A new twist on keto: The fat-burning power of ketogenic eating meets the clean green benefits of a plant-centric plate

The keto craze is just getting warmed up. The ketogenic diet kick-starts your body's metabolism so it burns fat, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel. But most ketogenic plans are meat- and dairy-heavy, creating a host of other problems, especially for those who prefer plants at the center of the plate. Dr. Will Cole comes to the rescue with Ketotarian, which has all the fat-burning benefits without the antibiotics and hormones that are packed into most keto diets.

First developed for individuals suffering from seizures, keto diets have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic health problems including Alzheimer's and some cancers. Adding a plant-based twist, Ketotarian includes more than 75 recipes that are vegetarian, vegan, or pescatarian, offering a range of delicious and healthy choices for achieving weight loss, renewed health, robust energy, and better brain function.

Packed with expert tips, tricks, and advice for going--and staying--Ketotarian, including managing macronutrients, balancing electrolytes, and finding your carb sweet spot, this best-of-both-worlds program is a game-changer for anyone who wants to tame inflammation and achieve peak physical and mental performance. Let the Ketotarian revolution begin!

Imagine spending a weekend with hundreds of other low-carbers in a coastal New England town turned keto! That's exactly what happened July 20-22, 2018 in New London, CT when Carl Franklin and Richard Morris from the 2 Keto Dudes podcast hosted KetoFest. Within four blocks, there were world-class speakers, local restaurants serving real keto dishes, attend a pig roast where you don't have to worry about sugar in the sauce, keto cooking classes, talks on various keto-related topics, fat-adapted fitness classes, and lots of networking with other ketogenic warriors. Ketofest is not a conference - it's a festival! Conferences are for professionals; festivals are for people! Ketofest is for real people who want to learn the science behind, and practical applications of, the ketogenic lifestyle as a food-based remedy for numerous "diseases of civilization."

A few months ago Jimmy attended the 2018  Nutritional Therapy Association Conference and had the pleasure of hosting a panel to talk about the ketogenic lifestyle. Jimmy was joined by Leah Williamson and Shawn Mynar to talk about why keto should be used as a protocol, not a diet, why keto is not just about changing macros, why the production of ketones is the most important thing, reducing glucose and the subsequent insulin response, the role of protein, why paleo and keto are closer than you might think, nutrient density, bio-individuality, the stress that sometimes comes with trying to get macros exact, net carbs vs total carbs, is keto right for everybody, and much more.

Your Questions:

1. Do the additives found in some brands of heavy cream inhibit ketosis, and are they potentially harmful?  

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I made the ketogenic lifestyle change over a year ago and my A1c has dropped down from 6.2 to 5.4. I listen to Keto Talk every week and you guys have trained me to look closely at ingredient labels. I eat a lot more heavy cream and my question for you today has to do with the mono and diglycerides as well as the carrageenan that are added to heavy whipping cream. Some people claim these are harmless and others say they are horrible. What I want to know is, do they mess with ketosis? Are they dangerous to your health in any way? I appreciate your feedback on this one.

3. Are there certain non-grass-fed/organic meats that should absolutely be avoided if you are pursuing healthy ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've just read Dr. Cate Shanahan's book Deep Nutrition and now I'm baffled as what to eat on a ketogenic diet (from a safe and healthy perspective). I simply can't afford grass-fed beef. I can only get it at a health food store and it's way too expensive for me. I normally shop at Costco and Sobey’s grocery store. I buy pork only from humanely-raised brands. That’s really the only feasible healthy meat choice for me to consume. I buy organic whenever I can. I like beef liver, beef heart, and chicken liver, but they don't ever come from grass fed or even organic sources. What would you advise to NOT eat at all amongst these non-grass-fed/organic choices for meat? What should I be eating on my keto plan that is very healthy that maybe I’m not thinking about? How do I stay on budget in my finances while pursuing optimal health through nutritional ketosis? I've heard some say you need to do the best you can, but I really want to know which foods to avoid if you can't get the good quality.

Thank you guys, I love what you do,

Monika

4. Could the detoxification that takes place from eating keto cause the lymph nodes to swell temporarily until things calm down in the body?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

My question for you guys is about the lymph nodes. Is it possible, since the lymphatic system is a filtering process, that swollen lymph nodes after going keto could be the result of the change in your diet? When you switch over to keto, your body does a natural detox, right? So is it feasible that swollen lymph nodes could be the result of this detoxification and given some time and a few adjustments, such as more water and possibly a lymphatic massage, they could go down on there own without any medical intervention? I understand that it probably depends on how swollen they are along with other factors. I was just curious if my hypothesis could be true?

Thanks for all you do and all the great information you both bring to the world that we may not otherwise get.

Sincerely,

Amanda

4. Why did I experience reactive hypoglycemia after eating a ketogenic meal?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a big fan of you guys and four days into eating keto. I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of this and wanted to run something by you. I ate the following food a couple of days ago: one medium avocado, two eggs over easy, two Italian sausages, 3 tablespoons of sour cream, and 3 tablespoons of Kerrygold grass-fed butter. After consuming this food, I almost immediately felt flush, dizzy, and off. I started researching Dr. Google and it looks like I had reactive hypoglycemia. Is this normal on a ketogenic diet or what did I do wrong? Interestingly, I had a fatty coffee and pastrami with cream cheese today and didn’t have any of those same symptoms from he other day. Could it be the extra fat in my meal today compared to the other day? Thanks for the advice on this one.

Matthew

5. Are there concerns that medicinal herbs and adaptogens can play a negative role in a patient’s health much in the same way as a pharmaceutical drug?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to you guys all the time and Will I hear you talk about various herbs and adaptogens that you’ve found useful in your clinical practice for your patients basically every week. You also talk about the side effects that come from prescription medications. As a fellow medical practitioner, I see both herbs and pharmaceutical drugs as basically extra chemicals substances that you are adding to a patient’s body in the hopes of eliciting a helpful or healing response. All these extra chemicals and compounds, whether food/plant based OR pharmaceutical based, potentially can interact with each other in very bad ways.

In the hospital where I work, I’ve seen examples of herbs causing liver and bleeding problems and interacting with other medications. The word “natural” does not particularly reassure me; cocaine, toxic mushrooms, poison ivy, and castor beans are all natural and they are also all noxious. A lot of the pharmaceuticals we use (penicillin, digitalis, the list goes on and on) are basically purified natural products. Pharmaceuticals, at least in theory, have to go through a rigorous testing process including ruling out the very powerful placebo effect.

My problem is that herbs and such don’t have to go through that same scrutiny before being made available to the general public. We really have no idea what the dosage of the active ingredient(s) might be from bottle to bottle, brand to brand, of all these herbs, do we? I’ve been low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic for the past five years, was a featured success story in Keto Clarity, have been on Jimmy’s podcast, and teach at an Osteopathic medical school now. I certainly have no objection to herbs, adaptogens, and other natural health supplementation and would never support banning them. But just how well tested are they?

Thanks again for a great show! You made this medical doctor think and that’s a good thing.

Dr. Jim Small

– Are You Carbohydrate Intolerant? Here’s How To Know + What To Do About It

– Is it true that your body cannot burn stored body fat if you are taking exogenous ketones since the body has to deal with these first before fat-burning can happen?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Craig and Maria Emmerich say in their book KETO that taking exogenous ketones should be avoided because the body can’t store them. On the oxidative priority list alcohol is number one followed by exogenous ketones, carbs, protein, and then fat. Since alcohol and exogenous ketones can’t be stored in the body, it immediately begins working to get rid of it as a matter of priority. They say that fat comes in last on the list because it is the body’s preferred fuel source. According to them, when these exogenous ketones are ingested, lipolysis (fat burning) stops. At least that’s how I understood the explanation. This is so frustrating for me to try to understand because exogenous ketones are pushed so strongly in the ketogenic community. I want my body burning stored fat, not exogenous ketones. I’m so very confused on this issue.

Thanks for your help,

Parrish

1. Can a ketogenic diet help heal the “killer cells” that make it more difficult to get pregnant?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

My question is about fertility. I have heard that a keto diet is very beneficial for woman who are trying to get pregnant. I have a friend who has been trying for a very long time and it seems that she has what some have described as “killer cells.” What does that mean and can a ketogenic diet help? Thanks again for your great podcasts.

2. Why do I feel funny in my head and nose side effects when my ketone levels go higher after consuming a Bulletproof coffee?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

When my ketones are elevated, I start to get unwanted side effects and feel kinda funky in the head to the point that I have to lie down and I even get a weird sensation in my nose. This morning after putting Brain Octane Fuel from Bulletproof in m coffee with cream, about 30 minutes later my blood glucose was 84 and blood ketones at 3.3. That’s when I get that issue. What is that? I take 45mg NP Thyroid every morning a couple of hours before my coffee or eating, but no other prescriptions.

Thanks again for all you do!

3. Is it possible to be so well keto-adapted that your body can go in and out and back into ketosis more quickly even after a high-carb meal?

Hey Jimmy & Adam,

Last night, my fiancé and I went out to eat at an Italian restaurant for a friend’s birthday dinner and I decided to cheat. I had a salad, squid ink pasta w/lobster, and for dessert…a big slice of cake. Needless to say, this was a very high-carb, low-moderate protein, and low-fat dinner. I’ve been doing keto on and off for almost 2 years now, and this morning my fasting blood sugar showed 83 and blood ketone was 2.3. I’ve never experienced anything like this before.

Is it possible that I’m just so well keto-adapted now that my body can go in and out and back into ketosis much more quickly? I must also mention that because this high-carb meal was premeditated, I prepped for it by drinking a green drink w/apple cider vinegar and some kimchi before we left for the restaurant. Do you think this helped? I’m also in fairly good shape, and workout quite often so that might have also played a factor. I’ve also heard that eating carbs separately from protein and fats helps with digestion and vice versa.

Do you guys think that the low protein and low-fat helped with my body’s process of allocating the sugar properly so I was able to get right back into ketosis again?

Thanks for all you do,

Chris

– Do I need to moderate my protein or moderate my fat intake in order to see success at losing weight on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy & Dr. Nally,

Thank you for doing Keto Talk. I binge listened the last two months and now I’m all caught up. Thanks for the great show because I’ve learned so much. Atkins was my first foray into this community a couple of decades ago and the Grain Brain, Paleo, Dr. Jason Fung and many other followed. Learning more about keto has become my favorite pastime and I only just discovered all these amazing podcasts. There’s one question I haven’t heard anyone provide a good answer for yet and I’m hoping you guys are up for the challenge of answering it. It has to do with the concept of gluconeogenesis. I’ve heard you and Dr. Nally state that it can play a significant role in kicking you out of ketosis and raising blood sugar levels which is why you need to moderate protein intake. You also discuss eating a high-fat diet to satiety and that this within the context of a low-carb nutritional intake does not lead to weight gain. You’ve noted on several occasions that if fat is consumed in excess of what is needed, then the body excretes the extra fat out of the breath, urine, and feces.

However, there seems to be two very opposing views amongst the greater keto world and I’d like to know which side is right and why you think the other side is wrong. One the one side, you’ve got people who say that gluconeogenesis is not something to worry about and that eating a higher protein intake will not affect ketosis (or fat adaptation) and that dietary fat should be moderated for those needing to lose weight so your body can tap into those fat stores instead of using dietary fat for energy. On the other side, you have people like you guys who say the body is burning both stored body fat and the dietary fat that you eat simultaneously so you do not gain weight when you eat more fat. This side also thinks you should moderate down on the protein to prevent the insulin and blood sugar effects that can come from consuming this macronutrient in excess of what the body needs.

So who’s right? Is there some middle ground between these two positions? My main question is whether moderating protein or moderating fat is the best way to shed pounds which is my current goal. It seems that many people listening to this and other leto-focused podcasts are interested in weight loss, so we need to be crystal clear about what will work to make that happen. I understand everybody needs to find the version of keto that works for them but this is difficult for the common person to figure out. Can you help me and others determine how we can figure all this out so we can be successful on keto?

Thanks for all you do!

Manny

-- Will a ketogenic diet help speed up the recovery process for my upcoming jaw surgery?

Jimmy and Will,

I am a registered dietitian who is an advocate for the keto diet since starting it for myself nine months ago. I am working diligently on influencing others in my profession about the health benefits of nutritional ketosis. Keto Talk has helped me stay on top of what is happening in the world of keto so I can be armed with the knowledge to pass along to my RD colleagues.

Recently I had braces put into my mouth in preparation for jaw surgery coming in the Fall. This will include my mouth being banded together for a few weeks after surgery which would thus limit the types of foods I could eat or drink. Do you have any input about what my recovery will be like being in a state of ketosis vs. if I wasn’t ketogenic? I would assume inflammation would be lower on keto, but is there any research showing how much quicker healing will take place? My wife does not eat keto and has hinted several times that she wants me to just eat whatever post-surgery so I keep my energy up and have an enjoyable experience. I’m not wanting to lose any more weight in this, but the faster recovery would be a bonus.

Thanks for the help,

Casey

1. Is it possible to heal my Type 2 diabetes through a ketogenic diet and lifestyle change alone without going back on medications again?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am a 38-year old male with Type 2 diabetes. I am 6'3" and currently weigh 307 pounds. I started keto at the beginning of the year and have lost 25 pounds so far. I stopped taking all my diabetes medications on am only on blood pressure medication at the moment. My blood glucose numbers run between 155-200 no matter what time of day I check it. I have been implementing intermittent fasting with keto for the past month. So my question for you guys is this: Did I stop taking my medications for controlling Type 2 diabetes too soon? I was taking 1000mg metformin twice a day, 20mg glipizide twice a day, 10 units of lantis per day. I feel so amazing on keto and never want to go back to eating any other way. Do I need to go back on the medications for a short period of time until I heal a little more or will my body heal with a ketogenic diet and lifestyle changes over time?

Most shocking to me when when my doctor told me I’d be on medication for the rest of my life and that diet and lifestyle don’t make a difference with Type 2 diabetes. In fact, one of his nurses told me that I was not insulin resistant. How the heck can a Type 2 diabetic NOT be insulin resistant? The idea of going back on these prescriptions that force me to eat more carbohydrates to counteract their effects is frustrating to me. Can you help me figure this out?

Thank you for any advice you can give,

Matt

2. Does having an ApoE4 require me to reduce my saturated fat intake to prevent the atherogenic small dense LDL particles from developing?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have an ApoE4 that researchers say makes me more susceptible to having higher LDL cholesterol as well as an increased risk for developing heart disease. I eat LCHF and although my LDL-C is high (150) my Small LDL-P count is low at 129 and I’m solidly in Pattern A. My question for you guys is this: Should I be avoiding saturated fats like coconut oil and replacing them with monounsaturated fats like avocados? Will the saturated fats increase the number of small dense LDL particles even though my triglycerides are low?

Thanks for your help with this one!

Bryan

3. Does the gluconeogenesis that happens from consuming too much protein apply also to the protein found in eggs and plant proteins?

Greetings you guys,

I bought Keto Clarity at Barnes and Noble last week and have read about a third of it so far. When you refer to gluconeogenesis, does that apply to just to meats or is it to eggs and even plant-based proteins as well? Or are the proteins found in eggs and plants different than those in animal-based sources? I’ve always wondered why I never did well on the Atkins diet and this excessive protein issues seems to be the answer I’ve been looking for.

Look forward to hearing your answer about my questions.

Brian

-- Does dietary fat that makes you feel good and happy while eating it spike dopamine in the same way that consuming sugar does? Is this good or bad?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

It’s very easy for me to wrap my head around and understand the spike in dopamine that takes place in your brain when you consume sugar. But a goofy thought ran through my head and it made me wonder if dietary fat could have the exact same effect in a fat-adapted person. I know that when I eat fat I always feel really good and happy. So does that mean I had a spike in dopamine? And if so, what are the ramifications for a ketogenic dieter if that is indeed happening?

Thanks for being there,

Jeff

– Why am I still experiencing leg cramps from the keto flu when I am seemingly doing all the right things to prevent them?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I have been on a ketogenic diet for the last three years and regularly see blood ketones at 1.5-2.0 as well as blood sugar from 65-70. I use intermittent fasting five days a week sometimes for up to 24 hours at a time. I’ve been experiencing some excruciating leg cramps at night despite what I thought was a foolproof electrolyte balance strategy—400mg chelated magnesium prior to bedtime, bone broth with pink Himalayan sea salt throughout the day, and a half avocado for potassium on days I am eating. I drink half my body weight in ounces of water for proper hydration. Additional, I take essential amino before intense workouts and L-Carnitine 4000mg in the morning five days a week. So why am I still having these cramps on both fasting and feasting days? What am I missing?

Thanks for helping me figure this out,

Amanda

1. What is the ideal ratio of sodium to potassium for someone who is consuming a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I need your help determining what the correct sodium:potassium ratio should be on a zero-carb, ketogenic diet.

Here’s a little bit about me and my current routine:

Info: weightlifter, sprinter, 33 years, 5' 11" male, 70-120 g protein/day, fat to satiety, 1/2 lb raw liver/wk, 2 cloves raw garlic/day, 1.5 g fish oil/day, 600 mg transdermal magnesium/day, 400 mg iodine/day (kelp), 1 g vit C/day (acerola cherry powder), 10 g glycine/day and an occasional scoop of collagen powder.

SALT: If I supplement more than about 2 g of sodium a day (usually in 2 L water, Redmond Real Salt) I get nasal congestion and have NO IDEA why (vasodilation or constriction? blood pressure?). Yet in the keto community it is recommended to eat 4 g sodium/day or more. Are the amounts and ratio of sodium and potassium just very understudied and based on the shit standard diet? NOBODY seems to have a good grasp on this.

POTASSIUM: Ideal potassium falls in the 2 - 4 g/day range. The fact that sodium helps retain potassium complicates this further. Also, I can't supplement with NoSalt (potassium chloride) because it's said to be dangerous (I take 500mg anyways and haven't noticed anything bad such as heart palps.) But, if I were to take 2 - 4 g would it be dangerous? I can't get this from vegetables because I'm zero carb, and how on earth did our ancestors get it? It makes zero sense to me that you would need to eat inordinate amounts of spinach and chard just to reach this questionable potassium goal.

I feel like I really have this diet bolted down, but the lack of specificity with electrolytes in the community is majorly frustrating. Please drop a knowledge bomb on me.

Thanks for your help,

Alex

2. Why am I short of breath the day after interval training since I shifted over from carb-loading to a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been a carb-loading cyclist for many years and switched over to the low-carb/high-fat diet about 5 months ago. My problem is that I can go out for an hour of interval training on my bike and the very next day I am short of breath when going up a flight of stairs. I am 67 years old, 5' 10”, and weigh 163 pounds. I do not have any of the old cycling problems of blood sugar swings and can go for many hours before getting hungry in the morning. So why the shortness of breath? Thanks for your insights.

3. Does a resting heart rate in the 40’s/50’s after adopting a ketogenic diet mean something bad is happening to my health?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating keto for the past year and have seen incredible effects on my weight and health markers. However, I noticed my blood pressure and resting heart rate have come way down since adopting this way of eating. My BP has always been on the lower end, but my resting heart rate is regularly down in the 50’s and sometimes even the 40’s now. My cardiologist said it’s because of my weight loss and exercise routine, but this seems to have happened suddenly over the past three months. I’ve read various reports online stating how a low-carb, ketogenic diet will make your heart rate drop to dangerous levels and I’m now concerned. Should I be?

Best regards,

Jan

– If you consume a higher amount of fat in your diet but aren’t in a state of ketosis, then are you in any danger of developing chronic disease?

Hi guys,

If someone is eating low-carb, but not keto (between 50-100g net carbs/day), is it still safe for them to be eating the same volume of dietary fat as someone restricting their carbohydrates below the suggested 20-50g/day on a well-formulated ketogenic diet? In other words, is a high-fat diet that is not putting you in a state of nutritional ketosis causing more harm than good? Thanks for the clarification.

– What are your thoughts about our pediatrician’s recommendation for our daughter to eat “plenty of carbohydrates” to treat her concussion? Wouldn’t keto be better?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I've been binge listening to your show since October and have finally caught up. I love learning about all of the new things that Dr. Will talks about.

Last week, my daughter fell at school and bumped her head. Her pediatrician said that she had a mild concussion. She sent me home with the protocol below to follow. I thought it was interesting that they advised us to feed my daughter lots of carbohydrates. I would think that keto would help decrease the inflammation and improve her brain function from this traumatic injury. What are your thoughts on this protocol? BTW, my daughter is doing okay now.

Thank you for your wonderful show!

1. Is it possible to feed my healthy microbiome with only 10g vegetable carbs per day?

Hey guys,

I have questions about how to best maintain my healthy microbiome while on the keto diet. I have researched this topic extensively and keep doing the math. My hunger is minimized and blood sugar is better controlled by counting TOTAL carbohydrates aiming for around 20g daily, including my vegetable intake. I never get more than 10g vegetable carbs per day. Is this enough for me to feed my good gut flora? I take probiotics and have heard that without fiber the bad bacteria grow and will even start snacking on the stomach lining. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

2. Why did my Keratosis pilaris condition (with skin flare-ups and spreading across my body) become worse when I became keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

As a T1 diabetic for three decades, I’m constantly working on ways to control this disease. Keto has been a tremendous help over the past three months of being strict with it. I recently noticed a big flare up of my Keratosis pilaris (KP) and it’s spread to my thighs and calves when it has remained mostly on my arms since I was diagnosed. A clean diet is supposed to help improve KP, but this seems to have gotten worse than ever before. Is this because of my autoimmune disease or could it somehow be related to keto? I’ve tried dry brushing, oil pulling, and more, but nothing is helping. Can you help me figure this out? Thanks for your great podcast!

3. Will taking ascorbic acid as a supplement to my keto diet to help manage my Lyme disease actually block my ability to make ketones?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently embarked on keto and have reached a state of nutritional ketosis. I would like to add in megadoses of non-GMO ascorbic acid as a supplement to my keto diet since it helps me with the symptoms of chronic Lyme disease. However, in my research about this, I’ve learned that ascorbic acid is biochemically similar in nature to glucose and the body treats it as such. Will taking this interfere with my desire to produce ketones?

Kind regards,

Elisa

– Would the increase in blood ketones and decrease in blood sugar levels after switching to a mostly plant-based keto approach be from the microbiome changes?

Hi Jimmy,

I want to share this with you because I find really interesting what happen with my numbers after doing a ketogenic diet with lots of vegetables and only eggs as my fat and protein source. I was surprised to find that my blood ketones went up considerably around 2.0 mmol/L in the morning with blood sugar levels in the low 70’s eating this way. Previously on my ketogenic diet, I’d see closer to 0.5 blood ketones and blood glucose levels in the 90’s. Do you think this very positive change in my numbers is a direct result of embracing a mostly plant-based ketogenic approach that fed into changing my microbiome for the better?

I really admire the work you guys are doing and keep it up!

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I’m a long time listener and really enjoy the wisdom and experiences you guys share. You both do such a great job!

I started eating keto in January 2017. Unfortunately I wasn’t too strict last year with way too many “cheats” and I had a terrible time breaking my sugar addiction. Still I dropped 30 pounds in the first 2 months. I also do intermittent fasting and short extended fasts. I very gradually dropped another 10 pounds since then for a total of 40. I’m 58 years old and at 5’9” weigh 158 pounds. That’s probably where I was in high school and I feel great in so many ways!

At the beginning of this year I gave a renewed effort to be strict with my keto and IF and have had pretty good success. I purchased a blood ketone meter from BestKetoneTest.com and I test daily to stay in nutritional ketosis. A few days ago, we had a blood drive in our community and I donated as I normally do. Before donating I had regularly been in the 3.0 blood ketone range. The morning after donating I dropped to 1.1, but then the following morning I was back to 3.1. My eating stayed the same and there were no other changes. While I’m not concerned, I am very curious about this—does donating blood affect ones ketone levels?

Thanks again for all you guys do!

1. Why do I have a strong ammonia smell after exercising? Is it the acetone indicating deep ketosis?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I am a 49-year old man who has been low-carb/keto for 2 years and I’ve lost 50 pounds and have kept it off. I don’t measure ketones because I don’t suffer from metabolic syndrome or diabetes so I can’t justify the expense of a breath meter or the pain of a finger prick. However, based on energy level, constant satiety, and mental clarity I’m pretty sure I am in ketosis more often than not.

I recently started taking hour long walks at a brisk pace and transitioned to interval sprints with a goal of eventually running a 5K. At the end my last two sessions I smelled a strong ammonia scent. What does this mean? Online forums mentioned the following words and phrases: burning protein as fuel, amino acids, urea, nitrogen, uric acid, low glucose/glycogen levels in the muscles, and wait for it….kidneys!

Am I doing more harm than good by exercising? Could the scent be an indication that I am in deep ketosis? Am I smelling acetone as a byproduct instead of ammonia? One forum mentioned the cure to the ammonia smell is to eat more carbs! Not going to happen! What gives? Love your show and your other platforms?

Thanks,

Ken

2. Why does my keto husband get tingling hands while sleeping? Why do I have an itchy scalp while eating ketogenic?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I listen to you guys often. Thanks for everything you do. I have a couple of questions for you guys:

1. When my husband eats strict keto, his hands tingle and go numb especially when sleeping. The strange thing is if he eats lots of carbs this doesn't happen. He supplements with potassium and magnesium, but it isn't helping.

2. I have eaten a strict keto diet for 18 months with no cheating with junk food. I have a bad itch towards the front of my scalp. It’s not dandruff, just a bad itch. Is this related to my ketogenic diet?

Thank you for your help with my questions.

3. Why has my fasting insulin and hsCRP levels increased since adopting a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I just had some blood work done and my lipid panel looks worse, although I understand that this isn't uncommon when you’re losing weight following a ketogenic diet. Maria Emmerich stated in one of her books that all the excess fat from the fat cells gets released into the blood when you go keto. So, that part makes some sense to me. However, my fasting insulin has also increased (it was 10 in June 2016 and is now 13) and my C-Reactive Protein reading is also dramatically higher (1.6 in June, now 7.7). I'm mostly just shocked about the fasting insulin since I'm not eating hardly any carbs at all and no sugar. I'd be interested to hear any ideas you might have.

I eat chicken or beef (homemade) bone broth regularly, Sauerkarut (no sugar) regularly, avocados almost daily, red leaf lettuce salad with black olives, some onion (white or green) with Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing almost daily, free range eggs, grass fed meats whenever possible, Wellshire sugar-free bacon, grass-fed ghee, coconut oil, avocado oil, Chai tea sweetened with Stevia with whipping cream (grass-fed), Lakanto monkfruit chocolate, cheeses from grass-fed cows, some beets, Miracle Noodles from time to time, and ketogenic wine usually only once per week. That's pretty much the extent. No fruit, no starchy vegetables. I usually don't eat until about noon every day and try not to eat after 6:30 pm.

Thank you,

Shelley

-- Why does it take some people several weeks and even months to become keto-adapted when the body only holds a minimal amount of glucose?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I read 'Keto Clarity' (which I loved) and there something I don't understand that you mentioned in the book. You said that it can take several weeks and even months for some people to get into a state of nutritional ketosis. How is this possible? Isn’t the amount of glucose in the body insufficient for remaining a sugar burner for such a long period of time?

Thanks for your help with this nagging question.

1. Why am I not experiencing the mental and energy benefits of ketosis despite having higher levels of blood ketones?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been strict keto since January seeing high levels of blood ketones and low levels of blood sugar. But I still don’t have the energy to resist chocolate or wine on Saturdays. I thought when I got into ketosis that I would feel a sudden rush of energy and positive well-being. That simply hasn’t happened for me. How is it possible for me to have higher ketone levels and not experience the mental and energy benefits that come with that? I love the foods I get to eat on keto, but I need to start seeing some of the known benefits to keep me doing it.

Thank you so much,

Mary

2. Does a ketogenic diet cure vertigo? Is there any scientific research that connects ketosis with treating vertigo?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am a HUGE fan of Keto talk and I have been eating keto for over four months. I'm a very healthy 38-year old woman who suffered from vertigo for about six months everyday that forced me to stop doing yoga since I couldn’t keep my balance. Within the first six weeks of eating keto, my vertigo completely vanished and I was shocked to say the least. On New Year’s Eve, I went on a bit of a sugar binge cheat and came out of ketosis and my vertigo returned with a vengeance much worse than it had ever been before a couple of days later. It thankfully only lasted about a week and hasn’t been back since. Seeing how powerful keto was in managing my vertigo, I definitely don’t want to ever get out of ketosis again. Is there any research studies connecting a ketogenic diet to curing vertigo? Or have you seen this in any of your patients in your functional medicine clinic, Dr. Cole? I don't know if it's coincidental or if keto actually stopped my vertigo. My doctors all say they have no idea what’s causing it to begin with and now I’m curious why keto is seemingly resolving it. Thank you and keep up the great work!

3. Is there any scientific evidence either pro or con for using a ketogenic diet while nursing a baby?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I wanted to ask you guys about the safety of nursing while in ketosis. I am a physician who was reamed in an online medical mom-focused weight loss forum because I shared that I was nursing my baby while in ketosis and people were saying that ketones are harmful to babies and can cause developmental delays. I knew this was completely whacked since we know ketosis is a natural state for babies and humans in general. I’m eating 60+g carbs daily, so I’m probably only mildly keto anyway. The studies they cited had to do with epileptic children eating ketogenic diets and having neurological delays. My baby eats the same keto foods I eat and I add in a few berries for a sweet treat. She’s completely healthy and has never been sick. I was just stunned to hear so many of my fellow medical colleagues react so harshly to what I see as being an extremely healthy way to eat. Are you aware of any scientific evidence that shows a ketogenic diet is safe for nursing babies?

Sincerely

Dr. Dorothy, DO

– Are higher blood sugar levels in a Type 1 diabetic eating a ketogenic diet just as harmful as consuming too many carbohydrates or protein?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Limansky,

I love Keto Talk and I have a question about high blood sugar while eating low-carb, high-fat. I am a Type 1 diabetic and I try very hard to keep my blood sugar at an optimal level between 80-100. But given that my blood sugars can drastically rise for any reason at all (including because of hormones, stress, anything) it is tricky. Here is my question for you: If I am eating very low-carb, moderate protein, and high-fat as we aim to do on a ketogenic diet but my blood sugar rises above 100 because of the challenges of being a Type 1 diabetic, does my body then react to the high-fat intake int he same way as if I had consumed too many carbs and/or protein? Will this high blood sugar level under this scenario have the same impact on the body? My goal is to be completely keto-adapted all the time, but that’s a challenge with Type 1 diabetes. I appreciate any input you might have for me.

1. Does the inflammation-lowering effect of a ketogenic diet help ward off the development of the cold or flu?

Hi Jimmy and John,

I love listening to Keto Talk every Thursday as it motivates me to stick with my ketogenic lifestyle. As a touring musician and singer, the biggest issue I’ve found among my traveling peers is catching a cold. Airplanes, tour buses, late nights, and jet lag all take their toll on our immune systems. Because we have to use our voices for our livelihood, it really sucks when we get that Throat Tickle of Doom. However, I’ve noticed when I REALLY stick with keto while I'm on the road, I've observed times where everyone else gets sick and I don't. If I do feel a cold starting to come on, it’s definitely far less inflammation in my throat in the morning despite long flights and rigorous schedules. Interestingly,, when I've had a night of carb-filled indulgence, I will often come down with a cold the very next day. Is there any evidence that eating a ketogenic diet helps strengthen the immune system against things like the cold, flu, laryngitis, and more? Am I crazy or am I on to something here?

Thanks for your help!

2. Does being in a constant state of nutritional ketosis increase your body temperature? Is this elevated temperature harmful or a sign of health?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Limansky,

Thank you for the Keto Talk podcast as I’ve found the discussions very helpful. I first went low-carb (via Atkins) in 2008 or so and I bought the pee strips to test for ketosis. While I lost the weight I wanted to lose—about 20 pounds—I allowed carb-creep to set in! Menopause also came along about that time and whammo blammo, I put on nearly 30 pound in the next year. I decided to start eating ketogenic in January and lost weight and inches off my waist with a concerted effort to stay in ketosis for longer periods. But I’ve noticed I am often VERY warm. At first I thought it was hot flashes again which had pretty much stopped for years, but my temperature goes up and stays up. All I found online is that it is possible that fat burning increases body temperature. Do you know if this is true for people who are in a constant state of ketosis? Is this a good or a bad thing?

Thanks again for your work.

3. Are there any known therapeutic effects for treating Gastroparesis with a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Keto Doctor,

Thanks for all you do—you are my go-to for all things ketogenic. I’m writing because my brother suffers with Gastroparesis that developed from his diabetes. Have you heard if a ketogenic diet can help with this condition? I’ve been looking online about this and there are too many conflicting things said about ketosis for this condition. Of course, his doc wants him on the same old low-fat, low-fiber diet that hasn’t helped him in his life ever. He’s currently hospitalized for this and we need some help. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

– Does an A1c level below 6.0 which is typical of someone eating a ketogenic diet indicate possible hypoglycemia?

Hi guys,

When I was first diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I signed up for the dLife newsletter to help me figure out what to do to improve my health. I then started listening to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast because I was interested in reversing diabetes not just accepting it as an inevitable fat. But in the latest newsletter from dLife, I couldn’t believe they were stating that an A1c of less than 6 means you might be hypoglycemic! Here’s the link to what they sent out to dLife subscribers today: http://dlife.com/a1c-blood-sugar-average/?utm_source=Newsletter-20171201 Could you please address this and share how and why they got it wrong?

– Should I switch my keto diet over to a low-fat, whole foods, organic diet when I’m in the midst of my period?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Going keto has made me view the whole world of nutrition from a new angle. It has changed my life completely. I’m a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer and found the research on ketogenic diets so fascinating since it was not a major focus in my education. I used to have severe acne, long and arduous monthly cycles, excess weight that I couldn't shift, and regular bouts of depression. Even on a real foods-based Paleo diet, I couldn’t figure out why my health was less than optimal.

Now I’m happily eating keto, but I noticed during my period that I come out of ketosis rather easily and see a corresponding weight gain from it. I know this is pretty common as you've mentioned on a previous episode, but I worry that coming out of ketosis leads to a spike in insulin followed by fat storage of the dietary fat I am eating rather than using it for fuel. This makes me think perhaps it's best for me to veer back to my low-fat, whole foods, organic diet during my period. Does that make sense to do that? Or is there any other way I can get around it?

I want to be able to advocate and share this diet with my future clients and would appreciate your thoughts and wisdom.

All the very best,

Charlotte

1. Does a ketogenic diet lower leptin levels too much and slow your metabolism? Do only 1% of keto dieters stick with it over the long-term?

Greetings Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

My wife and I have been living the keto lifestyle for nearly two years with awesome success. I follow a trainer who has given me gobs of exercise advice that has been mostly great, but some of it a little strange. I received an email from him where he mentioned keto and specifically how it affects the female metabolism. My wife and I watched the video and we were very turned off, disgusted, angry, and confused, to say the least. Ultimately, the infomercial was a guy named Brad Pilon who pointed to leptin and how keto turns off this hormone and slows the metabolism. He also pointed to sustainability as being the biggest reason people cannot stick with keto claiming that less than 1% stick with it. Anyways, I don't know if you could address these issues on your show, but we are certainly not concerned about living keto. I know it is next to impossible to combat all of the "anti-keto" rhetoric that’s out there, but this one definitely needs a response. Thank you for taking the time to read my rant and for all you do for us Ketonians.

2. Why does eating vegetables kick me out of ketosis? Why am I still hungry eating keto now that breastfeeding my baby has slowed down?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thanks for such a great podcast. I’m a 33-year old full time working mom with a 3-year old and a 14-month old. I started my ketogenic journey about a year ago to shed my baby weight and now I’m pretty lean with a BMI of 19.5. I have two questions for you guys. I use a breath ketone monitor to make sure that I’m in ketosis and I’ve noticed that my carb tolerance is very low. Eating just 5-6 pieces of broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or any other keto-friendly vegetables completely knocks me out of ketosis for upwards of 24 hours. I only seem to tolerate spinach but I worry that I will not get enough micronutrients if I can’t eat more vegetables than that. I aim for 12-15 servings of fat per day and I always eat when I’m hungry.

This brings me to my second question—why am I always hungry on keto? At first I thought it was perfectly normal because I breastfed my baby severals times a day for 13 months. But now that I’ve cut down on the breastfeeding sessions to only two small feeds per day, I’m still very hungry all the time even when I know I’m in ketosis. Do I have to stop breastfeeding completely to start experiencing appetite suppression or could the fact that I’m lean make me hungrier because I don’t have a lot of available body fat for my body to use for fuel?

From what I know, I’m not pre-diabetic or anything. I am hypothyroid and take 75mcg of Synthroid daily. I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old and starving myself on a low-carb, low-fat diet so I would like to work with my doctor to see if I can come off the medication now that I eat healthy. Thanks again for a fantastic show and for answering my questions.

3. Why am I experiencing edema when my body is in a state of ketosis? Why does it disappear when I add in more carbs to get out of ketosis?

Hi guys,

I’m a 62-year old female, weight 145 pounds on my 5'8' body and started on the ketogenic diet in June 2017. It took me four months to reach therapeutic levels of blood ketones and become keto-adapted. I have cycled in and out of ketosis three times since that time for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then in January. I closely monitor my blood ketones and noticed something strange started in my body. I now experience significant edema in my face with bagging eyelids, swollen hands, and swollen ankles. I noticed when I get out of ketosis, the edema disappears. Why is ketosis seemingly causing this edema?

