What's The Maximum Carbs On Ketogenic Diet?

Justin's answer here is pretty good. I would add that I've seen the standard recommendation as less than 40g of carbs per day. Ketosis is achievable on more carbs, as Justin points out, but is dependent on your activity level. The more active you are, the more carbohydrates you can consume while staying in Ketosis, or staying in Ketosis most of the time. To effectively get into Ketosis, you need to reduce both carbohydrate and protein intake, less your body simply use your dietary protein to create glycogen through gluconeogenesis. In other words, you can drop your carbs to 0-20 grams, but if you're consuming too much protein, you still won't get into ketosis. How much protein is too much is going to depend on how much you weigh, how messed up your metabolism is, and how active you are. Maybe try for less than 80g protein a day, and see how that works out. I would suggest eating only fatty sources of protein, e.g., eggs, 80 or 85% grass fed beef, wild caught salmon and sardines, and full fat cheese. I would also suggest that you stick to leafy and cruciferous vegetables (spinach, kale, swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts are some of my favorites) which tend to b Continue reading >>

    Hello,
    I've been on a Keto diet now for nine weeks. I am not diabetic. I'd just like to burn off some stomach fat. That said, I am simply starving at 20g of carbs per day. I've been using keto sticks to measure my ketosis levels (and yes I am aware that these sticks may not be the most accurate testing measure, but I'm not going to get a blood analysis every week). If I go beyond 20g per day, according to the keto stick results, I get thrown out of ketosis. How on earth does one stay at or below 20g of carbs per day? I should also say, prior to this diet, I was rarely a meat eater. I don't like bacon (pork or chicken varieties). Chicken and fish was always my choice.
    Prior to every meal I drink an 8oz glass of water with apple cider vinegar. I read this helps with digestion. I also drink lemon water throughout the day.
    Vegetables such as spinach or broccoli take my stomach forever to breakdown. I'm constantly bloated.
    Honestly, this has been a living Hell. What am I doing wrong?
    Typical day...
    Breakfast: Three AA large eggs and three slices of bacon.
    Lunch: Three cups of spinach. A half pound of ground beef with taco seasoning mix. Two tbsp of sour cream.
    Dinner. Three cups of spinach. Five ounces of chicken. One avocado. One roma tomato.
    Snacks are usually mozzarella or cheddar cheese sticks.

    Thanks,
    K

    This is going to be counterintuitive, but try going zero carb. Decide on a period of time like 3 weeks or 30 days, and eat no plant material at all for that period, then reassess. Some people find zero carb much easier to do than trying to stay very low carb. Figure you are going to est 2-3 times your current amount of meat. Eat all you want whenever you are hungry, but strictly from the animal kingdom. As much as you want of meat, fish, eggs. You can also have small amounts of cream, and full fat cheese, but view them as sides to meat, fish, or eggs.

  3. Jeff

    Fat to satiety. If you're hungry, add more fat. It's a wonderful way to deal with hunger pangs. I eat salami with cream cheese until I feel full. More bacon, butter with your avocado, or fatty cheeses. Don't be afraid to add more fat! Wishing you well.

5 Most Common Low-carb Mistakes (and How To Avoid Them)

A few months ago, I read a book called The Art and Science of Low-Carbohydrate Living. The authors are two of the world's leading researchers on low-carb diets. Dr. Jeff S. Volek is a Registered Dietitian and Dr. Stephen D. Phinney is a medical doctor. These guys have performed many studies and have treated thousands of patients with a low-carb diet. According to them, there are many stumbling blocks that people tend to run into, which can lead to adverse effects and suboptimal results. To get into full-blown ketosis and reap all the metabolic benefits of low-carb, merely cutting back on the carbs isn't enough. If you haven't gotten the results you expected on a low-carb diet, then perhaps you were doing one of these 5 common mistakes. There is no clear definition of exactly what constitutes a "low carb diet." Some would call anything under 100-150 grams per day low-carb, which is definitely a lot less than the standard Western diet. A lot of people could get awesome results within this carbohydrate range, as long as they ate real, unprocessed foods. But if you want to get into ketosis, with plenty of ketoness flooding your bloodstream to supply your brain with an efficient source Continue reading >>

    I seeing some people saying they try not to eat any carbs!
    Is there a benefit to this? If the goal is just to put your body into / stay in ketosis then does it matter what your carb intake is as long as you maintain a state of ketosis?
    I've been trying to keep my carbs to less than 20g / day, but when I was eating ~40g / day I was still able to stay in ketosis.
    Is there any advantage of me staying at less than 20g carbs if I can still stay in Ketosis ~ 40g's?

  2. [deleted]

    On the other hand. If I go below 20 carbs I go into deep ketosis and can't eat enough. Above 20 I eat about 1500 cal below 20 I struggle to eat more then 700 cal. Before ketosis I'd eat 3-5k calories a day. Isn't ketosis grand :-)

  3. Monkeyslim

    No. Some few people, mostly athletes, can eat up to about a 100g carbs. As long as you feel good, and are keeping calories in the range to lose if that's your goal, then consider yourself very fortunate. Wish I could have over 20g.

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

The Keto Diet: A Low-carb Approach To Fat Loss

Along with the Atkins diet and the South Beach diet, individuals who are interested in low carbohydrate approaches to dieting will likely want to look into the Keto Diet. Popular among many who are trying to maintain blood sugar levels and lose body fat, the main premise of this diet is, 'eat fat to lose fat'. So How Does It Work? The idea of the ketone diet is to get your body into a process called Ketosis where you stop burning carbohydrates as fuel and instead turn to the burning of what are known as ketones. This will occur when you bring your carbohydrate levels to around 50 grams per day or lower. Many keto activists advise that number to be 30 grams of carbohydrates but most individuals can still maintain ketosis while consuming the 50 grams and this allows for a little more leeway in the diet since you can increase the consumption of vegetables and a variety of flavoring's that contain a few grams of carbohydrates. TKD Or CKD Usually people who are involved with exercise will follow either a TKD (targeted keto diet) or a CKD (cyclical keto diet). TKD A TKD is one where you will eat carbohydrates right before and right after your workouts. This is the best bet for those who Continue reading >>
