The Keto Diet Is Gaining Popularity, But Is It Safe? A new twist on extreme weight loss is catching on in some parts of the United States. It’s called the “keto diet.” People promoting the diet say.

But now an even stricter version of low-carb eating called the ketogenic diet is gaining popular attention, igniting a fierce scientific debate about its. How long the keto diet is safe for weight loss is still under study. Early research found that overweight individuals who followed it for.

The keto diet is newly popular, but it was originally developed as a treatment for epilepsy, said Cat Taylor, a registered dietitian with Nutrition on. The keto diet is newly popular, but it really dates back to the 1920s, when it was developed as a treatment for epilepsy, said Cat Taylor, a registered dietitian with Nutrition on Demand, a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm. The ketogenic, or keto, diet is popular as a way to help people lose weight. But is it a safe, effective method to keep diabetes under control? Scientists are.

An upcoming study will look at the ketogenic diet as a weight maintenance strategy. The downsides: While the research is exciting, there’s very little evidence to show that this type of eating is effective — or safe — over the long term for anything other than epilepsy. Plus, very low carbohydrate diets tend to have higher rates of side effects, including constipatio.

Keto diet is one of the most popular diets today mostly because social media influencers often credit it for their slim figure. However, just because something is popular, it doesn’t mean it is effective or safe for everyone. If you have hypothyroidism and are considering keto diet, you should read this post first prior to making a final decision. Ketogenic diets may have some benefits but are controversial. At the very least, it’s difficult to stick with and could cause other health issues.

Other studies suggest that some individuals may be predisposed to heart-related problems if they eat a very high-fat diet for an extended period of time. That being said, the keto diet has been shown to be beneficial in many studies, especially among obese men and women.

List of related literature:

In a study by Johnson et al., ketogenic and nonketogenic low-carbohydrate diets were equally effective in reducing body weight and insulin resistance, but the ketogenic diet was associated with significantly more adverse effects [131].

While everyone can benefit from getting their bodies into a state of ketosis, I know lots of people who don’t thrive on a keto diet in the long term, and it’s fine.

Very-low-calorie diets providing protein of high biological quality produce average weight losses of 1.5 to 2.0 kg weekly and are safe when limited to periods of 16 weeks or less under proper medical supervision (Wadden, Stunkard, & Brownell, 1983).

  • This is just more of the same. Absolute garbage information.
    For years the US population has been receiving unproven nutritional science driven by greedy corporations. Whose only real concern is profit.
    The many years, all the flat out lies have lead to an epidemic state of obesity. We are the most unhealthy bunch of fat asses on the planet.
    Unhealthy “Carbs” as in Junk Sugar is the enemy. And always has been. Don’t take anyone’s word for it anymore, one way or the other.
    Take that garbage sugar shit out of your diet for at least a month and you will understand. I have never felt this good in my life. Ever.
    Like most I have lived a life of FOG. Now everything is just clear. My brain is clear, my skin is clear, I don’t have heartburn anymore, I have zero anxiety. Which used to be a plague on my daily life. No more mood swings and great sleep. Finally, I just feel great. All the time. Don’t take my word for it. Just try it. But get educated first. Keto works.

  • I don’t eat high fat. Ew. I eat NO carbs during the day….I eat cheese, nuts, salad, vegetables. Then I eat whatever I want for supper. Small portions and berries. I stay thin. Someone gave me a donut for breakfast so I took it home and ate it after supper.

  • Apparently this “nutritionist” doesn’t know the toxicity of “vegetable” oils and still believed the saturated fat is bad propaganda.

  • 12:31 I can’t believe this nutritional ‘expert’ is recommending canola oil; it certainly makes me question whether she knows what she’s talking about ( ).

    Like all modern vegetable oils, canola oil goes through the process of refining, bleaching and degumming — all of which involve high temperatures or chemicals of questionable safety. And because canola oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which easily become rancid and foul-smelling when subjected to oxygen and high temperatures, it must be deodorized. The standard deodorization process removes a large portion of the omega-3 fatty acids by turning them into trans fatty acids. Although the Canadian government lists the trans content of canola at a minimal 0.2 percent, research at the University of Florida at Gainesville, found trans levels as high as 4.6 percent in commercial liquid oil.

  • This woman is very uneducated. Ive been on Keto since May 1st, im down 100 pounds, im eating a ton of veggies with every meal and nuts like pecans and macadamia nuts. She really needs to do her research.

  • It puts a terrible strain on your body. Some of the comments from Keto fans are hilarious because they believe the Government is trying to suppress it. Some of the so-called Doctors on youtube have questionable backgrounds. Dr. Ken D. Berry for one. Chiropractors aren’t real Doctors and jumped on the keto bandwagon to make money.

  • I’ll stick to keto. I love the part about sugar is not toxic yeah buddy. While you’re cramming your face with vegetables don’t forget you have to have fat soluble vitamins.

  • wow, she doesnt know much. i do keto and loss 35 lbs in 3 months and i do eat certain vegetables and nuts. she needs to study on it instead of giving her opinion.

  • Feels like there is an agenda behind this. She is clearly not that knowledgeable on Keto or fasting. In my experience almost every single person that has tried Keto or fasting feels great and there is plenty of research showing that the Keto diet is ideal for diabetics.

    And at the end of the day anyone that is conscious of what they are eating is going to live healthier and feel better.

  • I went on this diet for 4 months…. I go back on it from time to time. Not just because I lost 20 lbs and 2 pant sizes…. but because of HOW I FELT… You have a general all around FEEL GOOD effect. Best of all… I had NO CRASHING at around 3 like I normally do. I have full energy through out the work day and still have plenty left over for home stuff.

