A RD Weighs in on a Keto-Vegan Diet. by Sidney Fry, MS, RD. January 8, 2020. No Comments.

Share it: With so many restrictions on each diet, advising on how to combine a keto and vegan diet can get tricky. First let’s make sure we have a full understanding of the two. THE KETO DIET.

Vegan or a plant-based keto operates on the same principles of carbohydrate depletion. Most people have to limit their net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) to about 40 grams or less to remain in ketosis, which can be difficult when also limiting yourself to only plant-based foods. The ketogenic diet is low in carbs, high in fat and moderate in protein. Carbs are typically reduced to less than 50 grams per day to reach and maintain ketosis — a metabolic process in which.

Put together, the Keto vegan diet is this: It’s a low-carb, high-fat, and moderate protein diet that excludes animal-based products. This means those on a vegan Keto diet are to only take in plant-based fat and limit carb intake to less than 50g per day. On a vegetarian diet, it’s easier to eat enough healthy fats because your diet can still include eggs and dairy. Good Plant-Based Fat Sources for Vegans and Animal-Based Sources for Vegetarians If you’re looking for vegan or vegetarian sources for good fats, start with the following keto-friendly food products.

The ketogenic diet is just the opposite. It requires at least 70% of daily calories come from fat, only 5% to 10% from carbohydrates and about 25 percent from protein. BENEFITS OF A VEGAN KETO DIET.

By modifying the diet to be plant-based, you can take away many of the health concerns associated with the ketogenic diet. The vegan keto diet would consist of the same principles of increasing fat consumption and limiting carbs, but. But now it’s being used as a dieting tool 70-80% of calories from fat 15-30% calories from protein 5% calories from carbohydrates.

A 2012 study found that gymnasts on a strict ketogenic diet for only 30 days lost weight without losing strength. The researchers concluded that keto eating may actually prove advantageous to athletes in weight-class sports since it could allow them to keep their strength up when competing at lighter body weights. The ketogenic (keto) diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet.

It emphasizes rich sources of fat, like dairy products and avocado, with moderate protein servings and very few carbs.

List of related literature:

For both vegans and vegetarians, remember that your carb macros will be slightly different from the omnivore plan—40 net carbs a day—but protein and fat are the same: 50 to 70 grams protein and 150 grams fat.

  • Hey guys I took notes:
    (Please watch the video though, because it is very helpful & goes more in detail)
    To get into Ketosis FAST—
    1. Cut out the sugar (no fruit, processed sugars etc.)
    2. To limit the carbs, you really have to count your carb intake; try downloading the “Keto” app as suggested so you know what’s in your food. If you’re like me and carbs are your life, just stay away from them.
    3. Intermittent Fasting
    4. Work out during your fasting hours; helps the process even more. Work out before you break your fast. Work out after you last meal. Workouts don’t have to be extreme — don’t think you have to be a gym warrior! Just work out! Get on a treadmill, take a walk etc.
    5. If you get sugar cravings, try a shot of apple cider vinegar.
    6. COFFEEE HELPS! Especially when you are trying to get your sugars/carbs down.
    7. Himalayan salt is BEST
    8. There are electrolytes she mentioned that you can buy to keep you from getting the “Keto flu” (sodium, magnesium, and potassium) surely you can eat your electrolytes, but doing the supplement and eating them is better.
    9. She mention a great protein powder by VEGA
    10. MOTIVATE YOURSELF, you GOT this! You may feel a little weird at first, but your body is going to do this amazing switch and start burning fat. As a result you’ll have improved mental health, physical health and the weight loss you desire! Stay strong guys!

  • He left out the truth of the matter regarding putting on weight. High glycemic foods which spike blood sugar and cause the fat storage hormone insulin to store this excess energy as fat, is what makes you put on weight. Eating fats, do not effect blood sugar, eating protein has little effect on blood sugar, but high starch carbohydrates or high sugar carbs DO raise blood sugar and cause excess insulin. Surprised, this guy does not know this basic truth.

  • Hey, I live in the mediterranean and before I switched to veganism my diet was ridiculously high in fat.
    Now that I have incorporated more fats(as non proccesed as possible) on my plate I noticed a quite big boost in overall energy levels.
    Great work PBN!

  • Very well said. Thank you for pointing out how absurd this vegan vs keto battle is. Both can be healthy and unhealthy, depending on whether one eats whole foods with plenty of vegetables and fiber with their diet. The leaders in these movements fight against the other side as if they are mutually exclusive. They are not. I have eaten low carb vegan and even done vegan keto for brief periods. My lipid panel is one of the best my cardiologist has seen, eating whole food, high fat low carb, with large consumption of avocados, seeds, nuts, olives and olive oil.

  • I’ve found out that adding food such as fruit like apples & oranges to my diet promotes weight loss because they are low on the glycemic index meaning that glucose is released into the cells of the body more slowly.

    What I mean is it’s better than eating say a lot of candy,sweet soft drink, doughnuts, etc which is high on the glycemic index meaning that you only feel full & energetic in the short term.

    Then in the long term,you hit that low then get a sugar craving,your body needs to work out what to do with the sudden hit of glucose, the liver needs to convert it into glycogen meaning it gets stored on the body as fat.

    Eating fruit which is low on the glycemic index & contains pectin has promoted a feeling of fullness for longer & has regulated the release of glucose into the body,that is also due to the fibre content in a lot of the fruit,bread & cereal that I eat.

    So,I haven’t focussed on cutting out just carbohydrates in the body,rather to eat more complex carbohydrates.

    I have lost 22 kilograms in the last month & I feel much more energetic.

  • It’s the high carbs high fat combination that does damage.
    Although keto is much healthier than vegan, vegan can be sustainable. For about less than a decade, then you go apeshit and talk about giving rights to cows.
    Vegan doesn’t cure diabetes type-2, and cure all sorts of inflammation, or is a treatment for cancer.
    But wait, what other diet would that be? Hmm… I’m thinking about it…. wondering… hmmm who knows?:d

  • I did a non-meat version of keto a few years ago (lots of butter, eggs, cheese) definitely was in ketosis, for 3 weeks and my blood pressure skyrocketed!!! So that scared me off of keto. Then I did several variations of high-carb vegan and failed to lose more than a few lbs, and my triglycerides skyrocketed. Finally, I discovered vegan keto! Where’ve you been all my life??? In 1 week, BP dropped 40 points and I lost 5 lbs. I’m encouraged! Thanks for addressing this. But I have a question: The vegan keto calculators say to do way more protein…how do I know whom to believe? Can you elaborate on that please? They also say to count calories, at least at first. I don’t see how I can increase my fat that much without going over the max # of calories, as specified by the calculators. Or do you think they are wrong? Please elaborate. thanks!

  • I considered vegan ketosis when talking about getting rid of brain fog but I will put it in my back pocket it is not a lifestyle for me.

  • This video claims that keto and vegan are opposite things that fight against each other. Well, i guess that guy confused keto with carnivore diet. You can very well be vegan and go keto at the same time. Keto and vegan are not opposite things, or enemy ideas of each other. If there are two clashing diets, they are LowCarb(including Keto) vs HighCarb(doesn’t necesserily vegan).

  • Please could you program on Piers Morgan and his lack of education on the subject of veganism? Every time I see him arguing with vegans it drives me mad with his refusal to understand veganism. He thinks he is so superior and obviously thinks vegans are quite stupid. He really deserves to be ridiculed for his behaviour.

  • I considered vegan ketosis when talking about getting rid of brain fog but I will put it in my back pocket it is not a lifestyle for me.

  • I can tell you from Esselstyn MD work Vegan keto is not better than low fat whole food plant based. For many people if they were to eat this way even plant based would end up with stents, bypass or even worse. Get your blood work checked frequently and then you will know what way of eating is tolerable and healthful. My blood for instance shows higher fat, higher risk for heart disease. Even things like dark chocolate and peanut butter are problematic.

  • IMO we all move forward toward health and understanding by not taking social media fireworks so seriously and instead trying to see past the smoke to distill the fundamental principles of a topic. In the case of diet, most of the hype has to do with specific trends, especially when they’re ‘new’, whereas the fundamental principles of healthy nutrition transcend individual trends

  • Notes; 80% fat 15% Protein 5% Carp, Avocados, raw coconut oil & milk, Pine nuts, Almonds, Flax seeds, Chia seeds, Algal Oil,. Protein are Tempeh and soy products without Gmo.

  • Good to see this video, you look great vegan keto makes me feel
    Great. When I’m low fat vegan I’m always so damn hungry. And my skin goes crazy from
    All the gluten and grains. Keto vegan I’m
    Never hungry, eat way less because off all the avacado and nuts and seed sauces,and drop weight sooo fast…. also isn’t hummus made out of chickpeas? I thought beans/ legumes aren’t allowed on keto

  • Do you know of any studies looking into part-time vegan (or flexitarian) benefits? I am thinking to eat a vegan diet on weekdays and vegetarian diet on the weekends, and occasional meat, fish and chicken. This is just better for my lifestyle.

  • I think people need to look at diet as adaptable. If you are not obese it diabetic then a keto diet should be a temporary something you do once in a while. This diet was prescribed by a doctor to help his clients who could not lose weight because of problems with their diabetes!!!!!

    The were diabetic and in the brink of death and losing limbs. Seriously bothers me that this became a fad diet…

  • A lot of people nowadays are working to find out the best way to drop weight. Then again, being able to discover a diet plan that will work for you is hard to discover. A crucial thing you want to understand is that a diet is effective for one person might not operate for another. So you must know what your getting into before you start one of these diets. This may give you enough info to find out if this really is something which is suitable to your needs. Read more here https://truehealthreport.com/xtreme-fat-loss-diet-review/

  • High protein is not keto!!! Geez, people, do your own research! Keto means moderate protein, low carb (sugar! Fibre doesn’t count), and high fat (olive oil, coconut oil, MCT oil, avocado oil, nuts, some seeds). Protein source is completely up to you.

  • ….. so why the hell would someone switch to a plant based diet when there are only 2 examples of vegan diets and having the longest life….. especially when the okinowa one isn’t truthful as there are many there that ate minimal meat before. And the one that the is the 7th day whatever they are…. that’s to small off a group. Show me 3rd generation vegans and look at their health… and I talking true 3rd generations. Not a single one as far as I am aware of. Just because this doctor hasn’t searched and done the research on the animal based products….. and why would he, is a plant based doctor. Everyone has bias

  • I have been on a very strict vegan keto diet for two months.It has ended a lifelong feeling of hunger that has been stressful. I’m also hopeful it will give my pancreas some rest as I developed insulin resistance as a side effect of Lyme disease. After two months I”m taking a bit of time off from it and going back to a low fat plant based diet, my norm. All in all it hasn’t been a huge change for me in any way except food limitations and no guilt about eating too much avocado…

  • When you consider ethics, there is only one diet which doesn’t require the abuse, torment and murder of innocent animals. Therefore, any diet other than vegan is unethical, immoral and makes you an animal abusing hypocrite. You can be healthy either way so it is a choice. One’s a personal choice, the other has a victim who is stabbed in the throat and dismembered unnecessarily on your behalf.

