Reviewer: Ivan Stamenković I have the best job in the world. I’m a doctor. No! Believe me that’s not why. I’m an obesity doctor. I have the honor of working
with the group of people subject to the last widely
accepted prejudice: being fat. These people have suffered a lot
by the time they see me: shame, guilt, blame
and outright discrimination. The attitude that many take,
including those in healthcare, is that these people
are to blame for their situation. If they could just control themselves,
they wouldn’t be overweight, and they are not motivated to change. Please let me tell you
this is not the case. The blame, if we’ve got
to extend some here, has been with our advice. And it’s time we change that. Obesity is a disease, it’s not something
created by lack of character. It’s a hormonal disease,
and there are many hormones involved. And one of the main ones
is a hormone called insulin. Most obese individuals
are resistant to this hormone, insulin. So, what does that mean exactly,
to be resistant to insulin? Well, insulin resistance is essentially
a state of pre-pre-type 2 diabetes. Insulin’s job is to drive glucose,
or blood sugar, into the cells where it can be used. In a nutshell, when someone
is insulin resistant, they are having trouble
getting blood sugar where it needs to go, into those cells. And it just can’t hang out
in the blood after we eat or we would all have a diabetic crisis
after every meal! So, when someone is resistant to insulin, the body’s response to this
is to just make more of it. And insulin levels will rise and rise, and for a while, years even,
this is going to keep up, and blood sugar levels can remain normal. However, usually it can’t keep up forever, and even those elevated levels of insulin are not enough to keep blood sugar
in the normal range. So it starts to rise. That’s diabetes. It probably won’t surprise you to hear that most of my patients
have insulin resistance or diabetes. And if you are sitting there thinking,
“Phew, that’s not me,” you actually might want to think again, because almost 50% of adult Americans
now have diabetes or prediabetes. That is almost 120 million of us. But that’s hardly everyone
who has issues with insulin. Because as I was saying, people have elevated insulin levels
due to insulin resistance for years, even decades, before the diagnosis
of even prediabetes is made. Plus it’s been shown that 16-25%
of normal-weight adults are also insulin resistant. So, in case you’re keeping track,
this is a heck of a lot of us. So, the trouble
with insulin resistance is: If it goes up, we are at great risk
for developing type 2 diabetes. But also, insulin makes us hungry, and the food we eat
much more likely to be stored as fat. Insulin is our fat storage hormone. So we can start to see
how it’s going to be a problem for diseases like obesity
and metabolic issues like diabetes. But what if we traced this problem
back to the beginning, and we just didn’t have
so much glucose around that insulin needed to deal with? Let’s take a look at how that could be. Everything you eat is either a carbohydrate,
a protein or a fat, and they all have very different effect
on glucose and therefore insulin levels, as you can see on the graph. So when we eat carbohydrates, our insulin and glucose
are going to spike up fast. And with proteins it looks a lot better. But take a look at what happens
when we eat fat. Essentially nothing, a flat line. And, this is going to wind up
being very important. So, now I want to translate
that graph for you into a real-world situation. I want you to go back and think about the last time you ate
an American version of Chinese food. We all know there’s rules
associated with this, right? And the first rule is:
You’re going to overeat. Because the stop signal doesn’t get sent until you are literally
busting at the seams. Rule number two is:
In an hour you’re starving. Why? Well, because the rice in that meal
caused glucose and insulin to skyrocket, which triggered hunger,
fat storage and cravings. So, if you are insulin
resistant to begin with, and your insulin levels
are already higher, you really are hungrier all the time. And we have this setup: Eat carbs, your glucose goes up,
your insulin goes up, and you have hunger and fat storage. So, how do we recommend
to these people to eat, because it seems like that would be
really important, and it is. Let’s focus just on type 2 diabetes, because the general recommendations
are to tell patients with type 2 diabetes to consume 40 to 65 grams
of carbohydrates per meal, plus more at snacks. Trust me on this, that’s a lot of carbs. And remember what’s going to happen
to glucose and insulin, blood sugar and insulin, when we eat them? Yes, we are essentially recommending that they eat exactly
what’s causing their problem. Sound crazy? It really, really is. Because, at its root, diabetes
is a state of carbohydrate toxicity. We can’t get the blood sugar
into the cells, and that causes a problem
in the short term. But the long-term consequences
are even greater. And insulin resistance is essentially
a state of carbohydrate intolerance. So why, oh why, do we want to continue
