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.

According to Hu, the. 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. According to Hu, the. Study: Very low-carb diet beats low-fat for weight loss Older adults who followed a very low-carbohydrate diet lost more weight and fat mass than those following a low-fat die.

The number of studies showing significantly more weight loss on low-fat diets? 0 studies (zero). Low carb is winning 29 – 0. The graph above was made by Public Health. 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. According to. Low-Carb Beats Low-Fat for Weight Loss, Study Says 1 Comment For people who want to lose weight and boost their heart health, cutting down on carbohydrates may work better than trimming dietary fat.

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.

  • CRAP.

    Lame-stream media, as usual, doing its best to mislead people into unhealthy lifestyle, because they’re sponsored by drug companies.

  • And if you stall, just quit the Carb and eat Fat and Meat til satiety…try it for a month:)
    and see what happen then.
    Just my 2 Cent

  • Thats why, all of a sudden, im so lethargic…
    Hard to get going now.
    I had started cutting down, automatically, on my fat intake in order to lower my cholesterol numbers.
    Went to OMAD and even on the one meal, i was barely eating…eating very small portion in that one hour window.
    I guess my body started hoarding what little calories it was getting.
    You did say, how we have to fight a mental game too, in order to get to our goal!
    Im at 187lb and one week left of 41 day challenge.
    47 lb to goal! challenge☆♡☆
    Thank you for the constant support����❣

  • Let’s be honest, a moderate approach is best. I personally go with a 35-35-30 approach, (30 being protein) and not only do I meet my daily goal of proteins, but can enjoy the occasional treat without exceeding my macros.
    And yes, I have tried both low carb (personally had health problems when trying keto) and low fat (nope sorry I love my cheese too much) before settling with this ratio, but so far it’s the only regime I can see myself stick to for the rest of my life; I regarded the other two as “diets” which would soon end rather than a lifestyle.
    As you say, adherence is key, so an IIFYM approach is ideal because anyone can stick to it, being highly customisable.

  • First I just want to tell you that I love your Channel, and that I have learned so much. Would you please do a video and talk about repairing your metabolism in regards to increasing your calories for someone who has habitually been low calorie for a long.. Could you talk about how long it takes the metabolism to adjust to a higher calorie amount. Is there a specific increment of calories you should go up and a specific time you should stay there. My concern is that I was on a low-calorie low-fat diet for so long. I am now following keto and I am intermittent fasting, however I would also like to reset my metabolism.

  • Low carb isn’t MEAT ONLY. Most of it just includes cutting out sugar, flour, grain, starch, and high-sugar fruits. You eat protein, veggies, low-carb fruit like berries, melons, apricots, dairy, nuts, all kinds of healthy stuff. Oyyy.

  • Great! I choose avocado oil as a fat to cook with however I had a bout with hyperkalemia and am seeking now a lower potassium diet The data I found is Avocado is high in potassium but the oil is zero potassium… Is this True and why. I understaND POTASSIUM levels go up in when you you cook say broccoli as to raw as a former chef this is weird I thought cooking degreates foods not enhances. I know this is a little off topic but hope you can help Thanks Michael

  • Most people call a low carb diet call it keto. Keto is 70 to 80% fat. It’s a struggle for most people to eat that much fat and not overeat protein. Low carb diets fail most of the time. True ketogenic diets usually succeed because of satiety.
    I see people doing their shopping on YouTube saying they are shopping keto. They buy chicken breasts and lean meats. Thays not Keto! You really can’t eat a big steak by itself and say you had a keto meal unless you drown it in butter or ghee. Way too much prootien.
    And even dirty keto… pork Rhonda, fat bombs and keto pizzas are not really a good way to get your body to shed fat. Keto works but you must limit p rotien and use fats in a healthy productive way.

  • “vegetables have carbs”

    Not all veg have carbs. Things like broccoli, beans, cauliflower, cabbage and the like have very little carbs but are very rich in vitamins and minerals.

  • I did the 6-week body makeover years ago. It was low carb no fat and moderate protein my protein intake was to eat five to six small meals a day 2 to 3 oz of protein per meal. The carbs were limited to things like oatmeal and vegetables and 2 oz of rice or potato. I lost 47 lb in 7 weeks. But the diet was very restrictive and I missed my Dairy. I like keto, I like cheese.

