BodyBuilder Diet – The CARB CONFUSION Principle Updated on October 25, 2019 By William Clement 100 Comments By William Clement 100 Comments Higuma June 2, 2017 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. Reply dad lad June 9, 2017 a video on ketosis diet Reply gazplayz June 11, 2017 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. Reply Cranjis McBasketball June 21, 2017 I want fuckin chineese!

Reply Fernie Marquez October 30, 2017 Do you have to track your macros? Reply Marius M November 12, 2017 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 .. Reply nomar mar November 16, 2017 Jeff used the marker to record this video Reply Mitchell Kalina November 22, 2017 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 Reply Radioactive Lemon November 24, 2017 It's nice to see Jeff in a shirt Reply Seanoftheshredz Channel December 20, 2017 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. Reply Charles Wright December 21, 2017 The confusion is mostly about how much is too much or not enough .. I’m afraid that vid addressed nothing Reply Deep_Freeze_DF December 22, 2017 Waiting for that big silver phone to ring with the Avengers on the other line summoning Jeff!

Reply Jo Go February 23, 2018 The only good carbs are sweet patatoes etc., no bread pasta quinoa… Reply nelliediaz2001 March 1, 2018 I like the old school phone on the wall Reply Alex March 7, 2018 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 Reply MUSAB LEBRON March 7, 2018 he has a video on everything Keep it up Reply Mark Fagan March 12, 2018 Jeff's videos from 6 years ago make more sense than half the nonsense uploaded by these fitness experts today. Reply Jethro Tool March 16, 2018 Jeff is a hardgainer. He can’t relate to people with insulin resistance Reply Matthew Espinoza March 19, 2018 I haven't ate in two weeks… I had to watch this first and left it on my watch later ☹️ Reply elfunkeado March 28, 2018 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. 👊 Reply Sean KMG April 14, 2018 4:35, ghost moves chair. 👀 Reply humangasourous April 23, 2018 Hi Jeff!

Or supplements? Reply x ai June 1, 2018 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. Reply Ares Apollo June 6, 2018 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. Reply Randy NoLastName June 13, 2018 You shared a good dinner plate. What about the other meals? Reply Dan Olympiadis June 16, 2018 Great info, as usual. Thank you Reply DJ4NTI June 18, 2018 I just came off keto and I approve this message. Reply ccmkoho July 20, 2018 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. Reply D4R7L July 22, 2018 Dosent soy lower testosterone?

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..

Dropped 20 lbs… Chest and biceps are popping, lats double in size, and just looking good. If you wanna lose weight, drop the carbs Reply Nilo 6927 October 13, 2018 Great content Jeff as always very informative Reply viewer October 20, 2018 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? Reply Bryan F November 13, 2018 I still haven't technically watched this video, and I haven't eaten in months! Reply spookybuk December 9, 2018 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. Reply just_a_ guy December 22, 2018 He eats that 5x a day ?? Reply Martin S. December 24, 2018 muy bueno!!!! Reply royalrod _ January 22, 2019 I literally put my fork down before eating a plate of spinach noodles and beans Reply Josh Madsen February 5, 2019 Did you guys see that ghost? Reply Hotwheel66 February 5, 2019 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. Reply OBLITAS DEBANI February 20, 2019 watching this while eating Reply GStar March 17, 2019 His home looks like a hotel Reply Joseph English March 30, 2019 I love your program. God is working through you. Keep up the great work!!!! Reply Patrick S April 6, 2019 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. Reply Armedfireman April 17, 2019 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. Reply Lee Churchill May 4, 2019 It"s good to rotate and vary carb sources, like on that plate. Reply Anjum Parr May 24, 2019 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! 💪🏽✌🏽 Reply ooo ooo May 24, 2019 Eating is KILLING YOUR GAINS Reply Tom Henderson May 27, 2019 This video was vary helpful and explains why I’m exhausted most of the time Reply Adolfo Estella June 8, 2019 Your house looks haunted sorry Reply Eli Hal June 11, 2019 What's that thing on the wall?!!!!! Reply Simply Drug Addict June 11, 2019 i am confusion Reply GᗩY ᖇETᗩᖇᗪ June 12, 2019 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. Reply Chinh Phan June 13, 2019 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. Reply AmMirai _ June 24, 2019 2019 Reply κυbrὶqミイラ June 28, 2019 20 years no eating since 92 was pretty hard .. Reply Vedant Jhingran July 3, 2019 2:55 Jeff is so dedicated that he drinks water even in beer mug. Reply Disciple of The Way July 18, 2019 A man's man kinda guy! Simple & to the point! Reply pandie July 26, 2019 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 Reply hamana tibi July 26, 2019 Could you do a video about carbs cycle please? Reply stevae wei August 13, 2019 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply Joe Bell August 22, 2019 Didn't they used to call this the 4 food groups? Reply Rahul Prajapat August 24, 2019 Jessi wasn't born yet Reply Big Gaming September 8, 2019 Should I eat bread with every meal? Reply Justin Owens September 27, 2019 He’s wrong , to say the body can’t run off fats/ketones Efficiently is total bs !! Ofcourse this is a old video Reply Michael Green October 6, 2019 Awesome!
