Dietitians Debunk 18 Weight Loss Myths

Lorraine Kearney: One of
the biggest myths that I get from my clients is that I need to skip meals and
starve in order to lose weight. It’s not true. So, if you skip meals, it’s gonna have such a
negative effect on your body that when you do go to
sit down and eat, you’ll probably overconsume. Narrator: That’s
Lorraine Kearney, one of three dietitians we
brought into our studios. My name is Ryan Turner. My name is Nikita Kapur. Narrator: To debunk 18 of
the most common weight-loss myths. Kearney: The biggest myth
that frustrates me the most is that all calories are
created equally. A calorie is not just a calorie. It depends on the source
of your calories, whether it’s coming
from caloric-dense foods or nutritional-dense foods. Caloric-dense foods
would be more so our cookies, our cakes. We can have a cookie
that’s 100 calories, we’ll eat it,
it’ll digest really fast, then it’s gonna spike
our blood sugar levels where, when we start
to crash again, we’re gonna crave
more sugar for that energy pick-me-up. Narrator: And that can
make you gain weight. Kearney: On the other hand,
you can have a banana. Narrator: Which
is an example of a nutritionally
dense food. Kearney: I get the
question a lot, do bananas make you fat? Bananas do not
make you fat. Bananas, they’re a great
source of potassium, but for those 100 calories you’re also gonna get the
fiber and the nutrients that your body needs
in that cellular level to make sure that
you are healthy and that you’re nourished. Narrator: And you definitely
need to nourish your body if you’re trying to
lose weight. Kapur: When we are
restricting calories, you are restricting the
energy source of your body. You’re also restricting the
energy source of your brain. And if that’s happening, then, you know,
very primitive, protective mechanisms start to kick into place where your body
senses that as a physiological threat and does start to shift
your metabolic balance to burn less because
it’s getting less. It’s kinda like a
budget. Right? So, if you have a paycheck and you’re running
out of funds, you’re going to conserve
how much you pay till your next paycheck. Your body does the same. Your body will jump
into this protective physiological,
biological mechanism to reduce the amount
of energy you’re using, which is why it is hard for
people to maintain weight. Narrator: And starving
yourself can also shrink
your muscles. Turner: You wanna
make sure that you’re not eating less than 70% of your
overall calorie needs. If you do, that’s
where not only are you probably gonna
feel extremely hungry and it’s gonna take you off of any goals that
you’re setting, but you’re probably
gonna start compromising your muscle mass as well, and that’s where weight
loss is gonna be unhealthy. Narrator: But while the
amount of calories you consume matters, the timing might not. Turner: Timing your meals
is always a big question. Everyone comes to me
and they kinda smirk and they think that I’m
gonna give them a thumbs up when they say, “I don’t eat after 6 o’clock or 7 o’clock.” And I say, “Oh, all
right, do you enjoy that?” And they say, “No.” And I say, “Well then
maybe eating after is OK.” Because timing of day is not going to
affect weight loss. Calories are what’s
going to affect weight loss or body-fat loss. So, if you eat a bunch
of additional calories and you’re in calorie surplus and those are coming
late at night, then that’s what’s causing
something like weight gain. Narrator: And what
about eating first thing in the morning? Kearney: It depends on the
body, and it depends on the person and their
relationship with food. For a lot of people,
me included, if I don’t eat a meal, I
usually feel very deprived, and it’s like I want to
make up for it later. If that happens, then that’s when we can
add in a lot of calories. Personally, I’m a huge
advocate of breakfast. Our body runs on fuel,
and food is our fuel. So if we have our breakfast, then we feel we have
more sustained energy throughout the day. Narrator: And if you do
choose to eat breakfast, feel free to go for
that 2% yogurt. Turner: Now, fat is
incredibly necessary. We should not be
afraid of fat. We need fat in the diet. Fat’s gonna be
necessary for things like absorbing nutrients,
like the fat-soluble nutrients like vitamin A and
D and E and K. And you also need to
make sure that fat, specifically cholesterol, is what’s gonna help produce
