The Secrets of Wellness With Dr. Jeffrey Rediger
"Welcome to episode two hundred fifty five of live happy. Now I'm your host Paula Phelps. And I'm happy to have you back here again with us this week. This is a time when all of us are thinking a lot about healing and wellbeing. We have a lot of questions about wellness and today's guest is uniquely qualified to talk about that. Dr. Jeffrey Redder is on the Faculty of Harvard Medical School and his medical director of Mclean Hospital southeast adult psychiatric programs. He's a board certified psychiatrist with a Masters in Divinity from Princeton theological seminary and in two thousand fifteen he walked onto a tek stage and proposed a revolutionary idea to an audience of doctors. He challenged them to join him and create an a new kind of medicine built on hope and possibility rather than focusing on sickness and disease. His new book cured. The life-changing science of spontaneous healing provides a fascinating look into healing and how changing our beliefs about ourselves can change our outcomes. Let's hear what he has to say. Jeffrey thank you so much for joining us today on live happy. Now Glenn Beer well. We really wanted to talk to you because you have written a fascinating book and it looks at how people with illnesses. That were allegedly incurable. Were somehow spontaneously healed and I found this book so fascinating it really difficult to put it down and I wanted to know how you got started on this research. To begin with in. Two Thousand and two and oncology nurse at mass general in. Boston came to me and said that she had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and she wanted to help her son about this. And so then she called me from a healing center saying that she was seeing some amazing recoveries and she alleged look into it and that time. I was a new medical director new faculty personnel harbored. I had just graduated from residency. Not that long ago the year before and I said No. I didn't think anything likely was going on there and refused but Nikki was persistent. She began having people. Call me from around the country and elsewhere saying that they had medical evidence for their recovery and did I want to hear their stories. I continued to say no for a while but letters were coming in and as I began to look at some of the stuff. That's being sent to me overtime. In spite of my resistance and my skepticism I began to become confused. Frankly because it looked like something in at least a few of these stories was going on and so long short of it is. I did begin researching the stories and that's been seventeen years now so things have gone a long way since then and how hard it sounds like. It really was difficult to reconcile what you were seeing with your medical education. That's very true. It was confusing to see stories coming in and having lab tests and by APPS results come in with cheers from cancer that I knew very well from my medical training were possible and so what I did was established three criteria and said that I wouldn't even look at the person story or listen to their story unless it really met these criteria so that I buy cherry was the person that had to have genuinely incurable illness. According to all the we currently understand number two they had to have medically indisputable evidence for accurate diagnosis and clear evidence for recovery and then number three there needed to not be any complicating factors such as an experimental medication or anything else that could potentially explain how the better so that helped me begin separating things out because certainly a lot of the story is a scheming and the data that was pouring in it was hard to know what really was going on because you know person can think that they got better but if they were also getting some kinds of chemotherapy and had certain kinds of diagnoses wasn't clear what was happening and so. I tried to just make the criteria really clear for the sake of efficiency and so I could figure out what's going on. And how many cases you say that you studied so this point of seventeen years. I've gone into over one hundred cases. It takes a long time to go into each case to separate out which of the cases that are genuine incurable and then to see if there is really good medical evidence to make sure there's not other complicating factors. Once you get through that level that removes a lot of cases and then from there to go deep into their lives and try to understand what are the factors that are associated that recovery takes a lot of work and so these cases are much more common than the research literature says. I've yet to give a talk where I'm not approached by someone afterwards at least one person who says either you need to talk to this patient where you need to talk to my aunt new talk to my cousin and most of the cases in company. I have not had time to go into this just because I have a job and responsibilities. So yeah how do you fit this research in with the fact that you do have a job as an RA small dog? How do you do all this well? This has been a very personal hashing for me at has grown over the years. I think I've always been driven by questions. And a stories raised a lot of questions for me and so it became something that I have spent a lot of early mornings on a lot of late nights and weekends over time and it's changed the way I think about a lot of things both as a human being and as a physician Woohoo or some of the commonalities that you found in the cases that you've been researching so feared I talk about the four pillars of healing and wellbeing and. I tried to tell stories that illustrate really well how these factors played a role in people's lives and I tried to choose stories from my research that illustrated really well how this works for people so the first pillar is nutrition. Nutrition is a big part of most people stories. Actually and it's not a one size fits all it's not like everyone became vegetarian or everyone followed the Atkins Diet or something like that. It's really a unique journey for each person. About what helped them feel better and feel their best and we all come from different parts of the world with our ancestors and that sort of thing and so I think different diets weren't better for different people. Some people went completely vegetarian. Other people chose a more ketosis diet. But what's true? Is that in nearly all of these diets? The commonalities were very real whether it's one type of nutritional plan or another almost. Everyone eliminated processed foods. They eliminated the vast majority of sugar foods from their diet. And also enriched flowers so they really began eating much more plant. Based Diet by enlarge. A number of people did eat meat but they tended to eat meat. That one person talk about eating animals had been happy when they were alive. Not with not with stress Hormones grass-fed so they get the healthier fats and knock on full of chemicals and so even though the diets looked different on the surface underneath there is a lot of similarity so that's efficient. The second pillar is that you need to heal your immune system so one of the really exciting things. That's just starting to happen. In medicine is that we're starting to realize that we've missed the real story about illness for decades as doctors. We are trained in body parts. If you're a cardiologist you studied the heart if you're a psychiatrist he studied the brain if you're a gastroenterologist he studied a GI system the gastrointestinal system excetera. But what we now are learning. And what these people with such remarkable recoveries have shown me with such clarity is that illness doesn't exist in these body. Parts as much as in the chronic inflammation that's created by our diets and lifestyles. And so if you want to heal your immune system then you need to lower the chronic inflammation in your body. That's really interesting as especially right now with people being concerned about the krona viruses and other things where they talk about. I need to jack up my immune system. I need to boost it up and no insane. I need to reduce inflammation. Yes but show. Chronic inflammation is immune system gone awry and is attacking your body for example. If you're causing little micro cuts in your endovascular system because of the kinds of food and sugar. You're ingesting constantly into your body. Then your immune system goes into repair mode constantly trying to repair all these little micro vascular cuts and injuries and not only. Are you expanding a lot of energy for your immune system to do that? You also are setting up. This scarring cycle in your endothelium. That is over time going to create hardening of the arteries so. It's not really a cholesterol problem than deeper level is it's an inflammation problem and the cholesterol is just a symptom of deeper chronic inflammation. And so we had this amazing immune system with all these brilliant cells and cell subtypes that want to do their job crisply and efficiently. But you have to give them the proper conditions so that they can do that and so I tell people to address the nutrition to avoid toxins to knock over. Medicate to flush lymphatic system regularly with lots of water to spend time with people. You love. Who Make you laugh? Because we know that laughter and positive authentic emotions are great for your immune system and to make sure you get plenty of rest. A lot of the things are things are moms told US growing up. She just kind of present it differently and didn't realize that she was giving. Us medical advice asks right. It's very true because your mom probably knew some common sense things that were more about seeing the forest for the trees in terms of what creates vital immune systems then what we were thinking about for a long time when we are just looking at the individual body parts. So it's not a diabetes problem. It's not a high blood pressure problem. It's not a cancer problem. It's not our problem or
