WEIGHING LOW-CARB AGAINST HIGHER CARB DIETS. New research published in BMJ found overweight and obese participants who followed low-carb diets (less than 20% of calories) consumed fewer calories, lost more weight and maintained their weight loss better than those who followed other, higher carb diets. “Conventional treatment of obesity considers all calories alike. Simple carbs include things like processed foods, and they can raise your blood sugar and lead to weight gain if you have too much of them, Dr.

Newberry explains. Is Cutting Carbs the Key to Losing Weight? We all know moving the number on the scale requires seriously watching our bread, pasta and pastry intake. A diet too high in carbohydrates — even complex carbs like whole-wheat bread, sweet potatoes and beans — could make it harder to lose weight, according to a recent study.

Pros of cutting carbs In the short-term, you probably will lose weight on a low-carb diet — perhaps more than you might on other types of diet. Studies have found that low-carb diets may cause more weight loss than low-fat diets. However, this is mostly a short-term deal. Slightly lowering your carb intake is a viable option for losing weight that won’t ruin your heart.

In fact, it may be helpful. Tying those last two together, the study seems to indicate that directing people to decrease carb intake might indirectly cause them to increase dietary protein intake. Weight loss is often associated with intense diets but cutting out sugar could be the key to a healthy weight loss. The NHS advises that added sugars, such as.

A cutting diet is usually used by bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts to cut body fat while maintaining muscle mass. The key distinctions with other weight loss diets are that a cutting diet is. As Hall now reports in the journal Cell Metabolism, cutting carbs did work. “We cut the carbohydrates, insulin went down, and fat burning went up, exactly the.

Low carbohydrate diets can be very effective for weight loss, according to research. Reducing carbs tends to reduce your appetite and cause automatic weight loss, or. Simply cutting calories is NOT the key to losing weight, according to a new clinical trial.

The secret to shedding pounds is eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, researchers found. Among 164 adults in a weight-loss study, those placed on a low-carb, high-fat diet burned more daily calories, versus those given high-carb meals.

  • As expert, I do think Custokebon Secrets is good way to lost crazy amounts of weight. Why don’t you give it a shot? maybe it will work for you too.

  • I’m going to try this. I have about 30 pounds to lose and I’m tired of dieting. I started this morning I normally force myself to eat breakfast but I’m not even hungry.
    How long does it take to lose weight?

  • false! Weight loss depends on your hormones, insulin etc…
    People with insulin resistance eat too many carbs and if they want to lose weight, the best way would be a lower carb diet!
    Insulin resistance is a natural respond from the body, that your food contains too many carbs!

  • I’ve been eating a pretty balanced carnivore diet for the last year and a half. I lost 100 punds and stabilized in the 150’s. I was pretty darn happy with that. But bathing suit season is coming and I’m looking forward to getting some sun, so I’ve been trying to lose another 10-15 pounds over the next couple of months. Just cutting back on fat some. Considering If.

    I don’t know what happened, but suddenly I was craving whipped cream. I suffered and ignored it for about a week, then I snapped. I whipped up two pints and ate nothing but that for two days.

    I dreaded getting on the scale. I didn’t think I’d gained, but for sure I didn’t lose, right?

    I dumped six pounds.

    I don’t lose weight easily. Cheese is certain to cause a stall. I’ve never eating nothing but fat for a whole day in my life.

    Losing six pounds on the whipped cream diet is probably the most insane thing I’ve ever heard of in my life.

    I ate normally today, but I think I’m going to do a little experiment tomorrow. Whip up two more pints and see what happens. (shrug) If it works, I’m going to be blown away.

  • I had heard in what way carbohydrates were attached to gaining of weight and so for the most part to steer clear from carbohydrate, but had in no way thought about utilizing them to lose excess fat. The key thought behind the 4 stage fat loss treatment is used to teach your whole body to melt fat for energy instead of just carbohydrate.

  • Nearly every study that mainstream nutrition research uses to assess the efficacy of low carb vs. low fat diets uses a version of “low carb” that very few practitioners of low carb diets would ever consider to be low carb. In other words, the research community is either truly ignorant of what low carb diets are, or they willfully ignore what low carb diets are, so as to skew the results. It is a testament to the efficacy of simply lowering carbs, that even a diet that is not low enough in carbs to meet the typical definition of low carb, still performs better than low fat diets when it comes to the speed and extent that it improves metabolic markers.

