Hey guys, I’m Siobhan a second-year medical inhabitant Today we’re attacking a super controversial issue and that’s The Keto Diet The question is – is the keto diet actually starting you live longer? or could it be actually killing you faster? The keto diet is a very low carbohydrate diet. About 75% of calories come from fatty 20% from protein and merely 5% from carbs It’s become one of the more popular diets online and it’s been praised for weight loss, centre health, diabetes management and some even believe it combats cancer. But others think it’s probably just a fad diet and it’s just gonna come and go.Just this week, there was a groundbreaking article from The Lancet which wholly varied the conversation It’s an article that looked at how much carbohydrates people are feeing and if that affected life expectancy. By the end of this video you should be able to make an trained decision about what you want to do with your diet And then I’m gonna* push* you to share this with beings you care about because this could actually affect how long “hes living”.* violin intro dallies* So those of you who’ve been following my outing in research hospitals at the new physician know that about six weeks ago I started the keto diet. and the above reasons I did that is because Overnight I find they’re just so many microchips and snacks and candy and … I- This whole year I feels like I have digressed from my normal wonts and so I various kinds of time needed like a reset and I figured that keto would do that. And it did. like I lost a couple of pounds I put on last year and I haven’t been having carbohydrate craves It was great. So this week when I was snapping through my computer I saw this article And I figured it was gonna tell me that the lower the carbs you dined the longer “were living” But that’s not exactly what it says. So the study started about 30 years ago, when they banked a whole assortment of adults from four different communities in the US They recruited about 15,000 adults and then had them do the investigations and they retained line of their health and they tracked them over about 30 times .* okay, that’s deep* So let’s suppose these skittles represent the people in the study First let’s divide them into the amount of carbs they eat in a date. The yellowed ones the low-carb group. And so these parties about less than 40% of their calories from carbs. The green ones of the moderate carb group. So these guys bought approximately half of the calories from carbs. And the blood-red ones are the high-pitched carb group where they get over 70% of their calories from carbs. Of track this is a streamlined modeling and in the study they worked with actually figment statistical frameworks to get lots of accurate information. So looking at mortality within these groups. It turned out the low-carb( yellow-bellied) group and the high-carb( red) group actually died faster than that middle-of-the-road lettuce radical. So it looked like Goldilocks and the three carries. The middle 50% carb group actually lived a long time. And you can see that it has this U-shape, and we actually call that a U-shaped relationship.They’re estimating that in this in the low-carb group and the medium-carb group, That was almost a four-year difference in their life expectancy. That’s like high school. That’s university. That’s so many being events That’s huge. I represent, we can’t ignore that. Definitely not what I expected. Definitely a huge shock to hear. Question 2* So then the next logical question is if you have lower carbs you’re eating more obesities and proteins Does it matter what types of fattens and proteins you’re actually munching? So they went back to the database and they looked at all the people and they wanted to see the group that devours chiefly animal makes. So they’re eating fleshes and cheese, lamb pork, beef, chicken all of that compared to the people who are eating plant-based proteins and flabs. So they’re eating nuts and peanut butters and seeds and they’re having lots of vegetables.And regrettably all those meat lovers out there, it was very clear that people devouring plant-based proteins and paunches were living longer than those who ate the animal proteins and solids. And that’s tough for me. I actually certainly love a good steak.* pleasure* Ooo boiii< 3 owww So you might be thinking: “Hold on. Hold on Siobhan I don’t live in one of those four communities in the US maybe these results don’t really apply to me? ” Like me. I live in Canada. I don’t live in the US. But the authors were smart and they thought of this.So they did what we call a’ meta analysis’ Where they took studies that were similar and had results from all around the world and threw it all together to see if those results hold true. So when they took the data from other duties in North America, Europe, Asia They witnessed the same upshots. People devouring the plant-based diets we’re living longer. So I certainly don’t think that we can discount these results. Okay, so after all of this what is the main take-home message? Basically, you probably shouldn’t be eating a low-carb diet that’s high in flesh commodities because it would seem these people are actually dying faster. Is that the end of keto? Well, you know if you choose to do keto the recommendations from this study would be that you should be impelling it all about plant-based protein So lots of nuts and veggies and healthy lubricants That’s what you should be get your protein and your paunches from. So basically don’t fix the mistake of thinking that keto is just about bacon and fat and grease Because that’s probably not the healthiest thing for you Okay.So now that we have the information we need to decide how are we gonna actually change our own behaviors to indicate which is something we speculate. And I affirm that is the hardest thing: It’s actually deepening your action. So with you guys as my witness, here is my plan: I am gonna be focusing on the sources and the types of foods that I’m eating rather than sort of check carbs I’m is about to be determine sure I’m downplaying the amount of fleshes and animal products that I’m eating. I too need to minimize the huge amount of carbs that I make I was gobbling before. With all those considers in the midst of the light and the carbohydrate and the candy so, you know, a high-carb isn’t good either. and I’m gonna try to affected that sweet recognise of carbs by having a lot of veggies and legumes and all those things that I actually cherish. But I merely need to make sure I prep and propose in advance so that they’re ready for me to have in the day.What’s your schedule gonna be? If you want to commit to something write it in the comments below. I will read it. I’ll be your witness. And I know it’s gonna be a contentious topic. So made me with your remarks. I actually want to start a discussion, a dialogue. I will speak your comments and I want to hear what you have to position. And then I crave you to send this video to people that you care about. Because looking at this evidence, you can see that stirring alters now could actually save them years on their life.Anyway next week, I’ll be seeing you guys from the hospital vlogging So don’t forget to subscribe and turn on your notifications if you don’t want to miss that. Otherwise, I’ll be chatting with you guys next week. So bye for now< 3 #livelonger.
