Keto Diets: Muscle Growth & Bone Density

“Keto Diets: Muscle Growth
and Bone Density” An official International Society
of Sports Nutrition position paper covering keto diets notes the
ergolytic effects of keto diets on both high and low-intensity workouts. Ergolytic is the opposite of ergogenic.
Ergogenic means performance-boosting, whereas ergolytic means
athletic-performance impairing. For nonathletes, ketosis may
also undermine exercise efforts. Ketosis was correlated with increased
feelings of perceived effort and fatigue and mood disturbances during physical
activity, suggesting that the ability and desire to maintain sustained
exercise might be adversely impacted in individuals adhering
to ketogenic diets for weight loss. I already mentioned the shrinkage
of measured muscle size among CrossFit trainees. So a ketogenic diet may not
just blunt the performance of endurance athletics, but
strength training as well. Have people do eight weeks of all
the standard upper and lower body training protocols— bench press,
pull-ups, squats, deadlifts— and, no surprise, you boost muscle
mass, unless you’re on a keto diet, in which case there was
no significant change in muscle mass
after all that effort. Those randomized to the nonketogenic
diet added about 3 pounds of muscle, whereas the same amount of
weight lifting on the keto diet tended to subtract muscle, an average
loss of about 3.5 ounces of muscle. How else could you do
eight weeks of weights and not gain a single ounce of
muscle but on a ketogenic diet? Even keto diet advocates call
bodybuilding on a ketogenic diet an oxymoron. What about bone loss? Sadly, bone fractures are
one of the side effects that disproportionately plagues
children placed on ketogenic diets, along with growth stunting
and kidney stones. Ketogenic diets may cause
a steady rate of bone loss, as measured in the spine, presumed
to be because ketones are acidic, and so keto diets can put people in
what’s called a chronic acidotic state. Some of the case reports of children
on keto diets are truly heart-wrenching. One 9-year-old girl seemed to get it
all— osteoporosis, bone fractures, kidney stones— and then
she got pancreatitis and died. Pancreatitis can be triggered by
having too much fat in your blood. A single high-fat meal can cause a
quintupling of the spike in triglycerides in your bloodstream within
hours of consumption, which can put you at risk for
inflammation of the pancreas. She had a rare genetic disorder called
glucose transporter deficiency syndrome where you’re born with a defect in
ferrying blood sugar into your brain. This can result in daily
seizures starting in infancy, but a ketogenic diet can be used as
a way to sneak fuel into their brains. So a ketogenic diet can be a
godsend for the 1 in 90,000 families stricken with this disorder. As with anything in medicine,
it’s all about risks versus benefits. As many as 30% of patients with epilepsy
don’t respond to anti-seizure drugs, and the alternatives aren’t pretty,
including things like brain surgery. This can mean implanting deep
electrodes through the skull or even removing a
lobe of your brain. This can obviously lead
to serious side effects, but so can having
seizures every day. So if a ketogenic diet
helps with seizures, the pros can far outweigh the cons. For those just choosing a
diet to lose weight, though, the cost/benefit analysis would
really seem to go the other way. Thankfully, you don’t need to
mortgage your long-term health for short-term weight loss. We can get the best of both worlds
by choosing a healthy diet. Remember that study that showed
that the weight loss after being told to eat the low-carb Atkins diet
for a year was almost identical to those told to eat
the low-fat Ornish diet? The authors concluded: This supports
the practice of recommending any diet that a patient will adhere
to in order to lose weight. That seems like terrible advice. There are regimens out there,
like The Last Chance Diet, which evidently consisted of a liquid
formula made from leftover byproducts from a slaughterhouse that was
linked to approximately 60 deaths. Well, it did promise to
change people’s lives. An ensuing failed lawsuit from
one widower laid the precedent for the First Amendment
protection for deadly diet books. It’s possible to construct a healthy low-
carb diet, or an unhealthy low-fat diet — a diet of cotton candy would be
zero fat — but the health effects of a typical low-carb
ketogenic diet like Atkins are vastly different from a low-fat
plant-based diet like Ornish’s. Not only would they have
diametrically opposed effects on cardiovascular risk factors in theory,
based on fiber and saturated fat and cholesterol contents of their
representative meal plans, when actually put to the test,
low-carb diets were found to impair artery function. Over time, blood flow to
the heart muscle itself is improved on
an Ornish-style diet and diminished
on a low-carb diet. Heart disease tends to progress
on typical weight loss diets, actively worsen on low-carb diets, but
may be reversed by an Ornish-style diet. Given that heart disease is the number
one killer of men and women, “recommending any diet that a patient
will adhere to in order to lose weight” seems irresponsible.
Why not tell people to smoke? Cigarettes can cause weight loss, too, as
can tuberculosis and a good meth habit, but the goal of weight loss is not to
lighten the load for your pallbearers.

