Still Fat On Keto | What Nobody Told You

In this video, we’re going to discuss what
to do when you’re still fat after following
the ketogenic diet.

Now in this video, we have an interesting
topic that is still fat on keto. There’s a
couple of ways this happens. So, first of
all, some people start the ketogenic diet
and they’re just not hitting those weight
loss goals right off the bat. So, you know
they want to give up. And now there’s other
people who have tried the ketogenic diet and
they quit altogether because they have seen
so many people having amazing weight loss
transformations and it didn’t happen for them,
or they just didn’t get down to their target
weight. Now, the truth is that the ketogenic
diet works really well for this and there’s
probably just a few things that you need to
tweak in order to get you amazing results
like the ones you’re looking for.
So, in this video, what I’ll do is teach you
these amazing tweaks that you need to make
in order to improve your fat loss goals well
on the ketogenic diet and make the ketogenic
diet work for you. Now first topic on our
list is going to be metabolic hormones. And
I think that this is so important and I don’t
think enough people talk about it. And the
reason it’s important is because when people
are starting to ketogenic diet, they are not
all starting on an equal playing field right
now. A lot of people who are doing the ketogenic
diet, they are simply doing it because first
of all, I want to lose weight, but also they
want to improve their overall health. So,
they have some problems going on. They likely
already have metabolic instability. So, when
they approach the ketogenic diet, these issues
are already occurring.
Now, here’s the thing. A healthy individual
who starts the ketogenic diet is likely going
to see good results fast because their metabolic
hormones are on point. Now, someone who is
more unhealthy and has more metabolic hormone
dysregulation going on within their body,
they have insulin resistance, they have leptin
resistance. The hormones just aren’t working
like they normally would, then they’re not
going to see results as fast. So, what the
point I’m making here is that the ketogenic
diet is going to downregulate inflammation.
It’s going to make these hormones more sensitive.
But the truth is that most people don’t talk
about is that some people will get results
much faster than others. But the key is, is
if you’re one of those people that has that
metabolic instability going on, you simply
just need to persist through and keep pushing
because the results will come as your body
starts to heal. So, don’t give up because
you have metabolic hormones and don’t base
your success on other people’s success because
we don’t approach the ketogenic diet on equal
playing fields.
Now next here is carbohydrates. Now, when
we look at carbohydrates, this is an important
topic because as a rule of thumb, it’s typically
50 grams of carbohydrates or less on the ketogenic
diet, but some people need to bring it down
even further than that. Some people need to
bring it to 30 grams or less, or even 20 grams
or less. Now, if you’re not losing fat on
the ketogenic diet, bring it down to 20 grams
or less and make sure that you’re getting
most of your carbohydrates from your vegetables.
Next here on our list is going to be fat intake.
Now, this is important too because when we
first approached the ketogenic diet, we want
to push the fats in our body simply, we are
trying to change our body’s fuel system.
We want to change your body from burning sugar
for energy to burning fat for energy. So,
we want to push the fats in the beginning
in order to really push that transformation.
However, what happens is once we actually
become keto adapted and we’re in the state
of ketosis, what we want to do is scale back
on those fats because if we just keep pushing
those fats all the way through, our body will
burn that dietary fat that we’re consuming
but not the fat on our body that we’re trying
to lose. And so, once you’re in the state
of ketosis, make sure that you’re pulling
back on those fats in order to start burning
the fat on your body. And that is very important
for fat loss results.
Next here is going to be exercise. Now a lot
of people approach the ketogenic diet because
they don’t like exercising. They want to lose
weight, but they do not want to do it by going
to the gym and just burning out miles of running
and things like that. and nor should you.
But the thing is, is when you’re following
the ketogenic diet, it’s still very important
to exercise. Now you don’t have to go and
do heavyweight training, you don’t have to
go and do heavy, long distance running. But
what you need to do is you need to just get
out and start moving. So as little as a 30
minute walk a day has drastic effects on the
body and really can have a huge impact on
improving your overall state of wellbeing.
So, 30-minute brisk walk a day, but even picking
up some very lightweights. Once again, you
don’t have to go pick up the heavyweights
and you know, just be grinding it out in the
gym. You can pick up some lightweights and
you can do some different exercises in order
to help build a little bit of muscle, tone
things up. But when you start moving, when
you start getting yourself physically active,
you’re going to start seeing that fat fall
off your body even faster. So as little as
a 30-minute brisk walk a day is very important,
not only for your cardiovascular system, but
also your weight loss goals when doing the
ketogenic diet.
Now when we look at keto and losing weight
and making sure that we’re hitting our fat
loss goals, we want to make sure that we’re
using fasting as our friend. But the question
becomes how to fast. Now, most people will
start the ketogenic diet and they won’t do
fasting at all. Now on as a rule of thumb,
16 and 8 works very well when doing the ketogenic
diet, but some people may even need more than
that. So if you’re not doing any fasting at
all and you want to improve your keto transformation,
then be sure to add in 16 and 8. Now, if you’re
already doing 16 and 8 and you want to even
further those goals, or maybe you’re just
kind of stuck and you just can’t lose any
more fat, then what you want to do is push
that fasting a little further. Go to 18 hours,
go to one meal a day, and then you’re going
to start seeing that fat loss transformation
speed up into full gear.
Now when it comes to fasting, if you want
to learn more about that, go ahead and click
on a video that I did right up here. I did
a complete guide on one meal a day, on intermittent
fasting. It’s going to teach you everything
you need to know. Check that out.
Now, the last thing I want to talk about here
is cortisol. Now Cortisol is hormone that
is increased in our body through stress. This
can be any kind of stress, it can be emotional
stress. This can also be physical stress.
Now, one of the things that happens is that
some people, they start following the ketogenic
diet and it’s kind of a stressful, transformative
diet for them to follow. They start following
and they’re like what foods do I eat? There’s
a lot of stress that can be involved with
that. How much do I eat? Now the other thing
that happens is some people are pushing exercise
really hard and so they’re doing long distance
running, just grinding it out with the weights.
When you are putting too much stress on your
body in any form of stress, physical stress,
mental stress, emotional stress, then what’s
going to happen is you’re going to raise cortisol
in the body. When you raise cortisol in the
body, not only does it block fat burning,
but it actually will push the accumulation
of fat on your body. So, it’ll actually push
fat storing. So, we want to make sure that
we’re decreasing stress in our body in order
to decrease cortisol in order to actually
lose fat. So, keep that in mind and try not
to stress out over the small things and don’t
overdo it physically and don’t overdo yourself
mentally either because all that stress is
going to stop you from achieving your goals.
So, these are the different tips that you
need to know when it comes to really skyrocketing
your fat loss goals on the ketogenic diet
or on the low carb diet cause most people
are messing this up right here and this can
really help them reach their goals that they’re
looking to get to.
