Overcoming Keto Plateau After 6-8 Weeks

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Overcoming Keto Plateau After 6-8 Weeks?

hi guys today we’re gonna talk about key tell Platt tell okay you get on the ketogenic plan and you lose all this weight initially maybe like the first month for six weeks but then things start slowing down what’s happening this is very frustrating it may cause you to want to quit or stop but you may not because of all the other benefits you might be looking better feeling better in your clothes and you might have no cravings no hunger and have more energy okay but let’s just talk about plateau in general you know about The Biggest Loser right these people workout basically eight hours a day they reduce the calories they eventually lose the weight do they gain the way back yes pretty much all of them gain the way back why because of this one simple fact losing weight is not a normal thing for the body it’s anti is survival I mean just think about what fat is fat is stored energy in fact your body doesn’t even care what you look like it just wants to store the energy and hold it you know this is true because it’s much easier to gain weight than it is to lose weight alright so now when you go on a diet and I’m talking about a low calorie diet your metabolism will adjust and it will start slowing down it will adapt and you will eventually create what’s called a set point which is a weight that it’s almost impossible to bust through so let’s say for example you’re on the program and you get to let’s say 180 or 170 and you just can’t seem to get below that okay you’re just like no matter what you do so what really stops you from busting through that Plateau that set point that weight that your body is very comfortable at is high levels of insulin okay so too much insulin won’t counter your ability to burn fat because it prevents fat burning okay and usually what comes along with that is insulin resistance so the combination of insulin resistance which the majority of the population has and excessive insulin they goes both go hand-in-hand is what’s behind this set point okay all right the big question is does keto slow your metabolism like other diets and the answer is this not if you’re adding intermittent fasting okay now why do I say that and by the way what’s the difference between intermittent fasting and a low calorie diet some people will say they’re the same thing because you are consuming less calories if you’re not eating so frequent right well there’s a huge difference and it boils down to this one reference right here in guidance physiology okay on page 930 and we’re talking about other factors that stimulate insulin okay it says gastrointestinal hormones there’s a hormone called GI P now what does that mean it means that when you eat when you eat frequently you trigger insulin so key tell is low carb and that’s gonna lower insulin in a min fasting is less frequent eating less GIP hormone less insulin okay so both these actions keto low-carb intermón fasting less frequent eating will lower insulin and improve this set point this plateau where as low calories doesn’t focus on frequency of eating in fact when you’re in a low calorie diet you have to eat frequent meals and snacks you’re probably doing five to six meals small meals well try this experiment at home go ahead and fast and then go ahead and eat just a little bit of protein let’s say two strips of bacon and I’ve done this before you eat just a little bit of protein I will guarantee within an hour you are gonna be starving okay why because of this you’re eating and every time you eat you spike insulin almost regardless of what you eat anything so it’ll spike insulin the blood Sugar’s will be plummeted and then you will be hungry so with low calorie diets you are constantly hungry okay and you have more insulin production within a minute fasting despite having the same amount of calories okay as a low calorie diet you have less insulin spike because you’re not eating so frequently but the cool thing is you’re not hungry why because when you lower insulin you finally get to tap in your fat reserve now there’s a great analogy is that someone added to one of my comments in the YouTube channel when you’re doing the low calorie diet and you’re dependent on sugar fuel you’re basically living paycheck to paycheck because you’re dependent on the sugar okay you’re not tapping into the fat you tap into fat you have to lower the insulin when you’re doing keto and I F you’re tapping into your reserve fuel the fat this is your wise investments that build up a reserve over time that give you interest now with this model you may have a huge reserve in the bank you might have a million dollars in the bank but you’re not able to tap into it because insulin is like the lock that holds it there alright so in order to tap into this fat you need to lower insulin and that’s gonna help lower your setpoint now the main reason why you get a plateau on keto mainly has to do with your past dieting okay you may remember when the first time you died it worked second time maybe worked third time it didn’t work is great for time it’s not working that great and then to the point where now it doesn’t work at all all that means is you’ve generated so much insulin in your body and you do so much instant resistance that’s what’s really behind this problem so when you do keto and you definitely need to add if’ to it and that’s the secret to speed this up realize that the barrier is the high insulin and you need to actually do a little bit lower carb with the keto and you need to decrease the frequency of eating and get a little bit stricter with your intimate of fasting now a lot of you based on survey are doing a six-hour window of eating in an 18 hour fast okay but you’re still doing two meals which is fine but if you plateaued and you want to speed things up okay what you want to do is you want to go down to one meal a day okay it’s called Oh mad what that will do that will speed things up because you’re gonna really drop insulin down and the other tip you want to do is when you do keto start to lower your carbs even below 20 grams maybe down to even 10 grams or even lower okay and there’s one more thing that you want to do that I talked about in other videos and I’ll put the link down below it’s called prolonged fasting you can do it periodically once a week do once a month so I put a link down below on that video specifically and I also put a link down below of how I would recommend doing in a minute fasting so check it out bust through the plateau through lowering your insulin improving insulin resistance thanks for watching so I want to thank you for being here and watching my videos if you haven’t already subscribed go ahead and do so so you can stay informed of future

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about keto plateau. This is when you get into the ketogenic diet plan and you lose a lot of weight initially for the first few months, then weight loss starts slowing down. Losing weight is not a normal thing or the body, it is “anti-survival”.
When you go in a low-calorie diet, your metabolism will adjust and will start slowing down, it will adapt and you eventually create what is called a set point, a weight that is almost impossible to bust through.

High levels of insulin will counter the ability to burn fat because it prevents fat burning. And insulin resistance also comes with high levels of insulin.

Does Keto Slow the Metabolism?
No, if you are adding intermittent fasting.

Difference between Intermittent Fasting and Low-Calorie Diet
With low-calorie diets, you are constantly hungry and you have more insulin production. While with intermittent fasting, despite having the same amount of calories, you will have less insulin spike because you are not eating so frequently but the thing is, you are not hungry because when you lower insulin you will tap into your fat reserves.
