Keto Kung Pao Chicken – Chinese Keto Chicken | Keto Recipes | Keto Meals and Recipes

Welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com As I've mentioned before, my mother was a European trained chef, so we had many wonderful European meals

But when my mother wanted a night out she always asked to go to a Chinese restaurant because she really loved Chinese food, and since that time I have long enjoyed going to a Chinese restaurant for lunch or dinner However, on a keto diet, going to most Chinese restaurants is not a possibility, because of all the non keto ingredients that are often part of a Chinese recipe To satisfy my current craving for Chinese takeout dinner, I'm making this keto version of kung pao chicken, which is based on a Szechuan region recipe The macronutrient ratio for this recipe is 19 to 1 with 6

8 grams of total carbs, 16 grams of dietary fiber and 52 grams of net carbs Since this is a stir-fry, it's very important that all your ingredients are prepared and ready to fry before starting

Also, cut your boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite-size pieces I'd say about 25 centimeters or 1 inch cubes and then place your cut cubes into a large mixing bowl Add the salt, white pepper, tamari, and toss everything well to coat the chicken evenly Then add the Chinese Shaoxin cooking rice wine, but if you don't have this wine or can't get it, just substitute with dry sherry

Add The egg whites and toss to mix well Now allow the seasoned chicken cubes to marinate for at least 30 minutes Toss the chicken every once in a while so that the top pieces also get marinated well While the chicken is marinating, it's time to make the sauce In a bowl, combine the salt, Lakanto monk fruit sweetener, tamari, or if you prefer coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar and water

Stir well and set the sauce aside When it's time to begin the stir-fry, you can use either a wok or large frying pan Whichever you choose to use, place the dry pan or wok on high heat When your pan has been heated thoroughly, add the oil Swish or brush the oil so that the entire bottom and side of the pan is well coated

When you see that your oil is sizzling, add the marinated chicken cubes and all the sauce that's in the bowl Let this fry for about a minute and then toss continuously for another minute or two Toss and fry so the meat is about 50% done Actual time will depend on the size of your cubes Then, when you determine your cubes are about 50% done, scoop the cubes out of the pan and set them aside

Don't be tempted to over fry the chicken because you think it's still raw: The chicken will be placed back and have more cooking time later Next, add some more oil, then add the re-hydrated, prepared chilies Reserve a few of the dark green onion parts Add the green onions, ginger and garlic Fry until these ingredients become fragrant

For me it was about 1 or 2 minutes When you can smell the wonderful aroma, add the prepared chicken cubes and toss immediately for about 30 seconds At this point you have an option: you can choose to add raw cashews or peanuts Stir the sauce and then pour it over the meat Toss everything to combine well

After the sauce has coated the chicken, also add the powdered gelatin which will be your thickener At the very last moment, add the reserved green onion, toss once and remove immediately And that's all there is to making this amazing, flavorful, Szechuan keto kung pao chicken It's best to serve the chicken very hot That doesn't mean that it's not delicious the next day as well

What I'm trying to say is when this is first made, and it's just fresh and hot, it's really flavorful and all the aromatic ingredients are at their very best I hope you try this flavorful, Szechuan version of the keto kung pao chicken very soon Enjoy, thank you for visiting my channel and watching this video Please turn on your notification bell See you next time

Keto Nutrition and Long-distance running, featuring @antigravitygains!

Today I'm gonna be talking about running long distances and how to train for running long distances, with a very special guest, starting now Hey guys, welcome to A

D Keto My name is Aaron This is the channel where I talk about the ketogenic diet I do some keto food vlogs, I do some keto recipes, and I talk long-distance running

If this is your first time here, please consider subscribing, and if you do, be sure to click the bell icon so you get a notification whenever I upload new content So guys, today I wanted to talk about training for long runs Now, I've been a runner for a while I've run long distances before I did a marathon back in 2012

I was on the Standard American Diet at the time, and had a really, really bad time with it Felt just awful But I have signed up for a race in October It is the same marathon that I ran back in 2012 It's the Mohawk-Hudson Marathon, here in the Albany, New York area

But I'm gonna do it this time fat-adapted, and I'm very excited So I wanted to get the perspective of someone who has done long, long runs, and ultras There's a buddy of mine on Instagram and YouTube His name is Dave Basile, also known as the Phat Phuelled Phenom, also known as @AntiGravityGains You can check out his YouTube channel, right up there

Super- awesome dude I first heard him on Keto for Normies He was on one of the first few episodes there, and we connected on Instagram, and hit it off He's actually a really super cool guy, and we share a love of the band Ween, so major points to AGG But I asked him if he would come on the channel and talk a little bit about his experiences — how he prepares for runs, how he did prepare for runs when he was on the Standard American Diet, and how that differs to how he's preparing for his Ultra, now that he's fat-adapted

