- Does replenishing your glycogen stores fully kick you out of ketosis? Can you produce ketone bodies and store boy fat simultaneously?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I love your podcast and have read your books! I've been keto since January 2016 and IF regularly with some longer fasts, so I'm definitely fat adapted. I eat PLENTY of fat and I love it! I have a question today about glycogen stores and corresponding ketone readings. From what I understand, if I overdo it and eat too many carbs or too much protein or both, my glycogen stores will eventually fill up and then the leftover glucose from the meal will be converted to fat for storage. I'm wondering if filling my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage will knock me out of ketosis? In other words, as long as I'm registering a reading within the nutritional ketosis range of 0.5-3.0 mmol on my blood ketone meter, is it safe to assume that I didn't load up my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage? Is it even physiologically possible to both burn fat for fuel and producing ketones while also storing fat at the same time?

Thanks so much for all that you do, and thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

JIMMY AND DR. ADAM NALLY’S KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS

 

– STUDY: The cholesterol and calorie hypotheses are both dead — it is time to focus on the real culprit: insulin resistance

1. Is there something about the ketogenic diet that causes vivid dreams that lead to nightmares?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

Reading Keto Clarity last year made me realize that the keto life is the key to life, so thank you! I have question I’d love your help with that I haven’t seen a good answer to anywhere online. Do you experience what I’ll describe as “keto dreams?” Some people have shared that since eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet, they struggle more with nightmares. I had stress-induced insomnia for 10 years prior to going keto, but now that I’m sleeping better my sleep is plagued by extremely vivid dreams that oftentimes lead to nightmares. Am I suffering from some sort of deficiency in my diet for this to be happening now? Or is my body just working through the stress of bad sleep for more than a decade?

Thank you very much for your help,

Jezabel

2. Is chicken fat and bacon a worse meat option while eating keto because of their polyunsaturated fat content? Or does it even matter?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I've been eating low-carb, ketogenic since December 2014. I check my blood glucose and blood ketones daily. One of the pleasures of eating keto is I get to enjoy cooking and eating real foods like pasture raised chicken and making bone broth. However, I do have a concern about the chicken fat containing linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). I learned more about these reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz where she describes PUFAs as obesegenic because they store more fat in a low insulin environment while increasing insulin resistance outside the fat cells. Even Dr. Nally’s beloved bacon contains large amounts of these PUFAs as well. Did that wake you up Doc? Beef fat, lamb fat, and butter are all low in PUFAs. So my question for you guys is this: Does the choice of meat type with better fat profiles when you are eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat matter in terms of dealing with body fat loss goals?

I’ll be listening for your reply on the show,

Frank in Brisbane, Australia

3. Is there a keto-friendly allergy medication or remedy that doesn’t contain unwanted sugars and other culprit ingredients?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Thanks for all you do in spreading the word about the multiple benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle through your podcast. I suffer from a lot of allergies, especially grass and ragweed pollen. Over the years I've experimented with many antihistamines and their efficacies for me. Of course, Benadryl is the best, but has the side effect of severe drowsiness. Through experimentation I've found what works best for me is the CVS brand of 12-hour allergy product where the active ingredient is Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Now that I'm keto, it seems prudent to reexamine all the medications and supplements I take in terms of their compatibility with this way of eating.

In my allergy medication that I like, here's the list of inactive ingredients in this product: Calcium Sulfate, Carnauba Wax, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Confectioner's Sugar, D&C Yellow 10, Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue 2/Indigo Carmine Aluminum Lake, FD&C Yellow 6, Gelatin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Methacrylic Acid Copolymer, Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Pharmaceutical Ink, Polysorbate 80, Povidone, Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sucrose, Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Triethyl Citrate.

Ragweed season is fast approaching, and I will need an antihistamine product that will actually work—otherwise I will be absolutely miserable. I'm willing to take Benedryl every 4 hours if needed, but I was wondering if there is a long-acting antihistamine you advise your highly insulin resistant patients to take which will have minimum insulin and glucose response. I’d like to avoid the confectioner’s sugar, sucrose, and other suspect ingredients in that CVS brand if possible. This seems like an issue that might affect a lot of your listeners. Thanks for all you do in reaching and teaching so many about the ketogenic lifestyle!

- What’s the best way to determine what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for my ketogenic diet?

Hi, Jimmy and The Doc!

Thank you for writing Keto Clarity and doing the Keto Talk podcast sharing your wisdom about the ketogenic lifestyle. I’ve been keto since January 2017 and have lost 15 pounds. While I eat low-carb, high-fat, I’m still struggling about how to figure out exactly how many carbohydrates, how much protein, and how much fat to eat. I follow a keto group on Facebook that gives me inspiration, but they don’t believe excess protein gets converted into glucose as I’ve learned from you guys. If you disagree with their version of keto, then they shame you for not understanding the diet. In fact, when I asked about testing my blood ketones recently, one person responded that eating 20g carbohydrates will automatically put you in to ketosis. I know this isn’t true, but it’s made me think about how I can go about discovering what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for me. Can you guys help?

Thanks for all you do!

ADAM NALLY’S KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 75: – Weight loss: Why eating MORE carbs could be the secret to transforming YOUR body – Cut down on carbohydrate to raise the chance of getting pregnant: Couples trying for a baby advised to eat only one portion a day – Girl With Diabetes and Insulin Allergy to Receive Pancreas Transplant - What impact does blood glucose-lowering supplements have on blood ketone levels? Are they beneficial while eating ketogenic? Jimmy and Adam, Various spices are reputed for their glucose lowering effects. For example, apple cider vinegar, fenugreek, and cinnamon are all well-known to decrease blood sugar levels and I’m sure there are many others. My question for you guys is this: What impact does ingesting these spices have while on a ketogenic diet specifically on BHOB blood ketone levels. I currently take fenugreek because I learned about the glucose lowering effects in a study when it slowed the absorption of the carbage these SAD dieters were eating. But since a well-formulated keto diet has very few carbs to begin with, would the fenugreek provide the same benefit or may it even backfire given that fenugreek is almost 60% carbohydrates? I realize blood sugar lowering isn’t the same as ketone-boosting, but I do see the two going hand-in-hand. So what do you think? I realize this might be a question without a clear answer, but I’d still love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for the very informative and helpful podcast.

Does a ketogenic diet lower insulin levels and provide ultimate healing for insulin resistance which seems to be genetic? Hi guys, I'm a recovered diabetic thanks to eating a low carb (but not necessarily ketogenic) diet. I used to be on the maximum daily Metformin dosage and took 130 units a day of long-acting insulin. I’m off all of those medications now and have an A1c of 5.3. I lost 60 pounds fairly easily on low-carb, but now it’s stalled out. My insulin levels are still very high, so I assume I’m still quite insulin resistant which is making the weight loss stubborn. I’ve added in some intermittent fasting of 18/6 as well as a few 24-hour fasts on the weekend where my blood ketone levels have reached about 1.0 mmol. My question for you guys is this: Does your experience show that a truly ketogenic diet lowers insulin levels? Some experts I’ve heard have said that research shows that insulin resistance is pretty much genetic which means you may not be able to drop it below some arbitrary level no matter what you do. Do you agree or disagree with this? Thanks for answering my question! Mark HIGH-FAT LOW-CARB, PERFECT MACROS NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship 2. Could incorrect pressure in a CPAP machine prevent weight loss despite achieving therapeutic levels of ketones? Hello Jimmy and The Doc, I have a question for you about sleep apnea. I have used a CPAP machine for 15+ years and I wear it faithfully every night. I started keto in January 2016 and have noticed since eating this way that I don't have as many aches and pains as I once did. I have only been able to lose 10 or so pounds, my blood pressure is somewhat high at 138/85, my AC1 is 5.7, and my urine cortisol levels are fairly high at 188. Could incorrect pressure in my CPAP machine have anything to do with not being able to lose weight despite the fact that I’m burning ketones according to the Ketonix which always shows me blowing red for higher levels of ketosis? Thank you for your time, Kurt 3. Can a high-dose Vitamin C IV treatment spike blood sugar levels alone or is there hidden glucose causing this? Hey Guys, We love your podcast and anxiously await the new episodes each week. My wife and I have been low-carb for two years and keto most of the time for the past year. I travel about 18 days a month so it’s hard to maintain a state of nutritional ketosis all the time. We are 60 and 61 years old and we keep our blood ketone levels between 0.5 to 1.0 most of the time. Our question is about rising blood sugar levels after getting a Vitamin C IV from our functional medical doctor. My wife and I have both been getting this treatment lately because our bloodwork showed that we are low on Vitamin B and C even though we take supplements for both of them. After the first Vitamin C IV treatment, my blood glucose level rose to 172 and my wife’s went to 284 about 1 hour after the treatment. Our normal fasting blood glucose levels are between 77-95 depending on how we ate the day before. Needless to say, we became concerned this would have a negative impact on our insulin resistance. When we asked our doctor about it thinking that there must be some glucose in the IV bag, she said that it was just a reaction to the high dose vitamin C and that there was no glucose in it. We had already paid for two treatments each, so we did it again this week and this time our blood sugar went up to 144 and 128 respectively an hour later. Have you ever heard of this kind of reaction or do you think that there was some glucose in the IV? Our doctor knows that we practice low-carb and she is monitoring us because she’s still quite skeptical.

Hello guys, Back in Episode 12 of Keto Talk, Dr. Nally mentioned that cortisol levels rise as a direct result of an injury or surgery and that depending on the extent of the damage to your body and the repair it needs, it might kick you out of ketosis for 2-12 months. So my question for you is this: When you are out of a state of nutritional ketosis during this recovery period and assuming that you stay on a ketogenic diet, what exactly is my body using for fuel during this time? And what is happening to all the dietary fat I am consuming? Thanks for a great and very informative podcast!

The new documentary film What The Health has a lot of people talking these days, but as word spread about the message this film is actually conveying, Jimmy decided to watch it for himself to see what all the fuss was about. Knowing this brand of propaganda could not stand without an official keto repsonse, Jimmy spent way more time than was healthy wading through off of the misinformation to bring you the truth about what these filmmakers are saying.

AFFORDABLE KETONE TESTING AT LAST

KEY QUOTE: “I needed to reduce inflammation, heal my brain, and get my immune system in check. I knew that ketones do all those things so I started a ketogenic diet for my health.” — Shawn Mynar

Here’s what Jimmy and Shawn talked about in Episode 73:

- What can I do to heal my adrenals and thyroid issues while on a ketogenic diet? Do I need to heal these prior to going keto?

Hey guys,

I have been attempting to do a ketogenic diet since last July and it works wonders for my MS symptoms (I first heard about it from Dr. Terry Wahls). The issue I'm having now is adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. I’m taking low-dose Synthroid, but I’m tired, nauseous, depressed, and feel cold all the time. Despite keeping my carbs under 30g total daily eating only whole foods, I have gained 20 pounds in two months. Since the adrenals and thyroid are connected, is it possible that I’m eating too low-carb for my stressed out adrenals? Or I am I not low-carb enough? You guys often say on Keto Talk that hormones dictate everything about your weight and health, but something is going on with me that I can’t seem to figure out. I feel like crap most of the time despite being on the healthiest diet I've ever eaten in my life—no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no sugar, 3-5 cups of fresh veggies, full fat coconut milk, grass-fed meats, cooking with bacon grease, and 1/2 cup of blueberries daily. Is there a way to heal my adrenals and thyroid with the ketogenic diet or do I need to heal these first before going full keto? Really love the podcast.

All the best,

Christy

1. Does keto take away your period and lead to undesirable health effects? Should I add in starch every few days to deal with these issues?

Hey there,

I recently read this article by a naturopath named Dr. Lara Briden: http://www.larabriden.com/are-you-eating-enough-get-period-amenorrhea/

In the post, she claims that eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet will take away your period. I've still not had a period since I started keto over 20 months ago. I also developed all four of the signs she mentioned: low T3 (non-Hashimoto's hypothyroid), hair loss, constipation, and insomnia. I average 5.5 hours of less-than-restful sleep per night with sleep aids and high-dose melatonin waking up every couple of hours. I'm desperate to know how I can tweak my ketogenic diet to favor fertility. My naturopath knows very little about keto and I’m not sure she can help me. I’ve been strict keto with 20/4 intermittent fasting for a while, so I wonder if I could get away with some starch every few days to see if that helps. Between my infertility and profoundly low estradiol, it just know it has triggered my binge eating.

Thanks so much for any help you can provide,

Tara

2. Should I eat both low-carb and low-calorie in order to get into ketosis and see the results I’m looking for?

Hi guys,

I have listened to all of your podcasts, some of them twice as I’ve become a sponge with the information. My question for you is about breast cancer and ketosis. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 1/2 years ago and have had radiation and on tamoxifen for over three years. Cancer is what led me to start listening to health podcasts. During the cancer treatments, I put on 5kg (11 pounds) and it all seemed to develop in my midsection. I have tried low-carb and even keto, but can’t seem to get into ketosis no matter what I do. You guys have said many times on your podcast that some women need estrogen to help with weight loss, but I’m wondering if perhaps I need to be eating low-carb AND low-calorie in order to get the best results. When I’ve done keto previous about 8 years ago when I was at a bodybuilding gym, I lost a significant amount of weight very quickly. But I just can’t seem to get there now. I also take antidepressants to help with hot flashes and realize these have a side effect of weight gain. Can you help me?

3. How can I get the benefits that ketosis provides my autoimmune arthritis without the unwanted weight loss that happens when I eat keto?