    Any diet heavy in corpse flesh is a carnists dream. The 'good news about bad habbits' adage. They just don't want to feel hungry all the time…and are not exposed/aware of calorie dense food. The more information out there, the faster things will change. Thanks for the video Doc.

    Can somebody do a test. We know for most people cholesterol increases on keto. What happens to the TC/HDL ratio and triglycerides compared to high complex carb approach? then correlate this to Sones, and Cleveland Clinic Studies 1979 where they took all the blood work of patients a month before bypass surgery

  14. Android Posted on September 16, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    All in this video may be true but its also completely contradicted in endless other studies that prove how a balanced keto diet can do EXACTLY the opposite this video says it can't. Day in day out we hear the opposite information of just about any subject these days!

    You know what? Life is short.. eat whatever you want in a balanced manner and keeo smiling.. that's how you keep your arteries (and mind) opened.

    Keto changed my life for the better. That's all I know. I feel awesome, and being hard and "un-fat" finally is a plus as well. I laughed at keto, and hated on it.. until I learned I was never actually in ketosis, and learned how to do it correctly. Once I mastered it, it became AWESOME! No hunger, incredible recovery. Better sleep. No hate, just the way it is.

    Thank you Dr. Gregor for noting the studies Dr. Dean Ornish has done on plant based diets. He doesn't get enough attention from YouTube vegan/plant based channels. Have known his work since the 80's and his excellent UNbiased research via Stanford/UCSF.
    And that he is responsible for getting medical insurance companies and Medicare to cover his classes for heart patients, who need to reverse heart disease which is 98% less expensive than major bypass surgery or a heart transplant. His classes are excellent and involve medical check ups and are plant based, and also include simple lifestyle changes.
    Now if something could be done about the many 'vegan' YouTube channels that push processed vegan foods that are often high in fat, salt, sugar and ingredients you can't even pronounce.

  24. chris howard Posted on September 16, 2019 at 11:00 pm

    i see that practically everybody i follow on youtube who practice the keto diet also do intermittent fasting… is it possible/probable that the benefits they get are purely just due to the I.F? I'm studying nutrition throuh the royal society for public health here in the u.k, but i also have 2 sisters who are epileptic, so, i'm a little torn in opinion, until i learn more.

    Also known as M1316V or p.Met1316Val, rs1061325 represents a common variant in the clathrin heavy chain like 1 CLTCL1 gene on chromosome 22. The (T) allele is associated with the Met (M) codon, and the (C) with Val (V), as represented on the forward/plus strand. A 2019 publication gathered a fair amount of attention in the popular press by speculating that the V1316 allele has a selective advantage in processing carbohydrate-rich diets (presumably including those with lots of sugar) of farmers compared to the M1316 allele found at somewhat higher frequencies in hunter-gatherers (who theoretically consume fewer carbs). The authors suggest that heterozygotes may have a selective advantage, with M1316 homozygotes presumably most prone to developing insulin resistance on modern diets. https://elifesciences.org/articles/41517

    Keto Shmeto… There are so many people who "try" the keto diet for mass-market weight loss and end up quitting for a number of reasons, good reasons. This fad will pass… Maybe to be replaced by the "Fibo" diet… (because there has to be another fad for the diet industry) "Lose all the weight by eating 80% fiber, blah, blah, blah…"

    Mother Nature put everything we need on this earth for us to thrive in great health. Plants grow in wild abundance – all colors, so many delicious consistencies… It's really not complicated. But, most people (the confused, unaware & misled masses) think there must be some "secret trick diet", lol…

    Onward we go, folks.

