Can taking MCT oil break a fast? Here’s what you should know.

1:30 Can MCT oil break your fast?
1:45 Benefits of ketones

In this short video, we’re going to talk about MCT oil and fasting. Many people wonder if MCT oil will break a fast. I want to answer this question. 

MCT oil stands for medium-chain triglycerides. It is a type of fat that is usually extracted from palm oil or coconut oil. Coconut oil has MCT oil in it, but when you’re taking MCT oil, you’re getting just medium-chain triglycerides. MCT oil is a type of fat that can turn into ketones very fast. 

I define breaking a fast as diminishing the results of a fast. 

Fasting benefits:
• Weight loss 
• Cognitive benefits
• Mood benefits 
• Decreased inflammation 
• Anti-aging 

These benefits come from ketones directly as well as turning on or turning off certain genes. For example, fasting may inhibit certain genes like cancer genes. 

MCT oil will not break a fast very much and only for a very short period of time. This is because MCT oil turns into ketones very fast, and the benefits of ketones are huge. 

Benefits of ketones: 
1. Decreased hunger 
2. Better brain energy 
3. Easier transition to ketosis
4. Stimulates metabolism 
5. Increased energy

Stage 4 Cancer Success Story: You Have to See This!

11:22 Key takeaways
17:56 Final thoughts

In this video, I have an amazing success story to share with you. Guy Tenenbaum had stage 4 cancer. He is now cancer-free!

For many years, Guy dealt with numerous health problems, including:
• Type II diabetes
• Hypertension
• High cholesterol
• Joint and bone pain
• Chronic inflammation
• Weight problems

After repeatedly insisting on a PSA (a protein that can be produced cancerous tissue in the prostate) test, doctors discovered that Guy had serious cancer.

They told them that there was nothing they could do for him and that he only had a few months to live.

Guy then searched out other options and opinions. Other doctors told him the same story. But he did not give up hope—he did not accept what doctors told him was his fate.

Guy then decided to take his health into his own hands. He began to study everything he could on cancer.

Then, he discovered the realm of natural medicine and fasting. He fasted for 45 days. During his fast he consumed natural cancer-killing nutrients.

There are two key takeaways:
1. Prolonged fasting helps induce autophagy
2. Low or no-calorie nutrients and herbs are vital along the way to increase the cancer-killing power of fasting

Guy consumed:
• Green tea
• Ginger
• Turmeric
• Pepper
• Salt
• Protein supplements
• Vegetables
• Garlic (whole and supplements)

Today, Guy is healthy and cancer-free!

What Fasting Does to Growth Hormone

July 4, 2020

Growth hormone is the ultimate anti-aging hormone. Here’s how you can increase it by fasting!

DATA:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC329619/

0:32 Benefits of growth hormone
1:02 Facts about growth hormone
1:24 How to boost growth hormone with fasting
3:13 Fasting and protein intake
4:24 Summary

In this video, we’re going to talk about how fasting influences growth hormone.

As you age, growth hormone decreases. When you’ve reached your 60s, 70s, and 80s, there’s not much growth hormone left. In turn, this affects your proteins, which causes your skin, joints, muscle, and hair to age.

Increasing growth hormone helps you preserve proteins that keep you looking youthful.

Growth hormone also helps you:
• Burn body fat
• Increase your lean muscle mass
• Preserve your muscle/prevent muscle loss
• Increase your bone density
• Boost your collagen

Growth hormone peaks at puberty, spikes when you’re sleeping, lowers when you eat, increases with high-intensity interval training, and plummets when you’re stressed.

Most importantly, growth hormone increases when you fast.

• A two-day fast increases growth hormone by up to 200%
• A three-day fast increases growth hormone by up to 300%
• A seven-day fast increases growth hormone by up to 1250%

Short-term fasting or intermittent fasting causes four-times better muscle preservation than a low-calorie diet. Fasting also inhibits protein breakdown—which is known as catabolism.

Fasting is an excellent way to support your brain and nervous system.

Keep in mind that the dietary recommendations for protein are between .6-.8 grams of protein per pound of body fat for each meal. You don’t necessarily need to have a protein shake or other protein supplement before every workout or during your fast.

The 5 Tips to STOP Grazing & Snacking

July 3, 2020

Snacking and grazing are two deadly health destroyers. Here’s how to stop.

Timestamps:
0:00 Snacking and grazing
0:05 The difference between grazing and snacking
0:48 The problems with snacking and grazing
3:18 Fasting
4:15 What to do

Today we’re going to talk about the problems with snacking and grazing, and how to stop snacking and grazing.

With snacking, you may have a certain time that you have a snack. With grazing, there’s no limit on how much you eat, what you eat, or when you eat. You eat constantly. I believe some of the worst advice a person can give is to snack to prevent overeating.

When people start snacking and grazing, they can get into a cycle of raising their blood sugar and insulin, then dropping their blood sugar. Eating causes hunger about one and a half hours later, especially when consuming carbohydrates. Then, the process repeats. If someone is stuck in this snacking cycle, eventually, they could develop high insulin, which could then lead to insulin resistance.

