Carbs Will Kill You – Why Flexible Dieting Can Be Deadly To be more specific, processed carbohydrates will kill you. Your body was designed to process carbs and sugars from intact, natural sources like fruits, vegetables, and even grains. Fitness channel led by TigerFitness.com CMO/MTS Nutrition CEO Marc Lobliner covering all topics related to fitness, current events and the best ways to help you reach your goals! Carbs Will Kill. En español | If you feel almost virtuous when you cut carbs to lose weight, know this: A new study shows that unless you replace those carbs with fruits, veggies or legumes, you could be cutting your life span short..

While eating too few carbs, on average, appeared to shorten by four years the life spans of the more than 15,000 middle-aged Americans in the study, those who swapped carbs. Consuming carbohydrates with a high glycemic index increases the risk of coronary heart disease in women, according to a new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine. If you’ve read my book “Living Low Carb: Controlled Carbohydrate Eating for Long-Term Weight Loss” then you probably understand the meaning of glycemic index.

Have you heard that high-carb diets can kill you? Or that low-fat diets are deadly? These are just some of the headlines that have come out. If you cut out carbs completely, your body will eventually go into a state of ketosis where “small fragments of carbon called ketones are released into the blood because the body is burning fat instead of carbohydrates.”.

As the name implies, a high-carb diet incorporates a larger proportion of carbohydrates into your daily diet. This amount can vary substantially but starts at around 64 to 65 percent. High-carb diets can be healthy or unhealthy based on your calorie intake and how your macronutrient consumption is distributed.

Why Some Diets Eliminate Carbs The theory is that eliminating carbohydrates forces you into a state of ketosis, where your body burns stored fat. If you’re a frequent visitor to this website, or listener to the BenGreenfieldFitness podcast, you’ve probably gotten the idea that I’m a pretty big fan of limiting your carbohydrate intake.. And you’d be right. To understand why low carbohydrate eating can bestow some significant health and performance advantages, check out my Perfect Health Diet interview with.

Diarrhea can also be due to a lack of fiber in the keto diet, says Kizer, which can happen when someone cuts way back on carbs (like whole-grain bread and.

The results of this study are in agreement with a number of other studies that have evaluated the metabolic effects of lowcarb, high-fat diets.36-40 The reason why calorie restriction protects against degenerative disease and prolongs life is not due to the reduction in calories, but to the reduction in carbohydrate.

Although not all people have success with these diets and despite arguments that they may not be healthy, low-carb dieting has resulted in a widely held rhetorical vision: that foods high in carbohydrates lead to weight gain, but that low-carb eating can be a healthy way to maintain a person’s ideal body weight.

Atkins also believed that eating too much carbohydrate caused large fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels, which in turn led to cravings for more carbohydrates and hence to overeating.

Because the body has an infinite ability to store fat (compared to the much more limited ability to store carbohydrates and sugars), the keto diet adapts the body to a more sustainable source of energy that will fuel you for the long term rather than causing you to burn out quickly like a sugar high.

  • Completely agree. I like to follow an 80/20 or 90/10 whole foods to junk ratio. I keep my food mostly veggies because I can eat a pound of veggies from broccoli, kale, bell peppers etc and it’ll be about 25 grams of carbs, can’t do that with rice or Pop tarts. And I love eating a lot of food. And I’ll leave the junk for outings with family and friends where I can be more flexible and still hit my macros. Makes life so much easier cause carrying Tupperware with me wherever I went was actually hindering my relationship cause I couldn’t take my wife and family out anywhere without my food and it keeps the majority of my food from healthier options. Thank you Marc for the awesome information.

  • Completely agree with going grass fed meat/butter etc. There is something bad with grains that the cows eat that doesnt go well with their digestion of it. Is there studdies on the differences?

  • Wow.. that was so interesting and illuminating… truly fascinating and well presented. 
    The use of analogies was very helpfu. It’s how I think.
    thank you Dr.

  • Wts whey is addicting! If I run out I can’t wait for next delivery. I think I go through withdraw also especially from red velvet cake and banana.

  • I don’t have a gal bladder. Unfortunately, I didn’t know I could’ve saved it and avoided surgery many years ago. Thanks allopathic medicine and their inefficiency of treating the actual cause of illness and negligence in counseling their patients on all their options. Now I have to take digestive enzymes and oxbile to make sure my body can digest animal fats without taxing my liver and for optimum absorption of minerals and nutrients that are fat solluable. I now do intermittent fasting and eat mostly meat, fats fruits and veggies. I cycle my carbs every few days. We get our meats and some dairy from a local, organic free range farm. Know your farmers like you know your doctors.

  • I’m so grateful for this. My Dr said I was going to die unless I went on statins in 2013. I studied for years and never went on. I hopped off ket, though. I’m eating HFLC after finding Ivor Cummins and Dr Gerber’s book valid.
    Check absolute risk vs relative risk in studies… so true.
    When absolute risk of developing a disease is 4 in 1,000. If a treatment reduces the relative risk by 50%, it means the 4 is reduced by 50%. Therefore, the treatment reduces the absolute risk from 4 in 1,000 to 2 in 1,000.
    Or 1 in 500, the NNT.

  • If you bother to plot the portion of subjects with an event, it becomes obvious that the percentile change corroborates the claim regarding the risk reduction provided by Lipitor, but the speaker has chosen to plot the portion of subjects without an event so as to visually conflate percentage point change with percentile change.

    This claim is not that hard to understand. The guy is basically saying that if you have a control group where the variable is present in 1% of the population, and an experimental group where the variable is present in 0.1% of the population, the variable occurs 0.9% less often, when in reality it is occurring 1000% (ten times) less often. In a population of 1000, this corresponds to ten members of the control group and one member of the experimental group possessing the variable. This is an arrogant abuse of statistical illiteracy. Diamond, stop being a hack. Charts are not data, and your charts are cartoonish anyway.

