Keto Woman – Podcast by Daisy Brackenhall - 4d ago

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Annette, comes back to finish what we failed to really get started on last week – an episode of the ever-popular ‘Ask Dr Boz’!

If you haven’t already listened to Annette’s story, check out episodes 46 and 47 where she shares her own story which we have an update to at the beginning of this week’s episode.

Based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Annette Bosworth, MD is an Internal Medicine physician with over 19 years of experience helping patients overcome long-term, chronic conditions through lifestyle adjustment, preventive medicine, and other therapeutic paths. She’s been mentioned in media outlets ranging from CNN, Time, US News & World Report, to Fox News.

In addition to medicine, she loves speaking at town halls, jails, churches and universities. From politics to mission work, she lets her faith lead her to the next chapter of life-always looking for teachable moments. Along with her husband, she savors the adventure of raising three energetic, fast-growing sons through debate, wrestling, music, and theater. She fights for the underdog and encourages patients with chronic health problems to “Fight it ANYWAY YOU CAN. Ketones for Life.”

Glucose/Ketone Ratio

Annette talks a lot about the glucose/ketone ratio (or GKI). Here are a couple of tables to make it easier to see which range you are in. If your BG readings are in mmol/L just divide BG by BK and you will get a single digit number as in the GKI column in the table below – just forgot the ratio bit! So just read the digit on the left – 4, 2, 1, etc.

As an example, my current figures are falling between 1 and 2. The last measurements I took were BG 4.1 and BK 2.6. That results in 1.58 or 28.4 (x 18) in the US ratio equivalent.

The zones are general. Your results may vary. Mine do! If I want to lose weight, I need to drop below 2 (40 on US scale). My headaches are better (less frequent) at this level too.

Keto Woman – Podcast by Daisy Brackenhall - 3w ago

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Glenda, talks about how she reversed her Type 2 Diabetes, came off large doses of insulin, improved her previously high blood pressure and lost a lot of weight. Oh and how she is now fit enough to run away from bears!

Glenda grew up slim until she had her appendix out when she was 13 and then started to gain weight. Her family lived below the poverty line and they ate lots of store-bought bread with margarine and white sugar on it to keep their bellies full. With 11 mouths to feed and little money, food was all you had. They rarely ate meat or veg but did have lots of coleslaw because cabbage was cheap!

Glenda continued to gain weight through nursing training and after marriage, esp after pregnancy. She tried many diets but just kept gaining weight. Her doctors put her on a low calorie program but it wasn’t sustainable – she would lose but then gain more until she reached 253 pounds at only 64 inches tall.

Glenda ended up with high blood pressure and on insulin with her Type 2 Diabetes and considered having bariatric surgery to treat her severe diabetes of 24 years. She found bariatric surgeon while wintering in Arizona and he told her to start a ketogenic diet, get off her insulin and she wouldn’t need surgery.

He was right.

Glenda is now the same weight as when she got married. She is down 115 pounds using keto and then adding Dr Fung’s fasting protocol. Despite doctors telling her that keto is unsustainable, Glenda is now into her 3rd year eating this way. She no longer has cravings and is finally happy living inside her new, smaller body. She has found the support of patient groups online to be invaluable on her journey to health and wellness.

Keto Woman – Podcast by Daisy Brackenhall - 1M ago

Daisy’s latest extraordinary woman, Jennifer, carries on talking about how she reversed her Type 2 Diabetes, came off all her meds and stopped kidney disease in its tracks by switching to Keto. She has also set up a Keto candy company so that she can indulge her sweet tooth in a healthy way and allow others to do the same.

Jennifer is 48. She lives with her 3 cats, 2 dogs, 9 chickens, and 2 life partners about 10 minutes from the University of Georgia, on a beautiful piece of land with a stream, waterfalls, a quiet forest, massive gardens and a hobby orchard they’ve planted with blueberries, figs, pawpaws and pecan trees.  

Jennifer has struggled with obesity her whole life, as has her family.  Since starting keto in late 2015, she has lost 100 lbs and reversed her Type 2 Diabetes, got off all the drugs, her kidneys are back to normal and she is healthier than ever. 

Her two life partners also went keto to support her (they have been a triad for almost 20 years). Her partner Gloria, who is a famous sex therapist, has lost 25 lbs and her partner Will, who is a chef, he lost 180 lbs.  He discovered a passion for keto cooking and specifically keto candy, so last year they started a healthy low-carb candy company called Moons Grove Farms.

Jennifer also helps Karen Ogilvie with the Keto Science Alliance family of Facebook groups. They are big groups and Karen’s doing a great job promoting a science-based, evidence-backed approach to keto that makes a ton of sense.  

Jennifer believes there are healthy ways to enjoy food, without triggering unhealthy eating habits or causing bad physical issues.  She has struggled with food addiction and doesn’t want to go back to that struggle, but she does want to enjoy life (and a wide variety of food) as much as possible without being unhealthy in any way, and share what she has found with others.

Daisy’s latest extraordinary people, Siobhan and Dave, talk about what n=1 experiments they have been up to lately and quitting diet soda addiction.

Siobhan has lost nearly 80 pounds over the course of about 2 1/2 years, using a combination of a ketogenic and carnivorous diet. Along the way she’s also found the diet improved symptoms of depression, and keratosis pilaris as well as resolved her hypertension, eczema, and chronic joint and back pain.

She now works with Dave Feldman full time, studying lipid metabolism and the immune system, along with plenty of n=1 self experimentation.

You can find her at CholesterolCode.com, at her sideblog dentritica, or you can follow her on Twitter @Siobhan_Huggins.

Dave is a senior software engineer and entrepreneur. He began working with programming and system engineering at a very young age and has always enjoyed learning new mechanistic patterns and concepts.

After starting a low carb diet, Dave found his cholesterol numbers increased considerably. He then began reverse engineering the lipid system through self-experimentation and testing, finding it was very dynamic and fluid. He has now demonstrated this multiple times by moving his cholesterol up and down substantially. in a matter of days.
