If the person is talking about ‘weight’, this is a sure sign their understanding of the body is flawed. Weight is basically meaningless. Weight is mass x gravity. A fat and unhealthy body may weigh very little compared to a much healthier, mostly muscled person. For example, an obese with 45% fat 11 year old may weigh 70kg whereas a 30 year old man with a body fat of 10% may weigh 80kg, but is vastly more healthy (by most accepted measurements).

How the hell is 30% carbs "low carb"? No wonder the study is flawed. Look at the studies with a true LCHF diet of 10% of less carbs vs a high carb diet. There are statistical significance in those studies especially on insulin sensitivity, blood glucose, fatty liver, HDL, triglycerides, reversal of type 2 diabetes, metabolic diseases, etc. Some me a study on that efficiency on a high carb diet equal to a true low carb diet

If you ask me, the keto diet is not for most people. It is just really difficult to follow and you feel exhausted. But the Agoge diet on the other hand feels great, and it works too.

absolute rubbish. you cant trust any study because people lie, the psychology and funding is always flawed. il tell you now carbs contain no real nutrition and will leave you weak and hungry just lost 4kg for first time in 35yrs on low carb, high eggs, walking, fasting and veg and meat i mean think about bread wheat and carbs is basically what the lowest birds feed on. there is nothing in it for humans. like feasting on what the muscles of the sea feed on. we should never touch it

a low carb diet is les tha 5% carb not 30%... so its almost the same diet to start they where comparing

30% of calories from carb is not considered low carb. What kind of study is this?!

30% of calories from carbohydrate is not low carb. Even remotely.

It would be a shame for you not to get rid of body fat while other normal people are able to shed weight quickly with Okibetonic Secrets (just google search it).

I read lots of people keep on talking about Okibetonic Secrets. But I'm uncertain if it is good. Have you ever try this popular weight loss diet plan?

In the end, we're all different. Some people excel on keto and even carnivore diets, and good for them. I'm not part of that group, I do really well healthwise and weightwise on a high carb diet with protein and less fat. I'm also much happier. I've tried keto and carnivore keto and never ever again 😆 no thanks

Hi, have you thought about this diet plan called the Okibetonic Secrets? My work buddy says it helps people lost tons of weight. Is that possible? I also read numerous good review relating to this diet plan. Thoughts?

I'd love to see carnivore vs plant based (whole foods) studies

conrrado doente . 7 months ago

Guys, losing weight does not need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I'll give you some advice right now. Search a diet plan called Custokebon Secrets. Seriously, that course has changed my entire life. I probably shouldn't even be talking about it because I don't want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I am in a good mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

2:29 - are you kidding me? 30% of calories from carbs is NOT a "low-carb" diet. This study is high-carb VS moderate-carb. Of course they did not find a significant difference.


methanial73 . 8 months ago

30% of calories from carbs isn't low carb.

What is the best product or brand to lost a lot of fat? I read plenty of superb reviews on the net about how Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has anyone tested out this popular weight loss diet plan?


RicksRav4 . 8 months ago

The best diet is the one you can stick to? I can stick to cereal, milk, and toast for breakfast, peanut butter and jelly with diet soda for lunch, and pizza and beer or Kentucky fried chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner, and Ice cream and cookies for dessert . NOW THATS A DIET I CAN STICK TO!!!

Diet Plan known as Custokebon Secrets kept showing up here on different youtube videos and I thought they were scams. However after my mate follow it, and finally lost crazy amounts of weight by using it without starving herself. I'm persuaded. You should not take my own word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine.

Trying the diet out and getting good results is the best study you could do for yourself

I don’t believe anything people say about low fat diets. I just don’t want to hear it.


Hugo . 12 months ago

The only ultra big problem here : 30% carbs is not low carb diet. Is a surgery with 30% risk of death considered a "low death surgery " ? Would you go o an airplane with 30% chance of accident ? You decide.

Why would you take advice from someone who doesn't really look in shape?

