New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with You ARE Eating When You Are Fasting?
so I always get this comment that when you’re fasting you’re starving okay but it’s not true you actually are eating when you’re fasting your cells are eating its own fat they’re being fed not from the diet but from your storage so the only time fasting is starving is if you go way too long and you used up all of your fat and you have no more fat left so then the body is gonna start eating up its muscles but that would take a very very long time so the average thin person is walking around with about a hundred thousand calories of fat on their body that should last them for a very long time so fat will give us glycerol and fatty acids and these two will turn into ketones but certain parts of your body can definitely run in fatty acids in fact 60% of the fuel used when you’re fasting is fatty acids so it can use that and as far as the brain is concerned two-thirds of the fuel can be ketones and one third will be glucose now this brings up a question wait a second I thought we can run our whole body and ketones we don’t need glucose not true we do need a small amount of glucose one third of the brain needs glucose the red blood cells need glucose in certain parts of the kidney need glucose however there is something in the body called gluco neo Genesis where the body can make its own glucose and where does it get it from well you can get it from glycerol which is part of the fat breakdown as far as ketones can give you 10 grams of glucose each day recycled lactate which is a different type of fuel you can get up to 40 grams of glucose a day from that your organs can generate up to 80 grams of glucose per day and lastly alanine which is an amino acid from your muscles can provide up to 15 grams of glucose now realize this would only occur if you run out of this because when you do fasting your body protects against the loss of muscle only very small amounts of muscle is used for fuel and that would usually occur over a period of time so you don’t have to worry about losing your muscles if you’re especially doing in a minute fasting or if you have enough fat to actually use as your fuel now after 30 hours of fasting you will completely deplete all of your glycogen which is the stored sugar and your liver so now the only glycogen you have is in the muscles and certain other organs but that glycogen can be made from these sources right here it does not have to come from the diet our bodies are very well adapted to this and especially the brain the brain doesn’t even have to develop new machinery for burning ketones it already has it ready so if you just increase the ketones in your blood it will take that as priority it loves ketones and it thrives on ketones so the significance of this alone tells us that our body is very well designed for fasting and intermittent fasting and it does very well on that it doesn’t do good on the frequent meals and the snacks through the day and I just wanted to create this video to let people know that your cells are actually eating when you’re not eating thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

Many people think that when you’re fasting, you’re starving. But, you ARE actually eating. I’m going to explain more about why this is in this video.
When you’re fasting, your cells are eating their own fat. They’re not being fed from your diet, but they’re being fed from your storage.
The only time fasting is starving is if you go too long and you’ve used up all of your fat. If you have no more fat, at that point, the body will start using up its muscles. But that will take a very long time.
Fat gives us glycerol and fatty acids, which turn into ketones. About 60% of the fuel your body uses while fasting is fatty acids. As far as the brain is concerned, two-thirds of the fuel can be ketones, and one-third will be glucose.
The body does need a small amount of glucose. However, there is something in the body called gluconeogenesis, where the body can make glucose.
Where does the body get glucose from?
• Glycerol – 20g of glucose per day
• Ketones – 10g of glucose per day
• Recycled lactate – 40g of glucose per day
• Organs – 80g of glucose per day
• Alanine – 15g of glucose per day
Our bodies are very well designed for fasting and intermittent fasting. There are a ton of fasting benefits, and the body does will on this. But, the body does not do well on frequent meals and snacks.
