Up until I found keto (high-fat, low-carb living) I was in the a€?eat every 2-3 hours in order to control blood sugara€? camp. After a couple of weeks of eating Fat Fueled, keto, I no longer struggled with hypoglycemia. I invited Dietitian Cassie on the show today to help explain exactly what happens to our blood sugar when we eat fat – the ins and outs of insulin resistance, actions that affect blood sugar, how to use carb-ups to heal insulin resistance and much more. Todaya€™s keto video encourages us to use dietary fat as our ally, to rely on it to support balanced blood sugar, thriving hormones and a healthy body. Dietitian Cassie and her team are passionate about debunking diet rumors, myths and fads, while teaching people how to eat real foods in balance to help them feel their best. Cassie: This is really right up my alley, especially because throughout all my schooling to be a dietitian I was taught the conventional nutrition approaches. This was really frustrating for me personally, because I embraced what I was learning, trying to be the best dietitian student I could be, and I felt awful. When I got my RD LD credentials and really dug into the research, I found out that what I was learning in school wasn’t even matching up with what I was finding to be true in the actual research. There comes a point when you have to step back and look at what makes sense and what doesn’t. I go as far as saying that 90% of our health concerns are related to nutrition and what you put into your body.
Leanne: My community is mostly high-fat, low-carbohydrate, more ketogenic style of eating, and I get a lot of questions about, “What is blood glucose? You want to keep your blood sugar level stable so that glucagon can come out, and if you’re constantly increasing your blood sugar levels or riding the blood sugar roller coaster I like to call it by eating a diet full of, just too much carbohydrate, which is different for everyone. The problem with eating any carbohydrate without fat is when you just turn it into straight sugar it spikes your blood sugar level, and then what happens? Cassie: You want to be sensitive to insulin, because insulin resistance is what happens when your cells are exposed to too much insulin too often, because those blood sugar levels are constantly elevated following that standard American diet. The good news is your cells can, they can actually regain their sensitivity if you give them a break, from not exposing them to so much insulin. I think the cool thing, the really good thing about eating to balance your blood sugars is that no one wants to get resistant to insulin, so whether you’re insulin-resistant, whether you have diabetes, whether you have pre-diabetes, whatever it is, everyone can benefit from eating more healthy fat and eating more PFC balance versus following that high-carbohydrate diet.
Leanne: I chatted with Jimmy about this a couple of months ago when we did an interview about low-carb high-fat keto people, and they notice that their blood glucose levels increase in the morning.
I knew there was a reason for it, and I don’t always know exactly why, so this is why, now that you mention cortisol. Your hormones play a huge role in your metabolism and your weight and even your blood sugars. You and I were even talking before we started recording about this new blog post that I put out called Ten Non-Dietary Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Weight. If you do the same exercise routine over and over again, you can start to lose some of the benefits.
This is what I was thinking of earlier when you said if someone’s eating no carbs at all. As far as fruit and as far as sweet potatoes, the starchier carbohydrates, we do recommend being careful with those, especially if someone already has insulin resistance or Type 2 Diabetes, or even if they’re just trying to lose weight, because those are the ones that are going to raise your blood sugar levels the most. Then if weight loss is a goal, well, it’s kind of interesting how you do start to lose weight when you add in more fat, which is a little bit backwards, because remember, fat has more calories. The first macro-nutrient you restrict when you start counting calories is fat, but wait, fat helps with weight loss because it buffers the effect of carbohydrates and causes a decreased need for insulin, your fat-storing hormone, so when you really look at the science, it makes sense to eat fat; right? Then when I got into this higher-fat, more balanced eating approach, I found that my third and fourth marathon, I didn’t even have to eat at all during my marathons. When you have fat in your body, it helps stretch out your carbohydrates and you don’t feel that way, because you feel so balanced. Now that we’ve talked today about the normal blood sugar response and how that happens and you understand the science behind the importance of fat for blood sugars, you can quit feeling guilty pouring melted butter over your vegetables and putting heavy cream in your coffee, because that plays such a critical role in blood sugar issues. It’s natural and easy to consume fewer carbohydrates when you eat fat, because fat has that wonderful satiety factor.

