In a separate post, I explained the difference between nutritional ketosis (NK) and diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). If this distinction is not clear, I’d suggest giving this separate post a quick skim for a refresher.  DKA is a pathologic (i.e., harmful) state that results from the complete or near absence of insulin.  This occurs in the setting of type 1 diabetes or very end-stage type 2 diabetes, and often as the result of a physiologic insult (e.g., an infection) where the patient is not receiving sufficient insulin to bring glucose into his cells.  A person with a normal pancreas, regardless of how long he fasts (including the fellow I reference above who fasted for 382 days!) or how much he restricts carbohydrates, can not enter DKA because even a trace amount of insulin will keep B-OHB levels below about 7 or 8 mM, well below the threshold to develop the pathologic acid-base abnormalities associated with DKA. Let me reiterate, it is physiologically impossible to induce DKA in anyone that does not have T1D or very, very, very late-stage T2D with pancreatic “burnout.”
Because metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance are closely tied, many healthcare providers believe that insulin resistance may be a cause of metabolic syndrome. But they have not found a direct link between the two conditions. Others believe that hormone changes caused by chronic stress lead to abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, and higher blood lipids (triglycerides and cholesterol).
[…] One of the things I’ve grown to love over the years is fried eggs with runny yolks. They’ve become a regular breakfast for me on the weekends. However, when I do regular low carb high fat meals, I like to have toast to dip into the egg yolks. Psyllium low carb bread seems to be all the rage right now, so I came up with this coconut flour psyllium husk bread that is perfect with my morning eggs. I’m not really sure who started the low carb psyllium bread trend, but one of the first breads I’ve found was Maria Emmerich’s Amazing Bread. […]
AMPK is activated through phosphorylation of the Thr172 residue of the AMPK α catalytic subunit [174–176], and this phosphorylation is largely regulated by molecules related to bioenergetic homeostasis including AMP, ADP, catecholamines, adiponectin, glycogen, and insulin. In general, AMPK is activated by energy deficit and induces signaling that upregulates energy production. AMP and ADP are direct byproducts of energy depletion while adiponectin and catecholamines serve as endocrine signals to increase energy production, often in response to energy depletion. In contrast, indications of energy surplus, such as glycogen and insulin, inhibit activation of AMPK. Nutritional ketosis increases the aforementioned factors that activate AMPK and decreases those that inhibit AMPK, suggesting that nutritional ketosis is similar to caloric restriction in inducing a signal of energy depletion.
This keto bread recipe answers your sweet and spicy cravings with a tender loaf made from gluten-free flours and warm cinnamon. Each serving of this bread delivers 7.6 net carbs, but you can cut more carbs with a sweetener like non-GMO erythritol. Stay more Bulletproof with grass-fed ghee and Ceylon cinnamon, plus avoid eating chia or flax too often.

The metabolic syndrome can be induced by overfeeding with sugar or fructose, particularly concomitantly with high-fat diet.[36] The resulting oversupply of omega-6 fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid (AA), is an important factor in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome.[medical citation needed] Arachidonic acid (with its precursor – linoleic acid) serve as a substrate to the production of inflammatory mediators known as eicosanoids, whereas the arachidonic acid-containing compound diacylglycerol (DAG) is a precursor to the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) while fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) mediates the metabolism of anandamide into arachidonic acid.[37][35] Anandamide can also be produced from N-acylphosphatidylethanolamine via several pathways.[35] Anandamide and 2-AG can also be hydrolized into arachidonic acid, potentially leading to increased eicosanoid synthesis.[35]
A sustainable exercise program, for example 30 minutes five days a week is reasonable to start, providing there is no medical contraindication. (If you have any special concerns in this regard, check with your doctor first.) There is a beneficial effect of exercise on blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and insulin sensitivity, regardless of whether weight loss is achieved or not. Thus, exercise in itself is a helpful tool in treating metabolic syndrome.
I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the Great Dr. Maggi. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. Maggi in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I’m truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via his email Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or for easy and fast communication call him on +1(662) 967-1783 you can also add him on whats-app with this number , +1(312)767-3460. one thing i love most about DR Maggi is honestly, and he is very polite with his customers, everything he told me was what he did, and his herbal medicine are very affordable.
On the contrary, in the brain, as mentioned above, the increase of AMPK activity leads to higher food intakes. But the effect of AMPK in the brain is more complicated; mice lacking AMPKa2 in pro-opiomelanocortin neurons develop obesity, while the deficiency of AMPKa2 in agouti-related protein neurons results in an age-dependent phenotype. Thus, the conclusion is that even while AMPK is a regulator of hypothalamic functions, it does not act as a signal for energy deficit or excess (Claret et al., 2007). However, the picture is more complex than this (Figure ​(Figure3);3); BHB induces AgRP expression while increasing ATP and inhibiting AMPK phosphorylation (Cheng et al., 2008). Moreover, Laeger and colleagues have recently demonstrated that under physiological conditions BHB decreases AMPK phosphorylation and AgRP mRNA expression in GT1-7 hypothalamic cells (Laeger et al., 2012).

