Here’s what Jimmy and Will talked about in Episode 85:

RESPONSE FROM A LISTENER:

Hey, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I listened to your discussion in Episode 81 of Keto Talk about the difficulty in getting life insurance and I wanted to let you know that there are actually carriers that will issue up to $1 million policies up to the best rating class without having to go through any blood/urine profile or physical exam. If they are healthy and between the ages of 18-54 and have not been declined or rated from a life insurance carrier before, this option is available. It could be a good fit for someone that thinks their blood levels may be "abnormal" from the insurance company perspective and want to avoid doing labs. Just an FYI for people to talk to their insurance broker about this.

Thanks,

Justin

– Why am I having painful leg cramps while on keto outside of electrolyte imbalance? How do you resolve them without supplementation?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I love this podcast, been listening since Day 1. I’ve been eating low-carb for several years and about a year and a half ago I went full-on keto. I love this way of eating and have seen a lot of benefits from it. I regularly see average ketones of 1.7 mmol/L. However, there is one drawback I experience at least once a week and upwards of four times a week. It’s the dreaded leg cramps. They are more common at night, often when I’m sleeping, but I’ve experienced them pretty much anytime throughout the day. I believe the ketogenic lifestyle truly is the ideal way to eat, but I shouldn’t be having this major and often quite painful side effect, right? I’ve heard you discuss the issue of muscle cramps in the past and how they’re typically due to dehydration and/or electrolyte depletion or imbalance. The quandary I now have is how can I really consider this ketogenic diet to be “ideal” if it leaves me with this leg cramp issue that I seemingly have to solve with supplementation. Obviously, if this way of eating was being implemented by our ancestors and it was causing them this problem, they wouldn’t have been able to solve it with supplements. I don’t have any major health issues and am not metabolically broken. But this nagging problem with my ketogenic diet makes me wonder how it can truly be the perfect way to eat? Any ideas why my electrolytes may be out-of-whack and leading to leg cramps? Or could the cramps possibly be due to something else I’m not aware of? I appreciate your help. Keep up the good work!

– STUDY: Red meat halves risk of depression

1. Why am I experiencing a sudden dip in my energy levels while eating ketogenic when energy has been great?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been following the ketogenic diet for nearly a year at the age of 75 and have experienced great energy eating grass-fed meats, fresh farm eggs, and organic vegetables. But over the past month I’ve noticed my energy has taken a dive and I thought it might be the heat of the summer. But my blood pressure also dropped so low (70/42) that I had a tough time just standing up. My doctor had me wear a heart halter and discovered I have tachycardia. Of course, now I have to see a cardiologist and I’m sure he’s gonna flip out about my numbers eating keto: Total cholesterol 294, LDL-C 198, HDL-C 85, triglycerides 55, LDL-P 2100, small LDL-P 386, VLDL 11, fasting blood glucose 90, Vitamin D 97.0, C-Reactive Protein 1.1

Do you have any suggestions for me?

2. Is there concern about a low Vitamin C intake while eating a restricted ketogenic diet like the one outlined in The Plant Paradox?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

A friend of mine read the book The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry and is following his dietary advice. After reviewing their recommendations (essentially no legumes, no grains, low/no fruit, no vegetables that contain seeds on the inside like cucumbers, squash, etc) it seems that she would easily fall into the ketogenic diet recommendations. She recently met with her naturopath who was leery of keto because of a supposedly low vitamin C intake. Do you have any insight into this and how a ketogenic dieter would get Vitamin C? I usually follow a Paleo/keto diet but have never considered micronutrient deficiencies as a concern because I am eating so much plant matter. Thank you in advance!

3. How do I avoid the onslaught of sugar and crappy carbage while I am in the hospital? Will they honor my request to keep the sugar and carbs out of my diet?

Hey guys,

What is a patient who eats keto supposed to do when they are in the hospital? I need to have aortic heart valve and stem replacement surgery someday and I worry about what this hospital stay will do to me. I’m a severely insulin resistant Type 2 diabetic who had an A1c of 10.4 prior to going on a ketogenic diet. Three months after going keto, that number dropped to 5.6. I’m keto for life now, but this hospital stay will be a challenge to avoid the crappy carbage they like to serve as well as the sugar-filled goop they put in the feeding tubes. I already know my healing won’t happen properly with high blood sugar and insulin levels and the hospital will simply medicate and inject me with insulin to deal with it. If I asked my hospital to avoid doing this, will they follow my wishes? I suppose I could just fast the entire time I am in the hospital, but do you have any suggestions about this? Thanks so much for helping me with this.

