Am I Too Old to Do Keto? – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

September 12, 2019 0 By William Morgan

hello everyone welcome to Mind Blowing
Health and Wellness with Violet Pat Chat
Edition I’m Violet remember we make
these videos to help everyone to
understand information that’s going
around the net and also just to talk
about things that we think would be
helpful for people when they’re trying
to do a kid Johnny lifestyle so what do
we have today okay so today we’re gonna
Martha’s Martha Aris questions I have
tried keto but I got a headache so bad
that I couldn’t stand it how can I avoid
this because I would like to try again
second please talk about women that is
older I’m not menopause yet but I’m 53
years of age is it good for women my age
I do intermittent fasting and I watch my
carbs but I have not made to keep it yet
so she basically cannot stay home keto
so so first thing bad addicts
well actually the I would the first
thing I would go to is in a minute
fasting has been around for a long time
and actually I heard about intermittent
fasting before I heard about keto so I
guess it just tells you like it’s a bit
more popular I would say and it’s a bit
more accepted as an idea because fasting
first of all is religious wise there’s a
lot of religions that fast
and like for for medical appointments we
often need to fast fasting is not a
strange idea but here’s the thing
fasting when you’re doing the standard
American diet is really difficult I
actually look at these as two separate
things so this is this is violet having
now gotten to the point where I have
fasted from medical reasons like the
doctor wants to take a blood test or
something and you can’t eat while I was
doing the standard Canadian diet and I
have fasted doing a ketogenic lifestyle
so the first thing that I would say
Tamar thha is can we put down fasting
for a second and focus on keto only
because when you pick it up later it’s
gonna be so much easier cuz honestly
fasting what doing a kids lifestyle
almost doesn’t feel like you’re fasting
whereas when I did it for medical
reasons back then oh wow like it’s so
much harder so that’s the first thing I
would say is I would I would talk with
that first your
gonna make your life easier and I think
you would agree with me faceting since
you’ve been Kido is easier than for any
medical anytime you’ve ever had to not
eat right do you agree but like I’m kind
of under now like are the edex caused by
maybe her starting herself trying to
fast on the understand like still having
carbs like in her system or are these
like carbs withdrawal for from trying
keto then like well I think you sue
again I’m treating it like two different
things because I feel like it’s two
different ideas that she’s putting in
into this so so you didn’t you wouldn’t
actually recommend or we wouldn’t
recommend fasting at the beginning of
switching to the keto unless you’re
really good at it so okay so there’s a
caveat if you are really good at fasting
so so there are some people because they
fast regularly so now I’m talking about
and actually my chiropractor falls into
one of these people he’s the standard a
Canadian diet and yet he fasts
intermittently and I will say as he has
said over and over how hard it is so he
has a hard time with it but he still
does it so here’s the thing is that if
you are ready fasting so Martha you need
I’m asking you now to evaluate your
situation if you’re already fasting and
you’re used to the difficulty that you
engage while you fast then what I would
suggest to you would be the fast for
whatever is the longest period of time
that you could fast so what is your
longest period deal do you fast for 24
hours is can you do that can you fast
for 48 hours I would put myself too fast
for the longest can you fast for 18
hours I mean I don’t know your longest
period is I’m saying do whatever your
longest period is but then when you
resume eating do not resume eating carbs
so resume if you’re doing a 48 hour fast
I’m gonna say this out loud you should
be resuming starting with some kind of
bone broth or something easy for your
stomach to to manage followed by
increasingly more dense foods right like
let’s not shock our system and put
ourselves in a refeed syndrome situation
so I’m assuming that if you’re already
intermittent fasting you’re doing these
safety precautions okay so I’m say
but I’m gonna say it out loud for
everyone else who’s watching this if
you’ve never fasted before of course you
should be doing this with some kind of
supervision I’m saying that out loud I’m
not a doctor I’m not suggesting that
people do this I’m saying this is what I
would do if I was already used to
intermittent fasting I would do my
longest period that I possibly could and
then when I resumed eating I would keep
the carbs under 20 grams why fasting is
one of the fastest ways to get into
ketosis right your body has no choice
but to go for the fat that’s on you to
keep your life that’s what’s gonna do
right it’s normal it’s part of our
evolution that’s how come we survived as
long as we have so that’s the angle that
