What is ketogenic diet?
-The Ketogenic Diet is a diet that is most often used for medical reasons to treat children with epilepsy, but it is also a regimented diet program that aids in weight loss.
-The diet is a high fat, high protein and very low carbohydrate program.
How does ketogenic (keto) diet work?
-The ketogenic diet (often termed keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets.
-It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
***I DO NOT recommend simply replicating my diet. You should devise a diet that compliments your nutritional and dietary needs as well as activity & training. Seek counsel from a physician or licensed nutritionist before beginning any restrictive diet. Also, not shown are post-workout shakes and small calories snacks that I may have enjoyed.***

I will be 60 next december
My body has gone to h-‘l
I would like to get rid of flabby arms
Some fat on tummy and
Definately back fat
I eat well
But my sciatica leaves me unable to work out
Can i get rid of all that stuff with keto
Lol why is there never a video of a fat person reviewing the does? It's always physically fit people in these videos and a bunch of people in the comment section claiming they lose a bunch of weight doing these diets yet don't post videos of themselves in their little weight loss journey. I smell a bunch of bullshit. Might as well be a Herbalife video.
I tried it and all strength and endurance disappeared. I think if your on steroids its a good way to get the vacuum look, but if your not juicing its gonna get you thin but not stay strong with that puff to your muscle. I think muscles look better plump. Its not for me. If you like hard heavy workouts for 30-45 min then keto is gonna destroy you. If youre working out hard you wont need it anyways.
Great perspective! I've lost 121 lbs on keto in just 7 months, and my friends and family are losing weight with it now too! Did you know that keto flu is optional?? You don't have to experience it. It happens because the loss of water weight takes electrolytes with it. It's not really keto flu, it's electrolyte loss. Just up your potassium, magnesium, high quality sodium (like pink himalyan salt), and calcium.
I love you taking about your struggles! Keto concerns me, because of all the saturated fat most people consume on it. I should say as a permenant lifestyle change. As a temporary thing to help lose weight makes sense to me. Do you have any thoughts on all the fat clogging arteries and such?
I'm keto and love it. Keto flu is avoidable. You just have to make sure you get in your sodium from himalyan pink salt, potassium, magnesium and electrolytes. 7-10 cups of greens a day. You def can eat berries yummy.
Started today. I don't cook but you inspired me with those keto meals. I made the stuffed roasted pepper. :) it was good. Different, it felt super healthy. I did it before but fell off the wagon after 2 months. Trying it again and also going to the dr to get a full checkup. Thank you!
Great video! Few things I have learned doing Keto: 1. Those strips are not reliable, they only show the ketones your body isn't using. 2. To prevent keto flu take magnesium, potassium (supplements) and sodium (Himalayan pink salt) you need more than you'd think, Gatorade won't do enough (pickle juice is better). 3. Instead of full cheat meal per week have 1/2 a sweet potato or banana once a week to stay in ketosis. 4. Fat Bombs are the easiest way to kill a sweet craving and to get in enough fat (SO delicious!). 5. Extra protein turns into sugar in the blood and can kick you out of ketosis ( spontaneous gluconeogenesis) so be careful. :)
So you went a caloric deficit diet, when you upped your calories (bacon/butter) you gained weight and when you removed the calories you lost weight. So this had nothing to do with keto, this had to do with a caloric deficit that was easy to maintain because you enjoy fats.
you are actually retarded to think our body uses one energy system at a time. Our body uses three energy systems 1) Pcr (one rep max) 2) is what you mentioned glycolysis (this is for sprinters) 3) oxidative phosphorylation (endurance marathon training). Ketosis is a body survival mode that is not optimal. Otherwise our bodies would have ketosis as a natural source of energy if it were to be the most efficient. This thought that you have to burn through your carbs before you can touch your fat is stemmed from this stupid simplification of the bodies process. You burn your carbs mainly through glycolysis and then you burn your fat through oxidative phosphorylation AT THE SAME TIME. Depending on your exercise mode and intensitity the ratio of energy systems you rely on are different. In fact, there have been studies that have shown high carbohydrate diets, when you control for calories, cause you to lose more weight. The studies that the atkins foundation are based on made the High carbohydrate group only have 60% of calories from carbs--that is by no means high carb. These keto and paleo diets promote very poor health and thats why we have 40-50 year old fit men dropping with heart attacks at the gym.
SNORE turns every night into hell. Almost all families suffer from snore of the one of spouses. Men snore more often. But the origins of women's and men's snore are the same.
I have been testing various treatment methods for four years and have personally felt their effect or, better to say, lack of any effect. As a result, I developed my own technique.
