Low-Carb Beats Low-Fat

Video taken from the channel: CBS

A new study published today in Annals of Internal Medicine found that when people followed either a low-fat or low-carb diet for a year, those who cut carbs lost. In a small clinical trial of obese adults, researchers found that those assigned to follow a low-carbohydrate diet lost more weight over a year than those who followed a low-fat plan. By the one-year mark, people in the low-carbohydrate group had lost an average of almost 12 pounds. That compared with only four pounds for the low-fat group.

In their view, this is partly because a low-carb diet is more satiating than a higher-carb diet, thereby restricting overconsumption of calories, and also because they assume that it is primarily carbs that promote fat storage within the body.

  • I am a 66year old female who lost 19 kilos after a gastric sleeve surgery. I found it hard after that to lose any more. After going Keto about 11 months ago I managed to lose the rest, a total of 33 kilos. I would never go back to eating any other way because I feel so much better physically and mentally. Pico from Queensland Australia

  • Wtf these people have no ideia of what they are talking about…Any decent low carb diet includes lots of veggies and a few fruits –

  • Im 15 and wanted to tone up for summer. I play football so i run and work out 4 times a week plus maybe a run on the weekend. I restricted my carb intake to little as possible, which was probably 10 to maybe 20 carbs a day. With the running and working out plus the low carb diet i had going on i lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. Not saying this video was wrong, just saying i myself experienced different outcome.

  • They lie so much about the calorie counting. I do LCHF but I do it to build muscle and gain weight. I eat 3000 calories a day and exercise moderately and still lose weight, but I have built or maintain muscle mass. Strange huh.

  • This is good info.

    But comes short from explaining it full.

    Example isRay Audette author of Neanderthin. Dude eats over 6000 daily, including 1 lb of Bacon for breakfast..

  • @ConcreteRiver Paleo is all about cutting processed crap and allergens, increase vegetable intake, exercise and get adequate sleep.

    Why so sour? and upset?

  • @flootisboy65 Our human ancestors ate VERY LITTLE sat animal fat. the majority of their caloric needs were met by high nutrient dense fruits,vegetables,nuts,seeds and especially starches. A diet based on saturated animal fat and cholesterol has been shown to be extremely harmful and dangerous and to recommend it to other people is plain ignorant. Early hominids were plant eaters.most modern western diseases have propagated since intensive animal husbandry started. potatoes>>steak.

  • @ConcreteRiver Are you a vegan, if so i’m just wasting my time, no matter what I say you will only see it your way. But I know that humans have been eating sat.fat for so long without problems then we switched to synthetic stuff in our foods and heart disease started on the rise. I feel so much better on low carb. If my body feel good I don’t care what experts vegans or celebrities tell me. I don’t need scientist to tell me sugar is bad I know because I feel like crap after eating it.

  • @flootisboy65 Atkins himself stated, when responding to the lack of peer reviewed study that wasn’t funded by Atkins Corp itself, as to the safety and health benefits to his diet, stated that the scientists and medical establishments were already biased against his “work and theories”, so there was no need to call for these studies. A commonality shown by all followers of low carb high fat is “you ignore the science. it is there for you to see”. Well lets see it. Authentic and peer documented!

  • People who don’t understand Low Carb simply don’t understand biochemistry. they must educate themselves!

    Simplified… excess Insulin is overall the bad guy.

    LDL (the bad cholesterol) receptors are INCREASED in fat cells (adipocytes) by…. you guessed it… insulin!! Not good… it simply makes u STORE MORE FAT!

    Also, G3P (Glyceraldehyde-3-Phosphate) becomes the glycerol backbone of triglycerides (fat!). and G3P is produced in CARBOHYDRATE metabolism!!! NOT fat metabolism!

    Dr. Joe

  • @ConcreteRiver Atkins died from falling on ice, not coronary heart disease, The fact that you resorted to name calling is hard proof of your lack of itellect. Odd you mention science since good unbiased science proves the opposite of what you are saying.