I would do there is I would focus my
attention on so if you can manage it do
the longest fast that you know you can
manage easily so like without making
yourself go crazy and then when I
resumed eating keep those carbs low
the second thing now we’re gonna go to
the headaches so cancel you yeah yeah
yeah basically like also if I think it
would be more important to switch over
to keto then like focus on the fasting
basically just eat when you’re hungry
like if you can if you can like extend
the previous machine – she’s still
burning standard American diet like I’m
alive and this is what I’m saying like
if you’re gonna go the keto route I
wouldn’t even look at extending anything
I would just focus my attention on
eating my three meals a day I would
allow myself that yeah low carb yeah but
she wants a try keto again so that’s
what I’m saying if you are gonna do Kido
so the peasant the root you’re gonna do
cuz this is where I’m giving the two
options if you’re doing if you’re good
at fasting even though you’re not doing
keto if you’re good at it I would do
that fast and then when I resumed I
would jump right into keto 20 grams or
less and I would just go forward like
that however if you find the fasting
difficult and you’re gonna do the keto
root then I would do three meals a day I
would start there three meals a day
really low carb so for my day I have to
be under 20 grams but I would start with
3 meals a day
because it’s going to be satisfying in
terms of eating and not feeling like I
miss like missing anything but also
I will know for sure I will make it
between my meals and I won’t need a
snack so talking about what you’re
saying that whole idea of don’t don’t
raise those insulin if you don’t need to
write by that’s the whole idea and eat
only when you’re hungry right but
allowing myself again it’s getting into
ketosis that’s the most hardened is the
hardest part and the most important part
right and so I do feel like if if you
can align yourself with this idea that
I’m gonna plan those three meals so that
I know that my grams are under 20 so
that means having a scale weighing the
food knowing how much I can have of
everything that I’m choosing keeping it
under 20 dr. Westman has made it very
clear most people if you keep your to
your grams of carbs under 20 you will
get into ketosis and if you happen to be
one of those few people that doesn’t by
keeping your grams at 20 or less you’re
gonna see it it’s gonna be very obvious
to you okay I didn’t get in go down to
15 right is but if you’re you can only
know that if you’re measuring right so
what can you keep keep your eyes I mean
like keep your if if because you’re
talking about three meals a day we don’t
know the information if she if she
already hears that three meals a day if
she if she already keep breaking this
skip breakfast and like keep skipping
breakfast know do you want to fly is my
assumption is that if you are not doing
keto chances is that you’re probably you
know struggling there right and and you
know what at the end of the day I’ll
just be out be very transparent so when
I started doing academic lifestyle
before that I was doing a standard
Canadian diet which is some the same as
an American head and I was doing two
meals a day and when I started I did
three meals keto ok why because first of
all that was the instruction I got so I
followed instructions but the thing that
was interesting is that it did allow me
because I was having three meals a day
it did allow me to know with certainty I
was gonna make it right because even
though I was having two meals a day it
doesn’t mean that I wasn’t having snacks
between right because I was doing a
standard Canadian diet by
opening that range a little bit but
having three meals I knew I was gonna
make it because I was eating three
things and I’m still eating three things
it’s just that the timing was a little
different it kind of gave a bit of
comfort to me to know that I’m gonna
make it you know obviously because
you’ve tried this before mmm there’s a
possibility that your it won’t take you
long to get back to two if you’re
already at two mm-hmm okay right it’s
not that I’m saying you have to stay
there I’m saying start there and see how
you feel the most important part of this
is the planning knowing what I’m gonna
eat for breakfast lunch and supper so
knowing what carbs are in there so that
I can make sure that in my total day I’m
under 20 is the most important part of
that now there was another point yet
excite it’s not let’s talk about the
direction addicts like if it’s like
maybe probably like withdrawal symptoms
or it could be I oh so you so here’s the
thing there’s so many elements that come
into play when you’re talking about a
ketogenic lifestyle so you’re talking
about the withdrawal now that’s that
sugar withdrawal right the the dopamine
hit that we get the endorphin rush that
we get when we eat car be things and we
all engage that over the course of our
life because we didn’t know that that’s
what was happening so yes that’s part of
it I’ve since learned that your salt
