How Many Grams of Fat Should You Eat Per Day?

Video taken from the channel: Healthline


Here are a few examples of suggested daily fat ranges for a Mediterranean diet, based on different calorie goals: 1,500 calories: About 58–67 grams of fat per day. 2,000 calories: About 78. However, it’s not always clear what it actually looks like to eat a Mediterranean diet on a day-to-day basis. I know there’s lots of olive oil involved, some wine, and definitely some salmon.

On the Mediterranean diet, about 30-40 percent of your calories come from fat, including olive oil and other sources like fatty fish, nuts, seeds, and avocado, to name a few. The following table gives you an example of how many fat grams you should eat daily, based on the total number of calories you consume per day. Eating fat is part of a balanced, healthy diet. But how much you need in your diet depends entirely on your body and your goals. Here’s some information to help you easily measure 20 grams of fat without a scale!

Cashews. Per 1/4 cup 314 calories 17.1 g carbs 25 g fat 10.3 g protein. If you get tired of almonds, cashews are a great.

Total: 86 grams of protein! High Protein Vegan Meal Plan. Breakfast. This Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Smoothie from Hey Nutrition Lady gets your day going with 19 grams of plant-based protein. Snack.

Grab a one-ounce serving of almonds for 6 grams of protein. Lunch. Kung Pao Tempeh provides about 18 grams of protein per serving.

Serve it over. An Infographic: What Does Fat Look Like? Here are simple, printable reminders to help you remember what 30 grams of fat looks like anytime you don’t have a scale on hand. Eating Healthy Dietary Fats Does Not Cause Body Fat. For decades, people believed that dietary fat caused body fat. Diet 101: The Mediterranean Diet Salmon, olive oil, red wine and almonds top the list of preferred foods for this eating plan.

They’re all healthy picks, but read on to learn if the Mediterranean. Note: In this low-calorie diet, I have not included the amount of fat which is going to use afterward like in cooking oil and other stuff. So, don’t get confused about the number of fats in the final macro breakdown.

This diet plan is a well and balanced diet for anyone who weighs 160 pounds and for the people who are looking for a weight loss. For example, for a daily diet of 2,000 calories, no more than 120 of them should come from saturated fat, which equals about 11 to 13 grams of saturated fat per day. Foods high in saturated fats include fatty meats, full-fat dairy products, butter, palm and coconut oil, and baked goods. (Saturated fat and trans fat are the bad guys.) Mediterranean diets tend to have a moderate amount of fat, but most of it comes from healthy fats.

The carbohydrates in Mediterranean-style diets tend to come from unrefined, fiber-rich sources like whole wheat and beans.

List of related literature:

The MUFA fraction is the main component, due to the high content of oleic acid, and ranges from 5.7 to 19.4 g fatty acid 100g 1 flesh.

The Mediterranean dietary patterns in these studies tended to be moderate in total fat (25–32% of total calories), lower in saturated fat (9–10% of total calories), high in fiber (27–37 g/day), and increased in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), particularly omega3s [13].

  • i’m not trying to lose weight, but i was just ravenously hungry and been eating all day.
    what i did that was helpful in counteracting the hunger was:
    1. increasing fat intake. of course preferring the mono/poly unsaturated. but i’m still consuming saturated fats as well such as full-fat dairy, cheese, meats, yogurt, etc.
    2. try to make my carbs more complex/ and reduce their glycemic index by eating carbs with more fibers such as adding vegetables to rice, or meat to rice when possible.
    3. reduce simple carbs (the hardest one to do lol). sugar/ carb crash makes you hungry. and high sugar is inflammatory to everything in our body anyways.
    it seems to have helped me reduce hunger a lot. albeit if i work out really hard or go for a serious hike i’m completely drained. so tired. so now i learn that if i need to expend lots of energy working out or hiking, then i should add much more carbs. but for everyday sedentary existence, we don’t need so much carbs. i am not pro-keto for myself personally. so i would say generally 35% fat 25% protein and 40% carbs for a regular day. always preferring complex carbs. this should solve the hunger and make you healthier.

  • Even though I’m Keto I have a lot of weight to lose so my fat is more in the Mediterranean range. I believe that I’ll probably end up as a hybrid between the Mediterranean and the keto. because of my diabetes I doubt I’ll ever be able to eat more than 20 to 40 carbs a day anyway but to maintain 160 G of fat a day is really not sustainable for me. That is an awful lot of fat to try to stuff into yourself.

  • I eat a ketogenic lifestyle. Usually over 170 grams daily. Fat makes up 75+% of my diet. I have been eating this way for over a year. I have lost over 50 lbs. I feel great. I am over 60 and since going keto I no longer take any medications. No more insulin, no more blood pressure meds and no more cholesterol meds.

  • Pure Genious so informed & articulate loved this thank you Health is the Default integrated medicine s hour has finally come at last
    s

  • Perpendicular diets means that they intersect rather than run parallel. Mediterranean is regional & keto is macros, they INTERSECT at Mediterranean Keto. Full explanation of this in the into to Mediterranean Keto video here ���� https://youtu.be/fqbbM7kzp0U

  • ..coconut oil is tropics

    Mediterranean Diet is olive oil.

    There are so many people that cannot have anything coconut.

    avocado? not that either.

    In practically every video, it is coconut and/or avocado.

    I know I would like to hear more 0 carb and low carb food selections in products and in recipes.

    ..and yes, I went to Thrive.

    It is heavily leaning coconut and avocado.

  • I would love more recipes. I have been working on learning what my body responses too. I did IF and keto for about 8 months and watched my weight slowly come off. I had better sleep, reduced inflammation. Then COVID hit, I am a health care worker in a nursing home. The stress hit me hard and I gained all the weight back quickly. Now my body is premenopausal, stressed out, and I also had a mild case of COVID. For a month.
    I am recovering now ready to start focusing on my health again. I really want to support my immune system more. Figure out hormones and hopefully lose weight.

