High Carb Vegan Vs. Low Carb Paleo Diet – THE TRUTH Updated on October 18, 2019 By William Clement 100 Comments By William Clement 100 Comments beUtyista June 14, 2017 Thanks for this! My teacher advocates the paleo diet too and says carbs cause chronic disease…and we just talked about insulin resistance today! Haha 😂 I'm trying to debate him and show him nicely that vegan is the way to go.. Reply Robert Lemus June 18, 2017 I agree to an extent to what your saying but the study you referenced didnt account for the fact that most people become over weight eat the standard american diet eat to many carbs and fats and decide to do low carb while many vegans start off healthy. That may be an indocator for vegainism but the ketogenic diet could consist of all nutriets needed and could be plant based we just need to examine healthier subjects. Reply MyGman68 June 20, 2017 It is not a natural state of man to go to the shopping centre for food. We are designed to hunt and forage for food. Reply MyGman68 June 20, 2017 Keto diet is anti cancer. Cancer loves carbs. And you can do without food for longer. Naturally we do not have shopping centres. Keto increases good cholesterol and lowers the bad cholesterol. There was a clinical study between vegan vs Atkins and found after 12 month trial that the low carb high fat diet had lower cholesterol lower blood pressure and lost most body fat. The doctor running the trial is a vegetarian. Reply MyGman68 June 21, 2017 look at the controlled clinical trial done at Stamford university. the study was conducted by a reputable vegetarian doctor. so it is unbiased. bottom line was that the Atkins diet performed better in lowering bad cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower body fat composition. the study was done over a 12 month period. I am in Keri and my body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure KS all down and I am building lean muscle mass and I am more alert and energetic. there is nothing wrong with any diet. many roads lead to Rome Reply fanOmry July 3, 2017 1. Cells become insulin resistant when they have enough fule. 2. The Cholesterol triggered by carbs is LDL. 3. Most of what you said was fearmongering. 4. Anti-Vegan. PERFECT HEALTH Reply Carmen's Corner July 5, 2017 MyBrain was also a mess, it was like I was getting early Alzheimer when I was a vegan? Don't get me wrong, I want to be vegan, but it didn't helped me 😞 Reply clintmagican July 6, 2017 your thoughts on fasting?

He weighs 135 pounds and at the end of the experiment he had lost 2lbs. Calories in calories out is not a scientific fact especially when it comes to a diet that is still not completely understood. Everything his brother is saying is wrong. Literally everything, I'm all for people eating how they want but he is just spouting garbage like it's fact. Do some more research on the true keto diet (70% fat, 25% protein, 5% carb). Reply Amy Stanley July 11, 2017 Smart AND handsome! Reply Fake Pilot July 13, 2017 Starting to think more and more that the truth has two sides, like a coin. And your on one side of it. No one ever stops to think, could it be the COMBINATION of fat and sugar that is bad? I have tried both a vegan and a ketogenic diet. You remove A LOT of food on the vegan diet, you remove A LOT of food on the keto diet. Both avoid most processed foods (if done healthy). When you don't overeat on inflammatory foods, your body is usually strong enough to handle most of the food you put in. Reply Demented Skitzobatz33 July 15, 2017 I dont rely on what studies say theyre not accurate I believe its just dumb theorys or opinions you have to read books based on how the human body functions also people should read about diets on how they work the other thing is people need to realize our bodys are all different so thats why I dont believe in the what the media says I can pay someone to publish a fake study by saying "Did you know by eating McDonald's you loose body fat rapidly ? a study has shown a man ate 1 big mac for the whole day 5 days a week and he lost 6% body fat within a month" I bet alot of people would be dumb enough to believe that bullshit lie. Reply Body Calisthena' July 16, 2017 Do you think I should be eating whole grain for muscle building? Reply Andrew Baird July 16, 2017 Did the full on vegan thing for a year I felt very good after a month but struggled to eat enough to work physically hard 12 hours an workout could not keep weight on unless i was constantly eating a huge varaity of food to stay healthy and keep weight on. On the other hand when stopping the vegan diet within a few months i was consuming far to much shit and crap meat and junk and got fat and unhealthy like the majority of the population drinking and eating myself to deth. I have always agreed that veggies sould be the main part of the diet and are far more sustainable and that is why I anitally adopted the vegan diet, but I was never totally sold on meat being bad all together becouse like it or not vegans are a very new in the timeline and humans have always heavily relied on anamils to survive and a hart attack or diabetes was the least of ancestral cultures concerns. I now have balance I eat 2 meals between 4-6 pm each day first meal is usally a massive salad with as many vegies, greens & seeds and a small portion of salmon or a couple of eggs. 2 hours later i will eat somthing heaver of mostly 80% cooked veggies(curry, stirfry, chilli) never with added salt or sugars and with about 200g of free range organic turkey or chicken brest or fresh salmon. During the day I consume tea with ginger and lemon. Tumric, cinnimon black pepper with water and milk thistle and nettle. Apple cider with meals. No rice or grains. I get enough carbs from small amounts of sweet potato and a small amout of qunioa. I have never felt better after years of trying differnt diets and fads. This type of eating is easy to follow im never hungry build lean mussle like crazy and have a cheap grocery bill. I get being a vegan for ethical reasons with the horror show that is the meet industry but I feel good about eating only what i need of free range organic sustainable white meat and feel great and sustained eating small portions with mostly veg. Taking anything to extreams is usally the wrong way balance is the key. Oh yeh i also do not touch dairy Reply zombie gains July 18, 2017 if you're a 500 pound fat ass do keto. if you're skinny ass bitch eat some sweet potatoe. Reply Chan Meditation in the Park July 21, 2017 When I first became a vegetarian, I gained weight. Without any meat and fish, naturally I started to eat more carb. But now it's more stable… I feel healthier and I can see low carb diet is over-rated. I support for plant diet…. I became vegetarian all naturally through meditation because I didn't want to eat animal based food anymore. There was no craving for it.

