The Amazing Keto For Longevity Plus Youthful Appearance



If you have been struggling to find a longevity diet that you can enjoy while increasing your longevity and youthful apprearance at the same time then you will find the answer with this Keto for Longevity post.

This is because the amazing Keto Diet is the diet for which you have been looking to increase your longevity.



Ketosis is defined by Wikipedia as a metabolic state in which most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides energy

Generally, ketosis occurs when the body is metabolizing fat at a high rate and, converting fatty acids into ketones, where you are burning ketones for fuel rather than glucose.

  • If it were not for the fact that diseases such as obesity, heart problems, artery disease, diabetes, and cancer, to mention just a few, were not on the increase now, then there would be no reason to consider the Ketogenic Diet/Lifestyle.

The Ketogenic Diet is merely reverting to our ancestors’ diet of good healthy fats and protein while greatly reducing refined sugars and other carbohydrates!

* Studies have shown that carbohydrate restriction by itself can increase your lifespan by 20%! 

Further, it is especially important to note that too much protein causes an unwanted insulin/glucose response.

So you should not have more than about 6 ounces of meat per meal while on the Ketogenic diet.

Per the world-famous Cleveland Clinic on Keto “When you do this, interesting things happen:

  • Your metabolism speeds up.
  • Your hunger goes away.
  • Your muscle mass increases.
  • Your blood pressure and heart disease risk profile improve.”

    * For many hundreds of thousands of years our Cavemen and Cavewomen ancestors, whose DNA we inherited, hunted and lived on prey consisting of saturated fat and protein.

It is important to note that our Homo Sapien Ancestors, who existed as hunters for 200,000 years BC, did not even begin cultivating crops until about 11,000 BC.

This time of 11,000 BC was shortly after the Ice Age, which started about 2.6 Million years ago, ended in about 11,700 BC.

Thus, by 11,700 BC, our DNA was completely established well before the start of any crop cultivation which is the basis of the Paleo Diet.

These Cavemen and Cavewomen were very strong, lean and fast so as to catch their prey.

Just try to picture a fat/obese Caveman on the hunt with a spear trying to catch an antelope or deer.

Additionally, these Cavemen were only usually fortunate to catch just enough food for one meal a day which meant they fasted intermittently for about 20 hours a day…elsewhere referred to and discussed in this blog as “Intermittent Fasting”.

These Cavemen and Cavewomen did not get up in the morning and have Breakfast of Champions with sugar and milk and Pop-Tarts.



Keto provides many amazing benefits for your longevity.

The main Keto For Longevity benefits for you are:

These main Keto for longevity benefits are discussed in detail in the following.



Keto’s 7 longevity benefits are quite dramatic and longevity enhancing.

The 7 areas in which Keto will enhance your longevity are:


Heart disease accounted for 23.4 percent of the total deaths reported at 614,348 deaths.

The Keto Diet is an extremely low inflammation diet.

  • Inflammation from your diet, and NOT Cholesterol, causes Plaque.

Inflammation is caused by The American Western Diet which is full of carbohydrates and Trans Fats.

Dr. Lundell Regarding The Cause Of Arterial Plaque

Dr. Lundell is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital, Mesa, AZ.

After performing countless bypass heart surgeries he made the discovery that the cause of arterial Plaque was inflammation.

Because of his findings and the position Dr. Lundell took regarding the cause of Plaque, he outraged the established medical/pharmaceutical establishment and was fired.

Carbohydrate reduction will greatly decrease the inflammation that damages your heart and arteries.

For an interesting must watch YouTube report on The Truth About Heart Disease & Cholesterol by Dr. Dwight Lundell past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at the Banner Heart Hospital, Mesa, AZ, please click on and watch from the beginning.

  • Dr. Lundell points out his findings regarding his high inflammation observations during heart operations which he feels is caused by a high Carbohydrate diet and bad fats such as vegetable oils and not Cholesterol.


Avoiding the Metabolic syndrome as described by Wikipedia will greatly increase your longevity.

      The Dreaded Metabolic Syndrome

Per Wikipedia: “Metabolic syndrome, sometimes known by other names, is a clustering of at least three of the five following medical conditions: central obesityhigh blood pressurehigh blood sugarhigh serum triglycerides, and low serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL).”

It is very important for you to know what are the good parameters for Belly Fat and what are not.