Dane Murphy

Dane Murphy . 1 year ago

i don’t feel that a 13 pound loss over 12 months is a good sign that participants were being strict with their diets. i really think that in order to get true results that reflect the purpose of the study, you would have to seek highly motivated individuals looking to change their lives while having daily supervision and communication to overcome the temptation of having a “slip up”.

if you wanna lose weight you will lose weight.


Jordan . 1 year ago

Fam how you taking 30% of your calories from carbs and saying that’s low carb?

Young Naughty

I don’t understand why I’m really listening to this fat guy telling us about the low carb and low fat


Tiberius . 1 year ago

I have lost weight on both but low carb high fat is better for me because it suppresses my hunger and I only have to eat twice a day.


ClassicExampleBand . 1 year ago

Low fat diets are worthless. People have been failing on low fat diets for 40 years. Low carb diets are basically only getting popular now.


Petarosus . 1 year ago

Im sick and tired of these morons....... I DONT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT!! NOBODY DOES. WE WANT TO BURN FAT.... THe most important part about burned fat is gonne!!! Who cares IF I lose 12 pounds of muscle.... thats failure NOT archievement. 99% of these studies are useless cause they measure weight loss . NOBODY WANTS WEIGHT LOSS! WE WANT FAT LOSS!!!! Why low carb makes more weightloss than low fat??? Cause carbs hold water.... so its more water loss. ALL THE STUDIES ARE USELESS. This does show uselesness of nerds doing practicals studies actually.


nooks12 . 2 years ago

Except with a low fat diet, you're hungry all the time. And, studies have shown that carbs (especially too many of them) have deleterious effects on health.

Veg Ahimsa

Veg Ahimsa . 2 years ago

Of course the macros are not important. When people hear low carb, they eat meat. When they hear low carb, they don't know what that means. If you want to survive: high fruit and vegetables intake, low saturated fat... Which means low meat.

ale189251 . 2 years ago

30% carbs are low carb? The problem with these studies is that the people are always "healthy". I wanna see the sickest motherfu** do this thing. I want people in wheelchair role up and then we see who can walk and with what diet. Thats true healing.

Ha, they likely ate fewer calories because they were cooking all their own meals and didn't want to spend more time cooking way more than they could reasonably eat.

Yeah but low carb I a lot healthier because it doesn’t spike insulin and you get a lot mor vitamins from 1 cup of broccoli than 1 cup of potatoes

D.E.B. B

D.E.B. B . 2 years ago

Cooking is a 'process'. So everything you cook, is also a processed food. Anything which undergoes pasteurization, is ALSO a 'processed food'. Homogenized milk is also a processed food. Waiting for that milk to separate into skim milk and cream? A process which changes the natural state of the food. In fact, even washing your veggies is 'processing'. Cereals are ALL processed foods. So are all breads. By the time you eliminate all the 'processed foods', there's not much left to eat.

This study did NOT count calories...that is why some people gained weight in the study.... ANY diet that cuts calories will cause you to lose weight ... however a low carb diet is superior in EVERY way... Here's a summary of 23 studies on the matter...


Marco . 2 years ago

I often have to argue with people of both sides. I had to learn on myself how both camps are effective but also detrimental to health on the long run for different reasons, fatty acids depletion vs thyroid and adrenals impair, etc. So as an equal macros diet such as the zone works as long as hypocaloric. Fasting works too. Combining days of low carb with days of low fat with days of equal ratio (in calories) and less energy intake, and regular fasting, this is what works at best to me. This ideological war of diets has to end!


Hugin . 2 years ago

The truth is that carbs, especially grains, sugar, soy, beans, make you fat. Nice try Shlomo.


SnoreFlavored . 2 years ago

This should be titled "Low-Carb and Low Fat Diets Get Similar Results," but we use inflammatory sassy language to clickbait negativity.


Krolestwo-Polska . 2 years ago

Sorry, this is BS, 30% carbs it is NOT low carb diet ...they are wasting money on those trials...
