For most people stevia, erythritol and xylitol don’t raise their blood sugars but maybe it is something else and he is reacting to it – with high bloods sugars or it may be raising his insulin and then dropping his sugars later. Either way, if something health wise has changed, and something new has been introduced, it kind of points the finger to that being the culprit. Maybe he could try dark chocolate for his sweet fix on the way home? I love 90% but he may need to work up to this.
total for both drinks and I account for the calories in my total. So, don’t fall into the trap of thinking that “since low carb is good, no carb is better”. The real goal for low carb is to be low enough to force the generation of ketones. It is the presence of ketones which makes the difference in this diet. Phinney & Volek say that pretty much anything below 50 grams a day will put you into ketosis.
This comes to ~20 grams of glucose a day. Therefore, if you are eating less than 20 grams of carbs your body is going to make up the difference. requirement for some (not much, but some) glucose. Therefore if you don’t eat enough carbs the body will generate its own glucose via a process called Gluconeogenesis.
It think the point of his experiment was to show that the energy formula doesn’t work (he put on a lot more weight than expected on the high-carb diet and very little on the LCHF diet). i have been doing keto for 3 weeks. i just lost 1kg totally. i have 35-40gr carb daily, 130gr protein and 110 or more gr fat. almost 1600 calories a day.

Thank you. Hi-I’m 2 weeks into a ketogenic diet prescribed by my doctor (traditional western medicine, believe it or not!) in an attempt to help my lipid profile, without increasing my statin dose.

They may last for a week or so while your body adjusts to the change. After that, you may find that your digestive system normalizes. But whenever you are making a diet change, it helps to do so gradually, so your body can take more time to adjust. This may prevent low-carb diet diarrhea altogether. Having a sweet tooth on a low-carb diet can be excruciating.
and I cannot really see why. My initial focus was not to lose weight, I’ve always been lean, but to feel better, well disposed.
And that lack of water in my system was creating terrible illness in me. I am now eating about 100-150 grams carbs a day, which includes two (2) small bran muffins (which I prefer to cereal), pasta or rice a couple times a week, and cutting out bacon (loaded with nitrates anyway and so expensive) and cruciferous which I seem unable to digest without heightening IBS symptoms. I’ve been doing ketogenic diet for over 5 years. I lift weights 5 days a week.
