So this guy places his patients into a keto state, talks about how great it is and what positive impact it has on health, then puts them on a vegetarian, high carb nonketo diet.
Uhmm, doc you need to review your material.
Trust me people, don't do carbs, stick with keto and good fats. It's the natural state you were born in, it's what is best for you.
All correct, except that a plant based diet is garbage.
Eat Keto/Carnivore, and don't spew any BS in a reply that states animal products are harmful. You're an idiot if you think the diet humans evolved on for hundreds of thousands of years is bad for you.
I'm just coming off of a complete 21 day water fast as of today and what he's saying is not all true and wonderful, It was hell. Yes it is beneficial, but I got a really stinging headache in the first week and I felt Sooo weak and lethargic I couldn't really leave the house cause I had literally zero energy. I was light-headed and every time I'd stand you I'd feel dizzy, If I'd vacuum or mop or do any household chores I felt like I would completely over exerting myself and I live alone and have a clean home. Your mouth has this yucky film over it along with slim and it makes you spit all the time, I mean all day. I'd have to brush all the time, and you feel and look like your sick, and the cravings are through the roof, but the funny thing about is... you will crave the foods you see, but your not really hungry. Weird I must say. But by my third week I got severe hunger pains, that's why I stopped after three weeks. As for the benefits my blood pressure did go down, my depression did subside and I Lost 20lbs. But seriously! Don't try this unless you expect to be home though-out the duration of the whole journey. I will be coming out of my fast with steamed veggies and watery fruits.
The info was good then this klaper fellow was going on about a plant based diet. Chicken, cheese and olive oil was junk food in his opinion. Moron. He must be a vegan. He looks every day late 70's-84. He's only 71.
Thank God I have Esa/Jesus (May peace be upon him) in my life too 😊 and Thank God Muslims fast and 'PRAY' like Esa/Jesus (May peace be upon him) too 😊😊 .
Let that latter sentence sink in my Christian brother .
I have a support worker that tells me I should eat anything I want all day everyday , I sometimes only eat 2 times a day mainly once a day because if I eat more than once I feel tired and slow , if our ancestors ate a maximum of a few times a week that's why they had very little to no health problems , I fast over 16 hours a day and my blood pressure is normal and I have great skin ,I live off water , tell people in america to fast , even Australia has a weight problem, my doctor also told me I should eat 6 small meals a day which is impossible , my doctor which I'll be getting a new one needs to understand why and how we evolved , I'm sure the body can go a few days with out food before re feeding, but on a serious topic , I feel great eating less than 3 times a day , seems to me when people get older they have weight problems
Yeah, people actually opine that you'll be dead in a week or so from fasting - like fasting instantly equals starving. You think we have to be designed better than that - to slow down, to seriously conserve energy when we're not eating for days. Lower core temperature - probably sleep great.
Here we go look we are not cows or similar we are human and it is a known fact that we lived on meat and fat until agriculture come about. I am not saying avoid veg altogether but to only eat veg is absurd we are not designed to eat plant food that's why a cow has more than one stomach. Constantly eating plant food will give you all sorts of inflammation If you don`t believe me google it.
yeah, people discovered the power of intermittent fasting after they started to eat more fat (and meat, shock, horror), became more fat adapted and realized you didn't need to eat first thing in the morning and could go a good long time if you didn't eat sugar, grains and fruit all the time.
True regarding fasting but you don’t have to become vegetarian afterwards. As long as you don’t eat processed foods and avoid carbs you’ll feel great. I broke my 7 day fast into 1 meal a day keto diet, which some times (after long periods of keto, say 2-3 weeks) becomes LCHF or even carnivore or paleo for a week or so, and then back to keto. Works really well for me - incomparable levels of energy as compared with when I ate carbs (western diet).
