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

    I have read a lot of posts and web sites about ketosis and about "weight loss," and I've read some books, as well. Based on what I've read, it seems that it would be impossible to "burn fat" (in the sense of burning body fat) without entering ketosis. If I have this right, the body burns energy supplies in these stages:
    1) alcohol (e.g. most of what is in beer)
    2) blood sugars (e.g. table sugar, most of the stuff grains break down into, fruit sugars, etc.)
    3) glycogen (stored in muscles)
    4) fat (fats that are eaten come first, followed by body fat)
    5) protein (comes last, after depletion of all other easily available stores of energy)
    It would seem logical, if this is right, that as long as your body has stores of alcohol, blood sugars, and glycogen, no body fat will be burned.
    So, to go on, if I have this right, then regardless of the kind of diet you are on, the only way to lose "weight" (in the sense of losing fat, which is the only kind of weight loss 99% of us are interested in) is to enter ketosis.
    Finally, if this is right, then any diet that promises "weight loss" (be it Ornish, the Paleo Diet, Atkins, or whatever) is promising that you will enter ketosis. If not, you will not actually "lose weight" in any sense you could desire. And it follows from this that any diet that works to any degree has no business warning people off ketosis, since it is going to occur.
    It also follows from this, in general although perhaps not in every situation, that the fewer carbs you eat, the more body fat you will burn (as long as you are in a calorie deficit).
    Is this right or wrong? Or right in some ways, but wrong in others?
    Thank you, list members...
    By the way, I bring this up in part because I have read quite a few critiques of Atkins, Paleo, and all "low carb diets," and every single one of them seems to screech about the supposed dangers of ketosis. I remember reading this back in the 1980s: "the one thing you don't want to do is enter ketosis, because then your body will be in starvation mode and will start hoarding ever single calorie," blah, blah, blah.

    I don't know that I can provide a clear and/or complete answer to that question -- so I'll leave it to others. I would like to point out though that your body usually burns a mixture of fuels. So when both glucose and circulating fats are available (as they usually are) your body doesn't use the glucose exclusively (only moving on to the fats when no further glucose is available). Instead, it uses both simultaneously.
    I hope that helps. Basically, I guess I'm trying to say that you are always "burning fat". The key to weightloss is getting your body into a state where you're burning more of it than you're storing (on average). Reducing carbohydrates tends to help many people achieve this (and certainly an excess of carbs can make it difficult or even impossible), but I don't think ketosis necessarily required (depending on one's metabolism). In the past, I've successfully "cut up" with carbs in the 350g/day range.

    My ex-husband certainly lost fat without being in ketosis. He lost about 30 pounds on a low fat diet and exercise just before we met. He was miserable and hungry the entire time, but he thought CW was the only way to go. I somehow doubt he was in ketosis eating pasta every other night.

How A Ketogenic Diet Can Help You Lose Weight Without Feeling Hungry

Every year in America, millions of people lose weight only to gain it again. That’s because the standard American diet—eat less, move more—has a fundamental flaw. When you eat less, your body starts getting its energy from stored fat instead of the food you consume. That’s all well and good—it’s the goal of the diet after all—but there’s a problem. Your body craves the status quo, so when you force your body to use stored fat for energy, it responds by asking you to eat more fat so it can start storing it again. That’s why so many people’s weight yo-yos. But it doesn’t have to be that way. A ketogenic diet can bio-hack your body into burning fat without demanding that you eat more. When you eat sugars and carbs, your blood sugar fluctuates severely. You eat a bagel, your blood sugar spikes and when that spike is over, you want another bagel. If you drastically limit the sugars and carbs you eat, you won’t get those big fluctuations in blood sugar that have you craving pasta, bread and butter, and other carb-heavy foods. After you eat, your intestines release something called cholecystokinin (CKK) which signals your brain that you’re full of food and should Continue reading >>

    I always wondered about this. How do you loose weight if you still eat carbs and do not enter ketosis? I know that, broadly speaking, weight loss will occur from a calorie deficit, but if you are not in ketosis, how is you body getting to the fat? If it is burning glucose and glycogen, how is your body fat reduced? Thanks guys!

  2. wm1989

    You really don't have to be low carb to go into ketosis. Low enough calories will cause it to happen.

    Ketosis is not actually how you burn most of the fat. It is only a response to get energy across the blood brain barrier.

    Even during ketosis, most fat is burned through tradition fatty acid metabolism. This is why ketone production will go down the more deep into the keto diet you go. Your body gets good at using fatty acids (more mitochondria).

    Lipolysis can be triggered by glucagon (low carb and low calorie environments), testosterone, growth hormone, epinephrine... And probably others. No need to reduce carbs for the others.

    You use fat stores for energy even when gaining weight, you just add to them faster than your body uses them. Think of it as a balanced system normally. Keto diets shifts the energy usage balance sharply towards fats, also limits the body's ability to store extra fat.

    Ketosis is not actually how you burn most of the fat. It is only a response to get energy across the blood brain barrier.
    Is this mentioned in all the books about eating a diet not-so-rich in carbs that I have not read? Taubes, Ninoltz, etc? It isn't something I've known before just now and I watch videos and read up online, but don't have time for books.

The Low-carb Fat Burn Diet Review

Does The Low-Carb Fat Burn Diet work? That’s what you’re here for, and that’s what we set out to answer. This review will give you an overview of the program and a look at its efficacy. Prior to getting into the actual review, it may be good to discuss low-carb diets and how they work. In the simplest of terms, a low-carb diet changes the way the body processes fuel for energy. In most situations when carbohydrates are consumed on a daily basis, the body uses only carbs to create the energy needed for the body and mind to function normally. The body processes carbohydrates differently than it processes other things like protein and fat. Your body converts carbs into glucose to power and feed cells. However, when on a low-carb diet, carbohydrate intake is largely limited or completely eliminated. When this happens the body goes into a state of ketosis. This simply means that instead of burning carbohydrates for fuel or energy, the body now burns fat. This has far-reaching implications in that fat can be burned and weight can be lost more effectively when this happens. As an added benefit, once the body is in ketosis, it produces ketones that help to fuel the body and the mind. Continue reading >>

    No, you burn fat all the time. It's our primary reserve/storage for energy. Ketosis only happens when you are running low on carbohydrates. "Fats burn in the flame of carbohydrates." Ketosis isn't good and makes the blood acidic. That being said, I think 3/4 of the brain's needs can met by ketone bodies during starvation. Wow, my biochem class paid off!

    Ketosis is a normal metabolic process. When the body does not have enough glucose for energy, it burns stored fats instead; this results in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body.

The aim of the diet is to try and burn unwanted fat by forcing the body to rely on fat for energy, rather than carbohydrates. Ketosis is also commonly observed in patien ...