Is there any way you can post at the beginning of a recipe: NOT for weight loss. I have tried a few recipes before reading the comments below, made it, then saw it was a no no for weight loss. Thanks! I made your pita bread too and it rocks. I am waiting for this amazing bread to come out of the over right now. I am worried about eating now though. Too many carbs for weight loss?
Dr Akaka herbal medicine is a good remedy for Hiv/aids, I was a carrier of Hiv/aids and I saw a testimony on how Dr. Akaka cure Hiv/aids, I decided to contact Him, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked him for solutions and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, now everything is fine, I’m cured by Dr. Akaka herbal medicine, I’m very thankful to Dr.Akaka, reach him on akakasolutionhome@gmail.com
The SS providing information to the brain mainly send information to the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS). These signals are generated in the GIT and abdominal viscera, as well as in the oral cavity and provide information about mechanical and chemical properties of food. The information is transmitted via vagal and spinal nerve to the NTS. The ASs arrive to the median eminence through ARC or through the blood-brain barrier (BBB). All these afferents are integrated in a complex and not fully understood network.

I Appreciate the great Dr OGDEN for his healing herbal medicine he prepared for me, after being a sufferer of H.S. V 1&2 Disease for 2 years. it was very surprising how i got cured from Dr OGDEN herbal medicine, that quickly cleanse my whole body and today after checking myself in the hospital i was found negatives, dear viewers my doctor personally told me that there was no cure for my Disease at first i thought the world has ended for me but as soon as i got reached to Dr OGDEN herbal medicine, my story was not the same again, i only used Dr OGDEN herbal medicine for just 3 weeks and i was totally cured, no one deserve to suffer for so long,health is wealth my dear viewers no amount of money can cure you except you get the right remedy and be cured completely, today a cure is found and confirm by many others like me, Dr OGDEN also has other cure for HIV AIDS, DIABETES,HEPATITIS B,CANCER,HEART DISEASE,MIGRAINES,COLD SORES,I am going to keep spreading this good news to the whole world, his email address is:drogden391002@gmail.com or his What app Mobil:+2349030382266

Most people who have metabolic syndrome have insulin resistance. The body makes insulin to move glucose (sugar) into cells for use as energy. Obesity, commonly found in people with metabolic syndrome, makes it more difficult for cells in the body to respond to insulin. If the body can’t make enough insulin to override the resistance, the blood sugar level increases, causing type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome may be a start of the development of type 2 diabetes.

Metabolic syndrome (also known as metabolic syndrome X) is a grouping of cardiac risk factors that result from insulin resistance (when the body's tissues do not respond normally to insulin). A person with metabolic syndrome has a greatly increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and premature death. In fact, another name for metabolic syndrome is pre-diabetes.
There is nothing inherently difficult about following a ketogenic diet. We have many patients who do this very easily over many years. The metabolic benefits significantly outway any perceived challenges from limiting particular food types. Uptake would be far more widespread if nutrition professionals left their predujical opinions of SFA’s behind. Finally, given the expertise in Ketogenic Diets at Harvard, Dr David Ludwig, for one springs to mind, I am surprised the author did not avail themselves of the local expertise.