Nutrition is a really curious thing when you're fat-adapted, and running — I go out on the weekends, and I can rip off of 13 miler, a half marathon, without any fuel I can go out fasted, go 131 miles, and be fine But beyond that, I haven't really experienced any longer runs than that I will be ramping up my my distance as I train for this marathon, but I'm curious as to what Dave has to say about nutrition, and how he goes about fueling himself for those longer distances

So I asked him if he would come on the channel He said , "Sure dude!" So here is Here's AGG! [AGG] BuenosTardesAD

Keto Hola, my good keto friends What's up everybody? It's Dave here, AKA P3 – the Phat Phuelled Phenom! Reporting to you with Aaron at AD Keto

Man, Aaron, I got to tell you, I'm so happy When you invited me to be on your YouTube channel for this episode, and this topic, how to prepare for a long-distance race, running race, you know, before keto and after keto, you just like opened this door Those two things go together so well, in my experience, at least, anyway, and many ultra runners out there that use a very low-carb type of meal plan They're a perfect match You know, a low-carb way of eating, and living, and endurance athletics

I just they're meant to be, in my opinion So here's some of the misconceptions

Here's some of the things, my experience before using the ketogenic diet as a road runner You know, especially because I was into mainly road-type races I got into I've been kind of, you know — active my whole life, on and off Although a lot of my 20s and 30s were very slack in that regard, but you know, definitely since the year 2007, I've been really consistent with running Long distance running I just love it I really rediscovered my passion for endurance

you know, running, and it's just been that way ever since Now I didn't get into the ketogenic diet until like, July of 2016 So it's been nearly two years for me, but

So there's a lot of things I experienced before the ketogenic diet, as far as running, and some of the things, you know, I'll go over Like one: there's these carb-ups You know, even in the sugar-burning, carb- centric community, they still have something called carb-ups

You may or may not know A lot of runners tell you, "Man, make sure you get a bunch of pasta in, you know, the day before the race, or two days for two days in a row, before the race

" So there's that A lot of them will tell you, "Make sure you eat breakfast before the race Man, you got to wake up, GOTTA eat breakfast" Okay And then the other thing that's common is, "Make sure you have these GU packets

Make sure you you know, stop at the aid stations, and you indulge, and you eat you know, whatever they got there Whatever works best for you — bananas, GU packets, M&Ms, whatever!" Those are some of the main things, and how they prepare before the race Now for myself, I'll tell you, you know, personally, I followed some of those things, but I felt like I did it because I was compelled Because the consensus was such that I was supposed to do that, you know? But I discovered intermittent fasting, back in

I want to say around 2011, and I was kind of doing self- auditing and that for that aspect of things, and I discovered, you know, I just don't like eating all the time before my workouts, even with weight training I didn't like it And it's I just didn't find it necessary, but you know, fifty percent of the time, I probably take in a banana, or half banana, and a half a granola bar, just because I felt like I better hedge my bets, here

Because the community says this is what I should do, so I mean, I was rebellious enough to not do it all the time, but just really confused and conflicted about it, so there was that And I will say, I wasn't one of these people that had to stop at every port-a-potty, but I did

it was a gamble There were times I had some really bad experiences with my gut, out on my longer training runs, or even during a race But I've known people that

I mean, it's like chronic It is a gastrointestinal freakin' nightmare out there for them, and it's not a good thing I mean, there's a lot of runners that fight this thing that are carb burners, and if they just get off the carb-centric diet, they probably

they they'd love the ketogenic diet, just from that aspect, regardless of running, okay? But you know, so that's gone for me, and I will talk a little bit about after Now how do I prepare foryou know, something like a 50k, or a marathon, right? Part of the benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle is that you have a lot more energy stability, and with it goes mental clarity

You don't have afternoon crashes Your focus can be a lot better, and things like that I've found that is the same thing for me during the middle of a long four-hour training run, or a long six-and-a-half hour race I'm able to really hone in, stay focused "What's my mission, here?" and stay focused

So you know, after getting into the ketogenic type of eating plan, you know, carb-ups are just not needed They're just not needed I mean, they're not needed at ALL, in my opinion I'm not saying that you know, you shouldn't do them, because I actually have experimented with them, and found them useful But I don't think they're needed You can maintain a low-intensity, steady state you know, heart rate, and that Maffetone Zone, where it's like, 180 beats per minute, minus your age And that would supposedly keep me in that aerobic heart rate zone, to where I'm not like, dying to get to glucose You know, to use this energy I'm able to use

you know, fat stores pretty effectively, and I found that to definitely be the case on the ketogenic diet So you don't have to use carb-ups at all the day before the race, or even at all Second, you know, using a fasted start, just like I said, it worked for me, even before the ketogenic diet