intake is very important in that so
here’s the interesting thing
I feel like the chasing of sugar that we
have when we eat a ketogenic lifestyle
and we’ve pulled out that and so that
that kind of like yes there’s a part of
that you get this physiological reaction
and then you have you know the headaches
the sweats the shakes the all those
classic symptoms of a drug addict mm-hmm
those are for me for sure signs of with
of withdrawal right but then there’s
also this element of salt and how soft
can help us somehow and I don’t know I
don’t know chemically why this happens
if you increase your salt
it minimizes these symptoms now part of
me wonders if it’s because carbohydrates
of cold water and so when you don’t eat
them you’re
losing salt so maybe is that part of
what causes the addictive reaction I
don’t know yeah but you don’t like I
think it’s worth it to make clear that
you don’t necessarily increase result
because when you switch to a standard
American diet standard Canadian diet to
a ketogenic lifestyle you actually drop
all the salt that’s in the processed
food that’s so so all all people’s going
to their doctors and like telling them
I’ll keep your salt low basically if you
go on a keto lifestyle you you you
actually eliminate a bunch of the salt
that’s in the processed food so you need
to replace that song yeah
with better salt but like so that’s an
interesting point I wasn’t thinking
about that that’s true because for
example if I think about myself like how
many processors was i eating just
because I hate to cook so it’s like a
lot of my foodless process so of course
yeah that’s true like there’s a lot of
salt that that we stop eating just
naturally stop eating and then when
we’re in this situation we have to
replace it so you’re right
so it’s not even like I’m doing a high
salt it’s just I’m going back to the
amount of salt so so again this comes to
that question mark there’s part of it
that’s the withdrawal because sugar does
engage the in the dopamine system it
does engage the endorphin system but
then you also have that by not eating
processed foods I’ve dropped
dramatically my salt and so I’m gonna
say something now every single cell in
our body engages the sodium potassium
pump right it’s what helps chemical
reactions to happen and right so there’s
that that balance that has to happen
between sodium and potassium if I don’t
have enough sodium am I gonna feel
horrible absolutely you’re gonna have no
energy you’re getting so all the
symptoms that you again this is kind of
why it’s hard for me to say for sure
it’s only withdrawal after like getting
information from doctors and realizing
yeah there’s also the sodium-potassium
situation you need a certain amount of
sodium in your system to survive and and
and function correctly so what’s that
right there’s that other element that’s
happening right so thank you for
reminding me about that side to actually
forgotten about that piece of the puzzle
okay so
yeah other element in that in a comment
that I do find very interesting like
people that are older is it no no I’m
not so okay but it’s probably even
better for older people because like we
move this we don’t do as much like
probably Kido is is better suited for
older people than teens even or young
adults because like but young about so
it depends so but but basically is is
Kido better for a certain age group or
not at all
so here’s the thing and and this is okay
we come into the world in ketosis mmm
babies come into the world in ketosis
right and breast milk at the very
beginning it’s mostly fat so you know
like I can do that you can so at the
very beginning like our our our life is
about ketosis and then of course we
start introducing other things and of
course even the breast milk does become
more carbee why because we’re trying to
grow the child right if you think about
it it starts off more ketogenic the
breast milk and then it becomes more
carbee you’re trying to grow a child
quickly what’s the best way you give us
some carbs right so this is this is
Mother Nature being super smart and
understanding carbohydrates here’s the
thing I could even take that forward
into the kids life right you want your
kid to grow you want your kid to be
strong and tall and whatever does it
make sense to limit carbs probably not
necessary kids run around and move so
much that they’re gonna use that energy
the question is how far forward into
their future do we have to do it in the
truth is we don’t even have to do it our
body makes carbohydrates so here’s what
I find cool when you look back at our
ancestry and we look at the fruits and
vegetables that were available back a
thousand years ago they didn’t look like
the fruits and vegetables we have today
there’s a lot of genetic engineering
that’s gone into an apple looking the
way it looks today like our watermelon
looking the way it looks today I’ve
banana looking the way it looks today so
when we look at it from that perspective
what our kids have been eating the
sugar that they’re eating today even if
they were running around eating picking
