We're back with another Q&A episode (yes, we're going to be doing these regularly)!
If you have a question for a future episode, submit them here https://robbwolf.com/contact/submit-a-question-for-the-podcast/
1. (3:00) Low Carb and Low Testosterone
Any ideas as to why when I switched to low carb, my SHBG shot up, and, of course, my Free Testosterone went down...not good! I heard a podcast between Asprey and D'Agostino a while back and Dave mentioned that he was seeing that in a small percentage of clients, but did not know why? Hence...any thoughts you can provide would be helpful.
Stay the course...!!!
2. (5:30) Can visceral fat go away without procedures?
My question is it possible for that visceral belly fat to go away or get smaller through my current course of action? Or is that only possible through outside tools and resources like cool sculpting? I realize that sounds pretty vain, but again, it's a big change for my body and I am not loving it at all.
3. (14:01) Keto diet and raised triglycerides
Huge fan of everything you do! I know you are super busy, but when you get a chance could you expand on keto and triglycerides? I am a 24-year-old male, 5'10 180 and about 15% body fat, very committed to weightlifting, yoga, nutrition, and fitness in general. I just got back a blood test and I had a raised triglycerides levels, about 220. I was wondering if I can do anything to lower this or if this is even bad. Anything will help, and I will be looking forward to your response.
Excited about your upcoming content and everything you do!
4. (17:51) Fasting
5. (23:11) Women and Keto
There’s lots of flys in here Tony reference:
6. (27:53) Fasting (answered with next question together in one)
What is allowed during a period of fasting? Clear broth, coffee, lemon water, and tea, just water, or some combination?
7. (27:53) Intermittent fasting and coffee with coconut oil/milk (answered along with previous question)
Does it take me out of fasting mode and, if so, how quickly will I go back into fasting mode assuming I don't eat anything? Blood ketone tests show that my ketones increase by quite a lot after drinking coffee this way but is it having a negative impact on weight loss because my body is burning the fat in the coconut oil/milk rather than in my body?
There are many conflicting reports and opinions (most mainly about BPC) and I can't find a definitive answer.
I found this site today which is the first one I've seen explained this way.
What's your take on it?
My main goal is improved health (as measured by improved sleep and improved cognition) which I'm hoping will translate into weight loss of around another 12kg's (lost 5kg's through keto since mid January '18).
