Keto Diet Results for Weight Loss

“Keto Diet Results for Weight Loss” The carbohydrate-insulin
model of obesity, the underlying theory that ketogenic diets have some sort of metabolic advantage, has been experimentally falsified. The keto diet’s proponents’ own
studies showed the exact opposite: ketogenic diets actually put
you at a metabolic disadvantage and slow the loss of body fat. How much does fat loss slow
down on a low-carb diet? If you cut about 800 calories a
day of carbohydrates from your diet you lose 53 grams of body fat a day, but if you cut the same
number of fat calories, you lose 89 grams a day. Same number of calories,
but nine pats of butter worth of extra fat melting off your body every day on a low-fat diet,
compared to the low-carb diet. Same number of calories, but
about 80 percent more fat loss when you cut down on
fat instead of carbs. Here’s the graph. Cut 800 calories from
your diet by cutting carbs and you do lose body fat, but cut out the same number
of calories by cutting fat, and you lose even more body fat—
80 percent more body fat lost. The title of the
study speaks for itself: “Calorie for Calorie,
Dietary Fat Restriction Results in More Body Fat Loss
than Carbohydrate Restriction in People with Obesity.” But just looking at the
bathroom scale, though, would mislead you into
thinking the opposite. After six days on the low-carb diet,
study subjects lost four pounds. On the low-fat diet they
lost less than three. So, step on the scale
and it looks like the low-carb diet
wins hands down. So, you can see why low-carb
diets are so popular. But what was happening inside
their bodies tells the real story. The low-carb group was
losing mostly lean mass— water and protein. This loss of water weight helps
explain why low-carb diets have been such “cash cows” for
publishers over the last 150 years. That’s their secret. As one weight loss expert noted, “Rapid water loss is the
$33-billion diet gimmick.” When you eat carbohydrates,
your body bulks your muscles up with glycogen for quick energy. Eat a high carbohydrate
diet for three days and you may add about
three pounds of muscle mass onto your arms and legs. Those glycogen stores drain
away though on a low-carb diet and pull water out with it. And the ketones also need to
be flushed out of the kidneys, pulling out even more water. On the scale, that can
manifest as four more pounds coming off within 10 days, but that all can be
accounted for in water loss. The bottom line: keto diets
just don’t hold water. But the thrill of seeing the
pounds come off so quickly on the scale keeps
many coming back. When the diet fails, the
dieters often blame themselves. But the intoxication of that
initial rapid weight loss may tempt them back, like getting
drunk again after forgetting how terrible the last hangover was. This has been dubbed
the “false hope syndrome.” The diet industry thrives
off of repeat customers, something low-carb diets were built for, given that rapid initial water loss. But what we care about is body fat. In six days, the low-fat diet extracted a total of 80% more fat from
the body than the low-carb diet. And it’s not just one study. If you look at all the
controlled feeding trials where researchers compared
low-carb diets to low-fat diets, swapping the same
number of carb calories for fat calories or vice versa. If a calorie is just a
calorie then all the studies should have crossed that
zero line in the middle, and indeed six did. One study showed more fat
loss on a low-carb diet, but every other study
favored the low-fat diet, more loss of body fat eating
the same number of calories. Put all the studies together…
and we’re talking 16 grams more daily body fat loss
on the low-fat diets, that’s four more pats of butter melting off your body
on a daily basis. Less fat in the mouth,
means less fat on the hips, even taking in the
same number of calories.

    This is the 3rd installment of my keto series. In case you missed the first two, see Is Keto an Effective Cancer-Fighting Diet? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-Keto-an-Effective-Cancer-Fighting-Diet/) and Keto Diet Theory Put to the Test (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/keto-diet-theory-put-to-the-test/)

  2. matt wodziak Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    So thousands people that lose 50+ lbs on a keto diet is gimmick because it’s all water loss? You sir are a fraud. Don’t cherrypick shit studies and highlight single sentences to prove a point.

  3. MegaVegan Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    The Keto diet has become synonymous with ‘non-scale victory’ and for good reason.

  4. Nicecore Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    Why do people think eating tons of FAT will make you THIN anyway! IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE!!!

  5. Dennis Lim Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    This study isn't even of a Keto Diet. It's a low carb study… A keto diet is low carb, HIGH FAT! Let's look at how Thomas DeLauer, Mike Mutzel and Dr Berg look like. I know who my choice to listen to is. Lost all respect for Dr Greger for presenting limited data on Keto and straight to shooting it down.

