Dr. Gil Carvalho made a video where he fact-checked one of my videos. I’m going to go through this video and fact-check the fact-checker.

It turns out that Dr. Gil Carvalho seems to be a council member of a plant-based group whose president is very much against the keto diet.

Watch as I dig deeper, uncovering conflicts of interest and searching for the truth.

Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio:
Dr. Berg, age 58, is a chiropractor who specializes in Healthy Ketosis and intermittent fasting. He is the author of the best-selling book The Healthy Keto Plan, and is the Director of Dr. Berg Nutritionals®. He no longer practices, but focuses on health education through social media.

Follow Me On Social Media:




Dr. Eric Berg received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1988. His use of “doctor” or “Dr.” in relation to himself solely refers to that degree. Dr. Berg is a licensed chiropractor in Virginia, California, and Louisiana, but he no longer practices chiropractic in any state and does not see patients so he can focus on educating people as a full-time activity, yet he maintains an active license. This video is for general informational purposes only. It should not be used to self-diagnose and it is not a substitute for a medical exam, cure, treatment, diagnosis, prescription, or recommendation. It does not create a doctor-patient relationship between Dr. Berg and you. You should not make any change in your health regimen or diet before first consulting a physician and obtaining a medical exam, diagnosis, and recommendation. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

      I wouldn’t consider them as beliefs as believing not believing doesn’t get you closer to the truth, beliefs give the world comfort and convenience, but when one belief tramples over another, then there will be conflict, but when everyone has to face the truth, one must yield, there is nothing greater than the truth

    • @nafaidni on December 19, 2023 at 6:01 am

      Cholesterol is a dirty indicater of the real risk factor: Apo-B. If you actually watched Dr. Carvalho’s videos instead of “Dr.” Berg’s you might have learned that, as it also explains the narrative that small LDL is more atherogenic than large LDL (spoiler: it is in part because the same amount of cholesterol in small LDL has more lipoprotein particles than the same amount of cholesterol in large LDL, i.e. small LDL contributes more Apo-B).

      Besides, Jean Calment smoked until the age of 100 at least and lived to the age of 122. Single exceptions don’t disprove the rule. People with genetically very low LDL cholesterol live 7 years longer than the general population on average despite not being able to absorb nutrients as well. People with very high cholesterol genetically live more than 7 years shorter than the general population.

      All lines of evidence point towards higher LDL cholesterol particle counts causing ASCVD. Genetic. Pharmaceutical. Lifestyle.

    A huge thank you to Dr. berg! 🎉. I send everyone I know to his videos. At the age of 57, I was able to to lose 92 lbs and overcome MANY health issues including Hashimoto’s, Fibromyalgia, clogged gall bladder, and too many more to mention. Because of so many allergies to vegetables, I switched to high fat, medium protein carnivore and feel even better…actually amazing ! What I can do boggles my mind after so many years of chronic fatigue. Dr. Berg, thank you so much!

    • @nafaidni on December 19, 2023 at 6:06 am

      Please don’t “learn” more from “Dr.” Berg. All these results show is that switching to an unprocessed foods diet that cuts out major food groups will support weight loss.

      Walter Kempner fed people a diet of white rice and fruit juice to try and save them from fatal hypertension. His subjects lost more than 141 lbs of weight each on average. Does that mean eating rice and fruit juice alone is a generally healthy diet?
