It’s been exactly 24 days that I have been doing myself a ketogenic diet. And since this high-fat, adequate protein and very low carb diet is new to my being, I have to do a massive research and study so as to keep myself from being under ketosis and prevent being kicked out from it.
Through the days of my research, I discovered that there are words that exists which I never use or even encountered prior to my being on keto. It seems that there is a totally different set of language that exists because of this diet. It was like I was transported to a different planet and was exposed to a totally different language.
Where on earth would you encounter the words keto flu, ketosis and medium-chain triglycerides? How on ordinary earth would you bump into words like ketones, hypoglycemia and gluconeogenesis? A cheese is a cheese is a cheese. But now I have to care about its containing conjugated linoleic acid.
And since I got the sweetest tooth, I have to come across with aspartame, erythritol, tagatose and monk fruit. Even my computer’s spelling-check feature could not ascertain if some of these words really exists!
The keto language even have homonyms for sugar! To the tune of glucose, sucrose and fructose. Prior to keto diet the only 3-same sounding words I knew that are related to each other were the nephews of Donald Duck! Huey, Dewey and Louie!
Hahaha! The only bulletproof I know is a vest. Now I have to be familiar with a bulletproof coffee! Macros is short for macronutrients. May it be shortened nor lengthened, I both never knew it prior to ketosis. If my two favorite Disney villains were Flotsam and Jetsam of The Little Mermaid, now my two favorites – not villains but fats – are MUFA and PUFA! Go google it!
O sha na.. at baka magka-ketoacidosis pa ako sa inyo!
