Diabetes & Ketogenic Diet: Can You Manage Your Diabetes On A Ketogenic Diet?

In this article we will cover what a Ketogenic diet is and if you can manage your diabetes while on this diet. Ketogenic diet for diabetics is a highly controversial topic, but we will break down everything here for you! As a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), I have to tell you from the start I will have a biased view here. Sorry, but I feel that I need to be completely honest right up front! I will however, present all the evidence that is available currently on the subject. As a CDE, I have been taught to follow the American Diabetes Association Dietary Guidelines for Americans which is low in carbohydrates, high in fiber, with fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains. The Ketogenic Diet this article will be discussing is much lower in carbohydrates, in order to promote the state of nutritional ketosis, or the fat burning state for weight loss. What is a Ketogenic Diet? The Ketogenic Diet is a low carbohydrate diet, consisting initially of less than 20 carbohydrates per day. Not per meal, yes, you heard me correctly, per day. It is not for the faint of heart and yes I am writing from experience. Of course I have tried it! Hasn’t everybody in America at some point who has want Continue reading >>

    Hi there! So I'm a noob, I guess you could say, and I've been wanting to lose a lot of fat for a while now but nothing has worked. So I researched and decided to take up the Keto diet.
    It is Saturday and I have been on it since Monday. I have ketostix, and I have not tested positive for ketones at ALL. It's been negative the whole time. I'm following the diet to a tee! (Except last night, I drank at a club, but I had a rockstar vodka light with no carbohydrates and a few other drinks that were just gin&tonic's and vodka and tonic - nothing sugary!)
    I am 19, 130 pounds, and I'm not looking for strength, I do 15 reps of most exercises to try and get lean and tone.
    I weight lift 3-4 times a week.
    Monday - Shoulders and back and abs
    Wednesday - Legs & Chest (sometimes move the Chest to a day in between)
    Friday - Tri's and Bi's
    And I do cardio in the in between days, or sometimes a bit on the days when I weight lift. Like intervals on the treadmill, or a bit of cycling, or stairmaster.
    How I'm eating?
    I have been having 20 g of carbs or less per day.
    High fat and moderate protein.
    I looked it up and I'm having about 100 g of protein or a bit more per day.
    And for fat it said 89 g, but I go a little over sometimes, as it's hard to get right on.
    Example:
    Wake up/Breakfast - Scrambled eggs of about 2 egg whites/2 whole eggs or somtimes I do 4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs. with marble cheddar cheese on it. and 2-4 Slices of Turkey Bacon
    I eat lots of turkey slim pepperettes for snacks, cheese, cold cuts like tomato basil turkey and chicken breast roast and such. Haven't had peanut butter cause I'm scared it won't help me.
    I have Dole's spring mix lettuce by itself with Renee's wellness yogurt dressing like roasted garlic or peppercorn ranch (like 4 - 4.5 g of fat and 1 g of carbs per tbsp, 0.3 g of protein) and sometimes I put chicken breast in it.
    Or I eat angus burger without the bun, and some cheese.
    Or if I wanted something a bit greasy (kinda gross) I have the top dog hot dogs with some melted cheese.
    As you can see, I'm not eating many carbs at all
    I'm not losing weight
    And I'm testing negative for ketones...
    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG????????
    So frustrating! It's been 6 days!!!!!!!

    Throw away the ketostix's, no need for them.
    Try to eat alittle more protein, and the rest all fat. If you are truly eating less than 20 net carbs you should be going into keto very soon, it takes some people a bit, thats why its good to stay on it with no carbups for at least 2 weeks to let you body get use to it.
    You need to track your calories and make sure your not eating too much or too little. You need to aim for burning 500 calories more than your eating to start losing weight, also you should start losing water weight as well without having carbs.
    Make sure you are getting fiber at least around 20+ g's a day, thats a key to get the waste out which will carry some weight as well.

    Hey there! I think that everything looks just about right but I would up your fat because when the body thinks it is not getting enough fat it will hold onto it. I am in the same range as u and my macros work very well for me. I'm 18, about 5' 3" and depending on the day normally around 133. It took me around 16 days to get into ketosis so it differs for many people, but i wouldn't worry about it because u don't have to be in ketosis to lose weight, just need a deficit.
    My macros:
    Calories: Maintenance: 2,025
    Cut: 1,525
    Protein: 114g
    Fat: 110g
    Carbs: 19g

