How to Get in the Keto Zone

How to Get in the Keto Zone

DR. COLBERT: The cell is
composed of about 55 percent
monounsaturated fats.
Those and fish oil fats
are your best friends.
They’re your best fats.
(Singing) I know my God
has made the way for
me. I know my God has
made the way for me.
ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the
Believer’s Voice of Victory.
Today, Kenneth Copeland and Dr.
Don Colbert continue teaching on
supplying your body with good
nutrition. Knowing what your
body needs is the first step to
good health. Here’s Kenneth.
KENNETH: Hello, everybody.
This is the Believer’s Voice
of Victory broadcast. I’m
Kenneth Copeland. Let’s have
a word of prayer, and we’ll
get right into today’s Bible
lesson. Father, we rejoice
in Your presence. Glory to
God. Thank You for
sending Dr. Colbert to
us today. Thank You for
sending our studio audience
to us today and all of the
tens of thousands, even
millions of people watching and
enjoying Your Word today. We
give You all the praise and
the honor and the glory for
revelation from heaven.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
(Audience “Amens”) Join me
again today in welcoming
Don Colbert to this
broadcast. (Applause)
DR. COLBERT: Thank you.
KENNETH: Dr. Don Colbert,
thank you very much. (Laughs)
Oh, Doc, well, you–I tell you
what. Let’s open our
Bibles–oh, and I want to–I
want to mention to you, too,
that our studio audience is
KCM staff, EMIC staff and
partners and, whoo, we’re in
this for you. (Audience “Amens”)
AUDIENCE: That’s right.
KENNETH: That’s why we’re
here. We’re believing God
for you. (Audience “Amens”)
Amen. Skinny. (Laughter)
Proverbs 23 is our golden
text all last week and now
all this week. “When thou
sittest to eat with a ruler–“
Get this word, underline it, put
little stars by it, whatever you
do in your Bible. If you’ve
got a Bible you can’t write
in– “Why, Brother Copeland,
this is precious.” Well, that’s
wonderful. Put it in a
glass case and put it
up somewhere where you
can bow down to it and
get you one you can write in!
(Laughter) Amen. I had to learn
that. I thought, “Oh, no.” And
then the Lord said, “Come on.”
Oh, yeah, okay. Ha-ha-ha. Mine
is so marked up. I’ve got to
show you this. I was sitting
here with David Barton. We were
just about to do a broadcast.
And I had my Bible open to the
book of Hebrews, right here.
And– DR. COLBERT: Praise God.
Wow. KENNETH: And he said,
“Where do you get a white
highlighter? (Laughter) I said,
“What?” He said, “Where do you
get a white highlighter?” And
then I caught onto what he
was–what he was saying. Praise
God. Amen. Underline it. Praise
God. Highlight it. Listen,
“When you sit to eat with a
ruler, consider diligently what
is before you.” Consider it. You
stop and think about this. “Do I
need to be eating this?” “Put a
knife to your throat, if you be
a man given to appetite.” That
knife is the Word of God. “Be
not desirous of his dainties:
for they are deceitful meat.”
They look good, smell good,
taste good, and they’re not
good. They’ll kill you. Verse
20, “Be not among winebibbers;
among riotous eaters of flesh.”
Now listen to this. “For the
drunkard and the glutton shall
come to poverty.” I found that
everywhere the drunkard is
mentioned, the glutton is
mentioned. Everywhere the
glutton is mentioned, the
drunkard is mentioned because
they’re–the problem is the
same. DR. COLBERT: Absolutely.
The root problem. KENNETH: The
root problem is the same. And
that’s what Satan is trying to
support. He’ll kill you with
either one of them or both
of them. That’s what he’s
out to do, is steal, kill, and
destroy. Now, let’s go over to
I Corinthians 6:19. “What?
know ye not that your body
is the temple of the Holy
Ghost which is in you–“
or better–see, the word
“which” is italicized. “–the
Holy Ghost who is in you,
which you have of God, and
you are not your own?”
Say, “I am not my own.”
(Audience Repeats) You are
bought with a price. Say it.
TOGETHER: “I am bought with a
price.” KENNETH: “I belong to
somebody else.” (Audience
Repeats) “I am responsible for
this body, but I don’t own
it.” You get that concept?
DR. COLBERT: Amen. Amen.
KENNETH: Well, listen, you have
to live with that. DR. COLBERT:
Amen. KENNETH: You have to live
with–and this is your
sacrifice. This is not your
body. It’s your sacrifice. DR.
