Is the Ketogenic Diet Safe for Everyone? – Diagnosis:Diet

Posted: December 31, 2017 at 3:42 pm

Is a ketogenic diet safe for you?

First and foremost, if you pick up a copy of Jimmy Moore and Dr. Eric Westmans excellent new book, Keto Clarity(which I highly recommendsee my review here) and feel (understandably) inspired to immediately embark on a ketogenic diet, I would caution anyone with a serious chronic health problem, especially anyone who is taking prescription medications, not to attempt a ketogenic diet on his/her own without medical supervision.

Even though I personally believe in the power of ketogenic diets to improve and even reverse many chronic illnesses, from diabetes to chronic fatigue to mood disorders, the diet does this by causing very real shifts in body chemistry that can have a major impact on medication dosages and side effects, especially during the first few weeks.

Examples of problematic situations include sudden drops in blood pressure for those on blood pressure medications (such as Lasix, Lisinopril, and Atenolol), and sudden drops in blood sugar for those on diabetes medications (especially insulin). These changes in blood pressure and blood sugar are very positive and healthy, but the presence of medications can artificially intensify these effects and cause extreme and sometimes dangerous reactions unless your dosage is carefully monitored by you and your clinician in the first month or so.

Another important example of a medicine that would require careful monitoring is Lithium, an antidepressant and mood stabilizing medicine. The ketogenic diet causes the body to let go of excess water during the first few days, which can cause Lithium to become more concentrated in the blood, potentially rising to uncomfortable or even toxic levels.

These are just a few important examples, so regardless of what medication you take, please consult with your clinician before getting started.

Some health situations which call for careful medical supervision include (please note this is not a complete list):

Anorexia bears special mention. As a psychiatrist, I feel compelled to go into some detail about this particular condition. Men and women with anorexia have an irrationally intense fear of weight gain that distorts their perception of body image and is typically associated with an extreme fear of eating fat. Most people with anorexia try to minimize their weight through starvation-level calorie restriction and complete avoidance of dietary fat, which is very dangerous. Keep in mind that the body can function perfectly well without carbohydrates but it cannot function without fat. The brain cannot function without dietary fat (approximately 2/3 of the brain is made of fat) and the body cannot digest and absorb vital nutrients without dietary fat as part of every meal. While it is slowly becoming more common knowledge that carbohydrates are far more fattening than dietary fat, it is rare in my practice to meet a person with anorexia who does not eat carbohydrates regularly (even if it is only secretly during the night and with tremendous guilt) this is because anorexia causes starvation, and people who are starving get very hungry. When this happens, they tend to choose low-fat or non-fat carbohydrate-rich snacks. They are less afraid of eating sweets and starches than fatty foods, because sweets are lower in calories.

If a person with anorexia decides to embark on a ketogenic diet, it may be tempting to try to do so without eating the proper amount of fat. This can be deadly, because the ketogenic diet already limits protein and severely restricts carbohydrates. If fat is also limited, starvation will rapidly occur, especially if you do not have plenty of body fat to burn for energy.

However, with careful medical and psychiatric supervision, a ketogenic diet rich in healthy fats can be potentially very healing for people with anorexia, as it can restore proper body and brain composition, naturally regulate appetite and weight, and eliminate carbohydrate cravings. Since it is a nutritionally adequate diet high in fat, it is excellent for brain health and can therefore potentially correct the emotional imbalance and cognitive impairment that are typical of this serious illness. There are compelling arguments for the use of ketogenic diets in bipolar mood disorders, as well.

All that having been said, please dont let these cautionary statements stand in your waytalk to your health care professional about your particular situation, and if he/she does not feel comfortable or knowledgeable enough about the diet, recommend Jimmy Moores new book, and/or find someone else who is! Jimmy Moore keeps a list of keto-friendly doctors at

Even if you do not take medication or have a serious health problem, you may want to consult with a knowledgeable clinician, especially during the first month or two, to help you troubleshoot any issues that may arise, but ultimately the ketogenic diet is a safe and healthy diet for the vast majority of human beingscertainly much safer and healthier than the standard American diet, which should come in a package with a skull and crossbones on it A properly-formulated ketogenic diet contains everything the brain and body require to function well. Not everyone benefits or feels well on it, but most can and do. For those of you who do not feel well on it, please read Freshness Counts: Histamine Intolerance, which explains how biogenic amines, which are compounds in aged and fermented foods like salami and cheese (very popular in ketogenic circles), can cause miserable food sensitivity symptoms in some people.

