Reintroducing Carbs After Ketosis

Share on facebook

Youll be surprised to hear me say that carbohydrates are the most important thing you can eat for health and weight loss. Why? Because all plant foods are carbohydrates. These are the good, slow carbs youll find in fruits, vegetables, and even nuts and seeds. Slow carbs dont spike your blood sugar or insulin, like carbs from pasta, bread, potatoes or rice. Instead, they fill your body with fiber. And they contain amazing molecules called phytochemicals. Studies show that powerful phytochemicals like glucosinolates, found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, may help reduce your risk of cancer. Most colorful plant foods are full of good, slow carbs. Learn more about all the beneficial things theyll do for your health and your weight.

Slow Carbs, Not Low Carbs: The Truth About Low-carb Diets

The low-carb frenzy hit its zenith in the early 2000’s and has since ebbed and flowed in popularity. I’ve seen patients get impressive results doing very low-carb diets, but eventually many become burned out and regain the weight as the novelty of eating bacon and other formerly forbidden foods becomes monotonous. Traditional thinking suggests carbohydrates are bad for you. I have something surprising to say that might go against everything you’ve heard: Carbs are the single most important thing you can eat for health and weight loss. In fact, I often say my plan is a high-carb diet. But wait, you say, don’t carbs contribute to insulin resistance, heart disease, and other health concerns? Some do, but the truth is more complicated. You see, “carbohydrates” encompasses a huge category. A hot fudge sundae and cauliflower both fall into the “carbs” category, yet they are entirely different foods. In fact, almost all plant foods fall into the carbs category. These are what I refer to as slow carbs, which are low-glycemic and don’t spike your blood sugar or insulin. These slow carbs come loaded with nutrients, fiber, and amazing molecules called phytochemicals. When yo Continue reading >>

Short-term Effects Of Adding Carbs To Very Low-carb Diets

In my last post, I noted that So far, all the negative experiences [from adoption of our diet] I am aware of have come from low-carb dieters who had difficulty after adding carbs and/or cutting protein…. It’s interesting that the same dietary change – adding “safe starches” to a low-carb Paleo diet – made some people feel better and others worse. In thinking about why adding starches can cause short-term trouble for some people, my first thought was a fascinating post from two years ago by Peter Dobromylskyj of Hyperlipid. Peter noted: Bacterial endotoxin is a breakdown product of the cell wall of gram negative bacteria. It’s a lipopolysaccharide and even quite small amounts of it are extremely unpleasant…. Now the scary thing is that eating a high fat meal, probably based on any fat which generates chylomicrons, markedly increases your uptake of endotoxin from your gut, which is obviously full of gram negative bacteria. Eating short chain fatty acids or carbohydrate [1] does not have this effect. Endotoxins are fat-soluble, and so fat carries them into the body. The paper Peter cited actually found an increase in blood endotoxin levels after people were fed a high- Continue reading >>

    Has anyone successfully reintroduced carbs back into their diet and didn't gain back all the weight. I'm just curious, I'm down 40 lbs and debating wether I can introduce carbs back and stay healthy, I know carbs got me fat but I want to see if I can discipline myself to not spiral out of control . I ask cuz I am a church musician, I travel a lot and play gigs everywhere. Sometimes pastors like to take us out to eat and it's hard especially when Hispanic food include bread and tortillas and such . I'm not looking to binge on carbs but eat "regular" without gaining the 40lbs I've lost plus more. Any stories or experiences you guys have?

  2. anbeav

    Yes, people have. Many people transition to a paleo-type approach focusing on complex carbs from vegetables and certain grains. It works for many but if you are the type who has a slippery slope type relationship with carbs be careful and I would really stick to complex carbs and so things like bread and tortillas might be problematic as you never read stories of people falling off the wagon when eating bulgur, it's always simple carbs like bread, tortillas, rice, cake, etc. However, if you can incorporate these foods and maintain a higher carb but still lower carb diet and eat at maintenance you shouldn't regain weight though eating at mainteinance often becomes difficult given the hormonal changes.

    Eating at maintenance TDEE has got to be key.
    I am very afraid of that slippery slope, though.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Which Low-carb Diet Is The Best To Lose Weight? (and Yes, There Are Several)

Various low-carb diets have taken the health and fitness world by storm in the last few years. Suddenly, you can’t mention carbohydrates without a shameful hiss from every dieter in the office. Although there is some misinformation out there, low-carb diets have proven to be effective for losing weight through numerous studies and thousands of happy, successful dieters. The question is: which one is the good one? There are several low-carb diet plans that have similar principles, but are different in their approach to losing weight. Is one better than the rest? If so, how much better? Diets rely on several factors to be effective, including nutritional requirements, simplicity, and convenience. So, if you didn’t even know that there were different kinds of diets, let’s first take a closer look at the most popular low-carb diets and break them down piece by piece. What are the main low-carb diets? The three main low-carb diets out there today are the Atkins, ketogenic and Paleo diets. All three use a decreased carbohydrate intake as one of their foundational building blocks, but they do have their differences when it comes to other nutrients. The Atkins diet, as famed through Continue reading >>

    I have been maintaining great results with my keto diet.
    In a few months I was considering resuming a low to moderate carbohydrate intake.
    The way I have always reintroduced carbs is by increase my daily consumption by 25-50 every week while replacing fat calories with them.
    After I've resumed a 150-200 carb per day diet, I usually will start to increase calories back to maintenance levels.
    I'm just wondering how you guys do it.
    Do you feel the need to slowly step up carb intake or just throw them all back in at once?
    Are there any benefits to what I've traditionally done, or am I just overly cautious about pancreatic stimulation?

    Are there any benefits to what I've traditionally done, or am I just overly cautious about pancreatic stimulation? thats pretty much exactly what i do, and its always worked well for me too. were u doing carb ups as part of a CKD, or just a regular keto diet? if just the regular, then its probably a good idea to introduce them back in slowly as carb digesting enzymes are down-regulated from lack of use and jacking up carb levels too fast might not be a good idea. but if u did some carb ups then itd probably be ok to introduce them a bit faster, but still not all at once. either way, as long as ur still at or under maintenance cal levels, all the carbs in the world wont make u gain fat.
