Getting To Know Ketones

People with diabetes, particularly those with Type 1 diabetes, have been at least vaguely aware of the word ketones for a long time. With the recent resurgence of popular interest in low-carbohydrate diets, however, just about everyone seems to be talking about ketones these days. But does anyone really know what ketones are? Are they a danger to your health (as in diabetic ketoacidosis), or a sign that you have lowered your carbohydrate intake enough to cause weight loss (as some people who follow low-carbohydrate diets believe)? What are ketones? Ketones are end-products of fat metabolism in the body. That is, they are formed when fat is burned for energy by the muscles. Chemically, they are acids known as ketone bodies, and there are three types: beta-hydroxybutyric acid, aceto-acetic acid, and acetone. But you don’t have to be a chemist to understand what role they play in the body. To get to know ketones, it’s helpful to understand how your body burns fuel. A simple analogy is that of an automobile. For a car engine to run, the engine must burn fuel (gasoline), and when the fuel is burned, exhaust (carbon monoxide) is created. The carbon monoxide is the end-product of gaso Continue reading >>

    Is moderate Ketosis too much?

    Hey gang,
    For dieting reasons I've recently started an Atkins styled approach. It's modified in that I sorta blend Phase 1 and 2(which adds nuts and more dairy) with a little bit of 'potatoes' (from Phase 3). No grains at all no fruit juices at all. I stay under 30g of carbs a day without fail. In the first 5 days I'm down 6.5 lbs -- after having been on an extended plateau for 6 months caused by taking too much basal insulin AND by still allowing myself some grains in the form of Sugar Free treats from different companies.
    So this modified Atkins is working. Cool!. BUT I picked up Ketosis sticks the other day to verify whether or not I'm in full Ketosis (not to be confused with Ketoacidosis which is VERY bad for diabetics). I had heard on several forums that it's good to get yourself so the read out is between 'trace' to 'low' and that means you're where Atkins wants you for fat burning. But I was surprised to not that I'm in the MODERATE zone for sure -- with the color coding and at the 15 second mark after passing thru urine stream. Even on a very 'liberal' Atkins program that is not following it to a tee... I've achieved and agressive ketosis. That explains the nearly 1 pound of weight loss a day so far..
    My question is -- is 'moderate' on the read too TOO MUCH ketosis. Should I add back some carbs to slow that down? Am I endangering myself at all for the dreaded 'ketoacidosis' by being at this level of ketosis?
    Thanks for your input!

    I think you are confusing ketoacidosis which is caused by very high bgs and dehydration, usually in Type 1's but can happen in Type 2's ( rarely). Usually bgs are quite high . When you are on a ketogenic diet you start to use fat for fuel ( energy). That is why you lose weight. Bein on a ketogenic diet does not lead to ketoacidosis.

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.

Measuring Ketosis On A Ketogenic Diet

Tweet Ketosis is the process of burning body fat for energy and can be measured when following a low-carb ketogenic diet. You don’t have to test for ketones for a ketogenic diet to work but some people may find it helps to check they’re on track and to tailor their diet towards more effective weight loss. Whilst ketosis is a natural process in the body, it’s important to know the safety implications of being on a ketogenic diet which will apply to people on certain diabetes and blood pressure medications. How measuring ketosis can help Whilst we can all measure our weight to see whether weight loss is occurring, there are a number of reasons why measuring ketosis can be better. Our weight can go up and down through the day but this won’t tell us whether we are actually burning body fat. Simply going to the toilet, for example, will involve a certain loss of body weight but that won’t give us any idea whether we’ve burned any body fat over the past hour or two. Additionally, if you’re exercising and putting on muscle, the scales will only show weight loss stalling or a gain in weight and won’t show you whether you’re gaining muscle whilst also losing body fat.

7 Tips To Get Into Ketosis

And convert fat into energy. By Franziska Spritzler, RD, CDE Ketosis is a normal metabolic process that provides several health benefits. During ketosis, your body converts fat into compounds known as ketones and begins using them as its main source of energy. Studies have found that diets that promote ketosis are highly beneficial for weight loss, due in part to their appetite-suppressing effects. Emerging research suggests that ketosis may also be helpful for type 2 diabetes and neurological disorders, among other conditions. That being said, achieving a state of ketosis can take some work and planning. It’s not just as simple as cutting carbs. Here are 7 effective tips to get into ketosis. 1. Minimize Your Carb Consumption Eating a very low-carb diet is by far the most important factor in achieving ketosis. Normally, your cells use glucose, or sugar, as their main source of fuel. However, most of your cells can also use other fuel sources. This includes fatty acids, as well as ketones, which are also known as ketone bodies. Your body stores glucose in your liver and muscles in the form of glycogen. When carb intake is very low, glycogen stores are reduced and levels of the hor Continue reading >>
