Very educational and would love more diet review videos. It’ll help keep everyone informed and debunk a lot of those myths.

Reply Wrist disabled Writer says: May 28, 2019 at 4:26 am I was at an epilepsy symposium (I think it had 4 epileptologists speaking ) and one doc said it was originally called the starvation diet. I asked at the end if it’s still called that and he said no Reply Mary Smith says: May 28, 2019 at 7:00 am Dr. Mike!!! I am a RN who has a young friend who is convinced the "Paleo" diet is the best, most medically sound diet to follow. She has been conditioned to believe this. I cautioned her to question diets that delete entire food groups, but she is convinced. Could you do a comprehensive video on the paleo diet? Pretty please? I know this comment is over a year after you made this video, but I'm not sure how you monitor questions, or even if you monitor them. Reply Juniper Hill says: May 28, 2019 at 9:11 pm The keto diet was recommended for me to try to reduce systemic inflammation, and it has helped with that. I’m supposed to stay on it long-term, but they told me once you’re really stable you can break it once every few weeks and your body will re-set easily. I really hopes that’s true.

Information on Nutrition is better then ever before and we have access to it. I don't diet all the time but it helped me find a balance and a system that works for me a 16 hour fast in the morning a small wrap for lunch low in carbs and then a savory home cooked dinner, along with daily exercise.

People cave following any diet. Pretty dumb to not recommend it because of something so anecdotal. Perhaps saying I only recommend this diet to people that aren't weak-minded is the more sensible thing to say.

Reply vonkäuen Theforbidden says: June 7, 2019 at 7:49 pm "Hard to follow, due to requiring you to drastically change your eating habits" Sure is. But for someone like me, an obese person who may be borderline pre diabetic, that's precisely what needs to happen. If I go on eating like I used to, I will probably die, if not from the health effects, then out of despair when I get so fat I can't walk. That's a fact. I'm simply too fat. I either lose it or I'm probably dead, but, honestly, life in this bloated form is barely a life. It must end. I'll starve myself if I must, but one way or another, this fat is coming off. I'd cut it off if I could do so safely (sadly this isn't toon world, where you can do that without dying), even if it hurt. I'll do whatever I have to to be rid of it. Keto makes fast food difficult. Eliminating cheat days prevents me from going backwards. Eliminating sugar and carbs would help with my condition and increases my ability to drop weight. Eating a high fat diet means I eat mostly meat and veggies (asparagus and spinach are two favorites. Big fan of pickled cabbage. Also a fan of Mushrooms and peppers), as well as some dairy. I like meat, and don't mind veggies, especially if cooked in meat juices. I'm also crafty, so I can figure out ways to make my favorites without carbs. This diet forces me to do what I should have done a long time ago: stop. Just stop the sugar, the toxic fast food, and the unhealthy amount of carbs. I've been on it two weeks. I've never felt better. I think I am starting to get the keto flu, though. I'll weather it. Reply Chris says: June 7, 2019 at 10:08 pm I know you aren't looking for anecdotes, but I'm a 37yo male with no weight problems who has been on keto for about four months now. I did lose a few pounds, as expected, of water weight. But in general, I feel fantastic. The biggest reason I went on it is because I read a study that suggested it might help treat GERD. I didn't want to be on a PPI the rest of my life, and I wasn't happy popping two pepcid a day. Three docs told me there wasn't much else I could try. Two weeks after starting keto, my reflux stopped *completely*. No exaggeration, for the first time in twenty years, I don't take a daily antacid, and I can eat without pounding on my chest and getting the food to go down (had a scope that showed the sphincter muscle at the top of my stomach wasn't closing all the way due to inflammation). Also–and let me emphasize that I know this might be entirely placebo–but I've been using my inhaler a lot less. I often have to go on a prednisone run for a week or so, but it seems like the anti-inflammation properties are even keeping that under control. Biggest drawbacks? No sweets except on very rare occasions. I also try really hard to do a clean keto, so it does cost more. But I don't see this as unsustainable. The daily health benefits are more than worth it to me. I intend on doing this the rest of my life. I just enjoy eating more. A good portion of tasty meat with some steamed veggies, a little high quality cheese, and plenty of oils? HEAVEN!!! Maybe one sweet treat a week, which is okay with me as my sweet tooth isn't overly aggressive. So, it works for me. If it doesn't for someone else, that's okay. I'm not looking to be a keto-evangelist. What I DO hope comes from all the hype is that Americans AT LEAST realize that sugar is poison. We need to get that stuff out of our diet as much as possible. You want a cake or a drink *from time to time*, fine. But our sugar consumption is killing us as a nation. If we can just get that down, then I don't care if you're keto or vegan or carnivore or atkins or Mediterranean or even just a modified standard American. Just eat better, less sugar, and be healthier! tl;dr – keto helped my GERD and, in my opinion, my asthma. I'm a lifer. 🙂 Reply hvd iv says: June 8, 2019 at 4:19 pm i love how everyone is on the keto kick when dr atkins died for doing his diet.to much fat equals heart attack. so go ahead you know what the results of a fat diet is…..death.

