Dr. Berg talks about the long term effects of low carbohydrate diets.There are no essential carbohydrates. Your body will not suffer from not having to consume glucose for energy. It will run much better on fat fuel or ketones. Low carb diet is NOT a low-calorie diet. They are two separate things. Being on the ketogenic diet, you want to eat unlimited of vegetables.When your body is used to the low carb diet, it will not start to crave sugar or carbs; it will be the opposite!

High Carb Foods to Avoid on a Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer

High Carb Foods to Avoid on a Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer…
Sugar Alcohols:
Sugar alcohols are a hybrid between a sugar molecule and an alcohol molecule – but are neither one nor the other. A sugar alcohol is also known as a polyol and can be classified as a carb – most are derived from corn starch from genetically modified corn. Commonly included in most sugar free and “low-carb” products, but they do have a caloric/carb value. Each gram of a sugar alcohol turns into anywhere from less than 1 to as much as 3 calories.
Use of Sugar Alcohols:
Sugar alcohols are slowly and incompletely absorbed in the body. Once they are absorbed they use very little to no insulin to convert to energy as sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed in the digestive system. A process called “passive diffusion” takes place – sugar alcohols that were consumed draw water into the bowels – results in only partial breakdown. The un-metabolized part of the sugar alcohol starts to rot, which creates a favorable environment for undesirable bacteria and pathogens to thrive and grow.
How to Calculate:
Subtract half of the grams of sugar alcohol listed on the food label from the total grams of carbs. Ex: Carbs: 20, Sugar Alcohol: 10, Total Carbs: 15
Dietary fibers are considered complex carbs, but because fiber doesn’t raise blood glucose, low-carb dieters don’t “count” fiber since our body’s digestive enzymes can’t break it down. Fiber can provide calories, not as glucose, but as products of fermentation in the colon, similar to a sugar alcohol. Some fibers, called soluble fibers, either absorb water and become gels or dissolve in water and reach the intestine where they are digested by bacteria. As they are digested by bacteria, soluble fibers produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that provide your body energy. The FDA estimates that fibers fermented by bacteria provide about 2 calories per gram of fiber. Insoluble fibers travel to the intestine with very little change. Instead of being digested, insoluble fibers increase bulk, soften stool, and shorten transit time through the gastrointestinal tract.
Starchy Vegetables: (corn, peas, squash, lima beans)
Starchy foods are often referred to as ‘carbs’ because they have such a high carb count – there are many types of vegetables, referred to as starchy vegetables, that are actually fairly high in carbs.
For example:
1-cup of cooked sweet corn contains about 31 grams of total carbs, including 3.6 grams of fiber, 6.8 grams of sugar. A cup of cooked peas provides 25 grams of total carbohydrates, 8.8 grams of fiber and 9.5 grams of sugar. 1 Medium-sized potato contains 37 grams of carbs, 4 of which are fiber. All digestible starch gets turned into sugar as it passes through the digestive tract – results in elevations in blood sugar and dangerously higher insulin levels. This means that even seemingly healthy food choices can lead to increases in blood sugar and insulin, which can lead to insulin resistance, prediabetes, or diabetes.

Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer

Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer-
Ketosis to Help Your Business? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com/life-fitness-coaching
-Ketosis is when your body turns to fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Ketosis can occur during fasting, when you reduce the amount of carbs or calories in your diet, during pregnancy or after exercising for a long period of time. Many diets use ketosis as the means of burning fat while maintaining muscle – examples include the Atkins diet and other low-carb diets. This strategy can also lead to decreased hunger. How long does it take to kick your body into fat burning, ketosis mode? Roughly 3-4 days of consuming less than 50 carbs per day, the equivalent of 2 bananas. Benefits include weight loss, seizure prevention, cardiovascular health and type-2 diabetes help, to name a few.
How does it Work? When glucose is in short supply, your liver will break down fats into ketones, which are then used throughout your body for energy. Muscles and other tissues in your body use ketones rather than glucose for energy metabolism. In a healthy person, the production of ketones for energy is the body’s natural response to starvation, so this happens when dieting, overnight and during fasting.
Glucose or Ketones: Which is More Effective? Many brain diseases, such as epilepsy, are already being treated by the ketogenic diet. The mechanisms to why it helps the brain are still being studied, but there are some possible reasons that ketones seem to be a good energy source for the brain. One major Ketone, beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB, provides more energy per unit of oxygen than glucose, and thus may be even more efficient than glucose at providing energy to the brain. (3)
-The ketogenic diet has also been found to increase the number of mitochondria in brain cells. In a 2004 study on rats, one group was fed a ketogenic diet while the other was fed a normal diet. A positive impact was found on the gene expression for mitochondrial enzymes in the hippocampus, the memory and learning center of the brain. (4)
Ketosis and Body Water Composition: High fat and low carb diets are known to lead to fast weight loss. The fast weight loss is due to water weight being shed (5)
-When you decrease carbs, you decrease water storage in the body.
Who Can Benefit From Ketosis? If you are looking to shed some body fat, ketosis may be a good tool. This can go along with an exercise regimen as you maintain muscle while losing fat. Ketosis can also benefit those who need to boost brain power as energy may be utilized more effectively in the brain.
*Be careful because those with diabetes can get too high of a level of ketones in their blood, which is very dangerous. This occurs due to the low levels of insulin in the blood, which will signal the body to produce excess ketones that will build up in the blood, making the blood pH too low.
