So yes, it's great for weight loss – down to whatever your bones weigh, or less, if you're cremated. September 9, 2019 Reply Alfonso Sosa Amazing work!

I dropped a lot of weight – not because I wanted to, but because the food was just so disgusting that I would rather not eat. Besides most people tell you to eat only 30g of (net) carbs max.. you imagine how little calories that makes? you would need to literally drink oil to get enough calories because they also tell you not to eat too much protein either. I'm so glad I didn't stick to it for more than two weeks and came to my senses. September 9, 2019 Reply JHades Dev Dr Greger is bringing it to the Keto crowd, what a beating 😂😂😂 September 9, 2019 Reply Alexander Milandro Dude … you look sickly. September 9, 2019 Reply xxx xxx I want a Dr. Eric Berg vs Dr. Greger debate , I'd pay to watch it. September 9, 2019 Reply Citizenthirteen I have several friends on the Ketogenic diet . I tell them the science and the dangers but it is like talking to zombies . Their eyes glaze over , they get angry and tell me I'm wrong and mention some websites that promote it. I'm always up for some laughs so I went on them and they are shockingly disturbing . One actually recommends getting your cholesterol into the high 200's for " hormonal balance and that Keto is a good way to achieve this " Dr Greger , if you're reading this, why aren't you guys going after these dangerous websites or at least recommend the government go after them ? If there was a website showing how to blow yourself up , hang yourself or slit your wrists surely they would be shut down . How is this any different ? September 9, 2019 Reply QualityGains Dr. G BURNING the keto crowd with science, b*tch . September 9, 2019 Reply Natalie Clarke You heard it here first, no eating anything that begins with the letter D 😂 September 9, 2019 Reply Adnan A So complete fast > super low calorie diet September 9, 2019 Reply NutritionFacts.org This is the 4th of 7 videos on the keto diet. If you missed any, go to https://nutritionfacts.org/topics/keto-diet/ . -NF Team September 9, 2019 Reply RipeApple So the answer is no? Because the long term adherence is low? September 9, 2019 Reply Natural Hulkster There is too much science here for keto followers to understand. September 9, 2019 Reply Plants Tho I suppose since keto and fasting are being mentioned in his new book… then fasting is probably seen as a negative. Still can't wait for the vids on it though. September 9, 2019 Reply Steven L. When I read, ' is weight loss on ketosis sustainable?' I thought it was going to be about whether you keep losing weight and not hit a plateau which you do and that's when you incorporate fasting and calorie tracking. But if the question is whether you don't feel hunger then the ketards win on this point, BUT they wrongly rationalize it by arguing it's because your nutrition is satisfied. Now we know the TRUTH, it's the ketones that's suppressing hunger. September 9, 2019 Reply Aron Levin Is there any practical long-term health difference between eating 100% WFPB and, say, 90% WFPB with 10% of calories from meat? Assume the same healthy diet in both groups, but one eats a bit of meat everyday. I find it hard to imagine that a bit of meat here and there in an otherwise completely healthy diet and lifestyle would make much of a difference. Any literature on this comparison? Love your work. September 9, 2019 Reply RaisedByCats Weight loss is the wrong goal. Combining some form of exercise daily with a plant-based diet (95+% plant-based is ok), and intermittent fasting will give you tons of energy, you'll feel like a million bucks, and cut your risk of disease dramatically. Oh, and you'll lose a bunch of weight. September 9, 2019 Reply Steven L. "if you ate so few carbs to sustain brain function…" Keep this in mind when you argue/debate ketards 😂😂😂 September 9, 2019 Reply Allan Bruno Petersen Believing keto will cure you is like believing the earth is flat – in both cases you have to ignore mountains of evidence, while pointing to that flawed one thing that proves it for you. September 9, 2019 Reply Celina K 4:30 September 9, 2019 Reply Gabe 111 Keto the ego diet. They forget about the planet and the animals September 9, 2019 Reply VeganPatriot Shout-out to Jeff Novick and remember kids, just say NO to CRAP. September 9, 2019 Reply Aaron Kim I'm a nutrition consultant and most of my clients do better with GOOD QUALITY ingredients. It