Dr. Steven Gundry discusses the principles of his ketogenic program, which focuses on achieving metabolic flexibility by unlocking the keto code through mitochondrial uncoupling. By wasting energy properly, the program makes a ketogenic diet more enjoyable and easier to follow, even for people with metabolic inflexibility. He further explains that ketones can uncouple mitochondria and are not just produced from a high-fat ketogenic diet. Intermittent fasting or time-controlled eating can optimize mitochondrial function, and his program talks about using MCT or goat and sheep cheese, instead of expensive special drinks, to generate ketones. Gundry shares testimonials of patients who have successfully seen improvements in their health through his program, and he emphasizes the importance of educating healthcare professionals about his approach.

  • 00:00:00 confusion around what the keto diet actually entails. The traditional keto diet was developed in the 1930s as a treatment for epileptic children and involved an 80% fat, 10% carbohydrate, and 10% protein diet, which was 50% effective at reducing seizures. However, it fell out of favour with the advent of anti-seizure drugs but has seen a resurgence in recent years with the discovery that giving children medium chain triglycerides at a lower fat dose, alongside more carbohydrates and proteins, was still effective. However, an 80% fat diet is incredibly boring and restricts carbohydrates, which is why up to 60% of keto dieters quit, and children on this diet can have growth retardation and poor muscle development.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, Dr. Steven Gundry discusses the principles of his ketogenic program, which is both easy to follow and effective. He profiles one of his patients who lost weight, reduced her pre-diabetes, and cholesterol numbers. Moreover, she was so successful that she even wanted to start gaining weight. Gundry shares that in his book, "The Keto Code," he unlocks the reason why some people can eat anything and not gain weight while others struggle to keep it off. He explains that it is due to "metabolic inflexibility," which means that overweight people have mitochondria that are unable to process calories and store them as fat. Meanwhile, the mitochondria in skinny people have learned how to waste a lot of the calories they eat. The whole principle of unlocking the keto code is to teach people how to waste energy properly and achieve metabolic flexibility, making a ketogenic diet more enjoyable and easier to follow.
  • 00:10:00 on in our cells, and they damage our mitochondria. When we eat, insulin is normally elevated and sugars, proteins, and fats are ushered into cells where they are used as fuel. However, many people, including 88% of overweight individuals, have elevated insulin levels, making it difficult for them to access the fat stored in their cells for energy. Additionally, a high-fat diet may be counterproductive since it provides double the amount of calories by weight compared to carbohydrates and proteins. To hack insulin resistance, there is a way to trick the system without resorting to a high-fat ketogenic diet. It involves targeting the mitochondria and coupling the food we eat with oxygen to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency that our cells use, in a more efficient way.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, Dr. Steven Gundry discusses mitochondrial uncoupling where 30% of the calories are wasted due to the production of heat. Ketones are not a super fuel since even at full ketosis, only 30% of the energy needs of our cells can be met with ketones, and the brain still requires glucose for its fuel. However, ketones have amazing properties since they uncouple mitochondria further. Even if you’re not eating a ketogenic diet, there are other substances in the food that can act exactly like ketones and uncouple your mitochondria. Dr. Brand discovered that in the presence of ketones, mitochondria actually waste fuel.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, Dr. Steven Gundry talks about how the mitochondria become profoundly inefficient when glucose is not available. Instead of becoming like a Toyota Prius, when fuel is unavailable, the mitochondria by ketones are instructed to become like Ferraris. This is because the process of making energy is harmful to mitochondria, and when ketones are present in the body, they instruct the mitochondria to protect themselves at all costs. At the same time, ketones instruct the mitochondria to make more of themselves, as they carry their DNA and divide within a cell without the cell dividing. The mitochondria are also instructed to repair any defects or damage that has been done to them to produce energy effectively. Finally, Dr. Gundry mentions that uncoupled mitochondria are the key to longevity, and the oldest living human beings had the most uncoupled mitochondria.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, Dr. Steven Gundry discusses how intermittent fasting or time-controlled eating can optimize our mitochondrial function by compressing our eating window to six to eight hours a day. By doing so, we can have all the food we want while still losing weight and improving mitochondrial function. In his new book, Unlocking the Keto Code, he walks readers through an easy way to transition from three meals a day to two meals a day in just five weeks, and he shares information about the foods that uncouple our mitochondria to promote longevity. He also briefly addresses the concept of "hard ketones," an alcoholic drink that produces a ketone-like compound upon consumption, though he expresses no opinion on it.
  • 00:30:00 In this section of the video, Dr. Steven Gundry explains that one can generate ketones easily by having MCT or goat and sheep cheese instead of spending on expensive special drinks. He also talks about how some people have benefited from his program and its results, with many patients reporting to have improved their health without taking statin drugs. Gundry shares the story of a patient who has high cholesterol and has been following his program for two years. The patient runs LDL cholesterol of 350 and total cholesterol of over 500 but had zero plaque in his coronary arteries due to his program.
  • 00:35:00 In this section, Dr. Gundry shares a testimonial of a patient who successfully cured his coronary artery disease through a diet and supplements, despite the cholesterol theory still being widely accepted among cardiologists. He emphasizes that educating healthcare professionals is crucial, as he has been helping patients for over 25 years and has seen success through his approach. Dr. Gundry ends by thanking his viewers and expressing his dedication to their health and well-being.
