  1. ps. I mentioned minerale salt as an useful source of both potassium, and also of natrium. So this is a very useful tip for many. A good and solid starting point. But its not enough, especielly not if you by any reason want to have a higher ratio potassium kontra natrium. Many groceries and fruits have a very high ratio of potassium. So, eat aplenty these groceries (and fruits if you arent ketosian). Tip: unmature, green bananas contain little sugars, but lotsa of fibers. So if you happen to be OK with the taste of unmature bananas, green bananas is a good source. Sylvie as we know, uses happily Cream of Tartar, a very rich source of potassium.
  2. You dont really tell much about your actual situation. So its difficult to analyse. But I get an impression, you are eathing healthy, including much vegetables. You have cut your calories to a sub level. You train a lot. And yet, you arent going down, being still "overweigh". And so its a problem for you. Now, lets hope you arent anorectic... Because anorectics may be verry thin by all accounts, but they themselves believe they are fat... You may be a natural here, dont needing much food. Alike a pony, whom gots fat as soon she has free access to fresh grass, even if she works a lot. You may have problems with thyroid hormones. (so a check up with your doctor is in order, both for the thyroid and other hormones, and possible anorexia - if you ARE too thin, doc will tell you this). I come to think about the funny but wise joke: Cookies dont contain much vitamines. So you must eat much cookies to get some vitamines... And there is a big kernel of truth in this joke. Normally if we eat our 2500+ calories a day, we usually get most of necessary nutrients even if the diet isnt perfectly balanced... That is one reason why very long the main demand on food WAS the overall calorie intake. For example, for soldiers. But if we cut down the food intake more than marginally, suddenly we need to think much more about the nutrients, vitamines, minerales... And remember our need of carbos isnt really high, we need more of fat and proteins. Even if it IS possible for humans to live much on carbos. The food must be balanced, and preferably, we shall take in also extra vitamine and minerale supplements. So this is really my suggestion too. Be sure you take suitable supplements, be it tablettes / pills or else. The official daily recommendation are often really not the optimal dosage, but its minimi dosages to not become sick. I know its true for vitamines C and D; both should be about 10x than the usual official recommendation, but I suspect it may somewhat bigger dosages are desirable for other vitamines and minerales too...
  3. So if you tend to overeat, next step would be to mind the size of the portions. We tend to eat up what is on the plate. So the easiest is to use smaller plates. And dont take extra portions. Sorry for my uneven english. English is my third language. Even if I do often participate on english spoken forums, but still, its uneven. There are also spices and foods, which increase the burning. Chili is well described, but its probably true for all peppers, because they all contain the same capsaicin?. The big studys had been done with chili, that is why everyone mention chili. But almost all peppers are useful There are surely also other spices. Also, cocoa oil burns nicely, and help with the burning of other fats too. Some use just cocoa oil as their leaning up device... Take coldpressed organic style. Nuts are good. They have much calories, but also they are burning nicely, so the practical net effect is better than the theoretical contains of calories. There are surely also other foods which are both healthy, and hasten up the burning.... Of course, in such studies they gets quite a lot of that preparates / foods. More than a normal person uses. But many small additions, and soon you are there. Just to be consistent. Also, its possible to get used to bigger amounts of say, black pepper, than an average person uses. Just buy a big jar with pepper, so it will be cheaper per kilo. Morning exercise before you eat breakfast. A brisk walk / running at least half an hour. Take coffeine before. You may take a little cocoa fat before you start; it will start up the burning. Wait with the breakfast at least half an hour after the walk, or at least, eat just slow carbos for breakfast. No sugar nor wheat. If you are on keto its of course no problem here, but not all are on keto. This advice is, because increased burning continues a while after the exercise. You dont want to stop this by eating quick carbos.... A brisk evening walk of at least half an hour, is also useful, by the same reason; ie increased burning which continues during the night. But dont take caffeine before the evening walk; you will get difficult to sleep. A 18-6 diet (or some variation thereof) may be useful to try. Ie, you eat between, say 9-15, and nothing during the rest of the time. OMAD one meal a day, is of course an extreme version of this. Or Sylvies pet variation, every second day... Being on keto, isnt even no big deal. because you arent hungry the same way as when still on carbo. I myself use 18-6, flexing by practical reasons into 16-8. This gives me possibility to get two planned meals a day, and even; a little plate of youghurt with lotsa of different healthy spices and ingredients in midways in the day.