things like your hormones, so things like estrogen and testosterone,
growth hormones, so we need all those
kind of things. Narrator: Not only is
fat healthy, but fat-free foods are often
loaded with sugar or salt. Kearney: So, if you
have a wholesome product and you’re removing
the fat of it, it’s gonna taste
completely different. You probably wouldn’t
even like it. But what they’re gonna
do is replace that flavor with something else, and usually it’s either
sodium or sugar. So, with sugar, when we have, like, a yogurt that has the fruit
at the bottom, they’re gonna have
way more sugars than if you had, like,
a 2% Greek yogurt. Narrator: And, as it
turns out, fat isn’t the only nutrient
you can keep in your diet and still lose weight. Kearney: One of the biggest
myths I get about carbs is that you must omit them
from your diet to lose weight, or my body doesn’t
digest them well and I have to omit them because I’d never
lose weight unless I restrict myself. It’s not true. Narrator: And it’s just
not sustainable. Kearney: It’s almost
impossible to have a no-carb diet. Fruits and vegetables are
known as carbohydrates, and we must get those
for their nutrients. Why carbs have
a bad name? It’s because of
the simple carbs. The carbs that you see
prepackaged that are the cookies, the cakes, the sodas,
the potato chips. They’re called
simple carbs because the chemical
structure of them is usually one to two glucose
molecules put together. So, when you have, like,
a small glucose molecule, it’s easy for them
to break away. But with our complex carbs, they are really long
chains of carbon that usually are about
18-carbon long, and then, by the time
that your body starts to break it down, it’s gonna take a while, and
that’s exactly what we want because it helps balance
our blood sugar and also that fiber
keeps us full for longer and then also prevents
us from snacking. So, eat your carbs. Definitely eat your
carbs and eat your bread. Bread’s delicious; it’s
one of my favorite things. Narrator: And she has
a pro tip for finding bread with
more complex carbs. Kearney: Read your
ingredient list. With bread, a lot of those
mass-produced breads that are in the bread aisle
that are shelf-stable, they can last a month without getting
mold on them. And when you look
at the ingredient list, it’s probably about
50 ingredients long. They’re the ones
we wanna avoid. When you’re getting bread, get the fresh bread that
comes from the local bakery, which is usually around
the deli counter area inside of grocery stores. Those will have maybe
four or five ingredients, it’ll mold after two days, but you can preserve it by just putting it
into the freezer and take it out
as you need it. Narrator: And,
speaking of bread, what about going
gluten-free to lose weight? Kearney: Gluten-free
for weight loss can be a huge
marketing ploy. So, with gluten-free,
there are a lot of people that do have an
intolerance to gluten. Or they have celiac disease, which is where the body
starts attacking itself and can deteriorate
the body. Narrator: But there are
also people without these conditions
who are looking to… Kearney: Blame something
like the gluten without checking the
rest of their diet. If you are honest
with yourself, recording your food,
checking the ingredients, and then you eat the gluten and you feel the
intolerance, then great. But a lot of people will
choose to just jump in and be like, gluten’s
the enemy. Narrator: So, most of us
don’t need to cut out gluten or fat or carbs to
lose weight. But there are some products
better left on the shelf. Kearney: The diet sodas
are terrible, with all the additives,
preservatives in them, and the hidden sugars. A lot of the added sugars
are the synthetic sugars that are supposed
to be great because they don’t
release insulin, which then doesn’t cause a
spike in blood sugar levels. But, internally, if we don’t stimulate
the release of insulin, those sugars, the synthetic
sugars, go to the liver, build up around the liver, hinder the functioning
of the liver, and then can lead to
nonalcoholic fatty disease. If I’m gonna have a soda, which I have once
in a blue moon, it will be the real thing. Yes, there’s more sugar in it, but it’s something that I
don’t have on a regular basis. Narrator: Better yet,
she says, drink water. Kearney: Jazz up
your water. Add fruit to it, add some
mint or cucumber, lemon. Yes, it’ll take a little bit