  • Thank you for this video. I did a vegan diet then raw vegan for a year. Next I went to a low carb diet then keto for 2 years. I lost almost 80 pounds. Then I started binging on keto treats. Next I tried the carnivore diet for 5 months in Hope’s it would stop the binging. It did seem to work at first.Then I started binging and purging again. I havent done that cycle for 9 years. I gained 20 pounds back. I originally thought keto stopped the binging but it did not and the carnivore diet just put the stress response over the edge. I even on the carnivore diet developed perioral dermatitis. My health was trashed after keto and carnivore. Now I just eat whole fresh foods intuitively and feel the best I ever have. No more binging and purging. Weightloss is slow but sustainable.

  • Low carb, high healthy fat + IF(intermittent fasting) = healthy, slim long life
    Lost 110 lbs in one year. (About 2 lbs each week) along with a 30+ years of type 2 diabets (disapared in the first 30 days) which alll my doctors said was a life long issue.
    Started with 20: 6 intervall fasting, but the last 8 months went OMAD (1 meal a day). That did the ”trick”

  • Yay. Shrink those sneaky lurking fat cells.�� Thank you muchly for sharing this important information with us all. & Take care of yourself to. ❤����

  • Bro, the information that Mario is sharing here is so true. In the past I tried to cut out carbs following the advice of “fat loss experts”. It really afected my performance in the gym and my mood. Once I understanded that it simply was calories in vs. calories out, I greatly reduced my body fat. Don’t complicate yourself, it all comes down to patience and constancy. Now I just follow the advice of a few fitness youtubers like Mario that give evidence based approach to fat loss and fitness.

  • Vegan person here…Whole foods work best, imo, no matter which way you eat them. Eating foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, seems to be the answer. I believe this was also backed up by a recent study. Love your videos!

  • Simple calories in and calories out.
    If you expand more calories than you consume you lose weight and if your goal is to lose weight then use what ever one works best.
    For me low fat did work but low carb has been much better in the long run and easier to follow.

  • I did keto for nearly 3 years because I was pre-diabetic. I can remember one time getting stressed in a restaurant over crouton dust on my salad (crazy I know). I recently had to stop keto because my cholesterol levels were dangerously high. The cardiologist told me it was among the highest he’s ever seen. This was so distressing to me. It felt like I had to choose between having a heart attack & stroke or diabetes.

    I hated that so much of my time and energy was about food/food choices.

    Finding these videos has been such an encouragement and relief to me. They make perfect sense. Thank you!

  • if you eat more protein than your body needs it goes to fat, and that’s why you can’t lose bf while adding mass… isn’t it right?

  • So nice to see you guys putting this information out there. Agree 100% abut eliminating carbs, in the forms of grain and dairy. Get rid of the “wheat belly” and food sensitivities to boot. Lifting is key. Much better at revving up the metabolism and changing the shape of muscles than cardio ever could. Just don’t bring treats into the house!!! Terrific advice, and common sense. And love Brad’s comment that going out to eat is an expensive way to get fat! Truer words never spoken!!!

  • Being tired on low carb is on first phase, once the body adapts, it starts using body fat for energy and energy gets good and constant through the day.

  • What are some ways to lost a ton of fat? I read loads of good reviews on the net about how Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost tons of weight. Has anyone tried using this popular weight loss method?

  • What are some ways to lost lots of weight? I read loads of good reviews on the net about how Custokebon Secrets will help you lost a ton of fat. Has anyone tried this popular fat burn method?

  • I have very bad experience with low carbhigh fat diet. I tried it for about 5 months, I lost like 3-4kg in a first week, but it stopped instantly, I guess most of it was water. Then I couldn’t lose anything, I was eating mostly fats with not too many proteins (around 100g), had no forces to do my workouts, lost some muscle mass and it all end up with situation when my weight didn’t move on scale no matter what I did. I was really depressed, I put so much effort on it, it destroyed my social life and I didn’t get my results. I struggle with my weight to this day, but I find your videos really helpful, there are many videos about losing weight and bodybuilding but after all my struggles I get to similar conclusions to what you say on your videos. Greetings

  • Vince Gironda believed in mirrors, not scales. He said, “Who cares how much you weigh? It’s how you look”. Many people get discouraged when they take up lifting and don’t see the scale budge. You’re putting up muscle while burning fat. Forget the scale.

  • great video…makes sooooo much sense.
    for the flippin last year I was going low carbs n high protein. just the last 3 weeks went high carb n moderate protein and it’s working better. getting my long term energy back…all round it makes logical sense…can’t believe I brought into this bullshit low carbs.
    great vid��������

  • You are full of shit.
    LCHF/KETO is the most satisfying, nutritious and sustainable way of eating, to lose fat and maintain muscle.
    Low carb hi fat eating regulates hormone production and reduces hunger like no other diet, thereby keeping you satisfied, energetic and mentally sharp.
    If you suffer from insulin resistance, LCHF is sustainable, successful and also calorie regulating, due to the satiety levels from hi fat.

