If you are new to Dr. Berg’s channel, this is the first video to watch. Dr. Berg talks about the basics of healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting.
What is Keto or Ketosis?
• Keto means fat burning
• When you burn fat, the fat breaks down into what’s called Ketones where the body can use it as an alternative fuel, a much better fuel-source than sugar fuel.
• Healthy Ketosis is a version of regular ketosis based on a principle where you have to “Get healthy first, then lose the weight.” And “get healthy” means related to eating healthy high quality foods that is providing all of your nutrients.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
• It is a pattern of eating and not eating. Instead of doing 3-6 meals a day and snacking, you are eating less frequently because every time you eat you raise the hormone called Insulin.

Hi Guys! Listen, I have 2500 videos on YouTube, 2500. So sometimes when you go to the channel it’s hard to find where to start because it’s all random, so I wanted to create a beginners video, the basics. So if you’re new to my channel, if you have friends and family members that are new to my program this is the first video to watch. So let me just break it down and make it really really fast. Keto or ketosis, what does keto mean? When you burn fat, your fat breaks down into these things called ketones, your body can then use those as fuel. So your body can actually run on ketones. It’s a much much better fuel source than sugar fuel that most people run on. It’s a cleaner fuel, it creates a lot of other benefits, which I get into in other videos. So keto basically means you’re burning fat. Healthy keto is a version of regular ketosis but with a twist. A principle that I use is you don’t lose weight and get healthy, you have to get healthy first to then lose weight. So getting healthy basically means in relationship to eating providing all of your nutrients, so you’re eating foods that are high-quality that provide all the nutrients so you get the requirements that our bodies need. So what I recommend is something called healthy ketosis. Alright? So that’s the version. The other action that I recommend is something called IF, what is that?That’s intermittent fasting. It’s not a diet, it’s a pattern of eating and not eating. So instead of doing three meals or six meals a day, or snacks in between the meals, you’re eating less frequently.Why? because every time you eat, you raise a hormone called insulin.Too much insulin is very dangerous in the body.