    I don’t know that this lady is talking about as I had nothing but good experiences from this diet. For the recored, NO you don’t block all carbs… I was at around 20 grams of carbs per day… that is plenty of carbs for one person.

    If you ave any questions about my experience, feel free to ask…

  • WHY the so-called ‘BAD’ cholesterol (LDL) goes up (even “through the roof”!) on a ketogenic diet?

    THIS is really SAFE (short-tern/long-term) because it is one of the MAIN beneficial functions of the LDL cholesterol
    for delivering energy (in the form of ”ketones”) throughout the whole body on a ketogenic diet!
    Now, therefore, let’s have a scientifically OBJECTIVE look at “the other side of the coin”, presented by Dr. Nadir Ali: Best regards & take care!

  • I eat 6 to 8 cups of veggies a day. I eat nuts. Low portion and healthy fats.

    I feel healthy with more energy.

    You need to educate yourself much more about keto

  • 28:58 the LFVegan data in the table is just wrong:
    Low carb keto diet A1C change: -1.5pp (that’s right)
    Low glycemic reduced calorie diet A1C change: -0.5pp (wrong, it’s not -1.2)
    Low carb keto diet LDL change: +1.3 mg/dL (yes, that’s right)
    Low glycemic reduced calorie diet LDL change: -2.8 mg/dL (wrong, it’s not -16)
    Also those numbers have huge variance, so the difference is insignificant in both cases. So the half of the table is a fabrication.
    Moreover, the conclusions in that paper are not what she is claiming:
    In summary, lifestyle modification using two diets that
    reduce carbohydrate intake led to improvement in glyc-
    emic control, diabetic medication elimination/reduction,
    and weight loss in overweight and obese individuals with
    type 2 diabetes over a 24-week period in the outpatient
    setting. The diet containing fewer carbohydrates, the low-
    carbohydrate, ketogenic diet, was more effective for
    improving glycemic control than the low glycemic diet.
    Lifestyle modification using low-carbohydrate diet inter-
    ventions are effective for improving obesity and type 2
    diabetes, and may play an important role in reversing the
    current epidemic of ‘diabesity.’

  • Fact-Check: What did our ancestors eat? Majorly fat and lived long healthy lives. What do most people eat today? Majorly carbs and sugar producing obesity and diabetes with fatal heart disease conditions.

  • I had an uncle that smoked, drank and ate all the wrong foods in excess. He was grossly overweight and feeling poorly all the time. Then he started the keto diet. Four months after he started keto he suddenly died. He was hit by a bus. Just saying…..

  • Other reported side effects of Keto, hair loss, insomnia, dark “keto circles” under the eyes, increased risk of diabetes! Fun! Side effects of high carb, whole food plant based diet, clear skin, sustainable weight loss, increased energy, stronger immune system and very low rates of heart disease, cancer & diabetes.

  • Gee… Celebrities and mainstream news… If those reliable folks do it, it must be safe! Yeah �� Go high carb plant based. Its not only the healthiest diet on Earth its FAR less restrictive, feels good knowing your $$ isn’t going towards murdering BILLIONS of innocent animals and sealife, AND it’s sustainable. Because its not a lose weight quick fad diet. Its a lifestyle. I’ve maintained my desired weight of 115lbs for the entire 5 yrs I’ve been high carb vegan.

  • She doesn’t understand keto at all. I’ve lost 46 pounds and feel great. Watch The Magic Pill documentary 2017. Also Cereal killers 1 and 2.

  • Food pyramid? Fad diets? Fictitious keto complications?
    Brought to you by the industry whose advice has caused HUGE increases in; 
    obesity, diabetes, hypertension, multiple brain disorders, heart disease, atherosclerosis, ad infinitum…

  • Glib inaccuracy after glib inaccuracy. Certainly didn’t change my views on dietitians (except for Amy Berger). But hey, let’s all continue to develop insulin resistance on the low-fat diet that has been trumpeted by Harvard for the last 30 years. It certainly hasn’t led to a dramatic increase in obesity and diabetes.

  • So moral of the story keto is just a plate of meat. Thats it. No side dish? Thats a pretty plain diet. And to do it for one month?

  • Those negative side effects only happen for a few days if at all, while your body transitions from using carbs as a fuel source, to fat. It’s called the keto flu. With clean foods, ots of water and salt I never even experienced this. Been on Keto for over 2 months and I’ve never felt better. 40 pounds lighter and even stronger in the gym (after a slight decrease in strength the first 2 weeks while my body adapted to the change). The new found mental clarity is also no joke. That’s been my experience with Keto so far.

  • It’s really frustrating being a mother of a severely autistic son with epilepsy and reading about all the people trying to “lose weight” on Keto. I don’t give a shit about weight loss. I’m interesting in my son having LESS seizures and being on LESS toxic medications that have forever been a flipping nightmare to manage for years. I just can’t relate to anyone trying to lose weight on this diet. To me the most critical component of the research behind KETOGENIC diet is how the hell to help people stop having seizures. But, okay, I’m glad people are losing weight on this, but please try to understand how confusing it is for parents like me who are researching this so our children can have better seizure control.

  • been on keto for 2 months in which i lost more than 10kg. it’s super easy to follow just don’t eat shit and eat all the tasty food you are allowed to. after being on keto for the 2 months n doing fasting i never had any problem with headaches bad breath and all that. that said, i haven’t done any blood-tests tho. so far my only problem is that when it’s time to poop my stomach ache as if i were it was diarrhea, but it is normal and after i’m done the pain stops.
    to me diets like keto and intermittent fasting make absolute sense, carbs and sugars in the huge amounts we are consuming today is unnatural. the human body hasn’t evolved to eat like that. agriculture has come in a very small % of our life, our body still works as hunter gatherers you could say.
    in conclusion for me when i go and check my blood if that shit is alright then it means keto is the way to go. it’s easy and simple and it works. keto fasting and some workout should be enough to be in a normal shape and healthy.