I went Paleo in 2011 after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and managed it pretty well with diet, supplements, taking thyroid hormone (compounded T3) as well as an estrogen patch and progesterone. I love the energy I’ve experienced on keto, but I don’t like this edema. I’ve been tinkering with thyroid medication and adding in more electrolytes and water, but nothing has seemed to help. The only thing that seems to work is cycling in more carbohydrates like sweet potato, squash, and starchy vegetables. Can you explain to me what’s going on here? I want all the benefits ketosis gives me, but the edema is too much to handle.

– How exactly does a ketogenic diet bring about healing in the body once you become fat-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been thinking a lot about a topic for you guys to talk about that could be a great discussion. We also talk about how the body starts the healing process after becoming fat-adapted from eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat because of the insulin and inflammation-lowering effects that come from being in a ketogenic state. But what does your body actually do when insulin and inflammation levels go down? How exactly is the body healing? I think this would be interesting to hear for all of us Ketonians striving to eat this way to heal the damage that’s been done. Thanks for your awesome podcast!

– Why am I waking up in the middle of the night and struggling to get back to sleep? What can I do?

 


Hi Keto Talk,

 


I understand sleep is an important component of ketosis and overall health, but it’s a big problem for me. For the past three years I wake up between 3:15-3:30AM and struggle to get back to sleep. A few months ago my doctor prescribed Silenor. It seemed to help in the beginning but it is helping much less now. I believe this medication might be interfering with my pursuit of ketosis and fat loss. I know I have high cortisol levels, but my doctor is unconcerned since I don’t display any of the typical symptoms. I’ve tried melatonin and valerian, but they both give me horrendous nightmares. Most sleep herbs are designed for falling asleep, but that’s not my issue. Do you have any suggestions for me?

 


Thanks,

 


Laura

1. How do I deal with this low progesterone to optimize and complement my ketogenic nutrition?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


I have learned so much from both of you on my health journey! I have lost 50 pounds since last May using keto and intermittent fasting, implementing much of your advice, and I am now very close to my weight goal. I hit the occasional plateau along the way and at those times I noticed I would need to shift my focus from losing weight to understanding the big picture of my overall health. In that regard, my Mirena IUD (which releases synthetic progesterone teaching my body to make less of its own progesterone) began to seem relevant. I had it implanted in November 2012 and replaced in November 2017. When I had it replaced, I was weighing daily so it was easy to notice a six pound weight jump overnight for no apparent reason.This happened three days after I got the new device and it led me to do some research.

 


I concluded that I really need to get that thing removed which I did in mid-December 2017 over the pushback from my doctor. I got my period back almost immediately and it lasted about a week, but since then (40 days) I have not had my period again. More disturbingly, I am now experiencing other symptoms like itchy skin, shakiness, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, and weakness. I considered electrolyte balance and treated for that with extra salt and magnesium (which always works for me during fasting)—but no effect. I tested my blood sugar when feeling extra shaky and weak—it really felt like hypoglycemia—and it was 83 preprandial (my A1C in November was 4.7).

 


Based on my research, my symptoms suggest low progesterone; if that is the case, how should I proceed? Should I tough it out and wait for my body to ramp its own progesterone production back up? Should I take bioidentical progesterone, or would that throw off my overall hormone balance? Should I look instead to adaptogens like Maca? Is there anything I can focus on nutritionally to encourage a return to optimal hormone balance? I had been feeling so amazing up until recently so these symptoms are hard to miss and are definitely discouraging.

 


Thank you for the wonderful podcast, I look forward to it every week!

 


Kind regards,

 


Stacey

 


2. Is eating high-protein long-term like eating high-carb? Are very low triglycerides a health problem?

 


Hi guys,

 


Can five plus years of eating high protein be just as damaging to someone’s metabolism and insulin levels as eating five years worth of carbage? It seems like right now I am just maintaining weight and body fat levels after the initial water weight loss. I have been in nutritional ketosis for the past five weeks with blood ketone levels ranging from .6-1.3 in the morning. My fasting morning blood glucose readings are 85-102. Also, does having super low triglycerides (below 45) show a sign of any health issues? My triglycerides have been that low for years, way before keto.

 


Thank you so much guys. I have literally been listening to your shows on repeat ever since I discovered them a few weeks ago! You have so much information and explain things in a very fact of the matter way which I really appreciate!

 


Thank you!

3. Is it typical for keto to produce out of whack energy metabolism markers on an organic acid test?

 


Hi Jimmy and Will,

 


I recently did an organic acid test to see the effects keto was having and my energy metabolism markers were completely out of whack. In fact, the people who ran the test took extra long because they repeated it a few times just to be sure there wasn’t a lab error. I’m pretty freaked out by the results and don’t know if there is something problematic going on or if this might be typical of someone on keto.

 


Much appreciated!

– What is the major difference between burning fat and burning ketones for fuel?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


People sometimes talk about burning fat and burning ketones in the same breath as though they were more or less the same thing, but don't think that's quite the case, is it? Let me describe what I think is roughly going on and then please correct me where I am wrong: Assuming blood insulin levels are low enough, fat can be released from the adipose cells. It was in the adipose cells in the form of triglycerides and after release, it is converted into free fatty acids and then the glycerol part is converted into glucose. The free fatty acids go via the blood and can be used in the muscles directly as fuel, for example. Some of the free fatty acids make it to the liver and can be converted to ketones, some of which are used to fuel the brain, and probably can

also fuel the muscles and other parts of the body. Now, in some descriptions, I see ketones being described as byproducts of fat metabolism which I assume means that first the fatty acids are burned for fuel and then ketones result as a byproduct of this metabolism. Is that correct, and if so, can those ketones also be used as fuel? If so, it implies that fat is indeed a super fuel because it can be used twice so to speak. So then what is the biochemical result of burning ketones? Keep in mind that I am seeking, if possible, a reply that is understandable to a layperson like myself but also one which does not oversimplify the science if that’s humanly possible.

 


Many thanks in advance,

 


Mike

– Does getting hungry during a 24-hour fast mean I’m not yet keto-adapted?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I love keto and appreciate you guys for all of the info you put out there! I'm a 5’7” tall, 31-year old female, and weigh 158 pounds. I have been on a ketogenic diet for the past five weeks keeping my carbohydrate intake between 30-50g daily. I work out for an hour with HIIT and weight training about 3-4 times per week as well as 2-3 one-hour classes of indoor cycling weekly. Overall, I have been feeling pretty good with only occasional fatigue. I recently decided to add in fasting to my routine doing several 24-hour fasts so far. I’ve noticed I start to get hungry about 12 hours into these 24-hour fasts and the hunger just lingers for the rest of the fast. Does this mean I’m not keto-adapted? Thanks for your help!

1. Can someone who produces excess bile eat a ketogenic diet if they can’t handle a higher fat intake?

Hey guys,

My daughter is a big believer in keto and she really wants to do the diet for her health. But she has a terrible time with eating fat, even the healthy fats, because of a bad bile reflux condition where she produces too much bile. Foods like guacamole, sausage, and even eggs make her queasy and nauseated. The standard medical advice for this condition is to go on a low-fat diet--something she knows from her research and experience is not a good thing. Do you have any ideas for her about how she can implement a ketogenic approach with this excessive bile issue? I should add that they have done an endoscopy and the doctor could see where her stomach lining was quite inflamed. She takes medications for that and if she misses just one dose, the result is horrible abdominal pain.

Thanks so much for your help!

2. Does consuming sugar and carbs make the infection from legionnaires' disease better or worse?

Hello my friends,

I am new to keto and had to deal with this condition last week known as legionnaires' disease which is a severe form of pneumonia from the lung inflammation usually caused by an infection. I felt like I was basically starving to death. I consume carbs and sugar the last couple of days of dealing with this because I felt like my body needed them since I was in a mentally dark place. This condition left me crying often and feeling absolutely awful. Did the sugar and carbohydrates I consumed dealing with this make the infection worse or are they somehow a good thing when dealing with legionnaires' disease? Thank you for your insights.

3. Why are my fasting blood glucose levels rising since giving up wine when I went keto and will they normalize over time?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been following a low-carb diet for years and recently shifted over to keto. I love drinking wine every single day and I realized I probably was drinking too much of it. BOO! So I decided to give it up altogether to see if it would boost my ketogenic efforts to lose weight and improve my health markers. I lost 35 pounds a couple of years ago eating low-carb, but I haven’t lost anything more since. One thing I’ve always hung my hat on despite the lack of weight loss is my impeccable blood sugar control as well as other health markers I regularly track. I take a medication called Atacand Plus for hypertension but no other medications. I’m sure dropping the remaining 35 pounds of weight from my body will enable me to come off that medication for good. So here’s my issue: since going keto and coming off of my beloved wine, my fasting blood glucose levels have risen. I thought coming off the wine would be a good thing, but it seems my blood sugar has gone in the opposite direction. What’s causing this to happen and will it eventually normalize over time?

Any insight into this is greatly appreciated. Love your podcasts!

– How do Ketonians effectively explain why people will no longer want to eat their favorite carbohydrate foods anymore once keto-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been keto for about a year and a half and had a few bad weeks over the holidays where I went in and out of ketosis and started having carb cravings again. The most amazing and hard to believe thing about keto has been the way carb cravings completely vanish for good so long as I stay in ketosis. In fact, I am in an office right now with a box of donuts right next to me and I simply don’t care nor do I have a desire to consume them. That’s utterly amazing and something I wouldn’t have imagined possible before being keto and experiencing it for myself. Several people in my life have adopted the ketogenic lifestyle after having seen my success and several others showed interest but could not get past the idea of giving up their beloved carbs. I try to explain to them that after they get keto-adapted, they won’t want carbs anymore. But it’s so hard for them to imagine what that would be like. I think that the biggest challenge we Ketonians have is effectively communicating why people won’t want to consume bread, pasta, chips, and all the other crappy carbage they think they can’t live without anymore. Do you have any suggestions on how to best do this?

Thanks so much for all you do!

– Why do I become more stressed, anxious, depressed, and have worse brain health when I switch to eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I love what you guys do. You’re both a wealth of knowledge and I have learned so much from listening to your podcast. I am a 25 year old male, 220 pounds, 13 percent body fat, and a weightlifter. I have experimented with low-carb/ketogenic diets many times consuming 3500 calories with a macronutrient ratio of fat/protein/carbs at 75/23/3 making sure I supplement with plenty of electrolytes and high-quality sources of fat. My stress levels are somewhat high, but I work on keeping them in check. So here’s my issue: when I switch to a more ketogenic approach, I become very stressed, anxious, somewhat depressed, and actually feel like my brain is working at half-capacity. Based on what I hear you guys talk about with other Ketonians, this is quite the opposite of what should be happening. Why do I feel so crappy? My hypothesis is low serotonin levels, high cortisol levels, and perhaps a genetic inability to thrive on keto. Am I on to something or do you have anything else that I haven’t thought of yet? I am extremely frustrated because I believe keto is the ideal way to eat. Help please!

It gets especially bad after I’ve consumed a really heavy, fatty meal. I am 5’6”,119 pounds, and pretty active. I am trying to gain weight so my daily fat intake is 200g with 20-30g carbohydrates, and 80-100g protein. I've been in ketosis for about 10 and experienced the keto flu which is now getting better. One week into eating keto, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia. Their brochure, of course, said to stay away from fatty foods. They are also checking for gluten intolerance and I already know that I have a slight intolerance to lactose as I would break out with zits every time I drank milk. I haven’t received the result of those tests yet and I haven’t heard much about keto and the impact on a hiatal hernia. Are you are aware of any connection?

2. Would a ketogenic approach provide any relief from the symptoms I’m experiencing from having mono?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thanks for your podcast! I'm a 60 year old woman and have been keto off and on for years and strict keto of 20g carbs daily with intermittent/extended fasts mixed in since May 2016 netting blood ketones levels of .8-2.4. I don't have very much weight to lose and instead use this way of eating to stop my sweet cravings. I have had horrible exhaustion for years and have gone through many treatment programs from many alternative, functional medicine/nutrition programs, but nothing worked. Recently, an MD diagnosed me with the convalescent stage of mono and I have finally found my diagnosis! Sadly, this MD had no solution. Have you heard anything about the relationship between keto and mono? I can see my lymph nodes in my face and neck since they are often very swollen at night, I have annoying tinnitus, and I’m also quite bloated with tummy aches often—my doctor said it’s the mono causing these issues. Any ideas for me to try? I've spent so much money and time trying to get better, I'd love some hope. Thank you so much in advance.

3. Could eating a ketogenic diet reduced the likelihood of developing a streptococcal bacteremia infection?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m 21 years old and have been ketogenic for the past three months seeing major improvements in my appetite, weight, and overall well-being. In 2016, I suffered from streptococcal bacteremia without ever finding the source of the infection. The infectious disease doctor said it was unlikely for me to ever develop it again, but I have a hindsight question about this: had I been eating keto before this happen, could it have reduced the likelihood of me having to suffer from this? Thanks for all the amazing work you do.

– Will taking glycine force your body to burn leftover glucose or will it use stored body fat? Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating low-carb for many years and have only a few more pounds left to lose. I'm currently 5'9" and 142 pounds. I use straight glycine powder (about 4g under my tongue and hold it there for at least 2 minutes) about 45 minutes after every meal to help my digestion. From what I understand, glycine is an amino acid that helps to release insulin to lower glucose and causes glycogen to be released leading to the release of fat cells. My blood ketones range from .9-1.9 mmol and my blood glucose is usually 4.8 to 5.4 (86-97 mg/dL). Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis? Is the glycine forcing my body to burn leftover glucose and not actually burning fat? Or am I burning stored body fat? I’m so confused now and hope that you guys can clear this up for me.

Thank you for your help,

Lisa

– What can a spouse eating keto do to best deal with a non-supportive spouse who doesn’t approve of their chosen diet?

Hey Jimmy and Maria,

Of all the tips and answers you've provided to questions around ketogenic diets, I haven't heard anyone talk about the impact they can have on your relationships. I have an amazing wife who is the mother of our two small children. When I started keto diet last year, she was supportive of my efforts for the first six weeks I was doing it. Part of the challenge was I set her expectations that this would only be a temporary thing. However, once I started seeing some incredibly positive results, I had to continue doing it to reap the benefits. But this is when it created a rift in our relationship. She watched me eat meat and cook foods in bacon grease and couldn’t understand how that could possibly be healthy as she subscribes to a more conventional low-fat diet. Additionally, feeding our kids has been hard (although they do love their daddy’s bacon!). So I decided to relax my ketogenic approach in order to appease my wife and introduced carbs back into my diet. Now I want to do periods of intermittent and extended fasting to mitigate the effects of those added carbs. If my wife reacted to keto the way she did, I can’t imagine how she’s gonna respond to the other F-word. My marriage is very important to me and so is my health. Do you have any tips on how a ketogenic spouse can deal with their spouse who is not supporting their ketogenic way of eating? Thanks for all you do!

1. What vitamin and mineral requirements change from what is in the RDA when you adopt a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I've spent a lot of time learning and implementing the exact ketogenic approach that’s right for me. But it occurred to me as I reviewed my micronutrient intake on keto that the RDA levels from our government are based on a carbohydrate-eating population. The sodium recommendation, for example, is 2.3 grams daily which is woefully inept for someone in nutritional ketosis for a wide variety of reasons you’ve already discussed many times on this podcast. But this example of how far off the RDA for sodium has got me thinking what other micronutrients were are way off on with the recommended daily allowance. I read a study that suggests keto dieters need far less Vitamin C than carb-based eaters. So what other vitamins and mineral RDA requirements might be impacted for someone following a well-formulated ketogenic diet? This seems like an interesting subject to explore.

2. Why does a ketogenic diet and fasting lead to a white or yellow coating on the tongue and will it eventually go away?

Hey Keto Talk,

Many people have pointed out their breath and tongue change while eating a ketogenic diet and during a fast. I’ve seen people posting pictures of their tongue that show a white or yellow coating. What in the world is this and will it eventually go away?

3. Why did my body suddenly stop thriving despite still being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I started my keto diet a couple of weeks ago and it was typical—the first 3 days were miserable, but on day 4 I felt a drastically better as the ketones kicked in. I had five days of incredible energy, suppressed appetite, and superb cognitive benefits as my blood ketones soared into the 2-3 mmol range. It was great! But then things took a change for the worse as I suddenly started feeling cranky, sluggish, and dealing with brain fog. My ketones dipped slightly, but I was still well into ketosis at 1.5+ on the blood meter. I’ve been drinking plenty of water, consuming sodium, magnesium, and potassium for all the electrolyte benefits. So my questions for you guys is this: Did my body start rejecting the ketones I had been thriving on because it wanted to shift back to burning glucose again? Or is this simply a part of becoming keto-adapted? Any suggestions you have about my situation would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Rob

– Can a BAC breath alcohol analyzer measure ketone levels accurately? Are ketone levels of 5.0+ dangerous?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I have a quick question about using a simple breath alcohol analyzer to test ketone levels. From my understanding, you multiply the number you get on the BAC meter by 4-5 to get the equivalent blood ketone reading. So a 0.4 reading on the BAC would equate to 1.6-2.0 mmol in blood ketones. Is this a valid way to test for ketosis? I know it’s probably inaccurate, but how far off is it? Using this equation to determine my level of ketones with my keto and fasting efforts, I got a 1.3 reading on the BAC which would equate to 5.2-6.5 mmol on the blood ketone meter. Is this a dangerous level of ketones to have?

Thank you for answering my question.

– Is there any connection between HIV medications and the expected benefits of a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to your podcasts everyday and I think you guys are awesome speakers. I'm kinda desperate for some answers as I am HIV positive taking HAART (Genvoya) and have lost 13 pounds rather easily eating keto. I love this way of eating, but for some reason while I'm in ketosis I just don’t feel right. I tried it for several weeks and even kept my salt/potassium/magnesium intake up to help balance my electrolytes. Being on a ketogenic diet, I’ve noticed my sleep get deeper after I used to deal with insomnia regularly. During ketosis I slept like a baby...almost too deep of a sleep if that's possible because my head is swimming all day after waking up from this. Is there some metabolic issue with the HIV medications I am taking that could be preventing me from getting the cognitive and energy benefits of ketones? For now, I'm just eating low-carb but avoiding ketosis because of these negative effects.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

1. Does a high-fat diet disrupt the mucous gut barrier and change the role the microbiome plays in the body?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Bestselling author Sylvia Tara writes on page 120 of her book The Secret Life of Fat that "the mucous gut barrier can be disrupted by a high-fat diet." She quotes Dr. Patrice Cani, a researcher, who implies that high-fat diets change the microbiota composition by disrupting gut microbiome function. Should we Ketonians be concerned about this? I checked Dr. Google, but that only confused me more. Can you share what this is about?

Thanks for all the great information!

2. Why is my heart racing since I started keto and when can I expect things to return to normal again? Would intense exercise be good or bad during this time?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I'm a 25-year old guy that started doing keto about a week and a half ago and over the past three days my heart has been racing. I usually have a resting heart rate around 55-60 bpm, but when I started eating keto it jumped up to around 75 bpm. I've been doing a lot of research on this and most of what I'm finding deals with electrolyte imbalances. I have been salting my foods with pink Himalayan sea salt, using lite salt for potassium, and magnesium. How long does it usually take to rebalance all the electrolytes when all of these things are being dumped at the beginning of keto so my heart rate will return to normal? And should I be doing high intensity exercise while my body is still adjusting to keto or would that make this issue worse? I'm starting to get a little worried about it.

Be Blessed!

3. Can keto help endometriosis? Will food allergies prevent me from going keto? If dairy is estrogenic, should I avoid them if I have high estrogen?

Hi Jimmy and Will

I have several questions for you guys to answer. Is keto effective for people dealing with endometriosis and endometriosis chocolate cysts (endometriomas)? I already know that I have a moderate intolerance (which means I can only have them every 4 days) to eggs whites, cow's milk, whey, coconut and avocado. I know most people just suspect they are intolerant, but I did blood tests that confirm it. Would these food allergies prevent me from going keto? I’ve heard that dairy is inflammatory for the body and can carry extra estrogens, so should women with high estrogen avoid dairy altogether?

Thank you for addressing these for me.

– How is it possible for A1c to fall into a healthy range while fasting insulin precipitously rises?

Hi guys,

I am a devoted listener and have found so much information useful to me on my health journey. I am a very active, very trim 5'6" 115-pound woman who is 55 years old living in the Colorado forest. For as long as I can remember, I have been eating a ketogenic diet for 6 months of the year (during the fall and winter) for most of my adult life and have gone fully keto year round the past two years. I drink wine from Dry Farm Wines but no other alcohol. My question is about some blood test results that have me scratching my head about what to make of it. I do regular home A1c tests and I’ve noticed it drop from 5.8 down to 5.0. Perfect response on keto. But when I had my insulin checked over that same time period, I noticed it has risen from 8 to 15 in just six months while eating keto. How is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

– What evidence is there that it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to become keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am such a big fan of Keto Talk and have a quick question for you guys to address. I’m in a Facebook discussion with a calories in, calories out carb-lover. He says there is no such thing keto-adaptation that takes upwards of 4-6 weeks. This fits within his narrative and I would like to rebut that if possible. Do you have any evidence from research that discusses the shift from sugar burner to fat burner and how long it can take? I remember Dr. Nally used to say that cell membrane transporters can take 4-6 weeks to optimize for optimal ketone utilization. Can you help me respond to this keto skeptic?

Thanks and best regards,

1. Why have my episodes of vertigo increased since I started eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am very grateful for your podcasts as I find them extremely helpful to me and my family as we continue on this ketogenic lifestyle. I am a 33-year old female and was diagnosed with vertigo seven years ago. These episodes were always sporadic when they would hit every couple of years. But I’ve noticed since I started keto that these episodes are happening with greater frequency. Perhaps it coincidence that they started happening more often when I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but I’m wondering if this is something I should expect to be happening more when eating this way. In five months of keto, I’ve lost 55 pounds and feel amazing except for the vertigo issues. Any ideas you can share about this with me?

2. Can keto help me normalize my cortisol levels so I can stop my progressive weight gain?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I had my metabolism tested with one of those at-home blood and saliva tests and it came back saying I have abnormally low cortisol. I tested myself because I have been rapidly gaining weight even though I follow a low-carb diet and exercise regularly. I’ll admit my low-carb diet up until lately has not been ideal because it is probably too low-fat and too high-protein. I now know better after reading Keto Clarity. Everything I have read about having low cortisol talks about it within the context of having Addison’s disease. I don’t have any other symptoms of Addison’s and I’m wondering why I’m having these low cortisol readings. Would a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet help remedy the cortisol issues? My objective is to be healthy, but I desperately want to stop gaining weight despite eating well. I have always been normal weight my entire life. Any insights you could give me are appreciated.

Thank you,

– What can a Ketonian share with their non-keto primary care physician to encourage him to learn more about a low-carb, high-fat diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for health care—Houston, Texas where the Texas Medical Center is located. But even with all of the medical schools, doctors, and health professionals in this city, I have not yet been able to find a primary care physician who has adequate knowledge about keto within a reasonable driving distance of my home. Like most of us Ketonians, I will likely need to do what I can to educate my current primary care physician about the ins and outs of a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach. Do you have any suggestions about how I can begin this process with my doctor in the very limited 10ish minutes I have with him as a patient? What specific information can I convey to my doctor that would make a positive initial impression about keto to encourage him to learn more? What are the key points to underscore and what should I never NOT talk about because it would immediately trigger a negative response? Or is all of this an exercise in futility? Help!

Thank you for a great podcast.

I love that I have a natural cure for this annoying issue, but I still want to know why! Thanks for doing what you do!

1. Why did my white blood cell count drop to “very low” levels since I went keto?

What can I do to raise it back up again? Hi guys, I love the show and especially love your passion for this topic. I have a question for you to address that is a bit concerning. My wife and I are both 55 years old and in very good health. We went Paleo a couple of years ago and became fully keto last year. My wife had blood work done recently that showed her white blood cell count was very low at 2.9. See below. In looking back at one of her pre-keto labs from 2015, her WBC was low at that time as well at 4.1. But now it has dropped into the "very low" range of 2.9 since going fully keto. Is there any relationship between being in a state of nutritional ketosis and low white blood cell count? Do you have any recommendations on how to boost her WBC? Should I increase my protein?

Thank you for all you do!

2. Why did I lose my period when I started eating keto?

Why is my skin still so dry despite eating a ketogenic diet? Dear Jimmy and Will, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Keto Talk. I’ve been eating this way for a few months and really feel great. I have always been sporty and active living at a healthy weight with a good diet. But I have suffered from multiple illnesses over the years, including orthostatic hypotension, hypermobility spectrum disorder, psoriasis, and very dry skin especially on my forearms and shins. Much to my amazement, since adopting a keto lifestyle, my balance has completely resolved after two decades of problems with this! Additionally, the psoriasis appears to be settling down. After listening to so many of your podcasts, I realize my multiple illnesses, 10 years of PTSD, and 8 concussions have caused some major inflammation in my body. So with all this context about me, here are my two concerns: Why have my periods stopped since going keto when I’ve always been regular before? Is this normal hormonal reaction and when should I expect it to restart? And why is my skin still very dry? Will it eventually clear up?

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

3. Can you explain the relationship between insulin resistance and high calcium levels in easy-to-understand language?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole! I recently figured out that I have hyperparathyroidism (hypothyroid, but hyperPARAthyroid) because I kept having high calcium levels and ending up in the hospital with AFIB. I started searching everything I could about this condition and what could be contributing to it. Now I’m wondering if my continued insulin resistance and need for insulin despite being keto for several years might somehow be related. To my surprise, a search on hyperparathyroidism and insulin resistance brought up some interesting information on this very subject! Can you explain in everyday language what the connection might be between this condition and IR and if there is reason to have hope that this might play a part in my insulin resistance improving more now that I've had the bad gland removed? I'm only a couple of weeks out of surgery but other symptoms I was experiencing have already gotten much better! I'm just really hoping this will be yet another benefit and want to better understand how high calcium levels impact insulin resistance.

Thanks for your help!

Why did my voice change to sound like an old man since I started eating a ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole, You guys can count me as another person who has experienced vocal issues that have popped up since starting on the ketogenic diet. I started eating keto in July and by September I noticed my voice started sounding fuzzy like a very old man. You’ve briefly addressed this issue before stating that a common culprit is coffee consumption, but I don’t drink very much coffee and in fact a lot less of it since I switched to keto. I also don’t eat chocolate or peppermint. Any clue why I sound like the old guy in the Up movie?

Thanks for your help.

1. How do you eat a vegan keto diet and will it prevent the top chronic diseases from happening?

Hi Jimmy, Will and Carrie,

Thank you for this special vegan keto episode. My husband and I have adopted a traditional ketogenic approach and have seen improvements in our body composition. I have noticed greatly improved energy, mental performance, and psychological health. In fact, last night I played two hours of volleyball and had more energy than the much younger fitness coach on my team!

My mom is 67 years old, semi-retired, and is struggling with unplanned weight gain, muscle loss, low energy, a weak immune system, slow healing, brain fog, moodiness, and mental function issues that seem to be linked to elevated blood sugar levels. We've been talking about keto for about a year, but she is afraid to try it because she is a vegetarian (that includes no dairy except butter, but she will eat eggs). She thinks there won't be anything left for her to eat if she cuts carbs. She has been eating high-carb, low-fat, and low protein. To her, a can of black beans is enough protein for one day and a teaspoon or two butter is plenty of fat. She has been trying to get omega-3 fats from flaxseed and canola oil. She is excited about hearing what you have to share on this podcast and wants to know the answers to the following questions.

- How do you prepare quick and easy vegan keto recipes?
- How do you prevent hunger while eating vegan keto?
- Where do you get your fat intake from on vegan keto?
- What omega-3 sources of fat are there to consume?
- How much protein is appropriate on a vegan keto diet and how do you get it? Tofu?
- Will supplements be necessary to get all the vitamins in my vegan keto diet?
- Dementia, heart disease, and cancer prevention are my goals with going vegan keto? Will this diet help me reach these goals?

Thank you so much for your help answering these questions for my mom!

2. What are your thoughts on protein combining, getting complete proteins, and incorporating pea protein to get a better amino acid profile on a vegan keto approach?

Hi guys,

I’m a vegan keto dieter and would love to hear Dr. Carrie’s views on essential amino acids eating this way. Protein combining is a contentious issue in the vegan world and I’ve found through my own research tracking my macronutrients that vegan keto IS limited by lysine and to some extent methionine as we mostly cut out the legumes. I’d love to hear her views on the subject of protein combining, how to get complete proteins on a vegan keto diet, and incorporating things like pea protein to help achieve a full amino acid profile for people who can’t or don’t consume soy.

Thanks!

3. What are you responses to these questions from a practicing physician?

As a practicing physician, I’d love to have the answers to the following questions regarding a vegan keto nutritional approach:

- What fats do you eat?
- What carbs do you permit?
- Are there any whole grains?
- Any beans?
- Any fasting involved?
- Supplements you take?
- Do you monitor ketosis? How?
- What exercise do you recommend when doing vegan keto?
- How many days a month do you recommend eating vegan keto? Or is it constant?
- Do you ever go off vegan keto and return to a plant-based lower-fat diet to cycle out of ketosis?
- Are there any concerns about osteoporosis from acidosis?

Thanks for your answers,

4. How do you prevent nutrient deficiencies on a vegan keto diet? What impact would incorporating an occasional vegan keto day into my regular ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy, Dr. Cole, and Dr. Diulus,

How does someone eating a vegan keto diet get their Vitamin B12? I thought Vitamin B12 could only be found in animal-based foods. And what about other nutrients that only come from animals such as dietary cholesterol? If a vegan keto diet is a sustainable way of fueling the human body over the long-term, then does that mean you HAVE to take supplements in order to remain healthy? I’m sure your body can “get by” for a while, but at what cost later on...I’m very interested in what impact implementing vegan keto days into my regular ketogenic diet.

Thank you for your help,

5. Why do some people find it difficult to lose weight on a vegan keto diet as compared with a meat-based ketogenic nutrition plan?

Hey guys,

I'm on a vegan keto group on Facebook and I often read about people gaining weight instead of losing it while eating that way. Why does it seem more difficult for some people to lose weight while eating vegan keto than meat-eating keto dieters? Is there something in the animal-based foods that contributes to easier weight loss success that is lacking in a vegan keto diet? Thanks for helping me understand this better.

1. Is it an issue that I only have one well-formed and easy-to-pass bowel movement every other day since shifting my diet to keto?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Thanks so much for talking so openly about poop! When you said that all we need is two snakes a day, all I could think of was no way! After shifting my diet to keto, I noticed the amount of food I was consuming decreased with more nutrient dense foods satisfying me. My theory is my body was actually able to use most of the food I was consuming without much waste which explains why my bowel movements went down. I simply generate less waste now, right? My estimation is that I average a poop every other day but it is well formed and passes easily so it doesn’t appear I am constipated. Should I be worried that it is so infrequent and what should I alter in my diet if my bowel habits sound problematic?

3. Why have I been experiencing regular bouts of loose stools since I’ve shifted my diet over to a ketogenic approach?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been listening to your podcast since I began keto in June. Thank you for all the great information. In August, I began struggling with regular bouts of diarrhea on a daily basis. I can't remember the last solid stool that I had. I no longer track my macros since I'm at my goal weight. I typically have a Bulletproof coffee with MCT oil powder and butter in the morning and eat leftovers for lunch, an afternoon snack of a cheese stick or almond butter, and then dinner with meat and veggies. I've been playing around with my carbs, including adding back in healthy carbs like sweet potato and checking my blood ketones to confirm I'm always in ketosis. I drink lots of water and I'm good about getting in my electrolytes. I've even cut back on magnesium to see if that would help. It has not. My stomach isn't upset and overall I feel a lot better than I did before keto. Any clues on what I can do to decrease the diarrhea?

Thank you for your help!

4. What is causing my poop to be watery and yellow when I’m eating keto and extended fasting?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating keto with intermittent fasting since mid-April and have been slowly healing my gut from a lot of issues I was experiencing. But here is the issue: my poop is watery and yellowish in color (my liver levels were tested and it came back as optimal on the lab results). I especially see this yellowish loose stool when I fast for longer than 16 hours. My MCT oil consumption is 1 Tbs in my coffee and I did that without issues at the beginning of keto. It kicked in at the three- month mark. My food intake hasn’t changed much since going keto, but I have noticed that when I eat off plan even a little I get the runs hard and furious. One other issue that might be connected to this is I’m dealing with hair loss from thyroid issues as well as high estrogen levels. Can you help me figure this out?

Thanks so much for your podcast! God bless you guys.

5. What can I do to improve my Type 2 on the Bristol Stool chart to the more healthier Type 3 and 4?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thank you for all you do for the keto community. In the episode where you discussed the Bristol Stool chart, you commented that any good Bristol chart would include tips to fix each type of poop. I can’t find this information, so please post this in the show notes section of your Poopcast. I seem to constantly have Type 2 poop where it is sausage-shaped and lumpy and I’ve tried various tips to getting it back to normal, including adding salt, magnesium, extra water, and upping my fiber. But nothing seems to help other than doing an extended fast. Any other tips you can give me to help improve this to the more healthy stool?

Thanks for your help,

Stephanie

 

6. Is there anything wrong with never feeling constipated? And would only pooping once a week be a problem?

Hello you guys,

If you never feel constipated, is this something to worry about? And if you aren’t pooping on a daily basis and only going once a week, why would this be a problem?

Thanks,

7. Why have my bowels come to a screeching halt since I switched over to a ketogenic diet? What can I do to get my bowel moving again?

Hi Jimmy and The Poopmaster,

I have been doing keto for about a month and ever since I started eating this way it’s like my bowels have come to a screeching halt. I consume 50-60g total carbs with around 30 grams of fiber. I drink close to a gallon of water a day and supplement with magnesium and probiotics. Is this an issue I need to be concerned about? Any ideas on how to make my bowels start back up again?

Thanks,

Dayna

Here’s what Jimmy and Will talked about in Episode 90:

 

COMMENT FROM A LISTENER responding to a question from Episode 86:

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Just listened to the podcast where the guy was having diverticulitis now that he is Keto. I guarantee if he stops eating nuts other than nut flours it will stop. Nut particles get caught in the aging bowel and start pockets of infection. Nuts are terrible for diverticulitis.

Love the show and always listen in way over here in wild Western Australia! Quite a strong keto population here.

Keep on keeping on.

– Will eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet help me counteract my weak immunity and dairy sensitivity?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a recent Keto Talk listener who appreciates your expert analysis on the ketogenic lifestyle. I am new to trying keto and admittedly have been failing at sticking with it lately due to added stress from my job. I’m hoping your podcast will motivate me so I can finally fight through these challenges and become a happy, keto-adapted person. My question for you guys is about catching the common cold. Over the past year, I have had three colds which included an acute upper respiratory infection during the winter that then turned into a sinus infection which took two months to recover from. I have always had a sensitivity to dairy and have noticed a distinct correlation between dairy consumption and my lowered immunity to colds as well as other gastrointestinal symptoms. Doctors usually just dismiss my claims and usually just give me medications for dealing with my symptoms. So with all this background in mind, will a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach help me counteract my weak immunity and tolerate dairy again? I’m so tired of the runny noses.

Thanks for your help!

 

–STUDY: Low-Carbohydrate Diet Superior to Antipsychotic Medications

1. Will the steroid I have to take for my Polymyalgia Rheumatica make me store the fat I’m consuming on my ketogenic diet? Should I do extended fasts to deal with this?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been doing well on less than 20g carbs/day consumed in a single midday meal and working out vigorously with treadmill at an incline and six-mile bike rides. All was going well and I never felt the need to test for ketones. Unfortunately, I was suddenly diagnosed with a horrible inflammatory disorder called Polymyalgia Rheumatica and the only treatment for it is the steroid prednisone which causes an insulin response that can eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes. Sadly, I have to take this steroid for the time being and I’m concerned pairing it with my low-carb, high fat diet will lead to massive weight gain in the belly due to the extra fat since my body will have a more difficult time breaking down fat stores. I’ve only been on the prednisone for a few days, but I’m trying to deal with this now before it becomes a problem. Do you have any ideas about whether my concerns are justified or not? Should I try doing longer than 24 hour fasts to help? Looking forward to your guidance.

2. Will a ketogenic diet help reduce the excessive plaque formation on my teeth?

Hey guys,

I recently started the ketogenic diet and I am doing well so far. I don’t think I’m fat-adapted yet but I know it will come. My question for you guys is about dental health. I have always had to have my teeth thoroughly and professionally cleaned every three months to deal with excessive plaque formation. I am wondering if eating keto will enable me to see a reduction in plaque formation on my teeth. Thanks in advance.

3. Are there any concerns about someone in an advanced age starting a ketogenic diet for health?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently spent two weeks with my mom who is a stubborn 76 year old Type 2 diabetic and she is determined to eat sweets now and then because she just “has to have them.” Sadly, she covers these sugary dalliances with insulin. She’s lost 15 pounds this year from simply cutting calories, but she’s still eating things like Saltines every single night. While her A1c has gone down, it’s still at 8.0. I made her listen to the Keto Clarity audiobook on a long car ride and we got through the first 10 chapters with her hanging on every word. Thanks to your book, Jimmy, she wanted to try to make a change in her diet for the first time ever. It is VERY unusual for her to be interested in anything new, so needless to say I was excited.

