New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Dr. Berg’s Healthy Keto Basics: Step 2: WHAT TO EAT?
alright guys you just watched my basic plan the overview this is video 2 we’re going to dig into some more of the details this is mainly for people that are new to my channel again I have 2500 videos and if you can get lost in all the details this is the second video that you should watch and we’re combining a healthy keto within a minute fasting okay alright number one you want to go as long as you can in the morning without eating you just don’t want to eat unless you’re hungry that’s the the thing that you need to focus on because so many people eat when they’re not hungry and they’re wondering why it’s not working they’re not getting results because the body finally is burning fat and then you start eating what will happen is you’re gonna raise insulin and then if your instants gonna come high and then it’s gonna push your blood Sugar’s low then you’re gonna be hungry an hour and a half later so really it’s what you ate the night before that’s gonna dictate if you’re hungry in the morning if you do this correctly like I’m showing you with just two meals a day you’re gonna wake up in the morning not hungry so the goal is to go as long as you can you may find that you can’t go all the way to lunch you have to eat it like 11 o’clock fine eat your breakfast there okay but what will happen you want to keep pushing it to the point where your your body is fully adapted to fat-burning you’re no longer sugar burning that could take three days up to five days sometimes it takes longer to get into full ketosis alright so that’s the first rule of thumb if we can do two meals with a four-hour window okay and what that means is that we eat and then we wait for hours and we eat again that’s your window that will give you a 20 hour fasting period that’s incredible that’s enough to see some serious results the only time that would not work for someone as far as weight loss goes is let’s say they’re going through menopause they have a slow thyroid condition and they have a history of dieting and their metabolism is so slow they’re gonna have to push these together have one meal a day and then they will lose weight and there are even people that still will lose just a little bit on this and they might need to go even longer because their metabolism is so dead and I’ve had this happen not to a lot of people but certain people that just you know from birth they just had a slow metabolism for one thing or another and they need to go like probably eat every other day okay that’s just what they need to do until the system heals but for everyone else we’re going to talk about what are you gonna eat on this first meal and the second meal I’ve surveyed a lot of people and this is what they eat and this is what I hate eggs I do four eggs a day you can do 2 to 4 eggs pasture-raised or organic eggs they’re a little more expensive but they’re worth it now it’s really important to eat healthy eggs because the factory farm eggs are just so bad they’re just terrible then we have avocado avocado has tremendous amount of potassium and really good fats to help you go longer she’s now if you are a guy and you have a prostate condition don’t do the cheese but if you have a high quality organic cheese from a grass-fed cow goat’s cheese is even better not a problem okay so then we have bacon some people don’t want to do bacon that’s totally fine I like bacon I do bacon from the farmers market if you’re gonna go to a huffin store get the nitrate free Organic bacon with with sugars less than one gram okay bacon by the way and pork has high levels of vitamin b1 and for those people are saying bacon is unhealthy yet they’re consuming chicken I would beg to differ because chicken is really disgusting unless you’re doing again from the farmers market okay nut butters you can do almond butter peanut butter make sure there’s no sugar in it maybe a couple of tablespoons now the reason for this is to give you enough fat especially in the beginning so you can go longer okay without getting hungry you know you’re eating at 12 you have a hamburger or a piece of meat or any a lamb or whatever meat that you want three to six ounces let’s say you’re younger and you have a faster metabolism then you do eight ounces let’s say for example you’re an athlete you do eight ounces let’s say you’re a very large person you need more protein do eight ounces I wouldn’t want to go over eight ounces per meal now we’re not talking about actual protein grams we’re talking about the actual product of meat itself okay three to six ounces or eight ounces so you don’t have to calculate the grams inside that meat but it is a big difference and then we consume our vegetables you can steam them you can have some raw or the salad I do a lot of salads we need a large amount of salad so some people break up their salad between this meal here in this meal and they do maybe five cups and five cups or maybe four cups and four cups I mean four cups is not that that much it’s just it’s kind of like a medium sized salad I personally do all of my salad at one sitting I’ll do like ten cups and sometimes I’ll do more than that so I’m used to it if you feel worse with consuming those greens that means that you’re microbes are not quite in the right place you might have a condition called SIBO I’ll put a link down below in which case you want to cut back on your vegetables because what’s gonna happen the fiber in the vegetable is going to retain fluid and you’re gonna feel bloated and you’re gonna your weight loss is not gonna come off it’s not because you’re not losing weight it’s because you’re retaining fluid okay just realize you want to feel good after consuming this and you may have to eat small amounts and gradually increase it because guess who’s eating your the fiber from your vegetables the