The Most DANGEROUS Diet in the World (STOP!)

What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, This is going to be one of the most important
videos that I ever make. As a matter of fact, I want you to do me one
favor and lean in nice, and close, and listen to every, single word I say. I promise you, this is going to be very, very
important. It’s going to help you forever. Especially if you’ve been dealing with a
weight problem. Especially if you’ve been trying lots of
diets. Don’t even get me started on that word yet. I’ll get to that, though. The fact is, I’m a big believer in the power
of nutrition. I’m a big believer in the fact that what
you put in your body determines, not just how you look, but how you feel, and how healthy
you are. Not just on a day to day, week to week, month
to month, year to year basis. But on a minute to minute basis. We know that, right? We’ve put things in our body that have changed
the way we feel pretty quickly. We need to understand that power can never
be underestimated. I think a lot of us do. That’s why, often times, we reach out and
realize that we need to do something about our nutrition. I’m going to say, what we put in our body
every day might be one of the most important decisions we make every, single day. Which brings me back to that concept of diets. Guys, you know how I feel about that term,
if you’ve watched this channel for any length of time. Realize, I don’t like the term. I hate it because a diet sounds temporary. A diet means something temporary. “I’m going on a diet”, means “I’m
going to be off of that soon.” You need to realize the long-term, the long
game here, is the only thing that ever matters when it comes to looking and feeling the way
you should from now until the day you die. Which, I hope – if you do it right – is
a long time from now. God willing. Now, there are dangerous diets. There are a lot of different diets we could
follow. Let’s cover some of them. The Paleo Diet. The South Beach Diet. The Atkins Diet. The Grapefruit Diet. The Coffee & Cocaine Diet. Right? People probably used s**t like that for a
long time. The fact is, anything that’s earned the
word ‘diet’ after its name; it probably works. It works. I can guarantee you, they work. They all create weight loss. They all do. They wouldn’t have ever gotten to the point
where they earned the ‘diet’ title if they hadn’t worked for a lot of people. But I don’t gage short-term results for
a working diet. I gage your ability to stick to it for a lifetime
as the only criteria for whether something is worthwhile. For me, the most dangerous diet in the world
is the one you can’t stick to. That could be all of them. It could be all of them. Beyond that, even when you decide that you
need to do something about your nutrition – let’s start using the word right because
we’ve got to get rid of that word ‘diet’. If you decide you need to do something about
your nutrition how do you go about it? Do you just jump head-first into it? Because that’s a major mistake. That could be why you’re failing in the
first place. Let’s play trainer for a second. We’re all going to get a chance. Let’s take a step into Jeff Cavaliere’s
shoes; the trainer. So, I have a client that walks into the gym
today. We’re making this up. 320lbs, the guy is 49 years old, never worked
out a day in his life, diabetic, body fat at least 40%, and he’s going to train. I have two options of programs I can give
him. Option A. You get to pick here, listen close. Option A. He’s going to do squat, bench,
and deadlifts. We’re going to work in the three to five
rep max. We’re going to throw in some palm squats,
just to make sure we’re reinforcing his ability to hold those things, and a lot of
eccentric overload. I think that’s going to be helpful. Then some plyometrics at the end and maybe
a little bit of kickboxing, just for some conditioning. That’s Option A. Option B is, we’re going
to start really, really easy on this guy. We’re going to do a little bit of flexibility
training, a lot of education early on, a little bit of mobility work – I’m sure those
joints could probably use a little bit of help. And then maybe start introducing the concept
of resistance bands. So, we want him to utilize his own bodyweight
– which is heavy – or some additional weight through weights and barbells, at this
point in time. Which one would you go with? Which would you think is the more appropriate
for that individual? There’s always the A-hole of the bunch who’s
going to say, “Option A”, but we should all know that Option B is where we need to
go. Especially if you’ve been watching this
channel. You probably realize that’s probably a better
route. At least taking a step off the gas for that
guy. So why is it when we decide we’re going
to do something about our nutrition, and we decide to go down this ‘diet’ road, why
do we jump into it head first? Why do we go from 0 to 60? Who thinks that going from 0-60 makes anymore
sense, nutritionally, as it does when you’re taking your first crack at weight training? It doesn’t. It’s setting yourself up for failure. I can give you a couple examples of that. Let’s take a popular diet regimen right
now. I’m going with the Keto Diet. Guys, I have nothing against a particular
form of eating because if you can turn that form of eating into a lifestyle – a lifelong
style of eating – then I am thrilled. I don’t have one way – and I’m going
to get to this in a second, too – one way of demanding that you eat. That is not my methodology. As a matter of fact, I think anyone that tells
you that there’s ‘only one way to do it, and this is the only way you should do it’
and gets ‘cult-like’ – I guess, the ‘keto cult’, who’s going to tell you
‘this is the only way to do it and everything else is wrong’; you’ve got to run as fast
as you can away from that person. But back to that. Ketogenic dieting requires that you drop your
carbohydrate intake pretty severely, to about 10% or less of your total, overall caloric
intake for the day. Now, let’s put ourselves back in the shoes
of that individual that was overweight, who needs to lose weight – which is a lot of
