New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Dr. Berg’s Webinar on Healthy Ketosis & Intermittent Fasting?
hey guys listen welcome to the webinar on healthy ketosis in intermittent fasting okay now one thing I hate about webinars is when they talk about all this fluff at the beginning of the webinar and so it takes forever to get into the substance like the meat and potatoes well maybe I shouldn’t talk about me and potatoes but I want to dive right into the content right after I introduce myself okay for those of you that don’t know me my name is dr. Eric Berg I graduated 29 years ago as a chiropractor I don’t do chiropractic anymore I specialize in nutrition keto and in a minute fasting I had a clinic in Northern Virginia for over 29 years it worked on 45,000 different people so I haven’t had a chance to really work one-on-one with massive amount of people to figure things out and that’s what I do now is I share the results from the clinic on YouTube and I do a lot of videos and I do this full time I also taught at Howard University as an associate professor in the health department so I taught nutrition there also is the best-selling author from my new one of my older books called the seven principles of fat burning which has been majorly upgraded to the new body type guide which which I recommend this is the one I recommend that you read not the older version because there’s a lot of updates a lot of updates okay probably a thousand hours of work on updating that book I also train over 2,500 doctors over the last 10 years and I certified them in my techniques I also delivered over 4,900 seminars in my clinic around town and in pretty much all the governmental agencies in Washington DC presently have over 2,500 YouTube videos and over 155 million views over a million subscribers so my goal right now is to disseminate the truth about health personally my story real quick real quick I grew up in the Midwest I was raised on typical diet ain’t a whole lot of sugar I mean excessive amounts of sugar and this went went on and on and on up until I was probably my late 20s in fact I don’t think I even ever aid a vegetable until I was 21 I hated vegetables I didn’t eat them the only thing green that I consumed was pistachio ice cream and lime green jello okay so I had a lot of stuff my grandmother was an amazing cook and she would cook a lot of carbs a lot of cakes a ton of junk food and I would consume not just a little bit but a lot this went on I got into sports wrestling primarily wrestled through junior high school and high school and college but what happened I would go into the season undefeated and then barely make it through the end of the season because I was so tired because my diet was so terrible I didn’t know about nutrition I had zero data on nutrition like it was really bad so I don’t know how I survived the season that I ended up just scraping through so if you see some of my pictures that I’m presenting you can see me looking very tired and very weak so if you’ve hurt went through a wrestling practice right it’s intense but with all that fatigue I do not know how I made it I also then went into the military for about five years in reserves and basically pushed myself through basic training and again barely made it through the PT test because the combination of stress poor eating lack of sleep I mean I had some serious blood sugar issues back then I didn’t know it until it finally caught up with me in my late twenties to the point where I had almost like sand in my eyes that was blood sugar issue dry eyes to the extreme arthritis chronic fatigue syndrome massive blood sugar mood disorder issues insomnia I had a lot of problems okay I mean a lot of problems to the point where I became very motivated to get well so I’d be driving on the street to get help and see this little building over here oh the health house well let me go there maybe they can help me come out with a bunch of pills oh let me try this over here this is a health food store let me get some more vitamins let me try this vitamin I was reaching for straws trying everything I had a warehouse of vitamins but I didn’t know what I was doing so it really didn’t help until I stumbled on some information that was the right thing they had to do with blood sugars and insulin which then I started to change my diet now I’ll never forget this I remember cutting out cereal for breakfast and having more protein and I just like oh my god I feel so good like my head felt so good and I’m like wow this is really good so I started to make little changes more and more I went to a healthcare practitioner that found my liver is really bad so I started working on that and then I come home and I tell my wife honey I’m quitting the practice I’m going into nutrition she goes what I said yeah I no longer want to do you know traditional chiropractic I’m gonna do nutrition she goes you know know anything about it I says well I’m gonna learn so I started to get everything I could flying around the country learned doing postgraduate seminars getting training and certifications but the real knowledge came from working one-on-one with so many people over the over the years but I just had this intense interest to study obsessively 24/7 weekends and I never stopped so I’m so interested in the body and how it works I pretty much relearned everything that I learned from school because in school they don’t teach you how to apply it and from that came up with some great things I’m going to share with you okay so here’s the peers the problem the current model of health care is that you have a symptom and you treat it and then you manage it and the symptom goes away and you continue the medications and then you just keep going okay so it’s basically managed care manage your symptoms there’s real little evaluation there’s basically just suppressing a symptom and so all the while the health really doesn’t increase so what’s missing in health care is the health part because what happens you don’t actually lose weight and get healthy you have to get healthy first before you lose weight and getting healthy is not necessarily just about putting nutrients in the body that’s part of it but it’s all about getting rid of stuff that you don’t need okay well we’ll talk more about that as we go through this but if you look around the most common health problems out there nowadays and I’m just gonna list the most common ones stubborn belly fat like so many people have that I mean it’s just everywhere so that’s one thing that is a health problem fatigue people are tired they’re tired