In this video, Dr. Berg talks about one of the best protein and fat sources that you could consume in a ketogenic diet plan, the wild-caught fish. It has amazing amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, complete protein, and is easy to digest. When doing the ketogenic diet, it is important to get the quality fats and salmon is one way to get it but just make sure that it is always wild-caught.

Chronic consumption of farm-raised salmon:
• Increase visceral obesity
• Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
• Obesity
• Low grade inflammatory condition

Two Types of Good to Consume Salmon:
• Atlantic – 95% of the Atlantic is farm-raised but make sure it is wild caught
• Pacific – much more likely to be wild-caught
Coho/silver, Sockeye, Wild Alaskan, King/Chinook, Pink, Chum

Do you realize that in a ketogenic diet, wild-caught salmon is one of the best protein/fat sources that you can consume? It has amazing amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids, complete protein, easy to digest, if its wild caught. Now there is a study yes it was done in mice but I’ll put a link down below you can check it out. Study involved in chronic consumption of farm-raised salmon dramatically increased visceral fat. That is fat around your organs in the middle part. Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, it creates obesity and a low grade inflammatory condition and they detected that it was the pesticides, dioxins and PCBs in the product that did it. Now, when you are actually searching for salmon and you want a good salmon, there’s two types; Atlantic and pacific. 95% of atlantic is farm-raised. So it has to say wild caught and you are not gonna see an organic certificate because they don’t certify fish as organic. Now pacific is more likely to be wild caught. So if says wild alaskan salmon, it is totally fine. Coho, Sockeye, King, Pink, Chum, these are all real good to consume right here. You can also do it in the can, just make sure it is wild caught. And they say its fresh, that is meaningless, that doesn’t mean anything, “Oh we sell fresh fish. right” And when it says flashed frozen it just means that they freeze it right away which is totally good. So when you are doing a ketogenic diet, it is really important to get the quality fats and Omega 3 is what most people were missing. Salmon is one way to get it, there’s other fish you can do but just make sure it is always wild caught. Thanks for watching!
