FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... 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

The Ketogenic Diet & Blood Sugar Balance - Mindbodygreen

Editors note: Will Cole , D.C., is a longtime member of the mbg family (hes in the mbg Collective and is even a class instructor !).His new book, Ketotarian , is all about marrying a ketogenic and vegetarian, vegan, or pescatariandiet for exponentially greater health benefits. Here, he shares how going on a ketogenic diet can help get you off the blood sugar roller coaster. You've heard about it online or from your friends, but what the heck is the ketogenic diet? Well, I'm glad you asked. Put simply, the ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) nutritional strategy. But what the heck does that even mean? Well, let's start with the basics. By using a specific ratio of high fats, moderate proteins, and low carbohydrates, the goal of the ketogenic diet is to shift your body from a sugar-burning state into a fat-burning state . Using fat for fuel is also known as nutritional ketosis and it has a ton of health benefits . Most of us are using sugar to fuel ourselvesand it's not the healthiest way to live. Before we talk about burning fat for fuel, it's important to know that the majority of people are burning sugar for fuel most (if not all) of the time. And that's because Continue reading >>

    No personal experience, but you may want to check research by Dr. Dominic D’Agostino. I’ve listened to several interviews and podcasts (for instance, this one) with him, and he appears to be legit / science-based.

    -- very interesting. I've seen D'Agostino's name pop up in relation to keto but have not listened to him yet. Looking at the agenda on the link you provided let's me know what I'll be listening to on my drive home!

    Another thing that comes to mind is watch what happens if/when you reintroduce carbs, whether temporarily or permanently (very few people seem to stick to keto for life). And if/when doing so, you may want to experiment with both dosing (start with a low dose and increase progressively) and type of carbs (start with the "healthy" ones). My guess is that if carbs are indeed what causes/maintain inflammation, it’s not any amount and/or any type of carbs that triggers the inflammation.

Reason Why They Give Gelatin To Sick People In Hospitals, Find Out The Reason! (With Recipe) What is gelatin? It is made of proline and glycine which are amino acids that many people fail to consume inadequate amount as they are found in the fibrous tissues, bones, and organs that people do not consume nowadays. These amino acids are very important for a good skin condition, hair and nail growth and for optimal immune function and weight regulation. The glycine makes 1/3 of the amino acids in gelatin and it has anti-inflammatory properties that accelerate the healing of the wounds and improve the sleep quality. Why is it given to people in hospitals? It is regarded as a clear liquid and it is also one of the easiest foods that the body can digest. In hospitals, gelatin is given to some patients because their stomach cant handle any food. When a person is recovering, the body needs something that can be easily digested, which makes the jello a perfect solution. The jello is a gelatin with some food color and it can improve the digestive strength and gut integrity by enhancing the gastric acid secretion and by restoring the stomachs healthy mucosal lining. The gelatin absorbs the wat

Higher Fasting Glucose On Ketogenic Diets: Reason To Worry?

Higher Fasting Glucose on Ketogenic Diets: Reason to Worry? The vast majority of people who adopt a low carb or ketogenic diet experience stunning improvements in blood glucose control and insulin levels. Carbohydrate restriction is so effective for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, in fact, that researchers have said it should be the default treatment for these issues , and those who follow it are typically able to reduce or eliminate many medications, including insulin . However, individual variability being what it is, a small percentage of patients see a rise in fasting blood glucose after some length of time on a very low carb diet. Considering that elevated fasting glucose is part of the diagnostic criteria for both type 2 diabetes (T2D) and metabolic syndrome, is this seemingly paradoxical rise a reason for concern? As is true for so much of functional medicine, its all about context. A fasting blood glucose (FBG) thats higher than one would typically expect in someone adhering long-term to a very low carb diet doesnt automatically indicate anything nefarious. There are many reasons why FBG might be elevated, and many ways to assess metabolic health and glucoregulatio Continue reading >>

    Every book I've read says:
    Esters are more acidic than ketones, because the resonance between the two oxygen atoms gives less opportunity for the delocalization of the electron pair on the alpha carbon in esters contrary to what happens in ketones.
    But, in esters, when the resonance happens between the two oxygen atoms, the oxygen atom gains a positive charge which is highly unstable, given that oxygen is highly electronegative. So, shouldn’t the order of acidity be the other way round?

