Ketogenic Diet Anyone Tried It ?

Recommended Posts

Wow! Great job! You're probably just experiencing "keto flu" is kind of like a detox. It shouldn't last too much longer. I would say, if you want to reap all the benefits is ketosis, you should aim for 20 net carbs per day. That will help get you deeper into ketosis and your appetite will really start to disappear. You can expect a pretty consistent 1-2 lb loss per week that way. Keep me posted! I've lost 37lbs but I'm trying to start losing again. Adding gluten back in for my celiac testing really stalled my weight loss.

Thanks.  :)  Yeah, I've been slowly leaving the keto flu behind.  My total carbs is usually between 20 and 30 except for a couple of blips.  I bought those keto stix and they say I'm usually in small to moderate ketosis.  Looks good so far.

 

This morning my fasting BG was 3.8!  I've NEVER been that low.  Ever! And I felt perfectly fine too.  :D

 

I bet adding gluten in stalled things for you!  37lbs is great!  I'll be happy with 1-2 lbs per week.  By winter maybe I'll get to what you've accomplished.

 

Have a good weekend.

Congrats! My fasting has not been that low since my diagnosis and I began tracking. I have been happy with a 5! I confess that my carbs are still probably too high. I eat too many veggies! Oh, well!

That 5 is really good!  :)  I can't get there with lots of veggies - yet.

 

That 3.8 of mine was the lowest ever.  Plus I had been for a walk the night before so that probably helped.  Usually I am a 4.4 to a 4.8.  I get 5's once week.

 

About a week ago I had "higher carb" day at about 60 g (onions and green beans at dinner) and my fasting BG was back to a 5.6.  I'll probably add more veggies back in after a few months to see if I can keep my BG at 5 or lower.

Update on me... It's all about me, ya know.  ;)

 

I'm still doing a ketogenic diet and loving it.  My hair and skin are better.  My knee OA is way better and my hip OA is somewhat better. My blood glucose levels are generally down, although my FBG has been bouncing into the prediabetic range over the last week, but I think that might partially be caused by my being sick (shingles and I think I'm getting my kids' cold). No more AI issues.  I've also lost 25 lbs in about 10 weeks, which is good for me as I was only 20lbs above my normal BMI.

 

I haven't had any blood tests done, but I'm curious to see what this has done for my triglycerides, HDL, LDL, Lipoprotein a, blood pressure, IGF-1 (was a bit high) and vitamin A (I was low in this).

 

Anyways, very low carb high fat (vLCHF) diets work well for this celiac.  :D

Hey thats great you kept it up. Ive had one break because I got very acid and some muscle wastage but now im doing better, i take whey powder for extra protien now. My kidney function more than doubled and my inflamation got less after 3 weeks in ketosis and held there since. The strange thing is  I can now tell when im going into ketosis with 100% accuracy. I can have a negative pee strip then an hour later my heart rate will increase and ill know the next strip will be maximum ketones. Im eating less meat this time. More green juice and more total protien. Mostly i notice my skin better. It seems a fail proof cure for acne.

I've added protein powder too. It does help.  :)

 

Yeah, thanks for the nudge towards the diet.  I've been really happy with it and can foresee doing it for a long while.  Thanks.  :)

 

I'm glad you are still doing well and finding what works for you too!  Neat how you are so in tine with your body now.
