More specifically, you want help with Do Carbs Stop Fat Loss After Eating Them??

what happens to your fat loss right after a high carb meal does it come to a screeching halt does it change your whole dynamic of how your body uses fuel in some ways it does we're going to take a little walkthrough of what happens after we ingest a bunch of carbohydrates after this video check out today's .

Sponsor which is unbun if you are trying to watch your carb intake unbun is amazing okay they are keto friendly bread i'm someone that's been doing keto off and on for about 11 years now so having a keto bread available that's made with psyllium made with flax made with egg whites is pretty darn awesome so they have sliced bread the greatest .

Things that sliced bread if you ask me then they have bagels they have tortillas they have all kinds of cool things and there is a special link down below where you can get a nice little discount because you're watching this video and because they are a sponsor so that link down below in the description you hit that little drop down and it's .

Going to populate and you can click on that and it'll save you a few bucks if you use that code and use that link so unbun you can also find them at whole foods so if you're you know shopping at whole foods you go to the frozen section they're going to be there kind of next to some of the gluten-free breads and things like that but they are a friendly .

Bread so make sure you check them out after this video and a big thank you to them for the continued support remember carbohydrates are not the enemy here okay i consume carbohydrates i periodically cycle in and out of keto i'm not saying they're bad but we do need to understand the physiological shifts that occur and even the metabolic .

Shifts okay the key determinant of if we are going to use carbs as a fuel source is the level of carbs in our body okay our body is going to prefer to use carbs if those carbs are present right if we are eating carbs you can bet your bottom dollar the body is going to want to utilize them okay if you are predominantly eating .

Fats and not a lot of carbohydrates then yes your body might preferentially start leaning into the fats so there are some systems that take place because our bodies really shouldn't be having high levels of glucose and high levels of fats in the bloodstream at the same time it doesn't typically work like that so right when we consume a carbohydrate .

Our pancreatic beta cells produce insulin okay we've all heard of insulin before but what that insulin does is it goes around and opens the cellular gateway it opens the doors of the cell to allow the carbohydrates that we just consumed in pretty cool right yes that's awesome okay and then one of the first things it does is it allows our .

Peripheral tissues our muscles everything throughout the course of the body our tissues to soak up the carbohydrates and it does this by encouraging what's called glute4 translocation so glute4 is like a big net that catches the carbohydrates it usually lives inside of a cell but once insulin comes a knocking that glut4 .

Comes to the surface of the cell casts the big net and starts grabbing the carbohydrates to improve and increase what is called glycogenesis where we take carbohydrates and we store them as glycogen this is a phenomenal thing and it makes it so our blood sugar doesn't go sky high but if we're not insulin sensitive this doesn't happen very well .

But we're talking about a normally you know semi-healthy person here the next thing that happens is the liver level we go through hepatic glycogenesis where the liver takes up carbohydrates and stores them as glycogen again a phenomenal thing now remember when we are just using fuel like our storage fuel our stored form of carbohydrates .

The first part that your body is going to burn through is going to be the liver glycogen do not believe stuff out there that says like you immediately start pulling from your muscle glycogen your body will deplete your liver glycogen before it really has a strong desire to burn through the muscle glycogen the muscle glycogen will replete the liver .

Glycogen meaning the muscle glycogen those carbohydrates they don't go immediately into the cell they go into the tissue or they go into the bloodstream and then they go into the liver and then they so they kind of go through like a staging okay anyhow that's not the point here the next piece that's very important okay .

The carbohydrates will bring lipolysis to a stop okay what does that mean it does mean that when you consume carbohydrates you have a temporary stop in fatty acid oxidation that doesn't mean that you won't lose weight but it does slow down the rate in which you are utilizing fats as a fuel source so does that mean that fat loss comes to .

A screeching halt in some ways kind of when you do consume the carbohydrates it is going to slow that process down okay because what ends up happening is the insulin binds to an insulin receptor on the fat cell okay and here's kind of what happens within that category so like the insulin comes in it binds to the fat cell and yeah it stops the fat .

