Wait! I said youre the GOOD kind offat! Hey munchies! Welcome to the channel, Im Alyssia, and today Im going to cover a topic I havehad a LOT of is asking for: keto, or a ketogenic diet. And this is going to be an educational, objective, preparatory video illustrating what a ketogenic diet is, how ketosisworks, how its different from other foods, andto whom it might relate. As always I have to give my annoying rejections. I want it to be clear that I am not sayinga ketogenic diet is right or wrong for you, me, or anyone else. What is keto? Simply applied, a ketogenic diet is a diet thatslow in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high-pitched in dietary fat. Primarily, in the 1920 s, a ketogenic dietwas designed for patients with epilepsy to help reduce their seizures.The keto diet likewise tended to have positiveeffects on those cases person solid, blood sugar, cholesterol, and starve positions. It has not been studied widely in terms ofnutritional science, which is one of my main doubts with sharingit on the canal. But, after doing my own study, I do believe that what Ive learned is worthsharing because its quite fascinating. As you can probably tell by the length ofthis video, there is a lot of information so please bearwith me. And, if you really do want to learn aboutthe diet, watch the whole video because I dont want to answer a questionin the comments that Ive already replied to in the video.To understand the keto diet, weve got tostart from the beginning: calories and macros. Calories are vigour. Its important to recognize that weightgain and weight loss are complicated. Calories in and calories out is toosimple and not accurate fairly. Exercise is important for a healthful life, but it has minimum impact in terms of weightloss, while it does of course afford other healthbenefits. Burning 300 calories in a exercising doesntequate to burning off a cupcake. Nutrition is going to be about 90% responsiblefor changes in our torsoes in terms of weight. And, each type of foods metabolize differentlyin their own bodies. There are a lot variables. Thats why munching 2000 calories of fruit is not the same thing as snacking 2000 caloriesof goldfish.Macronutrients consist of protein, carbohydrates, and solid. ALL calories come from these sources, withalcohol as the exception. Your total calories for the day , no matter how many you snacked and what nutrition youfollow, equal 100%. Each of those macronutrients becomes a percentageof your daily pie, and the rate will often change based on thediet. You cannot have 100% of calories come fromeach macronutrient, well 300%. And because math exists, that time isnt possible.You CAN have an EQUAL number of calories fromeach food3 3.3% BUT fat contains MORE calories per gram thanprotein or carbs, so the percentage would be different in thatcase. A popular food you may have heard of on YouTubeis a High Carb, Low Fat diet, or 80/10/ 10. That symbolizes 80% of calories come from carbs, 10% from fat, and 10% from protein. Competitive bodybuilders often construct musclewith a nutrition thats highest in carbs and lowest in fat with moderate protein, and then, closer to their competition whenthey need to lean out, protein becomes the biggest macronutrientin their nutrition, be accompanied by solid and carbs. A ketogenic food, on the other hand, consistsof a nutrition that is around 70% overweight, a moderate amount of protein, and very littlecarbs, simply 5% to 10 %, depending on the personstolerance.Now, its not a strict rate, because itwill vary from person to person. We all have a different carbohydrate long-suffering and our insulin resistance ranks are different, which makes person or persons on a keto diet maybe able to eat more carbs than all persons on a keto diet, but stillbe in whats called nutritional ketosis. More on that in a moment. Now, I realize that this may sound very different from what most of us have been learnt aboutnutrition. When I first is known about a keto diet and thishigh-fat ratio, I was skeptical. I had always been taught that you dontwant to eat a lot of fat! But a keto diet serves differently thansome other common diets, such as a diet higher in carbs with less fatand protein that we are typically told is healthy. Its important to recognize from the beginningthat there is no right or wrong ratio, but there may be one that works better forYOU, and merely you can find that out. So, we know that calories are ga for ourbodies, but that gasoline can come from 1 of 2 primary informants: glucose, or ketones The main one that Most parties run offof today is glucose.It can be a great energy source for the brainand form and comes principally from carbohydrates. This is essentially a carbohydrate burning modesince glucose is a sugar. The second source of gasoline is ketones, or ketonebodies. Parties on a ketogenic nutrition are fueled by KETONES, rather than glucose. Ketones are produced when glucose stages descend, and the body has