I'm basically one of the success stories and the first picture you see when you go to sixteen eleven dot, plop dot me. And for those who don't know yet, I reverse diabetes lost about eighty pounds. They say seventy using a Kita genyk diet and intermittent fasting and even some extended fasting every once in a while turns out, that's good thing for you. So and they also made a link to to Kito dudes, my other podcast, cool. It's awesome. Do. Yeah. Some very proud of that. And I wanted to share and Scott's cool. And so is talking to us today.

"Fats are a lot of natural fats, but what isn't so good is like the vegetable oils because they are sort of highly processed and very high and make sixes, which are very inflammatory, and they're not really natural products. So you know, I think one of the things that we've done really wrong is that we've told people to replace natural fats with artificial fats, like vegetable oil. So you gotta realize that corn is not oily. So you have to process literally tons of corn to get all of corn oil. And that's not a natural situ. Nation that your body has learned to deal with as opposed to eating Bader. For example, which the human body has been eating for sort of millennials. The body knows how to handle water, knows how to handle cream, knows how to handle olive oil. All of those sort of natural fats are fine, but the artificial fats, have you have to void them? There's just all kinds of health issues that come up with them that people are starting to really recognize that, hey, this was not a good idea is like, so wait, you think that you know, cutting out natural fats and eating a whole lot of artificial fats is good for you. It's like, yeah, put it that way. Maybe it's not such a good idea. So what about we a rep up soon here because in court on for a while and this is fascinating stuff. Some of the oils out there that people are saying are good for you like obviously, olive oil, a whole natural at what about. Coconut oil is that could for you because I've seen some more recent kind of information saying that may not be as good as we think it is. I think coconut oil is fine. I mean, it's it's, you know, there's this, you know, person who came out and said, oh, it's poison. It's like. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard like, you know. There are people on islands in the south civic that eight seventy percent coconut, like their diet was seventy percent coconuts. They're eating a lot of coconut oil and they didn't die. You're calling coconut oil a poison. And here they are eating it breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they're not dying fact. They're super super healthy. And when they migrated those people to New Zealand and put him on a lot of Brad and sugar and all that they all caught fat and they got diabetic. But in fact, when they're eating coconut and fish all day, they were super healthy. Yeah, they had infections and stuff, but they had no diabetes. They had no city the head, no cavities, all this sort of stuff. They're just way healthier from all extent point. So it's like, okay, well, if somebody can eat the diet, seventy percent coconut. Well, having a little bit of coconut oil is not OG is obviously knocking to be that bad for you. So you know those sort of ideas. Again, it's a natural. Fat. People have eating coconut and coconut oil for millennia without problems. How is it now that you figured out in two thousand eighteen that, hey, it was okay for the past two thousand eighteen years, but this year your body can handle coconuts. It's like, okay, that's the dumbest thing. I've ever heard same thing with meat and Bader. It's like, come on. So people have been eating meat and Bader and eggs for sort of, okay, minimum two thousand years. Probably like ten thousand years with the developing diabetes, but ho. Hey, in the last three years, we've figured out that meet causes diabetes. Why didn't Jesus Christ get it like two thousand years ago? Why didn't the heiress thought all get it in the ancient Greece? He was eating meat and stuff. It's like, come on these. These ideas are like ridiculous. Like they, they have no logic..

