It could also be the withdrawal of an antigen that the body responds to too strongly.
A ketogenic diet
A diet that is carbohydrate-restricted with a very low glycemic load but no ketosis
A baseline diet with supplemental ketone esters
A baseline diet
A pilot would just test ketogenic versus baseline diet.
Protein has profound metabolic effects. It increases lean muscle mass. It causes isocaloric remission of fatty liver. It promotes improved overall body composition.
However, a caveat: it probably depends on the source of protein.
It is as hypo-antigenic as a diet can be.
It doesn't matter.😆The point is that restricting antigens works. We know that.
I do think that placebo might have a profound influence on how a diet is experienced. If a diet is expected to be anti-inflammatory, I do wonder if it might in fact be anti-inflammatory.
The reason this is important to talk about is that, once we know the mechanisms, we can then change and optimize the diet and have people helped even more by it.
What if the carnivore diet does not work for everyone and could be harmful for some people? Do you think this is possible @MikhailaAleksis?
But I don't think there are many "final goods" that solve all problems with no downsides, and I think we should be skeptical of anyone who claims to have found such a good.
That is all.
