Does Nutritional Ketosis Generate Too Much Acetone?

Nutritional levels of ketones in our blood aren't too acidic, especially after becoming adapted to them in our system. Our body regulates acidity, always seeking balance and the burn-off is cleaner than glucose (less free radicals and oxidation). That said, starvation levels of ketosis long term can get hard on the syste, shutting down hormone production and upsetting metabolism. And if someone is diabetic, these levels may be harder to balance and left unchecked can lead to ketoacidosis. Supplementing with ketones is a good way to become Keto-adapted, come in and out of ketosis and begin to move toward nutritional states through diet. Continue reading >>

    This are good question, far more than what you might think. :)
    1st, remember that eliminating protein from your meals is near impossible. Even bread have protein. We disregard this for a bit just for the sake of question. ;)
    In general, several probable situation might happen.
    If you are consuming enough carbs, your body protein salvaging rate will slow down, but if not, bad news, muscle protein will be salvaged for glucose instead.
    Body protein salvaging takes precedence to body muscle repair, including organ muscle, like heart, so, bad news
    If more than 50 % body protein have been consumed, You shall be no more
    Our immune system also but on proteins, so They will be the first that affected. That means easier to get afflicted to various diseases
    Processing much carbs give heavy burden to Your liver and pancreas, and, without proper reparation, may leads to either deteriorate, metabolic syndrome or diabetes, to cardiovascular disorders or cancers.
    In absense of carbs, body will slow down protein salvaging with fat, which can lead to ketosis, can lead to ketoacidosis, and in long term can be dangerous if not fatal.

    What became smaller is Your muscles, and, depending on your carbs consumption, You may actually get bigger, mainly because accumulation of fat.
    So, no, dont do protein fasting :).

    Consult local nutritionist for protein consumption proper amount based on your daily activity. :)
