Dr. Berg discusses the long term effects of low carbohydrate diets. There are no necessary carbohydrates. Your body will not experience not needing to take in glucose for energy. It will run much better on fat fuel or ketones. A low carb diet plan is NOT a low-calorie diet plan. They are 2 separate things. Being on the ketogenic diet, you want to consume limitless veggies. When your body is used to the low carbohydrate diet, it will not begin to yearn for sugar or carbohydrates; it will be the opposite!

  1. I am a medical doctor. I am happy to know that you know your facts right. Your explanations are spot on. I learned a lot from you. Thanks, Dr Berg.

  2. started low-carbing in 1996, before it was popular. took 2 1-2 years to lose 100 lbs. 22 years later i am still on it. have gained back 10, due to aging, menopause, and a sedentary job… no cravings… no keto-acidosis… am the only one in my family with normal cholesterol… and my yearly blood work is always excellent. has worked VERY well for me, long term.

    1. 22 years? Congrats for that… Is grass fed meat a must in keto? Did you take only grass fed meat all this 22 years?

  3. My doctor actually got excited when I told her I was on the Keto diet and says she tried it out herself from time to time. She was impressed with how much my health improved from my last physical. I guess not all doctors are completely against it.

    1. Awesome. That’s why it’s better to be upfront with your PCP and don’t be afraid to change drs if the response is negative.

  4. Dear dr. Berg I really love your videos, it is so informative and easy to learn. I also do the low carb diet since march 2018, and i feel really great, my acne goes away, my body weight is ideal (i lose around 15kgs/33pounds in 4months), so thank you and keep inspiring us👌🏻

  5. I’ve been on a Keto for 4 months now. I did get the Keto flu in the beginning. Felt bad for about 10 days. Then within a month, my cystic acne (a lifetime condition) cleared up completely. I lost 20 lbs, and wasn’t even looking to lose weight. I heard it was good for your brain and I was starting to forget words. Not only do I have great recall again, but I focus for hours on my work, where I couldn’t sit still before. One of the best things is I no longer have arthritis pain, and my knees don’t “creak” when walking. I’m old…and now I have NO medical conditions and take no meds! It has been a life changer. I just worry if I’m losing too much weight. From a 10 to a 6! I have lots of energy, and can go 16 hrs without food. And work out for 2 1/2 hours straight! I’m a believer!
    Oh, and at my physical last month, my lab reports were perfect! Dr. said, “Whatever it is you are doing, keep it up! I don’t have 35 year olds with these type of stats!” Loving life! My husband no longer has Acid Reflux, which he treated for years. Neither of us take meds or have any conditions! We are Seniors!

  6. aghhh, this is the main reason I don’t talk about my diet to anyone. Your friends will always, automatically become nutritionists who know better than you. lol

    1. Had a man at the gym explain to me how the keto diet doesn’t work because you need more carbs (not arguing any point objectively with the facts), so you should do the bro diet and eat whatever you want on the weekends. While I didn’t disagree that it worked, simply because I didn’t try it, I asked him to explain to me why it didn’t work. He couldn’t explain, but I could explain how and why it does work. I didn’t film it, but there’s part of me that wishes I had to help others. I just don’t ever want to seem exploitative of that person, because what if they would’ve gone keto but now that I’ve called them out they now defensively hold onto their argument. Doesn’t always happen, but I don’t think I should take that chance.

  7. I find that I only get cravings for bread, pasta, when I smell it at a restaurant or people are eating it around me. I think it is more of a psychological/physiological thing because if I am not around it then I don’t crave it. One thing that has been hard to give up is pizza, but there are alternatives for just about everything on the keto diet, like cauliflower pizza. Thank you Dr. Berg for all of your informative and science-based videos!

    1. Me too..i have a sweet tooth and i thought it woul be very difficult to stay away from sugar.but it the bread and pasta that i was craving like crazy.when i was not much of bread eater before..i thought it was strnge

  8. Long term Keto is a Win, Win effect!! Love how I feel everyday ! Wish I had known about this healthy way of life along time ago !!!!

  9. A coworker recently told me how great I’m looking and feeling and assumed I was starving myself and working out 7 days a week. When I said keto and IF their face soured and they said oh but only short term because that’s going to mess up ur liver and give u diabetes. I could not believe their ignorance. I had to give him a lesson

    1. I often think that the only difference between a normal meal and a keto meal is an extra helping of veggies instead of a starch. For example a steak and potatoes and broccoli versus a steak and broccoli and more broccoli. How is that worse for your liver?

    1. Same here. Never felt better and healthier . No more gout , no more head fog, no more drained feeling,
      Best dietary decision you can make

  10. Im a 16 year old kid, I used to weigh 85 kgs , my height is 171 , I was on and off a “diet” for 2 years, barely got results while on an extreme calorie deficit. When July 2019 came by I thought of going on a ketogenic diet. Now im 68 kgs , I feel great, and able to fast without getting extreme cravings.

