– Why am I waking up in the middle of the night and struggling to get back to sleep? What can I do?

 


Hi Keto Talk,

 


I understand sleep is an important component of ketosis and overall health, but it’s a big problem for me. For the past three years I wake up between 3:15-3:30AM and struggle to get back to sleep. A few months ago my doctor prescribed Silenor. It seemed to help in the beginning but it is helping much less now. I believe this medication might be interfering with my pursuit of ketosis and fat loss. I know I have high cortisol levels, but my doctor is unconcerned since I don’t display any of the typical symptoms. I’ve tried melatonin and valerian, but they both give me horrendous nightmares. Most sleep herbs are designed for falling asleep, but that’s not my issue. Do you have any suggestions for me?

 


Thanks,

 


Laura

1. How do I deal with this low progesterone to optimize and complement my ketogenic nutrition?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


I have learned so much from both of you on my health journey! I have lost 50 pounds since last May using keto and intermittent fasting, implementing much of your advice, and I am now very close to my weight goal. I hit the occasional plateau along the way and at those times I noticed I would need to shift my focus from losing weight to understanding the big picture of my overall health. In that regard, my Mirena IUD (which releases synthetic progesterone teaching my body to make less of its own progesterone) began to seem relevant. I had it implanted in November 2012 and replaced in November 2017. When I had it replaced, I was weighing daily so it was easy to notice a six pound weight jump overnight for no apparent reason.This happened three days after I got the new device and it led me to do some research.

 


I concluded that I really need to get that thing removed which I did in mid-December 2017 over the pushback from my doctor. I got my period back almost immediately and it lasted about a week, but since then (40 days) I have not had my period again. More disturbingly, I am now experiencing other symptoms like itchy skin, shakiness, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, and weakness. I considered electrolyte balance and treated for that with extra salt and magnesium (which always works for me during fasting)—but no effect. I tested my blood sugar when feeling extra shaky and weak—it really felt like hypoglycemia—and it was 83 preprandial (my A1C in November was 4.7).

 


Based on my research, my symptoms suggest low progesterone; if that is the case, how should I proceed? Should I tough it out and wait for my body to ramp its own progesterone production back up? Should I take bioidentical progesterone, or would that throw off my overall hormone balance? Should I look instead to adaptogens like Maca? Is there anything I can focus on nutritionally to encourage a return to optimal hormone balance? I had been feeling so amazing up until recently so these symptoms are hard to miss and are definitely discouraging.

 


Thank you for the wonderful podcast, I look forward to it every week!

 


Kind regards,

 


Stacey

 


2. Is eating high-protein long-term like eating high-carb? Are very low triglycerides a health problem?

 


Hi guys,

 


Can five plus years of eating high protein be just as damaging to someone’s metabolism and insulin levels as eating five years worth of carbage? It seems like right now I am just maintaining weight and body fat levels after the initial water weight loss. I have been in nutritional ketosis for the past five weeks with blood ketone levels ranging from .6-1.3 in the morning. My fasting morning blood glucose readings are 85-102. Also, does having super low triglycerides (below 45) show a sign of any health issues? My triglycerides have been that low for years, way before keto.

 


Thank you so much guys. I have literally been listening to your shows on repeat ever since I discovered them a few weeks ago! You have so much information and explain things in a very fact of the matter way which I really appreciate!

 


Thank you!

3. Is it typical for keto to produce out of whack energy metabolism markers on an organic acid test?

 


Hi Jimmy and Will,

 


I recently did an organic acid test to see the effects keto was having and my energy metabolism markers were completely out of whack. In fact, the people who ran the test took extra long because they repeated it a few times just to be sure there wasn’t a lab error. I’m pretty freaked out by the results and don’t know if there is something problematic going on or if this might be typical of someone on keto.

 


Much appreciated!

– What is the major difference between burning fat and burning ketones for fuel?

 


Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 


People sometimes talk about burning fat and burning ketones in the same breath as though they were more or less the same thing, but don't think that's quite the case, is it? Let me describe what I think is roughly going on and then please correct me where I am wrong: Assuming blood insulin levels are low enough, fat can be released from the adipose cells. It was in the adipose cells in the form of triglycerides and after release, it is converted into free fatty acids and then the glycerol part is converted into glucose. The free fatty acids go via the blood and can be used in the muscles directly as fuel, for example. Some of the free fatty acids make it to the liver and can be converted to ketones, some of which are used to fuel the brain, and probably can

also fuel the muscles and other parts of the body. Now, in some descriptions, I see ketones being described as byproducts of fat metabolism which I assume means that first the fatty acids are burned for fuel and then ketones result as a byproduct of this metabolism. Is that correct, and if so, can those ketones also be used as fuel? If so, it implies that fat is indeed a super fuel because it can be used twice so to speak. So then what is the biochemical result of burning ketones? Keep in mind that I am seeking, if possible, a reply that is understandable to a layperson like myself but also one which does not oversimplify the science if that’s humanly possible.

 


Many thanks in advance,

 


Mike

– Does getting hungry during a 24-hour fast mean I’m not yet keto-adapted?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I love keto and appreciate you guys for all of the info you put out there! I'm a 5’7” tall, 31-year old female, and weigh 158 pounds. I have been on a ketogenic diet for the past five weeks keeping my carbohydrate intake between 30-50g daily. I work out for an hour with HIIT and weight training about 3-4 times per week as well as 2-3 one-hour classes of indoor cycling weekly. Overall, I have been feeling pretty good with only occasional fatigue. I recently decided to add in fasting to my routine doing several 24-hour fasts so far. I’ve noticed I start to get hungry about 12 hours into these 24-hour fasts and the hunger just lingers for the rest of the fast. Does this mean I’m not keto-adapted? Thanks for your help!

1. Can someone who produces excess bile eat a ketogenic diet if they can’t handle a higher fat intake?

Hey guys,

My daughter is a big believer in keto and she really wants to do the diet for her health. But she has a terrible time with eating fat, even the healthy fats, because of a bad bile reflux condition where she produces too much bile. Foods like guacamole, sausage, and even eggs make her queasy and nauseated. The standard medical advice for this condition is to go on a low-fat diet--something she knows from her research and experience is not a good thing. Do you have any ideas for her about how she can implement a ketogenic approach with this excessive bile issue? I should add that they have done an endoscopy and the doctor could see where her stomach lining was quite inflamed. She takes medications for that and if she misses just one dose, the result is horrible abdominal pain.

Thanks so much for your help!

2. Does consuming sugar and carbs make the infection from legionnaires' disease better or worse?

Hello my friends,

I am new to keto and had to deal with this condition last week known as legionnaires' disease which is a severe form of pneumonia from the lung inflammation usually caused by an infection. I felt like I was basically starving to death. I consume carbs and sugar the last couple of days of dealing with this because I felt like my body needed them since I was in a mentally dark place. This condition left me crying often and feeling absolutely awful. Did the sugar and carbohydrates I consumed dealing with this make the infection worse or are they somehow a good thing when dealing with legionnaires' disease? Thank you for your insights.

3. Why are my fasting blood glucose levels rising since giving up wine when I went keto and will they normalize over time?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been following a low-carb diet for years and recently shifted over to keto. I love drinking wine every single day and I realized I probably was drinking too much of it. BOO! So I decided to give it up altogether to see if it would boost my ketogenic efforts to lose weight and improve my health markers. I lost 35 pounds a couple of years ago eating low-carb, but I haven’t lost anything more since. One thing I’ve always hung my hat on despite the lack of weight loss is my impeccable blood sugar control as well as other health markers I regularly track. I take a medication called Atacand Plus for hypertension but no other medications. I’m sure dropping the remaining 35 pounds of weight from my body will enable me to come off that medication for good. So here’s my issue: since going keto and coming off of my beloved wine, my fasting blood glucose levels have risen. I thought coming off the wine would be a good thing, but it seems my blood sugar has gone in the opposite direction. What’s causing this to happen and will it eventually normalize over time?

Any insight into this is greatly appreciated. Love your podcasts!

– How do Ketonians effectively explain why people will no longer want to eat their favorite carbohydrate foods anymore once keto-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been keto for about a year and a half and had a few bad weeks over the holidays where I went in and out of ketosis and started having carb cravings again. The most amazing and hard to believe thing about keto has been the way carb cravings completely vanish for good so long as I stay in ketosis. In fact, I am in an office right now with a box of donuts right next to me and I simply don’t care nor do I have a desire to consume them. That’s utterly amazing and something I wouldn’t have imagined possible before being keto and experiencing it for myself. Several people in my life have adopted the ketogenic lifestyle after having seen my success and several others showed interest but could not get past the idea of giving up their beloved carbs. I try to explain to them that after they get keto-adapted, they won’t want carbs anymore. But it’s so hard for them to imagine what that would be like. I think that the biggest challenge we Ketonians have is effectively communicating why people won’t want to consume bread, pasta, chips, and all the other crappy carbage they think they can’t live without anymore. Do you have any suggestions on how to best do this?

Thanks so much for all you do!

– Why do I become more stressed, anxious, depressed, and have worse brain health when I switch to eating a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I love what you guys do. You’re both a wealth of knowledge and I have learned so much from listening to your podcast. I am a 25 year old male, 220 pounds, 13 percent body fat, and a weightlifter. I have experimented with low-carb/ketogenic diets many times consuming 3500 calories with a macronutrient ratio of fat/protein/carbs at 75/23/3 making sure I supplement with plenty of electrolytes and high-quality sources of fat. My stress levels are somewhat high, but I work on keeping them in check. So here’s my issue: when I switch to a more ketogenic approach, I become very stressed, anxious, somewhat depressed, and actually feel like my brain is working at half-capacity. Based on what I hear you guys talk about with other Ketonians, this is quite the opposite of what should be happening. Why do I feel so crappy? My hypothesis is low serotonin levels, high cortisol levels, and perhaps a genetic inability to thrive on keto. Am I on to something or do you have anything else that I haven’t thought of yet? I am extremely frustrated because I believe keto is the ideal way to eat. Help please!

1. Is there a connection between the high-fat content of a ketogenic diet with a hiatal hernia?

Hey guys,

I started keto to help me solve my acid reflux. I've been eating this way for 2 weeks and it seems like my acid is actually getting worse. It gets especially bad after I’ve consumed a really heavy, fatty meal. I am 5’6”,119 pounds, and pretty active. I am trying to gain weight so my daily fat intake is 200g with 20-30g carbohydrates, and 80-100g protein. I've been in ketosis for about 10 and experienced the keto flu which is now getting better. One week into eating keto, I had an upper endoscopy done and they found a small hiatal hernia. Their brochure, of course, said to stay away from fatty foods. They are also checking for gluten intolerance and I already know that I have a slight intolerance to lactose as I would break out with zits every time I drank milk. I haven’t received the result of those tests yet and I haven’t heard much about keto and the impact on a hiatal hernia. Are you are aware of any connection?

2. Would a ketogenic approach provide any relief from the symptoms I’m experiencing from having mono?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thanks for your podcast! I'm a 60 year old woman and have been keto off and on for years and strict keto of 20g carbs daily with intermittent/extended fasts mixed in since May 2016 netting blood ketones levels of .8-2.4. I don't have very much weight to lose and instead use this way of eating to stop my sweet cravings. I have had horrible exhaustion for years and have gone through many treatment programs from many alternative, functional medicine/nutrition programs, but nothing worked. Recently, an MD diagnosed me with the convalescent stage of mono and I have finally found my diagnosis! Sadly, this MD had no solution. Have you heard anything about the relationship between keto and mono? I can see my lymph nodes in my face and neck since they are often very swollen at night, I have annoying tinnitus, and I’m also quite bloated with tummy aches often—my doctor said it’s the mono causing these issues. Any ideas for me to try? I've spent so much money and time trying to get better, I'd love some hope. Thank you so much in advance.

