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?

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!

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.

Butter or olive oil? Eggs or no? New nutritional review cuts through the myths.

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.

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

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 61:

From last week’s episode, the difference in proteins found in chicken eggs vs. duck eggs

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,

Francesca

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

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 57:

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,

Dave from Toronto

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

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 54:
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!

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!

Dr. Inna, ND

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!

2. Does a ketogenic diet lead to heartburn? Why is this happening and what can I do about it?
 
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? The only time I have ever had it before was during pregnancy. It gets so bad now that when I lay down for bed it's very difficult to sleep! Any suggestions on how to correct this problem?

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.
 
Thanks for your help!

- 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!

- 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!

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

JIMMY AND ADAM'S NEW KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS

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

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 47:

- Thriving on raw eggs, world's oldest person marks 117th birthday in Italy

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,

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!

Julie

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.

19. Do you get all the gut health benefits of eating spinach if it is cooked vs. raw?

Dear Jimmy and Doc Nally,

Does it matter If I eat my spinach cooked in butter versus raw? I am trying to eat the two cups of spinach daily for gut health that Dr. Nally recommends.

Thank for all you do!

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!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 46:

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,

Thanks in advance,

Chris

2. Does Bulletproof coffee on a ketogenic diet stall or prevent fat loss?

Several keto experts online rail against Bulletproof coffee for people who are doing strict keto. They claim it may be stalling people looking to produce fat loss. I would love to hear your opinion on this. Thank you so much for what you do. I love your books, Jimmy!

Thank you,

3. If you have had weight loss surgery, how do you best implement a ketogenic diet?

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. With 2/3 of my stomach gone I can't eat very big meals and was wondering if you could give me some ideas on how to make the ketogenic diet work for someone like me.

Thanks,

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!

PJ

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!

Rob

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!

Donna

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!

Carina from Orlando, Florida

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!

Tim

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!

Jolene

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,

Joe

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!

42: Keto Raised Blood Sugar, Migraines, Amino Acid Supplements, Thrifty Gene, Essential Tremors

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.

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

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

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've stuck to it without diet soda. But now after 3 months I think I have enough momentum that I could give it up if I have to, although I do really enjoy drinking Diet Coke. What’s making this difficult is it doesn't seem to interfere with ketosis, so I'm really hoping this isn't the problem with my gout flareups.

Thanks,

Seth

- Will I ever get to eat "normal" so I can have carbohydrates again?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I just went on a full binge and listened to all of your Keto Talk podcasts within 2 days!  You guys are great with a perfect balance of humor and lots of science without being biased. I am now a firm believer and follower of you guys. I am completely new to keto and have never felt better in my life.  I just got done detoxifying from black mold so my brain loves all the healthy fats to make me preform at optimal levels and my sugar cravings are nearly gone. I will be ordering your books soon to get recipes and also understand this way of eating even more.  But I have a question for the show.

I would like to have a "normal" lifestyle where I can eat carbs again from time to time.  I have heard the great benefits of going full keto all the time, but I am a believer that you should always vary your diet and have other inputs so your body understands other things and doesn't explode when you eat a cake.  If I want to keep carbs as an option should I go the full 8 weeks to get fully keto-adapted and then slowly put them back in?  Or should I be introducing carbs back into my diet sooner so I never go full keto?  I want to still be able to run on gasoline from time to time, but prefer diesel for the long haul. Is what I’m describing okay?

Thank you guys for being so amazing and interesting to listen to and helping me find the diet I’ve been looking for my entire life!

Your new Ketonian Friend,

Philip

1. Do you have to do keto differently if you take medications for hypothyroidism?

Dear Jimmy & Dr. Nally,

I just found your entertaining and informative Keto Talk podcast. Thank you both for taking the time to share your knowledge with us.

I am very new to keto but I do understand the process. My question is about going on a ketogenic diet while on thyroid medication for hypothyroidism. Does the way you approach keto differ in this situation compared with those who are not taking medications?

Thank you and I look forward to your podcasts each week.

Sincerely,

Valerie

2. Is there something missing in my ketogenic diet that makes me bruise more easily?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally! 

I have been trying to do keto for a few months now.  Some months are easier than others.  Since going low-carb/keto I have noticed that I have random bruises show up and I seem to bruise more easily.  What key nutrients and minerals could I be lacking in my diet that could be causing this?  And what supplements do you suggest taking to prevent this?

Thanks so much! I love listening to all of your podcasts.  Both you and Dr. Nally are so helpful and informative!

Amy

3. Does it take longer for women to lose weight because of hormones when they go ketogenic?

Hey Jimmy,

I was listening to your LLVLC Show podcast with Dr. Robert Cywes who mentioned the difference in men and women with a ketogenic protocol. He explained how men typically drop lots of weight at first and then level off while women have a slower start, regulate their estrogen levels, and then over time, start to increase weight loss. I wonder if Doc Nally has any thoughts on this progression for women or if he's seen that in his practice?

I’ve been keto for a few months and the weight is stalled a bit.  I’m trying not to freak out. Thanks for your great show!

Mindy

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hi Jimmy and Doc,

Thanks for the great podcast. I recently discovered you guys and I’m methodically making my way through all the episodes. I have been on a ketogenic diet for a few months now and have lost 10 pounds so far. I measure my ketone levels using the Precision Xtra meter and regularly measure between 2.5-4.5 mml/L. I recently bought the Ketonix breath ketone device and have started using it as well. I wanted to see if you guys could touch on the overall differences between these two methods of ketone measurement. I have heard that Ketonix is supposed to correlate pretty closely to the Precision Xtra. But how is this possible since they measure two different ketone bodies. Can you give a range you would consider good for someone who is in nutritional ketosis when measuring with the Ketonix?

Thanks much and keep up the great work.

Shawn

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 38:

- The role of probiotics in nutritional ketosis (this study and this study)

1. Should I ignore my body fat percentage if all my health markers are superb while eating keto?

Hey guys, I love Keto Talk and hope you can help me with my question. Here it is: How important is my body fat percentage number?

Both my parents died in their 70s of heart disease and dementia and I was slowly following the same path. One year ago I decided that I would do whatever it takes to not be like them and discovered keto and intermittent fasting. My brain and skin are now clearer, I’ve lost 10 kg and for the first time in my life at the age of 44 I have great cholesterol, blood pressure, heart rate, liver, glucose and vitamin D levels. My psoriasis and inflammation are gone, I sleep better and have more energy.

But my body fat percentage measured by a Tanita scale has plateaued at around 32%. Last year when I began eating keto, it was around 38%. My goal is to be in the "normal range" but if everything else is great, should I just ignore the body fat percentage?

Thank you for any advice!

Liza from Australia

2. Does eating ketogenic reduce your desire for consuming alcoholic beverages?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Thanks for your podcast and the Clarity books.  I'm 8 days into eating 20 grams of carbs and moderate protein and feeling great. Interestingly, my habitual hankering for a glass of wine or vodka soda at 5PM has totally vanished. I haven't heard about this effect anywhere.  Have you guys heard of this?

Thanks for all you do,

Marilyn

3. Can taking blood pressure-lowering medications negatively impact ketone levels?

Do blood pressure medications, such as thiazides as diuretics, impact my ketogenic diet in any way? I know that these drugs have a tendency to spike blood sugars and assume that would mean they would be detrimental to getting into ketosis.

Thanks for your insights. 

Hank

4. Should you cut your meals in half to minimize the negative impact of protein on ketosis?

I was wondering if cutting meals in half and spacing them out by a couple hours is good for keeping the protein lower in one sitting. I make an omelet with 27g of protein, 55g fat, and 1g carb and I eat half and then save the other half for three hours later because I'm not sure whether or not that's too much protein at one time.

Any advice on this would be awesome!

Thanks and love the podcast,

Trevor

AND

Love you guys and your podcast. You are changing a multitude of lives.

I’ve read Keto Clarity and many other books about ketosis, but I’ve still got questions about protein.  Here’s the deal.  For my height of 5’6” and age of 65, I should be getting in around 80 grams a day.  But what happens when I’m not hungry, which is not unusual when you are keto-adapted, and I only end up eating one meal in a day. Am I supposed to eat all 80 grams in that one meal?  That’s a lotta protein as well as a lot of food to try and choke down.

Thank you,

Kathy

5. Does eating keto make your blood pressure drop too low and what can you do about it?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I'm eating ketogenic and have been experiencing what I thought was brain fog which turns out to be low blood pressure.  A friend recommended I measure my BP and it was 106/66 yesterday. I stopped at a pharmacy on the drive in to work this morning (the feeling is most noticeable when I am driving) and measured three more times with readings of 114/72, 108/66, and 107/63.  

I tried supplementing with salt tablets to see if that would help, but this didn't make me feel any better and my hands and feet started swelling. I've always had perfect blood pressure before starting keto. Other than adding more salt to my diet, are there any other ways to increase my blood pressure to a more normal range?  I don't want to abandon this way of eating, but if carbs are going to make me feel better I may have to.

Thank you again!

Faith

6. Why are my triglycerides high while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Adam! I've really been enjoying your Keto Talk show! I've been doing a zero-carb keto for four months. I'm feeling great and really enjoying it. However, my triglycerides are high at 180. My other parameters are all good. Fasting blood glucose is 60, morning blood ketones are between 3.0-5.0 mmol, HDL is over 50, blood pressure is 98/73. Are my trigs high because I'm underweight and have been losing weight? My body fat is just 14.9% and my BMI is 17.

Thanks again for a great show!

Michelle

7. Why does my heart race whenever I consume saturated fat eating ketogenic?

Dear Master Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

Can you guys talk about saturated fat just not agreeing with me? I noticed a high quality sugar-free chocolate bar with 22 grams of saturated fat would send my heart racing for 1-3 hours. Now I am leery of consuming anything with a high saturated fat content.

I have mindfully used monounsaturated fat oils like avocado and macadamia nut oil and really noticed this disappear completely. I get the rest of my fat from avocados, macadamias and pecans, and heavy cream as I tolerate dairy very well. I had a comprehensive food allergy testing done and nothing came back with a sensitivity. When I attempted to have a tablespoon chunk of cream cheese on my avocado, the same thing emerged with a racing heart for a couple of hours. The same thing happened with a couple of tablespoons of grass-fed butter. This seems to show up within minutes of ingesting saturated fat.

Keto has changed my life, giving me outstanding energy and stamina, much improved sleep, and a mental clarity never experienced before. Am I just stuck only eating monounsaturated fats on my ketogenic diet?

You guys are beyond awesome! Thank you both for your all the wisdom you share weekly.

Dennis

8. What are the exact signs I am looking for that show I’m fully keto-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a nutritionist who was a vegetarian for years and most recently Paleo and now here I am doing keto.  I have a blood ketone meter and have ketone readings consistently between 1-3. I’ve been at it for a couple of weeks now and in excellent health. What I want to know is what the exact signs are that am I looking for in my body or blood ketone levels to make sure I am fully keto-adapted?

Thanks so much,

Angela

9. Why is my weight loss so slow while eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles, 

I am a new listener to your wonderful podcast and love it. I look forward to every episode.

I’m a lifelong dieter losing and gaining the same 70 pounds or so many times. I love the keto diet and believe in it since beginning it in February. I have only lost 18 pounds while my husband has lost 65. I know I shouldn't compare myself to him, but I wonder if the reason I am going pretty slow on this is that my body is saying "yeah, right. Here we go again."

I keep track of my macros as I keep a food diary. This so-called uncomplicated way of eating has become a very complicated way of eating for me.  I am staying under 20g of carbs daily. I do enjoy a daily diet soda and I have a fairly sedentary lifestyle. I will admit I don't think I have been as faithful as I should be from time to time as unfortunately my carb cravings really haven't subsided. I find myself hungry often. 

I am 56 years old and post-menopausal. I use urine ketone test strips and I have NEVER registered as anything other than "trace." Is it possible I not only have never obtained ketosis, let alone become keto-adapted? Any advice? 

Debbie

10. Is percentage of carbs or the number of carbs most important to get into ketosis?

Hey guys,

I love your show for all the good advice and knowledge you share. My question is about carb intake. I am currently struggling with the amount of carbs to take in. Currently I'm consuming about 50-70 grams of total carbs a day and if you subtract fiber it would be more like 30-50 grams of carbs a day.