"So if you measure muscle muscle biopsies and so on, but you can do is you can find that the DNA and the proteins that are necessary for burning less rides increase as you get into this sort of Kita genyk state. So they become more efficient that burning fat, but it takes two weeks. So you'll notice a drop off in your athletic farmers for about two weeks and people call it. The Kito flew. Some people feel tired and so on. And then after that, because now your your muscles and everything are able to burn the fat than it just functions pretty normally, but that's what they call the Kito. Flu can last for a couple of weeks, but the key tones are not used by the muscles by the liver by the heart, everything in the body pretty much uses. Fat directly except for the brain. Yeah. So I've always been skeptical of executives, key tones and it seems to me that if you take an exotic keen tons, it'll have some benefit maybe for your. The energy in your brain or your maybe focus or concentration, but you're not really giving your body any energy boost? No, it's it's your brain that that it would be for the key tones because the key towns are really used by the brain. There are specific circumstances where exhaustiveness key tones might be helpful in general and dodging this key tones as what we're after that is burn fat to get the keystones. That's what's gonna make you lose weight because you're burning fat and getting the keystones not. Oh, hey, here's a whole lot of keystones, but I'm not burning fat to get the keystones. I'm just getting key tones. There are specific circumstances where it may be beneficial. So for example, in type two diabetics. People as glucose goes down, the Kitone should go up, but that sometimes doesn't happen in certain disease states, like type two diabetes glucose goes down Kitone don't go up all of a sudden you have neither glucose anarchy tons and it's like, oh crap. So there are instances that it may be beneficial. But for most people, you really wanna be getting endogenous key tones, not exigent keystones because that's a long, long, endurance events, you know, like a like a triathlon or like we have a fifty hour nonstop touring event within dodges key tons be helpful in something like that. Again, you shouldn't be needing it because the key tones are only used by your brain, their muscles and stuff are not going to use it. So for the altar marathoners, I think a lot of them have gone to Kita, genyk diets, truthfully, because you know you're carrying so much more energy for the muscles in body fat compared to glucose in compared to trigger. You want yourself using the fat burning system, not the sugar burning system because you just have way more fat and it's a much more efficient storage form of food energy. But the exhaustion is key tones might only be beneficial if you're endogenous key tones, go glove. So if you're like some, you know, poorly control type, two diabetic who's doing ultra-marathon. Maybe there might be a reason to do that, but it'd be hard to see kind of situation. Yeah, interesting. So generally, we wanna eat more fat. We wanna eat less often. And we wanted intermittently fast. Yeah, the fats are another thing. I mean, it's it's not necessarily the fat, but it's the processing that's really, really dangerous. 'cause you know, when people talk about Kita, genyk diets and no car pie, fat or else. The h f they mostly talk about natural fats. So saturated..

"That's pure garbage. 'cause if you don't eat for twenty four hours, what happens like you've done it? I'm sure I've done it lots of times like, do I get like seizures because I don't have like carbohydrates from brain know your body simply uses it produces the sugar or produces the key tones. So the key tones is a way for you to check that your body is sort of in this fat burning mode. So it's like a remember, body's gotta be either sugar or fat. It's it's sort of like these hybrid cars, right? Yeah. The run on electric city or gas, you don't do both. So if you're in this trigger mode, then you have no key tones. If you're in this fat burning mode than you have heat tones, he heater genyk diets. Are affected because you can measure these key tones and know that you're in this sort of fat burning zone doesn't necessarily mean you lose weight if you eat like excessive fact than you're not gonna necessarily lose weight because you're putting it a lot of fat and you're burning fat, but you're not losing weight because of that. Right. So in the end, it's it's, it's about the balance of that. So it's a way to know that you're in this sort of fat burning zone where that fat comes from, could be body. Fat could be dietary fight. If you're taking Lauda dietary fat thing, you're not going to burn the body fight. You may not lose way which is why people say, you know, you know, they sometimes talk about these fat bombs and it's like it's fine. If if you're using those to replace if you're adding it, then it's not gonna. Do you any good that is if you say you have a steak, you know certain portion of steak or you have steak with a lot of butter which is gonna make you lose weight. Well, adding butter doesn't make you lose weight. Right? If you add butter but take out something else, it may if you take out at butter and take out the bread char, that's probably going to be good, but you know, steak versus state plus a whole lot of butter. The steak is better because you're not adding all that dietary fat, which the body can burn just the same as it can body fat, but it won't burn the body fat because your your, you've got all that dietary thought. Interesting. I didn't realize that your body didn't use the key tones, but you're just you're brain dead bodies, burning the fat, but your brain is burned the Kito yet that's pretty much it. So if you look at so body fat is composed of triglycerides which is three, three, five acids and eclipse Rawl. So the fatty acids can be used the reckless Bhai most things. And this is what causes the Kito flu for example. So if you were to be an athletic person, like, do a lot of workouts and you went from sort of normal fifty percent carbohydrate diet to a key. Genyk die with almost zero carbs. Your performance would suffer for about two weeks because your body switches from using mostly sugar to fat, and it doesn't have the machinery to burn the body fight efficiently..