Thank you for the recipe. I was going to give up gluten free bread making but your recipe made my day! I used ghee instead of butter as I was too lazy to melt butter. It rose prettily in the oven. Such a nice loaf of bread. Definitely not eggy and it even has the fluffiness of bread. I would like to double the recipe and make it in a 1 lb loaf pan. Do you think that’s feasible? Many thanks,
I saw this recipe today and went out and bought the ingredients. I made it exactly like the instructions state. Mine actually did rise while it baked. But there is no yeast in this. Was it the baking powder and egg whites? It’s still fluffy and light. But all I taste is egg whites and coconut from. The coconut flour. I could definitely see how this will be an amazing bread… But I’m not sure what I did wrong. I used 12 egg whites just like the recipe called for. I also used the suggested items. Any idea on what I did wrong? I had to have messed up something…

I want to give all the glory to a herbalist for changing my life by destroying the yoke of Herpes Simplex Virus from my body system with herbal roots and herbs. I have lived with Herpes Simplex Virus for three and half years now, i continued to pray to God for divine intervention for my healing because am a believer, my condition was so obvious because of the constant Fever & flu like symptoms, Tingling, burning or itching sensation in the area where blisters will appear. I started using antiviral drugs until i saw on webmd.com that a herbalist call excel specialize on curing herpes! everyone on the site were talking about his so i got connected to the herbalist, i dived at the instructions that was given to me by him and he assured me i will get rid of the virus within a month or two. I believed and had faith in him for i really needed his help. He sent me the herbal medication through ups delivery to drink and a tree root branch to chew and swallow and i used the medication for two weeks! after a month i was experiencing changes in my body system cause the whole pain, Muscle aches were gone and now i have gotten myself back through herbal means and i advice you do the same by contacting this herbalist on Email: Excelherbalcure@gmail.com or call him +1 (859) 429 1007
Metabolic syndrome is a common condition that goes by many names (dysmetabolic syndrome, syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, obesity syndrome, and Reaven syndrome). Most people identified as having this syndrome have been educated about the importance of watching for signs of diabetes, having their blood pressure monitored and lipid levels checked, and exercising – but there has been little to tie all of these factors together except pursuit of a "healthier lifestyle."
Hi Maria- I am a 3 year cancer survivor. I had been following basically a paleo diet, but often fell off the wagon where sugar was concerned. In the last year I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and chrohn’s disease. My naturopath recommended I follow the keto-adaptive diet. I was very excited to make your amazing bread, but I wonder if the psyllium powder would be bad for my intestinal issues? Hope not!

I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none. I have been beating these egg whites for almost 40 minutes with an electric hand mixer and I still have not yet come to the consistency as your photo shows for stiff egg whites. So my questions are, is this amount of time normal for beating the egg whites? And what amount of time would you recommend if this is not the normal amount of time?
Ultimately, cancer is highly complex, whereas some tumors may be highly responsive to carbohydrate restriction, others may become adapted to utilise fats or ketones. Cancer, and the treatments currently in use cause unpleasant systemic effects such as muscle wasting and compromise of the immune system, therefore any interventions should be undertaken under the guidance of a doctor. There are limited treatment options available for some types of cancer, many drugs have toxic side effects and many types of cancer have a poor prognosis. In these cases, considering metabolism as an adjunct to conventional treatments is interesting, and offers the potential of another avenue of attack on cancer.  
Development of metabolic syndrome depends on distribution as well as amount of fat. Excess fat in the abdomen (called apple shape), particularly when it results in a high waist-to-hip ratio (reflecting a relatively low muscle-to-fat mass ratio), increases risk. The syndrome is less common among people who have excess subcutaneous fat around the hips (called pear shape) and a low waist-to-hip ratio (reflecting a higher muscle-to-fat mass ratio).
Ketosis is the result of following the ketogenic diet, which is why it’s also sometimes called “the ketosis diet.” Ketosis takes place when glucose from carbohydrate foods (like grains, all sources of sugar or fruit, for example) is drastically reduced, which forces the body to find an alternative fuel source: fat. Although dietary fat (especially saturated fat) often gets a bad name, provoking fear of weight gain and heart disease, it’s also your body’s second preferred source of energy when carbohydrates are not easily accessible.
First of all, almond flour bread will never have EXACTLY the same texture as wheat bread because it lacks the gluten. It will be slightly softer. But. Baking with almond flour is never an exact science. If your almond flour is coarser, just add an extra couple of tbsp next time and the bread will be firmer. Or try reducing the amount of water so it dries out more. I would not recommend changing the amount of egg (unless you used extra large eggs). Hope this helps!
Having adequate blood levels of vitamin D may reduce the risk of insulin resistance in people who are obese. There is some evidence that a certain blood level of vitamin D is needed for normal glucose metabolism in women who are overweight and obese (but not diabetic), but it is not clear whether any further benefit is gained with higher blood levels.
Good day every one i want to inform the general public how i was cured from Herpes Virus Patient for good Five years i was loosing hope on myself my Boyfriend ran away from me because of my situation one day i was online and i saw testimony on how Dr ozalogbo help a lady to cure herpes virus,so i still continued searching and then, i saw a testimony of someone again who has been healed from “HIV AIDS by this same Man Dr ozalogbo and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i emailed Dr ozalogbo telling him about my HERPES Virus he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured…oh i never believed it,well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man 2 weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr ozalogbo assured me,after some time i went to my doctor to confirm if i have be finally healed,behold it was TRUE,that is why i want you to join me in thanking Dr ozalogbo for saving my life if you need his help please contact him via email: ozalogboshrine@yahoo.com or whatsapp him with he’s cell phone number;+2348162562991 he is a true healer…..