Trendy diets may not be sustainable for long-term cardiovascular health
"This morning he was in the American heart association says eating healthy is good for your heart health but how healthy are those trendy diets you know like the keto when the intermittent fasting which is so popular right now CBS's doctor tearing a ruler tell CBS this morning it depends on what your goals are so a lot of patients a patient of mine ask about the keto diet and it's very popular it's popular primarily for weight loss in it can induce a pretty rapid weight loss over two to six months the issue is is it sustainable and the problem is when you're really limiting yourself to less than fifty grams of carbs which is like one slice of bread or one apple we find that over time it's really not for a lot of people and when you look out one to two years any of facts that a house on either wait for blood pressure blood sugar seem to be similar to other low calorie or low fat diets and the other issues we really don't have a lot of long term research to prove either the safety of the keto diet or any sort of hard but we were just looking at the graphic seems up some downside right so higher cholesterol exactly so because you're eating ninety percent fat a lot of people choose saturated fats so things like coconut oil butter bacon red meat and that can drive up your LDL which is your bad cholesterol yeah in addition you may be depleted of things like magnesium or selenium which is a mineral and that could be pro arisen back in fact there was a study this past fall that show that individuals who ate the keto diet was associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation which is an irregular heart rhythm right and then because you're not eating a lot of vegetables fruits and lagoons you're really not getting those anti oxidants and the fiber that we know is so would you advise patients then so I do have that sort of wristband of a discussion with them and try to tease out well why are you doing us if it's really just for a short term kickstart weight loss that might be okay but then at that six month mark you probably want to transition to a more healthier pattern of eating is something that's sustainable that's always yeah yeah the internment the internment of intermittent fasting diet I know a lot of people on it swear by it really like it Vladimir do TA yeah yeah my father yes your dad is also a lot of people do it and how does that affect your heart so again the science isn't there a lot of the studies have been in animals and there really haven't been long term studies but what we know is that it does seem to kind of reset the body a little bit when you have that time where you're not eating that fasting period and that can allow the body to kind of clear out toxins it can regulate blood pressure and heart rate and blood sugar and cholesterol in the anti inflammatory there do seem to be the potential for benefits are there no houses we don't really you know again because I'm really study that long term but you're sexually inducing a state of ketosis similar to the keto diet because you're allowing your body to break down fat as you all know I'm certain times there's different types right there's alternate day fasting there's sort of a fasting for time restricted feeding where you eat only for six or eight hours during the day and then you don't eat how is your dad also a cardiologists liking it I I he likes it I couldn't do it is very hard for me to skip breakfast for example noting but a lot of people really do swear by it and talked and really says plant based diet to the ones that are the very best for your overall

How do you know when you're in a fasted state?
"We have a a question from amy and the subject is physical signs when in a fasted state. Amy Says Hello. I have just started listening to your podcasts. Recently on my daily commute to and from work I've been doing it for about three weeks now so far I love it. I have a bad relationship with food and this is really helped me realize that I'm truly. He's not going to starve to death. I don't need to eat as often or as much as I thought I did. My question is how do you know when you're NFL. Did State are there any physical signs to look forward to no. I understand it usually takes about twelve hours to reach the fasted state but curious if there are any actual signs or symptoms to let me I know thanks so much have a great day. Yes so this was a really interesting question because when I was thinking about it I realized that I guess there's technically Mickley gingy thinkers technically difference between like the fasted state and being in Ketosis. Well I mean you can be in Ketosis not in the fast and state if you're like eating foods that put you you know your body's making key towns from but if you're not eating and you're in Ketosis that's from fasting but I feel like a you could be because when I was thinking about like. What is the fastest state I guess? Technically it's when you're not running off of food in your digestive track so you're running off of body fat stores key tones in. I guess you're you could be in a fasted state and not being ketosis if you're still depleting glycogen stores. Yeah Yeah so you don't. Yeah so I think you don't have to be in. Ketosis is to be the fastest. Now that when you think about it like that because I'd never really thought about it and question maybe think about it. So but as far ars like typical signs in such I mean that's why I was thinking about a tube because we often do the science of Ketosis but I was like well technically might not all all be you know completely that could be other things as well but I feel like a lot of subjective stuff that people may or may not experience and I was also thinking thinking like there's not really any way of measuring it because we can't really say. Oh you could measure blood. You can't measure like blood sugar levels you can measure keystones but like we decided you can eat producing ketones. John's and be fed. So there's not really like blood biomarker you could measure. There's no way to know if there's food still paying processed. I you know a certain part of your digestive tract so I guess it's more just objective. Signs people tend to experience a sense of mental clarity. People experience the Kito breath which can smell like acetone or different smells different people. What difference would you say Gen? Yeah I think you're right with that. That's assange that your body is fat adapted that you're you're able to run on stored fat for fuel but you know the fasted state just means that you're not running on the foods you're not the the fence state means you're running on the foods that you consumed so once you're done with all the energy from those foods consumed like right that moment like that meal that would be when you'd be in the feds. I mean in the fasted state and in the fasted state your body's GonNa Shift fuel sources to sources sir already on hand like it could be fat. It could be your glycogen stores. You could be in Ketosis. Maybe you're not there yet but yeah once you're someone one who's been intermittent fasting for a while you can feel that shift when your body switches over to Ketosis
Choose The Best Diet For You
