  1. Keto is for beginners period…… People who act like they know about keto to healthy benefits & have no knowledge at all but have a insecurity of themselves to I'm a winner of superior bs but have know knowledge due to no experience & putting ones health into life & death reality with obesity Massive violations of health & safety with lawsuits

  2. I see the biggest danger of keto being folks who are like, "I can eat all of the meat I want!" The keto diet, like any, needs to be approached by people like, "I want to be healthy." I'm keto because of how my body responds no so I can have a stick of butter for breakfast and wash it down with olive oil.

  3. Seriously? These "women" are going to educate MEN on keto?? ???????????? Stay in your lane women! Keto is about testosterone and hunter gatherer DNA that MEN gain from. Stick with your kale, quinoa, and juice cleanses ladies, we don't need you to have muscle or large brains, it's a man's world ????

  4. 1. Just eat salt and wait
    2. Just eat fiber from salad, braccoli, spinach and another veggies
    3. Drop in performance only occurs over lactate threshold. You can eat carbs before training and your performance come back.
    4. If you are not diabetic you are not able to get ketoacidosis
    5. Yes and no. It depends on you. Keto makes you feel better, so you have less temptation to eat more.
    6. It's opposite. Keto protect your muscle and increase your growth hormome.
    7. "Some studies shows". Yes. Most of studies show that keto increase insulin sensitivity and recude cholesterol level long term.

  5. I like the "Danger 5" at 5:50: "We love the carbs too much to sustain abstinence" – Try this argument with alcoholics and drug addiction…

    I be on a vegetable-rich LCHF diet for a while – without exercise I'm barly reach 1 mmol/l for blood ketones, after 2 h heavy aerobic exercise the highest value I ever reached was 2.5 – so no, keto acidosis seems to be a risk for T1DM only.

    I observed no digestive problems, 1 easy bowel movement a day, no constipation, no diarrhea (I wonder actually how a diet can cause both at the same time???)

    For the fiber-vs-no_fiber battle ongoing: while fiber is technically carb, we mostly don't count it to the carbs because it is indigestible for humans. Some of it – the solutable fiber – is converted to short chain fatty acids by the gut bacteria, which are beneficial for us and fit well into a keto diet. IMHO.

    The recommendation for "keto flu" – which I didn't experienced myself luckily – is not to drink much (that is for the real infectious flu), but to add salt. Insulin seems to hinder sodium excretion and with the drop of insulin the kidneys release some…

    Eating low carbs gets you Diabetes and eating lots of it protects you from it??? In which parallel universe you are living?

    I monitor myself for: BMI, BF%, LBM%, visceral adipose, BP, blood glucose, blood ketones, blood urea, total cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C, triglycerides and VO2max: all parameters improved significantly beside the HDL-C which fell with the LDL-C
    My proposal: look to the scientific literature yourself if you can, Pubmed is a great resource…

  6. I stopped at :26 because it was at this point they waved multiple red flags ???? Bye ????

  7. Ignorant not scientists uneducated easily influenced people are so funny. Just read the comments. Ignorant humans are fascinating. They just like what they want to hear and dislike the opposite regardless of evidence and scientific consensus, and they often do it by creating fantasies and dumb conspiracy theories. So funny and sad at the same time.

  8. There’s entire documentaries saying how meatless diets prevent cancer. Now they say keto prevents cancer. Starting to think the diet doesn’t matter as long as you are an active human and not in a massive calorie surplus.

  9. I went keto for about a year. I felt amazing until I went back to my addiction. Carbs. Now I feel like crap again.

  10. Just reading the testimonies of people who lost a huge amount of weight after going keto tells you that to even get that fat in first place they probably understood carbs as donuts, white bread and pizza. ANY dietary change from that is going to initially yield positive changes. There is HUGE difference between refined carbs and unprocessed wholefoods like starchy roots, seeds, grains, legumes and fruits.

  11. My brother was hospitalized after having gallstones and pancreatitis because of the ridiculous amount of fat in the keto diet. And no matter how much fat he ate he couldn't stop losing weight and looked like he was anorexic

  12. I was on the keto diet for about 6 months. Lost 20 or so. Bit after I Went to the doctor and got a blood test ( highly recommended if you do this diet) and had issues when my numbers for my liver came back.. so I got off of it.. The diet definitely helped me get a better balance with sugar but long term if you go back and forth from keto to your regular (or previous way of eating) you will gain the weight back and then some. Some of my close friends have had this very thing happen. Keto ain’t for everyone but if the diet works for you and you can keep up this way of life for the long run, that’s awesome ????

  13. Came here to hear the opposition viewpoints. Found this to be low level thinking, presenting bias and inaccurate opinions to influence people to continue their bad carb loading habits.
