Ketoacidosis Versus Ketosis

Some medical professionals confuse ketoacidosis, an extremely abnormal form of ketosis, with the normal benign ketosis associated with ketogenic diets and fasting states in the body. They will then tell you that ketosis is dangerous. Testing Laboratory Microbiology - Air Quality - Mold Asbestos - Environmental - Lead emsl.com Ketosis is NOT Ketoacidosis The difference between the two conditions is a matter of volume and flow rate*: Benign nutritional ketosis is a controlled, insulin regulated process which results in a mild release of fatty acids and ketone body production in response to either a fast from food, or a reduction in carbohydrate intake. Ketoacidosis is driven by a lack of insulin in the body. Without insulin, blood sugar rises to high levels and stored fat streams from fat cells. This excess amount of fat metabolism results in the production of abnormal quantities of ketones. The combination of high blood sugar and high ketone levels can upset the normal acid/base balance in the blood and become dangerous. In order to reach a state of ketoacidosis, insulin levels must be so low that the regulation of blood sugar and fatty acid flow is impaired. *See this reference pap Continue reading >>

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm glad you experienced cognitive benefits.
    I can't help but wonder what your experience would be like if you extended the experiment beyond 30 days since it can take, according to Nora Gedgaudas, six weeks to be keto-adapted and according to Dr. Stephen Phinney, even a couple of months. For instance, I wonder if that opioid high would return once your body was fully adapted. One of the problems with some studies of ketogenic diets is that they don't last long enough for the subjects to be fully keto-adapted.
    Regarding the gut trouble, did you eat that exact same menu everyday? I'm wondering if there were some foods in there to which you have an intolerance (it's not uncommon to have a sensitivity to eggs or nuts). Daily ingestion of those might have just been too much for your body.

    Yeah, I've read about the longer adaptation period too, and I think I'll have to do a longer experiment in the future.
    It's funny how I have this very mild brain fog when I eat the so called "normal diet", but the brain fog is so mellow that you can only detect it once you have a point of reference which is ketosis in this case.
    Once I was in ketosis I had a epiphany that "hey, I've had a mild brain fog all of my life."
    Yes, I ate pretty much the same every day, but in end, everything I ate gave me a stomach ache and diarrhea, except a probiotic yogurt which immediately helped with my symptoms. But now when I think about it, I should've added more fermented foods on my plate, like cheese.

    Were you ingesting liquid during your feeding time? I've seen some circumstantial evidence from r/zerocarb stating that liquid should be avoided an hour before and 2 after a meal to abate explosive diarrhea.
