Obesity is an epidemic, and food is the most dangerous drug in the world. A lot has been written about the best ways to lose weight, but are you eating the right foods? Is your mind in the right place? Do you have the right trainer? On this episode, we speak to Curtis Fisher who lost 170lbs and turned his life around by using simple techniques that you can apply to your life as well. Getting your blood work is as important as any lifestyle change youre going to do, because you dont know what youre deficient in until you know. Curtis Fisher Three Takeaways Getting a good coach and getting someone who knows what theyre doing on the way down saves you so many problems once you are there. Dont get trapped in the scale. The scale is a fat persons tool; it is not a fit persons tool. Its about taking accountability and being accountable for how many calories you eat. At the start of the show Curtis Fisher shared on his early relationship with food, and the health scare that he had which kick-started his weight loss journey. Curtis then went on to talk about the psychology behind losing the weight, and how losing weight wont get rid of the demons in your head. Curtis went on to share his t

9 Things You’ll Struggle With On Keto And How To Overcome

The challenges you’ll face when you go keto. The common keto issues and how to overcome to help you pave the way to keto success. When I found keto, I thought it was going to solve everything for me. And I was promised just that. Heck, all I had to do was eat copious amounts of fat and all would be well with my weight in a matter of weeks. “Smooth sailing, keto adapt” they say. Gosh, I can’t tell you how misleading that information really was. Or, maybe I can tell you because you’ve fallen victim to the same claims. As with anything, when you adopt something new, there are bound to be struggles along the way. And keto is no different. While each of our keto experiences are unique (just like our bodies), there are 9 common struggles that each of us have likely gone through while going through the fat adaptation process. Whether you’re still stuck somewhere or want to load up your skills before hitting the trails, today’s keto video highlights the common struggles and how to overcome them. Plus, if you’ve been experiencing any of these things and are doing keto alone, you may be given a sense of comradery you didn’t have before as you learn that your feels are ALL o Continue reading >>

    If you haven’t listened to the podcast in full before going Keto, take the time to at least listen to the first episode titled “Getting Started”.
    Acronyms
    As Keto Freaks we love our acronyms. LCHF, NSV, ACV, HWC, OMAD, CICO, BPC …WTF?! For a quick guide, refer to the Acronym Wiki: https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/acronym-wiki/1687
    Keep it simple
    There is so much information on the web about Low Carb eating be it LCHF, Ketogenic, Paleo, Primal…watch out for overload of more than the carb kind!
    You’re on the Ketogenic Forums reading this thread, so it looks like Keto is your method of choice. Nice! To begin with aim to achieve a daily macros composition as follows:
    No more than 20g net carbohydrates (for those in the US and Canada subtract Dietary Fiber from Total Carbohydrates on the nutrition panel)
    Approximately 1-1.5g of protein per kg of lean body mass
    And the rest? Fat. Yep, that’s right, F.A.T. It’s time to get reacquainted and embrace all the fatty goodness on offer. Butter and cream and bacon, oh my!
    The general rule of thumb many Ketonians use is a ratio of 5:25:70 when starting out. 5% Carbs, 25% Protein and 70% Fat.
    How do you do this? Easy – have a look at a thread about this very thing: https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/the-entire-ketogenic-diet-in-one-sentence/497

    Calories
    But what about calories, I hear you say? Ahhh calories, that old chestnut. Calories in vs. Calories out, right? WRONG! Calories are not created equal, but don’t just take my word for it, great stuff on this very topic can be found in the section titled “Show me the Science”. A good place to start is here: https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/breaking-the-cico-myth/2702/5

    Some Keto Heads have daily caloric goals, others not so much. You’ll find what works for you pretty quickly.
    Now, for the Engineers and Virgos out there I can tell that your head is about to explode at this concept. Whaaaaaaat?! Before you curl up in a ball, rocking back and forth in the nearest dark corner, this calculator will give you some guidance: http://keto-calculator.ankerl.com/

    If you can’t have carbs then what can you eat?
    This is a question you might be asking yourself. It’s definitely a question that others will ask you and the answer you’ll be pleased to know is plenty!
    There are so many great recipes on the internet that you'll find on Pinterest, Blogs and Forums, not to mention the variety of ketogenic cookbooks available in both traditional and electronic format. Once you get used to keto cooking you may even choose to modify some of your old faves.

    Keto flu
    Not everyone gets the Keto Flu, a cute name for carbohydrate withdrawal, and for those who do experiences and intensity differs.
    Typical symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, upset stomach, fatigue and lack of mental clarity. Usually they present in the first day or so and don’t last with intensity much past the first week, but there are a number of things you can do to ease your body’s transition from using sugar as the primary source of fuel to fat, such as:
    Drink water, more water, and then even more water
    Watch out for low levels of sodium, magnesium and potassium – incorporate foods rich in these minerals like chicken and beef broth. Dust off those salt shakers and shake, shake, shake!
    Eat fat, more fat and then even more fat – if you’re hungry and you’ve reached your carbohydrate and/or protein macros for the day – eat fat
    Take a nap or even go for a gentle walk
    Supplements
    Take a multi vitamin daily. Listen to the 2 Keto Dudes podcast episode titled “Supplements”. Read this thread: https://www.ketogenicforums.com/t/essential-vitamins-and-minerals-question/264