I have been suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) disease for the past four years and had constant pain. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from Herpes Simplex Virus by this Man Dr Oniha and she also gave the email address of this man and advise anyone to contact him for any kind of problem that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr Oniha telling him about my (Herpes Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Though i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Oniha assured me, after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends if anyone have such problem and need help contact Dr Oniha via email onihaherbalhome@gmail.com. You can also reach him directly on his WhatsApp +1 (925) 248-3607.


Ketosis could benefit patients with PD, as ketones provide an alternative energy source to the brain and also have antiinflammatory effects. Several research groups have shown that the ketogenic diet can have manifold beneficial effects in animal models of PD: alleviating motor symptoms, reducing inflammation, decreasing neuronal loss 61 ,62. Also, an in vitro model of PD (neurons in culture treated with a drug called MPTP) was used to demonstrate that addition of 4 mM of BHB was protective against neurodegeneration52. An early study of the ketogenic diet in PD patients reported very promising results: patients improved their clinical PD ‘score,’ as classified by factors including tremor, balance and mood 63. Whilst there are promising results, further clinical studies are required to demonstrate if the ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones (either alone or in combination) are a tolerable and efficacious intervention for PD.            

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection cant cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. i read people’s testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by Dr. Ogba Kosu herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with hiv for the past 7 years but Dr. Ogba Kuso cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he cast spells to restore broken marriages and a good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. Ogba Kosu on:drogbakosu@gmail.com


An increase in fat burning ability could decrease the efficiency of exercise: one adaptation to a high fat diet is an increase in a process called mitochondrial uncoupling. This means that some of the stored energy from metabolic substrates is not used to generate ATP but is ‘dissipated’ leading to a decrease in efficiency of energy production 26 ,19.  
Test ketones in the late morning or afternoon. Blood and urine ketones are usually lowest right after waking up. Try testing later on, preferably a few hours after eating. Even if you’re only in ketosis for a portion of the day, you’re still getting some benefits, as discussed in this talk by Dr. Steve Phinney: Achieving and maintaining nutritional ketosis.
As you could probably figure out I love my cast iron skillets, but my second favorite piece of cookware is definitely the Instant Pot, followed by my smoker/grill combo but I’m getting off track.  Anyway, if you’ve never made hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, no offense… but you’re doing it wrong. This post from SkinnyTaste covers all the details to make perfect hard-boiled (or soft-boiled) eggs every time that are the absolute easiest to peel.  
Yes that’s correct. Many on keto diets eat less meals than average so it’s pretty normal to see single means 500+ cal Also keto is a high fat low carb moderate protein diet. You minimize carbs, hit protein goals and eat fat to keep you full. So yes, those are excellent macros. Here is a great resource to learn a ton about keto. Khttps://www.ruled.me/guide-keto-diet/
The keto diet revolves around eating foods that are high in natural fats, consuming only moderate protein and severely restricting the number of carbs eaten each day. Even if you don’t have much weight to lose, entering into a state of ketosis can be helpful for other reasons — such as for improved energy levels, mental capabilities and mood stabilization.
Menopause is the time in a woman's life when menstrual periods permanently stop, also called the "change of life." Menopause symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular vaginal bleeding, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, urinary incontinence, weight gain, and emotional symptoms such as mood swings. Treatment of menopausal symptoms varies, and should be discussed with your physician.
Choose whole grains such as brown rice and whole-wheat bread instead of white rice and white bread. Whole-grain foods are rich in nutrients compared with more processed foods. Whole grains are higher in fiber, so the body absorbs them more slowly. They do not cause a rapid spike in insulin, which can trigger hunger and cravings. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines from the USDA recommend that at least half of your grains be whole-grains.
I was diagnosed of herpes 6 years ago, the doctor said there are no possible cure for the virus. But i never gave up hope of getting cured. i have been living with it taking acyclovir to prevent outbreaks. I have been doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies of people getting cured by Dr. Okasi herbal medicine. I contacted him through his website: okasiherbalsolution.webs.com, we talked on phone and i discovered he was genuine. I gave it a try and got the medicine from him, took it has he has prescribed and i’m so happy to say i’m completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. It’s so amazing, a thing of joy. Dr Okasi herbs medicine is capable of curing HSV 1&2 completely. contact him today Email: okasiherbalsolution@outlook.com..
Instead of a complicated keto bread recipe, this breakfast sandwich from Hey Keto Mama gets creative and simple by using spicy pork sausage patties in place of an English muffin or bagel. An egg plus a sriracha and cheese mixture are sandwiched in between, along with any veggies of choice (a slice of tomato and spinach would fit right in). To lighten it up, swap in turkey sausage patties and use just egg whites instead of the whole egg.