  • I feel like a key component missing in the study is the percentage of carbs or fats that come from the calories taken in. Grams of carbs or fats are tough to generalize because everyone’s metabic rate is different and exercise patterns different as well. 126 grams of carbs on a 1500 calorie diet is significantly different than 126 grams of carbs on a 2500 calorie diet. The study seems to have been well executed but it’s means of measuring effectiveness between the two diets was lacking. Cool video tho!

  • @ConcreteRiver My health has never been better. I have not gotten sick in over a year. My skin is spectacular. I no longer have knee and other joint pain. I sleep soundly at night, and I no longer suffer from mild depression. I’m sorry that your deluded, narrow mind prevents you from searching for the truth and that you are satisfied with the false information that you have been spoon-fed your entire life. Good day!

  • @blokesome you lose weight on an atkins style diet because you are causing yourself to be sick and if you continue on this type of eating, you will suffer the consequences, that is a fact, and you know it. weight loss does not equate to health. this type of eating is very dangerous and obviously NOT condusive to overall human health. Please google Jody Gorran, a man in relatively good shape who took your advice to eat butter and cheese and meat and it nearly killed him. you disgust me

  • Loved the info. Once you’re in ketosis though I don’t worry very much about having too much protein….eat enough for minimum requirements and stop eating when you’re satisfied. People just need to listen to their body.

  • gorge yourself on bacon,eggs and cheese and you will get lean??!! The notion defies belief yet many cling to this absurdity.

    I wish all you crazy paleo fucks would ride a large aircraft into the sun.

  • @anotherjoe50 So yeah, you dont eat carbs, so your body enters ketosis, forcing it to burn fat. But is it healthy?
    Your body does it because it feels that it is in constant starvation. You dont give it its primary source of energy, so its forced to burn other things.
    You americans just dont want to understand that you can eat everything, just make sure you to take in less calories than you burn and youll be thin.

  • remember people, it’s not what you eat that makes you fat, it’s the amount you eat that makes you fat. EAT LESS that’s the big secret to weight loss.

  • Yeah it´s processed food and high sugar food that is bad not healthy carbs. I don´t want to eat unhealthy fats and I don´t have acne but I get acne from nuts. I have eaten high carb my whole life and never been fat or gotten overweight from that. I can eat a lot of carbs without gaining fat.

  • Fat does not make you fat. Low fat foods are worse than regular. When they take out fat in foods it tastes bad so they add sugar to compensate. Take out sugar instead of fat or carbs. This study seems extremely inaccurate.

  • You cannot generalize a low carb diet working across the board and a geriatric population. This is why. Your test subjects are obese. There’s nothing else listed about their comorbidities. There’s nothing else listed about cardiac issues. There’s nothing listed about G.I. issues or leaky got etc. In fact there’s no other comorbidities that are actually taking into account here and the only variables that are being tested are a carb diet versus a fat diet in an already obese population. Any scientist or educated person is going to read this and say well if you give that to an obese person they’re not going to lose fat. It’s that plain and simple. Also you cannot restrict carbs in geriatric population with any type of neurological issues. So this is not something that can be taken into account for the general geriatric population. Especially considering how Many of the geriatric population actually do suffer from some type of neuropathy, dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other comorbidities that is not even considered here. So if you restrict fat from an obese population, should you see a reduction in fat question I mean yes let’s not actually consider this to be groundbreaking. That is all

  • I think your assertions about protein ignore the many people experiencing weight loss success on a carnivore diet. While this is anecdotal, there are literally hundreds of not thousands of success stories.

  • I have questions related to the science of ketogenesis. If gluconeogenesis is the process which breaks down another source of energy beside glucose ( carb sugar energy) and it breaks down fats AND proteins, why have low protein? Also, ketogenesis provides energy through the use of ketones for the cells in our body that CAN use the ketogenesis as a means of energy… so what about the cells that cannot? Am I forcing the Oxygen Paradox onto them and shortening the lifespan of the cells? What about the negative side effects of high fat intake? High fats taken into the body are made to triglycerides, if we do not use all of the triglycerides that we’ve effectively pushed into our bodies through keto dieting won’t they get stored or worse go to use to other areas like cholesterol…. even if they are all healthy fats, the high oxidation means high free radicals… that would make high LDL levels?