  • Finally a diet that isn’t keto this and keto that… Yes I can see it works for some but not everything works for everyone.. I believe balance is the key.. like what your talking about.. I use myfitnesspal to help me and it works.. I just starting logging again… This definitely works!! Great video �� �� just subscribed ��

  • Can someone clarify if he’s done the same statistic alchemy at 24:30, re: “44%”? The percentage of onset diabetes went from apx. 6% to 11%, that’s a 5% increase. Isn’t he doing the same thing that the drug companies did with their statin stats?

  • you don’t need to get processed vegan food for protein shake + oatmeal = 50g protein or more, beans/rice = 35, grilled tofu = 35, tempeh = 28, seitan = 28. you didn’t do it long enough. it was honestly a sad attempt.

  • Was great to hear the positive statements re: high LDL and statins right off the bat. Made it very enjoyable to continue watching! Loved the laughs. Thank you!

  • erm but why would you track 3 things then have to calculate them to work out your calories? Why not just track your calories and that’s it?.. he gave no reason or benefit to tracking macronutrients rather than just calories… (apart from I guess you want to keep your protein as high as possible too, in which case just track that as well)…

  • Could have been said in ten minutes. Good conclusions just…too wordy….wonder what is the optimum diet for people not talking too much. One of the monitors of illness of our world….how many thousands of words can we deliver to say something that should be one minute…into 100 minutes.

  • Huh, I notice it appears to be Jarvik, Marilyn Voss Savant’s husband, on that statin ad. I wonder if she has any opinion about the manipulation of data in support of statins? Or the mountains of evidence that atherosclerotic heart disease is largely (almost exclusively) driven by metabolic dysregulation? You’d think she’d have figured out years ago this was all nonsense. But I’m guessing it would be a bit of a revelation for her, and an uncomfortable one at that, considering how much money her husband has made from heart disease interventions.

  • I tried to pull together as much as I could relating to keto and cancer -> justmeat.co/wiki/cancer We also have reddit.com/r/ketoscience and reddit.com/r/Keto4Cancer

  • On min 13 he suggested that you can get out of Ketosis in one 25 grams of carbs. Every person is different and they have different threshold with regards to carbs and Ketosis. So far not fully impressed by it. But I always see it to the end.

  • Aside from the Inuit, there were other populations around the world who lived on diets that were virtually or completely free of plants. These including the plains Indians (called ‘a people “en Dios ‘ by Columbus 250 years before Hindustan was called India), and the Masai. Nomadic herders in Northern Africa, and across the Middle East, reindeer herders, the Mongolian herders these people lived primarily on the meat and milk of their animals. Plants tended to be used as seasoning or medicine.

  • I think this would have been better titled “Statins = more trouble than benefits” or something similar. I heard little in the way of high fat consumption related to cardiovascular disease. Interesting presentation though fun examples, and merely confirms what we’re learning more and more: advertisers can make bad things look fantastic with statistical tweaking.

  • Very well said. I do, however disagree with your take on the Harvard study on coconut oil. The “poison” being referred to only applies to eating the coconut oil, not topical application. This is only because of its saturated fat. The article published was to provide contrast to the popular belief coconut oil is a “superfood” when in reality contains a very high saturated fat content, especially for a plant product. It’s deceptive because of marketers. This article and it’s scientists are using clickbait style titles and trying to destroy the misnomer of healthy coconut oil. In addition, antimicrobial benefits of foods are almost exclusively useful in preventing the spoilage of food. It does not benefit the human body to consume them. If anything they may very slightly affect bacteria in the gastrointestinal system. They are not going to kill any bacteria that would cause infection in the human body simply due to the weak nature of the properties as well as the way it’s metabolized.

  • Where I can find more details about blue zones population commonalities?
    Is it just ‘unprocessed whole foods’ thing?
    How much cooking is still ‘unproceseed’?

  • Hi Robb Wolf, Very interesting talk but disappointed that the references mentioned 16 minutes 15 seconds are not available from your website. Also really surprised that no one else has has assumed these references?

  • so disappointed liars like you can spew this crap! oh you were literally talking about spewing crap..your meat eating lies…BOUGHT AND PAID FOR..THATS YOU!!

  • Is it just me, or does the kind of hysteresis we’re seeing between carb-based metabolism and fat-based metabolism make sense for humans in a hunter-gatherer setting?

    I mean, in this type of setting, being in a state of plenty in a gathering scenario (which is likely to be highly biased toward plant-based, high-carb foods) means the body easily switches over to using carbs for fuel. Additionally, an over-abundance of such foods will go straight to fat for longer-term storage. Conversely, being in a state of plenty in a hunting scenario (which is likely to consist largely of high-protein, high-fat foods) means the body can either use carbs for fuel (assuming a high level of protein intake, which results in sufficient gluconeogenesis to keep the body burning carbs) or in using fat for fuel (assuming a high level of fat intake). Here as well, an over-abundance of such foods will go straight to fat for longer-term storage.

    In situations where both hunting and gathering fail to result in sufficient calories to keep burning carbs, the body switches to ketosis and proceeds to live off its fat stores until either hunting or gathering results in enough calories to return to carb burning (and, with an over-abundance of any kind of food, fat storage). The whole cycle then repeats between periods of feast and famine.

    In such a setting, it makes perfect sense for anything more than a minimal amount of carbs (or a moderate amount of protein) to switch the body into burning carbs, as this protects (and possibly augments) the hard-won fat stores for times in the future when it will be the only game in town, calorie-wise. It also makes sense that getting into ketosis requires fairly serious carb/protein restriction, as being in ketosis puts the body’s fat stores at imminent risk of depletion-a thing that should not happen unless other food sources become scarce.

    So in many respects, the modern diets that put us into ketosis today are in many ways a “hack” of the body’s ancient preference of burning anything other than fat (and storing any over-abundance as fat), as we restrict protein and carbs to force the body into the ketogenic “starvation mode” while at the same time providing sufficient levels of exogenous fat to either entirely forego endogenous fat metabolism (for the skinny folks) or control the rate of endogenous fat metabolism (for folks looking to lose some of their stored fat).

