Dieters who lost 30 pounds and maintained their weight loss for more than a year clocked 12,000 steps per day (compared with 9,000 steps for normal-weight adults and 6,500 for overweight and obese adults), according to 2019 research published in the journal Obesity. If you’re not at 12,000 yet, don’t worry: “Your goal should be to slowly increase your total steps each day,” Holland says. 5 Weight-Loss Numbers You Should Know.

September 5, 2019. Weight Loss Goals. Daily or weekly weigh-ins can be beneficial and it’s important to keep in mind that sustainable weight loss involves focusing on other numbers too. Scale numbers can be misleading and they don’t always reflect weight-loss progress.

Below are five things to keep in. If you’re on a weight-loss plan, you may think numbers on the scale are the only ones you need to know, but there are other important ones as well. The number you get represents the minimum number of calories you need to eat daily to maintain your current weight.

Researchers believe that you have to burn roughly 3,500 calories to lose a pound of fat, so to lose 1 pound a week, a safe rate of weight loss, you’d need to diet or exercise your way to a 500-calorie deficit every day. When it comes to weight loss, these are the numbers that truly matter day will let you know if you’re reaching the 500-calorie daily deficit you need to lose about a.

Daily weight fluctuation is normal. The average adult’s weight fluctuates up to 5 or 6 pounds per day. It all comes down to what and when you eat, drink, exercise, and even sleep. *It goes without saying that you should talk to your doctor before you start a new fitness regimen (but we’’re saying it anyway).

4. Find the Magic Number of Calories to Cut This is a littler trickier for people looking to lose 40+ pounds than for someone trying to drop 5 or 10 pounds, says Melton.

It never works out that perfectly (people never seem to lose exactly the predicted amount of fat per week that the numbers indicate) for reasons unimportant to this booklet but I don’t want to get into that.

  • You are PT’s, not MDs, nutritionists or dietitians. Weight loss is incredibly complicated. While these you may have good intentions or you may have had luck with these rules, you are not experts in the field. Please stick to P.T. and do not add to the deluge of weight loss bull shit.

  • Hi there, I’ve just watched the video. I would be interested in investing the £2.99 for the macro tracking download app thingy. However, when I was reading some of the information describing what I needed to enter into it I was lost. For example, I don’t have a clue what my BMI, BMR, macronutrient targets, etc etc are nor do I know how I would find out! This is all double dutch to me. Plus, I go into a sleepy daze when adding and subtracting is mentioned. I seem to go into mental block with numbers my brain hurts! ��. I don’t fancy taking night classes in Arithmetic either just so that I can go on a diet!

    I cant believe I am so negative just now! I thought this diet was simple: stop eating carbs, sugar and crap and the weight would fall off! Sadly, for me, far from it. I’m even drinking ACV twice a day!!! ������.

  • When it says eg. ‘120g protein’. Does it mean 120g of chicken breast or 120g of pure protein within that chicken meat? 

    So there is 27g of protein in 100g of chicken. So you can eat 400g of chicken per day?

  • Thanks great quality very informative watched till the end about broken hearts Jesus heals the broken hearts �� if we let Him Isaiah 61:1

  • For me, Intermittent Fasting just fit my lifestyle. I use the 16:8 method because I’m not hungry when I wake up, I love drinking black coffee and I prefer to have larger meals later in the day instead of small meals spread throughout the entire day. For me, I was able to drop 160 lbs while also packing on a decent amount of muscle mass. I’ll probably use IF forever…

  • Because my cholesterol was high due to lack of self-regulation ������ I was flexitarian for 2 months and then went vegan for 1 month and in that short amount of time my cholesterol dropped 79 points. I was flexitarian before all this for a couple years but it was small portions and mostly vegan meals really, and I lost 100 pounds. It’s just that I had gotten off track, fell off the wagon, regressed. LoL ����

  • I use to weight close to 600 pounds and tried every weight loss diet/system out there. Nothing worked. It wasn’t until I acknowledge that the weight wasn’t the problem, just a symptom of the problem and I started going inside myself to face the trauma, neglect and pain. Once I started on this road, as hard and painful as it was, I am happy to say that the weight simply evaporated for the most part on its own. Four years in, the weight is still off, the struggle is still there but my outlook towards it has changed from that of self-loathing and frustration to a sense of self-awareness, adventure and peace. Good luck and love to all for whom this is still a struggle. ��

  • Hey so your calculator has me at 2400 cals 120 Grams of protein. Is the calories accurate I’m trying to lose weight. I’ve been on keto for several months now. Burn down a lot of fat and put on hella muscle

  • This is an important subject: in 2015, My previous Doctor diagnosed me as Obese, but I thought my extra weight was from inflammation! After seeing a homeopathic practitioner, I lost 20lbs (down to 180 from 200 for a 6’2″ man)
    I told the doctor (the best in my town of New Bern, NC) that I was having zygotes emerging from my epidermis occasionally; I asked him if he would order a PCR DNA analysis of a specimen, but he only said what is a PCR assey. After my explanation and note that the CDC can perform a PCR DNA analysis, he said “Oh, we don’t do anything with the CDC.
    I THINK HE Knew what was going on, and was waiting for an Ameobic Abscess to order Gastrointestinal Sugery for “an abscess”
    Thank goodness I am healed by someone who cares! T

  • Vegetables are the best food for losing weight. Starchy foods are harder to digest so make sure you eat starchy foods with a lot of water. You could add broth to starchy foods and don’t add salt keep it simple. Add spices if you want flavor. I like paprika and root based herbs. Unions are healthy too. Oh and flour is horrible for you don’t eat it if you want to lose weight. Remember fat and celestial turns into sugar in your body. Your stomach is the size of your first so don’t eat more than you can hold in one hand. I eat small amounts of food through out the day and walk a lot. If I can’t walk outside I do something physical at home. I have a rare movement disorder so it’s hard for me to move. I also, love yams. I put green onions on my yams with a pinch of salt. Very rarely do I put butter on anything.

  • The Keto Calculator has never worked for me, it is FRUSTRATING. Each time, I enter info, hit ‘Calculate’ it takes me back to ‘how active are you on daily basis’. No matter what I enter, each time hitting calculate returns me to it???

  • Why repeatedly showing these few books (and without explanation) as if you are promoting them…. some of them are completely bogus

  • High hopes for this method! My plain brown rice (Texmati) is a 17?!? And here I thought it was a good grain. Farro made the cut though. Thanks for the education!

  • please help me doctor Oz. I’m from Portugal and our metric values are in meters/centimeters. I’m 1,77cm (i think it is a normal heigh) but my weight is 47Kg

    i know 1 pound is 0.4Kg so 47kg is 117pounds. what can i do to gain weight? I’m not anorethic, but i hate to eat. i don’t like sports and i can’t swim. i have Marfan syndrome and i have a problem in my heart (ascending aorta dilatation) not too serius though. PLEASE HELP ME!

  • The Problem: Food Industry operates on the *profit motive*. Profiteers manipulate public opinion through advertising & pour sugar into foods to maximize $ Capitalism is the problem!

  • Unfortunately we don’t teach our kids self control at school so they grow up ignorant to the benefits, Sugar And Salt people….. it has a balance, drink more water, do things that are common sense and don’t be lazy ( excluding obviously people with actual reasons )

  • well thank you very much for the information also a bigups for the website it’s actually very helpful and informative great efforts there tho!

  • I can’t find this answer anywhere on YouTube or google! I just started keto and I just want to know do you have to eat high fat?? For example I ate what I was suppose to today with using the carb master app. But it says I can still have 40 more grams of fat!

  • One huge factor is in our foods and our genetic seeds we grow..guton gut is real. Poor people can t afford health food. And sugar is an addictive drug….for lots like fighting alcoholism and not aware with food additives….and big business needs to clean up its creed and think of the children….quit…
    messing with our DNA.,,,trust me no wants to be obese..open your research and open your minds

  • I recently lost 30 lbs, but I really didn’t want to, I got really sick and was in bed for about 3 week barely getting up and eating about 400 calories a day.

  • Only drink water for 12 or more hours in a day, or try fasting for a day or two, again only drink water, maybe black coffee or tea, a couple teaspoons of salt per day will help too

  • @darkinmysilence I am a nursing student, I would absolutely worry that you may have a thyroid or cancer problem. You should go to the doctor and be checked.

  • I used this calculator and it suggested me to take:
    103g of fat/49g of protein/20g of carbs
    The problem is that doesn’t give 75% fat/ 25% protein and 5% of carbs as it should be in a ketogenic diet

  • Losing weight is simple, reduce caloric intake by planning ahead. Carbs are not bad.
    If you are not losing weight then you are eating too many calories.
    The reason the lady lost weight was she stopped eating bread and didn’t add anything to replace it = caloric deficit.
    Eating healthy is a different story, but losing weight is math, not voodoo

  • A little confused because using the referenced keto calculator has me eating 167 grams of protein and only 116 grams of fat…wouldn’t that still cause an insulin spike? Those macros sound much more like the Atkins diet, no?

