The Ketogenic Diet & Constipation
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Ketogenic Diet & Constipation?
hey guys in this video I want to talk about ketosis and constipation now I wish it was Bill cut-and-dry that it would always be this one thing but it’s it’s usually a complex thing that could involve multiple things so I’m just going to go through some of the scenarios that that come up most people think it’s a lack of fiber that causes constipation that is absolutely not true in fact a lot of the fiber that people consume even from vegetables it’s insoluble which means it’s not digesting so adding more will actually constipate you more so if you look at what you did before starting this plan and after we want to look at the big changes and we want to evaluate each change and I’m not talking about constipation you had before doing ketosis that’s a whole different situation which involves probiotics and a bunch of other stuff I’m talking about after the ketogenic diet you started getting constipation what do you do what do you look at so we’re going to look at the change in vegetable fibers okay the microbes live on fiber they will get overwhelmed easily if you have not adapted these microbes to this new way of eating so just like keto adaptation you have to look at the adaptation of the microbes that have to evolve and grow to digest all these fibers because if they can’t digest the fibers you’re going to have this all this cruciferous or kale shaking you’re going to bloat you’re going to get gas if that’s happening then you’re going to have to change the vegetables that’s simple too maybe something like like just lettuce spinach other types of vegetables romaine lettuce something like that to get your greens so just definitely look at that other people have an issue with certain types of cruciferous like myself I can’t eat broccoli it tears me up it will constipate me I can do lots of cabbage other people cannot do cabbage they can do broccoli so you’re going to test it out I also recommend fermented vegetables simply because those are much easier to break down and pickles are good sauerkraut kimchi very very good okay so we have that and then we also have you know just the fat that you’re eating the protein in most cases those two types of macros are easier to digest then the vegetable carbohydrates believe it or not but it could be that you’re doing too much fat that’s plugging up the gallbladder and that is backing you up so if we look at just the whole digestive system you have the ability to digest fat proteins carbohydrates or or even fiber and just you want to just check each one of those so so things to adjust our the vegetable the type of vegetable may be too much fat and the other thing is that when you start a ketogenic diet you will sometimes lose a lot of water weight in the process lose a lot of electrolytes so that’s why I always like to add that back in there I highly recommend the electrolyte powder that I use because it has a thousand milligrams of potassium it has magnesium and as all the electrolytes and trace minerals no sugar that usually will help the elimination greatly so even potassium in general is the electrolyte to help with muscle cramps and colon cramping or stagnant colon so when you have more potassium and helps facilitate elimination as well as magnesium those two are electrolytes that are really important elimination on a very rare occasion I may have the person make more water but typically that’s very rare that’s not usually the cause but it’s something to look at if you’re eating drinking no water you know that could be a situation but it’s rare the other thing is that if you’re doing too many nuts or even some seeds which it’s usually nuts or peanut butter typically if you’re doing raw nuts you’re doing you’re getting enzyme inhibitors which means that that’s going to stop your digestion right there that could be causing the constipation so an experiment would be to germinate the nuts soak them overnight draw them out in the oven on to lower temperatures and then consume them and you may find that that’s also a problem the other thing is just to cut out the nuts for a couple days and see if that gets rid of the constipation because that could block and it also has insoluble fibers so you’ve got the combination of enzyme inhibitors and then you just can’t digest the nuts the enzyme inhibitors and then as far as dairy goes so quite a few people are have allergies to milk sugar lactose okay so that’s the situation and you’re bloating or you’re not digesting this cheese that you’re consuming we got to look at that as well so just kind of experiment if you have some dairy and you get gas or bloating then we need to eliminate that at this time there are types of dairy that are low in lactose for example lactose free cheese lactose usually cheese has very low amounts of lactose because the microbes consume that sugar and then they they basically you get more of a protein than you would get if you had actual milk or yogurt casein is the protein in dairy which that’s really high in hard cheeses and it’s also lower in soft cheeses it’s higher in Greek yogurt so you know if you’re consuming too much of that protein that could back people up as well back you up so you might want to try try goat’s cheese or sheep cheese which people can digest that much better than actually cheese from cows so you might want to try that as well so these are just things to look at in your search to find a solution for constipation put your comments below hi guys hey listen I created a pretty amazing evaluation quiz down below that actually analyzes your symptoms to find the cause the root cause of all of your symptoms the most likely cause so take the quiz now and we’ll send you report

Dr. Berg talks about ketosis and constipation. Most people think constipation is a lack of fiber. Most fiber is insoluble, which means it does not digest. Your microbes live on fiber. Fat and protein are easier to digest than vegetable fibers. Vegetables can bloat you, so make sure you only consume vegetables you CAN digest easily without bloating or constipation.
Fermented vegetables are really good for the system.
Too many nuts or seeds, esp. raw nuts (enzyme inhibitors) can also be a factor.
Quite a few people have allergies to lactose. If you get gas or bloating from dairy – then avoid it to see if the constipation goes away.

Hi guys, in this video I want to talk about ketosis and constipation. I wish it was always real cut and dry that it was always this one thing but it is usually a complex thing that could involve multiple things. Most people think that it is a lack of fiber that causes constipation, which is absolutely not true. In fact a lot of fiber that people usually consume even in vegetables is insoluble which means it is not digesting so adding more can constipate you more. If you look at what you did before starting this plan and after, we want to look at the big changes and we want to evaluate each change and I am talking about the constipation you had after you started the ketogenic plan. We are going to look at the change in vegetable fiber, the microbes live on fiber and they would get overwhelmed easily if you have not adapted these microbes into this new way of eating, just like keto adaptation you would have to look at the adaptation of microbes that have to evolve to grow to digest all these fibers because if they can’t digest this fibers, you are going to have this cruciferous and kale shake and you are going to bloat and gas and if that is happening you have to change the vegetables to maybe something like lettuce, spinach and other types of vegetables.
