DOES THE KETO DIET KILL? Doctor Reviews Low Carb Diets and Mortality


Hey guys, I’m Siobhan a second-year medical resident Today we’re tackling a super controversial issue and that’s The Keto Diet The question is – is the keto diet actually making 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 fat 20% from protein and only 5% from carbs It’s become one of the most popular diets online and it’s been praised for weight loss, heart health, diabetes management and some even believe it fights 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 totally changed the conversation It’s an article that looked at how much carbohydrates people are eating and if that affected life expectancy. By the end of this video you should be able to make an educated decision about what you want to do with your diet And then I’m gonna *urge* you to share this with people you care about because this could actually affect how long they live. *violin intro plays* So those of you who’ve been following my journey in the hospital at the new doctor know that about six weeks ago I started the keto diet. and the reason I did that is because Overnight I find they’re just so many chips and snacks and candy and … I- This whole year I just feel like I have strayed from my normal habits and so I kind of just 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 sugar cravings It was great. So this week when I was flipping through my computer I saw this article And I figured it was gonna tell me that the lower the carbs you eat the longer you live But that’s not exactly what it says. So the study started about thirty years ago, when they recruited a whole bunch of adults from four different communities in the US They recruited about 15,000 adults and then had them do surveys and they kept track of their health and they tracked them over about 30 years. *okay, that’s deep* So let’s pretend these skittles represent the people in the study First let’s divide them into the amount of carbs they eat in a day. The yellow ones the low-carb group. And so these people about less than 40% of their calories from carbs. The green ones of the moderate carb group. So these guys bought about half of the calories from carbs. And the red ones are the high carb group where they got over 70% of their calories from carbs. Of course this is a simplified model and in the study they worked with really fancy statistical models to get lots of accurate information. So looking at mortality within these groups. It turned out the low-carb (yellow) group and the high-carb (red) group actually died faster than that middle green group. So it looked like Goldilocks and the three bears. The middle 50% carb group actually lived the longest. 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 life experiences That’s huge. I mean, 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 fats and proteins Does it matter what types of fats and proteins you’re actually eating? So they went back to the database and they looked at all the people and they wanted to see the group that eats mostly animal products. So they’re eating meats and cheese, lamb pork, beef, chicken all of that compared to the people who are eating plant-based proteins and fats. So they’re eating nuts and peanut butters and seeds and they’re having lots of vegetables. And unfortunately all those meat lovers out there, it was very clear that people eating plant-based proteins and fats were living longer than those who ate the animal proteins and fats. And that’s tough for me. I actually really love a good steak. *pleasure* Ooo boiii

    I have gastroparesesis so I have to be careful with the high fiber veg. I also don't handle high fat or greasy things well either, so in trying to control my A1C I'm trying a modified version of keto. Lean meats and all the veg I can handle without getting sick. I do cheese, cucumbers, celery or cauliflower as snacks some times ill do peanut butter on my celery. So far so good!

    There are 2 problematic factors that weigh in these studies that should be acknowledged by the medical community , that (1) the people in this study who ate low carb ate less than 40% of their calories with carbs, and this is not in the range of the ketogenic diet. (2) The fact that the meat eaters in the second study's mortality rates being higher than people who consumed vegetable proteins does not take into account of the QUALITY of the meat (which most likely come from grain-fed factory farms where the animals are depressed and sick) and the QUANTITY of meat.

    From what I've learned and follow about keto is to get most of your fats from nuts, avocados, grass fed butter, eggs, hard cheeses, coconut oil, salmon. Some animal fat is fine but dont make it your primary source of fat. Some people have the wrong perspective of keto, it's not bacon and cheese burger meat for every meal although you can lose weight that way it's not healthy keto. Not to say dont eat bacon or hamburger meat just dont make it your primary source of fat, once in a while is good. Common sense helps😏

    Oh look… a bunch of people presented with Empirical evidence, rejecting the empirical evidence, and instead retort with subjective testimonials. "My dad lost 30,0000 pounds blah blah blah"… If you want to present a counter argument, please provide some real tangible evidence. BTW great video!

    As a person of 4 heart attacks and has 9 heart stents and Open Heart surgery with 2 arteries 100% blocked. I can tell you when I  was in recovery I attended a nutrition class another patient there was a man about 90 lbs  and about 55-60 years old, and just had open heart surgery from blocked arteries.  I was obese when I had open heart surgery ( 120 lbs overweight ) I was shocked to learn one dosent have to be obese to get clogged arteries. You can be thin as a toothpick and be very unhealthy. …Stay away from saturated fats as in Bacon ( the fat of it)  Before I watched this video I have been listening and watching videos on youtube from doctors talking about the health benefits and the not so healthy benefits of all different diets. I have been very confused for a very long time, I am 61 years old now. I have come to my conclusion that , I feel the same as the lady in this video. My opinion of this keto diet is , sure you lose weight but your also clogging your arteries at the same time if your eating high saturated fat from steaks and hamburgers Bacon. etc etc.Saturated fat tastes bad too.

