You can feel like you’re doing all the right things — and you might lose some weight at first, but then you might reach the dreaded weight-loss plateau. A common weight loss mistake is to eat too few calories, so before you start on this or any other weight loss plan, calculate your personal calorie needs.

  • I work as a model and personal trainer so on occasion i have to get lean. it isnt fun but it can actually be enjoyable and rewarding i dont go low fat or low carb. Its about getting enough protein, plenty of fibre (fruit, mainly apples berries and grapes/melon, making half your plate veggies like broccoli and romaine) training but not over training, laying off the processed foods (although the odd spoon of nutella or a tub of halo top 300cal ice cream is ok and can make it more enjoyable) and i dont count every calorie. I just am mindful lots of veggies, lower calorie fruit, protein (tofu, lentils, vegetable protein) and drink plenty of water! ��

  • “Getting into this diet was so easy and the results were so fast. After only 1 week on the Smoothie Diet I weighed myself and realized I had lost 8 pounds! I feel better and more confident than I have in a very long time, I don’t have to suck in my stomach to button my pants anymore and I still have to stop to do a double take everytime I walk in front of a mirror.”clik here to learn more


  • When considering eating healthy, you must try not to fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diet plans undoubtedly are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your everyday nutritionary intake. While they might induce rapid loss of weight, these diets are never a long-term answer for your waistline. It is best to search Fenoboci Diet Plan on google since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • it’s just basically lots of fruits and vegetables with a little bit of animal protein and less carbs and sugar! I actually think potatoes are okay if you make them healthy. It’s the sugar and processed food that is bad!

  • So, this program has high in fiber, minimum protien, and all the calories you can consume in vegitables?

    Guys, go to EVERY DAMN DAY FITNESS and see his take on this 21 day diet. Doctor Oz is going to get people hurt.

  • Well all any of us csn really draw from is personal experience and mine is that a strict ketogenic diet was best..I dropped all the weight I needed to and have kept it off. Not to mention the health benefits of regulating my insulin levels.

  • Thank you so much for such an interesting and informative video. It would be great if next time you use special noises the volume were lower on those parts since I was listening with earphones and at these parts it was painful for my ears. Thanks again and take care.

  • This YouTube channel is literally the BEST weight loss community anywhere. I love it.I am also so grateful I found https://tinyurl.com/customsdiet.It helped me not only lose weight but keep it off, hope it helps some others!

  • Dr. Gil can you cover omega 3’s/6s/7s/9s in a future video? I’m vegetarian but still take fish oil because the science appears to be quite definitive on it for health benefits (lowers triglyceride levels and inflammation and cortisol, elevates mood, heals brain and burn injuries faster than usual, though verdict still out on CVD). There are so many acronyms that it makes my head spin. For example, the supplement I take has omega 3s DHA, EPA, DPA, ALA, SDA in it plus omega 6 GLA (is this healthy?). Then my kid’s organic fish oil also has omega 9 Oleic acid and omega 7 palmitoleic acid on top of the regular 3s DHA/EPA. Are all of these scientifically backed and should vegans/vegetarians be 100% supplementing with these from an animal (eg fish) or plant (eg algae)? I know in previous videos you’ve slammed salmon for its saturated fat levels but are omega 3s a big part of that saturated fat? Help!

  • You’re so damn good, keep it up! Clearly delivered, perfect balance of science-based -> viewed through the lens of a normal person. Gave me a good laugh as well��

  • Hi Gil! Thank you for the continuous quality content!
    However, even after watching this video, I still face the uncertainty if this theory applies to insulin resistant, pre-diabetic or diabetic type II people?
    I present several insulin resistant/pre-diabetic signs, I’m already waiting for the lab results prescribed by my endocrinologist.

    Upon hours of research, there are experts who defend, no matter what is your calorie intake, as long as your insulin is constantly at peak due to carbs consumption, you will not be able to lose fat.
    Is calories in-calories out, with constant and monitored adjustment, still applicable to this group of people?

    In the past, I visited an endocrinologist, she completely overlooked every symptom I listed and put my on an extremely low-fat -carb diet (aprox. 1200 calories). Needless to say the adherence was null.

