These side effects only happen during the transition phase. If you push through it, you can receive amazing health benefits. If you start the Ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting correctly, these symptoms should not be a big problem.
We will hear from Dr. Raymond Francis and Sam Tonkin For Mail online.
Raymond Francis, D.Sc., M.Sc., RNC has been called a “brilliant advanced thinker” and has been cited as “one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease.”
Raymond is an internationally recognized leader in the field of optimal-health maintenance and a pioneer in transforming our failed disease-care system to a true health-care system. He is a chemist by training, a graduate of M.I.T., a bestselling author, and a world-class speaker.
He has written five breakthrough books, the international bestseller Never Be Sick Again, Never Be Fat Again, Never Fear Cancer Again, Never Feel Old Again, and The Great American Health Hoax.
Toxins and Lack of Nutrients Cause Weight Gain – Raymond Francis
Depending on how much alcohol you drink, it can block fat burning for two days or more and most alcohol has added carbohydrates.
A carbohydrate is only four calories per gram and that will block your weight loss and that will block your ketosis. Ethanol, pure alcohol, has seven calories per gram.
Ethanol does not spike the insulin directly.
It is not stored in the body.
It has to be removed by enzymes made by the liver.
The body considers it a toxin. It is highly oxidative (it creates a lot of stress in the liver) – it also causes inflammation that could lead to cirrhosis and a fatty liver.
It BLOCKS fat burning. If there is alcohol in the body, it is going to stop burning the fat and it switches focus to clearing the danger situation through the use of enzymes.
Your entire metabolism is going to be focused on getting rid of that alcohol not burning fat.
So depending on how much alcohol you drink it can literally block that burning for a day two days, even three or four days since most alcohol has added carbohydrates.
Most people do not just drink pure ethanol (alcohol); they drink beer, wine or other types of alcohol with a lot of sugar in it.
If you research the recommendation for drinking alcohol and all the benefits of drinking alcohol our government will tell you to drink two drinks per day if you are a man and one drink a day, if you are a woman and they will tell you that you will actually benefit the cardiovascular system.
Recently there has been a new recommendation based on another look at some of the studies that are already out there and they found that the benefits from alcohol actually are not there.
In fact, it will increase your risk of death.
Why the switch? When you see government research, realize that it is not as independent as you might think. They usually partner with someone who is helping fund the research and they actually partner with the actual industry that is related to that research. Realize that an alcohol-producing partner will not pay for research that says alcohol will increase your risk of death.
There are no health benefits from ethanol. It will knock you out ketosis for days. If you are going to drink do not do it frequently and realize it slows down your progress.
Dr. Berg suggests you consume alcohol without the added carbs (sugar added drinks and snacks). If you do you would be knocked out of fat burning for less time especially if you are not going to overdo drinking.
Dr. Berg is a chiropractor who specializes in Healthy Ketosis & Intermittent Fasting. He is the author of the best-selling book The Healthy Keto Plan, and is the Director of Dr. Berg Nutritionals. He no longer practices, but focuses on health education through social media. He has taught students nutrition as an adjunct professor at Howard University.

The benefits of fasting are amazing – especially if you can do a 72-hour fast. Most people will need to build up to a fast this long by starting with a 48-hour fast. It’s a good idea to do a 48 or 72-hour fast periodically – maybe once every month or two.
The benefits of fasting on the immune system have to do with growing a new immune system.
The main cells in your immune system are the white blood cells. Your immune system is also made up of friendly bacteria known collectively is called the microbiome or flora. Those microbes help you in many ways from absorption of nutrients, to recycling of bile, to immune defenses. They’ll make it so there’s just not enough space or food for a pathogen to live.
Our white blood cells actually make enzymes to help break down and kill microbes and pathogens. Our white blood cells generate mucus and inflammation and these pathogens get caught up in this mucus web, it’s like quicksand.
Our immune system has a memory. When there’s a microbe that actually comes back into our body, the immune system actually tags it because it as a memory of that and it can destroy it. So it actually learns over time by being exposed to pathogens. That’s called building up your immune system and this is why as a child it’s not very healthy to keep a child just so utterly sterile that they’re never exposed or they’re never sick. It’s a natural part of building the immune system.
This is an overview of how powerful fasting is for various parts of your body.
BRAIN- Fasting stimulates BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). It is like Miracle Grow for the brain. BDNF helps repair and regenerate neurons. Fasting also helps with stress resistance, neurogenesis (nerve support cells), mitochondrial production, and reducing inflammation. It helps if there is damage as in Alzheimer’s, or Parkinson’s.
BRAIN FUNCTION- Fasting helps improve the number of mitochondria, the energy factories in all body cells including your brain. You will have better memory. You will be able to focus. You will have better cognitive function.
INFLAMMATION- Fasting decreases inflammation, which is deadly inflammation on the different parts of the body. There is nothing more powerful than fasting to handle inflammation.
Are confused about the Ketogenic (Keto) Diet and Intermittent Fasting (IF) concerning calories, and the concept of not eating unless you’re hungry.
The mainstream recommendation for calories per day is:
Female — 2000
Male — 2500
But, of course, the mainstream recommendation doesn’t take into account that you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting.
When you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting, you’re switching your fuel source to your own fat calories. When counting calories it is not just about the dietary calories you’re consuming, you need to include the calories that are on your body as stored fat. A non-fat person has over a hundred thousand calories of fat an obese person has 200,000 or more calories.