for your taste buds to reset, but you’re getting so many
nutrients from that water, and your body
requires water for it to function
optimally. Water is one of
the six nutrients that the body needs. And when we’re
dehydrated, it also mimics the
signs of hunger. So people turn to food a
lot if they’re dehydrated, not realizing that
they’re not hungry, it’s just your body saying, “Give me some water,
I’m thirsty.” Narrator: And what
about juice? Kearney: Oh, juice
cleanses. [laughs] So, juice cleanses are,
like, one of my pet peeves. If you’re having a juice
every once in a while, great. You’re still getting the
antioxidants out of it, you’re still getting
the nutrients, but you’re
removing that fiber. And fiber is key for the
body to support gut health. With a lot of juice cleanses,
they’re hella expensive, and we have this belief that they’re gonna be
better for our bodies or it’s a cleansing
effect of our body. Realistically, what’s
happening is that, when you have those
juice cleanses that are mostly coming
from, like, fruit sugars and then the
vegetable sugars, it’s a high, high amount
of fructose in the body. When the body consumes
excess fructose, it has a spasming effect
of the GI tract that can lend to
the cleansing effect. So that when we
are actually having a reaction to the high amounts of fructose
in the body, people think it’s the
cleansing effect because the marketing
ploys have led us to believe that way. But it’s not. You would be better
cleansing your body by actually eating the
apple, eating the spinach, and eating all the other fruits
that are in that cleanse. That would be better for you because fiber is our
natural detox. What it does is it goes
through the body, picks up, like, excess
fat, metabolic waste, and help cleanse it out. Narrator: But juice cleanses
aren’t the only diet fads that don’t often work. Turner: Intermittent
fasting is probably a question I get all the time. It’s…we can kinda put
it in that myth category. Narrator: Now, it can
restrict calories and, at least temporarily,
help you lose weight. Turner: If you’re only allowed
to eat food for eight hours, that just gives someone
a lot of structure, and that can be very,
very helpful. You can only get so many
calories in your mouth in that time. On the flip side, someone can get a lot of
calories in their mouth during that time as well. So, someone can, and I’ve
seen many people do it, they’ve gained weight
through intermittent fasting. So it’s not just gonna
be this quick fix; there’s nothing magical to it. Narrator: And the same goes
for many popular diets. Kapur: So, one of the
common diets right now that is gaining popularity
is the ketogenic diet. So, a lot of people
who are doing that are just eliminating
carbohydrates, which is why that’s
hard to sustain, because your body does need carbohydrates
for a reason. To be honest, there’s
not a lot of research that’s saying that that is
something that is helpful. There’s maybe a lot of
research in mice models, but that hasn’t
been transcribed into human studies. Narrator: And while people
have lost weight on keto, it’s often not
without side effects. Kapur: They’re eliminating
whole grains and legumes, certain fruits
and vegetables, and really increasing
their fat intake, which, although
fats are important, excess of any
nutrient can cause metabolic changes
in your body that will impact your
cardiovascular health, your physical health,
your metabolic health. So, an example
would be patients that we’re seeing in
the clinical setting are following ketogenic
diets, are seeing weight loss, however, are coming with
higher cholesterol markers, they’re coming with
higher LDL markers, they’re coming with more
irritable bowel symptoms, they’re coming with more
gastrointestinal discomfort. Narrator: The truth is
there’s no one tool that will make you
magically lose weight. Kapur: I think the most
prevalent concept around health these
days is biohacking, which is this idea that
you can defeat biology, you can work around your
genetic predispositions, your metabolic parameters, and that is actually not true. And the reason for
that is because you cannot defeat biology, you cannot hack hunger, you cannot hack access
to healthcare, you cannot hack motivation. And this idea that, again,
if those results are there, you’re going to be able
to feel more satisfied is also not true. So, this biohacking works on
this concept and this belief that, you know, you can work