"Start with the Diet that consistently gets the highest marks when I say Mediterranean Diet does anything come to mind and olive oil olive oil good and more. So here's the low down Sam's GonNa read us these descriptions of these diets as described arrived by US news. And here's how they talk about the Mediterranean Diet. I will read it for you. This diet emphasizes eating fruits veggies whole grains grains beans nuts looms olive oil and flavorful herbs and spices fish and seafood at least a couple of times a week and poultry eggs cheese cheese and yogurt in moderation while saving suites and red meat for special occasions. Top it off with a splash of red wine. If you want and remember to stay physically physically active and you're set now. Traditionally the Mediterranean diet is followed by some of the most long lived populations out there and these regions are called blue who's zones they're five. Blue Zone populations identified to date. These are the people around the world who most routinely live to be one hundred and don't get chronic disease only five have been identified thus far and two of them are in Mediterranean countries. One in equally agrees one in Sardinia Italy and they both have the dietary pattern we just described and and both of these dietary patterns are high in fat. But it's good fat. Net would sort of be the signature feature of traditional Mediterranean diets. Wholesome foods sensible combination but because of the emphasis assist on olives and olive oil nuts and seeds and of Kado the total fat content tends to actually be higher than the typical American Diet? So who might right this diet. Be Good for him. Well if you don't want to count calories and your goal is overall good health. You may want to give the Mediterranean Diet. A try would make sure you buy good olive oil. And here's a hint. The good stuff often has a best buy or a harvest date on the back of the bottle in some of our other episodes. Talk healthy fats. A lot more. But let's now talk about the Dash Diet. Have you ever heard of. It never heard of it. I don't think anyone's heard of it. Yeah but it's actually one of the most research diets of all time. What is it the Dash Diet which stands for dietary approaches to stop hypertension? This this promoted by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute to do exactly that stop or prevent high blood pressure emphasizes the food you've always been told to eat. Fruits veggies whole grains lean protein and low fat dairy which are high in blood pressure. deflating nutrients like potassium calcium protein and fiber. So what do you notice about this diet. It sounds a whole lot like the Mediterranean Diet. And that's for good reason so here is take away number. Two good diets tend to have a lot in common. People should take comfort in the fact that when we describe good diets they sound more alike than different. That's absolutely true. So the building. Blocks Dash and Mediterranean are fruits veggies whole grains they also allow for moderate amounts of eggs poultry and dairy and both recommend taking it easy the on sweets sugary drinks and red meat and one more thing following a dash type diet is linked to decrease risk of heart disease and strokes and band. David Katz Says Dashes Pretty Easy to follow. It's not all that different from the foods. Most Americans are eating right now. It's just it's the typical American in Diet completely cleaned up so everything will be familiar. I think that's helpful. It's a much less radical shifts. One of the reasons I tend to give high scores to the DASH. Sti- is yeah. It's a good diet for sure. There are others that I think might be better. But one of the things we're scoring every year is the practicality which goes back to our takeaway number one the best diet for you is the one you'll actually follow as you read these. Do these seem like diets to you or do they just Kinda seem like I dunno strategists. Like I'm used to diets being like a spaghetti noodle diet her like the Tapioca pudding minute. Grapefruit Diet like really really rigid and really really limited. These seem much more wide open than I would think. Diets usually are so does that. Make it more appealing Ellington totally. I would do these now. Let's talk about a diet that everybody seems to be talking about the key to diet the Kito Dodi it emphasizes weight loss through fat burning the goal is to quickly lose weight and ultimately feel better with fewer cravings while boosting your mood mental focus and energy according to Kito proponents by slashing the carbs you consume and instead filling up on fats you safely inter state of Ketosis which sounds like hypnosis who is doing this and what does ketosis really mean. Well when your body doesn't have any carbohydrates left have to burn for fuel instead it starts to burn fat and when that happens your body is an estate of Ketosis. It sounds good right because it can lead to some really quick weight loss but US news actually ranks Kito near the bottom of its list for overall best diets. We heard from Jeff Gear. He followed Kito Diet for about nine weeks and during that time. He says he put mayonnaise on. Everything feels inappropriate to say anything with like that much mayonnaise cleanse but so you know there it was and then he hit a snag and so she's like all right. Well here's how Thanksgiving's GonNa go. I'm not going to go gigantic but like you know we'll do up some fried chicken and we'll do some hasselback potatoes `tatoes and then like the next day it was like did every single ounce of the lake eighteen pounds that I lost contact and then I was just like well damn like I if I can never deviate from really prescriptive maybe kind of scary medical diet than what does it look like going forward because I nine weeks or something is intense but like the next sixty years you can probably tell. The Jeff is not really a fan of Kito anymore. It was just too extreme for him. Him and David Katz Agrees Amen Jeff. David's first strike against Kito. He says it's too hard to stick to and strike number two. David says it just doesn't doesn't check a lot of the boxes of a healthy diet. This diet is at odds with human health that tends to be a very low fiber diet. That's bad for the guest on track. We we simply don't know that this diet is compatible with human health across the lifespan. And well you know to me that sounds like a game of Russian Roulette. It may go your way it may not researchers are looking into whether a diet like Kito might be good for some people like those at medical risk due to their weight and Kito does rank in Chi- on the US news list for best fast weight loss diets. But David says that's not necessarily a good goal. I think much of the focus. Sadly is still on losing weight and and all too often. It's on losing weight fast and one of the things that I routinely point out to anybody who's willing to listen to me. Is that a cocaine. Binge in in lieu of food will result in rapid weight. Loss About of cholera will result in rapid weight loss. So you know where we ever got the idea that losing weight fast. I meant anything about finding health. I have no idea but it's wrong and David's final. Knock on Kito has to do with the environment people. Well who are on the KETO diet tend to eat a lot of meat and red meat. Production requires a lot of land and water. And that's because you need a lot of it to grow the grains to feed the livestock and that's your takeaway number three if you want to align your eating habits with a healthy planet think about the environmental footprint of your diet. I don't think Alison we can talk about Diet and health and not factor in the health of the planet. I really don't so that's got to factor into the dietary discussion. It's hard not to bump into somebody on the Keto Diet and I. I think that's sort of double bookkeeping while I can do whatever diet I want for short term weight loss. Oh yeah I really care about climate change well then no. You've got to connect those dots and this also goes for other diets that tend to have a lot of red meat. Like the Paleo Diet. Paleo diets are based on a simple premise. If the caveman didn't eat eat it. You shouldn't either so long to refined sugar dairy legumes and grains and hello to meat fish poultry fruits and veggies. The idea is that by eliminating modern era foods like highly processed carbs dairy. You can avoid or control quote diseases of civilisation like type. Two diabetes is and heart disease and likely lose weight to Can I tell you my biggest question with this caveman diet. Why would I wanna live like a caveman? Nothing about my life is Caveman Caveman Ish. Yeah I'll pass simple premise but hard to practice because everything that caveman aid is extinct. We we saw to that so you know there there. There are no stone-age foods available. The best you can do is approximated. Two major problems here. I A lot of people wave the Palo banners and excuse to eat Bacon pepperoni Indian hamburgers. There was no Palaeolithic Pepperoni. So if you want to eat variety joints either indicated mandate exact right so variety of wild plants and game. If you want to eat not only the wild animals you catch. I think that's probably a healthy diet. Frankly but the big problem with this is you need a lot of space to raise those animals if you're gonNA eat all those animals and I did the calculation for the current population of the Earth at about seven point eight billion and it would require fifteen times the surface area of the planet. What's yeah a seriously so basically just can't be done? No dorothy were not in the stone age anymore. So who might diet such as Paleo and Kito appeal to well people who like the challenge challenge of this strict set of rules and who like a high protein diet that usually includes a lot of meat. Even if it's not exactly what the Caveman eight

Does Plant Based Keto Diets Work?
