KETO DIET Does low carb and intermittent fasting really work for weight loss?

Hey everybody, it's Chris Gibson and today we are going to talk about weight loss, fad diets, or one of them in particular, I'm going to be covering several of these over the next several episodes, but today we're going to talk about what I call Keto Crazy, and that's the Keto diet, which is basically a diet that is designed to have your body to switch over from burning carbs and sugars as energy and not your fat cells, or the fat that you have put away in storage, to burning that fat So the questions come up, what is it? how does it work? is it healthy? I'm going to give you a link in the video description box to an article that's going to explain in detail how the diet works and if you're going to follow this type of diet it has really good instructions on what to expect and what you can do to lose weight using the Keto diet

But basically from my perspective, from a health and wellness perspective, it is a diet that works, I will tell you that If you follow it, you will lose weight, you will burn fat I have done similar diets to it in the past, never for a long term, sort of to boost my weight loss, especially when I go back into weight training or any kind of workouts that I'm going to be doing on a regular basis, I do tend to lower my carb and sugar intake, almost to nothing for several days The trick to this diet is for some people in a few days they begin to notice a difference, some people it takes longer And because it "messes with" or changes the blood profile for a lot of people and it has impact on the liver, it is something that you really need to think about before you try to use it

I'm a big idea person about balance, about long term decisions, about long term changes, equal long term affects A lot of fad diets, people go on them for a while, they get maybe close to where they want to be or maybe they get where they want to be and then they are right back there were they were with the same old habits So one of the key things I'm going to be talking about, as we move forward is how to change habits, and make them life long changes that don't feel like you are imprisoned or giving anything up There are ways to do that But basically how the diet works is you remove sugar and carbs down to less than 2 grams which is you know, not a lot of carbs

Some people say 25 grams, but basically you can have no more carbohydrates than in 3 slices of bread, or a half a cup of yogurt, something like that Sugar free even So you are removing all of that, and all you're taking are proteins and fats, and it's very high amounts of fats So what does the body do with that? Well at first the body has a little bit of a they call it Keto flu believe it or not The body has a little bit of an adjustment phase to go from burning sugar and carbohydrates, which it makes you crave over to burning proteins and fats And so, after a few days, and we'll use this in a general sense because it's different for everyone, and there are test kits that you can purchase and tell when you are in ketosis, which is when you are actually switched over from burning sugar and carbohydrates to fats But basically when it makes the switch over, then your fat cells begin to supply the energy for your brain and your metabolic system

So you're now burning fat, you're burning the fat that you are eating, but you're also burning fat that you've stored So rapid weight loss does happen with a lot of people with this especially at first Now believe it or not, the rapid weight loss that people experience in the first several days of the Keto diet have more to do with the expellation of the carbohydrates through water Basically what your body is doing is it's depleting your carbohydrates, your blood sugar is coming down, you're producing more insulin and you are actually expelling more water, so even fat when fat is burned, the fat cell is burned and destroyed and used up it leaves your body as water So a lot of water weight goes out the first three to five days, so people see you know, 2, 3, 4, 5 pounds weight loss in a week, and that's a lot of weight loss

Then it sort of tapers off The trick to this diet is that you have to be very very strict because the minute you reintroduce sugars, carbohydrates, anything like that, fruits, any of those things that turn into carbohydrates, the body switches back So the tough part about the diet is to sustaining the discipline of the diet, which is again going to be in that link that I provide you in the video description box to make that work Now is it dangerous? Yes and no They have used this diet on children who have seizures, epileptic seizures, quite successfully and it's made quite a difference in them

They have used this diet with people who have Type 2 Diabetes which has helped control their blood sugar problems Again those situations are where a persons body is already having a problem and we are doing something to kind of change the chemistry and change the working order of what the body is doing in order to give it an affect This is for weight loss, so you have to be very very careful If you take it too long and you take it too far it can make you sick You can get ketoacidosis which is a problem where your body has produced so much of the ketones from the Keto diet that you are on, that it could no longer switch back to the carbohydrates very well

So you have blood sugar spikes, People can have liver problems There have been some deaths attributed to this but I think that is in the most severe case So what you have to do is weigh what your goals are If your goal is to jump start your weight loss, and it is to try to redefine your diet, then taking all of those things out like sugars and even some of the dairy products, you know and taking out this isn't Atkins, I'm going to go over the Atkins diet, it is a little different, it allows more carbohydrates, but in the Keto diet, it's very high fat, high protein So the thing you have to mind is if you're, again, trying to jump start things and you're going to do this for a week to two weeks to kind of jump start your weight loss, it's great, there's nothing wrong with it as long as you don't feel anything going on that's negative Now I will say you need to check with your medical professional, whether it's your doctor, you're whoever you are using, to make sure it's ok for you to go on a diet in the first place because everyone's health is in a different level So what I'm telling you is, does the diet work? Yes

Is it effective? Yes Is it dangerous? In some cases, so you'll want to go see your doctor to make sure it's ok, that they know what you are doing and can monitor you for the changes that are going to be coming to your blood profile and your liver, they want to keep up with that So it is an option, it's not one I would choose, but it is an option for you As we move forward, I'm going to be talking about other options that I think are better, but a lot of people I know, a lot of my friends are on this diet and it's been effective for them, and they haven't had any problems so I have to give it kind of a B, B+ for effectiveness and safety So if you have not subscribed to the channel and you are interested in learning more about these diets, please do so, so that you get the notification when I put the videos up, there's a little notification bell if you aren't familiar with YouTube, that you click and it will send you an email when these are up
