New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Keto Macro – Insulin Spike Clarification?
hey guys in this video I want to answer another question from someone that wanted to know about how these macros are influenced by insulin there’s been just a lot of conflicting information confusion so I’m going to make it really really simple in this one little video ok so there’s there’s three main macros and macros are macronutrients carbs protein and fat micronutrients would be like vitamins and minerals things like that these are macronutrients okay there’s many different types of carbs we can take these carbs and list them on another scale called the glycemic index which basically is the carbs effect on raising blood Sugar’s and if something is high in fiber and low in not very sweet it’s going to be low on the list okay so you have you know vegetables are down here and then you have berries and then fruit and then you have grains and then refined sugars and processed foods up here so it really depends on the type of carbohydrates so the carbohydrates have the greatest effect on raising insolent especially if it’s refined sugars and starches okay so that’s that okay so now let’s talk about protein does protein increase insulin yes to certain degrees it really depends on a couple factors because if you’re consuming a moderate or a small amount of protein it’s not going to trigger insulin that much okay so the more volume a protein you consume in excess the more it’s going to trigger insulin like when you start going over eight ounces 9 ounces 10 ounces 12 ounces like you’d go to a restaurant and they bring you this steak this 16 or 22 ounce steak right you talk about a massive amount of insulin spike right but it’s also exaggerated when you add sugar or starch to that so if you’re running a baked potato dessert some sugar glaze barbecue sauce now really will enhance the insulin now if we add on top of that msg which you’d get in a fast food restaurant because a lot of these fast food restaurants they they taste really good because they add the flavor enhancer which is basically MSG monosodium glutamate and it dilates the tastebuds and it makes it taste real good but you really dramatically increase insulin so if you’re at a fast food place and you’re doing coke with ice cream with a burger with fries with high fructose corn syrup ketchup and a bun oh my gosh you’re having a massive insulin spike okay or you’re to Chinese restaurant and you’re doing the white rice with all the sugary coating sauce over the protein and the breaded meats massive spike in insulin because they too will also add msg usually hidden is modified food starch it’s the same thing okay so the excess amount a combo of what it’s combined with a and number three very lean low fat proteins have a greater effect over insulin there’s a something called the insulin index and the insulin index are all the foods ranked in order of how much insulin they will spike so the glycemic index is how fast the carbohydrate will spike blood Sugar’s insulin index are all the non carbohydrate foods that will increase insulin like protein and fat okay so the less fat in that protein the leaner it is the more effect it has on insulin so if you took for example whey protein powder you’re gonna have the most insulin spike because there’s like no fat in there so that’s interesting versus something fatty or like a an egg yolk or the whole egg for example you mix the protein with the fat it has a much lower effect on insulin than the low fat protein okay so that’s another point about that then we get to fat the fat has the least effect on insulin of these two okay and like a pure fat like butter for example probably is like a zero effect over insulin coconut oil things like that so the more fat something is the Lord is on the insulin index scale okay so you got that all right just one more point I want to bring up and that is that every time you anything of any significance I’m not talking about like you know drinking water or unsweetened tea or your vitamins things like that I’m not talking about coffee I’m talking about something that has some calories okay every time you do that you spike insulin and of course the more food that you eat the more insulin you’re going to spike so it doesn’t matter what it is if it’s a keto bomb that’s all fat with a little protein it’s still going to stimulate insulin not as much as a pure carbohydrate like sugar or bread something like that but it’s going to spike insulin to some degree so this is the added layer that I want to add to these when you eat anything you’re going to stimulate insulin so even though fat has the least effect on insulin just the fact that you eat it will trigger certain things in your stomach certain hormones that will trigger the insulin on a cascade of effects so the point is you want to cut down these okay low as possible moderate protein make sure it’s not too lean and you can consume fat at the meal but just don’t eat it as frequently so that’s called in a minute fasting so we basically reduce the frequency of eating and you’re going to be fine now as you do this and you consume two meals yes you’re going to consume some fat and you need some fat and we need some insulin we just don’t need the excess amount but over a period of time when you start squishing these together where you have let’s say a window of four hours okay and then you have 20 hours of fasting even though you’re going to stimulate insulin a little bit from some fats amount of protein even some healthy vegetables it’s not going to be a problem because it’s a minimal it’s not significant what really gets people is the routine snacking every one hour and a half even if it’s a small meal even if it’s so-called healthy protein even if it’s some fat in there you’re just constantly raising the insulin alright thanks for watching so we’ve been getting a lot of success stories but I don’t have your success story yet so click the link down below and upload you

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how the macros influence the insulin. Macros are macro-nutrients and there are 3 main macros; carbs, protein and fat. Glycemic index which basically is the carbs effect on raising blood sugars. The carbohydrate have the greatest effect on raising the insulin especially if it is refined sugar and starches. For the protein, the more excess you are going to consume the more it’ll spike the insulin. Insulin index are all the food ranked in order of how much insulin they will spike. Fat has the least effect on insulin. The more something is the lower it is in the insulin scale.
3 Types of Macro-Nutrients:
Hey guys! In this video, I wanna answer another question from someone that wanted to know about how this macros are influence insulin. There has been a lot of conflicting information, confusion so I wanna make it really simple in this 1 little video. There’s 3 main macros and the macros are macro-nutrients, carbs, protein and fat. Micronutrients would be like vitamins and minerals. There’s many type of carbs we can take these carbs and list them on another scale called the glycemic index which is basically the carbs effect on raising blood sugars. And if something is high in fiber and low in, not very sweet, it is gonna be low in the list. So you have vegetables are down here, and then you have berries, fruit, and then you have grains and refined sugars and processed foods are up in here. So it really depends on the type of carbohydrates. So the carbohydrates has the greatest effect on raising insulin especially if it’s refined sugars and starches. So that’s that. Now let’s talk about protein, does protein increase insulin? Yes to the certain degrees. It really depends on the couple factors because if you are consuming a moderate or a small amount of protein, it is not gonna trigger insulin that much. The more volume of protein you consume in excess, the more it is gonna trigger insulin. Like when you start going over 8 ounces, 9 ounces, 10 ounces, 12 ounces. Like you go to a restaurant and they bring you this steak, this 16 to 22 ounces steak you talk about the massive amount of insulin spike. But it is also exaggerated when you add sugar or starch to that, so if you are adding a baked potato, dessert, some sugar-glazed barbeque sauce that will really enhance the insulin. Now if we add on top of that MSG which you get in a fast food restaurant, because a lot of these fast food restaurants, they taste really good because they add this flavor enhancer which is basically MSG, monosodium glutamate and it dilates the taste buds and makes it taste really good but you really dramatically increase insulin. So if you are at the fast food place and you are doing coke and ice cream with burger, with fries, high fructose corn syrup and a bun. You are having a massive insulin spike. Or when you are in a Chinese restaurant and you are doing a white rice with all the sugary coating sauce.
