So you’ve heard about Keto, aka the Ketogenic diet. Is it healthy? We turned to cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn for answers. #Keto #IsKetoHealthy #VeganDoctor …



  1. This Dr is an idiot! Your study is a bull shit survey. These are proven to be false. The other thing is you don't even know what your talking about. Your describing Atkins and calling it keto. Keto is low in protein, HI in vegetable based fats moron. Your supposed to be a Dr and you don't even know the difference. And I'm not an advocate of keto either. But know your facts before making a video. You just got schooled by a pedestrian.

  2. Do your research and draw your own conclusions. For me the Ketogenic diet has meant significant weight-loss, increased energy, inhibition of cancer development. In my opinion after 5 months of following it and reading a great deal of doctor-generated opinions, I am convinced that sugar and refined carbs are tantamount to poison.

  3. Can a meat heavy ketogenic diet, what? This video is absolutely pushing a false narrative about keto. For starters, if you are looking you be in nutritional ketosis, you will not be eating a diet "heavy" in meat. It will be heavy in healthy fats and and protein is supposed to be your second priority. Real keto diets will recommend you to watch how much protein you consume while in ketosis because if you eat too much, your body will convert it to glucose via a method called gluconeogenesis. PLEASE seriously do real research and don't listen to this liar trying to sell some fake product that doesn't actually help you. I lost 40 pounds over 6 months on keto and I never once felt like it might be dangerous.

  4. Well balanced Keto or other Low Carb diets are not meat heavy. Meet with some of the scientists at Virta Health, or dive deep into the hundreds of clinical studies and report on a well balanced low carb diet.

  5. Still waiting for him to get to an actual debunk … but the video is over. All I heard was a recital of 'data' 'which has already been shown to be misleading, and weak to non-existent in predictive value coming from sources which are well-known for bias.

  6. Hmmmm…Oprah's doctor, huh?

    Oprah owns a huge share of Weight Watchers…you know that "everything in moderation" diet plan with a 95% failure rate…the one she supposedly follows and is still overweight…

    Oprah also owns (pardon the pun) OWNtv…a television network that generates revenue from advertising…

    If you watch at least an hour of television a day and pay close attention, you'll notice the vast majority of broadcast advertising comes from two industries: pharmaceuticals/healthcare and food!

    Keto can reverse many chronic conditions and prevent others: no medications = no money!

    Coincidence that this guy, whose patient is in the television industry is demonizing Keto? Nah!

  7. Sorry Doc, it's a high Fat diet, not high meat diet. Human precedents for it's success? Just look to the natural fat diet as adapted by the Inuit. The modern high fat diet works, I've been using it nearly a year. Lost weight (you retain 3 times as much water for every ounce of carb you consume, drop the carbs the water weight comes off fast), feel much less arthritis symptoms (a constant flow of Insulin in our blood stream from high carb sugary diets causes massive inflammation in our organs and especially our joints & Brains), and have a nice steady energy level ( I eventually got to where I only eat 1 meal a day and snack in the evening, no big rises or falls in energy, just steady and clear).
    The fats you need to consume are primarily sourced from plants and fish; Coconut oils, Olive oils, Avocado oils, Fish oils. Meat is certainly allowed but too much meat can be turned in to Glucose easily by our bodies and so becomes just another source of carb. Keto is 75% Good Fats, 20% Protein, 5% Carbs. The hard part is craving Chocolate and Bread. You'll have to learn new recipes and read labels in the store carefully. Try it! It may change your life for the better. Sugar is NOT your friend. Check out Sten Ekberg's videos, he can explain why the Keto diet works.

  8. It makes complete sense I always wondered what happened to all that fat that people on keto diet sir eating they had to increase their triglycerides level and also there blood should be affected with so much fat floating around yes I know that the fat is used as energy but not all fat will be used so it makes a lot of sense and in the long term. It's common sense that eating such high amounts of animal fat is is bad for health then there is also the animal protein that is too bad in my opinion I feel k e t o is good for diabetics they can instantly lower their blood sugar levels and slowly transition to you whole food plant based diet and if you are doing low carb high fat diet it should preferably be vegan

  9. This craze scares me for enviornmental reasons. You think factory farming is bad for the enviornment now? Imagine if the bulk of the population eats 95% meat and cheese for a couple decades. Not to mention the animal welfare aspect which will get worse and worse in factory farms. And the majority of people on these diets will be using normal supermarket products. Most Americans cant afford stuff like grass fed beef

  10. 1. You use the term meat heavy (high protein) keto, keto is high fat moderate protein low carb. For instance my protein intake is 90 g or less per day.

    I have been living this lifestyle for one year. I've lost 44" on my body including 7" around my waist, my HGA 1C went from a 7.32 a 5.4. My blood pressure went from borderline high to an average of 100 / 50. My fasting blood glucose went from an average of 127 to an average of 91.