    I don’t necessarily consume too many carbs, perhaps a sugary drink every other day and rice/pasta but in Portugal we do consume a lot of saturated fat, which I believe to be my trigger (I consume meat, mostly red, on average, 2 times a day).

    Anyways, hopefully, you are able to answer my questions, if not, I will still watch all your upcoming videos ahah.
    Thank you and good luck!

  • I am 5 feet 2 inches and 55 kgs, I have two kids age 8 and 5 and I have been doing intermittent fasting for 8 months. It’s become a very normal part of my day. But I don’t seem to be burning the fat on my belly. Do you have any tips on how I can achieve that?

  • Hey guys my journey to losing 80 lbs in 6 months with bridesmaid weight loss I reviewed the top products for me that worked. Hope this helps selfcutssystem.com

  • Just finished reading Fiber Fueled by dr Will Bulsiewicz. According to him the microbiome plays a huge role in this. (Weight loss) Really interesting research coming out on the microbiome. Post biotics (short chain fatty acids) for the win on so many levels! And plant diversity…. (You mentioned this in the video as well) Would be really interested on your take about the microbiome. But can highly recommend reading Fiber Fueled.

  • Amen sir! �� I specially like the last comment about adherence to a diet. It should be done enjoyable and customized for every person since the succes depends of that.
    Amen viejo. Quiero resaltar la toma parte sobre adherencia a la dieta. Debe ser personalizada y diafrutable por la persona d otra forma estamos hablando de la famosa eventual dieta q no sirve a largo plazo.
    Cheers college!

  • Hi… love your work… agree completely with all you are saying… my question is why not address the issue with processed foods? Real food is only as good as it is sourced… so then with process foods why not discuss how the ingredients damage our cellular metabolism…

  • I came across many videos on “healthy eating”, never heard this being said ((use your muscles so that the body will not break them down for extra energy))!! Very inspiring… Many thanks. ����

  • Any chance you can explain how carbs become fat, shouldn’t there be an energy loss during the conversion? It’s just really confusing and it makes no sense that body just real quick turns carbs into fat.

  • I am an Indian and we have adopted a lot of western food habits in our culture lately (mainly unhealthy, processed and junk foods) due to which our generation is suffering from a lot of health issues.
    Studies shows that our ancestors lead a healthy life, had the best food habits and it’s slowly gaining popularity.
    -lot of whole foods, whole grains, veggies, pulses, legumes
    -no processed and refined foods
    -healthier alternatives for sugar that is jaggery, dates
    -cook using healthy oil known as GHEE (which is now marketed around the world as ‘clarified butter’)
    -finish last meal of the day before 7pm
    -active lifestyle (as opposed to our sedentary ones)

    These are some simple things that they followed and the same things are being validated by modern science in different studies

  • Hello, in this paper, they explains fat have a low satiety index compared to carbs and protein but thats probably also linked to high water content and fiber, makes sense to me:
    This NF video about chicken is interesting, altough this meat is not high in fat, it is the most linked to weight gain for known and unknown reasons, cheese also obviously because it is very fat and contains growth hormone especially aged cheese which concentrate milk muck more.

  • Thank you for going over this! I went over calories in a separate YouTube video, and we are in the middle of a weight loss series on our podcast, The Art of Eating: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/is-it-all-about-calories-ep-58/id1451308876?i=1000475807748

    We most recently went over the insulin resistance model too! Funnily enough, we came to a very similar conclusion. It is unfortunate that all “carbs” are lumped in under one umbrella term, because carbs can be great… if you are choosing the right ones��!

    Yet mainstream marketing puts all this flashy advertising together that demonizes all carbs when it is simply untrue.

    Awesome video!

  • Thanks for always being clear and focus on finding what works for you instead of generalizing. Love it. Also, love your alter ego jumping in and wanting the TIPs right away, and then summarizing them:-D

  • In general, nutrient-dense, calorie-dilute diets work. If you have a food addiction or eating disorder, you have additional work to do.

