BodyBuilder Diet – The CARB CONFUSION Principle


100 Comments

  1. At 207Lb 6ft 3 lean athletic physique, I eat a full plate of rice with half as many beans to rice on top with a bowl of salad for dinner(I'm a vegetarian). I feel like I eat to much rice compared to you.

  2. a video on ketosis diet

  3. I love your content and have considered your program. Mainly because I got respect for your no bull shit factual approach. Until today that it is. You briefly skipped over keytones and were dismissive of their energy potential. I train on a Ketogenic diet and it is only in the adaptation phase that your power suffers. Overall there is way more energy available than you can get from carbs once adapted. A little disappointed you haven't done your research on that front.

  4. I want fuckin chineese!

  5. Oatmeal mofo

  6. Can you please add normal metric system weights when you use us weights, please?

  7. great trainer but its keto all the way for me and my clients.

  8. The grease from my Angus burger is running down my chin as I watch this.

  9. I am a self-proclaimed genius, therefore, I declare that I need to cut carbs! Thus, it is so, for I have declared it!! 👳

  10. You guys really want to spend $$$ on athlean x training plans and meal plans?! when you can get all this advice and even better from actual bodybuilders and certified professionals at Bodybuilding.com its free!!!!

  11. CAHHHHBBS sorry been watching Scott too much

  12. Very good video

  13. what is that thing hanging on your wall next to the painting??

  14. I have to do is 2 day very low carb ,one day normal ,otherwise I bloat and put weight on fast

  15. Go keto

  16. Wait, there is a scratch and ad lib that lead into the beat? Why is that always edited out??

  17. Don't they make you bloat? I came here to know that

  18. Please elaborate on why you prefer carbohydrates over ketones, And how many carbs would you recommend per day?

  19. Do you have to track your macros?

  20. Jef , the human body is diferent from metabolism , so what food its ok for you to keep u lean is not working for someone with low metabolism. You have a high metabolism so you can eat carbs ..

  21. Jeff used the marker to record this video

  22. love ur channel and philosophies and obviously looking at ur physique u know what ur doing, but carbohydrates r absolutely not a more efficient form of energy than fats. quite the opposite. yes doing a high fat/low carb diet will deplete ur glycogen stores, but u don't have to eat lots of carbs everyday to keep that from happening. doing a carb refeed a couple times a week will keep ur glycogen stores from depleting. our body is wired to use carbs for energy simply because it is the path of least resistance meaning less steps r involved to make it happen. but they absolutely r not necessary to build lean muscle and be healthy. of the 3 macros we have to consume there r carbs, lipids, and proteins or amino acids. there r essential fatty acids and essential amino acids, there r NO essential carbohydrates because our body can easily convert things into sugars. just my .02 cents

  23. It's nice to see Jeff in a shirt

  24. Actually, Jeff, I'm MORE confused now. If carbs are so necessary, how do you explain Joe Rogan's regimen? It's been my understanding that fat is burned more cleanly than carbs.

  25. The confusion is mostly about how much is too much or not enough .. I’m afraid that vid addressed nothing

  26. Waiting for that big silver phone to ring with the Avengers on the other line summoning Jeff! XD

  27. Keto is dope af though.

  28. Here In UK only a millionaire or billionaire would have a house this big.

  29. Yeah a real balanced diet, not all those low carb/low fat/paleo/atkins gimmicks

  30. Does this not make you insulin resistant?

  31. how many grams per lean weight of carbs is it allowed to eat per day when i want to lose fats ???

  32. Buddy, you need carbs!! Your skinny as hell.

  33. jeff can u tell us how many meals like that we need

  34. how many carbs do I need to eat to cut fat gain muscle 170 lbs 5'10 active male

  35. Us vegetarian bodybuilders love are carbs!!!!!

  36. scariest thing for me is lookin flat. I'd rather shit myself in public than look flat.