  • This is great, but as an Italian… you’re missing the simplicity of true Mediterranean. We wouldn’t eat any of those processed foods. Breakfast: soft-boiled eggs, whole grain bread, coffee with cream. Lunch: greens, some sardines/makerel/salmon, tomatoes, fresh herbs, olive oil, peppers, and artichokes. Snack: a few nuts, a little salami, or a little burrata on a sliced tomato. Dinner: Cooked veggies (cavoletti, broccolini, carciofi) with fresh fish grilled and a salad. red wine. done. 80% fat, all natural. delicious. usually 1,300 cals a day.

  • I am all about this diet and can’t wait to start! However I’m curious of this meal plan providedwill this be suited for a women whom is trying to lose weight as well? I fast every other day, please help me figure out how much I should be eating to be successful

  • Great video, glad to be more holistically informed. I will say to many people in the comments that WIL goes pretty in depth about meat and vegetables in many of his videos, and you can learn from his information without being keto like him. He also addresses why Japan is healthy on a high carb diet in a video.

  • Thank you for your info. How about how to start mediterranean keto, but for women. Kinda of a combo of the other women keto start video but keeping mediterranean.

  • I would like to see some more recipes pretty please and what market do you recommend I go to now with the whole pandemic we have going on now? Please and thank you

  • 21:08 Vitamin K is measured in μg not mg.
    From Linus Pauling Institute:
    The adequate intake (AI) level for vitamin K is set at 90 μg/day for women and 120 μg/day for men.

  • No snacking between meals. What are your thoughts on protein supplements as a snack or before bed? My body type requires more protein than I can get with meals alone. I simply don’t grow without it. Should I include the protein shakes with my meals and cut them out as snacks or eliminate them?

  • Is there any concern combining these supplements? Once I took a D3 and k2, plus a 1000mg vitamin C, and I had terrible stomach pain. Now I’m concerned about optimal timing for my supplements.

  • Thomas please do some videos on cooking with this diet and a shopping video for it. I have RA and feel this would be so good for my body inflammation more so than basic Keto with all the dairy content.

  • Finally I am not big on meat type of person but I’ll eat anything from the ocean just make wanting to try keto even more convincing

  • Thomas thank you so much for this information it’s great! I would love to see more videos on recipes and diet but also a Mediterranean shopping haul. You do such an awesome job and thank you for the information and thank you for making it free.

  • Atlantic Salmon is farm raised. Which means antibiotics. Alaskan Salmon is wild caught but then there’s Fukushima fallout. ����‍♂️

  • Hey, Thomas! Could you make a video on the Mediterreanean Keto plan for people who don’t eat three meals a day? 2-MAD and OMAD? That would be rad!

  • When you talk about supplements, you mention particular formulations for each supplement. Could you please do a video specific to the supplements and you’re recommended formulation of each supplement. Then list off the supplements(in the formulation form that we would see when looking at the product on the shelf) in the description too make it easier for us when shopping for supplements.

  • zucchini noodles with lean beef(cooked in avocado oil, with the leftover avocado oil used to cook the meat over the zucchini noodles) with a bit of lemon juice squeezed onto everything, add salt and pepper to taste. I haven’t tried it but it sounds good.

  • You mention Kale…I buy packages of “Micro Kale” and “Micro Rainbow Mix”, they are little packages of tiny sprouts, I like the texture better than Kale and lettuce, would you say this is a good thing?

  • Very intrigued by this merging of the two styles in a diet. Please keep giving us info on this and ways to sustain it. I’ve only been on keto for a couple of months and I’ve lost 20lbs, however I’m worried about cholesterol as I’ve been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

  • 0:55 For sake of clarity: they are perpendicular or cross-sectional. Running along side each other is parallel where no point intersect.

  • Hi Thomas! I never leave comments but wanna say a couple things: first, THANK YOU for paying attention to the effect of keto/fasting on women and coalescing that research for us in an understandable way. I hope you will continue to do videos like that. Second, I grew up b/w Morocco/Italy and ate “mediterranean” diet all my life! I wanna let you know that you overlooked the vitally important role of HERBS & SPICES! Meals from these regions of the world are also looked at synergistically, and not in their component parts. For example, a meal is based around how the vegetables/proteins/fats and herbs/spices will work together in the dish in terms of flavoring…anyway I love ur work and was so excited for this video! But just wanted to add this tidbit in.

  • Please please give recipes…that would be wonderful! I do love my coffee with mat oil or brain octane oil..I also use liquid stevia:)

  • I did a similar thing to get my very high LDL down and it worked. My GP was stunned. You mentioned not to have more than 30g carbs a day, but to be keto, isn’t it 20g or under?

  • Bravo Thomas this is what I practice minus the steak I eat cod salmon shrimp tuna and sometimes chicken for meat. But i do intermittent fasting best diet ever. Never get board and I’ve lost 232 lb since 11/2017.

  • @Mic the Vegan: I like this approach. Quotes and sources! Bravo! Here’s a link for you: a paper thats funded by BHF, and not the dairy industry, that says Satfats are not the cause, with 642000 participants.

    But: Oh oh. You thought its a “narrative”? It’s not, its basic endocrinology. You thought obesity is “feminization”? It’s not, its a result of insulin hormone.

    From hormonal obesity caused by diet, you get diabetes and then atherosclerosis. Insulin commands the body to store excess calories as fat: after couple of years there’s fat everywhere.

    So, just that you have the rough idea, for your homework. And yeah, repeating the satfat myth points to mountains of said homework.