– Does a ketogenic diet help or hurt with anxiety issues?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I just found and subscribed to Keto Talk—thank you for the great information! I’m thinking seriously about getting into the keto thing for myself, but I am doing my homework first. I am a 61-year-old carb addicted female who needs to lose at least 50 pounds. I was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic and I want to get myself back to feeling happy and well again. My question for you guys revolves around how keto helps with anxiety issues. Is there any medical, scientific, or other data with ketogenic diets and anxiety? Or does it make anxiety worse (ugh…I hope not)?

Thank you again!

Kim

– Does a high-fat diet lead to an increase in inflammation levels that I should be concerned about?

Hey guys!

I feel like I’ve had an increase in inflammation ever since I started on the keto diet in June 2017. I look more fat every day and I read that a high-fat diet increases endotoxins and increases gut permeability as well which leads to histamine production. But it’s the rise in one type of bacteria that produces an inflammation response that has me most concerned about a ketogenic diet. Should I be? Why or why not? Thanks in advance for your help with my question.

1. Why am I experiencing prolonged diarrhea since adopting a ketogenic diet? Is there a way to remedy this?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Is there a keto-friendly remedy for diarrhea? I don't know if it's stress-related or bacterial, but I’ve had it for about a month which forced me to become carbolitic again! I’m eating rice, bread, oatmeal and as you can probably guess I'm hungry most of the time now. I throw in some fatty protein, too, but practically nothing green. Roughage seems to irritate my sensitive intestinal tract. But this diarrhea lasted for five weeks while eating keto and I was hoping it would just work itself out. As far as I know I’m not sick with a stomach bug or anything, but my tummy feels uncomfortable as the non-carby food is being digested. I’ve been popping probiotics like candy every single day, so I don’t know what could be going on. Please help.

2. Why am I having constant hunger while eating a ketogenic diet with adequate calories and dietary fat?

Hey guys, love your podcast! I'm an ER doc and 90% of what I see in the ER is 100 percent preventable through nutrition and other lifestyle modifications. My whole ER department is on the fasting bandwagon and many are LCHF! I’ve been eating this way for five years and incorporate regular periods of intermittent fasting of 16-20 daily. I even ran in the Boston marathon with just water. So surely I’m fat-adapted. I recently switched over to keto for cancer and dementia prevention but now I have a problem—I’m CONSTANTLY hungry. I consume well over my usual 2500 calories which includes 200g healthy fats. I’m doing yoga and keep my net carbs under 20g daily. I’m 36 years old and have a normal BMI. But this hunger is excruciating and nothing seems to satisfy it. Will this eventually normalize? What’s odd is when I simply ate low-carb, high-fat that wasn’t ketogenic, I never felt this kind of hunger. Weird. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

3. How does an older person who requires more protein in their diet to prevent muscle loss eat a ketogenic diet that moderates protein?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a sedentary 70-year old man and I’ve read that older people need to be eating more protein (along with strength training) in order to counter any age-related muscle loss. But since going keto requires a more moderate protein intake, how can these be done?

Thanks for all your good work.

- Can you explain the process of how fat cells work and what exactly a ketogenic diet does to improve sick ones?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will Cole,

I love Keto Talk and am grateful for all that you do! I was wondering if you guys could explain how fat cells work. For example, when someone gains weight are they getting new fat cells or are the existing ones just getting bigger? Also, I've heard you talk about sick fat cells that get better when people adopt a ketogenic diet, but can you go into more detail about how exactly that works? And finally, if someone's fat cells are all healthy, will they then be at their optimal weight or will other factors still be at play?

Thanks again for all of your awesome work,

Michele

– Why did I experience soft tissue increase in my armpits once I adopted a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been listening to Keto Talk and eating keto for the past 6 months and have lost 22 pounds so far. My blood work looks great other than my DO adding progesterone and estrogen since I am starting menopause. A strange thing happened when I started keto, though, that I’d like your thoughts about. I have noticed a large soft tissue increase in one armpit and a small one in the other. A mammogram shows just added tissue and no cancer. So, will this go away as I continue to lose weight? I am at 36% body fat so I have a ways to go, but I want to wear a sleeveless shirt again and don’t want to have surgery for this. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.

God bless!

1. Did the high-fat intake on my ketogenic diet lead to the development of gallstones?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Love your show and I wanted to get your take on something that happened to me recently. I was admitted to the ER for severe pain in my abdomen and it was gallstones. They pushed hard for me to have surgery, but I chose not to since there was no infection. I’m 56, 6 feet tall, and 169 pounds while in pretty fit shape. I’ve been eating keto with periods of intermittent fasting along with Bulletproof Coffee for the past three years. Is it possible these gallstones are a result of the saturated fat and cholesterol I’m consuming? If so, then how can I return to my beloved Bulletproof Coffee, coconut oil on my veggies, grass-fed meats, and other high-quality fats?

I was really shocked that this happened as I felt I had at last found the diet that was right for me. Many thanks for any insights you might have about why this happened.

