Why Keto Gives You More Energy

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

It’s possible that keto gives you more energy than other diets, especially high-carb diets. Here’s why. 
 
Timestamps 
0:18 The Krebs cycle 
0:33 ATP
1:43 The body’s fuel 
1:51 Glucose versus ketones as fuel 
2:16 Keto and energy
3:10 Keto fatigue and keto flu

In this video, we’re going to talk about keto and energy. I want to explain why you’re going to experience more energy on the keto diet versus another diet. 

There is something called the Krebs cycle. The Krebs cycle is an entire pathway from start to finish of how food fuel gets turned into and converted into the energy that the body uses called ATP. ATP is the energy currency that the body needs to get the job done. I’m talking about the millions of biochemical reactions that occur in the body. 

The body’s fuel can’t use fats or glucose directly. It has two be converted through the Krebs cycle. 

This all happens inside the matrix, which is inside of the mitochondria. ATP provides the energy to drive the biochemical reactions in the entire body. 

You can use glucose as fuel, ketones as fuel, or even amino acids as fuel.

• 100g of glucose will give 8.7kg of ATP
• 100g of ketones will give 10.5kg of ATP

As you can see, beta-hydroxybutyrate gives more ATP with the same amount of material. This is why when you go on a ketogenic diet, your energy goes up. If you don’t experience more energy on keto, then we need to look deeper into the chemistry that’s going on with the Krebs cycle.

You need certain vitamins and minerals to activate this chemistry. Without sufficient amounts of nutrients, you can’t generate energy. Not having these nutrients could also be why some people experience things like keto fatigue or the keto flu when starting the keto diet.

More specifically, you want help with Not Hungry on Keto, Yet Still Feeling Weak??

so is your appetite going away you’re not hunger anymore and you’re on keto you’re doing in a minute fasting but you feel weak this video is for you one of the best indicators to know that you’re in ketosis is the hunger goes away you lose your appetite but at the same time you should have energy so if you feel weak or tired its most likely related to nutrient deficiencies now relating to weakness it could be three different things you could have muscle weakness which could be a deficiency of vitamin E okay in which case you need to consume maybe some seeds nuts leafy greens or even take vitamin E but make sure if you’re taking vitamin E it’s the whole complex so you want the Dakar oils and the tocotrienols okay together in a complex you don’t want to get synthetic alpha tocopheryl for example also it could be low sodium okay because you need more sea salt when you do keto and in a minute fasting and the low sodium is probably more common than vitamin E so don’t forget to take more salt at least one teaspoon per day you just salt your food and that should do it you can even get sea salt tablets take them as well and that should handle the weakness and the muscle now if you have brain fog most likely there’s an insulin resistance problem and it’s taking a while for your body to adapt to ketosis especially if you’re a diabetic or a pre-diabetic a lot of people have insulin resistance and it really messes up the brain and it takes a while for a person to adapt in which case you can speed up the process by giving the brain ketones there could be a situation in the blood-brain barrier in which you have insulin resistance so what determines how much ketone feeds the brain is how much ketone is in your blood so if you’re having a transition period that’s taking a bit too long you could just take some MCT oil to get pure keytones right up to the brain real fast and handle the brain fog because the machinery is already in place you just need to bump up to ketones and then over time as your body adapts to ketosis because you’re you’re getting rid of this and an insulin resistance you will need less and less of it over time now vitamin D will also help brain fog as well there’s certain parts of the brain that need vitamin D and if you’re deficient it can create brain fog as well as insomnia then we get to just fatigue overall fatigue that is usually going to boil down to a vitamin b1 deficiency or a b5 deficiency now if you’re watching my videos or reading my books you already know nutritional yeast is probably the best source of your B vitamins and you can just take some and that will help you another cause of a Teague would be low potassium you need potassium to generate energy now you could also need magnesium as well because magnesium actually will help increase the ATP in the mitochondria which is energy factory but the electrolytes in general specifically potassium and sometimes magnesium will help energy and this could be because you just don’t take electrolyte so you’re not consuming enough vegetable okay so this is why you might be weak now there’s another situation let’s say you’re not in ketosis okay you’re not doing it correct but you’re trying to do it but you’re not even in ketosis you haven’t used the urine testing strips to see if you’re in ketosis or even the blood test so a loss of appetite by itself could be a symptom of several things so it could be a negative thing especially if you’re not in ketosis it could be a magnesium deficiency b12 deficiency iron deficiency vitamin D deficiency or an infection usually viral in nature so a simple way to differentiate is just to get a test to see if you’re in ketosis and if you’re not maybe you want to check some of these things right here but definitely isolate which problem you have and address it based on these right here thanks for watching hey if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

Are you not hungry on keto, but you’re still feeling weak? Well, this video is for you. 

One of the best indicators to know if you’re in ketosis is the hunger goes away. But at the same time, you should not have low energy or fatigue on keto. If you’re feeling weak while on keto, it’s likely related to nutrient deficiencies. 

How to fix low energy or feeling weak on the ketogenic diet:

Muscle weakness – Deficiency of vitamin E or sodium
Consume: Seeds, nuts, leafy greens, or a vitamin E complex supplement for a vitamin E deficiency. For low sodium, consume at least 1 tsp. of sea salt per day. 

Brain Fog – Insulin resistance 
Consume: MCT oil, and vitamin D

Fatigue – A vitamin B1, vitamin B5, or potassium deficiency 
Consume: Nutritional yeast, potassium, and magnesium (electrolytes, and vegetables).

What if you’re not in ketosis, but you have no appetite? This could be due to a:

• Magnesium deficiency 
• B12 deficiency 
• Iron deficiency
• Vitamin D deficiency
• Infection

A simple test will let you know if you’re in ketosis, and you can base your actions on that.