"And how is that going to help me yet? People say that they, oh, yeah, you have to have to go have a bowl of fruit loops. This icon that's like the worst thing you could possibly do. Why don't you know Shen there were supposed to have hurry. Breakfast is so ingrained and it's okay if you want to if you want to. It's okay, but you don't have to. That's the point if and the other point is that you have to avoid like the super process stuff, right? That stuff is obviously bad for you. So eating fruit loops obviously bad for you. Chapin crunch. That's right. I'll make an exception for captain for those things are obviously bad for you. And yet people will say, well, it's better to eat something. Then nothing. It's like, no, it's better to eat nothing. Then your body is going to burn the body fat, which is what it was trying to do before you shove that captain crunch in your mouth, and you know, this is the whole, this is the whole problem. We have advice that's completely nonsensical like that. It's like, okay, I, if if you don't eat what's going to happen, well, I don't eat breakfast most days. You pretty much get used to it and that's it. And then when it's lunchtime you have a nice lunch in the problem with breakfast is not so much that breakfast is fat, like if you eat eggs and bacon and stuff is fine. The problem is that most of us are in a hurry in the morning, so it tends to be highly processed carbohydrates. So pop tarts and captain crunch and you know stuff that doesn't take a lot of time doesn't make a lot of mass easy. It's, you know, necessarily have to refrigerate it. So we're talking about process, grains and sugar. That's what you want. That's the worst for you clearly. So if you're gonna eat like vegetable omelette, you know, with fettuccine and stuff. Yeah, that's great. Who's gonna make that sort of every morning before they go to work? I mean, not very many people, and that's why they don't. So it's not intrinsically bad. And if you're not hungry, why would you wanna eat your body's already telling you, hey, you don't need to eat, you're doing fine. And then we shove a couple doughnuts in our mouth thinking that that's what's that's because the the nutritionist says, I have to eat breakfast. You know, let's get back to fasting. So you know if I were to say, okay, I'm done eating at seven, and then I don't eat again until after my workout. It maybe nine or ten in the morning. Is there also a benefit to saying, you know, Kate in once a week. I'm gonna go for twenty four hours or once every twenty two weeks. I'm gonna go for thirty six hours. I mean what? What extra benefit does a longer fast give us. Yes. So the longer fast is very interesting because a lot of these benefits are not sort of late base manifests. There's obviously weight loss in reversal of type two diabetes. That is, if you don't eat your blood sugar down, but there's also something called a Tofte g which is gaining sort of a lot of interest. The two thousand sixteen Nobel prize for medicine was given to one of the pioneers of its research. But a Tofte g. is is it's a breakdown of proteins that the body does when you don't eat. So it's probably starts round sixteen hours in twenty four thirty two hours this where sort of maximizes and everybody thinks how breaking down protein that's really bad, but it's not. Our body actually has too much protein. If you're overweight, it's estimated that you have anywhere between twenty to fifty percent more protein. That's not muscle that's like skin and connective tissue, and you have diseases, for example, like Alzheimer. There's all this excess protein that's sorta gumming up your brain. So what the body does is it targets sort of most useless of protein and it breaks it down for energy. And then when the time comes to eat again, because growth hormone is high, it will rebuild, but it's not gonna rebuild protein that it doesn't need is going to rebuild protein that is necessary..

