How To Diet To Lose Fat FOR GOOD (4 Phases)

Video taken from the channel: Jeremy Ethier

A maintenance phase is a period of time where you simply focus on maintaining your current weight and provides a much-needed physical and mental break from the intensity and focus of a fat-loss regimen. THE NECESSITY OF A MAINTENANCE PHASE. Weight loss to a healthy weight for a person’s height can promote health benefits. These include lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure, less stress on bones and joints, and less work for the heart.

It is vital to maintain weight loss to obtain health benefits over a lifetime. Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and can help you prevent and control many diseases and conditions. Setting Goals for Weight Loss.

Being overweight can put you at greater risk for health problems. Losing even a small amount of weight (5 to 10 percent of your total body weight) can reduce and sometimes reverse the risk. Losing weight also may help you have more energy, less joint pain, and a.

The more muscle you have, the higher your basal metabolic rate, meaning the easier it is to keep the weight off once you’ve decided to move into maintenance. Many people find that with very little muscle, you have to keep cutting calories lower and lower to keep off the weight you’ve lost. 3. “Fats in particular are essential in the diet as they help with hormonal function, vitamin absorption — A, D, E, K — and help to keep our hearts and blood vessels healthy. “The predominant type of fat in our diet should be unsaturated, which is found in vegetables such as olive oil, rapeseed oil, avocados, nuts, and seeds, as well as oily fish.”.

The biology of weight loss, and weight maintenance, is a complex process, but here’s a simplified look at the changes that happen following weight loss that can make it all too easy to re-gain weigh. Many diets and diet products claim quick and easy weight loss. However, most practitioners recommend only losing 1–2 pounds (0.5–1 kg) per week ().Setting unattainable goals can. Importantly, nuts taste good — even indulgent — so including them on your menu may help you get more enjoyment out of your meals, and the fat helps keep you fuller, longer.

A 5K, a mud run, whatever—if you’re trying to make fitness part of your long-term weight-loss plan, adding in small competitions along the way can help you keep up with your workout regimen.

Because energy requirements decrease as weight is decreased, diet and physical activity goals need to be revised so that an energy deficit is created at the lower weight, allowing the patient to continue to lose weight.

This is because resolutions that make us feel good about ourselves are poorly structured — they merely restate the goal (e.g., lose weight), but do not elaborate on the steps required to achieve the goal and also tend to lack concreteness or specific details about the behaviors required at each step.

  • I am 4’11 and i use to weigh like 145lbs back in April of 2020 but it is August 2020 and I weigh 130lbs. Im happy BUT I still wanna lose more and be like 115lbs because I am petite and still holding fat around my midriff and arms ����‍♀️����‍♀️ idk what I am doing wrong

  • Loved this video! I was just diagnosed with PCOS this year, kinda bummed that they didn’t catch it when I was younger but yay that the medical field is becoming more and more informed about this condition! This video was wonderful and inspiring because most people have no idea what it is, and the struggles that we face with it! I was on a low carb anti-inflammatory diet and lost around 10-15 pounds along with a workout regimen (yes, weight training saves lives! And I also recommend pilates and yoga, they help tremendously with the stress and learning how to treat your body) when suddenly I started gaining weight again. I just thought I was experiencing a hiccup, but after a month or two of just feeling funny, I went into the doctor and found out that with the little progress I had made that I was pregnant!! This is after being told that I was completely infertile by the time I was 19 and ovarian cancer at 20. I actually argued with the doctor because I had seen a few specialists with the same results, but I am due April first! So yes, it is the leading cause of infertility, but let Linora (who is absolutely amazing) know that managing the condition is one of the best steps for being able to get pregnant. I have other conditions that were supposed to prevent my ever having children so my baby is a surprise and a miracle! Thank you again for this video!

  • “High saturated fats in the blood are associated with CV disease”, there are many who would not agree with this hypothesis. If you are a rabbit(herbivore), yes, that is the case. Suggest watching:

  • Great approach to helping people get healthy. Start moving, make good strokes and start thinking about food a little differently. And remember that making new habits is real work!

  • Great content as usual. Every single I am getting inspired by your videos therefore my mindset has changed alot since I discovered this channel and others like this one. I hope this https://youtu.be/nBEhD9dCfM4 is a sumplement here

  • Hey Guys, if ever had an idea only to make a weight/Fat loss and make your sleep be better than ever you should email me directly! Only if want to have a better health and the exact weight you desire I’ve tried this and never regret that! Hope more people will get the benefit of that what I already got!

  • I went from 300 to 190 and now ive been struggling around 220 to 230 and ive lost all motivation. Im sick of counting calories. Im sick of my lifes main focus being food and weight loss. Ive been over weight since i was 10 and im just tired and over it.

  • Just loved the video bro.. So detailed..
    I liked the fact that u reminded weight loss is a lifetime process… Not just a program.. ♥️♥️��������

  • Yasssss I am so happy that you made this video! I got told I have PCOS about a month ago and I was concerned about gaining weight. Right now I’m at a normal weight but I want to maintain it. So this video is a big help!

  • There is so much info online these days that people who are “Serious” about weight loss can educate themselves. Most of the people like the idea of Losing Weight but can’t put in the work (Lazy). Or lie to themselves (Bullshitter). You can either get results or make excuses, but you can’t do both. Which person are you?!

  • Summary of four phases:

    1) Recovery Phase
    -Restore lean mass, boost metabolic rate, keep muscle,
    -Should take 1-4 months.
    Take your weight and multiply by 14or15 to get your calorie range goal.

