Has anyone else tried it?

The warden and I started it 3 weeks ago today. So far, I am 3.6lbs down and her 4.3lbs as of this morning.
Simple changes in diet, as in not eating grain based flours, instead using almond, coconut flours etc. Carbs and sugars aren't allowed and the weird thing on this is, you eat high fats foods. Lots of avocado's, good fat meats like salmon, beef and bacon is allowed too along with others. I can't even begin to explain it all, but you can Google it up for some knowledge and facts, lots of good meals to be had, and some great cook books out there. We've been finding most our recipes on Pinterest of all things.

Maybe it will benefit some of you trying to battle the bulge, or just drop that 10-15lbs or what ever your goal is.

I'll try and post updates as things move downwards on the scales. We aren't into full ketosis yet and not sure if we'll go that strong into the diet itself. So far, this has been one of the better diets with simple changes we've tried.

If this has already been discussed, feel free to delete.

I have had some clients who have done well following the Keto plan however they found it best to cycle off after about 6 weeks and then back on after a 2 week break or so.

In addition, I had to counsel a client who had heart disease and countless cardiac issues on both sides of the family. Counter productive to introduce a high fat intake fueling program for someone with a history of heart issues. We agreed to: 1. Increase fluid intake daily - main source to be water; 2. Eat breakfast; 3. Decrease portion sizes; 4. Eat every 2 hours; 5. Walk or other measureable activity a minimum 3X/week.

He lost 2 pant sizes...

Clear liquors are ok with club soda or tonic, in moderation of course.

Don't just pay attention to the carbs. You've got to watch out for all the other things that can get you into trouble too. Even though you're doing keto, you still want to limit your fats. Pay special attention to trans and saturated fats. You can get into trouble with those quickly. Cheese is my weak spot. I'd also recommend targeting low-carb foods that are high in HDL cholesterol. Almost by default, you can overwhelm your system with LDL cholesterol (the bad stuff). Leaning heavier on HDLs will help mitigate that. Avocados are great for this.

All I know is it's popular in the Trail and Ultra Running world. If they can run 100 miles on that diet, you will do fine! From what I am reading, you have to get to the point you start burning fat instead of carbs. Training your body to do what you want.

It's another diet with a cool name.....all diets cut out something....you just pick which food you don't mind missing out on.

For me.....I run a LOT so I can enjoy carbs and some sugars. smile

Keto is short for Ketosis - very simple - no sugar, no grain.

This is exactly what I started late in September - down 30 pounds and feel as good as I have in years.

If I were an elite athlete there is no way I would chose this diet...not the case. I am a 55 year old man that got a bit over weight and really my body does not process sugar well. So I moved to a no sugar no grain diet. I follow Vinnie Tortorich on twitter (google #nsng) - he is a bit crewd but really is spot on with what he recommends if you are trying to get to a sustainable weight and and eating program.

Meats - fat content is not an issue
Veggies - most veggies are good - some have a lot of lectins which is a whole additional topic - I have cut lectins out as much as possible also
Fruits - berries and low sugar fruits - juices are for the most part glorified sugar drinks so I don't drink them
Nuts - Almonds, Walnuts, Macadamia Nuts are the best
Legumes - I will eat small amounts of legumes or beans...full once again of lectins - so my chili has no beans
ole
Dairy - I eat full fat dairy everything - extra heavy whipping crème is the bomb in coffee! No reduced fat as your body is fooled by this stuff and in many cases processes it just like sugar.

No artificial sweeteners - NONE, which I love - those are all poison IMO.

Stevia is made from real sugar I use it occasionally.

Very interesting discovery - Tortorich talks about how sugar creates hunger in a vicious cycle - after 10 days of no sugars and no grains I could feel my body change...I felt terrible for about two days and once I got through the Keto-Flu I have never looked back. I crave no sugar. Sat in an Italian place Saturday had veal, cauliflower and roasted veggies and did not crave pasta - Pasta used to be my very favorite carb (along with craft beer).