From being liberated into the bloodstream but there's a deeper process that occurs when the insulin binds to the fat cell it activates something called protein kinase b this protein kinase b then blocks what is called cyclic adenosine monophosphate cyclic adenosine monophosphate is what would allow protein kinase a to allow .

Hormone-sensitive lipase to liberate fatty acids off of the glyceride backbone from a triglyceride that is brain exploding okay essentially what that means is we cannot burn fat outside of hormone-sensitive lipase hormone-sensitive lipase acts upon a fat cell to allow it to be liberated if we are stopping hormone-sensitive lipase we .

Are stopping the liberation of fats so fats no longer get liberated into the bloodstream that does not mean that we're not ever going to lose weight but it does mean that right when insulin is activated the fat liberation does come to a screeching halt additionally we have an increase in lipoprotein lipase or lpl lipoprotein lipase encourages a .

Fat cell to take in more fat okay so what does that mean well that means when you're consuming a bunch of carbohydrates with a bunch of fats you have an insulin spike that is making it so that lipoprotein lipase could take those fatty acids from what you just ate and soak them up more now there's a lot of disbelief behind that some people .

Will say combining fats and carbs isn't that big of a deal and in moderation it really isn't but when you start looking at cakes and pies and things like that that all have a bunch of sugar and a bunch of fat yeah you could probably guess that this could be happening so when you eat a carbohydrate your body is going to do what it can to allocate the .

Carbohydrates properly burn them if necessary slow down fatty acid utilization so it can prioritize the carbs and that could be slowing down your fat loss that does not mean and again i'll say it again that you should avoid carbohydrates if you're doing keto that's a different discussion okay but you do have to remember that .

Consistently munching on carbohydrates throughout the day might be getting in the way of how your body utilizes fat you can still lose weight but you might not be losing the right kind of weight okay so pay attention to that monitor the signs and there you go i'll see you tomorrow

Five Fat Loss Supplements that ACTUALLY Work!

Five Fat Loss Supplements that ACTUALLY Work!

Five Fat Loss Supplements that ACTUALLY Work!

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Five Fat Loss Supplements that ACTUALLY Work!?

there are some supplements that you should just throw in the trash they are worthless especially when it comes down to body composition then there are some supplements that fly under the radar it's like they're not even aggressively making fat loss claims but they're actually some of the ones .

That you may want to consider so what i'm going to address today are five supplements that you should consider that are not worthless for fat loss does this mean you take all of them no this is informational these are ones that you probably could look into and consider taking that aren't going to be a complete and total waste of your time .

And money so let's go ahead and dive in the first one is one that's kind of interesting because it's constantly up for debate and this is carnitine now i want to dive into this one a little bit because carnitine is very very very critical in our bodies okay 98 of the carnitine that is in our bodies is stored in our .

Muscles we endogenously produce carnitine right so carnitine's job is to take fat that has been mobilized that's in the bloodstream and transport it into the mitochondria where it can get burned seems like it's pretty darn important right yeah it is okay the big argument that comes up all the time is .

Well if we naturally produce carnitine do we really need to take it in a supplement form and begs the question once again maybe it's only important if you're deficient in carnitine but i'll get to it in a second being deficient in carnitine may be a lot more common than you think so let's break down a study really quick because .

I like to look at big meta-analysis to justify things this study was published in the journal obesity reviews it took a look at nine randomized control trials okay with over 900 participants so it looked at a lot of data and the cool thing about this meta-analysis is it took a look at a wide range of people obese people lean people people with .

Bipolar diabetic people all kinds of different walks of life and they backed out all the data and looked at this said wow it does look like carnitine supplementation may lead to a pretty solid fat loss in fact on average it was like 1.33 kilograms of fat loss with the carnitine group in all but one study .

So pretty interesting right so then what's the deal here what's the actual mechanism what's happening i think it's important to know okay when a fatty acid is in our bloodstream it needs to get into the mitochondria in order to get burned so first it goes into the cell okay and when it goes into .

The cell it turns into what is called fatty acyl coenzyme a okay and this fatty acyl coenzyme a then combines with carnitine pulmonary transferase one and that makes fatty acyl carnitine as well as coenzyme a okay so this carnitine pulmonary transferase cpt-1 that came in and acted upon the fatty acid then turns it into something that can get into the .