  • I’ve looked at low-fat manufactured food products and found most of them do either contain a lot of simple carbs as fat replacements or binders or various “fibers” which technically are also carbs and some aren’t exactly “good” for your digestive system and nutrition. (They can lack necessary nutrients or make it harder for the body to extract nutrients from this food or anything that accompanies it.) And low-fat products often lack taste… so manufacturers are “forced” to add (often artificial!) flavors…. or sweeteners…. which may add to the ACTUAL carb count (although it may not be listed as a “whole carb” on the nutritional info) and can raise your insulin, purely based as a “sympathetic response to sweetness “. (There’s a study that claims that in SOME folks, even a sweet taste on the tongue can raise the insulin response…. even if the food products is not swallowed!) Fat in foods, on the other hand, avoids the need for binders, fillers and artificial flavoring… because it keeps food consistency “solid” and makes it taste much better as is. Fat also makes you feel fuller sooner and keeps you satisfied/satiated longer.

  • I personally follow a low fat diet with moderate carb intake and I have lost a significant amount of weight. However my carbs are not refined, they only come from fruits, vegetables, brown rice, and sweet potatoes. Also I incorporate exercise into the routine, and especially if I occasionally eat a refined carb, I will definitely exercise and use up the excess glucose. Also I drink alot of water, no sodas or fruit juices..But I believe whether low fat or low carb, as long as it is clean eating and whole foods, it will work either way. Whether low fat or low carb, if you stay away from refined carbs and all the processed foods and sugars, you will lose weight.

  • I don’t really believe in the low carb actually. where do those people get their energy from? fat isn’t exactly the preffered source of energy right? If I were to go on that diet I would probably become all sleepy and shit.

  • I eat more fat and people think I am crazy…but I have lost 100 pounds doing keto style eating. I guess I will “eat whole food forever” now. lol

  • This is exactly what most people do NOT understand. Next time I get the 50 questions about my “silly” diet I’ll just reference them to this. Great video

  • Hi guys! Tonight I measured my ketones with a keytone stick, and the colour was very clearly matching dark purple, which is 8. Today I had 103g of fat, 96g of protein and 8g of carbs. Not typical (was only because I was very busy at work eg yesterday the macros were 113g fats, 55g protein and 16g carbs so I do try to get close to 20g of carbs). Should I be worried? My fasting BS has dropped to 4.8 even though I started the diet as a diabetic T2, which is great. But I dont seem to be losing weight. Should I be worried by the massive keto level? And why has my weight loss stopped?

  • I have a question. If not eating at all burns your fat reserves isn’t it more convenient not to eat at all and reefed yourself every 24/36 hours to flush down the bile and replenish electrolytes (I am a physician but still cant comprehend the answer:)

  • What would be considered low fat? I eat mainly carnivore and still get my fats in but my percentage is definitely different than the 75/20/5 ratio. But no im curious as to what point i might not be giving my body enough fats with the protien to keep burning the dat for energy.

  • About the mood thing on low carb, I find that if I exercise (lifting and running) for half hour daily my mood is great. Definitely lifting some free weights was what made me feel better. Becuase on a low carb diet I lost weight really quickly (35lb in 2 months) that gave me the foothold i needed to get into doing regular excersise quicker.

  • I lost 110 pounds on the Dukan diet. It is a all protein every other day and protein and cruciferous vegetables the other days. I did gain back 70 pounds back when I started eating carbs and fat that I have since lost again on Keto….Keto much more sustainable

  • Pretty much every other study I’ve seen shows that people lose more weight on a low carb diet, I find it odd that both groups lost the same amount of weight. Was the study done by the AHA or something? They probably just fudged the numbers to make low fat diets look good…and “bad moods” u have go to be kidding me lol that is ridiculous…if u actually objectively study diets, low fat is nonsense

  • I’m curious whether the difference in calories is sufficient to explain the difference in fat loss if it’s simply just a matter of calories. If not, that just further demonstrates that your body’s reaction to high blood sugar and high insulin are primary drivers of weight gain, and that the source of your calories matters a lot, all of which has been consistent with my own personal experience.

  • Re my previous comment: I think I’ve worked it out. I usually don’t eat till 1 or 2pm apart from coffee with coconut oil in it. I guess my body is looking for fuel during those fasting hours which is when it starts burning existing body fat. Is that correct? Thank you

  • I don’t agree that you have to eat high fat to prime your body for a ketotic metabolism. I am in ketosis and have been for several months. My average blood ketone levels are about 1.5 2 and I have eaten low fat / low carb / moderate protein and am losing more than 2.2 pounds per week.

