While traditional treatment has involved counseling individuals to restrict calories and make lifestyle changes, such as eating a nutrient-dense diet, participating in regular physical activity, and other behavior modifications, many people classified as severely obese (BMI of 40 or greater) are still unable to lose and maintain significant weight loss. In the United States, more than one-third of adults aged 20 and older are classified as being obese (BMI of 30 or greater).1 It’s been estimated that the rate of severe obesity is rapidly increasing. Between 2000 and 2005, obesity rates rose 24%; the obesity rates among those with a BMI of 40 or greater and a BMI of 50 or greater have risen by 50% and 75%, respectively.2 These climbing rates show traditional weight-loss modalities have failed to provide long-term solutions. In fact, studies have found that bariatric surgery Continue reading >>

    Jacque- I'd love to know the answer to this question, too! Years ago when I first started taking (lots of) meds for hypertension, I had that taste in my mouth all the time! I was pretty ill at the time, and was losing weight like crazy (ended up at 118, which is small for me). Just generally unwell due to adjustments to meds. I asked the doctor about it several times, and he didn't have an answer (except to treat me as if it was all in my imagination)... Eventually adjusted, and started feeling well again, but from time to time the taste comes back for a few days. I always thought it was related to the meds, but now I wonder if it might be related to the rapid weight loss, change in foods, or as you mentioned-ketosis... Hmmm, it will be interesting to hear what others think... Thanks for bringing it up. Tess.....

    It probably is ketosis. Some CADers get into ketosis better than they ever did on Atkins due to the control of insulin. Remember, CAD fools your body that the carbs at RM aren't there.

Capsaicin, Cold Thermogenesis, Keto Cooking Tips, Getting To Know Ben Greenfield & Much More!

I am writing this guest post after returning from a week in the backwoods of Idaho fishing with Ben Greenfield and his twin 9 year old sons. Yep, I’m the same dude featured in Ben’s recent podcast “A $17,000 Whole Body Healing Machine, Fish Oil Overdoses From Giant Steelhead, Eating Bones, Killing Tumors With Ketosis & More!“ So who am I, exactly? My name is Christopher Claunch (also known on social media as “@gunsandduns“). I spent 18 years in the restaurant business, and I currently own a sporting goods store in Hagerman, ID. I side hustle as a digital marketing consulting for outdoors entrepreneurs, I recently started a podcast bridging the gap between recreation and technology, and I’m also an avid fly fisherman and bowhunter. I love to teach people to fly cast and share my experiences with others, especially children. And after the intense time I experienced with Ben last month (which you’re about to read about), I decided that when I grow up, I want to be just like Ben. Anyways, I submitted this guest post to Ben because I wanted to share some valuable lessons I learned watching Ben apply his own exercise and diet practices (including plenty of pullups from pr Continue reading >>

Metal Taste In Mouth: Every Cause, Every Solution

Is a metal taste in your mouth driving you mad? A metal taste in the mouth is no laughing matter, as it can sometimes seem as though you’ve been sucking on a block of iron. Though a metallic taste in the mouth can sometimes easily be explained by a recent nosebleed, there are other instances of metal taste in the mouth that have no apparent cause, and thus, no apparent solution. I asked Dr. Steven Y. Park, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), New York Medical College, and author of the book, “Sleep, Interrupted: A physician reveals the #1 reason why so many of us are sick and tired,” to name all the possible causes of a metallic taste in the mouth. Once you know what’s causing this very unpleasant situation with your mouth, you’ll know what the solutions are. Medications can cause a metallic taste in the mouth, but what prescription drugs are most likely to cause this? Dr. Park: One of the most common medications is azithromycin or clarithromycin, or any of the macrolide antibiotics. Chemotherapy and anesthesia medications can do this as well. Can supplements be a culprit? Certain vitamins, especially those containing calcium or iron, Continue reading >>

    I've switched to low carbs 2 days ago. Since yesterday I've been feeling this tingling (can't think of a better word) all over my body, like little ants crawling under my skin. Is this related to ketosis? I don't have any other symptoms so I don't know whether I'm in ketosis or not.

  2. samhigh

    I had a friend who felt tingling sensations in her hands and feet after starting a new strength training routine.
    You didn't make any change in supplements or exercise; just reduction of carbs? Are you sleeping solidly through the night?
    No reason for alarm at this point, just continue to monitor and make sure you are eating enough calories and getting proper sleep. Should remedy itself in a few days, if not call your doctor and inquire.

    I don't believe you supposed to feel "tingling" when in ketosis.
    First I recommend making your diary public.
    On assumptions I'll say:
    Tingling is usually associated with cardiovascular anomalies, you might want to consult your doctor and switch your diet back to a balanced one.
    If your profile picture is a true picture of yourself, then I don't understand why you're doing a low carbs diet. You look great already. I would also suggest changing your perspective on "low carb" to "high lean protein" if your dieting.
    I'm not an expert by any means but the tingling may also come from under eating.
