so this idea might just be crazy enough to work I’m proposing a radical shift in how we look at fats and how we look at food and when you hear me out on this it’s all gonna make perfect sense I want to explain how we should start looking at fats a little bit different and how we should start looking at fats similar to how we look at carbohydrates in terms of the speed in which they digest so you’ve heard of the glycemic index or glycemic load with carbohydrates before right carbs that trigger a higher blood sugar and carbs that trigger a lower blood sugar that’s more sustained over a period of time well believe it or not fats are the same way they’re molecularly set up with carbon chains so if we understand how fats work and how they digest we can truly comprehend that fats could be treated in a very similar way to carbohydrates in terms of the speed in which they give us energy particularly on a ketogenic diet hey you are tuned in to the Internet’s leading nutrition and performance Channel with everything that you need to optimize your life whether it be through keto intermittent fasting or just making the best nutritional choices so let’s go ahead and break down some science and hey if you haven’t already check out Haile calm so that you can check out all the gear that I’m always wearing in my videos all right so let’s get to some education here so the topic of this is different fat’s equal different speeds and the first thing that we truly have to know is what happens when we go through fat digestion and right now this just looks crazy but I promise it’s gonna make perfect sense so please just do me a solid and stick with me through the entirety of this video because at the end of it you’re gonna have a big aha moment and everything’s gonna shift okay everything will start making sense as far as keto goes so first and foremost let’s take a big look at the small intestine the small intestine is where most of the absorption or the digestion occurs as far as fats go so these little black dots here indicate fats those are just big blocks of fats that we’ve consumed okay these little orange guys are called inteiro sites and they become very important and no matter what level you are or what education you are it doesn’t matter if you know what entero sites are you’re gonna be a cut above the rest in terms of comprehending overall food absorption in general so antara sites are cells that line our small intestine and it’s their job to absorb the food that we eat so I drew them like little pac-man’s here because that’s literally like what they are they’re just cells that line our small intestine that gobble up the food and they gobble up the food and break it down more to put it into our bloodstream well the thing is is that fats are a little bit different okay what we have to remember with fats is in essence fats are never fully digested okay or should I say they’re not digested and I say that with air quotes because yeah they’re kind of digested but not in the normal sense you see if you were to take something water-soluble like a starch or a carb you could mix that with water or any kind of fluid and it would be fine it would completely dissolve but with fats as you know when you try to mix oil with water it doesn’t mix okay it doesn’t mix no matter how hard we try we can shake it we can vigorously stir it we can put it in a Vitamix it’s still just going to be smaller droplets of fat we’re never fully digested we’re just emulsifying so basically all our bodies can do is packaged fats into smaller components so what happens here is we have something known as pancreatic lipase this is the first reaction that occurs with the fats okay so what happens is lipase comes in and it breaks them down into slightly smaller chunks so then we move into step two okay step two now we just zoomed in on this basically so here’s our fat okay and also known as a triglyceride it’s been broken down from pancreatic lipase from a solid polyunsaturated fat or whatever into a triglyceride or just a smaller droplet of fat slightly emulsified by the of course pancreatic lipase it also then we have bile salts so this is where bile in the gallbladder and the liver all come into play I bet you didn’t know that right this is exactly what happens so the bile creates these things called bile salts or the liver I’m sorry the liver creates bile and then the bile contains bile salts and it reacts with the fat and what it does is it chunks that up into smaller chunks of fat yeah even smaller so it’s like vigorously reacting with it to break it apart even smaller so now you’re left with a small little component here that’s fat and bile okay lots of fat a little bit of bile this this structure is known as a micelle okay for those of you that want to dive a little bit deeper it’s known as a micelle and basically what a micelle is ends up being the carrier for fat the carrier for fat into the body so then guess what now it’s small enough that pac-man the entero site can eat it so now we’re in a cool position so now we’re like yeah we took fat we made it smaller now our antero sites mr. pacman over here can can gobble it up which takes us right over to step 3 pac-man does some work pac-man doesn’t just eat it pac-man actually works his butt off and actually packages it up with different things okay so he packages it up with cholesterol does all kinds