    I’m kind of surprised Robb didn’t speak explicitly to this point…

  • We do not have to go 2 million years ago to settle any debates. We could probably go to remote/deep jungles (“relatively” untouched by the “advanced” humanity) across the globe, and study their (tribal) food habits vs their standard of health. This might give us a clue. Their food probably would consist of what is immediately and easily accessible to them….and effectively cultures are built around food.

    Yeah and a spoiler Alert!: People doing Keto or thinking of doing Keto, you are probably not going to like this video.

    I have been doing Keto + IF for a few weeks now and have seen some extremely good results. BUT, i am really open to all reasonable debates and discussion around nutrition and diets in general. So this video makes it to my list of bookmarked videos (and i swear, i did not thumbs down this video:-).

  • As a member of a company called ASEA, I have learned that low glutathione levels cause a host of problems in the body. ASEA Redox Supplement increases your own levels of glutathione by over 500 percent….. send me a message if you’d to learn more

  • 16:50 Once again, why is Dr Diamond representing the data in this way? In the sample who weren’t given the statin, 3% suffered fatal CHD/non-fatal MI within the studied time span. Whereas in the sample who were given the statin, only 1.9% suffered from these effects within the same time span. In other words: if both samples were the size of the US population, 98,100 people would suffer fatal CHD/non-fatal MI without intervention, whereas only 62,130 would die if you administered the statin to them. (This is a reduction of 36%).

    Yes, the data show that an individual with hypertension is unlikely to suffer fatal CHD/non-fatal MI within the studied time period (3% risk), but the point is you are STATISTICALLY LESS LIKELY to suffer from these if you are on a statin (1.9% risk). Why is Dr Diamond reframing these data in such an oblique way? Why isn’t he presenting the data honestly?

    18:20 This is not ‘statistical hijinx’ nor ‘statistical alchemy’ as Dr Diamond claims. By analogy: imagine the statin cut the risk of death to zero. i.e. X amount of people without the statin died, but nobody in who was given the statin died. It would be fair to say that the statin reduced risk by 100%. Everyone would know what this means. It means your risk of death has fallen from some non-zero amount to zero. The same logic applies in this case.

    20:00 Dr Diamond inadvertently shows he understands how he is being misleading. His slide reads”lipitor reduces risk of heart attack by 1%” (which is not true, it reduces risk by 36%), but he SAYS “lipitor reduces heart attack by 1%” (which is supported by the study).

    I would like to add (for the sake of completeness) that I agree with Dr Diamond’s intimation that the scale of the efficacy of this statin does not justify its $100 billion profit but this is surely an indictment on the failure of pricing mechanisms in the pharma-industrial-healthcare complex than on the efficacy of the drug itself.

  • Thank you Dr. Dawn Lemanne for this engaging lecture on cancer treatment. You really conveyed how complex this disease is. Its unfortunate that religiously inspired ignorance in much of the United States won’t allow many devout people to fully appreciate the depth of this lecture, since it is predicated on evolutionary theory something these people spurn.

  • Is there any evidence that the Inuit can’t enter ketosis other than what he presented? Has anyone actually taken Inuit populations and tried to get them into a ketotic state and failed?

  • This isn’t regarding content of the video but if you’re going to have an intro animation, please don’t let it be absolutely silent. It makes annoying for the viewer to have to either watch through the entire thing first before adjusting their sound levels or (what I had to do) fast forward to a random point, adjust my sound levels, and then rewind to before the start of the content before I could walk away from my computer. I don’t know if it’s just me but I don’t like starting videos feeling like it’s a movie horror scene where something is going pop out with loud noises from the silence.

  • Wow, I’ve listened to Robb on and off for a couple of years but this was his most fascinating talk. Much of this information and thought is new to me and I really appreciate both him and LCDU sharing.

  • Cholesterol is a life saver not a life taker. The damage done by sugar in the vascular system is repaired by cholesterol. If cholesterol wasn’t thete you would internally bleed to death from all the tears caused by sugar molecules.
    The drug companies created a false villain and people fall for it every single day. Stay in will slowly kill you. Don’t fall for the lies!!!!
    LDL measurements are a scam. It’s criminal what some cardiologist tell you.
    If you have a cardiologist tgat put a you on a low fat diet or stations run like hell. He’s a lying deceiving sack of manure.

  • So, what we’ve got here is another true marker for metabolic health. Alongside low triglycerides and higher HDL is sky high LDL. Bingo!

  • So stoked to have found this. Thanks LCDU. Keep your videos coming. Lets change how people eat and age. BTW, a link to the video Rob mentions at 1m in would be appreciated. (Found it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXlVfwJ6RQU )

  • Studies… are you getting empirical data, are you getting bias, are you getting anecdotal information? Is there a linkage? Or causation? Love this. Here’s a recap.

    1. Questionnaires are never reliable.
    2. Omitting any of the data skews the results. Negative data from insulin related diseases should have been included.
    3. Low carb, 39% or lower is too inclusive. It doesn’t reflect a healthy diet, low carb or Ketogenic Diet. Miscategorized
    4. Researcher bias
    5. Harvard has lost credibility… Forbes article
    6. TDEE is still part of the equation, even including hormonal responses.
    7. There needs to be a middle ground, don’t be an extremist

    8. Poor Harvard.

  • How interesting that, since I stopped eating all processed and hyper-palatable ‘foods’ (more than 2 years ago) I no longer overeat or binge or ever have the urge to do so. Nowadays I eat a couple of meals a day that are (a) a good protein: meat/offal, fish, egg, cheese (b) cooked with a good unprocessed fat: lard, butter, cream, avocado/coconut/olive oil with (c) low carb veg on the side. I have NEVER felt better and more stable in weight and mood. The improvement in mood was one side effect I didn’t expect. That food industry admit to searching for and developing hyper-palatable ‘foods’ to sell to unsuspecting population that is detrimental to their health is shocking but not surprising. It is the elephant in the room, or rather, the obese human in the room that is told to “move more and eat less” when in fact all they need to do is to stop eating the processed ‘foods’ and switch to real unprocessed nutrient-dense food.