COLBERT: Amen. KENNETH: You
sacrifice this to the Master, to
His use. “Therefore glorify–“
What’s the understood subject of
the sentence? You. “You glorify
God in your body, and in your
spirit, which are God’s.” He
said it again. You don’t belong
to yourself. (Laughs) You belong
to your Father. (Audience
“Amens”) KENNETH: He is your
very own Father, and you are
His very own child. Hallelujah.
DR. COLBERT: Amen. KENNETH:
Amen. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Now
I’ve done my part, you do yours.
(Laughter) DR. COLBERT: Praise
God. Well, praise God. KENNETH:
Aren’t we glad to have this man?
(Audience Agrees) I tell you
what, oh, I mean to tell you, he
and Mary have been so important
to Gloria and me for so many
years. DR. COLBERT: Amen.
KENNETH: And we’re healthy
people today largely because of
him, largely because of him–
AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH:
–because he began to teach us
and show us, and he’s so kind
about it. Back when he should
have been beating me over the
head–(Laughs)–he never would
do it. But Gloria and I are
healthy today. I’m 81, and
she’ll be (Whispers) 75 in
just–(Laughter) No, 76 in just
a few days, the ninth day of
February. So praise God. And
now, you’ll be seeing this
later, but today it’s January.
DR. COLBERT: Well, praise
God. Who all is excited
about losing weight and
crucifying–crucifying your
flesh? (Audience “Amens”) Amen?
Amen. We’re going to show you
how to do it, and it’s easy.
That’s the good news. It’s easy.
Now let me kind of paint the
picture for you, because for the
past few decades, the U.S.
dietary food guidelines has been
recommending that the average
American consume 45 to 65
percent of all their calories as
carbohydrates and starches. In
fact, it formed the base of the
food guide pyramid for decades.
KENNETH: And they’ve done a
pretty good job of following it,
haven’t they? (Laughs) DR.
COLBERT: And they’ve been–yes.
Now, and–but what
happens–okay, so let’s kind of
think, what does that equate to
in calories? Let’s say instead
of 45 to 65, take a number like
50 percent of your calories as
starches and carbs. And what
are starches and carbs? Well,
it’s grains, it’s bread, it’s
wheat, it’s corn, it’s rice,
it’s potatoes. It’s all the
starches, all the man-made
starches that have–that are
devoid of wheat or–excuse me,
fiber. But what it also
is–it’s beans, peas, lentils.
It’s sodas. It’s sugars.
It’s orange juice instead
of the fruit. KENNETH: Yeah.
DR. COLBERT: And it’s
actually–a lot of fruit is
high in sugar, like raisins,
like bananas, like oranges.
They’re real high in sugar.
Sugar–when you eat 50
percent of your calories
as sugar, that’s–an average
woman takes in about 2,000
calories. That’s a thousand
calories of starches and
sugars and carbs. A thousand.
When you have done that,
you have just programmed
yourself for weight gain. Now,
men, if you’re–your average
calorie consumption is 2,500
calories. You take 50
percent–now, it could be 45
to 65. Some men take in 65
percent of their calories as
carbs, sugars, and starches.
That’s 1,250 calories of carbs,
sugars, and starches. When
you do that– KENNETH: Could
I ask you to do something?
DR. COLBERT: Yes?
KENNETH: Analyze the hamburger.
DR. COLBERT: Okay, look at the
hamburger. You’ve got a
bun, two buns, really. A
bun is like 20-25 grams
of carbs, that’s about 50.
Then you have the meat,
and that has protein. It does
have some fat, saturated fat,
in the meat. You have the
cheese. It has saturated fat
in the cheese. You have the
ketchup. For every tablespoon
of ketchup, about one to two
teaspoons of sugar. Mustard
doesn’t have sugar or carbs
in it. Mayonnaise has
polyunsaturated fats. Most
mayonnaise has soybean oil
in it. Soybean oil is highly
inflammatory for your body. You
just invite inflammation. So
what you’ve done, you’ve taken
at least–and then you add the
fries. You’ve got to add the
fries. KENNETH: Oh, yeah.
DR. COLBERT: Most everyone, they
eat out, so you’ve got 50–fries
are about another at least 50
grams of carbs. Super-sized, you
probably get around 100. Then
you get all of that fried food.
It’s usually polyunsaturated
fats that are heated that are
the worst fats you can consume.
How many people have eaten fries
and all of a sudden get pains,
joint pains in their hands and
their feet, wherever? Because
it’s inflammatory. So what’s
happening–this is a standard
American diet. They’ve just
taken in about, you know, 100
to 200 grams of carbs and
programmed themselves for weight
gain. Why? Here’s the reason:
Because of the hormone insulin.
