SlowBurn Exercise and a Low Carb Diet

March 5, 2017

The sections represent the amount of calories from each food source, not the actual size of the food. There will be a greater amount of plant matter on your plate than animal matter.

Do you want good health, lowered inflammation and protection from autoimmune disorders? Don’t juice or carb up – do just the opposite! Back in 2015, researchers at Yale School of Medicine revealed a compound that appears to inhibit inflammation in our bodies. The substance is known as β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). 

In their study, published in the Feb. 16 online issue of Nature Medicine, the researchers described how the compound β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) directly inhibits NLRP3, which is part of a complex set of proteins called the inflammasome. The inflammasome drives the inflammatory response in several disorders including autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, and autoinflammatory disorders.
“BHB is a metabolite produced by the body in response to fasting, high-intensity exercise, caloric restriction, or consumption of the low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet.”
So instead of taking anti-inflammatory meds like Advil, instead consider SlowBurn high intensity strength training and a low carb diet with a touch of intermittent fasting tossed in is a match made in heaven for your health and well-being! It’s the combo we use at all our SlowBurn personal training studios. You should try it too!

    Nice to see a blog post up again Fred. I’m still Slow Burning and very low carbing – nearly ten years now. I don’t do intermittent fasting as I’m skinny.

    I’m now getting some osteoarthritis in my feet and hands – I wish that what I was doing had prevented that, of course it may be worse if I wasn’t doing very low carbing and slow burning. I think the arthrstis is in my feet becasue I do a lot of walking. I love walking. I like to walk several miles a day, but the past few months I’ve had to practically stop all walking, or just short walks, as the pain gets so bad in toes and ankles. I don’t eat grains of any sort and what carbs I eat are in leafy green veggies so I reckon the arthristis is simply due to wear and tear – I’m just approaching 64 🙁

    I agree with Anne, it’s great to see a post from you again! You always have so much info to share. This post is especially pertinent to me because I have diabetes and my daughter has Lupus. I have been low-carbing for 10 years and still haven’t had to take meds. My A1c seems to stay around 5.5 to 5.8. I also do a “baby” Slow Burn once a week. Basically, I just do as much as I think I can without overdoing it at my age (65). I am going to share this post with my daughter. Thanks. Keep posting!
