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!

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

– 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,

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

The Scientist Harnessing 'Toxic Fat'

- Why is The Doc so obsessed with bacon when it includes sugar in the ingredients?

Hello Jimmy and Doc,

I've been listening to Keto Talk almost every day since I’ve found you. Thank you very much for this very valuable resource. I gotta ask you something that’s been bugging me, though—what's up with The Doc's love of bacon? Every bacon package I've ever looked at has sugar, maple syrup, or both in the ingredients list. Is the sugar amount so negligible that we don’t need to worry about it?

Thank you for explaining this to me.

1. Where did the extra 4,000 calories worth of energy come from to power my hiking excursion when I only consumed 2,000 calories?

Dear Jimmy and Adam,

I really appreciate how Keto Talk helps listeners put the science of ketogenic living into practice. The fact that you two live what you teach is awesome. I listened to some of your shows when I was doing my N=1 experiment of a 30-mile hiking adventure powered mostly by ketones. Almost no carbs were consumed doing this—just water, MCT oil, and some exogenous ketones along with a low-carb meal in the evening. At the end of the experiment, I felt great. Although I love to run I walked for this experiment at a steady heart-rate of 100 to 115 BPM. My question for you is this: While I burned around 6,000 calories according to my FitBit data, I consumed only about 2,000 calories mostly from leafy greens, olive oil, macadamia nuts, eggs, coconut oil, and MCT oil to satiety. How did I burn 6,000 calories while only consuming 2,000 calories in my diet?

Thanks! I’m Keto4Life!

2. What happened to that mental clarity and improved mood that I experienced from my ketogenic diet early on? How do iI get them back?

Hey guys,

I’m a 34-year old male and have been keto for a little more than a year and have lost 40 pounds while improving health issues with my thyroid, blood pressure, and cholesterol. I check my ketone levels often and my energy is better than it has been in a decade. My question for you is regarding the mental clarity and uplifted mood that I initially enjoyed when I started keto. After the initial boost in my brain health, I feel like I’m back at baseline again with mental fog and a flat mood. I take a daily multivitamin as well as a combination of magnesium, potassium, and calcium supplements. Other than the occasional MCT oil or exogenous ketones for my workouts, I don't take any other medications or supplements. Do you have any thoughts on why my brain health benefits from being in ketosis have seemingly disappeared?

3. If I’m healthy and want to splurge with carbs on a cruise, will my body quickly become fat-adapted again? Or will I need to start all over again?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

Thank you so much for keeping this podcast going! I have a question I haven’t heard an answer to yet and I’d love to have you and Doc Nally chime in about it. I’m a very active 21-year old, lifting weights 3-4 times a week, and doing some form of cardio 2-3 times a week. I’m new to keto and I have noticed slightly less energy during some workouts while my body is still adapting to using fat as fuel instead of carbs. I am confident after listening to your podcast that the shift from sugar burner to fat burner will happen smoothly in due course.

So, here’s my tricky question: I have a cruise coming up in a few months when I’ll most certainly be fat-adapted by then. On the cruise I know there will be a wealth of fresh fruits, fancy drinks, as well as other carb-heavy treats. I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for a while and I don’t see why I shouldn’t enjoy a week of indulging in “carbage” as I don’t have any health worries at all. So here’s what I want to know—after this week of very high carbohydrate eating, will I have to start completely from scratch again or will my body quickly switch back to using fat for fuel when I commence eating keto? I don’t care too much about having to go through a week of feeling tired and not 100%, but will it take another 1-2 months like the first time? I really don’t want to go through all of that again.

Thank you for your feedback!

- Why hasn’t my insulin resistance improved as a Type 1 diabetic when I’m seemingly doing everything right?

Hi guys,

Great show and thank you for putting out amazing content on a weekly basis. I'm a Type 1 diabetic who suffered a heart attack about a year ago. I switched my diet to a plant-based vegan diet initially and then transitioned into a vegan ketogenic diet. My question for you guys is why has my insulin resistance seemingly increased on the ketogenic diet? My level of Lantus and Novo rapid insulin has nearly tripled. I used to eat 6 meals a day of high-protein, low-carb, and medium fat. I now eat 2-3 meals a day in the proper ketogenic ratios consisting of 120-150g protein, 30-50g carbs, and around 200g fat. My ketone levels have been between 1-2.5 mmol on my blood ketone meter. I seem to be doing everything right but can't get my insulin resistance in order. I'm pretty sure that inflammation was what caused my heart attack as my cholesterol levels were very low. So my main focus of going keto is to reduce this inflammation. Do you have any idea what is going on that I don’t seem to be getting better on keto?