I'm active lifting 5 times a week and run or bike another 3 times and am wondering if carb percentage is more important (I'm currently at 10% of calories in my diet) or the 50-gram mark?  Any suggestions about this? Am I doing this all wrong?

Thanks for your time and looking forward to your answer. If this helps, most days when I test my ketones with the Ketonix I'm in the green.

Cheers!

Chris

11. Is there any connection between a ketogenic diet and cystic fibrosis?

Any information about Ketogenic and Cystic Fibrosis?

Thank you so much!

Ted

12. Are there some people who can’t tolerate eating a high-fat diet?

Hello Jimmy  & the Doc! I'm a huge fan! If podcasters had groupies, I would be that groupie with you guys. You've helped me tremendously, most recently, in convincing my husband that we needed to slow down on the peanut butter!

Here's my weird question I haven't encountered anyone else talking about this who didn't have their issues resolved by "giving it time" or by taking some kind of bile or enzyme supplement, so I'm a little worried.

My gallbladder was removed several years ago. When I first started eating keto, I had some loose stools that evened out more or less as I continued this lifestyle. Then it came back, and it was so much worse. I'm not sure if I can identify exactly when it returned, but it seems I'm not digesting anything anymore and my weight loss has stalled. The last 8 months or so have been very high stress, so I'm ashamed to admit I fell off the wagon a few times for a few weeks at a time. The liquid bowel movements would stop in those periods when I was back on carbs.

I take an ox bile supplement with most of my meals. I eat grass-fed gelatin on an almost-daily basis to work on repairing my gut. I eat plenty of greens and drink plenty of water. I've cut out most supplements to try to figure out if one of those was the culprit. I quit dairy for several weeks, no change.

I think my question is this: Are there some people who simply can't tolerate high-fat? If so, what is the lowest amount of fat that I could consume and still remain in ketosis? I realize that may be hard to answer and may vary from person to person...but I had to ask

Thanks again for your time and all that you do. You're literally making the world a better place.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 37:

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I'm loving this new podcast and as a fellow Southerner, I also love love love your way with words. I have a few questions about an MCT oil-based ketogenic diet as advocated by people like Dr. Terry Wahls and Paul Jaminet that has added a layer of confusion to my understanding of a ketogenic diet.

It seems unbalanced to me to rely mainly on MCT oil and coconut oil as my primary sources of fat just so I can consume upwards of 80g carbohydrates in my diet as Dr. Wahls and Jaminet suggest. Do we really need to add in so many more vegetables and supplements so that we're not in danger of scurvy and other health calamities while eating keto? And they both push resistant starch which I know you’ve covered on your podcast previously, but can’t you just eat green leafy vegetables and kimchi to cover gut health?

Neither Dr. Wahls nor Jaminet seems to believe it's ideal to remain on a ketogenic diet over the long-term, and yet both of you seem to be thriving on it after many years of experience. Can you help clear up this major confusion I’m having about what to believe? Thanks so much for your great contributions and wonderful spirit.

All the best,

Genevieve

1. What’s the purpose of fasting on a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’m learning that on a standard American diet, cutting calories just doesn’t work. I think the reasons are because the metabolism slows accordingly, cravings kick in, and that leads to binge eating junk food or just more food when the willpower disappears. Why doesn’t this same logic apply to fasting on a keto diet? If cutting calories doesn’t work on the standard American diet, then why is fasting on a ketogenic diet beneficial?

Thank you for everything,

Billy

2. Do you need to eat a calorie surplus while in ketosis to build muscle?

Hey guys,

I love your show and I listen in every week. I've often read that a calorie is not necessarily a calorie while researching keto and I believe I've heard you say the same thing on your show. My question is in regards to strength training, specifically powerlifting. I often see most of the fitness experts say you need to be in a caloric surplus to build muscle. Oftentimes these calculations work out to well over 3,000 calories. Eating a ketogenic diet, I don't know if I could ingest that much food without feeling stuffed all the time.

Is it possible that the old equation that says you need to be in a calorie surplus is not necessarily true in ketosis because you use a portion of your body fat to supply those calories? In the high-carb world your body would break down protein to supply the extra energy from glucose. But because we burn fat fuel, it makes me think perhaps it works differently for us Ketonians. I've been struggling to find a good answer to that question and I hope you and The Doc can help.

Thank you again for your show!

Jason from Canada

3. Should I add in a few more carbs to my keto diet, especially at night, to help with a pounding heart?

Hi Jimmy & The Doc,

I love your show. It is chock full of great info and you two are both entertaining and fun to listen to!

My question for you is this: Does the liver require adrenalin to make ketones? I ask this question because my heart is sensitive to adrenalin and it has been keeping me awake at night with noticeable pounding at night. I've tried adding in more electrolytes before bedtime which hasn’t helped. I've just begun my sixth week of keto and I had my heart checked out earlier this year via echocardiogram-it is normal.

Could I still be in ketosis if I raised my carbs to say 40g daily as a means for dealing with this? If I do that would my fat intake remain the same, or should I decrease it? Maybe if I just eat a few more carbs before bedtime it would help? What do you suggest?

It's frustrating because I want to remain keto, but I want to sleep at night too.

Thank you both so much,

Kellie

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

I am a 41-year old woman with 2 children and have been very active all of my life, playing NCAA women's basketball for 4 years in college, and have since run two full marathons and at least 15 half marathons.  I still have at least 2-3 workouts a week as I chase after my kids, averaging about 14K - 20K steps a day on my Fitbit.

But I have been struggling with one major problem—a consistently elevated blood sugar. I have Hashimoto’s and while pregnant with my second child, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes.  During that pregnancy I was extremely disciplined watching my carbs as directed by my doctor. And yet I still couldn't control my blood sugar and was required to take both slow acting insulin shots at night, and fast acting shots of insulin during the day.  I thought that this would improve after having my son, but it didn't.

Since the birth of my son in 2013, I have not been able to get my blood glucose under 100 mg/dL. I was on Metformin, but it didn't seem to help. In 2016 I went off of Metformin with my doctor's permission to see what would happen. Nothing has changed, so I was excited when I learned about the ketogenic diet. I started eating keto in mid-April 2016 and have been doing it ever since. I have lost 22 pounds (with 18 more to reach my goal) and I feel AWESOME with inches lost, increased energy, and improved focus. I’ve even done some extended fasts of 48-60 hours, but my blood sugar hasn't budged. My average morning fasting blood sugar level is around 105-115. I test my ketones with the Ketonix breath meter and it shows I’m on the low end of nutritional ketosis.

I intend to stick with the keto lifestyle as it is extremely easy for me and I love how I feel. I forgot to mention that my A1c has been around 5.2 for the last few years (which is encouraging), my cholesterol under 200, and my triglycerides around 130.  I guess that overall my numbers are good but I'm obsessed with that fasting glucose reading.  It seems to be my nemesis. ??I also forgot to mention that I have a Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology and every single word of science that you have described on your podcasts is spot on, and aligns with everything that I have been taught about cellular metabolism. Any words of wisdom on the timeline for lowering my fasting blood sugar level? Or, am I overly focused on this number? Is it worth going back on a low dose of Metformin again???Thanks for all that you do.  I love your podcast!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 36:

- Do supplements designed to lower cortisol improve ketosis?

Hi guys, I've heard you and Dr. Nally share many times about how cortisol impacts us in a variety of ways. So how do efforts to lower cortisol including supplements designed to do this interact with a ketogenic diet?

Tori

1. Can a ketogenic diet reduce plaque build-up in the arteries? How long will it take?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Most of us who are on the ketogenic diet tend to be overweight and have been for years. I would dare say many of us also have some plaque buildup in our arteries to some degree and are concerned about our heart health. So my question for you is this: what is the best way to reduce this plaque build-up and how long would it take to reduce it? I’ve heard you mention that your arteries are clean and in good health after many years of being on the low-carb/keto lifestyle.

I love this show so much you guys. Adam’s knowledge and patient experience on keto is fantastic and is a great adjunct with Jimmy’s experience with ketosis. I have all of your books, Jimmy, and love the knowledge you shared in them. Thank you for your work! 

Much regards,

Mick from Western Australia

2. Why am I getting winded and lacking energy climbing stairs since starting keto?

Hey guys,

I love your podcast. I've been devouring every episode like a fat juicy ribeye. I have been on my keto journey for about a month now and have lost about 17 pounds so far. I’ve noticed a lot of improvements in many aspects of my life from energy to eliminating my mood swings. But there is one thing that seems to boggle me—climbing stairs.

You would think that losing 17 pounds would make it easier to climb stairs, but it seems harder since I have been on this journey. I work on the second floor and have to climb three flights of steps everyday since there is no elevator available. I'm huffing and puffing by the end of it and my quads are burning, but only temporarily. I don't ever feel sore, but I almost always feel exhausted from this.

Are my muscles atrophying eating keto? Or since running on fat is like running on diesel, do I just lack the burst of energy that I had when I ran on sugar?

I’ve done moderate exercise during the week since I started the diet, including body weight squats about twice a week. I would imagine that my muscles are getting stronger but this stair climbing challenge seems odd.

Thanks again for answering my question,

Serei (pronounced Sir Ray)

3. Can a ketogenic diet help with jet lag?

Have you run into anything about whether there is a relationship between being in ketosis helping reduce the symptoms of jet lag?

Jim

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

First of all, great podcast!  Also, Jimmy I'm a big fan of all your bestselling books.

I recently converted to keto about 3 months ago consuming about 40 grams of carbs per day.  However, my urine pH has become low at 5.5 according to a 24-hour test prescribed by my urologist.  This test was prescribed because of some kidney stone issues which started several months before going on the ketogenic diet.

After reading up on low pH and how it can negatively affect my health, I think that I may be eating too many high acidic foods on my keto diet.  So many of the tasty keto foods I eat are very acidic.  I have started drinking high pH water and my urologist prescribed 1620 mg Potassium Citrite twice daily to elevate the pH.

Can you and the Doc please discuss the aspect of pH (in the body, blood, urine, saliva, etc.) and the keto diet on your podcast?

Thanks again for all you do to help people towards better health!

Regards,

Rob

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 35:

- Does each meal need to match your macronutrient ratio for keto?

Hi guys! I have been following the keto diet for the past two months. I just ordered the Ketonix breath ketone analyzer to see if I am in ketosis or not. I’ve already lost 14 pounds, but I have a question for you guys to address: Does each meal that I eat need to fit the macronutrient ratio of fat/protein/carbohydrates of 75/20/5? Or should I aim to be there each day? Thanks for helping me with this one.

Luba

- Is there such a thing as ‘fat but fit’?

1. Is coconut sugar and other natural sweeteners okay to use on a ketogenic diet?

Hello Jimmy & Doc Muscles,

For the past couple days, all I've done is listen to almost all of the Keto Talk podcast episodes you’ve aired. You guys are an amazing team with a fun and simplified format. Keep up the good work!

What are your thoughts on coconut sugar? Would it negatively effect the ketone levels when used in the diet?

Thank you and looking forward to your weekly podcast.

Maurice

2. If dietary fat doesn’t stoke insulin, then how can you gain weight eating too much fat?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc, 

I’m a big fan of your podcast.  Thanks for doing it. I have an interesting question for you today.

It is my understanding that dietary fat has no insulin response.  Let's assume I eat the my target level of carbs and protein, but I overeat with regards to target grams of fat.  How exactly would I store body fat from overeating dietary fat if it has no insulin response.  What metabolic mechanism would make fat from excess dietary fat?

Aloha,

Toby

3. Are the effects of gluconeogenesis from too much protein overstated?

Hey guys,

Just when I thought I understood why going over my personal protein limit would cause higher blood sugar, along comes this article: http://ketogains.com/2016/04/gluconeogenesis-wont-kick-you-out-ketosis/ …which states:
"The rate of conversion of non-glucose substrate to glucose (GNG) is relatively fixed – it is slow and consistent. The rate of GNG does not seem to be impacted by the protein content of the diet."

Now I’m confused. Is it excess protein consumption that triggers the negative effects of gluconeogenesis raising blood glucose levels and reducing blood ketones? Or is there something else going on with glucagon production or beta cell function? Could this be what causes an overnight rise in glucose?

Thanks for answering my question!

Carol

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hi guys,

Love your show and I'm a long time listener of Keto Talk and The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show. I've lost 30 pounds and have kept it off for a few years. I wasn't unhappy with my weight and just wanted to maintain it for a while. Now I am working on getting another 20 pounds off and I would be satisfied with it ending there. I would still be a little overweight but I'm okay with that.

