Why Do You Need To Do The Ketogenic Diet And Intermittent Fasting At The Same Time?

Here are some benefits of doing the Ketogenic Diet:

  • you lose weight
  • your blood sugars now are regulated
  • you have better mood
  • you have improved cognitive function, focus, memory concentration
  • you have less inflammation
  • you have decreased cravings

The common thread between doing the diet and doing intermittent fasting (IF) is that you have a lowered glucose and you also have lowered insulin.

But there are some very unique additional benefits that occur with fasting. When you do fasting you create an epigenetic effect. Epigenetics means above genes.  So if you were born with bad genes or you had a gene that triggered a disease, those genes could be controlled epigenetically.

  1. Effect on your genes. Fasting creates an effect on your genes that turn off the bad genes and turn on the good genes.
  2.  

2. Autophagy.  Autophagy is like getting the junk out of the trunk. All the dead cells all the damaged proteins in your body get recycled and turn into brand new cells. This is why you look younger when you start doing IF because you induce autophagy, which does a lot more than anti-aging but it’s just a cleaning process you’re recycling garbage through the body. That way that garbage doesn’t sit there and create inflammation and a lot of a lot of bad things.

Hungry. Why You Can’t Last Three Hours Without Food And What You Can Do About It.

I can’t go longer than three hours before I am starving!  I’m hungry and I need to eat!

What this means is you have a serious blood sugar problem.

An average thin person is carrying around about 100,000 calories of fat on their bodies yet we only have a very small amount of stored sugar.  It’s called glycogen. It’s in the liver and it’s in the muscles.

So we have about only 1700 calories of stored sugar and a tremendous amount of stored fat.  The problem is we’re not able to tap into this fat because we have a blood sugar problem.
