Is It Better To Be In Ketosis To A Greater Degree?

Is it better to be in ketosis to a greater degree? Will one become better at intense fat burning during exercise if one is in ketosis to a relatively greater degree? I can not run at 80% of max heart rate while in ketosis. I hope to get there. Will I get there faster if my ketones are 2.5 all the time instead of 1.5 all the time? If so, how do I get more ketones? Will 10g net carbs daily produce more ketones than 30g net carbs daily? I know that Dr. Phinney has said that he stays above 0.5 ketones with 50g carbs daily. Many others in this forum seem to have less carbs and more ketones. Is there an advantage to that? try it! you have to experiment for things like this because so much depends on the individual. I have found that body goes through so many changes with this that you basically turn a little mad scientist sometimes to see what works for you. You sound like a bit of a numbers fanatic though which i am not. If I want to run faster I just swig some coconut oil And run fast. If i want to burn up stored fat i just dont eat and run slow until I am borderline passing out. I try to focus more on what and how I am feeling more than things like numbers. From what Ive read, it doe Continue reading >>

    So what happens during cardio when you're in ketosis?




    1 Answer







    One of the best answers to this can be found if you Google Peter Attia's presentations that give an awesome summary on the subject.
    Generally speaking, if you are healthy (not Type 1 diabetic), the energy in your mitochondria is generated from ketone bodies that get converted into Acetyl CoA and enter the Krebs cycle, as opposed to when Acetyl CoA is generated from pyruvate (a byproduct of anaerobic glucose metabolism).
    Ketone bodies are a "cleaner" and a more stable fuel for cardio/endurance exercise (no "bonking" or blood glucose/insuline fluctuations that come from traditional carb-refeeding).

    Ketone bodies typically, then, come as a byproduct of body fat metabolism. Essentially, you just ecome a "fat-burning machine", when you exercise in the state of ketosis.

How To Compromise Between Keeping Ketone-levels High And Not Losing Weight?

How to compromise between keeping ketone-levels high and not losing weight? My name is Erik, Im 33 years old, from Sweden, and this is my first post on the forum! Ive been on a calorie restricted ketogenic diet since april this year to keep a couple of (benign) tumors from growing, or at least slow them down. Having watched and read a lot by Thomas Seyfried on battling cancer with the ketogenic diet i thought id give it a try. I also mailed him and asked if the diet would have effect on benign tumors as well, and he thought it would. Im doing a MRI and a gastroscopic ultrasound early/mid-january and the results will be very interesting! As a very nice side-effect Ive gone from 104 to 85 kg (229 to 187 pounds, I think) since starting the diet. Ive been more or less overweight since childhood, so the weightloss is most welcome. According to Seyfried and CO, you should ideally reach a glucose/ketone-index of around 1 for the diet to be effective against tumors, but i can only reach that number while calorie-restricted, which he also points out. As of now, I have approx 7-8% body fat, and really dont feel the need to lose any more weight Ive been doing IF (approx 16/8) since the start Continue reading >>

