You may not be loosing weight when you are fasting.
We are talking about fasting for a longer for period of time, not intermittent fasting. If you’re doing intermittent fasting and keto and you are not losing weight usually it is because you are eating too many carbs.
If you have too much adrenal function like too much cortisol it’s called Cushing’s.
If you have a deficiency of cortisol and other adrenal hormones, that is called Addison’s.
The two big symptoms of adrenal fatigue are chronic fatigue and chronic inflammation. Cortisol normally is an anti-inflammatory. But if the adrenals are weak or you run out of cortisol or it does not work anymore because of cortisol resistance then you get inflammation.
Could your stress be what is preventing full ketosis and causing your keto plateau?
If a person plateaus or they are not progressing like they should on the keto diet, in many cases, they look at their carbohydrate levels, fasting, or fats. But, stress could actually cause this as well.
All you need to do is focus on lowering your carbs, right? Wrong.
On the keto diet, you reduce your carbs to below 50 grams. We do this because carbs increase insulin, and insulin blocks ketosis. If you are not in ketosis, you are not doing the Ketogenic diet correctly and you will not loose weight. But carbs are not the only factor to consider.
The typical things that will kick you out of ketosis (fat burning) are sugar and refined carbohydrates. Cough syrup, alcohol, beer and juice are all known to have hidden sugar that can knock you out of ketosis.
These 7 are important things you might not know about.
“You can’t go sailing” the irritated dermatologist exclaimed, “you have stage four cancer, you are dying! Do you not understand!” This was the start of a journey, which resulted in being tumour free. This is our story and how we did it.
This journey was the basis of Meme Grant’s book. How We Beat Cancer: The Natural Way
THE IMPORTANT NUTRIENTS YOU NEED ON THE KETOGENIC DIET ARE:
VITAMIN C is used to repair the damage from the high levels of sugar and insulin. This damage affects your vision, the arteries, kidney and nervous system. Vitamin C is also necessary to heal insulin resistance. Lemon juice from a bottle that you buy on the shelf is all pasteurized, it is cooked, it is heated. There is no vitamin C left.
The juice from one fresh squeezed lemon, which is a little more than an ounce and the amount often used to make 1 cup of lemonade, provides about 19 milligrams of vitamin C.
