When our host Jimmy Moore decided to start a brand new Thursday podcast in January focused exclusively on the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet, he suspected there would be an audience for it. But little did he and his hand-chosen cohost of Keto Talk–Arizona-based osteopath and certified bariatric physician named Dr. Adam Nally from “Doc Muscles”–know just how popular it would be. They answer questions from their faithful listeners with fun, playfulness, and thoroughness on a wide variety of subjects related to all things keto. If you’re not already listening, check it out on iTunes. Listen in today as Jimmy and Adam give you a taste of what their Thursday podcast is like in this special edition of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

“The body was designed to operate off of two fuels. It can operate off of sugar or fat. When you put the two together, the body stores the fat for a rainy day. It’s not the fat we’re demonizing. It’s the sugar in the presence of fat that becomes the problem.” — Dr. Adam Nally

Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in this BONUS episode:

– How can I determine how much food to eat on my keto diet?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!

I started researching the ketogenic diet a month ago and came across your podcast – I want to thank you for such invaluable lessons and tips on maintaining a great ketogenic lifestyle!

My main goal at the age of 38 is to improve my overall health and that starts with weight loss and consistent healthy meal options. I started the diet 2 weeks ago and got through keto flu pretty well with increasing my water, sodium, potassium and magnesium intake. Maintenance of ketosis has been fairly consistent, as my target carbs is less than 30gm total per day. I’ve reaped the benefits of an immediate 6-pound water weight loss, satiety and lack of cravings. I have not yet reached the point of mental clarity, better sleep and more energy though.

The only issue I’ve had is sorting out how much food to eat! I find it so difficult to stay under 70g of protein per day. I’ve calculated my lean body mass and multiplied that by 1.5-2g/kg/day, which sums up to 73-99gm/day of protein. I’ve also read that it’s more prudent for women to try and stay in the range of 50-70gm/day of protein. So if I eat 30g carbs, 70g protein and then as much fat to satiety (usually about 100g), I’m still only hitting about 1300 calories per day! My energy level throughout the day is lower now on the keto diet. Perhaps I’m still in the adjustment period, but I’m not sure if it’s macro-related or if I need to be eating more calories. What do y’all think?

Truly keto,

Mailin

Higher consumption of unsaturated fats linked with lower mortality rates

1. Is it necessary to constantly be in a state of nutritional ketosis at all times?

Hi Jimmy and Adam, I have a question for you guys. I got the impression from Steve Phinney that being in nutritional ketosis 24/7 is some type of goal we should be striving to attain. But I don’t think this stands the Paleo test of time and my own n=1 experience is that if I eat more than 4 ounces of protein then I am out of ketosis. If this is happening to me, then why did we evolve to utilize sugar as another fuel source? This just doesn’t make any sense to me. Thanks for your help!

2. Will keeping blood sugar levels high for a Type 1 diabetic inhibit getting the benefits of going keto?

Hi Jimmy and Doc,

I am a 35 year old woman with Type 1 diabetes going on 25 years. I have no long term complications, but my blood sugars have bounced up and down for years. I have a serious fear of gaining weight and have struggled with bulimia, diabulimia and over-exercise over the years. Because of my fear of low blood sugars, I tend to scale back my insulin to keep my sugars in the 160-200mg/dL range. If I decide to go keto diet, will having my blood sugars that high inhibit my progress in becoming keto-adapted and experiencing the benefits that come with it? I currently weigh around 125 pounds on my 5’4” body frame and I’d like to weigh 120 pounds. Interestingly, not one single doctor has ever recommended a low-carb or ketogenic diet for treating my Type 1 diabetes or my disordered eating disease. But I’m ready to take a serious try at the keto lifestyle.

Thanks so much for all you do!