  • Thanks for the weight-loss drive-by. Lots of helpful info. What are your thoughts on caloric density? Watched a vid by Jeff Novick, RD, and he focuses mostly on teaching people about calorie density. It makes a lot of sense. Dr. Greger’s new book also focuses on this. Thoughts?

  • I went vegan almost 11 years ago, for the ethics. And I’m still vegan for the animals. Meanwhile, many years ago, I found out that veganism can have a positive impact also for the planet and for my health. So, in the last few years I adopted a wfpb diet, so I can take care of my gut.

    The problem is that I crave for vegan junk food, loaded with SOS and fried and so on, all the time. I don’t remember to have ever craved for something healthy in my whole life. I know it’s weird… All the people I knew and know, crave for at least some fruit or vegetable. But not me! I thought that after years of eating wfpb, my gut microbiome will start to crave for healthy stuff. But no! It finds the taste of everything that is healthy very awful. I also thought that maybe it’s something genetic (even though it’s not something backed by science). But no! My entire family enjoys healthy food.

    Also, I wish to gain some kilos. But eating healthy, is not helpful at all. =))

    No matter what, I’ll keep eating in a rational way and not in an emotional way because it’s the right choice to make.

  • Thank you for this video. It is one of the best I came across so far not because it mentions things you cannot find elsewhere but because it does it concisely and conclusively, staying short, sweet and funny. I for one am ssoooooo tired of that “carbs are the devil and insulin is your doom” nonsense…

  • It would have been much better if I discovered this specific guide a couple of years back. For 15 days of making use of the weights, I lose 12 lbs There is certainly still need of work outs even only a few times weekly and also the food to consume must be ideal. The result shown to me is awesome. Certainly, this weight is recommended and I do wish this would deliver the results to you too mainly because it did to me. Google can help you to research it. Guide’s name is below.

  • QUESTIONTO DR OZ: Do you VACCINATE your Children Dr OZ?

    After 5 P.M. I’m MR OZ & NO! I DONT VACCINATE my Children

  • Has anyone tried Custokebon Secrets? (just google it) We’ve noticed numerous awesome things about this popular lose weight methods.

  • Do natural popular weight loss methods like Custokebon Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? We’ve heard numerous amazing things about this popular lose weight diet plan.

  • Its still amaze me just how lots of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets (search on google) despite the fact that a lot of people lost lots of weight with it. Thanks to my friend who told me about it. I’ve lost a lot of weight.

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (just google it) help me lost lots of fat? I notice lots of people keep on speaking about this popular weight loss secrets.

  • Dr. Oz promotes healthy eating, s o he does not promote junk food or unhealthy processed flour as found in white bread and white pasta. He deserves kudos for that. But no potatoes and no meat? That is crazy, meat and potatoes is the healthiest possible diet, much better that everything that is shown in this video. Whether chicken, beef, or pork it does not matter. Meat us the essence of a healthy diet and so are potatoes. With that said we must stay away from processed meats such as all deli meats (salami, ham, etc.) and bacon. Processed meats are full of sodium and preservatives, and are super unhealthy.

  • remember folks �� Doc Berg told you not to eat most of the foods that they’ve presented
    Ps: for those who don’t know him, well he’s simply the best

  • Hello there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Simply do a google search engine search. On there you will find a great guidelines about how you can lost a lot of fat. Why don’t you give it a chance? perhaps it is going to work for you too.

  • There are claims that fructose is processed by the liver which is not a good thing hence why keto enthusiasts do not consume fruits. Any evidence on the effect of fruits to our bodies? can we live without fruits? the nutrients in the fruits?

  • Its still surprises me, just how a lot of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets, despite the fact that a lot of people get good result with it. Thanks to my work buddy who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I have lost tons of weight with it without starving myself.

  • Another plant based diet that can lead to massive weight loss is an all potato diet, followed by a whole food plant based diet with lots of variety. Penn Jillette lost more than 100 pounds. Kevin Smith (the director) did too and lost a lot. One married couple doing this diet have a YouTube channel called “Krocks in the Kitchen.”

