HOT TOPICS:

Carb cycling
improving health vs. losing weight
which is more important—macronutrients or micronutrients?

– 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

AND

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. I hope you have some answers for me.

Thank you,

From a very stressed out Tony

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.

HOT TOPICS:

Fasting
counting net carbs vs. total carbs
conventional foods vs. grass-fed/organic foods
– Action on Sugar accuses food companies of avoiding clear food labelling

– 'I have a way to beat this thing.'

– Meat snacks clock faster growth than potato chips: Mintel

– Wendy’s Japan replaces bun with meat in new sandwich, touts its low-carb nutritional merits

 

– 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,

Michele

– 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?

 

Hey Jimmy and Will,

 

In your experience, what impact does the ketogenic diet have on an autoimmune disease such as psoriasis? Are there other things I need to be doing in addition to dietary changes to help improve this?

 

Thank you for your help!

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,

 

Ani

– 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!

 

Kristi

- 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
