The Curious Realization of Being / Quantum Mechanics / School Calendar 2022-23

The Curious Realization of Being


Let us
see into the reality of who we are.

This place,
is merely space
that is flowing –
like a river
of dreams.
And down by the
river bank we sit,
and we wonder
about the water.

Dreams are
unreal spaces,
place-less places,
flowing through
the canyons of our minds,
until we wake,
reflect a deep
longing to be
and to see
into the reality
of who I am,

We have
a curious realization
of Being.
The space
in which we think
we live,
mirrors what is secret,
a reflection of our real selves
in diverse shades
of dark and light,
momentary traces in time,
portraits drawn by imagination,
so parallel in their dimensions
they almost rhyme.


Objects we perceive are not the ultimate reality.

dances upon the waters
of our Lives –
waters flowing so swiftly
we may never know
the direction for you and me,
is toward
an Eternal Sea.


    And we wonder about the water.

And what is,
or is not,
is Beautifully reflected
in the temporarity
of each moment
meant to be,
or not to be,
as Love,
only Love,
shows us the deeper meaning
of Being.

Plato postulated in
The Republic
that the objects we perceive
are not the ultimate reality,
but more like a shadow of reality.


Our experience is as much a reflection.

And the philosopher Immanuel Kant
gave us insight into the realization
that all we ever know
are the structures generated in our mind.
“The thing-in-itself”,
remains forever unknowable.

The mind is barred
from a direct knowing
of the thing-in-itself.
And our experience is as much a
of the Nature of our mind
as it is of the physical World.

Kant reached the conclusion
that time and space
are not inherent qualities of our physical world;
they are reflections in the mind,
a perceptual framework within which
our experience of the World is constructed.
But this does not mean
that WE can never understand it.


Enlightening avenues of thought.

We do not passively
experience the World;

we are the creators
of the World we experience.
And why
would we not be?
Are we not
Children of God?

Throughout the literature
of Mankind are examples of Spiritual people
who have proclaimed that the whole World
is within them.
And current research provides
new and insightful perspectives
leading to this conclusion.

My Dear Friends,
Religion and science are rapidly merging,
as new philosophical insights,
garnered from scientific research,
are providing more enlightening
avenues of thought.


A reflection in diverse shades of dark and light.

What is found in the precious
Word of God
is becoming more and more
validated and valued.

We know so very, very little
about ourselves
and the World around us.

“We don’t know
a millionth

of one percent
about anything.”
Thomas A. Edison

in this same moment in Time,
we can discover
Ultimate Truths,
Lovingly placed
between the Covers
of a Beautiful Book,
The Holy Bible.
And these comforting
and enlightening words
are patiently waiting for


              Lovingly placed

My Precious Friends,
sometimes what we say
has little worth,
for words,
impregnated by Truth,
are not always
able to give birth.
And so it goes,
the distance we travel
is not always
to the number of steps
we take.

But Love
is the essence
of Truth.

“The Spiritual journey
is the relinquishment, or unlearning,

of fear
and the acceptance of Love
back into our Hearts.
Love is the essential existential fact.
It is our ultimate reality
and our purpose on Earth.
To be consciously aware of it,
to experience Love in us and others,
is the meaning of Life.
Marianne Williamson


  We can also be Loving.

To the degree
we are violent
toward one another,
we can also be
And we are
a truly violent
The second greatest destroyer
of Precious Human Lives
are other Human Beings.

And God spoke
all these words, saying,
“Thou shalt not kill.”
Exodus 20:13

we can become
the most Loving Creation
of all.


         Toward an Eternal Sea.

The gossamer thread
of Life
is spent and spun
and very, very fine:
Life hanging
by a thread.
The tempest tossed
buffeted about by adversity,
leads to this

And why
we of such prosperity,
do not grasp
the fragile thread
of Life
to pull those in such need
aboard this Ship of State,
is beyond our poor ability
to add or detract.

The hand you extend
to others is,
in the Ultimate Reality,
the Hand of God,
as He moves
through us,
through our Sacred Hearts.
we can give a new Birth
of Freedom
to a Life in need.
Hope in a Heartbeat,
beyond all measure,
an ultimate realization of
our Being.

We are all
in the water.
All of us!


So parallel in their dimensions
they almost rhyme.