  • I cut carbs and lost 20 lbs. Unfortunately I want to lose 15 more but I seem to have stopped at 20. Do you have any tips on losing additional weight?

  • I quit sugar and processed food, ate no bread, rice and pasta, lots of low carb veges, good quality protein (grass fed meat and pasture raised chicken, 3 pieces of fruit per day, seeds, nuts, and lost 15 lbs and 8 inches from my waist, in 7 weeks. Lowered blood pressure and cholesterol, feel great. Definitely worth making the change!

  • The problem is really simple. People eat too many carbohydrates and they eat too frequently….add some resultant lethargy and you’ve got a recipe for obesity.

  • I’m almost in my mid sixties, weigh 165 pounds at 6 feet, my secret for staying thin is not having enough money for food �� and drinking loads of Tim Horton’s coffee ☕️

  • There are other extenuating reasons for weight gain. My weight = 24/7 care of my elderly parent topped by ten years of hypothyroidism, fatigue and muscle pain from other, more serious autoimmune diseases. We have been housebound five years. I was thin before and exercised daily. I have little ability to exercise or energy to either. Not ready to deal with my weight until after my parent passes and I want my parent to live well and feel loved for many more years. I look forward to the time when I can concentrate on my life and health but I also dread that time because I love my parent….my parent is my focus and my priority…..the only missing ingredient in my life is exercise…….without it, I gain. With exercise I have a lean body……not excuses just temporary reasons.

  • Trying to work out the macros but it keeps giving me an error. I’ll check it again later, might just be a temporary fault. Thanks for sharing great video!

  • I thought the same thing: panicky because I lost weight so fast! I started South Beach’s low glycemic diet (even starting at stage 2 instead of stage 1) and the weight just fell off! We were out-of-town for 2 months, so I did not have clothes available as I went from Size 14 slacks to Size 10! Even went down to Size 8 by the end, but now in Size 10 and have stayed right there ��……less bread and carbs and just eat more Vegs than meat.

  • Question. Your macro Calculator doesn’t give me the standard 75/20/5% breakdown. What it calculated for me was 60/35/5%. Should go for if? It decreased my fat and increased my protein by 15% for both.

  • wait I dont understand if you’re supposed to eat a certain amount of calories everyday but want to lose weight how do you do that when u can only eat a certain amount of calories without eating less or changing the percentages of macros

  • This rule would eliminate oatmeal from your diet. Oatmeal is inexpensive and has proven to be very valuable to health, especially heart health.

    My next thought is, like most ‘elimination diets’, I know you lowered your total caloric intake each day. If you followed this rule, but consumed the same amount of calories as you did before following the rule, you would not have lost weight.
    My master’s is in foods and nutrition. Elimination diets, even ones that increase your fiber, which is good, always ‘work’ because you eliminate higher calories foods; usually either carbs or fats the focused food to eliminate. Now, the exception to this is putting your body into a state of ketosis, which is damaging for long-term application. However, even in ketosis, some studies report people still consume fewer calories, which leads to weight loss.
    It seems that ‘mental food games’ make eating less a bit more fun. It also SELLS book, programs, and specialty food items.

  • I’ve read an article that says the amount of calories in a specific ingredient changes according to the cooking method you use.

    How do I know how many calories are in a food after cooking it?

    Just an example: let’s say I make a burger and melt some cheese on the top of it, I know how many calories are in the cheese raw, but how do i know the amount that it has after melted?

  • No offence, but why does everyone continue using audience tracks? (or whatever it’s called) Especially if it distracts your own voice.

  • Will this work for me?
    Im a type 1 diabetic, skinny
    Need to gain muscle mass while keeping carbs(sugar) as low as possible

  • this seemed to be a good video but, I never finished watching it because of the irritating unnecessary background music, when the important thing should be to be able to listen to the video without any distractions. What value dd the music add?

  • My only concern is that im eating to much protein. When i watch other people’s videos they are saying i need higher ratios of fat then the calculator is giving me.

