Top 11 Genes for Keto Diet Success

Top 11 Genes for Keto Diet Success

Setting Yourself up for Success

Whether you're ready to dive into the ketogenic diet for the first time, or you've tried it in the past and didn't achieve the results you'd hoped, this article is for you! Using your genes for your methylation status, digestion and help you avoid metabolic syndrome, we walk you through Sarah Morgan's work in using your genetics to optimize the keto diet for you. Genetics, through the study of epigenetics, can provide a framework for understanding why we react to our food and environment in a certain way, and why the same diet produces different results in individuals. Why do some people do exceptionally well from the beginning with a ketogenic diet, while others struggle? Well, genetics may play a large part in that. Due to the large increase in the quantity of fats consumed on the ketogenic diet, some people may struggle to be able to break down those fats and turn them into ketones for energy and brain power. It turns out that this is often due to several genes that affect how we process fats in our bodies.  Whether you want to focus on more of a traditional keto diet, a carnivore diet or a ketotarian diet, your success will come down to what your genes need to support them. So, you can see why knowing this information before beginning a dietary shift like this can be beneficial. Just like you don't have to fall victim to the keto flu with proper support, you also don't have to struggle to get into ketosis if you know ahead of time how to navigate what your unique body needs. The following genetic interpretations and information are based on the work of Sarah Morgan, the “Gene Queen.”  (Make sure to check out her podcast episode). So grab your Nutrition Genome, 23 and Me or other genetic SNP report and learn how you can customize the keto diet based on your SNPs. Make sure to sign up to track your data with the Heads Up app (download in the app store for on-the-go tracking), where you can directly sync your blood test results with your food tracker, Keto Mojo, blood sugar, HRV, sleep and more.

