New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Do We Really Need Carbohydrates??
hey guys dr. Burke here in this video I want to share my opinion on do we need carbohydrates okay so now there’s going to be a lot of different viewpoints that people are going to talk about I’m just going to give my two cents I don’t want to get in an argument with anyone but let me just give you some basics on what I think is very workable but whatever works for you go ahead and go for it so people think they need carbohydrates mainly for energy but you can run your body on other types of calories you can run your body on protein you can run your body on fat and so you don’t always have to run your body on carbohydrates so there’s a Smith that you have like all the energy you have in your body comes from a carbohydrate not necessarily true so let me just kind of explain so you’ve got simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates simple carbohydrates are like sugar honey agave nectar so what happens is that goes in your body really fast and it spikes the sugar it might give you some temporary energy but then you’re going to come down because you have the hormone called insulin that regulates that but then complex carbohydrates have a lot of additional things like fiber that slow the breakdown and the carbohydrate in the body and so it doesn’t create that same effect as table sugar so here’s the thing though let’s just kind of break down each type of carbohydrate now some of this actually contract contains proteins amino acids but mainly it’s a carbohydrate okay we definitely need more vegetables not initially for the carbohydrate but mainly for the vitamins okay and the minerals that’s really why we need those because that’s where most of the vitamins and minerals come from it also has fiber but what fiber does it’s not necessarily something like a bulking agent it’s mainly to feed the microbes your intestinal flora your good bacteria live on microbes and they need fiber and you don’t have to get your fiber from brand or grains you can get it from the vegetable family okay so that’s why we need vegetables in large quantities to beans now the thing about beans is it doesn’t turn into as fast as other types of carbohydrates however if you have a slow metabolism if you’re trying to lose weight I have found that people have a hard time doing this on beans because it’s it’s a lot of carbs okay so if it works for you try it if you have a slow metabolism you might not want to consume very many beans okay a lot of people have gas with beans as well so that’s my viewpoint on that no fruits fruits are great but the problem is that it can range from a high glycemic index to a low glycemic index if you have like berries and things that’s a little lower than apples apples have like 19 to 30 grams of sugar per Apple that’s like a lot of sugar so the thing about fruits is this on some people it’s going to slow them down to lose weight okay they’re not going to be able to weight as fast now you’re going to have exceptions to the rule with people with a faster metabolism but I’m dealing with mainly women in their 50s who having a hard time and I get the fruit out of the diet and boom everything starts going down a lot easier so again you’re going to have exceptions but typically fruit it’s just too sweet it’s too much carbohydrate now there are viewpoints out there that you see people that do a fruit diet and they lose all this weight well probably because they cut out all of the sugar okay that’s in the diet as well and their metabolism might be a little bit faster but I’m just talking about if you take someone that’s been dieting for many years and you keep them on fruit it’s going to slow them down I used to recommend fruit I don’t recommend fruit if you’re trying to lose weight okay there is some vitamins and fruit maybe a little bit of berry but not much okay now grains grains you have like whole wheat bread and white bread the whole thing here’s the thing it’s very very similar sore glycemic index so it does turn into sugar fairly fast and I don’t recommend grains for two reasons number one there is not a lot of nutrition in grains some people disagree but just look it up it’s not that high if you compare to vegetables the other thing is it’s real hard in the digestive system because it has glue ten gluten is the protein in grains and gluten creates all sorts of silly AK problems in irritable bowel syndrome and irritation to the colon and it’s one of those things that you just have to try it yourself and see if it if you feel better not consuming it okay I found that when you consume grains you people go out of bloating and you just have to know yourself and just try it out the other thing is starches so there are diet alte that recommend tons of starches and some people lose weight some people don’t well here’s the point I don’t want to get into a whole debate on starches I just want you to go ahead and try it for yourself eat starches for a week and see if you lose weight and if you do great on my experience is that you probably are not going to lose weight because these starches turn in sugar pretty down fast it’s not the highest sources of vitamins compared to vegetables so I like to stay away from these right here okay now if you’re trying to gain weight I think potatoes are the best food that you can consume okay maybe wild rice if you’re a high level athlete doing marathons okay then you might you have a high metabolism maybe you’re going to need some brown rice maybe a potato but for the average person their kid they can’t get away with it okay in summary do we need carbohydrates well we do need carbohydrates for our vitamins and minerals and fiber okay hope you learned something make some comments below and I will see you in the next video
