The producers did not receive any
funding to make this film from food manufacturers. One of the clear signs
that we misunderstand a disease is our inability to treat or combat it – when you look at the data on the ongoing rise in obesity and diabetes, and you ask, "Is it possible that the whole world has failed to eat healthy food? Perhaps we have been given wrong advice – since the 1960s,
The American Heart Association tells us that saturated fats are bad for cardiovascular health, and we should eliminate them from the diet.

– [Nina Tycholes] It's hard to
think of another policy that has done so much damage, and is still a big mistake. For Americans it 's cardiovascular disease. – [Dr. Sarah Hallberg] The
manipulation of data… the push to cut down on fat really got us in trouble. – [Dr. Tim Knox] I think a
low-fat diet… is genocide. – [Woman's voice] Saturated fat increases the risk of cardiovascular disease
Doctors have always warned us
that eating fat will doom us This started when overwhelming evidence was found that saturated fat is harmful They warned us over and over again The more animal protein you eat , especially red meat, increased The possibility of contracting various diseases. You are fat because you eat a lot of fat. [Alyssa Gallagher] So a
little fat. Low fat. Low fat. Low fat. Low fat. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
Dietary Guidelines have set nutrition standards for every
American for 40 years, including our children in school, food programs for the poor and old, for our national military, for doctors, dietitians and their experts.

It has been proven in our minds that fats are harmful, specifically saturated fats found
in meat, dairy products and some tropical oils such as
coconut and palm oils. – [woman's voice] Carbohydrates are at the
base of the food pyramid. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Organizing
Our Food Pyramid Our fat phobia motivates us to make carbohydrates
a mainstay in our food choices – [Dr. Ebert Sher] I think
the food pyramid is mighty if you stand on your head! Where you have to turn the
pyramid upside down. – are you kidding! This will put butter
and fat at the top of the– Flip the Food Pyramid IMMEDIATELY! – Food is stable! – [Dr. Mark Heimann] We
misunderstood the whole thing. The government and the Food Pyramid have advised us to eat 6 to 11 servings of bread, rice, cereal and pasta each day. It should be called a food tombstone! – [Dr. Mark Heyman] I'm Dr. Mark Heyman, a functional medicine specialist who focuses specifically on the use of food as medicine.

The healing power of food was realized. And I'm pretty sure a low-
fat diet didn't make us healthy. – [Dr. Sarah Hallberg] I think a
low-fat diet hasn't been proven heart-healthy. It was nothing but a massive experiment that millions of people underwent, and it failed miserably. wait a moment! Didn't you see?! Do you not practice medicine
to find out who comes to your clinic?! To see the trouble caused by this idea, it to me does not make sense! – [Dr. Mark Heymann] For years I thought that eating fat would make me fat and that saturated fat would make me heart disease and kill me. But a growing group of experts has refuted the science about the harmfulness of saturated fats – [Dr. Zoe Harkham] It really surprised me that there was no evidence. – [Nina Tycholes] It was just an idea!
But it was spread like wildfire among all Americans
despite the lack of evidence for it.

– [Dr. Salem Yusef] What is the evidence? There is no! Official government guidelines, called Dietary Guidelines, tell us how to
stay healthy by limiting saturated fat to just a few bites a day and increasing carbohydrates to more than half
our daily calories. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] I'm here to tell you that this advice is upside down. The perception that eating
fat causes obesity is wrong. The science that saturated fats cause heart disease is misleading.

Unfortunately, they have swept our people down a deadly path in which the epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes is spreading on a large scale. – [Gerry Taubes] We screwed up! This often happens in science, traditional medicine clung to the wrong interpretation, and made a huge mistake, and now we are living through the obstacles of that. – [Reporter] The obesity report card issued today proves the failure of the state. – [Press reporter] The battle against obesity has been going on for years. [Michelle] One in
three children in this country is overweight or obese. – [Dr. Mehmet Oz] The estimated cost
of healthcare services is estimated at $200 billion
and continues to increase. – [PRESS RELEASE] The
research behind weight loss and health may be more complex than you think. – [Journalist] Despite all attempts to combat the problem, its rates in adults rose
in 23 states last year. [Reporter] Why are the American people getting fat despite government efforts from calorie education to
new school lunch programs? – [Gary] One of the main goals of science is to check the validity of axioms. Here, for example, an idea… that seemed logical to us turned out to be wrong. [Text: “The delusion of fat”
narrated by: Dr.

Mark Heimann] – During the many years I had been to different doctors, I was upset that they gave me another shot, claiming it was a different kind. This is the injection that's supposed to help
your body make insulin. Their list of side effects is longer than your arm and they won't make you feel better at all for diabetes or obesity. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] Judy has had type 2 diabetes all her life. Like her father, who passed away from complications from the
disease when she was a teenager. For decades, Judy has tried to control her blood sugar. Although I
did everything I was asked , I gained weight! Then I had no choice but to give up. – [Correspondence] This
health epidemic worries Americans… – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Judy is not alone. – [Reporter] Reports show that the obesity epidemic in the United States is worsening. – [Cynthia McFadden]
Americans are losing their battle against obesity. – [Journalist] The rate of obesity among children has doubled during the past two decades. – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
75% of the population today is overweight or obese,
and one in two of us has type
2 diabetes or prediabetes.

– [Dr. Sarah Hallberg]
Type 2 diabetes… drains us financially… it crushes us! – [Mr. Dr. Tim Knox]
Currently, a diabetic in America spends $900 a month on insulin. [Gerry Taubes] And
our health care system spends about a billion dollars a day. The health care system doesn't have
enough money to pay for these expenses. – [Dr. Jason Feng] The financial cost is huge, and the human suffering exceeds
ten times that! – [Dr. Mark Heimann] In a generation, we've gone from this to that. – [Bill Maher] Looking at the
footage from the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11, I was struck by the thinness of the audience. We looked like a completely different human race! – [Dr. Jason Feng] I think
heart attacks, strokes… cancer, blindness, amputation are all preventable suffering. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] The question
is what is the source of these diseases and what causes them? When I was in medical school , type
2 diabetes only affected older adults.

Today, it affects children as
young as three years old. The more we take a step towards curing the disease, the worse the situation will be. – [Dr. Jason Feng] You can't
just prescribe medication for a nutritional disease and expect it to improve! But that's what doctors do: "You have type 2 diabetes, let me give you some pills." – [Mr. Dr. Tim Knox] That's the wrong approach! It treats the symptom, not the disease. But if you provide the patients with proper nutrition, their health will improve! – [Markiss] He advised me to go on
the keto diet, and after six weeks I saw a wonder. Diabetes is gone! – [Ally] It's like magic and I don't need insulin anymore. – [Mary] Two years later,
I lost 197 pounds. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
problem is that we have been confused and brainwashed over decades
by these nutritional principles; Where we believe that fats are harmful to a certainty, especially saturated animal fats.

– [Dr. Mitchell Razlin] You can
lose weight by relying on these animal proteins,
as in the Atkins diet, but you are putting your health at risk. – [Dr. Sarah Hallberg] We were, and still are, following the same dogmatic principles. That was what we said, and what we will continue to say. Unfortunately, nothing hinders progress in nutrition science but dogmatism! – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Our alternative ideas were attacked , doctors labeled charlatans for ignoring guidelines against fats, and patients were advised to cut down on
carbohydrates instead. In South Africa, Dr. Tim Knox 's four-year ordeal was threatened with having his medical license revoked for prescribing a
low-carb, high-fat diet to a young mother.

– [Mr. Dr. Tim Knox has
attacked the low-carb diet because of its effectiveness, and its high impact on financial returns from the medical profession. – [Dr. Eric Westman] I'm
an internal medicine specialist, and I can cure all the conditions I
've ever had with… drugs, just by changing the type of food! Isn't that wonderful! – [Dr. Jason Feng] It's
completely free, requires no special equipment, or special surgeries. It is a completely natural method, and has been used for thousands of years. – [Dr. Eric Westman] I can
cure not just obesity, but type
2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

Gradually reduce the dose of
medication for patients as they improve. – [Mr. Dr. Tim Knox] It's a
great discovery similar to the discovery of insulin or antibiotics, obviously. – [Dr. Eric Westman] What's clear to
me is that diets… low-fat diets may be effective,
but low-carb diets… more effective, and that's what the
scientific research indicates. – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
Nick Brown's diet is a typical American man's diet. – [Nick Brown] Hi, how are you? – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
Nick eats a mix of: proteins , veggies, and grains, and occasionally drinks beer. And one of his favorite foods is– [Nick Brown] Thank
you, sir, have a nice day. – To you too. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Pizza. – [Nick Brown] Looking forward to pizza? Maybe! I would get angry if you were denied pizza.