    Ok, That's all fine and dandy, Dr. Greger, but what's the evidence to show that a little meat once a week is going to be bad for muscle mass/synthesis. As a plant based athlete, I would like to know how even a little meat disadvantages the body. Thanks.

    Bone density by other means. Bone-Up provides StimuCal ossein MicroCrystalline HydroxyApatite (MCHA) (from free-range New Zealand calves), which includes the superior combination of the inorganic calcium lattice of MCHA within an organic protein milieu. StimuCal is rich in native type I collagen—the predominant protein found in bone—and has been clinically demonstrated not to disproportionately spike calcium blood levels as do other forms of calcium, such as the carbonate and citrate salt forms. StimuCal is combined with vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 (as MK-7 [menaquinone-7] from natural fermentation [a more bioavailable form of vitamin K]) to support the proper deposition of calcium into the bones, as well as assist in building up the bone matrix.* Bone Up also supports cardiovascular and arterial health.*

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Post-Op Bone growing fast

    Size: 180CAPSULESVerified Purchase

    Take this stuff. It is a miracle. I had a second neck surgery at 45 C-3 on June 13th. Was a vegan for a long time and former smoker. First fusion from C-4 to C-7 took years to recover then I started taking Bone-up to get ready for top level to be replaced and the doctor said it takes 6-12 months for bone to grow. Went for follow-up today and c-3 already has bone growing. The Stimucell in Bone-Up can not be compared. I was in bed for years. Take a directed. 3 times a day. I took more 2X4, plus extra collagen in coffeeI dont do dairy but I am convinced this product has huge impact on fast recovery.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Option for Calcium & D3 Intake

    January 29, 2018

    Size: 90 CAPSULESVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )Verified Purchase

    If you need a supplement for calcium and D3, I would absolutely suggest the Jarrow line of Bone Up products. You will gnat to decide for yourself which variety. This one is "3 a day", others can be taken as 6 a day, and it can be a bit much as these are not small capsules.

    The main issue is your body can assimilate only so much calcium at a time, so you have to spread these out. With this variety that comes down to 3 times a day. if you take the others that give you a dose in 6 capsules, you can do 3 and then 3, as opposed to 2/2/2. It really comes down to your schedule, and how you want to consume these.

    As far as performance, there is no magic bullet for bone deficiencies, however, I feel this supplement is beneficial, and does;'t have the same risks as many prescription solutions, which only add a build-up onto your bones. That is my personal opinion, no medical background or training, etc.

    As far as the product quality, I am a big Jarrow formulas fan, and find their stuff to be very high quality and never with any junk ingredients.

    I have been dealing with knee pain over a year. It was so bad that even few steps used to hurt.

No more pain.I feel great. I bought 3 more and send it to my mom and dad to help them with their joint pain recently. I hope it works for them too

    When I went on the Atkins diet years ago I threw up blood and had to go off it. But when I went on Dr Ornish diet after I saw him on Ted talks, I lost 100 pounds, and my doctor said I no longer had a cholesterol or blood sugar problem. SO for me at least, plant based is the way to go. I had gotten off track for a bit and so went vegetarian for 2 months and then vegan for 1 month and my cholesterol went down 79 points. So I know plant based is best for me !

  63. Paws Posted on September 17, 2019 at 3:23 pm

    Can I ask an honest question? How does the body burn fat? Is it when there is no more glucose in the blood and liver left to use, forcing the body to burn fat? Is that process called ketosis or is it something else? If it is ketosis, then why is the keto diet bad – is it just because the keto process goes on too long? Am hoping someone with brains can help me, as all these competing diets and theories are so confusing!

  64. AIIiecat Posted on September 17, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Basically I am reclaiming my health that deteriorated from veganism!

    Low carb diets are gaining popularity because people feel much better when they aren't bloated, constipated, and suffering from excessive gas all the time. When you ditch the grains, beans, processed foods and calorie dense carbs and eat meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds instead you feel better.

