New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Am I Becoming Insulin Resistant? WTH is Going On!?

What is happening why when i go to bed do i have this crazy high glucose spike it's really concerning it's really weird it is weird if you don't know what you're looking at so i started to investigate it when i look at my continuous glucose monitor when i go to bed i have a pretty high spike in glucose and then it comes back down and .

It kind of stabilizes and then i wake up with moderately high levels of glucose that are associated with being fat adapted that's pretty normal but the spike at bedtime was concerning me like why am i peaking like up over 120 130 points sometimes when i'm laying down then i put it all together and it made sense hey this video is brought to you .

By a company called truecaba trucava is a kava supplement if you ever had cava oil before it is a really cool product okay so it can help you feel really relaxed and really calm so they have actually cava bars and coffee drinks that you would get in countries like fiji or south pacific islands it's pretty fascinating stuff okay the way .

That it works it almost works like a mild sedative in a way except it's interesting because you develop sort of this response with it that makes you feel very calm it doesn't sedate you and impair you you feel like you're almost getting the effects of going out and you know socially drinking but without the actual impairment it's pretty .

Interesting stuff so i put a link down below and if you use that link you can save 15 percent because truckaba is a sponsor on this channel so they extend some savings out to those that watch my channel so that link is down below in the description to try out a little bit of cava oil it is very cool stuff i think you'll like it okay so here's kind .

Of my hypothesis and then i backed it up with some data so i kind of want to do these series every now and then where i talk about my hypotheses and what i experience and then how i back it up with data okay so i'm very active during the day generally speaking i'm not sedentary i like always moving around doing something in fact it's kind of a .

Curse for me like i have to be doing something and when i'm in a ketogenic state that means that i already have a little bit of stable glucose just because my body is predominantly running on fats but that doesn't mean that when i move my body doesn't take up glucose so while i'm moving around throughout the course of the day i am sort of .

Artificially keeping my glucose levels stabilized because my cells are needing that glucose my cells are bringing the glu 4 transporter up to the surface of the cell membrane to be able to grab that glucose because the muscle cells are very sensitive to glucose and since i carry a larger amount of muscle it makes sense but then as soon as my head .

Hits the pillow and i lay down and i stop all of a sudden my glucose levels that were just normalized because they were getting glucose was getting taken up by the muscle cell suddenly spikes up because now my muscles aren't demanding any glucose at all so i get this pretty big spike because i'm fat adapted so my .

Body is not going to just use glucose at will when i'm at rest it wants to use fats because it makes way more sense because i'm fat adapted but when i'm moving around yeah it'll use the occasional bit of glucose so then when i lay down the glucose sort of pools up and i get this big spike and then after a little while i recalibrate .

Repressurizing the glucose levels come back down so this is pretty intriguing and that's at least my hypothesis on it right my glucose tolerance is actually rather low which is a common thing with people that do keto it may seem like your insulin sensitivity is going to improve but if you do keto for a long period of time it's actually the .

Opposite your glucose tolerance goes down so i need sort of an additional demand from exercise or activity in order for my cells to want to use glucose properly okay otherwise like if i was not doing keto my cells would be so efficient at using glucose because that's the primary substrate that it would never really change even when i .

Lay down because the cells are using glucose just as the norm okay now when you look at the data it's pretty interesting because there's a study that was published in the american journal of physiology that took a look at the circadian rhythms of insulin and now it starts to make some sense especially if you're doing keto so at night between .

Like 12 a.m and 6 a.m your insulin levels are at their lowest and between 12 p.m and 6 p.m your insulin levels are peaking at their highest well they're inversely related with melatonin levels when melatonin levels are high insulin levels are low in the middle of the night when insulin levels are high melatonin levels are low in the middle .

Of the day well if you look at this when i go to bed my insulin levels are going to drop right so my insulin levels drop meaning blood glucose that would normally get into the cell via insulin is going to pull up even more and because i am so sensitive to these changes because i do keto that makes perfect sense now the other thing we .

Have to remember is that our muscle cells are not going to require a whole lot of glucose when we're on keto they're used to using free fatty acids for fuel so that means that that whole situation is going to get exacerbated at night right because now our bodies are used to utilizing fats glucose are already pooling up a little bit and then .

The second that we are stopping moving and we're sedentary then the glucose can pile up even more because there's no real beta oxidation demand either everything just kind of pools up until your body regulates so if you start noticing that your blood sugar levels spike at night or if you wear a continuous glucose monitor and you'll .

See that they spike after you go to bed it's nothing to really be alarmed at however it does prompt me to want to make some changes maybe that means that i need to periodically add more carbs into the equation so that my glucose tolerance improves because the goal is to keep consistent insulin levels and consistent glucose levels not to have .

