Is The Ketogenic Diet Acidic?

One of the most common misconceptions with the ketogenic diet is that it makes the body overly acidic. While it is possible to make a ketogenic diet acidic, it is not inherently acidic and in fact may be alkaline forming. Much of this concern is rooted in our understanding of ketoacidosis, a harmful physiological condition associated with type I diabetics ( 1 ). But is a ketogenic diet acidic, or do we need to update our understanding of the metabolism? Using the ketogenic diet clinically for many years, I have become well versed with the nuances of ketone metabolism. A ketogenic diet in a healthy person is dramatically different from ketoacidosis. In fact, one might say they could be considered opposites as one is a powerful healer while the other is potentially life threatening. A ketogenic diet is one that trains the body to burn fat , instead of sugar, as its primary energy source. This happens by consuming most of your calories from fat sources, while strictly limiting the amount of carbohydrates that you consume in a given day. Once the body realizes that there has been a drop in insulin and that there is not an abundant supply of sugar to be burned as energy, it shifts its Continue reading >>

    Hi All,
    I thought I'd break the trend of mono diets in this sub-forum and post my weight loss results from my ketogenic diet. For those who don't know, a keto diet is high in fat, moderate in protein and very low in carbohydrates. I have been experimenting and getting to grips with keto dieting for a couple of months, trying to figure out what works for me and what doesn't. Now that the holidays are out of the way I have gotten into the groove of things and am having a steady weight loss. Officially started doing keto properly after new year, when I weighed in at 186.6lbs. In the first week I lost 8 lbs.
    This thread is for everyone who is interested in keto dieting and wants to see how well it works in someone else. I could not find a thread like this in this sub-forum so decided to embark on my own n=1 experiment. I invite you to comment, ask questions and engage! This is as much your thread as it is mine.
    The STATS:
    21 years old, female
    Height: 6ft 1" (yes, really!)
    HW: 186.6 lbs (as of 28/12/13)
    CW: 179.8 lbs (as of 21/01/14)
    UWG: 138 lbs
    The DIET:
    LCHF with intermittent fasting. <1000 cals/day. Due to fainting at work all the time I now split my one meal a day into two, with one in the morning and another in the evening. There is no exercise involved. I take Irwin's natural carb blockers for social events and dinner parties aka emergencies. I also take a multivitamin with iron and a cod liver oil supplement every morning.
    I don't intend to post my food diary here. Just my weight, thoughts, how I'm feeling re energy levels etc, and musings of day to day cray cray. But if you are interested to see what I eat, add me on MFP. Username: LakeyLiu
    The GOAL:
    1. To reach my UGW by 25 July 2014 (when my summer starts). That's about 40lbs in 7 months. Roughly 6 pounds a month - sounds doable!
    2. To get my BMI out of the 20s by may 29 (birthday). That's 149 lbs.
    Target weights by end of...
    Feb = 169 lbs - achieved 28.2.14
    Mar = 162 lbs
    Apr = 155 lbs
    May = 148 lbs
    Jun = 141 lbs
    Jul = 138 lb
    Jan: -12.2 lbs (174.4 lbs)
    Feb: -5.4 lbs (total loss 17.6 lbs)
    Mar: -3.4lbs (total loss 21 lbs)
    Common questions asked:
    What is the keto diet?
    The keto diet advocates a high fat, moderate protein and low carb protein. Carbohydrate stores in the muscles and liver, and easily accessible carbohydrates called "sugars" in the blood, are the first resources used by the body for energy so it may continue to function. When this carbohydrate resource is used up that is when the body looks elsewhere for its fuel - the body fat. By already depriving the body of carbohydrates, the body is forced to tap into its fat fuel and burn it for energy. This is the logic upon which the keto diet works on. There is a wealth of information available on the internet about keto dieting but two websites which I think sum it up nicely are :
    This is not the same as the Atkins diet.
    Although similar, the Atkins diet suggests you may eat as much as you want without calorie counting and still lose weight. It also pushes a lot of processed, manufactured atkins products whereas a keto diet encourages use of more natural ingredients as much as possible, however this is not an absolute rule.
    How much fat/protein/carbs do I need to eat per day?
    On a keto diet your calorie intake, whatever it may be, should consist of 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% fat.
    Do I need to exercise?
    This is your personal choice. However it is not vital in order to lose weight on this diet.
    I feel like crap. Why is that and how do I get over it?
    Keto flu - the induction period of the diet. Your body is getting used to the change of using fat instead of carbohydrates for fuel. Some people may feel more tired, unable to concentrate, achy, irritable etc. This is only a temporary phase and can last anywhere from a few days to 4 weeks depending on how strictly one follows keto and the individual's own body. This stage will pass and many report having more energy than ever and feeling overall great about themselves! So don't give in, perservere.
    Any recipe ideas appropriate to keto?
    I'm experiencing a plateau...help!
    Again, there is a great amount of info on our old friend, Google. My favourite go-to website is http://www.ruled.me. Here they address both recipes and plateau problems among countless over things.
    On an end note.
    The keto diet works. Period. But it requires a LOT of internet research to ensure you are doing it properly and are capable of dealing with any problems along the way. Most of all, the keto diet is fun! I love the fact that I can enjoy fatty foods again and still lose weight. It is a more sociable diet and other people also don't automatically assume I have an eating problem.
    Feel free to post your own experiences of keto dieting here! I'd love to hear from you.