  6. adiohead Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:48 pm

    Jimmy Moore is all you need as proof

  7. Amit from Israel Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:58 pm

    what a BS ! also your vegan diet is a low carb diet ! you are also promoting more plant-based foods, quite similar to the Keto, with no sugar, no empty carbs, the only difference is that you say "eat avocado as fat source" and they say "you can also eat eggs and fish"…you are so obsessed against anyone who allows meat and eggs, that you have gone crazy already

  8. Emir Sandoval Posted on September 4, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    What about intermittent fasting?

  9. Carly Franklin Posted on September 4, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    Fat = fat plain and simple. Our brain has this thing called memory, and it doesn’t even think twice about telling the fat we put in our mouth where to go.
    Brain: go to the fat spot
    Fat: hips belly thighs and butt
    Plain and simple. Thankful for this information bc for the first time after pregnancy I am losing weight, bc I cut the oils including animals!!

  10. Jay and Vicky Posted on September 4, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    Another great video of dropping science on the keto crowd. Why do I feel like I am watching a captivating TV series just waiting for your next episode to drop? I fist pump every time you upload.

    Keto is an unhealthy fad diet. Hopefully eating plant based will continue to become popular.

  16. Vegan Buddhist Posted on September 4, 2019 at 3:31 pm

    I lost 90+ on a WFPB diet and I feel amazing, in the earlier days I would eat bakery bread before bed and still lost weight lol

  17. Andrew Clancy Posted on September 4, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    If you want to do something meaningful, turn your comment section rage toward Kraft, General Mills, McDonald's, PepsiCo, etc. Convenience and fast foods are the beginning and end of this whole diet mess. Without disease-causing "foods" engineered to addict you and relieve you of your money, all these diet questions are academic.

    I don't know.. I've lost 50 lbs without going to gym with less cooking and better food.
    I'm sticking with the diet because I also feel better and have more energy..
    Everyone is different

  20. Miha Skorjanc Posted on September 4, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    Great video. Somebody actually has to look at ALL the science put together.

    Could you please do a video on healthy weight gain?!

  22. pillow scream Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    I am praying this within my connections for years. everyone is focused on the (wrong) numbers. the scale doesn't mean anything. unless it's a bodyfat scale which are totally off anyway. better get a big mirror instead.

  23. sooooooooDark Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    keto'esque macros may suck
    but low fat (<20%) is like the 2nd worst
    no morning wood, u look like school girl (crappy hormones) and are always bloated and constantly think about food – nice.fucking.meme diet

  24. sooooooooDark Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    im not saying that high fat (>50% total energy) is healthiest but its very good for weight loss
    fat is just so satiating, never gonna overeat, bmi will never be over 30 (i know <25 is best but hey)
    and this is even without taking into account "whole foodism" – cuz if u dont eat a whole food diet then ull never be satiated on high carb – look at all the vegetarians who eat high GI junk foods – all super fat fucks
    even whole plant carb sources rnt particularly satiating, only way to not overeat them is actively count and restrict calories…but thats cheating

  25. arrestedshrimp Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    So what your telling me is that every anectdodal claim from keto people that they lost weight is just a placebo? Look im all for plant based but your science must be off. The way you’re looking at the science is telling you logically that people can’t lose weight on the keto diet. But people are still losing weight on the keto diet regardless of what your science is saying. It’s like you’re looking at individual factors that in your mind would describe how someone could not lose weight on the keto diet but when you look at the end result you see people losing weight on the keto diet, that makes you think for a second

  26. rsully21 Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Ever time I learn more, I have more questions.

    At 3:54 the video outlines 20 studies that compared the results of a low-fat diet vs. a low-card diet. What was the quality of the studies? For example, were these self-reported participants?
    Why would the body burn muscle, not fat? Why does the body jettison water?

  27. Doug bananaboy Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    The earth is burning

  28. iGrrli 4Life Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    I would LOVE to see a debate between Dr Greger and Dr Berg or Thomas Delauer or [insert keto zealot here]. It's too easy to cherry pick the studies that support one's beliefs. Are there meta-analyses out there that give us the answer one way or the other?

  29. God Emperor Meow Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    Now time to explain this to my keto friends who keep wanting me to eat chicken.

  30. Faviola Pérez Posted on September 4, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    Excellent !

  31. fire7side Posted on September 4, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    I tried keto and it was just like that. Lost 20 lbs total in about a month, but then I leveled while basically eating the same things. I switched to a low fat, whole food diet and starting losing weight again until I had lost about 60 lbs total. Keto works for some people because the protein helps them feel fuller, but you can eat protein on a low fat diet and the fiber also helps keep us feeling fuller.

  32. Stumptown Woodworks Posted on September 4, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    It's a shame we still have people ringing the Keto bell when science showing the opposite exists. Just shows people will search out what they want to believe in order to justify their own bad habits. Thank you so much for all you do, I know need to find a way to gracefully share these with my two very good…very keto friends.

