TheKetoPod – Insulin, calories & weightloss
Welcome to the first episode of TheKetoPod!
Scientific papers disproving insulin hypothesis
- Disproving the Insulin hypothesis – Kevin Hall – Energy expenditure and body composition changes after an isocaloric ketogenic diet in overweight and obese men
Papers showing insulin release from fat
- Incretin hormone and insulin responses to oral versus intravenous lipid administration in humans. Insulin release from fat intake
- The ingestion of saturated fatty acid triacylglycerols acutely affects insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity in human subjects
Paper promoting calorie hypothesis
Paper showing insulin resistance and lower rate of weight gain
Papers showing insulin sensitivity and growth factors in children
Fat metabolism with carbs: The carbohydrates ensures that the citric acid cycle can take care of all the acetyl groups formed by the fat. Acetyl groups enters the citric acid cycle, or krebbs cycle, by reacting with oxaloacetic acid to form citric acid. The cells therefore need new oxaloacetic acid, and forms pyruvate ions, which in turn comes from the glycolysis.
Fat metabolism with fat: In the absence of acetyl groups oxalacetic acid will instead react with each other and form ketones, which drives the beta oxidation. And that is technically how fat burners burn fat in the absence of carbohydrates.