  • I wish you wouldn’t keep referring to celebrities. I have no idea what celebrities are eating. How would I even know? Reading gossip magazines or something? Who with a three-digit IQ even looks at those?

    Someone simply mentioned it to me when I once commented that I feel weaker instead of stronger after my morning cereal, and I went to read up on the biochemistry of it. I then tried it, and it worked perfectly, although it is a bit hard to stick with since it’s a boring diet. I would rather be eating lots of grains and fruit.

    Celebrities and ‘trendiness’ don’t come into it.

  • Been following ketogenic since April 2017. Results have been amazing, 270 pounds to 185 pounds, 47″ mid section to 35″ mid section. Blood pressure wise, my doctor’s nurse stated on my last physical that I have great blood pressure, 113/70. I then let her know that I have “white coat syndrome” and that my blood pressure goes up when I’m near a doctor. Her reply was,”what? With this measure, I wouldn’t even know. Your normal blood pressure is probably lower then. Fantastic job! Keep doing what you’re doing.” My health numbers, my doctor always says this, ” I’ll like to inform you that your health numbers are good. Keep eating a low fat diet and following orders.” See…I’m lying to my doctor, I tell him that I’m a “vegetarian,” but the reality is…I’m a keto follower, and been thriving on it. If I tell my doctor what I’m doing, he’ll keep talking bad about keto and how “damaging” it is. It’s horrible, that I have to lie to a doctor to safeguard my own health!

  • For a long time (close to 2 years), I was keeping up with my prescription medication to take care of my blood pressure not until this calendar month I discovered about this cure. A doctor has confirmed it too. Really dont need to take the medicine previously prescribed to me. Using Google to get this guide. It calls Jason Cυnobroke

  • Hello there, have you considered Hybetez Remedy yet? Simply do a search engine search. On there you’ll find an awesome tips about how you can fix your high blood pressure issue inherently. Why not give it a chance? maybe it’s going to work for you too.

  • Is Hybetez Remedy useful to fix your high blood pressure issue naturally? We’ve read numerous good stuff about this high blood pressure secret remedy.

  • Here’s a thought: Take 200 of her Type 2 patients and put them in a study. Keep 100 of them on the diet Messer recommends. Put the other 100 on a Keto diet with no more than 20 total carbs per day. At the end of the year see how many in each group has reversed their Type 2 diabetes. The truth is dozens of patients in the Keto group will have lost a ton of weight and no longer have Type 2 diabetes nor need her services. There’s your proof. I know from my own personal experience.

  • Well, every expert is entitled to his or her opinion about what the state of nutritional science says. Here is some science defending the opposing view:

  • the experts like this doctor does notsay how to lose weight. In my 30s I worked out 3 hours a day & lost no weight. now in my 40s after having metabolic syndrome I changed to a keto biotic diet ( fatty fish & leaves) mainly & I have lost 40 lbs, my health is much better. fuck these doctors

  • this is true when you are at an old age and has slower metabolism. keto is great but not for all ages. more fat you take but with lesser fat burning rate means you’ll end up clogging your veins instead of reducing fat

  • I’ve been on the keto diet for a couple months. I got tested today and my blood pressure is way lower than average. Yesterday I even passed out due to oxygen not reaching my brain; also I feel lightheaded pretty often. I should definitely eat more salt and be careful but saying that it does not help lower blood pressure is simply a lie.

  • I’ve done it and I lowered my weight 15 pounds in the 1st week and out got off my diabetes medicine because my blood sugar has come down from the to hundreds to 88. My blood pressure was always around 150 over a 100 and right now my blood pressure is 128 / 73. And once I lose more weight I am going toGet off my blood pressure meds. This guy does not know what hes talking about

  • what tf? what actual kind of expert was that? there are people out there dying more because of overeating than starvation,what a load of lies….

  • A biased and misinformed video. Thumbs down….go get some quality info that helped me and many others

  • For one, the fats they choose for this video are fried foods which are not ideal for any diet. That’s just not a fair comparison to other choices of fats.

  • Silly.

    The ketogenic diet is aimed at reducing insulin, which dramatically reduces water weight, systemic inflammation, and edema in obese people, the highest population on blood pressure medication.

  • Great info. My partner has fatty liver and was told to eat healthier. He was interested in keto (because someone recommended for weight loss). I asked him to consult with his doctor first. Stubborn. I searched on here and found your video VERY helpful.
    See, I’ve done the HCG which is way stricter than keto (phase 4) but made me go into ketosis…I explained that it was great weight loss method but very difficult to follow long term. Hence, I did not stay on it. After the HCG plan…I developed arthritis pain galore. Not sure if it was connected to the HCG-no carb diet. But here I am.
    So, best bet would be just eating healthier as suggested, a low fat diet.
    Thank you for this video!
    We are steering clear of keto or such extreme diets.

  • More sugars more water retained. More water more sodium. More sodium higher blood pressure.
    More sugars = more high blood pressure.
    Fasting is not starvation when you eat fats. Eating sugars is starvation because your body is never setisfied.
    Study my friend, study.

