Week 30 – Interview with Danny Vega

Video 30 Transcript:

Are you sick of watching everyone get easy results on keto while you can’t seem to get the freaking scale to move?

Watch today’s video to learn the 3rd big reason all of the cool kids seem to be getting BIG keto results, but you only seem to get fatter when you slash carbs and fill up on fat. 

If you haven’t watched videos 1 and 2 of this 3 part series, then you’re missing out on 2 of the biggest reasons you might not be getting results. I’ll do a quick review because these 2 factors play a HUGE role in reason number 3…but if you haven’t watched the full videos, then you’re missing out on valuable info that could be stalling your results.

I attempted a low carb diet many times over the course of my 2 decade stint in the dieting world. I could never stick to a low carb or keto approach because my body no longer processed fat well – which I’d say is pretty important when you’re focussed on eating fat for at least 75 percent of your daily intake. 

After decades on a low fat, low calorie junk diets made up of mostly processed carbs, my body pretty much had no idea how to digest the protein I now ate as the main part of my meal when attempting real food diets like low carb or keto. My body was so accustomed to that easy to digest fuel source I’d been giving it for so long, that it slowed production of stomach acid – which is a pretty vital component of life. 

Then the little bit of stomach acid I had left wasn’t enough to allow my body to digest properly, so I was told to kill the rest of this vital component of life with acid reducers. This resulted in a damaging cycle that wrecked my body for years to come. And I’m not alone in this mainstream promoted dieting cycle – so be sure to check out videos 1 and 2 of this series to learn even more. 

Now let’s get to the number 3 reason you’re not getting results on keto. You’re not eating enough to lose weight.

Wait, what?

I know, I know…we’ve been taught our entire lives if you want to lose weight, you need to eat less calories than you burn. We were also taught to remove the healthy fats we need to thrive and replace them with sugar filled substitutes. 

So how did that work out for you…I mean, if you’re not part of the industry who produces these cheap and profitable foods. For them – it worked out pretty well. For the rest of us…we just ended up buying larger clothes and more medications to cover up the symptoms that resulted from all of these sugar filled diet foods. 

We’re basically taking the same advice to eat less calories than we burn from the same sources who told us to replace healthy natural fats with fake processed sugar filled foods. Perhaps it’s time to stop listening to the people who want to fill their pockets with your money…and time to listen to someone who’s been there, done that…but has finally learned the truth. Not only have I learned the truth, but I have 100 lbs gone that also shows I’ve lived that truth. 

Too many of us are chronically undernourished. We exercise way too much and eat way too little to sustain a healthy body. Yes, eating way less calories than you take in works at first for some people, but by following this logic to the extreme like a lot of people do, you are destroying your metabolism. Your body is learning how to continually function on less calories, and therefore it will continue to require less calories to perform the same functions as it did before. 

But where does it end? If you have to keep lowering your calorie intake to keep up with your lowering metabolism, where does it end? Are you going to be eating tiny jars of Gerber to sustain your body because you really can’t eat another ounce to avoid weight gain? 

Nope…that’s ridiculous…but so are some of these experts who tell women that in order to lose weight, they need to eat the same amount as my 3 year old eats EVERY day. There’s no reason a grown woman should be eating the same amount as a toddler. Yes, they are growing, but most weigh less than 50 lbs. 

I get very passionate about this topic because it’s an industry lie that just won’t die. It’s the same industry lie I followed for 2 decades of my life. It’s the same industry lie that completely destroyed my health and made me miserable for 20 years of my life. When people try to collide Keto with Weight Watchers…I get angry! 

If you’ve been following this industry rule for much of your life as well, YOU NEED TO EAT! Your body has been stuck in this famine mode for so long where it conserves the nutrients you do eat because your body has become so accustomed to restriction that it wants to store every nutrient you have coming in as fat. It does this so you stay alive. 

If you just started keto, but you still have this strict calorie mindset, your body isn’t going to let go of stored fat. It’s going to keep storing the nutrients you do eat until it recognizes you’re bringing in enough food to function on a daily basis.

Women who eat 900, 1000 or sometimes even 1200 calories on a consistent basis aren’t bringing in enough calories to function. And there are experts – some that are actual doctors, who are still telling women it’s completely OK to eat only 900 or 1000 calories every single day to get results. 

Most 3 year olds eat more than 1000 calories each day. Does it sound normal to you that a grown woman can survive off of the same amount of calories as a toddler? And do you think her health is going to thrive following this protocol long term?

Absolutely not!

So what about those keto experts who say you need to eat low calorie so your body can live on its fat stores? Let me just add here, dear keto experts, that our bodies will NEVER tap into our stored fat when we’re not even taking in enough food to function. 

Eating a 1000 calories every single day is not enough calories for a grown woman to even get out of bed and sit around all day doing nothing. If you continue to eat this low calorie diet based on a calories in versus calories out model, then your body will never feel safe enough to let go of your stored body fat. It will hold onto your stored body fat for dear life because you’re barely taking in enough food each day just to go through the basic functions of day to day living. 

I see so many people who talk about being hungry on keto, or asking how to eat a high fat diet with a low calorie budget. Um, if you’re trying to make keto and Weight Watchers collide like that, you won’t last very long. You won’t see the same success as ketoers who learned how to listen to their bodies and eat fat to satiation.

The problem I see all too often when someone isn’t finding success on keto is they’re just not eating enough food – plain and simple. Of course, when you come from this brainwashed calories in versus calories out world, it can be hard to determine the right macros for YOU to find success.
