Superior Nutrient Support for Kickstarting and Maintaining Ketosis: NSP Fat Burn Formula

The rave on the internet, in healthcare and nutrition circles, is the phenomenal benefits of Nutritional Ketosis. Vince Gironda, Ray Raridan and Ron Kosloff have been teaching and educating their customers and clients about this for over forty years. Their product line included a fat burning recipe ( Fat Burn: The Lipotropic Formula) and was used to help bodybuilders cut superfluous body fat to promote cosmetic bodybuilding. This product was created 40 years ago and should give you an idea how long ago we new about ketosis and the benefits of eating fats to burn fat.

The keys to segue to nutritional ketosis and initiating ketogenesis are the nutrients that are the support structure for this metabolic pathway. Weather you are trying to initiate ketogenesis or want to maintain ketosis, these superior micronutrients are the clues to success!! Proven effective throughout the years, they will facilitate the chemistry of the body to stimulate ketogenesis and maintain it while causing a holt to glycolysis (with insulin control via diet changes).

Learn the jewels and gems of eating ketosis; start the diet that will revolutionize your workout performance; feel the best you have ever felt before and stop all the carb cravings.  Do not start this wonderful, life-changing diet without using the product that started it all!! We pulled it all together 40 years ago. Optimize Your Success and use Fat Burn: Lipotropic Formula…The foundation of Ketosis.

Benefits with a nutritional Ketosis:

  1. Kick-starts ketogenesis and maintains ketosis

The Physics of Nutrition

When one thinks of mathematics, medicine or pharmacology it congers ideas connected with these disciplines such as, differential equations, cell biology, statistical analysis, equivocation inputs, pharmacodynamics of sampling or occurrence variances.  These terms may seem intimidating and distant to most of us.  However, you need to be informed that the science of human nutrition can be just as intimidating and stoic.  The math and mental acrobats required to figure the weight withstanding of the footprint of a 110 ton office complex can be equally as complex as calculating the epidemiological nutritional patterns of certain groups in a population. The complexity of knowing how the body utilizes, metabolizes and assimilate macro and micronutrients is not an exact science and neither is medicine even at it’s most complex arenas, i.e. neurosurgery or transplant surgery.  Human nutrition governs the health of individuals and populations. If we abort the foundational laws and scientific principles given to us from Mother Nature that define optimal, preventative, recuperative and flawless health, we will be diseased, ill, feeble and leaning like the Tower Pisa, or collapse like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

Our health and wellbeing is not founded in the distant stars or planets.  The health and wellbeing of mankind can be established on the laws and calculations set forth by the earth we stand on.  It supplies us the air we breath, the trees and plants that provide us the food to eat, as well as the oceans, rivers and lakes that supply us with life-giving H2O.  Our sustenance is dependent on these innocuous things that we take for granted. If we sway too far from these essential prerequisites to life, we will pay the price.

Deficiencies are Mathematical Calculations

It is factual that if you are not consuming enough of Vitamin C (RDA is 150mg/d is the calculated amount for disease prevention)  you will experience scurvy and die if it is prolonged. Scurvy’s clinical manifestations are bleeding gums, hemorrhage and anemia, neuropathy  and lethargy, swelling and tenderness, as well as the absence of wound healing and infections. The etiology is due to the unavailability of Ascorbic Acid (AA) to form collagen, which is a subscript of connective tissue production.  Connective tissue is the groundwork for blood, areolar, adipose, fibrous, osseous and hyaline tissues and are global throughout the body.  Risk factors stem from the fact that humans can not manufacture ascorbic acid endogenously.  We have to get it from the food we eat.  This classifies AA as “essential”…meaning we have to get it from our diet, otherwise we will die!   Thus, the mathematical calculation of AA to prevent human disease and illness is 150mg per 24 hours period.

Disease is a Biometric Measure 

The profundity in defining “disease” and or “health” is relative to social constructs such as culture, class, income or race.  The consensus does not vacillate, though. Visit a hospital, a prison, a psychiatric ward (that is, if you can find one), a clinic, an American courthouse, our modern grocery stores, as well as the celebration of holidays, and you can feast your eyes on the illusions of health.  But make no mistake, there is widespread misery and suffering in these societal domains.  This suffering is a form of disease and it can be measured utilizing the best and most sophisticated scientific methodologies. The roots of this suffering is dietary and nutritional. Taking a conventional or mainstream approach to ameliorating the suffering versus a holistic or natural approach is where the problem lies!  We are using the wrong measures and asking the wrong questions.  This is why our disease state continues to worsen, not improve, ie., hypertension, diabetes, the opioid crisis. We have moved away from the principles and calculations set out by nature…which is real food.

