    Dr Berg introduced me to keto. 4 years later I am now 400 lbs, down from 620 lbs. Now I'm KetoVore. Dr Bergs videos were lifechanging.

      keto and fasting is for health benefits not for weight loss specifically, you CAN use it as a TOOL for weight loss i.e you still need to eat at a caloric deficit, a calorie surplus is still a surplus even if it was healthy foods, also for 4yrs? i'm sure your body will adapter sooner or later

      @Arianne Alsaker Our bodies only needs a very small amount of carbohydrates and we can get these by consuming vegetables in our ketogenic meals. Also, Dr Berg only suggests berries as fruits to eat.

    My wife and I started Keto last September. We said we would do it a month. It is now July and we don't regret it at all. I no longer on insulin going from 10.2 A1C to 5.4 A1C. I've lost 70 lbs 243 to 173. Blood pressure from 160s to 110. My wife gone from 160 to 119 lbs. I really feel healthy for the first time in 15 years.

    His story about eating 45 eggs a day was really 4 to 5 reminded me of a time when I got back from deployment and walked into the house and wondered what the burning smell was. It was my wife cooking her grandmothers recipe for spaghetti sauce. She cooked it for 68 hours. Was supposed to be 6 to 8 hours.

    I weighed 415 and stopped weighing myself. I am sure I weighed more than that. I was unable to walk. I had tried all sorts of pills and diets. I turned to keto because my mom started it and lost a few pounds. I weigh 217 now. I've stopped drinking soda and all the ingredients for hidden sugar. I love how I feel now. And I am still going. I still have health problems. I can walk now and have gone on all sorts of adventures.

      @David Rock diet only plays a part. People are extremely toxic from meds, poisonous foods, toxins in water etc. The body piles on weight when it's being bombarded by poisons and desperately stores the poison in fat cells. Combine background toxins with a diet full of carbs, fast food, soda, etc along with overeating and toxic meds, the body cannot cope. I have lost about 25 lbs now in 6-8 weeks on keto. A lot more to go but the biggest difference I am far less inflamed since going keto and I had been on what could be considered a healthy diet--gluten free, no processed foods etc for the past 8 yrs. Not a junk food eater, not a soda drinker...but I still got over 250 lb due to years on toxic meds. It takes time for the poison (and fat that is trying to save you from it!) To leave the body. Many many women also have endocrine disorders that make losing weight extremely difficult in the presence of sugars/carbs.

      @John Wick John, I also need to gain weight but more importantly protect my brain. I went on keto for 4 months and I lost about 3 lbs in the beginning but stayed steady after that. I was eating A LOT, 2-3 meals and snacking, (like taking spoonful's of olive oil or coconut oil and eating a lot of fat bombs and butter on dark chocolate!). But, I have had 3 abdominal surgeries and definitely have difficulties absorbing my nutrients, thus I need to gain weight. The fact that my weight was steady was very impressive to me. My boyfriend went on it also and he lost over 30 lbs., although he needed to lose weight. I started to bloat a lot so I went off of it. I am going back on because I had wonderful mental clarity. Good news is that I kept a record of what I ate in MyFitnessPal and I will tweak my diet to try to understand what made me bloat at the end.

      Yes Holly! I went on the diet for 4 months and noticed that I was remembering numbers better. I recently went off temporarily and WOW! what a difference! My concentration is awful as well as my memory. I never realized it was so bad. Will be going back on it ASAP!

      @Eric Carr My cholesterol went into the normal range doing keto and my A1C went down as well. I wouldn't eat 4-5 eggs in a day. Who'd want to do that? I ate 1-2 eggs in the morning and protein but little too no carbsnfor the other meals.

    My daughter has epilepsy and read about Keto Nat, she has started and her jerks have gotten a lot better, her brain is calmer and she is able to sleep at night now. It has made a huge change to her quality of life. It was never about losing weight but that would also be nice. Her health is so much better. She isn’t able to buy it as it is costly but you can’t put a price on health. I will be helping her.

    • Matthew Montgomery
      Matthew Montgomery Month ago +2

      @M K it's certainly cheaper if you are also doing a lot of fasting. I think the expenses come with a lack of a meal plan though. Some people don't want to plan to strictly and this buy a ton of food to hedge their bets, plus a lot of the commercial keto foods. I'm just getting started trying to add keto to IF and it's honestly daunting creating a meal plan for myself so I do get it.

