New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Boost Your Energy on Keto (Ketogenic Diet) Doing This…?
in this video we’re going to talk about the reason why you are tired on the ketogenic diet now I’ve done other videos on this and one of the reasons why you might be tired is that you’re not sleeping okay or you’re stressed or you have nutritional deficiencies or you’re in the middle of the adaptation face when you’re adapting from burning sugar fuel and then going into fat feel okay in that transition phase which usually takes between three days four days and maybe up to a week you can have something called keto fatigue okay and that could be why you’re tired in which case you just take B vitamins BAM should handle it or maybe some potassium but I wanted I wanted to create a video that goes beyond that what produces energy in your body is something called them mitochondria okay the mitochondria are little energy factories these are the powerhouses in your cells they generate all the energy they take the food that you eat and turn it into something called ATP which is kind of the energy currency of your body now here’s what’s interesting many many illnesses including cancer diabetes autoimmune diseases all start with a breakdown of the mitochondria okay so that’s the first thing that happens and then a whole bunch of other things happen after that and a lot of times doctors will treat this thing over here but they don’t fix the mitochondria it’s amazing doctors go through massive amounts of schooling training medical school learning biochemistry but there’s not this connection between the body chemistry and the food that you eat or the nutrition that you eat because these mitochondria run on certain vitamins and even minerals so that’s a real missing piece of the puzzle so the mitochondria is under constant assault from metals like iron and copper have other heavy metals smoking pollution chemicals toxins even a lot of exercise will create free radicals that will damage the mitochondria free radicals are things that make the cell membrane unstable okay radiation GMO foods viruses and other microbes high levels of sugar as in diabetes or prediabetes high levels of insulin can all damage the mitochondria stress can damage the mitochondria so all of this collectively could be called oxidative stress because it involves oxygen which is I’m going to do another seminar on that so you have this oxidation this rusting out this damaging effect on the different parts of the mitochondria the cell membrane the genes the DNA etc okay so you have all this so then on the flip side your body has antioxidants okay that kind of neutralize the oxidation so it’s a constant balance of these two things going back and forth your body makes antioxidants and you get them from the food now there are other elements and plants called phytonutrients fight to a meaning plant nutrients or phytochemicals okay that are present in vegetables and a lot of other foods nuts and seeds and they’re considered the super foods right like cruciferous vegetables are real high in phytonutrients and there are other nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids which are on fish oil grass-fed beef dairy that also act as antioxidants certain trace minerals like selenium zinc manganese all act as Co helpers or cofactors to help this process occur you have the B vitamins that also help this process occur now the problem is when you search antioxidants online you’re gonna see a lot of bad stuff like it actually increasing risk for cancer and illnesses and all sorts of things but of course they don’t tell you the quality of that antioxidant if it’s synthetic or natural or if it’s from food or or it’s made artificially but if you actually read the study you’re gonna find that those antioxidants that cause damage are all synthetic they’re not natural okay beta-carotene vitamin E vitamin C and so you wanted to stay away from now so you want to get most of your antiox it’s from food or food concentrates okay like a green powder wheatgrass juice powder or actual just food itself because if you’re doing keto intermittent fasting without the quantity of vegetable and I’m talking about high quality vegetables you’re not going to be able to repair this right here so recently I had a couple of people send in their food log to see what they were eating and find out why they were tired okay really it was just the quality of food I mean one person had some side salad of Caesar salad with some peanut butter a piece of meat and some cheese now the other person was consuming chicken I think it was coconut oil and some spinach but the spinach was creamed spinach it was completely cooked there was no nutrition left so when you heat these vegetables you kill the key enzymes in the phytonutrients in there so you really have to look at the quality so for those people I had them do an experiment okay I wanted them to consume a real high quality plant-based shake for one week and see if it would spike their energy so this is what they did they had kale so I had them buy some kale chop it up keeping the freezer well actually it was the kale it was parsley in beet tops okay with a little bit of berries it was either blackberries raspberries so they made this shake with water