New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with 10 Reasons Why Your Belly Is Not Shrinking on Keto (Ketogenic Diet)?
hey guys in this video we’re going to talk about the ten reasons why your belly might not be shrinking on a ketogenic plan okay now it would be nice just to give you a simple plan that you can do and it would work 100% of the time but each body is different and there are very specific reasons why you might not be losing your belly okay let’s start with number one not doing it correctly so many people that I talked to I listen to what they’re doing and they’re they haven’t read the book they’re kind of just they saw a video and they’re just trying it halfway and they’re doing it partially they’re not doing it correctly so you want to bring your carbs down to 20 grams per day maybe even less okay if your metabolism is really slow and you’re going through menopause and you’ve done many diets in the past you’re going to probably your carbs down to 10 grams per day that’s just what it’s going to take because we have to counter that slow metabolism a protein have a moderate amount of protein between three and six ounces per day large quantities of vegetables and as far as the fat in the very beginning you’re going to consume more fat to allow yourself to go from one meal to the next but as you start getting into it you have to cut that fat back because what we don’t want is your body to turn the dietary fat in the ketones and not your own body fat into ketones we want to rely on your own body fat so we want to cut that down I have a ton of videos on that I’ll put some links down below so this is number one number two you’re not doing in a minute fasting you’re only doing keto well that’s not going to work because every time you eat you trigger insulin and so by doing in a min fasting you can greatly accelerate the results and decrease insulin big-time so the combination is really essential there are so many therapeutic reasons why you need to do going to fasting but that’s in another video so we want to combine these two you want to start up three meals and then slowly do two meals okay by pushing your breakfast forward to the point where you’re not hungry in the morning and then you want to take your dinner in your lunch and squish them together that would be the ideal scene to the point where you may want to go to one meal it if your metabolism is really slow and or if you have a slow thyroid okay it’s just what you’re gonna have to do at this point number three it is working and you might think it’s not working okay now in the beginning of the program a lot of people lose a lot of weight and then all of a sudden they slow down the weight loss and they think it’s not working there used to like a pound a day and now they go a pound a week and they think it’s not working they get frustrated on a real healthy person the most you can lose is two pounds a week I’m sorry but that’s just the fact on an average person it could be one pound a week it’s still working it’s just gonna take some time so the goal is to get healthy then lose the weight so what I would recommend is focus on the other indicators like energy tolerance for sleep memory focus inflammation focus on those not just the weight loss okay but if you’re losing even a half a pound a week its whoo it’s working but it’s it’s a little slower but we can always speed it up but the point is that don’t give up if you’re only losing a half a pound or a pound a week just tweak things number four if you have a fat liver the capacity to make ketones the the capacity to make growth hormone work is going to be less and the capacity to rid the fats going to be less so you’re gonna have to improve this fatty liver I have a video down below on how to do that you need you need to get some choline that’s a type of B vitamin it strips off out of the liver and it’ll help you the other point about this is that if your stomach is large your body will have to get rid of the fat in the liver before the fat underneath here in your abdomen area so even though your abdomen might not be shrinking your body is still losing fat but it has to get get it out of the organs first before it gets rid of the superficial or the fat that’s right underneath your abdomen so that’s just a point I want to bring up because it’s very very common so the body will go off to the liver first and the organs and then the other fat second number five you’re gaining muscle mass if you’re female and you’re menopausal chances are you have a lot of atrophy that’s loss of muscle it looks just like fat but it’s atrophy one way to know that is if you’re sitting in a chair and you get up and it takes you a lot of work to get up because your quadricep your your thigh muscles are weak you have atrophy so you’re gonna have to gain the muscle back while you’re doing in a minute fasting in keto and in the process muscle by volume weighs more than fat so you might find no loss of midsection yet you’re getting stronger the point I wanna make is that it takes a really healthy diet for a good year or two to get these muscles back with exercise so it’s not going to happen in a week or two so go for the long haul I know it’s frustrating but that’s just the facts of what’s going to happen but you will eventually get it back because atrophy is a is a pretty serious problem it’s not a little thing it’s like your muscles are basically gone okay number six you’re not exercising correctly or you’re not exercising at all exercise is not the big tool to help you lose weight but it can really help increase growth hormone toning and a little bit of weight loss okay so this is important high intensity low duration short little bursts of high-intensity full-body exercise is the best I mean if you can do sprinting that would be the ideal scene but some people they don’t have good knees so they have to get in the bike the spin bike and start doing that for a while elliptical but for a lot of people you have to just start just walking that’s their first first step so do what you can gradually work up to it number seven if you bloat from the vegetables that you’re not used to consuming or too much fat or whatever because you don’t have enough stomach acid or enough bile from the gallbladder that can