I started a ketosis diet and so far today I have had 0 carbs. I am supposed to go to the gym for weight training this afternoon. I always drink a gatorade while working out because I get nauseous and throw up if I do not have it.
Will drinking a Gatorade be harmful to my keto diet?

when does that stage begin, how long does it last, and when do you know it’s over?

I have used Ketone test strips. Am I doing something wrong? Could I have a medical problem which is preventing ketosis? Does it often take longer than 3-5 days? Is there anything more I can do?

I’m not on my second day of the Atkins diet. I’ve been very good so far. I’m supposed to have up to 20g net carbs a day. Yesterday I only had about 5g carbs, all from eating swede (vegetable). Today I was really craving carbs and I bought a Chocolate Grenola bar from Atkins. It said on their website that it can be used for phase 1. And it says on the front of the bar that it only has 3g net carbs. But on the back it says 18g carbs. Those 18 carbs, are they before they calculate the "net" carbs or what? And if it really has 18g net carbs, that means I’ve already eaten 21g carbs today. Does that mean I wont reach ketosis..?


I must be getting old. 3 yrs ago when I last did the low carb diet i lost 20 lbs in two months and kept it off til recently. This time around (it’s been about two months, with one week off in the middle due to travel and restricted food availability) I had lost about 12 lbs as of last week. Great! But then I gained about 1.5 back, and as of this morning I have gained about a total of 4 lbs back. I test my pee every day, and the strips always turn pink. In the past, they’d turn purple, but that’s another story. Additionally, I ride my bike to work every day, and I do 45-60 minutes of cardio exercise at the gym 3-4 days a week. I’ve been doing those things for two months now too. Seems like the weight should be flying off me. How is it I am gaining weight!! Especially while it says I am in ketosis. I don’t buy it that its muscle either. It would all have to be in my legs and even though they are more toned since doing all this, I doubt they have 4 extra lbs of muscle in them. How can I get to the bottom of this?

Low carb haters can shut up and move on. Please only answer if you know what you’re talking about and not just squawking some personal agenda. Thanks!

What is the Ketogenic diet…in a simplistic sense? is it healthy? What are the upsides and downsides to this diet?

i know what ketoacidosis is and from what i have read so far they say that a normal non diabetic person cannot develop ketoacidosis. i am personally think this is all very silly and people should just stick to the good old fashioned dieting, i am just very curious.

The whole interview: If you’re on kidney dialysis you’re told not to eat a high protein diet. Full lecture on energy metabolism is here — Dr Eades experience: I heard that ketosis is very hard on the kidneys. I have a friend who was born with one kidney, and her doctors expressly forbade her from doing any ketogenic type diets. What is your view on ketosis and kidney function. — Hi Doug- It’s not ketosis that is supposedly “very hard on the kidneys,” but a ketogenic diet. The part of the ketogenic diet that is supposedly damaging to the kidneys is the higher protein content of that diet. Much research has shown that dietary protein DOES NOT have an adverse effect on normally functioning kidneys, even if it just one normally functioning kidney. The idea that protein damages kidneys is what I call a vampire myth, one that keeps coming back to life no matter how many times it has been killed by the light of good research.

It took me 1 1/2 — 2 years to get my kidneys back to normal. No kidding. I now eat a high fat, very low carb, adequate protein (46 g) diet, and that has been working for me so far. — If you truly developed kidney problems as a consequence of the