Here's my problem: I’m a little frustrated by the fact that my weight will not budge during my period. In fact, I usually gain a few pounds and then it goes back to my normal weight with a few days after the period ends. But it does not go any lower no matter how low-carb I go during that week. Why does this happen? Is there anything I can do differently to make the weight come off during this time?

Thank you!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 34:

- Confusion about ketogenic diet continues to persist online

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for answering my question about undereating on keto in a recent episode. I wanted to follow up with you. Even though my question was quite vague in my personal details you still knocked it out of the park. Doc was right my protein was too low, my adrenals were stressed, and I had food allergies.

I've fixed up my diet and increased my protein and started taking supplements for adrenal support and wow what a difference. I know it will take some time as my body is still healing but I already feel so much better. I think I now know where it all went wrong. I started using an online keto calculator and it led me to make choices that weren’t right for me. I now test blood ketones as well as breath ketones with a Ketonix.

There is so much conflicting information about the keto diet out there I think people need to find a reliable source and stick to that. Steve Phinney as well as Jimmy Moore and Dr. Adam Nally are my heroes in this from now on.  I was on a keto group online and one woman asked if eating 800 calories a day was okay or not. People were congratulating her and told her to keep it up. Say what?

Thanks again for all your help and please know how important and wonderful you both are to us Ketonians! Keep up the great work!

- Is there a happy medium for pregnant moms on eating carbs?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I know you've talked before about pregnancy and that babies are born in a ketogenic state. I've got a question with a slightly different slant for you on this subject.

I had my first baby six years ago before I started eating low-carb. I had gestational diabetes during that pregnancy and I naturally started lowering my carbs to control my blood sugar. I was scolded at the time by my doctor and was told I can't eat low-carb during pregnancy. I was sent to a nutrition class and told to eat my "healthy whole grains" in moderation.

Fast forward, I have been low-carb for the past 3 years and have been more ketogenic for about 2 years. My blood sugars have been improving over the past year and I am now below that pre-diabetic level. Now I am now 10 weeks pregnant with baby number two.

I know of plenty of anecdotal stories about heathy babies born to ketogenic moms and I would like to stay low-carb because I feel like whatever keeps me the healthiest will keep the baby the healthiest. And I know I am extremely carb sensitive and I'm afraid that if I start adding in carbs to around 50g, it will raise my blood sugars and probably push me into a gestational diabetes again.

So my question really centers around the health of my baby. I understand that babies born to women with gestational diabetes are more at risk for developing diabetes. Chris Kresser has mentioned that babies whose moms eat a ketogenic diet turn on the epigenetics to begin storing excess calories.

Obviously I want my baby to be as healthy as possible and don't want to pass along all the struggles with weight and diabetes that I have had to deal with. So where does the happy medium lie?

Thank you for helping out this fellow Ketonian!

1. If I don’t sustain ketosis, am I getting the full benefits of being keto-adapted?

Hey guys,

I’ve been on and off the keto train for a few years now. My problem is I have a hard time staying in ketosis for longer than a couple of weeks. I still have a few carbage loves that I can't seem to shake. I get back into ketosis about 36-48 hours after falling out, but then only stay in it for a short time. Do I still get the positive effects of being in ketosis even if it is for a short time? Or have I never really switched over to becoming a fat burner? I love Keto Talk and listen to it every week. Thanks for all the info you provide!

2. What’s the purpose of exogenous ketones products like KETO//OS if the ketones aren’t sustained?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I am a 250-pound female, overweight my whole life, 57 years old, and have finally had enough of it. I decided to go on a ketogenic diet one week ago and have already lost over 10 pounds. I feel good, have more energy, and experience mental clarity. I have read many books and feel like I know what I am doing, although I am still not in ketosis yet.

I have been taking the Pruvit product, KETO//OS, and the urine ketone sticks turn purple a couple of hours after drinking it—but it doesn’t last long. I am taking two servings a day, but I don't understand the purpose of this product. I thought perhaps it would help me get into ketosis and stay there along with following a ketogenic diet, but that's not happening. I am not eating more than 20g carbs a day.

Any advice or direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Holly

3. Is there something about keto that leads to severe upper abdominal pain?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Several months back, I started the keto diet and my husband followed suit. He felt great for the first month and lost about 16 pounds. However, around week six, a big problem emerged for him. About 1-2 hours after eating, he would develop a severe upper abdominal pain that would last for at least two hours. The pain was in the center of his body around the diaphragm area. Sometimes the pain was so debilitating that he could barely move. 

We took him to the doctor for a full workup. They ran a gallbladder sonogram and function test, a liver enzyme test, and a GI scope—all came back normal. Ultimately he had to stop keto. As soon as he did,  the pain left.  When he has subsequently had low-carb meals, the pain returned with a vengeance. Any ideas why eating keto seems to bring this on and how he could prevent it? He would love to resume eating this way again if he could figure out this problem.  Thanks so much!

Codi

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hi Jimmy & The Doc,

First off let me say you guys and your show rock. You guys are really helping people and changing lives so thank you for that. I've been following keto for 7 months now eating 20g or less carbs a day and haven't cheated once. I haven't felt the need to because I'm loving it, it's the best thing I’ve done for my health, and up until now I've lost about 75 pounds which is fantastic.

I'm going to Thailand in October for a couple of weeks and I know this is swearing on your podcast—but I want to cheat! It’s not because of social pressures or anything. It’s just something I want to do for two weeks on my holidays trying all the new things and having a few beers with my friends.

As soon as the holiday is over I'll be back on keto before the plane touches down because it's amazing. What should I do to prepare for eating some carbs for those 2 weeks? I've heard you guys talk about swelling and kidney stones and I'm worried I might have an upset stomach for a few days when I return. I want to enjoy my holiday and everything, so what’s the best way to go about cheating to minimize the side effects?

Thanks,

Here are the new iTunes reviews of Keto Talk this week:

- Did my ketogenic diet lead to the development of kidney stones?

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

I have been eating keto off and on for the past three years. In April, I got really sick to my stomach for a couple of days and started to get a strange pain in my left side. It got progressively worse until I had to go to the doctor about it. By this time I could hardly talk because the pain was so intense. The doctor said I had the most kidney stones he’s ever seen for someone so young and I have a family history of kidney stones. Because many of them were so large, he said I’d need to undergo treatment to have them removed.

Ever since this incident with the kidney stones, many people have told me my ketogenic diet did this to me. I don’t believe that after reading Keto Clarity and other resources on ketosis, but I would love a more elaborate explanation to give to these "negative" people in my life. My doctor said my diet doesn’t matter and that I need to drink a LOT more water to prevent this from happening again. Did keto do this to me? And what can I do to help prevent this from happening again? Potassium? Fermented foods?

THANKS for considering my questions and I love your show.

Best regards,

- Worldwide obesity: Meat protein has as much effect as sugar

1. Can consuming more dietary fat offset a carbohydrate indiscretion to remain keto?

On one of the Facebook groups I'm on, people are often posting pie charts of their macronutrients to show what percentage of fat, protein, and carbohydrates they are consuming. One of the recent entries was from one who claimed they balanced out a slice of wedding cake they consumed by drinking a half cup of olive oil to keep themselves ketogenic. After reading Keto Clarity, the takeaway I took from that wasn’t necessarily about percentages as much as it was keeping carbohydrates low to your tolerance level, not exceeding your personal protein threshold, and then eat fat to satiety without necessarily worrying about calories. So how can this person justify drinking more fat to offset the wedding cake? This doesn’t make sense to me.

Thank you,

Kaiden

2. How do I keep from losing too much weight while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc! I've recently discovered your podcast and have been binge listening to get caught up.  They're extremely informative and a great resource! Thanks for all the great info!

I was wondering if you guys have any advice on maintaining weight while following a keto lifestyle. I’m 42 years old, female, 5'6" and 125 pounds. I've struggled my entire life with a low appetite and low weight and can only easily put on weight when I eat "carbage.”  My physician has recently prescribed Topamax 50 mg for migraines which makes the poor appetite even worse. I've been following a traditional Atkins diet for many years and recently tried a switch to keto to help transition my body composition from mostly fat to lean muscle.  The problem is with my already poor appetite, I just can’t seem to maintain my weight and the pounds are dropping off me at an alarming rate (down from 125 to 118 in one week).  

I have a crazy, busy lifestyle which I'm sure doesn't help. As a Physical Therapist and my typical day starts between 3:00-3:30AM with 1-2 hours of of cardio and weight lifting followed by a 10-12 hour workday 5 days/week.  I tried putting coconut oil in my coffee and making fat bombs, but the lack of appetite and busy schedule are still working against me.  I'd like to try keto again but I don’t want to lose any weight in the process.  Suggestions?

Thanks!

Nora

3. What dairy-free fat and protein foods can I consume on keto?

Hi guys,

I love listening to your show and keep up the great work!

I am intolerant to the casein (protein) in dairy. What sources of fat and protein can I eat if I can’t have dairy? Are there resources for eating dairy-free keto?

I’m looking forward to continuing to listen to your show.

Warmest regards, 

Penny in Australia

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

- Are there any medications keeping me from losing weight on keto?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Thanks for the awesome podcast, I really dig it. I started eating keto a couple of months ago and lost about 10 pounds right away. But I’ve been stalled ever since. I’m wondering if you know of any medications that might be preventing me from reaping the full weight loss benefits I should be seeing?

Specifically, I’ve been on a statin since 2008 when I had an A-Fib episode and an angiogram showed plaque. My doctor is very reluctant to take me off of it due to my family history of cardiovascular issues. I'm also taking medications for heartbeat regulation (cardizem), high blood pressure, and a baby aspirin. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic last November and can't wait to retake my blood tests in a few weeks. I feel great and my clothes are fitting me better, but I'm still only down 10 pounds.

Any advice would be great. Love the show and thanks again!

Joe

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 32:

- Will keto help with my Heriditary Angioedema (HAE)?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I have a tough question for you guys to answer. A few years ago, I was diagnosed with an incurable, scary condition called Heriditary Angioedema (HAE) and have a mutated C1-inhibitor gene. Apparently I lack some good enzymes and this has caused quite a lot of digestive issues. When an attack is triggered, blood rushes into my intestines, causing swelling and excruciating pain. My body then turns on itself with hives, vomiting, diarrhea, swelling of lips, ears, and tongue, with the possibility of my throat swelling shut.

When I turned to Paleo and started a fitness regimen a couple of years ago, I lost 60 pounds, healed my adrenal glands, and seemingly put my HAE into remission. Now I am using nutritional ketosis and doing very well with it. But last night I had an attack which is the first one I’ve experienced in a couple years. I know with ketones they can strip your body of good bacteria and possibly make me more prone to bad bacteria. My condition can also be triggered by the presence of H. Pylori. Can you share any experience you have with this? Should I be concerned about being in ketosis with my specific condition?

Thanks for your help!

- Detecting diabetes’ deadly ketones

1. Why are my blood ketones lower than I expect them to be?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I started a ketogenic diet in January starting at 388 pounds. Everything in my blood work and health markers were normal when I began and I’ve lost well over 60 pounds and counting. I was using Ketostix to test for ketosis and suddenly noticed they weren’t changing to purple anymore after a couple of months. Because I wanted to make sure I was in nutritional ketosis, I bought the Precision Xtra blood ketone meter. My first blood ketone test registered in at 0.6! I was pretty upset at that because I had kept my total carbs under 20 grams daily the entire time I’ve been eating keto. I’ve since seen my ketones rise to 1.2 but then they drop back down to 0.6 again. As you can imagine, I’m kinda stumped at how this can possibly be. Is this normal? What can I do to improve this?

Thanks!

Tim

2. Is it a good idea to continue taking a statin medication while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Muscles! I’m a faithful listener and fan of the work you are doing. Here’s my story: My father-in-law is on a statin medication for his high cholesterol and seems interested in going on the ketogenic diet. I obviously don’t think he needs to be taking the statin when he’s on keto, but I'm not sure if that’s a good idea or not. Is it safe to be in ketosis while still taking a statin drug for a bit longer before discussing with your doctor about getting off of it eventually?

If you have any feedback about this, then I’m all ears.

Thank you!

