Your Questions:

1. Do the additives found in some brands of heavy cream inhibit ketosis, and are they potentially harmful?  

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I made the ketogenic lifestyle change over a year ago and my A1c has dropped down from 6.2 to 5.4. I listen to Keto Talk every week and you guys have trained me to look closely at ingredient labels. I eat a lot more heavy cream and my question for you today has to do with the mono and diglycerides as well as the carrageenan that are added to heavy whipping cream. Some people claim these are harmless and others say they are horrible. What I want to know is, do they mess with ketosis? Are they dangerous to your health in any way? I appreciate your feedback on this one.

3. Are there certain non-grass-fed/organic meats that should absolutely be avoided if you are pursuing healthy ketosis?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I've just read Dr. Cate Shanahan's book Deep Nutrition and now I'm baffled as what to eat on a ketogenic diet (from a safe and healthy perspective). I simply can't afford grass-fed beef. I can only get it at a health food store and it's way too expensive for me. I normally shop at Costco and Sobey’s grocery store. I buy pork only from humanely-raised brands. That’s really the only feasible healthy meat choice for me to consume. I buy organic whenever I can. I like beef liver, beef heart, and chicken liver, but they don't ever come from grass fed or even organic sources. What would you advise to NOT eat at all amongst these non-grass-fed/organic choices for meat? What should I be eating on my keto plan that is very healthy that maybe I’m not thinking about? How do I stay on budget in my finances while pursuing optimal health through nutritional ketosis? I've heard some say you need to do the best you can, but I really want to know which foods to avoid if you can't get the good quality.

Thank you guys, I love what you do,

Monika

4. Could the detoxification that takes place from eating keto cause the lymph nodes to swell temporarily until things calm down in the body?

Dear Jimmy and Will,

My question for you guys is about the lymph nodes. Is it possible, since the lymphatic system is a filtering process, that swollen lymph nodes after going keto could be the result of the change in your diet? When you switch over to keto, your body does a natural detox, right? So is it feasible that swollen lymph nodes could be the result of this detoxification and given some time and a few adjustments, such as more water and possibly a lymphatic massage, they could go down on there own without any medical intervention? I understand that it probably depends on how swollen they are along with other factors. I was just curious if my hypothesis could be true?

Thanks for all you do and all the great information you both bring to the world that we may not otherwise get.

Sincerely,

Amanda

4. Why did I experience reactive hypoglycemia after eating a ketogenic meal?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a big fan of you guys and four days into eating keto. I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of this and wanted to run something by you. I ate the following food a couple of days ago: one medium avocado, two eggs over easy, two Italian sausages, 3 tablespoons of sour cream, and 3 tablespoons of Kerrygold grass-fed butter. After consuming this food, I almost immediately felt flush, dizzy, and off. I started researching Dr. Google and it looks like I had reactive hypoglycemia. Is this normal on a ketogenic diet or what did I do wrong? Interestingly, I had a fatty coffee and pastrami with cream cheese today and didn’t have any of those same symptoms from he other day. Could it be the extra fat in my meal today compared to the other day? Thanks for the advice on this one.

Matthew

5. Are there concerns that medicinal herbs and adaptogens can play a negative role in a patient’s health much in the same way as a pharmaceutical drug?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I listen to you guys all the time and Will I hear you talk about various herbs and adaptogens that you’ve found useful in your clinical practice for your patients basically every week. You also talk about the side effects that come from prescription medications. As a fellow medical practitioner, I see both herbs and pharmaceutical drugs as basically extra chemicals substances that you are adding to a patient’s body in the hopes of eliciting a helpful or healing response. All these extra chemicals and compounds, whether food/plant based OR pharmaceutical based, potentially can interact with each other in very bad ways.

In the hospital where I work, I’ve seen examples of herbs causing liver and bleeding problems and interacting with other medications. The word “natural” does not particularly reassure me; cocaine, toxic mushrooms, poison ivy, and castor beans are all natural and they are also all noxious. A lot of the pharmaceuticals we use (penicillin, digitalis, the list goes on and on) are basically purified natural products. Pharmaceuticals, at least in theory, have to go through a rigorous testing process including ruling out the very powerful placebo effect.

My problem is that herbs and such don’t have to go through that same scrutiny before being made available to the general public. We really have no idea what the dosage of the active ingredient(s) might be from bottle to bottle, brand to brand, of all these herbs, do we? I’ve been low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic for the past five years, was a featured success story in Keto Clarity, have been on Jimmy’s podcast, and teach at an Osteopathic medical school now. I certainly have no objection to herbs, adaptogens, and other natural health supplementation and would never support banning them. But just how well tested are they?

