More specifically, you want help with Fasting-Eating Hormone Cycle Explained?

hey guys I’m back and today we’re going to talk about the fasting eating cycle in a little more detail but I’m going to try to make it as simple as possible it’s actually very interesting okay so over here we have the Emeka nism that occurs when we’re eating okay over here we have what happens when we are fasting when we’re not eating so the cell needs to be fed so when you’re eating insulin is involved to feed the cell so what it’s doing it’s taking the excess glucose out of the blood and it’s feeding the cell now if you’re consuming a lot of carbs which most people do it’ll then take some of that sugar and it converts into storage sugar called glycogen but we don’t have a lot of glycogen storage we have like a limit we could only store like 2,000 calories anything more goes to fat and cholesterol we have an unlimited capacity to store fat so this is where most people end up right down here okay so now when we’re not eating and we’re fasting there’s another hormone involved called insulin-like growth factor so insulin like growth factor is very similar to insulin in that it does also feed the cell glucose but the glucose is not coming from the diet it’s coming from the stored glucose as glycogen from your liver and from your muscle so basically your cell always gets fed one way or the other either from the food or from the storage okay but we don’t have a lot of glycogen so did you fast a little bit longer it’ll start tapping into the fat and release that and feed the cell so we have this nice little balance going back and forth so IGF is under complete control of the growth hormone which is produced by the pituitary and it works through the liver and a lot of the functions of IGF are the same as growth hormone so this is also involved in releasing fuel to the cell as well but I’m not going to get into that much detail so if we have enough growth hormone we have enough IGF and everything is cool and by the way our bodies have about a hundred times in quantity in volume this hormone to insulin what does that mean that means that our bodies were designed to not eat way more than we eat and the problem that we’re running into right now is people eat too frequently and they eat too many carbs now recently I did a an interview with a guy that was on The Biggest Loser he was I think 325 pounds he lost I think 114 pounds in three months and then he gained it all back he found some videos that I did he’d liked the concept of healthy ketosis in a minute fasting he then proceeded to lose 90 pounds okay so he did very very well but what was fascinating about his interview which I’m gonna put the link down below was what he ate during the Biggest Loser versus my recommendations as far as eating and they were definitely different because I recommended no fruit potatoes but I think the biggest difference is that he started doing fasting because when he was on The Biggest Loser he was like eating every hour and then he was snacking at night so you’re just like constantly raising insulin over and over because every time you eat you spike insulin so our bodies were designed to fast a lot longer than we eat and when we do that we all sorts of health problems clear up when you combine frequent eating with a chronic carbohydrate consumption with low potassium you get massive problems with huge spike in insulin so as we increase insulin and we become insulin dominant we start not needing to use this anymore so we actually suppress IGF we suppress growth hormone now if we compound that with age and liver damage because this will eventually create a fatty liver and inflammation and eventually cirrhosis of the liver if we compound that then we actually get even a lesser amount of growth hormone and a lesser amount of IGF okay so now let me just show you what happens we have all this carbohydrate and all this insulin being produced the body will start to protect itself so it develops insulin resistant okay so now what happens is we need more and more insulin to create the same effect so what happens is when we have more insulin we just said we still have normal blood sugars okay because we have more insulin to lower them so when you get checked like oh you’re fine you don’t have diabetes but they never check for insulin so give it more time and then the pancreas starts getting exhausted now we get to the point where this mechanism is overwhelmed so now what happens is the blood sugars start going higher and higher and higher and that’s what we call diabetes but before that you may have a spike in insulin and end up with hypoglycemia because there’s too much insulin that’s pushing the blood sugar down well IGF comes in there to protect you against that so we have a combination of growth hormone igf-1 go down to low but if we have liver damage because of these factors right here we no longer have the protective effect against the low blood sugars and so you have other hormones that are countering insulin as well and that would be cortisol okay that’s the stress hormone that’s one of them and adrenaline so this basically would just turn your muscles into sugar so that’s why you’ll start seeing people with a loss of muscles in their leg they get really kind of thin legs no butt and it’s all in the gut so there’s these three counter hormones that are working hard to keep the sugar high but depending on if you have a problem with the liver or your dreams you may have symptoms of hypoglycemia before you get hyperglycemia which is diabetes some people don’t have a problem with that so they go right from pre-diabetes to diabetes which is hyperglycemia high sugar and when you actually lose growth hormone you lose the protein sparing effect and you also have additional muscle loss just from that alone so the combination of high cortisol and loss of growth hormone equals loss of muscle mass you see this a lot in menopause growth hormone also stimulates cartilage growth so you see a lot of people as they get older they lose their joints as well because of this all right so what are we gonna do to solve this number one we don’t want to eat so frequently we want to do in a minute fasting that’s going to take the stress off the pancreas and you’ll instantly start improving your liver you’ll start increasing growth hormone we want to add exercise that’s gonna also burn off the excess glucose and get you into fat-burning a lot faster as far as what to eat we want to go a low carb we want to go high potassium I put the link down below with exactly what I’m gonna recommend is called healthy ketosis alright guys thanks for watching and I will see in the next video so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily

In this video, Dr. Berg discussed about the fasting-eating cycle. When you are eating, insulin is involved to feed the cells by taking the excess glucose out of the blood. Consuming a lot of carbs, will take some of the sugar and converts it to the stored sugar called glycogen. When you are fasting, there is another hormone involved called Insulin-Like Growth Factor or IGG-1, which is very similar to the insulin and it does also feed the cell glucose. But the glucose is not coming from the diet, it is coming from the stored glucose as glycogen from the liver and the muscle.

The body doesn’t have the a lot of glycogen, so fasting a little bit longer, it will start taping into the fat, releasing that and feet the cell. Growth hormone is what controls the Insulin-Like Growth Factor or IGG-1. IGF is in the complete control of the growth hormone which is produced by the pituitary and works with the liver. Our body has 100x quantity in volume of IGF to insulin which means our body is designed to not eat way more than we eat.
