Watch this before you attempt the ketogenic diet

Welcome to the Raw Food Health
Empowerment Show! I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Liz
McDowell of Meat-Free Keto We talked about why she went from vegan
to a ketogenic diet, the pitfall she’s experienced, the positive benefits of
doing keto and some things to look out for if you’re interested in doing a
ketogenic diet the healthy way. She has some valuable tips and valuable
resources so take a listen. So it’s so nice to officially meet you. Thank you for having this interview with me. I am so keto curious right now because
everyone is talking about it. okay yeah and from what I’ve read you know some
people are getting great benefits from it even within the vegan community. People who have been vegan for a long time for some reason or another have decided to try keto and that’s what I want to ask you is like
what even inspired you to get here but just to kind of backtrack a little bit I
found you because I joined some vegan keto groups on Facebook and you are one of their go-to resources. Yeah yeah and it’s so niche so. It really is. Yeah so maybe just
kind of like talk about yourself, all of what you’re doing and how you got started in
veganism and blogging. Yeah absolutely um so hi I’m Liz from MeatFreeKeto.com
basically I’m a vegan low-carb er or keto’er I guess we could say too and
I’ve been vegetarian actually since I was 12 years old and then only vegan
for like five years now but um yeah you know how it is like you go vegetarian
and you’re all idealistic and then you realize being vegetarian doesn’t
really eliminate a lot of the problems that you were hoping to at least with animal cruelty. That’s kind of the thing I’m in veganism for so I finally made
the leap and educated myself and went vegan and I at the time I was really
into high carb veganism which I know works for so many people it’s so good
for so many people and I wish I were one of those people. I love food and
I loved eating that way but it really just wasn’t working for me so I did some…
I was in school for nutrition at the time so I kind of did exploring and
thought well there’s a whole bunch of people doing this whole low-carb keto
thing. I wonder if I could apply that to a vegan diet. so I started experimenting and then I started blogging to kind of just keep track of
it really because there wasn’t anything out there that I found and I wanted to
remember what I was doing and I figured if any one other person read it, it would
help them maybe. Yeah then it just kept going on for like five years and here we
are so what nutrition school were you going
to? So I did a distance program through Bowman College and
they’re located in Pembroke, California It’s a great program. I highly
recommend it to anyone. Okay yeah you got your bachelor’s in nutrition or…? I actually went back to school for nutrition I got my Bachelor’s in art
history and then I went back to school and so it’s a certificate it’s not like
a bachelor’s but it’s a two-year intensive program. Okay okay cool, so you
got into veganism basically because you’re an animal rights activist? Is that fair to say? I feel like I’m not cool enough to actually be an
activist but yeah I’m an animal lover and a bleeding-heart and I want to be an
activist but I want to be able to be there but baby steps. We’re taking baby steps to the activist but yeah it was for the animals. Okay okay got it. You said that it wasn’t working for you
like it’s working for other people so what were you looking for the vegan diet
to do for you? Oh sure well so I followed a lot of YouTubers at
the time and I think the friends years ago and even now still to a certain
degree is into the 80/10/10 diet where you’re very high carb and that
really that works for those people it definitely does. You see it they’re very
healthy looking they’re very healthy sounding. They seem very happy but for me
um I was cold all the time I mean gaining weight was weird because I
didn’t think I was eating that much I was hungry all the time I was exhausted I was really
cranky like super cranky towards my roommates and I kind of figured I love being vegan
but I’m not sure the way I’m being vegan is particularly helpful. Okay. Yeah so
well you know it’s like it’s when you’re tired all the time and you’re cold all
the time. It was the middle of summer too so it wasn’t winter I felt like I
shouldn’t be shivering in July and maybe I was doing something wrong that
wasn’t working. Have you learned anything from that point? Do you feel like if you were to do veganism 80/10/10 again, you would do it differently? I think I probably would do
differently I was very into fruit. At the time Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead was really
trendy that documentary. So all my friends we were all doing juice
cleanses and we were smashing in bananas so to speak and um you know just trying to
get as much fruit in as possible and I think that if I were to try an 80 10 10 approach again I would definitely go more towards cooked starches and I think high carb Hannah actually on YouTube does something more like that
and I would probably attempt that approach. So you were feeling cold
right and didn’t have energy. You didn’t feel in your best health so at that time I’m just
trying to think back to like when you were even thinking
about possibly doing keto, did you ever think well maybe I should go back to vegetarianism? I did a little of course you always have those thoughts and like my
boyfriend at the time ate dairy and eggs and in fact there are recipes on my blog that
have dairy and eggs for things I made for him and so I thought well oh maybe I
should give that a try. My doctor told me to include animal products again because
she thought that that would be helpful but I kind of you know when you just
find veganism and you’re so passionate and enthusiastic and I really
wanted to make it work. Yeah okay okay and so then what even had keto come into
your mind as a possibility? So it was while I was in school and we were
kind of studying as silly as this sounds, fad diets, so I was looking into paleo and keto and
then I started thinking well firstly you know keto is disgusting if you just look at
conventional keto bacon, burgers, tons of cheese yeah they advocate no vegetables
but I was looking…or not no [vegetables] but minimal. I was looking at these results
that people were getting and thinking oh if they’re actually stabilizing their
blood level they’re like blood sugar levels and their cholesterol is not
abysmal like I anticipated it would be you know like if they’re doing their blood
markers are all improving and they’re becoming healthier doing this what would
happen if you did this with actual good foods for you and actual positive
nutrition. It was more of like a what if this crazy thing could happen. Let’s just see because I figured you know how it is when you first you’re
trying to find a diet that works for you so you experiment a lot. I thought this would be another little experiment and wouldn’t it be cool if this could work.
