View Full Version : Keto diet, while natural, does it increase cortisol

I'm 6ft 205, and i just started a KETO diet for the first time,
my bodyfat is 12% and i just wanna drop to about 9%
With the keto diet, my carbs are between 40-50 from my shakes,natty PB and eggs mostly
being drug free, is this a concern for my insulin levels, because i was reading yesterday that if your natural, you need 1.5-2 times the carbs on the KETO DIETS then being enhanced, or your insulin will drop, raising your cortisol, reversing my fat loss!!
is this true?
