A crazy fad if ever I heard one. Just eat regular, portion controlled food and you'll have none of those things to worry about.
As for taking statins as a preventive measure DON'T unless you have been prescribed them by a doctor for a condition they are intended for. They have some serious side effects that you have to weigh up the pros/cons to...not something to take because of a FAD diet plan.

If you have a sweet tooth it may be impossible to resist the temptation of sugars and carbohydrates once you start eating on any one day. Only on DETE I can I cope. Food in the evening lets me sleep. Roughage keeps constipation at bay. Being a bit ketotic during the day has advantages and disadvantages:- Pro:- A cortisol high - good for morale. Cortisol high - osteoarthritic joints less painful A little fat disappears as ketones in breath and urine Con:- Breath smells like rotting fruit. Cortisol high - less resistant to infections Cortisol - muscle breakdown - need to do strenghtening exercises Ketones - acidotic - bone breakdown - so need extra calcium and vitamin D. Ketones - raise cholesterol - might take simvastatin to prevent this - but that also prevents cortisol high - and simvastatin increases risk of cataract.. I welcome your experience.
