Is 75 Percent Dietary Fat Dangerous on a Ketogenic Diet?


hey guys I’m back again and in this video we’re going to talk about is ketosis more of a low carb diet or is it more of a high-fat diet when you talk to people and you mention ketosis sometimes they freak out because oh yeah you’re you’re in a high-fat diet you’re going to clog your arteries but let’s just kind of dig into actually what makes up keep ketogenic diet or what puts you into ketosis it’s not the high fat if you just went on a high-fat diet you wouldn’t necessarily get into ketosis it’s the low carbohydrate because when you actually get rid of carbohydrates and cut it down to 5% of your total calories you force your body to switch the fuel to burn more fat okay so in the absence of insulin an absence of sugar glucose carbohydrates your body is then forced to burn more fat so if you keep your carbohydrates very low you have to make it up with other things now if you actually made it up with protein and had mass amounts of protein unfortunately that also will trigger insulin okay so then we’re left with fat so when we talk about high fat we’re talking about 70 to 75% of your total calories need to be fat now before you freak out let’s just talk about what that is because it’s not that much really so let’s just take an average of 1,800 calories let’s say you’re on an eating plan that roughly is about 1,800 calories per day okay 70 to 75% of those calories would come out to 120 grams of fat if we divided by three we get 40 grams of fat per meal all right now what does that come out to is that a lot well let’s just take a look we combine 3/4 of an avocado which basically is 22 grams of fat and combined peanut butter two tablespoons that comes out to 38 grams of fat that’s not that much okay like in your mind you might think you’re eating a huge cup of lard and bacon and cheese and all these other things but really you’re not let’s take a look at 1/2 a cup of almonds with 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil in your salad that’s 46 grams of fat that’s more than 40 grams let’s take let’s say we mix olive oil with pecans 1/4 of a cup of pecans which is 25 grams plus 21 grams that’s 46 grams of fat so it’s not that much so really 70 to 75% of your total calories being fat grams is actually not as much as you think ok so I just wanted to point this out just to give you some reality and some relative value of what you’re dealing with but the key is keeping the carbs low alright thanks for watching hi guys and hey listen I created a pretty amazing evaluation quiz down below that actually analyzes your symptoms to find the cause the root cause of all of your symptoms the most likely cause so take the quiz now and we’ll send you report