Sick people lose weight, c'mon now, how could possibly think that eating meat all day is good for you? It's so ridiculous. I can't even believe people buy into it. Reply Angela Ochoa August 12, 2017 Hi thanks so much for making this video! Excellent info, jam-packed with mind blowing TRUTH and I love that!! I don't understand why as a society we have accepted so many disabling and fatal ( yet preventable! ) deseases as normal, expected, and out of our hands! 😤😤😤😯😔 I believe the reason we allow this to occur is for a number of reasons: 1) it's common…. true and unfortunate. 2) no one would actually believe how effectively and willingly big food/ag.companies poison and sicken us ( and yes that's why these illnesses have become common ) 3) there is a much bigger focus on weight loss than there is on getting healthy and eating clean – so many diligently add up the amount of calories from their processed "diet foods" and scoff at the amount of sugar in an apple ( ….eye roll 😥) and my #4 Is the one that gets me the most: Denial….Linking diet and animal food consumption to disease is basically Taboo, this is painful to say the least. If I could get through to my loved ones ( or anyone with a health problem ) I feel like so much suffering and even death can be prevented. However the abject failure to acknowledge the mere possibility that Grandma got colon cancer from too much bacon and not enough greens and fiber or Aunt Sue had Alzheimer's from red meat and dairy… to even suggest it is a bridge too far. But what if peolpe DO listen and can still get help, make changes?? How do those of us who care deeply about the relationship between health and food spread the message without getting the evil eye and the" she's out there" dismissal? Ok, thanks for letting me vent/rant!! This video was a wonderful sounding board for how I feel about this stuff 😂😁 Thanks again!! 🤗 Reply Judith Allen August 22, 2017 I literally can't sit and listen to this bias video. I personally am not low carb high fat, but there is absolutely no doubt that reducing "carbs" is good for you. This is, if you have a high fat and high carb diet; meaning you are a fat storing machine. Not to mention!… there is TWO types of cholesterol, that the "common" person will not know about, and clearly you's don't. LDL and HDL. Funny enough, one of these cholesterols is actually so good to have and required for good health to have; a diet high in GOOD, NATURAL fat will produce this good cholesterol. If you do a high fat lower carb way of eating correctly, you get abundant of the required nutrients we need to function, while functioning in a fat burning state. I personally don't feel the need for a high fat lower carb way of eating, but some people physically don't function well in all ways on a high carb diet. Not to mention, it is so possible to do high fat low carb plant based. Also, reducing complex carbs such as bread, rice and pasta is going to be better for you're blood sugar balances. The more our bodies produce insulin, the more immune our blood cells become to it, which is what leads to diabetes. This is why people say whole grain is better, as it causes slow insulin spikes, but I feel it's personally better to cut it out completely as we get enough carbs from fruit and veg. Also, it's totally unprofessional to sit and promote scientific papers that support you're argument and then sit and flaw papers with opposing views. That's manipulative to your audience, and you shouldn't have any bias say when it comes to science. Yours sincerely, med student.

