– Should I switch my keto diet over to a low-fat, whole foods, organic diet when I’m in the midst of my period?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Going keto has made me view the whole world of nutrition from a new angle. It has changed my life completely. I’m a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer and found the research on ketogenic diets so fascinating since it was not a major focus in my education. I used to have severe acne, long and arduous monthly cycles, excess weight that I couldn’t shift, and regular bouts of depression. Even on a real foods-based Paleo diet, I couldn’t figure out why my health was less than optimal.

Now I’m happily eating keto, but I noticed during my period that I come out of ketosis rather easily and see a corresponding weight gain from it. I know this is pretty common as you’ve mentioned on a previous episode, but I worry that coming out of ketosis leads to a spike in insulin followed by fat storage of the dietary fat I am eating rather than using it for fuel. This makes me think perhaps it’s best for me to veer back to my low-fat, whole foods, organic diet during my period. Does that make sense to do that? Or is there any other way I can get around it?

I want to be able to advocate and share this diet with my future clients and would appreciate your thoughts and wisdom.

All the very best,

Charlotte

1. Does a ketogenic diet lower leptin levels too much and slow your metabolism? Do only 1% of keto dieters stick with it over the long-term?

Greetings Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

My wife and I have been living the keto lifestyle for nearly two years with awesome success. I follow a trainer who has given me gobs of exercise advice that has been mostly great, but some of it a little strange. I received an email from him where he mentioned keto and specifically how it affects the female metabolism. My wife and I watched the video and we were very turned off, disgusted, angry, and confused, to say the least. Ultimately, the infomercial was a guy named Brad Pilon who pointed to leptin and how keto turns off this hormone and slows the metabolism. He also pointed to sustainability as being the biggest reason people cannot stick with keto claiming that less than 1% stick with it. Anyways, I don’t know if you could address these issues on your show, but we are certainly not concerned about living keto. I know it is next to impossible to combat all of the “anti-keto” rhetoric that’s out there, but this one definitely needs a response. Thank you for taking the time to read my rant and for all you do for us Ketonians.

2. Why does eating vegetables kick me out of ketosis? Why am I still hungry eating keto now that breastfeeding my baby has slowed down?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

Thanks for such a great podcast. I’m a 33-year old full time working mom with a 3-year old and a 14-month old. I started my ketogenic journey about a year ago to shed my baby weight and now I’m pretty lean with a BMI of 19.5. I have two questions for you guys. I use a breath ketone monitor to make sure that I’m in ketosis and I’ve noticed that my carb tolerance is very low. Eating just 5-6 pieces of broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or any other keto-friendly vegetables completely knocks me out of ketosis for upwards of 24 hours. I only seem to tolerate spinach but I worry that I will not get enough micronutrients if I can’t eat more vegetables than that. I aim for 12-15 servings of fat per day and I always eat when I’m hungry.

This brings me to my second question—why am I always hungry on keto? At first I thought it was perfectly normal because I breastfed my baby severals times a day for 13 months. But now that I’ve cut down on the breastfeeding sessions to only two small feeds per day, I’m still very hungry all the time even when I know I’m in ketosis. Do I have to stop breastfeeding completely to start experiencing appetite suppression or could the fact that I’m lean make me hungrier because I don’t have a lot of available body fat for my body to use for fuel?

From what I know, I’m not pre-diabetic or anything. I am hypothyroid and take 75mcg of Synthroid daily. I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old and starving myself on a low-carb, low-fat diet so I would like to work with my doctor to see if I can come off the medication now that I eat healthy. Thanks again for a fantastic show and for answering my questions.

3. Why am I experiencing edema when my body is in a state of ketosis? Why does it disappear when I add in more carbs to get out of ketosis?

Hi guys,

I’m a 62-year old female, weight 145 pounds on my 5’8′ body and started on the ketogenic diet in June 2017. It took me four months to reach therapeutic levels of blood ketones and become keto-adapted. I have cycled in and out of ketosis three times since that time for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then in January. I closely monitor my blood ketones and noticed something strange started in my body. I now experience significant edema in my face with bagging eyelids, swollen hands, and swollen ankles. I noticed when I get out of ketosis, the edema disappears. Why is ketosis seemingly causing this edema?

I went Paleo in 2011 after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and managed it pretty well with diet, supplements, taking thyroid hormone (compounded T3) as well as an estrogen patch and progesterone. I love the energy I’ve experienced on keto, but I don’t like this edema. I’ve been tinkering with thyroid medication and adding in more electrolytes and water, but nothing has seemed to help. The only thing that seems to work is cycling in more carbohydrates like sweet potato, squash, and starchy vegetables. Can you explain to me what’s going on here? I want all the benefits ketosis gives me, but the edema is too much to handle.

