Why I don’t support Ketogenic Diet for Diabetics.

Quick one

I don’t recommend ketogenic diet for diabetics and this is why.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a life-threatening problem that affects people with diabetes. It occurs when the body starts breaking down fat at a rate that is much too fast. The liver processes the fat into a fuel called ketones, which causes the blood to become acidic.

When ketones build up in the blood, they make it more acidic. They are a warning sign that your diabetes is out of control or that you are getting sick. High levels of ketones can poison the body.

Ketosis can be beneficial for a number of people but certainly not for diabetics.

People may experience
Pains in the abdomen and
whole body, dehydration, excessive thirst, fatigue, loss of appetite, malaise, or weakness, nausea or vomiting dryness or fruity-scented breath, rapid breathing or shortness of breath, excessive urination or frequent urination
blurred vision, excess sleepiness, mental confusion, or weight loss.

The ketogenic diet supports eating 20g of carb per day which in reality sense is very unsustainable. From my experience with diabetes, it’s better to do 35-45g of carb PER MEAL, not per day. Do you see the difference?

That is why we have created the August Meal Plan Challenge where you will be given weekly meal plans that has already been configured to contain 30-45g of carb per meal.