My question for you guys is about her advanced age. Does she need to be more careful than a younger person incorporating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic approach into her healthy lifestyle? I would hate to be the person who is recommending all of these improvements for her only to learn that it may negatively impact her health. She sees her doctor regularly, but I don’t know whether he is familiar with the keto way of eating for health improvements. She is also on blood pressure medication and a statin for high cholesterol! Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom about someone in their late 70s who may JUST BE STARTING down this path!

– Do frozen vegetables still contain a sugar water bath that would make them problematic for people eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been seeing a kinesiologist who supports eating keto. But he told me I needed to stay away from consuming frozen vegetables since he learned many years ago that they include a sugar water bath to preserve their color and taste. He said it’s not required to be listed in the ingredients and wasn’t sure if this practice was still going on. Is this something I need to be concerned about that could sabotage my ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I've been listening to Keto Talk for a few months now and have a question for you guys to address. I’ve been doing keto since July and I noticed I constantly experienced diarrhea and severe anxiety. I chalked these symptoms up to symptoms of the “keto flu” but it’s persisting even to this day. The only solution to these issues was to add back in carbs in the form of about 50g of sweet potato around my six workouts a week as a fitness competitor. Within two days of doing this, my diarrhea submitted and within a week my anxiety symptoms disappeared. Also, my hair was falling out during my time eating keto and has continued to fall out since I stopped. I loved the focus and appetite suppression that this way of eating gave me, but I can’t handle the anxiety, diarrhea, and hair loss. Do you have any idea why I’m experiencing these things while eating a ketogenic diet? When I’ve checked online, I’ve noticed other people have experienced these things too.

Thanks for you help,

Chet

1. Is a ketogenic diet an appropriate nutritional approach for someone with hepatitis B?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been listening to your podcast for three months and am excited to learn about all the great benefits of a ketogenic diet. I read a book from a doctor in Japan that suggests that people with chronic liver dysfunction should avoid a ketogenic diet because of the high-fat content. I have hepatitis B and have been taking enticavir to control the disease for the past four years. My interest in going keto is to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease which runs in my family. My question for you guys is this: Is a ketogenic nutritional approach appropriate to do for someone with hepatitis B? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

2. Why do I lose more weight when I add in carbohydrates to my ketogenic diet than if I adhered strictly to it?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating low-carb, high-fat and have noticed that when I eat more carbs such as sweet potatoes, wine, fruit, etc. that I actually lose MORE weight than when I strictly adhere to my keto plan. I don't measure my ketones and a scale and tape measure are all I own to track my progress. I don't count my carb intake, but I try to only eat carbs from dairy and vegetables on most days. So why is that when I eat extra carbs in my diet it leads to weight loss? I’m a 6’ tall female and have been fairly healthy my entire life. I workout 4-6 times a week doing running and body weight exercises. Is this something you’ve seen with others who add back in clean carbohydrates to their diet?

3. How can I tailor my ketogenic approach to properly deal with reactive hypoglycemia?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thank you for Keto Talk as it has been an amazing source of information and guidance on my keto journey. I used to deal with several hypoglycemia when I ate high-carb, low-fat and I was hoping going ketogenic this year would help with this. While the hypoglycemic episodes have become less frequent, it’s still an issue for me and preventing me from enjoying the freedom from food bondage that seemingly everyone else is experiencing. This issue is so bad I can’t even intermittent fast as I can only go a few hours between meals without feeling the effects of the reactive hypoglycemia kick in. What’s amazing is I don’t usually feel hungry when this happens, but I do get dizzy, light-headed, nauseous, and irritable.

In my research into this, I discovered the cause of the reactive hypoglycemia is low neurotransmitters (specifically GABA, dopamine, epinephrine and glutamate). I am working with a doctor to fix these underlying issues, but is there anything else I can do to my ketogenic approach to deal with the reactive hypoglycemia? I’m a 32-year old female who doesn’t use any sweeteners and dealing with low thyroid taking naturethroid and amenorrhea for the past two years. This has been a huge roadblock for me.

Thanks for your help,

Annie

Hi Jimmy & Will,

I love the show and all the functional medicine insights that Dr. Will brings...I never miss an episode! I've been doing low-carb (not keto) for about a year and have noticed I get woozy after eating my evening meals that makes me very tired, unable to concentrate, and feel like I have to lie down lest I fall. My doctor says it’s reactive hypoglycemia and I’ve tried eating sugar to deal with it when it happens and it helps for a while but isn’t the solution to eliminating it. My doctor says I should eat more protein and eat every three hours to prevent this. When I added in more protein it acted very similarly to the sugar not giving me full relief. The best solution I’ve found is when I go to sleep. As for eating every three hours, I’m just not hungry enough to do that. Any insights you guys can share about this? Thanks so much and keep up the good work with the podcast.

– Why do I still crave ice cream at night after eating keto or following an extended fast? What can I do to deal with this specific craving?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm a big believer in both keto and fasting but I cannot stop craving ice cream after a 3+ day fast and a ketogenic meal. It only seems to happen at night and it takes me ages to get back into ketosis again after I give in to the temptation. I’ve tried everything to deal with this, including using exogenous ketones. But to no avail. I’ve already lost 42 pounds with extended fasting and a ketogenic diet and I feel trapped by these ice cream cravings. I lift heavy weights and do extensive cardio…could this hard exercise routine cause me to crave? Please help!

1. Does eating a ketogenic diet lead to abdomen and back pain as a result of high acidic urine production? Why is this happening?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Will,

Love your show! I have been experiencing a dull ache regularly in my mid to lower abdomen and back since I started keto over a year ago. Last week it started to get worse and I went to the ER to get some bloodwork, have x-rays taken, and CT scan (with contrast)—everything came back normal. The doctor’s best guess was that I have a stomach bug. This was based on deductive reasoning, which I did not buy. Today I researched this further and found this seems to be common with keto due to an acidic urine issue. Some of the remedies suggested include bicarbonate soda with Milk of Magnesia to ease the load on the kidneys. So my question for you guys is this: Do you see this in your ketogenic patients and how do you help them with it? Why is this happening?

Thanks,

Ed

2. How do I manage the carbohydrate cravings that come with bipolar disease do I can reduce my carbohydrate intake to ketogenic levels?

Hey guys,

I have a question for you regarding bipolar. I have it and the predictable carb cravings that go along with the disease. The theory is bipolar people crave carbs to stabilize their mood. I am currently under medicating for my bipolar and I’d love to find a more natural way to deal with this. I just started keto and dropped my carbohydrate intake from 180g to 90g daily. What can I do to get my daily carbohydrate intake to below 50g without the intense cravings that I’m experiencing from my disease?

In Peace,

Keith

3. How do you determine the right amount of calories to consume while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I often hear people in the ketogenic community including you guys state to make sure you "eat enough calories.” But what does that mean? I'm a 50-year old women who engages in light exercise like walking, work a desk job and sit from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and I have NO idea how many calories to eat. Some say 1,200 while others say 2,000 which I think is pretty high. I'm so confused and frustrated because I still have at least 45 pounds to lose. While I'm not planning on counting calories, I'd like a general guideline as to what is right for me. Thanks for all your info.

– What is the idea poop for someone eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating keto for about 8 weeks and reading everything I can find to educate myself on the low-carb, high-fat way of living. One subject I see the widest array of information on is what kind of stools you should have on keto. What is ideal when it comes to poop? Sinkers, floaters, or what? Please help!

My knee pain is gone, my blood work has improved, I can think more clearly and more. I hope some of my friends actually get on-board so they can reap benefits for themselves. I do tell them that what works for them may be different from what works for me.

After suffering with T2 diabetes for over 16 years following my doctor's pharmaceutical approach and completely wrong nutritional advice, I did my own research and discovered keto. I've now reversed diabetes, lost over 65 pounds and gotten off ALL my prescription meds! I'm 59 years old and in better health and am more fit than I've been in decades.

– Why am I experiencing diverticulitis since adopting a ketogenic lifestyle? What can I do to best manage this while remaining keto?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I started eating low-carb keto in April this year as a way to lose weight. I have struggled staying in ketosis, but have lost over 20 pounds so far. But my biggest problem is I’ve been having bouts of diverticulitis since making this dietary change forcing me to take Metamucil to raise my fiber intake. My doctor is recommending that I discontinue the ketogenic approach even though he was the one that encouraged me to pursue it in the first place. My C-Reactive Protein is elevated and I am now getting concerned. I’ve done my homework on a ketogenic diet reading all the books and websites and am fully convinced it’s the way to go. I hold a PhD in Biomedical Science from a US medical school and even though all I have read runs counter to what I learned in graduate school, I am fully converted and convinced of keto. Have you run into this problem before? If so, how should I proceed?

1. What impact on ketosis will there be with the complete removal of the thyroid?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been eating keto since May 2016 and I feel great! I regularly check my blood ketones and am usually in the 0.7-2.0 range. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's in 2006 and have been on 100 mcg Synthroid ever since. My thyroid levels were all in range last June but my thyroid kept getting larger. During the summer, my doctor found a nodule that ended up showing Hurthle cells. This concerned my doctor who said it’s a cancer risk and he recommended a total thyroidectomy. My surgery is schedule for next week and I’m wondering what impact this will have on my pursuit of nutritional ketosis. Will this make it more difficult for me to stay in ketosis if I no longer have a thyroid? I just want to know what I’m getting myself into so I can respond accordingly after the surgery.

Love your show and keep it up!

2. Did a ketogenic diet cause a rise in SHBG and a decrease in testosterone levels? What can I do to my keto approach to remedy this?

Hey guys,

I’m a big fan of Keto Talk and I’ve been eating this way for about a year with great results for the most part. But I noticed a couple of months after starting a ketogenic diet, my sex hormone binding globulin rose from 50 to 70 and my testosterone tanked. I’ve since run these tests several more times and they all confirm the same thing. From what I’ve read, this means my body’s ability to use any available testosterone has been hampered and many sites online blame a low-carb diet as the culprit. I need you to talk me off the ledge on this and help me figure out what is going on.

Thanks,

Zach

3. Does eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet make the urine pH more acidic? If so, should I be worried about this at all?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Will,

Yesterday, I went to see my General Practitioner to review my latest bloodwork. She knows I’ve been eating a ketogenic diet for the past nine months and was nothing but pleased with all my markers—except for one. My urine pH was 5.5 and she noted that indicates my body is a bit acidic. She said I shouldn’t worry about this since all the other numbers are perfectly fine, but she made the following statement that stopped me in my tracks: “I am not sure, but maybe it’s the ketones you are excreting that makes your urine more acidic.” What?! Is it true that being in ketosis makes your urine acidic? Should I be worried at all about this or is this of no concern at all.

Thank you for your help!

Miguel

 

KETO TALK MAILBOX

– If the body prefers to be fueled by ketones, then why does it preferentially burn glucose over fat when both are present?

Hello you guys,

I am currently reading Keto Clarity and the biggest question I'm having about keto is this: If my body truly prefers being in a state of nutritional ketosis and runs more optimally on ketones than on glucose, then why does my body choose to preferentially choose burning sugar over fat if both are present? I have a fear that years down the line, this whole keto diet will negatively impact my health. Is that fear justified?

Thank you,

Judy

Hey, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I listened to your discussion in Episode 81 of Keto Talk about the difficulty in getting life insurance and I wanted to let you know that there are actually carriers that will issue up to $1 million policies up to the best rating class without having to go through any blood/urine profile or physical exam. If they are healthy and between the ages of 18-54 and have not been declined or rated from a life insurance carrier before, this option is available. It could be a good fit for someone that thinks their blood levels may be "abnormal" from the insurance company perspective and want to avoid doing labs. Just an FYI for people to talk to their insurance broker about this.

Thanks,

Justin

– Why am I having painful leg cramps while on keto outside of electrolyte imbalance? How do you resolve them without supplementation?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I love this podcast, been listening since Day 1. I’ve been eating low-carb for several years and about a year and a half ago I went full-on keto. I love this way of eating and have seen a lot of benefits from it. I regularly see average ketones of 1.7 mmol/L. However, there is one drawback I experience at least once a week and upwards of four times a week. It’s the dreaded leg cramps. They are more common at night, often when I’m sleeping, but I’ve experienced them pretty much anytime throughout the day. I believe the ketogenic lifestyle truly is the ideal way to eat, but I shouldn’t be having this major and often quite painful side effect, right? I’ve heard you discuss the issue of muscle cramps in the past and how they’re typically due to dehydration and/or electrolyte depletion or imbalance. The quandary I now have is how can I really consider this ketogenic diet to be “ideal” if it leaves me with this leg cramp issue that I seemingly have to solve with supplementation. Obviously, if this way of eating was being implemented by our ancestors and it was causing them this problem, they wouldn’t have been able to solve it with supplements. I don’t have any major health issues and am not metabolically broken. But this nagging problem with my ketogenic diet makes me wonder how it can truly be the perfect way to eat? Any ideas why my electrolytes may be out-of-whack and leading to leg cramps? Or could the cramps possibly be due to something else I’m not aware of? I appreciate your help. Keep up the good work!

1. Why am I experiencing a sudden dip in my energy levels while eating ketogenic when energy has been great?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been following the ketogenic diet for nearly a year at the age of 75 and have experienced great energy eating grass-fed meats, fresh farm eggs, and organic vegetables. But over the past month I’ve noticed my energy has taken a dive and I thought it might be the heat of the summer. But my blood pressure also dropped so low (70/42) that I had a tough time just standing up. My doctor had me wear a heart halter and discovered I have tachycardia. Of course, now I have to see a cardiologist and I’m sure he’s gonna flip out about my numbers eating keto: Total cholesterol 294, LDL-C 198, HDL-C 85, triglycerides 55, LDL-P 2100, small LDL-P 386, VLDL 11, fasting blood glucose 90, Vitamin D 97.0, C-Reactive Protein 1.1

Do you have any suggestions for me?

2. Is there concern about a low Vitamin C intake while eating a restricted ketogenic diet like the one outlined in The Plant Paradox?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

A friend of mine read the book The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry and is following his dietary advice. After reviewing their recommendations (essentially no legumes, no grains, low/no fruit, no vegetables that contain seeds on the inside like cucumbers, squash, etc) it seems that she would easily fall into the ketogenic diet recommendations. She recently met with her naturopath who was leery of keto because of a supposedly low vitamin C intake. Do you have any insight into this and how a ketogenic dieter would get Vitamin C? I usually follow a Paleo/keto diet but have never considered micronutrient deficiencies as a concern because I am eating so much plant matter. Thank you in advance!

3. How do I avoid the onslaught of sugar and crappy carbage while I am in the hospital? Will they honor my request to keep the sugar and carbs out of my diet?

Hey guys,

What is a patient who eats keto supposed to do when they are in the hospital? I need to have aortic heart valve and stem replacement surgery someday and I worry about what this hospital stay will do to me. I’m a severely insulin resistant Type 2 diabetic who had an A1c of 10.4 prior to going on a ketogenic diet. Three months after going keto, that number dropped to 5.6. I’m keto for life now, but this hospital stay will be a challenge to avoid the crappy carbage they like to serve as well as the sugar-filled goop they put in the feeding tubes. I already know my healing won’t happen properly with high blood sugar and insulin levels and the hospital will simply medicate and inject me with insulin to deal with it. If I asked my hospital to avoid doing this, will they follow my wishes? I suppose I could just fast the entire time I am in the hospital, but do you have any suggestions about this? Thanks so much for helping me with this.

– Does a ketogenic diet help or hurt with anxiety issues?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I just found and subscribed to Keto Talk—thank you for the great information! I’m thinking seriously about getting into the keto thing for myself, but I am doing my homework first. I am a 61-year-old carb addicted female who needs to lose at least 50 pounds. I was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic and I want to get myself back to feeling happy and well again. My question for you guys revolves around how keto helps with anxiety issues. Is there any medical, scientific, or other data with ketogenic diets and anxiety? Or does it make anxiety worse (ugh…I hope not)?

Thank you again!

– Does a high-fat diet lead to an increase in inflammation levels that I should be concerned about?

Hey guys!

I feel like I’ve had an increase in inflammation ever since I started on the keto diet in June 2017. I look more fat every day and I read that a high-fat diet increases endotoxins and increases gut permeability as well which leads to histamine production. But it’s the rise in one type of bacteria that produces an inflammation response that has me most concerned about a ketogenic diet. Should I be? Why or why not? Thanks in advance for your help with my question.

1. Why am I experiencing prolonged diarrhea since adopting a ketogenic diet? Is there a way to remedy this?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Is there a keto-friendly remedy for diarrhea? I don't know if it's stress-related or bacterial, but I’ve had it for about a month which forced me to become carbolitic again! I’m eating rice, bread, oatmeal and as you can probably guess I'm hungry most of the time now. I throw in some fatty protein, too, but practically nothing green. Roughage seems to irritate my sensitive intestinal tract. But this diarrhea lasted for five weeks while eating keto and I was hoping it would just work itself out. As far as I know I’m not sick with a stomach bug or anything, but my tummy feels uncomfortable as the non-carby food is being digested. I’ve been popping probiotics like candy every single day, so I don’t know what could be going on. Please help.

2. Why am I having constant hunger while eating a ketogenic diet with adequate calories and dietary fat?

Hey guys, love your podcast! I'm an ER doc and 90% of what I see in the ER is 100 percent preventable through nutrition and other lifestyle modifications. My whole ER department is on the fasting bandwagon and many are LCHF! I’ve been eating this way for five years and incorporate regular periods of intermittent fasting of 16-20 daily. I even ran in the Boston marathon with just water. So surely I’m fat-adapted. I recently switched over to keto for cancer and dementia prevention but now I have a problem—I’m CONSTANTLY hungry. I consume well over my usual 2500 calories which includes 200g healthy fats. I’m doing yoga and keep my net carbs under 20g daily. I’m 36 years old and have a normal BMI. But this hunger is excruciating and nothing seems to satisfy it. Will this eventually normalize? What’s odd is when I simply ate low-carb, high-fat that wasn’t ketogenic, I never felt this kind of hunger. Weird. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Emmy

3. How does an older person who requires more protein in their diet to prevent muscle loss eat a ketogenic diet that moderates protein?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a sedentary 70-year old man and I’ve read that older people need to be eating more protein (along with strength training) in order to counter any age-related muscle loss. But since going keto requires a more moderate protein intake, how can these be done?

Thanks for all your good work.

- Can you explain the process of how fat cells work and what exactly a ketogenic diet does to improve sick ones?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will Cole,

I love Keto Talk and am grateful for all that you do! I was wondering if you guys could explain how fat cells work. For example, when someone gains weight are they getting new fat cells or are the existing ones just getting bigger? Also, I've heard you talk about sick fat cells that get better when people adopt a ketogenic diet, but can you go into more detail about how exactly that works? And finally, if someone's fat cells are all healthy, will they then be at their optimal weight or will other factors still be at play?

Thanks again for all of your awesome work,

Michele

– Why did I experience soft tissue increase in my armpits once I adopted a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been listening to Keto Talk and eating keto for the past 6 months and have lost 22 pounds so far. My blood work looks great other than my DO adding progesterone and estrogen since I am starting menopause. A strange thing happened when I started keto, though, that I’d like your thoughts about. I have noticed a large soft tissue increase in one armpit and a small one in the other. A mammogram shows just added tissue and no cancer. So, will this go away as I continue to lose weight? I am at 36% body fat so I have a ways to go, but I want to wear a sleeveless shirt again and don’t want to have surgery for this. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.

God bless!

1. Did the high-fat intake on my ketogenic diet lead to the development of gallstones?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Love your show and I wanted to get your take on something that happened to me recently. I was admitted to the ER for severe pain in my abdomen and it was gallstones. They pushed hard for me to have surgery, but I chose not to since there was no infection. I’m 56, 6 feet tall, and 169 pounds while in pretty fit shape. I’ve been eating keto with periods of intermittent fasting along with Bulletproof Coffee for the past three years. Is it possible these gallstones are a result of the saturated fat and cholesterol I’m consuming? If so, then how can I return to my beloved Bulletproof Coffee, coconut oil on my veggies, grass-fed meats, and other high-quality fats?

I was really shocked that this happened as I felt I had at last found the diet that was right for me. Many thanks for any insights you might have about why this happened.

2. Should I be concerned about my “grossly lipemic” blood work that resulted from eating ketogenic with intermittent fasting?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating 70/25/5 keto for nearly a year with great success so far losing 30 pounds. I’m an African American, 6'1", 64 years old, and currently 195 pounds with approximately 20% body fat. I’ve also added in intermittent fasting of 16/8 on most days. I recently had blood work that showed I am "grossly lipemic.” As a result of this, there was no cholesterol recorded. EVERYTHING else was good. So, should I be concerned?

Thanks, and please keep up the great work. P.S. I have converted my wife to keto from Weight Watchers. Big win!

3. Since going keto, why am I have dizzy spells with normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels?

Hey guys,

I love your podcast and am working my way through your backlist. I’m 62 and have been eating ketogenic since May. I’ve lost over 40 pounds with about 10-20 more pounds to go. I’m eating low-carb, high-fat and have noticed my blood glucose has come down significantly since eating this way along with an average blood ketone level of 1.6. I was taking blood pressure medication prior to going keto and I’ve come off of it now that BP has normalized with the diet. I’ve noticed that sometimes I get dizzy while standing or doing light work. When I’ve tested my blood pressure and blood glucose after this has happened, they were normal at 120/83 and 82 respectively. I take a potassium and a magnesium pill every day along with L-Thyroxine for my thyroid and 3 Lyrica per day for nerve pain in my foot.

Do you have any idea what may be causing these dizzy spells? Other than this, I feel fine and am having no problem staying on my diet. Thank you very much for your help!

– Why does eating keto and fasting lead to offensive, bad breath and what can you do about it?

Dear Mr. Moore and Dr. Cole,

I've been reading The Complete Guide to Fasting that I got from my local library as I have been interested in this subject to manage my rheumatoid arthritis. My question is about keto breath that tends to happen when your body burns ketones. Could you please address this issue and what to do about it? I don't like the thought of having offensive, bad breath if I decide to fast as an adjunct to eating keto.

Thanks in advance for your help.

– Why would my blood glucose levels go extremely high after beginning on a well-formulated ketogenic diet? Is it possible keto actually caused this to happen?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I’m having a reaction to the keto diet that I think you may find interesting and can chime in with a few thoughts for me about it. Although I am experiencing quite a few benefits eating this way, it appears the ketogenic approach just isn’t working for my blood glucose levels. I've been eating keto for 5 weeks averaging around 26g total carbs each day, 70g protein, and 220g fat. This is tracked closely by a dietitian and my blood ketones which are measured by a finger prick are consistently above .5 mmol and usually averages around 1. However, my fasting blood glucose hovers around 200 and seems to be steadily increasing.

Here's the thing: I’m not diabetic. My fasting blood glucose before keto was 93 and my A1c was 5.5. Pre-keto, while I was eating just low carb with about 70-100g/day of carbohydrates, my insulin levels were low at 1.2. It's possible that going keto has exposed an underlying problem, but it seems to me that it's also possible that keto caused the problem I’m now having with my blood sugar levels and that the diet just doesn't work for me. I'm really trying to figure out which one of these it is.

Any assistance you can give about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for this podcast and keep up the great work!

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am having with my morning fasted blood sugar readings in the 120s and 130s and sometimes as high as in the 180s. Two weeks ago, I was put on 1500mg of Metformin and a ketogenic diet with regular periods of fasting for 18 hours a day. So far I’ve lost 14 pounds, but this blood sugar thing is frustrating for me. I hope you have some answers for me.

Thank you,

From a very stressed out Tony

1. Why am I experiencing an increased amount of gas since adopting a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating ketogenic for about three months and while I feel pretty good overall, I have encountered a few issues that seem to be sticking around. I have been experiencing dry skin, which is very unusual in the middle of a humid summer in upstate New York. I have also been having some digestive issues that show up as gas. I do eat very healthy with high quality fats, including grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs, unrefined coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, avocados, coconut milk, coconut butter, and some nuts and seeds. But I know I am experiencing more gas than I should and I'm not sure what may be causing this. I don't eat any grains, dairy, or legumes, but something is disturbing my digestion in the worst way. Also, I’ve noticed my acne has been consistently been pretty bad as well since going keto. I would greatly appreciate any insights you can give me into these issues. Thanks for your help!

2. What can I do about the unrelenting constipation I am feeling while on a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I’ve been eating low-carb, then keto going on five years now and I love it. But biggest side effect that I’ve experienced is unrelenting constipation. When I ate the SAD diet, I was regular everyday. But as soon as I go low-carb/keto, it's a big problem. I consume avocados, greens, and/or broccoli everyday. Additionally, I eat up to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and it doesn't seem to help at all. A famous ketogenic doctor told me to take milk of magnesia and I tried up to 3-4 teaspoons at night and still not regular. Yes, I definitely go more often when I take that, but I don’t want to have to take a whole bottle every single week. I drink plenty of water with up to 3 teaspoons of sea salt in it. I also supplement with magnesium malate since the citrate version creates a more laxative effect. So it doesn’t appear that I'm dehydrated or lacking electrolytes. The only thing I can think of that it could possibly be is stress. I'm not overly stressed but do have my moments. Please help me figure out how to get this constipation under control while eating keto.

Thank you,

3. What is it about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet that improves skin health so much?

Dear Jimmy & Dr. Will,

First of all, welcome to Dr. Will who I think brings a fresh new perspective that I like to Keto Talk. On his first episode, Will mentioned as an aside that eating keto can be very good for the skin. This resonated with me because I have seen that happening in my own ketogenic journey. I used to experience super dry skin prior to eating keto using expensive moisturizers and even those didn’t help me. After 3-4 months of eating keto, I noticed my skin was super moist without any moisturizers…even when I am getting lots of sun at the beach. Amazing! So my question for you guys is this: Why is a ketogenic diet so beneficial for the skin?

Thank you for answering my question,

Miguel

- Why am I never feeling any hunger on keto? What’s the mechanism going on inside that body that it keeping me so satiated all the time.

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been listening to your podcasts for many years, Jimmy, but I have never heard the answer to the following question—Why do I never feel any hunger while eating keto? I will feel a little dizzy sometimes and even have difficulty thinking from time to time, but never any hunger. I am reading your book Keto Clarity to learn more of the nuances of nutritional ketosis and to help me understand what is going on in my body better. This lack of hunger thing is driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

Keep up the good work. You are making a difference in this world and for that, I thank you.

– 'I have a way to beat this thing.'

– How does someone eating a ketogenic diet with elevated LDL-C and total cholesterol get good life insurance? Is there a company that looks at the relevant numbers?

Hey guys,

I’ve enjoyed listening to you and your new co-host Dr. Cole on Keto Talk the past couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more from you two! I have a quick question for you guys to address that I think impacts a lot of us Ketonians: Is there a life insurance company that understands the new way to look at lipid panels and related lab markers that give more credence to things like HDL, triglycerides, hsCRP, lower small LDL-P, lower ApoB, and more? It seems most of these companies prevent an otherwise healthy person from obtaining proper levels of life insurance unless their LDL-C and total cholesterol are in line with conventional thinking which we know is an incomplete picture. Thanks for addressing this important topic!

1. Can the fat you eat on a ketogenic diet make hot flashes and swelling worse just like carbs do?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’m a regular listener to Keto Talk and love what you are doing here. My question for you guys is about whether the fat I’m eating on my ketogenic diet is making my hot flashes worse and my fingers swell. I’m 57 years old, weigh 130 pounds, and am addicted to sugar. But when I replace sugar with fat, all of these things seem to happen in my health. Is this normal? Maybe I need to cut my fat and red meat consumption and eat more vegetables. Do you guys think this is a good idea?

Thanks so much,

Rainny

If you're going to fast, begin with a ketogenic diet because keto will cause you to be satiated and fasting will happen naturally”  – Jimmy Moore
2. Is eating more vegetables on my ketogenic diet the answer to my adrenal fatigue that seems to be halting my weight loss progress?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been on a ketogenic lifestyle since May and have not lost a single pound. I keep my carbs below 20g and went to see a ketogenic-friendly physician since I thought I was perhaps eating too much fat. In doing more research into what I might be dealing with, I suspected adrenal fatigue that has led to exhaustion and lab tests have confirmed this to be true. My keto doctor requires me to eat a lot more vegetables in my diet, but now I’m hungry again despite showing 1.0 mmol in my blood ketones. I’m a bit frustrated right now about what’s going on with me because I should be losing weight, right? Thanks for helping to point me in the right direction.

3. What natural pain remedies can be used by Ketonians who would rather not take medications?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been experiencing an increase in pain in my shoulders, elbows, and knees since I went keto two months ago. I’m a 62-year old male who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism four years ago by an allopathic doctor and prescribed Synthroid. I never liked the side effects of that medication, so I switched over to iodine supplements to go more natural in my treatment of this. Keto has given me great energy, no more food cravings, and has zapped out my hunger allowing me to intermittent fast for 16 hours daily. I lost 45 pounds on a traditional diet before going ketogenic and have lost another 30 pounds in the two months I’ve been keto. My goal is another 100 pounds, but I need something natural to give me pain relief while I’m on this journey.

Shalom,

George

– Is it normal to be sick of the dietary fat you consume on a ketogenic diet by day four of eating this way?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if it is normal to get sick of eating dietary fat after three days of eating keto. I absolutely love it for the first three days eating high-fat foods, but then something happens by day four when I can’t even think of eating another ketogenic meal. Is this normal and will I get over this? I really want to do this diet because of all of the health benefits and maybe lose a few pounds. But I need to know if I just need to push through the feeling I’m getting and get to the point where I will enjoy keto meals on a regular basis.

Thank you for your help,

– Why are blood glucose and weight elevated in a Type 2 diabetic despite eating ketogenic and taking high-dose Metformin?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I love your podcast - it's the perfect mix of nerdy science in an easy-to-understand format and I’m excited about the addition of Dr. Will Cole who maybe can help me understand something that’s happening to me right now. I started keto in October last year and I am a Type 2 diabetic who let my diabetes and weight become out of control due to uncontrolled stress the two previous years. With the exception of a few vacations where I've cheated, I've been strictly keto otherwise eating less than 20g of carbs a day. I feel great eating this way, but I’m very slowly losing weight and my blood glucose numbers just aren't normalizing—they’re averaging 200-225 in fasted readings even with taking 1500mg of extended release Metformin. I’m determined to get my diabetes under control without insulin and I’m under the care of a ketogenic-friendly physician who says it takes patience for the blood sugar levels to come down. I'm sure it does, but I'm hoping maybe you guys can explain why it takes so long for blood sugar and weight to come down as a Type 2 diabetic when it seems like I’m not getting any results yet.

Thank you for your help!

1. Would doing a protein sparing modified fast that is low-carb, but also very low in fat and calories bring more effective ketosis than a traditional keto diet?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently purchased Keto Clarity and read it with a vengeance. Thank you so much for your insights, experience and expertise included in that book, Jimmy. I now feel like I have a great grasp on nutritional ketosis and how it can benefit the body. I've recently been through a trying period with my health and I ended up losing 50 pounds very rapidly due to not eating and malnutrition followed by gaining back 90 pounds when I was "better" again. I recently visited an endocrinologist to help me lose about half my body weight and I was excited when I left the appointment because she told me that I would be on a ketogenic diet! A friend suggested your book, so I purchased it and read it right away. However, after meeting with the dietitian through her office, I found out that I was put on what’s called a protein sparing modified fast. The plan is very limiting allowing only about 600 calories a day. It is also very low in fat and only includes 11 ounces of protein daily.

So, after much thought and my sad attempt at researching this online, I thought I would contact you to ask this important question: Does limiting the amount of food you eat on a plan like this equal what a bariatric surgery patient would consume put the body into a more effective state of ketosis than following a more traditional ketogenic diet as described in your book?

I truly appreciate any thoughts you may have on this.

Sincerely,

Daniella

2. Is it possible that eating the higher amounts of protein required by the GAPS diet is causing me to plateau and even gain weight?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I recently began working with a nutritional therapy practitioner and have been practicing the GAPS diet for about a week now to begin healing my gut and digestive system as well as to detoxify. Before this diet, I was following a ketogenic approach along with intermittent fasting for 16:8 naturally and then practicing 42-hour fasts three times a week and losing weight fairly easily. Now my weight has gone up some and plateaued. My NTP has asked me to stop fasting since it might deprive my body of the nutrients it needs to heal.

At the first stage of the elimination portion of the GAPS diet, you eat animal meat boiled in bone broth with specifically approved vegetables like squash, broccoli, onion or cauliflower that are also boiled in bone broth. I am becoming convinced my plateau has to do with the higher amount of protein in this approach. I am only able to add animal fat to the stews and soups that are GAPS-approved and realize it's not the larger amount of fat I was eating on keto. So it seems I’m now eating a high-protein, moderate fat, low-carb diet. Do you have any insight whether or not it’s the protein that is stalling my weight loss and even gaining weight again?

Appreciate you guys,

Ashley

3. Is it possible the ketogenic diet could be masking the symptoms of perimenopause? Is that why I’m not losing weight? What can be done to remedy this?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Can eating a ketogentic diet mask the symptoms of perimenopause? I have been eating a ketogenic diet for over a year after starting my nutritional health journey with a primal/Paleo diet. The pounds on the scale simply are not moving. My doctor had said according to my health markers that there is nothing wrong with my metabolism. My thyroid and adrenals were good and my A1C is 5.0 showing my blood sugar to be well-controlled. According to my doctor, my sex hormone levels indicate I am still fertile at the age of 46. When I test blood ketones, I am .5 or higher and even seeing as high as 2.2 mmol. Prior to eating clean, my cycles were becoming irregular, but after 2 1/2 years of eating well my cycles are now back on track. I am having cyclical symptoms of fatigue, moodiness, and joint pain that is not in correlation with my cycle. It's seems to be happening every 3-4 months and I am no long losing inches while gaining scale weight. Could these symptoms be perimenopausal even with a regular cycle? I am frustrated I'm not losing weight, but am grateful my health seems to be right on track.

Thank you for all you do for the keto community. And thank you for answering my question.

- Can my 11-year old granddaughter eat keto as long as she gets enough protein in her diet? How can we help eliminate her carbohydrate cravings?

Hey guys,

My granddaughter is a healthy 11-year old who is a bone fide carb junkie. She simply cannot resist eating carbage of all kinds. Both of her parents have been keto since March and I wonder if my granddaughter could eat this way as well so long as she gets enough protein. I’m a registered nurse and it seems to be safe for her to do to help get her extra weight under control. My real concern is with her carbohydrate cravings and whether they will turn into an eating disorder. We’ve already caught her hiding candy and cookies so she can eat them later and then she doesn’t eat the real food she is served at meal times. Please help advise me because I want to help my granddaughter ward off future health problems now.

Thank you for your assistance.

– Could bioidentical hormone therapy prevent weight loss for people who are eating a ketogenic diet?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of Keto Talk and want to welcome Dr. Will Cole to the show. Since he’s got a lot of patient experience regarding hormonal issues, maybe Dr. Cole can help me understand why I’m not as successful at losing weight on my ketogenic diet as I had hoped to be. I am currently taking bioidentical hormones and wonder if that could be part of my struggle with weight loss. I did Atkins four years ago and it worked fine for me then. But it’s so much harder for me this time around. Can you guys help me understand whether these hormones I am taking are sabotaging my efforts?

 

Thanks for your response.

1. Can you diagnose a low thyroid function on a TSH number alone? How will keto help to fix the issues that concern my doctor?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of all your books and podcasts, Jimmy, and I've been a Keto Talk listener since the very beginning. I’m excited to hear what Dr. Cole has to add to an already amazing show. I went to see a new doctor last week for a physical and she has all her new patients do some bloodwork. When the results came in (see them below), her office called me to inform me that my total cholesterol and LDL-C are way too high (230 and 153 respectively). I asked why these numbers mattered when my HDL and triglycerides are 62 and 73 respectively thanks to eating a ketogenic diet and I was told my "bad" cholesterol was too high. I wasn’t worried about it because I’d read Cholesterol Clarity and knew what really mattered.

 

When I went to see my doctor in the office, she wrote me a prescription for Levothyroxine because she says my thyroid level is too low and that it's driving up my total cholesterol and liver enzymes. When I asked whether a higher insulin level could cause this, she insisted that I couldn’t possibly have high insulin with my normal HbA1c. She wouldn’t run the fasting insulin nor the particle size cholesterol test that I requested. And I also noticed she only tested TSH, which does seem high. But I don't know if that means my thyroid is low or not. So my question for you guys is this: Is it possible that the thyroid function is low simply based on a high TSH level? Does a ketogenic diet help with this or do I need to do other things to bring this into line so my cholesterol and liver enzymes can normalize?

 

Thanks and keep up the good work you guys are doing!

2. Can a ketogenic diet help improve psoriasis? And what other things should I be doing to help with this autoimmune condition?

In your experience, what impact does the ketogenic diet have on an autoimmune disease such as psoriasis? Are there other things I need to be doing in addition to dietary changes to help improve this?

3. What role does a ketogenic diet plan in helping to treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and candida?

