“Things like Lyme Disease may not be the cause of all of a patient's problems, but it is a piece of the patient's puzzle. We have to be multipronged in our approach to treating disease.”

-Dr. Will Cole

Fresh off of last week's look into a day in the life of a functional medicine practitioner, we now get to see some real-world examples of this in practice. Dr. Cole brings us stories from his practice at work. Here are some of the topics Jimmy and Will discussed in the patient examples in episode 111:

– Autoimmune-Inflammation Spectrum

– The three main stages of the autoimmune-inflammation spectrum:

1. Silent Autoimmunity: There are positive antibody labs but no noticeable symptoms.

2. Autoimmune Reactivity: There are positive antibody labs and the patient is experiencing symptoms.

3. Autoimmune Disease: There’s enough body destruction to be diagnosed and loads of potential symptoms.

– Chronic Lyme and its related symptoms:

1.Fatigue
2.Flu-like symptoms including fever, hot flashes, and chills
3. Joint pain
4. Back pain
5. Headaches
6. A red “bulls-eye” rash around the site of the bite

– Microbiome issues

1. Leaky gut syndrome
2. SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
3. Candida overgrowth

9: Do the mono and diglycerides as well as the carrageenan found in heavy whipping cream impact ketone production or are dangerous to your health?

Your Questions:

1. Do the additives found in some brands of heavy cream inhibit ketosis, and are they potentially harmful?  

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I made the ketogenic lifestyle change over a year ago and my A1c has dropped down from 6.2 to 5.4. I listen to Keto Talk every week and you guys have trained me to look closely at ingredient labels. I eat a lot more heavy cream and my question for you today has to do with the mono and diglycerides as well as the carrageenan that are added to heavy whipping cream. Some people claim these are harmless and others say they are horrible. What I want to know is, do they mess with ketosis? Are they dangerous to your health in any way? I appreciate your feedback on this one.

3. Are there certain non-grass-fed/organic meats that should absolutely be avoided if you are pursuing healthy ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've just read Dr. Cate Shanahan's book Deep Nutrition and now I'm baffled as what to eat on a ketogenic diet (from a safe and healthy perspective). I simply can't afford grass-fed beef. I can only get it at a health food store and it's way too expensive for me. I normally shop at Costco and Sobey’s grocery store. I buy pork only from humanely-raised brands. That’s really the only feasible healthy meat choice for me to consume. I buy organic whenever I can. I like beef liver, beef heart, and chicken liver, but they don't ever come from grass fed or even organic sources. What would you advise to NOT eat at all amongst these non-grass-fed/organic choices for meat? What should I be eating on my keto plan that is very healthy that maybe I’m not thinking about? How do I stay on budget in my finances while pursuing optimal health through nutritional ketosis? I've heard some say you need to do the best you can, but I really want to know which foods to avoid if you can't get the good quality.

Thank you guys, I love what you do,

Monika

4. Could the detoxification that takes place from eating keto cause the lymph nodes to swell temporarily until things calm down in the body?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

My question for you guys is about the lymph nodes. Is it possible, since the lymphatic system is a filtering process, that swollen lymph nodes after going keto could be the result of the change in your diet? When you switch over to keto, your body does a natural detox, right? So is it feasible that swollen lymph nodes could be the result of this detoxification and given some time and a few adjustments, such as more water and possibly a lymphatic massage, they could go down on there own without any medical intervention? I understand that it probably depends on how swollen they are along with other factors. I was just curious if my hypothesis could be true?

Thanks for all you do and all the great information you both bring to the world that we may not otherwise get.

Sincerely,

Amanda

4. Why did I experience reactive hypoglycemia after eating a ketogenic meal?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a big fan of you guys and four days into eating keto. I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of this and wanted to run something by you. I ate the following food a couple of days ago: one medium avocado, two eggs over easy, two Italian sausages, 3 tablespoons of sour cream, and 3 tablespoons of Kerrygold grass-fed butter. After consuming this food, I almost immediately felt flush, dizzy, and off. I started researching Dr. Google and it looks like I had reactive hypoglycemia. Is this normal on a ketogenic diet or what did I do wrong? Interestingly, I had a fatty coffee and pastrami with cream cheese today and didn’t have any of those same symptoms from he other day. Could it be the extra fat in my meal today compared to the other day? Thanks for the advice on this one.

Matthew

5. Are there concerns that medicinal herbs and adaptogens can play a negative role in a patient’s health much in the same way as a pharmaceutical drug?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to you guys all the time and Will I hear you talk about various herbs and adaptogens that you’ve found useful in your clinical practice for your patients basically every week. You also talk about the side effects that come from prescription medications. As a fellow medical practitioner, I see both herbs and pharmaceutical drugs as basically extra chemicals substances that you are adding to a patient’s body in the hopes of eliciting a helpful or healing response. All these extra chemicals and compounds, whether food/plant based OR pharmaceutical based, potentially can interact with each other in very bad ways.

In the hospital where I work, I’ve seen examples of herbs causing liver and bleeding problems and interacting with other medications. The word “natural” does not particularly reassure me; cocaine, toxic mushrooms, poison ivy, and castor beans are all natural and they are also all noxious. A lot of the pharmaceuticals we use (penicillin, digitalis, the list goes on and on) are basically purified natural products. Pharmaceuticals, at least in theory, have to go through a rigorous testing process including ruling out the very powerful placebo effect.

My problem is that herbs and such don’t have to go through that same scrutiny before being made available to the general public. We really have no idea what the dosage of the active ingredient(s) might be from bottle to bottle, brand to brand, of all these herbs, do we? I’ve been low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic for the past five years, was a featured success story in Keto Clarity, have been on Jimmy’s podcast, and teach at an Osteopathic medical school now. I certainly have no objection to herbs, adaptogens, and other natural health supplementation and would never support banning them. But just how well tested are they?

Thanks again for a great show! You made this medical doctor think and that’s a good thing.

Dr. Jim Small

“I think insulin resistance is misunderstood .” – Jimmy Moore
– Just one high-fat meal sets the perfect stage for heart disease

– American adults just keep getting fatter

– Are You Carbohydrate Intolerant? Here’s How To Know + What To Do About It

– Is it true that your body cannot burn stored body fat if you are taking exogenous ketones since the body has to deal with these first before fat-burning can happen?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Craig and Maria Emmerich say in their book KETO that taking exogenous ketones should be avoided because the body can’t store them. On the oxidative priority list alcohol is number one followed by exogenous ketones, carbs, protein, and then fat. Since alcohol and exogenous ketones can’t be stored in the body, it immediately begins working to get rid of it as a matter of priority. They say that fat comes in last on the list because it is the body’s preferred fuel source. According to them, when these exogenous ketones are ingested, lipolysis (fat burning) stops. At least that’s how I understood the explanation. This is so frustrating for me to try to understand because exogenous ketones are pushed so strongly in the ketogenic community. I want my body burning stored fat, not exogenous ketones. I’m so very confused on this issue.

Thanks for your help,

Parrish

1. Can a ketogenic diet help heal the “killer cells” that make it more difficult to get pregnant?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

My question is about fertility. I have heard that a keto diet is very beneficial for woman who are trying to get pregnant. I have a friend who has been trying for a very long time and it seems that she has what some have described as “killer cells.” What does that mean and can a ketogenic diet help? Thanks again for your great podcasts.

2. Why do I feel funny in my head and nose side effects when my ketone levels go higher after consuming a Bulletproof coffee?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

When my ketones are elevated, I start to get unwanted side effects and feel kinda funky in the head to the point that I have to lie down and I even get a weird sensation in my nose. This morning after putting Brain Octane Fuel from Bulletproof in m coffee with cream, about 30 minutes later my blood glucose was 84 and blood ketones at 3.3. That’s when I get that issue. What is that? I take 45mg NP Thyroid every morning a couple of hours before my coffee or eating, but no other prescriptions.

Thanks again for all you do!

3. Is it possible to be so well keto-adapted that your body can go in and out and back into ketosis more quickly even after a high-carb meal?

Hey Jimmy & Adam,

Last night, my fiancé and I went out to eat at an Italian restaurant for a friend’s birthday dinner and I decided to cheat. I had a salad, squid ink pasta w/lobster, and for dessert…a big slice of cake. Needless to say, this was a very high-carb, low-moderate protein, and low-fat dinner. I’ve been doing keto on and off for almost 2 years now, and this morning my fasting blood sugar showed 83 and blood ketone was 2.3. I’ve never experienced anything like this before.