  • My issue is that I can’t avoid carbs all to much (even when I try to….a lot.). But for some reason I have no issue with avoiding too much fat. My fat is only supposed to be up to 114 grams. I keep having it around 65-94 grams.

    Meanwhile my carbs (sometimes my fault I’ll admit) is beyond 140+.

  • Every year at the start of February I cut all carbs and fat and only have one meal per day. Here is what I eat:
    07:00 am, in a blender I put whey protein powder 30g, 1 shot glass full of source of life gold multivitamins, 2 table spoons of udo’s choice oil and 1 table spoon of apple cider vinegar and 125g blueberries and some water. Blend it into a smoothie and drink it. I also take some supplements such as ginseng root extract, zinc, selenium, calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamins D3 and k2.
    At 12:30 I have few cherry tomatoes, 200g asparagus, 250g broccoli and 250g lambs liver or chicken breast or beef or fish or prawns…
    I go to the gym at 18:00 for at least an hour and half then take 30g protein shake.
    I do that every year from February to the end of August. During this time I get really ripped, I feel full of energy and mentally good, my skin feels feels and looks good but I don’t loose muscles I only lose fat. From September on I eat fruit and maybe a bar of chocolate every now and then on average once a week. I also take 2 months off the gym…
    I have been doing this for over 10 years and I really feel so motivated and always hyper…

  • Man why the hell you consider low carbs and keto as a weight loss method….

    Weight loss isn’t the primary objective of these diets. It’s objective is to improve insuline sensitivity, bowel syndrome, and a way to reset sleep and daily routine life….

    Weight loss is just an outcome. You can’t rely on that without considering optimal hormone balance.

    Why the hell are you taking this as a method to lose weight

  • I eat a high-fat/relatively low carb diet (I don’t go to Atkins extremes, I eat about 50g of carbs a day; all from fruit and vegetables) and I never have energy problems. I lift heavy weights too.

  • You missed my point. Chicken is one of the “leanest protein sources” out there, but we don’t want lean! We want fatty meat! The idea is that animal fats are not bad; they are very good.

  • I started low carb / high fat. Once I’d been keto for a few months I slowly lowered fat intake to moderate. My thinking was that now that my body relearned how to burn fat, I’d take less fat in and let it burn my body fat. Was that wrong? Should I have stayed high fat? I’ll watch video again.

  • Do you feel it is difficult on the body to go in and out of ketosis weekly? I do IF 20-4 every day and workout 5x per week. I was strict about keto for 8 months but have been doing a bad carb meal (pizza) on Sundays for the past month. I am at the same weight and body measurements. Am I really screwing up my system by giving in to my crack carbs every week?

  • Ketogenic diet should have been tested in place of “low carb”. under 30g of carbs, over 60% of calories from fat, and only like 25% of calories from protein. (I might be off on the percentages). Keto diet would blow any low fat diet outta here with results!

  • Say you just are on a regular diet (whole foods reg protein, fats and carbs) is it okay to cut down my carb intake if i was wanting to lose weight a little faster

  • You need to almost eliminate all carbs (keto) to start producing ketones and really see results. The low carb group probably wasn’t nearly even close to keto.

  • “Low Fat is best” diet (Keyes) was able to chair the original proposals by the AHA. So while the controversy raged around him he was able to get the extremely influential AHA to say low fat is best which silenced the discussion in the popular press but did nothing to stop science from continuously proving it to questionable at best and clearly false in many instances. Go to the evidence, not to the organizations pushing one side of the Theory. Thats like saying “Global Warming is clearly…

  • An appeal to authority is one of the worst techniques for proving a point. I can equally as easily appeal to any number of associations that strongly disagree with the AHA and ADA, so that point is invalid. Go to the evidence, and when you do that your opinion becomes much weaker. Billions of dollars invested into testing low fat diets for 50 years now have not yielded the proof that has been looked for. BTW, all of those studies were done b/c the man who originally proposed the…

  • Go the the website for the American heart association and the american dietetic association. The dietetic association even calls the atkins diet a nighmare diet.