  • Maybe some discussion what portable snacks for when we are out running around loosing track of time Nuts get boring and don’t cut it a
    lot of the time, Do you have any bars that you would use? I personally don’t do whey or chicory root found in kind bars( known to cause gas look it up) Any suggestion would be great

  • 8:20 “Statistical alchemy” uses the illusion created by relative risk to spin “lead data” into gold. This is literally how statins generate fortunes for their manufacturers without doing anything good for the people who take them. (They do plenty of bad stuff, however-such as helping you die of other diabetic complications before you have a chance to experience a heart attack.)

  • A name on the list, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick who is a British GP has an amazing duo of books that I would highly recommend. ‘The Great Cholesterol Con’ and ‘Doctoring Data’. Truly enlightening books.

  • Bravo! An outstanding presentation. It leaves us with a cliff hanger though with regards to how hypercoagulation is monitored to ameliorate CVD.

  • In order to obtain the metabolic flexibility which I think is optimal, many people who are broken by decades of metabolic gang rape need to use IF and ketosis to push the reset button. I kind of aim to be able to handle all kinds of macros, as long as they come from whole foods (that’s the central point); but first I need to fix a lot of issues.

  • I always wonder who sponsors these kinds of studies! Where do these organizations get their ongoing funding who pays for the Conferences in Hawaii! But I love his comment that he can’t remember what the fuck he ate last week…very funny but it defintely points out one of the flaws in any diet study when it starts with inputs that cannot be validated. If they left out diabetics or insulin resistant people how does that make sense considering the number of people in the world or the US have those issues. You have just excluded a significant segment of the sample and that has to taint the results. Keep being healthy!

  • hahahahahahaha instahoe….. i just love your unfiltered comments. Also great conversation on the study. So many people read a study and bible it. Great video as always

  • Yes yes yes! Thank you! I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Since a went to a nutritionist and started to follow nutritional plan step by step, I’ve been binging a lot more than before and I felt like crap, now, I’m just looking for that balance and I feel way better now. I started to make easy healthy desserts and to not feel bad about something that “wasn’t in my plan”. Greetings from Panama❤️��������

  • great talk. i have also found many similar things in electronics like his comparison. for example, when rechargable batteries lose their performance, it is from high internal resistance. it’s very similar to a diabetic who is resistant to carbs. even the graphs of this look the same

  • and so on….Aspirin

  • Pleiotropic effect. Statins happen to lower inflammation by hammering liver enzymes. That’s the reason there is a tiny benefit to statins with respect to cardiovascular outcomes. There are far safer and more effective ways to lower inflammation. My mother developed the autoimmune disease polymyalgia rheumatica from taking statins. Dementia is another risk as is damage to the heart muscle itself. Absolutely not worth it, imo. Caveat emptor!

  • Great video, bought my food scale. Tacking the calories, but not able to hit protein goals, I am vegetarian at 75 kg (165 lbs). So by the guideline, I should have 130 170 gm of protein. But when I try to do that my calories go up. My current protein intake is 76 gm. It would be helpful if you make a video where on how to hit 130 170 gm of protein by being under 2000 2500 calories.

  • Great lecture!

    This explains why there is a case for high carb low fat, which obviously is used by most vegans and wfpb followers. It’s personal. Some people just do better on 100% plantbased high carb low fat.

    But it’s not many of us. The percentage of wfpb followers and vegans is a single digit. Now it’s clear why… That’s the percentage of people that can do fine without animal products.

    All those discussions about what is the best diet,…. It’s mostly dictated by what your digestive system can handle and what your cells prefer.

    But, no high carber can denie this: when you’re on a health plantbased high carb diet, most carbs get converted into fat and stored. A couple of hours after eating, insulin levels are down again, and access to the bodyfat is also restored so that your cells can use the body fat for energy.

    So you can be on a low fat diet, but your cells aren’t.

  • Jesus. Everything that actually has worked for me is going to kill me then. Bruh… What are people that are insulin resistant supposed to do then????

  • I’m new to counting macros and weighing out food. I understand that my macros I have now may not be the ones I move forward with. Within the next two weeks I’m going to see how my body responds and if I need to move up or down with my numbers. I love this idea of dieting because it’s realistic. I’ve had some success with weight loss. Three years ago I lost 60 pounds and got down to 155. I gained some weight back due to lack of consistency and am back at 185. I guess my question is as I start to see results and lose fat, do I scale carbs down as I start to get more lean or do I leave them as is as long as I’m consistently losing? When if ever do you have to scale certain numbers down? I know this may be different based on the individual.

    Also how important is it to hit your fat macros daily?

  • The information here is good but there is something of a linguistic problem which causes some of the confusion around this issue. There is a linguistic difference between a “percentage” difference and a “percentage point” difference. For example 51% is 1 “percentage point” higher than 50% while at the same time it is 2% higher. When the linguistics are straightened out the logic is more easily followed.

  • Love the video, I have been thinking that I knew stuff but always felt a little confused in a way. You simplified it and made it less intimidating. And explaining the 80-20 rule WOW, another game changer by allowing ourselves this ratio I think i will be more successful in my life long journey. Much love.keep it up!

  • LOVING THIS SERIES!!! Really looking forward to when you get into the nitty-gritty about fiber, good gut health and digestion that’s something I really struggle with personally. Despite taking a 50 billion probiotic and always hitting my fiber every day bloating and other digestion issues continue to come and go! So I’m looking forward to more of your insights!