  • The meta-analyses of low carb vs low fat studies have been done, and as long as you remain in a caloric deficit and consume enough protein, it makes ZERO difference, you will lose weight no matter what. The most important thing is that you cut CALORIES and EXERCISE. The amount of “carbophobia” and “fructophobia” we have in our fitness and health industries is genuinely concerning.

  • Be sure to read honest and real reviews of High Carb Fat Loss on my blog before you buy. Go to gohonestreviews. com/high-carb-fat-loss-review/ Thanks, Hartwell.

  • What do you think of lost a lot of weight using Custokebon Secrets? I see lots of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets.

  • The way I see it is this… carbs aren’t essential but they are more efficient (stored directly in the cells) there is a reason why it takes weeks if not months to adapt to a fat heavy diet whilst it takes a few day’s to put carbs back into your diet… unless you have some type of carb allergy etc you usually don’t get a “carb flu”… I think the problem is that people eat waaaay too many carbs which are easier to overeat than day a steak

  • Nice video.I think some people cant understand the message.They have so much things in their head, and anything that contradicts what they believe, they block and and cant understand the message. Calories for gaining or losing fat, point of story.If your not losing wheight cut calories, if not gaining wheight add calories.So simple that they still believe in fairy tails like insulin.More carbs its best for me,point of story.If you are reading this and you prefer low carb and it works for you, good for you, you finded what is working for you.As I dont believe in fairy tails like insulin, a i eat chocolate and mcdonalds when ever i want and if it fit my macros.And can still get leaner when i wake up in rhe next day.Good luck in your life whith chiken and sweet potatos every meal!hahah

  • Much thanks. I was just watching some random video about why sugar is bad and then it escalates to diabetics, and celiac diseases and then it arrive to this no carb thing. It seriously is frustrating once it gets so drown out in so many infos.

  • If you eat what you want, just smaller portions along with exercise you will lose weight. I have done it so I know is it works. If you burn more than you take in it’s impossible not to lose weight.

  • Is there a way to transition from keto to low-carb without excessive weight gain. I’ve lost 50 lbs. so far living a ketogenic lifestyle and have another 50 to go but I feel at some point, not sure if sooner or later, I might want to transition to just low carb. I would like tips on how to do so without gaining too much weight while my body readjusts.

  • People are just lazy to eat clean and work out. They want a quick fix to lose weight and in reality is unhealthy to the body for most people. It’s funny how you explain what my university professors lecture us in depth. They explain the science and importance of the carbohydrate cycles within the body. The negative consequences of depriving your body from carbohydrates can screw you over hard. As you say and then, it’s only for short term never long term. Your PH levels in the body become acidic and will damage internal organs. Ketones are acidic people. You produce them via deprivation of carbohydrates.

  • Honestly, its true. Carbs are the best way to boost performance. I have been on a ketogenic diet for a while. And putting carbs back in to your diet makes a big difference in performance. So dont be scared to eat reasonable amounts of carbohydrates.

  • my first cut was with low carbs i honestly feld like shit couldnt mantain my lifts, and when i finish my diet i fucked up eating too much carbs, for me works more eating high protein, moderate carbs just focussing in the kcals i gotto 8 % b.f. with out cutting my carbs that much.

  • Hey, i have hypothyroidism/hypopituitarisim, and have hit a weightloss wall i cant break through. Following all these things mentioned in your video. Any ideas to get me down that last 10 lbs?

  • I have type2 diabetes my doctor said he will let me lose weight on my own because I am a personal trainer specialist sports nutrition i love toast beans pasta rice too much carbs

  • we have been told in the USA to eat low fat for 40 years…where has it gotten us? obesity and nearly half of us are diabetic or pre diabetic. corn flakes and skim milk and a banana on top with a glass of OJ was sold to us as a very healthy meal when it fact it was a meal with little nutritional benefit and enough carbs to kill a horse. its the carbs thats killing us..not healthy fats.

  • Different strokes for different folks. I eat low carb higher fat content foods and I feel great and I am still able to train hard 4 times a week. I will not go any higher than 50g but sometimes I’ll do less depending on what I eat. I only consume complex carbs and the higher fat foods paired with it keeps me feeling full longer which helps me stick to my calorie deficit.

  • Hey
    I love this Video…it is really motivating thanks. I just got into fat burning and I’m thinking of joining a weight loss program that is easy and healthy.

