What Is Ketosis?

"Ketosis" is a word you'll probably see when you're looking for information on diabetes or weight loss. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? That depends. Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis can become dangerous when ketones build up. High levels lead to dehydration and change the chemical balance of your blood. Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping you burn fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscle. For health 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

The signs and symptoms of diabetes, particularly of type-2 diabetes, can frequently become quite subtle and can, even for some years, be easily associated with additional circumstances which happen to many of us on occasion. However, now with a great deal of information available on those tell-tale signs, it can be becoming simpler to be on the alert with the factors that may need a trip to your doctor for a check-up. One of the first indication of diabetes is usually a condition known as polydipsia. This is the medical term for excessive thirst. In case you are always thirsty and your mouth still feels dry despite one has had a beverage, this is just another indication every one might not be well. The trouble which accompanies constant thirst is polyuria, which is the frequent need to pee. Excessively you happen to be passing more greatly urine than you ever once did, then this is an additional reason why perhaps an appointment with the doctor would be a good option. Providing you keep in mind the fact that a typical adult urinates between one and two litres each day, with polyuria that amount could be more than three litres every day ? it's not that you are usually expected to measure it, however you can?t help noticing that you must keep running for the loo. Do you find yourself always hungry? Everyone gets hungry as soon as they havent eaten for around five hours, however if you simply find you are starving again immediately after eating, then this may indicate that your particular body is unable to convert the glucose inside your blood into energy. This energy deficiency is what is offering you those ravenously hungry signals. This disorder also has got a medical name; it is called polyphagia. If you ever think your hunger pangs are excessive, dont be reticent about mentioning the trouble for your personal doctor. Polyphagia is actually a well-recognized condition and really should be taken into account in summing increase the dependence on further investigations. Fatigue is usually a classic symptom of diabetes. Everyone feels jaded or perhaps a bit exhausted sometimes however in many cases after having a good rest or possibly a sound nights sleep, an effect disappears. If your tiredness remains even after sleep, this might point to diabetes. Weight-loss generally is a tricky symptom to recognize. If you might be aware of type-2 diabetes, you might also be attempting to lose weight. In cases like this, once the scales register a loss you will then be content with your time and efforts. However, if you are not doing anything which could be likely to trigger weight reduction but you are generally reducing your weight, then this may prove to be an indication of diabetes. The reason this happens is usually that the body is being starved of glucose and it has started to use stored fat for energy. If you're not carrying excess fat, then muscle will be used when sufficient glucose isn't available. Eyes suffer from diabetes and whenever you have a sudden changes in your eyesight or discover that your vision is blurred this is an important reason to see your optician. An eyesight test will reveal if you find an excuse for an appointment with your doctor to create further investigations. This would never be put-off or ignored the sooner you have help the better. Cuts, burns, scratches and other skin abrasions should begin to heal reasonably quickly in any healthy person. If you discover that you do have a wound which happens to be taking a lot longer to heal than usual then this is usually a sign that high glucose levels are resulting in poor circulation and allowing it to be tougher for blood to reach and repair your injury. It's a good plan to have this checked because if ignored it can lead to the wound becoming infected. Another unpleasant symptom of diabetes is yeast infection. This tends to cause irritation which in turn affects the soft tissue linings of the tracts of the body including the mouth or genital areas. These conditions may also be brought on by having taken antibiotics but when there are other symptoms present there is a likelihood that this yeast infection is down to diabetes. These are the basic most often presented signs and symptoms of diabetes. It is necessary not to ignore them ? the quicker you have a diagnosis the better.

Ketosis Symptoms

10 Signs and Symptoms That You’re in Ketosis On a ketogenic diet, your glucose levels fall, lipase (pancreatic enzyme) releases stored triglycerides, fatty acids travel to the liver and your liver produces ketones. Ketones are a source of energy, when the body utilizes fat stores for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Ketogenic diets are becoming increasingly popular for weight loss and energy and consist of low-carbs, no processed foods, and high fats. This change in diet provides a new fuel source for your cells, which causes your body to undergo biological adaptations such as reduced insulin and increased fat breakdown. When this happens, your liver starts producing large amounts of ketones to supply energy for your brain. However, it can often be hard to know whether you’re “in ketosis” or not. Here are 10 common signs and symptoms of ketosis: 1. Bad Breath You may experience stinky breath once you reach full ketosis. In the process, you may actually report a fruity smell but a weird taste when you first begin to produce ketones. This is caused by elevated ketone levels. The specific culprit is acetone, a ketone that exits the body in your urine and breath.While this side e Continue reading >>

    No signs of ketosis for 9 days

    Hi, everyone.
    Sorry if my english is too bad.
    I have a question. I'm on keto diet for 9 days. All my friends and all the people who were in ketosis are saying that their urine, sweat or breath smells like acetone. Some say ammonia but this is because of the protein usage.
    So...for 9 days I'm eating under 25 grams of carbs, but I'm not showing any signs of ketosis. My breath, urine and sweat smell is like it was before. I have plenty of energy. I'm 2kg. down for now but that's because the emptied glycogen, lost water and caloric deficit.
    My question is: Am I the only person who don't feel any side effects of ketosis? Is there any chance that i'm not in ketosis? I think not but why I'm not feeling any different. I didn't felt bad even for one day.
    Unfortunately, I can't find keto stix in my town and I have to rely on my senses. That's why I'm asking here.
    I know for some reasons why my urine isn't smelling:
    1. I'm using all of the ketones and there are no in excess to be urinated. Is that even possible. I have to urinate the acetone if not any other couse it's toxic, right?
    2. It's because I drink too much water. I drink about 4 liters a day.
    Any other reasons?
    Well...this was a large post. Sorry for that. Thanks for helping in advance.

    do a proper search on this forum, you will see you arent the only one.
    in short, eat under 20g carbs a day, dont cheat or accidentally eat carbs in things like sauces, coffee creamer, etc and you are in ketosis.
    dont worry. not everyone shows signs of if.
    take body measurements and weigh yourself.
    track your progress.

Ketosis: What Is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a normal metabolic process. When the body does not have enough glucose for energy, it burns stored fats instead; this results in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body. Some people encourage ketosis by following a diet called the ketogenic or low-carb diet. The aim of the diet is to try and burn unwanted fat by forcing the body to rely on fat for energy, rather than carbohydrates. Ketosis is also commonly observed in patients with diabetes, as the process can occur if the body does not have enough insulin or is not using insulin correctly. Problems associated with extreme levels of ketosis are more likely to develop in patients with type 1 diabetes compared with type 2 diabetes patients. Ketosis occurs when the body does not have sufficient access to its primary fuel source, glucose. Ketosis describes a condition where fat stores are broken down to produce energy, which also produces ketones, a type of acid. As ketone levels rise, the acidity of the blood also increases, leading to ketoacidosis, a serious condition that can prove fatal. People with type 1 diabetes are more likely to develop ketoacidosis, for which emergency medical treatment is required to av Continue reading >>