I have been enjoying your podcasts and reading your Keto Clarity book. I started on a ketogenic diet to help with my autoimmune arthritis and I think I've been making some progress. Unfortunately, I’m losing weight and I don’t need to be. I’m 5’2” tall and actually underweight at 91 pounds. My goal is to be at 105 pounds. Despite shoveling down 75% fat in my diet, I just keep losing weight. Tracking my nutrition with an online tracker, it says my calories are higher than are required for me and yet my weight keeps dropping despite the fact I feel good. Should I choose being in ketosis and controlling my arthritis while losing weight or eating a few more carbohydrates to get out of ketosis in order to get back to normal weight again but dealing with the arthritis?

Got any suggestions? I'd so love to get back some of my feminine curves again.

I’ve been keto for four months and I’m doing great losing 25 pounds and dropping my A1c from 5.6 to 5.0 in just two months of eating this way. My husband went keto at the same time as me and has lost 40 pounds. Needless to say, our doctor is ecstatic about our results. We’ve heard people joking about being careful when you go keto and normalize your hormones because it might just make getting pregnant easier—well SURPRISE, here comes baby #4!

Are there any recommendations about how to adjust the macronutrients of my ketogenic diet for the second and third trimester and even once I started breastfeeding? I usually eat around 80% fat in my diet with protein around 70g and carbs at 20g. I’m definitely making sure I consume at minimum of 2,000 calories daily so I don’t stress my Hashimoto’s or my adrenals that I’ve worked so hard to heal over the past four years. Should I eat a bit more protein as the pregnancy continues? You guys will find this interesting that the way I found out I was pregnant was my ketones suddenly dropped to 0.3 after always registering 1.5-3.0 and on a hunch we did a pregnancy test. Whammo bammo, pregnant. Crazy right?

I’m so thankful to be keto-adapted heading into this pregnancy and hoping it will keep my notorious severe morning sickness at bay this time around.

Thanks again!

Julie

- Is eating carbs a good way to lower blood sugar? And which is more important as a health goal—lowering blood glucose levels or insulin levels?

Hey guys,

I understand that blood glucose can rise on a ketogenic diet due to the physiologic glucose sparing effect you guys have discussed several times on the podcast. In his new book FAT FOR FUEL, Dr. Joe Mercola shares his solution to this by simply eating more carbs and thus trigger an insulin response to bring the glucose down. Of course, if you eat more carbohydrates in your diet to make this happen, it will invariably kick you out of ketosis. So in light of this, it begs the question: which is worse for you to have—higher glucose levels or higher insulin levels? Is there another way to bring blood glucose down without triggering insulin to go up? Maybe some light exercise would do the trick? Thanks for answering my question.

1. In light of my blood work results, is it possible keto isn’t right for me? If I want longevity, energy, and mental benefits, how should I eat?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thank you for all that you're putting out there regarding ketogenic living. I first came across you Jimmy when you did a podcast with Dave Asprey a few years back and have listened to all of your Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show and Keto Talk episodes ever since.

I've been experimenting with keto on and off for the past few years. I don't do it for weight loss since I'm a lean 32 year old male at 8% body fat with high muscle mass and in very good shape (I can run a sub-6 minute mile, deadlift 3x my body weight, etc.). I follow keto for constant energy, mental acuity and longevity purposes.

When measuring my blood glucose levels while in keto, I find that they're quite high: 100-120 fasting blood glucose and up to 140 postprandial. I'm aware of physiologic insulin resistance, but the numbers nonetheless concern me; I just had blood labs done and my HbA1c was 5.8, up from 5.2 which were my numbers a year ago while on a moderate carb diet.

My triglycerides have also gone up from 54 in February on moderate carb to 97 today. My total cholesterol has risen from 180 to 225 but that's to be expected on keto. My testosterone is a bit on the low side for my age at 450, but it’s been this way regardless of whether I'm on keto, moderate carb, or have taken a week off of training (I was hoping keto would raise it).

Dr. Dominic D'Agostino acknowledges that for certain people, keto simply isn't the answer. Although I feel healthy eating this way, my blood work results seem to indicate otherwise. Am I one of those people who flourishes on moderate carb eating and the occasional fast and keto just isn't for someone like me? It's worth noting that my mother who is in her mid-60's is in spectacular shape with great lab numbers without ever going to the gym and she has always eaten a carb-laden diet.

One more interesting note to share with you is my body composition is identical whether I’m eating keto or high carb. So, with longevity being one of my top priorities alongside stable energy and mental acuity, what nutritional approach do you think I should do to reach my goals?

Thanks a lot for your help!

2. Is it possible to create acidosis from your diet and exercise choices? How can you prevent this from happening?

Hi guys,

Thank you for your work as it's an absolute asset to so many of us. I started doing 2 workouts a day of weight lifting and running or walking. I’ve noticed I started having painful urination as well as my side started hurting recently. When I checked my urine ketone levels several times, they were always extremely dark. After reading a graph on Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt’s website about acidosis, I became concerned. I immediately ate a bunch of carbs from ice cream and other sources to try to deal with this issue and stop the pain by driving down the ketones. I also drank some baking soda mixed with water since I thought this had to do with acidity. Amazingly, 8 hours after doing this I STILL showed ketones on the urine ketone sticks. So then I ate some chili cheese fries bringing my total carb consumption that day to 500g.

It's now been 3 days later and my body had never stopped producing ketones. It went to small levels at one point when I skipped my workout for a day. I'm a type 2 diabetic with chronic kidney disease who's used straight keto for about a year and have never seen anything like this. If I have a carb-filled meal, this will usually kick me out of ketosis for 4-5 days. So, have you seen acidosis happen as a result of diet and exercise? What are some things I can do to prevent that from happening again?

Thanks for your insights on this!

3. Is there any added benefit to taking one month off from keto annually vs. constantly staying in nutritional ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I have listened to most of your Keto Talk podcasts as well as some LLVLC podcasts and they are both informative and entertaining. What I take from hearing people like Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Ted Naiman and Dr. Nally is that the hormone insulin is what controls and signals the storage or burning of fat and that lower insulin levels (outside of being a Type 1 diabetic) is healthier. It seems that intermittent fasting, keto, and exercise all lower insulin and improve health. Many of the arguments point to the evolution and hunter gatherer hypothesis of storing fat in times of plenty during the spring and summer and then burning stored body fat during the winter and when food was in shortage between animal kills. The problem with the modern-day SAD diet is that there are too many carbs in our diet that leads to elevated insulin levels which then results in insulin resistance and your body is constantly storing fat, never using it in times of need which never come, and leaves the individual perpetually hungry to eat and eat and eat.

My question for you guys is this: if we are designed to store and burn fat and alternate from using ketones and glucose as our fuel source, then isn’t this an argument for cycling in and out of ketosis on a regular basis? Since getting keto-adapted takes about 4-6 weeks for most people, why wouldn’t doing 11 months of keto with one month of a non-ketogenic diet be better than eating keto 24/7/365? I have not found any studies on this and I would imagine the change in diet would be good for the body to serve as reset for just one month a year. I know yo-yo dieting is bad for your overall health and that there is a risk of a relapse to your old ways when you get off of keto that could prevent you from going back to it again. But there might be real benefits to this as it probably better resembles how our ancestors evolved in their nutrition and may help reset your body to get better results after long-term ketosis. What do you think?

- Why does my health seemingly deteriorate when I go too low on carbs and improves again when I add back in rice and other carbohydrates?
 
Hey Jimmy and The Doc, 
 
I’m loving my new lifestyle change using fasting and a ketogenic diet to address my Hashimoto's and weight loss concerns. I started on New Year’s Day this year and I’m already down 44 pounds and feel fantastic most of the time. However, I have noticed that if I fast too much or keep my carbohydrate intake too low over a week that my health deteriorates with an increase in my level of fatigue, slower metabolism, severe depression, and thyroid symptoms rearing their ugly head. In my research into this, it all seems to point to reverse T3 levels which I’ve found is fixed when I eat a bowl of rice and start eating more carbs again. So how do I continue to lose weight, improve my health, and keep feeling great eating keto without these unwanted side effects? My daughter also suffers from this same thing, so there seems to be something to it. Any thoughts?
 
Thanks so much,
 
Lisa

  - Is genetic testing that claims I need to be eating a low-fat, higher-carb diet valid if I am enjoying my ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and Doc Nally, Thank you for doing what you do. My life has changed thanks to this podcast. I have a quick question you guys: I recently got my Pathway Genomics results and the report said that my genes would benefit from a LOW FAT, higher carb diet. I have been keto for a year and I was shocked to see this. The report suggested my fats should be comprised of 20-25% of my diet, protein 20-25% and carbs 50-55%! I shuddered when I read this. It also said my body can process monounsaturated fats better than animal fats. What gives? Do my genes just not lend themselves to a keto diet?

All the best,

Esma

1. Why did my symptoms of Raynaud’s syndrome seem to get worse when I started eating keto?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I went gluten free years ago and Paleo was the next natural step. I have had autoimmune issues my whole life and my doctors couldn’t figure it out. One of them once told me, "we usually only see these symptoms in overweight people", but overweight I am not. When first going Paleo, I made a drastic mistake without knowing it. The Paleo crowd was all about the bananas and potatoes back then so that's what I did. Even though I am not big fans of either of these they were the least offensive carbs and it seemed to help. A few months ago I decided to go with a ketogenic approach doing it the correct way this time. I still have fruit in the house for my kids but I have not touched it. I never had the low-carb flu and within a week was sleeping like a rock for the first time in years despite living the stressful life of being a single mom. Joint pain did not flare up as much and my migraines are not showing up as often. My question for you guys is this: I have always been plagued with Raynaud's syndrome. It lasts all year long, not just in the winter. I have noticed that since I do not feel hungry on a regular basis it is easy to go many hours without food while out running errands without noticing how long it has been. My Raynaud’s then rears it's ugly head and I feel it. I'm not sure if it's going too long on an empty stomach or something else happening, but the Raynaud's is the only thing that has gotten worse since I started eating keto. Do you know why this is happening? I am already taking a magnesium supplement to help. Even if you guys have no solution for me, I will just suck it up buttercup and deal with it as I have in the past because the benefits I am getting from nutritional ketosis far outweigh the cold hands and feet that I have always had to deal with anyway. Listening to Keto Talk, it is very clear to me that you guys have a goal of helping people and getting correct information out there. I am so glad I found your podcast.

Thank you both for your time and effort and keep up the great work.

2. Why did I start experiencing very sore spots on my skin when I decided to cheat on my low-carb, ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I recently found your podcast and have greatly enjoyed getting caught up on all the episodes! I have a question that might actually be a new one for you as I haven’t heard it discussed on your show before. I have been eating low-carb, ketogenic with weekly cheat days as Tim Ferriss outlines in his book The Four-Hour Body. After about six months of doing this, I noticed I would wake up with very sore spots on my skin following a cheat day. It seemed to be concentrated on my torso and sometimes on my upper arms, neck, and scalp. This soreness was on the surface of the skin, not the muscles or joints. The best way I can describe it is it felt like a giant bruise that was only painful when you pressed on it. My skin would be so sensitive that I would skip running or other exercise that day because the mere bouncing of my skin was too uncomfortable to bear. The surface area of skin that would be sore seemed to correlate positively with how much crappy carbage I splurged on the previous day. Interestingly, the first areas to become sore were the areas in which I tend to store fat, such as the love handles, and the soreness would radiate out from there. If I had a really obscene cheat day, then even my upper leg skin would get sore. Very surprisingly, this phenomenon did not go away when I went back to the high-carb Standard American Diet for a period of time. It seemed anytime I indulged in something particularly sugary/carby, my skin got sore. This soreness would only subside after a day of eating low-carb keto again. So my questions for you guys is this: What could be causing this? Is it just a rapid-onset generalized edema resulting from a significant increase in carbs? Why did it not begin occurring until a good 6+ months into eating low-carb and why did it persist after I went back on a high-carb diet? Have I permanently altered how my body reacts to carbs by going low-carb for so long? Finally, should I be concerned about this? While trying to find answers to these questions online, I saw this “sore skin” phenomenon mentioned by a couple of people on low-carb diet forums who claimed they never experienced this before going low-carb. But none of these references included any explanations other than "possible edema".

Thanks so much for your help and your wonderful podcast!

3. Can Adderall be having an adverse effect on getting into ketosis? And does keto do anything to help improve adult ADHD? Dear Keto Talk hosts, I am a 62-year old female and have been moving to keto through the usual progression—it started 20 years ago trying to eat local and real food, then on to WAPF, then Paleo, and now low-carb, ketogenic consuming 20-40g carbohydrates daily. Most of my carbs come from salad, kefir, cheese, and kombucha. My blood sugars have been coming down but I am still in the high 90s for fasting blood sugar in the morning. I have only seen .5 once on the blood ketone meter. I am trying to figure out what might be preventing ketosis for me and I have a couple of suspects. Because I have some of the MTHFR family of variations, my doctor has me on 1000 mcg of L-methylfolate and adenosyl/hydroxy B12. I am also taking 10 mg daily of Adderall. Would any of these be having an adverse effect on getting into ketosis? And does ketosis have any positive effect on improving adult ADHD? I’d really love to get off of that medication if at all possible. Thanks for any insights you can provide. Stephanie KETO TALK MAILBOX - Why can’t I stay in ketosis eating what seems to be a well-formulated low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I listen to your Keto Talk podcast all the time and I have been doing keto for nearly 2 months. I am 6'7" and weigh 220 pounds with 16% body fat. I started keto for all the health benefits, energy, and disease prevention it provides. I eat about 100g protein, less than 20g carbs, and 200g of fat. This all seems right to me and I am being very strict with it. I get lots of sleep, am not stressed, and have experimented with exercising a little and not doing any exercise. There’s only one problem: I JUST CANT STAY IN KETOSIS! I bought a blood ketone monitor and the highest reading I have seen is 1.2 for a very short 2-day period and most of the time I am less than 0.5. Every morning I wake up I am 0.2 and then it’ll rise to 0.6 mid day and once in awhile I'll get to 0.8 in the evening or sometimes it goes the other way and I'll drop back down to 0.3. I eat bacon and eggs in the morning with coffee, MCT oil, and full fat whipping cream as well as high-fat meats and cheeses or cream cheeses for lunch and supper. The frustrating thing for me is my wife is getting 2.5-3.5 on the ketone meter eating the exact same thing I am. HELP! I hope you have an idea why I can't stay in ketosis.

