Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting:

You can gain 3 pounds of weight from 1 pound of food. Why? Watch this video to find out.

0:00 How did you gain 3 pounds from only 1 pound of food?
0:15 Glycogen and glucose
0:53 How carbs increase weight gain

In this video, we’re going to talk about how someone could gain three pounds from eating a small meal—or less than one pound of food. What is the physiology behind this?

First, let’s talk about glucose molecules and glycogen. Glycogen is made up of a string of glucose molecules. For every gram of glycogen, you have 3-4 grams of glycogen. That means that “fat” is made up of 1 part glucose and 3-4 parts of water.

So if you consume 1 pound of carbs, you can retain 3-4 pounds of water. This means that the weight you’re gaining is primarily fluid.

If you get rid of the carbs and consume more potassium, the fluid will go away.

Before you go for the high-carb and high-sugar foods, remember that they can cause you to gain 3-4x their weight. Instead, stick to healthy keto foods and do intermittent fasting.
