Doctor Explains What Happens To The Human Body When It Goes Into Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet)

From a young age we’re taught that eating three meals a day, plus snacks, is healthy and necessary for the human body to function normally, and this rhetoric still dominates North American food guides today. Mark Mattson, the Current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, once asked:

Why is it that the normal diet is three meals a day plus snacks? . . . There are a lot of pressures to have that eating pattern, there’s a lot of money involved. The food industry – are they going to make money from skipping breakfast like I did today? No, they’re going to lose money. If people fast, the food industry loses money. What about the pharmaceutical industries? What if people do some intermittent fasting, exercise periodically and are very healthy? Is the pharmaceutical industry going to make any money on healthy people?

Pharma companies were instrumental in lowering the blood pressure standard recently as well - so they could sell blood pressure medicine!

They don't want healthy people - they can't make any money on them!

A good start would be to get rid of sugar and processed food in your diet. I just recently realized that I don't have to eat three meals a day!

My doctor recently said to me, "Fats are good. Carbs will kill you."

no...simple carbs...refined flour, sugar, and alcohol will kill. Complex carbs are an important part of a good diet.