– How exactly does a ketogenic diet bring about healing in the body once you become fat-adapted?

Hey Jimmy and Will,

I’ve been thinking a lot about a topic for you guys to talk about that could be a great discussion. We also talk about how the body starts the healing process after becoming fat-adapted from eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat because of the insulin and inflammation-lowering effects that come from being in a ketogenic state. But what does your body actually do when insulin and inflammation levels go down? How exactly is the body healing? I think this would be interesting to hear for all of us Ketonians striving to eat this way to heal the damage that’s been done. Thanks for your awesome podcast!

The LLVLC Show (Episode 1366): Kristen Ulmer Helps You Master The Art Of Fear

Unlimited Measurements For Up To Two Users

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

In Episode 1366 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have an interview with Fear specialist Kristen Ulmer as our guest today. Kristen Ulmer from KristenUlmer.com is thought leader, master facilitator and fear specialist who radically challenges existing norms around the subject of this deeply misunderstood emotion. Starting out as a mogul specialist on the US Ski team, Kristen more notoriously became recognized as being the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for enormous cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents, she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other danger sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking, and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most extreme woman athlete in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.

Listen in today as Jimmy an Kristen talk about her transition to thought leader on Fear came in 2012, the day she realized that most of her client’s problems –such as underperforming, insomnia, PTSD, panic attacks, excessive anxiety, depression, excessive anger, excessive fear, indecisiveness and more, were quickly and permanently resolved once she helped them address their avoidance of fear, strategies for dealing with fear, and much more.

“Fear usually manifests itself as discomfort in the belly and we sometimes try to cover that discomfort with food. That food distracts us from the cause of the fear and prevents us from addressing it.” – Kristen Ulmer

The Nutritional Pearls Podcast (Episode 8): PROTEIN – Facts, Roles Of Amino Acids, And Food Sources

YOUR NEW KETO DIET ALLY

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: Paid sponsorship

Welcome to The Nutritional Pearls Podcast! Focusing on topics that include digestion, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, supplementation, electrolytes, stomach acid, and so much more, “The Nutritional Pearls Podcast” features Christine Moore, NTP and is hosted by Jimmy Moore, host of the longest running nutritional podcast on the Internet.  Sharing nuggets of wisdom from Christine’s training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Jimmy’s years of podcasting and authoring international bestselling health and nutrition books, they will feature a new topic of interest and fascination in the world of nutritional health each Monday. Listen in today as Christine and Jimmy talk all about protein in Episode 8.

Here’s what Christine and Jimmy talked about in Episode 8:

1. Review of Nutrient Classes:
A. Water
B. Macronutrients
1. Proteins=18% of the body
2. Fats=15% of the body
3. Carbohydrates=2% of the body
C. Micronutrients
1. Minerals=4% of the body
2. Vitamins=1% of the body
2. Facts about proteins
A. They make up about 18% of the body
B. They are the building blocks of our body
C. The human body uses about 50,000 different proteins to form 4 different things:
1. Nerves
2. Muscles
3. Organs
4. Flesh
D. Some proteins have specialized functions like
1. Enzymes which help with all biochemical processes
2. Some proteins are antibodies. Antibodies help to fight infection and destroy foreign invaders
that get into the body.
E. Proteins are essential for normal growth.
F. The help form hormones which help with regulation of metabolism and plays a role in just about
every important function of the body.
G. Some are hemoglobin. Hemoglobin contains red bloods cells which help deliver oxygen
throughout the body.
H. Proteins are needed for the blood to clot.
I. Proteins even help control the pH of the tissues and blood
J. Animal proteins are our only source of COMPLETE proteins. Proteins from animals contain all
of the essential amino acids needed PLUS many that are nonessential, meaning the body can
make those. Vegetables only contain incomplete proteins, meaning they do not have all the
essential proteins our bodies need. The 2 best sources of vegetable proteins are legumes and
cereal grains, neither of which we consume on a ketogenic diet.
K. Proteins cannot be properly utilized without sources of animal fat. This is why you see protein
AND fat in eggs, milk, fish, and meats.
L. Our ancestors ate mostly meat (nose to tail) and SUPPLEMENTED their diets with vegetables,
fruits, nuts, and seeds.
1. Our best source of zinc is from animal products
2. Usable vitamin B12 only occurs in animal products
M. A high protein, low fat diet can cause problems
1. Causes too rapid of growth
2. Causes depletion of vitamin A and vitamin D and some minerals, too.
N. Red meat contains cysteine which is essential for a healthy immune system.
O. The sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine is also needed for making glutathione, which is a
powerful antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage.
P. Those 50,000 proteins combine to make 22 different amino acids and the amino acids are
broken down into 4 different classes of amino acids
1. 10 Essential-the body can’t make these so we have to get them from outside sources.
2. 10 Nonessential-the body can make these.
3. 7 Conditional-the body can usually make these under normal circumstances, but a sickness or
stress might cause the body to not be able to make them.
4. 2 Nonstandard-these are not found in the human body but in a gutless marine worm

