  1. My life has changed since I found out how to lose.weight. I have lost 39 pounds in 2 months since I started taking this Ketogenic Diet my stomach is smaller and I have more energy.

    1. Berndinho86 omg I am starting Leto right now. It’s the most miracle working diet I’ve ever seen thank you so so much

    2. Berndinho86 SCAM this is a fake account all the videos on her channel are the same video but different thumbnails

    3. Sure we know sugar, simple carbs, and even dairy are bad, but I don’t see how eating whole vegetables is a problem? What about digestion, soluble fiber, brain function, serotonin levels, cofactors, essential micronutrients, and more that we get from vegetables and even fruit? How can you be healthy if you are lacking in these areas and functions of the body. My body doesn’t function on high fats alone. I need fiber. I mostly eat carbs, fats, and limit protein. I lost 100 lbs staying active by biking and boxing and also have a six pack with loads of stamina. I did not do Keto once. Bacon also has nitrites and those do cause cancer and are inflammatory. I don’t agree that vegetables or tubers are unhealthy when we’ve obviously evolved eating them. I have more energy reserves and could climb a mountain better than you because I eat more carbs and probably have better gut health and brain health than someone on Keto. It’s unnecessary, so therefore not worth it. Vegetables serve a purpose and are healthier than bacon. Complex carbs, as in fiber, are essential for a healthy body. You obviously haven’t seen the studies in China where they changed their diet to mostly meat and fats without increasing sugar or simple carbs and they still contracted cancer. It’s called balance. Eating mostly ice cream is bad, eating mostly protein is bad, eating mostly carbs is bad, eating mostly fats is bad. It’s pretty obvious. Let’s go hiking or biking you won’t last a minute. I walk up stairs with people who are supposedly healthy all the time. Some are body builders, athletes, and even other boxers. I have noticed they all breathe heavily while going up the stairs and I don’t, yet they all have special diets, including Keto. Fiber in high quantities is essential for many bodily functions. Keto limits complex fiber intake and is therefore not the answer to a balanced body, mind, and soul.

    4. That channel just keep posting the same videos over and over total crap!!!!!!!!!!

  2. It’s not really a diet,you have to change your way of eating forever,best decision ever made.

    1. @Zuma Man you are misinformed. The human body has TWO sources of fuel glucose or ketones. You get into trouble when you try to run your body on both fuels at once. The body can convert protein into glucose for use by the muscles but the brain runs much more efficiently on ketones. Just saying 1 apple equals 1 mile run is a huge deceptive over simplification

    2. Grace Mccraw yes and no. It depends on the person for me i go on keto to lose weight then when i switch back to normal so i use it as diet a way for me to lose weight when i go off it I can maintain my weight with normal eating but have to not eat consistently just meals no snacks this way I maintain while enjoying all food for me when I lose 25 lbs I take a break and maintain for two weeks maybe then get back I might gain 2-4 lbs which isn’t much

    3. Just eat juicy meats steak and dark skin chicken and greens obviously eggs lol just meat and greens that’s wat i do

    4. Zuma Man you sir, are misinformed using outdated studies. Keto and fasting is the best thing anyone can do for themselves in terms of health. And btw, give me pasture raised no sugar added bacon over a stupid apple any day. Lol

  3. Dont fear protein! Gluconeogenesis is demand driven, and happening to some degree, all the time. When you eat protein, the body needs insulin to use that protein, but if insulin is going up, and there is no carbs coming in, glucose is going to fall. So to prevent a too low blood sugar, the body stimulates gulcagon, which tells the liver to put out a little glucose to balance out the effect of insulin going up. Craig Emmerich explains this beautifully, listen to him debunking these “keto myths” making people afraid. Protein in the most important macro nutrient, and being in ketosis depends only on reducing the carb intake, not making the fat intake 70% or more. You can burn the fat on your plate, or the fat on your body.