  • Of course not. Ya know why? Because all those billions have been spent trying to prove that low fat is the healthiest way to go. When a multi million dollar study doesn’t prove that they think the study wasn’t good enough so institutions like NIH will simply fund another multi million “Please prove low fat diets best” study, which will fail b/c those diets are NOT best. We need to start studying other diets to determine which is actually healthiest.

  • wow. unbelievable lies. new england journal of medicine says the low carb diet people did not restrict calories. way to go with misinformation MSM.

  • Why do people not realize that the QUALITY of fats is just as important as the ratio of fats to carbohydrates in ones diet. If you’re eating feedlot beef, caged eggs and conventional dairy products; of course your arteries are going to clog up. Remember the saying “you are what you eat?”, humans aren’t the only ones it applies to. Eating low quality animal products is an indirect way of eating the industrial soy & canola oils that are truly toxic to your health. Eat grassfed/organic.

  • Nonsense. Small study. Two weeks only. Only 30% reduction in carbs and fat. Other larger studies show cardio better with low carb than low fat. Author of study says fat clogs the heart with fat. Contradicted by many other studies. Bad science. Bias author.

  • I though your calories should consist of lean protein mostly. personally I eat 40 % protein, 30%fats and 30 % carbs. I also try to eat all fats except trans fats, so I don’t cut away the fat from my steak and stuff. I tried the atkins diet and became seriously tired. And that’s cause my body didn’t have any glycogen

  • @blokesome Science and common sense tells us that this type of high fat diet is lunacy. and your god Dr Fatkins died as a fat, ugly man from coronary heart disease. if you are still alive in 10 years, if your own arteries haven’t clogged up by then because you and I both know that you are full of shit. the only false information here is the shit you are spewing. wake up. your dietarian lifestyles are ripping this planet up!

  • Hey, can u do a Video on PITT Force. A lot of people claim to make bigger gainz with it than with HIT or volume training so im kinda curious what science says about that.

  • A low-fat diet is one that restricts fat and often saturated fat and cholesterol as well. Low-fat diets are intended to reduce


  • I have been keto now for 2 months and am in ketosis, and have been intermittent fasting 16 hours… but in the last two weeks, my morning blood sugar has been higher? I feel good, but do not understand why the blood sugar starts higher in the morning. Any suggestions? Thanks

  • low carb diet works
    why are you hating

    eat your favorite meat
    eat your favorite vegetables
    eat your favorite fruits
    eat 2 avocados a day

  • @flootisboy65 Atkins(the dead guy) widow Veronica Atkins, has stated in numerous interviews that her husband had advanced athereosclerosis, clogged arteries. He suffered a myocardial infarction(heart attack) shortly before he died.He died as a fat, unhealthy, albeit very rich man. Millions who tried his ANA also developed severe CV problems and woke up to the fact that gorging on cholesterol and fat is not conduisive to human health. Nor is it natural.

  • I lost 33 pounds in two months on a low carb low fat diet. I felt great. I looked amazing. And the weight stayed off even when I added more carbs back.

  • Animal fats should still be your main source of calories. That’s what I’m getting at. The best diet is one where the majority of calories come from fatty meat. You still need calories, and animal fats are the best source of them.

  • Here’s a real result on low carb diet (keto), not your bullshit 130 grams of carbs, LOL! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2716748/

  • I asked my doctor about going on a keto diet. She said no; it keeps your body acidic and causes inflammation ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6243058/#!po=5.97826). My husband and I are following Dr. Fung’s intermittent fasting instead. But I had roux en y gastric bypass 15 years and need to eat every couple hours throughout the day. I’ve gained back 60 lbs! Can you address this? I’d like to try keto as I can’t get 70 grams of protein daily eating real food. Bars, shakes, and artificial everything seems as bad or worse. Thanks! We love your channel ��

  • You guys are super wrong i do lowfat low carb weights melting off been there keto and intermittent fasting nada low carb low fat follow crystal breeze she has a bad ass testimony. Shes also a chef and did this herself has a book and meal plan the best.

