All the excellent science aside, I have found that if I'm keto-adapted and then suddenly introduce a significant carb-dump, I'm sick, sick, sick. It's not just that your liver, muscles, and brain are adapted - so is your gut. The friendly bacteria and the enzymes now coordinate with your sugar-free eating habits. You bomb your gut with a bunch of sugar and you'll get to experience diarrhea, bloating, gas, cramps, and even nausea.

Suppose one gets all the way to the point where the body is primarily relying on fat for its fuel, as you have mentioned. And then, you eat 1 cup of Haagan-Dazs ice cream ( 40g Carbohydrate ) and a couple of peanut butter cookies ( 30g Carbs) , maybe once or twice a week.

Do you drop out of this ketogenic state and have to go weeks on low carbs again or does your body just store the extra glucose as fat, soon to be burned off like all others.

This is a pretty important question to me, I hope you get the drift of what I am trying to ask.

All answers and opinions welcome!

I am the same. It is what I call 'aversion therapy'. People comment that I am 'so disciplined and strong' but truth be known, it has nothing to do with either but rather everything to do with what I know the consequences will be and it is so not worth it. I prefer to feel good and being keto adapted is it.
