Hi guys, in this video, I want to give you an overview of healthy keto (ketogenic diet) and intermittent fasting from A to Z. We're going to take a look at all of the things that happen, and all of the barriers that you might run in to on this diet plan. 

A typical person has breakfast, lunch, and dinner—don't forget about the snacks. 

The average person also deals with:

 • Belly fat
 • Fatigue
 • Memory problems
 • Lack of focus
 • Cravings
 • High blood pressure
 • Anxiety
 • Depression
 • Diabetes 

The common denominator of all these issues is high levels of insulin. You may have insulin resistance, which is causing high levels of insulin. We have to fix the insulin problem, and the way to help do it is through the ketogenic diet. Keto is going to lower your carb intake and help reduce the insulin. 

Intermittent fasting works because you're going to eat less frequently. Every time you eat, you trigger insulin. 

In between day 1 and day 3, you may go through the transition period, also known as keto-adaptation. 

You may experience symptoms such as:
 • Low blood sugar
 • Lightheadedness
 • Fatigue 
 • Constipation
 • Hunger
 • Cravings
 • Headaches

You have to realize it's temporary, and if you give up right here, you're going to lose the benefits of all the great things down the road. 

*Other effects from the keto-adaptation phase can be easily remedied by adding more minerals (potassium, sea salt) and B-vitamins (nutritional yeast). 

*If you cheat on this program, the next day you may experience more hunger and cravings—just get back on the wagon. 

*When you start going to 2 meals and then 1 meal, some people really stuff themselves, and overload the digestive system, and they end up with right shoulder pain and bloating. 

*Add lemon juice and apple cider vinegar to your liquid to help prevent the buildup of uric acid (gout, kidney stones) for those who are susceptible. 

* It's not true that your thyroid needs carbs. In fact, your body will be more efficient on this plan, and the need for thyroid hormones will be less—this is normal. 

*Your cholesterol may go up temporarily because your fat cells release it—this is what we want. Just stick with it, and things will come down eventually. 

*Lastly, when you eventually get into autophagy (cellular recycling), your cognitive function, memory, skin, weight, and heart will all greatly benefit.
