What Does Fasting Do To Insulin?

A common thread among many dietary plans is compressing eating times. On the one hand, some plans narrow periods to two to three meals per day, with substantial time gaps in between (i.e. time-restricted feeding). Variation include other strategies that suggest eating normally for a few days, then avoiding food entirely for a few days (i.e. intermittent fasting). On the other hand, some diet plans encourage eating several meals throughout the day (i.e, “grazing”; 6-8 small meals per day). Because elevated insulin is one of the most, if not the most, relevant factor in developing insulin resistance, a highly rational strategy is to follow a dietary plan that incorporates periods of time throughout the day wherein insulin is low. This philosophy immediately suggests that frequent eating is less effective than less frequent eating—indeed, three meals per day is better than six [1]—but are fewer than three meals best of all? Maybe. Fasting’s Effectiveness Partially Depends on How It’s Done Time-restricted feeding and intermittent fasting strategically include periods of deliberate food avoidance. The evidence regarding its efficacy in improving insulin sensitivity is valid, Continue reading >>

    I have read a lot of posts and web sites about ketosis and about "weight loss," and I've read some books, as well. Based on what I've read, it seems that it would be impossible to "burn fat" (in the sense of burning body fat) without entering ketosis. If I have this right, the body burns energy supplies in these stages:
    1) alcohol (e.g. most of what is in beer)
    2) blood sugars (e.g. table sugar, most of the stuff grains break down into, fruit sugars, etc.)
    3) glycogen (stored in muscles)
    4) fat (fats that are eaten come first, followed by body fat)
    5) protein (comes last, after depletion of all other easily available stores of energy)
    It would seem logical, if this is right, that as long as your body has stores of alcohol, blood sugars, and glycogen, no body fat will be burned.
    So, to go on, if I have this right, then regardless of the kind of diet you are on, the only way to lose "weight" (in the sense of losing fat, which is the only kind of weight loss 99% of us are interested in) is to enter ketosis.
    Finally, if this is right, then any diet that promises "weight loss" (be it Ornish, the Paleo Diet, Atkins, or whatever) is promising that you will enter ketosis. If not, you will not actually "lose weight" in any sense you could desire. And it follows from this that any diet that works to any degree has no business warning people off ketosis, since it is going to occur.
    It also follows from this, in general although perhaps not in every situation, that the fewer carbs you eat, the more body fat you will burn (as long as you are in a calorie deficit).
    Is this right or wrong? Or right in some ways, but wrong in others?
    Thank you, list members...
    By the way, I bring this up in part because I have read quite a few critiques of Atkins, Paleo, and all "low carb diets," and every single one of them seems to screech about the supposed dangers of ketosis. I remember reading this back in the 1980s: "the one thing you don't want to do is enter ketosis, because then your body will be in starvation mode and will start hoarding ever single calorie," blah, blah, blah.

    I don't know that I can provide a clear and/or complete answer to that question -- so I'll leave it to others. I would like to point out though that your body usually burns a mixture of fuels. So when both glucose and circulating fats are available (as they usually are) your body doesn't use the glucose exclusively (only moving on to the fats when no further glucose is available). Instead, it uses both simultaneously.
    I hope that helps. Basically, I guess I'm trying to say that you are always "burning fat". The key to weightloss is getting your body into a state where you're burning more of it than you're storing (on average). Reducing carbohydrates tends to help many people achieve this (and certainly an excess of carbs can make it difficult or even impossible), but I don't think ketosis necessarily required (depending on one's metabolism). In the past, I've successfully "cut up" with carbs in the 350g/day range.

