Next, I recommend that you join our Long Distance Patient Program so that you can get diet modification and supplement recommendations designed specifically for you by me or one of my fellow practitioners in our Ann Arbor, Michigan office. You have to be a patient of our office in order to receive supplements, per our distribution agreement with the producer of the Standard Process brand supplements. Becoming a Long Distance Patient as outlined below allows you that access. In order to be part of our online patient program, you would purchase an annual membership for $200. This membership includes an initial 30 minute phone appointment with me or one of our practitioners. At that time, the practitioner will make a recommendation to you for diet modifications, supplements and the quantities that you should take. After the phone call, you are able to order supplements for a year, as needed, directly from our website and our app. We will then promptly ship the supplements out to you. Follow up phone calls with your practitioner are $125 for a 20 minute phone/SKYPE appointment.

Effects Of Fasting Ketosis | Allaboutfasting

Understanding ketosis and muscle loss during fasting. The process of ketosis is one of the physiological effects of fasting in which the brain (and some other bodily processes) uses ketones produced from fatty tissues as a fuel instead of the usual glucose. This is called "muscle sparing". When glucose isn't readily available via the diet (in the form of carbohydrates) and the glycogen stores in the liver become depleted, the body could break down muscle to get it. But ketosis is an adaptation that will spare muscle during times of shortage by instead breaking down fat stores and manufacturing ketones for brain fuel. It is said this state is attained at approximately 48 hours of a water fast for women and closer to 72 hours for men. The effects of fasting ketosis became a more popular and controversial subject about 10 years ago due to low-carb, high-protein dieters relying on it long-term to "burn the fat". Recent iterations of these "ketogenic diets" are fine-tuning fat to protein to carb ratios. Where ketosis was once considered a "crisis response" of the body and fine only for short durations, there are some diet doctors who now contend ketones are an acceptable alternative fu Continue reading >>

    I want to lose weight.
    I have signed up to DailyBurn to keep track of my weight with weekly weigh ins.
    I was confused over the different diets available (Atkins and Paleo were top runners up), so have decided to start off with just trying to adopt a low-carb diet and see how it impacts my weight.
    I see friends 2-3 times a week, and we commonly end up hitting some bars.
    (This is fun and I would like to continue this)
    I am not a fan of beer, but do like a whiskey and coke.
    At the weekend, I switched to using Diet Coke/Coke Zero as it has significantly lower carbs/sugars than regular cola.
    However - im sure there must be negative consequences from drinking these diet drinks?
    What impact do diet drinks have on a low carb diet?

  2. Berin Loritsch

    As the link you provided mentioned, diet drinks are able to remain sweet due to the artificial sweeteners. Those same artificial sweeteners are used in many diet oriented food products as well (check out Walden Farms products). That said, there are differences in how bad the different sweeteners are, or how much we know about their long term effects.
    As the answer from Yahoo alluded to, aspartame is one of products we know has bad properties. The more "en vogue" sweeteners like splenda (sucralose) and stevia are "less bad" than aspartame. That doesn't mean they are great either. I recommend looking at the Mayo Clinic article on artificial sweeteners for an overview.
    That said:
    There was a study that said that diet sodas can actually make you fatter--which had to do with psychological factors. This article has an alternative view.
    You mentioned mixing alcohol with your diet soda: Alcohol will affect your diet. It's best to lay off alcohol while losing weight.
    My weight loss center was entirely against diet sodas because they made your body more acidic, and as a result more susceptible to getting sick. I'm not sure if that claim was pseudo science or not, but the Self Nutrition Data site has an inflammatory index which is measuring the same concept. According to the data there, diet coke and diet Pepsi have no impact on the inflammatory index.
    Diet drinks, and most sodas, coffee, and tea contain caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic if consumed in large enough quantities. Combined with the sodium content (see next paragraph) you can be thirstier after you drink the soda than before. Many people drink diet sodas in sufficient quantity for it to become a diuretic.
    The last potentially bad thing from excess diet sodas is Sodium content. Coke zero seems to have fairly low sodium (30mg / 8oz of product) versus diet coke which has (40mg / 8oz of product). That said. most people drink large amounts of this, with serving sizes ranging between 16-48oz of soda. The sodium content at that point becomes a significant amount to worry about. High sodium levels are linked to hypertension (high blood pressure) as well as water retention.
    At the end of the day, Water is still the ultimate diet drink. It helps you process protein better, it won't leave you dehydrated.
    So, someone brought to my attention a study that suggests that artificial sweeteners raise blood sugar more than regular sugar (ref). The proposed mechanism has to do with the artificial sweeteners affecting the microbial gut bacteria. The article was an interesting read, but we can't exclude the last page which talks about the criticisms of the study. The bottom line is summed up nicely in the article:
    “By no means do we believe that, based on the results of this study, we are prepared to make recommendations on the use and dosage of artificial sweeteners,” Segal said.
    Elinav did say, though, that their findings have spurred him to stop using artificial sweeteners in his coffee.
    He doesn’t use sugar, either. “I think we must stress that by no means are we saying sugary drinks are healthy,” Elinav said. (quoted from article)

