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. We love hearing from our fabulous Ketonian listeners with new questions–send an email to Jimmy at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. And if you’re not already subscribed to the podcast on iTunes and listened to the past episodes, then you can do that and leave a review HERE. Listen in today as Jimmy and Will answer your keto questions in Episode 105.

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!

Jen

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.

1. Why am I not experiencing the mental and energy benefits of ketosis despite having higher levels of blood ketones?

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,

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?