  • I became so fired up to test the dietary regimen. My eating routine and also my consistency of few physical exercises was not modified and also change. Over a period of a month, I dropped about 6 pounds. The tactic has let me consumed less and getting full is a lot a lot quicker. Find a right guide is not easy, you can research on Google. Guide’s name is under.

    good luck

  • I’m a Registered Dietitian and I tell my patients to go on a low STARCH, low SUGAR diet. Just like you are saying. I also tell them to measure their portions. Use those calculations on 1/2 cup servings.

  • I don’t follow this diet but sometimes I inadvertently do the fasting method of my partner, which is eating only within the 8 hour period and we eat twice at 10am and 6pm. It actually feels pretty good and is much easier than I would have thought.

  • The paragraph describing your channel needs an edit.

  • Dr. Eric Berg and Dr. Ken Berry. I lost 40lbs in 6 months eating healthy. No bread,pasta,rice or potatoes or refined sugar (nothing white…turns into sugar) No acid reflux or joint pain. (53 yr old Female).

  • @impbev I have an almost no carb lifestyle. I eat lean meats and vegetables. The protein keeps me full so I really don’t even think about eating cheeto’s or donuts.

  • Calories from what??? Fat, carbohydrates, or protein? Your body metabolizes each differently. Look up the A to Z diet study. Or how the fatty acid cycle works. Calories are NOT created equal.

  • I can’t get your keto calculator to work. I even refreshed the page. I enter in all the information and after I click calculate it just goes back up to the middle of the page as if I didn’t enter in some information. This is VERY frustrating. Luckily I found another keto calculator online. It worked just fine. I wish I knew how to covert those percentages to GRAMS though of food. And I need to find the best foods to get me to 69% fat, 26% protein and 4% carbs. I find that pecans, just 1/4 are four carbs. Even my flavored bottles of water are six carbs each. I worked hard in the yard today for several hours without eating. I ate a good meal last night, 4 pieces of bacon, one small pork chop, one small 100 calorie piece of salmon, butter, mayo for the condiment for the pork. Then later I found a five ounce bag of pork rinds I had forgotten I had. I ate maybe half the bag. Pork rinds seem to be a great way to get fat. I don’t really care for them and I’d eagerly eat corn chips, pretzels or any other snack chip, but well they are crunchy. I drank like 46 ounces of lemonade. I need some stevia too.

  • Why someone should eat more protein than fat on keto? + I know that the proteins must be 0.8 grams for lean body mass. I really don’t get the fact of eating more protein than fat

  • Has anyone asked yet?? I have always LOVED the ‘Bob And Brad’ Theme Song! Who in the world composed the song? Who is singing? It really grows on you…….

  • The problem is most doctors don’t have a clue how to treat obesity or diabetes. If you want one who does look up Dr. Jason Fung. He is a real doctor who has decades of success in curing diabetes within the Canadian medial system. He is not a quack but you can get that impression at first glance.

  • I’m glad you made a video about this because although it’s very basic, most people don’t know this and it’s sad!!! Thanks for teaching the basics guys ��������������

  • What the media is telling is that MOST of the food in Canada are GMO, heavily loaded with toxic chemicals and sugar.
    Also, avoid drinking tap water. It is loaded with fluoride.

    As long as you are eating ONLY organic food, you have nothing to worry about.

  • @darkinmysilence If you are losing 50lbs in 5 months and haven’t changed your diet or exercise, you may want to tell a doctor. Might be a medical cause.

  • Pretty ignorant corporate sponsored pile of FUD… CR results in lower metabolism… bad for weight loss… furthermore, insulin spikes are the REAL ISSUE… Metabolic syndromes rampant and as Jason Fung has adequately demonstrated with hundreds of diabetics, fasting is phenomenally successful in reversing metabolic syndrome… you are a tool. I was sooo hoping for clarity, not corporate bullcrap

  • If a person limits their calories to 1,000 per day then why would you need a keto diet? A person can lose weight on a regular diet at 1,600 calories a day, a 1,000 calories is not much food and it seems people would break they’er diets a lot faster. Just curious because i have started the keto and have had no results at 15 carbs a day.

  • So I didn’t get the 5 to 1 reference. Carbs divided by fiber should be 5 or less. Got that. But the 5 to 1 rule is not clear to me. But thanks! I’m mid-fifties and for the first time in my entire life (other than pregnancy) I’m getting rounder stomach. And I do lots of ab work. I’m going to try this starting right now.