Eating and depression:
You might feel better temporarily, but then the high insulin could cause depression to worsen.

Eating when tired:
The more you eat to try to get more energy, the more tired you’ll be.

Eating when bored or stressed:
The more you eat when bored or stressed, the more you release cortisol, which could cause you to be more stressed.

Eating carbs for pleasure:
You could spike dopamine, putting yourself at risk for developing dopamine resistance.

Eating for no reason:
Some people eat because the food is there, and then they get stuck in the snacking trap.

Many people don’t realize that when they do fasting correctly, they can put the body in a condition where there is no hunger or cravings. This is because your body is essentially eating your own fat all day long. Fat generates ketones, which is a clean fuel. You’ll feel good, you could have improved cognitive function, and you could have an enhanced mood.

What to do:
1. Do not eat breakfast (most important)
2. Understand that eating causes hunger
3. Do not make junk foods available
4. Stay very active
5. Avoid carbs when you eat

What Garlic Does to Cancer

July 2, 2020

2:03 Why you don’t hear about garlic benefits for cancer
2:19 Check out the keto recipe channel

In this video, we’re going to talk about the influence garlic has on cancer. Most people know by now that garlic is very healthy. It has potent anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties. At the same time, it doesn’t harm beneficial gut microbes—only pathogens.

When it comes to cancer, garlic is also beneficial. When you crush garlic, there’s a potent compound released called allicin. It causes harm to cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.

Here are the benefits of allicin and garlic:

1. Reduces the growth of tumor cells

2. Inhibits cancer in humans

3. Causes cancer cells to induce apoptosis (cell death)

4. Anti-proliferative – stops the reproduction of cancer cells

5. Chemoprotective – protects your body when undergoing chemotherapy.

6. Induces autophagy in human liver cancer cells

These benefits of garlic are mind-blowing. Who would have guessed garlic would be so powerful? Unfortunately, you won’t hear about these benefits often because you can’t patent garlic and sell it as an expensive medication.

Why 80 Percent of People with COVID-19 have No or Mild Symptoms

80% of people with COVID-19 have no symptoms or mild symptoms. Here’s why.

1:30 Why 80% of people have no COVID-19 symptoms 
2:30 Herd immunity 

In this video, we’re going to talk about why 80% of people infected with COVID-19 have no symptoms or mild symptoms. This may not only be because they have a strong immune system.

I found some fascinating research, which links getting immunity to a past coronavirus (there are four), which will then give a person some immunity to the current coronavirus. 

Past coronaviruses have been responsible for mild upper respiratory infections. These coronaviruses are worldwide and very common. About 60-90% of people have been exposed to these viruses. 

This study showed that if a person is exposed to one of the past coronaviruses, they could have immune memory against COVID-19. This means that if we already have immunity to one or more of these past coronaviruses, then a large percentage of people may have herd immunity without ever being infected. 

This could be why about 80% of the population has no COVID -19 symptoms or mild symptoms. It’s not 100% dependent on the immune system. It also has to do with having antibodies to these other coronaviruses. 

If you have a strong immune system, and you have antibodies to a past coronavirus, then you may have no symptoms. 

If you have a weak immune system and antibodies to a past coronavirus, then you may have mild symptoms. 

Herd immunity is where the majority of the population (at least 60%) has already been infected, so they have antibodies. But, based on this research, we might not need to achieve 60% herd immunity, we may only need 30%.

Key Nutrients and Herbs for Fasting

July 1, 2020

Try these key nutrients and herbs for fasting to help compound your results and give you more benefits. 

Timestamps:
0:00 What type of nutrients do you need while fasting?
0:10 Prolonged fasting 
0:20 Nutritional deficiency 
1:17 Is this still fasting? 
1:40 Fasting benefits
2:15 Nutrients for fasting 
4:10 Two nutrients you don’t need for a fast
4:55 Herbs for fasting

Today we’re going to talk about what nutrients you should take when doing a fast. When you’re doing intermittent fasting, this is less important. But, when you do prolonged fasting (48-72+ hours), this becomes very important. Most people going into a prolonged fast are already deficient in at least one nutrient. A fast can then exaggerate this deficiency. 

A nutritional deficiency could create symptoms such as:
• Dizziness 
• Feeling faint
• Feeling tired
• A rash 
• Muscle cramps 
• Palpitations 
• Feeling cold  

Taking nutrients or herbs goes against the true definition of fasting, which is drinking only water, eating nothing, and not taking any nutrients or herbs. But, there are not enough calories involved in taking nutrients or herbs to bump a person out of ketosis or affect the benefits of fasting. 

Taking nutrients may not only help prevent a nutrient deficiency, but it may also help enhance a person’s antioxidant network. 

Key nutrients for fasting:
1. Electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, sodium, and chloride) 
2. B vitamins (nutritional yeast) 
3. Trace minerals (zinc, selenium, and iodine)
4. Vitamin D (sun, cod liver oil
5. Vitamin C 

2 nutrients you probably don’t need for a fast:
1. Iron 
2. Calcium 

Herbs for fasting:
• Green tea 
• Garlic
• Wheatgrass juice powder  
• Turmeric