  4. Ah, so this phenomena is the reality behind the karate films. When feks Mr Miyagi barely touches the opp, and he falls down although a big strong fellow... Or when Daniel san crushes a big ice cube in the same film. This is so because its a movie, but there IS a core of truth in there... Exactly as you try to describe it. A focused and relaxed strike tends to be more powerful than brute strength. Tx for this moment of insight!
  5. My spontane reaction is, baby and spouse (the main caretaker?) must have the priority. YOU and your training, you can always get there by bike / motorbike. This way you are easily movable. So, not too far from the gym, so the bike ride wont take more than max 10 minutes riding. But otherwise, plan for baby and main caretaker to have it comfortable. If you can find something such, it should be perfect. Unless, spouse and baby also wanna be at the gym... If so, the planning gets a shade more complicated. If you / spouse are used bike riders, its surely possible to have the baby at your chest in a carrier device. but this isnt in everyones taste and potentially dangerous. Otherwise, perhaps a small car is the best. costs more, but covers it all.
  6. I suppose the old time sallade blades, and spinach blades are among the best. Also, spinach blades are neutral in taste, almost a little sweetish, so you can eat them quite a lot, even if you arent fancied in the classical sallad-blade sallades. Most "above the earth" groceries are good. Berries are good too; both for being healthsome (lotsa of vitamines and antioxidants), and not much sugar. Fruits if you arent ketosian. Apples are excellent. Bananas have much potassium. If you are OK with not so matured bananas, they wont contain much sugar but contain much fibres and all the vitamines and minerales typical for bananas... Matured bananas contain much sugar and less fibres, so it cant be recommended for a person minding hers weight - or state of blood sugar. Ps. Im by instinct recommending lotsa of antioxidants. But I have learned, for active full contact fighters whom are always having lotsa of micro-contusions, much antioxidants arent good. Im not sure about the mechanisms,, it seems the oxidating agents indirectly helps with the healing of these micro-contusions.... So, my guess to summarize: if you are a full contact fighter, take antioxidants because they are necessary for good health, but dont take more than an average person.
  7. I suppose you arent no middle age+, fatty person, with insuline-syndrom, big belly thin legs, but sooner a youngish adult, training much? What is your exact purpose to cut weigh? Come into match weight; ie do a quickie for a couple of days, , or to make an overall cut off into a sport where being lean and not weighting much is always an advantage?? as for example long distance runner...
  8. Im glad my improvisation was useful to you. To summarize. Its of course always nice and beneficial to have superior cardio, be physically superstrong and able, and have a solid belly muscle armor. Both if you do Muay or any other sports, including Karate. But being a Karateke as compared with a Nak Muay, you will train less on these moments, but concentrate instead on the moments mentioned above. Why, you will get quite a some cardio and muscles "just" by doing the usual training, alike katas, explosiveness, reflexes, and so on. As long as you do them honestly, and arent resting and drinking water half of the time. Not least, because a typical Muay competition is full contact fight, while a typical Karate competition is either Kata, or half contact. As I know, full contact is done almost only on films... Kumite ? Unless you are a pro in elite class. If so, you dont spare on anything, are making sure you are topping off everything at once. Doing anything to get an edge over the other pros.
  9. You dont want to risk to hurt your sparring pard? its wise, of course. Try perhaps to spar with an experienced fighter, whom is used to get and manage some rough handling. Tell him / her its what the session will be about, so he / she wont get sour you are going all out although this is a friendly sparring... If necessary, jump straight inte the deep water, ie take a real fight, preferably with an opp more experienced than you. Because otherwise you will have the same problem: you want to win and beat up your opp, but you dont want to hurt him / her, not a beginner whom barely had began the carrieer.... A note re female Muays. In clubs in the West;, many of them are really into fitness. So yeah, they will probably be shrieking and protesting as soon it begins to hurt. Female muays do complains too about this phenomen. If you want to sparr reasonably hard hits, be sure you spar with a female whom is herself a wanna be fighter. These manage roughness much better than fitness models. Ask them before you begin in the sharp mode version.
