Too Much Fat on Keto? – Why Keto Works – Healthy Ketogenic Diet


we all want to be a success especially
when it’s talking about things that have to do with our our lives our ability to
care for ourselves and do well in like I want to caution everyone there is a
process to weight loss there is a process to financial freedom
you need to respect the process hello everyone welcome to Mind Blowing Health
and Wellness with Violet I’m Violet I’m psychologist and the reason I make these
videos is because I want you to understand that your physical health and
mental health come together to create that overall feeling of well-being so
today’s video I want to talk about the process that we engage when we want to
do something like improve our health whether it’s mental health or physical
health there are steps that we need to take in order for us to feel better so
if we’re talking about our mental health there are things that we would have to
change about the way that we’re viewing the world the way that we’re interacting
with the world and the way that we’re thinking about ourselves and we’re
talking about our physical weight there are things we would have to change in
the way that we’re eating the amount of movement we’re doing and the way that we
see food if we don’t make those changes then we will go back to old behaviors
that we had before that’s just the way this works right it’s either I make
change and do new things or I fall back into my habits and do what I used to do
we have a tendency to look at someone who’s successful and say I can do that
I’m just as good as them I’m gonna be successful too and I think oh that’s
amazing if we’re being realistic about it but remember weight loss is a process
good mental health is a process I work on being mentally healthy every day
because I put in the effort in taking care of violet every single day are you
putting in the effort that you need to take care of yourself every single day
when it comes to weight loss and we see someone who says oh my goodness and this
is something we see all the time on online five months I mean I’ve said it
five months I lost 70 pounds right I’ve said that does that mean that
you’re gonna lose 75 70 pounds in five months not necessarily what’s really
important for everyone out there who’s looking at the amazing progress that
I’ve made over five months okay now we’re talking a year later but it took
me five months to get to my initial goal wait is this really important piece of
information which is this information how much information that I have quality
good information that I have to help me to get from point A to point B how much
commitment did I show to get myself from point A to point B how much time did I
invest to get myself in point A to point B the first thing I want everyone to
think about when you’re looking at someone successful and saying I want to
be like that person are you willing to put in the time effort energy that that
person put in to get to where they are because if you are very likely you’re
going to be successful what I consider a mistake that I see a lot of people
making is looking for some kind of mentoring program so someone to guide me
through and do all the work for me so I just have to follow these steps and
therefore I’m gonna be successful I am NOT saying that mentoring programs are
bad because I actually believe they’re very good that’s not my issue when
you’re looking for someone to just tell me what to do I’m gonna blindly do it
with my eyes closed and then I’m gonna be as successful as that’s not how this
works you see I am successful in my weight loss and my weight loss
maintenance because I actually understand what my body is doing today
the things that I didn’t understand over a year ago I didn’t understand why I was
70 pounds overweight today I absolutely understand why I was 70 pounds
overweight I also understand why I am at currently
at a good weight and maintaining if you don’t understand what your body is doing
then you can take the steps you need to take so I could tell you exactly what to
do and you could blindly follow but you’re
not gonna maintain why because you don’t know why you should be doing these
things you don’t know when someone presents you a piece of information says
oh but you know you can do this you don’t know that they’re telling you
something that’s taking you off track because you don’t actually understand
what your body’s doing see I’ve been presented with lots of information that
would have taken me off track that I didn’t follow because when I was
presented with the information for example that sure you could have refeeds
at once every week or once every week and a half is not gonna affect it
because I understand that reintroducing carbohydrates will absolutely take me
out of ketosis I knew that that information was false I didn’t follow
along what I’m trying to ask you to think about are you allowing yourself to
look at the information understand it so that you can make better decisions to
make this very clear I want to point something out if you had a mentoring
program that was gonna teach you how to open a business that was going to
succeed not might succeed going to succeed and in this business they tell
you okay so what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna open a restaurant and the
staff is gonna be yourself leading the staff and so basically your
head chef and all you need to do is follow their formula and you’re gonna be
rolling in the money and let’s say that you follow their plan to a tee do you