 

Hi Jimmy and Will,

 

I'm interested in learning more more about the role of ketogenic diets to help treat SIBO and candida. I have both of these conditions and I am also breastfeeding! Most of the information I can find about this seems to target pregnancy with breastfeeding lumped into that group. I would really like to try keto but all I have read is mixed information about ketones feeding bacteria and yeast but then so do carbs. It’s so confusing! Any information you have on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks so much,

– Can taking a cortisol-lowering supplement during your period offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss? Or is the higher cortisol serving a purpose?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

My boyfriend and I listen to your podcast together and it has helped convince me that this is the lifestyle for us to follow. So thank you. After going through some significant health issues, including cervical cancer at the age of 28, I have struggled getting my hormones under control. I am perfectly healthy now except for the effects of dramatically surging hormones much more intensely than other women do.

 

I’ve learned from your show that women are less likely to be in ketosis during their period cycle because of an increase in cortisol levels which can then lead to a stall in weight loss. But my question for you guys is this: Would taking a cortisol-lowering supplement offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss during that time of the month for menstruating women? Or does that higher cortisol level serve a purpose in our body and health? I get so stressed with hunger and cravings when my period hits and I’m wondering what a ketogenic woman can do to deal with this each month during her cycle.

 

Thanks again for the great show and the awesome work that you do!

 

Kristi

- Can a ketogenic diet help someone who has had their lap band taken out? What can be done to normalize the body’s hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I just came across your Keto Talk podcast and thought I would reach out to you for advice about the lap band I had removed due to erosion (hole in the stomach). I was very sad to let go of it. In my research on the effects of the lap band had on my body and eating so very little for so long, I suspect that it has taken a toll on my body and I’m now struggling to lose weight. When I consulted a medical weight loss clinic, they put me on a 1200 calorie, 120g carb diet and I gained weight in the two weeks I did it. That’s what led me to the ketogenic diet to help stave off the weight gain. Do you have any clinical experience or know about any research that looks at the use of keto for former lap banders looking for a way to keep their weight under control? I had my hormones tested and my testosterone came back at zero. I suspect having the lap band decreased my T levels from the stress it put my body through. So if the lap band changed my body’s hormone levels, what else has it changed? Is that why I’m struggling to lose weight like everyone else can? How do I figure out what I need to do since we are not all the same.

Thanks so much for your help!

1. Why would blood sugar levels go up when taking long lasting insulin while eating keto?

Hey guys,

I am currently in the process of reading Keto Clarity and have begun the switch over to burning fat instead of sugar. I am a Type 2 diabetic and inject insulin four times a day. Recently I went on a road trip and forgot to bring my insulin. When I got back home, I checked my blood sugar and saw the best reading I have had in over six months. But here’s where it gets weird—when I took my long lasting insulin, the next day my glucose numbers were higher again. Why in the world would my blood sugar go up when taking insulin while eating a ketogenic diet? Any insights you have on this would be awesome.

2. Could the joint pain in my knees be brought on simply by being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

I am a big fan of your podcast and have been keto for six months losing around 60 pounds. I'm now in the best shape of my life at the age of 30 and feel great with lots of energy and I actually love working out now. However, I’ve noticed I’m dealing with a lot more joint pain now than I did before eating ketogenic, especially in my knees. I thought things would improve now that I’ve taken off some extra weight. I am definitely in ketosis when I test for them and I’m trying to avoid what my mother just went through with a double knee replacement. I feel pain in the joints but don’t have any noticeable inflammation. Is being in ketosis causing this to happen?

Thank you so much for your help.

3. Does a ketogenic diet lead to abnormally high liver function test results? Is my liver overstressed by having to metabolize the extra dietary fat?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

A few years back, I had abnormally high liver function test results and my primary care physician was concerned that my numbers got worse because of keto. My AST and ALT were around 100 and they’re supposed to be no higher than 37. At the time she advised me to start eating more carbs and all my numbers that were bad came within the normal range. I started keto and fasting again in 2016 and lost 64 pounds after my third pregnancy. I’m concerned when I go back to see my doctor next month that my liver tests will be bad again. I’m hypothyroid, but I don’t have any known liver or gallbladder issues. Is it possible my liver was overstressed by having to metabolize the extra fat in my ketogenic diet? If so, then does that mean keto isn’t right for me? I sure hope not because I feel so fantastic in ketosis.

Thanks for any insight about this and thank you for all you both do!

– Should I strive to have higher levels of blood ketones if I seem to be thriving in my mental clarity and energy when I am barely in ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’ve been doing a ketogenic diet for three months as a physically active 27-year old man with 10% body fat. I’ve noticed that I feel so much better when I’m barely in ketosis at around 0.5 mmol—that’s my sweet spot where I have better mental clarity and energy. Anytime I’ve tried pushing blood ketones up by moderating protein more, my ketones rise to 2.0-5.0 mmol, but I don’t feel quite the same mental benefits as I do in the lower level of ketosis. So my question for you guys is this—should I strive for higher ketones and hope these kick in at some point to give me the benefits I desire or should I listen to my body and return to the lower level where I seem to thrive?

By the way, you’ll find it interesting that I seem to tolerate more carbohydrates in my diet than more protein. I’ve been able to eat as much as 50g carbs (10% of my caloric intake) without every impacting my ketosis levels while eating just 2% more protein in my diet will kick me out of ketosis completely. Fascinating! I don’t take any supplements and don’t use any sweeteners at all. I’ve yet to find anyone else dealing with this issue, so I’d love to hear an explanation of what might be going on.

Thanks in advance!

Jørgen

– Thoughts on Jimmy wearing a Freestyle Libre flash glucose monitor for the past week with curious results (blood sugar going down when eating ketogenic meals, the impact stress has played on the readings, Mexican food experiment and the recovery from that)

 

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

 

Someone posted this article where they ask if sugar feeds cancer. The "expert" claims that it’s not sugar that’s responsible for the growth of cancer cells but rather insulin. They conclude from this that we should not be avoiding carbs. Maybe it’s just me but isn't this "expert" just shooting themselves in the foot by drawing this conclusion? If insulin is supposed to be the culprit in causing cancer and carbohydrates are the primary instigator in these raised insulin levels, then wouldn't lowering carb intake then be a wise strategy decrease insulin? Ummm, hello? The conclusions of this "expert" are really poorly thought out and even contradictory. This type of thinking completely boggles my mind.

– Why do some Ketonians seem to experience a lump in their throats when they start eating keto?

 

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

 

I've been keto for about 6 weeks after eating Paleo for eight years. My wife and I are measuring our blood glucose and blood ketones every morning and keeping track of it. I will occasionally experience a lump in my throat since starting keto and my Google searches about this show a lot of theories about what it is, including acid reflux. We eat a very clean low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet with no processed foods and plenty of fresh leafy greens, grass-fed meats, butter, coconut oil, avocado, cheese, and more. Do you know what might be causing this because it seems to be a common problem reported by low-carb/ketogenic dieters.

 

Love your show!

1. Why would someone eating ketogenic experience very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux? What can be done to resolve this issue?

 

Jimmy and Adam,

 

I love your podcast and have been on keto for six months. I am now inspired to help others start their own keto journey. Unfortunately, one of the people I’ve tried to help is a close friend who started keto about a month after I did and she has been experiencing some very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux. Her doctor ran all the GI test and it all came back clear. The only solutions mainstream medicine has to offer is pills, pills, and more pills. She did suffer from bulimia for seven years and this is likely where her problem started. Do you have any suggestions on what she should do to resolve this? I’m guessing it’s a gut bacteria/enzyme issue and she’s been taking apple cider vinegar and cold water to no available so far.

 

Thanks for al the info you are puting out!

2. For someone who is skinny fat, how do get body fat percentage into a healthy range without getting too skinny?

 

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally,

 

I found your podcast three weeks ago and am finding it very informative in my ketogenic journey. I’m 61 years old and could be considered skinny fat. I’ve been ketogenic for 18 months and got down to 115 pounds, but still with a body fat of 30%. I ordered a Ketonix to test breath ketones, but urine ketone testing strips show I’m in ketosis. So my question for you guys is this: Should I be concerned if I continue to lose scale weight but the body fat percentage is not getting into a healthy range?My rheumatologist is concerned that I’m losing too much weight and wonders if I'm eating enough. How do I convince my doctors that I'm doing okay? Also what body fat percentage should I be shooting for? Thanks so much! My husband and I have learned so much from you and he’s down 25 pounds while getting off his blood pressure medications. We will never go back to the SAD diet ever again.

 

Thanks for your help,

3. Can a ketogenic diet help to heal some very painful hemorrhoids?

 

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

 

I'm a big fan of your podcast and it’s been a fabulous resource for my keto journey this past year as it has healed my eczema and IBS completely. My question for you is about my husband who is experiencing some very painful hemorrhoids. He eats what he thinks are “healthy choices,” works out six days a week, doesn’t smoke, and drinks on occasion. He also had gallbladder surgery a couple of years ago. I've been trying to get him on board with keto in the hopes it could give him some relief from the hemorrhoid pain. Can a ketogenic diet help him with this? Your input is greatly appreciated!

– Is a lowering of the basal metabolic rate (BMR) from eating a ketogenic diet actually beneficial to longevity? Are “normal” BMR levels too high based on SAD dieters?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

 

I love the inspiration and support I receive from Keto Talk. Prior to going keto, a dietitian had me on a weight loss diet that included low-fat and calorie-counting. Predictably, I was constantly hungry despite losing weight eating that way. But I couldn’t maintain it and the regain was rapid. The dietitian told me that my metabolism had slowed down meaning I needed to eat less and less calories to start losing weight again. Dr. Nally has said many times that eating too few calories will lower your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and the benefits that come from the restriction of carbohydrates in the context of a well-formulated ketogenic diet. This is probably a much more complex system than we even know, but I wonder if what we regard as a “normal” BMR is different for Ketonians vs. SAD dieters since the BMR test ranges is based on mostly people eating non-keto. This might sound controversial, but what if the ketogenic diet lowers BMR and that helps improve longevity? Could it be that lowering BMR below what is considered “normal” is actually the real normal range for healthy living? I hope this question provokes a potential knowledge spill.

 

Kind regards,

 

Frank in Brisbane, Australia

- Does replenishing your glycogen stores fully kick you out of ketosis? Can you produce ketone bodies and store boy fat simultaneously?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I love your podcast and have read your books! I've been keto since January 2016 and IF regularly with some longer fasts, so I'm definitely fat adapted. I eat PLENTY of fat and I love it! I have a question today about glycogen stores and corresponding ketone readings. From what I understand, if I overdo it and eat too many carbs or too much protein or both, my glycogen stores will eventually fill up and then the leftover glucose from the meal will be converted to fat for storage. I'm wondering if filling my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage will knock me out of ketosis? In other words, as long as I'm registering a reading within the nutritional ketosis range of 0.5-3.0 mmol on my blood ketone meter, is it safe to assume that I didn't load up my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage? Is it even physiologically possible to both burn fat for fuel and producing ketones while also storing fat at the same time?

Thanks so much for all that you do, and thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

– STUDY: The cholesterol and calorie hypotheses are both dead — it is time to focus on the real culprit: insulin resistance

1. Is there something about the ketogenic diet that causes vivid dreams that lead to nightmares?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

Reading Keto Clarity last year made me realize that the keto life is the key to life, so thank you! I have question I’d love your help with that I haven’t seen a good answer to anywhere online. Do you experience what I’ll describe as “keto dreams?” Some people have shared that since eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet, they struggle more with nightmares. I had stress-induced insomnia for 10 years prior to going keto, but now that I’m sleeping better my sleep is plagued by extremely vivid dreams that oftentimes lead to nightmares. Am I suffering from some sort of deficiency in my diet for this to be happening now? Or is my body just working through the stress of bad sleep for more than a decade?

Thank you very much for your help,

Jezabel

2. Is chicken fat and bacon a worse meat option while eating keto because of their polyunsaturated fat content? Or does it even matter?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I've been eating low-carb, ketogenic since December 2014. I check my blood glucose and blood ketones daily. One of the pleasures of eating keto is I get to enjoy cooking and eating real foods like pasture raised chicken and making bone broth. However, I do have a concern about the chicken fat containing linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). I learned more about these reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz where she describes PUFAs as obesegenic because they store more fat in a low insulin environment while increasing insulin resistance outside the fat cells. Even Dr. Nally’s beloved bacon contains large amounts of these PUFAs as well. Did that wake you up Doc? Beef fat, lamb fat, and butter are all low in PUFAs. So my question for you guys is this: Does the choice of meat type with better fat profiles when you are eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat matter in terms of dealing with body fat loss goals?

I’ll be listening for your reply on the show,

Frank in Brisbane, Australia

3. Is there a keto-friendly allergy medication or remedy that doesn’t contain unwanted sugars and other culprit ingredients?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Thanks for all you do in spreading the word about the multiple benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle through your podcast. I suffer from a lot of allergies, especially grass and ragweed pollen. Over the years I've experimented with many antihistamines and their efficacies for me. Of course, Benadryl is the best, but has the side effect of severe drowsiness. Through experimentation I've found what works best for me is the CVS brand of 12-hour allergy product where the active ingredient is Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Now that I'm keto, it seems prudent to reexamine all the medications and supplements I take in terms of their compatibility with this way of eating.

In my allergy medication that I like, here's the list of inactive ingredients in this product: Calcium Sulfate, Carnauba Wax, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Confectioner's Sugar, D&C Yellow 10, Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue 2/Indigo Carmine Aluminum Lake, FD&C Yellow 6, Gelatin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Methacrylic Acid Copolymer, Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Pharmaceutical Ink, Polysorbate 80, Povidone, Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sucrose, Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Triethyl Citrate.

Ragweed season is fast approaching, and I will need an antihistamine product that will actually work—otherwise I will be absolutely miserable. I'm willing to take Benedryl every 4 hours if needed, but I was wondering if there is a long-acting antihistamine you advise your highly insulin resistant patients to take which will have minimum insulin and glucose response. I’d like to avoid the confectioner’s sugar, sucrose, and other suspect ingredients in that CVS brand if possible. This seems like an issue that might affect a lot of your listeners. Thanks for all you do in reaching and teaching so many about the ketogenic lifestyle!

- What’s the best way to determine what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for my ketogenic diet?

Hi, Jimmy and The Doc!

Thank you for writing Keto Clarity and doing the Keto Talk podcast sharing your wisdom about the ketogenic lifestyle. I’ve been keto since January 2017 and have lost 15 pounds. While I eat low-carb, high-fat, I’m still struggling about how to figure out exactly how many carbohydrates, how much protein, and how much fat to eat. I follow a keto group on Facebook that gives me inspiration, but they don’t believe excess protein gets converted into glucose as I’ve learned from you guys. If you disagree with their version of keto, then they shame you for not understanding the diet. In fact, when I asked about testing my blood ketones recently, one person responded that eating 20g carbohydrates will automatically put you in to ketosis. I know this isn’t true, but it’s made me think about how I can go about discovering what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for me. Can you guys help?

Thanks for all you do!

ADAM NALLY’S KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 75: – Weight loss: Why eating MORE carbs could be the secret to transforming YOUR body – Cut down on carbohydrate to raise the chance of getting pregnant: Couples trying for a baby advised to eat only one portion a day – Girl With Diabetes and Insulin Allergy to Receive Pancreas Transplant - What impact does blood glucose-lowering supplements have on blood ketone levels? Are they beneficial while eating ketogenic? Jimmy and Adam, Various spices are reputed for their glucose lowering effects. For example, apple cider vinegar, fenugreek, and cinnamon are all well-known to decrease blood sugar levels and I’m sure there are many others. My question for you guys is this: What impact does ingesting these spices have while on a ketogenic diet specifically on BHOB blood ketone levels. I currently take fenugreek because I learned about the glucose lowering effects in a study when it slowed the absorption of the carbage these SAD dieters were eating. But since a well-formulated keto diet has very few carbs to begin with, would the fenugreek provide the same benefit or may it even backfire given that fenugreek is almost 60% carbohydrates? I realize blood sugar lowering isn’t the same as ketone-boosting, but I do see the two going hand-in-hand. So what do you think? I realize this might be a question without a clear answer, but I’d still love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for the very informative and helpful podcast.

Does a ketogenic diet lower insulin levels and provide ultimate healing for insulin resistance which seems to be genetic? Hi guys, I'm a recovered diabetic thanks to eating a low carb (but not necessarily ketogenic) diet. I used to be on the maximum daily Metformin dosage and took 130 units a day of long-acting insulin. I’m off all of those medications now and have an A1c of 5.3. I lost 60 pounds fairly easily on low-carb, but now it’s stalled out. My insulin levels are still very high, so I assume I’m still quite insulin resistant which is making the weight loss stubborn. I’ve added in some intermittent fasting of 18/6 as well as a few 24-hour fasts on the weekend where my blood ketone levels have reached about 1.0 mmol. My question for you guys is this: Does your experience show that a truly ketogenic diet lowers insulin levels? Some experts I’ve heard have said that research shows that insulin resistance is pretty much genetic which means you may not be able to drop it below some arbitrary level no matter what you do. Do you agree or disagree with this? Thanks for answering my question! Mark HIGH-FAT LOW-CARB, PERFECT MACROS NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship 2. Could incorrect pressure in a CPAP machine prevent weight loss despite achieving therapeutic levels of ketones? Hello Jimmy and The Doc, I have a question for you about sleep apnea. I have used a CPAP machine for 15+ years and I wear it faithfully every night. I started keto in January 2016 and have noticed since eating this way that I don't have as many aches and pains as I once did. I have only been able to lose 10 or so pounds, my blood pressure is somewhat high at 138/85, my AC1 is 5.7, and my urine cortisol levels are fairly high at 188. Could incorrect pressure in my CPAP machine have anything to do with not being able to lose weight despite the fact that I’m burning ketones according to the Ketonix which always shows me blowing red for higher levels of ketosis? Thank you for your time, Kurt 3. Can a high-dose Vitamin C IV treatment spike blood sugar levels alone or is there hidden glucose causing this? Hey Guys, We love your podcast and anxiously await the new episodes each week. My wife and I have been low-carb for two years and keto most of the time for the past year. I travel about 18 days a month so it’s hard to maintain a state of nutritional ketosis all the time. We are 60 and 61 years old and we keep our blood ketone levels between 0.5 to 1.0 most of the time. Our question is about rising blood sugar levels after getting a Vitamin C IV from our functional medical doctor. My wife and I have both been getting this treatment lately because our bloodwork showed that we are low on Vitamin B and C even though we take supplements for both of them. After the first Vitamin C IV treatment, my blood glucose level rose to 172 and my wife’s went to 284 about 1 hour after the treatment. Our normal fasting blood glucose levels are between 77-95 depending on how we ate the day before. Needless to say, we became concerned this would have a negative impact on our insulin resistance. When we asked our doctor about it thinking that there must be some glucose in the IV bag, she said that it was just a reaction to the high dose vitamin C and that there was no glucose in it. We had already paid for two treatments each, so we did it again this week and this time our blood sugar went up to 144 and 128 respectively an hour later. Have you ever heard of this kind of reaction or do you think that there was some glucose in the IV? Our doctor knows that we practice low-carb and she is monitoring us because she’s still quite skeptical.

Hello guys, Back in Episode 12 of Keto Talk, Dr. Nally mentioned that cortisol levels rise as a direct result of an injury or surgery and that depending on the extent of the damage to your body and the repair it needs, it might kick you out of ketosis for 2-12 months. So my question for you is this: When you are out of a state of nutritional ketosis during this recovery period and assuming that you stay on a ketogenic diet, what exactly is my body using for fuel during this time? And what is happening to all the dietary fat I am consuming? Thanks for a great and very informative podcast!

AFFORDABLE KETONE TESTING AT LAST

KEY QUOTE: “I needed to reduce inflammation, heal my brain, and get my immune system in check. I knew that ketones do all those things so I started a ketogenic diet for my health.” — Shawn Mynar

Here’s what Jimmy and Shawn talked about in Episode 73:

- What can I do to heal my adrenals and thyroid issues while on a ketogenic diet? Do I need to heal these prior to going keto?

Hey guys,

I have been attempting to do a ketogenic diet since last July and it works wonders for my MS symptoms (I first heard about it from Dr. Terry Wahls). The issue I'm having now is adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. I’m taking low-dose Synthroid, but I’m tired, nauseous, depressed, and feel cold all the time. Despite keeping my carbs under 30g total daily eating only whole foods, I have gained 20 pounds in two months. Since the adrenals and thyroid are connected, is it possible that I’m eating too low-carb for my stressed out adrenals? Or I am I not low-carb enough? You guys often say on Keto Talk that hormones dictate everything about your weight and health, but something is going on with me that I can’t seem to figure out. I feel like crap most of the time despite being on the healthiest diet I've ever eaten in my life—no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no sugar, 3-5 cups of fresh veggies, full fat coconut milk, grass-fed meats, cooking with bacon grease, and 1/2 cup of blueberries daily. Is there a way to heal my adrenals and thyroid with the ketogenic diet or do I need to heal these first before going full keto? Really love the podcast.

All the best,

Christy

1. Does keto take away your period and lead to undesirable health effects? Should I add in starch every few days to deal with these issues?

Hey there,

I recently read this article by a naturopath named Dr. Lara Briden: http://www.larabriden.com/are-you-eating-enough-get-period-amenorrhea/

In the post, she claims that eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet will take away your period. I've still not had a period since I started keto over 20 months ago. I also developed all four of the signs she mentioned: low T3 (non-Hashimoto's hypothyroid), hair loss, constipation, and insomnia. I average 5.5 hours of less-than-restful sleep per night with sleep aids and high-dose melatonin waking up every couple of hours. I'm desperate to know how I can tweak my ketogenic diet to favor fertility. My naturopath knows very little about keto and I’m not sure she can help me. I’ve been strict keto with 20/4 intermittent fasting for a while, so I wonder if I could get away with some starch every few days to see if that helps. Between my infertility and profoundly low estradiol, it just know it has triggered my binge eating.

Thanks so much for any help you can provide,

Tara

2. Should I eat both low-carb and low-calorie in order to get into ketosis and see the results I’m looking for?

Hi guys,

I have listened to all of your podcasts, some of them twice as I’ve become a sponge with the information. My question for you is about breast cancer and ketosis. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 1/2 years ago and have had radiation and on tamoxifen for over three years. Cancer is what led me to start listening to health podcasts. During the cancer treatments, I put on 5kg (11 pounds) and it all seemed to develop in my midsection. I have tried low-carb and even keto, but can’t seem to get into ketosis no matter what I do. You guys have said many times on your podcast that some women need estrogen to help with weight loss, but I’m wondering if perhaps I need to be eating low-carb AND low-calorie in order to get the best results. When I’ve done keto previous about 8 years ago when I was at a bodybuilding gym, I lost a significant amount of weight very quickly. But I just can’t seem to get there now. I also take antidepressants to help with hot flashes and realize these have a side effect of weight gain. Can you help me?

3. How can I get the benefits that ketosis provides my autoimmune arthritis without the unwanted weight loss that happens when I eat keto?

I have been enjoying your podcasts and reading your Keto Clarity book. I started on a ketogenic diet to help with my autoimmune arthritis and I think I've been making some progress. Unfortunately, I’m losing weight and I don’t need to be. I’m 5’2” tall and actually underweight at 91 pounds. My goal is to be at 105 pounds. Despite shoveling down 75% fat in my diet, I just keep losing weight. Tracking my nutrition with an online tracker, it says my calories are higher than are required for me and yet my weight keeps dropping despite the fact I feel good. Should I choose being in ketosis and controlling my arthritis while losing weight or eating a few more carbohydrates to get out of ketosis in order to get back to normal weight again but dealing with the arthritis?

Got any suggestions? I'd so love to get back some of my feminine curves again.

- How do I need to adjust the macronutrients on my ketogenic diet in the late stages of my pregnancy and while breastfeeding? Should I add more protein?

Hi guys,

Love the show! You are doing an amazing service, so keep up the good work. I’ve been keto for four months and I’m doing great losing 25 pounds and dropping my A1c from 5.6 to 5.0 in just two months of eating this way. My husband went keto at the same time as me and has lost 40 pounds. Needless to say, our doctor is ecstatic about our results. We’ve heard people joking about being careful when you go keto and normalize your hormones because it might just make getting pregnant easier—well SURPRISE, here comes baby #4!

Are there any recommendations about how to adjust the macronutrients of my ketogenic diet for the second and third trimester and even once I started breastfeeding? I usually eat around 80% fat in my diet with protein around 70g and carbs at 20g. I’m definitely making sure I consume at minimum of 2,000 calories daily so I don’t stress my Hashimoto’s or my adrenals that I’ve worked so hard to heal over the past four years. Should I eat a bit more protein as the pregnancy continues? You guys will find this interesting that the way I found out I was pregnant was my ketones suddenly dropped to 0.3 after always registering 1.5-3.0 and on a hunch we did a pregnancy test. Whammo bammo, pregnant. Crazy right?

I’m so thankful to be keto-adapted heading into this pregnancy and hoping it will keep my notorious severe morning sickness at bay this time around.

Thanks again!

- Is eating carbs a good way to lower blood sugar? And which is more important as a health goal—lowering blood glucose levels or insulin levels?

Hey guys,

I understand that blood glucose can rise on a ketogenic diet due to the physiologic glucose sparing effect you guys have discussed several times on the podcast. In his new book FAT FOR FUEL, Dr. Joe Mercola shares his solution to this by simply eating more carbs and thus trigger an insulin response to bring the glucose down. Of course, if you eat more carbohydrates in your diet to make this happen, it will invariably kick you out of ketosis. So in light of this, it begs the question: which is worse for you to have—higher glucose levels or higher insulin levels? Is there another way to bring blood glucose down without triggering insulin to go up? Maybe some light exercise would do the trick? Thanks for answering my question.

1. In light of my blood work results, is it possible keto isn’t right for me? If I want longevity, energy, and mental benefits, how should I eat?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thank you for all that you're putting out there regarding ketogenic living. I first came across you Jimmy when you did a podcast with Dave Asprey a few years back and have listened to all of your Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show and Keto Talk episodes ever since.

I've been experimenting with keto on and off for the past few years. I don't do it for weight loss since I'm a lean 32 year old male at 8% body fat with high muscle mass and in very good shape (I can run a sub-6 minute mile, deadlift 3x my body weight, etc.). I follow keto for constant energy, mental acuity and longevity purposes.

When measuring my blood glucose levels while in keto, I find that they're quite high: 100-120 fasting blood glucose and up to 140 postprandial. I'm aware of physiologic insulin resistance, but the numbers nonetheless concern me; I just had blood labs done and my HbA1c was 5.8, up from 5.2 which were my numbers a year ago while on a moderate carb diet.

My triglycerides have also gone up from 54 in February on moderate carb to 97 today. My total cholesterol has risen from 180 to 225 but that's to be expected on keto. My testosterone is a bit on the low side for my age at 450, but it’s been this way regardless of whether I'm on keto, moderate carb, or have taken a week off of training (I was hoping keto would raise it).

Dr. Dominic D'Agostino acknowledges that for certain people, keto simply isn't the answer. Although I feel healthy eating this way, my blood work results seem to indicate otherwise. Am I one of those people who flourishes on moderate carb eating and the occasional fast and keto just isn't for someone like me? It's worth noting that my mother who is in her mid-60's is in spectacular shape with great lab numbers without ever going to the gym and she has always eaten a carb-laden diet.

One more interesting note to share with you is my body composition is identical whether I’m eating keto or high carb. So, with longevity being one of my top priorities alongside stable energy and mental acuity, what nutritional approach do you think I should do to reach my goals?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Chris

2. Is it possible to create acidosis from your diet and exercise choices? How can you prevent this from happening?

Hi guys,

Thank you for your work as it's an absolute asset to so many of us. I started doing 2 workouts a day of weight lifting and running or walking. I’ve noticed I started having painful urination as well as my side started hurting recently. When I checked my urine ketone levels several times, they were always extremely dark. After reading a graph on Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt’s website about acidosis, I became concerned. I immediately ate a bunch of carbs from ice cream and other sources to try to deal with this issue and stop the pain by driving down the ketones. I also drank some baking soda mixed with water since I thought this had to do with acidity. Amazingly, 8 hours after doing this I STILL showed ketones on the urine ketone sticks. So then I ate some chili cheese fries bringing my total carb consumption that day to 500g.

It's now been 3 days later and my body had never stopped producing ketones. It went to small levels at one point when I skipped my workout for a day. I'm a type 2 diabetic with chronic kidney disease who's used straight keto for about a year and have never seen anything like this. If I have a carb-filled meal, this will usually kick me out of ketosis for 4-5 days. So, have you seen acidosis happen as a result of diet and exercise? What are some things I can do to prevent that from happening again?

Thanks for your insights on this!

3. Is there any added benefit to taking one month off from keto annually vs. constantly staying in nutritional ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I have listened to most of your Keto Talk podcasts as well as some LLVLC podcasts and they are both informative and entertaining. What I take from hearing people like Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Ted Naiman and Dr. Nally is that the hormone insulin is what controls and signals the storage or burning of fat and that lower insulin levels (outside of being a Type 1 diabetic) is healthier. It seems that intermittent fasting, keto, and exercise all lower insulin and improve health. Many of the arguments point to the evolution and hunter gatherer hypothesis of storing fat in times of plenty during the spring and summer and then burning stored body fat during the winter and when food was in shortage between animal kills. The problem with the modern-day SAD diet is that there are too many carbs in our diet that leads to elevated insulin levels which then results in insulin resistance and your body is constantly storing fat, never using it in times of need which never come, and leaves the individual perpetually hungry to eat and eat and eat.

My question for you guys is this: if we are designed to store and burn fat and alternate from using ketones and glucose as our fuel source, then isn’t this an argument for cycling in and out of ketosis on a regular basis? Since getting keto-adapted takes about 4-6 weeks for most people, why wouldn’t doing 11 months of keto with one month of a non-ketogenic diet be better than eating keto 24/7/365? I have not found any studies on this and I would imagine the change in diet would be good for the body to serve as reset for just one month a year. I know yo-yo dieting is bad for your overall health and that there is a risk of a relapse to your old ways when you get off of keto that could prevent you from going back to it again. But there might be real benefits to this as it probably better resembles how our ancestors evolved in their nutrition and may help reset your body to get better results after long-term ketosis. What do you think?

- Why does my health seemingly deteriorate when I go too low on carbs and improves again when I add back in rice and other carbohydrates?
 
Hey Jimmy and The Doc, 
 
I’m loving my new lifestyle change using fasting and a ketogenic diet to address my Hashimoto's and weight loss concerns. I started on New Year’s Day this year and I’m already down 44 pounds and feel fantastic most of the time. However, I have noticed that if I fast too much or keep my carbohydrate intake too low over a week that my health deteriorates with an increase in my level of fatigue, slower metabolism, severe depression, and thyroid symptoms rearing their ugly head. In my research into this, it all seems to point to reverse T3 levels which I’ve found is fixed when I eat a bowl of rice and start eating more carbs again. So how do I continue to lose weight, improve my health, and keep feeling great eating keto without these unwanted side effects? My daughter also suffers from this same thing, so there seems to be something to it. Any thoughts?
 
Thanks so much,
 
Lisa

  - Is genetic testing that claims I need to be eating a low-fat, higher-carb diet valid if I am enjoying my ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and Doc Nally, Thank you for doing what you do. My life has changed thanks to this podcast. I have a quick question you guys: I recently got my Pathway Genomics results and the report said that my genes would benefit from a LOW FAT, higher carb diet. I have been keto for a year and I was shocked to see this. The report suggested my fats should be comprised of 20-25% of my diet, protein 20-25% and carbs 50-55%! I shuddered when I read this. It also said my body can process monounsaturated fats better than animal fats. What gives? Do my genes just not lend themselves to a keto diet?

All the best,

Esma

KEY QUOTE: “If your low-carb ketogenic diet is working, why would you cheat and put your body through that?”  – Jimmy Moore

STUDY: Submitted by Dr. Dallas Peak, MD who was taken in by the use of the phrase “benign dietary ketosis” (BDK) to describe nutritional ketosis

1. Why did my symptoms of Raynaud’s syndrome seem to get worse when I started eating keto?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I went gluten free years ago and Paleo was the next natural step. I have had autoimmune issues my whole life and my doctors couldn’t figure it out. One of them once told me, "we usually only see these symptoms in overweight people", but overweight I am not. When first going Paleo, I made a drastic mistake without knowing it. The Paleo crowd was all about the bananas and potatoes back then so that's what I did. Even though I am not big fans of either of these they were the least offensive carbs and it seemed to help. A few months ago I decided to go with a ketogenic approach doing it the correct way this time. I still have fruit in the house for my kids but I have not touched it. I never had the low-carb flu and within a week was sleeping like a rock for the first time in years despite living the stressful life of being a single mom. Joint pain did not flare up as much and my migraines are not showing up as often. My question for you guys is this: I have always been plagued with Raynaud's syndrome. It lasts all year long, not just in the winter. I have noticed that since I do not feel hungry on a regular basis it is easy to go many hours without food while out running errands without noticing how long it has been. My Raynaud’s then rears it's ugly head and I feel it. I'm not sure if it's going too long on an empty stomach or something else happening, but the Raynaud's is the only thing that has gotten worse since I started eating keto. Do you know why this is happening? I am already taking a magnesium supplement to help. Even if you guys have no solution for me, I will just suck it up buttercup and deal with it as I have in the past because the benefits I am getting from nutritional ketosis far outweigh the cold hands and feet that I have always had to deal with anyway. Listening to Keto Talk, it is very clear to me that you guys have a goal of helping people and getting correct information out there. I am so glad I found your podcast.

Thank you both for your time and effort and keep up the great work.

2. Why did I start experiencing very sore spots on my skin when I decided to cheat on my low-carb, ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I recently found your podcast and have greatly enjoyed getting caught up on all the episodes! I have a question that might actually be a new one for you as I haven’t heard it discussed on your show before. I have been eating low-carb, ketogenic with weekly cheat days as Tim Ferriss outlines in his book The Four-Hour Body. After about six months of doing this, I noticed I would wake up with very sore spots on my skin following a cheat day. It seemed to be concentrated on my torso and sometimes on my upper arms, neck, and scalp. This soreness was on the surface of the skin, not the muscles or joints. The best way I can describe it is it felt like a giant bruise that was only painful when you pressed on it. My skin would be so sensitive that I would skip running or other exercise that day because the mere bouncing of my skin was too uncomfortable to bear. The surface area of skin that would be sore seemed to correlate positively with how much crappy carbage I splurged on the previous day. Interestingly, the first areas to become sore were the areas in which I tend to store fat, such as the love handles, and the soreness would radiate out from there. If I had a really obscene cheat day, then even my upper leg skin would get sore. Very surprisingly, this phenomenon did not go away when I went back to the high-carb Standard American Diet for a period of time. It seemed anytime I indulged in something particularly sugary/carby, my skin got sore. This soreness would only subside after a day of eating low-carb keto again. So my questions for you guys is this: What could be causing this? Is it just a rapid-onset generalized edema resulting from a significant increase in carbs? Why did it not begin occurring until a good 6+ months into eating low-carb and why did it persist after I went back on a high-carb diet? Have I permanently altered how my body reacts to carbs by going low-carb for so long? Finally, should I be concerned about this? While trying to find answers to these questions online, I saw this “sore skin” phenomenon mentioned by a couple of people on low-carb diet forums who claimed they never experienced this before going low-carb. But none of these references included any explanations other than "possible edema".

Thanks so much for your help and your wonderful podcast!

3. Can Adderall be having an adverse effect on getting into ketosis? And does keto do anything to help improve adult ADHD? Dear Keto Talk hosts, I am a 62-year old female and have been moving to keto through the usual progression—it started 20 years ago trying to eat local and real food, then on to WAPF, then Paleo, and now low-carb, ketogenic consuming 20-40g carbohydrates daily. Most of my carbs come from salad, kefir, cheese, and kombucha. My blood sugars have been coming down but I am still in the high 90s for fasting blood sugar in the morning. I have only seen .5 once on the blood ketone meter. I am trying to figure out what might be preventing ketosis for me and I have a couple of suspects. Because I have some of the MTHFR family of variations, my doctor has me on 1000 mcg of L-methylfolate and adenosyl/hydroxy B12. I am also taking 10 mg daily of Adderall. Would any of these be having an adverse effect on getting into ketosis? And does ketosis have any positive effect on improving adult ADHD? I’d really love to get off of that medication if at all possible. Thanks for any insights you can provide. Stephanie KETO TALK MAILBOX - Why can’t I stay in ketosis eating what seems to be a well-formulated low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I listen to your Keto Talk podcast all the time and I have been doing keto for nearly 2 months. I am 6'7" and weigh 220 pounds with 16% body fat. I started keto for all the health benefits, energy, and disease prevention it provides. I eat about 100g protein, less than 20g carbs, and 200g of fat. This all seems right to me and I am being very strict with it. I get lots of sleep, am not stressed, and have experimented with exercising a little and not doing any exercise. There’s only one problem: I JUST CANT STAY IN KETOSIS! I bought a blood ketone monitor and the highest reading I have seen is 1.2 for a very short 2-day period and most of the time I am less than 0.5. Every morning I wake up I am 0.2 and then it’ll rise to 0.6 mid day and once in awhile I'll get to 0.8 in the evening or sometimes it goes the other way and I'll drop back down to 0.3. I eat bacon and eggs in the morning with coffee, MCT oil, and full fat whipping cream as well as high-fat meats and cheeses or cream cheeses for lunch and supper. The frustrating thing for me is my wife is getting 2.5-3.5 on the ketone meter eating the exact same thing I am. HELP! I hope you have an idea why I can't stay in ketosis.