"For anyone listening the whole idea about adding fat to your plant based i it seems very foreign i mean here's the thing i've been doing this for a number years instead of hosting it out there so that people can see what i do for it to be an option in it's amazing how much push back i get from both the plant as community and the low carb community and it's for different reasons but it's fine i have enough friends in my life that i don't i don't need anymore but your furniture thanks but so you know people think that you can't do it so the low carb people think that you you can't get enough eighteen if you're eating a plant based low carb diet and honestly there are a lot of options and we can talk about those in a second for that from the fats the in point i mean for me it was a matter of there's three macronutrients fat protein and sugar and carbohydrates and if your limiting one of those injuries one or the other and for me i found through experimentation what my optimal amount of protein per day is if i'm going to maintain gene you know i work really hard long hours and i also run a lot like i found what amount of protein i need to sort of maintain my composition and then the fat the things that i added in from a fat standpoint are avocados nuts and seeds i do use some olive oil l. olives cheese flax seeds things like those which for the most part our whole real foods so you know what my they may look like what a meal for may look like is there these beans called lucchini beans that are have zero net carbs they have a ton of fiber or yeah i can use blacks way beans or tofu or hamper some other things like that i also so i can't use the things that have written in them because i wanted genetic lottery that way so i'll have those is my primary protein source and then i'll have a bunch of leafy green vegetables i'll have salad with some olive oil on it i'll put some nuts and seeds on it i eat a ton of broccoli and asparagus and cauliflower and you know put guacamole on everything and hot sauce because everything is better with hot sauce and nutritional he's you know so my diet's it's pretty simple it's pretty straightforward it's mostly wholefood i mean some people argue whether olive oil is a whole fruit or not but we're not going to today i mean olive oil battle far too many times right and at the end of the day every single one of my modifiable markers improved to the optimal range so you know for me and for many of my patients this is way that sustainable and you know i have no objective reason to think that there are downsides in my ANC which is a measure of my control varies between you know four point seven and five point three which is almost unheard of the goal for type one diabetic is six point five five to seven i mean that's amazing i totally agree with you when i when i went into my vegan pita experiment i'll be fully honest full disclosure i was very anti i heat oh diet on forever very anti i like you and i like eat them but it was very much like very not i was hoping he was going to be l. two weeks i was like this is gonna blow up my LDL and then over that span of time in july i was like wait a second to actually read the data read about polyunsaturated fatty acids read about actually talk to different lipid allergists and everyone's like you're limited profile probably won't change at all and didn't if anything even mildly grooved with zero it just felt significance but there was some tiny in prevention so i think that year idea that it can be helpful is actually very clear to me now i know i know tation in ascribe for my each and i think it's i think it's very interesting you know way to eat and have the benefits of the first things i want to start out with you guys a. b. six you guys can go into how do you go into joe says and how you mateen thing he does is just kind of like the basics going into kito animal martha before we do that danielle can i say that i wanna i wanna thank you for doing what you did because it was pretty brave and unusual i think we're all aware this ridiculous diet or detention more thing that happens out there that's frankly just annoying as hell and it was great to see you try this and admit that you went into it with a not such an open mind and then admit that you really had a better experience than you thought you were the product of that has been tremendous i mean first of all it's brought the three of us together in a way that none of us expected it's been fun and we'll talk about all that later but it was really awesome that you did another carries like wait i've been talking about this for five years old sudden danielle opens her mouth and like the whole vegan kita i thank you i think it's for me at like i think that i've just been i tell you over the past two years i've realized how complex obesity isn't free conceicao kind of explain understand how key johnson precipitate but for anyone listening it works i mean maybe doesn't work for everyone in mountain state that everything everyone but for me like i had really great and i think that it's something that once you experience it you can't unknow it it's really interesting experience it works for people that want to try it so yes most people have been asking these kind of the basics you could just kind of describe how do you go into toes says on the whole you know there's like a lot of myths about you can't have any carbs where i kind of to sell zavos society to is it is significant when you're in ketosis that you know i used to think you had to be a special kind of stupid to miss a meal because all i could think of that was wanting to eat all the time and when i'm in ketosis which is now most of the time i have to remind myself to eat like i'll operate all day and then not eat until you get home from like this i have actually not looked into this there's something about the key johnson actually suppress like what is the what is the actual mechanism of up yeah need maybe ethan you can talk more about this there's different theories on it i don't know that anybody fully understands how it impacts the different hunger hormones i think there's sort of a theory behind ended at you know if food was in scarcity and we were hungry all the time we would not work communal species than we would not get along very well if we got you know we're perpetually angry until we found food but i i don't think anybody fully understands the mechanisms how it impacts the hunger hormones specifically but those questions are being asked yeah there have been so star if you start at the beginning there are definitely there've been randomized controlled trials to look at appetite and society and every other measure of hunger her absence of hunger and i think there's no doubt that on a proper peter jennings diet that hunger is reduced versus other diets i think people believe that i don't think we understand the anisim and i think as carrie alluded there are lots of studies looking at potentially the role of grellet or other hormones that affect appetite might personal favourite theories it has something to do with insulin but i'm sure that's not all of it and to be just circle back to your question before about whether or not it's key tones itself or its carbohydrate restriction or something else we don't know it could be any of that MR all of them it's interesting i notice a definite difference i think up to save nutrition show individualized but i do think about on some level is because i think there's some people who can eat and i normally do i normally might like regular diets like gazillion grab carbohydrates damn fine but i am kind of always hungry i've never experienced the feeling of being like not hungry at all until it was just it's like i've never felt like shocking i think that's the most common thing that i hear from people who started for the first time is that there is i feel like they're never hungry and you know some people think it's just you're eating all this fat and fat has various at satiated and again there are like one hundred fifty theories and it needs to be worked out why but i think it's pretty clear that the the flip difference i mean i don't think it's the fact that you're eating because like i said i can have my last meal at six o'clock at night and i can go until six o'clock the next night in have operated the whole day it's not like drinking butter for breakfast and that's the reason why i'm not
The Healing Mechanisms of Intermittent Fasting