“I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the Light
Take my hand Precious Lord,
lead me Home.”
– Thomas E. Dorsey


To believe in yourself
is to believe
in That
which gave you

“As we Love others,
we Love ourselves.”


Together we can give a new birth of freedom.

Brace yourselves.
And prepare your children.
The future is coming
faster than the speed of light.


Quantum Mechanics.
NASA scientists have recently confirmed that matter can indeed be in two places at once. In fact, through quantum entanglement, particles millions of light-years apart can be connected without physical contact. .

Space-time can now be manipulated; teleportation is becoming a reality; gravity-resistant material is now heralded for air transport, and virtual science has led to a greater understanding of hyper-dimensional existence.

And you thought,
all they really need to know
is how to read and write!

why everyone should know
who dr. otto warburg was


“Cancer is a complex disease and occurs when cells in the body begin to grow chaotically.  The mass of extra cells forms a growth or tumor. Cells in malignant tumors are abnormal and divide without control or order. These cancer cells can invade and destroy the tissue around them. In a process called metastasis, cancerous cells break away from the organs on which they are growing and travel to other parts of the body, where they continue to grow. Cells from cancerous ovaries, for example, commonly spread to the abdomen and nearby internal organs.

Eventually, they travel throughout the body by invading the two systems of vessels that bathe and feed all of the body’s organs; the bloodstream and lymph system.  Before a PET/CT scan, the patient receives an intravenous injection of radioactive glucose. Many cancer cells are highly metabolic and rapidly synthesize the radioactive glucose.

Information regarding the location of abnormal levels of radioactive glucose obtained from the whole-body PET/CT scan helps physicians effectively pinpoint the source of cancer and detect whether cancer is isolated to one specific area or has spread to other organs.” Cherry-picked from PetScanInfo.com (What is Cancer?).  Also realize that CT &  PET SCANS are huge causes of cancer in and of themselves.

Alfred Nobel grew up in a family of scientists and inventors in Sweden (his father invented plywood in the late 1830’s), becoming a scientist and scholar himself.  Known mostly for taking extremely unstable nitroglycerin, and turning it into stable dynamite (yes, Nobel invented dynamite), he actually held over 350 patents, amassing a massive fortune along the way. 

Never having married; when he died in 1896, his fortune — estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars — was put into a trust created for a very specific purpose.  A group was formed to control these funds, doling out significant amounts of money to the winners nominated by those believing them to be at the top of their field in chemistry, physics, literature, medicine and, and of course peace.  The first prizes were awarded in 1901.

Otto Warburg was born in Germany in 1883.  He rapidly showed his mettle in academics, working in the fields of chemistry, cell biology, biochemistry, and physiology, earning his MD degree in 1911.  He moved rapidly up the ladder of academia, and by 1918 (the end of WWI) had been appointed a professor at Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biology, where his chief work was on tumor metabolism and respiration (he would have achieved this sooner had he not served in Germany’s most elite cavalry unit during ‘The Great War’). 

Although it is said that he would have earned a second Nobel Prize if he had not been part of Hitler’s Germany (he was actually part Jewish), he won the prize in 1931 (he was nominated 46 times in his career).  What did Dr. Warburg discover that was so incredible — worthy of a Nobel Prize?  He figured out that blood sugar (glucose) is Cancer’s meal-of-choice.

According to an article in the November, 2010 issue of Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research (Biographical Sketch: Otto Heinrich Warburg, PhD, MD), Warburg was speaking to a group of other Nobel Laureates when he said…..

“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation.

All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life this difference between normal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarcely picture a greater difference. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely, a fermentation of glucose.”

Basically, Warburg realized that cancer cells shared a universal characteristic — they were hypoxic (low levels of O2), requiring them to find another source of fuel.  Instead of cancer cells going through normal cell respiration using oxygen, they respired anerobically by fermenting glucose and destroying MITOCHONDRIAL ACTIVITY.  By the end of his life he believed and taught that this was the result of exposure to toxicity —- POLLUTION, CHEMICAL TOXICITY, RADIATION, INFLAMMATORY METABOLITES, microbes run amok (we would today call these OCCULT INFECTIONS or “DYSBIOSIS“), as well as ACIDITY

Although the body will do everything in it’s power to maintain HOMEOSTASIS as far as pH is concerned, hyper-acidity tends to lead to cancer, while cancer leads to a state of hyper-acidity (see the final link in the previous paragraph).  It is my belief that the primary area of manifestation is not necessarily the blood, as the body will not let the blood move out of an extremely narrow range of pH without dire consequences (death). 