Reply Dominic Teresi September 1, 2017 such bashing on keto with no real science. im sorry your so stupid Reply Eitan Rosa September 1, 2017 So inaccurate! But it's a bit old, maybe they honesty didn't have the info then. Reply Marco Palladino September 2, 2017 Lowcarb promoters, Atkins and so on..they are criminals for my experience, I can tell after 2 years on such regimens..my god I still can't believe I did stick on it for so long. Anxiety, stress, letargy, low body temperature…and all the thyroid and other damages this kind of diets do I can testimony. Such diets inevitably go on high amounts of animal foods that on long term mess your health in so many ways but at beginning make you lose fat which is a bad thing since it resembles an healthy progress but on contrary you are just starving yourself. Plant based whole food veggies, starch, fruits (not too much fruits for me or I get bloated), legumes: it took months to cure the damages of lowcarb but now my energy is going very high, 2 workouts a day and I am 45. Thanks for making good information Jon, I do really appreciate the way you present things, good work! Reply M Francois September 5, 2017 I personally eat carbs, and eat meat but everything in moderation, on another hand my grampa whole his life ate mostly meat, fat and dairy products and he is turning 96 this year. He is in great shape, no gray hair , no any health issues, never had seasonal cold or any other problem. One thing that I didn mention is that he grow up and still lives in our small village in eastern europe, growing hes own food, living very simple life, like never wacthed TV, never heard about internet and stuff like that. Maybe thats the reason as well… who knows. I personally listen my own body now, and eat what makes me feal great. I notice protein dont bothers me at all, but lots plants does. Gluten and Dairy is worst for me, since I removed those ones from my diet i felt better than ever in my life. Also grains in general doesn't agree with me, beans too, lots of seeds as well. I really believe we should eat how our ancestors ate, and mine ate mostly meat and fat and i definitely feel better on that kind of diet. I would like to go vegan but every time i go vegan I become very sick. So my advice is start like one year elimination diet and see how you react on certain foods and mark it down, you will be amazed how many foods can affect you in different ways. Reply MATTHEW TSIPRAS September 13, 2017 While low-carb diet advocates are correct about avoiding simple carbohydrates like table sugar, low-fat diet advocates are correct about avoiding saturated fat and cholesterol as well. Saturated fat, cholesterol, and simple carbs are bad for our health, for various reasons. Instead of going for an “extreme” diet, whether it be low-carb or low-fat, why not eat a diet that is based on the right kinds of fats and the right kinds of carbs? What matters more to our overall health is the sources of fats and carbs we are eating, not avoiding carbs and fats entirely. At the end of the day, a calorie is a calorie: "We conclude that a calorie is a calorie. From a purely thermodynamic point of view, this is clear because the human body or, indeed, any living organism cannot create or destroy energy but can only convert energy from one form to another. In comparing energy balance between dietary treatments, however, it must be remembered that the units of dietary energy are metabolizable energy and not gross energy. This is perhaps unfortunate because metabolizable energy is much more difficult to determine than is gross energy, because the Atwater factors used in calculating metabolizable energy are not exact. As such, our food tables are not perfect, and small errors are associated with their use. In addition, we concede that the substitution of one macronutrient for another has been shown in some studies to have a statistically significant effect on the expenditure half of the energy balance equation. This has been observed most often for high-protein diets. Evidence indicates, however, that the difference in energy expenditure is small and can potentially account for less than one-third of the differences in weight loss that have been reported between high-protein or low-carbohydrate diets and high-carbohydrate or low-fat diets. As such, a calorie is a calorie."http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/79/5/899S.full Reply Paul Olsen September 17, 2017 0:13 titty slap. Reply Paul Olsen September 17, 2017 leo is soooooooooo cute!

