In this video, we’re going to talk about breastfeeding and some of the incredible benefits of breast milk. In fact, the future health of your child could rely on the mother’s nutrition and the quality of her breast milk.

If a mother is getting enough nutrients, the baby should gain 500-1,000 grams each month.

These are some of the many amazing benefits of breast milk:

1. Increased life span of infants – Breastfeeding reduces the risk of SIDS.

2. Increased immune function – Colostrum is an incredible immune-creating substance. The strength of your child’s immune system relies on it.

3. Decreased risk of GI infection

4. Decreased risk of allergies

5. Decreased risk of death due to diarrhea – Non-breast fed infants are 14x more likely to die of diarrhea.

6. Decreased risk of respiratory infection – Non-breast fed infants are 3x more likely to die of a respiratory infection.

7. Decreased risk of overall deadly infection – Non-breast fed infants are 2x more likely to die of infections overall.

If you are capable of breastfeeding, I hope these benefits inspire you to choose it over formula. Your child will gain so many benefits.

What a mother consumes before, during, and after pregnancy is vitally important.

Prolonged Fasting and IGF-1

How does prolonged fasting affect IGF-1? Watch this video to find out.

3:37 Is prolonged fasting harmful?
4:09 Benefits of prolonged fasting
4:42 Need a keto consultant?

In this video, we’re going to talk about prolonged fasting and IGF-1. IGF-1 stands for insulin-like growth factor 1. This is a hormone that is made in the liver. This hormone is stimulated by growth hormone, and it acts like growth hormone in the body.

Growth hormone is made by the pituitary gland—it is transported to the liver, where it triggers IGF.

IGF-1 is vital to the growth and development of tissue in the body—just like growth hormone.

If you do prolonged fasting, insulin goes down, and IGF-1 increases to immobilize fat to be used as fuel.

Interestingly, some research shows a correlation between high IGF-1 and increased risk of cancer. IGF-1 is not the sole cause of cancer—it’s only involved in cancer in the way that it helps things grow. It also inhibits apoptosis (programmed cell death), which is an important function in cancer prevention.

Fasting for 3-5 days causes a 30% decrease in IGF-1. This increases the immune system, decreases inflammation, and boosts neuroregeneration.

Fasting for longer than 5 days lowers IGF-1 by 60%, which helps reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and overall mortality.

Prolonged fasting is not harmful or dangerous if you do it correctly. In fact, it can help increase your health and improve the survival of your cells.

In this video, I want to cover the symptoms of insulin resistance. I realized I have many videos where I talk about insulin resistance, but I don’t have any videos where I go through the symptoms of insulin resistance. My guess is that at least 60-75% of the population has some form of insulin resistance. Even people that are prediabetic and diabetic also have insulin resistance.

28 insulin resistance symptoms:
1. Frequent urination at night
2. Frequent hunger (need for snacks between meals and at night)
3. Needing to nap after eating (especially after lunch)
4. Not satisfied after eating
5. Craving carbs
6. Low endurance/fatigue
7. Belly fat
8. High cholesterol, high triglycerides, low HDL and high LDL
9. High blood pressure
10. Fatty liver
11. PCOS
12. Dark folds (on the back of the neck, armpits, or groin)
13. Cysts
14. Skin tags
15. High blood glucose and high insulin
16. Inflammation and pain

Calories vs. Appetite on Keto and Intermittent Fasting

September 12, 2020

KETO RECIPES CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnAGH-jp4YXl30rir1BPrxA/

Let me clear up some confusion about calories vs. appetite on keto and intermittent fasting. 

Timestamps
0:00 Calories on keto 
0:15 The mainstream recommendation for calories 
1:25 Other factors 
1:53 Don’t eat unless you’re hungry—explained 
3:25 What to eat
3:38 Autophagy 
3:58 A few ways to know if you need more nutrients 
4:22 A big benefit of keto and intermittent fasting 
4:48 How to know if you’re doing it correctly 

There has been a lot of confusion for keto and intermittent fasting beginners concerning calories, as well as the concept of not eating unless you’re hungry. 

The mainstream recommendation for calories per day is: 
Female — 2000 
Male — 2500 

But, of course, the mainstream recommendation doesn’t take into account that you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting. When you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting, you’re switching your fuel source to your own fat calories. So, it’s not just about the dietary calories you’re consuming. It’s also about including the calories that are on your body as stored fat. 