mid-afternoon like I was they are tired after they eat and then we have problems sleeping they don’t wake up in the morning feel refreshed they lost that vitality they don’t you can’t get the sleep they’re excessively thinking 24/7 when they’re trying to sleep they get up in the middle of night they have sleep apnea they they have a lot of sleep issues and then you have all sorts of mood disorders anxiety depression very common emotional rollercoaster stuff memory loss they go in a room they can’t quite remember why they went in there their tolerance for stress is low people get on their nerves easily I know that’s hard to believe right but it’s a very very common so these are the common symptoms that most people have but then it actually shifts to more and more issues that related to blood sugars like cravings for carbs can’t go a long time without eating your nation at night cravings for chocolate and chips and salt so this is this is what happens and then down the road these problems magnified so you get inflammatory conditions you get memory issues dementia you get a fatty liver you eventually become a diabetic you have problems with heart problems clogged artery potential heart attack and stroke but other than that you’re doing pretty good right other than the high blood pressure and the cholesterol you’re doing fine so what I want to talk about is cause and effect if we take all of the conditions out there that are and if we look at the common thread that goes amongst all these symptoms both short-term and long-term there’s one thing that comes up that’s so common and that is insulin resistance insulin resistance so I want to talk about that because if you don’t know about this I would definitely pay attention because this is the main culprit this is the cause of all these issues and if you understand it you can quickly rapidly reverse it and improve your health way way more than anything else way more than taking a vitamin way more than exercise so it’s all based on this one thing insulin resistance um what is it well most people know insulin is a hormone that’s made by the pancreas and they know that it reduces blood sugars but that’s kind of where it stops but insulin has a lot of other functions too so but typically at this point I just want to let you know it reduces blood sugars so if you eat sugar or carbs your blood sugar goes up insulin kicks in there and it brings it down okay so that’s that’s what insulin is but what happens is the body doesn’t like too much insulin especially if you’re consuming too many carbs an average person consumes about 30 but 28 to 31 teaspoons of sugar every single day I know well normally we should only have you know one teaspoon but we can get that from protein and other foods we don’t need to take any sugar there’s no such thing as an essential carbohydrate so what happens is as a protective mechanism as a defense against the toxic effect of insulin and sugar the body starts to block this insulin starts to resist it so what happens it goes into the cell and then it’s not received properly so it’s kind of like if you talk to someone and they’re just talking too much and they won’t shut up they just go on and on you’re gonna phase them out but when you stop listening to them they keep talking that you talking more and more right so that’s what happens and within some resistance when you when that insulin too much communication goes in the cell and it’s toxic the body blocks it but then there’s no feedback to let the pancreas know to turn off the insulin so the pancreas makes more in more and more insulin okay so so that’s what happens so an average person that as insulin resistance has basically five to seven times more insulin than a normal person so this is not good so we have the situation we have a lot of insulin but it’s not working in the body it’s not a good combination okay because one of the purposes of insulin is to help fuel the cell and if the cell is blocked and you starve the cell of fuel it starts craving things okay starts craving and it can’t do its work it becomes weak and it creates a lot of other issues so what the body does is it tends to recruit sugar from other sources like stored sugar in the liver for example so the body will start using up that sugar okay especially the brain the brain demands like most of the sugar in the body it needs a certain amount of sugar so in the blood if there’s not enough sugar because there’s a problem with insulin because it’s unavailable the brain suffers first and that’s why people have a lot of cognitive issues they have two things one is cognitive issues which is memory concentration focus issues and then they have actual memory going a room they can’t quite remember when they went in there and then they have mood disorders okay so their mood starts to go down grouchy irritable angry anxiety depression and even anything with the head like headaches that’s a blood sugar thing it’s a total blood sugar thing it’s insulin resistance that’s what it is now in the cell the insula the what happens is insulin lowers a sugar and what it does it converts it into fat so this is really important so if you’ve checked out just check back in right now because this point is vital insulin does it when it lowers the sugar it puts the excess into storage so infant is all about storing fat it’s a fat storing hormone it’s a dominant fat storing hormone because in the presence of a little bit of insulin you’re gonna be storing fat like crazy okay so that’s really what happens so it’s it stores sugar it uses it actually uses the sugars fuel but it also stores it as fat and cholesterol and triglycerides so all the most of the cholesterol in someone’s body is coming from the glucose and then also it prevents the burning of fat so in the presence of insulin you’re not going to burn fat so it blocks that so you can’t lose weight so everyone walking around with a gut you got too much insulin okay so lowers blood sugars it’s store sugar it makes fat prevents fat burning and now it does cup all the things it helps you absorb protein amino acids so without that you start having loss of muscle mass you have problems with wasting of cartilage and connective tissue and ligaments and tendons problems and loss of discs and your spine so you start shrinking sagging skin right here sagging belly skin this is inability to build muscle when you workout it’s because the cell can’t pull in protein also insulin has a lot to do with absorbing minerals specifically potassium I mean think about if you become do petition and potassium which most people are because