Fat To Glucose Metabolism

There has been much debate on the subject of the body"s preferred fuel source. This is my take on the topic. The Bio chemistry text book where this info came from: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NB... Instagram: https://instagram.com/ketobrainbrian

Fat For Fuel: Why Dietary Fat, Not Glucose, Is The Preferred Body Fuel

Contrary to popular belief, glucose is NOT the preferred fuel of human metabolism; the fact is that burning dietary fat for fuel may actually be the key to optimal health Carbohydrate intake is the primary factor that determines your body's fat ratio, and processed grains and sugars (particularly fructose) are the primary culprits behind our skyrocketing obesity and diabetes rates According to experts, carbs should make up only 20 percent of your diet, while 50-70 percent of your diet should be healthy fats. Fat is far more satiating than carbs, so if you have cut down on carbs and feel ravenous, this is a sign that you need more healthy fat to burn for fuel By Dr. Mercola While we may consider ourselves to be at the pinnacle of human development, our modern food manufacturing processes have utterly failed at improving health and increasing longevity. During the Paleolithic period, many thousands of years ago, our ancestors ate primarily vegetables, fruit, nuts, roots and meat—and a wide variety of it. This diet was high in fats and protein, and low in grain- and sugar-derived carbohydrates. The average person's diet today, on the other hand, is the complete opposite, and the ave Continue reading >>

    Keto insomnia?

    I've been doing this for 5 days now and I had a lot of trouble sleeping unlike before where I had no trouble falling asleep. Have any of you experienced this?

  2. maresf16

    Yea when I was "adjusting" I kept getting massive headaches and feverish. I woke up every two hours if I was sleeping reasonably well, and sometimes I just drifted in and out of consciousness by the minutes. It's passed now, but I don't remember it taking 5 days.

    How long have you been doing it?
    Maybe it takes longer for me because my metabolism is more screwed up eheh. I've been a mega-sugar addict all my life. This is a HUGE change for me. At least, I don't feel as sluggish now as I did on day 3 so that's pretty good!

Youtube- https://www.youtube.com/user/TheFunsuman Thank you for watching Fatty acids are an important source of energy and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for many cellular organisms. Excess fatty acids, glucose, and other nutrients can be stored efficiently as body fat. Triglycerides yield more than twice as much energy for the same mass as do carbohydrates or proteins. All cell membranes are built up of phospholipids, each of which contains two fatty acids. Fatty acids are also used for protein modification. The metabolism of fatty acids, therefore, consists of catabolic processes that generate energy and primary metabolites from fatty acids, and anabolic processes that create biologically important molecules from fatty acids and other dietary carbon sources.

Relationship Of Dietary Fat To Glucose Metabolism

The relationship between dietary fat and glucose metabolism has been recognized for at least 60 years. In experimental animals, high fat diets result in impaired glucose tolerance. This impairment is associated with decreased basal and insulin-stimulated glucose metabolism. Impaired insulin binding and/or glucose transporters has been related to changes in the fatty acid composition of the membrane induced by dietary fat modification. In humans, high-fat diets, independent of fatty acid profile, have been reported to result in decreased insulin sensitivity. Saturated fat, relative to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat, appears to be more deleterious with respect to fat-induced insulin insensitivity. Some of the adverse effects induced by fat feeding can be ameliorated with omega-3 fatty acid. Epidemiological data in humans suggest that subjects with higher intakes of fat are more prone to develop disturbances in glucose metabolism, type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance, than subjects with lower intakes of fat. Inconsistencies in the data may be attributable to clustering of high intakes of dietary fat (especially animal fat) with obesity and inactivity. Metabolic stud Continue reading >>

    OK, I have an experiences to add that I don’t know how to put gently, so apologies if it is a bit on the umhhh sensitive side:
    My beautiful wife and I have been battling to conceive the last 3.5 years. It was really a terrible time that amounted to us spending lots and lots of money and we went through many treatments. Now I am so chuffed cause our little Peanut is 12 weeks into the pregnancy this week.
    About 6 weeks ago we started chatting about the path we took to get here. There were artificial inseminations, various doctors and we were scheduled for an invetro this September. One of the doctors we went to was a Homeopath. He was not successful in what he did but on one of the visits he did say that I should eat as much butter and fresh avo as I can find cause it helps with the little swimmers. At that time I did not even know about LCHF and didn’t pay much attention to it, but it popped into my mind during the conversation with my wife.
    Seeing that the problem was with me (low sperm count due to the mumps), I have a strange feeling that my diet might have helped here. My wife got pregnant 3 months after I started with LCHF and eating all those butter, coconut oil, avo etc. I browsed the web and cannot actually find any research done on this subject, but there must be a reason why a Homeopath would say something like that. I have to add that this is the only thing that changed in our lives, and my wife is not on LCHF. Maybe just a very very very happy coincidence. But either way, I AM GONNE BE A DAD. Fantastic!
    Fantastic news and allow me to join the chorus of CONGRATULATIONS on here !
    Now read up about LCHF during pregnancy - there's a LOT of info out there and perhaps you and your wife together can change some of your child's destiny... there's a lot of theorizing going on about our adult eating patterns and the way we favour carbs being as a result of our mothers who ate a lot of carbs when they were pregnant with us.... Just saying

