If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions--send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you're not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam bring their A-game answering all of your questions in Episode 26!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 26:

- Should I limit saturated fats on my keto diet if a genetic test shows it is necessary?

I’ve followed a ketogenic lifestyle for 4 years now. My WellnessFX Cardio IQ blood test shows I have excessively high cholesterol (LDL-P 2478, Small LDL-P 498, triglycerides 98, HDL 76, hsCRP .02, Lp(a) 207, homocysteine 13.8, fibrinogen 175). Using my 23andme raw data, I discovered I'm not a good metabolizer of saturated fat. In fact, it claims that a ketogenic diet would be dangerous to my health. Will eating more fish and seafood, avocado, nuts and seeds, olives and olive oil work to deal with this while I try limiting red meats, eggs, butter, and coconut oil. I am normal weight and otherwise in good health.

Thank you!

1. Does eating healthy fats on keto make you fat?

I heard a guy named Ian Ryan from the Fearless and Healthy podcast say that eating too much healthy fat will still make you fat.  He said this on another podcast called The James Swanwick Show.  Is it possible to go too crazy on fat and still get fat? I think I already know the answer, but I am still curious.

2. Can you eat a zero-carb, high-fat diet and still be ketogenic?

Hey Jimmy and Doc,

I recently stumbled across an article about some people who switched over to a zero carb, high-fat diet which eliminated plant foods entirely. Their diet consists of almost entirely beef products rounded out by salmon, eggs, bacon, cheese and butter. My question is this: If you followed a ketogenic diet from a macronutrient standpoint, is this a sustainable way of eating. How would you be able to derive enough vitamins and minerals from the meat products that you could omit all plant foods?

Thanks,

Mike

3. What are your best tips for post-menopausal women doing keto?

Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally, thank you for Keto Talk. It’s an excellent podcast with relevant and useful information. Could you please give your top tips for us ladies who are post-menopausal and doing keto. We are a tough crowd and could use all the help we can get. 

Happy Trails!

KETO TALK MAILBOX:
Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I am a wellness chiropractor in Southern California who has been challenged by weight and blood sugar. From listening to your Keto Talk podcast, it sounds like you and Dr. Nally believe that the ketogenic diet is a permanent way to eat.  He says that he has been eating this way for over ten years.  Having only done this way of eating for a couple months, I have no idea about the long range necessity of it for me. But it would seem that our ancestors who lived before refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup did pretty well on a diet that was much higher in carbs. To me it seems who many people like me who have a damaged metabolism are eating keto as a means to heal. But it would seem like eventually a person could go back to eating more carbs and not gain weight and not throw their blood sugar out of balance. What is your experience with people who go on the keto diet, lose weight, get off metformin, balance their blood sugar and then after awhile try eating more natural carbs like fruit and some whole grains?  Does this happen or do people just need to stay on this diet indefinitely?

Thanks for taking the time to consider these questions.  I am working my way through all your Keto Talk episodes.  They are very helpful.

Humbly,

Dr. Santokh Khalsa

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 25:

- What are the benefits of ketosis and supplements on heart health?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I’m loving the Keto Talk podcast! I’d love to hear about the benefits of nutritional ketosis on heart health? I know you already touched on this topic a little bit in Episode 8 but perhaps you can cover some of physiological effects of nutritional ketosis on the heart and related health markers. Plus, I'd be interested in hearing about the cardio-protective value of supplements such as Mg, CoQ10, and others, on top of a nutrient-dense diet for us Ketonians.

Cheers guys! You rock!

- High cholesterol 'does not cause heart disease' new research finds, so treating with statins a 'waste of time'

- Can I get the benefits of ketosis without actually measuring ketones?

Hi guys,

I've been doing low-carb, high-fat since July 2015. I don't measure my ketones so I'm not really sure I'm actually in ketosis. But I have adhered to the diet dialing in my macronutrients making sure I average around 30 gram of total carbohydrates daily. Will I still receive the benefits of keto even if I possible don't get into ketosis often or ever?

Love your show, I listen every week!

Debbie

- Can a ketogenic diet help with hot flashes?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

I’m enjoying your new podcast and was wondering if my hot flashes should go away with a keto diet. I’m sure I’m not alone in asking this question, so I look forward to your answer. Thanks guys!

Carol

- Is being in ketosis right for someone with gallstones?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I’ve been following a keto diet for a few months now and feel great. I’ve read Keto Clarity and listen to all of your Keto Talk podcasts. My question about my brother who is overweight and eats the SAD diet. A recent trip to the ER led to the discovery that he now has gallstones and the doctor is recommending removing his gallbladder all together. This raised my curiosity about how a ketogenic diet would affect his gallbladder. Is it possible that starting keto for him right now while he still has his gallbladder could help the gallstones or make them worse? I’ve also researched that fasting can increase gallstone production due to the decreased need for bile during the fasting period. Because many of us Ketonians intermittent fast as part of our lifestyle, I’m concerned this could be a problem for my brother as well.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review my questions!

Sincerely,

Rachel

Do you know if there is a relationship between very low-carb diets and Candida gut bacteria? I am suspecting I may have Candida and I have read online from people like Chris Kresser and Paul Jaminet that my very low-carb diet could be an issue. They make the claim that Candida feeds off the ketones. My diet is not necessarily ketogenic, but I’m sure I generate more ketones than the average person. So I’m not sure if the diet aspect would even affect me. My blood ketone levels are around 0.3 on average, which is below the level of nutritional ketosis (I can’t cut my protein as much as a ketogenic diet requires). This information is out there on the Internet and I’d love to have your take on this topic.

Thanks!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 24:

- Is there any such thing as too high ketone levels?

