Is Intermittent Fasting On A High Carb Diet Bad?

hey guys so I’ve been getting a lot of
concerning questions lately regarding
incident fasting and high carb diets so
basically the question or the
controversy you could say is should I be
doing intermittent fasting on a regular
basis if I follow a diet which is high
in carbohydrates and the answer isn’t as
simple as you think it’s not just yes or
no basically it depends right it depends
on you as a person and how you react to
fasting and high carb diets um but I’m
gonna cover all aspects weight loss
irritability and those sorts of things
and let’s get into the question and get
an answer for you guys who are concerned
about this so the first question is
weight loss can you lose weight eat
quite a lot of carbs each day and do
intimate fasting every single day and
the answer is yes
carbs are not inherently fattening no
evidence points to this no matter what
anybody says carbs are not inherently
fattening they just are not right
calories is all that matters when we’re
talking about weight loss so you can
lose weight eat carbs and do intamin
fasting there’s absolutely nothing wrong
with us but there can be some problems
that arise for certain people when
they’re eating quite a lot of
carbohydrates and doing intamin fasting
the problem is that you may get
irritable you may get a lot of cravings
during the day during your fast when
you’re following a high carb diet as
opposed to somebody who’s lower in carbs
or to the other extreme you know and
ketosis so let me explain what that
means very quickly and then I can
explain exactly what I’m trying to get
it so you’re either a sugar boner or a
fat burner most people are dependent on
glucose such as myself as well you know
I eat foods which are typically high in
carbs like potatoes I love potatoes I
think that great I think carbohydrates
are important for testosterone
production I think carbs are great right
so um because I’m eating a lot of
carbohydrates in my meals sometimes I
don’t but a lot of the time I do now
that I’m trying to gain a bit of weight
and muscle so because I’m eating carbs
my body is fueling itself mainly of
glucose and
that’s life that’s what it likes right
you know our brain needs a lot of
glucose our muscles
thrive on glucose so when you’re eating
mostly carbohydrates or anything over 5
or 10 percent carbohydrates you your
sugar burner but once you lower your
carbs very very low and when you up your
fats as well you begin to transition
into the mere bollocks state of ketosis
meaning you’re metabolizing endogenous
and or exogenous fat stores and you’re
metabolizing them and to ketone bodies
like acetone and beta-hydroxybutyrate
and these become your source of fuel and
you can become keto adapted where over
time your primary source of fuel becomes
these ketone bodies you’re still using
some glucose and you’re making that
through protein or glycerol um but your
main source of fuel is ketones so you
either a ketone or fat burner or sugar
burn so fasting is a way to induce
ketosis because you have an absence of
carbohydrates and thus once your liver
glycogen is depleted your body begins to
produce ketone bodies in order to fuel
the brain but this can cause some
potential problems if your body is
adapted to using glucose and from
carbohydrates as fuel because once you
stop eating them and you start your
fasting your body isn’t as efficient at
using ketone bodies for fuel unless you
become hungry your body’s expecting
carbohydrates and you you start to crave
them right and you want them and it’s
more difficult to fast for a prolonged
period of time as opposed to somebody
who’s following a little carb diet on a
regular basis so that’s like two people
they both have a goal of doing 20 hours
of fasting per day that eating 2,000
calories each one is eating 70% of their
calories from carbohydrates the other is
eating 70% of their calories from fat
the person who’s eating 70% of their
calories from fat is going to have a
much easier time going up to 20 hours of
fasting you’re gonna start getting
cravings if you’re the person that’s at
70% carbohydrates but if you’re eating
mostly of fat and you’re reducing those
carbs it’s going to be much easier for
you to continue in that state of ketosis
because you’re already likely in one and
when you’re in a state of ketosis your
appetite is reduced rather dramatically
so one isn’t necessarily worse or better
in terms of weight loss but if you’re
eating quite a lot of carbohydrates
those cravings might be kind of a
knowing you might get kind of irritable
and that can cause some potential
problems it’s not to say that you
shouldn’t do it but especially if you’re
going to be going over 20 hours over 24
hours then you probably want to be sure
that you’re eating a low carb meal or a
few meals before that in order to induce
a light state of ketosis in order to
preserve muscle so you know you have
three options in my opinion based on
personal experience what I’ve seen in
the research and what I’ve seen work for
