Still, eating too much sodium has many other negative effects on the health besides increasing the blood pressure. Eating a meal that is rich in salt can make you feel weird or uncomfortable. These 4 symptoms are usually felt after eating too much salt. FREQUENT URINATION The need to urinate often usually comes after drinking plenty of water. Did you know that the same happens when you eat too much salt? Consuming lots of salt makes the kidneys work overtime in order to remove it from the body which results in frequent urination. PERSISTENT HEADACHES The BMJ recently published a study that included adults who ate 3,500 mg of sodium every day and adults who took only 1,500 mg.

9 Ketosis Signs In Your Body & Everything About It

9 Ketosis Signs In Your Body & Everything About It 9 Ketosis Signs In Your Body & Everything About It By Saba Ahmad, Post updated on 2018/05/09 at 5:20 PM Ketosis is the phenomena in which our body metabolizes fat instead of carbohydrates to produce ketones, which is further used by our cells to provide the energy to perform their normal functions. Ketosis is the metabolic state of the body where the blood contains ketones, typically above a range of 0.5mmol/L. In ketosis, your body metabolizes its fat stores for energy. You enter ketosis when your body doesnt have enough glucose (carbohydrates) available. Ketones are byproducts of the body breaking down fat for energy that occurs when carbohydrate intake is low. While a lot of people follow the ketogenic diet , their purpose is to bring the body into a state of ketosis, which is high fat, adequate protein, and low carb. When we cut the intake of carbs in our body, the glucose and glycogen levels in our body decrease, which decreases the blood sugar and insulin levels. That is when our body needs other fuel sources and burning of fat comes into the picture. Ketosis breaks down fats for fuelling energy into the body the process of Continue reading >>

    Hey all, So I began this Keto diet over 1 month ago and the results have been FANTASTIC! I have lost 35 pounds! (M/6'1 Sw: 245 CW: 210 GW: 180) I have been extremely happy with myself now and its all thanks to you guys. Sadly though yesterday while checking my ketosticks i saw blood in my urine and after a 7 hour ER visit I was told by the doctor that I had passed a kidney stone and gotten a UTI from it as well. I have never had a kidney stone in my life or any major health problems (aside from being overweight). The doctor told me to get off my diet until I can see an urologist to find out why I have a kidney stone. The thing is the next available appointment is not for a long time since I work 2 jobs. So I have done a bit of research and a side effect of being in ketosis is kidney stones (from random online website).
    So my questions to r/keto is 1. How often does this happen? 2. Is this Research Valid Online? 3. Where do I go from here?
    I still want to continue keto for the next 30 more pounds.
    P.S. I do not want this post to discourage anyone from trying keto, EVERYONE'S body is different.

    Higher protein intake increases the calcium absorption in the gut, and consequently increases the calcium excreted in the urine. Ketosis increases the need to balance blood pH as ketones are acidifying, one way the body likely does this i by increasing calcium leaching from the bones, this also increases urine calcium excretion.
    Increased calcium levels in the urine increases the risk of calcium-oxalate stone formation.
    Excretion of ketones in the urine increases urine acidity, as does the increased excretion of uric acid (can lead to supersaturation, the uric acid can't dissolve and form crystals).
    Increased urine acidity increases the risk of kidney stone formation, lower levels of citrate in the urine also increases the risk of stone formation.
    Paul over at perfecthealthdiet.com has an article on kidney stones and carb restriction, "Dangers of Zero-Carb Diets, IV: Kidney Stones".
    Generally the best way to counter this is to eat more vegetables, most have a negative potential renal acid load (PRAL), which means they'll reduce the acidity of urine (here's a list of foods and their PRAL score). Even calcium rich foods can help as the calcium will bind to oxalate (chelation) in the gut and prevent absoption.
    Increased water intake also helps as it balances the urine pH and prevents supersaturation (through dilution) as you pee more, in general dehydration is a common risk factor for stone formation.
    Another more drastic way to reduce calcium excretion, reduce urine acidity, and increase urine excretion of citrates, is to supplement with potassium citrate. It's been tested in epilepsy studies and resulted in a very high reduction in stone formation incidents (0.9% of patients compared to the 25% Paul mentions in his article):
    Successful empiric administration of Polycitra K at KD onset resulted in a kidney-stone incidence of 0.9% (1 of 106) compared with administration only because of hypercalciuria, 6.7% (13 of 195; P = .02).
    McNally MA, et al. "Empiric use of potassium citrate reduces kidney-stone incidence with the ketogenic diet." Pediatrics. 2009 Aug;124(2):e300-4. Epub 2009 Jul 13.
    You probably need to talk to your doctor about that as potassium is usually limited to ~99 mg for OTC tablets.
    Anecdotaly another thing sometimes used is sodium (or potassium) bicarbonate, as it also reduces urine acidity. I haven't seen any studies on it, but WebMD has some articles on it, "Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) for Kidney Stones". It's probably a good idea to discuss this with your doctor before starting taking any.