"And then as soon as you start to eat, what happens is that growth hormone is very high. So then you're going to rebuild that muscle. Because remember when you're building muscle, you get these microscopic tears in your muscle, your body, rebuild it to be stronger. But if you're growth hormone goes up, then you're going to be able to rebuild better. So in fact, was happening is that you're able to train harder and recover faster. So that's a huge, huge advantage when you're talking about, you know, alita lettuce because the difference between sort of being a hall of Famer baseball and the minor league career minor leaguer is like inches. So that little bit of extra, you know, training hit the that little bit of extra can really make a huge difference in the. The other thing, this is especially true for certain things. So we work with some elite athletes like baseball players, and you know, mixed martial arts and stuff is that concentration goes up significantly when you're fasting. So because of this general activation, people have noticed that their concentration is much better. So again, if you're able to focus able to zero in on the pitches in your noradrenaline up, then you're gonna have that little extra zip to, but that you know all where you're on it that focuses because of the uploading of those hormones like adrenaline and it's, it's those extra hormones. And again, it's just like if you think about it in the wild you have, you can either be, you know, eating six times a day and your that lie in that just eight or you could be the hungry wolf. Like which one do you wanna be? Well, if you're fighting you wanna be the hungry wolf because your body is actually flooding your system with energy. Now. With a lead athletics, half, there's there's a lot of you know nuances because of course, sometimes they're trying to cram like massive amounts of calories in because there's working out all the time. So then you have to design a program that's designed for people specifically leg. You're trying to get like ten thousand calories into somebody's body. It's not always easy if you're eating once a day kind of thing. So there are sort of nuances, but for the general person who's not at that crazy sort of high athletes, this is a sort of simple hack to make people. You know. Give people in edge in terms of their training in terms of the recovery. So why not take it like it's free. Is there for you to take like if there's nothing unnatural is not steroids, it's not like, you know, banned substances, it's it's the natural way to hack your body to be better. I not kind of explains why like for me, I've always gravitated toward working out on an empty stomach. First thing in the morning, I get better results. I feel better. I'm not hungry when wake up. So an and I have this urge to train. You know what I mean? It seems like that's that way. In fact, that's actually the most physiologic because if you, if when you wake up, so in in the there's actually something called the counter regulatory hormones search that happens round four. A m, though your body actually knows. It's gonna be waking up in a few hours. So it actually increases these hormones to push through, goes out into your systems was actually feeding the body. To get you ready for the day. So that's why you're, you know, all these levels are actually a little bit higher. It's not a huge affect, but it is a little bit higher in the morning. Let's lucasville Ohio, higher north Allen LA, higher, sympathetic tones, low higher. That's the reason that you're not that hungry because when you're activating, you know, if you think about the sympathetic nervous system, the fighter flight, you know, if you're if you're looking at a lion, you're not like, whoa, I'm really hungry. I haven't eaten a few hours, right? You're like, oh my God, but hungers lasting you think about so because your body's actually got a mild sort of fight or flight response. You're actually the least hungry at sort of eight AM in the morning, which is very interesting because that's also the time of day were where for most people you've gone the longest without eating. So that's really interesting because you've gone twelve hours fourteen hours without eating yet you have no hunger..