of things and literally takes it from fat to my cell and then turns it back into a triglyceride so he’s like a transformer maker he’s like the engineer behind transformers so he has literally taken this fat that’s been broken down and he reassembles it but adds it with other things so I mean this guy’s he’s awesome he’s pretty darn cool for what he does so now we have triglyceride + cholesterol we’ve consumed that back into a fat and what happens there is it leaves that enterocyte and it goes into the lymph this is where people are usually mistaken it doesn’t go into the blood so the fats don’t just go right into the blood okay so it’s not gonna just go to a bloodstream and immediately just be good to go it goes into our lymph system okay our lymph system guess what is moved and fluid by our movement so when we move when we exercise when we’re constantly moving we’re moving limp which means we’re mobilizing these fats start doing the math Kido works phenomenally if you’re just constantly moving a little bit so get up every 10 minutes and just move a little bit and get that lymph going and it makes a huge difference with Kido a huge difference okay then it’s the job of the lymph to travel around a little bit and it dumps it to the liver it dumps these into the liver and then the liver is where it goes through the cycle of creating our favorite ketones acetoacetate beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetone the three ketone bodies so if we’re in keto this process still occurs it just turns them into ketones rather than going through a whole different process where triglycerides are stored in different storage forms and yada but now the main emphasis of this video so now you understand how they’re broken down we understand that they’re two mole safai they’re not digested and it gives a whole new light to things but what about different fats what about things like MCTS that are said to absorb faster and what about long-chain fatty acid short chain fatty acids what all does that mean well it comes down to the carbon chains so when we talk about medium chain triglycerides we’re talking about medium length carbon chains when we’re talking about regular fats we’re talking about long-chain fatty acids carbon chains so I drew a simple example this is a carbon chain this was a fad it’s not really what fat looks like but for all intents and purposes it makes sense so what’s happening with a shorter chain fatty acid is it takes less time for the body to break these apart because there’s not as many bonds so therefore the fat breaks down a little bit faster okay so a shorter chain fatty acid or a medium chain fatty acid breaks down faster whereas a long chain fatty acid actually takes longer to break down why have we not looked at this before well simply because fats have been overshadowed by carbs and sugar for so many years and this isn’t anything like disparaging towards that world I’m not even going down that path I’m just saying that we focused on carbs and sugar for so long that I reckon that we haven’t even focused on what we can do with fats and yes I just said wreckin but if we can understand this process we can understand how we can layer different fats for different rates of absorption so if we need quick energy we can have a shorter chain fat like a medium chain triglyceride if we need longer bouts of energy on keto where we know we’re not going to eat for a while we want to eat the longer chain fats we want to eat the fish oils we want to eat the saturated fats they have a place you wouldn’t want to eat saturated fat right before your workout but you might want to consume MCT oil you see MCTS believe it or not skip a lot of this process it’s a whole different video and actually I’ll link out to that video we can actually add a card so you can watch it if you wanted to but that’s a whole complex situation where basically bypasses this process and goes straight into the mitochondria straight into the cell but we don’t always just want quick energy so this is a simple comparison to like consuming a high glycemic carb that’s why it’s a view than as glycaemic we look at carbs as glycemic whereas we’ll say okay I need quick energy so I’m gonna have this is hypothetical a Gatorade because I need the sugar okay so quick energy we have the Gatorade we get the energy we crash but we get the energy okay then on the contrary we think I need good sustained energy so I’m going to have some sweet potatoes that are gonna give me energy and carbs throughout the rest of the day because they’ll digest slower we think this way with carbs because it’s where our brains are but now as we have the fat movement in the keto movement we need to start thinking this way with our fats too and if we do we gain a huge upper hand in terms of how we can capitalize on different energy spikes and different lols in our energy and understand those on a ketogenic diet or just on a more fat dominant diet in general whether you’re on keto or you just fat adapted so this will break it down hopefully this made a lot of sense if you need more explanation on this go ahead and comment down below I’m trying to do videos where I actually answer comments and answer other questions that have come in to make it a little bit more clear so as always make sure you’re keeping it locked in here on my channel and I will see you in the next video