Your muscles need blood glucose for fuel, which means that when you take that barre or CrossFit class, you’re helping move blood sugar from the bloodstream into the muscles where it’s then burned up. Over time, this can lower blood sugar levels and increase insulin sensitivity (i.e. how well your cells are able to absorb glucose from the blood and use it for energy). Intense exercise can temporarily raise blood sugar, so if you have poor blood sugar control, it make sense to start moderate (think: walking, jogging, or yoga), and then work your way up.

It’s hell to live with the HERPES virus, I lost almost almost everything that made me a complete human and also suffer rejection and pains, My life was drastically going down the drain till I found useful information online that directed me to this website ‘herpesredemption.com’ where I read useful information about the virus and also contacted the email provided and to cut the story short, I was given instructions which I followed and the remedy was given to me, I used it and got healed.
As for the bacon, I lay it out in my biggest iron skillet and bake it in the oven while the eggs are in the Instant Pot, the timing works out almost perfectly.  If you’ve got a busy week at work or are going through finals week as a student (or teacher) make these bad boys the Sunday before and roll them into 10 balls rather than 8 and have 2 for breakfast all week long, rather than skipping breakfast and subjecting yourself to UIF (Unintentional Intermittent Fasting).
The ketogenic diet can compromise high intensity sprint performance: High intensity exercise performance is heavily reliant on the ability to produce energy via anaerobic respiration (glycolysis), which requires carbohydrate as a substrate. Following a ketogenic diet causes a decrease in the amount/activity of the enzymes in the glycolysis pathway that decreases the rate that the pathway can proceed24. This could explain the decrease in anaerobic sprint performance consistently seen with athletes following a ketogenic diet 25 ,23. 
The sirtuin isoforms SIRT1 [232, 233] and SIRT3 [234–236] are nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide- (NAD+) dependent deacetylases associated with longevity. Many reactions are regulated by the redox state of NAD+ and its phosphorylated form, NADP+. Among these reactions, a prominent role of reduced NADP+ (i.e., NADPH) is to support reductive biosynthesis and antioxidant defense, requiring the NADP+/NADPH ratio to be kept low [237]. In contrast, the NAD+/NADH ratio is kept high to support energy metabolism [237], thereby linking sirtuin function to bioenergetic status [238]. Although sirtuins are inhibited by high concentrations of NADH, their activity is influenced more by absolute NAD+ concentration than the NAD+/NADH ratio [238].