There are other factors to consider, as well, such as:
• Age
• Metabolism
• Stress
• Activity 

In the past, I’ve said to not eat unless you’re hungry. But, I want to add a few things to clarify this. If you don’t have energy, your mood is off (you have anxiety, depression, or grouchiness), or you don’t have much strength, you may be missing fuel or nutrients. 

When you eat, it’s important to make sure you’re consuming nutrient-dense foods. After you eat, you’re going to be fasting, and you need to make sure you have enough nutrients to run your body on. 

When you’re fasting, you’re going through autophagy, which is a process where you’re body is becoming very efficient. Autophagy also slows down the need for nutrients.  

A few ways to know if you need more nutrients:
• You’re losing hair (you may need more B vitamins or trace minerals) 
• You’re losing muscle mass (you may need more amino acids) 

How to know if you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting correctly? Pay attention to you’re:
• Appetite 
• Energy
• Mood
• Strength

High Fat Diets Are Only Dangerous if…

In this video, Dr. Berg explains the dangers of doing high fat diets. High fat diets are only dangerous if you combine it with sugar. The combination of sugar to a fat or protein is called glycation or combining a pure carbohydrates, meat or fat and cook it could create what is called AGE’s or Advanced Glycation End products.

Effects of AGE’s in the Body
• Stiffen Things
• Clog
• Inflammation
• Age the Body
• Involved in many degenerative diseases – Diabetes, Liver Disease, Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease, Kidney Disease

So I know you have heard that high fat diets are bad for you, they’re very dangerous, but in reality, high fat diets are only dangerous if you are combining them with sugar. There’s a term I want to introduce you to it’s called glycation. What is glycation? What’s happening is you’re bonding sugar to a fat or protein so when you consume sugar with protein or sugar with fat, you create this glycation as in deep fried french fries, barbecue ribs, doughnuts, so you’re combining a carbohydrate with sugar, meat with sugar, pure carbohydrate with fat and you cook it, you create AGEs or Advanced Glycation End-products. Now what is that? That is a compound that gives you very sticky protein, they stiffen things, they make the arteries stiffer. They clog things up, they create inflammation, they age the body, they’re involved in many degenerative diseases, as in diabetes, liver disease, alzheimer’s, heart disease, kidney disease . Now the two things that can create this effect are the combination of sugar with either protein or fat when it’s cooked, when you consume it, or if you’re consuming these separately at the same time, the body heat will create that situation. So if you avoid sugar you have nothing to worry about.

6 Things Muscles Tell You About Your Nutrient Status

September 8, 2020

Are your muscles trying to tell you something? Here’s what you can find out about your nutrient status from your muscles. 

Timestamps:
0:00 Your muscles and your nutrient status 
0:20 Pain and inflammation
0:48 Low recovery
1:22 Burning muscles
2:22 Twitching
3:34 Cramps
3:52 Weak muscles

Today we’re going to talk about the 6 things that your muscles will tell you about your nutrient status. This is a very important video for those who have any type of problem with the muscles. The muscle is an organ, and it’s a great indicator of all sorts of nutrient deficiencies in the body.

6 things your muscles tell you about your nutrient status:

1. Pain and inflammation (especially low back pain)
This could be a vitamin D deficiency 

2. Low recovery from exercise
This could be an omega-3 fatty acid deficiency. 

3. Burning in the muscles (or restless leg syndrome) 
This could be a condition called lactic acidosis, where there is too much lactic acid in the muscles. This could be a vitamin B1 deficiency. Nutritional yeast may help as well as avoiding refined carbs and sugar. 

4. Twitching or tetany 
This could be a low calcium situation. You could take calcium (not calcium carbonate) but, if you’re doing enough calcium foods, it could be that you’re too alkaline. If you’re too alkaline, you could try taking apple cider vinegar. 

5. Cramps 
This could be a potassium deficiency, magnesium deficiency, or a sodium deficiency. You may need salt or these electrolytes. 

6. Weak muscles 
This could be a vitamin E deficiency. The type of vitamin E that you may need is called tocotrienols.

Can bacteria from your teeth affect your heart? Find out.

2:03 Sources of vitamin K2 
2:45 What to do 
3:13 Natural antibiotics 

Today we’re going to talk about the connection between the health of your teeth and the health of your heart. If you have problems with your teeth, it can more than double the problems in your heart. 

It has been found that some of the bacteria in your teeth can actually end up in the heart. So, if you have some type of infection in the gums, certain microbes can get into the bloodstream and travel down to the heart. This could lead to clots. 