2. Should I be concerned about my “grossly lipemic” blood work that resulted from eating ketogenic with intermittent fasting?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating 70/25/5 keto for nearly a year with great success so far losing 30 pounds. I’m an African American, 6'1", 64 years old, and currently 195 pounds with approximately 20% body fat. I’ve also added in intermittent fasting of 16/8 on most days. I recently had blood work that showed I am "grossly lipemic.” As a result of this, there was no cholesterol recorded. EVERYTHING else was good. So, should I be concerned?

Thanks, and please keep up the great work. P.S. I have converted my wife to keto from Weight Watchers. Big win!

3. Since going keto, why am I have dizzy spells with normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels?

Hey guys,

I love your podcast and am working my way through your backlist. I’m 62 and have been eating ketogenic since May. I’ve lost over 40 pounds with about 10-20 more pounds to go. I’m eating low-carb, high-fat and have noticed my blood glucose has come down significantly since eating this way along with an average blood ketone level of 1.6. I was taking blood pressure medication prior to going keto and I’ve come off of it now that BP has normalized with the diet. I’ve noticed that sometimes I get dizzy while standing or doing light work. When I’ve tested my blood pressure and blood glucose after this has happened, they were normal at 120/83 and 82 respectively. I take a potassium and a magnesium pill every day along with L-Thyroxine for my thyroid and 3 Lyrica per day for nerve pain in my foot.

Do you have any idea what may be causing these dizzy spells? Other than this, I feel fine and am having no problem staying on my diet. Thank you very much for your help!

– Why does eating keto and fasting lead to offensive, bad breath and what can you do about it?

Dear Mr. Moore and Dr. Cole,

I've been reading The Complete Guide to Fasting that I got from my local library as I have been interested in this subject to manage my rheumatoid arthritis. My question is about keto breath that tends to happen when your body burns ketones. Could you please address this issue and what to do about it? I don't like the thought of having offensive, bad breath if I decide to fast as an adjunct to eating keto.

Thanks in advance for your help.

– Why would my blood glucose levels go extremely high after beginning on a well-formulated ketogenic diet? Is it possible keto actually caused this to happen?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I’m having a reaction to the keto diet that I think you may find interesting and can chime in with a few thoughts for me about it. Although I am experiencing quite a few benefits eating this way, it appears the ketogenic approach just isn’t working for my blood glucose levels. I've been eating keto for 5 weeks averaging around 26g total carbs each day, 70g protein, and 220g fat. This is tracked closely by a dietitian and my blood ketones which are measured by a finger prick are consistently above .5 mmol and usually averages around 1. However, my fasting blood glucose hovers around 200 and seems to be steadily increasing.

Here's the thing: I’m not diabetic. My fasting blood glucose before keto was 93 and my A1c was 5.5. Pre-keto, while I was eating just low carb with about 70-100g/day of carbohydrates, my insulin levels were low at 1.2. It's possible that going keto has exposed an underlying problem, but it seems to me that it's also possible that keto caused the problem I’m now having with my blood sugar levels and that the diet just doesn't work for me. I'm really trying to figure out which one of these it is.

Any assistance you can give about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for this podcast and keep up the great work!

David

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am having with my morning fasted blood sugar readings in the 120s and 130s and sometimes as high as in the 180s. Two weeks ago, I was put on 1500mg of Metformin and a ketogenic diet with regular periods of fasting for 18 hours a day. So far I’ve lost 14 pounds, but this blood sugar thing is frustrating for me.

1. Why am I experiencing an increased amount of gas since adopting a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating ketogenic for about three months and while I feel pretty good overall, I have encountered a few issues that seem to be sticking around. I have been experiencing dry skin, which is very unusual in the middle of a humid summer in upstate New York. I have also been having some digestive issues that show up as gas. I do eat very healthy with high quality fats, including grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs, unrefined coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, avocados, coconut milk, coconut butter, and some nuts and seeds. But I know I am experiencing more gas than I should and I'm not sure what may be causing this. I don't eat any grains, dairy, or legumes, but something is disturbing my digestion in the worst way. Also, I’ve noticed my acne has been consistently been pretty bad as well since going keto. I would greatly appreciate any insights you can give me into these issues. Thanks for your help!

2. What can I do about the unrelenting constipation I am feeling while on a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I’ve been eating low-carb, then keto going on five years now and I love it. But biggest side effect that I’ve experienced is unrelenting constipation. When I ate the SAD diet, I was regular everyday. But as soon as I go low-carb/keto, it's a big problem. I consume avocados, greens, and/or broccoli everyday. Additionally, I eat up to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and it doesn't seem to help at all. A famous ketogenic doctor told me to take milk of magnesia and I tried up to 3-4 teaspoons at night and still not regular. Yes, I definitely go more often when I take that, but I don’t want to have to take a whole bottle every single week. I drink plenty of water with up to 3 teaspoons of sea salt in it. I also supplement with magnesium malate since the citrate version creates a more laxative effect. So it doesn’t appear that I'm dehydrated or lacking electrolytes. The only thing I can think of that it could possibly be is stress. I'm not overly stressed but do have my moments. Please help me figure out how to get this constipation under control while eating keto.

