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 was also looking for a thread on expired test strips. I only make an assumption you have covered this but didn’t see a thread. Is my search flawed or have you really not explored expired test strips? (I assume I just did a bad search.) Or is it possible this one was too obvious to even have its own thread?

  2. Chris

    My guess is that they works just fine. But it is just an opinion. We haven’t had any expire, so unless someone has some expired ones laying around…

    Expired Dexcom sensors work fine!

    Do you know why? I test about 20 times a day. How would a strip ever survive in my house long enough to expire!

The Three Golden Rules Of Net Carbs

There’s an important milestone in your Keto journey. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you find yourself asking, “What the heck are net carbs?” It turns out; not all carbs are created equal. And, while you will be eating low quantities of carbs, it’s a good idea to learn fully what a carbohydrate is, and how to tell the difference between a net carb and a total carb. This is especially important if you monitor your blood sugar, as total carbs have a stronger impact on your insulin response than net carbs do. Total carbs are what the name suggests; they are the total number of carbohydrates in a product. Very few items, except for some meat and cheese, are naturally low carb. This is where our friend fiber steps in. When fiber is present, your body uses the total number of carbohydrates less the number of fiber. Or, to put it another way, fiber acts like a buddy system and drives the carbs home (they’re still there, but they are no longer the responsible party). If you take the total carbs and subtract the total fiber (and, where applicable, minus sugar alcohols), you are left with net carbs. In Keto we want to keep net carbs low, not necessarily the total carbs. Note: y Continue reading >>

    To my knowledge this has been demonstrated in mice. Mice that were not necessarily fed a healthy diet and that are mice and not as likely to eat that kind of diet like humans are in nature, for the past hundred thousand years.
    However of all the studies in humans, while there have been some negative ones showing arterial stiffness or other issues, there have been none, that I know of, showing the diet to cause insulin resistance and several that showed increased insulin sensitivity.
    I have read that while in ketosis one will develop insulin resistance but it is a temporary and necessary response by your body to ensure that your brain gets enough glucose and, most importantly, that this resistance is completely reversible and sensitivity will go back up if/when one started eating carbs again.

    Does anyone know? Studies? Science?

  2. brownfat

    Blood glucose tracking can give a good sense of changing insulin resistance. If over time on the diet your fasted bg is falling and/or your post prandial bg rise to a particular food diminishes then you are likely becoming more insulin sensitive. Fasting should help.

  3. VLC.MD

    A foundational principle of low carb diets is that they lower insulin resistance in humans.

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've been on a low-carb diet for almost two weeks. For the past week I've experienced a localized headache that comes and goes, and ibuprofen doesn't do much for it. Otherwise I feel better than I've felt in years. Does ketosis cause headaches?

  2. springfieldva

    I've never gotten headaches from eating lower carb. But your diet is much more strict than any I've been on.
    You mentioned in another thread that you have stopped drinking coffee. Could it be a caffeine withdrawal headache? How's your BP?
    I suppose low blood sugar might be an issue...you might want to mention the headaches to your doctor.

    I suppose low blood sugar might be an issue...you might want to mention the headaches to your doctor. I'm allowed coffee, but no sugar or sweetener and only a little bit of milk. So I'm drinking coffee right now. I've had to reduce my coffee intake from five or six cups per day to just one or two, for other reasons, but I adjusted to that a couple of years ago.
    BP is great.
    I'll definitely ask the doctor about headaches later this week.