    2) Fatloss phase
    -Should be losing around 0.7% of your bodyweight per week.
    (Take your weight and multiply by 0.007 to give you pounds lost every week)
    [Progressive calorie deficit] 15-20%

    So reduce your calories by multiplying your maintenance between.885
    -Should take 6-8weeks at diet calories
    -2 week break at maintenance right after (intermittent dieting)

    Diet tips:
    •High Protein diet (0.7-1gram per pound) Grams should match your weight
    •Spread your protein throughout the day
    •Unprocessed foods
    •Eat satiating foods

    3) Reverse dieting
    •Don’t go back to original maintenance
    •Don’t change your cardio levels
    •No cheat days

    The reverse diet should maintain your weight loss.

    After the diet you should have a new maintenance (multiply your new weight by 14 or 15) and then add 200 calories.

    You can stay at maintenance or bulk up.
    -To bulk:
    •Increase your calories by 15-20%
    •After 1-4 months, go back to phase 2

  • Honestly i cant eat healthy foods cause most of them dont taste nice and when i try to swalllow them i feel sick and gagging cant even swallow it without fealing ill and my tongue is slowly maturing im 19 and cant get slim i do a ton of walking and ruining and its wierd any advise

  • I have PCOS and i do have same kind of symptoms she had and some other as well… i cant do any exercise or any kind of heavy work… If i do i bleed… Dont know what to do… Though i m not that fat… But its frustrating to bleed that much…

  • I’m full without eating my maintenance calories and I feel like every time I have a chest meal I gain weight. I’m stuck idk what to do.

  • I am an endomorph, and I have PCOS. I have been struggling how to lose weight, get my period back and actually eat clean. This is very informative and inspirational. Thank you, Joanna and Linora for this great video.

  • Hey guys, I was wondering if you have heard of this weight loss program before?
    1 ( https://nplink.net/mj0nc9s8 )
    2 ( https://nplink.net/6tjdoguh )
    It looks like a great program to help people lose weight. I was just looking for some options before I made my decision. By the way, I love the content you have been posting lately!

  • Very nice and quality information. Losing weight is not a secret… it’s a science.

    I was trying t lose weight for almost 1 year. Tried different methods and programs that claimed to work but they didn’t.

    During this time i got frustrated but one of my friend shared his weight loss journey that how he changed his living by losing weight. He asked me to try his weight loss method just one time.

    I did as he told me to do but after couple of weeks i started to feel the change in my weight. That was very exciting and now after 3 months i am on the way i wanted to be.

    Now i am excited to say that this weight loss solution is not BS, really works. Just try this out and you will definitely thank me for this.


  • I’ve reduced about 17 pounds of my very own weight just after I enforced this kind of diet weight.It is miraculous to enjoy a possible final result from this. I liked exactly how swift this diet program worked! There is extremely a positive change regarding how my very own clothing fits these days as compared 6 days before. Find a right guide is not easy, you can discover on Google. weight’s name is at the bottom.
    Bella Kaγozko
    good luck

  • I became so fired up to take the dietary regimen. I didn`t alter my diet weight and didn`t increase my exercise level. In merely a short period of 30 days, I currently lost 6 pounds. With the help of this method, I did realize that I ate less and also filled up faster. Find a right guide is not easy, you can research on Google. weight’s name is under.
    Bella Kaγozko
    good luck

  • I lost weight really quickly at first because of my intense calorie deficit, work load, and gym time and got back to my high school weight. I’ve plateaued now that I’m back at the weight my body has been for years. Now it’s really hard losing more because now I know my deficit was too low and have been working on gradually increasing it. I haven’t put it back on but I’m just tryna make sure what I’m doing now is sustainable and I can do forever. Hopefully I’ve changed my habits for the better.

  • The best way to lose fat while doing this diet program is to train hard to gain muscle mass. Muslce burns fat even when you are sleeping. Also buy a product called Amino Alliance, it makes you sleep and recover much faster. I am not sure how much it costs because the hospital I work at gives it to me, but that stuff is amazing. It also goes me mucle pump if taken at the beginning of the work out. Then is it also good to buy some digestive enzymes to help you get rid of bad bacteria.

  • yes watch the butter and meats.. Just saying and eat reasonably.. I think anyone can loose weight eating the right amount of all the foods at the right times. Moderation.. And no hi cholesterol food ummm!!!

  • Cardio is my religion. The REAL problem with weight loss….people set and STOP at their goals, instead of maintaining. They reward themselves with CHEAT meals. They lack the discipline to make fitness a lifestyle. Like I said….cardio IS my life. And I’m good at 6 foot 175 lbs.

  • As a person and human being we always prefer, to have that perfect body that give as confidence and a good look,and have a good health so we can live our lives happily and enjoy the most of it.

    But being overweight is a major obstacle for someone who to sacrifice health and beauty, whether for women or men,every one deserve to be happy and confident about himself.

  • I had no idea I had PCOS for years I had irregular periods, chin hair, and I would get cramps that were so bad I would go to the ER believing my appendix had ruptured. I would go in and they would just calmly tell me that I had cysts that had ruptured. No one told me about PCOS the doctors would just say it’s normal and send me home.
    Finally, a friend of mine who was a nurse told me what PCOS was after years of thinking something was really wrong with me. I couldn’t get pregnant, I was a hormonal mess and so unhappy. I was 352 lbs and I’m 5″2 and couldn’t seem to lose weight no matter what I did, finally after a lot of work I lost 180 lbs.
    Now, I have three kidsno more horrible pain, nearly regular periods, and less hair on my face. Sure I still have some issues dealing with this but honestly, the best thing I did was losing the weight and overall eating better and APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Nasty taste but it did wonders for my PCOS.
    Don’t give up ladies, PCOS sucks and it’s a battle but you can reach your goals.:D

  • Thank you soooooooooooo much Joanna Soh.I awaiting for a long time for this type of video. I struggling to lose weight with PCOS.

