  1. But… for weight loss, even on keto/IF, should you avoid eating less than your BMR? Have done 16/8 and keto for over a year now, but the last 3 months I have been eating about 300 kcal less than my BMR and progress have stalled. Have tried breaking it by several 24-36 hour fasts but with very little result. Should I increase my calories back up to BMR level?

  2. Appreciate you so much Dr. Ekberg!! You have helped me so much to understand my body and how it works and your advice is absolutely spot on!! Thank you!!

  3. I am confused. He says that calorie restricition doesn't work. But when you do intermittent fasting, isn't that also calorie restriction? I mean, if you have one meal a day, you are not supposed to eat 2000+ calories in just one meal, right? I don't get it. Can someone explain it to me?

  4. Dr Ekberg! thank you so much! I started following your videos and education about two months ago. I am feeling amazing and at age 53 I just hit my high school weight. I also feel much younger and rejuvenated which is even more important to me! I’ve suffered from poor health for the last 20 years, diabetes and heart disease. I feel like my body is working properly now, and things will only get better. Thank you for this second chance at life! You have my eternal gratitude!

  5. Dear Dr. Ekberg. I hear from many doctors and experts that our body reacts when we start fasting and decreases the metabolism. When I eat low glysemic foods and healthy fats in my OMAD regime, then I start feeling that my body gets quickly fat adapted, but after some point I almost stop loosing weight even if I only do IF and keto. It feels like my metabolism slows down.

    What will you recommend to me to do?

    Thanks for the answer and very informing videos. 🙂

  6. Started Keto because of you. I'm really excited to see if it works. I've been trying to lose weight for some time (i'm not obese), but everytime i try, it happens as you described and then i feel desmoralized and then go back to junk foods several times a week. I've been oscilating between 78 Kgs and 72 kgs for years now. My normal weight for someone my size would be to 68 – 72 KGs.

    I decided to do keto a week ago. And i don't remember the last time i felt hungry. Intermitent fasting really works only with high fat, moderate proteing diets, since there's no insulin to trigger hunger.

  7. Thanks for a nice video!!! I have practiced keto for som months and also EF, I have lost about 35 kilo. Now I have hade som weeks where I feel tired and very hungry all the time. I have diabetes type 2 and my blood-sugar is quit low, 4,3-5,5 mmol. My Keaton levels are between 1.2-2,7. So I think it is strange that I’m so hungry when am in ketosis. And I got cold hands and feet almost all the time, I usually is very warm. Is this normal? Thanks again!!!!

  8. That is exactly what happend to me on my first Month on IF/Keto. I've lost 22 Pounds while eating 600 Calories per appetite was just gone..I felt miserable..then i hit plateau for 2 Weeks. Then startet to gaining all lost Weight back again. Seconde Month, while my body ware getting more Fat-adapted i eat without a Problem 1600 Calories healthy Keto meal in one sitting, felt full and satisfied and of course Pounds started to drop much fasten as first Month.