Thanks so much,

Andrew in Canada

- Is there concern about very high levels of bile acid from a high-fat ketogenic diet leading to an increased cancer risk?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I was listening to Dr. Rhonda Patrick on Joe Rogan’s podcast where she mentioned that bile acid, namely, deoxycholic acid, is necessary to emulsify fat for absorption in the intestine and that a high consumption of fat – over 60% of calories - on a regular basis means the body is subject to higher levels of this acid. She stated outright that deoxycholic acid in higher than usual quantities causes damage to the DNA, even going so far as describing it as carcinogenic. Dr. Patrick noted that a ketogenic diet will ultimately result in the failure of the enzymes whose function is to repair DNA and thus will put the person at greater risk of cancer.

I am a Type 2 diabetic and have maintained a ketogenic diet for the past year. I was persuaded to adopt this diet by reading Keto Clarity and am regularly in a state of nutritional ketosis. My last HbA1c was 5.2% and my fasting insulin level was 4. I can’t imagine adopting some other approach despite the concerns about the higher levels of deoxycholic acid required to emulsify the fat. But is Dr. Patrick correct in her assessment of this cancer risk with keto? Thanks for your help!

1. How do you handle dealing with hypoglycemic episode when you go on a ketogenic diet? Does adding in carbs resolve the issue?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

Thanks for a great podcast! I really enjoy the information, and particularly when The Doc geeks out on us. My question for you guys is about hypoglycemia. If a person starting keto experiences a hypoglycemic episode, what’s the best way to deal with it? I can do 2-3 days of a keto diet but then on the 3rd or 4th morning I wake up with low blood sugar levels and experience nausea, feeling shaky, unfocused, and sometimes seeing brown spots. My blood glucose dips into the 40s and resolves after eating an apple, or some raisins, or some sweet potato. But then I feel like crap for the whole day. I don’t get this reaction when I simply eat lower carb with some sweet potatoes or fruit during the day. But I really want to experience all the full benefits of being ketogenic. I know I can't possibly be the only one who struggles with this.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

2. What is inflammation and why is it the evil bogeyman in our health? How exactly does a ketogenic diet lower inflammation?

Hey guys,

The keto community tends to throw around the topic of inflammation A LOT without much explanation about what it is. I think I know what it means, but I'm not 100% sure and I would venture to guess that most people don't. Can you address this on the podcast and how exactly a ketogenic diet helps lower it?
Thanks for your help,

Rob

3. Does consuming fermented dairy like cultured butter cause a rise in insulin to cause hunger? And will eating this kick me out of ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show! Although I’ve been at a healthy weight all my life, I’ve decided to follow a ketogenic diet to have a more positive relationship with food and to balance my moods. Your podcast has greatly inspired me! I recently bought a pack of cultured butter at the grocery store and after having some for the first time, I noticed that I was craving more of it which usually never happens when I consume fat. After doing some research I discovered that fermented dairy products tend to have a higher glycemic index than non-fermented. What is the impact of cultured butter on the hormones that control hunger and cravings? And could consuming fermented dairy products knock me out of ketosis?

- Is it common knowledge that the AMA promotes ketosis for a greater sense of well-being and pain reduction at the end of life?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I just lost my grandfather to pancreatic cancer. He chose to have no artificial nutrition through a feeding tube and IV in the last few days of his life. I believe that this allowed him to go into ketosis and eased his passing. I also found a reference to ketosis being beneficial at the end of life in an American Medical Association (AMA) publication. In researching this further, I found the following statement in the Education for Physicians on End-of-life Care Handbook by the AMA:

"Educate families about the studies that demonstrate that parenteral or enteral feeding of patients at the end of their lives neither improves symptom control nor lengthens life. Help them to understand that anorexia may be protective, as the resulting ketosis can lead to a greater sense of well-being and diminish pain."

So my questions for you guys is this: Is this common knowledge in the medical community in general? We were never told this by any of my grandfather’s medical caretakers and instead were encouraged to have him drink Boost with 20-30g sugar/serving right to the end. In light of this, could exogenous ketones have helped him ease the pain more and remain lucid enough to engage with the family a period of time longer before passing?

I really hope that you can share about this on Keto Talk. At least this community may be able to help a dying loved one by NOT pushing sugary drinks on them even when the nurses and doctors insist. Or possibly asking for no dextrose in their IV, especially if the patient has already said that he is ready to pass. It may be helpful to share the AMA reference with family members and caregivers, and explain what ketosis is and that the patient may not be feeling hunger. Those of us who have experienced ketosis know this firsthand.

It takes courage to go against mainstream thinking, especially in the world of medicine and health. I appreciate that you do it every day with your podcasts, blogs, and books.

Thanks so much,

Kristy

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 66:

Today we have a special treat for all you Ketonians out there. This bromance between Jimmy and Adam began way back in Episode 948 of The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show and continues today with Keto Talk. Dr. Nally was invited by Jimmy to be one of the featured speakers on the 2014 Low-Carb Cruise which we shared on this podcast a couple of months back. But the video and audio footage with Dr. Nally became corrupted and unusable. To remedy that, Jimmy invited Dr. Nally to come on the podcast for a fresh interview that we know you’re gonna love.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Nally discuss how the interest in low-carbohydrate nutrition is becoming more attractive to physicians, the surprised response he gets from his patients as he teaches Paleo-based low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic principles, how the Internet has made patients much more savvy from a medical health perspective, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced wholeheartedly for people with diabetes, the progression of diabetes that happens over time, how fat-phobia is driving the policies about nutrition and health, why patient data matter doesn’t seem to matter to the policymakers, the lack of will and financial ability to do a credible nutritional health study, why insulin resistance seems to be completely ignored as a key marker in chronic disease, how blood pressure drops like a rock when you start low-carb, the cascade of improvements in health markers that happen when you cut your carbohydrate intake, the incredible improvements in the key cholesterol markers like triglycerides on a low-carb diet, there is no drug that will drop triglycerides as much as low-carb, what’s going on with patients who don’t see results despite eating ketogenic, how most of the artificial sweeteners (especially Ace-K commonly found in most diet sodas) and fake creamers won’t raise blood sugar but will raise insulin levels, why food quality is such an incredible aspect of a good low-carb, ketogenic diet, the disconnect with what real food is, how he uses aquaponics to create a sustainable food supply, how stress impacts people with an insulin response like eating 10 slices of bread instead of one, the strategies he tells patients to reduce the stress, why exercise has to become an enjoyable part of your life, how he sees atherosclerotic plaque (CIMT) in his patients reduced with a low-carb ketogenic diet, and the amplification of side effects that happen when a low-carb dieter takes a statin drug.

TESTIMONIAL:

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I want to thank you for all you do! I listen to your podcast all the time and wanted give you an update on my 76-year old mom who I recent put on keto. I fought all the naysayer doctors and others all along the way to tell them she didn’t need so much medication for diabetes, cholesterol, and blood pressure if I could change her diet to low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic. She was taking 500mg Metformin twice daily, but since going keto she’s been able to stop taking the Metformin. I cannot tell you how happy I am and how thankful that I found this podcast. Between Keto Talk and The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show, I have been able to educate myself on not only my own health, but also the health of my mother. Thank you again for all you do!

THE KETO DIET BY LEANN VOGEL

- Does the ketogenic diet help smooth the withdrawals associated with transitioning away from alcohol? Can starting keto work if you’re drinking alcohol?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Muscles,

I’ve listened to your podcasts for years, Jimmy, and recently finished the Keto Clarity audiobook. I’m sold on keto. I’ve been eating this way for a little less than a week, my usual sugar cravings are completely gone, and I feel great. But I’m doing this all with my husband in mind as well. He has horrible neuropathy in his feet probably because of pre-diabetes. He’s always been a guy who was thin and never gained weight despite being a horrible eater. Here’s the deal—I think he’s probably gonna be very resistant to making any changes in his diet and lifestyle, but the hardest part for sure is that he self-medicates with wine at the end of the day. His feet hurt, he’s tired, and he uses the wine as pain management. He’s got a bona fide addiction to it and I’m wondering how the ketogenic diet and alcohol withdrawal symptoms play together if at all. Any tips on how to ease this transition? Finally, would eating keto actually help with the symptoms or does he need to be alcohol-free before beginning on nutritional ketosis?

Thank you for your help with this!

1. Is a ketogenic diet taxing on the adrenals? Or can ketosis be beneficial in helping with irritability, fatigue, and sleeplessness?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Nally!

I'm so in love with The Doc and your lighthearted, yet very informative podcast! I love it when you guys brainstorm and drop knowledge for all of us to use and apply to our lives. Thank you! I recently had some lab tests done to see why I've been so irritable lately. I become wired at 9PM even though I’m physically tired and need rest. I just can’t sleep and I’m dragging myself out of bed in the morning. I had a baby just over year ago and she keeps me awake taking care of her, too. Here are some of the key markers from my labs:

Cortisol AM =12.5
DHEAS = 301
Testosterone total = 45
Testosterone, free = 8.4

I am still breastfeeding and started keto one week ago dropping 11 pounds so far. My naturopath prescribed me a prescription of a very low dose diuretic to lower my testosterone as well as various vitamins and supplements. I'm worried that this may be the beginning of PCOS as a direct result of insulin resistance or even a weird case of adrenal fatigue since my numbers are reversed from what they used to be. Since I've heard keto can be taxing on the adrenals, should I continue on with my ketogenic approach? Or can ketosis actually be beneficial in some way for someone like me?

Thanks a million times over for your help,

2. What does it mean to “eat to satiety” on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love your podcasts Keto Talk and Fasting Talk! Thank you for providing such a valuable service. I’ve read Keto Clarity and The Complete Guide To Fasting, but I don’t recall if this issue was specifically addressed: What exactly does it mean to “eat to satiety”? What does this actually look and feel like? I can’t really wrap my head around what you are saying by the phrase and would greatly appreciate it if you share more about this. I’m really looking forward to reading the book you guys are working on called The Keto Cure coming in September and I’ve already pre-ordered my copy.

Take care,

Meg

KEY QUOTE: “After getting off the crappy carbage and going ketogenic for about a month, I had energy I'd never had and the pain brought on by the grains and sugar subsided.”  – Jimmy Moore

3. What happens to ketone levels when you begin to consume more carbohydrates/protein than your body needs? Immediate or gradual drop in blood ketones?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the show! I listen during my runs and while strength training. Regarding the issue of too many carbs or too much protein, is the relationship between ketone levels and carbs a step function or a linear relationship? If I eat one gram too many of carbohydrates and/or protein, will that kick me out of ketosis completely or does it slowly drop depending on how much extra carbs and protein I eat? In other words, if my blood ketone levels were at 1.4 before eating an extra gram of carbs or protein than my body needs, does that immediately kick me out of ketosis or do ketones merely fall?

Thanks!

KETO TALK MAILBOX

- Why do low-carb, high-fat experts refer to carbs as the body’s preferred fuel source and ketones as an alternative fuel source? Isn’t excess glucose a toxin?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I love the geek speak on Keto Talk and I can't get enough of it. You guys do a wonderful job, so please keep it up. My question is about carbohydrate being referred to as the preferred energy source for the body. I hear this statement frequently and I even hear it from LCHF people/experts like yourselves saying that "carbs are the body's preferred fuel source and fat/ketones are an alternative fuel source.”

People who say this use the logic that the body switches to using carbs first and therefore it must be "preferred.” When I read what happens when you ingest alcohol, the body shuts off/slows down fat and carb usage and switches to burning the alcohol. Alcohol is a toxin and it floats around in the blood and goes to organs including the brain which is why we feel drunk until the liver can detoxify it. So as an energy source it isn't "preferred" but the preference for the body is to get rid of it.

Switching back to carbs/glucose which we know can be toxic at high doses and the pancreas has to pump out more insulin to prevent that from happening, by default the body converts any excess glucose into fats and stores them in the body. In my eyes, I see that as the same as alcohol and not as a "preferred energy source" but barely even an alternative energy source. Can you please clarify this for me?

Thank you for all you do,

Tom

Andrew Scarborough - Brain Cancer survivor thanks to the ketogenic diet and other therapies - Here’s the relevant passage:
 
“There is even a book coming out soon called 'Keto Cure', which I feel is an irresponsible title and ironically will serve as more of a hindrance to this research rather than support it. I like Jimmy Moore as a person, but there is no way I can support this endeavour and would like to take this opportunity to distance myself from anything like this. I use my words very carefully and cautiously on purpose. You will notice that I will never say the word 'cure', because I believe these therapies do not cure, but have the potential to manage the condition as you would with a chronic disease. I see it as being like HIV in how we must think of treating it, with multiple agents targeting multiple metabolic pathways and supporting the immune system. There is clearly a strong role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, drugs targeting metabolic defects, and both nutritional and supplemental methods of inducing ketosis in all of this that would need to be personalised for the individual's tumour type and their unique physiology. Nothing works in isolation and the ketogenic diet on its own is certainly not a 'cure all', as some like to market it.”
 