Reply Vexcarius says: June 15, 2019 at 5:09 pm False doc. You can drink alcohol during keto but not so much. Vodka, whisky, and super low carb beers are fine. If you do keto long term, it is easy to go in and out of ketosis. Graduation day? No problemo, you can break it as long as you return to the diet the next day. Reply Lisa Erickson says: June 16, 2019 at 9:23 pm I have also hear (don't you just hate that!) that Keto isn;t great for people over 40. IT is recommended that people over 40 do an endocrine reset before trying Keto. Anything on this? Reply Omid N says: June 16, 2019 at 9:28 pm Do a video on the Carnivore Diet Reply Ikaika Arnado says: June 17, 2019 at 6:32 am Keto is legit. I lost like 70 lbs of fat and made mad strength gainz. Of course, I'm on a pretty religious training routine as well, but Keto played a big role, because it was an easy way to stabilize my insulin. Keto is only hard to maintain for people that have a sweet tooth. Staying in Ketosis easy for me, because that's how my body is designed. Every six to eight months I'll do a carb cycle, to get my glycogen stores up, but for the most part. My energy and appetite feels better when I eat ketogenically.

Reply Kimberly Cooper says: June 25, 2019 at 12:50 pm Nutritional deficiencies from cutting out large food groups!?! There is no known nutritional deficiency from not eating carbohydrates. The Inuit and Maasai traditional diets are animal fats and animal proteins. The Inuit traditional diet rarely included plants. The Inuit and Maasai stayed healthy and reproducing for thousands of years on their traditional diet. We really aren't genetically that much different from the Inuit and Maasai, especially those of us who are very carbohydrate-intolerant. Read the books:"The Big Fat Surprise" by Nina Teicholz."The Case Against Sugar" by Gary Taubes.Search online for:< "belinda fettke" AND "temperance movement" > The above will give you the history of how we got the garbage nutritional advice and garbage "scientific" research that we have now. Fortunately, honest scientists have been quietly doing research the past 10 to 30 years. Thanks to the internet, they are all able to get that honest research out to everyone now. Reply Summer Tarrabain says: June 28, 2019 at 3:52 am Ugh. I’ve like most of your content, but this makes me so mad.. As a MD I agree with every single evidence based thing you have said and I really wish you emphasized on why the diet has started and not focus so much on the weight loss aspect. What really frustrated me is your recommendation on doing keto short term, for weight loss. This right there is a “ negative behaviour” to recommend to people. As a health care professional and someone who helps people daily on their weight issues It saddens me that you are going with social norms possibly to gain views, I can’t speculate.. But what I can do is ask you as a profession to please be careful when you plan your programs, because a recommendation from a physician is held to a high standard in my books, I’ve worked along side some fantastic MDs I hope you do see this, and see that side of recommending a diet which is really not FULLY backed by science, and if it were so great it wouldn’t of changed names so much. I’d much rather see your nutrition 101 spreading awareness to proper nutrition and healthy eating habits. I hope I don’t offend you or anyone, thank you for all you do on the daily. Peace and blessings! Reply Junz says: June 29, 2019 at 8:14 pm Your in denial mate, if u need evidence you need to become a lawyer, anecdotal evidence works as long as all the parameters are the same, your patients just like u probably ate higher amounts of carbs.

Reply Mssarah62182 says: July 4, 2019 at 4:49 pm Love your shirt!! Reply James777 Ko says: July 4, 2019 at 11:10 pm You only lose water weight within the first week of doing keto, after that, you are burning mostly fast because your glucose/water stores are gone.Keto is extremely sustainable. In fact, ketosis is our most natural state. First of all, we are all born in the state of ketosis and remain so as long as we are breast fed. For about 2.5 million years 95% of man was in the state of ketosis. It really wasn't until around 1980 we started consuming mega high amounts of carbs due to the unwarrentedscare of fat causing heart disease. We went from consuming 2 lbs of sugar a year to a whopping 185 pounds a year. That's 1/2 pound or more of sugar ever day, and you probabablydon't even realize your doing it. Every 4 grams of carbs is 1 teaspoon of sugar. Look at what you eat in a day and add up that sugar. About 44 teaspoons is 1/2 pound of sugar. It's also been clinically proven the keto diet reduces the spread of cancer and even makes tumors smaller. And, in rare cases, will make cancer go into remission. There are absolutely no nutritional deficiencies on the keto diet. There is not one single vitamin, mineral, nutrient, or micro-nutrient that you can't get from meatand dairy, not to mention the veggies you can eat on keto. While the so called "bad" cholesterol can increase on a keto diet, this is NOT a good marker for heart disease and this fact is becoming more and more excepted in the medicalcommunity. The true test is the NMR lipid test. First of all you want low triglycerides and high HDL for heart health and this is exactly what the keto diet does.Secondly, you want mostly large fluffy cotton-ball particles compared to the tiny BB size ones that stick to your arterial walls. The keto diet will make most if notall your particles the large fluffy kind. The keto diet is extremely heart healthy as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer. There are also no kidney issues with the keto diet. People will say it causes kidney stones but it most certainly does not. What happens on keto is that the anti-inflammatoryproperties of the diet will actually melt existing kidney stones away. Sometimes the stone will separate from the kidney wall thus appearing to cause a kidney stone eventhough it's actually getting rid of it. There are also no bone issues on keto. I've never even heard of such a thing. And there is definitely beyond a shadow of a doubt no increased cancer risk. It'sactually been clinically proven to reduce tumors and stop metastasis of cancer. The keto diet is NOT difficult at all to adhere to. It's actually pretty darned easy especially after you make it through the first 3 days. The "keto flu" is moreproperly labeled as "carbohydrate withdrawal." We were never ever meant to eat the overabundant amount of carbs the average person consumed today. Carbs cause chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, IBS, PCOS, depression and the list goes on. Cut the carbs and heal your body, simple. I've been doing keto for nearly a year and at age 58 I feel the healthiest I've ever been my entire life. I've lost all the weight I needed to and I no longer take a single medication or supplement.