Alcohol - I drink Bourbon on Ice or Gin/Vodka Topo-Chico and real lime juice (from a lime). I do miss my beer and will have a few when I get to my goal of 210. 10 pounds to go.


This is not adkins in any way stretch or form. No grain...atkins is full of grains and fake sugar.

This. You have to make lifestyle changes and no one can do this the rest of their life. Plus huge health risks. Your body is built to run on carbs, protein and fats and it's all about portion control and exercise. Hopefully you all got your doctors approval before doing this and routine blood work to check your LDL levels which most likely will rise into unhealthful levels causing a whole different set of problems.

No. Ketosis is a lifestyle change. The purpose of Keto is to alter the way that your body produces energy. Atkins is a short term diet program that consists of four phases. The first phase is the most restrictive (some users may experience Ketosis) and where most people see their greatest weight loss. As you progress through the program additional sources of carbs are added and you lose the Ketosis.

There are safer ways to do it than this however. Best advice is see a registered dietitian who can map a plan that works best for your body/situation.

No argument here. I’m only pointing out that Keto and Atkins are not the same thing nor should they be represented as the same thing.

I go keto in the spring. Get off those 10-15# i put on over the winter. 6 weeks and hard work at the gym sheds it quick. then I just eat healthier and keep sugar out of my diet and I do not gain it back. If you do it. the keto flu kicks my butt. Take a magnesium supp (250mg morn, noon and night) and use a MCT oil supplement. really helps with the 5 days of discomfort.

This is the root of it all. Calories in and calories out. Find that balance and you are golden. Take in too much "fuel" and you don't burn it...it goes into the fuel tank...aka fat. It's so simple people often overlook it.

Another reason to work out and burn calories!! Take it outdoors and enjoy the gifts!

The only way to keep the weight from coming back is once you reach your target weight, start and slowly ramp up eating healthy carbs again but monitor how many grams you eat every day. Then also weigh yourself every day and as soon as you gain one pound determine how many carb grams you ate a couple of days before and that is your "target". If you never eat more than that amount of carbs you should never gain weight. For some people that "target" is very low. Mine is about 35 grams a day.

Keto is a fad diet. I'd wager a majority of people on the diet never really reach ketosis. You can buy test strips on amazon for less than 10 bucks to confirm this for yourself. When you think you are in Ketosis [censored] on the test strip and it'll tell you to what degree. What you'll find is that you are not in fact in ketosis. Truly getting in ketosis requires extremely strict adherence to the diet coupled with multi-day fasts for most folks in most cases.

Sure you'll lose weight just like you would with Adkins. As others have stated though, it's just not sustainable for most people over the long haul. Diets that work with extremes are generally a bad idea.

The key is just calories in - calories burned. Create a 3500 calorie deficit for every pound you want to lose on a weekly basis. I'm down 27lbs since the start of the year. I'm going light on carbs, booze, and sugar. I'm also getting in some solid cardio 6 days a week.

Completely agree! I am just starting the cardio and plan on doing this 5 hours a week on my rowing machine. Next will be my bike...I am looking forward to that!

I love me some cardio. I love that feeling after a good cardio workout when you have sweat pouring off your head and arms, t shirt drenched and a lot of miles under your feet.

How are you guys doing on the keto? Still on it?

This is day 5 for me and I'm being super strict. No more than 1400 calories/day with 5% carb, 75% fat, 20% protein. Day 4 was really rough and the meal planning is a huge pain. But I've been in ketosis since day 1 (used a 17 hr fast to kickstart) and am finally starting to feel better. I'm curious if those of you who started it are still going strong or if you went off and gained anything back.

3 pounds in 3 weeks??

When i was working i would sweat 10 pounds in a day.

Thought this miracle was fast weight loss.

