2 Why We Get Fat In the last 10 years science has discovered a new hormone that plays a big role in weight regulation – Leptin. Leptin exists in fat cells. Its job is to tell your brain that you’re full. For so many of us the signal isn’t working. We have become leptin resistant. Only recently have we discovered why this happens. In a word: Insulin. We’ll come back to leptin in a minute. First let’s talk about Insulin. Insulin is a master hormone. Its levels are a signal to many other hormones and functions. Insulin’s job is to convert blood sugar to body fat. Let’s say a diabetic has high blood sugar. 100 is normal. Let’s say it’s 300. You give them a shot of insulin and their blood sugar goes down to 100. Where did those 200 mg/Dl milligrams per deciliter of sugar go Insulin stored the energy in fat cells where it is safe. Body fat is a safe place to store extra Calories. On the other hand high blood sugar is dangerous. It’s corrosive. It leads to Type 2 Diabetes loss of limbs blindness kidney failure fatty liver and even cancer. Let’s say you are a thin healthy happy person. You eat 2000 Calories a day and you burn 2000 Calories a day. You feel great. Burning Calories and feeling good are the same thing. We feel good when we burn Calories. So as an experiment let’s say I walk around with you all day and every time you eat I’ll give you a shot of insulin just like they do with diabetics. Just like the IRS taking 25 off the top that insulin shunts 500 of your 2000 Calories away to body fat before it can be “spent.” You’ve now stored 500 Calories as body fat and you only get 1500 Calories to burn. You feel tired lazy and hungry. You are effectively starving. So you eat another 500 Calories and I give you another insulin shot. 100 of those 500 get stored as fat 600 total and you only get to burn 400. You’re still not operating at 100. Can you see how this is a vicious cycle High insulin means Calories that you SHOULD be able to burn instead get stored as fat. So why isn’t the leptin in your stored fat cells telling your brain that you’re full This is where the recent science comes in. Turns out that insulin blocks leptin receptors. Have you ever had the sensation of having a full belly and still being hungry That’s why. You may also think: that’s fine but nobody is walking around shooting me up with insulin all day The fact is eating a diet high in carbohydrate raises blood sugar which causes the pancreas to secrete more insulin. Worse over the years your insulin becomes less effective. It brings fat to the cells but the cells don’t want it. So it takes more and more insulin to do the job. This is called insulin resistance and is essentially type 2 Diabetes. The obvious solution is to reduce the amount of Insulin secreted by your pancreas. You can do that a couple ways. The hard way is to exercise your brains out. You’ve probably tried that. Did it work Doctors tell you to eat less and exercise more. Did that work Clearly it doesn’t work. The easiest and safest way to reduce the amount of insulin in your body is to reduce your carbohydrate intake. After only a few days on a well formulated ketogenic diet low carb high fat moderate protein you will lose cravings for sugar and starches. You will feel better. You will eat less because leptin is able to do its job. Your blood sugar and insulin will drop to safe levels. This IS the way to lose weight feel good and stop the progressive train that leads to type 2 diabetes loss of limbs blindness kidney failure fatty liver and even cancer. The best part Bacon

3 Is It Safe To Eat So Much Fat In a word yes. Saturated fat Yes. What Doesn’t that go against what doctors nutritionists and the government tell you Yes it does. Ask yourself: “Has the advice to lower intake of fat resulted in a healthy population” No way. In fact the rise in obesity and diabetes coincides with the onset of the low-fat movement that took full swing in the 80s. Most of what we believe about fat being dangerous comes from a single man: Ancel Keys. Keys had a hypothesis that consuming fat caused heart disease. It’s easy to understand. Just like sugar ends up in your blood so must fat. Turns out he was wrong. The fat in our blood is made by the liver from sugar. It’s the sugar in your diet that get turned into the fat that circulates in your blood otherwise known as triglycerides. Keys was a very persuasive man however. He performed now-refuted and very much flawed observational studies. In one study the 7 Countries Study he found a correlation between intake of saturated fat and an increased rate of heart disease. However he cherry picked his 7 countries from a list of over 20 only selecting the countries where his correlation was seen. Data from Italy and Japan where rates of Sugar were also recorded that showed that a correlation could have just as easily been made for sugar but Keys refused to. Countries who did not fit his hypothesis became known as paradoxes - The French paradox being that the French who eat some of the highest levels of saturated fat in the world have low rates of Heart disease as do the Swiss. The Russian Mortality Paradox is another. They eat some of the lowest levels of saturated fat and have a high incidence of mortality from heart disease. Consider the Inuit – or “Eskimo” people in the Arctic. They subsist on fish seal meat whale meat and blubber. They give the lean meats to the dogs. No heart disease. Consider the Maasai in Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania. They eat nothing but meat fat milk and blood. No heart disease. Clearly Ancel Keys was wrong. Yet in 1977 Keys and his cronies were able to convince the USDA to adopt the dietary guidelines still in effect today. In her book “The Big Fat Surprise” named best science book of 2014 by The Economist journalist Nina Teicholz TIE-shulz uncovers a myriad of randomized controlled trials – the holy grail of scientific studies – that show absolutely no correlation between the intake of saturated or other fat and heart disease. In 2014 a review of 76 observational and RCTs with more than 650000 participants found that those with a high saturated fat intake did not have an increased risk of heart disease. 76 studies No proof The combination of eating a high carbohydrate and a high fat diet is clear. Your insulin is high. Fat is denser than carbs calorie wise. All the fat you eat gets stored but only because of the carbs which raise insulin. Sure that’s dangerous. However take away the carbs and your body can burn the fat for fuel. That leaves us with a paradox. If you want to lose weight eat a bacon double cheeseburger with extra cheese and bacon even mayo. Just ditch the bun. It doesn’t sound healthy but in fact it is.

