What Everybody Ought To Know About Ketosis

Recently I wanted to explore the world of Ketosis. I thought I knew a little bit about ketosis, but after doing some research I soon realised how wrong I was. 3 months later, after reading numerous books, listening to countless podcasts and experimenting with various diets I know have a sound understanding of ketosis. This resource is built as a reference guide for those looking to explore the fascinating world of ketosis. It is a resource that I wish I had 3 months ago. As you will soon see, a lot of the content below is not mine, instead I have linked to referenced to experts who have a greater understanding of this topic than I ever will. I hope this helps and if there is something that I have missed please leave a comment below so that I can update this. Also, as this is a rather long document, I have split it into various sections. You can click the headline below to be sent straight to the section that interests you. For those that are really time poor I have created a useful ketosis cheat sheet guide. This guide covers all the essential information you should know about ketosis. It can be downloaded HERE. Alternatively, if you're looking for a natural and sustainable way to Continue reading >>

    Sorry if this doesn't belong in this part of the forum, but it seems better here than the other places in the forum.
    I am having trouble finding a solid answer to this. Everywhere I look online tells me something different. I see some say around 50 mg/dl which I would think is totally hypoglycemic. So I don’t really believe that. I see others saying as long as you are below about 97 mg/dl. I see others that say in the 80s. Some say other things. I just want a straight answer. So I need some advice from a successful keto person.
    What is proper blood glucose levels for someone who is in ketosis? I got this blood glucose monitor and I think it may be defective or just a crappy brand. Yesterday my fasting blood glucose (after a 14 hour fast) was 83 mg/dl. Today (again after a 14 hour fast) was 97. I couldn’t believe it so I took my blood glucose again and it said 92. Then I ate exactly 3 pieces of bacon and a piece of cheese, and two hours later my blood glucose was 102. I thought WTF, so I immediately took it again and it said 109.
    So maybe I have a defective monitor (the Nova Max Plus), but regardless, there is probably at least a little bit of truth to it. But I seriously eat 25 grams or less of carbs per day. Usually less.
    Could someone please explain glucose levels to me in regards to ketosis.

    In the absence of dietary carbohydrates, your body will break down fats and proteins to maintain your blood glucose in the normal range. Here's an explanation:

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 regression and other immune-based therapies for cancer. Peter is a 2012/2013 recipient of the French-American Foundation Young Leader's Fellowship, which recognizes the most promising leaders under 40.

Ketosis – Advantaged Or Misunderstood State? (part I)

As The Eating Academy approaches its first birthday in about a month, I figured it was as good a time as any to put together some thoughts on a subject I get asked about with great frequency. (For those wondering when I’ll get to Part X of The Straight Dope on Cholesterol, the answer is, “hopefully before the end of the year.”) A few months ago I was planning a post along the lines of “the 10 things you need to know about ketosis,” but I’m now thinking that might be putting the proverbial cart before the horse. So, let’s start with a more fundamental set of questions. In part I of this post I will see to it (assuming you read it) that you’ll 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 to actually understand 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 don’t expect the casual reader to want to do this, and I view it as my role to synthesize this inf Continue reading >>

    I need help. Glucose levels on Ketosis

    Hi. Please help me if you can.
    I am a 33 year old woman diagnosed with Policystic Ovarie Syndrome, which among other things makes me insensitive to my own insulin (pre-diabetic)
    I have been doing Keto for 3 weeks and my kestostix haven't turned to the lightest shade of pink. I haven't lost any fat.
    I read an article by Jon Deprospo http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/keto.htm in which he says that if you are in Ketosis, your blood glucose level should be between 50-60 mg/dl. I checked with my glucometer and found out that my glucose was 86mg/dl.
    My doctor advised me to stay on Keto, not on CKD (no refeeds) since I am hiperinsulinic.
    My question is if you are in ketosis, what should your glucose level be?.
    PD: I wanted to mention that I train with weights everyday (for amost 1 1/2 month) and do 20 minutes cardio everyday.

