Keto Flu Is Not A Flu: The Dangers Of Keto Flu

Keto flu is not a flu at all. Do not allow these nice Internet-friendly euphemisms to fool you. Flu is by definition an acute respiratory disease, most often provoked by a virus. The body’s immune system fights the virus, and, with or without additional medicine, the virus eventually dies. In any case, flu is caused by an external factor.

Immune system is useless here; if not addressed and treated […]

Why Ketogenic Diet Is A Lie

When I first bumped into the ketogenic diet definition, I thought this concept was a joke. No, really. I thought “why would anyone wanting to get rid of excessive fat in their body would intentionally eat even more fat?” For me, this is like managing wildfire with a flame thrower, or to fight the flood pouring more water into the body of water. Insane. Do you actually know the mechanism the ketogenic diet plan is promised to use? Here it is, as stated everywhere: “Carbs are bad for the body because they cause diabetes. Fats are good because they do […]

How To Gain Weight Without Exercise

– We will have to take you to the hospital for two weeks and inject a synthetic hormone on a daily basis, – the doctor told me. I was scared and stressed out. -But doctor, maybe the reason is that I lost too much weight? – I asked. – Usually, I weight about 52 kgs, while now it is 44 kgs… -That does not matter, – she said sharply. Well, it seems that it does, I thought. I came back from our two months hitchhiking journey, and visited the doctor because my period stopped. She took blood for analysis and […]

Why Excluding Products From Diet Does Not Work

Remove these five products from your diet and you will start losing weight! Exclude this one product from your diet to lose weight! Avoid these products to start losing weight immediately! Meh. What a nonsense. This shit with fast weight loss diets will never work. Unless you eat TONS of some really specific product that can cause weight gain (like fat meat, or tons of chocolate), excluding one random product won’t change anything in your routine. Yup, you can feel the difference if you exclude, say, meat. Or dairy. Or vegetables. Or sugar as such.   But these are categories […]

The winter holidays are close, and more and more people tend to ask if they can actually drink alcohol and lose weight simultaneously.

How To Keep Warm and Lose Weight in Winter

If you are interested how to lose weight in winter, you may be among those 95% of people who actually tend to gain weight during the cold season. I am among them. We all spend a cosy winter and by April, we are desperate about the beach season we are totally “not ready” for! Right. In winter cold, all that is needed is hot meal, hot tea with a cinnamon bun, and not going anywhere. The very idea of going out to the gym, undress there (br-r-r-r-r!), try to warm up, and then go back home is terrifying. The idea […]

Why Diets Never Work

Most diets for weight loss never work. You find an diet for weight loss that promises fast and easy weight loss. You are inspired, somewhat nervous to start, because you will lose weight and your life will change. You enjoy the very though of new you, slimmer, sexier, irresistible. So proud of yourself and so successful. You are full of determination: “THIS TIME, ALL WILL BE DIFFERENT. I will do it this time!” You start the diet, and… in most cases, not much happens. Your bitter disappointment is aggravated by the thought that the diet for weight loss is, in […]
