Lloyd, Kito, United States discussed on The Keto Answers Podcast


Say, zero point, eight grams per kilogram body weight is is nitrogen balance. While if you go up to one point, six, that doesn't mean that you only needed zero point eight to maintain nitrogen balance. And the rest was all excess that you're going to get rid of it because their way that can either explode like most people think well, no, but it doesn't mean that, but it also doesn't eve but might. But so I mean, that's one aspect of it, but I'm making the point that. That what what you need, like your expenditure of protein is going to increase? What do you spend protein? Well, protein isn't just supporting your muscle mass protein is what you used to make all of your enzymes. Protein is what you use. Protein is important, supporting talks affiliation and antioxidant defense. Protein is what you use to make the proteins that allow things to get in and out of your cells like protein is is used in all of these physiological processes and the studies that showed nitrogen balance reused for the RDA we're looking at any of those things, right. So how do you conserve your nitrogen when your body can seize that it? It's deficient in the diet. I well, you probably make a lot less of all those of all those enzymes and receptors and hormones, and all kinds of things that are made from protein. So you. You, we really need to study more where the points of like supporting sun indicator of health is, but there on there is some research on their such as like, what is optimal for your for your bone health? What is optimal for your body composition and that research is all heading in the direction of supporting closer at least one point, two grams per kilogram body weight, which is it's approximately a half a gram per pound of body weight. Which I think is in the in the United States, people are going to have an easier time thinking in in grams per pound, but that, but that's not really my point about the Kito diet. I'm not really thinking about the protein and thinking about the other nutrients. So when people are on Kito, the people who are avoiding protein for the purpose of getting higher Kitone levels and are pushing their protein a lot lower than that are way more likely to become deficient in nutrients than people who are trying to hit the like one point, two grams per kilogram, or you know, maybe a little higher than that. The reason is that that has hardly any nutrients in it except some fats have fat soluble vitamins in them. Most fats aren't that rich and fats label vitamin. So like butter is pretty good source, fats vitamins. Certainly egg yolks are predominantly fatty, and they're source fat soluble vitamins. But most fats I mentioned red oil before red palm wills, very rich and keratin Lloyd's vitamin e. but like coconut oil has like no vitamins in it. And that's close like olive oil has no vitamins in it to speak of really. There's some polyphenyls in all of will. So if you're if you're diet is overwhelmingly fat to the point where there's hardly anything else in it, then you're really freezing out the nutritional value of animal flesh and plant foods. So if you did, if you did a Kito diet, where you hit the protein targets that I was mentioning before from ant from meat that meat is going, it's not just protein that meat is going to supply B-vitamins that meat is going to supply minerals that meet will be as long as you know, like drain all the juices out when you cook it that me. It's an important source of potassium. And if you then also take whatever your limit for carbohydrates is. I mean, even if you only have twenty grams of carbs day to spend, you can get a lot of certain green vegetables in that can be really important sources of fully like me really important sources of potassium..
