Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream

I need a boost that is fat most days. ?

Avocado is one of the most healthy low carb foods you can have. Low in carbohydrates, high in healthy fats, and packed full of nutrients, dare I say it is crucial for a low fat keto diet. It’s smooth and buttery and used as a fruit in Asian nations. As a result, it’s incorporated in a lot of ice cream sweet desserts, and smoothies! Coconut cream makes the shake more decadent and has a high fat content.

This is great as a dessert when you need something sweet as you binge-watch your show, or after dinner. There’s some prep time. Use a bowl for mixing the chantilly coconut lotion, preferably stainless steel. You could also replace another sugar replacement for allulose.

With whipped coconut cream and some grilled coconut cubes, we ’ ve topped this in the pictures.

Yields 4 portions of Fat Boost Smoothie with Coconut Chantilly Cream.

The Preparation

  • 1 moderate avocado, halved
  • 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons allulose
  • 2 ounces water
  • 8 oz ice cubes
  • 1/4 tbsp vanilla bean paste

The Execution

1. If the can of coconut milk has separated, whisk together until fully incorporated.

2. In a blender, add vanilla bean paste , coconut milk, allulose, water, ice cubes, and the halves.

The $12M NuSI/Ludwig Study ~ Part III: Some "Early" Lessons

SUMMARY

Continuing on with discussion of:

Effects of a low carbohydrate diet on energy expenditure during weight loss maintenance: randomized trial

In Part I, I discussed some issues with methodology, largely focusing on the reduced Run-In Phase that probably compromised the results irreparably.

In Part II, I highlighted a critical issue with the Run-In Stage, the objective of which was to create a somewhat homogeneous”reduced weight state” to test various diets in maintenance of the state.

Finally, since randomization into the various test diets occurred after weight loss (PWL) randomization to maintenance evaluation diet wouldn’t influence the effects of various BSL (pre-weight loss baseline) measures on the Run-In outcome — target = 12 percent ± 2 percent weight loss — on a normal composition diet for all:  45% Carb / 30% Fat / 25% Protein.

The researchers seem to have made minimal adjustments, if any, during the Run-In Weight reduction in order to create a uniform outcome.  Rather, the result was a wide assortment of weight loss (5.6 to 16.0%, roughly 10.5% ± 5 percent ). 

Thus we have an”accidental” test-within-a-test of the CIH/TWICHOO from those”early” results.

In the long run, I provide these scatter plots for all 105 subjects who successfully completed the study, for whom complete data for insulin measures and energy expenditure were available at all time points.

The Carb-Insulin Hypothesis (aka TWICHOO) forecasts that weight loss will vary inversely with insulin levels:  The higher the insulin levels, the lower the weight loss.  The Run-In Stage data supports no such relationship (indeed, if anything, absolute weight loss was higher for those with higher baseline insulin steps.

Meanwhile, differences in weight loss are easily explained by variation in caloric deficit throughout the calorie restricted Run-In due to coarse estimation of baseline energy expenditure (vs. rigorous measure).

This post expands on some relationships of baseline (BSL) and post-weight loss (PWL) steps as detected during the weight loss part of the Run-In Phase.


Bottom Line:  Baseline insulin status appears to be irrelevant to weight loss on a”high carb” calorie-restricted diet.

Keto Starbucks Guide: How to Order + Full Nutrition Info

If it s the supreme Keto Starbucks Guide you’re after… you ve come to the right location! I’d hate to admit how much time I spent typing all of this information out, but I keep telling myself it ’ s for the greater good. And that works for me. At any rate, let’s get this chunk …

Is fat bad for our guts? Let’s ask the bacteria…

Intestines Sketch with Guts Bacteria

A new randomized study out of China is trying to tell us fat is bad for our microbiome, and the headlines came flowing.

U.S. News: High fat diets do no favors for your gut bacteria

NZ Herald: High fat diets hurt the useful bugs within us

Eurek Alert: High fat diet linked to unfavorable changes in gut bacteria and inflammatory triggers

If we believe it?

The study in question took 217 Chinese adults and randomized them into low carb (20 percent of calories), moderate-fat (30 percent ) and high fat (40%) cohorts. Away, red flags should be popping up on your brain. If the high fat group is eating 40% of the calories from fat, where are the remaining calories? 48 percent of the cohort’s calories came from carbohydrates.

Haven’t we learned that joint high-ish high-carb and fat diets tend to have the health consequences? Adding fat to a system overwhelmed with high insulin is not a fantastic idea. See 50 decades of Standard American Diet (SAD) history.

Red flag #2 should have you asking,”Where’s the fat coming from?” The majority of the intake was from soybean oil. It’s absurd to assume that soybean oil, an industrially produced seed oil, has the same consequences as real-food-based fats out of eggs, cheese, avocados and meats.

Red flag #3 (as if we need any more) should have you asking,”Can we really know what the alterations in our microbiome mean to our long-term health?” I understand that all studies can’t be studies measuring outcomes like longevity, death and heart attacks, so we need to pick markers to follow to give us an idea about health. The key, however, is picking surrogate markers which we confidently know correspond to clinical outcomes. It’s still quite a ways away from helping us make decisions, while the research shows promise.

If we would like to know the ramifications of a low-carb diet on the health we will need to actually test a high-fat diet that was real, based on food not oils. We need to measure outcomes. It might be hard, but that is the path to reality, if we want answers.

Livestock Do NOT Increase Atmospheric Carbon

Livestock do NOT add to atmospheric carbon Because They’re part of the natural carbon cycle.  

The eat plants which extract CO2 from the air, and they return CO2 into the atmosphere (just as we humans do on each exhalation), which in turn feeds plants.   There can be the plants they consume ALWAYS extract carbon dioxide from the air, and no net increase in carbon from numerous livestock since livestock ALWAYS consume plants!

This carbon cycle is essential to life on earth.

In contrast, burning fossil fuels takes carbon that was locked up in fossils (not in the atmosphere) and releases it into the atmosphere.

The idea that livestock are the drivers of changes in the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere is simply bullshit.
