Weight Loss And The Ketogenic Diet

It’s pretty obvious the well-known advice to “eat less, move more” for losing weight is not working for most people — if any. In fact, at least ⅔ of dieters who lose weight not only gain it back, but often do so with some extra weight. Yikes. So the question is, can there be a real solution to this problem? There just might be, and it’s a little-known process that more and more people are catching on to: ketosis for weight loss. Ketosis on a low-carb, ketogenic diet works because it helps suppress your appetite unlike other ways of eating. Not only that, it can also support increased focus and mental clarity. Imagine no longer obsessing about food or worrying about eating too much because your appetite is just… under control. No more counting calories! No more cravings. No more crazy amounts of exercise. Just satiety and a regulated appetite. Not only that, a ketogenic diet might even be able to help you lose weight faster than other methods — while keeping the weight off. If this idea appeals to you (and come on, how could it not?), you might be ready to try a ketogenic diet for weight loss. But you’re still left with some questions, so let’s cover all of the d Continue reading >>

    Keto while nursing?

    Hey fitnessman, is it a good idea to try a keto diet while nursing?, I have a friend that just had a baby and she would like to try keto to lose the "baby" fat. thanks for your help

    I am not fitnessman, and probably will get jumped on for this, but I would say DEFINETLY NOT!!!!! Keto is a GREAT fat loss program, but it does deny you of some vitamins and minerals, even if you do take multi-vitamins and eat vegis, that your baby MUST have. I would tell her just to eat healthy and reasonable proportions and to exercise. That baby is taking a LOT out of her that she doesnt realize. Shoot, nursing a baby burns about 500 calories extra a day for women. I learned a lot about breast feeding because my wife just had a baby and we went to all these pre-baby classes.

    That I'd jump you on this one
    A quick story. Well over 5 years ago the first I even heard of a high fat diet was from my wife. Being a nutritionist, I thought the diet was just plain silly. Also being a diet researcher at jeart, I set out to prove that the crap she trying was wrong.
    Well guess who was wrong?....ME! 5 years later the rest is hisorty. I have become a ketogenic diet guru to many. Just a story for ya all.
    Now on with the meat. All of my children have been breast fed. So Survivn, kudos to your friend for breasting! That is how babies were designed to eat. There still are 100's of componetes in breast milk that researchers cant even identify.
    My wife loves the Ketogenic lifestlye. While pregnant she does not do the diet due to such really odd cravings(nor would I stand in her way). Our last two children had been fed from her while being on the diet. She has found that the milk production is greater and has less trouble expressing milk than with the older ones, when she was on a carb based diet.
    The big key here while breast feeding(with any diet) is to take into account that more calories are needed for the milk production. How many really depends on metabolism. For my wife it works out to 13 or so per pound of TOTAL bodyweight.
    She will get plently of nutrients from the green veggies and low GI fruits in the diet.
    So yes, it is fine to breast feed on a ketogenic diet. You MUST eat greens and some low GI fruits.
    Also keep in mind that the female body will not release fat very well while breast feeding. HOWEVER the over all health and well being of the mother and baby will be much better. Not to fret the slow fat loss, because after the baby is weened(about 18 months) her metabolism will be already amped and ready to go!
    I have #6 coming in Dec. I can guarantee you my wife will be on a ketogenic diet. She is already looking forward to it!
    Have her pick up Protein Powers Lifesplan by the Eades doctors, this is a perfect diet for a lactating female.