Like any diet pill ever invented it has a diet to go with it. Try the diet alone for three weeks and see how much you lose. That's a challenge

I am a month in and down about 18 lbs. I lose about a pound a day except for days that I drink several beers I don't lose anything but don't gain either. I have not been keeping close track of calories or carbs but my wife does and she is losing more weight than me, but she doesn't drink beer.
I found some vodka drinks that I really like but I LOVE beer. So far so good, my clothes are getting loose and I feel good. At 5 days in I felt drained and sick but it only lasted about 2 days, maybe getting into ketosis I don't know. Now if I don't eat something every 4 or 5 hours I start feeling bad and stomach hurts, I am not sure why. Also the higher fiber foods make me feel way better than eating lots of meat and cheese.

The keto diet has been shown to work short term for cosmetic reasons but time and research have proven that it is not a sustainable alternative for healthy weight loss or health in general.

I understand what you are saying about it being an unhealthy way to lose weight but being 300 lbs with high blood pressure at age 35 is not very good for my liver, kidneys or heart either. My overall goal is to use this diet "fad" to get down to my goal weight and hopefully be able to maintain that weight. With a healthy diet that includes some carbs and a good exercise program I believe it is possible. At 6'2" and 300 lbs I am not really worried about losing lean muscle mass. I am not sure some of you understand the diet completely anyway. I don't really eat any more meat than I did before, just lots more vegetables. I eat a salad at least one meal a day and have replaced potatoes with vegetables as a side dish to grilled lean meat. I have eaten no refined sugar or fried foods in a month and have started exercising several times a week because I feel good enough to do so. So I am not sure what is so unhealthy about what I am doing but it doesn't matter because it is working. I am not sure why you guys can't just say good job and move on. So to everyone on this diet that is losing weight and making it work for them I say GOOD JOB! thumb

Lake rat - My post was in response to a specific question. Each person has their own journey. I have colleagues who are registered dietitians who employ keto or a hybrid alternative for short term periods. Others utilize a derivative and multi disciplinary approach to ensure outcomes and good health along the way.

Based on the limited info you described about your fueling patternS my guess is you are not on the true keto plan anyway.

If what you are doing is working for you then of course - GOOD JOB.

I'm amazed at the side effects of the diet and they're enough to keep me going on it. The weight loss at this point is just the icing on the cake. I'm losing 3 lb per week even with a couple of days a week with higher calories. Still very strict on carbs and haven't had more than 19 grams in a day. Averaging about 13 gram/day. Haven't been out of ketosis in 15 days. Found a meal prep service in Keller that is really helping to cut down prep time. The more I research the diet the more I see the benefits. There are people who have cure auto-immune diseases with it. I can definitely feel a difference in my hormone balance. Sugar is poison.

The more I learn about weightloss the more I realize there is enormous variation in people. Age, gender, metabolic rates, genetics, food preferences, timing, medications, exercise habits, sleep patterns, even the climate they live in... Just to name a few. The reality is different things work for different people. There is no silver bullet. I'm personally of the opinion the Keto diet isn't for most people simply because it's extremely difficult to maintain over the long haul. That said, if it works for you, have at it. I agree with Lakerat above, whatever the downsides might be, it's got to be better than being fat.

I can envision a day in the future where genetic tests and blood work will be able to work out a "optimal" plan for everyone based on actual science.

Oh man, you're SO right about the variation. I'm continually amazed at what my friends can eat and not have any problem with. I follow a bunch of keto pages on social media and every single one does it a little different. And even if you figure out what works for you, it changes as you get older. I'm still bummed that I can't fast like I want to but will continue to experiment to see what works the best. thumb

Could not agree more hence the point there is not a "one size fits all" method. Your vision of 'genetic and blood test to work out an optimal plan' currently exists and yes based on your body chemistry and science. The key is researching a registered or licensed dietitian (RD and/or LD). These animals are different than a wellness coordinator, coach, or nutritionist in that they are registered and licensed through the state in which they reside/practice.