access to fat, either in the form of placed organization flab or dietaryfat. When people body exploits ketones as fuelrather than glucose, they find themselves in nutritional ketosis whichis like a fat burning procedure since fat is the fuel source. I’ll talk more about the benefits of ketosisin a bit.For any food, its important to have bothcarbohydrates and fatty for the body to function properly. However, its the amount of one relativeto the other that will determine your ga source, andone is not right or wrong. Now, if glucose is available to the body, it will use that FIRST, because its easy to burn up. If you devour a lot of carbohydrates, your bodywill use that glucose as its fuel root, rather than using paunches as ga. This is why carbohydrate intake must be LOWon a ketogenic food, and a keto diet is often referred to as ahigh-fat diet dietary fat needs to be prevalent fairly inthe body in order to produce ketones. Many beings accompany the word solid withthe fat on our figures, and are unfamiliar with it as a ga generator. Theres a lot of misunderstanding abouthow a ketogenic food makes, which is why theres likewise a lot of criticismsurrounding it.But, thats why Im trying to explainit now. Dont get me wrongour brains and bodiesdo need some glucose, just like we all need some dietary overweight, BUT glucose does not NEED to be the MAIN sourceof energy for a body to perform healthily. Glucose is one energy source, ketones areanother neither is right or wrong, theyrejust different. In fact, our predecessors may have lived ketogeniclifestyles without being aware of it.As hunters and gatherers, our predecessors atelots of nuts, grains, fleshes, and lower carb fruit like berries. This is often referred to as primal eating, and its a diet that was high in paunches andlow in carbohydrates. It likely resulted in ketosis and helped ourancestors endure from one meal to the next, because their bodies could store that fatas vigour. But, does that mean that they CHOSE to bein ketosis? No, they would have eaten whatever was availableto them, but the point is that it was a viable wayfor them to survive healthily, even if they didnt understand the sciencebehind it.When a lot of parties hear about primalor hunter gatherer snacking these days, they think of the Paleo diet. Now, is the paleo diet a ketogenic food? The rebut: it can be. On a paleo food, you can eat grass-fed meats, seafood, fruits, veggies, eggs, nuts, grains, lubricants, etcetera, but you cant eat cereals, legumes, refinedsugar, processed foods, and generally dairy and unwarranted salt. Now, most of that aligns with a keto diet, where one consumes more overweight and less carbs. However , nothing is strictly prohibited ona keto diet. The ultimate goal is a ratio of fattens to carbohydrates which likely means not spending many, ifany, grains, legumes or sugar regularly. A paleo nutrition limits only the TYPES of foodsone can eat, and not the macronutrient amounts. For speciman, there is no limit to fruitsor healthful carbs, and no minimum extent of fatties. A paleo nutrition has not always a ketogenicdiet, although it can be. Does that make sense? There are plenty of other diets that you mayknow of which CAN result in nutritional ketosis, theyre exactly not undoubtedly ketodiets.For speciman, the Atkins Diet is a low-spirited carbdiet, so its usually mistaken as a keto diet but its not. Its same, but there is a significantdifference, and it involves the one macronutrient we haventtouched on hitherto: protein. Both a ketogenic food and the Atkins Dietare high in fat and low-pitched in carbohydrates, BUT a ketogenic diet is moderate in protein, while the Atkins diet does not set a limitto protein intake.Why does this matter? We talked about how carbohydrates are usedby the body as gasoline in the form of glucose, and solid is used asfuel in the form of ketones. But, what about protein? Well, through a process announced gluconeogenesis, protein are also welcome to be converted into glucose. This makes, if someone wants to experiencethe benefits of a ketogenic diet and be in a state of ketosis, even if they are on a nutrition thats low-pitched enoughin carbohydrates, their protein uptake can hurl them off because too much protein will be processedby the body as glucose. On a ketogenic nutrition, just like with carbohydrates, the amount of protein one can consume willdepend on the person and how their body metabolizes different menus. There are still benefits to diets like these, that are lower in carbs and contain fattens, but lower carb is not equal ketosis, necessarily.Ketosis is a physical, biological processthat goes on in the body. Its brought on when the fat-to-carb ratiois just right high enough overweight, low-pitched fairly carbfor THATpersons figure. If there isnt enough overweight, or if there isTOO much glucose or protein, which we now know can be converted into glucose, the body will use that glucose instead andbe in a state of