Celebs Over 40 Are Obsessed With The Keto Diet. Here’s Everything You Need To Know Before Trying It.

There was once a time when low-fat cookies, chips, and peanut butter were considered “healthy choices.” Oh, how times have changed! Ever since studies began surfacing showing that low-carb, high-fat diets can be more effective for weight loss than low-fat plans, more and more health-conscious folks have fully embraced fat. Sales of whole-fat milk and yogurt have soared in recent years, and most nutritionists now tell their clients to incorporate fatty foods like fish, avocado, and olive oil into their diets. The reemergence of all this creamy goodness has led to a century-old diet making a major comeback: the ketogenic diet. Celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Mick Jagger are both rumored to have taken the plan for a test drive. (Got 10 minutes?

Those following the keto diet plan eat a lot of fat and just a few carbohydrates. More specifically, 80% of the diet is comprised of fat, 15% is protein, and a mere 5% of calories come from carbohydrates. For someone on a 1,500-calorie diet, that translates to 19 grams of carb Continue reading >>

    High Blood Pressure despite 3.5 weeks on keto?

    Been doing keto steady for the past 3.5 weeks. Been on and off keto since chimponarope and Eileen hung around here and the C-K-D website still existed.
    Got a HR monitor yesterday and was surprised by my heart rate. About 100 BPM when standing. Oddly enough, when sitting, HR dropped to high 50's, low 60's. RHR upon awaking is ~70 BPM. Due to the oddity of HR variance, took a blood pressure reading:
    137/80 - Prehypertension range
    It was my understanding keto lowers blood pressure. Any solutions as to why my BH is so high?
    Workouts include bodyweight conditioning (Convict Conditioning by Paul Wade) and kettlebells (Enter the Kettlebell by Pavel Tsatsouline).
    Averages of weekly fat consumption:
    366 g saturated fat
    61 g polyunsaturated fat
    199 g monounsaturated fat
    Average of 8058 mg of cholesterol/week
    At first I didn't add sodium to my food, but when I started getting an unquenchable thirst (despite drinking a gallon+ of water), I started adding salt.
    I use tobacco products 2x/day(dip).
    Proteins come from hamburger, chicken breast, chicken thighs, eggs and sometimes cheese.
    No supplements besides multivitamin, fish oil, calcium, and glucosamine.
    Can't afford a gym membership, so I certainly can't afford a doctor visit. Any suggestions for steps I can take to reduce blood pressure?
    Thanks all!

    What kind of shape are you in physically, and mentally? Do you workout?
    Tobacco is a vasoconstrictor, did you have a dip in close proximity to the test?
    I'd continue to check throughout the day and for a few weeks to make sure you got a good reading. If you are an anxious person, you can raise your bloodpressure unconsciously while you test. This happens to me occasionally at the GP even though I'm fit as a violin.
    Lastly, try the meter on other people to see if it's accurate. I had an old one that was very inaccurate.

    I'm in OK physical shape, I think. After a 12 minute set of KB swings, my HR is ~160 to 170 BPM. In 60 seconds after taking a pulse myHR will drop by 33 beats. Mentally, I'm good.
    I took my BP this morning, after having 16 oz of water and before drinking coffee. Needless to say, it was too early to have a dip.
    Tried the meter on someone else, and they had a good read.