"The metabolic right even if you overeat on to have the longer eating window of at least six hours you want to have at least she meals because we're trying to get that metabolism up instead of you know sticking to that same day in day out you know I talk about how I do one meal a day but it's really important to understand that I do not and I never have kept it super consistent day to day there was a brief period of time in two thousand fifteen when I was almost goal that I was to about a two hour eating window every day but it was only for ten weeks and other than that I tend to be one of those people that every now and then I'll have you know two meals a day and so I don't keep it to consistent over time my body naturally varies how much I eat and so I don't get into the Rut of it being the same and I did I think that anything that's too consistent over time can cause your body to adapt our body likes to find a rhythm and stick to it and then not release the weight you gotTa shake get
A Top Keto Researcher Shares Her Findings
"I think you'd be on the podcast today. Anger Anthony Yes. Yes you are Maybe you say give people information just a little bit of your background currently what you do I'm a research associate at the University in South Florida and the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology I worked with Dr Dominic Douglas. You know we have a lab here where we we study metabolism and how it pertains to the development and potential therapeutic interventions for a variety of diseases. primary focus for me would be cancer Um so he's been cancer. Metabolism things like Akita Genetic Diet or other non talk ways the target metabolism could be a useful advent to standard of Care Therapy for cancer better level so looked at eight non toxic metabolic targeted therapies or other these jazz seizure disorders and also near genetic disorders including some rare disorders like Kabuki Syndrome which is something that we've recently started studying so we have a wide array of interest kind of all related to how we can optimized metabolism to prevent and treat the gotta before we dive in deeper and I think what you do on a day-to-day basis just curious as far as your background and what got you interested in this field in the first place sure so I was always interested in. I was even a a young on girl. I was very much like a tomboy. I would always be playing outside like you know catch lizards grasshoppers than I was just so interested in those dot dot kind of so biology plus always really interested in me to the point where I never really thought about doing anything else. I probably from the time that I knew being scientists was an option. I was decidedly going to be a scientist and I always really loved the idea of contributing something new to be in a wealth of knowledge that was out there so just reading scientific textbooks and thinking about how literally each each launch of their represents an advise some fine history that had an interesting question or idea and tested dot hypothesis and came up with something new that had never been known before and that really drew me the being though after to High School I went to college with that in mind I studied biochemistry molecular biology at Hendrix College which is a small college in Arkansas which is where I grew up had a really great experience there where the the call all just very intent on experiential learning and so I was actually able to work in a neuro science research lab for three years at Undergrad and able to do really really interesting research and actually present at them national conferences even while I was an Undergrad which kind of furthered heard my you know solidified my interest in going on to graduate school and being scientists so then I decided to do my PhD after Undergrad and I came down to University of South Florida for or a PhD program in Biomedical Sciences and started looking around four labs to join though when you start a PhD program you have to identify who's GonNa be your nature Professor and the project that you're going to work work are gone for your dissertation project and that's what I'm doctor you know he was a new faculty member here. USF This is about ten years ago or so and he was doing a load of work at that time for the Navy looking at mitigation negation strategies to combat a unique type of seizure that manifest when you breathe high oxygen concentrations at depth so such a navy diver might experience and that led him down the rabbit hole to booking at he does this which of course the Ketogenic Diet had been used clinically for a hundred years actually to treat epilepsy mets refractory to education and so he was doing work in that field and at the time has kind of stumbled across this idea about a ton of research on at the time by the thought that maybe toes Hud's them properties that could be anticancer and that it was at the time I was looking for a research lab and I met Dr Casino and you described these ideas to me and it just sounded really fascinating in part because it seems so novel. It's funny now when I think about at that time the idea of diet impacting something as serious as cancer. It seemed surprising to me because now it seems so obvious that something so impactful the Diet would have major impacts on something like cancer but at the time it was very enterprising and I I'd had some personal experience with with cancer and and my father had had brain tumors starting when he was very young he had them even had them irradiated was pretty pretty intense radiation therapy which saved his life allowed him to live past you know his back speculation into his you know into relatively old age and and allowed me to to come around so that radiation saved his life but 'cause very long lasting negative effects and that he had cognitive physical decline over time and you know this was at a time we're a lot better now at using targeted radiation to eliminate much of those off target effects but at the time it was kind of more intense whole brain irradiation type therapy and I think I was just very intrigued by this idea that maybe there's here's the non toxic ways that we can before standard of care therapies so that we can protect our healthy tissue while putting more stress on the tumor and I I love that idea about potentially using diet do that and and I think that that really kind of caught my cut my eye. I and I decided to join Donovan and start up the Kantha research program and his love so now still split your serve research focuses. This is in in everybody all in on this sort of like metabolic therapies or or how do you split up. Yeah I would say our whole lab is it's pretty dynamic and their interest we kind of have people have more specific areas adventures expertise I I really enjoy and tend to focus on the cancer work in our lab dominate the classically trained neuroscientists and daas more his wheelhouse but we all kind of are familiar with the whole territory and contribute in other ways. I think that is also really important part to this kind kind of science as being multidisciplinary because we understand and learn a lot from each other though we're lucky about the epilepsy field has a very long history three of studying diet and metabolism and not do these days and there's a lot that we can learn from each other those are those and cancer biology for example or people studying nearer nearer developmental disorders can look at things like epilepsy and learn from I'm definitely we have people who kind of tend to focus on certain things were all also contributing to most of the projects that come out of the lab okay. How many resources do you guys have the right. Now we have about Devon fulltime not fall and then we have a number of students who come in and we'll volunteer or work as a student researcher for some period of time here and there so I would say I'm sure on yours and the answer is not enough of course always okay okay so one of the things you mentioned before was that you sort of have this transition in how you're thinking about cancer therapies and in that you know how could nutrition affect any of this nine eleven obviously. How can it not so? What did you learn that brought you from one mindset to the other. I think just the learning how impactful nutrition is on everything that happens in our bodies. I mean it is I would say one of the main them Eli but but our body is receiving it it tell their internal system a lot about the outside world.
