In this video we’re talking about five reasons
why you’re not losing weight on keto.
Now this is a conversation that’s happening
a lot in our comments section below.
And so basically I want to bring it to the
forefront, so I can help you start losing
weight on the ketogenic diet.
Let’s jump right into this and talk about
meal frequency, okay?
So if you’re someone who is, first of all
starting the ketogenic diet, or if you’re
someone who’s been keto adapted for a while
installed: then basically what we have to
look at is maybe you’re just eating too often.
And so what we can do is, we can actually
start implementing intermittent fasting.
Now intermittent fasting is going to be powerful.
You can start with two meals a day, and you
even can go down to one meal a day.
And so if you’re someone who’s just not losing
weight regardless of how good you’re following
the ketogenic diet start implementing intermittent
fasting.
Go down to two meals a day, or just one meal
a day, and that’s gonna be really powerful.
And I’m sure that it’ll actually kick start
that weight loss.
Next is too much fat.
So basically, I’ve explained this before:
whereas if you’re following the ketogenic
diet.
Once your key to adapted then what happens,
you’ll actually start burning fat more efficiently.
So what happens, and this is why it’s confusing;
is that when you’re on the ketogenic diet
you’re, supposed to be eating a lot of fat.
But when you are fat adapted, you’ll start
burning all that dietary fat that you’re consuming
and not the fat on your body.
So basically, when we look at the ketogenic
diet, we want to actually cut back on fat
once we are adapted.
And the other thing too, is that when we look
at other macros, we want to make sure that
we are not getting too much protein.
Because It can turn the sugar in our body
and actually start kind of throwing us out
of ketosis.
And we also want to make sure that we are
not consuming too many carbs so basically,
you know too much fat is the common thing
that people mess up, just because they’re
trying to throw in more and more fat, thinking
it’s gonna help them in ketosis.
But the problem is that your body will just
keep burning that, and not the body fat.
And we want to switch to body fat.
So cut down on the fat and you should start
seeing some good results.
Next thing here, is two little physical activity.
This is a big problem.
A lot of people will work office jobs, desk
jobs, and they just don’t have a lot of physical
activity in their life.
So increasing physical activity is not only
gonna boost good hormones, like testosterone
and growth hormone, but it also is going to
really really skyrocket fat burning.
Now what I recommend typically for people
who are doing the ketogenic diet: if you follow
me on Instagram you see me talk about this
all the time.
Is doing high-intensity interval training.
It’s very high intensity workouts done in
a short duration.
So it might only be done in 20 minutes but
it’s very high intensity.
So really, what it does is it burns through
any glycogen stores you have, and it really
pushes fat burning.
So anyway, increasing your physical activity,
and also doing high-intensity interval training;
not even necessarily every day, but every
other day, is really going to skyrocket fat
burning.
So make sure that you throw that in, and I’ll
put a link in the description below to a video
that I did on that.
And I’ll put links to any other resources
that pertain to this video in the description
below.
Next here is sleeping, stressed.
Now these two kind of go together, you know.
When we look at stress, it typically turns
into a lack of sleep.
If it spirals out of control but what really
happens here is it causes hormone imbalance.
And it skyrockets this hormone called cortisol.
When you have an increase in cortisol in the
body, essentially what happens is it actually
blocks and blunts the fat burning.
So anyway, what we want to do is make sure
that we’re decreasing stress, we’re getting
adequate sleep.
And then that way we’re going to decrease
cortisol in the body, and it’s gonna allow
us to actually burn that fat, and get the
results that we’re looking for.
And once again, I did a video and some different
herbs you can use to decrease cortisol.
So some people have a lot of stress in their
life, and they’re looking to do something
above and beyond.
I’ll put that in the description below as
well.
And then of course health conditions.
Okay, so if you’re someone who has thyroid
issues, if you have hyperinsulinemia, if you
have PCOS, if you have depression, if you
have different health issues, going on these
can actually slow down the weight loss.
Okay, so the big thing is that we have to
be persistent here.
And the other thing is that you have to be
patient, because they can slow down this whole
process.
And you just might take a lot longer to get
results.
But here’s the deal, is that from the day
one, when you start the ketogenic diet and
you start living a healthy lifestyle, good
changes are occurring in your body.
You’re going to decrease inflammation.
You’re going to start the process of healing
within your body.
And the good news is, is that that process
is started.
So regardless of the fact that you’re not
losing weight, the healing process is started.
Now typically on the ketogenic diet, PCOS
starts to reverse hyperinsulinemia starts
over.
So a lot of great things are happening, and
a lot of great changes are still occurring.
Maybe just not weight loss.
Now remember, if your body is in an unhealthy
position, and if you’re overweight it didn’t
happen overnight.
To be sure to make sure that you’re giving
the ketogenic diet and healthy living strategies
the option and chance to actually go in and
make a change in your body.
I always say that even though you’re not losing
weight, there’s still good things happening
from day one.
So always be aware of that and there’s changes
occurring in your body.
Just be patient with it.
Just let them ride out and offer you those
long-term benefits they have to give.
Now be sure that if you’re not losing weight
on keto, and someone else you know is in this
well, be sure to share this video.