  • hey if I take a good amount of healthy carbs and stay within my calorie limit will I lose weight I actually love fruits roti sabzi oats etc and hate protein like chicken breast however I do eat a min of 100 g of protein but carbs (no junk) goes up to 250 g
    ps I workout as well

  • Stay away from trt therapy unless had head injury or ya balls got squashed in a vice. It’s life style that makes it low. You start trt and ya fucked, especially young. Can go fertile and it may become a life time commitment. Once off you’ll go back to being worse or have no natural at all. Stay Natty. The end consequences of body dismorphia etc will screw ya mentally.

  • Dr. Hallberg, you helped me save my life in June 2016 when I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and later, in April 2017 when I was diagnosed with Stage 3, Class C Metastatic HER+ IDC Breast Cancer. By following your 2015 TEDTalk advice, I dropped my A1C from 9.1 to 5.0 inside four (4) months but Keto helped me kill my cancer with minimal standard care. My DMX surgeon sobbed when he read the pathology report stating the 20+ tumors were all “dead, scar tissue”. You, Dr. Thomas Seyfried, and so many others have shown me the best way to live.❤️��

  • Notice the amount of Quack Doctors with backgrounds that include actions from the FTC for promoting fake products etc. If you get rid of processed food you’re going to lose weight. And exercise. You don’t need to put your body on a KETO diet.

  • butter coffee, just like the cavemen used to do it.
    and let’s not forget the natural fats called cheese and bacon *smh.
    when will she share her blood analysis for metabolic markers of disease?

  • I have a very important question. My maintenance calories are 1,736(124lbx14). BUT, according to TDEE calculator, I also need to factor the calories I burned. So for example, if I burned say 300 calories, I need to actually intake 1736+300 kcal. Can anyone guide me please

  • Best diet ever it works people i been on it 7 months and going i lost all the baby weight it works im 157 cm height started the diet at 66 kg(143 pounds) im now 48 kg(105.82 pounds) I didn’t exercises nothing because i haven t had time only the diet…for some it s not much for me it s life changeing����

  • 23:32 “The meal consisted of either a processed meat burger (M-meal), or a plant-based tofu burger (V-meal). Meals were delivered fresh from the manufacturer. Both meals were served with a hot drink: The M-meal with café latte and the V-meal with green tea.”

    hahaha, it has come to the point that even cheating doesn’t help.

  • can somebody please tell me if my shoulders/upper body will get wider (enough to be aparent in a girl)? cause I really dont want this to happen

  • I have been on the Keto diet since March 2017 and down almost 30lbs. But the number one reason to be on the diet, is because I feel great. I suffered from gut issues, anxiety, hormonal womanly time issues, rash out breaks for years. And now all symptoms seem to have seized. The best feeling in the world. Thank you for sharing and letting others know about Keto

  • Started at 239 pounds and I’m at 187 now after 6 months, the Ketogenic lifestyle has changed my life! Anxiety and depression are gone and incredible mental clarity! I also noticed I can run longer and recover much faster.

  • This was the most irresponsible show I’ve ever seen. ABC promoted a HIGH FAT, HIGH CHOLESTEROL diet which promotes obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Amy Robach, you should know better. You, as a breast cancer survivor, should steer clear of dairy and fats (animal products) as they promote cancer.

  • Am 33, 88kg, my BMR according to most online calculators is around 1800 kcal, but according to ur formula 194lb x 15 = 2910 kcal!! Which should i believe?!?! ��

  • There are 3 components to fat reduction exercise, diet, and motivation.

    One place I discovered that successfully combines these is the Triple trim formula (google it if you’re interested) definately the most incredible diet that I have ever seen.

    Check out the before and after pics and incredible testimonials.

  • I’m so glad I found this video! thank you for making a vid about pcos. I get very frustrated about how people keep saying that I overeat or not working out. I have tried, really really do. But it’s just so difficult to lose it. Extremely motivated to keep fighting against pcos.

  • I just wanna throw in that I have PCOS and I was diagnosed when I was 16, and was very over weight, possibly even obese, and even then my life style was pretty healthy, though not perfect. For me, weightloss only came when my doctor put me on birth control to balance my hormones. I just want ladies to know that!! No diet or exercise worked on me until then. I am now down 60 lbs, and havent really changed my lifestyle too much.

  • This is amazing….please can u cover workout routines or demo n vegetarian diet that can be helpful…i hav been suffering same and gain weight very fast����

  • I quit smoking twice over a 5 year period by losing 20 lbs first, then quit smoking. I gained back 25 lbs., went back to smoking and eventually ended up back at the same weight, and smoking the same amount as before (please see the definition of insanity). I quit smoking in December (2 packs a day), then started dieting, hit the weights hard, and took T-Boosters. I was able to drop 12 lbs., get stronger and am not smoke. Did the T-Boosters help? I think that they helped me to lose fat? Not sure?

  • Hi, just to add to the diagnosis part. Becuase it is a syndrome, not a disease there is not one criteria, normally doctors look for a few things before deciding which will include a blood test, ultrasound and physical symptoms like hair growth. The worst system for me is the hair growth on my body and hair loss on my head due to excess testosterone.