– [Dr. Mark Hayman] Nick and Tracy share a unique feeding experience, and so is Tracy. – [Tracy Seidel] Yeah,
I made a plan for this week. – [Dr. Mark Hyman and Cynthia. [Cynthia Castle] Thank you very much.
– [Butcher] You are most welcome. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Three
people with normal metabolisms who don't take medication are on
two different diets. Let's compare low-carb diets
with low-fat diets. I have quite a few new recipes, and I wonder if I
'm using the right ingredients. – [Nurse] Get on that little scale– [Dr.

Mark Hayman] Before,
during and after the experiment… Each of them is weighed, his blood pressure and sugar are measured, and cholesterol is measured – you have an alcohol content in your blood – – [Dr. Mark Heymann]
We'll keep track of your blood sugar throughout the experiment. – [Dr. Michelle Freshwater] Are you ready?
– certainly. – Well let's start.
– Come on. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] using
a continuous glucose monitor, or CGM.

– – [Dr. Michelle Freshwater] Does it bother you like that? – [Nick Brown] No.
– [Dr. Michelle Freshwater is good. – [Tracy Seidel] I
just got a glucose meter, it says here it's ready to measure,
so you have to put it here… Done! The result is now: 94.
[Text: 5.2 mmol/L] – d. Mark Hayman] For the first week, we put them on a low-carb ketogenic diet with less than 20 grams
of carbs per day, plenty of healthy fats and
a moderate amount of protein. The diet is designed to keep
blood sugar low, but it's not
allowed according to the
US Dietary Guidelines. In the second week, we turn them into the State Department of
Agriculture plan: MyPlate meal plan. That plan includes 2,000 calories a day, is subsidized by the government, is low in fat and features whole grains , lean meats
, and vegetable oils, and more than half of your
daily calories come from carbohydrates.

Week One: The
Low Carb High Fat Diet – [Nick Brown] We keep stirring… It's almost ready, so excited to try it! I am also excited to try the
recipes and see the results of a whole week of following this diet. – [Tracy Seidel] I'm so glad I'm doing that, it's so amazing to me. – [Dr. Mark Heimann] Keto recipes are
rich in natural, healthy fats like: eggs, butter
, avocado, olive oil, nuts, seeds, and even
grass-fed beef.

– [Cynthia Castle] I love new recipes, so this is good and exciting! – [Tracy Seidel] That's buttered eggs, that's actually their name in the recipe, because we cook it with butter, I used butter from grass-fed beef, and then I decided to add a little avocado, and just some tomatoes, salt and pepper. It is a very simple and easy recipe. – Now I prepare the ketogenic zucchini boats, where I empty half of the zucchini, cook it with some onions and spinach, then add some olives and olive oil and let the ingredients cook a little. – [Cynthia Castle] I
think food fits my body. I'm curious to see the result after a week. – [Nick Brown] Delicious! – [Dr. Mark Heimann] By adding
healthy fats to every meal and cutting out processed carbs, all three keep you fuller for longer.

– [Nick Brown] I honestly don't starve anymore. – [Tracy Seidel] This is day three of the strict keto diet. I've lost three and a half
pounds since I started! It is amazing! I feel better! I went for a trip to the mountains
on my bike yesterday, and my body was full of energy, and I wasn't hungry. – [Cynthia Castle] I'm still feeling full… even after three and a half hours! Normally I would be hungry after two or two and a half hours. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Carbohydrates are like wood – they start a fire, they quickly burn to ashes and cause your blood sugar to drop
and your body to feel an urgent need for more fuel.

In order to keep your metabolic rates regular, you need to eat constantly
and then burn carbohydrates, eat more and so on. See how carbohydrates
like bread, pasta, rice, and even whole grains affect your blood sugar. While the effect of protein is much less. It raises blood sugar by a small percentage, but fats, take a look at it! It hardly makes a difference
to your blood sugar. Eating fat is like lighting a
fire with wood.

It gives you a stable and long-term source of fuel. This is one of the reasons why I prefer
low-carb diets because it doesn't take as
much willpower to resist food. They don't spike your hormones and insulin levels every time you eat and then drop to zero and make you
crave bread , cookies, or something in between meals. Thus, it is easier to resist overeating. Day Six: It's lunch time.

I'm going for leftover fried Italian cabbage with a little sour cream. I'm still not hungry,
but it's lunch time. – And the cool thing here is that it's very easy to test for glucose. The sensor is here. Then I unlock my phone and go to the app it's connected to. – I just put the phone near it. – Make a doo-boop and then get the score. – Excellent. – It's really cool. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Continuing on a low-carb,
high-fat diet all week had their blood sugar run in straight lines without spikes or dips. – It's stable. It was usually
85 to 90. Although I just ate, it's only 83.

In fact, I checked it a few minutes ago and it dropped six points. I want to keep it forever because it's so much fun to check my
sugar all day. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] By the
end of the week all three had lost weight and felt better. – How was your week? It went great, thank you. Well, I lost about
2 and a half pounds of fat. How is your blood sugar level? – amazing. – Look! Your lean tissue
has not only decreased but increased slightly. You look healthy, boy. – Yes.
– Wow! the situation is stable. I always felt full, so I wondered
if I had eaten too much. Maybe.

A diet of more
fats, proteins, and fewer carbohydrates will make you feel full for sure. – [Dr. Mark Hyman]
Next week we'll be transitioning from low-
carb to low-fat, following the
American Diet's guidelines. – [Michelle] I can't wait to see the result of that system. – Me too. I'm a little afraid of what's going to happen. Is it possible that our theory of fats is wrong? Religious objections to eating meat at the turn of the 19th
century influenced American views.

But the major turning point came in 1955 when shocking news broke about the president's health. [Newscaster]
President Eisenhower's doctors diagnosing his sudden illness as a coronary thrombosis came
as a huge shock to us. President Eisenhower had
a heart attack in 1955. He spent 10 full days outside his office , highlighting the problem of heart disease. [News anchor]
The American people's loss of life from cardiovascular disease has risen to one million this year. The people were in a state of shock and desperately needed to know the reasons. – People asked: "What is the cause of heart disease?" – [Doctor] The
vital statistics before us here show that the incidence of these diseases in
America is the most among the countries of the world. – [Nina] There have been a number of
speculations about why this crisis happened. One is that it is due to a lack of vitamins, and the other reason is the
rising tide of automobile exhaust, due to the increasing number of cars. We expect 5 out of 10 men to be affected. We still don't know why and
we can't predict time or identity! Now we see that the reason was clear.

"Everyone was smoking." – Raleigh? – no thanks! I bring a box. – [TV Anchor]
Doctors smoke Camels the most. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Cigarettes were ubiquitous in the 1950s and
1960s. ♪ Spud is so refreshing ♪ ♪ Cigarette smoke ♪ ♪ It's the way to a happy mouth ♪ – Go ahead, Viceroy. – [Dr. Mark Heimann] Eisenhower
himself smoked four packs a day. What is your opinion? – Excellent. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Cigarette smoking rates are directly proportional to heart disease rates. This is despite the significantly reduced consumption of saturated fats . – Everyone was smoking. We now know that smoking causes or contributes to heart disease, but then the tobacco companies strongly denied this . "Smoking tobacco does not cause heart disease." Scientists asked: "So what is the reason for the increase in heart disease?" At the time, Ansel Benjamin Keys, who
was a pathologist at the University of Minnesota, put forward the theory that saturated fats and dietary cholesterol are the
cause of heart disease.

Well, you see, people have been eating butter for two thousand years, and then butter has been causing
heart disease since 1970? How did it cause
heart disease before that time? – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
Although America's consumption of sugar, refined oils and refined grains was on the rise at the time, Ansel Keyes focused on fats
as a cause of heart disease. – He said that the total cholesterol in your arteries will build up and block them and then you will have a heart attack, like hot oil under a cold stove pipe. That was his thesis. It's just a simple idea. It is illogical to
think that an ancient food caused a modern disease. But he repeated his thesis over and over, until people believed him. In the words of the
American writer Henry Louis Mencken, “For every complex problem, there is a simple and obvious solution, but it is wrong.” It is the biggest misinformation the American people have believed. The cholesterol idea . If you have high cholesterol, you are at increased risk of
a heart attack. And a stroke. Don't be delusional.

Explain this to your doctor and ask if
Lipitor is right for you. – It's profitable for companies to keep the idea that we need to lower cholesterol. – Cholesterol has become the bogeyman in cardiology, and the funny thing here is that we need cholesterol. Write it down. To repeat what I said, we simply try to control cholesterol. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Our goal is to lower the bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL cholesterol. It's very simple – it turns out that high
LDL cholesterol in the diet does not cause heart attacks or death It's not a cause .

When you take cholesterol out
of the equation and wonder, "Are all the people who eat too much
saturated fat and die, is heart disease the cause?" That's the point. Let's ignore it raises cholesterol, we all know that. Let's take it out of the equation and see. a For the bottom line, because that's what matters to us. And every time they did, the relationship fell apart. Because there is no relationship between the
amount of fat you eat in your diet and heart disease. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] We
now know that chronic inflammation from a diet
rich in sugar, refined grains, and refined vegetable oils is far more dangerous to our health. – [Brett] Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease, caused not by the accumulation of fat in the artery, but by inflammation. Cholesterol will try to solve the problem, but it will not cause harm. Damage comes first.