    1st, I'm a heart patient with a pacemaker and a chronic Arrhythmia called sick sinus syndrome.

    Since starting keto By arrhythmia and events of atrial fibrillation Have decreased by 33%.

    2nd My HDL is up to 71

    3rd My HDL to LDL ratio is 3.5

    4th Before I started this lifestyle I was living as a vegetarian eating a very clean mediterranean style diet. My blood pressure continued to rise, my weight continued to rise, my medications were doubled and my HGA 1C went from 5.9 to 7.1 in a matter of 2 years following a primarily fruit, vegetable and grain based diet.

    I'm not hungry anymore, I've got complete control of binge eating, I don't crave sweets anymore, I have more energy, I don't suffer from the 2 o'clock a Fatigue, and I get much deeper sleep.

  11. You lost me at “heavy meat” diet; that’s a lie. Keto is a moderate protein diet and you can get that protein from salmon, eggs, cheese, etc. I don’t think most people would consider 4 oz of protein a “heavy meat” diet. I did catch your reference to the environment. That’s the real agenda here.

  12. The first 15 seconds of your opening lines are a complete fallacy. You asked if a meat heavy ketogenic diet be healthy in the long-term?

    From there I knew how this video was going to go. First let me say, that KETO is not a meat heavy diet. In fact, keto can also be a plant based diet. What Keto focuses on are the macro-nutrients 70-75% fat, 20-25% Protein, & 5-10% carbs.

    I must stress that Keto counts the NET carbs and not the total carbs. So from confused listeners that trust your advice, you’re already giving them incorrect information. Let me say this again.
    IT’s not meat heavy and it’s not even protein heavy. There are options to do Keto by substituting animal foods with plant foods. Then you make another fallacy by comparing weight loss with also influenza and chemo.
    The fallacy is that influenza and chemo are not diets. There’s a difference when trying to compare a keto with a sickness or treatment.

    From that illogical statement, I knew there was nothing rational that you could really present, but I still continued to listen.

    You stated reports from the U.S. News and World Reports which ranked Keto friendly diets are at the very bottom as if there was any merit to the claim. I also read a time when Doctors stated that smoking cigarettes were good for your health (1950’s). Then your tone changes when you stated about giving up most fruits. On KETO, you’re actually eating some of the highest anti-oxidants such as blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc…

    The 10 published studies you stated is based off people doing a questionnaire. Any study that is based on (fill in the circle which best describes how you feel), has no merit in my opinion. More questions needs to be asked, such as, were they smokers, were they eating trans-fat, or unhealthy processed foods, etc.. Keto is based on quality of foods and not the quantity. So I consider this video: Debunked

  13. What about nuts and seeds. I thought that if you examine our teeth you find that we are built for chewing down nuts and seeds. Plants and trees make so much abundance of these as well maybe there’s a rhyme hear. Definitely stay plant based no matter.

  14. veggie keto diet or fish keto diet is also possible, you don't need to eat fat steaks and greasy pork. thats wrong too.. high amount of protein in keto diet is not acceptable. After keto adaptation you lower fat in your keto diet, women have to start keto diet differently and slowly as well. Also training is effective on keto diet, it doesn't take your muscles, as if you be on another diet. It take your fat. Thats what Tim ferris said, only 10% succeed on keto diet, you have to be ocd to maintain it properly. Low carb diet is easier and also effective plus +16 fasting.
    I am on my week 2 keto diet as a person who doesn't eat meat, coconut oil and paste, tahini, hummus, butter, spinach and fat coffee. Had some fish in the beginning. I lost 4 kg already and feel good, i don't eat often, but i feel good and no sugar really helps to loose weight. Was a bit loose in the beginning with energy, but than it went up. I wouldn't keep it forever, but i ll stick with min sugar, carbs and healthy fat. If you eat shitty vegan processed food, it is the same for your body if you eat shitty meat oil food.

  15. Yeah Dr. Kahn all the people who no longer need medication for diabetes on the Keto diet should eat carbs so that they can get back on blood sugar lowering meds? Are you kidding me? As a doctor you should be encouraging healing rather than pushing your vegan agenda.

  16. This video lacks credibility and there is no science.
    Obviously complete lack of "hard" data.
    When people quote the US News and World report as a piece of evidence, it shows no depth in their research.
    The vegans are looking to negate the Low carb diets with epidemiology study because Low carb is more balanced.
    Just eating real food; no processed, no sugar and no omega6 oils, very simple

    Have a look at the Virta study that was recently published that shows how they can reverse T2DM.
    I see more videos on youtube about ex-vegans than ex-keto

    I have been a low carb for years and my medical reports every year seems to be getting better even at 63 yrs old.
    I am still looking for a vegan cyclist friend that can beat me on the hills
    Plant based diet lack b12, vitamin a, omega3, iron and so many more.