    I test my BG using a blood glucose meter - In my case a Roche AccuCheck Nano - an absolutely brilliant little meter.
    (https://www.accu-che...nano/index.html) No, I don't work for them...
    You prick your finger, "suck up" the droplet of blood with a special little BG "stick" that fits into the machine and about 5 seconds later you have the reading. It can store about 500 readings and in my case I went OTT and bought the Roche 360 BG analysis software, so I have a complete database of all my blood checks since I first started measuring. I download the readings from the tester to my PC where those are then nicely graphed over time. This was where I could clearly see how I all but cured my Type 2 diabetes following a LCHF eating plan !
    The meters are relatively cheap, in fact if you can make contact with one of the reps from e.g. Roche they will give you one for free - they make their money off the BG sticks (which some medical aid plans pay for).
    Cool thanks, will have a look at the accu-check-thingy, it would be very interesting to get a more regular reading.
    I just had a glucose check at dischem and the reading was 4.8 after about 10 days into my LCHF diet. Tried to google what the ideal measurement is so if anyone can comment it would help.
    (The dischem test did cost me R35 so might as well buy the home kit. It also included an old tannie nurse who lectured me on my bad eating habits seeing that I'm only eating 3 times a day, how my insulin levels will drop, eating no fruit and carbs will give me diabetes, and how I'm not allowed to buy a home glucose test kit seeing that I don't have diabetes (yet, according to her) and a lot of other old school 'advice' on what and when to eat....)

Monounsaturated Fats: Oleic Acid - Omega 9- These Protect Cell Membranes from Free Radicals. Oleic acid replaces other omega fatty acids in cell membranes. Since oleic acid is less susceptible to oxidation damage than omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, replacing these fatty acids with oleic acid protects your cell membranes from free radicals and other oxidative stressors (1) Palmitoleic Acid - Omega 7- These Reduce Insulin Resistance. Omega-7 protects the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas from glucose-induced toxicity - enhances proliferation of pancreatic beta cells, helping your body optimize blood sugar control with its own natural insulin (2) Reduce Inflammation- Study from the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute in Ohio conducted the first randomized, controlled trial in humans of supplementation with purified omega-7. Subjects were randomly assigned to receive either an omega-7 supplement providing 220 mg palmitoleic acid or a placebo - capsules were taken once daily, with a meal, and blood testing was done at the beginning of the study and again after 30 days. At 30 days, the supplemented group showed a significant mean lowering in C-reactive protein with a 44% reduction compared with the control group. Omega-7-supplemented subjects also had 15% reductions in triglyceride levels (3) Polyunsaturated Fats: Omega 3 & 6- Omega 3s- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA): This 20-carbon fatty acid's main function is to produce chemicals called eicosanoids, which help reduce inflammation. EPA also helps reduce symptoms of depression. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): A 22-carbon fatty acid, DHA makes up about 8% of brain weight and is extremely important for normal brain development and function. EPA and DHA support cellular membranes and keep them flexible - maintaining the fluidity of the cell membranes allows for proper communication between nerve cells and, therefore, helps to support focus and mental clarity. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA): This 18-carbon fatty acid can be converted into EPA and DHA, although the process is not very efficient. ALA is mainly used by the body for energy (4) Omega 6s: The most common omega-6 fat is linoleic acid, which can be converted into longer omega-6 fats such as arachidonic acid (ARA) Like EPA, ARA is used to produce eicosanoids - however, the eicosanoids produced by ARA are more pro-inflammatory. Pro-inflammatory eicosanoids are important chemicals in the immune system, but when too many of them are produced, they can increase inflammation - modern Western diet contains far more omega-6 fatty acids than necessary (4) Trans Fats: Trans fats block the production of Type 1 and 3 prostaglandins (PGs), which are derived from the omega 6 and omega 3 fats, respectfully. Type 1 and 3 PGs help you fight inflammation and benefit your hormonal and nervous system (5) Saturated Fats: Studies in favor of saturated fats- A meta-analysis study, published 2010, which pooled data from 21 studies and included nearly 348,000 adults, found no difference in the risks of heart disease and stroke between people with the lowest and highest intakes of saturated fat (6) A Japanese prospective study that followed 58,000 men for an average of 14 years found no association between saturated fat intake and heart disease, and an inverse association between saturated fat and stroke (i.e. those who ate more saturated fat had a lower risk of stroke) (7) References: 1) Oleic Acid Health Benefits: MooScience.

    This leads me to believe that being in ketosis is actually the natural state, and out of ketosis is a result of excessive carbs ... ( crap your body doesn't need )
    The research is interesting, but I don't think it warrants that conclusion. Using that logic, you could say that because babies drink only breast milk, drinking breast milk is the natural state and eating anything else is unnatural.

  3. red_reader

    My conclusion is slightly different. Since breast milk is so high in fat ( causing the ketosis ) I feel that our natural diet should consist of high fat. Of note is that as soon as babies are taken off of breast milk and placed on ( man made ) formula, they fall out of ketosis.