I have been strictly keto for almost 3 weeks (between 75-85% fat, around 5% carbs and between 10-15% proteins). I’m a bit concerned because my ketones levels have been between 4.5-6.3. And my glucose levels are 53 and 80.  My purpose in being ketogenic is to lose weight. As I understand it, if we go over 3, then you can’t lose weight. But, is this dangerous? How can I be between 1.5 and 3? Should I eat less fat? Should I eat more carbs? My eating schedule is eating in the morning (usually 1 can of sardines in olive oil and tea with 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of coconut oil). Then, around lunch or a bit later I eat fat again (usually 2 tbsp) and then eat at night. I do not count calories and eat until I’m satiated. Thank you for reading my mail and your response. It is great to have someone that I trust to ask my questions. It gives me courage.

1. Is a ketogenic diet safe for the elderly?

My mother is 75 and in pretty good health overall. High blood pressure medication and about 25 pounds heavier than she would like. Is keto safe for this generation?

Craig

2. What are the effects of drinking alcohol on ketosis?

I like to drink a couple of gin and club soda in a nightcap (i.e., not sugar filled drinks). Is this okay?

Thanks,
Jeff

3. Can a keto approach work even if you can't exercise?

I have recently developed a heel spur on my right foot and arthritis in my hips. Only being 50, this is very discouraging as I have been exercising regularly the past 4 years to help keep my weight and size down. I am not able to do this now. Will this eating plan help with arthritis and enable me to still lose weight even though I am more sedentary?

Thank you!
Monica

KETO TALK MAILBOX

I would like to get Doc Nally’s input on Dr. Chris Masterjohn’s talk at PaleoFX this year. Chris discussed the impact of long-term low-carb diets on the sex hormones and thyroid hormone via the role of insulin on these hormonal pathways. He outlined that insulin plays a significant role in the production of thyroid and sex hormones in signaling to the body that we are in a sufficient state of energy to be reproducing. This is why he believes there is great risk of low sex hormones on long-term low-carb nutrition. Any thoughts?

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam address a disturbing list of adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet claimed by a prominent member of the Paleo community in Episode 23!

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 23:

- Why did I lose weight fast in my face, but not in my stomach on a ketogenic diet?

I have been in ketosis for about 5 weeks. Basically my face fat is a lot less than my body fat.  So i still have a nice sized gut but my face is pretty skinny. A lot of paleo are experiencing this as well. I’ve heard some people have meaty faces and some have more boney (maybe genetics). Koreans seem to have a nice big fat face and like 0% body fat, how are they doing this?! People in my life, friends and family are saying I'm too skinny, but it's my face not the body.  wondering if Doc Muscles has any ideas…maybe mineral deficiency or protein too low? I'm 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carb, calories are anywhere from 1300-2000. How can I make my face fatter?

Thanks Jimmy!

- Responding to each of the so-called adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet listed by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne in this Facebook post, with detailed answers to the following claims:

Gastrointestinal disturbances (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, constipation, GERD)
Inflammation risk
Thinning hair/hair loss
Kidney stones
Muscle cramps or weakness
Hypoglycemia
Low platelet count
Impaired concentration/cognition
Impaired mood
Renal tubular acidosis
Nutrient deficiency
Disordered mineral metabolism
Poor growth in children
Skeletal fracture

Cardiomyopathy
Shift towards atherogenic lipid profiles (including hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia)
Heart arrhythmia
Myocardial infarction,
Menstrual irregularities and amenorrhea
Death

We get into the deep specifics about why Dr. Ballantyne's conclusions about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets she believes are based on strong scientific studies have major flaws in them and why most of the research she cites simply does not apply to the general population.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 22:

- Why did I feel drained, exhausted, and weak when I started eating ketogenic?

I got in ketosis and stayed there for a solid month testing with the Ketonix breath analyzer, blowing consistently yellow and red, with an occasional green. I felt drained, exhausted, and weak for a whole month.  I used the KETO//OS product and ate good fats and moderate protein.  I used sea salt often hoping that would help. What was I doing wrong?  In order to get through my busy days and start feeling good again, I upped the carbs knocking me out of ketosis.  I'm still low carb, but not ketogenic.  I have energy again.

1. Does being in ketosis repel mosquitos?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

So, I sort of recall hearing somewhere someone said that mosquitos like "sweet" people.  That is, people with lots of sugar in their blood.

Would that mean that they wouldn't like people in ketosis? 

Is there any research out there on the topic?

Thanks!

Jocelyn

2. Will consuming nuts negatively impact your keto-adaptation?

3. Does staying ketogenic make you more intolerant to starchy/sugary foods?

Hello...help please! I eat around 40 carbs total and from veggies each day, and have had improved health and stable weight and mood for two years doing so; my Paleo trainer (intelligent, thoughtful guy) advises me to eat tubers some each week so that I will be "metabolically flexible"- so my body is accustomed to burn both glucose and fat easily; he says I'm losing my ability to burn sugar easily by being consistently low carb.  He says just as my body had to learn to be fat adapted....now it is not "sugar adapted", and this is making me even more intolerable to starchy/sugary foods...equating to less overall health. Have you heard of this "flexibility factor"?  Can you and Doc Nally address this in a podcast soon.

Love your podcasts….thank you much!!

Cyndi

Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:

Hi Jimmy,

Does Dr. Nally have any experience with normal weight patients who are perimenopausal or menopausal age who adopted a ketogenic diet to alleviate the hormone rollercoaster and to head off the potential weight gain that often happens during that time of life?  I wonder how a diet that is great for fertility in women of childbearing age could also be good for older women in which increased fertility and higher estrogen levels increase their cancer risk.  Any thoughts would be most appreciated.  Keep up the great work!!! 

Best regards,
Annie
