    In this video, Dr. Berg explains why you should NOT do the 5:2 intermittent fasting program. 5:2 means for 5 days, you are eating regularly with no restrictions to what you eat, and for 2 days, you lowered your calories by 75%. First of all, the 5:2 diet is not even intermittent fasting because you are just lowering your calories.
    Here are two reasons why this is not recommended:
    1. You are not going to adapt to a full state of ketosis.
    2. No standard of what to eat.
    Recommendation: Do intermittent fasting every single day and do it correctly - start with 16:8 daily, then if you are comfortable with the ratio, start shortening the eating window a little bit to notice better results.

    I'm doing the 5:2 fast, and I mean a two day fast with ONLY water then flipping back to the Keto diet for five days. Surely you cannot be critical of that?

    I’ve heard that it’s not safe because you can get a stroke and die from it. Is this true? I tried it for 1 month and lost 4 kg
    And how much do I need to do&burn fat off completely?
    Thanks
    And do you have video to explain beginners diet

    Hello Dr. Berg. In the intermittent fasting, can you drink coffee or tea in the fasting period?

    • Peter Eichinger
      Peter Eichinger Month ago

      Coffee and tea are fine. However, don't add sugar or milk to the beverages. Some sweeteners (eg erythritol - as long as you don't get bloating) are OK but milk has lactose (ie milk sugar) which may not taste very sweet but it does boost insulin by a huge amount. Some companies add the "permeate" back into milk ((half and half) so they don't have to dispose of the waste, and that is loaded with lactose and lifts milk sugar from about 7-13% up to over 30%.

    I hadn’t heard of this yet, but I do keep seeing on magazines and on IG about “carbing” one day a week so you “don’t slow your metabolism”. Ppl are saying it accelerates keto. Can you address please? It seems to be getting more and more popular but I can’t help but think it’s wrong.

  • NHL Games Comparisons

    Well what if I completely fast? And eat a little over maintenance 5 days a week with high carb? I wouldn’t need to do keto, since I’m forcing ketosis by fasting for 24+ hours, so did I just hack the system? Ahah

    I do 16:8 for 5days and 2 days water fast only- I think that is a perfect mix of two aproches 🙌🏻

    • Carnivore Crusader
      Carnivore Crusader Month ago

      16:8 is truly not enough for todays undisciplined obese society. Low carb omad with only 1 hour eating window and 2 days water fasting will yield the best results. An 8hr eating window is just a ridiculously big window and the majority of people with zero will power will stuff their faces in such a huge eating window.

  • bluize
    bluize Month ago

    I admire your work and even use two of your products. But I'm very disappointed in this video. Disparaging any diet that reverses type Ii diabetes comes off as not only mean spirited but just plain wrong to do.Not everyone has a desire or need to be ketogenic - keto is a lifestyle choice and while I believe it is ancestral - it isn't for everyone. I don't do 5:2 but from what iv read and watched, it is not designed with ketosis as a goal, it uses calorie reduction by drastically varying caloric intake. I don't think our community should be critical of any diet/lifestyle choice that helps people live happier and healthier lives.

    Another utube IF “expert” said lemon water would break the fast. Her reasoning was that lemons were food. How could a small wedge of lemon jiuce or even pulp be enough to break a fast? people say coffee wouldnt break it, so how could lemon jiuce?

    Why does drinking apple juice actually cause chest and shoulder pain for about ten minutes? It is not heartburn acid. It is a heavy ache across the chest, neck and shoulders, that dissipates after a while. I have seen others ask this question on line, with unsatisfying replies. I know you have recommended that we not drink fruit juices, and I don't much anymore, but I am curious about what would cause this bodily response. Thank you.

      Sure. I'd say add that with Apple Cider vinegar. Lemon is mainly there to prevent kidney stones when you eat cruciferous vegetables. ACV + lemon make a good tag team to help clean the liver.

    The one where you eat everything you can all day (and night) long for 8 days a week and use just one day to tell yourself "Does it really matter🤷🏻‍♂️" "but anyways I cant help it, and its just a bad habbit after all" - "and besides I cant find any veggies in the store"
    Do I belive in "diets" vs change of life style - well start grow your own 🥕🥕 👍

    18-6 is easier than 16-8. I eat 2 meals a day, 8 hours apart. Your stomach needs 8 hours to fully digest releatively large foods. So I don't load it when it is still digesting the previous food. I either do 16-8 or 23-1.

    If your body sees the intermittent fasting as stress, then T4 will convert to rT3 and thyroid function will decrease due to a decrease in T3! Like Dr. Berg, I followed this way of eating for at least 2 decades and I even recommended this to thousands of my clients over the last 30 years and come to find out NOT everyone is a good candidate for it. Check your TSH, Free T4, Free T3, and Reverse T3 levels before starting to get a baseline and then after a few weeks check it again just to be safe. I go by my own solid research not only with myself, but with all my clients so proof is in the pudding! Do it wrong and your thyroid will pay the price I PROMISE you that!
    Just remember this, ANY TIME the body is under stress whether it be because you are restricting your calories, starting out too fast on an intermittent fast, over exercise, lack of sleep, emotional stress, illness, etc. your body will convert T4 into rT3. Much more to this and that is why it's SO important to seek help on an individual basis with a competent professional with expertise regarding the human body or you just might regret it long term. Get extensive blood work done to get a baseline and NEVER assume it will be fine, ESPECIALLY if you are over the age of 40 and/or if you have medical issues!

    Dr. Berg it's off topic from this video but for good some of time I have been doing a diet in which I were eating 650 calorie diet (by eating one meal a day) my balance is 5-10% carbohydrates, protein 45%, fat 45-50%. I have been doing it for a 40 day period now, went from 205lb to 179lb. In case I screwed my thyroid (slow metabolism) activity, how do I fix it? I am going to fallow my weight lose progress and determine my position throughout this upcoming month

      The thing is I am really energetic so I wasn't thinking about slowing my metabolism
