I Went 100 Percent Carb-Free for a Month: Here’s What Happened
- Is an insulin sensitive person always in ketosis? Why do ketones go up post-meal? Are they burning both fat and glucose simultaneously?
Hello Jimmy and Doc Muscles,
This is such a great podcast with down-to-earth, balanced, science-supported factual information about the use of a ketogenic lifestyle for healthy living. There is so much conflicting information out there and I trust you guys to keep things straight. I am fortunate to have changed my diet before any loss of insulin sensitivity. For the past couple of years, my husband and I have consumed a real foods-based Paleo template diet with moderate carbohydrate intake since we don’t have to be as careful about carb amounts as others since we are at a healthy normal weight. I am grateful for this! We do intermittent fasting and I consume one BIG lunch meal while my husband has two meals plus an evening snack. I never get more than a little hungry.
I’ve always assumed with consistent energy levels and a general lack of hunger that I was burning fat for fuel and making ketones. But after hearing you guys underscore the importance of testing for ketosis just to make sure and not assume, I got a Ketonix breath ketone analyzer. I’ve been using it to test the impact of food, exercise, and fasting on blood sugar and ketones. I've never had a Ketonix reading below 45 and it's even gotten into the 70s. We pushed it one night having a 3-ounce sugary chocolate bar and two hours post-prandial my blood sugar was back to 91 and ketones at 59. I love insulin sensitivity!
Here are my questions for you guys that I think other insulin-sensitive people may want to know about: Does it mean that I’m actually in ketosis all of the time when my blood sugar and ketones come back into line so quickly? And why do my ketones go UP after meals? You’d think the increase in blood sugar would diminish ketone production, but they always go up post-meal. Is it possible my body is so accustomed to burning fat for fuel that I’m burning BOTH fat and glucose simultaneously?
Thank you for helping everyone understand the benefits of being in a state of nutritional ketosis. You guys are terrific! Thanks so much for answering my questions.

Diet ‘reverses diabetes in just 10 weeks’, claims new study
1. Does having an APOE genotype of 3/4 make eating a ketogenic diet impossible because of cardiovascular risks?
Hi Jimmy and Adam,
Thanks so much for Keto Talk. As a Masters of Nutrition student in Australia, I've been finding it fascinating mainly because as I'm learning more and more about nutrition, physiology, hormones and the body's response to different nutrients, the more a ketogenic diet just makes sense, especially for diabetes and obesity patients. I'm dumbfounded by how doctors treat insulin-resistant patients by giving them insulin, it just doesn't make any sense. The more I learn, the more I'm personally drifting away from what they're teaching me at Uni.
I currently eat a whole foods diet consisting mainly of non-starchy veggies, moderate protein and higher fat than the standard diet. I've not yet dabbled into keto yet, but I am interested in trying it for the mental clarity everyone talks about as well as helping me deal with some psoriasis. I have a question for you guys about my genes impacting my nutritional choices. I am an APOE 3/4 which supposedly puts me at high risk for cardiovascular disease and it is recommended that I eat a lower fat diet with a fat/protein/carbohydrate ratio of 20/25/55 while minimizing saturated fat and processed carbohydrates as well as consuming antioxidant-rich foods. Am I doomed to eat this way or can someone with a APOE 3/4 eat keto without putting themselves at risk for heart disease?
Thanks again for all the great work guys, keep it up!

2. Should I feel guilty about eating a ketogenic diet because of the high gas emissions produced in the creation of keto staple foods?
Hey Jimmy and Doc Nally,
I realize you both have chickens and grow your own veggies in your home garden, so your ketogenic diets are at least partially environmentally sustainable. Because of the high amount of gas emissions caused by the creation of beef, butter, and many of the other keto staples, I’m finding myself feeling guilty about consuming this diet. I realize all the information about the health benefits of keto, but I am wondering if you two could comment on the environmental sustainability of the diet and any tips for improving it?
3. Why would you want to eliminate eggs and dairy from your ketogenic diet?
Hi Jimmy and Doc Muscles,
I love Keto Talk because it provides so much clarity! I love your books Keto Clarity and The Ketogenic Cookbook because they make this life so simple! Recently I came across a book from JJ Virgin on food intolerance where she encourages people to eliminate eggs and dairy. But these seem to be a really healthy fat and one or both of these are used in almost every ketogenic recipe out there. What is your view on eliminating these and why would you do that?

- Can a ketogenic diet help with fatty liver reduction?
Hey Jimmy and The Doc,
I’m a brand new listener to your podcast and desperately need your advice. I’ve got a bariatric appointment coming up next week and have already had one abandoned gastric sleeve due to my liver starting to tear when they tried to move it. The very low-calorie diet they had me on previously (see below) was terrible and left me craving carbs all day. Would a ketogenic diet help with my fatty liver reduction?
In the last week, I have reduced my fasting glucose down from 232 to 168 by going low-carb/high-fat. I am taking a Milk Thistle supplement, BerberinePlus, Choline and Lecithin. I currently weigh 341 pounds and my psoriasis on my hand has virtually disappeared. Thanks to going keto, I have had no carb cravings in the past week. Once I have had my surgery, I plan on following low-carb/keto for life. Between the reduced appetite of the operation and ketosis, I will be unstoppable.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
