Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 46:
TESTIMONIAL FROM LISTENER
I wanted to update you and Doc Nally on how it has being going using Symlin (synthetic Amylin) to help reduce my insulin requirements and high morning blood sugar levels. I have to tell you I’m absolutely blown away by how well it’s working and the major metabolic improvements I’m seeing in just 10 days of using it so far! I’ve dropped 19 pounds in just 10 days right in the middle of my birthday and Thanksgiving. I’ve been able to totally drop my fast acting insulin and have brought my basal insulin down from 34 units twice daily to 22 units twice daily because I was having low blood sugars!
I test my blood glucose 7-8 times a day to keep an eye on that and my readings have all been in the normal range even with much lower insulin injections. In fact, the A1C “estimator” on my glucose logging app is showing my A1C dropped by .4 in 10 days. I’m sleeping WAY better. I’m feeling full after meals now instead of starving an hour later because the insulin and Amylin are better regulated.
Thank you, Dr. Nally! I had never even heard of Amylin before he mentioned it on Keto Talk. I’m becoming an expert now that I’m researching it more and more and seeing the effects it has on me personally. Now I want to help more diabetics learn about this “other hormone” that I suspect is missing in a lot of unknowing people!
You guys are awesome! Thanks again.
- What scientific studies and references can I use to counter anti-leto arguments?
Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,
I have been listening to Keto Talk since about Episode 20 and have been hooked every since. I am a Registered Dietitian in Washington state and I promote low-carb to my patients. I recently had a fellow dietitian reprimand my efforts to promote fat in the diet as healthy. It’s very frustrating!
She said that promoting saturated fat was not evidence-based especially for key cholesterol markers, but I have found several studies that show saturated fat as healthy or at worst neutral in the context of a lower-carb diet. My own n=1 experiment has put my triglycerides at 75 and my HDL at 84 eating around 100g carbs daily with plenty of animal fat in my diet. The other “evidence based” crap that is promoted in our clinic has to do with getting 130g of carbs as the daily minimum. In Episode 41, Dr. Nally said the liver creates about 280g of glucose daily via gluconeogenesis.
Is there a study or cited reference I can get my hands on? Any help is appreciated. I am so thankful that low-carb is accessible and I have joined the Diet Doctor website as a member to stay up to date on the latest, greatest in low-carb. I am pretty immersed in the low-carb culture online and it’s always such a shock when my own colleagues haven’t figured it out yet. My next step is to attempt full-on keto. Thanks for all you do. It keeps me going in a world of carboholics!
1. What transports ketones from the liver to the cells? Is it insulin like it is for glucose?
The information you share on this podcast is priceless, so please keep it up. I have a quick question for you to address: If insulin is the vehicle that transports glucose to the cells of the body for energy and high insulin levels is what leads to inflammation and disease then, what is the vehicle that transports ketone bodies from the liver to all the cells? Please tell me it’s not insulin because that would be weird,
Thanks in advance,
2. Does Bulletproof coffee on a ketogenic diet stall or prevent fat loss?
Several keto experts online rail against Bulletproof coffee for people who are doing strict keto. They claim it may be stalling people looking to produce fat loss. I would love to hear your opinion on this. Thank you so much for what you do. I love your books, Jimmy!
3. If you have had weight loss surgery, how do you best implement a ketogenic diet?
Hi Jimmy and Adam,
I just finished listening to the audiobook for Keto Clarity and I’m now listening for the second time. I had gastric sleeve surgery over a year ago and have lost 100 pounds. With 2/3 of my stomach gone I can't eat very big meals and was wondering if you could give me some ideas on how to make the ketogenic diet work for someone like me.
KETO TALK MAILBOX
Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,
I’m curious about doing ketosis seasonally like our ancestors would have been where carbs are virtually gone during the fall/winter/spring months and then the sweeter and starchier foods are abundant during the summer. I'd love to hear a discussion on what this cycle of eating would have looked like so I can mimic it today.