your way and fix your body, and that prescribes to
the social construct that it is up to you
to change that. Narrator: And that’s also
why most diets don’t work. Kapur: They’re hard
to sustain, they’re hard to maintain, so the results are
very temporary, which is why we go back
to something, trying something new. It’s important to focus
on behaviors rather than outcomes. Kearney: Where you should
start is record your food. A simple food log
to lose weight is really just being
honest with yourself, identifying your foods
and the hidden ingredients that could be
contributing to excess of hundreds and hundreds
of calories per day. Take olive oil. Olive oil is great. But when we cook with it, we usually free-pour
it into a pan. Each tablespoon of olive
oil has 128 calories. Now, if you’re pouring in,
like, 6, 7, 8 tablespoons with your vegetables, you’re getting almost 1,000
calories that you don’t need. Narrator: So, pro tip for
cooking with olive oil: Kearney: Put it in, wait
till your pan is hot, once it’s hot, add 1 to 2
tablespoons of olive oil, and then add in
your vegetables. When the pan is hot enough,
it will disperse easier and then you’ll use less. Also, once you put
the vegetables in, some water and moisture will
come from those vegetables and will add to the
liquid in the pan, so you actually don’t
need to add excess in. Narrator: And if
you are being mindful of what you eat, that whole idea of cheating?
Kearney isn’t a fan. Kearney: I don’t think
there is any cheat meals. I don’t like the word cheat. I think it gives it this, it gives us this, like,
higher power, like, oh, this is really bad
and I can’t believe I did this, I completely fell
off the wagon. No, remove that. Because then you’re
gonna want it more, you’re gonna feel even
more guilty about it. If you go out and
you’re socializing and you’re trying out one of
New York’s best restaurants that’s filled with cream
and butter, enjoy it. Just try to get a
salad to start. And filling up on salad is a
great way to cut the calories, and then, have, like,
one of the appetizers that are not in line
with your health goals with your table and share,
’cause sharing is caring. Narrator: And there’s
more good news. Kearney: You can still
lose weight while drinking
occasional alcohol, if you’re sticking to
the cleaner foods. And by omitting all the foods that you tend to
enjoy in the past, by omitting alcohol, trying
to increase your exercise, and then doing this, like,
detox fad all in one go, it’s overwhelming, and it’s
setting you up for failure. So doing it in stages
and being more realistic about what you
can change now, and then work towards it. What I usually recommend
to my clients is take care of your food now. You’ll understand
how your body feels when it’s nourished, understand how your gut health is supposed
to be supported, and then we’ll
focus on alcohol and working in
the exercise. Narrator: But the thing is, no matter how much
we care about it, weight definitely
isn’t everything. Kapur: I think one of
the biggest myths around weight
loss and weight is that overweight
equals unhealthy, normal weight equals healthy, as defined by the
BMI category. BMI is a very inaccurate
measure of health because it is just looking
at your height and weight without taking into account what your metabolic
factors and parameters are, what is your physiological
health, your physical health, your sleep, your
mental health, your relationship to food. And I think it’s
very important to factor those things if we really wanna define
someone as healthy. And if we’re not gonna look
at it more holistically, I think what that does is it marginalizes people
in bigger bodies. Narrator: Plus, not
everyone can lose weight, even if they’re putting
in the same effort. Kapur: That’s a very
common myth, that everybody should have, has the same ability
to lose weight, and if everybody eats
the same way, they’re gonna look
the same way, which is very untrue,
and that’s incorrect. And the reason for that is I think it’s important
to understand that someone’s weight is a factor
of so many different things. It is so complex. All the way from your
genetic predispositions, your family history, your
past medical history, your relationship to food
as you were growing up, because not everybody
has access to food. Because health is about
inclusion, access, connection, joy,
physiological well-being, and we have to take those
factors into account.