And it definitely works for me you know, after being into this ketogenic diet you know, I I go out and work fasted, workout fasted all the time, I go out, I lift weights fasted at all time, I go out and runyou know, four-hour runs fasted, even without any calories, you know, without any food during that four-hour training run I've done many two, three, four hours, even on up to five hours, training without taking in any calories, other than some incidental calories from the electrolytes, from my Nuun tablets No food on many long-distance training runs and races, you know? Electrolytes are very, very important on the ketogenic diet You probably know this already, whether you're exercising or not, even more so in my experience, I've discovered that electrolytes is a game

it's a game in and of itself You want to really pay attention to your body I highly recommend you get into salt sticks

They're like salt pill tablets, or salt tablets I take 'em with me in my my vest, you know, when I go on long-distance, very long runs If I'm going something for more than like you know, like four hours, I'm going to take those and my electrolyte tablets, and keep on top of that But I will say, as far as preparing for like a race, one thing I do, or even preparing for like, a four-hour training run, what I've been doing here in the last few months is a couple days before, I'm like, "Okay, I'm going to take a little bit more electrolytes than I normally do anyway

" You know, with all the foods I eat on the ketogenic diet, I get a lot of salt anyway, but I'll take some of those Nuun tablets, you know, at least once or twice a day, starting a couple days before my very long training run, or my my race that I'm doing, I find that that really helps a lot It's kind of like, 'prevention is the best medicine'-type of mindset, you know? And again, I don't have any real science to back that up I just have my n=1 experience to share with you, and I find that helpful You can over-hydrate, too, though, you know, whether you're a carb burner or a fat burner I mean you can over-hydrate, so you just want to kind of drink to thirst, basically, during your runs

But electrolytes on the ketogenic diet, we don't retain all that water and along with it, salt, like you would on a carb- centric-type diet, so I think as far as the ketogenic lifestyle goes, you definitely want to be on your electrolytes game After being in the ketogenic diet, you know, I've noticed with my running, the energy stability and reliability is just it is awesome It is great I cannot preach enough about how much I love it, how predictable things are compared to how they were before the ketogenic diet, and that's the other thing I want to say is: If you're brand new to the ketogenic diet, and you're active, please take note, and as a takeaway, know that your workout intensity and amount of time that you're able to workout and things like that — it's probably going to take a hit, at least a few notches I'm not saying you should not work out at all — that's up to you, but just please, be cognizant that you're not going to be bringing your A-game for probably the first week or two, or even three

At least I noticed, especially with the weight training for me, I noticed that with running, too, but for the first couple of weeks, but not as much as the weight training intensity So know that with energy stability going, you know, some of your energy level going down in the beginning is not you know, a hallmark- type of characteristic of the ketogenic diet, because it's quite the opposite

Once you get through those initial stages of adaptation, your energy is going to be so freakin' awesome You're going to love it And especially for your your your race day, if, you know, if the stars line up right, you've prepared, you've got your nutrition game going, you've stayed keto, you're fat-adapted many months you know, ahead of time, you know, you're not out there trying to sprint this whole freakin' race, you know, your energy stability is gonna be great, in my opinion That's probably what's gonna happen Now that doesn't mean there's gonna be days where that doesn't happen I've had a couple training runs where, for whatever reason, maybe I'm

my electrolytes are off, or i think sleep is a huge thing That's something I'm really trying to hack this year, to try to correct and improve upon, because I think sleep is probably more important than anything, honestly But that's another topic

But something like poor sleep for days leading up to a heavy training run, you know, a race, can really negatively affect your outcome on race day Keep experimenting with things you know, and hopefully that helps, but um I will say afterwards, though, that you know you can

you know, ketosis isn't something that you have to be in all the time I think the idea with being fat-adapted is that it's to know your body knows how to use fat has its primary energy source, but also, our bodies know how to use glucose You know, unless we have metabolic damage and other things we're fighting medically, you know I'm saying aside from something like that, our bodies know how to use glucose, and they know how to use fats After we get fat- adapted, we now know how to use fat

That's the primary energy source But it remembers how to use glucose, so when you get into high gear, it's gonna know how to useyou know, glucose