3. Could eating a ketogenic diet reduced the likelihood of developing a streptococcal bacteremia infection?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m 21 years old and have been ketogenic for the past three months seeing major improvements in my appetite, weight, and overall well-being. In 2016, I suffered from streptococcal bacteremia without ever finding the source of the infection. The infectious disease doctor said it was unlikely for me to ever develop it again, but I have a hindsight question about this: had I been eating keto before this happen, could it have reduced the likelihood of me having to suffer from this? Thanks for all the amazing work you do.

– Will taking glycine force your body to burn leftover glucose or will it use stored body fat? Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating low-carb for many years and have only a few more pounds left to lose. I'm currently 5'9" and 142 pounds. I use straight glycine powder (about 4g under my tongue and hold it there for at least 2 minutes) about 45 minutes after every meal to help my digestion. From what I understand, glycine is an amino acid that helps to release insulin to lower glucose and causes glycogen to be released leading to the release of fat cells. My blood ketones range from .9-1.9 mmol and my blood glucose is usually 4.8 to 5.4 (86-97 mg/dL). Am I in ketosis or ketoacidosis? Is the glycine forcing my body to burn leftover glucose and not actually burning fat? Or am I burning stored body fat? I’m so confused now and hope that you guys can clear this up for me.

Thank you for your help,

Lisa

– What can a spouse eating keto do to best deal with a non-supportive spouse who doesn’t approve of their chosen diet?

Hey Jimmy and Maria,

Of all the tips and answers you've provided to questions around ketogenic diets, I haven't heard anyone talk about the impact they can have on your relationships. I have an amazing wife who is the mother of our two small children. When I started keto diet last year, she was supportive of my efforts for the first six weeks I was doing it. Part of the challenge was I set her expectations that this would only be a temporary thing. However, once I started seeing some incredibly positive results, I had to continue doing it to reap the benefits. But this is when it created a rift in our relationship. She watched me eat meat and cook foods in bacon grease and couldn’t understand how that could possibly be healthy as she subscribes to a more conventional low-fat diet. Additionally, feeding our kids has been hard (although they do love their daddy’s bacon!). So I decided to relax my ketogenic approach in order to appease my wife and introduced carbs back into my diet. Now I want to do periods of intermittent and extended fasting to mitigate the effects of those added carbs. If my wife reacted to keto the way she did, I can’t imagine how she’s gonna respond to the other F-word. My marriage is very important to me and so is my health. Do you have any tips on how a ketogenic spouse can deal with their spouse who is not supporting their ketogenic way of eating? Thanks for all you do!

1. What vitamin and mineral requirements change from what is in the RDA when you adopt a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I've spent a lot of time learning and implementing the exact ketogenic approach that’s right for me. But it occurred to me as I reviewed my micronutrient intake on keto that the RDA levels from our government are based on a carbohydrate-eating population. The sodium recommendation, for example, is 2.3 grams daily which is woefully inept for someone in nutritional ketosis for a wide variety of reasons you’ve already discussed many times on this podcast. But this example of how far off the RDA for sodium has got me thinking what other micronutrients were are way off on with the recommended daily allowance. I read a study that suggests keto dieters need far less Vitamin C than carb-based eaters. So what other vitamins and mineral RDA requirements might be impacted for someone following a well-formulated ketogenic diet? This seems like an interesting subject to explore.

2. Why does a ketogenic diet and fasting lead to a white or yellow coating on the tongue and will it eventually go away?

Hey Keto Talk,

Many people have pointed out their breath and tongue change while eating a ketogenic diet and during a fast. I’ve seen people posting pictures of their tongue that show a white or yellow coating. What in the world is this and will it eventually go away?

Warm regards,

3. Why did my body suddenly stop thriving despite still being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I started my keto diet a couple of weeks ago and it was typical—the first 3 days were miserable, but on day 4 I felt a drastically better as the ketones kicked in. I had five days of incredible energy, suppressed appetite, and superb cognitive benefits as my blood ketones soared into the 2-3 mmol range. It was great! But then things took a change for the worse as I suddenly started feeling cranky, sluggish, and dealing with brain fog. My ketones dipped slightly, but I was still well into ketosis at 1.5+ on the blood meter. I’ve been drinking plenty of water, consuming sodium, magnesium, and potassium for all the electrolyte benefits. So my questions for you guys is this: Did my body start rejecting the ketones I had been thriving on because it wanted to shift back to burning glucose again? Or is this simply a part of becoming keto-adapted? Any suggestions you have about my situation would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Rob

– Can a BAC breath alcohol analyzer measure ketone levels accurately? Are ketone levels of 5.0+ dangerous?

Hi Jimmy and Maria,

I have a quick question about using a simple breath alcohol analyzer to test ketone levels. From my understanding, you multiply the number you get on the BAC meter by 4-5 to get the equivalent blood ketone reading. So a 0.4 reading on the BAC would equate to 1.6-2.0 mmol in blood ketones. Is this a valid way to test for ketosis? I know it’s probably inaccurate, but how far off is it? Using this equation to determine my level of ketones with my keto and fasting efforts, I got a 1.3 reading on the BAC which would equate to 5.2-6.5 mmol on the blood ketone meter. Is this a dangerous level of ketones to have?

Thank you for answering my question.

– Is there any connection between HIV medications and the expected benefits of a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to your podcasts everyday and I think you guys are awesome speakers. I'm kinda desperate for some answers as I am HIV positive taking HAART (Genvoya) and have lost 13 pounds rather easily eating keto. I love this way of eating, but for some reason while I'm in ketosis I just don’t feel right. I tried it for several weeks and even kept my salt/potassium/magnesium intake up to help balance my electrolytes. Being on a ketogenic diet, I’ve noticed my sleep get deeper after I used to deal with insomnia regularly. During ketosis I slept like a baby...almost too deep of a sleep if that's possible because my head is swimming all day after waking up from this. Is there some metabolic issue with the HIV medications I am taking that could be preventing me from getting the cognitive and energy benefits of ketones? For now, I'm just eating low-carb but avoiding ketosis because of these negative effects.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

1. Does a high-fat diet disrupt the mucous gut barrier and change the role the microbiome plays in the body?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Bestselling author Sylvia Tara writes on page 120 of her book The Secret Life of Fat that "the mucous gut barrier can be disrupted by a high-fat diet." She quotes Dr. Patrice Cani, a researcher, who implies that high-fat diets change the microbiota composition by disrupting gut microbiome function. Should we Ketonians be concerned about this? I checked Dr. Google, but that only confused me more. Can you share what this is about?

Thanks for all the great information!

2. Why is my heart racing since I started keto and when can I expect things to return to normal again? Would intense exercise be good or bad during this time?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I'm a 25-year old guy that started doing keto about a week and a half ago and over the past three days my heart has been racing. I usually have a resting heart rate around 55-60 bpm, but when I started eating keto it jumped up to around 75 bpm. I've been doing a lot of research on this and most of what I'm finding deals with electrolyte imbalances. I have been salting my foods with pink Himalayan sea salt, using lite salt for potassium, and magnesium. How long does it usually take to rebalance all the electrolytes when all of these things are being dumped at the beginning of keto so my heart rate will return to normal? And should I be doing high intensity exercise while my body is still adjusting to keto or would that make this issue worse? I'm starting to get a little worried about it.

Be Blessed!

3. Can keto help endometriosis? Will food allergies prevent me from going keto? If dairy is estrogenic, should I avoid them if I have high estrogen?

Hi Jimmy and Will

I have several questions for you guys to answer. Is keto effective for people dealing with endometriosis and endometriosis chocolate cysts (endometriomas)? I already know that I have a moderate intolerance (which means I can only have them every 4 days) to eggs whites, cow's milk, whey, coconut and avocado. I know most people just suspect they are intolerant, but I did blood tests that confirm it. Would these food allergies prevent me from going keto? I’ve heard that dairy is inflammatory for the body and can carry extra estrogens, so should women with high estrogen avoid dairy altogether?

Thank you for addressing these for me.

– How is it possible for A1c to fall into a healthy range while fasting insulin precipitously rises?

Hi guys,

I am a devoted listener and have found so much information useful to me on my health journey. I am a very active, very trim 5'6" 115-pound woman who is 55 years old living in the Colorado forest. For as long as I can remember, I have been eating a ketogenic diet for 6 months of the year (during the fall and winter) for most of my adult life and have gone fully keto year round the past two years. I drink wine from Dry Farm Wines but no other alcohol. My question is about some blood test results that have me scratching my head about what to make of it. I do regular home A1c tests and I’ve noticed it drop from 5.8 down to 5.0. Perfect response on keto. But when I had my insulin checked over that same time period, I noticed it has risen from 8 to 15 in just six months while eating keto. How is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

– What evidence is there that it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to become keto-adapted?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am such a big fan of Keto Talk and have a quick question for you guys to address. I’m in a Facebook discussion with a calories in, calories out carb-lover. He says there is no such thing keto-adaptation that takes upwards of 4-6 weeks. This fits within his narrative and I would like to rebut that if possible. Do you have any evidence from research that discusses the shift from sugar burner to fat burner and how long it can take? I remember Dr. Nally used to say that cell membrane transporters can take 4-6 weeks to optimize for optimal ketone utilization. Can you help me respond to this keto skeptic?

Thanks and best regards,

1. Why have my episodes of vertigo increased since I started eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I am very grateful for your podcasts as I find them extremely helpful to me and my family as we continue on this ketogenic lifestyle. I am a 33-year old female and was diagnosed with vertigo seven years ago. These episodes were always sporadic when they would hit every couple of years. But I’ve noticed since I started keto that these episodes are happening with greater frequency. Perhaps it coincidence that they started happening more often when I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but I’m wondering if this is something I should expect to be happening more when eating this way. In five months of keto, I’ve lost 55 pounds and feel amazing except for the vertigo issues. Any ideas you can share about this with me?

Thank you for being my keto gurus!

2. Can keto help me normalize my cortisol levels so I can stop my progressive weight gain?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I had my metabolism tested with one of those at-home blood and saliva tests and it came back saying I have abnormally low cortisol. I tested myself because I have been rapidly gaining weight even though I follow a low-carb diet and exercise regularly. I’ll admit my low-carb diet up until lately has not been ideal because it is probably too low-fat and too high-protein. I now know better after reading Keto Clarity. Everything I have read about having low cortisol talks about it within the context of having Addison’s disease. I don’t have any other symptoms of Addison’s and I’m wondering why I’m having these low cortisol readings. Would a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet help remedy the cortisol issues? My objective is to be healthy, but I desperately want to stop gaining weight despite eating well. I have always been normal weight my entire life. Any insights you could give me are appreciated.

Thank you,

3. Is there any relationship between histamines and a positive benefit coming from consuming a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

Have you ever discussed the relationship between histamines and the role a ketogenic can play in helping with this issue? I’ve been having terrible itching and hives and my doctor put me on Zyrtec and Zantac. But I really don’t want to take medications for this if there is hope that keto, supplements, and lifestyle changes that can improve this. Thanks so much for your help with this.

– What can a Ketonian share with their non-keto primary care physician to encourage him to learn more about a low-carb, high-fat diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for health care—Houston, Texas where the Texas Medical Center is located. But even with all of the medical schools, doctors, and health professionals in this city, I have not yet been able to find a primary care physician who has adequate knowledge about keto within a reasonable driving distance of my home. Like most of us Ketonians, I will likely need to do what I can to educate my current primary care physician about the ins and outs of a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach. Do you have any suggestions about how I can begin this process with my doctor in the very limited 10ish minutes I have with him as a patient? What specific information can I convey to my doctor that would make a positive initial impression about keto to encourage him to learn more? What are the key points to underscore and what should I never NOT talk about because it would immediately trigger a negative response? Or is all of this an exercise in futility? Help!

Thank you for a great podcast.

