New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Why Low Calories Does Not Equal Weight Loss?
in this video I’m going to talk about calories this topic is probably one of the most confusing things that you can ever imagine so really pay attention because this is really important to video you know every so often I’ll have people come in and say you know dr. Berg I’m eating I’m not eating that many calories I don’t know why I’m not losing weight I mean I’m practicing portion control I’m eating everything in moderation why can’t I lose weight because I read in a book that it’s just a matter of calories in equal calories out and you will lose weight right well let me just go a little bit deeper so let’s first define what a calorie is calories are units of energy in food okay it’s a unit of energy and food so we have three basic types of food we have proteins we have fats and we have carbohydrates so let’s just talk about proteins first of all proteins have four calories per gram and fats have nine calories per gram and carbohydrates have four calories per gram so now if you didn’t understand about the hormone system which we’ll get into you would look at this and go wow look at those fats it contains more than twice the calories so therefore I’m going to avoid fats big and that’s going to help me lose weight well let’s take a look at what occurs as another layer on top of these calories because the way the body manipulates these calories is very different than a machine you have hormones that react in influence these all these three very differently okay so the first thing I’m going to talk about is the hormones involved when you eat protein now if you have a small amount of protein maybe three to four ounces you will trigger the fat burning hormones to help you burn fat now I want to mention what proteins the function of proteins in the body actually are there to replace in bill body tissue like muscle like ligament like collagen like your joints like your hair your nails a lot of the cell structures are all made from protein certain hormones are made from protein so that’s why we need protein we’re constantly replacing the body with these the structure of the material protein and through the hormone cycle alright so if you actually consume too much protein like a very large amount then what happens is you’ll trigger the opposite hormone called insulin and that makes fat okay so excessive protein can cause fat storage and so so really proteins can help you or they can hurt you depending on the amount now I want to talk about fats fat has the most calories but as far as hormones are involved it’s neutral as far as insulin it does not trigger the fat making hormones so it’s neutral now I’m not saying that if you consume all this fat that it could influence your ability to get fat I’m not saying to start eating tons of fat but I am saying there’s a diet out there called the ki toast ketosis diet and it’s used for children with seizures and it’s it’s also involved in the Atkins diet which is basically a high-protein diet and ketosis is basically a breakdown of fat in the body and fats convert converted to ketones and that ketones is used as fuel instead of sugar so in other words the Atkins diet works like this it’s very high protein and high fat and very low if any carbohydrates okay so we have high protein high fat and a lot of people lose weight with that so why because when you eat that much fat and oil it forces your body to release your own fat so in other words fat doesn’t necessarily always turn into fat now then dr. Bergdahl I recommend the Atkins diet well first of all it’s missing the nutrients there’s not enough vitamins and minerals in fat and protein to be able to sustain the body plus it’s very hard on your liver if you have all this fat that’s being burnt through the body it all has to come out through your liver which is three and a half pounds right here and it can plug up the liver and create all sorts of problems like a fatty liver it can block your liver from detoxification you can have bad breath it creates a lot of side effects it’s not the healthiest way to lose weight yet a lot of people will do it and they will lose weight but it’s not a long-term thing so fats are neutral with making fat but it also will force your body to burn up your own fat that fats used as an energy source and to satisfy the hunger as well there is some nutrients in fats but not a lot now we have carbohydrates now the carbohydrates depending on what kind of carbohydrate will either cause you to make fat or burn fat so the carbohydrates consisted of sugars okay and that would be refined grains like breads pasta cereal crackers biscuits waffles pancakes muffins so does things like that juice hidden sugars and yogurt alcohol all that will trigger even though it’s a small amount of calories it will trigger insulin which will make fat so carbohydrates are converted into fat if they break down the sugar really fast okay so that’s one thing number two the vegetables that we’re talking about vegetables are carbohydrates the non sweet vegetables the non starchy vegetables have a lot of nutrition and a lot of fiber and low sugar so those things do not convert to fat at all and that’s why we recommend them because it’s a very good sustaining thing that you can do