New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Weekly Q&A | Fasting & Coffee on Insulin Resistance | Cardio & Fish on Keto?
you know what I’ve got right here I’ve got lots and lots of comments and questions printed out that you’ve posted on my various YouTube videos in this case for the last week so if you’re new to my channel this is something that I do okay what I do is I take a period of time where I can just focus on a lot of the different questions that come in on the channel and just put them into one simple video that way I’m not just having to just constantly reply to comments although we do that as well members of my team or myself will do it so let’s go ahead and let’s dive right in so this time we’re covering the week of January 14th so last week I’m gonna start with this first video which was best fish to eat on keto the simple approach pretty self-explanatory it was a video that broke down which fish had the best omega-3 profiles which ones are good to eat and why you should be eating them it’s pretty straightforward so the first question comes from quarter-turn asks the school I go to serves farm-raised salmon in the dining hall am I better off just skipping the fish altogether is there a net negative result from eating farm-raised salmon how bad is it Thomas yeah I would honestly abstain from it of course the Omega profile itself is not good but the antibiotics and everything that goes in it there is a net negative response I would honestly just keep it out just keep it out you’re better off just going with something else Sarah when Muller says yes please do expand this list of fish and seafood that’s been on a keto diet also what about taking omega-3s on a keto diet is that important and if so which brand do you recommend I recommend getting your Omega threes from an algal oil okay and it’s not because I’m a vegan I’m not it’s because it’s the purest source higher DHA so algal oil is derived from algae so that way you’re going right to the source one thing we have to understand is that fish aren’t magically born with omega-3s they get it from the food that they eat they get it from the plankton the phytoplankton which consume the algae so it goes through that process then it actually goes through a fermentation process in the fish to get you excess of pentanoic and dunker so hexanoic acid if you get pure Doukas a hexanoic you’re getting it from the alcohol form so I recommend an algal oil I have a patent on a specific form so if you check out pure thrive I don’t talk about them a whole lot in my youtube videos but that’s one of my companies so I recommend check them out Keira thrive PU RA th RI ve Nico critic o says is wild caught caught a good fish to eat yeah wild caught Cod is okay just you know of course use your better judgment whenever possible and then we’ve got gotough illusion says what about smoked mackerel does it still have all the nutrition yeah so the nice thing is even though it’ll actually I will say the smoked is actually gonna be a better effect because it’s usually cooked at a lower temperature which means that you’re preserving some of the omega-3s which could be fragile so in short yes it’s good James Mullen Hoff says I don’t live in the USA and I cannot get wild caught salmon so should I avoid it completely also my stores don’t sell sardines and water on the oil will rinse thing them off and water remove the oil so you already know the answer to the wild-caught salmon thing it’s not wild cot it’s not growing in your body rinsing off the oil does help I mean if that’s your only situation if that’s the only thing you can do go for it it’s better than nothing it’s better than a kick in the teeth Betsy Rock says how about canned sardines in olive oil healthy oil or no olive oil is okay but you got to remember they’re probably using low quality olive oil and olive oil is not very stable so in a can it’s probably fine cuz it’s staying dark and it’s not getting oxidized but you’re better off to just I don’t know try not to go for that whatever possible mr. furious says hey Thomas what do you think about using a lean white fish like flounder or freshwater bass and controlling the fat that you do get in like you do with lean chicken breast yeah I mean that’s not a bad way to go and you know best depends again on freshwater fish is very difficult because you don’t know it’s very dependent on the specific environment that you’re in so some freshwater bass can be really high-quality I’d be all for it but other ones not so much so if that’s the case then yeah just add the fats to it go ultra lean okay the next video was coffee causes insulin resistance don’t panic okay this was funny so the video is about how coffee does trigger insulin resistance but it’s a temporary thing and it actually can be a good thing but it was really funny because a lot of views hit this video fast like there’s a lot of views really quick and the amount of dislikes on the video was so high and I realized that so many people weren’t even watching the video they just literally were reading the title and they thought that I was throwing coffee under the bus and they immediately just had a knee-jerk reaction now first it was irritating but then I was like that’s actually pretty funny I mean it’s just shows that no matter what we just have a stimulus like it’s something to just trigger something but when you watch the video you realize that the resistance is actually a good thing in this case that’s why I said don’t panic in the title but anyway Jared Berg ster says you’ve contradicted yourself yet again you made a video about having coffee with carbs post-workout and the carbs go straight into the muscle and then at the end of this video you say don’t have caffeine with carbs am i misunderstanding something I love your content and I really appreciate the effort you put in I just get confused a lot with the contradictions you make with new evidence Jared I appreciate you being cordial about this being polite with this comment but it warrants me explaining something and let me just kind of prepare for that one because it frustrates the heck out of me because quite honestly my videos are not a coaching system they are not there to tell you everything