Keto Athlete – Is It a Fairy Tale – Healthy Ketogenic Diet

August 8, 2019 7 By William Morgan


hello everyone welcome to Mind Blowing
Health and Wellness with Violet Pat chat
edition I’m Violet and I’m Pat the reason
we make these videos is because Patrick
finds interesting articles online
sometimes good sometimes confusing and
we like to go through them with you guys
so just dispel some of the
misinformation that we can find online
or promote the good information that we
find online I’m not sure it’s coming to
me today so I’m gonna let Patrick take
over this one like today this is this
article when I read it like I did find
it frustrating like with the bunch of BS
there wasn’t that article like this is a
perfect example like how you should guys
be careful when you read that kind of
article since a short article but like
and it’s missing references and stuff
but like it’s missing reference yeah
yeah let’s go through the ideas because
it’s like it start with what while once
embraced by diet culture the low-carb
craze has begun to elf to infiltrate the
nutrient regiments of athletes oh yeah
so we’re talking about more athletes
like like we already did like in the
past but so first thing instead of using
the most convenient and natural form of
energy carbohydrates those who follow
this diet 5 philosophy predominately
relying on animal-based fat and protein
stores to get them to their workout well
the first thing that I would say is that
how convenient were carbohydrates 500
600 mm thousand years ago before we had
agriculture how can be or carbohydrates
actually the more convenient form of
energy was to catch some kind of animal
and eat it and eat it right so we would
have more than likely have been focused
on animal proteins and fats so it’s
pretty insane but the other thing I’m
gonna say is that is it because
something is convenient that is what we
should be doing
hmm you know a lot of us would that
would mean for a lot of us that we
should be eating at fast food
restaurants every day rather than
cooking because it’s much more
convenient that would mean that well why
the heck bothered to do any exercise
because lazing around the house is much
more convenient I don’t I don’t try ever
to do what’s can be
and I try to do what’s better for me
mm-hmm so I wouldn’t encourage anyone to
do what’s convenient unless it’s
convenient and better for you if it’s
convenient but putting you in a bad
metabolic situation in a bad financial
situation in a bad work situation in a
bad relationship situation don’t do it
mm-hmm so that’s my comment on
convenient okay
so while some may claim to make gains in
the gym with the keto those who take
this idea to okay those who take this
idea too far not only can hold
themselves back in regards to
performance we already covered that
wasn’t like super true either but also
wreak long-term havoc on their bodies
without any like yeah so I’ll connect
keto wreak havoc on our bodies I’m being
sarcastic you I think the thing that I
find interesting there is are talking
about getting gains in the gym so we
have so many examples of keto people in
the space that are doing well physically
so we have keto savage and his wife
Crystal who you know what’s funny about
crystal and I only learned this recently
so when crystal met keto savage she was
not a bodybuilder okay she’s only been
working out could I say this you’re
gonna like three years okay and she
looks how she looks
mm-hmm three years being on keto
obviously yeah so but it’s like it’s a
combination right because when she met
him she was typical you know like
whatever she wasn’t working out so it’s
it’s amazing to me that she’s able to
accomplish what she’s accomplished the
other person I would point you towards
his good he beats the other person I
would point towards his Jason would work
although Jason does clearly state that
he was not doing keto initially he was
doing a regular diet and he was already
doing weightlifting etc but he’s
maintained doing keto um another person
Logan Logan Snead sorry
Logan’s need another one that does a
ketogenic lifestyle my point being and
these are you know I just gave you four
different people and they’re all
slightly different five people including
Crystal slightly different body types so
you can have the look that you were
trying to look if working out is what
you’re trying to accomplish and still be
doing a kid Janek lifestyle I think it’s
a fallacy to believe that there’s only
one way to get games and Jim than that
you have to be eating carbs to get gains
so at the end of the day you have to ask
yourself about what you’re trying to
accomplish this is about being healthy
or is it just about looking a certain
way and even if you’re trying to look a
certain way you can accomplish it doing
here I’m gonna say it again
like just go on youtube and watch videos
of bodybuilders like in the 70s versus
bodybuilder is like now the guy is like
at the time especially I’m thinking
about almost Rose Nagar like he was just
eating steak and eggs like most of the
time so they were more likely to diet