is the common denominator whether your a vegan or on a keto diet.If you eat grass fed grass finished protein or wild caught fish you get lots of great nutrients. If you eat organic non processed foods and fresh fruits and vegetables you get lots of good nutrients. I will say everybody has different needs. I have seen Vegans go Hypoglycemic due to dietary deficiencies and have also seen people on Keto struggle with their lipids. A balanced nutrition overlaps both ends of the spectrum. Nothing wrong with increasing fresh fruits and vegetables and having the appropriate amounts of good quality animal protein. It's all about quality and portions with enough exercise. Cant we all just get along?! lol…. September 9, 2019 Reply Jay and Vicky Yes! Another informative keto video. Can't wait for the next one! September 9, 2019 Reply Flaman83 I am pretty disappointed in this community. Not because KD is discredited but more how negative and aggressive the people here are towards people who are pro-KD. Being so happy to “shut KD-people down” instead of being happy that science is creating more awareness about safe en effective diets is astounding to me. Dr. Greger appears as a positive and well thought person. I wish I could say the same about some of the people commenting on this video. September 9, 2019 Reply Seamus Warren Where can I get injectable ketones to dampen appetite? September 9, 2019 Reply Shari T Excellent video…thanks for doing the research and posting!! September 9, 2019 Reply Joseph1NJ The doc should have a discussion / podcast with Dr Peter Attiahttps://peterattiamd.com/type-2-diabetes-reversible-scale/ September 9, 2019 Reply Reverend Al Greger didn't mention that the appetite suppressive power of ketones seems to wear off after a period of time. It's very sad to see people on the keto diet stuck in a plateau, unable to continue to lose weight, maybe even getting fatter on that horrible diet after six months or so. September 9, 2019 Reply DarkerSideOfDawn Dr Grieger .. love you love your videos THANK YOU!!! I can’t seem to find any info on if carbonated beverages are safe. Please tell me you have one 🙂 September 9, 2019 Reply buckleysdead Go Keto and lose your gains! September 9, 2019 Reply GetTheKnife Already 22 ketards disliked the video. September 9, 2019 Reply Bruce Leroy Just came for my daily dose of "you're gonna die if you…" September 9, 2019 Reply Anait Karagyezyan I would like to know information about alternate day fasting combined with plant based eating. Will this type of regimen help me to lose my stubborn fat and keep it off? Is there an scientific evidence that I will not harm my health and slow down my metabolism by alternative day fasting? I am a low fat plant based vegan woman who still struggles with her weight. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks! September 9, 2019 Reply James E Rush Yes it's sustainable. I started keto on October 2017 and reached my goal weight in June 2018. I've kept that weight off ever since. September 9, 2019 Reply AIL Ⓥ So it's 3:1 now in Busted myths vs. truth about Keto-diet. September 9, 2019 Reply yangtse55 I'm aiming to lose weight for the next 4 months or so, so I'm eating about 1200kcals of low fat whole plant food and am in deficit to the tune of approx 900 kcals because I'm burning 112g of body fat per day – does that mean I'm producing ketones ?I've noticed I have stronger body odour than usual. September 9, 2019 Reply Josh Spiv I tried keto once years ago. Lost a bunch of weight very quickly and thought low carb was magic. Turns out I was under eating and exercising more than before. Stomach pains started from being constipated. Started eating a more balanced diet of carbs and felt even better. Keto can be done sustainably, just not for most. September 9, 2019 Reply JimmyJJ Fantastic video. Really well balanced look at the issues around hunger. Thanks as ever for your work 🙂 September 9, 2019 Reply b please talk about fasting!!! i know it’s not good for you but does it actually detox the body? would love to know the science behind it all September 9, 2019 Reply MegaVegan So what have we learned, Ketoers? Keto only helps 4 out of 10 dieters with weight loss compliance (your 100lb weight loss story is admirable, but not special), but even those people would have lost more fat and kept more muscle on a low-fat diet. No freakin’ magic, no big pharma/food/sugar conspiracies, and no ‘ancestrally-appropriate proper human diet’ BS.