    YOUR BRAIN WORKS ON CARBS so yes you lose weight because of ketosis but working in the past with a keto compagny ( lots of doctors and nutritionist working with them ) meat is a temporary solution long term effects are actually really bad, they don't recommend to do it for more than just the time you need to lose the weight . To develop your brain, have a long and healthy life you need to eat healthy and plant based is the best way to do it . But keto as a way to lose fat for a temporary period won't kill you either . Just make sure you are not preaching something that is really not healthy for everyone and not suitable for every one . Young people should not do it, people with certains deases either . Informed yourself and talk to a nutritionist if it is okay for YOU

  7. Reborn Hammer

    How is your diet? Are you still eating a more plant based diet, In that sweet spot of around 50% carbs? If so, have you found you feel healthier?

  8. Kaisa D

    I noticed that you showed a picture of coconut oil with the healthy, plant based products to eat. Doesn't coconut oil have extremely high levels of saturated fat?

  9. Kristen Kate

    Sorry but eating tons of red meat is not good for you period, and high carbs is not good. Eating good protein and good carbs is best. Keto is the Adkins diet just masked with a new name. Having bad high fat protein is not good on your liver.. over time. Diets are fads. Change your life style.

  10. Monkof Magnesia

    She is so cute that I am unable to pay attention to what she is saying. Did her parents name her Siobhan? Even her Canadian accent is cute. Who care how much you weigh when you are that cute?

    I think people need to get educated about foods. I changed my diet after being diagnosed with diabetes. Within 4 months I was off all diabetes medications. And my a1c is perfect.
    I changed out a lot of bad carbs for good carbs. Like I still eat spaghetti. But instead of the pre bought noodles I use squash and load up on veggies in them.
    Know your body, always research diets before trying them, consult with a doctor and a nutritionist or dietitian, and carbs are not the enemy.

  12. Poorni devasena

    I have gall stones after in keto , i have pcos too i loose weight but i got gall stones , i thought i do like what you do. I must create new keto vegan meal plan , anything to recommend ? Also any advice for pcos.

    I know this is a bit of an older video but I have started my healthier eating journey by cutting fast food because I used to eat soooo much fast food. I was so bad for going to McDonalds or burger king for lunch at work. I have been premaking my lunches for work and I'm trying to mostly just eat natural things instead of pre packaged things. Like chicken and veggies and berries, or salads with spinach and kale and other veggies. My boyfriend has been having a lot of fun making elaborate dinners lately, and they aren't the healthiest. (But still better than fast food) so that is my unhealthy food I've been allowing myself to eat.

    Trying to stay on a diet never works. Why not eat food that is not man made. What’s killing people are processed food and sugar. The body thinks it is a foreign substance and the immune starts the whole array of inflammatory responses. Diabetes, heart disease, ms are all cause by inflammation

  15. Adrienne

    Why are all the people in the comments suddenly experts and trying to discredit doctors. They work hard and they’re not perfect but I’d like to think after being in school for 8+ years they know a thing or two about health

    Hi Siobhan My name is Laura and I'm in a wheelchair with muscular distrophy (arthrogryposis to be specific) 2 questions do you ever see people with disabilities or kids in the ER? I'm a harry potter fan and wonder what is your harry potter house? I'm a hufflepuff <3 Laura

    SAD Diet (Standard American Diet) kills more than any other diet. Research how many people have diabetes today to when your great grand parents were your age. Check out the statistical curve there and see if the Keto diet still kills. More people are dying of sugar related diseases now with all our technology than they did in the past. Why? cause your great grand parents ate a lot less sugar had very little access to highly processed sugary foods and had to cook more. Keto makes you eat more natural foods healthy fats leafy vegetables and more importantly forces you to cook more to control your macro nutrients as they enter your body. It releases you from the carbohydrate and sugar addiction you may have eating processed food. Was this the intention of the food companies to make food more addictive by adding sugar to the majority of our processed foods? Fortunately for me I am now in control of how I eat. I eat when I need to, not because of being on a sugar roller coaster. I got off the roller coaster and I am happy to watch the roller coaster with my 2 feet on the ground.

