– Should I switch my keto diet over to a low-fat, whole foods, organic diet when I’m in the midst of my period?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

Going keto has made me view the whole world of nutrition from a new angle. It has changed my life completely. I’m a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer and found the research on ketogenic diets so fascinating since it was not a major focus in my education. I used to have severe acne, long and arduous monthly cycles, excess weight that I couldn't shift, and regular bouts of depression. Even on a real foods-based Paleo diet, I couldn’t figure out why my health was less than optimal.

Now I’m happily eating keto, but I noticed during my period that I come out of ketosis rather easily and see a corresponding weight gain from it. I know this is pretty common as you've mentioned on a previous episode, but I worry that coming out of ketosis leads to a spike in insulin followed by fat storage of the dietary fat I am eating rather than using it for fuel. This makes me think perhaps it's best for me to veer back to my low-fat, whole foods, organic diet during my period. Does that make sense to do that? Or is there any other way I can get around it?

I want to be able to advocate and share this diet with my future clients and would appreciate your thoughts and wisdom.

All the very best,