Is it possible that I’m just so well keto-adapted now that my body can go in and out and back into ketosis much more quickly? I must also mention that because this high-carb meal was premeditated, I prepped for it by drinking a green drink w/apple cider vinegar and some kimchi before we left for the restaurant. Do you think this helped? I’m also in fairly good shape, and workout quite often so that might have also played a factor. I’ve also heard that eating carbs separately from protein and fats helps with digestion and vice versa.

Do you guys think that the low protein and low-fat helped with my body’s process of allocating the sugar properly so I was able to get right back into ketosis again?

Thanks for all you do,

Chris

KETO TALK MAILBOX

– Do I need to moderate my protein or moderate my fat intake in order to see success at losing weight on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy & Dr. Nally,

Thank you for doing Keto Talk. I binge listened the last two months and now I’m all caught up. Thanks for the great show because I’ve learned so much. Atkins was my first foray into this community a couple of decades ago and the Grain Brain, Paleo, Dr. Jason Fung and many other followed. Learning more about keto has become my favorite pastime and I only just discovered all these amazing podcasts. There’s one question I haven’t heard anyone provide a good answer for yet and I’m hoping you guys are up for the challenge of answering it. It has to do with the concept of gluconeogenesis. I’ve heard you and Dr. Nally state that it can play a significant role in kicking you out of ketosis and raising blood sugar levels which is why you need to moderate protein intake. You also discuss eating a high-fat diet to satiety and that this within the context of a low-carb nutritional intake does not lead to weight gain. You’ve noted on several occasions that if fat is consumed in excess of what is needed, then the body excretes the extra fat out of the breath, urine, and feces.

However, there seems to be two very opposing views amongst the greater keto world and I’d like to know which side is right and why you think the other side is wrong. One the one side, you’ve got people who say that gluconeogenesis is not something to worry about and that eating a higher protein intake will not affect ketosis (or fat adaptation) and that dietary fat should be moderated for those needing to lose weight so your body can tap into those fat stores instead of using dietary fat for energy. On the other side, you have people like you guys who say the body is burning both stored body fat and the dietary fat that you eat simultaneously so you do not gain weight when you eat more fat. This side also thinks you should moderate down on the protein to prevent the insulin and blood sugar effects that can come from consuming this macronutrient in excess of what the body needs.

So who’s right? Is there some middle ground between these two positions? My main question is whether moderating protein or moderating fat is the best way to shed pounds which is my current goal. It seems that many people listening to this and other leto-focused podcasts are interested in weight loss, so we need to be crystal clear about what will work to make that happen. I understand everybody needs to find the version of keto that works for them but this is difficult for the common person to figure out. Can you help me and others determine how we can figure all this out so we can be successful on keto?

Thanks for all you do!

Manny

HOT TOPICS:
1. How does eating more dietary fat (as part of a low-carb, moderate protein approach) tap into helping your body burn stored body fat?
2. How does caffeine impact blood sugar and insulin levels? Does it raise insulin levels?
3. How can you possibly have higher levels of ketones (in nutritional ketosis) with elevated blood glucose levels? What’s going on?
4. What is the impact of consuming the erythritol in keto desserts on gut health?
5. What makes ketone levels fluctuate so dramatically throughout the day?

-- Will a ketogenic diet help speed up the recovery process for my upcoming jaw surgery?

Jimmy and Will,

I am a registered dietitian who is an advocate for the keto diet since starting it for myself nine months ago. I am working diligently on influencing others in my profession about the health benefits of nutritional ketosis. Keto Talk has helped me stay on top of what is happening in the world of keto so I can be armed with the knowledge to pass along to my RD colleagues.

Recently I had braces put into my mouth in preparation for jaw surgery coming in the Fall. This will include my mouth being banded together for a few weeks after surgery which would thus limit the types of foods I could eat or drink. Do you have any input about what my recovery will be like being in a state of ketosis vs. if I wasn’t ketogenic? I would assume inflammation would be lower on keto, but is there any research showing how much quicker healing will take place? My wife does not eat keto and has hinted several times that she wants me to just eat whatever post-surgery so I keep my energy up and have an enjoyable experience. I’m not wanting to lose any more weight in this, but the faster recovery would be a bonus.

Thanks for the help,

Casey

1. Is it possible to heal my Type 2 diabetes through a ketogenic diet and lifestyle change alone without going back on medications again?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am a 38-year old male with Type 2 diabetes. I am 6'3" and currently weigh 307 pounds. I started keto at the beginning of the year and have lost 25 pounds so far. I stopped taking all my diabetes medications on am only on blood pressure medication at the moment. My blood glucose numbers run between 155-200 no matter what time of day I check it. I have been implementing intermittent fasting with keto for the past month. So my question for you guys is this: Did I stop taking my medications for controlling Type 2 diabetes too soon? I was taking 1000mg metformin twice a day, 20mg glipizide twice a day, 10 units of lantis per day. I feel so amazing on keto and never want to go back to eating any other way. Do I need to go back on the medications for a short period of time until I heal a little more or will my body heal with a ketogenic diet and lifestyle changes over time?

Most shocking to me when when my doctor told me I’d be on medication for the rest of my life and that diet and lifestyle don’t make a difference with Type 2 diabetes. In fact, one of his nurses told me that I was not insulin resistant. How the heck can a Type 2 diabetic NOT be insulin resistant? The idea of going back on these prescriptions that force me to eat more carbohydrates to counteract their effects is frustrating to me. Can you help me figure this out?

Thank you for any advice you can give,

Matt

2. Does having an ApoE4 require me to reduce my saturated fat intake to prevent the atherogenic small dense LDL particles from developing?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have an ApoE4 that researchers say makes me more susceptible to having higher LDL cholesterol as well as an increased risk for developing heart disease. I eat LCHF and although my LDL-C is high (150) my Small LDL-P count is low at 129 and I’m solidly in Pattern A. My question for you guys is this: Should I be avoiding saturated fats like coconut oil and replacing them with monounsaturated fats like avocados? Will the saturated fats increase the number of small dense LDL particles even though my triglycerides are low?

Thanks for your help with this one!

3. Does the gluconeogenesis that happens from consuming too much protein apply also to the protein found in eggs and plant proteins?

Greetings you guys,

I bought Keto Clarity at Barnes and Noble last week and have read about a third of it so far. When you refer to gluconeogenesis, does that apply to just to meats or is it to eggs and even plant-based proteins as well? Or are the proteins found in eggs and plants different than those in animal-based sources? I’ve always wondered why I never did well on the Atkins diet and this excessive protein issues seems to be the answer I’ve been looking for.

Look forward to hearing your answer about my questions.

Brian

-- Does dietary fat that makes you feel good and happy while eating it spike dopamine in the same way that consuming sugar does? Is this good or bad?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

It’s very easy for me to wrap my head around and understand the spike in dopamine that takes place in your brain when you consume sugar. But a goofy thought ran through my head and it made me wonder if dietary fat could have the exact same effect in a fat-adapted person. I know that when I eat fat I always feel really good and happy. So does that mean I had a spike in dopamine? And if so, what are the ramifications for a ketogenic dieter if that is indeed happening?

Thanks for being there,

Jeff

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 co-hosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is co-hosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” and Pittsburgh, PA functional medicine practitioner Dr. Will Cole from DrWillCole.com who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday.

HERE’S WHAT JIMMY AND WILL TALKED ABOUT IN EPISODE 105:

 HOT TOPICS:

1. Are thyroid numbers supposed to dip below the lab ranges when you go keto? Is this normal?
2. Can the inflammation from a condition like fibromyalgia make it difficult to produce ketones?
3. What impact on your blood sugar and ketone levels does a steam room or infrared sauna have?
4. Does exercising allow me to consume more carbs while still maintaining a state of nutritional ketosis?
5. Why does the body have insulin at higher levels in a fasted state when there is no food around?

– Why am I still experiencing leg cramps from the keto flu when I am seemingly doing all the right things to prevent them?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I have been on a ketogenic diet for the last three years and regularly see blood ketones at 1.5-2.0 as well as blood sugar from 65-70. I use intermittent fasting five days a week sometimes for up to 24 hours at a time. I’ve been experiencing some excruciating leg cramps at night despite what I thought was a foolproof electrolyte balance strategy—400mg chelated magnesium prior to bedtime, bone broth with pink Himalayan sea salt throughout the day, and a half avocado for potassium on days I am eating. I drink half my body weight in ounces of water for proper hydration. Additional, I take essential amino before intense workouts and L-Carnitine 4000mg in the morning five days a week. So why am I still having these cramps on both fasting and feasting days? What am I missing?

