      Hi Dr Ekberg, thank you very much for your great info! In this video you mention the importance of fiber. There are some doctors though, like dr Boz, and carnivore YouTubers who claim fiber is bad for you. Could you do a special video on pro’s and con’s of fiber?

    • Ianeck Wang on January 7, 2023 at 3:40 am

      Hi, I remembered from a previous video that you mentioned your daily caloric intake to be around 1600. Your macros in the current video set that at 2500 cal/day. Can you explain the difference? Because the macros do work… the more proteins you eat, the more fat you need to eat. I just can’t imagine someone eating 2500 cal/day on OMAD…

    • Anna Ngampio on January 7, 2023 at 7:36 am

      Hello Dr.Sten ,do you know Yerba mate tea ? What do you think about it ? I heard a lot about this tea that help with weight loss, before I take , I wanted to get info about it, since other think the it cause cancer. Please tell us , it’ll help a lot

    • Poppy on January 7, 2023 at 12:56 pm

      Can you tell us your weight, height and age ? I only ask because you don’t look slim, but maybe it is all muscle ?

    • Antonio Cruz on January 7, 2023 at 6:28 pm

      Prezado Dr. Ekberg, gosto muito de assistir seus vídeos. Tenho uma dúvida relacionada ao seu curso “Blood Work”: o senhor tem médicos parceiros aqui no Brasil, de forma que eu possa consultá-los ou eventualmente adquirir os seus serviços no local onde resido? Muito obrigado.

  1. northcountry32 on January 6, 2023 at 11:35 am

    I appreciate your approach of whatever works for the individual. You have been a godsend for me. You have helped me change my life. I am down 100 pounds from this time last year and your videos have been the best source of information for me, teaching me how our bodies work with the food we eat. Thank you so much!!!

    • Boudicca on January 6, 2023 at 1:17 pm

      @northcountry32 Congrats! You’re right about mental health component. I’m 50 & I lost 96 lbs 4 yrs ago and like you, feel more 30 now than I did when I was 30. You’re doing great! Don’t beat yourself up too much about the holiday junk eating. You know what to do about it now. Enjoy your new self

    • northcountry32 on January 6, 2023 at 1:59 pm

      @Boudicca thank you and congratulations to you as well. Be well!!!

    • Mary Ann Dull on January 6, 2023 at 2:26 pm

      Way to go northcountry 32!

    • TTs and beer on January 6, 2023 at 2:31 pm

      Rock on and enjoy your new life.

    • Mike Tranfaglia on January 6, 2023 at 8:46 pm

      @northcountry32 way to go! I”m 62 and was never really overweight, but starting to get aches and pains all over. After just a few weeks cutting out sugar, going lo-carb and intermittent fasting, all the inflammation went away and never came back. I can’t even remember the last time I took ibuprofen.

  2. Moniez Table on January 6, 2023 at 11:40 am

    So informative. I appreciate the list of things that we can eat. My doctor told me that I’m carb intolerant so they are truly evil for me. I thought avocados were considered fruits. I may be wrong.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on January 6, 2023 at 11:45 am

      Thank you @MoniezTable for letting me know. I really appreciate the feedback. Avocados and tomatoes are botanically classified as fruit, but in “common speak” people refer to them as vegetables, because they are less sweet than most fruit. Thanks for watching.😄

  3. Sal Lazuka on January 6, 2023 at 11:54 am

    I’ve been waiting for a video like this from you. So many people have told me that a super low carb lifestyle is unsustainable. I begged to differ. I’m nearly 2 years into this and there is no looking back! Thank you so much. As far as your favorite list growing past 10, no problem, as variety is the spice of life.

    • Derp on January 6, 2023 at 1:04 pm

      The people telling you that have never gone on a keto diet. Many are put off by the cost and sugar withdrawals. Those who push through have nothing but positive things to report.

    • Richard Monroe on January 6, 2023 at 4:02 pm

      I’ve lost many pounds and didn’t eliminate carbs.

    • ChrisLock on January 6, 2023 at 4:34 pm

      Of course, a lot of anorexic people also didn’t eliminate carbs and manage to lose weight through caloric deficit. Nothing remarkable about that. People have even lost weight with surgery such as liposuction. None of this is great for your health but yeah there’s a million ways to lose weight if that is your only concern

    • pamela woodall on January 7, 2023 at 2:51 am

      @Richard Monroe You’re a troll !

    • David Roberts on January 7, 2023 at 6:34 pm

      I agree with you. After three years of low carb/keto/ carnivore rotation I personally have no desire to go back to the constant sickness of the SAD way of eating. I’m 55 and thriving.