Thank you,

Leonard

3. What is it about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet that improves skin health so much?

Dear Jimmy & Dr. Will,

First of all, welcome to Dr. Will who I think brings a fresh new perspective that I like to Keto Talk. On his first episode, Will mentioned as an aside that eating keto can be very good for the skin. This resonated with me because I have seen that happening in my own ketogenic journey. I used to experience super dry skin prior to eating keto using expensive moisturizers and even those didn’t help me. After 3-4 months of eating keto, I noticed my skin was super moist without any moisturizers…even when I am getting lots of sun at the beach. Amazing! So my question for you guys is this: Why is a ketogenic diet so beneficial for the skin?

Thank you for answering my question,

Miguel

- Why am I never feeling any hunger on keto? What’s the mechanism going on inside that body that it keeping me so satiated all the time.

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been listening to your podcasts for many years, Jimmy, but I have never heard the answer to the following question—Why do I never feel any hunger while eating keto? I will feel a little dizzy sometimes and even have difficulty thinking from time to time, but never any hunger. I am reading your book Keto Clarity to learn more of the nuances of nutritional ketosis and to help me understand what is going on in my body better. This lack of hunger thing is driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

Keep up the good work. You are making a difference in this world and for that, I thank you.

– How does someone eating a ketogenic diet with elevated LDL-C and total cholesterol get good life insurance? Is there a company that looks at the relevant numbers?

Hey guys,

I’ve enjoyed listening to you and your new co-host Dr. Cole on Keto Talk the past couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more from you two! I have a quick question for you guys to address that I think impacts a lot of us Ketonians: Is there a life insurance company that understands the new way to look at lipid panels and related lab markers that give more credence to things like HDL, triglycerides, hsCRP, lower small LDL-P, lower ApoB, and more? It seems most of these companies prevent an otherwise healthy person from obtaining proper levels of life insurance unless their LDL-C and total cholesterol are in line with conventional thinking which we know is an incomplete picture. Thanks for addressing this important topic!

1. Can the fat you eat on a ketogenic diet make hot flashes and swelling worse just like carbs do?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’m a regular listener to Keto Talk and love what you are doing here. My question for you guys is about whether the fat I’m eating on my ketogenic diet is making my hot flashes worse and my fingers swell. I’m 57 years old, weigh 130 pounds, and am addicted to sugar. But when I replace sugar with fat, all of these things seem to happen in my health. Is this normal? Maybe I need to cut my fat and red meat consumption and eat more vegetables. Do you guys think this is a good idea?

Thanks so much,

Rainny

2. Is eating more vegetables on my ketogenic diet the answer to my adrenal fatigue that seems to be halting my weight loss progress?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been on a ketogenic lifestyle since May and have not lost a single pound. I keep my carbs below 20g and went to see a ketogenic-friendly physician since I thought I was perhaps eating too much fat. In doing more research into what I might be dealing with, I suspected adrenal fatigue that has led to exhaustion and lab tests have confirmed this to be true. My keto doctor requires me to eat a lot more vegetables in my diet, but now I’m hungry again despite showing 1.0 mmol in my blood ketones. I’m a bit frustrated right now about what’s going on with me because I should be losing weight, right? Thanks for helping to point me in the right direction.

3. What natural pain remedies can be used by Ketonians who would rather not take medications?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been experiencing an increase in pain in my shoulders, elbows, and knees since I went keto two months ago. I’m a 62-year old male who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism four years ago by an allopathic doctor and prescribed Synthroid. I never liked the side effects of that medication, so I switched over to iodine supplements to go more natural in my treatment of this. Keto has given me great energy, no more food cravings, and has zapped out my hunger allowing me to intermittent fast for 16 hours daily. I lost 45 pounds on a traditional diet before going ketogenic and have lost another 30 pounds in the two months I’ve been keto. My goal is another 100 pounds, but I need something natural to give me pain relief while I’m on this journey.

Shalom,

George

– Is it normal to be sick of the dietary fat you consume on a ketogenic diet by day four of eating this way?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if it is normal to get sick of eating dietary fat after three days of eating keto. I absolutely love it for the first three days eating high-fat foods, but then something happens by day four when I can’t even think of eating another ketogenic meal. Is this normal and will I get over this? I really want to do this diet because of all of the health benefits and maybe lose a few pounds. But I need to know if I just need to push through the feeling I’m getting and get to the point where I will enjoy keto meals on a regular basis.

