    The inflammatory oils are one of the hardest things to kick out of my diet. I'm going to have to learn to make the basic things I buy that include them (mayo, ranch, etc.). Keto has changed my life and is healing my body. It's time to take it to the next level.

    I suffer from severe metabolic syndrome, so I tried many things but the best thing that helped was alpha lipoic acid, chromium, biotin, cinnamon, lower carb diet (not no carb I kept my carbs around 200 grams per day which was way less than I used to it. but then I went through the worst change of life I can ever imagine, to the point of being suicidal, couldn't figure out why it was so difficult than I remember I have a history of antibiotic use and I think when my estrogen came down so quickly maybe candida die off? I also found that my body temps went up, for years and years I would be around 96 degrees on average now I am at 99.5 regularly. I am also can eat some pasta and fruits with little problems, I just have to watch the amount of dairy because I think it raises insulin a lot. I did lose some weight and so far it has not come back.

    Great information Dr. Berry …wanted your take on this dilemma so i have been for about last 3 months intermittent fasting every single day usually between 16-18 hours per day. I also have cut off prob 85% of my carb intake and cut out almost all the sugar I used to eat. I have lost 24 pounds which is great. However my concern is i'm a type 2 diabetic and my sugars have been running high on days when i do not take my insulin shots on about average 280-330 and this is before i eat my first meal for the day. I have been drinking 2 – 3 cups of coffee per day and usually at night which i do add sugar free liquid creamer and sugar free powered creamer and a some Stevia extract as well. I've also switched to ketchup made with Splenda instead of sugar. Do you think that the creamers are the main reason that my sugars are not under control ? Or could it be other factors as well ? I appreciate input from all who have experienced this and what you did to correct it. Thank you all in advance.

    Do you have any information on IF and the keto diet helping COPD? I would appreciate a video, if this could help. I don't know if I could get my brother to try either with a "it couldn't hurt approach.)

    I've watched several of your videos and the information is great. I do have a long winded questions that might require a long winded answer. Based on everything I've been watching and reading insulin is the route of all evil. I'm 325 lbs, male, had diabetes for 15 years, I'm 48 years old, I take 3 diabetes pills, humalog and Lantus.
    I guess my question is can the Keto diet work while I'm still on insulin and all these different drugs for diabetes or all the meds preventing this from working. Thanks

    Well, it would seem that I have Metabolic Syndrome, but I didn't know it until I watched your video. I can check off all five of the characteristics you have stated. I've just started on Keto, and it seems to working quite well so far. I was wondering if you have such a thing as a maintenance plan, or do I just keep eating this way even after I have reached my goal weight?

    Cotton seed oil is used a lot in Restuarants and Fish and chip shops and Take away food places in Australia. You don't see it in the supermarket, but i've seen piles of empty cotton seed oil cans out the back of a hotel and also a restuarant. Also the oil is and has been GMO for ages. It passed as ok because, hey why would GMO cotton in your shirt be a problem?

    Just had all my labs done and my hdl is 42. I eat the fat from meats, coconut oil, avo oil, and butter. Can I do anything else to increase it or just have to wait it out? I've been keto for three months.

    hi Dr Berry, i have been doing the ketogenic lifestyle with about 20 carbs, no whites (sugar, flour, pasta, rice, etc) since 1 March . Yet my blood sugars fasting is around 110.
    I do intermittent fasting, no snacking. 2 meals a day, had most of my thyroid removed due to a goiter about 30 years ago. I am not hungry throughout the day, so fasting is no issue. Now I am hypo thyroid, yet I can’t get any thyroid meds since my standard tests come back „normal.“ i have all the classic hypothyroid symptoms as well as adrenal fatigue . My blood sugar is about 110 fasting and I have a pharmacy of supplements trying to cure myself. Currently I am 60 pounds overweight, I have lost slowly 15 pounds so far but seems I am hitting a plateau. My waist is 41 inches, it’ was 45. it seems the weight is coming off my legs and some off my hips, I am a Apple shape. When I eat my belly swells up. Can you please give me some idea what I should eat for thyroid Keto foods and to crank my metabolism . Very frustrated, I do walk about 30 mins a day and stay busy moving through out the day.

    I am sorry but I did the SlimFast diet before doing keto, I lost 35 and have kept it off for more than 8-9 months. It just depends on the person, thats why diets succeed or fail!

    Dr. Is 100% correct! Within 1 month of quitting sugar and reducing my carb intake…my BP dropped from 145/90 to 120/80…..my fasting glucose dropped from mid 90’s to low 80’s……my weight dropped from 202 to 190…..in a little over a month! Give your body a break,,,,if you cant quit the sugar and carbs,,,,slowly reduce them. 👍

    I can’t stay on a Ketogenic diet. It is too expensive for my food stamp budget, and I always feel thirsty for sugar, presumably fruit. But, overall I have cut down on my carbs and increased my fat intake. I go on fasting mimicking diets occasionally. Those are Ketogenic but do not make me crave for fruit. Improvements are slow and painstaking. In one year, my A1C went down from 6 to 5.6. My triglycerides went down from 362 to 230, and my HDL went up from 40 to 60. That’s not a cure, but definitely an improvement. Judging by that, I know your advice is good. Dr. Gregor wrote about how not to die from diabetes, but those people were taking insulin. Insulin is not prescribed for metabolic syndrome. He also referred to a study of a in vitro experiment that showed a droplet of saturated fat could kill a beta cell. Also fats within our cells contribute to insulin resistance, hence my daughter thought I should go fat-free. I’m sure that dietary saturated fat does not translate into saturated fat getting into our cells.

    I have been eating next to no carbs and all the fats I can get and have been fasting at least 12 hours between meals for about 6 weeks and my blood sugar is still through the roof(250+). About 3 weeks ago it was at 150 and then it went up again. I am losing my mind and getting more and more frustrated. Can someone please help!

    I lost 30 pounds in a year doing mostly a low carb/keto off and on for almost a year. Then I went up during the holidays and when I started QVAR for asthma. I went back on after seeing my big bum on a TV show so went totally keto in Jan. to Feb and lost about 12 pounds more then suddenly it stopped completely. I don't eat bread, pasta, sugar, wheat, or cereal at all except for on 2 days: st. patrick's day and my son's bday I had some pizza and cake. That's it. No beer. After having some bourbon while on keto I'll never do that again! Learned the hard way. I have not lost anything since February. In fact, I was at 228 then when I had birthday cake I went up to 233 and haven't gone down at all. I eat hamburger meat, steak, chicken, eggs, block cheese, real butter. etc. I do not eat vegetable oil. I do not drink alcohol. I do have olive oil and coconut oil. I don't eat fast food although I will get a grilled chicken bacon salad if I'm out. No bread. No chips. I have a small tight bulge under my breast area right where the liver is and it looks more dominant on the right side than the left. I haven't lost inches, either. How long does this take before it goes away? I have plans! My doctor is useless except to get my emergency inhaler (i've had asthma since i was 3)

My PCP has never even mentioned this, let alone diagnosed me with it, even though I clearly have been dealing with this for years. Longer than I've been going to him. Thanks for all the information and suggestions, Dr. Berry. I'm so grateful I can come to your channel as a source to steer me toward health. Thank you so much! <3

    Pyscotropic medications cause metabolic syndrome. I take 3 psychotropic medications and they definitely contribute to metabolic syndrome. It’s very frustrating cause I exercise and eat healthy. However, I did have the most success with the ketogenic diet. I need to get back on keto asap