Thank you for you help.

– 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.

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.

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.

In this episode of Keto Talk, Jimmy, and Dr. Will Cole welcome Christine Moore as Dr. Cole puts on his interviewer hat to talk all about Jimmy and Christine’s brand new book Real Food Keto. Listen in today as Dr. Cole asks Christine and Jimmy about the genesis of Real Food Keto, Christine's power story of her own health struggles and how nutritional therapy has helped her, why this is such an invaluable resource for the keto community, what they uncovered about nutrition that most people overlook, the importance of gut health, healthy fats, and much more.

“I had lots of several different health challenges throughout my life and never made the connection between nutrition and health.”

-Christine Moore, NTP

Everyone is talking about ketogenic diets now, and for good reason—a low-carb, high-fat nutritional approach is a highly effective way to lower blood sugar and insulin levels, reduce inflammation, increase energy, stabilize mood, and so much more. But far too many people are trying to go keto without shifting the focus of their diet to real, whole foods. That’s what Real Food Keto attempts to educate readers about, explaining the reasons why whole foods are a critical element in optimizing your pursuit of nutritional ketosis.

Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Christine Moore has teamed up with her husband, health podcaster and international bestselling ketogenic book author Jimmy Moore (Keto Clarity, The Ketogenic Cookbook, and The Keto Cure), to help you apply the principles of nutritional therapy to a healthy low-carb lifestyle. Most people think that going on a ketogenic diet will fix all their health and weight woes, but this book explains that sometimes it takes a little fine-tuning in your diet and supplementation to get the desired results.

Real Food Keto provides detailed information about a variety of topics that are rarely discussed in ketogenic circles, including

  • Digestion
  • Blood sugar regulation
  • Detoxification
  • Endocrine function
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Hydration
  • Stomach acid
  • The importance of eating real food

…and a whole lot more!

Real Food Keto also shares information about specific foods that provide the proper vitamins and minerals, resources on where to find quality foods, and a connection to Nutritional Therapy Practitioners who can help you with your ketogenic diet. An incredible collection of amazing keto recipes from international bestselling cookbook author Maria Emmerich rounds out this low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic approach to healing yourself from the inside out.

TESTIMONIAL:

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I want to thank you for all you do! I listen to your podcast all the time and wanted give you an update on my 76-year old mom who I recent put on keto. I fought all the naysayer doctors and others all along the way to tell them she didn’t need so much medication for diabetes, cholesterol, and blood pressure if I could change her diet to low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic. She was taking 500mg Metformin twice daily, but since going keto she’s been able to stop taking the Metformin. I cannot tell you how happy I am and how thankful that I found this podcast. Between Keto Talk and The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show, I have been able to educate myself on not only my own health, but also the health of my mother. Thank you again for all you do!

THE KETO DIET BY LEANN VOGELNOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

- Does the ketogenic diet help smooth the withdrawals associated with transitioning away from alcohol? Can starting keto work if you’re drinking alcohol?

Hi Jimmy & Doc Muscles,

I’ve listened to your podcasts for years, Jimmy, and recently finished the Keto Clarity audiobook. I’m sold on keto. I’ve been eating this way for a little less than a week, my usual sugar cravings are completely gone, and I feel great. But I’m doing this all with my husband in mind as well. He has horrible neuropathy in his feet probably because of pre-diabetes. He’s always been a guy who was thin and never gained weight despite being a horrible eater. Here’s the deal—I think he’s probably gonna be very resistant to making any changes in his diet and lifestyle, but the hardest part for sure is that he self-medicates with wine at the end of the day. His feet hurt, he’s tired, and he uses the wine as pain management. He’s got a bona fide addiction to it and I’m wondering how the ketogenic diet and alcohol withdrawal symptoms play together if at all. Any tips on how to ease this transition? Finally, would eating keto actually help with the symptoms or does he need to be alcohol-free before beginning on nutritional ketosis?

Thank you for your help with this!

1. Is a ketogenic diet taxing on the adrenals? Or can ketosis be beneficial in helping with irritability, fatigue, and sleeplessness?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Nally!