Nutrition Science should be the first-line tx for Diseases

Most diseases are simple nutritional deficiencies.  This is a fact.  The research and documentation of medicine’s colloquy is unambiguous and unmistakable, both historic and contemporary.  Take hypertension as a disease, for instance. Conventional medicine describes it as evidenced by arteriosclerosis, hypercholesteremia and stress.  Though there are four basic types idiopathic, essential, secondary and primary, these are the three primary causes.  Arteriosclerosis, hypercholesteremia and stress can all be treated with a change in diet (nutritional) and supplementation ( I have implemented Linus Pauling’s Unified Theory on Hypertension).  The allopathic and traditional approach is to mitigate the symptoms with pharmaceutics which has been the contributory cause of disease prolongation…not the cure!  Let Food be your Cure…It is the Medicine given to us from Mother and Father!!!! Nutrition science is not a soft science. If its wisdom is ignored it will increase mortality and morbidity.  No science or discipline is as important as Nutrition Science because without our health, humans will die or live in a state of perpetual sickness and misery.  The next time you are ill or sick ask if yourself if you’ve perhaps abandoned the principles or laws of nutrition science…

Get the most out of protein by eating it with fats!

As I have said, and will continue saying, protein and fats are essential and the foundational structure of all living organisms. Carbohydrates are not important to health. Whole foods such as eggs, beef, pork, lamb, sheep, seafood, fish, nuts and seeds, provide portions of fat with protein. As a result, our bodies require fats and protein to be eaten together to optimize the effects of both for total and complete health.

Here are 10 evidenced based and scientifically backed benefits of the mighty protein according to Kris Gunnars BSc. of Healthline.com:

  1. Reduces appetite and hunger
  2. Increases muscle mass and strength
  3. Helps in the formation of bone
  4. Reduces late night cravings
  5. Increases metabolism and fat oxidation
  6. Decreases blood pressure
  7. Maintains long-term weight loss
  8. Does not harm healthy kidneys
  9. Repairs injuries after trauma
  10. Maintains strength in your senior years

Protein doesn’t posses these attributes simply by being protein… protein requires fats and oils to behave in the way that it does.

Dr. Lebedow demonstrated that if a starving dog was given fat or protein alone the dog would continue to starve and ultimately die. However, if given, simultaneously, a protein that was a sulfur-containing amino acid (such as, methionine and cysteine) and an EFA-oil, the starving dog would rebound with vibrant life. Sulphur-containing amino acids are reused for the formation of body proteins needed for growth, tissue maintenance and enzyme production. Essential fatty acid oils can not be manufactured by the body so have to be supplied by the diet.

Dr. Rosenfeld showed that a diet high in protein and low in carbs, or one that was high in protein and high in carbs, would both cause obesity. However, once he added an EFA to either diet it resulted in less obesity and improved food utilization and energy production.

The biochemical and cellular rationale as to why fats and oils are so valuable and effective to our health are as follows:

  1. Fats digest over 5-8 hours whereas carbs and protein are digested more quickly, say 2-4 hours
  2. Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) increase metabolic rate and help mobilize and burn saturated fatty acids
  3. Our body loses its cravings for food when its need for EFAs is satisfied. Eating sufficient amounts of EFAs will help you feel fuller faster.

The famous Atkins and Zone Diets are traditionally high protein and low fat diets. The challenge was that people were plateauing before their weight loss goals, after a month or so, and could not lose more weight. Research from Dr. Mary Enig and Sally Fallon from The Weston A. Price Foundation, shows that switching your metabolism from glycolysis to ketosis is one of the healthiest ways to lose weight and boost healthy clinical markers that prevent diabetes, cancer and thyroid problems. Also, protein breaks down as amino acids. Amino acids break down as glucose to be used by the cell’s mitochondria for ATP production as an energy substrate. If you are consuming too much protein this begets serum hyperglycemia, yielding excess glucose and subsequently fat storage or refractory weight gain. Consuming fats and oils (except trans-fats and hydrogenated oils) with quality protein will trigger lipolysis of dietary and stored body fat – this is nutritional ketosis.

This is why I advise my customers that purchase NSP 92% Milk & Egg Protein to mix it with half & half or whole milk and drink it slowly- over a half hour.

Lastly, assays and measures of protein utilization and quality, such as Protein Efficiency Ratio P.E.R., measure of Biological Value B.V. and Net Protein Utilization N.P.U. have been used to measure the nutritive value of protein’s digestibility and amino acid spread. They rarely measure the interdependence of protein and lipid chemistry. I have read hundreds of articles and books of empirical data, independently funded research and double-blind studies that were performed by highly reputable, esteemed and respected scientists, organizations and academics that I base this article on.