like going more towards fats than than
carbs and and you like see the
difference like in their their waistline
and like it’s incredible so it may be no
it must be noted that while the orders
represent a well-rounded pool of
perspectives and specialties this
analysis was sponsored by the Alliance
of for potato research and education so
this is Canada sign for you guys to see
if like the article is biased or not so
you have an article promoting carbs
sponsored by some kind of carbs producer
I I have nothing to comment so next next
paragraph is titled
our body needs carbs so we already know
that our body produces carbs so do we
need carbs and you know I’ll just put it
to you like this um if you build a house
and then you put solar panels on the
roof and you put enough solar panels to
be able to feed your house and you know
your batteries and you have enough
batteries that you can feed your house
and then store enough energy to last you
a week do you need a hookup to hydro hmm
no right like if I can make it myself
I don’t need hydro to give it to me
right if I can make
hurts myself I don’t need to eat carbs
from outside right but could I decide to
have a hook up to hydro and use hydro
even though I have solar panels in the
room
I can also decide to do that right would
it be smart would it be efficient for
myself to write would I be wasting money
sure right like we eat carbohydrates
because we’re told to eat carbohydrates
because we don’t know most of us don’t
know that we don’t actually need to eat
them now they also taste good I’m gonna
leave that part out right but we go back
to that first thing is it better to do
what’s convenient or is it better to do
what’s better for you I push people to
do what’s better for you I’ll tell you
right now if I had if I had a bunch of
solar panels on my roof I would not be
giving my money to Hydra okay so next
next sentence that caught my attention
however there’s no denying that
carbohydrates are essential for
sustained daily athletic performance we
know that’s not true of the tree
macronutrients carbs are the most
efficiently metabolized converted to
energy and the only macro that can be
really utilized for energy to supply the
fast-twitch muscles used during period
of intensity exercise workouts so first
of all so yeah
carbohydrates are always used first
because having them floating around in
your system is dangerous at the same
time if I allow myself to eat
carbohydrates my body is in a position
where it’s looking to utilize
carbohydrates so then it seems as if
they’re the more efficient way to go
because my body looks to use them first
does that actually mean that that’s the
best thing for me to be doing again if I
have a hookup to my house from hydro and
I’ve got solar energy coming from the
sky into batteries using my batteries
means I’m depleting my energy for the
evening right so I have to wait all the
way till tomorrow before I can replenish
those batteries I could see that there
might be some people who might be scared
of that and decide to use electricity so
spend money
deplete their batteries cuz what happens
if it’s cloudy tomorrow but will it be
cloudy for a week right I said I had
enough for a week will it be cloudy for
a week not likely right we have the
ability to produce carbohydrates we have
the ability to produce enough
carbohydrates to fuel our body period as
long as you have fat on your body and as
long as you have your body structure you
have enough on you to produce
carbohydrates and I will tell you that
your body is not so stupid because I
know that’s probably coming next your
body’s not so stupid to burn heart
muscle rather than take a little bit of
excess fat or skin muscle that skin that
you might have laying around your body
goes for the protein on you that’s
useless first your body is gonna take
dying cells your body is gonna take
cancerous cells your body’s gonna take
the stuff that shouldn’t be there point
in fact when we’re constantly eating
carbohydrates we don’t have the time our
body’s not able to metabolize so do our
tofu G and clean up those cells so you
know how much you have on you that
probably could be converted into sugar a
lot yeah so he’s planning the glycogen
store is not the issue replenishing your
glycogen stores is not an issue because
your body will keep you in a position
those fast twitch muscles are going to
be replenished because your body is
still thinking that we live on the
Savannah and a lion can be coming for us
at any point in time it’s gonna keep
them topped up because if I need to run
I need to run and if you go and exercise
in the gym and deplete them your body’s
gonna go to work to replenish them
whether you do keto well whether you do
standard American diet you’re still
gonna get replenished and what would you
say to somebody that would say that
would tell you that carbs are necessary
for a proper and speedy recovery
what about the recovery part after the
workout do you have more growth hormone
when you are working out in a fasted
State
so right away they don’t know what