I'm so in love with The Doc and your lighthearted, yet very informative podcast! I love it when you guys brainstorm and drop knowledge for all of us to use and apply to our lives. Thank you! I recently had some lab tests done to see why I've been so irritable lately. I become wired at 9PM even though I’m physically tired and need rest. I just can’t sleep and I’m dragging myself out of bed in the morning. I had a baby just over year ago and she keeps me awake taking care of her, too. Here are some of the key markers from my labs:

Cortisol AM =12.5 DHEAS = 301 Testosterone total = 45 Testosterone, free = 8.4

I am still breastfeeding and started keto one week ago dropping 11 pounds so far. My naturopath prescribed me a prescription of a very low dose diuretic to lower my testosterone as well as various vitamins and supplements. I'm worried that this may be the beginning of PCOS as a direct result of insulin resistance or even a weird case of adrenal fatigue since my numbers are reversed from what they used to be. Since I've heard keto can be taxing on the adrenals, should I continue on with my ketogenic approach? Or can ketosis actually be beneficial in some way for someone like me?

Thanks a million times over for your help,

Hot Headed Keto Mama Mandy

2. What does it mean to “eat to satiety” on a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and The Doc,

I love your podcasts Keto Talk and Fasting Talk! Thank you for providing such a valuable service. I’ve read Keto Clarity and The Complete Guide To Fasting, but I don’t recall if this issue was specifically addressed: What exactly does it mean to “eat to satiety”? What does this actually look and feel like? I can’t really wrap my head around what you are saying by the phrase and would greatly appreciate it if you share more about this. I’m really looking forward to reading the book you guys are working on called The Keto Cure coming in September and I’ve already pre-ordered my copy.

Take care,

Meg

3. What happens to ketone levels when you begin to consume more carbohydrates/protein than your body needs? Immediate or gradual drop in blood ketones?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the show! I listen during my runs and while strength training. Regarding the issue of too many carbs or too much protein, is the relationship between ketone levels and carbs a step function or a linear relationship? If I eat one gram too many of carbohydrates and/or protein, will that kick me out of ketosis completely or does it slowly drop depending on how much extra carbs and protein I eat? In other words, if my blood ketone levels were at 1.4 before eating an extra gram of carbs or protein than my body needs, does that immediately kick me out of ketosis or do ketones merely fall?

Thanks!

KETO TALK MAILBOX

- Why do low-carb, high-fat experts refer to carbs as the body’s preferred fuel source and ketones as an alternative fuel source? Isn’t excess glucose a toxin?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I love the geek speak on Keto Talk and I can't get enough of it. You guys do a wonderful job, so please keep it up. My question is about carbohydrate being referred to as the preferred energy source for the body. I hear this statement frequently and I even hear it from LCHF people/experts like yourselves saying that "carbs are the body's preferred fuel source and fat/ketones are an alternative fuel source.”

People who say this use the logic that the body switches to using carbs first and therefore it must be "preferred.” When I read what happens when you ingest alcohol, the body shuts off/slows down fat and carb usage and switches to burning the alcohol. Alcohol is a toxin and it floats around in the blood and goes to organs including the brain which is why we feel drunk until the liver can detoxify it. So as an energy source it isn't "preferred" but the preference for the body is to get rid of it.

Switching back to carbs/glucose which we know can be toxic at high doses and the pancreas has to pump out more insulin to prevent that from happening, by default the body converts any excess glucose into fats and stores them in the body. In my eyes, I see that as the same as alcohol and not as a "preferred energy source" but barely even an alternative energy source. Can you please clarify this for me?

Thank you for all you do,

Tom

Rank #14: 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.

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 58:

Female prisoners demand less 'carb heavy' foods and moan they're served too many pizzas, pasta, and chips

- How is it possible for someone eating a ketogenic diet to go into a state of ketoacidosis? Should I be concerned?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I have been a BIG supporter of LCHF and keto for years. I personally follow low-carb and have found it to be the only diet that prevents me from binge eating. It has given me a freedom with food I never knew I could have. I was at brunch with a friend who is a nurse yesterday and was talking about how frustrated I am with the way that diabetes is currently managed by doctors and nurses here in Australia. But many dietitians and medical practitioners are too scared of speaking up about ketogenic diets out of fear of having their license pulled. My nurse friend told me she had a patient who only ate bacon and eggs in very small amounts and had to be admitted to the ER with ketoacidosis with ketones at 7.0 mmol. According to my friend, a dietitian who was involved in her care said to her, "I hate this stupid keto diet, there have been so many cases of this happening in the past few years." I was a bit gobsmacked given that the chance of someone with a normally functioning pancreas developing this seems impossible because insulin would prevent this from happening. But then I Googled this and found a case study of where this had also occurred to a woman: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc052709#t=article

I am really perplexed by the whole issue of how ketoacidosis could possibly happen in someone eating a ketogenic diet. This just doesn't make any sense to me. I'd love it if you could discuss this on your show.