Huge huge spikes that are out of your control the other thing that i have to factor in is glucagon my glucagon levels are probably very high all the time because glucagon is a hormone that triggers the release of stored fat and triggers the release of glycogen in the form of glucose so because i sit in a deficit a lot of the time because i'm .

Either fasting or keto or i'm triggering this ampk response i am allowing this sort of glucagon response to liberate glucose out of muscle glycogen all the time therefore keeping my glucose levels relatively high so it's another thing to consider it doesn't always mean that it's bad if your glucagon levels are high it can mean that your body is .

Burning fat as well and you're in sort of that once again like am pk state in which your body is activating longevity genes like foxo and sir two and one and all this stuff so anyhow that's my hypothesis and i'm sticking to it i'll see you tomorrow

In this video, we’re going to talk about the seven warning signs you’re eating too much sugar.

Insulin resistance is a situation where your insulin receptors begin to resist insulin. As insulin resistance progresses, it turns into pre-diabetes and diabetes.

If you can address insulin resistance early, you can help reduce your risk of pre-diabetes and diabetes. However, doctors rarely test for insulin resistance. This test is known as HOMA-IR.

At least 33% of the population has insulin resistance—most don’t know about it.

What causes insulin resistance? It’s caused by high insulin, which is caused by high carb and sugar consumption.

The AMA recommends no more than 6-9 tsp of added sugar daily. However, most adults consume at least 9 tsp of sugar per day. The average teenager consumes around 18.5 tsp of added sugar each day.

All carbohydrates turn into sugar, with the exception of fiber. With that in mind, when you include sugar from carbs, the average person consumes over half a pound of sugar daily.

It’s important to spot these warning signs you’re eating too much sugar, so you can change your diet and minimize your risk of type 2 diabetes.

These are the seven warning signs you’re eating too much sugar:

1. Frequent urination

2. Excess thirst and dry mouth

3. Hunger between meals

4. Blurred vision

5. Irritability

6. Fatigue—even after sleep

7. Genital itching

Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting are the best things you can do to avoid sugar, curb cravings, and minimize your risk of insulin resistance. Check out my other videos to learn more about keto and IF.

7 Things Your Face Tells You About Your Blood Sugars

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

Pictures of my face before keto and fasting make my old health problems so obvious. Transform your face and your health with the simple knowledge of what to eat.

START HERE:

0:00 Introduction: What your face says about your health
0:43 #1 The shape of your face
2:35 #2 The tissue around the eyes
3:40 #3 The eyes
6:48 #4 The chin
7:38 #5 The texture of the skin
11:14 #6 Dry flaky skin
13:40 #7 Acne
15:45 Get started!

Today I want to cover seven things that your face can tell you about what’s happening internally with your health.

Looking at a person’s face can give you so many clues about what’s going on inside. To show you what I mean, we’re going to take a look at my own face before and after getting on the keto diet and doing intermittent fasting.

7 things your face says about your health:
1. The shape of the face
If someone has a round face, they have too much insulin and consume too many carbs. I was also storing a lot of water because, with every gram of glucose stored as glycogen, three grams of water are stored.

2. The tissue around the eyes
Puffiness under the eyes is a good indication that the kidneys are backed up because of too much fluid retention.

3. The eyes
Bloodshot eyes can indicate a liver problem. This could also be due to a lack of sleep or a deficiency of vitamins B2 and B3. But, usually, it’s a liver problem.

4. Under the chin
Fat under the chin is due to a spill-off of accumulated fat. This doesn’t just affect how you look. It can cause certain issues like sleep apnea.

5. The texture of the skin
Oily skin can mean the person has a zinc deficiency. It could also mean they have high androgens due to high insulin.

6. Dry flaky skin
Dry, flaky skin could be due to a liver issue and/or too much omega-6 fatty acids. Cod liver oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and vitamin D. Because of this, cod liver oil may help with dry, flaky skin and oily skin.

7. Acne
Acne can come from high androgens, which is really too much insulin. Zinc and a change in diet (to Healthy keto) may be beneficial.

3:54 Share your success story!

Let’s talk about the interesting relationship between zinc and your hormones. Zinc is involved in many biochemical pathways, and it’s involved in all of your major hormones.

How zinc affects your hormones:
• Zinc increases testosterone
• Zinc helps inhibit 5-alpha reductase (limiting DHT)
• Zinc helps increase progesterone and estrogen (unless you have estrogen dominance)
• Zinc helps inhibit aromatase (it will help keep you from developing too much estrogen)
• Zinc supports normal growth hormone levels and IGF-1
• Zinc supports the conversion of T4 to T3
• Zinc is needed to make more thyroid hormone
• Zinc helps increase insulin sensitivity, and it helps inhibit insulin resistance

You probably know that a low-carb diet and fasting can help improve insulin resistance—but omega-3 fatty acids can help too! Check this out.

0:24 Fatty acids for insulin resistance
1:48 What foods contain omega-3 fatty acids?
2:46 Share your success story!

