Did you know that diabetes is the fastest growing disease on earth?

Why is diabetes the fastest growing disease?
Carbohydrates are the real culprit, and also the frequency of eating. 

When you eat carbs, you get too much sugar in the blood. Your pancreas has a cell called the beta cell. Its job is to make insulin. Insulin’s job is to get the glucose out of the blood to maintain normal glucose. 

What is diabetes?
It usually takes 10-20 years to develop diabetes. Diabetes is a disease where you have too much glucose in the blood. 

It takes a long time for diabetes to show up because, in the meantime, your pancreas is trying to help you out by producing more insulin than it should to keep the blood glucose normal. Now, the cells are going to start resisting the insulin, because too much insulin is toxic. With this happening, a condition is being created called insulin resistance.

Eventually, the beta cell starts to get tired and fail. It’s not producing insulin, so insulin is going to go down, and the blood glucose goes up, resulting in diabetes.

Diabetes is diagnosed very late on the chain of events. 

What to ask your doctor if you are a diabetic:

1. Isn’t diabetes a disease of too much sugar in the blood?
2. Then, why aren’t you recommending that I go on a low-sugar diet or low-carb diet?

Action steps:
• Get on healthy keto and do intermittent fasting, so you can decrease the need for your pancreas to work so hard.

4 Ways to Lower Ammonia in the Brain

December 3, 2019

Elevated ammonia in the brain can affect your mental clarity, cognitive function, and more. Here’s what to do.

1:10 What is ammonia?
1:14 Microbes and ammonia 
1:48 Ammonia in the brain
2:50 Natural remedies

Today, we’re going to talk about ammonia and ammonia toxicity in the brain. 

When you’re fasting or doing the ketogenic diet, you’re generating a lot of ketones which are acidic. Ammonia is generated to counter some of the acidity of the ketones. This isn’t a bad thing.

If you consume a lot of protein, you may also smell ammonia, which is usually not a problem unless you have liver damage. 

If you have liver damage or kidney damage, you may not break down ammonia fully to urea. This can cause it to build up and back up into the brain. 

What is ammonia?
Ammonia is a by-product of protein. 

An imbalance of your microbes can also generate excessive amounts of ammonia, which is one cause of ammonia in your brain. 
Ammonia in the brain:
When ammonia elevates in the brain, it can be toxic to the neurons and affect your mental clarity, cognitive function, mood, and can even cause a coma. 

Over-exercising or glyphosate from GMO products can also cause too much ammonia. 

Natural remedies to lessen the amount of ammonia in your body:

1. Sauerkraut 
2. Veggies
3. Moderate protein 
4. Manganese

Are You Dependent on Caffeine for Energy?

Are you addicted to caffeine? Here’s what you need to do.

3:25 Why you might be tired

In this video, we’re going to talk about caffeine and energy. Are you dependent on caffeine for energy? If so, you came to the right video. 

Stimulant vs. fuel

Stimulant:
A stimulant gives you the appearance of fuel, but it’s not fuel. 

When adenosine (the energy currency in the body) gets used, adenosine breaks off and builds up during the day. At the end of the day, it can make you sleepy. Caffeine blocks this natural chemical allowing dopamine, serotonin, glutamate, and GABA to go higher. When these neurotransmitters increase, you get more mental clarity, creativity, and energy. 

When you consume caffeine over time or in large amounts, you start developing resistance in the cells. You’re going to need more and more to create the same effect, and it starts to throw off your neurotransmitters. 

This is why, after consuming caffeine, you may experience a few caffeine side effects like:

• Nervousness
• Insomnia 
• Increased heart rate
• Depression
• Edgy 
• Anxiety 

Caffeine also depletes:

• Vitamin B1
• Vitamin B5 
• Vitamin B6 

Fuel:
• Ketones
• Fatty acids
• Glucose

What I recommend:

• Cutting down the amount of caffeine you consume 
• To increase energy take exogenous ketones or MCT oil 

Why you might be tired:

• Low vitamin D
• Low potassium 
• Low protein
• Low/high blood glucose
• Low thyroid
• Low testosterone 
• Insufficient sleep
• Anemia

1:22 Other things going on with the brain and Alzheimer’s 
3:42 What to do

Today we’re going to talk about Alzheimer’s disease. I’m going to cover a little bit about the Alzheimer’s brain. 

Alzheimer’s disease explained:
The brain is composed of neurons, and you have synapses between the neurons where communication travels, and certain electrical impulses occur. 

The brain only represents 2% of all the tissues, but it takes up 20% of all the fuel. It’s a fuel hog.

The essence of Alzheimer’s is basically atrophy of the neuron, and you’re losing synapses. The reason why this is happening is because they are starving to death. They are starving of glucose, which is their fuel. 

Other things going on with the brain and Alzheimer’s:

• Amyloid plaque 
• Glycation
• Loss of oxygen 
• Loss of hippocampus 
• Low insulin (the rest of the body has high insulin)

What to do if you have Alzheimer’s or you’re looking for Alzheimer’s prevention: 

• Run your brain on ketones 
• Take ketones directly (exogenous ketones or MCT oil)
• Do intermittent fasting

2:35 A few things you can try 

In this video, we’re going to talk about high systolic blood pressure and the different causes of high systolic blood pressure. 

There is a condition for this called isolated systolic hypertension. This is the most common type of hypertension in those over 65 reported by the Mayo Clinic. 