Thank you for your help,

– Why are blood glucose and weight elevated in a Type 2 diabetic despite eating ketogenic and taking high-dose Metformin?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I love your podcast - it's the perfect mix of nerdy science in an easy-to-understand format and I’m excited about the addition of Dr. Will Cole who maybe can help me understand something that’s happening to me right now. I started keto in October last year and I am a Type 2 diabetic who let my diabetes and weight become out of control due to uncontrolled stress the two previous years. With the exception of a few vacations where I've cheated, I've been strictly keto otherwise eating less than 20g of carbs a day. I feel great eating this way, but I’m very slowly losing weight and my blood glucose numbers just aren't normalizing—they’re averaging 200-225 in fasted readings even with taking 1500mg of extended release Metformin. I’m determined to get my diabetes under control without insulin and I’m under the care of a ketogenic-friendly physician who says it takes patience for the blood sugar levels to come down. I'm sure it does, but I'm hoping maybe you guys can explain why it takes so long for blood sugar and weight to come down as a Type 2 diabetic when it seems like I’m not getting any results yet.

Thank you for your help!

1. Would doing a protein sparing modified fast that is low-carb, but also very low in fat and calories bring more effective ketosis than a traditional keto diet?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently purchased Keto Clarity and read it with a vengeance. Thank you so much for your insights, experience and expertise included in that book, Jimmy. I now feel like I have a great grasp on nutritional ketosis and how it can benefit the body. I've recently been through a trying period with my health and I ended up losing 50 pounds very rapidly due to not eating and malnutrition followed by gaining back 90 pounds when I was "better" again. I recently visited an endocrinologist to help me lose about half my body weight and I was excited when I left the appointment because she told me that I would be on a ketogenic diet! A friend suggested your book, so I purchased it and read it right away. However, after meeting with the dietitian through her office, I found out that I was put on what’s called a protein sparing modified fast. The plan is very limiting allowing only about 600 calories a day. It is also very low in fat and only includes 11 ounces of protein daily.

So, after much thought and my sad attempt at researching this online, I thought I would contact you to ask this important question: Does limiting the amount of food you eat on a plan like this equal what a bariatric surgery patient would consume put the body into a more effective state of ketosis than following a more traditional ketogenic diet as described in your book?

I truly appreciate any thoughts you may have on this.

Sincerely,

Daniella

2. Is it possible that eating the higher amounts of protein required by the GAPS diet is causing me to plateau and even gain weight?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I recently began working with a nutritional therapy practitioner and have been practicing the GAPS diet for about a week now to begin healing my gut and digestive system as well as to detoxify. Before this diet, I was following a ketogenic approach along with intermittent fasting for 16:8 naturally and then practicing 42-hour fasts three times a week and losing weight fairly easily. Now my weight has gone up some and plateaued. My NTP has asked me to stop fasting since it might deprive my body of the nutrients it needs to heal.

At the first stage of the elimination portion of the GAPS diet, you eat animal meat boiled in bone broth with specifically approved vegetables like squash, broccoli, onion or cauliflower that are also boiled in bone broth. I am becoming convinced my plateau has to do with the higher amount of protein in this approach. I am only able to add animal fat to the stews and soups that are GAPS-approved and realize it's not the larger amount of fat I was eating on keto. So it seems I’m now eating a high-protein, moderate fat, low-carb diet. Do you have any insight whether or not it’s the protein that is stalling my weight loss and even gaining weight again?

Appreciate you guys,

Ashley

3. Is it possible the ketogenic diet could be masking the symptoms of perimenopause? Is that why I’m not losing weight? What can be done to remedy this?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Can eating a ketogentic diet mask the symptoms of perimenopause? I have been eating a ketogenic diet for over a year after starting my nutritional health journey with a primal/Paleo diet. The pounds on the scale simply are not moving. My doctor had said according to my health markers that there is nothing wrong with my metabolism. My thyroid and adrenals were good and my A1C is 5.0 showing my blood sugar to be well-controlled. According to my doctor, my sex hormone levels indicate I am still fertile at the age of 46. When I test blood ketones, I am .5 or higher and even seeing as high as 2.2 mmol. Prior to eating clean, my cycles were becoming irregular, but after 2 1/2 years of eating well my cycles are now back on track. I am having cyclical symptoms of fatigue, moodiness, and joint pain that is not in correlation with my cycle. It's seems to be happening every 3-4 months and I am no long losing inches while gaining scale weight. Could these symptoms be perimenopausal even with a regular cycle? I am frustrated I'm not losing weight, but am grateful my health seems to be right on track.

Thank you for all you do for the keto community. And thank you for answering my question.

