What Is Ketosis?

"Ketosis" is a word you'll probably see when you're looking for information on diabetes or weight loss. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? That depends. Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis can become dangerous when ketones build up. High levels lead to dehydration and change the chemical balance of your blood. Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping you burn fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscle. For health Continue reading >>

    Hey also I have a question. I typically don't like to have to make breakfast in the morning and I used to have protein shakes in the morning prior to doing keto and I have done a lot of research and there's a lot of different ones out there that have recipes and different keto friendly protein powder but I am curious of which one is going to be the best and also the not cheapest but not the most expensive. Also I seen a lot of the pre-made Atkins shakes in the store and they look good with the amount of carbs and the amount of protein yet they will have one gram of sugar and we typically are trying to stay away from the sugar but I'm not sure if that one gram would really even matter on the keto diet. I would love some feedback on what's the best kind for me to get and what's the easiest and most pocket friendly type. And also on the weekends I typically have never really eaten a lot I normally have like one meal a day so I think having a shake in the morning and being able to fast the rest of the day would actually be ok for me but I'm kind of curious of what your Insight would be on that. Any help or suggestions or even recipes would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks so much

    have you tried fat in the morning? why not replace the shake with a fatty beverage...bpc? bpt or cocoa? or just eat some fat and then fast until your meal?
    i was a die hard "gotta have my protein shake" person....i'm not anymore. which is going to save me some cash lol
    there have been a lot of posts about protein being insulinogenic but especially protein powders/shakes
    IMO all Atkins products are crap....
    if you have to have shakes....
    if you're looking for a whey protein look for whey isolate over concentrate.
    Isopure is isolate with zero carbs (most flavors) and sort of a middle of the road price point

    edit: and if you do have a shake add some fat to buffer the protein. almond butter, coconut/mct oil, or the likes

The Keto Diet Is Gaining Popularity, But Is It Safe?

A new twist on extreme weight loss is catching on in some parts of the United States. It’s called the "keto diet." People promoting the diet say it uses the body’s own fat burning system to help people lose significant weight in as little as 10 days. It has also been known to help moderate the symptoms of children with epilepsy, although experts are not quite sure why it works. Proponents say the diet can produce quick weight loss and provide a person with more energy. However, critics say the diet is an unhealthy way to lose weight and in some instances it can be downright dangerous. Read More: What is the “Caveman Diet?” » What Is Ketosis? The “keto” diet is any extremely low- or no-carbohydrate diet that forces the body into a state of ketosis. Ketosis occurs when people eat a low- or no-carb diet and molecules called ketones build up in their bloodstream. Low carbohydrate levels cause blood sugar levels to drop and the body begins breaking down fat to use as energy. Ketosis is actually a mild form of ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis mostly affects people with type 1 diabetes. In fact, it is the leading cause of death of people with diabetes who are under 24 years of age. Continue reading >>