to do let me say that again my videos are not a coaching system they’re not there to tell you everything you should do okay that would be like me coaching you these videos are here for your information so some people need to increase their glycogen uptake which is what the car video is about so post-workout coffee with some carbohydrates could increase your glycogen if that is your goal if your goal is to increase your glycogen uptake so you have more power for another workout then that is the route to go if you’re trying to burn some fat or you’re trying to grasp an understanding of insulin resistance and caffeine’s relationship with it then this video is for you my videos are not designed to be stacked on top of one another otherwise that would imply that everybody is doing vegan keto intermittent fasting with cars while doing hit while also doing low intensity cardio while also having a baby while also trying to combat PCOS while also trying to make sure that you’re mentally sound while also trying to make sure that you induce the right kind of energy at the same amount of time all while sleeping and drinking coffee okay you get what I’m saying I do videos on everything so please please for the love of all things everyone please understand this because it’s getting a little frustrating it’s very good information that’s out there for different points in time for different applications okay I rest my case sorry about that I had to do that okay John Woo says Thomas can the adrenal glands be built back up I’ve been told that once the adrenals are overtaxed they can never recover I’ve been dealing with adrenal fatigue for years and I have to depend on caffeine just to get through my day is the damage irreparable or can it be fixed so studies are showing that adrenal fatigue is kind of a not even a real thing it’s more about adrenal insufficiency but it it is showing that adrenal insufficiency can get better in terms of it can you can recover from it it just takes time and remineralisation of the body unfortunately you would have to abstain from caffeine for a long period of time for that to occur so it’s a hard one Safa 13 says so caffeine and carbs together are not good unless it’s post-workout I have my morning black coffee then worked out after two hours do you think it’s too far apart then maybe the rise of blood sugar after the coffee didn’t used to it so am i causing or halting fat loss no I think you’re in a good situation there and you nailed it yeah so if you’re trying to like I said before increase glycogen uptake increase the carbs are going in your muscles then share caffeine and carbs work well otherwise yeah try not to combine them so I think that your two-hour window there I think you’re far enough apart you should be fine in the next video was cardio and a keto diet cardio just got easier talking about endurance and everything like that Jeffrey Hoffman says how long does it take to become fat adapted so some studies show it takes as little as six weeks some studies show it takes a little bit longer I think it all depends on the person I think it’s one of those kind of things where genetics load the gun lifestyle pulls the trigger like you know are you predisposed to be able to be more fat adapted how was your diet over the last 10 years I think these all these things play a role so for me I mean I was doing keto for a long time before I truly felt that adapted which leads me into the next question from the end Rashad says please give some signs slash symptoms of that adaptation well usually you get into keto fast but the main thing is the semane sign is your ketone levels don’t get super high so when you measure with the urine strip or you measure with a blood meter your ketones just don’t get that high you just never notice moving that highest because your body is adjusted and adapted and it doesn’t need to produce an excess amount David Ray says so what do you recommend low or high intensity cardio so I’m a fan of both I love low intensity cardio I love to get out and hike I’d love to get out and run that’s just me but I will say that hit is pretty darn effective because you can really instantly but I will say that hit is really effective canyou can instigate that catecholamine response that you need to burn fat so if you had to pick one or the other probably go for hit but honestly mix it up Chris lothario says sorry to go off-topic but is kombucha okay for Kido and if so when is it best 1/2 totally depends on the brand some use a bunch of sugar in their process and their fermentation process some don’t if you look at like the synergy brand they’re pretty high in sugar but some of like the other ones that are out there like health aid there are some pretty low ones so pretty low sugar content so I just kind of got to use moderation there JP kokomo says are there any studies that show how long it takes to reverse fat adaptation you mentioned in a few videos when your thought of death and you can eat carbs you get back in the keto easily but how can you stay out how long can you stay off keto before you undo all your hard work the cool thing is the studies are actually showing that fat adaptation is a pretty permanent thing now I can’t go on record and say that’s entirely true but the research is showing that so I don’t think that you should go out and just load up on carbs for three years and hope that you’re gonna be fat adapted but ultimately you’ve developed the mitochondrial machinery and it should be there to stay at least as those cells replicate and multiply the next video was fasting and its weird effect on insulin peripheral insulin resistance so this was talking about something that I discovered when I was doing a longer term fast and I noticed that my blood sugar went up it was pretty interesting so it caused me to go into a bunch of rabbit or different rabbit holes and research this so the first question is Tobi first says does this mean that the post-workout meal should be fat protein and not carb protein when you just did a long fast before the workout it all depends you know you may have a good point like your blood Sugar’s and elevated is insulin not going to allow them of carbs to get in I would usually recommend