Thanks again for a great show! You made this medical doctor think and that’s a good thing.

Dr. Jim Small

“I think insulin resistance is misunderstood .” – Jimmy Moore – Just one high-fat meal sets the perfect stage for heart disease

– American adults just keep getting fatter

– Are You Carbohydrate Intolerant? Here’s How To Know + What To Do About It

– Is it true that your body cannot burn stored body fat if you are taking exogenous ketones since the body has to deal with these first before fat-burning can happen?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

Craig and Maria Emmerich say in their book KETO that taking exogenous ketones should be avoided because the body can’t store them. On the oxidative priority list alcohol is number one followed by exogenous ketones, carbs, protein, and then fat. Since alcohol and exogenous ketones can’t be stored in the body, it immediately begins working to get rid of it as a matter of priority. They say that fat comes in last on the list because it is the body’s preferred fuel source. According to them, when these exogenous ketones are ingested, lipolysis (fat burning) stops. At least that’s how I understood the explanation. This is so frustrating for me to try to understand because exogenous ketones are pushed so strongly in the ketogenic community. I want my body burning stored fat, not exogenous ketones. I’m so very confused on this issue.

Thanks for your help,

Parrish

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,

My question is about fertility. I have heard that a keto diet is very beneficial for woman who are trying to get pregnant. I have a friend who has been trying for a very long time and it seems that she has what some have described as “killer cells.” What does that mean and can a ketogenic diet help?

2. Why do I feel funny in my head and nose side effects when my ketone levels go higher after consuming a Bulletproof coffee?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,

When my ketones are elevated, I start to get unwanted side effects and feel kinda funky in the head to the point that I have to lie down and I even get a weird sensation in my nose. This morning after putting Brain Octane Fuel from Bulletproof in m coffee with cream, about 30 minutes later my blood glucose was 84 and blood ketones at 3.3. That’s when I get that issue. What is that? I take 45mg NP Thyroid every morning a couple of hours before my coffee or eating, but no other prescriptions.

Thanks again for all you do!

3. Is it possible to be so well keto-adapted that your body can go in and out and back into ketosis more quickly even after a high-carb meal?

Hey Jimmy & Adam,

Last night, my fiancé and I went out to eat at an Italian restaurant for a friend’s birthday dinner and I decided to cheat. I had a salad, squid ink pasta w/lobster, and for dessert…a big slice of cake. Needless to say, this was a very high-carb, low-moderate protein, and low-fat dinner. I’ve been doing keto on and off for almost 2 years now, and this morning my fasting blood sugar showed 83 and blood ketone was 2.3. I’ve never experienced anything like this before.

Is it possible that I’m just so well keto-adapted now that my body can go in and out and back into ketosis much more quickly? I must also mention that because this high-carb meal was premeditated, I prepped for it by drinking a green drink w/apple cider vinegar and some kimchi before we left for the restaurant. Do you think this helped? I’m also in fairly good shape, and workout quite often so that might have also played a factor. I’ve also heard that eating carbs separately from protein and fats helps with digestion and vice versa.

Do you guys think that the low protein and low-fat helped with my body’s process of allocating the sugar properly so I was able to get right back into ketosis again?

Thanks for all you do,

Chris

KETO TALK MAILBOX

– Do I need to moderate my protein or moderate my fat intake in order to see success at losing weight on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy & Dr. Nally,

Thank you for doing Keto Talk. I binge listened the last two months and now I’m all caught up. Thanks for the great show because I’ve learned so much. Atkins was my first foray into this community a couple of decades ago and the Grain Brain, Paleo, Dr. Jason Fung and many other followed. Learning more about keto has become my favorite pastime and I only just discovered all these amazing podcasts. There’s one question I haven’t heard anyone provide a good answer for yet and I’m hoping you guys are up for the challenge of answering it. It has to do with the concept of gluconeogenesis. I’ve heard you and Dr. Nally state that it can play a significant role in kicking you out of ketosis and raising blood sugar levels which is why you need to moderate protein intake. You also discuss eating a high-fat diet to satiety and that this within the context of a low-carb nutritional intake does not lead to weight gain. You’ve noted on several occasions that if fat is consumed in excess of what is needed, then the body excretes the extra fat out of the breath, urine, and feces.

However, there seems to be two very opposing views amongst the greater keto world and I’d like to know which side is right and why you think the other side is wrong. One the one side, you’ve got people who say that gluconeogenesis is not something to worry about and that eating a higher protein intake will not affect ketosis (or fat adaptation) and that dietary fat should be moderated for those needing to lose weight so your body can tap into those fat stores instead of using dietary fat for energy. On the other side, you have people like you guys who say the body is burning both stored body fat and the dietary fat that you eat simultaneously so you do not gain weight when you eat more fat. This side also thinks you should moderate down on the protein to prevent the insulin and blood sugar effects that can come from consuming this macronutrient in excess of what the body needs.

