Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer

Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer-
Ketosis to Help Your Business? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com/life-fitness-coaching
-Ketosis is when your body turns to fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Ketosis can occur during fasting, when you reduce the amount of carbs or calories in your diet, during pregnancy or after exercising for a long period of time. Many diets use ketosis as the means of burning fat while maintaining muscle – examples include the Atkins diet and other low-carb diets. This strategy can also lead to decreased hunger. How long does it take to kick your body into fat burning, ketosis mode? Roughly 3-4 days of consuming less than 50 carbs per day, the equivalent of 2 bananas. Benefits include weight loss, seizure prevention, cardiovascular health and type-2 diabetes help, to name a few.
How does it Work? When glucose is in short supply, your liver will break down fats into ketones, which are then used throughout your body for energy. Muscles and other tissues in your body use ketones rather than glucose for energy metabolism. In a healthy person, the production of ketones for energy is the body’s natural response to starvation, so this happens when dieting, overnight and during fasting.
Glucose or Ketones: Which is More Effective? Many brain diseases, such as epilepsy, are already being treated by the ketogenic diet. The mechanisms to why it helps the brain are still being studied, but there are some possible reasons that ketones seem to be a good energy source for the brain. One major Ketone, beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB, provides more energy per unit of oxygen than glucose, and thus may be even more efficient than glucose at providing energy to the brain. (3)
-The ketogenic diet has also been found to increase the number of mitochondria in brain cells. In a 2004 study on rats, one group was fed a ketogenic diet while the other was fed a normal diet. A positive impact was found on the gene expression for mitochondrial enzymes in the hippocampus, the memory and learning center of the brain. (4)
Ketosis and Body Water Composition: High fat and low carb diets are known to lead to fast weight loss. The fast weight loss is due to water weight being shed (5)
-When you decrease carbs, you decrease water storage in the body.
Who Can Benefit From Ketosis? If you are looking to shed some body fat, ketosis may be a good tool. This can go along with an exercise regimen as you maintain muscle while losing fat. Ketosis can also benefit those who need to boost brain power as energy may be utilized more effectively in the brain.
*Be careful because those with diabetes can get too high of a level of ketones in their blood, which is very dangerous. This occurs due to the low levels of insulin in the blood, which will signal the body to produce excess ketones that will build up in the blood, making the blood pH too low.

What To Eat Before And After Your Workout To Maximize Fat Loss - With Thomas DeLauer

Hey guys it’s Thomas here to show you guys a couple nutrition tips on how to transform your pre-workout meal into fat-burning fuel. Today is all about boosting your metabolism to utilize body fat as your primary energy source.

Video Breakdown:

0:53 – So let’s get started with your pre-workout meal choice. My tip here is to try to not combine a protein and carb source as your pre workout meal. By doing this, you are making sure that your body is circulating blood to the muscles instead of to your digestive organs.

2:01 – The reason why I recommend guys to avoid eating protein and carbs together before working out is because the body can not efficiently break down these energy sources at the same time.

2:30 – This is why guys who eat big pre-workout meals tend to get a bloated, upset stomach during their training.

3:00 – What I strongly suggest guys to choose as their pre-workout food source is fruit. The energy from fruit is utilized rapidly.

3:40 – Now if you are in the gym and find yourself bored between sets, I’ve got a solution for you: stretching.

5:00 – What I recommend doing is stretching the antagonist muscle, or opposing muscle, to the body part you are training. If you are training triceps, stretch your biceps. If you are training back, stretch your chest… This will allow you to actually get a better contraction and pump during your working sets!

6:10 – Now, you can choose a high protein and high fat post workout meal, completely skipping the carbs, if you are looking to burn off body fat fast.

6:50 – And you are in luck because I’m going to show you a great, easy meal to eat after a workout: grass fed beef burgers.

8:04 – Here’s how you can make this recipe:
1. Coat your stove top pan with coconut oil
2. In a mixing bowl, add the beef with Himalayan pink salt, turmeric and combine the ingredients into patties
3. Add the burger patties to the heated pan (on medium) and cook until browned on both sides.

10:30 – As always, keep it locked here at Six Pack Shortcuts for all of your weight loss, nutrition and muscle building needs!
