What is a ketogenic diet?

“WOW” so many questions about the ketogenic diet for weight loss.

What is a ketogenic diet?

This diet is nothing new, scientist, doctors, health professionals, nutritious, dieticians etc, realize now that this is a great way eat, because of all the health benefits for so many disease models, they now understand that the western diet, high carbs low fat and the calorie in and calorie out diets don’t work, they never have and they never will for long term health, if they did than why is 2/3 of our country dealing with obesity and overweight as an epidemic, and why are their so many young kids that are overweight., and why is type 2 diabetes on the rise with the young and old.

What is a ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates, this is how it was used by the medical industry, than they figured out this was a great way to help obesity as well.

How does the dictionary define a ketogenic diet- a diet that tends to promote the metabolic formation of ketone bodies by causing the body to use fat (rather than carbohydrate) as its principal energy source?

Remember the low-fat diet craze? Back in the 1990s, we were told that swapping regular cookies and chips for those labeled “low fat” would be the ticket to easy weight loss and better health.

Today, we know the push toward fat-free actually made us fatter—and the diet pendulum has swung in the other direction. Along with research that has shown weight loss is more effectively achieved through a high-fat, low-carb eating plan, health-conscious folks have fully embraced fat. Sales of whole fat milk and yogurt have soared in recent years, and most nutritionists now tell their clients to incorporate fatty foods like fish, avocado, and olive oil into their diets. The reemergence of all this creamy goodness has led to a century-old diet making a major comeback: the ketogenic diet, or keto diet for short.

First, some context: the average person’s diet contains about 55% carbohydrates, 30% fat, and 15% protein. On the keto diet, though, you eat a whole lot more fat, and a lot less carbs: we do 70% of the diet is comprised of fat, 25% is moderate protein, and a mere 5% of calories come from carbohydrates, mostly fibrous carbs(veggies), little if no fruit, if we do have fruit we will eat them on our feed day, because I had cancer I like to keep my sugar way down. For someone on a 1,500-calorie diet for example, that translates to 19 grams of carbohydrates per day, which is less than what you find in one medium-sized apple. For us we are looking to stay around 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day, remember most of our carbs are coming from veggies, we eat very little starchy carbs like rice, pasta, breads, cereals, etc, these are high glycemic foods that cause the hormone insulin to rise and store fat, the root cause of why you are overweight is hormone imbalance (insulin resistance) and most likely leptin resistance, I bet you have never heard that before, this is caused by your insulin going up and down so much because you are eating to many meals per day and they are high carb processed meals, in order for you to re-set your weight lower for long term weight loss and overall health you must get your hormone insulin under control.

Why the carb restriction? Well, your body’s preferred fuel source is carbohydrates, so it will always turn to those first. If you eat fewer carbs, your body will burn through them faster, and will have to turn to start breaking down fat for energy. When this occurs, the body goes into a state of ketosis.

Does this really fuel weight loss or make us healthier? According to one Spanish study of 20 obese adults, the answer is yes. For the study, participants were put on a low-calorie keto diet and lost an average of 40 pounds over four months. Another small experiment had a similar outcome. In a six-month Experimental & Clinical Cardiology study of 83 obese adults, those on the keto diet lost an average of 33 pounds, while lowering their bad (LDL) cholesterol levels and increasing their good (HDL) cholesterol.

There are now many more scientific studies showing the health benefits a ketogenic meal plan has, you combine it with ionized alkaline water go to http://www.ninepointfive.com using the ENAGIC electrolysis device and intermittent and prolong fasting, that is when the magic really starts, when it comes to weight loss and overall health long term.

Something you need to understand, a true ketogenic diet is not a high protein diet, this is one of the biggest mistakes people do, they think it is like the Adkins meat diet, IT IS NOT, it is a moderate amount of animal meat, around 3.5 oz per serving. Be sure to read my explanation below on this.

When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.

Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source.

Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body.

Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically, on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.

Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.

The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates.

Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.

With the average person’s diet, glucose is the main energy source.

This initially doesn’t seem like a problem until you realize that the body can’t store that much glucose. This becomes an issue for you because the extra glucose gets converted into fat which is then stored.

Because your body uses glucose as its main energy source the glucose that is converted into fat doesn’t get used.

When your body runs out of glucose it tells your brain you need more so you end up reaching for a quick snack like a candy bar or some chips.

You can begin to see how this cycle leads to building up a body that you don’t really want.

So, what’s the alternative?

Become a fat burner instead of a sugar burner.

When you lower your intake of carbs, the body begins to look for an alternative energy source and your body enters a metabolic state known as ketosis.

You’ve probably heard of the fact that you can go weeks without food but only a couple of days without water.
The reason for this is ketosis. Most people, for better or for worse, have enough fat stored on them to fuel their body for a while.
When your body is in a state of ketosis, it produces ketones. Ketones occur from the breakdown of fat in the liver.

You might be thinking why isn’t the body constantly breakdown fats in the liver? Well, when your body is producing insulin, the insulin prevents the fat cells from entering the bloodstream, so they stay stored in the body.

When you lower your carb intake, glucose levels, along with blood sugar levels, drop which in turn lowers insulin levels.

This allows the fat cells to release the water they are storing (it’s why you first see a drop-in water weight) and then the fat cells are able to enter the bloodstream and head to the liver.

This is the end goal of the keto diet. You don’t enter ketosis by starving your body. You enter ketosis by starving your body of carbohydrates.

When your body is producing optimal ketone levels you begin to notice many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.

