Eating Right in the Keto Zone

Eating Right in the Keto Zone

July 23, 2019 32 By William Morgan


DR. COLBERT: I’m trying to reach
the Church. We need to reach the
Church before these diseases
become so ingrained that it
literally takes every bit of
your faith, the Church’s faith,
intercessor’s faith to pull
you out of this rut.
(Singing) I know my God
has made the way for
me. I know my God has
made the way for me.
ANNOUNCER: Today on
the Believer’s Voice of Victory,
Kenneth Copeland and guest Dr.
Don Colbert uncover the dangers
of sugar and its tie to cancer
and multiple diseases. Stop the
cycle. Be equipped
with revelation and
understanding to live in
God’s divine health.
KENNETH: Hello, everybody.
I’m Kenneth Copeland.
Welcome to the Believer’s
Voice of Victory broadcast.
(Laughs) You’re going
to like this today. I–I can
already tell. Amen. Don’t you
think so, Doc? DR. COLBERT: Oh,
yeah. KENNETH: Oh, yeah. I want
you to join me in welcoming Dr.
Don Colbert into the studio
today. DR. COLBERT: Praise God.
(Applause) KENNETH: I’m so glad
that you’re here, man. Praise
God. Now, you really want to
download the notes to what
you’re going to get all this
weekend and all next week.
Mm-hmm. You’re going to need
them, and you’re going to want
them, and you’re going to be
glad you have them. Father, we
thank You today. We give You
praise for this broadcast today.
We uplift our hearts and our
minds to receive revelation from
heaven, words from heaven that
move heaven on the earth. And we
thank You for it. We give You
all the praise and the honor and
the glory for it. In Jesus’
name, amen. We’ve got a
wonderful studio audience in
here today. Praise God. Welcome,
everybody. And–(Applause) DR.
COLBERT: And my wife, Mary’s,
here– KENNETH: Yeah, I see. DR.
COLBERT: –in the front row.
KENNETH: Wonderful to see you
over there. (Laughter) Yeah,
amen. Hi, Mary-Mary. We love
you, girl. Amen. And members of
the the KCM staff and members of
the EMIC staff and just some
people that just love us, you
know. We’ve got partners here.
Amen. DR. COLBERT: Yes. KENNETH:
Hey, we’re going to have–we’re
going to have a good time for a
couple of weeks here. How come
you’re sitting way back there,
and way up– DR. COLBERT:
(Laughs) Well, I’m sort of
relaxed right here. I’m just
kind of laying back, leaning
back, relaxing. KENNETH: Amen.
Let’s open our Bibles, first of
all, to the 23rd chapter of
Proverbs. We’re going to be
talking about–and talking from
Dr. Colbert’s new book, “The
Keto Zone.” Ha-ha-ha-ha. This
thing is so good. I’m–I just–I
can hardly wait to get into
this. The first time–now, I’m
81 years old. And the first time
in my life that my weight has
been stable, not–like somebody
said, “How much weight have you
lost?” I said, “You know,
probably 35-, 40,000 pounds.”
(Laughter) Yeah, probably more
than that now. And–but for the
first time, it’s stable, where I
get up Sunday morning, weigh,
and it’s the same thing it was
last Sunday. (Laughs) Amen.
And–but we’re going–we’re
going to pick him for everything
he knows. (Laughs) Praise God.
And, listen, hey, guys, be ready
for Fridays because we’re just
going–I’m just going to open it
up and let–you’re just going to
ask him what–whatever you need
to ask. So you’re going along,
write down questions and stuff,
and–and we’ll have a good time
with it. 23rd chapter of
Proverbs, are you there?
AUDIENCE: Yes. KENNETH: “When
thou sittest to eat with a
ruler, consider diligently”
–very important word
“–consider diligently what is
before thee.” Stop and think
before you eat it. DR. COLBERT:
Amen. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH:
“Put a knife to your throat, if
you be a man given to appetite.
Be not desirous of his dainties:
for they are deceitful” food,
“deceitful meat.” They look
good, taste good, smell good,
and they’re worthless. Now, look
at the 20th and the 21st verse.
There’s some–in both of these
places, there’s just a major
revelation that came to me a
number of years ago. I never
would have been able to–I
weighed 263 pounds one time.
Now, I didn’t stay there very
long, but that–that was the
peak. So “Be not–” Verse 20.