  • Im in day 4 of Keto and I’ve been following a special diet program that i’ve paid for. When looking at the carbs ratio it sits at 10% or maybe a few tenths of a percent higher even though everyone says you should be getting 5%. I have not yet hit the Keto flu which many say comes only after one or two days which concerns me. Am I doing something wrong? I’ve been following the diet to almost 100%. Is this something to be concerned about or should i be happy that i’ve not reached the keto flu yet or maybe never will? Or could it have to do with weight and height?

  • Great info, but that background music is SO DISTRACTING to me. I can’t concentrate on what you are saying. It would be better for me if you turned it down or off. But I gave you a thumbs up because of the info and effort. ��

  • This was the only thing that gave me straight answers on wtf everything is. I’ve been going through videos and websites and they would just say something else that I would have to look up and idk it was a whole process so thank you.

  • Wow. This is hands dont the best video on how to count macros! Thank you so much for breaking it down and making it easy to understand!

  • My pasta that I thought was low carb, pea protein and assorted veggies is a 10 according to this formula. My other so called healthy low carb pastas are in the 8-9 range. No more pasta for me ): Great information guys!

  • Can you guys learn to just speak English glue clothes and what is all this stuff yours are saying explained what it means some of us don’t know not everybody

  • they want to sell you these long term treatments to line their pockets over time. without truly addressing the root cause. they’ll tell you your problem is genetic because then they get a blank cheque. i think there is something wrong with the genetics of the media and why it continues to lie and deceive instead of inform. it is ruining society.

  • Everything I read on Keto involves fasting. I have tried fasting and I just can’t do it. So will I not lose weight if I don’t fast? Please if there’s anyone out there that does not fast, please please let me know if you’ve lost weight.

  • Root cause is addiction. We need to put more money into treating this like drugs and alcohol. Rehab centers,outreach counseling, 12 step programs, easier access the help with medial issues such as diabetes. Government needs to play apart changing our food supply. Would it be ok if we had a drug house on every corner like we have with fast food. So it has to be a team effort to change

  • I always ate everything whole wheat, but now I have IBS-D. I have a wheat intolerance and an egg intolerance now. Too much fiber, and I am in trouble. I eat a balance of protein, carbs and fat with every meal now.

  • @jimmytube177 thats true, but most t.v type education sessions, dont really want to have to much info at once.
    this is a really condensed speech. thats why hes talking so fast becaus he has a time limit for his time slot on t.v. he didn’t mention food on purpos, he just wanted to make a very quick point.

  • OK I’m starting day one tomorrow…done all my shopping..so please someone tell me how much fat a day I need I’m 302lbs 5’5 an right now very little exercise.an should I be taken collagen

  • Hi,I am doing it wrong, no sugar,no carbs,only veggies and meat/fat and only twice reached keto in my urine the rest is negative,I started in mid December lost about 12 pounds,I have cravings,it’s hard to get into ketosis? Any suggestion?
    Never drink sodas,no coffee, only herbal tea,and roasted chicory root coffee,I can not eat fish I am allergic to it

  • I looked for the 5:1 ratio on labels i.e. low sugar instant oatmeal and flour tortillas and found 29gm:1gm. Isn’t 29 grams about 1oz or 2 tbsp? OMG! I would never eat 2tbsp of sugar but I was doing that multiple times per day unknowingly. No wonder I’ve been having hypoglycemia. Thanks for making me aware.

  • Wow this was so helpful. I love the way he explains things and how he uses animations. I never want my belly to look like that! Total motivation to be healthy!

  • This is the most helpful, intelligent sight I’ve found on keto (including the very helpful comments). Especially explaining the complexity of macros.

  • Eat mostly fruits and vegetables raw Nuts/seeds Exercise Sleep Hydrate yourself, 3L or more a day. Me, I still don’t trust fluoride, so..really do your homework properly(not just on fluoride) and look at both points.
    And as you can see I didn’t mention meat, milk, and other crap.
    And dont do these things, dont

  • Like he toned what does that like some of us don’t know what that is like explain what you’re talkin about what does it mean hello

  • hola Dr. Oz felicitaciones por su programa quiero que me ayude tengo manchas de sol en toda mi cara como podré quitarmelas e hecho de todo y no se me quitan.Gracias

  • If proteins are 46% ketogenic and fat is zero percent why do you recommend more protein than fat? Atkins was a high protein diet, keto is low carb, high fat, modest protein (<20% calories from proteins)

  • “Obesity is a chronic disease… you’ll need to find a treatment you can stay on, pretty much forever.” A lot of interesting points in this video.