1. Why did my white blood cell count drop to “very low” levels since I went keto?

What can I do to raise it back up again? Hi guys, I love the show and especially love your passion for this topic. I have a question for you to address that is a bit concerning. My wife and I are both 55 years old and in very good health. We went Paleo a couple of years ago and became fully keto last year. My wife had blood work done recently that showed her white blood cell count was very low at 2.9. See below. In looking back at one of her pre-keto labs from 2015, her WBC was low at that time as well at 4.1. But now it has dropped into the "very low" range of 2.9 since going fully keto. Is there any relationship between being in a state of nutritional ketosis and low white blood cell count? Do you have any recommendations on how to boost her WBC? Should I increase my protein?

Thank you for all you do!

2. Why did I lose my period when I started eating keto?

Why is my skin still so dry despite eating a ketogenic diet? Dear Jimmy and Will, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Keto Talk. I’ve been eating this way for a few months and really feel great. I have always been sporty and active living at a healthy weight with a good diet. But I have suffered from multiple illnesses over the years, including orthostatic hypotension, hypermobility spectrum disorder, psoriasis, and very dry skin especially on my forearms and shins. Much to my amazement, since adopting a keto lifestyle, my balance has completely resolved after two decades of problems with this! Additionally, the psoriasis appears to be settling down. After listening to so many of your podcasts, I realize my multiple illnesses, 10 years of PTSD, and 8 concussions have caused some major inflammation in my body. So with all this context about me, here are my two concerns: Why have my periods stopped since going keto when I’ve always been regular before? Is this normal hormonal reaction and when should I expect it to restart? And why is my skin still very dry? Will it eventually clear up?

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

3. Can you explain the relationship between insulin resistance and high calcium levels in easy-to-understand language?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole! I recently figured out that I have hyperparathyroidism (hypothyroid, but hyperPARAthyroid) because I kept having high calcium levels and ending up in the hospital with AFIB. I started searching everything I could about this condition and what could be contributing to it. Now I’m wondering if my continued insulin resistance and need for insulin despite being keto for several years might somehow be related. To my surprise, a search on hyperparathyroidism and insulin resistance brought up some interesting information on this very subject! Can you explain in everyday language what the connection might be between this condition and IR and if there is reason to have hope that this might play a part in my insulin resistance improving more now that I've had the bad gland removed? I'm only a couple of weeks out of surgery but other symptoms I was experiencing have already gotten much better! I'm just really hoping this will be yet another benefit and want to better understand how high calcium levels impact insulin resistance.

Why did my voice change to sound like an old man since I started eating a ketogenic diet? Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole, You guys can count me as another person who has experienced vocal issues that have popped up since starting on the ketogenic diet. I started eating keto in July and by September I noticed my voice started sounding fuzzy like a very old man. You’ve briefly addressed this issue before stating that a common culprit is coffee consumption, but I don’t drink very much coffee and in fact a lot less of it since I switched to keto. I also don’t eat chocolate or peppermint. Any clue why I sound like the old guy in the Up movie?

1. How do you eat a vegan keto diet and will it prevent the top chronic diseases from happening?

Hi Jimmy, Will and Carrie,

Thank you for this special vegan keto episode. My husband and I have adopted a traditional ketogenic approach and have seen improvements in our body composition. I have noticed greatly improved energy, mental performance, and psychological health. In fact, last night I played two hours of volleyball and had more energy than the much younger fitness coach on my team!

My mom is 67 years old, semi-retired, and is struggling with unplanned weight gain, muscle loss, low energy, a weak immune system, slow healing, brain fog, moodiness, and mental function issues that seem to be linked to elevated blood sugar levels. We've been talking about keto for about a year, but she is afraid to try it because she is a vegetarian (that includes no dairy except butter, but she will eat eggs). She thinks there won't be anything left for her to eat if she cuts carbs. She has been eating high-carb, low-fat, and low protein. To her, a can of black beans is enough protein for one day and a teaspoon or two butter is plenty of fat. She has been trying to get omega-3 fats from flaxseed and canola oil. She is excited about hearing what you have to share on this podcast and wants to know the answers to the following questions.

- How do you prepare quick and easy vegan keto recipes?
- How do you prevent hunger while eating vegan keto?
- Where do you get your fat intake from on vegan keto?
- What omega-3 sources of fat are there to consume?
- How much protein is appropriate on a vegan keto diet and how do you get it? Tofu?
- Will supplements be necessary to get all the vitamins in my vegan keto diet?
- Dementia, heart disease, and cancer prevention are my goals with going vegan keto? Will this diet help me reach these goals?

Thank you so much for your help answering these questions for my mom!

2. What are your thoughts on protein combining, getting complete proteins, and incorporating pea protein to get a better amino acid profile on a vegan keto approach?

Hi guys,

I’m a vegan keto dieter and would love to hear Dr. Carrie’s views on essential amino acids eating this way. Protein combining is a contentious issue in the vegan world and I’ve found through my own research tracking my macronutrients that vegan keto IS limited by lysine and to some extent methionine as we mostly cut out the legumes. I’d love to hear her views on the subject of protein combining, how to get complete proteins on a vegan keto diet, and incorporating things like pea protein to help achieve a full amino acid profile for people who can’t or don’t consume soy.

Thanks!

3. What are you responses to these questions from a practicing physician?

As a practicing physician, I’d love to have the answers to the following questions regarding a vegan keto nutritional approach:

- What fats do you eat?
- What carbs do you permit?
- Are there any whole grains?
- Any beans?
- Any fasting involved?
- Supplements you take?
- Do you monitor ketosis? How?
- What exercise do you recommend when doing vegan keto?
- How many days a month do you recommend eating vegan keto? Or is it constant?
- Do you ever go off vegan keto and return to a plant-based lower-fat diet to cycle out of ketosis?
- Are there any concerns about osteoporosis from acidosis?

Thanks for your answers,

4. How do you prevent nutrient deficiencies on a vegan keto diet? What impact would incorporating an occasional vegan keto day into my regular ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy, Dr. Cole, and Dr. Diulus,

How does someone eating a vegan keto diet get their Vitamin B12? I thought Vitamin B12 could only be found in animal-based foods. And what about other nutrients that only come from animals such as dietary cholesterol? If a vegan keto diet is a sustainable way of fueling the human body over the long-term, then does that mean you HAVE to take supplements in order to remain healthy? I’m sure your body can “get by” for a while, but at what cost later on...I’m very interested in what impact implementing vegan keto days into my regular ketogenic diet.

Thank you for your help,

5. Why do some people find it difficult to lose weight on a vegan keto diet as compared with a meat-based ketogenic nutrition plan?

Hey guys,

I'm on a vegan keto group on Facebook and I often read about people gaining weight instead of losing it while eating that way. Why does it seem more difficult for some people to lose weight while eating vegan keto than meat-eating keto dieters? Is there something in the animal-based foods that contributes to easier weight loss success that is lacking in a vegan keto diet? Thanks for helping me understand this better.

1. Is it an issue that I only have one well-formed and easy-to-pass bowel movement every other day since shifting my diet to keto?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Thanks so much for talking so openly about poop! When you said that all we need is two snakes a day, all I could think of was no way! After shifting my diet to keto, I noticed the amount of food I was consuming decreased with more nutrient dense foods satisfying me. My theory is my body was actually able to use most of the food I was consuming without much waste which explains why my bowel movements went down. I simply generate less waste now, right? My estimation is that I average a poop every other day but it is well formed and passes easily so it doesn’t appear I am constipated. Should I be worried that it is so infrequent and what should I alter in my diet if my bowel habits sound problematic?

3. Why have I been experiencing regular bouts of loose stools since I’ve shifted my diet over to a ketogenic approach?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've been listening to your podcast since I began keto in June. Thank you for all the great information. In August, I began struggling with regular bouts of diarrhea on a daily basis. I can't remember the last solid stool that I had. I no longer track my macros since I'm at my goal weight. I typically have a Bulletproof coffee with MCT oil powder and butter in the morning and eat leftovers for lunch, an afternoon snack of a cheese stick or almond butter, and then dinner with meat and veggies. I've been playing around with my carbs, including adding back in healthy carbs like sweet potato and checking my blood ketones to confirm I'm always in ketosis. I drink lots of water and I'm good about getting in my electrolytes. I've even cut back on magnesium to see if that would help. It has not. My stomach isn't upset and overall I feel a lot better than I did before keto. Any clues on what I can do to decrease the diarrhea?

Thank you for your help!

4. What is causing my poop to be watery and yellow when I’m eating keto and extended fasting?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating keto with intermittent fasting since mid-April and have been slowly healing my gut from a lot of issues I was experiencing. But here is the issue: my poop is watery and yellowish in color (my liver levels were tested and it came back as optimal on the lab results). I especially see this yellowish loose stool when I fast for longer than 16 hours. My MCT oil consumption is 1 Tbs in my coffee and I did that without issues at the beginning of keto. It kicked in at the three- month mark. My food intake hasn’t changed much since going keto, but I have noticed that when I eat off plan even a little I get the runs hard and furious. One other issue that might be connected to this is I’m dealing with hair loss from thyroid issues as well as high estrogen levels. Can you help me figure this out?

Thanks so much for your podcast! God bless you guys.

5. What can I do to improve my Type 2 on the Bristol Stool chart to the more healthier Type 3 and 4?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Thank you for all you do for the keto community. In the episode where you discussed the Bristol Stool chart, you commented that any good Bristol chart would include tips to fix each type of poop. I can’t find this information, so please post this in the show notes section of your Poopcast. I seem to constantly have Type 2 poop where it is sausage-shaped and lumpy and I’ve tried various tips to getting it back to normal, including adding salt, magnesium, extra water, and upping my fiber. But nothing seems to help other than doing an extended fast. Any other tips you can give me to help improve this to the more healthy stool?

Thanks for your help,

Stephanie

 

6. Is there anything wrong with never feeling constipated? And would only pooping once a week be a problem?

Hello you guys,

If you never feel constipated, is this something to worry about? And if you aren’t pooping on a daily basis and only going once a week, why would this be a problem?

Thanks,

7. Why have my bowels come to a screeching halt since I switched over to a ketogenic diet? What can I do to get my bowel moving again?

Hi Jimmy and The Poopmaster,

I have been doing keto for about a month and ever since I started eating this way it’s like my bowels have come to a screeching halt. I consume 50-60g total carbs with around 30 grams of fiber. I drink close to a gallon of water a day and supplement with magnesium and probiotics. Is this an issue I need to be concerned about? Any ideas on how to make my bowels start back up again?

Thanks,

Dayna

Here’s what Jimmy and Will talked about in Episode 90:

 

COMMENT FROM A LISTENER responding to a question from Episode 86:

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Just listened to the podcast where the guy was having diverticulitis now that he is Keto. I guarantee if he stops eating nuts other than nut flours it will stop. Nut particles get caught in the aging bowel and start pockets of infection. Nuts are terrible for diverticulitis.

Love the show and always listen in way over here in wild Western Australia! Quite a strong keto population here.

Keep on keeping on.

– Will eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet help me counteract my weak immunity and dairy sensitivity?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a recent Keto Talk listener who appreciates your expert analysis on the ketogenic lifestyle. I am new to trying keto and admittedly have been failing at sticking with it lately due to added stress from my job. I’m hoping your podcast will motivate me so I can finally fight through these challenges and become a happy, keto-adapted person. My question for you guys is about catching the common cold. Over the past year, I have had three colds which included an acute upper respiratory infection during the winter that then turned into a sinus infection which took two months to recover from. I have always had a sensitivity to dairy and have noticed a distinct correlation between dairy consumption and my lowered immunity to colds as well as other gastrointestinal symptoms. Doctors usually just dismiss my claims and usually just give me medications for dealing with my symptoms. So with all this background in mind, will a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach help me counteract my weak immunity and tolerate dairy again? I’m so tired of the runny noses.