  33. ggzh a Argue With Everyone Posted on September 4, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    This video misses one important part: lower food intake. Keto promoters say that there is a weight loss advantage on keto because people eat less.
    I do not know any study on that, does someone know if that is true? Does keto lower your appetite?
    And if so, does it make you lose more weight than WFPB?

  34. You're Right but... Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:02 pm

    This is great video!
    How about High Protein instead of High Fat or High Carbs?

    Are there clinical trials that you've reviewed?

  35. Chris Taylor Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    I have lost 40 lbs over 7 months on a diet that eliminated sugar, processed foods, seed oils and high carbs (grains of all sorts). Generally, my meals consist of 3 types of veggies (that grow above ground) and some form of protein (either meat or fish). After dinner snack is usually 85% dark chocolate and a variety of different nuts. My triglycerides have gone from 146 to 59; LDL particle number is 900; TG / HDL Ratio is .66 and C-Reactive Protein is .44. I think that it is quite clear that the real enemy of human health is processed foods/oils, sugar, too little exercise and too little sleep. A well-formulated vegan/vegetarian diet and a well-formulated low-carb diet are comparable in result.

  36. TheWodeh Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    Most of the Keto people I have come across are low IQ prideful sheep.

  37. Charlie 502 Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:15 pm

    What about the keto dieters who lost 30,40,50lbs and more? All water? I don't think so

  38. Chris Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    Well, i am on Keto for 7 months now, my fat dropped from 24 to about 11%, my bodycomposition is awesome, i have power in the gym and i feel good. A conclusion after 6 days ! Thats BS.

  39. Meatball Sub Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    Low quality work here. The low-carb diet in the first study is far from ketogenic. Plus the study was short term, ignoring adaptation periods. And it's not pathological to lose water and glycogen at the start of a ketogenic diet. Fat stores aren't heavily utilized until glycogen is depleted. A longer term study could have shown that.

  40. Peter Rabitt Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:23 pm

    As a registered dietitian, I see an endless flow of people who've suffered "Biggest Loser Syndrome" on a Keto diet; in other words they lose lots of weight very fast, but regain it all and more, due to their loss of lean mass, and metabolic disruption. Keto is almost always a long-term disaster for weight control, and the very few that keep the weight off are the ones noted by Keto proponents….survivorship bias keeps this fad alive.

  41. Scott Gabelman Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    All you keto debunkers go to dr. Berg Channel and see all the hundreds of thousands of people who have lost millions of pounds effortlessly!

  42. The Social Blade Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    Can you talk about the Lymphatic system and how it plays a roll in removing waste from the bod. Dr. Robert Morse talks a lot about this. Thanks

  43. Scott Gabelman Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    This video will be good in 1972 promoting a low fat diet versus a low carbohydrate diet losing more weight on a low fat diet!
    What are the dates of the studies that you're Trying to educate us with. Cherry picking articles from 1944 to 1995. There's much better research on the keto diet for weight loss then you're showing us.

  44. Carbage Man Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    Recycled bullshit. There's not a fortune being made on keto, and your rigged studies don't give you any credibility. Fake meat and other vegan frankenfoods, on the other hand….

    Keto/IF works for me and everyone I know who's gone low-carb, so your lies don't work anymore. It doesn't matter how many times you repeat the lie, Mr. Goebbels, it doesn't become true. Calories don't mean anything to the human body. You cut down on carbs, you eat less and retain more nutrients. It's about the hormones, not "calories." If it's about "weight loss," then it enables easy fasting.

  45. Bob Schmob Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Address the scientifically proven benefits of a short term vegan ketogenic diet.

  46. Steve Baker Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    I wish more people would invest some time in learning about the legitimate research rather than jumping on that $33 billion gimmick train you mentioned. In my time, I've learned that health and vitality is really very simple. It's all of the fad diets and health crazes that complicate things. The almighty dollar!

  47. blackstatis 0 Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:48 pm

  48. Edward Bogusz Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:49 pm

    Not every diet is for everyone, years of 60+ pounds said good riddens to that started with waterloss that made me simply feel better moving. My Cardiologist is on keto and considers white fat a parasite on my systems. I'll stick with what works even though I not familiar with medical terms like "keto-thighs" maybe because I'm gaining muscle at 64. Maybe there is more than one answer to weight loss?

  49. Shari T Posted on September 4, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    …and there you have it! Thanks for doing the research and posting!!

