Carbs are the primary cause of high insulin—but there’s one type of carbohydrate that doesn’t spike insulin! Watch to learn more.

Let’s talk about the only carbohydrate that will  not influence insulin now as you may know insulin   is the hormone that makes you fat it’s the hormone  that prevents you from burning fat and it’s a fat   even a little bit of insulin it’s going   to be very difficult to lose weight and get into  ketosis so the only carb that

Has absolutely no   problem with fiber is it normally comes with   other carbs that do influence insulin as in the  bread pasta cereal crackers biscuits waffles   it has fiber but what about the other carbs that  are not fiber we want to stay away from them   now just as a side note pure fat will also not  increase

Insulin but what does increase insulin   is the sugar the starches and excessive amounts  of protein so is it just a matter of getting some   fiber maybe some metamucil on a spoon and then  pour some pure fat on it right no the type of   fiber that you need is in the non-starchy leafy  greens it’s in the vegetables and this

Is why you   don’t have to count non-starchy vegetables when  you’re doing the ketogenic diet as a part of your   grams of carbohydrate normally you want to keep  your carbs below 30 maybe 40 grams maybe even   20 grams but i don’t recommend even counting the  non-starchy vegetables like the salads and things   in

Fact unless you have some intestinal damage or  inflammatory condition that causes bloating when   you eat a lot of vegetables i recommend you do add  a good amount of vegetables as part of a healthy   keto plan and i’m talking at least seven cups it’s  not that much it’s like a nice sized salad but   what do these vegetables

Give you besides fiber  well it gives you minerals potassium magnesium   to prevent cramps when you start the ketogenic  diet to prevent keto fatigue when you start the   ketogenic plant also these vegetables have trace  minerals they’re loaded with vitamins like vitamin   c folate other b vitamins they have a tremendous 

Amount of phytonutrients which go beyond just the   regular vitamins and minerals phytonutrients are  anti-cancer anti-inflammatory and they will help   as the fiber in the vegetable that is the food   for your microbiome for your friendly bacteria  that’s what they eat and then they turn that fiber   fatty acid as in beta

Hydroxybutyrate which is a   ketone so butyrate made from your microbes is in  the family of ketones so microbes eat the fiber   directly going to help you lose weight because  they also help lower blood glucose they can   actually increase insulin sensitivity which will  then make it easier to lose weight which means  

Your body won’t have to make as much insulin and  that’s going to help your weight loss the fiber   also increases the diversity of microbes which  will have another positive effect on weight loss   go if you’re benefiting from any of my content   story please share it in the link down below