"So if you've been on the fence about whether muscle stem works, trust me, it does. So don't hesitate in longer or check out the power. It's most of the people who listen to this are familiar with vesting, intermittent fasting and Kito, but probably don't know some of the science behind it or also some of the like best practices. So let's talk about intermittent fasting. What does that mean? That's basically what we've been talking about, right? Where you have these windows of nod eating versus eating, right? Yeah. So there's no strict definition of intermittent fasting. So what happened in the sixties? The reason fasting sort of fell out of favor for from a medical standpoint is that they used to do these crazy crazy fast where they take people who are not even overweight and they'd fast them for like sixty days straightens nothing to eat for sixty days. That's pretty tough if you're pretty thin ready. So if you're massively overweight, sure you could do it because you have the stores of fat to go sixty days without eating that they. Take a guy who. You know, five foot ten and a hundred and fifty pounds, and. To go sixty days without eating. Not a very good idea. People must have problem with or spiritual journey, right? He that's different thing, right? It's a whole different. It's all about context, right? So anyway, so they did this and that's what they called fasting back then. And then they test them and some people were not doing that well because they were actually becoming malnourished and that's the problem. So this intermittent fasting is more you're talking about doing fasting for short periods of time. So anywhere from sort of twelve to twenty four thirty six hours. So clearly not in the same league as the old studies from the sixties of thirty sixty days. We're talking like thirty hours not thirty days, so it's much shorter but doing it on a more regular basis. So doing remember studies from the sixties and stuff, they're doing it for different reasons. At the time they're talking about world hunger and starvation. And you know mouth Doosan principles of world hunger. So there they wanted to see what happened when people actually starve. Not fasting from from a therapeutic standpoint. So it's totally different situation. But what we're talking about now is applying sort of short term fast, sort of, you know, sixteen hours twenty four hours on a regular basis, three times a week, you know, six times a week, that kind of thing in order to achieve specific goal which is reversal of type two diabetes or weight loss. For example, those are the biggest goals, but there are others. There are lots of health benefits and what we're finding now, which is super, super interesting is that there's all kinds of benefits to fasting that people hadn't realized before. So it's, you know, it's just a very interesting field that's sort of changing all the time. So if you're someone listening to this, who's you know, generally, you know, fit, you know, not overweight likes to train, you know three to five times a week. What would be the benefits for intermittent fasting. So there's a few in terms of training. So the one of the big things in terms of elite athletes, these days is something called trading in the fast state in it's it's something that is if you understand the physiology can see the reasoning. So if you do, what people do is that they don't eat for twenty four hours. So they say, for example, they might eat breakfast than than not eat until you know for twenty four hours than they do the training. So they've already fastened for twenty four hours, then they go on their workout and then they eat. So why would you do this? So if you figure about what's happening insulin is going down. So as fast in goes down, but nor Drennan, sympathetic, nervous system go up, growth hormone goes up. So at that point you're actually flooding your body with energy, so you actually can work out harder on a lot of people have noticed this. It's not. Possible fact people do their fasting in exercise, and then they get comments like, whoa, you know, I could go, you know, so so much without even trying today..

"That's gonna make you lose weight. On the other hand, if you like to eat breakfast, you like to eat eggs and sorta that think go ahead but keep in mind that don't. You can't eat all the time. You have to take a break. You have to fast. That's what reckless that's the very word itself tells you what you're supposed to be doing and if you do that sort of on a regular basis, remember that people didn't watch with the aid in the seventies really because there wasn't that much easy. It's it's actually striking whenever you if you ever look at like school photos from the seventies and stuff, you know that that one guy who is overweight, got made fun of mercilessly because he's only one guy. Now you take a look and it's like, oh yeah, but the third of the class looks like him, right? So who's gonna make fun of which is great. They're not picking on him anymore. But on the other hand, not so great because there's a lot of childhood obesity that. It's the same thing. People think we need to eat all the time. So that's that's where intermittent fasting comes in. Because if you wanna lose weight, all you have to do shift the balance the other way and do more fasting than feeding and then you're gonna force your body to burn food energy. Let me ask you questions. If let's say you just ate at seven in the morning and then didn't touch anything again until dinnertime some PM. Would you consider that to be a whole feet like a twelve hour feeding window? Or is there enough time like the breakfast affect wears off in the insulin effect, whereas off after four hours or something like that, then four hours. So asking for half a day midday, you certainly could. So if you eat two meals a day for breakfast dinner, you'd at seven AM by eleven AM or so twelve noon. For example, your body is going to go into sort of fasting mode because it's that that energy has lasted a few hours Suming. You're not going. Crazy on your breakfast, but that energy has started. You've rented off insulin levels are gonna fall, then you're going to use it. Now you skip lunch on, you don't eat until seven. So you've got seven hours of fasting in the middle of the day there, and then you eat. I love because that's kind of what I do. And I've, I've had some people say, well, you know, you're kind of your feeding windows too long. Everyone seems to be trying to cram all their food into like five hours between one and six or between twelve and you know, maybe six hours twelve and six, and that just doesn't feel natural to me either. You know what I mean? Yeah, absolutely. And that there's nothing wrong with that. I mean, I think that there's like as long as you understand what you're doing and you're getting the results that you want, then there's nothing wrong. I tend to work with sort of the the very severe end of the scale. So people who are sort of type two diabetes and massively overweight, and so on that to the point that it's a health issue, therefore, I wind up prescribing much longer fasten periods just because these people are high risk of other problems like heart attacks strokes. Right, right. It's no surprise that. I like to train hard, but also like. Recover fast. And occasionally I get a small muscle tear or I have excessive inflammation..