  • I’m 18 and I just got to know that I hav pcos. Mine is genetic that’s like my mum got it wen she was 18 and now me. Also I hav high insulin so right now I’m trying to control wat I eat like no cheese Coz cheese is soo much fat and if u want to eat cottage cheese(paneer) or tofu or anything it’s best adviced to make it at home with 1% fat milk and trust me guys it comes out beautifully. Also I switched from cow milk to almond milk and coconut milk Coz that has no fat or calories. Workout I recommend skipping(start slow and increase ur level). Mine is just the starting stage so I hav a fair chance of controlling it but guys don’t worry if u gain weight all of a sudden Coz it happened to me, I gained 10kgs in a month (so chill). I’m also under medication for 3 months. Not telling u to cut down all ur favourites but just limit the intake of them.my Mom is fine with pregnancy Coz she got me wen she was 18 and that is wen she found out about pco but she still had my brother afterwards and yes to be honest she was in a very critical stage(like the doc told my dad to choose between my mum or brother Coz they can get only one alive) but finally both my mum and brother r perfectly alright till date. ��don’t worry it’s just life

  • Hello Sorry Brother Do you have a Calisthenics or Bodyweight Exercise for the Side Delt or Side Shoulders, Posterior Delt or Back Shoulders & Upper,Middle and Lower Trapezius, Thoracic and Lower Back, Forearm, Wrist and Rotator cuff and Upper Abs, Obliques or Side Abs & Lower Abs Type, Variations Workout and How to Neck Exercise?��

  • PCOS is the name doctors give ‘metabolic syndrome’ in women.  Essentially what they’re yelling you in that your Endocrine system is messed up.  Diet, exercise, meditation and rest are needed to restore your body.

  • Brooooo, weight is just a number. If you’re healthy, but weigh “a lot” who cares? Muscle weighs more than fat so when I’m lifting, I’ll gain weight, but I’m shredding fat. Focus more on body fat than weight because that’ll fluctuate

  • This was so informative, thank you.
    I have been dealing with a different situation, suffer from IBS, migraines and fibromyalgia, which had for almost a year been wrongly diagnosed.
    My biggest motivation on getting fit is to get off medication as I have been informed that exercise is a good therapy for fibromyalgia.
    have been on medication (still am) for the past year and a half which has cause me to put on more than 10kgs due to the side effects of the drugs. Although I have now been put most of those that caused the weight increase. I now need to lose this weight and more.
    I have been working out on my own and have managed to lose 2kgs in 2 months but I would want to achieve more. Hopefully with your help I can get there.
    My challenge however is on exercing when I’m really unwell (and I have been having a lot of those days lately). My body (my stomach) especially can barely stand an movement or strain. Kindly help me out.

  • Linora, there are so many women who get pregnant and have PCOS. My friend was told to lose a few kg and then the doc gave her some metformin and she fell pregnant a few months later. There is hope. I also have PCOS and so did some of my aunts in my family. I only plan to have children in the future but it was a huge concern for me so I did a lot of research on it and spoke to people who did manage to get pregnant with PCOS like my aunts and friend. It is possible so don’t lose heart! You already look fabulous and are healthy so it should go much smoother than most people who only start losing the weight when trying for a child.

  • Thank you guys for this amazing video. It is absolutely inspired as i am still find my own way to come over those issues. Though i work out regularly; however, i always carve for carbs and sugar such as tradditional food made of glutious rice, bread or biscuit,…, i overeat everyday and i gained weight dramatically. That’s the reason why sometimes i consider myself as monster and feel so disappointed as i am not normal.

  • Very informative! Thank you for sharing this Jo! It’s really nice to know that I’m not alone on this fight for PCOS. I’m only starting to be better and I’m glad I was on the right track. Got the same issues and learning how to deal with it in slow pace. Thank you! Thank you!

  • I really wish I had find this diet guide years ago. For 3 weeks of adopting the weights, I dropped 12 pounds Of course I exercise a few times weekly, and eat healthy. It showed awesome outcomes for me. I certainly endorse the item, wish it works as great for you because it really does for me. Find a right weight is not easy, you can discover on Google. Guide’s name is at the bottom.

    good luck

  • Thank you for this. I have been struggling with PCOS for a while now.
    Some helpful information you might be interested in:
    1. The reason why some PCOS patients are thin while some gain weight is because of the type of insulin resistance they have. There is the pre type and the post type. It’s harder to treat the post type (thin patients). So we should be having a balanced diet with less carbs, sugar and fat in our diet.
    2. It is also related to an increase in androgens which means that we are predisposed to hypercholesterolemia. It also causes our acne (increased sebum thus causing clogging), and increased hair or hirusitism everywhere.
    3. PCOS worsens with stress because increase in ACTH is directly related to increase in GnRH. So try to relax.
    4. All in all, eating healthy, exercising and decreasing stress are the most important nonpharmacologic ways to lessen signs and symptoms.
    5. To balance your hormones, you can go see your doctor. They will usually prescribe an Oral Contraceptive Pill to you.
    6. Currently, I also take Vit D (most PCOS patients also suffer from Vit D deficiency), antioxidants, fish oil and metformin (a drug for my insulin resistance).

    I hope this helps. Please see your OB-GYN, it will help loads.

  • Unless you are eating same meal e.g. set amount of rice, same boiled vegetables, same amount of eggs/chicken/meat etc. it’s incredibly difficult to track the calories. Monitoring them to the level of 60-80 calories is almost impossible. One tsp of oil will make that difference. Also, it’s very hard to just guess the calories by the portion size.:-( Scientists can do this in a controlled manner as an experiment but it’s almost unrealistic to do in real world. I am keeping track of my calories in myfitnesspal for a week and it is already a pain in the ass..