we need so much we need like almost 5 grams of it that’s 5,000 milligrams every single day that’s a lot we need that but to get that you have to eat large quantities of vegetables like seven to ten cups no one does that so on top of insulin resistance you become so depleted of potassium you’re gonna notice leg cramps you’re gonna notice fatigue you’re gonna notice arrhythmias in the heart you’re gonna notice an inability to feel calm because potassium is a physiological relax or a tranquilizer it calmed things down insulin also is like the key that unlocks the door that allows you to absorb and other nutrients to vitamins as well so you’re basically your nutrient deprived so it doesn’t matter what vitamins you take you can’t pull it in so insulin is really important very important now here’s what happens check this out so we start with high insulin right and then we go for many years as your body develops insulin resistance with normal blood sugars so because insulin resistance is compensating for this excess and trying to help you regulate it and it pumps out more insulin to keep the sugar down your blood sugars stay normal so check this out you have high levels of insulin that then progress for years okay so you have insulin resistance the body’s trying to compensate for that by producing more insulin to drive in the message into the cell and try to keep things going okay but we have normal blood sugars normal blood sugars for decades okay so now eventually the cell loses its power and its ability to compensate and now it’s for some reason stops putting out more insulin can’t compensate any more to keep up the demand and now the sugars start going up sugars go up and up and that’s when you get diabetes okay so that’s the mechanism but here’s the thing that doctors never ever ever test fasting insulin because if they did they would have caught this a long time ago now in this process some people like myself don’t just go right to high sugar they first go to low sugar it’s called hypoglycemia or low blood sugar and so I just want to name off some of the symptoms because if your adrenals are involved or your liver is unhealthy then you’re going to experience more symptoms with low blood sugars because the adrenal in the liver helps to prevent the sugars from dropping down to low if the sugars get too low it starts release seeing hormones like cortisol the adrenal stress hormone and even adrenaline and even hormones from the liver to release a lot of storage sugar it’s caught basically dumps the sugar from the liver to counter the low blood sugar so if your liver or your dream ills are weak then you’re going to start seeing a lot more symptoms with low blood sugar because you don’t have the help from the adrenals to prevent low blood sugar okay so hungry between meals that’s a common symptom definitely craving for sweets nervous irritability brain fog tremors shakiness fatigue anxiety panic attacks sweating heart palpitations confusion cold extremities like your hands or your feet migraines tinnitus schizophrenia forgetfulness itching vaginal yeast infections fainting insomnia crying spells decreased libido and women sighing frequently and yawning an increase heart rate and there’s others as well those are all low blood sugar symptoms whereas high blood sugar symptoms increased thirst sleeping after meals increase urination especially at night and the volume of glucose because think about your body’s trying to dilute the sugar as a mechanism to protect you so it actually gets rid of the glucose through peeing frequently so your body’s trying to help you and getting thirsty to get to dilute the excess of sugar that’s why trouble concentrating weakness tingling sensation high blood pressure because the arteries get stiff restlessness inflammation inflammatory conditions anywhere frequent hunger that’s why you need to eat every hour and a half dry mouth dry skin erectile disfunction ear infections kidney damage cardiovascular which we’ll get into peripheral neuropathy retinal damage that’s the I fatty liver stroke heart attack aneurysm that’s like a ballooning out of the arteries because the you start getting weakness with the the wall of the vessels cataracts that’s the cloudiness on the lens so it’s like opaque so you can’t quite see clearly anymore and the list goes on and on and on and on okay so those are just some of the symptoms with hyper glycaemia well hyperinsulinemia which is high insulin we just covered that but short term high blood pressure sodium retention high cholesterol high triglycerides so those are all that’s all the symptoms from metabolic syndrome okay that’s what causes metabolic syndrome brain fog polycystic ovarian syndrome decreased concentration and then long term heart attack thickened arteries caused by blood pressure blood clots if it’s in the hardest heart attack if it’s in the brain it’s a stroke Alzheimer’s because you get plaque in the brain stroke dementia and the list goes on and on and on so when you have high insulin or high sugar you get sties in the eyes you get redness underneath the eyelids a lot of irritation it feels like there’s a foreign object in the eye that you have to rub it it could be like feeling like a sand I had that dry eyes and the cataracts which is the kind of the whiteness on the eye so what happens with the cataract is you start seeing cloudiness and then they have to do surgery but you can be totally prevented if you keep the insulin low so then you have something called diet diabetic retinopathy now if you think about on the back part of the eye you have the retina the retina is nerve tissue that extends outside the brain okay so retina is basically your brain outside your brain in the eye okay so it’s a visible part of the inside of the eye but it’s part of the brain it connects to the optic nerve that goes directly back into your brain so what happens is get damage from the high sugar with the tiny micro blood vessels that feed the nerves the retina okay and you start getting floaters you start getting a demon swelling and you start getting stickiness and and starving the nerves and eventually go blind that’s what that’s the leading cause of blindness in diabetics is diabetic retinopathy retina means disease of the retina okay so you get all these issues and it’s very very common and you start getting blurred vision glaucoma is also affected by her sugar where the pressure starts increasing in the eye to the point where it starts compressing all the inside structures of the eye so you get damaged with the lens the retina all these other issues you get