When you eat a lot of carbs, you
spike your insulin level. Now,
insulin’s important. When you
don’t have enough insulin, you
have Type I diabetes. Your
body’s quit making insulin.
Insulin’s important. It’s a
fat-storage hormone. When you
eat a lot of carbs, your insulin
spikes, and it tells your body
to store fat, store fat, and
keep storing fat. And so what we
have to do instead of eating 45
to 65 percent of our calories as
carbohydrates, sugars, and
starches, we need to lower that
initially–this is initially to
about 15 percent of our calories
as carbs, sugars, and starches.
Now, what does that equate to?
Okay. What that equates to is
the fruits you want to consume
during this weight-loss portion
of the program is about a
quarter cup of berries a day.
That’s it. You can have lemons
and lime in your water. That’s
fine. There’s hardly any carbs
or sugars in there. Okay. Also,
you want to cut out all grains.
Grains convert to sugar. And
this is what most people don’t
realize. Your wheat, your corn,
your rice, all your grains, even
oatmeal, folks, yes, oatmeal’s
better down the road. But for
now, all of these grains, even
quinoa, convert to sugar and
raise your insulin level. When
you raise your insulin, you
store–you program your body for
fat storage. Now, grains
also–wheat also includes your
bread, your pasta, your bagels,
pretzels. All of these are wheat
types. Okay, then you have
potatoes. That’s another starch,
even sweet potatoes. During this
part of the program, these foods
spike your sugar, spike your
insulin, program you for weight
gain. So what we’re doing, we’re
putting you on 70 percent
healthy fats instead of about 50
to 70 percent carbs. You see
what’s happening? In doing so,
we lower your insulin really low
to around–your fasting insulin
goes down to about 3 or 7,
somewhere in between there.
KENNETH: Now, that’s what helps
someone that’s prediabetic. DR.
COLBERT: Yes. KENNETH: It
just–it lowers all of that. So
the pancreas goes– DR. COLBERT:
Yes, your pancreas says,
“Finally, you gave me a break.”
Okay? KENNETH: “I’ve been
working 24 hours a day. You’re
killing me here.” DR. COLBERT:
That’s right. Ha-ha-ha.
KENNETH: And so then you get
back down in there where you’re
running–where you’re supposed
to be running, and headaches are
going away and– DR. COLBERT:
Yes, that’s right. KENNETH: And
they–that’s– DR. COLBERT:
Your body goes in through–into
a self-detox type of protocol.
KENNETH: It’s so good.
DR. COLBERT: It’s a self-detox.
Now, what happens then, all of a
sudden, it’s–all of a sudden,
something almost magical
happens. Your body shifts from
burning sugars to burning fats
as its fuel. When that happens,
you enter a state–into a state
called nutritional ketosis, or
the keto zone. That is the state
where you start burning
fat as fuel, and your body
preferentially burns belly fat,
which is the most toxic fat in
your body. And then when this
happens, all of a sudden,
diseases start to slowly
go away. We start to see
inflammatory diseases start to
subside. Many go away. We start
to see– KENNETH: They’re losing
their food source. DR. COLBERT:
You’re absolutely right,
because– KENNETH: I never saw
it like that before. DR.
COLBERT: See, 90 percent–
KENNETH: Those diseases are
losing– DR. COLBERT: Yes.
KENNETH: –what they’ve been
thriving on. DR. COLBERT: 90
percent of diseases are fueled
and caused by inflammation. Now,
again, high insulin levels,
guess what it does? It fuels
inflammation. When you lower
that insulin down to a low
amount, 3, or at the highest, 7,
all of a sudden, you’ve turned
off most–a lot of inflammation
in the body. And the body
goes into a healing state.
KENNETH: Boy, that is so good.
DR. COLBERT: And then–now, the
biggest thing that people have a
problem with is they have fat
phobia. They are afraid of fats.
They don’t understand fats.
That’s why I have a whole
chapter–I tell you which fats
are your friends, which fats are
your enemies. And so again, it
goes back to the composition
of the cell. The cell is
composed of about 55
percent monounsaturated fats.
Those and fish oil fats are your
best friends. They’re your
best fats. Now, what are
monounsaturated fats?
It’s extra-virgin olive
oil. Organic’s even better. It’s
avocado oil. It’s almonds.
And you’re talking about
Gloria loving her almonds
for breakfast. KENNETH:
Yeah. DR. COLBERT: Okay.
