View Full Version : Questions Regarding Ketosis

01-26-2001, 08:02 AM
If this is a stupid question, I am apologizing in advance! I am wondering if ketosis is beneficial to someone who is not going to compete (not yet anyways!), but really wants to shed some extra fat. I did a search on this topic here, and couldn't find anything.

I don't have a ton of fat to lose - I am just trying to drop my bodyfat percent about 4-5% less than what it is right now. I do not know much about ketosis, so I will definitely have to research it before I try this. Does anyone know of any good websites or books with great information on this subject?

I know a little. :)

I've done a couple of periods of TKDs. One of them worked better than any diet I've ever used.

The second time I tried it, I was so miserable I stopped after about 2 weeks.

go here:


Then get 'The Ketogenic Diet' by Lyle McDonald.

The basics are pretty simple.

Some people react very well to keto dieting, some do not.

Thank you, Paul. I have briefly looked over the info. from that website and I am going to print it and take it home for reading this weekend.