  • This was such a great video! You do such a great job Johanna! I can identify with PCOS since I found out as an adult that I had it. Finally a doctor told me what it was about, after my first child. Until then I understood one of the reasons I struggled for 5 years to get pregnant. Before I was basically just told I had cysts and that was why it was harder for me to get pregnant, but till after my first baby that wonderful doctor explained the insulin resistance part and why I needed to start a healthy lifestyle. Now I am blessed with 3 children and am more interested than ever to take better care of myself for myself but my loved ones too. It turned out to be a Blessing in disguise. ��������������

  • Just started watching your channel and am really grateful for your videos… Just hit subscribe! I’ve lost a little over 100 lbs in the last year (>350 to <250). I've mostly been walking and cycling for exercise and was looking for some new workouts to help me get to my final goal. I need to lose another 10 to 15 pounds, but mostly I'm looking to develop a healthy lifestyle that I can live with and enjoy for the rest of my life. As I'm in my 50s, I really appreciate how great a workout I can get rowing with minimal impact. It really seems to be a perfect balance. Thanks for all of the helpful information and for the added inspiration. I need all the help I can get and plan to keep coming back. Thanks again!

  • Thank you so much for this, I was diagnosed at 12 with PCOS and Endometriosis. Weight has been such a huge issue since I was very young. I’ve lost 70lbs in the past year, but have reached a plateau and feel like I’m gaining. This has been very helpful. I have been doing cardio but no weight training. I also struggle with ednos and have been binging on carbs.

  • can you interview someone who is vegan and fights PCOS, bc many stories on the Internet day high animal protein and low carb, no grains, but in the long term that can cause heart problems, cancer etc. If you eat too much meat protein.

  • Thank u for talking about this it wld be great if more people talk about it thumsup to let her know that we want more of these videos please ������������

  • I can’t say enough about Keto

    Not only losing weight, but I feel better than I have in years and rarely get tired in the day like I used to. Also my hunger and cravings have almost disappeared

  • Women need to start speaking up about PCOS, it is so common yet many don’t know what exactly it is!! So grateful that you made this video

  • Thank you Joanna. I have e-mailed you so many times asking all about PCOS and I am glad that you have managed to send me a reply through this video.

  • I actually had irregular periods from the time I started my period at 12. I went from every 4 months to getting on birth control and having irregular bleeding throughout the month until I was 19. Then I was diagnosed with precancerous cells in my cervix. I went vegetarian and it went away. As I got older I was having heavy 16 day periods sometimes lasting a month. I’ve been vegan for 3 years now and nothing has changed. Last year I bled for 2 months to the point of needing a blood transfusion. I’m turning 26 next month and I’m back to it barely coming on and some months being normal. It’s the most annoying and scary thing I’ve ever had to deal with. Im slowly learning how to manage it better. I really appreciate this video because I know I’m not alone and there’s some things mentioned that I haven’t heard or found in my research that can help me. Thank you so much ��

  • Thankuuuuu Jaonna I am charu and i am 16 years old I am too suffering from PCOS OR PCOD Thanku for such inspirational video.Luv u both

  • Take up to 6 gels a day it can be a bleeder if your prone or anemic or drink alcohol or take aspirin lighten up on the nsaids while taking fish oil Its a medical wonder if you take enough fish oil for long enough it actually will increase longevity look at people who live near fish eating community cold ocean water fish like Norwegian cod liver oil is the best

  • Joanna n Linora, thank you for discussing this topic n giving me hope. I have had pcos since the age of 12 n have been on countless years of diane35 medication. Obesity, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance all followed. Am 37 n last year it got so bad on my birthday that i decide to do something about it. I have been weight training with cardio since then. This year it is for the 1st time in my life i had regular, normal periods all months. Am a work in progress for sure. These videos are informative n hopeful..thank u!

  • Maybe I am the only person that is confuse how this works by eating lots butter and eggs and sausage and still loose weight? I mean com on I ate that all my life and how you think I got to 300 Ib.

  • Could you please give me review of kirkland signature krill oil..its a us based brand? Would be of great help if you take your time to do the needful

  • My testosterone levels normalized when my vitamin D levels normalized. I tried for several years to take Vitamin D3 which is supposed to be the more active version but was unable to raise my D levels more than a few points. I started taking D2 at 400 IU daily (with food) and my D levels are back to normal and my testosterone is in the 400 range.

  • Hi Jo… Nice video… Tq from upload… I subscribed to your YouTube channel, please subscribe to my YouTube channel… hi guys pls subscribe to my YouTube channel and support me… Thanks in advance ��

  • Funny how I learn and retain more knowledge from a 5 minute video on this channel than I do from a 15 minute video on other channels

  • Hello Brad,
    What brand of fish oil are you currently consuming? or which brands do you know are best to use. I want to avoid the low quality brands as you said in your video that can be rancid. I don’t have enough experience to gauge what good and bad would be like as a taste test.

    Thank you for your time.

  • Thank you Dr. Hallberg for curating all these studies, highlighting the efficacy of a low carb diet in reversing metabolic dysfunction. Its nice to have a single resource that I can point to when confronted by skeptical people, vegan detractors of low carb, and those who are unfamiliar with the health benefits of low carb. You are truly providing a valuable service. Moreover, by presenting us with this nice compendium of low carb research and how the broader medical community is becoming more receptive to it, you are giving us hope that we are moving in the right direction. We truly appreciate your tireless work as an emissary for this way of eating.

  • Just found your channel and this video. I always followed quite a good balanced diet growing up (alot of Asian and Mediterranean influences) I have various health issues, and recently got diagnosed with PCOS. Years ago I had periods that lasted weeks on end. I was put onto a birth control pill for years which helped alot, but gave me bad side effects. I came off the BC pill this year and they are back to normal now.

  • guys in phase 3 i understand that you should go back to maintanence but why are we supposed to experiment and add a couple 100 calories?

