where does the 30 grams or less come from

Most people I know doing keto are on 30 grams or less. Why 30? At what point does a body stop ketosis as far as grams of carbs? I'm interested in the science is all. No problem staying at 20~30 grams so far.

Minimum amount of protein to prevent catabolization

Is there such a minimum amount of protein we should eat in order not to lose any muscle? I need to cut 10lbs and I can't exercise much due to a wrist injury, so my options are limited. Still I want to lose fat while in keto but as I'm not training and I have a sedentary job my maintenance...

sleep on keto

Alright, proper keto for 4 days. Last 2 days I wake up after 3 or 4 hours, still tired and need to wash my face or do something before attempting to go back to sleep. When I do go back to sleep it's a GOOD sleep, but I'm sure this is a bad pattern. Last week when I went low it was similar. Then...

Testosterone levels and Keto?

How does Keto affect testosterone levels? I've heard that sugar lowers testosterone but then there are others claiming test levels suffer without adequate amounts of carbs in the diet. So what's the consensus here? I might hop on this keto train soon so I'm trying to get some opinions here, all of...

Note: editing every now and then while updating foods, etc. So far this is the latest update (Sunday, 10:50pm) I think my fats are a little too high and my protein a little too low. This can easily be fixed by adding or subtracting a little bit from a certain meal, however I would like to get...

Is whey protein insulinogenic? Or insignificant?

I have been starting my day with 1 scoop (Was doing 2) whey protein and coconut oil. Was wondering if this was counterproductive for going into keto?

Keto Macros

So recently I've decided to try out the ketogenic diet (I have Lyle McDonald's book shipping as I type! :P), but I have a few questions about calculating my total calories needed and most importantly, my macros. My main goal is to gain a little bit of weight, which is why my numbers are a little...

Does 150g carbs a day warrant a refeed?

i'm cutting on 150g carbs a day, 160g protein, 70g fat = 1900 calories. Is this fine to sustain 7 days a week? or should I throw in a carb-refeed once a week?

more fat more fiber : slept better

I accidentally went over my calories for the day. Usually 2900 calories, 250 grams of fat. Today I took in just over 300 grams of fat along with some protein and fiber/carbs. Was over by about 500 calories. All the carbs were from flaxseed meal and what little was in cottage cheese. Anyways, I...

People mention beef jerky as their snack food

But i've found no beef jerky that doesn't use sugar as an ingredient. How are people eating beef jerky and still being in keto when it has sugar in the ingredients? I say in the ingredients, because having sugar on the nutrition label is different than having it in the actual ingredients (dairy...

Question about consuming oils as a primary source for dietary fat:

Oils, any type of oil, will oxidize once consumed and form free radicals in our bodies. Is this true? Some doctor was basically saying oils, even the ones considered very healthy such as olive oil and coconut oil are very detrimental to our health. He went on to say that those in the...

Question Carb up before holiday?

I've been on a cut for a longer period now, about 4 months, without carb ups and my carb intake is not the "typical" keto, but still under 60g/day. There have been some accidental cheats, but only going overboard on keto foods, no carbohydrates whatsoever. I get my carbs only from veggies and...
