How Ketogenic Diet Helps Reverse Diabetes

Thom King, Founder of the Steviva brands and author of the book “Guy Gone Keto” explains the, Ketogenic Diet, and how it helps reverse diabetes, alleviates Alzheimer’s and dementia.

 

Your body, the human body has the ability to burn two types of fuel.  Your body can burn glucose or your body can burn, ketones,.  So in the absence of glucose in your body, that’s when the switch goes on and you start to burn, ketones.

I’m sure a lot of people are like what the heck are, ketones,?  Ketones, are actually metabolized fat. Your liver produces ketones by metabolizing fat; so basically if you are eating a high-fat diet, lots of butter, coconut oil, avocados etc.  your  liver is actually metabolizing those fats and turning them into, ketones,  that is a, ketogenic diet,

Your body operates very efficiently on, ketones, you have these little cells in your body called mitochondria, that probably sounds very fancy; but think of mitochondria as the little batteries that powers your cells.  They’re found in every living thing on the face of the planet and the more you feed your mitochondria, the more energy you have.  If the mitochondria live on, ketones, then you want more ketones in your diet. In the, ketogenic diet, you’re able to produce more energy from your mitochondria and this elevates brain function.

I would say that the biggest benefit of the, ketogenic diet, is elevated brain function and cognitive function.

 

The, ketogenic diet, not only reverses the Diabetes epidemic; but it also  alleviates Alzheimer’s and dementia. People on the, ketogenic diet, also says it helps them with brain fog as well.

Coconut oil is one of the fats recommended in the, ketogenic diet, people consider coconut oil sort of an exogenous, ketone, but that’s not 100% true.  Exogenous means that you’re taking it from the outside of your body and putting it into your body; but it’s by consuming coconut oil that your body or your liver actually metabolizes that coconut oil.  The liver then converts that over to, ketones, and so you’ll feel an instant rush of energy.

 The, Ketogenic Diet, and Sweeteners.

 The main benefit of, ketones, and the, ketonic diet,  is reducing our intake of sugar. We want to reduce glucose and carbohydrates in our blood.

 One of the ways to do this is to not use sugar, but use an alternative. Thom King is the founder of the Steviva Brands.

 The, ketogenic diet,  benefit from healthy sweeteners like Steviva because your body can’t turn it into glucose.

The, ketogenic diet, comprises of  70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbohydrates.  The carbohydrates should come from cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussels sprouts etc.; not sweeteners like sugar.

Anything that grows above the ground is essentially good to eat in the, ketogenic diet, if it grows under the ground, it is probably going to be too high on the glycemic index and you don’t want to eat it.

One the biggest principles in the, ketogenic diet,  is going to be avoiding sugar, because sugar will take your body out of ketosis. You want to deprive your body of sugar, so it forces your body to burn fat for energy, and that is where alternative sweeteners come in.  

Some of the sweeteners that we use would be Stevia, some of them are monk fruit which comes from a natural fruit from Southeast Asia.  We also use Organic Erythritol is a natural sweetener found in fruits and fermented foods, derived from fermented corn.  It’s about 70 percent of sweeter than sugar; but doesn’t have any calories to speak of and no impact on blood sugar.

We work with a lot of different sweeteners but probably the one that I’m most excited about right now is called Keto Sweet Plus, it is a blend of Monk fruit and Stevia and you can use this just like you would sugar.  So if you’re baking and you need something to rise, it will do that.  It also engages in fermentation.  It also participates in what’s called the my yard effect!  That is the interaction of proteins and fats which creates caramelization.  So when you’re barbecuing and you slather on a bunch of barbecue sauce you’ll notice that you get like the hard shell.  You know it gets crispier than is actually that is. That is a function of the artifact, and so this particular sweetener works well in baking and condiments and it’s  been my go-to sweetener over the past couple years and works well with the, ketogenic diet,

If you head over to www.steviva.com you will find hundreds of recipes, you adopt them as your own.  All of them are part of the, ketogenic diet, with low carb recipes.

Guy Gone Keto and the, Ketogenic Diet,

 Guy Gone Keto I would say it’s a guide book. It is my journal from eating bad foods and being 40 lbs overweight to becoming healthy again.  I was carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, getting  brain fog, my blood pressure was 190 over 99 and at that point it’s like I need to make a change.

So I just started journaling about it and a year later I had a book, and months after that I had a publisher.

 I do have some recipes and meal plans for the, ketogenic diet, but I would say that the premise of the book is more the steps or even the tools that you will need to make a lifestyle change.  

 I started reading your book and it reminded me of Mel Robbins book the “5 Sec Rule” In the beginning of her book she shares her story of what her life looked like before she found the “5 sec rule” your book Guy Gone Keto, you started off in the same way sharing your story.  It makes the readers connect with you more.