  • Researchers initially developed and continue to recommend the diet for children with epilepsy. However, some reviews maintain that it might also benefit some people with diabetes. Some research has suggested that following a ketogenic diet might: reduce the risk of diabetes in people who do not yet have it.Mar 29, 2019

  • I reversed my diabetes naturally just by following this diet: thebigdiabetes-lie. com (Google it) in a few weeks my health improved noticeably

  • You need to learn the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. They are not the same thing at all. Ketoacidosis is a complication of primarily type 1 diabetes and it can kill. Ketosis is a natural state that everyone enters from time to time and is the body using fat stores.

  • She’s delusional, she just called The Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting as a fad diet, WTF? She just said she wouldn’t mind if a diabetic would go to McDonald’s, She just said that a Diabetic Type 1 shouldn’t go on Keto which is fucking ludicrous. If you are a type 1 diabetic, you receive insulin shots because your pancreas doesn’t produce insulin, in Ketoacidosis, your blood sugar goes up to 300, on Keto it goes to 60 or 80 or something low, Insulin pushes the blood sugar down, so why wouldn’t you want to go on a diet that lowers your blood sugar, which is Keto, the only way you can get Ketoacidosis for a diabetic type 1 is if they don’t take in their insulin shots, plus if they go on Keto, they’re blood sugars go down so their need for insulin is less, thus less insulin shots every day, also she says she is afraid of people getting low blood sugars while Intermittent Fasting? WTF? The reason your blood sugars go down is because you spiked them, and insulin pushed it down, when you go on Keto and IF, your blood sugars normalize and are stable, this woman is delusional

  • Thank you for voicing concerns about the keto diet and the super restrictive diets. I have known a couple of people who were hospitalized for metabolic syndrome after being on the keto diet. Part of the reason I created my channel was to let people know that there are healthier ways to achieve a low calorie diet than by being on a super restrictive diet!

  • i would say this video needed more in depth research rather than scaring people…found an alternative video which is more informative….

  • 15 mins in and i have not seen this amount of misinformation and lies by omission before about keto from even the most hardcore low fat vegans. It is funny how she thought she she us bringing good argument against keto when talking about chd. If you go on any diet you need to do blood work every 2 months to see your change, and if you see that your LDL is going up, you can stop. The fact is that ketogenic diet is statistically superior for heart health compared to the diet preached by her.
    She also lied about muscle breaking by body for production of glucose. Your body can make glucose from triglycerides. If she doesn’t know that, she js not qualified to talk about diet and if she knows it and does not talk about it because she just wants tk scare people of ketogenic diet, then she is lying and her behaviour is not ethical.
    The other issue is that she is reducing the weight lose effect of ketogenic diet just to the calories, which disregards the established appetite suppressing effect of this diet. In practice, it is easier to lower your calories on ketogenic diet as you would not be suffering from sharp and debilitating hunger. In addition, it known that insult itself lowers your metabolic rate. So, with the same number of calories, a diet with lower insulin response like ketogenic diet will result in a better weight loos
    It is funny how she mentions that the weight loos is identical between ketogenic and low fat diets after one year, but then she focuses on the first week of one study to show that fat loos is reduced initially after ketogenic diet:)))))) so much for consistency
    As an anecdote, i went on a high protein ketogenic diet(without actually knowing what ketogenic diet was. I did a process of elimination) and lost 30lb of fat in 4 months (i was 140 lb at the beginning of my diet), gained 2 lb of muscle, reduced triglyceride from 147 to 72, while my ldl increased from 79 to 83 and my hdl increased from 38 to 57. This was of course accompanied with improvements in my liver status.
    So yeah, ketogenic diet was an absolutely amazing thing for me.
    I feel sorry for your if you base your information about this diet on this piece of propaganda garbage.

  • The Keto diet is dangerous and unhealthy according to most scientific research:

  • This video seems to come off bias in favour of the high carb (obesity) diet maybe because it’s easy to follow plus most of the world is eating like this. No good nitpicking at the keto diet and for what it’s done for millions. I think maybe going back in time to the Caveman era (Keto) wouldnt be so bad, I bet you wouldnt see as many ailments!

  • The tone of this video screams of bad faith and it really bugged me so I wanted to comment on a few things that stood out to me. This woman makes veganism sound like a miracle cure.

    First, people eat less on keto because they”re not hungry, not because the food is bad. Not having insulin spikes from eating carbs makes you feel satiated. That’s why all fast food joints give you unlimited high sugar drinks like coca cola when you eat there: if you stay there long enough you’ll be hungry again for more before you’re done. The same way you keep eating chips until the whole bag is empty.

    The truth is keto food is delicious because fatty food tastes great. There’s a reason why everybody loves bacon.

    I’m sure you can lose weight on the vegan diet but the food is bland, especially if you combine it with a low fat diet. I know I could never sustain it just like most people I know could never sustain it either.

    By the way the keto ”flu” should lasts days tops (in my case 2) not weeks… if it lasts longer than that you’re eating too many carbs and it’s preventing you from staying in ketosis, that feeling of crabbiness is due to your body’s transition from using carbs to using fat. Every time you eat too many carbs you have to start the process all over again.

    You know what else is really good for your health? fasting. For me fasting before Keto was quite difficult. Trying to go any longer than 4 hours without eating was torture (my hunger would even wake me up in the middle of the night for a snack). Nowadays I can forget to eat for over 36 hours and I feel fine. I’ve had to slow down my weight loss to stay in the healthy ”don’t lose more than 2 pounds per week” window.

    I eat more vegetables now than on my old american diet (basically all cruciferous vegetables). Honestly I eat more vegetables than most of the people I know (most people eat grains like bread, rice and pasta) and the only times I have trouble with my bowels is when I cheat and eat something that’s not keto. And of course bad fats (which do contain toxins) can be an issue longterm but there are healthy options like anything cooked in avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil and the like. Just like there are plenty of terrible vegan options like pizza, donuts and fries.