Yeah it’s such a mind shift to go from 80/10/10 and all of that you know the
sound so negative like indoctrination right? I know I totally understand.
And then keto which is like for most people which makes sense it’s like the
exact opposite flipping the whole thing on its head. High high fat,
not as much protein right so they kind of maybe are in
agreement with the protein situation with not having excessive amounts of that but the
carbs so it’s like the … and like the high carbers are anti-fat. Yeah so how did you how did you so you wanted to try this you’re like okay let me see if this could work and
then you’re like of course I’m gonna try and do it vegan because this is my
value system right now. Exactly. Okay and then how was the beginning for you? So it
wasn’t hard because fortunately at the time I worked at a natural food store so I had access to a lot of like you know the crappy vegan foods like high-fat vegan
foods that aren’t the best for you but they’re vegan and they fit the macro profile at
the time so I’d be putting my vegan cream cheese on my flax crackers and
eating just noodles with tons of like shirataki noodles with tons of
oil and like peanut butter to make my own peanut sauce and everything which I
still do sometimes cause it’s really tasty? But you liked it? You liked all the foods? Weirdly, I did I’ve
always been more of a salt person so the fact that I could eat all these savory
foods and I didn’t miss sugar that much because I could eat food filled with
peanut butter at a whim and of course over the years I’ve refined that and I
realized that a certain point in time that you have to add in tons of
vegetables in order to really feel good and to I think to obtain a balanced
macro and micro nutrient profile. Right yeah which is important you know a lot
of these diets they’re very much focused on the macros. Right. And not a lot is
spoken of regarding the micronutrients which science doesn’t even know all of the
nutrients that are in fruits and vegetables. We just know that we need them. Exactly. I was just going to say that another reason I think it’s just
important to not focus on counting carbs and vegetables and just like eat the spinach without caring about it because there’s so much going on in that spinach. It’s more than just vitamin A or like vitamin K there’s a whole world that we
don’t even understand that’s clearly doing stuff for our bodies so we could just
stop worrying about the carbs in spinach and just eat the spinach. Yeah, have faith in the infinite wisdom of fruits and vegetables. Exactly!
