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 a

Ketogenic Diet And Insulin Resistance

Insulin is a fat storing blood sugar regulating master hormone that is involved in multiple body functions beyond its metabolic role. A few examples include triglyceride and fat synthesis, electrolyte balance of sodium and potassium, feeding behaviors and cognitive and emotional brain function. Insulin resistance(IR),might also known as syndrome X or metabolic syndrome, is a cluster of symptoms (weight gain, cravings and increased appetite, skin tags, gum disease, low energy) and health risk factors (abnormal, not necessarily high, blood sugar, high triglycerides and cholesterol, polycystic ovarian syndrome, high blood pressure) all resulting from abnormal insulin function. What is important to know is that just like diabetes, with IR there may be no symptoms at all. Insulin resistance is anearly-stage in Type 2 diabetes but not everyone with IR will develop diabetes. Fifty percentof those with essential hypertension areinsulinresistant. ( 1 ). How Many People Are Affected by Insulin Resistance? IR is more common than you think, in the United States, an estimated 60 to 70 million individuals are affected by insulin resistance, thats 1 out of 4 people. More than 40% of individuals Continue reading >>

    Does my insulin resistance factor into whether or not I would lose fat faster on a ketogenic diet vs one that's balanced and simply reduces calories? I don't have any serious discipline problems while dieting and I have very adaptive lifestyle requirements, so if it's all the same, and keto is just a diet that's more satiating and easier to stick to, I'd rather just go with an otherwise 'normal' diet.
    But I have identifiably poor insulin resistance. I feel bloated, lethargic, and soon-hungry following a high carb meal, and if that factors into me losing fat faster (as so many seem to do), I'd rather go with that. Does it?

    Yes! If you're insulin resistance, why would you continue to flog your body with carbs that it can't process efficiently? This isn't a question about fat loss, but health.

    Well, I'm describing that as an effect of high carbs. Like, downing a big bowl of pasta of white rice. Which I normally don't do. I'd be going more moderate carbs 200g/day max if I were dieting in a way to include them.
    But I'm wondering if my poor insulin resistance- as indicated by how I feel when going high carb- means I'd lose fat faster with fewer carbs. So many nutritionists- including ketogenic dieters right here on reddit- say there is no real 'fat loss advantage' to going low carb outside of the fact that your appetite is more suppressed and cravings reduced on account of the fat and protein.

How do you measure your health? Is it by your weight, your blood pressure, your cholesterol profile, or maybe all of them? According to Dr. Brian Lenzkes, theres one critical health marker you should pay attention to (but probably dont): insulin sensitivity. Dr. Lenzkes is an internal medicine doctor who focuses on clinical nutrition and helps his patients through lifestyle and nutrition changes. He also happens to be one of todays guests. Brian believes mainstream nutrition advice has made people so worried about fat and cholesterol that they dont pay attention to the damage carbs do to their body. Insulin resistance what happens when you lose insulin sensitivity is a direct result of eating too many carbs and too many meals per day, and its a precursor for diabetes and heart disease. However, most people dont know they have it until its too late. The CDC director admits that over a third of U.S. adults have prediabetes (which involves insulin resistance), and most of them have no idea. The worst part is, by the time youre insulin resistant, its harder to turn your metabolism back to normal. When you're insulin resistant, everything changes. It's kind of like instead of having t

    To my knowledge this has been demonstrated in mice. Mice that were not necessarily fed a healthy diet and that are mice and not as likely to eat that kind of diet like humans are in nature, for the past hundred thousand years.
    However of all the studies in humans, while there have been some negative ones showing arterial stiffness or other issues, there have been none, that I know of, showing the diet to cause insulin resistance and several that showed increased insulin sensitivity.
    I have read that while in ketosis one will develop insulin resistance but it is a temporary and necessary response by your body to ensure that your brain gets enough glucose and, most importantly, that this resistance is completely reversible and sensitivity will go back up if/when one started eating carbs again.

    Does anyone know? Studies? Science?

  2. brownfat

    Blood glucose tracking can give a good sense of changing insulin resistance. If over time on the diet your fasted bg is falling and/or your post prandial bg rise to a particular food diminishes then you are likely becoming more insulin sensitive. Fasting should help.

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 laten

Fat Contributes To Insulin Resistance

So, while discussing LCHF with my doc this publication was referred to - This claims that insulin is required to metabolize Carbs, protein AND fat. Wait, what? If this is true, then eating a diet high in fat is not the solution for insulin resistance. IF could be, because that minimizes the amount of time your body is producing insulin. But merely cutting out carbs, and not eating too much protein, will not reduce insulin resistance on its own. Excellent question. I believe @erdoke or @richard can provide a much more detailed description than I can, but I will say that Insulin is involved. Im not sure that your conclusions comment is correct, but they should be able to help you when they get back online later. Do you have a link to the full text of the study? It is difficult to determine whether they were studying type-1 or type-2 diabetics and whether or not any of the subjects were on ketogenic diets. Also, one of the problems with insulin resistance is that fat cells stop being able to absorb fat from the bloodstream. Basically, anything you eat has the ability to raise insulin. Stress also has this ability. But since you have to eat something to survive, the goal is to eat the Continue reading >>