  10. I suppose its best to mail there and ask... Both about costs and his recommendations about your injury. After all, as your coach he should be aware of it. Either train a little easier on you; or better still; learn you techniques compensating in a real fight... If its worth to drive in? If its a good teacher, yes. Look. Compare if you were a rider. or a dancer. Training mostly with your own local coach, and / or on your own. Yet you would do almost whatever you could, to regularly meet up with a top notch trainer. And get part of his top notch coaching lessons... Yes, you would do this even if your local trainer WAS good. But to get influences from another one good trainer, is wise. Even if in the second case, you wouldnt bother to do it every week, but be happy with clinics at least twice a year. Ps. As I understood it, our Sylvie had to drive in to her first sensei, Master K. Apparently it was worth it. I also presume, she trained also lotsa on her own at home. Physical training, shadow boxing, some mental training, such can be done even if you dont have access to a good bag nor pad holder. ps2. Use the driving time for something useful. If nothing else, to hear on a good audio book.... If so done, the long driving hours wont be no waste of time.
  11. I dont know much about Karate. But I suppose a wanna be karateke would do wise to train flexibility and body control, aside of some overall physical and muscular ability. Also, any exercise you can come upon on training quickness and quick reactions. Endurance is good, explosiveness even more important. I remember, when I saw a group of beginning karateke training, and I noticed their leader; be it the Sensei himself or at any rate; apparently a trained karateke. I remember his total body control. I got deeply impressed....
  12. Re dairy... Yes, I know some experts advice from dairy, endometriosis or not. Had you noticed or heard, if there is any difference between goats milk and cow milk? I think goats milk is easier to manage and digest by some whom are badly managing cow milk. Also, its goats milk which may be used as an emergency mother milk replacement by almost all mammals; be it kittens, puppies, squirrels, deers - and human babies. While cow milk is less so... (even if it seems raw cow milk is easier to digest than pasteurized and processed cow milk)
  13. Re electrolytes. As you surely know, you need more electrolytes, especielly K potasium and Mg magnesium, aside of the usual Na sodium. Here in Sweden we have a very interesting product for us ketosians. The so called minerale salt. Where, instead of the usual 99,8 of NaCl, the Na content is just 50%, K is 40%, Mg is 10%, and trace amounts of J... Exactly what the keto doctor prescribed. And Im salting with this freely. Not just some light sprinkling for the taste, but quite heavy. (yes, I have become accustomed to it, and also, to heavily use black pepper...). So, not any scientific measurement of electrolytes, but I think I get enough. Without using other specialized products... Yes, I too get a slight headache, and get somewhat dizzy when Im going into ketose... But I never got the so called Keto flu. Perhaps because Im heavily using this minerale salt? Also, I was living at least one year before on a lowered carbo diet.
  14. Without me being a woman nor expert on Keto (even if I myself am on Keto a year running). So with the risk of doing some mansplaining(?), I shall try to give my answer. Many ketosians use keto not as a way of healthy food status, bringing also harmony in their insulin and stress hormonal levels; but mainly as a way to reduce their weight. And so, to be on the safe side, are ALSO reducing much their calorie intake. And if so done, too few calories, its easy to get disturbances in the menstruation cycle for women. Double so if the keto diet has also disturbed nutrient status, too few vitamines, for example. Others are training too hard. Either because they are into elite sports. Or have a hard physical work, and not enough of good food. A typical example for both, are gymnastics girls. Where super hard training combined with strict low calorie diet are often causing late menstruation or no menstruation. So. As I understand it. IF you want to go down, wait with any radical cutting off of the totale calorie intake. Make sure you get all the nutrients necessary, and even - better them up. Also, make sure you are keeping your stress levels down. Sleep well. Use breathing techniques, etc. Whatever you find useful. When you are well and good in ketosis, feel well with it, everything is in balance, hormon levels as insulin and cortisol and other stress hormones are on low and nicely steady niveous; first then you can perhaps begin to cut down the total calorie intake. Dont worry, as you arent eating no candy nor sweets, no wheat, no etc... Your portions will be anyway automatic much smaller, and probably the calorie intake will ALSO be somewhat lesser; EVEN as you take much more fats than earlier....
  15. The question is, if you got this bunion / hallux vagus, from Muay, or from elsewhere. For example, too tight shoes. I havent noticed Muays have more hallux than other persons. Some do have this sticking out bone, but that is common in the overall population. A direct hallux vagus; yeah I have seen this occasionaly on a fighter, but its not common... Thai women seems to almost never have this. My guess is, they dont use high fashion shoes with tigh toe part forcing the toes together...
  16. You know of course about these different devices to hold back / hold straight the toes in these hallux vagus "bunions"? Cant hurt, may help. For the inflammatory process and pain involved, diklofenac paste as mentioned earlier, should be good. Of course, be double careful to use comfortable, no nonsense shoes or sneakers.
