      Dr Ekberg if you don’t mind, what do you think of tapioca bread? It’s really nice for gluten free, 14 of the 15 grams of carbs are fibre, nice & light, but I wonder if it raises insulin? Mind you I’m switching to low carb this week, no grains, no sugar, but it would be nice to know your opinion.

    • Cornflower Toile on July 10, 2022 at 8:33 pm

      @Larry Tischler Possibly try digestive enzymes that work on fats, like bile salts, lipase, pancreatic enzymes. There’s one called Bile Force by Prairie Naturals.

    • darren brisson on July 16, 2022 at 2:41 pm

      It’s impossible not go eat sugar even if a product says it has no sugar there’s some way it produces it in the grocery store there’s a organic isle where they have these jacked up priced products then all the rest of the isles are pure sugar there’s an isle just for junk food an isle for baking cakes and other baked goods that’s where theg keel the sugar and other ingredients

    So weird, stopping bread is my New Years resolution. Thanks for this. Huge motivation. You’ve got me IF and I’m slowly moving over to keto. 👍

      @Dr. Sten Ekberg is what ur saying also applicable to other carbs? Potatoes Rice etc …?!

    • Ned on May 4, 2022 at 7:37 pm

      @Hubie Maddox it doesnt taste great because its not the species specific diet including your veg, all plants dont want to be eaten, go carnivore

    • Ned on May 4, 2022 at 7:41 pm

      @maries vilmy go carnivore, you wont look back, just make sure you have plenty of fat, and no caffeine

    • Blackberry 16 on May 18, 2022 at 2:39 am

  3. RoadPizza04 on January 2, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I’m over weight, have ibs, and blood sugar used to tank on and off all the time. Husband and I started portion control and keto living ( not super strict keto, lowering carbs/starch and no sugar). It’s amazing how much better I feel. Little to no stomach issues, down 30lbs, and haven’t had a single sugar issue. I always avoided salad bc I thought I couldn’t tolerate it, cut out the junk foods, now I have zero issues with salads and leafy greens

    • Julie Howe on April 25, 2022 at 4:43 am

      @Amin Abdullah please do not ever give bread to birds. It does terrible things to them too!!

    • Tumbleweed UK on May 14, 2022 at 4:23 pm

      @Jester 60 I can do keto for breakfast but I struggle for my other meal, wanting carbs! What is a relaxed keto diet, it sounds interesting! I would love more information if you have a moment. Namaste 🙏

    • Jester 60 on May 15, 2022 at 8:24 pm

      @Tumbleweed UK We did a regular keto diet but, if I decided I wanted the bun with the burger (occasionally) I’d get it. If I wanted chocolate, I would only take a small piece, not the whole bar. What I call relaxed keto is Keto with MINOR cheats.

      You stopped eating completely?

  4. CaliEye on January 25, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    just want to say that I have followed your advice and you honestly may have saved my life…
    I was 287 pounds with a 90 resting heartbeat and a average of 165 / 90 blood pressure WITH medications.
    I was just recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I saw one of your videos and starting to put your methods into practice. It has been 3 and a 1/2 months and I am down in weight from 287 pounds to 228 pounds! My resting heart rate has gone down to 77 beats a minute! My blood pressure has gone down to 120 / 70 and my blood sugar never goes past 100 even when i eat! (Says around 80 while fasting).
    I cannot express my gratitude enough Sir, you have My respect and I truly believe in your truth because I live it!
    (My apologies but I am going to post this same comment on your other videos in the hope you will see it or that it may inspire someone else).

    • Phil on May 21, 2022 at 6:07 pm

      @creatingpeacenlove the simplest way to lose fat and get healthy is the carnivore diet. If it has a face it is food, if it is from the soil, it should be avoided. I do bend a bit on this and allow myself to have coffee, I personally eat one or two meals per day, about 1-2 lbs (.5-1kg) of meat, eggs, cheese, butter. I season my food with salt, a bit of pepper occasionally, and have lost 104# since mid November of 2020. Dr Ekberg is a great resource for a more keto type approach and may be a great way to make changes to your diet that are more “sustainable” for people with less need for restrictions in their diets. Personally, I love eating steak and eggs, hamburger patties, shrimp, tuna, and lamb breast, I feel great, look younger, and truly feel healthier than I have in years. Have a look at Dr Ken Berry’s videos for more information on the carnivore way of eating, he has many good videos, as does his wife Neisha on her channel Neisha loves it.

    • peace on August 1, 2022 at 6:51 pm

      Super! I’m prediabetic. But lately my blood sugar stays above 100. Cutting out carbs, sugar.

