Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis (dka): What Is The Difference?

Let’s break it down so that you can understand exactly what ketosis is and how it differs from ketoacidosis. But the states they refer to are nothing alike. In this case, maybe mistakes are understandable. Many people who believe that ketosis is dangerous are mixing it up with another state called "ketoacidosis." The two words do sound very similar. And some people simply make mistakes. Profit motives tend to muddy up the works when it comes to getting clear, factual information about your health. Well, there are a lot of individuals and companies which all have their own goals and motivations. Where do these misperceptions come from? Here’s the thing though … that is all misinformation. You then Googled something like, "low carb dangerous" and found a list of link-bait articles informing you that low-carb is a ketogenic diet, and ketosis is a dangerous metabolic state which can be fatal.

    Ok, so here's a question I have, that I can't find the answer to in the FAQ...
    Once you are fat-adapted, do you intentionally drop your dietary fat intake down and rely on body fat being utilized to make up the difference?
    Are successful Keto diets generally eating a monitored calorie deficit for their fats, or just eating fat to satiety?
    Probably both?
    I understand the first part of the Keto diet for losing fat - get into nutritional ketosis. I just don't understand the second part. I assume that it is possible to overeat fats and put on weight, so do most people still count calories?
    If so, is the major advantage over traditional dieting that it is easier to say no to food Or is it that it that you can maintain energy in a caloric deficit. Edit:Or is it muscle preservation while dieting?
    If this is answered in the FAQ's or elsewhere, thanks in advance for links.
    Cheers

    Not counting calories is often referred to as "lazy keto" around here, you can search that for experiences. It works best for morbidly obese men - the less you have to lose and the smaller you are, the less leeway you have.
    If so, is the major advantage over traditional dieting that it is easier to say no to food Or is it that it that you can maintain energy in a caloric deficit.
    The latter. Eating low-carb is satiating and it is easier to maintain a deficit without blood sugar ups and downs. This is the case whether or not you count calories. However, for people who don't have a lot to lose, are prone to binge eating, or have a history of food abuse, those satiety effects are often not strong enough to negate the need for counting calories.

    Yup, I'm 130 pound and not aiming to lose much more but as I used to have an ED I feel a strong need to count calories still. Not counting can result in bingeing and that scares me. I'm hoping one day to rely completely on just my hunger but I still can't trust it yet.
