8 Things To Avoid On A Keto Diet

There are many guides telling you what to eat and drink on a keto diet. It can however sometimes be good to also know what to not eat or drink on a keto diet. Since that food that are good for a keto diet are foods that are very high in fat and low on carbohydrates the opposite should therefor in general be avoided. That means food that is low in fat and high in carbohydrates. But there are also some things that can be hard to know if they are good for you or not. Diet soda Diet soda might seem like something that is good to drink at a low carb diet since they do not contain any sugar or carbs. However there is a danger with these and that is the artificial sweeteners that are used as replacement for the sugar. Everyone’s bodies react differently to these sugar substitutes. Some people can drink diet soda without any problem when on a keto diet and others can not have a single glass of it without interrupting their diet and their ketosis. Low-carb sweets There are many different low carb sweets out there that claim they are good for a low carb diet. However most of these often contain processed food and also in many cases a relative high amount of carbohydrates. It does not seem 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.

The Paleo Guide To Ketosis

Ketosis is a word that gets tossed around a lot within the Paleo community – to some, it’s a magical weight-loss formula, to others, it’s a way of life, and to others it’s just asking for adrenal fatigue. But understanding what ketosis really is (not just what it does), and the physical causes and consequences of a fat-fueled metabolism can help you make an informed decision about the best diet for your particular lifestyle, ketogenic or not. Ketosis is essentially a metabolic state in which the body primarily relies on fat for energy. Biologically, the human body is a very adaptable machine that can run on a variety of different fuels, but on a carb-heavy Western diet, the primary source of energy is glucose. If glucose is available, the body will use it first, since it’s the quickest to metabolize. So on the standard American diet, your metabolism will be primarily geared towards burning carbohydrates (glucose) for fuel. In ketosis, it’s just the opposite: the body primarily relies on ketones, rather than glucose. To understand how this works, it’s important to understand that some organs in the body (especially the brain) require a base amount of glucose to keep fu Continue reading >>

    Today I learned about ketosis.
    Yesterday, Day 15 for me, I had a lady doctor's appointment wherein they collected a urine sample. My ketones were sky high and prompted my doctor -- who I had never seen before -- to tell me he didn't think I was eating well. I laughed, insisted that I eat quite well, and asked him to explain his concern more fully. He explained that ketones indicate I am passing fat, that I'm not eating well, starving. He insisted that I grab a fruit juice on the way home, push fluids the rest of the night, and follow up with my GP. Let me tell you, that much glucose at once felt weird, but who was I to argue with his quite insistent orders?
    After some Google-fu, I found out that that's not exactly what ketones are, or what high ketones in urine means, but close. They're a byproduct of my body burning fat for energy instead of glucose. They are a warning sign if you're a Type I diabetic (I'm not) or have liver issues (I don't know of any) and can be a tell-tale sign of anorexia or starvation or fasting (uh, no), but for folks on low-carb, high-fat diets, they more often indicate that your metabolism has shifted from processing glucose to processing fat for fuel.
    On top of the high ketone level in my urine, I felt terrible all day long. I couldn't sleep the night before, had another base-of-the-neck migraine-like headache, had the chills, and finally vomited around 3am. I chalked it up to the flu or the issue that had brought me to my doctor to begin with, but after further research, I'm wondering if I might actually be transitioning to a ketogenic metabolism and have a touch of the "ketosis flu".
    I'm not much of an athlete these days, and ketosis certainly isn't the goal of my Whole30. I did some quick research on this forum and saw that other ladies -- mainly pregnant ones -- had doctors who were concerned with high ketones while they were Whole30ing. They increased their caloric intake via more starches. So I also decided to tweak my diet even more this round and increase my starch (yams, bananas, squash, etc.) intake and see how I feel.
    I'm seeing my GP next week -- also for the first time -- and I'd like to be able to ask some pointed questions about the paleo diet and ketosis and ketoacidosis, as I'm sure another urinalysis will reveal the same high ketone levels and probably bring similar concerns. I've been strict paleo since 2011, am 114 pounds, 5'4", and have a very low body fat -- I'm not opposed to remaining in ketosis, but am concerned that I don't have a ton of fat on my frame to burn and want to monitor my diet and health responsibly.
    Has anyone else -- especially ladies -- had high ketone levels in their urine? Any precautions I should be aware of? Any tweaks to a Whole30 you'd recommend?

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

Understanding A High-fat Ketogenic Diet—and Is It Right For You?

While food trends come and go, high-fat diets—lauded for their weight-loss potential and brain-function benefits—have proven to have some staying power. Functional medicine M.D. Sara Gottfried contributes frequently to goop on the topic of weight-loss resistance. She’s spent the past two years rigorously studying the ketogenic diet—high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein. Named for ketones, which Gottfried explains are “the energy source made by the body when there’s not enough carbohydrates to be burned for energy demand,” the goal of the diet is to get the body to burn fat instead of sugar. Gottfried recommends the keto diet (as it’s commonly called) to help with a range of brain and focus issues—she finds ketones to be “very efficient fuel for the brain”; she also says it works well for some patients (not all) who want to lose weight but have trouble kicking sugar cravings. We talked to her about who the keto diet is right for (and whom, or when, it isn’t); the nutritional ins and outs of mastering it; and which keto-friendly meals are healthy for practically everyone, regardless of what diet we do (or don’t) practice.
