    I have not had a drop of sugar in 60 days, not even artificial sweeteners. Besides the miraculous 35lbs weight loss, I have noticed vast improvements in my physical and mental health. Of most note is the improvements in my gut health and the changes in my taste palate! Thanks for the information Dr Ekberg🤗

    • Spellbindah on December 29, 2021 at 8:58 am

      @Saika Mahmud I know you didn’t ask me, but I read your comment, in 3 months I lost 50 lb, the first 30 days I lost 20, hemoglobin A1c down 2 points:-)

    • Spellbindah on December 29, 2021 at 9:01 am

      @Stalker Hunter I make my own smoothies, but when I went to purchase one he didn’t have artificial sweetener and he asked could he put a drop of honey. That sweet aftertaste stayed in the back of my throat all day. It’s really that bad when you try to reintroduce sugar into your body. It is a nightmare on my tastebuds 🙁

    • Helen Gren on August 21, 2022 at 11:18 am

      @MyKetoCarnivoreLife What is Your inflammation caused by? I know grains can cause inflammation in joints. Check out “Eat right for your bloodtype”. Maybe You can find out what is cause for it. Not all people can eat bacon… Blessings 🙏🌟🕊️

    • Helen Gren on August 21, 2022 at 11:20 am

      @MyKetoCarnivoreLife Dr has a vid about not eating yoghurt…Title of that vid is “Beware”..

    • Helen Gren on August 21, 2022 at 11:23 am

      @Spellbindah Some arificiall sweeteners can cause cancer.. Use natural, as stevia. You can grow it in Your window! ☝️ Blessings 🙏🌟🕊️

  2. CBC Sucks! on October 8, 2021 at 11:40 am

    Been doing this for a year. Lost 50lb and put on a great deal of muscle. The only exercise I do is moderate paced walking. Every single organ has improved by measures of magnitude like a fountain of youth. I am 50 years old and have a six pack again. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.

    • PS A on December 6, 2021 at 10:18 am

      @Angelo Mike Yes there’s not a single benefit of reducing the carb intake to the extreme, no health benefits at all. Got to fuel the body!! 💪

    • CBC Sucks! on December 6, 2021 at 2:33 pm

      @Angelo Mike testosterone @925 last time I tested. Pretty good for 50yo natural.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on December 19, 2021 at 2:34 pm

      Thank you CBC Sucks! for sharing your great results and helping inspire others. That is so awesome. I am thrilled that you have seen such great results. Keep it up! 😄

    • CBC Sucks! on December 19, 2021 at 3:16 pm

      @Dr. Sten Ekberg it has been a beautiful thing. I saw my family physician last week and she was flabbergasted. We trained at Judo together 15 years ago so she can definitely see where I have rolled the clock back. Thank you so much for what you’ve done and I wish you continued success in helping others!

    • forcommenting on September 4, 2022 at 1:52 am

      That’s fantastic! All I do is a moderate Pace walk as well. I’m excited that you put on muscle, though, how did you do it?

  3. Saint Boo Boo on October 21, 2021 at 1:47 am

    At 63 I felt now is the time to make changes. Your channel has done that. Went from 348lbs to 288 so far. No sugar for 4 months and feel great. Thank you.

    • Diane Harley on June 10, 2022 at 6:36 pm

      Well done 👍👍👍

    • Gauravi Pal on June 13, 2022 at 7:16 pm

      @Shalini Diabetes medicine is not addictive. If you change your lifestyle – more exercise, avoid simple carbs, intermittent fasting etc. your A1C will reduce and you will not need medication. Measure your blood sugar multiple times a day to figure which foods spike your sugars and adapt accordingly.
      Good luck.

    • Ren Bur on September 20, 2022 at 1:33 pm

      @Saint Boo Boo Congratulations! Do you use an alternative? I use Monkfruit.

    • Roger Fossette on October 19, 2022 at 4:22 am

      very nice, my problem of being overweight is not being able to be very active… I am trying to find something to lose weight not what muscle…. I am 70 with bad, bad knees

  4. Jose H Velez on December 25, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Thank you Dr. Ekberg! You have been my inspiration during this journey. Since January 27, 2021; I stopped eating carbohydrates & sugars. Started at 227.8 lbs, today my weight is 137.00 pounds. My A1c went from 5.7 to 4.3 – 4.4! Never felt better! I Been fortunate enough to experience, among others, brain clarity + I have learned a lot. In turn, with learning comes intelligent & informed decisions which are totally based on truth & facts; not based on “urban legends” passed from one doctor to the next. We should be aware that most Drs. treat symptoms and not the cause AKA the illness. If you get cured, the they have one less patient, less cash. I have come to the conclusion that they may even due it on purpose. Is important that you take it upon yourself to get educated, you will never know that the so call drs. may be killing you! Trust me, I have been there; dodge the bullet with knowledge! The journey for wellness starts with one step; admitting that you are doing things wrong but its not too late; you need to go on the rightful path, and take charge of your health! Once again, thank you Dr. Ekberg!

    • frje77 on April 13, 2022 at 1:03 pm

      Congratulations, what kind of diet you gotta?