KENNETH: 11 almonds.
DR. COLBERT: Okay.
(Laughter) KENNETH: She likes 11
almonds. DR. COLBERT: Okay.
KENNETH: I like 300 almonds.
(Laughter) DR. COLBERT: But, you
know, almond butters, your
nuts and seeds. Now, there’s
not–all–all of these types of
foods, olives and avocados and
nuts and seeds, don’t just
contain all monounsaturated.
It’s a combination of generally
monounsaturated, a little bit of
saturated, a little bit of
polyunsaturated so that we can
get our essential fats. But
those are your friends. Also,
some saturated fats are your
friends. Realize your cell
composition of most all the
cells in your body is composed
of about 25–or, excuse me,
around 27 percent saturated
fats. Now, again, your doctors
have been teaching you for over
50 years, “Limit your saturated
fats to less than 10 percent.”
But if you eat according to the
body and what it needs, the
brain needs saturated fats. When
you combine monounsaturated fats
with saturated fats, guess what
it does? It raises your good
cholesterol, HDL; it lowers your
bad, LDL pattern B. That’s the
kind that causes plaque. It can
raise, many times, your LDL
pattern A, but that type of
cholesterol does not cause
plaque in your arteries. So what
you see, you see triglycerides
drop, blood sugar drop, HDL go
up, and bad LDL pattern B go
down. And so many times, people
with heart disease, you know
what happens to them? They start
to say, “Hey–” with angina,
they have heart disease. They
say, “Hey, I can walk further
before I get any shortness of
breath or chest pain.” Many
say, “My chest pain goes
away,” because they start a
self-cleaning process where that
HDL actually goes up and starts
to take the plaque out of the
arteries. And it does reverse
cholesterol transport where it
takes that bad cholesterol out
to the liver for exit out of the
body. Isn’t that exciting?
KENNETH: It is good.
DR. COLBERT: The body goes
into a self-healing state.
But the biggest thing, the
fat phobia we put–we put our
patients on the monounsaturated
fats, lots of fish oils, as well
as some saturated fats, not
excessive amounts. I’m not
telling you to eat a stick of
butter for every meal or else,
you know, that–too much of
anything is not good, too
much saturated fat. But a lot
of monounsaturated fat is the
key. And that you can find in
olive oil mayonnaise. You can
make your chicken salad. Or you
can get avocado oil mayonnaise.
Those are great fats. I tell
people, “Use it generously,”
because about 70 percent of your
calories need to come from these
good fats. Okay? Also, your
salad dressings are key. You
need to get healthy salad
dressings without soybean oil.
Most salad dressings contain
soybean oil. It’s highly
inflammatory and mostly
genetically modified. KENNETH:
Doc, where does things like
almond butter, peanut butter,
where do they fall? DR. COLBERT:
Those are fine. You want to use
those, but getting back to my
salad dressing, use olive oil.
Olive, olive oil. Olive oil is
the king of fats, and use it
with apple cider vinegar, or
some balsamic is okay. KENNETH:
Wow. DR. COLBERT: Apple cider is
the best. You can put spices in
there, herbs and spices. You
know, you can put some oregano,
garlic, whatever you want to to
season it up. But what happens
is, when you take in that 70
percent fat, within a few days,
you enter into nutritional
ketosis, and, boom, appetite
gone. KENNETH: What does it
take? Three days, four days. DR.
COLBERT: Three days for most.
Now, if you have diabetes, it
may take a week or two. And if
you’re not going into ketosis by
checking your urine keto strips,
we can put you in ketosis within
an hour by taking a supplement
called our Instant Ketones. And
some people, diabetics may need
that for the first week or two,
and then you may not need it at
all. And so–also, other
things–other good fats are MCT
Oil Powder which is medium-chain
triglycerides. It comes from
coconut oil. It does not raise
your cholesterol and yet it
fills you up. You can put that
in your tea or your coffee or
whatever you want to. Okay? So
also dark chocolate with low
sugar or Stevia. Dark chocolate
has a type of saturated fat
called stearate that actually
lowers your cholesterol.
KENNETH: Wow. DR. COLBERT: Isn’t
that great? KENNETH: Yeah.
DR. COLBERT: So when you put
this together, all of a sudden,
you shift from burning sugar to
burning fat. And–but we’ve got
to get out of our head–we can’t
be eating all this sugar, carbs.
People think, “No, if I don’t
eat sugars and carbs, I’m going
to be tired. I need it for my
brain to think.” No, you don’t.
