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.

Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam address a disturbing list of adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet claimed by a prominent member of the Paleo community in Episode 23!
Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 23:
- Why did I lose weight fast in my face, but not in my stomach on a ketogenic diet?
I have been in ketosis for about 5 weeks. Basically my face fat is a lot less than my body fat. So i still have a nice sized gut but my face is pretty skinny. A lot of paleo are experiencing this as well. I’ve heard some people have meaty faces and some have more boney (maybe genetics). Koreans seem to have a nice big fat face and like 0% body fat, how are they doing this?! People in my life, friends and family are saying I'm too skinny, but it's my face not the body. wondering if Doc Muscles has any ideas…maybe mineral deficiency or protein too low? I'm 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carb, calories are anywhere from 1300-2000. How can I make my face fatter?
- Responding to each of the so-called adverse reactions to a ketogenic diet listed by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne in this Facebook post, with detailed answers to the following claims:
Gastrointestinal disturbances (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, constipation, GERD)
Thinning hair/hair loss
Muscle cramps or weakness
Low platelet count
Renal tubular acidosis
Disordered mineral metabolism
Poor growth in children
Sepsis, infection, bacteria overgrowth
Long QT intervals
Shift towards atherogenic lipid profiles (including hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia)
Menstrual irregularities and amenorrhea
We get into the deep specifics about why Dr. Ballantyne's conclusions about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets she believes are based on strong scientific studies have major flaws in them and why most of the research she cites simply does not apply to the general population. This is one Keto Talk episode you are NOT going to want to miss!