    1. @Storm Child still doing it, I’m down 85lbs in 37 weeks. Slow and steady wins the race (and prevents the saggy skin issue too!). Best part is I just turned 62, feeling like I’m in my late 40s!

    2. You just stunted your growth kid and it will affect you later on in life. This diet and plan is mainly for overweight older people who are on the verge of becoming diabetic. You had 3 – 5 years to make a gradual decrease instead of force yourself into a strict substantial calorie deficit especially while your body is still needing nutrients, such as fat and protein to continue to help you develop into your adult body. Keeping carbs low is fine but maybe it wouldn’t have hurt if you slowed the rate of weight loss in your age as at this point you need to make sure you get the right nutrition and do not malnurish yourself before you reach 21. The people who are older are incentivised to lose weight more quickly because of their increased risk of diseases and health issues, not to mention many already either prediabetic or already suffering Type 2 diabetes. Unlike them you have time. Anyways…

  11. My side effect of doing Dr. Berg’s Keto: stopped glaucoma degeneration and sigh loss, eliminated neuropathy that had bugged me for years, eliminated arthritis pain, stopped diverticulitis attacks. Yeah, I think I like these side effects…

    1. @Sonu Kumar Not necessarily, neuropathy is really just nerve damage. Depending on why you have nerve damage there are some things you can do to mitigate or fix it. High amounts of B12, Avoid factors that may cause nerve damage, including repetitive motions, cramped positions that put pressure on nerves, exposure to toxic chemicals, smoking and overindulging in alcohol, and most importantly exercise and workout. Nerve damage is mostly due to your motor neurons and units failing to activate and respond properly. Quite literally training your motor neurons and body will help strengthen your neurological connection with your body. Get those neurons firing, get your body moving without being extremely repetitive in your exercises.

  12. I’ve learned so much from Dr Berg and Dr Ekberg as well. So many great explanations of how the body works and proper nutrition. I’ve been on Keto for almost 2 months and lost 40 pounds. I am 43 and am feeling better and more energized. The advice I have heard from both doctors had really helped! Thank you Dr Berg!

  13. I went the keto diet a few years ago and my doctor strongly objected, I did it anyway. I lost 120 pounds and got to my ideal body weight, I was able to stop taking my BP meds. My doctor was shocked to see that all of my labs improved greatly. He finally agreed that he MAY have been wrong about keto. I really liked the idea of me not counting vegies as carbs and and at them all the time.

  14. I’ve been low carb about 2years. I’m 74 and feel awesome. Got scared into it by a pre-diabetes diagnosis. I’m not cheating cause like feeling good. Thanks for videos.

    1. 9 months update. I’m still here and actually feel and act younger then three years ago. Right now I’m at about 35 hrs of a fast and it feels like I’m on Cruze. Great day

  15. I feel so good cutting out all those bad carbs. No cravings anymore. It is so wonderful. I love how Dr. Berg talks about “they” say!!! So true.

  16. I’ve been on keto for 2 weeks…I have noticed that the itching of my skin I had every night for approximately 2 years has completely gone and my arthritis pain has greatly lessened to the point I have not taken pain relief for the past week. Thank you Dr Berg.

  17. 5 years ago, I went to my doctors office for a physical. Went back a week later for the bad news. I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and had pre diabetes. The doctor put me on 4 different meds, and off I go. A co worker told me to try keto, which I did. In just about a year, I lost 80lbs. Now it’s time to go for my next physical. Cholesterol is normal. Blood pressure is normal. No diabetes. The doctor loves the results and told me we are going to keep the meds, as they are working well. I then explained to him that I never took the meds, and that I have changed my eating habits to keto. He got upset with me, and told me I’m going to kill myself on this diet. I got up and told him to F off, and got a new doctor. This lifestyle is not for everyone, but definitely give it a shot. The longer you’re in it, the easier it gets! Hope this helps.

    1. I love your response to your doctor! As well-meaning as they may be, they will kill you…truly! I’m like you…I’ll tell them in a minute that I’m not going to do this or that. We have to be our own guides because no one will care for us like we will. I’ve been doing the IF and lost 106 lbs so far….now I’m going to go for the keto and I am expecting good results. Keep that attitude…more people need it!

    2. @Michael Dierkes – Good for you!
      Your M.D. was upset because he “lost a customer”… There are appx 135 “billable” types of medical practice, where a medical doctor can earn income; however telling you to eat properly OR how to eat properly isn’t one of them.
      He wants to TREAT YOU, not CURE YOU. … There is a discrete difference between the two.

      I’ve lost 125 lbs (and keep it off easily); and I urge you to keep up the good work.
      Dr Berg is on target, as usual………………………… Thanks, Dr. Berg.

  18. I’ve diabetes for 16 years and used to eat carbs heavy meals. My diabetes was out of control for the longest of time. After changing to low carns diet, my diabetes improved drastically. My psoriasis also improved tremendously. I used to need 75 units of insulin per day. But now I just need 4 units per day.
