Is the Keto Diet Dangerous – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

Is the Keto Diet Dangerous – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

July 26, 2019 15 By William Morgan


hello everyone welcome to Mind Blowing
Health and Wellness with Violet Pat chat
edition I’m Violet and I’m Pat we make
these videos because we want to help you
to understand more about the key to
doing lifestyle
Patrick finds a lot of articles and
interesting ideas because he does get a
lot of things about keto into his news
feed and we decided to talk about them
to help you guys to learn how to make
better decisions and to kind of weed out
the bad articles from the good ones I
think I’m hoping at some point we’re
gonna talk about a good one but anyways
let’s see what he has for you today
there’s a little bad ones okay well this
week this week topic I think the dangers
of going we feel like if people like
people come across those articles like
yeah I think we need to discuss and like
to do like a counter analysis of those
elements dangers of doing the dangers of
doing kedo first things your gut health
so whole-grain bread rolled holes few
legumes these are like all no-go on the
ketogenic diet like last week we saw
before that we can have a little bit of
fruit but like it’s not does the card
were cutting out by eliminating those
those food is the fiber that they can
take on things so you we know that we
need a certain amount of fiber per day
for our regularity you guys said so so
what do you have to say to to someone
who would freak out like seeing that
danger oh my god I don’t have like any
fiber in my diet and I won’t be able to
go to bathroom and so first of all what
I would say is that it’s not the fiber
that causes us to go to the bathroom
because obviously especially one soluble
fiber yes it does move through us but
when it gets the fibers some of the
fiber that goes into our gut feeds the
microbes that live in our gut so it’s
like a double-edged sword in that in the
sense that if I don’t eat fiber then the
microbes that would have eaten that
fiber aren’t there so therefore I don’t
need to feed them because they’re not
there
however that’s not gonna stop me from
going to the bathroom so for two
different reasons the other so any food
that I eat is going to pass through my
intestines period because that’s how we
pull nutrients out of our food today it
has to pass through my body mechanism so
the I can recall that this is the
peristaltic like that thing that your
intestines do to push through food
through is still gonna happen
but the other thing that I will say is
what’s the other thing we can eat to
help us go to bathroom so how many
people start keto and end up having
diarrhea right so the idea that only
farber can help that’s not sure hmm and
there are a lot of people who do
carnivore
I guess what they do go to the bathroom
regularly mm-hmm
when I fasted I didn’t miss a day went
to the bathroom I was eating nothing I
did seven days I didn’t miss a day so by
day two you know that there was nothing
coming out of me that was put in that
day and still I was going to the
bathroom you don’t need to have fiber
right like so how it’s gonna affect your
microbiome though I’m waiting to hear
what they have to say before I say more
stuff each each danger is very so the
other thing that I would say about your
microbiome so your gut bacteria and
everything is that your gut bacteria is
there to help you to digest what you eat
so if I’m eating certain foods I will
have the microbiome to support eating
those foods so obviously when we eat a
lot of carbs coming from grains and and
and fruit and veg then we have the
microbiome to process carbs coming but
if you eat more fats
if you eat more meats then you have the
microbiome to process those things right
your body is not gonna keep it can’t
even do it how would those microbes
survive if they
have what they eat you see so it’s it’s
very related whatever you’re eating is
going that’s why some people when they
switch have a little bit of a hard time
at first because they’re microbiome is
expecting one thing and is getting
something else yeah but still like if
you do a reasonably balanced keto
lifestyle you eat salad you like oh you
eat a lot of vegetables eating grains
yeah because the only thing you so
basically just to point something out to
you because again I just love when they
hand meat this kind of stuff so I’m
gonna eat grains so I have fiber when I
could eat cabbage
I could eat lettuce I could eat Rock Lee
I could eat cauliflower right so like do
I need to eat grains to get fiber when I
can eat these other things it’s not
logical right
like I’m still gonna get fired so not a
real danger people okay second danger
heart health okay so basically like the
argument here is making a difference
between good fats bad fats so there’s no
problem with olive oil like Oh abakada
oil seeds nuts to support optimal brain
and heart health the problem with the
the author of the author of the article