dry eyes I had that okay and the tear ducts tend to dry up and the eyes just become very brittle and they tear in the rip and you get corneal erosion yeah a lot of issues now in the feet the bottom of the feet and the toes and the fingertips you get something called peripheral neuropathy okay which is damaged it’s again it’s it’s the micro vascular damaged blood vessels that supply the nerve so then the nerve dies and so the first symptom is pins and needles tingling burning pain then it goes to numbness then it goes to necrosis which is dead and dying tissue and we call that gangrene and it starts spreading with the toes so they chopped off the toe and then the foot I mean it’s insane completely unnecessary and by the way if a person has enough nutrition in their body and they’re not deprived of nutrients specifically the B vitamins specifically b1 they’re less likely to get peripheral neuropathy by the way and diabetic retinopathy that’s a side note so nutrition that does have important part of it but the carbs that people are eating are depleting the nutrients okay now what’s happening to the eye and the feed is happening in the artery the inner lining of the made major vessels to the heart especially the coronary which comes from the word crown because it’s a it’s like a right around the heart what happens you start getting damaged in the endothelial cells which is the internal lining of the arteries you start getting lesions or breakage in that and those cells so what at that point you’re gonna get leaking the blood so and your body is going to sense that we need to do some healing so now comes the cholesterol and the fibrin which is the protein and then the calcium and the white blood cells and you have inflammatory condition to try to heal it and that’s what forms the plaques so cholesterol is not the bad guy it’s at the crime scene but it didn’t start the problem it only is trying to help patch the problem so another piece of information that most people don’t understand and then you’d eventually get a clot okay which is different than plaque plaque is more hard then you can have a soft plaque and then a clot that can form if the clot goes up to the brain you get a stroke if it if it gets stuck in the heart you get a heart attack here’s a picture of a micro hemorrhaging of the lining of the artery in the brain you get you basically kill off your brain cells and you have atrophy of the brain your actual brain shrinks yeah and it affects the obstruction the brain called the hippocampus which comes from the Latin word which means seahorse because it looks like a seahorse but when you destroy the hippocampus you start getting amnesia that’s the symptom memory loss okay early signs of Alzheimer’s Alzheimer’s is really diabetes type three now let’s talk about this because the liver is really the hub of this whole insulin resistance thing because what’s happening is a lot of this damage is happening in the liver your liver is trying to cope with this and all the extra carbs are being converted to fat around the liver first so that’s the first target that you’re going to get you’re going to fill up the liver with fat then it’s going to turn into scar tissue that cirrhosis which is gonna be very inflamed so you can get inflamed scar tissue ridden and fatty liver if the person has belly fat they have a fatty liver okay so now I want to mention this before I get into the next part and that is this normal blood sugars when you go to the doctor or they’ll check your blood sugars it should be between like eighty and a hundred but it should be like better be like between 80 and 90 milligrams per deciliter and I want explain what that means what that means something like a a teaspoon of sugar per all of the blood in the body so you have about a gallon and a third of blood in your entire body for an average person sounds a bit more sometimes a little less but if you take 165 year old person gave about a gallon and a third of blood so if you took one teaspoon of sugar and mixed it all through that that’s what normal blood sugar is but an average person consumes a lot more than that up to 31 teaspoons a day that’s like in sane so that’s basically 31 two spoons too much yeah but it’s hidden as breads pasta cereal crackers biscuits waffles pancakes muffins so those juice and alcohol so that’s what happens it’s all hidden people say oh I don’t need sugar yeah but you’re eating wheat and breads and things like that so instant resistance is a compensation to protect you against the excess sugar if you don’t change your diet your body will then block it from going in but then it comes with the package and your buy tries to help you only so long until finally you can’t do it anymore okay so now I want to talk about something very interesting insulin resistance happens in themselves but it can also happen and it does happen in your fat cells think about this if you have instant resistance in your fat cells then what’s going to happen it’s not going to let any more fat in there anymore or at glucose it’s not going to convert glucose into fat it’s not going to let any more fat in there because it’s resisting it because it’s filled up so with insulin resistance what the body is trying to do is get all the sugar out of the body and stick it into the fat cell but there’s a point where your fat cell gets it’s like a balloon it gets only so much where it gets filled up then it spills over into the organs into the liver around the organs as in the gut it’s called visceral fat fat around the organs that’s the spillover because your cells are saturated with fat it’s like that balloon is gonna pop it can’t take anymore fat you ever see that those movies aren’t like hoarders where they in their house is just packed with stuff same thing happening but in your body so this picture like you have this garbage that you you you never take out so you stick the garbage and the sink and then you stick it into the cabinet and then you stick it into living room and in the bedroom and then over time your entire house becomes unlivable because there’s no more spaces this is exactly what’s happening when you see someone with a belly they have insulin resistance so to such an extreme that the liver is filled with fat if I ever had an ultrasound they would see that around the organs is fat and it’s just sticking out through the gut that is like one of the biggest indicators that you have some seriousness and resistance and your fat cells are to the extreme so it’s dangerous because now the fats going to spill over in the organs around the organs that plug