A variety of metabolic strategies have been used to increase mitochondrial energy production. The most m i to ch o n d r ia l med ic i n e and athleti c perf ormance ancient and still one of the most effective approaches to treating energy deficiency is the ketogenic diet. This diet shifts the calorie distribution from carbohydrates which are metabolized through glycolysis and results in the down-regulation of OXPHOS to fatty acids and/or ketones (acetoacetate and β-hydroxybutryate) which can only be metabolized by OXPHOS and thus up-regulates OXPHOS.

Only the descendents of these two lineages ultimately colonized the rest of the World. One branch of the out-of-Africa migration carried macrohaplogroup M through southeast Asia and then moved northward to radiate throughout Asia. The second branch carried macrohaplogroup N northward into Europe, giving rise to the European-specific lineages H, I, J, K, T, U, V, W, and X. Macrohaplogroup N also moved eastward into Asia. In Asia, both M and N radiated to generate a plethora of Asian-specific mtDNA lineages including A, B, and F from N and C, D, and G from M.