Josh

3. If I’m very active, what macronutrient do I eat more of to remain in ketosis?

Hi guys,

I love your Keto Talk podcast. Here's my question: my goal with keto is to shred fat but I don't want to necessarily lose weight. In fact, I'd actually like to gain 10-15 pounds eating this way. I have a very active job walking an average of 25,000 steps per day and I also strength train 4-5 days a week. My average daily calorie burn is around 3,500 calories as a 170-pound man. Because I workout hard and have a very active job, can I eat more carbs? If not, then what do I eat more of?

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a Type 1 diabetic who eats keto to control my blood sugar levels. My husband has been envious of the foods I've been eating and wondered if it would be beneficial to him. He is 6'4" and very slender at 180 pounds with an incredibly fast metabolism and a bottomless stomach. He has always had incredible blood sugar readings getting 80-90 readings consistently after eating high-carb meals. So my question is this: Is a ketogenic diet a good option for people like my husband who are healthy, with no insulin resistance, or carb sensitivity? Any suggestions or info you guys can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Erika

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 31:

- Should I fast after drinking alcohol to get back into ketosis quickly?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

I?m a Brazilian Ketonian and just discovered your podcast. I’ve already listened to all of your episodes. Thank you so much for your excellent work! It has really helped me on my keto journey!

I started LCHF/Paleo four months ago and one month ago I went completely keto thanks to your podcast. My question is this: I used to have some beer (5 cans) every month and I would like to keep up this occasional cheat. Is it a good tactic to do a 24 hour fast just after drinking the beers as a means for reentering ketosis as quickly as possible? Are there any risks associated with entering a fast with alcohol still in the system?

Thank you very much from Brazil!

1. Is it possible to undereat while on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I can't tell you how much I love this podcast and look forward to it every week! My question is whether you can undereat on a ketogenic diet? I've been keto almost two years now and I started working out more, but I'm just not hungry enough throughout the day to eat any more than 1000 calories a day. I know the keto way of eating is satiating, but do I need to push myself to get in more calories? I have gained weight, been tired, and it takes me forever to heal muscle pain after a workout. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Gina

2. Do varying levels of blood sugar negate the benefits that come from nutritional ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I have listened to all of your Keto Talk podcasts and I am always anxious to listen to the next. Awesome job you guys. Keep up the great work. I am a "health nut", not always living healthy but always wanting to learn and live the best healthy lifestyle I can. I am 52 years old, about 190 pounds and 5'10" tall. I started eating keto with intermittent fasting about 6 weeks ago and am loving it.

This week, I purchased glucose strips to start measuring my blood sugar as well, which has lead to some confusion. My glucose averages less than 81 (4.5 mmol), but on a few occasions as low as 61 (3.4 mmol) and I feel great. On the few very recent occasions that I have tested my glucose and ketones at the same time, I don't really see a "strong" correlation between the two. For instance my glucose could be at (4 mmol) and my ketones at (2 mmol); then another time my glucose still at (4 mmol) and my now ketones at (4.5 mmol).

My question is this: even though my blood ketones are at 4 mmol, am I still getting the therapeutic effects of being in ketosis regardless of where my blood sugar level is at? Is it a matter of just having the ketones present or are the benefits relative to the glucose concentration when it comes to efficacy?

Thanks again. One of your countless dedicated Ketonian groupies.

3. What is the best time to test for ketosis?

Hi guys,

Love your podcast. When is the best time to test for ketosis? I’ve heard somewhere a recommendation to test at the same time every day. What time would that be? Before or after meals? How long before or after a meal? Please help me understand this.

Thanks,

Michael

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hey Jimmy & The Doc,

In one of your recent podcasts, The Doc mentioned that you don't need to have surgery to have excess skin removed after losing a large amount of weight. Is that true for all forms of weight loss or just something with the ketogenic diet? I've lost over 100 pounds in six months going from 300 pounds to my current weight of 194—most of it happened with calorie restriction.

I still have quite a bit of excess skin and I'm wondering if a ketogenic lifestyle could have helped me avoid that. All that said, I have been on a ketogenic diet for the past several weeks and have no plans of ever stopping thanks to the raised energy levels, mental clarity and improvements to my arthritis. My biggest wish is that I discovered ketogenic diets back in February when I started this!

Thanks so much for everything you guys do. We are very fortunate to have both of you as experts in this field.

30: Healing Metabolism, How Much Fat, Keto IV, High Insulin, & Measuring Insulin Resistance


Thu, Aug 11, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday.

And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam return with more keto Q&A just for you in Episode 30.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 30:

- Will the body ever be able to handle more carbs and protein again after eating ketogenic for a period of time?

Love the show. I'm catching up on all the past shows and just finished Keto Clarity. I've transitioned from 20 years eating a low-fat, high-carb vegetarian diet. My body fat crept up to 35% and I've tried cutting calories, cutting fat, cutting dairy and never achieved the lean body I'm after…plus I was hungry all the time. I switched to Paleo for the last year at about 60g "net" carbs per day but didn't lose weight.  Now I realize I was consuming too much protein for me and 60g net carbs is also too much. I suffered from TERRIBLE sugar cravings and I'd succumb and end up binging on candy for a day then feel bad about it.

Now I've been following a keto diet of 80% fat, 14% protein and 6% carbs for the past 3 weeks. I have zero sugar cravings, but I'm not yet fat adapted. Fortunately, you've armed me with the knowledge that this will take several weeks so I'm being patient and sticking with it! I understand that the body can be mysterious and tricky. So my question is this—will my metabolism alter itself throughout the years in a way that will make it harder and harder for me to stay in ketosis long-term? In other words, does the body ever evolve to have lower thresholds for carb/protein intake after years of being ketogenic that would subvert my best efforts to maintain ketosis?

Thanks for all you do!

1. What is the perfect percentage of fats while on a ketogenic diet?

Jimmy and The Doc,

I love listening to you and your insights on this way of eating! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful knowledge. I've been doing keto for 2 months now and was wondering if there is a suggested percentage of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat that you would suggest that should make up my % for the day? It seems like I'm very high in saturated fat and low on the others. I’ve heard from others online that it should be 20% saturated and 80% poly/monounsaturated fats. What say you?

Best in Health,

Angela

2. Is there a keto-friendly IV solution when you are in the hospital?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

I'm a subscriber, and listener since Episode 1. About a month ago, I had an emergency hospitalization with my gall bladder. I’ve been ketogenic for 18 months and getting amazing results. While I was in the hospital, they hooked me up to a glucose IV for the five days I was there. My records show my blood sugars got as high as 175. But being insulin resistant with glucose running 24/7, I suppose that's not a surprise.  I could tell I was on glucose because I got hungry and pretty much stayed hungry until I was home for a few days and eating low-carb, high-fat again.  Is there an alternative us Ketonians can ask the hospital for?  I don't suppose they make IVs of exogenous ketones or beta-hydroxybutyrate do they?

Thanks,

(another way of saying "old electrical engineer")

3. Can you assume you have high insulin levels based on high blood glucose and low ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy & Doc,

Have either of you measured your insulin levels directly both in ketosis and out of ketosis, to verify:
1) that your insulin levels are too high out of ketosis (i.e., hyperinsulinemia / insulin-resistant), and
2) that being in ketosis normalizes the insulin levels?

Because there are many hormones and other factors at play, it strikes me that indirect markers of insulin levels such as blood glucose and BHB levels are potentially a weak proxy, at best. It would be like assuming that everyone who is excessively tired must have adrenal fatigue, when in fact there are many other possible causes for that symptom. If you haven't done the direct testing of insulin levels for your individual cases, then are you not merely operating on educated speculation?

I fully understand that testing insulin per se is more difficult and much more expensive than testing BG or BHB. However, I am concerned that the widespread assumption of elevated insulin levels in discussions around weight, diet, carb levels, and more has become an across-the-board reflexive answer, rather than an empirically confirmed cause in individualized cases.

Regards,

Tim

- How do you determine how insulin resistant you are?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally,

Thank you so much for your podcast.  I have listened to about half of them and enjoy both the information and your synergy and humor. I have been on a ketogenic diet for 4 months and am happy to report I’m improving my hip to waist ratio and decreasing my disease risk factors.

I am curious how someone could determine how insulin resistant they might be?  I understand from listening that you both know you are very sensitive.  What are the indicators that help people figure this out?  And do epigenetics play a role such as the MTHFR gene mutation?

Really appreciate your message and the work you both are doing for all of us!

Sincerely,

Carrie Wolf, DC

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam take another stab at answering your most pressing ketogenic questions in Episode 29!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 29:

- How do you handle family gatherings where non-keto food is served without disappointing family members?

My girlfriend went to her best friend’s house and her family had made a huge homemade pizza. She felt like she had to eat what was put in front of her and she made the choice to just eat the toppings. But she felt like she was going to be judged by not eating everything and thus offending these people she loves. What’s the best way to deal with this kind of situation? My girlfriend and I have been in ketosis for the past month without being kicked out and I think the social aspect of eating this way is the hardest aspect of being successful.

Thank you again,

Troy

- Exercise promotes the expression of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) through the action of the ketone body ?-hydroxybutyrate

- Does the kind of carbohydrate you consume matter in limiting your intake while pursuing ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc! A carb is a carb is a carb...or is it?! I have been following keto for about a year now and have actually seen a large number of my friends join in and start eating ketogenic as well. However, we have found that there is a slight difference between us. Some of us have noted and realized that we are so insulin resistant that we keep need to keep our carbs around 20g daily while others of us can consume upwards of 40g and still be in ketosis. One person in our group has stated that eating carbs, whether it is from sugar or bread or vegetables, all turn turn to sugar in your body. So she claims she can fulfill her 35g of carbs by eating M&Ms if she wants to and it will still process in her body the same as if she were eating 35g of vegetables. I'm not sure that I believe this but I am curious what the implications are on the body when eating simple carbs like sugar, fake sugars, and flour vs. getting them from complex sources such as leafy greens and other types of low-carb fruits and veggies.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer!

Carli

- Could eating a ketogenic diet act as a preventative or therapeutic treatment of cataracts?

Hello Jimmy and Doc,

I have this friend who recently found out she has a little cataract in her eye. Had she started keto earlier in her life, could this have been prevented?  Can ketosis actually help slow down the growth?  And is there any connection between your diet and eye health?

Thanks for all you do!

- Is it detrimental to fat-adaptation to come out of ketosis temporarily from time to time?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc! Can you be fat adapted and get kicked out of ketosis? I have been keto and fat adapted for over two years. I have lost 108 pounds and I lift heavy. Sometimes when I overdo the protein or eat enough berries to increase my carbohydrate intake, I measure my blood ketones four hours later and they’re 0.2 -0.4. Then it takes me 12- 24 hours to get blood ketones back above 1.0 mmol again.  So, am I still keto-adapted? Do I need to be worried about getting kicked out of ketosis like this? 

Mary

- How does someone with hyperinsulinemia deal with lower ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Adam,

My wife suffers from hyperinsulinemia and struggles to maintain a blood ketone reading of 0.6 mmol using a combination of intermittent fasting and eating within a 4-5 hour window. Her blood sugar reading average 4.4 mmol/L (80 mg/dl). From my personal experience, I know she’s not feeling the full effects of higher ketone readings such as mental clarity. Do you guys have any strategies for boosting these lower ketone readings in the presence of hyperinsulinemia?

Great show you guys! We enjoy your hard work and keto passion.

Thanks,

Simon from Australia

Thu, Jul 14, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam deliver some thorough answers to the most pressing ketogenic questions in Episode 28!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 28:

- Does a ketogenic diet lead to cardiomyopathy?

I came across this reference that suggested that a ketogenic diet had been associated with cardiomyopathy: http://www.neurology.org/content/54/12/2328.short

I wonder if you and the Doc have any thoughts on this. Thank you for your great podcast.

1. Why is diet soda bad on keto and what can I drink instead?

Hi Jimmy & The Doc,

I have been following a ketogenic lifestyle for almost a year—and there’s NO going back! Since last summer I have improved my health markers and lost 35 pounds (with 50 more to go) and have NO cravings. But my weight loss has stalled out since Christmas and your various podcasts & periscopes keep me inspired to NEVER eat the carbage on a regular basis again. One thing that still plagues me is my diet soda habit. Nothing else “hits the spot” like my Diet Dr. Pepper and I seriously need help in forming a strategy to get rid of the stuff. What exactly is so harmful about the diet sodas and how might that affect my weight loss on keto? What can I drink instead that might hit the spot since I’m not really a coffee or tea drinker.

