New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with How Many Grams of Protein on a Keto & Intermittent Fasting Plan??
hey guys I recently had a question from several people that wanted to know how many grams of protein do I need to consume in my diet if I’m on a ketogenic and in a manifesting program okay apparently when I told them the ounces that wasn’t good enough they want to know in grams so before I get into that let me just kind of explain something if there’s glucose or sugar in the diet the body will always go for that first and that’s why we want to keep the carbs low between 20 and 50 grams or less okay so if we keep the carbs low then the body will then burn muscle protein unless you’re eating enough protein okay so we want to have a moderate amount of protein because if we don’t have enough protein our body will start using your own muscle even before the fat so we need certain amounts of protein so I’m telling people you need between three and six ounces now what does it come out to well at the very minimum you need point three six grams 2.7 grams per your body weight in pounds now I’m not giving you the kilograms you can do the conversions talking about pounds okay so I’m 180 pounds okay so it multiply 0.33 and I get roughly about 65 it might be sixty four point eight or something like that okay so that’s how many grams of protein I need for the whole day okay minimally so 0.7 times 180 equals 126 grams of protein for the whole day okay now that’s if I’m doing like three meals so if I divide this by three each meal would be on the low end it’d be about 21 grams per meal of protein if I’m going in the high end let’s see I’m an athlete I’m younger a lot of physical activity I’ll need a little more protein I’m stressed I need more protein so we divide this by three it comes out to 42 grams anything more than this though is going to be a problem on the liver and kidney it can actually strain the kidneys in the liver and it could create kidney stones and it can also create more fat on your body because it’s gonna convert to sugar so we need some but we don’t need too much so this is the range right here if you wanted to know now when calculating this there’s a lot of confusion because people go online and they look up let’s say you’re gonna look up beef right the nutritional facts for beef four ounces is 113 grams so right there you’re gonna go back to here it’s gonna be like wait a second 113 grams for 4 ounces that doesn’t make sense but realize when you look this up you’re not going to use total grams for the beef because that beef is made up of different things we want the protein grams not the total grams so for beef for 4 ounces we have about 26 grams we have about 8 grams of fat and the rest water like 80 grams of water will make up the total of 113 and collagen and some other things okay so we’re really going to only use the protein so that’s what that’s what we’re talking about and if you’re looking at fish chicken lamb eggs they’re all gonna vary in the amount of protein per unit of volume okay or weight so don’t worry I’ll have a calculator I’m almost done with this macro calculator for you so you can go in there and punch new numbers and it does all the calculations for you you know then you don’t have to worry about anything so I’m working on that in fact I was working then all day today from five o’clock in the morning until I’m here which is about five o’clock okay so let’s say we get our protein in correctly and we’re doing great on that and then you do in a minute fasting so now you’re going to go to two meals and then one meal well you’re not going to need the quantity quantity of protein is going to go down down down because your body’s going to recycle protein and you’re going to not need the quantity of protein because the body is stimulating growth hormone that’s one thing and that’s going to cause a protection of your muscle protein from being broken down all right so now if you handle this you’re not going to lose any muscle so the body will then have no choice but to burn its fat reserve okay and when it burns the fat you can have ketones now in the beginning you’re gonna have to consume more fat as if you’re insulin resistant they’re also going to be really really hungry it’s going to be really hard to go from one meal to the next however when you start becoming adapted the need for fat will go down because the goal is to get your bodies to start eating your own stored fat not necessarily just to rely on the dietary fat okay so in this case maybe in the beginning you’re adding keto bombs and you’re adding extra fat and this and that bulletproof coffee but then as you get into it maybe you won’t need that maybe you could just get the fat from the protein that you consume I just found for example I bought from us wellness meets online I found hamburger that is fifty five percent that’s forty five percent fat incredible I’ve never seen anything like it so I ordered a bunch of it and so that’s what I’m going to consume tonight so you would need to add any more fat that’s enough fat of course a lot of it will be you know baked off when I cook it but the point is that if you just focus on the fat in the whole food you probably won’t need to add very much unless you’re trying to maintain your weight in which case you want to add more fat so that way your body will maintain and maybe you can gain a little bit of weight okay all right thanks for watching hi guys thanks so much for watching press this little button down here and says subscribe and I will make sure that I won’t send more than five to ten videos a day okay no I’m just kidding