everything up ok so you can see right here on the left side of the screen normal fat cells and then the large fat cells and you will always see these large overinflated fats with insulin resistance okay the name for it is called hypertrophic out of a sight okay you don’t need to know that but the point is that they just become so big okay now at this point someone is then going to lose control of the insulin resistance and now if that is max then the sugars are gonna start to going up okay why because all the fat around the organ in the arteries in the liver and the pancreas it’s gonna block function so things can’t work anymore so you’re gonna have a gradual shutdown of your organs that’s why I diabetic is as a 22 times more likely increase of mortality rates they’re gonna die 22 times more than normal healthy person because of all these other complications that are occurring but most people don’t even see the high sugar yet they get all these symptoms because it’s high insulin and eventually they get the high sugar so it’s a wake up call and then put on metformin which actually improves insulin resistance without usually correcting the diet so now what’s gonna happen is they’re gonna stabilize the blood sugar but they never fix the real problem so the problem goes on and the what do you think this sugar is going it’s again it’s sticking around the organ so the person gets worse and worse and worse worse to the point where the blood sugars aren’t working anymore even with glucophage or metformin and so now they need insulin so a diabetic type 2 is now taking insulin and glucose is at the same time god it’s terrible because the person already has too much insulin so now we’re going to actually add more complications this is like completely and utterly insane because the person’s going to get worse they’re going to start having vision issues because the actual cause it’s not corrected and then you’re going to eventually have some serious side effects and eventually die and the doctors going to say well these are the problems with the diabetic that’s what happens we just try to extend the life well you actually shorten the life by giving the person too in Flint and then they give you a bag of candy so they can compensate by it because you don’t want to go down too low completely in utter insanity okay all right so now you know about that let’s talk about what we can do about this the most powerful thing you need to understand is what diabetes is and what insulin resistance is it’s basically too many carbs in the systems too much sugar in the body the body is toxic of sugar and refined carbs that’s what the problem is okay it says too much insulin so the insulin is responding to the glucose from the diet and the carbs and the hidden sugars so what we want to do is we want to reduce to cut out the carbs okay we want to cut down the carbs so we want to apply a diet that has a long-term health effect that can lower the carbs so the one you want to do is called a healthy keto healthy ketosis now the difference between a healthy keto diet in traditional keto is that the healthy ketosis is something that I am recommending as a tweak because it adds a lot more vegetables into this diet where by other types of ketosis programs do not if you’re dumping in reversing this problem and trying to extract all the fat from the fat cells and around the organs it has to come out through the liver if you don’t have enough vegetables to compensate and help clear out this fat you could end up with more of a fatty liver so by going on a low-carb diet that’s going to instantly stop it from getting any worse like that within a week it’s not going to be stopping from getting you worse that’s good but then we want to do is you want to reverse it and start cleaning out all the fat from the fat cells that’s when we do in a minute fasting why because in a minute fasting is that it is not a diet but a frequency of eating and not eating here’s the data that you might not know when you you trigger insulin so for the more frequent eating the worse it gets the snacks in between meals bad idea so the body regardless of what you eat if you’re eating it’ll spike insulin so we want to lessen the frequency of eating because that is going to take the pressure and the stress off the system and start utilizing this overwhelming spilling off of fat that’s going all over around the organs so when you’re doing animal fasting and combined with healthy ketosis you’re basically using the most two powerful things you can do to extract all this fat out of the system and actually reverse insulin resistance to a point where your body can start to fuel itself and absorb nutrients then the nutrients will work before they didn’t okay so so we’ve got to cut the carbs down now protein by the way we don’t want to do a high-protein diet and this is the confusion with ketosis people think it’s a high protein diet no it’s not it’s moderate protein it’s between three and five oh three to six grams of protein per meal that’s moderate that’s easy to do if you have too much protein you’ll spike insulin yeah so we don’t want to do large quantities of protein now the only food that does not trigger insulin to any significant degree would be fat which is fascinating because we’ve been so fat phobic for years back in the 50s there was two viewpoints one is that fat caused coronary heart disease on the other viewpoint was sugar caused coronary heart disease as a primary thing but apparently the fat model the fat connection actually stuck and all these years we’ve been thoroughly indoctrinated and brainwashed to the point where people actually are still afraid of fat causing heart disease but before in the 50s we didn’t have that beer okay now would you like to know where that came from would you like to know I’m gonna tell you recently there was a some leaked documents 300 pages between 1957 I think in 1971 and in this in these documents it was a dialogue going back and forth between the sugar Research Foundation and scientists and I have a summary of this right here okay and I’m just going to give you the gist of it this is what happened this sugar Research Foundation which is kind of a front group for the sugar industry basically did research and found they themselves did research and found a huge connection between consuming sucrose and causing heart disease okay so they saw that so that’s not good right for sales so what they did they had a plan of action a strategy that was to two things one was to omit their research data that sugar caused this problem or increased the risk suppress