    Excellent!!!! Too bad people still deny the scientific proof.

  2. Elizabeth Lavet on December 10, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Interesting and helpful presentation Prof. Jeff Volek.

    Thank you

    ….ahh but the meds do not normalize anything. When someone comes up with: is it sustainable-that’s a cue that they’ll put it on a back burner. A scape goat to not going to change. Love your dedication- great presentation.

    LDL come in two forms. The Fluffy A, beneficial ones that help transporting nutrients to the brain. The Bead like B LDL, have the destructive effect.

    Interesting thank you!!!!

    i wanna be on keto diet to gain muscles not to loose weight like others…any advise how to improve ?

  8. Rommel V on December 10, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Good luck telling people to eat low carb. Everybody loves their carbs even if they know it’s not good for them. I have been a nutritionist and personal trainer for a long time and I usually recommend the ketogenic or LCHF approach, but the compliance is very low amongst my clients. I feel like I should add psychiatrist to my resume as well.

    47:48 "Half a trillion people with pre-diabetes in China." ???? hahahhaha!!! He killed the presentation in the end.

  10. Gisel Nelson on December 10, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    That was awesome, thank you for sharing.

  11. Ino Gsus on December 10, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    Half a trillion people with pre-diabetes? 7 billion people in the world so I would say that is half a billion people with pre in China

    17:00 –  There is no need for dietary glucose. We can make glucose through gluconeogenesis… We see a lot of inflammatory diseases improve"

    "HFD-feeding altered the gut microbiota composition paralleled by increased expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and genes involved in gluconeogenesis in intestinal epithelial cells of the jejunum."

    Lamont, B. J., Waters, M. F., & Andrikopoulos, S. (2016).

Retrieved from http://www.nature.com/nutd/journal/v6/n2/abs/nutd20162a.html

    "HFDs promote intestinal alterations such as increased intestinal permeability [10] and an elevated inflammatory milieu [11]. Both factors are believed to contribute to the progression of insulin resistance [12]. Interestingly, gut anti-inflammatory agents have been shown to protect against HFD-induced glucose intolerance and insulin resistance despite significant weight gain"

    34:00 "Why are we concerned about saturated fat, I don’t know…"

    Most people are not, thus the globesity, cancer, and CHD epidemics.

    37:20 – "If you have a marbled steak, lather it with butter, some vegetables, wine and cheese… You’re not going to accumulate it, you’re going to burn it as fuel"

    And I heard no reaction in the audience…

    @47:45 your a doctor but you sure aren’t a mathematician 🤣 China has half a trillion people???….🧐🤔

  18. Aaron smith on December 10, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Great presentation, the only part I didn’t agree with was when he said half a trillion Chinese I think he meant half a billion ha

  19. Alex Mammen on December 10, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Great talk

  20. The Fruit Addict Ⓥ on December 10, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    I am open to following a low-carb vegan diet, but i just don’t understand how the okinawans did so well when the main component of their diets was sweet potato, which is extremely high-carb and low-fat.

  21. Toni on December 10, 2019 at 9:18 pm

    Absolutely brilliant talk. Thank you for getting continuing to fight the junk food market. The sugar and pastries etc.

  22. Benjamin Crouzier on December 10, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    47:48 Half a trillion? Wow there are more Chinese people than I thought

    Excellent information 🙂

  26. Margaret Trebing on December 10, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    So he said palmitoleic acid is bad, and then he said that avocados and macadamia nuts are high in pamitoleic acid – so should we stop eating them? I’m confused, I eat a LOT of avocados (and a good amount of macadamias, too). I though they were great for the LCHF diet.

