  1. I've heard you say over and over again that you can't burn fat when insulin is present and the best way to lower insulin is the ketogenic diet. Why are so many high carb people enjoying a low body fat %???? They are all over youtube.

  2. So can i go to doctors to ask them for something to lower cortisol if its high?? and would Fat Burners + Sports helps to lose fat/Weight?? Thanks a lot Dr.

  3. yep i learned about this when i caught adrenal fatigue crazy cortisol in blood … i was pre diabetic and over due for a heart attack at age 25 now 26 and have lost over 40 lbs and will be competing in bodybuilding competition sept 26 … if anybody needs tips on weight loss feel free to follow me on ig jeremyfernandez1990 … remember cardio after weight training turns your body into a real life fat burner

  4. I just made a comment about how I'm struggling losing weight on different Dr. Berg video. I am a teacher and is it summer time (no demands) so my stress levels are low. The school year is very stressful, so yes this is a problem then. I'm going to reduce any possible carbs and see if this makes a difference.

  5. I don't understand. How do fruitarians and vegans lose weight when in a caloric deficit if insulin (which they get tons of carbs…so tons of insulin) prevents fat burning?

  6. But, even in for instance broccoli is like 6 grams of carbs for each 100 gr.. Can I eat anything without completely blocking off all fat burning hormones then?

  7. Just discovered your web/youtube today and been listening… I found your diet information is vitally educational, scientific and truthful which I will follow from now. I will order your wheat grass powder after this. Thank you!

  8. I read many good opinions on the net about how exactly Fenoboci Diet Plan (search on google) can assist you lost a ton of weight. Has anyone tried this popular weight loss secrets?

  9. Is Fenoboci Diet Plan useful to lost crazy amounts of weight? I've read numerous good stuff about Fenoboci Diet Plan (search on google).

  10. Great video content! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you thought about – Chireetler Stubborn Fat Rule (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for discovering what to eat to balance hormones and eliminating trouble fat spots minus the headache. Ive heard some great things about it and my work buddy got great results with it.

  11. If you want to lose weight, you should look up Fenoboci Diet Plan on the internet. They'll make it easier to get the shape you need.

  12. I am drinking Weight Loss Green Store Tea before my every meal as recommended. Besides the really pleasant and smooth taste, I noticed that this Teaa fixes my bowel problem, so constipation doesn't bother me any more. I've lost 8 lb gives me great energy no need for energy drinks anymore. Thanks Weight Loss Green Store Tea

  13. When considering eating healthy, you have to never fall victim to modern day fad diet plans. Extreme diets are a threat for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your everyday nutritional intake. Many of these fad diets work for a short period of time and then the benefits decrease after a while. You should look up Fenoboci Diet Plan on the google search engine as it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.