Thanks for your help!

1. Will the steroid I have to take for my Polymyalgia Rheumatica make me store the fat I’m consuming on my ketogenic diet? Should I do extended fasts to deal with this?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been doing well on less than 20g carbs/day consumed in a single midday meal and working out vigorously with treadmill at an incline and six-mile bike rides. All was going well and I never felt the need to test for ketones. Unfortunately, I was suddenly diagnosed with a horrible inflammatory disorder called Polymyalgia Rheumatica and the only treatment for it is the steroid prednisone which causes an insulin response that can eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes. Sadly, I have to take this steroid for the time being and I’m concerned pairing it with my low-carb, high fat diet will lead to massive weight gain in the belly due to the extra fat since my body will have a more difficult time breaking down fat stores. I’ve only been on the prednisone for a few days, but I’m trying to deal with this now before it becomes a problem. Do you have any ideas about whether my concerns are justified or not? Should I try doing longer than 24 hour fasts to help? Looking forward to your guidance.

2. Will a ketogenic diet help reduce the excessive plaque formation on my teeth?

Hey guys,

I recently started the ketogenic diet and I am doing well so far. I don’t think I’m fat-adapted yet but I know it will come. My question for you guys is about dental health. I have always had to have my teeth thoroughly and professionally cleaned every three months to deal with excessive plaque formation. I am wondering if eating keto will enable me to see a reduction in plaque formation on my teeth. Thanks in advance.

3. Are there any concerns about someone in an advanced age starting a ketogenic diet for health?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently spent two weeks with my mom who is a stubborn 76 year old Type 2 diabetic and she is determined to eat sweets now and then because she just “has to have them.” Sadly, she covers these sugary dalliances with insulin. She’s lost 15 pounds this year from simply cutting calories, but she’s still eating things like Saltines every single night. While her A1c has gone down, it’s still at 8.0. I made her listen to the Keto Clarity audiobook on a long car ride and we got through the first 10 chapters with her hanging on every word. Thanks to your book, Jimmy, she wanted to try to make a change in her diet for the first time ever. It is VERY unusual for her to be interested in anything new, so needless to say I was excited.

My question for you guys is about her advanced age. Does she need to be more careful than a younger person incorporating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic approach into her healthy lifestyle? I would hate to be the person who is recommending all of these improvements for her only to learn that it may negatively impact her health. She sees her doctor regularly, but I don’t know whether he is familiar with the keto way of eating for health improvements. She is also on blood pressure medication and a statin for high cholesterol! Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom about someone in their late 70s who may JUST BE STARTING down this path!

– Do frozen vegetables still contain a sugar water bath that would make them problematic for people eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been seeing a kinesiologist who supports eating keto. But he told me I needed to stay away from consuming frozen vegetables since he learned many years ago that they include a sugar water bath to preserve their color and taste. He said it’s not required to be listed in the ingredients and wasn’t sure if this practice was still going on. Is this something I need to be concerned about that could sabotage my ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I've been listening to Keto Talk for a few months now and have a question for you guys to address. I’ve been doing keto since July and I noticed I constantly experienced diarrhea and severe anxiety. I chalked these symptoms up to symptoms of the “keto flu” but it’s persisting even to this day. The only solution to these issues was to add back in carbs in the form of about 50g of sweet potato around my six workouts a week as a fitness competitor. Within two days of doing this, my diarrhea submitted and within a week my anxiety symptoms disappeared. Also, my hair was falling out during my time eating keto and has continued to fall out since I stopped. I loved the focus and appetite suppression that this way of eating gave me, but I can’t handle the anxiety, diarrhea, and hair loss. Do you have any idea why I’m experiencing these things while eating a ketogenic diet? When I’ve checked online, I’ve noticed other people have experienced these things too.

Thanks for you help,

Chet

1. Is a ketogenic diet an appropriate nutritional approach for someone with hepatitis B?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been listening to your podcast for three months and am excited to learn about all the great benefits of a ketogenic diet. I read a book from a doctor in Japan that suggests that people with chronic liver dysfunction should avoid a ketogenic diet because of the high-fat content. I have hepatitis B and have been taking enticavir to control the disease for the past four years. My interest in going keto is to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease which runs in my family. My question for you guys is this: Is a ketogenic nutritional approach appropriate to do for someone with hepatitis B? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

2. Why do I lose more weight when I add in carbohydrates to my ketogenic diet than if I adhered strictly to it?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating low-carb, high-fat and have noticed that when I eat more carbs such as sweet potatoes, wine, fruit, etc. that I actually lose MORE weight than when I strictly adhere to my keto plan. I don't measure my ketones and a scale and tape measure are all I own to track my progress. I don't count my carb intake, but I try to only eat carbs from dairy and vegetables on most days. So why is that when I eat extra carbs in my diet it leads to weight loss? I’m a 6’ tall female and have been fairly healthy my entire life. I workout 4-6 times a week doing running and body weight exercises. Is this something you’ve seen with others who add back in clean carbohydrates to their diet?

3. How can I tailor my ketogenic approach to properly deal with reactive hypoglycemia?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thank you for Keto Talk as it has been an amazing source of information and guidance on my keto journey. I used to deal with several hypoglycemia when I ate high-carb, low-fat and I was hoping going ketogenic this year would help with this. While the hypoglycemic episodes have become less frequent, it’s still an issue for me and preventing me from enjoying the freedom from food bondage that seemingly everyone else is experiencing. This issue is so bad I can’t even intermittent fast as I can only go a few hours between meals without feeling the effects of the reactive hypoglycemia kick in. What’s amazing is I don’t usually feel hungry when this happens, but I do get dizzy, light-headed, nauseous, and irritable.

In my research into this, I discovered the cause of the reactive hypoglycemia is low neurotransmitters (specifically GABA, dopamine, epinephrine and glutamate). I am working with a doctor to fix these underlying issues, but is there anything else I can do to my ketogenic approach to deal with the reactive hypoglycemia? I’m a 32-year old female who doesn’t use any sweeteners and dealing with low thyroid taking naturethroid and amenorrhea for the past two years. This has been a huge roadblock for me.

Thanks for your help,

Annie

AND

Hi Jimmy & Will,

I love the show and all the functional medicine insights that Dr. Will brings...I never miss an episode! I've been doing low-carb (not keto) for about a year and have noticed I get woozy after eating my evening meals that makes me very tired, unable to concentrate, and feel like I have to lie down lest I fall. My doctor says it’s reactive hypoglycemia and I’ve tried eating sugar to deal with it when it happens and it helps for a while but isn’t the solution to eliminating it. My doctor says I should eat more protein and eat every three hours to prevent this. When I added in more protein it acted very similarly to the sugar not giving me full relief. The best solution I’ve found is when I go to sleep. As for eating every three hours, I’m just not hungry enough to do that. Any insights you guys can share about this? Thanks so much and keep up the good work with the podcast.

– Why do I still crave ice cream at night after eating keto or following an extended fast? What can I do to deal with this specific craving?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I'm a big believer in both keto and fasting but I cannot stop craving ice cream after a 3+ day fast and a ketogenic meal. It only seems to happen at night and it takes me ages to get back into ketosis again after I give in to the temptation. I’ve tried everything to deal with this, including using exogenous ketones. But to no avail. I’ve already lost 42 pounds with extended fasting and a ketogenic diet and I feel trapped by these ice cream cravings. I lift heavy weights and do extensive cardio…could this hard exercise routine cause me to crave? Please help!

1. Does eating a ketogenic diet lead to abdomen and back pain as a result of high acidic urine production? Why is this happening?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Will,

Love your show! I have been experiencing a dull ache regularly in my mid to lower abdomen and back since I started keto over a year ago. Last week it started to get worse and I went to the ER to get some bloodwork, have x-rays taken, and CT scan (with contrast)—everything came back normal. The doctor’s best guess was that I have a stomach bug. This was based on deductive reasoning, which I did not buy. Today I researched this further and found this seems to be common with keto due to an acidic urine issue. Some of the remedies suggested include bicarbonate soda with Milk of Magnesia to ease the load on the kidneys. So my question for you guys is this: Do you see this in your ketogenic patients and how do you help them with it? Why is this happening?

Thanks,

Ed

2. How do I manage the carbohydrate cravings that come with bipolar disease do I can reduce my carbohydrate intake to ketogenic levels?

Hey guys,

I have a question for you regarding bipolar. I have it and the predictable carb cravings that go along with the disease. The theory is bipolar people crave carbs to stabilize their mood. I am currently under medicating for my bipolar and I’d love to find a more natural way to deal with this. I just started keto and dropped my carbohydrate intake from 180g to 90g daily. What can I do to get my daily carbohydrate intake to below 50g without the intense cravings that I’m experiencing from my disease?

In Peace,

Keith

3. How do you determine the right amount of calories to consume while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I often hear people in the ketogenic community including you guys state to make sure you "eat enough calories.” But what does that mean? I'm a 50-year old women who engages in light exercise like walking, work a desk job and sit from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and I have NO idea how many calories to eat. Some say 1,200 while others say 2,000 which I think is pretty high. I'm so confused and frustrated because I still have at least 45 pounds to lose. While I'm not planning on counting calories, I'd like a general guideline as to what is right for me. Thanks for all your info.

– What is the idea poop for someone eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating keto for about 8 weeks and reading everything I can find to educate myself on the low-carb, high-fat way of living. One subject I see the widest array of information on is what kind of stools you should have on keto. What is ideal when it comes to poop? Sinkers, floaters, or what? Please help!

– Why am I experiencing diverticulitis since adopting a ketogenic lifestyle? What can I do to best manage this while remaining keto?

Hello Jimmy and Will,

I started eating low-carb keto in April this year as a way to lose weight. I have struggled staying in ketosis, but have lost over 20 pounds so far. But my biggest problem is I’ve been having bouts of diverticulitis since making this dietary change forcing me to take Metamucil to raise my fiber intake. My doctor is recommending that I discontinue the ketogenic approach even though he was the one that encouraged me to pursue it in the first place. My C-Reactive Protein is elevated and I am now getting concerned. I’ve done my homework on a ketogenic diet reading all the books and websites and am fully convinced it’s the way to go. I hold a PhD in Biomedical Science from a US medical school and even though all I have read runs counter to what I learned in graduate school, I am fully converted and convinced of keto. Have you run into this problem before? If so, how should I proceed?

1. What impact on ketosis will there be with the complete removal of the thyroid?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been eating keto since May 2016 and I feel great! I regularly check my blood ketones and am usually in the 0.7-2.0 range. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's in 2006 and have been on 100 mcg Synthroid ever since. My thyroid levels were all in range last June but my thyroid kept getting larger. During the summer, my doctor found a nodule that ended up showing Hurthle cells. This concerned my doctor who said it’s a cancer risk and he recommended a total thyroidectomy. My surgery is schedule for next week and I’m wondering what impact this will have on my pursuit of nutritional ketosis. Will this make it more difficult for me to stay in ketosis if I no longer have a thyroid? I just want to know what I’m getting myself into so I can respond accordingly after the surgery.

Love your show and keep it up!

2. Did a ketogenic diet cause a rise in SHBG and a decrease in testosterone levels? What can I do to my keto approach to remedy this?

Hey guys,

I’m a big fan of Keto Talk and I’ve been eating this way for about a year with great results for the most part. But I noticed a couple of months after starting a ketogenic diet, my sex hormone binding globulin rose from 50 to 70 and my testosterone tanked. I’ve since run these tests several more times and they all confirm the same thing. From what I’ve read, this means my body’s ability to use any available testosterone has been hampered and many sites online blame a low-carb diet as the culprit. I need you to talk me off the ledge on this and help me figure out what is going on.