Thanks so much,

Andrew in Canada

- Is there concern about very high levels of bile acid from a high-fat ketogenic diet leading to an increased cancer risk?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I was listening to Dr. Rhonda Patrick on Joe Rogan’s podcast where she mentioned that bile acid, namely, deoxycholic acid, is necessary to emulsify fat for absorption in the intestine and that a high consumption of fat – over 60% of calories - on a regular basis means the body is subject to higher levels of this acid. She stated outright that deoxycholic acid in higher than usual quantities causes damage to the DNA, even going so far as describing it as carcinogenic. Dr. Patrick noted that a ketogenic diet will ultimately result in the failure of the enzymes whose function is to repair DNA and thus will put the person at greater risk of cancer.

I am a Type 2 diabetic and have maintained a ketogenic diet for the past year. I was persuaded to adopt this diet by reading Keto Clarity and am regularly in a state of nutritional ketosis. My last HbA1c was 5.2% and my fasting insulin level was 4. I can’t imagine adopting some other approach despite the concerns about the higher levels of deoxycholic acid required to emulsify the fat. But is Dr. Patrick correct in her assessment of this cancer risk with keto? Thanks for your help!

1. How do you handle dealing with hypoglycemic episode when you go on a ketogenic diet? Does adding in carbs resolve the issue?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

Thanks for a great podcast! I really enjoy the information, and particularly when The Doc geeks out on us. My question for you guys is about hypoglycemia. If a person starting keto experiences a hypoglycemic episode, what’s the best way to deal with it? I can do 2-3 days of a keto diet but then on the 3rd or 4th morning I wake up with low blood sugar levels and experience nausea, feeling shaky, unfocused, and sometimes seeing brown spots. My blood glucose dips into the 40s and resolves after eating an apple, or some raisins, or some sweet potato. But then I feel like crap for the whole day. I don’t get this reaction when I simply eat lower carb with some sweet potatoes or fruit during the day. But I really want to experience all the full benefits of being ketogenic. I know I can't possibly be the only one who struggles with this.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

2. What is inflammation and why is it the evil bogeyman in our health? How exactly does a ketogenic diet lower inflammation?

Hey guys,

The keto community tends to throw around the topic of inflammation A LOT without much explanation about what it is. I think I know what it means, but I'm not 100% sure and I would venture to guess that most people don't. Can you address this on the podcast and how exactly a ketogenic diet helps lower it?
Thanks for your help,

3. Does consuming fermented dairy like cultured butter cause a rise in insulin to cause hunger? And will eating this kick me out of ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show! Although I’ve been at a healthy weight all my life, I’ve decided to follow a ketogenic diet to have a more positive relationship with food and to balance my moods. Your podcast has greatly inspired me! I recently bought a pack of cultured butter at the grocery store and after having some for the first time, I noticed that I was craving more of it which usually never happens when I consume fat. After doing some research I discovered that fermented dairy products tend to have a higher glycemic index than non-fermented. What is the impact of cultured butter on the hormones that control hunger and cravings? And could consuming fermented dairy products knock me out of ketosis?

- Is it common knowledge that the AMA promotes ketosis for a greater sense of well-being and pain reduction at the end of life?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I just lost my grandfather to pancreatic cancer. He chose to have no artificial nutrition through a feeding tube and IV in the last few days of his life. I believe that this allowed him to go into ketosis and eased his passing. I also found a reference to ketosis being beneficial at the end of life in an American Medical Association (AMA) publication. In researching this further, I found the following statement in the Education for Physicians on End-of-life Care Handbook by the AMA:

"Educate families about the studies that demonstrate that parenteral or enteral feeding of patients at the end of their lives neither improves symptom control nor lengthens life. Help them to understand that anorexia may be protective, as the resulting ketosis can lead to a greater sense of well-being and diminish pain."

So my questions for you guys is this: Is this common knowledge in the medical community in general? We were never told this by any of my grandfather’s medical caretakers and instead were encouraged to have him drink Boost with 20-30g sugar/serving right to the end. In light of this, could exogenous ketones have helped him ease the pain more and remain lucid enough to engage with the family a period of time longer before passing?

I really hope that you can share about this on Keto Talk. At least this community may be able to help a dying loved one by NOT pushing sugary drinks on them even when the nurses and doctors insist. Or possibly asking for no dextrose in their IV, especially if the patient has already said that he is ready to pass. It may be helpful to share the AMA reference with family members and caregivers, and explain what ketosis is and that the patient may not be feeling hunger. Those of us who have experienced ketosis know this firsthand.

It takes courage to go against mainstream thinking, especially in the world of medicine and health. I appreciate that you do it every day with your podcasts, blogs, and books.

Thanks so much,

Kristy

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 66:

Today we have a special treat for all you Ketonians out there. This bromance between Jimmy and Adam began way back in Episode 948 of The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show and continues today with Keto Talk. Dr. Nally was invited by Jimmy to be one of the featured speakers on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise which we shared on this podcast a couple of months back. But the video and audio footage with Dr. Nally became corrupted and unusable. To remedy that, Jimmy invited Dr. Nally to come on the podcast for a fresh interview that we know you’re gonna love.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Nally discuss how the interest in low-carbohydrate nutrition is becoming more attractive to physicians, the surprised response he gets from his patients as he teaches Paleo-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic principles, how the Internet has made patients much more savvy from a medical health perspective, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced wholeheartedly for people with diabetes, the progression of diabetes that happens over time, how fat-phobia is driving the policies about nutrition and health, why patient data matter doesn’t seem to matter to the policymakers, the lack of will and financial ability to do a credible nutritional health study, why insulin resistance seems to be completely ignored as a key marker in chronic disease, how blood pressure drops like a rock when you start low-carb, the cascade of improvements in health markers that happen when you cut your carbohydrate intake, the incredible improvements in the key cholesterol markers like triglycerides on a low-carb diet, there is no drug that will drop triglycerides as much as low-carb, what’s going on with patients who don’t see results despite eating ketogenic, how most of the artificial sweeteners (especially Ace-K commonly found in most diet sodas) and fake creamers won’t raise blood sugar but will raise insulin levels, why food quality is such an incredible aspect of a good low-carb, ketogenic diet, the disconnect with what real food is, how he uses aquaponics to create a sustainable food supply, how stress impacts people with an insulin response like eating 10 slices of bread instead of one, the strategies he tells patients to reduce the stress, why exercise has to become an enjoyable part of your life, how he sees atherosclerotic plaque (CIMT) in his patients reduced with a low-carb ketogenic diet, and the amplification of side effects that happen when a low-carb dieter takes a statin drug.

TESTIMONIAL:

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I want to thank you for all you do! I listen to your podcast all the time and wanted give you an update on my 76-year old mom who I recent put on keto. I fought all the naysayer doctors and others all along the way to tell them she didn’t need so much medication for diabetes, cholesterol, and blood pressure if I could change her diet to low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic. She was taking 500mg Metformin twice daily, but since going keto she’s been able to stop taking the Metformin. I cannot tell you how happy I am and how thankful that I found this podcast. Between Keto Talk and The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show, I have been able to educate myself on not only my own health, but also the health of my mother. Thank you again for all you do!

THE KETO DIET BY LEANN VOGEL

- Does the ketogenic diet help smooth the withdrawals associated with transitioning away from alcohol? Can starting keto work if you’re drinking alcohol?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Muscles,

I’ve listened to your podcasts for years, Jimmy, and recently finished the Keto Clarity audiobook. I’m sold on keto. I’ve been eating this way for a little less than a week, my usual sugar cravings are completely gone, and I feel great. But I’m doing this all with my husband in mind as well. He has horrible neuropathy in his feet probably because of pre-diabetes. He’s always been a guy who was thin and never gained weight despite being a horrible eater. Here’s the deal—I think he’s probably gonna be very resistant to making any changes in his diet and lifestyle, but the hardest part for sure is that he self-medicates with wine at the end of the day. His feet hurt, he’s tired, and he uses the wine as pain management. He’s got a bona fide addiction to it and I’m wondering how the ketogenic diet and alcohol withdrawal symptoms play together if at all. Any tips on how to ease this transition? Finally, would eating keto actually help with the symptoms or does he need to be alcohol-free before beginning on nutritional ketosis?

Thank you for your help with this!

1. Is a ketogenic diet taxing on the adrenals? Or can ketosis be beneficial in helping with irritability, fatigue, and sleeplessness?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Nally!

I'm so in love with The Doc and your lighthearted, yet very informative podcast! I love it when you guys brainstorm and drop knowledge for all of us to use and apply to our lives. Thank you! I recently had some lab tests done to see why I've been so irritable lately. I become wired at 9PM even though I’m physically tired and need rest. I just can’t sleep and I’m dragging myself out of bed in the morning. I had a baby just over year ago and she keeps me awake taking care of her, too. Here are some of the key markers from my labs:

Cortisol AM =12.5
DHEAS = 301
Testosterone total = 45
Testosterone, free = 8.4

I am still breastfeeding and started keto one week ago dropping 11 pounds so far. My naturopath prescribed me a prescription of a very low dose diuretic to lower my testosterone as well as various vitamins and supplements. I'm worried that this may be the beginning of PCOS as a direct result of insulin resistance or even a weird case of adrenal fatigue since my numbers are reversed from what they used to be. Since I've heard keto can be taxing on the adrenals, should I continue on with my ketogenic approach? Or can ketosis actually be beneficial in some way for someone like me?

Thanks a million times over for your help,

Hot Headed Keto Mama Mandy

2. What does it mean to “eat to satiety” on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love your podcasts Keto Talk and Fasting Talk! Thank you for providing such a valuable service. I’ve read Keto Clarity and The Complete Guide To Fasting, but I don’t recall if this issue was specifically addressed: What exactly does it mean to “eat to satiety”? What does this actually look and feel like? I can’t really wrap my head around what you are saying by the phrase and would greatly appreciate it if you share more about this. I’m really looking forward to reading the book you guys are working on called The Keto Cure coming in September and I’ve already pre-ordered my copy.

Take care,

Meg

3. What happens to ketone levels when you begin to consume more carbohydrates/protein than your body needs? Immediate or gradual drop in blood ketones?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the show! I listen during my runs and while strength training. Regarding the issue of too many carbs or too much protein, is the relationship between ketone levels and carbs a step function or a linear relationship? If I eat one gram too many of carbohydrates and/or protein, will that kick me out of ketosis completely or does it slowly drop depending on how much extra carbs and protein I eat? In other words, if my blood ketone levels were at 1.4 before eating an extra gram of carbs or protein than my body needs, does that immediately kick me out of ketosis or do ketones merely fall?

Thanks!

KETO TALK MAILBOX

- Why do low-carb, high-fat experts refer to carbs as the body’s preferred fuel source and ketones as an alternative fuel source? Isn’t excess glucose a toxin?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I love the geek speak on Keto Talk and I can't get enough of it. You guys do a wonderful job, so please keep it up. My question is about carbohydrate being referred to as the preferred energy source for the body. I hear this statement frequently and I even hear it from LCHF people/experts like yourselves saying that "carbs are the body's preferred fuel source and fat/ketones are an alternative fuel source.”

People who say this use the logic that the body switches to using carbs first and therefore it must be "preferred.” When I read what happens when you ingest alcohol, the body shuts off/slows down fat and carb usage and switches to burning the alcohol. Alcohol is a toxin and it floats around in the blood and goes to organs including the brain which is why we feel drunk until the liver can detoxify it. So as an energy source it isn't "preferred" but the preference for the body is to get rid of it.

Switching back to carbs/glucose which we know can be toxic at high doses and the pancreas has to pump out more insulin to prevent that from happening, by default the body converts any excess glucose into fats and stores them in the body. In my eyes, I see that as the same as alcohol and not as a "preferred energy source" but barely even an alternative energy source. Can you please clarify this for me?

Thank you for all you do,

Tom

Andrew Scarborough - Brain Cancer survivor thanks to the ketogenic diet and other therapies - Here’s the relevant passage:
 
“There is even a book coming out soon called 'Keto Cure', which I feel is an irresponsible title and ironically will serve as more of a hindrance to this research rather than support it. I like Jimmy Moore as a person, but there is no way I can support this endeavour and would like to take this opportunity to distance myself from anything like this. I use my words very carefully and cautiously on purpose. You will notice that I will never say the word 'cure', because I believe these therapies do not cure, but have the potential to manage the condition as you would with a chronic disease. I see it as being like HIV in how we must think of treating it, with multiple agents targeting multiple metabolic pathways and supporting the immune system. There is clearly a strong role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, drugs targeting metabolic defects, and both nutritional and supplemental methods of inducing ketosis in all of this that would need to be personalised for the individual's tumour type and their unique physiology. Nothing works in isolation and the ketogenic diet on its own is certainly not a 'cure all', as some like to market it.”
 
- The long nightmare witch hunt that Professor Tim Noakes has had to endure in a South African courtroom is now mercifully over--Verdict: NOT GUILTY!
This #lowcarb #highfat diet proponent and Real Meal Revolution author had been in and out of court since The Association of Dietetics there filed a complaint with the Health Professions Council over a tweet Noakes made about weaning a baby onto an LCHF nutritional approach. Anyone who had been following this story realizes this was a personal vendetta against Noakes who is deeply revered in South Africa for his promotion of the life-changing low-carb, high-fat #Banting diet.
The HPCSA announced today that they found no proof of unprofessional conduct by Noakes for that advice requested by a breastfeeding mother on Twitter. They ruled Noakes was not acting as a medical professional but as the author of a book on LCHF instead. When the verdict of this trial came down, Prof. Noakes raised his fist in the air before breaking down holding his head in his hands. All of us in the #ketogenic community owe this great man a huge debt of gratitude for his courage to stand up for what is right. We're at a crossroads right now in the #nutrition debate where people are finally doubting the veracity of the failed #lowfat diet approach. Hopefully this verdict empowers and reinvigorates others to speak out even stronger in favor of a diet that greatly improves health through the lowering of inflammation and insulin levels.

- If you don’t have any metabolic health issues to deal with, then why would going keto be any better than a raw vegan diet?
 
Dear Jimmy and The Doc,
 
I think my question for you may be slightly cheeky, but here it is. Listening to vegan advocates like Durianrider of 30 Bananas A Day fame, it seems he is quite convinced and determined to stand by his raw vegan lifestyle and this got me thinking—why are all of his blood markers, body fat, and energy levels so good if everything he believes about nutritional health is exactly the opposite of what we know and understand about keto? I am a 34 year old male, 6' tall and weigh 185 pounds. I have never had poor health, been obese, been pre-diabetic, or had any of the other metabolic issues that drive most people to a low-carb, high-fat diet. So why would going keto be a good thing for someone like me? I am sincerely asking this because Durianrider and his raw vegan approach seems to make a compelling argument to go that route to get even leaner. With all the criss-cross availability of nutritional info flying around the web, I find myself suddenly becoming very confused.
 
Can you help?
 
Best regards,

1. Is it true that lowering your carb intake while eating a ketogenic diet lower mucus production leads to dry eyes?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles!
 
I’m so happy I found this podcast and have been binge listening ever since. Keto Talk is a breath of fresh air compared to all the contradictory information floating around out there. I'm trying to get keto-adapted again and this time I plan on doing it for the long haul. I do pretty good getting into ketosis no problem. I can always tell when my blood sugar levels aren't zig zagging, I’m needing less sleep, and my cravings and hunger are manageable.
 
I’ve noticed that when I drop my carbohydrate intake to less than 30g a day to be ketogenic, my eyes becomes severely dry. I can't open then at all in the middle of the night and end up having to use eye drops immediately upon waking up and that stings like the dickens. I've gone to see my eye doctor about this and everything checks out okay. I've read from various people online that decreasing carbs lowers mucus production. Is this true? If so, then is there anything I can do to deal with this issue while keto? I have 20 bottles of eye drops tucked away in every nook and cranny of my home because I can't live without them!
 
I've been waiting for the right ketogenic resource for a long time and you guys are it! Thanks for all you do!

2. What can my Type 2 diabetic ketogenic-eating mom taking insulin do to wean herself off the insulin to help in her weight loss efforts?
 
Hi Jimmy and Adam! 
 
My family has been doing keto for a few months and we’re all loving the health improvements we're experiencing. My 37-year old brother has lost almost 50 pounds, I’ve lost lost 25, and my 68-year old dad almost 20. Both my parents are Type 2 diabetics and their A1c has gone down. My dad was only on Metformin and his doctor has said he can go off medication now that his A1c is 5.4. But my 65-year old mom has been on insulin for over 10 years and has not been able to lower her dosage of 40 units of long-lasting insulin in the morning and 8 units of fast-acting insulin with each meal despite the fact her blood sugar levels are regularly under 120. Initially after going keto, she was able to discontinue the insulin she was taking with meals and still get her blood sugar down to 85. However, recently her blood sugar has been creeping back up again to around 120 requiring her to start taking insulin with meals again. 
 
My question for you is this: why would she need that much insulin in a day if she is staying below 20g of carbs with only moderate protein? My mom meticulously tracks her food intake on a daily basis. Of all of us in the family, she is the only one who hasn’t seen great weight loss success (just 10 pounds in several months) and I think it has something to do with the insulin she is taking. She’s much hungrier than the rest of us are if she doesn’t eat by the clock throughout the day. What can she do to reduce her need to take insulin and rev up her weight loss efforts? She’s quite discouraged right now. 
 
Thanks for all you do…you're literally saving lives!

3. Does a ketogenic diet help improve or completely heal rosacea?
 
Hi Jimmy and the Doc,
 
I’ve never heard you guys address rosacea (reddening of the nose, the cheeks near the nose, and the center above the forehead) on the show before, so here’s my question. I have this condition and these areas become very dry. When I first started eating keto, the condition went away quickly but then slowly returned. I measure my blood ketone levels and they stay between 1.5-2.5 mmol. Can a low-carb, high-fat diet help heal my rosacea?
 
Thanks,

- What is the mechanism of insulin resistance? Why does it take some people a long time to reverse insulin resistance despite going keto?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,
 
I have a geekish question about insulin resistance for The Doc to get all nerdy on. What exactly is the actual mechanism of insulin resistance?  It seems to me there are at least two components involved: 
 
1) The number or conformation of the insulin receptors on cell membranes are reduced or changed so that insulin cannot signal particular cells.  This seems to happen at different rates in different tissue types (i.e. muscle cells typically become insulin resistant with a lowering of the number of receptors or change conformation before fat cells)
 
2) It seems that some people tend to be "hyper-secretors" of insulin.  In other words, their beta cells secrete more insulin than someone else with the exact same glucose load.  
 
I understand how lowering blood glucose and thus insulin will help to correct the low receptor numbers because as the insulin goes down the cells will upregulate the insulin receptors (they will listen more carefully because insulin is whispering). But what can be done about the hyper-secretion of insulin? Does lowering the body burden of insulin also influence the beta cells to secrete less insulin? And why does it take so long in some people to see their insulin resistance reverse even after months or years of ketogenic eating? Finally, why are some people prone to insulin resistance and others seem almost immune to it no matter what they eat?
 
Thanks for the great podcast.  I look forward to it every week.
 
Stay geeky,
 
William

- Am I getting severe leg cramps from my high-carb cheats or from working out my legs while in a ketogenic state?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been low-carb/keto for the past two years. A few months ago I started getting pretty severe leg cramps that would wake me up at night. I lift heavy weights 2-3 days a week and I noticed I would tend to get the leg cramps a few hours after leg workouts. To help with the leg cramps, every night before bed I mix an electrolyte drink of 5g of magnesium, 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp of potassium. I also try to have a cup of homemade bone broth daily and add more salt to it as well. When I drink the electrolyte drink daily, my leg cramps do not occur.

Whenever I have any sort of high-carb cheat meal, within an hour or two I get severe leg cramping. I have been strict keto of 20g total carbs and moderate protein of between 60-90g since March 2017. I have tested my blood ketones and I am getting readings of 0.5-0.8 mmol. I cheated last Sunday on Easter chocolates and three hours later I had severe leg cramps yet again. I also just returned from a two-day hiking event and took my electrolyte supplement both days.

I am sore today but do you think the leg cramps is from the hiking or the high-carb load? I just find it suspicious and almost predictable that if I cheat, the leg cramps come on. Any insight is appreciated.

Thank you,

Sara

1. Can a ketogenic diet help delay the onset of hair loss from Male Pattern Baldness?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I've only really discovered podcasts in 2016. I guess I'm just old-school for a 29-year-old. Since discovering your podcast, it has literally taken center stage in my life. Thank you for ALL the incredible answers, insights, and obvious passion for keto! You really keep me and my fellow Ketonians inspired! My question for you is about Male Pattern Baldness. I've come to understand that through ketosis, testosterone levels go up, so could being in ketosis beginning in my 20’s with no signs of hair loss yet actually prevent hair loss? Is there any research about this?

Thanks for all your wisdom on all things keto!!!

Best,

Armand

2. Can eating keto produce a false elevated white blood cell count?

Hello Jimmy & Doc Nally,

I enjoy your show and am learning so much from you guys after being keto for a couple of years. I wanted to ask you about something my family doctor has brought to my attention over the past year or so. He has told me three times that I have a raised white blood count. He initially thought that I might have a bladder infection. I had no symptoms of illness, so this shocked me to hear this from my doctor. Is there any connection between eating keto and having a false elevated white blood cell count? Have you ever seen this before?

Thanks for your help with this question and I look forward to a lot more Keto Talk!

Lynn

3. Can you go into more details about why some Ketonians deal with a pounding irregular heart rate and corresponding sleep issues?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Back in Episode 37, you answered a question about heart rate and sleep. But the answer did not identify the problem nor did it give a solution. I am having the same irregular pounding of my heart and sleep loss since I started keto. Normally you guys do research and give an answer that explains the cause behind the issues asked about and then you share what to do about it. But it seems like you swept the problem under the rug and gave a ”there's something else going on" response. But I’m sure a lot of other people have this problem and it deserves a real answer. I live keto and won't go back to my previous diet, but I still want to solve the pounding irregular heart rate and sleep problems since going keto.

Thank you for all your help and energy spent to spread the keto message,

Linda

- Is there a way to quantify the amount of ketones being burned and used by the body? What percentage of ketones go to the various parts of the body?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Loved meeting you guys at the Metabolic Therapeutics conference in Tampa, Florida earlier this year. I wanted to ask a question about how to quantify the ketone bodies being produced at any given time. The problem with testing blood ketones is it only gives you a snapshot of the ketones being produced in the blood, but not necessarily what is being burned at any given moment. Over time once you become keto-adapted, beta-hydroxybutyrate levels decrease ostensibly because they are being used more efficiently. In other words, a 1.0 mmol blood ketone reading of something who has been eating keto for a couple of years might actually be identical to a keto newbie getting a reading of 6.0 mmol. So, how can we measure the amount of ketones being burned and their distribution to the various parts of the body, especially the brain? Is there any way to know what percentage of ketones go to the various functions in the body?

I look forward to hearing what you have to share about my questions.

Elena

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for putting my question on the air in Episode 60 where I shared about the atrocious low-fat, high-carb diet they wanted me to eat for my fatty liver. I wanted to update you on my appointment with the surgeon last Wednesday. He insisted I eat that diet they recommended to shrink my liver enough to have surgery in May. But I am sticking with the ketogenic approach that I know works for this. My blood sugar is down to 83 mg/dL and I’ve had no hunger and feel so much better. Thank you for such an inspiring podcast.

Best wishes,

- Torn between low-fat or low-carb diets

- Can consuming foods high in saturated fat lead to an increase in endotoxin levels?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

What do you guys think about Brad Pilon’s take on saturated fats and endotoxins.

Gregg

Email comments from Brad Pilon:

In research, a super reproducible way to increase a person's endotoxin levels is to make them drink 3/4 of a cup of heavy cream.

Drink some cream that's high in saturated fat and 1 hour later all the markers of endotoxin damage skyrocket.

In fact, ANY MEAL that is high in saturated fat can create this type of endotoxin impact.

Endotoxins come from your gut bacteria and are associated with inflammation, arthritis, atherogenesis, insulin resistance, weight gain and even depression. You want to do what you can to protect yourself from endotoxins entering your body.

So should you avoid saturated fats like the devil? Are all those Paleo people wrong?

No.

You just have to make sure you have some fruit or fruit juice - This simple step will help prevent the rise in endotoxins, and the damage that they cause.

If you’re having bacon and eggs, have some orange slices.

Having Creme Brule? Have some Blueberries too.

Easy Peasy.

1. Should I be concerned with a higher level of Firmicutes in my gut health which supposedly puts me at a greater risk for obesity?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I’ve been a listener since the first episode and enjoy listening to your podcast. I’ve gained so many valuable insights and appreciate the immense support you bring us as community of “Ketonians.” I have a question that I don’t think you’ve covered yet regarding intestinal microbiome and keto. I recently had my gut bacteria analyzed by Ubiome that indicated a major skew in the direction of more Firmicutes compared with Bacteroidetes at a 5.8:1 ratio. According to their commentary on my results, this makes more more susceptible to obesity.

So my question is this: Should I be concerned about this seemingly poor ratio of Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes that has happened since I started eating ketogenic? Or is this association of a preponderance of Firmicutes with a higher risk of obesity only hold up in the context of the Standard American Diet where we know eating too much fat in the presence of high amounts of refined carbs frequently result in obesity? Thanks for your help with this question.

2. How can eat keto when I have Variegate porphyria requiring me to eat more carbohydrates in my diet?

Hi Jimmy,

I love your Keto Talk podcast so much it overrides all other podcasts for me. In 2014, I made a commitment to get healthy at the age of 64 after a career in IT with a poor diet, lifestyle, and genetic issues that put me in a very unhealthy state. Eating a Paleo/primal diet, I am now down 30 pounds from my highest weight and all of my key blood markers are good with the exception of LDL and total cholesterol. But I’m afraid I can’t eat keto because I have hemochromatosis (high iron) and Variegate porphyria. Eating primal has significantly improved my iron overload, liver enzymes, and the time between needing to do a phlebotomy. While my iron overloaded liver seems to love low-carb, high-fat, my porphyria doesn't. I visited the Mayo Clinic to confirm the porphyria diagnosis I was told to eat 400g carbs daily. With the primal lifestyle I usually eat around 150-200 grams carb per day. However when I try to go lower than that the porphyria kicks in and I get increased pain and complications in the muscle and nerve tissues. It seems porphyria needs carbs which runs counter to my desire to be ketogenic. Is there a way for me to eat keto while also eating to feed the porphyria? Thank you for your help.

Debbie

3. If you spread the carbs out throughout the day, does that create a lower insulin release?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

Do people in general have less of an insulin release if carbs are spread out over the course of the day then eating them all at once? When I use to eat a normal carb diet, the theory was to eat smaller portions as a means of keeping insulin levels low. Would something like this help for someone who is very insulin resistant? I'm fairly insulin sensitive, so I use keto to stay healthy. I've been eating keto for about four months and enjoy doing n=1 experiments to see how my body reacts to any changes I make. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank for all the info you guys provide to us and I always look forward to your new episodes. I wish you guys would create a forum for your large Ketonian community to talk to each other and find out what topics are hot in the world of keto.

Your faithful listener,

Matthew

- Do I need to eat a high-carb diet prior to visiting a very high elevation for a few weeks to utilize oxygen better?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Nally,

Thank you for such an informative and funny podcast. It's such a great companion for me on my long drives. I have a question on doing keto while at high altitude. I live close to sea level and will be going on a business trip to a place at 17,000 feet above sea level soon for a total of 2 1/2 weeks. The client has advised us that we need to eat a high carb diet (75% carbs) in order to use oxygen efficiently at that elevation. My understanding is that when we are in ketosis we don't need to be as concerned with absorption of oxygen as we don't need it for the fermentation process to produce energy from glucose. Is this correct? If not, should I be eating high-carb in preparation for this this? Also, do you have advice on how to optimize energy levels in this situation?

Much regards,

Sorina

Our thoughts on KetoKademy event in Orlando, Florida

Article in the Southwest Airlines March 2017 magazine:

 

 

- Why do I have such an insatiable hunger on my ketogenic diet? Is it hormone related?

Dear Jimmy & Adam,

We actually found your Keto Talk podcast by accident as my partner and I were recommended to listen to another keto podcast and found yours by mistake instead. We’re so glad we did as we’ve listened to nearly every episode and love it. Keep up the awesome work.

I have Hashimoto's, so I am keen to see if keto can help with controlling my thyroid and hormones. I am 32 years old, 5’7”, and weigh 168 pounds. I lost 22 pounds on the hCG diet, but need a more sustainable way of eating to keep the weight off. My question for you is about this insatiable hunger I felt during Phase 2 of hCG that has continued with keto. I thought it would subside with all the fat I’m eating, but it has not. All I can think about is finding more food, especially meat and fat. This food obsession is unrelenting and I’m at a loss about what to do. I’m continuing to gain weight and I’m frustrated by this.

My supplement intake includes Magnesium, Selenium (to help with Estrogen), activated B complex, Adrenotone (Adrenal herbal supplement to assist with Adrenals), high dosage Vitamin C (ph balanced variety), probiotics and a colloidal mineral complex. I also take Desiccated Thyroid Extract 45mg and naturally derived progesterone cream (applied from day 12 of cycle to menses). I drink plenty of water (about 3-4 liters per day), eat plenty of salt, and consume lots of raw organic grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. I steer clear of dairy due to the rapid weight gain I get from it with the exception of butter. My urine ketones are on the low end, so I realize that’s probably part of the reason for my struggle.

I understand this insatiable hunger is somehow hormone related, but I am wondering if you are able to explain further what might be going on and what physiological processes are going on to cause this. Thank you so much for what you do! I am in awe of your wealth of knowledge and appreciate what you are doing for all us Ketonians out there.

Take care and keto on!

1. Can a ketogenic diet help health the fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome brought on by deficient hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

You guys are transforming lives with your podcast and you’ve made me feel like a keto evangelist when the topic comes up in my circles. You are to carbaholics what AA is to alcoholics. I have Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome and using the ketogenic diet over the past 4 months has enabled me to improve these conditions greatly.

I got Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue while doing daily cycling training rides for up to 3 hours after work while being deficient in Testosterone, Growth Hormone, and Thyroid issues as a result of having Empty Sella Syndrome. The stress of that combination has set me up for this illness. Sadly my diet was loaded with carbage for decades and thankfully I’m now 100% ketogenic for life at the age of 49. My hope is keto will help me recover along with appropriate hormone replacement. Is this possible?

Thanks guys!

David

2. Will consuming 30g carbs or less with IF cause me to halt or rev up my weight loss efforts?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’m a healthy 34-year old Ketonian and need your help to clear up some confusion I’ve been hearing about keto and intermittent fasting. A nurse practitioner at a low-carb clinic told me that doing IF and going below 30g carbs daily will halt your weight loss. Another Ketonian says daily IF with 20g carbs daily for at least 30 days will help jumpstart my weight loss again. I’m currently keto-adapted and have been for quite a long time. Thanks so much for your help!

3. Should I be concerned that my ketone levels are so high early on in my ketogenic journey?

Hi Jimmy and Doc!

Loving your podcasts and listen on my daily walks! I am new to keto and learning everything I can about it soaking it in like a sponge. My question is regarding ketone levels. On Day 5 of starting my ketogenic diet, my ketones were high in the afternoon at around 8 using the Ketostix. I made sure I was plenty hydrated and my urine was clear. I tested again a couple of days later in the morning right after waking up and my ketones were also high. I Googled and searched all over to find any information about why I am experiencing such a high reading like this. Do I need to eat more carbs than the 10-12g daily I am currently eating? I feel fantastic and have tons of energy after having only a couple of days of the keto flu. I consume around 1400 calories a day and stick to 60g protein and 100g fat. I’m loving the food I get to eat now, but these higher ketone levels concern me. Should I be concerned?

- Is there an age that is too old to be on a ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been enjoying eating keto as a 72-year old woman and I have been blessed with excellent health and no medications. Despite being overweight, I have perfect health markers. I probably need to lose 50 pounds and I’m working on finding a local physician to help guide me on my ketogenic diet. One of the employees at this one clinic told me a woman my age should never be in ketosis. Am I too old to be ketogenic?

Thank you in advance,

Scientists turn spinach leaf into working heart tissue

I Went 100 Percent Carb-Free for a Month: Here’s What Happened

- Is an insulin sensitive person always in ketosis? Why do ketones go up post-meal? Are they burning both fat and glucose simultaneously?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

This is such a great podcast with down-to-earth, balanced, science-supported factual information about the use of a ketogenic lifestyle for healthy living. There is so much conflicting information out there and I trust you guys to keep things straight. I am fortunate to have changed my diet before any loss of insulin sensitivity. For the past couple of years, my husband and I have consumed a real foods-based Paleo template diet with moderate carbohydrate intake since we don’t have to be as careful about carb amounts as others since we are at a healthy normal weight. I am grateful for this! We do intermittent fasting and I consume one BIG lunch meal while my husband has two meals plus an evening snack. I never get more than a little hungry.

I’ve always assumed with consistent energy levels and a general lack of hunger that I was burning fat for fuel and making ketones. But after hearing you guys underscore the importance of testing for ketosis just to make sure and not assume, I got a Ketonix breath ketone analyzer. I’ve been using it to test the impact of food, exercise, and fasting on blood sugar and ketones. I've never had a Ketonix reading below 45 and it's even gotten into the 70s. We pushed it one night having a 3-ounce sugary chocolate bar and two hours post-prandial my blood sugar was back to 91 and ketones at 59. I love insulin sensitivity!

Here are my questions for you guys that I think other insulin-sensitive people may want to know about: Does it mean that I’m actually in ketosis all of the time when my blood sugar and ketones come back into line so quickly? And why do my ketones go UP after meals? You’d think the increase in blood sugar would diminish ketone production, but they always go up post-meal. Is it possible my body is so accustomed to burning fat for fuel that I’m burning BOTH fat and glucose simultaneously?

Thank you for helping everyone understand the benefits of being in a state of nutritional ketosis. You guys are terrific! Thanks so much for answering my questions.

Diet ‘reverses diabetes in just 10 weeks’, claims new study

1. Does having an APOE genotype of 3/4 make eating a ketogenic diet impossible because of cardiovascular risks?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thanks so much for Keto Talk. As a Masters of Nutrition student in Australia, I've been finding it fascinating mainly because as I'm learning more and more about nutrition, physiology, hormones and the body's response to different nutrients, the more a ketogenic diet just makes sense, especially for diabetes and obesity patients. I'm dumbfounded by how doctors treat insulin-resistant patients by giving them insulin, it just doesn't make any sense. The more I learn, the more I'm personally drifting away from what they're teaching me at Uni.

I currently eat a whole foods diet consisting mainly of non-starchy veggies, moderate protein and higher fat than the standard diet. I've not yet dabbled into keto yet, but I am interested in trying it for the mental clarity everyone talks about as well as helping me deal with some psoriasis. I have a question for you guys about my genes impacting my nutritional choices. I am an APOE 3/4 which supposedly puts me at high risk for cardiovascular disease and it is recommended that I eat a lower fat diet with a fat/protein/carbohydrate ratio of 20/25/55 while minimizing saturated fat and processed carbohydrates as well as consuming antioxidant-rich foods. Am I doomed to eat this way or can someone with a APOE 3/4 eat keto without putting themselves at risk for heart disease?

Thanks again for all the great work guys, keep it up!

2. Should I feel guilty about eating a ketogenic diet because of the high gas emissions produced in the creation of keto staple foods?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I realize you both have chickens and grow your own veggies in your home garden, so your ketogenic diets are at least partially environmentally sustainable. Because of the high amount of gas emissions caused by the creation of beef, butter, and many of the other keto staples, I’m finding myself feeling guilty about consuming this diet. I realize all the information about the health benefits of keto, but I am wondering if you two could comment on the environmental sustainability of the diet and any tips for improving it?

Thanks,

Nate

3. Why would you want to eliminate eggs and dairy from your ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

I love Keto Talk because it provides so much clarity! I love your books Keto Clarity and The Ketogenic Cookbook because they make this life so simple! Recently I came across a book from JJ Virgin on food intolerance where she encourages people to eliminate eggs and dairy. But these seem to be a really healthy fat and one or both of these are used in almost every ketogenic recipe out there. What is your view on eliminating these and why would you do that?

Best Regards,

Lydia

- Can a ketogenic diet help with fatty liver reduction?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a brand new listener to your podcast and desperately need your advice. I’ve got a bariatric appointment coming up next week and have already had one abandoned gastric sleeve due to my liver starting to tear when they tried to move it. The very low-calorie diet they had me on previously (see below) was terrible and left me craving carbs all day. Would a ketogenic diet help with my fatty liver reduction?

In the last week, I have reduced my fasting glucose down from 232 to 168 by going low-carb/high-fat. I am taking a Milk Thistle supplement, BerberinePlus, Choline and Lecithin. I currently weigh 341 pounds and my psoriasis on my hand has virtually disappeared. Thanks to going keto, I have had no carb cravings in the past week. Once I have had my surgery, I plan on following low-carb/keto for life. Between the reduced appetite of the operation and ketosis, I will be unstoppable.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

The Scientist Harnessing 'Toxic Fat'

- Why is The Doc so obsessed with bacon when it includes sugar in the ingredients?

