hey this is dr. berry I’m a board certified family physician with 20 years of experience of taking care of patients just like you and I want to talk for a few minutes today with you about how to eat fat to lose fat if you’re overweight if you’re obese if you’re morbidly obese what you want to do is you want to lose fat you don’t want to lose muscle you don’t want to lose bone density or bone strength you want to lose the stored energy on your body which is the fat that you carry on your booty on your belly or worst of all inside of your liver or inside of your pancreas the fat inside your belly although it doesn’t look as bad in the mirror is actually much more medically dangerous to you than the fact that you see in the mirror and that you may be perhaps hate so much so in this video I’m gonna explain to you how eating fat to lose fat actually works and why you should do it and why it’s actually very healthy I’m gonna leave link down below in the show notes to all the research I use to make this video so you can look these things up and verify them for yourself now let’s jump into this so basically when you eat every single meal you eat every single snack you have consists of three different macromolecules carbohydrates proteins and fats those are the three macronutrients and so every meal or every snack or everything you drink has those three things in it if it has any energy at all that your body can use for energy or to use to build your body parts and so what we’re gonna do with this diet eat fat to lose fat is you’re gonna turn down the carbohydrate intake knob and if the faster you want to lose the fat then you need to turn down the carbohydrate intake knob even more and more and more if you turn it down to 20 grams of total carbohydrates a day or less then that is a ketogenic diet if you turn it down as close to zero grams of total carbohydrate intake a day as you can get it then that is a carnivore diet both of these diets are exemplary for helping you lose fat while also maintaining your muscle and some people even even put on some muscle naturally and then also helping to maintain your bone strength but you want to burn the fat if that’s what you’re after then this is how you do it and so by turning down the carbohydrate intake you’re gonna have to eat more protein or fats you know I know that you’ve probably been told by your doctor and your dietician and your mama too that you shouldn’t eat fat that fats bad for you but research that’s been hidden for decades is now coming out you some new research is being done that shows us that fat is actually good for human beings if you’re eating good healthy types of fat which I go into in other videos on this channel then you’re actually it’s very beneficial for your body in hundreds and hundreds of ways most all of your your sex hormones most all of your adrenal hormones come from directly from cholesterol and so you want to be eating lots of good healthy saturated fat so that you have a good source of cholesterol because if not your hormone health will suffer so how does this work well here’s how it works and I’m gonna give you seven ways that this is going to help you lose fat and keep the fat off in a fun healthy fulfilling sustainable way the first thing it does and probably the most important thing that eating more fat does and eating fewer carbohydrates does is it lowers your insulin level in your blood stream back to low normal insulin does hundreds of things in your body but one of the biggest things that it does that concerns you right now is that it helps your body store fat right and so anytime your insulin is elevated it’s very hard to burn the fat that you’ve already stored on your body anytime you eat carbohydrates those carbohydrates break down immediately and sugars when the sugars hit your bloodstream your insulin goes up and that turns off your ability to meaningfully burn fat that you’ve already stored in or on your body and so we want to keep the insulin level as low normal as we can and by eating far fewer behide rates then you’re currently eating and eating far more healthy fats than you’re currently eating you’re gonna keep the insulin level low normal not dangerously low just in the low range of normal which is that’s kind of the sweet spot for burning stored fat which is what you’re after next thing that eating lots of fat and way fewer carbohydrates does for you is it optimizes the ranges of your two hunger hormones they’re called leptin and ghrelin and you can google these and read about these and quickly see that optimizing these into the right levels really makes it much easier to be on a long term way of eating like this if you’re constantly hungry if you’re starving to death you are not going to be able to continue that diet and indeed that’s why many people find that the semi-starvation diets like Weight Watchers Biggest Loser Jenny Craig flexitarian Ornish all of these they’ll help short-term but you can’t do them long-term because you’re starving all the time because your leptin is low in your grill in this high it’s it’s hard you mean you can’t starve a human for the rest of their lives and indeed that’s why there will never be a reunion show for the The Biggest Loser television show