What 2000 Calories Look Like on Most Popular Diets

hey dudes ooh girls here in the kitchen with an exciting food-related episode have you ever wondered what 2,000 calories looks like spread out over breakfast lunch and dinner what we did and we also wondered what that would look like on four of the more popular modern diets which is Tito paleo vegan and the ever-popular fast food so not only do we want to showcase what it takes to hit 2,000 calories on all of those diets but also a little information on what those diets are themselves are you ready let's get started keto diet the ketogenic diet is a high fat moderate protein low carbohydrate diet it is also sometimes referred to as the Atkins or low carb diet the diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates normally the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function however if little carbohydrate remains in the diet the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies the ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source this elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood is known as a state called ketosis when this happens your body becomes efficient at burning fat for energy it also turns fat into ketones in the liver which can supply energy for the brain although the ketogenic diet is generally safe for healthy people there may be some side effects while your body adapts this is often referred to as the keto fool keto flu includes poor energy and mental function increased hunger sleep issues nausea digestive discomfort and decreased exercise performance when on the keto diet you will want to avoid sugars fruits B or any other carb based foods instead eat foods such as meat fish eggs butter nuts oils avocados and low carb vegetables the Paleo diet the Paleolithic diet or Paleo diet for short is a diet where you consume foods presume to have been the only ones available during the Paleolithic era while there is a wide variability in the way the Paleo diet is interpreted the diet typically includes vegetables fruits nuts roots and meat and excludes foods such as dairy grains sugar and processed oils the diet is based on avoiding not just processed foods but rather the foods that humans began eating when they transition from hunter-gatherer lifestyles to agriculture and farming the Paleo diet is promoted as a way of improving health there is some evidence that following this diet may lead to improvements in terms of body composition and metabolic effects compared with that of the typical Western diet there is no good evidence however that the diet helps with weight loss other than through the normal mechanisms of calorie restriction when on the Paleo diet you will want to avoid all processed foods and ingredients including sugar bread certain vegetable oils trans fats and artificial sweeteners instead eating unprocessed foods such as meat seafood eggs veggies fruits potatoes nuts healthy fats and spices if possible choose grass-fed and organic products the vegan diet the vegan diet is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products particularly in your diet vegans refrain from consuming animal products not only meat but also eggs dairy and other animal derived substances some reviews have shown that some people who eat vegan diets have less chronic disease including heart disease than people who do not follow a restrictive diet vegan diets tend to be higher in dietary fiber magnesium vitamin C II and iron but lower in dietary energy saturated fat cholesterol omega-3 fatty acids vitamin D calcium zinc and vitamin b12 unbalanced vegan diets may lead to nutritional deficiencies that nullify any beneficial effects and may cause serious health issues some of these deficiencies can only be prevented through the choice of fortified foods or the regular intake of dietary supplements vitamin b12 supplementation is especially important because its deficiency causes blood disorders and potentially irreversible neurological damage when on the vegan diet you will want to avoid any animal flesh animal by-products or foods containing an ingredient from animal origin instead you'll want to focus on eating nuts seeds tofu whole grains sprouted foods and fruits and vegetables fast food is a type of mass produce food designed for commercial resale with a strong priority placed on speed of service when on the fast food diet you want to avoid while there's really nothing to avoid it's all fair game ok that wraps it up what 2,000 calories looks like on four of the more popular modern diets it was a little surprising for me doing this video it was interesting to see what goes into the meals that Kito paleo vegan fast-food I don't necessarily follow one diet but if you do please let us know any of the information we may have not mentioned or something that you enjoy about it specifically also let us know what diet you follow all right well until next time


  1. I am a middle of the road vegan. I always get my vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients, but I do indulge in the occasional treat like a good and greasy veggie burger. Also you can miss out on key nutrients on any diet if you don't pay attention. I don't say that to bash anyone it just seems like nobody talks about the deficiencies that can occur in other diets.

  2. I eat the seafood diet. I “sea” food, I eat them

  3. I'm here for the comments by triggered vegans. Wackiest religion in the world.

  4. Vegan clearly the best

  5. I want to gain 10lbs but not sure which diet is best…help

  6. when he showed the vegan 2000kcal spread out…i eat that in one sitting 😶

  7. Why am I watching this while fasting?

  8. By the looks of these meals I probably eat about 12 calories a day

    I'm a small girl.

  9. enjoy angry vegans in the comments 😂

  10. 🤔I like the info and how each diet works, uh, minus fast food (duh moment) So thanks. >^>* a joke for the vegans, no wonder y'all angry dang.😂😂😂

  11. I switch beetween Paleo/Kito/Vegan every 2 days it works the best

  12. Keto Gang

  13. I appreciate this video solely because I finally know the specifics of these current “diets” going around.

  14. Here for the triggered vegans

  15. Cudos on each meal. Happy to see someone showing a keto meal WITH actual vegetables. In fact you could have added 3 times more veggies to those meals. Keto is low NET carbs so fiber is not restricted at all unless you are dialing things to the nanogram.

