  1. Don’t believe anything anyone says about a diet before they at least properly define the diet. More often than not, the low carb diet comparisons are generally using a lower high carb diet, not anywhere near what low carbers consider low carb: < 10%

  2. I have tried each and every snapchat hack tool and only Snapchat Hax0r helped me. Search for it on google.

    I make my own bacon it’s easy it’s cheap and taste better than the store bacon. Five or six days of curing and then I smoke it to 155°. Pancetta is similar to bacon just requires different spices and longer curing.

    Insulin is the monster. What causes insulin spikes. ?
    1. Grains..oatmeal, cereal, bread
    2. Fruit. Bananas, apples, and honey
    3. Pastas…spaghetti, noodles, etc.
    Stick to meats and vegetables to keep fat-storing insulin levels low.

  5. I was about to dislike, But she is correct, you can eat carbs but only get your carbs from non GMO foods like vegetables and less from grains.

  6. But, I have gallstones…I don't really get to choose what to eat anymore that has fat in it…if I do eat anything with too much fat I will have an attack in my upper abdomen.

    So I must follow a low fat diet to relieve stress on my gallbladder.

  7. Low fat diet has gotten me nowhere, except overweight. Low carb diet (healthy fat) with intermittent fasting has been a game changer for me. Only carbs I eat are veggies, 1 low GCI fruit per day, and oatmeal every other day with flax seed and cinnamon. Not going back to the bullshit spouted from the "medical community".

  8. Nobody ever mentions the strategy to cycle both. Best of both worlds. Same long-time effect. Why are people so attached to a dietary strategy as if it were a social identity is beyond my reason.

  9. It may be that living a low carb lifestyle is a skill that must be developed over time. Just like anything else, your not very good at doing anything at first but over time you get better and better. That may be the key. Trial and error until you find what works for you. A Korean friend once told me it takes about 30 days for your body to properly adapt to a new way of eating. So don't expect to be an expert at low carb living over night. It takes time. However don't forget to drink lots and lots of water. Most people don't drink anything even remotely close to enough water. It's really basic but so very vital to healthy living. You need that water to flush your system out of all the toxins in the digestive system. All those chemical reactions to convert food to energy produce waste and that waste needs to be flushed out every day.

  10. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but have you noticed that it’s always big pharma telling you not to do something that actually works. For example, low carb diet has proven to help you lose weight and become more healthy, there are a million people who have done it successfully and have been unsuccessful on a low fat diet. They can’t make money on healthy people with no medical conditions so they keep peddling their crap to keep you going to the doctor for more and more medications that don’t help.

    You have told us to fruit carbs and low fat! When will you finally admit you were wrong? Still advocating syrupy fruits! Listen lady there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate! And fat on meat is good for our heart, sugar is deadly and wheat gives us leaky gut!

  12. Though I haven't been believing many things coming out of the Mayo Clinic lately, everything mentioned here in this video I agree with. There is a proper way to do low carb.

  13. Essentially, they said, Yes, the Low carb diet works, but we don't want you to do it. Such bullsh*t. The diet works, but you cant make money off it, so here's some low-fat products to purchase from us.

    Caution: low carb does NOT equal keto! Please read through some of these studies quoted by medical experts (if they even post them) and you’ll find that they are referring to diets with around 20% of calories coming from carbohydrates (any carbohydrate) and sometimes high protein, which is more than enough to keep insulin levels high and cause problems.

  15. This particular cholesterol guidebook “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is not just high quality answer yet inexpensive also. I started to employ this adhering to my personal doctor`s proposals to lower my blood cholesterol level. I notice good results within 2 weeks merely. It is fantastic! The pain has disappeared and also my energy level has grown in each passing day. The final results of my labs proved that I am improving. .

  16. So more weight loss with low carb, but can’t advocate it… but advocate a diet doesn’t work as well. Oh, a well formulated low carb diet meets all 27 essential nutrients, including fiber… but still wants grains. Grains are the issue with how the body metabolizes… boy, they just can’t get reality, can they?

  17. I didnt eat clean keto and regret it now. I ate dirty keto for a year and it put strain on my gallbladder. Now I'm awaiting surgery soon. This sucks!. If your going on keto please stay away from all that animal grease.

  18. I did this diet since 2010 and for 3 months of those beginnings ive lost more than 70 lbs but was a bit unhealthy because i was eating on low proteins too so it was a bit of a crash diet

  19. I'm a vegan and I only eat lentil. Now I'm 48, fart excessively, and name my farts after famous ballerinas.

    I think any long -term diet restriction is unhealthy for you, and difficult to stick with anyway. A balanced diet of natural foods that are not made in factory and exercise always works long term. Low Carb/Low Fat work short-term for many, but I ALWAYS hear about people gaining back the weight. There is no "magic" diet other than natural foods eaten in moderation and in balance.

  21. 12 weeks on keto, down 30 lbs. wife down 19. We have also cut down our caloric intake a lot which obviously also helps.
    Original goal was for 40 lbs. weight loss. New goal is 60 lbs. that will be from 243 to 183.
