2019 most controversial: Donít believe the keto hype | Jillian Michaels
 

 




Big Think
Dec 23, 2019


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Big Think's most controversial video of 2019 stirs the pot of the keto diet debate with fitness and nutrition expert Jillian Michaels, who asks: Are keto diet advocates selling people a falseóor at least a selectiveómessage?
The keto diet increases fat and protein intake while dramatically reducing carbohydrate intake to about 20 grams a day or about 80 calories worth of carbs out of what could be anywhere from a 1600 to 2500 calorie diet per day. That throws your body into a state of emergency called ketosis, which burns fat fast. Michaels' main critique of the keto diet is that there is zero calorie restriction, it cuts out nutrients and digestive enzymes from fruits, and that it's high in animal fats and animal proteins, which negatively impacts telomeres, oxidative stress, and may increase inflammation. Michaels stands by the effects of regular exercise and what she calls a "commonsense diet": don't eat too much, eat real food and get a range of macronutrients.

TRANSCRIPT

JILLIAN MICHAELS: How do we really decipher the thousands of studies that are out there on all of these diets? And the problem is what people will do to try to sell you a false bill of goods is take one study and blow that study out as though it's the entire picture, when of course it isn't. Imagine you have a massive painting but I only showed you this tiny piece of the painting but you had no idea what the hell else was going on over here there, there's no way you could get an accurate read on if this is a sad picture, a happy picture, like there's no way you could know, correct?

So when we look at keto here's why we're saying, or not me, but here's where some of the advocates are espousing benefits. Well, what are we doing with keto? We're removing carbohydrates, anything that elevates you got about 20 grams of carbohydrates a day that you're ingesting, which is essentially nothing, it's about 80 calories worth of carbohydrates out of what could be anywhere from a 1600 to 2500 calories a day diet so that's nothing. And it throws your body into a state of emergency that's what ketosis is. And because we don't have any glucose or glycogen, any blood sugar or stored blood sugar, we turn to fat quickly. We produce ketones and the idea is we burn through fat and we lose fat fast. And that is true and you would think that would be a good thing. And in addition, people will say well I reversed my type two diabetes. Of course, your insulin level was through the floor, you're consuming zero carbohydrates so you have no blood sugar so your pancreas is not releasing insulin. And this can also affect conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome and by virtue of that connection, it can also affect fertility. Fair. Let's give it that.

But here's what we're not talking about, there's zero calorie restriction on a ketogenic diet so you have a massive amount of oxidative stress, there's no consideration of timing with regard to food so your autophagy process is totally out of whack

In addition to that, it's very high in animal fats and animal proteins. So we're seeing that diets rich in saturated fats are poor for our telomeres oxidative stress, increased inflammation, your nutrient-sensing pathways that are related to the health of your metabolism are overrun with constant food, heavy fats, lots of animal protein and we know it hurts your telomeres and on and on and on.

Now, what about the benefits? Is it worth it? Let me tell you, the number one way to sensitize somebody's body, again to insulin, is exercise. I've been doing this a heck of a long time...

It's true though. Keto isnt for everyone. Alot of people get into it and it doesn't turn out how they expected. It works for a good number of people. But it also turns out bad for some. People need to keep in mind that low carb will effect blood sugar. Everyone's not as effective at using fat for energy as everyone else. Some people convert really well and some can't. Low carb can also cause high cortisol and adrenaline levels throughout the body. You also lose electrolytes because of the low insulin. Dehydration is another risk with keto. This is why people on keto have to get alot of salt, potassium and magnesium. You also need lots of water. It takes more energy for the body to break down protein.

Keto can also put a strain on the liver and clog you up because of all the protein and fat. People don't always count up all the costs with Keto. It may feel good in the beginning then turn on you. Then again, you may be able to do it the rest of your life without problems. People are different.

Honestly, the best thing to do pound for pound is to just eat a well balanced diet.

I was on keto and lost 45lbs. Was feeling good and then holidays hit work schedule got crazy and wife got pregnant (she would cook all meals since I was busy) messed up one day had too many carbs. Next day I felt like trash more carbs and it just spiraled from there. I tried getting back on track but after Keto I have even less energy sh*ts crazy. Once carbs came back in was like a shotgun blast to my energy levels. Now gained all the weight back and it’s been a struggle to get started again on just eating better (wife still pregnant doesn’t help) and working out. I think like you said all these diets where you gotta be restrictive heavy of certain things don’t work. Just making overall better choices cutting out junk where you can and working out is a better long term solution. That’s what I am aiming for this year.

I was a little chubby and lost about 20 pounds with Keto. Did it last year for about six months. When I came off I gained 35 pounds. It seemed to work well for me but one you start eating carbs again the weight raxksnupnreally quickly.
