01:40 Keto is not a diet. Keto is a metabolic process. Every single one of our ancestors follow the ketogenic diet. Their environment put them in ketosis.
02:35 We are born in ketosis. Babies that are breastfed go in and out of ketosis because breast milk is made of saturated fat and cholesterol.
03:30 How ketosis works inside the body at the cellular level.
06:08 The difference between burning sugar (glucose) and burning fat (ketones). Sugar burners vs fat burners.
06:45 How keto helps to reduce inflammation inside of the body.
07:45 The real cause of weight gain and weight loss resistance.
09:20 The first tip: Focus on health over fat loss. You do not lose weight to be healthy. You get healthy to lose weight. Pay attention to non-scale victories, and get keto blood work done.

2 tablespoons of coconut oil or mct oil
2 tablespoons of grass fed butter or ghee
2 teaspoons of sea salt
15:55 The fourth tip: Consume bitters to help your liver and gallbladder produce bile. Bile acts as a detergent to break down fat. Most people have sluggish bile leading to keto digestive issues such as constipation, diarrhea, and not feeling good on keto. If you don’t have a gallbladder on keto, it can still be done with some considerations. Here is a video on 5 ways to follow the ketogenic diet without a gallbladder: https://youtu.be/Z6nwyhh3Zac

30:45 The best fats to eat on the keto diet.
31:43 Number 10 tip: If you experience sugar and carbohydrate cravings on keto, do this.
Cinnamon. It has an active ingredient called polyphenol; this activates your cell receptor sites and wakes up your cells by allowing glucose to get into the cell. Cinnamon has been used for over 4,000 years. It is high in antioxidants. #7 ORAC score, antioxidant score. cinnamon blood sugar study in type 2 diabetics: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1...
Cinnamon for diabetes can help block the activity of several digestive enzymes to slow the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream after a high-carb meal https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2/
Many studies have shown that people with type 2 diabetes can experience significant positive effects on blood sugar markers by supplementing with cinnamon extract.
FENUGREEK With trace nutrients (iron, manganese, copper) and a variety of antioxidants, fenugreek is a wonderful keto herb. In a study published in the Journal of Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders, it was also observed that the control ground had a "4.2 times higher chance of developing type-2 diabetes compared to subjects in the fenugreek group.”
CLOVES Consuming cloves can help stop sugar cravings as well. In a study, 30 type-2 diabetics were given capsules containing zero, one, two or three grams of cloves each day for a month to observe their serum glucose levels. Researchers of the study suggested that consuming one to three grams of cloves per day is beneficial for type-2 diabetics to better manage their glucose and total cholesterol levels.”
GINSENG In several human studies American ginseng lowered blood sugar levels in people with type-2 diabetes. The blood sugar lowering effect was seen both on fasting blood sugar and on postprandial (after eating) glucose levels. Drink ginseng tea before or after your keto meals.
L-GLUTAMINE L-glutamine calms the part of your brain that lights up when you experience a sugar/carb craving. It turns out, sugar is as addicting as cocaine, and some say sugar is 8 times more addicting than cocaine. Wow. Take 500mg of l-glutamine powder, up to 3 times each day. I recommend this one: https://amzn.to/3aXo7vu
32:55 The 11th tip: What are the best sweeteners for keto?
33:43 The 12th tip: Master sleep and stress on keto. Stress (cortisol) will raise glucose and insulin, dropping ketone production. This can prevent you from getting into ketosis, or even knock you out of ketosis.
