The most common questions I get …

1) “Doc, what BLOOD METER do you recommend?”


For years my diabetics told me this system was great. I tried several others before I bought this one. I can’t count the number of times I have tested my blood only to get an ERROR message from the strip. Grrr. I hate that. FORACARE gets my vote because it is accurate and takes only ONE test strip to get the results. YES!!

2) “Doc, which Ketones-In-A-Can (aka exogenous ketones, BHB) do you recommend?”

I don’t recommend these in everyone. I have times this is a great solution for my patients that are very overweight and trying to get used to burning ketones for fuel. All keto supplements should have magnesium in them. This one does.
I own the Dr Boz brand and the Dr Boz supplements.

3) “Doc, what can I have while fasting?”

Salt and water is the best.
The next best is a fasting tea. My favorite Pique Teas (also recommended by Jason Fung, MD):
Black coffee is okay during a fast.
Bone broth is alright.

  1. Soon after menopause, my waist and belly began an expansion that no diet or exercise seemed to be able to slow it down. I tried low carb but it was with low fat. My cholesterol levels are high, now in the 300s, and I have developed other problems including congestive heart failure, COPD, GERD, pre-diabetes and just plain feel miserable most of the time. I have had very bad, even dangerous, reactions to statins so am not on any. On top of this the weight is causing neck, back and knee pain and I am in the process of closing my business as I can not work due to all the medical problems and medical treatments. The Keto diet is my last hope and as long as the weight (belly inches) goes down I don't care about the cholesterol. Eating all the fat recommended is very hard mentally but I almost gag thinking about butter in my coffee or cooking with bacon grease but I will do it. I am getting lab work done for my doctors this week and then I plan on going on the diet 100%, have cut down on carbs and followed your list of beginning things to do. They have me get them every 3 months so it will be interesting to see what changes in 3 months once I start. I have no plans to let them know unless it works. Anyways have just started watching your videos and they are so helpful for the beginning stages. I have not checked but if not it would be great if you did some videos on Keto after menopause and women over 60. Weight loss is very different before and after menopause and while I see all these people in their 20s and 30s talk about 5 lbs or more a week of weight loss I suspected with older women it will be much slower and there may be other differences.

  2. During fasting, how low is too low for glucose and DBR, and how high is too high for ketones? After my first 36-hour fast my numbers were:

    Glucose = 46
    Ketones = 5.7
    DBR = 8

    Are these numbers Ok?

  3. I'll do that when it happens to me. But what if you have the opposite, the runs from day one. Could it be that I'm am taking magnesium for nightly cramps and tremors, knowing that I am normally low in magnesium ( at the age of 84)?

  4. What if I stay under 40 on a pretty regular basis… but not necessarily fasting. Is my body still healing itself?

  5. What about Metformin? I was watching a YouTube by Dom the other day and he casually mentioned Metformin as one thing they studied for lowering the sugar and thus raising the Dr Boz ratio. I have a prescription but don't take it because my glucose is in the 90-110 range without it (keto / diet only). That is still high relative to true non-diabetic normal. I'm thinking I should start taking it religiously to further drive my sugar down for Insulin resistance training purposes.

  6. Doctor Boz, I'm nearly 62 and haven't seen my Doctor for many years. I have only seen my Doctor a few times in my life. However, my health started to decline about 3 years ago with overweight, acid reflux and sleep apnea – a downward spiral. Switched to Keto and fixed myself. In a much better state of health and wellbeing now. My brain is functioning better too and still working in very challenging IT contract positions. If you were my Doc, I would feel more comfortable consulting with you but my strategy is, stick to Keto and Carnivore and whatever health issue comes my way in the future, I will deal with it, one way or another – but not by visiting a Doctor or accepting prescribed drugs. Not many Keto friendly Doctors here in the UK anyway!

  7. so, how many calories are sufficient to sustain the body and lose weight. I am 48 female 177 pounds (medium built) 5, 6" I am having trouble eating "enough" because Keto has me less hungry. I am afraid of losing hair, or other issues if i don't eat enough protein or calories. I don't like the fat….but How much fat is enough? Please help. Martha

  8. Hi! Can you please do a video on how/what to eat after a prolonged fast. I have been doing keto for a year or so and have done a few fasts, but each time I gain the weight lost back 🙁
    I am doing a water fast right now. Please help, thank you.

  9. Psyllium is also very good! Mix it with water or cocnutmilk let it sit for a while it has no effect because it is pure fiber

  10. Love you Dr. Boz, thank you for the fabulous teaching and information. Learning so much ~ Love your spirit! Jennifer your new book arrived last week, so excited with and for you as i look forward to new cooking recipes. New talk idea, Stem Cells Question… can you still make new stem cells after the age of 60? Doing Keto and regular OMAD, 36 hr fasts, up to a 3 day even. My goal I would like to try a 5 day fast for stem cells, but someone said you cannot make new stem cells after age 45. Is this true?