So if you want, you can experiment with something like a targeted ketogenic diet There are ultra runners out there that use a very low- carb, fat-adapted way of eating, but they also sneak in some carbs, you know, on those very, very long runs under these people are running 50 miles, and hundred miles, but you know, if you're getting out there for a very, very long, multi-hour run, you might want to experiment

Hey I'm not gonna have, you know fifty carbs today, 25 net carbs today ,I think I'm gonna have like 75 or 100, and see how that affects me on my long training run, two days down the road, you know? But I would not suggest you do some carb up with terrible carbs like donuts, or anything like that You might try different carbs that maybe you perceive you might be a little bit more tolerant of, you know? Something like brown rice, or sweet potatoes, or something like that

And I would not go real heavy on it the night before I would do it two days before, and then just kind of take it easy, and go moderate, or little carb again, very low carb the day before, because your your energy stores will be, and your

your you'll have the glycogen two days before, and it's not like it's all going to empty out, you know, in 24 hours, you know? Just kind of maintain, you know, what 30 carbs again, you know, the day before And then you still have this from two days before, and then on your long training run day, you can see how that

you know, works for you, and don't be afraid to put it in high gear, and you know, blast those downhills and get your heart rate up, and see ifsee what that does for you You know, I also think says you know, do your own experimentation with that, and I have found that I've been able to do that kind of thing, and get back into ketosis, you know, set up parameters to where, hey Dave, you know, you're gonna do this, but then right after that training run, or that race, you're going to get back into strict keto and you're going to recover And that's the other thing I'll say about this — I can't I know I'm all body language here, but one of the greatest benefits about being a fat-adapted athlete is recovery

Recovery I mean, I've had I'll tell you what, here's an example

On my 50k, about a month ago, it was muddy It was miserable But I did great, and I did target in some carbs That's a whole another thing You can check out my YouTube on that, but the amazing part about it was it was one of the easiest recoveries That doesn't mean I wasn't sore at all, but I was fine I ran the next day

I did a nice, long, one- hour session on my treadmill I kept it very low-intensity, but it was active recovery I had a little bit of tightness in my muscles I mean I ran for six and a half six hours and 45 minutes, you know, for 31 miles in the mud, okay? But it was one of the easiest recoveries I've done on an ultra distance marathon, so experiment around with things Just know that if you get fat-adapted, the greatest benefit, and the takeaway is that you're probably a lot more metabolically flexible Sure, lose the weight, that's a bi-product of the ketogenic way of eating, but your energy stability and your your cleaner form of energy to use as its primary energy source of fat, that it's just so much better than recoveries Just

it's everything for me I love it, especially as you get older So I hope that helps

I wish you all the best luck in your goals, and also be forgiving to yourself if you slip up with your way of eating That's okay Just hop back on The same thing goes with your training calendar We have busy lives

If you don't get that 18-mile run in on Saturday, and you only do a 16-mile run on the following Sunday instead, it's okay You're going to be okay Get the time in on your feet Do some training, get some elevation training on the treadmills and Stairmaster, especially if you got a very hilly race coming up, and be kind to yourself And whatever you do, no matter what, somehow, someway, go out there and make some anti-gravity gains! Guys, check out Dave's channel over here, it's Anti-Gravity Gains

Check him out on Instagram He's awesome We have a blast over there, and dude — looking forward to continuing hanging out with you on Instagram and YouTube You are definitely an inspiration So thanks again for coming on! And that's gonna wrap it up for this video, guys

I really hope you enjoyed it I hope you have a fantastic day, and I'll catch you next time! Antee-gravity gains or anti-gravity gains? Hmmm Antes or anti? Not quite sure I think I'm an anti-gravity antee? No It came out Antee I think I'm an antee-gravity gains Anti-gravity gains

Antee-gravity gains? Anti-gravity gains Should I keep talking about it?

Crispy, Sweet and Spicy Hot BBQ Chicken Wings | Keto Chicken Wings | Keto Recipes | Paleo Wings

Welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com This will be the first of several videos that will feature oven prepared crispy barbecued chicken wings

In this video, I will show you a step-by-step demonstration on how to cut and prepare the wings and how to make the rub and sauce for my sweet and spicy hot barbecue wings The macro nutrient ratio for this recipe is 18 to 1 with 22 grams of total carbs, 03 grams of fiber, resulting in 1

9 grams of net carbs Before I forget, please preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius, or 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and measure out and prepare your ingredients for the dry rub as well as for the spicy hot BBQ sauce Now let's begin, and I'll show you how easy it is to cut the wings into drums, flats and tips The easiest thing, of course, is to just purchase the chicken wings already cut into drums and flats, but I find in my local grocery stores these pre-cut wings are substantially more expensive I buy the entire wing instead