"If you're only if your insolence high because you're eating all these sort of diet food. Foods and all this stuff, and you're only taking vows in calories. Your body says, while I still need to store that Audie fat. Therefore, what I need to do is is shutdown my metabolism and therefore that's when you start to see the metabolic rate go down. People feel cold. People feel tired and is because they never changed the hormonal balance in their body. That's the key to weight loss. It's not calories. Calories is just like talking about money. It's like, oh, if you get sick with cancer and therefore you have a lot of medical bills. You can go bankrupt, right, but it's that's the cause of your disease. It's not money in money out, right. Oh, stop spending money. It's like, that's, that's that's a useless advice. Just the same way that say, oh, it's all about calories in its useless advice. You have to know how it is that the body changes. The calories in calories out. So for example, if you think about a big Coca-Cola, big gulp, you take a big gulp of Coca Cola has a lot of calories. It has a lot of sugar and compare that to an equal calorie portion of a steak. Now you can say, okay, well, it's all about calories. Well, if you drink that coke, you're not full. If you eat that stake, you are full. So what's going to happen while if you rigidly count all your calories all the time you might do. Okay. But you're going to be hungry day after day after day because you're drinking coke instead of eating steak, but the same calories. But the difference is that you know your insulin spiking way up. So you're still hungry after that Coca Cola. And whereas with the steak, you know, you've got all that protein all that fat. That's making you full. You're not gonna be full. So it's a lot easier to lose weight, eating steak or solid. Or any other sort of real food compared to, you know, sugary beverages, for example, right? But but the calories are not the issue. The issue is that you're gonna wanna eat more if you're just taking a bunch of coke because you're gonna be, you're going to be like, that's not dinner. A big gulp is not dinner, but you can. It is for some people, but you won't be full right? You'll feel like you haven't eaten dinner making the same on this point. Can we look at the standard American diet, the sad diet, and kind make this same comparison to say, why is the standard American diet causing people to get fat? And what would the opposite look like for for listeners saying, you know what? I get this, but you know, my patterns are due to eat this type of food every day. What simple changes can we make kind of flip the switch? Yeah. So I think that the main problem, like sort of there's a lot of issues, but the number one problem with weight gain is that people eat all the time. This is not because they thought it was a great idea. It's because this is a sort of message that's pushed on us by dietitians by doctors. And unfortunately, a lot of the the industry like food industry in drug industry. Pays a lot of these doctors and other health professionals. You know, they tell them, oh yeah, you should tell your patients to eat ten times a day. It's like, came up with that. It's it's stupid like it sounds really stupid. Eat all the time to lose weight is like, it sounds really stupid because it is really stupid. There's no getting around that. And there's no studies that said that eating ten times a day is good for you. In fact, in the history of humanity has ever done that because stupid. So if you look at the nineteen seventies, for example, the difference between the nineteen seventies and the two thousands is that in the nineteen seventies the average person eight three times a day breakfast, lunch dinner, eight at seven. In.

