Hi Maya. I LOVE your site!! Interesting, informative with fab recipes and ideas. Hubby and I have just started eating low carb and I have to say, we are not finding it too difficult and I already feel sooo much better!! I find the hardest part is choosing low carb veg, I feel as if we are not eating enough. Any suggestions on how to get more veggies into our diet?

Martina's popular KetoDiet blog has been a wonderful resource for those following a healthy paleo/primal low carb diet. Not only does she provide a wealth of information for successfully implementing a ketogenic diet, but also shares many of her own delicious low carb recipes. Her recipes have become staples for those seeking low carb alternatives for their favorite foods. This cookbook with 150 new keto diet recipes is a must for any low carb cook's collection.
The first signs of ketosis are known as the “keto flu” where headaches, brain fogginess, fatigue, and the like can really rile your body up. Make sure that you’re drinking plenty of waterand eating plenty of salt. The ketogenic diet is a natural diuretic and you’ll be peeing more than normal. Take into account that you’re peeing out electrolytes, and you can guess that you’ll be having a thumping headache in no time. Keeping your salt intake and water intake high enough is very important, allowing your body to re-hydrate and re-supply your electrolytes. Doing this will help with the headaches, if not get rid of them completely.
Hi Mel, Assuming that your ranch dressing doesn’t have sugar added, you don’t need to worry too much about limiting it, but within reason. This is my homemade ranch dressing recipe, which has 0.9g net carbs per 2-tbsp serving. It would be hard to find a store bought one with much less than that, even though some round anything less than 1g down to 0g, which isn’t truly accurate. Also, keep in mind that if weight loss is your goal, some people find that too much dairy can cause a stall. Finally, make sure you aren’t using all your “available” carbs on ranch dressing – have it with some low carb veggies!

Bagaman bihira, posible pa rin na maging buntis habang tama ang pagkontrol ng kapanganakan. Kung ikaw ay sekswal na aktibo at napansin lamang ang pagtutuklas o lumaktaw sa iyong panahon, dapat mong kontakin ang iyong doktor upang mamuno sa pagbubuntis. Ang pagsuri upang makita kung ikaw ay buntis ay lalong mahalaga kung nakaligtaan ka o nilaktawan ang dosis ng iyong gamot.Maaari kang gumawa ng test sa pagbubuntis sa tahanan, ngunit maaaring maling maling positibo at maling mga negatibo. Kung mayroon kang positibong pagsusuri sa pagbubuntis, mahalaga na simulan ang prenatal na bitamina (kasama ang folic acid) at agad na pagbisita ng doktor.
Karamihan sa mga carbohydrates ay nasa mga pagkain ng halaman, ngunit maaaring nahahati sila sa simple at kumplikadong. Ang mga pinagmumulan ng dating ay higit sa lahat ang honey at prutas, berries, pati na rin ang ilang mga gulay. Iyon ay ang simpleng carbohydrates kinakatawan ng asukal, fructose at sucrose at moltous at lactose, na kung saan ay naroroon sa mga produkto ng pagawaan ng gatas. Ang ganitong mga sugars madaling matunaw sa tubig, at ang katawan ay mabilis na sumisipsip sa kanila.

Mag-babala-baka kailangan mong dalhin ang ilang mga mint na hininga. "Ang ilang mga tao ay maaaring o hindi maaaring magkaroon ng pagbabago sa amoy ng hininga sa ketogenic diet," sabi ni Hertzler. Bakit? "Ang isa sa mga katawan ng ketone na gawa sa atay ay acetone-at nagdadala ito ng amoy," paliwanag ni Hertzler. Iyon ay sinabi, maraming mga tao na nasa nutritional ketosis ay hindi makaranas ng isang makabuluhang pagbabago sa amoy ng hininga, kaya ito ay hindi isang garantisadong epekto.
A common source of sugar in a typical American diet is sweetened beverages including sodas, sweetened teas, sports drinks, and juice. These drinks are not advised on the keto diet because they add carbohydrate without providing any valuable nutrients. Zero-calorie sweeteners are also not recommended because they can increase your cravings for sweets.
Karamihan sa mga birth control tabletas ay may mga pakete na naglalaman ng 28 tabletas bawat isa. Ang halaga ng unang tatlong linggo, o 21 na tabletas, ay naglalaman ng mga hormone. Ang halaga ng nakaraang linggo, o pitong tabletas, ay naglalaman ng mga placebo. Ang pagkuha ng iyong pill sa parehong oras sa bawat araw ay tumutulong sa mapanatili ang matatag na mga antas ng hormon sa iyong katawan. Ang mga placebos ay tumutulong sa iyo na tandaan na kumuha ng pildoras araw-araw, anuman ang oras ng buwan.
Use fat as a lever.  We’ve been taught to fear fat, but don’t! Both keto and low carb are high fat diets. Fat is our source of energy as well as satiety. The key to understand, though, is that fat is a lever on a low carb or keto diet. Carbs and protein stay constant, and fat is the one you increase or decrease (push the lever up or down) to gain or lose weight, respectively. So if your goal is weight loss, eat enough fat to be satisfied, but there’s no need to “get your fats in” once you’re satisfied.