berries and he mmm not at all right like
not at all it would have been a
completely different situation but would
they even have been eating those things
as soon as they have teeth they would
have been eating what mom and dad were
eating which was whatever animal we took
down nose to tail mmm right they had
been eating the same thing raw but but
this is the truth right they would I
don’t know when we started using fire to
cook things but I hope it was early but
you know that we know what I mean like
the truth is is that we would not have
been having that much sure so do I think
it’s safe for kids to do even from a
very young age personally I think it’s a
fact like if you look back your daughter
and my son they didn’t like oh like when
there were two three years old like I
had like a piece of birthday cake where
my son was like taking off all the icing
and so shit even hurts like my
daughter’s first piece of her own
birthday cake so so she didn’t eat any
cake her first piece I think she was
like five years old mhm like the first
time she actually tasted it I said okay
I’m I need something like before that I
bought a cake for other people so it’s
just reality like she was always more
vegetable orient that she was always
more like non tasting sweet foods
oriented right like now part of it is
because I I did have a role like until
four years old she was not allowed to
have any candy like quote unquote candy
no soda no candy till four years old so
that was a rule that I had but she
didn’t like fruit she didn’t like like
it like to get her to eat any fruit was
a struggle but put up a vegetable in
front of her she was happy um salad in
front of her she was happy again like my
little niece and she and that rule did
not my sister did not have the rule of
no candy for my little niece and even
today at eight years old she still loves
vegetables she like I said if you give
her cucumber she’s happy so I think all
of our kids when we actually pay
attention do you remember the first time
you put something sweet in your kid spit
in your mouth cuz I remember my
daughter’s reaction she actually she
actually did that like she had a
physical like back-up reaction
to the sugar that I put in her mouth and
that was and I never did it again like
like that was I can’t remember what it
was I think some ice cream maybe or
something and I was like you know what
if you want it you’re gonna come get it
from me I’m not being that to you again
but and it was years before she started
eating those things even after I lifted
that she can’t have any after like it
like I said she was five years old the
first time she tasted cake like
willingly mmm and at her birthday I was
letting her she wanted I would have
given it to her on her birthday and she
still didn’t not interested yeah so that
being said is it good bad for let’s say
our our age group I think you know
here’s the thing the doctors sorry no no
your doctors have mentioned that our
bodies actually functioned better
mmm when we fuel it with that yeah like
we actually function better
our brains are sharp like we’re more
able to be concentrated and beyond on
focused on tasks we are more efficient
in the use of the so the food we eat is
produced into chemical energy which is
what our body needs more efficiently
when we eat fat for fuel versus carbs
for fuel and even they said okay this is
an interesting one that I I’ve learned
recently is that like people who are
having metabolic issues so for example
if you happen to have a failing heart in
those last few days that you’re alive
your heart is actually using ketones to
keep itself from shutting down like and
the same thing they found with people
who have like Alzheimer’s and etc when
when you look at it if you are able to
get them to have ketones so when you
give MCT oil etc and like they function
better like their brain actually kind of
kicks back on and allows them to
function a bit so you know even though
we can’t read them we can’t undo the
damage unfortunately I wish we could
once you’re in an Alzheimer situation
like but at least we can and stave off
further damage by helping them have
ketones so we’re actually more efficient
yeah so Nolan whether you’re 53 60 65
I’ll be better it’s actually not even
that is no problem is in Korea from
everything that I’m reading it’s
encouraging and what can we say even to
young adults that like wanted or are
considering it like I probably would say
like don’t wait to be in a problematic
situation before changing your lifestyle
that’s the thing because that the 20s
the 30s late early thirties like I know
I wasn’t like paying much attention to
what I was eating and it got me like to
consider it that forty five so so if I
knew what to do
can I be the example my knee started
hurting me I was in my 20s hmm
right my cousin her knees like we’re
giving out on her she was teenager I
remember her first surgery I think she
was still a teenager her first surgery
on her knees solely ignore I honestly
believe I mean again Caribbean right
rice rice rice and more rice like that’s
what we eat so do I feel like yeah we