is like with people that put spoons full
spoonfuls of butter in their coffee just
cook everything in in bacon oil bacon
fat
oh is there such a thing as good oils
versus bad oils yes and like what he
mentioned has bad oil or they really bad
oils so there is such a thing as girls
versus battles but not ones he’s talking
about any man-made oil so if you’re
talking about margarine if you’re
talking about canola oil vegetable oil
like those are man-made oils and those
are absolutely horrible for your body
but when you’re talking about first of
all the school with the butter idea
let’s start there mmm so if I understood
him well because I don’t eat bread
eating butter is gonna hurt me but if I
eat bread might put some butter on it
I’m gonna make these articles they’re
like let’s be realistic most people who
are having us toast is putting what on
it right my first problem there is that
his his concern is that I’m putting the
butter in my coffee
not on my toast this concern is more
with saturated fat in general so animal
fats so the second part I’m gonna say is
that we have because we read that all
the time that like saturated fats animal
fats are bad for your heart it’s the
same people they’re telling us that cars
are good for Suzette’s is that butter
and lard in our bodies are metabolized
well and they don’t cause inflammation
versus canola oil causes inflammation
omega-6 versus omega threes that you get
from in butter and so there’s a again
I’m not gonna pretend to know all the
percentages and whatever because I don’t
okay I’m gonna say that right off the
bat what I do know is that every doctor
that I’ve heard talk about first of all
bacon
second of all butter lard have all said
there’s no issue with having them in
reasonable quantities if you have
anything in an unreasonable quantity
you’re gonna create a situation for
yourself if you are eating a pound of
butter a day I don’t care what the
doctor says you’re gonna have a problem
in treating me right but if you’re
eating a normal amount of butter and
again so let’s say a serving a butter in
something whether it’s butter now the
butter alone if no regardless of where
you’re putting that butter it’s a
reasonable amount of butter you’re gonna
be fine the problem that most people
have is that they’re gonna try to link
butter lard bacon to cholesterol issues
it’s not the same thing your cholesterol
being so the negative cholesterol is
happening because of chemical reactions
that are happening in your body because
you eat too many carbs and I’m not gonna
again I’m not a doctor I’m not gonna go
into all the details if you want those
kind of details visit you know dr.
Beckmann I think it was but there’s a
a few doctors I’m sorry I’m gonna get
their names on so I’m not gonna throw
names out but there’s many doctors that
have been at keitel conferences that
have talked about why high density
cholesterol versus low density
cholesterol look the way they look and
are problematic the way that they’re
problematic or not but the one thing
that came across that was very clear is
that cholesterol itself is not a problem
if we don’t eat it
our body makes it so it’s not a problem
the thing is is that again I wouldn’t
suggest anyone to overeat butter the
same way that I wouldn’t suggest anyone
to overeat you know anything like it
doesn’t matter if I overeat it that
means I’m eating more than my body needs
put in your coffee or you cook with it
like as long as you keep track of what
you eat and also as long as you’re not
forced feeding it to yourself like you
see the thing that I would say is that
if I’m putting it in my coffee because I
feel like I have to get a certain amount
and I’m trying to hit a number okay you
know what eat until you’re satiated when
you’re satiated stop eating if you do
that the chances are very good you’re
not gonna overeat right because fat is
hard to overeat right you actually have
to work at it
because it’s very filling so if you just
eat normally and stop when you’re saying
not when you’re full stop when you’re
satiated that means I’m not hungry
anymore I stop eating so those people
who are eating even when they’re not
hungry
yes a possibility that you could end up
overeating that so in the end what what
what do we want to avoid what fats do
the man me I mean those are vegetable
oil margarine canola all the oils that
are not naturally sourced so if you can
cold press it and get it as an oil yay
if you have to chemically extract it
from that’s not natural that’s not
natural
okay third danger bone health don’t help
coming from the fact that we don’t drink
milk
we don’t eat yogurt you don’t like those
eyes sugar yogurt
so so basically calcium yeah once they
once dairy is wiped out it’s rather hard
to get enough calcium without careful
planning and that could be detrimental
to your bone health and quality of life
in the long run you know I don’t know
any where do we get our calcium
I don’t you guys ever tried this
vegetable called collard greens it’s
really popular in to us I guess what it