HCG Diet Drops – HCG Diet

Posted: December 28, 2017 at 1:41 am

HCG Diet Drops Guide

What you need to know when taking HCG drops

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, and is a natural hormone created by the human body.

Its first connection to weight loss was made by Dr. Simeons, who found that it had tremendous benefits when it came to losing weight, due to its appetite suppressing properties.

The hormone within the HCG drops allows the body to burn up excess abnormal fat stores and can also curb your cravings for starch and sugar.

26-Day Kit vs. 40-Day Kit

There is no treatment lasting less than 26 days for patients who only want to lose a few pounds.

If patients reach a normal weight faster than the 26 days, they are given a diet of 800 1000 calories for the rest of treatment. This ensures that their weight remains constant throughout the remaining days on the HCG hormone.

Treatment is stopped when either 34 pounds are lost or 40 injections/drops have been given. The only exception to this rule is for grotesquely obese patients who are allowed an extra 5-6 pounds of weight loss before the limit of 40 cycles of drops has been reached.

Tips and Tricks While on the HCG diet

Make sure you are taking your doses three times a day. Getting The HCG formula in your system not only help you release stored fat throughout the day so you are burning an adequate amount of calories each day, but it also helps the amino acidswork in your body.

The HCG formula contains ingredients to help your body through the low calorie portion of the diet. If you arent getting the right amount of drops, you might feel too hungry, or you might run out early! Both of these things can be avoid if you learn the proper dosage for HCG Drops.

You may use the glass dropper in the bottle and count 8 drops under your tongue three times a day. Or you can use 0.38ML under the tongue three times per day.

The oral syringe can be tricky to use, but when you pull the syringe, allow the liquid to come up the tube, and stop as soon as the drops touch the black line.

Homeopathic Vs. Real HCG Drops

HCG drops are the most simple method of consuming the HCG hormone. It involves no mixing, needles, syringes, or injections. The drops can be obtained from local medical offices, pharmacies or through an online distributor.

The drawbacks to taking the drops over the injections could be the thirty minutes you must wait before eating. This is done to ensure the drops are absorbed, and limits the possibility of the drops not affecting the body correctly.

If the body does not absorb the drops properly, it will leave dieters hungry, and without consistent results.

Amino Acids and Vitamin B

HCG Triumph drops do not require a prescription, are completely in compliance with FDA regulations and are safe to use. Our brand particularly uses a FDA regulated laboratory that procures HCG in a purified way to make the HCG formula with amino acids. Trace amounts of HCG can be found in your urine and that is why the doctors take a urine sample when performing a pregnancy test. It has nothing to do with urine it is just flushed out of your body by urination. Therefore those trace amounts can be extracted and utilized for other purposed through a separation and purification process in a FDA regulated lab that procures a pharmaceutical grade of the HCG that is enough to be effective on your diet program. Once the HCG hormone has been extracted and purified, it is combined into our formula that also includes amino acids to help support your body during the duration of the diet.

What is the Military Diet? How to lose 10 pounds in three days

Posted: December 25, 2017 at 1:41 am

The Military diet is sometimes called the 3 Day Diet, because it must be followed for 3 days. The diet is split into two parts over a week. You follow the Military Diet for 3 days and then take 4 days off. But if you want to lose more weight over the long term, follow the Military Diet for a month and you can lose up to 30 pounds. This means doing the diet four times in a month, 3 days on, 4 days off. For really optimal results, we also recommend using this 4 day off plan as a guide to keep losing weight on your days off.

Pushups not required on the Military Diet, camoflage optional

The food combinations on the 3 day Military Diet are designed to burn fat, kick start your metabolism and lose weight fast. The Military Diet is one of the best diets out there for fast weight loss without supplements or pills. The diet is a combination of low calorie, chemically compatible foods designed to work together and jump start your weight loss. And because the diet is 3 days on and 4 days off, the Military Diet doesnt slow down your metabolism like other diets. The foods on the Military Diet provide energy and control sugar swings so you keep burning fat for all three days.

Follow the 3 day Military diet plan and you will lose weight.

The Military Diet really works in emergency situations. People all over the world have used the original 3 day Military Diet to lose weight fast. Lets say you have to fit into a wedding dress pronto, take a cruise, or your ex is coming to town and you want to make them drool. The Military Diet is for people who need to shed unwanted pounds quickly.