“Be not among winebibbers; among
righteous eaters of flesh: for
the drunkard and the glutton
shall come to poverty:
drowsiness shall clothe a man
with rags.” So, I wanted you to
notice here that the drunkard
and the glutton are mentioned in
both–together. Every verse
that–in the Bible that I’ve
been able to find that mentions
the glutton mentions the
drunkard in the same–in the
same context. Now, here’s what’s
so important about that: This is
addiction. DR. COLBERT: Yes,
absolutely right. KENNETH: And
food addiction is one of the
meanest addictions there is. And
I knew I was addicted to it,
particularly bread. I
like–well, what I didn’t know
back there then, it metabolizes
into sugar and alcohol. DR.
COLBERT: Right. KENNETH: I mean,
it’ll make a drunkard out of
you. DR. COLBERT: Mm-hmm.
KENNETH: And–and I didn’t know
how to get free from it. And I
asked the Lord, I said, “Ha, you
delivered me from–you delivered
me from smoking, You delivered
me from drinking.” I never was
a–I never was a drinker. I
didn’t like it in the first
place. And the few times that I
did get drunk and I lost control
mentally, boy, I didn’t like
that at all. I really wanted out
of that. And–but, I said, “How
are you going to deliver me from
food?” I mean, come on.
AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: And I
kept on about this, and I–I did
some serious fasting and praying
over this. It sounds like it
happened in a few minutes, but
it happened over a period of
time. And then when I heard Him,
oh, it wasn’t audible, but it
was really close. He said,
“Kenneth, I didn’t deliver you
from drinking. I delivered you
from drinking alcohol.” DR.
COLBERT: Mm-hmm. KENNETH: “I
didn’t deliver you from
breathing. I delivered you from
breathing smoke.” AUDIENCE:
Amen. KENNETH: And He said,
“You’re a hypocrite.” I said,
“Lord, that–you hit me a low
blow here.” (Laughter) Whoa,
whoa. Why–it really–really
just almost brought me to tears.
He said, “Well,” He said,
“You’ll fire somebody for
putting the wrong brand of oil,
particularly in your airplane.”
I said, “Yeah, I will.” He said,
“You’ll put anything in your
body, and it’s–it’s a much
finer machine than your car or
your airplane.” He said, “You
put stuff in there you haven’t
got any idea what’s in it.” See,
I was not diligently considering
what was before me. And He said,
“You never read the label on a
can. You have no idea what
you’re stuffing in your mouth.”
And the only thing, if it looks
good and tastes good, well, you
know, why not? And He said,
“That’s–you have to make a
choice and put a stop to it.” So
that’s when it began, back there
years ago. And it worked. DR.
COLBERT: But you had a
revelation. KENNETH: Yeah. And
that’s–without that, you’re in
trouble. DR. COLBERT: Right. But
most people–and this is what I
found in my practice, people
come to my practice, and I give
them the plan, yet they don’t
follow through until usually
they get a revelation. Now,
usually, the revelation they
come in with is, “Hey, Dr.
Colbert, I just had a massive
heart attack. Now only half of
my heart is functioning, and now
my lungs are filling up with
fluid, and my feet are filling
up with fluid, and I’m
exhausted, and I can only walk a
few steps before I have to
stop.” Or they come in with
cancer, stage three or four,
when they’ve only given them six
months to live. Or they come in
with Alzheimer’s, and it’s
moderate Alzheimer’s, and the
doctors have said, “Hey, within
a few years, you’ll be in a
nursing home.” Now, again, I’m
trying to reach the Church. We
need to reach the Church before
these diseases become so
ingrained that it literally
takes every bit of your faith,
the Church’s faith,
intercessors’ faith to pull you
out of this rut, okay? Now, what
I–what the statistics
show–it’s alarming what’s
happening in this country with
our food. Realize, in 1960, one
in seven Americans were obese.
1960. Now, today, over one in
three are obese. And it’s
projected by 2050 one in two
Americans will be obese.
KENNETH: 50 percent. DR.
COLBERT: 50 percent. And it is
predicted by 2050 one in three
Americans will have Type II
diabetes. And it’s predicted by
2050 that Alzheimer’s disease
will triple. Now, what is
happening if you look at this
story? When you choose to eat a
lot of sugar, carbs, and
starches, you are literally
inviting into your body, into
your brain 35 major diseases.