  • Big surprise now Dr Oz is telling us not to at breakfast. He says don’t eat in the AM unless you are hungry. He wants us to morning fast. Will he ever make up his mind? And Oprah is another one every diet is the best diet in the world until the next diet. She is just lazy and can’t stop earing. She stays slim for a few months not the best spokesperson for ANY diet.

  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have to try not to fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diet plans are a risk for your health, especially ones that seriously limit your every day nutritional intake. Many of these fad diets work for a short period of time and then the benefits decrease after a while. You should look up Custokebon Secrets on google since it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • I have been doing a Keto Diet for 8 weeks and I have wept with joy nearly every day. I have lost over 30 pounds and am metabolically healthy and thin, but I read that it helped depression, and I have had chronic depression for 5 years. For the first time in my entire life, I’m actually happy. Don’t give up guys.

  • 6:00…. one of the most ignorant statements I’ve ever heard.. “animals, right… they get protein from the vegetables.. the grass they eat”. YES, that little part is true, but humans cannot do that, because they don’t have a RUMEN, nor the proper digestive enzymes to absorb protein from plants. He’s standing there dispensing half truths, like a fool.

  • There are three factors in weight reduction exercise, diet, and motivation. One place I found that successfully combines these is the FatBurningDiet9.blogspot.com, without a doubt the no.1 diet that I’ve heard of. look at the before and after pics and unbelievable testimonials.?

  • Wendy has an autoimmune disease, Grave’s Disease, and these foods will absolutely cause INFLAMMATION in her body,. In the Autoimmune Protocol, or AIP, the gluten, grains, beans/legumes and soy shown here makes autoimmune conditions worse. I know, I had Grave’s Disease and healed it with nutrition. Not all meat is bad for you. Commercially raised meat, the kind found in grocery stores, raised in pens and fed GMO feed should NEVER be eaten. This is the meat the gov’t (and others) do all the studies on, showing how bad it is, and I agree. But PASTURED meat, 100% grass-fed and grass-finished (no grains ever) is extremely healthy and is high in omega 3 fats like wild fish.

  • BTW my grandmother is 90. Eats everything and anything under the sun. Takes care of my cousin. So it’s true. Taking care of another whether its human or pets can definitely help you live longer.

  • Mansanto’s poison is in the vegetables, leafy greens, fruit and grains which also are contaminated with fungi
    Animals are full of antibiotics, grains instead of grass etc. Water has fluoride and chlorine. Excito toxins, Aspartame msg and corn syrup in too many foods. The worst food is in this country. We are food for the cancer industry. Let’s not forget vaccinations. My parents came from a country where fasting, totally vegan every holy day, and there were many, and meat that came from animals that ate their normal food, not factory farmed. Vaccine only when traveling to another country. They lived into their 90’s and into their hundreds and still worked and walked everywhere.

  • Ah kids. You will soon find out that veganism is not sustainable diet. It will take a few years to make this realization. In the beginning you will feel good, but then you will start running into deficiencies and start feeling tired. Never in the history of the human evolution have we ever been vegan or even vegetarians, unless the meat wasn’t available. Good luck to you all!

  • Question for anyone who has been doing IF for a long time: During my feeding window (I am doing 16/8 or 18/6 every day depending upon how I am feeling), should I be tracking my macros and calories for best results?

    Thanks in advance for responding!:)

  • Woman..be careful not eating meat..chicken..fish. I ended up with severe anemia. My doctor makes me eat salmon 2x a week and some chicken.

  • If you look at all successful weight loss, the #1 reason they succeed is not what type of food it is, not what “program” they joined. It ultimately was because they were 100% consistent, because they could do it for life. Since most diets are contrary to our lizard brain nature, they will fail most of us and the data clearly shows this. I love when people say “just cut out “processed” foods” and all is well. The truth is, most people LOVE processed foods because it hits those places that not only satisfy our lizard brain and reward center, it still has nutrition and obvious calories our bodies use. Considering how fat America is, what is worse? Eating “processed” food if it helps lose weight and saves your life OR temporarily eating food we hate or don’t naturally enjoy to lose weight for a few weeks, only to quit and gain it back?

