In part one, we covered the benefits of lowering insulin, fat burning and autophagy.
Part two will cover a list of food and drinks people can or cannot have while fasting and their effects on insulin, ketones and actual weight loss. (Start the video at the 6:50 minute point)
Here is a list of food and drinks and we are looking at insulin, ketones and actual weight loss.
Coffee. Coffee is going to have an insignificant effect on insulin. There is hardly any carbs, protein or calories. It will have a zero effect on ketones, weight loss or weight gain. If you consume a tremendous amount of coffee with all the caffeine it could increase cortisol and activate insulin. Stress can make you fat because stress mobilizes your own protein, which then will be converted into sugar, which then could raise insulin too.
Are you on the ketogenic diet, and want to know how to get your spouse on board?
First of all, it helps to realize there are many different viewpoints about keto. Your spouse might not have the same perspective that you do. I recommend healthy keto, but they might be mentally rejecting it. So, first, find out what they want to accomplish. Is it weight loss, lowered inflammation, more energy, or focus? Keto can provide these results.
So, focus on results, keep it easy for them to implement. They need a win! So you might not want to jump right into the healthy keto version. You want to make it easy and comfortable with the foods they’re used to eating, but without the carbs. If we look at the difference between healthy keto and dirty keto, the macros are exactly the same. Low carb, moderate protein, high fat.
