      Hi Dr Ekberg, I’ve watched your videos on and off for a while now, even did an attempt at doing Keto after binge watching your videos for a while (lasted 2 or 3 months, but couldn’t keep it up as it was too difficult socially). One thing that I find so incredibly difficult when trying to incorporate the excellent knowledge that you disperse through your videos, is figuring out what to actually eat. I’m a former lifelong vegetarian (now pescatarian as my body does accept fish), which of course is already limiting. Could you do a video about healthy options that I actually CAN eat and drink that is not too unhealthy? I’ve bought a Sodastream which I use to make sparkling water (which definitely helps me to drink more water and cut down on alcoholic/sugary/caffeinated drinks), but I’m having a hard time figuring out what to eat and drink instead of all the bad options in the supermarket (or restaurants for that matter). There’s so many things that are unhealthy going by your videos that I walk through the supermarket/grocery store and practically don’t see any options that I can consume! Life is too boring when all I can drink is water, and I’m completely lost at this point regarding what I can actually eat. No bread, no pizza, no pasta, no pastries, no sodas, no alcohol, no fruit beverages and not too much fruit… what’s left beyond sushi? Thanks for your great content!

      ​​@@crazymonkeyVII For a vegetarian (even more so when you are a vegan) it is not too easy.
      I converted to this:
      I skip breakfast (intermittent fasting),
      My lunch or brunch: Yoghurt , Kefirwith strawberries, blackberries, or other berries. Sunflower or hemp seeds, a few spoons of wheat germ, and I mix it with healthy fat like olive oil, cod liver with its own oil or tasteless fish oil high in EPA and DHA.

      I admit I eat way more red meat than before and in some days it is my only meal.
      But you can get grilled vegetables or other vegetables.
      Eat plenty of organic eggs. Boiled or fried sunny side up, or make an English breakfast.
      But personally I absolutely would avoid being a vegan or vegetarian, healthwise, both for your own health and that of the earth…

      Just be aware and moderation. I worked for an organic farm CSA for many years. I got paid in fruits and veggies and would dehydrate and freeze to be able to maximize my “pay” through out the year. I was not eating fast food. I was not drinking sugar soda. I was not eating candy bars and cookies and junk food. Then my A1C spiked and I came to realize I was insulin resistant, NAFLD all when I thought I was being healthy.

      @@dionisiatsafos3655 you can eat whatever you like. If you choose to prioritize metabolic health I’d recommend getting your fasting INSULIN tested and look at how it trends. Ideally you’d want your levels to be between (2-6). If over 25 you are diabetic. In normal American medicine no one tests this and make sure they are aware you mean insulin and are not meaning glucose.
      Fructose doesn’t show on A1C or CGM. You could be doing long term damage while thinking you’re healthy.

  6. @hennypenny338 on November 17, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    I’m one of those people who can’t eat grains or sugar. If I do, all I want to do is eat. I agree about the tomato soup. I thought my favorite tomato soup was so healthy…until I quit eating sugar. When I had some of my soup, it was so sweet I couldn’t eat it. Only then did I look at the ingredients and found sugar in the middle of the list. And now when I look at ingredients I find sugar in almost everything.

    I have pretty much quit processed foods. I bought some bite sized frittatas which didn’t have grains or sugar but I still found myself craving them after eating one or two. I don’t know what the food corporations put in the food to cause this but I know they do it on purpose. The more we eat the more we have to buy from them.

    • @KAT-dg6el on November 17, 2023 at 7:11 pm

      I only eat
      Organic grass fed, free range chicken & eggs, low carb vegetables, plant based cheese & sour cream, purified water, tea, flavored water, and organic coffee. I don’t even look at packaged foods anymore.
      No grains, no nuts, no fruit, no dairy, etc.
      I do purchase primal kitchen mayo and ketchup. Learned how bad High fructose corn syrup is from Dr. Weil years ago. Also years ago stopped consuming anything hydrolyzed. I do the intermediate fasting. I do not over stuff myself. My BMI is in the lower normal range. My weight hasn’t changed EVER but I do still have this fat around my gut. 😡
      Oh and I do walk almost every day weather permitting. For those days I can’t get out I have a rowing machine.
      Last A1c test showed 5.8
      The best control I had over my gut and blood sugars when I went on a carnivore diet. So I’m going to go back to that, and stop listening to Doctor telling me I’m gonna die if I don’t eat vegetables.

      You’ve made some very valid and important points. Food companies add sugar because people like sugary foods and they will keep buying, making more profits. Eat wholefoods and reduce significantly any processed foods. Actually, almost everything contains sugar, but naturally occurring sugars, such as in fruit and vegetables and nuts, are much less damaging, and indeed in UK people are encouraged to eat more of these foods

I know it’s unhealthy, there is no doubt about it, but seeing that it affects me less than say a 50 yo mildly obese office worker without excercise does help morale.
    Nevertheless, I should cut more on these types of food, but I already reduced the amounts I consume, so that’s a good start.

An example is that most research against saturated fat have their sample groups consuming copious amounts of carbs (see NCBI PMC8092457 ) with it and aren’t done with individuals who are ‘low carb’ or in ketosis. It’s only recently that these tests are being done with proper methods. (see NCBI 34796724, 34717669).

The idea was that weight gain consisted of each cell enlarging, versus adding more fat cells. Given my huge appetite and low fat body, that made sense for me, because our mother put just enough food on the table to take the edge off hunger, but never enough to feel full, as pointed out by a friend.
