all right so we want to talk about headaches in relationship to doing Kido and intermittent fasting okay this is really a hypoglycemic type issue it’s a low blood sugar situation your selves have not yet adapted to running on ketones you’re still running on glucose and so if you implement in a minute fasting and you try to go for a period of time it drops the sugar okay now the problem is that low blood Sugar’s add a tremendous amount of stress to the brain the central nervous system and the nerves overall so it’s a tremendous amount of stress in fact the brain is the first organ to be affected by low blood sugars okay because they depend on glucose now there is an alternative fuel called ketones but if you don’t know how to do it you’re gonna run on glucose and if you implement in fasting you’re gonna crash and burn okay now headaches are a very common symptom of hypoglycemia but to really know if your headaches are connected to low blood sugars all you have to do as soon as you start getting this headache is to consume some protein because that should instantly improve your headaches if it doesn’t then it could be another source all right and there’s other videos that I have that explain that I’ll put a link down below but the solution to the headaches is to realize that it’s a blood sugar thing and go into this more gradually so for example if you’re doing this at twice a day you’re eating twice a day and you’re getting headaches well add another meal because you’re not ready to go to two meals a day okay if you’re doing three meals a day maybe you need to really add a little more protein but again here’s the problem because medically speaking what they’ll do for hypoglycemia is they will tell you to add more snacks like five six meals a day which is a big mistake even though you’ll feel better you’ll never correct the problem you might go wow I had some fruit I had some protein I feel better but if you’re not working towards running your body and ketones you’re still going to have the blood sugar situation because as soon as you eat you’re going to spike the insulin it’s going to come down primarily because it’s the frequency of eating that keeps the insulin very high and if you’re trying to fix this problem you want to work towards going longer longer without snacking okay so snacking is just a very quick fix it’s a temporary situation but we want to go longer without eating in general and the other bad advice would be to add some candy I’ll show you this right here mercs manual this is a medical book under hypoglycemia first of all it says the sign and symptoms headaches are a big symptom of hypoglycemia now in this next page they’re talking about hypoglycemia and diabetes which is a little different than this but I wanted to mention what they recommend diabetic patients taking insulin should always carry sugar lumps or candy with them and the patients family and friends should instruct in recognizing these symptoms of hypoglycemia and in giving an emergency treatment mentioned above now I do understand that if it’s an emergency low blood sugar situation to get it up pretty fast but there’s no real questioning on what’s gonna correct this problem how do we stop getting in this situation because if you’re taking a certain amount of insulin and you’re ending them with low blood sugars then why don’t we take less insulin so it doesn’t drop so far okay I’m gonna do a whole video on that but the point is that if you get headaches when you do it in a minute fasting or keto program realize that it’s a usually a blood sugar situation you haven’t adapted yet and yes if you snack or eat protein you’ll feel better but you have to really get the big picture and realize that unless you adapt your body to ketones you’ll never fix this issue alright thanks for watching hey before you go definitely sign up for my free keto course I put a link down below it’s on messenger in Facebook but it will give you all the basics it’s very quick it’s like three or four videos and it’s free check it out

Dr. Berg talks about getting headaches on a keto (ketogenic diet) and intermittent fasting. This is a hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) situation, your cells have not yet adapted to running on ketones. The brain is the first organ affected by low blood sugars because it depends on glucose.
We are going to talk about headaches in a relationship to doing Keto and Intermittent Fasting. This is really a hypoglycemic type of issue or the low blood sugar situation, your cells have not yet adapted to running on ketones, and you’re still running on glucose. If you implement intermittent fasting and you try to go in a long period of time, it drops the sugar. The problem is that low blood sugars add a tremendous amount of stress to the brain, central nervous system and the nerves overall. In fact, the brain is the first organ to be affected by low blood sugars because they depend on glucose. There is an alternative fuel called ketones but if you don’t know how to do it you are going to run in glucose and if you implement intermittent fasting, you are gonna crash and burn. Headaches are very common symptoms of hypoglycemia but to really know if your headaches are really connected to blood sugars, all you have to do as soon as you start getting headaches is to start to consume some protein because that should instantly improve your headaches and if it doesn’t then it could be another source. The solution to the headaches is to realize that it is a blood sugar thing and go into this more gradually. For example you are going this and eating twice a day and you are getting headaches, add another meal because you are not ready to go to 2 meals a day. If you are doing 3 meals a day maybe you might really need to add more protein. But again here’s the problem, medically speaking what they’ll do to hypoglycemia is they tell you to add more snacks like 5 to 6 meals a day which is a big mistake even though you’ll feel better, you’ll never correct the problem. You might go “wow, I had some fruit, protein, and I feel better” but if you are not working towards running your body on ketones you are still going to have the blood sugar situation because as soon as you eat, you are going to spike the insulin, it is gonna come down. Primarily because it is the frequency of eating that keeps the insulin very high and if you are trying to fix this problem, you are going to work towards going longer and longer without snacking. Snacking is just very quick fix, it is a temporary situation but we want to go longer without eating in general. The other bad advice would be to add some candy.