  • I am allergic to nuts and berries. What can I have to substitute the fruit? I am substituting nuts for seeds. Pumpkin, chia, and hemp hearts.

  • You’re essentially saying vegans win hands down. As long as there’s lots of plants and less meat. Cause traditional keto you see people eating lots of meat

  • I don’t see in the comments or you mention NutritionFacts.org Dr. Greger has done an outstanding amount of research on the topic. Also watch his introductory video “Behind the Scenes” to see how robust he does the research. You can find the video at: https://youtu.be/1mbzjeCd_-8

  • Thanks for the great and science based info. Helps to cut trough the Jungle of opinions and religion like statements.
    Helps me also to go more and more towards healthy food. One step at a time

  • I’m doing vegan ketogenic diet right now, and I love it! I keep hearing people that are doing animal based keto have a lot of issues, constipation, bloating, keto rash, keto flu…. I haven’t had any of that and I feel amazing! 1st week down in full ketosis.. when I get down to a healthy BMI I will be switching to a wfpb diet because I know it’s the healthiest.❤ thanks for making this video!

  • Thank you for this because a lot of folk depict Keto as bacon �� cheese �� dairy�� grease��.
    I am curious about Vegan Keto although I am not vegan. So happy it’s not what I have previously seen it described asI am soooo gonna try!!!!!!

  • Thanks for confirming this for me keto/Vegan is totally possible.

    And, I was hoping you can please answer this: have you heard of a lowered libido when men switch to high fat/low carb from low fat/high carb. And, if so, will it return when the body gets accustomed to the new fuel source? I hope so. For a friend 😉

  • People have lost 80, 90, and over 100 pounds from keto. You mean to tell me that is all illusion? And no one can convince me that eating all the carbs you want is a good idea for my body type. Not saying that it’s not a good idea for certain bodies, but it doesn’t work for many. It’s easy to find studies to support just about any claim, but at the end of the day people need to do what’s right for their own individual body.

  • Great video! I was waiting to see what vegans though about this latest Ketogenic craze. What would be great is to have a debate between 2 doctors/nutritionists praising the characteristics of EACH diets

  • I love vegan keto it more for the mental benefits. All diets are great as long as they are ecofriendly and are able to be done for long term.

  • I’ve been Keto and IF for about 6 months now. Down 51 lbs. Had blood works done and my Uric Acid is up. So I want to try Keto vegetarian and see if that will help improve my level of Uric acid. Cholesterols wise my numbers are good.

  • Grains are bad for you because they need to be fermented and maybe even sprouted before cooking. And you only need a quarter of a cup for an average person.

  • I’m no keto nut, but @ 2:49, that study is about high protein diets, and keto isnt high protein. It’s high fat. Eating too much protein will actually cause your body to convert it to glucose and knock you out of ketosis.

  • I have done both vegan and plant based Keto and now I am switching back to grass fed animal protein in moderation and high in vegetables Keto. Sorry…but my body feels and beginning to see more results strength wise and I am getting leaner with more energy. I am not a sheep. I am not blinded by the nonsense people try to say what is best for my body. People stay awake and do what is best for your body. EXPERIMENT with your food intake and let YOUR body tell you what is best for you. All these organizations in any field always have hidden agendas. The macros that works best for me is…
    70% or higher Fats
    25% or lower Pro
    5% or lower in Carbs.
    The body is the TRUE expert.

  • Vegan can be anything that isn’t animal base. Most vegan food is junk food, full of fake meat, cheese and and high is fats. What you need to compare is “Plant Based” diet as epitomized by Dr. McDougall, Dr. Ornish. Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. T. Colin Campbell (who first used the term plant based). While Plant based may be vegan, the reverse is usually far different. Plant Based focuses of eating mainly starches as the main source of calories and without using any refined oils or fats. And all respects Plant based is far superior to vegan.

  • Soaking your grains before cooking overnight will counterbalance the phytic acid and release the enzyme inhibitors, therefore making them much easier to digest.

  • Vegan keto sounds like a immflammatory nightmare…sky high Omega 6 to 3 ratio, inadequate fiber, insulin resistance, even heart disease from high saturated fat.

    Keto is just bad!

  • Sure wish you’d do a video on some of the claims by the YouTube keto doctor Ken Berry. It’s unfortunate but some family and friends of mine have fallen hard for anything and everything he says.

  • How much weight should be put on a study like the first cited that has a relatively small sample size and has yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal? I’m genuinely curious and not meaning to be combative. It otherwise looks strong to me (inpatient, similar age and bmi of subjects, very low p-value), albeit in my very limited knowledge of the subject.

  • Awesome information as usual! Humans get very creative with their diets for sure. Several years ago I found
    eating tons of whole grains and beans, despite large salads, was too much for me. My body kept sending me signals. I am raw and not keto but consume lots of vegetables, fruits, sprouts, some sprouted grains and beans (lentils) and whatever nuts, seeds and avocado. Am still figuring out if low fat is best for me.
    Digestive problems can relate to allergies or a need for digestive enzymes, or the need to eat organic, Sadly many crops (grains, beans, tea, vegetables…) have been deliberately polluted with poisonous Monsanto GLYPHOSATE which causes digestive problems and other issues.
    The eye area directly relates to KIDNEY health, I believe in chinese medicine. Vegan doctors recommend low fat and no oils, but everyone must make their own choices. Dr. Cousens states vegans have to find whether they are better on higher/lower fat or higher/lower protein.. Know that Canola oil is made from mustard plant, really called rape-seed oil. I have read articles that say it made cows sick when fed to them, toxic. Industry does not want the truth to come out. Many restaurants have switched from olive oil to can-ola because it was very cheap-I would stay away from this oil, period.

  • Omg you could be my younger sister Lol!? ��

    I feel best when I eat just plant based vegan. Keeping it balanced with good carbs, protein, fat. 😉

  • I know people on the animal keto diet and I smh because they won’t listen. I wait for them to lament their skyrocketed cholesterol.

  • You argued that a standard keto diet clogs arteries but then showed a study where high protein diet clogs arteries? I’m not sure where keto preaches high protein, in fact the macro distribution for standard vegan and keto diets have the same amount of protein.

  • I’m doing it right now but it’s tough doing Keto vegan, this is my best Keto fat drink but I need more vegan fats! Help me! (Thanks��) https://youtu.be/EZxqrs6ZwOU

  • Everyone who would find out I was fasting for Ramadan would say how unhealthy and dangerous my religious practices are….now it’s called a hard dry fast and it’s supposed to be very scientifically healthy for the body…

  • But most keto diets arent vegan, in which case yes, vegan diets are much healthier. No cholesterol, less sat fat, no heme iron, no artificial hormones, no heterocyclic amines, less sulpher containing aminos leucine and methionine and no IGF-1. I mean really, its no contest at all

  • Your before body looks exactly like me now.. with extra thighs tho.. can you please tell me how long you are into keto to achieve this… you look fabulous btw…����

  • As I eat lots and lots of carbs from (sweet) potatoes, rice and quinoa I really cannot imagine what to eat when I cannot consume all these things.

  • I like that electrolyte powder. I am gonna check that out. I get cravings for sweets at night so I have made chia seed pudding or an avacado chocolate mousse. I like that vega brand. I got that same brand in a smaller size different kind slightly. That’s cool you prepare your own foods in the jars. I am on my 3rd week of keto vegan. I am down about 5 lbs. but I think I could lose more quickly if I don’t eat quite as much.

  • Reduced insulin resistance is a pro you didn’t mention. Also it’s not just Alzheimers, the beta-hydroxybutyrate molecules from being in ketosis cross the blood-brain barrier and would be beneficial to neurodegenerative diseases in general, and most people on it report greater mental clarity. Maybe its not a problem if you’re already vegan, but Keto also generally lowers triglyceride levels and raises HDL. Finally, for many it lowers blood pressure.

  • I dont see why people shouldnt just eat a reasonable vegan meal at the end of the day, with a bit of mindfulness about how many calories they burned on that day. From what I understand, as long as your liver is not stuffed full of sugars (which would eventually deplete) you are already entering keto when you wake up in the morning having fasted all night in your sleep. some people want to go really deep into keto, but you get many benefits from just stage 1 and 2 which we can achieve every day while still eating a normal healthy vegan diet.. it is more about timing your food.

  • When you consider ethics, there is only one diet which doesn’t require the abuse, torment and murder of innocent animals. Therefore, any diet other than vegan is unethical, immoral and makes you an animal abusing hypocrite. You can be healthy either way so it is a choice. One’s a personal choice, the other has a victim who is stabbed in the throat and dismembered unnecessarily on your behalf.

  • I recently started doing the vegan version of the ketogenic lifestyle (was already vegan before of course;)) & trying to learn as much as possible about it. Thanks for sharing this bit!! Like your channel watching more and more of your videos:)

  • I cycle vegan keto and wholefood plantbased. easiest way to keep diabetes in remission for me. being in ketosis its very unpleasant (no happy carb feels) after a few days so 3-4 days at most any i typically add in a low carb day when not doing full keto i feel great 95% of the time.

  • Show me how to get to 160grams of protein a day with a max of 10gram carbs without any powders or supplements its not possible without meat

  • I know this is over a year later but can someone do a keto diet WITHOUT losing weight?  How do you get enough calories without overloading on fats, and can it be done with lots of fruits (still eliminating grains)?  Would eating lots of grapes and apples along with good fats still reap the brain benefits of keto?

  • I just quit meat-based keto and starting vegan again but I’m concerned about gaining back the weight. On keto, I was very constipated while I never had that problem before.

  • The issue i have with all plants, grains and root vegetables ect, most of these contain high amounts of oxcelates, phytates, lectins, and gluten. Gluten being a major problem for everyone even if you don’t have celiac gluten is not doing any good. Oxcelates which is practically in all leafy vegetables and root vegetables causing inflammation and kydney stones over time.. which are bad and inflammatory to the body as much as fat is for someone with high cholesterol.

    Can’t win

  • Excellent video! Thank you. I am vegan almost…. still eat my organically fed truly free range/pasture very happy chicken eggs… albeit the hens do SCREECH with every birth of an egg, which is man’s genetic modifying to make chickens unnaturally lay daily eggs. Sadly, it is what it is now… one day, I’ll eliminate even eggs. Just my 2 cents worth…I appreciate your video information Captain!

  • I tried mixing keto and vegan diet for a month. It was difficult and very restrictive, but the lbs melted off and I felt a lot better.

  • To be quite honest I ve known ur channel for over 6 months now n only today I subcribed because of this post. Vegan Keto is possible. No ketogenic diet should b done long term tho. Please have more vegan diet posts. I like that you focus a lot on health from within. More energy and vitality, better skin and happy thoughts ��

  • I’ve dome keto since April. I’m down 67lbs, A1C down to 5.8, total cholesterol 164. I am trying to transition into a vegan keto. i would appreciate any help you could offer.

  • This type of Coronavirus was already identified in pig factory farms since early 2018, the risks were evidently present it was just a matter of time when it would jump from the factory farm pig population to make a human epidemic. We just don’t want to speak the truth, and admit the facts.

