Not sure this is what you mean by sauce but when I cook steak and have broths from braises in the frige, that works nicely to degalaze the pan. Just needs attention as the quick boiling might screw it over if you don't watch. This can make a... (more)

If a person is in ketosis but consumes significantly more calories than they need, is it possible for them to put on fat with very little insulin to tell their body to store the fat?

borofergie 0 · November 05, 2012 at 8:25 PM

Yes - if you eat more calories than you burn, then you'll put on weight. You can easily put on weight in ketosis by over-indulging in fat. I've put on a few pounds by drinking too much cream, while my ketostix were still deep purple.

Elemental iodine and triiodide (Lugols) are toxic. Iodide is going to be safer. Better yet, just stick to real food sources. Try some sea vegetables.

Yes, fat does slow the absorption of protein, and whey powders absorb very quickly. (So quickly, in fact, that they, like fast-absorbing sugars, can impact your insulin response more than some people would like.) If you consume dairy, one... (more)
