Maybe It’s Time To Check Your Ketone Level?

Achieving ketosis is not required for most people to succeed on the Wheat Belly lifestyle. However, this can be an important issue to know about.

Some individuals find their weight loss efforts seem to plateau after some time on this diet.

    Peter Attia on people who don't do well on a Ketogenic Diet

    I know there's a few people around here who don't do well on a ketogenic diet. I know for myself, who does extremely well with this way of eating, it's sometimes hard to understand why it doesn't work for everyone. And I think sometimes the people who it doesn't work well for get exasperated with all the talk of LCHF and ketogenic diets. Well, Peter Attia, who I have a lot of respect for, talks some in this podcast about how there are some people who just don't do well on a ketogenic diet. I don't know if it would be of any interest for those of you who have this problem or not:

    He doesn't go into a lot of detail about it, but it's more that it's just interesting that there is a minority of people who do have this problem.

    Its amazing how all things do not work well for everyone. Ah the saying none of us is exactly alike. I did real well on a low carb diet when I was 25 only wanted to lose about 15 lbs then, was not diabetic had energy coming out my ears. Tried it 20 yrs later and did not change my numbers that much, yes better but not to normal. I hear from some weight falls right off them and numbers turn to normal, nice if you can get it maybe pancreas function should be measured who knows why or what causes this.

    Just to be clear, this wasn't in relation to diabetes, but people in general who want to go on a ketogenic diet but apparently have problems with eating all that fat.