  2. ron

    So, shouldn’t the order be the other way round?
    Yes, it is the other way around. Ketones (pKa ~ 20) are more acidic than esters (pKa ~ 25). The figure below shows the resonance structures for the enolate anion of a ketone and an ester. Resonance structures II and IV stabilize the enolate anion in the ketone and ester respectively. In the ester, there is an additional resonance structure, V. Through resonance structure V, the alkoxy group in the ester donates electrons to the carbonyl. This movement of electron density towards the carbonyl will tend to destabilize the formation of any negative charge on the carbon attached on the other side of the carbonyl (electrostatic repulsion). This reduces the likelihood of the formation of an enolate anion on that carbon. Therefore, in the ester, to whatever extent structure V contributes, structure IV will contribute somewhat less. Hence, the ester enolate anion resonance structure IV plays a smaller role and the enolate anion is less stabilized in the ester compared to the ketone. Consequently, the ester is less acidic than the ketone.

Learn more here http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Get The Clothes That I Wear at 40% Off - Use Code TD40 at http://www.Hylete.com Previously it was touted to eat every 2 hours if you are bodybuilding, with some even waking up in the middle of the night to eat. The thought was that if you did not eat your body would begin to break down your muscles, which is the last thing we want. Now you have likely heard about intermittent fasting and how without this approach you will not be maximizing your fitness potential. So which strategy is correct, or are different approaches better for different goals? What is IF? The idea is to go without food for a period of time so that you deplete your immediate energy sources, ie your blood glucose and liver glycogen stores, so your body is forced into fat-burning mode. The main benefit that those of us trying to keep muscle and lose fat are concerned with is the increase in Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is made in the pituitary gland and plays a role in the our development as we grow as children, but also plays a key role in bone strength and lean body mass. Higher HGH levels are a

Should I Be Worried About Low Blood Sugar On Keto Or During Intermittent Fasting?

How should I eat after reaching my goal weight? Should I be worried about low blood sugar on keto or during intermittent fasting? Not if you are in relatively good health. A healthy body is perfectly capable of keeping blood sugar levels stable even on low-carb diets. If you are diabetic, however, you may be at risk of hypoglycemia if you don't adjust your medication to this diet [ 1 ]. If you were not diagnosed with diabetes but develop symptoms of hypoglycemia on keto or when fasting, there's no reason to worry. Studies show that some people develop symptoms like shakiness and irritation during food restriction despite having blood glucose within normal ranges [ 2 ]. A more likely cause of discomfort in the first days of keto or fasting is the keto flu. The keto flu is a result of electrolyte imbalances and includes symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, muscle aches, and headaches [ 1 ]. You can reduce the severity of any of these symptoms by limiting your carbs gradually and staying hydrated. We suggest decreasing your carb intake by 20 to 30 grams daily until you reach your target intake. Eating smaller meals throughout the day may help you get into keto more easily. If you experi Continue reading >>

    I'm 5 weeks in and for the past 2 weeks I've had truly repellent, revolting bad breath . My friends and family have rated it about a 7 or 8/10 . My teenager has to open the car windows , it's that bad ! It's ruining my social life - I wouldn't go to a party last weekend for fear of breathing on people :-( I've read up on it as much as I can find and checked - no, it's not down not drinking enough water. No, it's not down to eating too much protein. No, it's not down to oral health care - I brush, I floss, I mouthwash and tongue scrape .( And my mouth is actually loads fresher since removing sugar from my diet .) I read a reply somewhere to a similar question and the person enquired whether the post writer was in weeks 3-6 ..... so this leads me to ask, has anyone else had the bad breath ( possibly just between weeks 3-6 ) and then it gone away ? I really do want to stick to keto, I've lost over a stone already and have another 5 to go .... but this bad breath is a deal breaker ... Please tell me it gets better ........... please ....