  • Just came across one of your videos..(about not showing the receipt etc). I have no idea of who you are, but i really like the tought process and effort you put into it. So, i’d like to throw something in for you to “digest” and maybe decide if this could be a video content worth producing. As a former Medical student, i’d like to ask you….The concept of a balanced diet feels totally wrong for me. It’s a lazy “one size fits all” solution. Our body machine it’s not a steady computer. Sometimes you need more carb, sometimes you need more fat, more vitamins, less vitamins and there’s till this day no effective way to get a “perfect” individual ratio, just because our bodies don’t have a display that says: Ok, today you will need to add an extra 5% carb because of that long run you had to do to catch the bus. Or a display saying: Ok, you’ve been overdosing on vitamins and that might lead to a disease. yes, overdosing on vitamins can actually produce disease. So, to wrap up, our bodies necessities are in constant change, depending on how was your day, if you were sick last week or not, what is your health family history and there are many variables that a “balanced diet” concept seems totally wrong. It’s not an easy task. Add to it Big Pharma interests and a growing global population vs real “food” production capacity and off we go to “magical” one size fit’s all attempts. The closest you can get it’s to reach out for medical advice, getting your exams, labs, lifestyle etc. But, beware because there are many doctors sponsored by big pharma…The studies shows that…OMG, i’ve wasted so much time studying medicine and then realized so many rigged “health studies shows that….” it was frustating.

  • Why is it so easy to get out of the ketogenic state. Maybe a million years ago it wasn’t so easy to find chocolate cake.
    Modern human history where we have had access to constant levels of starch/carbs is maybe only 6,000 years? Likewise for meats. Maybe look at the Australian aboriginal diet prior to European arrival. grubs, seeds, low gi native ‘fruits’ very lean meats from kangaroos, mostly raw, some fish. And as mostly nomadic you can bet they lived off ketosis until they could find the next bunch of food.
    Need to look at the humans of 10,000 years ago that’s who we are. Maybe humans spent a great deal of time in ketosis so they maintained muscle mass, and when they got lucky, could get out of ketosis and add fat stores at the same time.
    AND who knows in humanities future we may be scratching around in the dirt for food, glad of ketosis.

  • def the first time going into ketosis was by far the worst for me. Subsequent times were easier and then after switching from low carb to carnivore the last 4 mos the transitions are seamless. I ate mostly SAD over the last 2 weeks for holidays, but I’m winding down day 2 back on carnivore and nothing. Actually I felt amazing today. The human body is amazing!

  • We need Cholesterol-What we do not want is small dense LDL Lipoprotein-I now take K2-7-I had a massive heart attack-I have calcofied aorta-calcified arteries-!!!

  • Are the non-westernized babies born in ketosis like westernized babies? If so, it would seem to be the default setting for all. Medicine says fat is important to babies. Eating fat (cream, Irish butter, Irish cheese I live in the US deep south) but have Irish ancestors Erin go Bragh) and fasting (chicken bone broth) has been slowly reversing my blood sugar numbers (2 years) while I consume MY fat (reduction in weight and body composition). I recently upped my meat consumption resulting in higher blood sugar and for longer than 2 hours. I cannot eat any significant amount of carbs because I need my insulin to process my meat. I will not waste my insulin on carbs. I’m making new dark hairs in my all gray head. Two years ago I felt half dead and seeing new life in my hair is frankly amazing. I’m 60+ and gray for 30 years.

    If I could buy cream from Ireland I would. Better yet I wish I could move there.

  • I love you doctor! Can I use the example of other mammals?: For example lions only eat meat. Why they never suffer from lack of other nutrients and vitamins? Almost all species eat one thing. But humans have to BUY numerous different foods to be healthy, then get sick and pay health and medical industry…

  • something that is missing is this low-car stuff is “food combining” eat protein and it takes 4 hours to digest in the stomach, east starch and it hangs around in the stomach 3 hoursmix them in the same meal and the food hangs round in the stomach for 8 hours plus and rots lot of very good benefits to “Food combining”: eating protein & starches separately and les faddy and so easier to maintain longer term

  • Oddly enough I was a type 2 diabetic a year ago so I went on a calorie strict diet some change was seen but not good enough western diet of course then I went paleo for 3 and 1/2 months more change was seen but still not good enough my response to any extra carbs still drove my blood glucose up to the 180’s for up to 3 hours YIKES! Then I went carnivore Keto it’s been 6 months and a week and I’ve carb loaded 4 times for one day each in the last month just like the other “calorie controlled western diet and paleo” I was formerly on but know my blood glucose will only rise to 122 within 2 hours max and back to normal 95ish within the 3rd hour I so happy my pancreas and liver are doing what their supposed to do I’m assuming my Beta cells are back online fully? FYI my carb loading on all these test consisted of bread, cake, ice cream, candy of some kind and approximately 200 carbs that day of testing and I consumed these carbs all within the hour one side note when I do this now I get one hell of a headache and feel brian fog almost like being hung over most of the next day and ketones are reading lite on the urine stick but by the 2 nd day I’m back in full ketosis it used to take me about 3 to 4 days to get back into ketosis.

  • First, this is awesome, life saving information. Secondly, and slightly less important, if I close my eyes this guy sounds like Norm MacDonald.

  • 6:08 I highly doubt Doritos would have admitted to the fact they use power law to formulate their product.

    Isn’t it a given companies are super secretive when it comes to how they come up with their product?

  • I never did get the keto flu, but, I also have had my blood glucose taken after having a sugary beverage from Starbucks (before I changed up my diet)… and it didn’t seem to really be impacted as significantly as expected by that either. Wonder if there’s a connection?

  • This presentation is astounding. I am amazed how much the arguments and health/nutritional philosophy presented here overlap and are complementary with the ideas that Chris Masterjohn has advanced in his articles, podcasts and videos in recent years. The analysis is so much deeper, more rigorous, and intellectually satisfying than the dogmas propounded by the Procrusteans who endorse the only one true diet allegedly best for everyone. What is common to both Wolf and Masterjohn, it seems to me, is a very solid grounding in physiology and biochemistry conjoined with an integrative (and not merely analytical) approach to health and nutrition.

  • This presentation, by Dr. Diamond, should be required viewing by anyone who is in any field related to healthcare or nutrition. So much of our popular “wisdom” concerning diet and nutrition is based on statistical subterfuge. As Dr. Diamond so expertly demonstrated here, the level of deception that takes place in the realm of nutrition is on par with the duplicity normally reserved for such dishonest professions as used car salesmen, lawyers, and televangelists.