    EDIT: also if i simply follow his steps on phase 2 would i be able to maintain muscle? Aren’t i supposed to do resistance training as well?

  • The body will burn dietary fats (the fat you eat) before starting to burn any body fat, so if you don’t restrict calories you will not lose any weight, keto or not.

  • Protein baby… high protein and high intensity weight training. And indeed, these are the things you have to maintain as a lifestyle.

  • You might also consider natural, nonpharmacologic remedies, such as:

    Losing weight. Obese men who lost an average of 17 pounds saw their testosterone rise by 15 percent, according to findings presented at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting last year.
    Exercising routinely
    Quitting smoking
    Consuming less alcohol, which lowers testosterone levels
    Eating cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, bok choy and cabbage

    Each of these remedies has been shown to both increase testosterone levels and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.

  • yya im goanna lose weihgt gonna watch and use ur 4 week body but my food ahah trying to be healthy sauteed lettuce is good rihgt ahah? lol idk baout food haah

  • so, it’s Wed and a Day3 for me. Intervals. What about the rest between 250m sessions? I did 1min and after like 7th interval I saw that my heart was going too high (in my desired zone). So what’s best to have a slower next interval (since the machine starts counting time anyway and I can’t rest for more) OR to set rest time from 1min to 1.5mins for all the intervals.?

  • This is just what I’ve been looking for, I lost a shit ton of weight but faster than I should’ve and I’ve obviously lost muscle. I’m basically a thin looking obese person at the moment, if that makes any sense. I’ll try this, wish me luck.

  • ……any thoughts on natural Aromatase inhibitors like beta Sitosterol, DIM, Sulforaphane to help block some of the increase estrogen production in aging males?

  • Thank you authority nutrition for all the hard work you are doing..u guys are confirming facts from myth and itz a real eye opener����do u think u guys can do one on drinking room temperature water than cold water��?????✌️yay

  • I love authority nutrition last year around this time exactly, I was headed to destruction. I felt like shit everyday and my body ache all over. Plus I was sick every other week or so. On top of that I weighed 250 pounds and I didn’t understand why. I exercise almost everyday and was I eating “right”at least I thoughts.”I prayed and prayed for an answer and nothing was working. I wanted to go to a doctor but I didn’t have enough money for doctor visit. Then one miraculous day I was checking email and authority nutrition put out another study on gluten intolerance. I heard of this gluten before but I didn’t think it applied to me. But as I read the blog all the symptoms they listed was affecting me. So I took the chance because truthfully it was my last chance. A year later I’m 50 pounds lighter, and I’m continuing to lose weight. I thank you everyday and pray for you guys as much as I can. God bless y’all and may your angel protect and guide you. ❤️����������

  • I am super motivated because I am also a girl who is fighting against PCOS. Thank you Jo for this video because I have got lot of tips. Love you:)

  • I cut down my calories to 1500 per day and am rowing at steady pace daily for 1hr 10min..wth 25min two sets and one 20min set..
    Am I doing it correct?
    I wanna lose close to 40kg…

  • i’m looking to get a cheaper model rower than the Concept 2 just to get started with and just wondering as there isnt a distance setting on the machine so do you have any tips for how to set targets to help build performance??

  • I joined the rowing team at work and I’m stoked to see what it will do for my body! I also love weight training so hopefully that’ll help with getting into it.

  • Read a long time ago, a French pro rider, he said he hated indoor cycling trainers because there was no airflow to keep him cool.. (endurance ). I have a well made floor type fan in front of me when I row… rarely overheat. Some personal info, just had hip replaced recently and am hitting 30 minutes after 2.5 months at 80 % old pace. Roughly 6500 M. Long time rower here. Nice work you are doing.

  • Awesome, thanks for doing this video. Between rowing, walking and using my total gym I think I should do well.

    I really enjoy watching your videos.

  • Fantastic video. Do your premier athlete programs online have routines that include the skierg as well? I thought I was good just doing 30mins on the rower and a 2k on the skier but apparently I was off

  • Thankuuuuu Jaonna I am charu and i am 16 years old I am too suffering from PCOS OR PCOD Thanku for such inspirational video.Luv u both

  • Shane thank you so much. Im turning 62 next week and planning to retire in April. Im getting myself in shape (for our time )made up my mind after seeing 250 on the scale recently for the first time in my life.so glad i found your channel!One thing you opened me up to is intervals.I made a Fav interval for the first days of 1-1r/2-1r/3-1r/2-1r/1-1r. that was over 3k and kept me going.also now i do it 2 or 3 times a day.Also the default interval is a good one giving you 5 k if you row slower during rest.downloaded erg data thanks to you too….. love the videos

  • Always body is one number u are best go get information and honest I really appreciate it. Because no one does this that give good information thanks for all I do brad. I didn’t know this about fish oil how healthy it

  • Absolutely but it also needs to have a change in eating habits too. Limiting calories doesn’t work alone and usually brings the weight back (look at the biggest losers). I don’t eat sugars (in any form) and keep my carbs between 20g and 50gs per day.

  • So…this is what I got watching your video:

    Day 1 Row 3000 meters, no stopping
    Day 2stretch or yoga and 30 min walk (no rowing)
    Day 3 -10 by 250 meters? intervals on row
    Day 4 rest
    Day 5Bodyweight strength workouts
    Day 6 row 6000 or more, steady heartrate (3 by 2000 meters)
    Day 7???

    You mentioned in the video about a 7 day plan, but you only got to day 6. What is day 7? Another rest day? Lol
    Or did I miss that?

    At mark 7:46 in the video, for intervals, you mention
    3 by 2000 meters….again, I’m new and ignorant to this. What does that mean?