Can you please provide the link to the post about the “ten signs that arena€™t nutrition-base” you had mentioned? If you want to be the hottest chick on the beach and to show off your killer body, then start from today by eating these healthy foods will help you shrink your belly fat and get your flat stomach. Fish is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and its regular consumption boost metabolism, which means weight is quickly disappearing. Soy will help clear the body of toxins, but will keep you fuller for longer because of the high amount of protein it contains. It is ideal before each lunch or a meal to eat a bowl of lettuce, because it is the best vegetables that will help to flatten the stomach.
Yesterday I was completely wiped out from kayaking the day before, so there was NO cooking – well, unless you count whipping up a few eggs. Below are the four EASY low carb meals I had, along with my MyFitnessPal diary so you can see how I logged them. Later in the afternoon when I got hungry again, I just whipped up 3 eggs scrambled with colby jack cheese in real butter. Usually after a strenuous workout like the kayaking I’ll see a temporary (slight) gain on the scales.
Thanks for the tip I will look for the low carb granola at Kroger and use the carb master yogurt. When I’m craving an evening treat I will take half a container, add nuts and Reddiwip.
For those that do not like cottage cheese or cannot find the low carb yogurt i found that i like the plain unsweetened Greek Yogurt. I love the Fage Greek yogurt and I do put a packet of Truvia sweetener in it Gina, it makes it so good! In MyFitnessPal if you switch over to Nutrients in your app, you have the option at the top right to switch to the graph instead of the list.

This week Les Petits Chefs  once again got to see the marriage of science and cooking thanks to the generosity of Chef John Placko of the Modern Culinary Academy. John had planned sous-vide caramelized banana with coconut gel and coconut snow for the boys and I knew they would love this.
Under Chef Placko’s guidance, Les Petits Chefs make molecular cooking so intriguing and fun.
Welcome to the EGGhead Forum - a great place to visit and packed with tips and EGGspert advice!
From what I have seen on the forum trying to maintain 225 without a controller is difficult, I do my butts at 250 and do not have to adjust again. I did a number of 225 degree cooks and had no issue maintaining a stable until the last one, where I woke to a cold Egg.
The Cen-Tex Smoker said:Even slight temp adjustments can have affects 30-45 minutes down the road. The steps you need to stabilize your blood sugar and increase your fat-burning hormones (by following a Fat Fueled, keto eating style).
She is a Registered Dietitian as well as a lead health coach and founder of Healthy Simple Life, a team of dietitians and personal trainers who provide real food and evidence-based nutrition and fitness coaching online, over the phone and at corporate or community classes. She’s also the co-host of the weekly podcast, Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore, Dietitian Cassie and friends, and the featured dietitian for the TV program, Twin Cities Live. Low fat is healthy and we need to count calories for weight loss and eat Cheerios and oatmeal and margarine for heart disease and make sure people who have Type 2 Diabetes get enough carbohydrates, which just boggles my mind. When I started to apply that to my own life, ditching the grains and ditching the artificial sweeteners and overcoming my fear of fat and really embracing it and taking high-quality supplements, something I wasn’t taught about in school. It never made sense to me to be eating all these processed high-carbohydrate, high-sugar foods, which are pushed on us from every angle today, and it made so much more sense to me to eat real food. Is that the same as blood sugar?” Just starting there to give people a base understanding. Basically, any carbohydrate that you eat, this is the normal blood sugar response or blood glucose response. That’s one of the reasons why blood sugar stabilization is so important, not just for preventing weight gain and promoting weight loss but even just for energy levels. Fat actually slows the absorption and the assimilation of carbohydrates into our bloodstream, and that makes them last longer instead of those spikes and drops. If you go backwards, okay, well, what caused the need for the insulin in the first place; right?