Is Ketosis Dangerous?

You may have heard from your doctor that ketosis is a life-threatening condition. If so, your doctor is confusing diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) with nutritional ketosis, or keto-adaptation. First, some semantics. Our body can produce, from fat and some amino acids, three ketone bodies (a “ketone” refers to the chemical structure where oxygen is double-bonded to carbon sandwiched between at least 2 other carbons). These ketone bodies we produce are: acetone, acetoacetone, and beta-hydroxybutyrate (B-OHB). [For anyone who is interested, they are the 3 most right structures on the figure, below.] Why do we make ketones? For starters, it’s a vital evolutionary advantage. Our brain can only function with glucose and ketones. Since we can’t store more than about 24 hours’ worth of glucose, we would all die of hypoglycemia if ever forced to fast for more than a day. Fortunately, our liver can take fat and select amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and turn them into ketones, first and foremost to feed our brains. Hence, our body’s ability to produce ketones is required for basic survival. What is diabetic ketoacidosis? When diabetics (usually Type I diabetics, but some Continue reading >>

    I do a lot of reading about low carb/kenogenic diets, and typically I see people are in ketosis and losing weight between 20-60 net grams of carbs a day. I began my "low carb" (not low enough for some people) with a goal of <100 net grams a day, and I've lost about 2 lbs a week. My current calorie goal is 1200 because that's just what was recommended when I first joined myfitnesspal, and I really eat between 1100-1800 net calories, depending on my exercise and how many low carb snacks I decide to eat. I used ketostrips when I first started my diet, I had small to trace amounts detected and I was losing weight. I haven't used a test strip in a few weeks, but I've been keeping my carbs consistently lower than when I first started, anyway. I am on the cross country team at my college, so exercise is a necessity for me. I used to just eat whatever I wanted around 1200 calories a day, and would lose weight, but I couldn't stick to it and never got results like I have been eating a reduced carb amount.
    To anyone else who eats reduced carbs and exercises around 40 min a day 6 days a week, how many carbs do you eat to lose weight? Heck, even if you don't exercise, please let me know.
    I am probably going to buy more test strips to make sure I'm doing it right, but sometimes I think I might be eating too many carbs, and I just lose weight because of the amount of calories I eat. I just don't know! I hope to find somebody who can eat as many carbs as I do and still be burning fat!

    I don't work out everyday, and when I do, it's just vigorous walking. I aim for as close to zero as possible, with no more than 75g in any one day. It's almost always way less than that. Also, a ketogenic diet isn't just low carb, it's also high-fat. If you can do at least 50% of calories from fat, that would help out any ketosis.
    On a personal note, I'd encourage you to not get too caught up focusing on the strips. I was like that for a long time and it frustrated me more than it helped (although it did help a bit).

    As a diabetic who controls my glucose with diet, I eat a ketogenic diet of 65-70% of my calories from fat, 25-30% from protein and a maximum 5% from carbohydrate. I will occasionally have more carbohydrate on days where I'm doing considerable exercise - such as a 100km bike ride, a 5 hour mountain hike, etc.
    I ONLY have more carbohydrate IF I'm burning it while exercising. IE: I'll eat it within 30-45 minutes prior to exercise.
    To GET ketogenic I did 2 weeks of 20-30g a day. That, combined with exercise, got me into ketosis in a few days, actually. I slowly added more carbohydrate into my diet - but found 5% on normal days was my threshold for good glycemic control. (On high-exercise days I can eat up to 10% with no issues.)
    The amount (in grams) of carb you have that keeps you in ketosis will obviously vary depending on your caloric intake.
    I normally eat up to 3,000 calories a day - as such 40g daily is about 5%. On a 5,000+ calorie day (not uncommon for me when doing endurance exercise) I may eat 120g or more...
    My daughter recently started a ketogenic diet for weight-loss. She doesn't really count calories, just eats reasonably, and keeps her carbohydrate intake about 20g a day. She lost 20lbs in the first 3 weeks.

What’s The Difference Between Ketosis And Diabetic Ketoacidosis?

Ketosis and ketoacidosis sound similar and are sometimes confused, but don’t mistake these conditions for one another. These involve two different sets of circumstances with considerably different outlooks. Both are triggered by an increase of ketones in the body, which are acids released into the bloodstream when the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. But it’s how the body responds to this increase that sets ketosis and ketoacidosis apart from each other. RELATED: How to Tell the Difference Between Good and Bad Carbs What Is Ketosis and How Does the Process Work? “Ketosis is a natural state that occurs when you start to metabolize fat instead of sugar,” says Michael Greenfield, MD, endocrinologist and chief medical officer at El Camino Hospital in Palo Alto, California. “It occurs often when people fast and use up the stores of sugar in their body." To understand ketosis, it helps to understand how the body burns energy. Carbohydrates and fat are both energy sources, and the body typically burns carbs (sugar or glucose) first, and then fat. If there aren’t enough carbohydrates in your system, it begins to break down fat for energy, which puts your body Continue reading >>
