Ketosis Vs. Ketoacidosis (dka): What Is The Difference?

Let’s break it down so that you can understand exactly what ketosis is and how it differs from ketoacidosis. But the states they refer to are nothing alike. In this case, maybe mistakes are understandable. Many people who believe that ketosis is dangerous are mixing it up with another state called "ketoacidosis." The two words do sound very similar. And some people simply make mistakes. Profit motives tend to muddy up the works when it comes to getting clear, factual information about your health. Well, there are a lot of individuals and companies which all have their own goals and motivations. Where do these misperceptions come from? Here’s the thing though … that is all misinformation. You then Googled something like, "low carb dangerous" and found a list of link-bait articles informing you that low-carb is a ketogenic diet, and ketosis is a dangerous metabolic state which can be fatal. And then maybe someone said something to you like, "What are you thinking? Low-carb is a dangerous diet." If you are thinking about starting a low-carb diet, maybe you have mentioned it to some of your family or friends. By the time you finish reading this article, you will understand why lo Continue reading >>

    Two things I'd like to mention first:
    - I THOUGHT I was getting my "monthly friend" but have yet to, so the weight gain could be water weight ALTHOUGH I took a water pill (furosemide) and it didn't help!
    - I was advised as follows:
    I started a Paleo diet at the beginning of January with no problems. I lost ten pounds, but was told that it was probably water weight. I expressed interest in Keto, and was told (after a look at my MFP diary) that I needed to eat more calories. I am 5'1 and 219 lbs (I was 215 before I attempted Keto earlier this week).
    He suggested I eat between 1200-1600 cal./day and add dairy back into my diet. I ate the 1200 as it was a lot of food, but then when I began to feel the weight stick on, and increase, I read that a DEFICIT is still important, EVEN ON KETO!
    This gentleman told me that all that matters is that I hit my calorie mark, hit my macros and stay away from fruit (which I have not touched since switching!)
    So my daily calories intake was suggested by a keto calculator to be 1,059/day. I have gained FOUR pounds and feel like all the weight I lost around my mid section has come back.
    If you could look at my diary, or perhaps tell me what I THINK I already know - the dairy is stalling/making me gain weight, OR that I AM getting my monthly friend and it's just water weight. I'm so confused, I start school tomorrow and all the weight loss is gone Please help me, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!!!

    I know how frustrating it can be to not see the scale moving in the right direction! I have had weeks where my weight fluctuates by seven pounds from Monday to Friday. Somedays it will look like I gained 5 pounds overnight! If you stick to it and drink plenty of water you will see the scale go down. I have noticed every weekend it looks like I have gained and I do not eat any more on the weekends however I do not drink much water for some reason and it make the scale go up temporarily.
    I looked at several days in your food diary and it seemed good to me. I would just give it a little more time for your body to adapt to the changes.
    Hope someone with more experience chimes in with good advice!
    Take care

    Oh thank you so much for the encouraging words, I am so depressed I feel as though perhaps adding the dairy in was a poor idea, as I started gaining weight shortly after that. I think I will tweak the dairy down to just butter and see how it goes. Good luck to you as well, and thank you again!
