    1. If you have Costco they sell stock and broth at really good bulk prices. Much better tasting than msg too.

  1. Great video! Does this mean that dry fasting can accelerate the fat burn since it not only provides energy, but also water?

  2. Have you been on Joe Rogans podcast Richard? Could be a great platform to get this much needed info out

  3. I’m confused… I think there’s a missing peice here. If you have fat and you don’t drink water. Won’t not drinking water turn on a switch that uses the fat to create water? I thought he was going there with this but it just got glossed over. It seems the only way dehydration can turn on the fructose switch is if there is glucose to turn it into fructose. What am I missing? here?

  4. Captivated from start to finish ! People find it so hard to lose weight on the government’s healthy food advise. UK government now getting more foods labelled with their calorie content. So cofusing and unhelpful

  5. Erm no, food companies want us to be fat! You can eat all the natural unprocessed foods you like and you won’t get fat! Especially if you had to work hard to get said food like you would if you lived on the wild!

  6. Surely you’re not telling me if I’m three times my normal weight it’s all down to salt, sugar and water. So if I stopped eating salt, sugar and stopped drinking I would immediately go back to my normal weight? 💨

  7. Regarding the Umami/MSG subject, how would you explain that some Asian countries that heavily use MSG and eat a lot of meat actually have one of the lowest obesity rates? 2016 numbers: China was at 6.20% vs. european countries at ~19-20%. They also eat a lot of rice, which is a high glycemic index food which should promote the production of fructose, based on what I understood from this presentation

  8. I am wondering how this applies to the Hadza tribe, which is always brought up as the example of carbs rich foods (in their case especially honey). Would you say that the frequency is what makes the biggest difference?

  9. there are people that belive polyunsaturated fatty acids are the problem would like to hear your opinion on that

  10. This is the first time I’ve heard about how high salt intake can be problematic. In low carb diet upping sodium intake is 10/10 times the recommended approach. This guy is bringing some interesting science to the table! More of him!

  11. Absolutely fascinating. There is so much new (to me) information here. I will have to watch again and make notes. Looking forward to part 3. Thank you so much.

  12. Another lecture to confuse us even further. I’m not convinced. A few things that stand out to me:
    – All studies have been done on animals, mostly rodents.
    – Besides salt, sucralose was also added to the water, could this combination be a factor?
    – To add extra water, a water gel was added to the food. Since this has a filling effect, does it not make sense that these animals consume less nutrients, and thus become leaner?