    1. this is exactly what im doing here in canada and seems to work for me :0, on the other end too much fats might increase cholesterol levels

  4. No worries people you don’t have to EAT 70% sticks of butter to do keto: You can do pecans, avocado’s, bacon, ribeyes, dark meat chicken quarter with the skin, salmon, etc…. you can add olive oils, butters or coconut and oil based dressings, ranch, caesar etc…that are higher in fat, you can eat all the green salads you can handle, you can do asparagus, brocolli, cauliflower (made into mashed versions is just like having regular potato mashed) etc…. It’s a great way to eat. It’s enjoyable. You can also have cheeses and dairy just not SKIM versions. You can have heavy whipping cream in your coffee and even sweeten it with Stevia or artificial sweeteners just not sugar. You’ll probably FEEL a few day of your body changing so drink alot of water and stay up on your electrolytes. You don’t have to worry about salt on this diet either you flush etc sodium. So use pink sea salt on your food and even salt substitutes like Nu Salt that have potassium. You might want to supplement with a Magnesium too. It’s a great way to live lost 50 pounds on it since December so far. You feel great, mentally focused, alert and calm. The first week you’ll have a few ups and downs while you’re going into ketosis but if you drink alot of water and keep up on electrolytes you probably will not have anything much at all.

    1. @Gregory Michaels I have been Vegan for years. Never been sickly or prone to illness. Did keto before going Vegan. Had chest pains, low energy, headaches, etc

    2. @quaweeguy How long did you do Keto? If you did it for a week then you were going through the Keto flu or sugar/carb withdrawals.

  5. I’m sure his boss, Oprah, doesn’t like him promoting Keto too much since her Weight Watchers stocks have plummeted.

    1. What are you talking about. The  WW program teaches you how to cook your own food. I think you’re confused and thinking it’s like Nurtra system or Jenny Craig. Personally, I like WW and it serves a purpose for those who can’t stick to a low carb/keto woe.

  6. I started my Keto diet march 3, 2019, my waist measured 44 inches at the start, today march, 23, 2019 my waist measured 37 inches..I’m ECSTATIC!!

    1. @GREAT expectations well you’re at a caloric deficit. Eventually you have to eat enough to maintain

    2. GREAT expectations congratulations on your success!! Did you grab meal plans from a website? I’m very interested but would love some guidance from a reliable source!!

    3. @Larkin Huey “Normal” is redefined. I lost 60 pounds 11 months ago and have gained no weight back. I always alternate between OMAD and 16/8.

  7. The dr I worked with showed me his before and after photos and he got the same results

  8. What really bothers me is people promoting processed foods on keto. Keto is great, but you HAVE to eliminate processed foods, no matter what the package says. It’s POISON! Don’t eat it.

    1. Oh bullshit youll still lose weight as long as the macros are there. What doesnt kill you these days? I bet you’re the life of the party

  9. I believe the keto works, but I prefer more protein for mood, energy and just general satisfaction. But we can agree to get rid of carbs/sugars.

  10. @0:10 tell me he doesn’t look like Ben Stiller doing Blue Steel…😂😂😂😂😂

  11. That table with all that butter on is misleading and totally incorrect, fat should be 70% of your daily calories intake, not 70% of diet weight, the difference is huge, because fat is caloric dense that 70% turns out to be 70 – 100 grams only, the main bulk of your food will be green vegetables.
    This kind of misleading presentation can prevent people from following the wonderful and healthy keto lifestyle.

  12. *After doing keto for 9 months, I’ve lost 67 lbs that exercising alone didn’t do. Changing your eating style for ever because once you start eating sugar and starch, the weight comes back instantly.*

  13. if a globalist luciferian puppet ‘Dr’ Oz promotes something,you can be sure it’s bad for you and is part of some NWO agenda

  14. The key to losing weight is not to eat after 7:30 everyday and exercise with a sweat suit 1 hour a day, and you guaranteed to lose weight if you stick to this plan 👍👍👍👍