- The long nightmare witch hunt that Professor Tim Noakes has had to endure in a South African courtroom is now mercifully over--Verdict: NOT GUILTY!
This #lowcarb #highfat diet proponent and Real Meal Revolution author had been in and out of court since The Association of Dietetics there filed a complaint with the Health Professions Council over a tweet Noakes made about weaning a baby onto an LCHF nutritional approach. Anyone who had been following this story realizes this was a personal vendetta against Noakes who is deeply revered in South Africa for his promotion of the life-changing low-carb, high-fat #Banting diet.
The HPCSA announced today that they found no proof of unprofessional conduct by Noakes for that advice requested by a breastfeeding mother on Twitter. They ruled Noakes was not acting as a medical professional but as the author of a book on LCHF instead. When the verdict of this trial came down, Prof. Noakes raised his fist in the air before breaking down holding his head in his hands. All of us in the #ketogenic community owe this great man a huge debt of gratitude for his courage to stand up for what is right. We're at a crossroads right now in the #nutrition debate where people are finally doubting the veracity of the failed #lowfat diet approach. Hopefully this verdict empowers and reinvigorates others to speak out even stronger in favor of a diet that greatly improves health through the lowering of inflammation and insulin levels.

- If you don’t have any metabolic health issues to deal with, then why would going keto be any better than a raw vegan diet?
 
Dear Jimmy and The Doc,
 
I think my question for you may be slightly cheeky, but here it is. Listening to vegan advocates like Durianrider of 30 Bananas A Day fame, it seems he is quite convinced and determined to stand by his raw vegan lifestyle and this got me thinking—why are all of his blood markers, body fat, and energy levels so good if everything he believes about nutritional health is exactly the opposite of what we know and understand about keto? I am a 34 year old male, 6' tall and weigh 185 pounds. I have never had poor health, been obese, been pre-diabetic, or had any of the other metabolic issues that drive most people to a low-carb, high-fat diet. So why would going keto be a good thing for someone like me? I am sincerely asking this because Durianrider and his raw vegan approach seems to make a compelling argument to go that route to get even leaner. With all the criss-cross availability of nutritional info flying around the web, I find myself suddenly becoming very confused.
 
Can you help?
 
Best regards,

1. Is it true that lowering your carb intake while eating a ketogenic diet lower mucus production leads to dry eyes?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles!
 
I’m so happy I found this podcast and have been binge listening ever since. Keto Talk is a breath of fresh air compared to all the contradictory information floating around out there. I'm trying to get keto-adapted again and this time I plan on doing it for the long haul. I do pretty good getting into ketosis no problem. I can always tell when my blood sugar levels aren't zig zagging, I’m needing less sleep, and my cravings and hunger are manageable.
 
I’ve noticed that when I drop my carbohydrate intake to less than 30g a day to be ketogenic, my eyes becomes severely dry. I can't open then at all in the middle of the night and end up having to use eye drops immediately upon waking up and that stings like the dickens. I've gone to see my eye doctor about this and everything checks out okay. I've read from various people online that decreasing carbs lowers mucus production. Is this true? If so, then is there anything I can do to deal with this issue while keto? I have 20 bottles of eye drops tucked away in every nook and cranny of my home because I can't live without them!
 
I've been waiting for the right ketogenic resource for a long time and you guys are it! Thanks for all you do!

2. What can my Type 2 diabetic ketogenic-eating mom taking insulin do to wean herself off the insulin to help in her weight loss efforts?
 
Hi Jimmy and Adam! 
 
My family has been doing keto for a few months and we’re all loving the health improvements we're experiencing. My 37-year old brother has lost almost 50 pounds, I’ve lost lost 25, and my 68-year old dad almost 20. Both my parents are Type 2 diabetics and their A1c has gone down. My dad was only on Metformin and his doctor has said he can go off medication now that his A1c is 5.4. But my 65-year old mom has been on insulin for over 10 years and has not been able to lower her dosage of 40 units of long-lasting insulin in the morning and 8 units of fast-acting insulin with each meal despite the fact her blood sugar levels are regularly under 120. Initially after going keto, she was able to discontinue the insulin she was taking with meals and still get her blood sugar down to 85. However, recently her blood sugar has been creeping back up again to around 120 requiring her to start taking insulin with meals again. 
 
My question for you is this: why would she need that much insulin in a day if she is staying below 20g of carbs with only moderate protein? My mom meticulously tracks her food intake on a daily basis. Of all of us in the family, she is the only one who hasn’t seen great weight loss success (just 10 pounds in several months) and I think it has something to do with the insulin she is taking. She’s much hungrier than the rest of us are if she doesn’t eat by the clock throughout the day. What can she do to reduce her need to take insulin and rev up her weight loss efforts? She’s quite discouraged right now. 
 
Thanks for all you do…you're literally saving lives!

3. Does a ketogenic diet help improve or completely heal rosacea?
 
Hi Jimmy and the Doc,
 
I’ve never heard you guys address rosacea (reddening of the nose, the cheeks near the nose, and the center above the forehead) on the show before, so here’s my question. I have this condition and these areas become very dry. When I first started eating keto, the condition went away quickly but then slowly returned. I measure my blood ketone levels and they stay between 1.5-2.5 mmol. Can a low-carb, high-fat diet help heal my rosacea?
 
Thanks,

- What is the mechanism of insulin resistance? Why does it take some people a long time to reverse insulin resistance despite going keto?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,
 
I have a geekish question about insulin resistance for The Doc to get all nerdy on. What exactly is the actual mechanism of insulin resistance?  It seems to me there are at least two components involved: 
 
1) The number or conformation of the insulin receptors on cell membranes are reduced or changed so that insulin cannot signal particular cells.  This seems to happen at different rates in different tissue types (i.e. muscle cells typically become insulin resistant with a lowering of the number of receptors or change conformation before fat cells)
 
2) It seems that some people tend to be "hyper-secretors" of insulin.  In other words, their beta cells secrete more insulin than someone else with the exact same glucose load.  
 
I understand how lowering blood glucose and thus insulin will help to correct the low receptor numbers because as the insulin goes down the cells will upregulate the insulin receptors (they will listen more carefully because insulin is whispering). But what can be done about the hyper-secretion of insulin? Does lowering the body burden of insulin also influence the beta cells to secrete less insulin? And why does it take so long in some people to see their insulin resistance reverse even after months or years of ketogenic eating? Finally, why are some people prone to insulin resistance and others seem almost immune to it no matter what they eat?
 
Thanks for the great podcast.  I look forward to it every week.
 
Stay geeky,
 
William

- Am I getting severe leg cramps from my high-carb cheats or from working out my legs while in a ketogenic state?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been low-carb/keto for the past two years. A few months ago I started getting pretty severe leg cramps that would wake me up at night. I lift heavy weights 2-3 days a week and I noticed I would tend to get the leg cramps a few hours after leg workouts. To help with the leg cramps, every night before bed I mix an electrolyte drink of 5g of magnesium, 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp of potassium. I also try to have a cup of homemade bone broth daily and add more salt to it as well. When I drink the electrolyte drink daily, my leg cramps do not occur.

Whenever I have any sort of high-carb cheat meal, within an hour or two I get severe leg cramping. I have been strict keto of 20g total carbs and moderate protein of between 60-90g since March 2017. I have tested my blood ketones and I am getting readings of 0.5-0.8 mmol. I cheated last Sunday on Easter chocolates and three hours later I had severe leg cramps yet again. I also just returned from a two-day hiking event and took my electrolyte supplement both days.

I am sore today but do you think the leg cramps is from the hiking or the high-carb load? I just find it suspicious and almost predictable that if I cheat, the leg cramps come on. Any insight is appreciated.

Thank you,

Sara

1. Can a ketogenic diet help delay the onset of hair loss from Male Pattern Baldness?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I've only really discovered podcasts in 2016. I guess I'm just old-school for a 29-year-old. Since discovering your podcast, it has literally taken center stage in my life. Thank you for ALL the incredible answers, insights, and obvious passion for keto! You really keep me and my fellow Ketonians inspired! My question for you is about Male Pattern Baldness. I've come to understand that through ketosis, testosterone levels go up, so could being in ketosis beginning in my 20’s with no signs of hair loss yet actually prevent hair loss? Is there any research about this?

Thanks for all your wisdom on all things keto!!!

Best,

Armand

2. Can eating keto produce a false elevated white blood cell count?

Hello Jimmy & Doc Nally,

I enjoy your show and am learning so much from you guys after being keto for a couple of years. I wanted to ask you about something my family doctor has brought to my attention over the past year or so. He has told me three times that I have a raised white blood count. He initially thought that I might have a bladder infection. I had no symptoms of illness, so this shocked me to hear this from my doctor. Is there any connection between eating keto and having a false elevated white blood cell count? Have you ever seen this before?

Thanks for your help with this question and I look forward to a lot more Keto Talk!

3. Can you go into more details about why some Ketonians deal with a pounding irregular heart rate and corresponding sleep issues?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Back in Episode 37, you answered a question about heart rate and sleep. But the answer did not identify the problem nor did it give a solution. I am having the same irregular pounding of my heart and sleep loss since I started keto. Normally you guys do research and give an answer that explains the cause behind the issues asked about and then you share what to do about it. But it seems like you swept the problem under the rug and gave a ”there's something else going on" response. But I’m sure a lot of other people have this problem and it deserves a real answer. I live keto and won't go back to my previous diet, but I still want to solve the pounding irregular heart rate and sleep problems since going keto.

Thank you for all your help and energy spent to spread the keto message,

- Is there a way to quantify the amount of ketones being burned and used by the body? What percentage of ketones go to the various parts of the body?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Loved meeting you guys at the Metabolic Therapeutics conference in Tampa, Florida earlier this year. I wanted to ask a question about how to quantify the ketone bodies being produced at any given time. The problem with testing blood ketones is it only gives you a snapshot of the ketones being produced in the blood, but not necessarily what is being burned at any given moment. Over time once you become keto-adapted, beta-hydroxybutyrate levels decrease ostensibly because they are being used more efficiently. In other words, a 1.0 mmol blood ketone reading of something who has been eating keto for a couple of years might actually be identical to a keto newbie getting a reading of 6.0 mmol. So, how can we measure the amount of ketones being burned and their distribution to the various parts of the body, especially the brain? Is there any way to know what percentage of ketones go to the various functions in the body?

I look forward to hearing what you have to share about my questions.

Elena

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you for putting my question on the air in Episode 60 where I shared about the atrocious low-fat, high-carb diet they wanted me to eat for my fatty liver. I wanted to update you on my appointment with the surgeon last Wednesday. He insisted I eat that diet they recommended to shrink my liver enough to have surgery in May. But I am sticking with the ketogenic approach that I know works for this. My blood sugar is down to 83 mg/dL and I’ve had no hunger and feel so much better. Thank you for such an inspiring podcast.

- Torn between low-fat or low-carb diets

- Can consuming foods high in saturated fat lead to an increase in endotoxin levels?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

What do you guys think about Brad Pilon’s take on saturated fats and endotoxins.

Gregg

Email comments from Brad Pilon:

In research, a super reproducible way to increase a person's endotoxin levels is to make them drink 3/4 of a cup of heavy cream.

Drink some cream that's high in saturated fat and 1 hour later all the markers of endotoxin damage skyrocket.

In fact, ANY MEAL that is high in saturated fat can create this type of endotoxin impact.

Endotoxins come from your gut bacteria and are associated with inflammation, arthritis, atherogenesis, insulin resistance, weight gain and even depression. You want to do what you can to protect yourself from endotoxins entering your body.

So should you avoid saturated fats like the devil? Are all those Paleo people wrong?

No.

You just have to make sure you have some fruit or fruit juice - This simple step will help prevent the rise in endotoxins, and the damage that they cause.

If you’re having bacon and eggs, have some orange slices.

Having Creme Brule? Have some Blueberries too.

Easy Peasy.

Butter or olive oil? Eggs or no? New nutritional review cuts through the myths.

1. Should I be concerned with a higher level of Firmicutes in my gut health which supposedly puts me at a greater risk for obesity?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I’ve been a listener since the first episode and enjoy listening to your podcast. I’ve gained so many valuable insights and appreciate the immense support you bring us as community of “Ketonians.” I have a question that I don’t think you’ve covered yet regarding intestinal microbiome and keto. I recently had my gut bacteria analyzed by Ubiome that indicated a major skew in the direction of more Firmicutes compared with Bacteroidetes at a 5.8:1 ratio. According to their commentary on my results, this makes more more susceptible to obesity.

So my question is this: Should I be concerned about this seemingly poor ratio of Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes that has happened since I started eating ketogenic? Or is this association of a preponderance of Firmicutes with a higher risk of obesity only hold up in the context of the Standard American Diet where we know eating too much fat in the presence of high amounts of refined carbs frequently result in obesity? Thanks for your help with this question.

2. How can eat keto when I have Variegate porphyria requiring me to eat more carbohydrates in my diet?

Hi Jimmy,

I love your Keto Talk podcast so much it overrides all other podcasts for me. In 2014, I made a commitment to get healthy at the age of 64 after a career in IT with a poor diet, lifestyle, and genetic issues that put me in a very unhealthy state. Eating a Paleo/primal diet, I am now down 30 pounds from my highest weight and all of my key blood markers are good with the exception of LDL and total cholesterol. But I’m afraid I can’t eat keto because I have hemochromatosis (high iron) and Variegate porphyria. Eating primal has significantly improved my iron overload, liver enzymes, and the time between needing to do a phlebotomy. While my iron overloaded liver seems to love low-carb, high-fat, my porphyria doesn't. I visited the Mayo Clinic to confirm the porphyria diagnosis I was told to eat 400g carbs daily. With the primal lifestyle I usually eat around 150-200 grams carb per day. However when I try to go lower than that the porphyria kicks in and I get increased pain and complications in the muscle and nerve tissues. It seems porphyria needs carbs which runs counter to my desire to be ketogenic. Is there a way for me to eat keto while also eating to feed the porphyria? Thank you for your help.

