Got Brain Fog? These Are The Best Mind-clearing Tips On The Internet

No matter where you are on your wellness journey, whether you're a seasoned yogi or just ran your first 5k, one thing remains true: Clearing the mind isn't easy. If you've ever tried meditating—or anything remotely meditative, like a long run or sitting down to write—you're familiar with watching your to-do list unfurl, seeing thoughts buzz by begging to be tended to, even experiencing an unprecedented amount of itches on your face as you start to transition from your outer world to the inner one. The mind will do almost anything to prevent you from settling into yourself, at least at first. For most of us, the truth is that our inner landscapes don't get the attention they deserve because our lives have infinite appealing distractions. But spending time with yourself is one of the best ways to feel centered and less anxious about what's going on around you. Plus, stress has been shown to cause inflammation, which we know is the root cause of many diseases. It doesn't have to be meditation, by the way: It can be mindful walking, doing something repetitive like knitting, flowing through asana—really anything that quiets the mind for you. So we curated the crème de la crème o Continue reading >>

    Foggy on the whole "ketosis" thing...

    Hey guys! After browsing the forum I am getting pretty confused. I read the "Rapid Fat Loss" chapters of the book so as to not get overwhelmed by info...as Tim recommends. Now I have some questions regarding ketosis, and these damn beans...
    PART 1) So is SCD a ketogenic diet or not? Are we supposed to enter into ketosis, or monitor whether we are in it? If not, are we supposed to stay OUT of it using beans? (This is what I did... I was in ketosis and miserable because it was my first week, but then re- read a part in the book when Tim recommended a focus on beans to one girl that was experiencing these symptoms because "you are never supposed to feel tired and cranky on this diet."
    PART 2) This is more of an opinion thing but... I was kind of wondering about the whole ketosis thing... Does anyone know if it is "bad" to go IN AND OUT of ketosis?
    The question isnt weather KETOSIS is bad for you (honestly there is evidence from either side, and I am a firm believer in the "DO WHAT FEELS GOOD TO YOUR BODY DIET) but I would like to know if anyone knows whether constantly cycling in and out of ketosis is bad?
    I have experienced that period "keto-adapting" where you get headaches/dizziness/fatigue, and it's definitely bad. But, once it is over it seems like the body functions quite well. BUT I wonder if the stress on my body going through it over and over again would be bad for me? OR is it that once you get through the intiation of the SCD diet, then even after getting kicked out of ketosis on cheat day, you don't have to experience the whole thing all over again on Monday?
    **I just completed week 2. My first week felt great until about Thursday, then the lethargy,headaches, and smelly pee started (ketosis). I had almost no beans my first week coz i dnt like them. I had my first cheat day last Saturday but actually stayed on SCD all day, and only had a cheat meal in the evening. The beginning of week 2 was OK but again started to feel pretty terrible by midweek (but less terrible than first week) and also emphasized beans in my day more. I think I haven't entered into ketosis again this week because I my pee doesn't smell... I know thats not a very accurate assessment=) ...but I still don;t have an abundance of energy, I get hot flashes and sweats, and feel light headed after doing stuff like vacuuming (hardly strenuous).

    Should I increase my bean intake until I get rid of the symptoms, or should I tough it out because this is just the natural course of things? I'm confused by Tim's comment that you "shouldnt feel cranky and tired" vs. what everyone is saying on here which is "you feel cranky and tired for the first two weeks"

    I'm gonna paste in an old answer I gave which might help:
    "Technically, as soon as your body relies on fat (dietary or from your own stores) ketones are produced as a result of the different metabolic process which the body uses to create energy from fat. Hence, as soon as your body is burning fat (and not storing it), you are in ketosis.
    "Ketosis" though as it's commonly understood in discussions on weight loss and fitness is more of a threshold. If you are relying on fat for a high enough percentage of your energy produced, you are going to be producing more ketones and understood as being "in ketosis." This is where the commonly-associated symptoms like bad breath are witnessed. Some of the other symptoms of this state are -- early on -- a sort of brain fog (not something I've experienced on SCD, but I tried a ketogenic diet for fun and definitely had it) as your body eases into energy production largely by fat. Afterwards many report increased concentration and decreased hunger."
    so in answer to your questions;
    1) yes and no. Yes you are in a ketogenic metabolic state for at least some of the time on SCD. That being said, technically even a low fat, low calorie diet would have some ketosis involved since you are at least partly relying on your own fat to fill the caloric gap. But like I said, typical ketogenic diets are low-carb, high-fat (65%+) and that puts you much more heavily which makes it a Ketogenic diet with a capital K. Is SCD a genuine Ketogenic diet then? Not by this definition, though it certainly has you experiencing ketosis and shares a lot more ideologically with Keto diets than low fat diets.

    2) the effects of entering full blow ketosis can be uncomfortable, but generally not dangerous. In fact its healthy. It would be unnatural to never rely on our own fat stores. The only thing I'd watch for is consuming less than 10g of carbs per day--which is possible if you aren't eating legumes. Your brain needs this minimum amount of carbs, and if it doesn't get this minimum in a while there can be problems. I found when experimenting with a Ketogenic diet that just eating SCD minus the beans didn't get me enough carbs to get this minimum. I think at least part of my headaches were related to this. Diabetics are sometimes in danger of ketoacidosis, which is indeed a dangerous state where their blood acidity becomes dangerous, but this is related to their underlying inability to regulate their blood sugar. If ketosis were dangerous, humans (and every animal which relies on fat) would never have evolved it as a basic way of using stored fat.

