How to get into Ketosis in 24 hours

So you want to get into Ketosis in 24 hours? This is not as simple as some people think but it certainly is possible. The other thing is also that everyone reacts differently. Some people enter the state of ketosis faster than others.  People with a higher or faster metabolism will enter ketosis faster, this are the same people that are already thinner so no luck for you if you are more than  just a couple of pounds overweight. Here is an article that describes what ketosis is on Wikipedia. And what is the main reason to enter Ketosis as fast as possible? Well I saw some articles stating that people want to lose excess fat fast but this is just silly. A couple of hours of difference won’t make any difference to how much weight you lose in one month. You must be realistic, yes you can lose weight fast on a keto diet but it will not happen over night and first couple of days you will be mostly losing water weight. No the main reason to enter ketosis fast is because it is not pleasent to be glycogen depleted and not yet be in the state of ketosis. You feel sleepy, without energy, some people even have headaches or mild flu symptoms. How ever you look at this it is not pleasant until your body starts producing ketones and you can effectively start using fat as the primary energy source. So you want to progress through this...

MCT oil vs Coconut oil on Keto diet – speed up Ketosis

Among the many forms of saturated fatty acids is “MCT.” MCT is an acronym for medium-chain triglyceride, which is packed up with a score of health benefits. The benefits involve better cognitive functioning to effective weight management. The MCT might have crossed your radar throwing you in a state of contemplation over whether it is better than coconut oil. Coconut oil is undeniably one of the great sources of MCTs, but there is a subtle chasm between them to which many of us are oblivious. About 62-65% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCTs. MCT in real is a more concentrated version and is quickly gaining popularity. Another name for triglyceride is “fatty acids,” therefore MCT is also called “MCFA” which stands for medium-chain fatty acids. The misconception that all forms of saturated fats are potentially harmful has eradicated these fatty acids from our diets. However, the consumerism culture has prompted the research to unveil a lot of facts regarding saturated fats. The ideal MCT consumption, like coconut oil, is daily. The popularity of these medium-chain fats is soaring ever since the revelation that relinquishing fat is actually unhealthy. MCTs and other healthy fats that are a component of coconut oil or grass-fed beef are digestible. In comparison, the long-chain triglyceride- LCTs are difficult to cut down and less likely to benefit the heart, prevent obesity, and improve brain health. If we look at the traditional population residing in the tropical areas, they have been consuming saturated fats...

How to swim in cold water without wetsuit and stay warm

Swimming in cold water and stay warm without a wetsuit. Is it possible? Can you train / prepare for it? Can it be pleasant? My tips on how I mastered swimming in cold water (by cold I mean swimming in water bellow 11°C/52°F). I always had problems going into water that wasn’t warm enough for me. It was never something I would say is a pleasant experience for me. Even on holidays in height of the summer when water was actually quite warm I needed some time to get in. Yes I was a bit of softy back in day 🙂 Cold water adaptation Some time ago I found out about this guy, he is sort of a super human as he holds several world records for various achievements. To mention some:Swimming under solid ice, being buried in ice for more than one hour and so on… So I started doing some of the things he is teaching. One of the things was doing cold showers in the morning. Cold showers have many proven benefits for the human body and are a great energy booster. What I discovered was that after a couple of months of doing cold shower I had no more problems going into cold water. We went to a beach once in early spring and the water had about 10°C/50°F. Everyone on the beach was mostly just taking a walk and people were mostly dressed in jackets or long sleeves. I decided to go for a swim...

Breathing during Asanas (Yoga Poses) Importance and benefits, Pranayama beginners guide

One of the hallmarks of classical yoga practice is a use of ujjaye pranayama – wave motion breathing. Ujjaye breathing and developing breathing exercise into pranayama enlivens our life-force. In asana practice there are three fundamental rules for the breath patterns. 1. Inhalation occurs as you extend the spine and exhalation occurs when you release tension in your body and relax. When practicing yoga, our rhythmic breathing is harmonized to be at the pace with body motions. For example, starting with Tadasana (standing position), we lift our arm up and we inhale during this motion. The inhalation will be complete when the arms reach full shoulder flexion, with fingertips aimed at the ceiling. Similarly, when we exhale and we lower our arms to our sides and we slowly run out of breath when our arms touch our sides. 2. Inhale when you move to center or become erect and exhale when moving away from centered position. It’s important that we are aware of motion and breathing patter and that we know when we are moving slowly into forward – bending position we extend ourselves, lightening our spine with each inhalation. We move forward with each exhalation. 3. Our breath awareness is constant, even when our body is stationary. When we hold an asana (position) our attention should remain on the internal wavelike flow of ujjaye breathing. Our intention is to deepen physical pose by continually going into a wider range of motion. Yoga regulates all four parts of the breath:...

Increase testosterone and growth hormone with intermittent fasting 16/8 – boost anabolic hormone secretion

Intermittent fasting increases testosterone and growth hormone levels We have already discussed about the benefits of doing intermittent fasting and we also mentioned the benefits on secretion of testosterone and growth hormones in your body. Many studies have shown that any type of fasting – prolonged time without any intake of calories – increases levels of anabolic hormones such as testosterone and growth hormone. Having an abundant supply of testosterone and growth hormone makes the difference between being a proud man or just a miserable boy. Both hormones are highly anabolic and are therefore the primary male hormones responsible for a multitude of necessary body functions. The positive effects range from strengthening bones, building lean muscle mass to driving your libido and increasing your sex drive, testosterone is also the key to healthy lifestyle. Natural testosterone levels peak for men around the age of 30 and growth hormone even earlier in your 20’s, both then begin to decline based on a number of factors such as lifestyle, diet, stress and genetics. Low T-levels may come with symptoms such as mood swings, loss of sex drive, and decreased levels of lean muscle mass and the same goes for low growth hormone levels. Therefore it is vital to keep your anabolic hormones at optimal levels. Intermittent fasting greatly increases your own body’s growth hormone (HGH) production In this human study, the researchers discovered that after 24 hours of consuming no calories, growth hormone levels were elevated by a whopping 2000% from the...

Tachyonized water, energised water for detox and blood pressure – my experience with it

So I was reading an article where they were describing the benefits of Tachyon or Tachyonized water and they claimed some interesting things about it. I started researching the topic of Tachyonized water and I found more and more positive things and reviews from people seeing benefits from using it. Here is a post on a forum that also describes nicely the effects of Tachyonized water. What is Tachyonized water First of all what is Tachyonized water? Your regular everyday water is treated with a special process of Tachionization that does not alter its chemical composition, but with insertion of tachyons it causes its modification on water subatomic level. Such water has enormous vital potential. This process modifies the water in a way that enables entrance of tachyons into our physical body and thus accelerates detoxification processes, strengthens the immune system and increases bio-energy level. Tachyon water should never be used in a concentrated form. Rather dilute 7-10 drops of pure tachyon water in a glass of ordinary water and consume once or twice a day. Store in cool and dark place. Research behind Tachyon water And is there any research behind it? What are researchers saying about it. Researchers around the earth have demonstrated the positive and substantial life-enhancing effects of Tachyonized Water. It is a key component in evolving oneself towards higher levels of vitality and well being. With the Tachyonized Water charging the Subtle Organizing Energy Fields (SOEFs) of every cell in your body, it bypasses the blood-brain...
