#12 : Keto Diet
On Episode 12 of the Musashi R&D Sessions Podcast, Ross and Dhiren dig into one of the more prominent sports topic in contemporary dieting – Keto. The guys compare the keto diet to other diets, its advantages and limitations for specific athletes, and how to most effectively implement it into an everyday routine. We also explore the concepts of ketogenisis and ketosis their effects, how they’re activated and how they’re measured. In sports news, the guys discuss topical updates in the AFL and NBA isolation hubs, the most recent Formula 1 race mayhem, and the outcome of Rob Whittaker vs Darren Till on Fight Island. This episode we finish with a pair of listener questions on the benefits of exercising in the morning versus the afternoon, and our own tics or rituals performed in the gym. R&D manage to guess the origin of a famous athlete quote pitched by Hal the Intern, and Dhiren applies the philosophy of Miyamoto Musashi to the topic using the quote: “Perceive that which cannot be seen with the eye.” Remember to comment and leave a review and we’ll get in touch to send you a free Musashi T-shirt!  Scientific References: - Foods that are high in potassium: https://www.webmd.com/diet/foods-rich... - Difference between ketosis and ketogenisis https://wikidiff.com/ketosis/ketogenesis - Nutritional Ketosis for Weight Management and Reversal of Metabolic Syndrome https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... - Nutritional Ketosis with Ketogenic Diets or Exogenous Ketones: Features, Convergence, and Divergence https://journals.lww.com/acsm-csmr/Ab... - The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance Jeff S.
