The Keto Diet: "my Little Secret Lies In Avocado, Eggs And Coconut Oil" - Diet Doctor

Eshareturi has been able to reverse her type 2 diabetes using only a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting . Fantastic! In February of this year, the 13th to be precise, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with a blood glucose of 267 mg/dl (15 mmol/L). My life changed, I was placed on glucophage twice a day. I took it for two weeks and was supposed to see my doctor but my blood glucose remained at 181 mg/dl (10 mmol/L). Instead of going to the hospital, I stumbled upon your post on Facebook, got to the Diet Doctor site and asked for a meal plan, which was ketogenic. That was the beginning of my journey. Six days later, I checked my fasting blood glucose it was 128 mg/dl (7.1 mmol/L), not only that, I was 3 kg (7 lbs) lighter. I was amazed. Two weeks later, I did another test but this time my fasting blood sugar was 145 mg/dl (8.1 mmol/L). I knew I was doing something wrong, that I figured out was my protein intake, I resolved to decrease my protein and add intermittent fasting with a 16:8 window. I was able to achieve this without drugs, just the keto diet and intermittent fasting. At the end of three weeks, my fasting blood sugar was 82 mg/dl (4.5 mmol/L). As of today fasting Continue reading >>

    Too much protein can kick you out of ketosis

    Quote from Lyle McDonald - The Ketogenic Diet:
    -To briefly recap, during the first weeks of ketosis, approximately 75 grams of glucose must
    be produced (the other 18 grams of glucose coming from the conversion of glycerol to glucose) to
    satisfy the brain�s requirements of ~100 grams of glucose per day. After approximately 3 weeks
    of ketosis, the brain�s glucose requirements drop to approximately 40 grams of glucose. Of this,
    18 grams are derived from the conversion of glycerol, leaving 25 grams of glucose to be made
    from protein.
    Since 58% of all dietary protein will appear in the bloodstream as glucose (3), we can
    determine how much dietary protein is required by looking at different protein intakes and how
    much glucose is produced.
    Protein intake and grams of glucose produced *
    Protein intake (grams) converted into Glucose (grams)
    50---> 27
    100-----> 58
    * Assuming a 58% conversion rate
    Summery: dieters should consume zero Carbs on 150g protein diet since protein will provide 87g glucose by process called gluconeogenesis and other glucose will come from fat burning or you should lower protein intake and increase glucose intake from food.

    If you do that, you need to eat more protein. Better to eat a few carbs to compensate for the protein loss.
    Worth a read: How Many Carbohydrates Do You Need?

    Originally Posted by Lyle
    Early research into the topic of starvation and low-carbohydrate dieting found that as few as 15 grams of carbohydrates per day can limit nitrogen loss in the body. And raising carbohydrate intake to 50 grams per day severely limits the need for the body to use amino acids for gluoconeogenesis (which is why I suggested setting daily carbs on the low-carb days of The Ultimate Diet 2.0 at 50 grams).
    This occurs via at least two mechanisms:
    1. The increased carb intake maintains blood glucose and insulin at a higher level (inhibiting cortisol release).
    2. The carbohydrate provides glucose for the brain, limiting the need to break down body protein.
    Basically, in the context of dieting, dieters can either jack up dietary protein to cover the increased carbohydrate requirements of dieting or simply eat slightly more carbohydrates to provide them directly. Both have the same end-result. 15-50 grams per day limits the body’s need to break down protein and will allow protein requirements to be set lower than a diet providing essentially zero carbohydrates per day.
    So, summing up mid-article, the absolute requirement for carbohydrates is zero grams per day. However, depending on protein intake, a practical minimum for carbs lies between 50 grams/day (if someone functions well in ketosis) to 100-120 grams per day (if they don’t function well in ketosis). Let me mention very specifically that I’m not suggesting those numbers are a recommended level, I’m simply using them to represent a practical minimum value.

    Both approaches can work though, as evidenced by the RFL diet he has. Personally, I like the ability to eat a more varied diet when I want.

    Thnx its true worth reading, my protein intake at 125g and my carbs at 10g which supply the body with 87g glucose and the deficient glucose comes from burned fat.

