Does the Keto Diet Work?

Does the Keto Diet Work?

hey everybody it is Geoff back in my
office with another awesome whiteboard
video for everybody today I know I’ve
talked about this in the past that talks
about the the keto diet I’ve done videos
on it I’ve done writing about it I’ll
probably do many many more because it
just keeps coming up so it’s a day I’m
just a little bit different I’m gonna
talk to you about how and why the keto
diet works because it does work I think
the why is the most important behind it
so here on the board I’ve got some of
the the the rules of the things that the
keto diet is is kind of a proponent of
and then down here covered up for the
end is how it works alright how and why
the thing keto diet works because like I
said it actually does it does help
people lose some body so let’s talk
about it no carbohydrates or very very
low carbohydrates alright ketogenic diet
does not want you eating carbohydrates
why is that well they are one of the
easiest things to overeat alright the
last time that you binge Don something
I’m willing to bet that it wasn’t
chicken breasts potato chips things that
are super super easy to overeat are
almost almost always have carbohydrates
in them
potato chips chocolate ice cream and all
of these things have carbs so if we
remove carbohydrates from your diet
those binge type foods tend to go away
right there goes pizza there goes
alcohol there I mean there goes a lot of
things that people typically binge on so
right there we’ve already dropped out a
pretty significant amount of calories
from your diet when most people say oh
well there’s still fat in there yes
there is I’m gonna get to that in a
second but the next one is its high
protein which is something that I
actually advocate for my members and and
when I tell people how to how to set up
the nutrition high protein is a big
thing one to maintain their their muscle
tissue which is big but to it’s very
very difficult to overeat protein just
like I mentioned earlier if I told you
that you know I have this amazing that
you can eat all the chicken breasts you
want you know how many chicken breasts
are you gonna eat before you are tired
of chicken breasts I mean not to mention
you know
not to mention in general but in one
sitting how many do you think you could
really put down three maybe if you were
really hungry right so high protein is
the hardest overeat you eat something
that is just protein it’s very very
difficult to overeat that high fat all
right yes
fat is something that it’s easy to over
eat but if you think about it most of
the things that are high fat that are
easy to overeat also have carbohydrates
in them it is very difficult to find
something that is just fat right so you
have people doing silly things like
putting butter in their coffee and you
know butter would be a primarily just
fat source but even something like
peanut butter is still gonna have carbs
in it so you still have eliminated many
many of the things that are easy to
binge or overeat on and you’re left with
having high fat but in combination with
your proteins so you’re eating fattier
cuts of meat bacon ribs people you know
people eat silly stuff you know higher
fat content ground beef and now you get
the dual effect of high protein and high
fat which makes you feel full right you
feel full for a lot longer you’re not as
hungry as you as you normally would be
alright so all of this together leads to
a decrease in calories consumed and
here’s the kicker here’s how it works
calorie deficit puts you into a calorie
deficit just like we always talked about
in here there is no magic there is
nothing about being fat adapted or any
of that silly nonsense that they that
they report is the cause of all this
magical fat loss you lose fat because
all of the things that they do put you
into a calorie deficit the reason that I
am NOT an advocate of this specific type
of dieting is it is very unrealistic
long term I have not met anyone that has
done this and maintain this ketogenic
diet for years and years and years
alright every you know there are people
out there that say that they’ve done it
and then it can be done great you guys
are you guys are a small percentage of
the population it is much better to take
the time to understand how to eat
carbohydrates in control it is this
to me this is the the child’s approach
to dieting where instead of teaching you
something it’s we’re just gonna take it
away from you because you can’t be
trusted to have carbohydrates so we’re
just gonna take them all the way and
then you know then everything will be
great because you just can’t have them
except the fact that you’re an adult so
you’re gonna have whatever you want and
you’re gonna go back to carbs eventually
anyways so it’s not that the keto diet
doesn’t work all right it’s that it
works for the same reason that I keep
telling you over and over and over again
which is creating a calorie deficit
there are easier ways there are better
ways to create a calorie deficit that
don’t make you miserable
and that you can continue on after the
fact after you’ve lost the body fat you
can keep doing a more sensible approach
at this stuff so I hope you got
something out of this you guys have a
great weekend and I will talk to you
next week