    My ex-husband certainly lost fat without being in ketosis. He lost about 30 pounds on a low fat diet and exercise just before we met. He was miserable and hungry the entire time, but he thought CW was the only way to go. I somehow doubt he was in ketosis eating pasta every other night.

http://www.nutritionforest.com/blood-... http://www.nutritionforest.com Nutrition Forest Blood Sugar Support Made with an superb blend of herbs and nutrients, Blood Sugar Support is formulated to help the body maintain healthy blood sugar levels that are in the normal range. The key herbs include Cinnamon, Gymnema Sylvestre, Banaba, Bitter Melon, and Guggul. Also added are effective amounts of Chromium Picolinate, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The recommended dose is one capsule three times daily with meals. While eating a sugary snack, fruit, and carbohydrates, it breaks down into glucose (blood sugar) that is important for energy in your cells. In order to get into that glucose into your cells, your body produces insulin that acts like the key unlocking the door. Excess glucose can lead to diabetes but excess insulin or insulin resistance is a problem too. Unfortunately, most peoples blood sugar is not properly balanced. If youre getting too much glucose, it leads to high blood-sugar levels, which your body cant break down and stores as fat. Ironically, not getting enough sugar can also lead to putting on extra pounds! Eating too little glucose can lead to a low blood sugar level, causing your body to go into starvation mode where it burns your lean muscle instead of the fat a double whammy to your system and your diet. Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in the normal range is not only critical for energy and mood, but also for cardiovascular, nervous system, and immune health . Since the typical diet is high in refined carbohydrates and sugars, its no wonder that such a high proportion of our population has blood sugar concerns. Hectic lifestyles, chronic stress , and genetic predispositions can also easily upset the delicate balance of physiological events that influence glucose and insulin levels. It is very important that blood sugar levels are kept as close to normal as possible. For most people with diabetes, a healthy range is between 90 and 130 mg/dl before meals and less than 180 mg/dl at one to two hours after a meal (see chart below). A doctor or health care provider can tell a person with diabetes about how and when to test blood sugar. It is helpful to keep a record of blood sugar readings several times during the day. diabetes type 2 diabetes diabetes symptoms symptoms of diabetes type 1 diabetes hypoglycemia glucose prediabetes diabetes mellitus low blood sugar blood sugar levels normal blood sugar low blood sugar symptoms hypoglycemia symptoms normal blood sugar level high blood sugar symptoms of low blood sugar glucose levels symptoms of high blood sugar blood glucose levels normal glucose levels high blood sugar symptoms glucose test glucometer how to lower blood sugar blood sugar chart juvenile diabetes symptoms of hypoglycemia fasting blood sugar blood sugar range what is normal blood sugar normal blood glucose levels diabetes test normal sugar level signs of low blood sugar normal blood sugar range blood sugar test what is hypoglycemia glucose meter high glucose levels blood sugar levels chart signs of high blood sugar causes of diabetes signs of hypoglycemia diabetes treatment normal fasting blood sugar continuous glucose monitoring blood glucose meters blood glucose sugar level lower blood sugar foods that lower blood sugar blood sugar monitor glucose level chart high glucose low blood sugar levels glucose monitor

    What does keto breath smell like?

    So this is sort of an odd question, but what does keto breath smell like? My brother and mom have been making comments lately that my breath doesn't smell so great but I'm not sure if it's keto or just something I'm eating maybe.
    And if it is keto breath, does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with it? What do you guys do? I'm just so worried lately whenever I go to have a conversation with someone that my breath smells horrendous...

  2. VitaminX

    Sounds like keto-breath to me! Some people say it resembles a metallic smell. In my case, I thought that it had more of a hamburger-meat smell. Either way, it's definately noticeable. Brushing often, using mouthwash and mints/gum are really the only ways to cope with it as far as I know.