because they’ve all read the weight because that diet consisted of starving them and you can’t do that for the rest of your life but if you are eating a diet that’s high in healthy fat and very low in carbohydrates your leptin and ghrelin go right where you want them to be so you’re full you’re happy you’re satiated you’re not starving all the time and that makes this way of eating very sustainable the next thing that eating lots of fat and very little carbohydrate does is it actually speeds up your metabolism you’re gonna actually burn fat faster by eating more fat and I know I know I know that may be backwards to everything you’ve ever been told your entire life but all the things you were taught in your entire life about losing weight how are they working for you right we have an obesity epidemic in modern society and it’s because we eat too many carbohydrates /or carbohydrates in eat lots more healthy fats and you’re gonna speed up your metabolic rate so we when you’re in bed asleep you’re actually going to be burning more calories than if you were up walking around on your old way of eating that is very powerful and very helpful the next thing that eating lots of healthy fats and slashing the carbohydrates is going to do for you is it’s going to raise your human growth hormone level and raise your testosterone level in a good way and women don’t freak out this is not going to make you grow a beard and have an Adam’s apple it doesn’t work that way it’s just gonna move your testosterone and your human growth hormone or your HGH into the optimal ranges so that it makes it easier for you to burn the stored fat that you’re trying to get rid of the next thing that this way of eating does is it helps you eat fewer times a day when you eat a breakfast of bacon and eggs you’re not hungry for hours and hours and hours and so it in it kind of inevitably effortlessly increases your the amount of time that you’re not eating during the day which goes back to the number-one point you’re keeping your insulin level very low normal for many more hours a day by eating lots of healthy fats and slashing your carbohydrate intake and so you’ll wind up eating maybe two meals a day or maybe even one meal a day some people are just not hungry and as long as you feel good your mental clarity is good your energy is good you’re sleeping good and your skin and hair looks good you’re getting enough nutrition and so that that’s actually the ultimate test how do you feel and how do you look on this way of eating you’re gonna feel great and look great and you’re just not going to have to eat three four or five times a day the next thing that this way of eating does is it’s gonna almost eliminate that that thoughtless snacking you do if there’s something there you just reach and get it needed it’s almost a habit it’s almost an addiction for some of us right but when you’re eating lots of healthy fat with each meal and you’re eating until you’re comfortably full you’re not going to snack as much and that goes back to the point one you’re going to keep your insulin level from spiking all the time giving you the opportunity to burn the stored fat on your booty as fuel and that’s how you get rid of fat only way to get rid of the fact that you’re trying to get rid of is to burn it as energy and the only way to do that is to not be snacking constantly through the day even if they’re keto snacks they’re gonna raise your insulin level probably enough to really slow down the fat burning that you’re trying to get going the final way number seven is it’s going when you eat lots of healthy fat you’re gonna make your brain work better you’re gonna be in a better mood you’re not gonna be as anxious you’re gonna have more stamina and stability you’re gonna have more perseverance you’re gonna have more discipline think about that it’s much easier to do something if you’re a hundred percent in an all gung-ho to do it but if you’re tired and you feel like crap and you can’t think straight you’re gonna be reaching for the snacks and so my advice to you if you want to lose fat you have to eat lots more healthy fats and you have to eat lots fewer carbohydrates that’s how you do it in all those pictures you see on Instagram and Twitter of people who have lost crazy amounts of weight yet they don’t have any redundant skin left that’s keto that is that is high fat low carb that is a carnivore diet that’s how that happens and so if you’re interested in burning fat and keeping it off for the long term you’ve got to follow the advice in this video and all the advice on my other videos I’m gonna put a link either here or here to my keto 101 video series and so if you’re brand new to this way of eating you’re like wait what eating more fat what watch the first few videos in the series and you’ll understand not only the science of it not only the common sense of it but also the ancestral appropriateness of this our ancestors have been eating as much fatty meat as they could get their hands on for the last quarter of a million years this is not a new thing this is not a fad this is how human beings are supposed to eat you might even call it the proper human diet so I’m gonna put all the links below to the research and the link to my keto
