  1. cut out all processed foods and no sugar. Raw foods mostly. Eat onions, garlic, honey (very small quantity, chia, walnuts,. I am never hungry. I have two ab lines and over 65 yo. Do HIIT at night. Build muscle and burn fat. Eat only foods that burn fat – cayenne pepper, avocado and been in keto for a long time. Anti cancer foods – berries, cinnamon, tumeric and on and on.

  2. High saturated fat is an issue with keto. Also cardiogists have found that people with very low carbs have problems with muscles. I eat essentially the Okinawan diet with intermittant fasting, very small window of eating. Low sodium, raw leafy plants and high nutrient foods in low quantities. No longer hungry. Gut health, thin blood, HIIT, essential. Studied over 14 years.

  5. Dr. Berg I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer back in April of 2000 20 no one no doctors no nutritionist no one even the nurses tell me not to worry about it I have no faith in the medical organizations out here I just want to know if it's okay for me to do keto again do you have a video 4 cancer health or anything natural cuz I'm fed up with the drugs and set up with the doctors I I have a sense that they're not being honest with me and I can't go to the natural hospitals because my insurance won't cover it they are telling me out of pocket will be 30 to $90,000 I can't do that I'm considering going it on my own

  6. A huge benefit to Keto and Intermittent fasting that you don't hear a lot about, it makes an incredible difference to people who suffer from anxiety and depression. Especially taking supplements as well, often encouraged by Dr. Berg, I take a good multi, and definately Vit D

  7. What do you think doctor about ready-made keto powder or capsules? It only takes hours to get on keto on its way, is it safe? Is it possible for the body to stop using its own ketones when using ??ready-made keto?

  8. you assume anyone who didn't lose weight on keto cheated. what if not? I was on pure keto for 4 months, blood ketones from 0.9 am to 3.0 pm. I didn't lose a kilo! I tested my insulin levels and it was still too high (10.35) even though my carbohydrates were up to 20g per day

  9. Doctor berg you're a lifesaver and your videos are life saving. I regret that initially in the beginning I used to ignore your videos but fortunately I realised that it was the worst mistake I ever made in my life considering that I used to be 95 kgs as a result of eating frequently high sugar rich food like ice creams,sweets along with refined carbs like chips,pizza,burgers,bread etc because I used to know absolutely nothing about insulin resistance but after watching your life saving videos i started following keto completely cut sugar and took 50g carbs along with IF then started exercising as a result I lost 15 kgs right now I'm 80 kgs feeling very healthy along with improved mental cognition

  10. My 75-year-old husband is following you and your site. He is on your keto plan and has reversed his cognitic decline which was insullin resistance driven. (We also use Functional Medicine.) We appreciate your work. We found youbecasue out Functional Medicine Phsyciain told us to "If you want to go keto, go to Dr. Eric Berg's FB site and follow his recommendations exactly" and he did.

  11. Dude you are killing your clients. you need to get educated. When you study the microbiome you will find the KETO diet causes a dysbiosis of your gut bacteria, which sets you up fro disease. As a professional you need to get current and stop teaching people things that will kill them.. You are probably not even aware that your gut bacteria affect your metabolism.. You are not even aware that the American Medical Association, after 30 years of bullet proof research has no adopted the Vegan Whole Food low oil planet based diet. The opposite of what your are teaching.. the AMA is currently having hospitals ban eggs, dairy and meat as the now recognize these food are detrimental to patient health. Just to give you a little education, our bodies are driven to consume whole food plant based carb's, in fact this is what your gut bacteria wants, NOT the garbage you are preaching.. IGF-1 is 8x lower on a planet based diet. Sorry Doctor you have been debunked… STOP teaching KETO, in another 5 years you'll likely be sued for the damage you are doing to people.