As you see, the wing has three parts each section has a ball and socket joint I begin by making the first cut between the tip and the flat part Next take a hold of the drum section and cut the skin to reach the joint bone Use your knife to gently feel where the joint is

When you locate the correct spot, it's really easy to make a cut with very little pressure It may take a few tries to get familiar with this cutting process, but after just doing a few wings, I'm sure you'll feel quite comfortable in cutting up your wings Just be careful when you're using a sharp knife because the wings are a bit slippery, but save and store the tips in a freezer bag and keep in your freezer until needed These tips are great for making soups and bone broth because the tips contribute a great deal of collagen So don't throw them away

Also, carefully pat dry the drums and flats before seasoning with a dry rub Now let's prepare the dry rub In a small bowl combine a very finely ground salt, black pepper, paprika Whisk these dry ingredients well to make a very homogenous mixture, and then set that aside Now place the chicken wings into a deep mixing bowl

Sprinkle about 1/3 of the dry rub over the wings and toss carefully, then sprinkle another third, toss again and then apply the last third Coating with one third of the rub at a time will allow for more even distribution of the rub on the wings Continue to toss until you see that the rub is very evenly distributed over the drums and flats The even distribution of the rub is absolutely essential in order that your skin has a crispy deep-fried texture I'd like to reassure you that you won't be able to taste the baking powder at all, after your wings have been roasted in the oven

Why we add the baking powder is because the baking powder reacts with the fat and the chicken skin, and the resulting chemical reaction creates a nice crispy texture, which is very close to that of deep-fried chicken wings, without all the hassle of deep-frying, so please take a bit of time when applying the dry rub because this step, in my opinion, is what makes this recipe amazing Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil if you haven't done this already in the prep step Lining makes it easier to clean up because the dripping sauce and fat are really sticky Place the rack on top of the lined baking sheet and arrange the seasoned wings on top of the wire rack Having the wings on a rack like this allows for the heat and air to crisp up both sides

Otherwise if it's on the sheet, one side will be soggy Place your baking sheet and a rack into the middle position of your oven The total baking time will be 40 minutes, But, for the first part, set your timer for 20 minutes After the 20 minute mark, flip each piece over and place back in the oven, then set your timer for another 20 minutes After 40 minutes of baking, the wings should have a deep golden color and the skin should have a nice crispy texture, and don't be tempted to over bake because even the most fleshy wings don't have a lot of meat on them

And you don't want your wings to be hard and leathery While the wings are in the oven, it's time to make the sweet and spicy hot barbecue sauce I first make the caramel or maple flavored simple syrup In a small pot placed over medium heat, I add the water, sweetener and caramel or maple extract, then stir and cook at a light simmer until your simple syrup begins to look a bit thicker Then I poured the hot simple syrup into a bowl and roasted sesame seed oil

Immediately add your hot sauce, apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar Stir continuously, so that the ingredients combine very well, and the simple syrup does not crystallize, and then leave it out on your counter until your wings are done When the wings are done, remove them from the oven and place into a large mixing bowl Pour the sauce over your oven roasted wings and toss until the wings are well coated with your sweet and spicy hot barbecue sauce Based on my raw weight of the trimmed chicken wings, each serving is about 10 ounces or 284 grams

This quantity may seem excessive at first, especially for a keto diet, but remember the weight of the wings also includes the bones The total weight you are actually eating is about 5 ounces or 142 grams of actual meat and crispy skin These wings are very spicy hot with a balance of sweetness that is well complemented by serving them with a cool dipping sauce such as a ranch dip, lemon or cilantro dip or even my keto tzatziki I hope you try this recipe very soon Enjoy! Thank you for watching

Please share this recipe with your friends, and I hope to see you next time The link for the printable recipe is available in the description below

From a former potato addict to not have french fries or potato chips mashed potatoes and gravy ahhh 500 days without them and you know what? I'm feeling amazing! I wanted to remind you where I started so let's check that out right now So this is what you get

This is me, pretty overweight right now as you can see, with this and this but you know there's a lot going on here if we look at my back which I can't see now Oh oh yeah there we go there's some nice back they might be having back pain my body's just hurts all the time so there we go that was my starting place I was 2035 lbs 435% body fat and you know what I was miserable I wasn't happy at all and I decided to wake up one day and start the ketogenic diet after doing about a month and a half worth of research when I decided to start My macros were 1400 calories, 20-30 net carbs, 75 grams of protein, and 110 grams of fat Let's check out how I look today This is me after five hundred days following the ketogenic diet

