Staying In Ketosis - Should You Or Shouldn't You? - The Keto Pro - Real Food - Real Results

Staying in Ketosis should you or shouldnt you? Leading on from on our blog on the cyclical ketogenic diet , its left some of our community a little bit confused. If keto is so great for our healthspan, mind and waistline why would you want to stop? Are you best staying in ketosis?Is it OK to stop? What happens if you stop and then start again? If you do stop keto, how long should you stop for? These are all valid questions weve fielded since publishing that article- some of which were going to attempt to answer in this blog. For those that missed the memo, ketosis is about switching your body to run on fat rather than carbohydrates as its primary fuel source. This fat can come from the fats you eat, but what gets people most fired up is the potential of using other sources of fat. Like your body fat (cool) and also ketone bodies. Your body produces these naturally when youre in a fasted state. You can hack this process by heavily restricting carbohydrates, which puts the body into a fat burning state, but you still get to eat Bacon (double cool). Thats a brief 101. If you want more about ketosis and why its probably a very good thing, check this out . Ketosis is a natural process Continue reading >>

    Is it possible to stay on ketogenic diet for life-long?

    I have been on ketogenic diet for 2 weeks. It controls my blood sugar level really well. However I am not over weight. And I am worried about potential long term side effects of the diet. For example, high LDL level, steoporosis, auto immune disease, too much weight loss, vesicular stiffness. I was wondering if there is anyone in this forum has been on ketogenic diet for years? And do you experience any side effects from the diet?

    I've been on a strict ketogenic diet for 6 months, and was doing LCHF for much of the 5 months prior to that but didn't make any attempts at it being ketogenic so I may have been in and out of ketosis some during that period. I now have a blood ketone meter and remain in ketosis according to it.
    I did suffer excessive weight loss initially. I lost about 40kg (about 90 lbs.), and it ended up sending me from being very obese to being underweight. But I've always eaten very little protein, which I continued to do, plus I was doing intermittent fasting, sometimes not eating anything for days at a time. Once I stopped the intermittent fasting and concentrated on getting adequate protein, my weight went back up to my ideal weight and stabilized there. I've heard from several people that you really need to watch your protein when doing a ketogenic diet being it's easy for excess to hinder weight loss and/or increase your BG.
    I have had a few issues while doing a ketogenic diet, but not 100% sure which if any can be attributed to ketosis vs. some other factor. First off, as winter was approaching I got extremely cold all the time, especially my fingers and toes, but even my whole body was cold. I thought it might have been the caffeine I was getting as part of my ketogenic diet involves drinking lots of coffee with HWC, coconut oil, and butter. I switched to decaf and the problem pretty much went away, but I don't know if it was the caffeine, the ketosis, the massive weight loss (lack of body fat), something else, or a combination of factors.
    I've also had excessive itching and a rash. That's normal for me during the winter months, but this year it started a bit early, went longer, and was much worse than normal. I think it may very well have been my usual sensitivity to the cold dry weather, aggravated by toxins released during my rapid weight loss, and perhaps ketones being emitted through the skin. It's just recently started to clear up and the rash is gone and most of the itching.
    I got keto-breath for a week or two when I first concentrated on going keto. It was very noticeable, but disappeared after that and no issues anymore with my breath.
    This diet is very sustainable for me. I tried my whole adult life to diet to lose weight and was never successful. This time I wanted to lose weight, but my primary focus was controlling my BG, meaning reducing carbs down to a low-carb level, which caused me to gravitate naturally to a LCHF diet. For the first time I have no desire to go back to my old way of eating. I love this diet and it's completely satisfying. So I killed two birds with one stone - got my BG under control, down to non-diabetic levels, and got my weight down to ideal. Plus with the huge benefits (IMHO) of having my body use ketones rather than glucose, I'm totally sold on this way of eating for the rest of my life and have absolutely no worries about not being able to stick to my diet. I really have no strong urges for carbs anymore, and only end up going off the plan rarely due to social pressures or inadvertently eating hidden/unknown carbs.
    My LDL has gone up, but I've heard from others that usually it's benign large fluffy LDL that typically goes up when on a ketogenic diet. And my body is still adjusting. Also I've heard that LDL by itself is not a good measure of risk. So I'm not worried about it, but will keep an eye on things. I also have taken my ketogenic diet to an extreme, hitting a KR of 3.0 or higher almost everyday, and sometimes up to 4.0 or more. Not sure if eating much more fat than necessary for ketosis affected my LDL any or not. Initially my LDL dropped significantly as well as my trigs, but both increased at my last doctor's visit. I may try a more normal KR in the future while monitoring my blood ketones to verify I stay in ketosis and see if there's any difference in my BG, cholesterol, or other tests.
    I did also suffer from other typical symptoms during my keto adaptation phase. Most went away within about two weeks. But it's just been here at the 6-month mark where my BG numbers suddenly stabilized with very little change, and quite low, and overall I just feel absolutely fantastic. I feel like I'm bursting with energy and joined a gym and suddenly love running and working out whereas I hated them all my life.
    Well, I don't have years of experience with ketosis to report anything to you about that. Other than I've heard lots of other people with years of experience and not heard of anyone having any real side effects other than the things I've mentioned. However some people do find ketosis isn't for them and give up very soon. For those that feel it is working for them and stick with it, seems there's no significant side effects. But I'll let the others who've been in ketosis for longer than me speak for themselves.