Thanks,

Zach

3. Does eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet make the urine pH more acidic? If so, should I be worried about this at all?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Will,

Yesterday, I went to see my General Practitioner to review my latest bloodwork. She knows I’ve been eating a ketogenic diet for the past nine months and was nothing but pleased with all my markers—except for one. My urine pH was 5.5 and she noted that indicates my body is a bit acidic. She said I shouldn’t worry about this since all the other numbers are perfectly fine, but she made the following statement that stopped me in my tracks: “I am not sure, but maybe it’s the ketones you are excreting that makes your urine more acidic.” What?! Is it true that being in ketosis makes your urine acidic? Should I be worried at all about this or is this of no concern at all.

Thank you for your help!

Miguel

– If the body prefers to be fueled by ketones, then why does it preferentially burn glucose over fat when both are present?

Hello you guys,

I am currently reading Keto Clarity and the biggest question I'm having about keto is this: If my body truly prefers being in a state of nutritional ketosis and runs more optimally on ketones than on glucose, then why does my body choose to preferentially choose burning sugar over fat if both are present? I have a fear that years down the line, this whole keto diet will negatively impact my health. Is that fear justified?

Thank you,

Judy

Here’s what Jimmy and Will talked about in Episode 85:

RESPONSE FROM A LISTENER:

Hey, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I listened to your discussion in Episode 81 of Keto Talk about the difficulty in getting life insurance and I wanted to let you know that there are actually carriers that will issue up to $1 million policies up to the best rating class without having to go through any blood/urine profile or physical exam. If they are healthy and between the ages of 18-54 and have not been declined or rated from a life insurance carrier before, this option is available. It could be a good fit for someone that thinks their blood levels may be "abnormal" from the insurance company perspective and want to avoid doing labs. Just an FYI for people to talk to their insurance broker about this.

Thanks,

Justin

– Why am I having painful leg cramps while on keto outside of electrolyte imbalance? How do you resolve them without supplementation?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I love this podcast, been listening since Day 1. I’ve been eating low-carb for several years and about a year and a half ago I went full-on keto. I love this way of eating and have seen a lot of benefits from it. I regularly see average ketones of 1.7 mmol/L. However, there is one drawback I experience at least once a week and upwards of four times a week. It’s the dreaded leg cramps. They are more common at night, often when I’m sleeping, but I’ve experienced them pretty much anytime throughout the day. I believe the ketogenic lifestyle truly is the ideal way to eat, but I shouldn’t be having this major and often quite painful side effect, right? I’ve heard you discuss the issue of muscle cramps in the past and how they’re typically due to dehydration and/or electrolyte depletion or imbalance. The quandary I now have is how can I really consider this ketogenic diet to be “ideal” if it leaves me with this leg cramp issue that I seemingly have to solve with supplementation. Obviously, if this way of eating was being implemented by our ancestors and it was causing them this problem, they wouldn’t have been able to solve it with supplements. I don’t have any major health issues and am not metabolically broken. But this nagging problem with my ketogenic diet makes me wonder how it can truly be the perfect way to eat? Any ideas why my electrolytes may be out-of-whack and leading to leg cramps? Or could the cramps possibly be due to something else I’m not aware of? I appreciate your help. Keep up the good work!

– STUDY: Red meat halves risk of depression

1. Why am I experiencing a sudden dip in my energy levels while eating ketogenic when energy has been great?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been following the ketogenic diet for nearly a year at the age of 75 and have experienced great energy eating grass-fed meats, fresh farm eggs, and organic vegetables. But over the past month I’ve noticed my energy has taken a dive and I thought it might be the heat of the summer. But my blood pressure also dropped so low (70/42) that I had a tough time just standing up. My doctor had me wear a heart halter and discovered I have tachycardia. Of course, now I have to see a cardiologist and I’m sure he’s gonna flip out about my numbers eating keto: Total cholesterol 294, LDL-C 198, HDL-C 85, triglycerides 55, LDL-P 2100, small LDL-P 386, VLDL 11, fasting blood glucose 90, Vitamin D 97.0, C-Reactive Protein 1.1

Do you have any suggestions for me?

2. Is there concern about a low Vitamin C intake while eating a restricted ketogenic diet like the one outlined in The Plant Paradox?

Hi, Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

A friend of mine read the book The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry and is following his dietary advice. After reviewing their recommendations (essentially no legumes, no grains, low/no fruit, no vegetables that contain seeds on the inside like cucumbers, squash, etc) it seems that she would easily fall into the ketogenic diet recommendations. She recently met with her naturopath who was leery of keto because of a supposedly low vitamin C intake. Do you have any insight into this and how a ketogenic dieter would get Vitamin C? I usually follow a Paleo/keto diet but have never considered micronutrient deficiencies as a concern because I am eating so much plant matter. Thank you in advance!

3. How do I avoid the onslaught of sugar and crappy carbage while I am in the hospital? Will they honor my request to keep the sugar and carbs out of my diet?

Hey guys,

What is a patient who eats keto supposed to do when they are in the hospital? I need to have aortic heart valve and stem replacement surgery someday and I worry about what this hospital stay will do to me. I’m a severely insulin resistant Type 2 diabetic who had an A1c of 10.4 prior to going on a ketogenic diet. Three months after going keto, that number dropped to 5.6. I’m keto for life now, but this hospital stay will be a challenge to avoid the crappy carbage they like to serve as well as the sugar-filled goop they put in the feeding tubes. I already know my healing won’t happen properly with high blood sugar and insulin levels and the hospital will simply medicate and inject me with insulin to deal with it. If I asked my hospital to avoid doing this, will they follow my wishes? I suppose I could just fast the entire time I am in the hospital, but do you have any suggestions about this? Thanks so much for helping me with this.

– Does a ketogenic diet help or hurt with anxiety issues?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I just found and subscribed to Keto Talk—thank you for the great information! I’m thinking seriously about getting into the keto thing for myself, but I am doing my homework first. I am a 61-year-old carb addicted female who needs to lose at least 50 pounds. I was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic and I want to get myself back to feeling happy and well again. My question for you guys revolves around how keto helps with anxiety issues. Is there any medical, scientific, or other data with ketogenic diets and anxiety? Or does it make anxiety worse (ugh…I hope not)?

Thank you again!

– Does a high-fat diet lead to an increase in inflammation levels that I should be concerned about?

Hey guys!

I feel like I’ve had an increase in inflammation ever since I started on the keto diet in June 2017. I look more fat every day and I read that a high-fat diet increases endotoxins and increases gut permeability as well which leads to histamine production. But it’s the rise in one type of bacteria that produces an inflammation response that has me most concerned about a ketogenic diet. Should I be? Why or why not? Thanks in advance for your help with my question.

1. Why am I experiencing prolonged diarrhea since adopting a ketogenic diet? Is there a way to remedy this?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Is there a keto-friendly remedy for diarrhea? I don't know if it's stress-related or bacterial, but I’ve had it for about a month which forced me to become carbolitic again! I’m eating rice, bread, oatmeal and as you can probably guess I'm hungry most of the time now. I throw in some fatty protein, too, but practically nothing green. Roughage seems to irritate my sensitive intestinal tract. But this diarrhea lasted for five weeks while eating keto and I was hoping it would just work itself out. As far as I know I’m not sick with a stomach bug or anything, but my tummy feels uncomfortable as the non-carby food is being digested. I’ve been popping probiotics like candy every single day, so I don’t know what could be going on. Please help.

2. Why am I having constant hunger while eating a ketogenic diet with adequate calories and dietary fat?

Hey guys, love your podcast! I'm an ER doc and 90% of what I see in the ER is 100 percent preventable through nutrition and other lifestyle modifications. My whole ER department is on the fasting bandwagon and many are LCHF! I’ve been eating this way for five years and incorporate regular periods of intermittent fasting of 16-20 daily. I even ran in the Boston marathon with just water. So surely I’m fat-adapted. I recently switched over to keto for cancer and dementia prevention but now I have a problem—I’m CONSTANTLY hungry. I consume well over my usual 2500 calories which includes 200g healthy fats. I’m doing yoga and keep my net carbs under 20g daily. I’m 36 years old and have a normal BMI. But this hunger is excruciating and nothing seems to satisfy it. Will this eventually normalize? What’s odd is when I simply ate low-carb, high-fat that wasn’t ketogenic, I never felt this kind of hunger. Weird. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

3. How does an older person who requires more protein in their diet to prevent muscle loss eat a ketogenic diet that moderates protein?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a sedentary 70-year old man and I’ve read that older people need to be eating more protein (along with strength training) in order to counter any age-related muscle loss. But since going keto requires a more moderate protein intake, how can these be done?

Thanks for all your good work.

- Can you explain the process of how fat cells work and what exactly a ketogenic diet does to improve sick ones?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will Cole,

I love Keto Talk and am grateful for all that you do! I was wondering if you guys could explain how fat cells work. For example, when someone gains weight are they getting new fat cells or are the existing ones just getting bigger? Also, I've heard you talk about sick fat cells that get better when people adopt a ketogenic diet, but can you go into more detail about how exactly that works? And finally, if someone's fat cells are all healthy, will they then be at their optimal weight or will other factors still be at play?

Thanks again for all of your awesome work,

Michele

– Why did I experience soft tissue increase in my armpits once I adopted a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been listening to Keto Talk and eating keto for the past 6 months and have lost 22 pounds so far. My blood work looks great other than my DO adding progesterone and estrogen since I am starting menopause. A strange thing happened when I started keto, though, that I’d like your thoughts about. I have noticed a large soft tissue increase in one armpit and a small one in the other. A mammogram shows just added tissue and no cancer. So, will this go away as I continue to lose weight? I am at 36% body fat so I have a ways to go, but I want to wear a sleeveless shirt again and don’t want to have surgery for this. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.

God bless!

1. Did the high-fat intake on my ketogenic diet lead to the development of gallstones?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Love your show and I wanted to get your take on something that happened to me recently. I was admitted to the ER for severe pain in my abdomen and it was gallstones. They pushed hard for me to have surgery, but I chose not to since there was no infection. I’m 56, 6 feet tall, and 169 pounds while in pretty fit shape. I’ve been eating keto with periods of intermittent fasting along with Bulletproof Coffee for the past three years. Is it possible these gallstones are a result of the saturated fat and cholesterol I’m consuming? If so, then how can I return to my beloved Bulletproof Coffee, coconut oil on my veggies, grass-fed meats, and other high-quality fats?

I was really shocked that this happened as I felt I had at last found the diet that was right for me. Many thanks for any insights you might have about why this happened.

2. Should I be concerned about my “grossly lipemic” blood work that resulted from eating ketogenic with intermittent fasting?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’ve been eating 70/25/5 keto for nearly a year with great success so far losing 30 pounds. I’m an African American, 6'1", 64 years old, and currently 195 pounds with approximately 20% body fat. I’ve also added in intermittent fasting of 16/8 on most days. I recently had blood work that showed I am "grossly lipemic.” As a result of this, there was no cholesterol recorded. EVERYTHING else was good. So, should I be concerned?

Thanks, and please keep up the great work. P.S. I have converted my wife to keto from Weight Watchers. Big win!

3. Since going keto, why am I have dizzy spells with normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels?

Hey guys,

I love your podcast and am working my way through your backlist. I’m 62 and have been eating ketogenic since May. I’ve lost over 40 pounds with about 10-20 more pounds to go. I’m eating low-carb, high-fat and have noticed my blood glucose has come down significantly since eating this way along with an average blood ketone level of 1.6. I was taking blood pressure medication prior to going keto and I’ve come off of it now that BP has normalized with the diet. I’ve noticed that sometimes I get dizzy while standing or doing light work. When I’ve tested my blood pressure and blood glucose after this has happened, they were normal at 120/83 and 82 respectively. I take a potassium and a magnesium pill every day along with L-Thyroxine for my thyroid and 3 Lyrica per day for nerve pain in my foot.