    Therefore

    The study can not be related to a ketogenic lifestyle. The parameters of 5% Carbs were never part of this trial. So therefore apples must not be compared to Salmon and Macadamia nuts.

    Reminds me of a joke…. what do you call a doctor with the lowest mark in their graduation class….. Doctor.

    You might want to educate yourself. I would recommend looking at Dr. Eric Westman’s research. There is starting to be more research about the effectiveness of a ketogenic diet especially in a therapeutic manner for treatment of type 2 diabetes.

    I personally liked high low starch veggies diet with moderate protein and healthy fats. This diet has improved my blood lipids and reduced by body weight by 20% and I feel great, have lots of energy and I am never hungry. Without a Keto diet I would be on medications and have complications of diabetes with heart disease. Now I am healthier and feel much better.

  19. Darani Noori

    I know Keto is good for a short time once you reach the health goals you have to go to the gym and start your normal lifestyle which is decreased carb and fat and Calories intakes.

    Meat based, plant based. I prefer balance based. I’ll eat the bacon, steak, chicken, seafood as well as the eggplant, broccoli, asparagus. I snack on nuts as well as dark 70%+ chocolate. Rice or quinoa. My week is about 30% meat, 20% vegan, 30% vegetarian, 10% carbs, 10% treats (I count fruit here). 4 kids later I’m a size 2, which is down from a size 6 I was in high school when I wouldn’t touch my vegetables and ran from lentils. Where before I would have the 6 oz steak and potatoes. I now have a 2oz steak, asparagus and quinoa. I used to eat 3 strips of bacon for breakfast, I’m good with a strip and an egg with spinach. Too much of anything is bad, that doesn’t mean our only option is to cut it out completely.

    Per your title of “DOES THE KETO DIET KILL?”, I noticed that you hadn’t answered the question. I was reared in a family that works in hospitals and I recall that Diabetic Ketosis is one of the deadliest illnesses known. As far as a “Keto Diet”, what would that answer be if the diet was followed correctly? I just found this channel not long ago and I do love to watch and learn about the daily chores. Bravo on the way you’ve created this vlog and I thank you for the informative nature.

  22. Ram Sar

    Our government controls what we eat so doctors and pharmas make the profit. That’s why there is “Food” and “Drug” Administration (FDA). Do we really need only ONE administration to control both food and drugs? Garbage in Garbage out- “medical” research.

  23. Mach0102

    First it talks about what keto is. Then it calls the low carb group 40% carbs or less. That is certainly not keto. Then it draws conclusions based on eating 40% calories due to carbs and then criticizes keto. This is nothing but anti-keto propaganda and the study had nothing to do with keto.

  24. Emily Shan

    tmw a suicidal person sees a video like this; hah.. good to know. really though, it's good to know. but uh.. also yay ways to die faster without people suspecting >.>

  25. Kody Munson

    I’m a little late, but I’m going to start with cutting meats but chicken and fish and eating less processed foods. Also prepping more food rather than buying it or buying packages foods

  26. suzette macey

    Hello. As a fellow Canadian, I hear what you are saying, but for people with severe eating disorders, the keto diet is the only thing that has given proven results long-term. Thank you for your suggestions although I must agree with those who questioned the studies and especially who funded these studies. The Lancet study is particularly suspect. You are a young Doctor and I wish you all the best in this most amazing calling you have taken on, to help others.

  27. Vive Malasia

    The real thing about all this ,is ear low calories ,to trigger the genes to live longer ! Either fat, protein or carbs ,if you stuff yourself ,sure will live less years !

  28. Max Lim

    It's a shame on you that as an MD you do not even have the curiosity to doubt the research gaps, limitations and uncertainties. I am 100% sure sharing this video would not help those people to clarify things further. Seriously, shame on you.

  29. Michael Palmer

    What has this got to do with Keto again? Keto is less than 5% of calories from carbs. None of these people were in Ketosis. BS

