Not really much about swimming underwater (2)

Just a one liner after all the discussions about breath holding on a fat based diet:

Effects of Twenty Days of the Ketogenic Diet on Metabolic and Respiratory Parameters in Healthy Subjects.

The first person I came across doing this practically was a LC blogger back in my early days (probably 2002-ish) and I didn't realise why she was LC eating to manage her chronic lung disease, from the metabolic perspective. She was very focused on saturated fat, obviously (with hind sight!). I've not been through the above link's full text but you all know the depths of stupidity of most saturophobes. If this was corn oil and MCT based... Perhaps we could get a significant O2 consumption drop given some butter, dunno. Nice to see some medics taking this seriously!


With apologies to whoever put this up on Facebook, one of those saved links but no idea who it came from.

What is the Facebook page/group where such articles are circulated? I'd like to follow it!

Hi there, I am not a scientist and the lingo on your informative blog can be hard to follow. As an asthmatic finding relief on a ketogenic diet, can you explain the mechanism in layman's terms? Thank you.
