Pruvit Weight Loss Review 1 year of Keto OS – Ketogenic Diet & Ketosis
Hi everyone, this is Anthony Flatt and welcome
to my Pruvit update video.
This is my update after having taken Keto
OS for 1 year.
My first video, Keto OS video was November
1st of last year.
So today is November 1st and it’s the anniversary
of that first video, so I want to make an
update video and give you guys an idea of
where I’m at today.
So, first, you’ll notice I’m going to
be reading my notes.
If you’ve watched any of my videos, you
know that I do keep my notes and read my notes,
I’m not a professional speaker or TV personality
So I want to make sure that I touch on the
points that I’ve written down.
Also, you’ll notice that if you’ve watched
any of my videos, we’re not in my office
today, we’re actually in a little studio
that I built in my house, a little classroom,
I’m going to be doing some training.
I’ve already created some training programs
for small businesses and I’m going to be
doing some other training.
Look at AnthonyFlatt.com and you can check
Send me an email and I’ll give you my email
address at the end and I’ll let you take
some of those courses and stuff for free,
but that’s why we’re here.
This is my little training studio and it looks
a little different than my office, we’ll
do some more videos later in my office, but
my office is a mess at the moment.
So anyways, let’s start off with the usual
I’m not a doctor, I don’t play a doctor
on TV, before you do anything I say or anybody
else says, check it out for yourself.
Make sure you consult with your doctor before
you start any kind of health and wellness,
fitness, diet plan, any programs like that.
So really take anything and everything I say
and anything and everything else you see on
the internet or you hear from friends or whatever
and really do your own research.
I’ve done a lot of research and I’ve really
learned why a lot of these things are, and
where the misnomers are and where people kind
of get things a little bit wrong, they hear
one part of something and they go down a path
of thinking that they’re now an expert at
So really research what I’m talking about
and anything else you hear from anybody on
your health and your fitness.
Go to your doctor and make sure they clear
anything that you do, make sure you’re good
Okay, back to our regularly scheduled programing,
they don’t even say that anymore.
I know they used to say that when I watched
Saturday morning cartoons on the TV on that
black and white box with the antenna on it.
Younger kids, you have no idea what I’m
Cartoons used to only be on in the morning.
We had 4 channels 3, 6, 7 and 42.
For those of you that know what those channels
are and where they’re at, you know where
For fun, if you get a chance, type down in
the box and tell me where you think I’m
from based on those channels.
But anyways, let’s get back on track here.
So, it’s been a year, I’ve lost over 50
I’ve kept it off.
So, that’s great, but my goal was to lose
100 in 12 months, lose 100 pounds in a year,
and I didn’t get there.
And, you know, what happened?
Well lots of things, but basically it boils
down to life happened and Antony happened.
You know, I was doing really well from November
to about May and then in May my wife and I
went on a 16-day Alaskan 20th anniversary
wedding vacation and I kind of blew it.
The first five days we were in Fairbanks and
then Denali and I did pretty good there, but
then for the next seven days we were on a
cruise, an Alaskan cruise, and you guys know
what’s on a cruise ship, right?
Food, food, food, food, food, food.
If you didn’t get that, let me translate
it for you, carbs, crabs, carbs right?
And I didn’t do so well and I didn’t take
me Keto OS twice a day like I had been taking
it and I didn’t stick to eating low-carb,
high-fat, I ate what was there and most all
of it was carbs and it was delicious.
But I gained about 10 to 12 pounds in that
So, what happened?
I came back, I got back on taking my Keto
OS twice a day, got back to eating low-carb,
Basically, I eat meat and vegetables, and
salads, and I don’t eat breads and I don’t
eat breaded things and I don’t eat things
with sugar in them or very, very little sugar
if possible and I lost that 10 to 12 pounds
within two weeks, a couple weeks.
So, that was great, back on track again ready
to roll, well, not really.
Basically, I haven’t really lost any more
weight since then, since about the June timeframe.
