End Your Weight Loss Stall – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

End Your Weight Loss Stall – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

July 22, 2019 18 By William Morgan


weight-loss stalls are extremely
frustrating especially since most of us
have been told that on a ketogenic
lifestyle the weight just melts away
effortlessly so the worry is it that
almost everyone who does keto ends up on
some kind of stall ah it’s because you
haven’t purchased the one thing that you
really did need to purchase and if you
stick around in this video I’m gonna
tell you exactly what that is hello
wellness warriors welcome to
Mind Blowing Health and Wellness Violet
for those of you who don’t know who I am
my name is Violet I’m a psychologist and
I work out of Montreal, Canada the
reason that I make these videos is
because your health is composed of both
physical health and mental health and we
need both of those to be doing well if
we’re gonna have an overall feeling of
well-being today we are talking about
the frustration that we live when we’re
in a plateau and I’m gonna talk about
the things that actually are happening
to cause a plateau and that one thing
that you should have bought that if
you’d bought it would have solved all of
this now the first thing I’m gonna point
out is that most people who are stuck
when you ask them what is it that they
need to be doing on keto they absolutely
know they can tell you that what they
need to do is eat less than 20 grams of
total carbohydrates per day eat the fact
that comes along with the protein eat
when they’re hungry stop eating when
satiated they absolutely know the
protocol for clarity I want everyone to
understand that this is not a diet plan
this is not a weight-loss plan this is
not a fat-burning plan the ketogenic
lifestyle is exactly that it’s a
lifestyle and guess what you cannot sell
a lifestyle you’re either on the
lifestyle or you’re not so then when
we’re talking about the ketogenic
lifestyle as I’m trying to evaluate
what’s causing the problem what I start
to recognize is the first thing I hear
is that the source of the carbohydrates
doesn’t matter and to some extent that
is true the source of the carbohydrates
doesn’t matter as long as you’re eating
less than 20 grams of carbs in your day
it is true the source of the
carbohydrates don’t matter I will give
them that but as soon as I hear that
piece of information floating around in
the
that’s my first indication that they
don’t have what I’m about to tell you to
go get the second thing that they say to
me is they are not particularly reading
food labels and when I asked them about
labels they’re really not checking
except to make sure that whatever food
that they’re eating falls in line with
the Keadle idea so it’s healthy food but
they’re not verifying serving sizes and
they’re not keeping track of serving
sizes which leads to the next issue I’m
going to talk about that people are
still adding extra fat to their food
months after they’re doing keto so
theoretically if I’ve been doing keto
for months then I should be fat adapted
and if I’m fat adapted and my goal is to
lose weight then adding extra fat to my
food actually will make me stall because
now my body has a choice do I use the
dietary fat the violet is eating or do I
use the fat in the storage well it
doesn’t make sense to use a fat from
storage and then turn for the dietary
fat back in storage so your body’s too
smart for that it’s gonna use the
dietary fat so if you are trying to lose
weight then ultimately your goal is to
not add extra fat to your diet what you
want to do is you want to eat enough fat
that you’re not hungry
but at the same time not enough fact
that you’re not pulling some of the
energy from yourself so this scenario
will lead to me asking questions about
the carbohydrates that they’re eating
because I know that you know to keep
your carbohydrates under 20 but now my
question is well which carbohydrates are
you choosing and I’ll still hear that
they’re choosing things like potatoes or
carrots or you know still eating apples
once in a while and this kind of thing
it’s okay now my question it becomes
very obvious to me what’s happening here
and I’m gonna share that with you right
now you see because in the beginning it
doesn’t matter that I’m still eating a
few potatoes or carrots it doesn’t
matter that I’m still eating a few
apples it doesn’t matter that I’m adding
a little bit of extra fat to my food in
the beginning because I haven’t
decreased my carbohydrate intake so
dramatically that in the beginning the
little bit of carbs that I’m still
leaving in and the
a bit of extra fat that I’m adding it’s