    • Jose H Velez on April 14, 2022 at 11:28 am

      @frje77 No diets. Diets tend to be broken, then you get the YO YO effect. Instead, I do what I call a “change of life style”. Eat healthy be healthy & stick with it!! No deviations stay steady on course! I only do two meals a day. Breakfast & Dinner.

      Make sure that you: Zero Sugars (to include no fruits), Zero Carbohydrates, Zero Counting Calories & in my case zero exercise (since I am bedridden).

      Also, eat Bacon, eggs, pork chops, chicken, ribs, hamburgers (no buns); do not trim the fat eat it. That fat is ok, the fat that you not want is the fat that comes from sugars, carbs, etc.

      Foods to be prepared at home, when possible; try to get organic meats, when possible. Also, drink at least Four 16.9 litters bottles of water; only drink water. Monitor weight daily and log it in. My weight is currently at 129 lbs. I still weight in daily (motivation).

      This is one day at a time. When weight stops dropping; do 24-48 hours fast, it helps to jump the weight plateaus.

      Watch the Dr.’s videos as motivation.

      This is it, hope it helps. Remember, never give up; not once. Remember its a “change of lifestyle”! Do not cheat!! When you start cheating, the weight will start coming back!

    • Gary Thompson on April 23, 2022 at 6:08 pm

      What a great post. You are an inspiration.

    • Nibs J on June 3, 2022 at 9:24 am

      Carbohydrates break down into sugars.

  5. Lethcode on December 31, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    I fasted for 24 hours at the start of this week. Then ate only protein that night and then ate dinner the next night again mostly protein. It was like a 2 day detox and I totally relate to all the benefits. By the 3rd night my energy had spiked and now I’m able to do stuff with my kids, not get tired, and it feels like I spent my last 6 months of work in a brain fog. Now if only I could get my wife to cut it out, but she still thinks fats are unhealthy from all that Low Fat marketing. 🙁 🙁 🙁

    • INeed 2Study on January 6, 2022 at 1:27 pm

      Be careful that she doesn’t keep going on with a low fat diet, not eating enough fats can contribute to amenorrhea.

    • Vihtori Puurola on January 9, 2022 at 6:48 pm

      That whole low-fat and zero-fat marketing has only increased carb consumption and cravings in people.

    • Jonathan on August 17, 2022 at 2:48 am

      get a new wife, eBay has some good 2 for 1 offers ……!

    • ShortnSweet on November 1, 2022 at 8:09 pm

      Focus on yourself – projecting onto your wife is a distraction that your ego is doing.

  6. RED PILLED on January 2, 2022 at 7:51 am

    I have given up some addictions but sugar is one I keep coming back to again and again. It really has and continues to be a big challenge even though I know how bad it is for me. I really wish to be free of it once and for all. Dr Ekberg I appreciate you, such amazing content all the time xx

    • Cahangir on June 13, 2022 at 8:07 am

      I used to consume lots of candy and drink carbonated drinks a lot as well. But with time i started drinking more water and managed avoiding fast food for good. Now i rarely eat candy and consume soft drinks only in moderate quantity ( only because it is summer). There are always steps that you can take to elevate yourself.

    • Gighileanu Andrei on August 17, 2022 at 11:22 pm

      Eat more fat you’ll feel satiated.

    • Sayyadina on August 20, 2022 at 11:02 am

      Cocaine and sugar are molecularly similar! Baby girl…it’s substance abuse 😕

    • Robin Harris on September 16, 2022 at 8:36 pm

      Dr. Berg on You Tube says take a pinch of salt when you crave sweets. It helps get rid of the craving.

    • Pat Edwards on October 1, 2022 at 2:20 am

      I’m there with you 👍

  7. David on January 2, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    Lost 30 pounds, now I’m on my proper weight and this is all it took. I find it insane that everything that you’ve said and all the reactions you mentioned eventually happened. The difference between how you feel is fantastic.

    • Adel Mikhael on April 8, 2022 at 3:54 am

      Did you stop eating fruits as well?

    • georg walt on April 8, 2022 at 9:13 am

      @Adel Mikhael i did, except apples

    • Colin Woodford on July 29, 2022 at 2:52 pm

      Dr Ekberg, How I wish I had seen your health advices months back. Iam now recuperating from a heart valves operation and trying to get be more more aware on getting healthier. Thanks so much for doing all these videos 👍🏻👍🏻🙏🏻

    • Andrew Evenstar on September 30, 2022 at 6:21 am

      @Sugar Xyler the Cherokee what about exercise?

  8. Famster on January 3, 2022 at 11:33 pm

      @Tom Bouchard great question👍

    • dasdasdas on April 19, 2022 at 9:07 am

      @Famster Bruh raw sugar aka sucrose is found in fruit and most carbohydrates. So u wont eat “sugar” but u will eat food that has the same stuff in it.