to recommend to people to eat them? The American Diabetes
Association guidelines specifically state that there is
inconclusive evidence to recommend
a specific carbohydrate limit. But those guidelines go right on
to say what we all know: Our carbohydrate intake is the single,
biggest factor in blood sugar levels, and therefore need for medication. These guidelines then go on to say: Hey look, if you are taking
certain diabetic medications, you actually have to eat carbs,
otherwise your blood sugar can go too low. Okay, so let’s take a look at the vicious cycle
that that advice just set up. So it’s: Eat carbs so you have
to take medicine, then you have to eat more carbs so you avoid the side-effect
of those medications, and around and around we go. Even worse is that nowhere
in the ADA guidelines is the goal of reversing type 2 diabetes. This needs to be changed, because type 2 diabetes can be reversed,
in many, if not most, situations, especially if we start early. Not only do we need
to let people know this, but we have to start giving them
the practical advice so they can do this. Consider carbs. First, here’s a shocker for you:
We don’t need them. Seriously! Our minimum daily requirement
for carbohydrates is zero. We have essential amino acids,
those are proteins, essential fatty acids, but, nope, no essential carb. A nutrient is essential if we have to have it to function,
and we can’t make it from something else. We make glucose,
plenty of it, all the time, it’s called gluconeogenesis. So, we don’t need them, the overconsumption of them
is making us very sick, yet we are continuing
to recommend to patients to consume close to, if not more than, half of their total energy intake
every day from them. It doesn’t make sense. Let’s talk about what does. Cutting carbs, a lot. Yes, in my clinic we teach patients to eat with carbs
as the minority of their intake, not the majority. So, how does that work? Well, when our patients
decrease their carbs their glucose goes down,
and they don’t need as much insulin. So those insulin levels drop, and fast. And this is very important, because a study looking at our National Health
and Nutrition Examination Survey data, better known as NHANES, showed that the single,
biggest risk factor for coronary artery disease is insulin resistance. It is responsible
for a whopping 42% of heart attacks. Low-carb intervention works so fast that we can literally pull people off
of hundreds of units of insulin in days to weeks. One of my favorite stories
is a very recent one. A young gal, but who had an almost
20-year history of type 2 diabetes, came in when a physician from another
clinic told her she was just sick, and she’d probably get used to it. Her diabetes was way out of control. This despite the fact that she
was on multiple medications, including almost 300 units of insulin, that was being injected into her
continuously every day via a pump. All of this, remember,
blood sugar still out of control. So we put her on a low-carb diet,
and now let’s fast-forward four months. She lost weight, yes,
but, better than that, sick no more. Her blood sugar levels
were now normal all of the time. This on, get this, no diabetes medication. Gone was the 300 units of insulin, no more insulin pump, no more pricking her finger
multiple times each day, gone, all of it, no more diabetes. One of the greatest joys of my job
is to be able to tell a patient like this that they no longer have diabetes, and we ceremoniously take it off
their problem list together. So, are they cured, is this a miracle? We’ll leave that grandstanding
to Doctor Oz. Cured would imply that it can’t come back. And if they start eating
excessive carbs again, it will. So no not cured, but they don’t have
diabetes any longer. It’s resolved, and it can stay that way
as long as we keep away the cause. So, what does this look like then?
How does somebody eat this way? Well, first, let me tell you
what it’s not. Low-carb is not zero carb,
and it is not high protein. These are common criticism
that are so frustrating because they are not true. Next, if we take the carbs out,
what are we going to put in? Because, remember,
there’s only three macronutrients: if one goes down, one has to go up. My patients eat fat, and a lot of it. “What!?” you say. What’s going
to happen when you eat fat? Well, let me tell you, you’re
going to be happy, because fat tastes great,
and it is incredibly satisfying. (Applause) (Laughter) But, remember, fat
is the only macronutrient that’s going to keep our glucose –
blood sugar – and insulin levels low, and that is so important. So, I want you to now hear
my simple rules for eating. These rules, you have to remember,
are even going to be more important if you are one of the tens
of millions of Americans who have trouble with insulin levels. Rule number one: If it says light, low fat
or fat-free, stays in grocery store. because they took the fat out,
they put carbs and chemicals in. Rule number two: Eat food. The most important rule
in low-carb nutrition: Real food does not come in a box, and no-one should have to tell you
