If you are interested in the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, then this is the podcast for you. We zero in exclusively on all the questions people have about how being in a state of nutritional ketosis and the effects it has on your health. There are a lot of myths about keto floating around out there and our two amazing cohosts are shooting them down one at a time. Keto Talk is cohosted by 10-year veteran health podcaster and international bestselling author Jimmy Moore from "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and Arizona osteopath and certified bariatric physician Dr. Adam Nally from "Doc Muscles" who thoroughly share from their wealth of experience on the ketogenic lifestyle each and every Thursday.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 22:
- Why did I feel drained, exhausted, and weak when I started eating ketogenic?
I got in ketosis and stayed there for a solid month testing with the Ketonix breath analyzer, blowing consistently yellow and red, with an occasional green. I felt drained, exhausted, and weak for a whole month. I used the KETO//OS product and ate good fats and moderate protein. I used sea salt often hoping that would help. What was I doing wrong? In order to get through my busy days and start feeling good again, I upped the carbs knocking me out of ketosis. I'm still low carb, but not ketogenic. I have energy again.
1. Does being in ketosis repel mosquitos?
Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,
So, I sort of recall hearing somewhere someone said that mosquitos like "sweet" people. That is, people with lots of sugar in their blood.
Would that mean that they wouldn't like people in ketosis?
Is there any research out there on the topic?
2. Will consuming nuts negatively impact your keto-adaptation?
3. Does staying ketogenic make you more intolerant to starchy/sugary foods?
Hello...help please! I eat around 40 carbs total and from veggies each day, and have had improved health and stable weight and mood for two years doing so; my Paleo trainer (intelligent, thoughtful guy) advises me to eat tubers some each week so that I will be "metabolically flexible"- so my body is accustomed to burn both glucose and fat easily; he says I'm losing my ability to burn sugar easily by being consistently low carb. He says just as my body had to learn to be fat adapted....now it is not "sugar adapted", and this is making me even more intolerable to starchy/sugary foods...equating to less overall health. Have you heard of this "flexibility factor"? Can you and Doc Nally address this in a podcast soon.
Love your podcasts….thank you much!!
Plus, don't miss our featured listener question from this week's featured Keto Talk Mailbox e-mail at the end of the show:
Does Dr. Nally have any experience with normal weight patients who are perimenopausal or menopausal age who adopted a ketogenic diet to alleviate the hormone rollercoaster and to head off the potential weight gain that often happens during that time of life? I wonder how a diet that is great for fertility in women of childbearing age could also be good for older women in which increased fertility and higher estrogen levels increase their cancer risk. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. Keep up the great work!!!
