Plant-based Atkins diet Updated on October 23, 2019 By William Clement 39 Comments By William Clement 39 Comments Patrick C. March 30, 2012 Outstanding! Reply cobblestonestreets April 28, 2012 How does a high carb vegan diet compare? Reply NutritionFacts.org May 4, 2012 It'd be wonderful if you could post it to this specific video on nutritionfacts. org. This way more people benefit from the response, and I can actually provide you with links (which I can't do on Youtube). Thanks! Reply PDZ1122 May 5, 2012 OK, so how do you get lots of protein and low carbs from plants?? It's hard enough getting enough protein without an excess of carbs. Reply PDZ1122 October 8, 2012 Yeah, right – in my experience the majority of athletes are lean and strong (lots of protein, low carb diets) and most vegetarians I know are skinny-fat and weak. If you are remotely active and work out and got the amount of protein needed purely from a plant diet, you would simply get fat from all the extra carbs you'd be eating. Show me a plant based diet that gives you a 40/40/20% of protein, carbs and fat. Only possible if you supplement with tons of soy protein powder. Reply MNveg November 15, 2012 The Fung study is carefully controlled and as good as nutrition research gets. All of your biomarkers are second-tier. Low carb is never able to lower LDL, which is widely considered the best biomarker for heart disease. High LDL, regardless of particle size, is linked to increased risk for heart disease. Reply AntiCarnist January 6, 2013 I think it's remarkable how the low carbers try to keep people in the dark about Eco-Atkins. The only low carb guru I've heard mention it is Jimmy Moore, who called it a "Vegan Imposter." I think the low carbers care more about defending animal exploitation than they do about promoting carbohydrate restriction. Reply Mark Kislich August 7, 2013 HIGHLY interesting… Reply heirloomvegan August 10, 2013 Sorry, but the majority of athletes (ask any Tour de France rider, runner, even football player) eat high carb diets. At least 60 percent of calories coming from carbs. What do cyclists eat during rides? Energy gel made of sugar. What do runners do the night before a race? Carb load. An athlete who eats a meal of steak the night before a race, or even a meal of walnuts is going to run out of energy, perform badly and slowly, and maybe even injure themselves. Reply PDZ1122 August 11, 2013 Of course athletes require carbs – for training and competition. They eat enough carbs to supply their energy demands, which are high. But athletes also require muscle (except for long distance runners) and building muscle on a purely plant based diet is simply a lot more difficult. And apart from real athletes, every vegetarian I know, including the producer of these videos, is basically a weed with extremely low muscle mass and most carry more than average body fat. Reply dhruba kandel August 19, 2013 My coworkers laughed when I told them I was going to burn fat with Cosmos Fat Loss, but then they saw the results. Go google Cosmos Fat Loss to see their reaction. Reply chiyerano August 28, 2013 Yes! This is good, very good indeed and supports what I've thought for a long time now. Reply Daniel Ananda Alexander January 28, 2014 This video ought to be viewed by all members of the plant based community; it has the potential to unite instead of divide our movement; by showing that the real cause of degeneration and disease is the consumption of animal products! Reply PercivalBlakeney June 12, 2014 What a video!!Nice one Dr. G.🙂 Reply Sabatheus October 23, 2014 You can't get any more concise than that: Eat animals or their secretions for any length of time…and it kills you. I think we have the "ability" to eat animals because we might need to in an emergency–as in, a survival situation. That's just a theory. Reply Calvin February 3, 2015 I'm currently on an eco Atkins diet at the moment, but I use vegan protein powder to get my plant proteins. I don't really understand how plant proteins are better than animal protein given protein is protein. I thought the two were the same. Reply Ruth Peleg March 30, 2015 How does a whole plant foods diet compare to the eco atkins? Reply CISMD May 12, 2015 Sow what about plant-based low carb vs plant based high carb? Reply A M May 30, 2015 This video points to a low-sugar raw vegan diet as the optimal diet for environmental sustainability, health and longevity. A diet rich in the antioxidants, enzymes, and chlorophyll or raw vegetables, while