Now, the good news is I haven’t gained any
weight, but I haven’t lost any weight.
So, the natural question is going to be, okay
Anthony, what happened?
Why did it stop working?
Well it didn’t stop working, it’s all
about what I did or what I did not do.
And if you noticed, I said what I did.
I really believe it’s important to take
responsibility for your own actions, right?
And to be honest with yourself, to really
look at things and not try to find excuses
or ways to blame your situation or life, or
people, or whatever.
This is you.
I mean, I got fat by the things that I ate,
I lost 50 pounds by the things that I did
and with lots of help from other people and
now I have not lost any weight in the last
Now, I changed jobs, we’ve had life, things
going on, I could make all kind of excuses
for why that happened, but that’s the fact.
I got very comfortable losing that 2.2 pounds
a week average that I had been averaging for
the first 6-7 months and I started to cheat
here and there.
And when I cheated, it didn’t seem to change
things, and so I ended up eating more and
not following through and not writing down
what I’m eating, not watching what I’m
eating as much and that’s a slippery slope,
because once you start, then it makes it easy
to have that next thing and the next thing
and then you have one bad day of eating and
then you have a couple bad days and then a
Now, I’ve been taking Keto OS all along,
but I’ll be honest and say some days I took
two, some days I took one, some days maybe
I even forgot.
I don’t know if I’ve ever forgotten completely,
but maybe I have, but not been consistent
I just wasn’t into my habit of doing the
things that I have been doing.
So, one of the big thigs with the cheating
was as I stopped taking the Keto OS, it became
harder to resist the carbs and the sugars
Now, I didn’t go full boar into what I had
before, you know, I wasn’t eating a lot
of snack foods, I wasn’t eating a lot of
fast food, but I was eating things that were
breaded, I was eating things that I knew had
preservatives and sweeteners and came out
of a box and what not.
Not every day, I tried to get in a good protein,
I tried to get in a salad, but there was a
lot of the bad stuff in there.
And I could say boohoo, have a little pity
party, I can’t figure it out, it’s not
working, boohoo, whatever.
You’re going to have to do it, so I just
had to figure out, okay, well, what’s going
Why did I stop losing weight?
And really I just kind of came back to, what
are the facts?
So, let’s look at some of the facts.
Fact: When I took Keto OS twice a day, I usually
Now, remember, Keto OS is not a diet program.
I’m not here to prescribe that it’s a
diet program, it is therapeutic ketones and
having therapeutic ketones in your system,
which is something you already have in your
system, you just don’t have a lot of them,
but having more therapeutic ketones in your
system help you metabolize fat.
Simple like that, it helps you get into ketosis,
helps get you into the fat burning mode.
Some people can get into ketosis themselves
very easily, some people can’t get into
ketosis at all.
I can tell you that if I don’t drink me
Keto OS and eat just about anything with a
reasonable amount of carbs, 10-20 grams of
carbs, it’s going to knock me out of ketosis.
So, the Keto OS is my kind of insurance policy,
It keeps the therapeutic ketones in and it
keeps me somewhat insulated from falling out
of ketosis so that I can stay in the fat burning
So, what else?
Fact: When I took it regularly, when I took
Keto OS regularly, I ate better, I felt better
and I ate less.
And again, it’s having therapeutic ketones
in your body, it makes you not have those
cravings or at least it makes me not have
the carb cravings or the sugar cravings and
the crazy cravings at night.
When I don’t, when I don’t have a Keto
OS in the afternoon or in the late evening,
I notice that around 8:30 and 9:00 o’clock,
and I try to go to bed about 8:30-9:00, so
that’s maybe why also I notice it that I
start getting hungry.
Usually I try to drink water or try to drink
a Keto OS at that point, but I usually don’t
want to get to that point.
I want to make sure that I’m taking my Keto
OS regularly and I haven’t been.
I also know that I wasn’t getting any exercise.
