What Fats Are Good For Ketosis?

The Worst Fats To Eat When You’re Keto (or Any Time)

The oils you should never eat. Oils that cause inflammation, digestive conditions, and more. Smoke points, omega 6 to 3 ratios and why I choose not to consume vegan spreads. Ever. Many of us, myself included, have been duped by the food and “nutrition” industry to eat oils and fats that are not good for us. I used to think grapeseed oil was a healthy oil for baking. This is wrong. I used to think that canola oil, regardless of the way it was processed, was REALLY bad. I used to think that sesame oil added healthy flavor to dishes, I couldn’t have been farther from the truth. There was a time where vegan spreads were the only fat I consumed. And don’t even get me started on “healthy omega oils”. I spent two solid weeks digging into the research behind common oils – they’re polyunsaturated content, processing methods, omega ratios, and more, and have rated each and every common oil to decode marketing gimmicks and uncover the truth. If you’re struggling with inflammation, unhealthy oils could be the culprit. Signs of inflammation include but are not limited to aches, pains, fatigue, weight imbalances, itchy skin, red skin, autoimmune conditions, multiple food allerg Continue reading >>

    I read about this and thought since I've been low carbing for a while I'd be spared. No such luck!
    I'd previously kept my carbs low but also kept my fat low. Was eating a lot of grilled chicken, cottage cheese, veggies... etc. No full fat cheeses or the like.
    I'm not doing so hot today.
    For breakfast I had 2 slices of bacon and some eggs scrambled with bell peppers
    Lunch was 3 more eggs (I need to go to the store for protein badly...) with cheese, seasoned ground beef, and broccoli.
    I had a spoonful of cream cheese this afternoon because I was just picking in the fridge and knew I should get something in my stomach.
    Anyway... I feel like death right now. I know I should round a salad and something up for dinner but I'm feeling really green at the moment.
    How long will this take to pass???

    Straight from Dr. Atkins himself:
    "There are a few people who experience fatigue or light-headedness during their first week doing Atkins. Most often this means that the progress is going too fast for their particular metabolism--they're losing weight too fast, losing water and certain minerals too fast, and their bodies can't keep pace with these quick changes. One sign is ascent weakness: you feel weak walking up stairs, These reactions can be aggrevated by hot weather, when you are already losing minerals through sweat, or by taking a diuretic. Obviously drinking lots of water is essential.
    Usually, I advise patients who have these problems to slow down the weight loss. They should add another helping of vegetables to their evening meal or two ounces of nuts or seeds. Although their bodies would almost certainly adjust during the second week, there isn't any good reason for feeling washed out and sickly for even one day. After the symptoms abate, go back to the lower level of carb intake."
    The new book, "New Atkins New You" suggests 2 cups of broth (NOT low sodium) , one in the morning, one in the afternoon to prevent dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.
    I personally, would start with upping the veggies

    Thank you so much!!! I had a salad with chicken and blue cheese and I'm actually feeling a bit better. Probably from the lettuce? I'll eat a cucumber now and make some broth. I have the 1972 version of the book (my grandmother gave it to me a while ago) and I've read through it but I know I need to take a closer look. It's been a busy few weeks .
    Anyway, you're the best! Thanks again