So in the beginning you were loving the food because long did it take for you so I had IBS
pretty much my entire life and within a week that had normalized which I know
sounds crazy but it was weirdly true like I didn’t realize that being regular
was a real thing I thought that was more than one of those TV commercials try to
sell you Metamucil buy thing like oh you can be regular too and I was like
alright whatever but um after starting keto I don’t know
whether there’s something in my gut flora to you maybe it was the less sugar
and and switched everything I don’t I honestly don’t know but it just that
normalized and um I lost weight like most people do without was it really
even my goal at the time so I was very happy and I know it was mostly just
water weight but so I think about good to get rid of that inflammation yeah and
then a weird thing was that I had joint pain which sounds crazy because I was
about 25 at the time and pretty young for joint pain but I’m thought
disappeared I didn’t realize that that was was one of those things that you
didn’t realize you had until it was gone and I woke up and I wasn’t stiff
everywhere every day yeah that’s awesome so within a week and at that point
you’re basically eating like what was a typical day of meals for you um
time I wasn’t at all thinking about meals I was doing that thing where you
track all your food and you just eat and then track it and then say oh I have X
amount of carb Club so basically I would like impulse eat
almonds and fresh coconut was pretty much for in macadamia nuts on most of my
day and then by the end of the day I would get home and do something like the
noodles with the spinach and hot sauce on it and that wasn’t bad it was it’s so
unhealthy compared to how I eat now and it’s so weird because it wasn’t even
structured meals it was just me eating like knots and peanut butter foot and
not interesting so so when they were just left were you following like a
Cheeto or yeah so when I first started very much the dogma and it is Padma in
the community was 20 grams of carbs or less or you’re not on a ketogenic diet
it was like you had to be under 20 grams now that seems insane to me but I was
very determined to follow things just to see how this experiment would go so I
would try to keep it to 20 grams sometimes going up to 25 if I was
feeling crazy okay so you it was just right and it was pretty much all from
the spinach and almond interesting yeah so did you experience
any negative effects since you’ve been not just from the beginning but like
since you started this whole keto journey
yeah of course one was definitely financial at the beginning it is
expensive to eat that many masks and I was definitely a little bit healthier
yeah and then there are definitely times where I feel tired and rundown and I
have hog cravings breathing rather and all the quality parts per weekend and
refuel my body and go with it but those are the things that you you know you
have to feel your body out and you have to say this is what works for me this is
what bugling what I want right now so this is what we’re doing yeah so it
sounds like you’re not like strict with yourself you’re very flexible yeah okay
which is good I think that’s a very healthy space to be in because like what
for me personally what I love about like you saw the last episode I did paleo
yeah and doing all that vegan is that all of them have something great to add
to the conversation and we don’t have to be dogmatic about it we’re all different
and so like our levels should adjust accordingly to our lifestyle our needs
of time because even like you now like your early 20s I’m sure what you needed
maybe was marquart’s and then you didn’t meet so many cards do you know it’s like
we change as the agent exactly yeah so that’s great so for vegans who are
interested in Quito what would you recommend that they do how long have you
been kiddo vegan um so I’m not in pieces all the time but I’ve been doing this
for about five years a long time yeah he actually came from LA where you are
he was my AB so maybe he sent a Californian
is sending me much appreciated man um so I guess for vegans are interested I
would say don’t do what I did I just do – it and I think that that was probably
not the best way because you end up spending a lot of money and I didn’t
have a plan and I just I wasn’t eating the best food I would recommend kind of
starting off slow and taking a look at what you eat every day and thing okay uh
maybe if you have like a fruit smoothie for breakfast every day you find pumping
this low-carb to replace that way or or even something simpler like if you are
used to eating a lot of curries with rice this looks like the right some
cauliflower rice for a while and then as you make all these little changes
throughout the week eventually you’ll be at a place where you’re pretty low carb
and then you can see how you feel doing it I love that I think that’s brilliant
and like you had a situation where you didn’t feel good in your body so let me
experiment and try this because I naturally intuitively feel called to try
this and you experimented and within the first week you know wasn’t perfect
you know benefit which is a win you know I think because you learn a lot the
process so right now what do your keto macros look like wait are you doing 60% yeah
so I normally don’t talk but every once in a while I’ve been flying this track
lately especially since you contacted me so I can actually get a handle on like
okay I have an answer for her yeah I do tend to eat around 60% I
and then my cards are actually a little bit on the higher end like I’ll eat
around I’m lucky though I can get over the 40 to 50 grams of net carbs and
still be in ketosis oh can you explain that
oh yeah no absolutely and not everyone uses them so that’s even more confusing
that kind there basically it’s um the total carbs you eat in a day and
then you just subtract the number of grams and fiber
