If You Cheated over Your Holidays on Your Keto Diet!

If You Cheated over Your Holidays on Your Keto Diet!

August 1, 2019 2 By William Morgan


hi and welcome it’s dr. Barry today I
want to talk to you guys about something
that may be on a lot of your minds and
that is I’m messed up over the holidays
I ate the wrong things a to much of the
wrong things I messed up my intermittent
fasting I messed up my ketogenic diet
now what okay and so I think that
probably you and a lot of your friends
and relatives are feeling this way right
now and that’s okay because I’m gonna
tell you how to feel about this what to
do about it what not to do about it and
how to fix it so if this sounds like a
good topic that your friends and family
members might be interested in please
take one second and share this on your
social media so that we can help them
not feel bad about messing up over the
holidays okay now you messed up over the
holidays you ate crap
that you should not have eaten you ate
way too much you ate outside of your
feeding window that’s okay all right
here’s what we’re gonna do step one is
you’re going to forgive yourself and
realize that this is sort of
physiological this is sort of
evolutionary narrowly okay it’s not a
big deal okay I play this mental game
with my patients in the office I say
when they ask me questions about diet
and stuff I say okay let’s do this let’s
go back in time thirty thousand years
okay here we are we’re back in time
thirty thousand years there’s your
grandmother your grandfather times 250
or 300 generations what did they do how
did they eat how did they live and
that’s really what we’re trying to base
all of this on because our DNA is
exactly the same as their DNA it’s no
different the DNA’s the same what’s
changed is our diet that’s why everybody
that’s when we have epidemics of obesity
and inflammatory disease and autoimmune
disease and type 2 diabetes is because
of our diet okay so when you go back in
time did they eat did they eat car and
you know just huge amounts of carbs and
starches and sugars every day no they
did not they didn’t they very seldom did
that that’s why they were all lean and
healthy and unless they got eaten by a
saber-tooth or they fell off a cliff or
they drowned in the river they lived to
order they succumb to some infection
they live two ripe old ages and were
very vigorous ladened into life that’s
what we’re trying to do is mimic their
good health and their vitality so once a
year every year or two back then they
would come upon a honey tree right and
and what do you think they all did they
ate all the honey that they could hold I
guarantee you they did that because it
tastes so good and they’ve laid around
the honey tree in a sugar coma for three
or four days but that happened once a
year right and then if your ancestors
lived in temperate climates basically
not near the equator at all then in the
in the fall season the fruit all got
right at the same time and so there was
all this sweet tasty fruit hanging on
the trees what do you think your
ancestors did with that fruit they ate
it
that’s exactly right they ate as much as
they could hold and they gained weight
so that when the winter came they didn’t
starve to death okay so what you did
over the holidays is something that’s
been happening for thousands and
thousands of years
you ate as as many carbs as many sugars
and starches as you could hold so what I
don’t want you to do is feel bad about
that or feel guilty about that that’s
not that big of a deal now if you’re
doing that every day that’s a big deal
and that’s going to lead to inflammation
and disease type 2 diabetes autoimmune
diseases it’s going to lead to all that
if you’re doing that on a daily or
almost daily basis but if you just did
that over the holidays forget about it
forgive yourself move on act like it
didn’t happen
another thing I tell patients is if
you’re religious at all and you’ve
sinned right against your your God do
you just say well that’s it I sinned
just forget it I’ll just just forget
religion I won’t be religious anymore
you don’t do that you pray forgiveness
and you get back in the church pew and
you move on and that’s what you need to
do with your diet you had a good holiday
you enjoyed good food with your family
now it’s time to get back in the saddle
as I say and and forget about it it’s no
big deal it’s just like thirty thousand
years ago when they found the honey tree
they ate all the honey and that’s what
you did over the holidays here is you
ate all the honey but that did not make
them fat
and inflamed and diabetic because they
didn’t do it every day that’s the key
concept is you can have a holiday you
can have a cheap meal it’s not a big
deal you just can’t have it every day or
every week make sense so forgive
yourself and get right back on your
intermittent fasting schedule get right
back on your ketogenic diet get right
back on your paleo or primal diet act
like it never happened because in the
big picture
cheating one day like that really has no
meaningful effect on your health at all
it has no meaningful effect on your
hemoglobin a1c on your blood sugar on
your insulin level it’s no big deal so
stop feeling guilty right now you I’m
talking to you stop that stop feeling
guilty get back on the horse and act
like it never happens now if if this
message of encouragement and hope helped
you to see the bigger picture which is
what really going for here then please

every time I get a bright idea you’ll be
one of the first to know and if you have
a family member or a friend who needs
these words of encouragement and to know
that it’s no big deal if you cheated
over the holidays it’s not a big deal at