The low carbohydrate content of the ketogenic diet prevents blood sugar spikes and stabilizes insulin levels. Chronically high insulin levels and the disrupted incretin signaling (gut derived molecules) lead to insulin resistance over time (pre-diabetes). This means that our cells are not willing to take up vast amounts of glucose anymore and more and more insulin is needed for glucose uptake – a vicious cycle.
The investigators found that this was because ketone metabolism resulted in greater “free energy per ATP molecule” (G). ATP is adenosine triphosphate and is the "energy currency" of biology. The “free energy” (∆G) of ATP represents how much potential energy is stored in each ATP molecule, and this value can shift slightly depending on the conditions inside the cell. The more negative the value of the ‘free energy’ of ATP, the more potential to do work the ATP molecule has. 
NOTE:  Make sure to weigh your ingredients to ensure it rises properly and doesn’t get hallow and gummy.  Also, if you do weigh and grind your psyllium and still have a problem, try grinding the psyllium again.  We have a batch of psyllium that we ground and didn’t work.  Stay really wet.  So we ground it again and it works great!  Also, if your loaf looks nice and big but then deflates after removed from the oven, try reducing the baking powder to 3 teaspoons.
Have you heard all the buzz about the keto diet and want to know more? Did a friend tell you they’re “in ketosis” and you got interested? Here’s everything you need to know about ketogenic diets and being in ketosis for fat loss, brain function, satiety, and performance. Editor’s Note: This article is being updated … Continue reading The Keto Diet: Next Big Thing or Dangerous Fad?
There is also exciting early research suggesting that ketosis may be beneficial for many other conditions, such as reducing the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, reversing PCOS, perhaps enhancing conventional brain cancer therapies, possibly slowing down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, along with potentially helping people live longer, healthier lives.
I have great respect for Harvard Medical School. I notice that they support their readers posting comments and I am most appreciative of the article and all the many thoughtful comments by the readers. The readers seem to have the most expertise here and I hope that the doctor who wrote the article will think long and hard about the comments by readers. After 35 years of clinical practice in mental health, I notice that all issues of emotion involve medical issues, nutrition, and the gut bacteria. I would say that these issues and all of the executive brain functions seem to improve with ketogenic principles. For those that apply it in a flexible and smart manner, it appears to improve every area of their lives. I strongly encourage the author of the article to take one class via The Institute for Functional Medicine. If he is open to more learning he can take more classes and get certified. I’m sure a fine doctor, he will be an even better doctor and personally healthier, if he gets more training. Are we all open to new learning(especially us healthcare providers)?
I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease since last year without hope for cure and i was miserable until this year i was checking on new developments about this virus then i saw how different persons talks about getting cure for herpes through a particular herbalist called Excel so I Contacted him through his email (Excelherbalcure@gmail.com) and he responded with instructions about what he needs to prepare the herbal medication which i did and he sent it to me in LA and after taking the herbal medicine as he instructed i went back to the hospital few months later and the test result shows i,m negative and now i,m completely free of genital Herpes thanks to Dr.Excel for his urgent response, you can call his personal cell phone +1 (859) 429 1007
Though the hunger-reduction phenomenon reported during ketogenic diets is well-known, the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms remain uncertain. Ketosis has been demonstrated to exert an anorexigenic effect via cholecystokinin (CCK) release while reducing orexigenic signals e.g., via ghrelin. However, ketone bodies (KB) seem to be able to increase food intake through AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylation, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and the release and production of adiponectin. The aim of this review is to provide a summary of our current knowledge of the effects of ketogenic diet (KD) on food control in an effort to unify the apparently contradictory data into a coherent picture.

There is debate regarding whether obesity or insulin resistance is the cause of the metabolic syndrome or if they are consequences of a more far-reaching metabolic derangement. A number of markers of systemic inflammation, including C-reactive protein, are often increased, as are fibrinogen, interleukin 6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), and others. Some have pointed to a variety of causes, including increased uric acid levels caused by dietary fructose.[18][19][20]

