Keto Diet HACK! The trick I use to get and STAY in Ketosis This boils down to: - Bulletproof Coffee in the AM (For additional fat add more Grass-fed Butter + Heavy Cream) - Brain Octane Oil 2x daily - 1Tbs per serving *Recommended at noon and night - Use Keto Strips to gauge ketone levels (about 70-80% accuracy) Get the essentials below... Bulletproof Coffee (5lb) - http://bit.ly/1WRxBdm Brain Octane Oil (32oz) - http://bit.ly/2divjEM Keto Strips (100 strips) - http://amzn.to/1rxulbI This hack is a MASSIVE leg up when starting and working to stay in ketosis. The Ketogenic Diet can be intimidating to a lot of folks and understandably so. The amount of fat you need to take in is quite substantial. This can be even tougher for those adverse to taking in dairy and may want to retain a somewhat or even completely vegan lifestyle. The beauty of this hack is that it is exceptional at ensuring you get a steady baseline - a foundation of healthy fats offering the most in the way of cognitive benefit. This will elevate your health while making you feel great. A no brainer, right? It wasn't difficult for me to discover this hack. I've been drinking Bulletproof Coffee for more than a year now. So I was already beginning many of my mornings in a minor state of ketosis - substantial fat intake with a lack of carbs in a substantial window of time. If you really want to ease into this hack begin with BPC (Bulletproof Coffee) for a week and then begin folding in the Brain Octane Oil. Transition at a level of comfort that works for you and of course consult your physician before making any changes to your diet or lifestyle. This advice is in no way a medical/clinical recommendation. Check out my channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/TJohnstonPo...

7 Signs You Might Be In Ketosis When Doing The Ketogenic Diet

One of the main goals of starting the ketogenic diet is to get your body into a metabolic state known as ketosis. Note: If you don’t know what the ketogenic is all about then check out the Ketogenic Diet: Beginner’s Guide to Keto and Weight Loss. This is when your body starts to produce a lot of ketones to supply energy for your body. Why is this good? Because it means your body has converted from a sugar-burner to a fat-burner. If your body is burning fat for energy then something amazing starts to happen. The fat on your body starts to disappear. But how do you know when you’re in ketosis? Besides using test strips or an instrument there are some signs that your body will give. 7 Signs You Might Be in Ketosis These don’t 100% guarantee that your body is in ketosis but if it is in ketosis then these signs will appear. 1. Weight Loss One of the obvious signs of ketosis is weight loss but this can also be pretty deceptive because many people don’t experience the kind of weight loss that they expect. This can happen for a variety of reasons but when you get close to entering ketosis or do enter ketosis you’ll find that you lose a healthy amount of weight quickly. For exam Continue reading >>

    Keto Strips - No Ketones!

    I'm 31 days in and decided to buy some of these at Walgreens http://fw.to/YqxKTWV
    4 because I was curious if I am in ketosis and I have some flex-spending $$ to use up (the strips are an eligible purchase). I had eaten maybe 3-5 net carbs today and plenty of fat, worked out this morning, and had gone from dinner until lunchtime without eating. So, was totally surprised that the urine strip color this evening (about 3 hours since I last ate) indicated zero ketones.

    Any thoughts on why? I'm more curious than anything else.

    The strips aren't accurate once you are fat adapted. When you pee them out, those are excess ketones you aren't burning. When your body gets good at it, it doesn't generate excess. This is actually well known.
    Blood is more accurate but costs a bit. The Ketonix breath analyzer is pricey but is reusable for free.

    It doesn't really seem like you need it to know you are doing well. These things are good at fine tuning to find out what you can get away with or for more detailed health needs.

  3. Jim Russell

    There is also a thread about using a cheap alcohol breathalyzer for testing ketones.
    Test Breath Ketones without a Ketonix (using a cheap breathalyzer)
    I've wanted a ketonix for a while but am not going to fork over hundreds of dollars. So I followed some advice and got myself a cheap breathalyzer on ebay. Apparently they don't distinguish between alcohol and acetone. IT WORKS! Now I can measure easily whether or not I am in ketosis anytime I suspect I may have dropped out. The ketostix stopped working for me a long time ago as my body is very well adapted and I don't excrete a lot of measurable ketones.The breathalyzer is not much good for…

    I bought one and it's been working well.

