Been reading a lot about keto, trying to dip into the science. I am not in any way capable of understanding all of what I read because some are written by scientists for scientists. So a layman like me often get confused and overwhelmed.
Today google brought me to youtube, a place I’ve been trying to avoid for a while due to all the begging and nagging (subscribe and patreon nag! - make better content and folk will view it) and covert advertisement but I felt a little crazy today so I took a quick peak.
I don’t know how accurate the science is, because this is not my field of education. But this guy Ivor Cummins, an engineer I believe had
three 2 videos that really made an impact on me. He being an engineer and not a health care professional he used language and terms that seems easier to understand, and he referenced the studies he talked about. Haven’t yet looked it but seems legit. It seems to me he explained what I’ve read elsewhere but for the average joe. And there was also two follow ups. They are all intertwined and helped me understand more about insulin resistance, inflammation, heart disease etc.
Just thought I should share, as others too might having a struggle to grasp all of this, the inner working of keto, fasting and how crucial insulin resistance is and how glucose levels might turn out to be a false indicator. In short, keto seems to the the right path to avoid all kinds of serious helt issues. Not only diabetes, heart and vascular problems but many more.
Hopefully someone with more knowledge of all this have already seen those or will give it a glance and tell me and others that might view this Ivor C’s worth his salt?
For those of you with vast knowledge or health care background this might be child’s play, but for me I feel I got a better understanding. At least I now know what subject to dig into next to gather more information and help my understanding even more.
Video 3: Want to Fix your heart disease?
Note: on the second video there was one of the things I don’t like about youtube. The guest on the podcast did in fact happen to have a company that sells “special” vitamin K. One of the things he promoted in the video. I didn’t catch that very last part with him promoting himself on the first viewing, probably my mind was wondering. So hard to tell if his statements are legit or just another marketing video when he ended it all by telling us how superior his products are. In my eyes the guest speaker kind of lost all of his cred when he started to promote his own brand in the very end. Feel I wasted time viewing the second video. Because how can I trust any of what he said during the podcast when all he really wants is to push his own products?