    My uncle tried a particular program and he saw results quick. Do you think I should follow this method,or burn weight by eating healthy and excercising (do you think it would work)?

    I keep reading good reviews about it but I am unsure if it will still work on me…if I am 35.

    It’s on sale right now at a very low price, so if possible can you leave me feedback on wether I should do it or not. Here is the link to the program

    It would mean a lot coming from an expert in this field. cheers

  • Carbs are good. I have done keto and will do keto again but it not all that. It has its uses. On thing is if carbs are so bad why does the body have a total system of storage and usage for them ie the liver and glycogen process. It’s because they are wanted by your body and are great. The fact you can survive without them is moot. You can survive without lots of things that it would be better with. Why is performance better with them providing more explosive power? Because they are great. Refined ones no. Whole ones like potatoes brown rice and the like yeh. Do you have to be careful with them… yeh you do. Think of them like gun powder. Lots of power but don’t fuck with it or you will end up in trouble. Keto benefits for me were the surpression if appetite and I think it’s good to re tune your insulin sensitivity with it from time to time. It’s also good when you can’t exercise much like me in winter. I would consider keto as in holding the body in ketosis for extended periods extreme though. I’m not sure it’s good to shut down the glycogen system for too long at a time.

  • You don’t need carbs for energy or to perform better. The whole point of low carb is running your body on ketones, not sugar. Carbs are sugar. You’re misleading so many people and a low carb diet if done properly is very sustainable for consistent weight loss, not a calorie restricted diet that starves the body. I’ve been in ketosis for over a year, lost great weight, don’t starve, maintain my weight, and I work out in a fasted state. I only eat twice a day. My first meal is not until at least 1pm. Today I ate my first meal at 3pm and I worked out 5 hours before I ate.

  • If you exercise hard for either endurance or strength, carbohydrates are absolutely essential. Do not demonize them. Instead, eat bread that that is made from “whole grain flour” not bleached or unbleached wheat flour. Oats, rice, beans, and quinoa will not make you fat unless you eat absolute copious amounts of them. Besides, getting to the point of eating too much of these foods is difficult for most people and they would have to force feed themselves fibrous foods, in order to of course get fat from them. Have one alcoholic beverage a week and there is your booze. Break up one brownie across the span of a couple days and not one sitting.

    Lastly, do not be afraid to weight train. More lean body mass is equivalent to a higher resting thermic effect on food since the nutritional requirements of muscles to maintain themselves are great. This ultimately means, build muscle and you will have an easier time burning fat. If you are looking for specifics on dieting to lose weight, see the “experts” on the subject who are known as Dieticians, not Physical Therapists. See a LEGITIMATE Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist for exercise programming, not PTs. If you injure yourself in an exercise program because of poorly performed movements, then see these two PTs because that is what they specialize in. There are too many people out there not staying within their wheel houses and it only construes information and makes the dilemma at hand arguably worse.

  • So its the things that give us energy that we need to limit instead of the foods that contain large amounts of artery clogging fat and cholesterol?? Makes total sense…

  • There should be days when you should have a high amount of carbs and other days where you shouldn’t have as much. It’s the perfect balance for being lean and maintaining performance.

  • I love this video! I got a lecture from a co-worker about the tons of potatoes I eat, claiming that my leanness is due to lucky genetics because it has been scientifically proven that eating potatoes will make you fat.

  • When you’re young and have a high metabolism, plus you’re active, you can eat just about anything. When I was in my 20s I ate two big mac meals for lunch at nearly every lunch while in college, But, I walked to classes, I walked constantly at work, and I trained with heavy weights.

    Try your advice when you’re in your 50s! When you read those studies, look at the demographics. How old are the people?

    You do admit that it depends on exercise volume, but most people are simply not working out and they don’t have the desire to work out. It’s MUCH easier to cut out pasta, bread, rice, and so forth than it is to get into a gym and out train your diet. Again, this is especially true as a person gets older and has other priorities in life.

    So, it is NOT a fad! To call low carb a fad is ridiculous. There are cultures that have always naturally eaten low carbs, such as the Eskimos. Notice, I am not using the words no carbs. Some carbs are necessary no matter what and part of a healthy diet, but to call a low carb diet a fad is a disservice.

    I’m so sick and tired of wet behind the ears, little experience, millennials thinking they know because they supposedly read a study. Notice how he doesn’t provide the names of those studies or summarize the research methods used. What was the Pearson Coefficient? What was the sample size? From what population was the sample drawn? Was the sample random? Nope he just says “studies show”.

    By the way, the only “studies” that matter are blind clinical studies. All other “studies” are merely people expressing an opinion based on lousy methodology.