If you're watching your waistline, here are the best low-carbohydrate foods to help keep the fat off. Add them to your shopping list! Carbohydrates have long been a gray area for the physique-minded individual. On the one hand, you need some carbs in your diet to provide the energy necessary to fuel an intense workout. Go overboard, however, and you can easily end up with a midsection that's a few cans short of a six-pack. Low energy, a gut, and lackluster muscle growth are telltale signs that you may have become too chummy with pasta, cereal, and other carb-heavy grub. And without question, any stroll through the supermarket can be tantamount to starch madness as you try to steer your cart away from the deluge of foods saturated with refined carbs and simple sugars at the expense of muscle-building protein. The key to winning the war on flab is knowing where to turn to for low-carbohydrate foods that are still chockfull of what your transforming physique needsnamely protein, vital minerals and vitamins, and less hazardous unrefined complex carbs.

6 Indulgent Foods That Are Low-carb Friendly

6 Indulgent Foods That Are Low-Carb Friendly Written by Kris Gunnars, BSc on August 5, 2014 One of the best things about it, is that people usually don't need to count calories. As long as carbs are kept low, appetite tends to go down. This causes people to automatically restrict calories, without having to consciously regulate their food intake. This simple method is proven to lead to significant weight loss... about 2-3 times as much as a calorie restricted low-fat diet ( 1 , 2 , 3 ). Interestingly, there are numerous incredibly satisfying low-carb friendly foods that most people would only consider an occasional indulgence. These foods can be eaten regularly on a low-carb diet, until fullness, while still reaping all of the metabolic benefits . Some of these foods are even very healthy, at least in the context of a low-carb diet (although adding them on top of a high-carb diet could be a problem). Here are 6 "indulgent" foods that are low-carb/keto friendly. Then it was demonized for being high in saturated fat and people started eating margarine instead. Well... butter has been making a comeback as a health food, especially among low-carbers. Just make sure to choose quality, Continue reading >>

    Hello guys. Long time lurker, first time poster. Wanting to cosplay for an anime convention is what spurred me on to actually attempt keto after reading about it for a while. I've been doing it for almost two months with my brother and we've both lost around 22 pounds.
    We combined IF with keto and we only eat once a day around 6-7 in the evening. Lots of heavy cream, butter and olive oil fried meat and spinach with cheese are constituents of our daily intake. However, recently I had been worrying that we're not getting a lot of vitamins/minerals that we might need, so around 2 weeks ago I bought One a Day for Men (those vitamin supplements), and I have been taking them with dinner.
    I watched some seminars/presentations of Peter Attia about the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids, and I don't really get to eat fish that often, so yesterday I bought some fish oil supplements to go along with my vitamin supplements.
    However, my brother complains that we're taking too many pills and jokes (morbidly) about how it's like we have a serious illness and are being forced to take pills.
    How do fellow ketoers handle the lack of some nutrients in the diet? Do some of you take multivitamins? Are my apprehensions valid or do they have no basis? Is it okay for me to take fish oil and one a day together with meals, or is that too many supplements?
    tl;dr Taking multivitamins and fish oil with meals, is that okay?

  2. midnightreign

    Daily multivitamin consumer here - I probably have some very expensive urine, but I figure it's worth it to make sure I'm not missing out on some critical macro/micro nutrients.
    I also take an Omega 3 supplement once daily, because while I like fish, I don't like mercury and so don't consume tons of seafood.

  3. materhern

    Yeah, no problems with taking supplements. I take a ton for various reasons.
    Multivitamin even before keto.
    Fish oil to raise good cholesterol as for some reason I can't keep it high enough.
    Vitamin C for health with allergies.
    B-complex, inositol, potassium, magnesium, l-carnitine, and chromium piccolinate.

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.
    (i am a diabetic, not a medical professional)


    Your response is private.

    Are you satisfied with this answer?

    I'm not a doctor, but from what I know of diabetic conditions, both of these can be dangerous, and especially if they occur together (especially since ketosis would probably indicate serious hypoglycemia).
