Peter Attia is a relentless self-experimenter, obsessed with the idea of a "quantified self." In the presentation he will share two components of his physical transformation as he evolved from "fit but fat and metabolically deranged" to "fit, lean, and metabolically dialed in." In particular, Peter will focus on the possible advantages of a ketogenic diet, and in the process share much of what he's learned implementing it in himself and hundreds of others over the past two years. Peter is the President and co-founder of the Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI), a California-based 501(c)(3). Peter is also a physician and former McKinsey & Company consultant, where he was a member of both the corporate risk and healthcare practices. Prior to his time at McKinsey, Peter spent five years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a general surgery resident, where he was the recipient of several prestigious awards and the author of a comprehensive review of general surgery. Peter also spent two years at the National Institutes of Health as a surgical oncology fellow at the National Cancer Institute under Dr. Steve Rosenberg, where his research focused on the role of regulatory T cells in cancer re

Ketosis Advantaged Or Misunderstood State? (part I)

Ketosis advantaged or misunderstood state? (Part I) In part I of this post I will see to it (assuming you read it) that youll know more about ketosis than just about anyone, including your doctor or the majority of experts out there writing about this topic. Before we begin, a disclaimer in order: If you want toactuallyunderstand this topic, you must invest the time and mental energy to do so. You really have to get into the details. Obviously, I love the details and probably read 5 or 6 scientific papers every week on this topic (and others). I dont expect the casual reader to want to do this, and I view it as my role to synthesize this information and present it to you.But this is not a bumper-sticker issue. I know its trendy to make blanket statements ketosis is unnatural, for example, or ketosis is superior but such statements mean nothing if you dont understand the biochemistry and evolution of our species. So, lets agree to let the unsubstantiated statements and bumper stickers reside in the world of political debates and opinion-based discussions. For this reason, Ive deliberately broken this post down and only included this content (i.e., background) for Part I. Ketosis is Continue reading >>

    This is a general and interesting article which explains how ketosis works. the bit which alarmed me was about drinking if in ketosis. It also explains why people appear to get drunk quicker - it seems they're not drunk but their brains are short of fuel!
    If the moderators would like to move this post please do. I thought it was of such general interest that it should be here.
    Enjoy!

    DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL IF YOU ARE KETOTIC!
    Alcohol is a powerful inhibitor of gluconeogenesis. In fact, it forces part of the gluconeogenic metabolic process into reverse. This means that if all the glucose in the blood is being derived from gluconeogenesis then the consumption of alcohol will inevitably cause the blood glucose level to fall. Worse still, the alcohol also stops ketone body production, thus leaving the brain entirely without fuel.
    A person who is ketotic is 100% reliant on gluconeogenesis to maintain adequate levels of glucose in the blood. If, under these circumstances alcohol is taken, the person will become disorientated and might lose consciousness, not just from the alcohol, but from low blood sugar. Needless to say, this could be very dangerous, and even fatal.
    Alcohol does not have these effects if the glycogen stores in the liver are normal. Under these circumstances the blood glucose level in the blood is maintained by the breakdown of liver glycogen, a process that is not influenced by alcohol. If a person becomes confused under these circumstances it is due simply to the pharmacological effects of the alcohol!

    OK - but there's a difference between slamming down shots of vodka and having a glass or two of wine.
    I mean - I personally have never noticed a difference - but then I don't drink much.
    Thanks for the article :D

Beyond Weight Loss: A Review Of The Therapeutic Uses Of Very-low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) Diets

European Journal of Clinical Nutrition volume 67, pages 789796 (2013) Very-low-carbohydrate diets or ketogenic diets have been in use since the 1920s as a therapy for epilepsy and can, in some cases, completely remove the need for medication. From the 1960s onwards they have become widely known as one of the most common methods for obesity treatment. Recent work over the last decade or so has provided evidence of the therapeutic potential of ketogenic diets in many pathological conditions, such as diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, acne, neurological diseases, cancer and the amelioration of respiratory and cardiovascular disease risk factors. The possibility that modifying food intake can be useful for reducing or eliminating pharmaceutical methods of treatment, which are often lifelong with significant side effects, calls for serious investigation. This review revisits the meaning of physiological ketosis in the light of this evidence and considers possible mechanisms for the therapeutic actions of the ketogenic diet on different diseases. The present review also questions whether there are still some preconceived ideas about ketogenic diets, which may be presenting unnecessary Continue reading >>

    I'm wondering how people are coping with the stinky smell of ketosis. I'm on a ketogenic low-carb diet -- usually 60g of net carbs or less. I've tested myself with ketostix several times and I can smell the rancid urine smell when I pee.
    The problem here is that my toilet doesn't seem to flush completely and the ketogenic smell stays in the bathroom and even leaks to the living room. My super came in to my apartment once and asked what that smell is, whether I'm flushing my toilet.
    I've been using Lysol before I leave to air out the bathroom but that doesn't seem to be enough. Now, I'm using air fresheners, fragrance refills, and toilet bowl cleaners but I can still smell it when I enter my apartment. Not as bad but the smell is unmistakable.
    How do people deal with this ketogenic smell? It's good that I'm ketogenic. But I can do without the smell.

    my daily carbs is less than 20 grams, and the acetone in my breath is so strong, i swear i can knock out flies LOL
    Not just that, my sweat has a strange smell too.
    I guess we just have to get used to it?
    At least now i know how Paleolithic Cavemen used to smell like lol

    A healthy person on a ketogenic diet, should only be slightly in ketosis according to the keto-sticks. After a couple weeks in ketosis, you should not be having a problem with bad breath or urine. 60g carbs a day is more than enough one should be out of ketosis.
    My guess is you have some other problem. Taking an activated charcoal tablet a day should help with the odor.