it actually ignore it don’t talk about it don’t emphasize it and then number two emphasize the fat cholesterol heart disease connection big-time so they hired researchers and scientists they hired a guy by the name of Frederick Starck and he was the main leading expert in nutrition at Harvard University School of Health Department at the time so they Kellogg’s and several other companies including tobacco company sugar sugar industry paid him a million dollars back in I think in 1965 okay and by the way over the next twenty nine years he’s also paid 29 million dollars okay basically they you get bought off and and he basically did those two things he D emphasized the sugar connection and emphasized the fat connection so that’s really where this whole thing came from the sugar industry and they did the same thing in 1971 with the dental cavities with the whole dentist industry because they didn’t want to cut the sugar out of the diets unfortunately in 1965 I was born every single one of my teeth had filled cavity so I wish that data had not been suppressed and we could have I could have grew up without all this extra sugar my parents didn’t you know they just let me eat pretty much whatever I wanted being the Midwest because I didn’t have any symptoms I was a kid right I had blood sugar problems when I was 11 years old so that’s where it all came from for your information I also want to just mention one little thing about insulin insulin has been around for about two billion years on this planet certain mollusks fish single-cell organisms with a nucleus aim snails used insulin as a weapon it’s called the feminists cone snail for example would inject their prey with insulin to drop the blood sugars so they become stunned and kind of paralyzed and kind of tired so then they can take over so it’s been a kind of a mechanism in the animal kingdom Kingdom for quite a while and then even 1927 the psychiatrist used something called insulin shock therapy to so-called cure people and they wouldn’t have large doses of injections with insulin to drop the blood sugars to put people in comas for several weeks some people would have 50 to 60 comas before the maximum benefits were achieved they said this therapy jolted jolted them out of their mental illness and I’m not kidding is this barbaric the problem is it has a risk of death and brain damage from prolonged coma it would actually wake up fat crazy so at the time they said the brain damage was actually therapeutic improvements because it showed a loss of tension and nervousness and things like that completely insane and then of course shortly after that they replaced it with electric shock therapy and that’s medicine and it’s best completely insane and now they’re using drug therapy which by the way has massive side effects and suicide so anyway the number one disease that kills most people is heart disease number two is cancer by the way guess what cancer lives on sugar so again if you want to feed cancer just keep eating sugar and then number three is three the third cause of death is medical errors I call out row genic disease physician cause illness okay it’s number three and then we have the lower respiratory diseases and an accidents and then strokes and in Alzheimer’s and diabetes influenza so you can see that several of these coming causes of death actually are originating from high levels of insulin especially the first two alright so now how do we solve this problem what we want to do is we want to implement keto and intermittent fasting ki now what makes Kido Kido and by the way Kido is involved in a condition of fat burning where your body is breaking fat down into ketones to be used as an alternative fuel okay ketones are much cleaner than glucose so but we want to go from sugar burning to fat burning that’s the goal and in the process of adapting we basically need to build up new cell cell machinery to actually run in fat and glucose so your body can do that the only way to do that is to drop your carbs way down and then the body is no choice but to start utilizing fat so it adapts it takes like three days to sometimes up to three four or five weeks to fully adapt into ketosis now in the process your body needs more potassium and it needs more B vitamins so we always recommend nutritional yeast and a lot of salads okay those two right there will help you make the transition very smoothly now I want to briefly talk about insulin triggers sugar refined grains okay like breads and pastas and things like that frequent eating excessive amounts of protein when you combine protein with carbs that will do it too fat with carbs will do it too like a donut deep fried carbohydrate vitamin D deficiency potassium deficiency soy oil it’s GMO that can trigger it as well artificial sweeteners trans fats cortisol that’s stress all those will trigger high levels of insulin how to lower insulin very simply lower the carbs do intermittent fasting add potassium from the diet of magnesium from the vegetables omega-3 fats which we’re gonna recommend vitamin D from the Sun magnesium from the vegetables and you can also add trace minerals chromium and zinc and even apple cider vinegar if you want which will really help they put it in some water put some lemon in there sip it with a straw that will greatly help your blood sugars now the type of ketogenic diet that I’m gonna recommend this would be if we look at calories 5% of the total calories carbs net carbs so you would take the total carb minus the fiber to get the net carb okay the next thing we recommend is 5% in calories of vegetables now if we’re doing 7 to 10 cups of vegetable per day why is it only 5% we’re talking about calories and vegetables don’t do not have a lot of calories okay they have a lot of volume but not a lot of calories but we need the salads we need the large quantities of vegetables to do this right very important and you’ll feel so much better when you do it okay then a 20% protein which comes out to 3 to 6 ounces per meal of course we’re doing them and fasting that’s a whole different story because we don’t need to we can reduce the amounts as we do through go through this but there’s no way you’re going to do one at 2,000 calories that’s a huge meal so maybe into 1200 calories and as your body doesn’t have been fasting it does not need the quantities of nutrients because your body conserves things it becomes very it kind of protects the loss of nutrients and proteins interesting so after the 20% protein you’re gonna do the rest fat okay we’ll talk more about that in a second so if you were to get your 4700 