All of these benefits are why we help people with the ketogenic diet, by educating them on our 3 weight loss protocols here at Weight Loss Made Easy.

There’s a thing called the “keto flu”—and it’s not fun.

Most of you may not get this, so don’t be alarm, the key to not getting this is by hydrating yourself with the right water, ionized alkaline water http://www.ninepointfive.com because of the structure of the water it will hydrate your cells at the cellular level much more efficiently, it will also replace your electrolytes you will be losing, this is one of the biggest reasons why people get the keto flu, they are dehydrated, bottle water and most of the water that the public is drinking is contaminated with toxic chemicals, it will not hydrate the cells at the cellular level efficiently.

This is another factor why people get the keto flu, when your body switches over to burning fat (ketosis) you are now producing ketones,
I like to call this brain food, your body is not used to burning ketones as its main source of energy, it takes time, not long before the body adjust to the change of energy source, just drink more good ionized alkaline water and keep the electrolytes up, we also add pink sea salt to our diet daily as extra electrolytes.

Carbs hold fluids in your body (think of how bread soaks up water compared to a chicken breast), so when you cut back on the nutrient, extra water is excreted in your urine. This makes it vital for those on the keto diet to stay hydrated. Not only will drinking extra water ward off constipation, but it can also lower the odds you’ll get the “keto flu.”

One of the biggest mistake I see when someone is doing a ketogenic meal plan, over eating protein.

KEEP PROTEIN LEVELS MODERATE

This is a “biggie.” Most people have the low-carb portion of Keto down to a fine art, it’s the protein that tends to trip them up. If you have Insulin Resistance (IR), Fatty Liver Disease (FLD), or any significant degree of metabolic damage, your body simply may not be able to handle a lot of protein. Not only is moderating protein part of a true Ketogenic diet, it is key to establishing and maintaining nutritional ketosis. Eating too much protein can interfere with ketosis and fat adaptation or prevent you from ever getting into ketosis in the first place.

Protein is insulinogenic, meaning it stimulates insulin release, and excesses may be used by the liver to make glucose in a process called gluconeogenesis. In those with normally functioning metabolisms, this may not be so problematic, as normally functioning metabolisms have mechanisms that may serve to counteract some measure of protein over consumption. However, there is significant evidence that higher protein consumption has a much more dramatic impact on both insulin release and blood glucose in those with metabolic issues.

In other words, if you have insulin resistance, diabetes, or any other metabolic damage and you over consume protein, the excesses can mess with your insulin (which is the hormone that tells your body to store fat) and end up as glucose in your blood stream. And we all know that high insulin and blood glucose spikes can interfere with ketosis.

An even easier way to ensure you’re moderating protein is to stay within our general guidelines of 50-75 grams of protein per day for women, and 100-125 grams per day for men.

Eat fattier cuts of meat like beef, less lean protein like chicken, and add fat to your meals to aid satiety, MCT oil, avocados etc.

For those of you who are serious about losing that unwanted belly fat, our on-line personal training will give you the tools you need to be successful long term, seniors lets show the younger generation how to get into shape.

Its seems that 99% of the public who are looking to lose that belly fat needs some type of guidance for the first 90 days, after that they have learned enough to continue it as a lifestyle of keeping it off and get the health benefits of it long-term, Emily and I have re-started our on-line personal training for a small fee, you will receive the information on the 3 protocols that have worked for us and many others, msg us for the information.

Weight Loss Made Easy- 3 weight loss Protocols

Weight Loss Made Easy- 3 weight loss Protocols

Intermittent and extended fasting protocol for women and Men.

After a years’ worth of research, it seems this fasting protocol along with combining ketogenic meals (high good fats, moderate protein, low carbs) works for both of us to keep us losing body fat and to add lean muscle, we are doing 75% high good fats, 20% moderate protein, 5% carbs.

The biggest mistake I see when someone decide to try the ketogenic meals, they over eat animal meat proteins, or over eat when it comes to proteins, there portions per sitting are large, overly eating proteins per sitting will slow your weight loss down and even add fat.
If you are going to have animal meat for your last meal of the day, kept it to 3.5 oz, or the size of the palm of your hand, that is about 21 grams of protein, if having eggs, kept it to 3 whole eggs, maybe 2 slices of bacon. If we snack, sometimes I will make my devils keto eggs, I will have 2 of them an hour or so before my last meal of the night.

When doing intermittent and extended fasting food does matter when coming off a fast, we are looking to lose that body fat asap right, why do people still lose weight when they come off of a fast and never worry about what they eat (processed foods or fast foods) that shows how flexible it is, it will even work when you eat unhealthy during your eating window, the problem with that is, your weight loss will be much slower, let’s do it healthy, loss the weight faster.

You want to come off your fasting easy, you do not want your first meal of the day be a massive amount of solid foods, your stomach is not ready for that, you have not eaten for a certain amount of time, you need to prime your stomach first, activate the stomach acid and enzymes slowly.

What we do is have a 20 oz glass of electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it, wait about 10 mins than I may have 6 oz of my homemade fresh live kefir with a tbls of MCT oil, or a tbls of organic peanut butter, or a hand full of pecans, sometimes a couple of celery sticks with peanut butter or almond butter on them, sometimes even a hard boiled egg, it needs to be something light with some good fat in it, like maybe a half of a med avocado that works well be for you eat your first meal, than half hour later I have my first meal of the day.