  4. MusicIsMyBestFriend on January 6, 2023 at 11:59 am

    Landing on your channel was one of the best things that happened in 2022! The other one was starting the paragliding, so you know how huge of a life changer your channel is 🙂 ❤️ I’m so happy I’ve moved from 16:8 intermittent fasting to 21:3, stopped weighting my food and tracking macros, and got back to enjoying tasty fatty food (which is looked with surprised eyes by my men colleagues – you’re not supposed to eat fat as a lady apparently 😂😂😂). Eating just dinner (which is sometimes breakfast food 🤪😋) and just having some nuts during the day, gave me more free TIME and the FREEDOM of being 0 dependent on food. I’ve observed carbs swell my body, especially my legs, but I was afraid of increasing the fats. I can’t thank you enough for sharing all the information and doing this in a language that even an engineer can follow 🙏❤️

  5. PrjctWRX on January 6, 2023 at 12:02 pm

    Another great video doc! You’ve opened my eyes to how important my health is and how I need to be feeding my body. I went from eating fast food every day to eating a low carb, high fat, high protein diet whilst going to the gym 6x a week! I feel as good as I did in my teenage years!

    • andoletube on January 6, 2023 at 1:14 pm

      Similar – except I’m 49 and I was feeling like I was 79. Now I’m feeling more like 59 – but would be happy to just feel like a healthy 49 y/o!

  6. Pete Evans on January 6, 2023 at 12:02 pm

    Dr. Ekberg, thanks for the perspectives from your experience. It was very helpful to have a run through of the times and foods that compose your meals in day to day life. One question: What tool do you use to obtain your glucose and insulin levels?

  7. Shan's Tale on January 6, 2023 at 12:12 pm

    Thank you for this video!! It is very encouraging. Hopefully, once I reverse my IR, I can occasionally eat some of the foods I miss on Keto. I’m very seriously considering the carnivore diet for a month or so to see how I do.

  8. Dana Hristea on January 6, 2023 at 12:26 pm

    Thank you, dr. Ekberg ! I love your videos, your explanations are so clear. I am from Romania and I found your channel in spring 2022. Since then I do IF 16:8 and I cut the carbs as much as I can. Happy new year 2023 !!

  9. smartman 2796 on January 6, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    Your understanding of food, the body, and how they interact is amazing. I always recommend you videos to anyone who is struggling with food and health issues

    • campyc40 on January 6, 2023 at 10:15 pm

      How do you know he’s right

  10. Lisa M on January 6, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    Thank you so much for this video. I do have a question. Absent from this list are beans and fermented foods (except yogurt). What do you think about beans? I thought there was a lot of great data to suggest they promote longevity? Are fermented foods really that important? Thanks for the great and informative content!

    • Marek Unzeitig on January 6, 2023 at 9:14 pm

      Great question, would love to hear the opinion on that too.
      From what I heard about beans, the way you prepare it is important. At first you should soak it overnight before preparation. Then there was some other thing but I don’t remember and want to do a research on that.
      And for fermented foods, all I heard was they are all godly foods full of nutrients. So I’m surprised doctor is not mentioning that.

  11. Debbie Rhodes on January 6, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    In Jan 2020 I was diagnosed with stage 1 ovarian cancer and went through surgery and 4 rounds of chemo (carbo and taxol).At that time I was already doing a 24 hr fast one day a week, as well as doing LCHF, so for chemo days I would also fast. I had some pretty significant side effects (neuropathy, brain fog) but got through it and was clear for two and a half years. June 2022 I was found to have another mass that had adhered to my colon. It’s the nature of the beast, which is ovarian cancer! Surgery again and a different kind of chemo (carbo and doxil). This time I decided to do a three day fast around chemo because I was told that this chemo could cause hand and foot syndrome and heart problems. I would fast the day before, the day of, and the day after, with just electrolytes. I have had NO side effects whatsoever! It’s like I’m not even having chemo! Sure, three days is hard, but the payoff is incredible. And that first meal after fasting tastes soooo goood! I have my sixth and final round in February and I expect the same results. Thank you Dr Ekberg for being one of those that led me to this lifestyle. I’m not sure I would be here to enjoy my life without your guidance. God bless!

    • TML on January 6, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    • Ian Stuart on January 6, 2023 at 9:06 pm

      Amazing, the benefits of prolonged fasting are underrated and wide ranging. Best wishes with your recovery!

    • Michelle My Belle on January 6, 2023 at 11:01 pm

      I heard the fame thing on Dr Burge’s Channel. A man that got dx with colon cancer fasted 30 days, don’t remember details, he wrote a book. He fasted at least the day before and of and he said the same thing, not the typical chemo reactions!