I have also been working out with the trainer now for four and a half months three times a week it's more I'm kind of bruised from it actually It's more a crossfit style training, like I said three times a week and occasional yoga class So this is how I look this way and from the side I am starting to get ads I feel like I'm getting like thick, thicker from the middle but not in a fat way but more just like a strong way Let me show you my back the same way I did before is that possible to do this? Alright cool so that's my back um I'm starting to get sort of a align in through there if you can see that like, my I work out my abs a lot so anyways that's that I mean this is never gonna go away I'm okay with that but yeah my body is getting a heck of a lot stronger and no plans to stop keto anytime soon This is my newfound muscle and I find that maybe from that angle you can see it better and I don't know I don't know where I'm going to be in another 500 days but I'm willing to push and find out where I can get you so yeah there you go there you have it so that is how I look today I'm definitely feeling a heck of a lot better I lost 60 pounds in my first year of keto so I would have been the first 365 days I haven't been weighing myself recently but I haven't really changed in my weight at all that's because when I hit one year of keto I also changed my macros I decided that losing fat was not a priority to me anymore

My priority had switched to building muscle so at the advice of my trainer I started eating 400 calories more so my macros changed to 1,800 calories 20 to 30 net carbs still 100 grams of protein in a hundred and thirty seven grams of fat so I wasn't expecting to lose any weight because I am trying to build muscle I will go and do a body pod scan at my six-month mark to make sure that I actually am building muscle or if I need to start making any additional adjustments that I'll do so here is the picture comparison that you've been waiting for I can honestly say that starting the ketogenic diet was one of the best decisions I have made in recent years I have completely turned my life back in the direction I was looking to do and even more so because I was never into fitness before and I have never challenged myself the way I have been recently anyways if you are thinking of starting the ketogenic diet make sure to check out my website wwwiamketoincanadacom where I have a beginner's guide you can purchase if you are looking to save time and need some support along the way thanks so much for watching my video make sure to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel have a great day

Dr. Stephen Phinney: How do keto and Virta affect heart health and cardiovascular risk?

This is a very relevant question because we just had a new publication come out today in Cardiovascular Diabetology that really focused on this So we had published maybe two months ago now, we had published the one year Type II diabetes outcomes

We showed that A1c improved We showed that glycemic control was better, insulin resistance was better, weight improved And in this paper we really focused on all the different risk factors around cardiovascular disease – And that's important because in the diabetes paper published two months ago in Diabetes Therapy, we noted that although a whole group of diabetes-associated risk factors got better, one of the more controversial changes is that the LDL cholesterol level in our patient group as a whole rose slightly but statistically significantly We felt it was important to take a much closer look at the full range of heart disease risk factors

And that is what's encompassed in the peer-reviewed paper that we had published just today and can be accessed through our website – Yeah, so to give kind of a brief overview of what we've showed in that paper, Steve mentioned the rise in LDL and LDLc in the group on average, but there are a few markers that some researchers believe might be a better predictor of cardiovascular risk or at least equal to LDLc So those are LDL particle number and apo B Those two markers statistically were unchanged at one year in our cohort of patients And then, we also looked at the particle size

Some believe that small, dense LDL particles might be more atherogenic than the larger particles And our small dense LDL particle number actually significantly decreased at one year And the whole, the particle size of all the LDL particles increased at one year So in terms of looking at the whole picture of risk, we certainly saw that increase in LDL that a lot of people get concerned about But when you put all of the markers together and consider the whole risk profile, we're definitely getting an improvement in a lot of different risk factors

And we still are concerned about LDL, but we see a lot of improvements in other ways – Understand that the test that we use to measure LDL particle size and number is a new test, it's not universally available It's a predominantly a research-based test And there are a couple of different ways that these can be analyzed, and the medical practice community has not arrived at a, kind of a uniform recommendation for these values So this is a research test that we did

And it may not be available to the average person through their primary care physician For instance, I saw my physician a few weeks ago and asked, and I get my health care through Kaiser Permanente here in California, and I asked if they could run a LDL particle size and number for me and they said "no, we don't do that" But, it's important that other factors that we did look at, such as HDL cholesterol, which is so-called good cholesterol and triglyceride values, then those are part of a standard lipid panel When the ratio of HDL to triglycerides goes up, that is, you have more HDL relative, proportionately to triglyceride, that is correlated with an improvement in LDL particle size and number So, again, we've looked at, I think we had 18 different cardiovascular risk factors in this current paper, and those were included in that

So the point is, this is a very complex area, it's an area of active research But what we want to provide is a broader perspective of all the parameters, rather than focusing in on what we have with the cholesterol-diet-heart hypothesis where the focus for a couple of decades has been just on the LDL The true picture is much more complex than that and we want to get into some of those details – Sure And there's evidence even to say that the picture is more complex from that, from the Imbarac trial, because they put people on STLT2s