Mitochondria once it's inside the mitochondria then it gets acted upon by what's called carnitine pulmonary transferase ii which turns it back into a usable form of fuel so long story short carnitine comes in breaks down the fat changes it a little bit so that it can get into the mitochondria without carnitine .

The fatty acid cannot get into the mitochondria to get burned it is the rate limiting step so if we are deficient in carnitine it really can aggressively slow down fat loss so then it comes back to the question but if we're not deficient in it we don't have a problem correct but carnitine is created from lysine and .

Created from methionine okay so any deficiency in those those aminos from proteins plant-based proteins whatever can cause this issue also vitamin c iron issues can cause the same problem but one of the most important things to note is if you are exercising at 75 percent of your vo2 max doing that workout for a while can .

Deplete 80 percent of your carnitine stores and it happens faster than you may think so what i'm suggesting here is if you're working out intensely you might want to consider adding carnitine in it might not be a bad thing and it's ruthlessly inexpensive okay the next one is green tea extract now there's a lot of evidence on green tea extract and .

It's actually one that i typically like to play around with too you have the combination of caffeine which we know is a good fat burner and then you have catechins okay so let's take a look at a study first so there's a study that was published in the journal obesity reviews again it took a look at six studies so it's another meta-analysis okay it took .

A look at a mix of caffeine and catechin okay and in this case probably looking at egcg they found there is a 4.7 increase in energy expenditure and a 16 increase in fatty acid utilization okay so an increase in energy that's being expended plus an increase in the majority of fuel that's being used as like fat that's being used as fuel .

I'm pretty sold right then and there but that's just one study let's take a look at how this could potentially be working in the body so egcg the main catechin in green tea may actually enhance thermogenesis within our brown fat so brown fat is the fat that's on our body that dissipates calories as heat it's not like unsightly white fat it's .

Actually metabolically active so if we increase the thermogenesis of it we're increasing the heat of the already hotter brown fat allowing us to burn more calories just as heat instead of having to exercise for them if that makes sense there's also an increase in pgc1a helping mitochondrial biogenesis an increase in ampk ampk is .

The energy sensor within our body and if we increase that ampk it tells the body hey we need to start liberating fats because there's low energy in the body so an increase in ampk means your body starts pulling from its stores better which is exactly what we want in the way of fat loss and then of course the caffeine that's in green tea is going to .

Be good because it's a well a nervous system stimulant that's going to encourage more brown adipose tissue to ultimately be more thermogenic and more active this next one is never really marketed as a fat loss supplement and i am personally a fan of it because it's what i use right i play around with these i am a .

Fan of adding probiotics into the mix now interestingly enough probiotics themselves don't burn fat okay but what could play a role in better energy substrate utilization better glucose utilization better fat utilization are our short chain fatty acids okay when we break down food and fibers a diverse microbiome meaning having good .

Plethora of diverse amounts of mac you know bacteria they break down that plant matter those polysaccharides and that turns into short chain fatty acids okay short chain fatty acids are the byproduct of bacteria feeding on food okay so short chain fatty acids are a signaling device and that's where the evidence gets pretty interesting so .

Short chain fatty acids as a signaling device can improve fatty acid utilization so fatty acid oxidation in the muscle in the liver in the brown adipose tissue but additionally short chain fatty acids have been demonstrated to drive up ampk the same thing i just mentioned drives up that energy sensor so the body becomes a little bit more .

Conditioned to start tapping into stored fuels and then short chain fatty acids when we have an abundance of them can contribute to better glucose utilization by activating hormone pyy and also glucagon-like peptide one so essentially you're not necessarily burning fat better but having a diverse microbiome could play a big role in helping you use .

Fuels better which i think in some ways you could extrapolate that could help you burn some fat if you want to know the probiotic that i personally recommend they're also a sponsor on this channel it is called seed and it is a daily symbiotic so it means it has a prebiotic and a probiotic .

