'heroin makes you feel great too!' dr Bryan Walsh keto summit
anyone else that was as discouraged about keto as I was after listening to :
Interpreting Your Blood & Lab Tests More Accurately and Effectively
??? Seems to conflict with almost every other doc I’ve heard but what do I know ? I DO FEEL great on so many levels on a keto but as Bryan said ‘so do people on Heroine ‘ ??
Umm. That is a completely false equivalency. Yes, people feel great temporarily on heroin. Then they feel miserable. Then it often kills them. Whereas done right, you can feel great on keto forever. The link to whatever nonsense this is from didn’t post so I can’t get any more context than that but, just on its face, that is a stupid premise.
He was 1 of 31 experts on the 3 day Keto Summit. He was basically saying that while many say that they feel great on Keto his lab results for people on Keto long term show othwrwise, which I guess is why he felt he needed to make the analogy to Heroine??! It was shocking to hear…But there he was on this same venue KetoSummit ?
- I know Bryan for quite some time and he knows what he’s talking about. What I’d stress out is differences in between men and women in what it means “healthy keto” (I know Bryan was pointing that out in the past). While men can be absolutely fine (and thrive) on less than 50g of carbs per day, for women anything around 50g can be really dangerous. Even though our body can make some glucose from other substrates (via gluconeogenesis) – around 80g per day if needed, it is not enough for pre-menopausal women. Glucose is needed for HPA axis to be functioning properly and if there is lack of glucose for this purpose, you can easily loose your menstruation cycle for good and totally mess up your hormones. It is “quite rare”, but I’ve already had this kind of patients… I assume this might be one of the examples that Bryan was referring to.

Ah. So an “expert” on an internet “summit” said so. OK.
I’d still like to see some evidence.
I’m female and have been in keto in both my pre and post menopausal life and my hormones are just fine.
Anyone using click bait headlines comparing keto to heroin use loses a lot of credibility to me.