    Even when I eat higher protein levels my blood glucose does not spike in fact when I eat my blood glucose levels generally drop for the next several hours before returning to baseline. Eating this way I have seen a 8% drop in my HbA1C for around 13 to 5.6 % (average blood sugars of about 140 down to 38) in 100 days.

    Dr Stephen Phinney, perhaps the world’s leading exponent and expert on the ketogenic diet, states that in the ‘losing weight’ phase of a ketogenic diet that total calorific intake for an effective state of ketosis could be around 25% fat/ 20% protein/5% carbs with the remaining 50% of your fat (and calorie needs) coming from your body reserves.

    See this video for some details. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0NE8WEH44A&t=193s

    It should be obvious that you can go into an effective state of ketosis without eating large percentages of fat people fasting do it quite effectively and so do babies and young children while they are asleep. The message is actually quite simple eat low enough carbs (actual amounts vary from person to person), eat adequate protein to meet your daily needs (again the amount varies) and you will go into a state of ketosis, even if you ate zero fat.

  • Love your videos, great information, but there is so much conflicting info out there it’s difficult to know what to do. Dr Naiman sites studies that show virtually no impact on blood glucose from protein. Others warn against too much dietary fat. “Adequate”, “moderate”, “too much” are all such vague terms. ��

  • I used to be against eating carbs but recently I favour carbs over fats as it’s a better source of energy. That being said people should focus more on calories and not fats or carbs as calories directly correlate to weight gain.

  • Misleading video.
    They are not comparing a low carb diet to a low fat diet. They are comparing a medium carb diet to a low fat diet.
    This video is a lot like a Michael Moore documentary, using data manipulation, biased narration and a preconceived notion of who is correct.
    Most doctors and researchers today admit that weight loss and bio markers improve much better on a real low or no carb diet.
    This is a biased video.

  • I lost 4 pounds my first week on Keto eating, but it’s been a month since, and I’ve lost nothing. What has happened is, I have been losing and gaining the same pound over and over again. I lose a pound one day, gain it back the next, lose it the following day, gain it back the next, & on & on. I’m discouraged. What is happening, or rather, not happening?

  • There is a type 1 diabetic doctor, in his 80’s by the name of Dr Richard K. Bernstein. He promotes a low carb high protein for patients in his care. As a result they are able to attain consistent and normal blood sugars with minimal use of insulin (type 1 diabetics need the insulin as they do not produce it). Though the diet primarily concentrates on LCHP to control diabetes I’d wager that people who follow the program have a high probability of being in a mild state of ketosis quite simply from the nature of being low carb.


  • The whole fat being bad for you is a scheme made by sugar corporations. Seriously, search it up. Fat is a normal part of the human diet and you should only avoid it if you have high colesterol, hearth problems, etc. Fat is ok, refined sugar is literally poison

  • @ConcreteRiver No one is talking about GORGING oneself. I ate butter, cheese, bacon, etc. to satiation and lost shitload of weight! It’s not an absurdity. It is reality.

  • i am proof of this! i was on textbook perfect keto, only lost 5 lbs, fat burns way slower than carbs so if u eat tons of fat u never get to burn the fat on ur body. lowfat high carb like raisin bran with fatfree milk for breakfast wait 6 hours no snacks, one chicken breast with fatfree cottag cheese and peas, dinner whole wheatpasta and 4% ground beef and low fat marinara sauce. i lost 100 lbs in less than a year, no exercise, im insanely healthy

  • My grandson knows that Old is OK, Elderly IS NOT!
    I’m a 75 yo on low carb for several years. BMI 22, walk 5-15 miles almost every day, and never feel anything but GREAT!

  • Hi..I’m new to your channel so catching up on your videos..however.. Ive lost 15 lbs in 2 months and I look at my belly now & can see the “cottage cheese” effect…I know…gross �� but will abdominal exercise get rid of this?

  • Elderly. I often think of Joe Namath. He said he’s in the 4th quarter of his life once he hit 75. Great philosophy!
    This year our class was going to have a
    Happy 60’th Birthday party but Covid hit. I wished a friend Happy Birthday the other day, and said “Here’s to the next 60!”
    I need to get healthy and see how far I can go! ��

  • I’m 59 year old black woman with 150 lbs to loss and have been diagnosed by my doctor as having extremely low metabolism but not enough for medication to fix it. I have been doing keto for 3 weeks with a loss of only 5 lbs. what am I doing wrong? I feel better but I need help understanding what 30 grams of fat or protein looks like. Please help me visualize what 20 or 30 g of protein or fat in a meal looks like with 20 carbs. I have also started intermittent fasting. Are usually have one meal a day between the hours of one and six and I don’t have much of an appetite until then. But I don’t know what a plate of carbs protein and fat looks like a per meal. Please help!!

