Exercise Won’t Help You Lose Weight in Any Significant Degree

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

Find out why exercise won’t help you lose weight in any significant way. I want to cover the significant factors that contribute to weight loss.

Exercise is a trivial factor when it comes to weight loss. Exercise won’t help you lose weight in any significant way. I think exercise is a really good thing. I’m not saying you shouldn’t exercise. There are a lot of great benefits of exercise, but weight loss isn’t one of them.

Three different studies demonstrate heavy people who exercise end up having a slower resting metabolism by 5-15%. Exercise only gives you 15% of your results with weight loss. If you’re overweight and you’re exercising, slowing down your metabolism by 5-15%, things become pretty insignificant.

Many people have a pre or post-workout drink or snack containing some sort of protein, BCAA, or collagen. They tend to think this will help repair the muscles better or build more muscle mass. But, all this will really do is stop their ability to lose weight. The protein increases insulin, and the insulin stops fat-burning.

People who try to exercise without being fat-adapted are typically really hungry, and their appetite increases when they work out. This causes them to eat more food, especially more carbs.

Not to mention, if a person combines a low-calorie diet with exercise, they will destroy their metabolism over time.

It’s important to remember that it’s not “lose weight to get healthy,” it’s “get healthy to lose weight.” You have to create a healthy metabolism, hormones, and body. Diet and exercise are tools to get there. But, in the absence of health, you won’t lose weight.

You need a diet that will help you lower your insulin levels, lower your insulin resistance, and help make your insulin more sensitive. This is where the Healthy Keto diet comes in.

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

Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

Sudden changes in weight have nothing to do with losing or gaining fat. Here’s why!

Timestamps
0:00 Rapid weight gain and loss
1:31 High-carb diets and sodium retention
1:51 How to know if keto is working
3:10 How to bulletproof your immune system

In this video, we’re going to talk about rapid weight gain and weight loss.

Sudden changes in weight have nothing to do with losing or gaining fat. Let’s say you start keto, and the next day you are four pounds lighter—this is due to fluid loss, not fat loss.

As your body stores fat in the form of glycogen, you also store water.

For every one gram of fat, your body stores three grams of water.

High-carb diets cause you to retain even more water because your levels of stored sodium increase.

Those with a lot of fluid retention often see the fluid build up around their feet and ankles.

The best indicator of success on keto is if your cravings are going away—are you less hungry between meals?

If you can’t go without food for a few hours, then you know there’s a lot of room to improve your diet.

The best natural diuretics for getting rid of excess fluids are:
• Ketones
• Dandelion
• Uva Ursi
• Horsetail
• Celery
• Potassium

However, these things won’t work unless your carbohydrates are low. Get on a healthy keto diet and intermittent fasting plan.

Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

Thinking of trying Noom? Here’s my opinion.

Timestamps
0:00 What is Noom?
0:47 Where Noom goes wrong
3:46 Why keto and intermittent fasting work
4:34 Amazing keto and intermittent fasting results

In this video, we’re going to talk about my opinion of Noom. Noom is a weight loss app.

On Noom’s website, they describe themselves as an anti-diet habit and behavior program. No food is off-limits. Noom primarily focuses on calories, which promotes the idea that if you eat fewer calories, you will lose weight.

The goal is to get you to track your calories with the hopes that you will become more aware of what you’re eating and how many calories you’re getting each day.

Eating less junk food and fewer calories will definitely be a factor in weight loss. However, there are a few big problems with Noom. Take a look.

1. The first time, it may work. However, it’ll start to work less and less over time.

2. Low-calorie diets slow your metabolism!

3. Dieting like this is not compatible with a long-term healthy lifestyle.

4. Noom assumes all calories are treated the same by the body (they aren’t!).

5. Aging slows your metabolism further—Noom doesn’t account for this.

6. They allow snacking, which causes insulin resistance and weight gain

The ketogenic diet is a far better way to lose weight. You don’t feel hungry, you don’t have to count your calories, and you burn fat fast. Check out my channel to learn more about keto and intermittent fasting.

Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

You can gain 3 pounds of weight from 1 pound of food. Why? Watch this video to find out.

Timestamps
0:00 How did you gain 3 pounds from only 1 pound of food?
0:15 Glycogen and glucose
0:53 How carbs increase weight gain

In this video, we’re going to talk about how someone could gain three pounds from eating a small meal—or less than one pound of food. What is the physiology behind this?

First, let’s talk about glucose molecules and glycogen. Glycogen is made up of a string of glucose molecules. For every gram of glycogen, you have 3-4 grams of glycogen. That means that “fat” is made up of 1 part glucose and 3-4 parts of water.

So if you consume 1 pound of carbs, you can retain 3-4 pounds of water. This means that the weight you’re gaining is primarily fluid.

If you get rid of the carbs and consume more potassium, the fluid will go away.

Before you go for the high-carb and high-sugar foods, remember that they can cause you to gain 3-4x their weight. Instead, stick to healthy keto foods and do intermittent fasting.

Intermittent Fasting & Weight Training for LOCALIZED Muscle Growth

Intermittent Fasting & Weight Training for LOCALIZED Muscle Growth

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Intermittent Fasting & Weight Training for LOCALIZED Muscle Growth?

today’s video is about training resistance training in a fasted state how it’s effective at localized muscle growth localized muscle preservation but we’re also going to touch on when you should break your fast after resistance training how long you should wait after your resistance training in a fasted state before you eat to get the optimal result so in yesterday’s video we talked about muscle protein breakdown and how it increases during a fast okay simply because your body is breaking down protein but it doesn’t mean that that protein is just vanishing into thin air it’s getting reallocated to other areas so it might be coming from the muscle but then it’s going over to the intestines or going over to your skin to repair proteins there so i likened it to robinhood your body borrows from the area or steals from the muscle that’s a little bit weaker weak cells or weak muscle fibers that aren’t really contributing to life takes them puts them to a place that needs the extra boost and then after you eat your protein after you break your fast and get good quality nutrients in then those muscle proteins are repaired in a much better way so we talked about how people that intermittent fast tend to have good quality muscle at least what i’ve noticed at least from somewhat of an anecdotal state right so today we’re talking about how you should orient your workout a little bit more but more so how lifting weights in a fasted state is beneficial in terms of preserving your muscle during a fast so we’ll break it all down it’s really fun stuff please do hit that red subscribe button if you’re interested in learning all kinds of stuff about fasting intermittent fasting extreme fasting whatever and also turn that little bell notification to all notifications that way you never miss a beat and remember this is for informational purposes only i’m just some guy on the internet and i just lost 100 pounds and i know some biochemistry okay so again i’m just going to recap one other thing when we’re fasting we have an increase in ketones ketones are muscle sparing because they increase the availability of leucine when you’re in a fasted state even if it’s a relatively short fast your body is preferentially using fat it’s not trying to burn muscle so we’re not just like walking around afraid that every move we make is going to break down muscle okay we don’t want to think like that so let’s take a look at a little bit of science one study was published in the journal scientific reports took a look at resistance training and it looked at mtor which is the master anabolic switch and it found that upon resistance training there was a massive just really quick rapid translocation of mtor to the cell membrane what that means is mtor muscle building activation was quickly turned on as mtor came to the cell membrane so it could get phosphorylated that means as soon as you touch a weight you have some potential to be building muscle your body gets into that mode even if you’re in a fasted state what’s really interesting is that mtor remains elevated at that muscular level for 24 hours even if you’re in a fasted state and other areas of your body might be in more of an autophagic situation where they have more autophagy and they’re recycling so muscle can operate somewhat independently at least it seems so we typically think that even after an overnight fast if we’re going to work out in the morning in a fasted state that we should be replenishing our protein right after that workout because again it makes sense all the stuff we’ve seen before has told us that if you work out then you’re breaking down protein you need to repair that immediately well there’s some other science that