they’re talking about growth hormone is
is what’s gonna help you to do your
recovery and it doesn’t happen because
you’ve eaten carbs hmm so I would say no
that’s what I would say that okay
researchers cited a study which found
carbs deprived at least to experience
impaired cognitive performance and mood
perceptions of fatigue and an inability
and an ill nobility to focus of course
and I’m gonna say yes to that because
I’m gonna guarantee that those Kardos
carb deprived athletes were athletes who
were regular people regular athletes who
then they took their carbs away and said
go perform they didn’t use I’m 99.99999%
sure that they didn’t use keto adapted
athletes no all right so again you know
it’s like if you’re trying to prove
something you’re gonna be able to skew
the evidence to prove something but the
thing that they need to think about and
just to give you the example because if
you want you can go check out Kido
Savage has a video where I think he gave
himself like a month maybe two months to
prepare himself for our marathon and he
ran a marathon and yes by the end of the
marathon were his feet killing him
because he’s not a runner but did he get
through the entire marathon not having
carb loaded the day before and not
having had her and I didn’t never did
another handful he’d never done a
marathon before but on top of that he
didn’t have a loss of clarity he was
fully aware as he were hurting him okay
also participate in extended physical
challenges need to explain it with carbs
as our buddy
as our bodies require more carbs as they
become dehydrated when you are a car
burning person you automatically have
water retention because carbohydrates
hold water so when you are exercising
and you sweat out the the water of
course your body is desperately looking
for water right it’s normal that it
would be doing that does that mean that
like I’m not really sure what the point
is for that
like it it’s like we need carbs because
we like this is really it’s actually the
opposite is that you were not eating so
many carbs when you sweat you wouldn’t
become dehydrated I mean yes and no if
you sweat profusely for hours and hours
any person will become dehydrated but if
you just need to drink but you just need
to drink you don’t need carb exactly you
don’t need to replenish carbs because
again your body can make them I’ll take
this article a step further when you’re
fat adapted the carbs that you do ingest
and the carbs that you do produce are
preferentially sent to the parts of your
body that need carbs so rather than
having carbs being stored away in your
liver and your pancreas and in places
that is gonna harm you the parts of your
body that will actually use them are
given them and then your glycogen stores
are filled up right it’s efficient right
you know it’s so hard to help people to
understand that it’s kind of like if I
go to the store and I buy groceries and
I bring them home and I so I buy enough
groceries to last me for the week and I
put them in the fridge and I put a bit
in the freezer then next week when it’s
time to buy groceries I bought for one
week when I go to the store and buy
again for one week when I come home I
will be able to put them in the fridge
and put them in the freezer but if I go
to the groceries and buy enough
groceries to last a month even though I
only have space in my fridge and freezer
for a week guess what happens I’m gonna
get home and I’m gonna try to put these
things away and now I’m gonna have
groceries in the fridge and groceries in
the freezer and groceries on the counter
and groceries on this on the table and
then next week when I go and buy another
month’s worth of groceries but I don’t
have space for it I’m gonna have
groceries on the counter and groceries
on the floor and groceries and guess
what’s gonna happen to my groceries
they’re gonna spoil and disgust my house
because I keep over buying groceries
rather than just buy enough that I need
your body is smart enough so if you
don’t ingest too many carbs it will get
what it needs put it where it needs to
be
and say yay but if you over ingest carbs
it puts it in where it needs to be and
then it puts it in your liver and it
puts it in your pancreas it tucks it
under your skin and it tucks it in all
these places that it shouldn’t be and
eventually you get I problems cuz it’s
putting it is putting it in places where
it’s not supposed to be all of this is
happening why because you have too much
sugar and it’s shoving it places that it
should it doesn’t deserve to be we need
to understand our body creates
carbohydrates we don’t need to eat them
and if you’re gonna eat them eat 20
grams of carbs or less because that’s
what your body can manage to put away
safely in regards a to we’re going to
strength athlete those who emphasize
protein proteins often consumed this
macro in place of carbs leading to an
unnecessary sir pool of protein and a
significant carb deficiency leaving them
eirick leaving them to be weaker not
stronger but like what happened when i
already brought proteins so i feel like