    Speaking of toxic options: tea leaves are also a problematic source of pesticides just like foodborne illnesses on vegetables are more likely to kill you than any kind of problem you can get from meat

    A typical keto day for me starts with a cheese and spinach omelet with a little bacon and I finish the day with a steak with broccoli. Since fat contains more calories than carbs or proteins (9 instead of 4) it’s not that hard to stick to a 75% fat diet.

    Maybe a keto person will never process carbs properly but if they never consume enough carbs for it to be a problem then it still fixes any issue with diabetes. And I have no doubt that losing 70 pounds will do more for my heart’s health than whatever damage a high LDL might cause (and the research on that is being put into questions by many many doctors). Anecdotal evidence of a guy getting a heart problem on Atkins is not research.

    And vegans have many issues too. Most people assume they’d have problems with protein deficiencies but the most common issue concerns iron deficiencies. An iron deficiency can be serious for women and it’s even more problematic when they’re pregnant. Heme iron (aka meat iron) is far easier for the body to absorb which can’t help you when you cut all of it out of your diet. Anemia is no joke and that pale vampire look all vegans seem to share is not a fashion statement. Nor is their difficulty to clot or their B12 deficiencies which lead to neurological damage.

    Finally, while some sports might lose performance on keto (in high intensity efforts like say hockey) long endurance sports (like marathon runners or long distance cyclists and swimmer) find it beneficial though I doubt most people are concerned with their athletic performance when they adopt that kind of diet. And the cancer fighting benefits of keto aren’t nebulous at all: cancer cells can only eat glucose (not ketones), if you don’t have any carbs except what your body produces through glucogenesis it severely limits their growth which helps chemo do its thing.

    It’s not a new theory, it’s just not a well researched proven yet because the keto diet’s rebound in popularity is relatively new and cancer research takes a long time and is hard to quantify.

  • Most stupid presentation I’ve ever heard.. the the more stupid than the lecturer is the audience.. obviously losing jobs is hard to deal with.

  • We’ve been doing the low fat diet since the 1970s and have had since record amount of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The problem is the food manufacturers didn’t adhere to the limiting the refined and processed sugars part.

  • LDL isn’t “Bad Cholesterol”. Health outcomes are better if cholesterol is higher than for those with lower cholesterol. What Lee isn’t telling you is that LDL is about energy distribution. She also hasn’t mentioned every cell in your body needs cholesterol. It’s interesting that she says you can introduce insulin resistance in three days, because it takes a couple of months to fully transition the body to run on fat in the absence of carbohydrates. I’m 23 minutes in and have seen enough to conclude her talk is deficient.
    The answer to “Is the Ketogenic Diet Safe?” is yes. Humans lived on a Ketogenic diet, actually a carnivorous diet, for millions of years; it was the only diet. Africa’s Maasai and many of Canada’s Inuit still live on carnivorous diets. Only the Inuit who adopted a western diet are the ones suffering ill health.

  • That “doctor” needs to go on the Keto diet himself!!! ������
    I have been on Keto for 15 months now… my blood pressure dipped to 95/60

  • Stop calling LDL “bad” cholesterol. There are two types of density particles in “LDL” lipid proteins, high and low density. Low density is safe but high density could cause problems if inflammation is present in the body.

  • You’re out of control and you’re misleading people you should stop!? People that are in the keto diet do not eat enormous amount of meat as a matter of fact after day 2 you’re not hungry that much anymore you don’t know what you’re talkin about I don’t know how you could stand up there in Li God help us with people like you you have studies that nobody’s checking out and people applauding you sit down before God knocks you down…
    You must be working for the food industry and the pharmacy because you want everybody sick this keto diet is perfect people I’ve done it nothing helped me lose weight this I lost 38 pounds in 6 months what I did was I fasted for 15 hours which is easy you sleep about eight or nine and then the rest you can have coffee and basically by the time you shower and do some things the time flies now your metabolic and your cells rejuvenates yes immediately rejuvenate and you eat after that whatever you want so she’s got it all backwards the keto diet in the beginning she stated that it was fasting for certain amount then she stated that it was low-carb high-fat she’s mixing everything up she’s mixing up with Keto diet and fasting get it right lady and stop fooling the people people do your own research don’t listen to her and waste your time

  • Im on keto atm just to lose weight and try something new… but truth is that ive lost as much weight counting the same calories before without doing keto… 1500 cals keto and non keto. But im thankful. I learned alot of new things and been eating tons of veggies now. I have never had constipation or diarrhea on keto

  • A breast-fed baby is in ketosis. Completely natural. All I can say is: Be a scientist….not someone that drank the coolaid.

    Roughly 20,000 years ago (before agriculture began), Carbohydrates were not available and EVERYONE was in ketosis. No cancer. No diabetes. No heart disease. No autoimmune disorders. Carbs=elevated insulin. Elevated insulin=Insulin resistance. Insulin resistance=type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes drives practically every disease people suffer from today.

    I know someone who is turning 50 and just had a heart attack. He was told he also had type 2 diabetes. What do you think came first? Carbs caused the diabetes. Diabetes caused the heart attack.

  • She mentioned discipline in such a stern tone like it’s a bad thing for anyone to develop. “part of the problem is keto is not a quick fix” not being a quick fix is a problem to you? Lol, you just want to indoctrinate dumb people smh

  • I have temporal lobe epilepsy, not even severely, and you will NEVER get me off the keto/carnivore diet. You will also Never get me to not fast on the regular, eating OMAD and also having a 3 day fast monthly. Fat is good for my brain, for all of our brains. We do NOT need fiber at all! We need to eat a meat-heavy diet and fast regularly. This is coming from a thin now healthier post-meno woman, so bug off with your vegan plant-based agenda!