has a lot of calcium guess what
vegetables they have magnesium calcium
they’re prosperous they have all kinds
of again you know basically what this
article is trying to say is that there’s
only one source of cotton is not true
I’m sorry what about all of the people
who are absolutely allergic to milk like
myself or let it was anyways I’m not
anymore but that’s a whole other thing
was it the carbs I don’t know but
anyways what about all the people who
are detrimental allergic to milk right
so where do they get their calcium from
it doesn’t make sense there’s multiple
places that you can get calcium yeah so
it’s really about making sure that
you’re getting what you need the other
thing that I’ll point out is that you
know if we eat nutrient-dense vegetables
and we have balance so we’re trying to
eat buried and also if we decide to be
carnivore and eat nose-to-tail and try
to get right either of those scenarios
can make sure that you have all the
micronutrients that you need and all the
minerals that you need it’s just about
making choices if I’m not gonna drink
milk you know I will allow myself to get
my calcium from other sources because of
course milk is I think it’s a no-go on
our diet because it’s I think 12 to 18
14 grams per cup or something like that
we already talked about those i fat
plain yogurt that has only 5 grams so
that these are a little bit easier to
fit to fit in your diet if you have room
like I think it’s a 5 grams per 3/4 cups
of of 10% fat yogurt and how much
calcium are you getting I don’t because
like is it worth of
five grams of carbs that I have to have
to get that calcium when I could eat us
some Swiss chard I eat some other
vegetable again do your research if the
calcium is something so osteoporosis if
that’s something that you’re trying to
work on you do your research what I can
say is that I do think that for every
person who’s doing keto making sure that
you have buried vegetables and that
you’re tracking them so that you can see
in whatever calculated that you’re using
I’m not pushing any particular one just
look and make sure that your
micronutrients are saying that you’re
getting the quantities that’s healthy
for you right again it’s an estimate
right but if I’m closer to hitting my
numbers when I have a variety then that
tells you that you’re doing your you’re
balancing well right and the other thing
is again nose to tail make sure you eat
the whole animal and then you make sure
that you’re getting what you need
because the animal eats badge okay
that’s good for bone the other thing
that you can do and I mean this is it’s
just a suggestion I still I think it’d
be better for you to get it from your
veg and your meat but the other
possibility is that you could also take
like a supplement of some sort like I
know a lot of people talk about Zipf is
because it has a high amount of
potassium in it personally I kind of
like Vegas sport I take it once in a
while that has less potassium in it but
of course I can add potassium because
you can put you can put cream of tartar
in it and so you can add a little out of
potassium that you want so there’s
there’s ways of getting the minerals
that you want if you’re not eating
nose-to-tail um or eating varied veg I
tend to eat varied veg but like I said
least recently I’ve been eating more
meat not as much varied veg because I’m
not eating those to tell I had a
supplement if I was eating throws to
tale I wouldn’t bother you need to know
what you’re doing you need to be paying
attention to how
you’re eating right I’m constantly
looking at what I’m eating from day to
day and making adjustments of am i doing
a supplement or do I not need the
segment because I did really well right
pay attention
maybe another warning and I would like
because I I do I do eat the yogurt
because I I do like the dairy doer
just be careful though even though if
it’s a vanilla yogurt even the vanilla
yogurt as a ridiculous amount of sugar
so you really need to go plane for shut
in the beginning it’s a little bit harsh
to let the taste is different but like
if you can find like 10 percent fat
yogurt like it is very like it’s very
smooth it is very good it’s more like
those zero percent yogurt that like or
more like harsh but like why would you
go really yeah that’s the thing so so
that 10 percent yogurt is a good choice
if you can put it in your in your
numbers iron like we need to talk about
iron so if you’re wondering why ayran is
at risk on a meat-based diet
amia many grains food provide a
considerable considerable amount of iron
because all grains naturally contain
iron in their inner layer called the
germ another reason is that some green
product can have iron added due to their
manufacturing probably the one that so
once you cut grains out your irons type
status could suffer which can lead to
unpleasant symptoms like tiredness and
liturgical lethargy it can even
compromise your immune system first of
all animals so we are animals need heme
iron which you don’t get from grains
that’s per one when they add iron to