Reply atila correia October 30, 2017 Guys, the problem with the low carb diets is that people want to make a case where it's a natural state of the body when in truth it's not. It's a powerful "house cleaner", but it should not be followed long term. You guys have to understand that humans have been using these mechanisms for ages. They would fast, go on certain periods where there were not so easily accessible food, so they would have to kill some animals to provide their food. The problem is that people made this A RULE and they want to consume meat every single day, which is disruptive.The problem nowadays is that low carb diet means that people will increase their intake of BAD FATS (bacon, butter, oils, etc ) and BAD PROTEINS ( corn fed animals ). Plain simple.So please BE INFORMATIVE about that. Reply Sicarius Peremo November 3, 2017 Absolutely not true, the body does not require a single gram of carbs! Lower expected lifespan?

Very narrow minded way of looking at human physiology. Reply noproofforjesus December 6, 2017 Wow this guy thinks you lose weight on a low carb high fat diet because you are starving your body from its energy source.Some Quick facts1) fat is the body’s stored energy source to keep you alive is you are starving 2) fats are more calorie dense 1 gram of fat is 9 calories compared to 1 gram of carbohydrates is 4 calories.So the idea you lose weight do to starving the body of energy is fucking retarded. What is really happened is you are controlling your insulin releases. When the body release insulin it halts all fat burning though multiple paths ways. Why is this you ask? Insulin is a transport hormone that is released is mostly released when you eat carbohydrates as they increase blood sugar to toxic levels so the body must clear them as they are toxic to the brain. There is only a few grams of actual stable blood sugar allowed in the blood at any one time once this level exceeds said level the body release insulin this spike of insulin floods the blood stream grabbing up all the sugar you just put into your blood stream then it trys to Store it in the liver then in the muscle of it can’t do this fast enough as it can’t most of the time it bonds it this a glycerol molecules and stores it as fat.Quick science lesson for this guy. So we can see one major reason fat release is shut down there is no reason to release stored fat into the blood system if you are constantly spiking your blood sugar. With low carb you don’t have this and the body’s main source of fuel is fat you ingested and stored body fat. You also lack any insulin spikes that shut of your gh production during the day. Gh and insulin Are opposing hormones if she insulin is present gh is not. Gh is your fat burning hormone. Yet another reason you burn more fat on low carb diets. 3) here’s another reason this guy has no clue what he is talking about it is well documented that you can eat over your BMR while on low carb and still lose body fat faster with less muscle loss then you could eating a low calorie regular carbohydrates diet. Why because your using biochemistry and science of how the body use energy sources compared to restrictive eating habits. Oh and were is he getting these supposed sources stating low carb practitioners are getting disease or dieting before high carb dieters. He has no such study’s he is using study’s done on people eating an average American diet and suggesting since they eat meat then low carb diet with moderate protein are exactly the same as fat and sugar laden diets of the regular American. Wtf epic fail. Reply Carmen H December 6, 2017 this is really late but what do you think of a low/moderate carb vegan diet? Reply neoom December 8, 2017 You guys are really knowledgeable and admire you guys a lot! Id like to know your opinion on intermittent fasting!

I was really not convinced to go on the keto diet especially since I had tried it about 6 months ago and had dangerously high heart palpitations. I have been meat free for 9 years. your brother is very intelligent and well spoken. Thank you both so much. Reply William McLeod December 21, 2017 Robert Lustig has proved pretty conclusively that fructose is worse than sucrose, and may operate within the liver as a toxin. And in any case, after the liver gets ahold of it, there's no difference, because it all gets turned into glucose. Slice of store-bought cake? Metabolized into glucose and glycogen. Super-"healthy" organic whole wheat bread? Metabolized into glucose and stored as glycogen. There's no difference from a macronutritional perspective, though fructose is worse from a metabolic one if you look at liver function. The information you're basing all of your ideas on is dated, and biased science. Google "sugar industry hid cancer link" and you'll find a ton of links. All of that said, it's still possible to do a low carb diet that is plant based, though that gets much harder when you try to take LCHF to the keto extreme, though vegan keto is possible for folks who are extremely disciplined. So there's no natural conflict between the idea of having a plant-based diet and a diet that sources plant-based macronutrients. As far as dangerous fats are concerned, while a small amount of trans fats occur in ruminant animals, by far the biggest source is over-processed vegetable fats. Reply PierreB December 22, 2017 It is always good to see healthy people talking about health. Far better than the other way around. Reply Daan Mateo Slomczewski December 30, 2017 What a bullshit !

I can be a junk eating high carb vegan and stay fat or I can be a whole foods non processed high carb vegan and actually be healthy and at my normal weight. People in general are lazy when it comes to feeding themselves so they grab the processed foods like breads (donuts, pop tarts,raman noodles,even processed vegan foods) . It's very important that we vegans who want to be not only advocates for animals but are really concerned about our health that we rat a non processed whole foods diet.