so let’s say I ate in grams it’s hard and like 46 grams of fiber which is
actually not unusual then I would have 34 grams of net carbs and then those net
carbs count because your body actually utilizes those so as you know like fiber
isn’t digested by us it’s either passed through or at ease by our gut bacteria
keep it in the soluble fiber so this takes that out of the equation and says
okay that sugar is not or those cards aren’t impacting our blood sugar levels
so we’re just going to use the carbs that are starches and like sugars that
actually impact blood sugar levels and get your insulin going so if you’re not
eating packaged food how are you tracking this information so I’m at this
point in my life I just eyeball everything which isn’t particularly
helpful but when I’m making recipes for infants I just weigh out ingredients and
then I use tonometer with information from the USDA database yeah yeah the
80/10/10 lifestyle they most likely know yeah which is very very detailed and I
think I don’t know but I kind of feel like if someone has themselves when it
comes to food yeah I’m a person especially if you have any disordered
eating in your past or which I mean a lot of especially women do and men as
well we all have these no one has any idea how to eat until you figure it out
with and as fab and we think about it but I think it’s true it’s crazy
and then I think for some people weighing you super helpful in the
beginning because it give you that idea like oh that’s what a serving of lettuce
is without for the serving of Methos I had no idea but then I think if you do
it too much and if you keep doing it you develop these nervous
you know most where you feel the needs are constantly weigh everything and if
it’s not perfect and you’re not affecting your plan like everything’s
ruined them yeah so my money because I talk about like the benefits the normal
diet or the natural diet for human beings I was in the Bay Area California
and there was all the stuff that I was hearing and learning and I was I was
learning it from the health perspective it was always cardiovascular health
you know diabetes so that was always a concern and great you’re doing okay to
make sure eating enough now keto this whole people who are not and you’re
getting the nutrition that other people who are just like you know
which it’s fun if you’re not feeling any any problems right
and there’s also like I like to do a combination of both those things most of
the time well like half the time I just eat I just if I feel fine I consume that
I’m doing but then I also like to check in and say what am i eating as you know
if you really into nutrition you kind of have a little bit of a mental idea and I
don’t know about you but for me there’s always a little almost like a ticker in
the back of my head look oh okay good you get your greens in today you had
about that many seeds so you’re probably around as many calories so there’s
always almost like a subconscious factor in the back of my head yeah but every
once in a while I think it’s good to check in with fun-o-meter and say
alright what am I getting like protein what am I getting for both my B vitamins
what am am I getting any omega-3 fatty acids like where it was coming from what
am i doing and I think the good two-strike a healthy balance between
those things absolutely so today when you’re in ketosis so at
the beginning when I first started um I got those little sticks that you peed on
with in person weird but what you need now is Audrey and the they’re better for
telling you any and obviously something you’re exceeding isn’t in that moment
it’s from whenever you would processing all that stuff so it’s not minutes a
minute but if you keep eating the same way you can kind of discern that oh okay
I am in Quito Zoe’s based on the packet this is how I was eating this morning
and you stick that on kosis from then so it’s not perfect but it worked a lot of
people do the blood measuring foot seriously it’s like two dollars and
fifty cents per one of those strips and I do not have the castor that both I
think that’s a little intense like an you have to prick your finger yeah I’m not about that so I don’t do that
but after a while I started to kind of feel and understand okay like when I
have you know your body just feels different when you eat your inky ptosis
and you can when okay I’m kind of gross but like when you pee it looks a little
different and because your excreting ketones now and so for me it’s a little
more clear because I tend to drink a lot of fluid when I’m on like a ketogenic
diet but also a pretty weak thirsty yeah so what happened to them when your body
is releasing all this glycogen so you release all the glycogen stores in your
muscles and then you for glycogen you also store water that’s just like how
it’s packaged in your body and so you shed a lot of water once you said all
this thumb all these vicodin sores but you also just you just end up been
drinking a lot of water essentially so you are more thirsty you tend to I don’t
actually know whether you metabolize things faster I don’t some people say
your metabolism speeds up I’m not actually sure that that’s true I think
that might just be a bro sciency thing but I know that you definitely end up
drinking way more water and to compensate for that too you should
increase your mineral intake and your salt intake just to keep your
electrolytes from going out of out of whack but yeah so I’m thirstier than
normal and he’s like a little it sounds so weird it’s less like warm yellow and
almost like a cooler yep and I know that’s a really bizarre to think than to
pay attention to you but I mean you should know I guess what things are
coming out of you too they’re just all in your house absolutely like I love
when people talk about that stuff because the thing is most people when
they get sick like first of all they wait till Vegas right they don’t listen