  • So pharma companies want to sell people statins, when 97 out of 100 wont need them, and only 1 of the three that does need them they will actually do anything for? So put another way, scare tactics are forcing 100 people to purchase something, that only 3 of them might actually need it, but two thirds of the time it doesn’t work anyway?

    And this comes at the expense of the patient actually doing something productive about their health, because they thought that they could just take a pill and keep slamming burgers and milkshakes?

    Sounds like economic rent seeking behavior to this layman.

  • The point is, evolution solved the cancer problem over the course of the last 2 billion years, or else we wouldn’t be here. We just need to be smart enough to understand it, harness it and apply it sensibly. Warburg was onto something. Paul Davies basically came to the same conclusion as Warburg when he was asked to look into the cancer problem after the 80 years of oncological investigation provided nothing useful.

    Clearly the large part of it is environmental and particularly inappropriate diet refined carbohydrates and excess empty nutrients that promotes chronic hyperinsulinemia and causes the body to be overwhelmed with glucose.

    Too much anabolism, not enough catabolism = optimal cancer environment.

  • Great talk… really appreciate the comment about antibiotics mucking up our mitochondria… I wouldn’t have thought antibiotics could get at them (don’t antibiotics work on bacteria among our cells, not in them?)… so that’s a whole new area of thought to investigate.

  • This presentation is bullshit. He misrepresents all of the data presented. Why post it on your channel? This will discredit anyone associated with Low Carb Down Under.

  • Stop eating junk food, stop smoking, stop drinking too much alcohol and try to reduce your stress levels with exercise and fasting. Problems solved. But hey, there are far too many human animals on this planet so carry on doing what you are doing.

  • Fantastic. I can see a future where those with the inclination will really be able to dial in there health with genetics, gut biome etc. The 1.5hr version of this presentation would be great to see��

  • 11:30 Dr Diamond’s reporting of the Norway study is extremely (and possibly willfully) misleading. The paper clearly shows that patients with familial hypercholesterolemia are at increased risk of premature death from cardiovascular disease. In this study FH patients were compared to the general Norwegian population. Mean age of death in the sample was 61.1 years with the most common cause of death being CHD (46%). Why is he presenting data about all cause mortality when his argument is about CHD?

    The conclusion of the study (taken directly from the abstract) is as follows: “Despite prescription of lipid‐lowering drugs, familial hypercholesterolemia patients still had significantly increased cardiovascular disease mortality compared with the general Norwegian population.”

    Furthermore, despite his protestations, the study showed that “Compared with the Norwegian population, cardiovascular disease mortality was significantly higher in the UCCG Registry in all age groups younger than 70 years.” (Again, quoted from the abstract)

    Why is Dr Diamond misrepresenting these data?

  • Talk about the real issue, the issue that makes cholesterol look like the bad guy… SUGAR, and INSULIN… The irritation in blood vessels, and the band aid action of cholesterol. It’s like the guy who gets arrested for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, who was doing what he was told to do, and had done nothing wrong!

  • Good pesentation from a different point of view. However, I would like to debate a few topics that Robb made. First is that the fruits & vegetables today are not same as what they were thousands/millions of years ago. Humans have hybrodized and cross-bred them to be bigger, sweeter, less toxic to make them palatable for profit.

    Second, based on Dr Paul Saladino whom I agree with, carbohydrate is not and was not found on every part of the world where humans roam. The macros that were avaiable for consumption in every part of the world is only fat & protein. Therefore, it can be concluded that there is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. The liver can make glucose on demand via gluconeogenesis when it needs to. On the flip side, there are essentials in fats and proteins that humans cannot exist without. Some may argue that there are micronutrients and other nutrients required in plants, but the fact is that everything we need can be found in meats (and in larger quantities). Low carb is an option for those who still prefer to eat plants not a necessity.
    Third, Robb did not mention plant toxins and proteins that cause cognitive, digestive, and metabolic problems for not only humans but for most animals. These are defenses that plants evolved to protect themselves from being eaten and to become extinct.
    Forth point, according to Dr. Cywes whom I also agree with, he stated that any modern diet that requires supplementing is an incomplete diet. Humans should be able to get all nutrients and essentials from food intake. Supplements are produced primarily for profit. Should an apocalypse occur it would be difficult to buy Omega-3 and B-complex supplements.
    And lastly, I had heard from other presenters that the Inuit people, they primarily consumed the animal fat, organs, some meat. The lean meat they would feed that to their dogs. I could be wrong on this last point as this was just I can recall from other lectures that I watched.

  • Other things to look at which does the most damage to the human condition? Cancers thrive on glucose, Alzheimer’s is improved by ketones, constant glucose damages blood vessels, capillaries. I think this may indicate that ketosis is the default position, and glucose metabolism the reaction to times of plenty, maybe for the purpose of building fat stores? The damage that glucose does to the human condition to me indicates this isn’t the default system.

  • Statins lower production of LDL particles in the liver…. But LDL transports triglycerides. With less LDL particles,…. Where does the fat go?

    I’m guessing your metabolism drops because your transportation capacity drops. If you’re on a high carb low fat diet, that won’t be much of an effect. But when you’re at 30% or more fat, then where does the fat go?

    Straight to your fat stores I guess but then you can’t get it out because of a lack of LDL particles? So your metabolism drops?

    If your fat cells are near their capacity limit, and with more fat being forced into them, insulin resistance is the result.

    I’m trying to figure out what the result is of reducing triglyceride transportation capacity.

  • 4:04 re: Inuits, *I was unaware the Inuits were a blue zone group, go to Google it and find out I want aware because they aren’t.

    They have a life expectancy a full 10 years shorter than the average Canadian who eats the standard Western diet.

    Just over 4 minutes in and the speaker is already debunked with a quick Google search.

  • And if your blood type is O, your risk of Thrombophilia is 2 to 4 times lower than other blood types.
    And Aspirin the cheapest reducer of risk for those at risk,

  • I followed the dogma advise of my doctors until I found the truth. I had to experiment on myself until my health return to normal. Like the processed food industry, most medical professionals have no vested interest in getting you healthy or keeping you healthy. Where is the Department of Justice?