  • Hey Mario
    Thank you for a great video:-) great location also
    150-400 grams of carbs??? when working out on a daily basis?
    I am on a low carb diet and do 5:2 fasting diet. I do daily HIIT between 20-30 minutes. 6 days a week. I am interested in loosing body fat and getting lean. 2 days I eat about 500 calories during a 36 hour window, and the other days I eat about 1800 calories.
    Not feeling tired or less energetic while working out, but want to know if I’m doing it right?
    I have watched the video about you talking about LEANGAINS…. is that your best advice to people who workout on a daily basis?
    A lot of questions…. but really want to do the best thing for my body, and reaching my goals of course. Hope you will take a few minutes to answer:-)
    Hugs from Denmark

  • I try to avoid all that advice that tells you to avoid this, that, and the other thing. It just doesn’t seem right to me. It’s too controlling and restrictive for me to avoid sugar/flour/carbs/gluten/etc. (I haven’t heard yet what your exact approach is, so I hope the advice isn’t “never again eat _” (this long list of foods).

  • Nonsense at 3:08! I’ve maintained similar range of daily calorie intake and kept off all grains and lost 40 lbs (18 kg) So as Dr Robert Lustig puts it a “calorie is not a calorie”! More importantly it is how the body responds to that type of food! There is no need for carbs in the diet the liver is quite capable of making the body’s glucose needs without it. Basic physics states that exercises will not burn off calories using a simplistic model of an energy balance for the average person.

  • Definitely agree, I have no doubt this diet can work for some but for a lot of people it just doesn’t, it’s too restrictive and impractical.

  • ppl saying to mee all the time i should eat 100 gr carb per day to lose fat BETTER and fast but i cant eat more less 150g carb 80 gr fat and rest of it proteins is best for me should i continue

  • I completely gave up on low carb after I figured out that the really jacked dudes who can run fast and long distance (3 5 miles), who are not on steroids, all eat at least 3 servings of carbs a day. I’m pretty happy with that. The rest I replace with fats and the occasional cheat item, like ice cream. It’s working out pretty nice, and I never run out of steam during a workout.

  • You obviously haven’t done your homework. There are many professional athletes who have been doing keto (or even a NO-carb diet) for years and some of them break records while eating this way. You may want to check out the videos of Dr. Shawn Baker. Eating disorders come from consuming lots of carbs and then trying to lose weight by restricting calories. This is clearly not what you do on a low-carb diet.

  • Tbh I’ve been brainwashed by so many diets. Let’s see, I’ll start from the beginning… hydroxycut was the first until it gave me a severe panic attack. HCG diet 500 calories a day, that was really fun:/ high carb low fat starch solution, never been so bloated in my life! Raw vegan, forever hungry! Mediterranean diet which I loved but I wasn’t losing weight like I wanted:/ so I found keto and lost tons of weight, in fact I lost 65lbs! But now I’ve developed a binge eating disorder and it’s far worse than any diet I’ve been on ugh. I’m do sick of being restricted and so concerned about weight loss. I just want to be happy and love/ live my life! I’m bringing a baby into this world and I never want her to go through what I went through ever! I want to learn to no longer feel guilty for eating. I want a healthy balance. Thank you for this!

  • Just go back to Ancel Keyes WW2 experiments on starvation. You lose weight by reducing calories, but you sure as heck do not have a good time. Its terrible to try and diet that way. On keto you can fill your belly with fatty meat and green veggies till you feel full, and you will automatically lose weight.

  • I lost a lot of weight and lowered by body fat using a traditional diet in moderation. I’m trying something new by doing low carb of 150g of complex carbs a day. I only cut it by 200g a day. I went ahead and I lowered by sugar consumption from 90g to less than 75g a day. I’m still eating the same amount of calories. I also dropped the low fat practice as well.

  • Vegans don’t eat meat, fish or dairy and they do it for life. Sounds like you have a lack of willpower. I am eating a lot of fat and moderate protein. My cholesterol and blood pressure has dropped and I have gained muscle whilst losing body fat.

  • Here are some World class athletes which are in a low carb high fat keto diet. Tim Olsen. Record holder. Low carb diet. 2 years in a row

    32 yr. Mike Morton. 3rd place. Ultra marathon

    Bogie miller. Bronze medal. Sochi Olympics

    Lindsay Vaughn. Downhill skier

  • The ketogenic crazies are getting just as bad as the vegans… I have nothing against either diets, but both of those groups need to acknowledge that their diets aren’t perfect. It’s not the be all, end all of diets!
    I’ll keep my balanced diet, thanks! A nice portion of meat, carbs, and veggies! I’ve lost over 20lbs doing that, lost 3.7lbs last week.

