KEY QUOTE: “The more insulin resistant you are, the more likely you are to have hypothyroidism driven by an autoimmune effect. Very commonly I’ll put a patient on a ketogenic diet while at the same time we treat their thyroid because this helps improve thyroid function significantly.” — Dr. Adam Nally

– Will I ever get to eat “normal” so I can have carbohydrates again?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I just went on a full binge and listened to all of your Keto Talk podcasts within 2 days!  You guys are great with a perfect balance of humor and lots of science without being biased. I am now a firm believer and follower of you guys. I am completely new to keto and have never felt better in my life.  I just got done detoxifying from black mold so my brain loves all the healthy fats to make me preform at optimal levels and my sugar cravings are nearly gone. I will be ordering your books soon to get recipes and also understand this way of eating even more.  But I have a question for the show.

I would like to have a “normal” lifestyle where I can eat carbs again from time to time.  I have heard the great benefits of going full keto all the time, but I am a believer that you should always vary your diet and have other inputs so your body understands other things and doesn’t explode when you eat a cake.  If I want to keep carbs as an option should I go the full 8 weeks to get fully keto-adapted and then slowly put them back in?  Or should I be introducing carbs back into my diet sooner so I never go full keto?  I want to still be able to run on gasoline from time to time, but prefer diesel for the long haul. Is what I’m describing okay?

Thank you guys for being so amazing and interesting to listen to and helping me find the diet I’ve been looking for my entire life!

Your new Ketonian Friend,

Philip

1. Do you have to do keto differently if you take medications for hypothyroidism?

Dear Jimmy & Dr. Nally,

I just found your entertaining and informative Keto Talk podcast. Thank you both for taking the time to share your knowledge with us.

I am very new to keto but I do understand the process. My question is about going on a ketogenic diet while on thyroid medication for hypothyroidism. Does the way you approach keto differ in this situation compared with those who are not taking medications?

Thank you and I look forward to your podcasts each week.

Sincerely,

Valerie

2. Is there something missing in my ketogenic diet that makes me bruise more easily?

Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally!

I have been trying to do keto for a few months now.  Some months are easier than others.  Since going low-carb/keto I have noticed that I have random bruises show up and I seem to bruise more easily.  What key nutrients and minerals could I be lacking in my diet that could be causing this?  And what supplements do you suggest taking to prevent this?

Thanks so much! I love listening to all of your podcasts.  Both you and Dr. Nally are so helpful and informative!

3. Does it take longer for women to lose weight because of hormones when they go ketogenic?

Hey Jimmy,

I was listening to your LLVLC Show podcast with Dr. Robert Cywes who mentioned the difference in men and women with a ketogenic protocol. He explained how men typically drop lots of weight at first and then level off while women have a slower start, regulate their estrogen levels, and then over time, start to increase weight loss. I wonder if Doc Nally has any thoughts on this progression for women or if he’s seen that in his practice?

I’ve been keto for a few months and the weight is stalled a bit.  I’m trying not to freak out. Thanks for your great show!

Mindy

KEY QUOTE: “There are some people who would tell you to have all the carbs you want from time to time. The reality is that’s just not feasible for everyone. Especially for someone with insulin resistance, it’s a recipe for disaster where you’re taking two steps forward and ten steps back when you do that!” — Jimmy Moore

KETO TALK MAILBOX:

Hi Jimmy and Doc,

Thanks for the great podcast. I recently discovered you guys and I’m methodically making my way through all the episodes. I have been on a ketogenic diet for a few months now and have lost 10 pounds so far. I measure my ketone levels using the Precision Xtra meter and regularly measure between 2.5-4.5 mml/L. I recently bought the Ketonix breath ketone device and have started using it as well. I wanted to see if you guys could touch on the overall differences between these two methods of ketone measurement. I have heard that Ketonix is supposed to correlate pretty closely to the Precision Xtra. But how is this possible since they measure two different ketone bodies. Can you give a range you would consider good for someone who is in nutritional ketosis when measuring with the Ketonix?

Thanks much and keep up the great work.

Shawn

    Regarding the bruising–you need to take in more collagen. Bone broth (homemade) , hydrolized collagen powder, or collagen supplements are a way of boosting collagen in your diet. I was experiencing the same thing, and found the remedy by accident (actually, it was fasting and drinking my own homemade bone broth).