So who’s right? Is there some middle ground between these two positions? My main question is whether moderating protein or moderating fat is the best way to shed pounds which is my current goal. It seems that many people listening to this and other leto-focused podcasts are interested in weight loss, so we need to be crystal clear about what will work to make that happen. I understand everybody needs to find the version of keto that works for them but this is difficult for the common person to figure out. Can you help me and others determine how we can figure all this out so we can be successful on keto?

Thanks for all you do!

Manny

– STUDY: Effect of a 6-month vegan low-carbohydrate ('Eco-Atkins') diet on cardiovascular risk factors and body weight in hyperlipidaemic adults: a randomised controlled trial. 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!

“In the next four or five years this is what everybody is going to be talking about. Educate yourself now so that you can make an informed decision about your health.”  – Jimmy Moore 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,

Patricia

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.

Rank #13: 152: Dr. Will Cole And Seamus Mullen From The goopFellas Podcast Share How To Do Keto Well Or Worse

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we have a very special episode of Keto Talk with The goopFellas. As most of you know, Jimmy’s weekly co-host Dr. Will Cole recently launched a podcast on Gwynyth Paltrow’s goop network with his co-host Chef Seamus Mullen. Together they tackle subjects on health and well being with a focus on transformation.

“I know from seeing patients how prevalent anxiety is in all types of people, but it’s important to talk about so that we can get tools to start feeling better and whole.”

- Dr. Will Cole Paid advertisement

On this special episode of goopFellas on Keto Talk, cohosts Dr. Will Cole and Seamus Mullen break down the ketogenic diet. Should you switch to a high-fat, low-carb baseline? What would you eat in a typical day? When do our bodies go into ketosis, and what are the potential health benefits? What about intermittent fasting? Seamus shares his personal experience of changing his diet while healing from rheumatoid arthritis. And Will shares examples from his functional medicine practice, the kinds of diets he typically prescribes for patients with chronic inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and how he tweaks the conventional keto model to be cleaner and more vegetable-forward for anyone (he’s the author of Ketotarian, after all).

“The decision you make in your mid 30s definitely impact what happens to you in your 40s. The sooner you start to take care of yourself the better you will be.”

- Seamus Mullen Paid advertisement

goopFellas: What drives people to change, to heal, to reinvent themselves? Two friends who have become familiar with unlikely personal transformations talk with people who have experienced profound shifts in perspective and well-being: Chef Seamus Mullen himself almost died from rheumatoid arthritis, and functional medicine practitioner Will Cole’s day job is helping people uncover and overturn the roots of dis-ease. Together, they get at the catalysts that bring people out of their dark night and into their purpose.

HEALTH HEADLINES:

– How do you heal fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue when you’re doing everything perfect in your ketogenic lifestyle?

Hi guys,

I’m a longtime listener listener and appreciate all of the information you give so generously! I’m trying to figure out how to heal from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome which I was diagnosed with in 2014. I have eaten an LCHF diet for many years and lost around 30kg (~66 pounds). I'm 59 years old and have been a yo-yo dieter my entire life. On low-carb, I have been much more successful in stabilizing my weight and the trend has been moving slowly in the right direction with about 22 pounds left to go. It’s such a struggle. Even still, my fasting blood glucose is 5-6 mmol/L and blood ketones are 0.5-0.9 mmol/L.

I’ve been very strict in my keto diet for a while, but the aches and pain in my arms and legs from my fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue persists. The good news is my brain is a lot clearer and I’m able work again. It’s so difficult to find any doctors here in Sweden willing to run the tests I need to dig a little deeper into this. What would you suggest I do to help with my health issues? Thanks for your input.

Susan from Sweden

– Why is the blood glucose response to a higher-carb meal greater since I’ve gone strict keto than it was when I was only eating low-carb?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

Can you explain more about the blood glucose rebound effect that happens after eating keto for a while and then having a higher carb meal? I’ve noticed much higher blood sugar readings when I eat carbohydrates while on a ketogenic diet than I did just eating low-carb. I suppose it’s sign that my insulin resistance has gotten worse, but I can’t imagine why since I’m on keto. Granted, it is not always perfect in my keto diet and I don't track macros anymore. But my normal readings two hours postprandial might have been 130 before but now it’s 160.

Good luck with your six-month sabbatical, Jimmy. And thank you for answering my question.

