New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Weekly Q&A | Foods that Break a Fast | Alcohol & Estrogen | How to Measure Ketosis?
it is that time a week again which means I am filming my weekly YouTube question-and-answer if you’re new to my channel this is something that I do weekly where I take the previous week’s questions and I go ahead and I put them into their own dedicated video see this way I can actually go through and comb through and find what I think are the most thought-provoking and interesting questions but also though it just might be good ideas for future videos now today I’m some more super special I’m sitting in the thrive market kitchen because believe it or not they are about an hour from where I live so it worked out great so I was here shooting some content they were generous enough to allow me to use their kitchen for today’s filming so I didn’t have to do it from the front seat of my car so anyway what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna go through last week’s videos list them off and answer some of the questions as we go you’re tuned in the internet’s leading performance nutrition and fat loss channel there’s new videos every single Tuesday Friday and Sunday at 7 a.m. Pacific time alright so the first video was stop buying expensive mayo here’s how to make it cheap just like the title implies this was all about how to make mayo from scratch okay like you can go out and you can spin like eleven twelve dollars and some of this Mayo or you can just make it yourself just some really basic ingredients and it’s ultimately the best keto fat that you could probably get so the first question comes from Jason Simpson he says how much does that make and how long will it last in the fridge it makes a good amount that made about twelve ounces and it’ll keep in the fridge if you keep it you can put it in another like an old mayonnaise jar that you washed and it’ll stay in the fridge for at least a couple of weeks Rico Ramirez says great video thanks one question how many calories are in the Mayo that you made in this video generally going to be about the same no matter what adding a little bit of avocado that I did to this particular batch added maybe like a half a gram of carbs to a single serving we are generally talking like one tablespoon is going to be about ninety ish calories not of this world asks I don’t understand about adding the oil in so slowly because I read that when I was making mine a few days ago but since I didn’t have a stand mixer I blended everything it still came out fine I’m wondering if it’s still okay to blender if there’s a reason that it’s bad you might have gotten lucky because a couple of times that I’ve tried blending it an emulsion blender is it comes completely clumps up and gets really broken it’s all about kind of keeping the protein from getting to nature so you might have just gotten lucky I don’t know if you’ve tried it again since but BHO by Jill says how long does it last in the fridge and if you can’t use it quick enough this can you freeze it so yes it’s gonna last a couple weeks and yeah you can free it the hard part is is once it defrosts it might separate so you’re gonna want to defrost it in the fridge so not defrost it at room temp also you don’t want ptomaine poisoning adventurous one says well someone please explain what is wrong with pure olive oil I’ve noticed that most keto gurus don’t use olive oil yet studies at Howdy’s show has a lot of benefit to heart health olive oil is great stuff okay but it is a specific so low fat so what I mean by that is it’s a monounsaturated fat so it has a lot of ability to end up becoming denatured which again it’s not a bad thing you just can if you’re gonna heat with it or anything like that or cook with it it can disrupt it it can break it down so olive oil is awesome you just want to make sure that you’re using it to rizzoli on top of things not things that are super scorching hot or cooking with it alright the next video well it’s kind of funny it was called basics of fat loss simple science that you can use kind of funny because it really wasn’t that simple it was pretty complex and I saw that in the feedback but it was it was kind of interesting anyway very good but in a video that breaks down exactly how it overall works in your body in terms of hormone sensitive lipase and whatnot sauna Aamir says dear Thomas I just really admire your study but I’m very much confused about the role of beta blockers I’ve been consuming them for the last 15 years and I think they’ve resulted in slowing down my metabolism my efforts to lose fat and put on muscle at the same time looking forward to an expert’s advice so beta blockers there hasn’t been a lot of science or studies that show that it has an effect on fat loss in a negative way but yeah it doesn’t block adrenaline which could very well blunt your fat loss effect there’s just not a lot of studies to show that so everything that I say here is going to be kind of just hypothesized but it would make sense right a dog one-one-one-one says question if I’m taking beta blockers for hypertension is keto not going to work for me no keto is absolutely going to work for you it’s not going to completely block norepinephrine and epinephrine it just blunts it you know people take them for hypertension because it makes it you know your bust blood vessels constrict it’s not constricting them all the way to where you’re not having blood flow right it’s just trickling it down a little bit more free quit all says how do I activate those hormones to start the hormone sensitive lipase which breaks down fat that’s the real question exercise fasting a little bit of the