people. Do you think that person is sitting there
eating 10% or less of carbohydrates right now? No. I can guarantee you, they’re probably eating,
in excess, of 60% carbohydrates, if not more. So, to go from 60% or 70% of your overall
caloric intake from carbohydrates down to 10% or less; how logical is that? So, cut all that out. That’s it. Diet starts on Monday. You’re going to cut it all out. We’re going to get you right down here. You’re going to do great. This is going to be perfect for you. You’re going to change your way of fueling
your body. We’re going from carbohydrates to ketones. You’re good to go. Let’s go. You think that’s got a likelihood of success? Will he lose weight? Of course, he will! It’s a diet. It’s earned its title. It’s going to work. Long term? I doubt it. If it does, then great. He’s found a lifestyle that he can do. Now it’s worthwhile. But if you jump into it like that it’s not
going to work. So, what would I do in a situation like this? I’d recommend something different. You want to stick to the diets? Go to something like the Zone Diet. 30/30/40. At least see if you can stick to that first. Get yourself down, knowing that you’re heading
toward keto. But you don’t just down there. You try to take an approach that’s a moderate
step in the right direction, to at least set yourself up to become more accustomed to that. As opposed to jumping right in. It’s going to have the same impact to be
able to take these things in stages. I understand that we’re not getting the
same outcome that a Ketogenic Diet is creating, in terms of your body’s preferred fuel. I understand that. That’s not getting there via a 30/30/40
diet. But from a standpoint of an individual being
able to stick to that, they need to be able to take some sort of moderate step. Even when I first started my full reign of
eating better, and healthier, and turning it into a lifestyle I went from a really crappy
diet of a lot of sugary foods, and sweets, and things that are not part of an athlete’s
diet. Not on a consistent basis, they aren’t. And I made small changes. Then, when I was able to maintain that, and
I started to see results I went back again. I made additional, small changes. Then I went back again and made additional,
small changes. You know what I didn’t care about? Instant results. I never cared about instant results. I was in it for the lifelong process. I understood that, if I did it right once
I’d never have to do this again. But as a result of people jumping in too strong,
too fast to a diet they can’t stick with, every six months, every eight months, every
12 months, whatever it is; they’re back doing it again, and again. You know why it’s dangerous? It’s extremely dangerous because every time
you fail you’re doing a lot of things that are setting the stage for you to continue
to fail. You’re starting to convince yourself that
you can’t stick to anything. You’re starting to convince yourself that
‘dieting is not for you’. You either give up at that point – right? A lot of people do! “I’m done with this. I can’t do it.” Or you get more desperate, you get less patient,
less willing to go through that adaptive process, and you jump into the next one full force
ahead, and it fails again, and it fails again, and it fails again. And guess what? You know what’s happening during this whole
time? You’re also getting older. We’re all getting – one thing we can’t
stop is the aging process. As we get older, and older, and older it gets
more, and more, and more difficult to win this battle. I’m not saying it’s impossible. We’ve got lots of guys – ATHLEANX has
proven it – lots of guys that can do this at an advanced age and look unbelievable. But it does become more challenging. You have to become more and more committed. It’s not as easy as it was when you were
in your teens and 20’s. We all know that. So, what I’m pleading for you to do is try
to make this intervention with the one mindset of getting off this damned diet rollercoaster. Stop thinking about all these temporary fixes. Stop thinking about the short-term weight
loss. Turn it into a lifestyle that you’re going
to stick with forever. Find the one method of eating – the nutrition,
right? The form of nutrition that’s going to fuel
your body and keep you in that state for the rest of your life. Feeling good, getting stronger, being healthier
from now, until the day you die. You know what? Here’s the shocker: I don’t care what
method it is. People that think, again, so cult-like in
the fact that you have to eat ‘this way’ are so dangerous to you and everyone they’re
telling their information to. It pisses me off. I want you to be able to find something that
you can stick with. When you do, I’m happy. There is no ‘one method’. I have a method that’s worked for me. I have methods I recommend that I think are
going to help you keep your sanity the most. They’re going to help you not become exclusionary
in your dietary practices where you’re eliminating this and eliminating that. I want it to feel as it if it’s not deprivation-based. It’s something that you can actually do. I’m losing my damn voice, I’m so passionate
about this! But it’s true, guys. The fact is, if you do this right you’ll
never have to do it again. So, I hope that this came across to you guys. The fact is, if you can’t stick to something
it’s not a good option. For me, temporary means nothing. Lifetime is the only solution here. And the longer you go, by getting this wrong,
the more and more dangerous it becomes. The quicker you can get rid of the ‘diet’
term and into something that actually becomes something that’s lifelong nutrition, the
faster you’ll be well on your way to do that. Guys, I’ve laid it all out for you guys
step by step. I have a method. I believe in it. But it may not work for everybody. How’s that for more truth? It may not work for everybody. But I guarantee, if you give it a shot you’re
going to get yourself healthier, putting yourself further down that path to being able to make
that right, fine-tuning decision for yourself that works for you every, single time. If you’re looking for our plans they’re