This acidity is undoubtedly, however, affecting our GUT HEALTH and MICROBIOMES.  Tomorrow (or whenever I get it done), I’ll show you how MEDICATIONS are one of the chief ways we are toxifying our bodies.  The resultant toxicity is related almost every health issue you can name, including CANCER (HERE’S ONE OF THE MORE COMMON ONES).

As Warburg got older (he lived to the ripe old age of 86, working the entire time — not unlike DR. SEYFRIED), the journal mentioned earlier revealed that he took his message of toxicity, and pH control to heart.  “In his later life, he apparently became somewhat eccentric regarding his eating habits, insisting on organic foods long before the current trend, even taking his own produce to restaurants.”  What should this tell you? 

It is imperative that even though neither your doctors nor most of the medical research community give a flip about Otto Warburg’s discoveries the better part of a century ago, you had better grasp their implications if you care about your health and the health of your family.  It’s why even though Mayo and MD Anderson have publicly denounced the Sugar / Cancer” connection (HERE), you would do well not to make the same mistake. 

It’s also why according to peer-review, one of the hottest ways of eating as far as cancer is concerned is the KETOGENIC DIET.   Never forget that sugar not only feeds cancer (HERE), it feeds infection as well (HERE).  And if you’ll click the KD link two lines above, you’ll see that it’s also being used to treat a vast array of other diseases associated with mitochondrial dysfunction (MS, Type II Diabetes, ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc).

Leverage Your Knowledge of the Warburg Effect to Aid in Whatever Cancer Treatment You Choose!

Archiv der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.  Otto Warburg in his lab, researching the 'Sugar-Feeds-Cancer' phenomenon he discovered 100 years ago; the Warburg Effect.

Chronic illness (cancer included) is a colossal bummer. Here’s the thing folks; if Dr. Warburg was correct, there are steps that can be taken to keep yourself healthy.  The truth is, it’s a whole lot easier to prevent cancer than to try and kick it once it’s there. 

This post goes a long way towards giving you preventative solutions.  I’ve incorporated some of his principles into THIS PROTOCOL.  No, it’s not a cure for cancer.  But the results can be amazing nonetheless (HERE).

The Ketogenic Diet:
A Detailed Beginner’s Guide to Keto

We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.

The ketogenic diet (or keto diet, for short) is a low carb, high fat diet that offers many health benefits.

In fact, many studies show that this type of diet can help you lose weight and improve your health (1Trusted Source).

Ketogenic diets may even have benefits against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease (2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).

Here is a detailed beginner’s guide to the keto diet.

What is a ketogenic diet?

Keto basics

The ketogenic diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low carb diets.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain (6Trusted Source).

Ketogenic diets can cause significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has some health benefits (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).


The keto diet is a low carb, high fat diet. It lowers blood sugar and insulin levels and shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and toward fat and ketones.

Different types of ketogenic diets

There are several versions of the ketogenic diet, including:

  • Standard ketogenic diet (SKD): This is a very low carb, moderate protein and high fat diet. It typically contains 70% fat, 20% protein, and only 10% carbs (9Trusted Source).
  • Cyclical ketogenic diet (CKD): This diet involves periods of higher carb refeeds, such as 5 ketogenic days followed by 2 high carb days.
  • Targeted ketogenic diet (TKD): This diet allows you to add carbs around workouts.
  • High protein ketogenic diet: This is similar to a standard ketogenic diet, but includes more protein. The ratio is often 60% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs.

However, only the standard and high protein ketogenic diets have been studied extensively. Cyclical or targeted ketogenic diets are more advanced methods and primarily used by bodybuilders or athletes.

The information in this article mostly applies to the standard ketogenic diet (SKD), although many of the same principles also apply to the other versions.


There are several versions of the keto diet. The standard (SKD) version is the most researched and most recommended.

What is ketosis?

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body uses fat for fuel instead of carbs.