  • Totally agree this is the healthiest diet you can eat. The problem is it’s so expensive. People wonder why so much junk food is consumed in the US, it’s because it’s so cheap, people can’t afford to feed their families anymore. I have tried very hard to source quality meats and fish, if they are double sometimes triple the price of most average cuts, I can’t afford it. With hamburger is four dollars a pound and grass fed grass finished hamburger is nine dollars a pound, I just can’t justify the price difference. One last little thing, olive oil based mayonnaise, I have yet to find one on the shelf anywhere around me the canola oil is not the first ingredient

  • Hey, Thomas! Could you make a video on the Mediterreanean Keto plan for people who don’t eat three meals a day? 2-MAD and OMAD? That would be rad!

  • To Mic’s point, I think it is likely the richer you are the more animal fat you will eat, and so I would expect royalty to eat lots of saturated fat and lots of whatever else tastes good (like bread!). This would make them fatter than the average person who would eat what’s cheap (bread!). Still, his main point that saturated fat is the problem is wrong, wrong, wrong. Eating carbs with your animal fat is the problem. Fat + Carbs = weight gain. That’s bodybuilding 101. Eat your fat with protein, or your carbs with protein, but never your fat with carbs. Saturated fat is NOT dangerous alone. And low carb diets, TRULY low carb (under 20g carbs a day), win every time in helping people lose weight. See Paul Mason’s YouTube video “Saturated Fat is Not Dangerous.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUY_SDhxf4k (watch on 1.5x)

    BTW, I’ve been eating ZERO carb, high fat for FOUR years come January (I’m 59) and my blood work has improved (HDL up, trigs down, BP 110/70, etc… LDL is up a lot… 309!, but LDL is not dangerous unless it’s the small, dense, glycated kind, which mine isn’t… in fact, LDL is protective against infections, and I’ve had just a couple mild colds-after eating some sugary desserts of course-in four years, which is unheard of for me-used to gets colds all the time)… eating a dozen eggs a day, bacon, a pound of beef at least every damn day. You should just test a carnivore diet and see how you do. It’s free and N=1 gives you direct knowledge of your own health on a given diet, which is better than trusting some study that may or may not be representative of you.

  • I am so thankful for all these videos. I often pause them and google search certain things to get a full understanding. I would DEFINITELY love to see some recipes!

  • Thanks for making a post linking to the video or else I would have never seen it! I love your research! It’s also funny to know that the Egyptians uses “filters” in there own way when making statues lolololol

  • I read something that made me a little bit confused. Its about how to “reverse” your biological age. You have talked about the benefits of an high carb diet before. Can you bring this up in an upcoming video? ����❤️

    “How to turn on your mitochondria 
    Eat a keto diet (or a variation). In animal studies, a keto diet (lots of fat, very few carbs) makes existing mitochondria more efficient, and also grows new ones (called mitochondrial biogenesis)[8]. A keto diet also increases mitochondrial density in the liver and skeletal muscles of mice[9]. In humans, ketosis increases mitochondrial function and protects mitochondria from stress-related damage[10].”

  • @Mic the Vegan: I like this approach. Quotes and sources! Bravo! Here’s a link for you: a paper thats funded by BHF, and not the dairy industry, that says Satfats are not the cause, with 642000 participants.

  • I’ve been a long time fan of “what I’ve learn” channel, but by now it is clear he’s bought by the meat & diary industry. Thanks for clarifying his video Mic!

  • Unfortunately, Mic the Vegan you are preaching to the choir. Most Americans think that most of high fat foods (e.g., donuts, bagels with cream cheese, spaghetti with meat sauce, etc.) are all high carbohydrate foods. They don’t understand the basics of nutrition.

  • Mic you look rather pale i must say.
    Maybe you should avoid your phytic acid containing foods and instead get some hemeiron containing foods 😉

  • 4:15 It’s always the same straw man, isn’t it?
    Using the fact, that people who like burgers with french fries and coke are unhealthy, to show how meat is bad and carbs are good.
    The modern western fast food diet is a high carb diet. You will never convince someone who is into keto or carnivore with this bs argument.
    You seem fairly intelligent, and it is ever so more strange to me that you use this argument over and over again. It’s laughably dumb.

  • I don’t know about Egyptians, but I watch a lot of people like Geoff Lawton. He says that the Nile used to be lush and green, but the reason why it is so desertified is because of animal agriculture.

    Basically all over the world once humans started herding and breeding animals they basically put a HUGE impact on the environment. These animals ate all the crops and this in turn after thousands of years left these areas in the world barren and lifeless.

    All over the world people have been able to reverse this buy simply quitting, or keeping their animals in fenced areas allowing the land to heal and giving the chance for trees and such to grow.

    So if that is true then the Egyptians were probably breeding, herding and slaughtering animals.

  • http://youtu.be/bY2v6AnEyuU Excellent video further showing the effects of wheat and Egyptians overconsumption of it.

  • Eades appears to be TOFI (thin on the outside fat on the inside) AKA skinny fat. I did a video about him a couple weeks ago and he appears to have excessive abdominal and visceral fat, along with a generally dilapidated and burned-out appearance.

  • They found 3 overweight ancient Egyptians kings clearly, it’s the carbs… and if they really look into it, I bet people eating carbs also create hurricanes and whatnot..

  • I think every person is difrent. Some people feel better when eating vegan or some people when eating carnivore fell better. Every body responds difrent to food so everybody should try vegan and other diets to see how they body responds

  • There is a new documentary out on Amazon prime called Fat Fiction. It was suggesting low carb diets. I saw alot of flaws in the documentary and it would be great if you did a reaction on the documentarty.

  • https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-8586759/Founder-plant-based-vegan-company-Hippie-Lane-family-eating-meat.html

    I’d really like you to investigate this lady Mic..thanks

  • I find this so sad. He has a well produced channel and has some important information, but it gets completely lost by the ridiculous cherry picking and “distorting/misuse” of data. Thanks for adding extra info, Mike!

