Diet and health are what it is all about. So now it isn't just low-carb anymore, now we need to look into the ketogenic diet with emphasis on a high-fat diet (70-75%) and moderate protein. If that were not complicated enough the new trend (with scientific evidence to back it up) is intermittent fasting.
That is eating only one or two meals with a 4 to 8 hour window--or even just one meal a day without snacking!
- Whole-day fasting involves regular one-day fasts. The strictest form would be Alternate day fasting (ADF). This involves a 24-hour fast followed by a 24-hour non-fasting period. The 5:2 diet allows the consumption of 500–600 calories on fasting days.
- Time-restricted feeding (TRF) involves eating only during a certain number of hours each day. A common form of TRF involves fasting for 16 hours each day and only eating during the remaining 8 hours, typically on the same schedule each day. A more liberal practice would be twelve hours of fasting and a twelve-hour eating window, or a stricter form would be to eat one meal per day, which would involve around 23 hours of fasting per day.
Now I have another curve ball to throw at you; cooking food--especially meat--make food unhealthy, the higher the heat the more damage.
Cooking isn’t bad, of course. It makes food taste better, gives us access to a wider range of foods.....But there’s a dark side to cooking. Depending on the methods and ingredients you use and the temperature you apply, cooking can create carcinogenic and toxic compounds, and oxidized fats – and these may be involved in some of the diseases studied. It may not be the meat itself, but how we treat the meat.Well, there you have it folks, the full circle on diet--so far.