There are no studies about the effect of fasting in women. A few studies done on female vs male rats suggest that fasting is not as beneficial for women as it is for men. The overall conclusion was that fasting was actually detrimental to the female rats. The object of the studies was not the weight loss, but the health benefits - both female and male rats lost weight.
Could you please shed some light on this? Thanks.
I've been doing keto for a year now lost plenty of weight and the beginning of this month DEC I've started doing intermittent 20(hours fasting) 4(hours eating) most of the week. I like working out fasted I didn't do it before because I thought it wasn't good but its perfectly fine. Days when I want to do 24 hours fast is really no problem for me. I'm getting great results in my workouts and loving the health benefits.
Fasting helps with promoting autophagy and can fix many health problems BUT people who have bad health problems should consult a doctor first because their problems may be irreversible and may in fact cause more issues.
If a person just eliminates the obvious pasta bread junk food .. eat a couple of meals a day in the afternoon .. you don't need a plant based diet. . ive seen many unhealthy cows that lived off strictly plants
I’m at the 30 hour mark. I can deal with the hunger, but my third day will be Monday and I’ll be working Monday. I’m a little worried I won’t be able to focus.
He said you only start burning ketones after day 4
I don't think it's for everyone. I started fasting because I was obsessed with my weight and I took it to the extreme. It affected my school life, my relationships and generally led me to more unhealthy eating patterns. I still haven't manage to balance out my diet and I've actually gained weight after doing all of this..
"Drink water from thine own cistern" Now Im not a Bible thumper but this is quote from the Holy Bible aka Helios Biblios aka Sun Papers or Book related to fastin. With than being said a cistern is a vessel used to store water. Now when you know what it is and you know what it means it means exactly this and you can quote me "When you fast youre supposed to drink YOUR OWN URINE" and nothing else. Yes I know it may sound odd but when you think back to when we were all in our mothers womb and do a little research on the benefits of urine therapy and urine fasting you will find this to be true and exact knowledge.
Nice video, totally agree. I also recommend distilled water. It pure water and will make fasting much more comfortable by removing toxins much faster. I started drinking distilled water 5 years ago, and have never felt better. And don't forget to fast!!!
How about just listening to your body and letting it tell you what it needs? Somedays I do not eat until evening-why? I'm not hungry. Sometimes I eat in the morning etc etc...If it was up to me I'd never eat, but my body sees something in it. It's a lot of money wasted, eating, IMO. Food's expensive, especially healthy food
+Netheryk 'unless you are trained against it in some way' some mysteriousg way, like IDK, with your mind ? by listening to your belly say, 'that's enouh, chief', we don't need anymore no matter how good it tastes or smells'
sounds like fat people excuses to me
+PorkFrog Not really. The body can release ghrelin which is the hunger hormone. It goes up for example before eating, or when seeing food unless you are trained against it in some way. Even if you are pretty much full the ghrelin will be released.That's just one example in which way the body lies to you.
Your body isn't always trustworthy. If you listened to your body only then you'd end up being fat. You need to realize when too much is really too much and your body isn't lying anymore. And when your body is just lying.
I was 1.80 m and 113 kg when I started to counting my calories maximum 2500 kcal per day and intermittent fasting 16:8, lost 4 kg or 4.5 kg in 17 days, 108.9 kg.
I have Skulpt chisel for measuring my fat and muscle quality, Eufy scale and Nokia body plus for weight and fat measuring, and Yes there are big changes.
I want to make blood analysis after 1 month.
Also I go to gym and training in fast and take Bsn syntha 6 protein, and Usn pure 1 protein, Animal stak cycle with Animal mstak, amino acid, vitamins from Optimum nutrition, Omega 3, L carnitin, Pre workout from Rich Piana and TF7 labs Poison and Virus, Antioxidant, sustain liver, I. think that's all.
It is true, in the first 2 weeks, 1 month you loose more water than fat. Also I try to eat 30 to 50 carbs, 150 - 250 grams of protein, and 100 to 110 grams of fat.