  • Vegan deficient in fats? Are you crazy? Ha. They live on avocado! Very high in fat. They also use lots of coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut name it they eat it! One of the problems of the vegan diet is actually that it can easily be so high in fats (all good fats, being plant basedbut still…) It’d be great if you decide to edit out that section. You have otherwise great information and an excellent delivery. Thanks for reading.

  • Don’t people eat berries and lemon/lime on keto? Aren’t those fruits low in carbs? Kale and collard greens are high in calcium and low in carbs.

  • One shoe not fit all anyone under 70! lol yes, 70 of course, plant based, exercise “it’s a wonderful life”.. that was me now at 70’s can’t get 15 pounds off. Im a woman, I swim and walk 2 miles day only plant based!b So I am going Keto but all organic meat but will replace with beans when I lose the weight. Just has been a few years and all this healthy plant based just one to two meals a day yes, easy for intermittent fasting just does not always work so important not to paint brush plant based works it does, if you are young!

  • great video!
    I think you should wear a douchy baseball cap during your alter ego segments, for more emphasis. Maybe even one with “make america great again” on it, but I guess you’d find it too political.

  • Just like all concerned parents I don’t want my children to consume harmful factory farmed meat just because it is convenient and cheap. I am strongly against factory farming and cruelty to animals and I am actively campaigning for people to change their food preferences but being Vegan is not the answer.

  • Hey there! This was pretty cool. I suggest that you check Dr. Will Cole, he wrote a book exactly about this amazing combo. Is called KETO-TARIAN.

  • HUMANS ARE MEAT EATERS! We can eat SOME PLANTS but most of them are toxic if not cooked….we can actually digest RAW MEAT… stop this NWO DIEt!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ok so I have a question!! It seems that the vegan ketogenic diet relies pretty heavily on natural sources of plant fats, particularly, nuts. However, I understand that nuts contain high levels of phytic acid, which impair mineral absorption and can lead to deficiencies. Usually this is fine cause most people only eat a handful or so of nuts, but when you make your diet 80% fat, you will be intaking a significant amount of phytic acid. What do?

  • Hey guys I took notes:
    (Please watch the video though, because it is very helpful & goes more in detail)
    To get into Ketosis FAST—
    1. Cut out the sugar (no fruit, processed sugars etc.)
    2. To limit the carbs, you really have to count your carb intake; try downloading the “Keto” app as suggested so you know what’s in your food. If you’re like me and carbs are your life, just stay away from them.
    3. Intermittent Fasting
    4. Work out during your fasting hours; helps the process even more. Work out before you break your fast. Work out after you last meal. Workouts don’t have to be extreme — don’t think you have to be a gym warrior! Just work out! Get on a treadmill, take a walk etc.
    5. If you get sugar cravings, try a shot of apple cider vinegar.
    6. COFFEEE HELPS! Especially when you are trying to get your sugars/carbs down.
    7. Himalayan salt is BEST
    8. There are electrolytes she mentioned that you can buy to keep you from getting the “Keto flu” (sodium, magnesium, and potassium) surely you can eat your electrolytes, but doing the supplement and eating them is better.
    9. She mention a great protein powder by VEGA
    10. MOTIVATE YOURSELF, you GOT this! You may feel a little weird at first, but your body is going to do this amazing switch and start burning fat. As a result you’ll have improved mental health, physical health and the weight loss you desire! Stay strong guys!

  • There is no scenario where supermarket meat is good for you. It’s full of steroids, antibiotics, and artery-clogging fat. Vegan-Keto is an option.

  • Dr Klaper says its not healthy to stay in ketosis long term, and it’s the process of coming out of ketosis that what is most beneficial

  • I think people need to look at diet as adaptable. If you are not obese it diabetic then a keto diet should be a temporary something you do once in a while. This diet was prescribed by a doctor to help his clients who could not lose weight because of problems with their diabetes!!!!!

    The were diabetic and in the brink of death and losing limbs. Seriously bothers me that this became a fad diet…

  • Vegan keto works amazing for me. I do not have any issues at all. My body stays lean and I have lots of energy. But later down the road I will alternate higher carbs back into my lifestyle.

  • wahsashashashashashahahaahahahahahdashdashashashas please dont make me fucking laugh wjasjajaj GOD OF STEOIRDS TALKIN ABOUT HEALTH

  • What always interests me the most about those keto diets or intermittent fasting diets are claims about this mental clarity and heightened cognitive functions. Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find any reliable source of information to verify such claims or show the science behind them. Maybe that would be a good idea for a video? Just throwing an idea; it seems like an untapped niche

  • U don’t look like a typical vegan! I’m keto but I’m also a carnivore based keto! Good to see a healthy looking vegan! Keto cheers ��

  • people really need to know the truth about fat and carbs so this is great! good job:).
    Vegan all the way for the planet, animals, and other human beings <3!

  • Could you please explain in more detail why there is a difference between the consumption of sugar and complex carbs? For example the enzyme amylase breaks down complex carbs. So even a complex carb is metabolized in the form of sugar, right? Is the higher amount of fiber the main reason the more complex carb is considered more healthy or is there another reason?

  • I’ve seen it myself, growing up in a pagan family the vegan leaning are all like Wiccans and love new age shit. “Keto science is trash (looks at astrology) omg YAAAAASSSSS)”

    Keto leaning are all fat goth dudes listening to black metal burning Bibles covering themselves in Baphomet tattoos saying carbs will make you a twink “but dude you’re fat” “this is muscle, peak masculinity…hold on having a heart attack”

  • vegan keto is the only thing thats ever made maintaining my weight effortless. i always pile on the pounds eating carbs and am consistently hungry (aka HANGRY). blood work is perfect after a year vegan keto.

  • There is also no long term multi generational evidence of any civilisation thriving on soley a plant based diet. The only long term study is the Seventh Day Adventist covering less than 1 generation. I am wholefood plant based but this is a fact. Keto and Paleo are easy to research and critique, the book “debunking the paleo diet” is a great example The standard western diet is appalling so clearly a movement to plant based will show great benefits. We don’t need all these experts to tell us that, 5 minutes research tells us that….it is the excess in meat and processed food that is causing the illness epidemic closely linked to lack of exercise and stress being a major factor in modern illnesses. I believe that we should all eat plant based but we are a living experiment. Many long term diet related health issues manifest after many years of consumption of the wrong things or not enough of the right things. I also do not except that small amounts of lean meat occasionally in any well balanced diet would so any harm and there is plenty of evidence to say it can be very good for us. I am clearly avoiding the ethical points here. The facts still remains that the longest living significant population country on the planet is Japan at life expectancy of 83.7 (Japan is ranked 2nd in the world behind Hong Kong at 84 years, but Hong Kong only has a population of 7.5m v 127m in Japan), Japan is one of the highest consumers of fish and meat but also highly vegetable dense and rice being a key staple. This number is not skewed by the Okinawa diet as this is only around 1% of the total Japanese population, and the Okinawan still eat a very small amount of fish. I stress I am plant based I am also highly educated in medicine and nutrition from a professional perspective, I simply try to balance the opinions. The Vegan movement needs to be aware that when it grows to a point of creating state financial issues, the powers that are in control will use their power and media control to discredit veganism. For all the haters that will disagree, Do some independent non bias vegan view research and please accept this is supporting comments. Final point is that any doctor that supports consuming oil needs to be challenged this is becoming a massive evidence supported danger.

  • can somebody explain to me how you can be a man, on a vegan keto dietwith the required amount of protein from plant based proteins sans the carbs? it sounds impossible

  • Animals have not been created as mere resources, they form communities and groups just like human beings they deserve respect and it is our duty to stop their abuse. We have the ruthless agribusiness factory farming industry where we treat animals in the most terrible abusive ways. Such abuse is leading mankind into a spiral of disease and viruses and this food system will destroy our environment and health.

  • At the antioxidant content study.. The stats student jumped out, but that mean is definitely skewed, especially since the listed plant based max is 2897, for a more accurate number median would be a better number to compare. Also most people don’t solely eat animal products so again highlighting the mixed category would be a more accurate reading of the data. This may have j been an oversight or lack of knowledge on your part, though I feel like it wasn’t. Sorry this is hella long, all I’m trying to say is you could compared the.88 with the.33, and still made the point that eating solely plant foods will ensure you eat more antioxidants. Bc rn you do kind of look like you are intentionally wrongly interpreting data to sway your viewers.

  • The Inuit. So yes there are society’s that are Keto.
    High fat does not equal eating meat. There are high fat vegetables, but the high fat in keto also does not mean eating more fat than other diets. It just means eating more fat in relation to proteins and carbs. If i’m eating less fat than the RDA how am I hurting my health? Keto is low carb not no carb. Only our Red blood cells need carbs and we can get that on less than 50 grams a day. Anything above that will just make you fat unless you exercise your ass off everyday. Too much exercise leads to adrenal fatigue and joint damage which is really unhealthy.
    Most of human evolution took place during the ice age. It was very hard to find vegetables to eat. They mostly ate meat, berries and nuts when they did eat. They often would go days without food.

  • You don’t need a ketogenic diet. You just need ketosis. Do intermittent fasting 20 4 or 16 8 every day, throw in a little fasted exercise and you’ll have it with most any reasonable diet.

  • I started keto in Sept 2019, just got my cholesterol back at 364 total, mostly ldl the hdl was in the right range and the triglycerides. Now, I do have hereditary cholesterol issues but was still surprised. Trying to transition to a vegan keto having some trouble but confident I will get there. My diet before was heavy in cream, butter, and eggs. I did lose about 30 pounds on the keto diet and in a healthy weight range now (115 at 5’2″). This video was informative, thank you.

  • Love that you are able to laugh at all the nonsense that is out there. Really enjoy the simplicity of the science and how clearly you explain it. Thank you Dr Gil.

  • Been on Cronometer for a few months. I myself thrive best on at least 30% fat macros, 12 to 20% protein macros, and 30% to 50% carbs macros.

  • You’re essentially saying vegans win hands down. As long as there’s lots of plants and less meat. Cause traditional keto you see people eating lots of meat

  • HUMANS ARE MEAT EATERS! We can eat SOME PLANTS but most of them are toxic if not cooked….we can actually digest RAW MEAT… stop this NWO DIEt!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Vegan can be anything that isn’t animal base. Most vegan food is junk food, full of fake meat, cheese and and high is fats. What you need to compare is “Plant Based” diet as epitomized by Dr. McDougall, Dr. Ornish. Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. T. Colin Campbell (who first used the term plant based). While Plant based may be vegan, the reverse is usually far different. Plant Based focuses of eating mainly starches as the main source of calories and without using any refined oils or fats. And all respects Plant based is far superior to vegan.

  • He left out the truth of the matter regarding putting on weight. High glycemic foods which spike blood sugar and cause the fat storage hormone insulin to store this excess energy as fat, is what makes you put on weight. Eating fats, do not effect blood sugar, eating protein has little effect on blood sugar, but high starch carbohydrates or high sugar carbs DO raise blood sugar and cause excess insulin. Surprised, this guy does not know this basic truth.