    And finally…what stroke rate should we be aiming for when doing the 3000 meter, intervals and 6000?

  • I took a look on your last study presented, by jeff volek. On the high carb diet he has 25.6 grams of fiber, and everybody knows if you want a good high carb diet it needs to be whole foods with lots of fiber. It has 151 grams of sugar out of 345 grams of total carbs, sugar coming from cinnamon life cereal -15 g, orange juice 21 grams ( no fiber of course ), grape juice, mashmallow fluff 16g, bbq sauce 12 grams, fig newton’s ( 12 grams ). So this is clearly a SAD diet.
    Low carb diet is not even spelled right, so i’m not sure about the quality of this study. You have in grey High carb diet, moderate carb diet and moderate carb diet. It looks decent enough but you have things like Mayonnaise and an overall of 10grams of fiber, pretty low in my opinion.
    So it’s either incompetence or they just want to prove low carb diets are healthier by any means.
    How about a study done well? I just want to see the truth, don’t care about the macronutrients, but this study is shady at least.

  • Great videos! Living proof too. 102kg -> 78 kg. But I stopped in the spring because all my spare time has been dedicated to projects around the home and “yard”. Finally today I’ve got to the stage where I can not only see my C2 but also set it up in my home gym. I was a bit shook when I looked at my ErgData log and when the last recorded session was! Still back to it. Start gentle and work up I guess. Any other tips??

  • I know a sure fire way to lose weight and it’s 100 % proven.
    Take a gram of speed and stay awake for a week.
    100%..You will loose weight!
    Also you will fall into a drug induced paranoid psychosis which will probably require years of counseling.

  • Great Video! Got turned on to your channel recently (by people telling my my rowing sucks! Haha! Well, I knew that.) It’s good to hear such a clearly knowledgeable person with such great perspective!

  • Go take our Live Lean Body Quiz: http://bit.ly/2OSnvsG
    QOTD: Do you take fish oil daily? If so, how much fish oil do you take a day?

  • I found this: US.Secured.Kim 100% natural and scientific weight loss pill which is the best and it’s marked no 1 in USA. Their working principal and ingredients are great you can trust.

    good luck

  • Love, love this interview:)
    I discovered Linora a few months back on Instagram and seeing you together is amazing! Please do more in-depth interview like this (example: obesity, diabetes etc. in Malaysia) Lots of love from France <3

  • Guys one minute……
    Pls look for this ��������
    I request you to everyone pls don’t ignore

    !!Thank you for taking out some time to read this ��!!

    Hello everyone, this is AZHAR HUSSAIN from Hyderabad. And I’m a first-year degree student. My family includes my mother and a younger sister( 6th class )
    I have a small request to make to everyone whoever is reading this.
    I know many of you might not know me personally.

    I just wanted a small help that is related to some sort of financial assistance and this is because on 11th of MAY-2020 my Grandfather died due to heart attack at care hospital.

    After demise of my grandfather, our financial situation has taken a fall. My Grandfather was the only working person of my family
    My mother is a house wife and I’m still pursuing my bachelor degree and I never met my father.

    And he was the only source of income for our house. After struggling for years and years he bought us a small flat at Suncity, Hyderabad last year.
    After his death, all EMI-cheque’s started bouncing months after months and the number of calls from banks also increased.

    We tried to use our insurance policy claim but that also went in vain as they do not cover natural deaths.
    After struggling for more than three months or more in this lockdown I’ve tried all the possible ways to handle the banks, family and all other stuff. Also tried to reach Sonu Sood for help but couldn’t manage to get any reply.

    I just request everyone to please help me with some amount. little to little donation will help me.
    I know the amount is very big and I’m trying all possible ways to save my house which will give shelter to my family.

    I know many of you will ignore the post thinking that this is one of the tricks to mislead the people and fetch money but it’s not like that.
    Before my Grandfather’s death I was the one who donated for PM-cares funds using my fathers Money and now time has taken a reverse toll one me.
    I again plead and request you to help me out in saving my house.
    I’ll be very thankful to you for indeed gesture.

    My account details are:

  • .All fish oils are toxic and Rancid!.a billion dollar industry! a scam!
    “polyunsaturated Toxic fats”
    In the 1940s, the agricultural chemists found that they could fatten their animals faster if they poisoned their metabolic systems with an anti-thyroid drug. The found the animals would get fat on very little food. Yet, the drug turned out to leave a carcinogenic residue in the meat.
    Farmers soon found out that corn and soybeans containing polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) would do the same as the anti-thyroid drugs and suppress the respiration of the animals and make them get fat on very little food. In the process they found that they were getting these yellow-fat diseases and brain degenerations (degeneration of the gonads, infertility, and so on).

    Around the same time the medical people noticed that the cholesterol was lowered in the process of eating a lot of these polyunsaturated fats. And that led to the spreading of the marketing of unsaturated fats to the human food supply, rather than just for the fattening of farm animals. And since people didn’t want to gain weight on the least amount of food, they needed a new reason for selling their fats to humans. And, lowering cholesterol became the excuse in humans.

    But the agriculturists knew all through the 1940s that corn and soy oils were very fattening, and eventually, very toxic. But since they sold their animals as soon as they reached a marketable size, they didn’t care (if they died later; they were killing them before they had the chance to die of the degenerative diseases).” -RP

    Bottom line: Although,the polyunsaturated fats will lower cholesterol (by suppressing the immune system), one of their main functions is to fatten animals, including you if you consume them, on lower calories. This is why farmers use high polyunsaturated fats foods like corn and soy to fatten their animals.
    What foods are high in polyunsaturated oils? Vegetables, seed and nut oils. Nuts, seeds, soy, corn, fatty fish like salmon, omega 3 and 6 oils, fish oil, and animals that are fed a high polyunsaturated diet. How do they cause hormonal imbalances?

