One can starve themselves for as long as they like, so long as they have fat stores - and sufficient B5 to make Coenzyme A - and the body will efficiently burn fat - AND NOT GO INTO KETOSIS. This is the brilliance behind Leung's theory. I keep saying it because if you are on a low-carb diet, low calorie diet, and you enter Ketosis - this indicates a B5 deficiency.
I've never seen someone die from starvation and still be fat, so they went so long without food,they ran out of b5 and thus couldnt use the fat they were carrying
First thought that comes to mind is the Movie, CASTAWAY or the kids in africa, BOTH starving and no B-vitamis
so you are saying Leung proves that ketosis is not because of a low/no carb diet? but because of a lack of B5?
so no B5 and yet you still burn fat??
you have a link to that paper?
I musta missed it
what I understand about ketosis, I learned from the keto-man, aka, lyle mcdonald., who wrote
[b]The Ketogenic Diet: A Complete Guide for the Dieter and Practitionerhttp://www.bodyrecomposition.com/the-ketogenic-diet
The Ketogenic Diet is the first and only book to objectively examine in-depth the scientific evidence regarding low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets. It is meant to be a reference manual for low-carbohydrate diets; it is unlike any other book on low-carbohydrate diets that you have ever read or seen.
Covering every topic in extreme detail, The Ketogenic Diet addresses everything from the basic physiology of how the body adapts to a low-carbohydrate intake, the details of human fuel utilization, the impact of low-carbohydrate diets on body composition and many, many more.
Of course, none of the above is useful without practical application guidelines. Details on how to optimize low-carbohydrate diets for different goals (such as fat loss, bodybuilding and endurance performance) are discussed along with three distinct types of low-carbohydrate diets. In addition, the book includes a complete discussion of resistance, aerobic and anaerobic exercise physiology along with specific training programs for different goals and different levels of trainee
At 325 pages and containing over 600 scientific references, this will be your complete reference for ketogenic diets.
Please note: this book does not include information on the ketogenic diet for adolescent epilepsy (the topic is discussed briefly). I highly suggest The Ketogenic Diet: A Treatment for Epilepsy, 3rd Edition (Paperback) by Freeman, Freeman and Kelly (link will take you to Amazon.com page).