I had a goal of getting 10,000 steps a day
in, I haven’t been doing that, I haven’t
been going to the gym and I haven’t been
So, that’s it.
And I know that when I took my Keto OS twice
a day, that I actually had more energy and
I actually felt like working out and felt
like waking more often.
When I don’t take it twice a day, especially
when I take on in the morning, I’m pretty
good about taking one in the morning, it’s
usually the afternoon and the evening, that
time that I kind of space off and get busy
and forget about it, but that’s the time
that I notice when I’m really getting tired
and I’m not as motivated to do things.
Fact: When I did these things, I lost weight
and when I didn’t do them, I didn’t lose
Now, I didn’t gain a lot of weight, because
I was still taking a Keto OS at least once
a day and I was still eating more or less
a low-carb, high-fat diet, but I wasn’t
getting in enough fats I’m sure.
I probably was getting in enough protein or
maybe even too much protein, but I’m sure
my carbs were up, and I say I’m sure because
I’m not really sure because I didn’t track
I didn’t put it into my fitness pal and
track what I was eating, so that was another
one of the issues.
So, if I know all the facts, what do I do?
I just go back and change the things that
I’m not doing and start doing those things.
You have to be honest with yourself, you can’t
sit and blame everybody else for why you had
fast food tree times today.
I haven’t, I haven’t had anything to eat
today, this is about 9:30 and I’m probably
not going to eat until noon, that’s my goal
everyday pretty much is 11-12 o’clock, after
11 and I’ll tell you in a minute why.
But I know what I need to do, so I just need
to do it, right?
Well, now instead of having a little pity
party and complaining, I’m going to go and
start what I call phase two, and I’m going
to start that today.
And basically, phase two is just doing the
things that I know I need to do, making a
habit out of them.
So, here’s my daily habit, right?
Drink Keto OS three times a day.
Once between 6 and 9, once between noon and
3, and once between 6 and 9.
Now, I’m saying 3 times a day because I
know me, I know what happened this last year
and I know that in the afternoons I get busy
or in the evenings I get busy.
I’m going to be coaching wrestling two days
a week again, so I’m going to be, I’m
not going to be sitting at home at those times,
I’m going to be getting back from practice.
So, I know things are going to happen.
So, if I focus on drinking it 3 times a day,
chances are that I’ll average at least 2
times a day right.
So I’m just upping my ability to average.
So check to see how your body takes therapeutic
I have not had any issues with taking Keto
OS 3 times a day, I know lots of people that
do, but that’s an individual thing.
I mean, test it out for yourself and make
sure that you’re okay with it.
Secondly, walk, run or crawl 60 minutes a
day or 10,000 steps, whichever one comes first.
Walk, run or crawl.
If I don’t feel like going for a run or
getting on the elliptical, at least walk,
walk and read a book, walk and read a magazine,
So, I’m committing myself to walk, run or
crawl 60 minutes a day or 10,000 steps, whichever
Stay on the 7/11 diet.
Have you ever heard of the 7/11 diet?
It’s something that I invented, I made a
video about it a couple months ago, but basically
it’s just a play on words.
The 7/11 diet basically is don’t eat before
11 AM and don’t eat after 7 PM.
It’s basically intermittent fasting, it
gives your body, so if you eat at 7pm, it’s
going to take your body a couple hours to
digest whatever you’ve eaten so that’s
So, about the time you’re going to sleep,
for me hopefully I am asleep, your body is
going to run out of the sugar and glucose
from whatever you ate, right?
Because just about everything has some carbs
in it, right?
So, you’re going to run out of that and
it’s going to be easier for you to kick
into a fat burning state, especially if you
took a Keto OS right after your dinner, that
will be good because you’ll have those therapeutic
ketones in your system as well.
And then you’ll be in fat burning mode all
night long, and most people go into a fat
burning mode anyways because at some point
in time whatever food that they ate, the sugar
and the carbs converting to sugar are going
to burn off.
