#25 Adam Tzur – Ketogenic diet fundamentals, carb and protein intake limits and issues with keto studies
In episode 25 of The Muscle Engineer Podcast I’m joined by Adam Tzur of the Sci-Fit website for the first part of many episodes where we will take a deep look at various aspects of a ketogenic diet.
Topics discussed with time stamps:
3:10 Adam’s background, what made him start this series and how the data collection went
11:12 What is ketosis, how it differs how ketoacidosis and how is it typically measured
19:20 What should the macronutrients ratio be in a properly set up ketogenic diet and how does activity levels influence them?
23:21 Does a high protein diet “kick people out” of ketosis?
29:50 Missing the forest for the trees when following a ketogenic diet (eating “empty calorie” high fat foods, chasing ketone levels etc)
35:07 The most common conflicts of interest when it comes to studies examining ketogenic diets and supplements
50:00 How to determine if a study is actually trustworthy or if it’s been influenced by bias?