    I wish they would talk about the gut benefits for those who have digestive issues using intermittent fasting

  2. funnybunnies Posted on October 15, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    Just think any food that has Carbohydrate in high amount has Sugar which feeds Cancer cells, create inflammation, cause skin problem, cause insulin resistance but if people start applying these things in daily life what these dietician, Doctors, Chemist, medicine industry, fast food industry, supermarket, local market, restaurant, cafe, gym trainers, etc will do

  3. San Francisco Love Posted on October 15, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    Wheat causes acid reflux and brain fog for me. I also feel like I want to snack all day the second I have wheat. It worked for me to cut it out

  4. Hey, I'mValarie Posted on October 15, 2019 at 5:53 pm

    I may not be a registered dietician or nutritionists, but I think working with both for over 15 years, makes me a little knowledgeable… This is all very generic and basic information. People with medical issues like myself pcos and insulin resistance need to follow a few different methods… Though, these are all correct, they're not the end all be all of nutrition and diet. It's also in the wording too.

    I do intermittent fasting, I only eat between 11am – 7pm and I've found it to really help.

  5. karenKristal Posted on October 15, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    there are nutrients in water?

  6. Athanasius Posted on October 15, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    Intermittent fasting works. It worked for me and my friends and friends' friends when i promoted it. So much for "science" insider crap

  7. imene djenouhat Posted on October 15, 2019 at 7:55 pm

    Diets work PERIOD

  8. Marija Perkovic Posted on October 15, 2019 at 8:02 pm

    Am I only one that is confused with the colour of this olive oil

  9. Aron Guy Posted on October 15, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    What about itermitted fasting?

  10. Kawaii Faith Posted on October 15, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    Fat people like me don't starve when not eating I have too much fat for my body to use as energy supply.

  11. op a Posted on October 15, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    5:04 "it's almost impossibile to have a no carbohydrate diet. Fruits and vegetables are known as carbohydrates and we must get those for their nutrients". Ok, then I guess the Masai and Inuit are just part of our collective imagination.

  13. Lch Herrarte Posted on October 15, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    This just happened to me I over ate.

  14. Sam Lutfi Posted on October 15, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    actually a calorie is a calorie.. 200 calories of banana is same as 200 calories of sugar

  15. Victoria Osagie Posted on October 15, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    I can’t really believe all of this because I lost like 13 pounds in 2 weeks while doing keto and fasting.

  16. m0L3ify Posted on October 15, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Oh yikes, advising people eat cholesterol is not good advice. Our bodies make all the cholesterol we need. Eating any at all gives us too much and leads to chronic disease. Kind of hard to watch the rest when these nutritionists don't know something basic like that.

  17. Maybe Darling Posted on October 15, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    I think dietitian have a lot to answer for. I gained 30 kg on a low fat vegetarian diet. I tried every diet and only got fatter and fatter. I ended up with Leak gut and went back to eating meat, gave up gluten, sugar and added extra fat, (yummy butter and lots of it.) and fasted 2 day a week with soup. I’m 30 kg lighter after 20 years of trying very single diet ever invented this is the only one that worked. I don’t feel deprived because I know that I can now eat anything I want , even chocolate the other 5 days and I feel great. The internet is were I get my information from, so power to the people. We don’t have to follow and believe your fake information any more.

  18. Marie Laveau Posted on October 15, 2019 at 11:05 pm

    You don't need carbs. Your body can make them itself, and as far as fruit is concerned most of it has so much sugar that it jacks up insulin levels. Sugar is sugar, it's just that refined sugar is the worst. Grains cause inflammation. There is a process that the body goes into during intermittent fasting called autophagy that is extremely beneficial. It's time we stopped believing the FDA, they've kept us fat, sick, and poor long enough. Not to mention addicted to dangerous drugs. The health care industry and the pharmaceutical companies don't make money off healthy people. ✌️

  19. C S Posted on October 15, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    Lost 21 pounds doing intermittent fasting/water fasting. I cut carbs and sugar. No more HBP and I feel great.

  20. Nalvarez415 Posted on October 15, 2019 at 11:39 pm

    How much did they pay these people? Seriously, show evidences that this works. I am frustrated listening to these fools.

  21. A.M Bear Posted on October 16, 2019 at 12:15 am

  22. ILLFIGURE Posted on October 16, 2019 at 3:07 am

    Rule of thumb: The only carbs you need are from vegetables.

  23. spearsg Posted on October 16, 2019 at 4:51 am

    Bananas don't make YOU fat, and they don't make Freelee (the banana diet girl) fat. But they do make me fat. (Yes, of course I'm doing it wrong, lol (whatever, meh, pfffft))

  24. spearsg Posted on October 16, 2019 at 4:55 am

    I think we all need to come to terms with the possibility that one size might not fit all. That your myth is my truth, and so on. This seems simple and it is; but it is Not Easy. Because, once we are beholden to an ideology, we might kill to defend it. That's the human mind and emotions — that's how it is — like a crab. Gets a hold of a thing and won't let go. If you can get out of yourself and look at life form over here, let's say, it makes worlds of difference.

  25. Adi Eka Posted on October 16, 2019 at 5:43 am

    What about intermittent fasting?

  26. CherieAndAngel Posted on October 16, 2019 at 6:01 am

    Lmao tell that thing about diet soda to a person with an eating disorder or "banana calories aren't the same as cookie calories" yes they are. I mean yes a cookie will leave you craving more and make you feel shitty but it doesn't matter if you eat 500 cals worth of cookies or 500 calories worth of banana a day you still gonna lose weight

  27. D Shaikh Posted on October 16, 2019 at 6:41 am

    I'm not a dietitian but a medical scientist and current medical student. If you want to know how to eat right and live healthy then follow the dietitian rujuta diwekar. She explains everything and is makes sense. Follows all of the stuff that is explained here. But it's according to ancient Indian traditions and she teaches how to each according to your heritage. Please do follow her you will benefit so much.