Do you have any idea what may be causing these dizzy spells? Other than this, I feel fine and am having no problem staying on my diet. Thank you very much for your help!

– Why does eating keto and fasting lead to offensive, bad breath and what can you do about it?

Dear Mr. Moore and Dr. Cole,

I've been reading The Complete Guide to Fasting that I got from my local library as I have been interested in this subject to manage my rheumatoid arthritis. My question is about keto breath that tends to happen when your body burns ketones. Could you please address this issue and what to do about it? I don't like the thought of having offensive, bad breath if I decide to fast as an adjunct to eating keto.

Thanks in advance for your help.

– Why would my blood glucose levels go extremely high after beginning on a well-formulated ketogenic diet? Is it possible keto actually caused this to happen?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I’m having a reaction to the keto diet that I think you may find interesting and can chime in with a few thoughts for me about it. Although I am experiencing quite a few benefits eating this way, it appears the ketogenic approach just isn’t working for my blood glucose levels. I've been eating keto for 5 weeks averaging around 26g total carbs each day, 70g protein, and 220g fat. This is tracked closely by a dietitian and my blood ketones which are measured by a finger prick are consistently above .5 mmol and usually averages around 1. However, my fasting blood glucose hovers around 200 and seems to be steadily increasing.

Here's the thing: I’m not diabetic. My fasting blood glucose before keto was 93 and my A1c was 5.5. Pre-keto, while I was eating just low carb with about 70-100g/day of carbohydrates, my insulin levels were low at 1.2. It's possible that going keto has exposed an underlying problem, but it seems to me that it's also possible that keto caused the problem I’m now having with my blood sugar levels and that the diet just doesn't work for me. I'm really trying to figure out which one of these it is.

Any assistance you can give about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for this podcast and keep up the great work!

David

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I am having with my morning fasted blood sugar readings in the 120s and 130s and sometimes as high as in the 180s. Two weeks ago, I was put on 1500mg of Metformin and a ketogenic diet with regular periods of fasting for 18 hours a day. So far I’ve lost 14 pounds, but this blood sugar thing is frustrating for me. I hope you have some answers for me.

Thank you,

From a very stressed out Tony

1. Why am I experiencing an increased amount of gas since adopting a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating ketogenic for about three months and while I feel pretty good overall, I have encountered a few issues that seem to be sticking around. I have been experiencing dry skin, which is very unusual in the middle of a humid summer in upstate New York. I have also been having some digestive issues that show up as gas. I do eat very healthy with high quality fats, including grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs, unrefined coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, avocados, coconut milk, coconut butter, and some nuts and seeds. But I know I am experiencing more gas than I should and I'm not sure what may be causing this. I don't eat any grains, dairy, or legumes, but something is disturbing my digestion in the worst way. Also, I’ve noticed my acne has been consistently been pretty bad as well since going keto. I would greatly appreciate any insights you can give me into these issues. Thanks for your help!

2. What can I do about the unrelenting constipation I am feeling while on a ketogenic diet?

Hey guys,

I’ve been eating low-carb, then keto going on five years now and I love it. But biggest side effect that I’ve experienced is unrelenting constipation. When I ate the SAD diet, I was regular everyday. But as soon as I go low-carb/keto, it's a big problem. I consume avocados, greens, and/or broccoli everyday. Additionally, I eat up to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and it doesn't seem to help at all. A famous ketogenic doctor told me to take milk of magnesia and I tried up to 3-4 teaspoons at night and still not regular. Yes, I definitely go more often when I take that, but I don’t want to have to take a whole bottle every single week. I drink plenty of water with up to 3 teaspoons of sea salt in it. I also supplement with magnesium malate since the citrate version creates a more laxative effect. So it doesn’t appear that I'm dehydrated or lacking electrolytes. The only thing I can think of that it could possibly be is stress. I'm not overly stressed but do have my moments. Please help me figure out how to get this constipation under control while eating keto.

Thank you,

3. What is it about the low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet that improves skin health so much?

Dear Jimmy & Dr. Will,

First of all, welcome to Dr. Will who I think brings a fresh new perspective that I like to Keto Talk. On his first episode, Will mentioned as an aside that eating keto can be very good for the skin. This resonated with me because I have seen that happening in my own ketogenic journey. I used to experience super dry skin prior to eating keto using expensive moisturizers and even those didn’t help me. After 3-4 months of eating keto, I noticed my skin was super moist without any moisturizers…even when I am getting lots of sun at the beach. Amazing! So my question for you guys is this: Why is a ketogenic diet so beneficial for the skin?

Thank you for answering my question,

Miguel

- Why am I never feeling any hunger on keto? What’s the mechanism going on inside that body that it keeping me so satiated all the time.

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been listening to your podcasts for many years, Jimmy, but I have never heard the answer to the following question—Why do I never feel any hunger while eating keto? I will feel a little dizzy sometimes and even have difficulty thinking from time to time, but never any hunger. I am reading your book Keto Clarity to learn more of the nuances of nutritional ketosis and to help me understand what is going on in my body better. This lack of hunger thing is driving me crazy trying to figure it out.

Keep up the good work. You are making a difference in this world and for that, I thank you.

– How does someone eating a ketogenic diet with elevated LDL-C and total cholesterol get good life insurance? Is there a company that looks at the relevant numbers?

Hey guys,

I’ve enjoyed listening to you and your new co-host Dr. Cole on Keto Talk the past couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more from you two! I have a quick question for you guys to address that I think impacts a lot of us Ketonians: Is there a life insurance company that understands the new way to look at lipid panels and related lab markers that give more credence to things like HDL, triglycerides, hsCRP, lower small LDL-P, lower ApoB, and more? It seems most of these companies prevent an otherwise healthy person from obtaining proper levels of life insurance unless their LDL-C and total cholesterol are in line with conventional thinking which we know is an incomplete picture. Thanks for addressing this important topic!

1. Can the fat you eat on a ketogenic diet make hot flashes and swelling worse just like carbs do?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’m a regular listener to Keto Talk and love what you are doing here. My question for you guys is about whether the fat I’m eating on my ketogenic diet is making my hot flashes worse and my fingers swell. I’m 57 years old, weigh 130 pounds, and am addicted to sugar. But when I replace sugar with fat, all of these things seem to happen in my health. Is this normal? Maybe I need to cut my fat and red meat consumption and eat more vegetables. Do you guys think this is a good idea?

Thanks so much,

Rainny

2. Is eating more vegetables on my ketogenic diet the answer to my adrenal fatigue that seems to be halting my weight loss progress?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been on a ketogenic lifestyle since May and have not lost a single pound. I keep my carbs below 20g and went to see a ketogenic-friendly physician since I thought I was perhaps eating too much fat. In doing more research into what I might be dealing with, I suspected adrenal fatigue that has led to exhaustion and lab tests have confirmed this to be true. My keto doctor requires me to eat a lot more vegetables in my diet, but now I’m hungry again despite showing 1.0 mmol in my blood ketones. I’m a bit frustrated right now about what’s going on with me because I should be losing weight, right? Thanks for helping to point me in the right direction.

3. What natural pain remedies can be used by Ketonians who would rather not take medications?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been experiencing an increase in pain in my shoulders, elbows, and knees since I went keto two months ago. I’m a 62-year old male who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism four years ago by an allopathic doctor and prescribed Synthroid. I never liked the side effects of that medication, so I switched over to iodine supplements to go more natural in my treatment of this. Keto has given me great energy, no more food cravings, and has zapped out my hunger allowing me to intermittent fast for 16 hours daily. I lost 45 pounds on a traditional diet before going ketogenic and have lost another 30 pounds in the two months I’ve been keto. My goal is another 100 pounds, but I need something natural to give me pain relief while I’m on this journey.

Shalom,

George

– Is it normal to be sick of the dietary fat you consume on a ketogenic diet by day four of eating this way?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if it is normal to get sick of eating dietary fat after three days of eating keto. I absolutely love it for the first three days eating high-fat foods, but then something happens by day four when I can’t even think of eating another ketogenic meal. Is this normal and will I get over this? I really want to do this diet because of all of the health benefits and maybe lose a few pounds. But I need to know if I just need to push through the feeling I’m getting and get to the point where I will enjoy keto meals on a regular basis.

Thank you for your help,

– Why are blood glucose and weight elevated in a Type 2 diabetic despite eating ketogenic and taking high-dose Metformin?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I love your podcast - it's the perfect mix of nerdy science in an easy-to-understand format and I’m excited about the addition of Dr. Will Cole who maybe can help me understand something that’s happening to me right now. I started keto in October last year and I am a Type 2 diabetic who let my diabetes and weight become out of control due to uncontrolled stress the two previous years. With the exception of a few vacations where I've cheated, I've been strictly keto otherwise eating less than 20g of carbs a day. I feel great eating this way, but I’m very slowly losing weight and my blood glucose numbers just aren't normalizing—they’re averaging 200-225 in fasted readings even with taking 1500mg of extended release Metformin. I’m determined to get my diabetes under control without insulin and I’m under the care of a ketogenic-friendly physician who says it takes patience for the blood sugar levels to come down. I'm sure it does, but I'm hoping maybe you guys can explain why it takes so long for blood sugar and weight to come down as a Type 2 diabetic when it seems like I’m not getting any results yet.

Thank you for your help!

1. Would doing a protein sparing modified fast that is low-carb, but also very low in fat and calories bring more effective ketosis than a traditional keto diet?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I recently purchased Keto Clarity and read it with a vengeance. Thank you so much for your insights, experience and expertise included in that book, Jimmy. I now feel like I have a great grasp on nutritional ketosis and how it can benefit the body. I've recently been through a trying period with my health and I ended up losing 50 pounds very rapidly due to not eating and malnutrition followed by gaining back 90 pounds when I was "better" again. I recently visited an endocrinologist to help me lose about half my body weight and I was excited when I left the appointment because she told me that I would be on a ketogenic diet! A friend suggested your book, so I purchased it and read it right away. However, after meeting with the dietitian through her office, I found out that I was put on what’s called a protein sparing modified fast. The plan is very limiting allowing only about 600 calories a day. It is also very low in fat and only includes 11 ounces of protein daily.

So, after much thought and my sad attempt at researching this online, I thought I would contact you to ask this important question: Does limiting the amount of food you eat on a plan like this equal what a bariatric surgery patient would consume put the body into a more effective state of ketosis than following a more traditional ketogenic diet as described in your book?

I truly appreciate any thoughts you may have on this.

Sincerely,

Daniella

2. Is it possible that eating the higher amounts of protein required by the GAPS diet is causing me to plateau and even gain weight?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I recently began working with a nutritional therapy practitioner and have been practicing the GAPS diet for about a week now to begin healing my gut and digestive system as well as to detoxify. Before this diet, I was following a ketogenic approach along with intermittent fasting for 16:8 naturally and then practicing 42-hour fasts three times a week and losing weight fairly easily. Now my weight has gone up some and plateaued. My NTP has asked me to stop fasting since it might deprive my body of the nutrients it needs to heal.

At the first stage of the elimination portion of the GAPS diet, you eat animal meat boiled in bone broth with specifically approved vegetables like squash, broccoli, onion or cauliflower that are also boiled in bone broth. I am becoming convinced my plateau has to do with the higher amount of protein in this approach. I am only able to add animal fat to the stews and soups that are GAPS-approved and realize it's not the larger amount of fat I was eating on keto. So it seems I’m now eating a high-protein, moderate fat, low-carb diet. Do you have any insight whether or not it’s the protein that is stalling my weight loss and even gaining weight again?

Appreciate you guys,

Ashley

3. Is it possible the ketogenic diet could be masking the symptoms of perimenopause? Is that why I’m not losing weight? What can be done to remedy this?

