Keto Diet Theory Put to the Test


“Keto Diet Theory Put to the Test” When you don’t eat
enough carbohydrates, you force your body to burn more fat. However, this rise in fat burning is often misconstrued as a greater rate of net fat mass
reduction on the body. But that ignores the fact
that on a ketogenic diet your fat intake shoots up as well. The question is what happens to
your overall body fat balance. You can’t empty a tub
by widening the drain if you’re cranking up the
faucet at the same time. Low-carb advocates
had a theory, though, the so-called carbohydrate–
insulin model of obesity. Proponents of low-carb diets,
whether a ketogenic diet or a more relaxed form of
carbohydrate restriction, suggested that the
decreased insulin secretion would lead to less fat storage; and so, even if you
were eating more fat, less of it would
stick to your frame. So, we’d be burning
more and storing less, the perfect combination for fat loss— or so the theory went. To their credit, instead of
just speculating about it, they decided to put
it to the test. Gary Taubes formed the
Nutrition Science Initiative to sponsor research to validate
the carbohydrate–insulin model. He’s the journalist who
wrote the controversial 2002 New York Times Magazine piece “What if It’s All
Been a Big Fat Lie,” which attempted to turn
nutrition dogma on its head by arguing in favor
of the Atkins diet with its bunless bacon cheeseburgers based on the carbohydrate–
insulin model. (Much of Nina Teicholz’s
book, “The Big Fat Surprise”, is simply recycled from
Taubes’s earlier work). In response, some of the very
researchers Taubes cited to support his thesis accused him
of twisting their words. “The article was incredibly
misleading,” one said, “I was horrified.” “He took this weird little idea and blew it up, and people
believed him,” said another. “What a disaster.” It doesn’t matter what people say, though. All that matters is the science. Taubes attracted $40 million
in committed funding for his Nutrition Science
Initiative to prove to the world, you could lose more body
fat on a ketogenic diet. They contracted
noted NIH researcher Kevin Hall to perform the study. Seventeen overweight men
were effectively locked in what’s called a metabolic
ward for two months to allow researchers total
control over their diets. For the first month they were placed on a typical high carbohydrate diet (50% carbohydrate; 35% fat; 15% protein), and then they were switched
to a low-carb ketogenic diet (only 5% of calories from carbohydrate;
80% fat) for the second month. Both diets had the same
number of daily calories. So, if a calorie is a calorie
when it comes to weight loss, then there should be no
difference in body fat loss on the regular diet
versus the ketogenic diet. If Taubes was right, though, if fat calories were
somehow less fattening, then body fat loss would
become accelerated. What happened instead,
in the very study funded by the Nutrition Science Initiative, was that body fat loss
slowed upon switching to the ketogenic diet. Wait…why do people
think the keto diet works if it’s actually slowing fat loss? Well, if you just looked at the
readings on their bathroom scales, the ketogenic diet would
seem like a smashing success. They went from losing
less than a pound a week on the regular diet in the two
weeks before they switched to losing three and a half
pounds within seven days after the switch to the ketogenic diet. But what was happening
inside their bodies told a totally different story. Their rate of body fat loss
was slowed by more than half. So, most of what they were
losing was just water weight. (The reason they started burning
less fat on a ketogenic diet was presumed to be because
without the preferred fuel, carbohydrates, their bodies started
burning more of its own protein.) And that’s exactly what happened. Switching to a ketogenic diet
made them lose less fat mass and more fat-free mass;
they lost more lean mass. That may help explain why the
leg muscles of CrossFit trainees placed on a ketogenic diet may
shrink as much as 8 percent. The vastus lateralis is your
biggest quads muscle in your leg, shrunk in thickness by
8% on a ketogenic diet Yes, the study subjects
started burning more fat on the ketogenic diet, but they
were also eating so much more fat on the ketogenic diet that they
ended up retaining more fat in their body despite
the lower insulin levels. This is “diametrically opposite”
to what the keto crowd predicted, and this from the guy they
paid to support their theory. In science-speak, the
carbohydrate–insulin model “failed experimental interrogation.” In light of this “experimental
falsification” of the low-carb theory, the Nutrition Science Initiative
effectively collapsed…. but, based on their tax returns,
not before Taubes and his co-founder personally pocketed millions
of dollars in compensation.

    Interesting video but… you also become less hungry on a ketogenic diet and therefore tend to eat less overall. I lost approx 40 lbs on a Keto diet over 6 months. Was this all water weight? I think not.
    Before I went on a Keto diet I was prepping for a colonoscopy where you cannot eat the day before. I had serious hunger pangs. Today I tend to eat twice a day and my hunger pangs are not what they use to be.

    Meat eating is a cult. It is not based on science, reasoning, logic. Medical science does not back it up for humans. In fact, it shows that meat consumption increases diseases in humans. I have yet to see a scientific study showing fruits and vegetables do the same. Of course, the meat eating cult members are completely in denial of this, even if you put a million verified scientific studies in front of their face. Such is the level of their brainwashing under the flesh eating cult.

    I was in the Keto diet for around 6 months , then went plant base for 6 months .. stayed bloated all the time

    I think a well balanced diet is best ..

    Moderate organic meats .. lots of fresh veggies and healthy plant fats and berries …

    I'm confused… while, ethically, I am against the keto (meat) diet, why is it that so many have lost 100+ pounds on keto? That can't ALL be water. I know several people personally, who have lost from 35 pounds to 130 pounds doing keto. I'm starting to believe that food is not one size fits all. I've seen the keto diet work, well beyond water weight. I believe there is also a vegan version of keto.