4 How Does Keto Work A ketogenic diet or keto for short is any diet that puts your body in a state of nutritional ketosis and your body is burning fat either body fat or fat that you eat for fuel. If you eat a high-carb diet and most of us do your body burns glucose for fuel. There are problems with glucose. The body can store about 2000 Calories of glucose energy at any one time in the form of glycogen. Once that is depleted you can lose energy sometimes called “bonking” and you need sugar STAT Excess glucose raises insulin. Insulin drives glucose into skeletal cells for storage as glycogen and/or burning. It also drives glucose into the liver for storage as glucose and/or burning and/or conversion into fat. Glucose is also shipped out in LDL or stored in the liver as foie gras. Insulin also drives glucose into fat cells to be converted into fat and stored. Fructose one half of table sugar – and the sugar in all fruit goes directly to the liver to be converted to fat. That’s right. All fruit sugar ½ of all table sugar and high fructose corn syrup are NOT burned as energy. It’s stored as fat. Excess glucose in the blood can cause major damage as we’ve already discussed leading to type 2 diabetes – a disease the medical establishment tells you is progressive only gets worse and cannot be reversed. If you remove carbohydrates and instead eat moderate protein and higher levels of fat insulin levels drop because there is much less glucose to operate on. When insulin is low your liver can burn fat for fuel. That’s just the way it is. Your body can’t burn stored fat unless insulin is low. The byproduct of burning fat is ketones. Ketones are essentially fatty acids that most cells in your body including your brain heart and other organs can use directly for fuel. In fact we are all born in nutritional ketosis. For 180000 years Homo Sapiens has been in nutritional ketosis most of the time living on animal protein and fat – with occasional plants nuts and fruits. Just because your body is in ketosis doesn’t mean that it’s particularly good at using fat for fuel. It takes 3 to 8 weeks to become fully fat-adapted. Your body forgets how to deal with glucose effectively and instead gets very efficient at dealing with fat and the ketones that come from fat burning. Once you are fully fat adapted you’ll find you have an unending source of energy. You could run a marathon and not run out of juice. Your body fat is your new source of energy and it doesn’t need to be replenished with food. Many advanced athletes are performing amazing feats of endurance while fasted As long as the body can burn body fat it’s smooth sailing. You can expect your cravings and hunger to disappear. As long as you stay away from carbs you won’t want them. The more fat-adapted you get the less you’ll want to eat “carbage.” You can expect to return to a healthy body weight in a relatively short period of time. WARNING: You must commit to the ketogenic diet in order for it to work. If you sneak bread or other carbs you could ruin yourself. Eating more fat with even moderate amounts of carbs – what some would consider low – isn’t going to work. Throw out all the tempting carbage. Don’t worry though. You will be able to eat amazingly good food. You must be committed or it won’t work for you. It takes a leap of faith to get started. But once you get a taste of ketones you won’t want to stop. The definitive book on the Ketogenic Diet is “The Art and Science of Low Carb Living” by Volek/Phinney.

slide 5:

5 Ketosis Ketosis is a state in which your liver breaks down body fat for fuel the byproduct of which is ketones. There are 3 types of ketone bodies: acetone acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybuterate acid. When we first go into ketosis we spill the ketone acetoacetate pee stick ketone. First a portion gets spontaneously converted into the ketones acetone breath ketone and enzymatically converted into beta-hydroxybuterate the ketone that your brain primarily uses for energy. Part of fat adaptation is to become better at making beta-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase the enezyme. Many people complain of bad breath and B.O. This is totally normal. It’s from acetone. It goes away after a while. Most of your body’s cells can use these ketones for energy directly just as well or better than they use glucose. There are a few types of cells that require glucose however. These include red blood cells cells in your eyes and parts of your brain. The good news: your liver has this built in glucose generator that produces glucose from protein. The process is called gluconeogenesis gluco sugar neo new genesis create. Your liver creates new sugar just enough for those vital cells to use. This isn’t a magic trick. It is indeed how our bodies have survived without carbs for literally thousands of years. Ketoadcidosis The biggest fear health care professionals have about ketosis is the risk of it going too far into a state of ketoacidosis. This happens when your ketone level goes too high turning your blood dangerously acidic. Type 1 diabetics run this risk. However if you have a working pancreas and most of us do you do not run the risk of going into this dangerous state. Again type 1 diabetics run this risk. If you are a type 1 diabetic you definitely should not adapt a ketogenic diet without the support of your health care professional. If you are a type-2 diabetic not taking insulin – or have pre-diabetes or even just metabolic syndrome you are safe. This chart shows optimum levels of ketones. Pee Strips Many people think they need to test their ketones with pee strips. The fact is pee strips only test for acetoacetate. Also pee strips only measure ketones wasted. In fact as you become more fat adapted the strips get lighter because your body is using more ketones and spilling less. It is much more accurate to use a breath meter like the Ketonix product or a blood ketone tester like the Freestyle Precision Neo glucometer.

6 Macronutrient Ratios macros You hear a lot of people say “to do keto right you have to stick to the macros.” That means getting 70 of your energy from fat 25 from protein and 5 from carbs. However you have to combine this rule with the fundamental rule that you can’t eat more than 20g carbs per day. One rule checks the other. If you eat 100g of carbs that doesn’t mean you now have to eat a pound of lard and a 24oz steak. That’s silly. They both go together. Also that 70 fat is total fat Calories burned. That could be fat that you are eating or fat from that Krispy Kreme you ate a decade ago stored body fat. It doesn’t mean every meal should be a stick of butter a few shrimp and a peanut. If you’re one of those people who likes counting things like Calories there is hope for you. You can download an app called MyFitnessPal and enter in the food that you eat. It will tell you what the macros are. Many people find counting carbs protein and fat is very comforting especially when starting out. It should be your goal however to learn to feel it out. After a while you will instinctively know what to eat and what not to eat and how much is too much. That’s real life. Obsession gets old quickly. ☺ Protein Many people who’ve done the Atkins diet failed because they ate too much protein. The reason the ketogenic diet works is because protein is limited to 1 to 1.5 grams per kilogram of lean muscle mass. For a 5’ 11’’ 300-pound guy like me that’s about 90-100 grams of protein per day. My Fitness Pal tells you how many grams of protein are in the food you eat. If you exercise you can eat more protein. You’ll get 70 to 78 grams of protein from 9 ounces of steak depending on which cut you prefer. Beef top sirloin has the most providing nearly 78 grams of protein from a 9-ounce piece. The same amount of tenderloin offers almost 73 grams a rib-eye steak contains 72 grams in a 9-ounce cut and flank steak has 70 grams of protein in 9 ounces. So you can see how easy it is to go overboard with protein on a low-carb diet. What happens when we over-eat protein Extra protein that which is not synthesized by muscles is metabolized for energy. Burned protein creates nitrogen. When you strip a nitrogen atom off an amino acid you have left a carbohydrate Carbon Hydrogen and Oxygen. So the pollution is turning those nitrogen atoms into ammonia and urea and peeing them out - which is what puts the stress on the kidneys. Human kidneys cant process more than about 3g/kg LBM of protein. Also when your body metabolizes protein insulin goes up. Not as much as with carbs but still a significant amount. So it’s best not to over-eat protein no matter what. You can use the Keto Calculator at http://keto-calculator.ankerl.com/ to calculate your ideal macros.