  • Hello just ran across this article about how meat eaters think about veganism. Surprisingly positive. https://www.sciencealert.com/new-research-shows-what-meat-eaters-really-think-of-veganism

  • I love how the low-carb drs. giving their speeches extolling animal products all have pot bellies. Haven’t seen one fat PB dr. yet.

  • Lol I have been whole food plant based for 8 years and weigh what I did in high school and am seeing my abs and hardly working out. I do maintain a 1 acre grass yard but other than that….. I am so thankful I found out this info back then. Even today a guy that came to help us with the weeds was amazed at how young I looked and I gave him the info about why. He has some comorbidity diseases that the plant based diet can help greatly. I hope he does look into it.
    I hate to see people sick when they dont have to be.

  • Great video! Thank you!

    I think it would be cool if you did one on Leonardo da Vinci too. I read something about him being vegetarian, and that it supposedly caused a brain condition. I’m not buying it.

  • See you want to pick on this guy cherry picking, but then you pull shit out like making Trump an example of course those of us pro low carb are going to point out it is the sugar (carbs) and insulin resistance that causes the fat to get locked then of course it doesn’t matter where the fat comes from, animal or plant, you can’t use it because its locked because of insulin spiked from the sugar so the excess is stored as fat.

    Its the same with these well off egyptians and anyone like when we look at countries with high carb diets but in good health. If you can’t see the link you must be pretty stupid. If you eat high carbs and high fat you can’t use the fat/energy due to insulin. Please try disprove this.

    So these well off Egyptians would of eaten mostly carbs but unlike the workers and everyday people would of also had access to meat I’m sure they didn’t trim off the fat. Today places like USA and other Western countries we have high carb AND high fat. Not just carbs with fibre either this is people drinking giant sodas and whatever completely blocking any ability to use fat.

    Places like Asia that people point to that have good health and high carb don’t have the high fat/lots of meat like Western countries. But now places like China and already for a while Japan where meat is much more easily accessible now face the same diseases and health quality is reducing. Same for Vegetarians you don’t eat meat so you don’t have unusable calories due to your insulin levels, which are probably OK insulin levels considering your carbs with lots of fibre aren’t as impacting as drinking 2 litres of coke.

    Also average life expectancy doesn’t mean people actually lived to 40 or 50, it means a higher amount of childhood deaths (see AVERAGE). Countless studies and records show that if people at least in Roman times lived past childhood they would perfectly well live to 70 or more. These type statements just show you are not fact checking what you say and makes everything you state then questionable.

  • And they were eating meat, What I’ve learned cherry picks, you cherry pick, it’s annoying unproductive and i wish people didn’t take you both seriously

  • 5:10 even though I agree on most of you arguments, you can’t say that YIL can’t use a statue of a fat men as an argument and then use yourself paintings of slim people as an argument. If those painting represent the pleb, they won’t draw them fat, by design

  • If you search “Egypts Unexplained Files: Curse of the Crocodile Queen” here on YouTube, starting about 9m30s into the video there is a segment on how Egyptians survived 150 years of drought. The Hittites were begging Ramses 2 for grains, because everyone in the area was starving. The question was how did Egypt survive droughts like this? The answer was that although the elites ate a ton of meat, commoners were mostly surviving on wheat, barely, and other grains/legumes normal to their diets, because the plant based diet used less water than it took to raise animals for food. The Egyptians bred grains that were much more drought resistant. They mixed local cattle with zebu cows, who lived better in heat, and were able to continue to use them as their farming machines. So, while other kingdoms were dying out, Egyptians were surviving by not murdering all their farm animals and then starving for lack of a clue on how to grow and eat a plant-based diet.

  • What a surprise, considering Lancet also published the initial articles claiming a vaccine/autism link, kicking off the whole antivax movement we enjoy today.

  • http://youtu.be/bY2v6AnEyuU Excellent video further showing the effects of wheat and Egyptians overconsumption of it.

  • Your video debunking WIL’s video seems to leave a number of points omitted or half addressed. I’m not saying you’re wrong, however, you need to address the main points in his video to claim it is debunked.

    You imply that the Lipid-Heart Hypothesis (also known as the Diet-Heart Hypothesis) is actually true. Ancel Keys, himself, actually disproved his own hypothesis with a subsequent study. Ancel Keys’ Minnesota Coronary Experiment, a double-blind randomized controlled trial, was not initially published.

    Further, you don’t major parts of the video like the interview with Dr. Paul Mason… Or the excerpt from the 1977 US Senate hearing for the Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, where Dr. Robert Olsen pleads for more research on the problem before the guidelines are released to the public… Or the excerpt from Mary Enig, Ph.D., biochemist or the book excerpt from Louise Light, M.S., Ed. D., former director of dietary guidance and nutrition education research at the USDA, who led the team that developed the nutritional guidelines and the fact that her team recommended a maximum of 3-4 servings of whole grains and cereals a day, but that recommendation was revised to 9-11 servings for financial reasons.

    Also, a quick Google search pulls up a page from National Geographic which discusses what King Tut was buried with. Your point about the meat is funny, but you neglect to mention the more than 100 baskets of plant-based foods that were also buried with Tut as well as jars wine and what experts believe is a jar of honey. Granted, there was a lot of meat, but there were even more plant-based food items… Frankly, it was a lot of food in general, I guess he really was planning for the rest of eternity in his afterlife…

  • 9:18 Oops, I thought you said ancient Egyptians ate breadfruit and was confused how they would have acquired tropical fruit from Southeast Asia.

  • wholefood organic vegan diets destroyed the health of everyone i know who tried it. Egyptians are renowned for having terrible bone and teeth damage due to grain diets. it was the pharoahs who were sometimes white with red hair not the average people.

  • Great video, glad to be more holistically informed. I will say to many people in the comments that WIL goes pretty in depth about meat and vegetables in many of his videos, and you can learn from his information without being keto like him. He also addresses why Japan is healthy on a high carb diet in a video.