How Long Can I Stay In Ketosis

Hey guys, I've done Keto in the past where I'd refeed on Saturdays, then back to Low Carb on Sundays until Friday, then refeed again Saturday. At the time I was doing strongman and I wanted to keep my strength/muscle mass. Right now I am doing Muay Thai and BJJ. I work out like 2-3 hrs a day. I just want to lose as much weight as possible and as quickly possible. I am not too worried about losing "too much weight" in a week because I know my conditioning will improve as I get skinnier. So, I am wondering how long can I go before I have to refeed? I know the brain needs glucose to function, so I am worried about going on for too long. So far I've been in Ketosis state since Tuesday morning when I woke up. The brain can do just fine on the glucose your body harvests from dietary protein, that's not what carb ups are for. Carbs ups are a reset switch for important metabolic hormones like leptin and T3. Some people do well for weeks on end in ketosis; I'm certainly not one of those people. Plus, the added physiological benefits of a weekly carb up are more than worth it. if my understanding is correct, the more bf your carrying the longer you can go before your body starts catabolizin Continue reading >>

Song on ATP and Cellular Respiration Lyrics are original, but I do not own any of the rights to the music in this song. Original song from Taylor Swift music Lyrics: So this songs about cellular respiration Cells use it to make energy, for themselves We get the energy from our friend, glucose 6C H12 O6, Okay. Three stages were gonna talk about them Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle, Electron Transport Chain NADH, FADH2, Acetyl CoA And of course, it all produces ATP our cells use it for all of their energy respiration makes potential energy all in the form of ATP Glycolysis starts us off in the cytoplasm With Glu, 2 ATP &NAD (plus) Glucose splits, two pyruvate, with 4 new ATPs Yield just two cuz we invested two ATPs our cells use it for all of their energy respiration makes potential energy all in the form of ATP next steps intermediary make Acetyl CoA in the intermembrane space no ATP here In mitochondrial matrix The Krebs cycle happens Two ATP made here CO2 is waste Nextone happens in the cristae ETC coupled to ATP Synthase ATP produced all over the place (~28) ATPs our cells use it for all of their energy anaerobic is bad at making many of the molecule ATP ATP our cells use it for all of their energy exergonic so it produces naturally oh all this ATP

Is It Safe To Stay In Ketosis Indefinitely?

There seems to be a lot of focus on the state of Ketosis these days, with many people asking the same questions: Am I in ketosis? How many carbs does it take to get thrown out of ketosis? What should I do if the Ketostix aren't showing that I'm in ketosis anymore? I'm only eating 20 carbs, why am I not in ketosis? Is it safe to stay in ketosis indefinitely? And while some of these questions are certainly important, like just how safe of a diet is the Atkins Diet long-term, overall it seems that the low-carb community is putting too much emphasis on the process of ketosis and not enough focus on nutrition. With so many different versions of Atkins out there, and people still doing all of them, I don't see the questions going away anytime soon. With that in mind, I thought I'd take a moment and do a post on my own personal views about ketosis and its long-term safety. Thoughts on Ketone Testing Strips In the 70s, the whole Atkins' diet was built up around the idea of ketosis being the revolutionary miracle to save you from obesity. Like everyone else, I rushed out to the drug store and bought myself a bottle of ketone testing strips -- Ketostix they called them back then. These keton Continue reading >>