Thanks for your help!

Kathy

2. Does a ketogenic diet lead to insomnia and how can I overcome this?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thank you for all your work in endorsing the keto way of living! I am having issues with maintaining ketosis due to insomnia, a racing mind, and loads of energy at bedtime. I've been Paleo for 3 years now but am still struggling to lose belly fat. I need to drop at least 8kg (18 pounds) to be at my ideal weight and I haven't eaten bread, pasta, rice, sugar, fruit or sweet drinks for over three years. But I’m still struggling to lose that weight.

My question for you guys is how do I overcome the insomnia that seems to be caused by being in ketosis? I love my mental clarity and energy when in keto but it doesn't last long because of the insomnia. I have tried 1/2 teaspoon of honey, 600 mg magnesium glycinate, and 1500mg L-Tryptophan at bedtime but all to no avail.  So I end up having a piece of my Paleo bread (10g of carbs) at 2am so I can get to sleep. I’ve always been a good sleeper before attempting a ketogenic diet.

Any suggestions in overcoming this would be great.

3. Would former contestants on The Biggest Loser be able to heal their bodies on keto?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’ve been reading a lot about the former contestants on The Biggest Loser gaining back their weight and messing up their metabolism even more than before they went on the show. Would these people benefit from eating a ketogenic diet? If they are constantly struggling with hunger, I would think eating low-carb, high-fat would be invaluable to them because it will satiate that hunger.

I read the description of what one of them was eating for breakfast: "one egg and two egg whites, half a grapefruit and a piece of wheat toast." No wonder he's so hungry! He's basically eating sugar for breakfast. I would be hungry about 20 minutes after eating that and never feeling satiated. Why has no one recommended a ketogenic diet to them?

As for their slowed metabolic rate, I am not sure what to think. Is that something they can overcome or reverse? Or is it permanent? Does that happen to everyone who tries to lose weight or only those who take the very extreme and unsustainable approach The Biggest Loser takes which I would think would be massively stressful to your body and soul? How does that work and can what you eat to improve your metabolism?

Thanks so much for any insight you can provide.

Clara

KETO TALK MAILBOX:
Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally. First I wanna say I listened to about 10 episodes today. I am so into what you guys are doing here. I was diagnosed as hypothyroid four years ago and recently diagnosed as diabetic with a fasting blood glucose of 254. I started keto in April and I’ve already gotten my A1c down to 6.1.

I've been checking my blood pressure and my readings have been over 150/90 several times. I can feel my arms and feet get numb throughout the day and I'm freaking out. When I eat half a grapefruit and tested again, I had two readings under 120/60.

Am I doing something wrong with keto? I listened to several podcasts episodes and couldn't seem to find any information about blood pressure side effects. When I test with Ketostix, it shows I am in ketosis. My blood sugar has not risen above 100 mg/dL, so why is my blood pressure so high?

Thank you!

27: Keto Talk Mailbox Blitz, Low Energy, Headache, Stomachache, Breastmilk While Keto


Thu, Jul 07, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time.

And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam blaze through a bunch of listener questions in Episode 27!

Here’s are the 12 questions Jimmy and Adam answered in this special Keto Talk Mailbox Blitz extended podcast in Episode 27:

- Testimonial from someone who learned his lesson why it's important to stay ketogenic all the time

Hey Jimmy and Doc,

Just listened to your new Keto Talk podcast and what a great show you guys do. You mentioned pancreatitis in a recent episode and I wanted to share an experience I had with this. I cheated on the diet with lots of carbage and sugar. The next day I experienced an acute inflammation of the pancreas. It wasn't a full blown case of pancreatitis but it was painful and lasted a few days. It also felt like I was having some gallbladder pain. My lipase level was 40 which was still within normal but still high. I can see how someone who was prone to this could easily have a severe reaction resulting in hospitalization. I have decided being on the ketogenic diet isn’t something to play around with. Now I'm all Keto all the time. I guess insulin resistance stays with me even though I lost a lot of weight. Thanks for taking on the tough areas and having great topics that are relevant in the real world. Thanks for your podcast!

Faithful Ketonian,

Jonathan

1. Is increased testosterone from a ketogenic diet a bad thing for women?

I think I heard Doc Nally say that going on a ketogenic diet increases testosterone in response to someone asking if ketosis can promote muscle building.  But isn't increased testosterone less than ideal for women because it promotes the development of PCOS? Or is the increase in testosterone levels while in ketosis only something that happens in men?

Christine

2. Why am I still struggling with low energy and low ketones after months of being in ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and the Doc, I am a 40-year old woman and I have been in ketosis for 5 months now. I believe in this way of eating, but am still struggling with spells of low energy and low ketones. I really want to experience the endless energy and mental clarity that everyone talks about. My ketones remain around 0.5 mmol and never higher. I still don't feel great on keto like I had hoped. On a positive note, my cravings have now gone, but I really want to feel better. Do you think I just need to give it more time for my body to adjust? I loved Keto Clarity and love this podcast. Thanks for your help!

Michelle in the UK

3. Can being in nutritional ketosis above 1.0 mmol cause painful headaches?

After 12 weeks on keto, I have only lost 15 pounds and 2.5% body fat. While I’m not pleased with this slow progress, I’m even more concerned with the massive headaches I get when I go over 1.0 mmol on the blood ketone meter. What is it about ketosis that could be causing these headaches?

Thanks for your great podcast!

Melody

4. Do artificial sweeteners and stevia raise insulin?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for all the brilliant advice on your Keto Talk podcast. I like to listen to your shows frequently and they really keep me motivated in a world that thinks I'm "keto-crazy.”

I have been on and off a ketogenic diet for about two years now and I have been back in ketosis for four weeks now. I’m determined to stick to it and have finally taken the plunge by giving up the artificial sweeteners. This means no sugar-free gum, no sugar-free sweets and the hardest thing of all for me is no Diet Coke! However, I am still using Stevia. I heard that just eating something sweet causes insulin to be released. Is this true?

I look forward to your answer.

Fozia from the UK

5. Is my ketogenic diet causing me to cramp up before and during my half marathon racing?

Hi guys,

I'm a 43 year old triathlete who's been on low-carb and keto for a couple of years to increase my endurance. I'm quite happy with my performance during training, but I am consistently cramping during my most recent races up to a half ironman distance. There are two different things I do prior to racing: 1) 12-24 hours before my race, I increase my carb intake from less than 50 g a day with 2 additional small sweet potatoes. Then I switch back to next to no carbs for the remaining 12 hours prior to racing. 2) I take 2 puffs of Ventolin inhaler as a preventer 30 mins before racing. I've had a couple of race-induced asthma attacks and they were not a pleasant experience so I tried adding the inhaler as suggested by my GP.

The issue is I'm cramping up badly even during warmups. I tried increasing my salt intake and magnesium glycinate supplement leading up in the weeks before racing. I'm concerned that it's a combination of keto and the inhaler causing these issues. Do you have any ideas for me to prevent these cramps? Keep up the good work.

Ivan from Malta

6. Is MCT oil a better fat to use on a ketogenic diet than other fats like coconut oil, cream, or butter?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I hear a lot of debate amongst people I know who are keto about which fat is best to use, especially in coffee or hot tea. Everyone has their own opinions about coconut oil, heavy cream, butter, ghee, MCT oil, avocado oil, etc. I am hearing from a lot of people to skip the coconut oil and use MCT oil instead. While I do have MCT and use it occasionally in tuna or on salads, now I'm wondering if I should use it everywhere and skip the other oils like coconut and avocado oil. What is you take on this for us Ketonians? Do you guys think there is an added benefit in using MCT over other fats or is is merely personal preference?

Thanks so much!

Carli

7. Why do I have a constant stomachache while I’m on a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I'm about 3 weeks into this ketogenic lifestyle and I've been experiencing a lot of stomachaches. I'm assuming this is because I came from a low-fat way of eating prior to this. Is there a way to help with the transition or is this pain just something I need to learn to live with?

Love the show and I’m looking forward to joining you guys on the Low-Carb Cruise in 2017!

Thanks!

Rachel

8. Do you have to be in ketosis to burn fat?

Thanks so much for the helpful information about keto that you discuss on your podcast. It has been a great help to me since my doctor put me on a low carb diet due to early signs of insulin resistance. I have a question that I’m still unclear about. Do you have to be in ketosis to burn fat?  I've heard a lot of discussions that you are automatically a fat burner when you consume 150g or less of carbs daily. There seems to be mixed messaging from lots of different people on whether or not you can burn fat outside of ketosis.

Thanks again for your great work!

Tina

9. Does being in ketosis lead to daily spotting and extended periods?

Hi Jimmy! Long time listener and loving the new show with Dr. Nally! I got inspired by your N=1 experiment with nutritional ketosis and went full keto improving my sleep, eliminating my cravings, and full of energy. It was a miracle diet for me and everything was perfect except for when I started to have spotting/on my period every single day. I let it go for four months because I just felt so good in ketosis. I contacted you and you connected me to Jackie Eberstein who recommended I increase my carbohydrates in 5g increments until the issues resolves itself. I didn’t want to do that at the time since I knew the cravings would come back. After seeing my gynecologist who wanted to put me on hormone medications, I instead binged on carbs and fell down that rabbit hole losing my period for the next year. Am I the only one this has happened to? Why did this happen?

You and Doc Muscles keep up the good work. You are changing lives and Jimmy you were the first low-carb person I ever listened to! Thank you for all you have done.

Mary

10. Are ketones in my baby’s breastmilk safe for her to consume? And why did my milk supply drop when I went keto?

Hi Jimmy, I’m an avid listener of all your podcasts, but I especially like Keto Talk. I gave the ketogenic diet a shot last year before I got pregnant with my second daughter and I loved how I felt on it. I had a difficult pregnancy and wasn’t able to continue the diet, but now that my daughter is 3 months old I’m ready to do something to lose the 20 pounds of baby weight that I have left to lose. I’m breastfeeding still and I just want to make sure that ketones in my body and in my breastmilk will be safe for my baby. Dr. Atkins recommended in his book for breastfeeding moms to consume a maintenance level of carbs while pregnant and breastfeeding.

Additionally, my milk supply when I started low-carb (but not ketogenic) after the birth of my first child significantly dropped. At the time I didn’t know that I needed to add salt and other minerals to my diet when reducing the carbs so that may have solved the problem. Before I go full-on ketogenic this time, I am wondering if there is anything else I can do differently to maintain my milk supply this time around. Looking around the Internet, I found this to be a common concern. Has The Doc encountered this with any of his patients?

Thanks so much you guys! Looking forward to hearing about any insights you might have.

Suzi

11. What is the impact of the supplement creatine on ketones, blood sugar, and insulin levels?

Hey guys! I am a big fan of the two of you and information you provide! I have a question today about creatine and ketosis. I lift weights 5 days a week and love it. I focus more on powerlifting than traditional bodybuilding and have seen great results the last four months switching over to a ketogenic diet. Before I dialed in my protein consumption to get into ketosis I always took two supplements: creatine and whey protein. I still take some protein right after a workout (maybe 15-20 grams) but nothing like I did before learning about protein's impact on ketosis.

With my protein consumption dialed in, I wanted to ask how the consumption of creatine impacts ketosis, glucose, or insulin levels? I typically have 7-10 grams of creatine per day. My ketone levels and glucose appear to be fine, but I still wanted to make sure there are no adverse effects I should be aware of as it relates to ketosis.

Thank you for your time!!

Patrick

12. Can I ease into ketosis as a way to avoid the dreaded “keto flu?”

Hi guys! I'm new to keto and am LOVING this podcast! Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to do it! I want to start my ketogenic diet by easing into it as a way to avoid experience the pain associated with the ”keto flu." I’m looking at it like a drug addict coming off the drug they are addicted to, I’d like to wean myself off of sugar and carbs. Is there any reason why doing this would be a bad idea?

Thank you for answering my question! I SO appreciate your show!

Thanks!

26: Can Healthy Fats Make You Fat, Zero-Carb Diets, And Healing A Damaged Metabolism With Keto

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam bring their A-game answering all of your questions in Episode 26!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 26:

- Should I limit saturated fats on my keto diet if a genetic test shows it is necessary?