Reading a Genetic Report

When interpreting genetic data, you will commonly see plus and minus signs next to the gene.  The more plus signs you see, the more variants of that gene you have. Use the following to interpret them if they are not already labeled as such:
  • -/-  Normal or Wild Type
  • +/- or -/+ Heterozygous
  • +/+ Homozygous
# 1 Gene: PEMT
What it does: Makes choline to support liver functioning. The liver needs to converts fats to ketones, so this is super important with the keto diet for keeping the liver healthy and not bogged down processing the increased fat in the diet. Choline is also supportive of brain health for memory and cognitive ability. Where to find it on your report: Methylation Common symptoms associated with it/indicators for support:
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble with fats
  • Pregnancy
  • Nursing
How to support it: Eat choline-rich foods like egg yolks, Brussels sprouts, liver, and can also be used in a supplement form. What labs to run to monitor its functioning: Liver function tests ALT and AST to monitor liver functioning and the potential need for additional choline in the diet. 
# 2 Gene: FADS2
What it does: Indicates your ability to convert shorter chain omega 3 fatty acids to longer chain fatty acids, like EPA/DHA, which are critical for brain health. If you have one or two copies of this gene, you will need more fats from fish or supplemental support to get enough EPA/DHA for brain health, as you will not be able to convert enough of the shorter chain omega 3’s, (such as from plant sources like chia seeds, flaxseed, hemp hearts, etc.) for your brain's needs. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Metabolic symptoms
  • Neurological symptoms
How to support it: Eat more fish or take a fish oil supplement What labs to run to monitor its functioning: Check EPA/DHA levels to see what your status is based on your diet and ability to convert plant-based fats to DHA and EPA for optimal brain function. 
# 3 Gene: FUT2
What it does: Plays a part in how well you absorb your fats based on the type of bacteria living in your gut microbiome. If you have one or two copies of this gene, then you'll need to bring in more prebiotic rich food for your good gut bugs to feed on. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Craving more veggies on a keto diet or not doing well on a carnivore diet.
  • More inflammation, or increase in inflammatory blood markers in response to a higher fat diet.
How to support it: Eat more fibrous vegetables (prebiotics) to feed the good bacteria in your gut and increase levels of bifidobacteria, which also helps lower inflammation. You’ll need 25 different plant species per week. CAUTION: Extremely restricted diets can be potentially detrimental, so use caution if you don’t have all of the information on how it will affect you before beginning a very restricted diet. Test, don’t guess, then monitor frequently in the beginning. What labs to run to monitor its functioning: Comprehensive GI panel or Viome testing to see microbiome diversity as well as homocysteine, CRP, and Sed Rate to watch for inflammation.
# 4 Gene: ACAT
What it does: Allows your body to convert proteins and fats to ATP (energy). We make our body weight in ATP every single day, so we want to make sure we can get good energy from our fats and proteins when this is our primary source of fuel.   Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Fatigue or hypoglycemia symptoms on a high fat or carnivore diet.
  • Cholesterol goes up eating a high-fat diet.
How to support it: Eat a more vegetable-heavy form of keto and avoid carnivore if you have one copy of this gene, but especially if you have two copies. You are not a good candidate for a carnivore diet. What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Cholesterol labs - Total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, HDL, and LDL particle cholesterol testing if budget allows.
  • Liver Enzymes AST, ALT
  • Hemoglobin A1c, to monitor blood sugar averages
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels
# 5 Gene: ADIPOQ
What it does: Relates to a hormone released in the intestinal tract when we eat foods, which has to do with how much insulin is secreted, affecting blood sugar, type 2 diabetes, etc. Those with this gene are more predisposed to metabolic syndrome. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Insulin resistance
  • Heart disease
  • Increased risk of colon cancer
How to support it:
  • Exercise
  • Intermittent Fasting
  • Omega 3’s to increase adiponectin secretion
  • Turmeric
  • Berries
  • Ginger
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Fasting insulin, to watch for insulin resistance
  • Hemoglobin A1c, to monitor blood sugar averages
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels
  • Daily monitoring of fasting glucose at home with Keto Mojo
  • CRP to monitor for inflammation
# 6 Gene: SLC22A5
What it does: Picks up fats and shuttles them to the mitochondria to be burned as an energy source, which then goes through the digestive tract and is absorbed across the gut barrier. L-carnitine then picks up the fats and shuttles it to the mitochondria. Where to find it on your report: Digestive Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Low energy
How to support it:
  • Getting enough L-Carnitine in your diet or through supplementation if needed
  • Adequate vitamin C intake
  • Making sure you’re methylating well
  • Adequate intake of amino acids
  • Optimizing digestion
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
# 7 Gene: PPAR Alpha
What it does: This plays a role in fatty acid metabolism and can make it difficult to get into ketosis. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Difficulty getting into or staying in ketosis
  • Problems in a cholesterol panel - HDL, LDL, triglycerides
  • Hypoglycemia on a high-fat, low carb diet
How to support it:
  • Exogenous ketones to get into ketosis
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Watch cholesterol levels closely if homozygous and taking exogenous ketones. Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides.
# 8 Gene: ACSL1
What it does: Has to do with how well you metabolize saturated fats from animals like bacon, fat bombs from dairy, etc. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Higher fasting glucose
  • Insulin resistance
How to support it:
  • Focus on getting your fats from plant sources
  • Eat a more Mediterranean style keto diet
  • Coconut oil is okay
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Fasting insulin, to watch for insulin resistance
  • Hemoglobin A1c, to monitor blood sugar averages
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels
# 9 Gene: APOA2
What it does: This runs an enzyme that regulates appetite. People with this gene who eat more fat, tend to be more hungry and consume more calories in a day. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Weight gain with higher fat diet
How to support it:
  • Exercise
  • Don’t have a sedentary desk job
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • CRP to monitor inflammation
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels
  • Liver enzymes, ALT, AST to monitor liver functioning
# 10 Gene: FTO
What it does: Relates to the hunger hormone ghrelin, which regulates hunger. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Especially those who are homozygous (2 copies) may feel hungry all the time
How to support it:
  • Don’t consume a high glycemic diet
  • Pay attention to hunger signals
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Fasting insulin, to watch for insulin resistance
  • Hemoglobin A1c, to monitor blood sugar averages
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels
# 11 Gene: TCF7L2
What it does: Has to do with incretin hormone which relates to insulin sensitivity. Where to find it on your report: Digestion Common symptoms associated with it:
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Weight gain
  • Dysregulated insulin
  • Carb cravings
How to support it:
  • Be careful with your carbs, if homozygous be REALLY careful with your carbs
What labs to run to monitor its functioning:
  • Fasting insulin, to watch for insulin resistance
  • Hemoglobin A1c, to monitor blood sugar averages
  • Fasting glucose, to monitor blood sugar levels

3 Ways to Simplify Your Dieting with a Keto Food Tracker

3 Ways to Simplify Your Dieting with a Keto Food Tracker

If your goal for beginning the keto diet is to lose weight, trying to learn the ins and outs of your new diet can be a struggle. Add in all the numbers and ratios, and it can be a bit overwhelming at first. Fortunately, there’s good news – you can simplify the process to make it more easy, convenient and intuitive with a keto food tracker. 

However with the keto diet, tracking your macronutrients (i.e. carbs, protein, fat) is critical – especially in the beginning – to ensure you stay in ketosis (when your body uses fat as fuel instead of carbs) and ultimately ensure your success.

Consistently Monitor Your Food Intake in a Keto Food Tracker

Let’s face it, if something isn’t easy and quick, we aren’t likely to stick with it. That’s why for keto diet followers, convenience and consistency are key. If you aren’t tracking what you are eating, you are likely to drift off course and fall out of ketosis. 

