Is The Ketogenic Diet Right For You? Nutritionists Weigh In

You may be hearing a lot about the ketogenic diet as a way to slim down while noshing on butter and heavy cream. This way of eating is suddenly hot among venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, who believe it will help them live longer and healthier, CNBC reports. Some praise the high-fat/ultra low-carb plan for helping them to lose weight and have energy all day long. Other advocates say it finally helped them to get control of their body. How does it work and could it help you? We asked Bonnie Taub-Dix, a registered dietitian nutritionist and author of “Read It Before You Eat It”; and Keri Glassman, nutritionist, registered dietitian and TODAY Tastemaker. To start with, both said they would never advise the ketogenic diet for weight loss. “Cutting out carbs is usually an invitation to overeat them at another point,” Taub-Dix said. “For a diet where you’re looking to lose weight, look good and feel good… I would not recommend a diet like this.” “For safe and effective weight loss, the carb reduction is too extreme,” Glassman added.

    I understand ketosis is achieved when staying between 0-50g of carbs, upwards to 100g for some people.
    But I was wondering where sugar fits in to this?
    The reason I'm asking is there's a full fat greek yogurt that I LOVE. But it's got 15g of carbs and 10g of sugar.
    Will eating that likely to kick me out of ketosis?

    thinking about being IN ketosis or not is somewhat misleading. What you want is to be fully keto-adapted, meaning your body will seamlessly move from carb burning, fat burning, maybe protein burning back and forth. The carb flu period is when you are not fully adapted and feel a bit out of sorts when transitioning. For someone fully adapted, having a high carb meal or day should not impair longer-term fat burning and fatloss.

    Sugar and carbs in yogurt is misleading. Carbs in all foods are not determined directly, but presumed to be what is left over after subtracting proteins and fats. Most, but not all, of the milk's lactose is converted to acids (acidolphilus, any one?) which while still carbs are no longer sugars.
    Just stay away from sugar added yogurts and don't eat it too often. It is dairy.

  • How Many Carbs Can You Eat And Still Be In Ketosis?

    Limiting carbs is one of the easiest ways to get into ketosis. It doesn’t require fasting; it doesn’t even require you to eat fewer calories — all you have to do is restrict your carbohydrates and eat just enough protein (and not too much) to stimulate fat burning and ketone production. Other factors like fat consumption, stress, and activity levels are important to consider as well, but knowing how many carbs you need to eat to get into ke ...