And that’s why it’s so bad eating late
at night because if you eat a bunch of sugar
late at night, then it takes you farther and
you don’t get into that fat burning, you
get into far storage.
But you get into this fat burning stage and
it takes you into the morning and when you
wake up, I don’t ever feel hungry in the
I don’t usually even start getting hungry
until sometime after 9-10 o’clock.
So, for me, not eating breakfast is good.
People say that breakfast is the most important
meal of the day and that’s for people that
are on the standard American diet or the modern
American diet, the MAD, the SAD, whatever
you want to call it, and that basically says
that you’ve got to eat every two hours to
keep sugar in your system through carbs.
So, they tell you to eat breakfast, then eat
a snack, eat lunch, then eat a snack, eat
dinner, then eat a snack.
They’re telling you to eat every two hours,
that keeps the sugar.
For guys like me that have insulin resistance
and have sugar issues, I don’t’ want any
sugar in my body.
I’ve already got enough, I’ve already
got more than enough, I’ve got sugar issues,
so I don’t want to be eating carbs and I
don’t want to be eating natural or manmade
So, anyways, 7/11 diet, don’t eat after
7:00 PM, don’t eat before 11:00 AM.
Give your body that time to repair itself
and rest, there’s reasons why fasting is
in the Bible, there’s reasons why people
There’s reasons why when you read some of
the personal development books you’ll hear
a lot of the people that are excelling in
business go through a fasting period, it’s
part of their regular regimen.
So, you know, do that.
I haven’t built up to being able to fast
for multiple days yet.
So, if I can go from 7 to 11 the next day,
that gives me, 15, 14-15 hours of fasting.
So, that’s good, give my body that time
Then, eat a good, high-fat, moderate protein,
Low-carb, high-fat diet.
If you don’t know what to eat, just Google
Keto and whatever it is you want to eat.
Keto pizza, Keto meatloaf, Keto casserole,
Keto chicken and there will be all kinds of
recipes for very good high-fat, low-carb recipes,
and that’s where I get all mine.
I usually print like three or four similar
recipes out, then I pick the best parts, the
things that I like about each recipe and then
I make my own.
And I don’t know how to cook small, so I
usually end up making pretty big batches of
things and then I use the seal a meal kid
of deal to seal up individual meals and I
put those in the freezer for myself and then
I take them also to my friends at church.
They really dig the food and the creativity,
and I make a crust-less pizza that’s really
I’ve got a couple things that I make that
are really good.
I’ve got a cauliflower casserole that’s
really good, and so they like that.
And my in-laws like it, I go over and have
lunch with them and we just, you can take
the seal a meal bags and either cut them up
in a microwave and cut them open, put them
in a boiling water and then cut them open,
or cut it open, take it out, and then warm
However you want, but it actually is really
good, it keeps that stuff pretty good.
So, anyways, I’m going on and on, so let’s
keep moving on.
So, most people say I’ve been taking Keto
OS or I’ve been on a low-carb, high-fat
diet and I just can’t lose weight.
I would suggest that maybe the reason you
can’t lose weight is because you’re eating
things or you’re getting in sugar and carbs
that you’re not aware of.
And I say that because that’s what happened
When I put things into, I used the app called
my fitness pal, it’s a free app, you can
get it from any smartphone.
If I put the things on there, it gives me
a calorie counter, but more importantly, it
gives me a macronutrients counter.
It tells me how many fats and how many sugars
and how much protein I’ve been getting.
So, I really like that app, but I got away
from using it.
So, I need to use it every day.
So, I need to use it, not before I eat, not
after I eat, but while I’m eating I need
to be plugging it in, because the food is
right there in front of me, I know exactly
what I’m eating, and I need to put it in
exactly at that point in time.
I think people who say that they can’t lose
weight often times, not everybody, not every
situation, but often times it’s because
they’re eating more than they think.
Oh, well, I just had chicken.
Well, where did you have chicken from?
Well I had a chicken sandwich from the fast
Okay, that’s not just chicken.