  • Doctors aren’t stupidthey know how to interpret studies. They already know everything he said here and yet they prescribe this stuff.

  • CONCLUSIONS:
    Good old aspirin really….which they obviously don’t like.
    “VKA, DOACs and aspirin significantly reduced the risk of recurrent VTE, with DOACs and VKA being more effective than aspirin. The decision regarding life-long anticoagulation following an unprovoked DVT or PE should depend on the patients’ risk for recurrent PE as well as the patients’ values and preferences.”

    “CONCLUSION:
    TNF-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8 levels are risk determinants for venous thrombosis. Individuals with detectable levels of either of these mediators in plasma have an OR of about 2. In line with these findings, the odds for the anti-inflammatory cytokine Il-10 tend to be < 1. These results add further evidence for the contention that there is an inflammatory component to venous thrombotic disease and may explain why anti-inflammatory agents such as aspirin may be effective for prevention."

  • One final comment: I have posted a lot of comments under this video because I think that the way Dr Diamond is representing the data is misleading, selective and in one case: dishonest. HOWEVER, his presentation has significant merit from 23:25 onwards where he admits that 1% is a lot of lives to save. I also agree with him that even admitting the efficacy of statin treatments for at risk groups, we must consider adverse effects that are indicated by the literature.

    Dr Diamond is correct in his assertion that just because statins might be able to return a statistically significant reduction in mortality rates, this does not support any conjecture that: a) they are the optimal treatment for CVD/CHD/stroke, b) the size of the effect on the population as a whole justifies the economic investment in them as a therapy, c) the size of the effect on individual risk justifies the cost of treating the patient, d) the reduction in mortality rates justifies the increase in adverse effects.

  • 22:15 Dr Diamond is surely being willfully obtuse in this section. Yes, the data show that risk of MI, stroke and death from CVD is low in the sample population but the point is IT IS MUCH LOWER in the sample who were administered a statin (44% lower!). That means that NEARLY HALF of the people who you would expect to have these events over the course of the trial didn’t have them.

    At 22:15 we see that although the risk of non-fatal MI/fatal CHD is low (2.8%), it is MUCH LOWER in the sample who were administered rosuvastatin (1.6%). If both samples were the size of the US population you would expect 91,560 people to suffer one of these outcomes, but if you give them statins only 52,320 would suffer one of these outcomes. This is a reduction of 44%.

    For the record, I understand that the samples are not the size of the US population, I use it as a point of comparison to help imagine what these numbers actually mean.

  • The Inuit example doesn’t show ketosis isn’t the best metabolic process… it shows it isn’t the best process for surviving in the cold (perhaps). It’s also a strange claim to say the body “tries to get out of ketosis.” Why not just say the body turns it off when it can in order to prime it for use later? Ketosis optimizes your chance of survival when food is scarce… preserves muscle, aids endurance / persistence hunting, even spares glycogen in muscles for bursts of speed. Eating, any eating, probably turns it off (unless you precisely match starvation macros), because eating isn’t just your chance to get all your nutrients, but it’s your chance to store fat for ketosis again. Evolutionarily, feasting and fasting was the normal diet, and so it makes some sense to say there’s no such thing as an optimal diet for people who eat constantly. I don’t see how it follows from any of that that ketosis isn’t our best metabolic condition. Flexibility has WHAT value in an environment like our modern one?

  • How controlled were these test subjects? I know if I run to the lab before a glucose tolerance test my numbers would be a lot lower.

  • 13:00 The BMJ meta-analysis admits that “it is well known that total cholesterol becomes less of a risk factor or not at all for all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality with increasing age”. However, it is strange to quote its findings without any reference to the plurality of studies into the effects of cholesterol in other age groups, e.g. “Total cholesterol concentration is a strong predictor of mortality from coronary heart disease, cardiovascular diseases.” in a cohort of 49000 individuals aged 30-54 (W M Monique Verschuren, researchera, Daan Kromhout, professor, BMJ 1995;311:779 )

    Dr Diamond asks “why would anybody want to lower their LDL-C if they’re actually living longer than someone with lower LDL?” This association is only true amongst population samples taken from older cohorts. In order to appear in an older cohort, you first have to survive being in all younger cohorts, and those with high LDL-C are less likely to do this (as has been repeatedly shown in multiple studies).

  • Min 22 indirect calorimetry is not a great tool as the CO2 in the lungs may not be the same in the mitochondria. A full carnivore not consuming carbs is not utilizing glucose as their main fuel. Granted that’s there is some gluconeogenesis but is not accounting for the RQ of 1.0.

  • Really good work! It’s crazy how underrated this video is!! Also, your voice is really charming�� I never comment but you deserve it this time

  • 11:00 Oddly, Dr Diamond doesn’t go into much detail about Type IIa hyperlipoproteinemia (Familial) which is not a healthy condition. Multiple studies have shown increased risk of premature atherosclerosis and thrombosis (Colman RW Thrombosis and Haemostasis [01 Apr 1978, 39(2):284-293]) which is commonly attributed to hyperresponsive platelet aggregation (Editor P.M. Mannucci, Thrombosis research June 1, 1988Volume 50, Issue 5, Pages 593–604)

    I have only put two papers on here, but the list is as long as my arm. I am surprised he doesn’t touch on this at all. Is he ignorant of the findings, or deliberately selecting his data to fit his pre-existing paradigm?

    Anyone looking for more in depth info would find a useful starting point in the reference section of the Mannucci paper which has lots of good quality research into the topic from a number of respected institutions using the following link https://www.thrombosisresearch.com/article/0049-3848(88)90318-0/references

  • How is it that blood from transfusions is not screened for travelling/ invading type cancer cells? Surely there is a huge risk with so many people having undiagnosed cancers? I wasn’t diagnosed with cancer until stage 3 and it was already travelling.

