– What evidence is there that it can take 4-6 weeks for the body to become keto-adapted?
Hi Jimmy and Will,
I am such a big fan of Keto Talk and have a quick question for you guys to address. I’m in a Facebook discussion with a calories in, calories out carb-lover. He says there is no such thing keto-adaptation that takes upwards of 4-6 weeks. This fits within his narrative and I would like to rebut that if possible. Do you have any evidence from research that discusses the shift from sugar burner to fat burner and how long it can take? I remember Dr. Nally used to say that cell membrane transporters can take 4-6 weeks to optimize for optimal ketone utilization. Can you help me respond to this keto skeptic?
Thanks and best regards,

1. Why have my episodes of vertigo increased since I started eating a ketogenic diet?
Hi Jimmy and Dr. Cole,
I am very grateful for your podcasts as I find them extremely helpful to me and my family as we continue on this ketogenic lifestyle. I am a 33-year old female and was diagnosed with vertigo seven years ago. These episodes were always sporadic when they would hit every couple of years. But I’ve noticed since I started keto that these episodes are happening with greater frequency. Perhaps it coincidence that they started happening more often when I started eating low-carb, high-fat, but I’m wondering if this is something I should expect to be happening more when eating this way. In five months of keto, I’ve lost 55 pounds and feel amazing except for the vertigo issues. Any ideas you can share about this with me?
Thank you for being my keto gurus!

2. Can keto help me normalize my cortisol levels so I can stop my progressive weight gain?
Hey Jimmy and Will,
I had my metabolism tested with one of those at-home blood and saliva tests and it came back saying I have abnormally low cortisol. I tested myself because I have been rapidly gaining weight even though I follow a low-carb diet and exercise regularly. I’ll admit my low-carb diet up until lately has not been ideal because it is probably too low-fat and too high-protein. I now know better after reading Keto Clarity. Everything I have read about having low cortisol talks about it within the context of having Addison’s disease. I don’t have any other symptoms of Addison’s and I’m wondering why I’m having these low cortisol readings. Would a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet help remedy the cortisol issues? My objective is to be healthy, but I desperately want to stop gaining weight despite eating well. I have always been normal weight my entire life. Any insights you could give me are appreciated.

Have you ever discussed the relationship between histamines and the role a ketogenic can play in helping with this issue? I’ve been having terrible itching and hives and my doctor put me on Zyrtec and Zantac. But I really don’t want to take medications for this if there is hope that keto, supplements, and lifestyle changes that can improve this. Thanks so much for your help with this.

– What can a Ketonian share with their non-keto primary care physician to encourage him to learn more about a low-carb, high-fat diet?
Hey Jimmy and Dr. Cole,
I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the best cities in the U.S. for health care—Houston, Texas where the Texas Medical Center is located. But even with all of the medical schools, doctors, and health professionals in this city, I have not yet been able to find a primary care physician who has adequate knowledge about keto within a reasonable driving distance of my home. Like most of us Ketonians, I will likely need to do what I can to educate my current primary care physician about the ins and outs of a low-carb, high-fat, keto approach. Do you have any suggestions about how I can begin this process with my doctor in the very limited 10ish minutes I have with him as a patient? What specific information can I convey to my doctor that would make a positive initial impression about keto to encourage him to learn more? What are the key points to underscore and what should I never NOT talk about because it would immediately trigger a negative response? Or is all of this an exercise in futility? Help!
Thank you for a great podcast.