    I had kidney stones about 3 years ago and from what I understand is that there are two different types. Calcium stones and uric acid stones.
    Calcium stones are more often than not a result of not enough fluid intake or an over abundance of calcium in your diet. Were talking multiple Tums a day, a wheel of cheese, gallons of cream - for most people. Others can just be an increase in calcium intake that the body is not used to. Such as going from little to no calcium intake, to hitting well over the suggested daily amount. This could very well be the case with you.
    From what I understand as well, uric acid stones are likely hereditary.
    At the end of the day, no, your keto diet is not the cause of your Kidney stones.
    Personally, I would never wish the pain of a kidney stone onto my worst enemy. So your best course of action is to be sure you're drinking plenty of water. Make sure your pee is always crystal clear. Increase your magnesium intake, either via supplements or more easily, eat an avocado every day. You also have to make sure you supplement your magnesium with calcium. This sounds counterintuitive to what I just stated, but the two work in conjunction with each other ( i dont know the exact science of it). I would suggest chewing on 1 or 2 Tums a day (depending on how much cheese and other dairy products you're already eating).
    Hope this helps!

How Do You Know You're In Ketosis?

You may notice these signs before you start losing weight. Ketosis kinda sounds like the medical term for bad breath, but its actually what the keto in keto diet stands for. And, if you follow the keto diet or are interested in it, getting your body into ketosis is what youre going for. In case youre not familiar with keto, its a diet that is very high in fat and low in carbs. The goal is to get yourself into a state called ketosis , which requires eating less than 30 to 40 grams of carbs a day, explains Alissa Rumsey , R.D., C.S.C.S. When you only eat a very limited amount of carbs, your body breaks down fatty acids from your fat stores and forms ketones, which are released into the bloodstream by the liver, Rumsey says. Ketosis occurs when blood ketones are higher than normal. When this happens, your body also starts using fat for fuelhence, the results that celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Vanessa Hudgens have raved about it . Only one problem: How do you actually know if you're in ketosis? Experts say there are six big signs and symptoms you should look forbesides the weight loss you'll probably be super-tuned-into. Speaking of halitosis... It's unfortunate, but true: Continue reading >>

    long time lurker, first time poster. i've been doing keto for about a week and a half now and been thinking deeply about everything i've seen (i'm in the life sciences too, so i've been endlessly fascinated)
    what do you guys think about this: the logic behind keto makes sense to me, and i've already lost some pounds. but i have some questions

    does research suggest following a keto diet will cause weight loss up until a certain body fat % is reached? or is the period where weight loss ceases arbitrary? (my experience says things are rarely arbitrary)

    if it does stop at a certain BF% (or other body stat), atkins (later stages) seems to make sense as the logical next time, no? that way, if you so desire, reintroducing carbs would be ok.
    i guess what i'm trying to figure out is maybe.. keto = excess fat loss and healthy diet, with fibrous carbs in moderation, with decent exercise = weight maintenance
    i'd love to hear your thoughts or share your anecdotes or anything!

    It seems like the increased volume of food (and decreased calorie density) makes people eat a more "sensible" amount of food on Low Carb diets:
    Patients spontaneously reduced their mean energy intake to approximately 2200 kcal/d, which is approximately the caloric intake of normal-weight individuals with the same height as our patients.
    Boden G, et al. "Effect of a Low-Carbohydrate Diet on Appetite, Blood Glucose Levels, and Insulin Resistance in Obese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes". Ann Intern Med. 2005 Mar 15;142(6):403-11.
    Even so it usually takes around a 15% higher caloric deficit to lose a pound of fat than it does to put it on, here's a table. Taken from:
    Wells JC, Siervo M. "Obesity and energy balance: is the tail wagging the dog?". Eur J Clin Nutr. 2011 Jul 20. doi: 10.1038/ejcn.2011.132. [Epub ahead of print]
    It's likely that your body has evolved a way to balance the intake when you eat food that has a proper energy density. When we have processed food that's very energy dense, but not all that filling, we tend to overeat (from a study that let people eat as much vending machine food as they wanted):
    Ad libitum intake resulted in a 7-d overfeeding of 6468 +/- 3824 kJ/d above weight-maintenance requirements, leading to a 2.3 +/- 1.2-kg gain.
    Rising R, et al. "Food intake measured by an automated food-selection system: relationship to energy expenditure". Am J Clin Nutr. 1992 Feb;55(2):343-9.
    Translated to calories that's between 631 to 2459 (1545 +/- 914) kcal extra per day. Compare that to the low carb diet where people spontaneously reduced their intake to a level appropriate for their natural weight/height. Stephan Guyenet has a really nice write up on how people react to refined carbs called "Humans on a Cafeteria Diet ", a short but very interesting read.
    A maintenance diet with carbs is probably not a problem as long as you avoid the refined carbs and sugars, the Kitavans eat 70% carbs (including fruit) and are very healthy.

    Optimal health calls for around 4700mg of potassium per day. The average American may hit half of this, while those on a LCHF diet likely struggle to cross 3000mg even when mindful. Some theorize that most cases of hypertension may actually be due to a potassium deficiency (along with Mg, Ca, and possibly vitamin D, vitamin K2) as opposed to sodium surplus.
    It is very difficult to hit this potassium goal on a ketogenic diet. As I crunch numbers I'm seeing it's next to impossible. For those who track their intake, how are you hitting your potassium goals? I can approach 4700 with the addition of cold potatoes (a resistance starch; 1600mg K, at ~50 net carbs) and lentil beans (~ 700 mg at ~20 net carbs). (Spinach, almonds, eggs, meats, and avocados provide the remainder). While I could remain below 100g carbs a day without a problem, I would likely no longer achieve ketosis, even with the daily intermittent fasting and resistance training. Any thoughts?
    For what it's worth, I was hardcore keto for about 2 years but ventured into more of TKD (targeted ketogenic) approach when I noticed my workouts suffering along with the cold hands/feet and sleep problems. That said, not sure if I have really been in ketosis during this period since I have not measured blood ketone levels.