Thanks for helping me figure this out,

Amanda

1. What is the ideal ratio of sodium to potassium for someone who is consuming a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I need your help determining what the correct sodium:potassium ratio should be on a zero-carb, ketogenic diet.

Here’s a little bit about me and my current routine:

Info: weightlifter, sprinter, 33 years, 5' 11" male, 70-120 g protein/day, fat to satiety, 1/2 lb raw liver/wk, 2 cloves raw garlic/day, 1.5 g fish oil/day, 600 mg transdermal magnesium/day, 400 mg iodine/day (kelp), 1 g vit C/day (acerola cherry powder), 10 g glycine/day and an occasional scoop of collagen powder.

SALT: If I supplement more than about 2 g of sodium a day (usually in 2 L water, Redmond Real Salt) I get nasal congestion and have NO IDEA why (vasodilation or constriction? blood pressure?). Yet in the keto community it is recommended to eat 4 g sodium/day or more. Are the amounts and ratio of sodium and potassium just very understudied and based on the shit standard diet? NOBODY seems to have a good grasp on this.

POTASSIUM: Ideal potassium falls in the 2 - 4 g/day range. The fact that sodium helps retain potassium complicates this further. Also, I can't supplement with NoSalt (potassium chloride) because it's said to be dangerous (I take 500mg anyways and haven't noticed anything bad such as heart palps.) But, if I were to take 2 - 4 g would it be dangerous? I can't get this from vegetables because I'm zero carb, and how on earth did our ancestors get it? It makes zero sense to me that you would need to eat inordinate amounts of spinach and chard just to reach this questionable potassium goal.

I feel like I really have this diet bolted down, but the lack of specificity with electrolytes in the community is majorly frustrating. Please drop a knowledge bomb on me.

Thanks for your help,

Alex

2. Why am I short of breath the day after interval training since I shifted over from carb-loading to a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been a carb-loading cyclist for many years and switched over to the low-carb/high-fat diet about 5 months ago. My problem is that I can go out for an hour of interval training on my bike and the very next day I am short of breath when going up a flight of stairs. I am 67 years old, 5' 10”, and weigh 163 pounds. I do not have any of the old cycling problems of blood sugar swings and can go for many hours before getting hungry in the morning. So why the shortness of breath? Thanks for your insights.

3. Does a resting heart rate in the 40’s/50’s after adopting a ketogenic diet mean something bad is happening to my health?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating keto for the past year and have seen incredible effects on my weight and health markers. However, I noticed my blood pressure and resting heart rate have come way down since adopting this way of eating. My BP has always been on the lower end, but my resting heart rate is regularly down in the 50’s and sometimes even the 40’s now. My cardiologist said it’s because of my weight loss and exercise routine, but this seems to have happened suddenly over the past three months. I’ve read various reports online stating how a low-carb, ketogenic diet will make your heart rate drop to dangerous levels and I’m now concerned. Should I be?

Best regards,

Jan

– If you consume a higher amount of fat in your diet but aren’t in a state of ketosis, then are you in any danger of developing chronic disease?

Hi guys,

If someone is eating low-carb, but not keto (between 50-100g net carbs/day), is it still safe for them to be eating the same volume of dietary fat as someone restricting their carbohydrates below the suggested 20-50g/day on a well-formulated ketogenic diet? In other words, is a high-fat diet that is not putting you in a state of nutritional ketosis causing more harm than good? Thanks for the clarification.

– What are your thoughts about our pediatrician’s recommendation for our daughter to eat “plenty of carbohydrates” to treat her concussion? Wouldn’t keto be better?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I've been binge listening to your show since October and have finally caught up. I love learning about all of the new things that Dr. Will talks about.

Last week, my daughter fell at school and bumped her head. Her pediatrician said that she had a mild concussion. She sent me home with the protocol below to follow. I thought it was interesting that they advised us to feed my daughter lots of carbohydrates. I would think that keto would help decrease the inflammation and improve her brain function from this traumatic injury. What are your thoughts on this protocol? BTW, my daughter is doing okay now.

Thank you for your wonderful show!

1. Is it possible to feed my healthy microbiome with only 10g vegetable carbs per day?

Hey guys,

I have questions about how to best maintain my healthy microbiome while on the keto diet. I have researched this topic extensively and keep doing the math. My hunger is minimized and blood sugar is better controlled by counting TOTAL carbohydrates aiming for around 20g daily, including my vegetable intake. I never get more than 10g vegetable carbs per day. Is this enough for me to feed my good gut flora? I take probiotics and have heard that without fiber the bad bacteria grow and will even start snacking on the stomach lining. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

2. Why did my Keratosis pilaris condition (with skin flare-ups and spreading across my body) become worse when I became keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

As a T1 diabetic for three decades, I’m constantly working on ways to control this disease. Keto has been a tremendous help over the past three months of being strict with it. I recently noticed a big flare up of my Keratosis pilaris (KP) and it’s spread to my thighs and calves when it has remained mostly on my arms since I was diagnosed. A clean diet is supposed to help improve KP, but this seems to have gotten worse than ever before. Is this because of my autoimmune disease or could it somehow be related to keto? I’ve tried dry brushing, oil pulling, and more, but nothing is helping. Can you help me figure this out? Thanks for your great podcast!

3. Will taking ascorbic acid as a supplement to my keto diet to help manage my Lyme disease actually block my ability to make ketones?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently embarked on keto and have reached a state of nutritional ketosis. I would like to add in megadoses of non-GMO ascorbic acid as a supplement to my keto diet since it helps me with the symptoms of chronic Lyme disease. However, in my research about this, I’ve learned that ascorbic acid is biochemically similar in nature to glucose and the body treats it as such. Will taking this interfere with my desire to produce ketones?

Kind regards,

Elisa

– Would the increase in blood ketones and decrease in blood sugar levels after switching to a mostly plant-based keto approach be from the microbiome changes?

Hi Jimmy,

I want to share this with you because I find really interesting what happen with my numbers after doing a ketogenic diet with lots of vegetables and only eggs as my fat and protein source. I was surprised to find that my blood ketones went up considerably around 2.0 mmol/L in the morning with blood sugar levels in the low 70’s eating this way. Previously on my ketogenic diet, I’d see closer to 0.5 blood ketones and blood glucose levels in the 90’s. Do you think this very positive change in my numbers is a direct result of embracing a mostly plant-based ketogenic approach that fed into changing my microbiome for the better?

I really admire the work you guys are doing and keep it up!

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I’m a long time listener and really enjoy the wisdom and experiences you guys share. You both do such a great job!

I started eating keto in January 2017. Unfortunately I wasn’t too strict last year with way too many “cheats” and I had a terrible time breaking my sugar addiction. Still I dropped 30 pounds in the first 2 months. I also do intermittent fasting and short extended fasts. I very gradually dropped another 10 pounds since then for a total of 40. I’m 58 years old and at 5’9” weigh 158 pounds. That’s probably where I was in high school and I feel great in so many ways!

At the beginning of this year I gave a renewed effort to be strict with my keto and IF and have had pretty good success. I purchased a blood ketone meter from BestKetoneTest.com and I test daily to stay in nutritional ketosis. A few days ago, we had a blood drive in our community and I donated as I normally do. Before donating I had regularly been in the 3.0 blood ketone range. The morning after donating I dropped to 1.1, but then the following morning I was back to 3.1. My eating stayed the same and there were no other changes. While I’m not concerned, I am very curious about this—does donating blood affect ones ketone levels?

Thanks again for all you guys do!

1. Why do I have a strong ammonia smell after exercising? Is it the acetone indicating deep ketosis?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I am a 49-year old man who has been low-carb/keto for 2 years and I’ve lost 50 pounds and have kept it off. I don’t measure ketones because I don’t suffer from metabolic syndrome or diabetes so I can’t justify the expense of a breath meter or the pain of a finger prick. However, based on energy level, constant satiety, and mental clarity I’m pretty sure I am in ketosis more often than not.