When you get into this program,
by burning fat, your brain
functions 25 percent better
burning fats as fuel, so does
your heart. And your energy
increases. Your body builders,
your weight lifters, your
athletes are getting onto this
now. They’re using MCT oil and
MCT oil powder before their
workouts to give them energy,
and it–because what it does,
that gives you energy, charges
your ATP, yet there’s no sugars
and carbs in it. Used to, they
would have sugar and carb drinks
and things like that, but now
they find that the MCT oil works
even better for long-term
energy. So again, it’s getting
people into the program,
coming against the fears and the
phobias, especially concerning
fat, teaching you which fats are
the good fats, which fats are
the bad fats, and then following
this program. And we have simple
recipes in chapter 15 that they
can follow. KENNETH: Mm-hmm.
DR. COLBERT: And it just, like
I said, corrects those appetite
hormones. Those appetite
hormones balance out so that
you’re not always craving sugars
and carbs because we’re turning
down the insulin. Insulin is one
of the critical keys of
turning that appetite on.
KENNETH: Praise God. DR.
COLBERT: So it’s so exciting
to see this. And again, what
we’ve talked about, and what
Brother Kenneth and I’ve
talked about quite a bit now,
is using your faith in order
to help you lose your weight.
KENNETH: Go ahead with
that. DR. COLBERT: And so–
KENNETH: I’m so excited about
that. DR. COLBERT: Yes. This
is–this is a key thing that
I have been using now
for years in my patients.
And it starts with Luke 17.
And that’s when Jesus was
going to Jerusalem. And it
says, “He entered a certain
village, and there met him ten
men who were lepers.” Now,
during this time, during this
age, back 2,000 plus years ago,
leprosy was the worst curse
ever, worse than AIDS, worse
than cancer, worse than
anything. And so what happened,
when a person had leprosy, you
had to leave your loved ones.
You had to go live in a leper
colony. You had to be at least
10 feet away from everyone, and
if the wind was blowing, much
further away. And so here are
these 10 lepers, going. And
so it says, in Verse 13, and
they–oh, excuse me, in Verse
12, “They entered a certain
village, there met him ten men
who were lepers, who stood a far
way off.” They had to stand far
away. “And they lifted up their
voices, and said, Jesus, Master,
have mercy on us. And when Jesus
saw them, he said to them, Go
show yourselves to the priests.”
Now, this is the key. Jesus
didn’t say, “You’re healed–“
Didn’t say, “You’re healed.” He
says, “Go show yourself to the
priests,” which He gave them
something to do. Faith. And
faith is obedience to God’s
Word. They went. And as they
went–it says it was– “that, as
they went, they were cleansed.”
They were healed of their
leprosy. KENNETH: Now, they
actually heard “healed.” Because
if you were–if you were healed,
you’d go show yourself to the
priest. DR. COLBERT: Yes.
KENNETH: So they said, “Yeah,
man, yeah!” (Laughs) Because
that’s what they were wanting to
hear. DR. COLBERT: Right, right.
But again, He said, “Go show
yourselves to the priest.” But
they didn’t–they weren’t healed
when they started going. They
looked–they started going.
They just obeyed Him. Faith is,
first, obedience to God’s Word.
And then it says, “One of them,
when he saw that he was healed,
he returned, and with a loud
voice he glorified God, and fell
down on his face at his feet,
giving thanks–giving him
thanks: and he was a Samaritan,”
who was despised–despised by
the Jews. “So Jesus answered,
said–” KENNETH: A stranger. DR.
COLBERT: Yes. “–There were
not–were there not ten
cleansed? But where are the
other nine?” And Jesus said,
“Were there not any found who
returned to give glory to God
except this foreigner?” And then
Jesus said to him, “Arise, go
your way. Your faith has made
you well.” Now, again, this is a
major key, the gratitude, the
gratitude. Gratitude unleashed
the faith and healing power of
God. This man was not just
made well, he was made whole.
In other words, when you have
leprosy, fingers fall off, your
nose caves in and may fall off.
Your earlobes may fall off, ears
may fall off. Your toes may
fall off. This man was made
totally whole because he
glorified–praised God.
KENNETH: Hallelujah. Isn’t that
marvelous? DR. COLBERT: It’s
powerful. KENNETH: We’ll take
it up right here tomorrow.
DR. COLBERT: Okay.
KENNETH: Glory to God.
DR. COLBERT: Amen.
KENNETH: Amen.
Jeremy’ll be back
with some great
announcements.
(Applause) Hallelujah.
ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth
Copeland Ministries. And
remember Jesus is Lord.
