How To “Bio-Hack” The KETO Diet (For People OVER 40)

How To “Bio-Hack” The KETO Diet (For People OVER 40)

July 29, 2019 2 By William Morgan


Keto is the hottest
diet in the world.
And inside this video, I’m going
to share how people over 40
can bio-hack today’s
most popular diet,
the ketogenic diet.
Because the
traditional ketogenic
diet has several
pitfalls for people who
are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.
Now, fortunately,
you can still get
all the amazing, rapid fat loss,
anti-aging, anti-inflammatory
benefits of ultra-low carb
diets like the keto diet
when you use it in conjunction
with my one-day Hormone Reset
Diet solution that you can learn
about by clicking or tapping
the link around this video.
Now, everything that
I’m going to educate you
on bio-hacking the keto
diet inside this video
is backed up by real science.
So when you go
over to my website,
you’re going to see a couple
dozen different published
studies.
So you know that everything I’m
talking about, educating you on
is actually backed
up by real research.
My name is Sean Hartzell.
I’m a 47-year-old
stubborn fat expert.
One thing that I’ve realized
after being in the health
and fitness industry
over 20 years,
six grandkids later, is that
people over 40 years old
must diet differently
than younger
people, because our current
hormonal condition is
much different.
So up here on the
whiteboard, you’re
going to see a few
pitfalls for people over 40
following the
traditional keto diet.
You’re going to see this
hormonal effect that
takes place.
And I’m going to give you the
solutions to overcome this.
So you can still get all
these amazing benefits
of these ultra low carb
diets without suffering
to these negative
hormonal consequences.
So first, before I dive
in, what is a keto diet?
If you don’t know, I’m going
to give you the short and quick
explanation.
You cut out all carbohydrates.
You eat 5% carbs.
You eat 75% of your
calories from friendly fats,
and you only 20% protein.
Now, when you do this for a
period of about three to seven
days– takes up to one
week for a lot of people–
your body makes a shift.
It stops burning glucose from
carbohydrates as a fuel source,
and then it relies on ketones
from friendly fats as a fuel
source instead.
This is known as
becoming fat-adapted.
But it can come with some
challenges for people
who are over 40 years
old because of the way
it negatively impacts hormones.
So let’s talk about that.
So the first thing to look
at on a traditional keto diet
is declining resting
metabolic rate.
You see, research
shows that people
who follow an ultra-low carb
diet and cut calories actually
have a declining leptin level
of 50% after just one week.
Also, because you’re
cutting out glucose
from carbohydrates
on a keto diet,
this means you’re cutting out
one of the primary building
blocks of TSH–
thyroid-stimulating hormone.
This is your thyroid hormone.
So it’s very important that
you optimize leptin and thyroid
sensitivity.
And the way that you
can do this is simply
at the right time,
every single week,
have a glucose-based,
high-carb cheat meal.
Now, this will take you
out of ketosis temporarily,
but it will reset your
leptin sensitivity,
and it will increase
your T4 to T3 conversion,
because you’re giving your
body the nutrients it needs
to produce thyroid hormones
and optimize your leptin
sensitivity.
Now, if you’re an
exerciser, you can get away
with doing two of these cheat
meals at a specific time
every week, that I share
with you over at my website.
And if you’re not
an exerciser, you
want to stick to
one time per week.
So there’s challenge number
one, is the declining
resting metabolic rate.
Because when leptin and
thyroid levels decline,
research shows that you
get metabolic slow down.
So this can prevent
this from happening.
The second one is
unsustainable fat loss.
No.
The keto diet is famous
for rapid fat loss.
But when you actually
line it up side-by-side
with published studies of
following other low-carb diets,
or even carb-cycling
diets, you’ll
find that the fat
loss is very similar.
So it’s not necessarily superior
from a fat loss perspective
like most people think it is.
It’s still very
effective at fat loss,
but it primarily should be
used as a therapeutic diet
for people who have
cancer, who have epilepsy,
who have metabolic
disease, or some type
of inflammatory disease.
That’s what the keto diet
really works best for.
Now, you get rapid fat loss
initially on any diet, right?
In order to sustain
this fat loss
and overcome weight
loss plateaus,
you have to focus on optimizing
three hormones– growth
hormone, adrenaline,
and glucagon.
All three of these hormones
are responsible for fighting
disease and releasing stored
fat into your bloodstream, where
it can be used as
an energy source.
So the way to optimize these
three hormones when you follow
a keto diet, or any diet, is to
simply use my morning ritual,
and time your meals
differently when you wake up,
four to five days per week.
When you do this just four
or five days per week,
you can increase growth
hormone levels over 1,000%,
and you also boost adrenaline
and glucagon, like I mentioned.
And when all three of these
hormones are optimized,
you also take
control of ghrelin,
which is your hunger hormone.
So this will also help
you eliminate your hunger
and cravings, simply by timing
your meals the right way
four or five days per
week, when you wake up.
The third pitfall indicator,
that is disrupted sleep.
And this is a very
common side effect,
not only when people are going
through the induction phase
and making the
switch into ketosis–
insomnia is one of the main
side effects of the keto flu.
However, it’s also
on the main side
effects of long-term ketosis.
I know of dozens of people
that have tried the keto diet,
but they can’t sleep
when they do that.
So the solution to
this is to regulate
your cortisol, your
melatonin, and your serotonin.
These are the
three hormones that
are going to induce
deep sleep, and they’re
going to regulate
your cortisol cycle so
that you can recover faster.
And the way that you
do this is you actually
have a huge dinner.
So instead of eating
the majority of calories
early in the day, like
we’ve been programmed
to believe all
these years, you’re
much better off saving your
calories for later in the day
and having your biggest meal
at night, for dinnertime.
And when you use the right
combination in this meal–
and you’re going to
enjoy this thoroughly–
four to five days per week you
regulate your cortisol cycle.
And when you do this,
it stimulates your brain
to release melatonin and
produce more serotonin.
And that is a snapshot of
how my one-day hormone reset
diet solution works.