I recently started taking hour long walks at a brisk pace and transitioned to interval sprints with a goal of eventually running a 5K. At the end my last two sessions I smelled a strong ammonia scent. What does this mean? Online forums mentioned the following words and phrases: burning protein as fuel, amino acids, urea, nitrogen, uric acid, low glucose/glycogen levels in the muscles, and wait for it….kidneys!

Am I doing more harm than good by exercising? Could the scent be an indication that I am in deep ketosis? Am I smelling acetone as a byproduct instead of ammonia? One forum mentioned the cure to the ammonia smell is to eat more carbs! Not going to happen! What gives? Love your show and your other platforms?

Thanks,

Ken

2. Why does my keto husband get tingling hands while sleeping? Why do I have an itchy scalp while eating ketogenic?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I listen to you guys often. Thanks for everything you do. I have a couple of questions for you guys:

1. When my husband eats strict keto, his hands tingle and go numb especially when sleeping. The strange thing is if he eats lots of carbs this doesn't happen. He supplements with potassium and magnesium, but it isn't helping.

2. I have eaten a strict keto diet for 18 months with no cheating with junk food. I have a bad itch towards the front of my scalp. It’s not dandruff, just a bad itch. Is this related to my ketogenic diet?

Thank you for your help with my questions.

3. Why has my fasting insulin and hsCRP levels increased since adopting a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I just had some blood work done and my lipid panel looks worse, although I understand that this isn't uncommon when you’re losing weight following a ketogenic diet. Maria Emmerich stated in one of her books that all the excess fat from the fat cells gets released into the blood when you go keto. So, that part makes some sense to me. However, my fasting insulin has also increased (it was 10 in June 2016 and is now 13) and my C-Reactive Protein reading is also dramatically higher (1.6 in June, now 7.7). I'm mostly just shocked about the fasting insulin since I'm not eating hardly any carbs at all and no sugar. I'd be interested to hear any ideas you might have.

I eat chicken or beef (homemade) bone broth regularly, Sauerkarut (no sugar) regularly, avocados almost daily, red leaf lettuce salad with black olives, some onion (white or green) with Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing almost daily, free range eggs, grass fed meats whenever possible, Wellshire sugar-free bacon, grass-fed ghee, coconut oil, avocado oil, Chai tea sweetened with Stevia with whipping cream (grass-fed), Lakanto monkfruit chocolate, cheeses from grass-fed cows, some beets, Miracle Noodles from time to time, and ketogenic wine usually only once per week. That's pretty much the extent. No fruit, no starchy vegetables. I usually don't eat until about noon every day and try not to eat after 6:30 pm.

Thank you,

Shelley

-- Why does it take some people several weeks and even months to become keto-adapted when the body only holds a minimal amount of glucose?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I read 'Keto Clarity' (which I loved) and there something I don't understand that you mentioned in the book. You said that it can take several weeks and even months for some people to get into a state of nutritional ketosis. How is this possible? Isn’t the amount of glucose in the body insufficient for remaining a sugar burner for such a long period of time?

Thanks for your help with this nagging question.

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been strict keto since January seeing high levels of blood ketones and low levels of blood sugar. But I still don’t have the energy to resist chocolate or wine on Saturdays. I thought when I got into ketosis that I would feel a sudden rush of energy and positive well-being. That simply hasn’t happened for me. How is it possible for me to have higher ketone levels and not experience the mental and energy benefits that come with that? I love the foods I get to eat on keto, but I need to start seeing some of the known benefits to keep me doing it.

Thank you so much,

Mary

2. Does a ketogenic diet cure vertigo? Is there any scientific research that connects ketosis with treating vertigo?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am a HUGE fan of Keto talk and I have been eating keto for over four months. I'm a very healthy 38-year old woman who suffered from vertigo for about six months everyday that forced me to stop doing yoga since I couldn’t keep my balance. Within the first six weeks of eating keto, my vertigo completely vanished and I was shocked to say the least. On New Year’s Eve, I went on a bit of a sugar binge cheat and came out of ketosis and my vertigo returned with a vengeance much worse than it had ever been before a couple of days later. It thankfully only lasted about a week and hasn’t been back since. Seeing how powerful keto was in managing my vertigo, I definitely don’t want to ever get out of ketosis again. Is there any research studies connecting a ketogenic diet to curing vertigo? Or have you seen this in any of your patients in your functional medicine clinic, Dr. Cole? I don't know if it's coincidental or if keto actually stopped my vertigo. My doctors all say they have no idea what’s causing it to begin with and now I’m curious why keto is seemingly resolving it. Thank you and keep up the great work!

3. Is there any scientific evidence either pro or con for using a ketogenic diet while nursing a baby?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I wanted to ask you guys about the safety of nursing while in ketosis. I am a physician who was reamed in an online medical mom-focused weight loss forum because I shared that I was nursing my baby while in ketosis and people were saying that ketones are harmful to babies and can cause developmental delays. I knew this was completely whacked since we know ketosis is a natural state for babies and humans in general. I’m eating 60+g carbs daily, so I’m probably only mildly keto anyway. The studies they cited had to do with epileptic children eating ketogenic diets and having neurological delays. My baby eats the same keto foods I eat and I add in a few berries for a sweet treat. She’s completely healthy and has never been sick. I was just stunned to hear so many of my fellow medical colleagues react so harshly to what I see as being an extremely healthy way to eat. Are you aware of any scientific evidence that shows a ketogenic diet is safe for nursing babies?

Sincerely

Dr. Dorothy, DO

– Are higher blood sugar levels in a Type 1 diabetic eating a ketogenic diet just as harmful as consuming too many carbohydrates or protein?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Limansky,

I love Keto Talk and I have a question about high blood sugar while eating low-carb, high-fat. I am a Type 1 diabetic and I try very hard to keep my blood sugar at an optimal level between 80-100. But given that my blood sugars can drastically rise for any reason at all (including because of hormones, stress, anything) it is tricky. Here is my question for you: If I am eating very low-carb, moderate protein, and high-fat as we aim to do on a ketogenic diet but my blood sugar rises above 100 because of the challenges of being a Type 1 diabetic, does my body then react to the high-fat intake int he same way as if I had consumed too many carbs and/or protein? Will this high blood sugar level under this scenario have the same impact on the body? My goal is to be completely keto-adapted all the time, but that’s a challenge with Type 1 diabetes. I appreciate any input you might have for me.

1. Does the inflammation-lowering effect of a ketogenic diet help ward off the development of the cold or flu?

Hi Jimmy and John,

I love listening to Keto Talk every Thursday as it motivates me to stick with my ketogenic lifestyle. As a touring musician and singer, the biggest issue I’ve found among my traveling peers is catching a cold. Airplanes, tour buses, late nights, and jet lag all take their toll on our immune systems. Because we have to use our voices for our livelihood, it really sucks when we get that Throat Tickle of Doom. However, I’ve noticed when I REALLY stick with keto while I'm on the road, I've observed times where everyone else gets sick and I don't. If I do feel a cold starting to come on, it’s definitely far less inflammation in my throat in the morning despite long flights and rigorous schedules. Interestingly,, when I've had a night of carb-filled indulgence, I will often come down with a cold the very next day. Is there any evidence that eating a ketogenic diet helps strengthen the immune system against things like the cold, flu, laryngitis, and more? Am I crazy or am I on to something here?

Thanks for your help!

2. Does being in a constant state of nutritional ketosis increase your body temperature? Is this elevated temperature harmful or a sign of health?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Limansky,

Thank you for the Keto Talk podcast as I’ve found the discussions very helpful. I first went low-carb (via Atkins) in 2008 or so and I bought the pee strips to test for ketosis. While I lost the weight I wanted to lose—about 20 pounds—I allowed carb-creep to set in! Menopause also came along about that time and whammo blammo, I put on nearly 30 pound in the next year. I decided to start eating ketogenic in January and lost weight and inches off my waist with a concerted effort to stay in ketosis for longer periods. But I’ve noticed I am often VERY warm. At first I thought it was hot flashes again which had pretty much stopped for years, but my temperature goes up and stays up. All I found online is that it is possible that fat burning increases body temperature. Do you know if this is true for people who are in a constant state of ketosis? Is this a good or a bad thing?

Thanks again for your work.

