There are so many different mindful eating approaches to maintaining a healthy balanced diet. There is intermittent fasting, high protein, carb cycling and everything in between—but the goal of all of these. In the meantime, here are our top 9 tips for eating in moderation: Develop a guiding principle. Decide what moderation looks like to you. To us, it’s eating meat, sweets, and processed foods occasionally.

In practice, this means we generally eat vegetables at home, but when going out to eat or being a guest in someone’s home, all bets are off. There is no widely accepted medical definition of “moderate” drinking, but according to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), “low-risk” alcohol use is defined as up to two drinks daily for healthy adult men and one drink daily for healthy adult women.(One drink equals one 12-ounce bottle of beer, one 5-ounce glass of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled. Allowing yourself indulgences is definitely a great way to practice moderation and stay on track for your goals, and delaying gratification has all sorts of benefits, from saving you money (if you. 7.

  • Aha! So, that’s where the BS about fructose making you eat too much came from. Someone (Tappy) just assumed that because fructose causes weight gain, and “everyone” knows that eating too much causes weight gain, that fructose must make people eat too much. Another mystery solved.

  • Dr. David Unwin eloquently speaks about the importance of black swans, like his first patient who reversed their type-2 after going on a LCHF diet. Hundreds of black swans later and you don’t need a statistically significant double-blind study. That is the safe harbor of arrogant fools. Doctors are too busy coding for additional $$ to recognize the black swans staring them every day in the face. Yes, keep giving that overweight type-2 diabetic drugs to increase their insulin sensitivity, or even insulin itself, to treat a condition caused by too much insulin, while watching them get progressively sicker. The solution is as close as your iPad. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. Mat 11:15

  • 23:00 so what you are saying is, food corporations tailoring ads to trick people into ‘buying it now’ are actually criminals. They know their ads target people in a specific way to trick them to buy when they may not even need that product. That is evil. It is criminal. People do not know they are being psychologically targeted to buy a product. If the consumer was informed, then there would be no issue.

  • Taubes’s logic breaks down. The case has been made against sugar. However, just because sugar is bad, does not make a high fat diet good. Whether intentional or unintentional, Taubes is in a perpetual state of conflating the two, as is typical of low carb proponents.

  • One “expert” in this video said nutritional supplements are not regulated by the FDA, suggesting they may be harmful or ineffective. THAT IS VERY MISLEADING.

    1) Makers of nutritional supplements are forbidden by law to claim that their ingredients can cure disease improve health (even if they can).  They can only say “may help” this or that in their advertising.

    2) There are hundreds of supplement makers so COMPETITION is high, which is the NATURAL way to regulate quality and price! There does exist scammers, but people like me who do the RESEARCH come to learn which companies to trust. The final truth is revealed by health gains make via supplements.

    3) There are thousands of deaths each year attributed to prescription drugs taken as prescribed. But there are practically no deaths occurring from health supplements.

    4) There is a company called ConsumerLab.com which tests nutritional supplements regularly by brand. They get their financing from membership fees. You pay a small membership fee for good information.

  • Using low quality Food Grade supplements like Centrum for testing? Heck, no wonder your research doesn’t show positive results. Do you really know what is in Food Grade supplements? How about testing Pharmaceutical Grade GMP’s supplements, rather than your cheap Food Grade Centrum. Please DO NOT rely on drugs or medicines for a healthy lifestyle! Supplementing is the way to go, just make sure you supplement Pharmaceutical Grade GMP’s!

  • That’s crazy and if you see in her older videos she was bigger too on her vegan diet. So am I now. I tried keto once and I obviously wasn’t doing it right. I’m going to try low carb again in the right way.

  • What about these sugar scenarios which trigger estrogen dominance. If you cant explain the obese from the non obese that are eating the same foods. Its estrogen dominance. Triggered by sugar but can reversed easily if caught early.

  • IMHO Excess Fructose=More than YOUR body can handle, which could be very different for each individual, although everyone has an upper limit.

  • Thanks for sharing health info. I created a video about natural remedies to improve human performance. Sharing valuable info below!


  • Thanks Mr. Taubes for maintaining a sustained critique over the years with regards to the oversimplified view that the dietary and medical community holds concerning calories. In no other area, where the topic of energy is discussed, is the type and/or source of energy considered irrelevant. Only in the world of diet do so many so called “experts” look at the energy value of a food and think that is the end all be all of the discussion. Could you imagine a mechanical engineer telling his boss that his machine needs X many units of energy, and then telling him that the fuel source does not matter because energy is energy? If I run a sports car on regular unleaded fuel, verses super unleaded fuel, it will make a difference in the efficiency of the engine, regardless if both types of fuel contain the same amount of energy. If I try to run a car on coal, when it is meant to run on gasoline, the car will not move despite the fact that you can amass enough coal to produce as much energy as gas.

