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 confusion about what it means to be Keto adopted or fat adapted and that is simply because there isn't a scientific definition for what this is. The longer you are on a Ketogenic diet the better your body will feel and the better adjusted you will be. Think about it your whole life you have probably been on a sugar diet and it takes time until your body works out fully how to digest and process fat. I have read that it can actually take up to 6 months. Here are the symptoms that you are going to experience when you are keto adjusted. 1. Increased focus and awareness 2. Better energy levels 3. The non existence of carb cravings 4. Your appetite goes down a lot 5.Your body starts preferring the fatty foods and the ketogenic diet As I said that it happens on a gradient and the more you do the diet the more of these signs you will notice. I still had carb cravings for up to 2 months into the diet. The ketogenic diet is a long process and is a lifestyle change. But it will be more than worth it if you push through.

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 >>

Getting most calories from fat can be expected to reduce insulin sensitivity. There is a whole lot of science behind this, but the bottom line is that when in ketosis (eating low carb, high fat), we need a lot more insulin than the consumed carbs suggests. So you will have to adjust insulin dosing accordingly. Once you have done that, maintaining good control should get a lot easier.
    I gave up on the ketogenic diet because sticking to it was just too hard. Especially in China, where I have been living for a while. After switching back to a 'normal' diet, my control became somewhat more difficult, but my insulin requirements went down. I have become more insulin sensitive, and my TDD is now lower than it has ever been. Using a pump also helps with that, but I suspect that much of the difference is because of less fat in the diet.

    The only thing constant about insulin dosing for me over the last 40+ years is change. At one point I was taking at least a total of 120 units a day, but that was with massive aspartame consumption. Once I stopped diet pop (soda), I now take a total of around 60 units, and take it totally differently amounts at different times than I used to. I could take less insulin if I ate less carbs, but we all make our decisions on our lifestyle.
    Everyone is different, and our environment and what we consume effects us all differently. And women have it even tougher with those pesky hormones.

Ketosis

Tweet Ketosis is a state the body may find itself in either as a result of raised blood glucose levels or as a part of low carb dieting. Low levels of ketosis is perfectly normal. However, high levels of ketosis in the short term can be serious and the long term effects of regular moderate ketosis are only partially known at the moment. What is ketosis? Ketosis is a state the body goes into if it needs to break down body fat for energy. The state is marked by raised levels of ketones in the blood which can be used by the body as fuel. Ketones which are not used for fuel are excreted out of the body via the kidneys and the urine. Is ketosis the same as ketoacidosis? There is often confusion as to the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. Ketosis is the state whereby the body is producing ketones. In ketosis, the level of ketones in the blood can be anything between normal to very high. Diabetic ketoacidosis, also known as DKA, only describes the state in which the level of ketones is either high or very high. In ketoacidosis, the amount of ketones in the blood is sufficient to turn the blood acidic, which is a dangerous medical state. When does ketosis occur? Ketosis will tak Continue reading >>

Ketogenic Diet Improves Insulin Sensitivity And Numerous Aging Markers

A physician conducted a decade-long experiment on the health effects of a ketogenic diet, using himself as the laboratory rat; he experienced improvement in insulin sensitivity, body fat, lipids, blood sugar, and other markers A ketogenic diet requires carbohydrate and protein restriction, with 50 to 80 percent of calories coming from fats; this forces your body to shift toward using ketones as its primary fuel source, instead of glucose Although your brain is more dependent on glucose than your heart, your liver can produce a ketone-like compound that your brain can efficiently use for energy Scientists extended the lifespan of mice by 20 percent by suppressing the activity of just one gene that helps control metabolism and energy balance; this is further evidence that longevity is tied to insulin signaling The best way to jumpstart your fat-burning/ketone-producing engine is by drastically reducing your consumption of sugar and grains, fasting intermittently, and maintaining a consistent exercise routine By Dr. Mercola We are just beginning to understand the biological intricacies of aging. A growing body of research is challenging the belief that aging is beyond your control, pr Continue reading >>