      @Danny Rw @ROGER D83 @myboy051 and how does that have any bearing on his medical knowledge? His family issues are personal. If his son has an issue he should take it to the police, not air their dirt laundry in public. Professionally, Dr.Berg knows his stuff and he's sharing his knowledge and expertise for free. There are probably a lot of people that we interact with and trust at a professional level, and we have no idea what shit is going on in the background. How does that impinge on their ability as a medical.professional? Not my circus, not my monkeys. Eventually it's upto us to do our own research and do what's best for us. Blindly trusting what ANYBODY says is our fault, not the other person's.

      @Randall We did not evolve eating plants like cows. We evolved eating fatty meats and organ meats. You can run on low fat plant based diet but it working does not mean it is the best. Healthy Keto diets can reverse heart disease and reverse type 2 diabetes. There are peer reviewed studies on it so I do not know where you take this knowledge from. Idk where you took information from that keto eliminated vegetables. Healthy keto makes you eat more vegetables than before! There is no bloating/dysbiosis on keto and dysbiosis since you eat more fermented foods and other gut bacteria supporting foods than on standard diet. You are so narrow minded because you pull out some arguments out of nowhere. Be careful about using word debunked since quite opposite healthy Low carb high fat diets with each year are proven even more to be healthier / disease treating and disease preventing.

      @Anna B Doctors aren't nutritionists anyway, they're just trained to prescribe you medication without getting to the underlying cause.

      @Anna B... but he knows his stuff... hey? Doctors and nutritionists are the most useless professional people to advise on nutrition and losing weight. Doctors have little to no training in the area and nutritionists are taught about the "balanced diet" and pyramid of foods... all old hat. Neither of them understand fasting or intermittent fasting. Nor do they understand keto and constantly repeat "you can't live without carbs".

    Dr. Berg, My husband and I started keto on July 3, 2021. I am doing the fasting with it. We are both seeing results like less swelling, getting full fast, ( lol my cooking is also better because I now use fats and salt to make it taste good). From all the videos you and Dr. Berry have, I am learning a lot about other things it will help.....by the way, my blood sugar has already gone from between over 10 to 17 down to lower 7s. I also stopped statins and feel better for it. The doctors have been wanting me to take all sorts of medicines for diabetes 2 but I am reluctant. What I want to ask is, will keto help with simple hyperplasia and a small brain aneurysm? Please let me know. I know lots of people have questions for you and I truly hope they get answered, and I understand if you don`t get to me. Thank you so much for your videos. I love you straightforward and simple teaching. And thanks for your time.

    A few MD’s and others have expressed contempt for Dr. Berg because he is a chiropractor and not a MD, but I listen to him for information on nutrition and metabolic health. He views are aligned with respected health professionals like Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Ken Berry and Dr. Eric Westman. Dr. Berg is also easy to watch and listen to. Those who trash him are prejudiced and/or jealous of his success.

      @Adam 1984 fruits are good for you, but a lot of them are high in sugar so the fruits you can eat on a keto diet are berries because they're high in fibre and low in sugar

      Medical Doctors know very little on this subject. Dr Berg will have more knowledge as he has actually studied it and is more than qualified to give advice. Doctors in general are experts in their own field of medicine but not experts on ALL aspects of health.

    I was just diagnosed Type II three days ago *shocked* The reason I went to the E.R. is I had lost 16 lbs. in less than a month which was concerning because I was not dieting. I was also exhausted, sleepy, and very weak. I was 5'9" 170 lbs before the weight loss and have been an athlete my entire life (58 yrs old). My risk factor - both parents were type II diabetic. I was scared to death when I started reading the complications from diabetes but watching this doc's video has given me hope that I can reverse this through diet, exercise, and sleep. I'm on the Keto diet now and hoping to get my energy and strength back soon. Thank you for giving me direction !

      Good for you...fasting is great! I fast from food two days per week ( for religious reasons). Other days I just skip breakfast. Since starting this almost two years ago, I have not been sick. I didn't wear a mask or take any precautions at all while caring for parents who had covid or with my husband, brothers, sister or anybody with covid. I haven't gotten sick at all. The only thing I do differently is the fasting...oh, I'm also a vegetarian.

      @Becky M couldn't agree with you more. Average doctor's education on nutrition during med school would be less than 10 hours. So not great.
      Any well educated person can learn about nutrition. It's about joining the dots of all the plethora of information out there.

      Doctors are great at adding medical context, that a non med person wouldn't be aware of...

      Exactly. Dr's here don't look to solve the problem. They just put a band aid over it when they feed you with a bunch of pills n shots. It's a deal they have going on with Big Pharma. The big pharmacitical companies that make all these medicines. They dont want the dr's to cure our illnesses. Otherwise they would go out of business, if they had NO one to sell their medicines to. Then dr's get their kickbacks (money) from Big Pharma. As in "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours". Smh. If we got cured of our illnesses then their money would stop coming in.