  • Just eat unprocessed natural food, we have been eating this for thousands of years now we have better access to a high variety, you dont need any supplements anymore (we are not living in 18 century London with no light and bad food)
    By the way why do you think that the trails showed that they have no efficacy? Because they are processed food for god sake!!!!!

    The case for cancer in elderly over 50 years, that might be true but only because that elderly do not eat the food they should do, the elderly cancer rate in Italy (Mediterranean diet) is much less that in the US (15,000 men study), if you are deficient than of course you might have health problems

  • Ultimate carbs low fat and protein is better becauseall carbs are sugar because your body break or convert most of them into sugar glucose

  • “People don’t eat many french fries” Last week I was in the buslting downstairs lobby at Wayfare Tavern in SF hallway at the end of the lunch hour; a worker rolled by me with a three tiered cart, each tier piled high with large white frozen bags of something…
    I asked the deliverer, “What is in all those bags? French Fries?” I guessed. 
    “That’s right, Ma’m, he answered, and they will all be consumed at this evenings dinner hour”… 
    Aghast, I remarked, “Really?” 
    Without hesitation, he replied, “Without a doubt, yes.”  
    My my my……

  • what a greatest load of shit, these people are medical doctors, not medical nutritionists, they are basically saying medications work, and vitamins and minerals dont, this pisses me off so much.

  • Good presentation. I read that the keto diet should be 10% energy from carbs, 20% of energy from proteins and 70% from fat. In your lecture you use 30-50 g of carbs. For arguments sake assume 50 g of carbs = 10%, in my case my ideal body wt is 75kg and on the basis of 1.5 g/kg body wt. I get 112 g but for the sake of expediency say it is about 100g protein which represents 20%. Then on the ratio basis of 70% fat that means 350 g of fat. My conundrum is that I will have a problem finding 350 g of fat for my diet. Yes, there is some in my breakfast bacon and some in an avocado at lunch, a little in my beef or chicken and a little in a BP coffee or a whip cream dessert but it seems like a stretch to get the g. of fat up to 350. How do we accomplish this. Perhaps a video to address this conundrum would be helpful. and useful as the fat gram %age is hard to reach.

  • I agree with this talk whole heatedly, however the government is highly responsible for the diabetes epidemic. The government should not be involved in this debate. Whenever government gets involved in science, science ends and politics takes over.

  • Around 38:00 Taubes is saying he doesn’t blame the sugar industry for what they did. I’m not so forgiving. Corporations are always ahead on what the science actually shows. The sugar industry knew the evidence was pointing to them. They put a lot of effort into making sure fat was implicated and remained so.

  • Giving specifics about vitamin amounts that weren’t effective would be helpful. Most trials used very low levels…too low to create an effect. Linus Pauling showed the effective dosages of vitamins are thousands of times higher than were used in these studies.

  • How come the Chinese and Asians have been eating rice for centuries but only tend to develop diabetes when introduced to a Western diet? (which incidentally is a lot higher in fat than their traditional diet)

  • I love your clear and direct presentation for us diabetic patients…I have learned alot and I will continue to keep my carbs low so I wont have future peoblems��GREAT JOB!!!!

  • Thank you for this great video! Follow the money as to why this was not called a pandemic and stopped. Diabetic disease and cancer are money makers.

  • I think your wasting 1 1/2 hours listening to mainstream doctors and mainstream nutritionists give advise on how to eat a healthy diet. Mainstream doctors don’t receive any nutritional advise, so they are clueless. Mainstream nutritionist schools receive their funding from the big food companies. Consequently they are brainwashed into saying things like cereals are a healthy breakfast and cooking for canola oil is a healthy oil. Oh and stay away from coconut oil since it’s pure poison.

  • scuse me.. whether its cos… im half greek (and have millenia of farming in me (God help me)) … pr what..but I crash somewhat even after years of cutting much carbs and having hi protein factors..please can someone eduicate me properly? Gd bless

  • Maybe he could explain why Vegan’s who eat a diet high in carbohydrates have some of the lowest rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

  • Why is it so hard to do what I know is true. Sugar has been so hard on me yet it’s in everything. My daughter has become an insulin dependent t1 diabetic and still drawn to this blasted substance. Oh My Gosh, and we obsess over opioids or vaping when sugar and HFCS has done more damage than any of that. Thank you for keeping up the fight for our health.

  • Frank Tufano is more convincing these days than Gary Taubes. Still interesting to see him try to raise funds for NuSI tho. He’s not giving up, nor changing his mind on any of this.

