Keto Diet Explained! The best summary of this diet is “no sugar, no starch, high fat.” Say those words out loud. Again. No sugar. No starch. High fat.
Step 1: No sugar. No starch. High fat.
The best summary of this diet is “no sugar, no starch, high fat.” Say those words out loud. Again. No sugar. No starch. High fat.
Step 2: Remember the Number 20
It is critical as I will explain later. For now, commit this number to memory:
Step 3: Buy Urine Ketone Strips I hate even to have to say this, but I recommend you buy something. Yes, as a physician who has been subjected to more multi-level marketing pitches than I care to admit, typing this recommendation makes me uncomfortable. But it is necessary.
To succeed at switching your fuel source from sugar to fat, you need to know if you are producing ketones. Spend some money. Ketone strips typically cost about $15. (affiliate link): https://amzn.to/2L2HCUo

Using Exogenous Ketones is a great little boost to help get your body burning ketones, give you a quick hit of energy and I’ve even been told it’s a nice little mood booster.

Here’s what one reviewer on Amazon said:
“I have tried many different exogenous ketone drinks and supplements. This one was one of the best that I have tried. Do yourself a favor and add a little heavy whipping cream to it. It will not disappoint.”
Thanks for tuning into my channel.
GKI [GLUCOSE KETONE INDEX] = Glucose divided by 18 : Ketones
DR BOZ RATIO: Glucose divided by ketones.
This math was easier for my mom to do … and for my patients.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 80 [ comparable to a GKI of 4:1] = This is the weight loss zone. Some autophagy may be happening.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 40 [ comparable to a GKI of 2:1] = This zone has strong benefits with deep tissue/organ inflammation and auto-immune problems. (Leaky gut, brain fog, Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s) More autophagy should be happening.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 20 [ comparable to a GKI of 1:1] = This is the zone I use for patients with Cancer & extreme health issues. This was my mom’s category. This zone is really hard. No playing around. Make sure your doctor is watching you closely. Almost all that reach this zone are likely to have autophagy at this stage.

The two most common questions I get …
1) “Doc, what BLOOD METER do you recommend?”
ANSWER: FORACARE: http://bit.ly/2QKGmKG
For years my diabetics told me this system was great. I tried several others before I bought this one. I can’t count the number of times I have tested my blood only to get an ERROR message from the strip. Grrr. I hate that. FORACARE gets my vote because it is accurate and takes only ONE test strip to get the results. YES!!