And only after I've got convinced of its effectiveness, I wrote this book.
I would like to thank my wife. Her persistence helped me find the way to overcome snore. It was not so easy.
Follow my recommendations. Avoid the key factors provoking the snore. And you'll feel the positive result at once.
My book is devoted to family couples. To husbands and wives. It is the wife who can promote the husband to take care of his health and nice sleep for the whole family.
Show my book to your husband. You can get rid of snore!
My best motivation was the words of my mother-in-law in the heading who said my father-in-law has never snored thanks to his little secret.
And I have no secrets from you.
A full description of training is found in the book "Snore or One guy used to have it and now it is gone, so it will go away in your case too"
The book is published in Russian, Ukrainian and English.
Please go to my site nehrapi.in.ua there is all the information.
You can and should get rid of snoring. I checked the method on my own, it works!
The keto diet coupled with consuming less calories doesn't make you lose weight any faster than the normal method of just consuming less calories. You will lose the same amount of fat/muscle/water weight as you would if you ate normally. Yes 1 gram of carbs roughly 2.5g of water weight so in theory eating less carbs will inherently make you hold on to less water weight which is completely different than fat and muscle which are denser and so take more effort to lose which will happen if you are in a calorie deficit. You could do like me and eat anything and everything to meet your macros but do cardio for 45 minutes 3 times a week which will force you to be lean and therefore give you similar aesthetic results to being on the keto diet.
hey brotha , i have a quick question , im taking a whey protein supplement since i lift , its by Optimal Nutrition , it contains 2G Sugar /24G Protein /2G Carbs , will that still keep me on Ketosis ????
When I decided to lose weight but didn't know which diet to follow, I went about doing some research and then I learnt that almost every single diet works by temporarily putting your body into a state of ketosis. In this state, your body burns fat for energy instead of burning carbs and protein. So I tried out the Keto Diet by requesting your FREE COPY of BACON & BUTTER. Grab a copy now while supplies last and guarantee that today is the FIRST DAY toward a future where you’ll be eating delicious, flavorful meals all while reducing your carbohydrate intake, burning fat, improving your health, and increasing your energy. I was lucky enough to come across the BRAND NEW “Bacon & Butter” Ketogenic Diet Cookbook. It's 100% Absolutely FREE! FREE! Just click or paste the link http://bit.ly/2CCBV9D
you story sounds just like me!!! you just got a new subscriber!!! I'm gonna have to look into this diet, I'm exactly at 190 lbs. and I feel just like you did in the beginning - I'll have to watch this some more and go into this direction for spring!! Thank you!!
Ive been keto for about 4 month
Love it so far but i do for sure have my cheat meals so for those out there on the fence give it a try its worth it
Ps i already was at my goal weight so just tryed it for fun. Tryed to bulk on keto as well and couldnt put on the weight
Replenishing electrolytes daily is key to ward off keto flu. When I initially started I didn't suffer from it. However, I fell off during the holidays. When I started again I got the keto flu BAD! I started taking a supplement for the 3 important electrolytes, magnesium, potassium and the biggie, Sodium. Started drinking 1 cup of bone broth to replace collagen and get sodium in. drink a cup a day. Not just during your flu, but always. I make my own in my instant pot. Otherwise you can buy it. No iodized salt (table salt). Use Redmans
"real salt" or pink hemalyan salt. Add cream of tartar into your water for potassium. Your potassium level is important for working out. If you cramp during your workout your deficient in potassium. If you cramp after your workout your deficient in magnesium.
Because high cholesterol and high blood pressure runs in my family, is there any adjustments I should make if I were to approach this diet? I’m already dabbling in Intermittent Fasting, and I’m trying to find good healthy fat sources that don’t spike up the bad cholesterol
you should consider carb cycling. I've been doing loads of research and it seems that when you get your body accustomed to going into ketosis , carb cycling or keto cycling as Dr. Axe calls it is successful as your body already knows how to hop into ketosis so it doesn't take DAYS to switch like when you're just starting off... I hope I'm making sense. Check it out and decide for yourself. Thanks for sharing your experience! I'm really excited to try this myself.
I may have watched this video at least a dozen times and every time I think you’re going to say you squeezed lemon juice in your eyes to curb your sweet cravings(don’t ask). Would you recommend this diet for someone who needs to jump start their fat loss journey?
As a woman I liked the the first pic better my husband looks like the first pic and he's always trying to get abbs , so ya bro don't worry about the details. Oh and just so you know that little extra is good for you, if there was a food shortage you want that extra meat to keep you breathing..