put ourselves in the situation doing
like eating that way of course if I
would have known at 20 that taking
carbohydrates out of my life would have
led to me feeling the way I feel today
consider and it’s when I think about
this I’m so happy I consider that I feel
better today than I did when I was 26
right I can run up the stairs I can run
down the stairs you wouldn’t think of
that be a thing right I couldn’t run
down the stairs because what I learned
after doing it sometimes is that my
knees would give out I would fall down
mister running down what you think is
easier my knees would give out so I have
to stop running down the stairs so
stairs I had to walk all the time just
to make sure that I didn’t end up
killing myself in the stair oka so it’s
just weird a like I don’t I know you
didn’t have many joint issues so you
don’t you can’t really relate to this
but I’m sure all the people out there
with joint issues can relate to what I’m
saying it’s like Canadian fries fries
fries that well I was eating but like a
joint issue but like a weight problem
eventually that’s for sure and and
relatively early on and my as soon as I
stopped like going to to school like
University where I was doing a lot of
my first job like in the first two years
I gained domini how many pounds like
that because you weren’t moving around
yeah I was no yeah not moving around it
not as much like new job you want to be
like you might be performing a job so
you make longer hours yeah gained a lot
of weight actually yeah I mean obviously
I gained weight too but I feel like that
wasn’t the thing that Bobby I still say
this till this day if my hip had not
started bothering me I would still be
the same way I would not have made any
investigation of like how to get because
my weight wasn’t bothering me like I’m
being very transparent like I I’m more
interested in being able to do things
than looking a certain way like my whole
life was around activities I mean like
even when you met me if you think about
it like it was always like I want to do
this I want to let’s go do this like
that’s how I that’s how my mind works
like I like to do stuff I like to make
memories with my kids you know like so
it’s like when we when we’re out doing
something like I feel good like I feel
like okay that was a good day like she’s
gonna look back and remember that and be
like yeah my mom took me there my mom
did that with me or you know so I didn’t
care but sorry I’ve made a very very
transplant I didn’t care I really didn’t
care I was all about doing things yeah
and as long as my body’s gonna let me do
something I was gonna do it yeah for me
like like what like I I saw you go like
with your keto lifestyle I was looking
at my my pressure probably like
pre-diabetic too so so yeah metallic
syndrome so yeah but like if your yeah
if you’re in your trees and you’re
watching this make the switch now we’ll
make a change now is that it should be
about being healthy this is the next
little point like we we try to eat fruit
because we’re being told it’s healthy
even though like you know so we do
things because we’re told it’s healthy
that are hurting us when there are
things that we actually could be doing
that are healthy that will help us to
live a much like healthier stronger like
our bodies function better and so yeah
we should be focusing our attention on
doing the thing that’s gonna help us to
go into our future
feeling really good mm-hmm right and
it’s amazing to me like I have zero
interest in working out but then as I’ve
gotten to this state then feel like okay
maybe I could work out something that’s
on the I mean I do it sometimes I’m not
gonna say I’m perfect at doing it every
single penny when I’m in a good routine
um in a good routine it’s still like and
then if I get out of routine I’m out of
routine but it’s at least something
that’s in my mind and I kind of keep
going back to it and I keep doing it and
I’m talking about actually working out
with weights which is not an enjoyable
thing for me but at the same time when I
do what I feel good and that’s the thing
you live a keto lifestyle you feel good
and then you start doing other things
and you wait wait this feels good and it
kind of encourages them to go back and
do it some more because you just feel
good after you’ve done it so do I need
your right do we need to be sick to do
what’s gonna help us to feel good no we
don’t right as you eat like it’s just a
matter of understanding that I would
have more energy and I slept more I
should sleep more I’d have more energy
if I eat better I sleep better mm-hmm so
do I think 53 is too old no I don’t
think there’s any age limit on eating
properly and this is properly so that’s
the other part too is like I understand
if you’re trying to feed a large number
of people that you need to be efficient
with your feeding so then grains becomes
like a really efficient way to keep
everybody alive I’ve said this in other
videos it’s like it’s a really efficient
way of keeping everybody alive is it the
best way to keep everybody healthy right
so the government its focus is keeping