    Do the new guidelines outline 100% abstinence from added sugar?
    Sugar should be treated like the drug it is, and maybe companies should have to label their products with the dangers like tobacco companies do.

    Growing up in Canada (but mostly anywhere else as well) we spend a lifetime of eating sweats, junk food, chocolate etc and thinking of it as food or a “treat” rather than poison.
    It would be a lot easier to cut it out of everyone’s diet if we were all educated on the dangers of this drug during childhood.

  • he forgets the most important part of losing weight, a calorie deficit. You can follow all of his tips but if you don’t have a calorie deficit at the end of the day you won’t lose weight.

  • make healthy food cheaper, expose the impacts of processed food, stop false/misleading advertisement that makes people think some processed foods like cereal is healthy, teach alll doctors nutrition, limit additives that make food addictive, stop high fructose sugar use

  • Dr. Oz, here is the easiest way to lose weight. No eating after 6pm. Feed from a salad plate. Eat greens, veggies and fruit over meats. EAT SLOWLY. Give your brain a chance to know you have eaten enough. Dont snack is the only DONT I have.

  • I really like the comment, just make a U-Turn. It was so true! Changing your eating habits are not a big deal, you just fix it and move on. Very motivating:-) Thanks!

  • This is making my head spin:(

    I just did went to the site and did my macros… but this is too scientific for me… i love this diet but the talk of counting and tracking is making me not wanna do it because i feel I’ll fail. Gonna keep researching a bit.

  • I became so enthusiastic to take the diet weight. My diet weight as well as my frequency of several physical exercises wasn`t modified and also change. In only a short time of 30 days, I already shed 6 lbs. When using this process, I did observe that I consumed food less and filled up quicker. Find a right weight is not easy, you can research on Google. Weight program’s name is Peyton Huno†az
    good luck

  • Oatmeal is my main morning meal. I do eat peas and corn, but no bread, pasta maybe once a month, and I hover at 180. I go love me the sugar straight out: ice cream especially. Also need to move more. ��

  • Thank you Dr.OZ i have lost 28lbs i am overweight at 324lbs and i’m only 23, And with your just 10lbs has help me a lot. Thanks so much, You are saving my life.

  • That way of eating is more realistic, but those with insulin resistance or already diabetic they need to wean away from as many carbohydrates as possible. A diabetes diagnosis basically means about 50% of your beta cells in the pancreas are gone.

  • Why are physical therapists discussing nutrition? I guess I’ll visit a registered dietitian’s site to look for knee strengthening exercises.

  • All this information is going to help a lot of people. Your doing a great job Dr. and it´s going back to you as good karma. Saludos desde Venezuela!

  • A lot of diet infotainment today focuses on a lot of data without any context, and the context is everything for nutrition and dieting. Take the recommend 2000 calorie diet that EVERYONE should adhere to… if you choose to live a more sedentary lifestyle (not that you should, but it happens), 2000 calories is a hell of a lot of food.

  • Thanks for the video, I’ve been doing 16:8 fasting for the last year. When I first start I removed all sugar and carbs from my diet and did the warrior diet which was hard but WORKED!!! Couldn’t sustain that diet because it was much easier eating the same food my kids were eating then preparing different meals all the time. So I now do 16:8 and it doesn’t dramatically help with weight loss, but I feel good.

  • I’ve been tracking my macros for a while now and one thing I’ve noticed is that I’m on a cut so I have my calories set at 1,500 calories. I shoot for my protein goal everyday but at the end of the day I’m still under my carbs and fats while still being under my 1,500 calories (but not by much). So my question is, do I need to hit EVERY single macro or could I be fine with just meeting my protein goal while staying under my carbs and fats for the day as long as I don’t go over my 1,500 calories?

    Note: Even though I’m low on carbs and fats throughout the day I don’t feel any hungry.

  • I was eating unlimited fruit on WW. Turned out the body digests the fructose just like any other sugar which sent my blood sugar soaring and crashing. Using their 5:1, a banana = 10!

  • This doctor is just another drug pushing clown! He’s clueless!
    Obesity is NEVER genetic it’s an addiction and nothing else ever!
    People addicted will eat anything like drunks will drink anything.
    The foods they eat are packed with sugars and salt to insure they all over eat.
    Most people just eat the wrong garbage food and become obese but a “true” obese person will always be obese because they are addicted.
    Doctors are all drug pushers so don’t believe anything they try to teach you!