  • Low carbs diet is not completely healthy for long run. People still can gain muscle mass plants based lifestyle. Because it contained numerous nutrients carbs,protein and fat. Animal protein make you sick.

  • Bullshit. Went on low carbs and didnt lose strenght at all… infact i lost weight fast and got a drier look even when eating ABOVE daily calories. As long as you eat HEALTHY fats with FIBERS like almonds to dont get hungry youre good. Just make sure 80% of the carbs you eat are the meal previous to training, and that they are HIGH on FIBER aswell, like oats.

  • no the research clearly isn’t clear beause you’re mentioning calories. if you mention a calorie automatically you are disqualified from talking about diet. you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about if you mention a calories. a calorie is a unit of measure acquired by combustion which has nothing to do with digestion. excess carbs cause a hormonal reaction that leads to additional weight storage. thats why sumos use them to gain weight. they are also the most useless macro nutrient since they serve no other purpose than energy where as the other two can be tranformed back and forth into what is needed. Intermittent fasters have also disproven the caloric deficit garbage by using timing to affect hormones to achieve the desire result without shaving any calories. your body decides how much to burn and how much to keep not your activity. you can fight it if you like, it just makes it that much harder.

  • I see the people behind you look so healthy and slim, here in america obesity is the norm. The by pass surgery is very common and paid by the insurance. we are in crisis, desperate, confused, and misinformed.

  • Neither extreme is healthy. And there is no such thing as safe, permenent weight loss of more than anout 20 pounds. The best way to be a healthy fat person is to be a healthy FAT person.

  • i cut down the processed carbs, bread rice and pasta
    but i take 2 times a day a fruit veggie juice and eat some fruits in between
    this helps me to perform in the (home)gym and do my 5 km a day walking
    this appoach works for me i lost 7 kg in 5 monts
    by the way, one time a WEEK i eat a high carb meal, even cake or pastrie for my Mind
    thanks for your advise and lots of work
    regards Günter

  • A low-fat diet is one that restricts fat and often saturated fat and cholesterol as well. Low-fat diets are intended to reduce

  • Remember that it’s processed carbohydrates that are the problem here, and not Complex Carbohydrates which contain Fibre, vitamins, natural sugar and a little protein. There is no large scale meta analysis study to show a diet of mainly Complex carbohydrates causing adverse health effects in normal healthy individuals long term.

  • He knows nothing about the body regulating total calories via the combination of protein and fat = satiety.

    He has also not read the works of Noakes, Phinney and Volek regarding the keto diet for long term athletic performance.

    He has not seen the movie Cereal Killers in which a husband and wife team rowed from San Francisco to Honolulu on a keto diet.

    He has not seen the likes of LeBron James win an NBA title on a low carb diet, nor has he seen that prior to the high carb-low fat era, that bodybuilders not only developed their strength and bodies on a low carb diet but got into contest shape by following one.

  • Yes true, I got rid of carbs and my performances are really bad, I dont even feel like I want to do one push up because I feel so weak even before I try to do it, I am worried that I would lose all my muscle mass If I keep doing that, I wont keep doing that, I will add boiled potatoes in my diet now

  • I have tried low-carb high-fat diet for 4 days plus I was working out. By the 4th day I was exhausted, couldn’t even finish my normal work out routine. Muscles felt flat, terrible headache, was grumpy as hell and felt like i was seriously ill. Perhaps was a coincidence but on 5th day I’ve got injured in the gym and decided that this diet wasn’t working for me. All in all I felt terrible, work out routines felt terrible, my wife and kids hated me because i was grumpy. Not very good experience at all…

  • I actually heard about this diet from someone. muay thai kickboxers don’t cut any weight before fights cause nearly all of them are in their best shape for long term cause of High Carb low-fat and low-mod protein. While at the other hand Boxers, wrestlers, bodybuilders ect. Do high protein diet. To do high protein diet you need to gain the amount of weight again that you lost to heal your hormones and sometimes even more weight than they started of with. One thing I disagree with this video though is that high protein doesn’t make you feel like shit in performance. You feel good but that lean, athletic body is short term and doesn’t last.

  • The American food supply is contaminated, when I go overseas to Asia I stuff myself silly and still lose weight. Eating huge amounts of carbs in the form of rice and noodles. our food supply is devoid of nutrients making you eat more calories as your body struggles to get what it needs.

  • Hi Mario Tomic!  I always thought that you could consume your whole caloric deficit on carbs alone and you would still loose weight, given that you are in a caloric deficit(you would probably loose muscle too, but that’s a different issue). Do you agree with this or not? Thanks for the video.

