More specifically, you want help with Why You Get Sleepy After Eating Protein?

hey I have a question do you ever get sleepy after we protein if you do this video is for you okay so let’s talk about the conditions first so excessive amounts of protein now what is excessive mean about a pound of chicken wings right that would be too much a large huge twelve ounce steak but sometimes when you go to a restaurant the portions they bring you especially when you get to meats are quite large okay they’re huge actually it can go up to twelve ounces to fifteen ounces crazy I recommend sticking with about three to six ounces because anything more it tends to overload the liver however if you’re a big guy if you’re active if you’re younger and you’re 18 you could probably get away with a lot more protein but just realize that if you go too much it’s going to make you go to sleep because it’s going to raise blood sugars okay so excessive protein is one number two low fat proteins the lower the fat in the protein like whey protein for example some of the other protein powders the higher the insulin spike now if you’re consuming whey protein it’s not necessarily going to convert the fat it will increase insulin it could make you more tired especially if you do a large amount so here’s what happens when you consume low fat like protein like whey but you’re not doing a lot of it it will stimulate insulin from the pancreas but there’s another hormone that it will also trigger called glucagon and what does glucagon is it’s not sugar it’s not glycogen it’s not glucose its glucagon okay that’s a hormone that opposes insulin and it’s triggered typically when you’re not eating or it’s triggered by exercise or it’s triggered by eating protein okay so if you’re triggering insulin and glucagon it’s a lot better than just triggering insulin because you’re going to counter some of the bad effects from it okay you’re not going to get fat because this is a fat burning hormone so what’s gonna happen the whey protein will be driven into the cells the insulin will help it go in there but here’s the thing we don’t want to keep triggering instant too much because it’s going to create insulin resistance so we want to keep it low do I recommend whey protein powder no I don’t it’s probably the least damaging of a lot of different proteins but the problem is that it’s a kind of a refined product and it’d be much better if you had more of a natural protein that comes with in nature which comes with more fat and that has a lower insulin response okay so now the next thing is protein with carbs Wow when you consume a burger with fries a burger with a bun burger with ketchup you greatly enhanced insulin and this is where you’re gonna want to take a nap okay so start like protein and starches like potato not good meat potatoes not good I was raised in the Midwest we did meet Mateos 24/7 so that’s why I’m doing the seminar right now because I had a lot of body problems back then okay so we want to avoid that and then low stomach acids if your stomach is not acidic enough maybe you’re getting older and that’s why it’s going down maybe you ate junk food for a long period of time and that weakened your acids and the way that you know that you have low stomach acids is that you have indigestion bloating gas heartburn acid reflux GERD that means you need more acid okay that’s going to help the digestion of protein if you’re in a low salt diet for example sodium chloride the chlorides are needed to make hydrochloric acid so people that are low salt dies for a long period of time typically have lower stomach acids then they start getting problems digesting proteins in general so the problem with the stomach of not being able to digest protein is that you’re not going to have the raw material for the building blocks to replenish all the body parts but again if you’re getting tired after consuming protein then look at these reasons why if you’re getting tired after consuming carbs we know it’s just insulin and if you get tired after eating fats that can be an overloading of the gallbladder as well or the liver alright so thanks for watching I will see you in the next video hey thank you so much for watching keep spreading the word and share this video

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

Take Dr. Berg’s Free Keto Mini-Course:

In this video Dr. Berg explains what are some reasons you get sleepy after eating protein. The reason would be excessive protein and too much meat. I do recommend smaller portions because a lot will raise your blood sugar. Lower the fat in protein will trigger the insulin from the pancreas but it will also trigger another hormone that comes from the pancreas called Glucagon. Glucagon does balance the insulin and is a fat burning hormone, but you don’t want to have too much insulin because it will cause insulin resistance.

A typical way to get sleepy would be protein with carbs such as meat and potatoes and you want to avoid that combination. Lastly would be low stomach acid and you would know if you have it by getting heart burn, indigestion, acid reflex, bloating and gas. This means you need more acid to help with the digestion of protein.

Glucagon is the opposing hormone to insulin, which is triggered by moderate protein, intense exercise and low carbs.
