What Is Ketosis And Is It Harmful?

Share on facebook

Use healthy carbs and/or protein to get out of ketosis. Don't use junk food or sugary foods. Get out of ketosis to re-sensitize your body to insulin. I've heard of several stories of people who were in ketosis for too long and when they stopped they gained weight excessively, had joint pain, etc. Please like, share and subscribe to my YouTube page to get notifications whenever I post a new video!

What Is Ketosis, And Is It Healthy?

Ketosis is a natural metabolic state. It involves the body producing ketone bodies out of fat, and using them for energy instead of carbs. You can get into ketosis by following a very low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet (1). In addition to fast weight loss, ketosis may have several health benefits, such as reduced seizures in epileptic children (2). Ketosis is quite complex, but this article explains what it is and how it can benefit you. Ketosis is a metabolic state in which fat provides most of the fuel for the body. It occurs when there is limited access to glucose (blood sugar), which is the preferred fuel source for many cells in the body. Ketosis is most often associated with ketogenic and very low-carb diets. It also happens during pregnancy, infancy, fasting and starvation (3, 4, 5, 6). To go into ketosis, people generally need to eat fewer than 50 grams of carbs per day and sometimes as little as 20 grams per day. This requires removing certain food items from your diet, such as grains, candy and sugary soft drinks. You also have to cut back on legumes, potatoes and fruit. When eating a very low-carb diet, levels of the hormone insulin go down and fatty acids are released fr Continue reading >>

    Like others here, I switched to a low carb diet, and it seems to help my ME. My Candida antibodies were very high when last tested. I'm not excessive about the diet -- I probably get about 35-45% of my macronutrients from protein -- up from maybe 10% before the diet.
    But now my urine is foamy every time I urinate. According to Google, this means that there is protein in my urine. But it's difficult to get a sense of whether this is harming me (especially my kidneys) or not. Sources are conflicting. It doesn't foam excessively, like beer, but a single layer of noticeable bubbles forms. It could almost go unnoticed, but I'm certain I've never seen it before.
    Can anyone shed any light on this? Should I be concerned? I don't want to have to choose between Candida and kidney damage. (I would choose Candida, BTW).
    P.S. To anyone who may remember that I posted in another thread about having kidney-area pain, this pain predated the foam by about 6 months, so it's not clear that there's any connection.

    Hi PWCalvin, I have no hard evidence about this as I have not reseached the literature. However I have heard stories of bodybuilders who developed kidney problems from too much protein. The point of low carb is not to eat massive amounts of protein. Maybe someone with more knowledge of paleo diets and low carb diets would like to comment? Bye, Alex

If you suspect protein in your urine, you could get urine sticks to test for it. In that case a visit to the doctor would be well advised.
    But if you changed you diet, your body is probably adapting and this might go away.
    I had kidney-area pain that was similiar to what you describe, plus I had a high urinating frequency. After I went on a Atkins diet (carb-free), these problems went away.
    I am now on a Paleo/Primal type of diet and I think it is not the carbs, that are the problem, but usually carbs are either grain-products, milk-products or potatoes. All three contain substances that can be bad (gluten, wga, alkaloids, etc.). There are some sources of carb that should be safe, like plantains and sweet potatoes/african yam. Other sources like rice are OK for some, but I try to minimize it. Search for "safe starches".
    If you are healthy going very low carb (VLC) for some time can be OK, but in the long term one should find out what ones personal "safe starches" are.
    One more thought: I try to get my protein from animal products (meat, fish, eggs) and try to avoid plant-products rich in protein like soybean. Soybean contains substances that can mess up the hormone system

What Is Ketosis?

"Ketosis" is a word you'll probably see when you're looking for information on diabetes or weight loss. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? That depends. Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis can become dangerous when ketones build up. High levels lead to dehydration and change the chemical balance of your blood. Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping you burn fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscle. For health Continue reading >>

    I've been doing the keto diet for about 2 weeks already, I've lost 9 pounds already following the diet, I've also done a lot of exercise and counting my calories with MFP.
    The thing is that I don't know if I'm loosing weight just because I'm eating less calories and doing exercise or because i'm also in Ketosis...
    I don't really know if my pee smells worse, neither I feel a metallic breath (just whenever my mouth is dry is the time that I feel that my breath stinks, but don't know if this means something), and I've looked everywhere in my city for those ketostix but I guess they are not common here in Colombia...
    So my question really is, if there's another way to know if i'm in ketosis...
    Thanks!

    Eating less than 25g carbs a day [√]
    Not eating 300g+ protein a day [√]
    If you have fulfilled those requirements for at least 2-3 days, you'll be in ketosis.
    Don't even bother with the ketostix, they're inaccurate. You'll be in ketosis as long as you don't eat too many carbs or eat a ridiculous amount of protein.
    Losing weight is just eating less calories, keto just helps you fill satisfied while doing so which in return makes a higher deficit easier for some. You don't instantly start dropping pounds by eating keto friendly foods, it's entirely possible to gain weight while in ketosis. It all comes down to calories.

Is Ketosis Safe And Does It Have Side Effects?

Some people think that ketosis is extremely dangerous. However, they might be confusing ketosis with ketoacidosis, which is completely different. While ketoacidosis is a serious condition caused by uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a natural metabolic state. In fact, ketosis and ketogenic diets have been studied extensively and shown to have major benefits for weight loss (1, 2). Ketogenic diets have also been shown to have therapeutic effects in epilepsy, type 2 diabetes and several other chronic conditions (3, 4, 5, 6). Ketosis is generally considered to be safe for most people. However, it may lead to a few side effects, especially in the beginning. First, it's necessary to understand what ketosis is. Ketosis is a natural part of metabolism. It happens either when carbohydrate intake is very low (such as on a ketogenic diet), or when you haven't eaten for a long time. Both of these lead to reduced insulin levels, which causes a lot of fat to be released from your fat cells. When this happens, the liver gets flooded with fat, which turns a large part of it into ketones. During ketosis, many parts of your body are burning ketones for energy instead of carbs. This includes a large Continue reading >>

    We've had a lot of posts on the ketogains facebook page, we've taken to removing all of them.
    What's worse is they word it to sound like Dom D'Agostino endorses it by noting he's researched something similar.

    It seems like it's not something that makes you make more ketones in spite of your liver still having glycogen stores. It seems instead that it's ketones already there, being added to your bloodstream directly through ingestion. So you've got more ketones in your blood, but this has nothing to do with actually being in ketosis. You're still going to have to use that stored glycogen until its gone, and then you'll be in ketosis.
    He's saying that he has high ketone levels after taking this. Well, sure, if it's what I've said above, of course you're going to see that. But he also claims their presence indicates you're in fat-burning mode, and no, that does not logically follow. You are in fat-burning mode when your liver doesn't have glycogen to work with.
    Oh, and he lost a significant amount of body fat in a week? Fuck off. That was mostly water and everybody here knows that.
    I'm not an expert so forgive me if I have misunderstood, but this product appears to be complete bullshit.

    That's exactly what I'm thinking as well, it just makes no sense.
    Also even by ingesting it, it shouldn't affect the blood level so quickly should it?