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes With Nutritional Ketosis

Virta is a science-based online specialty medical clinic using continuous remote monitoring and intensive coaching to help our patients reverse type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. A unique contributor to our success in this is harnessing and sustaining the metabolic benefits of nutritional ketosis. Admittedly, reversing diabetes is a rather bold goal. By way of contrast, the American Diabetes Association defines type 2 diabetes as a progressive disease whose course at best can be slowed by lifestyle change and medication. Based upon solid sciencesome old and some newwe beg to differ. Perhaps its time for a paradigm change. There are few times in the lives of medical scientists where we have the opportunity to change the course of a major medical disease; and even fewer cases where we actually succeed in doing so. In 1920, Bantings discovery that injected insulin could control type 1 diabetes (T1D) was such an event. As a result, over the last century, millions of people with T1D have achieved long and productive lives; whereas before 1920 most of them would have succumbed to this insulin-deficiency disease within less than a year.

    KETOSIS is a chemical /metabolic state your body is (or isn't!) in. Either your carbs are low enough for your body to be in ketosis, OR NOT. As long as you are in ketosis, your body metabolizes food differently -- it is totally irrelevant whether you are consuming "X" or "Y" number of carbs. In other words, IF you are in ketosis, it doesn't matter how deeply you are in ketosis, or how deeply purple your Ketostix are. You simply ARE or ARE NOT in ketosis.
    Eat too many carbs and your body goes out of ketosis, and changes the way it metabolizes food.
    WHILE IN KETOSIS, you cannot get all the caloric energy out of the food you eat. Fat will only give you 1 (ONE!) calorie of energy, not 9! Protein will give you only 2 calories, not 4; but carbs will still give you the full 4 calories whether or not you are in ketosis.
    So, your Ketostix turn purple because you are in ketosis and producing ketones through your now-inefficient metabolic breakdown of fat. Deeper purple is caused by more ketones, which is caused by eating more fat -- it has absolutely NOTHING to do with changing your body's "level" of ketosis. Remember, you either ARE or ARE NOT in ketosis! THERE ARE NO LEVELS OF KETOSIS, ONLY CONCENTRATIONS OF KETONES, which is entirely dependent upon how much fat you eat.
    So if you are sure you are in ketosis (which you seem to be because your Ketostix are still consistently turning even the palest shade of purple -- which can only happen if you are producing ketones which can only happen if you are in ketosis), then you can only have a limited number of problems (and it isn't ketosis!):
    1. You are simply eating TOO much, too many calories to lose weight! (and it probably is protein).
    2. You are on a plateau, and simply must wait it out.
    3. You are having a "sensitivity" issue that is causing you to retain your weight (probably water). You could be sensitive to anything: milk products, gluten, artificial sweeteners (beware maltitol), medicines, ...
    Three weeks is not an unusually long time for your weight to be stable despite your "best efforts" at losing weight. Review your daily food records and see if there is anything different about the last three weeks. Maybe you can find a clue that way.
    Note: Are you eating maltitol? LOTs of people stall by eating maltitol. "They" say maltitol has "ZERO" effective carbs; but the USDA has research that indicates that maltitol is actually worth "half" its total grams, NOT none of its grams!

    Are your calories too high?
    I have noticed that if my carbs are the right level and I'm in ketosis, that if I see how many calories I've eaten, I'm usually around/over 1500.
    According to Atkins, eating protein/fat is supposed to keep you full so you don't want or need to overeat. I must concur! When I overeat because it tastes so good, but I'm not hungry, I see it in the scale. For me, I've learned 1200-1300 is a good place to be, and 70% fat/30% protein is a good ratio for me (the carbs range from 20-35 when I'm losing).
    Eating after dinner also causes me to stall.

    Tinamarie, are you actually counting your carbs? You may be eating more carbs than you think. I understand that you can register in ketosis with up to 30 net carbs/day, maybe more, but if you're in the induction phase, you only want to be at 20. I am pretty much at that point too. Also, are you exercising. I tend to lose more weight more quickly when I don't exercise. So if you're exercising and doing everything right, just keep it up and know that doing the right thing will get you to where you want to go. I too have been in ketosis for a while and am not losing weight - I work out at least an hour a day at least 5 days/week, so I know I'm getting in better shape and that the weight loss is going slower than it has been. I just keep doing what I'm doing and I know I will reach my goals - just not by the time I had hoped.
