Keto Myths – Debunked!

In episode 60 of The Low Carb Universe Show, we debunk some of our (current) favorite keto myths!

This was sparked by a comment in an online group about that the brain apparently dies on keto from not getting enough carbs? This is, incidentally, the first myth being debunked!

All of these myths are things that we’ve heard and seen around the keto-sphere for a while, and some of them keep coming back again and again.

Follow along as many more keto myths are dispelled throughout this 27 minute episode. And don’t miss Hanna’s explanation why Diabetic Keto Acidosis and ketosis aren’t the same thing. Also, don’t miss the legendary garlic chicken recipe we talk about – it’s legendary!

How to treat illnesses on keto

  • how their first treatment of illnesses has changed, and how they differ from each other!
  • What supplements does Hanna take to combat early signs of illness? What does Bitte drink?
  • When are, for example, antibiotics needed and when was the last time these two had to take them? (Hint: one is even current!)
  • Why does Bitte think it’s fun to go to the doctors?
  • What’s the deal with Keto Crotch?!
  • Exciting new speaker announcement for the signature event LCU19 in November in Mallorca! (Hint: Power Rangers!)

Censorship, or How One Swedish Idea Could Be Detrimental To Science

Today, Bitte and Hanna discuss a new idea presented in one of the largest newspapers in Sweden as a debate article. And, sure enough, there is enough to debate about it!

The idea is to add a sign of approval to health and science books by an “independent source” to show which ones follow “science” and not, as there are potentially harmful advice in some books. This has been brought forward but five professors and medical doctors, clearly worried about this issue.

Bitte and Hanna discuss this, rather censorship-like, idea through the points of:

  • what has happened to common sense and thinking for yourself?
  • how will science evolve if people aren’t allowed to think outside the box anymore?
  • isn’t this essentially censorship?
  • the value of N=1 (or thousands)?
  • what science would this stamp of approval be based on? And who interprets it? And what’s the criteria?
  • the importance of individual research.

Bitte and Hanna’s conclusion? Everyone should have a choice of trying what improves their health – you do what works for you!
