Sticky Thread Sticky: New to Keto? - Look Here First *Frequently Asked Questions*

One of the most frequently asked questions is regarding ketostix. Many people ask if they are still in ketosis if the stick is only showing trace amounts of ketones. My response to this question would be that you are either in ketosis or you are not. If you are only showing trace amounts that could...

Sticky Thread Sticky: A Guide to Ketosis

I first heard about keto from this board 3 or 4 years ago, so this is where it all started for me. I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

Keto endurance athletes - pre nutrition?

6 days into keto blue much more prominent veins? Why?

`So today I noticed veins on my arms, shoulders and even next to my abs (my bf% is above 20%!!!). The veins are not popping out like after a workout or after having consumed fast carbs. They're just much darker blue-green-ish and much more visible. My theory is that since insulin is a vasodilator...

Will a full body weight-lifting program 3 times per week, destroy muscle fibers?

I have a question, I am right now doing a full body weight training program on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Is this way of weight training counter-productive? And will this way of weight training, done 3 days per week lead to a loss of muscle strength on the basic weight training exercises and...

Keto-friendly meal replacement shake?

Does anyone know of one? All of the weight gainers/ meal replacement shakes that I've come across so far have carbs in them and very little fat. Moreover, I'm in college so I don't have the opportunity/time to mix my own up on a whim. If you have any ideas, thanks!

help with CKD

For the past 3-4 months I was on a SKD, and with great success. I went from 350 pounds to 290 pounds, and currently 38% body fat. During this time I had no exercise at all, other than walking most places I went. However I have now been able to get my gym membership back and have the following work...

Is Keto a good way to preserve muscle mass?

The first thing I noticed 1 week after Keto is that I lost a LOT of weight, but I think most of it was water-weight held by earlier diet's carbs. Strength stayed the same and steady fat loss began. However, I am very concerned about losing muscle... Some say keto is a great way to lose fat only and...

Consuming insufficient fat, can it stunt Ketosis?

Hey all! I have been working on my Keto diet for about 5 days now. I have been cutting most carbs (except around 20g) and have been upping my fat intake while keeping my protein intake fairly regular. So far its pretty good, I feel like I have more energy thanks to less insulin spikes but I am...

Blood Glucose Level?

Hi all, new member here. I've been doing the keto thing for about a month now and it's been going very well. I have a very substantial amount of weight to lose and so far this is the best "diet" I've ever been on. My question is this: Earlier today my brother was checking his blood sugar (he's...

Switching from Atkins to Keto, what should I know?

Hi all, I lost 75lbs on low carb last year. I started at under 50g of carbs per day and lost the first 30, the rest came off with under 20g per day. There was very little carb but really high protein. For two weeks (not consecutively) I went 0 carb and only ate meat for a week straight. Those...

Keto flu and carb cheat day

Quick question-- if I decide to include a weekly carb cheat meal, will I go through keto flu each time? If not, is it because I will not be in a true ketogenic state any longer since I will have a weekly cheat meal which will throw me out of ketosis?

Surprising carby foods that keep you in keto?

Ok maybe a pipe dream but on those carb craving days, what works for slightly upping your in-take while getting back to keto quickly? I've been craving sugary cereal. Used some TVP and wheat germ and coconut but am curious about alternatives?

Interesting -- Keto and Sugar Alcohols

So, just thought I'd share the results of my little experiment. I've been doing Keto for about 3 months, sticking to about 15 carbs a day but maxing out at 30 on my naughtier days. Throughout the process, I've been drinking a lot of diet soda (my last vice) and most mornings I grab one of the...

Thumbs down Keto ****ed up my LDL particles... what gives?

Anybody know what's going on? I've read that some people (the ones with a genetic dispostion), can't tolerate keto. I guess I'm just one of those? Here's a Flickr stream of what I was eating before the blood draw (pre July 12 photos).

Good experinces in my first year into nutritional ketosis

In the initial weeks of entering into my ketogenic diet, my weight training routine was adjusted given my body's primarily source of energy was shifting from glucose to fats as a primary source of energy. Obviously, my anaerobic metabolism for weight training was not up to par. I compensated by...

Bacon Grease vs Butter

I keep hearing butter, butter, butter, but I always recall how old school cooks used to cook in bacon or lard. I remember Waffle House was known for using lard to cook. If I recall, the 1970s was when everyone moved form lard to margarine...we Americans started paying for something we used to get...