    • Stewart Abel on August 7, 2022 at 9:07 am

      @BE PREPARED Nonsense unfortunately for you

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 6:51 pm

      Keep up the good work. I cut out the bread and almost all carbs as well and had same results, blood pressure fell 20 points to 120/80 . Heart rate down to 70 and lost 12 pounds in 2 months.

    I found his channel after my diet was corrected. Great job, keep going. I went low carb in 2005, and to my surprise, the fat melted away so easy. In 2012, I was introduced to IF. And the plateau was conquered. I didn’t know why, I just knew it worked. And I knew all the nutrition information I was told like the food pyramid wasn’t just wrong, it was backwards. Now from this guy and Dr Berg, I know why.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on April 9, 2022 at 1:34 pm

      Thank you nickma71. I really appreciate your feedback and so glad that you liked it. The purpose of my channel is to explain things better than other channels and help people understand the principles. I spend so much time on it because when we get “the why” and the mechanism we become empowered for life . Comments like yours makes it all worthwhile. 😄

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 7:10 pm

      Can you yell me what IF is? I’ve recently hit a plateau in my keto. Don’t think I’m eating enough fat and protein.

    • nickma71 on September 8, 2022 at 9:51 pm

      @Glen Garbera Intermittent fasting. Meaning I eat every day, but prolong my fast and don’t break my fast (breakfast) in the morning. Insulin blocks fat burning and is the fat storage hormone. It’s not debatable. It’s what insulin does.

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 11:06 pm

      @nickma71 thanks

  6. HorseyGran on February 25, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    We haven’t eaten bread, pasta and sugar for 4 years now – both aged 73, all medical vitals doing well, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, vitamins/minerals etc. We exercise every day. Thanks Dr Ekberg.

    • Chantel Lucky on November 24, 2022 at 5:12 am

      So what do you eat instead? All fruits have sugar! Even some vegetables have sugar like carrots and beets etc, I don’t know what to eat these days ?!😌

      @A DP why do people hate carbs so much its so annoying, ik im still young but its not like bread does more bad than good. Energizes you, can taste good, these doctors are trying to make glucose seem like a drug.

    • Hyper Moose on December 10, 2022 at 4:41 am

      Still alive?

  7. Burt the Man on March 9, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    I’ve been off bread now for six weeks for weight loss reasons. What I didn’t expect was the lowering of my blood pressure, which went down from 150/90 to about 120/80. It was too high for years and I just gave up trying to lower it. What a nice side effect!

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 7:04 pm

      Good work bro. I’ve done it for just over 2 months and having same results. Doc want me to go on blood pressure meds. Cut out carbs and BP is now 120/80.

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 7:05 pm

      @Janice Paul thanks for opening my eyes to these recipes, tried it today. Awesome 👌

    • Burt the Man on September 8, 2022 at 9:15 pm

      @Glen Garbera thank you. I wish I would’ve known this earlier

    • Glen Garbera on September 8, 2022 at 11:06 pm

      @Burt the Man me as well

    • Abdel Badreldine on November 10, 2022 at 9:00 am

      I am off bread now for one week bcse of weight reasons hopelly will down also my blood pressure to 120/8. But i am already feeling much better thanks God

  8. Abpob on March 10, 2022 at 8:34 am

    Sadly, I found out I had Celiac disease about 10 yrs ago. The transition from a wheat gluten diet to a non gluten diet was extraordinarily difficult. Celiac also causes various sensitivities to other types of gluten and just some other foods in general. If you eat in restaurants there is no way to avoid accidental gluten no matter how hard you try. It takes me about a week to recover from eating hidden gluten and it is not pleasant.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on April 9, 2022 at 1:37 pm

      Thank You Jeff Scott. What makes it difficult is that we have a culture based on grain. It shows up at every turn. It simplifies things if food is just “meat and veggies” like humans have always eaten. 😄

    • Geoff Stevenson on May 11, 2022 at 9:16 pm

      Similar story. Coeliac is unique, as diseases go, in that once you stop eating the poison that triggers its symptoms (gluten), recovery from the damage is rapid, with even the gut fully self-repairing in less than 2 years. I wish I’d discovered I was coeliac decades ago. The damage is systemic and the symptoms so varied it can be difficult to make the necessary connections. And coeliac often occurs with other immune system related diseases, which further muddies the waters

    • Bett Tobit on May 29, 2022 at 12:42 pm

      How do test for celiac disease

  9. Benderman on April 13, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Giving up bread was probably the single best decision of my life ever, it was also one of the hardest tho, I spent almost 30 years eating at least 2 slices of bread every single day; the first 2 weeks after giving it up, I felt the worst withdrawal I’ve ever felt in my life, I was very anxious, but those two weeks were the most substantial to my weight loss & health path (I lost like 9kg in those two weeks, just by giving up bread), all my life I was convinced that bread was a staple and I would feel weakness if I gave it up because “I would not have carbs”, now that I see this video I’m 100% that it’s the best decision I’ve ever made and after 2 years without bread I feel great and don’t miss it at all…

    • alan stone on May 12, 2022 at 3:15 pm


    • Radical Cartoons on May 12, 2022 at 6:30 pm

      It’s the hardest thing to give up. I’ve happily given up pasta, rice and potatoes for 9 months but still struggling with bread.