  27. Allkinds ofgainz on December 10, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    There isn’t half a trillion people living on this planet never mind that many chinese with pre diabetes!!!! He must’ve been tired……Bless! @ 47.50 mins

  28. Richard Kotra on December 10, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    The 21st century plague – sugar, processed foods and sedentary lifestyle.
    Lack of nutritional education in schools from an early age is the main cause of obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
    It costs taxpayers around the world billions of dollars in medical bills.
    The main parties contributing and benefiting from human suffering are: unscrupulous food manufactures, multinational pharmaceutical companies, misinformed and dishonest medical practitioners. The scientific evidence of benefits from intermittent fasting and carbohydrate restriction exists for at least 50 years, but is ignored by government regulatory institutions. Fortunately this is begin to change thanks to people like Professor Jeff Volek, Dr Mercola and many other honest whistleblowers.

  29. Mark on December 10, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    Yep! Macadamia Nuts are tops!! 🙂

  30. nyreekrikorian on December 10, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    at the end, did he say "half a trillion people"??

  31. Jim Jones on December 10, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    At around 33.00 re: Saturated Fat. I have to give credit to Dr Malcolm Kendrick 2007 BMA meeting in Leeds. (Still on YouTube) Who showed there was no correlation between saturated fat intake and heart disease. His talk was mainly about ‘The Cholesterol Con’ Stopped looking at low fat products as a healthy choice as a result. With knowledge from here and Dr. Stephen Phinney will be attempting to go low carb now.

  32. El Eggs on December 10, 2019 at 9:28 pm

    How to test if one thrives better on carbs or better on fats?

  33. ChertineP on December 10, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    My favorite slide is at 33:20, showing huge numbers of people in the studies proving that dietary saturated fats do not cause heart disease.

  34. Be happy Be free!!! on December 10, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    So how much carbs should we be eating? For someone who avoids junk foods, exercises, is healthy with a low BMI, does this still apply? Should healthy people cut out carbs?

  35. Appleblade on December 10, 2019 at 9:30 pm

    Holy shit! This presentation is a goldmine … kicked it in the dick!

  36. Markela Gonzalez on December 10, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Profesor Jeff wht is your view on the role of fruits in a ketogenic diet

  37. Markela Gonzalez on December 10, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Also Do think a kid with ADHD should do a ketogenic diet

  38. Joe Brinson on December 10, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    Dr. Atkins and others from the 1970s and 1980s are finally being vindicated.

  39. TheOnecosmos on December 10, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Metabolic Syndrome Is Insulin Resistance Is Carbohydrate Intolerance

  40. Ethics Tho on December 10, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    If you eat even one banana your body will be like yay the dummy finally found food…in a grocery store

  41. bgregg55 on December 10, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    So I’m wondering if eating keto also benefits kids being "diagnosed" with adhd. Though I suspect the answer is yes.

  42. Linda McNeil on December 10, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    GREAT presentation!

  43. Chrisisms on December 10, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    12:30 – "Ketones allowed us to develop big brains"
    A Google scholar search yields: Your search – "Ketones allowed us to develop big brains" – did not match any articles
    "Ketones caused big brains"
    Your search – "Ketones caused big brains" – did not match any articles.
    "Ketones caused brains"
    Your search – "Ketones caused brains" – did not match any articles…
    And without the quotation marks you find no scientific literature remotely related to the above claim…

  44. TheRosa63 on December 10, 2019 at 9:37 pm

    do they have people who follow low carb diets and follow them for say 10 years? or 15 years to see how they bodies react and are doing in regards to cancer rates, and falling off the wagon of low carb diets and weight regain and other things?

  45. Carroll Hoagland on December 10, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    Correct ketogenic approach is best and is sustainable, as you are less hungry with healthy fats … Just after WWII, the first warning were being reported in the news about the Refined-Carbohydrate Disease. Interestingly: In the 1930’s, food scientists realized that refined grains were not providing enough nutrients. Consumers, particularly children, were developing symptoms of malnutrition. (Irony 1) Thus, grain enrichment and fortification became standard. References to “The Saccharine Disease” started in 1956.The FDA, AMA have failed …Simple … The AMA (the most powerful lobby in Washington) and NIH have failed the patient … Physicians have abandoned the nutritional approach to patient diagnostics and medicine, simply because they are not trained in nutrition. A key part of the Hippocratic Oath … “I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure… “, has been forgotten …
