New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Insulin, Insulin Resistance & Belly Fat: SIMPLIFIED?
hi guys listen I wanted to create a video to show you what happens inside your body in relationship to insulin fat-burning the effects that it can create and give you a real inside demonstration of what it looks like so we’re gonna do some animation through here okay let’s first start out with this one image right here which we have the pancreas right here and the pancreas makes certain hormones one hormone it makes is called insulin and the location of the pancreas is underneath the left ribcage but it extends over to the right a little bit and it it’s triggered by sugar okay so when you eat a carbohydrate rich meal and the faster that it turns into sugar like certain things will turn the sugar fast other things are slow that’s called like a glycemic index like celery would turn into sugar very slowly candy it would be very fast so as soon as the sugar spikes in the blood and it goes above a certain level it triggers the pancreas to make insulin so now we have this insulin that connects into the cell so insulin actually will remove the sugar out of the blood to bring the sugar down okay and what it does is it feeds the cell one of the functions that it feeds the cell so it’s kind of like a little chef that it feeds the cell it’s food okay it’s fuel so you can look at insulin also as a key that opens a door allowing the cell to absorb glucose okay so as glucose goes inside the cell now we have a situation where the cell is filled with glucose and it’s being fed now there’s a signal that then we’ll go from the cell back up to the pancreas until the pancreas to turn off because it’s been fed so we have this on/off mechanism it’s called a feedback loop and all the hormones have this feedback loop where the the hormones is sent across a distance it does its function and then it’s once it’s done it sends a signal back letting you know the gland note it did its job as an acknowledgment so can turn off if this signal is off in any way and the pancreas will continue to communicate and send more hormone when you really might not need it okay so we know number one insulin feeds to the cell fuel okay then it helps you store sugar so here’s insulin it comes in your takes the sugar out feeds the cell number two it actually stores sugar in the mainly in the liver but some in the muscle as well and some of the kidneys some of the brain and some in the white blood cell but mainly in the liver and kidney that’s where the storage happens and the body stores sugar as something called glycogen that’s the name of it it’s glycogen is a series of glucose molecules strung together in a chain so there’s two main types of fuel stores in the body we have the glycogen reserve and then we have the fat reserve okay the glycogen reserve which is the sugar reserve is roughly only 1,700 calories it’s very very tiny vs. 70,000 calories on a not all beasts average person so we have 70,000 calories for fat versus only 1,700 that’s 1,700 for sugar reserves okay so insulin helps in the absorption of fuel in the cell it helps in the sugar storage which is called glycogen reserve and number three it converts excess sugar and carbohydrates into fat okay so fat comes from the excess carbohydrates so as soon as the blood sugars go to high it convert insulin converts it to fat in the liver so it’s dumping fat into the liver and dumping fat into the body specifically in the belly area this is the storage around the liver and starts spilling off into a belly a fat belly that’s where it’s coming from so in this section I’m going to talk about what is excess sugar in the blood normal blood sugar is between eighty and a hundred okay milliliters per deciliter this basically means you have one teaspoon of sugar per all of your blood an average person it’s roughly one and one-third gallons of blood that’s normal an average American consumes 31 teaspoons of sugar so you can imagine how much sugar that is in your body your insulin needs to deal with it so it has to get this toxic sugar out protect the cells and dump it into the reserve which is your belly so it’s converting the excess sugar to belly fat and that’s how it works okay so the next thing that happens when you have too much sugar over a long period of time and too much sustained insulin we developed something called insulin resistance where the receptor that’s supposed to receive insulin becomes blocked okay now what happens is now the glucose the sugar can’t get into the cell because the key is not working to allow the cell to be fed the fuel that it needs okay so because there’s no signals inside the cell that the glucose is getting in there there’s no feedback loop to the pancreas to turn it off so we have an incomplete communication it’s like someone’s talking so much but no one’s listening so we have the situation where no off switch the body compensates to drive more insulin to try to connect with this little key to try to drive the key in there so a person with insulin resistance has five to seven times more insulin than a normal person this is pre-diabetes okay so what happens is all this excess insulin goes throughout the body but it doesn’t it’s not becoming effective in other words it’s not bringing the sugars down it’s not beating the cells what it’s doing its going in storage is belly fat so we’re dumping more and more insulin that’s converting this sugar into fat in the belly and making a fatty liver other symptoms there’s four main big symptoms with insulin resistance your fatigue especially after you eat like eat lunch you want to take a nap number two you have cravings for sugar and carbohydrates number three you have excessive urination at night because wherever the excess insulin is going fluid is following it so you’re actually the sometimes you have glucose coming through the urine you’re going to be peeing more and also even have a lot of brain fog memory issues you have inflammation there’s a whole list of symptoms that you can have so there’s several other purposes of insulin that go beyond just glucose going in the cell number one protein goes in the cell with the help of insulin without insulin you can’t absorb protein amino acids in the cell that’s why diabetics have loss of muscle collagen muscle weakness they can’t build muscle they have joint issues disk issues a lot of protein issues and potassium the major mineral or electrolyte which is potassium will not go on the cell as well thereby having fatigue high sodium that’s going to get high pulse rate high blood pressure arrhythmias heart is arrhythmias skip heartbeat palpitations edema swelling in your feet poor sleep because potassium helps relax your body muscle cramps constipation gout kidney stones okay so insulin is needed for other things as well so if you wanted a really good reference book I just came out with my new book called a new body type guide it’s actually major updates from the last book that I had which is the 7 principles of fat burning there’s more strategies more effective results it’s easier to implement ok so you’re taking additional strategies of healthy ketosis in a minute fasting and the body types all together so it’s really about how to get healthy to the core in long term so you can do something with The Hunger without the cravings and be very very successful there’s 379 pages over a hundred and fifty-six graphic illustrations so when I read a book the first thing I look at it doesn’t have any pictures okay if it doesn’t okay next so I love the visuals full glossary full index full FAQ full resource is chapter and I also add it in there’s something called a conscious eating card you can cut it out in the back so let’s say for example you mess up it tells you what to do or if you’re tempted you can read this card and it’ll probably discourage you from doing it alright so I’m doing an introductory special on the book if you get this book you’ll get an additional bonus okay this is the companion guide it’s a little booklet called it’s not lose weight to get healthy it’s get healthy to lose the weight very powerful principle but this book is a summary of the key points in this book with special attention to a lot of pictures on what to eat giving examples of the meals of what they look like to have the percentages of fat carbohydrates and protein so you you can dive right in read this book probably in an hour and a half and then fill in all the details with this book alright I put a link down below thanks for watching
