hi guys in this video we’re gonna talk about if it’s safe for a menopausal woman with adrenal fatigue to do keto and in a minute fasting okay because there’s some confusion about this I don’t know there’s things floating out there that say that oh it’s dangerous don’t don’t do keto or in a fasting if your adrenals are stressed especially if you’re going through menopause but it’s the exact thing you need to do but you need to do it correctly but I think the problem is that when you get into your 40s and 50s or even 60s the adrenal gland takes over and backs up the ovaries so you actually put more stress on the adrenal gland okay so what happens it has a harder time countering this drop in blood sugar as you go longer between meals and you do in a minute fasting so the blood sugars end up not being able to rebound like you should so you feel dizzy and weak and then all of a sudden you eat and you feel better and you’re like wow oh I need to be eating more frequently no it just means that we need to strengthen the adrenals and tweak some things because here’s the main issue with adrenal fatigue you’re gonna have higher levels of cortisol okay cortisol another name for cortisol is called a glucocorticoid that’s a glucose releasing hormone so when cortisol is high you’re going to be released more glucose which is sugar and increase more insulin so adrenal problems in general have higher levels of insulin okay well we’re trying to fix that because the insulin that’s going to create the insulin resistance and keep people from losing weight so if you’re trying to lose weight and you’re menopausal and you’re stuck you need to do keto in a minute fasting but you want to do it more gradually okay very gradually three meals for a period of time so you can avoid snacking and then once you can avoid snacking start to push that breakfast further and further forward so eventually we had two meals a day and it might take months before you get to that point but just do it gradually here’s a couple things to remember you want to make sure you have enough potassium electrolytes b1 nutritional yeast I would even recommend maybe taking four tablespoons of nutritional yeast in a tablet form take more so you can really get your B vitamins because that will help you add more fat and more sea salt because the adrenals need those minerals I would also add some trace minerals because trace minerals plant means trace minerals contained zinc and chromium two minerals that are really important to help you transition faster because the goal is to get you to fully adapt to ketosis where you’re burning fat and everything is going fine your fuels fine and now you’re out of this whole blood sugar thing you’re not going to experience a little blood sugar anymore you’re gonna feel a lot better and it’s going to be the thing that finally helps you bust through that Plateau that happens when you’re menopausal and another common thing that I’m just gonna tell you right now you may find that you’re gonna lose weight and then Plateau you’re not gonna lose weight but that’s probably because you’re gaining more muscle and that muscle weighs heavier so you’re gonna be shrinking but not necessarily losing weight at certain points don’t worry about that just go by your size how your clothes fit you may need to also consume more protein okay so instead of six ounces do seven or even eight ounces of protein you may need that maybe not but the protein is necessary as you’re building the muscle as well omega-3 fats are going to be really important especially if you’re exercising or you have inflammation in your body and I would get that from krill krill is a really good source of omega-3 a lot of the fish oils go rancid unless you get a version cod liver oil which is hard to find it’s expensive but krill I think might be an easier option for you going the long walks as instead of high intensity exercise and just go at this very slowly and realize it’s going to take time but it is the thing you need to do to ultimately correct things and you’ll thank me down the road in this book I have a whole chapter on stress so this is kind of a new thing with weight loss you know people don’t look at stress or adrenals as a factor but that’s one of the big barriers to losing weight is if the cortisol is too high so I hope I have a whole chapter chapter 16 and how to help your adrenals and I’ll help how to do actually acupressure to pull stress out to really get into the delta-wave sleep and enhance your ability to get to your goal 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 if is it safe for menopausal women with adrenal fatigue to do ketosis and intermittent fasting. The answer is YES. The adrenals are normally supposed to help counter a drop in blood sugar and when you do intermittent fasting with adrenal issues, you could have a hard time because of the drop in blood sugars. The hormone called cortisol is what is called a glucocorticoid, which is a glucose regulating hormone. So the adrenals are definitely connected to blood sugars. Cortisol if too high can mobilize more sugar and even turn your body protein into sugar thus raising your insulin and even causes insulin resistance or diabetes. So in other words, if your cortisol is high, chances are you could also have high insulin. This means you need to do things to lower insulin – ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting!
Here are some tips: 1. Take electrolytes to increase potassium and other minerals 2. B vitamins (nutritional yeast) 3. Sea salt – the adrenals need more sodium, because they lose more. 4. Trace minerals, esp, chromium and zinc. 5. More protein 6. Omega 3 (Krill is great) 7. Take long walks 8. Go slow – go at this gradually and eventually you’ll be in full keto adaptation and no longer running only on glucose (avoid the blood sugar swings).
Hi guys, in this video we are going to talk about is it safe for a menopausal women with adrenal fatigue to do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. There are some confusion about this things are floating out there that says it is dangerous and don’t do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting if your adrenals are stressed especially if you are going through menopause but it is the exact thing that you need to do but you need to do it correctly. The problem is that when you get into your 40’s to 60’s, the adrenal gland takes over and backs up the ovary so you actually put more stress on the adrenal gland so what happens it has a hard time countering this drop in blood sugar as you go longer between three meals when you do intermittent fasting. The blood sugars are not able to rebound like you should so you feel dizzy and weak and all of the sudden you eat and feel better and then you think that you would need to eat more frequently, No. It just means that we need to strengthen the adrenals and tweaks some things because here is the main issue, with adrenal fatigue you are going to have higher levels of cortisol. Cortisol, another name for cortisol is called glucocorticoid – that is a glucose releasing hormones. When cortisol is high, you are going to release more glucose which is more sugar and increase more insulin. Adrenal problems in general have higher problems in insulin and we are trying to fix that because the insulin is going to create the insulin resistance and keep people from losing weight. So if you are trying to lose weight and you are menopausal and stuck, you need to do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting but you want to do it more gradually.