"Levels fall, that's a signal for your body. Start burning the the stored food energy, which has fat. That's all it is. So if you he insulin high all the time, you're basically telling your body to store fat all the time, and that's, that's all it is. But besides the input of actually, you know, monitoring what you put into your gullet. Is there any way to detect insulin levels? Subjectively, they fluctuate quite a bit. So measuring levels are not that useful. I've measured them for different reasons, but they fluctuate quite a bit. So it's not as useful as you might think it is more useful as a sort of theoretical understanding of why something like fasting is useful. So fast saying, for example, is a way to lower insulin levels. We don't eat insulin falls, which is what it's supposed to do, but other hormones go up and this is what everybody forgets about. So when you fast, you actually activate sir. Other hormonal system. So sympathetic nervous system enor- adrenaline and growth hormone and cortisol. So cortisol is does go up with fasting. So if MR does that happen in your opinion, I guess you studied opinion, why do those? What is fasting? Kind of stimulate the sympathetic because this is part of genetically, you know, you want food, you need food, and so there's a little threat there, right? Yeah. So it's, it's basically so the sympathetic nervous system is part of the fight or flight response, and it's general activation of body as cortisol and what these sympathetic nervous system in cortisol and other hormones. Like our Trenton do is that they push goes from stores into the blood, so they all raise blood glucose. And that's the point. So if you're not eating so remember that when you don't eat insulin falls in these counter regulatory hormones. So the counter regulatory hormones are so named because they run counter of insulin. Insulin goes down. These ones go up and they all go up as a group. So sympathetic nervous system in essentially what it does is activate your body's everybody thinks that fasting slows down your body. It doesn't it activates body, and that's a natural mechanism that we've known about for years because you're activating the sympathetic nervous system. You're increasing noradrenaline and you're increasing growth hormone growth hormone is very interesting because it's like, why would you wanna grow if there's no nutrients. And the point is that when you start eating again than growth hormone, is there so that you can rebuild the proteins that you need for sort of demaim health. So even though people worry about all, you're going to break down muscle. It's like, no, but you're gonna re grow that muscle or protein or whatever you need at that point that you start eating again. So it's a natural see-saw. So insulin goes off these or MOS. Go down. Insulin goes down. These hormones go up in its this changing. What you're doing with the fast thing is changing the entire hormonal sort of. Environment of the body is not about restricting calories because restricting calories, you can restrict calories and keep your insulin very high. For example, if you take a lot of stevia or something like that. Or diet drinks, there's no calories, but insulin still goes up with some of these artifices sweeteners. So if you drink sort of twenty diet cokes day and you think, oh, I'm doing so good. It's like you're not. You're still going up which is telling your body to store fat..

"So any natural always always biking insulin. If you eat. Actually anything. So some are worse. I mean, the implication definitely is that some foods are worse than others that is some food spike incident a lot more than others. So if you're to eat, say steak versus say, Brad, the Brad is gonna split your insulin much higher than the steak. The steak will to some degree. And the implication is simply that some foods are more fattening than others, and it's like, okay, that's not that you know revolutionary. State nece. What does it mean when you say something has a low glycemic index? Is that mean advice index means box about blood glucose. So if you eat food than your blood glucose goes opera doesn't, and it really only refers to carbohydrates because blood glucose does not go up with protein or fats, so really only applies to the carbohydrate portion of your meal. So if you however related to insulin. There's a relationship between how higher glucose goes up and how higher insulin goes up. But it doesn't tell you anything about the sort of protein and fats. Two thirds of your macro nutrients are not being accounted for by a glycemic index only accounts for the carbohydrate, part of things for the carbohydrate, part of things it does reasonably. But if you're going to more sort of two thirds of the problem is not a very comprehensive sort of dietary plan, and that's the that's where things get get, la- Harry people focused on the glucose, but it wasn't the blood glucose. Your body response to things like insulin hormones, like now, there are other hormones involved too, but from a diet standpoint, it's mostly insulin. Insulin is a nutrient sensor and it goes up when we eat and tells the body to store food energy. That's what body fide is it stored food energy. So if you're let your insulin.