  • I went from Keto to Vegan overnight 8 days ago and gained 4 pounds. Dropping meat and dairy is not going to cause weight gain so the only real change is the carbs. Not sure why this happened. Maybe too drastic a change. Vegan Keto sounds appealing. However, an important point to make is that years ago, most people weren’t fat and they ate protein, fat and carbs, even sugar and no unusual diets. I love Vegan and don’t plan to stop but the only real change over the yeas, as I see it, is junk food.

  • Seriously? Being in meat Keto is already challenging, adding plant base to it is just going to make your life a prison. What is the point of living when you have to restrict diet to such an extend?
    Living longer?? you mean living a lone, sad, boring life?

  • I’ve seen it myself, growing up in a pagan family the vegan leaning are all like Wiccans and love new age shit. “Keto science is trash (looks at astrology) omg YAAAAASSSSS)”

    Keto leaning are all fat goth dudes listening to black metal burning Bibles covering themselves in Baphomet tattoos saying carbs will make you a twink “but dude you’re fat” “this is muscle, peak masculinity…hold on having a heart attack”

  • Hi Mic, I really don’t want to go on a vegan keto but I’m deciding to give it a try purely because I’ve tried everything to try get my stomach to stop bloating and I have fat accumulating on my stomach which I never had before 40. I’ve heard it’s hormonal and while I do see a lot of people over 40 with bigger stomachs I’ve also seen others that remain slim so I refuse to give up. I will send a comment once I’ve given the vegan keto a try.

  • Veganism is an ethical stance, not a diet.
    A vegan diet says more about what a person is NOT eating than what they ARE eating.
    And you can eat a vegan diet but still wear fur, leather, use soap tested on animals, and visit zoos and circuses.
    But of course you could be vegan AND eat whole foods plant based.
    That is the way I roll!:)

  • You make it sound so easy! I’ve been trying SO HARD to get into ketosis as a vegan for the past 3 weeks and I feel like Im going to give it one more week before I give up, as I feel like I’ve had the keto flu for 3 weeks (and Im peeing above medium on the ketostrips every time). I am doing about 30 grams of carbs a day so maybe thats my problem BUT I have no idea how to eat less than that and not starve myself (and Im not eating any bad foods)! Any recommendations?

  • Grains are bad for you because they need to be fermented and maybe even sprouted before cooking. And you only need a quarter of a cup for an average person.

  • I’m doing vegan ketogenic diet right now, and I love it! I keep hearing people that are doing animal based keto have a lot of issues, constipation, bloating, keto rash, keto flu…. I haven’t had any of that and I feel amazing! 1st week down in full ketosis.. when I get down to a healthy BMI I will be switching to a wfpb diet because I know it’s the healthiest.❤ thanks for making this video!

  • Loved this video! I’m currently on a vegan keto diet �� so it was fun to hear the difference! Mind you, I choose vegan first and foremost for the animal and planet so it’s perfect for me!

  • The cure against dark circles is makeup:D I don’t know if the vegan keto youtubers you showed are using some but it is likely they do so.

  • So its a vegan diet with low carbs? It has to be a hell of a lot better than a regular Keto diet…now renamed the Angioplasty Diet.

  • There is also no long term multi generational evidence of any civilisation thriving on soley a plant based diet. The only long term study is the Seventh Day Adventist covering less than 1 generation. I am wholefood plant based but this is a fact.

  • I tried to do the keto thing but it is one more restriction for a possible maybe outcome that could come with a lot of side effects and negatives. Can you imagine the headache of vegan me to gluten free and avoiding food sensitivities? My family would be so frustrated. I don’t see such an amazing pay off to keto that it is worth all the oil and trouble vs just eating the vegan plant based healthy approach.

  • Vegan Keto + IF from 18:00 until 10:00 or more + 3 or 2 meals + good sleep 7-8 hours + contact with nature + 4-5 per week sport. I feel great! ���� Great video!

  • Mic, can you add video on 8/16 diet? It is a kind fo daily keto. I am a diabetic type 2 eating WFPB without drugs. I am on this diet for 2 months and my glucos level in the morning < 95
    Thanks

  • Please could you program on Piers Morgan and his lack of education on the subject of veganism? Every time I see him arguing with vegans it drives me mad with his refusal to understand veganism. He thinks he is so superior and obviously thinks vegans are quite stupid. He really deserves to be ridiculed for his behaviour.

  • great video!
    I think you should wear a douchy baseball cap during your alter ego segments, for more emphasis. Maybe even one with “make america great again” on it, but I guess you’d find it too political.

  • Instead being so critical you should encourage people that are trying the vegan keto. You forget one thing! it is for people who want to LOOSE extra kilos, people with water retention etc. It is definitely not for you and for any vegan on a normal body weight. For a someone doing a lot of sports and burning energy, of course high carb is desired, but for the ones wanting to loose the body fat vegan keto is fantastic. Why don t you make a video on vegan junk food? I have seen so many vegans eating fried donuts, biscuits, cookies, overly cooked veggies and so on, buying kilos of produce and packaging, why don t you talk about the huge amount of packaging if you bring into discussion carbon footprint of vegan Keto? No matter where you look, staying modern, eating healthy DOES imply consumerism, waste and so on. Just be real!

  • Keto healed my IBS, high cholesterol and Asthma/allergiesand I lost 60 lbs. I’ve been Keto for 3 years and run blood tests everyday.

    So no plant based for me. Gonna keep enjoying my steaks and eggs!

  • Your before body looks exactly like me now.. with extra thighs tho.. can you please tell me how long you are into keto to achieve this… you look fabulous btw…����

  • As always, thanks for keeping it real and not driving a single agenda. Also, I think that the out takes were great. I wouldn’t mind more laughs.

  • Soaking your grains before cooking overnight will counterbalance the phytic acid and release the enzyme inhibitors, therefore making them much easier to digest.

  • I’ve been triathlon training for a few months; during training I tried vegan keto for 6 weeks, then went back to my usual high carb WFPB. Keto wasn’t sustainable, I was so tired even though I was getting more calories from oil, avocados, tons of nuts, etc. High carb hands down delivers the best performance and quality of life for me. I also throw a decent amount of nuts & seeds in there, so the fat definitely isn’t low either. But NO OYUL! Lol

  • wahsashashashashashahahaahahahahahdashdashashashas please dont make me fucking laugh wjasjajaj GOD OF STEOIRDS TALKIN ABOUT HEALTH

  • I extended my telomeres by 17 years beyond my calendar age. I’m a 95% vegan starchivore. Test your telomere length before and after your chosen diets….the diet wars will come to an end once and for all.

  • Mic, can you add video on 8/16 diet? It is a kind fo daily keto. I am a diabetic type 2 eating WFPB without drugs. I am on this diet for 2 months and my glucos level in the morning < 95
    Thanks

  • fellow San Diegan who has been trying to go keto for a month now and ca’t quite make it stick. i’ve also been vegan for 3 years and btw i LOVE that Bitch’n sauce my fave is the chipotle flavor! i suffer from binge eating and being sedate a lot because of my disabilities and when i find a few easy recipes to try its good but then i get bored of what i’m eating so quick or ill eat too much of it and that will somehow make me hate it haha. your recipes sound pretty good although i don’t have much of a sweet tooth. i crave carbs and salty snacks 90% of the time. i order A LOT of Chipotle Mexican Grill burritos. any advice or recipe sources? i really think it may be my only chance to lose weight effectively with my restrictions and lifestyle:)

  • Ok, but is that keto plantbased diet is going to be better/healthier then high carb, low fat plantbased diet? In my opinion not, but I’m just a simple vegan here, not a doctor ��
    #plantbasedforlife ❤️

  • Hi! I’ve been on a vegan keto diet for about 4 days now, I am not sure if i reached ketosis, but I’m experiencing teeth sensitivity, everytime I try to eat something my jaw and teeth hurt very much. I know my teeth don’t have cavities because I went to the dentist last month. Has anyone experienced these kind of simptoms on a keto diet? I’m getting off of keto, because a few people online said they had teeth pain as well on keto and ofc i cannot eat any vegan sources of fats because of my teeth right now.. hoping for sam answers

  • We must admit. there are a lot more polyphenols and antioxidants as well as potassium and magnesium which are already very low in most diets. and are absolutly essential for metabolism and muscle and heart health. in a vegan diet since a lot more fruits are accepted. That by far is better for long term anti aging diet. thats my only argument with the keto versus vegan diet.

  • Vegan deficient in fats? Are you crazy? Ha. They live on avocado! Very high in fat. They also use lots of coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut name it they eat it! One of the problems of the vegan diet is actually that it can easily be so high in fats (all good fats, being plant basedbut still…) It’d be great if you decide to edit out that section. You have otherwise great information and an excellent delivery. Thanks for reading.

  • Oh man this could not have come at a better time… this whole demonization of carbs by everyone and the media was really getting on my nerves. Thanks doc!

  • can somebody explain to me how you can be a man, on a vegan keto dietwith the required amount of protein from plant based proteins sans the carbs? it sounds impossible

  • One thing common to all keto promoters is that they are all skinny, buff keto guys include a few high carb meals per week to promote release of insulin and muscle growth because they saw their gains drop on pure keto diets.

  • Are you vegan? Are you.soing vegan keto? Becuase I will subscribe so fast. I just cant subscribe and see meat popping up on my vids����
    Thank you for these videos though!

  • I am allergic to nuts and berries. What can I have to substitute the fruit? I am substituting nuts for seeds. Pumpkin, chia, and hemp hearts.

  • I am staring my raw vegan keto veto/keagan) meal plan and I am keeping video record of it. I have done Carnivore and now I am trying something new.

  • Thanks for sharing, Great info!��…I uploaded a video about how I lost 50 lbs! if you find the time, go check out the video. I share exactly how I lost the weight ��:)

  • Thank you Thomas, love the vegan videos! Please make more. I am transitioning to plant based living coming from Keto, and I’m going away from Keto now because of the starch solution! But I still value your content very much!!

  • Hey, I live in the mediterranean and before I switched to veganism my diet was ridiculously high in fat.
    Now that I have incorporated more fats(as non proccesed as possible) on my plate I noticed a quite big boost in overall energy levels.
    Great work PBN!

  • What makes a “keto” diet keto? Technically speaking, doesn’t one have to measure to be sure you are in a state of ketosis? And, if this is so, is there anything unhealthy about remaining in a state of ketosis for prolonged periods of time? thx

  • I’d like to see a debate on this topic with Dr. Joel Kahn vs. Dr. Eric Berg. Dr. Berg has convincing arguments for the weight loss portion of the keto diet but not for the health/longevity arguments like Dr. Kahn has against it.

  • There is one incredible reason why I think the Ketogenic diet is different from any other I’ve encountered: By exploring the Keto diet, you end up understanding how the body functions and relates to macronutrients. Keto has everything to do with insulin levels. The fact that you use ketones as fuel is due to low insulin levels, due to low amounts of glucose in the blood, due to eating less high glycemic carbs and or intermittent fasting. This is going to be the case whether you’re vegan or not. For those that are meat eaters, they end up eating a lot less meat when on Keto since it’s not a protein free for all like other diets.

