hey this is dr. Barry let’s chat for a
second about which ketogenic foods are
highest in potassium and also we’ll talk
for a minute about what potassium is why
you actually needed where it’s kept in
the body etc now if you know anyone
who’s trying to eat a low-carb high-fat
ketogenic diet please share this with
them on their Facebook page on their
Instagram on their Twitter on their vero
share this with people who need to know
because it helps me so much to spread
the word now let’s talk about potassium
why it’s important and where you can
find it on a low-carb healthy fad or
ketogenic diets so potassium is a
mineral it’s an element it it works as
an electrolyte in your body
approximately 98% of the potassium in
your body is inside your cells only a
very small portion of it is out in the
bloodstream at any given time your body
tightly controls how much potassium is
in your serum or your bloodstream
because too much or too little can cause
problems your body is very good at
controlling this if you have normal
kidney function you almost can’t eat too
much potassium because your body just
regulates that it’ll put as much as it
needs to inside the cells for storage
and then you will urinate the rest of
way the potassium inside your body is
very very important for many many
functions ok mainly for muscle function
but it has many many other functions in
the cell the way you’ll know if you
don’t have enough potassium is you’ll
have muscle cramps you’ll wake up in the
middle of the night and do the muscle
cramp dance it’s no fun to do this dance
it’s very painful and this is your body
saying hey dummy feed me more potassium
so potassium is vital for nerves to
conduct efficiently so if you want your
brain and your nerves to work very
efficiently you need to feed them plenty
of potassium your muscle function also
is the same way and hence the cramps
that’s kind of your your body’s signal
that you need more potassium the
standard American diet
the modern Western diet in most
countries is very low in potassium and
so you can come to a low carb or a
ketogenic diet already deficient in
potassium if your doctor checks your
potassium level remember what I said
earlier it’s gonna be normal okay that
does not mean that you don’t have a
potassium deficiency your cells can be
very depleted of potassium and your
serum level still be normal so a blood
test just isn’t the way to do this you
just need to eat more potassium okay
your heart is a muscle don’t forget that
heart contractility or your ability for
your heart to pump in to push out blood
is is hinges upon your potassium content
it’s vital for heart health to have
plenty of potassium in your diet there’s
also research that potassium probably
helps to lower blood pressure there’s
research that shows it probably helps
prevent osteoporosis it probably helps
prevent heart attack and stroke and it
probably helps prevent dementia as well
potassium is vital for vibrant health so
make sure any plenty of the following
foods so here are the seven foods really
summer foods and summer food groups but
I wanted to give you as much information
as I can in this little video so the
most famous ketogenic food of all is the
avocado probably and that’s because it
has a ton of good potassium in it an
avocado has more potassium as more
potassium than a banana and way less
carbohydrates now avocados do have a few
carbs and so what’s the carb account but
there’s lots of potassium in an avocado
the next is leafy greens so any leafy
green is going to have plenty of
potassium and many of the leafy greens
have more potassium than a banana the
brassicas that’s the third one broccoli
Brussels sprouts kale asparagus all
those guys have lots of potassium and
other good nutrients for you and they’re
relatively low carb several different
fish have a goodly amount of potassium
the three highest potassium content I
could find were cod halibut and
Huna all those three have good potassium
contents and very low carbohydrates
there are two nuts that are relatively
low carb and have relatively high
potassium I wanted to include and that’s
Brazil nuts and hazelnuts
now if nuts are relatively low carb food
compared to your previous snacks but
some nuts even though they have higher
potassium like almonds also have higher
carbs so you want to probably limit
those unless you’re doing well eating
your almonds and then continue to do
that to your stall but the two that are
the lowest carb are Brazil nuts
hazelnuts and then pecans of the next
now what about meat yeah any red meat
especially the liver of the red meat
animal is gonna have plenty of potassium
liver typically pork liver beef liver
even chicken liver have potassium and
other vitamins and minerals that you
really need seafood other than the fish
I mentioned above clams are a rich
source of potassium and they’re very low
carb so eat your clams