If you work out 4 plus days a week you can snack on keto snacks between meals only if you need to.
It has been said that women and men fast different, because women have different hormones than men, in a since this is true, women need to be monitored by someone who has a knowledge on different fasting protocols.

When the female body senses it’s headed towards famine, it will increase the production of the hunger hormones, ghrelin, which signal to the body that you’re hungry and need to eat. Additionally, if there’s not enough food for you to survive, your body is going to shut down the system that would allow you to create another human. This is the body’s natural way of protecting a potential pregnancy, even if you’re not actually pregnant or trying to conceive.

The interesting fact is women have been fasting for centuries right next to men with no side effects, the problem is that was back then, today due to our environmental toxins women’s hormone have been affected, it is a good idea to keeps tabs on how you feel during an extended fast or doing more than 1 extended fast per week, have someone who is experience in fasting monitor you, as you go through it.

In our research for over a year now, my wife and I have found that she is able to do extended fasting (24 hour) along with me, 2 to 3 times a week with no side effects to her hormones, one thing we do know that most people do not, we hydrate with electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 ( antioxidant/electrolytes) we have found that when doing fasting 18 to 20 hour plus, electrolytes replacement is huge, I am talking about the natural electrolytes in your source water no added manmade supplement to your drinking water, when you understand what and how the body utilizes nutrients and mineral, you will learn the body doesn’t recognize manmade supplements as being good, ever heard of this, If man made it don’t eat it, there is some truth to this, some of you know that.

With every glass of electrolyzed reduced water, you are getting massive amounts of electrolytes and antioxidants, and besides you are detoxifying the body daily, how important do you think that is. Something you might want to know, we both are in our mid-sixties, so don’t think you are too old to get in the best shape of your life with our 3 protocols, something else you might want to know, science research backs these 3 protocols up, showing how they may help with many disease models like cancer, slow premature aging etc.

This protocol works for both my wife and I, we do a 48 hour fast once a month.

Monday- 24 hour fast every Monday- come off the fast with a nutritional keto salad or my green protein keto smoothie. One meal this day. (1 meal)
Tuesday- 18/6 or 20/4 fast. (2 meals keto snack if needed)
Wednesday- 18/6 or 20/4 fast. (2 meals keto snack if needed)
Thursday- 18/6 or 20/4 fast. (2 meals keto snack if needed)
Friday- 18/6 or 20/4 fast. (2 meals keto snack if needed)
Saturday- 18/6 or 20/4 fast. (2 meals keto snack if needed)
Sunday- Feed day, 12/12-3 to 4 meals what every I feel like(optional)

The weeks we are not doing a 48 hour fast, we may do 3-24 hour fast that week, it depends on how we feel, and how much more body fat we need to lose, if I am down to my goal, we will only do 1-24 house fast per week to help detox our body naturally.

Ladies research has shown that women may not follow the same fasting protocols as men, in a sense this is true for some women not all, you just have to find the protocols that work for you, electrolytes seem to play a huge factor in doing extended fasting’s, I don’t mean manmade electrolyte I am talking about natural electrolytes coming from your water source, we recommend your daily drinking water should come from the Enagic electrolysis device that is certified as being safe water to drink, no other device in the US has this certification (WQA gold seal both numbers) some women may have their own intermittent and extended fasting protocol, Why? Because your hormones are different than men. When checking your progress on weight loss, for women NO scale weight, it is all about inches lost, you are to find a few pairs of tight pants, this is how you will monitor your body fat loss in inches, men can monitor their weight loss by using a scale, we still want men to find a pair of tight pants, try them on every 2 weeks.
Starting you fast protocol (beginners)

Men and Women

Your very first week you can do every other day 16/8 fasting, then the following week do the 16/8 all week, most likely you will be eating 3 meals, no snacking in between meals if you do not feel hungry, you must be hydrating with electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 for your natural electrolytes and antioxidants at least a min of a ½ oz of body weight than work up to a gal per day or 8 to 10 glasses per day, this is very important for your success due to replacing the natural electrolytes when fasting. then the third week start doing the protocol below, that is when you will see the magic.

What to look for when you are just starting out fasting, if you are fasting and you feel cold for a period of time or you are highly moody or very hungry and tired, try the ¼ tsp of sea salt with a big glass of 9.5 electrolyzed reduced water, if you are still hungry break the fast then try again the next day, you may only be able to fast 3 time a week, 16/8 that is ok, as long as you are doing the higher good fat, moderate amounts of proteins and low carbs, listen to your body (your hormones).

For those of you that may think you cannot fast think about this, you are already fasting every day and you do not even know it, watch the live video below, it will explain what I mean- Every living person that sleeps are fasting.
Basically, stop eating breakfast, have your last meal around 5 to 7 pm, it is that simple, you are already fasting every day, think about it, are you eating when you are sleeping, most of you are not hungry when you wake up right? Wait 2 hours before you have your first meal, guess what you have just extend your fasting period.

Your base intermittent fasting will be a 16/8 or 18/6 or both, what do I mean by both? You can mix them up during a 7-day period. Example, Monday 18/6, Tuesday 16/8, Wednesday 18/6, by mixing them up like this you will see better results.