  • Diets high in glycaemic index result in higher levels of blood glucose and insulin, which promote perturbations [disturbances] in the insulin-like growth factors (IGFs). ‘Previous research suggests increased levels of IGFs are associated with increased lung cancer risk.
    Vegan diets are typically high carb vs keto diets which are low carb. Could that be why vegans get more cancers than keto-ists? It’s a thought which vegans will no doubt fight to deny

  • So concretely we can eat tempeh, nuts, greens, healthy oil, and seeds. You surely going gonna loose weight, but how do make a meals interesting with so few options?

  • I was doing vegan keto and intermittent fasting and felt great. I drifted back to high carb vegan diet, gained weight and felt awful. I am going back to Vegan Keto!

  • This keto fad is spreading. It’s everywhere…Everyone I know seems to think carbs are the devil. I’m not big into conspiracy theories but it’s almost like some kind of population control tactic. I’ll stick to my yams and beans and greens

  • Keto flu is actually a result of electrolyte depletion. Glycogen stores a lot of water so when you drain your glycogen, you flush out a lot of water and with it goes your electrolytes. You become dehydrated. Just make sure you keep up your electrolytes in the beginning (Hymalayan pink salt is awesome) and you will be fine.

  • Please add closed caption on video for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing viewers. I know Dr. Joel Kahn for many years. I deserve to know what they are being said. Please add it.

  • So its a vegan diet with low carbs? It has to be a hell of a lot better than a regular Keto diet…now renamed the Angioplasty Diet.

  • I’m insulin resistance and I have PCOS mostly shitty-junk food vegetarian diet lead me there. I tried vege-keto (or more precise highly-fat diet) and it really made the difference in my health and the way I feel. Gonna keep up with it altough carbs cravings sometimes are tough haha

  • Uh. I guess you could do vegan keto, but you need to make sure to get lots of brewer’s yeast for b12.
    I have been doing keto forever plan for one year, and have been seeing a naturopath, getting blood tests for my thyroid, glucose and vitamin levels. If I stopped keto plan, I would have thyroiditis, be a diabetic and have severe IBS. I am thankful that I solved my issues through eating meats and veggies. Lots of mct oil, avocado oil, lard!!! (Yum). My blood tests are a helluva lot better than before I started. No chance of being diabetic on this program.
    Btw, I think keto diet is not a “diet”. It’s for life!!!
    I don’t think this guy knows what he’s talking about. I am doing well as shown from blood tests.

    What would the world be like if we turned those wheat, corn and soybean fields into growing vegetables and raising chickens out in the open? I think it would be grand!

  • this is just what I needed to know!!! I’m not vegan anymore because I’m back on the fish but I don’t like the taste of air/land animals or dairy so….this is excellent information!!! thank you!!!

  • Dude you need to do some research and listen to the Drs on here that do keto, firstly…cholesterol is actually healthy for us, especially brain health, our body makes cholesyerol, its about your trigs count..also meat is not bad you, stop the bloody fear mongering.

  • Super helpful, thank you! I’m on a vegan keto way of eating at the moment and have had such amazing results, both physically and mentally. Sharing a few vlogs about it on my channel!

  • You argued that a standard keto diet clogs arteries but then showed a study where high protein diet clogs arteries? I’m not sure where keto preaches high protein, in fact the macro distribution for standard vegan and keto diets have the same amount of protein.

  • I recently started doing the vegan version of the ketogenic lifestyle (was already vegan before of course;)) & trying to learn as much as possible about it. Thanks for sharing this bit!! Like your channel watching more and more of your videos:)

  • This is not my first keto cycle, been doing this for a while now. This time is different though because one of the most respected authorities in the study of keto recommended that people do vegan keto instead. Good to see that there is someone else out there that does this, I need some pointers, not so much worried about substituting meat as I rarely ate meat on keto anyway but dairy and eggs are my weakness and I am not exactly sure how to do keto without them. Good video liked and subscribed.

  • Everyone who would find out I was fasting for Ramadan would say how unhealthy and dangerous my religious practices are….now it’s called a hard dry fast and it’s supposed to be very scientifically healthy for the body…

  • Thanks for the video Mike! One of the biggest cons for me is the no beans keto mandate. The healthiest societies on the planet all eat a ton of beans. Even ancient gladiators as per the research discussed on The Game Changers were primarily “bean and barley eaters.” And Dr. Greger from Nutrition Facts recommends we eat beans 3 times a day-even for breakfast-to not die. Doesn’t make sense to me to exclude one of the world’s most affordable superfoods, and one that comes in so many natural flavors and variety, which are essential to any diet regimen. SMH

  • Hey Mic, love your videos, but that’s not at all how Alzheimer’s works. I’ve commented before about you treating correlation as causation. When you come from a factual angle, you really need to watch yourself on “if, then” statements. If they’re not backed by research, you shouldn’t state it as a medical fact.

    -a frustrated psych major

  • Wow what a plumper before! After no body shame I need to put my dog on that diet. I also need to stop kicking my dog. Animals are people too and need a vote

  • Do you know of any studies looking into part-time vegan (or flexitarian) benefits? I am thinking to eat a vegan diet on weekdays and vegetarian diet on the weekends, and occasional meat, fish and chicken. This is just better for my lifestyle.

  • Are you vegan? Are you.soing vegan keto? Becuase I will subscribe so fast. I just cant subscribe and see meat popping up on my vids����
    Thank you for these videos though!

  • How about the gut-health? You’ve mentioned the importance of bone broth on a ketogenic diet in other videos, but what do you take/do insted of the bone broth as a vegan?

  • I really wanted to see your opinion about keto (both vegan and regular) and it doesnt really sound like something for me, I’ll stay with my hclf diet ��

  • SO psyched you posted this interview! I’ve recently begun a Vegan Keto diet and am loving the results. All plant-based. I love how their have been studies on the vegan version that support it along with some pf my favorite plant-based doctors and scientists in the community. Thanks for your channel!!

  • If we were meant to be vegan then why is it that the brain shrinks on a vegan diet witch is irreversible. Vegans are more likely to have brain dieses like Alzheimer’s and have basically the same mortality rate as healthy meat eaters. Doctor Greger, Fuhrman and McDougall. All have YouTube videos stating these facts and in the same sentence say to stay away from meat. I’ll start listening to them once they get there facts straight.

  • Hi! I’ve been on a vegan keto diet for about 4 days now, I am not sure if i reached ketosis, but I’m experiencing teeth sensitivity, everytime I try to eat something my jaw and teeth hurt very much. I know my teeth don’t have cavities because I went to the dentist last month. Has anyone experienced these kind of simptoms on a keto diet? I’m getting off of keto, because a few people online said they had teeth pain as well on keto and ofc i cannot eat any vegan sources of fats because of my teeth right now.. hoping for sam answers

  • A lot of people nowadays are working to find out the best way to drop weight. Then again, being able to discover a diet plan that will work for you is hard to discover. A crucial thing you want to understand is that a diet is effective for one person might not operate for another. So you must know what your getting into before you start one of these diets. This may give you enough info to find out if this really is something which is suitable to your needs. Read more here https://truehealthreport.com/xtreme-fat-loss-diet-review/

  • My issue is with quality for me. I suffer from inflammation. I like a vegetarian diet. But I like steak. Here is my focus…I want the best health with all food groups good for me. No processed and if I have to have processed which brand and what….I don’t have a lot of options as stores go around here.

  • under armor has a great website http://www.myfitnesspal.com for free, which will track weight, daily food values, etc…. VERY helpful for all different diet types.

  • Blah blah… ancient “unhealthy” keto being discussed here. For the record 75 “fat” pounds lost here (not water). Healthy Keto is NOT about scooping up animal fat with a spoon for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So tired of people calling it a “fad” or saying things that just aren’t true about people on healthy keto. The disinformation here is just LOUD. We don’t live on coconut oil either lol.. it’s an option! When you learn how to eat keto the right way (hint hint Dr. Berg) you don’t have any of these insane issues. Dark circles under the eyes? Not. For the record, we’re not eating more meat than we did before on the standard American diet either! The real bottom line here, people on keto are gaining so many health benefits that far outweigh the issues they had when they were high carb and insulin resistant. We don’t “weigh” our food ALL the time. Lol..When you eat a salad once you know how many carbs you’re eating, it’s so easy it’s ridiculous. The whole carb vs net carb thing is not rocket science. So the whining about having to weigh food all the time is pretty lame, we don’t. You ACTUALLY learn what you’re putting in your body doing keto. You learn WHY you’ve been unhealthy and overweight. You learn WHY you’ve been struggling to lose weight despite pounding the gym for years. You finally live life without inflammation and the high blood pressure. You eat whole foods with a balance of nutrients through veggies and supplements. So please, enough with the ancient studies or “paid for” studies and keto deception. Why not state the clear benefits???? Hello? When you don’t hear a balanced argument you know something is sketchy. Just saying!

  • Each have their place. Me and my brother did experiments on ourselves when we had the same weight, we also have the same height but that is constant. We both work out, don’t smoke don’t drink. Ate same food. I have no issues on keto or 90% meat and some veggies. On carbs I have different glucose response than him. He has a lot less issues on carbs than me. On dairy I have no trouble, on dairy he gets diarrhea and feels bad afterwards. I lost 12 kg on eating carnivore during the pandemic because it was super convenient. I lost no strength. My brother performs his best on carbs, I perform my best on keto overall. There is no reason to put them against each other.

  • Wow, thanks. I’m not vegan but I’ve been vegetarian for 40 years! I think I’m consuming too much protein in my macro mix. I recently 3 years ago, added eggs, since we have chickens and even more recently I added high mountain, clean, caught that day, Appalachian mountain trout! Only tried the trout twice because…Unrelatedly directly I stopped using whey protein.
    Any, I’m excited to go at keto again. Thanks!!

  • Hey gay boi looks like Dave Feldman took your ass to school. Bet your dying inside knowing that high LDL is actually good for you when HDL is above 50 and Trig below 100! Sucks when everything u believe in has been turned upside down! Get gud son!

  • I’ve been Keto and IF for about 6 months now. Down 51 lbs. Had blood works done and my Uric Acid is up. So I want to try Keto vegetarian and see if that will help improve my level of Uric acid. Cholesterols wise my numbers are good.

  • I’m no keto nut, but @ 2:49, that study is about high protein diets, and keto isnt high protein. It’s high fat. Eating too much protein will actually cause your body to convert it to glucose and knock you out of ketosis.

  • To be quite honest I ve known ur channel for over 6 months now n only today I subcribed because of this post. Vegan Keto is possible. No ketogenic diet should b done long term tho. Please have more vegan diet posts. I like that you focus a lot on health from within. More energy and vitality, better skin and happy thoughts ��

  • Great video! Question, I finally understand net carbs but 17:40 sugars? Is there a total gram per day like net carbs I.e being 20 or below? I’m getting prepped to start Sunday ���� you see this @laurenjean

  • That study shows (again) that Kevin Hall doesn’t understand the KETO way of life:-D
    It’s impossible to show anything about KETO in short term studies like his fat adaptation takes months. Like you he is biased:) Why don’t u link to real studies about keto / low carb? And why do u still see a problem in cholesterol? Look at sick people with diabetes and NAFLD high TG!