  1. Want to win an ATHLEAN-X program for free, no strings attached? Click the link below to find out how!

  2. Thank you!! I have been screaming this since keto became the new buzzword

  3. I would jump right into taking it easy! Option B!

  4. Cut the sugar cut the carbs.

  5. 😭😭😭😭

  6. I love this video so much. I really needed to hear this today… and probably everyday 😉

  7. "the coffee and cocaine diet"

  8. Been on the Ketogenic Protocol for three years. It’s not a diet unless you’re only experimenting with it.

  9. AthleanX philosophy:

    Consistency is key
    There is more than one way to skin a cat
    There are no shortcuts in life

  10. Intermittent bullet coffee fasting is the only way to go

  11. Our brains run on ketones or glycogen but mine runs on cocainites

  12. His best video.

  13. If somebody tells Jeff Cavaliere that there is only one diet in the world (6:06), why won't he run away?

    Because he doesn't do cardio.

  14. Weight watchers has nightmares about this guy.

  15. He's right but he's also wrong. He talks about eating meat every single day lol, which is really bad for your health

  16. This guys the mantis 👍🏾👌🏽

  17. “Diet” or no “diet”… Here’s your lifestyle formula homie: 2500 – 3000 daily calorie intake (or base on height and weight) + Intermittent fasting + HIIT + 8 hours of sleep = Weight Loss ::mic drop::

  18. With the diet I actally think, it`s very dependent on who you are. I for one could never loose a bad habit unless I make a choice to stop, and then do it all the way from day one. I believe it comes down to, if you are actually intested in making a change. If you are truly comitted to what you do, it`s not hard to get rid of sugar junk food ect. It wasn`t for me anyway. But I still believe the video has a good message and that it is true for a lot of people.

  19. It's real easy to stick to the cocaine diet as long as you have the bank $$

  20. What do you think of the Carnivore lifestyle, Jeff?

  21. Well, I watched your other video on nutrient dense foods. I googled that and researched them and that is all I eat now. I eat oatmeal with blueberries for breakfast, we have our own chickens so I gather eggs every day. I eat chicken and fish primarily. I have beans, sweet potatoes, vegetables, fruit and I now have no problems with my weight. I have lost a lot and am getting leaner every day and not losing muscle while losing fat. I agree with your assessment of diets on this video. Wish I had considered this sooner.