  16. Can't believe you wasted all those calories on a protein shake!

  17. Really neat perspective! Super interesting to see examples of each diet and I appreciated your non bias!

  18. Presented keto has too little fat. 80% kcals should origin from fats.

  19. I’m surprised the vegan diet has more fat than the paleo 💀💀

  20. How to be Keto:

    Don’t be Vegan

  21. True about vegan deit, i have bad side effects from not doing it right! If you do persew it, please i cant stress enough do your research!

  22. fried chicken with flour lmfao

  23. Tbh, these all look like sad diets. I've done keto before, and I am really not a fan of the ketosis flu and decrease in exercise intensity. And vegan… just why not vegetarian?

  24. Do a carnivore diet one

  25. Warning 5:56 just riped my ears

  26. Vegan FTW! The more i read about it the more it became clear! Also this is by far the most eco-friendly and cruelty free diet <3

  27. B12 supplementation in a vegan diet is also important as B12 deficiency has been linked with depression!

  28. any vegans here? love y’all!

  29. We must treat vegans with the same force as heathens!!! BURN THEM AT THE STAKE!!!

  30. Is it me or does the keto diet look so unappealing? It would make me feel sick to eat that much fat 😷

  31. Veganism isn't a diet, it's a lifestyle. Plant based is the diet term for eating "vegan."
    Great video though! ☺

  32. When has a vegan diet ever been popular?

  33. Just saying I eat 3400 calories a day while being vegan. I eat a very well balanced diet and I eat no oils whatsoever for obvious reasons(being they're unhealthy and there's other ways to get fat which are also much healthier).

  34. First of all… keto isnt safe
    Second… it doesnt cause you to lose fat only waterweight which doesnt mean shit. Paleo is just as stupid in regards to “health” . Third, vegan isnt a diet. Its an ideology

  35. Here's something with the Keto Diet. I have stage 5 kidney failure. Stable, but low function. Anyway I followed the Keto diet for 6 weeks. I lost around 15 lbs and had kept track of my kidney function as well. I had no significant kidney function change. My BUN actually improved slightly (from 83 to 74. Note Normal BUN is like 15~30) Of note, my kidney problems seem to be from scaring. Diet has little effect on my specific condition.

    P.S. I'm not on dialysis, nor am I going to get a kidney transplant.

  36. For the vegan diet, I only take B12 as a supplement and everything else is covered with the food. My blood work is looking amazing and my doc is happy ✌

  37. And my diet….balanced diet with no candy/junk food in general lol

  38. What about the carnivore diet?

  39. "eat what was available during the paeliolithic era"… Like pancakes

  40. I am a junk food and processed food vegan since summer 2011 — that's nearly a decade — but I went meatless a few years prior to going vegan. I mean, it's not like I only eat junk foods, but I do tend to eat mostly supermarket-bought processed stuff cause it's convenient. I can't cook to save my life, and the few times I tried I either added too much salt or almost burned the whole thing. This seems to work for me without supplementing because I never supplement and haven't noticed any signs of deficiencies yet. As for calcium, it turns out I've been getting too much of it and have been made to drink acidic sodas to get rid of the excess calcium as it can lead to kidney stones, as well as drinking less mineral water which may contain a lot of calcium — the best mineral water brands usually do. I always drank a lot of mineral water because I loved the taste, and because I can't stand normal water unless it's made into lemon water/lemonade or something… During summers, I increase my fruit intake cause watermelons and other fruits are available and cheaper… So yeah, I don't follow a specific meal plan, and just eat whatever I feel like eating or is available,, and this works for me. There are times I feel the need to eat organic/bio foods which I can find online, and there are times when I feel the need to eat a lot of peanuts, almonds, other nuts, and seeds — in fact, I ate so many sunflower seed bags this January and February just for the heat/calories; if you eat like 300 g of the thing you won't even need extra heating during cold winters. And I eat a lot of desserts/sugar, like, almost daily. But I also eat healthier stuff like fruit, and salad mixes.

  41. Of course the comments are full of offended vegans.

  42. Keto is only referred to the Atkins diet by people who don't know what it is.
    But I'm surprised and appreciated how well represented it was. Thank you so much

  43. I'm on the "Last Safe Food" diet. So I drink 6 cups of coffee, and eat 1,000 almonds. I don't feel good and I smell bad but at least I'm not putting dangerous chemicals in my body. Like water, and bread.

  44. Vegan diet : Where total idiots ignore doctors and nutritional advice, embarking on a diet that restricts logic, and promotes the appearance of a pasty, unwell deluded twat.

  45. You lost me 17seconds in