    A vegan diet is unhealthy to the most people bc they don’t understand to supplement the right way yes u has to supplement on a vegan diet bc it’s not a suitable human diet and most soy and canola is GMO mono cropping with pesticide residues.

  • I’ve been working on a vegan-keto diet lately because my blood sugars have increased greatly since eating vegan. Maybe I can do a carb cycling type of thing; not sure yet. I did ketogenic when I was eating animals, but my digestion and cholesterol were off the charts. I’m hoping vegan-keto is the holy grail for me.

  • Hi, i tried this fad diet for 1 week and i almost pass out of too low blood pressure, blood sugar & my whole body stiffen like a plank. I had glossectomy 2 yrs ago due to tongue cancer. My whole body was rearranged by the surgeons. I wish they gave me the option of using diet instead of surgery.

  • I can tell you from Esselstyn MD work Vegan keto is not better than low fat whole food plant based. For many people if they were to eat this way even plant based would end up with stents, bypass or even worse. Get your blood work checked frequently and then you will know what way of eating is tolerable and healthful. My blood for instance shows higher fat, higher risk for heart disease. Even things like dark chocolate and peanut butter are problematic.

  • Notes; 80% fat 15% Protein 5% Carp, Avocados, raw coconut oil & milk, Pine nuts, Almonds, Flax seeds, Chia seeds, Algal Oil,. Protein are Tempeh and soy products without Gmo.

  • It’s amazing how every time I watch a video on a vegan youtube channel I get an ad for some keto diet supplement. You can’t do the keto diet without supplements apparently. Anyways, I always let them play for at least a minute while I turn off the sound and go do something else for a bit.Such nonsense.

  • Don’t people eat berries and lemon/lime on keto? Aren’t those fruits low in carbs? Kale and collard greens are high in calcium and low in carbs.

  • This type of Coronavirus was already identified in pig factory farms since early 2018, the risks were evidently present it was just a matter of time when it would jump from the factory farm pig population to make a human epidemic. We just don’t want to speak the truth, and admit the facts.

  • I’ve been on a vegetarian keto for almost a year and it completely revolutionized my life. The levels of well being, energy, cognition have improved n huge ways.
    I do eat sardines, salmon, oysters, mackerel about 3 times a week though which makes me a pescatarian I know, but 18 days out of the month I’m either vegan or vegetarian due to the eggs I eat. I used to have hypothyroidism which went away within 2 weeks of fasting and keto lifestyle.

  • Although I would probably agree a kito vegan diet would be very good for you, I Think you may need to research this without the vegan biases.

  • I went from Keto to Vegan overnight 8 days ago and gained 4 pounds. Dropping meat and dairy is not going to cause weight gain so the only real change is the carbs. Not sure why this happened. Maybe too drastic a change. Vegan Keto sounds appealing. However, an important point to make is that years ago, most people weren’t fat and they ate protein, fat and carbs, even sugar and no unusual diets. I love Vegan and don’t plan to stop but the only real change over the yeas, as I see it, is junk food.

  • Have you ever noticed that the vegan “experts” scientific commentary is always brief, emotional and lacking in meatiness (sorry couldn’t help myself.) What I mean is there’s usually no real substance to their arguments and the statements they make tend to be “self-evident truths” for which no data needs to be provided. Vegans.. with all due respect go listen to the experts on the other side of this debate like I listen to your “experts” and tell me if there’s no truth to what I’m saying.

  • That study shows (again) that Kevin Hall doesn’t understand the KETO way of life:-D

  • Thanks, although we need to be accurate most keto followers are not high protein, but other than that love the interview, thanks again

  • I have been on a very strict vegan keto diet for two months.It has ended a lifelong feeling of hunger that has been stressful. I’m also hopeful it will give my pancreas some rest as I developed insulin resistance as a side effect of Lyme disease. After two months I”m taking a bit of time off from it and going back to a low fat plant based diet, my norm. All in all it hasn’t been a huge change for me in any way except food limitations and no guilt about eating too much avocado…

  • It’s amazing how every time I watch a video on a vegan youtube channel I get an ad for some keto diet supplement. You can’t do the keto diet without supplements apparently. Anyways, I always let them play for at least a minute while I turn off the sound and go do something else for a bit.Such nonsense.

  • Yawn but still FIBER! which is BS. Cholesterol is of no importance according to the AMA as of Jan 2018. So stop harping about cholesterol. Boosting your HDL matters far more than lowering your cholesterol, esp for women. You need non-cyan B12 and the ONLY way to get that is from animal meats. End of story.

  • I tried to do the keto thing but it is one more restriction for a possible maybe outcome that could come with a lot of side effects and negatives. Can you imagine the headache of vegan me to gluten free and avoiding food sensitivities? My family would be so frustrated. I don’t see such an amazing pay off to keto that it is worth all the oil and trouble vs just eating the vegan plant based healthy approach.

  • Please read this and consider a video of it

  • I went vegan to reduce my cholesterol. I didn’t know that coconut oil was bad for LDL and I’ve been using it. Thanks for the information

  • I am staring my raw vegan keto veto/keagan) meal plan and I am keeping video record of it. I have done Carnivore and now I am trying something new.

  • I was vegetarian for 10 years, now vegan for four years but in the past few months I have been very stressed and depressed and just eating so much vegan junk food and home baked goods. So I’ve gained all the weight back from my vegan weight loss and I kinda feel like crap now. I also have a food addiction and had an eating disorder in my teens and 20s. So, I just started vegan keto, just for maybe two or three weeks to see if it makes a difference. I want to break my sugar and white carb addiction, I also want to be healthier.

  • Interesting. Eric Berg (YouTube) says that veggies shouldn’t be counted carb wise, which I appreciate. He also says that if you have digestive issues like SIBO, avoiding lots of fibre temporarily is good because fibre feeds microbes, but SIBO means there are way too many (good and bad) microbes in your small rather than large intestine (hence the bloating), so you don’t want to encourage their presence by feeding them there
    I’ve been doing vegan keto for a few weeks, and it’s definitely been helping my SIBO

  • Damn, I used to think this dude was so knowledgeable but I watched Dr. Stephen Phinney’s videos about keto before watching this and now I’m realizing that he’s a little misguided.

  • Wow how to combine 2 hypes. If you eat properly you dont need to twist your self in all kind of diets to get the right amount. Garbage in is garbage out. Even if you eat vegan it does not mean you will slim and fat. You need to adjust your intake on the needs of your body. That simple and no.. a calorie is the still the same calorie.. it is standard measure. The quality of the food eat is more important i.e. is the source from highly processed than you can bet there is too much sugar and salt in it.

  • I tried to go vegan but I put a lot of weight on because I was eating to much food because I didn’t feel full, so I want to do keto to lose about 50 pounds then I can be a veg and maintain my weight. But I don’t think I can lose weight on vegan because I’m to hungry to reduce calories��

  • Welp i definitely think i found my new diet. Lol. Im still gonna apply meat tho i still feel stronger on meat than on just plants. Any info on how to make blemishes clear up

  • This video claims that keto and vegan are opposite things that fight against each other. Well, i guess that guy confused keto with carnivore diet. You can very well be vegan and go keto at the same time. Keto and vegan are not opposite things, or enemy ideas of each other. If there are two clashing diets, they are LowCarb(including Keto) vs HighCarb(doesn’t necesserily vegan).

  • You should do a video on your shopping list and meal preps! So we see exactly how you cook everything you eat in a week! This was awesome and great job on your weight loss Lauren Jean!!!✨��

  • There are doctors who say keto diet is the best for chronical diseases like Alzheimer etc: quantisana.tv https://quantisana.ch They say animal milk is bad but nothing about plantbased. They concentrate on high fat aka coconut oil mixed with MCT and C8. Also they say sugar is bad, what’s obvious but bad are also carbs and don’t explain which carbs so what’s with full grain products, fruits and veg. What do you say about this?!

  • Great video! Question, I finally understand net carbs but 17:40 sugars? Is there a total gram per day like net carbs I.e being 20 or below? I’m getting prepped to start Sunday ���� you see this @laurenjean

  • I’ve been doing Ketogenic vegan for 3months and it’s the best decision I’ve ever done I was taking 6 medication for diabetes high blood pressure and high cholesterol and A1C was 9 now A1C is under 6 and my doctor did labs and everything is normal and has taken me off of all medications I’m so glad I did keto Vegan plus I’ve lost 25pounds and 50 more pounds to go ��

  • What always interests me the most about those keto diets or intermittent fasting diets are claims about this mental clarity and heightened cognitive functions. Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find any reliable source of information to verify such claims or show the science behind them. Maybe that would be a good idea for a video? Just throwing an idea; it seems like an untapped niche

  • I’ve found out that adding food such as fruit like apples & oranges to my diet promotes weight loss because they are low on the glycemic index meaning that glucose is released into the cells of the body more slowly.

    What I mean is it’s better than eating say a lot of candy,sweet soft drink, doughnuts, etc which is high on the glycemic index meaning that you only feel full & energetic in the short term.

    Then in the long term,you hit that low then get a sugar craving,your body needs to work out what to do with the sudden hit of glucose, the liver needs to convert it into glycogen meaning it gets stored on the body as fat.

    Eating fruit which is low on the glycemic index & contains pectin has promoted a feeling of fullness for longer & has regulated the release of glucose into the body,that is also due to the fibre content in a lot of the fruit,bread & cereal that I eat.

    So,I haven’t focussed on cutting out just carbohydrates in the body,rather to eat more complex carbohydrates.

    I have lost 22 kilograms in the last month & I feel much more energetic.

  • I tried to go vegan but I put a lot of weight on because I was eating to much food because I didn’t feel full, so I want to do keto to lose about 50 pounds then I can be a veg and maintain my weight. But I don’t think I can lose weight on vegan because I’m to hungry to reduce calories��

  • Normal keto raises LDL.. so what!. no prove has been shown that is the reason for heart disease. Your referring to the old school medical findings that have been proven inconclusive for many years.. Stop supporting the food industry.. its just as support the meat industry. Learn ya shit mate

  • Thanks for sharing, Great info!��…I uploaded a video about how I lost 50 lbs! if you find the time, go check out the video. I share exactly how I lost the weight ��:)

  • I’m insulin resistance and I have PCOS mostly shitty-junk food vegetarian diet lead me there. I tried vege-keto (or more precise highly-fat diet) and it really made the difference in my health and the way I feel. Gonna keep up with it altough carbs cravings sometimes are tough haha

  • Awesome video, thank you! You are correct there aren’t a lot of videos out here with all the information you provided �� I have added this video to my saved videos. I am already doing IF 16/8 and I am already vegan beig doing it for like 4 months now. I ordered the keto strips and I want to try to get into ketosis I want to meet my weightloss goals by January. Do you have any thoughts on this keto Max by pruvit that everyone is trying?

