10 Unexpected Health Benefits Of Nutritional Ketosis Besides Weight Loss

It’s been a few weeks since I shared the final results of my one-year experiment of the concept of nutritional ketosis (NK). Although my public testing is now completed, I am continuing to test daily as I have been over the past year and will keep on monitoring my blood sugar, blood ketones and weight to keep the momentum going. In fact, my wife Christine is currently in the midst of doing her own 4-week experiment of nutritional ketosis to see how her numbers all look (she’s tracking all of the food she is eating as well and we’ll share the results with you after the end of the month).

While my 78-pound weight loss success over the past year that has me at the lowest weight I have ever seen in my adult life was a really awesome experience, it’s all of the other intangible and totally unexpected health benefits of NK that I’m most proud of! Check out my latest CarbSmart column entitled “10 Unexpected Health Benefits Of Nutritional Ketosis Besides Weight Loss” to see all the spectacular changes in my health and quality of life that resulted from consuming this high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb diet:

    Jimmy I’m a 66 year old male and have been researching prostate propblmes most men my age encouter. Have you done any research concerning a high fat intake and any cancer problems? I certainly would like to know. There seems to be evidence that says low fat is better for that.

    • LLVLCBlog

      I haven’t seen any solid clinical evidence associating high-fat intake with cancer.

      • But we shouldn’t rule the possibility out, right? I mean, no SOLID evidence does not mean no evidence at all, right?

        • LLVLCBlog

          I’d say inconclusive.

    Jimmy, I’ve recently found out about all of this and would like to start getting my health back! I’ve talked about this with family and friends and they all think I will “kill myself eating all that fat”. I’ve read enough to know that’s not true, and would like to have proof to show them. So, before I start eating this way, exactly WHICH medical tests should I get so that I have a baseline to compare to 6 months from now? I want to be as thorough as possible please! Thanks for your website and all your help!

      Just get a basic check-up of all of your health markers and then use that as your baseline.

        Jimmy, you don’t have a list of tests, from all the tests you’ve done? I would like to prove to my family and friends that my health has improved from what it is now (I’m really overweight and eating what’s probably standard American diet) From reading the article above, you mention CRP, A1C, and NMR Lipoprofile test. Those are the sort of things I need to know to order, what other tests should I get? (I’ll have to order them myself) Thanks if you can help out with this!

          Those are the best ones for sure.
