Doctor Mike on Diets: Ketogenic Diet | Diet Review


  1. Love this! Very educational and would love more diet review videos. It’ll help keep everyone informed and debunk a lot of those myths. Safe to say I will probably never do the keto diet, I love pasta too much 😂😋

  2. Hye Dr Mike. How are you ? I know its super late for me to leave a comment on this video. However I have some curiosities.

    1. Is there high chances for acidosis in performing ketogenic diet ?
    2. Source of energy is changed to ketone bodies from glucose. So, can you please give a little bit more detail on how it affects DM type 2 in relation to DKA ?

    If you ever see and comment on this, thank you very much !

  3. He goes over the most important points.
    Here's a few others:
    Of the 2 most important groups that use Keto medically, epileptic children and diabetics:
    The longest study was 6 years, of which only 8% still kept to the diet.
    A significant minority had bone issues and stunted growth.

    The 2nd longest studies are only 1 year long, where it hasn't been damaging.

    You also do not need to be in Ketosis to burn more fat.
    Simply lowering your carb % will do this. Lowering your insulin production (or increasing insulin resistance) always have this effect. Lowering leptin levels also helps (if you can resist how hungry it will make you). This is called "starvation mode", and the easiest way to attain it is to not eat anything for 1-2 days.

    These hormonal effects are also why diabetics are technically fat-burning machines.

  4. @DoctorMike: is keto diet helpful for type 1 diabetic… I have seen articles both ways… some say it increases risk for kidney damage and some that says they hav e managed to reduce insulin intake drastically by going on keto diet… I’m trying to reduce hba1c below 7 and would really appreciate ur take on this

  5. Bruh I've lost 80lbs off not only keto but intermittent fasting. Went down 4 pants sizes. Never felt better. As far as missing out on certain nutrients and vitamins that's what wheatgrass is for. I Implement that along with antiviral supplements such as black seed oil and olive leaf extract. Also there are keto alcoholic beverage recipes. Hard liquors alone are keto friendly its what you Chase it with is the issue. I use carb and sugar free red bull with my whiskey 🥃 and I only drink on the weekends. Keto and intermittent fasting is definitely the way to go. Dr Berg. Look him up. Also check out the documentary The Magic Pill. It helps many illnesses and chronic diseases.

  6. You should be advising viewers to seek medical nutrition therapy and counseling from a registered dietitian when considering the ketogenic diet. Very disappointed in this video.

  7. I’m following the father diet of Keto, the Dukan Diet. Can you please try it? I’m finding it really energising, as it limits you to only protein for a maximum of 7 days, and slowly reintroduces other food groups to take your metabolism back to day zero. I find that instead of craving unhealthy fast food, I started to crave tomatoes and cucumbers and fruit after not having any of that for a whole week. It really makes you think differently about food. Highly recommend.

  8. If anyone is interested in someone that has been on a Keto diet for 10 years –

  9. everyone looking for 1 thing. going to keep failing. best diet is one that changes. if you can put a diet on a pie chart.. its incomplete.

  10. I needed this, i'm lucky keto diet hasnt caught on here in Africa. Ketosis happens naturally here half the people can't even afford food here so we don't play like that. But hey to each their own.

  11. Hey doc I lost 140 pounds and reversed type 2 diabeties. I avoid sugar soda carbs anything g processed i recomend thos for diabetics 😊

  12. This guy is a doctor he won't support Keto because profits will be lost. On Keto for few months feel awesome I had high insulin and IF and keto has corrected it and I'm still in progress my energy levels are great and I feel more at peace emotionally its amazing healthy fats are the way to go plenty of veggies and mid protein very low carb will lose your weight swap out Sugar for Natural stevia also water and Himalayan salt great for electrolytes. for your body and a little excersize doesn't hurt either ..(:

  13. Sorry, but the Keto diet is the ONLY healthy diet. Eating carbs is like eating poison. Pratically 99% of diseases comes from carbs.

  14. Could you comment on the keto rash (prurigo pigmentosa) and inform people about it? I haven't seen any of the more influential YouTubers, like you, do a video a video on it.

  15. Keto is short term survival mechanism that is good from an evolutionary standpoint when there was no other food source around organism can shift for a short time. If Carbs were so bad than why most longest cultures eat mostly carbs.

  16. Your lack of knowledge in this area, tied with laziness in researching the studies in regards to metabolic health is concerning. Enjoy your blissful fluff.

  17. The Keto flu is very mild, Keto is not good for weight loss it’s fucking amazing for weight loss and you don’t lose water on Keto and if you have brain fog you are not doing it right please get your facts straight!!!