    You got to love the truth. Repeated high doses of acid causes inflammation of the kidneys(eventually causing Chronic Kidney Disease). Which lowers kidney function. Which weakens the immune system. Which reduces your ability to fight disease( cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure,heart failure, stroke, etc.).  Eating any animal (beef, chicken, fish) causes large amounts of acid.  Eating plant protein does not.  One in six people have Chronic Kidney Disease.  One in three people over 65 have it.  Most people that have Chronic Kidney Disease don't know they have it. There are no symptoms until kidney failure.  If you have not had a full blood panel done recently, do so.  It also measures the efficiency of your kidney function.

    Not here to advocate for any diet, but I see that most of those studies have missed the "Modus Operandi" of Keto diet :

    1º – You start gradually. Reducing Carbs and Adapting your body for what's to come (Low-Carb diet)
    2º – Once you are getting adapted to low carbs, start eating more fat, but only to "Teach" your body how to keep up with that…also start reducing even more Carbs ( < 20 g / day ).
    3º – After 1 or 2 weeks, you intruduce Intermitent Fasting (the twin brother of Keto Diet).
    4º – At the same time, start gradually reducing Fat intakes, forcing your body to Burn internal Fat.
    5º – Don't stay in Keto for too long ( 1 or 2 months is enough). Return to Low-Carb diet and stay for 1 month, at least, until you can afford another cycle of Keto.

    Protein intakes also need to be moderated (25%). Vitamins and Minerals Supplementation is highly advisable.

    The first cycle is harder…better keep it short.

     To summarize : Low-Carbs for long term (all life)…Keto is better in cycles. Both need adaptation.

    I'm eating more vegetables than ever before, but the problem is, it's quite oily. The only option we have around here is white rice. Am I better eating white rice and reducing the oil, or keeping up the greens, fat and keeping it low carb? Currently, I'm losing a lot of weight. Too much, in fact, on what I'd imagine is keto. Not sure if I'm truly in ketosis considering the Chinese love to slip in as much sugar and cornstarch into the food as possible

    The effects of the fatigue can be seen mentally in the lazy research and poor arguments of keto proponents.

    I don't think people have really given a low fat diet the chance it deserves. I watch the people at the grocery store and fat people eat like fat people. I tell people I eat oatmeal, beans, and rice or noodles almost every day and have lost 40 lbs and they don't think that is possible. I tried a meat diet first and lost 20 lbs. I didn't like it and switched to a whole food, mostly plant based diet and continued to lose the same amount of weight. I pick foods on the glycemic index that are medium or lower and eat 3 meals a day, no snacks. They have it kind of right with the low glycemic index, but they take it too far. Fats are not filling, no more than sugars. They're just empty calories.

    As informative as the first minute was regarding the keto diet, I could not get past the jeff goldblum impersonation.

    Dubious Synopsis. 1. the mentioned CRP rise was negligable 2. The more important Interleukin 6 value was lowered.
    Since I train 6 times a week for a Triathlon, I cannot with certainty asure you about muscle gain. Also my Motivation might be higher as usual. I dont eat a lot of animal fat besides fish. In my experience a slightly adjusted Ketogenic diet, with small intakes of carbs during Cardio Sessions has had no adverse effects.

    A primal health video recently suggested the vegan diet causes mental illness!

    This is yet more evidence that supports not using the ketogenic-type diets, which are primarily used to reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures in children, for those genuinely interested in maximizing their health and functional longevity. My goal is to live long and finish strong, which, based on nearly forty years of personal study, is the whole food plant based herbivorous eating model (long term use of the keto models is untested and unsupported).

    We agree, meat based diets add more muscle than low protein high fat diets. Thanks for confirming.

    People on keto diet choose to be weaklings. And at high risk of osteoporosis. And brain fog

    Ehh i eat meat and vegetables never felt better. No need for startchy carbs.

  94. misterbobdobalina Posted on September 20, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    All these studies are questionable in pro or anti keto cases. I believe in watching how your own body reacts and responds to diet is way better than dogma. People are obviously chasing the dollar and their egos.