  22. I went from 240 to 185 by listening to this. Best advice for starting a new life style.

  23. I used to drink a multitude amount of pop a day. Tried quoting just like that, but yes, I couldn't keep to it. Eventually, I took one can away from my day, then two a few weeks later, after a month, I had about our cans every two days. Started drinking a lot more water and taking walks at the local state park. Now a days, I drink pop sometimes when I go out to eat for a special occasion. I mostly drink water and green tea. It isn't easy and while I wanted to just quit it right then and there, I've found I've been able to stick with this new lifestyle, and save a lot of money, with a gradual pace.
    Currently started intermittent fasting by accident after getting sick winter 2018 and learning everything I can to add it to my lifestyle safely. Great tips in these videos and I am very interested to look into the program 👍

  24. I feel like everything he say is like pieces of gold falling on me, All hes vid are so awsome. Thank Jeff for all!

  25. I know people that are doing the Keto diet and they have lost a lot of weight, some have lost to much they look sick. I kinda wanted to try it but I can’t stand eating meat all day long (I know there other things they eat) I’m older and I have gain some weight but I know what it is, not exercising regularly and eat to much dam sugar..even though I eat fruits and vegetables and chicken and fish, cutting back on eat tortillas and bread.. but your videos have motivated me to make changes in my life style.. thank you for your informative videos 💕👍🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  26. Be careful about guys like Dr Berg.

  27. sip the first 6 mins

  28. What if there was a nutrition lifestyle that could prevent animals from having a shitty and abuseful life and save the planet?
    Would you try that?

  29. Keto rubbish the best diet is finding a balance of all healthy foods. Stay away from artificial foods youl be fine

  30. All I could think about was the cookies n cream poptarts in my pantry

  31. Wow! Someone that makes sense. Thank you so very much!!!

  32. Coffee and cocaine diet lol .

  33. Hey Jeff. My dad recommended your channel. I’ve been having issues with my foot. Not sure if it’s plantar fasciitis or what.

    I’m 32 and been 320-335 for as long as I can remember.

    Getting my foot better is the first step. Once I’m not limping around. I gotta find the resistant bands my dad got me and find your videos!

    Thanks for all your help.

  34. GREAT GREAT video! Good job, finaly someone who thinks like me.

  35. THUMBS UP!!!!
    then watch.

    watched most of it, even though i don't diet. i try to eat and think and exercise to live. THAT'S enough.

  36. Most effective diet i ever saw was the ice diet, not the stuff you put in your cordial. You"ll loose 15kg in a week and not sleep for 4 days and you"ll be an insane monster for 2 days after.
    So dont do that, seriously.
    Ive seen it lots tho.

  37. Love this guy 👊

  38. thank you and very well put!!

  39. Much respect!! Thank you for the first truthful video I’ve seen regarding dieting!

  40. Well thought out and honest. Thank you.

  41. Jeff hasnt studied Keto ….

  42. The theory of the low-carbohydrate diet is that fats and proteins will be converted to your needed glucose through gluconeogenesis. The theory behind that is that the energy produced through gluconeogenesis will be provided by triglyceride storage. Here's what I understand from my Anatomy and Physiology textbook. All carbohydrates are converted into glucose before entering the blood stream. Glucose is the primary fuel for ATP (a molecule that releases energy, stored in phosphate bonds, which is then used to to do work). Here are my questions. Do low-carbohydrate diets lower blood glucose levels or is gluconeogensis enough to compensate? Will going from eating a macro-nutrient ratio higher in carbohydrates to a ratio very low in carbohydrates lead to temporary or long term suppressed brain function and brain cell death? How can one properly gauge how much protein to eat on a low-carbohydrate diet if they were following the ANA recommendations on exercise (not forgetting about the thermic effect of food)? I have more questions, but the basic premise of the questions I have asked are to establish possible dangers of not consuming enough carbohydrates concerning different scenarios and individuality (diabetes, obesity, activity level, etc.).

  43. That fat 320 lb guy with chocolate cake smeared over his face is probably not going to stop. Same as crackhead teeth falling out wont stop either. So whats the point? By the way i like ALL ur other videos. 🙂 nobody said its easy. I lost 40lb 1st year and 10 more in last 10 years. Im doing a short fast right now. Its not easy but i will have a nice greek salad and rib eye in 4 days. Children around the world dont have that to look fwrd to. Suk it up fatty im 69 hitting the gym 6 days a week. U want it take it. U can cheat a couple days a week cause ur new cheat is a bowl of ceral not a pkate of cake.