  • I’ve been living this, ‘Well Formulated Ketogenic Diet’ for almost a year. A1C is down from 7.7 to 5.1, and as an extra benefit, I’ve lost 65 pounds. Not a diet, but a new way of life. 63yo male.

  • And if you want real world diet knowledge, Google the Nutritional Genomics Institute. Because these fad diets and only control 2 to 3 variables in only work in specific population is going to consider generalized and then it ministered to the public is that they work as a blanket diet, do not work. Every population weather male or female, whether Asian or African-American, whether young or old they all have genetic variants in environmental factors. These blankets dad‘s do not work. Research scientist that is also a certified nutrition specialist from the American Nutrition Association. And you will look at this real world study that you’re claiming as a lab study. Because that’s exactly what it is.

  • @anurre5
    And after doing low fat and low carb back and forth, I am finally going back to low carb after gain more weight on my current low fat diet.

  • well very interesting that lowering carbs improved Cholesterol rather than low fat so people with dislipidemia might benefit from low carb diet

  • wow, so they’re basically saying that you cannot eat the foods(meat and saturated fat) that our ancestors have been eating for millions of years. That sounds ridiculous.

  • I am really triggered by the word “elderly”. I am 67 and don’t feel “elderly”! I always shocks me when I read a novel that says that someone’s grandfather died at 69 and he lived a “good long life”.???? Really??? I don’t think so!
    I plan to stay in denial for many more years!

  • Interesting that mean LDL went down by 10 mg/dl in the low carb group, but actually up by 2 in the low-fat. This could be explained by the greater weight loss in the low-carb group, or because the low carb group was told to limit saturated fat. But good to see a low carb group better able to lower ldl than low fat, even if not statistically significant.

  • Another nail in the low fat dogma coffin! Best part of this study: The patients on the LCHF diet were encouraged to eat AT LEAST three eggs every day!

  • Thank you! The establishment has completely dominated the health and diet space with fake science for too long! The scientific establishment has become a tool for marketing and abandoned their integrity!

  • Carbs have specific nutrition that might be missing from low carb diets. Obviously some carbs are desireable plant and fiber, and others are high starch carbs ie. High Glysemic, which spike Insulin and promote weight gain among other things. I heard there are some RS carbs, resistant starches, which are not digested! Specifically RS-3, has crystal structures which bypass the normal digestive process and end up in the large intestine promoting a healthy microbiome. Retrograde is the process to convert your starch into resistant carbs, YOU might test if cooking potato, pasta, beans, rice, then cooling below 50 degrees, before rewarming or consuming cool, and their impacts on blood glucose, ketosis from your finger sticks! So suggest you boil potato, cool overnight, then either fashion as potato salad or rewarm belowb130 degrees as mashed potato. Please schedule before THANKSGIVING DINNER.

  • I lost about ten pounds on Keto. I was 65 at the time. I am still about 20 pounds over, but after years on Keto, I know it will never come off. That’s ok. I’m still low carb.

  • Hello Docs:) How much is that “excess “ protein for a person? Are there any differences for people with insulin resistant? Thanks.

  • I’m 55 yrs old, and have lost 55 lbs on a KETO diet. It has been 18 months and I am at a steady 185lbs. Ride my bike 100 miles a week and feel better than ever. It works!!!

  • The low carb authors had confidence that didn’t pan out in the short term. One year is certainly short term. Collecting data say at 5 or 10 years would show how the low carb “experience” affected the dieters. Could be significant. Could be devastating.

  • I tried, I really did…2 months on Keto and I’ve never felt more under powered in my life. Mind you, I conflated that with removing caffeinated coffee as well. Now I’m back on caffeine feeling good and eating a balanced diet concentrating in calorie intake and energy output. This always works for a while. But I’ve joined Noom as well and I broke 90 kilos recently for the first time in many years.

  • Woooo, this one was a bit extensive. Prob won’t satisfy everyone, but I tried to remain objectives as much as I could. Enjoy!