Debbie

3. If you spread the carbs out throughout the day, does that create a lower insulin release?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

Do people in general have less of an insulin release if carbs are spread out over the course of the day then eating them all at once? When I use to eat a normal carb diet, the theory was to eat smaller portions as a means of keeping insulin levels low. Would something like this help for someone who is very insulin resistant? I'm fairly insulin sensitive, so I use keto to stay healthy. I've been eating keto for about four months and enjoy doing n=1 experiments to see how my body reacts to any changes I make. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank for all the info you guys provide to us and I always look forward to your new episodes. I wish you guys would create a forum for your large Ketonian community to talk to each other and find out what topics are hot in the world of keto.

Your faithful listener,

Matthew

- Do I need to eat a high-carb diet prior to visiting a very high elevation for a few weeks to utilize oxygen better?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Nally,

Thank you for such an informative and funny podcast. It's such a great companion for me on my long drives. I have a question on doing keto while at high altitude. I live close to sea level and will be going on a business trip to a place at 17,000 feet above sea level soon for a total of 2 1/2 weeks. The client has advised us that we need to eat a high carb diet (75% carbs) in order to use oxygen efficiently at that elevation. My understanding is that when we are in ketosis we don't need to be as concerned with absorption of oxygen as we don't need it for the fermentation process to produce energy from glucose. Is this correct? If not, should I be eating high-carb in preparation for this this? Also, do you have advice on how to optimize energy levels in this situation?

Much regards,

Sorina

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 61:

From last week’s episode, the difference in proteins found in chicken eggs vs. duck eggs

Our thoughts on KetoKademy event in Orlando, Florida

Article in the Southwest Airlines March 2017 magazine:

 

 

- Why do I have such an insatiable hunger on my ketogenic diet? Is it hormone related?

Dear Jimmy & Adam,

We actually found your Keto Talk podcast by accident as my partner and I were recommended to listen to another keto podcast and found yours by mistake instead. We’re so glad we did as we’ve listened to nearly every episode and love it. Keep up the awesome work.

I have Hashimoto's, so I am keen to see if keto can help with controlling my thyroid and hormones. I am 32 years old, 5’7”, and weigh 168 pounds. I lost 22 pounds on the hCG diet, but need a more sustainable way of eating to keep the weight off. My question for you is about this insatiable hunger I felt during Phase 2 of hCG that has continued with keto. I thought it would subside with all the fat I’m eating, but it has not. All I can think about is finding more food, especially meat and fat. This food obsession is unrelenting and I’m at a loss about what to do. I’m continuing to gain weight and I’m frustrated by this.

My supplement intake includes Magnesium, Selenium (to help with Estrogen), activated B complex, Adrenotone (Adrenal herbal supplement to assist with Adrenals), high dosage Vitamin C (ph balanced variety), probiotics and a colloidal mineral complex. I also take Desiccated Thyroid Extract 45mg and naturally derived progesterone cream (applied from day 12 of cycle to menses). I drink plenty of water (about 3-4 liters per day), eat plenty of salt, and consume lots of raw organic grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. I steer clear of dairy due to the rapid weight gain I get from it with the exception of butter. My urine ketones are on the low end, so I realize that’s probably part of the reason for my struggle.

I understand this insatiable hunger is somehow hormone related, but I am wondering if you are able to explain further what might be going on and what physiological processes are going on to cause this. Thank you so much for what you do! I am in awe of your wealth of knowledge and appreciate what you are doing for all us Ketonians out there.

Take care and keto on!

1. Can a ketogenic diet help health the fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome brought on by deficient hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

You guys are transforming lives with your podcast and you’ve made me feel like a keto evangelist when the topic comes up in my circles. You are to carbaholics what AA is to alcoholics. I have Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome and using the ketogenic diet over the past 4 months has enabled me to improve these conditions greatly.

I got Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue while doing daily cycling training rides for up to 3 hours after work while being deficient in Testosterone, Growth Hormone, and Thyroid issues as a result of having Empty Sella Syndrome. The stress of that combination has set me up for this illness. Sadly my diet was loaded with carbage for decades and thankfully I’m now 100% ketogenic for life at the age of 49. My hope is keto will help me recover along with appropriate hormone replacement. Is this possible?

Thanks guys!

David

2. Will consuming 30g carbs or less with IF cause me to halt or rev up my weight loss efforts?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’m a healthy 34-year old Ketonian and need your help to clear up some confusion I’ve been hearing about keto and intermittent fasting. A nurse practitioner at a low-carb clinic told me that doing IF and going below 30g carbs daily will halt your weight loss. Another Ketonian says daily IF with 20g carbs daily for at least 30 days will help jumpstart my weight loss again. I’m currently keto-adapted and have been for quite a long time. Thanks so much for your help!

3. Should I be concerned that my ketone levels are so high early on in my ketogenic journey?

Hi Jimmy and Doc!

Loving your podcasts and listen on my daily walks! I am new to keto and learning everything I can about it soaking it in like a sponge. My question is regarding ketone levels. On Day 5 of starting my ketogenic diet, my ketones were high in the afternoon at around 8 using the Ketostix. I made sure I was plenty hydrated and my urine was clear. I tested again a couple of days later in the morning right after waking up and my ketones were also high. I Googled and searched all over to find any information about why I am experiencing such a high reading like this. Do I need to eat more carbs than the 10-12g daily I am currently eating? I feel fantastic and have tons of energy after having only a couple of days of the keto flu. I consume around 1400 calories a day and stick to 60g protein and 100g fat. I’m loving the food I get to eat now, but these higher ketone levels concern me. Should I be concerned?

- Is there an age that is too old to be on a ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been enjoying eating keto as a 72-year old woman and I have been blessed with excellent health and no medications. Despite being overweight, I have perfect health markers. I probably need to lose 50 pounds and I’m working on finding a local physician to help guide me on my ketogenic diet. One of the employees at this one clinic told me a woman my age should never be in ketosis. Am I too old to be ketogenic?

Thank you in advance,

Francesca

Scientists turn spinach leaf into working heart tissue

I Went 100 Percent Carb-Free for a Month: Here’s What Happened

- Is an insulin sensitive person always in ketosis? Why do ketones go up post-meal? Are they burning both fat and glucose simultaneously?

Hello Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

This is such a great podcast with down-to-earth, balanced, science-supported factual information about the use of a ketogenic lifestyle for healthy living. There is so much conflicting information out there and I trust you guys to keep things straight. I am fortunate to have changed my diet before any loss of insulin sensitivity. For the past couple of years, my husband and I have consumed a real foods-based Paleo template diet with moderate carbohydrate intake since we don’t have to be as careful about carb amounts as others since we are at a healthy normal weight. I am grateful for this! We do intermittent fasting and I consume one BIG lunch meal while my husband has two meals plus an evening snack. I never get more than a little hungry.

I’ve always assumed with consistent energy levels and a general lack of hunger that I was burning fat for fuel and making ketones. But after hearing you guys underscore the importance of testing for ketosis just to make sure and not assume, I got a Ketonix breath ketone analyzer. I’ve been using it to test the impact of food, exercise, and fasting on blood sugar and ketones. I've never had a Ketonix reading below 45 and it's even gotten into the 70s. We pushed it one night having a 3-ounce sugary chocolate bar and two hours post-prandial my blood sugar was back to 91 and ketones at 59. I love insulin sensitivity!

Here are my questions for you guys that I think other insulin-sensitive people may want to know about: Does it mean that I’m actually in ketosis all of the time when my blood sugar and ketones come back into line so quickly? And why do my ketones go UP after meals? You’d think the increase in blood sugar would diminish ketone production, but they always go up post-meal. Is it possible my body is so accustomed to burning fat for fuel that I’m burning BOTH fat and glucose simultaneously?

Thank you for helping everyone understand the benefits of being in a state of nutritional ketosis. You guys are terrific! Thanks so much for answering my questions.

Diet ‘reverses diabetes in just 10 weeks’, claims new study

1. Does having an APOE genotype of 3/4 make eating a ketogenic diet impossible because of cardiovascular risks?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thanks so much for Keto Talk. As a Masters of Nutrition student in Australia, I've been finding it fascinating mainly because as I'm learning more and more about nutrition, physiology, hormones and the body's response to different nutrients, the more a ketogenic diet just makes sense, especially for diabetes and obesity patients. I'm dumbfounded by how doctors treat insulin-resistant patients by giving them insulin, it just doesn't make any sense. The more I learn, the more I'm personally drifting away from what they're teaching me at Uni.

I currently eat a whole foods diet consisting mainly of non-starchy veggies, moderate protein and higher fat than the standard diet. I've not yet dabbled into keto yet, but I am interested in trying it for the mental clarity everyone talks about as well as helping me deal with some psoriasis. I have a question for you guys about my genes impacting my nutritional choices. I am an APOE 3/4 which supposedly puts me at high risk for cardiovascular disease and it is recommended that I eat a lower fat diet with a fat/protein/carbohydrate ratio of 20/25/55 while minimizing saturated fat and processed carbohydrates as well as consuming antioxidant-rich foods. Am I doomed to eat this way or can someone with a APOE 3/4 eat keto without putting themselves at risk for heart disease?

Thanks again for all the great work guys, keep it up!

2. Should I feel guilty about eating a ketogenic diet because of the high gas emissions produced in the creation of keto staple foods?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I realize you both have chickens and grow your own veggies in your home garden, so your ketogenic diets are at least partially environmentally sustainable. Because of the high amount of gas emissions caused by the creation of beef, butter, and many of the other keto staples, I’m finding myself feeling guilty about consuming this diet. I realize all the information about the health benefits of keto, but I am wondering if you two could comment on the environmental sustainability of the diet and any tips for improving it?

Thanks,

Nate

3. Why would you want to eliminate eggs and dairy from your ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

I love Keto Talk because it provides so much clarity! I love your books Keto Clarity and The Ketogenic Cookbook because they make this life so simple! Recently I came across a book from JJ Virgin on food intolerance where she encourages people to eliminate eggs and dairy. But these seem to be a really healthy fat and one or both of these are used in almost every ketogenic recipe out there. What is your view on eliminating these and why would you do that?

Best Regards,

Lydia

- Can a ketogenic diet help with fatty liver reduction?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a brand new listener to your podcast and desperately need your advice. I’ve got a bariatric appointment coming up next week and have already had one abandoned gastric sleeve due to my liver starting to tear when they tried to move it. The very low-calorie diet they had me on previously (see below) was terrible and left me craving carbs all day. Would a ketogenic diet help with my fatty liver reduction?

In the last week, I have reduced my fasting glucose down from 232 to 168 by going low-carb/high-fat. I am taking a Milk Thistle supplement, BerberinePlus, Choline and Lecithin. I currently weigh 341 pounds and my psoriasis on my hand has virtually disappeared. Thanks to going keto, I have had no carb cravings in the past week. Once I have had my surgery, I plan on following low-carb/keto for life. Between the reduced appetite of the operation and ketosis, I will be unstoppable.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

The Scientist Harnessing 'Toxic Fat'

- Why is The Doc so obsessed with bacon when it includes sugar in the ingredients?

Hello Jimmy and Doc,

I've been listening to Keto Talk almost every day since I’ve found you. Thank you very much for this very valuable resource. I gotta ask you something that’s been bugging me, though—what's up with The Doc's love of bacon? Every bacon package I've ever looked at has sugar, maple syrup, or both in the ingredients list. Is the sugar amount so negligible that we don’t need to worry about it?

Thank you for explaining this to me.

1. Where did the extra 4,000 calories worth of energy come from to power my hiking excursion when I only consumed 2,000 calories?

Dear Jimmy and Adam,

I really appreciate how Keto Talk helps listeners put the science of ketogenic living into practice. The fact that you two live what you teach is awesome. I listened to some of your shows when I was doing my N=1 experiment of a 30-mile hiking adventure powered mostly by ketones. Almost no carbs were consumed doing this—just water, MCT oil, and some exogenous ketones along with a low-carb meal in the evening. At the end of the experiment, I felt great. Although I love to run I walked for this experiment at a steady heart-rate of 100 to 115 BPM. My question for you is this: While I burned around 6,000 calories according to my FitBit data, I consumed only about 2,000 calories mostly from leafy greens, olive oil, macadamia nuts, eggs, coconut oil, and MCT oil to satiety. How did I burn 6,000 calories while only consuming 2,000 calories in my diet?

Thanks! I’m Keto4Life!

2. What happened to that mental clarity and improved mood that I experienced from my ketogenic diet early on? How do iI get them back?

Hey guys,

I’m a 34-year old male and have been keto for a little more than a year and have lost 40 pounds while improving health issues with my thyroid, blood pressure, and cholesterol. I check my ketone levels often and my energy is better than it has been in a decade. My question for you is regarding the mental clarity and uplifted mood that I initially enjoyed when I started keto. After the initial boost in my brain health, I feel like I’m back at baseline again with mental fog and a flat mood. I take a daily multivitamin as well as a combination of magnesium, potassium, and calcium supplements. Other than the occasional MCT oil or exogenous ketones for my workouts, I don't take any other medications or supplements. Do you have any thoughts on why my brain health benefits from being in ketosis have seemingly disappeared?