  37. The only good carbs are sweet patatoes etc., no bread pasta quinoa…

  38. I like the old school phone on the wall

  39. Did he just say ketones aren't an efficient energy source or long term solution? Oh boy.

    As much as I love your videos, Jeff, please either stick to the PT / physiotherapy side of things, or brush up on your nutrition / physiology before making such a video

  40. he has a video on everything Keep it up

  41. Jeff's videos from 6 years ago make more sense than half the nonsense uploaded by these fitness experts today.

  42. Jeff is a hardgainer. He can’t relate to people with insulin resistance

  43. I haven't ate in two weeks… I had to watch this first and left it on my watch later ☹️

  44. I feel like keto is mostly used by people who were or are obese. They are/ were obese for a reason…. and def eating more protein makes u feel fuller. If it works for u, and u get results… why not? I love carbs though… so yeah. 👊

  45. 4:35, ghost moves chair. 👀

  46. Hi Jeff! Really like your channel…can you please advise the importance of calcium intake or supplements.

  47. anyone know if there's a better time of day to consume your carbs? Morning or night?

  48. I got a glad trash bags ad then I go ahead and see that there is a glad commercial playing on the TV, are you sponsored by glad?

  49. i have more energy training in a fasted state lol i dont need carbs

  50. How do you get your Vitamins? Or is it all through meals? Or supplements?

  51. Its true, eating carbohydrates again I can tell there is significant increase in energy and power, and stamina. I can finally increase amount of weight im working with, can run decent distance again, oh and also no more spinning head when i get up quickly. My advice, guys you know you need carbs so don't try to invent bike.

  52. I’m on cyclical keto, 1-2 x per week n it works great. Building muscle n have more energy. I will admit I do need carbs because how intense my workouts are. I think it’s about finding what works for you. I look at a potato n gain 5 lbs where someone else may respond better.

  53. You shared a good dinner plate. What about the other meals?

  54. Great info, as usual. Thank you

  55. I just came off keto and I approve this message.

  56. Absolutely true! There’s so much misinformation on this subject. Even a simple carb like dextrose after a killer workout ( maybe mixed with whey) works great for recovery.

  57. Dosent soy lower testosterone?

  58. Can we eat rice and chicken together for bulking? I read starch and protein should not be mixed together… Is it healthy or not?

  59. No you're wrong I used to weigh 260 now I weigh 170 I've been on a low carb high fat diet since September of 2017 I have plenty of energy I started lifting weights I am 58 years old I've not see my app since my was in my twenties now I see my apps the keto diet work for me I can bench 250 lb and deadlift 125 to 150 so something's working tell me what I used to be type 2 diabetic high blood pressure and all that's one away since I've done the ketogenic diet so something's working besides eating carbs and sugar and intermittent fasting which my growth hormones help me build leaner muscles and I'm ripped since I use more than I was when I was playing football is back in the seventies

  60. All this guy eats is chicken, edamame, and sweet potatoes lol

  61. Hi Jeff and thanks for everything,your channel is amazing! i have a question: is it true that when you eat carbs your insulin level is bigger and your body stop/can't burn fat? If it's true what can i do about that? I am not fat and i train and get results but want to know about my lower abs fat..

  62. If I eat brown rice with lunch and dinner is that too much?

  63. That house looks huge

  64. But how can you burn fat with full glycogen storages

  65. Less than 10% of my diet has been carbs for the last 4 months… Size 38 to 32. Dropped 20 lbs… Chest and biceps are popping, lats double in size, and just looking good. If you wanna lose weight, drop the carbs

  66. Great content Jeff as always very informative

  67. Accidentally killed my newborn son because I tried to make him follow the “don’t eat until you’ve watched this”. Anyone know how to fix?

  68. I still haven't technically watched this video, and I haven't eaten in months!

  69. I'm still confused. I respect all the knowledge you show about muscles and training and the success you have both personally and socially, with you gym and your channel. So I hoped you would solve my confusion, but it still wasn't enough. I had a herniated disc and my doctor diagnosed it as a muscle tightening. I did his physiotherapy for 6 months, only to get worse and worse. I learned a little about pain online and suggested to him I had a herniated disc, but he said it was nonsense. When he finally accepted the possibility and the exam showed it was real, it was already too advanced (doctors told me) and I had to do surgery. During all this time, till I recovered from surgery, I gained a lot of weight. I was already chubby. So now I've lost 70 lbs in a year, doing no exercises and eating lots of fat – just controlling carbs (eating less than 1.5 oz a day). I felt great all around. Didn't fell any lack of energy or draining, though I didn't exercise. I'm starting to exercise now. Do my body need carbs to exercise and gain muscle, or even if I don't exercise I will still need those carbs in the long run for something? Because a year aiming at 1.5oz carbs a day (and just that) felt great. Thank you.

