How Is Ketosis Diagnosed?

A ketosis is the state of the body where the liver releases ketone bodies (acids) which are produced in the metabolism of fat, occurring when the body is fasting. A temporary state of starvation and ketosis is harmless for the normal functioning body with it’s buffering systems. In the presence of Diabetes Mellitus type one however, where the body can’t retrieve glucose from the blood stream, an uncontrolled ketosis lead to rapid, if untreated lethal, decrease in pH. A high level of ketones in your body will lead to a distinct acetone smell of your breath. Traces of ketones can be spotted in the urine via dipstick testing. You can get exact levels of ketones in your bloodstream via specific testing for “blood ketones”, nowadays often available even in ambulances. Furthermore a blood gas is valuable to determine pH level and possible electrolyte imbalance. Continue reading >>

    Body ache from Keto.

    Just wondering, I asked this question elsewhere, but no one has answered it. I'm about 5 days into my Keto diet and my body has a constant ache. It's like I've been working out, but it's been a week since I could get to the gym so I decided I'd adjust to the new diet. I'm consuming around 1600 calories a day. I weigh 262, I'm 6'3-6'4. If someone could give me some advice it would be great.

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 a

What Is A Ketogenic Diet?

Alright, here’s what the ketogenic diet (often referred to as “keto”) is and the basics of how to follow it. What is the ketogenic diet? For those who don’t know the ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high fat diet (LCHF) with many health benefits. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain. Benefits: Ketogenic diets generally cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased level of ketones provide the numerous cited health benefits. Ketogenic benefits include: Fighting diabetes Epilepsy control Alzheimer’s disease Certain cancers Cognitive performance High blood pressure control Satiety Weight/fat loss Reduced cholesterol levels The most obvious and commonly cited benefits is the decreased insulin levels. This is why fasting becomes a great solution to people’s type 2 diabetes, cushing’s disease and many other metabolic diseases. Fasting as well as the Continue reading >>

    Sorry if this question has been asked a million times, but the search didn't get me what I was looking for.
    I've been on a TKD for 2 days now, and I'm not quite sure if I'm doing all of this correctly. I can't really monitor my diet down to the calorie due to my job, but I'm using common knowledge to steer clear of carbs (bread, rice, beans, fruit, etc, etc). I'm estimating that I've been consuming around 40-50 carbs a day with the bulk of it coming from my post-workout shake.
    From you keto pros out there, do you think I can achieve ketosis with my current carb intake, or should I restrict carbs even further? I'm starting to feel like I should restrict carbs totally save for my carb up day at the end of the week ala the CKD.
    All I all I got the basics down, but I think I need a little more guidance. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I've had a look at my tongue today and its furry and yellow! Not pleasant! Is this anything to worry about? Or just a sign of ketosis? I'm on day 5 so hopefully in ketosis now? Do you think this causing the yellow fur? I'm worried!

  2. Lexie_dog

    Its just the ketosis/lack of debridement that you would get during normal eating.
    Invest in a tongue scraper and in the meantime get in there with the toothbrush (remember and get right to the back because thats where the really smelly stuff hides.)

  3. liz1987

    Thanks Lexie,
    I'm quite excited about the first sign of ketosis (even if it is a little gross!). Does anyone know whether my yellow tongue will be with me the whole time I'm doing SS? Or will it go?