List of Amino Acids

1. Essential Amino Acids
2. Nonessential Amino Acids
3. Other Amino Acids
A. Isoleucine
A. Alanine A. Carnitine
B. Leucine
B. Asparagine B. Citrulline
C. Lysine
C. Aspartic Acid
C. Gamma-aminobutyric acid

D. Methionine
D. Cysteine D. Glutathione
E. Phenylalanine
E. Glutamine
E. Ornithine
F. Threonine F. Glutamic Acid
F. Taurine
G. Tryptophan
G. Glycine G. Cystine
H. Valine
H. Proline
I. Histidine
I. Serine
J. Arginine J. Tyrosine-thyroid function

Q. Roles of amino acids
1. Forming proteins
2. Helping with neurotransmitter production
3. Muscle production
4. Hormone production
5. RNA and DNA regulation.
3. Sources Of Protein
1. Fish and seafood that is wild caught. These should be mainly smaller fish to help prevent exposure
to heavy metals
2. Beef, lamb, buffalo, elk, goat, and more that is organic and 100% grass fed and grass finished
3. Poultry like chicken, turkey, and duck that is also organic and 100% pasture raised, and eggs
4. Dairy products from animals that are 100% pasture raised and organic. These include full fat
cheeses, full fat cottage cheese, full fat raw milk and cream, full fat yogurt and full fat, grass fed
butter.
5. Nuts and seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts, pili nuts,
and pistachio nuts that have been soaked and sprouted

Note: These Amino Acids are not used as building blocks within the body but are still important.

4. Nonstandard Amino Acids (Not found in the human body)
A. Selenocysteine-discovered in 1986
B. Pyrrolysine-discovered in 2002 (found in a gutless marine worm)

Nutritional Pearl for Episode 8:
Protein is essential in the right kind and the proper amounts.

“Everyone is different, so you really need to test to find out what your ideal protein level is.” – Christine Moore, NTP

“Every single one of the essential amino acids are found in animal products, especially red meat.” – Jimmy Moore

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

Hi Keto Talk,

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

Thanks,

Laura

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

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

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

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

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

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

Kind regards,

Stacey

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

Hi guys,

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

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

Thank you!

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

Hi Jimmy and Will,

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

Much appreciated!

KETO TALK MAILBOX

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

Dear Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

People sometimes talk about burning fat and burning ketones in the same breath as though they were more or less the same thing, but don’t think that’s quite the case, is it? Let me describe what I think is roughly going on and then please correct me where I am wrong: Assuming blood insulin levels are low enough, fat can be released from the adipose cells. It was in the adipose cells in the form of triglycerides and after release, it is converted into free fatty acids and then the glycerol part is converted into glucose. The free fatty acids go via the blood and can be used in the muscles directly as fuel, for example. Some of the free fatty acids make it to the liver and can be converted to ketones, some of which are used to fuel the brain, and probably can
also fuel the muscles and other parts of the body. Now, in some descriptions, I see ketones being described as byproducts of fat metabolism which I assume means that first the fatty acids are burned for fuel and then ketones result as a byproduct of this metabolism. Is that correct, and if so, can those ketones also be used as fuel? If so, it implies that fat is indeed a super fuel because it can be used twice so to speak. So then what is the biochemical result of burning ketones? Keep in mind that I am seeking, if possible, a reply that is understandable to a layperson like myself but also one which does not oversimplify the science if that’s humanly possible.

Many thanks in advance,

Mike

In Episode 1364 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have an interview with Physician and exercise physiologist Dr. Sarah Hallberg as our guest today. Dr. Sarah Hallberg from VirtaHealth.com is the medical director at Virta Health. She is also the medical director and founder of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at Indiana University Health Arnett and an adjunct professor of clinical medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr Hallberg is a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Obesity Medicine, and The American Board of Clinical Lipidology and is a Registered Exercise Physiologist by the American College of Sports Medicine.

Listen in today as Jimmy talks with Sarah about her year long study, sustainability, the fact that people can maintain a ketosis for longer periods, not just a few months, using BHB as a method to track patient adherence which makes this a more reliable study than all the nutrition studies that use food logs, the role of blood tests, remotely supporting patients, and much more.

“I think it goes back to physician education and the fact that doctors get bogged down with paperwork and things that have nothing to do with patient interaction.” – Dr. Sarah Hallberg
