Do Fiber Carbs Count In Ketosis?

Test of cooked potato starch here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hODM6... To support channel paypal.me/ketorevo To send me a message [email protected] Nowadays this resistant starch thing is so popular so I decided to take a risk and test it on myself. Was wandered how bad it would affect my blood glucose readings. So here it is: Bob's Red Mill Unmodified potato starch which is believed to consist mostly of resistant starch (unless cooked). Hi. This is 600 calorie keto blood sugar test (600CKBST) and today we check how eating unmodified potato starch is going to affect my blood sugar level. If you are in a state of ketosis, following ketogenic diet or trying to manage diabetes you need to control blood glucose aspecially after your meals. Inspired by works of Jason Wittrock, Thomas Delauer, Keto Connect, Dr. Eric Berg, Dr. Phinney, Dr. Bikman, Tim Noakes, Dr. Jason Fung, Eric Westman, Gary Taubes, Atkins, Moore and others I am following low carb high fat (LCHF). So by doing this project I am trying to figure out which foods and dishes are going to work for me to keep me full and to keep my insulin level low at the same time.

Do You Need Fiber On A Ketogenic Diet? The Benefits Of Resistant Starch

Do You Need Fiber on a Ketogenic Diet? The Benefits of Resistant Starch Whilst I do not follow a ketogenic diet most of the time, I do like to go keto every once in awhile. This helps to reset my insulin sensitivity and I get the brain benefits from the beta hydroxybutyrate . I stock up on the usual keto diet supplements such as MCT oil, then I begin my keto reset. Information such as this paper however, leaves me asking how does ketosis affect gut health? Fiber is said to be a key player in keeping your microbiome healthy, but when we think fiber, we think carbs. Keen to learn more about the information out there on this topic, I dug into the research. Here is what I found. We should take a brief look at what fiber actually is and what role it plays in our health. When we speak of fiber in relation to diet, we are talking about plant fiber that we get from food. There are two types of fiber, soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves into water and is fermented by our good bacteria in the colon. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve into water and acts as a bulking agent in our poop and helps keep us regular. You may even be taking psyllium husk as one of your keto di Continue reading >>

    I have had great success with two rounds of Atkins in the past (each time losing over 50lb).
    But I have had two recent attempts to get back into the diet (on a quite rigorous induction regimen) and it is like the "mechanism" has broken. My body is not going into ketosis after 2 or even 3 weeks on the diet and (unsurprisingly) this is also reflected by lack of weight loss or measurements loss; and, indeed, on the latest attempt . . . I put ON three pounds. Whereas previously ketone strips were highly reactive (bright pink) they did not show ANY color at all after the induction periods. Obviously, absent the fat-burning, then a relatively fat-heavy intake is bound to result in weight gain. I also do not have that sense of increased energy that comes with being in fat-burning mode.
    It is almost as if my body has learned something about the diet and it will no longer cooperate with it. Either that, or it is something to do with being older (near 60).
    Has anyone else seen this phenomenon, and have they found any strategy to get around it.
    I always felt Atkins was a reliable way for me to be able to shed pounds, but without its "magic bullet" I feel rather lost as to what to try, as I have had very bad lucky with restrictive calorie (and other) diets.

    Ketostix are unreliable, throw them away and just follow the rules. If you do, then you have to be in ketosis because the body doesn't have carbs to burn for energy so it uses fat instead - if it didn't then you'd be dead!
    Putting on 3 pounds suggests that either you're eating too much, eating the wrong things or have some intolerance to something you're having. Without knowing what you eat on a typical day and how much you eat, then we can't really help. Post a list of what you're eating and we'll take a look.

  3. Ellen

    If you aren't getting into ketosis (and Kathryn is right about the ketostix) then somewhere you're taking in too many carbs and/or too much protein. If you are actually in ketosis but not losing...Or indeed gaining, then you are either sensitive to something you're eating...Like sweeteners for instance, or you are generally eating too much.
    Post a days menu with quantities and we'll take a look

Carbs From Fiber: Are They Keto-friendly?