    There are many changes in hormones caused by unsaturated fats. Their best understood effect is their interference with the function of the thyroid gland. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone. When the thyroid hormone is deficient, the body is generally exposed to increased levels of estrogen. The thyroid hormone is essential for making the “protective hormones” progesterone and pregnenolone, so these hormones are lowered when anything interferes with the function of the thyroid. The thyroid hormone is required for using and eliminating cholesterol, so cholesterol is likely to be raised by anything which blocks the thyroid function. [B. Barnes and L. Galton, Hypothyroidism, 1976, and 1994 references.]
    Q: How do they damage the immune system?

    Vegetable oil is recognized as a drug for knocking out the immune system. Vegetable oil emulsions were used to nourish cancer patients, but it was discovered that the unsaturated oils were suppressing their immune systems. The same products, in which vegetable oil is emulsified with water for intravenous injection, are now marketed specifically for the purpose of suppressing immunity in patients who have had organ transplants. Using the oils in foods has the same harmful effect on the immune system. [E. A. Mascioli, et al.,Lipids 22(6) 421, 1987.] Unsaturated fats directly kill white blood cells. [C. J. Meade and J. Martin, Adv. Lipid Res., 127, 1978.]

    Q: How do they cause oxidative damage?

    Unsaturated oils get rancid when exposed to air; that is called oxidation, and it is the same process that occurs when oil paint “dries.” Free radicals are produced in the process.

    This process is accelerated at higher temperatures. The free radicals produced in this process react with parts of cells, such as molecules of DNA and protein and may become attached to those molecules, causing abnormalities of structure and function.

    Q: What if I eat only organically grown vegetable oils?

    Even without the addition of agricultural chemicals, an excess of unsaturated vegetable oils damages the human body. Cancer can’t occur, unless there are unsaturated oils in the diet. [C. Ip, et al., Cancer Res. 45, 1985.] Alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver cannot occur unless there are unsaturated oils in the diet. [Nanji and French, Life Sciences. 44, 1989.] Heart disease can be produced by unsaturated oils, and prevented by adding saturated oils to the diet. [J. K. G. Kramer, et al., Lipids 17, 372, 1983.]

    Q. What oils are safe?
    Coconut and olive oil are the only vegetable oils that are really safe, but butter and lamb fat, which are highly saturated, are generally very safe (except when the animals have been poisoned). Coconut oil is unique in its ability to prevent weight-gain or cure obesity, by stimulating metabolism. It is quickly metabolized, and functions in some ways as an antioxidant. Olive oil, though it is somewhat fattening, is less fattening than corn or soy oil, and contains an

    antioxidant which makes it protective against heart disease and cancer.

    Israel had the world’s highest incidence of breast cancer when they allowed the insecticide lindane to be used in dairies, and the cancer rate decreased immediately after the government prohibited its use. The United States has fairly good laws to control the use of cancer-causing agents in the food supply, but they are not vigorously enforced. Certain cancers are several times more common among corn farmers than among other farmers, presumably because corn “requires” the use of more pesticides. This probably makes corn oil’s toxicity greater than it would be otherwise, but even the pure, organically grown material is toxic, because of its intrinsic unsaturation.
    In the United States, lard is toxic because the pigs are fed large quantities of corn and soy beans. Besides the intrinsic toxicity of the seed oils, they are contaminated with agricultural chemicals. Corn farmers have a very high incidence of cancer, presumably because of the pesticides they use on their crop.

    Q: But aren’t “tropical oils” bad for us?

    In general, tropical oils are much more healthful than oils produced in a cold climate. This is because tropical plants live at a temperature that is close to our natural body temperature. Tropical oils are stable at high temperatures. When we eat tropical oils, they don’t get rancid in our tissues as the cold-climate seed oils, such as corn oil, safflower oil and soy oil, do. [R.B. Wolf, J. Am. Oil Chem. Soc. 59, 230, 1982; R. Wolfe, Chem 121, Univ. of Oregon, 1986.]..Go to Raypeats website to read this post ;



  • I am 75 kg I just want to lose 10 kg.weight.so how many times I must take tablets.and if I stop taking this..will I gain my weight back

  • I started my journey 2 months ago and lost already 22 lbs I am so happy even tho I still have 40lbs to lose lol but for everyone seeing this keep going! it takes a long time to acheive your goal but quitting doesn’t make it faster!!

  • Thanks so much for the video. So informative. I’ve actually been looking for a good fish oil. I’m also wondering about krill oil. Is that a good option also? If so would I need to take the same dose of epa/dha as the fish oil or less? Thanks!

  • Lose fat will boost tesrestorone and healthy food plus lifting weights. Get ya bloods done while fat, then done while losing it. Can go up 10 fold

  • Thank you so much!!!! Im just at the point where I’m 160 and I was 215 60 days ago, I rapidly lost weight by doing light workouts, long runs and a massive calorie deficit( I was eating 900-1200 calories a day) and just last week I’ve been super hungry all the time and noticed I had lost a lot of muscle and I didn’t like that so I started lifting heavy now, your video probably saved me just in time from gaining all my weight back

  • There is so much to figure out. I need to lose sixty pounds but some times I think why try I’m 49 so my life is almost over. I feel like giving up. It took me five months to lose 34 pounds! But that stupid scale stopped moving.

  • You didn’t mention krill oil. I always thought krill (because its lower level of mercury) was better than some of those fish you mentioned. Your thoughts, Brad? thanks