You also can do 1 to 2, 24 hours fasting per month, you can finish off your 24-hour fasting with a soft snack , than your first meal can be an organic colorful salad with avocado and some nuts, add 1 tbls of MCT oil to raise the good fat, the next day you can go on a 16/8 fasting see how that works, I want you to be able to have enough time during your eating window to have at least 3 meals, what I mean by meals? When you come off your fast you have good higher fat snack, avocado, mixed nuts, tbls of organic peanut butter, ½ later have your solid meal, MTC oil with your salads, or a pcs of grass fed chicken with avocados and raw veggies, something like that. Sometimes I do a hand full of my mixed nuts a half hour before I have a larger meal, the mixed nuts before my larger meal counts as a meal, sometimes I may have celery and peanut butter during the day, that also counts as a meal, do you see how that works.

We are looking to find the protocol that works for you and your lifestyle, intermittent fasting is designed to be flexible and doable with any lifestyle.

How do I get through the first couple of weeks doing intermittent fasting when first starting out and I feel hungry, I do a glass of electrolyzed reduced water with ¼ tsp of Himalayan sea salt to shut down the hormone that gives you the hunger feeling, I will put a ¼ tsp of pink sea salt in the palm of my hand, lick it chase it with my water, I may have to do this 2 or 3 times per day at the beginning to get thru that hunger wave or I will have some black coffee or unsweetened green tea, put nothing in your coffee it has to be black, if you do you have just broke your fast to soon.

Here is an example of a 7-day men and women intermittent and extended fasting, based on your last meal will be at 6:00 pm, remember your time can be adjusted to your lifestyle, say you ate at 7:00 pm instead of 6:00 the next day eat your first meal 1 hour later, see how that works (do not stress if you eat later, on your last meal adjust it).

First week

Monday – do a 16/8, my first meal will be at 10:00 am, my last meal is 6:00 pm
Tuesday do a 16/8, my first meal will be at 10:00 am, my last meal is 6:00 pm
Wednesday- do a 16/8, my first meal will be at 10:00 am, my last meal is 6:00 pm
Thursday- do a 16/8, my first meal will be at 10:00 am, my last meal is 6:00 pm
Friday- do a 16/8, my first meal will be at 10:00 am, my last meal is 6:00 pm
Saturday- 16/8, first meal around 10:00 am last meal around 5:00 to 6:00 pm.
Sunday-feed day, eat at any time in the am, example 9:00 am eat what every you like, don’t stress on what you should eat, eat all the way up to 5:00 or 6:00 pm your last meal.

Remember no snacking between meals if you are not hungry.

Seconded week-example
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday do a 18/6 fast, all you are doing is eliminated breakfast, do this for a week.
What is your goal protocol?

You might be seeing some great results with one of the above protocols, if so stick with it if it works for you, but here in the magic when doing a few extended fasting during the week, you want to try to get to the protocol that Emily and I are doing above, with 2, 24 hour fasting per week and do a 48 hour fast once a month, I can’t stress enough how important it is to hydrate with electrolyzed reduced water during a fast, natural electrolytes are huge when it come to ding a successful extended fast, you must work up to a gal per day of electrolyzed reduced water.

Not only are you looking to lose body fat or that unwanted belly fat and to slow premature aging you want it to be long term, if you are looking to do all this in a short amount of time, than you most follow these 3 protocols for 6 plus months to start, that gives you the time to see this way of life works long term and it is so simple to do because it can fit anyone’s life style.

To get the complete health benefits, follow these 3 protocols, that are backed by science.
1. Electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 (antioxidant/electrolytes)
2. Intermittent and extended fasting
3. Ketogenic meals

Monday- for us we like doing the extended fasting the day after feed day. Once a month we will do 48-hour fast. When you do an extended fast you are getting some major health benefits, that is why it is good to do them every so often.

Intermittent and extended fasting is a no stress controlled eating lifestyle. During your eating window you can eat whatever you like, if you are out and about, and it is in your eating window and you are ready to eat something, don’t worry if it is good or bad for you, you have to eat something during your eating window, if you go without eating because there is not a place to stop at for good healthy food, that will do more harm than good.

Does food matter when coming off a fast or even during your eating window? YES, if you stick to whole foods, higher good fats, moderate animal meat protein, low carbohydrates, you will reach your goals much faster.

What I mean by lower carbohydrates, refined carbs, and sugary carbs, like white rice, breads, pasta, white potatoes, you can go to google get a list of these types of carbs, stick to more raw carbs like veggies.

Tip for athletes: If working out 3 or more times a week than you may snack between meals if needed, be sure to snack on keto snacks.
Tip: try to do one cooked meal per day, try not to eat all your meals cooked, you are killing your good probiotics and digestive enzymes by cooking your veggies, you need to feed the good gut bacteria for a healthy gut, a healthy gut will digest your foods more efficiently for better nutrient utilization.

Tip: If you go out with friends or go to a family event or a family birthday party, enjoy the event remember you are fasting the next day, plus if you do this after you have refined carbs or surgery carbs, it will lower your insulin ( insulin will cause fat) back down to normal, 6 oz of homemade kombucha, if you have it, or 2 tbls of apple cider vinegar as soon as you get home from a family event.

This is not negotiable- When first starting out with intermittent fasting you must change the type of water you are drinking, why? You have to be drinking water that has natural electrolytes and antioxidants along with the Himalayan sea salt, your body has been programed to eat breakfast every day or you are eating a meal every two hours, all of a sudden you have change your eating time, where you are not eating at all, your body is going to freak out, and you may feel what we call hunger waves, most likely you are not hungry you are thirsty. Your body will produce a hormone that will increase appetite, the electrolytes, and antioxidants in the electrolyzed reduced water along with the sea salt will shut that hormone down, until your body gets re-programed to the change in eating time, know other water can do this, it is critical early in your fasting protocol, for at least a couple weeks, you may have to do the salt and water 3 to 4 times a day at first, you also can do black coffee or unsweetened tea along with this.