September 9, 2019 Reply Little Voice I was hoping for a comparison of meat based keto vs plant based keto September 9, 2019 Reply poopy_fingers Wait…so the vegan/7th day Adventist wanna be claims the keto diet is bad? Shocking!!! better not tell the 1000s who have had and continue to have major success with it. September 9, 2019 Reply Peter Rabitt Just ask Keto expert Jimmy Moore. September 9, 2019 Reply Peter Rabitt Spoiler alert, Keto isn't safe. September 9, 2019 Reply Silvah777 No dates?! D= September 9, 2019 Reply Beatnik Bandit Racing I like clams September 9, 2019 Reply Ali Salman The biggest issue with this series is that high carb and low carb advocates use separate metrics for health. Low carb prioritizes driving down glucose/insulin, and triglycerides while driving up HDL. Keto/omnivorous diets benefit from a better Omega 3:6 ratio in general and much higher access to DHA. Studies are mixed back and forth on LDL but most keto-advocates generally could care less about elevated LDL in the context of low CRP and good digestion. I generally push either vegan or keto either way you are pushing your body to make adaptations to more efficiently deal with your diet/nutrition. The choice comes down to whether you wanna be a fat burner or sugar burning specialist. September 9, 2019 Reply Aswin Lol Keto is just messed upI lost 15 kilos in two months I started eating carbs and gained 7 kilos in 3 weeks Need a lifestyle change not Fad diets like these September 9, 2019 Reply respeezy Used to think nutritionfacts was a credible soure for nutritional information. Its just cherry picking studies and out of context results for their vegan propaganda. I'm out peace. September 9, 2019 Reply NATUREMAN I was a vegan for over 1.5 years. All my blood tests came out ok except very high levels of triglycerides which was live threatening. I don’t eat refined sugars but complex carbs added to my high triglycerides. I looked into Keto and now I’m eating more fats, less carbs and still eat veggies. I dropped the fruits except avocados. I don’t think Keto is a long term solution for everyone but it’s the only way to get rid of my belly fat and triglycerides right now. I do intermitting fasting and don’t eat often like when I was a vegan. We’re not cows to eat all day long and humans are over eating because food may be cheap. Another thing, I don’t count calories because it’s mostly bs. Humans are supposed to only eat when they’re hungry. The cave man didn’t know anything about breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper. He eats only when he was hungry. September 9, 2019 Reply deanna b No, but a Keto diet will sustain cancer and heart disease and type two diabetes. September 9, 2019 Reply Mrs. Roper keto people mad cause they smell bad and stink up the bathroom and gotta spend a bunch of money on fabreeze and glade plugins. September 9, 2019 Reply Plant based life No matter what.. keto or no keto you need antioxidants. At least 10,000 to 12,000 antioxidant units a day. You’d never get that eating salad with sausage and beef. September 9, 2019 Reply Zenobia Aibonez The keto diet is not for everybody. Just like veganism isn't for everybody, and jogging isn't for everybody, IF isn't for everybody, gluten isn't for everybody, gluten free isn't for everybody and horror films aren't for everybody. September 10, 2019 Reply Iron Vegan It is good to learn more about this keto diet and its pros and cons. Thanks. September 10, 2019 Reply Mrs. Roper So THATS why people who fast, saying they're not hungry anymore, and that it meant they're "Cleansing" and that "a clean body doesn't need fuel" I heard this from the raw food community and the people who fast all the time. But that's because they're in ketosis, and being in Ketosis isn't healthy. September 10, 2019 Reply Misty Young Dr. Greger for the win! Thank you for your continued commitment to personal and public health. September 10, 2019 Reply Hulagu Kahn I can read just fine. Can we get the KISS version? September 10, 2019 Reply Saint_Somnia Thank you for these, my dad has been having seizures and was recommended a keto diet. I want to know as much as I can about it for him September 10, 2019 Reply Don Jabra √Thanks September 10, 2019 Reply The Artificial Society The biological desire to get a certain level of protein is a long standing fact. Higher protein diet generally means eating less. It’s called protein leveraging. However, as you raise protein, you raise your growth hormones. That, in turn, raises cancer risk and accelerates aging. You want a low protein diet, less than 10% of calories or lower. September 10, 2019 Reply ggzh a Argue With Everyone I think the "Do not eat anything that ends with a s" is a better diet. It does not exclude dill but excludes donuts, danishes and Doritos.

