My Keto Plan a new tool designed to help people achieve fast, healthy weight loss with a ketogenic diet. Since the majority of calories on a ketogenic diet will come from dietary fats, choices should be made with digestive tolerance in mind. Saturated and monounsaturated fats such as butter, macadamia nuts, coconut oil, avocado and egg yolks are tolerated more easily by most people, and since they are more chemically stable, they are less inflammatory.
Berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) can be enjoyed occasionally in small amounts, as they are the lowest in carbohydrate.
Spices do have carbs, so be sure to count them if they are added to meals made using this low carb food list.
The "dangers of low carb diets" are really just myths told by people who have a limited understanding of how low carb diets work.
As mentioned above, the "dangers of low carb diets" are false beliefs and unsubstantiated fears communicated by people who have a limited understanding of how low carb diets work, or by people with financial or professional reasons to maintain support for the low fat, high carb message.
The ketogenic diet is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet that provides substantial amounts of protein.
One of the key factors in the success of keto diets for weight loss is the suppression of appetite. Athletes who desire improved performance over prolonged periods have found that keto diets can improve aerobic efficiency and increase the anaerobic threshold. Most people cannot tolerate eating a large amount of vegetable oil, mayonnaise or even olive oil over time.
Choose organic or grass fed animal foods and organic eggs if possible to minimize bacteria, antibiotic and steroid hormone intake. Be aware that dairy proteins (whey and casein) are insulinogenic (meaning they cause an insulin spike) in the body, so if you having trouble losing weight or getting into ketosis, limit amounts or avoid.
Cashews, pistachios and chestnuts are higher in carb, so track carefully to avoid going over carb limits. However, if there is a desire for something sweet, these are the recommended choices for sweeteners. Ketosis is simply a normal metabolic pathway in which the body cells utilize ketones to make energy, instead of relying on sugar or carbohydrate. What are the side effects of a ketogenic diet?What are the benefits of a ketogenic diet?But first a little legal and medical coverage: Although I have a Master's degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition, I am not a physician.
They are also taught that ketosis is dangerous, and so they know even less about ketogenic diets.
Here's a list of all of the common side effects that will happen the first week or so of starting a ketogenic diet. Although it has recently gained a great deal of popularity, the keto diet has been used for treating various illnesses for thousands of years. A ketone is an organic compound composed of a carbonyl group bonded to two hydrocarbon groups.
It may take 3 to 4 days after commencing the ketogenic diet before the body reaches ketosis.
A study performed in 2006 compared ketogenic diets with nonketogenic diets used for weight loss. The diets provide metabolic flexibility that can enhance endurance in an aerobic environment. And this is a good thing, since vegetable oils are high in polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty acids. Over time, it will become a habit to add a source of fat to each meal.Avoid hydrogenated fats such as margarine to minimize trans fats intake.
These are higher in inflammatory Omega 6 fats, so limit amounts, and dona€™t heat them.85-90% dark chocolate can be used in small amounts, or use Chocoperfection low carb chocolate. Avoid the starchy vegetables such as corn, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and most winter squash as they are much higher in carbs. I also try to avoid products that have added whey protein because whey adds to the insulin spike.Heavy whipping creamFull fat sour cream (check labels for additives and fillers. Sea salt is preferred over commercial salt, which is usually cut with some form of powdered dextrose. I do have extensive experience with eating the ketogenic way, and I cured my health problems with a ketogenic diet. Hence, if you ask your physician about this diet, you may get push back and a scary "ketosis-is-dangerous" sermon. The message that fat is bad has been pounded into the collective American consciousness for the last 30 years. There are two types of fats: saturated fats that primarily come from animal products and unsaturated fats that are found in plants.
There are two types of simple sugars: monosaccharides such as fructose, galactose and glucose and disaccharides which are formed from two monosaccharides. When ketone levels are elevated, the body will attempt to lower them by excreting them in the urine or breathing them out.
It was concluded that nonketogenic diets were as effective as ketogenic diets and that the risks associated with ketogenic diets were not warranted.
In the absence of carbohydrates, the body will adapt to burn ketones that are produced in the breakdown of fats.
The huge advantage of this treatment protocol is that it is non-toxic to the rest of the body, and in "wait and see" cases, can provide an huge health support advantage to the patient. It is not a fad diet, and if it is implemented correctly, it corrects metabolic function at the cellular level.
The Omega-6 fatty acids (found in nut oils, margarine, soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, and canola oil) trigger inflammation within the body and they will make you sick if they are your only fat source. If you use vegetable oils (olive, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, flaxseed and sesame oils) choose "cold pressed." Keep cold pressed oils like almond and flaxseed refrigerated to avoid rancidity.
