Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 61:
– From last week’s episode, the difference in proteins found in chicken eggs vs. duck eggs

– Jimmy and Adam’s thoughts on the recent KetoKademy event in Orlando, Florida

– Why do I have such an insatiable hunger on my ketogenic diet? Is it hormone related?

Dear Jimmy & Adam,

We actually found your Keto Talk podcast by accident as my partner and I were recommended to listen to another keto podcast and found yours by mistake instead. We’re so glad we did as we’ve listened to nearly every episode and love it. Keep up the awesome work.

I have Hashimoto’s, so I am keen to see if keto can help with controlling my thyroid and hormones. I am 32 years old, 5’7”, and weigh 168 pounds. I lost 22 pounds on the hCG diet, but need a more sustainable way of eating to keep the weight off. My question for you is about this insatiable hunger I felt during Phase 2 of hCG that has continued with keto. I thought it would subside with all the fat I’m eating, but it has not. All I can think about is finding more food, especially meat and fat. This food obsession is unrelenting and I’m at a loss about what to do. I’m continuing to gain weight and I’m frustrated by this.

My supplement intake includes Magnesium, Selenium (to help with Estrogen), activated B complex, Adrenotone (Adrenal herbal supplement to assist with Adrenals), high dosage Vitamin C (ph balanced variety), probiotics and a colloidal mineral complex. I also take Desiccated Thyroid Extract 45mg and naturally derived progesterone cream (applied from day 12 of cycle to menses). I drink plenty of water (about 3-4 liters per day), eat plenty of salt, and consume lots of raw organic grass fed butter and organic coconut oil. I steer clear of dairy due to the rapid weight gain I get from it with the exception of butter. My urine ketones are on the low end, so I realize that’s probably part of the reason for my struggle.

I understand this insatiable hunger is somehow hormone related, but I am wondering if you are able to explain further what might be going on and what physiological processes are going on to cause this. Thank you so much for what you do! I am in awe of your wealth of knowledge and appreciate what you are doing for all us Ketonians out there.

Take care and keto on!

1. Can a ketogenic diet help health the fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome brought on by deficient hormone levels?

Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally,

You guys are transforming lives with your podcast and you’ve made me feel like a keto evangelist when the topic comes up in my circles. You are to carbaholics what AA is to alcoholics. I have Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome and using the ketogenic diet over the past 4 months has enabled me to improve these conditions greatly.

I got Fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue while doing daily cycling training rides for up to 3 hours after work while being deficient in Testosterone, Growth Hormone, and Thyroid issues as a result of having Empty Sella Syndrome. The stress of that combination has set me up for this illness. Sadly my diet was loaded with carbage for decades and thankfully I’m now 100% ketogenic for life at the age of 49. My hope is keto will help me recover along with appropriate hormone replacement. Is this possible?

Thanks guys!

David

2. Will consuming 30g carbs or less with IF cause me to halt or rev up my weight loss efforts?

Hey Jimmy and Adam,

I’m a healthy 34-year old Ketonian and need your help to clear up some confusion I’ve been hearing about keto and intermittent fasting. A nurse practitioner at a low-carb clinic told me that doing IF and going below 30g carbs daily will halt your weight loss. Another Ketonian says daily IF with 20g carbs daily for at least 30 days will help jumpstart my weight loss again. I’m currently keto-adapted and have been for quite a long time. Thanks so much for your help!

3. Should I be concerned that my ketone levels are so high early on in my ketogenic journey?

Hi Jimmy and Doc!

Loving your podcasts and listen on my daily walks! I am new to keto and learning everything I can about it soaking it in like a sponge. My question is regarding ketone levels. On Day 5 of starting my ketogenic diet, my ketones were high in the afternoon at around 8 using the Ketostix. I made sure I was plenty hydrated and my urine was clear. I tested again a couple of days later in the morning right after waking up and my ketones were also high. I Googled and searched all over to find any information about why I am experiencing such a high reading like this. Do I need to eat more carbs than the 10-12g daily I am currently eating? I feel fantastic and have tons of energy after having only a couple of days of the keto flu. I consume around 1400 calories a day and stick to 60g protein and 100g fat. I’m loving the food I get to eat now, but these higher ketone levels concern me. Should I be concerned?

– Is there an age that is too old to be on a ketogenic diet?

Dear Jimmy and The Doc,

I have been enjoying eating keto as a 72-year old woman and I have been blessed with excellent health and no medications. Despite being overweight, I have perfect health markers. I probably need to lose 50 pounds and I’m working on finding a local physician to help guide me on my ketogenic diet. One of the employees at this one clinic told me a woman my age should never be in ketosis. Am I too old to be ketogenic?

Thank you in advance,

Francesca
