World Cancer Research Fund recommendations on a healthy cancer preventing diet and their philosophy on eating red meat Can you eat keto without having very much saturated fat because of an APOE4 genotype? Are there special considerations with keto for people who have had their thyroid completely removed? Why would Vitamin A levels skyrocket on keto and can there be a toxic elevation of it to be concerned about? What’s the mechanism that would cause weight gain when people start eating low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat? Why do nutritionists think a ketogenic diet will crash your adrenals and what could be done to prevent this? “People that go keto need to be aware that their medicines might need to be adjusted.” – Jimmy Moore “We know the brain benefits of the ketogenic diet. I would advocate people that are at risk of Alzheimer's disease to eat a whole food keto diet.” – Dr. Will Cole HEALTH HEADLINES:

What are the long-term effects of a ketogenic diet? Not all carbs are bad: Study shows high-carb diets can promote healthy brain aging Skinny genes the 'secret to staying slim' Trans Fats: Going, Going…Gone : COMMENTS ON THIS ARTICLE FROM LISTENER KATE:Everything was great until I got to the last paragraph:"While most vegetable oils are good substitutes [for transfats], tropical oils such as palm and coconut oil are high in saturated fat, and their effects on the heart are still unclear. There are also environmental concerns with palm oil: Increased demand has led to large-scale deforestation and animal habitat destruction in Indonesia and Malaysia as land is cleared for new palm plantations. All of this is just more reason to eat whole unprocessed foods, which are naturally free of artificial trans fats.”Seriously, are we now supposed to make food determinations based on “unclear effects” on the heart? and whether is harms the environment? Well then, I believe everything in the grocery store should be examined for these two things. Nothing would be left except products from local farms. And since when are vegetable oils considered "whole unprocessed foods”?I thought Berkeley Wellness was a pretty trustworthy publication - but this just shows me they are like any other tabloid magazine.

– How can a former raw vegan feel more confident about eating cooked meats when the mentality is these are dead foods compared with vegetables being life-promoting?

Hey guys!

I love this podcast and I’ve been keto for more than two years. One thing I still struggle with is feeling like I don't get enough veggies in my diet. I used to be mostly raw vegan and still think of plants as living foods that provide living properties like antioxidants that heal the body. Sometimes I feel torn between wanting to make veggie juices or green smoothies instead of cooked meats and other animal-based keto foods because I always thought of them as dead foods. The ironic thing is I know I feel best in ketosis with more energy, stable mood, and no joint pain. Should I be concerned about having these thoughts? Is it really okay to be consuming cooked meats and smaller amounts of non-starchy vegetables? I guess I’m looking for confirmation that this is enough nutrition to build healthy cells. Please help ease my mind.

Angie – What is necessary for properly balancing the gut pH levels when you eat keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I have read your books and am fully dedicated to the keto lifestyle. I was wondering if you guys could share your thoughts on how to stay properly balanced with your gut pH (alkaline vs. acid) while pursuing ketosis. It’s seems adding in a small amount of grains along with the non-starchy vegetables you consume on keto would be enough to balance this. Does this make sense or do you have another perspective on this that I’m not yet understanding. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Kim – Will autoimmune issues like melasma and Sjögren’s syndrome ever fully heal with a ketogenic nutritional approach?

Hello Jimmy and Dr. Cole,

I’m a 40-year old female who has been battling autoimmune disease (Sjögren’s syndrome) for more than 10 years and I’ve made great strides. I started to get melasma when I was 30 years old and I’m convinced that this is from my hormones going haywire. I am no longer taking plaquenil for pain and inflammation since going keto three months ago and I haven’t felt this good in years. But I really hate the melasma and want to see my body fully heal from this and my autoimmune disease. Will this eventually start showing signs of healing if I stay in nutritional ketosis? Anything else I can do along with keto to spur this on?

Dalaina – Why would triglycerides spike early on eating keto? Will keto help stage 3 kidney disease?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I started keto three weeks ago and recently had some blood work done that shocked me. I had a huge spike in triglycerides—up to 700! I have had traditionally high triglycerides 150-200 for years. I’ve increased my fat intake and consumed very low carbs (< 30 grams), yet it scared me to see this large jump in triglycerides. It is noteworthy that I am recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and have stage 3 kidney disease. I also recently stopped my statin and beta blocker medications. So my questions for you guys is this:

1. Why did I see a spike in my triglycerides to 700 just three weeks into the diet ? 2. Is a ketogenic diet suitable for someone with stage 3 kidney disease?

I have listened to nearly all of your Keto Talk episodes going back to the very beginning. It’s always found this podcast so interesting and I love the great answers and information.


– Why is constipation a problem early on when I switched over from a Paleo diet to keto?

Hi Jimmy and Will,

I came to keto a couple of days ago from a Paleo diet and I used to have a very active bowel system, especially in the morning. I’ve never experienced constipation in my life, but I’ve gotten it eating keto and it’s showing up as a bloated belly. I’m struggling keeps my carbs low and protein moderated while all these fats on keto have made me nauseous and I’m hungry. What am I doing wrong? I drink a LOT of water, including bone broth and magnesium at night. I’m also eating spinach, chia seeds, and castor oil to try to get things moving. Do I need psyllium husks or digestive enzymes?

Thank you for your help!
