Plant Paradox – Dietary Protein And Weight Loss – Dietary Protein Sources


Optimize Your Ketogenic Diet For Weight Loss Dr. Urban here continuing my discussion
of the ketogenic diet, dietary protein and weight loss plus dietary protein
sources. This video is part of a YouTube video playlist. There is a link to the
ketogenic low-carb diet playlist in the description below (in case this video is also part of another playlist. A second link in the descriptiion will take you to my
reference book, “The Plant Paradox” which outlines a revolutionary balancing diet
by Stephen Gundry MD. In the ketogenic low-carb diet video, I noted the
importance of the low-carb diet being extremely low carb with daily carb
intake of 30 grams of protein/day or less. Also, it is important to reduce the
protein intake as extra dietary protein will be changed to sugar and stored as
fat thus working against ketogenic weight
loss efforts. The Atkins low carb high protein diet gets the low carb component
right, but does not recognize the critical need to reduce dietary protein
as well. How much protein do we need? On page 182 of “The Plant Paradox” book, Dr.
Gundry relates that 0.37 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight is
the daily target. That’s not much protein. Dr. Gundry
writes that we recycle about 20 grams of our own protein daily. Likewise, our
greens and other vegetables have lots of vegetable protein.
Where do vegetarian elephants get their protein? From the greens. About
those essential amino acids. Your body recycles essential amino acids as noted
on page 183 of “The Plant Paradox.” I’m picking on the Atkins diet, because
it is an enduring low-carb high protein so-called ketogenic diet.
Thanks to Dr. Atkins for contributing to our understanding of dietary protein and
weight loss. Yet, if the Atkins protein intake is high, the Atkins diet may not
be ketogenic at all. The excess protein, whatever the dietary protein sources, may
cancel out the ketogenic component .The same goes for the paleo protein diet and
other high protein ketogenic diets. Remember these takeaways: 1. Carefully
select your ketogenic low-carb diet plan. Ratchet the carbs down as low as you can
go. 2. Reduce protein intake in a similar fashion.
Specifically resist the temptation to go keto high-protein. 3. Understand that
there are a lot of dietary protein sources. Remember and copy how elephants
get protein from greens. 4. Consider implementing the dietary recommendations
found in “The Plant Paradox” diet by Steven Gundry MD. “The Plant Paradox”
diet reveals other dietary considerations that if ignored, can
undermine your ketogenic otherwise low carb weight loss efforts. Dietary protein,
carbs and weight loss require careful consideration. Reducing protein intake is
the way to go. Understanding your dietary protein sources is crucial to successful
ketogenic weight loss. The next video is about plant lectins, plant poisons
greatly affecting your weight loss, diet and health efforts. That’s it for this
video. Subscribe to my channel as more health
videos are coming. “The Plant Paradox” diet is revolutionary and comprehensive. Get
the book and give “The Plant Paradox” a try. May it for work for you as
well as it did for me. I am NOT a spokesman for Dr. Gundry, just grateful
for the pronounced health impact of “The Plant Paradox” diet on my life.