  17. Diclofenac- paste could help some. Its both strong anti-inflammatory and reducing pain. I suppose its possible to get at your place? Ps. I hope its not increasing the risk of bleeding. Salicyl-acid, as in aspirine, is increasing the risk of bleeding.
  18. A little aside note re punching / boxing moments in Muay. Im thinking on the match between Calista and Pheetjeeja a couple of years ago. When Calista was still the young promising european junior, trying to make a carrieer as pro in Thailand, beginning with not too difficult matches. (and yeah, she did managed just fine although a couple of setbacks). I dont know what Calistas manager planned. Did he thought Calista had now matured to meet a strong grandmaster, or did he thought it were nice for Calista to meet another good junior?? And Pheetjeeja, whom at this time abandoned Muay and become a boxer... Pheetjeeja thus did made here a temporary come back. It was visible she didnt no longer care much about what others thought... Why, she was no longer a Muay fighter: She did climbed in above the ropes! And as Pheetjeejas transition into a boxer was now done and complete, she hardly kicked anything. She just wore down poor Calista with series of heavy punches... Calista was brave, it was visible she was determined to endure whatever was coming... Whatever the costs... But after long and severe battering, enough was enough... I do admire Calista she did continued and took other difficult matches, becoming even a specialist on Kard Chuek. Thus. Well done punching and boxing does pays off in Muay too.... Ps. Pheetjeeja returned to Muay. Stronger and better than ever... She continues her tradition of not using her patented horrible horse kicks against women, but she has become instead a master of elbows... AND her hard punching, together with her fully mature physical strengh, AND all the technical skills she always had, makes her a fearsome opponent to any grandmaster.
  19. ps 1. The mosquitos I do talk about, are our european ones (and yes, some of them are able to carry malaria. In historic time malaria wasnt unusual in Europe. But I suppose the asian mosquitos species, they dont like garlic them either. ps 2. Observe, garlic is more or less harmful for cats and dogs. So we cant use them for defending our pets against ticks... Perhaps smear some on the collar??
  20. There are some home remedies and tricks of repelling biting insects, as mosquitos and bed bugs. I myself use garlic in capsules; one each day (no taste and no smell). Takes most biting insects, and also ticks. Apparently they dont like the smell nor taste, and dont bite the human whose blood tastes garlic. Im not saying its a fool sure defence, but perhaps 70- 80%.... I have noticed I get nowadays bitten much less than before. If you dare to manage without anti-malaria remedies, so with garlic as addition you should feel pretty safe... Or you can google on and try some other trick, or a combo. Garlic is also by itself a healthy supplement / food.
  21. An overprotective coach is a much lesser problem compared with a coach whom doesnt care, whom isnt YOUR ally.... I believe Sylvie has written about this aspect too. So while you should abandon and flee such an non caring coach and gym, I do hope its "just" to talk it through honestly and openly with this overprotective coach... Hopefully you will get a new balance. If not, you may think on changing gym - hopefully with this coach blessings and advice whom to choose instead. This problem reminds me about another but similiar problem. Its usually guys telling about sparring with females they dont know well. Ie, they often do avoid to sparr women, or take it supereasy on them. They dont wish to hurt the girls, nor get negative reactions from the girls nor their pals. There are several different aspects to see this. Some are entirely legitimate! As I see it, its because, in the clubs in west, its common many of the women training in Muay clubs, arent wanna be fighters, many are really into fitness. (Or beginners) So they fitness fighters are often technically decently knowleable, and thus able to do some good sparring, but only as long as its friendly and easy on them... But they dont wish to risk pains nor hurts... So a female Muay, whom IS a wanna be fighter, and thus, doesnt mind some rough sparr - yes even WISHES hard tough sparring - must tell about this. Or even herself challenge these guys or the more advanced female fighters present... To be honest, its not only a guy - female thing, this being overprotective, even if its the frequently described. I have seen female fighters, whom by the same reasons avoid to sparr against other women: the ouches and scared crys begins immediately the beating begins... I think the long term solution is to have some system of labels; essentially: Im a wanna be fighter; Im OK with serious sparring, even if it hurts some. Or; Im a fitness fighter. Im able to do technically advanced sparring, but it must be on a light and friendly niveu. And perhaps equvalents for beginners. The short term solution is, exactly as above, to try and talk with each other. Talk by mouth, body language, behavior in the gym... Good luck!