    • Janice Paul on May 26, 2022 at 9:05 pm

      @Radical Cartoons please take my exciting advice try making chaffles they’re on YouTube for keto you can add whatever you want that’s not carbs basis is eggs and cheddar cheese or any cheese that works for you The recipe say half a cup of cheese but we modify what we like it’s my replacement for bread and I never crave bread because this is great and light so you don’t get tired after we eat it

    • Chrissy Ellem on June 27, 2022 at 7:48 pm

      @Radical Cartoons Yes all those foods are super easy for me to give up but bread is hard. My dad gave me a salad from Panera but of course it came with bread and the smell of it I was just struggling. I gave it to my son for his dinner side.

  10. Stephen John on April 22, 2022 at 6:42 am

    I stopped eating bread a few months ago and have gradually honed my diet to almost perfection-ish, I will never eat bread again, the difference is incredible at 50! I have always been interested in diet but have learned so much from this dude. Sadly it’s not easy to eat well if you are stuck in a rat race; and governments should not allow poisons in our foods! Allowing cheap chemical enhanced food allows those at the top to get even wealthier, it is madness. And what we teach kids in school books needs updating!!!

    • Janice Paul on May 26, 2022 at 9:10 pm

      Did you hear about the chaffles that are on YouTube I am so excited about my new found Bread replacement if you like eggs and cheese on a mini waffle maker which is called a chaffle maker
      It reminds me of angel food cake I just wanted to share it with others maybe they never knew about it

  11. American Cupcake on May 7, 2022 at 12:14 am

    I love this doctor. His videos are soooo detailed, unbiased and informative

  12. SumsungTV 2020 on May 9, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Simply fabulous way of explaining. I tried years ago, first few days are hard, but it does get easier and the results were quick. 6 weeks off bread, 9 kg down. No other restrictions. I even had a bit of chocolate now and then. But now I finally understand the whole mystery behind it. Amazing lecture!!!

    • Pat Edwards on October 1, 2022 at 2:49 am

      Thanks for the encouragement 👍

  13. Doris P on May 14, 2022 at 2:03 am

    I’m on my way with revamping my diet due to overweight and intermittent digestive issues. I definitely have had leaky gut, probably most of my life without being able to recognize it. Dr. Ekberg’s lectures keep me tuned in to myself and motivate me to keep going. I am currently giving up grains as a staple (just about totally despite cultural immersion) and reducing all sugars. I am also actually enjoying intermittent fasting. One’s body really gets used to it and it feels quite empowering. I think I just moved into more effective satiety, now that Dr. Sten named it for me. I am excited to see what happens next as I have about 35 – 40 pounds to lose, age 66.

  14. S AC on June 7, 2022 at 7:43 am

    Hi Dr, thanks for the great video. As a vegetarian who has also given up alcohol and tobacco, I have yet to fully give up bread as it has been the hardest thing to ever give up. I’ve started to eat gluten free (sometimes pizza and breakfast bars almost daily) bread items more often and I’ve noticed a huge difference. My question is, will I reap the same benefits as giving up all breads or am I missing some benefits by still consuming breads, albeit gluten free? Thanks for your time.

  15. TOKO! on June 16, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I can’t believe your lectures are free. They are very educational.

  16. Moira Smith on December 3, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    I have just discovered your channel so going to be interesting following it

  17. TheHumanBodyTalk on December 7, 2022 at 11:37 am

    What a great video. I gonna break this down in a video! 🍭🍭🍭

  18. David Hayes on December 9, 2022 at 1:54 pm

    There is more testimonials and positive comments on this way of life than anything else. I’m carb free and sugar free going on a year and a half doing this. I have amazing results. My doctor is impressed.

  19. Susan Hauck on December 9, 2022 at 2:53 pm

    I can live without bread, but pasta?!!!😢

  20. Darren Connell on December 11, 2022 at 1:33 am

    I’m going to cut out bread after the Christmas holidays, I feel awful, and that’s me eating well and training

    I’m actually excited about starting it!