That's like accusing firefighters of starting the fire just because they came to put it out. Cholesterol is here to repair, not to cause damage. Inflammation is the primary cause of every disease that haunts us. The number one inflammatory substance in the American diet is sugar. That's it. Keep these two things in mind, and you 'll conclude that inflammation is making
it worse, and that sugar is the number one inflammatory substance we consume. This is the bottom line. [Woman's Voice] In
1951, Ansel and Margaret took their two oldest children to Oxford and
took a year off work. Then the couple continued their travels , measuring cholesterol and
surveying diet samples in several European and African countries. – There was a study he presented at Mount Sinai Hospital in 1953 which consisted of a graph of six countries. – [Andrew] did the research on only six countries around the world. Where he plotted the share of fat on the x-axis and coronary heart disease rates
on the y-axis and found a positive relationship. This was presented as evidence that there is a linear relationship between the amount of saturated fat
that people consume and their incidence of heart disease.

– But he specifically chose six
countries for this perfect correlation even though at the time
there was data available for 22 countries. – [Zoe] And when you
graph all those countries it produces a scatter chart. That straight line no longer exists. – Because there is no clear relationship. There is no link between fats and heart disease. It was then criticized
by statisticians who said, "You're obviously picking on your data." He realizes it's purely a hypothesis, that he doesn't have the evidence and then starts praising a country on a low-fat diet for
his idea, which is amazing because there's no concern that it would do harm.

The Hippocratic Oath states that prevention is better than cure. – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
Despite his critics, Keys was determined to prove his point. Then he continued his famous study
of the seven countries, where he traveled to the countries selected from his chart and studied the eating habits there and the prevalence of heart disease among people. In his study of the seven countries, he repeated the same mistake. I mean he chose those countries. – I think he chose those countries specifically to study the seven countries. He knew from the six- country graph that the countries that would be
on this straight line would support his hypothesis, for example: Italy and America are ideal for that hypothesis. And they both make the graph as wanted. But he turned a blind eye to countries like Switzerland, France and Germany where people
eat a lot of saturated fat and have very low rates of heart disease.

– The French were eating
all kinds of saturated fats, butter and cream and did not gain weight, which refutes his hypothesis, and they also did not suffer from heart disease. Their rates of heart disease were half of all Americans. And then everyone thought there was a contradiction. There was no contradiction. Because dietary fat simply does not cause obesity, nor heart disease. – So he's a very respected physiologist. It should be noted that President Eisenhower followed the advice of Ansel Keyes and stopped eating all
saturated fat and cholesterol until the day he died of heart disease in 1969. I can't ignore information like this. The Ansel Keyes hypothesis
about the heart diet remains the most influential theory in the history of dietetics. This is strange. Over the past 50
years, taxpayers have spent several billion dollars on research trying to prove that saturated fat causes heart disease, and yet they have failed to prove that hypothesis. And it remained – to this day – purely a hypothesis. – [Zoey] There's absolutely no corroboration for her veracity. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] Dr. Zoe
Harcomb is an obesity researcher who wrote her thesis on the lack of
evidence in dietary guidelines.

– My thesis resulted from my attempt to understand the cause of our obesity epidemic. – [Dr. Mark Hyman]
Zoe collected all primary data from randomized controlled clinical trials conducted prior to the release
of dietary guidelines. She then reanalyzed all the results in a process known as meta-analysis. – She was looking at the totality of the absolute evidence without selecting or excluding any study. So there's the Rose Corn Oil trial, the Low-Fat Diet Research Committee, the MRC Soybean Study, the Dayton Veterans Study
in Los Angeles, and the Lyrin Oslo Study. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] When I checked the results to see which groups
had the highest mortality, there was no difference at all. There is no health benefit for the groups that followed the low-fat diet. – I was astonished to discover that there is no evidence. Unprocessed dietary fats are not dangerous. It is not the reason. It is easy to claim that saturated fats are dangerous and should be avoided, but the evidence does not support this. – The question is how did the nutritional heart hypothesis become the basis of the guiding principles
of the diets of our country without a scientific basis to support it? The answer is Ansel Benjamin Keys.

– He was a bold character. His colleagues told me he was ready to argue with anyone to the end. He was able to join the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association. In 1961, the association issued the first advice that
resonated around the world asking people to stop eating saturated fat and cholesterol in order not to have a heart attack. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Until the early 1960s , Americans consumed nearly half of their daily calories from fat. We ate butter and bacon and eggs for breakfast and a roast for dinner without fear.
Gyms were still just an idea, and yet they were relatively skinny. The traditional advice until the 1960s was that carbohydrates make you gain weight. This is the strange thing. The popular saying at the time was that bread,
pasta, potatoes, rice, and pudding went straight to the hips. That's what my mother's generation thought.

– [Reporter] The diet
used in this study tasted delicious due to the use of more protein and fat. By 1960 came the thesis that dietary fats cause heart disease. During the 20 years, from the 1960s
to the mid-1980s, carbohydrates went from increasing obesity to being a heart-healthy diet. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
low-fat diet was ingrained in the minds of Keys' star in the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health. – If you lived in America at the time, you would think that this controversy has been settled, and that saturated fats cause heart disease, because they raise cholesterol, and we all know that cholesterol clogs the arteries. But there was an alternative hypothesis in England.

There has always been this competing theory that it is sugar, not fat, that causes heart disease. The main proponent of this
alternative hypothesis was John Yudkin and published it. And I think this is a prime example of how nutritional science can succeed or fail in America. Because instead of saying, "Okay, this is an interesting competing theory. Let's explore it and see if it's true or false." The scientist behind this alternative hypothesis did not earn anything
but blackmail and expelling him from the profession. – Ansel Keyes ruined his reputation, and kept following him. He did everything except insult his mother. – I think that Ansel Keyes knew that this hypothesis competed with his theory, so he did not want it to come to light, so that his hypothesis remains successful. It is obvious that the sugar industry prefers to point the finger at saturated fats. Recently discovered documents reveal that in 1965 she gave bribes to prominent Harvard researchers
to do so.

I paid them the equivalent of
$50,000 in current dollar value to produce two articles exonerating sugar and accusing saturated fats of being a cause of cardiovascular disease. We know this because we have the paper evidence, and their names are on the documents. This is an unethical act. The goal of the sugar industry was to get the nutrition community to believe and declare what they believed to be true , that dietary fat
was the problem, not sugar, and they paid researchers to do just that, and they were overwhelmingly successful in getting that message across. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] In 1977, a
Senate select committee headed by Senator
George McGovern determined the fate of the fat. Despite the objections of the scientists, the committee suggested the
low-fat diet for the people without any concrete evidence that it was healthy. I have begged you in my report and I repeat my request orally here for further research on the problem before we announce the final solution to the American people.

Well, I am of the opinion that
senators do not have the luxury of waiting to look into every piece of evidence as a research scientist. McGovern just wanted
to make that statement, and he said, "We don't have time to wait for the evidence." – They claimed that science is unstable. Hence the counterargument is that there is no time to wait. – And so they made the decision without any evidence. They ignored the warning of many people that this would cause an epidemic of obesity and diabetes.
They warned them and they ignored the warning. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] In 1980, a dramatic shift in the diet of Americans occurred when the United States government announced that the campaign against fat had
become official food policy.

[Nina] The first guidelines recommend eating 7 to 11 servings of bread, basically, every day. We're supposed to get
50-55% of our calories from carbohydrates, mostly from grains. It was first in history, when our government advocated a massive increase in carbohydrates and a reduction
in saturated fat consumption to less than 10% of
daily calories. At first, US guidelines
took a disastrous approach when an entire country recommended eating very high in
carbohydrates and low in fat without compelling evidence. Obesity slowly crept up in America from the mid-20th century onwards, but in the 1980s we noticed a sweeping increase. – It rose like a plane taking off. This makes us wonder, what happened at that time? – What happened in 1980 is that the US government
advised all Americans to stop eating fats
and increase carbohydrates. – Is it a coincidence? Maybe it is. But we need to investigate to see if it's just a coincidence.

What happened when we stripped fat from food? We replaced it with something much worse, which is sugar. – [Man] One, two, turn around. – [TV anchor] Low-fat Oreo. Less fat, better taste. – [TV Anchor]
New Low Fat Brownie, Muffin, and Cake Mix from Pillsbury. Try new decorations, too. – [TV Anchor]
Hershey's Fat-Free Syrup. – It tastes great. Let's be honest, fats are delicious. We knew that if we took the fat out of food, we had to replace it with something else that tasted great. – TV presenter] So
new flavorings were made to replace the fats. – But what is its source? Refined carbohydrates, increased sugar, and so there's been a massive influx in processed foods. – [TV anchor] He's
irresistible.