  22. Since a 10 month, Im living consistently on a LCHF diet. A relatively liberal one allowing me up to 50g carbs a day, still keeping ketose. And I do experimentate quite friskly with resistant starch. Yet I have no difficulty to remain in ketose, Thus, as far as I know, unbroken ketose during all these months. I suppose my two good hours of exercise almost every day helps me. A month ago I did bought a bottle of Trocadero Zero; a sort of fruity Coke soda, sweetened with aspartam and acesulfam-K. But no carbs. I drank 3 small glasses, less than half a liter. Next morning, my scale was a half kilogramme up (1 pound). Next evening the scale showed additional two pounds more! Broken scale?? But I did remembered, the other time I did bought Trocadero Zero, I too gained a pound... So it was no sheer coincidence! Whattsa matter? A bad batch containing sugar? Or a batch where they put on wrong label?? And it was really regular Trocadero with sugar? Both bottles were bought in my local shop. I mailed to "my brother in LCHF"; really my son living in another city, whom too is on LCHF... He told me; the batch was prob OK, but several "Gurus" had reported some people do react on aspartam + Acesulfam-K... They get blood sugar spikes... And may add a pound or two for a couple of days... OK. I leave the Trocadero to my wife whom is holding a common low carb diet, but no keto. And proceed with my usual keto diet.... Three days later I got dizzy a couple of days. Ie exact the symptom I got when my ketosis began once upon a time... Ergo: Warning for artificially sweeteners! Esp Aspartam + Acesulfam-K, but possibly also others artificial sweeteners. This barely 500 ml of sweetened soda threw me out of ketosis!!! If I did drank 500 ml of the regular sugar Trocadero or Coke, it would hardly throw me out of ketosis! Lessons? 1. Do avoid artificial sweeteners*. They may be OK for people whom just want to avoid sugar for diet reasons to spare on the calories, but they is no good for us ketosians! IF you really are dying for a sweetened soda, its probably less bad to drink the regular thing... Ie this soda sweetened by sugar... 2. Do not try to be sneaky, and drink juices sweetened with artificial sweeteners*... Juice may be healthy, but this is a bad compromise. Its probably much better if you eat a little of real fruit... A half apple? You will get all the vitamines while they are still fresh, and also the healthy pulp and fibers, and other parts in fruit - but not always present in premade juice... You must of course beware the usual 50g carb limit. Observe fibers is free quota; they dont need to count in the carbos, as they pass directly through the intestines. *Remark: There are some OK sweeteners. Stevia is wellknown to be OK, possibly even healthy. Monk fruit, and some others are OK too. The brand of Nicks is making good sweeteners for consuments to cook on. Sweets and even ice-cream... There are surely others good producents. But unless you know for sure a sweetener is OK, do avoid it.
  23. Less than 2000 calories AND all this hard working! Wow! If you would say 6000 calories a day, it would be easier to understand... Less than 2000 calories sounds more alike an office clerk, whom wants to have control and not get fatty... So what is going on? Is Sylvie a freak of nature, OR we must count calories totally differently when in ketosis-diet, compared with the usual "glucosis"-diet? Of course, there are few serious athletes on Keto. While all the usual litterature and experience is about athlethes living on the usual glucos-based diet. And its these whom must load with up to 6000 (or even more) calories a day while in heavy training. Or some workers in heavy jobs. At least, the males do. Its possible males need more, and hard workings males even more, than hard working women. ( I remember a russian film, with two siblings. Bro was doing Deca-athlethics, sis was doing gymnastics, both on top elite niveu. Bro ate as much he managed, sis ate sallades barely covering the plate... Being lean was more importanf for her than for him. Still, big contrast! - this is an anecdotical example, but perhaps still interesting. Ps. I saw the film as a kid, so I cant swear her portion was that dramatically smaller than his. What WAS a dramatic difference, was him eating as much meat he wanted, while she ate just groceries and green sallads. Not because she didnt had, but because she held a strict training discipline and diet. Everything to keep fit and lean!) So, my question, guess and hypothesis here and now, is, you dont need as much calories on keto as compared with when on "glucosis." Its much more efficient, amount wise. Thus you must count totally differently. Idea: This could in part explain how poor workers and small poor peasants managed in older times: they did lived de facto in ketosis. No sugar, few carbos, no quick carbos. The bread or rice they had wasnt white, but unrefined whole seed one. And they ate once or twice a day, so they were de facto on a 16-8 diet.... Ie, de facto on ketosis most of the time. They were lean, but they managed to work hard the whole long day, men and women.... A control question re Sylvie. I suppose you Sylvie didnt always lived on keto. What was yours Sylvie calorie-intake when you lived on the usual food, with the usual glucosis-glykogen combustion?? (sorry for my uneven english; english is my third language). 1. When you was a happy young woman, just doing some light training as most healthy persons do. 2. When you Sylvie started to do serious training and began the fighter carrieer??