  • I never had a weight problem in my entire life in spite of the fact that I struggled with hypothyroidism. Always worked out with a personal trainer and ate a healthy diet. Had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 55 and everything changed in an extreme way. Am working with an endocrinologist with diet and to balance my hormones but it’s tough work

  • Slave hours get in the way. Stop making everyone work all day..like truck drivers….disgusting how the public treats them. Anyone that is forced to sit all day at thier job will destroy themselves if we keep working them into a blimp. Exercise is the only way to un F yourself.

  • Listen, genetics, biology, blah, blah, blah. Let’s look at the culture of food and how it is produced. Let’s look at the fact that most junk food is advertised the same way cars, movies and other tantalizing things are advertised to us. Let’s look at the fact that there is more sugar and salt, and other harmful additives in our food than ever before, and that even brands we have been buying for twenty or thirty years or more, are barely recognizable from what we once ate as kids. It is all well and good to shift the focus onto individual genetics to deflect from the causes, but when we were kids, we were far more active, and sugar was not the first or second ingredient in everything from snack foods to salad dressing. If the government wants to do so much good for Canadians, start regulating what is being put into foods, as well as putting legislation on companies who have changed their products to make them sweeter, saltier and less like food than they used to be. Start spending grant money to study that issue instead of focusing on our genetics and how we gain weight. That problem has been researched ad nauseam for twenty or thirty years, but no one is tackling the food producers and pointing a finger in their direction.

  • Just saw the Piers Morgan show and everything Dr.Oz says is so right. I never liked sweets etc….and as a result I love eating but I eat the right things and I never put on weight. My grandmother says “I´m like a herring” cos I eat so much and I´m thin.

  • I love you guys. Just a request: please don’t refer to a woman who works with you as a girl unless she’s under 18. Would you refer to each other as boys? I also have to say you both look great. Good job and thanks for all the great education!

  • Always do organic grains as they are highly sprayed with roundup. Cheerios is the worse. Sprayed oats. Totally agree on lowering the carbs. Buy organic popcorn and cook in coconut or avacado oil and top it with the same or just add salt. Good salt, sea or kosher or hymilian salt. For pasta, there are now low carb pastas on the market and red lentil or rice pastas. Give those a try. Thank you for sharing. Love watching you guys, great sense of humors, which we need more of in this world and your both look terrific! Thank you����������������

  • Doing an elimination diet and reintroducing foods to see how you feel helps. Digestion can really slow you down and make you not feel like doing anything and when your overweight it’s hell.

  • as a nurse I have two thoughts, yes to looking at the person as a whole, not just weight, look at the mental health issue that has driven these people to overeat. However, obese people are not healthy, they may feel as though they are fine, but it may just not caught up to them, or they don’t recognize the symptoms, this is not a sign of health.

  • Bananas: 27 g carbs / 3 g fiber = 9 (out!) Kale: 7 / 1 = 7 (out!). Grapefruit: 13 / 2 = 6.6 (out!). Garlic: 1 / 0.1 = 10 (out!). Oats: 66 / 10 = 6.6 (out!).

  • I agree except I feel it’s better to say “keto lifestyle” Instead of “keto diet”. Most people look at diets as temporary.
    You have to be able to make the change and stick with it (or gain it all back + more).

  • So too is POVERTY!!!! So too is ultra-processed denuded foods children who grow up in poverty are raised on in food deserts —these “drivers” at the top of the segment are about the individual and takes pressure off government to reign in what can be sold as foods. Sugary Breakfast cereal for example —how are these sold as foods. We allow ingredients like HFCS and others that affect obesity.

  • Switched to Ketogenic lifestyle two years now and never looked back. Tried Vegan before Ketogenic, but the grains were not working for me.

  • have a Carb Coma after doing keto and youll realize why keto is better, carbs are good for the moment cause your brain just wants to store fat for winter, but too many carbs in todays society keep you tired sluggish and its a endless cycle with carbs, the feeling alone is better the bloat is gone when your low carb

  • girl i just went through 6 weeks of 4-5 miles cardio a day plus intense calorie restriction and my bitch ass only lost 4 pounds what the fuck. ima try dis

  • Carbs are not the problem, it is calories in vs calories out. Europeans eat mainly carbs and walk a lot, and they are far slimmer than we are.

  • How do i get rid of acne keloids on the back of my neck? I tried going to the dermatologist but what they give me don’t work. Somebody help me please!!! Dr. Oz?