to the body cues they’re not observing things and then they run to the doctor
for like chronic issues when in my humble opinion
I’m not a doctor but I feel like the doctor is more for acute issues chronic
issues are really quiet Aryan lifestyle that we can take care of ourselves you
know I can both agree and so if we pay attention to what’s coming out of us so
you know these are only signs that either something is not right or we’re
on the right path you know at least be observing because even if you’re going
to go to the doctor the doctor is going to ask you these questions in if you’re
not paying attention the doctor can’t help you because the doctor doesn’t know
what’s going on is nearby only you know it’s happening so it’s important to
observe you know all of that stuff so I’m glad that you see I love talking
about it with other nutrition centered people because really you get it I don’t
have to be embarrassed in front of you and be like why look at my feet pretty
regularly you know you just understand that and we talk about openly absolutely
I love that I am loving this conversation so your meals today yeah
what do they look so since it’s winter I’ve been eating a lot of like storage
vegetables um so a lot of it is habits based which it’s what we’ve gotten
season right now um so I usually actually I do intermittent fasting so I
tend not to eat any breakfast yeah I saw her go into the fasting I did yeah I
didn’t taste in season yeah it’s kind of cool isn’t it I had a dog
again that’s when you think that I’m not dogmatic about and if I’m not feeling it
one day I will eat breakfast if I really want it but for the most part I tend to
get breakfast on them just like head right into the lung space yeah but I was
this this episode is not about animated fasting but I do want to just put a pin
in there and just ask me quickly like have you
and a breakfast person um so not really actually I think I remember being upset
that my mom was for seating me breakfast but I was a kid the other year I would
always be near a person like that is like the most important meal of food I
look forward to breakfast um like the night prior and I think I’m sure and
that’s nothing to do with my childhood I don’t remember ever being forced like to
eat breakfast but I’ve always loved breakfast so like with intermittent
fasting I struggle in the morning it so it looks like a mental thing but it’s a
lot I learned it’s a lot easier for me to delay my eating in the morning so
yeah like midday whether it be 12 or 2 it doesn’t really matter as long as I
stay hydrated because I tried it without water and except oh I can’t imagine that to not eat after three it’s hard it is
how hard I’m at like way more and I think know if you’ve read her book it’s
a very interesting book she’s had a history of addictions and then she
played drug addictions then she got over the drug addictions
but ended up food addiction and you know you’ve got obese from that then figured
out if she just had these bright lines where she’s weighing food and no
snacking um then you can keep in line with your addictions if your addiction
problem like she has so you’re more big she’ll phone stay within these bright
lines and you don’t fear from that and you’re good you can keep your weight
down and all that kind of stuff in her book what I like that she talks about
like the psychology of eat where we’re making all these decisions throughout
the day that at a certain time like towards the you know from this perspective being
vegan or transitioning to vegan like not you know not really because once I
decided it was like you know but with this I get now what people are saying
with trying to be vegan and being in a family now I understand you know as a
health coach these people’s experience yeah absolutely complete no it’s a good
campaign and it’s true I have the same thing when I I tried eating breakfast so
there was a period of time where I would just wake up starving every morning and
I was like oh this is my body telling me breakfast time and so when I was trying
to do intermittent fasting and eating it like starting my with it at 7:00 in the
morning as you know that goes to what we and the balloon up to stop eating up
crazy I get home same thing it was like my husband who’s my boyfriend at the
time and be eating all this food and I’m just sitting there looking at it for
luan laying so like kind of hard to just lay to eat and I know some people who
could do that but they’re amazing but okay so your meals today oh yeah we
kind of did and then my tangents around yeah so so far I’ve it’s 2:30 for me
right now and around noontime I actually had a bowl of coconut yogurt with peanut
butter and blueberries with that’s what I wanted and that’s what I ate and so I
have in my like crock pot right now I’ve got like a cabbage stupid thing so if I
will be my my dinner or whatever my next meal is it doesn’t know so I’m I tend to
put it like like I put mushrooms which also don’t have a lot of pollen but I’ll
have I’ll probably put so Gerwin this this because sometimes you need you know
you need like a good quick protein of yeah easy so I pretty much have five
every meal and for dinner I I have a habit of putting hemp seeds on literally
everything just everything and so I know it said the most appetizing thing but
there dallisa and I buy them in bulk so I just yeah so
I’ll probably specific food exactly my agent my pocket it’s true it’s so much
Oh basically I’ll make a stew and I’ll
season a however and I do cook with a little bit of oil though I try to avoid
using oil versus cold plant foods like I would prefer to use olives instead of
olive oils but I put a little olive oil so I don’t like blue in my pan
um basically yeah exactly so um it’ll be a little bit of oil but kind of a
negligible amount and then yeah I’ll just drown it in hemp seeds and put
olives on everything cuz I really like them and I’ll eat an avocado for a snack
here and there and just playing is it salt and pepper on it so you have