everybody alive and I understand that I
would love them to level up and focus on
keeping everybody healthy mm-hmm are
they in a position to do that right now
maybe not will they be in the position
to do that at some point I hope so right
I hope that we get to that part
but 53 is not too old it isn’t about the
age it’s about either setting yourself
up so I’m gonna do keitel this way and
be like very in in our experience that
headache that you’re talking about for
most people so all the people that I’ve
talked to through this process two days
I’ve never seen it last more than two
days have you heard of anybody where it
lasts more than two days no so see it’s
it’s a serious headache I’m not gonna
lie when it hit me who mine only lasted
a day thank goodness but it wouldn’t hit
whoa and let’s put this in context I am
a person that grew up with migraines in
my especially in my teen years that
lasted days with an S hmm
the spots the lights have to be in a
dark room like I grew up with that and
this headache was serious then it
reminds me of those days so it’s not
like I’m not gonna pretend that it’s not
a big headache it’s a headache if you
happen to get the level that I got some
people I’ve also talked through this and
they had nothing no headache at all
again what I’ve learned salt yeah
salt issues I did was not oh I wasn’t
resulting my food I didn’t know about
that we found out about that later
okay I think when you did do it we had
we known about that or did you have the
same situation where the salt I can’t
remember we didn’t know that information
yet I know so you had my case no but in
my case why you tell me my temper was
different I was but my rug was like my
Road was different like I slowly took
things out I started with like called
the desert and all the sugary and then
the rice and then like the rice and the
pastor at the same time and then the
bread because like that was my my last
thing I was clinging on to but a further
down the conversation I think you you
reply through Martha to to add a little
bit more salt and fat during the first
week so our question is when you say eat
more salt can you explain to me that to
me if you don’t mind and what types of
fat when you say eat more during the
first week
okay so we already talked about the salt
yeah um the interesting thing about fat
so you talked about salt but like as a
replacement I was a replacement but
we’re like where do you add it to like
if you you want to place it was like
honestly anything yeah what do you like
rings like what do you like but I do
like one might mean that I do eat
tomatoes like
reasonable amount so sprinkle my tomato
my tomatoes in the salad coffee like
personality can say personally I’d mind
to my coffee which is interesting
when I was a little kid I used to see my
grandfather adding song to his coffee
when I was a little kid and so like when
I started to figure out like I was on I
figure where am I gonna add my salt to
because I realized I wasn’t getting
enough that I remembered that and you
know what it tastes great so now I
understand why he used to do it actually
tastes really good but yeah I add salt
to my coffee I add salt obviously to my
avocado and I salt to any meat that I’m
eating so the places you can add salt or
rather obvious just regular places that
would normally add salt the type of salt
can be important you want to at least
look for the cleanest possible salt that
you can get so I’m saying the cleanest
possible saw in every country and every
province or state or where like wherever
you happen to live has a different salt
available what I’m gonna say I’m not
gonna say one particular salt versus
another what I’m gonna say is do your
investigation and choose the salt that
doesn’t that has the least amount of
extra garbage in it so no plastics or
like poor quality minerals or things
like you want to go for a salt that has
good quality minerals and a good amount
of salt so sodium in it right so it’s
it’s that and the interesting thing
about salt also is at some places at
iodine so it depends on where your table
salt is coming from if it’s coming from
a mine cause mines were put there
thousands of years ago so if they’re
inside the earth that’s from thousands
of years ago they don’t have contact
with our ocean because so our current
ocean has so much plastic floating
around and we’ve been all warned about
BPA’s and and there’s other types of BP
bla bla bla so bps ISM so there’s not
just one
companies will say oh there’s no bpa but
then there’s the other ones that are
just as harmful to us so it’s about
finding a
the salt is coming from a mine rather
than the ocean or the sea or the you
know like so if you have on your
continent a salt mine you’re probably
better off to get yourself from there
and so the thing about iodine just to
add to that is that iodine is added to
salt your ability to use it is not so
well iodine is added to salt but then it
can evaporate out of salt apparently and
this is something I recently learned so
why would they we need iodine in our in
our bodies oh yeah we have the companies