  50. Aurora Jones Posted on September 4, 2019 at 7:41 pm

    Dirty Keto is just bad. Ive been saying you need to eat NUTRIENT dense foods and stay away from the fat even on KETO. Keep your calories LOW and i mean low like 1300/day and keep your damn macros in check that means NOT A LOT OF FAT. Ppl just think you can eat all the fat you want as long as its on the program which is total BS. You need to monitor what you intake and make sure what you are eating is dense in nutrients because your not getting a lot so they need to be excellent quality. I look and feel fantastic from it but like i say im not doing dirty keto.

  51. MegaVegan Posted on September 4, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Let's not forget how this fad diet also spawned all the 'Keto Coaches'.

  52. Anonsan Posted on September 4, 2019 at 8:08 pm

    I hope this truth continues because I'm unable to go full keto after multiple attempts.

  53. Tony Olson Posted on September 4, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    LMAO!!! Gregor is basing his results on a 6 day test!!! OMG, for some people, it takes that long just to get into Ketosis! But the real kicker, is that it takes 30 days to 12 weeks to get fat adapted when on a Keto diet, and that’s when the real power of Ketosis helps you!

    And of course you lose water on a Keto diet. That’s because glycogen attaches to several water molecules, and so when you cut back on carbs, you burn up your glycogen and shred water. But that doesn’t mean your losing muscle mass, your just losing the water that was in your muscles! That’s why body builders “carb-up” the day before a competition. But did Gregor explain this? Of course not! But AFTER you lose your water (which oddly takes about 6 days, which was the length of this flawed test), you then lose fat!!

    If you look at any long term Keto diet study, they all show that Gregor is clearly wrong (see below). Once again, Gregor shows he knows how to cherry pick flawed studies, to appease his potato head cult followers.


    Does Thomas DeLauer, a long time Keto diet advocate on YouTube look like he has a problem with muscle mass (see below):

  62. Copisetic 1 Posted on September 4, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    What I have found out in years of study and blood analysis on my body is that fat does not cause arterial inflammation like carbs and sugar. After four heart attacks I quit allopathic western medicine, not one MD talked to me about food and diet, I am now a trained medicinal herbalist and diet/food researcher. My knowledge way exceeds the doctors I used to go to, Dr. Greger is the only one that’s even close. My world revolves around arterial inflammation and what foods/herbal extracts suppress it and what foods cause it. Even the vegetable world has foods I won’t eat.

    This really explains the drastic change of appearance for Jordan Peterson, who has eaten an all beef and salt diet for well over a year now. He has lost a lot of weight, that’s for sure. However, I wouldn’t say that he looks very healthy as he looks like he’s lost a lot of muscle..

  65. Mark Currie Posted on September 4, 2019 at 11:12 pm

    Perhaps people have success on low-carb because they feel satisfied eating less calories? I think people like low-carb diets because they are easy to follow, it’s easier to eat less because you feel satisfied sooner. Any studies on the feeling of fullness on low-carb diets vs non low-carb diets?

  66. FlintSparked Posted on September 4, 2019 at 11:32 pm

    I tried the keto thing before I was better educated on how to verify legitimate research. Let me tell you, even when I was increasing my fiber intake and staying keto, I was constantly wiping my butthole. All that extra fat was doing something awful inside my guts. I would go on runs and my butt itched. It was horrifying.

    Dr. Greger not afraid to dispel some myths

  70. R A Posted on September 5, 2019 at 1:06 am

    The main thing about the keto diet is that you eat fewer calories because you're satiated quicker. Think about your personal experience. How easy is it to overeat pizza or cereal or cookies? It's much more difficult to eat the same number of calories of meat, eggs, avocado, etc. Dr. Greger doesn't even go into this fact AT ALL. Hopefully he'll address it in a future video. It definitely feels like he's cherry picking the studies for this video.

    Personally, I'm still on the fence which way to go – ketosis vs WFPB w/ fish, but leaning towards WFPB. It seems like every person on YouTube is biased and cherry picks their info….so frustrating. Are there any unbiased and open nutritionists out there?

  71. Yoso Posted on September 5, 2019 at 1:13 am

    You do keto for a couple of weeks and then limit the carbs you bring back into your diet you idiots! Keep the carbs under 150 grams a day as lifestyle. I average about 100 if that and am happy and healthy. And grateful as all hell that I kept an ear open to opposing views all along. Go ahead and eat a bunch of fruit and grains for all I care; want to talk about a diet that doesn’t last long for most.

  72. freerps Posted on September 5, 2019 at 1:30 am

    Wow apparently i lost 100+ lbs in the last 2 years the "wrong" way (keto)! I should go back to my old low-fat diet where I was getting fatter and fatter for 15 years. Thanks doc!