If you look at it it's pretty cool it has a uh like a capsule inside of a capsule sort of a two-stage system so anyway they are big sponsor on this channel they did sponsor this video not saying that they're magically going to burn fat but it's what i utilize and i find the science very interesting when you look at the big picture so there is .

A link down below that can save you 15 percent off if you do want to try it it's pretty awesome it might be worth checking out if you're interested in the gut health and the microbiom plus they're funding a lot of awesome microbiome research which makes them pretty darn cool so that link is down below in the description okay this next .

One is cla conjugated linoleic acid now cla again comes under fire a lot why well because its fat loss potential isn't huge but it's consistent when you look at the research the other issue we face is cla in supplement form is not exactly the most absorbable so although i'm considering it one of my five .

Supplements that's not worthless you are better off getting conjugated linoleic acid from like beef or from cottage cheese or from goat cheese or from higher fat dairy simply because it's going to be a more bioavailable form but here's the cool stuff there was a meta-analysis that was published in the american journal of clinical nutrition .

Took a look at 18 studies at the time of publication these were the only studies that were out there so it looked at all 18 studies that were even available on cla it found that when you took a look at cla supplementation versus control there was a consistent 0.09 kilogram per week weight loss over generally about a 12-week period it .

Doesn't sound like much but it's consistent and it's reliable so when you look at all these 18 studies you see wow generally over the course of 12 weeks you can expect almost a tenth of a kilogram weight loss again nothing to write home about but nice to know that it's fairly consistent now how is this .

Happening what's happening well in terms of the mechanistic actions we have to look in mice so there's a study published in the journal nutrition that took a look at mice and it found that what could be happening with cla is it could be increasing the amount of carnitine pulmonary transferase in the brown adipose tissue if you're not lost .

Yet well you're about to be right no let me make it really simple remember the whole carnitine thing i talked about remember how we need carnitine to get fat into the mitochondria well this essentially is putting more carnitine into the brown adipose tissue so already we are getting more .

Mitochondrial activity and more potential fat burning in the brown adipose tissue okay that's the brown fat that generates heat now this is in mice but since we don't necessarily know the mechanism in humans we could probably elucidate that it has something to do with that but i can't make any serious claims on that anyhow .

Let's move into the next one yohimbine yohimbine is an interesting one because i think it's over marketed and overhyped i don't think that it's a magical fat loss supplement but when you look at the mechanism and how it works it's pretty fascinating but first let's look at some data the european journal of clinical investigation demonstrated that when .

Yohimbine was taken pre-exercise there was almost 2x the amount of fatty acids circulating in the bloodstream post-workout so it liberated twice as much fat it really stimulated lipolysis and the way that it does this is it's an alpha 2 antagonist which means that it binds to what is called the alpha 2 or a2 adrenergic receptor okay when it .

Does that it is basically making it so that more fats are able to get liberated out of a fat cell it binds to this on a fat cell liberating fats is great especially when you're doing it through some wrap around mechanism like blocking a receptor but if you are not exercising with yohimbine it will not do anything you can block .

That alpha-2 adrenergic receptor and what's going to happen is fatty acids are going to be liberated but if you're not actually going out and oxidizing the fats that have been liberated they're just going to circulate right back and lipoprotein lipase is going to put them right back into the adipocyte right back into the fat cell so what that means is .

If you take yohimbine work out if you take yohimbine do cardio as always keep it locked and here my channel i'll see you tomorrow

In this short video, I want to cover the foods that will counter obesogens. Obesogens don’t have to do with calories. They are man-made chemicals in the environment that contribute to obesity.

A few things that can contain obesogens:
• Food containers
• Baby bottles
• Toys
• Plastics and their related chemicals
• Non-stick Teflon cookware
• Cosmetics

These things give off chemicals that mimic estrogen. Estrogen is one of the hormones that make you fat.

Obesogens to look out for:
• BPA (found in plastics)
• Phthalates (found in plastics)
• Atrazine (herbicide)
• PFOA (found in certain non-stick pans like Teflon)
• DES (a banned drug that’s still in the environment)
• SSRIS (anti-depressants)

The liver has the ability to turn these poisons into harmless particles. There are certain things you can do to stimulate this detoxification process.