It occurs when you significantly reduce your consumption of carbohydrates, limiting your body’s supply of glucose (sugar), which is the main source of energy for the cells.

Following a ketogenic diet is the most effective way to enter ketosis. Generally, this involves limiting carb consumption to around 20 to 50 grams per day and filling up on fats, such as meat, fish, eggs, nuts, and healthy oils (6Trusted Source).

It’s also important to moderate your protein consumption. This is because protein can be converted into glucose if consumed in high amounts, which may slow your transition into ketosis (10Trusted Source).

Practicing intermittent fasting could also help you enter ketosis faster. There are many different forms of intermittent fasting, but the most common method involves limiting food intake to around 8 hours per day and fasting for the remaining 16 hours (11Trusted Source).

Blood, urine, and breath tests are available, which can help determine whether you’ve entered ketosis by measuring the amount of ketones produced by your body.

Certain symptoms may also indicate that you’ve entered ketosis, including increased thirst, dry mouth, frequent urination, and decreased hunger or appetite (12Trusted Source).


Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body uses fat for fuel instead of carbs. Modifying your diet and practicing intermittent fasting can help you enter ketosis faster. Certain tests and symptoms can also help determine whether you’ve entered ketosis.

Ketogenic diets can help you lose weight

A ketogenic diet is an effective way to lose weight and lower risk factors for disease (1Trusted Source, 2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).

In fact, research shows that the ketogenic diet may be as effective for weight loss as a low fat diet (13Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source, 15Trusted Source).

What’s more, the diet is so filling that you can lose weight without counting calories or tracking your food intake (16Trusted Source).

One review of 13 studies found that following a very low carb, ketogenic diet was slightly more effective for long-term weight loss than a low fat diet. People who followed the keto diet lost an average of 2 pounds (0.9 kg) more than the group that followed a low fat diet (13Trusted Source).

What’s more, it also led to reductions in diastolic blood pressure and triglyceride levels (13Trusted Source).

Another study in 34 older adults found that those who followed a ketogenic diet for 8 weeks lost nearly five times as much total body fat as those who followed a low fat diet (17Trusted Source).

The increased ketones, lower blood sugar levels, and improved insulin sensitivity may also play a key role (18Trusted Source, 19Trusted Source).

For more details on the weight loss effects of a ketogenic diet, read this article.


A ketogenic diet can help you lose slightly more weight than a low fat diet. This often happens with less hunger.

Ketogenic diets for diabetes and prediabetes

Diabetes is characterized by changes in metabolism, high blood sugar, and impaired insulin function (20Trusted Source).

The ketogenic diet can help you lose excess fat, which is closely linked to type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and metabolic syndrome (21Trusted Source, 22Trusted Source, 23Trusted Source, 24Trusted Source).

One older study found that the ketogenic diet improved insulin sensitivity by a whopping 75% (25Trusted Source).

A small study in women with type 2 diabetes also found that following a ketogenic diet for 90 days significantly reduced levels of hemoglobin A1C, which is a measure of long-term blood sugar management (26Trusted Source).

Another study in 349 people with type 2 diabetes found that those who followed a ketogenic diet lost an average of 26.2 pounds (11.9 kg) over a 2-year period. This is an important benefit when considering the link between weight and type 2 diabetes (Trusted Source24Trusted Source, 27Trusted Source).

What’s more, they also experienced improved blood sugar management, and the use of certain blood sugar medications decreased among participants throughout the course of the study (Trusted Source27Trusted Source).


The ketogenic diet can boost insulin sensitivity and cause fat loss, leading to significant health benefits for people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes.

Other health benefits of keto

The ketogenic diet actually originated as a tool for treating neurological diseases such as epilepsy.

Studies have now shown that the diet can have benefits for a wide variety of different health conditions:

  • Heart disease. The ketogenic diet can help improve risk factors like body fat, HDL (good) cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and blood sugar (28Trusted Source, 29Trusted Source).
  • Cancer. The diet is currently being explored as an additional treatment for cancer, because it may help slow tumor growth. (4Trusted Source, 30Trusted Source, 31Trusted Source).
  • Alzheimer’s disease. The keto diet may help reduce symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and slow its progression (5Trusted Source, 32Trusted Source, 33Trusted Source).
  • Epilepsy. Research has shown that the ketogenic diet can cause significant reductions in seizures in epileptic children (3Trusted Source).
  • Parkinson’s disease. Although more research is needed, one study found that the diet helped improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (34Trusted Source).
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome. The ketogenic diet can help reduce insulin levels, which may play a key role in polycystic ovary syndrome (35Trusted Source, 36Trusted Source).
  • Brain injuries. Some research suggests that the diet could improve outcomes of traumatic brain injuries (37Trusted Source).