  28. Elchicolastic Cordova Posted on October 16, 2019 at 7:22 am

    Everyone in the comments including me have been doing the contrary of what you said and had better results

  29. Auguste Arasi Posted on October 16, 2019 at 8:23 am

    So like, what do i need to do to lose weight

  30. reddead2067 Posted on October 16, 2019 at 8:38 am

    I have lost about 7kg (15 pounds) on intermittent fasting / OMAD

  31. Lalita P Posted on October 16, 2019 at 9:07 am

    stop spreading fake information

  32. Ilovesesshomaru sama Posted on October 16, 2019 at 9:23 am

    I just intermittently fast. Works for me and I can eat what I want within a limit. It works because I lose weight and my hgh spikes. Spiking that hormone helps you speed your metabolism which is the point of intermittent fasting

  33. Xihe Ang Posted on October 16, 2019 at 9:46 am

    But I am taking Keto diet and it is working for me. I have gone from 109kg to 87kg and aiming for 65kg which is the ideal weight for my BMI. It is been 3 and a half months now. Keto diet is not about going on 0 carbs but low carbs. One thing I didn't follow on Keto diet is high fat.

  34. Spooky Sammy Posted on October 16, 2019 at 10:06 am

    I need breakfast. I'm always hungry in the morning.

  35. Mette Thomsen Posted on October 16, 2019 at 12:49 pm

    The bread is why I bake my own every two weeks. I use whole grain flour and by eating it in the mornings, I am not hungry by 9-9.30

  36. Karen Daniel Posted on October 16, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    I maintained a healthy diet and wait for years, until I started Rideshare driving overnight and the only food options were crap.

    I made a decision to tweak my diet back to what it was. Truthfully, most of the crap food makes me feel like just that. I just spent 18 months in denial about why I felt so bad.

    Adding back in healthy stuff was easy. I LOVE fruits and vegetables. Now, when I'm hungry at 3am, I remind myself that Sonic tots-a favorite-make me queasy. They're not worth it. I'm now working on removing added sugar from my diet. I started by going back to natural not butters with only nuts (sometimes salt) and eating fruit instead of fruit spread. I also gave up a favorite brand of "healthier" fig bars in favor of Larabars, which use dates for sweetness and have very few ingredients. It's the healthiest shelf stable option I can find for driving, and dates are a whole food sweetener with fiber and minerals. I already eat locally made whole grain bread, so I'm just trying these slow tweaks instead of dieting. My weight loss is slow, but I know I won't gain it back because I can tell how much better I feel. I don't want to feel that crappy again.

    Pay attention to your body.

    I couldn't get past bananas don't make you fat.

  39. Tiffany Vega Posted on October 16, 2019 at 5:53 pm

    This comment section is literally full of idiots lol.. yes you lose weight if you intermittently fast but you lose it in the worse way possible so your body gets unhealthy because of it. You’re literally depriving the body of its metabolic regulation. Just because you’re losing weight, it doesn’t make you healthy! Same as just because you’re skinny, doesn’t mean you’re healthy!

    Lmao I don’t believe dietitians they told me I wouldn’t lose weight from not eating but here I am 50 pounds down 😳

    Bananas can raise your blood sugar just as much as candy bars. Yes they have more nutrients but they are still a poor choice for diabetics

  43. Russ Calligan Posted on October 16, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Most of this seemed factual. But i /m fasting does have science backing it . saying it does help, and is good for you. and has numerous health benefits … Reduces insulin resistance etc.

    As a Registered/Licensed Dietitian, can I get a HALLELUJAH!!!

    It's unfortunate that the Dunning Kruger Syndrome affects us human beings… that being said, just because you lost weight and/or just because you are wealthy enough to restrict certain foods/food groups/pay for gyms and/or trainers, does not make one an expert. I'm glad people have lost weight doing various modifications (food, exercise, etc), that doesn't mean you are educated and that doesn't mean you get to educate others. One's anecdotes do not equal causation.