    Corrections At 2:48, the RER labeling is backwards. Fat usage is dominant at 0.7 while glucose is at 1.0. I also spelled adherence wrong at 5:16. No more proofreading and reviewing content when I’m tired ��. I’ll make sure I’m more careful next time!

  • There’s no way that you can keep the protein intake the same. Low fat is always going to be lower in protein. These studies are false and misleading

  • Low fat low carb 60 pounds down physical is exptional crystal breeze channel will help you insulin resistance is my problem this is the only diet that has worked for me keto gave me cholesterol and i followed it to the smallest detail. My doctor said no way so i searched and found crystal breeze a chef too she herself lost over 100 pounds and has mantained for years. So it all depends on each person we are all different no matter what you say. Sorry look at the koreans my coworkers eat so much carbs plates full and are 115 125 pounds dont exercise as much as me and there thinner no one is the same.

  • how can one consume 132 gm of carbs and no excercise and stay in ketosis plus protein burns like carbs it tends to be gluconeogenic except for collagen ligaments and tendons
    how do they make sure participant is in ketosis no mention of it, do they check their ketones level?

  • ANY diet that cuts calories will cause weight loss… HOWEVER, cutting insulin (the fat storing hormone) causes weight to be lost at a faster rate due to a quicker switch into ketosis…Here is a summary of not 1, but 23 studies on the matter… https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/23-studies-on-low-carb-and-low-fat-diets

  • I do 4 days (true) low carb, moderatly higher fats, then 3 days high carb, very low fat. Proteins at 2-3gr x kg. Best of both worlds, regulate insuline without imparing thyroid and adrenals. Also you can eat everything, given it is whole food. Wtf.. this war between fatphobics vs carbphobics has to end!

  • I totally understand why Keto works for many. It has not worked for me. I have counted macros, no macros, eat when hungry, or not. All that has happened is I have gained more weight. Doctor has p ut me on Naturethroid and a Bio Hormone Cream. Till no loss no matter what I do. Sugar cravings still high, and I get frustrated so badly.

  • animal fats are good cause they’re said to help with testosterone levels, but only to a certain amount. that’s why i don’t exclude animal fats from my diet entirely

  • I’m on slimming world calorie counting is bad for you. I lose 3+ lb a week and eat as much as I want. From all food groups pretty much.

  • I’ve been doing it for a little over a month. I’m losing but I don’t count anything. I ate healthy before so there wasn’t much of an adjustment to make. I bear people say they can feel it when they’re in ketosis. All I feel is that I’m losing weight. I don’t feel any different than before so am I missing something here? Lv the videos!

  • The one thing they didn’t really focus on is the effects of long term ketosis. The participants didn’t really stick to a diet that would be considered “keto” for very long.

  • Fewer carbs are the way too go! Human Body’s run their best in fat burning mode your body doesn’t burn carbs lol, it burns fat to lose weight… I’ve lost 80 lbs lowering carbs and increasing healthy fats! If you’re a regular person with average genetics you should probably look into less carb & more healthy fats! Think about it peeps your body runs on fats and stores it for reserves, it must be the best fuel source for the body✌️

  • I eat lots of sweet potatoes everyday, still losing fat:).. just stay in caloric deficit,eat Required amounts of protien and you’ll be fine:)

  • Those of us who are seniors really need the benefits of lowcarb/keto/carnivore diet. Keeps bones strong, the brain operating optimally, keeping muscle mass for strength. I see almost daily the effects of SAD on my friends and family over 70; I take no meds, had no knee/hip surgeries, have only a tiny amount of arthritis, most of that happened before low carb. I’ve had friends ask if I’ve had “work” mean plastic surgery because my skin still looks youthful. The built up abuse of decades comes home to pay you back after the sixties; so you younger folks will get the most benefits starting early.

  • i started out with a low carb diet but when i got leaner my workouts began to suck so i switched to low fat and yeapp started working out like a boss burning more calories with intense workouts… i still go low carb on small muscle days though. i train everyday btw

  • Not true. All the biggest loser contestants following the low carb diet are back to their original weight.

    Low carb high fat diets are prescribed and really effective for children with epilepsy. Clear medical benefits for a high fat diet. None whatsoever for high carb.

  • Carbs tend to make me crave more. Where as fat and protein is satisfying and I can eat one meal a day and be fine. Adding a big cup of whole milk also helps to finish off a meal in making me feel full. Also eating low carb tends to insure I don’t have stomach problems. Even if I drink milk. While I’m sure there is plenty of carbs that don’t upset my stomach, it seems like quite a bit do. Even adding just potatoes to my diet can make my stomach a little upset. (To note, I had H. Pylori which I think that mixed with the antibiotics to treat it fucked up my stomach. And yes I take a probiotic daily)

  • I believe in low-carb, but the one used in this diet was stupid!