  • I had Keto fried chicken for the first time!! Woohoo!! Dang, it was good. Get a bag of chicharroness (fried pork rinds). I used plain. You can use spicy, but make sure there are no carbs, because they often add sugars to the spicy kind.
    Crush the pork rinds in your hands down to the consistency of Panko. It crushes easily, takes only a few seconds. Add your spices. Dip the chicken in whipped eggs, then in the crushed pork rind, and fry. The chicken comes out REALLY crispy and delicious. Best fried chicken I’ve ever had, and not a carb to be seen anywhere.

  • Dr. Bowen At Charleston Ketamine Center while treating my bipolar disorder inadvertently broke my sugar addiction. I’ve been sugar free for 3 weeks now!

  • I’m off the hard stuff (sugar), but I had to give up anything with sweetness including sugar, sweeteners, and fruit. It wasn’t easy, and it won’t be easy for you, because sweetness is very addictive. It really took months, with the first thing to do was stop making “keto treats” and sweetened fat bombs. And then I even weaned myself off of 85% chocolate and the handful of berries. It was the only way to stop cravings and to move to a place where I don’t want anything sweet now. And who wants to work that hard and go back? Good luck if you want to do this, as the whole health care, pharmaceutical, advertising, and big food corporations are working against you. But it’s possible.

  • I would love to find the high level evidence that supports the use of magnesium supplementation to support relief of cramps. I know Dr Westman and others, also suggest that magnesium provides relief but ai cannot find anything that supports this. Not criticising, just would like to know. Cramps can be sleep destroying and must lead to big difficulties for weight loss. The only scholarly info I can find says that it is used for certain cardiac conditions and that even that is in question. Cheers. Excellent work. Proud of a fasting insulin of 2 with 4.7 Glucose but don’t like twitchy legs. Max

  • Good video. Actually the isolation of alpha tocopherol was probably the biggest mistake in nutritional history. The following video describes this mistaken detail as well as demonstrates why it fails as an antioxidant. https://youtu.be/V9zHfSIPdSo

  • 50:25 gout is suggested here. I have gout and going keto has solved this problem for me. beef and other meats were red herrings. Mushrooms, asparagus, or any other high purine foods are also minor. Fructose from sugar/hfcs is the culprit and this chart shows a direct correlation. This is on orders hundreds to times higher than red meats and anything else I can eat. I bet there are no studies on this. Lets do a study where everyone has gout eats same amount of meat. one group eats with sugar/HFCS and one group does not. Count results. Then switch control and test group. Count results again. I bet everyone goes Keto once they realize that sugar and HFCS is the problem or at least no sugar/HFCS.

    53:40 zero studies on sugar.

  • It’s the sugar. We aren’t designed to live off carbohydrates, processed sugars, high sugar fruits.
    We need meat, a few berries, few green leafy….
    We are hunter gatherers…
    The reason people don’t want to hear this is that bread and cookies and pies and etc etc etc have to give it up… forever….
    Can’t have a little hear and there because I deserve it.

  • My doc told me to eat sugar and eat loads of carbs as my sis died of a heart attack. There was nearly a riot when I told him to do some research. I’m on keto and he said keto is dangerous and if there’s a family history. One person my sis actually wouldn’t call that family history. I’ll stick to my keto thanks

  • That’s all I ever hear is eat a healthy diet etc.??? what about those who NEVER HAVE & NEVER WILL!?! like me! like probably most people who look towards supplements to maybe help??? Do they help those people who are most likely Deficient???..

  • Unfortunately mr Hyman is lying when he say Sarah’s diet program is the first medically proven diet to reverse diabetes 1.12.Its proven again and again that a plant based diet no oil cures diabetes in a matter of days

  • Canola oil originally comes from the rapeseed plant, in Canada, and was used as an insecticide. Dr. Berry (MD) says any seed oils & canola damages cells on the eye for central vision or persons having macular degeneration. Sunflowerseed, Safflowerseed, Cottonseed (why would textiles be used to make oil?), corn oil, Wesson and even low grade olive oil are broken down with solvents like hexane. There are some other solvents that are used for degradation of the oil’s benefits. A coworker who goes to Greece once a year has an olive farm ( from the Kalamata region) where the process of making oil from the beginning to the end stage, hasn’t heard of solvents added to the oil. I tried some of it and it has a bitter and pungent smooth flavor.

  • Wheat flour is sugar. Potatoes are sugar. Rice is sugar. Bread is sugar. Fruit is sugar.
    Berries are good:) Intermittent Fasting is great.
    Look up intermittent fasting on YouTube.

