or we go live. And, be sure to watch it until
the end because I’ve got a special bonus
ready to go for you guys to help with
maybe the most important part of this
whole process – the motivation, the
inspiration. Unless you live under a rock,
you’ve probably heard about keto diets,
and you’ve probably wondered, ‘hey, the
incredible results that these guys
promise ,that these guys suggest, is that
true? Do keto diets even work? Should I go
keto?? Is my keto diet going to lead to accelerated fat loss? I’ve been in the
fitness world, I’ve been in the fitness
industry for nearly 20 years now, man, and
I’ve just about seen it all. So I’m gonna
break things down and simplify them to
help you guys make the best choice. So
let’s dive right in, and let’s see if any
of that’s true. First Pro – when you switch
over to eating mostly protein and fats,
or I guess it would be mostly fats and
some protein, you will find that your
hunger levels will decrease. And this
makes a lot of sense because you won’t
have any glucose, or as much glucose, in
your system. So you won’t be subject to
those blood sugar spikes. And this is a
good thing when you are dieting because
dieting is already hard enough, and so
often times, by not being so hungry, you
will end up eating fewer calories. I can
testify to this even not being in keto
per se, whenever I’m training for a show,
and I’m carb cycling, when I’m on those
low days, and I’m on those really the
light calorie days,
I actually find that after a while they
get pretty easy. They get pretty easy
because my body just kind of gets used
to it, so this is a big, big pro. And that
actually leads right into the Second Pro.
If you actually find yourself where your
diet is pretty inconsistent, you know, you
struggle to regulate insulin, you
struggle with glucose control, then going
keto can really serve as a nice boost to
kind of right the ship, if you will. To
kind of bring your system back to where
it needs to be – to where it should
be. Now if you’re confused about, you know,
insulin sensitivity and insulin
resistance, then definitely consider
subscribing to the channel because I’ve
got a nice little video series that I’m
working on with those two guys
specifically, so stay tuned. But if you
struggle with these things right now,
similar to how you won’t have a lot of
glucose floating around in your system,
this could kind of help right the ship
and kind of help your body get back on
track. Pro Number Three, well as we learned
in that ketogenic diet basics video,
you’re gonna be eating a whole lot of
fat, and a lot of people don’t eat enough
fat to begin with. So this is gonna
change that problem, and then some. This
is going to fix that problem very, very
quickly because you are gonna have
avocados coming out of your ears you will
have coconut oil oozing from your pores.
Pro Number Four, I’m not willing to say
that, you know, we’re talking sharper
cognitive abilities across the board. I
don’t know if I’m willing to jump on
that wagon, just yet. But there is some
pretty interesting research, some pretty
cool studies have been done to show that
if we’re talking about neuro
degenerative things like MS, like
Alzheimer’s, like Parkinson’s, like even
brain trauma, then a keto diet could be
really beneficial. And so in one of those
special circumstances, going keto could
actually help quite a bit.
Aight so that brings us to the cons.
Con Number One, you’re gonna have to
endure a pretty restrictive food list,
man. Anything with carbohydrates, it’s
pretty much gonna be out. That means no
dairy, no fruit, no starchy vegetables, no
grains, and definitely
no processed foods. That means – no yogurt, maybe
a little bit of cheese, maybe an apple
once in a while, but definitely no bread.
If you need to pause for a second, and
you need to grab a tissue cuz your bread
intake is just went down to zero, by all
means. Con Number Two, get ready, baby
because the ‘keto flu’ is coming your way.
The ‘keto flu’ is basically when your body switches over from burning glucose
to burning fat as fuel, it is not gonna
be happy with you, man. You are going to
feel like straight-up garbage. What do I
mean by that? Well the symptoms of the
keto flu are headaches, fatigue, sugar
cravings, irritability, trouble sleeping,
nausea – this thing is going to feel
pretty bad, and typically, this guy lasts
maybe three to five days. Con Number
Three, Con Number Three this is based
off of my own two decades of being a
competitive bodybuilder, two decades of
kind of turning my life around from
being an out-of-shape, overweight kid, to
hitting the competitive stage, and it’s
this. Keto is just not a sustainable
solution for ninety nine percent of the
public, if not more than that. When you
think about your life, when you think
about just regular functions. When you
think about just hanging out with
friends, hanging out with family members,
this is not something that’s probably
going to be sustainable for you in the
long run. Sure can you do it for three
months? Can you do it for six months? Can
you even do it for a year? I think so. But
can you do this for the rest of your
life? Can you actually go through life
with like weddings, and birthday parties,
and this, and that, and really eat pretty
much zero carbohydrate? I don’t think it
makes a lot of sense. I don’t think it
makes a lot of sense as a long-term,
sustainability option, and I think this
is where a lot of people go wrong when
it comes to fitness, when it comes to
training and nutrition. They don’t think
about the long-term. They don’t think
about the
sustainability of what they’re doing. They
think, ‘man, I’m just gonna do this for
three months, or four months, or six
months. I’m gonna buckle down. I’m gonna
get in shape, and then I’ll figure it out.
Don’t do that, man. Figure out the long-
term now. Figure out forever right now
because this is what we have a problem
with in today’s society. It’s not
losing weight. It’s keeping weight off. So
where do we stand? For Pros up against
Three Cons – it looks like this thing is
a go. It looks like we’ve got the green
light to go keto. Well not so fast, man.
Not so fast because we’ve gone through
the good, we’ve gone through the bad, but
I’ve saved the ugly for the very end
because I know this is what you guys
want. This is what you guys want to know.
What about keto for fat loss? Does keto
lead to accelerated fat loss? No, not
according to the data. Let me repeat that
– no difference in fat loss, What’s
interesting is there are a lot of
studies out there about keto that show
these impressive results, that show this
incredible progress, when people have
gone keto. But very few of them, in fact,
none of them, except for one, equated for
calories and protein. Well some
researchers out in Arizona at Arizona
State University did just that. They
looked at keto, but they equated for
calories and protein, and they found no
difference in fat loss. So given the
sustainability problem, and the lack of a
very clear fat loss advantage, I’m not
really on board with keto, man, if I’m
just being real with you guys. I don’t
think it’s the best option for most
people. But I can’t speak for you. I mean
maybe you’re the exception, maybe you’re
the outlier.
Maybe keto makes a lot of sense for your
lifestyle, and maybe you just love bacon.
Maybe you just love olive oil, right.
Maybe you just, you know, you wake up in
the middle of the night just craving avocados.
If that’s the case, then keto might make
a lot of sense for you, right. Don’t let
me tell you differently. But I just think
that if you’re exploring different
nutritional
strategies, keto might not be the best
option. So there you go. There is a
breakdown of the pros and cons in a
practical sense of the keto diet to help
you decide if keto makes sense for you.
But maybe it’s not the nutritional
strategy that is hanging you up. Maybe
you’re having a hard time getting
motivated or staying motivated. Well if
that’s the case, then download The