Everyone wishes to taste the new low-fat taste. – Good. – [TV presenter]
Fat-free continental yogurt, it's not low-fat, it's fat-free. Zero fat? unbelievable! But sugar was a much bigger problem than saturated fat. The food makers were well aware that if they eliminated
fat from the diet, they should replace it with sugar. Then they learned later that sugar is addictive. – It tastes amazing! – amazing. – I advise you to buy it. – [Group voice] We are! – This was the cause of the obesity epidemic. [Nina] Low-fat yogurt
, high in sugar. – Gorgeous!
Low fat peanut butter. – It is amazing. – [Nina] Low-fat salad dressing. – It's delicious. – [Nina] They are all
high in sugar or carbohydrates. Are you sure it's fat free? It turns out that all low-fat foods are high in carbohydrates. – This wasn't intentional but if you remove fat, which obviously is in people's
food choices, you should replace it with something else.

Instead of
foods tasting like cardboard, they will at least taste like sweet cardboard. Chocolate SnackWell sandwich biscuit. – It tastes great. What if I can't bake enough of them? These women will follow me. Hey, biscuit man,
show us what you've got in the box? The SnackWell phenomenon was a good example of the impact of the low-fat food industry. Where people thought they could eat a lot of those crackers –don't you see you're exaggerating a bit? – [Nina] was rich in
sugar and white flour. We advise you to make more, biscuit man! – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
American Heart Association has caused an obsession with low-fat foods. Food companies have spent
hundreds of thousands of dollars to add
this heart validation code to their products. – The cause of this is an obsession such as putting that symbol on chocolate crackers, or honey and hazelnuts or the like, all of which are high in sugar, but as long as they are low in fat they are healthy.

– [TV Anchor] Kellogg's Fruit Cereal is part of this nutritious breakfast. She seems to like it. – [Dr. Mark Heimann]
Healthy Low Fat Fruit Rings For Everyone! – [Nina] The traditional interpretation here is that this is the fault of the Americans for not following the guidelines, those principles are flawless and it is only the fault of the Americans. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] But
government consumption data confirms that Americans followed the principles and reduced the natural fats found in red meat , whole milk, eggs, animal fats, and butter.

And they're still gaining weight. One of the comparisons I like to use is to imagine that you have a baseball team that has lost every game they've played in the past 50 or 60 years. – [Sports announcer] Hit three, hit three! – Then it will occur to you that these players are playing the wrong way. They are losers! But at some point you will have to admit that the fault may be in their training strategy. This cannot be the fault of
these players for decades. But it is precisely our interpretation of the
increase in obesity and disease in Americans that it is their fault. They do not follow the principles correctly. I think the
dietary guidelines have failed miserably. The important question here is whether we should change it or cancel it and start over. I think people are now sticking with the saturated fat myth, ashamed to admit their mistake. – I don't think the government will admit its misunderstanding of the saturated fat issue. – Are we still going to all this trouble because some public health workers want to preserve
their reputation, so they don't become a laughingstock! I dreamed that the American Heart Association would issue
a press release, saying, “Well, we know that for nearly 60 years we have given you wrong advice and we apologize if we caused you to lose a loved one prematurely and we are sorry if we caused you heart disease for following that wrong advice.

We thought then that it was true, we intended no evil, and now we realize our error.” They didn't make an apology, and it
doesn't look like that's going to happen. And the biggest health organizations dedicated to preventing obesity and
type 2 diabetes have been posting advice that only makes matters worse. We have always thought that
type 2 diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease with no cure.

This is a misconception, which I categorically reject. It is chronic and progressive only if you follow current guidelines as a treatment plan. – [Dr. Mark Hayman]
For years, the American Diabetes Association has recommended low-fat diets. They use this infographic known as the Diabetes Diet, which features limited amounts of lean meat and
fat-free dairy, and 50% or more of your daily calories
are carbohydrates.

– I think that diet is a prescription for an exacerbation of the disease. If you look closely, you will notice that three-quarters of them
are carbohydrates, and this does not make sense. Just as the protein in it is fat-free, so the diabetes diet, on the whole , contains almost no fat. Alyssa Gallagher –
Certified Dietitian and Diabetes Mentor. It is a way to increase obesity and disease. I was recommending that tip, then found out it was harmful. It increases drug consumption, and increases insulin levels. Burning fat instead of burning sugar is a major metabolic shift. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] Alyssa Gallagher
is Judy's nutritionist. She was initially trained
to prescribe a low-fat diet.

When I started exploring
the low carb diet– [JODI] Is that low carb? I can use it. I felt like for the first time in my career I really helped people. I'm going to start eating real food today, so I'm going to get rid of it all. I
've been frustrated in the past with this system. I would recommend people to eat what hurts them. Oh, chips and
crackers, where's that trash can? I've been following the American Diabetes Association's approach of
eating carbs regularly and increasing whole grain intake. Oatmeal is not suitable. They used to tell us it was good for us. We are used to hearing that saturated fats are bad for us. It is something that should be avoided and its use reduced at all costs. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The problem is that
when you eliminate fat from a diet, you have to replace it with something else. And that other thing is often carbohydrates. At first, I didn't understand why that system was useless. This is what I studied. I am a nutritionist. Did I study the wrong system? Then I realized it didn't make sense to me.

Why would I recommend someone with diabetes should eat carbohydrates? unbelievable. Carbohydrates raise blood sugar, basically the patient has high blood sugar, then we need to give you more medication. Medicines will increase your weight. You need more medication, and you want to eat more carbohydrates. Then we get into a vicious circle. Well, I guess I've finished cleaning up my pantry. Insulin resistance is basically a state of carbohydrate intolerance. So why do we keep recommending patients to take it? – [Dr. Mark Heymann]
Sarah Hallberg is a pioneering physician who conducted the most promising trial in patients with type 2 diabetes.

I have helped hundreds of
patients permanently and safely reverse their diabetes diagnosis, often eliminating all medication by reducing carbohydrates and
increasing fat intake by 70-80% of
daily calories. – The treatment of the diabetes epidemic in my clinic is quite straightforward. Stop using medication
to treat nutritional errors. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Her
TED Talk about this unconventional approach has nearly 5 million views. Title: "Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Begins with Ignoring Guidelines." Fat is an essential component of any scientific diet given to any patient with type 2 diabetes.

Carbohydrates cause the level of
insulin and glucose in the blood to rise. While the effect of proteins
is much less, as for fats, they have no effect on
glucose or insulin. Bearing in mind that
type 2 diabetes is caused by high glucose. one moment please! This means that we can't
give the macronutrients because it will lead to a spike in
glucose and insulin. That's exactly what they do in the
Diabetes Diet Guidelines.

They recommend that we eat the macronutrients that are the basis of disease. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Here is a
clinical trial of nearly 500 patients, 60% of whom have reversed their diabetes diagnosis. That is, more than half of the patients returned their blood sugar to its normal rate. 94% of them decreased their insulin doses or eliminated them completely without an increase in LDL
or LDL cholesterol. By comparison, the American Diabetes Association's success rate in reversing diabetes was less than 1% when patients followed their low-fat regimens. So if we want to help patients, we have to start giving them
systems that actually work for them. It's hard to change something that has been going on for decades. It is difficult to change that system. But the first step here is to be frank, and to admit our mistake.

This includes many organizations and individuals admitting that they were wrong. I think this is difficult and important. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] After years of fruitlessly following the guidelines, Jodi decided to ignore them and tried to reverse her type 2 diabetes by following a low-
carb, high-fat diet. Over the years, health experts have been giving us those tips that have gotten us into a vicious circle. I like unsweetened coconut chips. – [JODY] I feel like what I'm learning now is the right path to health and shedding too much weight.

The US military
now faces a new threat. That's not North Korea, it's actually the American diet. The biggest factor of exclusion from the military is obesity. – [woman's voice] You certainly
don't talk about youth! – [Man] I mean obesity in youth. – [Newscaster]
25% of all potential recruits are disqualified because of their weight. – "At this time, we cannot form an army, because we cannot fight because of obesity." These are not my words, these are the words of the US Army. A few months ago, the military failed to
reach the required number of recruits for the first time in 13 years. 71% of young Americans
between the ages of 17 and 24 are
ineligible to serve in the military. We've reached a point where we can't
protect ourselves because of obesity.

"The US military's obesity problem is
getting worse." – [Dr. Mark Hyman] Capt. Brian Judd is an Apache helicopter pilot, entrepreneur and a living example of the importance of rethinking American dietary guidelines. – [Brian J.] Driving an Apache helicopter may be
one of the most fun things on the planet, but it also has a lot of risks. You need to use all
your skills to stay safe. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] On Highly Perilous Missions, On the Other Side of the World, Brian was assigned to Army Food, a diet that followed
the Dietary Guidelines. – I always had sandwiches for lunch, lots of pasta dishes, and rice dishes. I ran about three or
four times a week, between three and five miles, and even so, I was gaining weight. One day I was in the
cockpit and I put my head down and it felt like the world was spinning, like an airplane was spinning.

