Therefore Keto diet isn't good ?
It depends on the person, most all of it does. Each person is different in what their requirements are to be healthy. There's only one you...He's giving some great information and I'm sure it's based on what works for him. I don't think he's a quack. At least until I see him on a late-night infomercial selling something for the low, low price of 19.95. "But wait! Order in the next 10 minutes and receive 2! Just pay shipping & handling." (Said in a deep, announcer-guy voice in my head😊).

I'm so glad Hinduism requires Hindus to be vegetarian.

After his speeach I bet there will be another “Doctor” advocating red meat and coconut oil and olive oil saying it’s the right way to have a great brain! Who’s right and who’s wrong? We should believe in our own experience, how do we feel when we never eat certain foods ! I personally feel so sick and weak if I only eat nuts and vegetables! But when I eat a good steak I feel like a super man with a super brain! Why is that? Anyone?

Does this mean Keto diet causes Alzheimer’s disease?

Sadly there are thousands of downvotes. Like Dr. MacDougall says, "people want to hear good news about their bad habits."

Thats eye opening!
Thanks doc.
Vegetarianism is what world needs! Proud to be vegetarian forever since childhood.
This guy is awesome!

I would love to know what Dr. Barnard thinks of the Keto diet which is heavy on animal proteins, dairy products, and high in complex carbs. It's an effective diet because it eliminates all sugar, including fructose (except in berries) and simple carbs: breads, pastries, crackers. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thank you.
Akshay Jain
Swap your donuts and cakes for blueberries and grapes.
Geoff Baker
Absolute total nonsense..!
Bravo! Excellent speech! Thank you so much, Dr. Barnard!

Why comfort will ruin your Power Foods for the Brain | Neal 12 months ago   12:35

After documenting and researching over 50,000 coaching interactions in the workplace, Bill Eckstrom shares life-altering, personal and professional development ideas through the introduction of the “Growth Rings.” The rings illustrate how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort and how being in discomfort is the only way to sustain growth. You’ll be amazed at the world-changing outcomes discomfort can have on your life and the lives of others.

Bill Eckstrom is an entrepreneur, author, speaker, outdoorsman and father of three. With a passion deeply rooted in growth and development, Bill has always been fascinated by the role a coach has on the performance of individuals and teams. As a result, he founded the EcSell Institute whose sole focus is to educate, track and measure coaching effectiveness for leaders within organizations around the world. This has led to hundreds of keynotes, published articles and e-books created from the research and documentation of coaching interactions and outcomes. You can learn more about the EcSell Institute here: https://www.ecsellinstitute.com/