- Can my 11-year old granddaughter eat keto as long as she gets enough protein in her diet? How can we help eliminate her carbohydrate cravings?

Hey guys,

My granddaughter is a healthy 11-year old who is a bone fide carb junkie. She simply cannot resist eating carbage of all kinds. Both of her parents have been keto since March and I wonder if my granddaughter could eat this way as well so long as she gets enough protein. I’m a registered nurse and it seems to be safe for her to do to help get her extra weight under control. My real concern is with her carbohydrate cravings and whether they will turn into an eating disorder. We’ve already caught her hiding candy and cookies so she can eat them later and then she doesn’t eat the real food she is served at meal times. Please help advise me because I want to help my granddaughter ward off future health problems now.

Thank you for your assistance.

– Could bioidentical hormone therapy prevent weight loss for people who are eating a ketogenic diet?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of Keto Talk and want to welcome Dr. Will Cole to the show. Since he’s got a lot of patient experience regarding hormonal issues, maybe Dr. Cole can help me understand why I’m not as successful at losing weight on my ketogenic diet as I had hoped to be. I am currently taking bioidentical hormones and wonder if that could be part of my struggle with weight loss. I did Atkins four years ago and it worked fine for me then. But it’s so much harder for me this time around. Can you guys help me understand whether these hormones I am taking are sabotaging my efforts?

 

Thanks for your response.

1. Can you diagnose a low thyroid function on a TSH number alone? How will keto help to fix the issues that concern my doctor?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of all your books and podcasts, Jimmy, and I've been a Keto Talk listener since the very beginning. I’m excited to hear what Dr. Cole has to add to an already amazing show. I went to see a new doctor last week for a physical and she has all her new patients do some bloodwork. When the results came in (see them below), her office called me to inform me that my total cholesterol and LDL-C are way too high (230 and 153 respectively). I asked why these numbers mattered when my HDL and triglycerides are 62 and 73 respectively thanks to eating a ketogenic diet and I was told my "bad" cholesterol was too high. I wasn’t worried about it because I’d read Cholesterol Clarity and knew what really mattered.

 

When I went to see my doctor in the office, she wrote me a prescription for Levothyroxine because she says my thyroid level is too low and that it's driving up my total cholesterol and liver enzymes. When I asked whether a higher insulin level could cause this, she insisted that I couldn’t possibly have high insulin with my normal HbA1c. She wouldn’t run the fasting insulin nor the particle size cholesterol test that I requested. And I also noticed she only tested TSH, which does seem high. But I don't know if that means my thyroid is low or not. So my question for you guys is this: Is it possible that the thyroid function is low simply based on a high TSH level? Does a ketogenic diet help with this or do I need to do other things to bring this into line so my cholesterol and liver enzymes can normalize?

 

Thanks and keep up the good work you guys are doing!

2. Can a ketogenic diet help improve psoriasis? And what other things should I be doing to help with this autoimmune condition?

3. What role does a ketogenic diet plan in helping to treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and candida?

 

Hi Jimmy and Will,

 

I'm interested in learning more more about the role of ketogenic diets to help treat SIBO and candida. I have both of these conditions and I am also breastfeeding! Most of the information I can find about this seems to target pregnancy with breastfeeding lumped into that group. I would really like to try keto but all I have read is mixed information about ketones feeding bacteria and yeast but then so do carbs. It’s so confusing! Any information you have on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks so much,

– Can taking a cortisol-lowering supplement during your period offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss? Or is the higher cortisol serving a purpose?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

My boyfriend and I listen to your podcast together and it has helped convince me that this is the lifestyle for us to follow. So thank you. After going through some significant health issues, including cervical cancer at the age of 28, I have struggled getting my hormones under control. I am perfectly healthy now except for the effects of dramatically surging hormones much more intensely than other women do.

 

I’ve learned from your show that women are less likely to be in ketosis during their period cycle because of an increase in cortisol levels which can then lead to a stall in weight loss. But my question for you guys is this: Would taking a cortisol-lowering supplement offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss during that time of the month for menstruating women? Or does that higher cortisol level serve a purpose in our body and health? I get so stressed with hunger and cravings when my period hits and I’m wondering what a ketogenic woman can do to deal with this each month during her cycle.

 

Thanks again for the great show and the awesome work that you do!