pretty much sometimes I’ll put salsa like I’ll chop up a bunch of tomatoes
and pepper so that type of eating like we’re
there any hints before did you eat those types of meals yourself that way
I find your head yeah I had to kind of force it before I was keto and before my
whole high carb 80/10/10 she’s fasting then almost in I would be definitely
doing like junk food veganism my roommates and I would just you know you
buy like the box vegan mac and cheese or we have like an even pizza or just like
fake meat all the time and just you know just all of the Oreos are vegan type
done period by a woman Oreo so he worked at the health food store it was like a
Nima knows all that kind of crap so I had to totally retrain my both to
actually eat real food and now I can’t imagine doing it any other way
yeah yeah eating I’ve seen people who like naturally with snack on a pull-out
picado I don’t think I personally have gotten there so that’s like where my
disconnect no it’s totally yeah she’s my number one staple food in flaxseed too
because I think it’s important to balance your omegas and sir
I tend to if I’m making a smoothie for instance it’ll all we pop blackfeet in
and it’s yeah it’s just you know it’s another thing that I said to put in like
yogurt or on top of my food if it’s not have seen sake um another money saving
tip buy them whole and then grind them yourself
because one for some reason it’s cheaper to do that but to the medical ran for
the pussy I appreciate um then peanut butter is
another staple and again it’s cheap it’s got a good balance of um the different
amino acids which is helpful and it tastes good
so you know when you really need yeah exactly and then I would say a green any
green all types of green I love every green I’ve ever encountered but you can
do everything with them you can make a salad out of them or saute that I’m
gonna make them inputs do these are amazing and very nutrient sensing people
to just eat humble things all the time yeah yeah so where would you save the
majority of your fats are coming probably hemp seed um coconut yogurt
really I make my own coconut you were out of coconut milk
um but that and then that by that’s so embarrassing
this is it it’s tsukina butter yeah yeah I I think it I guess it’s not that I eat
like few items just that I try to for instance my variation comes from like
what type of berry am I putting in East Indies or what type of greens am i
eating a salad and in the summer I eat a large variety of obstacles obviously cuz
pops put some season and now it’s like cabbage and potatoes and kohlrabi so
you’re really limited but um yeah but I tend to I mean I am I’m apparently
allergic to almonds which I didn’t realize when I started that though I eat
very few types of nothin yeah I guess I do have a pretty limited diet but in a
weirdly broad scope of potted plant right you can mix imagine do could
you’re so using spices oh yeah addictions is because you know food is
just so readily available even more on demand our palates have been so excited that
this we need more and more and having a simple diet it’s completely fine when
you have actual whole foods you’re getting a whole array so this whole food
plant-based yeah yeah it’s I think it’s pretty much best for everything at this
point we’re discovering the overall health of us for our planet at the point
in time it’s very important to say I totally agree I think it like as long as
you’re eating again plants of different colors but either plant of different
plants and yeah so because I yeah so I tend to try to cook like us do basically
every week I just make myself up do and then like that’s what I’m doing right
now and then I have lunches or dinners or whatever that is for like finding at
my disposal and I think up time-saver and it helps with that as you said that
like decision fatigue at night when you’re like oh I don’t want to make
anything for dinner but you also don’t want to do put a frozen pizza in the
oven right right so you’re getting basically the same thing every day um so
this do would be the same every day but then like whether that’s my one for my
dinner all the other meals are pretty different because I’m not that person
yeah I’m not that person who can eat the same thing every day
I get super bored but I would say within the same my 20 meals all cycle through
those so any often so I’m like the biggest doing me freaky dough it’s all
like a hundred percent on your micro the macros yeah so let me ask you if they
followed the meal plans right and the lot is going to be in the description to
this video are they so ketosis as you men scented it is pretty individual and
for people who have extensive metabolic damage or who might be type-2 diabetic
or have hypoglycemia it might take fewer carbs to get you in
ketosis I think right now my plans hover around 30 grams of net carbs which
allows for like a bit like an absurd amount of vegetables it’s amazing but um
I do put notes in the plans on kind of reducing that but for the most part I
think I want to pay 80% of people should be able to achieve ketosis utilizing the
very basic plan no modification just eat the way they are and then thank you so
much for trying to figure it out thank you so much oh my pleasure that’s
basically my goal I just wanna help people in whatever way is there anything
that I didn’t ask you anything yes sir um and while you cover
all the bases I think but I were to add anything it would just be kind of we
touched on this earlier you don’t have to listen to all the dog mothers out
there and you don’t have to listen to people telling you oh you have to eat
these foods you can’t have four you can’t eat this you have to stick to this
many cars it’s more of a it’s literally a state of being when your body is in
ketosis and however you get there is kind of up to you so just do what feels
good for your body and then you’ll be golden thank you so much Lee thank you
for having me I love dead