My name is Subham Kumar Khalid from Nawada India, after getting cured of HIV by Dr White i took it upon myself to inform people who believe viruses and other chronic illness have no cure. After reading the testimony of Carolina, I decided to give it a try but today i am a leaving witness and for the rest of my life i will be grateful to this grate and powerful healer. After reading about him on a blog, I wondered why the government at all levels will not join hands to expand and promote this cure even when its from Nigerian and a black man. Just like you i had my doubts and reservations but then i decided to take my destiny into my hands even when the medical doctors said its impossible by contacting him behold my long sorrow turned joy after just a few days of taking his herbs. If truly you want to get rid of your sickness I honestly urged to contact him: drwhitethehivhealer %gmail .com or watsapp +2349091844595
Dr. Campos, it is so discouraging to see that you disparage the ketogenic diet based on your assumption that it is very heavy in poor quality processed meats. No diet that relies on processed foods can be viewed as “healthy”. Become better informed by getting up to speed with what Jeff Volek, RD, PhD, calls a “well-formulated ketogenic diet.” Also, learn more about the potential of the diet to slow cancer progression (my specialty). You owe it to your patients who are depending on you for advice. Present them with facts, not opinions.
All I can say is WOW! I am a week in on this Keto way of eating and came across this simple recipe. Gotta admit, I didn’t think I would like it…I LOVE IT! So easy to make…took me 20 minutes total! It was light, moist and delicious. I used one small loaf pan, doubled the ingredients and made the regular one and the cheese mix in. Can’t wait to share the rest with my co-workers…we are doing this together. Will be back to check for other recipes. Thank you!
I love this recipe! Thanks for sharing, my 1st batch came out awesome, my 2nd batch, like others have described came out a bit dry and started breaking apart. So I added about a tablespoon of hot water at a time till I got the texture that I wanted and it didnt fall apart after I added a bit more water. This dough texture reminds me a lot of corn dough that is used to make tamales. So if you've made tamales this might be easy for you to make. I also took another user's advise and used a corn tortilla press, that made spreading it an easy. Definitely a redo. Already made 2 batches one with chorizo and egg the other with pepperoni, marinara and cheese and the kids love them!

I made this bread today and love it! The only problem I have is that the bread is very moist on the inside. The crust is perfect. I baked it at 350 for 70 mins and the bottom of the bread was a little moist as well as the inside. I measured all of my ingredients as your instructions say. Please help. This is the best bread I’ve made in the 2 years we have been eating wheat free.

In the absence of acetyl CoA (several ways this can happen, including substrate shortage, as I’m describing here) we evolved a cool trick.  Our liver can make – out of fat or protein, though we much prefer to use fat so we can spare our protein and prevent severe muscle wasting – something called beta-hydroxybutyrate, one of the 3 ketone bodies I described above.

Ceejoy – Please don’t give into fear mongering. There is nothing wrong with the microwave. It is 100% safe to use. If you still want to not use one, that’s your choice but please don’t spread incorrect information and try and get people to be fearful of something that is safe. If you have any legit studies to prove this (recent ones) please share those.

I got the best comfort the moment the doc emailed back at me, my hope came back alive cos I was so desperate to put an end to my shame pains and stigma brought by the presence of hsv1&2 in my system.

I drop this here is I think someone might need it: here is the herbalists website: herpesredemption.com and this is not any form of advert but my little way of saving the world. Pass it on let see how many people we can save from the cruel hand of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS(hsv)


Cirrhosis of the liver refers to a disease in which normal liver cells are replaced by scar tissue caused by alcohol and viral hepatitis B and C. This disease leads to abnormalities in the liver's ability to handle toxins and blood flow, causing internal bleeding, kidney failure, mental confusion, coma, body fluid accumulation, and frequent infections.
LOVE this bread. As a pregnant type 1 diabetic, I was looking for something to toast. I’ve tried multiple different recipes from other sites, and the bread is always so crumbly that you can never spread anything on it. This one is AMAZING! I may have to experiment with more water so that it comes out less dense, but soooo happy to prevent blood sugar spikes with future sandwiches. I can even foresee being able to have traditional burgers again (not just wrapped in lettuce). My husband bakes his own “normal” bread, and now I get bread too and its even easier to make than his 🙂

Metabolic syndrome is a burgeoning global problem. Approximately one fourth of the adult European population is estimated to have metabolic syndrome, with a similar prevalence in Latin America. [25] It is also considered an emerging epidemic in developing East Asian countries, including China, Japan, and Korea. The prevalence of metabolic syndrome in East Asia may range from 8-13% in men and from 2-18% in women, depending on the population and definitions used. [29, 30, 31]


While entering into ketosis it’s common to notice certain signs and symptoms of your body changing. These have been nicknamed by some “the keto flu.” While implementing the ketogenic diet can be challenging at first, commonly causing some side effects that can last for 1–2 weeks (or potentially more), these typically go away with time. Symptoms usually decrease as your body get’s more accustomed to being in ketosis, but in the meantime you might find that you experience:
Fathead dough is a low carb/keto dough that is made out of cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs and a flour substitute. It started out as a pizza crust recipe published by Tom Naughton while he was creating the movie Fat Head. The recipe became an internet viral sensation and has since been adapted and modified for recipes beyond pizza crust, such as breadsticks, bread rolls and bagels.
