Today, we will learn how to do the Ketogenic Diet.
I attached a few overviews of the diet from well respected sources.
- Josh Ellis Ketosis overview snapshot.
- Dr. Volek snapshot of a meal plan. His scientific research on the Ketogenic Diet has inspired many other authors. He has been on the diet for over 15 years.
- KetoDiet Book with all the dos and don’ts. A 14-day meal plan and several recipes. The Ketodoetapp will have more recipes.
- Dr. Pompa’s Keto-roadmap. A second source of what the diet is all about.
- Supplements instructions
- Restore a multivitamin and mineral powder.
Ready to go? Start with a tracking App. I look for ones that give the grams as well as percentages of calories. The KetoDiet App is one of many good ones.
Here is the link to the KetoDiet App.
Since first reading the above mentioned attachments, I learned that becoming fat-burning could take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the current level of carbohydrates.
Secondly, I learned that protein should be restricted more than listed in the attachments. Please see my posting: Protein reduction is the best way to reduce to slow aging and the chronic diseases.
WebMed: What are the risks?
To clarify: Ketoacidosis is not to be confused with Nutritional Ketosis?
Unlike the dangerous state of diabetic ketoacidosis, nutritional ketosis is a natural metabolic state that enables the body to efficiently use fat as a primary source of energy instead of glucose. When shifting into ketosis, one becomes a “fat burner” instead of a “sugar burner,” relying on fat as the primary cellular fuel. Ketones are produced as a byproduct of fat metabolism, and nutritional ketosis is defined by measuring blood ketones between 0.5 and 5.0 mmol/L.

To clarify: Risks
To reduce the occurrence of any of the risks listed, the leading scientists recommend supplementing with magnesium, potassium and sodium such as sea salt or himalayan sea salt.
For me, for the magnesium, potassium and all the other vitamins and minerals I need I choose Restore. I do not make money on these products, I am sharing my experience to those who wish take advantage of my experience.
I attached the long list of ingredients. For people with thyroid issues, please have your doctor reduce the medication as needed. To reduce the shipping costs call 972-580-0545. Here is the link to their product offering http://www.senergy.us/nutritional-products.html