  30. Sandra Simmonds

    The study referred to here was not based on people following the Keto diet, just 'low carb' which is not representative of the Keto science. For anyone interested in finding out more about Keto science, listening to at least the following three people might prove beneficial. You can Google or YouTube search these people. Dr Stephen Phinney, Dr Paul Mason (obtained his medical degree with honours from the University of Sydney, and also holds degrees in Physiotherapy and Occupational Health. He is a Specialist Sports Medicine and Exercise Physician.) His YouTube lecture on cholestrol is brilliant. Dr. D'Agostino (is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida College Of Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology where he develops and tests metabolic therapies, including alternative energy substrates and ketogenic agents for neurological disorders, cancer, etc.) Dr. Benjamin Bikman (earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. He is currently a professor of pathophysiology and a biomedical scientist at Brigham Young University in Utah.) These are people are not mugs; they are people who undertake scientific research in the area of metabolism and biochemistry and it's worth listening to what they are saying. They are not the only ones. Much misunderstanding of Keto comes about from the way it is being commercialised and incorrectly characterised …. it is a diet that (at its best) requires eating whole foods, selected fats and oils, quality protein and lots of vegetables, certain nuts, certain fruits with limited quality dairy. It is not a diet 'high in protein' – it is moderate, quality animal protein. Disappointed that there was not more information given about the actual Keto diet (and its further use of intermittent fasting) because people unsure about it could be put off by your limited explanation.

    “How much bacon did you eat in the last 6 months?”
    It’s because of these types of Survey questions that these studies are weak.
    At best they might suggest something to look into, and at worst confuse people. Eggs are bad no wait eggs are good. Coffee is bad no wait coffee is good. My mistake eggs and coffee are good if you combine them and stand on your head.
    All these Ivy League schools graduate idiots. The same idiots that run our governments corporations even religions.

  34. Gabryel Steinmetz

    Second year med student… I doubt you have much research experience because that studies has a multitude of issues in how they take collected and analyzed the data regarding the low carb foods they were eating. Also economic classes they come from and the amount and how often they eat are huge factors.

  35. Destiny Rose

    I have been told the way in which carbs were attached to an increase in weight and so generally to avoid carbohydrate, on the other hand had in no way considered using them to lose excess body fat. The primary idea behind the 4 interval fat loss treatment would be to teach your entire body to burn fat for energy as a substitute for carbohydrates. https://tinyurl.com/y92nuszy

    When I study to be an RN we had to do a subject about research and about just taking results from one study where's the peer reviews on that study? Just doing surveys is one of the worst types of research, you relying on people to give you the answer. no they stated in what's known as the blue zone with people live very long healthy wise. Maybe you should research and what they eat in the blue zones

  37. Xx Kim Xx

    I have decided to change up my lifestyle slowly 3 years a going I decided to cut out caffeine completely (mainly drinks) and only drink herbals and recently I have switched out meat and animal products and go vegetarian /vegan. I'm mainly doing this to try better a number of my own long term medical conditions and to improve my mental health

  38. fffjkjk jkjkjk

    I think it is healthy to reserve a bit of skepticism on all researches(corporate sponsored). We live in capitalism where only profit matters, not human lives. Case by case a lot of research papers are paid by an interest group to manufacture consents.

  39. Come vlog with Justin

    If you have a balanced diet To be in the middle have high carbs from vegetables and low carbs from meat with fastings inbetween

  40. Christ died for our sins

    My brother was doing this diet and he died 2 months ago but I don't know if it was also because he drank alcohol. He started to lose weight and then never stopped losing weight and eventually died He got pancreatitis which is caused by a high fat diet and also alcohol. Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures was buried and rose again on the third day according to the scriptures 1 Corinthians 15 verse 3 Jesus said he is the bread of life.

  41. TheCeublu3

    Doctor, how about who is in warfarin and kidney failure stage 3b? I'm on a diet to lose weight but there's high vitamin k and protein can affect those situations (?)…

  42. Deb Wadsworth-Mcgrath

    I am a plant base eater for about a year now. I also am a type 1 diabetic and this has helped me. I still crave carbs and sweets. I would like more info on what to eat. [email protected] I have considered the Keto diet but not sure it is right for diabetics …I really do not want to go back to meats.

  43. Sam Sung

    2:05… They recruted about 15000 adults and tracked them over more than 30 years. – you're such a fake. It's a survey. Not even keto. I for one hate liars.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce6eHcUOc4s This explains this study far better than I could. I have also looked into the study and what he says is true. Shocking!!!!!!

  45. Leslie R.

    I have a question, though- my mom had gastro-bypass surgery and is now on a high protein, low-carb diet now (kind of like keto in essence) So does that mean that it will be bad for her in the long run? She does eat some carbs, but she doesn’t eat too many because her stomach just can’t handle it of course. Just wondering if it’s different for those who have had weight loss surgery or not?

  46. susannahXD

    I have lots of digestive and health issues. When I was younger, I used to diet to make myself look better, and felt vain for doing so. Little did I realise that I was saving my brain and my health, not only my figure! After years of eating more and more chocolate in a media and friend-inspired drive to 'love myself', I'm realising that truly loving myself would be eating in tune with what will help my body, and I'm going back to healthy eating in a big way! I'm committing to eating fewer calories in total per day, only eating when I'm genuinely hungry, and eating a good balance of veg, carbs and proteins (sometimes I get carb phobia so it's good to hear that carbs aren't the enemy!)