"So Jason, thanks so much for joining me today. Preciado your time. Thanks for having these great to be here. Yeah, no doubt, no doubt. Can you tell us a little bit about your background and you know. Early years in what you're kind of influences were how you got interested in this field? Yeah. So I may kidney specialist by training, so that means I deal with a lot of type two diabetes because that's sort of the biggest cause of kidney disease. And I didn't really have much interest in nutrition for most of my medical training actually, and it's most doctors don't get much training in terms of nutrition or weight loss or anything like that. But what's happened really in the last few years is that we've had this big pity epidemic, which is led to this OB type two diabetes epidemic. And so it's really infiltrate sort of all of what we do in terms of chronic disease, metabolic disease in that kind of thing. That's really where I became very interested in how to lose weight because that's ultimately how to get people better from their Z's. So if you have kidney disease which is caused by type two diabetes. Which is caused by obesity than you need to reverse the obesity because that's the root cause of everything treating the kidney disease at the end simply isn't going to cut it. So that's where I became very interested. And so because I didn't know much about it, I had to sort of start and just look at what causes obesity. And of course, when you start to read it, you realize that a lot of what people talk about is simply nonsense, oh, this whole calories in calories out thing, it's complete nonsense. The body has no calorie receptors. You know what is important is sort of what causes you to eat more, which is calories or burn more, which is calories though. And you know, we eat more because we're hungry, for example, and you can't decide to be less hungry. You can't decide for your body to burn more calories. So focusing in on the calories as very sighted because it's really just the mechanism and not the cause of the obesity in you can. Think about in terms of money. So for example, if you say poverty, what causes poverty? Well, if you spend more money than you take in than you're going to be poor and it's like it's as if I was saying that's the, that's the solution to everything people one in versus money out than anybody who doesn't believe me doesn't believe, you know, is money denier it's like, well, that's stupid, right? That's just the mechanism of how you get poverty similar with calories. That's how you become overweight is because too many calories going it, but tells you nothing about why that is the case. So you know, then it comes back down to what is causing it. And the body is really run by hormones. And the main hormone from a dietary standpoint is insulin. Insulin is a hormone that goes up when we eat and basically tells your body to store body fat, that's job. So if you have too much insulin up when you eat carbohydrates and. Things that can vote to center. Yes. Oh, carbohydrates, but also protein. So the only thing that doesn't raise insulin is actually pure fat. So if you drink all voile for example, right. If you eat something like an egg which has protein than insulin will still go up your sugar. Blood sugar will not go up, but you're your insulin Bill. So insulin is essentially a nutrient sensor except for pure fat, but natural food is not like nobody normally goes around eating a stick of butter sort of thing. Well, there is a little bit of a bit of that. Yeah. But you don't typically carry a bottle of olive oil with you? Chuck. Yeah. Just a chug it for dinner like, oh, I had a Cup of all for dinner..

"It's hard to know if some of that was just pregnancy stuff slash, you know, breast cancer. But in any case, I found myself weighing fifty pounds more than I wanted to weigh. And so I was there talking to my colleges and he asked, you know, is there anything else you're concerned about? And so I said, well, yeah, I've been working really hard to lose weight and I'm, you know, I'm trying really hard not to eat and Siri and sugar. And all this stuff, and I'm having a hard time with it. And he actually recommended book that completely changed everything for me called the obesity code by Dr Jason Fung's, and he is a doctor out of Toronto specializing in late stage renal failure. And so people with diabetes, and he has found that most weight gain is a metabolic issue, you know, at something going on hormone only with insulin. And so my in just telling me that and saying, he's very trim guy, and his wife is urgent and also very slender. And he was telling me that they read this book and have been embracing it. And so what it is is intermittent fasting. And I think that's getting like some press now and so people are learning to be aware of it. But basically I read the book and like we already talked about, I adore my own colleges and I felt like Martin, I know. Eateries. So yeah, somebody run it and it really resonated with me and it felt like the missing link to this process of trying to lose this late in kinda regain some control over my health and my body.