Dr. Anthony Gustin's New Book on Ketosis
"You guys. We have a huge tree. Today in the treat is a bunch of mature. You're of my book that came out today. Answers which you can build on Amazon right Chris Yeah so Can you answer live today. Were super excited about it. It's something we've been working on so almost a year now. Since we started working well I started putting it together a year to two and a half years ago I started compiling all this stuff then and so maybe maybe before we cranking. Maybe they'll background on the process. Ituna so yeah man yeah a couple of years ago two years ago. I I was a wrote a lot of the content initially just kind of cobbled together through conversation to how it patients questions. I was getting online information that I knew was sort of controversial controversial or just a lot of questions about then like okay. There needs to be just like somebody put a definitive opinions on us because even though there's a lot of basic KITA genetic books or people are talking about. Here's what Kito says. Here's a grocery list. Here's a thousand recipes in the back of the book yeah. There's they're out there. They're great. They're necessary but after fifteen of these like the same information was being put up but I was still getting all the same questions a lot of nuance huge diet sort of confusing people really definitive opinions on it whether they're doctors or scientists or just plain recipe bloggers whatever in no-one's right no one's wrong law these cases is he's like some of this stuff like we obviously agree in a lot and it's because we sort of look at the science. I look at testimonials and there's enough people are responding to things second and then sort of formulate an opinion after that sort of conclusive answer to a lot of the questions that we get you ran the information for a long time for another Kito websites brushing onboard after came aboard the choppy draft of a book and the Katie. I don't know what the hell to do with this place answering all that stuff so basically reformulated to like what what was sort of a standard book in the first place that sort of read front to back needs to be edited and so it was kind of a a shitty rough draft but you know had had a lot of bones there you went through and talked about okay what is out there now for. Keita books like what information people have. What what problem are we trying to solve and the biggest thing was that we I mean of no mainstream right now? Get like ten messages day people asking me all these questions that I think thank you know either. I'm answering repeatedly. We've covered in podcast before we've written articles about. We have done videos about it etc but it wasn't like one definitive place where a lot of this stuff was put with the references with research behind it and so Krista and then we started working together and he flipped out a lot of things on there. I especially like a lot of research. I understand it but I'm not really great like on the spot like you are. Oh study about this or whatever it's like you put in a lot of the research. Go back a lot of stuff up. I wasn't wrong too many things which was which was great having you here but then sort of format it in a way that's really non-conventional for a book so took it and you can still read it front to back and so when you open it up and you go through it reads tobacco like a like a lot of other books out there but it's sort of unique in the way where we split this into instead of just chapter headings like fifteen twenty chapters instead we split it into tuners questions nations and so instead of just saying hey here's for example. It's like you know what is this and then we give you an answer later in the book. It's like what we well. You know how many carbs or can I do. Kita while breastfeeding what happens ahead of weight loss plateau and we answer all these things so we put all those questions in back in the index so that way you can flip to the index and go okay. What what am I struggling with. Questions are half the breaking down by topic so each topic sort of the chapter against they'll re through the bathrooms. You can still do that way but you can go to each question. If you want that page in understand your answer is sort of like if you're just asking me or crests stuff on instagram with a lot of people the already yeah yeah and I think the goal to is that we wanted to be different with this book differ from what a lot is available out there. I mean talk about how you know. It's either seems like it's either either recipe book. When it comes to Kito or it's an information book that is a little bit too scientific too hard to understand and a little bit too hard to navigate to find what you're looking four and we wanted to put this book together in a format where people can read this book Fronta back and you could be somebody who's completely novice and know nothing about the q. Jack die read it from front to back and learn everything that you need to know or you can be somebody that's just like. Hey I am looking starts Kito Diet. I've heard about it but I have a lot of questions. I'm sick of searching the Internet in having to go to multiple different websites to find the information and then see even have to wonder if it's credible or not so here we just put everything in one place so that you can just search for your answers answers and find them and I think it's going to be this format just going to be really applicable to people you know. You don't have to be somebody that has to understand how to read research to to get through this. You know we've taken the information from the research. We've taken information from working with clients that we've worked with in the past and stuff we've experimented with on ourselves and we've put all this information in this book to make it easy to understand so. I think this format is going to be something. That's going to resonate a lot more people so we're really excited to get your feedback on it. We hope we hope that we hope itself. Oh for that's the goal yeah and also just to be clear one thing that we haven't really put a lot of emphasis to you in the marketing materials around this book is that we are not taking being a dollar from this book. We're reinvesting everything back into content back into product development. That's like that's like we want. This community thrived before when I keep answering questions. We're not doing this as a way to make money and we're doing this just because we thought it needed to exist and yeah. There's there's no like personal gain that we're getting from this. Everything is going back into investing into groins community yeah. I think that brings up a good point for why we really even talked about making this resource when we first started it's about a year ago. Oh you brought this project to me and started talking to me about in a boat in Thailand. We were yeah. I won't forget it. We were sitting on a boat in Thailand in I was living in Tampa at the time I'm still and I just started working for perfect. Kito and Anthony just said you know you. WanNa have been working on. This book really wanted to get a finished. You WanNa come on and help. Writers like you can just move out to Austin and we can sit down. We can chat a buy one get working on finishing it and then I moved out like a month later it to Austin and we started working on it and now about a month later. It's it's coming out nearly a year to the day yeah. I think it was late September. I think it was right. which is crazy yeah yeah yeah? I mean we did it in a pretty short period of time a lot of work yeah. It has yeah the first four months of it. the first four months of ratings book doc were a little intense in towards the end of last year and beginning of this year. 'cause you know because when we sat down we start talking about writing it. We were like we wanna make a resource. At first it was like we want to make this resource for our our customers people who are buying perfect products so they can you know better know how to all the Diet in conjunction with these products because we want people to get the most out of this. Kiddo die and that comes from. I'm not just taking the products but also following the Diet. We haven't had conversations about like. Should we just split this blog arco do videos about how are we. GonNa use. Ah Someone who gave you the manuscript was like eighty thousand words and like that a little more. We'll ask when you ended it. Oh yeah yeah so then. We decided like you know what they're no books like this out there. We need to chop it up. He's at Washington islands of AH the Gulf Thailand we were in by. We're like okay so we just did that. Christopher add thirty thousand words do it was one hundred and ten thousand words and yet it's long two hundred and four pages of of tax but it's not that it's two hundred sixty eight questions questions hundred four pages so you know roughly two pages per answer.
Is the Keto Diet Healthy?
"Your your brain and your body runs off. Glucose for fuel tank when you're starving and when you're intentionally fasting even your body converts key tones and you can burn those for fuel so it's a survival mechanism <hes> okay that your body as an able to do. It's an adaptation okay so putting your body and it. Qatada state state to state of Ketosis right funding. Your body in a state of Ketosis is a is a survival mechanism but that happens to who have worked for epilepsy so why does it work now and how does it work you eat a good preponderance of your calories from fat like like seventy percent of your calories from fat and then maybe twenty five from protein and five percent from carbohydrates like down to twenty grams of carbohydrates tweets per day like a sixth of what we say minimum mean person earlier but when you look at okay eliminating things that have natural carbohydrates in them they're going to be plant foods server one and milk products so grains vegetables legumes fruit an even. That's in that sense seats. Oh Yeah getting down to twenty grams a day three times. I mean it's like five grams of carbohydrate per meal. So what is this your body well it. It forces it to make the key ten so you're burning the key tones. <hes> I gotTA survive right right. Wow so at the calories can can still be up there because you're eating so much fat you can still get a high calorie load. Alex out of it. Okay is there any long-term <unk> is there can you do. Kito long-term could use to see that well and I know in the short term illness short-term. You've got weight loss particularly when compared with a low fat diet or just a healthy Mediterranean diet it there's improvements in blood sugar for type two diabetes but in the long-term as you're saying Britney I it's just hard for people to follow hollow and that difference in weight between say the groups that were on Kito in the groups that weren't that difference ms men mole overtime okay so again like take your three months versus a couple of years and I know that there are passionate followers that will that will pool me and say wrong. I've this is my life lifestyle and I've done it for for ten. Yeah exactly you know it's probably but probably the average person based on the environment. They're in it makes it very difficult to sustain sustain. Where you're you're finding a way to only have that low carbs yeah and and I look at I'm a very evidence based practitioner so <hes> if you look at the studies will what research says well. They don't really have populations of people on long-term ketogenic diets to to find out and you're certainly I'm not going to have a a subject group or study group because you're not supplying them food for fifteen years right <hes> so it's also reported really <hes> and funds were as with all these other diets often. It's looking at people's intake getting three dietary recall or having them complete a food frequency easy questionnaire and it's what they say that they're eating how accurate it is whether they're right on it or not.