They saw LDL go up but they saw cardiovascular mortality decrease – Dramatically, yes – 38% I think, maybe So, there's definitely something to say where there are other factors at play, and it's not all about one lipid marker in terms of cardiovascular risk So we'll find out someday

– So before we get into specific questions, do we wanna talk about the range of risk factors? – Sure – That we looked at, responses such as hypertension, inflammation – Yeah I think also when we're talking about different risk factors and looking at the whole risk profile, inflammation is also an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease Many consider it or hypothesize it be an under, potentially an underlying cause

So we looked at a few broad markers of inflammation in this study, we looked at high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and white blood cell count And both of those dramatically improved The CRP response especially was pretty astonishing at one year And then blood pressure as well, blood pressure significantly increased, and the really cool thing– – No, it actually decreased – Sorry thanks, improved, decreased

So blood pressure decreased, so it improved And because of this we actually had to de-prescribe medications for the patients because they didn't need the medication anymore So that's a really unique finding too – So a lot of patients moved from the hypertension, borderline hypertension area to normal blood pressure with a reduced total medication use in the population Which is a very unusual finding, 'cause usually the way with standard medication treatment for hypertension you have to give more medications to get better control

– Sure – We got better control because nutritional ketosis and the Virta treatment that embraces and supports that is such a powerful metabolic tool – So, that's a little bit of a recap on our cardiovascular risk factor paper that just came out today in Cardiovascular Diabetology You can go to our website virtahealthcom/research and you'll find a link to that paper there

And then we'll have certainly more information coming out from Virta tomorrow about that

Spicy – Cheesy Broccoli and Riced Cauliflower – Low Carb Keto Casserole

Welcome all! Papa G here Today I present a wonderful side dish to help spice up your next meal

My spicy, cheesy, low carbohydrate broccoli and rice cauliflower With just a little over three net carbohydrates per serving, it's the perfect complement for any low carbohydrate entree Let's get started I'm gonna take the easy way out I'm gonna take the easy way out here and use some [re-riced cauliflower and pre-cut broccoli If you're using fresh vegetables, you'll need about two and a half cups of riced cauliflower and about three cups of bite-sized broccoli florets

Give that a mix When the butter is fully melted, add some xanthan gum Whisk until the xanthan gum is fully incorporated We'll season our sauce with some salt; ground black pepper; a healthy amount of onion powder; some garlic powder; a little dried mustard powder; basil; sage; and finally some cayenne pepper Give that a whisk to mix in

Bring the sauce to a small simmer, then reduce the heat to low and add about one and a half cups of shredded pepper jack cheese Whisk until the cheese is fully melted Add the cheese sauce to the vegetables and mix thoroughly until combined Add the mixture to an 8 by 11 inch casserole dish and top with some finely grated cheddar cheese Place in the middle of a preheated 350°F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes

Keto Birthday Haul and a Channel Update!

Hey, guys! Today's video is gonna be a quick rundown of my Keto / YouTube birthday haul, as well as a little channel update So that's starting right now

Hey, guys! Welcome to AD Keto My name is Aaron This is Sophie

This is the channel where you can watch a weird dad work his way through the ketogenic diet I do some keto food vlogs, I do some keto product reviews, and I do some keto recipes If this is your first time here, please consider subscribing, and if you do, be sure you're on notification squad by clicking the bell What is this? This is the stuff up with which I have to put Hi, guys

How are you? So your boy is 44 years old I turned 44 last weekend, and wanted to show off some of my Keto / YouTube related birthday haul Yeah, it was it was a nice day It started off with the kids giving me gifts I got this from my boy Peter, this Iron Man bobblehead And it broke immediately after I took it out of the packaging The connection

it's kinda like a little clear I don't want to touch it, because it's really fragile, but it's got a little like a little clear base that's got a really narrow and thin connector to his back So I tried to SuperGlue it for a good half hour

It didn't work So I ended up taking one of Caroline's hair tie things, wrapping it around a bunch of times, and eventually got him to stick to the base So he's levitating there as he should be So that was from Peter My son Will

My son William got me the new Decembrists record These are not keto items These are things my kids got me

"Everything is Awful" is my favorite track And then Caroline got me this lovely thing It's you know, a daddy-daughter sort of aw Look how adorable

So that's super-nice So that's from the kids And then my wife Sara got me a new immersion blender My old one croaked This one is from Greville, and I was so excited to use it to make my bulletproof coffee for the first time