low in sugars/starches, protein and saturated fats trumps all others. But few people want to hear that "noise." :o) Reply sooooooooDark November 23, 2015 low carb = few calories of carbsorlow carb = low percentage of taken in calories from carbs? Reply Justin C. G. Garrett March 23, 2016 That's awesome! Still don't want to part with my greens, though lol. Reply freedomsadvocate April 8, 2016 Question: Was it High Fat and High Protein in both cases? If so, that may be a cop-out. I have seen it in many criticisms of "atkins". My interest is in a simply High Fat and Low Carb diet. From what I understand, they are fundamentally different. Reply Jay Andrews August 31, 2016 Did they eliminate anyone who was already morbidly obese from the group on the Adkins type diet? Reply Quantum Chang April 18, 2017 So, this means Dr. John McDougall's starch-based whole food vegan diet is healthy not because of the high carbohydrate content but simply because it is sourced from vegan whole foods and not from animal foods. Reply BoxFanKlik June 8, 2017 Eating lots of soy burgers and soy products? Isnt that as bad as animal products? Sorry Im just wondering how healthy this is, cuz eating loads of vegan burgers sounds like some fun XD Reply Jimmi Andersen June 29, 2017 But why? I thought a lot of fat was bad. I'm so confused. Reply Phi1eap September 14, 2017 Or maybe it's about how meat is prepared, from feeding animals, to frying and oxydizing oil and fat…Inspite animal protein is overrated, In vitro 'clean'(of viruses) meat is more probabilistic future than vegan socieity. Reply Eelke Aptroot November 12, 2017 If by regular diet they mean standard American, animal-based low carb diets must be really unhealthy… Reply lisa celeste February 18, 2018 I went from high carb veg to low carb veg and my RLS has finally gone away…. I'm not ravenously hungry all the time and i just feel so much better. I'm sticking with it. Reply Mark Robertson March 4, 2018 What about an episcopalian based low carb diet? Is there any significant difference between sea and non sea animals? Reply the brink May 25, 2018 one month study is not relevant. Lets see a 5 year study. Reply Jcorb June 13, 2018 This is a relief for me to hear because I find that I need to eat a certain amount of calories each meal and that it's very hard to get enough calories in on a high carb plant-based diet because the predominantly carbohydrate plant foods are so low in calories that I end up having to eat such a huge amount of food. Whereas with a higher fat plant-based diet it's much easier to get calories in with a much smaller volume of food because the plant foods high in fats (like from avocadoes and nuts) contain a much higher amount of calories. Reply Laughing Jim September 10, 2018 Swag Reply Diana A October 29, 2018 k you should do a followup vithis topic. Vegan keto is becoming very popular! Reply Dani N November 14, 2018 Thank you for all of the diligent work! I love watching your videos to learn more about the newest studies on nutrition. I follow Eco-Atkins diet for the most part. I don’t do the protein as high (80g instead of 120) but I keep my carbs between 100g-128g and my saturated fat between 11-13g. My father’s family has problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes and my mother’s is full of those whiskey drinking and bacon eating old folks that live forever lol. I’m not quite 30 but… I’d rather not test my 50/50 shot. Preventative medicine! I eat a mostly whole food diet that focuses on low GI/GL foods and eats higher carb stuff as a treat or snack. That being said I have a deep fondness for sweet potatoes and I love that they are in season!!! Reply Nancy P. January 12, 2019 Carb needs to be clearly defined here because all plant foods are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrate, fat, and protein are nutrients, not food groups. Popular nutrition culture, not typically science-based, has falsely created food groups that don't really exist for the purpose of over-simplifying things for what purpose I don't know. But this misleading, over-simplified popular nonscience sells a lot of stuff. I'm assuming in this video that 'carbs' actually refers to refined grains, and flour-based foods. Reply Ulick Mikkeline July 3, 2019 Well ain't that some shit Reply My Account July 3, 2019 1:04 Vegan virgin, why that's exactly what you sound like Reply Karin Avramzon August 12, 2019 Ok, but what about comparing it to the standard plant based diet…???How did they do comparing to them…?