    Here's to hoping it will help with the health and digestive issues. Fingers crossed, wish me luck!!!!

    PS I feel totally inspired by your commitment and dedication to your work and your life in general. It's really great that you make an effort to stay in good health and also that you practise your violin! I'm a musician too and I'm hoping to keep up piano playing and singing even whilst I do my psychology masters!! Lots of respect for you <3

  47. Robann Parsons

    Oh wow, would you look at this. A wave of non qualifying, non educated, foaming at the mouth skeptics invaded the common section to tell someone who actually is obtaining the qualifications to save THEIR damn lives how they're not educated enough to speak on this subject. OF COURSE this doesnt apply to every single person, hence the blurb on the bottom left corner that popped up and said CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR before trying out a new diet. You didnt need to be trying keto to know this, nutritionists say this all of the time.

  48. Michael Bedoya

    Thanks for this I don’t like the idea of eating high quantities of meet, a plant base meal plan is what I want, your thoughts on getting diabetes under control.

  49. Mike Sloan

    Many of the few docs in the US that have a practice referred to as "Longevity Management" say that there are a particular phenotype, numbering between 12-20% of patients that responds to a keto diet in a somewhat negative way by having things like lipids skyrocketing, markers of inflammation going way out of range, things that are associated with chronic disease states, however, they discovered it wasn't due to the high fat per se but the saturated fats only that were causing the issue, because they did an experiment with several patients in this phenotype and had them knock down their saturated fats to 25% and the rest of the fats had to be monounsaturated, within 6-12 weeks all the issues were gone, so most people who go ketogenic don't have this issue, however, knowing these phenotypes exist in the wild, it now becomes prudent to check your markers of inflammation 12 weeks after starting on a keto diet containing a high level of saturated fats.

    I recently turned 70 at 308 lbs. I have decisions to make. There is no history in my family for heart disease except for my dad, but there is a high incident of dementia and Alzheimer on my mother's side. My mother and 4 of 5 of her sisters died of Alzheimers. My dad had a heart attack at about 75 yrs old but he was Type 2 when slightly over 70. His approach to Type 2 was: "Easy. Eat a pound of sugar, take a pound of insulin, no problem!" He lived the last 10 years of his life in a nursing home where his diet was somewhat better controlled. He died at 92 years old one morning. His last meal was a DQ blizzard ice cream, then lay down for a nap and a little later died of heart failure. Not bad for being so casual about his health. I am happy for him! But I have to change!

    The biggest dangers to me are Type 2 and dementia . A fatal heart attack would be a blessing now that I'm over 70. Statins are linked to dementia, and actually statistically do nothing to lower morbidity, so I weaning myself off of statins. I expect war to break out with my doctor next visit because of this and because I live alone, I will win this one. The thing is my doctor doesn't have to do my dying, I do . The other thing is Keto with IF to reduce weight. I've lost 30 lbs in last 6 weeks. Other people have controlled to some extent the way I live but now, I finally have more control about how I will die. I don't want the extra-large coffin when I croak. After I reach 165 lbs, I will gladly go to DQ for a blizzard if they would guarantee a fatal heart attack. I feel good about that .

  51. Dialectix Emcee

    this anti-fat shit is so low science Can we please see some reliable studies man? "survey's" like for real? Im a vegetarian and the Keto evidence seems a million times stronger to me than vegan

  52. Danrex

    But this doesn’t have anything to do with Keto because < 40% carbs is way to high. It almost seems like you cherry picked this study. There are studies from Europe that shows when you seperate groups who eat processed meat vs meat in its natural state (think hamburger patty vs steak) the unprocessed meat eaters had lower mortality rates even compared to vegetarians.

  53. nope

    For all the people thinking they reversed or cured their diabetes on Keto, you didn’t, eat some carbs and boom still have diabetes. Fat causes insulin resistance and diabetes.

  54. Gem Fost

    Personally I think that any fad diet is just that and everyone should strive to eat a balanced whole foods diet, provided they don't have special medical needs. It seems that many people look for reasons to indulge in certain foods.

  55. Jayden Desino

    Those states aren’t known for being the healthiest. I would look more into studies that go across the board considering how many people live in this country. Keto was originally invented for those with epileptic seizures to follow short term and not for the main stream population to follow long term. My GI and dietician would consider this video to be dangerous