  • Confirmation bias much? At least the Lipid Journal study talked about ketosis, so (unwittingly?) incorporated carbohydrates’ impact on grelin and leptin, controlling hunger. The first study was only two weeks, and pretty flawed. But, YOU (whenever anyone has to claim they aren’t something, like biased, they usually are) talk about cholesterol and saturated fat being bad. Even the AHA doesn’t say cholesterol is bad anymore; that flawed theory has been disproven via decades of failed medical guidance AND more robust scientific studies. Instead of taking glee in bashing innovation, why not work on learning why keto has been such a miricle for so many and why “just eat healthy foods” has failed leading to our current health epidemic? Do a review of Dave Feldman’s research, then we’ll see your mental chops.

  • It’s funny but a bit scary too, to read some studies and see with your own eyes they don’t apply to you. Seems like yet has to be done a lot of research on genetic variety of people and how various diets may affects individuals depending of their genetic code. Anyway: I gained muscles on keto (vegetarian with ocasional meat, mostly fish) while losing most of belly fat. And I have to mention that my exercises has been limited because I felt exhausted if exercise every day. I still cannot wonder enough how different everyone is… ��

  • Been on Cronometer for a few months. I myself thrive best on at least 30% fat macros, 12 to 20% protein macros, and 30% to 50% carbs macros.

  • if you add eggs & dairy you have a TON of protein options.

    With dairy you can get high-fat greek yogurts, or cheeses like Paneer, Bleu, Feta, and Hallumi are all awesome.

  • I vote to Veto your Kegan diet 😉 ok, semi cool video, I tried keto a few years ago ‘cos I LOVE animal fat, it tastes Sooooo good… only I didn’t love it THAT much! I lost a pile of weight, I guess ‘cos I was in calorie deficit ‘cos I just couldn’t face that much fat… So it did me a favour I needed to lose a few kilos and I did. Now I’m doing the whole food plant based thing with all “fast” carbs excluded why? Partly environmental (we have a serioiusly bad climate situation coming at us if I’m lucky I’ll die before the proverbial hits, but seriously it’s not a good future the way we’re going) and partly health wise I just don’t really eat a wide enough range and quantity of vege if I eat meat and dairy…. Soooo I’ve quit meat and dairy when I cook for myself ummm a wee bit of dairy snuck back in when I got sick and in lockdown it’s been so darn hard to shop however I’m not dictating my diet when I eat round with friends (sadly deep lack of that in lockdown) ‘cos first it’s kind or rude and second I confess I do like meat, fish and dairy…. just when the carrying capacity of the planet for humans and a nice high standard of living is probably closer to 2billion than 8 billion, frankly I gotta change my diet…

  • Thanks, although we need to be accurate most keto followers are not high protein, but other than that love the interview, thanks again

  • Plant based diet only works if you eliminate oils and refined sugar. That means no alternative vegan products which are loaded with processed seed oils and sugar. Even then, insulin spikes are common place on carb-centered diets if you’re not careful. Likewise with keto, you can’t overdo fats.

  • plant protein sources low in carbs

    1. Hemp seeds
    2. Organic extra firm Tofu
    3 Chia Seeds
    4. Seitan
    5. Almond & peanut butter without sugar.
    6. Almonds.
    7. Tempeh
    8. Spinach
    9. Broccoli
    10. Kale.
    11. Low carb organic vegan protein powder.
    12. Pumpkin Seeds.
    13. chick peas.

    You can have these protein sources with many low carbs foods like walnuts, macademia nuts, many vegetables, avocados, blueberries, strawberries, some dark chocolate bars. This is the only ethical way to do a keto diet. Try it out.

  • Wow what a plumper before! After no body shame I need to put my dog on that diet. I also need to stop kicking my dog. Animals are people too and need a vote

  • great video thomas  probably the best of all i’ve watched of yours  more vegan vids pleaaaaase! been looking at your super green detox product too, is it vegan and gluten free?

  • Sure wish you’d do a video on some of the claims by the YouTube keto doctor Ken Berry. It’s unfortunate but some family and friends of mine have fallen hard for anything and everything he says.

  • It’s the high carbs high fat combination that does damage.
    Although keto is much healthier than vegan, vegan can be sustainable. For about less than a decade, then you go apeshit and talk about giving rights to cows.
    Vegan doesn’t cure diabetes type-2, and cure all sorts of inflammation, or is a treatment for cancer.
    But wait, what other diet would that be? Hmm… I’m thinking about it…. wondering… hmmm who knows?:d

  • We must admit. there are a lot more polyphenols and antioxidants as well as potassium and magnesium which are already very low in most diets. and are absolutly essential for metabolism and muscle and heart health. in a vegan diet since a lot more fruits are accepted. That by far is better for long term anti aging diet. thats my only argument with the keto versus vegan diet.

  • 2:33 “A ketogenic diet is often used for children with epilepsy…”

    Not it isn’t. A ketogenic diet is a last resort intervention in children with epilepsy who are having trouble with standard medical interventions.

  • I’d like to see a debate on this topic with Dr. Joel Kahn vs. Dr. Eric Berg. Dr. Berg has convincing arguments for the weight loss portion of the keto diet but not for the health/longevity arguments like Dr. Kahn has against it.

  • Ok so I have a question!! It seems that the vegan ketogenic diet relies pretty heavily on natural sources of plant fats, particularly, nuts. However, I understand that nuts contain high levels of phytic acid, which impair mineral absorption and can lead to deficiencies. Usually this is fine cause most people only eat a handful or so of nuts, but when you make your diet 80% fat, you will be intaking a significant amount of phytic acid. What do?

  • So concretely we can eat tempeh, nuts, greens, healthy oil, and seeds. You surely going gonna loose weight, but how do make a meals interesting with so few options?

  • How much weight should be put on a study like the first cited that has a relatively small sample size and has yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal? I’m genuinely curious and not meaning to be combative. It otherwise looks strong to me (inpatient, similar age and bmi of subjects, very low p-value), albeit in my very limited knowledge of the subject.

  • Hey girl! Really love this video, very helpful ☺️ I am currently a pescatarian trying to transition to vegan but I don’t do well with a lot of carbs. Just wanted to let you know that glycogen is actually the term for glucose storage in our muscle cells. So when we eat glucose that preferentially is used as fuel, then we deplete our glucose storage, or glycogen, then we break down fats into fatty acids and a glycerol. I’m currently a senior in college taking anatomy and physiology so I thought I would share ��.

  • almost all the world is brainwashed like the majority of society…Why can’t a human eat meat raw naturally like the rest of canivors its quite obvious that humans are not designed to eat meat..but humans can eat fruit and veg raw..There’s this common misconception of people believing in these myths that still go on for decades sadly..Brb most of this world is corrupted with the wrong knowledgeable..It’s like giving a monkey raw meat it can’t eat it in the first place so why cook it�� Cant wait until the next genius proves most of this undeveloped industry the right ways to a more civilised human diversity of success instead of greed stupidity selfishness unhumanist and religion and mythology..Humas are naturally nonreligious but become tempted to believe in fake stories that could be written by anyone…All I’m going to say is that humans are naturally herbivorous..��

  • I am always amazed to see the kind of doctors that they get on the show. These guys are probably some of the best guys in their field bar none. If you do a little research on this guy man does he have a lot of credentials what a boss I can’t believe that they have these guys doing YouTube videos it’s crazy and very educational. Keep up the fantastic videos plant based news!

  • Thanks for the great and science based info. Helps to cut trough the Jungle of opinions and religion like statements.
    Helps me also to go more and more towards healthy food. One step at a time

  • Did I hear Dr. Kahn recommended olive oil to up the fat? I understand all oils should be minimised because of their effect on the vascular system.

  • It’s hard to eat an abundance of unprocessed plant foods if you’re loading up on animal corpses and and secretions. One displaces the other. One promotes cancer, the other fights it. I think it’s pretty clear what works better.

  • Could you please explain in more detail why there is a difference between the consumption of sugar and complex carbs? For example the enzyme amylase breaks down complex carbs. So even a complex carb is metabolized in the form of sugar, right? Is the higher amount of fiber the main reason the more complex carb is considered more healthy or is there another reason?

  • Super helpful, thank you! I’m on a vegan keto way of eating at the moment and have had such amazing results, both physically and mentally. Sharing a few vlogs about it on my channel!

  • Vegan keto works amazing for me. I do not have any issues at all. My body stays lean and I have lots of energy. But later down the road I will alternate higher carbs back into my lifestyle.

  • Have you ever noticed that the vegan “experts” scientific commentary is always brief, emotional and lacking in meatiness (sorry couldn’t help myself.) What I mean is there’s usually no real substance to their arguments and the statements they make tend to be “self-evident truths” for which no data needs to be provided. Vegans.. with all due respect go listen to the experts on the other side of this debate like I listen to your “experts” and tell me if there’s no truth to what I’m saying.

  • I think if you are going keto it should be for a specific purpose, like you want to lose weight or fight off cancer etc… it’s not an easy diet to live on permanently especially if you’re doing it vegan it’s very limiting.

    On a vegan keto diet the only protein you can really eat is going to be soy (tofu, soy milk, tempeh), seitan, nuts, and seeds (hemp, pumpkin etc…) since these are low carb. Pretty much ALL legumes are high in carbs besides soy.

    Many meat analogues like tofurky, beyond meat, impossible burger, sweet earth, field roast, quorn etc… are also low carb and keto friendly.

  • Thomas, thank you so much for the Keto Vegan explanation!! I do find it difficult to stay under 35g of Carbs, but when I do go over 35g, I will Intermittent Fast, usually 24 hrs or OMAD. I’m seeing success, and feel amazing and I’m 63 years old. Vegetarian for 30 years and Vegan for 5. I’ve always carried too much weight, but have been remarkably healthy compared to my friends. I still take no meds, my vitals are good, but I want to be lean and fit. I’m @ 239 lbs from 289lbs.. goal of 199 lbs @ 6’2″.

    If there is a method of Keto/Intermittent Fasting, I’d love to see a vid on that.

    Thank you, Thank You, Thank You for all the great info.

  • I lost 40 lbs doing a low carb/keto diet. It changed my life. I’ve been maintaining doing more of a paleo diet. My diet is still relatively low carb compared to most, but I don’t count my macros anymore. I just make good food choices and avoid bad ones. This video is great. The whole “which diet is better” feud is very stupid. Do what is sustainable for you over the long haul. Stop being pushy about your diet. Although I have to say vegans are much more guilty of doing this. ��

  • Mic, I’m glad you did this video despite your dislike of keto. I’ve been doing keto for 9 months now since I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The first 3 months was the standard meat-based keto. I lost weight doing it, but all the saturated fat did not sit well with me. So, after exhaustive research, I landed on a vegan keto diet. It consists mainly of tempeh, vegies, greens, nuts, seeds, olives, and avocados. I use very little oil and the little I do use is avocado or olive based. I also make sure to get loads of nitrates from fist sized helpings of cooked arugula as well big green smoothies. My weight loss on vegan-keto has not slowed one bit.