It has also been found that certain microbes in your teeth can end up in your joints. One type of microbe found in the teeth has even been found in 84% of stroke victims.

Vitamin K2 helps keep your bones and teeth strong. When you’re missing vitamin K2, the calcium from your bones and from your teeth travel into your arteries, soft tissues, and joints. People deficient in K2 could end up with more calcified arteries and dental problems.

Sources of vitamin K2:
• Butter 
• Liver 
• Egg yolks
• Certain cheeses
• Fermented soy products 

One of the most important things you can do is to not eat sugar. Sugar feeds the microbes. The microbes ferment the sugar and give off an acid that creates destruction in your teeth and the soft tissues around the teeth. 

In the presence of sugar, your body can’t use vitamin C. Vitamin C is necessary for the collagen that holds the tooth into the bone. 

Natural antibiotics:
• Oregano 
• Thyme 
• Garlic 
• Clove 

But, keep in mind that these herbal antibiotics may not be as beneficial unless you’re on a healthy diet (healthy keto).

I thought Fasting Was Supposed to Give You Energy

If you’re tired while fasting, here’s how to get more energy fast. 

Timestamps:
0:00 Why am I tired while fasting? 
0:15 The first reason why you may be tired while fasting 
1:14 How to speed up the process of converting to fat burning 
2:02 What to do if you have severe insulin resistance
2:47 The second reason why you may be tired while fasting 

In this video, we’re going to talk about why you may be fatigued while fasting. There are two reasons why you may be getting more tired instead of getting more energy while fasting. 

Fasting is supposed to take you from burning sugar to burning fat. When you’re fully adapted to ketosis, you’ll likely feel good and have tons of energy. But, if you don’t feel that way, it could be that you’re not at full fat-burning capacity. It typically takes about 3-7 days to fully get into fat-burning. 

How to get into fat-burning fast:  
• Keep your carbs low (below 40g per day, or below 20g if you have severe insulin resistance)
• Do fasting (1-2 meals a day)
• Take MCT oil or exogenous ketones (if you have severe insulin resistance) 
 
In order for the ketones to be burned in the energy factory (the mitochondria), it needs helper nutrients (cofactors). You need a combination of B vitamins, and you need minerals. If you’re deficient in these going into the keto program, you may experience keto fatigue. In this case, it may be helpful to take nutritional yeast and a good mineral blend.

Today we’re going to talk about how long it could take a diabetic to go blind. Diabetes-related retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness. 

Other complications of diabetic retinopathy:
• Numb feet 
• Chronic infections 
• Kidney damage 
• Heart damage 
• The loss of cognitive function 

High levels of blood sugar cause bleeding of the capillaries of the eye. Eventually, the retina dies because of a lack of nutrients and oxygen. 

After 10 years of having chronically high blood sugar, you could start to develop complications of diabetes. Things get worse as time goes on. Something else to keep in mind is that this high blood sugar situation was probably hidden for many years before you were diagnosed. It can take a very long time of having insulin resistance before you develop diabetes. 

Other complications of high blood sugar:
• Fatigue (especially after you eat lunch)
• Having to get up several times a night
• Constant thirst 
• Urinating constantly 
• Skin tags 
• Poor circulation 

What you could do:
• Bring your carbs way down (healthy keto)
• Do intermittent fasting 
• Take benfotiamine (4 capsules per day)

2:27 What you could do

In this video, I want to talk about why it may be beneficial to do fasting before, during, and after surgery. Fasting creates some interesting effects to help speed up the healing process. 

How fasting can help speed up the healing process:

1. There is a spike in ketones
Ketones are anti-inflammatory. Surgery, trauma, or injury all cause pain and inflammation. Fasting may help decrease the pain as well. 

2. It stimulates autophagy 
This is a condition where you recycle damaged proteins. 

3. It can increase human growth hormone
This has everything to do with growing muscle and proteins. 

Carbohydrates create more inflammation and blood sugar issues. Carbo-loading after an operation could just create more inflammation. 

If you’re going to have surgery, and you have the ability to prepare for the surgery, it may be best to start intermittent fasting 2 weeks before the surgery. This way, you’re fully adapted to fat-burning, and you can go into the surgery without any problems with the blood sugars. Right after the surgery, you may want to do a more prolonged fast (at least 48 hours). 

During your fast, it may be best to take certain nutrients, such as:
• Sea salt
• Electrolytes
• B-vitamins 
• Amino acids 
• Vitamin D
