Starvation Acidosis

acidosis [as″ĭ-do´sis] 1. the accumulation of acid and hydrogen ions or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate content) in the blood and body tissues, resulting in a decrease in pH. 2. a pathologic condition resulting from this process, characterized by increase in hydrogen ion concentration (decrease in pH). The optimal acid-base balance is maintained by chemical buffers, biologic activities of the cells, and effective functioning of the lungs and kidneys. The opposite of acidosis is alkalosis. adj., adj acidot´ic. Acidosis usually occurs secondary to some underlying disease process; the two major types, distinguished according to cause, are metabolic acidosis and respiratory acidosis (see accompanying table). In mild cases the symptoms may be overlooked; in severe cases symptoms are more obvious and may include muscle twitching, involuntary movement, cardiac arrhythmias, disorientation, and coma. In general, treatment consists of intravenous or oral administration of sodium bicarbonate or sodium lactate solutions and correction of the underlying cause of the imbalance. Many cases of severe acidosis can be prevented by careful monitoring of patients whose primary illn Continue reading >>

    Here's my previous thread where I was frustrated with not losing weight on strict keto for 3 months. https://www.reddit.com/r/keto/comments/2xxn05/im_sick_of_not_losing_weight_on_keto/
    I haven't changed my workout routine or caloric intake. All I did was change the amount of daily protein intake. I was eating an average of 100-150g of protein per day. Weight has been falling off after I dropped protein to 70g per day and increased my fat in order to remain at the same caloric intake. I've dropped 5 pounds ever since. Just thought I would share that with anyone that may be dealing with the same challenges that I was. I'll keep you guys updated. I look forward to doing a before and after. Also my workouts and strength is still the same. I'm still increasing 5lbs on every workout session on 5x5 with no problem. Someone at the gym even asked me if I was pro which was nice!

    I was listening to a youtube interview of Stephanie Keto Person by Primal Edge Health last night and they were mentioning that in some (many?) people gluconeogenesis is a very real phenomenon when protein is in excess. This would definitely be a data point in favour of that hypothesis. It would also explain why my losses are WAY better on days when I fast (since I'm only eating meat on a single meal then instead of for every meal).

    You can eat too much protein and not enough fat to be in ketosis, but if calories are held the same it wouldn't affect the rate of weight loss. OP is seeing a "woosh" or some form of water weight fluctuations have masked fat loss and he/she is falsely attributing it to changing macro ratios. Keto is not immune to calories in - calories out.
    Edit: Wait - you guys really think keto doesn't require a caloric deficit? There is literally zero science to support that.

  • Is Ketosis Starvation

    A lot of people are confused by the term “ketosis.” You may read that it is a “dangerous state” for the body, and it does sound abnormal to be “in ketosis.” But ketosis merely means that our bodies are using fat for energy. Ketones (also called ketone bodies) are molecules generated during fat metabolism, whether from the fat in the almonds you just ate or fat you were carrying around your middle. When our bodies are breaking down fat ...
