Tracking Blood Ketones: Behind The Scenes Data On The Ketogenic Diet

Tracking Blood Ketones: Behind the Scenes Data on the Ketogenic Diet I’ve tried a lot of diets. I first went vegetarian, then slow carb, then gluten-free, then Paleo. I even did a 28-day Chipotle diet, which is exactly as awesome as it sounds. Eventually I found the Ketogenic diet. For me, like for many people in our communities, this all started with a health concern. I was born with a heart condition. It never impacted my life, but it was there, lingering. When I was a junior in college, a few classmates and I were out enjoying late night pizza. Out of nowhere, one classmate suddenly jolted upright and fell off his stool. He died. I found out the next morning it was from a lingering heart condition, not too unlike my own. I started to think about my health a lot more after that. I read about nutrition and started exploring the confusing world of diets. As I learned more and as I became more involved in Quantified Self, I found myself wanting to quantify these diets. That’s what drew me to Keto. It’s the most measurable diet. Quick Summary of the Ketogenic Diet Keto is a high-fat, very-low-carb diet, usually with 70% of calories coming from fat. The idea is to switch your bo Continue reading >>

    Hi! So based on the excellent advice of everyone here, I'm on a daily limit of 25g total carbs each day, and I've held to that the last three days. I was thinking about testing my ketones again this weekend (after about 5 days of super strict restriction), but I'm wondering - what is the best time of day to test?

    I don't have T2DM, but am I still impacted by the dawn phenomenon? Should I plan for afternoon? Before or after food? Does any of that matter? I just don't want to waste the little blood strips, cause crap they're expensive!

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...

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.

How Ketosis Helps You Lose Weight Through Suppressed Appetite