The next day my Neurosurgeon came in and told me that my bloodwork was almost totally depleted of potassium which was a complete surprise to me since I thought I ate a well balanced diet.

    Thanks Doc! As a 58 year old when I started into Keto(and as a reference I look 10 years younger than my age)
    When I started out at 255 lbs(5'11"), I started to ease into it with Dirty Keto,(friends who started with Hard Keto quit in the first weeks or month)
    I still managed to lose 25lbs over that year, but then I seemingly hit a wall were I was stuck as 220 lbs for months. So thats when I switched to Hard Keto!
    I lost the the next 20 lbs over the next 6 months. It requires patients and stubbornness that can over-ride you're cravings at night. My secret weapon was one piece of 72% Dark Chocolate(1 piece!!).

    I'm now starting to add Low Glycemic carbs back into my diet once or twice a week while maintaining Keto's 5hr eating window.
    So Now I'm hovering between 210-217, and plan to slowly drop those last10-20 lbs so that I can put on about 10 or more lbs in muscle.(Aiming at 210lbs with the added muscle)
    That hardest part about the keto process is the criticism from folks who don't get it and believe its starvation. Even though they see my transformation and that I'm not suffering from doing Keto.
    I think that 90% of that external noise is based on the fact that most of those naysayers are overweight and resigned to the notion that there was nothing they could do about it.
    I don't proscribe to such defeatist notions.

    I just watched your seminar and I find it very interesting and informative! I have done IF in the past but not healthy per say but did drop 50 lbs in less than a year but still I want to be healthier for all these wonderful health benefits you teach about!

    Also, I was starting to learn about keto but I figured it wpuld just be too diffuclt to do both since keto is so limited.to what foods you can eat and would most likely be very difficult for me since I don't really like many veggies raw and will tend to not even eat any healthy things because I'm so addicted to junk amd feel like my kids need it more than me!

    Anyways thank you so very much for the beneficial health information as I am about to try to jump back on this IF train but try to be healthier... I am curious how you would get 3500 up to almost 5000 in potassium without all the extra calories? I am very interested in getting healthy! Thanks in advance!

    I have dropped from 240 to 201. More importantly I have kept most of the weight off for 4+ years Keto works but you have to be persistant and not give up.

    I am in UK and most people here are not even aware of keto or insulin resistance. I discovered it 10 months ago and lost 44 kilos. It works!

      @G. Leonard actually, it’s the consumption of carbs - especially simple carbs that get turned straight to glucose - that causes the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. The high cholesterol but low triglycerides and insulin on a keto diet actually help protect from the formation of plaques. If you’re going to cite “studies”, say which ones. If they’re working on the assumption that cholesterol = bad, they’re not worth listening to. We need cholesterol to form healthy cells, particularly nerve and brain cells, and especially as we get older. Research is showing that a keto diet can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and heart disease, not increase it. My father ate a keto type diet without realising it for most of his life. He lived to 91 and kept a healthy brain and body right to the end.

      Cheap cuts of meat in slow cooked casseroles. Like scrag end of neck, oxtail, shin of beef. Cheap slow roasts like brisket, hand of pork.
      Pork belly. Sausage meat without rusk. Bone broth (lots of butchers will give you bones for free or nearly free).
      Put onions, carrots, celery etc etc in soups and casseroles even if you don’t actually eat the starchy ones.
      Greens, cabbages, broccoli. You can sauté these if you like. Butter and garlic!!
      Boiled eggs and salad leaves is cheap and easy to carry around. Home made mayonnaise (without seed oils) too. Use olive oil. There are recipes to make it with avocado too.
      You will find once you are fat adapted you eat a lot less and don’t crave sugary starchy foods. This means you can go all day on just bullet proof coffee and the odd sausage.
      Don’t do things like compare the price of a pat of butter and a tub of margarine. Butter is a very nutritious food. Margarine is a toxic, industrial waste product, processed to imitate butter. Of course it’s cheaper. Same goes for so called ‘vegetable oils’ which are mostly seed oils. Cheap but not actually food. Invest in olive oil and consider it an important part of your overall diet.
      Cook in lard, dripping and butter or ghee.
      It’s all but impossible to buy healthy keto snacks on the move. Just don’t bother to try. Some supermarkets in the U.K. do snack pots of boiled eggs and spinach leaves. You can get nuts without added sugar. However, once fat adapted you don’t need those constant snacks.