An upcoming wedding certainly qualifies as a weight loss emergency

The Military Diet is easy to follow with fast results to keep you motivated. A hunger pang here and there doesnt compare to getting on the scale and seeing actual results. To see the best results, weigh yourself before you eat anything on the first day. Sure its tempting, but dont weigh yourself until the morning after youve finished the diet, the forth day. Dont forget to take measurements too, especially your waist.

People that fail on the Military Diet complain about hunger or low energy because they are used to eating way more calories in a day. Thats how they gained weight in the first place, by eating more calories than they burned off. Whats a three day diet in exchange for losing up to 10 pounds a week? As a bonus, the Military Diet is probably cheaper than what youre eating right now.

Losing weight isnt complicated on the Military Diet. If you stick to the diet plan, youll see the kind of results that are often promised by others and never delivered. Dont waste your time on diets that dont work. (Dont be fooled by copycats, this is the original 3 Day Military Diet with every detail you need to succeed right here on this website.) Our research and experience is often imitated, but never as good as the real thing.

Overweight people spend billions of dollars every year on products and services that promise miraculous results. Weve got everything you need to succeed on the Military Diet. Welcome and let the weight loss begin

Don’t Take HGH Injections Until You Read This …

Posted: December 24, 2017 at 8:44 am

Humans have long dreamed of a wonder drug, something to help us stay young and energetic forever simply by swallowing a pill or drinking a magic potion. Some think that injections of human growth hormone might be that secret ingredient to eternal youth. However, there are some very serious considerations that must be taken into account before using HGH injections. In this article we will discuss the science behind HGH injections, how they are made, some of the most popular brands, and concerns about their effects. In addition, we will discuss the science and effects of prescription HGH releaser injections such as Egrifta.

Why Use HGH Injections?

Human growth hormone (HGH) is produced in the pituitary gland at the base of the brain, and from there it is secreted into the bloodstream in regular cycles, most often when we are asleep. As children, our brains generate high amounts of HGH to help us grow up, and while we grow the hormone also keeps our cells, tissues and organs functioning as they should. However, the amount of HGH that our bodies produce drops dramatically when we are twenty to when we are sixty. According to one source, our HGH total can drop from 700 units per day to 400 units per day, or even lower. Scientists are finding evidence, starting from a 1990 study in the New England Journal of Medicine, that this decline in HGH can contribute to many of the problems of aging and many now theorize that increasing the amount of HGH that the body produces can reverse, or at least reduce, those problems.

Furthermore, there are individuals with medical conditions relating to a deficiency in HGH. Growth hormone deficiency is more common in children than in adults. For adults, the deficiency usually comes from tumors in the brain or radiation treatment for those tumors, as well as from growth hormone deficiency that began while they were children. This can result in male baldness, memory loss, reduced sex drive, lower energy strength, a higher amount of body fat, raised cholesterol, and even cardiac dysfunction, according to one authority.

For children, the growth hormone deficiency is also present in disorders such as Prader-Willi Syndrome and Turner Syndrome, idiopathic short stature, Noonan Syndrome, chronic kidney disease, short stature homeobox-containing gene deficiency, or in infants who are small for their gestational age as another expert explains. Adults who suffer from wasting as a result of AIDS also can benefit from HGH replacement. Many authoritative sources say that these deficiencies can lead to lack of growth, delayed puberty, weight gain, frontal recession, sparse hair, and maxillary hypoplasia, which is over-development of the jaw. Injections of artificial HGH can replace some of the hormone deficiency and lessen the effects of these disorders. Adults who suffer from wasting as a result of AIDS also can benefit from HGH replacement.

How Are HGH Injections Manufactured?

Recombinant DNA

The first growth hormone injections occurred in the 1950s. The hormone was extracted from the pituitary glands of corpses, and after purification, injected into individuals suffering from growth hormone deficiencies. However, because the supply of the hormone was limited and few physicians were trained to provide it, wikipedia claims that only around 7,700 children in the US, and 27,000 children in other parts of the world were given these injections between the years of 1963 and 1985. Furthermore, scientists eventually became aware that using hormone extracted from corpses may have increased patients vulnerability to Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease. (This is a fatal disorder similar to mad cow disease that causes the brain to deteriorate.) Between 1985 and 2003, twenty-six of the 7,700 American individuals who had received HGH from the pituitary glands of corpses developed Creutzfeldt-Jacob.