real food is natural. You should know that when you look at it. Don’t eat anything you don’t like. And eat when you’re hungry;
don’t eat when you’re not, no matter what the clock says. And number five is a simple way
to remember what we want to avoid. No GPS: no grains,
no potatoes and no sugar. That last one is a biggie,
right, no grains? Na, no grains. But we have to have them. Nope, they’re a carb. But whole grains are so good for us. Well, first of all, there are actually
very few foods out there that are truly whole grain
even when they say they are. Most foods that purport themselves
to be wholegrain are highly processed
and the fiber benefit ruined. Or they’re coming
with highly refined flour, usually both of these things. So if you are one of the truly
insulin-sensitive people, you can eat real, whole grain. But if you’re in the enormous slice
of our population with insulin issues, it’s making things worse. So what if you are one
of the real insulin-sensitive people? Can you still eat this way? Yes! I am a great example. Over a year ago I decided
I would cut my carbs as low as I recommend
to my diabetic patients. Now, it’s not mandatory for my health
like it is for theirs; I’m not insulin resistant,
so would this be a problem? No! That’s just the thing. Unless you have
an exceedingly rare syndrome, then cutting carbs
is going to be good for you, even if it’s not necessary. I want to show you a couple of pictures
of my radical food. So, this is a common breakfast
in my house. So does it look like
I just broke my own rule? I didn’t because this muffin
is made with coconut flour. I bake all the time still. I just use non-grain-based flours:
coconut, almond, hazelnut, flax. They make delicious things. And this is a typical dinner in my house
with a typical starch. That would be the sautéed mushrooms. No, my patients and I eat delightful food
all of the time and enjoy it. But what about the research on this? I mean is this just anecdotal
evidence now from my clinic? No! There are dozens of
randomized controlled trials looking at low-carb intervention for things like diabetes,
cardiovascular risk factors, obesity. They’re consistent. It works! There are even a large number
of studies showing that low-carb nutrition
decreases inflammatory markers, which is making it really exciting
for diseases like cancer. We just finished a study in our clinic. And what we did is, we took 50 type 2 diabetic patients that were treated with
our low-carb-high-fat-based program, and we compared them to 50 patients who were treated with the ADA guidelines. And after six months, not only did we find
a significant metabolic advantage for the low-carb group, but, and let’s face it, this is important,
a huge cost savings. Our analysis showed that our patients
could save over $2,000 a year just on the diabetes meds
they were no longer taking. Just think how fast that adds up. We are in a diabetes epidemic now that we are spending
$250 billion a year on in this country. So, I want to show you a slide now that demonstrates where
those savings are coming from. So this is looking
just at the insulin difference in the two groups after six months. And what we can see is that the low-carb group
was able to decrease their insulin by almost 500 units a day. Whereas in the ADA treated group, they had to increase their insulin
by almost 350 units a day. Two important things. Number one: Insulin is expensive. And number two: Not all the people
in this study were even on insulin, which makes these results
even more impressive. But what I would say is
that this graph really represents two different approaches
to treating this disease. The first, our group,
with the goal of reversing disease, meaning they need less medicine. And the second group, which very clearly
aligns with the ADA guidelines, which state that diabetes
is a progressive disease, requiring more medicine over time. Progressive unless we take away the cause. So, what’s the problem then? Why is this not everywhere?
Why isn’t low carb the norm? There’s two big reasons. Number one: status quo.
It is hard to break. There are many agendas involved. We got this notion that low fat
was the way to go decades ago. But a recent study just came out showing that there was
zero randomized control evidence to recommend to Americans
to remove the fat from our diet. And that’s how the carbs got added in. It was essentially a huge experiment
on millions of people, and it failed miserably. The second reason we don’t
see it everywhere is money. Don’t be fooled, there’s a lot of money
to be made from keeping you sick. And what we see is,
with these specialty guideline panels, they are stacked
with conflict of interest. So, the solution to the diabetes epidemic
in my clinic is exceedingly clear: Stop using medicine to treat food. And for a disease
whose root cause is carbohydrates, take away the carbohydrates,
or at least cut them, so we can remember
what we used to know. We knew it a long time ago, this was said thousands of years ago, and we need, in this day and age,
to get back to that notion. Thank you. (Applause)