My Husband and I started doing Keto July 2018. We got over weight after we got out of the Marine Corps. It has been hard to workout because I became disabled, but my diet was not good. After our friend Amber recommended your site and support group, we found a lot of helpful information to get us started on a successful journey. So far it’s been one month and we have lost 18 pounds each!
If you talk to keto aficionados, you’ll find many save leftovers from dinner for the next day’s lunch. Cook once, eat twice—your keto diet menu for lunch is solved. If you don’t like leftovers or if you’re craving something different for lunch, the mid-day meal can be as simple as a scoop of chicken salad. Or, hit the salad bar at a local grocery store and top a bowl of greens with some good-fat goodies. You can also try one of these simple keto lunches:
Diets require discipline, and it is not always easy for people to follow them without indulging in a "cheat day." One day may not make a big difference in the long-term, but a recent study from the University of British Columbia in Okanagan, Canada (UBCO), found that when it comes to the keto diet, a single dose of carbohydrates may have dangerous side effects.  

What is the link between ketones and diabetes? Ketone is a chemical produced by the body when fats are broken down for energy. Ketone testing is important for people with diabetes, because high levels can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), when acid levels become too high in the blood and the person loses consciousness. Find out when and why to do ketone testing. Read now
The low glycaemic index treatment (LGIT)[49] is an attempt to achieve the stable blood glucose levels seen in children on the classic ketogenic diet while using a much less restrictive regimen. The hypothesis is that stable blood glucose may be one of the mechanisms of action involved in the ketogenic diet,[9] which occurs because the absorption of the limited carbohydrates is slowed by the high fat content.[5] Although it is also a high-fat diet (with approximately 60% calories from fat),[5] the LGIT allows more carbohydrate than either the classic ketogenic diet or the modified Atkins diet, approximately 40–60 g per day.[18] However, the types of carbohydrates consumed are restricted to those that have a glycaemic index lower than 50. Like the modified Atkins diet, the LGIT is initiated and maintained at outpatient clinics and does not require precise weighing of food or intensive dietitian support. Both are offered at most centres that run ketogenic diet programmes, and in some centres they are often the primary dietary therapy for adolescents.[9]
Why is the keto diet good for you? A keto diet is one that prioritizes fats and proteins over carbohydrates. It can help reduce body weight, acne, and the risk of cancer. Find out about the mechanisms through which it achieves these benefits and the research that supports it. This MNT Knowledge Center article also discusses the risks of the diet. Read now
Gluconeogenesis is the endogenous production of glucose in the body, especially in the liver primarily from lactic acid, glycerol, and the amino acids alanine and glutamine. When glucose availability drops further, the endogenous production of glucose is not able to keep up with the needs of the body and ketogenesis begins in order to provide an alternate source of energy in the form of ketone bodies. Ketone bodies replace glucose as a primary source of energy. During ketogenesis due to low blood glucose feedback, stimulus for insulin secretion is also low, which sharply reduces the stimulus for fat and glucose storage. Other hormonal changes may contribute to the increased breakdown of fats that result in fatty acids. Fatty acids are metabolized to acetoacetate which is later converted to beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetone. These are the basic ketone bodies that accumulate in the body as a ketogenic diet is sustained. This metabolic state is referred to as "nutritional ketosis." As long as the body is deprived of carbohydrates, metabolism remains in the ketotic state. The nutritional ketosis state is considered quite safe, as ketone bodies are produced in small concentrations without any alterations in blood pH. It greatly differs from ketoacidosis, a life-threatening condition where ketone bodies are produced in extremely larger concentrations, altering blood ph to acidotic a state.   

Hi Gigi, Low carb and keto is about the balance of macronutrients eaten (fat, protein and carbs), not specifically meat or lack thereof. Most people on keto do eat meat, though some people do vegetarian keto. Fat is actually necessary for many body processes. There is no issue for the kidneys with a high fat diet, but if you eat too much protein that isn’t great for the kidneys. It’s a common misconception that keto is high protein (it isn’t). Keto is great for diabetics as it naturally helps stabilize insulin. All of this being said, please know I’m not a doctor and you should consult your doctor on any medical questions or before starting any diet. If you have more questions that aren’t medical questions, I recommend our low carb & keto support group here.
Kapag ang carbohydrates (binubuo ng glucose) ay natupok, nagiging sanhi ito ng mga antas ng glucose ng dugo na tumaas. Ang hormone insulin, na responsable sa paggamit ng paggamit ng enerhiya, ay ipinagtatapon ng pancreas dahil sinira nito ang istraktura ng lahat ng mga protina, dahil ang mataas na konsentrasyon ng asukal sa dugo ay nakakalason para sa mga tisyu ng tao.
In the absence of glucose, which is normally used by cells as a quick source of energy, the body starts to burn fat and produces ketone bodies instead (it’s why the keto diet is often referred to as the ketone diet). Once ketone levels in the blood rise to a certain point, you enter into a state of ketosis — which usually results in quick and consistent weight loss until you reach a healthy, stable body weight. See this keto diet review, a before and after trying keto for 30 days.
Ang inirekumendang dosis ng BCAAs ay 3-6 na gramo alinman bago o pagkatapos ng iyong ehersisyo. Maghanap ng suplemento na may dalawang beses na mas maraming leucine bilang isoleucine at valine. Isang bagay na dapat tandaan, kung kumuha ka ng suplemento ng whey protein, malamang na hindi mo kailangan ng mga karagdagang BCAA. Ang whey protein ay mataas sa lahat ng mga amino acids at lalo na mataas sa leucine.
