DOES THE KETO DIET KILL? Doctor Reviews Low Carb Diets and Mortality

Hey guys, I'm Siobhan a second-year medical resident Today we're tackling a super controversial issue and that's The Keto Diet The question is – is the keto diet actually making you live longer? or could it be actually killing you faster? The keto diet is a very low carbohydrate diet About 75% of calories come from fat 20% from protein and only 5% from carbs It's become one of the most popular diets online and it's been praised for weight loss, heart health, diabetes management and some even believe it fights cancer

But others think it's probably just a fad diet and it's just gonna come and go Just this week, there was a groundbreaking article from The Lancet which totally changed the conversation It's an article that looked at how much carbohydrates people are eating and if that affected life expectancy By the end of this video you should be able to make an educated decision about what you want to do with your diet And then I'm gonna *urge* you to share this with people you care about because this could actually affect how long they live *violin intro plays* So those of you who've been following my journey in the hospital at the new doctor know that about six weeks ago I started the keto diet and the reason I did that is because Overnight I find they're just so many chips and snacks and candy and

I- This whole year I just feel like I have strayed from my normal habits and so I kind of just needed like a reset and I figured that keto would do that And it did like I lost a couple of pounds I put on last year and I haven't been having sugar cravings It was great

So this week when I was flipping through my computer I saw this article And I figured it was gonna tell me that the lower the carbs you eat the longer you live But that's not exactly what it says So the study started about thirty years ago, when they recruited a whole bunch of adults from four different communities in the US They recruited about 15,000 adults and then had them do surveys and they kept track of their health and they tracked them over about 30 years *okay, that's deep* So let's pretend these skittles represent the people in the study First let's divide them into the amount of carbs they eat in a day The yellow ones the low-carb group And so these people about less than 40% of their calories from carbs

The green ones of the moderate carb group So these guys bought about half of the calories from carbs And the red ones are the high carb group where they got over 70% of their calories from carbs Of course this is a simplified model and in the study they worked with really fancy statistical models to get lots of accurate information So looking at mortality within these groups

It turned out the low-carb (yellow) group and the high-carb (red) group actually died faster than that middle green group So it looked like Goldilocks and the three bears The middle 50% carb group actually lived the longest And you can see that it has this U-shape, and we actually call that a U-shaped relationship They're estimating that in this in the low-carb group and the medium-carb group, That was almost a four-year difference in their life expectancy

That's like high school That's university That's so many life experiences That's huge I mean, we can't ignore that Definitely not what I expected

Definitely a huge shock to hear Question 2* So then the next logical question is if you have lower carbs you're eating more fats and proteins Does it matter what types of fats and proteins you're actually eating? So they went back to the database and they looked at all the people and they wanted to see the group that eats mostly animal products So they're eating meats and cheese, lamb pork, beef, chicken all of that compared to the people who are eating plant-based proteins and fats So they're eating nuts and peanut butters and seeds and they're having lots of vegetables And unfortunately all those meat lovers out there, it was very clear that people eating plant-based proteins and fats were living longer than those who ate the animal proteins and fats

And that's tough for me I actually really love a good steak *pleasure* Ooo boiii <3 owww So you might be thinking : "Hold on Hold on Siobhan I don't live in one of those four communities in the US maybe these results don't really apply to me?" Like me I live in Canada

I don't live in the US But the authors were smart and they thought of this So they did what we call a 'meta analysis' Where they took studies that were similar and had results from all around the world and put it all together to see if those results hold true So when they took the data from other parts in North America, Europe, Asia They found the same results People eating the plant-based diets we're living longer

So I really don't think that we can ignore these results Okay, so after all of this what is the main take-home message? Basically, you probably shouldn't be eating a low-carb diet that's high in meat products because it would seem these people are actually dying faster Is that the end of keto? Well, you know if you choose to do keto the recommendations from this study would be that you should be making it all about plant-based protein So lots of nuts and vegetables and healthy oils That's what you should be getting your protein and your fats from So basically don't make the mistake of thinking that keto is just about bacon and fat and grease Because that's probably not the healthiest thing for you Okay So now that we have the information we need to decide how are we gonna actually change our own behaviors to reflect what we believe

And I swear that is the hardest thing: It's actually changing your behavior So with you guys as my witness, here is my plan : I am gonna be focusing on the sources and the types of foods that I'm eating rather than sort of counting carbs I'm gonna be making sure I'm minimizing the amount of meats and animal products that I'm eating I also need to minimize the huge amount of carbs that I think I was eating before With all those treats in the middle of the night and the sugar and the candy so, you know, a high-carb isn't good either and I'm gonna try to hit that sweet spot of carbs by having lots of vegetables and legumes and all those things that I actually love