things they’re adding non heme so again
that’s not that’s that’s not helping us
that’s part 1 part 2 yes the iron in
these things was found in the durum we
don’t get that part they take that off
doesn’t taste great so what ends up
happening and you know what this would
be Claire a company can claim that it’s
whole-grain if they put I camera the
percent of which I think was five
percent of
Durham back in come on like that’s a
joke
right and it might even be less than
five percent I I’m guessing five percent
I can’t exactly remember when I read
them I was like we were you’re joking
when you if you are iron deficient trust
me it’s not because you’re not eating
cranes right if you’re iron deficient is
because you’re not eating the
appropriate amount of ready
well meat in general I don’t eat red
meat mm-hmm and I’m not RN deficient but
you need to everybody needs to know
themselves right if you need more iron I
would always start with meat I would
always start with I don’t know how much
fish
all right but I mean anything that has
blood running through it so should have
but I would start with meat right sure
like I said there is iron in and veg but
it’s it’s non heme so if you want it if
you’re missing it you want to go with
the quality of iron that’s gonna jump
right into you and that’s him so that
comes from animals yeah so that that
whole paragraph I’m just like wow really
I knew you just like but you see how
confusing it can you because he makes
this argument that sounds so good if you
don’t know that the difference between
the iron in veg and the iron or in
grains and the iron in in animals it’s
the same way that they sell us vitamin D
and they won’t tell us that is vitamin
d2 which comes from plants which the
half-life in a human is ridiculously low
versus if they would give us d3 which is
what you should be taking if you’re
taking any vitamin D the half-life in d2
is like a day and the half-life in d3 is
seven days so that means I can actually
take less of the d3 and have a better
effect than what I’m taking on the d2
but even similarly if I take the same
amount I’m having an amazing effect on
the d3 so it just doesn’t make sense
fifth danger disease risk ooh so so so
so you might be surprised to learn that
many non keto friendly food are
associated with
whole lot of health benefits so by
cutting them out you forego any many of
their perks fruit for example we talked
about food last week fruit for example
is is brimming really brimming with a
range of and we talked also about
antioxidants that help like fight damage
to your body cells
another example is grain foods with are
associated with reduced risk of heart
disease diabetes and some Chaya biddies
mia and some cancers some goes for
legumes too maybe we want to take them
like piece by piece fruits so entire
antioxidants includes and fruits okay I
know we talked about blackberries last
in the previous video last week I know
blackberries has a like a good amount of
antioxidants and they’re not too sweet
is that do I need antioxidants if I’m
not overeating carbs oh okay right what
causing this oxidation what’s and what’s
causing all the problems in my what’s
causing inflammation what’s causing it
right like do I actually need
antioxidants if I’m reading curtains
good point right like there’s a part of
me that I let again you know the hole
that hole and again I wish I was a
doctor because I could not way I could
remember this information well but I
should probably link the video that I
got it from if I can remember if I can
find the video but this whole idea that
the sugar that we eat and the
cholesterol and why it becomes the
problem that it becomes is that
connection that happens to the oxidation
issue that happens and again I’m not a
doctor so I can’t I can’t go into the
details I remember reading this and
thinking wow how did we get it so wrong
because people are being pushed to eat
carby things your body is going to
produce cholesterol the problem will
just always be there whereas if I don’t
eat car be things the cholesterol my
body doesn’t get that negative so again
I wish I was a doctor so that that would
have stuck with me better but when I
watched it I was truthfully amazed so do
I
antioxidant oh the other thing is you
know what like for the amount of sugar
that I get from the fruit to get some
antioxidants are there other ways to get
those antioxidants would I get them from
that I’m gonna you know like so and do I
need them but this the other thing like
so it’s I don’t I’m not what I’m
actually gonna I’m gonna stay
middle-of-the-road I’m not gonna be I’m
not gonna scream but I’m not gonna I’m
gonna save me a little road because I
feel like from what I know and what I’ve
already shared with you guys like the
benefit of antioxidants is nowhere near
the catastrophe of the amount of
fructose that you’re gonna ingest and
the harm you’re gonna do to your liver
so if I kill my liver does it matter
that I had some antioxidants like I I
have a hard time with that
eat better quality food and then you
