It’s Not Fat that Puts You in Ketosis

so i wanted to create this video to
really emphasize this one point that does come up quite often and it has
to do with what puts you into ketosis some people
think that it's taking more fat they think oh
my gosh i'm not in ketosis do i need to consume more fat
no you don't to get into ketosis you need to
lower your carbohydrates this is the key right here lower your
carbohydrates why because that affects insulin when you
eat carbs you turn on more insulin and that blocks
ketosis when you turn it off and you lower your carbs
lower amounts of insulin you go into ketosis
ketosis is all about lowering your carbohydrates and to get
yourself into ketosis it's not about consuming more protein it's not a high
protein diet it's a moderate amount of protein you
don't want to go lean though you don't want to do lean
proteins why because the leaner the protein
especially whey protein which actually has like hardly no
fat at all you're going to spike insulin more so
you have carbohydrates that trigger insulin but
lean protein will also trigger insulin so on the insulin scale the very very
top and the insulin scale has to do with
non-carbohydrate foods that trigger insulin you have the
glycemic index which is how a carbohydrate influences blood
sugars and then you have the insulin index
which are the non-carbohydrate influences of insulin and the leaner the
protein the more low-fat protein the higher the insulin spike
and when we talk about fat fat really has a
almost a neutral effect on insulin now the fact that you're consuming
fat and has some calories can raise insulin a little bit
but it has the least effect over insulin and not to over emphasize this point
enough to get into ketosis you just need to
keep your insulin low by keeping your carbs low and not do
lean protein you want to make sure you consume the
protein with with the fat that it normally comes with
why do we need dietary fat when you're in ketosis
a couple reasons number one you're going to be able to fast
longer especially in the beginning when you get into ketosis
and you're trying to do intermittent fasting it's very very important
to go longer and longer and longer if you're doing a lower amount of fat
you're going to be hungry you're not going to be satisfied and it's going to
be very difficult to go longer periods of time so
a real key thing is just to beef up your fat
at the meal to go to fast longer and the longer you fast the more you get
into ketosis the easier it's going to be also there's a lot of nutrients in fat
you have omega-3 fatty acids you have all the fat-soluble vitamins you
have other essential fats that your body needs
also fat is necessary to stimulate bile production
the cholesterol and fat that you eat are necessary
to also build all your cell membranes your brain tissue your nerve tissue
a lot of your body is made out of fat so you need fat a good amount of your
hormones are actually made out of fat especially the sex hormones also fat
helps to slow the absorption of the protein you
eat there's a lot of people that do keto in
intermittent fasting that don't need to lose weight
like myself and by consuming more fat it's a way to maintain your weight
because if you start doing low carb moderate
protein and low fat you're going to lose more weight so it's
a good way to maintain your weight because your body
is going to use the dietary fat calories for ketones and not your
own fat to convert into ketones all right