  • Very misleading. I am on keto /paleo diet for 8 month, I lost 25 lb and my A1C was 6,4 and now is down to 5.7. My health it`s better than 1 year ago. Keto / paleo works.

  • i just came across a couple of obese ketos and their diet. and them trying to force their poor child to eat like them. it was horrendous. long story but they and their diet (coprse diet) literally stunk. i just hope their kid turns vegan one day unless the diet kills him first as it will them.

  • I think it is pointless to say this type of diet is bad because it really improves all the major indicators doctors use to measure health. It would be better to reconcile the vegan/low fat diet with Keto and discover what is essential to health and what is just personal choice. Stop the diet wars.
    BTW, if it can be demonstrated that a low fat, or any other diet can truly CURE first phase insulin response and remain cured even when that diet is no longer followed then that would be an improvement over a low carb diet that doesn’t seem to cure that response. I know of only one study that claims to have cured the first phase response and that was with only some patients who underwent gastric bypass surgery.

  • I don’t understand these so-called expert doctors anytime people are researching how to lose weight how to bring they blood sugar down they blood pressure down how to stay healthy and any time something comes up with another way of eating and people jump on the bandwagon they want to throw a monkey wrench in it but these so-called doctors and experts they’d much rather throw you a pill. And tell you these pills will help you with your problem of what’s going on with you. But the pills that they are prescribing us the side effects of long will kill you. People we have to be proactive in our own health. So if you are trying to do the keto diet do you restart learn the right way of eating how to do the diet if that’s what you want to do but his pros and cons of every diet that you be on you just have to learn the right way of doing it.

  • The part Keto critics seem unable to understand is that of the 75% fat used by the body is from the body itself. When you are in ketotsis you only need a single meal a day. You do not feel hungry.
    I have lost 50lbs in 90 days. That is not because I ate gobs and gobs of fat. It’s because my body burned gobs and gobs of stored fat.

  • thank you very much for this very informative video! My friend is on a ketogenic diet and when I see what she eats, I doesn’t look healthy to me at all.

  • I totally agree that a plant based diet makes more sense intellectually as well as from an environmental perspective. But I think you’re going to have an uphill climb trying to convince keto junkies that they’re on the wrong path. Personally, I have failed at trying. I have dozens of associates who have lost hundreds of pounds on keto and have kept it off for 5 years or more so far. They have cleared their bodies of inflammation, reversed heart problems and diabetes, and lowered their blood pressure. One in the UK has arrested the growth of his benign brain tumor with keto, and others no longer have seizures. I try to tell them that they’e reversed their conditions because they have eliminated refined sugars and processed foods and have lost weight. But they feel they would never have been able to lose the weight in the first place without keto helping to suppress their hunger and remove their cravings for the junk they once ate. Also, they have just as many prominent doctors and health care gurus waving studies in their faces convincing them that keto is a safe and healthy diet Eric Westman, Eric Berg, Jason Fung, Peter Attia, Jeff Volek, Tim Noakes, Thomas De Lauer -on and on and on. When people find something that is sustainable for THEM and has resulted in weight loss and disease reversal for THEM, it’s like beating a dead horse trying to talk them out of it. But keep up the good work. There are plenty of us enjoying our fruits, grains, and beans, and I feel like a million bucks since I ditched keto and started eating a whole foods, plant based diet.

  • The Physicians Committee combines the clout and expertise of more than 12,000 physicians with the dedicated actions of more than 175,000 members across the United States and around the world.

    Our efforts are dramatically changing the way doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer. By putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to take control of their own health.

    And we are also building a new way of viewing research. Since 1985, the Physicians Committee has worked tirelessly for alternatives to the use of animals in medical education and research and advocating for more effective scientific methods.

    Our staff of physicians, dietitians, and scientists is working with policymakers, industry, the medical community, the media, and the public to create a better future for people and animals.


    The Physicians Committee is dedicated to saving and improving human and animal lives through plant-based diets and ethical and effective scientific research.


    Creating a healthier world through a new emphasis on plant-based nutrition and scientific research conducted ethically, without using animals.

    hmm… makes me wonder….

    maybe this is propaganda

  • If you eat lots of leafy green veggies on keto you don’t have nutrient deficiency issues. Her claim on that point makes no sense. And since you should be eating lots of leafy green vegetables regardless of how your structure your diet, she should know about them and how nutrient packed they are…

  • It is interesting how the remarcs in this thread is so mocking, condescending and demeaning towards keto interested people. Why? There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to diets. Eat what makes you feel and look healthy, vibrant and happy. Do your own critical research, and be content and at ease with that. Take responsibilty and make your own respectable choices for your own unique health. Everyone dies anyway: meat and fat lovers, vegetarians, vegans, and everyone inbetween… e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e dies. So live how you choose, and accept people who choose to live differently from you, no matter how they choose to eat and what to believe in.
    I do not agree with this “specialist”, simply because her talk about and opinion about cholestorol is way outdated, I think, but I still find it interesting to listen to, and it is “healthy” just to listen to the critics once in a while:)

  • Big news, the ADA finally admits that they were wrong about the ketogenic diet!