Donna

– How can I optimize my keto lifestyle with the APAO2 gene mutation that makes it difficult to process saturated fat?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I have been keto for a year and a half and I’ve lost 60 without taking any medications. I recently learned that I have the APAO2 gene mutation that makes it difficult for my body to process saturated fat. My doctor insists that I cut my fat intake and eat a lot of vegetables. My LDL-P is 2418 and my heart calcium score came in very high at 268. I also have high oxidized LDL. I’ve been dairy-free for a year which has helped me boost my HDL cholesterol to an all-time high of 49. I took statin medications for almost 18 years before the side effects became too much for me to bear. I’m 68 years and just want to be as optimally healthy as I can possibly be. The one bright spot is my inflammation marker hsCRP is stellar at 0.3.

Should I be eating more lean proteins and increasing my intake of avocado, olives, and nuts along with eating more leafy greens?  I am considering the Ketotarian way of eating since it seems to fit my genetic needs at this time. I just hate to give up so many of the animal-based foods I enjoy.

Thanks for your help,

Kenneth

– Will a ketogenic diet help patients dealing with atrial fibrillation?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I just listened to your special episode with guest cohost Dr. Jay Wiles from a few weeks back where you discussed the bogus a-fib study. As someone who has this condition, I appreciated your input on that. But you guys didn’t say whether keto would help with this disease or not.

My experience has been that my heart palpitations get worse eating keto and that if I backed off my thyroid medication I get relief from this. I’m not sure why, but I suspect it is the hormone regulatory effects that come from a ketogenic diet. Unfortunately, when I did this my TSH shot way up to (yes, that’s not a typo—338!), and my doctor was obviously VERY concerned. I went back on the medication for fear of not knowing what impact chronically high TSH would have on the body. (I live in Canada and doctors rarely test any of the other numbers on the thyroid panel).

Can you talk more about what impact eating keto has on patients with a-fib? Thanks so much.

Brenda

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

– Is using senna leaf as a daily laxative to deal with opiate-induced constipation causing damage to the microbiome and general gut health?

Hey guys,

I eat >keto, but have a really bad case of opiate-induced constipation which forces me to use senna leaf as a laxative on a daily basis.  I try to boost my gut health with fermented foods, probiotics, and digestive aids. But it seems I’m hopelessly addicted to taking laxatives since I can’t poop without help. This is probably a silly question, but is my microbiome suffering from this? I haven’t had a solid stool in months. So embarrassing!

Thanks for helping me with this!

KEY QUOTE: “The What The Health? documentary is nothing more than a propaganda film. There’s no other way to put it. It’s meant to be incendiary and make you not like meat.”  – Jimmy Moore

The new documentary film What The Health has a lot of people talking these days, but as word spread about the message this film is actually conveying, Jimmy decided to watch it for himself to see what all the fuss was about. Knowing this brand of propaganda could not stand without an official keto repsonse, Jimmy spent way more time than was healthy wading through off of the misinformation to bring you the truth about what these filmmakers are saying.

“I think the best ketogenic approach in the world will become unraveled if you aren’t sleeping and are stressed.”

Your Questions:

What can I do to help get rid of the persistent and overwhelming carb cravings that hit me even while eating keto?

Hey Jimmy and Will, 

I recently joined in on Jimmy’s 7-day fasting challenge on Instagram and they were so incredibly helpful. I was really hoping that would be a reset for me and a springboard into eating clean keto. I’ve been struggling for years with on again off again low-carb eating, but I just have super intense carb cravings. I ended up going through my time of the month and struggling through that last day of the fast and then crashed and burned back into eating tons of carbage afterwards. I caught your emotional eating JIMMY RANTS episode and I just need some help with figuring out how to conquer the craving insanity that I just can’t always willpower through. I want to be successful once and for all, but I’m feeling like a failure here, yo-yoing at very high weights, with Type 2 diabetes. I know that the answer to this lies within eating a keto template and I’m not afraid to put in the hard work to make it happen. But I definitely feel controlled by food.  I refuse to believe that I have to have a dangerous weight loss surgery to conquer this problem, but I’ve been winning some battles but losing the war for years. What do you recommend for the obsessive, overwhelming cravings, and persistent thoughts about food? How do I get actual control over this?

Thanks so much,

Rhonda

If cholesterol isn’t a bad thing, then why did keto lead to these permanent deposits of cholesterol underneath my eyelids?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thanks for this podcast. I started reading Jimmy’s book Cholesterol Clarity recently because I developed these yellow bumpy lines under my eyes and was told it’s because I have high cholesterol.  I went to the doctor and immediately they wanted to put me on statins. I hate going to the because of this kinda thing. They didn’t even go over the results with me. They had the front desk call me and tell me I had a high cholesterol number and that there was a prescription for statins waiting for me at the pharmacy.  I didn’t take them, of course, and I retested after a three-month, 30l-pound keto weight loss and it was even higher. The doctor again insisted I take a statin and I again refused. 