or adding iodine because because we need
it yes and so but basically like years
ago we were not getting enough and it
was a problem they started adding it to
salt but the problem now is that salt
sits on shelves for so long before it
gets to us that you don’t have the
concentration that you used to have so
the better thing for you to do is to eat
eggs to eat fish you’re gonna have more
salt sorry you’re gonna have more iodine
access than if you then if you okay
second part of the question yeah what
what types of fat when you say more
during the first week okay so I mean
because meats so instead of your lean
your your your lean ground beef or lean
ground pork just go with the medium
medium fat medium yeah so that’s one
that’s one direction so I and I think
that for the majority of us because we
are doing regular store meats that’s
where we’re gonna get our fat from now
it doesn’t mean that that’s the only
place you can get your bathroom so
depends on what you want to do so I mean
just like preface this by saying this is
what you want to do if I buy a cut of
meat that typically would have a lot of
fat on it and it’s lean chances are that
that was a grass-fed animal right so
grass-fed animals tend to have less fat
on them in those cases then adding fat
to that meat will be important but the
fat that’s actually on it is better
quality so we’re always trying to do
that balance between grain fed animals
your grain is what we’re trying to avoid
it so grain fed
eating grain so the fattest grain base
so whatever they eat is what we eat so
if you can do better quality grasp it
and then re-add the fat then you’re
talking about using grass-fed butter on
it or using coconut oil avocado oil or
whatever to just you know add it back if
you’re gonna cook it and then pour some
olive oil on top of it and don’t cook
the olive oil but put it on top of it so
there’s different ways that you can add
fat back if you’d go for the leaner cuts
of grocery store meats because those
ones tend to be grain fed and then add
the fat back right so the important
thing is but you know what again if
you’re just starting eating a fatty cut
of meat from the grocery store is better
than nothing right like we’re always
looking at what was I doing five minutes
ago what I’m doing today but is as you
move forward and you level up then it’s
like kind of important to to look at
like what’s happening so if you have
access that’s the other thing that’s
kind of cool most people don’t realize
that if you have access to a farm and
you buy directly sometimes the meat now
I mean sometimes a lot of the time the
meat is much more economic than buying
it from the grocery store so that’s
another thing is like look around you
and see if the farms around you actually
sell directly to the public because
again if they cut out the middleman they
make more money if you go through our
own sources of fat like on a day like on
the daily basis avocados that’s for sure
so I’ve got those are good choice a good
fatty Choice fatty and healthy choice
the dressing in our salad so we do we do
like good Caesar dressing yeah if you
make it yourself then you can control
the fat that you put in and it’s easy to
make so it’s really easy to make so you
can control the fat you can use avocado
you can use olive if you don’t like
Caesar dressing then just like olive oil
with a tiny bit of vinegar balsamic
vinegar with spices that’s that’s pretty
good I know Costco has an avocado
dressing avocado lime dressing that’s
not to corby actually you know it’s
really and it tastes good I do like it
sometimes on my member
I think I’m not sure you read your
labels and make sure that the oil is all
dressing is a good quality oil like
because taking the carbohydrates out is
part of the story the other thing that
makes keto very healthy is that you’re
using good quality oils because poor
quality oils also cause inflammation
just to say that habla I saw a video
like I think it was a YouTube video out
to make your perfect eggs or like it was
like and I need something ways to cut
heggs but like the the the way they did
scrambled eggs towards the end of your
cooking you had a little bit of butter
and I tried out the other day was
delicious like it was really really
really good it changed completely the
taste of eggs like in a good way so also
that we’re talking about cream cheese I
think one of our viewer like talked
about cream cheese that could be a good
source of a good source of fat cheese in
general like like just she chews like
the less carpet cheese so they’re good
yeah I think the important thing the
important thing is yeah the important
thing just to make sure we understand in
the question it was in the first week
yeah because we’re only adding a little
extra fat in the first week to get us
through that process of becoming
allowing our body to adapt to ketogenic
lifestyle after the first week we don’t
need to add extra fat because yeah right
it’s coming from here so Martha that was
a very interesting comment I’m really
happy that we were able to answer those
questions everybody who’s made it this