3. Are there any known therapeutic effects for treating Gastroparesis with a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Keto Doctor,

Thanks for all you do—you are my go-to for all things ketogenic. I’m writing because my brother suffers with Gastroparesis that developed from his diabetes. Have you heard if a ketogenic diet can help with this condition? I’ve been looking online about this and there are too many conflicting things said about ketosis for this condition. Of course, his doc wants him on the same old low-fat, low-fiber diet that hasn’t helped him in his life ever. He’s currently hospitalized for this and we need some help. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

– Does an A1c level below 6.0 which is typical of someone eating a ketogenic diet indicate possible hypoglycemia?

Hi guys,

When I was first diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I signed up for the dLife newsletter to help me figure out what to do to improve my health. I then started listening to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show podcast because I was interested in reversing diabetes not just accepting it as an inevitable fat. But in the latest newsletter from dLife, I couldn’t believe they were stating that an A1c of less than 6 means you might be hypoglycemic! Here’s the link to what they sent out to dLife subscribers today: http://dlife.com/a1c-blood-sugar-average/?utm_source=Newsletter-20171201 Could you please address this and share how and why they got it wrong?

– Should I switch my keto diet over to a low-fat, whole foods, organic diet when I’m in the midst of my period?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Going keto has made me view the whole world of nutrition from a new angle. It has changed my life completely. I’m a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer and found the research on ketogenic diets so fascinating since it was not a major focus in my education. I used to have severe acne, long and arduous monthly cycles, excess weight that I couldn't shift, and regular bouts of depression. Even on a real foods-based Paleo diet, I couldn’t figure out why my health was less than optimal.

Now I’m happily eating keto, but I noticed during my period that I come out of ketosis rather easily and see a corresponding weight gain from it. I know this is pretty common as you've mentioned on a previous episode, but I worry that coming out of ketosis leads to a spike in insulin followed by fat storage of the dietary fat I am eating rather than using it for fuel. This makes me think perhaps it's best for me to veer back to my low-fat, whole foods, organic diet during my period. Does that make sense to do that? Or is there any other way I can get around it?

I want to be able to advocate and share this diet with my future clients and would appreciate your thoughts and wisdom.

All the very best,

Charlotte

1. Does a ketogenic diet lower leptin levels too much and slow your metabolism? Do only 1% of keto dieters stick with it over the long-term?

Greetings Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

My wife and I have been living the keto lifestyle for nearly two years with awesome success. I follow a trainer who has given me gobs of exercise advice that has been mostly great, but some of it a little strange. I received an email from him where he mentioned keto and specifically how it affects the female metabolism. My wife and I watched the video and we were very turned off, disgusted, angry, and confused, to say the least. Ultimately, the infomercial was a guy named Brad Pilon who pointed to leptin and how keto turns off this hormone and slows the metabolism. He also pointed to sustainability as being the biggest reason people cannot stick with keto claiming that less than 1% stick with it. Anyways, I don't know if you could address these issues on your show, but we are certainly not concerned about living keto. I know it is next to impossible to combat all of the "anti-keto" rhetoric that’s out there, but this one definitely needs a response. Thank you for taking the time to read my rant and for all you do for us Ketonians.

2. Why does eating vegetables kick me out of ketosis? Why am I still hungry eating keto now that breastfeeding my baby has slowed down?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thanks for such a great podcast. I’m a 33-year old full time working mom with a 3-year old and a 14-month old. I started my ketogenic journey about a year ago to shed my baby weight and now I’m pretty lean with a BMI of 19.5. I have two questions for you guys. I use a breath ketone monitor to make sure that I’m in ketosis and I’ve noticed that my carb tolerance is very low. Eating just 5-6 pieces of broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or any other keto-friendly vegetables completely knocks me out of ketosis for upwards of 24 hours. I only seem to tolerate spinach but I worry that I will not get enough micronutrients if I can’t eat more vegetables than that. I aim for 12-15 servings of fat per day and I always eat when I’m hungry.

This brings me to my second question—why am I always hungry on keto? At first I thought it was perfectly normal because I breastfed my baby severals times a day for 13 months. But now that I’ve cut down on the breastfeeding sessions to only two small feeds per day, I’m still very hungry all the time even when I know I’m in ketosis. Do I have to stop breastfeeding completely to start experiencing appetite suppression or could the fact that I’m lean make me hungrier because I don’t have a lot of available body fat for my body to use for fuel?

From what I know, I’m not pre-diabetic or anything. I am hypothyroid and take 75mcg of Synthroid daily. I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old and starving myself on a low-carb, low-fat diet so I would like to work with my doctor to see if I can come off the medication now that I eat healthy. Thanks again for a fantastic show and for answering my questions.

3. Why am I experiencing edema when my body is in a state of ketosis? Why does it disappear when I add in more carbs to get out of ketosis?

Hi guys,

I’m a 62-year old female, weight 145 pounds on my 5'8' body and started on the ketogenic diet in June 2017. It took me four months to reach therapeutic levels of blood ketones and become keto-adapted. I have cycled in and out of ketosis three times since that time for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then in January. I closely monitor my blood ketones and noticed something strange started in my body. I now experience significant edema in my face with bagging eyelids, swollen hands, and swollen ankles. I noticed when I get out of ketosis, the edema disappears. Why is ketosis seemingly causing this edema?

I went Paleo in 2011 after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and managed it pretty well with diet, supplements, taking thyroid hormone (compounded T3) as well as an estrogen patch and progesterone. I love the energy I’ve experienced on keto, but I don’t like this edema. I’ve been tinkering with thyroid medication and adding in more electrolytes and water, but nothing has seemed to help. The only thing that seems to work is cycling in more carbohydrates like sweet potato, squash, and starchy vegetables. Can you explain to me what’s going on here? I want all the benefits ketosis gives me, but the edema is too much to handle.

– How exactly does a ketogenic diet bring about healing in the body once you become fat-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been thinking a lot about a topic for you guys to talk about that could be a great discussion. We also talk about how the body starts the healing process after becoming fat-adapted from eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat because of the insulin and inflammation-lowering effects that come from being in a ketogenic state. But what does your body actually do when insulin and inflammation levels go down? How exactly is the body healing? I think this would be interesting to hear for all of us Ketonians striving to eat this way to heal the damage that’s been done. Thanks for your awesome podcast!

– Why am I waking up in the middle of the night and struggling to get back to sleep? What can I do?

 


Hi Keto Talk,

 


I understand sleep is an important component of ketosis and overall health, but it’s a big problem for me. For the past three years I wake up between 3:15-3:30AM and struggle to get back to sleep. A few months ago my doctor prescribed Silenor. It seemed to help in the beginning but it is helping much less now. I believe this medication might be interfering with my pursuit of ketosis and fat loss. I know I have high cortisol levels, but my doctor is unconcerned since I don’t display any of the typical symptoms. I’ve tried melatonin and valerian, but they both give me horrendous nightmares. Most sleep herbs are designed for falling asleep, but that’s not my issue. Do you have any suggestions for me?

 


Thanks,

 


Laura

1. How do I deal with this low progesterone to optimize and complement my ketogenic nutrition?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


I have learned so much from both of you on my health journey! I have lost 50 pounds since last May using keto and intermittent fasting, implementing much of your advice, and I am now very close to my weight goal. I hit the occasional plateau along the way and at those times I noticed I would need to shift my focus from losing weight to understanding the big picture of my overall health. In that regard, my Mirena IUD (which releases synthetic progesterone teaching my body to make less of its own progesterone) began to seem relevant. I had it implanted in November 2012 and replaced in November 2017. When I had it replaced, I was weighing daily so it was easy to notice a six pound weight jump overnight for no apparent reason.This happened three days after I got the new device and it led me to do some research.

 


I concluded that I really need to get that thing removed which I did in mid-December 2017 over the pushback from my doctor. I got my period back almost immediately and it lasted about a week, but since then (40 days) I have not had my period again. More disturbingly, I am now experiencing other symptoms like itchy skin, shakiness, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, and weakness. I considered electrolyte balance and treated for that with extra salt and magnesium (which always works for me during fasting)—but no effect. I tested my blood sugar when feeling extra shaky and weak—it really felt like hypoglycemia—and it was 83 preprandial (my A1C in November was 4.7).

 


Based on my research, my symptoms suggest low progesterone; if that is the case, how should I proceed? Should I tough it out and wait for my body to ramp its own progesterone production back up? Should I take bioidentical progesterone, or would that throw off my overall hormone balance? Should I look instead to adaptogens like Maca? Is there anything I can focus on nutritionally to encourage a return to optimal hormone balance? I had been feeling so amazing up until recently so these symptoms are hard to miss and are definitely discouraging.