  1. I have been doing Keto since Jan and have reduced my daily units of insulin from 58 to 46. I will continue with this for the rest of my life.

  2. There are some animals that have a gene that enable them to make their own vitamin C from glucose. Humans have this gene but it does not work (it apparently stopped working in humans 35 million years ago). If there was a gene therapy that would give people a working version of that gene, some of that excess glucose could be converted to Vitamin C which the body needs. There is a gene therapy similar to this that is being developed for Hunter's syndrome. In Hunter's syndrome, there is a defective gene that does not produce the enzymes to break down a complex sugar that causes it to accumulate and cause damage to the body, not unlike type 2 diabetes. The gene therapy that is being developed inserts a working copy of that defective gene. I think that getting a working copy of the gene that produces vitamin C from glucose would help people live with type 2 diabetes without having to take as much insulin.

    I think that pharmaceutical companies should do is develop a drug that would do the work of that gene by supplying the necessary enzymes to convert excess glucose to Vitamin C in the liver. Forcing the body to take increasing ineffective doses of insulin is not a smart way to go about it.

  3. Prednisone was utilized to treat my pneumonia, nevertheless, the medication also stimulated the increase of my blood glucose levels that led to diabetes. My A1C soared to 10.1 during that time. Luckily, I have learn about this easy guideline “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). I have undergone a retesting 2 months later and also the end result signifies that (my A1C had decreased to 6.8 just .3 above normal)..

  4. Dr. Sarah Hallberg such a caring and sweet person. I will have to say I am very excited about starting the treatment plan from Virta. With such intelligent Physicians like her I want to follow this plan and see the results of better health.

  5. Not sure about eating more fats but one thing I am sure of is that eating a plant based diet (lifestyle) can reverse type 2 diabetes.

  6. Sigh. "Carbs" aren't the problem. HIGH GLYCEMIC INDEX carbs are the problem. Low GI carbs (most fruits, most vegetables) won't spike blood sugar, and will go a long way towards keeping bowels regular.

  7. Potatoes are a prominent source of potassium for a lot of Americans. Potassium is a particularly important electrolyte. If low/no carb diet is used, where do we get our potassium?

  8. I went through a similar transformation as many people in the comments. Down 70 pounds, no medication now, and a1c from 11 to 5.5. The one tool that really helped me was a continuous glucose monitor like freestyle libra. It requires a prescription and insurance will most likely not covered for type two; however it was worth it for me. It gave me the ability to understand exactly how the foods I was eating changed my glucose levels. Seems simple but was very powerful.

  9. How can you say there is no need for carbs. As a physicians you must certainly know that carbs included vegetables and fruit. It sounds very misleading.

  10. This goes against the vegan docs who lower med requirements… reverse diabetes in type IIs and decrease insulin resistance in Type 1's by decreasing fats that block insulin from doing its job of allowing glucose into the cells.

  11. Great talk here. Several months ago my Sugar was 311 & rising. Doctor wanted to put me on Insulin. I panicked & refused to take Insulin. Medicine & diet has my Sugar at 109 now. I avoided insulin. I need to find Dr. Sarah Hallberg's clinic because I want to get off ALL medicine. Good luck to us all.

  12. If whole grain and wheat is a no go, than what kinda breaded sandwich can I eat? No bread altogether? That's super difficult to consider, I'm barely type 1 at 6.5 and I'd hate to not be able to eat bread or brown rice

  13. I provided help to two individuals who are coping with Type two diabetes by discussing them “Vαnοjο Fivu”. One of these was able to lessen his HA1c to 5.9 and triumphed in curing his diabetic issues. The condition of the other person has greatly improved. His fasting blood sugar was down to 110mg/dL and he is no longer prone to heart trauma, losing his legs and arms, and also eye impairment and neuropathy..

  14. You don't have to live your whole life with diabetes. I found a way to reverse my diabetes thanks to this great books and I hope it will help some others too => diabetesremedynatural. com

  15. There are other factors too. Gum disease, including plain old gingivitis, makes diabetes much worse. We had been hearing that for a while but when I really started to believe it was when one particular patient with severe diabetes came in. His gums were bad and so was his oral hygiene. We did 4 quadrants of root planing and went over how to brush and floss and the next time he came in he said they had had to cut his meds in half because his numbers were so much better.

  16. This amazing woman safe me. I did what she said here, and completely reversed type 2 diabetes in months! against what my doctor recommended. Now I'm saving other people on my own. Wake up

  17. I am walking proof of your conclusions. At 65 years old i was diagnosed with high blood pressure and put on medication. At 66 years old I was diagnosed as a diabetic with a 7.1 A1C and my Doctor decided to wait for three months as a confirmation. After watching your video it made so much sense to me so I decided to go keto and some IF. Well just as you suggested after two months I returned to the Doctor and my A1C was now 5.4. 🙂 Better yet i check my blood pressure daily and to my surprise my blood pressure had dropped. It started at 160 to 180 over 100 and after medication it came down to 130 to 140 over 89. After two months on keto my blood pressure dropped to 110 over 75. Thank you so much for your talk as I am no longer diabetic and my Doctor is talking about taking me off my blood pressure medicine. What a relief!!