    Can you post your diet? Sometimes there are small things that can keep you out of ketosis, and it's a lot easier to learn from other people's experience.

    Eileen thank you for your concern.
    My bodyweight is 136 pounds 20%body fat. I started taking 1496 calories intake. 30% protein 10% Carbs 60% Fat. Divided in 5 mini meals / day. I had no progress, so I lowered my calories to 1300/day with the same ratios. Didn't work either. Lowered calories to 1000 and nothing.
    Last night I changed the ratios to 80% Fat and 20% protein. I am trying to induce ketosis. I just checked my glucose and it is down to 73md/dl (fasting level this morning 71mg/dl ), so I guess that this is helping. As soon as I am sure I am in ketosis I will change the ratios and make sure I am getting enough protein. I know I am not supposed to have less that 1200 calories/day to avoid starvation mode, but since my metabolism is not working properly, I might just give it a try.
    I am currently taking 1000mcg metformin 3 times/day. 75mcg T-3 (prescribed by my Doctor).
    Thanks again for your help,
    Eve

Here we show users how to set up the meter for the very first time after delivery. The FED BGM II Blood Glucose Meter is demonstrated, the battery is inserted and the time and date are set to allow the memory function to work. The display scale for blood glucose is selected, users are shown how to select either mmol/l or G/dl for the display of blood glucose levels and get the blood glucose meter ready to do a first blood sugar level test. http://www.valuemed.co.uk/acatalog/FE...

Doing Keto? Consider Buying A Blood Glucose Meter

The amount of glucose in your blood at any given time can give you valuable insights into how your body is reacting to the food you eat. If you’re doing a keto-based diet, the data you get from a glucose meter will help you optimize your eating for maximum weight loss! The premise of a keto-based diet is simple: Keep the carbs as low as possible so that your body is forced to get glucose (energy) from fat, rather than carbs. Any sort of glycemic reaction could cause a weight-loss stall for several days. Not sure what a Keto diet is, or want to learn more about it? I talk about what a keto diet is, and the pros and cons of this approach, in this blog article. What is a glycemic reaction? In short, a glycemic reaction is what happens when you eat carbs. It’s a fancy name for an even fancier process. Effectively, when you eat carbs, your body produces a hormone called “insulin” which is responsible for delivering the glucose (the energy from your the carbs you just ate) to the muscle cells in your body. In a keto-based diet, you want to avoid the production of insulin at all costs. Not because insulin itself is bad — but because it means you’ve short-circuited the keto pro Continue reading >>

    Hi everyone, I've been doing keto since 20/2/17 so 8 weeks now. I started monitoring my ketone levels about 18/3/17 and have been in ketosis every time. However, I notice that sometimes after I eat my ketone levels go up. For instance this morning before breakfast my blood ketone were 3.2. After breakfast they were 4.6 and 2 hours after they were 4.1. Does this suggest I am eating too much protein? I'm not sure how to interpret this.

    Also, my glucose levels before breakfast were 4.4. After breakfast, 4.69, 2 hours after 4.6. I realise that this isn't in a diabetic range but the fact that it seems to be taking me 3 hours after a meal to return to base rate indicates that I do have metabolic disfunction. I read Jason Fung's book 'obesity code' and in that he suggests that fasting enables one to reduce resting glucose levels and improve spike lengths. Has anyone else been able to achieve this?

  2. MarkGossage

    4.4-4.69-4.6 that is well with the 15% variability of your meter if you are in the UK so your readings could all have been 4.5.
    If your bloods had gone from 4.4 to 8.0 then you may have a problem . There's nothing wrong with those levels be pleased.
    If your ketone levels went below 0.5 then there is a chance you were coming out of nutritional ketosis. Your readings are great!
    Don't sweat you are doing fine..

  3. gnomesb

    thanks Mark. I'm in Australia. So 15% variance between fasting reading and post-eating reading is the general rule of thumb then. Thanks. I don't test all the time, just today I thought I would do a test over the whole day to see variances, I was just a little suprised by what I saw. Thank you for the reassurance.
