That way I can help you excel your health and your life. In this video you’re going
to discover why you’re still fat after doing intermittent fasting. I recommend to a patients
all the time to do intermittent fasting. They all come back seeing great results but there’s
always that group. There’s the group that comes back and says Dr. Zyrowski I’m not
losing any fat, I’m not having any weight loss, I don’t feel any better, this intermittent
fasting stuff is not for me. So that’s when we sit down and we have the talk. Not the
talk basically is where we dive into all the different focus points where people will go
wrong with intermittent fasting. Why they don’t get results. Why their still fat.
Why they won’t lose weight. Why the weight won’t budge. So if you’re having this
issue or you’re someone who just wants to get better results with intermittent fasting
lets go ahead right now and have that talk. So let’s focus in on diet first. This is
where I see a lot of people go wrong because a lot of people use intermittent fasting as
a crutch to follow a lot quality diet. When you follow intermittent fasting and follow
a low quality diet in many cases you’re going to create metabolic instability and
you’re driving these hormones all crazy. You’re going to this fast where your driving
insulin levels low but then you’re spiking them with high sugar, high carb meals. It’s
not a good thing to do so intermittent fasting is not a crutch. A lot of people think I can
do intermittent fasting because I’m going into that fat burning zone and I can eat what
I want over here. It just doesn’t work like that. And so you want to make sure that you’re
following a good quality diet. I always recommend the low carb diet. This is a diet where you’re
eating 100 grams or less of carbohydrates. You’re eating a lot of good whole foods.
You’re doing no sugar, you’re doing no grains and you’re eating good delicious,
satiating meals that make you feel good. Now when we have people who are doing low carb
and they’re still not getting results and they’re being honest about doing low carb
and not getting results we go and look at different things. Some of these other things
popping up which we’ll talk about in a moment or maybe they have some metabolic instability.
In that case what we’ll do is we’ll go into Keto. Do 30, 60, 90 days of Keto, come
back out do low carb and in the meantime we’ll see some great results. Okay so diet is very
important. Double down on diet if you’re not getting results.
Next, calories in, calories out, too little too much. So this is a problem that people
have. Now it’s always interesting because if you look at the gym community like the
fitness trainers they’re always talking about calories in, calories out, that’s
all that matters. And then you look over to the other side of the spectrum and you see
the doctors and they’re saying it’s not so much about calories in calories out it’s
about what you’re eating, the quality of foods that you’re eating. And I’m kind
of right in between there because what I see happen with intermittent fasting is a couple
of things. First of all people are eating a high quality diet but they’re eating too
much of a high quality diet. It doesn’t matter how long you intermittent fast if you
are over consuming calories then you just aren’t going to lose weight. Now the other
problem that’s going to happen is some people because they’re doing intermittent fasting
and their packing all their meals into a short period of time they’re not eating enough
so if you’re doing intermittent fasting and you’re coming way under to a calories
deficit the problem is is that you’re going to crash your metabolism. These people typically
see fast results right away but then after that they just plateau and they can’t get
things to budge in either direction. So you don’t want to be over consuming because
if you’re coming in at a huge calorie surplus you can still do intermittent fasting and
gain weight. A lot of people do this simply because they go and their in that fasted window
and they’re so hungry when the meal time comes around they just stuff their face so
the first meal, between meals and even for the second meal. So we want to be right in
the middle. What I recommend is that we go and we track our macros for 30, 60, 90 days
and we really truly understand what we’re eating. We’re understanding the calorie
intake that we have on a daily basis because like I said if you’re doing intermittent
fasting and you are either under consuming or over consuming you’re gonna create metabolic
problems. You can’t come in at that huge caloric surplus and expect to lose weight
and if you’re going way under you’re going to crash your metabolism. So track your macros
for a period of time, you can easily get some different app calculators that are going to
help you do so and track your calories for a bit and you’re going to see great results
if that is the issue that you’re having. Next is metabolic instability. So there’s
a lot of things that come in to play when it comes to the metabolic hormones, metabolism,
how it functions. We look at these three major metabolic hormone players: insulin, leptin
and ghrelin. Now insulin is this hormone basically that is going to shuttle sugar into the cell.