still way less than what I was ingesting
before and so my insulin levels are
still much lower than what they were
before and so therefore I will lose the
problem is is that a I won’t lose as
much as I could have lost and B I will
at some point stop losing because the
thing that you don’t have that you
absolutely need to have in order to make
sure that you lose weight on keto is a
scale you need a food scale if you don’t
have a food scale then you don’t
actually know how many grams of carbs
are in what you’re eating if I take an
apple I can guess about how many carbs
are in here but I don’t know for sure if
I grab some broccoli a bowl of broccoli
I don’t know for sure how many grams of
carbs and bro I have to weigh it and
then look up the measurements and check
the one thing that everybody needs to
buy if they would like to do keto
properly and actually lose the weight
that they need to weight lose is a food
scale bonus tip there’s one other thing
that I’m going to tell you that if you
get this is gonna really help your scale
and that’s a food calculating app of
some sort I personally use chronometer I
get no money for telling you that I’m
gonna put a link to the site for
chronometer I’m actually gonna put a
link to the scale that I use as well in
my description below so you can check it
out I used to use lose it
my boyfriend uses MyFitnessPal the
reason I changed the chronometer was
because the app allows you to tell it
how many carbs you want to max out for
the day
how many proteins you want to max out
for the day and how many fats you want
to max out for the day and so because I
can choose the numbers specifically I
like that because I’m different than you
you’re different than the guy beside you
or the girl beside you so being able to
tell the app exactly what your numbers
are rather than have it calculate based
on your height and weight I thought was
really important that’s the only reason
that I use chronometer but honestly use
whatever
app is gonna let you dial in those
numbers and know that how much broccoli
you have on your plate doesn’t go over
your carbs for the day although that
would be pretty hard but if you’re still
eating bread and trying to keep it under
20 that’s gonna be important for you to
know if you’re not weighing if you’re
not reading food labels if you’re not
checking serving sizes how do you
actually know that you’re keeping your
carbs under 20 it’s the numbers that let
us know if we’re doing this or not
imma be very honest with you I started
this process weighing my food because I
was honest with myself that there’s no
way on the planet I’m gonna be able to
guess how many carbs are in these things
and when I learned that one slice of
bread had 15 grams of carbs I realized
that I need to know I’m letting you guys
understand you need to know and so I
want you to understand that till this
day I still weigh my food even the cream
that I put in my coffee
I put thirty grams and I weigh it every
morning when I put fat in my coffee I
put what I put two tablespoons now
because I’m trying to keep my weight up
I weigh it right so even if I’m gonna
ingest more to keep me from losing
weight I ingest more fat not carbs you
need to weigh your food you need to know
how much fat as well as how much protein
as well as how much carbs you’re eating
the protein is going to tell you if
you’re eating enough to build muscle we
need to build muscle it’s been proven
that women with more muscle live longer
I’m gonna make the big assumption that
generally speaking people with more
muscle live longer but the study was
done on women it’s important for us to
build muscle it’s important for us to
have enough fat in our diet depending on
where we are in our process if I’m
trying to lose I’m not eating extra fat
I’m eating the fact that comes along
with my meat and that’s it I’m eating
the fat that comes along with whatever
protein I happen to be eating and that’s
it if I’m trying to maintain my weight I
might start adding a little fat which is
what I did because otherwise I’d still
be losing you need to do this in the way
that matches you and the first way
that’s gonna happen is by knowing where
you start and I can’t know where I
started if I’m not weighing so weigh
your food know what isn’t what you’re
eating know how much of whatever you’re
eating you can eat know your serving
sizes I really want you to take your
health seriously you only get one body
and really the time it takes you to
weigh your food does not compare to the
health benefits you get from knowing
exactly what you’re eating and knowing
that you didn’t go over or you or you’re
not too far under like in my case I want
to thank all my wellness warriors for
