At McDonald’s, all you’d need to reach 1,500 calories in one meal is a Big Mac, large fries, and a McFlurry. At the start of the diet, you’re supposed to restrict yourself to just 1,000 calories a day for three days straight. On days four through seven, you can eat 1,500 calories. The calorie-restrictive nature of the diet means it’s likely not sustainable long term for weight loss, and the short list of foods it provides could be limiting nutrient. If you want to lose weight, you have to create a calorie deficit, and that’s where this week-long, 1,500-calorie meal plan can come in handy.While the exact number of calories you need to eat to.

According to the survey, during their Thanksgiving dinner most Americans expect to consume just 1,780 calories and more than 75 percent of survey respondents expect to stay below 2,000 calories.

  • Thank you for speaking the truth and delivering a common SENSE approach to better health and longevity. Some people are just not aware, this helps alot to clarify the issue of diet.��

  • Have been losing weight counting calories (1500) and walking 1-2miles daily. Losing a lb or 2 a week. Not major but deffo working. Although I’m not huge and only looking to lose another stone or 2. 1500 calories is actually a lot of food if you eat clean.

  • Extremely late to the party but if opening a bakery really is a dream of yours you can never get discouraged. Baking is an uphill battle and you can only kinda get yourself to the point where you want to be by trying and failing over and over again until you get it right.

    In my own experience baking is much much more difficult and/or frustrating than cooking because most of the time baking demands more careful technique/measurements and costs way more time.

    Dude you love donuts, don’t give up! There’s a shit ton of great info about this stuff on the internet or in books that really go into the science of baking. It’ll take time and practice but I promise you it’ll be worth it.

  • I’m less concerned about the calories than what you’re putting inside of your body; an occasional fast food meal won’t affect shit, but if you’re eating this a couple times a week? Ehh. It should be a treat or something reserved for a long day.

  • Of a truth there is no known pharmaceutical cure for Diabetes, but the good news is ‘Diabetes is cured naturally by herbal medicine and with the right herbal proportion.
    Doctors told my husband no cure, and still advised him not to research that he won’t succeed and never offer him a solution. Thanks to the media and internet where I found Dr Utu @ [email protected] gmail.com who is an African Roots and Herbal practitioner. I saw testimonials and we decided to give it a trial and thank God today my husband is Diabetes-free and he had said bye to pharmaceutical drugs for good.

  • I find it interesting that my Ghrelin (hunger level) is lower during a 3 day fast than how I feel when I am using OMAD. You would think that not eating for 3 days would make your hunger unbearable.

  • You made me cry laughing so much in a good way… that is… you are very entertaining with your well placed jokes…. ���������������� keep up the good work Will….��you tickled me with this vid!! Remember Will “practice makes batter I MEAN BETTER”��

  • Oh my… Chocolate has always been my down fall! This information is very informative and I will implement this in my daily life. #lifestylechanges

  • I have type 2 diabetes and tried the keto diet. I, too, found it overly complicated and trying to keep the carb within a range. I found it far easier to go carnivore. It’s simple. I just eat fat and meat, no plants. So far, my blood sugar is under control, 98 today. I’ve also done a dry fast transitioning to a wet fast. I’m going to keep going on the diet.

  • An article in Archiv Fur Kriminologie states the body can survive for 8 to 21 days without food and water and up to two months if there’s access to an adequate water intake.

  • Tjo Rez, om man köper en sån hära instruktion grej från dig för att gå ner i vikt så kan man göra det lång distans? elr kmr du göra en gym instruktion där du berättar vad jag ska göra o äta elr?

  • Boy is she distracting. Have some respect while Dr Fung is responding to a question & stand politely instead of dancing around. Being on your phone & acting out to someone INBTHE audience. Be professional please

  • I just saw that Chef AJ’s book The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss is less than $10 for the Kindle edition! 117 recipes for that price would be SO worth it! I’m going to buy it today! ♥️

  • This probably might work for healthy people with no underlying conditions. You might need to watch it out if epileptic. Skipping meals can trigger seizures.

  • What about weight fluctuations?? I’ve been eating 1500 calories at 250 pounds trying to lose weight. It’s been a week and the scale isn’t going down. It fluctuates by like 2-3 pounds. I don’t get it

  • Come to Britain in the winter months and ask most pensioners why they can`t eat and heat their homes at the same time. Then you`ll know how easy it is to lose weight. And that`s not by fasting, its every day.

  • As an avid, semi-pro(I like to think) baker….I said “Oh honey…nooooo” so many times during this video ������
    Baking is hella hard and unforgiving.
    I want to make a video showing you how to do it, because I want you to fulfill your dream and open that TennyHoles donut shop one day.