Hello Jimmy and Doc,

I've been listening to Keto Talk almost every day since I’ve found you. Thank you very much for this very valuable resource. I gotta ask you something that’s been bugging me, though—what's up with The Doc's love of bacon? Every bacon package I've ever looked at has sugar, maple syrup, or both in the ingredients list. Is the sugar amount so negligible that we don’t need to worry about it?

Thank you for explaining this to me.

1. Where did the extra 4,000 calories worth of energy come from to power my hiking excursion when I only consumed 2,000 calories?

Dear Jimmy and Adam,

I really appreciate how Keto Talk helps listeners put the science of ketogenic living into practice. The fact that you two live what you teach is awesome. I listened to some of your shows when I was doing my N=1 experiment of a 30-mile hiking adventure powered mostly by ketones. Almost no carbs were consumed doing this—just water, MCT oil, and some exogenous ketones along with a low-carb meal in the evening. At the end of the experiment, I felt great. Although I love to run I walked for this experiment at a steady heart-rate of 100 to 115 BPM. My question for you is this: While I burned around 6,000 calories according to my FitBit data, I consumed only about 2,000 calories mostly from leafy greens, olive oil, macadamia nuts, eggs, coconut oil, and MCT oil to satiety. How did I burn 6,000 calories while only consuming 2,000 calories in my diet?

Thanks! I’m Keto4Life!

2. What happened to that mental clarity and improved mood that I experienced from my ketogenic diet early on? How do iI get them back?

Hey guys,

I’m a 34-year old male and have been keto for a little more than a year and have lost 40 pounds while improving health issues with my thyroid, blood pressure, and cholesterol. I check my ketone levels often and my energy is better than it has been in a decade. My question for you is regarding the mental clarity and uplifted mood that I initially enjoyed when I started keto. After the initial boost in my brain health, I feel like I’m back at baseline again with mental fog and a flat mood. I take a daily multivitamin as well as a combination of magnesium, potassium, and calcium supplements. Other than the occasional MCT oil or exogenous ketones for my workouts, I don't take any other medications or supplements. Do you have any thoughts on why my brain health benefits from being in ketosis have seemingly disappeared?

3. If I’m healthy and want to splurge with carbs on a cruise, will my body quickly become fat-adapted again? Or will I need to start all over again?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you so much for keeping this podcast going! I have a question I haven’t heard an answer to yet and I’d love to have you and Doc Nally chime in about it. I’m a very active 21-year old, lifting weights 3-4 times a week, and doing some form of cardio 2-3 times a week. I’m new to keto and I have noticed slightly less energy during some workouts while my body is still adapting to using fat as fuel instead of carbs. I am confident after listening to your podcast that the shift from sugar burner to fat burner will happen smoothly in due course.

So, here’s my tricky question: I have a cruise coming up in a few months when I’ll most certainly be fat-adapted by then. On the cruise I know there will be a wealth of fresh fruits, fancy drinks, as well as other carb-heavy treats. I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for a while and I don’t see why I shouldn’t enjoy a week of indulging in “carbage” as I don’t have any health worries at all. So here’s what I want to know—after this week of very high carbohydrate eating, will I have to start completely from scratch again or will my body quickly switch back to using fat for fuel when I commence eating keto? I don’t care too much about having to go through a week of feeling tired and not 100%, but will it take another 1-2 months like the first time? I really don’t want to go through all of that again.

Thank you for your feedback!

- Why hasn’t my insulin resistance improved as a Type 1 diabetic when I’m seemingly doing everything right?

Hi guys,

Great show and thank you for putting out amazing content on a weekly basis. I'm a Type 1 diabetic who suffered a heart attack about a year ago. I switched my diet to a plant-based vegan diet initially and then transitioned into a vegan ketogenic diet. My question for you guys is why has my insulin resistance seemingly increased on the ketogenic diet? My level of Lantus and Novo rapid insulin has nearly tripled. I used to eat 6 meals a day of high-protein, low-carb, and medium fat. I now eat 2-3 meals a day in the proper ketogenic ratios consisting of 120-150g protein, 30-50g carbs, and around 200g fat. My ketone levels have been between 1-2.5 mmol on my blood ketone meter. I seem to be doing everything right but can't get my insulin resistance in order. I'm pretty sure that inflammation was what caused my heart attack as my cholesterol levels were very low. So my main focus of going keto is to reduce this inflammation. Do you have any idea what is going on that I don’t seem to be getting better on keto?

Thank you for you help.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 58:

Female prisoners demand less 'carb heavy' foods and moan they're served too many pizzas, pasta, and chips

- How is it possible for someone eating a ketogenic diet to go into a state of ketoacidosis? Should I be concerned?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I have been a BIG supporter of LCHF and keto for years. I personally follow low-carb and have found it to be the only diet that prevents me from binge eating. It has given me a freedom with food I never knew I could have. I was at brunch with a friend who is a nurse yesterday and was talking about how frustrated I am with the way that diabetes is currently managed by doctors and nurses here in Australia. But many dietitians and medical practitioners are too scared of speaking up about ketogenic diets out of fear of having their license pulled. My nurse friend told me she had a patient who only ate bacon and eggs in very small amounts and had to be admitted to the ER with ketoacidosis with ketones at 7.0 mmol. According to my friend, a dietitian who was involved in her care said to her, "I hate this stupid keto diet, there have been so many cases of this happening in the past few years." I was a bit gobsmacked given that the chance of someone with a normally functioning pancreas developing this seems impossible because insulin would prevent this from happening. But then I Googled this and found a case study of where this had also occurred to a woman: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc052709#t=article

I am really perplexed by the whole issue of how ketoacidosis could possibly happen in someone eating a ketogenic diet. This just doesn't make any sense to me. I'd love it if you could discuss this on your show.

I love Keto Talk so much and I never miss an episode!

Kind regards,

Emily from Australia

1. Can something in the ketogenic diet or ketosis itself have an impact on your voice to make it more raspy?

Hey, what's up guys? I’m a 36-year old Ketonian from Alaska and have been on the ketogenic diet for the past four months losing a total of 50 pounds. I have a weird question for you that I haven’t seen covered anywhere—can ketosis have an impact on your voice? I’m noticing that my voice has been a bit more raspy since starting the diet where it feels like I’m about to lose it. This always forces me to clear my throat but it has little to no effect. Does this have something to do with my beloved buttered coffee or something else in my ketogenic diet?

Thanks for the show…you guys are killing it!

2. Is simply cutting carbs and eating more fat in my diet enough without having to go full-fledged keto?

Hey guys, I’m totally new to this whole keto concept and not ready to dive all the way in just yet. I love a lot of what you say on this podcast and I found reading Dr. David Perlmutter’s book Grain Brain was a real eye opener. My question is whether simply reducing carbs a little to more of a moderate carbohydrate diet can make enough difference in my health without having to be so severely limited as happens when you go ketogenic. I’m a bona fide carboholic but not overweight. I just want to be healthier and fitter. If I replace my carb heavy choices with lower carb, higher fat ones instead, can I expect to experience the health gains you talk about on Keto Talk? Maybe I’ll try keto someday if you think I need it.

Thanks for all you do,

3. What non-scale victories should I be looking for when weight loss stalls while eating keto? Is a weight set point real or not?

Hi guys!

Your podcast accompanies me to and from work during the week and I enjoy all of the great insights Doc Nally has from his clinical experience. In Episode 16, The Doc mentioned that the rate of weight loss is rapid initially (5-15 pounds a month the first 3 months), then slows to a comparative crawl (2-5 pounds a month) thereafter. He said there is a high probability of a weight loss stall and I’m currently in the midst of that for the past year.

I am active on several low-carb message boards and see many, many people get frustrated by this slowing of their weight loss after rapidly losing a lot of weight in the first several months. Dr. Nally also said that if you have a lot of weight to lose, it can take several years to do it. I would love to hear more about this and any recommendations on what non-scale victories I should be looking for to keep me motivated.

I’ve talked about this with my low-carb doctor who says I am at my set point goal weight now and have nothing to worry about. Can you guys address the idea of a set point in your weight and whether I am worrying too much about this? Thanks so much and keep on ketoing on!

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I just want to say how much I love your podcasts! You guys just fit together in an awesome way and seem to be having the best time while delivering fantastic information! I am 57 years old and did keto a couple of years ago for about two months and lost 35 pounds. I went to my doctor who wasn’t against keto but he told me this was a difficult diet to stay on. This planted a seed in my mind and I ultimately quit my ketogenic diet because of it. I gained back all of the weight I had lost and have had a horrible time getting going again. My husband wants to eat everything in sight and that doesn’t help me get back on track. He had three stents in November and would greatly benefit from eating keto as well. I feel defeated and just needed to reach out to someone who KNOWS the truth. I am going to start again, but already have the mindset that I will fail. I know that won’t help me, but it’s where I’m at. How can I help myself and convince my 60-year old husband that he needs to do this too? Maybe if I can convince him this will help our love life he’d be willing to give it a try. I have to hit him with something important to him.

Thanks so much for your help,

Cathy

Diabetes Takes Biggest Bite Out of U.S. Health Care Spending

The top 10 most costly health expenses in 2013, according to the analysis, were:

  • Diabetes -- $101.4 billion.
  • Ischemic heart disease -- $88.1 billion.
  • Low back and neck pain -- $87.6 billion.
  • High blood pressure -- $83.9 billion.
  • Injuries from falls -- $76.3 billion.
  • Depression -- $71.1 billion.
  • Dental care -- $66.4 billion.
  • Vision and hearing problems -- $59 billion.
  • Skin-related problems -- $55.7 billion.
  • Pregnancy and postpartum care -- $55.6 billion.

- What is the metabolic pathway for dietary fat and dietary carbohydrate once consumed?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

How are fat and carbohydrates metabolized differently in the body once ingested? I want to hear Dr. Nally get all geeky in his answer on this one. What are the exact paths they follow, what enzymes are activated, what hormones are elevated, and anything else that happens when you consume these? By the way, Jimmy, I met you in Melbourne last year and you are actually an awesome bloke in person.

1. How does a ketogenic diet heal your digestive system? Would the bacteria from fermented foods help with this?

Hey guys,

In a previous episode from last year, The Doc mentioned that eating keto can help your digestive track heal. I have two questions about this:

1. How exactly does a ketogenic diet help to heal your digestive system? Is it by lowering inflammation?
2. It occurred to me that our not-so-ancient ancestors must have not wasted food even if it was going bad. Would getting adequate bacteria from fermented foods help a person improve their gut health and digestion as well?

Thanks for your podcast,

2. Can a ketogenic diet be the answer to lowering the inflammation from ulcerative colitis and gout?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I just recently discovered the wonderful world of podcasts and you guys are at the top of my list of favorites. I feel like a kid who just learned how to see when they get their first pair of glasses and the world begins to be crystal clear. Thanks for all you do to help navigate the very confusing world of nutrition and healthy living. I have a question that I believe is directly related to inflammation. After going gluten-free about four years ago, I’m now striving to be ketogenic to control my ulcerative colitis. Since this is an inflammatory disease, it seems keto would help with this. Am I right? As for my husband, he has gout and all the dietary suggestions from the medical world seem to be aggravating this issue for him. Would ketosis help him with this too since we don’t want to take medications?

Help!

3. Should I be concerned with my blood sugar levels going too low while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc!

I have been following an LCHF lifestyle for a few years and switched over to keto in October 2016. I've lost 6.5 kg (14 pounds) since then and have a little more to go to reach my goal weight. I weigh in once a week and test my fasting blood glucose and ketones on the same day to keep an eye on how I'm doing. My ketones fluctuate between 0.9-2.9 mmol. My blood glucose averages 3.8 mmol (68 mg/dL), but I've seen it as low as 2.8 mmol (50 mg/dL). Shouldn’t I be above 4 mmol (72 mg/dL) to be healthy? I’m almost never above 4 mmol! Should I be concerned? I have no symptoms of hypoglycemia but I’m not sure what to think about this.

Any guidance you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I love listening to Keto Talk. Thanks in advance for your answer.

- Why am I so hungry at night while eating keto and what can I do to avoid this?

I have been listening to numerous podcasts to develop my knowledge base on the keto way of eating and yours is awesome. Thank you for providing us Ketonians with such a great resource! I am SUPER new to keto and have been borderline diabetic for several years. I have been eating this way for about a month with my daily caloric intake around 1300. I am striving to eat a fat/protein/carb intake of 80/15/5 and I track this voraciously online.

The past two weeks have been SO hard for me and I have given in to eating more than two or three portions of pork rinds twice. I have tried a variety of things to overcome this hunger by drinking more water, eating fat bombs, consuming celery and cheese, and going to bed earlier—all without success. I am pretty discouraged right now.

I am certain I have overlooked something important in succeeding with my weight loss journey and I am rather surprised by this because I felt fine the first two weeks with no hunger and lots of energy. What adjustments can I make to avoid evening hunger?

Thank you for all you do to provide great information through your podcasts! I’ll be listening!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 56:

Low carb-high fat diet difficult to sustain in the long term by Dr. Benjamin Lam

Our thoughts on a question asked by a reader in the Singapore newspaper called The Straits Times:

I am 17 and I have been on a ketogenic (low-carb high- fat) diet for a week. The results have been great so far. I've been losing weight steadily and this has been very encouraging.

However, I've heard that people gained 10kg more than their starting weight when they quit the diet. And even though they did not overeat, they were unable to shed the extra kilograms.

Do you think it is possible to stay on the keto diet and still eat carbs, though not as much as before, without gaining weight?

1. Can a ketogenic diet help someone with psoriatic arthritis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show and especially the experience that Dr. Nally has using keto with so many patients that he has worked with. I have a niece who was recently diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and I was wondering if The Doc has any experience with patients who have this condition and whether or not the ketogenic diet would help.

Thanks,

2. Can a ketogenic approach help lower body fat percentage for someone who is normal weight?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

I've got a question about using a keto diet to help someone lower their body fat percentage when they're already in the normal weight range. You guys often talk about keto diets in the context of someone who is currently overweight, obese, or suffering from disease. But what about those of us who simply want to achieve a leaner physique? Is the fat loss slower and does it require lower intake of food, extra exercise, or something else?

I am very curious how a ketogenic diet could help me achieve my fat loss goals. I'm a 5’2” female weightlifter, 135 pounds, and a body fat percentage of 29%. I have been doing a strict ketogenic diet for the past month, so I’m anxious to hear your answer to my questions.

Cheers,

Savannah

3. Is there any benefit to adding back in workout supplements to my exercise while eating keto?

Jimmy and The Doc,

I love the show and listen to each episode at least twice. There’s so much good information in them all. I have been following keto diet for the past three months and seeing great results so far. Even though all the meatheads in the gym have preached eating carbs to me for years, I am able to gain muscle and get leaner at the same time while in ketosis—and I’ve never felt better.

For years, gym rats have loaded our bodies with supplements that we take pre-workout, during workout, and post-workout. When starting keto, I quit using all supplements because I was unsure how they would impact me. Now, I have coffee with coconut oil and butter along with an egg yolk as a pre-workout snack and feel amazing in the gym. It makes me question the hundreds of dollars I have spent on pre-workout powders.

My question is this: Would there be any benefit to adding back in some creatine pre-workout or any other supplement to enhance my workouts or is a ketogenic diet alone sufficient for seeing the results I desire? The Internet is full of so much contradictory information about this that I’m just confused about what to do. I am excited to hear your thoughts about this and I appreciate all the work you two are doing.

Thanks again,

Jason

- What could be causing a burning sensation in my body when my blood glucose goes higher during keto?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love your podcast because you guys do such a great job. Keep it up! I have been eating keto for about a year. During the first six months, I felt great, lost body fat, and built a lot of muscle. But I started getting a burning sensation that would begin in my legs and then spread throughout my body. I have been measuring when this feeling comes on and when my blood glucose is in the 80s to low 90s, the symptoms are much less severe. I consume spinach with lots of butter, ground beef, eggs, and salami to get those blood sugar readings.

However, when my blood glucose is in the 100-120 range, the burning sensation is much worse. What makes my blood sugar reach this level is a cup of eggplant and zucchini. I’m not sure what could be causing this and I live in an area where ketone testing equipment is not available. Could there be a relationship between the higher blood sugar readings and this burning sensation?

Thank you in advance for all the help,

Dennys

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 55:

- Is it high-fat or moderate fat for weight loss on a ketogenic diet?

Hello my Ketonian mentors,

Thank you for what you do! This podcast has been invaluable as my husband and I started keto this new year. We're doing well, losing weight and inches, and feeling good! No keto flu or cravings and we’ve even formed a good group of Ketonians here on Okinawa for support and ideas.

Lipolysis and Why You Can Gain Weight Eating Too Much Fat

A friend just posted this article from Maria Emmerich and I'm really struggling between what Maria says and what you guys have said about how much fat to consume on a ketogenic diet. We don't do Bulletproof Coffee or fat bombs at all. Instead, we stick to real food but now we’re confused about what's right regarding fat consumption? We aim to lose weight and burn fat, but you say eat fat and Maria says to moderate it. So what’s the right answer? I appreciate your contribution to health and just wish I could get everyone I care about on board!

Arigato from Okinawa,

Tracie

 

- Does taking TRT injections inhibit your ability to get into ketosis and lose weight?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show and have been a listener from the first episode. I read Wheat Belly in December 2015 and stopped all grains and rice keeping carbs between 40-80g daily losing 35 pounds in four months and improving my reflux, IBS and other health issues. But then I noticed my energy became completely zapped to the point that I couldn’t get out of bed to workout anymore. I had my testosterone tested and it dropped below 200 in July 2016. My doctor said I have the testosterone of a 95-year old man. I began testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) with weekly injections and noticed my energy, drive, focus and capacity to exercise soared. But my weight also increased and now I can’t get into ketosis. I have consistently been in ketosis when I’ve measured in the morning and would stay in the state all day. I get that my body is recovering from a huge hormonal shock and I need to give it time to adapt. Is difficulty with weight loss and getting into ketosis normal for someone using TRT?

Thanks for your help,

Gareth

1. Is there something about ketosis that causes lymph nodes to swell?

Hi Jimmy,

My niece started low-carb keto and very easily switched from sugar burner to fat burner. At first she had no side effects and reacted very positive on this new lifestyle change, but then she noticed that her lymph nodes started swelling, especially in her neck. When I checked Dr. Google, I found something about the release of dead yeast cells (Candida) or even part of the keto flu. What can I do to help her with this? I told her to speak with her doctor about this, but I’m sure he’ll just tell her to stop her ketogenic diet.

Thank you for spreading the word and I love your show!

2. What can I do to determine the ideal level of carbohydrates I should be eating on my ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,,

I love your podcast and thank you for sharing your knowledge!

Here’s my question for you guys: I’m having trouble keeping my carbs to a level that is not too high and not too low. When I cut my carbs to get into ketosis, I tend to eat virtually zero. But doing that makes me start feeling horrible with headaches, so I add back in some carbs and it goes away. I’m trying to eat no more than 10g carbs per meal as a goal. So how can I determine what my “Goldilocks zone” of carbohydrate intake is?

Keep it up and thanks for answering my question!

3. Can dehydration give you a false boost in your ketone production?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

Thanks for doing such a fun and informative podcast! I’ve listened to al of them, sometimes twice if I need a refresher later. I have been keto for the past few months both for weight loss and health. I’ve been happy with the results so far with about a pound a week weight loss, less fatigue, more energy, and more wakefulness to take on the day. My Ketonix breath ketone device shows I am in ketosis pretty much constantly and I’m using this device to see how various foods and carb amounts impact my fat burning.

But now I have a question for you regarding the effect of dehydration on ketone production? My 6-year old caught me blowing into my Ketonix the other day and she wanted to blow into it too. Despite eating a very carb heavy diet, she showed moderate levels of ketosis. So it got me thinking why this would happen. Is she dehydrated? And for those of us purposely trying to get into ketosis, could drinking less water than normal fuel more ketone production and show false readings?

Any input would be great! Thanks for reading my email!

Sincerely,

Mailinn

- How does lack of sufficient sleep impact your ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally:

I suffer from chronic insomnia – I wake earlier than I want, or wake several times a night. Sometimes I fall asleep right away and sometimes I don’t. When I get up for the day, I generally feel less tired than I was when I went to bed even when I get more than 6 or 6.5 hours of sleep. I think 7.5 hours is my sweet spot. How does the lack of sufficient sleep impact your ketone levels? My guess is insomnia decreases ketones due to increased amounts of cortisol which raises blood sugar and insulin levels. Plus the stress of feeling tired all the time may lead to questionable nutritional choices.

Thanks for your help with this. I really love and look forward to every new episode of Keto Talk. Keep up the good work!

Katie

HOT TOPIC: LDL-P vs. Small LDL-P—which matters more?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

The age old debate of which is more important between LDL-P vs. LDL particle size rages on. There seems to be strong opinions from both sides of this issue and I’d love to have you guys discuss this on Keto Talk. It seems a lot of us Ketonians are hyper-responders to a ketogenic diet in our lipid panel and it’s concerning about whether those of us who have elevated LDL-P and LDL-C should consider moving away from LCHF.

Thank you and God bless you guys!

1. How do I explain to my doctor why my very high total cholesterol isn’t cause for concern?

I’m a 46-year old man and have been following low-carb keto for four years. My total cholesterol has risen to 383 while my triglycerides are below 100 and HDL is 77. My hsCRP is 0.2. My blood glucose ranges from 65 to 90 with ketones over 2.0, so I'm confident I'm doing well. My question is what do I say to my conventional doctor about my high total cholesterol when I go to see him for my regular physical. I usually just avoid seeing him and run the tests on my own so I don’t have to be lectured to. But I would rather use insurance to pay for these tests.

Thank you!

Leonard

 
 

2.  Can I take a low-dose statin to help lower my high LDL-P from eating a ketogenic diet?

Jimmy and Adam,

Thanks so much for all the great information you put out there! I'm a Type 1 diabetic, and my blood sugar numbers have been much easier to control since adopting a low-carb diet. I have both your Cholesterol and Keto Clarity books and have taken solace in them every time the doctors have tried pushing statins.

My latest test showed I had an LDL-P of 2300 and I’m now seriously considering taking a statin to deal with it. I really don't want to give up on my low-carb diet because the higher blood sugars are a more clear and present danger to me than my cholesterol. Should I play it safe and take a small dose statin to see what happens to my LDL-P? Would that be a good strategy for those of us who are concerned?

Thanks again for your help!

Jason

3. How is it possible that your triglycerides can go up when you eat keto?

Jimmy and Adam,

Is it possible to eat a strict ketogenic diet and triglycerides go up, not down? That’s exactly what happened to me. My triglycerides have gone through the roof beginning last Fall rising to 379 while my blood sugar levels dropped to 68 with strong blood ketones. My HDL cholesterol is 59 and all my other numbers are fantastic, but what’s going on with my triglycerides? I’m an oddball in the keto community because I’m a skinny guy at 5’8” tall and 130 pounds and so I never suspected my triglycerides would do this.

Perplexed, I decided to try an extended fast to see if that might help. In January, I completed an 84-hour fast, but my cholesterol test results were shocking:

Triglycerides: 379 - up from 279
Cholesterol: 343 - down from 359
LDL: 208 - down from 230
HDL: 59 - down from 73

So what the heck is up with my triglycerides? I know, I know, I know. You always talk about the cheating, Dr. Nally. But I swear on the graves of the saints that this was not happening. I am the NERD's NERD when it comes to tracking, data, and all that. I am meticulous and keep tons of data, including a food diary app I've had since before 2011, and countless spreadsheets. I have too much invested in my health to cheat.

One last thing to add is I've been going through a divorce for the past three years and it has been the most stressful time of my life. Is it possible this intense stress is having an impact on my lipids for them to become this deranged?I'm kinda at my wit's end, and would be forever grateful for any help you could provide.

Sincerely,

Sam

4. Why do keto-adapted athletes see rises in total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,,

I love this podcast and really appreciate all the work you guys put into it each week. People like Dr. Jeff Volek say that keto-adapted athletes will tend to have very high total cholesterol, high LDL’s and high HDL’s. I run 4-5 times a week and have seen this happen to me. My total cholesterol has gone from 202 to 303, LDL from 118 to 194, and HDL went from 72 to 92. Peter Defty from Vespa says these number changes are a sign of being in superior health.  What do you think about why this happens?

Thanks so much,

Gina

5. How can people outside the United States convert cholesterol numbers from American units?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I’ve been on a real food-based ketogenic diet since May last year and have lost 50 pounds so far with 50 more to go. I recently went to my doctor here in the UK to get my cholesterol numbers run and the numbers are all different from what you have in the states. When you share about numbers using the American units, it doesn’t mean anything to me. My doctor says my numbers are all good and to keep doing what I’m doing. What formula can I use to understand my numbers better. Here are my current results in English measurements (Adam, I added the American conversions parenthetically for our knowledge during the show):

Total cholesterol - 3.7 (143)
Triglycerides - 0.7 (62)
HDL - 0.9 (35)
LDL - 2.5 (96)
Blood Sugar - 4.4 (79)
A1c - 29 (???)

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

6. Can blood pressure lowering medications reduce your total cholesterol?

Hey guys,

I'm a 41-year old man currently taking Losartan for high blood pressure. I have been doing the ketogenic diet for a little over a month and have lost 27 pounds. My lab results show that my total cholesterol is very low at 111, HDL 44, LDL 57, and triglycerides 49. Additionally, my Carbon Dioxide level is high at 32 and my Alkaline Phosphate is low at 29. Are these levels along with my very low total cholesterol related to my blood pressure medication? I love your podcast and thank you for answering my question.

7. Can BCAA’s and sweeteners be the culprit in rising cholesterol levels?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc,

First of all, thank you for bombarding us Ketonians with knowledge, science, and humor.  I have learned a lot about not only the ketogenic diet, but food and diseases in general.  I’m 30 years old with no real markers of chronic disease.  I workout 3 to 4 times a week for about 2 hours and started the ketogenic diet six months ago. I feel great with tons of energy, very little appetite, clear mind, and fat loss. When I ran my blood work after a 24 hour fast, my doctor demanded that I stop my diet immediately because the cholesterol went up too much. Total cholesterol went from 182 to 433 with most of it happening in the LDL-C. HDL rose from 54 to 62 and triglycerides rose from 89 to 102.

Adam was kind enough to explain to me in an email that fat doesn’t spike cholesterol…insulin and stress does. SO it got me thinking about what I’m eating and the only thing I can think of that could be the culprit are the branch chain amino acids I use on a daily basis. They have ACE-K in them and so does the sugar-free sweetener in my Starbucks coffee. Is it possible this is what is spiking my cholesterol so high? My A1c was 5.2 and fasting glucose 103. I temporarily stopped eating eating to please my doctor because I don’t want to challenge his authority in my health. But I want to gather as much information as I can before my next visit to try to show the science.

Thank you guys, and keep up the great work.

8. Does eating keto eventually lead to the development of higher levels of Small LDL-P?

Hi Jimmy and Adam!

I listened to Dr. Sarah Hallberg’s presentation from the Low Carb Vail conference last year where she discussed changes in blood lipids in response to a ketogenic diet. She noted during her talk that a subset of ketogenic patients show a shift in LDL to the less favorable small, dense LDL particles over time eating keto. She hypothesized a mechanism that involved insulin possibly getting too low which leads to this negative effect on Small LDL-P. Have you seen this in your patients, Dr. Nally? If it does happen, what’s going on? And the real question is whether this matters at all in the context of a good A1c and low hsCRP levels.

Thanks for your great podcast! I love everything you guys are doing. I listen to lots of podcasts every week and I must say this one is my favorite. It makes my Thursdays feel like Friday because it always puts me in a good mood.

9. Is having high HDL cholesterol a cause for concern when you’re eating a ketogenic diet?

Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I am one of your oldest listeners and followers living low-carb for the past twenty years. I’ve been explicitly low-carb, high-fat for the past five years. I started taking your BerberinePlus supplement five days before my latest lab work and my blood glucose fell to 84. However, my HDL rose to 180 with triglycerides at 51. I’ve read that having high HDL can be a bad thing. My LDL is 108 and total cholesterol 277. I do consume more C-8 MCT oil in my diet now. Is that why my HDL went up? To make matters worse, my doctor has gone vegan and we’re butting heads on nutrition. Is this very high HDL cholesterol level a concern? Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always listen Keto Talk and really appreciate the time you invest in sharing your knowledge.

Love you guys,

Karen

10. Why would eating carbs like bread decrease LDL-P and LDL-C?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I have a question about my LDL-P and LDL-C numbers eating keto since December 2015. They have both increased dramatically and my doctor is panicking pushing me to start taking a statin. I refused since my triglycerides were 56 and HDL was 60. I got depressed in August 2016 and stopped eating keto for a period of time eating lots of bread and other very high-carb foods during that time. When I tested my cholesterol again in December 2016, I was stunned to discover my LDL-P and LDL-C both went way down. Why did eating carbs make these numbers better than when I was eating ketogenic?

Thank you so much for providing great information!  I love Keto Talk!

11. Does knowing your Apo E genotype determine what kind of fats you can consume for ketosis?

I'm wondering if you have any information on how your Apo E genotype affects fat metabolism on a LCHF diet. I'm an Apo E 3/4 and I've always been told to avoid saturated fats and opt for mono and polyunsaturated choices instead as my genotype has a harder time metabolizing saturated fats. Interestingly, statin drugs would have no effect on me because my cholesterol levels relate more to the way I process ingested fats. I've heard you guys say on the podcast that saturated fats are better for ketone production. So does your Apo E genotype determine what kind of fats you should be eating on a ketogenic diet?

Thanks,

Julie

12. What can a Ketonian do to lower Lp(a) and is it something to be concerned about?

Hey guys,

I would like to ask a question about the results of my Lipoprotein(a). It came back at 158 with a reference range of less than 30. My total cholesterol is 197 and all the other cholesterol numbers are perfectly within the reference range. I realize cholesterol is not something to be worried about, but should I be concerned about my Lp(a)? Apparently, diet and lifestyle changes don't do much to help with this. My doctor told me about a pill called Heart Plus (which consists of vitamin C, lysine, and proline) and said it takes a long time to lower Lp(a). Is this something to be concerned about?

Any advice you can give would be appreciated greatly.

Best regards,

Gabrielle

13. Will a ketogenic diet raise low cholesterol levels to help restore proper hormone levels?

Jimmy and the Doc,

I started keto on January 2nd as a 30-year old female with two children, 4 and 6. I’ve been experiencing very low cholesterol levels since the birth of my second child and my doctors have been struggling to find the appropriate doses of hormones to maybe fix these numbers. My most recent results showed my total cholesterol is 110. Will the ketogenic diet help me raise my total cholesterol up to a healthier level so my body will start producing appropriate levels of hormones again? I’ve already noticed short-term memory loss from the low cholesterol and I’m desperately looking for an answer. Is keto going to be the answer for me?

Thanks fromThe KetogenicTooLowCholesterolMom,

Kayla

 14. Why do middle-aged women see a dramatic rise in their cholesterol and is it a cause for concern?

Dear Jimmy and the Doc,

I am a 50-year old female who has been living low-carb for several years and doing keto fairly strictly for the past six months. Going keto has allowed me to finally take off that last ten pounds and I feel so good on this lifestyle. Last year at this time my cholesterol numbers looked fine with HDL 170 and LDL 109. I just had a more extensive blood panel done and my numbers now look scarily high with an LDL-C of 179. A few of my friends who are the same age as me and not eating keto have seen a similar jump in their cholesterol and been prescribed statins (something I want to avoid). I read that this LDL jump seems to be common in women around menopause and is the biggest factor in driving the large increase in statin prescriptions in my age group. What’s going on in women like me seeing increasing cholesterol levels and is it cause for concern? I would like to keep eating keto, but I fear my family history of heart disease on my father’s side will have my doctor telling me to get on a statin immediately.

Thanks so much for your advice,

Abby

15. Are triglycerides a good or bad thing when you are consuming a ketogenic diet?

Can you explain the different types of fats in the body? I keep hearing about how bad triglycerides are on your cholesterol panel. And yet I also hear about triglycerides being oxidized in the liver for increasing ketone production? This seems like a contradiction! Do we want triglycerides in our body or not while pursuing nutritional ketosis?

Chris

16. Should I be concerned by my own test results if I have a family history of high cholesterol?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc!

Thank you guys for everything you do.  Your books, knowledge and podcasts are changing the lives of so many people in such a beneficial way.  I feel lucky to have discovered keto about four months ago and the journey so far has been nothing short of spectacular.

I'm a healthy, active male who enjoys rock-climbing in my home state of Colorado. I've noticed a tremendous improvement not only physically as it relates to my sport, but mentally as well. Since adapting I've been able to break down both physical and mental barriers that had stalled me for some time. It took me around 8 weeks to feel fully keto-adapted and get my blood ketone levels ranging consistently from .5-1.5.

Recently I made a visit to Dr. Jeffry Gerber’s office and everything checked out great except for my cholesterol. Here were my results: Total Cholesterol 315, HDL 91, LDL 210, and triglycerides 68.  My blood glucose was 79 and my A1c was 5.3. Thankfully Dr. Gerber didn’t freak out about my numbers and he concluded that my LDL particles are very likely the healthy fluffy kind with my triglyceride/HDL ratio being so good. Given my family history of high cholesterol, It's a bit concerning when I think that I may be one of the few that can't handle the ketogenic diet.

My question for you guys is this—what do you think the next steps should be for me given my recent lipid results?  Should I have my numbers checked again at some point in time? Or should I order the expensive NMR Lipoprofile or similar test? Or should I stop worrying and just assume all is well?  I'm not the type of person to assume anything, especially when the consequences could be so high. But I wanted to ask of your opinion before I drop $600 or more on a particle test.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.  Again, thanks for all you guys do!

Regards,

Derek

17. Can a ketogenic diet help reduce or completely eliminate calcified plaque?

Hello Jimmy and The Doc,

I love Keto Talk as well as Jimmy’s book Keto Clarity. The advice really helps those of us who are going against our doctors’ advice in an attempt to take control of our health. I have been keto for three years and wondered if it would help improve or possibly even reverse calcified plaque? I had a CT Heart Calcium Score done and saw it drop from 69 in 2014 to 64 in 2016. Will these improvements continue to get me back closer to a score of 0 or is the condition merely stabilized? Heart disease runs in my family and so I’m hoping going keto will buck this trend.

Thanks for your help!

Kevin

KEY QUOTE: “Can a person be keto adapted and not be in ketosis? Absolutely yes.” — Dr. Adam Nally

Did you catch the "real food" advertising in SuperBowl LI? What a fabulous sign that the trend line for real food is shifting!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 53:

- Jimmy and Adam share highlights from the Metabolic Therapeutics Conference in Tampa

- How long until my body adjusts to burning fat for fuel? Can a person be a fat burner but not be in ketosis?

I’m almost 59 years old but very active. I trail run, cycle, downhill ski and strength train (heavy weights low reps all barbell). And when I retire in a year or two I plan on learning how to swim. I’ve been reading a lot about other people’s experiences with the Maffetone method of aerobic exercise and getting faster and faster at the same low heart rate over time. About six years ago, I practiced this method and saw results, but then everything started to regress over time. Maffetone suggests low-carb for a couple of weeks to determine your carb tolerance. After reading and implementing the ideas from Keto Clarity the past couple of weeks, I’m using the Ketostix urine ketone testing strips to determine my protein tolerance and what’s kicking me out of ketosis. Once I get all of this figured out, how long until my body adjusts to burning fat for fuel? And can a person be a fat burner but not be in ketosis?

Thanks so much!

1. What is the effect of consuming MSG on my ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

I love the podcast and wish I could get it more then once a week! You guys provide such good information. I've been doing keto for 3 months and have lost 25 pounds. My question is about the monosodium glutamate (MSG) found in some low-carb foods like pork rinds, sunflower seeds, and processed meats. I do my best to avoid MSG but if I’m not careful and I eat something with MSG, my weight stalls and I noticeably feel my heart pounding. What effect does MSG have on a ketogenic diet?

2. Will a ketogenic clear up my heartburn? Would taking digestive enzymes help?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a 31-year old female and I’ve been obese for most of my life. But over the last 2 1/2 years I've been able to lose about 70 pounds on a mostly low-carb Paleo diet. My weight has been stuck for the past 8 months and I'm thinking of trying keto to lose the last 30 pounds. I have pretty bad acid reflux and have been taking Prevacid every couple of days for a few years to keep the heartburn at bay.

I have two questions for you guys to address:

1) Do you think my heartburn is caused by my previous unhealthy diet which included grains, beer, and more and that it will clear up on it's own with keto? I'm worried that the Prevacid might be disrupting my ability to break down all the healthy fat i'm eating due to lowering my stomach acid.

2) Could my heartburn be a result of a disrupted microbiome? And if so, should I stop taking heartburn medicine altogether and hope it clears up? Would digestive enzymes be advisable? Any help or insight would be much appreciated.

I love listening to your show! Your podcast has inspired me to pursue a career in nutritional neuroscience (I’m currently finishing my Ph.D. in auditory neuroscience. I’m thinking about writing my dissertation on what causes heartburn).

Thank you for the help!

3. CDoes a ketogenic diet lead to impotence for middle-aged men?

Hi guys,

Love your podcast and it’s inspired me to look into the keto way of life. But I am concerned about impotence from eating a ketogenic diet. I have read a lot about this way of eating and unfortunately there seems to be a lot of comments from men in my age range (mid-40's) having impotence problems. Can you shed some light on this and tell me if it is a real problem for men when eating keto?

