Does Kombucha mess with Ketosis?

Does Kombucha mess with Ketosis?

November 4, 2019 8 By William Morgan


Hi just a quick video to update you on how my diets going
We had weigh-in last Monday, and I’ll tell ya about that later, but during last week
I
Decided to try something that even though I knew it had some carbs in it. I thought
I’m real low on my carb count anyway, and so the few that it’s got it’s not gonna bother
Even though it’s got sugar in it not that well, you know it’ll be okay
So what it was is somebody had given us two boxes of kombucha and
I had been hearing about how good the health benefits were of it so I thought I would give it a try
okay, so for three days I
Pardon me. I can’t get the camera straight so for three days
I actually drank
one half serving
Each day just a half a serving
Not the full eight ounces about four ounces
Because my tummy since I’ve been on keto tends to be a little iffy sometimes I think after
40 plus years of
eating crappy food that now that I’m not it tends to
You know just kind of
Not really sure what’s going on anymore?
so
but for the three days
My stomach was happy
well
when was it?
One day this last week I decided that I would try and check my blood sugar and ketones
To see how they were progressing
And I’ve been doing this maybe about once a month just kind of keep an eye on things
Well the last time I checked my blood glucose
resting blood glucose meaning when I woke up I
would test my blood and
it was
About a month ago 99 and
my ketones registered at one point one so okay last week I
Checked my glucose and it registered
122
My glucose hasn’t been that high
since back in October
Yeah, October and
My ketones were back down to 0.4. Which is again back
September October
So the only thing that I had been
Changing in my diet was that kombucha, which I’m probably screwing up the name
Three days half a serving each day, and it raised my blood sugar that much
Okay, okay no more that
Oh
It was Monday morning. Where check it so
Monday go to weigh-in and I gained a pound
Now mind you this whole last few weeks
has been a lot of
salads and vegetables in meats and
No carbs others in that kombucha tea kombucha is the only thing that has changed
So even though it has a lot of healthy benefits
Its messing up my sugar and I
can’t have that that’s one of the reasons that I’m sticking with us is because
keto has brought down my sugar to a normal level and
Yeah, I can’t do that anymore, so I’ll post pictures of
Like you know I mean the blood sugar name ketones
So
Didn’t have any Monday
Didn’t have any carbs at all many not even vegetable wise
Tuesday morning I checked it again, and it had gone back down to 119. I think my ketones are still it
0.4
So I’m gonna have to get that work back down
glucose back down where it was and hopefully Mikey tell him to go back that so you know I
Still felt okay, I didn’t you know couldn’t tell that
all that had changed but
It’s funny just the littlest things not even a full serving
and it changed that much so
Well, we’re going back
I’ve decided now that because I do need some kind of firming fermented foods
Whether it’s in the form of yogurt or
whatever and
But I’ve decided I think what we’re specifically the sauerkraut, I bought me a jar the other day don’t have the
Pretty good serving each day and that has no carbs. I’m good with that
on a personal note
My mom and I have decided that we’re changing our lives
We’re gonna go to more healthier means
Here the last few weeks. We we’ve incorporated a lot more vegetables into our lives and
Then it’s something that I had worried about that I wasn’t getting enough though so I’m definitely getting it now
But what we’re going to do is we’re going to get us some chickens
and we’re gonna do a little garden and
You know you get a little
perma-culture type thing where the chickens help take care of the garden in and
I bought the stuff to do
worm farm to do composting
We’re gonna compost with worms, and that’s gonna go back into the garden and so
Yeah
what we…
After the death of my dad we realized that
This is things that we wanted to do anyway. We just
Didn’t do it so that we’re actually gonna get off our asses and do it
But after my dad passed we realized that
We really did need to do some changes and
The foods that that we’re ingesting in our bodies now
It’s making us sick and it
Killed my dad the cancer just
You know what?
We were not prepared to have that it was I mean he
Who’s there one day and not not there the next?
That
Anyway, but yeah, we’re gonna do some changes and um
Dogs are not gonna like it because they love to chase cats and rabbits
And they’re just but I have a fit with the chickens, but they’re just gonna have to learn to live it
But yeah, yeah, and when we get that going I’ll take some videos and show how things are going in
Yeah, we’ve got lots of plans and the working yeah, the art lots of changes in the plans
Whatever anyway um but
Yeah, I’m still on my diet
And
Still going strong today today was my mom’s would have been my mom and dad’s
40
seventh anniversary
and so me and my sister and my
And my sisters daughters took her out
which would be my nieces… took her out to
Denny’s and
Let me tell you Denny’s you’ve got to try their
spicy chorizo
Skillet at has chorizo and
chicken and cheese and peppers, and whoa is good and
Also had potatoes on it, but I have them to substitute
potatoes for broccoli
But man was that good….. Girl.. Boy? Who ever.
You’ve got to try that okay, so that’s all I had to say and
I’m gonna start ending the videos with something different
Wherever you are whoever you’re with make happy memories
I could be the one to make you
I have passed out that system