make your stomach stay big when I was in practice there were people that actually had food allergies that kept them bloating there are people that are doing kale that they were just bloated week after week they didn’t connect the dots that they can’t digest those foods they developed constipation well how you gonna lose weight if you have constipation so we want to have you consume foods that you can digest so regular lettuce green lettuce is probably easier to digest than spinach or other vegetables so modify the type of vegetables that you consume and make sure you have no bloating maybe you need some help with apple cider vinegar pertain how to chloride some gallbladder support all right number eight other health problems so let’s say you have a thyroid issue let’s say you have some other hormonal issue you have hot flashes you have a heart condition these other health problems can inhibit your ability to lose weight because as you get healthy sometimes the body will focus on other problems first before losing the weight so what I like to do is I like to get rid of all the weak links in your body bless so let’s say for example you’re trying to lose weight it’s not working well what is the weakest link in your body is it the thyroid is it the adrenals focus on that then watch what happens to the weight because it’s all about getting healthy then losing the weight all right number nine medications lots of medications from cholesterol medication statins – antidepressant medications have a little side effects of preventing weight loss in fact a lot of the symptoms from these medications are you develop more insulin resistance which increases more insulin well you’re going to have to get with your doctor to find an alternative something natural maybe that you can work with but that’s between you and your doctor because the medication is just going to be a barrier it’s going to keep things really slow and one more point about medications if your blood values are normal and the doctor still has you on medications then find another doctor because you don’t want to take medications if you really don’t need them alright number 10 stress and lack of sleep can severely inhibit your ability to lose your belly so I have tons of videos on techniques that you can do things you can do food you can eat nutrition you can take to reduce stress usually supporting a healthy adrenal gland to enhance the sleep which will then actually greatly help you lose weight I mean there are people that all we did is fix their sleep and they started losing weight not changing their diet not doing anything else and they continue to exercise all we did is tweak the sleep improve it a little bit and all of a sudden that was to the point where they start losing weight so it’s quite amazing all right guys there you have it to find out which ones apply and go ahead and focus on that and thanks for watching hey guys I had a quick question I’m thinking about doing a keto summit in Washington do you see this fall and the reason I want to do in the fall that’s my favorite time of the year where the leaves are falling it’s going to be gorgeous in Washington DC and I wanted to know if you would be interested in coming out so this will have a chance to meet you and cover the entire subject of keto and in a minute fasting so I haven’t formulated all the details yet but I just wanted to find out if you’d be interested I put a link down below let me know

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the 10 reasons why your belly might not be shrinking while doing ketogenic diet plan.
1. Not doing it correctly – Some people are just trying it halfway and doing it partially.
If you have slow metabolism, you probably have to bring your carbs down to 10g/day.
We must counter that slow metabolism.
Carbs: 20 to 50g
Protein: Moderate Amount (Between 3 to 6 ounces / Day)
Large Quantities of Vegetables:
Fat: In the beginning consume more fat to allow yourself to go from one meal to the next. But as you start getting into it, you have to cut that fat back.
2. Not doing Intermittent Fasting – Eating triggers insulin. By doing intermittent fasting, you will greatly accelerate the results and decrease insulin bigtime.
Start doing 3 meals then 2 meals by pushing the breakfast forward to the point where you are not hungry in the morning and then take the lunch and dinner together to the point where you want to go one meal a day.
3. It is working – 1-2lbs / week – It is working but working slowly.
A healthy person can lose is 2lbs a week.
An average person can lose 1lb / week.
The goal is to get healthy then lose the weight. Focus on other indicators like energy, tolerance for sleep, memory, focus and inflammation.
4. Fatty liver – The capacity to make ketone and growth hormones work is going to be less.
Improve this fatty liver ( – You need to get some choline, a type of B vitamins that strips off fatty liver.
The body will have to get rid of the fat in the liver before the fat underneath your abdomen area.
5. Gaining Muscle Mass – If you are female and menopausal, chances are you are getting a lot of atrophy or loss of muscle.
In the process, muscle by value weighs more than fat so you will find no loss of mid-section and yet you are getting stronger.
6. Not exercising correctly – Exercise is not the big tool to help you lose weight but it can really help increase growth hormone, toning and a little bit of weight loss.
“High Intensity, Low Duration” – Short little burst of high intensity full body exercise is the best.
7. Bloating from food – If you bloat from the vegetables that you are not used to consuming, or too much fat, that can make your stomach stay big. Modify the type of vegetables that you consume and make sure that you have no bloating.
8. Other Health Problems – It can inhibit your ability to lose weight because as you get healthy sometimes the body will focus on other problems first before losing the weight.
Get rid of all the weak links of your body and focus on that.
9. Medications – All have side effects of preventing weight loss. In fact, a lot of the symptoms of medication will develop more insulin resistance which increases more insulin.
10. Stress – Sleep – Lack of sleep can severely inhibit your ability to lose your belly.