You’re–it’s the same principle
as Galatians 6:7 and 8,
“Brethren be not deceived; God
is not mocked: whatsoever seed
you sow, that will you also
reap.” And then it goes on to
say, “will reap corruption of
the flesh.” Now, what corruption
is is destruction of the flesh.
Well, what’s Alzheimer’s?
Destruction of the brain. What’s
cancer? Destruction of the body
and forming cells that literally
start to hijack all your
nutrition, and it grows off your
body, and it starves your body.
KENNETH: You know, I see now why
God put the drunkard and the
glutton in the same verse. From
what you’re saying, the drunkard
knows what he’s inviting. DR.
COLBERT: Yes. KENNETH: “I know
where I’m going. I’m going to
wind up drunk. I’m going to wind
up driving. I’m liable to kill
somebody,” but he does it
anyway. The insidious part of
this is inviting all of this
disease– DR. COLBERT: Disease.
KENNETH: –and sickness and
death into your body, you don’t
even know it. DR. COLBERT: Don’t
even know it. Now, here is the
key now. Because alcohol, you
get addicted to. Here are the
key foods we get addicted to.
The key foods we get addicted to
are sugars, carbs, and starches.
What’s the common denominator in
all these foods? Well, sugar
forms sugar, and sugar feeds
cancer. Sugar actually is
cancer’s favorite food. It
invites cancer into the body
when you choose to eat a lot of
sugar. When you eat a lot of
carbs and starches, potatoes,
bread, corn, even rice, you’re
actually–it’s breaking down to
sugar, and you’re, again,
inviting all these diseases into
your body because your body sees
sugar as–sees starches, carbs,
and sugars as sugar. Now, what’s
happening again is, by choosing
to do this, sugar actually
increases dopamine in the brain.
What’s dopamine? One of the most
powerful neurotransmitters in
our bodies. It’s in charge of
the reward system in the body.
In other words, when you eat
sugar, you get a boost or burst
of dopamine. Dopamine is this
incredible feel-good chemical.
And it actually causes us to
have bliss, euphoria, and it’s
the pleasure reward system of
the body. And so when you
continually eat sugar and
starches and carbs, you get
addicted to it due mainly to
this dopamine surge that you
get. And most people are wanting
that surge every three or four
hours. That’s why they’re
reaching for sugar. The other
thing it does–rats and mice
choose sugar over cocaine, which
is amazing. That’s how addictive
this is. KENNETH: Mm-hmm. DR.
COLBERT: And then what sugar
does is it increases a powerful
hormone in your body. Whenever
you eat sugar, carbs, or
starches, excessive carbs and
starches, it increases insulin.
Now, here’s what insulin does:
Insulin programs you for fat
storage, particularly in your
belly. And so when you choose to
eat that sugar, your insulin’s
going up. But then what happens,
after a few hours, your sugar
drops, because that’s what
insulin does, it drives sugar in
the cells. Your blood sugar
drops and unleashes a ravenous
appetite. And so you get stuck
in this cycle. Every three to
four hours, you need another
sugar, carb, or starch hit in
order to get your burst of
dopamine, in order to raise your
blood sugar so you don’t have
that hypoglycemic reaction, or
low blood sugar. So it’s highly
addictive when we continue to
eat all these sugars and
starches, because what happens
over time–and this is what
happens in most people, between
the ages of 40 and 50, something
happens in most Americans. They
can’t–they can no longer eat
that pizza and not gain weight.
They can no longer go and eat
that big plate of pasta or all
these bagels or all that bread
or all that corn, all those corn
chips, because when they do,
they notice something happen.
They notice their waist is going
up. They notice they’re getting
sluggish. But what is happening,
they are becoming insulin
resistant, because as your belly
gets bigger, you become more
insulin resistant. When that
happens, you are inviting
diabetes into your body. And
that’s what sugar does. So this
insulin eventually stays high
all the time as we get older.
40, 50, it keeps creeping up.
When insulin creeps up higher
and higher, eventually what that
does is causing you to have more
belly fat, more belly fat. Then
it invites every–35 major
diseases into your body,
especially Type II diabetes,
especially obesity, especially
heart disease, because sugars
and carbs cause plaque buildup
in your arteries. So literally,
what we’re doing is we’re
trapped in this cycle. And so
until people get the
revelation–and again, sometimes
it takes a heart attack, a
stroke, you know, severe
complications of diabetes like
amputation of a limb, kidney
failure, Alzheimer’s disease,
cancer. Now you see what’s
happening. One in three
Americans will die of heart
disease. That’s the number one
cause of death in this country.
