    Fun fact: kiwis contain more potassium than bananas

  • Joel Soto says:

    But eventually it will come back the muscle mass ?

    • calholli says:

      You don’t actually lose muscle mass.. You’re just losing water weight; just keep going and you’ll lose fat very quickly and melt away. The muscle is the very last thing to go; as long as you have fat to burn, you won’t burn muscle.

    • Jordan says:

      ​@calhollithat is true on keto you won’t lose muscle, but you can definitely lose it off keto.

    • calholli says:

      @Jordan Well I’ve done 6 day fasts and lost 22lbs and literally gained 5 lbs of bench in that same week. so I don’t’ understand this loss of muscle mass theory. If you’re obese and have plenty of fat and you’re 250 lbs.. You’re not going to lose muscle mass. Our bodies store fat for a reason and it knows how to use it when there’s plenty of excess.

  • Thumbelina says:

    Well I was a pretty big storage unit. Not missing the fat at all. Thank you sir.

  • Jason Rahimzadeh says:

    It’s not potassium. Keto sheds water.

    Good information πŸŽ‰β€

  • Joel Gandia says:

    I must be doing something right then because if anything I feel more muscular. 1 to 2 tsp of mineral salt people. Maca root gives loads of potassium. The rest I get from other sources of food. No keto flu, no muscle cramps, I’m sleeping well and I’m always in a good mood thanks to the nutritional yeast.

    • Tamitatangoto says:

      I buy the beats with the greens on it and put the greens in the freezer if I don’t use them right away, and then I take them out of the freezer and I don’t thaw them out. I just saute them in a little olive oil and butter they are delicious πŸ˜‹ and extremely high in potassium πŸŽ‰β€πŸŽ‰

  • Karen says:

    Keto diet is….

  • Sayvai says:

    So to gain back the muscle through an increase in glycogen stores, i need to increase potassium intake?

    I know the liver can produce glucose when required, and I’m very well hydrated.

    I feel I’m too lean (~56kg) and need to gain muscle, but it keeps getting flat too easily after frequent strength training.

    I’m now even eating wild / black rice on average once a day to increase carb intake with low GI/GL index values.

    Hey Dr Eric
    Really nice video. Btw I was wondering if you need help with edit on your videos and also make highly engaging shorts out of them.

  • Makeda Ankle says:

    Dr. Best way to lose weight is a balance diet and exercise. Drinking lot of water and less sugar and alcohol

  • MsCaryopteris says:

    Thanks for explaining my flat butt!! I need to get to the gym more I know, but I thought it was just aging and that the fat was hiding it. I actually got too thin and listless when I was trying to go carnivore. I never even succeeded in getting off fruit, let alone some veggies, but I suddenly dropped 3 extra pounds and felt awful. I added some gluten free grains just to get those 3 lb back. I have celiac and I guess I still don’t absorb like a normal person.
