Rewatching the video now.

One thing that is interesting to me is the effect of ketosis on hypoglycemia. I am hypoglycemic, and of course I have almost no issues when I'm on plan, but I thought it was because I wasn't eating a lot of carbs and not getting the highs and lows. What that starvation study showed was that even extremely high levels of insulin in the body didn't result in typical hypoglycemic symptoms. Fascinating.

Yes, that was pretty interesting. Ketosis is a pretty amazing thing. I wish there were some home test kit to measure insulin rather than just blood glucose. I would want to use it first thing in the morning when b.g. is elevated due to waking.

I also thought that the question about gout was interesting because the answer stated something that I think is important and gets kind so of missed in the general population of low carbers.

The action of the kidneys takes 4 to 6 wks. to return to 'normal'. He was talking about uric acid but it doesn't really matter what it was because the point is that it takes that amount of time to become adapted.

I think the recommendation for induction should be 4 to 6 wks for that very reason. It seems only getting half way there if people start upping carbs at the end of 2 wks..