If you have concerns about this, please note that I have done research in the medical literature and I have looked at the studies which have been offered on sucralose (Splenda).I have yet to find a gold standard, clinically controlled human study which shows conclusively that sucralose causes human health issues.


Keep in mind that the doctor is getting nutritional ketosis confused with a much more dangerous condition called ketoacidosis. It's hard to unlearn the message that fat makes you fat, and saturated fat especially is very bad for you. In 1910, the first studies were performed on fasting as a treatment for epilepsy in France. When insufficient carbohydrates are available, fats are broken down to supply carbon needed for energy production. A person in ketosis will often have a sweet, fruity scent to their breath due to the body expelling a ketone called acetone. Other studies have found that ketogenic diets were not only effective for weight loss but included additional health benefits. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if there is a green vegetable you like that is not on this low carb food list, feel free to include it.
I don't like to propagate misinformation so I wait until there are definitive studies of negative effects before I condemn a product. A chemical reaction takes place between the oxygen in the body and carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Fats are metabolized much more slowly than carbohydrates and are not as efficient at providing energy.Proteins are composed of one or more chains of amino acids. Most keto foods are in their natural state since processed foods are often high in sugar and starch.
Low carbohydrate diets lower the amount of triglcerides in the blood and may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
In addition, keto diets have been found to reduce the amount of fat in the abdominal cavity more effectively than other diets. Therefore, a diet that eliminates carbohydrates and sugars will essentially starve the cancer cells. In healthy people, this quickly minimizes a blood sugar levels that would otherwise become toxic.
However, there are polyunsaturated fats which are essential and these are the Omega 6 and Omega 3 fats. Use clean non-hydrogenated lard, beef tallow, coconut oil, ghee and olive oil for frying, since they have high smoke points. In my opinion, eating sugar, honey and other nutritive sweeteners has negative blood sugar effects which far surpass those which might be associated with using a small amount of Splenda, or any other non-nutritive sweetener.Having said that, I will also say that I offer information on this low carb food list about Splenda, just as I do on the other sugar substitutes, because everyone is different.
Stephen PhinneyNew Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight and Feeling Great. Simple carbohydrates are metabolized first because they enter the blood stream very quickly. They are primarily used to build and replenish the body with vital structural components such membranes, hemoglobin and cardiac muscle.
One case was reported in 1995 where a ketogenic diet was used to treat two girls with brain cancer. In people with type 2 diabetes, the cells don’t recognize insulin, making it difficult to control blood sugar levels. Your intake of Omega 6 and Omega 3 types should be balanced, and you only need about a teaspoon a day. Each of the three is metabolized in the same manner but carbohydrates are burned first, followed by fats, and then protein. Complex carbohydrates are metabolized much more slowly, providing a sustained yet less dramatic increase in energy. The blood glucose levels and glucose uptake at the cancer site was decreased by 21.8 percent after 7 days of commencing the diet.
Eating wild salmon, tuna and shellfish will provide balancing Omega 3 fatty acids and are important part of a low carb food list. Russell Wilder at the Mayo Clinic developed a treatment plan for patients with epilepsy using a ketogenic diet.
Any carbohydrates that aren’t used are either stored in the liver as glycogen or converted to fat. In the absence of carbohydrates and fats, muscle will be broken down to provide protein for energy production.The average western diet consists of approximately 5 to 15 percent protein, 10 to 20 percent fat and 65 to 85 percent carbohydrates.
The blood becomes more acidic and it may damage vital organs such as the liver and kidneys. One showed substantial relief of symptoms, and progression of the disease was halted for 12 months.
I try to offer both pros and cons for each sweetener, with the idea that readers will use the product that suits them best. Urine tests are also frequently used to monitor ketone levels in those with diabetes, eating disorders or people on a ketogenic diet. Any of the three fuels that are not used for energy production will either be excreted or stored as fat.
Others point to studies that provide evidence that ketosis produces no harmful effects even with prolonged use.
The diets are an effective means of lowering blood pressure and can decrease the probability of stroke, kidney failure and other diseases.
If you don't like seafood, then consider taking small amounts of a fish or krill oil supplement for Omega 3s. Be aware that whey protein is insulinogenic (meaning it causes an insulin spike) in the body, so if you having trouble losing weight or getting into ketosis, limit amounts or avoid whey. Around the same time, physicians at Johns Hopkins Department of Pediatrics, Howland and Gamble, noted that “prayer, a water diet and three to four weeks of fasting” reduced seizures in one pediatric patient. In a ketogenic diet, the percentage of carbohydrates is substantially decreased and fats are increased.