If you have like pre-diabetes, if you have diabetes you have insulin resistance, essentially
you’re going to have a harder time getting results with intermittent fasting. The results
may just not come as quick. Now the other problem that you have is leptin resistance
or ghrelin resistance. Now leptin is basically the food suppressant. So when you go and you
are eating your meal leptin goes and tells your brain “hey, you’re full, stop eating”.
People who have leptin resistance don’t hear that signal. They don’t hear that leptin
signal and they just keep eating so it’s very easy for them to over eat and over consume
every single day. Now the people that have ghrelin resistance, this is the food initiator.
This is the hormone that basically says “hey, I’m hungry and we need to start eating because
I’m really, really hungry”. Some people, they’re just getting over stimulated in
that area so you can see what’s happening here. First of all, you’re not properly
shuttling sugar into the cell. You’re going and not being told by this hormone leptin
to stop eating. This hormone ghrelin just keeps being a gremlin and telling you to eat
constantly and this causes a lot of issues. So once again we’re doing intermittent fasting
we’re going to go back, double down on the diet. This is very important here. We’re
also going to go in and do a couple other things. First of all we can go in and make
sure we’re doing something like the Keto diet, which is really going to help create
that metabolic stability which I talked about over here. But also what we can do is we can
add some nutritional supplementation that not only helps balance insulin but also just
creates metabolic hormone stability across the board. I’ll put a link to the one that
I use. So if we have this metabolic instability first of all we have to realize that intermittent
fasting may take longer for us to get results. We can go in and do a diet overlook. We double
down on the diet, potentially follow the Ketogenic diet for a while. And then lastly we add some
different nutritional herbs and vitamins in order to help balance metabolic hormones.
And so that’s what we do here. Next breaking your fast. Ok so this is very
important because a lot of people need to do a reset. It’s very, very compelling to
go and find all these little things that you can do while fasting that won’t break you
fast. I get probably questions like “will x y and z break my fast” more than any other
question out there so a lot of people are trying to get creamer in their coffee. They’re
trying to get stevia and xylotomy in their coffee. They’re trying to add in all types
of different drinks and potion and powders and what happens is you can just create this
whole issue where you’re just basically breaking your fast every single day. If you’re
not getting results with intermittent fasting take a step back, get rid off all of that
stuff. Get rid of the apple cider vinegar drink, get rid of the supplements, get rid
of the powders, get rid of all of that stuff. Take a step back and go to water and things
like black tea or black coffee and then that’s it. That’s it when you’re doing your fasting.
And that way you can be sure that you are truly fasted during that time. Because it’s
very compelling to try to add in all these little sneaky things that won’t break your
fast, but if you have metabolic instability and you have some other issues it’s hard
to say what’s going to knock you out of that fast state. Just like somebody who is
pre-diabetic or diabetic is going to have a much different reaction to eating some simple
carbohydrates than someone who is metabolically healthy. So we want to make sure that if you’re
having a problem where you think you may be breaking your fast, get rid of everything
and just go strictly to something like water, sparkling water, coffee, black tea and stick
in that area. Any by the way, if you want a full guide to intermittent fasting, a complete
guide that teaches you everything, go ahead and click on this video right up here because
this video I did teaches you everything you need to know A to Z about intermittent fasting.
Last here is time. How long should it take? Now, one of the things I get all the time
is “Dr. Zyrowski, I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for like a whole 2 weeks and I haven’t
gotten any results yet so this clearly doesn’t work”. Okay so there are so many things
wrong with that statement. First of all you may just be one of these metabolically unhealthy
people. Maybe your diet is messed up, there are so many things that you have to be aware
of in this time. But there other thing is is that when you’re looking at these people
who are seeing huge results right, they didn’t do it 1 or 2 weeks. People who are having
massive weight loss transformations. People who are getting lean and ripped. In most cases
this has taken them months to years in order to get these results. So a lot of times we,
even myself, we want to get results so fast. We want them right now, we want them here
in the moment. But the problem is is that that is not reality. We have to realize that
when we look at intermittent fasting as a strategy in order to help us to improve our
overall state of wellbeing, lose fat, lose weight, get healthier and it is a time game.
It is something that we’re implementing in and we have to give it the time. And if
we can just stick to it over a long period of time we are going to constantly get healthier
and healthier. So be sure to give it the time that is necessary in order to lose the weight,
in order to get those results. So that wraps this video up. Go ahead and
