Little Ketosis on CKD
Research by Dr Jake Wilson demonstrated that on a CKD that you are only in ketosis 1- 2 days.
When you carb up on Saturday and Sunday then go keto on Monday through Friday, you don’t achieve ketosis until Thursday or Friday, Thus, you are only in ketosis for about 1.5 to maybe 2 days.
Wilson’ research also demonstrated the the CKD also increased body fat. Your system essentially become a ketone burning factory and loses it ability to utilize glucose (carbohydrates), especially when you flood you system with a high carbohydrate intake.
Wilson’s research found that the key to transitioning from keto to carb needed to be achieved by staring off with about 100 gram a day and slowly ramping it up.
Doing so minimized glucose being stored as body fat; minimized that body fat you added.
This has to do with…
This defined as your body ability to transition from one fuel source to another; fat to glucose (carbohydrates) or glucose (carbohydrates) to fats.
Individual who on high carbohydrate diets are “Carb Dependent” fore energy.
Individual who are on high fat/lower carb/moderate protein keto diets are "Keto Dependent for energy.
You system become “Keto Adapted”, efficient at utilizing ketone for fuel and inefficient at processing carbohydrates.
The optimal method of developing “Metabolic Flexibility” is…
Dr Mike T. Nelson provide some great information on this on how Intermittent Fasting program you system to be most efficient at using and transitioning from burning ketones to glucose; being able to use the right fuel source for the right job.
