    @maximilianUTU Please avoid posting misconceptions: Atkins is not high protein, it’s high fat. Trying to do a lower fat version of atkins is not only stupid (since gluconeogenesis prevents ketosis), but also dangerous. The glucose produced from gluconeogenesis also spikes insulin. High fat is not an issue in the lack of insulin, because it cannot be stored without it. Doing low fat atkins, however, will shunt all the fat you do eat right into adipocites, and cause chronic disease.

    @PFG666 Partly true: The milling and refining process to make bleached and refined (white) Flour was developed in the late 19th century, circa 1890. Just around that time things started to get bad. The sugar overdose in the 50s and beyond exacerbated an already growing issue exponentially. The problem with white flour is the extreme insulin swing, as the lack of fiber and mineral salts make sugar absorbtion nearly instant in the gut. That degenerates into insulin resistance and the usual stuff

    @jackdevanie ha spoken like an true ignorant person, Congats dude

  • PFG666:

    @maximilianUTU You contradict yourself a bit there, sugar – the bitter truth emphasises on the dangers of fructuose and sucrose, which is 50% fructose. This while at the same time, labelling glucose (starch) as something that we are meant to eat. People have been eating “flowered bread” for centuries. Diabetes has only recently developed into a pandemic. It’s not the carbs, it’s the sucrose/fructose.

    when I was visiting the U.S. I was surprised how fat the turkey and the chicken was.. listen: those animals are not supposed to be fat.. something wrong in with your farmers.. or should I say: food industry?

    @raztis1
    please look for “Sugar – the bitter Truth” on YouTube (the long version).
    Carbs in denaturized forms are the reason for many diseases.
    Insuline resistance is the body’s natural reaction to carb overdose.

    Pressing carbs violently into the cell with external insulins does only shift the place where the problem occures: no longer in the blood, but now in the cell.

    Reduce Carbs!! (but not with proteins like Atkins) Avoid sugar, flower, starch, fructose. Eat vegetables, natural yoghurt

  • Kan981:

    How come the video stops playing after thirty minutes? This is really a very interesting video, I’m learning a lot of things I only had inklings about, but now at last is put into a complete, coherent lesson!
    Thanks!

  • skyphor:

    @fugiboo You obviously did not watch the whole video, because in the last section he explains why someone doesn’t have to be obese just because they look big.

  • fugiboo:

    Im surprised that a doctor talking about obesity is overweight. Talk about being hippocritical.

  • liya2010:
