Life-Saving Facts On INSULIN RESISTANCE And INTERMITTENT FASTING You Must Know. Intermittent fasting has been shown to have major benefits for insulin resistance and lead to an impressive reduction in blood sugar levels. Dr. Ekberg explains what you need to know about IR (insulin resistance) and IF (intermittent fasting) so you can lose weight, get healthy and live a long healthy live.

Intermittent Fasting is very powerful to help reverse insulin resistance. Sometimes a healthy diet is not enough to reduce blood sugar levels and insulin levels. When you eat a healthy diet low carb diet like keto with intermittent fasting can help reduce insulin faster than eating a low carb diet alone. By using both keto and intermittent fasting you can help reduce inflammation in the body and lower insulin resistance.

  1. I have been watching this series on reversing IR and I can only say how grateful I am for your concise and explicit explanations. I have read a good deal about IR already, but your videos put everything into place for me. Thank you so much, Dr Ekberg!

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to produce these videos the information you dispense is clear and concise. I have never felt so healthy since fasting. The benefits of giving your gut a rest is astounding. Weight loss, better sleep, more energy the list goes on. I finally feel I have control over my eating and really appreciate what goes into my body now.

  3. 4:38 Liver is a small organ. Fact :The largest solid internal organ is your liver. It weighs approximately 3–3.5 pounds or 1.36–1.59 kilograms and is about the size of a football.  All other information is very useful and too good.

  4. Thanks so much for this Doc! I am hooked to your videos! I know this is a late comment but i really hope u respond.
    My question is about hypoglycemia here pls 🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️
    I have been hypoglycemic for as long as i can remember (as a kid) and later diagnosed with insulin resistance at a young age – mostly blaming it on my genetics. So how can i handle hypoglycemia during intermittent fasting?! 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  5. Just want you to know how much I appreciate you and your video's. Your info is rock solid, and greatly needed by many desperate people; and I was most desperate. I've been sharing all your vids with many, and your indeed, making millions healthy.
    God bless you Sir.

  6. Your video has saved my life I now have no diabetes and a normal blood pressure thank you I’ve got so much more energy and eat only twice a day

  7. Just recently found out about IF and insulin resistance. I have lost more weight and changed my body composition in just a few months than with dieting and exercise my whole life !! I am so happy and upset at the same time ! Lol ..hate that it took me over 20 yrs to find out the real culprit. Really good video and great information, thank you so much for all this life saving information. I love Intermittent fasting I usually do 16/8 just have to work on reducing my carbs more ! Lol working on it !

  8. I hv been doing IF mostly 16:8 weekly and mybe 20:4 once a week for the past 8 mths…started at 80kg and now lowered my weight to 71kg. I workout wt weights 4/week , run 3/wk (15km/wk total) & cycle 2/wk (130-150km/wk)…no problem doin those workout/run/cycling while fasting…keen follower of your channel & learner soo much from you. Big thanks to u Dr, wish i know abt this IF thingy long time ago…

  9. Thanks for the formula for health. Carbs are a runaway habit. Forests are laid bare by ploughed fields to produce those tempting carbs. Millions of restaurants, frequent advertising and cooking videos help us to find ingenious ways to pack our bodies with more food than we need, creating cravings. So an increasing percentage of our day is spent eating and paying homage to Bacchus. Armageddon?

  10. I would love your input with people who are on HRT during menopause and men for decreased levels. All with symptoms corrected by HRT. How does this all play into eating and maintaining proper insulin sensitivity and proper fat adaptation. Other ideas to naturally increase sex hormones. You speak continously about cortisol and insulin. But never about estrogen and testosterone. Maybe a segment on HRT the do's and don'ts … And how it plays a role in your body. Thanks, Doug

  11. I’ve been watching your videos for the past 2 months and have developed a new understanding of how the body works. I am working towards going low carb and/or keto, then fasting then OMAD. It takes time and that’s ok. What I’d like to know though is how I can adapt this as a family lifestyle. It is a lifestyle philosophy after all and if I believe that it’s the sensible diet to follow then I want my children (10&13) to understand what I’m discovering for their future health. Unfortunately, nowhere do you see this information presented to kids. (you should consider it!) I’d most probably say because it’s relatively just recently caught on. Is there a guideline on how to incorporate this lifestyle into a family with children? What extent is considered safe for kids? Not the fasting necessarily but do you recommend any source of info to follow? Thank you.