I love Keto Talk so much and I never miss an episode!

Kind regards,

1. Can something in the ketogenic diet or ketosis itself have an impact on your voice to make it more raspy?

Hey, what's up guys? I’m a 36-year old Ketonian from Alaska and have been on the ketogenic diet for the past four months losing a total of 50 pounds. I have a weird question for you that I haven’t seen covered anywhere—can ketosis have an impact on your voice? I’m noticing that my voice has been a bit more raspy since starting the diet where it feels like I’m about to lose it. This always forces me to clear my throat but it has little to no effect. Does this have something to do with my beloved buttered coffee or something else in my ketogenic diet?

Thanks for the show…you guys are killing it!

2. Is simply cutting carbs and eating more fat in my diet enough without having to go full-fledged keto?

Hey guys, I’m totally new to this whole keto concept and not ready to dive all the way in just yet. I love a lot of what you say on this podcast and I found reading Dr. David Perlmutter’s book Grain Brain was a real eye opener. My question is whether simply reducing carbs a little to more of a moderate carbohydrate diet can make enough difference in my health without having to be so severely limited as happens when you go ketogenic. I’m a bona fide carboholic but not overweight. I just want to be healthier and fitter. If I replace my carb heavy choices with lower carb, higher fat ones instead, can I expect to experience the health gains you talk about on Keto Talk? Maybe I’ll try keto someday if you think I need it.

Thanks for all you do,

3. What non-scale victories should I be looking for when weight loss stalls while eating keto? Is a weight set point real or not?

Hi guys!

Your podcast accompanies me to and from work during the week and I enjoy all of the great insights Doc Nally has from his clinical experience. In Episode 16, The Doc mentioned that the rate of weight loss is rapid initially (5-15 pounds a month the first 3 months), then slows to a comparative crawl (2-5 pounds a month) thereafter. He said there is a high probability of a weight loss stall and I’m currently in the midst of that for the past year.

I am active on several low-carb message boards and see many, many people get frustrated by this slowing of their weight loss after rapidly losing a lot of weight in the first several months. Dr. Nally also said that if you have a lot of weight to lose, it can take several years to do it. I would love to hear more about this and any recommendations on what non-scale victories I should be looking for to keep me motivated.

I’ve talked about this with my low-carb doctor who says I am at my set point goal weight now and have nothing to worry about. Can you guys address the idea of a set point in your weight and whether I am worrying too much about this? Thanks so much and keep on ketoing on!

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

I just want to say how much I love your podcasts! You guys just fit together in an awesome way and seem to be having the best time while delivering fantastic information! I am 57 years old and did keto a couple of years ago for about two months and lost 35 pounds. I went to my doctor who wasn’t against keto but he told me this was a difficult diet to stay on. This planted a seed in my mind and I ultimately quit my ketogenic diet because of it. I gained back all of the weight I had lost and have had a horrible time getting going again. My husband wants to eat everything in sight and that doesn’t help me get back on track. He had three stents in November and would greatly benefit from eating keto as well. I feel defeated and just needed to reach out to someone who KNOWS the truth. I am going to start again, but already have the mindset that I will fail. I know that won’t help me, but it’s where I’m at. How can I help myself and convince my 60-year old husband that he needs to do this too? Maybe if I can convince him this will help our love life he’d be willing to give it a try. I have to hit him with something important to him.

Thanks so much for your help,

Cathy

- Is eating carbs a good way to lower blood sugar? And which is more important as a health goal—lowering blood glucose levels or insulin levels?

Hey guys,

I understand that blood glucose can rise on a ketogenic diet due to the physiologic glucose sparing effect you guys have discussed several times on the podcast. In his new book FAT FOR FUEL, Dr. Joe Mercola shares his solution to this by simply eating more carbs and thus trigger an insulin response to bring the glucose down. Of course, if you eat more carbohydrates in your diet to make this happen, it will invariably kick you out of ketosis. So in light of this, it begs the question: which is worse for you to have—higher glucose levels or higher insulin levels? Is there another way to bring blood glucose down without triggering insulin to go up? Maybe some light exercise would do the trick? Thanks for answering my question.

1. In light of my blood work results, is it possible keto isn’t right for me? If I want longevity, energy, and mental benefits, how should I eat?

