JOIN ME – each week I lead patients on a fast while continuing the ketogenic diet the rest of the week. #fastinganywayyoucan
TOPIC FOR TONIGHT: Why Check Blood Sugars. FORACARE: http://bit.ly/2QKGmKG
– Why should you check blood sugars?
– Fasting morning blood sugars are important but they do NOT show the whole picture. Learn what you NEED to know.
– DANGER!!! Up to 75% of diabetics are NOT being diagnosed for over 10 years.
– Damage caused by diabetes.
– Find out what hairy toes tell you about your health!
– The Glucose Ketone Index (GKI) explained. Learn the ratio you want to hit for your health goals; weight loss, autophagy, cancer.
WHY DO WE FAST: AUTOPHAGY
-Improve the way your body listens to insulin
-Clean out more pockets of stored sugar in your liver and muscle cells (glycogen.)
-Surge hormones like growth hormone
BE SURE YOU:
1) Check your blood sugars.
2) Be in ketosis for 2-4 weeks before you fast
3) Have a reason for fasting … [that does not mean weight loss.. a real purpose]
Every time I feel like giving up, I pray or meditate on the reason why I am fasting. I never make it to 72 hours unless I have a really good reason for fasting. My best fasts happen when I am focusing on a patient & their journey.
The GKI [Glucose Ketone Index] ratio explained.
Glucose divided by 18 : Ketones
DR BOZ RATIO: GLUCOSE DIVIDED BY KETONES
This math was easier for my mom to do … and for my patients.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 80 = weight loss zone. Some autophagy may be happening.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 40 = benefit with all the deep tissue/organ inflammation and auto-immune problems. (Leaky gut, brain fog, Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s) More autophagy should be happening.
Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 20 = Cancer & extreme health issues. . This was my mom’s category. This zone is really hard. No playing around. Make sure your doctor is watching you closely. Almost all are likely to have autophagy at this stage.
Thanks for tuning into my channel.
The two most common questions I get …
1) “Doc, what BLOOD METER do you recommend?”
ANSWER: FORACARE: http://bit.ly/2QKGmKG
For years my diabetics told me this system was great. I tried several others before I bought this one. I can’t count the number of times I have tested my blood only to get an ERROR message from the strip. Grrr. I hate that. FORACARE gets my vote because it is accurate and takes only ONE test strip to get the results. YES!!
2) “Doc, which Ketones-In-A-Can (aka exogenous ketones, BHB) do you recommend?”
EXOGENOUS KETONES BHB: Dr Boz BHB: (affiliate link) https://amzn.to/2HScnvu
I don’t recommend these in everyone. I have times this is a great solution for my patients that are very overweight and trying to get used to burning ketones for fuel. All keto supplements should have magnesium in them. This one does.
I own this Dr Boz brand and the Dr Boz supplements.