You Can Grow New Brain Cells. Here's How

Helen - just to add to your theory about saturated fats - I come from a family where high cholesterol has been a major problem (from both parents). I have been on cholesterol-lowering medication for most of my adult life and my levels have hovered around 8, no matter what I did. I used low-fat margarine, restricted how many eggs per week, avoided animal fats in every way - still hovered around 8. About a year ago I started restricting grain to a small bowl of natural muesli in the morning, removed dairy, removed processed sugars, and am eating good quality animal protein (fat and all) and fruit, veges and nuts - what many would call a "modified Paleo diet" to give it a shorthand name. I drink black or green tea, water, natural mineral water or a fruit smoothie made with nut milk. Quite apart from the many other health benefits I have seen occur since changing my diet in this way (average blood sugars down to 7.1, improved kidney and liver function, skin clearer, accelerated new hair growth, loss of 10 kilos without even trying, reduced arthritic pain), my cholesterol has dropped to 4.8 - normal for the first time in my life. Yes, I am still taking medication, but such a dramatic ch Continue reading >>

    I wasn’t sure which section I should post this in, my strategy is what I call the 4–2–1 plan, I fast 2 day non consecutive days a week, eat a low carb but not calorie restricted diet 4 days a week to keep the fat burning benefits of ketosis going and then I give myself 1 day a week to indulge and eat whatever I want, usually a Saturday pasta dinner and wonderful dessert. I also walk 4 to 6 miles a day during the week and 10 to 12 miles on Saturday.
    Low Carb plans such as Atkins can be very effective for some people including me, many people who start a low carb diet experience get what’s called the “ketosis flu” or the “induction flu” in the first few days while the body is adapting to burning ketones instead of glucose.
    The basic symptoms are:
    – Headaches
    – Nausea
    – Upset stomach
    – Lack of mental clarity (brain fog)
    – Sleepiness
    – Fatigue
    It’s called the “ketosis flu” for a reason: you feel sick. I’ve gone through it and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. Fortunately it only lasted 2 days but then suddenly I woke up feeling much better, less hungry and my energy level was really high and consistent throughout the day!
    The first time I thought to myself: “What the heck am I doing? I feel like I’m going to die!” but I persevered and when it was over I didn’t regret a thing because what I had gained mentally and physically was 100% worth it.
    For those of you that are going through the ketosis flu, don’t give up! I know you feel like it’s never going to get better but stick with it and you´ll be so happy you did! I’m telling you, waking up refreshed for the first time in years, not getting the afternoon “blah” feeling and stuffing my face with carbs to try to boost my energy is the best side effect of the low carb diet I’ve experienced. Okay, losing weight while eating good food, feeling full and satisfied is great too.
    First you have to understand why your body is reacting this way. Your body’s been burning glucose for energy so it’s basically full of enzymes that are waiting to deal with the carbs you eat, but now the body needs to make new enzymes that burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, and the transition period causes the flu-like symptoms.
    There are some things you can do to lessen the symptoms of the ketosis flu and to make it go away sooner (to force the body to transition sooner) Ok, let’s get to the good part – what to do:
    First of all – you’re probably dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water while you’re on a low carb diet, and then drink some more.
    Watch your electrolytes. When the body is getting rid of excess insulin from your former carb-crazy diet you´ll lose lots of fluids that have been retained in your body. This causes the rapid weight loss most people see in their first few days of ketosis, it’s mostly water, sorry. When you lose all the retained water you also lose electrolytes like sodium, magnesium and potassium. When you’re lacking them you´ll feel like crap so when you’re feeling really ill on the ketosis flu try things like chicken/beef broth and look for foods rich in these minerals. Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral.
    Ok, here is where people throw the red flag – Eat more fat – Yup, I said MORE fat. Have some butter, just not on a roll, eat some bacon and eggs for breakfast, just skip the potatoes and toast. This will force your body to hurry up the transition. You´ll think this is crazy and think you´ll never get lose weight eating this way, but you will.
    Don’t eat too much protein – The body can transform protein into glucose so if you eat too much of it in the first days it will slow down the transition. Go for fatty meat and cheese if you can, add fat to protein shakes etc.
    Drink water, replenish electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium) with food and supplements, drink broth, eat fat and not too much protein.
    I hope this helps, and have a great day
    Charles

    ” Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral.”
    I have been forgetting to take a multi-vitamin on fast days. Thanks for the reminder.
    “Eat more fat – Yup, I said MORE fat. ”
    I will have avocado more often.

    Hi there, I've tried low carb and ketogenic diets with really fantastic results but after a little while I quit since I experience intense brain fog and a weird spacey feeling. My job keeps me on my feet and demands a lot from my brain so I need to be firing at 100%. Is the brain fog something I just need to power through until my body adapts? Am I maybe just not getting enough protein/fats?
    Any input is much appreciated. :)
    EDIT: Is this just part of "keto flu"?

  2. manygoats

    Sometimes the fog can be from not getting enough electrolytes, which can also help to avoid the "keto flu." If you look in the FAQ there are some electrolyte guidelines which should be part of your daily macros. You'd be surprised at the impact a cup of bullion and some lite/no salt can do to sharpen your focus and in general make your day go a little better.

  3. peppermintandbooks

    Thanks. :) I never paid attention to my electrolytes before. I bet that's the culprit. I will start keto again and pay proper attention to them.