Green leafy vegetables including lettuce, spinach, kale, collards and cucumbers good keto food as are high fiber vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.


A ketogenic diet plan which is high in saturated fat and very low in carbohydrate will REDUCE inflammation. The caloric intake is also limited to ensure the body maintains its preference for metabolizing fats.
Some sweeter vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and summer squash are allowed but must be limited due to sugar content. The ketogenic diet simulates starvation similar to fasting by eliminating carbohydrates and forcing the body to burn fats. This study from Johns Hopkins Medical School confirms this.The ketogenic diet plan is healthier because the higher saturated fat intake increases your HDL cholesterol, and at the same time, a lower carb intake decreases your triglycerides levels. Livingston at Johns Hopkins found that 1000 patients following a ketogenic diet confirmed that their seizures were under control.
In addition, eating a diet that is heavy on lean protein (without enough fat) can make one sick with a condition know as "rabbit starvation". Counting carbs is a critical part of the program, and it's important to understand how to do this correctly.Go on a carbohydrate sweep. Treatment using ketogenic diets began to decline with the development of anti-seizure medications.
Pancreatitis may occur in individuals who cannot process large amounts of fats in their diet. This includes any whole grain "complex carbs".Restock the kitchen, so that the foods on this low carb food list are available.
Here's a low carb grocery list to help with food shopping.A ketogenic diet plan is not a "special diet" that requires special foods. Ketogenic foods are essentially just real, whole foods which are close to their natural state. However, I think these are important to include in a low carb diet plan, because a small amount of fake sweetener has less of a negative effect on health than the standard amounts of sugar in sweetened foods. Some people may prefer more natural sugar alcohol sweeteners, but studies have shown these are "antiketogenic" and can derail the process of ketosis for some. They effect each person differently, so you'll have to test to see if they effect your health or weight loss goals.Be prepared to spend more time in the kitchen.
If you don't know how to cook, this would be a good time to learn about cooking in general and specifically low carb cooking.Think about your meals, and how you will plan them. This will help in buying the right foods at the grocery store, and give a framework to follow when meal time arrives. If you know you're supposed to have salmon and broccoli for dinner tonight, it makes it a lot easier to avoid choosing the old high carb foods you used to eat.Replace old habits with new ones.
If you're used to hitting the coffee place for a bagel, start making coffee at home, and have it with the eggs instead.Stay hydrated. As carb intake is lowered, the kidneys will start dumping excess water being retained as a result of the former higher carb intake.
The old 6-8 glasses is a good rule, I guess, although just drinking to thirst will probably do the trick. If you find yourself getting headaches and muscle cramps, you need more water, and more minerals such as salt, magnesium and potassium, because the water loss also takes minerals with it. I think that most people with diet related health issues have an untreated gluten intolerance.Consider taking these natural supplements.
I recommend them for the specific issues I discuss on my low carb diet side effects page.You may also want to buy some Ketostix Reagent Strips so that you can check to see if you are in ketosis for the first few weeks. See the sidebar on my ketosis page for more information.Find some way to track daily food intake and carb counts.
Keep a spreadsheet, use one of the online food intake trackers, or simply write it down in a journal.
Not only will journaling help you stay on track carb count wise, you'll want to have a record of the foods you are eating, how you felt and the changes you make so that if you go off track, you can look back and see what worked for you.
The Atkins website also has some nice tools for tracking your progress on a ketogenic diet plan. And this database is an excellent resource for food information.Think about any social situations that will be encountered, and devise ways to handle those times when temptations to eat the "old" way will be high. You don't want to be blind sided when someone at the office brings in a box of your favorite chocolates and puts them right under your nose.
Think salad and steak instead.Even if you are starting a ketogenic diet plan for weight loss purposes, don't focus on your weight. Your weight can vary between 2-4 pounds each day because of changes in water intake and absorption.
You won't be able to track any fat loss accurately on a daily basis, and the fluctuations will make you crazy if you focus on them. Instead, weigh yourself once a week, or keep track of your body measurements to track your progress. Better yet, focus on the health benefits and the long term health changes that come with eating a low carb diet.
Knowing that you are greatly improving your health is a powerful reason to stay with a ketogenic diet plan, even if you don't lose any weight.
Four to eight weeks later, you can get another blood test done and see if there are improvements.Learn how to stop sugar cravings.
There are supplements and techniques that can help you overcome those nagging thoughts of dessert and get your blood sugar under control.
As time passes, you'll find that ketosis is a powerful appetite suppressant, so it should get easier to abstain the longer you eat ketogenically.
