Carbs, Keto, Insulin And The Alternative Hypothesis, Part Two

129 Comments on Carbs, Keto, Insulin And The Alternative Hypothesis, Part Two Pardon the delay in posting and responding to comments. I was on Dauphin Island off the coast of Alabama for a wedding last week. I couldnt ask The Older Brother to sit in, since it was his Middle Son getting married. Anyway in my last post, I commented briefly on a video presentation of a study that, in some peoples minds, nailed the coffin-lid shut on the Carb-Insulin hypothesis. I replied that I dont believe the hypothesis is dead, but needs some revising. Based on personal experience, lots of reading and listening to podcasts, conversations with other people and so forth, Ive been slowly revising it my own head for years. So let me reach up there between my ears and pluck out some thoughts, then see if I can work them into a coherent post. More Carbohydrates => Higher Insulin => Fat Storage Thats the Carbohydrate-Insulin hypothesis in a nutshell. The more carbohydrates you eat, the more insulin you produce, and the more insulin you produce, the fatter you become. Or to express it in reverse for those trying to lose weight: the fewer carbohydrates you eat, the less insulin you produce, and the less in Continue reading >>

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

    Normally i pee like a race horse for 2 days after my carb up which means im back in ketosis, Breath smells like crap, my wee smells like meat, and i find i get really de-hydrated...

Learn about good carbs and bad carbs. If you're wondering which carbs to eat for weight loss and if you think carbs are bad for you watch this video. Carbs don't make you fat! Don't Avoid Them! FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O5tUkn Which carbs are good and which carbs are bad and which ones are going to help you lose weight and which should you avoid to not gain weight. These are some very common questions that I get all the time from my clients both online and in the gym. One thing that's for certain is that there seems to be a giant carb phobia going around. Most people that want to lose weight are under the impression that carbs are the enemy. So I recommend watching this video all the way through because I'm going to explain not only how carbs are good for us but I'm also going to tell you guys exactly which carbs are best to make you lose fat fast. The first thing you have to know about carbs is that they are your bodies preferred source of energy. So before your body will break down body fat for energy it'll first use all the carbs you consume and the ones that are stored glycogen in your liver and your mus

Insulin Spike With No Carbs In System?

I told my sister and her boyfriend about my Keto diet, and my sis' bf is a pharmacist. When I went to get a drink of coke zero, he said 'you better not drink too much of that, the caffeine will give you an insulin spike' I should have asked him at the time, but didn't, so what I want to know is, what happens if you give your body an insulin spike when there is no glucose (carbs) present in your system? Is an insulin spike GOOD when there is no glucose left? He said it to me like an insulin spike was a bad thing, but with no glucose to use, wouldn't it then use the ketones, which is a good thing? Depends on timing: caffeine is best on an empty stomach, it crosses the blood brain barrier that way. Almost pointless (and possibly unhealthy) right after a meal: it doesn't absorb well. Insulin inhibits lipolysis for a while, but if you were to spike it after a workout with BCAA's or whey...it's all good. I wouldn't worry about the odd diet soda here or there though. Well, unless you live on it. "Arterial plaque is primarily composed of unsaturated fats particularly polyunsaturated ones." (Felton, C V, et al, Lancet, 1994, 344:1195) ...or something like this daily. Problem? ;) I can't do Continue reading >>

    Second time I pee'd on my ketone test strips and they are 1 step above low ;0( I am not eating a whole lot of carbs here....like no more than 40g....why am I not going into ketosis this time.....guess I am gonna have to just buckle down even more?
    How long did it take for your body to go into ketosis and what was your carb intake when you were in ketosis....I am just curious.
    Also, I know that there are alot of people who do not agree with low carb eating. I have done my research and prefer to hear from people who are also eating this way. Thank you.

    It's just an indicator, not a tool. As long as it turns you're fine. I started at under 20 gr/ day and when I slowly added carbs it turned the same color with 70 gr/ day 3 months later. Please remember to take your supplements every day.

We have an amazon shop page where you can see all the products we use and recommend and if you buy there you pay the same price you anyways would, but we get a small commission from the purchase.) In this video we are going to talk about how you know that you are fat adapted or keto adapted. And what is the difference between ketosis and being fat-adapted. Im going to tell you about my personal experience about being on the keto diet for almost 3 months now. Being in ketosis means that you have between 0,5 to 3 level of blood ketones. You can be in ketosis but still not being fat adapted or keto adapted. If you fast for an extended time like you stop eating at 6 in the evening and you fast until the morning you will have a light for of ketosis, but it doesn't mean you are fat adapted. Fat adapted means that your body prefers using fat as the primary fuel source for the body. You can go back to eating carbs on a cheat day but then your body very fast will go back to burning fat again. There is a lot of co

Insulin And Keto: What You Need To Know

If you want to make keto really work for you, it helps to understand a little bit about how the diet does its magic and one of the big players here is the hormone insulin. Insulin does a whole lot of different things, but its best-known as the hormone that you make to metabolize carbs. Insulin gets a really bad rap in low-carb circles, to the point where it can get really oversimplified. Theres more to weight gain than insulin! For general health, insulin isnt necessarily bad , and its actually necessary for some health-related goals (for example, if you want to gain muscle, insulin is definitely your friend). But keto isnt just about general health. Keto is about a specific metabolic shift. If your goal is ketosis specifically, insulin is bad news heres what you need to know. The whole point of the ketogenic diet is that youre forcing your body to use ketone bodies for energy, instead of fat and carbohydrate. Thats what makes the diet work. Insulin suppresses ketone production . So if you want to get into ketosis and stay there, you want to minimize insulin as much as possible. Unless youre taking outside insulin, the easiest way to do this is by changing what you eat. Insulin is Continue reading >>

    Hey everyone, I would like some advice... I used to be very fat/keto adapted in 2012 to 2015 I was strict keto I started with a BMI of 45 to a BMI of 24 (I know BMI is crap however it gives an idea of what weight I was and went to)....so from 2015 till now I have slowly been putting weight on as I was on and off keto to where I'm now a BMI of >30! My question is I have tried to go back on to it without success and I have been told that once you miss the bandwagon then you can't go back into ketosis.... is this true? P.S I'm desperate now lol ...TIA

    Firstly, good for you for getting back on the keto-train! I haven't heard about 'missing the boat' that once you're out of ketosis that you can never return (a bit like you've been locked out for good??) What it will mean of course is switching back on your fuel usage system (that is burning fat again, rather than glucose). Of course, this will take the requisite three or so days for the fuel switch (carb withdrawal) and then the process to being fully fat adapted. So, to answer your question, I wouldn't think that your body would shut off the fuel usage system because you've used it once and changed back again.

    Thank you Louise I hope so... I just wish I never stopped

    What is insulin resistance? Insulin is a hormone that facilitates the transport of blood sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into cells throughout the body for use as fuel. In response to the normal increase in blood sugar after a meal, the pancreas secretes insulin into the bloodstream. With insulin resistance, the normal amount of insulin secreted is not sufficient to move glucose into the cells – thus the cells are said to be “resistant ...