think that it’s automatically going to be a success if you don’t know how to
cook no you actually need the knowledge of how to be a chef if you want to be
the head chef and run a restaurant even if I give you all the details and give
you all the ingredients and they’re perfect if I don’t know how to use that
information properly this restaurants not gonna be a success if I don’t know
how to plate it so it’s beautiful so people want to come back right so it’s
not gonna be success it’s more than just having the data laid out in front of you
if you don’t know how to interpret the data if you don’t know how to use the
information to make it be what it’s supposed to be in the end
I’m not saying this cuz I wanna discourage people I’m saying this
because I want you to learn I want you to take the time to understand why
eating 20 grams of carbs or or less puts us into ketosis because the truth is its
eating 20 grams of carbs or less that puts us in ketosis not eating a lot of
fat and I keep hearing that and I keep reading that and I keep seeing that and
that’s not reality because if eating a lot of fat put us in ketosis we would
have all been in ketosis because guess what before starting this diet I
guarantee if you go back and look at how much fat you were actually eating you
were still eating more fat then you’re probably eating right now doing keto
well again if you don’t know that piece of information when people tell you that
you need to have a 70% or 80% fat percentage in your your doing it and
what’s happening your weight is staying high because that’s not what it’s about
I’m trying to encourage everyone learn how your body works so that you can make
better decisions so that you’ll know why does keeping 20 grams or less help me
which I’ll tell you because I want you to know this information our body wants
to have so it’s healthy when it has five grams of carbs circulating at any
particular point in time more than that your body will take it out it’s gonna
keep it homeostasis right that’s what our body strives for it’s gonna keep it
around by anyone who’s been spoken to about their by their doctor about
diabetes knows that when you get like closer to 7 you start to have to take
medication because your body’s not doing what it’s supposed to do so right we’re
trying that we’re aiming for 5 right when we understand that that’s really
what’s going on when we reach our goal what possible reason could we have for
reintroducing so many carbs that our body is again over 5 grams every day if
we really understand what’s happening why would I resume poisoning myself
I feel like people resume eating those extra carbs because they’re not really
taking in what it is that’s happening I want you guys to live a happy healthy
life I want all the Wellness lawyers to be into their 40s into their 90’s
feeling amazing and yet I have people top that I’m talking to who are in their
20s and feeling bad in their 20s and they’re depressed and anxious in their
20s and they’re diabetic in their 20s and they’re suffering inflammation and
are threat we need to understand how sugars affecting us there are certain
things in life that we can DIY your health your mental health and your
finance are not things that we di why those things have to be taken care of in
a very professional manner you need to act like you’re your own doctor your own
therapist your own you need to know why and you need to sort your own accountant
you need to know why you need to fix you want a DIY a table or DIY a shirt go for
it when it comes to your health your mental health your physical health and
your finance these are important things that we need to focus our attention on
and for all of those who reach their weight goal and then decide well now
that I look like this I can eat whatever I want again I want to caution you that
looking healthy but fueling your body with poor quality
foods that’s going to resume the inflammation that’s going to resume the
possible diabetes that’s gonna resume the potential Alzheimer’s or other
metabolic thing because I look good exterior but have fuel in me that’s
creating problems I’ll tell you that it’s better for you to be 20 pounds
overweight but eating really well and fuel yourself really well and having a
body that works well that doesn’t have pain and that’s using everything that is
supposed to use the right way then to look so look at the perfect weight but
be feeling yourself with poor quality foods
using diet pills restricting your eating to an extreme that becomes anorexic or
even binging and purging really those things are harmful it’s better for you
to be a little bit overweight but fueling yourself in a healthy way then
to be perfectly at weight end up doing it in a in a way that’s dangerous for
your body I need you to please take the time to take care of yourself to eat
well fuel yourself well let entertainment be being with friends let
entertainment be a good movie or an activity that you love to do a hobby if
you are lonely go find people if you are frustrated or having problems work the
actual problem out because food isn’t gonna solve that it’s important for us
to understand what we’re doing right it’s the information that’s gonna help
you to be successful so it’s the carbs being low that causes you to be in
ketosis not adding extra fat I really hope you found this video helpful please

kind of curious to know how many of you have been told that your fats need to be
high for you to lose weight on a ketogenic lifestyle let me know in the

