If someone has told you that the gallbladder is not essential, you need to check this out.

1:25 What happens when you have the gallbladder removed 
1:50 Important things to know about the gallbladder 

Many people don’t believe the gallbladder is essential. They say it’s an extra organ and it doesn’t do much. However, I strongly disagree with that. 

The gallbladder stores bile. If there is low bile to the amount of cholesterol in the liver or the gallbladder, you can develop gallstones or liver stones. Bile can help keep the cholesterol from forming stones and clogging things up. If bile gets clogged up in the liver, it can create inflammation, fibrosis, and eventually cirrhosis. Bile is a detergent. It makes the fat more absorbable into the small intestines. Bile helps break down fats and extract certain important nutrients from the fat. 

When a person has their gallbladder removed, bile is still made, and it still trickles through to the small intestines, but it’s going to be less concentrated and less regulated. 

Important things to know about the gallbladder:
1. Fat-soluble vitamins are completely dependent on bile for absorption. 
2. Without enough bile, you could have more constipation. 
3. Bile helps extract omega-3 fatty acids from the food you eat.
4. Vitamin D and vitamin A receptors are activated by bile. 
5. Bile keeps bacteria out of the small intestines. 
6. Bile is necessary for the conversion of T4 to T3. 
7. Bile regulates excess cholesterol. 
8. Ulcers and gastritis can both be side effects of a bile deficiency.

Are you on keto, and you cannot stop losing weight? If so, this video is for you.

While many people go on keto to lose weight, there comes a time when you need to stop losing weight.

There’s a difference between fasting and starving. If you don’t have any more fat reserves to tap into, you begin to starve. As you starve, your body starts using muscle and other vital tissue as fuel.

When you’re starving, you will experience:
• A lack of energy
• Weakness
• Moodiness

If you want to stop losing weight, try these things:

1. Increase your fat. Taking MCT oil is a great way to increase your fat.
2. Increase your carbs. I usually talk about lowering carbs, but if you can’t stop losing weight, keep your carbs at the max level of 50g.
3. Increase your exercise. This will help prevent muscle loss. Keep in mind that you need time to recover.

Make sure you take plenty of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and amino acids while fasting to prevent starvation and nutrient deficiencies.

If you still continue losing weight, start increasing your meals per day. If you’re only doing one meal, go to two meals.

In this video, I want to talk to you about how fasting affects your body. I’ve created a lot of videos on intermittent fasting. But in this one, I want to give you an overview of just how powerful it really is.

Brain – Fasting stimulates BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). This stuff is like Miracle Grow for the brain. BDNF helps repair and regenerate neurons. Fasting also helps with stress resistance, neurogenesis, mitochondrial production, and reducing inflammation.

Liver – Intermittent fasting helps improve your liver by restoring insulin sensitivity. Fasting also helps your liver function by detoxifying the body, acting as an antioxidant, reducing fatty liver, and lowering inflammation.

Gut – Intermittent fasting helps improve the diversity of your gut microbes. It also helps reduce the inflammation in your gut that contributes to leaky gut syndrome. Additionally, fasting helps prevent SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth).

Immunity – Fasting improves your immunity. It helps you become immune to pathogens by increasing the strength, size, and quality of white blood cells. Prolonged fasts (72+ hours) help produce stem cells—which basically helps you grow a new and stronger immune system.

Pancreas – The effects of fasting on your pancreas are huge. When you’re eating 3-6 meals a day, you are constantly triggering insulin. This creates damage to the cells in your pancreas. When you fast, you give your pancreatic cells a chance to heal and regenerate. In turn, this helps restore insulin sensitivity.

Fat – Fasting helps break down fat and get rid of fat cells. You also start generating ketones, which are a great source of energy. Intermittent fasting helps respire leptin sensitivity, which helps reduce inflammation and hunger.

Muscle – Fasting helps you restore insulin sensitivity, which also helps your ability to create muscle. Fasting also causes your muscles to go into a state where they stop breaking down—it prevents protein loss.

Heart – Fasting helps trigger the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation mode), which is the opposite of the sympathetic nervous system (stress mode). This helps with normalizing blood pressure levels and heart rate. Fasting also helps with heart rate variability.

A Common Keto Fat Ingredient That Will Stop Keto

July 15, 2020

Have you been using this common keto fat? It could stop weight loss!

Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

0:20 Grain oils
0:35 The problem with grain oils
2:13 Top sources
3:30 Good fats
3:38 What to do if you’re plateauing on keto
4:20 Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids

Today I want to tell you about a common keto-friendly ingredient that could stop your weight loss.

Keto is a low-carb diet. Most people know that, on keto, they need to cut out sugar and grains. But, it’s also important to cut out grain oils, or more specifically, seed oils. Many people call grain oils vegetable oils, but they’re really not vegetable oils. They don’t get the oil from vegetables—they get it from the seed of the plant.

The problem with grain oil is omega-6 fats. Omega-6 fats are highly inflammatory. They can actually trigger insulin resistance just as much as sugar or refined grains. Grain oils can also get stuck in the body and clog up the liver and brain. Not to mention that many grain oils are GMO.

Oils and foods higher in omega-6 fats:
• Soy
• Cottonseed
• Canola
• Corn
• Safflower
• Sunflower
• Almond flour
• Peanut butter

I’m not saying you can’t have some things higher in omega-6 fats like almond flour and peanut butter, but you might want to balance it out by getting omega-3 fats. An average person in America has 15 times more omega-6 than omega-3.

Top sources (some are keto, some are not)

1. Chicken
2. Grain desserts
3. Salad dressing
4. Chips
5. Nuts/seeds
6. Pizza
7. Bread
8. Fries
9. Pasta

The definition of keto is low-carb, and it doesn’t really emphasize the type of fat you should be consuming. I believe healthy keto is the best way to go.

Healthier oils:
• Coconut oil
• Butter
• Olive oil
• Avocado oil

If you’re plateauing on keto, you may be consuming too many grain oils, or you could be using too much almond flour or peanut butter.

Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids:
• Fish
• Cod liver oil
• Grass-fed beef and other animal products
• Walnuts
• Chia seed
• Brussels sprouts

Do not use:
• Soy oil
• Cottonseed oil
• Canola oil
• Corn oil

Limit:
• Safflower oil
• Sunflower oil

Reduce these if you have a problem with inflammation or you’ve hit a plateau:
• Almond flour
• Peanut butter

Will MCT Oil Break a Fast?

July 5, 2020

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

Timestamps:
0:00 MCT oil and fasting 
0:10 What is MCT oil 
0:35 What does it mean to break a fast?
0:53 Benefits of fasting
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

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!

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.

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