“Whenever I’ve had MCT oil in excess, I not only have the acid reflux feeling but I get a flushing feeling where it’s burning throughout my body where it flashes in and out.” — Jimmy Moore

3. Does being in ketosis produce a burning sensation in the body?

Hello Jimmy and The Doc,

I have a question for you regarding whether there’s been any conclusive evidence that a ketogenic diet may significantly increase your body temperature to a level where you experience a burning sensation throughout your body. It’s not constant, but it can come on and leave very quickly—and it’s definitely NOT a hot flash as I’m very familiar with what those feel like. It’s almost like the warming feeling when they put iodide in your during a CT scan. I remember you blogged about this back in 2008, Jimmy, and there was no definitive answer at the time. The speculation was that it simply was an indication that the body temp had gone up. Are there any new revelations about this eight years later?

Thank you so much I look forward to your response.

KETO TALK MAILBOX:
– How would a ketogenic diet work for wrestling meets?

Hi Guys!

I’m finding from my own experience and research that eating keto works AMAZING for endurance type athletics like my long distance races.  But I’m curious how well it would do for sports that have high output for short periods of time, specifically wrestlers.  They go all out for six minutes, but will have 4-5 matches over an 8-hour period. Would a ketogenic diet be ideal for these athletes during these long haul matches spread out throughout the day of a meet or would some type of carbs be better on these days? In other words, would there be benefit if they did some carb refeeds in between matches? Or would something else work better to keep them going during these meets?

Thank you so much for your show and for helping out your fellow Ketonians!

1136: Dr. Brant Cortright Says Increase Neurogenesis For Better Brain Power

Psychology professor and author Dr. Brant Cortright is our guest today in Episode 1136 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Only recently has it been discovered that the brain produces new brain cells throughout our entire lives. This process of the rate of new brain cell growth is known by scientists as neurogenesis and it has a profound influence upon every aspect of our life. When the rate of neurogenesis is low, we see cognitive deficits and memory problems such as anxiety and stress, depression, and lowered immunity. In other words, it makes living your life very difficult. But with high rates of neurogenesis we see exactly the opposite: enhanced cognitive abilities, rapid learning, emotional resilience, protection from anxiety, stress and depression, a heightened immunity and robust health. The brain just works better. This is something a Professor of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies, brain health consultant, and author Dr. Brant Cortright from BrantCortright.com who has become enamored with nutrition and lifestyle changes that will increase neurogenesis. Dr. Cortright has outlined 4-point program for doing exactly that in his compelling new book The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle: Upgrade Your Brain, Upgrade Your Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cortright discuss the process of neurogenesis, what we are doing in our diet and lifestyle that significantly lowers the rate of brain cell growth, the massive effects of lowering and increasing neurogenesis, why a ketogenic diet is an extraordinary lifestyle shift in boosting brain cell growth, Dr. Cortright’s experience using nutritional ketosis for better brain power, a fascinating new study on how exercise boosts ketone levels which promotes the expression of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and so much more! If you care about your brain health and want to learn more about why and how to maintain a robust cranium, then this is one interview you won’t want to miss.

Most people just inherently believe that getting eight of sleep a night is what you need to be rested and healthy. But where did that come from? And, more importantly, is it true? These are just some of the questions that have always intrigued a Sunnyvale, California-based holistically-minded family and sleep medicine dentist named Dr. Mark Burhenne from AskTheDentist.com. Dr. B (as he is so affectionally referred to) has so closely examined and researched the surprising connection between your dental health and sleep that he wrote an entire book about the topic called The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox: How We Are Sleeping Our Way to Fatigue, Disease and Unhappiness. This book is designed to offer up a simple, 3-step program for attaining great sleep in ways that you have probably never thought about before so you can attain the happy and refreshed feeling you should get from a good night’s sleep.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. B discuss why a dentist is talking about sleep, the interesting connection between your dental health and a restful night’s sleep, how Dr. Weston A. Price is viewed amongst his dental colleagues, why the 8-hour sleep window is probably not ideal for all, how he can tell within a minute or two of talking with someone if there is a problem with their oral health, the indelible connection between sleep and carb cravings, the specific signs of getting poor sleep that show up in your mouth, and so much more. Is your sleep off? Did you ever stop to think it might have something to do with your teeth? If not, then don’t miss this interview with Dr. B!