    nuEvery other day I see a post about "Keto-flu" or someone passing out, getting dizzy or having low energy levels. Sometimes people complain of nausea but that is another thing all together.
    IF YOU WANT TO SKIP THE SCIENCE, JUST FOLLOW THE 2 RULES BELOW AND BE HAPPY*
    So let me explain to you what "Keto Flu" really is. Everybody that ends up on a Keto diet inevitably ends up cutting out a ton of processed food. With all the processed food, you end up cutting out most of your sodium intake. We have been told sodium is bad for us, just like saturated fat right? Not exactly, YOU ACTUALLY NEED MORE SALT THAN EVER UNDER A VERY LOW CARB DIET. When you cut back your carbs, you don't end up with blood sugar spikes every time you eat and digest food, because well, your not eating any sugar. As a result, your body doesn't need to elevate your circulating insulin levels to keep your blood sugar at normal levels. Normally, your kidneys tend to store and reuse a lot of sodium, under normal conditions. When your insulin levels are very low and stable, your kidneys through various horomonal mechanisms go into a diuretic type mode, excreting lots of sodium, potassium and water. The net effect is, if YOU DO NOT REPLACE YOUR SALT YOU GET LOW BLOOD PRESSURE. [1] Symptoms of low blood pressure include, dizziness, weakness and fatigue.
    Another aspect of Keto-flu can include the nausea and diarreah many new keto dieters sometimes experience. If you go from a high carb diet, straight to Keto in one giant leap. You are probably going to have a bad time. Let me go over some biology.
    When you eat foods, all your macro nutrients are broken down into their constituent parts such as simple sugars, amino acids, fiber and lipids. When you consume fat, various pancreatic enzymes and bile salts from your liver and gallbladder all work to break the fats/lipids down into cholesterol, triglycerides and other components. ***IT takes time for the liver, gall-bladder and pancreas to up-regulate the production of bile/enzymes in order to accommodate a large amount of fat. If you ingest a large amount of fat and your organs don't produce enough of these things to break it down, you can get very nauseated from undigested fat.
    Another thing that can happen with new keto-dieters is diarrhea. You may or may not know, there is a diverse world of bacteria, yeast and other microorganisms in your gut. Sometimes, they are beneficial and assist in digesting food, and sometimes they are simply taking advantage of a free meal. Every organism in your gut is constantly vying for space and nutrients in your gut, its like a world war 2 that never ends with some sides taking more territory than others. If your like most people and have taken rounds of antibiotics or consumed a standard american diet with tons of sugar/carbs and alcohol. It is like you just wiped England and France off the map and threw money and food out of helicopters to the German army. Basically, you probably messed up the balance of power, letting e. coli, H. pylori and Candida A. to start taking over where they shouldn't. This is called Gut Dysbiosis and is part of the reason Keto and Paleo can be so beneficial for auto-immune disorders. We now know 70% of our immune system is located in our gut ecosystem, and these gut bacteria have connections to our nervous system and can initiate cravings as if they were telling us to feed them with certain food.[2]
    What this means for Keto: Most these "bad" microorganisms overgrow because we ate too much sugar, drank too much booze or took a ton of antibiotics. When you stop eating carbs, you cause mass genocide in your gut as many sugar dependent microorganisms die by the billions from starvation. The rotting corpses of these microorganisms can release chemicals and initiate inflammation inside your gut. leaving you with a few days of diarrhea and nausea at the beginning of your keto experience.
    Let me lay down two rules of happy ketosis dieting. If you don't follow these rules, you probably won't be happy and it might sabotage your keto experience.
    RULE ONE! . Supplement with 1 TEASPOON of salt per day, whether you want to or not! (magnesium supplements can help also)
    Practical considerations: Easiest to dump a teaspoon of salt into heavily buttered vegetables.
    RULE TWO!. If your new to keto, reduce your carbs GRADUALLY to let your stomach and body adapt instead of being shocked into keto.

    Brilliant post and the science seems solid based on what I've read as well. Very informative.

    And that`s why I felt so awful for the first two days... The day before starting keto I literally drank and ate everything I wanted with high carbs including a sixpack of coke and a lot of bread.
    Day 3 right now, feeling a lot better. It seems that my cardio exersises help to adjust too.

Celebrating Therapeutic Glucose Ketone Index (gki) Of1!

The glucose ketone index is a ratiototrack your metabolic state. Dr. Thomas Seyfried suggests in his book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease ,that you aim for a GKI between 0.7 to 2.o with a goal of 1. Today, Todd hit 1! When fighting cancer with the Ketogenic Diet, the goal is to depletethe supply of sugar/glucoseto thecancer cells and elevate the blood ketone level between 2-5 mmol depending on who you ask. Elevated ketone bodies have a very promising effect on shrinking tumors in lab & case studies. Getting your blood glucose down & ketones elevated can be a challenging task for some. What works for some may not for others. Through trial & error, Todd found out that tomatoes, almonds & too much dairy will kick him out of ketosis . There are many factors that play into the equation of raisingglucose including too much protein to any type of stress on the body. Heres how we got to 1. Precision Xtra monitor measure blood glucose in mg/dl and ketones in mmol so the glucose needs to be converted into mmol. Continue reading >>

    I got out of the hospital yesterday, I had food poisoning and got admitted for Ketoacidosis. I feel a lot better now but, I'm in a little discomfort. My stomachs bothers me somewhat after I've eaten and I'm a little uneasy when I'm walking. I was in bed for a day and a half so I'm sure I'm just weak. But, did you recover right away or, did you take a day or two?

    3 days from start of IV fluids. When you get home, try to drink water instead of your usual fluids for a day or so. I find it helps get me back on track faster. Also, keep an eye on your BG a bit tighter for a few days after. The whole DKA resolution treatment and IV fluids can alter the way your BG floats (in some interesting ways) until you get back into your normal groove/routine.

    This is somewhat normal. How long have you been on a ketogenic diet? Are you diabetic? Ketone numbers tend to be lowest in the morning for those of us on a ketogenic dietand diabetics tend to have an even more pronounced variance between morning and evening levels. I do find it depends on what I ate the night before. If I am very strict on carbs, almost none, then it can go higher. But As long as Im below 30ish carbs Im good. Do you ever have a ...