  44. Jeff, have a look at this lecture on fat-adapted elite endurance athletes on keto. I think the science will cause you to change your mind

  45. Noted, thanks.

  46. I came in when I saw the clickbait title with keto on it, been doing keto for over a year absolutely love it and I think Jeff is spot on, if u see any diet as a diet and not a lifestyle then it's already failed before it had a chance to work in the first place… Keto for life!

  47. Awesome!! 💖

  48. 'God Willing' ♡

  49. Outstanding.

  50. He’s like a dad that’s let’s you know he’s not mad he’s just disappointed and why

  51. Why didn't you have that 320 pound guy doing pullups?

  52. Inspirational words as always with this guy. I've actually learned a lot about the importance of proper nutrition and exercise just from watching his videos over the past couple months. It's literally changed my life since I cut all the sugary garbage out of my system. Thank you Jeff!

  53. Totally agree with you on the word Nutrition instead of Diet. I was working out hard and not loosing the weight. I made simple change in my nutrition and am aiming at cutting all non natural sugar. I went from 28% body fat to now less than 17% and counting. I am leaner, stronger and have more energy.

  54. Foufff perdi 7mins dan mo lavi ékout 1 plok kozé

  55. What you think about the snake diet fast.

  56. Intermitant fasting is best for me. Lose weight but keep metabolism up. But you can do less calories and always lose something. I know a guy in prison who did muscle gains on carbs in there and peanut butter so no excuses let's get to work. If you really want it, it will happen.

  57. 80-10-10! Plant based lifestyle, not a diet. Loving life. Thanx Jeff. Love your channel.

  58. This video was the start of me changing my life. I had ridden the roller coaster of weight loss and attempts/failure until I saw this.

    Committed to a lifestyle and have lost over 40 lbs thus far in 2019. I'm excited to see where this process takes me but we are headed in the right direction.

    Thanks Jeff!

  59. I've yo-yo'd on he Atkins diet many times. The reason I've used it so much is because it works quickly for my body type. I've tried a balanced diet with carbs and i always feel sluggish, "down" and just less energetic when consuming larger amounts of Carbs (Healthy). Over the past 3 years, I've found a balance and consistency with lower (healthy) carbs and some Intermittent fasting mixed in. I'm not hungry in the AM anyway so the Int fasting was natural and i was doing it before it was popular (although I've been told not to skip meals).

    Long story short, just like Jeff said, it has to be conducive to your lifestyle in order to be sustainable. I've found a way to balance low carb and Int fasting with some cheat meals hear and there and i am very happy with my lifestyle. It took me years, many trainers, and a lot of diff advise to find balance for my life. I'm in the best shape of my adult life and almost back to my High School Athlete physique.

    Love the videos! I'm gona try to win a free workout routine with the next few videos!

  60. Option A!!!….. oh

  61. Your Videos are so on point, based on science and fact. You Rock!

  62. Thanks. I needed this.

  63. the only thing I feel is worthwhile is cutting out added sugars/artificial sweetener and allowing yourself a treat once a week or on a special occasion. My hashimoto's disease and IBS symptoms both went way down after I cut sugar out. I was able to start exercising again and now I feel even better.

  64. Thank you so much:)

  65. keto and carnivore changed my life for good

  66. I dont understand the thumbs down, this is probably the best Ive heard about diets.

  67. Cacaine is my coffee

  68. Excellent advice .

  69. I am so glad I have seen this video. I have started the weight watchers diet for the 3rd time because its worked for me I lost 4 stones so 56lbs and put it all back on when I stop the diet. And you just made my mind click I need to see it as a life long nutrition plan. Thank you so much you speak a lot of sense.

  70. I have been on Keto & Paleo, I skip the semantics and just stay extremely low carb. Staying away from carbs is a easy hack to avoid processed food. ADA yesterday just said acknowledged

    Low carb> Diabetes

  71. I never follow diet, I follow a lifestyle, I follow athlean-x

  72. Jeff I really appreciate you man!

  73. Wasn't fat, but used to drink/eat a lot of sugar.
    And some day I cut down on soda completely, the next year on sweets, and this year on adding teaspoons of sugar here and there in my yogurts/coffees.
    I did take a step back and cut a bit of slack (because rigidity is bad), but making those lifestyle changes is GOOD.