But I just need to make sure I prep and plan in advance so that they're ready for me to have in the day What's your plan gonna be? If you want to commit to something write it in the comments below I will read it I'll be your witness And I know it's gonna be a controversial topic

So hit me with your comments I actually want to start a discussion, a dialogue I will read your comments and I want to hear what you have to state And then I want you to send this video to people that you care about Because looking at this evidence, you can see that making changes now could actually save them years on their life

Anyway next week, I'll be seeing you guys from the hospital vlogging So don't forget to subscribe and turn on your notifications if you don't want to miss that Otherwise, I'll be chatting with you guys next week So bye for now <3 #livelonger

KETO DIET Does low carb and intermittent fasting really work for weight loss?

Hey everybody, it's Chris Gibson and today we are going to talk about weight loss, fad diets, or one of them in particular, I'm going to be covering several of these over the next several episodes, but today we're going to talk about what I call Keto Crazy, and that's the Keto diet, which is basically a diet that is designed to have your body to switch over from burning carbs and sugars as energy and not your fat cells, or the fat that you have put away in storage, to burning that fat So the questions come up, what is it? how does it work? is it healthy? I'm going to give you a link in the video description box to an article that's going to explain in detail how the diet works and if you're going to follow this type of diet it has really good instructions on what to expect and what you can do to lose weight using the Keto diet

But basically from my perspective, from a health and wellness perspective, it is a diet that works, I will tell you that If you follow it, you will lose weight, you will burn fat I have done similar diets to it in the past, never for a long term, sort of to boost my weight loss, especially when I go back into weight training or any kind of workouts that I'm going to be doing on a regular basis, I do tend to lower my carb and sugar intake, almost to nothing for several days The trick to this diet is for some people in a few days they begin to notice a difference, some people it takes longer And because it "messes with" or changes the blood profile for a lot of people and it has impact on the liver, it is something that you really need to think about before you try to use it

I'm a big idea person about balance, about long term decisions, about long term changes, equal long term affects A lot of fad diets, people go on them for a while, they get maybe close to where they want to be or maybe they get where they want to be and then they are right back there were they were with the same old habits So one of the key things I'm going to be talking about, as we move forward is how to change habits, and make them life long changes that don't feel like you are imprisoned or giving anything up There are ways to do that But basically how the diet works is you remove sugar and carbs down to less than 2 grams which is you know, not a lot of carbs

Some people say 25 grams, but basically you can have no more carbohydrates than in 3 slices of bread, or a half a cup of yogurt, something like that Sugar free even So you are removing all of that, and all you're taking are proteins and fats, and it's very high amounts of fats So what does the body do with that? Well at first the body has a little bit of a they call it Keto flu believe it or not The body has a little bit of an adjustment phase to go from burning sugar and carbohydrates, which it makes you crave over to burning proteins and fats And so, after a few days, and we'll use this in a general sense because it's different for everyone, and there are test kits that you can purchase and tell when you are in ketosis, which is when you are actually switched over from burning sugar and carbohydrates to fats But basically when it makes the switch over, then your fat cells begin to supply the energy for your brain and your metabolic system

So you're now burning fat, you're burning the fat that you are eating, but you're also burning fat that you've stored So rapid weight loss does happen with a lot of people with this especially at first Now believe it or not, the rapid weight loss that people experience in the first several days of the Keto diet have more to do with the expellation of the carbohydrates through water Basically what your body is doing is it's depleting your carbohydrates, your blood sugar is coming down, you're producing more insulin and you are actually expelling more water, so even fat when fat is burned, the fat cell is burned and destroyed and used up it leaves your body as water So a lot of water weight goes out the first three to five days, so people see you know, 2, 3, 4, 5 pounds weight loss in a week, and that's a lot of weight loss

Then it sort of tapers off The trick to this diet is that you have to be very very strict because the minute you reintroduce sugars, carbohydrates, anything like that, fruits, any of those things that turn into carbohydrates, the body switches back So the tough part about the diet is to sustaining the discipline of the diet, which is again going to be in that link that I provide you in the video description box to make that work Now is it dangerous? Yes and no They have used this diet on children who have seizures, epileptic seizures, quite successfully and it's made quite a difference in them