  1. Hello Everyone, Thank you for coming by and watching the video. I really hope that you found it helpful. I want to let everyone know that I have a patreon account (https://www.patreon.com/VioletReveira). If you would like to contribute to the production of some of these videos and more research, you can find the information at that link.

  2. I have been told that about fats on Keto. My weight loss has stalled. I believe that between the higher fat intake & stress from helping my Mother with some major health issues, it has caused the problem.

  3. Violet I am a mess. I teeter back forth eating as bad and dirty . . . but because my body has been adapted for a few years now it (my body) rejects the bad stuff I consume. So it's pretty easy for me to get back on track. What I'm dealing with is "WHY" I get off track. I love the KETO food I eat. I just do stupid stuff and consume undesirables ONLY because it presents itself in front of me. I do have will power but knowing I can and knowing my body will push it right out . . . makes me dive right in.

  4. I heard that fats supposed to be 75% of the meal, or something like that. I always thought that I wasn't eating enough fats. I try to only focus on getting the carbs low. Sometimes I slip up. I believe that I need to keep a carb journal but then that's like counting calories, ugh. But since this finely put together video, I understand where I'm truly slipping. Thanks again for another great informative video, Violet. Your videos are on point and very timely.

  5. I have to respectfully disagree Violet. Fat is essential for fuel, hormones, brain function (70% of it lol), cells, fat helps make the stomach more acidic (a good thing) to absorb fat soluble vitamins and satiety just to name a few. Fat also plays an important role in producing ketones via the liver. Low carb high fat is keto, granted your carbs are low enough otherwise blood sugar goes up and ketones MAY be produced but won't be viable as the brain will take glucose before ketones from a life long consumption of high carb low fat and high sugar diet. At the beginning you want to eat 200g of fat a day to train the brain and body to make and use ketones. Lastly, if you hit a plateau, cut back on the fat a little to tap into your body's reserves along with intermittent fasting. Bowing out! 🙂

  6. This is one of your best videos. This topic of change is far reaching over many areas. If you do the work, research, study and so on you own the results, the change your want.
    Thanks so much.

  7. A mentor can guide and a support group can support but the WORK remains YOUR job. I too can maintain a healthy weight and remain in ketosis because I traded carbs for fat and I never looked back. Yes, I stopped cutting off the fat from the meat but, that's not really increasing my fat intake. I began getting 60% of my daily calories (1440) from fat which = a little less than 864 grams or 8 sticks but, seriously, no one is going to actually sit down and eat 8 sticks of butter. The "high fat" is relative to the other percentages used in the basic keto diet. Just zero out the carbs. Any amount looks huge compared to zero.

  8. I’ve heard that about fats, from all over the place. There’s a lot of info out there on how Keto should be done. I think of Keto, and I think about how I will be eating, what I will be eating, for the rest of my life. I don’t think a person needs 70% of their daily diet to be fats. They say your body will burn fat for fuel. But, I just can’t get my brain to accept that my daily diet should consist of 70% fats…every single day, for the rest of my life.

  9. This is an important message and a great video. However, the click-bait Image and title, which really don’t have anything to do with the video, is a little frustrating for me. I don’t think you need to click-bait when your message is so relevant and important. Just FYI from a long time subscriber.

  10. Yes…I have heard that fat percentage needed to be high to lose weight on keto, but then you hear all these people saying that they fast and eat one meal a day….very confusing and contradictory.