    No meat? No animal fats? Those are the best things humans can eat!

    People need to get out of this “fat is bad” mindset. Carbs are bad; fat is good (except trans fat).

  • 6kgs in 12 months?! If you are fat, loosing this little in a year means there wasn’t really anything low, nor fat or carbs. And loosing weight (mostly fat) is not magic, it’s just math (yes, for some people math = (black)magic) with some simple rules to follow. Stop eating sh*t, eat your protein, work out to maintain your muscle mass, get your vitamins and minerals, rest, and keep a calory deficit in your diet, to burn more than you eat (this is the math part).

  • All well and good, but how doi figure out HOW MUCH to eat? Is satiety the clue, or 6 oz a day the guide,?? So many ounces per pound of weight? % of total daily calories?

  • great video. watched lots of your content recently. have liked about 75% of them and disliked the rest. this one tipped the balance. you got yourself a new subscriber

  • Ive done both. I started with low carb <30g and calorie restriction 1500 with going to the gym. I lost a lot of fat really quickly 40lbs. in about 6 months. Then I noticed that my muscles weren't really growing anymore, my strength wasn't increasing, and I started losing motivation to go to the gym. I didn't want to work out very long either <45mins/day 3 times a week. 5months ago I switched to high carb +150g of carbs and low fat <50g still on a calorie restriction <1800-2000/day and big cheat days once a week. Within a week I gained 10lbs. (water). I kept going to the gym and haven't lost much weight on the scale, but my muscles look huge and more defined. Ive been sitting at a plateau for a while now because I keep cheating for a week and then going back on the diet, but I can tell you the high carb. is working great for me as a bodybuilder/lifter and gym goer. Its not hard to spend 2 hours in the gym and then go for an 30 min to hour long walk/jog. I feel better, my diet is more flexible, I enjoy the food I get to eat more, and I dont "have" to meal prep. On less than 30g of carbs you really cant be care free about what your next meal is going to be (everything has carbs). On low fat its really easy. For now I'll continue with the low fat because Im getting really strong in the gym and my biceps and chest are growing quickly and to be honest I just love carbs lol.

  • I know. I’m a bodybuilder and I know from my own experience that red meat has high quallity protein and chicken is by far one of the leanest protein sources out there.

  • that low carb group really wasn’t strict enough. I still don’t think it would have made a big diffrence. Maybe like another 2lbs on avg. still 13 or 15 lbs in a year is pathetic

  • I was reading about that recently. Jimmy Moore had a series of vile attacks. The low carbers will always have convenient ways of dismissing stuff like that, but the reality is that these diets are killing people. In Sweden, where the low carb nonsense has been implemented en masse, carb restricted diets have been linked to increased all cause and cardiovascular mortality:

    “Mediterranean and carbohydrate-restricted diets and mortality among elderly men: a cohort study in Sweden”

  • One other thing, soy? Do they not realize how unhealthy soy is? I personally will not touch the stuff.

    If cheeseburger isn’t on the menu, it better be because of the bun; not because of the meet and cheese!

  • Excellent video. I do have to point out that this specific study was very weight loss centric. Anyone just looking to live a healthier lifestyle might not get the full answer. But, still. This video is most definitely useful for the majority of the people watching considering more than 70% of Americans are now overweight and over 60% are obese.

  • Proof read your videos. Not doing so hurts your reputation. You don’t care. It makes me not want to donate to your Patreon account.

  • Still confused. If eating high fat results in your body burning fat, when and how does that equate to losing the fat we already have and losing weight.? I’ve lost 21 lbs and the keto diet has worked for me eating high fat, mod protein and low carbs but still confused.

  • Many food manufacturers try to entice you with labels saying “low fat,” “fat-free,” or “reduced fat.” However, calories come from not just from fat, but from carbohydrates as well. Although these products contain less fat, the amount of carbohydrates is usually increased, resulting in approximately the same number of calories and ultimately the same weight gain. Also any gastric bypass surgery is risky, think of 0% surgical risk, a mindset of ‘gastric bypass w/o surgery’ safe & pain-free.