  18. Big Pharma and Big Processed Food has another angle of attack now, it's called veganism. By it's nature, a very high carb diet touted as healthier than eating meat and animal products. Some will argue you can do LCHF as a vegan, but what are you going to eat, nothing but nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils all day? Anyone with common sense can tell that's not healthy either, don't fall into that trap.

  19. My brother cured his diabetes and high blood pressure on a whole food, plant based diet. It was easy and he was off his insulin in 3 weeks. He eats what he likes including pasta, rice, toast and peanut butter, oatmeal, vegan burgers. Doesn't have to avoid bread. Check out .Dr. Greger's videos and nonprofit website, 'Nutritionfacts.org'. Three years later his A1C is perfect and his new doctor says that he has a hard time believing that he was ever diabetic. He can eat grains, potatoes and sugar in moderation. He loves his sunflower and flax whole grain bread! He loves chickpea and potato curries, and bowls of oatmeal with mango, bananas and blueberries. He is healthy and hikes long distances. He i so happy to be off of all medications!

  20. As soon as she said you don't need carbs I stopped the video.Todays Diabetes is caused on purpose by processed food poor people buy.Easily reversed by eating naturaly grown veggies and meats. Stay inside when they spray chemtrails.

  21. I did what she said, even before I see this video, low carb it's what's needed for ty2 diabites, plus changing the less moving lifestyle

  22. Sounds to me, more like they are CHROMIUM DEFICIENT…look it up – same symptoms of not being able to process glucose…without chromium.

  23. Here's a news flash people – The A1C test was NEVER meant to be used to diagnose diabetes. It was designed in the early 1970s, to help diabetics keep track of the efficacy of their diets. For more than 35 years, doctors wrongfully used it to diagnose diabetes. About mid-2000s, the FDA APPROVED IT TO DIAGNOSE DIABETES! But doctors had been using it without FDA approval for more than three decades. They finally just rubber-stamped it to keep from prosecuting all of the doctors. Look it up yourselves. I found the info on a diabetes foundation web site.

  24. I am diabetic type 2 weigh before 15stone 3 I am on ketogenic diet… Lost weight now 14stone 2…no carbs… I am a newbie.. Dumped my meds.

  25. Thank you for the video. Boy it's good to hear you.!!! Ps I am hiding from my doctor at the moment. Plus I do intermediate fasting!!

  26. You're saying ZERO carbs should be the norm but ALL cultures, all races eat some amount of carbs. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Indians, Arabs, Africans everybody. It's just that Americans (and other western industrial countries) take abnormal (excessive) amounts of carbohydrates and sugars in their diet.

  27. I have utilized prednisone as remedy for my pneumonia not knowing that it has risen my blood sugar levels and eventually caused diabetes. At that time, my A1C is 10.1, that is quite high. The good news is, I`ve learn about this easy guide “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). I`ve undergone a retesting Two months later and the end result signifies that (my A1C had decreased to 6.8 just .3 above normal)..

  28. I have diabetes 2 with symptoms of progressive weight loss and frequent urination daily in the past 1 year.  So I wonder if any solution for reverse diabetes 2 but with symptoms of weight loss and urination history. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks so much!

  29. Thanks for the video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you researched – Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (do a google search)? It is an awesome exclusive product for reversing diabetes minus the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate after many years got astronomical results with it.

  30. Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your opinion. Have you tried – Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (search on google)? It is a good exclusive guide for reversing diabetes without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my buddy at last got excellent results with it.

  31. Excellent video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about – Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (do a search on google)? It is a good one off guide for reversing diabetes without the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cooworker at very last got excellent success with it.

  32. All along I was thinking what was said in the last minute: the big pharma need people to be on their expensive meds.

  33. This sounds good. But how do you expect the CEOs of pharmaceutical companies to pay for their mansions, yachts, luxury penthouses, mistresses, and imported cars?

  34. Yes, Cancer is another one where it pays to keep people sick and not cured. outstanding talk, thank you for the information Doc.