As you say it's not sustainable long term. Those individuals who exercise a lot or have physically demanding jobs surely needs some carbs? What's about gall stones with all the increased fat, we know that they are more prevalent in a fatty diet For years it's always been the Mediterranean diet as a way of life, not a diet as such. Think high fat, pasta, oil, lots of fruit and veg and water, pastries, smaller portions etc. Italy and France have way lower obesity than in the states. They don't rely on processed food, their bread isn't processed like in the states. They walk more, gym culture isn't as big as in the states. I think like you say this may work short term for a special event, but it can't be maintained. I'm sorry but we should've encouraging more fruit and vegetables which are loaded with vitamins and fibre. Moderation is key Reply Ketofication says: July 7, 2019 at 4:04 pm wow!

It is difficult to adhere to if you are addicted to simple carbs and/or rely on the fast and processed foods that are a large part of the standard American/western diet. SAD and the Food Pyramid have been making people sick with chronic diseases for the past 40 years. True, keto is not appropriate for everyone, but so is SAD. Reply Pal Dali says: July 14, 2019 at 1:54 pm Dr mike, I respect you. You’re actually a family physician and not a chiropractor saying vaccines hurts children (dr.berg) However, the Ketogenic diet is very much sustainable. I’ve been Keto since the beginning of 2019 and lost 77lbs. If your friends are going to go get cookies and cream milkshakes… you’ll be so deep in Keto that you actually will Not Want that milkshake. If you’ve been fat adapted for long enough, you can have that milkshake and not come out of ketosis. So it like cheating without actually cheating on the diet. About the increase of LDL… that’s rubbish. Anyone, on Any diet can increase the LDL’s if they’re consuming vast amounts of bacon, or processed meats. That’s just common sense! Moderation is key. Plus, as a doctor, you k ow that 70% of cholesterol is inherited and 30% comes from diet so if your folks and grand folks have bad cholesterol issues then you’re a shoe in for developing cholesterol issues even if you follow a physician/dietician instructed diet.Lastly, it’s not as difficult to stick with as some my think it is. There are sugar free options becoming more and more popular. There’s sugar free ketchup. There’s lettuce wrapped burger options, and if you’re going out to eat with friends you can modify your meal to make it Keto friendly (steak and veggies no potato, or the lettuce wrapped burger as I mentioned, or grilled fish no breading for example)The only thing Keto people have to worry about are other Keto people telling them they’re doing Keto wrong (I call them the Keto police… those people suck)Keto works on others differently, what may work for me may not work for my neighbour. So it’s all about how your body reacts and how quickly you can fat adapt. Btw, the Keto flu is a real thing! However not everyone experiences the same symptoms. I got brain fog for about 5 days where my husband didn’t get any symptoms at all! My friend got leg cramps where my sister said she felt the same as having a hangover. Thank you for shedding light on this!! Reply Dark Rainbow says: July 14, 2019 at 5:10 pm Step 1: Never listen to the news. They’re scientifically illiterate.

When I compare my health and how I felt before keto, I would say the keto diet is actually quite easily sustainable. Also, one thing Doctor Mike didn't not mention is how intermittent fasting can be incorporated into the keto diet and make it even easier to maintain.But he is right, it's not for everyone.

Good protein, lots of green leafies and good fats.It covers everything a human would want.Prove me wrong… Reply SmellyCat says: July 15, 2019 at 7:02 am Keto is VERY sustainable. I've been keto for 5 years. And YES, you CAN have alcohol as liquor has 0 carbs. Stop giving INCORRECT information. Reply SmellyCat says: July 15, 2019 at 7:04 am This diet has been around since the 1950's. It's very well documented. You're full of shit, doc. Reply jade1459 says: July 15, 2019 at 7:14 am Keto, or at lesst low carb diets, are also often recommended to women with PCOS related fertility issues. The issues with insuline resistance make it a great option when monitored by a dietitian or nutritionist. And in general, only needing to count your net carbs when making food choices for meal planning (or even last minute snack purchases) make it much easier to follow too. Though (having seen your keto video already) its nice to know that the GI struggle seems to be common since it's not often brought up. Reply Djprojectus says: July 15, 2019 at 1:55 pm Are you jewish?