I quickly raised my head, then lowered it, and the dizziness returned. Then I raised my hand and said, "I feel like I have a problem." – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Brian
knew he was sick but didn't know why. He was banned from flying. During the next eight months
, I visited every specialist in the field. – They asked him questions such as:
Do you have a brain tumor? Is it something in the inner ear? Is there a heart problem? Is there a neurological problem? Then they said, "You know,
Brian, sometimes stress leads to weird symptoms in the body," and they gave me a mental health card. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Not a single specialist has asked about Brian's diet.

– Then they said, "I'm sorry. That's all we can do for you." And then we decided to solve that problem ourselves. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Brian decided to
try an elimination diet, and stop eating all grains and sugar. These gigs
of bone broth, vegetables, and meat broth are made and eaten so much every day for flavor and quality. Hence the nickname Captain Soup. Within six weeks, I had regained my focus and energy, and had lost about 25 pounds. My husband is back. The father of my children is back as before. Really amazing what food does to us. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Once he changed what he ate, Brian's health issues were resolved. He stopped taking any medication , returned to his high school weight, and the Army sent him back to his flying job. He is now sharing his recipe
for health with the world. – [Brian J.] We now make
ultra-pure keto soups, and ship them frozen nationwide.

– [Dr. Mark Hyman] When Brian goes to work, he carries soup bags with him. He was no longer dependent on
army food that made him ill. – I was sick when my son was born, when I look at those pictures, I don't remember anything about that year I was out of focus. Sorry! But when you lose your energy, you lose your health, and then you can't do anything. I got my mind back, I got my energy back, and I can give my children and my wife what they need. Less than 20% of medical schools today require nutritional training for physicians. This is slowly changing, but a significant lack of nutritional knowledge means that
many clinicians misunderstand the root causes of
chronic and metabolic diseases that often have
their origin in diet. When doctors start
recommending a fat- reducing, calorie-reducing regimen themselves, it won't be long before they realize that it's
inappropriate, and then they'll wonder, "Maybe it's not appropriate to prescribe it to patients." – to me!
– Welcome.

– How are you today? – Fine. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Doctors
are not immune to obesity. Many of them suffer from health challenges. – You've improved a lot. Two years ago, I tried the American Diabetes Association and American Heart Association diet of eating a low-fat diet in the form of small meals throughout the day, and I kept gaining weight. – [Coach] Up, two, up, three! I used to exercise six days a week because I thought I had to train to lose weight, I want to be an example to my patients. But the problem was with my diet. Then it failed miserably. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Like
many cases, Brian Lenzkes has followed the low-fat model and has practiced it with his patients for decades. But his struggle with his weight got out of hand. – I weighed 260 lbs. At the time, I was on the cusp of pre-diabetes. It seemed to me that I was taking the wrong approach. I was following government guidelines which made me get sick and get worse. As long as I take the wrong approach; Was my patients not listening to me or was I giving them bad advice? And it turns out I was giving them bad advice.

– I've got chicken mix, my dear, and Italian sausage, and spicy ham. – When I stopped eating
carbs, I noticed that if I ate eggs for
breakfast for example, I wouldn't eat my
10 o'clock snack, which is amazing! I wasn't hungry so I don't need it. – I like the grease on my fingers. – It tastes great. During the first six months I lost about 28 or 30 pounds. I gained muscle mass and
felt great. My energy, mental clarity, and focus improved, and my fatigue levels decreased. I was surprised. this is interesting. How many of you have lost 10 pounds or more on low
carb or keto diets? – He became a great role model for a low-
carb lifestyle because he tried it himself and then tried it with hundreds of his patients.

– Hello, how are you? – good thanks. – [Brian L.] Nice to see you – [Mary] Thank you. – How are you? Throughout my career, I have not seen anyone cure their diabetes by following
a low-fat diet. Absolutely. None of them stopped taking their insulin injections. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Since Brian went on a low-carb keto diet, nearly a dozen of his patients have reversed type 2
diabetes and eliminated insulin altogether. – When following up on your health, I noticed that you are closer to stopping taking insulin faster than anyone else.

I feel like I've been born again. So I will stick to that diet. Within three months, I went from taking insulin five times a day to not using it at all, yet my blood sugar remained normal. – I don't remember if Dr. Lenzex suggested keto specifically for my weight loss or if it was something
else that I had. I started keto. I love butter, cream, and bacon, so that's fun for me. I eat less and enjoy what I eat more. Since last March, a year ago, I 've lost between 50 and 60 pounds, and gained a lot of strength, as well as muscle. – and I lost over 200 lbs. – That's confusing! Throughout his career, he has not managed to get any patients off insulin and in just five months, he has managed to get 11 patients
off insulin completely.

This is undeniable! – "We've made amazing progress. I mean, just two years ago you were on insulin five
times a day, huge doses, and you asked me, can I just
get off that insulin? I 've gained weight, I'm tired, I'm
tired all the time. Now you see what you've done is really cool. .just by making some
lifestyle changes." Patients are now able to get rid of insulin. It became a reality. My patients now tell their sick friends when they ask, "How did this person stop taking insulin? I thought this was impossible.

Is it possible?" Of course! We are excited about that. I don't know anyone who has lost as much weight as I have, even in gastric bypass surgery
, I've never seen that. You've now taken off all your diabetes medications , and your blood pressure has gone down. All of these things are getting better and you are slowly getting off the medication. You've made more progress than anyone I've seen. The transformation in his patients, whereby they were able to
virtually get off their medication and at the same time improve their health, was astonishing. And it all started with his personal experience. – [Kate] Maybe the government will eventually change its approach. – Maybe. Even if it doesn't, you'll take care of your health, right? – Without a doubt.
We can do it ourselves and when people see results they will follow that same lifestyle. It was a very exciting experience. – Yes. – Fine, thank you.
– Thank you very much. – Thank you for the encouragement! – Pardons! You are really amazing, if not the best.

– I thank you. – To continue, there are three main nutrients, which are carbohydrates, protein and fats, and this point brings us to an important conversation. There are essential fats and essential proteins, but no essential carbohydrates. And by "essential" we mean any food element that is necessary to maintain human life. That is, we eat to stay alive. While it is not physically or biologically necessary to consume any carbohydrates at all. – Doug was a super distance runner. I'm not a pro, I was good and got 100th out of 15,000 riders. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] When
he was 30, Doug Reynolds participated in nearly 100 long-distance marathons and ultramarathons.

His body was in the best shape, but there was something abnormal. – I thought I'd be fit, and with that certainty, on race day, I stood thinking "I've got to go up the mountain 55 miles . I'm not going to make the corner!" I had a terrible feeling. I thought it was all nerves. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Like a
lot of other athletes, Doug ate too much carbs
days before the race.

– I found out it wasn't nerves. And the truth is that three days before the race, I ate a lot of pasta and potatoes, all of those carbs are toxic . [Dr. Mark Heymann] It's a famous story by
Dr. Tim Noakes, author of the book On Carbohydrate Eating The first four chapters are all about high carbohydrate diets and he explained that one of the most important factors for your running success is how much carbohydrate you eat. I got fatter, my health deteriorated, and I stumbled over and over again to the point that I really hated running.

– [Dr. Mark Heimann] Although
they exercised more than most people, both men went on a diet low in
fat and high in carbohydrates. – I began to gain weight. A little bit and I wasn't used to n weight When I was a runner, I was at an ideal weight. I bought a scale and found that my weight increased approximately 35 lbs. I thought the scale was off. – And what's also amazing, I found out I had type 2 diabetes, I expected this because my dad passed away after suffering from it for 10 years , so I have 10 years to solve the problem! Tim and Doug decided to break their usual patterns and go on a low-carb diet. They consume less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day and eat moderate amounts of protein, with an average of 70 to 80% fat per day. Very simple diet. Your body needs protein first. It is very necessary. Then you can choose to energize your body with carbohydrates, sugars, starches, or fats, it's up to you.

If you cut out carbs,
sugars and starches, your body is forced to use an alternative,
only finding fat. Burning fat produces a substance called ketones that provides all the energy you need to fuel your body and mind. That's why the
low-carb, high-fat diet is known as the 'keto'. For most, they follow a diet based on very little sugar or starch. In other words, if life were one year, we would eat cereal or bread only on the last day, and eat sugars only in the last hour. We know that getting ketosis and keeping carbs low will be the preferred method for people. Eventually, I dropped 44 pounds back to my normal weight when rowing in 1972. I am happy to say seven years later, I'm in control of my blood glucose level as expected for a 69-year-old.

