Hack Jimmy Moore's Nutritional Ketosis N=1 Experiment

Commented on July 22, 2012
Created July 14, 2012 at 7:34 AM

Low carb paleo authority Jimmy Moore is pioneering a bold new approach to weight loss: nutritional ketosis (as opposed to the more traditional pee-on-a-stick Atkins-style ketosis). Alas, Jimmy has had his well-documented struggles over the past several years - with haters as well as with his weight - but this strategy actually seems to be working. Downside? Relatively expensive testing equipment. And there is, of course, much more to it - but this question will not serve as a primer on what ketosis is/is not. The assumption is being made that you already know or, if you don't, are suffciently motivated to find out. Drs. Stephen Phinney and Jeff Volek, as well as blogger CarbSane, are all excellent resources on this topic.

So what say you, Paleohackers? Is this a gimmick? Or is Jimmy on the cutting edge once again with nutrional ketosis?

Paleo troll may be a troll but Melissa and the mods were born terminally uptight.

Uh...no. Evelyn is one the Jimmy Moore haters, while I am firmly livin' la vida low carb - and lovin' it, baybeeee! She trashes Jimmy; I see him as a seminal influence in the world of nutrition. Can we honestly say there would even BE a Kurt Harris (another hater) without Jimmy? A Robb Wolf? A Mark Sisson? I doubt it. I would go so far as saying there wouldn't even be a PaleoHacks without the Visionary from Spartanburg...

You're trying to make people believe you are Evelyn which is stupid.

CarbSanity is a member for 5 days definitely not Evelyn. Plus would she call Jimmy a paleo authority?

I think you missed my sarcasm... Jimmy is probably losing weight because he's eating less (his wife even had to remind him to eat), not because he's "bio-hacking" his ketosis.

How do you suggest one accurately tracks one's level of ketosis? I got my "expensive blood ketone meter" for free. All it took was a quick Google search. The strips which are expensive compared to Ketostix or glucose strips cost me $2 (thanks to Google again) each. I consider it an acceptable cost.

Moderators: can't you find out if this is really carbsane or not? Whether one enjoys her blog or not, imposters should not be allowed to post here.

@Jamie, this CarbSanity is a troll who generally writes posts and answers for the purpose of stirring up trouble. They also keep making multiple new accounts for this purpose. Sadly paleohacks does not enable IP addresses to be blocked so there is no way of stopping these people.

Didn't he also start intermittent fasting (i.e. restricting his calories) in this same experiment?

But no, it's gotta be the prohibitively expensive blood ketone meter. The only way to lose weight is to meticulously count carb grams and moderate your protein intake (fat calories are magical and don't count) while accurately tracking your level of ketosis.