i don’t even understand what they’re
talking about there because first of all
if i over so if I overeat protein what
that means is I’ve eaten more protein
than my body needs what’s my body gonna
do with it
it’s gonna turn it into fat and it’s
gonna turn it into thanks it’ll put it
away and he’s gonna turn into carbs and
use so most carbs and say I turn it into
fat and put it away is it is it like
toxic to overeat protein no is it
difficult to overbeat to eat protein
kinda like if you’re eating a real
protein so this is where I come back to
are they talking about people they are
doing shakes and all this other stuff
that’s easy to overeat and again it’s
gonna be turned into some of it we turn
to the car so I’m gonna be put away as
fat like I think it’s just a normal that
your body’s gonna do something with it
that’s part one but the other thing is
that they’re saying basically remind me
what was the last bit of that oh yeah
it’s just like leaving them weaker not
stronger yes why would that leave me
weaker so I mean if you’re talking about
the fact that I’m any weaker cuz I’m me
fatter
okay yeah I could go there with you but
am I gonna be weaker because I ate you
don’t have
to finish here oh my goodness out what
is supposed to be yes I’m sorry okay
that’s the key that’s kind of part of
the interesting thing is that it takes a
lot more energy to turn protein into
carbs than it does to turn fat and and
and and well I mean you’re gonna need a
little bit anyways it takes that it
takes to turn fat into carbs so chances
are even if I overate my protein my
body’s gonna do is probably gonna put
that away and then pull some fat from
storage and make some carbs so why would
I be weaker hmm like it’s not a really a
logical thing that they’re saying that
and you you said they didn’t have any
citations and make us understand where
they getting that information from so I
I think sometimes you read articles like
this first of all it’s coming from a
company that sells carbs so you know you
have to be very cautious about like the
validity of the things that they’re
throwing out there as reasons just
knowing how the body works that last one
doesn’t make a lot of sense
because if I overeat proteins is gonna
get put away is that gonna make me
weaker like I said maybe it cuz I’m
fatter but beyond that is it gonna make
me weaker no I still ate right I’m still
gonna have energy from the food that I
ate if I still had protein so if I’m if
there was the possibility to build
muscle because I did go to the gym I’m
still gonna build the muscle so I even
that last point there trying to say that
because you’re doing keto you’re more
likely to focus on protein which is
wrong by the way this is another example
of where they don’t understand what the
ketogenic diet is about the kids you
know diet is not about eating more
protein instead of getting your
carbohydrates down to 20 grams or less
period that’s what it’s about that’s
what gets you into ketosis you should be
eating especially if you’re an athlete
you should be eating the amount of meat
that you need to feel the lean the lean
muscle that you have on your body which
is probably gonna be much more than me
because I don’t have much lean muscle on
my body right I’m not a big strong like
I’m not a crystal right so but that like
you need to understand how what you’re
doing
you need to understand what you’re doing
right so I feel like my goal here is to
really help you to see that this isn’t
the last ditch attempt to scare you that
if you overeat protein somehow you’re
gonna damage yourself you’re not gonna
damage yourself would I suggest
overeating protein no because it will
get turned into fat and your goal is to
be healthier if your goal is to be fit
overeating protein isn’t gonna help you
you should eat the amount that your body
requires yeah with just another example
of like you don’t know where we gave you
where they got their information but
like the sentence go exactly like that
low-carb athletes tend to seek out
animal-based sources of fat and protein
that’s right relying on foods like milk
and whey protein to power to power their
pre and post-workout meals milk like no
super high in sugar like no no low carb
actually would you go with me to feel
they’re their pre and post-workout so I
was when I read that I was like okay
seriously like this is this is crazy
okay so in the the income in conclusion
the orders of this analysis concluded
that whole natural foods are the best
choice for athletes especially that
whole and natural pertain to fruit
vegetable and grain sources and I don’t
even know any there’s not even like no
meat like in that natural like a source
is so because there’s nothing that you
are we and and the last sentence is
because there’s nothing natural about
humans drink drinking cow’s milk so what
that has to do with being hero or being
like nothing to do with it was just like
you know but I’m just saying like
they’re saying there’s nothing natural
about humans drinking cow’s milk but
what does that have to do being low-carb
they’re talking about they’re talking