  • Dude Tut buried with Beef???? The Egyptians saw Cows as Sacred! And their gods had wings!!
    ah WHAT A SELF_DEBUNK!!! Showing such ignorance! Thank you for confirming that WIL is correct!!!

  • Dude Egyptians worshiped Cows; it was a god to them and they hated shepherds Genesis 46:34 I enjoyed watching you dunk yourself.

  • Dude Trump loves ICE CREAM!!! THAT’S FAT AND SUGAR!!! Worse combination ever. Don’t about Nov 2020 just feed him ore ICE CREAM!!!

  • Hello Mic

    I really enjoyed this video, and I appreciate how you do lots of research and link all your sources.

    I recently read about how high blood sugar can act like little fragments of glass and cause cuts in the arteries, these cuts are then filled with cholesterol, vitamin C is needed to repair these cracks but only the whole vitamin C works and not the ascorbic acid which pharmaceuticals intentionally misbrand as vitamin C even though it’s only a small part of the vitamin C molecule.

    It sounds to me like Cholesterol may be in part a symptom and the underlying cause could be a lack of natural vitamin C. (You could even suggest that vitamin C is at the heart of the issue 😉 )
    All meat diets contain much less Vitamin C than plant based diets, so this’d make sense from this context.
    Since a lot of studies however will use supplements and supplements wouldn’t work, you’d need whole vitamin C. it’s awkward to find good studies relating to this.

    What are your thoughts on this, am I stupid for considering this, or does it make sense?
    Here’s the couple sites I read which seemed to mention this. Id be interested on what relevant studies there might be about this topic.

  • Hello everyone, please repent of your sins and give your lives to Jesus Christ. God loves you so much that he came in the flesh and died on the cross for our sins that’s the only sacrifice that can bring humanity back to God and that sacrifice is Jesus the Lamb of God. Please give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ without having Jesus as your Lord and savior when you die you go to hell. Hell is real Heaven is real so please repent and turn your lives over to Christ.For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life John 3:16 believe in Christ that he died for your sin and resurrected on the third day. Read the Gospels Mathew-Mark-Luke-John Please read and spread the word as much as possible. May God be with you all

  • So you’re interested in ancient Africa but you won’t comment on black lives matter today? Human issues are also vegan issues. I wish I’d stopped getting these notifications even though I unsubscribed a long time ago.

  • It’s refined sugars, refined wheat and vegetable oils that drive chronic diseases. Ironically all plant foods. Look at the history, the first recorded fatal heart attack with an autopsy was 1912. Type 2 diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s all the same timeline roughly. Now they’re an epidemic within 100 years and you blame meat?.. Pretty sure meat was around for a while longer….

  • Come on surely healthy fat with grains is not a problem. When famine strikes the fat would be burnt. Though say the fat people build today from saturated fats alot harder to burn. Though today soya bread, glyphosate and just bad ingredients in bread, I’d rather have refined wheat anyday thanks.

  • King Tut came from a (highly inbred) family that was very, very well known for its unusual body shape in the males….. there seems to have been some kind of genetic problems.

  • this is literally what i had for breakfast today! except i had a small piece of sardine and had spinach and baby kale fresh not sautéed.

  • i’m not trying to lose weight, but i was just ravenously hungry and been eating all day.
    what i did that was helpful in counteracting the hunger was:
    1. increasing fat intake. of course preferring the mono/poly unsaturated. but i’m still consuming saturated fats as well such as full-fat dairy, cheese, meats, yogurt, etc.
    2. try to make my carbs more complex/ and reduce their glycemic index by eating carbs with more fibers such as adding vegetables to rice, or meat to rice when possible.
    3. reduce simple carbs (the hardest one to do lol). sugar/ carb crash makes you hungry. and high sugar is inflammatory to everything in our body anyways.
    it seems to have helped me reduce hunger a lot. albeit if i work out really hard or go for a serious hike i’m completely drained. so tired. so now i learn that if i need to expend lots of energy working out or hiking, then i should add much more carbs. but for everyday sedentary existence, we don’t need so much carbs. i am not pro-keto for myself personally. so i would say generally 35% fat 25% protein and 40% carbs for a regular day. always preferring complex carbs. this should solve the hunger and make you healthier.

  • Even though I’m Keto I have a lot of weight to lose so my fat is more in the Mediterranean range. I believe that I’ll probably end up as a hybrid between the Mediterranean and the keto. because of my diabetes I doubt I’ll ever be able to eat more than 20 to 40 carbs a day anyway but to maintain 160 G of fat a day is really not sustainable for me. That is an awful lot of fat to try to stuff into yourself.

  • I eat a ketogenic lifestyle. Usually over 170 grams daily. Fat makes up 75+% of my diet. I have been eating this way for over a year. I have lost over 50 lbs. I feel great. I am over 60 and since going keto I no longer take any medications. No more insulin, no more blood pressure meds and no more cholesterol meds.

  • Pure Genious so informed & articulate loved this thank you Health is the Default integrated medicine s hour has finally come at last
    s

  • Perpendicular diets means that they intersect rather than run parallel. Mediterranean is regional & keto is macros, they INTERSECT at Mediterranean Keto. Full explanation of this in the into to Mediterranean Keto video here ���� https://youtu.be/fqbbM7kzp0U

  • ..coconut oil is tropics

    Mediterranean Diet is olive oil.

    There are so many people that cannot have anything coconut.

    avocado? not that either.

    In practically every video, it is coconut and/or avocado.

    I know I would like to hear more 0 carb and low carb food selections in products and in recipes.

    ..and yes, I went to Thrive.

    It is heavily leaning coconut and avocado.

