining and get after it !

  10. I don't know of a single crossfit athlete or wrestler that can compete on a low-carb diet. I'm a believer in HFLC but not for certain energy demands. Yes/No?

  11. I have been on high fat diet in the morning for around 3 weeks now, its amazing how losing body fat became easy, in addition it helped me build more muscle with enough energy finish up my bodybuilding training, we have been fooled not to eat fat

  12. How can anyone with a single functioning brain cell not accept what Russ and so many great scientists and healthcare professionals are showing us. To read the idiotic comments such as Andrews here would be sad if was not so comical. Not only is he blind but he is a fortune teller to predict the future.