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Can eating a ketogentic diet mask the symptoms of perimenopause? I have been eating a ketogenic diet for over a year after starting my nutritional health journey with a primal/Paleo diet. The pounds on the scale simply are not moving. My doctor had said according to my health markers that there is nothing wrong with my metabolism. My thyroid and adrenals were good and my A1C is 5.0 showing my blood sugar to be well-controlled. According to my doctor, my sex hormone levels indicate I am still fertile at the age of 46. When I test blood ketones, I am .5 or higher and even seeing as high as 2.2 mmol. Prior to eating clean, my cycles were becoming irregular, but after 2 1/2 years of eating well my cycles are now back on track. I am having cyclical symptoms of fatigue, moodiness, and joint pain that is not in correlation with my cycle. It's seems to be happening every 3-4 months and I am no long losing inches while gaining scale weight. Could these symptoms be perimenopausal even with a regular cycle? I am frustrated I'm not losing weight, but am grateful my health seems to be right on track.

Thank you for all you do for the keto community. And thank you for answering my question.

- Can my 11-year old granddaughter eat keto as long as she gets enough protein in her diet? How can we help eliminate her carbohydrate cravings?

Hey guys,

My granddaughter is a healthy 11-year old who is a bone fide carb junkie. She simply cannot resist eating carbage of all kinds. Both of her parents have been keto since March and I wonder if my granddaughter could eat this way as well so long as she gets enough protein. I’m a registered nurse and it seems to be safe for her to do to help get her extra weight under control. My real concern is with her carbohydrate cravings and whether they will turn into an eating disorder. We’ve already caught her hiding candy and cookies so she can eat them later and then she doesn’t eat the real food she is served at meal times. Please help advise me because I want to help my granddaughter ward off future health problems now.

Thank you for your assistance.

– Could bioidentical hormone therapy prevent weight loss for people who are eating a ketogenic diet?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of Keto Talk and want to welcome Dr. Will Cole to the show. Since he’s got a lot of patient experience regarding hormonal issues, maybe Dr. Cole can help me understand why I’m not as successful at losing weight on my ketogenic diet as I had hoped to be. I am currently taking bioidentical hormones and wonder if that could be part of my struggle with weight loss. I did Atkins four years ago and it worked fine for me then. But it’s so much harder for me this time around. Can you guys help me understand whether these hormones I am taking are sabotaging my efforts?

 

Thanks for your response.

1. Can you diagnose a low thyroid function on a TSH number alone? How will keto help to fix the issues that concern my doctor?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

I’m a big fan of all your books and podcasts, Jimmy, and I've been a Keto Talk listener since the very beginning. I’m excited to hear what Dr. Cole has to add to an already amazing show. I went to see a new doctor last week for a physical and she has all her new patients do some bloodwork. When the results came in (see them below), her office called me to inform me that my total cholesterol and LDL-C are way too high (230 and 153 respectively). I asked why these numbers mattered when my HDL and triglycerides are 62 and 73 respectively thanks to eating a ketogenic diet and I was told my "bad" cholesterol was too high. I wasn’t worried about it because I’d read Cholesterol Clarity and knew what really mattered.

 

When I went to see my doctor in the office, she wrote me a prescription for Levothyroxine because she says my thyroid level is too low and that it's driving up my total cholesterol and liver enzymes. When I asked whether a higher insulin level could cause this, she insisted that I couldn’t possibly have high insulin with my normal HbA1c. She wouldn’t run the fasting insulin nor the particle size cholesterol test that I requested. And I also noticed she only tested TSH, which does seem high. But I don't know if that means my thyroid is low or not. So my question for you guys is this: Is it possible that the thyroid function is low simply based on a high TSH level? Does a ketogenic diet help with this or do I need to do other things to bring this into line so my cholesterol and liver enzymes can normalize?

 

Thanks and keep up the good work you guys are doing!

2. Can a ketogenic diet help improve psoriasis? And what other things should I be doing to help with this autoimmune condition?

In your experience, what impact does the ketogenic diet have on an autoimmune disease such as psoriasis? Are there other things I need to be doing in addition to dietary changes to help improve this?

3. What role does a ketogenic diet plan in helping to treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and candida?

 

Hi Jimmy and Will,

 

I'm interested in learning more more about the role of ketogenic diets to help treat SIBO and candida. I have both of these conditions and I am also breastfeeding! Most of the information I can find about this seems to target pregnancy with breastfeeding lumped into that group. I would really like to try keto but all I have read is mixed information about ketones feeding bacteria and yeast but then so do carbs. It’s so confusing! Any information you have on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks so much,

– Can taking a cortisol-lowering supplement during your period offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss? Or is the higher cortisol serving a purpose?

 

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

 

My boyfriend and I listen to your podcast together and it has helped convince me that this is the lifestyle for us to follow. So thank you. After going through some significant health issues, including cervical cancer at the age of 28, I have struggled getting my hormones under control. I am perfectly healthy now except for the effects of dramatically surging hormones much more intensely than other women do.

 

I’ve learned from your show that women are less likely to be in ketosis during their period cycle because of an increase in cortisol levels which can then lead to a stall in weight loss. But my question for you guys is this: Would taking a cortisol-lowering supplement offset the negative effects on ketosis and weight loss during that time of the month for menstruating women? Or does that higher cortisol level serve a purpose in our body and health? I get so stressed with hunger and cravings when my period hits and I’m wondering what a ketogenic woman can do to deal with this each month during her cycle.

 

Thanks again for the great show and the awesome work that you do!

 

Kristi

- Can a ketogenic diet help someone who has had their lap band taken out? What can be done to normalize the body’s hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I just came across your Keto Talk podcast and thought I would reach out to you for advice about the lap band I had removed due to erosion (hole in the stomach). I was very sad to let go of it. In my research on the effects of the lap band had on my body and eating so very little for so long, I suspect that it has taken a toll on my body and I’m now struggling to lose weight. When I consulted a medical weight loss clinic, they put me on a 1200 calorie, 120g carb diet and I gained weight in the two weeks I did it. That’s what led me to the ketogenic diet to help stave off the weight gain. Do you have any clinical experience or know about any research that looks at the use of keto for former lap banders looking for a way to keep their weight under control? I had my hormones tested and my testosterone came back at zero. I suspect having the lap band decreased my T levels from the stress it put my body through. So if the lap band changed my body’s hormone levels, what else has it changed? Is that why I’m struggling to lose weight like everyone else can? How do I figure out what I need to do since we are not all the same.

Thanks so much for your help!

1. Why would blood sugar levels go up when taking long lasting insulin while eating keto?

Hey guys,

I am currently in the process of reading Keto Clarity and have begun the switch over to burning fat instead of sugar. I am a Type 2 diabetic and inject insulin four times a day. Recently I went on a road trip and forgot to bring my insulin. When I got back home, I checked my blood sugar and saw the best reading I have had in over six months. But here’s where it gets weird—when I took my long lasting insulin, the next day my glucose numbers were higher again. Why in the world would my blood sugar go up when taking insulin while eating a ketogenic diet? Any insights you have on this would be awesome.

2. Could the joint pain in my knees be brought on simply by being in a state of nutritional ketosis?

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

I am a big fan of your podcast and have been keto for six months losing around 60 pounds. I'm now in the best shape of my life at the age of 30 and feel great with lots of energy and I actually love working out now. However, I’ve noticed I’m dealing with a lot more joint pain now than I did before eating ketogenic, especially in my knees. I thought things would improve now that I’ve taken off some extra weight. I am definitely in ketosis when I test for them and I’m trying to avoid what my mother just went through with a double knee replacement. I feel pain in the joints but don’t have any noticeable inflammation. Is being in ketosis causing this to happen?

Thank you so much for your help.

3. Does a ketogenic diet lead to abnormally high liver function test results? Is my liver overstressed by having to metabolize the extra dietary fat?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

A few years back, I had abnormally high liver function test results and my primary care physician was concerned that my numbers got worse because of keto. My AST and ALT were around 100 and they’re supposed to be no higher than 37. At the time she advised me to start eating more carbs and all my numbers that were bad came within the normal range. I started keto and fasting again in 2016 and lost 64 pounds after my third pregnancy. I’m concerned when I go back to see my doctor next month that my liver tests will be bad again. I’m hypothyroid, but I don’t have any known liver or gallbladder issues. Is it possible my liver was overstressed by having to metabolize the extra fat in my ketogenic diet? If so, then does that mean keto isn’t right for me? I sure hope not because I feel so fantastic in ketosis.

Thanks for any insight about this and thank you for all you both do!

– Should I strive to have higher levels of blood ketones if I seem to be thriving in my mental clarity and energy when I am barely in ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’ve been doing a ketogenic diet for three months as a physically active 27-year old man with 10% body fat. I’ve noticed that I feel so much better when I’m barely in ketosis at around 0.5 mmol—that’s my sweet spot where I have better mental clarity and energy. Anytime I’ve tried pushing blood ketones up by moderating protein more, my ketones rise to 2.0-5.0 mmol, but I don’t feel quite the same mental benefits as I do in the lower level of ketosis. So my question for you guys is this—should I strive for higher ketones and hope these kick in at some point to give me the benefits I desire or should I listen to my body and return to the lower level where I seem to thrive?

By the way, you’ll find it interesting that I seem to tolerate more carbohydrates in my diet than more protein. I’ve been able to eat as much as 50g carbs (10% of my caloric intake) without every impacting my ketosis levels while eating just 2% more protein in my diet will kick me out of ketosis completely. Fascinating! I don’t take any supplements and don’t use any sweeteners at all. I’ve yet to find anyone else dealing with this issue, so I’d love to hear an explanation of what might be going on.

Thanks in advance!

Jørgen

– Thoughts on Jimmy wearing a Freestyle Libre flash glucose monitor for the past week with curious results (blood sugar going down when eating ketogenic meals, the impact stress has played on the readings, Mexican food experiment and the recovery from that)

 

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

 

Someone posted this article where they ask if sugar feeds cancer. The "expert" claims that it’s not sugar that’s responsible for the growth of cancer cells but rather insulin. They conclude from this that we should not be avoiding carbs. Maybe it’s just me but isn't this "expert" just shooting themselves in the foot by drawing this conclusion? If insulin is supposed to be the culprit in causing cancer and carbohydrates are the primary instigator in these raised insulin levels, then wouldn't lowering carb intake then be a wise strategy decrease insulin? Ummm, hello? The conclusions of this "expert" are really poorly thought out and even contradictory. This type of thinking completely boggles my mind.

– Why do some Ketonians seem to experience a lump in their throats when they start eating keto?

 

Hello Jimmy and Adam,

 

I've been keto for about 6 weeks after eating Paleo for eight years. My wife and I are measuring our blood glucose and blood ketones every morning and keeping track of it. I will occasionally experience a lump in my throat since starting keto and my Google searches about this show a lot of theories about what it is, including acid reflux. We eat a very clean low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet with no processed foods and plenty of fresh leafy greens, grass-fed meats, butter, coconut oil, avocado, cheese, and more. Do you know what might be causing this because it seems to be a common problem reported by low-carb/ketogenic dieters.

 

Love your show!

1. Why would someone eating ketogenic experience very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux? What can be done to resolve this issue?

 

Jimmy and Adam,

 

I love your podcast and have been on keto for six months. I am now inspired to help others start their own keto journey. Unfortunately, one of the people I’ve tried to help is a close friend who started keto about a month after I did and she has been experiencing some very intense stomach pain and unbearable acid reflux. Her doctor ran all the GI test and it all came back clear. The only solutions mainstream medicine has to offer is pills, pills, and more pills. She did suffer from bulimia for seven years and this is likely where her problem started. Do you have any suggestions on what she should do to resolve this? I’m guessing it’s a gut bacteria/enzyme issue and she’s been taking apple cider vinegar and cold water to no available so far.

 

Thanks for al the info you are puting out!

