– STUDY: Skipping breakfast may double risk of hard arteries

1. Does eating a ketogenic diet lead to abdomen and back pain as a result of high acidic urine production? Why is this happening?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Will,

Love your show! I have been experiencing a dull ache regularly in my mid to lower abdomen and back since I started keto over a year ago. Last week it started to get worse and I went to the ER to get some bloodwork, have x-rays taken, and CT scan (with contrast)—everything came back normal. The doctor’s best guess was that I have a stomach bug. This was based on deductive reasoning, which I did not buy. Today I researched this further and found this seems to be common with keto due to an acidic urine issue. Some of the remedies suggested include bicarbonate soda with Milk of Magnesia to ease the load on the kidneys. So my question for you guys is this: Do you see this in your ketogenic patients and how do you help them with it? Why is this happening?

2. How do I manage the carbohydrate cravings that come with bipolar disease do I can reduce my carbohydrate intake to ketogenic levels?

Hey guys,

I have a question for you regarding bipolar. I have it and the predictable carb cravings that go along with the disease. The theory is bipolar people crave carbs to stabilize their mood. I am currently under medicating for my bipolar and I’d love to find a more natural way to deal with this. I just started keto and dropped my carbohydrate intake from 180g to 90g daily. What can I do to get my daily carbohydrate intake to below 50g without the intense cravings that I’m experiencing from my disease?

In Peace,

3. How do you determine the right amount of calories to consume while eating a ketogenic diet?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Will,

I often hear people in the ketogenic community including you guys state to make sure you “eat enough calories.” But what does that mean? I’m a 50-year old women who engages in light exercise like walking, work a desk job and sit from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and I have NO idea how many calories to eat. Some say 1,200 while others say 2,000 which I think is pretty high. I’m so confused and frustrated because I still have at least 45 pounds to lose. While I’m not planning on counting calories, I’d like a general guideline as to what is right for me. Thanks for all your info.



– What is the idea poop for someone eating keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have been eating keto for about 8 weeks and reading everything I can find to educate myself on the low-carb, high-fat way of living. One subject I see the widest array of information on is what kind of stools you should have on keto. What is ideal when it comes to poop? Sinkers, floaters, or what? Please help!