  74. What is the daily requirement according to the FDA for "CARBS". You loose weight from caloric reduction, the KETO has nothing to do with weight loss, When you do KETO you loose the wants, cravings for "CARBS" and loose the instant ability to store excess fat. KETO-OMAD-Intermittent fasting for life. Sugar burners die young-Fat burners live forever. KILL YOUR CARBS!

  75. Jeff admitting he was on the cocaine and caffeine diet

  76. He's 100% right, you cannot just give it all you have no matter what and expect to stick with it long-term. You have to take it easy, put one thing at a time, when you feel uncomfortable, slow down your pace instead of taking in more than you could chew, otherwise 3 month will pass and you know you could of got in a great shape already, then 6, then a year and two and so on. Happened to me, but I learned from my mistakes and on my way to 10% body fat for the first time in my life, and I am on a plan that is fun and I'm loving it first time ever after 7 years of failure.

  77. Well said Jeff! So true and spot on

  78. That hand size is triggering me

  79. I’m glade I watched this based on the name I wasn’t going to but it’s something I needed to hear

  80. thank you

  81. Preach brother. I've alway used the word "detox" from over carb / over sugar. You can't jump off the cliff and expect no to land too hard. I've been training professionally for a few years and just "on the side" for 25 years. I use your videos for a sanity check from time to time. Great content and in my opinion your message really shows people you care.

  82. Thanks Champ
    great advice as always

  83. Those who see my comment here, I recommend a book called Atomic Habbits. This book talks about how to set up habits you want and get rid of habits you don’t want. This is exactly what Jeff is talking about in this video.

  84. Coffee and cocaine diet to expensive

  85. 2.3K Keto idiots disliked this video

  86. the word Diet is not as bad as the way people interpret it. Diet simply means a lifestyle where it does not really matter what you are consuming. If you like to snack with your snot you can also consider it as a diet.

  87. Follower for a couple of weeks and everytime excited when stopping by, looking some of your vids and listen to your advice, really great job, Jeff!

    I'm almost 55 and my gf and I started Oct 2016 changing our way what and how much we eat, we went for "eat as healthy as possible but at least try not over 1200 cals a day" and ended with -35kg for her and -25kg for me after 11 month (for my part 95 to 70kg and 34 to 15%BF) – sometime we struggle a bit but always coming back on track just due to the freedom to change or adjust what we are putting on our plate. It started as "diet" and ended up as our way to eat.
    Your so damn right and a great inspiration – please keep going!
    (Adopted meanwhile a lot of your advices in my training routine) 🤓

  88. Seen this video before and didn't notice the intensity of this video. Jeff actually cares about all the people who watch his channel. Other ones just quote what they read on Google and hope it gets views.

  89. that's why you're a winnerJeff!

  90. hey jeff i did keto for 14 days and when i begin running my respiratory system including heart and lungs where burning including my slow blurry vision, so i quit that f diet

  91. Hey man, a former boxer and NSCA-CPT coming back from a bunch of shoulder and back injuries and regaining my old body, your videos have been gold. I dig the deep science and motivational real talk.

    Something that really worked to turn around my eating style is using a nutrition log with only four goals:

    1) cutting calories to get 2lbs per week (with bonus calories allotted for exercise). I weigh myself in the morning and before bed to keep it realistic using a smart scale.

    2) setting my target for protein at 1.7g per kg body mass, changing it every time I lose 25% toward my target weight, which is what I last boxed at.

    3) setting my daily water intake to 1 gallon, plus extra for coffee, protein shakes, and sauna time.

    4) setting my fiber goal to 40g per day.

    Initially I tried a super low carb approach, but couldn’t get to 40g without supplementation that tastes like shit and causes gag reflex.

    What I found was I could keep my carbs under 15% by eating whole foods, and by the time I hit my fiber and protein goals, I only had room for a gin and soda at the end of the day without tapping into “bonus calories.”

    A fella has got to eat. And drink. In moderation.

    I try to avoid bonus eating because it lets me fall into bad habits or late night eating, but if I’m feeling flat, worn out, or psychologically and emotionally exhausted, I’ll throw 500 calories at myself and usually wake up feeling and looking leaner than the morning before.

