New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Resolve Stomach Troubles on Keto (Ketogenic Diet)?
hey guys today we’re gonna talk about digestive problems on keto I’m talking about bloating gas feeling nauseous what do you do about it well let’s start with number one sugar alcohols when you’re doing keto you’re not doing sugar anymore so there’s a sugar substitute which don’t spike insulin well some do more than others but generally speaking they’re low on the glycemic index I’m talking about a wreath rotol okay which can create diarrhea xylitol which can also disrupt your stomach if you’re taking too much then you have mannitol multi tall and the list goes on and on so so this is something you definitely need to watch out for because I always ask people when did you start having the digestive problem what did you eat exactly before that and it’s usually this right here so either cut back and only have a small amount or cut it out completely okay number two fiber now I always recommend a large quantity of vegetables when you’re doing keto like 7 to 10 cups for some people that’s way too much number one it’s a big change and they’re not used to it they don’t have the microbes to handle all that fiber so in that case you might want to ease into it have a smaller amount and then gradually increase it and also there could be a problem with certain types of vegetables that they’re not used to like some people can’t do kale some people can’t do broccoli personally I can’t do broccoli but I can do kale I can do cabbage but those fibers are a little more difficult to digest if you do them in large quantities in that case I recommend doing a fermented vegetables I can fermented cabbage or pickles things like that that can actually help you but then you also have corn fiber in certain keto friendly bars or different powdered mix a lot of people have a sensitivity with this and realize that the corn could be GMO so that could be a problem and this word is not insulin it’s a mule in and it’s an other things but you’ll see this in the ingredients and a lot of products especially like even put it in chocolate different powdered mixes and brownies that are keto friendly but this can create a lot of digestive issues so just be aware of that I think the bottom line is when you’re doing keto and you have digestive problems you might want to just do the foods and not do the extra different products that come along with people doing the ketogenic diet I mean because everyone’s jumping on the bandwagon right now and producing all these different products with all these different ingredients and they’re focused on low carb but they have gums that people can’t digest like gargle different types of fibers are not used to indefinitely sugar alcohols but there are other ingredients in keto friendly foods that are not really keto friendly for example dextrose avoid that that’s a synthetic sugar multo dextran that is not keto friendly in fact on the glycemic index it’s like way above a hundred it’s like the worst sugar you can possibly consume and it’s in a lot of these keto friendly bars and powders alright now let’s talk about MCT oil okay this is medium chain triglycerides this comes from either palm oil or coconut oil and if you consume too much it can definitely give you a laxative effect and a full-blown diarrhea so be cautious of this I always recommend when you start out with keto don’t add too many things that you’re not used to in one meal this way you can isolate one change at a time and figure out what your body can’t digest or doesn’t agree with one of the biggest mistakes that people make when they do keto is they start adding all these different extra fats excessive amounts of butter and MCT oil and tons of coconut oil when their system is not really used to doing that so they might have a lot of bloating or gas or just because the gallbladder might not be used to releasing that much bile so you want to cut back on that and just consume the food with its fat that it comes with naturally ok and also taking purified bile salts might not be a bad idea and I recommend something called gall bladder formula because it has in there a betaine how to chloride and purified bile salts with other things that can help a person cope with some of these new foods I put a link down below for more information also absolute vinegar it’s a really important thing for digestion as well as blood sugar balance okay number four if you’re not doing in a minute fasting with keto that is a mistake think about this it takes a good amount of time for food to go through the stomach I’m talking like several hours up to five hours before the food even goes through the stomach and some of the food that gets digested from the stomach into the small intestine it comes back up into the stomach again to actually get broken down a little faster too so it takes a while for the food to go from the stomach into the small intestine and then you’ve got three parts of the small intestine you have the first part which is about 15 inches the next part which is about eight feet and the next part is another eight feet to 13 feet and that’s even before you get to the large and colon which is about another five feet so if you’re consuming for example a lot of fiber that you’re not used to it doesn’t get digested in the small intestine it ends up in the large intestine work it’s fermented and if you don’t have the microbes or you have a weakness within the small intestine it can just be a problem especially if you’re eating frequently even though it is keto that frequent eating could be a problem because the food is not fully digested yet but if you do in a minute fasting okay and you’re not eating as frequent you finally give your digestion a chance to breathe a chance to recover and this would be a new concept for a lot of people but it’ll really help you tremendously okay number five too many nuts or too much peanut butter or nut butters or too much almond flour okay first of all almonds in general have a lot of oxalates okay which can irritate your digestive system can create arthritis it could actually even trigger kidney stones it can irritate the gall bladder so just go easy on the nuts especially in the beginning the stash iou’s I’ll have the lowest oxalates so that would be a safe nut but just consume it in small amounts especially if you’re you’re not used to digesting nuts now if nuts are raw it’s even more difficult to digest that not because it has enzyme inhibitors and this is why you’d want to germinate the nuts I have a whole chapter of this in my book will you soak them in water overnight and then dry them out and then consume them they’re much easier to digest or roasted nuts are easier to digest so you just have to be aware of that nuts can really irritate the colon and the gallbladder if you and you’re going to end up with right shoulder pain because there’s a nerve called a phrenic nerve that goes right to the right side through here from the diaphragm so be aware of that next one too much of cheese now I’m from Wisconsin so I do eat cheese but I make sure that the cheese is high quality it’s grass-fed and I don’t do a lot I won’t do more than like maybe two ounces per day but it can be very constipating and very irritating to certain people so beware of the cheese because some people can have bloating if they do too much

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about digestive problems you may experience on a ketogenic diet. These can include bloating, gas, and feeling nauseous.
What causes these issues, and what can you do to resolve stomach troubles on keto? One of the first things I ask people is what they ate before the stomach problems began. I have found that most digestive problems on keto can be traced back to one of the six causes I list in this video.
If you’re experiencing issues like indigestion, constipation, or gas on keto, you may need to cut back on certain foods or ingredients—or completely cut them out.
For example, I recommend consuming a lot of vegetables on the keto diet. But, consuming a large quantity of vegetables may be too much fiber for some people. Eating too many nuts or too much cheese can also cause stomach troubles on keto.
There are a lot of new keto-friendly snacks and foods on the market with ingredients that some people may be sensitive to. Some of these foods may contain GMOs, and many are not actually keto-friendly at all.
It’s crucial, If you’re new to the ketogenic diet and ketosis, that you don’t add too many new foods or ingredients to one meal. Ease into new things so you don’t wind up experiencing digestive problems on keto.
You also need to be sure you’re doing intermittent fasting to give your digestion a chance to breathe and recover.
Cut back on new keto foods to help pinpoint what exactly is irritating your stomach. Try purified bile salts to help cope with new foods. Apple cider vinegar is also incredibly important for digestion and blood sugar balance.
Possible Causes of Stomach Problems:
1. Sugar Alcohols (Erythritol, Xylitol, Mannitol, Maltitol)
2. Fiber (vegetable, corn fiber, inulin)
3. MCT Oil + Extra Fat
4. Not doing intermittent fasting
5. Too many nuts
6. Too much cheese
Good for Digestion:
