Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 36:
- Do supplements designed to lower cortisol improve ketosis?
Hi guys, I've heard you and Dr. Nally share many times about how cortisol impacts us in a variety of ways. So how do efforts to lower cortisol including supplements designed to do this interact with a ketogenic diet?

1. Can a ketogenic diet reduce plaque build-up in the arteries? How long will it take?
Hi Jimmy and Adam,
Most of us who are on the ketogenic diet tend to be overweight and have been for years. I would dare say many of us also have some plaque buildup in our arteries to some degree and are concerned about our heart health. So my question for you is this: what is the best way to reduce this plaque build-up and how long would it take to reduce it? I’ve heard you mention that your arteries are clean and in good health after many years of being on the low-carb/keto lifestyle.
I love this show so much you guys. Adam’s knowledge and patient experience on keto is fantastic and is a great adjunct with Jimmy’s experience with ketosis. I have all of your books, Jimmy, and love the knowledge you shared in them. Thank you for your work!

2. Why am I getting winded and lacking energy climbing stairs since starting keto?
I love your podcast. I've been devouring every episode like a fat juicy ribeye. I have been on my keto journey for about a month now and have lost about 17 pounds so far. I’ve noticed a lot of improvements in many aspects of my life from energy to eliminating my mood swings. But there is one thing that seems to boggle me—climbing stairs.
You would think that losing 17 pounds would make it easier to climb stairs, but it seems harder since I have been on this journey. I work on the second floor and have to climb three flights of steps everyday since there is no elevator available. I'm huffing and puffing by the end of it and my quads are burning, but only temporarily. I don't ever feel sore, but I almost always feel exhausted from this.
Are my muscles atrophying eating keto? Or since running on fat is like running on diesel, do I just lack the burst of energy that I had when I ran on sugar?
I’ve done moderate exercise during the week since I started the diet, including body weight squats about twice a week. I would imagine that my muscles are getting stronger but this stair climbing challenge seems odd.
Thanks again for answering my question,

3. Can a ketogenic diet help with jet lag?
Have you run into anything about whether there is a relationship between being in ketosis helping reduce the symptoms of jet lag?
KETO TALK MAILBOX:
Hello Jimmy and Adam,
First of all, great podcast! Also, Jimmy I'm a big fan of all your bestselling books.
I recently converted to keto about 3 months ago consuming about 40 grams of carbs per day. However, my urine pH has become low at 5.5 according to a 24-hour test prescribed by my urologist. This test was prescribed because of some kidney stone issues which started several months before going on the ketogenic diet.
After reading up on low pH and how it can negatively affect my health, I think that I may be eating too many high acidic foods on my keto diet. So many of the tasty keto foods I eat are very acidic. I have started drinking high pH water and my urologist prescribed 1620 mg Potassium Citrite twice daily to elevate the pH.
Can you and the Doc please discuss the aspect of pH (in the body, blood, urine, saliva, etc.) and the keto diet on your podcast?
Thanks again for all you do to help people towards better health!