Thank you for your help,

John

– Is it normal to gain body fat percentage transiently when you first start eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I read Keto Clarity and have been recommending it to many of my patients! I am a naturopathic doctor and have been running a weight loss program in my clinic where I started teaching patients the principles of ketosis. We have 8 participants and in the first two weeks of the program the majority of them lost weight. However, there were 2-3 people whose body fat percentage actually increased slightly. I can’t seem to find much info on this online and was wondering if you could tell me what’s going on. We use the Tanita scale to measure body fat changes. Could this be a transient thing as people begin increasing their fat intake initially? I’m not really sure how to explain this to my patients. Overall, everyone we have put through the program is feeling great and moving in the right direction. YAY!

I really appreciate any insight you may have. Thanks!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 52:

- Does a ketogenic diet increase the prevalence of adult acne?
 
Hello Jimmy and the Doc,  
 
Thank you so much for your wonderful podcast. I’ve listened to every episode and learn something new every time.  My question for you is about my 58-year old husband who has a slight adult acne problem that flares up occasionally in the winter. We’ve been eating keto since June and his acne has gotten worse than it ever has. I’ve heard you mention that eating keto can help teenagers with their acne issues, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for my husband. He’s ready to give up on keto because of this issue. What is he doing wrong? Do you think this problem will calm down eventually if he continues with his well-formulated ketogenic diet or will it just keep getting worse?

 

Thank you for your help with this,

1. What’s the effect of refined lard vs. pastured lard as a fat source on a ketogenic diet?
 
Hi guys,
 
I was listening to Dr. Ted Naiman's talk from The Low-Carb Cruise on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show and his comment about using lard on a ketogenic diet caught my attention. He mentioned his concerns with coupling fats and carbs using refined, empty-calorie sources of both, in rat studies. The fats he listed were vegetable oil and lard.  
 
I am curious what you guys think about lard and its place in a ketogenic diet. Lard is a fat that seems to be as good as its source which is only as good what it ate. Dr. Naiman did note that he’s referring to the "refined" version of lard, but my question for you guys is this: Would using home-rendered, sustainably-fed, and naturally pastured lard still be associated with this empty and inferior fat source? Looking at the profile of lard, its mixture of monounsaturated and saturated fats, not to mention the vitamin D content, it seems to be a well-rounded source of healthy fat.  
 
What’s your take on this? Thanks!

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Nally! 
 
I absolutely love your podcast!  My question for you is this: Why have I experienced major heartburn since I started following a ketogenic diet?

3. If you cycle carbs, then are you increasing your risk of kidney stones and other nutrition-related health issues?
 
Hi Jimmy and The Doc,
 
I am a 25 year old male amateur bodybuilder and powerlifter and I have been following a cyclical ketogenic diet. I carb up with high glycemic carbs on the weekend and eat ketogenic all during the week. I consume higher protein when I lift heavy five times a week. You guys sparked my interest in one of your podcasts where you discussed kidney stones and carbohydrate intake and I was curious about whether a cyclical ketogenic diet would increase my risk of kidney stones and other carb-related health issues.

- Why do I become so incredibly tired after eating?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,
 
First, let me say how much I love love love this podcast. I look forward to my drive home from work on Thursday evenings because I know there will be a new episode of Keto Talk to enjoy. I find your podcast to be so informative, entertaining and real. There's so much information out there around health, nutrition and fitness that it's hard to sort through the noise sometimes. Coming back to this podcast keeps me grounded each week. Thank you both so much for the time you put into helping others reap the benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle.
 
I’ve been on a ketogenic diet for five months and have seen incredible success in my health markers. But I have experienced one strange issue that I’d like your help with. I eat around 7:00pm, fall asleep on the couch around 9:00 and actually go to bed around 10:00.  Then I'm up at 4:15am and I start a fasted workout of intense strength training or cardio for 1 hour six times a week. Most days, I don't break my fast until noon but will sometimes have coffee with a little heavy cream and a little MCT oil. I feel great throughout, but as soon as I eat something like a salad, I get sooooooo tired!  
 
I could actually curl up under my desk and take a nap if I thought no one would notice! It generally lasts about an hour. What in the world could be causing this? It's definitely not a "sugar crash" or a "carb coma" because it happens so quickly and I don’t eat those things anyway. I pay attention to getting adequate electrolytes, so I don't think that's it either. I am probably not getting enough sleep, but I feel rested when I wake up. Could it simply be that my body really needs that much energy to digest my food that’s leading to my symptoms? I welcome any ideas you may have on what could be causing this and any tricks I could apply to prevent it.  
 
Thanks so much!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 51:

Hey Jimmy and the Doc,
 
Thank you for this awesome podcast. I have learned so much from you guys. I read Keto Clarity a year ago and have been learning everything I can about ketosis ever since. My fasting blood glucose is always in the 70’s and 80’s, but my weight seems to go too low for my comfort. I’m 6’1” tall and weigh 178 pounds. I have heard you talk about how eating high-fat and high-carb at the same time is a really bad idea. I don’t necessarily want to go too high-carb, but will it cause me problems to stay high-fat but add a lot more real food sources of carbohydrates such as potatoes, berries, fruit, etc. to keep my weight over 180 where I’m most comfortable. My father had his first heart attack at 50 years old and even though my blood work is excellent, besides high LDL-C, this concerns me. Can you please clarify the dangers of high-fat, higher carb eating?
 
Thanks for all you do,
 
Rodney

1. Can hormone replacement therapy have a negative impact on blood ketone and blood sugar levels that would halt weight loss?
 
Hi Jimmy and Adam,
 
I love your Keto Talk podcast. I had a question about being on hormone replacement therapy while eating keto. I had surgical menopause when I was 26 and I’m currently on hormone replacement therapy (HRT). I've also been on keto for the past few years and I've always struggled with my weight. I’ve noticed that when I'm not on my estrogen therapy, I have no issues with losing weight. But the moment I start on HRT, I can't seem to lose the weight. On HRT, my blood ketones are only 0.4 mmol and my blood sugar is in the 90’s. When I’m off HRT, blood ketones reach 1.2 mmol and blood sugar is in the 60’s. My endocrinologist has a fit when I'm not my hormone replacement. So despite being on a low-dose of estrogen (3mg), could the HRT be negatively impacting my weight loss and my overall ability to stay in optimal therapeutic levels of nutritional ketosis?
 
Thanks for your help with this!

2. Why don’t TOFI people gain weight eating low-fat? Would a ketogenic diet help them without weight loss?
 
Hi guys,
 
I look forward to your podcast every week.  It has helped keep me informed and motivated me in my keto journey since I began 9 months ago. I've lost 38 pounds so far with ease with no hunger or cravings. You guys rock!
 
I'm very interested in the biological mechanisms of ketosis and I know how much Dr. Nally loves geeking out on this kinda stuff. Regarding the Carbohydrate-Insulin Theory, can you explain how TOFI (thin outside, fat inside) people don't put on visible weight when they consume a high-carb, low-fat diet? Is it just genetics? And can you explain how a high-carb, low-fat diet creates inflammation in the body with or without the weight gain? Finally, how would a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet help someone with TOFI?
 
Thanks so much,
 
Katy from Liverpool, England 
 
3. If you don’t burn up fat you consume, then what happens to it in a ketogenic state?
 
I intermittently fast for 16 to 20 hours each day in addition to being on a ketogenic diet. I'm about 3 weeks in, and so far so good. If you are fully keto-adapted, then what happens to the fat that you consume and do not burn off for energy? If your insulin levels are low, that fat can’t possibly be stored, right? If that is true, then what happens to it?
 
I appreciate your input. THANKS!

Hi Jimmy and The Doc! Love the show, I have a long drive to work everyday and you guys make it fly by!
My question is about the impact of a ketogenic diet on sperm production? You talk about it boosting testosterone but does it actually boost sperm production?
 
Thanks guys!

- Isn't the problem with weight loss woe on keto too many calories?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc! You guys are the best! I love all the work you do to spread information and support for keto. But I do have a tiny bone to pick with you guys if you wouldn’t mind hearing me out!

I am a certified holistic health coach who has specialized in the ketogenic diet for many years now. I love it with my whole heart because the benefits are outrageous and undeniable! However, I have noticed some do not find weight loss success when attempting keto because of one MAJOR issue in my opinion. I see it time and time again. It’s the calories.

I'm not talking about a person mistakenly eating too many carbs for individual tolerance nor am I talking about accidentally eating too much protein. These are people who are fully keto-adapted with adequate blood ketone readings who are working out and sleeping great, managing stress well, and yet they are not losing weight. Why? It's because they are eating too many calories to give their body a reason to need to tap into body fat stores.

This is one of the things I have heard you guys repeatedly tell people often on Keto Talk—“calories don't matter, as long as it's coming from fat and as long as they are eaten to satiety.” But this doesn't actually work in real life for most people and it also doesn't make any logical sense. After all, if it were indeed sound and true, people would not be able to maintain weight in ketosis. Health coaches like me who have been in ketosis for years would just forever keep losing fat until we keeled over. But this isn't happening because if a person is maintaining ketosis, they are eating enough calories from fat that the body doesn't have to convert body fat into ketones and homeostasis is achieved.

I hear you guys say it's hard or darn near impossible to eat too much fat because you get full. But, most people coming into this have leptin resistance, binge eating disorder, and other issues that bypass satiety completely. Without proper coaching and calorie accountability they get totally out of control on keto just like any other plan. Now, I'm not saying health isn't still improving on keto even with excessive calories. Healing will indeed still happen. But not weight loss for most people. I can confidently say that after years of consulting that this is unfortunately the rule and not the exception.

Most people eat way past satiety after the first month or so of keto. It seems that at first they have such great appetite suppression from ketones and are able to stop before consuming calories in excess. But then that satiety dwindles and they start snacking on fat bombs, macadamia nuts, olives, cheese, and other non-protein or carb containing drinks or shakes with tons of cream. It’s an overload of fat calories. They are still having 1 to 2.5 blood ketone readings but they just keep packing in the calories from fat and stop losing weight. Every now and then even gain a little. It’s not water weight either, it’s body fat.

Then, they totally believe all the myths that keto doesn't work and you only lose water weight in the beginning and that consuming fat ultimately makes you fat. I HATE those myths. We know ketosis is da bomb diggity and will absolutely shift every metabolic marker in the right direction. And in my opinion weight loss is the least important. But not to my clients! And not to the average person interested in health and wellness. I get clients who have tried various high-fat programs and they end up at me after they get frustrated gaining weight and feeling cruddy.

I wholeheartedly believe this weight gain is completely unnecessary if keto-adaptation happened as a result of using the fat on our bodies preferentially over the fat on our plates. What are your thoughts on this? Thank you so much for addressing my little pet peeve and I hope I didn’t come across as a jerk! I want to see this movement succeed and thrive and this is one topic that we need to get right to communicate the best information to the masses.

You guys are my heroes so thank you for doing what you do!

Emily

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 50:

-  What are the best and worst proteins on insulin response while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

Which proteins provoke the largest and smallest insulin response? I'm trying to reverse my insulin resistance by keeping my protein lower (50-70g/day). But I wonder if the type of protein can make a difference. Specifically, I'm curious about collagen because I like to add it to my KetoCocoa for a quick, high fat meal replacement on-the-go meal. Thanks so much!

JIMMY AND ADAM’S NEW KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS

1. Can a ketogenic diet help manage lipedema and are there any concerns going keto with this condition?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I suspect I have the fat disorder called lipedema, also known as “painful fat syndrome.” It is a chronic condition of adipose tissue and lymphatic vessel dysfunction which manifests as bilateral, symmetrical fatty excess on the hips and legs. It can be progressive, causing immobility and lymphedema. The lipedema fat is not accessible to normal weight loss techniques.  Despite the fact this afflicts approximately 11% of women, it is difficult to get a diagnosis for it in the United States. In the future, I will likely visit an endocrinologist who I know specializes in this. In the meantime, I have done a lot of reading and as a Masters Prepared Registered Nurse I feel I am interpreting the literature correctly in thinking I have lipedema.

I have been on a whole foods-based ketogenic diet for two years and frequently check my blood glucose and blood ketone levels. I have lost 25 pounds and am experiencing great improvements in my physical, emotional, and cognitive function.  Unfortunately, my legs and upper arms have not changed at all and with the onset of menopause, they just continue to grow. The pain is getting more frequent and I feel very sad that despite my success and warrior-like attitude, I may not be able to overcome this challenge.

My current endocrinologist recommends against eating a ketogenic diet and many of her statements sound like the typical outdated dietary advice. So here are my questions for you:  Do you have any experience with lipedema and the ketogenic diet? Do you see any reason why ketosis would be contraindicated? Do you have any suggestions for dealing with this disorder and halting its progression?

Thank you both for the wonderful podcast.  I geek out on the science and gain tools and motivation every time I listen.  Jimmy, you have changed my life—so THANK YOU!

Warm regards,

Susan

2. If my blood sugar is high and my blood ketones are low while eating keto, then can I assume I’m burning muscle?

Jimmy and Adam,

Thank you for the podcast and all the great information about the ketogenic diet. I have been doing my own version of keto for the last two months and have had incredible success losing 25 pounds so far with 25 more to go. I feel amazing with no hunger cravings, tons of energy, and no more afternoon naps from the sugar crash.

Since I am likely losing weight because of the reduction in calories, I am now concerned that I am burning muscle for energy instead of my stored body fat. I assume I’m burning muscle because my blood glucose remains so high and ketones are very low despite not eating any carbohydrates except for vegetables. How can I seemingly still be a sugar burner without eatings sugar or carbs? I am really confused and disappointed by all of this and it’s making me feel discouraged about my ketogenic plan. I feel really energized and I’m losing weight, but I am nervous that the weight loss I am experiencing is muscle and not fat. Can you help put my mind at ease about this?

Thanks again and have a great day!!

Ryan

3. Is dehydration robbing me of energy on my ketogenic diet? What can I do to get properly hydrated while keto?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love Keto Talk because it encourages me in my own ketogenic journey. I’ve been in and out of ketosis for the past 3-4 years and I typically get kicked out because of some “carbage” that I allow in my diet. I’m a 30-year old male and consume around 3,000 calories daily eating a fat/protein/carbohydrate ratio of 75/20/5. My blood sugar runs 88-112 mg/dL and my blood ketones are 0.4-1.1 mmol.

My problem is with plummeting energy levels and dehydration as I work a physically demanding job outside in Florida’s hot summer weather as well as strength training for about 45 minutes/4 days a week. What can I do to stay hydrated? I currently drink over 3 liters of water/day and bring a Hass avocado with sea salt to work for a snack. Is it likely that my energy levels will increase if I stick with this more consistently over the long-term?

Here’s a rundown of the foods I eat on my ketogenic diet:

Fat: Kerrygold butter, grass fed beef, coconut oil, coconut butter, eggs, avocados, macadamia nuts, cream cheese

Protein: beef, chicken wings, eggs, canned oysters, lamb

Carb: mixed greens, asparagus, green beans, coconut butter, lemon, occasionally raw tomato. I ate a mango last week before my workout…can't say I regret it. It gave me a super boost.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Sincerely,

Frank

- Share more about the practical use of taking phentermine as part of a ketogenic approach

On Episode 47, Adam mentioned stimulant-based supplements and mentioned that he writes a prescription for phentermine for about one-third of his patient population for a few months. So I have a few questions about this:

1) When do you decide to prescribe phentermine?

2) How do you instruct patients to take it while starting a ketogenic diet? (i.e. dosage, when to take, etc.)

3) Do you also instruct patients to intermittently fast for several hours after taking the medication? (i.e. take it in the morning and then don’t eat until the afternoon)

I take phentermine to control my hunger but haven't taken any recently.  I'm one of those people who seems to be hungry all of the time despite increasing my fat and calories. My blood glucose is always under 100 and my A1c is 5.1. I have a hard time with getting keto-adapted and am looking to use phentermine for a few months to help me kickstart my keto journey.  I have successfully been in ketosis before so I know it will shut my hunger off.  I'm just having a hard time with the transition this time around.

Thanks so much for all that you do!

Leslie

1. Do I need to back off of my high-intensity workouts to improve blood sugar and blood ketone levels?

Hi guys,

I recently hit a weight loss plateau, so I decided to begin a small high-intensity training workout program called T25 Focus with Shaun T.  I test my morning glucose and ketones in the morning and I typically average about 1.5 mmol ketones and about 82 in my blood glucose. After day two of the workout, I decided to test my blood sugar and ketones thinking the exercise I did about an hour prior would increase my ketone levels. But imagine my shock when I tested and had a higher blood glucose level of 113, and lower ketones at 0.6 mmol.  Was the exercise too intense which caused stored glycogen to be released?  Should I be doing less intense exercise to keep my ketones and blood sugar in check?  

Thanks for your help,

Josh, Ketonian for life

2. Can blood thinners diminish the presence of ketones in the blood?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your podcast and I’m guessing like many other Ketonians out there that I stumbled on it. I’m glad I did and have ever since listened to nearly all of them once and about to go through them a second time. Awesome job keep up the great work!

My question for you guys is about the blood thinner I’m taking called Warfarin. Can blood thinners be impacting my blood ketones levels in any way? As a nurse, my gut response to this question would be no. But when I tested my blood ketones, the level was just 0.4 mmol. My usual blood ketone level prior to taking the blood thinners was closer to a range 0.6-1.2 mmol. When I test my breath ketones with a Ketonix, it indicates I have very strong ketones in the yellow to red range.

I have been keto for almost a year now and eat as clean as I possibly can. The only carbs I consume come from salad veggies and avocado. Is there any evidence supporting my theory that blood thinners reduce the level of ketones in the blood?

Keep up the great work you two!

Warm regards,

Barry

3. Can a ketogenic diet help someone dealing with psoriatic arthritis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show and especially the experience that Dr. Nally has with using keto with so many patients in his office. I have a niece who was recently diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and I was wondering if The Doc has any experience with or research looking at patients who have this condition where a ketogenic diet would help.

Thanks for any insights,

- Are advanced glycation end products (AGEs) a concern for people eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I am reading about advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and their content in foods. The high-fat and animal-based foods seem to contain the highest levels of AGEs, along with other popular keto foods such as avocados and almonds. What is your take on this seemingly disturbing problem with eating a low-carb, high-fat diet and have you come across any resources that can dispute these claims?

Warmest regards,

Penny

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 48:

- What can I do to deal with the cravings that desserts bring on when I am most vulnerable?

Hey Jimmy & Adam,

I’m a sugar addict. My current streak of not eating sugar and other crappy carbage is 42 days, but the holidays are always the toughest when I struggle the most. Dessert is my biggest downfall and, unlike Dr. Nally who can get back on the wagon within a few days, it takes me a couple of months to recover. It was Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then New Year’s…and now Valentine’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July and more are coming up in the next few months. My willpower is very strong before the winter holidays, but I need a good strategy for staying strong through all these temptations. I’ve been looking for good dessert alternatives, but even maple syrup, honey, stevia, and the other sweeteners seem to set my cravings off. Is abstinence from all sweets altogether the only answer for someone like me?

Thanks for your great podcast.

Dave

CONSUMER REPORTS article: The Truth About a High-Protein, Low-Carb Diet

1. What are the signs other than testing that my body is running primarily on ketone bodies?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I enjoy your Keto Talk podcast and I have a question for you guys. I am mostly Paleo (eating the 80/20 lifestyle) but have always been curious about the ketogenic diet and have even tried it a couple times. But I haven't been able to stick with it for very long. I don't have any health issues (my insulin is normal, I’m at a healthy weight, I exercise regularly), but I am interested in maybe implementing some form of keto lifestyle for changing my body composition.

My question for you guys is when do you know you are in ketosis other than testing with a ketone strip or getting blood work done? What specific signals does the body give you to let you know ketones are your primary fuel source? I have noticed that when I am low-carb, high-fat, I can feel some change in my body in terms of energy and a spring in my step. But I also get a cold feeling running down the back of my throat. Is this normal when in ketosis?

Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you!

2. Why isn’t my A1c going down on my ketogenic diet? Would taking Metformin help?

Hi Jimmy and Adam!

I love this podcast and I've learned a ton of information about ketosis along with reading Keto Clarity. I have Hashimoto's and was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I am on Armour thyroid and my thyroid labs have been consistently doing well for the past few years. However, my A1c has been in the pre-diabetic range (5.7-6.0) for the last few years despite my best efforts to reduce it through diet. Two months ago I went keto hoping to bring it down while also treating my Hashimoto’s. Imagine my surprise when my latest labs show my A1c is still 5.8 despite keep carbs under 20 grams a day and carefully watching my protein intake.

Is 2 months not long enough for me to see real improvement in my A1c? My endocrinologist tested me for adult onset type 1 diabetes, but that came back negative. All my other blood work looks great except for the A1c and my liver panel. Could the liver abnormalities impact the A1c? I wonder if someone like me could stand to benefit from taking a low dose of Metformin to give an extra push with my ketogenic diet. I’m using the Ketonix to test for the presence of ketones in my breath and I’m almost always positive for ketosis. Do I just need to be more patient? I am fully committed to keto regardless, but just wondered about these other things.

Thank you for all of your hard work. It is greatly appreciated!

3. Does surgical menopause increase carb cravings? Will keto prevent a recurrence of cancer?

Jimmy & Doc Nally,

I had surgical menopause in 2015 in response to persistent PCOS and early stage breast cancer and it gave me peace of mind that those cysts would not become cancerous. However, this surgery has caused other issues now. Most notably, I’m finding it harder to MENTALLY do keto because I feel like I am having more cravings and less willpower than ever before. I’ve done low-carb and ketogenic diets with great success previously, but menopause seems to have changed something in me. Did something actually change or is this all in my head? And do we have any evidence that a ketogenic diet will prevent a recurrence of cancer?

Thanks for sharing your answers to my questions!

- How do I determine whether going ketogenic is right for me?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m really grateful for discovering your podcast. I think we will look back on these past few years as the place where the truth about food and health began to come to the surface. I have been listening to KetoTalk and it has convinced me that going keto is the way to go for me. You guys have often said that you need to find what works for you and that a ketogenic approach isn’t necessarily for everyone.

My problem is if I want to get into full on keto mode, it sounds like that I need a doctor to help me get started who would be willing to help me to do something that many in that profession thinks runs counter to his belief about health. But Dr. Nally has clearly said that a ketogenic diet isn't for everyone, so here’s my question for you guys—how do I know whether or not it is right for me? Do I have to be metabolically broken and how do I know if I am? And if a ketogenic diet is not right for me, then what is?

It seems this message of low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets is still so fringe and it’s difficult to explain it to doctors, friends, and even my own family where my wife says if sugar was so bad for you, then why would they sell it in stores? This is an uphill battle that I face here in the real world and would love your help in navigating through it all.

Grace and peace to you and yours,

Tim

1. Do I need to detox my liver and gallbladder before attempting to go keto?

Hello Jimmy and The Doc!

Ever since I decided to adopt a ketogenic lifestyle, I’ve wondered if I should do a number of liver and gallbladder flushes before trying to get keto-adapted? It’s usually recommended to eat low-fat for a few days during this flushing period so that would likely kick me out of ketosis anyway. I feel like my body has a difficult time detoxing and I wanted to do a series of liver flushes to get my liver working optimally again.

I am a Holistic Lifestyle Coach and have the ability to run labs for liver function. My mother, grandmother, and great grandmother have all had to have their gallbladders removed and I want to keep mine! Would really love to hear your thoughts on this.

Thank you so much for all of your work!

Kind Regards,

MariaPaula

2. Is using exogenous ketones an effective way to boost ketones when they are at their lowest?

Hey guys,

Is there any emerging research on what the most effective dose of exogenous sources of beta-hydroxybutyrate should be? And what is the best time of day to use them? Through my own N=1 experimentation, I have found that I'm out of ketosis for about 3 hours after I wake up in the morning. Then by midday I'm right back into ketosis with levels steadily increasing as the day goes on. After working out in the evenings, I am usually in the red zone on the Ketonix.

But then by the following morning I'm back to green again. So I'm wondering if I should take a supplement like KETO//OS in the mornings upon waking up since this is when my levels are naturally at their lowest or if I should take it in the afternoon or evenings to accentuate my natural rhythm. Are there any studies looking at the relationship between circadian rhythms and ketones or the use of exogenous ketones that could help me in my situation? My purpose in eating ketogenic is disease prevention and anti-aging.

Thanks,

Jamie

3. Is my depression preventing me from getting the full benefits of keto? Do depression drugs work differently in the presence of ketosis?

Greetings gentlemen,

I’m sure many people who are trying the ketogenic diet suffer from major depressive disorder. I recently stayed in nutritional ketosis averaging 1.0-5.0 mmol/L and heavily supplemented with electrolytes for 5 weeks but did not experience the increased energy that I hear being reported by others. Although I lost weight and didn’t have to eat as often, I still had some pretty intense carb cravings.

Could my depression be interfering with the benefits of nutritional ketosis? And if I push through these cravings now, will remaining in a ketogenic state eventually help me deal with the depression? I also wonder what some of the most commonly-prescribed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as Lexapro, Prozac, and Zoloft do in conjunction with keto to interact and work differently than a standard diet.

Thanks for any insights,

Ryan

4. Can I use green banana flour resistant starch and stay in ketosis while taking care of my microbiome?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I'm starting on a new health mission to feed and nurture my microbiome. The mechanism for this feeding is a daily high-fat smoothie that contains coconut milk, protein powder, MCT oil, some berries, and banana flour resistant starch to make a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb keto smoothie. I have a few questions for you guys about this:

- Is this Green Banana Flour Prebiotic Resistant Starch keto-friendly? I've read on the Internet that the starch does not spike blood sugar. Is that true? The product I'm using has 7.5 grams of carbs per tablespoon. What say you?

- Will resistant starch on a ketogenic diet over time transform my microbiome from being fat to lean?

- Do you have additional suggestions or thoughts for the care and feeding of the microbiome while remaining in a state of nutritional ketosis?

I look forward to listening to your podcast every week as I'm truckin' down the road. You always have little nuggets of info that I can apply directly to my keto lifestyle.

With much regards from your fellow Healthy Ketonian,

Truckin' Chuck

5. Is taking L-Glutamine a good or bad idea when you are on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Thank you for your podcast and I never miss an episode of Keto Talk. I have been eating LCHF for 4 months and have lost 40 pounds so far. I have become interested in taking it to the next level with ketogenic and I am having a hard time getting into ketosis while my weight loss has stalled out. I am taking 8 grams of L-Glutamine a day on the recommendation of Maria Emmerich from one of her books and it definitely seems to help me with sugar cravings. But I heard that L-Glutamine can turn into sugar through gluconeogenesis. Now I'm totally confused and need your help to clear up whether I should be taking this supplement or not. 

Thanks so much,

Shawna

6. Why is my blood pressure still so high despite cutting my carb intake?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I enjoy your show and like hearing about all your experiences and advice concerning keto living. It seems that most people are able to lower their high blood pressure readings very quickly after cutting their carbs. But this has not occurred in my case, even after a year or so. I did hear that there could be other reasons apart from eating high-carb that could lead to high blood pressure. What are they?

Thanks again for your great show,

Rhonda

7. Should I be concerned about toxins from filter fat in my bacon grease fat?

G'day Jimmy and Adam,

A huge THANK YOU for your helpful and informative podcast and for being so generous with your experiences and knowledge beyond this podcast! You both are changing lives for the better!

My question relates to cooking for a ketogenic lifestyle. I hear many people suggesting cooking with bacon grease or bacon fat as we call it here in Australia. I was talking to my local butcher about and mentioned that I cook with bacon fat and he became very alarmed by this. He explained that there are two types of animal fat—one healthy that is what he describes as clean fat and one not so healthy which he calls filter fat. The filter fat contains massive amounts of toxins which is why my butcher recommends cooking with lard or tallow sourced from fat around the kidneys.

Is this something Ketonians should take into consideration or not? Personally I tell people to eat the best your budget will allow and this isn't always organic and grass-fed. We eat bacon everyday and I'm certainly not changing that habit. But maybe the idea of reusing the bacon fat saved from cooking our morning bacon isn't such a good idea after all. I just thought I would bring this up as it is relevant to those of us in the keto community. What are your thoughts?

Sincerely loving the keto lifestyle,

Peter and Susie in Australia

8. Why is peanut butter demonized and almond butter glorified on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I’d like for you guys to settle the seemingly neverending debate about why peanut butter is technically not keto,and why almond butter is so much better. The carb difference between the two is negligible assuming you’re getting a nut butter that has no sugar added to it and the fatty acid profile doesn’t look dramatically different either. I do notice that almond butter has a SLIGHT advantage over peanut butter in the omega 3 to omega 6 ratios but both are very low on omega 3’s as compared to their respective omega 6 ratios. And both look to be within .5 grams of polyunsaturated fat per 1 oz. serving.
So why does peanut butter get demonized while almond butter looks to be a very similar food from a nutritional perspective? I thought this would be a fun topic for you guys to cover on Keto Talk as I know this has been a hot topic of debate on the Internet within low-carb and ketogenic circles.

Thanks for the insights,

Matthew

9. Does being in a ketogenic state produce complications with taking birth control pills?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for your outstanding podcast because it adds so much value to my life. I have a question that I hope you can help me with. My girlfriend has joined me in eating a well-formulated ketogenic diet for just over a month and she feels fantastic in almost every way. The only problem is her period has arrived sooner than it usually does and lasts longer, too. When it happened once, she thought it was an anomaly but then it happened again. She is taking birth control (Lutera) and always had regular and consistent periods while on the pill with little to no side effects.

Are there any potential complications with taking birth control while on a ketogenic diet? If the birth control is causing this issue, what alternatives does Doc Nally recommend? Or will all of this come back into balance with time?

Thank you so much for your help and thank you again for your valuable work.

Yours truly,

Aaron

10. Are there any studies looking at ulcerative colitis and a ketogenic diet?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally!

Love the show, especially when you two tackle the latest research, and I have been a faithful listener and Ketonian since I discovered your show back in March!

I have a family member who is suffering from ulcerative colitis and I was wondering if you guys might be able to shed some light on this disease and how a ketogenic diet might improve or reverse it. Is there any research on using a nutritional therapy like keto to treat it or are people doomed to be on medications forever?

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work you do!

11. Does a high-fat diet like ketogenic increase inflammation in the prostate?

I have been having some serious prostate problems and they seem to be getting worse on the keto diet which I've done for about 6 months. My blood work is great though. I ran across a study from the American Urology Association that states that high-fat is inflammatory for the prostate: see page 3 of 4 under Epidemiology

I am losing my mind over this prostatitis. It’s very painful even though the doctors all say they cannot find anything. Maybe I am the one in a million exception to the rule where eating high-fat does not work for me. Anyways, any feedback you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all your help,

Gil

12. Is there any issue with someone taking a fat-burning supplement while eating ketogenic?

Hi guys,

I've listened to the majority of your episodes and I think I have a topic you haven’t addressed yet. What are your thoughts about the plethora of stimulant-based fat-burning supplements that are being marketed out there? I've heard Dr. Atkins scolded his patients very earnestly in his practice for "cheating" instead of just believing in the diet. You can never really be sure that these supplements actually contain the intended ingredients, but the fact is these stimulants typically are intended to stimulate catabolic hormone pathways supposedly to enhance fat burning and "promote thermogenesis" (in the calorie counting paradigm). But if you're insulin resistant in some way, isn't it probably a really bad idea to be spiking catabolic hormones all willy-nilly when part-and-parcel of insulin resistance is an impaired ability for insulin to control these hormones at the expense of letting your body find the right levels through the ketogenic diet itself?

Thank you for answering my question and I have been enjoying listening to the show a lot.

13. Does an increase in Vitamin D levels diminish ketone levels in the body?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

I have a simple question for you: Does Vitamin D impact ketones? I only ask this because I have noticed a few times some noticeably lower ketone readings after a long day in the sun. I have a feeling movement while outside is also playing a role in this. Any thoughts on this?

14. Is a ketogenic diet an acceptable nutritional therapy for people with organ transplants?

Hello Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m wondering about the impact of a ketogenic diet for organ transplant recipients. I had a liver and kidney transplant in 2001 and was starting to experience problems after about seven years when my husband and I switched to a low-carb diet and very quickly saw all my markers improve. We’ve been eating this way since 2009 and we’re both in great shape. I’ve been telling my nephrologist and my hepatologist what I’m doing, but I can’t persuade them to recommend this way of eating to other transplant patients. Am I just lucky to see my health improve eating keto or could this help other transplant recipients, too?

Cheers,

Anne

15. What do I need to do to experience the robust energy that is supposed to come from ketosis?

I’ve been more or less keto for over two years now and I have to say I don’t really have a “feeling” of when I’m in ketosis. My energy level never really went up all that much and I hear people talk about how great they feel in ketosis. The truth is I’m envious of them because I’ve never experienced this myself. I know there are a LOT of things that relate to energy level: stress, emotional issues that can drain a person, thyroid, electrolytes, etc. How can someone like me who is keto obtain the typical energy level that other Ketonians are experiencing? Where would you start and what would you want to rule in or out? I have a very low CRP, no calcium in the heart, TSH normal and more.

Thanks for helping me figure this out!

16. Is eating a high-fat diet without significantly reducing carbohydrates a concern for cardiovascular health?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles!

I’ve been listening to Keto Talk since the beginning and really enjoy the banter between you two! You both do a great job of making all the information you provide easy to understand. I have a question that seems to have been answered in a roundabout way previously on your podcast. But I would love an answer that is specific to my concern.

I have been dealing with autoimmune issues for a few years now. Psoriasis since my 20s, and possible rheumatoid arthritis for about 2 years now. I’m 40 years old and had always followed recommended dietary guidelines, but that didn’t prevent these issues from happening. I follow a mostly AIP, lower-carb diet, but I know that I am not in ketosis most of the time.

My carbs include small amounts of fruit (usually about 1 serving per day), sweet potatoes, and all vegetables. I sometimes make AIP friendly treats that are low in sugar, but do contain some starch. I now eat higher amounts of fat than I ever have from Kerrygold butter, cream, avocados, coconut oil and olive oil. I feel really good most of the time and love how I can wait longer between meals and don’t seem to get hangry. I stay quite active, work standing up, kick box 2-3 days per week, do a little yoga, and still mix in a little running, biking and swimming from my triathlon days.

My question for you guys is this: If I am not in ketosis most of the time while eating 50-100 grams of carbs with my higher consumption of fat, am I jeopardizing my cardiovascular health? I don’t believe I have a blood sugar issue. I test it sporadically, and even after a higher carb meal, it is under 120. My total cholesterol jumped from 208 to 269 during the last 3.5 years, LDL went up to 139, triglycerides in the 50s, HDL in the 90’s. Of course, my HMO doctor wants me to retest in three months because it is so high.

Thanks so much! I wait anxiously for your new episodes every week! You guys are great!

17. Can toxins released from fat stores while eating keto lead to eczema?

I’ve been doing keto really well and keeping my daily carbs under 20 grams and I feel great. My energy and mental clarity are awesome and my waist has dropped from a size 41 to a size 35 in only 6 months. But I've developed a serious and painful case of eczema on my feet. These blisters are huge and my guess is that my body was holding onto toxins in my fat cells which are now being released and overloading my body leading to the eczema. Am I right about what’s happening or is there some other mechanism at work with this? If it is toxins being dumped into my bloodstream, then what is the best method to deal with this? Should I slow down on my ketogenic diet or should I attempt chelation or some other method to bind and remove these toxins.

Thank you for everything you do!

18. Is it better to have a little bit of real sugar sources instead of sugar alternatives?

Dear Jimmy and Adam,

For long-term health, I eat low-carb/higher fat and I prefer to eat whole foods. So when I see recipes that use erythritol, stevia, and similar sugar alternatives, I replace those with honey, pure maple syrup, molasses, table sugar, and brown sugar instead. I also cut the amount of sugar in recipes by about 50-70% or sometimes omit the sweetener entirely.

Erithrytol and other "tols" also upset my stomach and gut. What so you think about using small amounts of "real" sugars as I described? I am fortunate to have a healthy metabolism and can tolerate a few more carbs than my husband, for example, who is carb-sensitive like you guys. Would a small amount of a sugar (say 2 Tbs total at the most) be too much for him?

Thanks guys! I love Keto Talk and am a big fan.

20. What, if any, impact does the use of cannabis have on ketosis?

Hey guys!  I love your show and I've learned so much from it—so thank you.  Now my controversial question: Medical and recreational cannabis is starting to become legal in many states, so I have to ask this—does cannabis use have any effect whatsoever on ketosis or a ketogenic diet?

Thanks for addressing this!

TESTIMONIAL FROM LISTENER

Hey Jimmy!

I wanted to update you and Doc Nally on how it has being going using Symlin (synthetic Amylin) to help reduce my insulin requirements and high morning blood sugar levels. I have to tell you I’m absolutely blown away by how well it’s working and the major metabolic improvements I’m seeing in just 10 days of using it so far! I’ve dropped 19 pounds in just 10 days right in the middle of my birthday and Thanksgiving. I’ve been able to totally drop my fast acting insulin and have brought my basal insulin down from 34 units twice daily to 22 units twice daily because I was having low blood sugars!