Causes of high systolic blood pressure:

• Anemia 
• Hyperthyroid 
• Diabetes
• **High cortisol 

High cortisol causes significant sodium retention and creates significant potassium suppression. Any time you suppress potassium, you can start getting high blood pressure from that alone. High cortisol can also affect the sympathetic nervous system. It can also cause the suppression of nitric oxide. Beets, garlic, meat, and dark green vegetables are high in nitric oxide. 

Here are a few things you can try:

1. Take more vitamin D (at least 20,000 IUs with 200 micrograms of vitamin K2)
2. Consume more potassium

2:04 How to burn fat 
2:20 Insulin resistance 
2:37 When you’re on the right path
3:09 The best thing to do 

In this video, I want to share with you the simplicity of why people can’t lose weight. 

Fat burning explained:

The large battery — is equivalent to fat (about 100,000 calories of potential energy)

The medium battery — is glycogen (about 1700 calories of potential energy)

The small better — is carrying around 15 calories (1 tsp. of sugar for the blood sugar to be normal)

The above are the three types of fuels that you run your body on. Wouldn’t it make sense to tap into fat? The average person rarely gets to tap into fat and lose weight simply because they don’t understand this one simple thing.

There is a switch that tells the body which fuel it’s going to burn. When you reduce insulin, you can tap into fat. 

What controls insulin?

1. The amount of carbs you consume
2. How many times you eat in general

These two things increase insulin and keep you from fat burning. An average American consumes over 250-300g of carbs per day. To burn fat, you need to reduce that number to less than 50g. 

When you chronically consume a lot of carbs, you start to develop damage to this switch. This is called insulin resistance. This makes it really hard to tap into fat even when you do things correctly. 

When you’re on the right eating plan, and you decrease your frequency of eating, it could take time to fix this switch. The key is sticking to it until the switch is fixed, so you can tap into the fat and lose weight.

The best thing to do is to focus on other indicators of health. It’s get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy. For example, if your hunger and cravings are going down and your energy is going up, that means it’s working, and you just need to give it more time. 

To combine lowering your carbs and not eating too frequently, you need to try healthy ketosis and intermittent fasting.

4:06 How to run on ketones

Today we’re going to talk about the diabetic brain.

The brain uses 20% of all of the energy generated in the body—it’s an energy hog. 

Diabetes type 3 is Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is really diabetes of your brain. The effects of high blood sugar cause atrophy of certain parts of the brain, which then causes a loss of memory and much more. 

There is something called Nasal Insulin Delivery, which is believed to enhance memory. A healthy brain has 4 times as much insulin and 10 times as many insulin receptors. This means that when you have diabetes, you have an insulin deficiency, as in insulin resistance. We need the right amount of insulin in the brain for it to work correctly. 

The brain does not store glycogen. It’s dependent on glucose from your blood. 

60% of your fat turns into fatty acids that your heart and muscles can use as fuel, but not the brain. 40% of the fat can turn to ketones, which your brain not only can run on, it loves to run on ketones. If you have ketones and glucose in your blood, the brain will always pick ketones as fuel over glucose.

Benefits of ketones for the brain:

• Ketones can act as an antioxidant in the brain 
• Ketones have anti-inflammatory properties
• Ketones can increase oxygen in the brain 
• Ketones can bypass some of the damaged neurons and feed the brain directly 

To run on ketones, you have to bring your carbs down to at least less than 50 grams per day. The average person in America consumes almost 300 grams of carbs.

Do You Subtract Sugar Alcohol Sweeteners for Net Carbs on Keto

November 28, 2019

Should you really subtract sugar alcohols? Here’s what I think.

0:11 What you would normally do
0:20 Why?
0:34 Net carbs
0:44 I disagree
1:32 Stevia or monk fruit

I wanted to create this short video on sugar alcohols to answer the question, “should you subtract sugar alcohol sweeteners as your net carbs?”

Normally you would take the total carbs on the back of the label and minus the fiber as well as the sugar alcohols. In theory, sugar alcohols don’t get absorbed in the small intestine or raise the blood sugars. The thought is because they don’t act just like sugar, we can deduct sugar alcohols to get the net carbs.

However, I disagree with this. Out of all of the sugar alcohols, there is only one that is zero on the glycemic index, which is erythritol. If you have erythritol as your sugar alcohol on keto, definitely subtract it from your total carbs to get your net carbs. But, sugar alcohols like xylitol, maltitol, and sorbitol produce a reaction on the glycemic index. It’s not high, and it’s less than table sugar and glucose, but it’s not zero.

I would not recommend deducting sugar alcohols like xylitol, maltitol, and sorbitol in your calculations. But, again, you can deduct erythritol.

If you’re consuming stevia or monk fruit, you don’t have to worry about these. They have such a small amount of calories, and you do not have to factor them into the equation at all because they don’t spike insulin.

Today, we’re going to talk about sugar and nutrients. I want to cover why sugar depletes nutrients. 

Why sugar depletes nutrients (as well as refined carbs, juices, and sodas):
In your energy factory called the mitochondria, there is an engine that involves fuel and oxygen. In order to burn glucose, there are essential cofactors or coenzymes that are basically the keys that start the engine. 

Essential cofactors and coenzymes:

• B1
• Zinc 
• Potassium
• Magnesium 
• Chromium 
• Manganese 
• Calcium 
• Other B vitamins 
• Vitamin C 

The above are essential for burning glucose. The process in the mitochondria can’t work without these nutrients. 

If you’re consuming pure glucose without these nutrients, your body will pull them from your reserves, and it’s going to start depleting you of these nutrients. 

Cane sugar and molasses both have nutrients, so you won’t deplete them. However, you will still have issues because of the glucose. 

What you really need to do, if you’re not already, is healthy keto with intermittent fasting.
