What Are The Optimal Ketone Levels For A Ketogenic Diet?

If you’ve just started a ketogenic diet, then you’ll know that it can be really tough to figure out if you’re doing keto right. Am I eating too many carbs? Too much protein? Should I still be feeling tired? When is the fat burning supposed to start? It’s confusing, and one of the most confusing aspects is what your optimal ketone levels are supposed to be. Unlike most other diets, the ketogenic diet is designed to put your body into a state of ketosis in order to get your body to start burning ketones instead of the glucose that it usually burns when you eat a high carb standard American diet (SAD). But to know whether you’re in ketosis and whether your body has enough ketones circulating for you to use as energy instead of glucose, you have to measure your actual ketone levels and then determine whether they’re high enough for you to be reaping the benefits of the ketogenic diet. If you’ve tried searching for this information already, then you’ll know that there’s some controversy depending on which expert you follow. So in this article, we’ll tell you exactly what the different experts are suggesting are the optimal ketone levels as well as give you recommenda Continue reading >>

    So I was told that you need to be in the range of 70-80 for glucose and 1.5-3.0 to be in Ketosis and be fat adapted. So what is the difference between fat adapted or being in ketosis the whole time.
    My numbers would rarely get in the 70-80's range but mainly would like to hang out around 85-94 Rane with a Keytone reading of 1.5 and greater. Although I was told on this Facebook group that I'm not fat adapted and perhaps not in Ketosis?
    Also my glucose readings were always higher in the mornings with a few exceptions of being in the high 70's.
    Can anyone shed light on this, I feel that the keto community has different optimal ranges for what they think is correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    OK - "in ketosis" simply means your liver is producing ketones from partially metabolised fat. If you are more than 0.5 on your ketone meter, you are in ketosis. That will happen with about 48 hours of fasting or a few days of very low carb intake. It's an ephemeral state - eat more carbs, you'll make less ketones - eat less carbs, you'll make more ketones.
    Fat -adapted means that all the enzymes to do with fat metabolism have ramped up, so you are really good at burning fat. Also, your muscles become less keen to take up glucose because they want to leave it for the brain. Some people who low carb find their fasting glucose actually rises after a few months because of this effect.
    As to glucose levels - do you have diabetes? A normal fasting glucose is between 70 and 110, with 70-90 being preferred. I've seen keto people saying that blood glucose above 110 will prevent you being in ketosis. Well, according to my meters, that's a pile of poo, because I've seen 2+ on my ketone meter and 7 (126) on my glucose meter at the same time. But I have diabetes. Maybe in people without diabetes, a blood glucose above 110 only happens if they've eaten a load of carbs, and it's that which prevents ketosis rather than their glucose level per se.
    What enables ketosis is low carb intake. What prevents it is eating more carbs.... and maybe too much protein. More on the difference here:

    Being Fat Adapted Versus "In Ketosis" (Pt.1/3)
    “I got kicked out of ketosis.” If I never hear or read those six words, in that order, ever again, I’ll be one happy individual. ...

    Also be aware that, once you are fully fat adapted, your ketone levels may well fall. Richard and Carl have covered this on the podcast - you become more efficient at making enough ketones for your needs, but not too many. I'd been keto about 3 months when I got my ketone meter - my readings were always over 1.5, usually over 2. Another 4 months on, I rarely get above 1 unless I fast for 24 hours - my usual 20-30g carbs per day and 16/8 or 18/6 IF usually has me between 0.3 and 1. Just tested now - after 12+ hour fast, a keto day yesterday and 1 hour run this morning - BG 6.7 (120), ketones 0.5. BG was 6.1 (110) when I got up - exercise can raise it in the short term, but reduces it long term.

    Nope no diabetes on my end, I'm pretty active my events are bodybuilding and powerlifting, I have about 8% bf weighing around 155-160lbs, 39 years of age.
    This is what I read in today fasted.
    85 glucose and 3.3 Keytones this morning.