I'm not completely normal, but it's 99% natural. – [Dr. Mark Heimann] Tim rips those carb pages out of
his book "Lore of Running" and urges athletes to
ketogenic diets. – [Doug] After two or
three weeks of keto I've been waking up excited for my morning run and enjoying it. An amazing transformation in my life. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Doug created a
company "Locarp USA" dedicated to advocacy and education in the field of nutrition.

Her motto? Inverted food pyramid. – The whole idea was caused by this terrible metabolic dilemma due to our shifting food pyramid. We're trying to fix it now that the food pyramid has been turned upside down. – Now we understand the nature of our bodies, even the bodies of sports professionals, do not eat carbohydrates to survive. We can turn fats into ketones, but early dieticians didn't understand ketogenic nutrition. Scientists simply think that fat represents nine calories per gram
while protein and carbohydrates only four calories per gram, and therefore we must reduce fat to reduce calories and thus lose weight. – I met people who took the initiative to spread these guidelines, and their actions had good intentions. They knew that calories lead to obesity, so we cut back on
high-calorie foods, which are fats.

We've been counting calories since then in every way imaginable: on food packaging, on menus, on the
Internet, in apps, and most recently even on our bodies. Although we said years ago
that "the equation is simple". If we can balance the calories, the calories we take in and we burn , we get in all and the ones in all, our weight will stay in balance. All are at their right level, right? Realistically, this is not true. The calories we get and burn represent a fundamental defect in the human body, as the body does not depend on fat in this way.

We don't get fat like that. – It's not a physical problem. It's a biological problem. Physiological. The alternative theory is known as the "carbohydrate
-insulin and weight gain hypothesis". Explain how carbohydrates raise blood sugar but not fats? This is the key to the insulin-carbohydrate hypothesis. – It's simple. If you take 100 calories of brownies and 100 calories of salmon, the whole insulin hypothesis says that one food will raise insulin in the blood, and the other will not. We know that just by putting these foods in your mouth, we know their hormonal effect is quite different from some of them. We should pay attention to hormones at least as much as, if not more, calories. So what raises insulin? Carbohydrates are number one, without a doubt. It's the same as the location for the drug, so is the carbohydrate for the insulin. Protein is the second place, protein can raise insulin. What Never Raise Insulin? Fats. Do not move the level of insulin in the blood completely. Is it really ironic that you tell people a zero-nutrient diet has no effect on FSH? Sheer madness.

Insulin acts as a lock on all of our fat stores and thus prevents us from using our stored fats as energy. But when we reduce carbohydrates we can lower our insulin levels, and then we unlock the locks and access all of our fat stores for energy. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Insulin
is a fat-storing hormone. To reduce insulin by
limiting sugar and carbohydrates, then the fat will either be melted or not gained at all. We tell patients to think of your body as a bowl of sugar… Over time, the bowl fills up. If you eat a lot of processed foods , sugar and so on, that bowl gets filled up, and eventually all that sugar is type 2 diabetes. Your cells can't handle any more sugar, so it simply goes into the blood.

The mistake you're making here is taking insulin and putting more and more sugar into the body, the body absorbs it until it can't handle it and you rot. It's simply like saying, "Yes, I have a lot of sugar. " To burn it off with intermittent fasting, "or limiting sugars." I followed a low
carb diet, and guessed? I found the result exactly as I expected. I have been promoting the keto diet for about 13 years at the University Clinical Care Center and its results in the treatment of diabetes are absolutely amazing. Some people stop taking insulin in a few days after cutting back on carbohydrates, unlike before. I can remember someone who managed to get them to stop taking 180 units of insulin a day in just 2 days. – [Alisa] Come and take a seat. – [JODI] Of course. – If Judy came into my office 10 years ago when I started, I would have said to her, “I can help you.

” You just have to eat less. “You need to exercise. ” We need to think about what we are going to eat. "You can do it, I trust you." This is true. Why don't you measure your blood sugar so I can see it too. – [Judy] "Okay. – Take a look at this. Over the next five years, I realized it didn't work and either no one had taken my advice or it was wrong. – I was writing every day– – Thank God Judy hasn't visited me since 10 years.She visited me in my office this year.And I was able to make her full of hope.I was able to present a real opportunity.I knew it could work.The success was not about weight, it was about lowering blood sugar, reducing insulin and anti-inflammatories, and making blood pressure and insulin At a normal level. – [Alyssa] It sure is a great effort. – Yes.
– You weigh 12 lbs. – Great.
– Since the last interview. – This is the second week and I see my blood sugar is normal in the morning I'm still taking the injections.

But I got it under control. Now I'm in ketosis, and the weight is starting to drop. – What dose have you been on since we last met? – 120 units . – Well , now 100. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] In
two weeks From following the keto diet, her blood sugar dropped and
Judy lost 12 lbs. Changing her diet improved her health,
which the drug couldn't . fat, thus stimulating the body with more energy. – just awesome. Happy to collaborate again, and at one point I thought about quitting the job. “How can it work! ” It is hopeless. "Hopeless diabetes." This was how I felt at the time. Despair crept into my heart, and I thought that there must be another way, and hope began to fill my heart. In the results of over 50 clinical trials comparing high/
low fat diets for weight loss,
high fat diets outperformed each time. The more fat, the greater the weight loss.

That's because fats speed up your metabolism and help you burn body fat, and carbohydrates slow your
metabolism and therefore weight gain. It's the second week of
trying the diets. This time we will adopt a low-fat diet. – Breakfast today is oats with raisins and brown sugar. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] USDA Certified My Plate A list of 200-calorie-a-day meals downloaded from
the USDA website. – Do you have a smaller ham? – [Dr. Mark Hayman encourages low-fat meats and
fat-free dairy, including
fat-free sugar-sweetened chocolate milk and plenty of carbs found in foods like lasagna, bread and pizza. Sounds like the stuff you used to take to your dorm, right? – [Dr.

Mark Heimann] This is what our government did to get it done. – We've got some buckwheat here. Half a cup of banana slices, and half a cup of skim milk. Then the bread. And a cup of fat-free chocolate milk. – [Dr. Mark Heimann] This
breakfast has 150 grams of carbs and 50 grams of sugar. – [Cynthia] Two teaspoons of jam. Instead of eating
bacon and eggs in the morning, those foods that keep you
full even after lunch, you're now eating two slices of bread and jam. And of course by the time of digestion, the sugar will go up and then down, 10:30 you'll be looking for a low-fat pancake.

– The first day of
the new diet has begun, I must admit that I do not like it. I feel hungry all day. Instead of eating three meals a day, the norm from the 1950s,
1960s, and 1970s, now, at 10:30, people are hungry, "need to eat six times a day." – I was hungry today and needed a snack, and felt sick after the meal.

You don't just eat insulin-stimulating foods, you do it constantly! Six times a day instead of three. And you don't know what's up! Lunch is a
pork sandwich with mayonnaise, grapes and milk. Derailed, crossed 200. And it kept increasing gradually until it got above 200, it reached 206. Then it started going down. That was crazy and a little scary. It's a great recipe for diabetes.

How long do you have to get diabetes, that's the result of advice! – I haven't implemented it for the past week. It's going to be a fun week, I hope to continue all week! This is Cynthia, day five
of the low-fat diet. It's barely 12 o'clock, and I'm
hungry, so I'll get my lunch. I'm hungry again so
I'll enjoy a snack. Last week, I
got hungry at two, and now I'm really hungry so I'm going to eat. – I was hungry the whole time. I was preparing my meal and feeling full for 30, 40 minutes, and then I started feeling hungry. – [Cynthia] I absolutely loved it last week –[Dr. Mark Heymann] When you
compare flat and regular sugar levels after eating fat for one week and those after eating less fat for another week, it's hard to believe our government thinks this helps. The
USDA set guidelines that seem to me to be just an idea for marketing American-made food. It was not dependent on health. These dietary guidelines are not made for health. These directives are only guidelines to promote foodstuffs so that America can sell the food.

They have nothing to do with health. And the fact that the USDA is
responsible for our health is already a problem. The USDA was established and is responsible for two missions. The first is to provide information to the American people about healthy eating. The second is to support and encourage American industries based on agriculture. And these two tasks don't always coincide, because if they were really honest with the American people, they would say that "wheat, corn, sugar, and
soybeans are not healthy foods." And if you were a supporter of the USDA, and a believer in the mission to support, encourage and grow American agriculture, you wouldn't tell people not to eat four of America's five biggest crops. That's a contradiction, which is why I don't think you'll see a major change in dietary guidelines. So, Nick, tell me about your experiences over the past two weeks. – It was really fun. – It was fun. – Really fun. My experience with the low carb high fat diet was really good. I loved all the food, and found it easy.

