New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The 5 Things You Must Know About Ketosis?
so today we’re gonna talk about five things you must know about ketosis and I’m talking about healthy ketosis okay the first thing you need to know is the principle of get healthy to lose weight and not lose weight to get healthy so there’s a version of ketosis which is used on children way back 100 years ago and to actually handle epilepsy okay I don’t really consider that a healthy version of ketosis for the average person to do because they’re they’re not emphasizing the quality of those macros okay so we want to use higher quality ingredients and we want to focus on getting healthy first now what does this actually mean the great majority population has too much insulin excessive amounts of insulin is behind most chronic health problems heart problems strokes definitely diabetes inflammatory conditions cognitive deficiencies I think mood disorders as well 65% of the population is either pre-diabetic or diabetic so right there they have too much insulin okay so getting healthy is normalizing insulin we don’t need zero insulin we just need normal insulin okay so that’s really really important all right number two we want to add in a minute fasting to ketosis why because it’s another tool to lower insulin why because every time you eat you trigger insulin so of course we want to do everything we can to help normalize insulin you’re gonna see so many powerful health benefits also when you’re doing admit fasting you can actually potentially increase growth hormone four times higher than exercise and I’m talking like hardcore exercise that’s huge this is the anti-aging hormone you want to let your body tell you when to eat and how to do intermittent fasting so you go as long as you can and then when you’re hungry you eat so what’s gonna happen is in the beginning you’re gonna eat a little bit more frequently and then all of a sudden it could even be a week or two you’re not hungry anymore ride the wave go as long as you can without eating it could be a day two days it could even be three days but as long as you’re doing your electrolytes and sea salt would be vitamins you’re gonna actually do very well because prolonged fasting has even bigger benefits than regular intermittent fasting alright number three don’t get caught up in the significance of calories okay or macros I want to keep it really really really simple because each body is different and you need to test this out on your body to see you know exactly how many grams that your body does well on of protein and fat and in vegetables okay but here’s a simple diagram here if we just take a plate if we cut it in half and we fill up half the plate with veggies okay it’s like four cups five cups of course you’re gonna do this two times right if you’re doing two meals a day if you’re not you know then just do as much as you can but we need a lot of vegetables but believe it not the calories for these vegetables are very small given the total amount per day so it’s really only about five to ten percent of your total calories because it’s mostly fiber and water so that’s the veggies okay if you bloat then consume less we don’t want you bloating but here’s the thing protein usually comes with fat so a lot of times this is a combination but you really want about three to six ounces of protein now think about when I talk about three to six ounces I’m talking about the actual piece of meat or fish okay the actual whole thing not the protein in that meat or fish I’m talking about the actual whole food itself okay and that comes in like twenty percent of calories but again I don’t want you to get caught up in this just visualize the plate okay and then this could be like nuts olives avocados that type of fat and then as far as other carbohydrates we’re dealing with like 5% that could be hummus a little bit of berry things like that before higher fat in the start of the program and then less fat as you adapt to fat burning okay when you start this keto plan you want to increase the fat to be able to go from one meal to the next okay then once you’ve adapted and the way that you know you’ve adapted is the hunger it goes away so you’re no longer hungry so guess what it’s working you no longer have cravings it’s going to be easier now if you have very hunger and no cravings you’re going to be able to do it a lot longer okay then if you’re on the higher carb diet which is you’re gonna be hungry all the time and snacking all the time but once you’ve adapted to fat-burning okay it could be one week two weeks then you can actually start cutting down the fat a little bit maybe down to 75 grams or less because that way we can force your body to eat its own fat and this is mainly for people that are trying to lose weight you can speed it up by just kind of scaling it back a little bit alright number five this this is really not a diet that you’re gonna go on and go off this is really just a new way of eating it’s a lifestyle change we’re just fulfilling all of our nutrients and we’re not eating all the carbohydrates sometimes people think that it’s not normal not to eat that many carbohydrates but we’re just outlining what our body needs based on blood Sugar’s right now you have about a gallon and a third of blood in your body and normal sugars which around like 75 to 85 milligrams per deciliter in your blood if you were to get tested now and if it was normal it’d be like between 75 and 85 okay definitely under 100 that would basically come out to about one teaspoon of sugar for your entire blood very small amounts okay and you can actually get that sugar from eating protein or fat your body can convert that into sugar so we really need no sugar but the average person consumes 31 teaspoons of sugar every single day that’s not normal so when people say that we need more cars because our brain needs it that is a lie we don’t our body doesn’t need that much okay so this is a normal thing it’s a healthy thing it’s a sane way of eating but the key is understanding why you’re eating what you’re eating okay because the bigger goal especially in the in the beginning is usually you’re going on this program to solve a problem either wait you have inflammation you have some body issue and that’s because the insulin needs to be normalized okay and keto healthy keto and them in the fasting are two tools that can help you so I would not look at as a diet I recently had someone tell me that Oh your program didn’t work and I found out they only did it for two weeks it did work when they were doing it and they stopped doing it and then the weight came back yeah I’m like okay so you’re not very aware of why you’re doing this right so basically I said you want to keep doing what worked it’s not a diet that you’re gonna stop and go back to your junk food I mean that’s like completely does not make sense so you want to do it long-term and you want to adjust the macros based on your own physiology all right thanks for

The first thing you need to know is the principle of get healthy to lose weight and not lose weight to get healthy. So there’s a version of ketosis which is used on children way back 100 years ago to actually handle epilepsy. I don’t really consider that a healthy version of ketosis for the average person to do because they’re not emphasizing the quality of those macros. We want to use higher quality ingredients and we want to focus on getting healthy first, now what does this actually mean the great majority of population has too much of insulin. Excessive amounts of insulin is behind most chronic health problems, strokes, definitely diabetes, inflammatory conditions, cognitive deficiencies I think mood disorders as well, 65% of the population is either pre-diabetic or diabetic so right there they have too much insulin. Getting healthy is normalizing insulin, we don’t need zero insulin we just need normal insulin. So that’s really really important. Number 2, we want to add intermittent fasting to ketosis. Why? Because it’s another tool to lower insulin. Why? because everytime you eat you trigger insulin. Of course we want to do everything we can to help normalize insulin, you’re gonna see so many powerful health benefits. Also when you actually potentially increase growth hormone four times higher than exercise and i’m talking like hardcore exercise. That’s huge. This is the anti-aging hormone. You want to let your body tell you when to eat and how to do intermittent fasting so you go as long as you can and then when you’re hungry you eat so what’s gonna happen is in the beginning you’re gonna eat a little bit more frequently and then all of a sudden it could even be a week or two you’re not hungry anymore – ride the ways as long as you can without eating it could be a day two days, it could even be three days but as long as you’re doing your electrolytes, sea salt and vitamins, you’re gonna actually do very well because prolonged fasting has even bigger benefits than regular intermittent fasting.