  35. One day I noticed a Blood Blister on my left leg. I went the Clinic and the Doctor called for a blood test. It revealed my A1C was 11.4. Doctor says I have type 2 Diabetes. She prescribes 3 meds. I took them for 2 weeks. side effects were to great. I had to stop taking them. I found a natural product, Syntra 5, that works on blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol. In 3 months my A1C was 6.0. 3 months later 5.8 and 3 more months 5.4. My sugar reading since are always 110.

  36. Reversing the insulin resistance is the key! But pharmaceutical companies don't want this to be known. Right know I am trying the Halki Diabetes Remedy (@t. My auncle reversed type 2 diabetes and melted 40 pounds using this method.

  37. All so true. Great video. I’ve been doing Keto for awhile. Lost weight, feel great. A lot of family and friends tell me man you got to eat carbs or you will die!!! I just laugh on the inside and roll on because I know better. People have been taught to eat incorrectly in school, at home, and by doctors. The American carbohydrate diet will kill you. Research Keto diet on youtube. So much great information.

  38. It's amazing to hear a practicing doctor say this! Not to hard on the eyes either! My wife and I have recently began removing the sugar added items from our diet. Not tossing everything way, but as we eat it sparingly, we do NOT replace it!

    I am especially interested in using the non gain flours and such for baking.

    It is so much fun to cook real food at home. Using spices and herbs I have had in the house and around the yard growing, it's neat that I really can make sauces and soups that taste really good without canned help!

    Thank you!

  39. I’m 65 years old. On 6/5/2019 my doctor had my blood drawn and the result was that my blood-sugar reading was 341. I was prescribed 2000 mg of Metformin per day and was told that in 30 days an additional drug would be added to the current prescription. After this appointment, instead of taking the drug – I started a zero carb diet. I ate 100% protein. 30 days later, I lost 18.5 lbs. and my blood-sugar reading was 88 for the day and 98 for a 30-day average. 60 days later, 1 lost another 9.5 Lbs. for a total of 28 Lbs. and my daily reading was 103 and 93 for a 30-day average. Now, 128 days later my total weight loss is 32 Lbs. from when I started the protein diet and my daily reading today was 89 and my 30-day average was 94. See Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution 1972 book – The Atkins Diet. I hope this helps someone with type-two diabetes that is wanting to control their situation with food as opposed to using drugs. The drugs won’t get rid of diabetes they will only control it – maybe? God Bless.

  40. When she said a diabetic patient can save 2k a year by not spending on meds alone, I started wondering, whether she’s still alive… ::

  41. I was Type 1 Diabetic and I got rid of that disease within a year by cutting out all sugars; even the doctor could not believe that I had cured myself! I thought is was the pancreas which gets affected by diabetes and not the kidneys as so many say on here?

  42. whats sad is that 80% of any species are going to be followers/drone/worker bees(incapable of hacking their conformity circuits) and hence they will never ever be able to take the red pill (unless Galacto-klein Smith makes a red pill)

  43. My dear God bless this true Doctor who has been so open and human that has resisted the temptation of money over truth and empathy for her fellow man. You are 1 in 10,000,000 million!

  44. Okay, who here named their first son "Keto"? lol! j/k! I've read all the comments – you all keep up the great work for your future great health!

  45. caloric restriction on eggs has reversed it in 2 weeks the faster it happens the faster it comes back..so mild restriction and life changes can change the condition

  46. A surprising side effect from my low carb diet; I no longer have acne problems. The inflammation of my skin almost disappeared in 5 WEEKS. Years of medicine that barely did anything and cost a lot of money, and now I finally found a cure!

  47. She is right, I have problems fasting for a blood test for probably the last three years, this caused me to investigate and I told my doctor that I believe I'm insulin resistance about a year ago, I just left the doctors with Metformin and a blood glucose meter. The doctor wants me to talk to the dietician, I don't want to, I've already put myself on a keto diet. Ditch the carbs, I would love to meet this lady.

  48. Holy grail! Holy grain video
    I seriously can't thank you more.
    My mum is into diabetes nd taking a lots of medication from last 3 years nd now! Im gonna do something about it! Thanks ted x nd Doc for letting the world know the actual truth behind mafia s
    Love from India!

  49. One of her main points is that “carbs spike insulin levels” (like many before her), but I believe that newer research has proven this not to be true for everyone. What spikes insulin for me is different than what does it for you. I can deal very well with white potatoes and rice, but have other carbs (or other things) spike my levels. I think this talk is very simplistic overall, but if it helps people stop eating junk food, that’s a step.