I liked high fat foods because I felt more energetic. – The next week with low-fat,
high-carb meals, I was tired. I felt hungry. Insulin is the main driver of carbohydrate cravings and hunger. The feeling of hunger you mentioned when insulin levels are high and blood sugar is low. That's the insulin game we talked about, you eat carbs, your insulin goes up. – And I felt sick with the high carbs. – I was a little groggy. – Even I was saying things in reverse, I wasn't normal, I didn't act as usual. – I would like to see your rates.

– Good.
– To see the progress. did you see them? – Of course. Let me see them. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] Consider the difference between the two diets. Each participant experienced similar reactions to the low-
carb and low-fat diets. – A clear difference! between the two weeks. A huge difference. The first week was almost flat. – Yes.
– I was 84. – [Michelle] More stable. – [Nick Brown] She was great. – Yes, fun.
– It was really interesting to be involved in something like this. – I'm really excited to change my life. – It's great to see an improvement– – For a lot of people,
fats are perfect foods. Not only does it make you feel full and lose weight, your body uses it as a building block for building cell membranes, fat forms the myelin sheath around your nerves and allows electrical impulses to react and transmit quickly and efficiently.

Fat makes up more than half of brain tissue. Breast milk accounts for more than half of the fat, most of which is saturated fat. We need healthy fats to be healthy. Unfortunately, what we were told about healthy and harmful fats was a huge mistake. Everyone thinks that fat is dangerous. "Don't eat fat, don't eat fat." It's actually more tragic than that. The story is much worse. It was said to stay away from saturated fats, such as butter and animal fats, and eat ghee. ♪ I'm the Cake Man ♪ ♪ I'm the Butter Man ♪ – [TV host] Imperial. The only taste worthy of the crown. – That's so tragic, it was killer advice. Many doctors have recommended corn oil to lower saturated fats for a low-fat diet. Ghee are vegetable oils, they partially hydrogenate them to make them solid to look like butter. Partially hydrogenated fats are trans fats. It is best to replace foods
rich in saturated fats. So we went from eating
natural foods and butter to eating the trans fats we now know are a major cause of heart attacks. For the family you love, serve up the new Mazola Margarine.

They will love its light flavor. Crazy, we told people to stop eating butter and eat this poison and it would work, and we all did. Mazola is 100% corn oil made from 100% corn oil. There is really no doubt that the American Heart Association's accreditation of vegetable oils has been a
great thing to support the industry. – [Ralph] This is Ralph Edwards
from Truth or Consequences. Congratulations on the special statement for our support of the American Heart Association. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
American Heart Association started in the 1920s as a small organization that could barely keep its doors open. In 1948, Crisco or Shortening Company, Procter & Gamble , ran a local fundraiser, and the American Heart Association won the
top prize. – [Ralph] Thank you Jack Penny, the American Heart Association won a million and a half dollars. Ralph Edwards wishes you a good night! Overnight,
millions of dollars poured into their coffers.

From week to week they started opening branches all over the country, all thanks to Procter and Gamble. – [TV Anchor] Crisco oil stays
blended longer, makes salad taste delicious. Crisco Oil mixes
better than other oils. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
American Heart Association has since supported special oils. I don't think it's good to deceive Mother Nature. – They managed to post ads like, “To lower your cholesterol, take it to your doctor ” and have him prescribe it for you, “Vegetable oils for your health.” – Vegetable oils are great, they are now classified as heart-boosting, which drives me a little crazy because this is their feature, they lower cholesterol! But the most important question, what do those oils do? They are not natural food products. It's manufactured products. Products that require heat, chemicals and high pressure to extract less oil. The heat and chemicals used in the manufacturing process lead to the oxidation of these oils. When you eat oxidizing oils like soy, canola, corn, safflower or sunflower, they create free radicals throughout the body that are high risk and known to cause heart disease and cancer.

Why not try taking antioxidants to combat those free radicals found in refined vegetable oils. And then restaurants use them in the most carcinogenic way. They heat it up, reheat it, cool it down, heat it up again, and use it for a week. So switching to
vegetable or seed oils was an undoubtedly terrifying idea. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] A
researcher from the University of Minnesota went to a variety of fast-food restaurants in her neighborhood, bought french fries, and took them to her lab for testing. Many toxic aldehydes are found in it.

Aldehydes are known to cause genetic mutation, alter RNA and DNA, and cause severe inflammation in the body. Vegetable oils are highly toxic, and anyone who advises people to eat them is providing misleading information. I tell my clients to avoid synthetic seed oils as much as possible. – [Dr. Mark Heimann] Vegetable oils
are good for a car engine, not your food! Avoid refined vegetable oils found in fast food and processed foods. If it comes packaged in a bottle or box, it may contain vegetable oils. Such as biscuits, mayonnaise, salad dressing, baby food and even milk. Not a natural food item. It has been proven to cause inflammation, and in the University of Minnesota coronary artery study, and the Sydney Heart Diet study, it was shown that it lowers cholesterol.

In fact, they only raise the death rate. ♪ Minneapolis, you mean a lot to me ♪ – The Minnesota Coronary Study , done in the 1960s, was the biggest test of the Ansel Keys hypothesis. – The Minnesota Coronary Study is a wonderful study from a scientific and a research point of view. It was done in 5
mental hospitals in Minnesota, and it's the kind of experiment that you can't do now that some consider unethical. But then, there was the control diet, you can feed people what you like so you know what they're eating, and they can't refuse.

Replace saturated fats with unsaturated fats in the diet . And the diet was similar for all the other nutrients
they considered important. And what they found was that with this interaction, the cholesterol level fell, which is expected, and the death rate increased. It turns out that people who were on a cholesterol-lowering diet had more heart disease and death than people who followed a control diet, which is exactly the opposite of what they wanted. It does not support the heart diet hypothesis. – But they never published the results. – If you do a very long study, thinking that you know its results, and you know its end, and then you fail to achieve it, I understand your feeling of refusing to publish the results, but it is a scientific fraud. – This is totally unacceptable, for not publishing your data. – It wasn't published until decades later, when a relative of the researcher went, to look for those results, and began to explore and search for them , everywhere, to find and reprocess them, then analyze and publish them to say, "This system contains
omega-6 oils and lowers cholesterol, But it does increase the risk of
cardiovascular disease and “increases the incidence of death.” – When you make recommendations, that are not based on any evidence, and evidence that contradicts those recommendations, wait! There is a problem then! What is the usual approach to dealing with this situation, What's been repeated so much ? Burying the new evidence! That's exactly what happened, and the Minnesota Coronary Study is a good example of that.

– The Heart Foundation didn't come out and say, “Sorry, we're wrong.” They just shrugged it off as if it didn't happen and kept promoting. of vegetable oils and polyunsaturated fats If that were published, our food today would undoubtedly be different . Reason to be angry , not to worry Controlled clinical trials such as the Minnesota “coronary” trial are the gold standard of research. You can control it with every bite of the food and change any ingredient, such as swapping butter for ghee, To know its effect on our health. Such experiments are very expensive, and some consider them unethical. The
least expensive observational experiments are the most common. – [Interviewer] How many times have you eaten oats, over the past year? – I have no idea. – I don't really remember! – [Dr.

Mark Heymann]
Observational experiments often rely on food questionnaires based on how well people remember. It wasn't great. – [Interviewer] How many times have you drunk orange juice over the past year? – I don't know how many times. – last year? – For example… – Maybe more than 20 times. – [Axles] Last year 20 times? – Yes. – [Interviewer] So, twice a month? – Yes. – I have no idea. – If we count it, wait– -Maybe the same as you. I don't know how many ounces. – Do you understand what I mean? Observational trials produce
unreliable data which is why dietary recommendations are constantly changing and failing. Setting food policy based on unreliable data is what got us into this mess.

– [Interviewer] How hard is it to remember what you ate? Impossible, unless you have a superhuman ability to remember everything, nobody is like that. Nobody remembers things accurately. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] No
one could represent an inconsistency in a low-fat diet better than Dave Asprey. His company, Bulletproof, popularized a morning habit of adding fat to coffee. – [Dave] Take a teaspoon or a tablespoon of butter. – [Tag] Add to your coffee tablespoons of purified coconut oil. Then add your coffee, and mix those ingredients. It looks like a latte. It fills you up for hours on end, and you feel full of awesome energy that you won't find in a piece of toast. – [Dr. Mark Heymann]
By discovering a high-fat, low-carb diet, Dave Asprey lost over 100 pounds, and stayed that way for 10 years. – In 2004, after
losing as much weight as I wanted, I decided to go to Tibet, to learn and practice meditation from his teachers. And while I was up 18,000 feet in a very remote part of Tibet, minus 10, winds of
30 mph, it was really tough, because there's no air and it's cold.

A young Tibetan woman gave me a bowl of yak butter tea, which was made of yak butter, mixed with the tea and a pinch of salt. Well, I'm hungry, and I drank it. It didn't taste great, and it didn't taste bad. But after a minute, I felt really great. “Actually, I haven’t felt like this in days. “What’s going on?” And I wrote a little note in my journal, “How is that possible?” And that day, I had another 20 cups of them, and I felt like I had my life back. — [Dr. Mark Heymann]
Dave has returned to the US and has adapted the experience
of yak butter tea with coffee.