My question for you guys is if cholesterol isn’t bad, then why do these permanent deposits of cholesterol end up on my face? They look horrible and I’m told they will never go away on their own. How and why does this happen? I wanted to show you these yellow things on my face and I wondered if you had any knowledge about them. Thank you for answering my question.

Would a genetic liver cirrhosis condition be hindered or helped by eating a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet?

Greetings Jimmy and Will,

My boyfriend was recently diagnosed with liver cirrhosis which developed as en effect of a genetic disorder he was not aware of. He’s never been much a drinker and he definitely doesn’t drink now. He works out regularly and eats somewhat “healthy” according to his doctors. He’s in great shape especially for someone with only 20% liver function. I read somewhere that a hepatic diet is made up of primarily carbs since protein breakdown is impaired and fat is bad for the liver. I by no means consider myself an expert on nutrition and metabolism, but this sounds like total BS to me. It doesn’t make sense to feed your liver carbs which turn into sugar. In my mind, it just makes sense that a keto diet is the way to go in conjunction with coffee enemas perhaps. What do you think? I want to learn and do as much as I can to help my boyfriend have the best life and the best health possible. 

Thank you,

Brenda

Why do I have bloating when I eat keto foods? Why won’t my Ketonix breath ketone analyzer show the presence of ketosis with anything I do?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I love your show and never miss an episode because it really helps keep me on track. I’m a 31-year old breastfeeding female and have been eating keto since January 2017. When I transitioned to keto, I had already been breastfeeding my daughter for 10 months and I was starting to struggle with weight gain and hunger that was much worse than when I was pregnant. I ate whole organic foods and took probiotics for years but still consumed far too much sugar (honey, coconut sugar, and grains) and I knew I had to make a change when I started gaining more weight than I ever had in my life and having an insatiable appetite for sugar. 

My transition was rough and I had keto flu and lightheadedness for weeks despite consuming plenty of water, salt loading, and taking a multimineral supplement. Urine test strips at the time showed that my ketones were off the charts high. At the beginning of my pregnancy my hemoglobin A1C was prediabetic, but after a few months on keto it was down to normal. My fasting blood sugar in the morning is now 83, and it drops to 76 after my 25 minute beginner’s strength training workout and 59 two hours after my usual breakfast of scrambled eggs. In the evening, 2 hours after dinner, it is around 80. I lost about 30 pounds in the first months and my milk supply never dropped (I’m still breastfeeding now, almost a year on keto later, with no problems.) 

I love the ketogenic way of eating and am so thankful to be off carbs, but I have two main concerns: the first one is constant bloating. When I still ate carbs I had stomach pain every morning that improved after eating breakfast. Now that I’m keto I tend to feel very bloated after meals. I eat dairy and nuts, but temporarily cutting them out of my diet and it doesn’t seem to make a difference. Sometimes my worst bloating is after eating something like riced cauliflower with bacon. It seems like everything sits in my stomach too long. And I really can’t handle seltzer water! I once had a UGI endoscopy in my stomach for the stomach pain years ago and it showed everything normal except for low stomach acid. Could that be the problem? How do I increase stomach acid? I also sometimes have nausea and an acid taste, like reflux symptoms, although I’ve never had heartburn. 

My other concern is with testing my ketones. I use the Ketonix breath analyzer and no matter what I do, I blow green. If I have a glass of dry champagne the night before and keto treats full of almond flour and cheese, I blow green the next day. If I intermittent fast for three days and eat very strict keto, I still blow green! How is this possible? Am I truly in ketosis? Thank you so much for your help!

Would the inevitable diabetic neuropathy be rectified more effectively with IF and keto than with Gabapentin?

Hey guys,

My boyfriend’s mother was just diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, she suffers from horrible neuropathy and finds it very difficult to sleep at night which is very common. I have read on the Internet that people with neuropathy most of the time are prescribed a drug called Gabapentin. To my surprise, they are also prescribes to patients as antidepressants. The more I think about it, long-term use of these drugs has to be very difficult on the kidneys and liver which is a double whammy for diabetics who already have issues with both of these organs.

To me, it seems intermittent fasting and keto can help solve this neuropathy without the need for any risky medications. In your functional medicine practice, Dr. Cole, have you found this to be true in your patients?

Sincerely, 

Emi

A new twist on keto: The fat-burning power of ketogenic eating meets the clean green benefits of a plant-centric plate

The keto craze is just getting warmed up. The ketogenic diet kick-starts your body's metabolism so it burns fat, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel. But most ketogenic plans are meat- and dairy-heavy, creating a host of other problems, especially for those who prefer plants at the center of the plate. Dr. Will Cole comes to the rescue with Ketotarian, which has all the fat-burning benefits without the antibiotics and hormones that are packed into most keto diets.