really doesn’t say that especially in people that fast relatively frequently weight training actually helps you preserve muscle if you do things right we just have to know the timing and when to break the fast too so there’s a study that was published in medicine and science and sports and exercise okay it wanted to investigate overnight fasting so it took a look at two groups both groups fasted overnight and one group was a control group and one group was a resistance training group that did 50 minutes of moderate to intense resistance training not cardio resistance training okay they wanted to look at net protein breakdown well of course there was some net protein breakdown right they broke down protein during their workout but was really interesting is that protein breakdown reached its peak at 195 minutes three and a half hours after the workout but what else is interesting is muscle protein synthesis increased at 195 minutes or three and a half hours after the workout that’s wild in fact muscle protein breakdown increased 17 percent and muscle protein synthesis increased 21 so the synthesis increased more than the breakdown in a fasted state telling us that we had a reallocation of amino acids that were actually preserving the muscle and keeping synthesis there okay so it comes down to making sure that you’re consuming enough protein in your fed state to support that now what’s really interesting about this study is there was not much of an increase in breakdown and not much of an increase in synthesis at 60 minutes post-workout what the heck so what that implies is that during the workout the body was utilizing amino acids as some source of fuel along with the fats right but then later on after the dust had settled from the workout then the demand actually started so point is is you can get more out of your fast if you work out because it’s going to preserve the muscle and then allow yourself to have three or three and a half hours before you actually eat because that is when your muscle protein breakdown and muscle protein synthesis are at its height remember the breakdown is critical the muscle protein breakdown is what triggers the muscle protein synthesis okay so again if you’re looking for something to break a fast with this is where i would usually recommend really lean kind of meat so i put a link down below for butcher box i talk about them in all my videos they’re a big supporter of this channel so you can get your meat delivered right to your doorstep super convenient very very easy much easier than going to the grocery store in my opinion grass-fed grass-finished lean beef they’ve got salmon they’ve got everything you could imagine they’ve got chicken they’ve got turkey it’s really awesome stuff so please do check them out down below in the description there’s a special link if you want to utilize them perfect fast breaking strategy when you’re working out you are going to start utilizing a little bit of protein for fuel okay it goes through gluconeogenesis that’s not something to be afraid of okay your body is again going to take the weaker parts of protein always first okay but you’re essentially you might not officially be in ketosis if it’s a shorter fast but you are predominantly using fats as your fuel source at this point okay so whether it’s resistance training or whether it’s cardio your body is still going to use a lot of fats because that’s the mechanism that you are in at that point in time so again we have to come back to what i talked about a little bit yesterday which is why would your body want to burn something that yields so much less calories like protein when it has fat and ketones readily available that’s our body’s natural protective mechanism so what we’re trying to accomplish here is letting the body go through its autophagy and cleansing and that whole process while simultaneously in a parallel world keeping tension on the muscle and resistance training with minimal cardio so that we can get that overall mtor effect now not to say cardio during a fast is bad we can go down that rabbit hole for sure but i’m just saying if your goal is muscle preservation touching some weights for 30 to 40 minutes is going to be very very very effective another thing i don’t want to go too far in a tangent but i want to give you some little tidbits start looking into what is called blood flow restriction training bfr training it allows you to get much more of a lactic acid effect at lactate effect which could allow more mtor signaling and a localized area so bfr is where you put those cuffs around and you train in a very localized way if you’re again you’re looking at muscle preservation but you still want the benefits of fasting it’s something to consider i’m going to end you with this one thought that you want to remember okay fasting is going to turn down mtor globally your whole body but that doesn’t mean that you cannot activate it at the muscular level as long as there’s tension so as always keep it locked and here on my channel i’ll see you tomorrow
