In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to kill fatigue while doing intermittent fasting. Keto adaptation is when your body is adapting from sugar fuel to fat fuel and most people are experiencing fatigue during these phase because they’re tapping out of sugar reserves or glycogen stores but can’t tap into fat yet. But when you are already adapted and still tired it is a sign of nutritional deficiency. Doing intermittent fasting is actually running off reserves (bunch of nutrition of fat soluble and water soluble vitamins and minerals) – if you don’t have the sufficient quantities of reserve, that has to do with the foods or what you ate before you have started this process.
• Potassium / Salt or Potassium Sodium Pump – Potassium and sodium are involved in a pump that helps generate electricity and energy. Potassium is one of the most important minerals and is very essential in generating energy in the body.
• B1 – It is essential in helping the energy factories (mitochondria) produce energies which is called ATP.
• Don’t waste results on low quality food – Consume nutrient dense foods to build up your reserves.

Nutrient Dense Foods:
• Kale
• Salmon (Wild Caught)
• Grass-fed – Pasture Raised Organic Eggs
• Different Vegetables – Organic
• Nuts / Seed – Pistachio, Pecans, Walnuts
• Sea Food
• Organ Meats

Sleep – It is also important to get at least 7 hours of good quality sleep.

In this video we are gonna talk about how to kill fatigue while doing intermittent fasting. So many people are tired while they are fasting so we are gonna talk about exactly why that is and how to get rid of fatigue so you have a lot of energy. The most obvious is when you first start this and you are doing a ketogenic diet hopefully, and you are going to something called keto adaptation. And that is when your body is adapting from sugar fuel to fat fuel. Now most people are going to be tired in this situation because they are tapping out their sugar reserves, their glycogen stores but they are not quite able to tap into the fat yet because they haven’t build up the cellular machinery or the enzymes to really tap into that fat. So that comes a little time, sometimes it takes three days and sometimes it takes up to a week to be able to tap into your reserves and you have a lot of reserves. You have like a hundred thousands calories of fat sitting there unused and you are running of this small little tank of 15,000 calories of sugar everyday up and down, up and down and so when you start this and you are not able to tap in to the fat that’s when you are gonna feel fatigue. With time, that will go away but what I wanna focus on is what happens when you already adapted, you have done it for a period of time and you’re still tired. What’s behind that? That is usually a nutritional deficiency. So when you are doing intermittent fasting you are actually running off your reserves.