 


Thank you for the wonderful podcast, I look forward to it every week!

 


Kind regards,

 


Stacey

 


2. Is eating high-protein long-term like eating high-carb? Are very low triglycerides a health problem?

 


Hi guys,

 


Can five plus years of eating high protein be just as damaging to someone’s metabolism and insulin levels as eating five years worth of carbage? It seems like right now I am just maintaining weight and body fat levels after the initial water weight loss. I have been in nutritional ketosis for the past five weeks with blood ketone levels ranging from .6-1.3 in the morning. My fasting morning blood glucose readings are 85-102. Also, does having super low triglycerides (below 45) show a sign of any health issues? My triglycerides have been that low for years, way before keto.

 


Thank you so much guys. I have literally been listening to your shows on repeat ever since I discovered them a few weeks ago! You have so much information and explain things in a very fact of the matter way which I really appreciate!

 


Thank you!

3. Is it typical for keto to produce out of whack energy metabolism markers on an organic acid test?

 


Hi Jimmy and Will,

 


I recently did an organic acid test to see the effects keto was having and my energy metabolism markers were completely out of whack. In fact, the people who ran the test took extra long because they repeated it a few times just to be sure there wasn’t a lab error. I’m pretty freaked out by the results and don’t know if there is something problematic going on or if this might be typical of someone on keto.

 


Much appreciated!

– What is the major difference between burning fat and burning ketones for fuel?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


People sometimes talk about burning fat and burning ketones in the same breath as though they were more or less the same thing, but don't think that's quite the case, is it? Let me describe what I think is roughly going on and then please correct me where I am wrong: Assuming blood insulin levels are low enough, fat can be released from the adipose cells. It was in the adipose cells in the form of triglycerides and after release, it is converted into free fatty acids and then the glycerol part is converted into glucose. The free fatty acids go via the blood and can be used in the muscles directly as fuel, for example. Some of the free fatty acids make it to the liver and can be converted to ketones, some of which are used to fuel the brain, and probably can

also fuel the muscles and other parts of the body. Now, in some descriptions, I see ketones being described as byproducts of fat metabolism which I assume means that first the fatty acids are burned for fuel and then ketones result as a byproduct of this metabolism. Is that correct, and if so, can those ketones also be used as fuel? If so, it implies that fat is indeed a super fuel because it can be used twice so to speak. So then what is the biochemical result of burning ketones? Keep in mind that I am seeking, if possible, a reply that is understandable to a layperson like myself but also one which does not oversimplify the science if that’s humanly possible.

 


Many thanks in advance,

 


Mike

– Does getting hungry during a 24-hour fast mean I’m not yet keto-adapted?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I love keto and appreciate you guys for all of the info you put out there! I'm a 5’7” tall, 31-year old female, and weigh 158 pounds. I have been on a ketogenic diet for the past five weeks keeping my carbohydrate intake between 30-50g daily. I work out for an hour with HIIT and weight training about 3-4 times per week as well as 2-3 one-hour classes of indoor cycling weekly. Overall, I have been feeling pretty good with only occasional fatigue. I recently decided to add in fasting to my routine doing several 24-hour fasts so far. I’ve noticed I start to get hungry about 12 hours into these 24-hour fasts and the hunger just lingers for the rest of the fast. Does this mean I’m not keto-adapted? Thanks for your help!

1. Can someone who produces excess bile eat a ketogenic diet if they can’t handle a higher fat intake?

Hey guys,

My daughter is a big believer in keto and she really wants to do the diet for her health. But she has a terrible time with eating fat, even the healthy fats, because of a bad bile reflux condition where she produces too much bile. Foods like guacamole, sausage, and even eggs make her queasy and nauseated. The standard medical advice for this condition is to go on a low-fat diet--something she knows from her research and experience is not a good thing. Do you have any ideas for her about how she can implement a ketogenic approach with this excessive bile issue? I should add that they have done an endoscopy and the doctor could see where her stomach lining was quite inflamed. She takes medications for that and if she misses just one dose, the result is horrible abdominal pain.

Thanks so much for your help!

2. Does consuming sugar and carbs make the infection from legionnaires' disease better or worse?

Hello my friends,

I am new to keto and had to deal with this condition last week known as legionnaires' disease which is a severe form of pneumonia from the lung inflammation usually caused by an infection. I felt like I was basically starving to death. I consume carbs and sugar the last couple of days of dealing with this because I felt like my body needed them since I was in a mentally dark place. This condition left me crying often and feeling absolutely awful. Did the sugar and carbohydrates I consumed dealing with this make the infection worse or are they somehow a good thing when dealing with legionnaires' disease? Thank you for your insights.

3. Why are my fasting blood glucose levels rising since giving up wine when I went keto and will they normalize over time?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been following a low-carb diet for years and recently shifted over to keto. I love drinking wine every single day and I realized I probably was drinking too much of it. BOO! So I decided to give it up altogether to see if it would boost my ketogenic efforts to lose weight and improve my health markers. I lost 35 pounds a couple of years ago eating low-carb, but I haven’t lost anything more since. One thing I’ve always hung my hat on despite the lack of weight loss is my impeccable blood sugar control as well as other health markers I regularly track. I take a medication called Atacand Plus for hypertension but no other medications. I’m sure dropping the remaining 35 pounds of weight from my body will enable me to come off that medication for good. So here’s my issue: since going keto and coming off of my beloved wine, my fasting blood glucose levels have risen. I thought coming off the wine would be a good thing, but it seems my blood sugar has gone in the opposite direction. What’s causing this to happen and will it eventually normalize over time?

Any insight into this is greatly appreciated. Love your podcasts!

– How do Ketonians effectively explain why people will no longer want to eat their favorite carbohydrate foods anymore once keto-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been keto for about a year and a half and had a few bad weeks over the holidays where I went in and out of ketosis and started having carb cravings again. The most amazing and hard to believe thing about keto has been the way carb cravings completely vanish for good so long as I stay in ketosis. In fact, I am in an office right now with a box of donuts right next to me and I simply don’t care nor do I have a desire to consume them. That’s utterly amazing and something I wouldn’t have imagined possible before being keto and experiencing it for myself. Several people in my life have adopted the ketogenic lifestyle after having seen my success and several others showed interest but could not get past the idea of giving up their beloved carbs. I try to explain to them that after they get keto-adapted, they won’t want carbs anymore. But it’s so hard for them to imagine what that would be like. I think that the biggest challenge we Ketonians have is effectively communicating why people won’t want to consume bread, pasta, chips, and all the other crappy carbage they think they can’t live without anymore. Do you have any suggestions on how to best do this?

Thanks so much for all you do!

– Why do I become more stressed, anxious, depressed, and have worse brain health when I switch to eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I love what you guys do. You’re both a wealth of knowledge and I have learned so much from listening to your podcast. I am a 25 year old male, 220 pounds, 13 percent body fat, and a weightlifter. I have experimented with low-carb/ketogenic diets many times consuming 3500 calories with a macronutrient ratio of fat/protein/carbs at 75/23/3 making sure I supplement with plenty of electrolytes and high-quality sources of fat. My stress levels are somewhat high, but I work on keeping them in check. So here’s my issue: when I switch to a more ketogenic approach, I become very stressed, anxious, somewhat depressed, and actually feel like my brain is working at half-capacity. Based on what I hear you guys talk about with other Ketonians, this is quite the opposite of what should be happening. Why do I feel so crappy? My hypothesis is low serotonin levels, high cortisol levels, and perhaps a genetic inability to thrive on keto. Am I on to something or do you have anything else that I haven’t thought of yet? I am extremely frustrated because I believe keto is the ideal way to eat. Help please!

1. Is there a connection between the high-fat content of a ketogenic diet with a hiatal hernia?

Hey guys,

I started keto to help me solve my acid reflux. I've been eating this way for 2 weeks and it seems like my acid is actually getting worse. It gets especially bad after I’ve consumed a really heavy, fatty meal. I am 5’6”,119 pounds, and pretty active. I am trying to gain weight so my daily fat intake is 200g with 20-30g carbohydrates, and 80-100g protein. I've been in ketosis for about 10 and experienced the keto flu which is now getting better. One week into eating keto, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia. Their brochure, of course, said to stay away from fatty foods. They are also checking for gluten intolerance and I already know that I have a slight intolerance to lactose as I would break out with zits every time I drank milk. I haven’t received the result of those tests yet and I haven’t heard much about keto and the impact on a hiatal hernia. Are you are aware of any connection?