  • I live in a village below 3rd world, my father suffers multiple myeloma aging 74, I can’t afford Chemotherapy as our govt is corrupt as night mare, food you advise can lead to renal failure so proteins can make creatinine raise, water in body. Please tell what to do

  • I still follow the studies, which shows exactly what LifestyleMedicine doctors are saying.
    The Lancet:
    Both low carbohydrate consumption (<40%) and high carbohydrate consumption (>70%) conferred greater mortality risk than did moderate intake. https://www.thelancet.com/article/S2468-2667(18)30135-X/fulltext
    Risk reduction associated with a range of critical outcomes was greatest when daily intake of dietary fibre was between 25 g and 29 g. Dose-response curves suggested that higher intakes of dietary fibre could confer even greater benefit to protect against cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and colorectal and breast cancer.

  • Looking this in 2020, in video they say saturated fats are bad, but I think now we know they are not, right? Take grass fed butter as an example.

  • I’ve happened to be established in the dieting as well as fitness area of specialization for in excess of a decade and in this period I’ve acquired a exceptional global recognition in which I’m enormously proud of. What I’m wishing to express is this, they devoted the better portion of a year fine-tuning and examining the 3 week diet regime before they at long last made it accessible to the public. in doing this, they made certain that every single thing was covered understanding that nothing was excluded. https://goo.gl/hTwKG2

  • RDA is the minimum, not the optimum most of the talks are traditional and timid, the perfect diet is nutrient dense, low in saturated fat with1gram of protein per kilo of healthy weight

  • Gary, in your reference to the Fitz et alia studybased on the Massuchusetts Hospital, you fail to mention whether Fitz was referring to autoimmune onset (so called Type 1) or to insulin resistance-mediated (so called Type 2) diabetes. As a Type 1 myself, I find this conflation vexing; even if not your intention, it is confusing if not misleading. If I myself have missed something and misunderstood, please accept my apologies. Please clarify this matter in any future talk you present on this history. Thanking you with respect, Len.

  • I met Garry back in 2012 and had a good conversation.. He used to focus on the carbs but a certain moment in time he left it out and joined Robert Lustig…

  • 18:38 lol I am watching this and eating 99% lindt chocholate and did not know this. It is my powertool. Being a sugar addict for life, it most likely saved me. IMO this is the best fatty non selfmade stuff since it has no sweet taste at all. Pure cocoa and no bitterness. I was a TOFI now hopefully TO(ti) Good luck to ya all at your personal fight against sugar addiction and habits promoting it. Lind99% did it for me. Now I am addicted to it! DOUgh! Have to cut down on it and at least start making my own.

  • I recommend learning more on optimal nutrition for longevity from the research of Ornish ( ornish.com), Stephen Simpson and David Le Couteur (protein leveraging, nutritional geometry), T Colin Campbell ( nutritionstudies.org, the china study).  Also watch Forks Over Knives ( forksoverknives.com) and info at nutritionfact.org.

  • First step to clarity: Obesity is a symptom and NOT a disease. If obesity caused Type 2 Diabetes, there wouldn’t be skinny people with Type 2 Diabetes, and there are. Most symptoms have more than one cause. Insulin resistance has weight gain as a symptom, but so does Hypothyroidism, which is notoriously under-diagnosed and poorly treated. Other diseases that cause weight gain: Certain bacterial and viral infections, Cushing’s Syndrome, Lipedema, Praeder-Willi etc etc.

  • Cheers for the Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you considered Franaar Quit Diabetes Formula (do a google search)? It is a smashing one off product for Getting rid of Diabetes without the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • There are FOUR in the cluster… increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.

  • everybody should take supplements, anybody who says otherwise is only making statements to reflect their look or have an agenda…do your homework…all foods are processed…we lose some nutritional value…its an insurance policy…if you workout, you need extra…

  • Tell me charlatan lady: which diet has been shown to reverse our number 1 killer, heart disease? As you are an ignorant or evil devil I will tell you: it’s not a keto diet.

  • When the audience is asking questions without a mic, the presenter (Dr. Hallberg) needs to repeat the question for the video audience.

  • Dietary supplements come in the form of pills, capsulescontain vitamins, minerals, fiber, amino acids, herbs or other plants, or enzymes.


  • Looks like she is wearing a blood glucose monitor on her left arm. She may be diabetic, just guessing. Love her data collection and her enthusiasm.

  • All these ideas, about how u eat n what not, it all depends on how our bodies functions, as (individual’s.) So, it doesn’t matter what we eat n drink, we have to (use) (wisdom,) in (everything) (we) (do.)

  • Thank you for putting this online. I’m definitely insulin resistant and I haven’t been diagnosed for diabetes yet however a lot of people in my family have diabetes so ‘m paying attention as if it’s a big storm coming.

  • Sugar is vastly over used. They sneak it into everything. They know it’s bad or they wouldnt make up random names for it. I wish I knew all this 20 yrs ago. 142 pounds and 99% sugar free!

  • Can someone help please? We know that fat makes it difficult for insulin to transport glucose from our blood into our muscle cells and can therefore cause blood glucose to remain high. So, why is this lady recommending high fat?