for the liver because it enhances the nutrition into the body it gives you all the vitamins and mineral that we need to convert the proteins and fats to body tissues okay so that’s why we do recommend the non sweet carbohydrates now of course potatoes and rice and the starchy ones also are sugary and they convert into fat as well but the vegetable family does not so what I wanted just to make you aware of is the calories of these really react differently to hormones and it’s not as simple as calories in equals calories out it really depends on what type of carbohydrates one purpose of fat one of the purposes of fat would be to build the body tissues well every single cell in your body the outer part of the cell the cell wall is made from fat your brain is made from fat your hormones are made from hat fat all the nervous system that the covering around the nerves are made from fat all your skin is made from fat so you need certain fat to replace that you need fat and protein to build the body but you need the vitamins and minerals from the carbohydrates the vegetable carbohydrates to provide the nutrition to allow these to work and that is the purpose of nutrition is to allow the raw material to be converted into body tissue to allow that that egg that you eat to be turned into your hair you need vitamins and minerals at the DNA level and that’s why we have these nutrients to help repair and build body tissue okay so I hope that’s a good summary of what a calorie is I’m expanding your definition now what goes wrong is when you age the hormones change your metabolism changes and what I just talked about is even more important because now you’re going to have to be very very strict and how many carbs you allow into your body and you have to understand the function of proteins and fats and really keep the diet clean if you want to lose any weight because you can’t do what you did when you’re 18 when your metabolism on hormones were at their peak so the more the hormones decrease towards 50 this becomes more and more important but when you’re 18 you probably could lower your calories and lose weight just like that now you can’t now we also have if you Brewin your metabolism any other slow metabolism this becomes even more important as well so sometimes I’ll have people say dr. Berg am I ever going to go back to being able to eat Twinkies again I’ll say well you don’t have the luxury right now let’s build back up your metabolism so then this becomes less of a problem and you can eat more Twinkies if you want to eat one once in a blue moon also so hormones are affected by food and they’re influenced by aging and they’re influenced by metabolism so I hope that expanded your your idea on what a calorie is and then next time someone says everything in moderation well not if you are getting older now if you have a slow metabolism that doesn’t work and also portion control even a small amount of refined carbs and sugar can really block your ability to burn fat for a long period of time so this does not apply if you have problems with the hormone okay I hope that helped
This Post Was All About Why Low Calories Does Not Equal Weight Loss.
Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
Find Your Body Type:
Calorie is a unit of energy in food. Each type of food (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) has its own unit of energy.
Protein contains 4 calories per gram
Carbohydrates contain 4 calories per gram
Fat contains 9 calories per gram
You can see that fat contains more than double the calories per weight. Yes, the assumption is that consuming fat, which contains more calories will cause more weight gain. But what is rarely factored into this equation is:
The HORMONE piece of the puzzle. Remember there are 6 fat burning hormones and 3 fat-storing hormones and each set is influenced by different foods.
Insulin is the most powerful “fat-making hormone”. It will convert food into fat easily. It is triggered by:
*Sugar Carbohydrates (including grain carbs, fruit juice and starch carbs (potato, rice and corn).
Interestingly, fats are neutral and are not triggered by any of the fat-storing hormones.
Growth Hormone (GH) is the most powerful “fat-burning hormone”. It will trigger the fat-burning process. It is triggered by:
*Protein (small amounts)
To understand this more, we need to look at the purpose of these 3 types of foods.
Protein: needed to repair and replace many body structures (muscles, tendons, collagen, hair, nails, hormones, etc.). We constantly need protein to replace the body tissue. So our body needs a certain amount of protein, and this is why only excess protein is converted to fat. We recommend 3-4 ounces.
Fat: needed to repair and replace many body structures (the outer walls of all cells, mini-structures inside our cells, our entire nervous system, our entire skin, our brain and our hormones). Interestingly, there is a diet called the Ketosis Diet in which the person lives exclusively on fats and oils. I
SIDE NOTE: You may then ask yourself, why then don’t we apply this diet for people?
Because long term, it can cause problems. All the fat coming off the body can clog the liver and create a fatty liver.
*Sugar Carbs (including grains, starches and sweet fruits).
*Vegetable Carbs (vegetables which do not turn into sugars easily).
