Calorie Restriction Hurts Brain Function

In a study published in the journal CNS Spectrum, the researchers conducted their research in a group of 220 healthy non-obese patients, minimizing the effect of weight loss. Subjects in the CR group ate 30% fewer calories than the control group and after two years, there was an improvement in working memory in this group. The longitude and sample size of this study gives this study scientific validity.

You Have to Eat Right After a Workout

Anabolic Window

Per the The Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology, protein synthesis is elevated 24 hours after heavy resistance training and then decreases.

The study found that Muscle Protein Synthesis is elevated in humans by 50% at 4 hours following a bout of heavy resistance training, and by 109% at 24 hours following training.

It concluded that following a bout of heavy resistance training, muscle protein synthesis increases rapidly, is more than double at 24 hours, and thereafter declines rapidly so that at 36 hours it has almost returned to baseline

Have to eat Multiple Times Per Day

Study - Cell Metabolism

19 participants fasted for 14 hours per day/ate within a 10 hour period each day, for 12 weeks

With 10-hour TRE for 12 weeks, researchers observed significant reductions in body weight from baseline (3.30kg, [3%])

Low Carb will Slow down Your Thyroid

Using keto as an example, a study published in the journal Diabetes & Metabolism looked at the effects of a keto diet on thyroid function is 6 healthy subjects

During the keto diet, concentrations of fat derived substrates (free fatty acids, glycerol and 3-hydroxybutyrate) rose significantly and glucose levels decreased, and there was a fall in insulin levels and a rise in glucagon concentration

A significant fall in triiodothyronine (T3) and rise in reverse triiodothyronine were observed, while thyroxine (T4) levels remained unchanged

However, this occurs regardless of the type of “diet” you’re on:

Study - Thyroid

47 subjects underwent a 12-month individualized dietary intervention aimed at achieving a 5-10% weight loss - they lost an average of 6.5%

After weight loss, T3 decreased significantly in the absence of significant changes in TSH or free T4 (fT4). The decrease in serum T3 correlated with the decrease in weight

Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that get chemically modified by the attachment of sugars

AGEs, as their name cleverly implies, contribute to all manner of chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s.