  • Just getting on a scale is not a good indication of your state of health, because two people of the same height can have a different amount of muscle.

A sedentary person is going to weigh much less than an intense bodybuilder with a huge amount of muscle.

But both can have the same amount of Belly Fat.

The complicated BMI (Body Mass Indicator), also for the above reasons, is quite inaccurate and misleading.

For instance, it has been noted that most any NFL Football Team players fail the BMI test as they are shown by the BMI as Obese, though they are excellent physical specimens.

  • The key to determining excessive Belly Fat is simply using a Measuring Tape for measurement of your waist size taken at one’s navel and then dividing by one’s height.

How To Use A High Tech Tape Measure For Belly Fat Risk Assessment

This seems to be true for both men and women.

The result of the resultant calculation should not be more than 50% for optimum health and low disease risk.

For instance as an example calculation, if you are six feet tall and have a waist size measurement of let’s say 40”, then the resultant calculation would be 40”/72”=55.5%.

  • Thus, a score of 50% is considered to be the highest health number that you should have for optimum health.

A hypothetical score of 55.5% means you have excessive Belly/Visceral Fat.

Whereas, a calculation of 34” waist divided by 72” height=47.2%, which would be a very healthy indication.

At a score of 50% or less you are considered to be at a very low risk of heart disease or stroke.

You are deemed to enter the Metabolic  Syndrome danger zone when your waist circumference is above 4o%.

Metabolic Syndrome, also known as Syndrome X , refers to a grouping of metabolic conditions that can lead to a number of life-threatening conditions.

Metabolic Syndrome affects more than one out of every three adults in the U.S.

  Some of the  effects of Metabolic Syndrome that decrease your longevity are:

  • Insulin Resistance,
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure),
  • Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar),
  • Abnormal cholesterol,
  • Increased risk for clotting, and
  • Increased circulating Inflammatory proteins.


The Keto Diet was first recognized for its effect on epilepsy and subsquently it has been shown to have longevity enhancing benefit for your brain’s health.

Some important areas for the effect of Keto on your brain’s health are:


Parkinson’s disease occurs when nerves in a central area of the Brain degenerate slowly, causing problems with movement and coordination.

A tremor of the hands is a common early sign.

The Ketogenic Diet helps nonmotor symptoms in Parkinson’s.

The diet has also been used to treat related medication-resistant epilepsy for many years and pre-clinical work supports its potential use in Parkinson’s.

As for mechanisms of benefit in Parkinson’s Disease, researchers indicate that ketone bodies work as antioxidants and bypass a defect in the mitochondria (the cells’ powerhouses) to fuel the body’s energy production.


Huntington’s disease is an unfortunate and somewhat rare genetic Brain disorder that currently affects about 30,000 Americans.

It is an inherited genetic nerve disorder that affects the Brain.

Dementia and difficulty controlling movements are its symptoms.

Huntington’s Disease is a very disabling disease that disturbs your ability to think, reason, connect socially, remember information and even move.

Although this disease eventually results in death, the use of the Ketogenic Diet has been shown as therapeutic in that it reduces inflammation as well as offsetting the weight loss that results from this degenerative disease.


Epilepsy is a tendency to have seizures.

It is possible for head injuries and strokes to be the cause of Epilepsy, but usually, no cause is identified.

The Ketogenic diet helps to control seizures in some people with epilepsy.

Since the 1920s, the Ketogenic diet has been proven to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures in children with epilepsy.

It is prescribed by a physician and carefully monitored by a dietitian.

It is usually used in children with seizures that do not respond to medications.


Alzheimer’s comprises the largest form of Dementia which is approximately 80% and if someone has Dementia and or Alzheimer’s they should consider the Ketogenic Diet.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the fifth cause of death in the US.

For unclear reasons, nerves in certain Brain areas degenerate, causing progressive dementia.

Dementia is a broader category of Brain disease that causes a usually gradual decrease in your ability to think and remember.

Dementia is diagnosed when it becomes significant enough to affect your daily life and functioning.

And it includes what is known as Alzheimer’s disease.

It is a decline in cognitive function resulting from death or malfunction of nerve cells in the Brain.

Conditions in which nerves in the Brain degenerate, as well as alcohol abuse and strokes, can cause Dementia.

In Alzheimer’s disease, there is strong documentation of Insulin Resistance in the Brain that hampers the uptake of glucose for fuel.