won’t need all those what about like not
even whole grain foods like grain foods
and diabetes like in the grains it’s
gonna push you so fast towards diabetes
that I don’t even understand what that
that what he’s trying to say how old
whole grains
I don’t because I’m the person but like
is is an online and sydney-based
accredited practicing dietitian we feed
a video about like okay so this
dietitian is saying what how was grains
gonna stop me from having diabetes no
yeah don’t they they don’t say the wise
but they don’t just like the order just
say they do but like but like since we
did the video basically not being very
pro keto problem that I have you may be
saying like that grains are gonna help
me not acquire diabetes okay
the way that we acquire diabetes is by
having too many carbohydrates in our
blood over a long period of time because
that causes our insulin levels to stay
high when insulin levels are high we
become resistant to the effective
insulin when we become resistant to the
effect of insulin that causes our body
then not to be able to put the carbs
away which means everybody has to
produce more insulin to get the cars we
put away at some point we cannot produce
enough insulin to put away the carbs
that we’re eating grains are carbon you
say that out loud again
the more I eat carbs the more I engage
the system the more my body struggles to
put those carbs wait till the point
where I can no longer put the carbs away
and that’s the definition of diabetes so
I’m struggling right now to understand
how eating carbs grains carbs grains or
carbs how eating carbs is gonna stop me
from becoming diabetic it will actually
push me towards becoming diabetic that’s
like saying I should drink alcohol every
day to not become an alcoholic it
doesn’t make sense honestly all of those
five dangers seems that I feel they’re
coming right from the Canadian nutrition
guide they need that like or pushing
grains I’ve been pushing grains for how
many years now because especially in
Canada we’re a big producer of the girlf
grain so yeah so at that point we’re
back to the story that I’m always afraid
of which is are you trying to sell me
something and so you know if everything
that that’s being said in this article
is towards getting me to abandon the
lifestyle that helped me to regulate my
weight helped me to regulate my
inflammation helped me to regulate my
arthritis that I thought was coming on
because I was having help me to regulate
my joint pain which kind of could be
considered arthritis help me to regulate
my like I don’t know what I would call
it but like I’m feel more clear and I
feel like if you’re telling me that
everything in this article is saying
that everything I did to feel amazing
somehow is hurting me you know what I’m
willing take my chances I’m gonna keep
doing this because I was doing that and
I had all those symptoms right I started
doing this sometimes gone right and I
can tell you
what is this 13 month no 14 15 15 months
later I feel better I maintained I’m
still feel 15 months – sorry 13 15
months so 10 months later I’m still at
the same weight so I’ve maintained for
10 months and I don’t really feel like
it’s changing I’m still doing one meal a
day maybe 10 10 ish months later I don’t
feel like that’s gonna change where’s
the negative right I don’t see the
negative hmm so we all have to make our
decisions I can no more tell you what to
do then this person is gonna tell me
what to do but you need to listen to the
arguments that they’re giving and say
and ask yourself is this really in line
with what the doctors and all the
research that’s coming out of things
like Kido conferences is it in line with
what we’re being now made aware of
because you know 500 years ago I have to
go back that far how many hundred years
ago was it before they realized that we
need to wash our hands before he did
surgery or we would kill people right
and they were against it they said it’s
ridiculous doctors are gentlemen
gentlemen cannot be dirty that was their
reasoning to not wash their hands
doctors are gentlemen and gentlemen
cannot be dirty would go from a cadaver
to a person listen when we start to
learn new information and when and when
things are being proven to be correct
it’s really important for us to really
listen out and figure out how are we
going to make these changes fit in with
what we’re trying to do right so I’m my
suggestion to everybody when things
don’t make sense I do more research
check it out don’t just take it from
face value oh my goodness if I don’t eat
grains I’m going to become diabetic
like clearly that’s not true if she do
but yeah so this is this was my little
article so yeah just like like you said
just be careful what you read be like to
say like wise enough to do your research
to to to see the counter-arguments like
because from like as many bad articles
they’re good articles yeah for sure
have you guys encountered any articles
that were telling you that Quito somehow
was gonna harm you I would love to hear
