Today I broke my 5 day water fast. Find out how much I lost.

Therapeutic Water Fast

All keto. All the time. Kombating Ketogenic Kognitive Dissonance of the Ubiquitous 'Others' Sunday, April 13 2015 I decided to prolong my 'down day' fast of Saturday. I will be doing a therapeutic water fast for up to 20 days as tolerated. After seeing discussion in the Optimal Ketogenic Living Facebook ( ) group (thank you, Raymund Edwards), I thought it would also be a good time to start my own mitigation. So I am considering today "Day 2.5" since my last 'meal' was mid-day on my down day Saturday. Seyfried's premise: While the medical community continues to chase gene mutations in cancer... It is what is *causing* the gene mutations we are not focusing on: the mitochondria.

    Can someone very generally describe how the brain consumes ketoacids/ketone bodies when blood glucose has been completely depleted?

  2. Jayachandran

    Human body is a glucose driven machine which intake carbohydrates and converts to glucose. Energy is yielded from the glucose and glucose is stored as glycogen. When the carbohydrate intake is somehow reduced then body will shift its mechanism and uses the fatty acids to produce energy. Liver synthesis ketones from fatty acids in our diet or from body fat. Ketones(acetoacetate and acetone) are released into the blood, which is absorbed by the brain and synthesis energy from it through their mitochondria.
    The brain gets a portion of its energy from ketone bodies when glucose is less available (e.g., during fasting, strenuous exercise, low carbohydrate, ketogenic diet and in neonates). In the event of low blood glucose, most other tissues have additional energy sources besides ketone bodies (such as fatty acids), but the brain has an obligatory requirement for some glucose. After the diet has been changed to lower blood glucose for 3 days, the brain gets 25% of its energy from ketone bodies.After about 4 days, this goes up to 70% (during the initial stages the brain does not burn ketones, since they are an important substrate for lipid synthesis in the brain). Furthermore, ketones produced from omega-3 fatty acids may reduce cognitive deterioration in old age. Reference
    When the body starts using the fatty acids for energy production, one problem arises in the brain and that is the blood-brain barrier( barrier that separates the circulating blood from the brain extracellular fluid in the central nervous system )Brain cannot use long chain fatty acids because they cannot cross the blood-brain barrier due to their bondage with albumin. As ketones are medium chain fatty acids which can effectively cross the barrier. So brain uses the ketones for energy production by a process called as ketosis. The ketone bodies are then incorporated into acetyl-CoA and used in the citric acid cycle.
    The citric acid cycle – also known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle or the Krebs cycle – is a series of chemical reactions used by all aerobic organisms to generate energy through the oxidation of acetate derived from carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

    Actually there is fatty acid transport through the BBB. Maybe the rate of this transport is not enough, I don't know, I think it does not really matter.
    What really happens here, that the liver prepares the fatty acids, so the brain can use them more easily in the form of ketoacids to produce energy.

    Can insulin resistance truly be reversed?

    I'm a bit unclear on what "insulin resistance reversal" or "diabetes reversal" really means.
    I was diagnosed as prediabetic about 3 weeks ago. I got a blood meter and my first test was postprandial and showed 191.
    I have been water fasting and eating LCHF since then...except for 3 days which is where I get the following info:
    It appears that "real food carbs" (e.g. carrots, onions, etc.) have virtually no effect on me. A meal with ~ 80 grams of real food carbs moved my blood glucose from 83 to 89.
    It also appears that eating LCHF keeps my blood glucose well < 100 but a single sugar/starch/refined flour meal will spike my blood sugar anywhere from 150 to 160 (I've eaten 2 such meals is where I get this data) and it takes a couple of days for my blood sugar to drop back below 100 (at least at my "dawn phenomenon" readings).
    Is "insulin resistance reversal" truly possible or can insulin resistance only be managed as long as sugar/starch/refined is avoided like the plague?
    I know I can't go back to eating like I used to eat...but it would be nice to hope that one day I will be able to "splurge occasionally" and keep normal blood sugar numbers...

  2. qsefthuko

    You might. Some people can some people can't.

  3. qsefthuko

    Apparently LCHF causes a degree of insulin resistance or something. If you have been eating LCHF for a bit and then eat a carby meal it can and probably will raise you higher than you might expect.

http://Daily-Weight-Loss-Calculator.com WHAT'S YOUR WEIGHT-RELATED RISK FOR CANCER? Body Mass Index Calculator (BMI Calculator) My calculator also shows your risk level for weight-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc. ------------------------ What's your BODY MASS INDEX? Who cares!? Not me and neither do you. Your BODY MASS INDEX is just a number and it's pretty much meaningless unless you are a health expert or a doctor. So I created this on-line calculator that translates your BMI (body mass index number) into a HEALTH RATING. Actually, that's exactly what your doctor would do too. This calculator uses industry standard BMI index numbers and industry standard HEALTH classifications so that you can know in seconds whether your doctor would classify you as... --- UNDERWEIGHT, --- HEALTHY, --- OVERWEIGHT, --- OBESE, --- or MORBIDLY OBESE. And that's where most BMI calculators (that you'll find on the internet) stop. But my calculator takes that information a step further and generates a DISEASE RISK LEVEL that's based upon your weight. My calculator again uses industry standard ratings of LOW, MODERATE, HIGH, and VERY HIGH. Did you know that you coul

[science] The Glucose Ketone Index Calculator: A Simple Tool To Monitor Therapeutic Efficacy For Metabolic Management Of Brain Cancer - Nutrition & Metabolism : Keto

by dominoconsultant m 51 188cm/6'2" SW:100kg/220lbs GW:75kg/165lbs achieved!!!!!!!!! Metabolic therapy using ketogenic diets (KD) is emerging as an alternative or complementary approach to the current standard of care for brain cancer management. This therapeutic strategy targets the aerobic fermentation of glucose (Warburg effect), which is the common metabolic malady of most cancers including brain tumors. TheKD targets tumor energy metabolism by lowering blood glucose and elevating blood ketones (-hydroxybutyrate). Brain tumor cells, unlike normal brain cells, cannot use ketone bodies effectively for energy when glucose becomes limiting. Although plasma levels of glucose and ketone bodies have been used separately to predict the therapeutic success of metabolic therapy, daily glucose levels can fluctuate widely in brain cancer patients. This can create difficulty in linking changes in blood glucose and ketones to efficacy of metabolic therapy. LINK ==> PDF Warning Continue reading >>

    > How long is it safe to stay in Ketosis?

    Can anyone tell me how long you can stay in Ketosis safely before taking a break? The reason I ask is that the HCG Diet says to take a 3 week break after six weeks. Is this true of other Low Carb diets?

  2. Liz53

    No you can stay in ketosis pretty much for ever. It's not dangerous. Dr Steve Phinney has been in ketosis for over 10 years.
    HCG severely restricts calories as well as carbs. Most low carb diets do not (Dukan would be an exception).

  3. jaywood

    The HCG diet is a poor diet for ensuring good health. It is a non-sustainable way of life.
    Keotosis is just a differnt physiological state that our bodies can function in. I have not read anywhere that there are any long term problems to contend with.

    A low carb helps reduce blood sugars and insulin levels and helps with the management of many of the diseases of modern civilisation (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s). We become insulin resistant when our body fat can’t store any more energy. Excess energy is then stored in the liver, pancreas, heart, brain and other organs that are more insulin sensitive. We also see increased levels of energy in o ...
