3 Tips For Protein Consumption On A Low Carb Or Ketogenic Diet

Check out Dr. Steve Phinney and Dr. Jeff Voleks post on how much protein you need in nutritional ketosis . Once you know how much to consume, follow the tips below to perfect your protein. #1. Watch out for protein sources that contain carbs, such as nuts Whole food like meat, fish, poultry, nuts, eggs, and cheese are quality sources of protein. One egg or an ounce of these other sources listed each contain about the same amount of proteingenerallyabout 7 grams. When choosing your protein sources, keep in mind the carbohydrates in some foods. Those carbs can add up quickly, especially with nuts, some processed meats, tofu and certain vegetarian/vegan meat substitutes (see our guide for vegans and vegetarians ). Every source counts, so choose with caution and always check the nutrition labels ! The carbohydrate content of protein-containing foods varies. Lets take nuts as an example. From macadamias with 4 grams of carbs per ounce to cashews (which are not technically a nut) with 9 grams of carbs per ounce, the type you choose matters when it comes to keeping your total carbs low. #2. Make sure youre getting enough protein Too little protein can compromise your lean tissue mass (Ho Continue reading >>

    What if I did 100g/day, or 50g/day?
    I'm trying to do this with my partner, and just due to life situation, we don't really have the ability to track religiously what we eat, and staying under 20g is not really possible, for reasons I don't want to get into now. What I'm interested in is simply whether weight loss will still occur at 100g or 50g/day, just more slowly than under 20g, or if we won't lose any weight at all.
    I'm also confused about calories- I'm really a beginner to this, but I was lead to believe that calories didn't matter, only how much carbs you ate, but I see people on this sub all the time asking "how many calories are you eating a day?" to people who say that they are having trouble losing weight on keto.
    Thanks so much for any insight, my understanding of this is really limited.

    Ketosis != weight loss
    Ketosis works for many because it makes eating at a deficit feel easier but it's not required for weight loss.
    Also most at less than 100 grams/day are transiently in ketosis.
    If you eat fewer calories than you need at 100 or 50 gram carb intake, you will lose weight. People lose weight eating at much higher carb intake. Keto is not the only way to lose weight (caveat: insulin resistance complicates this situation)
    Calories aren't all that matters, but they matter. For some they can achieve a caloric deficit eating to satiety, many others cannot and need to count calories. If you're not eating in a deficit, you will not lose weight. Calories mater.

    I've never understood why carbs are limited to 0-50g/day, with emphasis of eating under 30g, if being under 100g will still keep you at some level of ketosis. I find it frustrating at times having to limit my vegetable intake of all things simply because I require a lot of calories / day (sometimes close to 4000), which means that proportionally I would have say, 40g of carbs from vegetable instead of 20g from someone eating 2000 calories.

10 Myths Within The Low-carb Community

Low-carb diets are awesome. The research is clear that they can reverse many common, serious diseases. This includes obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and a few others. Collectively, these are the biggest health problems in the world. That being said, I've noticed a problem that has been growing steadily over the past few years in the low-carb community. A lot of dogma seems to be getting accepted and many myths that are NOT supported by science have gained foothold. This is a consequence of a phenomenon called group thinking, which is common in nutrition circles and can lead to a distorted view of the science. This is a big problem, because dogmatic and extremist views will not help the low-carb diet gain acceptance. They will simply scare intelligent people away and put them in a defensive mode instead of making them willing to observe the arguments objectively. Plus... dogmatic, unscientific views are what got us into this terrible public health mess in the first place. Let's not make that same mistake again. Low-carb diets are super healthy. The studies consistently show that they cause more weight loss and improve most risk factors for disease more than the failed l Continue reading >>

Why A Low-carb Diet Is Best For Weight Loss

Why a Low-Carb Diet Is Best for Weight Loss If you want to lose weight, you have a number of choices. The most popular is to cut calories and eat a low-fat diet. A way that’s becoming more popular, because it works much better, is to cut carbohydrates. Here we’ll take a look at scientific proof that a low-carb diet is best for weight loss. No calorie counting The biggest impediment to losing weight on a low-calorie diet is hunger. If you voluntarily reduce calories while eating the same foods, you get hungry, as is to be expected. Your body defends its weight, i.e. it has a set point, and makes you hungry if your weight moves away from the set point. On a low-carbohydrate diet, you merely cut the amount of carbohydrates in the diet, and in most studies looking at low-carb diets, the dieters ate as much as they wanted. Only carbohydrates were restricted. Cutting carbohydrates lowers levels of the hormone insulin, which signals the body to store fat, and which is responsible for setting the body weight set point. The result is nearly effortless weight loss. In the first study we’ll look at, a group of obese women were randomized to either a low-fat, low-calorie diet, or a low-c Continue reading >>
