Obesity, Bulletproof Coffee and Afterwards

I started losing weight when I bought Dave Asprey’s 2015 publication of “Silicon Valley Style: The Powerful Diet That Will Change You.” At the time, I had high blood pressure, and I was 172 cm tall, weighed 83 kg, and had a BMI of 28. However, when I actually did it, I found a problem, so I improved the method myself. Asprey’s method involves adding butter and MCT oil to the coffee for breakfast. Certainly, this will switch from a carbohydrate-dependent body to a ketone-dependent body, reducing hunger at lunch and eating less lunch. However, the part of hunger that the brain senses is suppressed originated from the drop in blood sugar, but the feeling of hunger that the stomach is empty remains. It was quite difficult to put up with this, but Kasugaya’s konnyaku udon (https://www.amazon.co.jp/stores/%E6%98%A5%E6%97%A5%E5%B1 %8B/page/73D9A60C-0E1D-4F95-A7D3-AE3A42368F27?ref_=ast_bln) resolved this problem by using. Konjac(konnyaku)  have only 9 k calories as the lunch. This udon has a slightly unique smell, so I put it in a colander, wash it with tap water, boil it in a pot for about 5 minutes, and fry it with vegetables and meat in a frying pan with oil. Thanks to udon. I was able to lose 10 kg of weight and my physical condition improved. However, a major problem arose when a blood test was performed in a health checkup. It means that the LDL cholesterol in the blood has exceeded the standard value line. This number went up year by year, so I used bulletproof coffee without butter. Skipping the butter doesn’t had much of an impact on hunger control, so I’m continuing with it. I now have this diet 3-4 days a week. I noticed something interesting when thinking about this bullet proof coffee a little scientifically.  Supplement NMN is very popular because it works to activate sirtuins, but NMN changes to NAD+ in cells and activates sirtuins. Now, when sugar (glucose) is decomposed in the mitochondria inside the cell and turned into energy, 4 NAD+ are consumed and disappear. On the other hand, when ketone bodies are decomposed into energy, only one NAD+ is consumed. Considering the large amount of NAD+ consumed in cells, you can see how important it is to switch to a body that uses ketone bodies. Experiments with mice switched to ketone bodies have been reported. (https://www.cell.com/cell-metabolism/fulltext/S1550-4131(17)30490-4). Mice on a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates had a 13 percent longer life expectancy. This corresponds to 7-10 years in humans. The much-controversial “ketogenic diet” stops the body from consuming glucose (as its primary source of energy) when carbohydrate levels are low, instead burning fat to produce ketones. It is based on the principle that you get the energy you need. The research team classified the mice into three groups. One group followed a ketogenic diet, the second a normal diet, and the third a diet low in carbohydrates and fat. They found that the life expectancy of mice on a ketogenic diet was significantly increased. In addition, the high-fat diet improved motor functions such as memory and strength. In addition, it seems that there was also an effect on the incidence of tumors. (https://www.cell.com/cell-metabolism/fulltext/S1550-4131(17)30490-4). Mice on a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates had a 13 percent longer life expectancy. This corresponds to 7-10 years in humans.

 My wife is a good skier and has a license, so we enjoy skiing every year. With my technique, I can’t enjoy skiing with my fat body and weakened muscle strength, so dieting is important.

To become good at tennis, you need a certain skill, but how to live longer and rejuvenate requires skill. I would like to provide better information using paid papers, so please donate. You can donate with the coffee icon button.