In 1981, a Swedish company called Kabi and Genentech, an American corporation, created recombinant human growth hormone (rHGH). Recombinant HGH is a synthetic form of the hormone made from recombinant DNA technology. Under this technology, as one authority explains, DNA sequences from different sources are cut out from their original molecules by restriction enzymes, and then brought together in forms not found in nature. DNA from an outside source is tied to host DNA sequences that cause the host DNA to be replicated. This method allows both sets of DNA to be replicated at the same time by the host. In the case of rHGH, human DNA is implanted in bacteria, and then the protein is replicated repeatedly. The process creates a form of rHGH that works in the human body, but is quick and easy to reproduce. In the years since rHGH was first produced, none of the growth hormone-deficient patients that have received injections have developed Creutzfeld-Jacob disease.

What Are the Ingredients in rHGH Injections?

Genentech created Protropin, the first brand of rHGH injection, in 1985 and stopped offering it for sale in 2004. It was made from somatrem, which is a type of synthetic growth hormone with 192 amino acids. These include the usual one 191 acids that are found in somatropin, the more common form of HGH, with the addition of methionine, which helps build proteins and provides sulfur and methyl to regulate the metabolism. According to Mayo, human DNA was tied to e-coli bacteria in order to create Protropin rHGH. Protropin was a white powder intended to be injected under the skin. It contained somatrem, mannitol, and sodium phosphates. Bacteriostatic Water with benzyl alcohol was used to purify it, and sometimes phosphoric acid was used to adjust the substances pH, according to

Somatropin, Mayo explains, is a form of synthetic HGH with 191 amino acids. This is the same number of acids that natural HGH contains, but like Protropin it is generated from tying human DNA to e-coli.The most popular brands of somatropin include Genotropin, Saizen, Norditropin, Humatrope, Accretropin, Tev-Tropin and Omnitrope. These products contain substances such as mannitol, sodium chloride, Phenol (as a preservative), benzyl alcohol, sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate, glycine, disodium hydrogen phosphate heptahydrate, Bacteriostatic Water, sucrose, phosphoric acid, dibasic sodium phospate, glycerin, sodium dihydrogen phosphate anhydrous, and disodium phosphate anhydrous. Most of the rHGH products are available in the form of a white powder that must be injected subcutaneously, but Omnitrope and Accretropin come as liquid solutions, explains.

What Is Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone?

Products such as Egrifta contain growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). However, wikipedia explains that unlike Protropin and Genotropin, these injections do not replace deficient amounts of human growth hormone with rHGH. Instead, they contain artificially-created human growth hormone releasing factor, or HGHRF. GHRH is a hormone consisting of forty-four amino acids produced by the hypothalamus in the human brain. It travels to the pituitary gland in regular cycles and stimulates it to produce HGH, as well as promoting slow-wave sleep, the level of sleep in which the pituitary releases the highest amounts of HGH. Because they are not intended to insert HGH into the body, but rather to promote the secretion of the hormone by the fully-operational pituitary gland, they are not used to treat growth hormone deficiencies. Instead, they are most often prescribed for lipodystrophy, or the degenerative or abnormal condition of human fat tissue, especially in individuals with HIV.

Egrifta contains tesamorelin, an acetate salt that contains the identical sequence of amino acids to GHRH, and mannitol, experts say. Other sources add that tesamorelin can also contain sodium chloride and both dibasic and monobasic sodium phosphate. The acetate is available in the form of powder, intended to be injected under the skin. Older products used Sermorelin, which was another artifical form of GHRH although it only contained twenty-nine of the original forty-four amino acids. considers it the shortest fragment of GHRH that is fully functional, and it is still used to test levels of HGH secretion.

Are There Any Concerns about rHGH and rHGHRF?

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved rHGH injections for the use of patients who suffer from growth hormone deficiency-related disorders. However, experts warn that the injections are only legally available with a doctors prescription, and the FDA does prosecute those individuals who obtain them illegally.

There are concerns even for patients who are legally prescribed rHGH injections. One authority points out that for children, the injections must be taken daily, for at least as long as the child is growing. (For the more severe cases of growth hormone deficiency, the individual might have to use injections for the rest of his or her life.) The cost is usually from US$10,000 to $30,000 a year. In addition, while most children with growth hormone deficiency receive treatment, the majority of adults who suffer from those conditions do not. One common reason is that the adults do not wish to have to regularly experience the injections. Furthermore, a source argues that because the benefits of rHGH therapy are still considered uncertain by some scientists, many endocrinologists will not even prescribe the injections for adults except in the most severe cases.

