Rank #6: Keto: It's All About Burning Stored Body Fat!
Host Brad Kearns addresses some of the common misconceptions and misinterpretations of the ketogenic diet, instead of describing how to do it right and enjoy lasting benefits. This is a syndicated presentation of a Facebook Live event. Join the Keto Reset Facebook Group for more Facebook live eventsMost importantly, Brad relates a message from Dr. Cate Shanahan (author of Deep Nutrition and future podcast guest) that ketone production is triggered by the burning stored body fat, not ingested fat. Dang son, trip out on that revelation, for it will turn lots of the keto hype on its ear! When you eat any meal, or even snack on your keto approved treats, you essentially shut off ketone production. This negates the premise of the bacon and butter diet and the fetishes for high-fat coffee in the morning and fat bombs for snacks and treats. This is a little oversimplified, but it's helpful to reframe your perspective about keto to associated it with fasting, eating in a compressed time window, and eating in caloric deficit if you are looking to lose excess body fat. We talk about people having difficulty reducing excess body fat and the importance of following the multi-step Keto Reset Diet approach, where you start with 21-Day Metabolism Reset, enter a fine-tuning period, and finally conduct a focused 6-week period of nutritional ketosis. Fun questions come in from the Facebook crowd to keep the show lively.

Rank #8: Keto: Choosing Carbs Wisely (especially kombucha and chocolate)
Host Brad Kearns talks about carbs and keto, clearing up some misconceptions and focusing in on an assortment of food categories to help you strategize and stay aligned with ketogenic eating guidelines. First, we must recognize that keto is best promoted by fasting/starvation—this is our genetically programmed response. Keto is not about stuffing your face with fat throughout the day. When it comes to carbs, we can enjoy abundant vegetable intake, emphasizing above-ground, leafy green veggies and cruciferous vegetables. And while colorful fruits and starchy tuber vegetables have many nutritional benefits, we want to sideline these when doing strict keto stints.
We also cover how to choose the highest quality dark chocolate, habituating to the highest possible cacao percentage. You’ll get inspired to make your own kombucha (all you need is a friend with a SCOBY, and some sweet black tea), and watch out for the overly-sugared store-bought kombucha. Other categories include non-dairy milks, nuts, seeds, and their derivative butters, and packaged snacks that have ‘paleo/keto’ designation on them
Rank #9: Keto: Dr. Cate Shanahan
Oh yeah, you know those headaches that happen during a busy, sugar crash burnout day? This pattern can become a serious matter whereby you suffer from frequent mini-strokes when your brain is deprived of oxygen due to overconsumption of carbs and the brains over-reliance on sugar. Prominent author Dr. David Perlmutter calls Alzheimer’s “Type III diabetes” due to the close association between insulin resistance and cognitive decline. Good news shared by Dr. Cate is you can reverse early brain problems and stroke risk by transitioning to a more nutrient-dense, lower sugar, and especially keto-friendly diet. This is no funny business, as Dr. Cate offers the stat the typical western diet derives 66 percent of total calories from the big three main most offensive modern foods: sugars, grains, and refined vegetable oils. Dr. Cate is not afraid to call out entities like Harvard University for aggressively promoting nutrient-deficient diets for decades, spurred by corporate influences and the almighty dollar. This is highly disturbing, and greatly inspiring to take matters of health into your own hands.
Rank #10: Keto: Dr. Cate Shanahan: How to Become Cancer-Proof!
Dr. Cate Shanahan, the author of Deep Nutrition and Food Rules, pulls no punches when discussing how our conventional view of screening and treating cancer could be ill-advised. Referencing the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried, Cate explains that cancer is actually a metabolic disease, rather than a genetic disease. This implies that instead of aggressive chemo and radiation treatment to attack cancer at the genetic level, the dietary modification could be the most effective strategy. This aligns with Warburg Effect principle, which suggests cancer cells feed preferentially on glucose, at a rate greater than regular cells. The idea is that starving cancer cells of glucose with fasting and ketogenic eating patterns makes it possible to shrink tumors and heal. Cate tackles the big C question, our biggest fear: What would you do if you were diagnosed with cancer tomorrow? Cate says she would get to business with fasting and ketogenic eating, and head off to Turkey, yes Turkey!, to participate in cutting edge insulin therapy. While it might be unsettling to rethink the template strategy of cancer-fighting, Cate's commentary can help you reflect further about how your thoughts, beliefs, and food choices affect your overall health. Enjoy this discussion with one of the great leaders of the ancestral health movement, and be sure to read Deep Nutrition to learn the hows and whys about choosing the most nutritious foods that your genes expect for optimum health.

Rank #14: Keto: Dr. Anthony Gustin of Perfect Keto
Host Brad Kearns talks to a man on a mission - Dr. Anthony Gustin, co-founder of Perfect Keto and all-around health, nutrition, and peak performance expert. Dr. Gustin has been obsessed with healing people and promoting elite peak performance since a young age when he overcame illness and dysfunction as a teenager to become a doctor of chiropractic at the age of 24. After success with chiropractic and functional medicine clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area, Anthony started Perfect Keto to help give people tools to fight disease, achieve peak performance, and stay aligned with a ketogenic diet.
We learn about Anthony’s fascinating fast-track background, his devotion to daily meditation, to self-experimentation, and to pure hard work and grand ambition. Anthony indicates there is a wide variation in individual responses to keto and other dietary strategies. In particular, Dr. Gustin mentions that fasting is actually stress to the body, and might be inappropriate for certain folks who are already piling on other stresses, such as extreme dietary modification or extreme workouts. It’s essential to test and refine constantly to discover your best approach for right now. That said, Dr. Gustin reminds us that there are certain fundamentals of healthy eating and living that are undisputed. For example, “eat real food,” and “move more!”.
When it comes to ketone supplements, Dr. Gustin suggests there are a handful of higher uses: as a cognitive performance aid, as an adherence tool to prevent backslides and binges and suppress appetite, for athletes to get clean-burning energy, and for targeted disease prevention or care. One great insight from the show: Dr. Gustin believes that certain forms of suffering make us stronger. For example, his “zombie-like” ordeal of accelerated schooling helps him tackle any challenge he faces today with great resilience. This was an interesting insight coming from a millennial because we commonly typecast millennials as entitled. You’ll learn about keto best practices and much much more in this interesting show with Perfect Keto’s Dr. Anthony Gustin.
