In this video we’re talking about intermittent
fasting on a ketogenic diet.
This is an important topic because when I’m
in my clinic working with these different
patients what I typically find is that a lot
of people try to do intermittent fasting because
they saw something about it on the internet
but they’re trying to do it with a diet that
doesn’t service intermittent fasting well.
Let me give you a couple examples.
So, first of all, I see a lot of people who
are doing the vegan diet who are trying to
do intermittent fasting, and they struggle
a lot.
The reason for this is because they’re following
a very restrictive diet and then they’re following
a restrictive eating pattern.
As a result, they create a very restrictive
lifestyle that is not sustainable.
Now, another variation that I see, people
are trying to follow the standard American
diet.
A diet that’s high in sugar, carbohydrates,
toxicity because you’re consuming a lot of
preservatives and artificial flavors and colors,
and so, you want to make sure that if we’re
following that diet, we are not doing intermittent
fasting at the same time because you’re not
going to be getting proper issues and you’re
going to cause some issues for yourself.
And so, the standard American diet is also
a very challenging diet to follow when intermittent
fasting.
Now, one of the best diets to follow when
intermittent fasting is going to be the ketogenic
diet, or a low carb diet and what I mean by
that is, you don’t have to follow the ketogenic
diet to the point where you’re measuring your
blood ketones and you’re making sure you never
come out of ketosis, you could actually do
a good low carb diet where you’re just allowing
a little bit more carbs in your diet and follow
intermittent fasting and see great success
and results with that as well.
So, when I see my different patients that
come into my clinic.
Essentially what I always tell them is that
following ketogenic diet or a low carb diet
is going to always serve intermittent fasting
best because you’re not going to have big
blood sugar swings and as a result of not
having big blood sugars swing you are going
to find yourself not crashing throughout the
day and you’re not going to have those huge
highs and lows where you’re getting angry
because you’re hungry, and then you can’t
focus at all, and then all of the sudden you
just are glittery and you have a ton of energy,
right?
So, people who are following a good diet with
intermittent fasting don’t have that problem
The other thing that’s great about this style
of diet is that it’s very satiating.
That is very satiating.
It holds you over for a long time until you
just have a nice, even kill of energy for
a long time throughout the entire day because
you’re eating a diet that has high fat and
it’s a very, very good source of energy for
the body.
Now, you’re also going to have less craving
because it’s satiating, because you’re not
having blood sugars, you’re going to have
less cravings.
Some of the things people struggle with intermittent
fasting, one meal a day is really intense
cravings.
They just have a lot of hunger pain and a
lot of people don’t like that so, if we want
to have less of that then make sure that we’re
following the ketogenic diet.
Another reason it’s important is because we
want to make sure that we have a balanced
nutrient profile like, if you’re following
the vegan diet, if you’re following the standard
American diet you could have some nutrient
issues because one of the things is, first
of all, these are diets that are restrictive
but also diets that just have really low quality
foods in them and so, if we want to have a
balanced nutrient profile following a low
carb diet that is going to be high in fat,
that’s going to be moderate in protein and
low in carbohydrates, lots of veggies in it,
then that’s going to be the best way to get
really optimal nutrient intakes so we don’t
put yourself into a micro-nutrient deficient.
Now, last thing I want to mention here is
the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting,
which one you should do first.
Some people say well, should I start intermittent
fasting and then transition into the ketogenic
diet and I actually recommend in reverse that
you actually start the ketogenic diet and
then transition into intermittent fasting.
Because, when you start the ketogenic diet,
what’s going to happen is, you’re actually
going to turn your body into a fat burning
machine and so, you start burning the fat
on your body for energy and then, when you
go intermittent fasting and you’re going through
those fasted periods, essentially, your body’s
always adapted and ready to go.
Your body knows how to burn ketones for energy,
it knows how to burn that fat for energy.
So, as a result, the intermittent fasting
is much, much easier to do.
So, when we look at intermittent fasting and
the best diet to follow, make sure you’re
following a low carb diet or a ketogenic diet.