3. If I’m healthy and want to splurge with carbs on a cruise, will my body quickly become fat-adapted again? Or will I need to start all over again?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you so much for keeping this podcast going! I have a question I haven’t heard an answer to yet and I’d love to have you and Doc Nally chime in about it. I’m a very active 21-year old, lifting weights 3-4 times a week, and doing some form of cardio 2-3 times a week. I’m new to keto and I have noticed slightly less energy during some workouts while my body is still adapting to using fat as fuel instead of carbs. I am confident after listening to your podcast that the shift from sugar burner to fat burner will happen smoothly in due course.

So, here’s my tricky question: I have a cruise coming up in a few months when I’ll most certainly be fat-adapted by then. On the cruise I know there will be a wealth of fresh fruits, fancy drinks, as well as other carb-heavy treats. I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for a while and I don’t see why I shouldn’t enjoy a week of indulging in “carbage” as I don’t have any health worries at all. So here’s what I want to know—after this week of very high carbohydrate eating, will I have to start completely from scratch again or will my body quickly switch back to using fat for fuel when I commence eating keto? I don’t care too much about having to go through a week of feeling tired and not 100%, but will it take another 1-2 months like the first time? I really don’t want to go through all of that again.

Thank you for your feedback!

- Why hasn’t my insulin resistance improved as a Type 1 diabetic when I’m seemingly doing everything right?

Hi guys,

Great show and thank you for putting out amazing content on a weekly basis. I'm a Type 1 diabetic who suffered a heart attack about a year ago. I switched my diet to a plant-based vegan diet initially and then transitioned into a vegan ketogenic diet. My question for you guys is why has my insulin resistance seemingly increased on the ketogenic diet? My level of Lantus and Novo rapid insulin has nearly tripled. I used to eat 6 meals a day of high-protein, low-carb, and medium fat. I now eat 2-3 meals a day in the proper ketogenic ratios consisting of 120-150g protein, 30-50g carbs, and around 200g fat. My ketone levels have been between 1-2.5 mmol on my blood ketone meter. I seem to be doing everything right but can't get my insulin resistance in order. I'm pretty sure that inflammation was what caused my heart attack as my cholesterol levels were very low. So my main focus of going keto is to reduce this inflammation. Do you have any idea what is going on that I don’t seem to be getting better on keto?

Thank you for you help.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 58:

Female prisoners demand less 'carb heavy' foods and moan they're served too many pizzas, pasta, and chips

- How is it possible for someone eating a ketogenic diet to go into a state of ketoacidosis? Should I be concerned?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I have been a BIG supporter of LCHF and keto for years. I personally follow low-carb and have found it to be the only diet that prevents me from binge eating. It has given me a freedom with food I never knew I could have. I was at brunch with a friend who is a nurse yesterday and was talking about how frustrated I am with the way that diabetes is currently managed by doctors and nurses here in Australia. But many dietitians and medical practitioners are too scared of speaking up about ketogenic diets out of fear of having their license pulled. My nurse friend told me she had a patient who only ate bacon and eggs in very small amounts and had to be admitted to the ER with ketoacidosis with ketones at 7.0 mmol. According to my friend, a dietitian who was involved in her care said to her, "I hate this stupid keto diet, there have been so many cases of this happening in the past few years." I was a bit gobsmacked given that the chance of someone with a normally functioning pancreas developing this seems impossible because insulin would prevent this from happening. But then I Googled this and found a case study of where this had also occurred to a woman: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc052709#t=article

I am really perplexed by the whole issue of how ketoacidosis could possibly happen in someone eating a ketogenic diet. This just doesn't make any sense to me. I'd love it if you could discuss this on your show.

I love Keto Talk so much and I never miss an episode!

Kind regards,

Emily from Australia

1. Can something in the ketogenic diet or ketosis itself have an impact on your voice to make it more raspy?

Hey, what's up guys? I’m a 36-year old Ketonian from Alaska and have been on the ketogenic diet for the past four months losing a total of 50 pounds. I have a weird question for you that I haven’t seen covered anywhere—can ketosis have an impact on your voice? I’m noticing that my voice has been a bit more raspy since starting the diet where it feels like I’m about to lose it. This always forces me to clear my throat but it has little to no effect. Does this have something to do with my beloved buttered coffee or something else in my ketogenic diet?

Thanks for the show…you guys are killing it!

2. Is simply cutting carbs and eating more fat in my diet enough without having to go full-fledged keto?

Hey guys, I’m totally new to this whole keto concept and not ready to dive all the way in just yet. I love a lot of what you say on this podcast and I found reading Dr. David Perlmutter’s book Grain Brain was a real eye opener. My question is whether simply reducing carbs a little to more of a moderate carbohydrate diet can make enough difference in my health without having to be so severely limited as happens when you go ketogenic. I’m a bona fide carboholic but not overweight. I just want to be healthier and fitter. If I replace my carb heavy choices with lower carb, higher fat ones instead, can I expect to experience the health gains you talk about on Keto Talk? Maybe I’ll try keto someday if you think I need it.

Thanks for all you do,

3. What non-scale victories should I be looking for when weight loss stalls while eating keto? Is a weight set point real or not?

Hi guys!

Your podcast accompanies me to and from work during the week and I enjoy all of the great insights Doc Nally has from his clinical experience. In Episode 16, The Doc mentioned that the rate of weight loss is rapid initially (5-15 pounds a month the first 3 months), then slows to a comparative crawl (2-5 pounds a month) thereafter. He said there is a high probability of a weight loss stall and I’m currently in the midst of that for the past year.

I am active on several low-carb message boards and see many, many people get frustrated by this slowing of their weight loss after rapidly losing a lot of weight in the first several months. Dr. Nally also said that if you have a lot of weight to lose, it can take several years to do it. I would love to hear more about this and any recommendations on what non-scale victories I should be looking for to keep me motivated.

I’ve talked about this with my low-carb doctor who says I am at my set point goal weight now and have nothing to worry about. Can you guys address the idea of a set point in your weight and whether I am worrying too much about this? Thanks so much and keep on ketoing on!

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I just want to say how much I love your podcasts! You guys just fit together in an awesome way and seem to be having the best time while delivering fantastic information! I am 57 years old and did keto a couple of years ago for about two months and lost 35 pounds. I went to my doctor who wasn’t against keto but he told me this was a difficult diet to stay on. This planted a seed in my mind and I ultimately quit my ketogenic diet because of it. I gained back all of the weight I had lost and have had a horrible time getting going again. My husband wants to eat everything in sight and that doesn’t help me get back on track. He had three stents in November and would greatly benefit from eating keto as well. I feel defeated and just needed to reach out to someone who KNOWS the truth. I am going to start again, but already have the mindset that I will fail. I know that won’t help me, but it’s where I’m at. How can I help myself and convince my 60-year old husband that he needs to do this too? Maybe if I can convince him this will help our love life he’d be willing to give it a try. I have to hit him with something important to him.

Thanks so much for your help,

Cathy

Diabetes Takes Biggest Bite Out of U.S. Health Care Spending

The top 10 most costly health expenses in 2013, according to the analysis, were:

  • Diabetes -- $101.4 billion.
  • Ischemic heart disease -- $88.1 billion.
  • Low back and neck pain -- $87.6 billion.
  • High blood pressure -- $83.9 billion.
  • Injuries from falls -- $76.3 billion.
  • Depression -- $71.1 billion.
  • Dental care -- $66.4 billion.
  • Vision and hearing problems -- $59 billion.
  • Skin-related problems -- $55.7 billion.
  • Pregnancy and postpartum care -- $55.6 billion.

- What is the metabolic pathway for dietary fat and dietary carbohydrate once consumed?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

How are fat and carbohydrates metabolized differently in the body once ingested? I want to hear Dr. Nally get all geeky in his answer on this one. What are the exact paths they follow, what enzymes are activated, what hormones are elevated, and anything else that happens when you consume these? By the way, Jimmy, I met you in Melbourne last year and you are actually an awesome bloke in person.

1. How does a ketogenic diet heal your digestive system? Would the bacteria from fermented foods help with this?

Hey guys,

In a previous episode from last year, The Doc mentioned that eating keto can help your digestive track heal. I have two questions about this:

1. How exactly does a ketogenic diet help to heal your digestive system? Is it by lowering inflammation?
2. It occurred to me that our not-so-ancient ancestors must have not wasted food even if it was going bad. Would getting adequate bacteria from fermented foods help a person improve their gut health and digestion as well?

Thanks for your podcast,

2. Can a ketogenic diet be the answer to lowering the inflammation from ulcerative colitis and gout?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I just recently discovered the wonderful world of podcasts and you guys are at the top of my list of favorites. I feel like a kid who just learned how to see when they get their first pair of glasses and the world begins to be crystal clear. Thanks for all you do to help navigate the very confusing world of nutrition and healthy living. I have a question that I believe is directly related to inflammation. After going gluten-free about four years ago, I’m now striving to be ketogenic to control my ulcerative colitis. Since this is an inflammatory disease, it seems keto would help with this. Am I right? As for my husband, he has gout and all the dietary suggestions from the medical world seem to be aggravating this issue for him. Would ketosis help him with this too since we don’t want to take medications?

Help!

3. Should I be concerned with my blood sugar levels going too low while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc!

I have been following an LCHF lifestyle for a few years and switched over to keto in October 2016. I've lost 6.5 kg (14 pounds) since then and have a little more to go to reach my goal weight. I weigh in once a week and test my fasting blood glucose and ketones on the same day to keep an eye on how I'm doing. My ketones fluctuate between 0.9-2.9 mmol. My blood glucose averages 3.8 mmol (68 mg/dL), but I've seen it as low as 2.8 mmol (50 mg/dL). Shouldn’t I be above 4 mmol (72 mg/dL) to be healthy? I’m almost never above 4 mmol! Should I be concerned? I have no symptoms of hypoglycemia but I’m not sure what to think about this.

Any guidance you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I love listening to Keto Talk. Thanks in advance for your answer.

- Why am I so hungry at night while eating keto and what can I do to avoid this?

I have been listening to numerous podcasts to develop my knowledge base on the keto way of eating and yours is awesome. Thank you for providing us Ketonians with such a great resource! I am SUPER new to keto and have been borderline diabetic for several years. I have been eating this way for about a month with my daily caloric intake around 1300. I am striving to eat a fat/protein/carb intake of 80/15/5 and I track this voraciously online.

The past two weeks have been SO hard for me and I have given in to eating more than two or three portions of pork rinds twice. I have tried a variety of things to overcome this hunger by drinking more water, eating fat bombs, consuming celery and cheese, and going to bed earlier—all without success. I am pretty discouraged right now.

I am certain I have overlooked something important in succeeding with my weight loss journey and I am rather surprised by this because I felt fine the first two weeks with no hunger and lots of energy. What adjustments can I make to avoid evening hunger?

Thank you for all you do to provide great information through your podcasts! I’ll be listening!

Low carb-high fat diet difficult to sustain in the long term by Dr. Benjamin Lam

Our thoughts on a question asked by a reader in the Singapore newspaper called The Straits Times:

I am 17 and I have been on a ketogenic (low-carb high- fat) diet for a week. The results have been great so far. I've been losing weight steadily and this has been very encouraging.

However, I've heard that people gained 10kg more than their starting weight when they quit the diet. And even though they did not overeat, they were unable to shed the extra kilograms.

Do you think it is possible to stay on the keto diet and still eat carbs, though not as much as before, without gaining weight?

1. Can a ketogenic diet help someone with psoriatic arthritis?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show and especially the experience that Dr. Nally has using keto with so many patients that he has worked with. I have a niece who was recently diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and I was wondering if The Doc has any experience with patients who have this condition and whether or not the ketogenic diet would help.

2. Can a ketogenic approach help lower body fat percentage for someone who is normal weight?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

I've got a question about using a keto diet to help someone lower their body fat percentage when they're already in the normal weight range. You guys often talk about keto diets in the context of someone who is currently overweight, obese, or suffering from disease. But what about those of us who simply want to achieve a leaner physique? Is the fat loss slower and does it require lower intake of food, extra exercise, or something else?

I am very curious how a ketogenic diet could help me achieve my fat loss goals. I'm a 5’2” female weightlifter, 135 pounds, and a body fat percentage of 29%. I have been doing a strict ketogenic diet for the past month, so I’m anxious to hear your answer to my questions.

Cheers,

Savannah

3. Is there any benefit to adding back in workout supplements to my exercise while eating keto?

Jimmy and The Doc,

I love the show and listen to each episode at least twice. There’s so much good information in them all. I have been following keto diet for the past three months and seeing great results so far. Even though all the meatheads in the gym have preached eating carbs to me for years, I am able to gain muscle and get leaner at the same time while in ketosis—and I’ve never felt better.

For years, gym rats have loaded our bodies with supplements that we take pre-workout, during workout, and post-workout. When starting keto, I quit using all supplements because I was unsure how they would impact me. Now, I have coffee with coconut oil and butter along with an egg yolk as a pre-workout snack and feel amazing in the gym. It makes me question the hundreds of dollars I have spent on pre-workout powders.

My question is this: Would there be any benefit to adding back in some creatine pre-workout or any other supplement to enhance my workouts or is a ketogenic diet alone sufficient for seeing the results I desire? The Internet is full of so much contradictory information about this that I’m just confused about what to do. I am excited to hear your thoughts about this and I appreciate all the work you two are doing.

