Keto Clarity (the benefits of low-carb, high-fat lifestyle)

By

Keto

I always won­dered how can I burn fat effi­ciently using sci­ence. So I recently came across this book Keto Clar­ity which blew my mind.

Keto­sis, in gen­eral, kept com­ing up in my space. I heard the word sev­eral times from sev­eral friends. Finally I got the book to find out what this keto­sis is all about. Let me tell you, it’s quite inter­est­ing. That is why I decided to run a lit­tle exper­i­ment. I love chal­lenges! So I chal­lenged myself to induce nutri­tional keto­sis in my own body.

So what is keto­sis? Nutri­tional keto­sis pro­duces higher blood ketones and lower blood sugar, oppose to dia­betic ketoaci­do­sis where both blood ketones and blood sugar are ele­vated to extreme high level.

Ketones them­selves are a great, and in many tissues-such as the brain-far bet­ter, fuel source than the alter­na­tive of glucose.”

Keto­sis is also an excel­lent way to lose body fat. Ketones are merely a by-product of burn­ing fat for fuel. In other words, burn­ing fat gen­er­ates ketones at the same time. When you are keto-adapted, you gen­er­ate energy from your body fat and dietary fat. How­ever, when you con­sume excess car­bo­hy­drates, it turns into body fat, which can­not be eas­ily accepted for fuel. To be in a keto­genic state– it’s said to be in fat burn­ing “nir­vana.” Keto­sis causes your body to switch from sugar-burner to fat-burner. When you are keto-adapted, your energy level comes from body fat and the fat you consume.”

Ben­e­fits of Keto­sis are:

Nat­ural hunger and appetite con­trol, effort­less weigh loss and main­te­nance, men­tal clar­ity, rest­ful sleep, nor­mal­ized metab­o­lism, sta­bi­lized blood sugar, insulin sen­si­tiv­ity, lower inflam­ma­tion, feel­ing hap­pi­ness, low­ered blood pres­sure, low­ered bad cho­les­terol, end­less energy, elim­i­na­tion of heart­burn, bet­ter fer­til­ity, increased sex-drive, improved immune sys­tem, slowed aging, improved mem­ory, reduced acne, repaired skin con­di­tion, faster and bet­ter recov­ery from exer­cise, decreased anx­i­ety and mood swing.

So here is my experiment:

I got a Ketone Meter ($20) with Ketone sticks ($50/10) from Ama­zon. I mea­sure my ketone level every morning.

I started the keto diet on Mon­day 8/25/14. My keto level was 0.2mmol/L which is way below the opti­mal zone. This morn­ing Wednes­day 8/27/14 it was 0.3 mmol/L The goal is to have a num­ber between 1.5-3mmol/L.

This is very inter­est­ing since I always thought I was a fat burn­ing machine. Num­bers don’t lie. I super excited to see the num­bers growing.

  • Below 0.5 mmol/L is not con­sid­ered “keto­sis”. At this level, you’re far away from max­i­mum fat-burning.
  • Between 0.5–1.5 mmol/L is light nutri­tional keto­sis. You’ll be get­ting a good effect on your weight, but not optimal.
  • Around 1.5 – 3 mmol/L is what’s called opti­mal keto­sis and is rec­om­mended for max­i­mum weight loss.
  • Val­ues of over 3 mmol/L aren’t nec­ces­sary. That is, they will achieve nei­ther bet­ter nor worse results than being at the 1.5–3 level. Higher val­ues can also some­times mean that you’re not get­ting enough food. For type 1 dia­bet­ics, it can be caused by a severe lack of insulin, (see www.Dietdoctor.com)

I have been eat­ing a very high fat, low-carb and mon­i­tored amount of pro­tein diet. By using the Ketone Meter I can see my pro­gres­sion. My goal is to move to 1.5–3 mmol/L ketone level.

Here is one recipe from the book:

Jimmy Moores Keto Eggs:

3 thick slices bacon or 2 sausage patties

1/4 cup grass-fed but­ter or coconut oil

4–5 pas­tured eggs

sea salt

1/4 cup grass-fed, full-fat cheese

3 T sour cream

1/2 avo­cado