    I especially love that Nikita, RD discussed the various factors (including SOCIOECONOMIC) that lead to disparities in health and types of food consumption. It's time to stop marginalizing any body (doesn't matter if you are "skinny" or "fat".)

    If there was a "perfect" diet (while the diets of persons in the Blue Zones are great–it's not the end all–be all; and I say this as someone who loves the Mediterrean Diet, in this particular instance), we would be changing nutrition science. Sadly, there is no one perfect diet. (Though I am very interested to see where NutriGenomics/Nutrigenetics ends up going!)

    I can't wait to see the trolls, cries of "CARBS ARE EVIL!", statements of "Dietitians/Nutritionists are corrupt/money grubbers/etc", and anything from those who refuse to look at the legit science (like from an actual peer-reviewed journal, not some blog found on Google/a Pay-For-Play journal) and only count anecdotal statements found on the secret Keto group on FB.
    I went into Dietetics because of my quest for knowledge, love of science/research (loved my Graduate Research classes!), heal my local community through diet and exercise (currently in Outpatient care), and dispel all the myths that were constantly floating around my public arts high school (of which many were from my fellow dancers and teachers).

    If I wanted to make money, I would have gone into business (and possibly have thrown ethics and morals out the window in the desire for the all mighty greenback) however, that's not my thing.

    Let the mud-slinging begin! (because you know the cries of: "i dID mAh reSurCH!" will be here soon 😉 )

    i followed all of these “myths” and lost weight and felt tons better. imo you just have to experiment with what makes you feel good

  48. Jade Cook Posted on October 16, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    Ok, y'all in the comments are stupid and brain washed. The point they're trying to prove is none of these things the media says, carbs, fats, sugars, etc aren't bad as long as you are consuming the nutrients you need.. You know vitamins and minerals that you idiots lack? Like, omg..

  49. Kevin Scott Posted on October 17, 2019 at 1:12 am

    Wow, they got it all wrong.

  50. Adriamarie Vigg Posted on October 17, 2019 at 2:29 am

    Say what you will but I know what cured me of my pre-diabetes, gave me more energy and allowed me to finally lose weight after trying for years. Intermittent Fasting saved my life. So cling to your archaic way of thinking, and continue to mis lead ppl while the country gets fatter and more unhealthy

    That's come one of my favorite diet


  55. Paola Rosario Posted on October 17, 2019 at 10:33 am

    I have an issue with breakfast: I can’t eat it. When I wake up really, really early (let’s say 4 to 6am) I feel like my stomach is nonexistent. I am not hungry at all and if I do try to eat something (for the sake of “breakfast is the most important meal”) I get sick. It doesn’t matter what I eat, I get sick. It’s like my stomach cannot process food so early in the day (I can drink liquids tho). So of course I have to skip it and then when lunch comes around, I am double hungry.

  56. Abnormal Player Posted on October 17, 2019 at 12:48 pm

    Ummm… what if i'm overhydrated?
    Cuz i usually drink a glass of water every youtube video
    And only eat twice a day
    Cuz i'm not really doing a whole lot so i don't need a lot of energy

  57. Alex Swansbrough Posted on October 17, 2019 at 2:35 pm

  58. 7MonarC Posted on October 17, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    I lost 9-10 kg by following intermittent fasting, so…

  59. 7MonarC Posted on October 17, 2019 at 3:19 pm

    Of course dietitians would go against intermittent fasting, they're afraid there'd be less consultations.

  60. Radu Rus Posted on October 17, 2019 at 5:12 pm

    one simple question…………if your diet works, then why are you fat ?

  61. BryanPortable Posted on October 17, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    God, I hate videos like this. Listen, some of these facts they are spouting are shared across the board but there are some aspects where there is a huge amount of debate going on. What science insider has done is cherrypicked dietitians who share common beliefs. They are making it seem like this is all cut and dry when in fact there is a lot of debate going on in the field about whether this or that is good for you. There are peer-reviewed studies that these dietitians are ignoring because they don't agree with them. For the love of God, when you know something is high debated atleast admit to it.

  62. Z Z Posted on October 17, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    Dietitians/nutritionists are mostly quacks. Even the ones who are properly informed and stay up to date with current literature in the field are working with inconclusive data to begin with (nutrition science is very poorly understood). For example, the idea that you shouldn't skip meals is old news and advice peddled in the 90's and 2000's. Plenty of people are using intermittent fasting to simplify their dieting approach and to help restrict calories (whether or not the fasting itself helps burn fat is untrue at worst and inconclusive at best).