Even with our clients when they come to us just for weight loss and we set them up with a certain way of eating, our PFC-balanced eating regimen and we try to focus on whatever their issues are, hormones, thyroid.
If you have a really bad sleep or you’re waking and tossing and turning, would that affect your blood sugar? I don’t really know what the mechanism could be, but I do know that sleep disturbances can definitely influence blood sugar levels. Cortisol is definitely a pretty big hormonal player in this game of blood sugar stabilization, and it can definitely increase your blood sugar level. Sometimes people walk away and they just stop eating carbs, and that can be a big shock to your body, which is probably what could cause that increase in cortisol levels, because your body is so stressed, and that cortisol is your stress hormone.
I’m sure you, like me, Leanne, are just putting out information on your YouTube channel, on your blog. That individualization is so important, because what works for Jack might not work for Jill. Low-carbohydrate, keto diets over time have been shown to cause temporary insulin resistance, which can start to raise blood sugars over time if you aren’t careful. I think instead of all staying low carb and doing that same exercise routine every day, that same 20 minutes of walking or whatever it is, just as another example, I would recommend some cycling, maybe once a week or so, just add in some extra carbohydrates, just more than you normally would. Insulin resistance, that’s what Type 2 Diabetes is, so if someone is insulin resistant it does seem kind of backward to be adding in more carbohydrates to get them out of that.
For someone who’s already eating high fat, they might be doing a quarter cup at a couple of their meals or snacks a day and just be fine with that. I have my top ten tips for overcoming sugar cravings and just some different things I put together as resources.
I love how you said in my bio I’m not all about counting calories or grams or points or morsels or anything. I know when I started eating fat, I could go five, six hours without having to snack and just feel that, like you said, that major low, where it wasn’t even that I was hungry. Just another thing that comes to mind that’s great about fat is it promotes nutrient absorption. We’re talking about avocado, butter, coconut oil, olive oil, nuts, seeds, cheese if you can tolerate it, coconut milk, olives. Buy ready soy sauce or soy beans then obtain that you can add a soup or freshly squeezed juices. These delicious fruits will not only keep you satiated throughout the day, but if you eat every morning on a your stomach becomes flat for a short time.
Quinoa grains are used as a substitute for rice and they are rich in protein and fiber, and you can use it as a supplement with fish, chicken or salad.
It seems to take awhile for my weight to stabilize after a loss, but it feels like I’m finally at that point.
That is definitely something he will notice – your happiness, more self confidence, etc. LOL, it worked perfectly with the milk, I though it might desolve or something but it held together nicely and I thoroughly enjoyed having another option for my morning cereal!
I have myfitnesspal on my iPhone but I haven’t found how to even set it to count carbs.
Yes, that guy – who has dined at El Bulli in Spain and Noma in Denmark (read his impressive bio here)!  Once again, he wowed the boys (and me!) with his magic machines and ingredients. Your completely right – if you have no preconcieved ideas of how difficult something is, you just get on with it!

And Ia€™m not the only one thata€™s experienced massive changes to blood sugar shortly after shifting to a Fat Fueled, keto life. We were completing each othersa€™ sentences during our interview, which told me that we were completely, without a doubt, on the same page about all the things.

They help people find freedom from diets and chronic health conditions through the power of real food so that they can live their life to the fullest. Every day we see the healing power of real food and watch our clients take these small steps that just provide huge changes in their life.
That’s what helps to stabilize your blood sugar levels and give you those nice rolling hills versus those extreme highs and lows. Then your cells become desensitized and stop responding to insulin, so you want it to be insulin-sensitive. Your pancreas just thinks it needs to make more insulin, which just makes your cells more resistant, and that’s a really vicious cycle to get into. It was those carbohydrates or that sugar, so why don’t we just eat less carbohydrates and sugar and what do we eat instead? Have you seen this, when people start eating this way for, I would say probably four to six months, high-fat, low-carbohydrate, keto, in the morning their blood glucose levels are pretty high, and then as soon as they start eating, it gets lower and lower and lower throughout the day. That’s why, which causes your pancreas to release that insulin, that fat-storing hormone, to bring that excess sugar to your cells to be stored as fat.