Tip- Some of you may need to add some type of low glycemic starchy carbohydrate to your last meal of the of the day a couple times a week, example sweet potatoes or a yam, that is ok, but be sure you do it at your last meal, once you get into fat adapted by doing the keto meals, we want you to be burning fat for energy all day, starchy carbohydrate will take you out of burning fat for fuel, in stead it will burn the starchy carb for fuel.

Tip- later we can talk about combing a ketogenic meal when coming off a fast or for your last meal to get even faster results, at I do not want you to worry about what you eat during your eating window, I want you to eat enough.
Tip- during a extended fast or prolong fast, if you wake up hungry, or during the extended fast you seems to be more hungry, add a little more dietary fat to your last meal of the day, a tbls of MCT oil, handful of mixed nuts, add wild caught salmon to your salad 3.5 oz, be sure to use vinegar and oil on your salad etc.

Tip: For you beginners, start by doing a bone broth fast when trying to do your first 24 hour or longer fast. Say, your last meal was at 6:00 pm Sunday night, and you want to do a 24 hour fast or a 48 hour fast, on Monday have 8 oz of organic bone broth at 12:00 than do another at around 6:00 pm, try again to do a 24 hour sometime during that week the same thing. Than the next week do a 24 hour fast on Monday, eliminate the bone broth at 12:00 and only do the bone broth at 6:00 pm, when you fell you are ready eliminate the 6:00 pm bone broth, you just did your first 24 hour fast, now try a 48 hour fast.

If you are on medication, keep close contact with your doctor to monitor when to lower what ever medication you are taking, be sure you let your doctor know that you are doing the 3 protocols we recommend.

We are looking to find the protocols that best work for you.

Commit to 90 to 120 days to be consistent with this, your body set weight is not going to change overnight it takes time, if you like I can explain what body set weight means.

Every 3 to 4 days text me keep me updated how you feel, if you have lost any more inches and if you have any questions.

You are looking to burn ½ # of fat per day during your fasting, you are going to have to be around 18/6 or 20/4 fasting a few times a week, over time you will get fat adapted, it takes time and consistency to get to this point, it does not happen overnight. If you combine a ketogenic protocol you will get there faster.

Reminder- during your fasting all you can have is water (electrolyzed reduced water with massive amounts of electrolytes and H2 or black coffee or unsweetened green tea, no flavors, anything else will take you out of fasting.

Conclusion for you woman: Your fasting may be different then men, some of you may be able to do 16/8 every day some of you may not, some of you may be able to do 2- 24 hour fasting a week some my not, some of you may only be able to do 3 16/8 fasting per week, that is ok if you are on a whole food eating plan, higher good fats moderate proteins and low carbs you will still lose that unwanted body fat, ladies your hormones are different then men, you need to listen to your body (your hormones) if you are fasting and you feel moody, or very hungry and you tried the ¼ tsp of sea salt with a big glass of 9.5 electrolyzed reduced water and you are still hungry or if you feel cold for a period of time, break the fast and eat, be sure to break your fast with higher good fats like, mixed nuts or avocado, do not break your fast with fast foods or a high refined carbohydrate meal, then try the next day, it is ok you will still lose body fat, listen to what your body wants to do.

Why I do not use the western diet (restricted calorie diet) or calorie in calorie out diets, science has proved this why of losing weight does not work never has worked.

The Calorie Deception with Dr Jason Fung the western diet does not work

Leptin and Insulin Resistance Balancing Tips w/ Jason Fung, MD, Science explains why calorie restricted diets don’t work (western diet) and why intermittent fasting works so well for over all health and helps to lose body fat long term.

Why is it so important to start by changing the type of water you and your family is drinking daily, science has proven by you changing the type of water you are drinking you will lose that unwanted body fat.

How Intermittent Fasting Affects Your Body and Brain (benefits of blood ketones)

Explanation why can I take in less calories and still keep my metabolic rate fired up when doing intermittent fasting.

Explanation why can I take in less calories and still keep my metabolic rate fired up when doing intermittent fasting.

5/11/2018 chest/triceps Friday

I am coming off of a 24 hour fast I did on Thursday, for the week, I did a 48 hour fast Monday thru Tuesday, for my first meal Tuesday night I had a high good fat green veggie protein smoothie. On Wednesday I did another 24 hour fast, and finished my fast with a high good fat green salad and Thursday I ended up doing another 24 hour fast. On Friday we will work out 16 hours into our fast with only 3 meals the whole week. Our workout went great today lots of energy to complete my workout, recovery was normal, remember I have had only 3 meals going into Fridays workout, this just shows that it is not about the amount of calories you take in, it is all about the hormonal response that happens when you do an extended fasting.

I am also hydrating with electrolyzed reduced water with molecular Hydrogen H2 (antioxidants) therapeutic water that helps to flush out inflammation and replace my electrolytes, this is our recovery drink, http://www.ninepointfive.com

I am sure some of you health professionals are saying to yourself, no way you could have 3 meals in 4 days and keep up with your interval strength training, I might have thought the something unless I actually did it. This proves that science research is right, calories in is not the key to building lean muscle and to have plenty of energy for the body to function normally.

