Aldehydes And Ketones Reactions

6 Reactions of aldehydes and ketones with water to produce hydrates Experimentt: Al dehyde and Ketone Reactions Aldehydes and ketones are an important class of compounds in organic chemistry. The importance of molecular structure in the reactivity of organic compounds is illustrated by the reactions that produce aldehydes and ketones. Carbonyl Condensation Reactions As a result of the large dipole of the carbonyl group: Nucleophilic carbonyl: aldehydes, ketones, esters, amides and Chapter 14 Aldehydes and Ketones • This makes low molecular weight aldehydes and ketones ALDEHYDE AND KETONE REACTIONS Oxidation and reduction of aldehydes and ketones • Aldehydes can be oxidized easily to carboxylic acids Reactions of aldehydes and ketones with alcohols This reaction is used as a simple test to distinguish aldehydes from ketones REACTIONS OF ALDEHYDES TASK Write balanced equations for the following reactions.

    Re-entering Carb Diet after CKD

    I've read a few different views on how to reintroduce carbs after being on a ketogenic diet. What I would like to discuss is the ways to do it
    a) after a short (3-6 week) CKD bout, and
    b) after a longer stint (12 weeks+)
    I'm pretty well versed in diet and nutrition, but this has been my first time actually trying a ketogenic diet (CKD) myself and would like to hear feedback from the more experienced keto gurus.
    I found this on John Berardi's site, but I'm assuming that's playing it extra safe after only a few weeks of keto.

    Q: I've been following a ketogenic diet for nearly a year now. I would love to come off the diet because it has killed my sex drive and my progress in the gym has all but halted. I lost a good amount of fat on it for the first couple of months, but then my progress stopped. The problem is that when I try to go off the diet and eat normally again, I blow up. Help!
    A: Buddy, you're not alone. Although the ketogenic diet works very well for some individuals, the majority of weight trainers have the same problems that you mentioned. But they're too afraid to go off the diet because it appears that they'll rapidly gain back a lot of fat and end up where they started. And they're too afraid to get help. Remember the old saying� the first step toward getting help is admitting you have a problem.
    There are several reasons why people blow up and gain a lot of weight when trying to come off ketogenic diets. They include:
    Carbohydrate intolerance: While on a ketogenic diet, the body becomes more efficient at using fat for energy and therefore "forgets" how to process carbohydrates. So for a few weeks after you start eating normally again, you'll be storing those carbs and getting fatter. Sure, a lot of it will go to muscle glycogen, but a much larger amount than expected will go to fat stores. It takes a few weeks for the body to "remember" how to process carbohydrates.
    Insulin Resistance: Ketogenic diets decrease insulin sensitivity. In fact, in people coming off ketogenic diets, the symptoms are similar to those seen in type-2 diabetics! The likelihood of gaining fat due to this insulin resistance is high.
    Stimulants: Most dieters abuse caffeine and ephedrine. Both of these substances decrease insulin sensitivity as well and can induce diabetic like symptoms when reintroducing carbohydrates into the body.
    Water Gain: Ketogenic diets, because of their effects on fluid balance, can induce mild dehydration. Although this makes you look lean and "dry", it negatively impacts performance. Once you start eating normally again, the body hyperhydrates, causing massive water retention. Although sometimes uncomfortable, this typically leads to big gains in strength in the gym. However, all this water retention does make the physique "blurry." So most people mistake this water gain for fat gain. Unless you have body fat measures done regularly, it'll be hard to know whether it's fat or water.
    So now that you know why you blow up, let me tell you how to avoid it:
    The first step is to plan a flexible 6-week transition period in which you'll taper off the ketogenic diet. The most effective way to transition here is to use the insulin and carbohydrate sensitivity measures discussed in part 2 of my Massive Eating Article. Now listen up� this is important. During this time you'll be supplementing with insulin sensitizing supplements. I recommend 600 mg of alpha-lipoic acid per day, lots of fish oils (at least 6g of DHA and EPA), glucosol (colosolic acid) at about 50 mg per day, and inzitol (d-pintol) at about 50 mg per day. Remember to take the ALA, glucosol, and inzitol during separate carbohydrate meals. Don't take them with a carbohydrate free meal or together. In addition, do your cardio. About 30 min 4x per week, separate from weight training, does wonders for increasing insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate tolerance.
    Have an OGTT and a fasted blood insulin and glucose sample taken at the beginning of the transition week (again, see part 2 of the Massive Eating Article).
    During weeks 1 and 2, gradually reintroduce carbohydrates into the diet. Try replacing 10% of your fat with high fiber, low glycemic and insulin index carbohydrates (if your diet is 60% fat, 40% protein change it to 50% fat, 40% protein, 10% carbohydrate). Some good carbohydrate sources are oatmeal, vegetables, nuts, beans, and fruits. This is easier said than done, though, because most often, when reintroducing carbohydrates into the diet, carbohydrate cravings go through the roof! So be prepared and be strong.
    At the start of week 2, have another OGTT and a fasted blood insulin and glucose sample taken. Your insulin sensitivity should be improved due to the supplementation. If not, stay on 10% carbohydrate 'till it is.
    For weeks 3 and 4, decrease your fat intake and increase your carbohydrate intake to about 20% of the diet, again using high fiber, low GI and II carbohydrates (now you will be at 40%fat, 40% protein, 20% carbohydrate). Follow this for 2 weeks while remaining on the recommended supplements.
    Again, at the start of week 4, have another OGTT and a fasted blood insulin and glucose sample taken. Your insulin sensitivity should be improved due to the supplementation. If not, stay on 20% carbohydrate 'till it is.
    For weeks 5 and 6, decrease your fat intake and increase your carbohydrate intake to about 30% of the diet, again using high fiber, low GI and II carbohydrates (now you will be at 30% fat, 40% protein, 30% carbohydrate). Once you get to this point, you should be home free.
    So will this approach prevent all fat gain? No, but it will definitely minimize it. Just keep in mind that you'll probably gain some water and that this is a good thing. But this water does scare most people as they mistake it for fat gain. Just hang in there and the body will normalize over the 6-week period and you'll end up just fine.
    Remember, this program requires a lot of effort and discipline, but it's very effective. Don't waste a year of dieting by indiscriminately changing your eating plan. You'll only get fat and/or frustrated. Or you'll never go off the diet that's making you unhappy.

    Any input appreciated!

    Don't eat flour and sugar and limit starches. Donuts,frosted flakes, and french fries are an invitation to disaster.

    Here is an example of a different approach I am thinking of:
    Weeks 1-2: Carbs only on workout days: ~50g complex carbs pre-workout
    and 50-100g simple carbs post-workout.
    Weeks 2-4: Same as week one but 50-100g carbs/day depending on
    bodyweight and carb intake during keto diet, but around .5g/lb
    of bodyweight) on non-workout days
    Weeks 4-6: Upping carb intake anywhere from 50g carbs a day to 1.5g/lb
    Weeks 6+: Continue above until carb ratio that is most effective for the
    individual is reached.
    This way energy levels and fat/muscle gains could be monitored every 2 weeks to get back to a higher level of carbs (35-60%), while letting the body readjust to using glycogen for fuel.
    Has anyone tried an approach similar to this? I just pulled it off the top of my head so obviously some adjustments could be made...