    You can do it, just keep practicing.

    For like 5 years
    Maybe 10….
    (Maybe even 20, I don’t know your learning capacity)

  • In Uni we just did a lab where we had to measure one meal that we’ve eaten and compared it to DV%, I choose a single Wendy’s baconator, large fry, large Coke, and small frosty. The daily recommended sugar was 50gs, I ate 159gs. The Prof. And literally my lab mates were worried for my health. They literally had to dump a third of the bag of sugar for me. One lab mate whispered I don’t think we’ll have enough sugar for every group, and all others swore off Wendy’s.

  • I think what people often get confused is that calorie deficit is different for everyone, because your body naturally burns off a certain amount of calories this can be different for each person. 1500 calories is based off the average person, but the problem is that the average person doesn’t really exist an average is just a rough estimate it’s not accurate. What i’ve learned is that my body naturally can burn off about 800-1000 calories without working out, therefor that is daily calorie intake and resting metabolic rate. If I was to go into calorie deficit i’d have to eat less that 800 calories to lose the weight. Something important to consider is that calories do not equal quantity, if you’re eating a larger quantity of food with lower calories you will still gain weight despite being in calorie deficit. That’s why calories are literally useless and I stopped counting calories a long time ago, start looking at the quantity of food you’re consuming instead. Less food equals less weight gain, that is common sense but not many people actually do this instead they just go based off calories. Food with higher calories means you need to eat less food in order to get your daily calorie intake, so one secret i’ve had to losing weight is actually by eating food with higher calories you’re consuming less quantity of food. If you eat lower calorie foods you’d need to consume a larger quantity

  • I want lose 20 kg…but how many days fast in week…&how many times takes to lose weight? please tell sir…I’m going long walk but I can’t lose weight

  • Does Custokebon Secrets really help to lost crazy amounts of fat? We have learn numerous good stuff about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • How the heck does Chipotle have so many calories in just 2 food items. I get that its a burrito but its not that big and neither is Guac

  • I was diagnosed withType 2 diabetes four weeks ago. My doctor asked if I wanted to be precribed statins. I’m 63 years old and I also have high blood pressure. I take Amlodipine and Ramapril. I said to my doctor I would try useing changing my diet for 3 months before adding another drug.
    I studied a lot of the Peer reviewed documents relating to my high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes. When I was younger I was not overweight. I had a flat belly and used to do what here is described as intermittent fasting. I never ate breakfast and regularly missed lunch. I thought I would try this regime and measure my blood pressure, blood sugar levels and weight. I changed my diet, reduced carbohydrates and salt, but have only increased my execise minutely. No more processed food and only food cooked by me.
    At first my weight did not reduce.
    In the second week I have lost 5 pounds.
    My Systolic blood pressure has reduced from around 145mmHg to around 135mmHg.
    My Diastolic blood pressure has reduced from around 89mmHg to around 81mmHg.
    My resting heart rate has reduced.
    I have only had 2 reading of blood sugar level above 7.5 mmols/L since starting the regime. Both these readings were when I ate food made by someone else.
    The rest have been between 4.8 and 6.7 mmols/L
    The key changes have happened when I started doing intermitent fasting and eating in the way I did when I was younger.
    Dr Jason Fung definitely pointed out something that works for me and I hope others try it and measure their results before adding drugs to their intake.

  • Come to Britain in the winter months and ask most pensioners why they can`t eat and heat their homes at the same time. Then you`ll know how easy it is to lose weight. And that`s not by fasting, its every day.

  • This video changed my life. Believe this man n u won’t regret it. Try it. I’ve lost some good weight, I look younger, I just look great. Sure I do some exercises alongside the fasting. I do mostly 20hr fast, almost everyday.

  • Chef AJ is so amazing and passionate about helping us understand weight loss. I really enjoy making recipes from her cookbook. Thank you for all teachings.

  • Hey Rez, I am doing intermittent fasting and doing barbell complexes twice a week, plus another day of HIIT. Have you tried barbell complexes before? If yes, which results have you got?

  • Bästa! Bror skulle du kunna gör typ en serie, där du recordar din transformation. Hur du bemöter dagliga problem och hinder, och hur du gör det roligt samtidigt ����.

