How Long Does It Take To Lose Weight In Ketosis

If you're not already using a nutrition app, you might want to consider downloading one--or two. New York City-based nutritionist Kristen Carlucci tells Health.com that nutrition apps are some of the best tools to reach and sustain your long-term health goals. Carlucci suggests MyFitnessPal for its impressive built-in food library. But when you're travelling, healthy fare is much harder to come by. That's why Health's contributing nutrition editor Cynthia Sass loves Food Tripping, an app that guides you towards healthier eateries along your route. As for labels, nutrition labels are meant to demystify products, but we often find ourselves more confused by them. No longer. For an easy fix, the Fooducate app lets you scan nutrition labels for a quick assessment of how healthy something really is. Finally, although grocery stores have become more accommodating to shoppers with food allergies, it can still be difficult to find products that fit your specific needs. For those with dietary restrictions, the app Ingredient quickly identifies products within your diet plan. Just apply a filter for your specific allergy, and the app will locate those gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free, nut-free, or dairy-free foods in nearby stores. http://www.health.com/nutrition/best-... http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Is The Ketogenic Diet Right For You? Nutritionists Weigh In

You may be hearing a lot about the ketogenic diet as a way to slim down while noshing on butter and heavy cream. This way of eating is suddenly hot among venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, who believe it will help them live longer and healthier, CNBC reports. Some praise the high-fat/ultra low-carb plan for helping them to lose weight and have energy all day long. Other advocates say it finally helped them to get control of their body. How does it work and could it help you? We asked Bonnie Taub-Dix, a registered dietitian nutritionist and author of “Read It Before You Eat It”; and Keri Glassman, nutritionist, registered dietitian and TODAY Tastemaker. To start with, both said they would never advise the ketogenic diet for weight loss. “Cutting out carbs is usually an invitation to overeat them at another point,” Taub-Dix said. “For a diet where you’re looking to lose weight, look good and feel good… I would not recommend a diet like this.” “For safe and effective weight loss, the carb reduction is too extreme,” Glassman added.

    > When do you start to lose weight only after you are in ketosis?

    Hi,
    It took me 5 days to get into ketosis (waaaay longer than I anticipated). I'm assuming I had a lot of built up carbs in my system before I started on my diet. I haven't lost any weight. In fact, I've gained 3 lbs! I'm wondering if the weight will start to come off now that I'm in ketosis. Is that when it begins? Also, I am really starving without the carbs, so I'm eating a lot more than I usually would. Can I be gaining weight from this diet??
    Thanks!

    Don't Panic!!
    It entirely depends not only on how much you are eating, but what type of food whether or not you could gain weight.
    I notice that anything high in salt makes me retain water. Cheese, cured meats, salted pork rinds, pickles. These are Atkins friendly and will not hinder ketosis per se, but may cause you to retain water. Think back over the last 5 days and remember if you have eaten these foods or anything else, such as broth which may be high in salt.( Read labels for hidden salt/sodium.)If so, you may be losing fat while retaining water and it could register on the scale as a gain. When you stop eating the hidden salt, it may be a day or two before you experience your body flushing all that extra water quickly and then finally your scale will show a loss.
    Another common error is relying a lot on artificially sweetened products, which a lot of LCers have noticed can stall their weight loss. Diet soda is notorious, so are Atkins bars. Not everybody has a problem with these things, but you may find out that you do.
    Those are just the possibilities that come to my mind, I'm sure other seasoned LCers can think of other things. Don't ditch the diet, you've barely started and there are bound to be setbacks along the way.
    Meanwhile, if you are extra hungry, perhaps you could post an example of a day or two of your menu so some of the more sophisticated LCers can help you spot trouble?
    Good luck!

How Long Does It Take To Lose Weight On The Lchf Diet?

I just wanted to talk a little bit about what you can expect when it comes to weight loss on a low-carb, high-fat diet. If you’re like me, when I first started reading about eating low carb, I got very excited about these stories of weight loss just seeming to happen as if by magic, with the pounds falling off more quickly than you can count. However when I started eating low carb – that didn’t happen for me. Not straight away anyway. It took a fair bit of adjusting and reading and trial and error before I found my sweet spot and really got to grips with what was happening with my body. Here are a few of the main points I learned. If you’re experiencing weight loss stalls, or you just want to know what to expect, hopefully, this will help you. You Really Have to Watch Your Protein Intake Low carb, high-fat diets that are geared around getting you into a fat-burning state must include only moderate amounts of protein. When I first started, I used the 0.8g of protein per pound of lean muscle calculation. This put me at about 100g of protein/ day. My weight loss didn’t start until I tinkered with this and dropped my daily intake of protein to 45-55g per day. At the time I wa Continue reading >>

Keep Yourself In Ketosis

When talking about a Grain Brain lifestyle, and the very similar ketogenic diet, it’s frequently mentioned that we are aiming to keep our bodies in ketosis. However, if you’re new to my work, it may be that you’re not exactly sure what ketosis is, or why we should be worrying about getting our body into this state. Allow me to explain. Ketones are a special type of fat that can stimulate the pathways that enhance the growth of new neural networks in the brain. A ketogenic diet is one that is high in fats, and this diet has been a tool of researchers for years, used notably in a 2005 study on Parkinson’s patients finding an improvement in symptoms after just 28 days. The improvements were on par with those made possible via medication and brain surgery. Other research has shown the ketogenic diet to be remarkably effective in treating some forms of epilepsy, and even brain tumors. Ketones do more than just that though. They increase glutathione, a powerful, brain-protective antioxidant. Ketones facilitate the production of mitochondria, one of the most important actors in the coordinated production that is the human body. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Our bodies Continue reading >>

    I'm on Day 20. Lost 7.5lbs, but since then has gained back 4lbs! I have kept my carbs below 20 but it's likely my calories are a little too high for me. I stopped logging the last 5 days cause I have been eating the same thing. Just wondering if I should test for ketosis by blpod to make sure I am in it and on my way for being fat adapted?? How long does it take to be fat adapted? I know it's okay to be a slow loser and I'm okay with that BUY just want to be sure I am on the right path. Tks!!!

  2. ketohealthclub

    Hi!! Congratulations! A little info: a ketogenic way of eating isn't a weight loss diet. It's a method of metabolic repair. As your metabolism heals, metabolic issues like Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, PCOS, some hormone-driven cancers and other metabolic issues are decreased and even reversed. Weight loss is a happy side effect of all this healing.
    When you use up your glycogen stores, which hold a lot of water, you'll see an initial whoosh of weight loss. The more water you've been holding, the greater that whoosh can be. Getting rid of that excess water weight is pretty awesome. Next, your body begins to adapt to burning ketones instead of glucose. Focusing on becoming fat adapted is better than focusing on weight loss. The weight will happen. It can take up to three week or up to three months (estimates) to become fat adapted. I think it took me about three months. Exercising helps teach your body to burn fat as fuel, by the way.

    It was around fat adaption time that I really focused on weight loss more, and started Intermittent fasting. Now I'm starting to add exercise. It's a journey!!

  3. Christopher_John_How

    Fat adaption is different for everybody and there is no straight forward answer. Unfortunately.
    If one is rather overweight, then perhaps inevitably there will be weight loss plateaus
    And this can be related to stress response and an evolutionary hang up
    But as your body figures out what's going on, weight loss will resume as normal with perhaps more plateaus until you reach your body's natural intended weight.
    Bear in mind that the weight you have in mind may not match what your body want.

    Well done though Joni for sticking with it. A lot of people don't get this far. Keep on trucking!! Beep beep!
