  • Well, I followed the 'links to scientific resources' and it leads to the same list of videos by the channel owner. Tried to look at channel owner's credentials apart from the letters he puts behind his name and found no description of his training, medical specialty or science based training. This would seem like another hach channel pretending to be speaking for science. Touting evidence based philosophy while not providing evidence. The concepts behind this video are completely off base.

  • 5:25 I found this part with a significant higher complexity. Please like if you would like Greger to go deeper into this topic for us 'debaters' to have a better informed stronger arguments.

  • I have always appreciated your videos but it seems clear on this one you may be misleading folks a bit…on your own studies it shows an initial spike in blood sugar and then a massive reduction over time on a keto diet (btw you can also do keto vegan or vegetarian so using 'keto diet' is a bit confusing as well)…I would recommend Dr. Ben Bikman to those confused. Still love what you're doing just consider being a bit more truly objective.

  • You’ve really disappointed me with this one, Dr Gregor. Not necessary to go there. I just don’t plan to ever go back to downing a bunch a carbs. Does it bother anybody that I accept that this is what I need? Kinda like an alcoholic deciding they won’t go back to drinking. Please don’t tell me that injecting insulin is a better option!

  • Story doing the rounds today about South American Indigenous people who are some of the healthiest on Earth who till recently had no Heart disease! Worth a read! & guess what they eat Meat looool you vegans are Lost af 😂👌🏽

  • The latest study on the subject followed 135,335 people age 35 to 70 in 18 countries for more than seven years. Published in 2017, this research found that people who ate the most fat (an average of 35.3 percent of calories) were 23 percent less likely to die than those whose fat intake was lowest (an average of 10.6 percent of total calories). And it didn’t matter whether the fat was saturated, polyunsaturated or monounsaturated. The higher fat diets also were associated with a lower risk of stroke. The same study found that people who ate the most carbohydrates (77 percent of total calories, including carbs from fruits and vegetables) had a higher risk of dying (not necessarily of cardiovascular disease) than those who ate the lowest amount of carbs (46 percent of total calories).

  • Dr. What do you think about iron pan? I don't know if I am Iron deficient but I'mnplanning to buy one. What should I consider? PLEASE answer or make a video on it because I urgently need to buy a pan.

  • Check out the Newcastle researh – unclog your liver and pancreas and reverse type 2 and massively improve type 1.
    No point avoiding "carbs" for life if your liver remains clogged with lard.

  • Having just had a brush with type 2 myself, I now see that the KETO loons are using diabetes as an argument against anyone eating carbs ever.

    Shame on them – well at least the ones with medical credentials – not the meathead gym bros who can't help themselves…
    Keto is for people who have an unhealthy liking for barbecue and are going to die early and painfully anyway.

  • Your presentation is very misleading: I have T2D and following a LCHF diet helped me reduce my HBa1c from 8.2 to 6.2 in 4 months, my TG from 108 mg/dl to 91, my Ch-T from 140 mg/dl to 124, my CH-LDL from 0.74 mg/dl to 0.47 , increased my CH-HDL from 0.50 to 0.59. The bonus: I lost 11 kgs (from 74 to 63). I haven't taken any form of medication. Note: if an individual is on a LCHF diet, it is very normal that they have blood glucose spikes after a high carb meal, that is known as the second meal effect. The second meal phenomenon is due to fact that the metabolism has re-adapted itself to fat (healthy fats) ingestion while on a LCHF which necessitates more bile and less insulin. The same phenomenon would happen to an individual on a high carb diet having fatty meals (not enough bile to help digest). I feel more comfortable with high bile than insulin , would you? By the way, thanks to regular exercise (walking for not less than an hour daily) I noticed an increase in my body lean mass and less fatigue, contrary to what you have quoted and presented as fact. Actually, it is fiction, my case is fact.
    P.S. my sexual performance? My wife is so happy: rigid and sustained erection …

  • My mother definitely lost 25kg and reversed her type 2 diabetes. She has done the hard work, and enjoys high carbs here and there but has found Keto food to be way more fulfilling. Yes her blood sugar level rockets because she was sensitive, but that was only at the start of reintroducing carbs – people would rather tare it down than believe a human will adapt to it's conditions. High BGL should not be the aim, and using it as the argument is far from Keto and just stupid.

  • On mediabiasfacts.com this Dr has been rated as pseudoscience with some elevated health claims. To quote 'Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information, therefore fact checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information.

  • 1/3 of Americans will be diabetic by 2050, and high fat is a big part of the problem, but no the only part. Of course, the sugar is bad, too, the refined foods, and other things, too. Keto = high fat. It's just telling people it's ok what they want to eat; it validates them, so it's easy to convince people; it's self confirmation bias.

  • I noticed these studies were done mainly with Atkins not keto and the keto studies were likely eating less veggies as shown in the article in this video. The problem with most if not all these research studies is that they do not test groups that properly follow healthy keto more likely the keto ppl were eating less veggies too much bad fats etc…if done correctly you should be eating 7-10cups veggies as Dr.Berg tells us and healthy fats not crazy huge amounts either and moderate protein from healthy sources.
    And not sure how you think you are making type 2 diabetes better by not going keto. Yes it is a lifestyle change you cant/shouldn't go back to unhealthy diet that caused the issue to begin with. And ok so you say it makes it worse when you try to eat a toxic amount of sugar in one drink like the glucose test , why would anyone think your body would welcome such a huge amount of toxic sugar after being on clean healthy foods for a long time. This would shock your body plus being fat adapted your body is now used to burning fat for fuel then you give a huge sugar drink to test them! Crazy and as much as I would love to go back to eating carbs and sugars like honey those are the very things that caused insulin resistance! How else would you recommend fixing it? I saw you mention a few things one was surgery not sure how that works but anyway who wants meds or surgery when you can eat lots of vegetables , some berries too on keto don't go crazy eating all the wrong fats and you shouldn't eat more fat then veggies either! In fact once you are fat adapted you can live off you're own fat stores and you cut back on dietary fat you don't need to keep eating high amounts of fat. Listen to Dr.Berg explain how to follow the diet properly to live a healthy life. It is meant to be a forever lifestyle change for the better not a on and off diet

  • You have a video where you define the ketogenic diet you are speaking of ? You keep on mentioning Atkins, Atkins is similar but not the same. Responsible ketogenic diet educators always emphasize the importance of vegetables and moderate protein. Pls look up Dr Fung and Dr. Westerman’s work one is a nephrologist and one heads obesity clinic at duke university for past 20 years.

  • I had suspected this for some time. (If it sounds to good to be true….) I am very interested in what you might have to say about fasting and Diabetes. Thanks for all the hard work you and your team do for us!
