Welcome to the Optimising Nutrition Podcast.

In this episode, I wanted to give you an overview of my book, Big Fat Keto Lies, which clarifies the most common misconceptions and mistakes with low carb and 'ketogenic' diets through the lens of Nutritional Optimisation.

  • Keto Lie #1: ‘Optimal ketosis’ is a goal and more ketones are better
  • Keto Lie #2: You have to be ‘in ketosis’ to burn fat
  • Keto Lie #3: You should eat more fat to burn more fat
  • Keto Lie #4: Protein should be avoided because of gluconeogenesis
  • Keto Lie #5: Fat is a 'free food' because it doesn’t elicit an insulin response
  • Keto Lie #6: Food quality is not important, it’s all about insulin and avoiding carbs
  • Keto Lie #7: Fasting for longer is better
  • Keto Lie #8: Insulin toxicity is enemy #1
  • Keto Lie #9: Calories don’t count
  • Keto Lie #10: Stable blood sugars will lead to fat loss
  • Keto Lie #11: You should ‘eat fat to satiety’ to lose body fat
  • Keto Lie #12: If in doubt, keep calm and keto on