I’ve followed a ketogenic lifestyle for 4 years now. My WellnessFX Cardio IQ blood test shows I have excessively high cholesterol (LDL-P 2478, Small LDL-P 498, triglycerides 98, HDL 76, hsCRP .02, Lp(a) 207, homocysteine 13.8, fibrinogen 175). Using my 23andme raw data, I discovered I'm not a good metabolizer of saturated fat. In fact, it claims that a ketogenic diet would be dangerous to my health. Will eating more fish and seafood, avocado, nuts and seeds, olives and olive oil work to deal with this while I try limiting red meats, eggs, butter, and coconut oil. I am normal weight and otherwise in good health.

Thank you!

1. Does eating healthy fats on keto make you fat?

I heard a guy named Ian Ryan from the Fearless and Healthy podcast say that eating too much healthy fat will still make you fat.  He said this on another podcast called The James Swanwick Show.  Is it possible to go too crazy on fat and still get fat? I think I already know the answer, but I am still curious.

Stan

2. Can you eat a zero-carb, high-fat diet and still be ketogenic?

Hey Jimmy and Doc,

I recently stumbled across an article about some people who switched over to a zero carb, high-fat diet which eliminated plant foods entirely. Their diet consists of almost entirely beef products rounded out by salmon, eggs, bacon, cheese and butter. My question is this: If you followed a ketogenic diet from a macronutrient standpoint, is this a sustainable way of eating. How would you be able to derive enough vitamins and minerals from the meat products that you could omit all plant foods?

Thanks,

Mike

3. What are your best tips for post-menopausal women doing keto?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally, thank you for Keto Talk. It’s an excellent podcast with relevant and useful information. Could you please give your top tips for us ladies who are post-menopausal and doing keto. We are a tough crowd and could use all the help we can get. 

Happy Trails!

KETO TALK MAILBOX:
Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I am a wellness chiropractor in Southern California who has been challenged by weight and blood sugar. From listening to your Keto Talk podcast, it sounds like you and Dr. Nally believe that the ketogenic diet is a permanent way to eat.  He says that he has been eating this way for over ten years.  Having only done this way of eating for a couple months, I have no idea about the long range necessity of it for me. But it would seem that our ancestors who lived before refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup did pretty well on a diet that was much higher in carbs. To me it seems who many people like me who have a damaged metabolism are eating keto as a means to heal. But it would seem like eventually a person could go back to eating more carbs and not gain weight and not throw their blood sugar out of balance. What is your experience with people who go on the keto diet, lose weight, get off metformin, balance their blood sugar and then after awhile try eating more natural carbs like fruit and some whole grains?  Does this happen or do people just need to stay on this diet indefinitely?

Thanks for taking the time to consider these questions.  I am working my way through all your Keto Talk episodes.  They are very helpful.

Humbly,

Dr. Santokh Khalsa

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 25:

- What are the benefits of ketosis and supplements on heart health?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m loving the Keto Talk podcast! I’d love to hear about the benefits of nutritional ketosis on heart health? I know you already touched on this topic a little bit in Episode 8 but perhaps you can cover some of physiological effects of nutritional ketosis on the heart and related health markers. Plus, I'd be interested in hearing about the cardio-protective value of supplements such as Mg, CoQ10, and others, on top of a nutrient-dense diet for us Ketonians.

Cheers guys! You rock!

- High cholesterol 'does not cause heart disease' new research finds, so treating with statins a 'waste of time'

- Can I get the benefits of ketosis without actually measuring ketones?

Hi guys,

I've been doing low-carb, high-fat since July 2015. I don't measure my ketones so I'm not really sure I'm actually in ketosis. But I have adhered to the diet dialing in my macronutrients making sure I average around 30 gram of total carbohydrates daily. Will I still receive the benefits of keto even if I possible don't get into ketosis often or ever?

Love your show, I listen every week!

Debbie

- Can a ketogenic diet help with hot flashes?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I’m enjoying your new podcast and was wondering if my hot flashes should go away with a keto diet. I’m sure I’m not alone in asking this question, so I look forward to your answer. Thanks guys!

Carol

- Is being in ketosis right for someone with gallstones?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I’ve been following a keto diet for a few months now and feel great. I’ve read Keto Clarity and listen to all of your Keto Talk podcasts. My question about my brother who is overweight and eats the SAD diet. A recent trip to the ER led to the discovery that he now has gallstones and the doctor is recommending removing his gallbladder all together. This raised my curiosity about how a ketogenic diet would affect his gallbladder. Is it possible that starting keto for him right now while he still has his gallbladder could help the gallstones or make them worse? I’ve also researched that fasting can increase gallstone production due to the decreased need for bile during the fasting period. Because many of us Ketonians intermittent fast as part of our lifestyle, I’m concerned this could be a problem for my brother as well.

Do you know if there is a relationship between very low-carb diets and Candida gut bacteria? I am suspecting I may have Candida and I have read online from people like Chris Kresser and Paul Jaminet that my very low-carb diet could be an issue. They make the claim that Candida feeds off the ketones. My diet is not necessarily ketogenic, but I’m sure I generate more ketones than the average person. So I’m not sure if the diet aspect would even affect me. My blood ketone levels are around 0.3 on average, which is below the level of nutritional ketosis (I can’t cut my protein as much as a ketogenic diet requires). This information is out there on the Internet and I’d love to have your take on this topic.

Thanks!
Grayson

24: High Blood Ketone Levels, Effect Of Alcohol On Ketosis, Doing Keto Without Exercise


Thu, Jun 16, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam drop more keto knowledge with you in Episode 24!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 24:

- Is there any such thing as too high ketone levels?

I have been strictly keto for almost 3 weeks (between 75-85% fat, around 5% carbs and between 10-15% proteins). I’m a bit concerned because my ketones levels have been between 4.5-6.3. And my glucose levels are 53 and 80.  My purpose in being ketogenic is to lose weight. As I understand it, if we go over 3, then you can’t lose weight. But, is this dangerous? How can I be between 1.5 and 3? Should I eat less fat? Should I eat more carbs? My eating schedule is eating in the morning (usually 1 can of sardines in olive oil and tea with 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of coconut oil). Then, around lunch or a bit later I eat fat again (usually 2 tbsp) and then eat at night. I do not count calories and eat until I’m satiated. Thank you for reading my mail and your response. It is great to have someone that I trust to ask my questions. It gives me courage.

- Diet lacking in zinc is detrimental to human, animal health

1. Is a ketogenic diet safe for the elderly?

My mother is 75 and in pretty good health overall. High blood pressure medication and about 25 pounds heavier than she would like. Is keto safe for this generation?

Craig

2. What are the effects of drinking alcohol on ketosis?

I like to drink a couple of gin and club soda in a nightcap (i.e., not sugar filled drinks). Is this okay?

Thanks,
Jeff

3. Can a keto approach work even if you can't exercise?

I have recently developed a heel spur on my right foot and arthritis in my hips. Only being 50, this is very discouraging as I have been exercising regularly the past 4 years to help keep my weight and size down. I am not able to do this now. Will this eating plan help with arthritis and enable me to still lose weight even though I am more sedentary?

Thank you!
Monica

KETO TALK MAILBOX

I would like to get Doc Nally’s input on Dr. Chris Masterjohn’s talk at PaleoFX this year. Chris discussed the impact of long-term low-carb diets on the sex hormones and thyroid hormone via the role of insulin on these hormonal pathways. He outlined that insulin plays a significant role in the production of thyroid and sex hormones in signaling to the body that we are in a sufficient state of energy to be reproducing. This is why he believes there is great risk of low sex hormones on long-term low-carb nutrition. Any thoughts?

23: Responding To The Paleo Mom Dr. Sarah Ballantyne's Claims Against The Ketogenic Diet


Thu, Jun 09, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam address a disturbing list of adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet claimed by a prominent member of the Paleo community in Episode 23!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 23:

- Why did I lose weight fast in my face, but not in my stomach on a ketogenic diet?

I have been in ketosis for about 5 weeks. Basically my face fat is a lot less than my body fat.  So i still have a nice sized gut but my face is pretty skinny. A lot of paleo are experiencing this as well. I’ve heard some people have meaty faces and some have more boney (maybe genetics). Koreans seem to have a nice big fat face and like 0% body fat, how are they doing this?! People in my life, friends and family are saying I'm too skinny, but it's my face not the body.  wondering if Doc Muscles has any ideas…maybe mineral deficiency or protein too low? I'm 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carb, calories are anywhere from 1300-2000. How can I make my face fatter?

Thanks Jimmy!

- Responding to each of the so-called adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet listed by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne in this Facebook post, with detailed answers to the following claims:

Gastrointestinal disturbances (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, constipation, GERD)
Inflammation risk
Thinning hair/hair loss
Kidney stones
Muscle cramps or weakness
Hypoglycemia
Low platelet count
Impaired concentration/cognition
Impaired mood

22: Keto Repels Mosquitos, How Nuts Impact Ketones, Loss Of Metabolic Flexibility


Thu, Jun 02, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time.

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam drop more keto knowledge with you in Episode 22!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 22:

- Why did I feel drained, exhausted, and weak when I started eating ketogenic?

I got in ketosis and stayed there for a solid month testing with the Ketonix breath analyzer, blowing consistently yellow and red, with an occasional green. I felt drained, exhausted, and weak for a whole month.  I used the KETO//OS product and ate good fats and moderate protein.  I used sea salt often hoping that would help. What was I doing wrong?  In order to get through my busy days and start feeling good again, I upped the carbs knocking me out of ketosis.  I'm still low carb, but not ketogenic.  I have energy again.

1. Does being in ketosis repel mosquitos?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

So, I sort of recall hearing somewhere someone said that mosquitos like "sweet" people.  That is, people with lots of sugar in their blood.

Would that mean that they wouldn't like people in ketosis? 

Is there any research out there on the topic?

Thanks!

Jocelyn

2. Will consuming nuts negatively impact your keto-adaptation?

?

3. Does staying ketogenic make you more intolerant to starchy/sugary foods?

Hello...help please! I eat around 40 carbs total and from veggies each day, and have had improved health and stable weight and mood for two years doing so; my Paleo trainer (intelligent, thoughtful guy) advises me to eat tubers some each week so that I will be "metabolically flexible"- so my body is accustomed to burn both glucose and fat easily; he says I'm losing my ability to burn sugar easily by being consistently low carb.  He says just as my body had to learn to be fat adapted....now it is not "sugar adapted", and this is making me even more intolerable to starchy/sugary foods...equating to less overall health. Have you heard of this "flexibility factor"?  Can you and Doc Nally address this in a podcast soon.

Love your podcasts….thank you much!!

Cyndi

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

Hi Jimmy,

Does Dr. Nally have any experience with normal weight patients who are perimenopausal or menopausal age who adopted a ketogenic diet to alleviate the hormone rollercoaster and to head off the potential weight gain that often happens during that time of life?  I wonder how a diet that is great for fertility in women of childbearing age could also be good for older women in which increased fertility and higher estrogen levels increase their cancer risk.  Any thoughts would be most appreciated.  Keep up the great work!!! 

Best regards,
Annie

21: Starting Keto Again, Should I Quit Keto After Hitting Weight Loss Goal, Sleepy Eating Ketogenic


Thu, May 19, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam are back in action again in Episode 21!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 21:

- How can I get back started on keto again?

I need suggestions and tips on getting back into ketosis after a period of time of not doing it. I was actually keto (no dairy) for over two years and then a practitioner strongly recommended I give raw dairy a try. I did it for a few months and then realized I'd completely lost it. All the cravings, pain, sleep issues and weight (back up to 180lbs) came back and I couldn't get off the dairy (then other junk started creeping in and I might as well be back on the Standard American Diet)!

I had no cares in the world on keto. No cravings, no issues, just just feeling amazing all the time. Initially, I was about 210 pounds and went down to 145 in seven months, through the dietary changes alone. I regret not listening to my body and accepting that no dairy means no dairy and I realize it was my choice to run the experiment, but it was a huge fail and I have been on the off again on again keto rollercoaster for over a year.

So, to finish the question, are there any "tricks" that I can employ to get back to it, at least for long enough to reestablish the habit? Just jumping back in seems to be the best and worst advice I'm giving myself....