  70. He eats that 5x a day ??

  71. muy bueno!!!!

  72. I literally put my fork down before eating a plate of spinach noodles and beans

  73. Did you guys see that ghost?

  74. I use to do under 25 grams carbs a day and lost 35 pounds But was weak in the gym. So I uped it to 50-70 a day and My strength is back and I can maintain My weight.
    Everyone is different. Burning fat for fuel did not work for Me unless I go really light weight.

  75. watching this while eating

  76. His home looks like a hotel

  77. I love your program. God is working through you. Keep up the great work!!!!

  78. The idea of carbohydrates for consistent energy is just wrong. Carbohydrates will spike your blood sugar levels and then they will plummet, causing cravings. Ever since I cut out 90-95 per cent of carbs I no longer get cravings. Your body can use fat and protein for fuel efficiently. Watch dr Eric berg on this. Also causes problems like stress, insulin resistance so less protein can enter the cells, acne, poor sleep, depression, etc.

  79. How do you not count calories or macros or whatever? Don’t calories = fat and Lb,s? Maybe I make it harder than it needs to be and that’s why I gain back any weight I loose pretty easily.

  80. It"s good to rotate and vary carb sources, like on that plate.

  81. Hi Jeff! Omg love your brain (and bod) so much. Question: a popular YouTuber says you cannot combine fats with carbs in a meal and that will lead to weight gain no matter. What are your thoughts on this? I trust your knowledge and advice over anyone else so would really love to here your thoughts on this. Thank you sir! 💪🏽✌🏽

  82. Eating is KILLING YOUR GAINS

  83. This video was vary helpful and explains why I’m exhausted most of the time

  84. Your house looks haunted sorry

  85. What's that thing on the wall?!!!!!

  86. i am confusion

  87. thank you jeff… i was on the carnivore diet that's been getting popular these days for about 2 years and felt like shit. eating carbs completely vanished all the energy problems i was having on the carni diet. i was brainwashed that the carbs are the worst for human health, but i'm pretty sure it's essential. if you wanna actually feel good. this video killed the fear for the carbs.

  88. I've heavily cut carbs and have dropped about 40 lbs. I feel that due to the lack of carbs though my intensity and energy in the gym is lacking.

  89. 2019

  90. 20 years no eating since 92 was pretty hard ..

  91. 2:55 Jeff is so dedicated that he drinks water even in beer mug.

  92. A man's man kinda guy! Simple & to the point!

  93. But carbs are not helping my weight loss at the moment, as opposed to when I was low carb I was dropping weight. Same intensity workout, consistency is the same.. sooo maybe my body is not made for carbs other than the simple carbs

  94. Could you do a video about carbs cycle please?

  95. I normally revere your information and agree with 97% if it. BUT, YOU are dead wrong on this topic. I am also a trainer. I was also against Atkins when I first heard about it. But I was part of a study at the hospital I used to work, which put 1,700 people on Atkins diet. Their triglycerides went down, and good cholesterol went up, and they felt great after the first two weeks. I have been using Atkin's ever since, and I am more muscular than you Jeff (But not nearly as cut), and a lot older. When you go on Atkin's, you ONLY feel a loss of energy for the first week or two at the most. Then you feel a great energy once your body adjusts, NO PAIN (Because pain comes from the inflammation of sugar) and you can build muscle very well. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ESSENTIAL CARBOHYDRATE!!!!!! IT DOESN'T EXIST. But, there is such things as essential fats and proteins. Sorry, but I've been doing this for more than 30 years now, and low carb is the MOST healthy diet anyone can be on. Carbohydrates kill the body can cause diseases!!! And soy is one of the worst things you can put into your body!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  96. Didn't they used to call this the 4 food groups?

  97. Jessi wasn't born yet

  98. Should I eat bread with every meal?

  99. He’s wrong , to say the body can’t run off fats/ketones Efficiently is total bs !!
    Ofcourse this is a old video

  100. Awesome! GOD BLESS