  • It would have been better if I seen this unique guide a couple of years back. For 15 days of making use of the weights, I lose 12 pounds There is still need of exercises even only a couple of times weekly and also the food to consume should be best. The results presented to me is astounding. Undoubtedly, this is highly recommended and I do hope this would give good results to you too since it did to me. Find a right guide is not easy, you can research by Google. Program’s name is Peyton Huno†az
    good luck

  • I’ve been overweight for decades. Excessive excersice, low cal, low fat did nothing. I’d given up. I’d accepted my health would further deteriorate, I would die early of some disease, and there was nothing I could do about it.Then 10 months ago I drummed enough courage to try keto. I was eating eggs for breakfast and not eating until late afternoon and having a small meal, wasn’t I already almost doing it anyway? I’ve since progressed to IF, and longer and longer fastsfinishing a 65 hour one just this week ( much to the dismay and concern of the ignorant around me). I’m 57 and have lost 52 pounds so far. I’m no longer diabetic (yay me), off several medications, and my blood work is good. I’m halfway to where I need to be but I’ll get there. Thankyou!! To people like Dr Fung and others, you’re literally saving lives.

  • This doctor didn’t start this…but he’s credited for being the most recent professional voice who speaks about it. He doesn’t deserve a NOBEL….maybe YouTube does for giving him the ability to be heard and spread the word through a vehicle like social media.

  • How can he really avoid the topic of calories? Sure, a slimmer person (under 180) will get stuffed long before, say, 1500 calories within a small window and still be at a deficit. And the super obese can eat a lot while still being in a deficit. Us middle fats (200-300) can easily exceed our calorie burn from eating within a small window. No I won’t necessarily feel full actually. I have enough sense to still count my calories, but what if there are people eating their butts off for their OMAD or small eating window? At some point, physics wins and these people won’t lose weight. I wish there was a LITTLE more to say about food/calories.

  • I do like pretty much all of your content if not all of it. and i even liked this. but knowing a thing or two about cooking/baking (and lasting only thirty seconds lol), I saw some issues. I dont know what recipe you used, but you probably could’ve used a much simpler, easy to understand one (such as binging with babish’s). The most fatal mistake was adding the vanilla to the yeast mixture. vanilla has alcohol, which, in concentration (such as in vanilla/almond extract or in liquors/high spirits) can kill off yeast. thus your yeast probably died as a result of you adding it to the blooming yeast mixture. which is the main reason the dough didn’t rise (presumably). that recipe also did not seem to use enough liquid (probably another 1/4-1/2c of milk, water, etc if i had to guess). Thus the dense ball of dough as opposed to nice airy fluffy one, which was compounded by the vanilla murdered yeast. Also, fridging yeast doughs for thirty, forty mins… or even like 3 hours is rather pointless for proofing, because cold impedes that process (though long proofs in the fridge enhance yeast doughs usually (like 8hrs+)). Just some tips for baking. but all n all your content is great and i enjoy watching all of it pretty much lol. sorry for the lengthy critique but i just saw the problems and wanted to address them. you keep on keepin on with the content cuz its great and entertaining. gg

  • I want to show my thanks and gratitude to dr femilayo who cured me of herpes, after five years of suffering, all my hope was lost, i never knew there is a herbal cure for herpes.. contact him today and get your cure pamanently…. he also have a herbs for curing hepes1,herpes2, tuberculosis,skin disease, sexually transmitted diseases, diabetes and many more…..you can reach hom on his gmail address @[email protected] gmail.com

  • I ate one avocado the other night and the next day I had two huge tender pimples on my forehead which I never as a 63 year old woman get! It a sure bet when I eat overt fats I will break out

  • So like if you go to a fast food place in middle of the day or evening. All those calories oh my lol and that’s not even including breakfast/lunch or midnight snack.

  • Thats the same thing im doing, eating 1200-1500 plus kickboxing. I went from 255 to 209 in 5 months, still going down to 170. (6’2 )

  • What about refeeding syndrome that can kill you? I would like to try this as a type II diabetic, but this is dangerous if not done correctly. What tests do I have to do before attempting this?

  • I ate one avocado the other night and the next day I had two huge tender pimples on my forehead which I never as a 63 year old woman get! It a sure bet when I eat overt fats I will break out

  • Have been losing weight counting calories (1500) and walking 1-2miles daily. Losing a lb or 2 a week. Not major but deffo working. Although I’m not huge and only looking to lose another stone or 2. 1500 calories is actually a lot of food if you eat clean.

  • this guy changed my lifestyle, i am 52 years old being fallowing him for last 4 months resulted on weight loss, better sleeping, way more energy, less stress. doing 16/8 and has becoming kind of habit. i reduce refined food and seeds oil in combination with fasting.

  • Dr Fung, if a person has cancer what fasting protocol should they use, to reverse the cancer, and is there research or history to support this?

  • Thank you so much for sharing this video! I recently started IF and have had great results in a week better than any diet I’ve tried and there’s been several. This video gave me so much clarity on questions I had. Thanks again ‼️