They have used this diet with people who have Type 2 Diabetes which has helped control their blood sugar problems Again those situations are where a persons body is already having a problem and we are doing something to kind of change the chemistry and change the working order of what the body is doing in order to give it an affect This is for weight loss, so you have to be very very careful If you take it too long and you take it too far it can make you sick You can get ketoacidosis which is a problem where your body has produced so much of the ketones from the Keto diet that you are on, that it could no longer switch back to the carbohydrates very well

So you have blood sugar spikes, People can have liver problems There have been some deaths attributed to this but I think that is in the most severe case So what you have to do is weigh what your goals are If your goal is to jump start your weight loss, and it is to try to redefine your diet, then taking all of those things out like sugars and even some of the dairy products, you know and taking out this isn't Atkins, I'm going to go over the Atkins diet, it is a little different, it allows more carbohydrates, but in the Keto diet, it's very high fat, high protein So the thing you have to mind is if you're, again, trying to jump start things and you're going to do this for a week to two weeks to kind of jump start your weight loss, it's great, there's nothing wrong with it as long as you don't feel anything going on that's negative Now I will say you need to check with your medical professional, whether it's your doctor, you're whoever you are using, to make sure it's ok for you to go on a diet in the first place because everyone's health is in a different level So what I'm telling you is, does the diet work? Yes

Is it effective? Yes Is it dangerous? In some cases, so you'll want to go see your doctor to make sure it's ok, that they know what you are doing and can monitor you for the changes that are going to be coming to your blood profile and your liver, they want to keep up with that So it is an option, it's not one I would choose, but it is an option for you As we move forward, I'm going to be talking about other options that I think are better, but a lot of people I know, a lot of my friends are on this diet and it's been effective for them, and they haven't had any problems so I have to give it kind of a B, B+ for effectiveness and safety So if you have not subscribed to the channel and you are interested in learning more about these diets, please do so, so that you get the notification when I put the videos up, there's a little notification bell if you aren't familiar with YouTube, that you click and it will send you an email when these are up

I don't want you to miss anything And the biggest thing for me is comments, likes, asking me questions, if you don't find all the information you need in the link that I provide in the description box below, ask me a question, I usually get back to them withing a couple of days, usually one day, but at least a couple of days so questions are very very important I want to help you make the best choices and decisions for yourself That's my goal That's a goal of this channel

So, you know, take the time, go through the videos, they will be organized by subject matter and take what you can from it, learn what you can from me, and make your life better for yourself, I mean that's the goal, right?

Does Keto Limit How Many Vegetables You Can Eat?

hi today I want to talk about my biggest pet peeve with criticisms of the ketogenic diet and that is that you can't eat very many vegetables on the ketogenic diet or you have to limit the amount of vegetables you eat or I could never do a diet where I'm not allowed to eat unlimited vegetables okay well pretty much any calorie restricted diet is going to technically limit your amount of vegetables like you can't eat a whole truckload of any kind of vegetable but on the ketogenic diet to stay in ketosis you can have like three heads of lettuce a day I'm sorry I don't eat three heads of lettuce a day you can have like probably five pounds of spinach a day and this is just something this is like a complete myth the problem and this is where you see people coming up with it and then uses it as an excuse so people will eat keto junk food which is fine and there is a place for it but if you're just living on like keto brownies and keto chocolate bars and all of this stuff that has like these weird sugar substitutes in it that are mostly a low carb but they're not completely no car then you're going to use up all of your cart counts which for most people is twenty to thirty a day if you use all of those up on junk food and then you have to say no sorry I can't have that salad with my dinner that's not a vegetable problem that's a you filled up on junk food problem so this is my pet peeve and this is I get a lot of backlash because I've been on keto for like phobia since February so it's been like I don't know six months or something now and if you don't want to do the ketogenic diet that's totally fine with me if it's something you don't agree with it's if it's not something you want to try that's fine but don't use vegetables as an excuse oh I like vegetables too much I could never do the ketogenic diet we eat so many more vegetables when I'm on keto like even because I cook the same meals for my kids as I eat myself and if you click down below you'll see my meal plans of family friendly keto meals to keep you from having to cook more two meals like one for your kids and one for yourself but we eat like pounds of broccoli like on my grocery list or you buy like five pounds of green leafy vegetables every few days this is something only I have a big salad at almost every day in the winter I have more soups just because I like warmer foods in the winter than a big green salad and so I'll have a soup but I'm making with just pounds and pounds of vegetables and my kids eat it it tastes so good they're growing I am thriving but this is not I in no way limit my vegetable intake on the ketogenic diet and the only reason people are having to limit their vegetable intake on the ketogenic diet is because they're filling up on keto junk foods and they used up all their card counts on that so if you have a healthy Whole Foods balanced ketogenic diet it's very very unlikely that you are going to bump yourself out of ketosis in fact I don't think I've ever heard of anyone bumping themselves out of ketosis on spinach or lettuce or broccoli it's the key to junk foods that are gonna bump you out so that was all I just wanted to like I know – mmm address that little issue today and again like I said it's fine if you don't want a – keto it doesn't bother me if you want to do keto I'm super passionate about it just cuz it makes me so happy and it helps me and my family so much we eat so well when I'm on keto that you can click down below for my keto family class and I'd love to help you get started or stay on it if that's something you want to do but if you don't want to do it that's okay but don't blame the vegetables I'll talk to you guys later thanks for watching and I hope you have a good day