glycolysis, a.k.a. that sugar burning state. Weve established that a keto diet exists, but why would someone want to be in ketosis? Are there benefits of following a ketogenicdiet? Weight loss: In ketosis, the body is ableto burn collected fat, and insulin tiers are lowered since thereis less glucose in the body.Reduced craving: Since fatty is more satiating, people often dont get as hungryon a ketogenic diet, which can improve a persons relationshipwith menu. Mental clarity: Beings in ketosis oftenreport experiencing a stage of mental clarity that they dont have when fueled by glucose. Healing: Studies have also shown it can helpkill cancer cells, and help to treat or even reverse cognitiveimpairments like Alzheimers indications. Improved insulin status, abbreviated blood pressure, and improved blood cholesterol and triglyceridelevels. These assistances all came as a result of fat being thebodys oil beginning. So what types of fats are appropriate fora keto diet? Now, this may seem a bit strange or perplexing, because it will likely go against a lot ofwhat youve been told about nutrition. But, just stay with me. A ketogenic diet is high in solid and low-toned incarbs macro-wise, but most people who follow it also considerthemselves on a entire menus diet.They are eating lots of leafy and cruciferousveggies, grass-fed meat, eggs, wild-caught fish, dairy( depending on the person since it canbe inflammatory ), olive oil, coconut lubricant, grass fed butter, avocado, nuts, grains, and more! People on a ketogenic food would typicallyavoid the more obvious processed foods and cereals, but they might also bypassed some whole meat, such as sweet potatoes, quinoa, higher carbohydrate returns, legumes, etcetera becauseof their carbohydrate levels. These entire nutrients are still perfectly healthyfoods, they just wont help with getting into ketosis. Too countless carbs necessitates glucose is availableto the body, which entails it wont make ketones. For nutritional ketosis to happen, ketonesneed to be the accessible ga root. Its a lot of information to process! But you read why its so important to stayopen knowledge. Certainly, there is no such thing as goodor bad when it comes to health and nutrition because its all relative. Whats good for one mas can be differentfor another, especially when were running on differentfuel generators! Theres SO much talk in the nutrition worldabout fat, and saturated fatty including, being bad, but, again, this is relative.Everyone agrees that trans flabs are bad, becausethey are unnatural, man-made fattens. But, brand-new dietary investigate has caused somedisagreement over saturated flabs. Many things weve been told to avoid, likebutter and beef, can be a healthful part of our diets IF theyare in fact grass-fed and not handled. On a ketogenic food, parties are generallynot discouraged from devouring saturated fat in the form of grass-fed meat, grass-fed butter, healthy oils like coconut and olive oils, ghee, avocado, salmon and other fatty fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, and full fat dairy.On a standard low fat and higher carbohydratediet, many of these items are discouraged. Why is that? The AHA and some dated research claims thatsaturated fatty justifications coronary thrombosis, but its come to light with recent researchthat that agreement cant certainly to draw attention. Its most likely that inflaming causesheart disease than saturated fattens, specific if those solids are from wholefoods, and are healthful dietary fatties. Remember from the start of the video: you are unable have 100% of your total macronutrients. So, if you are going to include more fatsin your food, the only option is to lower the protein orthe carbs, regardless of keto or any other diet. And this is where it can get tricky. We see it running around now that fatis healthy and blah blah blah, but we are also told to eat quinoa. You cant eat one tonne of solid, AND a ton ofcarbs. Likely, this would just mean a person is consumingtoo much food in general. AND be borne in mind that solids are more calories pergram than carbs or protein, so LESS food contributes up promptly in your totalcaloric uptake needs.Theres a lot to be attentive with a ketogenicdiet, but it can have its benefits. So who might consider a keto diet? We already mentioned a few cases: People with a goal of weight loss. Some people who have contended with insulinsensitivity and/ or being overweight may find that a ketogenic diet employments reallywell for them because they dont have to deal with insulin. People trying to reset their passion centerand be more mindful of being full. So if youre on a low fat diet, or a lowfat and low-grade carb diet, or a high protein diet, and you think youre really hungry all thetime, youre not crazy. You actually ARE hungry. Your insulin is raised and it’s telling you thatyou need fuel.On a ketogenic food, without the glucose there, your form doesnt experience spikes in insulin