Natural things that can detoxify estrogen:
1. Cruciferous vegetables
2. Probiotics
3. Sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables

Fructose comes from fruit, right? So, why is fructose bad for you?

0:10 Is fructose bad for you?

1:10 Why fructose is bad for you
2:37 Share your success story!

Why is fructose bad for you? Let’s talk about it. Fructose comes from fruit, and it’s only 19 on the glycemic index, which is low. Glucose is 100 on the glycemic index. But, there is more we need to look at. As a side note, high fructose corn syrup is about 42%-55% fructose, and the rest is glucose.

In nature, fruit is seasonal. But now, especially in the US, the daily consumption of fructose is roughly 85-100g per day. That is a lot of fruit sugar.

There is a huge difference between how fructose is metabolized vs. how glucose is metabolized. When you consume glucose, all of your cells can metabolize it. But, fructose is only metabolized by the liver. Consuming something like 100g of fructose a day puts a huge stress on the liver.

Even though it’s low on the glycemic index, fructose creates a significant amount of triglycerides. In other words, fructose can be converted into fat. This can lead to a dangerous condition called metabolic syndrome.

When you consume fructose, you also generate glucose from the fructose. Consuming fructose can create insulin resistance. The more insulin resistance you have, the more this process occurs where fructose is converted into triglycerides. Not only that, the more metabolic syndrome we have, the more diabetes we have.

Even though fructose seems harmless, it’s very hard on the liver.

The liver becomes fatty due to consuming too many carbs, which turn to fat in the liver and around the organs. Eventually, the fat from the liver will spill over into other organs. All of this comes from a high-carb diet as well as frequent eating. 

In many cases, people don’t associate their belly fat with any other health problems. At least, initially. They may not even see a high blood sugar problem for a few decades. This is because insulin is taking care of the blood sugar levels. But, doctors don’t typically test insulin levels, so they won’t see that your insulin is too high and is leading to a blood sugar problem. 

You probably won’t know you have a fatty liver. You’ll just see that you have a large belly. But, as the years go on, you can develop diabetes. 

The deeper cause of insulin resistance is really a fatty liver. The liver can’t function right, and everything starts backing up. But, a high-carb diet is what’s really behind all of this. 

Other symptoms of high blood sugar and high insulin:
• Frequent urination 
• Fatigue 
• Sleep apnea 
• A weakened immune system 
• Arthritis 
• Cravings 
• Metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, heart disease, fatty liver diabetes type 2) 

All of these things, plus the belly fat, are coming from the same things: a high carb diet, high blood glucose, and high insulin. But, the good news is that the Healthy Keto diet and intermittent fasting may help.

In this video, we’re going to talk about why where your fat is on your body can predict disease.

There is a significant difference in where men and women store fat. Women tend to have more subcutaneous fat, and men tend to have more visceral fat.

– Women –
• Subcutaneous fat
• Fat accumulates in the butt, hips, and thighs
• Less risk due to estrogen until menopause

– Men –
• Visceral fat
• Fat accumulates in the gut
• Higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, inflammation, insulin resistance, fatty liver, and other metabolic diseases

When a woman hits menopause, their estrogen lowers, which allows for more visceral fat to accumulate.

Adipose tissue is glandular. It provides storage for fuel, produces hormones, and has many other functions.

When you have insulin resistance, you can have it in different tissues, including you:
• Liver
• Muscles
• Pancreas
• Heart

Insulin resistance impairs the function of your fat cells, causing them to no longer accept fat. In turn, there’s a spillover effect. The fat then is stored in ectopic tissue—meaning it no longer goes into adipose tissue but instead into and around other organs.

This situation causes further resistance to insulin, creating a vicious cycle.

When you’re in this situation, the only way to address it is to go on a low-carb diet. This will help normalize your insulin levels and push your body into fat-burning mode.

If you try to lose weight without lowering your carbohydrates, you won’t fully resolve insulin resistance. Don’t focus on losing weight—focus on normalizing your insulin. If you can do that, your weight will normalize naturally.