First developed for individuals suffering from seizures, keto diets have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic health problems including Alzheimer's and some cancers. Adding a plant-based twist, Ketotarian includes more than 75 recipes that are vegetarian, vegan, or pescatarian, offering a range of delicious and healthy choices for achieving weight loss, renewed health, robust energy, and better brain function.

Packed with expert tips, tricks, and advice for going--and staying--Ketotarian, including managing macronutrients, balancing electrolytes, and finding your carb sweet spot, this best-of-both-worlds program is a game-changer for anyone who wants to tame inflammation and achieve peak physical and mental performance.

– 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.

STUDY: Low-fat diet could kill you, major study shows

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.

KEY QUOTE: “You get so frustrated by all the misinformation that you wonder if it will ever change. The good news is it is changing. Even five years ago nobody was talking about healthy saturated fats, and now it’s mainstream.”  – Jimmy Moore

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!

Emmy

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,

Rank #20: 144: Top Functional Medicine Lab Testing Every Keto Dieter Should Be Running

Podcast cover
Read more

In Episode 144 of Keto Talk, Jimmy and Dr. Will Cole dig into the subject of Functional Medicine and Dr. Cole explains to us exactly what tests every keto dieter should be running and what they mean to you.

“It's rarely one thing that is the magic bullet. Normally it's a confluence of different factors. These labs allow us to find the pieces of the puzzle.” – Dr. Will Cole

“You can take a shotgun approach with labs and do everything, or use them to really fine tune your health.” – Jimmy Moore

The specific tests we talk about in this episode and the ranges you should be looking for:

C-reactive protein

Inflammation is one primary way disease genes get turned on, and it is generally destructive all over the body. C-reactive protein is an inflammatory protein that, while it is essential for cleaning up bad bacteria, in excess it can lead to accelerated aging, chronic disease, and damage to the telomeres.

Optimal Range: < 0.5 mg/L

Small dense LDL particles

What you thought was “bad cholesterol” (LDL) isn’t all bad, and labelling it so is a simplistic and inaccurate view of cholesterol. LDL particles are proteins that carry cholesterol around in your body. Some of these particles are big and buoyant, while others are small and dense. It’s the small dense LDL particles that can cause damage, while the larger fluffier particles are essentially benign. Knowing your level of small dense LDL particles is much more instructive that simply knowing your total cholesterol, because it is the small dense LDLs – not the cholesterol itself – that indicate a riskfor heart attack and stroke (and thereby put you at risk for an earlier death).

Optimal Range: < 200 nmol/L

Homocysteine

This protein in excess (especially when coupled with a B vitamin deficiency) has been linked to cognitive decline, which can drastically reduce quality as well as length of life.

Optimal Range: < 7 Umol/L

Hgb A1C

This test tells you what your blood sugar has been, on average, for the past two to three months. When it is high, it can indicate pre-diabetes or diabetes, and an elevated A1C has been linked with higher rates of all-cause mortality in patients with diabetes.

Optimal Range: < 5.3%

Vitamin D

This nutrient is responsible for hundreds of different genetic pathways in the body but because most people spend most of their day indoors and get little sun exposure, vitamin D deficiency is rampant. That’s too bad because this deficiency is linked to chronic disease, and optimal levels are linked to an actual preservation of telomeres, meaning you live longer and stay healthier! If that’s not a reason to get a little sunshine, I don’t know what is. Note that vitamin D should be paired with other fat soluble vitamins, like vitamin A and K2, for maximum absorption.

Optimal Range: 50-60 ng/mL

Fasting insulin

When your body breaks down carbohydrates, and to a lesser extent, proteins into glucose, your blood sugar goes up. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin to send your blood sugar into your cells (for energy) and bring down the level in your blood. However, if insulin gets activated too often at too high levels, this has been linked to accelerated aging and telomere shortening.

Optimal Range: < 3 ulU/mL

C-peptide: Optimal Range: 0.8 to 3.1 ng/mL Fasting blood sugar: Optimal Range: 75 to 90 mg/dL Triglycerides: Optimal Range: < 100 mg/dL HDL: Optimal Range: 59 to 100 mg/dL

Hormone testing: Urine and Saliva Other Nutrients: Selenium, Mg, Iron, MMA,

Microbiome labs: We look to assess gut health, where around 80 percent of our immune system resides.