  • It’s funny to see keto/low-carb bros to be so butt-hurted about the video. If something worked for you it doesn’t necessarily the only way to achieve the goal. Any caloric deficit will work at the end of the day, but low-carb followers will also suffer more lol

  • What is the best product or brand to lost lots of fat? I read lots of good opinions on the net about how Custokebon Secrets will help you lost a ton of weight. Has any one tried this popular weight loss methods?

  • I’m sorry but if you think that low carb diet is a simple ultimate solution, think again, that shit is hard. Low carb does work but you obviously must know for how long you must do it. Once the glycemic storages are depleted on a low carb diet then your body will begin the fat burning process. This process will take anywhere from 4 to 7 days. I then like to up my carb intake in order to restore my glycemic levels and balance some wacked out hormones.Thanks for the video, very informational.

  • What is your perspective about: complex carb is slow absorption and simple carbs fast absorption: With complex carbs lead to weight loss because eating less?

  • Is Custokebon Secrets helpful to lost crazy amounts of weight? We’ve read a lot of good things about this popular weight loss methods.

  • Listen to him, he’s hoenst. All you idiots disagreeing with this man prove how the bodybuilding marketing agenda has prostituted you.

  • I love the comment from Brad “just forget it “and get back on program the next day for when you fall of the wagon and another “going out to eat is an expensive way to get fat”. Luckily we don’t eat out much & when we do we try to be smart about it. I need to remember these. Thanks a lot guys! Love your videos.

  • You can’t cut out fruits and vegetables, anyone who does that is not going to be healthy, I would never listen to someone who told me to do that.

  • I have know idea how people are still on the keto and Atkins craze. Can you do a segment on keto about the #1 keto expert on YouTube… or would that be too risky? Just don’t know how you can live on high fat, and it’s even more restrictive doing a vegan keto diet having to follow strict rules that makes eating and living totally joyless.

  • First, there is a difference between ‘low’ carb and ‘no’ carb. Second, there is a HUGE difference between types of carbs. Carbs from low glycemic fruits and vegetables are in a different world than processed ‘white’ carbs like pasta, bread, and cereals. We’ve been told to eat a ‘balanced’ diet for 50 years and we’re the fattest nation in the world. Third, most of the so called ‘nutrition’ advice we seem to get is from the bodybuilding and fitness competition world which is an absolutely terrible place to be getting advice from. Have you ever seen a bodybuilder or fitness competitor in the off-season? Most look like crap and their blood work would confirm it. They go through extremes several times during the year depending on when the next competition is scheduled. Terrible on the body and mind!

    Low carb may not be for everybody, but thats simply because the ‘everybody’ that we’re referring to doesn’t really care about mental and physical performance all that much so whatever gets them through the day without feeling like complete crap is ok for them. Those who do care about those two things, however, will do the research into the difference between ‘types’ of carbs, how many your brain and body really need to survive and thrive (you’ll be surprised), the different types of fats the body uses most efficiently, and how much protein is REALLY required to maintain (and gain) lean muscle mass (again, you’ll be surprised, its not what we’ve been told). Of course, everybody is different and you have to find what works best for your body and lifestyle but those knocking nutritional ketosis, or even just low carb diets, if you’re doing it correctly it can be one of the best ways possible to live, eat, and perform at very high levels.

  • Mario, you say it should be sustainable and you should track macros. Honestly the biggest pain for me is tracking. It should be a deficit, but not too high. 250 deficit is not a big room to play with. Plus what if I planed all my meals and yet I do unexpected activity, then have to replan, weigh stuff again and all that. plus whenever not eating stuff at home you can’t really track accurately

  • Great video! Just one thing. Don’t do upright rows. It can destroy your shoulders. Speaking from experience. Keep up the effort though mate. Clearly paying off!!!

  • Just for the heck of it, how would you feel if there was a video bashing intermittent fasting and calling it “the truth”?

    Mario, I find your videos incredibly helpful and I do appreciate your insights. However, you failed big time on this one. You’re terribly misinformed about low-carb diets. Please take a look at these three articles, all backed up by scientific evidence. They disavow a lot of the thing you say.

    I can tell by legitimate personal experience that going low-carb was the missing piece of my jigsaw. I’m getting ripped, maintaining muscle mass, improving my performance at the gym and feeling much more motivated than before.
    If I took your advice, I’d still be running in circles, wondering what I am doing wrong.

    All in all, I’m extremely disappointed. I still think you’re one of the best fitness vloggers, but this video has taught me to take your words with a grain of salt.

