Keto vs Intermittent Fasting


intermittent fasting versus ketogenic
diet are they the same can you do one without the other
stay tuned and I’ll clarify for you hey I’m Dr. Sten Ekberg with Wellness For
Life and by subscribing to our channel you’ll learn everything that you need to
know to master true health what is intermittent fasting what is ketogenic
diet what is that all about well ketogenesis
is when you don’t eat carbs for a while your body learns to develop more
reliance on fat it gets better at burning the fats intermittent fasting
what is that well fasting simply means that you don’t
eat for a while so basically every night you’re fasting for however long you
sleep and the longer that you fast meaning you don’t eat something that can
contribute to blood sugar the better your body gets at developing a reliance
on fat for energy so you start accessing the body’s fat stores for energy and
part of that process is to create something called ketone bodies that
serve as alternate fuel for the brain the brain can rely on glucose or ketone
bodies the more that you avoid the sugar the more the body learns to rely on the
ketone bodies so fasting basically means starving and it’s a really bad idea to
try to starve yourself unless you have developed a little bit of keto
adaptation you if you gradually cut out the carbs so that you increase your
body’s ability to use fat now you don’t have these fluctuations in blood sugar
so if you start stretching out your fasting periods you’re not gonna feel
horrible and everything that you do you want to start thinking about having it
sustainable you want to create lifestyles you want to create do things
that you can sustain and starvation is not sustainable if you body relies on
carbohydrates if your blood sugar goes up and down
and you try to do a fast if you try to do intermittent fasting if you try to
avoid eating for a period of time you’re gonna feel terrible can you do it yes
with a lot of willpower you can push yourself through a period of time but
it’s not really a good idea because it’s not sustainable you’re upsetting your
body you’re not creating health and balance in your body so are they the
same thing not exactly but sustained fasting leads
to ketogenesis or keto adaptation and that’s just the more logical and
pleasant way to go about it because once your keto adapted once you’ve learned to
rely on fat for energy you can go longer and longer and longer and eventually
probably 18 to 24 hours is not a big deal because your body knows how to
sustain its energy level through that be sure to let me know what your

  1. Great video. Ketogenetic diet is a great diet. I have been doing it for awhile, lost weight and feel great. It is easy to fast after you have been eating a keto diet for awhile.

  2. So glad to find this video. I really want to find a very healthy sustainable regimen. I have found fasting has contributed to my erratic pulse. Can anyone explain this to me? I want to be slim and healthy, but the arrhythmia can be so scary. I had all my scans with no sign of heart disease.

  3. I find fasting way easier than following a keto diet. With keto, my body temperature goes up and I get a buzzing sensation in my head. Mind you, I didn't stick with keto for long, so maybe I would have gotten over it with time. But it just didn't feel right. The best thing about fasting is I only have to do it once or twice a week and I can eat anything I want the other days. I've also found that my overall appetite has decreased and I don't feel the need to overindulge on my off days.

  4. Is kaffe good for body when vi do fasting? Some of YouTuber said it can brake your fast. I living in Sweden and I must have many cup strong black koffe per day.

  5. Finally i know what they mean, How long does it take for my body to adapt to fats if i started today? Do i need to cut the carbs completely?

  6. Help!!!
    I only fast 13 hours a day. But my sleep down from 8hours and afternoon naps to about 5.
    Is it the fasting, or is it my lower carbs intake? And why 🤔🤔

  7. Thank you for precise, easy to understand videos! I love learning the science of how my body works! A question: I have been strict clean keto for 16 months and have lost 95lbs. I am now getting too hungry to fast more than 16 hours, when it was once effortless. I want to fast for autophagy, but the hunger is intense. Any insight or advice?