  • Insulin Resistance of the Brain as a factor associated with Alzheimer’s is so well documented that some researchers have called Alzheimer’s “Type-3 Diabetes.”

The Brain Insulin Resistance, which prevents the Brain’s use of glucose no matter how high blood sugar rises, helps explain the higher rates of Alzheimer’s among those with diabetes.

Dr. Ede Regarding Diet’s Importance For Your Brain Health

Dr. Georgia Ede, a leading nutritional psychiatrist, in her outstanding YouTubediscussion of Our Descent Into Madness: Modern Diets and the Global Mental Health Crisisdiscusses among other things the importance of reducing Insulin Resistance to prevent Alzheimer’s.

Dr. Ede notes in her 2017 video the importance of reducing Insulin Resistance to prevent Alzheimer’s.

She delves into the issue, too, in a related column for Psychology Today, “Preventing Alzheimer’s may be easier than you think.”

She strongly recommends the consumption of meats, and not necessarily red meats, for your health and especially Brain health.

  • And further, Dr. Ede goes on to point out the strong advantages of the Ketogenic Diet even over the Paleo type veggie only diet.

The Longevity Shortening American Western Diet

She focuses on the problem of the so-called American Western Diet which has become the Global diet that has the harmful presence of processed and refined carbs, fats and NOT the often blamed saturated fats and cholesterol.

The Western Diet is strongly linked to inflammation and oxidation.

  • Cholesterol is key for Brain health, as 20% of the Cholesterol in your body is in your Brain although the Brain is only 2% of the body’s weight.

It is important to note that 80% of Alzheimer’s patients have Insulin Resistance with Type-2 Diabetes.

In Alzheimer’s disease, for unclear reasons, nerves in certain Brain areas degenerate, causing progressive dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.

Since your Brain derives energy from ketones just as well and even better than it does from glucose, and since insulin resistance does not block ketones from getting to your Brain, the Ketogenic Diet is quite beneficial for you.


Stroke accounted for 5.1 percent of the total deaths reported at 133,033 deaths.

One of the outstanding benefits of the Keto Diet is its ability to improve cognitive ability.

Regarding the Ketogenic Diet, its improvement in cognitive function is shown in its improvement in cognitive factors including positive effects on seizures and other mental conditions.

For you to further enhance your cognitive ability, the Ketogenic Diet is considered a very effective Noorotrophic.

And further, research suggests it can keep the Brain healthy and young with improved cognitive ability.


Cancer accounted for 22.5 percent of the total deaths reported at 591,699 deaths.

Further, Cancer rates have increased from 1 in 20 in 1900,  when bad fats and high carb diets were prevalent to 1 in 2 by mid-2018.

Per the Journal Of The AMA 1996, 1 in 4 taking Statins will get cancer.

Further, re cancer, it must be noted that normal cells can get their energy from either glucose or fat, but cancer cells have a fatal flaw and can only survive on glucose.

Dr. Warburg, Nobel Prize Winner

There have been many studies that Ketosis has reversed and stopped cancer on patients given not much time to live.

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg received the 1931 Nobel Prize for “The Real Cause of Cancer” known as “The Warburg Effect” noting in short that cancer cells need glucose to survive.

However, it seems the American Cancer Society wants to keep this discovery a big secret.

Cancer is big business.

In a survey of Oncologists, over 50% said they would not use chemo or radiation, both of which are carcinogenic, on themselves or their family.

For an interesting must watch YouTube report regarding The Ketogenic Diet And Cancer”please click on and watch this amazing report by Dr. Mike from the beginning (1st 29 minutes).

      Dr. Berry Re: Cancer Loves Sugar

Further, re cancer, it must be noted that normal cells can get their energy from either glucose or fat, but cancer cells have a fatal flaw and can only survive on glucose.

Dr. Berry in a very important YouTube video further makes quite an interesting argument that Cancer Loves Sugar.

There have been many studies that Ketosis has reversed and stopped cancer on patients given not much time to live.


Lower Respiratory Disease accounted for 5.6 percent of the total deaths reported at 147,101 deaths.

Chronic Inflammation of the respiratory system when it becomes chronic is suspected to be a key influence in causing lower respiratory disease.

The inflammatory response (inflammation) occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause.

