  1. I passed out 2 weeks ago after 3 weeks on keto + intermitten fasting. That was my first pass out ever! and the scariest thing was I passed out when riding my motorcycle!. I was lucky, I only got wounds, no broken bones.

    So if you want to do keto + IF, please ask your doctor first or don't do them too extreme (I almost had not eaten carbs all).

    How ever, this keto + IF is really effective to reduce weight and fix my fatty liver. I still do this keto + IF but not really extreme as it used to be.

  2. Unfortunately, finding a physician who is keto-friendly, or even keto knowledgeable, is one of the labours of Hercules. Many people who turn to keto have seen dozens of doctors and are just getting sicker – they try keto unsupervised in desperation. The advice "Consult your physician" pays no regard to the real life circumstances many people face. By the time you find a suitable doctor nearby at an affordable price you'll need your feet amputated. I ran the idea past my government-provided diabetes dietician. Wow! I'II never mention it to her again.

  3. I am 60 years old (mail, 180cm/98kg). In 2015, I have been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic (last value HbA1c:49 mmol/mol). I suffer from atherosclerosis and since 07/2017 I also have four stands in my heart.
    I am taking a combination pill for high blood pressure and a blood thinner.
    I have not been taking any other pills since 2015.
    I have always tryed to regulate my diabetes with a low-carb diet in combination with exercize but without much succes.
    A few weeks ago I started following a low-carb, low-protein, high-fat diet but I do this alone.
    Since then, the morning values of my glucose have been dropped from around 200 mg/dl to140 mg/dl.
    This encourages me to go on with this type of diet. I do not experience any other side effects yet.
    Do you think I can keep doing this without danger?
    Can you asses the risk I am taking bij doing this alone, and is it possible to do this under supervision of your healt care institute?
    I hope you will see this comment an reply.
    Thanks in advance.

  4. I’m having acid reflux adjusting to keto. It’s discouraging because this is supposed to help the issue. Do I just wait it out? Is this common as my body adjusts? I’m guessing my stomach acid is low, and having trouble breaking things down. Will my body start to produce more acid on its own? Thanks!!

  5. I have loved every moment up to this point. I have a great objection to the advice of “see your doctor first” advice. Mostly because not all doctors are as open minded and knowledgeable as you Mam.

    Most doctors worldwide, with their prehistoric and outdated knowledge of cholesterol and adherence to plant and carbohydrates based diets, their self absorbed ego’s and fat wallets from big pharma, sugar and big food industry, are all to happy to put millions of people at risk for the sake of billions of dollars of profit from sick people.

    There is no money in healthy people. Make them sick, by bad advice from government, based on and in cahoots with crooked (sponsored by sugar industry etc) scientists cherrypicked “research “, then sell them products like insulin and statins at great expense to make them even sicker and then put them in hospitals where the thriving on innocent people continue unabatedly etc. etc.

    Unfortunately most doctors are like politicians, which you know when they lie, usually when their lips move and they are only in it for the money, and not the well-being of the country or its people. Politicians and doctors don’t care, or this would never have become such a big issue, even world wide. Just in America 52% diabetic or pre-diabetic, it’s paramount to democide where money spent in such a fashion could have been much better utilised in taking care of the 40 million plus people living under the breadline in the USA.

  6. Good source of fat is not easily available for normal person's day today life..and yes the it seems to decrease athletic performance which includes instead reaction or brust mood reaction.

  7. My question is:
    If KETO is so dangerous as you say. Did those “Tribes” you mentioned have “Doctors” to monitor their diet and health as they grew up healthy eating a KETOGENIC diet❓????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  8. Hi Dr, I have high cholesterol and high trigliceride level. What happen to these level when I start on low carbohydrate high fat diet? I watched many of your videos, but no mentions of cholesterol and trigliceride factors. And thanks for your great videos.

  9. Dr sarah halberg talk about fat for fuel in athletes…is there such thing as FAT loading for that athletes as carb laoding for atheles with regular diet?

  10. Success I love you I've lost 40 lb on your lchf suggestion I'm off my diabetic medication Hallelujah thank you so much!

  11. I volunteer at some of these long trail races (50 and 100 miles) in Oregon. It would be interesting to get biomarkers as some of these runners run. (assuming it is not too time consuming) Like does it change over the course? aid stations are typically 10 miles apart.