DOES THE KETO DIET KILL? Doctor Reviews Low Carb Diets and Mortality

Hey guys, I'm Siobhan a second-year medical resident Today we're tackling a super controversial issue and that's The Keto Diet The question is – is the keto diet actually making you live longer? or could it be actually killing you faster? The keto diet is a very low carbohydrate diet About 75% of calories come from fat 20% from protein and only 5% from carbs It's become one of the most popular diets online and it's been praised for weight loss, heart health, diabetes management and some even believe it fights cancer

But others think it's probably just a fad diet and it's just gonna come and go Just this week, there was a groundbreaking article from The Lancet which totally changed the conversation It's an article that looked at how much carbohydrates people are eating and if that affected life expectancy By the end of this video you should be able to make an educated decision about what you want to do with your diet And then I'm gonna *urge* you to share this with people you care about because this could actually affect how long they live *violin intro plays* So those of you who've been following my journey in the hospital at the new doctor know that about six weeks ago I started the keto diet and the reason I did that is because Overnight I find they're just so many chips and snacks and candy and

I- This whole year I just feel like I have strayed from my normal habits and so I kind of just needed like a reset and I figured that keto would do that And it did like I lost a couple of pounds I put on last year and I haven't been having sugar cravings It was great

So this week when I was flipping through my computer I saw this article And I figured it was gonna tell me that the lower the carbs you eat the longer you live But that's not exactly what it says So the study started about thirty years ago, when they recruited a whole bunch of adults from four different communities in the US They recruited about 15,000 adults and then had them do surveys and they kept track of their health and they tracked them over about 30 years *okay, that's deep* So let's pretend these skittles represent the people in the study First let's divide them into the amount of carbs they eat in a day The yellow ones the low-carb group And so these people about less than 40% of their calories from carbs

The green ones of the moderate carb group So these guys bought about half of the calories from carbs And the red ones are the high carb group where they got over 70% of their calories from carbs Of course this is a simplified model and in the study they worked with really fancy statistical models to get lots of accurate information So looking at mortality within these groups

It turned out the low-carb (yellow) group and the high-carb (red) group actually died faster than that middle green group So it looked like Goldilocks and the three bears The middle 50% carb group actually lived the longest And you can see that it has this U-shape, and we actually call that a U-shaped relationship They're estimating that in this in the low-carb group and the medium-carb group, That was almost a four-year difference in their life expectancy

That's like high school That's university That's so many life experiences That's huge I mean, we can't ignore that Definitely not what I expected

Definitely a huge shock to hear Question 2* So then the next logical question is if you have lower carbs you're eating more fats and proteins Does it matter what types of fats and proteins you're actually eating? So they went back to the database and they looked at all the people and they wanted to see the group that eats mostly animal products So they're eating meats and cheese, lamb pork, beef, chicken all of that compared to the people who are eating plant-based proteins and fats So they're eating nuts and peanut butters and seeds and they're having lots of vegetables And unfortunately all those meat lovers out there, it was very clear that people eating plant-based proteins and fats were living longer than those who ate the animal proteins and fats

And that's tough for me I actually really love a good steak *pleasure* Ooo boiii <3 owww So you might be thinking : "Hold on Hold on Siobhan I don't live in one of those four communities in the US maybe these results don't really apply to me?" Like me I live in Canada

I don't live in the US But the authors were smart and they thought of this So they did what we call a 'meta analysis' Where they took studies that were similar and had results from all around the world and put it all together to see if those results hold true So when they took the data from other parts in North America, Europe, Asia They found the same results People eating the plant-based diets we're living longer