Help!
Nicole

1. Do I need to quit keto once I hit my weight loss goal?

Question for you regarding Weight loss and Keto.  I am just starting on this keto way of living and eating.  I have lost 50 pounds in about 4.5 months.  Since I was at my heaviest weight though, I have lost around 80 pounds and I don't remember when I felt this good!  I need to lose more weight, a lot more weight, and I am wondering will my body just know when my weight is "right" and stop losing. According to my height, "the maximum weight I should be for a normal BMI" is 150 pounds, but I think that is going to be awfully thin for my frame.  Do I need to worry about losing too much weight, or will my body take control and stop losing weight when I reach my "ideal" weight?

Thank you for all your insight!  Love you guys and can't wait to listen the podcasts!  I'm sure I will have MANY questions in the future!

2. Is flax and flaxseed oil okay on a ketogenic diet?

I LOVE the Keto Talk show. I listened to that yesterday on my lunch hour. May I submit a question? I am curious about your thoughts on flaxseeds and flaxseed oil. Are they okay for a ketogenic diet? I know the primary fat is polyunsaturated, and we are supposed to stay away from poly...but, I am not sure if that only applies to vegetable oils (canola, cheap cooking oils, etc.), and flaxseeds are supposed to have a variety of health benefits. Thanks!

Thanks again for all you do! You are making a difference in SO MANY lives!!!!!

Blessings,
Tracy

3. What to do when you are sleepy on a low-carb ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I have been on a keto/very low-carb diet for about 4 weeks now and every day when I eat my lunch, I am still getting sleepy.  It's fairly annoying!  It could be my job, but I am just wondering if there could be a reason.  My lunches usually consist of 5-7 oz of some kind of meat, 1TBSP of butter, along with several cups of vegetables that don't add up to more than 8 carbs.

I just did realize today that the coffee substitute that I've been drinking actually has about 2 g of carbs per teaspoon and I haven't really been counting the teaspoons, so I guess I am wondering if I am maybe in that "zone of misery" where my carbs might actually be higher than I thought or is it just that some people take a good long time to become fat adapted?  I do know that Dr. Nally said it could take 4-6 weeks to become fat adapted, so maybe that is it?

Thanks and I love this podcast!!

Susan

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

I have a quick question: I know that some people lose fat on a low fat diet. When they lose fat are they in a state of ketosis? 

Just to clarify, I know that people on a low fat diet also lose water and muscle. I'm not talking about that. But some do lose fat. One person that comes to mind is Susan Powder of Stop the Insanity. She lost a lot of fat. When she did was she in a state of ketosis? Thanks.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 19:
- An update from Adam on the recent Obesity Medicine conference
- Why are so many keto foods considered inflammatory?

Hi Jimmy Moore and The Doc! I love your podcast!

I just got a list of inflammatory foods to avoid from my acupuncturist and I was wondering why a lot of keto foods were on there. Specifically beef, dairy, avocado and nuts. I've been on keto for 3 months, I eat all of those foods almost every day. Also found it strange that rice was on the "okay" list.

Isn't the ketogenic lifestyle supposed to be anti-inflammatory?

Thank you!!

2. How can you build serious muscle mass only eating moderate protein in order to be in ketosis?
?

3. Will eating ketogenic help an underweight person gain weight?

Just curious--can keto help an underweight person gain weight?  Even though my friend is underweight, he has high cholesterol, so I think he should avoid carbs but add lots of fat. He just needs to eat more, right?

Kristin

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

Greetings!  I'm a 63 year young woman two months into LCHF and am slowing down on the weight loss at near 20lbs.  I've naturally fallen into a 16hr daily fast (sometimes a few hours longer) and am amazed at disappearance of an appetite!  I've been faithful to the diet as laid out by Dr. Eenfeldt's Diet Doctor.

I'm enjoying the podcast series with Doc Muscles.

There are many of us who entered adulthood when the grains were modified, healthy oils were switched out and the diet-heart nonsense and food pyramid were foisted upon us ~ and we bought it all.  Needless to say, we have much to undo, however age throws a curve ball but hopefully, it's never too late to live healthy.

Perhaps the Doc could address challenges faced by older men and women getting into Keto lifestyles (such as a slower result curve & why) and perhaps some strategies to keep the results on track.

I posit this is not a minority of your audience. We are the Baby Boomers after all and many are alert to the fact that our generation's overall health is in jeopardy.

Thanks for considering older Ketonians!

Sincerely,
Karen

There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time.

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam answer a plethora of listener-inspired questions today in Episode 18!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 18:
- Is keto good for treating polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

Hi Jimmy!

I absolutely LOVE The Livin La Vida Low Carb Show (and Keto Talk, and Low Carb Conversations!!!). I work as a nurse in Sweden and I'm super interested in endocrinology and how the effect food can have on the body. My sister has PCOS (the advice she gets from her doctor is a big joke and no one has ever heard about keto and if they have they say that it's bad of course...!). I'd love to ask Dr Nally what he thinks is the best way to treat this condition. My sister is super thin although she eats A LOT! Is birth control pills really the only way to keep the cysts away or can a keto diet make her condition better?

THANK YOU for having the best podcasts! I've learned so much from listening to you!!!

- High dietary carbohydrate load could have detrimental effect on heart function

1. Does a ketogenic diet work well for explosive athletes as it does for endurance athletes?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Muscles!
I am a 28 year old female, in good health, and have gone through almost 2 years of my own health and fitness journey. I started a sport called Crossfit (I'm sure you've heard of it) almost 2 years ago.  Because my coaches are SO great, I haven't encountered any negative experiences with the sport that you often hear of. Instead, I have seen massive health benefits for my mind and body. Besides going from 28%to 22% body fat (I'm 5'3'' and 141 lbs), I've experienced greater stamina, mental clarity, sleep, and better performance at work as a traveling musician on the road. I've even competed as an amateur in 3 competitions.

I experimented with paleo-style eating, and even high carb low-fat (aaahh!), high protein, etc while being a Crossfitter, but recently I was on a tour overseas,  and living on a tour bus makes it hard to do my typical explosive, heavy-weight, anaerobic exercise. So I tried keto. About 3 weeks in I am seeing a 2.5 reading on my ketone blood meter daily, and I am feeling really good.

Here's comes the question, I promise.

I haven't yet had enough time back home doing Crossfit and Olympic lifting to see if ketosis is improving, worsening, or making my athletic performance the same. I know ketosis works great for endurance athletes. It even works well for bodybuilders doing hypertrophy-type training. But I am not doing either of those types of training. Instead, I do Olympic style lifts (requires explosive movement) and other VERY intense explosive movements like jumping up high surfaces, gymnastic movements, & all out sprinting.

Does a ketogenic diet work well for explosive athletes the same as it works for endurance athletes and bodybuilders?

Thanks!
Aubrey

2. Can I take a pain reliever like Aleve or Advil while eating keto?

I'm in ketosis. I normally don't take anti-inflammatory meds, but I tweaked my back and was wondering if IB or other NSAID's would bump me out of ketosis?

Thanks for all your work,
Tom

AND

I am doing good on my low carb way of living and am now keto adapted. My question is this. I have been diagnosed with tennis elbow and have been prescribed Naproxen for the pain and inflammation. Is it ok to take or will it kick me out of being keto adapted. I would rather wait for it to heal slowly if that is what would happen. I don’t want anything to ruin the way I feel and the lost in weight that I am experiencing while eating this way. I eat 5% carbs – 15% protein – 80% fat. I feel so alive and energized eating like this. Could you tell me whether it is good to take the Naproxen or whether I should just wait it out.

Thanks in advance and all the best to you and your family.

3. What is the role of keto in recovery from toxic mold exposure?

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

Hi Jimmy,

I have been doing the ketogenic diet, but concerned that I am getting way too many calories. I remember Dr. Thomas Seyfried saying in a podcast that the ketogenic diet is only effective if done in the context of calorie restriction. Otherwise, could result in too much inflammation. Is there something to this?

I've always heard that one should not count calories. My problem however is that, while I can go for long periods of time without eating, when I do eat lunch and dinner, I seem to be a bottomless pit. I add 2 tablespoons of fat to each meal. If I add in more fat in order to reduce my hunger, I'm concerned I will get way too many calories. Last night for example, I hate over 2000 cal before I was satiated, and even then I barely was...

I am 5'3, weigh about 118 pounds and am moderately active. How do I figure out what is the optimal caloric intake for a ketogenic diet?

Much appreciate your help.

Thanks so much!
Robin

17: Too Much Fat, Higher vs. Lower Ketones, Cortisol, & Testosterone On Keto


Thu, Apr 07, 2016


If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam answer more engaging questions about nutritional ketosis from you the listeners today in Episode 17!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 17:
- Can you eat too much fat on a ketogenic diet?
Hello Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

Thank you so much for the great podcast you have put together. I love the focus on the keto way of life. I listen to all of your other podcasts, Jimmy, and this one is my favorite.

So here is my question... I have heard it hypothesized that you can overeat fat on a keto diet. The theory I have heard is before you can burn your fat stores, you have to burn through the dietary fat you have eaten. Is this for real? I'm trying to understand more about exercise and its effects on ketones. When I go for a good long walk, if my ketones go down, is it because they are being utilized more? I'd like to think that I'm really working on burning the stored fat when I go for a walk versus just the dietary fat I have eaten that day but I'm not sure that is the case.

I also conducted my own N=1 experiment on my blood glucose. I used to come home from work and go for a walk, then come back and have my dinner. I would start out before dinner with a blood glucose of 96-104 then do the post-prandial after and it would go up to about 110-114 before coming down again. Then I decided to eat dinner as soon as I got home and go for a walk immediately after. My blood glucose before dinner was 101. Then I went for a 45 minute walk immediately after dinner and tested again at the one hour mark and it was at 96! Do either one of you have any thoughts about the timing of exercise when it relates to eating and its effects on glucose and ketones?

Thank you so much for the great work both of you do!

- Do higher ketone levels mean more fat burning than lower ketone levels?

- Does eating ketogenic spike cortisol levels?
I've noticed that when I do a strict ketogenic diet and extended fasting, my cortisol shoots through the roof. I have interrupted sleep, wake up at 4:30 or 5:00 am and can't go back to sleep (which was great at first to get things done! But now is just annoying). I'm wired but jittery, irritable and edgy. I want the benefits of the higher ketones, but without the negatives of high cortisol.  Most of what I've read suggests to increase carbs to bring cortisol down. What can I do?
Thanks!
Amberley

- Will eating low-carb keto reduce my testosterone levels?
Hey Jimmy,

I want to say that you have made a huge difference in my life. I switched to keto after listening to your podcasts and reading your book. I have dropped 30 pounds in the first month, and have never felt better. Thanks for all the great info you put out there for us. I do have a question though, I have heard that carbs are necessary for testosterone production. I'm 32 this year and want to make sure that a keto diet won't have any deleterious effects on it. Do you have any thoughts on this?

Thanks for your time,
Justin

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you so much for all the hard-to-find information you're putting out there for the rest of us.  You're a great resource!  I love all of your podcasts, especially Keto Talk with Jimmy Moore and the Doc.

I am hoping that you will have time and ability to help me get a question answered.  I have been searching all over the net to find some information about whether a LCHF diet should affect liver function tests, and I can't really find what I'm looking for.  I figured that since you seem to be the king of keto blood test results, you would be just the man to answer my question:

I have been eating LCHF for about a year and a half (and thanks to Dr. Nally's protein calculator, I'm recently down to 50g protein and under 20 carbs - usually way under - leaving about 85-90% fat).  I am not over-weight, but when I started LCHF had been at the top of the normal range for myself and just heavier than I was comfortable with.  I have recently been having some digestive issues, so had some blood tests including a liver panel.  One of the liver measures (ALT, I think, but it could have been AST - the enzymes) came back slightly elevated, so my doc has ordered an upper abdominal ultrasound.  I am scared to death that my doc is going to say that I need to change my diet, but I really want to stay keto (even though I really haven't seen the same level of benefits my husband has, I still think it's so good for me).  So here's the question:

I know that some blood tests look different for those on LCHF (such as cholesterol) and that it's not necessarily a bad thing. Is there any reason to think that elevated liver enzymes is normal for someone on LCHF and not a bad thing?  Or might LCHF cause elevated liver enzymes and actually indicated faulty liver function?  Or are these things completely unrelated. 

Thanks for your help!  I have so many keto questions (for someone who is not overweight - which I think is different than the typical situation), but I decided to pick the most pressing one, so I will continue to listen to your podcasts and continue to learn and hopefully get my other questions answered!