That’s the chicken, that’s the breading,
that’s the oil, that’s the bread, and
all of that stuff is super, super bad for
you because it’s highly refined, that’s
the biggest part.
So, if you’re going to have chicken, have
Have some chicken with the skin on broiled,
have chicken in a pan, sautéed or on the
grill or however you like it, but don’t
think that a chicken breast cooked on a grill
is anywhere near same thing as fast food.
Everybody’s going to say, well, of course
Believe me, our mind plays tricks on us and
convinces us that it’s ok to go through
the drive through because it’s just a little
bit of grease, it’s just a little bit of
No, it’s a lot of grease and a lot of carbs,
it will blow your entire day and maybe even
your entire week in ketosis by going through
fast food one time.
So, keep that in mind.
And then also I need to be testing my blood
glucose and my ketose every single day and
I’ve got away from doing that again.
And what that does, especially for people
who say I’m eating, I’m in ketosis, I’m
really eating well, I’m peeing on the little
test strips and I’m in ketosis.
You know, I have the test strips and I use
them time to time, but to be honest with you,
the blood meter is the only one I trust.
When I do the blood meter, it tells me what
my glucose levels are and then I can do the
ketone one and it will tell me if I’m in
ketosis or not.
The ketosis strips are kind of expensive,
they’re about 2-2.50 each.
So, if you do that every day, you’re talking
about a little bit of money, but the glucose
strips are cheap, they’re like 30 or 40
So, I do a glucose, I used to, I need to get
back at it, I used to do glucose every single
day and I’d do ketones maybe every day for
a while and then I’d get to doing them once
or twice a week just to kind of check and
balance and make sure.
You can really kind of tell if you’re glucose
levels are pretty high; the odds are you’re
not in ketosis.
So, if your glucose levels are low, if your
glucose levels are under 100 or right around
100, then you’re probably in ketosis.
If your glucose levels are higher than that,
then you’re probably not.
Now, that’s not a prefect rule of thumb,
if you’re heavier and you’ve got insulin
issues and if you’re really, really skinny.
I mean, there’s all kinds of variations
there, but it is a rule of thumb.
You can test your glucose and get at least
And that really helps me, I mean, every time
I’ve tested my glucose and it’s been high,
I can think back and say, what did I eat?
What did I eat?
I had a bunch of grapes and strawberries.
Let me see how much sugar is in grapes and
strawberries and you’ll find that in berries
it’s just not as much, but grapes are very
high, watermelon is very high, any kind of
melon, most melons are high.
If you’re going to have berries, try to
have blue berries and black berries and the
smaller berries with lots of antioxidants
and less sugar, less fructose, fructose is
Or you drink a glass of milk and say I didn’t
eat anything with sugar in it.
Okay, milk has lactose in it, “ose”, ose.
Fructose, lactose, glucose, that’s all sugar.
So, anyway, every time I look back at finding
the food that caused it to go up, one of my
big ones was, darn it, that popcorn!
It was popcorn, it’s light, it had real
butter on it, it had a little bit of sea salt
Yeah, popcorn’s not good for you.
So, anyhow, alright so that’s my plan, all
I’ve got to do it stick to it.
But here’s the deal, I’m going to stumble,
it’s going to happen, I’ve already done
it, I know it’s going to happen.
I’m going to work this plan and I’m going
to stick to it as much as I possibly can and
I’m going to really dedicate to it, but
when I stumble, that’s okay because I know
how to look at what I did and be real with
myself, be honest with myself, and I know
how to change it and then I know how to get
back on the plan and I know how to keep going.
So, I don’t have to have a pity party, I
don’t have to spiral down and take two or
three months or four months like I just did
to get back on a program, I should be able
to just get right back.
So, I’m recommitting myself today to phase
two to lose another 50 pounds in the next
12 months, and I’ve already done it once,
so losing another 50 pounds shouldn’t be
that big deal because I already know what
the plan is and I just need to do that.
So, I’m going to leave it with that.