So I really don't think that we can ignore these results Okay, so after all of this what is the main take-home message? Basically, you probably shouldn't be eating a low-carb diet that's high in meat products because it would seem these people are actually dying faster Is that the end of keto? Well, you know if you choose to do keto the recommendations from this study would be that you should be making it all about plant-based protein So lots of nuts and vegetables and healthy oils That's what you should be getting your protein and your fats from So basically don't make the mistake of thinking that keto is just about bacon and fat and grease Because that's probably not the healthiest thing for you Okay So now that we have the information we need to decide how are we gonna actually change our own behaviors to reflect what we believe

And I swear that is the hardest thing: It's actually changing your behavior So with you guys as my witness, here is my plan : I am gonna be focusing on the sources and the types of foods that I'm eating rather than sort of counting carbs I'm gonna be making sure I'm minimizing the amount of meats and animal products that I'm eating I also need to minimize the huge amount of carbs that I think I was eating before With all those treats in the middle of the night and the sugar and the candy so, you know, a high-carb isn't good either and I'm gonna try to hit that sweet spot of carbs by having lots of vegetables and legumes and all those things that I actually love

But I just need to make sure I prep and plan in advance so that they're ready for me to have in the day What's your plan gonna be? If you want to commit to something write it in the comments below I will read it I'll be your witness And I know it's gonna be a controversial topic

So hit me with your comments I actually want to start a discussion, a dialogue I will read your comments and I want to hear what you have to state And then I want you to send this video to people that you care about Because looking at this evidence, you can see that making changes now could actually save them years on their life

Anyway next week, I'll be seeing you guys from the hospital vlogging So don't forget to subscribe and turn on your notifications if you don't want to miss that Otherwise, I'll be chatting with you guys next week So bye for now <3 #livelonger

Dr. Stephen Phinney: Does a ketogenic diet improve fatty liver disease?

This is really exciting There's a really cool paper the other day – maybe it was a few weeks ago – that came out in Cell Metabolism

And the thing that I really like about Cell Metabolism is that they they try to do the translational research between looking at mechanisms and also doing something very practical in humans So they took a group of people with fatty liver and they put them on a ketogenic diet And they found some really interesting things over time So they only did this for two weeks so very different in scale in terms of what we are doing with our trial But they brought the people and they did all of their baseline measurements on them and in just one day they saw significant reduction in fat content in the liver

And I think it was reduced by almost half after fourteen days at the end And then just to make sure that the ketogenic diet was the driver behind that change in their liver fat content After the people ended the study and they went back to consuming their typical diet they brought ten of their subjects back in one to three months later and measure their liver fat content again, and saw it returned almost back up to baseline In just that one to three months after they had completed the intervention So I think this is really interesting and it's showing a lot of promise in terms of different ways that we can use nutrition to treat fatty liver

And you know if we're not if we can cut down some of the fat content and explore some of these mechanisms I think it's going to be a really interesting research area This is a real paradox because again as I said before there is this common myth that you are what you eat And people assume well if you eat a high fat diet then all that fats going to go through your digestive system, and end up in your liver, but that's not what happens Sure The liver becomes very efficient at clearing the fat

Some of it is made into ketones maybe as much as 100g of fat is made in the ketones by the liver each day, when someone is on the well-formulated ketogenic diet So the liver is not the place where the fat goes to hide or reside, when you are keto-adapted And there's more research being done on that My co-author and scientific collaborator and very good friend Dr Jeff Volek at Ohio State University is doing some very precise imaging studies on people on the ketogenic died over a three month period of time, and that research would hopefully be published later this year

And we're looking at that more sophisticated biomarkers in our Lafayette research study and hopefully well we'll be publishing that data shortly as well Yeah this study did a really nice look at some of the underlying mechanisms to show that De Novo lipogensis was actually slowed, they showed the increased rate of ketone protection So they are showing that beta oxidation rates were going up So they did a really nice, I think elegant, job of showing some of those very early changes even before adaptation occurred potentially because they were seeing those changes and 3, 5, 7 days And stepping back a bit just up until four or five years ago there were very few people doing research

Well done research on ketogenic diets In fact, life was kind of lonely back then and we're seeing more and more really top notch research groups getting engaged in this area And I think (A) it's it's good to have more good minds looking at this and you know and again our job is not to prove we're right but you know find out where we're wrong and correct those things And it's really great to see other people coming in who, you know, aren't considered advocates in this area doing high quality research, such as this recent paper in Cell Metabolism