7 Electrolytes When you are eating keto your kidneys remove salts from your blood more than before. For this reason you need to up your salt intake. Just as importantly you must supplement potassium and magnesium. Without this you can look forward to leg cramps trouble sleeping nausea and all the things that come with electrolyte deficiency. You can take supplements but you can also make yourself a “keto-ade” and sip on it throughout the day. Morton Lite-Salt is ½ sodium and ½ potassium. Here’s one recipe for keto-ade: • 24 oz filtered water or tap water • ¼ Teaspoon Mortons Lite Salt • ½ Tablespoon Magnesium Citrate found with laxatives Mix well. Refrigerate for best taste. If you want to add your favorite sugar-free sweetener go ahead. But first read the handout on self- testing – and then test your sugar response to the various sweeteners. See the handout on Sweeteners.

slide 8:

8 Sweeteners Here’s a short list of artificial sweeteners you may consider using. • Xylitol • Erythritol • Stevia • Maltitol • Sorbitol • Sucralose Splenda • Aspartame Equal • Saccharine Sweet Low Some of these are poison. Saccharine causes cancer and Aspartame is linked to all kinds of neurological disorders. Any or all of them could cause an insulin response even though they don’t raise blood sugar. There are several ways insulin can spike. One is a gut hormone that tells your brain something sweet is afoot. However your mileage may vary. That’s why it’s best to test. See the handout on self-testing. I tried them all and landed on Xylitol. Xylitol is poisonous to dogs. It will kill them. Fortunately I don’t have a dog but if you do that might not be a good choice. Many people like an Erythritol/Stevia combination like Swerve. Sorbitol has a cooling effect that I dislike. Maltitol kicks me out of ketosis AND keeps me in the bathroom all day Xylitol does this to some people also. You may be different. If you really want to get into ketosis fast don’t use a sweetener. Why take a chance.

slide 9:

9 What To Expect Before you start your journey it’s best to get a complete blood profile including insulin liver function and vitamin D - and then talk to your doctor. Tell her you want to go on a ketogenic diet. Resistance usually comes in the form of fat-phobia and cholesterol-phobia. Read the handout on cholesterol. Bring the science with you. If your doctor still insists that you need carbs in order to live you might want to get another doctor. Also before you start measure yourself – at least your waist circumference. This is where you’ll see the most dramatic results around your liver. You should probably take an Omega 3 supplement and a multivitamin daily. In addition your doctor will tell you if you need vitamin D. Many of us are deficient. During the first or second week of keto eating you may – for a short time – experience symptoms of “carb withdrawal” sometimes referred to as “keto flu.” These include being tired achy nauseated and wanting to nap all the time. Just go ahead and nap. This is to be expected. During carb withdrawal your body isn’t quite good enough at burning fat and producing ketones. At the same time the organs and other cells are demanding ketones. It’s really phase one of fat adaptation. Once you get through it you will feel much better. Another symptom you might get is a rash sometimes referred to as “keto rash.” This is thought to be candida dying off. Candida is a yeast that lives on your skin. It’s harmless but doesn’t like keto for some reason. When it dies it creates an itchy rash. Thankfully it doesn’t last long. You can use any topical itch cream such as calamine lotion or hydrocortisone to treat the symptoms. After you get through withdrawal symptoms – and some people never experience them – you will probably enjoy a steady weight loss. And then… you will plateau. Plateaus can happen for a number of reasons. The first thing to do is nothing. Continue on as you normally do. Think about this. Your liver is purging itself of fat. Your blood sugar is falling. Your triglycerides are falling. Your blood pressure is normalizing. Your lean muscle mass is increasing. Measure yourself. Since muscle is denser than fat it weighs more per volume. As you lose fat and gain muscle your weight loss will slow or even increase. Let it happen and enjoy better health. If your first plateau happens after 3 to 8 weeks we have a secret weapon: fasting. You might want to try eating one meal per day with no snacking in between – only keto-ade. You can have coffee tea etc. but no sweeteners cream or any other nutrient. You will find that not only are you not hungry you will feel great. Which meal Most people eat only dinner. Consider eating a late lunch: 3PM. Fasting has been shown to help us bust through plateaus. See the handout on fasting for more information. There are of course other reasons why we plateau. Usually it’s because we are becoming more sensitive to certain foods or additives. See the handout on self-testing for more information.

slide 10:

10 Self-Testing There are certain fundamental foods that do not raise insulin – or raise it to a negligible level: fats protein if under your max daily allowance minerals pure vitamins green leafy vegetables. There are other foods that seem to affect everyone differently: Dairy artificial sweeteners nuts alcohol. For this reason the ketogenic lifestyle requires that you test these things on yourself. See the handout entitled “Testing Food Response Using a Blood Glucose Meter.” If you don’t have a blood glucose meter it may take you more time to test each food manually. Your level of cravings and your weight the next day should be an indicator although not entirely accurate of whether or not to include the food in question. I can’t stress enough how important testing is. You could save yourself lots of frustration and plateau time by figuring out which foods cause your blood sugar and/or insulin to spike. There are plenty of great foods you can eat. The trick is to omit the ones that hold you back.

slide 11:

11 Alcohol Hard Liquor has no carbs. This includes whiskey vodka non-flavored rum Scotch gin and pretty much any hard liquor. If it tastes sweet to you look it up online to check the sugar content. Wine has a few carbs 2.5g to 5g per glass. These add up. Beer is another story. Most beer is 10 to 30 carbs per glass. Alcohol pauses ketosis. For that reason excessive drinking at a meal will most likely prevent fat from being burned. The good news is that once your liver is done metabolizing the alcohol it goes right back to burning fat assuming you are in ketosis. My personal experience is if I’m going to drink it’s got to replace a meal. I usually wait 5 to 6 hours after eating lunch. Then instead of eating dinner I have drinks. I am still in the 300 pound range so I can get away with that. If I was 200 pounds or lighter I probably couldn’t. It’s best to stay away when you’re trying to get into ketosis. Maybe in a few weeks a glass of wine with dinner wouldn’t hurt too much. The most important thing to remember when drinking is that alcohol usually comes with sugar. Sugary drinks are not only really bad for your liver but they will cause weight gain not to mention hangovers. My go-to evening drink is a keto whiskey sour. I mix a jigger of rye whiskey a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and soda water over ice. Carb Counts: Beer: 12 oz Regular Beer: average is about 12 grams Light Beer: check the label –- most are 3 to 7 grams Ale: most are 5 to 9 grams Stout: variable –- about 20 grams Wine: 5 oz Dry Champagne: 2.5 to 4.5 grams Dry White e.g. Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay: 3 grams Off-Dry e.g. Riesling Chenin Blanc: 5 to 6 grams Muscat: 8 grams Dry Red e.g. Syrah Pinot Noir Cabernet Sav.: 3.5 to 4 grams Zinfandel: 4.2 grams Dessert Wines: 12 to 14 grams Sweet Late Harvest Wine: 20 grams

slide 12:

12 Exercise Exercise is always a good idea EXCEPT when you are becoming fat adapted. During the first few weeks of your keto adventure you will probably find exercise very difficult. That’s because your body is adapting to run on jet fuel fat instead of gasoline carbs. How will you know when you’re fat adapted You will be a not hungry and b wanting to exercise. Your body will tell you when it’s ready. Just listen. Once your body gives you the green light you most likely will WANT to exercise – a lot. No really. I never thought I would ever WANT to willingly exercise but I do. I started the ketogenic diet in February 2016. For 7 months I didn’t do any intended exercise. I lost 76 pounds and reversed type 2 diabetes. I also got rid of my meds. All of them. No exercise. After 7 months I got my recumbent tricycle out of the garage and started riding. Now I can’t get enough. I’m hooked. It’s not hard anymore. I feel great. I’m not achy. I and I weigh 290 pounds It’s frickin’ amazing. So lay low for a few weeks. When you feel like you HAVE to get up and move do so.

slide 13:

13 Fasting Fasting will happen naturally as you progress through your journey. Children should never fast. You should not fast until you are fat-adapted which could take from 3 to 8 weeks. Fasting has been proven to drastically reduce insulin levels and permanently improve insulin sensitivity. It is also a great therapy once fat-adapted for losing weight and increasing stamina mental acuity and physical performance. Think of the ketogenic diet as fasting-lite. Fasting does what the ketogenic diet does just faster. When you fast after a couple days your hunger goes completely away. Your body uses stored body fat for fuel you get a shot of adrenaline. This is an evolutionary advantage – when there’s no food your body gives you energy to go run down a wooly mammoth. You also get a surge of Human Growth Hormone which protects your muscles from being catabolized used for fuel. When people I know fast they can do super-human feats of endurance and strength. They can go on a 50 mile bike ride or lift weights for hours on end with no break. Body fat is a fantastic fuel because you never have to replenish it. After 3 or 4 days fasted your metabolism starts to slow down. This also makes sense from an evolutionary point of view. Your body “gets it” that there’s really no food around and begins to conserve energy… perhaps in anticipation of a famine. It still draws down body fat but doesn’t burn as much. Intermittent Fasting Intermittent Fasting is simply fasting for shorter periods of time in between times of feeding. You can go for 18 hours 24 hours 2 days alternate days etc. The more time you go without food the lower your insulin will go. Most people start their foray into fasting with a 1 day fast starting and ending at the same time of day/night. Intermittent fasting is a great way to bust through a plateau. Extended Fasting An extended fast typically goes 5 days or longer. Many of us in the ketogenic forum have done 7 day fasts. Tom Seest one of our admins just finished a 20 day fast. He called it a lazy fast because he had a few shrimp every day protein but no other nutrients. He also cycled his butt off. Tom has gone from over 500 pounds to 200 something in just 2 years. The world record for fasting was held by a 27-year- old Scottish man Angus Barbieri who in 1966 fasted for 382 days straight. All he took was a daily multivitamin and yeast. He was under a doctor’s supervision the entire time and lost 293 pounds The definitive book on fasting is called “The Obesity Code” by Dr. Jason Fung of Toronto ON. He has been successfully treating over 1000 patients with diabetes using fasting as a therapy.