Thanks again,

Jason

- What could be causing a burning sensation in my body when my blood glucose goes higher during keto?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love your podcast because you guys do such a great job. Keep it up! I have been eating keto for about a year. During the first six months, I felt great, lost body fat, and built a lot of muscle. But I started getting a burning sensation that would begin in my legs and then spread throughout my body. I have been measuring when this feeling comes on and when my blood glucose is in the 80s to low 90s, the symptoms are much less severe. I consume spinach with lots of butter, ground beef, eggs, and salami to get those blood sugar readings.

However, when my blood glucose is in the 100-120 range, the burning sensation is much worse. What makes my blood sugar reach this level is a cup of eggplant and zucchini. I’m not sure what could be causing this and I live in an area where ketone testing equipment is not available. Could there be a relationship between the higher blood sugar readings and this burning sensation?

Thank you in advance for all the help,

Dennys

- Is it high-fat or moderate fat for weight loss on a ketogenic diet?

Hello my Ketonian mentors,

Thank you for what you do! This podcast has been invaluable as my husband and I started keto this new year. We're doing well, losing weight and inches, and feeling good! No keto flu or cravings and we’ve even formed a good group of Ketonians here on Okinawa for support and ideas.

Lipolysis and Why You Can Gain Weight Eating Too Much Fat

A friend just posted this article from Maria Emmerich and I'm really struggling between what Maria says and what you guys have said about how much fat to consume on a ketogenic diet. We don't do Bulletproof Coffee or fat bombs at all. Instead, we stick to real food but now we’re confused about what's right regarding fat consumption? We aim to lose weight and burn fat, but you say eat fat and Maria says to moderate it. So what’s the right answer? I appreciate your contribution to health and just wish I could get everyone I care about on board!

- Does taking TRT injections inhibit your ability to get into ketosis and lose weight?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I love your show and have been a listener from the first episode. I read Wheat Belly in December 2015 and stopped all grains and rice keeping carbs between 40-80g daily losing 35 pounds in four months and improving my reflux, IBS and other health issues. But then I noticed my energy became completely zapped to the point that I couldn’t get out of bed to workout anymore. I had my testosterone tested and it dropped below 200 in July 2016. My doctor said I have the testosterone of a 95-year old man. I began testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) with weekly injections and noticed my energy, drive, focus and capacity to exercise soared. But my weight also increased and now I can’t get into ketosis. I have consistently been in ketosis when I’ve measured in the morning and would stay in the state all day. I get that my body is recovering from a huge hormonal shock and I need to give it time to adapt. Is difficulty with weight loss and getting into ketosis normal for someone using TRT?

Thanks for your help,

1. Is there something about ketosis that causes lymph nodes to swell?

Hi Jimmy,

My niece started low-carb keto and very easily switched from sugar burner to fat burner. At first she had no side effects and reacted very positive on this new lifestyle change, but then she noticed that her lymph nodes started swelling, especially in her neck. When I checked Dr. Google, I found something about the release of dead yeast cells (Candida) or even part of the keto flu. What can I do to help her with this? I told her to speak with her doctor about this, but I’m sure he’ll just tell her to stop her ketogenic diet.

Thank you for spreading the word and I love your show!

2. What can I do to determine the ideal level of carbohydrates I should be eating on my ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,,

I love your podcast and thank you for sharing your knowledge!

Here’s my question for you guys: I’m having trouble keeping my carbs to a level that is not too high and not too low. When I cut my carbs to get into ketosis, I tend to eat virtually zero. But doing that makes me start feeling horrible with headaches, so I add back in some carbs and it goes away. I’m trying to eat no more than 10g carbs per meal as a goal. So how can I determine what my “Goldilocks zone” of carbohydrate intake is?

Keep it up and thanks for answering my question!

3. Can dehydration give you a false boost in your ketone production?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

Thanks for doing such a fun and informative podcast! I’ve listened to al of them, sometimes twice if I need a refresher later. I have been keto for the past few months both for weight loss and health. I’ve been happy with the results so far with about a pound a week weight loss, less fatigue, more energy, and more wakefulness to take on the day. My Ketonix breath ketone device shows I am in ketosis pretty much constantly and I’m using this device to see how various foods and carb amounts impact my fat burning.

But now I have a question for you regarding the effect of dehydration on ketone production? My 6-year old caught me blowing into my Ketonix the other day and she wanted to blow into it too. Despite eating a very carb heavy diet, she showed moderate levels of ketosis. So it got me thinking why this would happen. Is she dehydrated? And for those of us purposely trying to get into ketosis, could drinking less water than normal fuel more ketone production and show false readings?

Any input would be great! Thanks for reading my email!

Sincerely,

- How does lack of sufficient sleep impact your ketone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally:

I suffer from chronic insomnia – I wake earlier than I want, or wake several times a night. Sometimes I fall asleep right away and sometimes I don’t. When I get up for the day, I generally feel less tired than I was when I went to bed even when I get more than 6 or 6.5 hours of sleep. I think 7.5 hours is my sweet spot. How does the lack of sufficient sleep impact your ketone levels? My guess is insomnia decreases ketones due to increased amounts of cortisol which raises blood sugar and insulin levels. Plus the stress of feeling tired all the time may lead to questionable nutritional choices.

Thanks for your help with this. I really love and look forward to every new episode of Keto Talk. Keep up the good work!

Katie

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 54:
HOT TOPIC: LDL-P vs. Small LDL-P—which matters more?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

The age old debate of which is more important between LDL-P vs. LDL particle size rages on. There seems to be strong opinions from both sides of this issue and I’d love to have you guys discuss this on Keto Talk. It seems a lot of us Ketonians are hyper-responders to a ketogenic diet in our lipid panel and it’s concerning about whether those of us who have elevated LDL-P and LDL-C should consider moving away from LCHF.

Thank you and God bless you guys!

1. How do I explain to my doctor why my very high total cholesterol isn’t cause for concern?

I’m a 46-year old man and have been following low-carb keto for four years. My total cholesterol has risen to 383 while my triglycerides are below 100 and HDL is 77. My hsCRP is 0.2. My blood glucose ranges from 65 to 90 with ketones over 2.0, so I'm confident I'm doing well. My question is what do I say to my conventional doctor about my high total cholesterol when I go to see him for my regular physical. I usually just avoid seeing him and run the tests on my own so I don’t have to be lectured to. But I would rather use insurance to pay for these tests.

Thank you!

Leonard

 
 

2.  Can I take a low-dose statin to help lower my high LDL-P from eating a ketogenic diet?

Jimmy and Adam,

Thanks so much for all the great information you put out there! I'm a Type 1 diabetic, and my blood sugar numbers have been much easier to control since adopting a low-carb diet. I have both your Cholesterol and Keto Clarity books and have taken solace in them every time the doctors have tried pushing statins.

My latest test showed I had an LDL-P of 2300 and I’m now seriously considering taking a statin to deal with it. I really don't want to give up on my low-carb diet because the higher blood sugars are a more clear and present danger to me than my cholesterol. Should I play it safe and take a small dose statin to see what happens to my LDL-P? Would that be a good strategy for those of us who are concerned?

Thanks again for your help!

Jason

3. How is it possible that your triglycerides can go up when you eat keto?

Jimmy and Adam,

Is it possible to eat a strict ketogenic diet and triglycerides go up, not down? That’s exactly what happened to me. My triglycerides have gone through the roof beginning last Fall rising to 379 while my blood sugar levels dropped to 68 with strong blood ketones. My HDL cholesterol is 59 and all my other numbers are fantastic, but what’s going on with my triglycerides? I’m an oddball in the keto community because I’m a skinny guy at 5’8” tall and 130 pounds and so I never suspected my triglycerides would do this.

Perplexed, I decided to try an extended fast to see if that might help. In January, I completed an 84-hour fast, but my cholesterol test results were shocking:

Triglycerides: 379 - up from 279
Cholesterol: 343 - down from 359
LDL: 208 - down from 230
HDL: 59 - down from 73

So what the heck is up with my triglycerides? I know, I know, I know. You always talk about the cheating, Dr. Nally. But I swear on the graves of the saints that this was not happening. I am the NERD's NERD when it comes to tracking, data, and all that. I am meticulous and keep tons of data, including a food diary app I've had since before 2011, and countless spreadsheets. I have too much invested in my health to cheat.

One last thing to add is I've been going through a divorce for the past three years and it has been the most stressful time of my life. Is it possible this intense stress is having an impact on my lipids for them to become this deranged?I'm kinda at my wit's end, and would be forever grateful for any help you could provide.

Sincerely,

Sam

4. Why do keto-adapted athletes see rises in total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,,

I love this podcast and really appreciate all the work you guys put into it each week. People like Dr. Jeff Volek say that keto-adapted athletes will tend to have very high total cholesterol, high LDL’s and high HDL’s. I run 4-5 times a week and have seen this happen to me. My total cholesterol has gone from 202 to 303, LDL from 118 to 194, and HDL went from 72 to 92. Peter Defty from Vespa says these number changes are a sign of being in superior health.  What do you think about why this happens?

Thanks so much,

Gina

5. How can people outside the United States convert cholesterol numbers from American units?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I’ve been on a real food-based ketogenic diet since May last year and have lost 50 pounds so far with 50 more to go. I recently went to my doctor here in the UK to get my cholesterol numbers run and the numbers are all different from what you have in the states. When you share about numbers using the American units, it doesn’t mean anything to me. My doctor says my numbers are all good and to keep doing what I’m doing. What formula can I use to understand my numbers better. Here are my current results in English measurements (Adam, I added the American conversions parenthetically for our knowledge during the show):

Total cholesterol - 3.7 (143)
Triglycerides - 0.7 (62)
HDL - 0.9 (35)
LDL - 2.5 (96)
Blood Sugar - 4.4 (79)
A1c - 29 (???)

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

6. Can blood pressure lowering medications reduce your total cholesterol?

Hey guys,

I'm a 41-year old man currently taking Losartan for high blood pressure. I have been doing the ketogenic diet for a little over a month and have lost 27 pounds. My lab results show that my total cholesterol is very low at 111, HDL 44, LDL 57, and triglycerides 49. Additionally, my Carbon Dioxide level is high at 32 and my Alkaline Phosphate is low at 29. Are these levels along with my very low total cholesterol related to my blood pressure medication? I love your podcast and thank you for answering my question.

7. Can BCAA’s and sweeteners be the culprit in rising cholesterol levels?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc,

First of all, thank you for bombarding us Ketonians with knowledge, science, and humor.  I have learned a lot about not only the ketogenic diet, but food and diseases in general.  I’m 30 years old with no real markers of chronic disease.  I workout 3 to 4 times a week for about 2 hours and started the ketogenic diet six months ago. I feel great with tons of energy, very little appetite, clear mind, and fat loss. When I ran my blood work after a 24 hour fast, my doctor demanded that I stop my diet immediately because the cholesterol went up too much. Total cholesterol went from 182 to 433 with most of it happening in the LDL-C. HDL rose from 54 to 62 and triglycerides rose from 89 to 102.

Adam was kind enough to explain to me in an email that fat doesn’t spike cholesterol…insulin and stress does. SO it got me thinking about what I’m eating and the only thing I can think of that could be the culprit are the branch chain amino acids I use on a daily basis. They have ACE-K in them and so does the sugar-free sweetener in my Starbucks coffee. Is it possible this is what is spiking my cholesterol so high? My A1c was 5.2 and fasting glucose 103. I temporarily stopped eating eating to please my doctor because I don’t want to challenge his authority in my health. But I want to gather as much information as I can before my next visit to try to show the science.

Thank you guys, and keep up the great work.

8. Does eating keto eventually lead to the development of higher levels of Small LDL-P?

Hi Jimmy and Adam!

I listened to Dr. Sarah Hallberg’s presentation from the Low Carb Vail conference last year where she discussed changes in blood lipids in response to a ketogenic diet. She noted during her talk that a subset of ketogenic patients show a shift in LDL to the less favorable small, dense LDL particles over time eating keto. She hypothesized a mechanism that involved insulin possibly getting too low which leads to this negative effect on Small LDL-P. Have you seen this in your patients, Dr. Nally? If it does happen, what’s going on? And the real question is whether this matters at all in the context of a good A1c and low hsCRP levels.

Thanks for your great podcast! I love everything you guys are doing. I listen to lots of podcasts every week and I must say this one is my favorite. It makes my Thursdays feel like Friday because it always puts me in a good mood.

9. Is having high HDL cholesterol a cause for concern when you’re eating a ketogenic diet?

Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I am one of your oldest listeners and followers living low-carb for the past twenty years. I’ve been explicitly low-carb, high-fat for the past five years. I started taking your BerberinePlus supplement five days before my latest lab work and my blood glucose fell to 84. However, my HDL rose to 180 with triglycerides at 51. I’ve read that having high HDL can be a bad thing. My LDL is 108 and total cholesterol 277. I do consume more C-8 MCT oil in my diet now. Is that why my HDL went up? To make matters worse, my doctor has gone vegan and we’re butting heads on nutrition. Is this very high HDL cholesterol level a concern? Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always listen Keto Talk and really appreciate the time you invest in sharing your knowledge.

Love you guys,

Karen

10. Why would eating carbs like bread decrease LDL-P and LDL-C?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

I have a question about my LDL-P and LDL-C numbers eating keto since December 2015. They have both increased dramatically and my doctor is panicking pushing me to start taking a statin. I refused since my triglycerides were 56 and HDL was 60. I got depressed in August 2016 and stopped eating keto for a period of time eating lots of bread and other very high-carb foods during that time. When I tested my cholesterol again in December 2016, I was stunned to discover my LDL-P and LDL-C both went way down. Why did eating carbs make these numbers better than when I was eating ketogenic?

