New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Can the Ketogenic Diet Cause a Fatty Liver Without Enough Vegetables??
so today we’re going to discuss and answer the question can a ketogenic diet cause a fatty liver if you’re not consuming enough vegetables okay I’ve done a video on this in the past but I didn’t really explain where I got this data from so I’m gonna show you right now it’s the same cold Guyton’s physiology okay it says effect of insulin lack on causing a fatty liver so they’re talking about when you have in CELAC or not enough insulin or low insulin in relationship to it causing a fatty liver okay now that’s weird because Here I am reading this and seeing people improve their fatty livers with the ketogenic diet but then I see Gaytan talking about it can cause a fatty liver this is weird so I could just ignore it or just try to understand what he’s talking about he has a lot of great data in this book and some of his other books and so I just didn’t want to dismiss it I wanted to kind of dig further to see if there’s actually any connection because it’s conflicting okay so it says this strange isn’t me seem though insulin lack causes dissolution of the fat stores which is talking about dissolving of the fat stores in adipose tissue it causes a great increase in the amount of storage triglycerides in the liver leading to a very fatty liver the reason is the following the excess of free fatty acids in the blood causes rapid diffusion of fatty acids into the liver cells so when you do research you not only need to type in ketosis or the ketogenic diet with fatty liver but ketogenic diet with this term liver stenosis which basically means fatty liver and you’re gonna find some interesting studies that pull up you’re gonna see a combination of animal studies and Studies on children with epilepsy okay now when you actually read the animal studies you’re gonna see a link between the ketogenic diet and developing a fatty liver but again with the animal studies you have to question what diet they put them on I’ve done other videos on a high-fat diet which really with the animal child that they fed them a high-fat diet is really a high fat plus the high sugar diet but they also have a ketogenic diet for four mice okay and I want to show you what they are giving these mice ingredients lard butter corn oil make mental note of that casein cellulose mineral mix Vitamix and dextrose which is synthetic sugar and the vitamins are synthetic by the way so I’m gonna put a link down below of some interesting data on genetically modified oils specifically corn oil and soy oil and this is what they found soy oil and corn oil can induce a fatty liver even more than fructose okay so I really think it’s the corn oil in this mice Chow that’s creating the fatty liver not the ketogenic diet because the diet that you’re on and the diet that I recommend is not this version okay and also the casein is probably it’s a type a1 which is inflammatory it’s probably not an a2 and corn oil is really omega-6 and it’s going to create inflammatory conditions to not just the fatty liver so which can lead to all sorts of other problems so you can pretty much just ignore the animal studies about let’s switch gears to the children’s studies okay let’s see what they say here’s one right here is ketogenic diet treatment hepatotoxic for children with epilepsy so this is what they found they found an increase in alt that’s a very specific enzyme in the liver that indicates liver damage and a fatty liver and liver D ptosis which is a fatty liver are the most frequent hepatic side effects of a ketogenic diet now wait a second how can that be so many people get benefit and this study images it can cause if I deliver in five point seven percent of the children doing it and then here’s another study the influence in the ketogenic diet and liver function in children and adolescents with epilepsy okay and this one did significant effects on serum levels of alt that’s that liver enzyme I talked about alright so let’s dig further on what these children were put on ok as far as a diet is it the same diet that you’re on absolutely and not so the foods that they put these kids on which is called the traditional ketogenic diet include you know prepackaged can foods like keto kale which is refined soy oils we talked about that over here corn syrup solids corn starch here’s one called RC F which is Ross carbohydrate formula soy formula with iron genetically modified oils like corn and soil can induce a fatty liver even more than fructose now the other foods that these kids were consuming were things like chicken and probably not organic with mayonnaise again more soy oil usually so they’re kind of doing it what’s called a version of keto which is dirty keto which I don’t recommend okay and that would be like doing Cheez Whiz for example or a diet soda or fast food without the bun they’re still lowering insulin so you’ve seen the benefits of that but they’re not using quality ingredients so if you allow certain things to slip in the diet like these genetically modified soy oils or dextrose or multi dextran that could potentially be the reason why guy Tina talks about it creating a fatty liver now the next topic I want to talk about is vegetables why would you want to increase your vegetables on a ketogenic diet first of all I think it enhances the nutrient profile now can you get all of your nutrients from a carnivore dabbe absolutely if it’s done healthily if you’re doing organ meats if you’re doing cod liver oil high quality fish and seafood but if you’re doing an unhealthy version of the carnivore diet or even the ketogenic diet you’re going to set yourself up for a lot of problems so how do vegetables protect you against the fetid liver number one they have the highest concentration of nitrates now when you think of nitrates you think of like nitrates and bacon right like sodium nitrate or potassium nitrate no we’re not talking about that nitrite that’s a chemical we’re talking about the natural form of nitrates in vegetables that are beneficial to your heart and they also have the to protect against a fatty liver they’ve been known to actually help you decrease blood pressure support cardiovascular function especially the inside the artery I’ll put some links down below that’s just one thing plus the fiber in the vegetables can provide the microbes the food it needs to then give you B jerk acid which can lower insulin because it improves insulin resistance it helps your blood sugars that’s one thing right there also the the microbes help you recycle bile 90% of the bile salts that are made by the liver are recycled through the gut microbes so if you don’t have all the microbes potentially you can have a lower amount of bile in the body and potentially you can have a backup of cholesterol and fat in the liver because bio helps to extract the excess of cholesterol and fat in the liver bile also helps prevent gall stones by the way and then you have phytonutrients ok phytonutrients are the things and vegetables that actually help protect the tissues from damage their antioxidants they can help detoxify chemicals they can help reduce inflammatory conditions in the liver then you have other nutrients as well you have vitamin C vitamin E and then you have the minerals which is magnesium and potassium in the vegetables which can help improve the high insulin state which actually is the primary driver for fatty liver so the question can a ketogenic diet causes a fatty liver if you’re not consuming enough vegetables potentially I think he can if you’re doing an unhealthy version of keto guys thanks for watching I’ll see you next video so I want to thank you for being here and watching my videos if you haven’t already subscribed go ahead and do so so you can

In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question if the ketogenic diet can cause fatty liver if you are not consuming enough vegetables.
Guyton’s Medical Physiology, “Effect of Insulin Lack on Causing a Fatty Liver. Strange as it may seem, though insulin lack causes dissolution of the fat stores in adipose tissue, it causes a great increase in the number of stored triglycerides in the liver, leading to a very fatty liver. The reason is the following: The excess of free fatty acids in the blood causes rapid diffusion of fatty acids into the liver cells. Also, the glycerol released from the adipose cells is transported at the same time into the liver.”
Soy oil and corn oil can induce a fatty liver even more than fructose. If you allow certain things (low-quality foods) slip into your diet like these GMO, dextrose or maltodextrin, that could potentially be the reason why the Guyton’s Medical Physiology talks about it creating a fatty liver.
Why You Should Increase Vegetable in a Ketogenic Diet?
• It enhances the nutrient profile.
• Veggies have the highest concentration of nitrates (the natural form of nitrates that are beneficial to the heart and has the potential to protect against fatty liver).
• The fiber in the vegetables can provide the microbes the food it needs to produce butyric acid which can lower insulin.
• Phytonutrients – it helps protect the tissues from damage, helps detoxify chemicals, helps reduce inflammatory conditions in the liver