ketogenic diet those are the kind of things high interval training those activate that AMPK that’s going to make it so that you can activate hormone sensitive lipase and get lipolysis to kick into gear Sheila G says the fatty acid breakdown going into the liver explains why my glucose can rise when fasting yes that’s exactly right it’s called peripheral insulin resistance so when you fast your glucose will will rise simply because your body is utilizing fats as the main fuel source so the glucose isn’t really being used so it flows around through your bloodstream and a little bit higher rate the next video was measuring the effect of keto and fasting on fat loss a simple formula so this video was really cool cutting-edge stuff talking about the glucose ketone index or gki which is the ratio between ketones and glucose meaning that it’s not just about what your ketones are at what millimoles they’re at but it’s also about the division between the ketones and your glucose levels and that’s what really matter so this video explains the whole formula very simple formula and gives you the breakdown also big shout out to keto mojo on this one because they they did sponsor that video because they’re the only FDA approved meter that’s like truly legit and actually FDA approved for that stuff the new brazii 999 says what’s your thoughts on coffee and immature suppression if taken after a workout well coffee slow down muscle growth no I mean so coffee will improve on top of G but it doesn’t automatically inhibit Emmitt or if you’re having protein with your coffee that you’re having kind of a simultaneous auto fit G effect but it’s all to your goal I would recommend splitting up your workouts to where some days you have coffee and then don’t eat for a couple hours and some days you eat right after your workout just split it up so you get the effect of both Luke airborn says these cordyceps and chocolate coffee good for this stuff just like actual coffee honestly I’m a big fan of cordyceps I mean I talk about all the time huge boost in ATP production which is therefore gonna help all kinds of different fat loss approaches and hormone sensitive lipase and everything like that too but when it comes down to like helping your body utilize fuel sources like I think it’s great be scribbs 88 says how do you tell after a while on keto when your body becomes fully fat adaptive well actually the G ki is a good way to do it okay that lower ratio that lower number it’s going to tell you that you’re in a deeper keto state and your body’s fat adapted but ultimately I mean six eight ten weeks you’re gonna get pretty fat adapted anyway but you’ll tell just because your body I mean you just feel more energized you feel like your endurance improves you feel like your mental capacity improves there’s a lot of bye signs Zach Payne says hey Thomas I was thinking about getting creatine I’ve heard that creatine monohydrate is best on keto but someone told me creatine monohydrate bloats and I’ve watched videos saying that bloating prevents weight loss or slows it down on keto what are your opinions I don’t think bloating slows down weight loss it all depends on what’s happening with creatine it’s just water retention so yeah you can expect to see a small degree of water intention but if you’re using a good quality creatine it’s gonna be at the intracellular level and it’s going to act like sort of like a potassium draw where it’s actually gonna increase the volume ization of the muscle so it’s only gonna spill over and make you bloated and puffy if you do too much so maybe like two grams of creatine with your post-workout drink or just throughout the course of the day Franz Wiebe says hey Thomas great video and love that formula just a question Wyn would you measure gki after or before your workout or in the middle of training love your work bro Franz measure as much as you possibly can it’s the only way because honestly if you were to measure right now and then measure five minutes later you’d have a starkly different reading the body is weird and how processes ketones the process ketones and batches and we’re not in like a pressure chamber where our blood is just going and even pressure all the time or enough surges of ketones surges of glucose so you want to try to do what you can to just measure consistently throughout the day and really compare apples to apples like post-workout one day then the next day post-workout but also throughout the other times of the day so you can cross-reference it just it makes more sense to get you a more concrete answer vince d says does the Mojo strip measure both the same time at the same strip no it doesn’t unfortunately that’s not really possible because it’s two completely different systems and kind of almost CPUs that operate and measure that next video is the effect of alcohol and estrogen best and worst choices super awesome video broke down like which alcohols actually increased estrogen in men and women and which ones actually have little effect so it’s a couple of options there so how the Salama says alcohol before bed can disrupt the sleep question mark absolutely it can it definitely it triggers your brain to go into a completely different mode and it messes up your sleep weight cycle it messes up your basically the theta waves that you would normally get into Matt Troy says what about those new keto friendly wines that are out there are those safe to drink on occasion yeah so I think you talked about like dry farm wines and stuff like that they’re okay I think they’re just still just regular mine wines that are just extra dry so they’re lower carb content the fact is like wines are pretty low carb in