nice video about fat loss

Recommended Posts

This guy is predominantly correct. His stories may be anecdotal but they have over-arching implications by extension.

We have to protect ourselves and take control of our own health.

I've researched optimal health for decades and feel the book; Eat Rich Live Long by Dr Gerber and Ivor Cummins to be the best.

 

It is an absolute certainty that it is NOT about "eat less, move more" < proven by countless recent studies. Also see Dr Jason Fung videos on youtube.

Dr Fung and Ivor Cummins;

Here's Dr Ted Naiman too;

 

Dr Naiman got me onto a $99USD CAC ct scan for heart calcium score. Nice guy and VERY smart.

    Ding thanks for posting this video.  I got a lot of new ideas from this video and will be getting a CAC test when I return to the states.  There are such big holes in the generally accepted theories of obesity and health.  The video really gave some new insight to me I had never had before.  Thanks again.

I wholehearty disagree with Jason Fung. He is just an other guy making a buck of the obesetiy epedemic.

 

You can't discount the laws of thermodynamic.

 

Once you clean up your diet, meaning no processed foods, after that it really does not matter if you go low carb, high carb, low fat or whatever it all works. Countless studies have proven that low carb does not preform any better as traditional diets.

 

It has the same failure rates (people dropping out) as other diets and in the end the weight loss is compatible with that of other diets. I posted studies in an other thread to back that up. 

 

Low carb is good however if your really fat and insulin resistant... that is when it works... but once you part a certain stage it does not matter anymore. 

 

I lost 25 kg on a high carb diet, why high carb, as i needed it to fuel my exercise.

 

My point is all diets are equal but the problem is adhering to them. A diet should be something sustainable, something you could do the rest of your life... taking away carbs totally is IMHO not feasible at least not for people who do strenuous exercise. 

 

There is no one diet that is better than others we should just pick one that is best for us (meaning easiest to comply with)

The only thing his diet works better for is the blood values that improve... but weight loss wise it does NOT outperform other diets.

     The video is about the long term effects of diets high in carbohydrates.  It is well worth watching.  Have you had a fatty liver test?  Fung is not in the video where you posted your comments.

     Dr. Fung has made comments on the laws of thermodynamics since he spent a year in engineering school before transferring to medical school.  He does explain quite clearly why Thermodynamics is not relevant to medical work.  Fung works in Canada where he is part of the government subsidized health care system.  He is at Toronto General.  His books and presentations are made because he can not take more patients.  There are 1100 patients waiting to see him for his treatments.  He has records showing the successful elimination of type II diabetes in over 1200 patients.  

      He is not a smoke and mirrors hack.  I doubt seriously he is making a fast back.  He doesn't even advertise day coolers in his youtube videos.  However, many people may not want his very radical treatments and would like to be on chronic life time medicine to die more slowly.  Or just avoid the doctor entirely until they are near death.  Too each his own!

It depends on what kind of carbohydrates, that is the major flaw in his reasoning. Good carbohydrates have been used by humans for 1000's of years. The problem started when we started to eat processed carbohydrates with all kind of added stuff. 

 

Good carbohydrates like oats (provided you don't take too much in one sitting) are not the problem.

 

Case in point is me 25 kg lost, and now again dropping weight and getting leaner.. and guess what I am eating carbs.

 

Bodybuilders have always eaten carbs to fuel their workouts, but they go low carb too at times. 

 

You fail to recognize that consistency is far more important than any diet, for many people low carb is just not useful. So what is better going low carb and quitting or doing a balanced diet without processed food that people stick to. Its all about caloric restriction after you cleaned up your diet of processed foods.

 

I have no fatty liver test have confirmed that... carbs are not the enemy if you exercise.

      I have given up most processed food including oats and breakfast cereals and bread and sugar and artificial sweetners crackers cookies desserts.  All gone!  I have no problem with sweet potatoes, blueberries, watermelon, salad greens raw or boiled or steamed veggies, etc I have no idea why you keep on insisting i am a low carb or no carb advocate.  I am an IF advocate and I like Keto sometimes.  Never have counted calories and not sure if I have done calorie restriction.  And I go for decent amounts of weight lifting and cardio.  

       One of the biggest problems I see for health and dieting is that many people are conned into believing crappy foods are good for them.  As they have their bowls of granola or sugary sports drinks.  I am willing to throw out some foods that people advocate based on my own experiences.  I think that is best.  I also have no problem at all staying on this diet.  I have had a long term weight loss more than 41 lbs and  my bodyfat has gone from 27.9% to 19% and my muscle mass is up around 6 kilos over the two year period and and had no weight bounce backs! I have had plateaus from body adjusting to my new routines. 

       I just don't have a problem with my diet and lifestyle.  I realize lots of people can not do IF or Keto or stay in the gym routines 4 or more days a week.  I can!  If those people have found another way that has taken off the weight and has kept them from rebounding good for them.