Hi Jimmy and Adam,

Thank you for all that you're putting out there regarding ketogenic living. I first came across you Jimmy when you did a podcast with Dave Asprey a few years back and have listened to all of your Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show and Keto Talk episodes ever since.

I've been experimenting with keto on and off for the past few years. I don't do it for weight loss since I'm a lean 32 year old male at 8% body fat with high muscle mass and in very good shape (I can run a sub-6 minute mile, deadlift 3x my body weight, etc.). I follow keto for constant energy, mental acuity and longevity purposes.

When measuring my blood glucose levels while in keto, I find that they're quite high: 100-120 fasting blood glucose and up to 140 postprandial. I'm aware of physiologic insulin resistance, but the numbers nonetheless concern me; I just had blood labs done and my HbA1c was 5.8, up from 5.2 which were my numbers a year ago while on a moderate carb diet.

My triglycerides have also gone up from 54 in February on moderate carb to 97 today. My total cholesterol has risen from 180 to 225 but that's to be expected on keto. My testosterone is a bit on the low side for my age at 450, but it’s been this way regardless of whether I'm on keto, moderate carb, or have taken a week off of training (I was hoping keto would raise it).

Dr. Dominic D'Agostino acknowledges that for certain people, keto simply isn't the answer. Although I feel healthy eating this way, my blood work results seem to indicate otherwise. Am I one of those people who flourishes on moderate carb eating and the occasional fast and keto just isn't for someone like me? It's worth noting that my mother who is in her mid-60's is in spectacular shape with great lab numbers without ever going to the gym and she has always eaten a carb-laden diet.

One more interesting note to share with you is my body composition is identical whether I’m eating keto or high carb. So, with longevity being one of my top priorities alongside stable energy and mental acuity, what nutritional approach do you think I should do to reach my goals?

Thanks a lot for your help!

2. Is it possible to create acidosis from your diet and exercise choices? How can you prevent this from happening?

Hi guys,

Thank you for your work as it's an absolute asset to so many of us. I started doing 2 workouts a day of weight lifting and running or walking. I’ve noticed I started having painful urination as well as my side started hurting recently. When I checked my urine ketone levels several times, they were always extremely dark. After reading a graph on Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt’s website about acidosis, I became concerned. I immediately ate a bunch of carbs from ice cream and other sources to try to deal with this issue and stop the pain by driving down the ketones. I also drank some baking soda mixed with water since I thought this had to do with acidity. Amazingly, 8 hours after doing this I STILL showed ketones on the urine ketone sticks. So then I ate some chili cheese fries bringing my total carb consumption that day to 500g.

It's now been 3 days later and my body had never stopped producing ketones. It went to small levels at one point when I skipped my workout for a day. I'm a type 2 diabetic with chronic kidney disease who's used straight keto for about a year and have never seen anything like this. If I have a carb-filled meal, this will usually kick me out of ketosis for 4-5 days. So, have you seen acidosis happen as a result of diet and exercise? What are some things I can do to prevent that from happening again?

Thanks for your insights on this!

3. Is there any added benefit to taking one month off from keto annually vs. constantly staying in nutritional ketosis?

Hey Jimmy and The Doc,

I have listened to most of your Keto Talk podcasts as well as some LLVLC podcasts and they are both informative and entertaining. What I take from hearing people like Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Ted Naiman and Dr. Nally is that the hormone insulin is what controls and signals the storage or burning of fat and that lower insulin levels (outside of being a Type 1 diabetic) is healthier. It seems that intermittent fasting, keto, and exercise all lower insulin and improve health. Many of the arguments point to the evolution and hunter gatherer hypothesis of storing fat in times of plenty during the spring and summer and then burning stored body fat during the winter and when food was in shortage between animal kills. The problem with the modern-day SAD diet is that there are too many carbs in our diet that leads to elevated insulin levels which then results in insulin resistance and your body is constantly storing fat, never using it in times of need which never come, and leaves the individual perpetually hungry to eat and eat and eat.

My question for you guys is this: if we are designed to store and burn fat and alternate from using ketones and glucose as our fuel source, then isn’t this an argument for cycling in and out of ketosis on a regular basis? Since getting keto-adapted takes about 4-6 weeks for most people, why wouldn’t doing 11 months of keto with one month of a non-ketogenic diet be better than eating keto 24/7/365? I have not found any studies on this and I would imagine the change in diet would be good for the body to serve as reset for just one month a year. I know yo-yo dieting is bad for your overall health and that there is a risk of a relapse to your old ways when you get off of keto that could prevent you from going back to it again. But there might be real benefits to this as it probably better resembles how our ancestors evolved in their nutrition and may help reset your body to get better results after long-term ketosis. What do you think?

