Is Too Much Protein On Keto Really A Thing?

is too much protein on keto really a thing? There is a lot of confusion in keto land about excess protein. Insulin and protein are used to build and repair your muscles, organs and the other important parts of your body. This is an important and beneficial use of protein and insulin. Foods that contain the harder to find nutrients (e.g. potassium, magnesium, choline, vitamin D) typically contain plenty of protein. Actively avoiding protein and can lead to a less nutritious diet. Unless you require therapeutic ketosis for the treatment of cancer, epilepsy, Alzheimers, Parkinson or dementia, you should be chasing vitality, health and nutrition along with stable blood sugar levels rather than some arbitrary ketone level. There are a range of different ways to quantify protein intake. Thinking in terms of percentagescan be more confusing than helpful. Its hard toover-consume protein because it is highly satiating. However, if you avoid protein your body may drive you to consume more calories until you get the protein it needs. If you follow your appetite and focus on foods that contain the vitamins and minerals you need you will probably get enough protein. I recently had the opportun Continue reading >>

    Hi guys,
    Since starting my low carb paleo diet its become more healthy oil based ie paleo keto...i feel great.
    However ive lost 18 Lbs (8.2kg) in a month ...i was 19 stone 10, 125.4 kg, 276 Lbs. And havent been hungry as i eat 1kg, 2.2 Lbs of vegetables a day and enough oil through nuts and a tablespoon of coconut oil that im rarely hungry.
    What are the problems with loosing weight too fast? How much weight can i healthily loose being such a chunky bunny? Peace lol

    As long as you're eating a nutrient rich diet and getting the appropriate macros you should be perfectly fine. You have a lot of unnecessary weight at the moment, the rate of loss will slow as your weight drops to value more suited to your height and body composition.

    That's awesome. Great job getting started! The fact that you're not getting hungry is a really good sign that your body is taking to keto well.
    You can expect to lose 1 to 3 pounds a week till you get within 15 to 40 lbs of your goal weight. It'll probably slow some at that point. This is going to vary from person to person. You may hit a plateau or 3 in the process. When you do, popping out of keto for a day or two and indulging in some carbs can be effective. When you get closer to your goal weight, switching to some sort of cyclic low-carb protocol may be the next step.
    You're unlikely to see the same rate of fat loss as in the first month because a lot of the weight lost when you started was from your muscles losing water. Like 5 to ten pounds of water leave when your muscles empty of glycogen. This is normal and not unhealthy.
    Losing weight too fast is mostly only unhealthy if you're starving or losing muscle. Keto diets defend muscle pretty well. Doing some resistance training helps as well. You can lose weight too fast, but if you're feeling healthy, sleep well, and not seeing a drop in performance at the gym, then you're probably doing great.
    How much weight can you lose? That's not really for anyone else to say. Now that you've made a decision to be healthier, the sky is really the limit. You can get as fit as you want to be, as strong as you want to be. It's just a matter of time and priorities.

    Here's a couple from me: 1. You have to pay attention to what you eat 2. Many take up cooking for the first time 3. Many of Keto-friendly recipes are easy to make (unlike many other diets)

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Finding Your Optimal Protein Intake For A Ketogenic Diet

When embarking on a ketogenic diet for health or fat loss, finding the optimum protein intake can be very confusing for many beginners. For smooth adaptation in the transition to a ketogenic metabolism I typically guide people using a caloric spread of around 70-80% fat, 15-25% protein, and 5% carbohydrate from green fibrous vegetables – but this ratio varies for every individual and using percentages is confusing and misleading in many cases. The best way to look at macronutrients is not in percentage ratios, but in grams. The slew of bloggers and gurus spouting so much conflicting information leads many into a mental stalemate about how much protein they should be eating. This article lays out the metrics I most commonly use to quantify how much protein an individual should intake – there is no magic ratio and the needs, preferences, and goals of the individual determine the amount of protein they will likely require on their ketogenic diet which usually lies within a relatively broad range of 1-2.2g/kg (and in some cases even higher *cringe say the protein-phobic) of bodyweight or .5-1g/lb of lean body mass (Lean Body Mass equals Body Weight minus Body Fat). Myth: “Too muc Continue reading >>

    metformin and lactic acidosis

    I am hoping that I can get some guidance from the members here. There are many of you that have a wealth of information on diabetes and things related so please bear with me. I went to the doctor yesterday and finally asked her for metformin er and was all set to try it out. Then I read the paper that came with it from the pharmacy. The warning about lactic acidosis stopped me in my tracks. Now I am afraid to take it. I searched the posts her a DD about lactic acidosis and I also found that some members said it caused them to be really fatigued. Another member posted that she had trouble with exercise because it caused leg cramps. I feel so overwhelmed now. I really wanted to try it out I believe it could help me but I don't want to put my life at risk to try it. I looked up lactic acidosis and I was reading about the bloods ph and acid in your blood. I have a problem with uric acid in my blood but I believe that is not related to lactic acidosis. I have had a problem with kidney infections and a lot of crystals in my urine and kidney stones the past year, but I believe my kidney function is ok. Does metformin cause lactic acidosis very often? Are the symptoms of lactic acidosis easy enough to pick up on so it can be caught early. I am sorry I am such a worry wart. Thank you in advance for any guidance/reassurance from you.

    All I can tell you is that millions upon millions take met with 0 issues. You are reading the absolute worst side affects. Have you see tv commericails on meds that is any meds. They say could cause heart attack, fatigue, even death no kidding. I been on met and so has my diabetic family and 0 issues other than a tad of diahrea. To me its extemely rare many here are on met me a very very long time on it. What am I saying to me its about the best D med out there other than exercise its free. It is just my opion for what its worth, I know others might have other ideas and of course its is there opinion also. Some take b-12 if they get fatigued on met, I do not get that way, all I can say is to me its as safe as can be.

    Every drug has potential side effects. Some more common than others. I'm not sure of the exact specifics, but I believe that for a side effect to be listed, it needs to happen in 1% of the people that take it.
    My husband has been on met with no side effects other than a little bit of tummy trouble. I have a dozen local diabetic friends (through volunteer work) that are also on it, and have no side effects. I do have one friend who reacts to everything and has no issues with it. I think i've only seen people with this issue a couple of times after about 15 years online haunting a variety of message boards.
    Take for example my warfarin. It can cause bleeding. Even a baby aspirin can cause this. And it does happen to some people. But the vast majority of folks don't have issues.
    Do you have some history of lactic acidosis? Or is this simply general anxiety over something new?
    All meds are a cost benefit analysis. Do you want to try the drug to alleviate a serious issue ( like high blood sugar) or do you decide to refuse it on the basis of a rare side effect and maybe get into trouble due to glucose issues? Why not try it? Discuss with your phamacist what to look for if you are worried. But basically it is a safe, effective drug.

    Ketosis is a process that the body does on an everyday basis, regardless of the number of carbs you eat. Your body adapts to what is put in it, processing different types of nutrients into the fuels that it needs. Proteins, fats, and carbs can all be processed for use. Eating a low carb, high fat diet just ramps up this process, which is a normal and safe chemical reaction. When you eat carbohydrate based foods or excess amounts of protein, your ...
