Real Doctor Reacts to What’s Wrong With Jillian Michaels’ Explanations on Intermittent Fasting

Real Doctor Reacts to What’s Wrong with Jillian Michaels’ Explanations on Intermittent Fasting. According to Jillian Michaels Intermittent Fasting is not a good weight loss. She said that the only thing that works for weight loss is calories in calories out. She said that intermittent fasting is beneficial, but not for losing weight. Jillian talks about her diet and makes it sound like it should be the diet for everyone. This way to eating might work for her, but not for everyone as we have seen in the contestants from The Biggest Loser. Most of the people that competed on The Biggest Loser have gained all their weight back and some weight more than when the started.

In this video Doctor Sten Ekberg reacts and explains why he questions the diet that Jillian is promoting and questions why should would say what she did about intermittent fasting. This is not the first time Jillian Michaels has talked out about diets. She is a fitness expert, but there are question about her knowledge in nutrition. In January 2019, she attacked the keto diet. If you would like to see Dr. Ekberg’s keto diet reaction watch this video.

  1. Jillian Michaels is a dope ! It’s all nonsense! You only need 5 minutes of exercise and your videos are the greatest! I can’t thank you enough! I fast 23 hours each day and was in excellence condition when I started and thanks to you I went from great to better than great ! I am 61 and will follow you system to the day I die ! Any non- believers just look at my picture! 5 minutes of new exercise I invented and Dr. Ekberg’s diet ! Jillian Michaels and her Fitness is a scam people! Dr. Ekberg is the Best ! He in a class of his own !

  2. I lost 26 kilos (58 lbs) doing the 16/8 intermittent fast like thirty moths ago. Gained 10 kg back throughout 2020, but I recently managed to get roughly 20 kg (44 lbs) off thanks to OMAD mostly clean low carb in less than two months. I also kept most of my muscle mass, btw….

  3. If calories in and calories out is all that matters. Then clearly fasting would be the best way to lose weight. You can't do better than zero calories in.

  4. I'm absolutely in awe and love about the way you think. Appreciate it a lot.
    Btw., started my way to health with cutting carbs and drinking bp coffee in the mornings. Still vegan.
    Let's see if this will fix my chronic pain issues.

  5. Calories in versus calories out is correct. The assumption is that your body handles all calories the same way. This assumption is not close to true. Your body doesn't even treat the same type of calorie the same way all of the time. This is why IF works especially when paired with a clean diet.

  6. Thanks for this curse. For me it is quite limpid. I have experimented myself that there is weight loss and no yoyo with ketogenic diet and IF. I am on one meal per day, at noon, and sometimes I am cheating a little bit but on the long rung I think it is OK.
    I have for some time a question to ask not totally related to this video. When you were decathlete, could you have followed a strict ketogenic diet to achieve your performances level? Pending to this, when you do sports like cycling, with some steep roads in mountains and some medium or long distances, even with no competition in mind, do you think we could stay on a ketogenic diet without some issues ? During those periods, is it a real problem to raise a bit the carbohydrate amount in the food ?
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  7. I don't know. Yes it's very simplistic. Was in hospital for a few months and the food wasn't incredibly healthy but it was back to the 70s with 3 meals a day in order to chase the medication down. Medium breakfast, medium lunch and large dinner which I often could not finish. I lost nearly fifteen percent of my weight in those few months while often looking at my meals and thinking they weren't very healthy. Have kept the same regime for nearly 3 months now and weight loss has remained off. Seems to work for me. Half hour light exercise and two light one large meal. I find life easier and happier with this scenario as well. Don't get me wrong, I like this channel and has in depth explanation which makes sense. Since hospital my brain has little retention but is getting better so two light one large works for me with dinner at sixl

  8. Eat 4000 calories at age 17 no weight gain.
    Do the same at age 60, see what happens.
    She's obviously wrong, and so certain that she's right, however thankfully I still don't know who she is, nor why we should give her airtime.

  9. I think both Jillian and Dr Sten are correct. You start off with the general math which is calories in and calories out. In the case of Jillian and Greg Doucette, you next figure out how to keep yourself satisfied on your budget of calories (they don't just ignore it). You can do that however you wish including an occasional candybar and fasting diet if you prefer. Many on the fasting diet have problems with overeating for their one meal. Additionally, it seemed a little unfair that in Dr Sten's graphs, his 2 spikes a day were not twice as big as the 4 spikes from the Jillian representation. Of course Dr Sten made some good points he covered as well. I lost about 40 lbs last year, meeting my goal using the Jillian/Greg Doucette approach and have kept it off for about a year now. It definitely can work.

  10. I'm currently using the 20.4 schedule which seems to work with me, with an average of 2.5 to 5 miles of walking per day. I'm 53 years old and in the last 60 days lost 16 pounds off my 279 lbs. I started with the 18.6 and have completed a couple of 24 to 48 hour fasts to test myself and see what I was capable of.

  11. I admire Doctor Ekberg for his restraint! He really knows how to separate the person from the message which is pretty admirable. I would definitely have more colorful words to say.

  12. Insulin is a response to food. The more you do of something the more the body will adapt and resists . Insulin is a storage hormone and it will make you hungry. every person on the planet has different levels of hungry. It's going to be harder to resist at an individual level.

  13. Let me tell you my generation is year 2004 -2011. I'm going to characterize my generation. Maybe 1% have the curiosity to watch this completely Essential video for a healthy life. The rest of my generation across the board do not know what a catapilar it. They aren't concerned with their health in any way shape or form beyond looking cute in workout clothes. These videos go so deeply than anything I've ever encountered in my life. My generation and the lower generation has been groomed!! Most are not capable! That's generations of yes man and doers. They would never ask questions. The reptile hobby was the only thing I have seen that actually use our government in a beneficial way. I know absolutely nothing about our government. And I'm an American that's education 5 through 12 . And two years of college. Our health classes were just about the triangle 🔺️ pyramid. And that model literally is all used to make us put on the most weight.

  14. A bear is genetically pre programed to go without food for 7 months. For a bear he eats the salmon and his body is immediately hungry to put on exactly the amount of weight he needs as a species to make it through this hibernation. So no Julian lol 😆 Humans are not bears nor similar to bears.

  15. I can't seem to give up my craving for sweets. I've done 24-hr fasts, 48-hr fasts, and I did one 72-hr fast…nothing changed. You can't change an ADHD brain that craves dopamine from one source. It's hopeless. 🙁