    Filling up on salad is a great tip. I’ve been doing that every time I go out and it cuts down on the amount of choleric intake.

  66. Carlijn V Posted on October 18, 2019 at 10:12 am

    Ah yes, drinking water provides so many nutrients… like water

  67. Brutta Posted on October 18, 2019 at 2:40 pm

    Ok, wow the people that are talking are actually idiots. If you want to lose weight then just fast and your body will start using your reservoir of fat. Or if you don't want to do that don't eat carbs and sugar. FAT IS NOT BAD FOR YOU SUGAR IS GET THAT RIGHT. For example whole fat milk is way healthier for you because it has fat and little sugar, but with no fat milk the companies got to replace all that loss of fat with something sweet like sugar to make it taste better. Also eat no processed food junk those chemicals they put in the food are so bad for you.

  68. Marin Posted on October 18, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    I love how these modern dietitians keep talking about physics (calories) as if we were combustion engines. So wrong, so sad and so distant from biology. I guess it's not their fault, they were taught this way.

  69. SugaSweet Posted on October 18, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    Glutens not good for you. It causes mild systemic inflammation regardless of intolerances. It might not cause weight gain but don't advocate for it!

  70. Ann Otter Posted on October 18, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    IF screwed me so hungry after that I'd overeat. I didn't get used to it. And I was hangry every morning.

  79. Keenan JD Posted on October 19, 2019 at 4:14 am

    Lost me with the fasting bit. Do your research. Much more to fasting than calorie restriction. PLENTY of studies on this now.

  80. noReactionZ Posted on October 19, 2019 at 6:38 am

    They say keto doesn't help you lose fat, and then say diets are not sustainable. Lmfaoooo what a joke
    A fat based diet will keep you full and crave less because you are full.

  81. Gordon Harrington Posted on October 19, 2019 at 7:44 am

    I don’t know why people say in comments “this video doesn’t tell you how to lose weight just how to stay healthy”.
    I though the whole point of this video was to debunk weight loss myths not to tell you “do this and you will lose weight”
    You can get all the advice in the world but if you over eat calories it won’t matter, also fasting is great for self healing of the body and it doesn’t magically make you lose weight. It just makes eating less much easier

  82. may Stuart Posted on October 19, 2019 at 8:06 am

    They only focused on one of the dietitians😂 but i’m glad cause she really knew what she was talking about

  83. zinagrillo1 Posted on October 19, 2019 at 12:25 pm

    I intermittent fast and I have not only lost weight in a healthy and sustainable manner, but have more energy than I have ever before in my life. My complexion looks amazing and I feel light and lean and I haven't felt this agile and energetic since I was a child. Skipping meals is not bad – its uncomfortable not bad for you. i struggled with weight loss and energy when I eating multiple healthy meals in one day and didnt give my body a change to use the fat store or clean itself out. Check this out –

  84. Isa Arellano Posted on October 19, 2019 at 12:49 pm

    Just because you fast doesn't mean you restrict your calories, replacing them is essential (Example: Only a spoon of olive oil has 128 calories so adding it can help you) and also it works if you eat good quality food, not trash. Putting your body through stress depends on what fuel you give it.

  85. Rachielee Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    We judge people. And when your socially rejected, and when you know you have, you become scared and over think. Your brain tries to think of ways to be better, or get better. This is when the feeling of loneliness comes in, and it becomes a danger to your health. Our ancestors were always together, and would work together, so when you would be simply "left behind" you become weak, and scared of what people think of you. It is simple human nature for us to trick ourselves into such habits like eating disorders. It is your brains way of trying to be better, trying to impress, trying to tell others that your here and want to be supported. When you become depressed and thinking of suicide, that is your brain thinking that your not needed anymore, that no body wants you. Simple Human nature.

  86. Priyanka Bhowmick Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:29 pm

    Isn't intermittent diet a proven scientific thing!!??

  87. Fronz Le Fleur Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    As someone who is eating like someone with anorexia,(Don’t ask). It is definitely true. You will not loose weight if you eat absolutely nothing, you must eat at least something so your body can fluctuate.
