What Is The Cause Of Ketosis?

Share on facebook

How to Use Fat to Burn Fat: Let me walk you through one of the most misunderstood aspects of ketosis! Plenty more at http://www.thomasdelauer.com/life-fit... -In a previous video I explained ketosis and how to reach ketosis through diet. Ketosis is when your body turns to fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Ketogenic diets are those with a 4:1 ratio of fats to proteins and carbohydrates, with 80-90% of calories coming from fat. It takes about 3-4 days of consuming less than 50 carbs per day to reach ketosis through diet. -Keto-adaptation: it can take the body and the bodys tissues time to adapt to produce and utilize ketones more efficiently. This can take several weeks and during that time you may experience mild hypoglycemia symptoms. Ketogenic diets have been shown to have benefits on the brain health, including seizure prevention. Therapeutic benefits have been known since the 1920s when the ketogenic diet began to be used for seizure prevention. Ketones also show therapeutic benefits for heart health and those with type-2 diabetes. -Ketone bodies were shown to decrease oxygen consumption in the heart while increasing ATP production, leading to a 28% increase to the hydraulic efficiency of the heart! Ketones protect against oxidative stress and suppress inflammation. Promising preliminary effects have also been found for cancer and Alzheimers. Ketogenic diets can decrease hunger, which is great when trying to lose weight. Traditionally ketosis would have occurred during fasting, pregnancy or extended exercise. -We will review the pros and cons of exogenous ketones as well as how they work? -Cells throughout your body contain mitochondria, the sort of power plant of each cell. Mitochondria can run off of glucose or ketone bodies. When glucose is in short supply, your liver will break down fats into three ketone bodies: beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), acetone and acetoacetic acid. Exogenous ketones are simply ketones that you take through supplement form; those made by the liver are endogenous ketones. -BHB is the main ketone body used in exogenous ketone supplements. BHB is then either used directly in tissues throughout the body, or it is broken down by BHB dehydrogenase to acetoacetic acid, which is then utilized. If you take excess exogenous ketones, the majority of them will be excreted through urine rather than stored as fat. Thus, when compared to other nutrients, you are less likely to store exogenous ketones as fat. Tips: -Electrolytes can become depleted during ketosis due to lack of water retention and frequent urination. Depending on how you feel, you may benefit from drinking a solution with electrolytes (such as water with pink himalayan sea salt) during supplementation. -As BHB is the ingredient in these supplements that you are looking for to kickstart ketosis, it is best to look for a supplement that has more total BHB grams per serving. BHB is the most expensive ingredient in these supplements. Divide total grams BHB per serving by the cost of the serving to find the cost per gram BHB. As MCT oil has health benefits too, the cost per gram BHB may not work as well with these supplements. References: 1.

What Is Ketosis? Hint: It Can Help You Burn Fat & Suppress Your Appetite

We’ve longed been told that calorie restriction, increasing exercise and reducing dietary fat intake are the keys to weight loss. But, if you’ve ever attempted to control your weight by subsisting on fewer calories — especially from mostly bland “diet foods”— you’re already probably aware that this typically produces minimal results and is extremely hard to stick with long-term or consistently. Considering the high rates of obesity now facing most developed nations — along with an increased risk for health conditions like diabetes or heart problems as a result — researchers have been anxiously working on how to suppress appetite and achieve weight loss in a healthy, sustainable manner. The keto diet has emerged over the past several decades as one potential answer to this large-scale weight loss problem. (1) While there are some differences in opinion, depending on who you ask, regarding the best approach to very low-carb dieting, studies consistently show that the ketogenic diet (also called the keto diet) produces not only substantial weight loss for a high percentage of people who adhere to it, but also other important health benefits such as reductions in seiz Continue reading >>

The Beginners Guide To Ketosis: Investigating Low-carb, High-fat Eating

The only hard and fast rule of health is that health is personal and what works well for one person may not work for someone else. Aside from that rule, there are “frameworks” that seem to benefit large groups of people. One more level down from that are alternative strategies that benefit smaller groups. Ketosis is likely one of those alternative strategies that works well for certain, smaller groups of people. So, right off the bat I want you to understand that Ketosis might not be for everyone. I’m going to lay out the case for potential benefits of Ketosis. If it sounds interesting and beneficial to you, then consider trying it. (see our free cheat sheet to help you). What is Ketosis Ketosis occurs when liver glycogen gets depleted and the body burns fatty acids for fuel. The primary driver of this state is a very low carbohydrate intake. Often, it also requires a low protein, higher fat intake. You can also achieve a state of ketosis by not eating altogether. The creation of ketones is a byproduct of this metabolic state. Ketones are a source of fuel, just as glucose is a source of fuel. Ketones tend to have some added benefits, though. What role does Ketosis play in hum Continue reading >>

    Look, I like steaks. I like bacon. I can enjoy a burger.
    But I fucking like chicken. I like chicken BREASTS. And I like beef jerky, which is a miracle if you can find it with fewer than 7g of carbs or more but I digress.
    According to my scale, I have 111 or so pounds of lean body mass, but it seems like I'm incapable of eating fewer than 130g of protein every day. I mean hell, even on days when 80%+ of my calories come from fat, I've eaten too many grams of protein.
    I can't just eat butter and coconut oil. I put butter in my chicken broth, even though imo that ruins the taste.
    How the hell am I supposed to lower my protein and eat more fat in a way that isn't 100% gag worthy?
    Why are you so concerned about eating too much protein? How much is 'too much' protein?

  2. B1GJV

    Are you still losing weight? 130g might not be TOO much, but on the high side. I struggle to get enough protein some days and I love my meat.... 130g of protein is about 400g of chicken! nearly a pound of chicken? that's a lot of chicken.

  3. B1GJV

    Yip! there's about 950kcal in 400g of chicken, if that's 20% then the other 80% = 3800kcal, which is a total of 4750 calories!!!!!
    OP, are you sure you have your macros correct? anyway, 130g of protein is 1.2g per lbs of LBM, so if that's what you're eating I wouldn't worry,