- Can a ketogenic diet help someone who has had their lap band taken out? What can be done to normalize the body’s hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I just came across your Keto Talk podcast and thought I would reach out to you for advice about the lap band I had removed due to erosion (hole in the stomach). I was very sad to let go of it. In my research on the effects of the lap band had on my body and eating so very little for so long, I suspect that it has taken a toll on my body and I’m now struggling to lose weight. When I consulted a medical weight loss clinic, they put me on a 1200 calorie, 120g carb diet and I gained weight in the two weeks I did it. That’s what led me to the ketogenic diet to help stave off the weight gain. Do you have any clinical experience or know about any research that looks at the use of keto for former lap banders looking for a way to keep their weight under control? I had my hormones tested and my testosterone came back at zero. I suspect having the lap band decreased my T levels from the stress it put my body through. So if the lap band changed my body’s hormone levels, what else has it changed? Is that why I’m struggling to lose weight like everyone else can? How do I figure out what I need to do since we are not all the same.

Thanks so much for your help!

1. Why would blood sugar levels go up when taking long lasting insulin while eating keto?

Hey guys,

I am currently in the process of reading Keto Clarity and have begun the switch over to burning fat instead of sugar. I am a Type 2 diabetic and inject insulin four times a day. Recently I went on a road trip and forgot to bring my insulin. When I got back home, I checked my blood sugar and saw the best reading I have had in over six months. But here’s where it gets weird—when I took my long lasting insulin, the next day my glucose numbers were higher again. Why in the world would my blood sugar go up when taking insulin while eating a ketogenic diet? Any insights you have on this would be awesome.

2. Could the joint pain in my knees be brought on simply by being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

I am a big fan of your podcast and have been keto for six months losing around 60 pounds. I'm now in the best shape of my life at the age of 30 and feel great with lots of energy and I actually love working out now. However, I’ve noticed I’m dealing with a lot more joint pain now than I did before eating ketogenic, especially in my knees. I thought things would improve now that I’ve taken off some extra weight. I am definitely in ketosis when I test for them and I’m trying to avoid what my mother just went through with a double knee replacement. I feel pain in the joints but don’t have any noticeable inflammation. Is being in ketosis causing this to happen?

Thank you so much for your help.

3. Does a ketogenic diet lead to abnormally high liver function test results? Is my liver overstressed by having to metabolize the extra dietary fat?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

A few years back, I had abnormally high liver function test results and my primary care physician was concerned that my numbers got worse because of keto. My AST and ALT were around 100 and they’re supposed to be no higher than 37. At the time she advised me to start eating more carbs and all my numbers that were bad came within the normal range. I started keto and fasting again in 2016 and lost 64 pounds after my third pregnancy. I’m concerned when I go back to see my doctor next month that my liver tests will be bad again. I’m hypothyroid, but I don’t have any known liver or gallbladder issues. Is it possible my liver was overstressed by having to metabolize the extra fat in my ketogenic diet? If so, then does that mean keto isn’t right for me? I sure hope not because I feel so fantastic in ketosis.

Thanks for any insight about this and thank you for all you both do!

– Should I strive to have higher levels of blood ketones if I seem to be thriving in my mental clarity and energy when I am barely in ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’ve been doing a ketogenic diet for three months as a physically active 27-year old man with 10% body fat. I’ve noticed that I feel so much better when I’m barely in ketosis at around 0.5 mmol—that’s my sweet spot where I have better mental clarity and energy. Anytime I’ve tried pushing blood ketones up by moderating protein more, my ketones rise to 2.0-5.0 mmol, but I don’t feel quite the same mental benefits as I do in the lower level of ketosis. So my question for you guys is this—should I strive for higher ketones and hope these kick in at some point to give me the benefits I desire or should I listen to my body and return to the lower level where I seem to thrive?

By the way, you’ll find it interesting that I seem to tolerate more carbohydrates in my diet than more protein. I’ve been able to eat as much as 50g carbs (10% of my caloric intake) without every impacting my ketosis levels while eating just 2% more protein in my diet will kick me out of ketosis completely. Fascinating! I don’t take any supplements and don’t use any sweeteners at all. I’ve yet to find anyone else dealing with this issue, so I’d love to hear an explanation of what might be going on.

Thanks in advance!

Jørgen

– Thoughts on Jimmy wearing a Freestyle Libre flash glucose monitor for the past week with curious results (blood sugar going down when eating ketogenic meals, the impact stress has played on the readings, Mexican food experiment and the recovery from that)

 

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

 

Someone posted this article where they ask if sugar feeds cancer. The "expert" claims that it’s not sugar that’s responsible for the growth of cancer cells but rather insulin. They conclude from this that we should not be avoiding carbs. Maybe it’s just me but isn't this "expert" just shooting themselves in the foot by drawing this conclusion? If insulin is supposed to be the culprit in causing cancer and carbohydrates are the primary instigator in these raised insulin levels, then wouldn't lowering carb intake then be a wise strategy decrease insulin? Ummm, hello? The conclusions of this "expert" are really poorly thought out and even contradictory. This type of thinking completely boggles my mind.

– Why do some Ketonians seem to experience a lump in their throats when they start eating keto?