This shows that doing intermittent fasting causes a hormonal response and keeps the metabolism up, actually it will raise the metabolism because of certain hormones, adrenalin, noradrenalin, cortisol (the good one) and then the big dog to help slow premature aging, during an extended fasting in men you can raise your growth hormones by 2000% more and for woman 1300% more, being in our med sixties we lake that.

The standard western diet calorie restricted diets or calorie in and calorie out diet over time will lower the metabolism to match the amount of calories that you are taking in, that is way these type of diet don’t work, they never have worked long term, must of you know this, science has also proved this to be true, 99% of the people who do this diet will gain their weight back and at times even add more.

I did a couple of videos explaining why intermittent fasting does not lower the metabolism, it will actually rise the metabolism, because of hormonal response, you can go to my youtube channel type in Bill Mabry subscribe to it for more health videos and you can also go to my drink natures water facebook page like it for more health blogs and videos.

I am going to try to give you a brief idea why intermittent and extended fasting does not lower the metabolism and why losing weight and adding lean muscle is not about calories.

Let’s first talk about why science has shown that calorie restricted diets or calories in calories out does lower your metabolic rate. You also need to understand that science has also shown that the root cause to obesity and weight gain is a hormonal imbalance caused by the hormone that is designed to store fat, insulin, so, wouldn’t make since to learn how to control insulin, I would think so. The problem is the health professionals and medical doctors always go after the symptom not the root cause.

Example, you have been at a certain weight for say 4 to 6 years and you feel it is time to lose that excess body fat and start living a healthier life style, so you hire a personal trainer or a weight loss coach to help you, before we get started I want you to know what body set weight means, remember you have been sitting a certain weight for 4 to 5 years say 200#, your body is happy at that weight and if you try to lower it by losing weight, your body will do whatever it takes to get your weight back up to 200# by producing a hormone to increase your appetite, the hormone ghrelin, it takes time to reset your body set weight, it will not happen overnight.

Your trainer or whoever, tells you we need to lower your calorie intake by 500 calories (restricting your calories) to get you down to 1500 calories per day and have you do some type of exercise or whatever to keep you burning 2000 calories per day, so you have a deficit of 500 calorie, you lose about 1# of weight per week, and you most likely will at first.

The body is not stupid, it will realize that if it keeps burning 2000 calories per day and only bringing in 1500 calories per day than over time the body will run out of fuel for energy, so, how does the body respond to that, by lowering the metabolism to match the amount of calories coming in, you than stop losing weight, so what does your trainer do, drops your calories down to 1200 calories per day and says, you need to do more cardio and burn more calories, guess what your metabolism does, YEP, drops down to 1200 calories going out, you again stop losing weight, that is why 99% of you have failed doing these types of diets and some of you have seen this happen to you, and some of you have added more weight.

Let’s talk about intermittent and extended fasting why the metabolism does not decrease, first of all you need to understand it is not about calories it is all about hormonal imbalance, intermittent and extended fasting is based on hormonal response.

We know science research has shown that the hormone insulin is the hormone that was designed to store fat for energy to be used later, science has also shown us that by eating a high carb diet or eating 4 to 8 meals per day could cause insulin resistance, the root cause to obesity and weight gain as well as type 2 diabetes.

Most health coaches or personal trainers are telling their clients that they need to eat food to lose weight, or the typical diet, eat every 2 hours if you want to lose body fat. This is not true, by doing this you are producing insulin response from the carbs you are eating, as well as other micronutrients you are eating, they will be converted to glucose (sugar), this is what the body will use for its primary energy source to function.

You have 2 sources of fuel, first one, this is the easiest source of fuel that the body will go after to function, carbohydrates. The second source of fuel you have is fat, we like to call this rocket fuel, the body burns fat much cleaner.

The problem is your health coach is telling you, you need to eat to lose weight, they have you eating every 2 hours or 4 to 6 meals per day. Every time you have a meal your insulin will increase, if you are eating every 2 hours your body is burning glucose for fuel only, remember you have stored up fat also for fuel, that is your body fat you are trying to burn off to get lean.

The problem is if you are eating every 2 hours you are not tapping into your fat to burn for fuel because you are eating to many meals causing an insulin response, does that make since.

Why does intermittent and extended fasting work so well for weight loss, simple answer you are not eating food at all for a certain amount of time, if you don’t eat you will lose weight. If you don’t eat you are not producing insulin which is your fat storage hormone. Guess what, if you are not eating food you are not burning carbohydrates for fuel so, where is the body going to get fuel to burn for energy, you guessed it, fat, didn’t you want to lose body fat in the first place.

Remember what I said, most of your health coaches are telling you, you need calories, eat more to burn fat, that is not true, science has proved it. When you are doing intermittent fasting you are eating less calories, it is not the same as doing a calorie restricted diet that will cause your metabolism to slow down, intermittent fasting will actually rise your metabolism with less calories, and why is that?
For example, if you are doing an 18 hour fast, you are not taking in any calories, whatever carbohydrates you took in during a eating window was converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and muscle for later use as energy, during a 18 hour fast, you have eaten no food, you are going to go through your stored carbohydrate(glycogen), your body still needs energy so it switches to your stored fat for energy, this is where the magic starts and this is where health professionals seemed to get lost. Their concern is you are not taking in enough calories, you body’s metabolism is going to shut down, it is the complete opposite, if you are only eating 1200 calories in 2 meals because you are doing a 18 hour fast and you are burning 2000 calories per day, where are you getting the extra calories, can anyone guess, how many calories in 1 gram of fat (9), the body is not stupid , it says to itself, I don’t need to lower my metabolism I have plenty of calories now that I have switched over to burning fat, you are now on your way to some massive health benefits when you start to become fat adapted, and you have turned your body into a fat burning machine, know this, it doesn’t happen overnight, with the right tools like our 3 weight loss protocols and the right guidance it is easier than you think and it will fit anyone’s lifestyle and it is long term.

