  1. As usual, I’ll just have to take your word for it (despite you talking clearly and plenty of pictures). I must have some type of fetish where I like to feel stupid lol.

  2. this makes a lot o evolutionary sense, given that this is exactly what you would want if you where a hunter gatherer or farmer, during the spring or summer you would have access to higher carb foods which would allow you to be more metabolically efficient and also more active, during winter, as you change your diet to more animal based sources and enter into a fat based metabolism, your body starts producing more heat due to the mitochondrial inefficiency, allowing you to stay warmer during winter.

  3. Interesting, though I'm curious to see the long term effects of Keto. I can't imagine eating copious amounts of butter, eggs, steak grass-fed or not laden with saturated fat can't be any good for you long term. Sure you lose weight, but at the risk of cardiovascular disease, not worth it IMHO. I follow 18:6 IF, a whole food plant based diet and daily walks of an hour or more, some light strength training and zumba. Over 15 years now, weight maintenance, blood pressure, blood sugars are all non-issues! Simple nothing complicated about it and it works!

  4. The science reflects whatever those paying for it wish it to…
    We are fat burners, saturated fat burners in every way. We ate meat and fat for 35o thousand years.. we don't have a caecum.. sugar is inflammatory and deleterious to human health. The Randal cycle is very clear.

  5. Appreciate for ur great work, do we store toxin and heavy metal in out fat storage processing? That later if we try to burn them we actually going to release toxin and bunch of unhealthy components?

  6. Hey Nic! With the fat loss being sort of spot-specific, do you think this has any implications in storing/burning of visceral fat vs subcutaneous in humans? For example, it's fairly well known, I believe, that fructose metabolizes mostly in the liver, and stores in the liver much like ethanol does: viscerally. Perhaps ketogenic diets for whatever reason incentivize burning visceral and storing subcutaneous?

  7. Proposal to the channel: please research many places from many countries. US based YouTube bloggers we already have. All the same music. Similar stuff. We need more interesting content. E.g. Compare 3-5 different researches and where researchers are working and who payed for the research. And if your Subscribers are ok with that, then do the dive in. Otherwise I don't see the point of rereading what we all already doing. C19 times already showed the competence is lagging behind in some institutions. Why then read PDF? Read 10 of them and combine.

  8. Electrolyte requirements for ketogenic diets tend to be higher and risk of dehydration also seems to be higher, I wonder if mitochondrial function in rhe context if keto would differ when taking this into account?