  18. My mom lost weight really fast using some Keto diet she randomly stumbled upon. This is the link if you're curious because it freakin' worked somehow lol
    Just thought some other people may like it

  19. I tried it at and I almost had a heart attack but then again I am anemic very anemic any advice as to how an anemic person can keep a keto diet and not die

  20. #2 The Ketogenic Diet is good for the brain. I'm going to agree with that one. My mental health was at it's best while I was eating Keto. I'm not Keto anymore, but I am trying to eat less carbs (Pasta and bread are my weakness) and I have remained sugar free for the most part.

  21. I ❤️ your T- shirt. Your statements about Keto diet? not so much. Look up Dr Ken Berry or Ivor Cummins , or Dave Feldman

  22. A friend of mine that is doing the keto diet said I shouldn’t eat carrots 🤦🏻‍♀️ lol 😂 Keto makes you crazy!

  23. Keto Keto Keto, we made salad bowls all day.

    Seriously though, this keto diet is going viral quite a bit. We did a review breakdown on our channel of a trending 28-day keto diet challenge. Not sure how many people can take it on though.

  24. Yes it’s very strict, but you can definitely have a cheat day every now and then. For example, my dad eats keto and one night he ate a whole pizza and a couple beers. Not only did he not enjoy them as much as he did before keto(meaning he had fewer cravings for it), but in the morning he felt fine and he was still in ketosis

  25. Seems like those people experiencing the “keto flu” in extension haven’t fully done their research. Reasons can include lack of electrolytes, not watching the ingredients snuck in foods, not enough fats, etc… ALWAYS do enough research before adapting to a different lifestyle

  26. I've been on many diets over the decades and the ketogenic way of eating is the absolute easiest to maintain (for 18 months) and the most fun with all the delicious foods that keep me satiated. I've had no problems socially and have {miraculously} lost my cravings for breads/sweets. Oh, and down 40 pounds to my goal weight.

  27. Two week ago I was waking up with blood glucose levels of 250. Its only been 2 weeks and now I'm waking up with BG levels of 115.

  28. So you said you don't recommend this diet to us because there is no long term studies at the moment, but you also mentioned it's a viable diet for Type 2 diabetics. Do you still recommend this diet for Type 2 Diabetics then? Thank you doctor.

  29. As a diabetic, I was in ketosis before I got diagnosed and the endocrinologist told me that it is not good to be in ketosis, so is it actually safe( I know I can’t due to I need glucose) for normal people to be in ketosis. Plus will this lead to someone being in keto acidosis?

  30. Dr Mercola says that you shouldn't stay on ketogenic for long periods of time. You can also get similar benefits from intermittent fasting. Best wishes

  31. But can a type 1 dieabeatec (me) do this diet I'm 15 and I have struggled with being over weight and I started to lose weight super fast but then I found out I was dieabeatict and I was going into ketoacidosis Wich is a lot like the keto diet just you know the whole acoma thing 🤨🤔😬😭 "I just want to be skinny HELP"

  32. sorry I disliked this. I liked it overall, but you could have added examples instead of tapping your finger… lol. But KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK

  33. I lost 70 lbs with IF and I look way younger than I am.any guesses how old I am?? and I feel keto is really hard when compared to IF anyone else with me?

  34. With all due respect on the claim that LDL is bad cholesterol, that is very very old medical school. LDL is not bad and the potential risks you presented can be refuted. Sugar and lectins is the number one problem in our food. Reduction of sugar and wiping it completely is the answer. LDL transports cholesterol from the liver to cells, all cells need cholesterol to function properly. LDL is a super anti oxidant and prevents cancer. It makes vitamins especially vit D, hormones, steroids, cortisol, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen as well. Doctors prescribe statins to reduce cholesterol not knowing the culprit is sugar increases in the body that causes strokes, not cholesterol. Poor LDL circulates to mend the issue and it’s buildup in the arteries is mistaken with clots that occur there which is the problem of high sugar in the blood. If you consume 1 pound of butter, blood cholesterol barely increases to 1%. Stress increases that by making the liver increase cholesterol up to 400%. Liver produces between 3-4 grams of cholesterol daily to insure cell maintenance. Do you know that new born babies are using colostrum in milk from (moms mammary glad) and function on Ketosis! Why don’t babies then die of heart attacks and strokes? LDL has nothing to do with strokes. Please don’t call LDL bad cholesterol because it’s not! People need to know that consuming good fats never makes you sick. Oh and I have never felt better on any diet but the keto diet. It’s a lifestyle, not a periodic term diet as you mention. @Thomas DeLauer.

  35. The fact that this diet works for type II diabetes should be enough for millions in this country to go on a low carb regime.