others and clients and what I believe
you should do is yet you have three
options the first is you either go
really low carb ketogenic style and you
combine that with intamin fasting that
works really perfect and it’s
synergistic and if done right it can be
healthy and good um but if you don’t
want to do that that’s fine as well
you can follow a normal diet you know
you’re eating a balanced ratio of carbs
fat protein you’re eating kind of
frequently and you put in a bit of
intamin fasting here and there every few
days for example do you eat between 12
and 8 so you’re doing 16 hours of
fasting and that can work great for you
as well um the next thing you can do and
I think this works really well for a lot
of people is to do something closer to
the warrior diet or one meal a day so
you’re eating between like one two three
or four hours max and that’s your eating
window and you’re fasting for the rest
of the time and you can eat Cubs and
that will work quite well because you
spend quite a lot of time in ketosis
when you’re in in a prolonged period of
fasting for 18 to 22 hours and I think
that works quite well you run into
trouble when you’re trying to do like
like 17 to 19 hours of fasting but
you’re eating a lot of carbs that’s when
you’re gonna start getting a lot of
cravings at least I sort of experienced
myself and what I’ve seen for others and
from reports it’s difficult to kind of
get Studies on this because these are
very specific examples
unfortunately because they apply to a
lot of people so that’s my bus you
either go keto low-carb and intermittent
fasting do a bit of fasting hare in
there just when you feel like it all go
for something like one mill a day or the
warrior diet and eat whatever you want
and do if it fits your macros and you’re
eating window period so that’s my
recommendation for you additionally if
your eating quite a lot of carbohydrates
you also want to make sure you’re
getting enough protein you don’t want to
be
very very low on protein proteins gonna
help you stay fuller it’s gonna increase
things like peptide YY which keeps your
appetite a tryst and I’m getting like a
balanced ratio of macronutrients is
going to be quite important be sure to
be consuming enough fiber right if
you’re consuming a low fiber and you’re
eating a lot of carbohydrates that means
you’re having a lot of sugar that means
your insulin your blood glucose levels
are gonna be all over the place
so you want to be consuming foods high
in fiber I like sweet potatoes
cruciferous vegetables stuff that’s
going to allow that glucose that are
released gradually in the body low
glycemic fruits are another great choice
as well so try to keep your fiber up
keep your protein adequate and not too
low
keep good fats in your diet saturated
fats monounsaturated fats and keep
enough fat in your diet it’s a point for
slowing down digestion as well and just
avoid those refined sugars and you
should be fine also fasting and then
exercising and breaking your fast with
quite a few carbohydrates can be a good
idea get in most of carbs after that
workout and then finish your last meal
if you’re doing two meals with a high
fat lower carb meal just to extend that
period of nutritional and fasting
ketosis there’s something you can also
consider there you really have to play
around with this and you will see how
you feel you know for example for myself
if I do like 17 18 hours of fasting and
I’m eating a lot of carbs especially if
I’m not eating enough fiber I feel that
I’m fatigued and I don’t have enough
energy but if I do oh mad or if I do
keto then I know I have a lot of energy
and I’m gonna be fine um so you have to
experiment with your own body if to
figure out what works for you just treat
yourself like a little science
experiment and record down your energy
levels what you did that day and then
just over time you can quantify what
you’re doing when you feel energetic and
you’re gonna find patterns to find what
works for you as an individual right
we’re all different so please understand
that alright guys until the next video
I’ll see you guys later
leave all your concerns down below or
your comments or your questions and I
will get to answering them in video form
whenever I can in the future so
basically the conclusion for this video
is you can do high carbon enzmann
fasting for weight loss it comes down to
your caloric intake
but if you’re eating a very high carb
low in fiber and low in protein you may
kind of crash with energy you may get a
lot of cravings so in some it’s
important to understand what works for
you as an individual and tweak those
hours of fasting and tweak those
macronutrients in order to have stable
energy levels and a reduction in
cravings because enzmann fasting is not
supposed to be some sort of burden where
you’re completely hungry rights
defeating the purpose you’re supposed to
try to get into a state of ketosis
because that’s where you get many of the
benefits from so thanks for watching and
I’ll see you guys next time peace
