  1. Due to her brainwashing about how the USDA told us to eat, she just couldn't bring herself to believe what he was saying. Her total ignorance regarding why fasting is betting that eating multiple meals a deal was astounding. She must have thought that she was asking gotcha question to that ignoramus Sarah Palin.

  2. Animal based keto seems so hard on the planet, and soooo many animals. Love the idea of plant based keto.

  3. Not true about IF. I managed to gain weight in a 18 / 6 schedule by eating a lot of carbs during the window. Lesson? IF + keto is the winning combination

  4. Dr Mindy Pelz y t chan has great info on fasting. Dr Berg & Dr eckberg both have great info on Keto & fasting on their y t chan.

  5. Actually Katie asked some good basic questions, surprised. I do intermittent fasting, but not full Keto , lower carbs overall , some days better than others.

  6. Te music behind this discussion was out of place, annoying and distracting — please! We can listen to two people talking without noise in the background.

  7. Thanks for this! My life has been transformed by this sort of information. I am turning 65 and for the past 2 years I have combined LOW CARB (Keto) with Intermittent Fasting, lost 82 lbs., came off ALL MEDICATIONS (2 for hypertension, one for high cholesterol and gave up my CPAP for sleep apnea). I am
    Loving life! I started my own YouTube channel “Bill C Thompson – Live Healthy, Finish Strong “

  8. I wonder if anyone ever mentions how you can’t generalize nutrition. Some people will have more success with fat in their diet than others. Those with the APOE4 gene variant can’t tolerate fat in their diets the way those with APOE3 gene variants who can eat moderate amounts of fat and those with APOE2 gene variants can eat a lot more fat without any issues? Those with APOE4 tend to have higher cholesterol and later on in life are more at risk for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. People with type 1 diabetes, for example, can’t thrive on a high carb diet such as mostly fruits because it spikes their blood sugar they would need to take an insane amount of insulin to counteract the constant hyperglycemia. A type 1 diabetic can’t survive on a no carb diet either because they need to eat carbs when they’re experiencing a hypoglycemia to raise their blood sugar. I never hear anyone mention variables like these.

  9. I've said this so many times, infact I've had to explain it to a hand full of doctors, but to make a long story short we started Keto after being Vegan for 6 years… The main reason why we changed over was the health benefits. I had a heart attack at year 6 of a vegan diet, and I was able to cure my heart and vessels, and arteries changing over to the keto diet.

  10. Jeezuz! Been watching videos on YouTube for years and first time I shouted out shut the f????????k up! She was so rude, talking over him etc. Great advice from him though ????

  11. If you say: dont eat till 10 a.m. in the morning. It means, not even a coffee (with a bit butter)?

  12. Sounds like she was doing a very unhealthy keto. Keto should be filled with leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables. I bet she was eating vegetable oils too. ????