  12. Four weeks ago I was diagnosed with DMII and I went on LCHF/healthy keto with IF, after I said no to medication. I listened to my body, and after a short time I discovered eating less and cutting out carbs meant I wasn’t hungry. I’m now happy with a keto coffee in the morning and I eat dinner around 6 or 7 at night. That’s all I need, my body is telling me it’s happier. My sleep has improved so much, too. I started to take berberine to kick me into ketosis. It’s amazing. Thanks for all your great info, Dr Ekberg. I’ve been watching your videos every day and they help so much 🤩 I’ve already lost 5kg and my blood glucose levels have dropped dramatically. It’s wonderful to say no to medication and see my doctor’s surprise Pikachu face when she checks my blood glucose levels! Haha

  13. Currently combining the ketogenic diet with a 2-hours eating window. Started because I wanted to get rid of a "pizza-crust" kind of stubborn belly fat. Now, after 2 weeks of initial misery and about a month in, I am definitely not going back to the Standard Western Diet.

  14. How not to lose weight doing 18:6 because I'm skinny allready but my blood glucose is a little bit high around 110 in the morning

  15. Dear Dr Ekberg I've been diagnosed with pre diabetes. Ever since I've heard you in the videos I've started fasting 20:4 .. And eating OMAD. Your videos have infused a ray of sunshine in body and I feel so good. One month now and my energy level is skyrocketing always. I don't feel any starvation as initially I felt for a few days. You are doing a yeoman's job. I'm waiting for my lipid results now and will share good news hopefully.

  16. I am 63 and have been a recreational competitive triathlete for 30 years. In 2018 I had 2 stents put in after feeling bad after a race. I was very confused. There was no explanation by the doctors and I was put on the protocol of many drugs. After 2 months and with many hours of my research I quit all drugs and went on a Keto diet. I am back to racing and all my times are the same as before.

  17. Just had a visit with my doc today and even though he's fresh and young he's dogmatic about the traditional definition of insulin resistance and how it relates to fasting. Always wants to recommend another insulin forcing drug. My BG hasn't been below 140 in several months! Today I'm 20 hours in on a ? fast and my BG is 117! All I have otherwise is 10 units of base insulin taken last night before bed.

  18. Thank you for the videos! I have been doing no sugar, no fruit and under 20 grams of carbs a day (carbs from veggies) for 4 months and I started doing intermittent fasting 16/8 (2 meals a day, protein and veggies) and felt great for about a week then I had a complete crash, got really tired and was experiencing hypoglycemia. Is this normal? Should I push through this or stop the IF? Or shorten the time on the IF?

  19. I used to digest all these information (even the graphs!) through academic presentations of many Keto and IF speakers in Youtube. Not very easy to understand for the public who are not familiar with academic the way of presenting information. Having stumbled upon this video cements my knowledge on Low Card and IF. I believe your presentation makes it easier for the public to start on this journey. Thanks Dr. Sten!

  20. Hi Dr Sten, thank you for video. I have just started with 24hrs fasting and break fast during dinner because this is the only meal i have with my family. I will take a black coffee with no sugar with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in the morning and at noon. Throughout the day i just had water. I am a t2 diabetic. Can you advise me if i am doing it correctly?

  21. Often the blood glucose I woke up with stays pretty much the same until I eat. Usually only one meal a day. My blood sugars are rock stable now. Even during extended fasting they vary little.

  22. Hi Dr. thank you so much for your wonderful videos I’m glad I found your channel. I have a question, How long does the body take to adapt or goes back to the normal status I would say, I mean or to heal completely and not suffer from insulin resistance? Hopefully you understand what I mean ( so sorry but my English isn’t perfect ) thank you so much in advance.

  23. After the massive heart atrack in March, when they also discovered my diabetes, I've followed a very low carb diet, my blood sugar dropped from over 400 to almost normal levels, without metformin, even though the doctored prescribed it to me. Only in the hospital they gave me Lantus for 2 weeks after the heart attack. I have also lost 12 kg from March until today, from 74 kg I have now 62, with no hunger and no significant effort. What you say is very true. I want to mention that for a month I've also eaten only 600 calories a day, 3 meals a day, at 8 in the morning, at 12 and last meal at 18, no snacks. I don't know what will happen with my body from now on, how I will manage my atherom plaque :(. Doctors say it is irreversable….