         Anyway, today is carbohydrate pizza cheat day with my friend that had the stroke and insist he is entitled to pizza and milk because he takes his medicine.  I really have problems with this day and will be glad to leave Thailand for the summer and not be a party to this madness.  On the other hand his behavior is probably absolutely normal.  SAD!  So many people can not understand what they are doing to their bodies.  My friend was a cyclist logging 100 of miles a week and bicycled thru Cambodia, Greece and Tibet.  His crappy diet got him anyway!  He is a TOFI!  I suspect!  And the knowledge in that one video about CAC might have kept him from this downward spiral in his health.  

          So if you really believe that to each his own when he finds success then we are on the same page.

The thing is you did exactly what i was talking about you removed the crappy foods. Once that is done and you restrict calories one way or the other weight will come off. For you this works and that is great keep doing it. For me low carb did not work it sapped my training energy. I think i train at a higher level than you and then carbs are needed. 

 

I believe that you should do what suits you best, and you have found what works for you. No problem advertising that but my problem is more that people seem to advertise that its the only way. That is just not true there are so many ways to lose weight and all we need to do is find a way that suits our goals best. All I am doing is giving some alternate advise to counter the believe there is just one way to do it.

 

Like you i removed the crappy foods, granola.... loaded with calories (never ate it) same as breakfast serials never ate them in my life. Only thing I ate was porridge and oats. 

 

I think we are basically in agreement, i was just under the impression that you were advocating a one diet for all and that is something i rally against. 

 

I try not to have cheat days but refeeds, basically it just means eating more of the healthy stuff. But truth be told its hard to see the GF eats a pizza while i can't (or wont).  I have done blood sugar test H1AB. I also do other tests to see if everything is going the way i want it to go. I got a clinic near my home, and they just take some blood and send it to the BKK lab and done. I get a nice printout and keep that printout for future reference. I will be doing one more test in 2 months. I hope to finally reached part of my goals then.

 

Once I am there I am going to look into reverse dieting, the theory seems sound but if it works... who knows. I would love to slowly build up the amount of calories i can eat because I am eating not much. That is mainly part to my under active thyroid. Been that way since i was a child. 

 

MY real goal is to look my best in november as my brother is coming over ... just a bit of sibling rivalry.

 

He was always super lean even had a 6 pack without doing anything about it and could eat all he wanted. Now he is diabetic, because he thought he could eat whatever he wanted and not exercise. I just like it how the tables have turned (not that I am happy he is diabetic)

      I only suggest my alternative when people have failed with other plans.  Even those people often reject the IF and Keto as too extreme.

       I have a friend who smokes and he cut down by using Chantix.  When I suggested he increase his dose and stop smoking entirely he said he thought that might be dangerous!  So smoke away he does.  I find a lot of people have some pretty flimsy excuses for not using new alternatives that help them with their health.

Sure people should try other programs when what they were doing failed them. We just need to find what is right for us. 

 

In the end (i dont believe any diet is superior to an other as i shown in the other topic) its all about sustainability and consistency. If you stick to the program (whatever program) its usually going to work. But if you pick a program that is not suited for you you won't be able to stick with it and will revert back to your old habits and gain the weight back, sometimes even more.

 

I keep my carbs around my workout and in the evening I eat a huge salad (without dressing) and some eggs or chicken. I am lucky the GF makes me that salad, I eat it every day.

 

I am one of those guys who can eat the same day after day. I weigh all my food and because I eat the same or similar every day its easy to track what I ate. 

 

The superior diet... is the one you stick with.

Basic problem

 

Eat more move less get fat! Basic comon sense. The food we buy, make you more hungry faster and you eat more. 

 

I just saw the half of it, and will continue later, but do we really have free will? I studied marketing, and how to manipulate people to buy the products, and buy more of it. The same goes for food, we buy food that they want us to eat more of, and what do they do? They combine surten well know processes that makes you hungry faster, and together with agressiv marketing, you are in their trap. We get addicted and slowly get into the negative spiral. 

 

There is no fancy cure, it is just to change your eating, make basic food from ground, and move more. For men in the age in here I would guess 40+, it will take more muscle work out and build muscles and less cardio. Again simple basic knownledge. 

 

Good luck

i have a wee bit less willpower than y'all when it comes to consume food,

from my standpoint, i can manage the weight right up

until i get started on any form of sugar,

but once i cross that line, it goes straight to hell, very quickly

I quit all the sugar I could, and also some carbs, and after a week, my hunger for something all the time eased. Now, Im back eating normal, but no sugar, and less bread, and 15 kg less, more power, lifting, walking, swimming and of course more bedroom activity as a bieffect.  Somebody have to do the dirty work I guess, so why not, as long Im healthier.