"Bulletproof" is now a
multi-million dollar company that Dave runs
along with a small organic farm where he raises
grass-fed sheep and pigs.- Hey guys, hi Riley. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Dave believes that the quality of the fat you consume is extremely important. – If you're not sure if a fat is good or bad, that's okay. Because some fats are bad and some are good. No wonder it's confusing. In short, animal butter.
They feed on grasses, egg yolks, coconut oil, avocado and olive oil, these are the good fats.” – [Dr.

Mark Heimann] While
there is much debate about the role animal production plays in climate change, raising
grass-fed animals on pastures Organic is like Dave's pasture which helps capture carbon
and could be a sustainable part of the climate solution . The meat you eat
should be of higher quality. Guess what high quality animals are made of? High quality droppings. Guess what high quality litter is made of? High quality vegetables. The vegetables you eat that don't come from farms that are cared for in this way are devoid of nutrients, and if we allow that to continue,
there will be no topsoil left. This is
how topsoil is formed. Tibetans discovered that long ago, saturated fats help your brain. They were using it to meditate, they were using it to help
the metabolism process in very harsh conditions that are very stressful. So it's time to get rid of the seed oils. They are unfit for human consumption.

If you eat bad fats, they will kill you. This is where the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association erred. They told you to eat bad fats because of industrial interests, and it's time to change that. The science is very, very clear. How much weight did you lose in total? – 30 lbs. – that is great.
– Yes. And my goal was 50, so I think
it can be achieved. – [Alyssa] And I lost another five pounds. – me?
– Yes Yes. – Hurry up! – [Dr. Mark Hayman] In
two months, Jodi lost weight and cut her insulin medication by 60%. I think you have to look inside yourself and realize that no one will take care of you the
way you can. I don't think anyone can go wrong trying to do that, but you can't try for a week. You have to keep it in mind and stick to it for a while. – [Dr. Mark Heimann]
Judy was inspired by thousands of other patients who have reversed
their type 2 diabetes and eliminated all medication with a high-fat,
low-carb nutrition plan. We reversed
my severe type 2 diabetes after one month. I'm so proud of that.

No more insulin injections, no more metformin, even
stats. I completely reversed
my type 2 diabetes in just three months. Before I changed my diet
, I weighed 212 pounds. Now I weigh 165 pounds, and I'm not taking any medications. Before I started, I weighed about 265 lbs. I now weigh 130 lbs. Now I can have fun with my family, I can do whatever I have to do to live my life. It was a complete change. – I've seen so many patients whose lives have changed, what an honor to share that journey with a patient. – I think that if a person has the determination and sets his goals, nothing will stop him.

You just have to decide that being satisfied and being healthy are more important than the things you used to like to eat. It won't be
long before your taste buds change and you like it. When I first started exploring low-
carb foods, I tried to keep it quiet because it was, and probably still is, a very controversial topic. In other countries, nutritionists were losing their license to practice
low-carb diets, not to mention doctors too. Professor Knox, accused of
unprofessional behaviour, the majority of this committee finds you not guilty. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] The
low-carb debate may be slowly and quietly changing. In the long-running case of Dr. Tim
Noakes, the final verdict was in his favour. – And what matters to us, is that we made it clear that this diet is safe. That's all we really set out to do.

A low-carb ketogenic diet is a low-
carb diet. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] More
and more medical practitioners are against dietary guidelines to help their patients achieve better health. Like Brian Linczyk who also teaches low carb nutrition classes
at his church. So far, Brian's group has lost over 2,000 lbs. – Our results are in purple here. Low in carbohydrates. – [Dr. Mark Heymann] Results from the two-year Sarah Hallberg clinical trial show that a low-
carb, high- fat diet is just as effective as bariatric surgery in reversing type 2 diabetes. So how do you rate the saturated fat distortion after you did this experiment? Well, I'll tell you, what we're saying is that we don't limit
saturated fats to these patients, and yet they get these great results.

– [Dr. Mark Hayman] In April of 2019, the American Diabetes Association released an update on its
long-held position that diets with less than 130 grams of
carbohydrates per day are unsafe. – I was so thrilled, it felt
like Christmas morning. It was the first time a huge organization had written that what I was doing was good. What I was doing was an approach that helps my patients. And while it was something I had known for years, this was the first time I
had ever felt safe. This was the first time
I felt safe to make these recommendations. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] In
2015 after more than 50 years of condemning foods like
eggs, lobsters and shrimp, the American Heart Association quietly dropped their long-standing opposition recommendations for dietary cholesterol, saying it was no longer a
nutrient of concern.

That same year, the
US Dietary Guidelines Committee removed the upper limit on
dietary fat intake, recognizing that there was no evidence that fat intake was harmful to health. But the maximum amount of
saturated fat remains. The hypothesis that
saturated fats are harmful to health has been the most tested hypothesis in the history of dietetics. No hypothesis has been tested more than it. About 75,000 people, 65,000, about that, depending on which studies you include, none of them could show
that those saturated fats had any effect on overall mortality or cardiovascular disease. There is no evidence for this. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] However,
the American Heart Association, which takes much of its funding from Big Food and Big Pharma, still stands behind its long-
standing position that saturated fats are the cause of heart disease and that refined vegetable oils are good for the heart.

– But it's a lot to do with politics and money, and Big Pharma and the sugar industry behind it are trying to keep
those guidelines as they are now. I think they will eventually change, but when? Maybe 50 years later. We can't wait 50 years. Millions of people have
already died because of this chaos. – [Dr. Mark Hyman] Doug
Reynolds won't wait anymore. His company, LowCarbUSA, partnered with dozens of physicians,
nutritionists, and dietitians to create a set of
global clinical guidelines that teach medical professionals how to
safely and effectively practice low-carb nutrition. It may give many of them the confidence to start using it in their practice, where they were previously not
quite sure how to do it or were afraid that
other doctors weren't doing it. Now, they're following a set of guidelines. – [Dr. Mark Hayman] What about the Official Dietary Guidelines for
Americans? The three major eating patterns recommended by the
USDA all state more than 50% of your
daily calories as carbohydrates. According to the Dietary Guidelines, diets low in carbohydrates and fats are still not considered.

– It smells very good. In 2017, the
National Academy of Sciences and Medicine conducted the first-ever external scientific review of US Dietary Guidelines and
found that the process lacked transparency and scientific rigor. Recommending one food pattern to an entire people was a huge mistake. The low-fat diet didn't work, it hurt us and led to an increase in obesity and disease. The lesson of the low-
fat diet may be that the science of nutrition is probably deeply flawed and
the nutritional guidelines of our country have been heavily influenced by the food industry and the huge amount of money is at stake.

What we are experiencing now is absolutely unsustainable, these unsustainable rates
of obesity and diabetes. We're bankrupting our nation, it's destroying people's lives, it's destroying our country, and we must stop it. We do not cure the disease, we treat the symptoms of the disease. And so it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that we're not getting better.

And we won't get better until we realize what the real problem is. If we change the food,
we can solve this problem. – [Tracy] We get a lot of
contradictory information about diet. Does the government have a role in telling people how to eat? We have to find what really works for us, but we still need to know the truth. A great question with many different opinions. And sure, the past thirty or
forty years of experience would say no, they probably shouldn't play that role. The people at the top are not going to change, so we have to make this an upward revolution and get more people
into it until they are ashamed and change their guidelines because population inflation is just ignoring them.

Change is coming from the people. Because they have changed, they are forcing doctors to change. If we can change the medical profession, I think we will achieve something. If you have
prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, there is a way to get rid of it, a
path forward toward health and vitality, with less medication and more energy. You can take back your life and all you have to do is eat real food. If someone has
type 2 diabetes, they can use the internet now, they can watch your movie, they can read something, they can buy a book and start reversing their disease today.

What I see every day with my individual patients as well as my family and friends, I think is missing some of that research, is freedom. It is freedom from anger caused by hunger, it is freedom from lusts. It is freedom from headache. – Wow! – [ALISA] Freedom from reactive hypoglycemia. It is freedom from mood swings. It is a better quality of sleep. It is a better quality of life. – I feel great. I feel really good. Hello girls. The US Dietary Guidelines Committee 2020-2025 defines
low-carb diets as those containing up to 45% of
daily calories in the form of carbohydrates. Low Carb experts say the
definition should be much lower, i.e. between 10-25% of your
daily calories in the form of carbohydrates. In 2019, the American Diabetes Association added "low-carb" diets as an effective nutritional treatment for type 2 diabetes, but the American Diabetes Association continues to recommend a
low-fat diet as a standard of care. In 2018, the American Heart Association received more than $28 million in donations from major pharmaceutical companies.

The American Heart Association is one of the largest nonprofit organizations in America..