What’s it due primarily to?
Excessive sugars, carbs, and
starches. And the number two–
KENNETH: Which created the
plaque– DR. COLBERT: Exactly.
KENNETH: –which shut down the
arteries and kills it. DR.
COLBERT: Number two, the number
two cause of death to this
country is cancer. One
in–approximately one in four
will die of cancer. And cancer’s
favorite food is sugar. In fact,
when a person has advanced
cancer, they do a special test
called a PET scan. You remember
a PET scan? In a PET scan, they
inject a radioactive sugar into
your body called FDG,
fluorodeoxyglucose, which is
sugar, a radioactive-tagged
sugar. Now, what happens is,
cancer cells gobble up that
sugar because they’re sugar
feeders. And so that’s how we
find out where the cancer is, by
injecting a special
radioactive-tagged glucose, or
sugar. So again, we’ve got to
get people to understand, you
have got to receive the
revelation, “Hey, I don’t want
to wait until I’m diagnosed with
a heart attack, a stroke,
cancer, Alzheimer’s disease,
complication of diabetes. I want
to go ahead and start now.” And
that’s the key. What I found is,
people need that revelation,
that “aha” moment, that
epiphany. KENNETH: Mm-hmm, like
happened to me. DR. COLBERT:
Yeah. So it happened to you.
Now, again, he–the good thing
about it is, he didn’t have any
health catastrophe. AUDIENCE:
Yes. DR. COLBERT: Why wait until
you have a health catastrophe
before you have that “aha”
moment, that revelation? Now,
once they get the revelation,
you know what they have to do?
They have to make a decision.
What is that decision you want
to do? “I lay sugar, excessive
carbs, excessive starches on the
altar and follow the plan.” Now,
when you make that decision, you
have to follow it with a
commitment. You’ve got to commit
to the program. I tell people,
“If you can commit three weeks,
watch three weeks–it takes
three weeks to form a habit. It
takes three months to form a
lifestyle. Now, if you can
commit to three weeks, bingo, we
have just–we’ll turn–we’ll put
the sugar on the altar. A lot of
people say, “Oh, if I do that,
I’ll go through withdrawals.”
Some people do. But that even
shows you even more so why you
need to do it. KENNETH: Yeah.
And so what? (Audience Agrees)
DR. COLBERT: So what? That’s
right. KENNETH: So what? DR.
COLBERT: And that’s why you need
to. You’re going through a
detox, literally, from sugar,
carbs, and starches. AUDIENCE:
Yes. DR. COLBERT: But then
that’s why it’s so important to
get a partner. And I tell
people, “Get a partner to help
you through this.” A prayer
partner can be a friend or
any–someone that’s a strong
person that can help you through
this. You’ve got to make that
commitment. And then once you
make that commitment, you follow
through. And we need support.
The Church has got to band
together. Realize, the Church is
sicker. The Christians are
usually the sickest religion;
have more disease in Christians
than most any other religion.
Did you know that? KENNETH:
Hmm-mm. AUDIENCE: Mm. DR.
COLBERT: And what’s happened,
again–Jesus has called us to do
three key activities. You know
what these three activities are,
anyone? Number one, we are to
pray. Number two, we are to
give. Number three, we are to
fast. When you follow the Keto
Zone lifestyle, you are
following a fasted lifestyle. So
like John the Baptist, which is
just not eating wild–honey and
wild locusts, okay? (Laughs) And
so, do you realize the
incredible benefits medically
from therapeutic fasting? Now,
again, I’m kind of switching the
subjects. But therapeutic
fasting is the–is the most
amazing new thing of research
they’re doing now to show the
tremendous health benefits. Do
you know, when you fast for like
12 hours, like from 7:00 in the
evening to 7:00 in the morning,
or even longer, up to 18 hours a
day, you unleash a process in
the body called autophagy. I
know that’s a mouthful. That
just means self-eating. Your
body goes into a state of
self-cleaning the cells on a
cellular level. Your body starts
to take out old, worn-out
proteins, mitochondria,
organelles, and cell membranes,
and it starts to get rid of them
and recycle them to rebuild new
cells. Isn’t that cool how it
works? KENNETH: Now, the
beginning of Gloria and my
transformation– DR. COLBERT:
Mm-hmm. KENNETH: –was back
there some years ago when you
taught us this, and we began
having supper at 5:30 in the
evening. DR. COLBERT: Yes.