14 What to Eat. What Not to Eat. This chart is a good general guide to what to eat and what not to eat. A word about nuts: For the first few weeks skip the nuts. They tend to kick me out of ketosis and I’ve heard reports from many others that they can’t eat them either. As you start losing weight you might try adding them to your diet but be careful. It’s easy to over-eat them.

15 Meal Plan for the Fast Food Junkie If you really dont want to expend any effort at all have the cash to eat out and just want to see immediate results heres a no-fail one-week plan for you. First buy the following from Amazon.com I get no commissions or money for this: • A loaf of Mahlers low-carb bread • One or two bags of Cello Cheese Whisps okay several bags. These are awesome • A bottle of no sugar added ketchup if you like ketchup • A bottle of Braggs apple cider vinegar • A jar of coconut oil Put the bread in the freezer and keep the cheese whisps handy for snacking. Breakfast Every morning toast up 2 slices of Mahlers bread. Slather them with butter. Wrap them in a paper towel and go to McDonalds drive thru. Get 2 of any breakfast bagels you like with extra cheese. bacon egg and cheese sausage egg and cheese steak egg and cheese. Mix it up. Replace the bagel with your toast - put the meat and eggs from both bagels between your toast - and enjoy. If that seems like too much just get one bagel. Also you can get yourself a coffee or tea. Heavy cream is okay. No sugar. Sugar substitutes will probably be okay but your best bet is to stay away from them. Definitely not milk. Half and Half is fine. No potatoes. No pancakes no other starches or sugars. Thats it. Youll be full. Lunch For a drink make yourself a to-go bottle of water or seltzer with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Its refreshing and has been shown to lower insulin levels. For lunch you can do the same trick. Toast up some low-carb bread add mayo and no-sugar-added ketchup if you like. Head to your favorite fast food place and order a burger or two. Extra cheese. Lettuce mayo tomato pickles mushrooms bacon and mustard are all okay. Ask for no ketchup. Also avoid onions. If you like the flavor of onions sprinkle a little onion powder on your toast after you add the ketchup and/or mayo. If youre really hungry stock up on the burgers. More is okay as long as you can fit it in your mouth. No fries or sugar of any kind but extra bacon and cheese please Dinner For dinner take yourself out to a restaurant. Try to be done eating by 7PM and eat nothing else for the rest of the night. Every restaurant offers a salad. Just ask for no croutons and dont get "sweet" dressings like thousand island or French. I like blue cheese personally. Go ahead and have a glass of wine. For reds pinot noir is a good choice. For whites pinot grigio. If you want to have hard alcohol thats fine. Just have one and dont mix in anything with sugar: bourbon on the rocks vodka and lime or rum and diet coke. Here are some of your dinner options: Buffalo Wings. At Chilis you can get "wings over buffalo" or "smoked wings" without sauce.

slide 16:

16 Steak. Most restaurants have steak on the menu. Get the fattier cuts: prime rib ribeye etc. Avoid the lean cuts like filet mignon. Ask for extra butter to melt over it. If you are hungry get a big one. No potatoes though. Just get the steak and perhaps a side veggie like broccoli Brussels sprouts or sauteed spinach. Salmon. What could be better than a nice salmon filet or steak swimming in olive oil or butter with a little lemon wedge maybe a little sauce on the side with sour cream dill and garlic. mmmmm... Shrimp Scampi. Again. shrimp swimming in butter and garlic. Get a double-order Just pass on the pasta. Pork Chops Lamb Shank Beef Short Ribs... these are all good choices. Just make sure you tell them no bread no potatoes no carbs. Most restaurants are accommodating. Remember more fat Eat all of the fat off your meat. Dont cut it away. The Next Morning The next morning wake up and make yourself some coffee. Put 2 mug fulls about 4 cups in a blender with a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil. Add a dash of cinnamon nutmeg vanilla or any other flavoring you want and whiz it all together. Enjoy. The coconut oil will quell your hunger whatever is left of it and you should be able to go a long time without getting hungry. If you are not hungry at lunch time skip it. No worries. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. If that means coconut coffee in the morning and a meal at 3PM so be it. Once you break free of carb addiction you will be able to hear the signals that your body gives you about hunger and satiety. Listen to them. You can trust them.

slide 17:

17 What Happens if I Cheat Falling off the horse happens. It happens to everyone. What happens next depends on how fat-adapted you are. In the beginning before you’ve gone 2 or 3 weeks without carbs you may be starting over at square one. Some people never get fat adapted because they don’t have the patience to go carb free for 3 to 8 weeks. I’m not talking about will power. Keto is easy if you can stay focused. I half-assed keto for years going low-carb for a few days then binging for a couple weeks and repeating the cycle. It made me sicker than I was before. Let’s say you’ve been doing keto for a couple weeks and you decide for whatever reason to eat a slice of pizza. The carbs are going to immediately trigger cravings for more carbs. You’ll start eating anything carby: crackers cookies etc… it just happens. You have no control over it. Your body wants carbs and it takes over. Sound familiar If you do this it could take you a week or two of no carbs to get back to where you were. Your weight will come back and those two weeks will be wasted. However once you’re fat adapted and you do the same thing starting with a slice of pizza and escalating to an entire pint of ice cream. You will wake up in the morning and most likely NOT have carb cravings. Actually I can only attest to MY experiences here. That’s what happened to me. I didn’t have carb cravings but the weight still came back on. It took me a week to get back to my previous weight – after one day. We’re talking 10 pounds in one day However the lack of carb cravings made it EASIER for me to get right back up on the horse and continue on. So rather than worrying about the next time you can have your favorite carby food focus on how good eating keto makes you feel. In our now-closed Facebook group Kassie Ewers famously said “Every time I see someone eating fries or something else I can’t eat I look down and wiggle my toes and think ‘yeah. Toes are better than fries.’” The real goal is to not die of diabetes renal failure heart attack stroke hypertension fatty liver dementia Alzheimer’s or cancer. Those are the real goals. Weight loss and fitness are a natural side-effect of good health. Stay motivated Peruse the Ketogenic Forums. Spread the word about how you have lost weight and reclaimed your health. Save someone else’s life These things will make you so much happier than a pint of ice cream especially when you can make yourself some keto mousse or ice cream and be completely happy with it

18 Testing Food Response Using a Blood Glucose Meter By Richard Morris www.easylocarb.com Should you give up certain foods or sweeteners Well it depends. We all have different glucose responses to identical foods. Blood sugar levels in response to foods are highly individual so the only way to really know is to test yourself by doing a glucose curve using a retail glucometer. Not everyone needs to go to this level of detail but if you find after eating certain foods that you just seem to get hungrier it’s quite possible that you have a specific glycemic response. Glucose Curve You can do a glucose curve with any food. The two questions you want to know are Will this food turn quickly into glucose in my blood and if not will I secrete insulin in response to it anyway. What you will be doing is taking a glucose curve in response to a challenge. That should directly answer the first question and you can kind of extrapolate an answer to the second question. So you want to test far enough away from an event that would otherwise confound the results. Normal people are usually back to a normal glucose level after a normal meal in about 2-3 hrs. A type 2 diabetic can take 4-5. Exercise is also a confounder so give it an hour after mild exercise several after hard exercise. Also when you wake up your body produces hormones that goose your production of glucose. The best time is probably several hours after waking up having skipped breakfast.

slide 19:

19 Take your baseline or T0 So take a baseline measurement – this is your time zero. In my chart below that’s the green line. You don’t need a lot of blood for new style meters as you can see I have my lancet set to only a depth of 5 so I almost don’t feel the strike anymore. I also use the pad of my fingers. That is a lot less painful in my experience than the side of the finger. You just need to insert a fresh test strip and when your meter tells you it is ready for blood you just press your drop of blood to the capillary uptake of the test strip. That will give you the starting glucose value. We’re going to eat our test food and then see how long it takes for our blood glucose to get close to that starting value again. Eat your test food This is the good bit. Now we need to set a timer for 30 mins. I’m going to use my Microsoft Band. When the alarm goes off take a 2nd measurement – this will be your T30.

