 "low glycemic(not low carb)=ketosis

          I  wonder if anyone would care to comment on my discovery.I eat a
well balanced diet (approx 40/30/30).I decided just for kicks to try eating
low glycemic foods(same macronutrient ratio)for about 10 days.For carbs I
was eating mainly low glycemic fruits and veggies.After about 7 days I
recognized those telltale signs of ketosis(hard to sleep,smelly urine,lots
and lots of energy,and I could see my gut deflating)The only change I made
was concentrating on low gi carbs
as opposed to moderate to high gi carbs which I was previously eating.If
anyone has any comments I would be interested in hearing them!

The problem is the definition of fiber as a "carb."  You're getting
much less cooking.net">food that converts to glucose, replacing it with cooking.net">food that
is indigestible "carbs".  Basically, you appear to be eating a low
carb diet.  Whoever is in charge of definitions needs to get his act
together.

From what I have read on the internet about ketones, this sounds a great way
to lose weight, but you may need to increase your protein to avoid losing
muscle mass. If you increase your amount of carbs in your diet a little, the
unpleasant symptoms should decrease as the body doesn't burn quite as much
fat as fast as it is. Low glycemic eating is a great way, "the way" to lose
fat normally. going to xs with any thing is not recommended, so don't make
it low carb, low glycemic or it could be a problem.

regards

David

I'm on a very low GI diet with 56% carbs - have no ketosis, no smelly
urine, and a stable weight.  The 78 g of fiber make for a lot of bowel
movement, though. My lipid studies have been excellent.

My comment is that these 'telltale signs' mean *absolutely nothing* in the
absence of actual chemical tests for ketones in the urine. Get some
keto-stix and then maybe - just *maybe* - someone with an education will
take you seriously.

I hear an overactive imagination is one of the symptoms of ketosis.