 

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

 

I've been keto for about 6 weeks after eating Paleo for eight years. My wife and I are measuring our blood glucose and blood ketones every morning and keeping track of it. I will occasionally experience a lump in my throat since starting keto and my Google searches about this show a lot of theories about what it is, including acid reflux. We eat a very clean low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet with no processed foods and plenty of fresh leafy greens, grass-fed meats, butter, coconut oil, avocado, cheese, and more. Do you know what might be causing this because it seems to be a common problem reported by low-carb/ketogenic dieters.

 

Love your show!

1. Why would someone eating ketogenic experience very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux? What can be done to resolve this issue?

 

Jimmy and Adam,

 

I love your podcast and have been on keto for six months. I am now inspired to help others start their own keto journey. Unfortunately, one of the people I’ve tried to help is a close friend who started keto about a month after I did and she has been experiencing some very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux. Her doctor ran all the GI test and it all came back clear. The only solutions mainstream medicine has to offer is pills, pills, and more pills. She did suffer from bulimia for seven years and this is likely where her problem started. Do you have any suggestions on what she should do to resolve this? I’m guessing it’s a gut bacteria/enzyme issue and she’s been taking apple cider vinegar and cold water to no available so far.

 

Thanks for al the info you are puting out!

2. For someone who is skinny fat, how do get body fat percentage into a healthy range without getting too skinny?

 

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally,

 

I found your podcast three weeks ago and am finding it very informative in my ketogenic journey. I’m 61 years old and could be considered skinny fat. I’ve been ketogenic for 18 months and got down to 115 pounds, but still with a body fat of 30%. I ordered a Ketonix to test breath ketones, but urine ketone testing strips show I’m in ketosis. So my question for you guys is this: Should I be concerned if I continue to lose scale weight but the body fat percentage is not getting into a healthy range?My rheumatologist is concerned that I’m losing too much weight and wonders if I'm eating enough. How do I convince my doctors that I'm doing okay? Also what body fat percentage should I be shooting for? Thanks so much! My husband and I have learned so much from you and he’s down 25 pounds while getting off his blood pressure medications. We will never go back to the SAD diet ever again.

 

Thanks for your help,

3. Can a ketogenic diet help to heal some very painful hemorrhoids?

 

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

 

I'm a big fan of your podcast and it’s been a fabulous resource for my keto journey this past year as it has healed my eczema and IBS completely. My question for you is about my husband who is experiencing some very painful hemorrhoids. He eats what he thinks are “healthy choices,” works out six days a week, doesn’t smoke, and drinks on occasion. He also had gallbladder surgery a couple of years ago. I've been trying to get him on board with keto in the hopes it could give him some relief from the hemorrhoid pain. Can a ketogenic diet help him with this? Your input is greatly appreciated!

– Is a lowering of the basal metabolic rate (BMR) from eating a ketogenic diet actually beneficial to longevity? Are “normal” BMR levels too high based on SAD dieters?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

 

I love the inspiration and support I receive from Keto Talk. Prior to going keto, a dietitian had me on a weight loss diet that included low-fat and calorie-counting. Predictably, I was constantly hungry despite losing weight eating that way. But I couldn’t maintain it and the regain was rapid. The dietitian told me that my metabolism had slowed down meaning I needed to eat less and less calories to start losing weight again. Dr. Nally has said many times that eating too few calories will lower your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and the benefits that come from the restriction of carbohydrates in the context of a well-formulated ketogenic diet. This is probably a much more complex system than we even know, but I wonder if what we regard as a “normal” BMR is different for Ketonians vs. SAD dieters since the BMR test ranges is based on mostly people eating non-keto. This might sound controversial, but what if the ketogenic diet lowers BMR and that helps improve longevity? Could it be that lowering BMR below what is considered “normal” is actually the real normal range for healthy living? I hope this question provokes a potential knowledge spill.

 

Kind regards,

 

Frank in Brisbane, Australia

- 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.

– 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!

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.

- How do I need to adjust the macronutrients on my ketogenic diet in the late stages of my pregnancy and while breastfeeding? Should I add more protein?

Hi guys,

Love the show! You are doing an amazing service, so keep up the good work. 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!

- 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!

Chris

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!

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

KEY QUOTE: “If your low-carb ketogenic diet is working, why would you cheat and put your body through that?”  – Jimmy Moore

STUDY: Submitted by Dr. Dallas Peak, MD who was taken in by the use of the phrase “benign dietary ketosis” (BDK) to describe nutritional ketosis

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,

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,

Hot Headed Keto Mama Mandy

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

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

- Criticism of The Keto Cure five months before it’s released
 
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?

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,

- 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,

Linda

- 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

- Second Opinion From Doctor Nets Different Diagnosis 88% Of Time, Study Finds

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.

Best wishes,

Mike

- 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.

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

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,