6 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Go On A Ketogenic Diet

By now, you've probably heard of the ketogenic diet, or a low-carb, high-fat diet. It’s a popular diet trend among athletes and average folk alike. (Who doesn't love the idea of eating more steak and bacon?) But what actually happens to your body when you go on the ketogenic diet? To understand how the ketogenic diet works, you have to understand ketosis, the process by which your body is starved of glucose for fuel and must look to fat sources instead. Typically, you fuel your body by giving it glucose in the form of carbs, which can be found in flour, grains, vegetables, legumes, dairy products, and fruits. We usually introduce a steady stream of this type of fuel into our bodies with each meal or snack, explains Pamela Nisevich Bede MS, RD, CSSD, LD. These carbohydrates are usually the body’s first choice when looking for an instant fix. “When a carb is available, the body will naturally turn to this to make energy instead of dietary fat or stored body fat. However, when we remove carbohydrates from our diet, our bodies begin to break down fat and turn to a fuel source in the form of ketones, which is more efficient but generally underutilized,” explains Bede.

    I'm closing in on two months of being on a ketogenic diet, and I haven't lost any weight in the last five weeks. My GKI has been between 3.61 and 0.75 during that period. My blood ketone level (waking) has been between 1.2 and 5.2, with a waking blood glucose between 70 and 86. I've been exercising for an hour five days a week (elliptical, weight lifting, HIIT and heavy bag). I've done intermittent fasting, up to 24 hours of just water or broth. The last two weeks, I've been eating two meals during 8 hours a day and fasting for 16. I'm taking L-Carnitine, Potassium, Magnesium, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I weigh and measure EVERYTHING I eat. I'm getting between 1000 and 2000 calories a day, averaging about 1600. My macros are dead on 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs. I get about six cups of vegetables a day. I don't get what's going on. My numbers are good. I'm doing everything right. But I'm not losing any weight at all. I thought as long as my GKI was good, calories should not matter. Once I realized that 1600 calories a day wasn't working for weight loss, I cut it back to about 1200 and upped my exercise. Still nothing. What's going wrong?

    My macros are dead on 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs.
    Use actual grams, not percentages.
    I'm doing everything right. But I'm not losing any weight at all. I thought as long as my GKI was good, calories should not matter.
    False.
    Once I realized that 1600 calories a day wasn't working for weight loss, I cut it back to about 1200 and upped my exercise.
    For how long has that been going on?
    Have you MEASURED YOUR SIZE? If you are the exact same size I'd be shocked. You are likely missing the forest for the trees.

  3. 147DegreesWest

    If you consistently eat at a 20% deficit you should be losing 1-2 lbs a week. However if you are hitting protein and working out, you will pick up the same in muscle and water.
    My guess is that you are losing fat and gaining muscle. A lot of time with woman measurement changes happen long before the scale moves much, especially if they are eating close maintenance. My guess for men this is the same. Woman often focus on measurements, and my guess is that many of the body builders in Keto gains rely as much on measurements.
    Are you hitting protein relative to BMI?

What Happens When You Fall Out Of Ketosis During Dieting?

Ketosis, a metabolic state where fat rather than carbohydrates becomes your primary energy source, occurs only when you follow a low-carbohydrate diet or a near-starvation diet. Your body normally uses carbohydrates for energy. On a low-carb diet, you cut carbohydrate consumption, so your body must find a new energy source. Eating as little as 50 and 100 g of carbohydrate per day can keep you out of ketosis, registered dietitian Janice Hermann, Ph.D. of Oklahoma State University reports. If you fall out of ketosis, a low-carbohydrate diet may not work for weight loss. Video of the Day Falling out of ketosis may slow or stop your weight loss, because low-carb diets don’t generally count calories. In fact, you may eat more calories while in ketosis and still lose weight. The official Atkins website published an abstract presented at the North American Association for the Study of Obesity Annual Meeting 2003. The 12-week study found that subjects following a low-carb diet who were consuming 300 calories per day more than subjects eating a low-calorie diet still lost more weight. However, if you are still eating fewer calories than you use, you may continue to lose weight even if you Continue reading >>
