    How long should you be on Keto?

    I have read somethings about Keto, and a lot of people have said because you need to keep balanced you cannot live the rest of your life on a Keto diet. You need to keep a balance between things.

    So how long should you be on a Keto diet and also what are some diets that would be recommended to switch to?

    Just so long as it doesn't cause the rest of your life to be shorter =)
    J/k, I like low carb, tho not necessarily keto.

    IMO as soon as you start to plateau due to slowing of metabolism and can't calories too much, that the time to stop
    No mater what the issue is, someone will always find a way to take it too seriously

    I've been on it for 9 months now, seeing as how great my body has responded to it I feel this will be a lifestyle for me, I don't mean I 'll stay in keto for the rest of my life, but all the carbs that I consume are accounted for. When I was researching the topic before I started I came across a few studies that supported ketogenic diet to be safe, and actually may extend your life (as long as you don't have any medical issues) i.e.. Diabetes.

    I have to say that I have heard keto is not a long-term diet. When I did keto last time my kidneys started messing up. I was weak. My work performance was horrible. I was light headed, tired and moody. Maybe some of use just need carbohydrates. I think we can be on a low low low carb diet and be healthy but keto--with all those fats? not so much. My cholesterol was through the roof--I almost got disqualified for Aviation.

    how long were you into keto when you were experiencing those symptoms? maybe you weren't fat adapted quite yet? I personally never experienced the "fogginess" that many people explain except for maybe a couple days 2 weeks into keto

    What she ^^^ said. If you were to stay on Keto for months, not weeks all the so called problems with it go away as you become adjusted to using fat for your primary energy source. Keto is NOT unhealthy, and in fact is how we evolved to eat, its good for you!

    It's the strict Atkins Induction phase type of Keto that you can't do longterm..which consists of 20g of carbs a day from greens and cheese. That's why there are "phases".

    A lot of people do "Low carb" for life once the weight loss is gone and they are just staying away from bread and stupid sh*t..they are not actually in ketosis 24/7.

    I was in complete ketosis, I was doing keto for 2 months. I actually was peeing high levels of ketones according to my UA I took for the Army. Some bodies are not meant to be without carbohydrates. We are all different and I don't consider a life without carbs a lifestyle. We need them. It's science.

    If you are going to bring science into it, I think it would prove that we DONT actually need carbs but I do agree with you that the "lifestyle" is definitely not for everyone

    isn't ketosis dangerous?

    Being in ketosis by following a low carbohydrate diet is NOT dangerous. The human body was designed to use ketones very efficiently as fuel in the absence of glucose. However, the word ketosis is often confused with a similar word, ketoacidosis.

    Ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition for diabetics, and the main element is ACID not ketones. The blood pH becomes dangerously acidic because of an extremely high blood SUGAR level (the diabetic has no insulin, or doesn't respond to insulin .... so blood sugar rises ... ketones are produced by the body to provide the fuel necessary for life, since the cells can't use the sugar). It's the high blood sugar, and the acid condition that is so dangerous. Ketones just happen to be a part of the picture, and are a RESULT of the condition, not the CAUSE. Diabetics can safely follow a ketogenic diet to lose fat weight ... but they must be closely monitored by their health care provider, and blood sugars need to be kept low, and stable.

    Being in ketosis by following a low carbohydrate diet is NOT dangerous. The human body was designed to use ketones very efficiently as fuel in the absence of glucose. However, the word ketosis is often confused with a similar word, ketoacidosis.

    Ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition for diabetics, and the main element is ACID not ketones. The blood pH becomes dangerously acidic because of an extremely high blood SUGAR level (the diabetic has no insulin, or doesn't respond to insulin .... so blood sugar rises ... ketones are produced by the body to provide the fuel necessary for life, since the cells can't use the sugar). It's the high blood sugar, and the acid condition that is so dangerous. Ketones just happen to be a part of the picture, and are a RESULT of the condition, not the CAUSE. Diabetics can safely follow a ketogenic diet to lose fat weight ... but they must be closely monitored by their health care provider, and blood sugars need to be kept low, and stable.


    We all reply based on personal experiences. While I read over and over how people on this forum live off keto diets, I cannot. I was miserable for those two months. My run time on my pt test did improve, but I went from lifting 20-25lb dumbbells to maybe 10 lb dumbbells. I had no enery, I was exhausted, tired and had a horrible immune system. When I went back on carbs, I felt so much better. Like I said, every one is different.
    It is also science that states the brain functions off of carbohydrates. Not fats. Only when in growing do people use fats to support brain function. That's why people who are on keto are usually more forgetful, sluggish, etc. Based on personal experience and the research I have done in my spare time.
    I just know that although I am doing keto, I definitely wouldn't live this way forever.

    there was a recent study in which a very low carbohydrate ‘ketogenic’ diet was tested in individuals with ‘mild cognitive impairment’ (reduced brain function associated with ageing but not severe enough to be classified as dementia) [1]. Half of the group in this study were randomised to eat the ketogenic diet, the other half ate a diet rich in carbohydrate. The study lasted 6 weeks.

    The researchers found that those eating the ketogenic diet, compared to the other group, saw significant improvement in their ‘verbal memory’ (memory of words and other abstractions involving language). Also, generally speaking, the higher their ketone levels, the better their verbal memory tended to be. The suggestion here is that ketones provide ready fuel for the brain, and may enhance ‘cognitive function’.

    Aside from memory improvement, those in the ketogenic diet also saw significant benefits in terms of weight loss and waist circumference reduction, as well as reductions in fasting blood glucose and insulin levels. Taken as a whole, these results suggest that carbohydrate restriction sufficient to induce ketosis offers, in the short term at least, significant advantages for both body and brain.


    science aside the first week of keto caused me to be tired and forgetful and everything you said but after the first week my energy sky rocketed i have a better mental focus and i feel great and when i ate carbs i always felt full and sluggish so from my experience and what i have read low carb diets are great for long term overall health the only problem is the limitation of the food you can eat but if you learn how to cook a little bit this is easy to overcome. just my input

    I plan to, it's a much healthier way to live. You don't need carbs. Our ancestors survived this way for over two million years, meat and fat are the foods the gave us larger brains and got here in the first place.