  • Because, where else are you gonna get your calories from? Carbs? No way! You also want to avoid polyunsaturated oils at all cost. Your two remaining choices are animal fats and nuts. Animal fats are cheaper, already in the meat you’re eating, and actually help lower your bad cholesterol, raise your good cholesterol, and lower your triglyceride levels.

    A better question would be, why would you choose other calories over animal fats?

  • wouldnt the low carb group just gain the weight back in 2-3 days if they started eating more carbs? While if the fat group started eating more fat, it will take wayyyy longer to gain it back. And wouldnt it be hard to exercise on a low carb diet? ya kno weight lifting and bro stuff like that.

  • Thing is your body needs fats but not carbs. Especially men and there testosterone, you need to get a lot of cholesterol to synthesis T. So as A young male I did keto for about 4 months and noticed sig muscle growth while remaining lean.

  • Well, when you do low fat for weeks without the scale moving, yet see results with low carbing the next day, guess which is the winner?

  • I’ve been on keto and I’ve lost 48 pounds the only problem with the diet is the high fat content my cholesterol is at 238 so I’m wondering how do I stay on keito and lower my cholesterol?


  • caused by man!!”
    “Well, prove it”
    “Sure can. Go look at Al Gores website! He’s an expert and says it is, therefore it is!!!” Extremely weak argument. Sorry for the long posts, this 500 character limit is pretty “limiting”:) Like I said, go look at the evidence for your proof. You may still think low fat is best, but at least you’ll have an actual reason to think that. Cheers pal:)

  • Was there no mention of how much of that weight lost was fat/muscle? Low-glycogen diets are notorious for mainly getting rid of water weight.

  • What do you think of that idea of having more protein being the reason the low-carb group may have done slightly better when it comes to weight loss? I also wish that these studies would monitor muscle loss or gain as a contributing factor. Did they work out? There’s other variables I wish to know.

  • Low carb good for losing fat. Low fat for losing everything.
    Weight doesn’t matter. Body fat percentage and muscle mass matter.
    You don’t eat enough fat, you may experience muscle loss too.
    Monounsaturated fat is essential.

  • 132g of carbs is in no way a low carb diet. 50g would be on the high end. So I think what they studied is the dietary preference of the participants not necessarily the value of low vs high fat diet. I’ve been on sub 50g carbs for three years now so it’s definitely sustainable even when eating out. Just substitute potatoes and starchy vegetables with green vegetables and of course no bread. For me, the low carb is even more sustainable than low fat as one of the big drivers, for me, of super high-calorie eating was overeating of empty calories on starchy stuff like potato chips and Fench Fries. I find taking them off the menu all together is much more sustainable than “eating just one”. I think that was even a tagline for Lays. “Bet you can’t eat just one”.

  • If you want to retain any of the lean muscle physique you bulked for all winter skip low carb. Seriously, you’ll be flat in addition to losing strength from doing HIIT. It’s a lose lose, been there done that and most people (people that are natty mind you) have had the same experience. YOU DON’T WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT, YOU WANT TO LOSE BODY FAT, WHAT ARE YOU A BOXER? What good is weight loss if half of the weight you’re losing is your gains? Do moderate carb/low fat and cut calories in stages + a good shred supp and 20-30 minutes of HIIT after you lift. You’ll look WAY better and won’t feel like shit all the time. You’re welcome. One more thing, keep lifting heavy. The fibers that give you size respond to heavy weight. #micdrop #fuck

  • Hi you two!
    Thanks again for your help.
    I still struggling with knowing how to get fat in.
    Not too much protein.you only have so many choices.
    Can you recommend a book that would help. thanks again Jennifer �� ��

  • I have been on the ketogenic diet (low carb high fat) for about 2 weeks. I calculated my calories to 1566 a day and only 20g of carbs a day. I have lost about 12 pounds so far I eat 3 meals a day and I do not get hungry or have the cravings I used to (:

  • I love the science of it all….its very hard i find when im talking to people who would benefit from keto…they look at you as lf you are from another planet… in the UK they still think low fat is king, they cannot get there heads around eating any sort of fat they almost freak out when l tell them what i eat…they can see hpw well @ energised i am…[email protected] ive lost around20lbs easily doing 18/6 IF….with keto…why is it so hard to get people to listern? You are doing a great job explaining but to the masses it goes rright over their heads…i surpose with your channel you are kind of preaching to the converted…xi like listening to you anyway…thanks x

  • I have done both. On low fat high carb diet I lost more muscle mass than fat. My strength went down by 60%. On keto though, I retained most of the muscles and my strength was back 100% in just two weeks. And I was making PRs for next month.