    Now for someone like me, who started this journey at over 400lbs, I do one meal a day with alternate day fasting. For people doing maintenance then I suggest doing one meal a day. The reason is that vegan keto usually has more carbs than normal keto. In a regular day I have 100 to 130 carbs. But most of those carbs are real fiber (not the fake fiber in those keto breads). The net carbs land around 30 to 50, which is considered excess in keto. But when following a one meal a day plan, the keto diet keeps my cravings away, the high fiber keeps me full, and the long time between meals gives my body a chance to burn those carbs and get back to making ketones. Eating such a meal does not kick me out of ketosis and when paired with an alternate day fasting strategy it yields great fat burning results.

  • vegan keto is the only thing thats ever made maintaining my weight effortless. i always pile on the pounds eating carbs and am consistently hungry (aka HANGRY). blood work is perfect after a year vegan keto.

  • I’ve had many debates with people about the Keto diet, and what I notice is that the diet is nearly always defended on an emotional basis. Whenever I bring up scientific facts people just pretend like I haven’t given any other reasons than my own opinions. It’s really quite sad and discouraging. I won’t stop defending a vegan diet, no matter how biased and rude people are.

  • As always, thanks for keeping it real and not driving a single agenda. Also, I think that the out takes were great. I wouldn’t mind more laughs.

  • i tried (@t they let you customize your own keto diet. I tried it for about 3 months and it helped me lose 63 pounds. I think everyone should give keto a try tbh

  • A “leading cardiologist.” What is that, exactly? Always fascinates me how these adjectives are used.

    In fact, the science behind a well-formulated ketogenic diet is quite solid and growing every day. You can keep the epidemiological studies the their invalid conclusions all day. I will go with the basic science and well-controlled clinical interventional studies that demonstrate pretty clearly that a low carb high fat (moderate protein 15-20%) diet lowers cardiac risk markers (serum glucose, Hgb A1c, triglycerides, Lp(a), LDL particle number, and increases HDL and metabolic rate. Ketones downregulate histone deacetylasethereby decreasing the cancer risk.

    The low carb high fat diet is the diet of the future. It will increasingly become the key to longevity. And we will be laughing at these fearnmongers and their hysteria.

    People in America have lowered their fat intake and increased their carbohydrate intake since 1980 when the dietary guidelines were published. And what has happened. Ummthe obesity epidemic and the plague of type II diabetes.

    Eating carbs increases serum saturated fatty acid levels. In the setting of a low-carb diet, a meal high in fat does not increase serum fatty acids, including saturated fatty acids. You guys are missing a significant disconnect between dietary saturated fat and serum saturated fat.

  • I’d like to point out that you failed to define what a “standard keto diet” is. Based on what you shared, it is all meat, dairy, and saturated fat. Butter and bacon. Which is obviously false, albeit very hyped. Anyone who can afford it at least, would have a balance of plant based and animal based sources of protein and fat, not one or the other. And so if that is what is being compared in all of these studies, I think it’s fair to say that unfairly lumps all keto into the same category.

    Besides, in my look into the research, “very low carb” has had a murky definition. A lot of these types of studies that “debunk” keto have way too much carbs in the first place. So it’s not even keto. And therefore, their results cannot conclude anything about keto.

    I’d also like to point out that completely nut based fat is not only prohibitively expensive but typically those higher fat nuts like macadamia come from tropical areas. They’re native to Australia but mostly produced in Hawaii and South Africa. So unless you live in those places, you are increasing your carbon footprint.

    I am keto and a scientist myself. So I do my own research in the literature. In my opinion, a keto diet that relies heavily (but not solely) on plants is a good balanced option. Not just nutritionally, but environmentally. I try to make about half of my meals vegetarian or vegan keto, which helps offset my carbon footprint.

    As much as the ethics and environmental impacts of veganism resonate with me, I don’t think evolutionary biology is irrelevant. Vegans struggle to maintain proper vitamin and mineral levels without supplements and we evolved to be omnivores. If you can’t maintain that with whole foods reliably, it seems like an unnatural way to live. Again, in my opinion. But still science based.

    This comment is intended for discussion, not trying to be argumentative. I think it’s helpful for someone like me (keto first, vegan second) to see your perspective (vegan first, maybe keto second in this video) and vice versa. There are a lot of studies out there which make claims that are not what they seem until you read the fine print details. So it’s good to do a check on each other. Cheers!

  • less than 3 minutes in, he was already flat out lying. Thousands of years, primal cultures survived, WITHOUT diabetes, heart attack etc… it wasn’t until refined sugars. flours etc came along that they became obese and sick… in fact, the factory farms vegans hate exist only because of monoculture farming which is destroying the earth faster than anything else. A purely raw vegan diet may be great, but not sustainable in most of the world where grasses/grains and grazing animals take up the bulk of it… either grow grains to eat or hunt/kill the animals but avocados, cocnuts, dates. bananas etc isn’t going to grow in most places… face it, the world is diverse, climates are diverse and our diets are too… not everyone should support importing tropical fruits, nor should everyone consume grains/meat… balance is sorely lacking today.

  • My sister using Red tea. She is always thinking and wanting to loose weight. The great part is she achieved it by drinking this tea.

    Now,
    she already recommending to her friends to try this out. you can try this tea couse its really good for weight loss.

    for more about red tea pls g o ( w w w.redteaidea.gq ) remove the space before.gq for access

  • What makes a “keto” diet keto? Technically speaking, doesn’t one have to measure to be sure you are in a state of ketosis? And, if this is so, is there anything unhealthy about remaining in a state of ketosis for prolonged periods of time? thx

  • Reduced insulin resistance is a pro you didn’t mention. Also it’s not just Alzheimers, the beta-hydroxybutyrate molecules from being in ketosis cross the blood-brain barrier and would be beneficial to neurodegenerative diseases in general, and most people on it report greater mental clarity. Maybe its not a problem if you’re already vegan, but Keto also generally lowers triglyceride levels and raises HDL. Finally, for many it lowers blood pressure.

  • INCREDIBLE! and very funny! Loved it and being someone who has gone on both diets, only to go back to my junk food way of eating, and now faced with high cholesterol and not feeling to well. I am looking for a side to choose! Thanks, you’ve confirmed what I suspected. Either works, just eliminate the crap foods in either camp! Thanks.

  • Please read this and consider a video of it

  • He didn’t once mention that low carb/high fat vegan diets can and often do use oil(s)…. which as we all know… is the vegan killer.

  • Welp i definitely think i found my new diet. Lol. Im still gonna apply meat tho i still feel stronger on meat than on just plants. Any info on how to make blemishes clear up

  • Protien is not the same though. I get one shake with a half scoop of protien and one ounce of tempeh at lunch, if I have more than that I go over in carbs. It is a no carn prot powder but I’m have a ton of spinach and kale so that hurts me but you need that right? Idk. It’s tough, I want 2 more ounces of tempeh or tofu but I can’t

  • I was doing vegan keto and intermittent fasting and felt great. I drifted back to high carb vegan diet, gained weight and felt awful. I am going back to Vegan Keto!

  • But why do you focus so much on fat intake as long as it’s good fats. I’m thinking as long as you keep the carbs down and low protein the fats come from your body not the plate. Of course your gonna eat good fats but as far as concentrating on eating a lot of good fats just make sure everyday you take in 5% carbs and 10% protein. The fats will burn from your body fats you already have and whatever fats you eat. Another words you dont have to eat 85% fats from the calories you eat that day. If that’s what happens that’s fine but it’s not necessary. If 50% of your calories came from fat that day you are body will still burn 85% fat 10% protein and 5% carbs. I think that’s right. Lol. What do you think. Does that sound right?

  • My fiance and I have been WFPB for almost a year now. We both lost a ton of fat and put on muscle at the gym, but he wanted to lost a few more pounds. He tried Keto WFPB, no oil (we rarely use it anyway) for a week. For just him on the meal plan, it cost $100 and he lost about 5 lbs, most likely water weight since we usually eat about 70% carbs. He did love how he felt, said he felt less hunger/munchies, but it just isn’t economical. I currently work on a cardiac floor, but not a nurse yet, so I guess my opinion doesn’t matter much, but I don’t believe that tricking your body into thinking it’s starving or eating or eating so much fat is a good long-term idea.

  • My conclusion is eat REAL LEAST PROCESSED FOODS, Vegetables, Fruits, legumes, nuts and seed and if you must a small amount of meat.
    I think it’s as simple as that…..good health to you all.

  • I would love it if you could post the links to the research that you reference within the description box. This way, we would be empowered to read the same research. For the research where we can read the title, we can obviously google those. But I’m specifically interested in reading the meta-analysis that you were first discussing.

  • I have done both vegan and plant based Keto and now I am switching back to grass fed animal protein in moderation and high in vegetables Keto. Sorry…but my body feels and beginning to see more results strength wise and I am getting leaner with more energy. I am not a sheep. I am not blinded by the nonsense people try to say what is best for my body. People stay awake and do what is best for your body. EXPERIMENT with your food intake and let YOUR body tell you what is best for you. All these organizations in any field always have hidden agendas. The macros that works best for me is…
    70% or higher Fats
    25% or lower Pro
    5% or lower in Carbs.
    The body is the TRUE expert.

  • I know this is over a year later but can someone do a keto diet WITHOUT losing weight?  How do you get enough calories without overloading on fats, and can it be done with lots of fruits (still eliminating grains)?  Would eating lots of grapes and apples along with good fats still reap the brain benefits of keto?

  • Hey there! This was pretty cool. I suggest that you check Dr. Will Cole, he wrote a book exactly about this amazing combo. Is called KETO-TARIAN.

  • Why can’t people just agree that people are different and that different diets can be beneficial to specific individual? I’ve been absolutely thriving on keto for 3 years now and it completely changed my life. However I’m not going to sit here and bash someone for eating a vegan diet if it works for them because we are all different..

  • Excellent video! Thank you. I am vegan almost…. still eat my organically fed truly free range/pasture very happy chicken eggs… albeit the hens do SCREECH with every birth of an egg, which is man’s genetic modifying to make chickens unnaturally lay daily eggs. Sadly, it is what it is now… one day, I’ll eliminate even eggs. Just my 2 cents worth…I appreciate your video information Captain!

  • ….. so why the hell would someone switch to a plant based diet when there are only 2 examples of vegan diets and having the longest life….. especially when the okinowa one isn’t truthful as there are many there that ate minimal meat before. And the one that the is the 7th day whatever they are…. that’s to small off a group. Show me 3rd generation vegans and look at their health… and I talking true 3rd generations. Not a single one as far as I am aware of. Just because this doctor hasn’t searched and done the research on the animal based products….. and why would he, is a plant based doctor. Everyone has bias

  • Keto flu is actually a result of electrolyte depletion. Glycogen stores a lot of water so when you drain your glycogen, you flush out a lot of water and with it goes your electrolytes. You become dehydrated. Just make sure you keep up your electrolytes in the beginning (Hymalayan pink salt is awesome) and you will be fine.