  • Visited your YouTube page and looked at your header photo. Kind of did a double take and realized you guys live in the same city I do here in Minnesota! Too funny, I’ve been watching different videos from you both for months now! Small world.

  • I ‘m getting good results with this low fat low carb diet, but I have plans to fall off the wagon safely if I can’t keep it going

    especially when I start exercising more regularly again,

    I’ve been working alot of hours so I have limited time to exercise and I use to sleep too much and couldn’t get anything done in my off hours, but when I cut off my high starch foods that all changed, I got more energy and got control of my hunger for the first time in my life,

    I can actually go for long hours between meals without feeling like my stomach is burning a hole in my body,

    and yes people do sometimes over do the fats and that is incorrect because you still won’t lose the weight if you do that, but so far it’s been a positive experience like when a hamburger commercial comes on on television I don’t start salivating like Pavlov’s dog, I’m totally numb to the mind manipulation.

  • Thank you so much for this. I’ve had a binging eating disorder for so long and my mom told me to lose weight I needed to cut carbs but it made me crave so hard so I would end up restarting every month or six months, then go crazy and binge for a week or month straight. I had body dysmorphia at 15 and was very skinny (5’9 and 125lb) but I truly thought I was fat. Because my mom didn’t encourage me to not diet the binging/dieting went on for 4 years and I have gained 45 pounds. I’ve never been happy with my body since I can remember but I’m just so disappointed in my self for not seeing that I was skinny and hurting myself mentally. I’m almost 20 now and I have started eating healthy carbs instead of trying to restrict them for the past 4 years. I feel amazing, and I can eat healthy without wanting to binge until my stomach hurts. Food will no longer control my life

  • Stop all things you LIKE.. too much.. and you are 100% on this video. A Orthopedic told me how far one would need to walk a day in order to loose enough wt and cannot remember but it was ridiculous and impossible. It tones you up, but losing wt is about “Portion control and getting rid of sweets and carbs and all you have listed above. I have had to work at this myself. Not easy for me, as I love sweets. So that is the one thing I must watch. If I could have one piece maybe it would be fine once in awhile, but then if I cannot do that, I must watch it altogether.

  • It is always better to be in the middle of the two extremes. Balance is key. From experience in the past, whenever I took on a one sided approach to dieting, it was never sustainable and my energy levels fell so low as to totally ruin my workouts at the gym. Not at all worth it. Thanks Mario. Helen P.S. looks like an awesome place!

  • It still surprise me, just how a lot of people are not aware about Custokebon Secrets, even though a lot of people get great results with it. Thanks to my friend who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I have lost a ton of weight with it without starving myself.

  • Basic math. You can eat 2200 kcal a day and you maintain your weight. What happens if you eat 2100? You don’t need any kind of book, especially when someone says you cant eat bread:D:D
    As long as you hit your daily calorie. You will lose weight. As simple as it sounds.

  • Let’s talk about specifics. If you are carb-sensitive (aka ‘endomorph’), and you’re not an active bodybuilder/athlete, here is a simple way.
    6 days a week: 2 meals spaced 6-7 hours apart, consisiting of moderate fat, moderate/high protein, and fibrous veg (e.g lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans). Buy sauces and use the carbs in them strategically to make the above more palatable, but don’t indulge. 2 meals because very often if you have carb issues, and therefore you have fat-gaining tendencies, that comes hand in hand with slow digestion. Hence, allow a longer period between the two meals. Don’t graze, it’ll ony make you fatter and more sluggish. If you wish, you could eat only 1 meal a day, I have documented cases where that also worked well. If you choose to eat 1 meal a day, don’t consume the caloric equivalent of 2 meals.
    7th day: one of the meals as above, then with the second meal have a cup of rice or another reasonable carb, like oats. No binging, no mad ‘free meals’ that’s not something a carb-sensitive person benefits from.
    Exercise: kettlebells, even if it’s just swings, correctly done; 20-30min, at first 2 times a week, then, when you’re within 20-30 pounds of your target weight, 3 times a week.
    Do exactly that for a few months and see for yourself.

  • I love this! I was on Keto for a month. I lost 20lbs but I was on the keto flu and I looked it up and our body is losing electrolytes. To stay on this diet, I have to take pills or a drink or drink bone broth. It doesnt seem natural. Carbs is our bodies preferred energy source for a reason.

  • Hi Mario, the low carb diet worked great for me to loose weight, but certainly I did not have power to lift weights…so weight/fat lost but no muscle building. Love your videos as they are educational. Will start putting more carbs into my daily intake and try to build some muscles.