    Wondering what is the norm for being in ketosis and also fat adapted. I think what I've heard is that you have to be in a sweet spot of 70-80 glucose and 1.5-3.0 Keytones in order to be fat adapted.

Ketosis Advantaged Or Misunderstood State? (part I)

Ketosis advantaged or misunderstood state? (Part I) In part I of this post I will see to it (assuming you read it) that youll know more about ketosis than just about anyone, including your doctor or the majority of experts out there writing about this topic. Before we begin, a disclaimer in order: If you want toactuallyunderstand this topic, you must invest the time and mental energy to do so. You really have to get into the details. Obviously, I love the details and probably read 5 or 6 scientific papers every week on this topic (and others). I dont expect the casual reader to want to do this, and I view it as my role to synthesize this information and present it to you.But this is not a bumper-sticker issue. I know its trendy to make blanket statements ketosis is unnatural, for example, or ketosis is superior but such statements mean nothing if you dont understand the biochemistry and evolution of our species. So, lets agree to let the unsubstantiated statements and bumper stickers reside in the world of political debates and opinion-based discussions. For this reason, Ive deliberately broken this post down and only included this content (i.e., background) for Part I. Ketosis is Continue reading >>

    I just recently had a full blood profile done, and it states that my glucose is 90, with the normal range being 75-110mg/dl. My question is this: for 8 weeks prior to this I had been adhering to a very strict keto diet, with my only carbs coming from 1 serving of macadamia nuts and 1 cup of cottage cheese (15 or so carbs daily) with a carb-up every Saturday until 4pm or so. Now, the blood test was given on a Friday, and in addition I had been fasting since 6pm the preceding evening, in which I only had 1 cup of cottage cheese with 1tbsp. of flax oil. So, what exactly is this telling me? Is my blood glucose unusually high for someone that has followed a moderate-high protein intake and high fat intake? Or does this mean something entirely different? The reason that I ask is when I had it tested roughly a year ago I was eating close to 40/30/30-like, and my glucose was 79. Can someone please explain?

Ketosis And Blood Sugar Levels

Hi all, 1 Worst Carb After Age 50 If you're over 50 and you eat this carb you will never lose belly fat. healthplus50.com Right now, I'm doing a VLC paleo diet (trying for state of ketosis), and have been testing my blood sugar levels intermittently. I was wondering what the normal blood sugar levels for one in ketosis should be, fasting and post-meal. Before I ate, my blood sugar level was pretty low, around 50 mg/dl, but after my meal it seems to have come up to 120 mg/dl. I did eat a fair amount of high sugar/starch veggies (onions, green peppers) and coconut milk so may have eaten too many carbs. Just trying to make sure I'm not inadvertently sneaking too many carbs into my meals. Thanks! Continue reading >>

    Sorry if this doesn't belong in this part of the forum, but it seems better here than the other places in the forum.
    I am having trouble finding a solid answer to this. Everywhere I look online tells me something different. I see some say around 50 mg/dl which I would think is totally hypoglycemic. So I don’t really believe that. I see others saying as long as you are below about 97 mg/dl. I see others that say in the 80s. Some say other things. I just want a straight answer. So I need some advice from a successful keto person.
    What is proper blood glucose levels for someone who is in ketosis? I got this blood glucose monitor and I think it may be defective or just a crappy brand. Yesterday my fasting blood glucose (after a 14 hour fast) was 83 mg/dl. Today (again after a 14 hour fast) was 97. I couldn’t believe it so I took my blood glucose again and it said 92. Then I ate exactly 3 pieces of bacon and a piece of cheese, and two hours later my blood glucose was 102. I thought WTF, so I immediately took it again and it said 109.
    So maybe I have a defective monitor (the Nova Max Plus), but regardless, there is probably at least a little bit of truth to it. But I seriously eat 25 grams or less of carbs per day. Usually less.
    Could someone please explain glucose levels to me in regards to ketosis.

    In the absence of dietary carbohydrates, your body will break down fats and proteins to maintain your blood glucose in the normal range. Here's an explanation:
