Keto And Sugar Cravings: What You Need To Know

Keto and Sugar Cravings: What You Need To Know ~ This post contains affiliate links to help you find the products we use. Sugar is your nemesis, but you would probably be surprised to learn how many products in your home right now are loaded with sugar. Being that sugar is such a dangerous drug (yes, I said drug) food manufacturers can’t simply call it by its name. After all, if you know that the products labeled to be healthy are loaded with sugar, you would probably be less likely to put them in your cart. Sugar is everywhere you look, and it might pop up in some surprising places like your cheese or maybe even your all natural Stevia. Did you know that most whole grain bread has at least one form of sugar in it, yes even if they tout “No High Fructose Corn Syrup”? We have a national sweet tooth epidemic. Even if you don’t eat a lot of sugary treats you may experience intense sugar cravings in the first few weeks of the Keto Diet so don’t let it surprise you. Even if you don’t typically eat sugary foods, carbohydrate loaded foods have hidden sugars in them (a carbohydrate is made up of fiber and sugar), and your body will probably experiencing withdrawal at some point Continue reading >>

    Hi. Sorry about all the questions, but I can't find the answer elsewhere on the internet:
    What happens to our blood sugar reading if we are in ketosis and adjusted to fat burning? Will it simply settle on a level and then stop there, or will the ketones we produce naturally raise blood sugar levels?

  2. laup

    usually hovers around 4-5.5mmols BG, sometimes* lower depending on activty
    anything above <0.3mmol ketones u will be in the start of ketosis

    @benjo123456 . . .
    Blood-sugar levels will generally stay a bit lower than what is considered to be "normal", when in dietary Ketosis.
    Gluconeogenesis (release of Glycogen from the liver) will keep the blood-sugar levels up to where the body needs them to be, in the absence of much dietary Carbs.
    The attached file is an excerpt from "The Ketogenic Diet" by Lyle McDonald, a very big and thorough book about the topic. I have found this book extremely useful. If you have lots of questions about the Keto diet then perhaps it's useful to you too? I have the book as a PDF file if you'd like me to send to you. Let me know if so.

All You Need To Know About Carbs On A Low-carb Ketogenic Diet

When it comes to ideal carbs intake, I've discussed it in my post here: How Many Carbs per Day on Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet? However, daily carbs intake is not the only aspect you should focus on. Does our body need carbs? It's a common misconception that our body, especially our brain needs carbs. In fact, the brain can either use glucose or ketones. When you restrict the intake of carbohydrates, your body will switch to using ketone bodies instead of using glucose. Not only that, ketones are a better fuel for our body and brain than glucose, even for highly active individuals. Once you get keto-adapted (3-4 weeks), you will experience improved energy levels. Although a small amount of glucose is still needed, our body can produce glucose on demand via gluconeogenesis. Dr Volek and Dr Phinney, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance (2012): "Ketone bodies are an important lipid-based fuel, especially for the brain, when dietary carbohydrates are restricted." It has been estimated that about 200 grams of glucose can be generated daily just from protein (Dr Briffa, Escape the Diet Trap, 2012). Our body needs some glucose (e.g. for the thyroid health) but according to Dr Vo Continue reading >>

    I want to check with the community as I can't find too much information, the general consensus I can find from google is don't have sugar because sugar is a carb and carbs are anti-ketogenic, but I knew this already.
    But say hypothetically, it's a friday and I have friends round, I've had 2g of carbs in my day so far and I decide to get the tumblers out and make a couple of old fashioneds, I weigh the sugar out to be no more than 8g (of course, I don't think I need to worry about the other ingredients - whisky, angostura bitters and water), say I have two of these that's 16g of sugar. So even if the sugar is 100% carb, I'm still only on an 18g total for my day which is less than my 20g target - is this still going to kick me out of keto?
    I'm just curious because I do love an old fashioned and it's not a sweet drink despite the sugar so I don't know about the insulin response here?
    In short, even if I am below 20g of carbs, can I still not have any sugar?

  2. Pistolfist

    I've been making old fashioneds with stevia and they still taste pretty good!
    I had intended on asking a whisky/whiskey/alcohol related subreddit the question, if an old fashioned still worked with stevia (I mean, you must need like this absolute tiniest amount, right?) but I couldn't think of a decent sub to ask it, I'm only subscribed to /r/whisky and I don't imagine mentioning a cocktail would go down there. I will definitely give it a try though!

  3. RefindingMe

    It's certainly not the best idea to get your day's worth of carbs from straight up sugar, as you should try for natural vegetable sources.
    But if every now and then, you want to let loose with your buddies, it's fine as long as it's the rare exception and not the rule. That many carbs at once may throw you out of ketosis momentarily, but as long as you get back to eating properly as quickly as possible, you should be fine.
    I should point out that if you're still just starting, this will really screw up keto adaptation, so try and wait a month or two before doing this. Your gut will thank you.

    Special diets for type 2 diabetes often focus on weight loss, so it might seem crazy that a high-fat diet is an option. But the ketogenic (keto) diet, high in fat and low in carbs, can potentially change the way your body stores and uses energy, easing diabetes symptoms. With the keto diet, your body converts fat, instead of sugar, into energy. The diet was created in 1924 as a treatment for epilepsy, but the effects of this eating pattern are al ...