  • but isn’t there a risk that I’m gonna use a lot of water and and break down a lot of muscle for energy? I’m actually thinking about going on a low carb diet but 34 pounds in one month sounds a bit much:O. when I work for my definition where I try to drop body fat % I lose about 1-2 pounds per week if even that. Another thing I don’t understand is why they call it low carb when you usually eat a lot of vegetables on a low carb diet. vegetables have carbs. can anyone explain this please?

  • April 2018 I was 75 yrs. old weighed 270 lbs. with no illness just HBP controlled with meds. I read about Ketogenic diet and watched Youtube doc. Ken Berry. One year later I weighed 160 lbs. Doing Ketogenic way of eating along with IF. I am now 77 and have ditched my meds waist dropped from 48 in. to 34 in. I will be LCHF for the remainder of my life. I currently eat OMAD 75% of the time. Since April 2018 I have never felt hungry.

  • Bro can you make a video about “movement”? A kind of training promoved by a guy called ido portal. I found it really interesting but information about it is hard to find.
    Love your channel❤

  • “no significant differences among the primate species in the fat content of their diets, 2. the seasonality in fat intake coincided w/an increased ripe fruit availability, 3. amounts of fat in the diets were very low, even at peak consumption levels; peak was only 8.5% lipid, the average annual intake was only 2.5%.. humans do not need more than 3-5% fat on a dry matter basis.. Modern, westernized humans consume 15-25% fat on a dry matter basis..in excess of need (Butrum et al., 1988)

  • Every cell in the body runs on SUGAR. FAT causes FAT, and fat causes type 2 diabetes, because if INSULIN RESISTANCE.

    load up on as many carbs as you want, fruit, pasta, rice, bread, etc etc. Combine it with plenty of water and you’ll have more energy than ever

  • This is irresponsible journalism. No facts. It’s sad that this is wrong on so many levels, it’s unreal. Carbs should be 5% of your diet. So irresponsible.

  • 130g of carbs LOL, FAKE STUDY
    Also, they didn’t put a protein/fat limit to the low carb group. Results are not relevant, the matter still stands. Keto is better

  • How do you get into ketosis with Thyroidectomy and insulin resistance? I am on 20 carbs with iF now, but only lost 15 pounds in 5 months and hitting plateau for 2 weeks

  • Lots of unknown information here. I wonder what the QUALITY of the food consumed in the study was. Conventional animal products contain hormones! If those on the low carb were consuming more animal products (which I’m sure they were) that could be the reason for the mood difference. Also, poor quality animal products are often less dense in nutrients because the animals are not grass fed. Was the low fat diet that was ate including more fruits and vegetables or more grains?

  • Fruit and vegetables are the only carbs people should generally eat, anything else is simply unnatural. Low carb is way better for both mood and weight loss.

  • This lady is CRAZY! Carbohydrates like pasta, bread, and even rice don’t occur naturally in nature-has anyone seen a pasta bush? Yet, the huge mega-corps that make trillions of dollars off carbs continue to hammer it into our brain that we MUST have carbs. This lady is one of their spokespersons!

    Fat doesn’t create a insulin response… fat doesn’t make you fat! It can’t!
    Carbs on the other hand trigger insulin (the growth horomone) and make you retain water (hence carbo-“hydrate”).


  • Thanks for the info. I am still questioning how my body will use up already stored fat if I am eating more fat than normal every day? Thanks.

  • Should have checked which group felt better overall during the process.

    Definitely low carb makes you feel much better than low fat.

  • I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I admit I’m torn. It’s good to know that excess protein can be stored as fat, but how much is too much?

  • Hi, love your channel, very instructive. Could you do a episode about weight loss and microbiota? And I also think there is link between microbiota and the conversion of white fat to beige and brown fat (adipocytes). Thanks a lot.

  • @fatisgoodforyou: I think for the most part you are right on about a cheat day. At least for me, a cheat day is like poison. A cheat day for me could easily turn into a 3 day affair. Ciao!

  • Solutions to the low-carb issues:

    1) Eat high-fiber, nutrient-rich veggies like broccoli, green leafy veggies, and carrots.

    2) Take a multivitamin, and if your mood is low, eat some turkey or take 5-HTP.

    3) Allow yourself one high-carb cheat day per week, and if a social situation comes up, use that day to have cookies and pie.
