avocado

In this installment of Ask Dr. Mike, Dr. Mike addresses a Facebook fan’s question regarding metabolic adaptation to ketogenic diets.

  • Ketosis is not weight loss
  • Ketosis and diabetic ketoacidosis are not the same and should not be confused

Keys to ketogenic success include:

  1. increase fat, don’t cut calories
  2. deplete glycogen stores quickly
  3. keep protein in check
  4. decrease calories as needed, while keeping fat up
  5. give it time!
