  1. I just started this diet August 13th ( 2 weeks ago) and started feeling weak and dizzy… I’m on blood pressure pill and water pill….. In the first few days my blood pressure dropped to 123/81, but the past few days Ive been really week. I went to the drugstore yesterday to do my blood pressure in the afternoon and it was 101 over something. I called the dr right away and he said to half my pill. I did that today and went this morning to do my blood pressure because I’m still really weak and dizzy……and just walking in from my car made me worse….. my blood pressure is 85/49….. now the dr is away till after our Labour Day weekend next week……. I am following the diet from Dr Westman that he gave to one of his patients named Brian….

  2. The blue zones are one of the longest living people… the majority of their diet is legumes, veggies, whole grains, potatoes, fish and little meat. I followed Valter Longo's research and have not only lost weight but blood markers are back to normal. Find what works for you.

  3. I eat a keto diet, my breakfast is 1 cup of black coffee, 2 eggs and 1 stick of butter, i get a lot of weird looks when i eat that way

  4. I mean, yeah, a low carb keto diet is okay if you don't care about strength or endurance I mean, if you want those then you need lots of carbs. Keto diet should ONLY be an emergency diet for morbidly obese people who need to lose weight asap.

  5. Reductionist nonsense. All the science to optimal health shows starch and a WFPB diet. While animal foods promote cancer and myriad diseases.

  6. I grow up eating white rice twice a day with vegetable and beans in Brazil and was NEVER fat. To me this diet is fake.

  7. I was 301 lbs 1 year and 9 months ago. I went on a LCHF lifestyle, and went from 301 to 193 as of 1/24/17. Happy holidays. My goal is 188 lbs. My Ketones 3.6 mmol, and blood glucose 78 mg/dL 👍🏾, I go to the gym only 3-4 times a week. It really works.