Another major area of concern is the side effects that are associated with both rHGH and rHGHRF injections. According to one expert, women who are pregnant should not take Egrifta or other products that contain tesamorelin, because they can cause birth defects in the fetus. Furthermore, those with allergies to any of the ingredients, respiratory problems, recent trauma or surgery, kidney or liver disease, pressure in the head, diabetes, cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, edema, or retinopathy must consult with their doctor before beginning to take rHGHRF. Sources claim that these products can cause fluid retention, changes in blood or urine sugar levels, and may cause red, itching skin, rash, hives, swelling of the hands, feet, lips or face, and shortness of breath. Some of the common side effects include pain in joints, muscles, arms, or legs, difficulty moving, and bleeding, coldness, blistering, skin discoloration, infection, soreness, stinging, or inflammation at the injection site. Meanwhile less common effects may include blurry vision, numbness or tingling, dizziness, fast or irregular pulse, nervousness, joint swelling, unsteadiness, weakness in the limbs, headache, pounding in the ears, chest pain, belching, sour stomach, lack of appetite, discouragement and depression, heartburn, loss of pleasure or interest, muscle spasms and strain, nausea, insomnia, fatigue, vomiting, upper abdominal pain, sweating, and lack of ability to concentrate.

Furthermore, there are various side effects associated with rHGH injections as well. According to some experts, these can include swelling of the limbs and face, bleeding gums, dizziness, nosebleeds and bleeding gums, joint pain, difficulty in moving, coughing up blood, rapid weight gain, red or dark urine or stools, tingling sensations in extremities, and skin discoloration. More rare side effects can include damage to vision, change in personality, bone pain or fracture, chills, constipation, headache, dry mouth, confusion, fever, an increase in thirst, hunger and urination, curvature of the spine, rapid pulse, indigestion, joint pain, loss of consciousness, vomiting, weakness, jaundice, seizures, nausea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, fatigue, tumors and skin lesions, and swelling of the breasts in both males and females. Furthermore, it may cause pressure in the head, pancreatitis, and fluid retention. The evidence about the injections effect on unborn children and nursing mothers is, as yet, inconclusive.

Experts warn that any individual who believes that rHGH or rHGHGF might be right for them should consult with a doctor before beginning treatment. However, even though these injections may not be the magical pill to keep us eternally young and healthy, their effects are very important for those who need some extra help to grow and become strong, and that makes them wonderful enough. However If you are considering HGH to only help you lose weight and feel younger and are not suffering from serious HGH defficiency then opting first for a natural HGH releaser like GHR1000, Genf20 Plus, Sytropin or Genfx might just be enough.

“The key to staying motivated to lose weight is similar to the [amount of] fuel in a caryou don’t need the motivation tank to be full to drive, you just need to prevent it from running empty,” says Joshua C. Klapow, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and author of Living SMART: 5 Essential Skills to Change Your Health Habits Forever. “I tell people not to waste precious time and energy on staying highly motivated because motivation has a natural rhythm. Most people see a drop in motivation as a signal of failure, but it’s not,” he says.

If you notice that your weight loss motivation is waning, give yourself a break from your diet or exercise plan for one to three days, Klapow says. “The problem with motivation is that the more people try to catch’ it, the more elusive it becomes; by allowing it to run its natural course and at the same time having a set of habit-changing skills (such as a meal plan for the week), you’ll stay on track and your motivation levels will run their natural course.”

Dr. Oz Weight Loss Secrets – Dr Oz How To Lose Weight

Posted: December 20, 2017 at 10:50 am

How reader Nancy Schuessler found the motivation to lose more than 200 pounds

I’ve always struggled with my weight. By the time I was 28, I weighed nearly 400 pounds, and I felt that if I tried to have kids I’d be jeopardizing not just my life, but the life of the child I was carrying. I saw Dr. Oz on Oprah talking about his health philosophy, so I started exercising daily and cut out trans fats, saturated fats, refined sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and bleached flour. If something contained one of those, I automatically wouldn’t eat itand amazingly, the pounds started falling off. Two years later, I had lost 220 pounds with no medical intervention. In November 2009, I appeared on The Dr. Oz Show to talk about my decision to lose weight so that I could have children. At the end of the show, I surprised the audience by having my son, Benaiah, walk out onto the stage!