slide 20:

20 Take a T30 This is just as your first phase insulin response should hit. So this may be top of your glucose response. Meters are only about 20 accurate so if this value is within 20 of the T0 it could still be no glucose response. Which is what non-nutritive sweeteners produce in me. Set your alarm for another 30 mins. Take a T60 Take a 3rd measurement – this will be your T60. If you had some glucose response at T30 then you should be heading back to your baseline under the direction of Insulin releases. If you had no glucose response but you still secreted some insulin Sweetness being recognized by your brain and directing a “just in case” release then you might find at this point that it drops below your baseline. That’s a reactive hypoglycemic response. It implies if you eat a lot of this food and you will be making more insulin than you should and over time that may work against weight loss and developing your insulin sensitivity.

slide 21:

21 Take an hourly reading till you get to baseline Then if you’re not at baseline you can take a few more measurements until you get back to your stasis point – maybe every hour. If you go a little below your baseline that could be an overcorrection of slow acting insulin. I like to keep going till I see a return to baseline but to be honest the accuracy of retail devices is only 20 so 4.6 is within the margin of error. And finally 4 hours later we’re at the baseline again. You can play around with the glucose values to the left of this Glucose Curve to change its shape.

slide 24:

Please Read This Before Starting This is not a series of random foods there is a valid reason behind why these specific foods at a given time How many times have you wanted to take control of your diet but the daunting thoughts of how much you have to erase before you ever have a desire outcome seem to take over You’re not alone. That’s how I felt… You are going to see some food combinations that may seem a bit unconventional but I want you to find the motivation to stick through this for one day. The purpose of this reboot isn’t to necessarily help you lose a lot of weight in 1-day but rather to help your body be in a prime position to transition into the right eating habits It is difficult to start eating well and have it make a difference when your body still has a negative balance of the unhealthy foods in your body. The first step is always to give yourself a clean slate to work with. Although you will likely see and feel some tremendous results with this 24 hour cleanse just note that the magic takes place when you continue to eat an anti-inflammatory diet that allows you to get the most out of your nutrients. This program is a KICKSTART to the way you feel when you give yourself a clean slate to work with.

slide 25:

Purpose of the 1-Day Reboot When you have excess inflammation in your body it can cause intestinal inflammation. This in turn makes it difficult to absorb nutrients and therefore spikes cortisol levels when this happens your metabolism can slow down causing a whole world of problems I’m not a huge believer in taking a bunch of supplements or drugs to fix a problem. The thing is the science is there to prove that just by eating the right foods at the right time during the day can really turn things around. Look this is a free program that I put out there to help as many people as possible. It’s effective but it’s not going to turn around your health for you… you need to take that into your own hands. What this cleanse protocol CAN do for you is this: Give you the clean slate and lowered levels of inflammation that are required to get the most out of your diet After this reboot you will likely be absorbing more nutrients which means your metabolism will rage faster and if you choose the right steps at the end of the program you can make leaps and bounds above what you would otherwise.

slide 26:

Rules That are VERY Important • Review the Entire Program before Starting so that You know what to get from the Store • Try to do about 15 Minutes of Easy Cardio on an empty stomach the day that you do your reboot this mobilizes free fatty acids and helps your body burn a bit more fat • The foods really should be all organic. I know they cost a bit more but it is worth it especially for one day The thing is organic foods don’t cause the inflammatory reaction within our bodies. • You’re going to have to STAY AWAY FROM GLUTEN GRAINS and DAIRY for at least this one day • There is a good chance you’ll feel typical detox symptoms during the reboot but that’s okay. You might get a slight headache you might even get a bit of an upset stomach but that’s your body working overtime to fight inflammatory responses • If you feel dizzy or weak give yourself a bit of honey or blueberries as a first measure of action. • Make Sure You Drink at least 0.75oz of Water per Lb of Bodyweight As with any program if you feel exceptionally dizzy or weak contact a health professional.

How You Transition Out of The Reboot is Critical – PLEASE READ How many times have you done a cleanse and rebounded worse after the cleanse Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen Look as much as I would love to ask you to support what I do and try my full 7-day reboot I really just want to make sure you have success with this program.
