Hello,
Quick inquiry into ketogenic diet experience if anyone tried?
I increased the intake of fats from animals and coconut for the past couple of months in addition to my very low starch diet and very strict no diary policy (only ricotta cheese occasionally)and seems to be working for me.
However, it is increasingly hard to find safe to eat fish (only try to buy wild from my source), poultry (since parents in law will not cultivate as of this year anymore) , and non sprayed veggies.
It’s quite hard to maintain ketogenic, low starch, diary free diet in this case.
I wonder what others think of this..?

Ive been beef(grass-fed) salmon(wild), roe, heavy cream, beef fat, organs and water for many years keeping me away from biologics.

I can also drink Mead as I don't get any reaction from it.


I do supplement D3 as im in doors 22 hours of the day. i take k2 mk4 because im not fond of fermented foods to get vitamin K2 from. D3 and K2 go together to maximize absorption. I do leave some beef fat for longer periods of time in the fridge as it will ferment a bit. Sometimes it will have a sweet taste and sometimes it doesn't. You do develop a pallet day to day. the fact that is fermented would not taste good but I would force myself to eat it anyways and then the next day if its from the same batch i am literally craving for it as if its crack not that I know what crack is LOL

If you are doing keto I suggest staying away from pork as it's very high in omega-6. Or make sure you balance out the omega-3.

So it seems you have a high Intake of protein something I am trying to decrease at the moment for fiber and veggies. It’s so hard to get proper healthy food these days and the balancing between different dietary requirements is even harder. For example, Keto excludes ripe banana because of glucose and allows green one as it is still fiber, whereas NSD does the opposite due to starchy green ones. With 0 tolerance for diary and trying to lower protein intake I am quite limited in my options .

Hello, achala:

DIET is KEY in AS and the keto diets are great. Many people have had substantial results on such a regimen; best to stay as far away from starches as possible. Test with iodine, if necessary. There are many published lists of starch content of foods, but a few ideas: Tofu is not starchy and there are non-starchy food options like prepared mushroom noodles from Miracle Noodle, almond and coconut flour for baking, and eggs are important. Just like Imnotsure says, pork is not very good, but all of the other meats are very safe, broccoli, celery, cucumbers, and if You tolerate nightshades good to stay away from tobacco and potatoes--I can eat peppers and tomatoes without any problems. Tuna salads can be good, and some places prepare burgers wrapped in lettuce. Hope You can expand Your choices safely.


HEALTH,

John
