My Intermittent fasting and Cyclical Ketogenic dieting continues as I inch closer to my goal weight. This is the home stretch and I have to start thinking about weight maintenance soon. I have come a long way on this journey and learned alot about health, diet, and exercise. I have learned a new way of living and continue to refine it.

  1. The ketogenic/intermittent fasting probably cured your insulin resistance by and large. So if you are not insulin resistant, insulin just goes up and comes down, but doesn't go up and stay up for hours on end. Sugar though is dangerous in the sense that it can bring you back to insulin resistance.

  2. I've noticed that everybody who loses a significant amount of weight tends to refine their diet and change their eating philosophy over time, ultimately they ditch a lot of sugar and carbs and end up exercising more and paying a lot more attention to food quality. I've almost done the same thing, and now I'm doing intermittent fasting, with carb cycling.

  3. With carb up's you just have to tweak according to your own body. Some people go more than 48 hours and are fine others like yourself do only 24 hour every 2 weeks and struggle. It's all personal

  4. Thanks for your great videos. I learned a lot from you and lost a lot of weight.

    My cousin, who is a PhD physiologist, says that carb-ups should not go for a full 24 hours. She says that rather than having a 24-hour "carb day," we should have a 6-8 hour "carb window" every 7-10 days. I stopped my carb days and instead now have a 6-8 hour carb window once a week and I started losing more weight.

  5. Hey Scott.. Thanks for the information I think you're very funny seriously go to open mic nights at a comedy club i know you'll do well. I was 367 started cutting Sugars and grains also introduced IF.. Im now 350 just 2 weeks in. I was introduced to fasting by Dr. Jason Fung (he's great, check him out) but you serve me as a motivation i thank you sir

  6. Thought this was interesting: Was exactly what I've experienced…I don't drink coffee/caffeine often, so I don't have much tolerance with it, and when I do, I get a buzz…but I had been doing some hard LCHF/IF (which raises cortisol), then I had caffeine at 9pm, and went to bed at 1am. I was HUNGRY…The cortsol surge from the caffeine increased insulin increasing my appetite (although I ignored it), but I couldn't sleep (wired/tired) which led to more cortisol the next morning leading to more hunger. I find if I eat Low-GI/High fiber carbs (less insulin spikes) without sugar, I can tolerate caffeine better without the cortisol surge since gluconeogenesis from LCHF puts pressure on the adrenals to make cortisol which is absent in the present of carbs.

  7. Hi Scott
    I have been carbing it up quite a bit lately for some big workouts I've done. I can tell the difference in my hunger, like I'm hungry again (all the F**in time) I do think energy comes a little easier in the gym. I am looking to get back to low carb soon. I try to use "good" carbs mostly whole wheat & oatmeal but the cravings still kick. Keep up the good work!

  8. Great video! I may have some insight for you on the ketone strips. People on the Keto subreddit ( say the ketone strips are inaccurate because they report a delay in what your body is actually doing. Which is probably why you were still getting a "trace" reading on Sunday morning and why you weren't showing a reading at all a few days into getting back into the ketogenic diet. Apparently it takes a day or 2 to get all the ketones out of your pee when you stop the ketogenic diet, and vice vera it takes a while for them to show up when you start again, but that doesn't mean you're not in ketosis.