The damaged cells release chemicals including histamine, bradykinin, and prostaglandins. These chemicals cause blood vessels to leak fluid into the tissues, causing swelling.

The inflammation response in your system eventually compromises its ability to transport oxygen into one’s bloodstream.

  • The Ketogenic Diet has been reported to play a key roll in huge improvements of COPD and the inflammation of the respiratory tract and overall well being.

The main ketone body produced when on a Ketogenic Diet – beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) has been shown in studies to suppress the NLRP3 inflammasome, a major driver in respiratory disease.

Chronic inflammation is now being recognized as the major driver in so many diseases and the race is on to find a way to treat it.

Sadly, due to predominately funding issues, respiratory research is lagging behind other diseases.

The key inflammasome NLRP3, a driver to many diseases including respiratory disease is now the target of researchers.

Chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD) is a collection of lung diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related issues.

  These issues include:

  • Primary chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Asthma.

In the US, tobacco smoke is a key factor in the development and progression of COPD.

Russell Wilson Regarding Keto And His Recovery

Russell Windwood, an Iron Man competitor, has revealed his own amazing Keto results.

There is an interesting and excellent COPD siteThe Ketogenic Cure, that one with COPD should visit by Russell Windwood.

Russell has been living with COPD, and was diagnosed with Stage 4 COPD.

  • He subsequently experienced very beneficial results on the Ketogenic Diet and greatly improved from Stage 4.

Since then Russell has been able to compete in Iron Man marathons.


The Ketogenic Diet shines when it comes to its role in controlling and treating Diabetes.

Keto Is Key For Combating Diabetes

  The following cascade from Insulin Resistance that occurs in Diabetes is:   

-The Insulin Resistance of your cells causes the Pancreas to produce more insulin to get rid of the high Blood Glucose which the Insulin is unable to remove,

-Your Blood Glucose levels skyrocket,

-When the Blood Glucose skyrocket happens, the Pancreas starts producing even more Insulin to bring the very high Blood Glucose levels down. This Insulin increase leads to Hyperinsulinemia,

-The over normal Insulin production puts a huge strain on the Pancreas and soon your Pancreas fails, and then

-When the Pancreas fails to be able to make Insulin in the blood, the Blood Glucose skyrocketing leads to a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes, with all its dangerous effects on your body.

Note that by embracing the Ketogenic Diet some of the beneficial effects you will encounter are:

  • Greatly lowers your blood glucose levels,
  • Greatly takes the burden off of the Pancreas to make glucose,
  • Lowers the amount of Insulin in the body,
  • Lowers the greatly harmful effect of high glucose provided by Insulin Resistance.

The impact of influenza on longevity in large.

According to the CDC “influenza has resulted in between 9.3 million – 49.0 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 960,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 79,000 deaths annually since 2010.”

Influenza’s Impact On Longevity

The Ketogenic Diet has been reported to play a key role within huge improvements in disease protection and recovery including that of the respiratory tract and overall well being.

Further, the Ketogenic Diet has been shown to reduce inflammation as well as Chronic Inflammation of your pulmonary respiratory system.

When Inflammation becomes chronic it is suspected to be a key influence in lowering your resistance to infection.

And, the inflammation response in your system eventually compromises your immune system declines.

The inflammatory response (inflammation) occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause.

The damaged cells release chemicals including histamine, bradykinin, and prostaglandins.

These chemicals cause blood vessels to leak fluid into the tissues, causing swelling leading to a decrease in your resistance to pathogens.



If you are relying on Keto for your longevity, the only exact way to be sure you are in Ketosis is to use Ketone Testing.

Keto Testing is very important, as explained, to be successful with increasing your longevity..

  Following are the standard three ways to test for your state of Ketosis:


Smackfat Ketone Strips for Ketogenic Diet and Diabetics – Precise Ketone Measurement and Supports Ketone Adaptation, 100 Strips are for monitoring and tracking progress on a day to day basis.

Smackfat Ketone Test Strips

These Ketone strips which measure the Ketones in your urine will give Ketone test results, initially.

For Urine testing, it is very good and inexpensive for beginners on the Keto Diet.

However, your chemistry will soon change and render urine testing useless.

Thus, you should also consider a permanent Keto blood testing monitor as described below.


Regarding breath testing for a state of Ketosis, there are a couple of products on the market but as of March 12, 2019, there have been too many user complaints to recommend this type of testing.