    • Brian DeRiemacker on January 7, 2023 at 1:42 am

      Well wishes

    • Pamela Wilson on January 7, 2023 at 4:00 pm

      RGCC. Look it up.

  12. Maja on January 6, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    This is great video, thank you very much for sharing with us. ❤️ I’m 53 years old and in menopause, I’m on keto and intermittement fasting few years now (sometimes I rotate it with carnivore), and this keto-carnivore combination works best for me… Although, I prefer keto more because of fibers, some seeds and vegetables (it’s better for my constipation). Please can you make some video about your weekly workout routine, too? Also, can you make video for us menopausal women, which way of eating is best for us, is it better for us to fast 16 hours daily – or less than 16, and etc? Thanks.

    • Suzan Vg on January 7, 2023 at 11:44 am

      Yes, Dr Berg I too could benefit from a video for Menopausal women..and especially fasting. My functional med dr suggested I drop down from 18+ hours of Fasting to 15 at most. She said too much fasting interferes with
      my hormones, causing imbalance.
      I have trouble raising Progesterone even taking 200 mg most nights. I say most bc randomly, I will miss a dose on purpose once or twice a month to change things. I do the same with nutrients too. It seems more natural as nothing in nature is consistent 100%. Am I correct in this… I don’t know but a short pause seems good. I don’t know.

  13. Fred on January 6, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    I have arthritis & had badly swollen joints until I changed to a low carbohydrate diet; now the swelling has gone. My family doctor was no help; just told me to take pain killers, which made the swelling worse.
    Thank you for these video’s, you have improved my life.

    • pamela woodall on January 7, 2023 at 3:08 am

      Fire that doctor !

  14. Frances B on January 6, 2023 at 3:22 pm

    Suggestion: Trader Joe’s carries “Folios Parmesan Cheese Wraps” that are an amazing substitute for tortillas; each 7-inch wrap has 1g carbs and are gluten free. Also soysauce has gluten in it; a GF substitute is Tamari — tastes the same to me (I’m celiac) and supermarkets carry it. I’ve even seen it at Trader Joe’s,

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on January 6, 2023 at 3:34 pm

      Thank you @francesb6758. There are many gluten free versions and also Bragg’s Aminos. Tamari tends to have more sugar. 😄

  15. Claudia Stevens on January 6, 2023 at 4:01 pm

    I am going to lose 15 lbs this year. I started on the 1st and lost that excess 3 lbs of water already. I have walked 40 minutes each day and had 2 meals in a 10 hr span. Now this video has given me my much needed next step info. I’m in my mid 70s but I feel it’s never to late to start.

  16. MT S on January 6, 2023 at 5:04 pm

    This was great to watch. I definitely know I’m on the right track food wise. I also eat the majority of the things listed here, with the exception of yogurt. I ate that so much when I worked in-office that now that I work from home, I’m burnt out on it so I’ve abandoned that one a bit. The homemade pizza – I was THRILLED to see you mention making it with tortilla. That’s exactly how I’ve always done mine because its light and gives me that same thin crust type effect without worrying about all the grease and calories loaded onto one if I were to order it. I use 95% veggies and will throw pepperoni on there periodically. Still better than ordering it carry out.

  17. Book Worm on January 6, 2023 at 8:55 pm

    Ya, I end up doing a lot of homemade soups and stews, stir fries are good. Boy you really hit the nail on the head when you were talking about how certain foods can trigger cravings. I figured that out real quick. For example I reserve Sundays for a potential cheat day but I very rarely take myself up on it because I just don’t want to deal with consequences such as those and the many others you are aware of.

  18. Rose Pellett on January 7, 2023 at 1:37 am

    Hello! I am a 60+ year-old postmenopausal woman. I started intermittent fasting in July 2022 with regular exercise (nothing strenuous.). I lost 15 pounds in five months!! Would have been more if I gave up the occasional cake and ice cream, but what fun would that be. Thank you, Dr. Ekberg!

  19. Dennis Koh on January 7, 2023 at 9:01 am

    Dr Ekberg, I’ve been watching many of your videos in the past 2 years… we started our low carb diet a few years ago but it took a while to refine and adapt over time. Now my wife and I are eating pretty much like most of those meals you described in this video! Only difference is probably ours is skewed a little more with proteins especially for me as I’m invoolved with more strength training in calisthenics. Really glad to watch this video as it gave me a good guide as to whether we are or rather should I say close in eating right. I just havent worked up my mind to go that heavy into fats on a daily basis. But certainly shedding the “conventional” wisdom ingrained in the last few decades by dropping carbohydrates — especially processed and starchy ones has been the best thing to happen health wise.
