If geeks love it, we’re on it
You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Did you know that if you starve yourself for a while, your body will produce acetone as a by-product which will be detectable in your breath simply by smelling?
Sorta kinda true, but not really.
What you're actually referring to is a process called ketosis wherein the body will convert fat stores into ketones which are burned for energy. The body will only enter into this state when its caloric requirement is otherwise met without using significant carbohydrates. Otherwise the body will enter into catabolysis which burns muscular proteins for energy. Your body normally uses glycogen for energy, which is an intramuscular sugar catalyzed by insulin in a process known as glycogenesis as a result of carbohydrate ingestion.
I know more than I ever wanted to know about tricking the human body into doing wacky shit it normally won't do. :/ sigh.
//edit: Actually, I think I have that book. D:
Did you know that HIIT cardio is 73% more effective than endurance cardio, and has been proven to produce metabolic elevation for more than 24 hours after completion?

Perhaps on an exterior level, but the causes of aging are really due to the inevitable shortening of your telomeres on a cellular level. You can eat perfectly your entire life, but your cells will still all die right on schedule.

That putting your body into Ketosis through using the Ketogenic diet is a method that is used to treat refractory (difficult to control) epilepsy, and for some people is better than anticonvulsants?
Did you know a treatment for epilepsy is the severing of the corpus collosum, which results in some extremely odd effects - in one case, a patient of the surgery awoke to find one of her hands trying to strangle her, and had to fight it off with the other hand.
