Keto 101: The Science Behind Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic diet or keto diet is a nutrition management system characterized by a high-fat, adequate-protein, and low-carbohydrate diet. The primary goal of this diet is to induce ketosis or a metabolic state in which the body burns fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Understanding the science behind keto diet requires understanding the fact that carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are three primary macronutrients. By definition, macronutrients are energy-providing chemical substances that are essential in day-to-day functions of humans and other animals. The underlying principle behind keto diet is managing behaviors related to macronutrient consumption and the way the body use a particular macronutrient as a source of energy. Mechanisms of ketogenic diet The abundance of carbohydrates across different food groups means that they are readily consumed in regular and unmediated diet patterns. When consumed, the body converts the carbohydrates into glucose and insulin. Glucose is the easiest molecule the body can use as energy. This is the reason why carb-rich diet is very common. On the other hand, insulin is a hormone used for promoting the absorption of glucose from the bloodstr Continue reading >>

    Looking for some details and understanding about the metabolic states of carnivorous animals. Are, say, lions in a ketogenic state their entire lives? Is that a meaningful question, or is something completely different going on? +1 internet points if you can point me in the direction of good info.

    Bears don't go into ketosis. Hypercarnivores will go into ketosis only when they are starving but not on low carb diets.

    It is not a very meaningful question.
    Humans are evolutionary adapted towards ketosis, we leverage the advantage of being able to survive mainly on ketones, formed during the liberation of stored energy (body fat).
    No other animals have adapted to support such a large brain / body mass size.

Keeping Up With Ketosis

By: Elizabeth Eckelkamp and Jeffrey Bewley Printable Version This July, researchers and industry individuals gathered to exchange information and ideas in Orlando, Florida at the 2015 Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) of the American Dairy Science Association and the American Society of Animal Science. Some highlights of presentations focused on ketosis detection and research results are provided below. Interest in early disease detection has increased with the availability of precision dairy technologies. Ketosis detection: Researchers from the University of Guelph presented several studies on the potential for predicting subclinical ketosis. One study compared lying time of healthy cows to cows with subclinical ketosis, and cows with subclinical ketosis and at least one other disease. No lying time differences were identified for 1st lactation cows. The only differences reported were for cows with 2 or more lactations following calving. Subclinically ketotic cows and cows with more than one disease spent 38 to 92 minutes/day more lying down than healthy cows. A counterpart to the first study compared rumination time (SCR Engineers) of healthy cows to the same groups. The differences in Continue reading >>

Ketosis

Ketosis, metabolic disorder marked by high levels of ketones in the tissues and body fluids, including blood and urine. With starvation or fasting, there is less sugar than normal in the blood and less glycogen (the storage form of sugar) in the cells of the body, especially the liver cells; fat accumulates in the liver, as do amino acids, from which the liver can produce more glycogen. Ketosis may be present in diabetes mellitus. In diabetic ketoacidosis, characterized by excessive levels of ketones in the blood that lead to a decrease in blood pH, very high blood sugar and severe intravascular and cellular dehydration create a life-threatening disorder that requires immediate treatment. When cattle are affected by ketosis, they lose weight and produce less milk; dietary adjustment to meet the special requirements of individual cattle helps avoid the condition. Continue reading >>

    Most animals don't have a mechanism for ketosis. Ketosis is a mechanism to provide energy for the brain. Animal brains do not require as much energy as humans and thus the energy requirements can be fulfilled via gluconeogenesis.

    My cat is on a keto diet (raw food carnivore diet) but ketones are always negative. Here's one of many articles I've read it in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2194504/. I've also talked to my vet about this.
    Cats are not humans. Humans have mechanisms for ketosis why are you assuming all animals do and in response to the same stimuli? Anyone can, yes. Not any animal. That's a big difference.
    Ketosis is ketosis. Even on a protein and fat only diet my cat is not in ketosis. His walnut sized brain doesn't demand it. Cats do get ketostix when diabetic but not just from eating a natural cat diet. I don't like it misrepresented either which is why I don't discuss things when drunk :)

  3. anbeav

    If you switched the cats diet it wouldn't go into ketosis though. I'm speaking of nutritional ketosis not ketoacidosis. Other animals don't achieve nutritional ketosis but can achieve ketoacidosis, not the same thing.
    And what do you mean that humans should never be in ketosis for extended periods of time? Why?
    You're mixing terms-ketosis and ketoacidosis

    Why do humans transport glucose but not sucrose like plants? The reason why plants transport sucrose rather than glucose is due to the fact that it is more efficient and that nearby cells would not take up all the glucose too quickly. Hence the plant convert glucose to sucrose before transporting them throughout the plant. However, why is that humans and other animals all transport glucose in their bloodstreams? Why is it that they do not conver ...

    History Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas gland, one of the glands in the endocrine system.

The pancreas, a gland in the upper abdomen, has cells within it that secrete insulin directly into the bloodstream. An insufficient level ...