    There is a lot of misinformation and fear being spread about sodas of all kinds.
    Really, drinking diet soda should not have any effect on a low carb diet for most people.
    There are 0 calories diet soda.
    Diet soda is 99.8% water (Can't link to USDA reference site due to government shutdown)
    The main risks from diet soda are
    Tooth enamel decay
    Bone loss
    Both of these are due to the phosphoric acid. Not drinking an excessive amount, practicing good dental hygiene and getting sufficient amounts of calcium can alleviate these risks.
    There was a study done in Texas, observing people over a period of time that showed that the people who drank soda were more likely to gain weight than the people who did not. These studies were observational only, so they were unable to show cause.
    WebMD has more information: Diet Sodas Cause Weight Gain? Not so Fast
    Probably the thing you will hear most is health risks associated with aspartame. What essentially happened was that a study done on rats was picked up by the media and reported as aspartame causing cancer in people.
    That study was later debunked, and there are no studies linking aspartame as the cause of any harmful health condition, in the amounts served with diet soda. Wikipedia has a good summary on the aspartame controversy.
    In short, it's fine to drink, especially if you live a healthy lifestyle.

Is Ketosis Dangerous?

You may have heard from your doctor that ketosis is a life-threatening condition. If so, your doctor is confusing diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) with nutritional ketosis, or keto-adaptation. First, some semantics. Our body can produce, from fat and some amino acids, three ketone bodies (a “ketone” refers to the chemical structure where oxygen is double-bonded to carbon sandwiched between at least 2 other carbons). These ketone bodies we produce are: acetone, acetoacetone, and beta-hydroxybutyrate (B-OHB). [For anyone who is interested, they are the 3 most right structures on the figure, below.] Why do we make ketones? For starters, it’s a vital evolutionary advantage. Our brain can only function with glucose and ketones. Since we can’t store more than about 24 hours’ worth of glucose, we would all die of hypoglycemia if ever forced to fast for more than a day. Fortunately, our liver can take fat and select amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and turn them into ketones, first and foremost to feed our brains. Hence, our body’s ability to produce ketones is required for basic survival. What is diabetic ketoacidosis? When diabetics (usually Type I diabetics, but some Continue reading >>

    Most animals don't have a mechanism for ketosis. Ketosis is a mechanism to provide energy for the brain. Animal brains do not require as much energy as humans and thus the energy requirements can be fulfilled via gluconeogenesis.

  2. anbeav

    My cat is on a keto diet (raw food carnivore diet) but ketones are always negative. Here's one of many articles I've read it in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2194504/. I've also talked to my vet about this.
    Cats are not humans. Humans have mechanisms for ketosis why are you assuming all animals do and in response to the same stimuli? Anyone can, yes. Not any animal. That's a big difference.
    Ketosis is ketosis. Even on a protein and fat only diet my cat is not in ketosis. His walnut sized brain doesn't demand it. Cats do get ketostix when diabetic but not just from eating a natural cat diet. I don't like it misrepresented either which is why I don't discuss things when drunk :)

  3. anbeav

    If you switched the cats diet it wouldn't go into ketosis though. I'm speaking of nutritional ketosis not ketoacidosis. Other animals don't achieve nutritional ketosis but can achieve ketoacidosis, not the same thing.
    And what do you mean that humans should never be in ketosis for extended periods of time? Why?
    You're mixing terms-ketosis and ketoacidosis

Subscribe for videos on becoming superhuman: https://goo.gl/TSDCuv Lowering your caloric intake and doing intermittent fasting has a ton of health benefits on both your body and your mind. Herman Hesse said in his novel, Siddhartha: Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast. Numerous studies have shown that caloric restriction increases the lifespan and youthfulness of almost all species, starting with fruit flies and ending with rhesus monkeys. In humans, there is no definite anti-aging proof but fastings been shown to improve biomarkers, reduce inflammation, promote stem cell growth, boost the immune system and make you burn a ton of fat. However, the key to successfully gaining these health benefits comes from avoiding malnutrition and starvation. Theres a hugedifference between fasting, starvationand caloric restriction, but it doesn't mean you can't be starving while intermittent fasting or consuming fewer calories.

Diabetic, Alcoholic And Starvation Ketoacidosis

Copious amounts of ketones which are generated in insulin-deficient or insulin-unresponsive patients will give rise to a high anion gap metabolic acidosis. Ketones are anions, and they form the high anion gap. Management of DKA and HONK is discussed elsewhere. Meet the ketones Chemically speaking, a ketone is anything with a carbonyl group between a bunch of other carbon atoms. The above are your three typical ketoacidosis-associated ketone bodies. The biochemistry nerds among us will hasten to add that the beta-hydroxybutyrate is in fact not a ketone but a carboxylic acid, but - because it is associated with ketoacidosis, we will continue to refer to it as a ketone for the remainder of this chapter, in the spirit of convention. In the same spirit, we can suspend our objections to acetone being included in a discussion of ketoacidosis, which (though a true ketone) is in fact not acidic or basic, as it does not ionise at physiological pH (its pKa is 20 or so). So really, the only serious ketone acid is acetoacetate, which has a pKa of 3.77. However, beta-hydroxybutyrate is the prevalent ketone in ketoacidosis; the normal ratio of beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate is 3:1, and it Continue reading >>
