It’s been used to treat epilepsy since the 1920s, and it’s had promising outcomes from treating Type 2 Diabetes.

    Not just about the weight loss. Eat keto and function better! VERY limited hunger cravings, delicious food and sharper mind. At least that is what I notice. I do keto on and off. Usually a week on and then a month or two off. I can drop the 5lbs I gain over the month or two in a week, super easy. Not water either.

    A bit more thoroughness would have been nice. Your "Why we imagine aliens the way we do" video was even longer than this

    You've essentially made a video that says... nothing... After 3 minutes and 48 seconds, you have not given an opinion, you've shown very little research, you have done nothing but say its a hypothesis... This sounds like someone justifying why it's hard to stay on a diet: 2:58Seriously guys, these videos should have more of a point, or at least have a bit more substantive research that helps people make a decision. Or don't make them, please.

    Keto WORKS. Ignore this video... I've been KETO for over 2 1/2 years. KETO is NOT Atkins. Worthless video.

    @Kido Edozien he never said he didn't put himself in a caloric deficit. when you only eat fat and protein, it doesn't spike your insulin and ghrelin, 2 hormones that's specific purpose is to store fat and make you hungry. your blood sugar is stable and doesn't drop. thats why you feel like your appetite is satisfied once in ketosis and without having to track your calories you're still in a deficit.
