Fasting vs Keto: What’s Better?
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Fasting vs Keto: What’s Better??
I want to talk about the difference
between fasting and keto and which one is better I had this question come up
underneath one of the descriptions in my youtube videos so I’m going to just talk
about it so when we talk about keto we’re talking about low-carb now you
could do keto with zero carbs you could do that but most people have just a
small amount of carb they might have it between 20 and 50 grams but when you’re doing
fasting you’re bringing it down to no carbs because you’re not eating anything
okay so just for the fact that you have no carbs means that you’re gonna have
way more ketones than when you do actually do keto if you compare them
together now with keto you’re gonna be eating at a certain frequency and every
time you eat regardless of what you eat if there’s any any significance of
calories you’re gonna stimulate something called GIP okay that’s in the
small intestine that triggers a spike in insulin so even though you’re consuming
low carbohydrates you are stimulating insulin when you eat to a certain degree
but over here when you’re fasting there’s no GIP stimulated so you’re
gonna have a lot lower insulin and a lot more ketones that are generated all
right next thing is that when you actually are in ketones you will
stimulate certain genes that will help you in various ways but when you’re
fasting you actually enhance even additional genes that have to do with
survival and definitely have to do with anti-aging and longevity which will help
the brain become more focused and the heart to become more efficient and those
ketones that are generated for both will actually increase more oxygen in the
body and less co2 and ketones in general act as antioxidants now with fasting
you’re going to get much more autophagy and that is a condition where your body
is recycling old damaged proteins and turning them into new tissue now with
ketosis you are going to get some autophagy but not nearly as much so just
by looking at these two alone you can see that fasting has a much more powerful impact on your health than just ketosis now I
recommend you combine them together because they will have a compounded
effect the benefits will be enhanced because doing one will help the other
doing this will help that it’ll be easier to do because when you’re doing
fasting and then you eat if you actually eat keto less carbs your cravings
will be diminished you won’t be hungry as much but if you’re doing fasting and
doing higher carbohydrates you may find that number one it’s gonna bump you out
of ketosis for longer and you’re gonna be actually craving for more carbs so
that’s one little issue with that so eating keto makes fasting easier now
when you’re doing keto and not doing intermittent fasting you may not see the
benefits that you would especially with weight loss anti-aging cognitive
effects especially if you’re doing keto with keto snacks so you’re doing three
meals with a snack in the morning lunch and at night you’re probably going to
really diminish your results so if you’re trying to lose weight and you’re
doing keto but not IF and you have a slow metabolism you may find that you’re
gonna actually stall or plateau sooner or later so combining both of these will
definitely allow you to achieve your health goals much faster now if you’re
new to my channel and you’re not sure how to do it I’m gonna recommend doing
what’s called the healthy version of keto as well as intermittent fasting and
I put a link down below of exactly where to get that plan
so I wanted to say thank you so much for watching my videos I really really
appreciate it now if you have benefited from my
information or videos and want to share it with the world I would love to have
you write up a success story so click the link down below fill it out and let’s
let people know the benefits of healthy keto and intermittent fasting

In this video, we’re going to talk about the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. I want to explain a little bit about both of these and compare which one is better.
Fasting vs. Keto:
The keto diet:
When we’re talking about keto, we’re talking about low-carb. You could do keto with zero carbs, but most people do a small number of carbs (20-50g). Every time you eat, no matter what you eat, you will stimulate GIP. GIP triggers a spike in insulin.
With the keto diet, you will stimulate certain genes that will help you in various ways. With ketosis, you will have some autophagy, but not as much as you would with fasting.
With fasting, you’re not eating any carbs because you’re not eating anything at all. Because you’re not consuming any carbs, you will have a lot more ketones than if you were doing keto. When you’re fasting, you will not stimulate GIP.
When you’re fasting, you will enhance genes that have to do with survival, anti-aging, and longevity. This will also benefit the brain and heart. You’re also going to get much more autophagy.
Which is better?
Initially, when you compare fasting and keto, you can see that fasting has a more powerful impact on your health than just ketosis. However, I think it’s best to combine fasting and keto together. This way, the benefits will be enhanced. Doing one will actually help the other. Combing the two will make doing both keto and fasting easier. It will also help you reach your health and weight loss goals much faster.

When we look at fasting vs. keto, fasting may have more of an impact. But, I believe it’s good to combine fasting and keto for the best results.