    Fasting
    Forget about it. Seriously. Just focus on getting through the first two weeks.
    This is something you can consider incorporating into your routine in the future. When you’re ready, use the search function on the Ketogenic Forums and look up “Fasting” and “Zorn Fast”.
    Preparation Tips
    Before starting the Keto way of eating here’s a few tips to help get you going:


    Consult your medical practitioner

    Remove all non-keto food from your kitchen. If that’s something you can’t do (you may have family member’s or housemates that will not be boarding the keto train with you), then make sure these items are moved out of sight

    Shop and prep your first week’s meals in advance. This helps keep temptation at bay and assists if you’re feeling the effects of carb withdrawal or simply being too tired or cranky or busy to cook

    Ensure you have plenty of keto snacks on hand, eg. cold cuts, cheese, nuts, broth, etc. Be careful with your macros - carbs are sneaky little things and make their way into many foods either naturally (hello fruit!) or during processing (cured meats). Pay attention to nutrition labels, search the internet, download food apps for tracking…whatever helps you identify carbohydrate content before it goes into your mouth!

    Draw on the Keto community in the Ketogenic Forums for guidance, ideas and support. Don’t forget to use the search function in the top right-hand corner as there’s a good chance that your questions have been addressed in some way. This will also help you tailor your questions/comments so you get beneficial responses

    Keep calm and keto on!

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

    This is not a medical advice. It may not be a safe option for you. Please contact your physician for personal advice.
    I am 50 year old 6’1″(185cm) male, medical doctor. Over years I had my weight gradually reached 310 lb. (141kg). I started very low carbohydrate diet in 2014. After initial weight loss of about 40 lb.(18kg) I gained it almost all back. In 2015 since I did water and salt fast for 30 days without significant effort since I was already in ketosis already for quite some time. I drank water whenever I wanted it and took salt from hand whenever I wanted. In order to retain that water I need to take salt. I also dissolved Centrum Silver multivitamins in water and drank it couple times a week. I continued to work as a physician in a very busy practice. After 30 days I stopped fasting because I felt weak and had difficulty concentration at work.
    To break my fast I avoided carbohydrates, (no sugar, no fruit, no juice, and no starch). People have complications from re-feeding because glucose raise in blood stimulate insulin production and severe electrolyte shift in the body that may cause irregular heart beat and very rarely death.
    I ate small amount of broth, eggs, cheese. I took Thiamin, Magnesium Oxide, Potassium Chloride and Potassium phosphate for the first several days.
    In January 2016 I fasted for 35 days. I consumed water, salt, multivitamins. I broke my fast with broth, milk, heavy cream, eggs, very slow, small amounts, and several days. Again, I supplemented re-feeding with Thiamin, Magnesium, Potassium, and Phosphorous.
    During that fast my weight went from 321 lb. (146kg) to 266 lb. (121kg).
    Since then I started fasting every first week of every month. I did nothing to break a week long water and salt fasting, no vitamins, regular activity, no exercise. I ate anything I wanted, but kept very low carb diet. Every month I gained about 30 lb. (14kg), then lost 22 lb. (10kg) during wasting week.
    It is quite easy to fast if you are on low carb diet. But it is not enough. Every month I gain 8 lb. (4kg), approaching my initial weight 321lb (146kg).
    Starting next month I will do two 6 days fast. On the first and 15th day of every month.
    This is not a medical advice. It may not be a safe option for you. Please contact your physician for a personal advice.

    Maybe it would be more effective to just skip breakfast daily and make sure you don’t binge on lunch and dinner.

  3. fitnfast

    I don’t understand what you are doing…fasting to lose then voluntarily regaining?? Surely you aren’t recommending this to anyone here, not that (I hope) anyone would want to.
    Intermittent fasting, whether 2 days a week, 3 or daily 16 hour fasts, combined with lowering carb intake, will result in lost weight, as long as it is done consistently. It sounds like you are on a major yo-yo eating plan.

Breastfeeding And The Keto Diet Tips

When I began researching the ketogenic diet, I found very little information regarding being a breastfeeding woman while cutting carbs. I decided I would try to put out my experience for others to take into account when deciding how to lose weight and/or feel better. If you are the mother of a young baby, under 4 months old, I recommend not yet experimenting with diets. If you can hold off, maybe even wait until their are six months old. At such a young age, the breastfeeding relationship is still iffy, and some women might struggle even without doing some dieting that may affect their supply. If you cannot bear to wait any longer, and want to start being healthier NOW, then I highly recommend you start with "maintenance mode" of the ketogenic diet. Rather than limiting yourself to 25 grams of carbohydrates in a day, increase that to 100 grams in a day to lessen how drastic of a change it will be. From there, slowly decrease your carbs over time. In any case, here are some tips. Tips for Breastfeeding Women on the Ketogenic Diet 1) Keep an eye on your breast milk supply. This is the most important. Because everyone is different, things affect people in different way. To be on the s Continue reading >>