  • I would love more recipes. I have been working on learning what my body responses too. I did IF and keto for about 8 months and watched my weight slowly come off. I had better sleep, reduced inflammation. Then COVID hit, I am a health care worker in a nursing home. The stress hit me hard and I gained all the weight back quickly. Now my body is premenopausal, stressed out, and I also had a mild case of COVID. For a month.
    I am recovering now ready to start focusing on my health again. I really want to support my immune system more. Figure out hormones and hopefully lose weight.

  • This is great, but as an Italian… you’re missing the simplicity of true Mediterranean. We wouldn’t eat any of those processed foods. Breakfast: soft-boiled eggs, whole grain bread, coffee with cream. Lunch: greens, some sardines/makerel/salmon, tomatoes, fresh herbs, olive oil, peppers, and artichokes. Snack: a few nuts, a little salami, or a little burrata on a sliced tomato. Dinner: Cooked veggies (cavoletti, broccolini, carciofi) with fresh fish grilled and a salad. red wine. done. 80% fat, all natural. delicious. usually 1,300 cals a day.

  • I am all about this diet and can’t wait to start! However I’m curious of this meal plan providedwill this be suited for a women whom is trying to lose weight as well? I fast every other day, please help me figure out how much I should be eating to be successful

  • this is literally what i had for breakfast today! except i had a small piece of sardine and had spinach and baby kale fresh not sautéed.

  • Thank you for your info. How about how to start mediterranean keto, but for women. Kinda of a combo of the other women keto start video but keeping mediterranean.

  • I would like to see some more recipes pretty please and what market do you recommend I go to now with the whole pandemic we have going on now? Please and thank you

  • What made the guy fat was most probably eating too much. Good old calorie surplus. Saying it’s the meat that made him fat makes as much sense as saying it’s the carbs

  • No snacking between meals. What are your thoughts on protein supplements as a snack or before bed? My body type requires more protein than I can get with meals alone. I simply don’t grow without it. Should I include the protein shakes with my meals and cut them out as snacks or eliminate them?

  • Is there any concern combining these supplements? Once I took a D3 and k2, plus a 1000mg vitamin C, and I had terrible stomach pain. Now I’m concerned about optimal timing for my supplements.

  • 0:55 For sake of clarity: they are perpendicular or cross-sectional. Running along side each other is parallel where no point intersect.

  • Finally I am not big on meat type of person but I’ll eat anything from the ocean just make wanting to try keto even more convincing

  • Thomas thank you so much for this information it’s great! I would love to see more videos on recipes and diet but also a Mediterranean shopping haul. You do such an awesome job and thank you for the information and thank you for making it free.

  • Atlantic Salmon is farm raised. Which means antibiotics. Alaskan Salmon is wild caught but then there’s Fukushima fallout. ����‍♂️

  • 12:35 As someone that lives in Asia, China specifically, this is so wrong and pretty racist. Asians eat more than just rice, and more meat/fat than the US does.

  • When you talk about supplements, you mention particular formulations for each supplement. Could you please do a video specific to the supplements and you’re recommended formulation of each supplement. Then list off the supplements(in the formulation form that we would see when looking at the product on the shelf) in the description too make it easier for us when shopping for supplements.

  • Dude Egyptians worshiped Cows; it was a god to them and they hated shepherds Genesis 46:34 I enjoyed watching you dunk yourself.

  • You mention Kale…I buy packages of “Micro Kale” and “Micro Rainbow Mix”, they are little packages of tiny sprouts, I like the texture better than Kale and lettuce, would you say this is a good thing?

  • Very intrigued by this merging of the two styles in a diet. Please keep giving us info on this and ways to sustain it. I’ve only been on keto for a couple of months and I’ve lost 20lbs, however I’m worried about cholesterol as I’ve been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

  • Thomas please do some videos on cooking with this diet and a shopping video for it. I have RA and feel this would be so good for my body inflammation more so than basic Keto with all the dairy content.

  • Hi Thomas! I never leave comments but wanna say a couple things: first, THANK YOU for paying attention to the effect of keto/fasting on women and coalescing that research for us in an understandable way. I hope you will continue to do videos like that. Second, I grew up b/w Morocco/Italy and ate “mediterranean” diet all my life! I wanna let you know that you overlooked the vitally important role of HERBS & SPICES! Meals from these regions of the world are also looked at synergistically, and not in their component parts. For example, a meal is based around how the vegetables/proteins/fats and herbs/spices will work together in the dish in terms of flavoring…anyway I love ur work and was so excited for this video! But just wanted to add this tidbit in.

  • Please please give recipes…that would be wonderful! I do love my coffee with mat oil or brain octane oil..I also use liquid stevia:)

  • I did a similar thing to get my very high LDL down and it worked. My GP was stunned. You mentioned not to have more than 30g carbs a day, but to be keto, isn’t it 20g or under?

  • Bravo Thomas this is what I practice minus the steak I eat cod salmon shrimp tuna and sometimes chicken for meat. But i do intermittent fasting best diet ever. Never get board and I’ve lost 232 lb since 11/2017.

  • Believe what u want. I lost 120lbs doing keto n then carnivore. I was diagnosed with a fatty gallbladder and fatty liver. Scared me straight… Not only did I lose my diabetes.. my fatty gallbladder… GONE.. my fatty liver… GONE. all of my tests done after the dieting… lol Drs couldn’t believe it but the truth was staring them in the face. I also always had problems with low electrolytes and vitamins. Hmmmmz…. not anymore. My depression is almost nonexistent.. and I used to be suicidal… my thinking is a lot clearer and memory MUCH BETTER. So if being vegan works wonders for y’all… then awesome. But all the dark green leafy veggies.. when I thought salads n veggies were healthier for me… I landed in the hospital with severe blood clots. Sooooo… maybe not every diet works the same for every1. Because my body DOES NOT work well with vitamin K.

  • King Tut came from a (highly inbred) family that was very, very well known for its unusual body shape in the males….. there seems to have been some kind of genetic problems.