Is that usually because your body needs a certain amount of carbohydrates in order to function? Inflammation and thyroid, gut health, food sensitivities, hormones, sleep and stress and Vitamin D. I think it goes back to what we were talking about earlier about your body just trying to adapt any time there’s a big change. It sounds like if one has insulin resistance and they’ve been doing high-fat, low-carbohydrate, keto for a while, check out your carbohydrates. We have so many clients with Type 2 Diabetes who actually just come to us for weight loss, because that’s also something that goes hand in hand with insulin resistance like we talked about. In covering up those blood sugar imbalances with medication, which is really a backwards approach. That’s the basis of this is it slows that glycemic response, because it acts as a buffer for carbohydrates like we talked about.
Even thinking about how fat keeps us full, like you and I were talking about how it holds us over and prevents us from hitting that wall. Especially with people with insulin resistance or Type 2 Diabetes, they can benefit from specific nutrients for blood sugar support. After scrolling down a bit more (in hopes to have found some free goodies hehe JK ;)) I am now at ease!! Plus, I loved seeing the boys walking out to be dismissed with their magic ingredients and food – they were so excited and proud!
I really want to learn how to do it manually rather than getting a stoker - although they ARE pretty tempting! They want you to talk about blood sugar and low carbohydrate living and how that relates to high fat and what our insulin is doing.
Any carbohydrate that you eat, regardless of the source, whether it’s bread or pasta or rice. Sleep disturbances, difficulty in focusing, things like that, which really aren’t fun to live with for anyone.
Like you said, everything could affect it, but if you’re constantly stressed out, thinking of the adrenals and the function between blood sugar, could that affect a person’s stress level, or rather could their stress level affect their blood sugar? This is exactly why I recommend that people meet with a dietitian, coach or some other health coach, someone that they trust, because it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution.
One thing that we do see is that temporary insulin resistance when your blood sugars start to rise, because what essentially happens is your liver just starts producing more sugar.
I created a video specifically about this, when the signs are there to maybe perhaps includes some carbohydrates. We can improve it through real food, and it is possible to get off the medications once you get that under control by choosing foods to put in your body that help to support blood sugar stabilization. The fact that these organizations are still recommending a low-fat diet, it doesn’t make any sense at all.
That’s why I mention that supplementation is really critical for people who are actually trying to get off their medications. The boys were fascinated with the texture of the maltodextrin – it weighs nothing but then when you mix it up with the coocnut oil, it really did turn into fluffy, snowy flakes! I found it difficult to focus, yet I was eating a diet rich in whole grains and soy milk and low-end fat and no red meat and really low in calories. Insulin is known as that fat-storing hormone, and glucagon is known as that fat-burning hormone.
A lot of our general recommendations will work for a ton of people, but when it comes down to it, there’s so many things.
You can actually make glucose from pyruvate, lactate … These are all the different parts of the cycle.
Sometimes it is also pretty much necessary to increase supplementation as well with high-quality supplements, especially if your goal is to get off medication. That’s why when you have a high-carbohydrate diet and your pancreas is running on a treadmill to product insulin to take that sugar out of your bloodstream, it gets stored, and what’s it stored as? Your stomach churns in anticipation of the unknown and there’s those ups and downs, but most roller coaster rides last two to three minutes, so imagine riding a roller coaster all day long. Hang it on your refrigerator just so you know which carbs are starchy and which ones aren’t, because that can get kind of confusing. It’s really just a high-carbohydrate diet, very low in fat, maybe moderate in protein.
Plenty of leftovers!Question: When you do a long smoke and get your temperature stabilized, do you have to continually adjust it every hour or so?
I had to constantly adjust my vents - the temperature would get above 250 so I would close it down JUST SLIGHTLY and it would stabilize around 225 and then about an hour later, it would dip to the low 200s.
