  1. What of I'm not diabetic, take no meds, and I want to do keto on my own. ? I'm asking because I can't get a straight answer from my doc on what to do . I'm gonna try and see if he can refer me to someone

  2. I thought I had finally straightened it out, and now this video comes along and says "eat as much fat as you want, until you feel satiated". But, in other of Dr. Phinney's videos, he specifically mentions that fat should be about 75% of our daily food mix. Now what?

  3. This is such a wonderful explanation by Dr. Phinney and Dr. McKenzie. I wish all the people putting mayonnaise, cream cheese or butter on everything would see this. You DO NOT need to go crazy with fat. It's mostly about keeping carbs low and eating enough protein. If you are obese, don't go crazy with the fat. As you slim down, add more fat if you want. That's how it works.

  4. This is eye opening. You obliterate these ideas of 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs that every keto website I watch is promoting. Yours makes such sense👍

  5. I have seen people following the ketogenic diet without supervision. How can they know if it is for them and if their bodies are functioning alright inside. I am worried about artery function too.

  6. I do keto + intermittent fasting (18/6) and I feel great. Went from 24% bodyfat to 12%. (Lost 25 pounds) I don't want to lose more fat. But I find it difficult to eat enough to maintain my weight. Trying to reduce the fasting hours doesn't make any difference. Weight comes off easily but regaining it is extremely slow.

    How to speed that up?