about they’re basically bashing against
like athletes that that they define as
low-carb drinking milk and there but
that a post-workout them but it’s not
even like the keys but that’s exactly
it’s like they’re they’re they’re
talking about low-carb without
understanding what low-carb is and
making the assumption that you’re doing
carve you must be drinking milk but milk
is not a low carb food so clearly they
don’t know what they’re talking about so
be very careful you know sometimes
you’re reading an article and things
might look like there might be some
validity but then you see a few
sentences and you realize while these
people don’t know they’re talking about
and that’s an interesting like final
statement that low carb person would be
drinking milk yeah it’s a perfect
example of guru poor people bashing on
something to promote their own interest
in the having like general health and I
think that’s that’s hard right because
the truth is if I’m writing this article
and all I’m doing is searching for ways
to try to say that Keitel can’t be good
then what I’m really saying is for all
you people out there where keto has
helped you to regulate your metabolic
issues helped you to lose weight helped
you to resume living a healthy active
lifestyle for all you people that might
not have started yet but be it might be
helped by keto I’m gonna trick you into
eating my product because it’s more
important to me to get your money but in
that case the product is an actual
product they like use s potatoes but it
still not good but like you know the
thing that makes me a little bit
frustrated with stuff like this is that
for example there’s not a person on the
planet that would disagree that a
chocolate bar that’s infused with
caramel and nuts and you know nougat and
right there’s not a person on the planet
that would disagree that that is not a
health food mm-hmm there is no one that
would have to come to me and say violet
this is the healthiest way for you to
get energy right because everyone would
agree would agree that’s not a health
food do people buy those things today
people buy those things and they eat
them right there’s not a purse on the
planet that could would come to me and
say oh this is this lollipop this is the
healthiest way to get energy energy
right do people buy those things yes
you don’t have to lie about the
ketogenic diet to sell a potato because
there will always be people who want
mashed potatoes there will always be
people who want baked potatoes and the
road always be people who want french
fries there’s no need to lie about a
diet to sell a product the same way that
chocolate bars candies ice cream chips
and cheesy puffy things and chemical
garbage is being fed to everybody I
can’t even say children it’s everybody
okay and people buy it
so rather than pretend that your product
is healthy sell it and the people who
want to buy it will buy it and the
people who don’t want to buy it won’t
buy it very interesting idea could it be
that the potato or cereal industry is
kind of scared about like versus like a
candy maker they’re not scare because
then they’re like you said they know
they do they’ll sell their stuff because
people are always gonna have like chips
and grab even chips like potato chips
but but yeah maybe like cereal and
potato industry the higher carb even if
it’s whole food like potatoes no food
but like can can you be just scared but
I understand that and I do believe that
they’re scared that’s not the point the
point is rather than you know back when
we figured out that cigarettes cause
cancer the companies the tobacco
companies were so afraid that people
would stop buying cigarettes that they
fought and fought and fought to try to
prove that no we’re wrong that that
right now fast forward how many years do
we know the cigarettes cause cancer and
do people still buy cigarettes are there
new people learning smoke today and so
I’m sorry I do not agree with the stance
that I have to trick people into
believing that a diet is bad for you in
order to sell a product sell the product
there will always be somebody who’s
willing to
eat what you’re selling because in this
moment they’re not scared about their
health the same way that there are young
people today starting to smoke because
in this moment they’re not worried about
their health now will they be worried
about a twenty thirty years from now
sure will they be struggling you got
away from cigarettes at that point sure
our cigarettes still sold today yes they
are right does the government know that
cigarettes are horrible for us yes they
do have they banned cigarettes no they
happen look as a matter of fact not only
have they not ban cigarettes they’re
allowing in marijuana hmm you will
always have the opportunity to to poison
yourself with whatever you want to
poison yourself with and if you choose
to slowly poison yourself with carbs you
will have the opportunity they don’t
have to lie about the ketogenic diet to
allow that to happen yeah I think this
is a good place to stop I want to thank