Thank you so much for providing great information!  I love Keto Talk!

11. Does knowing your Apo E genotype determine what kind of fats you can consume for ketosis?

I'm wondering if you have any information on how your Apo E genotype affects fat metabolism on a LCHF diet. I'm an Apo E 3/4 and I've always been told to avoid saturated fats and opt for mono and polyunsaturated choices instead as my genotype has a harder time metabolizing saturated fats. Interestingly, statin drugs would have no effect on me because my cholesterol levels relate more to the way I process ingested fats. I've heard you guys say on the podcast that saturated fats are better for ketone production. So does your Apo E genotype determine what kind of fats you should be eating on a ketogenic diet?

Thanks,

Julie

12. What can a Ketonian do to lower Lp(a) and is it something to be concerned about?

Hey guys,

I would like to ask a question about the results of my Lipoprotein(a). It came back at 158 with a reference range of less than 30. My total cholesterol is 197 and all the other cholesterol numbers are perfectly within the reference range. I realize cholesterol is not something to be worried about, but should I be concerned about my Lp(a)? Apparently, diet and lifestyle changes don't do much to help with this. My doctor told me about a pill called Heart Plus (which consists of vitamin C, lysine, and proline) and said it takes a long time to lower Lp(a). Is this something to be concerned about?

Any advice you can give would be appreciated greatly.

Best regards,

Gabrielle

13. Will a ketogenic diet raise low cholesterol levels to help restore proper hormone levels?

Jimmy and the Doc,

I started keto on January 2nd as a 30-year old female with two children, 4 and 6. I’ve been experiencing very low cholesterol levels since the birth of my second child and my doctors have been struggling to find the appropriate doses of hormones to maybe fix these numbers. My most recent results showed my total cholesterol is 110. Will the ketogenic diet help me raise my total cholesterol up to a healthier level so my body will start producing appropriate levels of hormones again? I’ve already noticed short-term memory loss from the low cholesterol and I’m desperately looking for an answer. Is keto going to be the answer for me?

Thanks fromThe KetogenicTooLowCholesterolMom,

Kayla

 14. Why do middle-aged women see a dramatic rise in their cholesterol and is it a cause for concern?

Dear Jimmy and the Doc,

I am a 50-year old female who has been living low-carb for several years and doing keto fairly strictly for the past six months. Going keto has allowed me to finally take off that last ten pounds and I feel so good on this lifestyle. Last year at this time my cholesterol numbers looked fine with HDL 170 and LDL 109. I just had a more extensive blood panel done and my numbers now look scarily high with an LDL-C of 179. A few of my friends who are the same age as me and not eating keto have seen a similar jump in their cholesterol and been prescribed statins (something I want to avoid). I read that this LDL jump seems to be common in women around menopause and is the biggest factor in driving the large increase in statin prescriptions in my age group. What’s going on in women like me seeing increasing cholesterol levels and is it cause for concern? I would like to keep eating keto, but I fear my family history of heart disease on my father’s side will have my doctor telling me to get on a statin immediately.

Thanks so much for your advice,

Abby

15. Are triglycerides a good or bad thing when you are consuming a ketogenic diet?

Can you explain the different types of fats in the body? I keep hearing about how bad triglycerides are on your cholesterol panel. And yet I also hear about triglycerides being oxidized in the liver for increasing ketone production? This seems like a contradiction! Do we want triglycerides in our body or not while pursuing nutritional ketosis?

Chris

16. Should I be concerned by my own test results if I have a family history of high cholesterol?

Hello Jimmy and the Doc!

Thank you guys for everything you do.  Your books, knowledge and podcasts are changing the lives of so many people in such a beneficial way.  I feel lucky to have discovered keto about four months ago and the journey so far has been nothing short of spectacular.

I'm a healthy, active male who enjoys rock-climbing in my home state of Colorado. I've noticed a tremendous improvement not only physically as it relates to my sport, but mentally as well. Since adapting I've been able to break down both physical and mental barriers that had stalled me for some time. It took me around 8 weeks to feel fully keto-adapted and get my blood ketone levels ranging consistently from .5-1.5.

Recently I made a visit to Dr. Jeffry Gerber’s office and everything checked out great except for my cholesterol. Here were my results: Total Cholesterol 315, HDL 91, LDL 210, and triglycerides 68.  My blood glucose was 79 and my A1c was 5.3. Thankfully Dr. Gerber didn’t freak out about my numbers and he concluded that my LDL particles are very likely the healthy fluffy kind with my triglyceride/HDL ratio being so good. Given my family history of high cholesterol, It's a bit concerning when I think that I may be one of the few that can't handle the ketogenic diet.

My question for you guys is this—what do you think the next steps should be for me given my recent lipid results?  Should I have my numbers checked again at some point in time? Or should I order the expensive NMR Lipoprofile or similar test? Or should I stop worrying and just assume all is well?  I'm not the type of person to assume anything, especially when the consequences could be so high. But I wanted to ask of your opinion before I drop $600 or more on a particle test.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.  Again, thanks for all you guys do!

Regards,

Derek

17. Can a ketogenic diet help reduce or completely eliminate calcified plaque?

Hello Jimmy and The Doc,

I love Keto Talk as well as Jimmy’s book Keto Clarity. The advice really helps those of us who are going against our doctors’ advice in an attempt to take control of our health. I have been keto for three years and wondered if it would help improve or possibly even reverse calcified plaque? I had a CT Heart Calcium Score done and saw it drop from 69 in 2014 to 64 in 2016. Will these improvements continue to get me back closer to a score of 0 or is the condition merely stabilized? Heart disease runs in my family and so I’m hoping going keto will buck this trend.

Thanks for your help!

Kevin

KEY QUOTE: “Can a person be keto adapted and not be in ketosis? Absolutely yes.” — Dr. Adam Nally

Did you catch the "real food" advertising in SuperBowl LI? What a fabulous sign that the trend line for real food is shifting!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 53:

- Jimmy and Adam share highlights from the Metabolic Therapeutics Conference in Tampa

- How long until my body adjusts to burning fat for fuel? Can a person be a fat burner but not be in ketosis?

I’m almost 59 years old but very active. I trail run, cycle, downhill ski and strength train (heavy weights low reps all barbell). And when I retire in a year or two I plan on learning how to swim. I’ve been reading a lot about other people’s experiences with the Maffetone method of aerobic exercise and getting faster and faster at the same low heart rate over time. About six years ago, I practiced this method and saw results, but then everything started to regress over time. Maffetone suggests low-carb for a couple of weeks to determine your carb tolerance. After reading and implementing the ideas from Keto Clarity the past couple of weeks, I’m using the Ketostix urine ketone testing strips to determine my protein tolerance and what’s kicking me out of ketosis. Once I get all of this figured out, how long until my body adjusts to burning fat for fuel? And can a person be a fat burner but not be in ketosis?

Thanks so much!

1. What is the effect of consuming MSG on my ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc!

I love the podcast and wish I could get it more then once a week! You guys provide such good information. I've been doing keto for 3 months and have lost 25 pounds. My question is about the monosodium glutamate (MSG) found in some low-carb foods like pork rinds, sunflower seeds, and processed meats. I do my best to avoid MSG but if I’m not careful and I eat something with MSG, my weight stalls and I noticeably feel my heart pounding. What effect does MSG have on a ketogenic diet?

2. Will a ketogenic clear up my heartburn? Would taking digestive enzymes help?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m a 31-year old female and I’ve been obese for most of my life. But over the last 2 1/2 years I've been able to lose about 70 pounds on a mostly low-carb Paleo diet. My weight has been stuck for the past 8 months and I'm thinking of trying keto to lose the last 30 pounds. I have pretty bad acid reflux and have been taking Prevacid every couple of days for a few years to keep the heartburn at bay.

I have two questions for you guys to address:

1) Do you think my heartburn is caused by my previous unhealthy diet which included grains, beer, and more and that it will clear up on it's own with keto? I'm worried that the Prevacid might be disrupting my ability to break down all the healthy fat i'm eating due to lowering my stomach acid.

2) Could my heartburn be a result of a disrupted microbiome? And if so, should I stop taking heartburn medicine altogether and hope it clears up? Would digestive enzymes be advisable? Any help or insight would be much appreciated.

I love listening to your show! Your podcast has inspired me to pursue a career in nutritional neuroscience (I’m currently finishing my Ph.D. in auditory neuroscience. I’m thinking about writing my dissertation on what causes heartburn).

Thank you for the help!

3. CDoes a ketogenic diet lead to impotence for middle-aged men?

Hi guys,

Love your podcast and it’s inspired me to look into the keto way of life. But I am concerned about impotence from eating a ketogenic diet. I have read a lot about this way of eating and unfortunately there seems to be a lot of comments from men in my age range (mid-40's) having impotence problems. Can you shed some light on this and tell me if it is a real problem for men when eating keto?

Thank you for your help,

– Is it normal to gain body fat percentage transiently when you first start eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I read Keto Clarity and have been recommending it to many of my patients! I am a naturopathic doctor and have been running a weight loss program in my clinic where I started teaching patients the principles of ketosis. We have 8 participants and in the first two weeks of the program the majority of them lost weight. However, there were 2-3 people whose body fat percentage actually increased slightly. I can’t seem to find much info on this online and was wondering if you could tell me what’s going on. We use the Tanita scale to measure body fat changes. Could this be a transient thing as people begin increasing their fat intake initially? I’m not really sure how to explain this to my patients. Overall, everyone we have put through the program is feeling great and moving in the right direction. YAY!

I really appreciate any insight you may have. Thanks!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 52:

- Does a ketogenic diet increase the prevalence of adult acne?
 
Hello Jimmy and the Doc,  
 
Thank you so much for your wonderful podcast. I’ve listened to every episode and learn something new every time.  My question for you is about my 58-year old husband who has a slight adult acne problem that flares up occasionally in the winter. We’ve been eating keto since June and his acne has gotten worse than it ever has. I’ve heard you mention that eating keto can help teenagers with their acne issues, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for my husband. He’s ready to give up on keto because of this issue. What is he doing wrong? Do you think this problem will calm down eventually if he continues with his well-formulated ketogenic diet or will it just keep getting worse?

 

Thank you for your help with this,
 
Nora

1. What’s the effect of refined lard vs. pastured lard as a fat source on a ketogenic diet?
 
Hi guys,
 
I was listening to Dr. Ted Naiman's talk from The Low-Carb Cruise on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show and his comment about using lard on a ketogenic diet caught my attention. He mentioned his concerns with coupling fats and carbs using refined, empty-calorie sources of both, in rat studies. The fats he listed were vegetable oil and lard.  
 
I am curious what you guys think about lard and its place in a ketogenic diet. Lard is a fat that seems to be as good as its source which is only as good what it ate. Dr. Naiman did note that he’s referring to the "refined" version of lard, but my question for you guys is this: Would using home-rendered, sustainably-fed, and naturally pastured lard still be associated with this empty and inferior fat source? Looking at the profile of lard, its mixture of monounsaturated and saturated fats, not to mention the vitamin D content, it seems to be a well-rounded source of healthy fat.  
 
What’s your take on this? Thanks!

2. Does a ketogenic diet lead to heartburn? Why is this happening and what can I do about it?
 
Hey Jimmy and Dr. Nally! 
 
I absolutely love your podcast!  My question for you is this: Why have I experienced major heartburn since I started following a ketogenic diet? The only time I have ever had it before was during pregnancy. It gets so bad now that when I lay down for bed it's very difficult to sleep! Any suggestions on how to correct this problem? 
 
Thanks for your help!

3. If you cycle carbs, then are you increasing your risk of kidney stones and other nutrition-related health issues?
 
Hi Jimmy and The Doc,
 
I am a 25 year old male amateur bodybuilder and powerlifter and I have been following a cyclical ketogenic diet. I carb up with high glycemic carbs on the weekend and eat ketogenic all during the week. I consume higher protein when I lift heavy five times a week. You guys sparked my interest in one of your podcasts where you discussed kidney stones and carbohydrate intake and I was curious about whether a cyclical ketogenic diet would increase my risk of kidney stones and other carb-related health issues.
 
Thanks for your help!

- Why do I become so incredibly tired after eating?
 
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,
 
First, let me say how much I love love love this podcast. I look forward to my drive home from work on Thursday evenings because I know there will be a new episode of Keto Talk to enjoy. I find your podcast to be so informative, entertaining and real. There's so much information out there around health, nutrition and fitness that it's hard to sort through the noise sometimes. Coming back to this podcast keeps me grounded each week. Thank you both so much for the time you put into helping others reap the benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle.
 
I’ve been on a ketogenic diet for five months and have seen incredible success in my health markers. But I have experienced one strange issue that I’d like your help with. I eat around 7:00pm, fall asleep on the couch around 9:00 and actually go to bed around 10:00.  Then I'm up at 4:15am and I start a fasted workout of intense strength training or cardio for 1 hour six times a week. Most days, I don't break my fast until noon but will sometimes have coffee with a little heavy cream and a little MCT oil. I feel great throughout, but as soon as I eat something like a salad, I get sooooooo tired!  
 
I could actually curl up under my desk and take a nap if I thought no one would notice! It generally lasts about an hour. What in the world could be causing this? It's definitely not a "sugar crash" or a "carb coma" because it happens so quickly and I don’t eat those things anyway. I pay attention to getting adequate electrolytes, so I don't think that's it either. I am probably not getting enough sleep, but I feel rested when I wake up. Could it simply be that my body really needs that much energy to digest my food that’s leading to my symptoms? I welcome any ideas you may have on what could be causing this and any tricks I could apply to prevent it.  
 
Thanks so much!
