In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the ketogenic diet, women, and hormones.
1. Decrease insulin – when you decrease insulin by doing intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet, you are instantly enhancing certain fat burning hormones. Insulin is a fat burning hormone and it has the power of preventing the fat burning process. In the presence of insulin, all the fat burning hormones are nullified.

By lowering insulin, you enhance these certain hormones:
• Thyroid Hormone
• Growth Hormone
• Glucagon
• Adrenaline
2. Increase bile production – it helps to convert the inactive form of T4 to the active form T3. It also increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
3. Increase dietary fat – provides the raw material for steroid hormones.
4. Decreasing insulin will also decrease PCOS.
5. Running your body in ketones greatly supports the brain. Ketones are neuroprotective.
6. Decrease pancreas stress.