Hey, brain stuck Lauren Bogle bomb here for many of us, humans our body size and shape are things influx from one month to the next depending on a host of factors both within and without our control our genes might be a little tighter or a little looser. Our question of the day is when we lose weight where does that lost weight go? The short answer is that our bodies convert molecules in fat cells to usable forms of energy, thus shrinking the cells. But getting this to happen isn't just about sweating to the oldies. Or however, you prefer to work out understanding how our bodies perform this tummy, trimming trick requires a little more detail. We know that weight loss. Hinges on burning calories. Calories are the measure of the potential energy in the food. You eat in the form of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. If our bodies were cars energy would be the gas. That keeps everything running lounging in front of the television is like cruising the strip while sprinting around to track is more like drag racing at maximum speeds in short more. Or work means more energy is needed. The body uses. Some of the calories we ingest to digest that very food. Once the food is broken down into its respective parts of carbohydrates fats and proteins it. Either uses the remaining energy or converts to fat for storage in fat cells, and as doctor who fans no fat cells live in adipose tissue, which basically acts like an internal gestation storing away fuel reserves to lose weight. You must burn more calories or energy than you consume to start using up that fuel reserve, essentially, if you're not ingesting enough calories to fuel your additional work. Your body must pull from fat stores. According to the law of conservation of mass matter is neither created nor destroyed, but it may alter its form through chemical reaction, essentially that tells us that while we lose mass in our bodies by burning fat. It doesn't just disappear. It's simply changes for him. When we eat the glucose and other sugars harnessed from carbohydrates are the first things our bodies use as fuel stores liver stores the glucose in the form of glycogen and releases it into the bloodstream as necessary to keep our bodies trucking long think of your bloodstream as an interconnected conveyor belt that takes necessary nutrients to the body parts that need them. Once that glucose runs out fat takes over harnessing energy by burning fat is referred to as ketosis. It works like this hormones, regulating our blood sugar levels, activate an enzyme in the blood vessels of fat tissue called lie pace, lie ignites, fat cells to release macromolecules called triglycerides, which are what makes fat cells bet triglycerides are made up of glycerin and three fatty acid chains when they received the signal from lipase to exit the fat cells the triglycerides break up into their respective components and enter the bloodstream for us the liver snatches at the glacier, all to break it down for energy, and some of the fatty acids moved to the muscles that can farm them for energy. As well. The action of breaking down triglycerides into usable energy is called like policies. Once the components of the glycerin and fatty acids are inside our muscle or liver cells. Organ hills called my Takao Andrea shuffle in reshuffle. There's compounds to harness their potential energy sorta like a furnace burns would the might Akande breakdown and recombine those components of our fat cells and produce heat water carbon dioxide and Denison triphosphate or ATP ATP halls potential energy in its molecular bonds for us when we exercise like inner cellular carb loading the water exits our bodies as sweat and urine, and we exhaled carbon dioxide. Now that the body has relieved at cells of some glycerin and fatty acids, the cells get smaller and sew sell buy-sell, our body shape changes.

"Press save you can fit in into an envelope so you don't have to ship it with anything more than a standard manner right how can you produce this at the lowest cost possible with only roberts if you want something that is really at mass scale and small and affordable you have to a lot of it wasn't easy to come up with a design it looks super easy but there's a lot of thinking behind it i want to make a point about how unusual this is security is typically been something that you sell to the enterprise right and maybe an virus and pc's or something like that but certainly security hardware that they didn't really think about usability the way that they proliferated was through direct sales you'd have a sales team they sell it and now design is really important because you're attracting the users to these kind of products actually very different securities always been this kind of like nerdy back office thing and they really turned this into this very consumer design exercise i wanted the keys to work everywhere yeah to be everywhere and to solve a global universal problem the name originates from the word you ketosis well you know the phrase ubiquitous in the context of ubiquitous computing came from mark weiser who wrote a seminal paper about it and i think it was a early nineties late eighties early nineties and he had a lot of interesting ideas but some of them included this notion that computing should be so ubiquitous and everywhere that if you left a conference room and you left your pencil behind you don't feel like oh man i left my pencil behind knows actually kind of interesting because the way it came about with through mobile phones where if we left it behind we're actually more attached to them but the concept of it being pervasive in everywhere was very much a strong idea he actually said that the most powerful technologies are those that disappear yes so computing is now ubiquitous and security also have to be his and sort of disappear to alter what i want i want to harvard or trust on any competing device of pacman i actually rely on my own like you know i rely on my driver's license i rely on my credit cards and cetera so we will put you keep functionality into.

"But one thing that i think is really important to be mindful of i talked to my followers about this is that kitone production in the body is not a function of adding more fat you can eat zero fat and be in deep ketosis you know by way of fasting or starvation which isn't fun but them production isn't a function of adding more fat to the diet it's really a function of reducing insulin by not eating you know many carbohydrates so when i'm thinking about like the fact that i'm eating it's really making sure that i get you know whatever omega threes that i need over the course of the day and really not eating you know the unhealthy oils today in the modern food environment sort of like walking across a vietnamese field you know like in the in the sixties like you don't restaurants now are like cooking with them with these really unhealthy oils and they're pretty much everywhere anytime you eat at a restaurant it's it's danger zone taking a risk yeah let's just call it what it is garbage fats i will call the garbage fats all right so you know what i love this statement and maybe i i don't know if i came up with this i think i did i don't know what avocados make everything better all right so we're going to put that out there whatever it is next better omelettes better of burgers better if we got we can make a great chocolate mousse right blended up with some high quality chocolate man listen avocados are a one of my favorite foods so that's another genius food fortunately there's so many good things that are also good for us.

"What other things can come into play here and when you're talking about clerk restriction i would guess the more caloric restriction the more advanced the ketosis that happens our what's that relationship there yeah absolutely that's a great point is what up conohere new says you know what is the range of key towse's and you know one thing i forgot to say is they're hopefully some people say well why does your body bother making these other chemicals why would you you burn fat to make another chemical that to useless uh which would be a great question so what happened and you can think years and years ago when we didn't have meals every single day you had to go out in scavenger maybe you killed an animal anew eight and he may have to wait a few days right so what happens in that scenario is your body doesn't have sugar because your body burns at up fairly quickly and your brain is really reliant on sugar so the sugar is gone from the system then you need something to feed your brain in the brain camp metab allies fat so what happens is your body converts the fat into these kitone buys at feeds a brain so we're really piggyback in office long used biology that we've kind of neglected due to our current ways of living in constant and take a food that if you convert they move away from sugars and start using more fat some of those fats are going to be converted to fuel for your brain right and so your question was what is the range of ketone bodies what's a range of the ski toe so this fat metabolism elevated well the way i like to think of it is in terms of breath acetone because i'm working with a company called level that created device to measure breath acetone breath asked tone is an indication of kyoto sits is actually one of those key tone chemicals ketone bodies.