Intestinal permeability lab: This blood test looks for antibodies against the proteins that govern your gut lining (occludin and zonulin), as well as bacterial toxins that can cause inflammation throughout the body, called lipopolysaccharides (LPS).

Multiple autoimmune reactivity labs: This array shows us if your immune system is creating antibodies against many different parts of the body, such as the brain, thyroid, gut, and adrenal glands. The labs are not meant to diagnose an autoimmune disease, but to look for possible evidence of abnormal autoimmune-inflammation activity.

Cross reactivity labs: Helpful for people who are gluten-sensitive and who have gone gluten-free and eat a clean diet, but still experience symptoms like digestive problems, fatigue, and neurological symptoms. In these cases, relatively healthy food proteins—such as gluten-free grains, eggs, dairy, chocolate, coffee, soy, and potatoes—may be mistaken by the immune system as gluten, triggering inflammation. To their immune system, it’s as if they have never gone gluten-free.

1. AHCY:

This enzyme is responsible for breaking down the amino methionine by converting S-adenosylhomocysteinase into pro-inflammatory homocysteine. Mood disorders are common for those with a double mutation but typically do well with SAMe supplementation.

2. BHMT:

The BHMT gene directs the enzyme responsible for the amino acid methionine, the building block in the choline oxidation process for optimal brain function. Changes in this gene are associated with ADHD.

3. CBS

No, not the television network! It actually stands for the enzyme that makes the amino acid cystathionine. A mutation of this gene will lead a person to produce more sulfur end products and as a result will need to limit sulfur-rich foods such as legumes and dairy. These foods can increase ammonia levels and contribute to existing health problems. NOS and SUOX are two other genes that can increase sulfur and are linked to immune disorders like asthma.

4. COMT:

This gene is responsible for creating a healthy balance of neurotransmitters and, in turn, a healthy brain. A double COMT gene change is associated with increased risk for anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, and ADHD.

5. MAO:

The main role of the MAO gene is to clear out excess neurotransmitters like serotonin. When changes to this gene occur it can create an imbalance in neurotransmitters leading to increased rates of anxiety and depression. Those with an MAO mutation, as well as the MTHFR gene mutation, can have a higher rate of histamine intolerance. Because of this even healthy foods such as fermented foods, bone broth, and vinegar can increase inflammation.

6. MTHFR:

This is not an acronym for a swear word guys, get your mind out of the gutter. The biggest thing I use DNA testing for is to assess methylation, a biochemical superhighway that help your gut, brain, hormones, and detox pathways function properly. This process happens a billion times every single second so if methylation isn’t functioning well, neither are you. Since I often deal with a variety of gut, brain, and hormonal problems in my clinic it is important to see if my patients methylation is working well.

The MTHFR enzyme is responsible for converting folic acid into folate which acts as fuel to the methylation process. A1298C and C677T are the two main MTHFR mutation. When A1298C is altered it can lead to mood disorders due to its important role in neurotransmitter function. C677T changes can cause higher levels of inflammatory homocysteine. Both of these are linked to autism and autoimmune conditions like autoimmune thyroid issues.

7. MTR/MTRR:

These are necessary for B12 production, another methyl donor. Those who have this mutation need higher intake of B12 because their body uses it faster than it produces it. Oftentimes people who have this genetic change can also be low in lithium which is needed for mood regulation. We can easily check lithium levels through testing blood and hair.

8. VDR

VDR stands for vitamin D receptor. Every single cell in your body uses vitamin D. Other than your thyroid hormone, no other nutrient or hormone can claim that importance. It is responsible for over 200 different pathways in the body. Mutations in this gene make it really difficult to absorb vitamin D. It’s important to know if this is the case for you in order to supplement higher doses on a consistent basis to make sure you are getting enough of this vital nutrient.

9. Detox genes

I also look for changes in your detox genes such as CYP1A2, also known as your caffeine gene. This can show just how well you can tolerate caffeine and whether or not it can be harmful or beneficial to your health.

“I have a theory; fasting fits nicely with just about every diet plan.”

Dr. Cecily Anne Clark-Ganheart, MD, FACOG is a maternal-fetal and obesity medicine physician and speaker, located in the Kansas City Area.  She became interested in obesity medicine after her struggles with weight loss.  Like many of you, Dr. Cecily Anne would experience temporary weight loss, only to regain much of what she lost.

At the time of the birth of her second son, she reached her highest adult weight of 264 pounds.  That was in 2014. After that time, she had multiple attempts at weight loss.  Dr. Cecily Anne reached a weight of 202 pounds through an employer-sponsored weight loss program at the time. However, the weight began to return, though she followed the plan.

