A Beginner’s Guide To The Ketogenic Diet

A Beginner’s Guide To The Ketogenic Diet

August 22, 2019 1 By William Morgan


Hey, hey, everybody.
Shaun Hadsall here with Get Lean
in 12, and inside this video,
I’m going to talk about 1 of
the most popular diet trends
going viral across the
internet these days.
And that is the ketogenic diet.
So inside this video,
I’m going to talk
about 4 different
ketogenic diets that
can help you lose
more belly fat,
and I’m also going
to tell you which
one will be best for you
based on your activity level
because you’re going
to want to take
a different approach if you’re
sedentary versus active.
Now, ketogenic diet
is simply a low carb,
high friendly fat diet that
offers many health benefits
in fact, over 20
different studies
show that this type
of diet can help you
lose weight and improve health.
Ketogenic diets were originally
created to help treat epilepsy,
and they can help fight
against diabetes, cancer,
and even Alzheimer’s.
And what I’ll do is, I’ll
post about five studies down
below in the comment section
to back up these claims that I
just made to show you
that this is published,
peer-reviewed research.
This isn’t just theory.
So the first ketogenic diet
is called a traditional.
This is 75% friendly fats,
20% protein, and 5% carbs.
And when you lower your carbs
down these low amounts, what
ends up happening is you drain
your muscles, your liver,
and your brain of fuel.
So you store carbohydrates
in your muscles
and in your liver
tissue as glycogen,
and then your brain uses
carbohydrates in glucose
as a fuel source.
So when you lower your carbs
to these amounts, what ends up
happening is you,
basically, your body
is forced to start using
fat as a fuel source.
So the liver starts
producing ketone bodies
that your brain and your body
can use as a fuel source.
So the 2nd type is
a high protein one.
It’s 60% friendly fats,
35% protein, and 5% carbs.
Now, you do have to be
careful with this one,
because if you consume too much
protein, what ends up happening
is your body will
take that protein
and convert it to glucose.
This is called gluconeogenesis,
or it will take that protein
and just start using
it as a fuel source–
and use the amino acids from
the protein as a fuel source.
Both of these things will
take your body out of ketosis,
so just be aware of
that if you want to try
the high-protein version.
I tend to want to fall
into this category
because I don’t
want to lose muscle,
but these 2 down here are
actually more exciting,
and I’ll share those.
So these 2 are best for
sedentary populations.
The 3d type is called a cyclical
one, and this is my favorite.
And then the last one
is called targeted.
These are both the same.
60% friendly fats, 25%
protein, 15% carbohydrates.
Now, the cyclical approach is
the one that appeals to me most
because I want the benefits
of the ketogenic diet,
but I don’t want to I deprive
myself of my favorite carbs 7
days of the week.
So on this plan, you can consume
carbohydrates on the weekend.
So this, to me, is perfect
because Monday through Friday,
you’re in ketosis.
Then, Friday night
through Sunday,
you can enjoy some of your
favorite carbohydrates
and maybe even a
little bit of alcohol.
And then Monday,
you start back over
and put your body back
into ketosis again.
The targeted approach
is where you consume
15% of your carbohydrates.
Post-workout is the preferable.
You can do you can do it
beforehand as well because then
you’ll burn off those
carbs as a fuel source
to potentially get back
into ketosis faster,
but post workout is best
because the muscles are
like a sponge
that’s been run dry.
And they’re kind of emptied.
You kind of made
room in your tank
for an influx of carbohydrates
to replenish glycogen stores
and hopefully get your body back
in ketosis as fast as possible.
So if you got something
out of this video
and you learned
something, do me a favor.
Click the Like button and
share it, and as a gift
for watching this.
I’ll put a link somewhere
around this video,
you can get instant access
to our free report called
the “Over 40 Stubborn
Fat Sequence”.
So this will introduce you
to a 12 minute workout that’s
specifically designed to
reactivate declining hormones,
and when it’s done
properly, it can potentially
burn as much fat and
calories in 12 short minutes
than an entire hour of
traditional exercise.
So if you’re over 35 or you’re
in your 40s, 50s, or 60s
and I apologise.
I got helicopter going.
I’m down here in Florida.
We’re by the beach
and helicopters
are flying by all day long.
So anyway, you’re going to
want to download this report
if you’re over 35 years
old because it could change
your life, and in fact, it’s
the perfect 12 minute protocol
to follow with any one of
these particular diets.
So thanks for watching