"So because it's so easy and so readily available it's the go to energy source insulin is what's produced due process the glucose in your bloodstream and that's what takes around the body providing you with energy since glucose is being or as tagged as your most favourable energy source tag down off that's right where what beyond saying like because your body prefers glucose your fats are therefore not needed right because you've got glucose onboard so your fat in your body or any food that you eat gets stored right and even if you're not eating fat you can be eating an excess of of carbohydrates either way that additional energy is stored as fat and that's important for you to know because that is a means by which we survived on a low carb diet you therefore decrease your carbohydrate so low that your body burns through the available glucose and then it's gonna look for okay what's the next most available easiest to process energy molecule in the body and that is key tones now your body goes actually it's almost like a switch where it converts at stop spreading glucose as its main source of energy and it shifts over into burning key tones are using ketones as should say so i kind of like in this to what happens if you have a hybrid car and you were to burn through all of your gas well you actually switch to another tank now or another take another energy source in you would then use the electricity now ketosis refers to a process in your body that helps all of us to survive when were in starvation mode that's primarily i believe that's what most i say i believe that's why most scientists believe our bodies our adept were equipped to survive starvation now we can't survive for very long without sleep and or water but we can survive for quite a while without food the.

"A lot of benefits of taking these exogenous key tones um you know as far as whether or not they actually worked to get you into ketosis yes not only do they put you into a state where you're kitone levels are elevated at one three or even when i've used a kitone esther above seven mila moeller but they can do so without you needing to go into quite as significant a of carbohydrate deprivation or calorie deprivation as you would need to do without having those exogenous ketones around however you can also jackup your kitone levels with these exogenous key tones and not be in a state of calorie deprivation not being assertive carbohydrate deprivation mean that your blood glucose levels are high at the same time it he tones are high and essentially the only benefit that you're getting from them at that point is a little bit of a cognitive boost uh possibly in effect on on decreasing the rate of which telomeres shorten via that launch of the effect live possibly an increased ability of the body to be able to burn ketones and definitely an organic affect like high blood glucose and high blood ketones if you'd like eat a carbohydrate rich meal and also take exogenous key tones you're going to have a lot of different uh a a lot of different forms of fuel on board to burn for energy and i've done this in the past i did it before like a tough modern who was like for can rocket fuel but at the same time it's not the state of kyoto sis that are hunter gatherer ancestors would have been in when hungry eye out forging or hunting and a low in liver glycogen low in muscle glycogen and thus high in key tones because they were burning so much of their own fat for a fuel that high levels of key tones were also being produced thus giving them an alternate source of energy for their diaphragm or their brain or their liver the only way that you can get into that true state.

"Bite into a near like squirt gum like gel into your mouth that like that be a good idea actually for key towns i get you the common at squirts ketones into your mouth that's disturbing reality koa kito scored anyway uh before this digress is key towns exogenous tetons we've that's a horse we've kind of beaten to death on this podcast but um these exogenous ketones so they they don't contrary to popular belief work as a magical weightloss upland the they can help to get you into a higher state of ketosis when you consume an exogenous kitone they they can get you into that state where you're utilizing ketones for cognitive effect or for an energy fact or for an appetite regulating effect but they're not going to necessarily burn fat off the body unless you actually are in a state of calorie deprivation for example know they do help to sustain weight loss by regulating hormones that affect way like you know for example there's this woman called coal assist a keinan or c c k that get gets released by your intestines after you eat and that's responsible for stimulating fat and protein digestion and it inhibits the emptying of the stomach and that reduces appetite to it turns out it's a really good regulator of food intake and it turns out that both the consumption of exogenous key towns as well as being in ketosis can raise levels of c c k meaning eating akito genic diet or consuming exogenous key towns can really help you avoid food cravings so that that's in a one one thing that accidents key tons can actually do an along with just an overall appetite suppression it turns out they may have a little bit of a blood sugar stabilizing effect as well um i've written before about the longevity enhancing effects of exogenous kitone supplementation because of that calorie restriction mimicking effect that we brought up earlier and so there's there's a lot of.

"That's based on the information that comes from the behaviors large in large part here we're talking about who the information comes with from the food we eat that slips these certain genes on or off your one thing that i wrote about this a month or two ago this idea behind ketosis and in this case it we it was like actually using these you know these fancy kitone supplements like exogenous ketones and in the things that are being sold now to actually the induce the state of ketosis and they they found this in a rodent model but i still think it's really interesting um there's this there's this transcription factor called foxo which is like a a protein associated with longevity and what what it turns out to to appear to be the case is that when you consume something like a beta hydroxybutyrate salt or bhp salt or you increase your own production of ketone bodies our what how japan's as you may not do it's called phosphorylation of that protein many it you get increased activation of these foxo proteins or more of them in the cell nucleus and they're directly associated with the with longevity and things like the destruction of free radicals and so it actually looks like there may be whether by inducing ketosis or or taking in key tones a direct effect on longevity genes oh yeah i mean um would take it back even a step further and say imagine uh a cell in an environment that's that's uh right with nutrients all around it in the cell which as a propensity to want to divide the replicate in the cell thanks well jesus' plenty of stuff around your let's let's divide let's replicate that's have fun party everyone uh and that's um you know bats a typical of what happens with people in general but uh you know animals in general i guess people in specific imagine that same cell now without any nutrients around it thinking oh my god what are we going to do here is uh is that there's not enough food for me let alone for two will be so i definitely i'm not going to divide right now back what i'm going to do is unwilling to look inward i'm going to uh engaged in a hoffa gm literally going to eat some of myself.

"Exactly it's uh it's not that uh that that this is a it's it's more nuanced but it is the most liberating diet you can possibly imagine and it certainly the basis of my recommendations are you gotta be in ketosis sometimes and your book is doing a really good job of getting people jumpstarted into this and and just put him on a on a real path that doing it which which is a service well thanks i i want to just touch on what you said before about your the old paradigm but which you live which was multiple small meals a day because if you didn't keep up your glucose levels you go into cannibal mode you cannibalize muscle tissue um that would lower your metabolism which would make it even more difficult to burn off excess calories and by the way all that stuff is true you know all this if you are living in that sugar slash carbohydrate paradigms and you trained your body to to access most of its energy from glycogen or from food a primarily carbohydrate then then you lose your ability you literally your ability burns fat axes and you know you don't need is me carreied as many um mighty konri of because fat burns on mitochondrial but if you're not burning much fat cells go we don't need to maintain this expensive machinery the burn fat if you're never going to burn fat if you're always going to be giving us every couple of hours a fresh supply of glucose then we'll become really good at burning fat burning glucose and we'll socket burning fat now the danger of that is if you do skip meals then exactly what you said you would fear happened does happen if a body is so used to just getting its energy from glucose and guy kitchen and then he went hold that.