However, keep in mind that research into many of these areas is far from conclusive.


A ketogenic diet may provide many health benefits, especially with metabolic, neurological, or insulin-related diseases.

Foods to avoid

Any food that’s high in carbs should be limited.

Here’s a list of foods that need to be reduced or eliminated on a ketogenic diet:

  • sugary foods: soda, fruit juice, smoothies, cake, ice cream, candy, etc.
  • grains or starches: wheat-based products, rice, pasta, cereal, etc.
  • fruit: all fruit, except small portions of berries like strawberries
  • beans or legumes: peas, kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, etc.
  • root vegetables and tubers: potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc.
  • low fat or diet products: low fat mayonnaise, salad dressings, and condiments
  • some condiments or sauces: barbecue sauce, honey mustard, teriyaki sauce, ketchup, etc.
  • unhealthy fats: processed vegetable oils, mayonnaise, etc.
  • alcohol: beer, wine, liquor, mixed drinks
  • sugar-free diet foods: sugar-free candies, syrups, puddings, sweeteners, desserts, etc.

Avoid carb-based foods like grains, sugars, legumes, rice, potatoes, candy, juice, and even most fruits.

Foods to eat

You should base the majority of your meals around these foods:

  • meat: red meat, steak, ham, sausage, bacon, chicken, and turkey
  • fatty fish: salmon, trout, tuna, and mackerel
  • eggs: pastured or omega-3 whole eggs
  • butter and cream: grass-fed butter and heavy cream
  • cheese: unprocessed cheeses like cheddar, goat, cream, blue, or mozzarella
  • nuts and seeds: almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, etc.
  • healthy oils: extra virgin olive oil, and avocado oil
  • avocados: whole avocados or freshly made guacamole
  • low carb veggies: green veggies, tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc.
  • condiments: salt, pepper, herbs, and spices

It’s best to base your diet mostly on whole, single-ingredient foods.


Base the majority of your diet on foods such as meat, fish, eggs, butter, nuts, healthy oils, avocados, and plenty of low carb veggies.

and this keto shopping list.


You can eat a wide variety of tasty and nutritious meals on a ketogenic diet. It’s not all meats and fats. Vegetables are an important part of the diet.

Healthy keto snacks

In case you get hungry between meals, here are some healthy, keto-approved snacks:


Great snacks for a keto diet include pieces of meat, cheese, olives, boiled eggs, nuts, raw veggies, and dark chocolate.

Keto tips and tricks

Although getting started on the ketogenic diet can be challenging, there are several tips and tricks that you can use to make it easier.

  • Start by familiarizing yourself with food labels and checking the grams of fat, carbs, and fiber to determine how your favorite foods can fit into your diet.
  • Planning out your meals in advance may also be beneficial and can help you save extra time throughout the week.
  • Many websites, food blogs, apps, and cookbooks also offer keto-friendly recipes and meal ideas that you can use to build your own custom menu.
  • Alternatively, some meal delivery services even offer keto-friendly options for a quick and convenient way to enjoy keto meals at home.
  • Look into healthy frozen keto meals when you’re short on time
  • When going to social gatherings or visiting family and friends, you may also want to consider bringing your own food, which can make it much easier to curb cravings and stick to your meal plan.

Reading food labels, planning your meals ahead, and bringing your own foods when visiting family and friends can make it much easier to stick to the ketogenic diet.

Tips for eating out on a ketogenic diet

Many restaurant meals can be made keto-friendly.

Most restaurants offer some kind of meat or fish-based dish. Order this and replace any high carb food with extra vegetables.

Egg-based meals are also a great option, such as an omelet or eggs and bacon.

Another favorite is bun-less burgers. You could also swap the fries for vegetables instead. Add extra avocado, cheese, bacon, or eggs.

