Ketogenesis On A High Carbohydrate Diet


Jul 29, 2014
I don't start threads very often (I think this is my second one) but I thought this video was interesting and worth posting.

He mentions that a pasta meal with MCT oil is more ketogenic than restricting carbohydrates to 10% of calories.

Since strict ketogenic diets are so low in protein and carbohydrates, it is unclear whether the elevated levels of β-hydroxybutyrate seen in this type of diet is indicative of more ketones being produced and used or is a sign that body is unable to use these ketones because of decreased oxaloacetic acid. Oxaloacetic acid is needed to use ketones and OAA is made from either carbohydrates or protein.

The video explains it better than I can.