  73. Steve Greene Posted on September 5, 2019 at 1:37 am

    Diet regimens should ideally be long-term lifelong strategies for remaining healthy and living long, not for overweight fat and obese people to temporarily invoke just for the purpose of dropping some quick body poundage. People are easily tricked, following the hyped commercials and media intent on shrinking their wallets. This presentation today reinforces what I have intuitively thought all along, and it's great to see valid studies finally putting this modern myth to bed for good. It will be quite fascinating to see if and how the Keto community will respond to your talk Michael. The Keto industry is huge these days, with too much money, reputation, and pride invested to simply roll over and admit they were on the wrong course, misleading people all along, whether by intent or innocent ignorance of the facts. Let's see what happens now!

    All I know is going on a keto diet makes it easier for me to eat less and not feel hungry. No other diet has ever helped me do that. 1500 calories a day, fasting long periods, not feeling terrible after eating tons of carbs. the study needs to measure the human component not just the theory of increased fat loss based on calories on vs calories out.

  77. eddy v Posted on September 5, 2019 at 2:43 am

    I wonder if this has something to do with it being "low carb" and not "0 carb". Pretty much only fat, non statchy vegetables and low protein. Combined with fasting and refeeding days. I wonder if that would have different results

  78. muhubo bulhan Posted on September 5, 2019 at 3:10 am

    I never regret for doing Keto diet. I eat ones a day for healthy food most what I enjoy. I am a witness for Keto that I became a very healthy and energetic when I quit all sugar and sugary good. It’s not about losing fat it’s about getting rid of all the pain and inflammation and the toxics that caused the unhealthy food we eat. Keto is clean and healthy if we understand not to eat everything that you hear about doctors or social media. Listen to your body and you will know what you body needs. Thank you

    Losing mostly water is standards for anyone moving away from a high carb, insulin-spiking diet , so that is not a strike against KETO. I'm not a fan of KETO, but it works for a lot people. My own personal experiment with low-carb dieting and observing so many success stories with friends and family easily trumps the study you use.

    I'm mostly vegan. Please do a video on oxalates, and the symptoms they can cause BESIDES kidney stones. I don't get kidney stones, but I find when I stay away from high oxalates foods (nuts, most grains, potatoes, spinach, chocolate etc), get my carbs from fruit meals (like banana smoothies), and make sure to get plenty of greens like romaine lettuce, bok choy, and bell peppers, my skin gets so clear and smooth and my energy is so much better. Also my urine starts to smell "rich" when I eat too many oxalates. Another thing I keep in mind is calcium to phosphorous ratios and try and eat 10 whole oranges as a meal most days (not juiced), that along with the greens, makes sure I get ideal calcium to phosphorus ratios 1:1 or better. Can you please talk about this also? From what I understand, too many peoples diets are way too high in phosphorous compared to calcium… which inhibits calcium absorption.

    Did they measure that the people participated in the test actually were in a state of ketosis? Seems to me reducing kalories by 800, does not necessarily does that.

    Dr Greger vs Dr Berg on Joe Rogan 🙏

    When you realise that Humans have been fasting for thousands of years, every info bashing ketosis becomes irrelevant.

    Natural bodybuilders (even vegan bodybuilders) cut down on carbs when they're trying to cut, and eat more carbs when they're trying to bulk. Natural bodybuilders who are in a cutting phase before a contest will substantially lower their carb intake. And they can get down to 1 digit body fat percentage only by cutting their carb intake. You could never reach sub-10 percent bodyfat in a high carb diet. So it's not true that a low carb diet make you lose only the water weight.

    You can say this, but i see alot of YouTubers talking about a bad experience with Veganism(just keep that in mind). Plant based diet consumers have the same morbidity and mortality rates as regular diet consumers with regards to cancer and Alzheimer's you actually have a video on this…but this only happens if they do it wrongly, & in that video you actually highlight the importance of Vitamin B12 supplementation and ground flaxseed in a plant based diet. In the same way, Keto diet consumers will get negative results if they do Keto the wrong way. I'd be more glad if you did another video on how to do Keto the right way, rather than criticizing it in video after video yet there are countless testimonies of people who've been on it for years and are healthy. Thank you.

    Dr Greger and NutritionFacts, as always you rock!

  87. Michael Lewis Posted on September 5, 2019 at 7:35 am

    After years of researching nutrition it is both obvious and logical to me that a whole food plant based diet is the optimal if following the daily dozen provided by Dr. Greger. I also believe that fasting is an amazing health promoting lifestyle and i would love to see Dr. Greger cover these many studies and bring us his professional insight

    Sorry, but this is incorrect. For me, at least, low carb has been healthy.