Insulin resistance is behind so many health issues, and so many people have insulin resistance. Of course, a low-carb diet and fasting can help improve insulin resistance, but so can omega-3 fatty acids.

DHA and EPA are the two omega-3 fatty acids. These both have the capacity to improve insulin resistance and diabetes type 2.

These omega-3 fatty acids have very powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Anything that can reduce inflammation will also help reduce insulin resistance.

They support immunomodulation, which is the control of the immune system. There is a huge link between inflammation and the immune system. Omega-3 fatty acids also support the mitochondria in the muscles.

One study found a significant lowering of fasting insulin levels and decreased insulin resistance when they tested fish oils for insulin resistance.

Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids (from highest to lowest):
1. Mackerel
2. Salmon
3. Cod liver oil
4. Sardines
5. Caviar
6. Anchovies
7. Tuna
8. Oysters

Do you get sleepy after you eat? Let’s talk about why that is and what to do about it.

It’s important to realize that it’s not normal for you to feel tired after you eat. You’re getting fuel when you eat, so you should feel more energized. The main cause of sleepiness after eating is a high-carb diet, but what if you’re on keto?

If you’re on the keto diet but you’re still tired after you eat, there could be a few different things going on.

Causes of sleepiness after eating while doing keto:
1. Not enough hydrochloric acid in the stomach (this is usually not the big problem)
What you can do:
• Take apple cider vinegar (ACV)
• Take betaine hydrochloride when you eat

2. Your cells are not pulling in nutrients or fuel because of insulin resistance (this is probably not what’s making you tired, but it’s making you feel unsatisfied when you eat)

3. Your insulin is high (this is the real reason)
But you’re on keto, so shouldn’t your insulin be lower? Well, eating also triggers insulin. If you’ve had insulin resistance for a long time, it can take time to correct the high levels of insulin. Even if you don’t eat carbs, eating triggers insulin.
What you can do:
• Do intermittent fasting
• Keep your carbs low
• Consume a moderate amount of protein
• Give it time (it takes 1-3 months to become keto-adapted)
• Get more sleep at night (take vitamin B1 and vitamin D3 before bed)

Insulin and glucagon work together to keep your blood sugar levels in check—find out how!

4:44 Key takeaways
5:06 Share your success story!

In this video, we’re going to talk about insulin’s partner glucagon.

Glucagon sounds like glucose. This is because it’s involved in the regulation of glucose.

Insulin is a hormone that pushes your blood sugar down to help regulate your blood sugar levels.

Glucagon is a hormone that counters insulin by pushing your blood sugar level higher.

Both of these hormones work together to keep your blood sugar level normal and avoid hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Glucagon mobilizes glycogen—which is stored sugar—to glucose in your liver. Essentially, it makes the stored sugar in your liver available for use.

Glucagon also activates gluconeogenesis, which is the process of converting fat and other non-carb nutrients into sugar.

Gluconeogenesis is essential for keeping your blood sugar levels normal when you’re not consuming sugar. This is also why you don’t need sugar while on a Healthy Keto diet.

Glucagon improves lipolysis, which helps your body burn fat by mobilizing fat for use in body tissues and the production of ketones in your liver.

Insulin is triggered by…
• High-carb foods
• Amino acids
• Frequent eating
• MSG

Glucagon is triggered by…
• Low blood sugar
• Keto
• Amino acids
• Exercise

Amino acids can trigger insulin and glucagon—depending on how much protein you consume and how many carbs. You want to keep your protein intake moderate while on Healthy Keto, so you don’t trigger too much insulin.

Let’s talk about insulin resistance and gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis is the new creation of glucose made by your liver. It’s stimulated by a hormone called glucagon, and it’s inhibited by a hormone called insulin. Insulin is triggered by glucose from the diet.

With gluconeogenesis, your body is making new sugar out of non-carbohydrate sources. Your body makes this sugar from protein, fat, and ketones.

This happens because your body does need a certain amount of sugar. However, the sugar your body needs does not need to come from your diet. Your body can make it from other sources.

Insulin resistance is a precursor for prediabetes. You’ll have insulin resistance if you have prediabetes or diabetes. Diabetes and prediabetes are both high sugar situations. A high-carb diet can contribute to the situation, making it worse.

But, when someone starts to cut carbs out of their diet, sometimes their sugar is still too high. How can this happen if they’re not eating any sugar? Well, it must be coming from gluconeogenesis.

The body is making more sugar because the “off switch” (insulin) is not working. You don’t have enough insulin because your insulin resistance is so strong. You have so much resistance that the insulin is not able to get through. Your body senses a deficiency of insulin, and it will make more sugar.

If you’re in this situation, you need to stay on the keto diet and keep doing intermittent fasting—just give it more time. Eventually, the insulin resistance will improve to the point where your liver won’t keep making excess sugar.

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

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.
