---------- Key Timestamps-------------------------
04:25 We have to pee ourselves into good health. Dehydration effects energy, blood sugar and mental equity.
05:16 Get good sleep and develop good sleep habits. Every hour of sleep before midnight is the equivalent to 3 hours of sleep after midnight.
06:09 Focus upon getting deep sleep.
07:21 Focus upon digestive hygiene/environment. Eating is part of our parasympathetic nervous system.
08:32 Meat has many benefits, but you need to digest it well. It takes a lot of stomach acid to digest meat.
11:06 Chew your food slowly and well. It helps you absorb more micronutrients from your food.
12:39 Eating is inflammatory. Higher micronutrient absorption with less food gives you less stress and inflammation in your body.
15:09 The dawn effect is when your fasting blood sugar is high in the morning. It is normal for many people on a ketogenic diet.
16:08 Regular bowel movements can be a challenge for those of us on a ketogenic diet. This increases our inflammatory state. Food needs to leave within a 12 to 24 hour window.
17:35 You will need more salt on a low carb diet because your body excretes more sodium/salt. Salt also helps regulate bowel motility.
18:52 Drinking a gallon of filtered water by noon, Dr. Jockers finds that it clears out his bowels and flushes out inflammation from his joints and liver.
19:49 Magnesium is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies, especially if we are stressed. If you have blood sugar imbalances, you will use more magnesium.
21:12 Your thyroid probably produces enough T4. Issues often occur with the conversion of T4 into active T3.
21:45 To address the thyroid, we need to address the liver, the gut and inflammation. Thyroid hormone is important for gut motility.
22:26 Backed up bowels stresses the liver, making the conversion from T4 to T3 more challenging. Liver is the site of ketogenesis.
24:44 Find the right carb cycling ratio for you on your ketogenic diet.
25:00 After stress reduction and other things have been put into place, Dr. Jockers starts his patients with a month of low carb. Then they experiment with carbs.