  • My dad had me at 49. I’m 32 years old now and my old man is still going strong. He said I kept him going as a father. Most people his age now are not looking great.

  • I like your channel, I’ve been following you since a week. This ebook could be very helpfull too on abs workout and fat burning, it has helped many people and I hope it will be usefull to many more persons ���� https://payhip.com/b/vcLH. Keep on posting your interesting videos. Thank you…

  • if you really want to lose weight fast try this tea you can lose more than a pound a day and it is all natural and detoxes. http://bit.ly/redtea1183

  • No b12, the examples are low calorie, you can’t fit 5 cups of veg into a day unless you stick to it if you go back to a normal diet you’ll gain a ton of weight because you’re used to eating to ton of food and will constantly feel hunger and look to get rid of it.

  • One of the most universal factors to most successful weight loss diets is eating foods with a high nutrient density. It’s the cornerstone to what makes a diet work. What are nutrient dense foods? Foods that have a high nutritional content per calorie are nutritionally dense. Most nutrient dense foods include: vegetables, lean meat, fish and poultry, eggs, avocado and fresh vegetable juice

  • This video has great information, but I am confused about the best diet plan which i should use, only because I have never taken any. Anyone tried using the Custokebon Secrets? I’ve heard several people mention extraordinary things about Custokebon Secrets.

  • I didn’t feel it answered the title ��It was like asking how long is a piece of string? The title was a bit misleading. I’ll watch some more of your videos as I’m sure they will be very informative.

  • I have just started intermittent fasting…..I am doing a 16:8 fast….My fasting window is from 10.30 pm at night to 3 pm on the next day….and eating window is 3 pm to 10.30 pm at night…is it okay?

  • Intermittent fasting is dangerous in long term, it can down and fall of insulin, leading to severe hypoglycemia.This repetitive high and low can either cause damage to pancreas or to body cells or any other organs.

  • Wow, kind of hard to listen to what you are saying when all I see are hands and arms flapping all over the screen. Sorry but it is distracting.

  • At the end of the day, its always total calories consumed that is paramount to weight loss. If your TDEE is 2000 calories a day and your consuming 2200 calories a day on IF you will gain weight Period….

  • Hi Autumn, I am loving your videos. You are so passionate and that’s what I love! My husband and I are about to start our fasting journey and I was wondering what is best time of day to weigh yourself? Also should you weigh yourself every day? ��

  • Autumn, I’ve been intermittent fasting for 131 days now. At least 18 hrs a day plus working out. I’m a ectomorph that has the most problems with my stomach. What can I do or can there be a special way to eat to target that area mostly? I know there’s no such thing as spot reducing but I’m sure u know what I mean

  • Hi Autumn
    I just started alternate day fasting.
    I put half a lime in my water in the mornings just because I have been doing it for years.
    Does this kick me out of ketosis?

  • I’ve done 123 days straight so far. Atleast 18 hrs a day. I’m down 31 lbs. Might not seems like a lot but I’m a tall ectomorph that gains mostly in my midsection/upper body. I still have a ways to go to get the flat stomach I want. I also do weight training and sprinting a couple days a week. IT’S A MARATHON, NOT A RACE and it’s a lifestyle, not a diet

  • Im a pretty healthy weight (127) I just simply want to loose stomach fat and even if I loose weight I’ll still be a healthy weight

  • I’m a 17.5 st lard arse and just started fasting today. 30 minutes gone, only 15.5 hours to go and I’m already clucking like a smackhead.

  • The audio sound when anything pops up on the screen is really annoying.
    Also you basically speak only from the left channel (left speaker), which seems little odd.
    Nevertheless I liked the content, thanks for this video and all the info:)

  • My friend told me about a diet plan “fetching tuti space” (Google it) and how he shed 14 lbs through it! I didn’t find any good results from trying other weight loss diet plans around. Nonetheless, this plan made amazing things on my weight..

  • People think that carbs mean processed food, but that is not the case. A calorie is still a calorie but one food is not the other. This stupid idea that a unit of measure is not the same based a circumstances is just moronic. Wholefoods are the way to life better and healthier, nothing beats that.