At Mexican restaurants, you can enjoy any type of meat with extra cheese, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream.

For dessert, ask for a mixed cheese board or berries with cream.


When eating out, select a meat-, fish-, or egg-based dish. Order extra veggies instead of carbs or starches, and have cheese for dessert.

Side effects and how to minimize them

Although the ketogenic diet is usually safe for most healthy people, there may be some initial side effects while your body adapts.

There’s some anecdotal evidence of these effects often referred to as the keto flu (38Trusted Source). Based on reports from some on the eating plan, it’s usually over within a few days.

Reported keto flu symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting (39Trusted Source). Other less common symptoms include:

  • poor energy and mental function
  • increased hunger
  • sleep issues
  • nausea
  • digestive discomfort
  • decreased exercise performance

To minimize this, you can try a regular low carb diet for the first few weeks. This may teach your body to burn more fat before you completely eliminate carbs.

A ketogenic diet can also change the water and mineral balance of your body, so adding extra salt to your meals or taking mineral supplements may help. Talk to your doctor about your nutritional needs.

At least in the beginning, it’s important to eat until you’re full and avoid restricting calories too much. Usually, a ketogenic diet causes weight loss without intentional calorie restriction.


Many of the side effects of starting a ketogenic diet can be limited. Easing into the diet and taking mineral supplements can help.

Risks of the keto diet

Staying on the keto diet in the long term may have some negative effectsTrusted Source, including risks of the following:

  • low protein in the blood
  • extra fat in the liver
  • kidney stones
  • micronutrient deficiencies

A type of medication called sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors for type 2 diabetes can increase the risk for diabetic ketoacidosis, a dangerous condition that increases blood acidity. Anyone taking this medication should avoid the keto diet (40Trusted Source, 41Trusted Source).

More research is being done to determine the safety of the keto diet in the long term. Keep your doctor informed of your eating plan to guide your choices.


There are some side effects to the keto diet about which you should speak to your doctor if you plan to stay on the diet long term.

Supplements for a ketogenic diet

Although no supplements are required, some can be useful.


Certain supplements can be beneficial on a ketogenic diet. These include exogenous ketones, MCT oil, and minerals.

Frequently asked questions

Here are answers to some of the most common questions about the ketogenic diet.

1. Can I ever eat carbs again?

Yes. However, it’s important to significantly reduce your carb intake initially. After the first 2 to 3 months, you can eat carbs on special occasions — just return to the diet immediately after.

2. Will I lose muscle?

There’s a risk of losing some muscle on any diet. However, protein intake and high ketone levels may help minimize muscle loss, especially if you lift weights (50Trusted Source, 51Trusted Source).

3. Can I build muscle on a ketogenic diet?

Yes, but it may not work as well as on a moderate carb diet (52Trusted Source, 53Trusted Source).

4. How much protein can I eat?

Protein should be moderate, as a very high intake can spike insulin levels and lower ketones. Around 35% of total calorie intake is probably the upper limit.

5. What if I am constantly tired, weak, or fatigued?

You may not be in full ketosis or be utilizing fats and ketones efficiently. To counter this, lower your carb intake and revisit the points above. A supplement like MCT oil or ketones may also help (42Trusted Source, 43Trusted Source).

6. My urine smells fruity. Why is this?

Don’t be alarmed. This is simply due to the excretion of by-products created during ketosis (54Trusted Source).

7. My breath smells. What can I do?

This is a common side effect. Try drinking naturally flavored water or chewing sugar-free gum.

8. I heard ketosis was extremely dangerous. Is this true?

People often confuse ketosis with ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is dangerous, but the ketosis on a ketogenic diet is usually fine for healthy people. Speak to your doctor before starting any new diet.

9. I have digestion issues and diarrhea. What can I do?

This common side effect usually passes after 3 to 4 weeks. If it persists, try eating more high fiber veggies (55Trusted Source, 56).

The bottom line

A ketogenic diet can be great for people who:

  • are overweight
  • have diabetes
  • are looking to improve their metabolic health

It may be less suitable for elite athletes or those wishing to add large amounts of muscle or weight.

It may also not be sustainable for some people’s lifestyles and preferences. Speak with your doctor about your eating plan and goals to decide if a keto eating plan right for you.