  • Heller is categorically wrong at 2:10… people are getting the very nutrients she says they arent. No one is eating massive amounts of fat and mayonaise on a Keto diet.
    Jenna Jameson has had spectacular results on Keto losing 63lbs(went from 187-124.6) in abt 5 mos.
    She eats meat, cheese, vegetables etc. She has been clear she feels better and feels healthier since doing Keto. She also added in intermittent fasting that allowed herself to break through a weight loss plateau when she was 130lbs. Intermittent fasting allows the body to get into a burning mode of fats vs digesting and storing when you eat X times over the course of a day. Eating from 11am-6/7pm and then refraining for a few hours before you sleep which makes the fast go easier is how are body normally works. You shouldnt be eating anything when your winding down and going to sleep.

    What you have here is propaganda to stick to paid weight loss programs, buy books etc
    It’s not rocket science,

  • What is safer to do for a type 1 diabetic? Should they do low carb so they have to inject less insulin, or try a plant based low fat diet and increase insulin use? Perhaps a plant based low carb diet with vegetable oils and vegetables as the main bulk of it? What is less harmful?

  • So in résumé.
    It is prooved bénéfices for 2/3 peoples.
    And you make suppositions based on your own point of wew, wiches are not science but just spéculation about why it could be bad…

    For cogntivie improovement and neuro degenerative deseases you totaly miss the link between BHB and neurotrophics grows factors ( NGF, BDF …) and the anti apoptotic advantage of a supervise kéto diet. It show very interested effect of mitochondrial effectivity.

    For vitamine C needs ar’,t the same in keto even if we have lot of greats sources in organ meat, black radish, cilandro….

    keto flu is not a desease it is just the body regulate électrolytes balance. Just have to take more of it and no flu.

    And pollution is everywere, infortunaltely. I’am aware about level of oxydation of fat and make prudent choices based on totox indix. My ratio omega 3/ 6 is excellent.

    And we do eat vegetables. in larges proportions than regular peoples to have enough potassium,magnesium and others minerals we need more.
    We have goods nuts like pécan, brésil or macadamia. Nuts are good for prevention of heart deseases btw… Keto increase also gaba and keep your tension low.

    You dont eat less because you arnt interested in “poor variety”. Keto is not borying, just you dont have craving for food, and intermitent fasting is very easy. You can skeep a day without impact on your productivity.
    You just dont have the same relation to hungry.

    Breaths change only the first 10 days, and come back to normal. it is not a repulsive smell, but Something like sweet apple.

    The fact is keto is not for everyone:
    Yes it is a bad idea during pregnancy. ( for a strict plant base diet) ( spina bifida is maybe more assocated by insufisiant folates of poor diet than kétosis, but dont take the risk if it is one.)
    It is sensible to gender, Works better for men and menauposed women, that middle age women…
    It is Dangerous for catégory touched by génetics hyperlipidemia, and other rares but serious conditions.
    It will not cure your cancer, each cancer is unique some have advantages of ketones other not… But it exerce a down regulation on Mthor and igf, invoveled in risk of hormo linked ones…

    You just fear what you d”ont understand and disrupt your mental confort.

    Try to invit someone who dosnt think like you next time.

  • I agree on a few parts but also disagree with you on others Doc! I’m a sprinter and have done KETO for over 2 years and it’s only improved my performance mentally and physically, all my clients who try it are winning, none of us ever felt tired, we only feel strong and very energetic (our breath and B.O. are not a problem either)and what do you mean we have a limited supply of food?! Ummm… my cooking is very sexy and delicious… and I switch foods everyday! You’ve never even done KETO!!! ���� with all due respect, I understand some of the things you say, BUT… This is the diet that most people fail at doing CORRECTLY!!! That’s why they end up with a bad breath and bad odor and fatty livers!!! Obviously you’re singing for a crowd that worships carbs and candle a combo of keto and fasting. But to each their own! ������������ i know Keto has helped me and many others! Ask Dr. Eric Berg and maybe you two should have a 1 on 1 video and debate it out and share it with the public!!! Otherwise everyone is confusing the poor public watching all these videos!

  • Calling fasting a fad diet?!? My god you don‘t really know what‘s working for diabetics. Or might it be that the insulin producers are paying you for saying all of this?

  • weight goes down, HDL goes up, TG goes down but nooooo LDL stayed the same, keto sucks (lol). it is so many studies done on keto that’s even pointless watching someone try to say carbs are great look around you, we are living an epidemic, diabetes, heart attacks and we can reverse all that or better, prevent all that. We should get the government to change their approach on this “pyramid scam” and go back to look to nature for answers.

  • At about 2 minutes into the video it was mentioned during the process of Gluconeogenesis that muscle is eaten to manufacture glucose.This statement is not true. Although the liver does produce glucose after the glycogen stores are low, this glucose comes from the body’s fat in the form of triglycerides (3 fatty acids with a glycerol backbone). It makes no sense from an evolutionary standpoint that if you go without food for a day or so you would start to lose muscle. If cavemen on an extended hunt lost muscle each time their liver produced glucose for their brain then none of us would be here. On the other hand it makes perfect sense that our body would use fat, our storage energy, and preserve muscle.

  • Lorenzo’s oil has been replaced by the insanely high priced CBD, what you can do for yourself for hundreds, big phama wants over $30,000 a year to do the same.

    On a call with investors this week, GW Pharmaceuticals revealed the price of Epidiolex, its newly-approved, marijuana-based drug for rare forms of epilepsy.
    Designed to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy using a marijuana compound called CBD, the drug is the first medication of its kind to get FDA approval.
    The person leading the company’s commercialization efforts in the US said the goal is to keep the price of the drug on par with other epilepsy medications.
    A marijuana-derived drug that recently became the first of its kind to win federal approval is not going to be cheap.

    Called Epidiolex, the drug is designed to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy using a cannabis compound called cannabidiol (or CBD).