    What does the Keto do to your heart, liver, kidneys and the rest of your stomach’s dedicated followers? In the last 14 years that I switched to vegetarian my cancer tumours just faded away, whereas my younger brother has been on and Atkins now even longer and has had, amongst other things, to have his heart stopped and restarted twice, and in the last year has had to wear a walk around monitor several times. Now this is only anecdotal, but I will add that I saw my grandfather, my father, and my two older brothers also succumb to cancer. Which is why it’s not just anecdotal to me.

    Keto may be less efficient but it seems to be easier to do than regular diets. I think long term health effects re general mortality, metabolic syndrome, cognitive fitness are much more relevant than pure fat loss efficiency. Not that I'm convinced that keto is superior, if anything my bet would be on IF with alternating/adaptive high carb / high fat patterns.
    Anyways, there's some damage potential from keto w regards to ppl screwing up fat/protein ratio (lack of willpower and little attention to detail are a general issue here, many ppl who had issues with regular diets will have issues w keto as well for that reason) or iron overload. Probably should donate blood regularly if you're doing keto, especially if you're not exercising as much as you should.

    The problem everyone is looking for a miracle and there isn't one; lowering calories works, vegan works, lowering carbs works, intermittent fasting works. If you change the way you eat you will see results because the body is adjusting to the change. Personally as a vegetarian I believe that lowering carbs works because it worked for me. As a vegetarian we get in the habit of eating a lot of grains, pastas, etc… This can make vegetarians gain weight. In the low carb diet I ate a lot of fresh veggies ditched the rice, pasta, bread, sugar and upped my fats from avocados, grass fed butter, some nuts but didn't over do it. I also increased my exercise and did intermittent fasting (I didn't eat at night)This was something I could do as a new lifestyle not just short term. My suggestion is: stop looking for a miracle and put in the effort to change what made you unhealthy to begin with. Make sure that you go to the Dr on a regular basis to make sure you are on the right track for your body.

    Anyone doing keto for fat loss really doesn’t go high fat. I use a keto diet for fast fat loss you crash your insulin and boost lipolysis enzymes. Hitting protein macro goals and keeping fat to a minimum with under 20g net carbs gets results. The high protein stimulate MTor to keep up muscle retention and to support your elevated gluconeogenesis demands. You cut water retention which keeps your BP in a healthy range and you get the appetite suppression of Ketones. Especially for sedentary individuals dealing with insulin resistance keto is the top performer in my experience with clients.

Where as on the whole food plant based diet I lost 10 pounds my first month, and 3 of them were lean body mass.

    There are a few local groups that swear by the ketogenic diet and that it will help "everyone" lose weight. I directly told them (each group) that it is not as good as they are making it out to be because I already put it to the test personally in my weight loss efforts. I saw less benefit than sticking to carb-heavy foods like, you know, veggies. Your channel has educated me on the keys of weight loss and healthy living and my trial run of keto proved it. Not just one trial run either. I have tried keto about five times over the years and each time it's the same. Sure, I lose some body weight, but it's not really fat loss and I felt my strength was declining in the process. I've settled on a diet with a base carbohydrate of rice or potatoes with pretty much all the veggies I want. It seems to be working. I just have to break old habits that are no good for me.

    This study is bullshit. When you control calories there is no difference between high fat or high carb. The difference in reality is keto is much better able to suppress hunger. When you eat high carb it spikes the blood sugar level and when it starts falling you feel hungry, keto reduces the spikes and makes it easier for someone to adhere to a caloric deficit if weight loss is the goal.

    Most impressively the patients in the study lost 1 lb a week on a typical diet of 2700 calories with typical carbohydrates and typical 25% sugar. At this rate, the United States could be the thinnest nation on Earth in several years. All while burning 57 less calories a day than on the ketogenic diet.

    This study was published in 2016. Not exactly news.

    False and misleading. Wrongly and inaccurately attacking the character of researchers who hold contrarian views. Cherry-picking studies. Poorly-researched. Using "straw men" instead of science. Dr Greger is acting more like "big tobacco" than an honest nutrition researcher. This is sad to see b/c I have greatly admired (and utilized) his videos and blog posts.

    Appreciate you, Dr. Greger! One of your vids made me quit Keto today. Have chosen the whole plant food way instead. Thanks for bringing forward the info. It was the vid with the info about breast cancer, petri dishes and blood samples. Oh my!!!!!

    Well if you eat more fat than you are burning, of course your fat loss will slow down, because you are only burning the fat you are eating. ( common sense) Like everything else LCHF is an art form and it needs to be tailored to each individual. Taking into account lots of variables. eating vegetables and fruit, works for a lot of people, no doubt about it. But we still have this epidemic called T2 diabetes, and once you have it and you are in your later years, you either go on drugs that make you fatter, and so the merry-go- round starts,,,,,,,,, or you can keep your carbs low, do intermittant fasting, and eat just enough fat to get into nutricianal ketosis, and keep your blood suger low, and stay away from drugs. IMHO.

    I agree that this makes sense with what some think the ketogenic diet is. But, that super high fat is not really what it should be, except in a very short term, maybe. It is supposed to be a low carb, moderate fat and moderate protein diet with lots of fresh, non-starchy vegetables and maybe a little bit of berries and other lower sugar fruits. And, it is supposed to be a medical diet for specific medical problems, such as epilepsy and autism. Done for 2-4 weeks at a go. Or, something like that.

    I know I tried it a couple of different ways. When I followed Dr. Eric Berg's version, which was high non-starchy vegetables and moderate fat and protein, I did all right. Though, when I just ate more vegetables than other things and did intermittent fasting, I did way better.

    People on keto diets consume far less calories which leads to the weight loss. The study kept the calories up. The conclusion of the study rightfully destroys the hypothesis that fat calories are magic but it didn’t address the behavioral change in people who adopt keto diets.