With guidance for the first 90 days to by doing our on-line personal training, will be educated and given the right tools for success.

Science explains why calorie restricted diets don’t work (western diet) and why intermittent fasting works so well for overall health and helps to lose body fat long term.

Please share this post with your friends and family

You have to types of LDL(cholesterol) bad LDL (oxidized LDL caused by free radicals) and good LDL, we already know that HDL is good for you.

I don’t understand why doctors were not informed about this, what did they teach them in all those years in collage, we do know they were not taught about nutrition or they would not be prescribing you to take lowering cholesterol medication. How do they not know by taking the medication to lower cholesterol, will cause the liver to produce more cholesterol, the is how important cholesterol for the body to run efficiently, all you have to do is research the importance of cholesterol for the body, and be sides look up the side affects of cholesterol medication, after ready it are you sure you want to take the chance taking it.

You have to start somewhere, so, let’s start with what is called the essence of life, the type of water you are drinking, this is the first thing you need to do is detox the body for a couple of weeks from all the stored toxic chemicals you have at the cellular level(heavy metals)

Guys If this all makes sense, msg us, you have to start somewhere, start with the most important protocol, with the type of water you are drinking, how long can you live without water, most of you are drinking water with toxic chemicals, we let people sample the water for free for 2 weeks, no obligation, what is the big deal you have to drink water right, and be side for 2 weeks you will get water for free, you will save money for 2 weeks, you want have to buy bottle water.

What makes cholesterol bad. (free radicals)

Real sciences- the object is to prevent oxidative LDL before it even happens, how do you do that, simple solution, detox your body daily with water that has structure to it and is able to neutralize the free radicals you are consuming daily from the environment, in other words, change the type of water your family is drinking daily to electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it, the most powerful antioxidant on the planet.

Science is now showing the fastest and easiest way to neutralize free radicals is by changing your water to electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it.

Why is it that most of the public are having such a hard time losing that unwanted body fat or how about that unwanted belly fat as you age? You think you are doing everything right, by hiring a training, going on a restricted diet, doing cardio every day for an hour, and yet the weight does not come off or you may have stopped losing the weight, there is a simple fix and it is long term, you have to deal with the root cause of why the weight does not come off.

Root cause number 1, your body is acidic, in other words you are dehydrated, you have to change the type of water you are drinking to water that is able to flush out the toxic chemicals you have stored up at the cellular level, in other words the water you are drinking needs to detoxify you daily before you even think about losing any weight long term, number 2, imbalance hormones, you have lost control of the hormone that controls fat storage, the solution get these 2 root causes of weight gain under control you will than turn your body into a fat burning machine, but first you have to change the type of water you are drinking to electrolyzed reducded water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it, for a couple weeks to clean out the body, http://www.ninepointfive.com check it out.

Why do I have a major muscle pump when I have had no carbs for 48 hours when working out.

Weight Loss Made Easy

Why do I have a major muscle pump when I have had no carbs for 48 hours when working out.

I am on my second day of my 48 hour fast, it is much easier this time, I feel no craving at all, I feel like I can go for another 24 hours. Our work went great plenty of energy and strength. There is one thing I noticed thought, my pump is lasting longer during each exercise, for the last 2 or3 training sessions I am noticed each time my pump will last longer, why is that if I am on a 48 hour fast, how can that be, I have no carbohydrate stored up in my muscles to burn, most health professionals will tell you, you have to eat lots of proteins and carbs to gain lean muscle, guess what I guys, science is saying that is not true, science is also explaining why is still get a pump when working out, check it out.

Guys you do not need as much protein and carbohydrates as you think you need to add lean muscle and burn body fat at the same time, science has showing this in their research. There are now human studies by Journal of applied physiology and The Journal of

International Society of sports Nutrition. One study went for 6 weeks the other one went for 11 weeks with 2 different groups, one on at 75% high good fat, 20% moderate protein, 5% low carb(ketogenic diet), the 2nd group went on a 66% carb, 20%protein, 14% fat, guess what, the ketogenic diet group added more lean muscle and burn more fat than the western high carb diet group.

Because my wife are now fat adapted, we are burning fat for energy, in other words our main source of energy our body is going after for energy is fat, it’s no longer looking for carbohydrate for energy as the first source energy. Because we are on a very low carbohydrate diet, what carbohydrate we do store in our muscle as glycogen, we blow through is very fast, I thought.

Science is now showing that the body will store a little carbohydrate in the muscle as a reserve for energy for the brain as glucose, or on a as needed, the needs 18% of it energy from glucose (carbohydrate) when you are on a very low carb diet it will take what carbs you eat during your eating window and store it away, the body is amazing how it will do what every it needs to do to survive, if the stored carbohydrate gets to low, the body will than convert the protein you eat into glucose and add that to the stored glycogen for later use as energy for the brain.

Those of you that work out know what it feels like when you are pumped after a hard training session, what is causing that pump is the stored glycogen in your muscle, this just proves even though we are fat adapted(burning more fat for energy than carbohydrates because we are on a very low carb diet) we still can get a muscle pump during a 48 hour fast, the will always store some carbohydrate in the muscle for later use if needed.

