    The Keto Diet - a Diet for Longevity? What Science Says

    For nearly a hundred years, scientists have been researching a method to slow down aging by reducing dietary calorie intake.

    Experiments on a variety of organisms, from yeast to rhesus monkeys, have shown that life expectancy can be increased if energy consumption is reduced by 10–30%.

    The mechanisms of this phenomenon are still under discussion, but it seems that it is based on a shift in metabolic processes from carbohydrate metabolism

  • For the First Time, the WHO Recommended Physical Activity for Those Who Sit a Lot

    A sedentary lifestyle, compounded by the pandemic's quarantine, increases the likelihood of premature death. However, this harm to health can be compensated for by increased physical activity, experts from the World Health Organization write.

  • Top 8 Myths About Immunity

    Top 8 Myths About Immunity

    The very concept of "immunity" was born in the 19th century thanks to the French microbiologist Louis Pasteur and the Russian scientist I. Mechnikov.

    At first, however, immunity was understood as the body's immunity to infectious diseases.

    But already from the middle of the 20th century, as a result of research work, it was proved that immunity protects the body not only from microbes but also from any other genetically foreign

  • What Fruits Can I Eat on the Keto Diet?

    What Fruits Can I Eat on the Keto Diet?

    Let's take a look at the most painful keto question - can we eat fruit on the ketogenic diet?

    On keto, we avoid fruits and allow ourselves a small amount of berries. No keto rule raises so many questions and protests. “Fruits are vitamins! We have eaten them from time immemorial!

    What about antioxidants, flavonoids, and other beneficial substances? Microbiota! What does it eat? " - beginners are lost. “Fruits contain fructose, and fructose

    Keto and Holidays: Going Out or Staying in Ketosis? What is Better?

    Keto is for a long time. It is not a diet but a way of life. I have written about this many times. Choosing a time before long holidays to enter keto is not a good idea unless you plan on staying in ketosis during holidays.

    Whether to stay or not is an individual matter! I'll tell you what I did. And I tried to stay and go out. In general, this article is full of repentance and experience.

  • 10 Main Reasons to Include Butter in Your Diet

    10 Main Reasons to Include Butter in Your Diet

    For several decades, people have been convinced that the use of butter has a negative effect on the condition of the coronary vessels. As a result, the product's reputation has been severely damaged, and many have almost stopped including it in their diet, preferring "safer" vegetable fats.

    Meanwhile, recent studies have shown that the health harm of butter is greatly exaggerated: in fact, it has a number of unique properties that make it essential

  • What Fruits and Berries Are Absolutely Forbidden on the Keto Diet

    What Fruits and Berries Are Absolutely Forbidden on the Keto Diet

    Today, let's dig into one of the most controversial topics of the keto diet: can you still eat fruit on the LCHF diet?

    Proponents of "proper" nutrition will defend passionately the right to eat fruits. These are vitamins! Keto followers no less violently will talk about the poisonous fructose. The truth, as usual, is somewhere nearby.

  • Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet

    Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet

    A low-carb breakfast helps reduce fluctuations in blood glucose levels throughout the day.

    After breakfast, blood sugar rises sharply, because cereals, toast, and fruits are often eaten for breakfast. (Someone will say that they have breakfast with fried chicken, sausages, or cutlets, but the fashion now is still for cereal and fruit breakfasts.)

    But cereals and fruits have a lot of carbohydrates, and that’s a “sugar splash” in the

  • Do I Need to Wash Meat Before Cooking?

    Do I Need to Wash Meat Before Cooking?

    Washed means clean. Usually, this logical chain is not in doubt. We shower, wash clothes, do wet cleaning, and wash vegetables before slicing our salad. It seems that everything that comes into contact with water is cleansed and gets freshness.

    A 2019 experiment showed that washing raw meat or poultry carries a risk of intestinal poisoning.

    Three hundred people were divided into two groups and offered to cook a chicken dinner.

    Previously, the meat was artificially

    For many years, doctors have recommended limiting the consumption of chicken eggs. Some people are so afraid of cholesterol that they exclude eggs from their diet altogether, or they eat only protein and just throw away egg yolk.

    Meanwhile, scientists have conducted a lot of research that has proven that egg yolk is

  • Scientists Have Proven That the Human Body Is Not Adapted to Carbohydrates

    A new study has confirmed the so-called "mismatch hypothesis" that to stay healthy, you must eat the foods to which the body was adapted during evolution.

    The abrupt shift from the traditional diet to the western one - rich in carbohydrates - leads to the development of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

    To verify this, researchers from Princeton studied the Kenyan Turkana people.

  • The Harm of Table Salt Is Exaggerated

    The Harm of Table Salt Is Exaggerated

    Reducing sodium intake with table salt lowers blood pressure in people with high blood pressure. Therefore, public health authorities recommend a low dietary sodium intake (<2.3 g / day) to lower blood pressure, which is equivalent to less than 5.7 g / day of salt (NaCl).

    This is expected to reduce cardiovascular outcomes (stroke, heart attack, etc.).

    However, a research team from Australia demonstrated that lower sodium intake is paradoxically