microbes and they might not be plentiful enough to do that so there’s many different reasons I’ll put a video down below just on that one topic olive oil balsamic vinaigrette is a great dressing maybe a handful of nuts some seeds because we want that fat so this is like one option of a meal this is another option of meal just to give you an example I put a link down below to my website because I have a lot of different examples of different meals I have a whole recipe but this would be an example of a typical meal for someone okay let’s say you do fish I love salmon is one of the best proteins because it has omega-3 we want to do quality protein so you can also do sardines believe it or not there are good fats in sardines I did a video on that for seafood okay this gives you the iodine so you do your fish or seafood your salad this is for your dinner and a fat bomb what is the fat bomb it’s like a little cookie with healthy fats in it you can make recipes for this a lot of people consume a fat bomb just to get them satisfied so they can go from one meal to the next as your body adapts to fat burning you probably won’t even need that because you’re burning your own fat but in the beginning it’s really helpful here’s another option for some food you can do chicken with the skin preferably nice and crispy or chicken wings let’s say you do again treat it six ounces of chicken and chicken wings do your protein it’s moderate protein asparagus okay or any other vegetable that you like or your salad and then you do olives as your fat okay I do a lot of nuts myself I do that after the meal to the point where I’m like really satisfied so I can go longer but the key is not snacking at night so you want to add enough fat to go from this meal all the way to breakfast now the number one weakness people have I just realized was boredom so you’re gonna have to keep really busy right here and make sure you’re not bored so you don’t eat the wrong thing you can consume your vitamins it’s not a problem any time of the day apple cider vinegar teaspoon and some lemon is really good to have when you drink water coffee in the morning try to just do one you can do tea you can add some bulletproof that’s a MCT oil coconut oil you can put that blend that in your drink if you want especially in the beginning to allow you to go without having the first meal not a problem but if you find that that slows down your weight loss as you do this over a period of a couple weeks and you might want to drop out the extra fat urged a snack that means you need more fat and more greens more vegetables those two things will solve the problem if you crave bread you need more B vitamins I recommend electrolytes a good powder B vitamins and or nutritional yeast you can get them in tablets very important just to make this transition smooth so you have no problems C so don’t be afraid to add more sea salt because you’re gonna need more salt you’re gonna dump more fluid on this program and so you have to replace it the best time to exercise is when you’re fasting so in the morning okay it’s actually you get better benefits realize that it could take longer to adapt but the way that you know you’re in hardcore ketosis is that you crave nothing you’re not even hungry anymore that’s when you know what’s really working better than any other test this should give you the next layer of information or knowledge you need to know and I will see you in the third video if you’re liking this

If you are new to Dr. Berg’s channel, this is the second video to watch. Dr. Berg talks about the basics of healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting.
1. Go as long as you can in the morning without eating. “Don’t eat when you are hungry”.
Keep pushing it to the point where your body is fully adapted to fat-burning and you’re no longer in sugar-burning. And it could take 3 to 5 days or longer into full ketosis.
Try doing 2 meals a day with 4 hour eating window – that will give you a 20 hours fasting period and can give you results except if you’re going through situations like:
• Slow thyroid condition
• History of Dieting
• Slow Metabolism
You have to then push the meal plan into only eating one meal a day to see significant results. But there are some cases that they still wouldn’t see results or weight loss, then they have to go even longer or as long as they can until the system heals.
2. What to eat during meals?
Meal Option 1
• Eggs (2-4) – Pasture-raised Organic
• Nut Butter – Almond butter, Peanut butter (Sugar-free)
Meal Option 2
• Meat (3-6 oz.)
• Vegetables or Salad – Olive oil + Vinegar
• Nuts / Seeds
Meal Option 3
• Fish / Sea Food – Salmon, sardines (
• Fat Bomb (
Meal Option 4
• Chicken (with skin)
Important Things to Remember:
• It’s okay to consume vitamins any time of the day
• ACV or Apple Cider Vinegar / Lemon
• Coffee / Tea – Do only one in the morning. Or make a bulletproof coffee (MCT Oil, Butter)
• Urge to Snack – It means you need more fat and greens.
• Craving for bread – You need more B vitamins (Electrolytes, B vitamins, Sea Salt and nutritional yeast)
• Exercise – Best time is when you are fasting.
• Adapt – 3 to 5 days or longer. The way to know you are in ketosis is you don’t crave anymore.
This is the second video that you should watch and we are combining healthy keto with intermittent fasting. Number 1, you want to go as long as you can in the morning without eating. You just don’t want to eat when you’re hungry. That’s the thing that you need to focus on because so many people eat when they are not hungry and they are wondering why it’s not working or they are not getting results. Because the body is finally burning fat and then you start eating, what will happen is you’re going to raise insulin and then your insulin is going to come high and then it’s going to push your blood sugars low then you’ll going to be hungry an hour and a half later.
