Lactic Acidosis And Exercise: What You Need To Know

Muscle ache, burning, rapid breathing, nausea, stomach pain: If you've experienced the unpleasant feeling of lactic acidosis, you likely remember it. It's temporary. It happens when too much acid builds up in your bloodstream. The most common reason it happens is intense exercise. Symptoms The symptoms may include a burning feeling in your muscles, cramps, nausea, weakness, and feeling exhausted. It's your body's way to tell you to stop what you're doing The symptoms happen in the moment. The soreness you sometimes feel in your muscles a day or two after an intense workout isn't from lactic acidosis. It's your muscles recovering from the workout you gave them. Intense Exercise. When you exercise, your body uses oxygen to break down glucose for energy. During intense exercise, there may not be enough oxygen available to complete the process, so a substance called lactate is made. Your body can convert this lactate to energy without using oxygen. But this lactate or lactic acid can build up in your bloodstream faster than you can burn it off. The point when lactic acid starts to build up is called the "lactate threshold." Some medical conditions can also bring on lactic acidosis, inc Continue reading >>

    I apologize if this was posted and answered before. I did a quick search and couldn't find anything.
    My question is, if I've been doing well for a while and am in ketosis, does cheating for a day immediately kick me out of ketosis, and if so, how long does it take to get back? I've noticed that, after a particularly weak-willed weekend, it takes me two or three days to feel normal again, so it made me wonder if that had a correlation to ketosis. I won't pretend to know exactly how ketosis works, so if my question is stupid, forgive me.

    Re: Ketosis and cheating
    Before googling I would have said: I think I'd read somewhere that it could take "up to a week".
    After googling: Typically "2-3 days" but "it varies".
    Someone may chime in with a better answer

    Re: Ketosis and cheating
    Okay, this is the one that makes the most sense to me: When you reduce your carb intake, your body manufactures enzymes that can metabolize fat. When it's up and running, you finally feel better. That can take a few weeks, but it's worth it.
    When you ingest carbs, you may no longer have enough enzymes to do it efficiently. So, back to the furnace to make more! You're no longer in ketosis and have to go through the process all over again.
    Now, I'm not a nutritionist and that's overly simplified, and quite possibly in error. Somebody may come up with a better explanation.