2. Would a ketogenic approach provide any relief from the symptoms I’m experiencing from having mono?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thanks for your podcast! I'm a 60 year old woman and have been keto off and on for years and strict keto of 20g carbs daily with intermittent/extended fasts mixed in since May 2016 netting blood ketones levels of .8-2.4. I don't have very much weight to lose and instead use this way of eating to stop my sweet cravings. I have had horrible exhaustion for years and have gone through many treatment programs from many alternative, functional medicine/nutrition programs, but nothing worked. Recently, an MD diagnosed me with the convalescent stage of mono and I have finally found my diagnosis! Sadly, this MD had no solution. Have you heard anything about the relationship between keto and mono? I can see my lymph nodes in my face and neck since they are often very swollen at night, I have annoying tinnitus, and I’m also quite bloated with tummy aches often—my doctor said it’s the mono causing these issues. Any ideas for me to try? I've spent so much money and time trying to get better, I'd love some hope. Thank you so much in advance.

3. Could eating a ketogenic diet reduced the likelihood of developing a streptococcal bacteremia infection?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m 21 years old and have been ketogenic for the past three months seeing major improvements in my appetite, weight, and overall well-being. In 2016, I suffered from streptococcal bacteremia without ever finding the source of the infection. The infectious disease doctor said it was unlikely for me to ever develop it again, but I have a hindsight question about this: had I been eating keto before this happen, could it have reduced the likelihood of me having to suffer from this? Thanks for all the amazing work you do.

– Will taking glycine force your body to burn leftover glucose or will it use stored body fat? Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating low-carb for many years and have only a few more pounds left to lose. I'm currently 5'9" and 142 pounds. I use straight glycine powder (about 4g under my tongue and hold it there for at least 2 minutes) about 45 minutes after every meal to help my digestion. From what I understand, glycine is an amino acid that helps to release insulin to lower glucose and causes glycogen to be released leading to the release of fat cells. My blood ketones range from .9-1.9 mmol and my blood glucose is usually 4.8 to 5.4 (86-97 mg/dL). Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis? Is the glycine forcing my body to burn leftover glucose and not actually burning fat? Or am I burning stored body fat? I’m so confused now and hope that you guys can clear this up for me.

Thank you for your help,

Lisa

– What can a spouse eating keto do to best deal with a non-supportive spouse who doesn’t approve of their chosen diet?

Hey Jimmy and Maria,

Of all the tips and answers you've provided to questions around ketogenic diets, I haven't heard anyone talk about the impact they can have on your relationships. I have an amazing wife who is the mother of our two small children. When I started keto diet last year, she was supportive of my efforts for the first six weeks I was doing it. Part of the challenge was I set her expectations that this would only be a temporary thing. However, once I started seeing some incredibly positive results, I had to continue doing it to reap the benefits. But this is when it created a rift in our relationship. She watched me eat meat and cook foods in bacon grease and couldn’t understand how that could possibly be healthy as she subscribes to a more conventional low-fat diet. Additionally, feeding our kids has been hard (although they do love their daddy’s bacon!). So I decided to relax my ketogenic approach in order to appease my wife and introduced carbs back into my diet. Now I want to do periods of intermittent and extended fasting to mitigate the effects of those added carbs. If my wife reacted to keto the way she did, I can’t imagine how she’s gonna respond to the other F-word. My marriage is very important to me and so is my health. Do you have any tips on how a ketogenic spouse can deal with their spouse who is not supporting their ketogenic way of eating? Thanks for all you do!

1. What vitamin and mineral requirements change from what is in the RDA when you adopt a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I've spent a lot of time learning and implementing the exact ketogenic approach that’s right for me. But it occurred to me as I reviewed my micronutrient intake on keto that the RDA levels from our government are based on a carbohydrate-eating population. The sodium recommendation, for example, is 2.3 grams daily which is woefully inept for someone in nutritional ketosis for a wide variety of reasons you’ve already discussed many times on this podcast. But this example of how far off the RDA for sodium has got me thinking what other micronutrients were are way off on with the recommended daily allowance. I read a study that suggests keto dieters need far less Vitamin C than carb-based eaters. So what other vitamins and mineral RDA requirements might be impacted for someone following a well-formulated ketogenic diet? This seems like an interesting subject to explore.

2. Why does a ketogenic diet and fasting lead to a white or yellow coating on the tongue and will it eventually go away?

Hey Keto Talk,

Many people have pointed out their breath and tongue change while eating a ketogenic diet and during a fast. I’ve seen people posting pictures of their tongue that show a white or yellow coating. What in the world is this and will it eventually go away?

Warm regards,

3. Why did my body suddenly stop thriving despite still being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I started my keto diet a couple of weeks ago and it was typical—the first 3 days were miserable, but on day 4 I felt a drastically better as the ketones kicked in. I had five days of incredible energy, suppressed appetite, and superb cognitive benefits as my blood ketones soared into the 2-3 mmol range. It was great! But then things took a change for the worse as I suddenly started feeling cranky, sluggish, and dealing with brain fog. My ketones dipped slightly, but I was still well into ketosis at 1.5+ on the blood meter. I’ve been drinking plenty of water, consuming sodium, magnesium, and potassium for all the electrolyte benefits. So my questions for you guys is this: Did my body start rejecting the ketones I had been thriving on because it wanted to shift back to burning glucose again? Or is this simply a part of becoming keto-adapted? Any suggestions you have about my situation would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Rob

– Can a BAC breath alcohol analyzer measure ketone levels accurately? Are ketone levels of 5.0+ dangerous?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I have a quick question about using a simple breath alcohol analyzer to test ketone levels. From my understanding, you multiply the number you get on the BAC meter by 4-5 to get the equivalent blood ketone reading. So a 0.4 reading on the BAC would equate to 1.6-2.0 mmol in blood ketones. Is this a valid way to test for ketosis? I know it’s probably inaccurate, but how far off is it? Using this equation to determine my level of ketones with my keto and fasting efforts, I got a 1.3 reading on the BAC which would equate to 5.2-6.5 mmol on the blood ketone meter. Is this a dangerous level of ketones to have?

Thank you for answering my question.

– Is there any connection between HIV medications and the expected benefits of a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to your podcasts everyday and I think you guys are awesome speakers. I'm kinda desperate for some answers as I am HIV positive taking HAART (Genvoya) and have lost 13 pounds rather easily eating keto. I love this way of eating, but for some reason while I'm in ketosis I just don’t feel right. I tried it for several weeks and even kept my salt/potassium/magnesium intake up to help balance my electrolytes. Being on a ketogenic diet, I’ve noticed my sleep get deeper after I used to deal with insomnia regularly. During ketosis I slept like a baby...almost too deep of a sleep if that's possible because my head is swimming all day after waking up from this. Is there some metabolic issue with the HIV medications I am taking that could be preventing me from getting the cognitive and energy benefits of ketones? For now, I'm just eating low-carb but avoiding ketosis because of these negative effects.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

1. Does a high-fat diet disrupt the mucous gut barrier and change the role the microbiome plays in the body?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Bestselling author Sylvia Tara writes on page 120 of her book The Secret Life of Fat that "the mucous gut barrier can be disrupted by a high-fat diet." She quotes Dr. Patrice Cani, a researcher, who implies that high-fat diets change the microbiota composition by disrupting gut microbiome function. Should we Ketonians be concerned about this? I checked Dr. Google, but that only confused me more. Can you share what this is about?

2. Why is my heart racing since I started keto and when can I expect things to return to normal again? Would intense exercise be good or bad during this time?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I'm a 25-year old guy that started doing keto about a week and a half ago and over the past three days my heart has been racing. I usually have a resting heart rate around 55-60 bpm, but when I started eating keto it jumped up to around 75 bpm. I've been doing a lot of research on this and most of what I'm finding deals with electrolyte imbalances. I have been salting my foods with pink Himalayan sea salt, using lite salt for potassium, and magnesium. How long does it usually take to rebalance all the electrolytes when all of these things are being dumped at the beginning of keto so my heart rate will return to normal? And should I be doing high intensity exercise while my body is still adjusting to keto or would that make this issue worse? I'm starting to get a little worried about it.

Be Blessed!

3. Can keto help endometriosis? Will food allergies prevent me from going keto? If dairy is estrogenic, should I avoid them if I have high estrogen?