HIGH-FAT LOW-CARB, PERFECT MACROS NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

KETO TALK MAILBOX   - Why does my health seemingly deteriorate when I go too low on carbs and improves again when I add back in rice and other carbohydrates?   Hey Jimmy and The Doc, I’m loving my new lifestyle change using fasting and a ketogenic diet to address my Hashimoto's and weight loss concerns. I started on New Year’s Day this year and I’m already down 44 pounds and feel fantastic most of the time. However, I have noticed that if I fast too much or keep my carbohydrate intake too low over a week that my health deteriorates with an increase in my level of fatigue, slower metabolism, severe depression, and thyroid symptoms rearing their ugly head. In my research into this, it all seems to point to reverse T3 levels which I’ve found is fixed when I eat a bowl of rice and start eating more carbs again. So how do I continue to lose weight, improve my health, and keep feeling great eating keto without these unwanted side effects?

– 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.

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,

HEALTH HEADLINES:

Jimmy and Will answer your questions:

– Why do I have a persistent itch ever since I started eating keto? What else can I try to try to deal with this?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I have dealt with an extremely annoying itch all across my back, shoulders, and inside my arms ever since I started eating a ketogenic diet. I’ve tried eating no dairy, but the itching persists. I stopped taking as much of my vitamin C, but that didn’t solve the problem either. I highly suspect this is coming from oxalate dumping in my body as I eat lots of almond butter, almond milk, and raspberries as a keto dieter over the past seven months. I used to be vegan and added back in red meat after years of not eating it to help with my kidney health. Any suggestions about how to deal with this annoying itch?

Thanks for listening,

– Why would I experience cramping, bladder pain, and diarrhea when I eat a ketogenic diet?

Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I was eating a keto diet and loving along with my husband, but I started developing some cramping pain in my bladder and diarrhea as well as feeling an urgency and a burning sensation when I went to the bathroom. I went to see my doctor who gave me antibiotics and I saw only marginal improvement so we switched medications. This song and dance went on for about a month or so, but I decided to go off of keto to see if that would help. I slowly started feeling better from the bladder pain, but I sure miss the benefits I was getting from it. What could be causing this in my ketogenic eating plan?

Thank you for your wisdom and help.

– What impact is my Primary Hyperparathyroidism having on my elevated blood pressure and weight loss challenges while eating keto?

Hey guys,

I’m a 63-year old woman diagnosed with Primary Hyperparathyroidism one year ago. I have doing strict keto for the past six months with a few slip-ups during the holidays. I have lost 40 pounds and about 20 inches off my body with another 25 pounds of weight loss to go. The pain related to this disease has eased up since I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but blood pressure has still remained elevated requiring me to take medication. How is this disease impacting the blood pressure and my ability to shed the rest of the weight off my body?

A thankful Ketonian,

Witmer

3. Why did I get ravenously hungry when I reduced my protein intake and raised my dietary fat consumption?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I hear you guys talk about moderating protein and eating a higher percentage of fat in the diet to be keto. I’ve been eating this way for about a year and have lost a total of 95 pounds and getting stronger each day. I’ve been consuming around 130g protein daily and stalled out in my weight loss efforts at 220 pounds. I dropped my protein down to 90g and raised my fat to 285g attempting to eat this in an 8-hour feeding window (16 hours of intermittent fasting). It went well for a couple of days and helped me break my stall. But then out of nowhere I started having ravenous hunger like I haven’t experienced before being in a state of ketosis. I workout six days a week, so I’m very active. Do I need to raise my protein back up again to help produce satiety with my keto meals? Any help or advice you can give is appreciated.

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

– Could spacing out your meals allow for more wiggle room for a keto dieter to consume more carbohydrates than 50g in a day and stay ketogenic?

Hi guys,

I have been keto for many years and am curious about the role of timing my consumption of carbs each day. I generally try to stay at 20-30g daily and never go over 50g, but I wonder what would happen if I ate 40g carbs each in three meals spaced out enough during the day to be cleared by the next meal if I could get to 120g of clean carbohydrates and still be in ketosis. Is there any research that has looked at this? I’ve personally seen it happen in me consuming as many as 150g carbs in a daily strategically spaced out and still showing solid ketone readings. I believe this is something that should be explored that perhaps seasoned low-cabers could be ingesting more than the standard no more than 50g carbs daily.

Thanks for talking about this.