Carbs from Fiber: Are they Keto-friendly? Fiber is necessary for a lot of digestive processes. One of the major downsides to the ketogenic diet is having to actively look for sources of soluble fiber. Soluble, or Insoluble. That is the question... There are two primary types of fiber we eat, soluble and insoluble. Vegetables, especially leafy greens, are heavy in insoluble fibers. Such fibers are super hard for your body to digest, considering the fact that they don't dissolve in water. They, therefore, tend to pass right through your digestive tract. Because of this, insoluble fibers are believed to have little to zero caloric load. These fibers promote healthy bacterial growth, remove toxins and waste from the digestive tract, and result in better...uh... "movements". They are found in things such as legumes, grains, nuts/seeds and some vegetables. Soluble fibers are partly digested due to being a bit easier on the gut to deal with. However, they are digested only partially, since they are too difficult of a carbohydrate to breakdown. As a result, these carbohydrates only account for roughly 2 calories per gram, of which do not effect blood sugar. Think about that, they're carbs Continue reading >>

    I'm a Hospice Nurse, and yes, sometimes there is a death smell. That's one reason, when I do post mortem care, I look for perfume, Cologne, even baby powder. I sprinkle some on the patient, some on the bed linens-not enough to be overpowering, just so the family has a better sensory memory when they say their final goodbye.

    I know cancer has a distinctive odor oftentimes, that I detect. And there must be something to it, because dogs can be trained to "sniff out cancer".
    I don't see much dying where I am cause I am not in the hospital setting, but I can smell certain infections and some weird foul odor that goes with certain cancers.
    I have often thought I was crazy, but not anymore. My sense of smell is so keen it drives me crazy sometimes. I smell things my colleagues do not, and often.

  3. LeslieAlexander

    i have noticed this as well and googled "smell of death" because i smelled it last night at work. i've smelled it before, even with animals. i was curious if anyone else has. I am sure when i go to work next my patient will be dead. smelling that smell last night helped me care for him better. i hope he goes in peace.

In Keto Diets, Does Fiber Count Towards Your Carb Totals?

In Keto diets, does fiber count towards your carb totals? In Keto diets, does fiber count towards your carb totals? I've used the search function and found conflicting answers. I want to start a Keto diet to lean out for the summer, but want to make sure I do it right. I've pretty much figured out my diet, with the exception of this question. Also some processed foods (i.e. protien bars) count "net carbs", if I consume these products should I count the entire carb total or just the "net carb" total? Just the net carb total for your total carbs that day (don't include the fiber). The point of keto is to minimize glycogen stores and to train the body to burn fat for fuel. When usable carbs are present, the body has little desire to use fat. Fiber is a carb but it does not provide energy for the body. Hence, you do not count fiber as a carb while on this diet. But I think for simplicity of counting calories, some people count it as a calorie... but they still disregard its effects on metabolism (which is zero). Personally, I take all fiber out of my calorie calculations. If something is 100 grams of carbs with 99 grams of fiber, then you count 1 gram of carbs. I rep back 1K+ (please Continue reading >>

    Hi There!
    I wondered what I am supposed to be looking for on these ketostix? Are we shooting for the deeper purple color or trying to stay somewhere in the middle of the color chart?
    Is the darker the better? Reading the instructions on the box would have me think that dark purple is BAD.
    Thanks for your input!

  2. claire2

    Hi, ketostix seem to confuse lots of people. Atkins says if you are turning them any color you are in ketosis. Some people feel that if you turn them dark purple you are dehydrated and lots of people just skip them because they are annoying - some days dark,some days light...
    I use them and keep a log so that I can compare what I have been eating to the color I am getting(and its not what you eat that day but the day before that affects the color - at least for me)
    They have been very helpful to me now that I am adding carbs post-induction. For instance - fruit knocks me out of ketosis pretty quick but potatoes in moderation have no effect.
    I think everyone is different and its more important that YOU know how your body behaves than to compare it others - but thats just my opinion!
    Good luck with this woe!

  3. rubyg64

    from some of the threads that I have read though the darker purple can mean dehydration. Drink plenty, at least 64 oz and try for more.
    I noticed that my color came down into the mid pink range when I drank all my water.
    Also I guess that they can turn color because of the fat you are eating and so they are not really a good thing. They can't tell the difference between,I think, the fat you are eating and the fat you are burning. Something like that. I gave them up and go by the scale once a week and my measurements.
    Hoped I helped some.
