Keto Diet helps protect against influenza Yale University Study suggests. What about Coronavirus? CONFIRMED IT DOES!
"A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet like the Keto regimen has its fans, but influenza apparently isn’t one of them.

Mice fed a ketogenic diet were better able to combat the flu virus than mice fed food high in carbohydrates, according to a new Yale University study published Nov. 15 in the journal Science Immunology.

The ketogenic diet — which for people includes meat, fish, poultry, and non-starchy vegetables — activates a subset of T cells in the lungs not previously associated with the immune system’s response to influenza, enhancing mucus production from airway cells that can effectively trap the virus, the researchers report.

“This was a totally unexpected finding,” said co-senior author Akiko Iwasaki, the Waldemar Von Zedtwitz Professor of Immunobiology and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute."

"Bacteria and viruses thrive on sugar. It's their only source of energy. So consuming sweet snacks when you're sick can often make you feel worse."

I currently am on the Keto Diet for several reasons, and now given the study suggested here, I believe I may stick to until the coronavirus blows over.

So what say you? Any virology experts out there to mull over this one?


EDIT 2/19/2020

Yes! Dr. Berg actually talks about Ketones cleaning up bacteria and viruses in his corona virus video!

Glad I am already in ketosis! Maybe it’s time for you to switch over! (Also amazing weight loss and energy benefits!)




Apparently one research group is actually attempting to use specially modified sugar molecules designed to kill virus’s as well. Since virus’s need the sugar to survive, they are creating modified sugar molecules that actually kill the virus instead of supplying it with energy it needs! Very cool!

Re: Keto Diet helps protect against influenza Yale University Study suggests. What about Coronavirus? CONFIRMED IT DOES!
I've been eating a wholefoods plant-based diet, 1 to 3 fruits a day to keep a low sugar intake, mostly lentils, beans, potatoes, seeds and of course a fair amount of vegetables. I've never felt better, sharp, healthy, I can be around sick people and I don't notice a thing.
It's the best dietary choice I've made and I don't see how doubling down on the foods I am not consuming now would help me feel even better.

Well, this is not about how it makes you feel during normal consumption, this is about your body producing more T cells to stop the virus from entering your lungs. A very different use case here.

Wow! That is very interesting! I never thought about it but yes Keto can cause higher levels of acetone in the breath. The article suggests that cheaper testers may pick up on that, but more advanced ones, like police have, will not. Plus they can just take my blood and figure it out that way if the breath does go positive. Interesting indeed however.

Aspartame - History of Getting FDA Approval

Dr. Louis Elsas, director of medical genetics at Emory University, groans at the industry arguments that eating or drinking NutraSweet (aspartame) is just like eating a hamburger.

“Phenylalanine is a known toxin to the brain,’ Elsas said. “Aspartame is phenylalanine, and drinking aspartame is like drinking phenylalanine as an individual amino acid.”