Keep up the great work.

Joanne

14: Keto Talk Mailbox Blitz, Eating Post-Workout, Keto Rash, & More


Thu, Mar 17, 2016


This low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic-focused podcast has been so popular since we first started releasing episodes in January. In fact, so many of you wonderful Ketonian listeners have sent us your questions about nutritional ketosis by emailing Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net that we've set aside time today to catch up on a bunch of them all in one extended episode. Keto Talk features 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" sharing their wealth of experience on keto each and every Thursday. If you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, you can do that and leave a review HERE). Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam make headway on their long list of e-mail questions in Episode 14!

Here’s are the 12 questions Jimmy and Adam answered in this special Keto Talk Mailbox Blitz extended podcast in Episode 14:

1. Ever since learning of my gluten intolerance in 2010, I have been on a quest to improve my diet and health. I went from replacing my gluten filled diet to that of gluten free replacements. When I found out how bad that was after discovering your podcast, I cut out gluten free carbage and have strived to eat low carb high fat. My next step now is the keto diet as there are a few other health issues I'm having that I'm hoping will clear (GERD and kidney stones).

My question is with regard to conventional meats. I am finding it difficult to buy solely grass fed, free range, organic meats on my budget. I am able to buy some but cannot afford a complete grass fed,organic meats diet for my family of four. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places but everywhere I look, including direct from farms, the price is really high (here in Canada anyway). Chickens range from approx $27/chicken and ground beef is approx $9/lb. I can find cheaper organic chickens at Costco ($15/chicken) but am not sure of the quality. I assume they are fed organic grains which I believe is not as healthful?

So I guess my question is, how bad are conventional meats and bones to make bone broth? Am I doing more harm than good?

Elena

2. Will you address ketogenic diets and their effect on chronic pain?  How long should it take to feel some relief?  

Sylvette

3. I have tried ketogenic diets a couple of times and find them great for losing weight. However, as I get further into ketosis (with blood testing at about 0.7mmol/l) I get a cough and a furry tongue.

Paul Jaminet, and, as a result, others like Chris Kresser have been saying that ketones promote the growth of yeasts and fungi like Candida Albicans. I would like to benefit from the weight loss of ketogenic diets, but I don't feel as good as it seems I should. Do you have any thoughts on this? Is it related to fungus, or could it be something else? Am I just doomed never to enjoy the cognitive benefits and energy levels associated with ketogenic diets?

Andrew

4. On Episode 8 of Keto Talk you discussed LDL particle size and the Friedewald equation. Can you discuss your opinion of the following 3 blood tests which claim to establish LDL particle sizes via direct measurement utilizing different methods?

LabCorp NMR Lipoprofile - Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
Quest Cardio IQ - Lipoprotein Subclasses by Ion Mobility
Atherotech VAP (Vertical Auto Profile) - ultracentrifugation

Pat

5. Does avoiding eating protein (or any food for that matter) immediately after a workout inhibit muscle growth and repair? I’m rarely hungry after a workout but I’m afraid I will not be able to increase my levels of fitness and strength unless I eat right after I finish my daily exercise. Are there any studies that prove your muscles will still grow and repair normally while on a ketogenic diet? And just how important is eating food post-workout?

Matthew

6. Jimmy and Adam,

I'm a religious listener and love having you all playing in my car everyday. I tell people that being a podcast junkie is what helps me stay on track.

I started the Ideal Protein protocol through a cousin that's a chiropractor back in September. I started weighing 250 and am currently 196. I quickly learned that the low-carb/keto world was so much larger than the IP protocol and so I quickly started adapting the plan and continued to have great results.

So, here's my question. Now that I'm at a much healthier weight and all-around body composition, it's tempting to cheat every now and again. I suppose is another whole slew of psychological things to address. Anyway, I've noticed that whenever I decide to just take one bite of that cookie, it quickly turns into half the cookie, the whole cookie, multiple bowls of cereal, popcorn, and on and on. I binge for a night then get back on track and can go several days eating Keto. Any thoughts as to what's going on and why the binge urge is so strong once I take that first cheat bite?

Daniel

7. I have been following keto on and off since last April with great results.  However, there is one thing that I cannot understand and wonder if you could clarify this for me. On many complex carb foods, such as brown rice, quinoa, oats for example, although the carb content is high, there is little to no sugar.  I wanted to know whether these foods are actually ok to eat on the low-carb diet.  From reading Volek and Phinney books and others, I thought I had understood that it was the sugar in the carbs that is a killer, not the carbs themselves. Is this correct?  Does the body still burn glucose instead of fat if you only eat the carbs with no sugar content in them? I really hope you can clear this up for me.

Rebecca

8. Hi guys. I'm just getting started reading Keto Clarity and am wrapping up my first week of low-carb. How far do I set myself back by going out one night for a few beers with no snacks? Am I starting all over again on my path to nutritional ketosis or will I be back in ketosis in a day or two?

Steve

9. Hey Jimmy,

I have a question for you and the Doc. What’s up with this Keto Rash? My girlfriend experiences a very distinctive rash around her bra line from her neck to her chest. It disappears completely when she exits ketosis. Why does this happen? What solutions, other than re-incorporating carbs, are available?

Justin

10. Hi guys great show and excellent keto resource. My question is after 18 hour fast my ketone levels drop considerably. My morning levels are around 1.2-2.0 mmol before work then after my shift where I've been standing all day I find my levels often drop as low as 0.5-0.6 mmol. I was under the impression that they should have risen after an intermittent fast. Is this fat burning as my body is using ketones for energy or is something else at play?

Gary from the UK

11. Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I recently read Keto Clarity and have been spending my commutes listening back through all the previous podcasts, really interesting stuff. "Keto" is not big here in the UK so it's brilliant to have such a good resource of information. Love your work!

In Episode 12, you discussed that walnut study that claimed saturated fats aren't a good choice when consumed alongside carbs. Is this because the body would use the carbs and the fat would be stored or are there other physiological reasons why you shouldn't consume saturated fats on a higher carb diet?

Egg from the UK

12. Hello Jimmy and the Doc,       

I have been on a Keto Paleo diet for the past year and low-carb Paleo for over 4 years. I watch my blood glucose levels very closely and exercise daily. Why do my blood glucose levels look great in the upper 70s/low 80s when I walk or jog a couple miles, but on days when I include sprints my blood glucose shoots up to 115. Should I cut out the twice a week sprint sessions all together if they are causing harm to my blood sugar levels like this?

13: Low Carb Vail Highlights, Protein, Atkins Products, & Nitrates


Thu, Mar 10, 2016


 

A couple of weeks back, our cohosts had the distinct privilege of attending and participating in the Low Carb Vail conference in Vail, Colorado where the world's leaders in the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic community got together for an historic North American event about this amazingly healthy way of eating we discuss each week on this show. In case you're new to Keto Talk, we have two spectacular keto advocates behind the microphone--10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles." Together they bring you one of the hottest new nutritional health podcasts on iTunes (leave a review of the show HERE). We examine the latest research into ketogenic diets and answer YOUR most pressing questions about this dietary approach. If you want to send us a question to answer, simply e-mail Jimmy and we may read and answer yours on the air in a future podcast. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam give their thoughts about what went down at the Low Carb Vail event for you in Episode 13!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 13:
- Adam showed up at the recent Low Carb Vail conference
- The gut health talk by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee
- The wishy washy discussion about the role of protein
- The LDL particle number vs. particle size controversy
- The disappointing response by Atkins on lack of fat in products
- Awesome new reviews of the podcast on iTunes

Plus, don't miss our listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

I want to request that Keto Talk discuss the subject of nitrates. When anyone hears we get to eat unlimited bacon that is one of the first concerns we have and also must rationalize to others. I of course began researching but have a hard time finding definitive research amongst the Internet clutter. I discover that many veggies have huge amounts. Even organic ones. I read that this is due to "injection" or storage "environment" used to keep them fresh. Now I'm really confused, let alone able to defend eating bacon or veggies. Is it simply that we must be careful not to burn meat while cooking or is it something else? Rick

12: Healthy Fats, Gut Microbiome, & Sleep On Keto


Thu, Mar 03, 2016


 

After a one-week hiatus while our hosts were attending the Low Carb Vail conference in Vail, Colorado last weekend, they back with a vengeance to provide you with another fun-filled and informative episode of one of the hottest new nutritional health podcasts called Keto Talk with Jimmy Moore & The Doc (listen and leave a review for the show on iTunes HERE). We have 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" here for you week after week to share from their experiences both personally and working with others to implement a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic approach to health and healing. We have so thoroughly enjoyed hearing from YOU the listeners about how you like the show and we urge you to keep the feedback coming through reviews on iTunes as well as questions you'd like for us to answer on air (e-mail Jimmy and we may read and answer yours on the air in a future podcast). Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam provide another fabulous ketolicious show for you in Episode 12!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 12:
- A supposedly "healthy fats" study that disappoints
- What impact does a very low-carb, ketogenic diet have on the gut microbiome?
- How does being in ketosis affect your sleep quantity and quality?

Plus, don't miss our listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

I just finished reading Keto Clarity and I have two words for you...THANK YOU! I'm on day seven of my new ketogenic lifestyle and I feel like a million bucks! I have great energy, mental clarity, and a great general sense of well being.  I'm writing because I have a question for you and the Doc. I’m having a non-surgical fat reduction procedure called Cool Sculpting done where an nurse applies large applicators to localized areas of the body and freezes the fat cells for about an hour so they will die, become metabolized, and then eliminated from the body.  Do you know of any negative ramifications of this procedure while in ketosis? What impact will it have on my ketone levels? Have you ever been asked this question?  My guess is no, as this is a fairly new procedure.  Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Sarah

- CSIRO study: Improved diabetes control with new diet
- What are the perfect macronutrient ratios for obtaining the best ketone levels?
- How do you get back into ketosis after a long hiatus?

Plus, don't miss our listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:
I am like you and Doc Nally—very, very insulin resistant. I have hit a plateau now for 10 months after losing 75 pounds. Now I cannot figure out how to restart my weight loss again. I intermittent fast everyday going as long as 48 hours and love it. I eat one meal a day.

But getting into and staying in ketosis is extremely hard to maintain for me. What can I do? I keep losing five pounds and gain them back and lose them again. The same five pounds up and down with no breakthrough. It is disheartening to be stuck. I started to think I was eating too much and last August I cut what I ate by half. But I am still stuck.

All I have been is very hungry with no weight loss at all. Can you help me figure this out? Thanks for your assistance. Gladys

10: Autoimmune Disease, Constipation, And Supplements On Keto


Thu, Feb 11, 2016


It's another great day of podcasting for you today at one of the hottest new nutritional health podcasts called Keto Talk with Jimmy Moore & The Doc (listen and leave a review for the show on iTunes HERE). Our cohosts are 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" sharing their knowledge all about low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diets. We've been overwhelmed with the incredible support we've received from our listeners since debuting in January and we look forward to continuing to answer the most pressing questions about ketosis. In case you've missed any of first nine episodes so far, be sure to listen to Episode 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, 7, 8, and 9. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam bring more ketogenic diet information for you today in Episode 10!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 10:
- The autoimmune disease woes of the late Glenn Frey
- What is the deal with constipation on a ketogenic diet?
- Are there any supplements that people should take on keto?

Plus, don't miss our question from the Keto Talk Mailbox:
First of all, I love your new question and answer podcast. I feel I am fairly discerning of what podcasts I listen to, and you guys do a great job.

I have started testing foods for my ketogenic lifestyle. I check my blood sugar before eating the food in question, one hour after and two hours after. How high of a number would be too high to say that that food should be avoided?  My morning ketones are usually around 1.1. My fasting glucose upon awakening is usually 85 to 89. I just started Keto 3 weeks ago. 

If it is a food that I really want to eat, could I mute the elevated glucose by having 20 or 30 g of fat along with it?

Thanks,
Dan

When veteran health podcaster, blogger, and author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" met up with his bariatric physician, family doctor, and osteopath friend Dr. Adam Nally from DocMuscles.com in Arizona back in October, they discussed the idea of doing a podcast together addressing questions all about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet. As a means for testing the waters of this concept, they conducted a Periscope video answering questions from Jimmy's followers. That's the audio you'll hear in this special Episode 0 debut episode today and brand new 20-minute episodes will begin airing on Thursday, January 7, 2016.