People who are very active (e.g. high performance athletes, workers with physically very demanding jobs) may do fine with a lot of carbs, although this is not true for all of them. People with sedentary jobs, people who are dealing with obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes or depression etc. and generally people whose metabolism is out of whack (and that is most of us) are much better off on a low-carb diet. High carbers are almost always slaves to their cravings, and the only way to get those under control is to cut out the carbs. Reply T January 30, 2018 I'm going to have to disagree with your video, I have been on the keto diet for a few months and have lost 20 lbs, I have also gained muscle, I never feel tired any more, my bad cholesterol levels are down, and I am always able to finish my workouts and lift heavier. Reply T January 30, 2018 My wife developed horrible problems going vegan. It was extremely hard on her body. Once she switched to the keto diet her health improved greatly, and so did her energy levels. When you're on a ketogenic diet you get your carbohydrates from vegetables. Also, there is no fruit or vegetable on the face of the planet that can give you the amino acids that you get from meat that your brain desperately needs. Reply Neeraj Lohchab January 31, 2018 oh dear same old calories deficit and calorie in< calorie out stuff. Try selling this high carb dream to a 110 kg overweight person who just cannot lose weight. Diet advice from shredded people, no thanks. give me an everyday person who tried lowered or low carb ( with veggies ) and had blood work reports to show an improved lipid profile and improved insulin tolerance. Also people who worked hard in the kitchen to make meals that they can eat and enjoy and sustain over a long period of time. Modern civilization with energy dense food all around, all yea,r is not what we evolved for. Glycogen stores and fat stores were not forever as we would run out of immediate food sources and fall back on our fat sources for energy. But not today. Now there never is a time a person can't eat. so the additional blood glucose stays locked in the fat cells forever. this plentiful food processed beyond recognition is an artificial state borne after the agricultural revolution over 200 years if not less. we evolved over thousands of years.

Reply FabFour Fever April 7, 2018 I think the fasting state is very healthy, actually.. very good for the body.. but.. not the forced state induced as a result of a low carb or keto diet..because you're taking in tons of fat and keeping your digestive system running. A true fasting state puts you in a natural state of ketosis which allows your digestive system rest and promotes detoxification and rejuvenation of the body. It also helps heal food addiction and makes you more metabolically flexible. So..I think there should be a distinction made between nutritional ketosis and the natural ketosis that occurs with fasting (and which can also be achieved through intermittent fasting). Btw, I'm vegan. 😉 Nice video. 😊 xx Reply Sebastian April 13, 2018 Not all calories are the same. If you eat Big Macs it's not the same as eating healthy fats 'or' carbs. I eat low carb, moderate but healthy meat, healthy fats and loads of nutrient dense plant based foods, I do not eat a low calorie diet. Five months in and I feel great, have lots of energy and have lost lots of weight (during the British winter) with little exercise. I once lost a lot of weight on a high carb diet when I was doing a lot of cycling but I put it back on in the winter as wasn't cycling so much and would get sugar cravings. I would say – do what works for you. In my case, Keto all the way! Reply Rena May 4, 2018 He's right. I work in a school for Public Health and a lot of the research that they do here is recycled. Reply Jay West May 7, 2018 I'd rather do more of a high protein, low carb diet. High carb vegan you're basically always hungry and you end up snacking on crap. I wouldn't eat fatty meats. If I had the choice out of a good veggie burger and fatty red meat, I'll choose the veggie burger. Reply Shie H. May 17, 2018 What do you think is a low carb diet? It’s really just a no grain, low or no cereal diet. It IS plant based – as in non starchy veggies form the bulk of what is eaten. It is satiating – and high carb causes so many to feel hungry. Before you disagree with someone, you need to better understand what it is. It isn’t eating butter and steak all day. My breakfast? 2 eggs, avocado and tomato with some olive oil. My lunch? A huuuuuge salad, often topped with some form of protein (tuna, salmon or sardines). My dinner? A chicken thigh, grilled asparagus, cauliflower “rice” with a bit of butter. Dessert is a small portion of berries with yogurt. Snacks – often nuts and seeds. Yes, I eat animal products and I feel amazing. It is the only diet that controls my weight and allows me to keep my caloric needs in check. Those studies you site? Nothing – and I do mean nothing – has been done to compare a whole food vegan diet to a whole food omnivore diet. I do have a problem with keto for non-medical reasons (as I do with severe fat restriction), but low carb? Totally fine and likely very healthy. Don’t confuse your ethics and feelings with what is nutritional. Oh and my gestational diabetes kept 100% in check with diet and exercise (I usually am around 60 grams net carbs a day). In my last pregnancy, I followed a 175 total carb diet recommended by the ADA (all from real food – sweet potatoes and apples and such) and my numbers were horrific, I was constantly hungry and miserable and I gained waaaay too much weight. But according to you I was just eating too much and exercising too little, right? Um. No. Reply Letícia Costa May 25, 2018 Really? Reply Stop-Motion Wizard May 27, 2018 Very informative. Thanks guys Reply 24patj June 9, 2018 for be in a low carb diet right now it's the diet who work the most for me. My stomach is really sensible I throw up at nothing and I'm lactose intolerant. I need take probiotic everyday but I cant digest anything properly no matter what I eat. I ate at least 5 cup of vegetable and Im not restrict myself for any vegetable and for the quantity everyday and work out everyday. I need to say that I do restrict myself for some aliment ( bread rice pasta) but I still eat a little of those every week because I dont restrict myself too much. Also recently I saw when I ate too much of those aliment I feel sick. Same thing with vegetable for some reason when I ate too much I get sick so it's really hard for me to find the great balance. Since I'm a low carb diet I feel so much more light and my stomach hurt and except of my bad stomach I have not health problem. I also get that I vegan diet is really great for your body but I know for me its will not work for me since of my stomach problem they have so many thing I cant eat already or too much of something. For the conclusion I think its depend how you do your diet and how much you restrict yourself and also no matter what diet you do I think you be follow by a profesionnal Reply WildFeather June 20, 2018 Channels like this are good, no faggy sjw shit tucked in, just the points.

