If you’re new to my channel, you’ve come to the right place. This is the first of many helpful videos to watch. I wanted to create this video specifically to help those looking for the keto basics and how to start the ketogenic diet. In this video, I’m going to cover the intermittent fasting and healthy keto diet basics. If you have friends or family members wondering how to start the keto diet as well, don’t forget to point them to this video too! 

What is the Ketogenic Diet or Ketosis? 
• Ketosis means you’re in a state of fat burning.

• When you get into ketosis and fat burning, the fat breaks down into what are called ketones. The body can use ketones as an alternative fuel source. This is a much better fuel source than sugar fuel.
• The healthy ketogenic diet is a version of the regular ketogenic diet based on a principle where you have to “get healthy first, then lose the weight.” “Get healthy” refers to eating healthy, high-quality foods that provide all of the nutrients your body needs. 

What is Intermittent Fasting? 
• Intermittent fasting is a pattern of eating and not eating. Instead of doing 3-6 meals a day plus snacking, you’re eating less frequently. This is important because every time you eat, you raise a hormone called insulin. Too much insulin is very dangerous in the body. With the healthy keto diet and intermittent fasting, we’re reducing the excess insulin. 

How to Lower Insulin? 
• Consume fewer carbohydrates (sugar, refined carbs, grains, pasta, cereal, biscuits, waffles, juice, alcohol, etc.)

• Eat less frequently 

Symptoms of High Insulin:
• Belly fat 
• High blood pressure 
• High cholesterol 
• Fatigue (especially after eating)
• Decreased cognitive function (lack of focus, poor memory) 
• Moodiness (irritable, depressed, grouchy)
• Cravings
• You’re hungry all of the time (especially in-between meals)

Benefits of the Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:
• Weight loss 
• Reduced inflammation 
• Supports cognitive function 
• Supports mood
• Making the body function better