  3. HighRevinSi

    I've never smelled it before, but you exhale or excrete acetone from the breakdown of acetoacetate (Ketone body)
    If you've ever smelled acetone it is very strong and will make you light-headed. I doubt the breath is anywhere close to that

What is INSULIN RESISTANCE? What does INSULIN RESISTANCE mean? INSULIN RESISTANCE meaning - INSULIN RESISTANCE definition - INSULIN RESISTANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Insulin resistance (IR) is a pathological condition in which cells fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin. The body produces insulin when glucose starts to be released into the bloodstream from the digestion of carbohydrates in the diet. Normally this insulin response triggers glucose being taken into body cells, to be used for energy, and inhibits the body from using fat for energy. The concentration of glucose in the blood decreases as a result, staying within the normal range even when a large amount of carbohydrates is consumed. When the body produces insulin under conditions of insulin resistance, the cells are resistant to the insulin and are unable to use it as effectively, leading to high blood sugar. Beta cells in the pancreas subsequently increase their production of insulin, further contributing to a high blood insulin level. This often remains undetected and can contribute to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or latent autoimmune diabetes of adults. Although this type of chronic insulin resistance is harmful, during acute illness it is actually a well-evolved protective mechanism. Recent investigations have revealed that insulin resistance helps to conserve the brain's glucose supply by preventing muscles from taking up excessive glucose. Insulin resistance should even be strengthened under harsh metabolic conditions such as pregnancy, during which the expanding fetal brain demands more glucose. People who develop type 2 diabetes usually pass through earlier stages of insulin resistance and prediabetes, although those often go undiagnosed. Insulin resistance is a syndrome (a set of signs and symptoms) resulting from reduced insulin action; it is also part of a larger constellation of symptoms called the metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance may also develop in patients who have recently experienced abdominal or bariatric procedures. This acute form of insulin resistance that may result post-operatively tends to increase over the short-term with sensitivity to insulin typically returning to patients after about five days.

Hyperlipid: Physiological Insulin Resistance Again

You need to get calories from somewhere, should it be from carbohydrate or fat? I started the Protons thread with the simple question: What is the difference, from the metabolic point of view, between the energy supplied by fat vs that supplied by glucose derivatives. This gives a simple picture of insulin resistance as a metabolic technique to limit caloric entry in to an individual cell under conditions of excess availability. NADH, tending to come from glucose, drives complex I to generate a decent inner mitochondrial membrane potential (delta psi). Feeding substrate in at other access points to the electron transport chain's CoQ couple, be that electron transporting flavoprotein dehydrogenase, mtG3Pdehydrogease, NADPH dehydrogenase or others, reduces that CoQ couple and promotes reverse electron flow through complex I, superoxide generation and insulin resistance. This is the insulin resistance seen so clearly when you pay folks to over-eat, assuming you feed them crapinabag. The exact mechanism of this failure of insulin to act is not clear, but large amounts of H2O2 act at several points to inhibit the activation pathway. Of course an intramitochondrial mechanism would be re Continue reading >>

    Hi all, first post here. I've been LCHF for a few weeks now, and the idea that we perhaps need to reduce the amount of fat that we are actually consuming has been told to me, so that our body actually uses the fat we have stored as it's fuel rather than all of that good fat that we are consuming first and foremost. My macros are showing my carbs as being below 20 everyday, and my fat is usually sky high also because I like to flavour my foods with cheeses and butter, but don't feel that any weight has actually been shifted (even though yes I understand that I may need to wait for this to happen).

    So I'm just wondering is when is there actually too much fat in our diet? Do I need to pull back on the added fats to my meals if I want to try and shift some weight?

    Hi Renee...welcome to the forum
    It looks like you have a great start!
    The concept behind keto is that you eat to fat to satiety. So, that eliminate the need to track and limit fat.
    Since your goal is to lose weight, you are doing the right thing by starting out with keeping your carbs at 20 gram limit. The other thing is to keep your protein levels moderate, too. The general amount is to eat 1 gram protein per kg of lean body mass. This means that you need to find out what your lean body mass is -- have you figured out what that is yet? And then with fat there is no limit...you can eat fat to satiety.
    If you provide us with a list of your typical daily meals and snacks, we can help you further with more advice.

    Hope this helps!

    If you want to loose fat you need to burn it. You do that by cutting carbs to get into ketosis, by cutting fat to use up your body-fat and by exercise to increase your number of mitochondria (which have a limited ability to burn fat thus you need as many as possibly).