In the past, I have brewed coffee straight into a mason jar, added my butter, added all my stuff that I add to my coffee, stuck the immersion blender straight down in, blended it right in the mason jar, and drank it right from the mason jar This new blender, however, did not fit I tried to use it as I did my old one, and it just wouldn't fit in Luckily, it comes with this behemoth guy, so I've just been brewing coffee into this, which works Just an extra step, but it's worth it

It's got like an adjustable like, an adjustable dial there You can crank up the power of the horsepower on the on the speed of the blender

Good stuff My in-laws got me this hydration vest, which I'm very excited to try out I've never used one before My friend AGG, AntiGravityGains, Dave, reviewed one over on his channel I don't know if it's this one, but he reviewed one right up there

This is the AONIJIE? I'm gonna say? It comes with this cool you know, bladder, to put in to two liters of water,some electrolytes in there, it'll keep me hydrated on long runs

And then my mother (love my mom) got me this This is actually the copy that Matt and Megha sent to me They were nice enough to send me one of these before it came out, and my mom, not knowing that they had done that, ordered me another So I'm gonna have one here on the shelf, and I'm gonna have one oh sorry, T'Challa And I'm gonna have one upstairs, and ready to cook with

So that was very exciting She also got me a big old Gimbal A handheld camera stabilizer from Zhiyun It's a Zhiyun 4 I played around with my buddy Scott's handheld gimbal, the Zhiyun 3, when we were down in New York City together a few weeks ago

It comes with a charging cable, it's got a battery in the handle, too Do people think you rock a mandolin when you're carrying that thing around? I don't carry it around, so I don't know what people think It was cool, but I could tell that I wanted one of my own to break I came very close to breaking Scott's expensive toy So sorry, dude

What? That's not arriving until I think the 22nd, or something Anyway, lovely day We went up to my brother-in-law's house He and his wife and daughter made a lovely meal However, my sister-in-law freaked out — she called like an hour before we went up, saying "Oh my god, I put brown sugar in the in the marinade for the chicken!" She was all worried

I was like, "No problem — I've got a ribeye that I can cook here and bring it up We're good to go" So that's what we did I also we needed something to put a candle in Or candles in I ended up using Good Dee's Mix — chocolate chip cookie mix, and I was planning on making cupcakes But I got in touch with Deana on Instagram, and I said, "Can I use these in cupcake tins? This chocolate chip cookie mix?" And she said, "No!!!! Make one giant cookie

" So that's what I did — made one giant cookie I was able to put my candles in it, good to go It was delicious I ate 7/8 of that gigantic cookie, and then had a couple drinks A couple gin and seltzers, and was feeling mighty tipsy by the end of the night

So very, very fun birthday I also checked in on YouTube a couple of times last Saturday to see that my views had mysteriously rocketed, like six times what they normally are And I was like, "What is happening?!' One of my videos from six months ago that I did, one on statins and cholesterol, took off I don't know if it got posted somewhere I have no idea what happened, but the views went through the roof

I got gained like a thousand more subscribers over the last week, so welcome everyone who's here based on that video I've got another cholesterol- based video right up there

It's me doing the Feldman protocol So check that out And I wanted to thank everybody, because I'm as of this recording, I'm up around 7100 subscribers, which is mind-blowing I can remember getting my first 100 and thinking, "Wow, that's a lot" But 7100?! Thank you I appreciate you guys watching I'm gonna try to keep the content coming for you guys

This is a fun thing for me to do It is I'm gonna put a poll up here, see what kind of videos you guys like

These ones, where I'm talking to you in this studio – to camera, are super easy for me to do It takes me less than a day to put them together Very few creative decisions are happening It's just kind of me talking, and then putting it into a project and editing it, and exporting it The other videos that do well for me are these

are my full day of eating vlogs, which I haven't done in a while, mostly because I'm so busy with my nine-to-five It's been very hectic at work lately, and those take a lot more effort to put together — planning out what I'm going to eat, shooting it, and then editing it with music, and making it not boring So I'm gonna try to do those as often as I can

I just apologize that I haven't had those out as regularly as I would like, because they're just a little bit more work to put together And three kids, two cats, what you saw — they're all over the place So gonna do those when I can Hopefully soon So that's this video

I just want to give you an update of how my my last week was 44 is kicking butt so far I like having both digits be the same I liked when I was 11, I liked when I was 22, 33 44 is off to a good start so far

55 will be good and now I'm just rambling So guys, I appreciate you subscribing, I appreciate you watching Hopefully we'll keep doing this for a long time

So that's gonna do it for this video I hope you have a fantastic day, and I'll see you next time