milligram dosage or requirement of potassium every day you would have to consume like 10 bananas or 5 avocados every day well we don’t want to do a bananas because it’s too sweet so we want the large vegetables we want the large salad okay so but it’s not hard if you do let’s say for example you do 3 meals and in each meal is a small salad of 3 or 4 cups you can easily hit your 10 cups a day but when you do in a minute fasting you’re doing like two meals or one meal then you need a little less maybe it’s 7 cups but it’s not hard to do this so one of those bags of lettuce that you get at the grocery store it’s usually about 7 or 8 ounces 1 ounce equals 1 cup ok so you can think with that just look at the ounces and that will tell you how many cups like one of those plastic containers of salad I like to get organic like they come in 8 ounce or sometimes they come in 20 ounce so just realize that if it’s 8 ounces that’s 8 cups so the big problem that people have even if they’re eating healthy is that they’re eating too frequently they’re doing 3 meals plus snacks plus snacks at night I’m guilty in fact my left and my first book this is what I recommended which was very very not good because it kept me from getting a hundred percent results and other people too especially if they had a slow metabolism so we don’t want to do that we want to start off with 3 meals no snacks at all how do you do that well at the meal you start with your salad first then your protein and then you want to add fat enough fat you can go from one meal to the next without being uncomfortable so that’s something you’re gonna have to adjust you know you can add brie cheese you can add peanut butter avocado coconut oil a little more butter you can add all these things cream cheese anything like that and then that’s gonna actually allow you to go from one meal to the next and then that big salad with all the potassium will also definitely help you too so it’ll be easy to do that if you make these changes but you always need to do healthy keep doses within a minute fasting together they don’t work individually because if you’re still eating carbs a lot of carbs and you’re doing intimate fasting you’ll never get into ketosis so you’re gonna basically start stretching out the times you don’t eat and literally make it hell for yourself because if you with blood sugars trying to go intimate fasting when you’re starving it’s gonna really create a brain strain it’s only when you convert over to fat-burning where your brain is happy and it’s like you don’t get hungry and you feel focused I have endurance all day long it’s the best thing for the brain but not if you’re eating carbs so three meals and then what happens is the rule is that you don’t eat if you’re not hungry okay don’t eat if you’re not hungry in the morning if you’re not hungry don’t eat but what we want to do after you comfortable three meals no snacks is start pushing your breakfast further and further towards lunch to the point where you make it it’s gone so you don’t eat in the morning you just have your first meal at lunch now you might think you’re starving yourself but now your body when you start doing it a man fasting it does something really weird and interesting the stress of that caused your body to survive at a certain level where it starts to recycle old damaged protein structure parts of the cell and microbes bacteria virus yeast fungus mold and Candida it cleans that of the cell it restructures everything it recycles it’s kind of becomes a self-cleaning oven it’s the ultimate in anti-aging also when you in a minute fast you basically spike human growth hormone by 1300 percent in women and up to 2,000 percent in men that’s incredible you don’t need to buy the injections you can just basically do this and start getting younger I’m in about two weeks from now I’ll be 53 years old okay there’s a lot of I looked at my high school reunion that I think it’s actually the 30th coming up or just past I was looking at some of these people I’m like oh my god they could be my grandparents so I would never say that to them but the point is that people are and their 50s are like they’re like they look old it’s crazy so we want to do 3 meals no snacks 2 meals and if you want to take the next level this is up to you you know play it by ear if you have a stubborn metabolism if you have soured issue and if you’re a diabetic and you have a lot of fat to lose eventually go to one meal a day you can totally do it with a lot of success because I know a lot of my clients do one meal a day and they’re so healthy and they’re losing weight and they feel euphoric because they’re doing fun and as soon as they ate all of a sudden oh they’re hungry an hour later because they spiked the blood sugars so there’s a way to undo that so here I have just an example so you can see if you’re doing three meals a day let’s average it say 1800 calories this is kind of an example of what you can eat with the proteins fats vegetables so you can see each meal looks like this right here and you can even pause this and kind of look at this a little longer but you can see if there’s avocados for the fat there’s protein there’s eggs if salad and then there’s a burger with cheese and then there’s some other foods looks like there’s some pork right here with this other dish alright so that’s three meals and then we have two meals a day where now we’re going to actually instead of keeping it at 1,800 calories maybe you go down to 1,500 calories okay we split it up have two bigger meals and that’s kind of what it would look like okay and then down to one meal 1200 calories it’s more quantity you can see the amount of protein fat and vegetable that’s that you would eat just to give you an example some people might discourage you especially the sugar sugar industry which is going to continue to put out that keto is the worst thing you can do don’t do a minute fasting and hurt your thyroid it’s rated the worst diet do the – diet really so in other words consumes 60 percent of your diet carbohydrates okay that makes sense I mean the American Diabetes Association the American Heart Association the American Society and obesity all recommend large quantities of carbohydrate and healthy grains it’s it’s all political they get funding from the food manufacturing and the drug companies so for you to trust them I mean that’s illogical because how can you trust someone that they’re they’re basically a front group get paid by that industry and sort of the dieticians so here’s what I recommend you do you do the kid out in a minute fasting see if