And, as I just found out, you have just reached half a million subs, congratulations!!! Keep it going September 10, 2019 Reply Dirk Dorony I did keto a few months before vegan past 2yrs and I think vegan+keto might be the uber-diet of all. Stick to all monounsaturated plant fats and keep up the nutrients and fiber with vegetables and I would think your arteries would stay clear, plus all the endurance benefits you hear about from keto ultra runners etc. I might try this one day, but I will miss all my blueberries and strawberries and granola! September 10, 2019 Reply The Social Blade Can you do some videos on the detox and lymphatic system? Thank you, your channel is great! September 10, 2019 Reply Balancing Life I asked my self this many times. Is it SUSTAINABLE. September 10, 2019 Reply Abc 123 What about the study that linked increased mild exercise with increased genetic male pattern baldness, while 20 mins of moderate exercise daily was linked to almost 0% genetic male pattern baldness? ☺️ September 10, 2019 Reply Kristen Blocker haha the new thumbnails. hopefully it builds brand recognition! The ppl need Dr. Greger and EVIDENCE based nutrition! September 10, 2019 Reply Leighann D Keto and former vegetarian and powerlifter….never felt better! September 10, 2019 Reply Scorp1u5 I think all the videos (and studies) so far have missed the point. The proper way to use a ketogenic diet is to get into ketosis, which will rise and stabilize glucagon levels. Once this has happened, you can stop with the high fat and then you'll be eating far less calories, but you'll still feel satiated. However continuing the dietary restriction of NO carbs ensures that glucagon levels remain high. At this point you'll actually be able to miss multiple meals for days at a time with no discomfort. (I used to go entire weekends without eating anything.) Get the glucagon up and level, eat protein and fat rich salads to feel satiated, then drop the caloric dense foods leaving only veggies and cheese. It was fantastic. I think that if more vegetarians/vegans restricted carbs it'd be an even better diet. They key is glucagon!

September 11, 2019 Reply luna57 Another good question would be "is WFPB sustainable?" Just take a look at a lot of the posts on the McDougall forum by people who have struggled with complaince over the years, or any of the many bloggers and youtubers who quit eating plant based. The only good diet is the one you can stick with forever, and that might be WFPB or it might be low carb. September 11, 2019 Reply JadeMusic Not sustainable. I lost a lot of weight, but as soon as I introduced too many carbs, the floodgates of Hell opened and I couldn't regulate my appetite. Then I wanted to "Eat all the things!" 😒 September 11, 2019 Reply Emma Leyva I just ate some rice and beans. My blood sugar is 180! September 12, 2019 Reply kingmike40 One way to measure if a person is eating enough fruits and veggies is the size of their bowel movements. September 12, 2019 Reply Kyle Hill I did Keto Lite, it’s 60 carbs, 15 grams of sugar, no fried or processed meats. You can have 1-2 fruit servings a day but everything else must meet that total at the end of the day. September 13, 2019 Reply Nathalie Jolivert I can't. Didn't even want to comment.