Ever wonder why you can't lose weight? If you stopped losing weight and you think, "why can't I lose my belly fat?" Watch this video. FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O5k1TJ Lose Weight Fast Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3OF-... Lose Weight Fast Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4WkS... Hey guys welcome to part 3 of how to lose weight fast if you haven't seen parts 1 and 2 yet the links are in the description. Today I want to go over exactly what you're going to do when you plateau and stop losing weight. No matter what you can be confident that your weight loss will come to a halt. It's not about if you'll stop losing weight it's a matter of when. So since this is so expected and common it doesn't mean that you're doing something wrong when you stop losing weight. It just means that adjustments may have to be made due to the fact that throughout the fat loss process things in your body are constantly changing. Before I give you the steps that you're going to take to break through a weight loss plateau let's first make sure that what you're experiencing is actually a plateau. First let me bring back a point that I made in the first video weight and fat aren't the same thing. If your weight isn't going down but your clothes fit better and you've been tracking your waist and hip measurements and they're going down too you may have put on some muscle or you might be holding a little more water. It's extremely important that you measure your progress to be successful and it's also important to use multiple methods of measurement. So if you see that your waist is getting smaller but the number on the scale isn't falling, that wouldn't be considered a weight loss plateau. Another thing that wouldn't be considered a weight loss plateau is if you weigh yourself every week and one week you don't lose weight. Many people are delusional when it comes to their beliefs about what kind of results are possible within a certain period of time. I mean i can't blame them because there's so much hype and quick fixes out there that most people really do believe that there's something wrong with them if they can't lose 5 pounds in a week. It's important that you understand that progress in Fitness in regard to both losing weight and building muscle is not linear. It's going to go up and down due to a ton of reasons many of which are completely out of your control. The problem is most people don't understand this very important fact. So what you get from most of these people that don't lose weight or maybe even worse, gain some weight for one weigh in. You get one out of two responses . Response 1 is to Crank it up. Crank the cardio way up dramatically reduce calories and stress over your weight 24/7. Response 2 is to say screw it, you tried, and the diet didn't work and now to feel better about yourself you get to binge eat which leads right back to a vicious cycle. Both response 1 and response 2 are incorrect responses. If you don't lose weight or even gain weight between one of your weekly weigh- ins the correct response is to continue doing exactly what you've been doing without stressing over it one bit for at least another week. Sometimes I would recommend waiting even longer before changing anything if you don't have a deadline or an event that you have coming up. And the reason for that is simply because sometimes your weight loss will stall and pick right back up again, I've seen it so many times before. And again the reason why people are unaccepting of this is because they have false Notions of what's possible in a given time frame. When you weigh yourself if you lose even a pound in a week then that's really really good. If you don't lose a pound but your waist goes down half an inch then that's really really good . Okay so let's say that you've waited it out you got on the scale for a second week or may be even a 3rd week and you measured yourself and still no progress. Why is this happening? Well there are number different reasons but usually the two biggest ones are that you're not tracking the amount of calories you're taking in correctly or you've already lost some weight and because you are a smaller person now, even if only by 5 pounds you now burn less calories at rest. This is why it's important to always be recalculating your BMR or your Basal metabolic rate as you lose weight.

Can Eating Mostly Fat Help You Lose Weight?

Every January, fat's in the crosshairs of health columnists, fitness magazines, and desperate Americans. This year, PopSci looks at the macronutrient beyond its most negative associations. What’s fat good for? How do we get it to go where we want it to? Where does it wander when it’s lost? This, my friends, is Fat Month. The ketogenic diet didn’t start as a weight-loss method. It was a treatment for epileptic kids—one of the few that worked, especially for those who had already tried traditional medications. But odds are the only people you’ll hear talking about it today are those looking to drop a few pounds without giving up butter. Keto, as it’s known among dieters, is based around getting most of your calories from fat, some from protein, and almost none from carbohydrates. It’s like a more extreme form of Atkins, except keto actually came first. It became an epilepsy treatment back in the 1920s, whereas the weight-loss paper that inspired Dr. Atkins to establish his low-carb diet wasn’t published until 1958. The idea of eating fat in order to lose fat is obviously appealing. Oils and fats are filling and soothing, so prospective dieters feel they might not have Continue reading >>

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 anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

Ketogenic Diet: Is The Ultimate Low-carb Diet Good For You?

Recently, many of my patients have been asking about a ketogenic diet. Is it safe? Would you recommend it? Despite the recent hype, a ketogenic diet is not something new. In medicine, we have been using it for almost 100 years to treat drug-resistant epilepsy, especially in children. In the 1970s, Dr. Atkins popularized his very-low-carbohydrate diet for weight loss that began with a very strict two-week ketogenic phase. Over the years, other fad diets incorporated a similar approach for weight loss. What is a ketogenic diet? In essence, it is a diet that causes the body to release ketones into the bloodstream. Most cells prefer to use blood sugar, which comes from carbohydrates, as the body’s main source of energy. In the absence of circulating blood sugar from food, we start breaking down stored fat into molecules called ketone bodies (the process is called ketosis). Once you reach ketosis, most cells will use ketone bodies to generate energy until we start eating carbohydrates again. The shift, from using circulating glucose to breaking down stored fat as a source of energy, usually happens over two to four days of eating fewer than 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day.