The best way to combat this is to use a convenient app that allows you to easily enter your food intake whenever and wherever you are. Fortunately, the tech-driven world we live in means there is a variety of free (or close to free) keto food tracker apps to choose from. We recommend apps like MyFitnessPal, Cronometer and MyMacros+ to track your daily food intake and ensure you are adhering to your daily goals.

When you start out, calculate your target protein, fat, carb and calorie goals by using a macronutrient calculator designed for ketogenic diets. (You can find a list of calculators as the bottom of this blog. Note: If using a keto food tracker such as Cronometer, the keto calculator is built-in.) Once you have your target numbers, simply enter them into the app. This will allow you to track your day-to-day progress against those numbers. 

Still not sure how you are going to have time to enter those details as you go? Try entering your meals in advance to help you plan your day and ensure you are not over-consuming in any area of your ratios. This will not only help you stay on course but will simplify the process of trying to remember to enter what you ate during the day. If you need to deviate from the plan, you can easily update it. 

Identify Macros You are Over or Under Consuming with a Macros Tracker

By monitoring the ratio of your fats, proteins and carbs (keto macro ratio), you can ensure you are successfully staying in ketosis. Although this may sound daunting, all of the keto food tracker apps noted above allow you to easily track your keto macronutrient ratios and see where you stand against those ratios. 

Once you see where you are falling short or consuming too much, you can adjust your diet to get the right mix. This takes a bit of work upfront, but it’s an important step in helping you achieve the right balance for ketosis. Once the ratios are entered, you’ll be able to easily see where you stand. It won’t take long for you to reach the point where eating to your target macronutrients is intuitive. Additionally, as you become more advanced with the ketogenic diet, you can adjust your macros based upon your progress to best suit your specific body and health goals. 

Get a Holistic View of Your Keto Journey

The keto food tracking apps give you a good start for tracking your macros, but you will want a more comprehensive view of how your ketogenicdiet is impacting your overall health and success. This allows you to monitor other key areas impacted by the keto diet, such as your blood glucose, blood ketones, blood pressure, weight, measurements, HbA1c, insulin levels, etc. Based on this information, you can adjust your macros and diet to account for the most critical areas of your overall health.  

With Heads Up, you simply enter the food you’ve eaten into your keto food tracker. The trackers mentioned link directly with your Heads Up account, and the calculations for your ketogenic ratio are done for you. You’ll not only know at a glance if you are on track, but you will also be able to compare those levels side-by-side with your ketone and glucose levels, weight loss, measurements, lab numbers and more.

We hope these three tips will help you closely monitor your food intake, keto levels and track your success with ease. If you are interested in making your keto diet journey easier and more meaningful, you can get started with Heads Up for free using the button to the right.  We’ll give you the tools to track all your data and make it simple in the process!

Inward Bound – How to get rid of cravings and addictions for good!

Inward Bound – How to get rid of cravings and addictions for good!

In Episode Three of Inward Bound, Dave Korsunsky speaks with Sopurkha Kaur, CEO of Awareness Generation, who offers simple tips that help us address and dismiss cravings—on the spot. For long term help, she shows Dave the step-by-step instructions for a meditation specifically designed to retrain the brain away from addictions and into lasting transformation.

In just 5-7 minutes a day, the meditation: Breaking Addiction by Rearranging your Subconscious Mind can help you conquer addictions and cravings whether they be to food, drugs, alcohol, shopping, sex or basically anything else that tries to control you.

These tools, while fairly simple to do are highly effective in assisting transformation—when done on a daily basis—consistency is key! Dave committed to doing this meditation for 40 consecutive days and he encourages you to commit and see what changes in your life!

Make sure to sync your data from your Oura ring or other tracking devices to see how things like HRV and sleep change as you get rid of addictions.

Sopurkha Kaur has earned the equivalency of a Master’s Degree from the Kundalini Research Institute. As a Certified Teacher for the past nine years, she has observed remarkable personal transformations in herself and thousands of other people after consistently incorporating techniques established over 5,000 years ago. Kundalini techniques are designed for the ‘modern-day householder,’ or busy people who have a desire to heal and evolve through mind-body practices but also need to focus on jobs and families.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • What a food craving actually is
  • Where food cravings come from in the mind
  • Why breathing and meditation are such highly effective ways to eliminate cravings and that the techniques learned here can be applied to any addiction or craving in your life
  • The food industry uses fMRI to engineer their foods to light up certain areas of your brain when you eat their food, leading you into food addictions and cravings
  • When in the throes of a craving you can immediately engage Breath of Fire (Sopurhka Kaur demonstrated in Episode Two of Inward Bound) to get yourself out of the 'thinking mind' and overcome any craving
  • Kundalini techniques strengthen the nervous system and the glandular system—enabling you to harness the energy of your mind, allowing you to control your emotions and yourself—effectively taking back that control that food manufacturers are hijacking from us though chemical strategies
  • Learn a specific meditation for lasting change: Breaking Addiction by Rearranging Your Subconscious Mind
  • When dormant, the pineal gland makes mental and physical addictions seemingly impossible to kick—meditation activates the pineal gland.
  • This meditation also engages the pituitary gland which supports and balances the entire endocrine/hormone systems. 
  • Gain radiance and vitality to set yourself free from demoting patterns