Praise God. KENNETH: And 5:30 to
6:00. DR. COLBERT: Right.
KENNETH: And then didn’t eat
anything else until 8:00, 8:30,
9:00– DR. COLBERT: Right.
KENNETH: –the next morning. DR.
COLBERT: Now, let me tell you
what it does. When you do that,
your body–your cells go into a
self-cleaning mechanism. And
what happens, it takes old,
damaged proteins and cellular
structures and starts to recycle
them. Kind of like having an old
car, and you take out the–you
know, the spark plugs. Some
people have–take–I mean, some
people take the motor out of the
car and put a new motor in
there. That’s what your body is
doing. It’s removing old
proteins and old damaged parts
of the cell, and it’s creating
new parts. Now, what happens,
damaged proteins create damaged
cells that can either undergo
three things we usually find.
Either you can keep your damaged
cells and feel rotten, or the
cells can go through apoptosis,
or programmed cell death, or
it’s more prone to form a cancer
cell. So by doing this, you’re
cleaning out these bad cells,
and you are preventing cancer.
The other thing you’re doing,
you’re cleaning–and this is the
Keto Zone program, too, you go
into a state of autophagy when
you do this program. And just
like I told you, you wait 12
hours from the time you eat
dinner to the time you eat
breakfast. But then for
Alzheimer’s disease, it starts
to clear out those abnormal
proteins in the brain that
trigger Alzheimer’s. It clears
out the beta amyloid, the tau
protein. The body literally
shuttles these abnormal proteins
into a structure of the cell
called the lysosome, and it
breaks it down, and it reuses
the amino acids to form more
good proteins. Isn’t that
amazing? KENNETH: It is amazing.
DR. COLBERT: So that’s the
exciting thing. And this program
does that for you because you
literally take the–the thing
that turns off autophagy. You
know what it is? Sugar, carbs,
starches. High insulin turns the
self-cleaning process off. So
again, you can rid your body and
prevent, many times, cancer,
Alzheimer’s, and many other
diseases just by taking away the
sugar and carbs for 12 hours a
day; at least 12 hours, I tell
people. Now, if you can go 13,
14, 15, 16–some people do it 16
hours a day. Some people have a
window where they eat eight
hours a day, and they fast 16
hours, and it’s amazing how the
body changes. KENNETH: Well, I
mean, that’s what God told
Israel. On the sabbath, don’t
eat until evening. DR. COLBERT:
Right. KENNETH: I don’t do it
because it was part of the law,
I do it because it’s
intelligent. DR. COLBERT: Amen.
Amen. KENNETH: But if it worked
back there then, it works now.
DR. COLBERT: Right. KENNETH: And
so–and Gloria doesn’t do that,
but I do. DR. COLBERT: Praise
God. KENNETH: And come Saturday,
I just–I just don’t eat or–I
drink a lot of water, and I
drink my tea– DR. COLBERT:
Good. KENNETH: –and stuff, my
hot tea. Yeah, you know. DR.
COLBERT: (Laughs) KENNETH:
And–but then in the evening, I
eat protein. DR. COLBERT:
Mm-hmm. KENNETH: Then I get up
the next morning, and I weigh
exactly the same that I did the
last week. DR. COLBERT: You are
living a fasted lifestyle. And
when you do that, and especially
that 12-hour period during the
night, you’re unleashing one of
the most– KENNETH: Wow. DR.
COLBERT: –wonderful mechanisms
in the body to prevent cancer,
Alzheimer’s disease, and every
other diseases. KENNETH: Oh,
you’ve got to love it. Glory to
God. DR. COLBERT: It’s exciting.
KENNETH: Hallelujah. Where are
we, Tim? Ooh, yeah. Okay. I tell
you what, this has been good,
hasn’t it? Have you enjoyed it?
(Agreement & Applause)
Hallelujah. Praise God. Okay.
We’ll see you tomorrow. But
grandson Jeremy will be
back in just a moment.
ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth
Copeland Ministries. And
remember Jesus is Lord.