  • To Mic’s point, I think it is likely the richer you are the more animal fat you will eat, and so I would expect royalty to eat lots of saturated fat and lots of whatever else tastes good (like bread!). This would make them fatter than the average person who would eat what’s cheap (bread!). Still, his main point that saturated fat is the problem is wrong, wrong, wrong. Eating carbs with your animal fat is the problem. Fat + Carbs = weight gain. That’s bodybuilding 101. Eat your fat with protein, or your carbs with protein, but never your fat with carbs. Saturated fat is NOT dangerous alone. And low carb diets, TRULY low carb (under 20g carbs a day), win every time in helping people lose weight. See Paul Mason’s YouTube video “Saturated Fat is Not Dangerous.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUY_SDhxf4k (watch on 1.5x)

    BTW, I’ve been eating ZERO carb, high fat for FOUR years come January (I’m 59) and my blood work has improved (HDL up, trigs down, BP 110/70, etc… LDL is up a lot… 309!, but LDL is not dangerous unless it’s the small, dense, glycated kind, which mine isn’t… in fact, LDL is protective against infections, and I’ve had just a couple mild colds-after eating some sugary desserts of course-in four years, which is unheard of for me-used to gets colds all the time)… eating a dozen eggs a day, bacon, a pound of beef at least every damn day. You should just test a carnivore diet and see how you do. It’s free and N=1 gives you direct knowledge of your own health on a given diet, which is better than trusting some study that may or may not be representative of you.

  • Believe what u want. I lost 120lbs doing keto n then carnivore. I was diagnosed with a fatty gallbladder and fatty liver.

  • Cows were revered in Egypt as a source of life in the harsh desert environment and whole cows were sometimes also buried with people. Later they were worshipped as the cow goddess Bat the protector and mother of the pharaoh. BBC

  • I read something that made me a little bit confused. Its about how to “reverse” your biological age. You have talked about the benefits of an high carb diet before. Can you bring this up in an upcoming video? ����❤️

    “How to turn on your mitochondria 
    Eat a keto diet (or a variation). In animal studies, a keto diet (lots of fat, very few carbs) makes existing mitochondria more efficient, and also grows new ones (called mitochondrial biogenesis)[8]. A keto diet also increases mitochondrial density in the liver and skeletal muscles of mice[9]. In humans, ketosis increases mitochondrial function and protects mitochondria from stress-related damage[10].”

  • I am so thankful for all these videos. I often pause them and google search certain things to get a full understanding. I would DEFINITELY love to see some recipes!

  • I’ve been a long time fan of “what I’ve learn” channel, but by now it is clear he’s bought by the meat & diary industry. Thanks for clarifying his video Mic!

  • Unfortunately, Mic the Vegan you are preaching to the choir. Most Americans think that most of high fat foods (e.g., donuts, bagels with cream cheese, spaghetti with meat sauce, etc.) are all high carbohydrate foods. They don’t understand the basics of nutrition.

  • I don’t know about Egyptians, but I watch a lot of people like Geoff Lawton. He says that the Nile used to be lush and green, but the reason why it is so desertified is because of animal agriculture.

    Basically all over the world once humans started herding and breeding animals they basically put a HUGE impact on the environment. These animals ate all the crops and this in turn after thousands of years left these areas in the world barren and lifeless.

    All over the world people have been able to reverse this buy simply quitting, or keeping their animals in fenced areas allowing the land to heal and giving the chance for trees and such to grow.

    So if that is true then the Egyptians were probably breeding, herding and slaughtering animals.

  • 4:15 It’s always the same straw man, isn’t it?
    Using the fact, that people who like burgers with french fries and coke are unhealthy, to show how meat is bad and carbs are good.
    The modern western fast food diet is a high carb diet. You will never convince someone who is into keto or carnivore with this bs argument.
    You seem fairly intelligent, and it is ever so more strange to me that you use this argument over and over again. It’s laughably dumb.

  • Mic you look rather pale i must say.
    Maybe you should avoid your phytic acid containing foods and instead get some hemeiron containing foods 😉

  • Hey im a meateater and eating meat has been helping with my digestive issues.

    I just wanted to say this was a great video. Sometimes what I’ve learned is on the ball but when I watched his most recent video I was just thought it did not sound right at all. Well done good video dude

  • Eades appears to be TOFI (thin on the outside fat on the inside) AKA skinny fat. I did a video about him a couple weeks ago and he appears to have excessive abdominal and visceral fat, along with a generally dilapidated and burned-out appearance.

  • They found 3 overweight ancient Egyptians kings clearly, it’s the carbs… and if they really look into it, I bet people eating carbs also create hurricanes and whatnot..

  • I think every person is difrent. Some people feel better when eating vegan or some people when eating carnivore fell better. Every body responds difrent to food so everybody should try vegan and other diets to see how they body responds

  • There is a new documentary out on Amazon prime called Fat Fiction. It was suggesting low carb diets. I saw alot of flaws in the documentary and it would be great if you did a reaction on the documentarty.

  • https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-8586759/Founder-plant-based-vegan-company-Hippie-Lane-family-eating-meat.html

    I’d really like you to investigate this lady Mic..thanks

  • I find this so sad. He has a well produced channel and has some important information, but it gets completely lost by the ridiculous cherry picking and “distorting/misuse” of data. Thanks for adding extra info, Mike!

  • Hello just ran across this article about how meat eaters think about veganism. Surprisingly positive. https://www.sciencealert.com/new-research-shows-what-meat-eaters-really-think-of-veganism

  • I love how the low-carb drs. giving their speeches extolling animal products all have pot bellies. Haven’t seen one fat PB dr. yet.