  11. I am a 50 year old male who takes daily metaprolol, clopidogrel and aspirin to guard against afib. I certainly feel that I lose weight so much slower on these medications. I'm also a shift worker, who rarely ever gets more than 6 hours of sleep, and sometimes gets as few as 4 or 5 hours. I'm two weeks into keto again and I have lost 9 lbs, which I am happy about. Do you have any advice for someone like me, who is a shift worker on daily meds, with specific regard to intermittent fasting and when I should eat?

  12. I've been doing keto and IF for about 7 months and am down about 45 pounds. I've found your numbers thing very helpful in coming off of a weight loss plateau. I just wanted to pass that along in case anybody was interested.

  13. How to convert to black coffee: 3 days. Pour a shot glass of black coffee and set aside. Drink your regular coffee with additives. When done, chug the shot of black coffee. WARNING!! Make sure the black coffee has cooled off to not burn mouth, throat, etc (I speak from experience here). Repeat 3 days. On day 4 pour 1/2 mug of black coffee. Drink it. By then, you will have become accustomed to the black coffee taste. It worked for me.

  14. Please consider a more in depth discussion about Insulin Resistance, high blood sugar and high blood pressure. I'm in the Seattle area and have been on a Keto diet with IM fasting for four months. After living as a T2 diabetic for over 5 years, I've lost 55 lbs and feel fantastic but still struggle to keep my BS under 100. My Dr. Boz ratio's are consistently between 30 and 45. I also still struggle with high BP.

  15. Thank you both for your informative videos! I am on the Keto Diet and have been off and on for two years simply because Ive learned I feel SO MUCH better eating this way. I am 56 yrs old post menopausal and I enjoy exercising but I have to be careful not to lose too much weight. My main concerns are anxiety, depression and low energy. I am on cymbalta and have been on an SSRI since ‘96. Jennifer can you and dr Boz please do a video addressing these issues? I just got my dr Boz’s exogenous ketones and electrolytes and I hope this will help. Thank you both again.

  16. Chia seeds, love them. But not good for me.
    I soak overnight to make a drink or pudding.
    And it tightens my stools every time even though soaking overnight. Not good.
    What else you got?????
    Dr. Boz, how many times have you done this test???? Because for me it doesn’t work and does the opposite.

  17. I have been keto for 10 months. I do not have a gallbladder and thus keto gives me constant constipation. I take an Ox Bile supplement with my meals to help digest animal fats. I also take about 750 mg or more of magnesium with my evening meal. These two things keep me "going". A tablespoon of MCT oil will also help.

  18. I’m just starting my Keto lifestyle; literally in the 1st week. Is it normal to feel hungry every couple hours even though I’m really doing well on this new way of eating? I am absolutely a sugar addict and have been living on carbohydrates forever honestly. I feel exhausted all the time and I want that to end That’s my motivation for finally being ready to change by bad habits. Losing weight will be a awesome side affect. I am a happily married, Christian, Momma of five beautiful children. I am 38 years of age, from West Virginia ❤️ and I love your videos. I have ordered your book and I can’t wait to get it!

  19. I don't have Keto constipation. The main reason is because I take a protein shake every morning. In that shake, I add two tablespoon of MCT oil and one tablespoon of organic Chia seeds. This seems to work perfectly for me.

  20. I'm completely impressed that you knew what rocky mountain spotted fever is, right off the top of your head. I was down with that back in 2013 and figured it out on my own after 5 days of the worst headache and fever EVER….. I'd assumed I just had the flu. I went to my doc and TOLD him what was wrong with me, and he'd never heard of it. Luckily my doc is awesome, and he sat down, right in front of me, and googled it… read the cdc's list of symptoms…. took one look at me and said, "well, I'll be damned. Would you mind if I bring my colleagues in to see this?"

  21. What is your opinion Of taking Serrapeptase 120,000 spu once a day !!!!! I am 70 had gastric by-pass in 1979. Have bad arthritis and a lot of joint pain. It really helps.

  22. Dr. Boz, you say to take blood sugars first thing in the morning. I seem to have an active dawn effect and my BS is continually over 100. I'm on day 3 of a fast and my sugars are still over 100. What am I doing wrong?

  23. Love love you ladies and the wealth of information you impart. Please please could you possibly adjust the microphone so it's clearer. I'm having a hard time catching words and understanding…especially Dr. Boz. And I have it at the highest volume. Thank you so much.
