I disclaim almost everything. I’m a biologist, not an M.D. I’m not qualified to assess medical conditions and make recommendations. I have opinions based on what I’ve learned from experts in the fields of anthropology, evolution, medicine, physiology, and nutrition whose work I’ve read. Some I’ve corresponded with. I have some practical experience based on my background in endurance sports, plus the experiences of my friends in the Tucson Trail Run Series. My background in evolutionary biology informs some of my perspectives, too.
Read what’s here, go read the sources I’ve cited, then form your own opinions. Experiment. Ketone adaptation, for example, takes 10-14 days to accomplish. Everyone I know who’s tried it has gotten similar results. One friend had the highest High Density Lipoprotein score his doctor’s office had ever seen.
