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. I am looking forward to the following benefits: Cleanup of all the defective cells from the prolonged illness, Eating the plaques in all vessels, but especially the coronary arteries and brain, Improving overall inflammation, but especially that which continues to plague me in terms of headaches and carpal tunnel Dad has type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease...

    I do a lot of reading about low carb/kenogenic diets, and typically I see people are in ketosis and losing weight between 20-60 net grams of carbs a day. I began my "low carb" (not low enough for some people) with a goal of <100 net grams a day, and I've lost about 2 lbs a week. My current calorie goal is 1200 because that's just what was recommended when I first joined myfitnesspal, and I really eat between 1100-1800 net calories, depending on my exercise and how many low carb snacks I decide to eat. I used ketostrips when I first started my diet, I had small to trace amounts detected and I was losing weight. I haven't used a test strip in a few weeks, but I've been keeping my carbs consistently lower than when I first started, anyway. I am on the cross country team at my college, so exercise is a necessity for me. I used to just eat whatever I wanted around 1200 calories a day, and would lose weight, but I couldn't stick to it and never got results like I have been eating a reduced carb amount.
    To anyone else who eats reduced carbs and exercises around 40 min a day 6 days a week, how many carbs do you eat to lose weight? Heck, even if you don't exercise, please let me know.
    I am probably going to buy more test strips to make sure I'm doing it right, but sometimes I think I might be eating too many carbs, and I just lose weight because of the amount of calories I eat. I just don't know! I hope to find somebody who can eat as many carbs as I do and still be burning fat!

    I don't work out everyday, and when I do, it's just vigorous walking. I aim for as close to zero as possible, with no more than 75g in any one day. It's almost always way less than that. Also, a ketogenic diet isn't just low carb, it's also high-fat. If you can do at least 50% of calories from fat, that would help out any ketosis.
    On a personal note, I'd encourage you to not get too caught up focusing on the strips. I was like that for a long time and it frustrated me more than it helped (although it did help a bit).

    As a diabetic who controls my glucose with diet, I eat a ketogenic diet of 65-70% of my calories from fat, 25-30% from protein and a maximum 5% from carbohydrate. I will occasionally have more carbohydrate on days where I'm doing considerable exercise - such as a 100km bike ride, a 5 hour mountain hike, etc.
    I ONLY have more carbohydrate IF I'm burning it while exercising. IE: I'll eat it within 30-45 minutes prior to exercise.
    To GET ketogenic I did 2 weeks of 20-30g a day. That, combined with exercise, got me into ketosis in a few days, actually. I slowly added more carbohydrate into my diet - but found 5% on normal days was my threshold for good glycemic control. (On high-exercise days I can eat up to 10% with no issues.)
    The amount (in grams) of carb you have that keeps you in ketosis will obviously vary depending on your caloric intake.
    I normally eat up to 3,000 calories a day - as such 40g daily is about 5%. On a 5,000+ calorie day (not uncommon for me when doing endurance exercise) I may eat 120g or more...
    My daughter recently started a ketogenic diet for weight-loss. She doesn't really count calories, just eats reasonably, and keeps her carbohydrate intake about 20g a day. She lost 20lbs in the first 3 weeks.

Glucose Ketone Index For Metabolictherapy - The Trustees Of Boston College

Glucose Ketone Index for MetabolicTherapy United States Patent Application 20160078782 The ratio of blood glucose to blood ketones as a single Glucose Ketone Index value is tracked to manage metabolic treatment. This ratio identifies a metabolic state of health and has potential use for monitoring the progression of a metabolic or inflammatory disease or indication for all types of cancer, neurological disorders, and chronic inflammatory diseases. The tracking can be performed by a device or kit, such as a Glucose Ketone Index Calculator. Meidenbauer, Joshua J.

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?
    Thanks

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

[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 >>
