Previously, Ray and myself sat down and talked about new trends within the nutrition realm regarding a growing movement of limiting carbohydrate and increasing fat intake. This has been labeled as “Low Carbohydrate – High Fat” lifestyle. More strict forms of this is also known as “Keto” which is short for ketogenic, meaning that limiting carbohydrate intake reduces the body’s ability to utilize glucose for energy. Therefore, ketone bodies are produced and utilized for energy. However, this lifestyle is not without controversy. Many individuals and organizations are fighting hard to preserve a traditional macro- balance, primarily of carbohydrates with limited amounts of fat. The pendulum doesn’t stop there though. As further extremes are growing more popular. Those are a “carnivore” lifestyle in which a person eats nothing but meat and fat, and veganism in which a person eats no animal products in any fashion. These topics and more are discussed between Ray and myself in this conversation.
