We will hear from Dr. Raymond Francis and Sam Tonkin For Mail online.

Toxins and Lack of Nutrients Cause Weight Gain – Raymond Francis
This is the version of the Ketogenic diet that is very strict and it is for those people that need to drop weight for a wedding or a situation or you are at a plateau situation and you need to jump start your program.
Adrenal fatigue is a condition where your adrenal glands get overworked and burned out. It can take a major toll on your health and wellbeing, so you’ll want to avoid the major adrenal fatigue causes if you can. In this article, learn what causes adrenal fatigue and how to fix it.
What is adrenal fatigue?
What are the adrenal glands? The adrenal glands are two triangle-shaped glands. There is one on top of each of your kidneys. The adrenal glands have an outside and an inside. We’re going to be primarily talking about the hormones on the outside—especially cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone.
High sugar stimulates insulin and insulin will do two things. Insulin is a fat making hormone but it also prevents the burning of fat. If you are in a chronic stress state, your body is not going to be able to get you into ketosis because of high cortisol and the high sugar and the high insulin so it is going to be really hard for you to get in the state of fat-burning if you have high cortisol.
You must first understand why you would get weight gain with adrenal fatigue and how it all works.
There is a condition of hypercortisolism that is high cortisol. The adrenal gland has an outside and an inside. The outside makes cortisol, the stress hormone. There is a condition called Cushing’s syndrome. It is is high cortisol. Hypercortisolism means too much cortisol. It does not develop quickly. It is the same with adrenal fatigue, it starts at a certain point and it gradually gets worse and worse. Just like you have insulin resistance, pre-diabetic and then eventually a diabetic.
You may not be loosing weight when you are fasting.
We are talking about fasting for a longer for period of time, not intermittent fasting. If you’re doing intermittent fasting and keto and you are not losing weight usually it is because you are eating too many carbs.
If you have too much adrenal function like too much cortisol it’s called Cushing’s.
If you have a deficiency of cortisol and other adrenal hormones, that is called Addison’s.
The two big symptoms of adrenal fatigue are chronic fatigue and chronic inflammation. Cortisol normally is an anti-inflammatory. But if the adrenals are weak or you run out of cortisol or it does not work anymore because of cortisol resistance then you get inflammation.
Could your stress be what is preventing full ketosis and causing your keto plateau?
If a person plateaus or they are not progressing like they should on the keto diet, in many cases, they look at their carbohydrate levels, fasting, or fats. But, stress could actually cause this as well.
The typical things that will kick you out of ketosis (fat burning) are sugar and refined carbohydrates. Cough syrup, alcohol, beer and juice are all known to have hidden sugar that can knock you out of ketosis.
These 7 are important things you might not know about.