I had this done 7 years ago and it made a huge difference in my health, managing my fueling and hydration, and educating me about what works best rather than experimenting. Do I cheat? Yes...I like beer and single barrel bourbon...neither of which am I to have. I deal with the consequences when I do indulge and go on with life but the big factor is I KNOW what works for my given situation. No guess work.

This after 25+ years in the healthcare industry and "knowing better" I still chose to do my own thing until I let science and my own body tell me what it needed.

Jumping in on the Keto wagon. I don't know exactly when the wife started but I jumped in with her last week.

I cheated a little last Sunday when I had a half baked potato and a spoon of ranch beans. Mom made lunch for mom's day and I didn't want to be rude (like my wife wink ) and not eat moms cooking. I was still so full come dinner time I didn't eat. So more carbs for the day than I should, but still nothing as much as I normally would have had.

My biggest shocker of recent was noticing the amount of sugar in my plain, whole milk yogurt. With seeds/nuts, that's my breakfast almost everyday.

What are you eating for your breakfast food? Looking for some ideas.

You do not loose lean mass during ketosis. You loose water weight associated with insulin. Looks like you loose muscle mass but it is not.
Liver and kidney damage? never heard of it. I do my biometrics 2X a year and liver values were perfect and creatinine and BUN were also perfect for the kidneys.

I cannot say for diabetes as I have no knowledge of that and have done no research.

as for heart, this is from a cardiology site, not dr oz or some [censored] like that. Sorry not being argumentative. for some it is not good. For others keto is excellent and 100% safe and VERY effective.

CONCLUSIONS:
The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet. It significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients. Furthermore, it decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose, and increased the level of HDL cholesterol. Administering a ketogenic diet for a relatively longer period of time did not produce any significant side effects in the patients. Therefore, the present study confirms that it is safe to use a ketogenic diet for a longer period of time than previously demonstrated.

Truly getting in ketosis requires extremely strict adherence to the diet coupled with multi-day fasts for most folks in most cases.

Sure you'll lose weight just like you would with Adkins. As others have stated though, it's just not sustainable for most people over the long haul. Diets that work with extremes are generally a bad idea.

The key is just calories in - calories burned. Create a 3500 calorie deficit for every pound you want to lose on a weekly basis. I'm down 27lbs since the start of the year. I'm going light on carbs, booze, and sugar. I'm also getting in some solid cardio 6 days a week.
disaagre..its not a fad diet..i went on it and if you adhere to the simple philosophy of this its not a problem..im 63 and ive never felt better..ive been on it for two years and lost 45 lbs..my daughters been on it for the same time and has gone from a size 18 to a size 5 from 245 lbs to 139 and amazingly our labs are perfect..plus you dont have to use the strips they have breath analyzers that can tell you your keto..i cant stress this enough..our keto diet is proof..the dr, gave us his blessings..IT IS NOT A DIET ITS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE..EDUCATE YOURSELF!

If by fad you mean it's been around since 1920, then sure, it's a fad.

Keto isn't for everyone but just trying it for 2 months made a believer out of me. It's been proven to cure autoimmune diseases, arthritis, obesity, epilepsy, and other ailments. I would encourage anyone to do the research and just try it out for two weeks. You might be surprised at how much better you feel.

Exactly - this is no fad. Congrats!

Changed my way of eating in September and feel great! Love it. It did wipe out my red wine habit...I replaced that with tequila and all is good. Saving me a lot of money on wine - when I drink it now I feel like chit the next day.

AMEN!!!!! Congratulations for making a full blown life change that works. All of my numbers are waaaay better...blood pressure, sugar levels, liver and kidney function. Dr. was tickled when I walked in weighing far less than the last time he had seen me.

I would sincerely congratulate you on taking back your heart!

Yes!!! Currently having a whiskey drink now. 0 carbs in whiskey and if you want a mixer use Sprite Zero or Coke Zero and no problems.

How do you characterize 'no problems'? Both of those contain Aspartame.

Thanks for the follow-up and for sharing. I am meeting with my dietitian next week and have printed this to take to the appt.
