What supplements would you recommend for a ketogenic diet?


Anonymous says, “For someone on a keto diet,
80 grams total carbs, 40 g net, greater than 1 ketones,” I assume that’s more than 1 millimolar
beta-hydroxybutyrate, “what supplements would you recommend? Any concerns with carbs being that low?” I don’t know that I would specifically tailor
supplements on the basis of this data. So, someone’s on a keto diet, they have 80
grams total carbs. I mean, where are the carbs coming from? That’s really going to determine whether the
person needs supplements. So, on a keto diet in general, I think—and
protein, too, right? If you’re eating a lot of fat instead of protein,
then you’re going to need supplements of the things found in protein foods. If your carbs are all coming from, I don’t
know, honey, then you’re going to need things that are found in vegetables. You just can’t tailor based on that data. But probably the biggest things would be make
sure you’re getting a gram of protein per pound of body weight if your ketones and goals
can handle that load of protein. That’ll protect you from a lot of nutrient
deficiencies right there. Try to cook your proteins in ways that recapture
the juices. That will help conserve the electrolytes. And you probably want salt and either a lot
of low-volume, low-net carb vegetables, or you’re probably going to need more potassium
in your diet. So, those are the big things that I’d look at.