  • I have a supremely balanced, healthy diet, and I get exercise. My problem is that I’m a bored eater and a bored cook. My solution is to get a job out of the house (I worked from home) where I can’t access food between meals. We’ll see if it works…

  • Extremely useful and interesting although the ridiculous repetitive music behind is absolutely maddening. What is it there for really? It only distracts us from listening to you and that’s a pity because you’re great!

  • Funny how they didn’t mention as one of the causes could be all the crap food they are constantly pushing at people. STOP ADDING SUGAAR TO EVERYTHING.

  • yams are high in carbs 42 grams in 1 cup (lot of sugar make up carbs) The biggest problem humans think “natural fruit” is the way to go to LOOSE weight it is not. Apples have a very high among of sugar (carbs). Do your scientific researchlook up everything stick to the science not the fads and dogma.

  • I imagine it could be possible to generate electricity and health data through cardiovascular exercise to lower cost of living and raise quality of life

  • What’s the fxxxxing rule,?????? Dreadful style, dreadful voices, really boring old gits (but yes, they are good physios). I just want the information advertised in the title not endless waffle….

  • The issue is easy access to anything you want, poor self-esteem/ self-care, bordem and yes trauma is a huge factor (Food is used as a soother or coping mechanism just like drugs and alcohol).

    Obesity is a choice at the end of the day though.

    The key is eat more calories but change the source I eat around 3000 calories a day and lost 60lbs on a Plantbased diet with minimal exercise.

  • I appreciate the knowledge but you don’t have to honestly be so artificial and just pretentious when you’re saying the stuff. You are a human like the rest of us. How’s about trying to sound like the rest of us?!

  • Just checked my numbers on the Rule me calculator. It says my fats should be 128 grams and protein 82 grams. Does that mean that in planning my menu’s, the fats and proteins need to be that high or can they be slightly lower?

  • You need to turn your mic down Bob..you can turn up or amplify it in post production. It would eliminate the distortion of the sound and eliminate the fuzz in the sound.

  • Hint: BigPharma + Media + Politicians + Lobbyists = Root Problem

    Count the number of pharma ads you see on CBC/etc. and how many “stories” are promoting the next miracle drug.

  • It’s no secret that the causes of obesity are complex combinations of genetic, psychiatric, cultural, and socioeconomic causes. The treatments are potentially impossible. How does one alter genetic background? Psychiatric conditions are exceedingly difficult to treat often with partial response and relapse, and how do we change the socioeconomic conditions of millions? And to alter our culture of over eating?
    I applaud their efforts. Unfortunately, it’s only the every first baby step. Obesity will be more difficult and costly to treat than any other conditions. I don’t think the country is ready or has enough resources to make a dent.

  • Prophet Muhammed (sa) did 5:2 fasting 1400 ago…we call it Sunnah fasting…becoz our prophet did it..he used to fast Monday and Thursday..

  • Thank you! I’m too dumb to understand how to calculate it completely by myself. Your calculator was the best one I found
    I’m a beginner and you’re being a great help for me
    Thank you so much! You do a great work ��

  • I went paleo (zero grains, sugar, dairy, alcohol and coffee) for the past 4 months and lost nothing! I am 230lbs so it’s not like I have a little to lose! Anyway all I eat are meats and veg and some fruit and am still fat. Men lose weight so easily. I have to go get my hormones checked.

  • Food addiction is often the root cause, and the addiction is to refined food products containing sugar, flour and processed oils. Abstinence from SUGAR is absolutely crucially to addressing food addiction.

  • Fasting is yet another diet “cult fad”. Fasting stresses the metobolic system and can cause subtle organ damage which can become chronic and gradudually accellerate. A suuggestion I make to you is “partial” fasting. Just skip a few meals but eat “something” during your “fast” day. I have studied dieting and metabolism for 50 years. I personally have been “partial fasting” for decades and that has kept me what I like to call “trimmed”. For your fast day, eat some fruit or an undressed 3 ounce mini salad. Drink plenty of water. “Undressed” means just some raw leafy greens, cucumber, onion, carrot WITHOUT junk like cheese or egg, etc. Btw, Stop being fooled, cheese is quite unhealthy and should rarely be eaten. If your poop is really smelly, or your pee is strong smelling, you are eating wrong. Your “output” should only smell up close, not stink up the whole bathroom. The stink is caused by too fatty a diet.