and youre more likely to feel satiated. It may also help people with a goal of reducingblood pressure and concluding healthful cholesterol grades, or people looking for help with PCOS treatment, or those with neurodegenerative maladies. But, of course a ketogenic diet is not foreveryone. Its NOT appropriate for parties with conditionslike: kidney or liver canker, Muscular Dystrophy, gallbladder disease, gastric bypass, rare metabolic agitations, pancreatic paucity, those prone to kidney stones, Type 1 diabetes, blood sugar issues like hypoglycemia so for parties with nature 2 diabetes it dependsand theres conflicting responses, it is therefore best to get a doctor to supervise those who are pregnant, nursing, or who havegestational diabetes, and it also may not be a good thought for: people who have suffered from an eating disorder, people who have a history of mental healthproblems, children or beings under the age of 18, and people who are naturally very thin witha BMI of less than 20. And, of course, a general state screening is always a good suggestion to make sure theresno rare provisions or denials with your health or drugs on a ketogenicdiet. Because the nutritional discipline macrocosm is stillrelatively new, like I said previously, there isnt a ton of information on a ketogenicdiet. New dietary research is emerging that’s challengingour old ideologies about nutrition. But, despite this, the old research that demonizedfat and saturated fatty is still widely accepted. Most of what we know about ketogenic foods come from actual people who have articulated it intopractice in “peoples lives”. There is not enough existing research yet to start changing our old-fashioned approaches to nutritionin the medical world.A ketogenic food does go against much of whatweve been told about nutrition in the past few years, but the science behind nutritional ketosisis still new. But only because the research doesnt existin the capacity thats was required for all doctors to shape newconclusions, doesnt mean that this information isnttrue or that the lifestyle isnt an option. All consented forms of medicine today, at somepoint, started out as alternative medicinethat needed enough research to back it. For that reason, if you approach your traditionaldoctor about a ketogenic food, Im going to let you know up front thathe or she may just tell you to not do it.Now, I will never tell you to not listen toyour doctor, BUT I will encourage you to continue to doyour own research so you feel confident making decisions becauseYOU know your body best. Even if you dont feel the confidence rightnow, you do. If you feel intrigued and want to learn more, Ive associated some resources below, but please “re going away” and too do TONSand tons of research on your own. I do NOT recommend trying out a ketogenicdiet willy nilly. You should be able to FULLY understand howketosis makes and why before acquiring life reforms. AND remember that this is just an introductoryvideo to explain the diet, NOT an instructional video telling you howto start it. I dont want you to miss out on valuableinformation that you wouldnt have without make yourown study, like the stages of ketosis, the differencebetween ketosis and ketoacidosis, how to research ketone ranks, complements, saltintake, impacts on exercising, spray intake, etcetera all of these things which are really essentialto understand before uttering dietary changes.Rememberthe reason there is such a debateabout these different nutritions you cant do ALL of them at once, so peopletend to think that one is right or wrong. But NONE of them are right or wrong, and theyall work for SOMEONE, but they wont all works for you. Probably. We all need to stop with this this dietis right and this is wrong and solid or carbs are good or bad mentality. It depends on YOU and your body and what worksbetter with you. YOU are not me or anyone else, we are alldifferent. Our diet needs and what works for us willdepend on our genetics, lifestyle, ” activities, diet biography andso much more.So if someone get on the internet and claimsthat ANY type of diet or rate is THE one for everyone, be skeptical, because remember, they dont know you, or yourhistory, or your organization, or what you might be sensitive to. Even if you have no interest in actually followinga ketogenic diet, I think information is strength. It can help us to be more understanding of otherlifestyle choices, and knowing what it is and how it labours willonly construct you a more informed human. The more you know about your body and howit exertions, the more self-confident youll feel to obligate yourown selections is progressing. I hope that members can spotted this chapter useful.

Thanks so much for being a part of this supportiveand open-minded community, I genuinely do believe we can learn from ourdifferences.Ill see you tomorrow on my PIZZA channel, Ill see you right here next week, and remember, its all a question of MindOver Munch !.