In 2017, Dr. Cecily Anne came across a book recommendation, entitled, The Obesity Code by Dr. Jason Fung.  It discussed intermittent fasting and presented obesity as a disease, rather than a lack of will power.  The next book I read was Deep Nutrition by Dr. Cate Schanahan, which talked about a more ancestral approach to eating involving whole, real foods.

Listen in today as Jimmy is joined by Dr. Cecily Anne as they talk all about the topic of fasting, especially as it intersects with pregnancy and how weight loss factors in. This is a REAL TALK you definitely don’t want to miss!

171: The Indelible Health Connection Between The Brain And The Gut

It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Today we talk about the intricate relationship between the gut and the brain.

“If there’s anything we want to impart to our listeners is ‘Take care of YOU.”

- Jimmy Moore

“A lot has changed in our diet, from disruption of the microbiome to the breakdown of nutrients in our food.”

- Dr. Will Cole

Today Jimmy and Will take a deep look at the fascinating connection between the brain and the gut. How can the brain possibly affect how our gut reacts, and how can the gut possibly have anything to do with mood and a sense of well being? Find out in this explosive special episode of REAL TALK!

It’s easy to take for granted what a brilliant biological machine the brain is. This amazing organ manages every aspect of your body — from your thoughts to your hormones, muscles and digestion.

Sadly, diseases of the brain are rampant in our society.

The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that close to 20% of American adults currently suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. And the U.S shells out around $113 billion every year on mental health treatment. These figures don’t even factor in the cost of autoimmune brain problems like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and autism — which are affecting more people every year.

With an increasing number of brain health problems we have to ask: why? Functional medicine is concerned with investigating the root causes.

It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Today we bring you a special interview with Cognitive Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf.

“We have to start with diet and exercise, but we also have to prepare our minds for change. You can be mindful, but then what do you do?”

– Dr. Caroline Leaf

“It seems to me that some people are falling apart while some people rise above the daily struggles. I’m interested in the intersection of these things.”

– Jimmy Moore

“Dr. Leaf is doing amazing research in connecting the brain and the body.”

– Dr. Will Cole

Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist with a Masters and PhD in Communication Pathology and a BSc Logopaedics, specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology. Since the early 1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. 

During her years in clinical practice and her work with thousands of underprivileged teachers and students in her home country of South Africa and in the USA, she developed her theory (called the Geodesic Information Processing theory) of how we think, build memory, and learn, into tools and processes that have transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), learning disabilities (ADD, ADHD), autism, dementias and mental ill-health issues like anxiety and depression. She has helped hundreds of thousands of students and adults learn how to use their mind to detox and grow their brain to succeed in every area of their lives, including school, university, and the workplace.

Listen in today to hear Dr. Leaf discuss the topic of toxic trauma and how these adverse effects can follow us throughout life and cause problems that might not be easy to pin down.

“If we want to build a society where we are truly equal, we have to be more brave and willing to make mistakes.”

168: Methylationcast: MTHFR And Other Gene Variants That Could Be Impacting Your Health

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s Thursday and that means another action-packed episode of the realest talk on the internet–Real Talk with Jimmy Moore and Dr. Will Cole. Today we bring you a special presentation we call the Methylationcast!

“Methylation happens about a billion times every second in the body, but we still don’t understand the totality of it, not even close.”

- Dr. Will Cole

“DNA testing is so accessible to the general public now. This information is accessible to just about everyone now.”

- Jimmy Moore

In the chemical sciences, methylation denotes the addition of a methyl group on a substrate, or the substitution of an atom by a methyl group. Methylation is a form of alkylation, with a methyl group replacing a hydrogen atom.

Your genetics influence almost every aspect of your health. Everything from your weight, mood, hormones, and immune system can be traced back to your DNA. As humans we want to know as much about ourselves as possible and because of this the demand for direct-to-consumer genetic testing has grown. For only $100 you can get a kit delivered right to your house for you to send in and get a complete summary of your genetics and ancestry. You can identify distant cousins around the world and conclude what percentage Neanderthal you are because really, who doesn’t want to know that?!

As a functional medicine practitioner Dr. Cole is less concerned with your particular ethnic heritage and more with what role genetics play in your health and how knowing your DNA can make you aware of your risk factors for certain illnesses. But are these tests really worth it or just an easy way for the health industry to make a few dollars? Let’s find out by first looking at the two most popular tests:

1. AHCY 2. BHMT 3. CBS 4. COMT 5. MAO 6. MTHFR 7. MTR/MTRR 8. VDR 9. Detox genes

If you are health-minded for very long, you have probably watched the progression and evolution of nutrition.

He showed us that carbohydrates were doing us more harm than good. Along the way we have seen other variations on this same way of thinking that brought us the Paleo way of eating, Whole 30, Keto, and now Carnivore.