Hi Jimmy and Will

I have several questions for you guys to answer. Is keto effective for people dealing with endometriosis and endometriosis chocolate cysts (endometriomas)? I already know that I have a moderate intolerance (which means I can only have them every 4 days) to eggs whites, cow's milk, whey, coconut and avocado. I know most people just suspect they are intolerant, but I did blood tests that confirm it. Would these food allergies prevent me from going keto? I’ve heard that dairy is inflammatory for the body and can carry extra estrogens, so should women with high estrogen avoid dairy altogether?

Thank you for addressing these for me.

– How is it possible for A1c to fall into a healthy range while fasting insulin precipitously rises?

Hi guys,

I am a devoted listener and have found so much information useful to me on my health journey. I am a very active, very trim 5'6" 115-pound woman who is 55 years old living in the Colorado forest. For as long as I can remember, I have been eating a ketogenic diet for 6 months of the year (during the fall and winter) for most of my adult life and have gone fully keto year round the past two years. I drink wine from Dry Farm Wines but no other alcohol. My question is about some blood test results that have me scratching my head about what to make of it. I do regular home A1c tests and I’ve noticed it drop from 5.8 down to 5.0. Perfect response on keto. But when I had my insulin checked over that same time period, I noticed it has risen from 8 to 15 in just six months while eating keto. How is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

– What evidence is there that it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to become keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am such a big fan of Keto Talk and have a quick question for you guys to address. I’m in a Facebook discussion with a calories in, calories out carb-lover. He says there is no such thing keto-adaptation that takes upwards of 4-6 weeks. This fits within his narrative and I would like to rebut that if possible. Do you have any evidence from research that discusses the shift from sugar burner to fat burner and how long it can take? I remember Dr. Nally used to say that cell membrane transporters can take 4-6 weeks to optimize for optimal ketone utilization. Can you help me respond to this keto skeptic?

Thanks and best regards,

Sean

1. Why have my episodes of vertigo increased since I started eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am very grateful for your podcasts as I find them extremely helpful to me and my family as we continue on this ketogenic lifestyle. I am a 33-year old female and was diagnosed with vertigo seven years ago. These episodes were always sporadic when they would hit every couple of years. But I’ve noticed since I started keto that these episodes are happening with greater frequency. Perhaps it coincidence that they started happening more often when I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but I’m wondering if this is something I should expect to be happening more when eating this way. In five months of keto, I’ve lost 55 pounds and feel amazing except for the vertigo issues. Any ideas you can share about this with me?

Thank you for being my keto gurus!

2. Can keto help me normalize my cortisol levels so I can stop my progressive weight gain?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I had my metabolism tested with one of those at-home blood and saliva tests and it came back saying I have abnormally low cortisol. I tested myself because I have been rapidly gaining weight even though I follow a low-carb diet and exercise regularly. I’ll admit my low-carb diet up until lately has not been ideal because it is probably too low-fat and too high-protein. I now know better after reading Keto Clarity. Everything I have read about having low cortisol talks about it within the context of having Addison’s disease. I don’t have any other symptoms of Addison’s and I’m wondering why I’m having these low cortisol readings. Would a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet help remedy the cortisol issues? My objective is to be healthy, but I desperately want to stop gaining weight despite eating well. I have always been normal weight my entire life. Any insights you could give me are appreciated.

Thank you,

Gretchen

3. Is there any relationship between histamines and a positive benefit coming from consuming a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

Have you ever discussed the relationship between histamines and the role a ketogenic can play in helping with this issue? I’ve been having terrible itching and hives and my doctor put me on Zyrtec and Zantac. But I really don’t want to take medications for this if there is hope that keto, supplements, and lifestyle changes that can improve this. Thanks so much for your help with this.

– What can a Ketonian share with their non-keto primary care physician to encourage him to learn more about a low-carb, high-fat diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for health care—Houston, Texas where the Texas Medical Center is located. But even with all of the medical schools, doctors, and health professionals in this city, I have not yet been able to find a primary care physician who has adequate knowledge about keto within a reasonable driving distance of my home. Like most of us Ketonians, I will likely need to do what I can to educate my current primary care physician about the ins and outs of a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach. Do you have any suggestions about how I can begin this process with my doctor in the very limited 10ish minutes I have with him as a patient? What specific information can I convey to my doctor that would make a positive initial impression about keto to encourage him to learn more? What are the key points to underscore and what should I never NOT talk about because it would immediately trigger a negative response? Or is all of this an exercise in futility? Help!

Thank you for a great podcast.

Marsha

“If fiber is your argument for grains, green leafy keto friendly vegetables have lots more fiber. The fiber industry has brilliant marketing, but it's not true.” – Dr. Will Cole
Here’s what Jimmy,Will, and Dr. Diulus talked about in Episode 93:

– Why cutting out carbs is making you fat

– Why am I not losing weight?

– Keto diet burns TEN TIMES more fat than a standard diet – even without exercise, finds study

– Do not eat your veggies — if they are grown in your front yard, Miami Shores says

– Why do all carbohydrates seem to wreak havoc on my joints and what exactly does keto do to make the pain go away?

Love you guys and Keto Talk! I have a question that’s bugging me because I haven’t found an adequate answer to it yet. What exactly is the science behind WHY carbohydrates, even the so-called whole food ones, make my joints hurt? And why does eating keto cure my joint pain? I love that I have a natural cure for this annoying issue, but I still want to know why! Thanks for doing what you do!

1. Why did my white blood cell count drop to “very low” levels since I went keto?

What can I do to raise it back up again? Hi guys, I love the show and especially love your passion for this topic. I have a question for you to address that is a bit concerning. My wife and I are both 55 years old and in very good health. We went Paleo a couple of years ago and became fully keto last year. My wife had blood work done recently that showed her white blood cell count was very low at 2.9. See below. In looking back at one of her pre-keto labs from 2015, her WBC was low at that time as well at 4.1. But now it has dropped into the "very low" range of 2.9 since going fully keto. Is there any relationship between being in a state of nutritional ketosis and low white blood cell count? Do you have any recommendations on how to boost her WBC? Should I increase my protein?

Thank you for all you do!

Jeff

2. Why did I lose my period when I started eating keto?

Why is my skin still so dry despite eating a ketogenic diet? Dear Jimmy and Will, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Keto Talk. I’ve been eating this way for a few months and really feel great. I have always been sporty and active living at a healthy weight with a good diet. But I have suffered from multiple illnesses over the years, including orthostatic hypotension, hypermobility spectrum disorder, psoriasis, and very dry skin especially on my forearms and shins. Much to my amazement, since adopting a keto lifestyle, my balance has completely resolved after two decades of problems with this! Additionally, the psoriasis appears to be settling down. After listening to so many of your podcasts, I realize my multiple illnesses, 10 years of PTSD, and 8 concussions have caused some major inflammation in my body. So with all this context about me, here are my two concerns: Why have my periods stopped since going keto when I’ve always been regular before? Is this normal hormonal reaction and when should I expect it to restart? And why is my skin still very dry? Will it eventually clear up?

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

3. Can you explain the relationship between insulin resistance and high calcium levels in easy-to-understand language?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole! I recently figured out that I have hyperparathyroidism (hypothyroid, but hyperPARAthyroid) because I kept having high calcium levels and ending up in the hospital with AFIB. I started searching everything I could about this condition and what could be contributing to it. Now I’m wondering if my continued insulin resistance and need for insulin despite being keto for several years might somehow be related. To my surprise, a search on hyperparathyroidism and insulin resistance brought up some interesting information on this very subject! Can you explain in everyday language what the connection might be between this condition and IR and if there is reason to have hope that this might play a part in my insulin resistance improving more now that I've had the bad gland removed? I'm only a couple of weeks out of surgery but other symptoms I was experiencing have already gotten much better! I'm just really hoping this will be yet another benefit and want to better understand how high calcium levels impact insulin resistance.

Thanks for your help!

Why did my voice change to sound like an old man since I started eating a ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole, You guys can count me as another person who has experienced vocal issues that have popped up since starting on the ketogenic diet. I started eating keto in July and by September I noticed my voice started sounding fuzzy like a very old man. You’ve briefly addressed this issue before stating that a common culprit is coffee consumption, but I don’t drink very much coffee and in fact a lot less of it since I switched to keto. I also don’t eat chocolate or peppermint. Any clue why I sound like the old guy in the Up movie?

Thanks for your help.