    On a call with investors this week, British-based GW Pharmaceuticals, who makes the drug, said it would cost roughly $32,500 per year. The medication does not contain THC, the well-known psychoactive component of marijuana responsible for the drug’s characteristic high.

    Julian Gangolli, who leads GW’s commercialization efforts in the US, said the price point would keep Epidiolex in line with other epilepsy drugs and was largely based on feedback from insurance companies. The figure is on the lower end of what analysts projected the drug would cost back in 2016, when they estimated it would range from between $30,000 to $60,000 per year.

  • 17:28 where is the Keto data? wasn’t it the whole point of that study to get that plot right??
    OK, found it:
    Keto: Pre: 114.1 ± 16.2 Post: 153.9 ± 27.4
    Control: Pre: 88.4 ± 13.9 Post: 79.0 ± 13.9

  • Sounds like a doomsday diet. It is so amusing how the minions glommed onto Keto. Anything to keep eating fat.��they are wrong they are dead wrong.

  • Doesn’t Santa know that the need for toys is the result of a conspiracy by the evil, greedy toy industry? Our Paleo ancestors never played with toys. 😉

  • Great video. Wait for the ketards and carnitardsl to find this video and spam it with their amazing research methodology called the anecdote. �� Amazing

  • Excellent presentation with a great summary on the real cientific evidence on Keto diets, thanks alot for posting it!! Maybe you could add as a YouTube note/text the values on LDL of the Keto group at 17:35 Thanks! ��

  • Heart disease due to Atherosclerosis and T2 diabetes is completely caused by diet. There may be genetic factors and exogenous factors such as use of birth control involved, but the main cause is 100% dietary. Humans are considered obligate carnivores. We cannot survive in the wild without meat in any biome in the world, whether it is the forest, grassland, tundra. The only way to survive in the forest is to kill a deer and eat it. We cannot survive eating grass and leaves. but We can survive without eating any plant foods and still be healthy. This is 100% proof that humans are obligate carnivores. I would even argue that dogs have a higher plant tolerance than humans. I will even add that our natural prey are most likely to be ruminant mammalian herbivores because by eating them head to tail, we get 100% of every nutrition we need. Every species have a single natural prey that gives them 100% nutrition. No animal eat a balanced diet.

    Every single mammalian species eat a diet that is high in ANIMAL calories. Carnivores like wild cats get their calories from eating flesh, which is animal calories. Herbivores on the other hand eat grass and leaves, but the main source of their calories is not Plant Calories. This is because they have gut bacteria that is able to convert the fiber that they eat into Saturated ANIMAL fat and ANIMAL proteins. Think about it. Cows eat grass all day long, but their body is not made out of grass or plant matter. They are completely made out of animal proteins and fat. This is Because the main Source of their calories is still animal Calories. ALL Mammalian Species eat a diet that is high in ANIMAL calories. Some herbivores may not tolerate meat; however, this is mainly due to lack of enzyme allowing them to digest and absorb the meat. But plenty of natural herbivores will eat meat in the wild if given the chance and will not be intoxicated by it.

    So what causes heart disease and T2 diabetes? It is eating an unnatural diet, disobeying what mother nature intended. We are meant to receive 100% of our calories from animals because we do not have the ability to convert plant matter into ANIMAL calories. But so many people are getting their calories from sugar, starch, high fructose corn syrup, plant oils (such as soybean and corn) which are all plant calories. This is what leads to disease and deterioration. There is a reason why vegans look malnourished and deteriorate. Vegan deterioration is real and you can check out Vegan Deterioration’s youtube video. Heart disease and T2 diabetes is just part of deterioration because you are getting too much of your calories from plant foods. Remember 90% of the calories in a Mcdonalds meal is plant calories. You have the bread, ketchup, French fries, soda. The meat is only a single piece and is very thin. Think about this, would you feed what you have been eating to any wild animals: Gorillas, Tigers, Pandas, Giraffes, elephants? Humans are really no different.

  • I had an uncle that smoked, drank and ate all the wrong foods in excess. He was grossly overweight and feeling poorly all the time. Then he started the keto diet. Four months after he started keto he suddenly died. He
    was hit by a bus. Just saying…..

  • OH MY GOD, Keto saved my husband’s life…. He had a quadruple bypass in 2013 we switched over to veganism but had a heart attack after being a VEGETARIAN for 6 years. We switched over to KETO and everything changed within 15 days of the switch over. Blood workup went normal, type 2 diabetes went away with MANY MORE PROBLEMS clearing up. His Cardiologist was amazed and side if he did not know him he would think that there was NOTHING WRONG with him. This guy above is all FACK NEWS. if you would like to see the story of someone that is living as a Keto person you need to go to UCRogyDm46jk_A9XHdTxcZcg (Loving It On Keto ) or you can go see the video “Keto Saved My Husbands Life” at this link = It is one of my first videos so don’t expect to much, just the story of how it helped.

  • lol. this video is just silly… it is obvious the channel doing the reporting is sponsored by major food sponsors who sell carbage. You do KETO and have your own doctor compare your stats before and after and even your doctor will become a convert… It is an old respected way of eating that has always been healthy and the food companies hate when their market sheep give up bad carbs and begin to eat healthy (as in a Keto way of life)

  • I have been keto and IF for 2 years. When I started I lost 50 lbs of fat in a few months. I have kept it off easily and happily. My doctor says my blood work looks great. I feel wonderful and healthy. This is not an extreme diet. It is not a fad. It is a lifestyle change.

    Ignorant, biased, one sided propaganda stories like this are doing more harm than good. There is a mountain of credible scientific evidence in favor of the efficacy and safety of the ketogenic diet. I have to believe this story was created with an agenda.