  • Lol I have been whole food plant based for 8 years and weigh what I did in high school and am seeing my abs and hardly working out. I do maintain a 1 acre grass yard but other than that….. I am so thankful I found out this info back then. Even today a guy that came to help us with the weeds was amazed at how young I looked and I gave him the info about why. He has some comorbidity diseases that the plant based diet can help greatly. I hope he does look into it.
    I hate to see people sick when they dont have to be.

  • Come on surely healthy fat with grains is not a problem. When famine strikes the fat would be burnt. Though say the fat people build today from saturated fats alot harder to burn. Though today soya bread, glyphosate and just bad ingredients in bread, I’d rather have refined wheat anyday thanks.

  • See you want to pick on this guy cherry picking, but then you pull shit out like making Trump an example of course those of us pro low carb are going to point out it is the sugar (carbs) and insulin resistance that causes the fat to get locked then of course it doesn’t matter where the fat comes from, animal or plant, you can’t use it because its locked because of insulin spiked from the sugar so the excess is stored as fat.

    Its the same with these well off egyptians and anyone like when we look at countries with high carb diets but in good health. If you can’t see the link you must be pretty stupid. If you eat high carbs and high fat you can’t use the fat/energy due to insulin. Please try disprove this.

    So these well off Egyptians would of eaten mostly carbs but unlike the workers and everyday people would of also had access to meat I’m sure they didn’t trim off the fat. Today places like USA and other Western countries we have high carb AND high fat. Not just carbs with fibre either this is people drinking giant sodas and whatever completely blocking any ability to use fat.

    Places like Asia that people point to that have good health and high carb don’t have the high fat/lots of meat like Western countries. But now places like China and already for a while Japan where meat is much more easily accessible now face the same diseases and health quality is reducing. Same for Vegetarians you don’t eat meat so you don’t have unusable calories due to your insulin levels, which are probably OK insulin levels considering your carbs with lots of fibre aren’t as impacting as drinking 2 litres of coke.

    Also average life expectancy doesn’t mean people actually lived to 40 or 50, it means a higher amount of childhood deaths (see AVERAGE). Countless studies and records show that if people at least in Roman times lived past childhood they would perfectly well live to 70 or more. These type statements just show you are not fact checking what you say and makes everything you state then questionable.

  • And they were eating meat, What I’ve learned cherry picks, you cherry pick, it’s annoying unproductive and i wish people didn’t take you both seriously

  • 5:10 even though I agree on most of you arguments, you can’t say that YIL can’t use a statue of a fat men as an argument and then use yourself paintings of slim people as an argument. If those painting represent the pleb, they won’t draw them fat, by design

  • If you search “Egypts Unexplained Files: Curse of the Crocodile Queen” here on YouTube, starting about 9m30s into the video there is a segment on how Egyptians survived 150 years of drought. The Hittites were begging Ramses 2 for grains, because everyone in the area was starving. The question was how did Egypt survive droughts like this? The answer was that although the elites ate a ton of meat, commoners were mostly surviving on wheat, barely, and other grains/legumes normal to their diets, because the plant based diet used less water than it took to raise animals for food. The Egyptians bred grains that were much more drought resistant. They mixed local cattle with zebu cows, who lived better in heat, and were able to continue to use them as their farming machines. So, while other kingdoms were dying out, Egyptians were surviving by not murdering all their farm animals and then starving for lack of a clue on how to grow and eat a plant-based diet.

  • What a surprise, considering Lancet also published the initial articles claiming a vaccine/autism link, kicking off the whole antivax movement we enjoy today.

  • What made the guy fat was most probably eating too much. Good old calorie surplus. Saying it’s the meat that made him fat makes as much sense as saying it’s the carbs

  • 9:18 Oops, I thought you said ancient Egyptians ate breadfruit and was confused how they would have acquired tropical fruit from Southeast Asia.

  • Your video debunking WIL’s video seems to leave a number of points omitted or half addressed. I’m not saying you’re wrong, however, you need to address the main points in his video to claim it is debunked.

    You imply that the Lipid-Heart Hypothesis (also known as the Diet-Heart Hypothesis) is actually true. Ancel Keys, himself, actually disproved his own hypothesis with a subsequent study. Ancel Keys’ Minnesota Coronary Experiment, a double-blind randomized controlled trial, was not initially published.

    Further, you don’t major parts of the video like the interview with Dr. Paul Mason… Or the excerpt from the 1977 US Senate hearing for the Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, where Dr. Robert Olsen pleads for more research on the problem before the guidelines are released to the public… Or the excerpt from Mary Enig, Ph.D., biochemist or the book excerpt from Louise Light, M.S., Ed. D., former director of dietary guidance and nutrition education research at the USDA, who led the team that developed the nutritional guidelines and the fact that her team recommended a maximum of 3-4 servings of whole grains and cereals a day, but that recommendation was revised to 9-11 servings for financial reasons.

    Also, a quick Google search pulls up a page from National Geographic which discusses what King Tut was buried with. Your point about the meat is funny, but you neglect to mention the more than 100 baskets of plant-based foods that were also buried with Tut as well as jars wine and what experts believe is a jar of honey. Granted, there was a lot of meat, but there were even more plant-based food items… Frankly, it was a lot of food in general, I guess he really was planning for the rest of eternity in his afterlife…

  • Great video! Thank you!

    I think it would be cool if you did one on Leonardo da Vinci too. I read something about him being vegetarian, and that it supposedly caused a brain condition. I’m not buying it.

  • Totally agree this is the healthiest diet you can eat. The problem is it’s so expensive. People wonder why so much junk food is consumed in the US, it’s because it’s so cheap, people can’t afford to feed their families anymore. I have tried very hard to source quality meats and fish, if they are double sometimes triple the price of most average cuts, I can’t afford it. With hamburger is four dollars a pound and grass fed grass finished hamburger is nine dollars a pound, I just can’t justify the price difference. One last little thing, olive oil based mayonnaise, I have yet to find one on the shelf anywhere around me the canola oil is not the first ingredient
