Here’s what Jimmy and Adam talked about in Episode 76:
– Does replenishing your glycogen stores fully kick you out of ketosis? Can you produce ketone bodies and store boy fat simultaneously?
Hi Jimmy and Doc Nally!
I love your podcast and have read your books! I’ve been keto since January 2016 and IF regularly with some longer fasts, so I’m definitely fat adapted. I eat PLENTY of fat and I love it! I have a question today about glycogen stores and corresponding ketone readings. From what I understand, if I overdo it and eat too many carbs or too much protein or both, my glycogen stores will eventually fill up and then the leftover glucose from the meal will be converted to fat for storage. I’m wondering if filling my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage will knock me out of ketosis? In other words, as long as I’m registering a reading within the nutritional ketosis range of 0.5-3.0 mmol on my blood ketone meter, is it safe to assume that I didn’t load up my glycogen stores to the point of fat storage? Is it even physiologically possible to both burn fat for fuel and producing ketones while also storing fat at the same time?
Thanks so much for all that you do, and thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
JIMMY AND DR. ADAM NALLY’S KETO LIVING SUPPLEMENTS
1. Is there something about the ketogenic diet that causes vivid dreams that lead to nightmares?
Dear Jimmy and The Doc,
Reading Keto Clarity last year made me realize that the keto life is the key to life, so thank you! I have question I’d love your help with that I haven’t seen a good answer to anywhere online. Do you experience what I’ll describe as “keto dreams?” Some people have shared that since eating a low-carb, ketogenic diet, they struggle more with nightmares. I had stress-induced insomnia for 10 years prior to going keto, but now that I’m sleeping better my sleep is plagued by extremely vivid dreams that oftentimes lead to nightmares. Am I suffering from some sort of deficiency in my diet for this to be happening now? Or is my body just working through the stress of bad sleep for more than a decade?
Thank you very much for your help,
2. Is chicken fat and bacon a worse meat option while eating keto because of their polyunsaturated fat content? Or does it even matter?
Hi Jimmy and the Doc,
I’ve been eating low-carb, ketogenic since December 2014. I check my blood glucose and blood ketones daily. One of the pleasures of eating keto is I get to enjoy cooking and eating real foods like pasture raised chicken and making bone broth. However, I do have a concern about the chicken fat containing linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). I learned more about these reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz where she describes PUFAs as obesegenic because they store more fat in a low insulin environment while increasing insulin resistance outside the fat cells. Even Dr. Nally’s beloved bacon contains large amounts of these PUFAs as well. Did that wake you up Doc? Beef fat, lamb fat, and butter are all low in PUFAs. So my question for you guys is this: Does the choice of meat type with better fat profiles when you are eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat matter in terms of dealing with body fat loss goals?
I’ll be listening for your reply on the show,

3. Is there a keto-friendly allergy medication or remedy that doesn’t contain unwanted sugars and other culprit ingredients?
Hi Jimmy and Dr. Nally,
Thanks for all you do in spreading the word about the multiple benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle through your podcast. I suffer from a lot of allergies, especially grass and ragweed pollen. Over the years I’ve experimented with many antihistamines and their efficacies for me. Of course, Benadryl is the best, but has the side effect of severe drowsiness. Through experimentation I’ve found what works best for me is the CVS brand of 12-hour allergy product where the active ingredient is Chlorpheniramine Maleate. Now that I’m keto, it seems prudent to reexamine all the medications and supplements I take in terms of their compatibility with this way of eating.
In my allergy medication that I like, here’s the list of inactive ingredients in this product: Calcium Sulfate, Carnauba Wax, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Confectioner’s Sugar, D&C Yellow 10, Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue 2/Indigo Carmine Aluminum Lake, FD&C Yellow 6, Gelatin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Methacrylic Acid Copolymer, Methyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Pharmaceutical Ink, Polysorbate 80, Povidone, Propyl Parahydroxybenzoate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sucrose, Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Triethyl Citrate.
Ragweed season is fast approaching, and I will need an antihistamine product that will actually work—otherwise I will be absolutely miserable. I’m willing to take Benedryl every 4 hours if needed, but I was wondering if there is a long-acting antihistamine you advise your highly insulin resistant patients to take which will have minimum insulin and glucose response. I’d like to avoid the confectioner’s sugar, sucrose, and other suspect ingredients in that CVS brand if possible. This seems like an issue that might affect a lot of your listeners. Thanks for all you do in reaching and teaching so many about the ketogenic lifestyle!

– What’s the best way to determine what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for my ketogenic diet?
Hi, Jimmy and The Doc!
Thank you for writing Keto Clarity and doing the Keto Talk podcast sharing your wisdom about the ketogenic lifestyle. I’ve been keto since January 2017 and have lost 15 pounds. While I eat low-carb, high-fat, I’m still struggling about how to figure out exactly how many carbohydrates, how much protein, and how much fat to eat. I follow a keto group on Facebook that gives me inspiration, but they don’t believe excess protein gets converted into glucose as I’ve learned from you guys. If you disagree with their version of keto, then they shame you for not understanding the diet. In fact, when I asked about testing my blood ketones recently, one person responded that eating 20g carbohydrates will automatically put you in to ketosis. I know this isn’t true, but it’s made me think about how I can go about discovering what the right level of carbs, protein, and fat are for me. Can you guys help?
Thanks for all you do!