they blended it they had one shaking a day okay it was a nice big shake in one week all three people that told me they were exhausted had massive amounts of energy just by adding that one little drink so it’s really really important to put some attention and focus on repairing this mitochondria and enhancing your phytonutrients if you want to start building up your energy because this is what makes your energy you got to take care of it and also I’m not to mention you’re going to prevent and avoid a lot of illnesses down the road as well now keto in general enhances mitochondrial function so keto can actually act as a protective thing but intermittent fasting also will help you I’m going to introduce you to know word called my toffee G ok my toffee G what is my toffee G well it’s basically a toffee G cleaning up the dysfunctional mitochondrion okay if you haven’t heard about a toffee G that’s basically your body is recycling damaged cells and damaged mitochondria so your body has a capacity to take the damaged ones or the damaged parts and recycle them and make new mitochondria okay so when a toff of G or your body goes into that mode and starts cleaning up the damaged mitochondria it’s called my toffee G and guess what triggers my toffee G in a minute fasting you want to work up to about 18 hours of fasting okay minimally then you can have an eating window of six hours and then if you can gradually shrink your eating window to four hours giving your body 20 hours and fasting you can enhance this even more so the combination of keto with all these phytonutrients called healthy ketosis and intimate fasting can greatly improve and fix your mitochondria I’m giving you a ton of energy and the reason I know there’s a problem with this is simply because when you go to a grocery store it’s everything’s lined with the 5-hour energy drinks right what does it mean everyone’s tired or if you look at Starbucks they have a line of cars around there even like all day long people are exhausted it’s because they’re not consuming enough of the phytonutrients okay on that note go ahead and start eating more greens and get some more energy so we’ve been getting a lot of success stories but I don’t have your success story yet so click the link down below and upload you before and after I want to actually hear about your success story I want to see your before-and-afters and every week we do featured success stories so click the link down below and share your success

Kale Shake Recipe:
Dr. Berg talks about how to boost your energy on the ketogenic diet. The mitochondria generate energy in your body. Many illnesses that could start with a breakdown of the mitochondria. Fixing the mitochondria will then fix your energy so you’re not fatigued or tired. When you go through keto fatigue, you may need to take various B vitamins (B5) and potassium but you could also be tired because your mitochondria need support. Antioxidants can protect the oxidation from free radicals from radiation, chemicals, etc. Cruciferous vegetables, omega 3 fatty acids and certain trace minerals all aid in the repair process and are called antioxidants. It could be CoEnzyme Q10, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium magnesium, etc. are examples.
The main point is to get you to start increasing your quality of food, especially vegetables which include these antioxidants from the phytonutrients to improve things. I recommend combining kale, parsley, and beet tops in a shake to increase the health of your mitochondria. Intermittent fasting and keto together can also help boost your mitochondria. Mitophagy is autophagy towards mitochondria, cleaning up the damages ones and causing a recycling effect.
Mitochondria – produces energy in the body. These are little energy factories or the powerhouses of the cells. They take the food that we eat and converts into ATP (or the energy currency of the body).
Many illnesses including diabetes, autoimmune diseases all start with the breakdown of mitochondria. These mitochondria runs on certain vitamins and minerals.
Oxidative Stress: (The mitochondria is in the constant assault from)
• metals (iron and copper)
• Lots of exercises (creates free radicals that will damage. Free Radicals are things that makes the cell membrane unstable)
• GMO foods
• viruses and other microbes
• high levels of sugar
• high levels of insulin
Anti-oxidants – It neutralizes the oxidation. The body makes anti-oxidants and it can also be from the foods or food concentrates.
• Phytonutrients – “Phyto” meaning plants, chemicals. They are present in vegetables and a lot of other foods that are considered superfoods.
• Omega 3
• Trace Minerals – Selenium, Zinc, Manganese
• B Vitamins
It is very important to put some attention and focus on repairing mitochondria and enhancing the phytonutrients if you want to start building up your energy and you will prevent a lot of illnesses involved in the dysfunction of mitochondria.
Healthy Ketogenic diet and Intermittent Fasting, in general, enhance mitochondria function. Mitophagy is basically the autophagy cleaning up the dysfunctional mitochondria. It is the body recycling the damaged cells and damage mitochondria. Intermittent Fasting triggers mitophagy by working up to 18 hours of fasting minimally.