it works for you which I already know it will see how good you feel lose the way and then do the – diet do some of the diets that are recommended by the American Heart Association and see how you feel and then you decide what is what’s works for you chemo is very healthy because when you do keto there could be some transitional issues that you just have to understand and go through and this is what I you don’t want to do this half way you want to do it all flat out if you’re gonna do it do it 100% so that means learn about it I recommend study how to do it before you do it so that way you can do it correctly because I can’t tell you how many people like oh I tried it and I’m I’m getting a side effect well that’s because you didn’t know you had to drink lemon juice you know when you do this or take B vitamins or nutritional yeast because you can have in the transition period you can have keto fatigue which is really a B vitamin deficiency or potassium you can have a little a gout flare up it’s only temporary that could happen if you don’t have lemon juice Kito flu which you just need more electrolytes that breath that means your proteins too high hair loss it means that your calories are too low I mean constipation you’re not consuming enough vegetables bloating you’re having too much fat so there’s all these little things that they can you can tweak and do it correct because this is about your health this is your real long-term health health insurance meanwhile my health insurance is crazy it’s like thirty one hundred dollars a month and there’s a huge deductible what do I get for that there’s not that mean just the catastrophe if something happened but the point is that you have to take health in your own hands the doctors are not trained by it it’s the whole system is designed for managing your symptoms not building up your health okay here’s what I recommend if you are serious about doing this correctly and you don’t want to invest a lot in it okay what I recommend is you I have a membership site that basically gives you the education step-by-step me taking you by the hand what to do answering every single question it’s quite extensive there’s over 200 videos in here you don’t have to watch all of them but it’s something that you can start learning about and it’s an organized way and get really good at applying this information and take your health to the next level okay and you can put it on any mobile device and you also get access to all of my recipes I have a full-time chef that it makes keto recipes and there are just a ton of recipes that you can actually have to get get access to I have some in my site but you’ll have access to all of them there’s quite a few kids meals keto for kids vegan keto meals bread alternatives and a ton more also you get access to what’s called my meal maker which you can design your own meals basically at a press of a button pick the foods you like press a button it generates a week of meals for you and it has all the recipes inside so you can see the ingredients and you have the meals because if you’re doing a program and you’re not planning it out for the week it might be more difficult because by Wednesday and let’s say you’re hungry and you might not go for what you should because get something quick and then you go off the program so you really want to plan this thing out so these are really really cool bonuses okay cost $39 a month okay or $18 a month for a year commitment it’s a prepay okay what I want to tell you is that when you do intermittent fasting and you’re not eating so frequent you’re going to be saving about three to five to six or even seven hundred dollars a month on food because you’re not going to be eating so frequently so that’s going to pay for itself and then some so really this program is gonna cost you zero because you’re gonna save so much money here but you’re also going to gain your health so it’s a small amount of investment to get all the knowledge but I put a lot of work into creating this membership site for you so you can learn yourself I’m not interested in doing what I did before or I basically spoon-fed everyone and Gabe and actually just how patients come in and doc fix me what I’m interested in is the educated person the people that are willing to be educated and learn on themselves here’s the tools this is how you do it fix yourself that’s not meant to so if you’re interested in self-improvement and you want to learn about it then this program is right for you if you want someone the spoon prove you and without the knowledge then this program is not for you at all there’s a full 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not thrilled with this program you can just get your money back okay I want you to be happy so these are all the different videos that you’re going to watch to make it really simple we have all the different videos on barriers that might come up with your body let’s say you’re bored you’re hungry or social situation or you’re not satisfied after you or what if you get discouraged we have every single handling for every single problem because we’ve been through this with so many people here’s some amazing recipes for alternative tasty pleasurable foods almond fudge healthy pizza almond pancakes and then body problems I mean if you have constipation or you can’t sleep or you have bloating or the knee pain and you can’t exercise these are all barriers so I’m gonna show you how to fix all these things so you can actually take your results way way higher than you would ever dream possible case studies from real people just like you you can learn from these people then we have the advanced techniques which you’ll get access to after the 30 days it’s like 31 days so you can get a refund before that that’s not a problem you won’t get access to the advanced techniques the advanced techniques go more into the body type let’s say you’re more of a thyroid body type or a dream about a type or delivery body type there’s certain additional events things you can do to take your results even further and that’s all I’m gonna say about that I’m gonna leave that as a mystery and then there’s some additional bonus things that I don’t even tell you about that are really cool charts and things like that okay so I just want to personally thank you for spending the time making it this far I appreciate your attention I hope your awareness now is to the point where you see where the problem is and what you need to focus on what you need to do I wish you the best of success and I cannot wait to read your personal success story thank you