yeah and that case after a longer fast maybe just some fat protein or even just protein is the way to go Erick beaver says what happens to the gut microbiome during it for long fast how does it affect your immune system so that’s an interesting thing so and there’s another question that comes up at the end of this that I read that I thought was really interesting that ties in with this so I’ll kind of answer this in two parts the gut microbiome usually stays about the same okay so you’re going to a point when you don’t eat or you have specific kinds of bacteria that grow it’s like when you rest and recover you have a certain set of bacteria that proliferate then and then when you eat you have a different set of bacteria so I would imagine that when you’re prolonged fasting that one group of bacteria that responds to more so recovery and restoration is actually increased so you’re probably in a good situation there little voice says does this elevation and blood sugar during the fast increase inflammation and damage caused by high circulating glucose well I don’t think you’re gonna have astronomically high levels of circulating glucose mine we’re pretty high for a little while but then they started to stabilize it’s about the body of getting adapted and stuff like that so I don’t think you’re gonna run into an issue there Jason McDonald says when intermittent fasting and you get a cold or flu do you continue to fast or break it would it be healthier to stay in a fasted state so that’s kind of interesting so the immune system operates in a few different ways but when we look at things like mammalian target Efrat myosin which is really more of an anabolic kind of on switch for your body that’s activating when you eat and when you workout not activated when you are fasting so some people would think that when you’re fasting you’re in a more immunise how do I say this your your immune system is a little bit more hyperactive like you’re you’re actually operating in a good sense not necessarily the case I think it’s kind of indifferent so what happens is if you get sick when you’re fasting you’re not necessarily in this automatic like auto Fujii state where you’re just going to not get sick I thought but you doesn’t really have a whole lot to do with the immune system so it’s a hard one to answer but I would almost go so far saying like if you get the flu I don’t think you should continue too fast I think you should break your fast and you should do it you need to do to get better a cold is a little bit of different story it’s an upper respiratory infection yeah you can probably get by with still fasting I don’t think it’s gonna hurt you or help you one way or the other so that pretty much sums it up in the last week you’re gonna keep it locked in next Wednesday I will post up another video that has comments from this week’s videos so as always make sure you’re not locked in here my channel appreciate you tuning in and sorry for my little rant halfway through see guys in the next video

Weekly Q&A | Fasting & Coffee on Insulin Resistance | Cardio & Fish on Keto – Thomas DeLauer
Best Fish to Eat on Keto: The Simple Approach
The school I go to serves farm-raised salmon in the dining hall. Am I better off skipping the fish altogether? Is there a net-negative result from eating farm-raised salmon? How bad is it, Thomas?
Yes please do expand this list of the fish and seafood that’s best on a keto diet!!!! also what about taking Omega 3’s on a keto diet? Is that important and if so which brand do you recommend?
Is wild caught cod a good fish to eat?
What about smoked mackerel? Does it still have all the nutrition ?
I don’t live in the USA and cannot get wild-caught salmon. Should I avoid it completely? Also, my stores don’t sell sardines in water, only oil. Will rinsing them off in water to remove the oil help? Thanks.
How about canned sardines in Olive Oil? Healthy oil, no?
Hey Thomas, what do you think about using a lean white fish like flounder or freshwater bass and controlling the fat like you do with lean chicken breast?
Coffee causes Insulin Resistance (Don’t Panic)
You’ve contradicted yourself yet again. You made a video about having coffee WITH carbs post workout and the carbs will go straight into the muscle, and then at the end of this video you say to never ever have caffeine and carbs. Am I misunderstanding something? I love your content and really appreciate the effort you put in, I just get confused a lot with all of the contradictions you make with “new evidence”
Thomas, can the adrenal glands be built back up? I’ve been told that once the adrenal are overtaxed they can never recover. I’ve been dealing with adrenal fatigue for years and have had to depend on caffeine just to get through my day.
Is the damage irreparable or can it be fixed?
So caffeine and carbs together are not a good pair unless it’s post workout?
I have my morning black coffee then workout after 2 hours do you think it’s to far apart and maybe the rise of blood sugar after the coffee didn’t get used so it maybe causing or halting fat-loss?
Cardio on a Keto Diet – Cardio Just Got Easier (Endurance)
How long does it take to become fat adapted?
Please give some signs/symptoms of fat adaptation.
So what do you recommend low or high intensity cardio?
Sorry to go off topic but is kombucha okay for keto? And if so when is it best to have?
Is there any studies that show how long it takes to reverse fat adaptations? You mentioned is a few videos when you are fat adapted you can eat carbs and get back into ketosis easily. But how long can you stay off the keto diet before you undo all your hard work?
Fasting and it’s Weird Effect on Insulin (Peripheral Insulin Resistance)
Does this mean that the post workout meal should be fat protein and not carb protein when you just did a long fast before the workout?
What happens to the gut microbiome during a prolonged fast? How does it affect your immune system?
Does this elevation in blood sugar during the fast (due to insulin resistance) increase inflammation and the damage caused by high circulating glucose?
When intermittent fasting and you get a cold or flu, do you continue to fast or break it? Would it be healthier to stay in a fasted state?