  24. This is an interesting thread, and you got much good advices to think on and try with. Among them, this with electrolytes and possibly to better up your breathing technique, as Kevin mentioned. Faulty breathing technique is a common problem for less experienced fighters: many do witness they get out of breath early, although they train cardio much, and are in good overall shape. AND havent been hit much either... I suppose a complicating factor here is you must tension up your belly muscles. In fight, but also in serious training as you want to prepare for fights. Something which has been hardly mentioned as yet, my 2 cents here; , is vitamines and other minerales. It probably wont hurt with the type of pills; 14 vitamines and 11 minerales a day. Or if you are sure you have a good all round diet, perhaps every second day. Also, 1 capsule or 2 of Omega 3 oil wont hurt. Because the recommended dosage is typically not maximum, but minimum. So for example, the recommended dosage of vitamine D is very low. They say 5ug / 200 IE, but many experts tells 50ug / 2000 Ie is more suitable. Esp in winter season, dark skinned, people whom seldom go out etc. Many say much vitamine C is good. But the trick is, vitamine C flushes quickly from the body. So its wise to get it several times a day. If you use such a horse dose of 1g tablets; have it solved in a little bottle and sip from it during the day... Or break off a shard to every glass of your drinking water... Also, I too think you are possibly eating (somewhat) too little. You are burning off the kalories, man! As you describe it, I suspect you would fare well of more fat. ps. Talking about such extras: garlic, or capsules with garlic oil are good too. INCLUDING most sticking insects dont like the taste of garlic. Mosquitos, ticks, etc. Its no fool proof defence, but you wont be bitten as often as with no garlic. The capsules have the advantage you wont smell garlic. The disadvantage with this trick? Garlic is somewhat poisonous for cats and dogs, so you cant protect your loved pet with this against ticks...
  25. Re resistant starch. Let me put in here my 2 cents in this debate on keto and keto food. You dont need to eat it cold! Im no expert, but in part inspired by Sylvie I have now some experience with keto, Im now 8 months running on keto,. And had so far success with my keto, with my exercise, thus achieving quite nicely my aims. I use the milder variation, allowing up to 50g carbs, and this works good for me. Perhaps because I do train / exercise quite a lot (even if nowhere as much as an active fighter or athlete would do) OK, so I have heard about resistant starch. I know just vaguely the theory, but did tested it quite a much to get some variety and knowledge. It doesnt break off my ketosis! Recipe: I do cook fullcorn/fullseed pasta or rice, I do overboil it some. (Full corn/seed rice is what I usually do, but I DID tried with white rice too). Some cooling down, and into the refrigerator for the night. Next day I warm it up as usual for a hot meal, adding suitable extras as tuna fish. Lotsa of minerale salt (contains Na 60%, K 30%, Mg 10%), lotsa pepper, some goats cheese, lotsa coldpressed rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil mainly for the fat content, but also gives Omega 3 and vitamine E. I may eat even a full plate to test all out of this pasta or rice - 150g??... It doesnt break off my keto! Not that I do have any scientific method to know, but Im not feeling differently, not increasing in weigh by water bound to glycogen, and when I do my nordic walking forced walks the next morning, with double wrist weights on, I dont get no down periods midways, as I do while on the usual glukos burning.... Full energhy level. I may get somewhat tired in the leg muscles, but the energhy level as such is unaffected. By the same reason I eat happily ready made potato sallad (a good brand with much potatoes, rapeseed oil, few additives, and hardly any added sugar). Thinking it was boilded and cooled down... EDIT. So it seems these resistant carbos never goes into the body. They seems to go further down in the intestines as a prebiotic... A sort of inverted and perfect "empty calories" and "belly fill"... It may be its in partly individual, and more research is surely needed, but this is clearly promising. And yeah, I have seen similiar results on Youtube made by ketosians and lecturers on keto diet. Why, I have even tested ready made meals, "TV-dinners", also frozen small pizzas and pie... Reasoning they are perhaps resistant starch them too, because they were ready made, and frozen cold... I was STILL in ketosis.... Quite astonishing. This is nothing I do recommend to eat these ready made industrially made portions. Its much better to make real food from real ingredients. But its nice to know; it is doable if in a pinch or you are longing after an occasional change... Its also my way to help out our local village shop, buying from them as much I can....
