  1. Splendid and well executed video

    I’ve started IF and carnivore(ish) diet about half year go. Prior to that I had an rather small overweight, 170 cm tall, 74kg on weight. Had a few joint pains already at age of 33, tried meds and training to combat that, but had no improvement.
    Then I saw this channel and cut off all liquid sugar. Then started IF, being fasting for 15-18 hours a day, having occasionally 24-36 water/coffee only. Then I am currently eating 2 meals a day, mainly meat, fish, eggs and hard cheese, and I feel about 10 years younger, even though I am not so old. Lost 9 kg, having 6 packs , without training no more than 2 days training, one which is pull up , second is parallel bar pushups. Many thanks to you, Dr Ekberg !

  2. Can you make a video that brings up the difference between KETO & LCHF. I noticed not many people knows and I had a hard time figuring it out, or am still a bit confused over it. Both avoiding carbs, high fat and so on.. some say that Keto is just a stricter form of LCHF? Where goes the line?

  3. Question about fasting window. When you say, for example, eat at noon then again at 6, then you have an 18-hour fasting window, does that mean you need to finish that last meal BY 6? If I start eating at 6, I probably won't be done until 6:30 or 7. Thanks.

  4. I did keto and do IF first with 12 hours for 2 days then 18 hours for 2 days 36 hours 2 days. Now doing OM2D. Finally Real results so far 40lbs. loss started 2 weeks ago. Thus begins my HOLY WAR on SUGAR!!!

  5. For my body, 60-80g of net carbs seems to be the magic number. If I keep it under that, I'm completely fulfilled with my one meal each day and I'm back into Keto by the time I go to bed as long as I get in a 20 min walk after I eat. I would highly suggest investing in a blood glucose / ketone monitor. The strips are a bit pricy but you don't need to check all the time. It's just helpful when getting started so you learn how your body reacts to different foods and it's good to check in and see if things are changing over time (particularly glucose response). I really respect Dr. Ekberg for not pushing any particular diet but rather explaining how things work and how to make it work for you. Thank you!

  6. My doctor was concerned about triglycerides in my blood after a 3 x day fasting period. THey warned me that I had a significantly higher risk of stroke and heart disease. I think what they had measured was increased VLDL and that any risk was potentially mitigated by my intake of anti-oxidants? By the wawy, by fasting and eating a low card diet I have already lost 2 stone (UK) or 12.7Kg.

  7. I’ve began the Keto diet together with fasting. I eat twice a day between 1pm and 7pm . Only consuming coffee or tea in between. I lost 6lb in a week , I’m currently heading to losing another 6lb . This will get me to my target weight. Now weight loss isn’t my only goal as I’m not overweight by much . The knowledge from this channel has only provided the motivation to get a healthier life! Thank you Dr Ekberg . Greetings from Ireland 🇮🇪

  8. I feel it's so easy to intermittent fast when my good fat intake is increased anyway as I'm simply not hungry. And the best part is that my physical performance for moderate workouts or even mental alertness does not feel impaired in anyway. Quite the opposite.

  9. I am doing omad 5 days a week along with Keto and weekends eat more normal but still Keto. Lost 25 pounds in 4 weeks but have now stalled for over 2 weeks…am I fasting to much? Did I crash my metabolism? Or is it normal and the weight loss will continue? Landskrona rules!!😂

  10. Im currently doing keto plus OMAD. Results are super fast and i believe the super fast results motovate me to no end. I got hungry earlier, i went to the mirror and lifted my jumper, i was no longer hungry. 👌

  11. Greetings from the Philippines! I love the Calmness, Clarity and Your Abililty to Make Complex and Complicated things to simple and crystal clear…By the way Doc, Im on my 8th day of low carb + 18:6 IF , I eat at 1pm and 7 pm but in the morning around around 9 til I eat at 1 im suffering from mild left abdominal pain that radiates to my back but when i drink water and breath deeply it disappear for a while then back again after a minute or so, I humbly ask your clever idea or recommendations on this, thank u and hoping for your response, great day/night and more power to ur enlightenment channel…

  12. One part I wish you could explain in more details in this video is about the exact mechanism how the body would become more and more insulin resistant (IR) if the insulin level gets high enough. I am stuck there (~5:40). Other than that, this and many other videos you made are super helpful for me to understand the logics behind these diets. Thank you for the knowledge! I'm trying low carb and IF (16:8) currently and I feel really motivated 🙂

  13. VERY few people can do OMAD & keto…that much volume & those types of food in 1 meal is just not practical. Like I doubt more than even 5% of people could do that comfortably…

  14. People always say they don't feel full without carbs…then they cite something like white potatoes which is very satiating (even higher than fasts on a satiating index). What's a good response to that?