I test my blood glucose 7-8 times a day to keep an eye on that and my readings have all been in the normal range even with much lower insulin injections. In fact, the A1C “estimator” on my glucose logging app is showing my A1C dropped by .4 in 10 days. I’m sleeping WAY better. I’m feeling full after meals now instead of starving an hour later because the insulin and Amylin are better regulated.

Thank you, Dr. Nally! I had never even heard of Amylin before he mentioned it on Keto Talk. I’m becoming an expert now that I’m researching it more and more and seeing the effects it has on me personally. Now I want to help more diabetics learn about this “other hormone” that I suspect is missing in a lot of unknowing people!

You guys are awesome! Thanks again.

- What scientific studies and references can I use to counter anti-leto arguments?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I have been listening to Keto Talk since about Episode 20 and have been hooked every since. I am a Registered Dietitian in Washington state and I promote low-carb to my patients. I recently had a fellow dietitian reprimand my efforts to promote fat in the diet as healthy. It’s very frustrating!

She said that promoting saturated fat was not evidence-based especially for key cholesterol markers, but I have found several studies that show saturated fat as healthy or at worst neutral in the context of a lower-carb diet.  My own n=1 experiment has put my triglycerides at 75 and my HDL at 84 eating around 100g carbs daily with plenty of animal fat in my diet. The other “evidence based” crap that is promoted in our clinic has to do with getting 130g of carbs as the daily minimum. In Episode 41, Dr. Nally said the liver creates about 280g of glucose daily via gluconeogenesis.

Is there a study or cited reference I can get my hands on? Any help is appreciated. I am so thankful that low-carb is accessible and I have joined the Diet Doctor website as a member to stay up to date on the latest, greatest in low-carb. I am pretty immersed in the low-carb culture online and it’s always such a shock when my own colleagues haven’t figured it out yet. My next step is to attempt full-on keto. Thanks for all you do. It keeps me going in a world of carboholics!

1. What transports ketones from the liver to the cells? Is it insulin like it is for glucose?

Hey guys,

The information you share on this podcast is priceless, so please keep it up. I have a quick question for you to address: If insulin is the vehicle that transports glucose to the cells of the body for energy and high insulin levels is what leads to inflammation and disease then, what is the vehicle that transports ketone bodies from the liver to all the cells? Please tell me it’s not insulin because that would be weird,

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I just finished listening to the audiobook for Keto Clarity and I’m now listening for the second time. I had gastric sleeve surgery over a year ago and have lost 100 pounds.

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I’m curious about doing ketosis seasonally like our ancestors would have been where carbs are virtually gone during the fall/winter/spring months and then the sweeter and starchier foods are abundant during the summer. I'd love to hear a discussion on what this cycle of eating would have looked like so I can mimic it today.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 45:

- I'm in great shape but my ketones are in the tank. Why?

Hi Jimmy and Adam!

I am a 34-year old male in great shape and have around 12% body fat. I’ve been eating LCHF for about 2 years now and was doing IF for the first 14 months. I decided to try a strictly ketogenic lifestyle about 4 months ago and I am finding it almost impossible to get into nutritional ketosis. The highest reading I’ve tested on my Precision Xtra was 0.7 and I tend to average around 0.2-0.3 daily. I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

I have tried everything from 40 net carbs to 20 total carbs. Slashed my protein to less than 90 grams a day and my meals average around 3-10 total carbs with 55-70 grams of super clean fats. I take MCT 3 times a day and even have a Ketonix breath ketone analyzer. I do not eat any sneaky carbs or sugars—never have and never will. My fasting blood glucose always seems to be in the 70’s and I just can’t figure out what’s up with my ketone levels. I try to consume around 250 grams of fat a day.

I work 7 days a week and am literally on my feet all day. My sleep is around 6.5-7.5 hours a night and I am militant with my regimen. I do take a lot of supplements but nothing from what I’ve read about them should be keeping me out of ketosis. I am beginning to think I have something else gong on. My energy is nonstop from the moment I get up until I go to bed. I do not drink. I feel fine, but I just know that I have never crossed into the 1.0 mmol and can’t for the life of me understand why. Digestion is fine, hydration is fine, electrolytes are good and my recent blood tests were great except for my doctor’s puzzled look at how and why I feel and look so good with a cholesterol of 249 and an LDL-C of 174. I am not worried about those because my HDL/LDL and triglycerides/HDL ratios are well within range. I workout 2-3 times a week. PLEASE HELP ME figure this out.

Thank you and I absolutely love your show!

- Eating Lots of Carbs, Sugar May Raise Risk of Cognitive Impairment, Mayo Clinic Study Finds

1. Does being in ketosis lead to cold, clammy hands and feet?

Hey Jimmy and Doc,

I've been keto for over a year now and feel great! My energy levels are up, inflammation is down, and I lost a few pounds too. The only negative thing that I have noticed since starting this is my hands and feet are constantly cold and clammy. Is this even related to being ketogenic? If so, what can I do to fix this?

Keep up the great work guys!

2. Does better sleep and exercise suppress hunger due to a rise in ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night hungry. I’ve heard you guys talk about getting adequate fat at the dinner meal and I try to make sure of that. But this hunger in the middle of the night is annoying. I am usually able to drink some water and go back to sleep without eating anything. Then when I wake up in the morning, I’m no longer hungry. I’ve also noticed that sometimes I’ll wake up in the morning hungry and will go running or lift weights at the gym. Counterintuitively, after the workout I am no longer hungry and can even skip lunch. Is it safe to assume that the reason the hunger goes away in these instances is because I am able to sleep longer and exercise which helps me go deeper into ketosis?  What do you and Doc Nally think?

Thanks!

3. How did our early ancestors get salt in their ketogenic diet?

I have a puzzling question for you guys about Paleo and ketogenic diets. If we are to believe that our early ancestors ate a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet, then what were their sources of sodium? Surely they needed it then just as much as we do in modern times. How dd they get it into their diet? And if they didn’t consume adequate levels of salt while in ketosis much of the time, how did they survive without it? What foods were consumed to provide this key element in their diet? Thanks so much for taking the time to answer this one. I Iove Keto Talk because I learn so much. I only wish I lived in Surprise, Arizona so I could see Doc Muscles on a regular basis since finding a low-carb friendly doctor isn't that easy.

Thanks again!

- Isn't the problem with weight loss woe on keto too many calories?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc! You guys are the best! I love all the work you do to spread information and support for keto. But I do have a tiny bone to pick with you guys if you wouldn’t mind hearing me out!

I am a certified holistic health coach who has specialized in the ketogenic diet for many years now. I love it with my whole heart because the benefits are outrageous and undeniable! However, I have noticed some do not find weight loss success when attempting keto because of one MAJOR issue in my opinion. I see it time and time again. It’s the calories.

I'm not talking about a person mistakenly eating too many carbs for individual tolerance nor am I talking about accidentally eating too much protein. These are people who are fully keto-adapted with adequate blood ketone readings who are working out and sleeping great, managing stress well, and yet they are not losing weight. Why? It's because they are eating too many calories to give their body a reason to need to tap into body fat stores.

This is one of the things I have heard you guys repeatedly tell people often on Keto Talk—“calories don't matter, as long as it's coming from fat and as long as they are eaten to satiety.” But this doesn't actually work in real life for most people and it also doesn't make any logical sense. After all, if it were indeed sound and true, people would not be able to maintain weight in ketosis. Health coaches like me who have been in ketosis for years would just forever keep losing fat until we keeled over. But this isn't happening because if a person is maintaining ketosis, they are eating enough calories from fat that the body doesn't have to convert body fat into ketones and homeostasis is achieved.

I hear you guys say it's hard or darn near impossible to eat too much fat because you get full. But, most people coming into this have leptin resistance, binge eating disorder, and other issues that bypass satiety completely. Without proper coaching and calorie accountability they get totally out of control on keto just like any other plan. Now, I'm not saying health isn't still improving on keto even with excessive calories. Healing will indeed still happen. But not weight loss for most people. I can confidently say that after years of consulting that this is unfortunately the rule and not the exception.

Most people eat way past satiety after the first month or so of keto. It seems that at first they have such great appetite suppression from ketones and are able to stop before consuming calories in excess. But then that satiety dwindles and they start snacking on fat bombs, macadamia nuts, olives, cheese, and other non-protein or carb containing drinks or shakes with tons of cream. It’s an overload of fat calories. They are still having 1 to 2.5 blood ketone readings but they just keep packing in the calories from fat and stop losing weight. Every now and then even gain a little. It’s not water weight either, it’s body fat.

Then, they totally believe all the myths that keto doesn't work and you only lose water weight in the beginning and that consuming fat ultimately makes you fat. I HATE those myths. We know ketosis is da bomb diggity and will absolutely shift every metabolic marker in the right direction. And in my opinion weight loss is the least important. But not to my clients! And not to the average person interested in health and wellness. I get clients who have tried various high-fat programs and they end up at me after they get frustrated gaining weight and feeling cruddy.

I wholeheartedly believe this weight gain is completely unnecessary if keto-adaptation happened as a result of using the fat on our bodies preferentially over the fat on our plates. What are your thoughts on this? Thank you so much for addressing my little pet peeve and I hope I didn’t come across as a jerk! I want to see this movement succeed and thrive and this is one topic that we need to get right to communicate the best information to the masses.

You guys are my heroes so thank you for doing what you do!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 44:

1. Will taking steroids kick me out of ketosis from the higher blood sugar readings and lead to weight gain?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I’ve been in very strict ketosis since the Low-Carb Cruise, including giving up my beloved cream and cheese and all sweeteners, and I’m seeing great results. My FBG is averaging 70-100 each morning, and that’s a Type 2 Diabetic on no medications with my doctor’s blessing for four years. Also, I’ve dropped significant weight since the cruise!

I tore the lateral meniscus in my right knee and was given a steroid injection in my knee for it. The orthopedic physician said to expect higher blood sugars due to the steroid. Indeed I have already noticed that. Yesterday I saw readings of 140 and 158 and this morning my FBG was 130—much higher than I’ve seen since the cruise. My knee definitely feels better from the steroid, but from what I’ve read online, I can expect to see higher blood sugar readings for several more weeks after taking it.

What I don’t want to do is be kicked out of ketosis because of this nor do I want to gain any of this hard earned weight loss. Is this asking too much? FYI, I don’t even use medications anymore for my diabetes because I’ve managed it so well by eating a LCHF diet for about 5 years. If need be, I could call my doctor and get a temporary prescription for something to deal with these higher numbers….or, is a temporary raise in blood sugar readings not something to be concerned about?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for your podcasts, I’ve listened to all of them and will go back soon and listen again. I love your sense of humor with each other and the info you share is so positive and effective!

Sincerely,

Elaine

2. I’m getting great ketone levels, but I’m slowly gaining weight and not sleeping well. What’s the deal?

Hi guys,

I have been keto for five months and my blood ketones range from 2.0 to 3.5. I am a 49 year old female on hormone replacement for menopause. I have not had one cheat and I eat around 1100-1300 calories a day. I keep my protein around 50-60g a day and total carbs at 20g or less. But I am slowly gaining weight and feel soft. My body measurements are slightly increasing as well. I walk 10,000 steps a day, but my sleep sucks with me waking up all through the night. But my ketones remain good. I have tried upping my calories, lowering my calories, and changing my sweetener. My thyroid is fine and I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Stacey in Surprise, AZ

3. Is there any harm being done if someone isn’t all in eating a ketogenic approach?

I have to tell you that I love Keto Talk.  You cover many of my questions as I am just getting started on keto. One thing I am concerned about is that my husband is not fully on board with this lifestyle.  Since I do the cooking he eats what I present. But he tends to sneak in a few extra carbs when someone offers a piece of pie, potatoes, or corn, for example. I don't want to do any damage to his health so my solution has been to cook with healthy fats, eat real food, and offer him extra veggies, keep protein moderate and not nag him when he has a piece of fruit or any of the previously mentioned foods. He does have some weight to lose but does not have blood glucose issues like me. Plus, he drinks alcohol daily. Do you think I am helping or hurting him? I have heard people say keto is an "all or nothing” approach.  I feel good and I have noticed that we both have more energy so I don't want to go backwards. 

Thank you for getting the word out to all of us.  You guys are so easy to listen to!

4. How best should a long-distance runner fuel themselves in a keto-adapted state?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally!

Podcast junkie here. I’ve been listening to Jimmy’s podcasts and combing through old episodes for over two years now. You guys are knocking it out of the park with this new podcast.

I recall that Doc Nally was a long distance runner for some time.  I am looking to get back into long distance running (half marathons, possibly a full marathon in the future) and am puzzled about the best approach for long run fueling for the keto-adapted runner. I really enjoy the sense of community in those events and am a sucker for a fancy finisher’s medal.

Specifically, for long runs leading up to a half marathon, would simple electrolyte replenishing be sufficient?  Or is some sort of slow release starch such as UCANN SuperStarch appropriate for those distances (or maybe for training over a half marathon)? I want to stay away from Gatorade and gels going forward and welcome your thoughts.

Thank you both for a wonderful, informative podcast!

5. Am I doing something wrong with my ketogenic diet because my blood ketones never get close to 4.0 mmol?

Hi Jimmy,

First, thanks for putting together the Clarity Saga (Cholesterol & Keto) and keep up the good work. Cutting to the chase, I have a question for you:

On social media, there’s a lot of people who proudly hold up their sky high ketones numbers as trophies. I don’t want to say any bad thing about anyone specific as many of these people are inspirational to those of us doing keto. But sometimes all I see from them are posts with blood ketone readings over 4 mmol/l. Are these people getting those numbers because they’re measuring after meals? I’m simply asking this because, on a good day, I get readings below 1mmol/l (fasted, first thing in the morning) and can end up my day reaching 3 mmol/l (before dinner, by 9pm). My glucose is typically around 80mg/dl. That said, what is the best time to take my blood ketone readings?

Regards from Brazil,

Bob

6. What role does ketosis play in the injury recovery process?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I happened to be talking to a couple of friends who are recovering from sports injuries, particularly connective tissue injuries (one with knee ligaments and cartilage damage, the other with a torn bicep tendon). Keto has lots of benefits, but I'm not sure I've heard anyone mention injury recovery.  I doubt keto would play a significant role, positive or negative, but maybe it does. Great podcast.  Keep up the great work.

Thanks!

Pete

7. What is the ideal ketogenic plan for getting strong, building muscle, and getting ripped for an athlete?

Hey guys, I'm 30 years old and a huge fan and love listening to you two give out great advice. The one thing that I have yet to hear is advice for bodybuilders and powerlifters. I think you could do an entire podcast episode just on this topic, but I would really like to know the best macronutrient breakdown or sample eating plan for 190 pound male that wants to stay strong, build muscle, get ripped and vascular. Arnold Style! 

I've been doing the keto thing for almost two months now and have lost some weight (I was 208 for powerlifting and now I'm 195). I don't have to eat 8 meals a day anymore, and have great energy. But I don't feel as though I'm getting as lean as I could. Think about the muscle and fitness guys. I know they are all on anabolics, but is it possible to get that look or close to it on keto if I train hard and eat right? I'm not a normal person or an overweight person, I'm an athlete and I would love your advice on how athletes should run their keto lifestyle. 

sample eating plan:

black coffee
tablespoon of coconut oil
tablespoon of butter 

4 eggs
3 slices of bacon
spinach and onions
28g of shredded cheese
hot sauce 

5 ounces of ground beef (83/17)
veggies
28g of shredded cheese 

Steak or Fish cooked in olive oil and/or butter
Salad or veggies
Feta cheese or sour creme
whole avocado (150g's) 

Maybe a scoop of whey and almond milk - totally dependent on training 

30g Carbs
125g Protein
225g - 300g Fat 

THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS!! KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK! Mike Peltz from Revolution Training is my coach and I know he works with Dr. Nally.

8. Is there something I can do in my ketogenic diet to maintain healthy kidney function?

Hey Jimmy and Adam!  

I absolutely love your show.  I previously tried keto and failed several times, but you have motivated me greatly this time and I am now officially keto-adapted.  I don't miss carbage anymore and love not being hungry all the time. I used to eat 200g of protein per day on the SAD diet and of course 40% carbs.  

I found out I have high creatinine levels of 142. I switched to keto three months ago and checked my creatinine again and now it's 154. I take 2g (HCL) of creatine in my workout, 5g (blend from BPI) in post workout. I am hoping by removing creatine from my diet and eating less meat that my kidneys will begin to function properly. I was discouraged that only changing to keto has seemingly made my kidneys worse, but it could have been what I ate the night before.  

I historically eat a lot of red grass fed beef but obviously that has been reduced via keto. I weigh 200 pounds at 9% body fat and aim for about 80g of protein.  I'm cutting out creatine and checking my cholesterol and CRP and kidney functions in a couple months. Can you share any tips to maintain healthy kidneys on the ketogenic lifestyle. I understand that you lose a lot of salt on keto that needs to be replenished. I drink a gallon of water per day and then coffee on top of that.  I also take essential amino energy for my workouts.  Keep up the great work...love listening to you and the Doc!

9. How long would it take me to reverse my keto-adaptation where I preferentially burn glucose over ketones?

Jimmy and The Doc,

I absolutely love the show guys!  After growing up being a busy, athletic young man, I was hit pretty hard at 18 years old with severe sciatic pain when I went away to West Point. Not being able to run or exercise due to the pain, I ended up being medically discharged and sent back home. Because of its insidious nature, it was a full 15 years before I knew the pain's cause: Ankylosing Spondylitis. In the meantime, as my pain levels continued to increase, my activity levels dropped as well. Unfortunately, my diet remained unchanged: unadulterated junk. Exacerbating the problem further, I was eventually put on pain management, which knocked my testosterone in the dirt and took away any motivation I would have otherwise had to do something about my ever-worsening situation. To add insult to injury, my primary care doctor, with the best of intentions, put me on exogenous testosterone, but failed to monitor or manage my estradiol. This put me on a carb-fueled, estrogen-enhanced high-speed railway to morbid obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and the parade of horrible things that were to follow. It all looked bleak until I discovered the ketogenic diet (and kicked the meds and found a good endocrinologist who has helped me reverse some of the hormone issues).

I went fully keto in March this year and combined it with an intermittent fasting/Bulletproof Coffee protocol (skipping breakfast and lunch M-F) with ketogenic meals for dinner and on the weekends. I’ve already lost a lot of weight and things are moving in the right direction. But here’s my question: Volek and Phinney say that keto-adaptation can take between 4-8 weeks to happen depending on the person. But what about the converse of that? Once you are keto-adapted, how long would it take for you to get out of being keto-adapted? I understand a cheat meal will kick you out of ketosis, but how quickly would your body revert to burning glucose as the primary fuel source over ketones? And if you eat high-carb dinners on a cruise, for example, and continue to intermittent fast with MCT oil during the daytime, would that preserve the keto-adaptation in the short term of 7-10 days?

I have no intention of going back to my old ways of eating. But my wife would like to take a cruise, and thinking ahead, I'm curious as to how far I can stray off course without sacrificing keto-adaptation.  If it's too risky, then I'll just stay the course.

Keep up the awesome work!

10. Are egg yolks and fatty cuts of meat on my ketogenic meal plan raising arachidonic acid leading to inflammation?

Jimmy & Adam,

I am a long-time listener to Keto Talk and the Livin’ Lavida Low Carb shows.  I have read Keto Clarity, Cholesterol Clarity, and have purchased the Ketogenic Cookbook and I have enjoyed all three.  Recently, I began reading Barry Sears’ The Anti-Inflammation Zone. Sears writes, “Eating the wrong kind of fat will increase your levels of AA (arachidonic acid), which will generate silent inflammation . . . egg yolks and fatty cuts of meat contain high levels of AA.  So eating foods rich in AA is like adding kerosene to a fire.” Please give me your take on this.  I am a diabetic (currently with normal blood sugars due to low carb eating), I have managed to lose 100+ pounds, but I also have Atrial Fibrillation, intermittent gout, and high blood pressure.  I tested for high sensitivity C-reactive Protein about a year ago, and it was extremely high (above 10).  Therefore, I am very interested in lowering my inflammation levels.

Keep up the good work with Keto Talk.  It is one of my very favorite podcasts!

Thanks,

Gary

11. Are sugar-free Monster Energy drinks okay to be consuming on my ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy,

I just listened to Keto Talk and your discussion on diet soda. I’m eating about 2,500 to 2,700 calories a day and it’s broken down to

I appreciate you guys very much!  Thank you!

12. How can someone who has had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy get into ketosis?

Jimmy and The Doc,

I LOVE your podcast and listening to you two chew the fat! I found this show the other day and have listened to all of them already.  Can't wait until next Thursday for a new one. I am almost 1 year post op from a vertical sleeve gastrectomy and I would love to go keto. I am not sure how to modify this to suit my eating requirements. I can only eat 2-3 ounces of food at a time and already steer clear of carbs, but I can't seem to get into ketosis.  I was wondering if there is something out there that could help me with the macros.  Thank you and keep on keeping on.

Thank you!

13. Does a ketogenic diet cause hormones to go into a tailspin in women and what can be done about it?

I got very strict and serious about keto two weeks ago and everything was going good. But then I started getting dizzy, losing my vision, blood pressure changes etc. which all felt like hypoglycemia. I went to the ER and they checked me out and said I am very healthy and suspected it could be metabolic or thyroid related. When I went to see my GP, he said the ketogenic diet threw my hormones into a tailspin and triggered almost all of my symptoms. A friend of mine who started keto the same week I did had to stop the diet for all the same reasons as mine. Her doctor told her to stay with a higher carb amount until her hormones leveled back again then go slowly so as to not shock an already unstable hormone level. After visiting several women’s keto group, this seems to be a common problem for women on keto. It’s a very scary feeling so I hope women get the answers they need to deal with this. What can we do?

April

14. Do you need carbs to break down fat as is being taught in medical school? How does it fit in the Krebs Cycle?

How does keto work with the Krebs cycle? I'm taking Anatomy and Physiology 2 and just walked out of a class where my teacher kept insisting every way until Tuesday that you must have carbs to break down fat because of the limiting effect of C4/oxaloacetic acid. I still plan on sticking to keto, but would like to be able to back up my science. Thanks!

Cynthia

15. Can ketones produced by a low-carb, high-fat diet trigger insulin production like carbs do? Why or why not?

Hey Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show but I have a question: From my understanding when I eat carbs those are broken down into glucose which trigger insulin production and that opens muscle and fat cells. But can eating fats that are converted into ketones trigger insulin as well?

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 43:

- Should I be concerned about the fat related digestion results of my stool analysis?

Hi guys,

I recently had a CDSA stool analysis to look for more information about my health. Under the absorption category, my fat related digestion is all quite high. I am wondering if this is common with keto since the test is norm referenced vs non-keto or is this something that needs to be addressed? Also of note is that the pH is quite high. Again, is this a keto thing? And what suggestions would you have?

Thank you,

1. Can a ketogenic diet be beneficial for morning sickness during pregnancy?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Love your show and never miss it.

My wife is 6 weeks pregnant and she suffers a LOT with morning sickness. She just can't stand it. I’ve been keto for about 10 months now (and loving it), but she is not. In fact, she does not have any desire or hunger at all because of all the morning sickness. And I'm afraid eating the fat on a ketogenic diet would make it worse since she is not fat adapted.

My question is: what role could a ketogenic diet play in relieving these morning sickness episodes? Is it safe to start a ketogenic diet at this point in the pregnancy? Would the keto adaptation phase of 2-4 weeks make it even worse given the possibility of keto flu and electrolyte imbalance?

I really want this topic to be addressed. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work,

Fernando from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

2. Is eating ketogenic detrimental to someone with a binge eating disorder?

I've been living keto most of the time for the last year and a half, and I've lost 130 pounds so far. I'm still overweight, but I spent most of my adult life well over 300 pounds for a 5'4" woman. Needless to say, this is a huge change. Aside from the weight loss, eating keto has also helped to lessen the depression I've been struggling with since puberty. The problem I'm having is that I periodically get sucked into days of binge eating non-keto foods, which leaves me dealing with not only re-acclimating to ketosis but also a significant biochemical mood dive. When I'm on track (which is most of the time) my macros are 80/15/5, and I weigh/measure/plan/track my food so that's quite accurate. My total carbs are around 20g/day. I very rarely test my ketones due to the cost of strips, but when I do my numbers are between 1.5 and 4. I test my fasting blood glucose regularly and it's usually in the 70s.

When I'm looking at books and online programs for dealing with binge eating or food addiction, they all seem to be against even standard low-carb diets, much less keto. Their reasoning is that the restrictions lead to binge eating. Have you found that people with binge eating or food addiction problems need to eat a more "balanced" whole foods diet in order to mentally recover? I really don't want to walk away from keto because it's been so amazing for me, but I'm also scared that I'll get sucked fully back into binge eating junk and end up back to where I started. Eating keto does decrease my cravings and appetite but for me they never quite go away. I've tried intermittent fasting and it's consistently tipped me over into binging.

Thank you for what you do! I really like listening to your podcast.

3. Are my carb cravings late in the day while eating keto physiological or habitual?

I’m insulin resistant and know that I do better and feel better on a keto diet. I’ve been low carb for 5 years. Everyday, I vow that it will be the day that I stick to a strict keto diet. I do great in the mornings eating bacon, greens, and eggs for breakfast, maybe some dinner leftovers for lunch such as a protein with cooked veggies or leftover salad. But the late afternoon and evening after dinner is when my best-laid plans fall apart. I grab a few handfuls of popcorn that my teenage daughter brought home and stashed in the pantry. Or I eat a bowl of sugar-free (but obviously not junk free or very low carb) ice cream I bought during my last trip to the store. Or I’ll go in the cupboard and grab a small piece of dark chocolate, but I’ll go back for one or two more pieces before I’m satisfied.

Are these cravings for something sweet and creamy, or salty and crunchy physiological or habitual? I know they keep me from being totally keto. One of the things I tell myself when I reach for that handful of popcorn or that bowl of sugar-free ice cream is, “I’ve been on track most of the day/week/month, I can treat myself to some of this.” Sometimes I don’t tell myself anything, I just have this deep craving, this obsessive thought, that something sweet and creamy will quench my craving. It’s like cigarettes or something!

Do you guys have any clue what can I do about it?

- What impact do steam rooms and saunas have on ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

Love the podcast. Very informative and loads of useful info. I have a question regarding the use of steam rooms and saunas. Will the use of these have any effect good or bad on ketone production? I typically use a steam room with temperature over 40 degrees Celsius once a week. Obviously it speeds up heart rate and is supposed to help the liver detox.

Thanks for any info you might have!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 42:

- How can a low-carb, high-fat diet RAISE blood sugar?

Since I got diagnosed six months ago I've tried fasting, only to stop when my blood sugar went way up. This book does a great job of explaining why, and why working through that is worth it and will lead to lower sugar levels later. It also does a great job of suggesting what changes to make to make fasting safer without having access to expensive lab tests. Continuing to supplement with bone broth should stabilize electrolytes with negligible effects on insulin levels.

I do wish the book addressed those of us who get very insulin resistant on high fat diets. I've gone on low carb only to see my blood sugar numbers skyrocket. I switched to a fat fast only to see them keep climbing to exceed 300. I was craving rice and vegetables so I broke my fast with a big bowl and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 122. I know that there is some sort of genetic link to the 20% or so of diabetics that cannot tolerate high fat, but there is no information about that here at all.

I personally feel best and my numbers are normal when I eat moderate protein, starches only in the form of vegetables, beans, and berries, and very low fat. The problem with this is when I "cheat" and eat something bad, my numbers go higher and higher than ever before each time. Is the answer to eat high fat with something starchy once a week? Or is the answer to fast longer than when my blood sugar hits 300? I've been experimenting on myself for months but I still can't seem to figure out how to reverse this. I wish the book was more comprehensive for people like me.

- A change in diet could help stop your migraines

1. What is the average blood glucose of someone eating a ketogenic diet?

For people on a pure ketogenic diet, what is the average blood glucose supposed to be? Jimmy, I’ve heard you say yours runs around 100 when you’re eating keto. I wonder if anyone else has levels of 55-65 and feels great like me? And do you think that in days of old for people living in Northern climates, they would have kept such low BG levels in the winter months losing the weight they put on in the summer from eating carbohydrates that were more plentiful?

Laura

2. Do you have to count free-form amino acid supplements into your total intake of protein?

The reason I am contacting you is regarding the process of gluconeogenesis or converting protein to glucose and remaining in ketosis. My questions are as follows:    

- Does the body process free-form, amino acid supplements the same way as it processes amino acids provided in food?  

- If I’m following a ketogenic diet and taking free-form amino acid supplements, would I have to factor in the amino acid supplements as part of the total intake of protein (so as not to go over the prescribed limit) in order to stay in ketosis? 

Thank you in advance for your attention.  I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,

Dee Dee

3. If a pregnant woman eats keto, will that express epigenetic obesity genes in the baby forcing keto for life?

I have been researching the topic of ketosis in pregnancy as I have been using it to control latent autoimmune diabetes and I want to continue through my pregnancy (I’m currently 2 months pregnant). I've listened to the many podcasts you have done on the topic and know it’s is generally safe for the mother and baby.

However, my only concern is nobody seems to address the topic of epigenetics. I've been trawling through loads of research and blogs and reading about how ketosis metabolically mimics starvation, especially if ketone levels are high like mine with an average of 6.0 mmol. How do we know this does not send starvation signals to the fetus. Will the baby be forced to eat a ketogenic diet for life lest they suffer from obesity due to the thrifty gene being switched on?

Thanks,

Ruth

Adam, thank you for your service to our country. My dad was career Air Force, my son-in-law is currently a special forces' officer in the Navy, and my son who is a senior in high school is planning on attending The Citadel! We are thankful for the men and women who selflessly protect and serve our country.

And thank you guys so much for the excellent information in your podcast, websites, and books.  I am a mom of 7 and have been keto-adapted for four months after following a Paleo diet for years.  I have lost 20 pounds and am down to my ideal body weight with an average blood glucose level of 77-80 each day. I feel great!

My question is for my 20 year old daughter. She is a college student majoring in culinary arts and business. She has been diagnosed with essential tremors which are affecting her ability to execute fine details in cake decorating, fine cutting skills, etc.  She currently takes a women’s probiotic, True Calm, magnesium, krill oil, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, and liver capsules. These supplements are great, but I truly believe the keto lifestyle would greatly reduce or slow the progression of the tremors.  

Like most college students, she does not get enough sleep and has pressing deadlines and events to prepare for. Her recent blood work showed triglycerides at 120 and fasting glucose of 90. We have diabetes that run in our family also. My daughter has been drilled with the food pyramid in her nutrition classes, but I think she would be open to suggestions from an outside source (other than her mother!).

If she were your daughter, what would you recommend? Thank you for considering my question! I am thankful for the resources God has provided through you guys. Thank you again for educating us all.

Thanks,

Robin

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I read an article this week that dismissed the ketogenic diet for some specific health reasons. Here’s the link: http://www.popsugar.com.au/fitness/What-Keto-Diet-41519711

They say in the column that “if you've been considering the ketogenic diet, think again.” It looks to be mostly erroneous, but they make one point about weak bones from the ketones pulling phosphorus and calcium out of the bones that I've never heard about before. Here is the paragraph where they discuss this: "Weak bones and stress fractures happen because ketones are acidic and one of their jobs is to pull phosphorous and calcium out of your bones. When ketones are your sole source of energy, you have a buildup, and thus, you deplete your phosphorous and calcium. This can lead to stress fractures and bone problems."

Do you guys have any thoughts about this?

Kind regards,

Jon

- Why I've Stopped Telling My Patients To Lose Weight

1. Why did I experience more anxiety when I started on the ketogenic diet?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc,

After hearing Tim Ferriss talk about using keto for Lyme disease, that made me want to give it a try. I dove right into the diet and was sleeping amazingly well the first few weeks which ran counter to what I had heard about getting into ketosis. But there was one problem that reared its ugly head: ANXIETY! I found I was much more anxious all day, everyday while in ketosis and it became way too much for me to handle. So I returned to my lower-carb, but not ketogenic diet and the anxiety stopped…but then my sleep wasn’t great anymore. I’m frustrated and struggling with my weight again.

So what about the anxiety I experienced eating keto? Does this typically happen to people on this way of eating and is there anything I can do differently in the future if I decide to try it again. I'd love your insights because I have no idea who else to ask!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Jenny

2. Do the calories from ketones spilled over in the breath and urine account for weight loss on a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

Has anyone ever quantified the caloric value of ketones that are lost in the breath and urine over the course of a day. I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately and my theory is that perhaps the weight loss that happens on the ketogenic diet is not due to burning more calories but rather simply due to spilling them out in the form of ketones. The analogy that comes to mind is how the mileage of a car drops as it spills hydrocarbons in the exhaust. What do you think?

Yours truly,

Mike

3. Can an allergic reaction directly impact your blood ketone levels?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

It seems that my blood ketones drop significantly from 2-3 mmol down to 0.5 or less when I have an allergic reaction.
Would an allergic reaction from hay fever or asthma, for example, that comes with an inflammatory response impact my ability to be in ketosis? Is it due to histamines or does the reaction to allergies lead to an insulin surge that lowers the ketones? Are there any studies in this area?

Thanks,

Artour

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

After reading into the new nutrition label updates from the FDA, a few links later and I found myself casually browsing the attached government page providing the recommendations for the consumption of carbohydrates. It’s really illuminating stuff to me. But I became concerned when I read they claim we need 130 grams of carbs a day "to provide the brain with an adequate supply of glucose." This has left me worried about my intake of carbs which is less than half of that.



Do we really need 130g of carbs a day? What are the negative effects of not reaching this daily intake? Could I maintain ketosis at that level of carbohydrates to fulfill this requirement? Please help me understand this.

Thanks,

Tori

- Butter Becomes Scarce with Low-Carb High-Fat Diet Hype

- If you can become intolerant to carbs, can't it also happen with fat?

Hi guys,

Thank you for the wonderful resources you have made available with your podcasts and books. I have listened and read, with great enthusiasm, everything about keto for a few months. I watched Jeff Volek's YouTube lecture entitled "The Art and Science of Low Carb Living: Cardio-Metabolic Benefits and Beyond” and it struck me in the video that if a person can be intolerant to carbs and thus uses them inefficiently (as defined by fat storage rather than efficient fat-burning). Couldn’t the exact same thing happen with fat? It stands to reason that perhaps some people will NOT burn fat efficiently and it too will become stored? Or is that possible? Please advise.

All the Best,

Ann

- Interpretation of the evidence for the efficacy and safety of statin therapy

1. Am I doing something wrong in my ketogenic diet if my heart rate is slower?

Hi there,

I’m trying the keto diet and have noticed my heart rate is super slow at just 60 beats per minute. I feel good and am calm, but since I'm not an elite athlete and simply go to the gym about 4 times a week, this seems odd. I’ve heard a really slow heart rate can indicate a metabolic disorder. Is this anything dangerous I should correct in my diet and lifestyle?

Thanks!

Katie

2. Should I avoid pork on my ketogenic diet to avoid high sulfur exposure?

Hey guys,

I really enjoy your podcast. But I do have one concern. My husband who grew up around a slaughter house does not want me to eat pork because it is a scavenger. He says that whatever the pigs eat becomes a part of them in four hours, including high levels of sulfur compounds which attach to the joints and connective tissue in the body. The result of this is that it causes your joints to get soft which is NOT a good thing. The idea of keto is great and I am working toward becoming keto-adapted. But I am not going to use pork which has seemingly helped so many people get there. I would love to hear your thoughts on this and if you know anyone else who may have the same concerns I do.

Sincerely,

Mary

3. Could the vegetable glycerin in vaping liquid negatively impact insulin and ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc!

Long time listener, love your podcast and listen every week. I’ve been a nonsmoker for a year and a half and keto for almost three years. When I stopped smoking I took up vaping and it helped me quit no problem. However, I've noticed since I started vaping I almost immediately started feeling very lethargic with muscle weakness. I also started gaining weight and had visible fat develop around my hips and in my belly that wasn't there before. I have tried everything to figure this out and then I learned something startling about one of the main ingredients in the vaping juice—propylene glycol. It seems these things are directly impacting my ketone production in a negative way and I discovered in my research that they spray it on skinny cows to promote fat gain. Yikes! So I switched to vaping liquids with vegetable glycerin instead and wanted to know if it impacts insulin and ketone levels as well that could be leading to my weight gain. There are mixed comments about this online. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks!

Gina

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

Your podcast has changed my life I was making so many mistakes just trying to eat low-carb and not ketogenic. Your discussions and answers to common questions has really helped me refine the art of eating this way. I'm surprised how often your answer is to eat more fat but it really seems that the most common problems are a result of inadequate fat consumption in the diet.

I'm a 36-year old male and have been in ketosis for almost 3 months. I’ve lost 31 pounds and use the Ketonix to test for ketosis. It always shows red, so I'm confident I'm in steady ketosis. During the past 3 months I have not cheated and don't even feel any cravings or temptation to cheat. I'm happy to eat low-carb, high-fat for the rest of my life. My food staples are tea with heavy cream sweetened w/Splenda for breakfast, salads with extra dressing, and burgers with no bun for my other meals. Also, I hate to admit it, but I drink a lot of Diet Coke.

My concern is I'm starting to feel my gout flaring up in my foot. My wife says it is because I drink too much diet soda. Could this be the cause or is something else going on? When I began eating low-carb, I don't think I could'