    Also, being a night owl, the workouts and caloric deficit make sleep a lot easier than it’s been in a long time, taking anxiety and late eating out of the equation.

    Anyway, looking at my nutrition with the same goal mindset as my workouts, plus some good come to Jesus info from your channel (refreshing what I used to practice and preach 20 years ago) has helped me drop 5.5% body fat and keep 90% of the weight loss as fat, not muscle, while remaining injury free… though sometimes annoyed (labrum).

    Additionally, I feel energized because I’m not ruling with an iron fist. I’m maintaining discipline with daily goal reinforcement. I know the foods I can turn to in a pinch to get me over my goals, and if I miss a day here and there it doesn’t matter because my main goal, losing fat, is trending absurdly in the correct direction. I feel good when I hit all my goals, but if I miss one… fuck it: there are three others I probably hit. I’ll take it and do better tomorrow.

    I can’t thank you enough for the advice and helping an injury riddled fat fuck wake up the inner warrior I ate when I couldn’t compete anymore.

    Keep up the good stuff and fuck the haters.

  92. Outstanding!

  93. I'm not on a diet. I'm dealing with a lifestyle change.

  94. Rushing into a big change is why most vegans fail and say the diet makes people sick….yeh it does if u eat vegan junk food and salads which don't have enough calories.
    If people want to go vegan for ethics then they should switch to organic meat and no dairy first….and slowly reduce the meat over time.
    Organic meat my nature costs a bit more so you'll eat less if you don't increase your budget.
    I still eat fish 5 years after starting the journey and i have found my comfortable stop point.
    If it was all or nothing i wouldn't have found this balance.
    Giving up all your fav foods is hard so giving up all your old comfort foods at once is really hard.

  95. In my early years, I bought a ton of programs and different supplements. I meal prepped and tried to eat a ton. But, I set myself up for failure every, single, time.

    When you are used to eating crap practically your whole life the majority of the time. Expecting to change your entire diet to something completely different also at the amounts these programs said to eat. Is unrealistic.

    I stuck with the change for a few weeks. I would eat a cheat meal here and there, but the amount of calories I had to jump to from what I was used to made me fail. I learned so much over the years now in my 30s.

    Find the nutrition and workout that works for you then progress to add more calories or intensity to your workout. Consistency is key.

  96. Best advices I've seen/heard on youtube. Honest and on point. I've always apreciated advices that you need to hear not what you want to hear. Respect!!!

  97. high fat and keto is such crap

  98. THIS is so important. Damn. Thank you so much!

  99. diet

     noun (1)

    di·​et |  ˈdī-ət  

    Definition of diet

     (Entry 1 of 4)

    1a: food and drink regularly provided or consumed.

    Nowhere does a diet mean temporary unless you're uneducated.

  100. No, you said Keto followers say Keto is the only way. Those of us who know better understand ethnographic/cultural background and DNA make up, to be a factor. The veto lifestyle is figured out by the individual over time. Experimentation with percentage combinations of fat, protein and carbohydrates As for using the word DIET that's semantics. I can say there are two types of diet, good and bad. If you eat convenient packaged foods and little else that's a bad diet, but many stick to this from the cradle to the grave resulting in degenerative illnesses in later life if not before. If one chooses a diet of unprocessed foods, meat, healthy fats, vegetables, avoiding all sugars and processed carbohydrates, this is not only good for you but sustainable. 
    it's sustainable because its fulfilling and results are positive and plentiful. Especially sustainable with the results which are yielded for example the reversal of insulin resistance, the body's immune system becomes more robust and energy levels are enhanced. Intermittent Fasting on Keto or the Paleo with high fat lifestyle, when done correctly, brings about a state of Autophagy (see Yoshinori Ohsumi Nobel Prize Laureate 2016) which is a condition of self cleaning and repair never seen in a person consuming high carb diets/lifestyle. No one says that carbs are just wiped off the menu, you said that. Carbohydrates are slowly removed so fat adaption can be introduced without causing stress on a mind used to eating six times a day and having insulin levels peaked constantly. It is clear to me your research on this subject is brief and your opinion via insufficient study, reactionary. Carbohydrates are a macro nutrient not required by the body. The fuel we burn is the Ketone, ketones instead of sugar. You should research ketones and Autophagy, they're backed by real science not opinion.