Inward Bound – Facebook Live with Dave Korsunsky and Sopurkha Kaur – How to Wake Up

Inward Bound - Episode Two - How to Wake Up

In Episode Two of Inward Bound, Dave Korsunsky speaks with Sopurkha Kaur, CEO of Awareness Generation, about how to wake up with several important things to do immediately upon waking up from sleep. She shares quick-hit, actionable techniques that properly prepare the body to start the day, both for better health and to fire up a feeling of empowerment. These are little-known tips to improve your day and your overall health with just a few simple practices. Sopurkha Kaur has earned the equivalency of a Master's Degree from the Kundalini Research Institute. As a Certified Teacher for the past nine years, she has observed remarkable personal transformations in herself and thousands of other people after consistently incorporating techniques established over 5,000 years ago. Kundalini techniques are designed for the 'modern-day householder,' or busy people who have a desire to heal and evolve through mind-body practices but also need to focus on jobs and families. David discusses how we can employ these promoting habits in our daily life and quantify them with the latest digital health technology.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Review key sleep practices from Inward Bound - Episode One
  • Best practices on how to wake up to start the day
  • How to take your vitality back by empowering yourself with the things you can control in life
  • Five things to do as you're waking up —before you even open your eyes
  • Five things to do immediately after you get out of bed
  • Awakening the nervous system in the morning, and slowing it down for sleep in the evening can be measured through a heart rate monitor and your phone HRV
  • Breath of Fire (BOF)—major benefits include:
    • Releases toxins and the deposits of mucus in our lung linings, in our blood vessels and all of our cells
    • Expands lung capacity and increases vitality and vital strength
    • Strengthens the nervous system to be able to resist stress
    • Reduces addictive impulses from drugs, smoking, and bad foods
    • Increases oxygen delivery to the brain, which facilitates a focused and intelligent and neutral state of mind so we can make better decisions throughout the day
    • Boosts the immune system and it may prevent diseases
    • Promotes synchronization of the biorhythms of the body’s systems
    • Repairs and balances both the sympathetic and parasympathetic system
    • Energizes the body while it calms the mind
  • One step you're already doing—using the toilet to eliminate waste—here we remind you to look at your waste, notice the color of the urine and notice what your stool can tell you about your health based on the Bristol Stool Chart
  • Another step you are likely already doing is brushing your teeth—however, there is an additional aspect to that step which is very beneficial and hardly anyone has ever heard about—gaging the monkey glands. Do this by brushing the way back area of the tongue (the monkey glands) and get yourself to gag several times. This releases the pool of toxic bacteria that the glands catch and store throughout the night. Release those toxins BEFORE swallowing any saliva (an unconscious, natural thing we do upon waking) or drinking anything. Added bonus, the eyes will water when you gag, which makes an excellent daily lubricant
  • How (a specific walkthrough with Sopurkha Kaur) to take a proper Cold Shower. Major benefits include:
    • Open up capillaries and circulation
    • Flush the organs with clean purified blood
    • Keep blood chemistry young, virile, and healthy
    • Stimulate healthy secretion of the glandular system
    • Keeps skin radiant
    • PRECAUTIONS - DO NOT DO A COLD SHOWER WHEN:
      • You have a fever
      • When menstruating or pregnant
      • If you have rheumatism, heart disease or circulatory issues (like Raynoid's disease)
      • Go slow with cold showers if you have issues with sciatica or high blood pressure
      • Protect the genitals
  • Cryotherapy is another biohacking option for cold exposure (see Dave Korsunsky and Dr. John Limansky take a cold plunge into Lake Tahoe)
  • The final Good Morning step is to allow quiet time to listen to inner messages, to consciously breath, to intentionally meditate, or simply to set your intentions for the day. Open your brain and body to receive guidance from your soul—your true, unconditional, best friend. This is a key step for success in any area of your life and health. Some of the most successful people in the world will start the day with an extensive (2-3 hours) early morning practice. If it's new to you, simply start with a few minutes and you will still begin to experience positive results in your day. Again, do this daily—consistency is key!
