In this video, I want to talk to you about lean meat or low-fat protein on a ketogenic diet plan and why it is NOT a good idea.
Consuming lean protein could cause protein starvation. Anytime you’re consuming protein on the keto, consume it as a whole food (with the fat).
Examples of lean protein: • Skinless Chicken Breast • Turkey Bacon Protein starvation symptoms: • Diarrhea • Headaches • Fatigue • Low Blood Pressure • Slow Pulse Rate • Hunger – Can’t be satisfied with protein
The truth about ultra low-fat protein:
• Whey protein is not a natural product. All of the fat has been removed. • It takes certain nutrients to metabolize protein—consuming lean protein could create nutritional deficiencies. • Fat triggers bile.
So if you’re not consuming enough fat, bile will dry up, and it will increase the risk of gallstones.
• Fat is important for the brain, nerves, cell membrane, endocrine system, and immune system. • Fatty fish/meat is the best protein source.
