Keto Pizza w/ Cauliflower Crust

One of My Favorite Keto Foods

Who doesn’t like pizza! Home made pizza is the best! Especially when it’s guilt free, gluten free and stress free!

Pizza crust:
1 c (post juicer) Cauliflower run though a juicer to remove the water
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1 egg

Make these three into a dough. Put dough on parchment paper. Spread it out about 1/4 inch thick. Keep edges 1/4 inch thick too or they will be darker and more cooked than the rest of the pizza.

Cook at 450 F for about 8-12 minutes until crust is brown. Remove parchment paper.

Add your own toppings and place in oven to cook (450 F) and melt the cheese. About 5-7 minutes.

Caffeine and Ketosis; Fat burning in a cup of Joe (New study confirms)

According to a Canadian study consuming caffeine can accelerate fat burning by acting as a ketogenic agent. The study found that ingesting 2.5 mg of caffeine per kilogram (1.14 mg per pound) of body weight increase ketone bodies by 88%. By ingesting twice the amount, or 5.0 mg/kg (2.27 mg/pound), can increase ketone bodies by 116%.

The Study’s Abstract

Brain glucose uptake declines during aging and is significantly impaired in Alzheimer’s disease. Ketones are the main alternative brain fuel to glucose so they represent a potential approach to compensate for the brain glucose reduction. Caffeine is of interest as a potential ketogenic agent owing to its actions on lipolysis/ lipid oxidation but whether it is ketogenic in humans is unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the acute ketogenic effect of two doses of caffeine in healthy adults (2.5; 5.0 mg/kg) during a 4-hour metabolic study period. Caffeine given at breakfast significantly stimulated ketone production in a dose dependent manner (+88%; +116%) and also raised plasma free fatty acids. Whether caffeine has longterm ketogenic effects or could enhance the ketogenic effect of medium chain triglycerides remains to be determined.

Why is  this important?

The brain is dependent on glucose and can not use free fatty acids (FFA) for fuel like other organs and muscles. Thus, in the absence of glucose, the brain can only use