The body operates more efficiently when you are fat adapted, burning fat for fuel and not so much carbohydrate, the health benefits are incredible, and it also helps with many disease models, science has proven this to be true.

In our research my wife and I have put together 3 weight loss protocols that are backed by science, showing the health benefits of being on our 3 protocols, not only for burning that unwanted body fat long term, it also helps with many disease models.

3 weight loss protocols for losing that unwanted body fat and for long term overall Health.

1. Electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it (www.ninepointfive.com)
2. Intermittent and extended fasting man’s natural way to control weight.
3. Ketogenic diet (75% good high fat, 20% moderate protein,5% carbs)

By following these 3 protocols you will turn your body into a fat burning machine, and you will also get the science backed overall health benefits long-term, known as alternative medicine.

You have to start somewhere, so, let’s start with what is called the essence of life, the type of water you are drinking, this is the first thing you need to do is detox the body for a couple of weeks from all the stored toxic chemicals you have at the cellular level(heavy metals)

Ketogenetic diet vs. Western Diet, can you build muscle and burn fat on a ketogenic diet?

Ketogenetic diet vs. Western Diet, can you build muscle and burn fat on a ketogenic diet?

Weight Loss Made Easy

Ketogenic diet benefits all athletes

Guys you have heard me talk about this before, people have come up to me who have heard about our 3 protocols for losing that unwanted body fat and how it helps add lean muscle at the same time, there comment to me is this, there is no way you are going to be able to keep lean muscle on or even add lean muscle by following your 3 protocols, you are not eating enough protein nor are you eating enough carbohydrates, this is my comment to them, ok, lets see what science says about that, guys you do not need to eat as much protein or carbohydrates as you think if you are looking to add lean muscle, guess what, to much protein turns to fat and to much carbohydrates turns to fat, science has already proved it, check it out.

Here is a brief explanation on why we are having such great success with our 3 protocols. Protocol 1. electrolyzed reduced water helps lose weight, flushes out inflammation, hydrates the body at the cellular level, helps with slowing down premature aging, body’s natural way to detox daily, Protocol 2. intermittent and extended fasting, helps with weight loss, helps get you into fat adapted (turn your body into a fat burning machine ketosis), add lean muscle and saves you money, there are many more health benefits, ketogenic meals, helps with weight loss (burn fat for energy) puts you into fat adaptation, helps create more energy by producing blood ketones, helps with good brain health, anti-cancer, anti-aging, add lean muscle and save you money, there are also many more health benefits.

Science is telling us why a very low carbohydrate diet does not burn lean muscle, and when you are burning fat for energy, the blood ketones you are producing will help to add lean muscle.

Let’s see what science says about this

The liver cannot utilize ketone bodies and thus, they flow from the liver to extra-hepatic tissues (e.g., brain, muscle) for use as a fuel. Simply stated, ketone body metabolism by the brain displaces glucose utilization and thus spares muscle mass. In other words, the brain derives energy from storage fat

Glycolytic cells and tissues (e.g., erythrocytes, renal medulla) will still need some glucose, because they do not have aerobic oxidative capacity and thus cannot use ketone bodies. However, glycolysis in these tissues leads to the release of lactate that is returned to the liver and then reconverted into glucose (the Cori cycle). Energy for this process comes from the increased oxidation of fatty acids in the liver. Thus, glycolytic tissues indirectly also run on energy derived from the fat stores.

The hormonal changes associated with a VLCARB include a reduction in the circulating levels of insulin along with increased levels of glucagon. Insulin has many actions, the most well-known of which is stimulation of glucose and amino acid uptake from the blood to various tissues. This is coupled with stimulation of anabolic processes such as protein, glycogen and fat synthesis. Glucagon has opposing effects, causing the release of glucose from glycogen and stimulation of gluconeogenesis and fat mobilization. Thus, the net stimulus would seem to be for increasing muscle protein breakdown. However, several studies indicate that a VLCARB results in body composition changes that favor loss of fat mass and preservation in muscle mass.

Guys If this all makes sense, msg us, you have to start somewhere, start with the most important protocol, with the type of water you are drinking, how long can you live without water, most of you are drinking water with toxic chemicals, we let people sample the water for free for 2 weeks, no obligation, what is the big deal you have to drink water right, and be side for 2 weeks you will get water for free, you will save money for 2 weeks, you want have to buy bottle water.

This is a scientific study that proved you do not need as much carbs or protein to build lean muscle.

The Journal of International Sociaty Sports Nutrition

The research was about, how does ketosis differ from the standard American diet (western diet) in terms of muscle and fat loss.
They gave the first group a ketogenic diet, high good fats 75%, moderate protein 20%, very low carbs 5%, the second group they gave them high carbs 55%, moderate protein 20%, low fat 25%, the traditional western diet that most of you have done and failed on, time after time.

They than studied them for 11 weeks, guess what they found, the group on the high good fat, moderate protein, very low fat gained 2.1 kg of muscle in 11 weeks, the keto group lost 2.2 kg of fat in those 11 weeks, ketogenic group built more muscle and lost more fat than the group that ways doing the western diet, this just proves how powerful the ketogenic diet is for adding lean muscle and to help loss that unwanted body fat, combine the ketogenic meals with the other 2 fat burning protocols we have, you know have a body that is turned into a fat burning machine long term, and it is the natural way to monitor a healthy weight and keep lean muscle on.