  • I hate to unloke videos. I unliked this. I subscribed to you too. The audio was louder in one. I dont feel you answered the title. It was misleading

  • My question is the last time I ate was 11 in the morning the next time I can eat is 2 in the morning isn’t it so bad to eat late and sleep

  • Ok-I’m eating vegetarian-but limiting my dairy to a little cheese and occasional yogurt. So, what would be your macro-suggestion and what foods for at least 125g of protein in under 2800 cal??? Help anyone??

  • ive been fasting for over a month… I completely stopped losing weight the past 2 weeks its really fucking depressing because this is the first thing that worked for me ever.

  • I’ve performed three separate day fasts on three consecutive weeks, water only. I went running on two of the three days, in the middle of July. I lost a grand total of… ZERO pounds. I swear on my life. I’ve tried looking up similar information and found nothing.

  • Hello: Just found you your really very helpful thank you being on this forum.
    I am new to all this been 2 week 16/8 and don’t think i’ve seen results. A little discouraged. Also thinking 12/12 might work better for my lifestyle. Can anyone provide some feedback concerning 12/12. Traveling international for 2 weeks in 3 world country -feeling like won’t be able to maintain… You thought Autumn

  • I wish I would experience weight loss and less bloating but I have DEFINITELY experienced much better sleep and I’m far less moody. I’m still experiencing anxiety but the sleep and mood benefits are very noticeable and were immediate for me.

  • I need help with nutrient timing but I can’t get your program. Can you do a video about the specific things in your program for those who can’t get it. Also why is that no one uses examples of specific food, that would help to

  • I have a bit of a problem with how superficially you dealt with some of this.
    Let’s look at how the human body is supposed to access food. It evolved over many millennia, from a “hunter gatherer” environment. Humans ate when they could, and what energy they did not need in the moment was stored as reserve energy, i.e. fat, which their bodies could burn for fuel when food sources were scarce. All foods were natural, truly natural, hunted, grown, picked, etc. I do not think there is any scientific debate about how the body stores food as fat, and retrieves it for fuel. Once the human body uses up the glycogen stores, it goes to its stored fat for energy.

    Fast forward to the 20th Century and beyond.

    So what has screwed up this whole process is the relatively sudden availability of abundant food and especially highly refined carbohydrate food products filled with sugar, which throw a giant monkey wrench in the bodies metabolic works. It is simply not normal to eat 16 hours a day, every day, stuffing our faces with “foods” which have basically been invented to make us even more hungry and play havoc with our bodies, especially sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

    Before the 1900’s, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other metabolic ailments barely existed in society on a relative basis. The very best diets are those that provide food for the body in the way it was meant to function. We only need about a tsp of sugar in our entire blood stream to function and they key to weight loss, weight gain, hunger, etc IMHO is controlling our blood sugar. Fats cause no rise in blood sugar when ingested, protein very little, which leaves a wide array of carbohydrates (unnecessary for human life, BTW) which have a very wide range of glycemic effect. So a more accurate statement would be to say it is the control of the “quality” of carbohydrates, not simply carbohydrates per se. The effects of eating several ounces of turnip greens is wildly different from eating several ounces of high fructose corn syrup.

    I don’t think it can be disputed scientifically that controlling blood sugar is the bottom line key to weight and metabolic health, and some methods are much, much better at doing this than others.

  • You offer great information BUT please check or invest in a better mic. It is very difficult to hear what you are saying. Thank you so much��

  • I just discovered you and gosh I really like your channel, you make everything clear and easy to understand. Thank you very much ♡

  • I don’t like that she isn’t saying how this doesn’t work for everyone. Intermittent fasting is over hyped. Yes it works, for some people. Just like how not eating will make you lose weight…

    I eat when I’m hungry and have lost weight and am in a super healthy weight category without even thinking about it. People should give in to their hunger so that they aren’t binging. Yes some people can intermittent fast, but it is very possible to cause an eating disorder as well. There is no awareness here about the negatives.

  • I have done IF for three weeks, but i didn’t lose any weight. Can I change my diet from 8:16 to 6:18 randomly cuz I dot really have routing hours for eating.