  • 13:30 Dr Diamond presents a straw-man argument. He tries to dismiss the proven efficacy of statins at preventing CVD by lumping them together with the disappointing results of CETP and then throwing the whole lot out. HOWEVER, statins have been shown in multiple studies to significantly decrease the risk of death from CVD. E.g. This 20 year study from Imperial College London and The Univerisity of Glasgow led by Professor Ray that showed administering statins (pravastatin) to a cohort with starting LDL>190 reduced CHD death and CVD death by 28% (Circulation vol. 136 no. 20 1878-1891).

    This is the longest ranging study into the efficacy of statins on mortality rates. Why is Dr Diamond failing to present it? Why is he equating the efficacy of statins to the efficacy of CETP when the data show the opposite?

  • I worked for govt in a past life, and yes I found ways to manipulate the data in reports to produce a ‘positive’ result, when in fact it was a nothing result. That was the job.

  • Integrative treatment is the best treatment for cancer. All natural, preferably given by a caring, Christian doctor. There are cures.

  • Nearly everyone forgets that humans most everywhere around the world have access to foods our ancestors did not. Not just highly processed foods… but also the tortillas and the beets and carrots Wolf mentions were available only ‘a wink of an eye’ ago, in evolutionary terms.

    It does not take a genius or an advanced college degree to check out the wild ancestors of domesticated plants now common in our diets. Wild wheat and wild corn, from which the tortilla is made, are excellent examples. Those species, and others like beets and carrots, were smaller and contained a lot less starch (chains of sugar molecules) and sugar than the domesticated cultivars (cultivated varieties) and they had lower yields. Pull up a Queen Anne’s Lace plant and compare that to the carrots from your garden or the supermarket, for instance.

    The changes in fruits larger, sweeter, longer bearing seasons may be even more dramatic.

    AND those foods were not available in either the abundance or as constantly all year long as grains, high-starch vegetables, and sugary fruits are now. Early humans, according to anthropologists, tended to live and migrate along ocean shores and rivers where food was most always abundant, food that was a good source of protein and high in fat. The evidence is clear, as well, that our so-called ‘primitive’ ancestors tended to hunt large mammals to extinction. (This may be due, at least in part, to the practice of driving entire herds over cliffs, as it is difficult to impossible to single out one animal from a herd if one is on foot.) After the depletion of game animals in a region, farming of grains and other starchy foods became common. Note also that traditional hunters, like predators, eat the organs and the fat first, and eat the muscle later… or leave it for scavengers if they can find more prey.

    We tend to forget the once common knowledge that animals were preferentially hunted, and farmed animals later were harvested, when they were fattest.

    It is not disputed that humans have no need for dietary carbohydrates. Or that humans will die without a minimum of certain fats, though the general public seems unaware of these things. Paleoanthropologists can tell almost at a glance whether ancient human remains came from a person who was from a ‘hunter-gatherer’ or farming culture because of the physical development and better teeth. See ‘Nutrition and Physical Degeneration’ by Weston A Price, ‘Paleopathology and the Origins of the Paleo Diet’ by Dr. Michael Eades on YouTube, and ‘The Case for Nutritional Ketosis’ by Dr. Stephen Phinney, PD also on YouTube for more info.

  • This is all hogwash and story telling. No evidence anything goes from single cells to multicell. The one thing she said that was correct was the earth was created and then she rephrased it incorrectly.

  • Awesome job of summarizing this research so that the lay-person can understand….and in 30min. Thank you. I am also so thankful that social media makes it possible for smart people like Dr. Diamond to share the real information to the world.

  • 8:30 I don’t understand. The data clearly shows a 400% increase in mortality. It isn’t a ‘statistical manipulation’. If these data are extrapolated to two populations the size of the US you would expect: 98,000 deaths in the population with sc=150mg/dl and 425,100 deaths in the population with sc>290mg/dl. That is an increase of 400%.

    There is no deception in the way these data have been presented. I do not know why Dr Diamond has chosen to reframe the data in the way he has presumably because either a) he doesn’t understand statistics, or b) these data do not support his paradigm (which would be inconvenient for him).

  • better not to drink baking soda, you’re gonna just changing your stomach pH, and nothing else, opening the door to let bacteria into your gut; not a good idea.

  • STAGGERING, STAGGERING, STAGGERING…..!!!!!
    I’ll ask just 3 of several questions that come to mind……. Do not both the low-to-no-carbs/high-healthy-fat, and Paleo, diets produce an essentially permanent, full-body alkaline situation, that is to say, an internal environment which significantly inhibits malignant tumour growth and metastasis?
    Fasting? Intermittent fasting? Leading to bad/rogue-cell apoptosis &/or autophagy?
    Haven’t we learned that these are not only preventive but also curative able to reverse malignancy (among a VERY great many OTHER suboptimal metabolic conditions)??
    I noticed this wondrous doctor did not address patients’ diets either before or after treatment…..?

  • Keep it up! I feel like this course could really revolutionize my relationship with food. One topic I may suggest is bored eating. My biggest issue is having nothing to do over the weekend and losing sight of my goals. Thank you.

  • @LowCarbDownUnder Your have so many good speakers with so much great stuff to say, it is a pity that you have given a platform to this man and his misinformation and misrepresentation of data.

  • Fascinating changes. And I gather even if it does not attack cancers at an IVC protocol now more widely available will at least ameliorate the side effects of some of these treatments, and improve body energy and feeling of well being. There is also increasing evidence that continuous IVC at different levels can also help keep a lid on cancer growth…to be confirmed, but I know some trials have been done, and now there is another IVC adjunctive treatment therapy trial underway for lung cancer, after they had positive results with doing this with pancreatic cancer. Cant remember the name of the University in the US now though.

  • Dr. Tullio Simoncini has had great success, in curing many Adenocarcinoma cancers with NaHCO3 injections. He injects the Bicarbonate directly into the tumor.
    I believe this treatment works in this manor: Adenocarcinomas burn glucose to become lactic acid. This high concentration of Acid prevents Autonomous Immune Cells from coming anywhere near these highly acidic tumors. They are simply driven away. So by alkalizing these solid tumors, with NaHCO3, macrophage activity will prevail and the immune system can come to the rescue.
