10 & 2 Qs: Does Dairy Affect My Hormones?


Dairy is the contentious topic. Prohibited at paleo but logically at keto… exactly what exactly do you really do?

Well, like anything else, it’s highly nuanced and depends on YOU.

Take a look at this short video to hear my ideas on milk:

Some think grassfed butter would be the drink of gods. More keto people are loading upon buttered coffee, cheese-laden meals, and heavy whipping cream… but does that help you reach your objectives? What does all of this milk do to IGF and your hormones? Listen to learn!

Full Transcript: 

Nicki: Ok, Robb. We’ve got a wonder about dairy, in particular, lotion. Beyond the complete fat organic beautifulness that is non-homogenized, but more specifically about the metabolic properties and health implications.

Robb: Oh, guy. Cream is tastes great. It’s very calorically dense. We’ve seen plenty of people get themselves in the pool’s deep end by just overconsuming lotion.

The objective is that a low carb or ketogenic diet for fat loss and body composition. The man or woman is struggling, we be in, poke around, look at their meal program, plus they re doing a quarter cup of lotion four or five times all through the day, setting some java in it.

There are some cool components to jelqing cream and butter. There is a vitamin K inside it. But by the close of the day, it’s a really compact calorie source, and also you also don’t really get whatever else. There s maybe not vitamins.

Nicki: exist any problems, hormonally with IGF and stuff that way?

Robb: perhaps not really because the majority of the driver from IGF response around dairy, is by the protein. That’s a interesting story.

Pedro Bastos can be a absolute expert in this spectacle. They should definitely check him out if folks neglect ’ t follow him.

But traditional cultures an average of cultured their beef. It modifies the proteins that you simply don ’ t get as potent of an IGF response, by doing this. Even then, it’s all kind of context driven. People today freak out about that and so they freakout about mTOR.

If you are overlaying elevated IGF degrees, also an over-fed environment, also poor sleep, and a hyperinflammatory answer, then you’ve got problems.

I figure one of the Public bugaboos around whole butter and cream in particular with regard to dairy is, there are people who happen to be … among these people …

I’ve a FOXO mutation that the saturated fat, in general, will drive up my lipoproteins. There’s all types of pissing matches and contention around whether the raised lipoproteins. It s perhaps not wholly clear what the story is with this.

There’S-A reality that if I shift out butter and cream, and I do more nuts along with mono and fats from an olive oil, then my own lipoproteins and cholesterol simply hastens. It might possibly be the difference on the mono bottom bargain between 1,100 or 2,800 with respect to count on the higher fat levels that are saturated.

The hormonal reactions, I’m not really worried with that on any level. Excellent pickup on the IGF. But I’m worried about cream and butter by the dearth of density, by the load, and also there are a number of people that get an elevation in lipoproteins.

I suspect again that cholesterol lipoprotein story goes to be somewhat individual, concerning whether it increases cardiovascular disease risk. But it’s certainly some of those ideas to be aware of, about that which you do also you’re able to make an educated decision then.

Nicki: And so, if you’re none of those who reacts like you to saturated fat, and if you’don’t doing a quarter cup three times each day, having a small dab on your java each day is not the ending of the world.

Robb: Yeah, yeah. I mean no huge deal. Yeah.