Fast Fat vs. Slow Fat | Optimize Energy | Fat Digestion Speeds- Thomas DeLauer explains why we should start to look at fats more like carbs, in terms of the speed in which they give us energy, particularly on Ketogenic diet. So, I’m proposing a radical shift in how we look at fats and how we look at food, and when you hear me out on this, it’s all going to make perfect sense. I want to explain how we should start looking at fats a little bit different and how we should start looking at fats similar to how we look at carbohydrates in terms of the speed in which they digest.

So, you’ve heard of the glycemic index or glycemic load with carbohydrates before, right? Carbs that trigger a higher blood sugar and carbs that trigger a lower blood sugar that’s more sustained over a period of time. Well, believe it or not, fats are the same way. They’re molecularly set up with carbon chains, so if we understand how fats work and how they digest, we can truly comprehend that fats could be treated in a very similar way to carbohydrates in terms of the speed in which they give us energy, particularly on a ketogenic diet. The topic of this is different fats equal different speeds, and the first thing that we truly have to know is what happens when we go through fat digestion, and right now this just looks crazy, but I promise it’s going to make perfect sense. So please just do me a solid and stick with me through the entirety of this video because at the end of it you’re going to have a big aha moment and everything’s going to shift. Okay? Everything will start making sense as far as keto goes.

So, first and foremost, let’s take a big look at the small intestine. The small intestine is where most of the absorption or the digestion occurs as far as fats go. So these little black dots here indicate fats. Those are just big blocks of fats that we’ve consumed. Okay? These little orange guys are called enterocytes, and they become very important, and no matter what level you are or what education you are, it doesn’t matter. If you know what enterocytes are, you’re going to be a cut above the rest in terms of comprehending overall food absorption in general.

Enterocytes are cells that line our small intestine, and it’s their job to absorb the food that we eat. So I drew them like little versions of Pac-Man here because that’s literally like what they are. They’re just cells that line our small intestine that gobble up the food, and they gobble up the food and break it down more to put it into our bloodstream. Well, the thing is, is that fats are a little bit different. Okay, what we have to remember with fats is, in essence, fats are never fully digested. Okay? Or should I say they’re not digested, and I say that with air quotes because, yeah, they’re kind of digested, but not in the normal sense. Okay, then it’s the job of the lymph to travel around a little bit, and it dumps it to the liver. It dumps these into the liver, and the liver is where it goes through the cycle of creating our favorite ketones, acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate, and acetone, the three ketone bodies. So, if we’re in keto, this process still occurs. It just turns them into ketones rather than going through a whole different process where triglycerides are stored in different storage farms and so on and so forth.

But now, the main emphasis of this video. So now you understand how they’re broken down and we understand that their emulsified, they’re not digested, and it gives a whole new light to things, but what about different fats? What about things like MCTs that are said to absorb faster? And what about long-chain fatty acids? Short-chain fatty acids? What all does that mean? Well, it comes down to the carbon chains. So when we talk about medium-chain triglycerides, we’re talking about medium-length carbon chains. When we’re talking about regular fats, we’re talking about long-chain fatty acids, carbon chains.

So, I drew a simple example. This is a carbon chain, this was a fat. That’s not really what a fat looks like, but for all intents and purposes, it makes sense. So what’s happening with a shorter chain fatty acid is it takes less time for the body to break these apart because there’s not as many bonds. So therefore, the fat breaks down a little bit faster. Okay? So a shorter chain fatty acid or a medium-chain fatty acid breaks down faster, whereas a long-chain fatty acid actually takes longer to break down.

This will break it down. Hopefully this made a lot of sense. If you need more explanation on this, go ahead and comment down below.