    • Beezeta Ojha on June 2, 2022 at 2:06 pm

      Hi there. What did your diet include? please share

  9. Zsuzsa Paszterko on January 5, 2022 at 3:17 am

    Thank you Dr, this is amazingly accurate for me right now. My friend and I started the new year 2022 with the new diet. We cut completely sugar and bread. I know it’s way too early to be happy, but we are so excited about the result. If what you said is true, we, after a long long years of struggle, finally can reach our optimal body weight and be super hot again in our 50’s. Much obliged for the video.

    • Alex Diaz on February 8, 2022 at 2:43 pm

      Hello zsuzsa
      How are you doing today?

      What do you eat?

    • Daniel on March 14, 2022 at 4:30 pm

      Any progress?

  10. Jasmine Johnson on January 5, 2022 at 6:29 am

    Thanks for this. Second video of yours. First was the “no bread for 30 days”

    Got labs back and I have high glucose and a few other “problems.” Goal is to get my body to homeostasis with lifestyle changes versus medications. Started this journey due to irregular and heavy menstrual cycles. I believe that when there’s “issues” in the body, it’s simply a stop sign/sos that’s saying “hey, look over here. I’m not healthy. Please help.”

    I believe that most things can be cured through lifestyle changes versus medications/pharmaceuticals and that’s what I’ll prove.

    First step, no bread and no sugar.

    Thank you!

  11. JessBreatheNails on March 2, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Loveee this video, so informative. Thank you so much Doc. I’m no longer a prediabetic thanks to exercising and cutting carbs, but I’m currently hypoglycemic. I’m starting my keto diet today as well with cutting out sugar for Lent for 40 days. I’m excited to see how I’ll feel after my 40th day, knowing me I’m going to continue on this journey☺️. Thank you thank you thank you❤️

    • Rob Oxford on May 20, 2022 at 4:57 pm

      Hi how did you get on

    • forcommenting on September 4, 2022 at 1:20 am

      Jess, can you update on how you felt after the 40 days?

  12. Lulu Art by Mengxuan on April 10, 2022 at 12:35 pm

    Thank you Dr. Ekberg for all these well explained educational videos! I followed your advise and have been doing healthy keto and intermittent fasting along with exercises. I reversed my insulin resistance and feel so much better! Hopefully more people will find your channel and the healthy lifestyle.

  13. Goyo on June 10, 2022 at 4:47 pm

    I’ve only been off sugar 5 days and I already notice several changes. One being the way “hunger” has been modified. I do 16-20 hour fasts almost daily and I’m used to feeling serious hunger prior to my eating. Now is a little different and hard to describe but it’s like this: I still “feel” that I am hungry when my fast is over (empty stomach, hormones signalling time to eat, etc.), but they don’t “compel” me to eat. I can ignore them and not trip off it. These feelings are still real and they are there but its like I don’t really care or don’t feel like listening to them. In a way, it’s subtle but in a way it’s very powerful.

  14. Mike Dennington on June 26, 2022 at 12:12 am

    I’m 66 and been on a keto diet for 14 days and what he is saying is 100% correct. Lost 10lbs, feel much better, look happier. First week had withdrawal but after that much better and getting used to decent eating, no sugar, no carbs.

  15. Sean Shaw on July 5, 2022 at 8:06 am

    Thanks Doc, 3 weeks ago found out I had Type2 diabetes and an A1c of 12.4. You taught me to reverse the issue instead of medicate it. I never took their meds and fixed the problem with diet/exercise. Now I relentlessly monitor my blood sugar and blood pressure and they are both normal. Even stopped taking my blood pressure medicine. My follow up is going to be sweet lol.

    • MBacc on July 9, 2022 at 10:36 pm

      I’m curious about that follow up. All my uncles and aunts have Type 2. My parents and I are the only family that doesn’t.
      Will like to show my extended family your comment to get them to understand to eat better.

    • Pat Edwards on October 1, 2022 at 2:15 am

      How do you monitor your blood sugar?

    • Common Sense Conversation on October 13, 2022 at 1:17 am

      Beautiful presentation, well articulated, easily understood, made complex easily understandable…

  16. Bruce Laird on August 18, 2022 at 2:55 pm

    11 months after watching this and staying on the no to low sugar diet I had my blood draw and physical results yesterday. Dropped fasting glucose from 112 to 91. Weight dropped from 193 to 170 pounds. Thanks for the great video and definitely a life changer!

  17. Rui Hao on September 23, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I wanna say, all the things in this video are true and most of them happened on me, the change of hunger, cravings, taste of food, blood test results, weight loss, mood, everything! I have been keeping low carb diet for around 3 months, it did change my life. The point is, cutting the sugar and carbs can make you healthier.

  18. Doc Brown on October 5, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    7 days in to my 30 day no sugar/keto diet. First few days were so tough with cravings but now I feel so much better!

  19. TheHumanBodyTalk on December 7, 2022 at 11:27 am

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

  20. Aku the Siren on December 7, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    So what would be a good substitute for people with a sweet tooth? I now you mentioned no honey,no agave, no sugar, and not to buy sugar free sweeteners. But then what do we add if we want a healthy and sweet dessert?

    • Ana Sedlan on December 8, 2022 at 12:08 pm

      You can add a date. It’s so sweet