  • But low carb high fat diet (keto) means eating spoonful of butter or coconut oil…thats nasty!!!! Noone on utube give good list of fats…..how are people eatimg tons of oil and butter?

  • I’m sure you have covered this already….. so a link would be great. But…. if one is doing low carb (i.e. 75 to 125 total carbs per day…… how much fat should one be eating. I’m not trying to get into ketosis… just stay low carb….. but I am confused as to how much fat I should be eating. I am eating moderate protein (4 oz per meal for 3 meals per day), low carb (75 to 125 total carb grams per day)…. so…… how much fat would be about right? Thanks…. LOVE your videos…..

  • I’m confused when I read about too much protein being detrimental to losing weight. My husband lost 3 stone on the Dukan Diet and I lost a stone over 6 years ago. That was low carb and low fat and protein for fuel. The protein kept us feeling full. We kept the weight off until maybe a year ago when a few pounds crept on. We have again lost nearly a stone following high protein low fat low carb diet but wondered about switching to Keto for the last few pounds! We liked the sound of the cheese and cream etc….however I added those to our diet a few days ago and have put on 2 lbs! I think I will stick to what worked for us…..Love your videos and have binged watched many:-)

  • All I can say is the two times I’ve tried the low carb diet it has worked for me including currently where I’ve lost over 20 lb going from 180 lb down to 157 lb. Also low-carb is 50g or less per day. If you are consuming only a few carbs over 50 that’s one thing but if you’re well over a 100 grams that is in no way a low carb diet IMHO.

  • How is low carb more satiating? Every time I try paleo or low carb diets for up to 4 weeks at a time I feel starved the whole time and never feel satisfied, even if I eat delicious rib eyes and lots of veggies. In fact, I always get sick when I cut carbs out and don’t get back to peak energy levels until I bring grains back in my diet. My experience defies new conventional wisdom and I bothers me because I want to lose fat without losing muscle.

  • Here is a question, if keto and low carb is so star spangled awesome, how did we lose weight and a great deal of it before keto and low carb and how come calorie restriction gives the same if not better results? (CR doesn’t mean eating a ton of crap)

  • ive watched your vids on ‘what breaks your fast’ but im still confused in that. Does having coffie with milk actually break your fast?Or is is safer to stick to Black coffie so you dont break your fast

  • I’d love go high fat but it makes me nervous. Especially after what Dr. Esselstyn said about olive oil. Is he wrong? How it hurts endothelial cells?

  • Every body is different. If you eat more than you burn, then it will be stored. If you are not burning because you are sedentary then it doesn’t matter what you are eating. Every person has to find what works best for them. What works for me may not work for you. We have different blood types for a reason.

  • “3 Reasons Why a Low-Carb AND Low-Fat Diet Doesn’t Work”
    Until someone ignore your suggestion and does carnivore diet, it works.
    I’m for 3 months now on carnivore diet, I eat once a day about 700g meat, mostly beef, and surprise, surprise, I have no cravings, no hunger, no “starvation feeling”, but I’m full of energy, losing weight rapidely, have a perfect digestion. I just feel great again. Of course I started with a ketogenic diet, but to be honest, I didn’t like the allowed vegetables and for sure I didn’t like the fat, so I just cut out those things and naturally I landed at the carnivore diet. The BIG DIFFERENCE is: I have no cravings and no hunger any more. While I cheated on keto some times, I don’t even need to cheat on carnivore, because it feels so great. And I still like my steaks 😉

  • I am 79 and went on Keto in January. I have lost 32 pounds and more important I feel so much better. I stated out eating 3 meals a day, but after a while I was not hungry so I cut back to 2 meals. I did that for a while and realized that I was eating by the clock. So I cut back to 1 meal a day and feel full and satisfied. My energy level went up and the fog went away in my head. WOW what a difference. My wife also followed the same pattern at age 72. She has lost over 50 pounds and I am having trouble keeping up with her. I recommend this life style for anyone that wants to be more healthy and active.