Reply آكل الدهون August 17, 2018 Man can not digest plan fiber, that's why your food is just starch and sugar Reply Chris Neethling October 10, 2018 So, we should go ahead and eat all the junk want to? Sorry guys, you completely ignore the fact that some people are insulin sensitive but most are not – in varying degrees. The research is now overwhelmingly in favour of LCHF. And contrary to what you say, the meta-analyses for long term LCHF is now well established. Reply neagu stefan October 15, 2018 Why I lose weight while I'm Paleo ? Reply neagu stefan October 15, 2018 I'm going to tell my GF carbs is good and for sure im 100% she will dye,give me abrake with this shit Reply neagu stefan October 15, 2018 If you eat a big Mac is 70% bred and 30% meat and is fried meat and that is not healthy,all studies are not from Paleo are from omnivores and they blame meat while grains are the problems Reply neagu stefan October 15, 2018 I wanna see a Paleo diet studies in the future Reply neagu stefan October 15, 2018 You are trash carbs or the worst of all all all food is sugar any any diabetic person will dye from that while fats don't spike glucose so bad,I tell you to do this tell a diabetic persoane to eat 100 grams of bacon vs sugar and Wich one will be bad even cake or chocolate has very high amount of sugar Reply toti35 December 24, 2018 if people start paying attention to all diets in the world, they might be healthy in their bodies but crazy in their minds, people can go nuts with this topics. I am telling you something, balance is the key. eat smaller portions, reduce frequency of meats, small portions carbs, reduce or eliminate sugar, exercise more. Reply A Van Called Rupert December 27, 2018 I just go with what makes me feel good. If I live on meaty salads drenched in olive oil I am dench and full of anergy. If I start eating grains and potato I get fat and feel like bloated dog shit . My cholesterol has always been fine either way . Reply Raven Hartinger March 25, 2019 I went keto after signs of insulin resistance, and really screwed myself up. Pancreatitis (may be chronic, need more results), and though it leveled out my hormones, keto masked so many other issues. I've been low fat high carb whole foods vegan for about 3 weeks and feel great. But I'm scared as to what it will do to my hormones. I hope I can continue on this path because it's nowhere near as restrictive as keto.

Reply TATTOEDVEGAN July 21, 2019 👏👏👏 Reply Ale Art July 28, 2019 In my experience I have done a Low carb (like paleo) for 1 year and the blood's exam shows hight cholesterol, GH, prolactine….