2. For someone who is skinny fat, how do get body fat percentage into a healthy range without getting too skinny?

 

Hello Jimmy and Doc Nally,

 

I found your podcast three weeks ago and am finding it very informative in my ketogenic journey. I’m 61 years old and could be considered skinny fat. I’ve been ketogenic for 18 months and got down to 115 pounds, but still with a body fat of 30%. I ordered a Ketonix to test breath ketones, but urine ketone testing strips show I’m in ketosis. So my question for you guys is this: Should I be concerned if I continue to lose scale weight but the body fat percentage is not getting into a healthy range?My rheumatologist is concerned that I’m losing too much weight and wonders if I'm eating enough. How do I convince my doctors that I'm doing okay? Also what body fat percentage should I be shooting for? Thanks so much! My husband and I have learned so much from you and he’s down 25 pounds while getting off his blood pressure medications. We will never go back to the SAD diet ever again.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Mary

3. Can a ketogenic diet help to heal some very painful hemorrhoids?

 

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

 

I'm a big fan of your podcast and it’s been a fabulous resource for my keto journey this past year as it has healed my eczema and IBS completely. My question for you is about my husband who is experiencing some very painful hemorrhoids. He eats what he thinks are “healthy choices,” works out six days a week, doesn’t smoke, and drinks on occasion. He also had gallbladder surgery a couple of years ago. I've been trying to get him on board with keto in the hopes it could give him some relief from the hemorrhoid pain. Can a ketogenic diet help him with this? Your input is greatly appreciated!

– Is a lowering of the basal metabolic rate (BMR) from eating a ketogenic diet actually beneficial to longevity? Are “normal” BMR levels too high based on SAD dieters?

 

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

 

I love the inspiration and support I receive from Keto Talk. Prior to going keto, a dietitian had me on a weight loss diet that included low-fat and calorie-counting. Predictably, I was constantly hungry despite losing weight eating that way. But I couldn’t maintain it and the regain was rapid. The dietitian told me that my metabolism had slowed down meaning I needed to eat less and less calories to start losing weight again. Dr. Nally has said many times that eating too few calories will lower your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and the benefits that come from the restriction of carbohydrates in the context of a well-formulated ketogenic diet. This is probably a much more complex system than we even know, but I wonder if what we regard as a “normal” BMR is different for Ketonians vs. SAD dieters since the BMR test ranges is based on mostly people eating non-keto. This might sound controversial, but what if the ketogenic diet lowers BMR and that helps improve longevity? Could it be that lowering BMR below what is considered “normal” is actually the real normal range for healthy living? I hope this question provokes a potential knowledge spill.

 

Kind regards,

 

Frank in Brisbane, Australia

- Does replenishing your glycogen stores fully kick you out of ketosis? Can you produce ketone bodies and store boy fat simultaneously?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I love your podcast and have read your books! I've been keto since January 2016 and IF regularly with some longer fasts, so I'm definitely fat adapted. I eat PLENTY of fat and I love it! I have a question today about glycogen stores and corresponding ketone readings. From what I understand, if I overdo it and eat too many carbs or too much protein or both, my glycogen stores will eventually fill up and then the leftover glucose from the meal will be converted to fat for storage. I'm wondering if filling my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage will knock me out of ketosis? In other words, as long as I'm registering a reading within the nutritional ketosis range of 0.5-3.0 mmol on my blood ketone meter, is it safe to assume that I didn't load up my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage? Is it even physiologically possible to both burn fat for fuel and producing ketones while also storing fat at the same time?

Thanks so much for all that you do, and thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

– STUDY: The cholesterol and calorie hypotheses are both dead — it is time to focus on the real culprit: insulin resistance

1. Is there something about the ketogenic diet that causes vivid dreams that lead to nightmares?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

Reading Keto Clarity last year made me realize that the keto life is the key to life, so thank you! I have question I’d love your help with that I haven’t seen a good answer to anywhere online. Do you experience what I’ll describe as “keto dreams?” Some people have shared that since eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet, they struggle more with nightmares. I had stress-induced insomnia for 10 years prior to going keto, but now that I’m sleeping better my sleep is plagued by extremely vivid dreams that oftentimes lead to nightmares. Am I suffering from some sort of deficiency in my diet for this to be happening now? Or is my body just working through the stress of bad sleep for more than a decade?

Thank you very much for your help,

Jezabel

2. Is chicken fat and bacon a worse meat option while eating keto because of their polyunsaturated fat content? Or does it even matter?

Hi Jimmy and the Doc,

I've been eating low-carb, ketogenic since December 2014. I check my blood glucose and blood ketones daily. One of the pleasures of eating keto is I get to enjoy cooking and eating real foods like pasture raised chicken and making bone broth. However, I do have a concern about the chicken fat containing linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). I learned more about these reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz where she describes PUFAs as obesegenic because they store more fat in a low insulin environment while increasing insulin resistance outside the fat cells. Even Dr. Nally’s beloved bacon contains large amounts of these PUFAs as well. Did that wake you up Doc? Beef fat, lamb fat, and butter are all low in PUFAs. So my question for you guys is this: Does the choice of meat type with better fat profiles when you are eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat matter in terms of dealing with body fat loss goals?

I’ll be listening for your reply on the show,

3. Is there a keto-friendly allergy medication or remedy that doesn’t contain unwanted sugars and other culprit ingredients?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

Thanks for all you do in spreading the word about the multiple benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle through your podcast. I suffer from a lot of allergies, especially grass and ragweed pollen. Over the years I've experimented with many antihistamines and their efficacies for me. Of course, Benadryl is the best, but has the side effect of severe drowsiness. Through experimentation I've found what works best for me is the CVS brand of 12-hour allergy product where the active ingredient is Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Now that I'm keto, it seems prudent to reexamine all the medications and supplements I take in terms of their compatibility with this way of eating.

In my allergy medication that I like, here's the list of inactive ingredients in this product: Calcium Sulfate, Carnauba Wax, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Confectioner's Sugar, D&C Yellow 10, Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue 2/Indigo Carmine Aluminum Lake, FD&C Yellow 6, Gelatin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Methacrylic Acid Copolymer, Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Pharmaceutical Ink, Polysorbate 80, Povidone, Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sucrose, Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Triethyl Citrate.

Ragweed season is fast approaching, and I will need an antihistamine product that will actually work—otherwise I will be absolutely miserable. I'm willing to take Benedryl every 4 hours if needed, but I was wondering if there is a long-acting antihistamine you advise your highly insulin resistant patients to take which will have minimum insulin and glucose response. I’d like to avoid the confectioner’s sugar, sucrose, and other suspect ingredients in that CVS brand if possible. This seems like an issue that might affect a lot of your listeners. Thanks for all you do in reaching and teaching so many about the ketogenic lifestyle!

- What’s the best way to determine what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for my ketogenic diet?

Hi, Jimmy and The Doc!

Thank you for writing Keto Clarity and doing the Keto Talk podcast sharing your wisdom about the ketogenic lifestyle. I’ve been keto since January 2017 and have lost 15 pounds. While I eat low-carb, high-fat, I’m still struggling about how to figure out exactly how many carbohydrates, how much protein, and how much fat to eat. I follow a keto group on Facebook that gives me inspiration, but they don’t believe excess protein gets converted into glucose as I’ve learned from you guys. If you disagree with their version of keto, then they shame you for not understanding the diet. In fact, when I asked about testing my blood ketones recently, one person responded that eating 20g carbohydrates will automatically put you in to ketosis. I know this isn’t true, but it’s made me think about how I can go about discovering what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for me. Can you guys help?

Thanks for all you do!

Are they beneficial while eating ketogenic? Jimmy and Adam, Various spices are reputed for their glucose lowering effects. For example, apple cider vinegar, fenugreek, and cinnamon are all well-known to decrease blood sugar levels and I’m sure there are many others. My question for you guys is this: What impact does ingesting these spices have while on a ketogenic diet specifically on BHOB blood ketone levels. I currently take fenugreek because I learned about the glucose lowering effects in a study when it slowed the absorption of the carbage these SAD dieters were eating. But since a well-formulated keto diet has very few carbs to begin with, would the fenugreek provide the same benefit or may it even backfire given that fenugreek is almost 60% carbohydrates? I realize blood sugar lowering isn’t the same as ketone-boosting, but I do see the two going hand-in-hand. So what do you think? I realize this might be a question without a clear answer, but I’d still love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for the very informative and helpful podcast.

Does a ketogenic diet lower insulin levels and provide ultimate healing for insulin resistance which seems to be genetic? Hi guys, I'm a recovered diabetic thanks to eating a low carb (but not necessarily ketogenic) diet. I used to be on the maximum daily Metformin dosage and took 130 units a day of long-acting insulin. I’m off all of those medications now and have an A1c of 5.3. I lost 60 pounds fairly easily on low-carb, but now it’s stalled out. My insulin levels are still very high, so I assume I’m still quite insulin resistant which is making the weight loss stubborn. I’ve added in some intermittent fasting of 18/6 as well as a few 24-hour fasts on the weekend where my blood ketone levels have reached about 1.0 mmol. My question for you guys is this: Does your experience show that a truly ketogenic diet lowers insulin levels? Some experts I’ve heard have said that research shows that insulin resistance is pretty much genetic which means you may not be able to drop it below some arbitrary level no matter what you do. Do you agree or disagree with this? Thanks for answering my question! Mark HIGH-FAT LOW-CARB, PERFECT MACROS NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship 2. Could incorrect pressure in a CPAP machine prevent weight loss despite achieving therapeutic levels of ketones? Hello Jimmy and The Doc, I have a question for you about sleep apnea. I have used a CPAP machine for 15+ years and I wear it faithfully every night. I started keto in January 2016 and have noticed since eating this way that I don't have as many aches and pains as I once did. I have only been able to lose 10 or so pounds, my blood pressure is somewhat high at 138/85, my AC1 is 5.7, and my urine cortisol levels are fairly high at 188. Could incorrect pressure in my CPAP machine have anything to do with not being able to lose weight despite the fact that I’m burning ketones according to the Ketonix which always shows me blowing red for higher levels of ketosis? Thank you for your time, Kurt 3. Can a high-dose Vitamin C IV treatment spike blood sugar levels alone or is there hidden glucose causing this? Hey Guys, We love your podcast and anxiously await the new episodes each week. My wife and I have been low-carb for two years and keto most of the time for the past year. I travel about 18 days a month so it’s hard to maintain a state of nutritional ketosis all the time. We are 60 and 61 years old and we keep our blood ketone levels between 0.5 to 1.0 most of the time. Our question is about rising blood sugar levels after getting a Vitamin C IV from our functional medical doctor. My wife and I have both been getting this treatment lately because our bloodwork showed that we are low on Vitamin B and C even though we take supplements for both of them. After the first Vitamin C IV treatment, my blood glucose level rose to 172 and my wife’s went to 284 about 1 hour after the treatment. Our normal fasting blood glucose levels are between 77-95 depending on how we ate the day before. Needless to say, we became concerned this would have a negative impact on our insulin resistance. When we asked our doctor about it thinking that there must be some glucose in the IV bag, she said that it was just a reaction to the high dose vitamin C and that there was no glucose in it. We had already paid for two treatments each, so we did it again this week and this time our blood sugar went up to 144 and 128 respectively an hour later. Have you ever heard of this kind of reaction or do you think that there was some glucose in the IV? Our doctor knows that we practice low-carb and she is monitoring us because she’s still quite skeptical.

Hello guys, Back in Episode 12 of Keto Talk, Dr. Nally mentioned that cortisol levels rise as a direct result of an injury or surgery and that depending on the extent of the damage to your body and the repair it needs, it might kick you out of ketosis for 2-12 months. So my question for you is this: When you are out of a state of nutritional ketosis during this recovery period and assuming that you stay on a ketogenic diet, what exactly is my body using for fuel during this time? And what is happening to all the dietary fat I am consuming? Thanks for a great and very informative podcast!