general and they all have congeners they’re all hard to break down so take it or leave it in moderation I don’t think there’s anything that special I mean some of them are okay but Randy Allen says where does tequila stay on your rating an acceptable alcohol well like the country song says now just get it actually you know it’s a key that’s still pretty clean so tequila if it’s aged properly if it’s clean it’s gonna be okay it’s sad say on a scale of one to ten one being the worst ten being the best I would probably say it’s about a seven Himanshu Mishra says when I plan to drink I usually don’t eat and take electrolytes throughout the day I drink to still vodka with no food sometimes I take glutathione is there anything I’m missing you’re gonna want to eat something like an hour before you actually drink alcohol okay what that’s gonna do is that’s gonna at least give you something to help absorb if you go fasted throughout the day and then drink that’s just asking to be well you’ll be a cheap date I guess you get that Newton says thanks Thomas this is a topic I needed and will benefit from how about a sliding scale of drinks that our friendliest for Quito and if’ Everclear whiskey and vodka on the top then red wine then lighter beers and followed white wine followed by dark beers and sugary mixed drinks you know you’re pretty rock solid I would just add so Everclear to start I would say vodka triple distilled vodka quadruple distilled vodka then I would probably cut it down to tequila’s gins then move into the whiskies then red wines white wines lighter beers dark beers and then Brandy’s and things like that aah IMS a says wine too much sugar red or white please talk about it thanks Thomas your buddies are always so helpful yeah kind of answered this one already dry red or dry white you’re gonna be okay just limit it to three or four ounces don’t go crazy on it there is a good amount of sugar and alcohol in general we gotta just control next video was five unusual things that break a fast you know this video crushed like it’s breaking the internet again which was awesome that we’re having more of these but five unusual things that break a fast so this was talking about like weird things like toothpaste and branched chain amino acids not saying that you absolutely can’t brush your teeth while you’re fasting but I wanted to get into some detail because so many people have asked you have to absolutely go back and watch this video so Noah Gordon says what about fluoride in your tap water that doesn’t get filtered in the Brita yeah so a lot of people talk about that a lot of comments about that so a lot of studies have shown that there’s a lot of fluoride in water sometimes more fluoride in a glass of water then will be in the we’re serving a toothpaste so does that rake a fast amazing question because the fluoride technically causes an insulin spike so I would just filter your water the best that you can a lot of fluoride in their water is a big problem it’s not good for us at all so I would try to avoid that either way Janet when Davis comes says Green Team coffee has antioxidants are those okay yes so they do have antioxidants they’re not concentrated like you get in a high dose vitamin C so you’re finally jb says how about thyroid meds in the morning always take your meds my videos are not supposed to be any substitute for health advice or medical advice and I can’t tell you what to do with your medication that’s up to your doctor but it’s not gonna mess up your fast I can tell you that but Duke and says does clove break a fast it depends how much I would say maybe an eighth of a teaspoon that you might put in some coffee would be fine shaaka Brenda says does blood pressure medication break the fast same answer take your meds electrolytes do they break a fast as long as they’re not sweetened with like a high amount of a riff or tall but like maybe a little bit stevia you’re good to go there did – gia D ge says does through pill capsules break a fast if they have gelatin what about taking herbs like ashwagandha ginseng rhodiola with those break your fast I would say the herbs are probably okay there’s no real insulin spike if there’s a gelatin casing like an actual real gelatin casing you could say that it could break a fast but again probably just best just to keep your vitamins and minerals till the end of your fast I mean if you’re gonna fast keep it cure keep it clean it’s easier that way anyway and I think that’s just gonna make a big difference for you all in all so that’s it that wraps up today’s Q&A and I hope I answered some of your questions again please don’t be a funny that if I didn’t answer your question if we get literally thousands that come in each week so if yours was selected congratulations I try to try to cycle through and get as many good ones as I can but that’s that and again big thank you to thrive market for letting us use their studio kitchen today and keep a lookout for all the content that’s here to come from my channel and also content from thrive alright see you guys soon

Stop Buying Expensive Mayo: Here’s how to Make it CHEAP
How much does that make and how long will it last in the fridge?
Great video….thanks. One question: How many calories are in the mayo that you made in this video?
I don’t understand about adding the oil in so slowly because I read that just making mine a few days ago for the first time but since I don’t have a stand mixer I blended everything at the same time and it still worked out great perfect mayo but you said something about the proteins? So am wondering if it’s still okay to blend it or is there a reason it’s bad ? Do you have to add slowly for health reasons?
