  1. Hey! We’re doing a 50 day “New Habit” challenge to start the new year if anyone wants in. Just go to and print off the 50 day worksheet. Turn your New Years motivation into lasting habits!

  2. For some reason keto has always been a quick adaption for me. Like it takes me about 2 days to go from glycogenic to ketosis

  3. I was going strong for about 3 weeks, not full on keto but very low carb, high fat. This weekend decided to “splurge” on regular pizza, per our family’s regular Friday night pizza night – SOO paying for it today 😩. I feel so nauseated, weak, dizzy, thirsty, dry-mouth, stopped up, etc. Wish this wasn’t a thing to have to deal with if I ever stray from it.

  4. Hi guys, I watched few of your videos and you usually recommend beef and chicken, I didn’t hear about pork and ground pork. You don’t eat pork? It’s more fat in pork I think, and I heard red meet harder to digest then pork.

  5. I had to pause the video laughing in the first 20 seconds because the automatic subtitles said “with an awesome introductory taquito series” and I’m essentially a toddler

  6. This is great.
    This was my plan… to try and keep it simple.
    Every thing I find makes it complicated. I wanted to make it cost effective because my husband will not be eating this diet and my son will probably try some of mine..

  7. @14:51 You started talking about “steam it” since I have hearing issues want to make sure what you said. was not “Stream It” that a website or a whole new thing like You Tube and hey I’m a chatty Kathy how’s that comment $ rebate work.

  8. I asked a friend who has used Keto for the best source on how to start Keto and he recommended this page. I really appreciate your attitude–kinda chill–because I can be pretty compulsive about doing things “right”! I intend to start soon, but of course I need to do my research first.
    BTW: I tried to use your macro-calculator and I couldn’t get it to work…help?

  9. This was great. I’ve been KETO successfully for awhile, this was a great review, Checking all the boxes and making sure I’ve got all the bases covered. Thanks!

  10. Hello Matt & Megha I love you both enjoy watching you all. I am interested in your plan program but I wish you all would offer a discount code or a discount period. Please advise thanks

  11. I’m viewing from Scotland and I’m amazed at the amount of supplies I can get in local supermarkets for my new keto diet. I did not realise, or notice, how many products were on the shelves that originate in the USA. I’m delighted to see that, as there us a lot of negativity about the quality of American food within the political furore linked to Brexit. Keep up the good work, I’m really enjoying your videos and the food you recommend.

  12. The Magnesium supplement you linked to is Magnesium Oxide with Amino Acid Chelate.
    Does this mean it will break a fast like Branched Chain Amino Acids?

  13. Going and looking at videos. Just started a few weeks ago. Question? Where do you all live? I notice the Austin T-shirt.

  14. Hi keto connet I trying keto for the first time I was starting with a coach but after a conversation I realize that her idea of keto was not eating at all going on 24 hour crazy fasting days was not my idea of keto and I declined the contract. I want to feel great with lots of energy that’s why I think this diet it’s perfect for me. so here I am lost I’ve been searching around but didn’t connect with anyone until your information and videos are everything and a little more. I am so happy and I want to thank you both for putting the time to help others like me.

  15. I know this video is over a year old, but just wanted to say this is the first thing I’ve showed my husband that got him excited about changing our diets. On to video 2!

  16. I love your videos but when Megha speaks, Matt isn’t relaxed. He’s waiting to speak. I know a lot of people talk about Matts speech impediment but that’s not what I’m talking about Let the woman speak please

  17. Not gonna lie. I watch the two of you because you are f***ing ADORABLE!!!!! That’s it 🙂 But you are also really helpful and inspiring and I’m going to try keto for the 3rd time starting Monday. Wish me luck!

  18. Quick questions to any one who can answer it…
    I sometimes feel sick to my stomach after digesting healthy fats (mostly coconut oil/milk, and bacon. But I’ve felt weird after eating cheese and having foods with olive oil on it.) I can handle meat, fish, avocado, nuts and seeds, etc. just fine.
    Does any body have any suggestions to adding in the healthy fats to a diet subtly and slowly? (I’ve tried smoothies but have the same sick feeling). Or is there any substitutes that anyone knows of for the healthy fats so my diet wouldn’t be as limited?
    Thank you in advance! 🙂

  19. Do you have any reccomendations on where to start with a keto diet that is more vegetarian focused (or more specifically pescitarian)? I am interested in keto eating, but I am getting overwhelmed with all of the info and how most websites just want my money. lol.

  20. I just started keto.. 3 days no caffeine and bulletproof coffee makes me throw up. I keep trying it and I cant keep it down. I really don’t like butter and i love my coffee iced.

    I feel like 0g of sugar is impossible but i keep trying. Most vegetables contain natural sugars even asparagus.
    3 days and I always go over 20g of carbs. I go over my protein intake too and I can’t meet fat intake.
    Everyone tells me to quit but I’m only 3 days in.
    I usually have 800mg of caffeine 6x a week. I’m an on-the-go mom 6x a week.
    I’m searching for the perfect keto coffee that tastes good.
    I’m lost on how many grams of sugar you can have.
    I eat eggs, turkey bacon, almond milk, asparagus, ground beef, ground turkey, chicken breast and skin on thighs.
    I suck at keto

  21. The problem I’m finding is most of the sites I read up on have conflicting information with each other? That’s right. Like sucralose. Who watched your video on sweeteners and sucralose have no impact. but then someone else posted an article on a Facebook page I follow that says even pure sucralose causes weight gain and insulin spikes. How in the world are we supposed to know what is right?

  22. I love that you mentioned the high on protein issue towards the end because I track my macros and I always feel like im always going over my protein limit and it was just nice to hear that thats an issue that beginners have. I will strive to get better 🙂 thanks for the videos.

  23. So you guys mentioned that you use my fitness pal. I also use it and I was just wondering how and if you could program it to calculate net carbs? It just shows grams of carbs. And it does show fiber so I could just calculate it myself but I was wondering if it could do it for me?

  24. You can’t do 0 carbs, because body needs some carbs to produce erythrocytes. You see, erythrocytes has no mitochondrion so they can only use carbs as energy source.

  25. Good day to the two of you. Thanks for all of your time and awesome information on the Keto Lifestyle. Truly Enjoy. I was attempting to go to your link for the Meal Prep Course. Although, McAfee is blocking it due to it being a Malicious Site. Are you aware of this? Please advise? Thanks Again for all of your amazing information on Keto

  26. I just started keto today yay! I’ve been watching your videos for awhile and I absolutely adore you both! Thank you for all the info, everything you do is so appreciated!

  27. Hey Guys!!! My boyfriend and I are beginners to keto but my concern is he’s diabetic and on insulin shots so being on keto for about two weeks his sugar level has dropped but to low like 60 so how does he stay away from sugar if sugar is what he needs to take if it drops to low and how does a person get out of being a diabetic on keto I’m really trying to help him

  28. Thanks to you guys (and pointing out pseudo-keto foods) I lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks, my doctor was impressed. Thanks and I look forward to watching the rest of your videos!

  29. Please do a video on meal plans for people who can’t eat dairy and eggs. Puhlease! Finding it hard to reach macro levels.

  30. 420 lbs and going on keto cause I don’t want to die, Your videos are funny but very helpful. I have a foodstamp type of budget and the walmart grocery video helped me figure out my macro levels and ways to achieve them

  32. Do you guys live in Austin?? I like the shirt. I did low carb AIP for two years but then added more carbs to heal my adrenals. I’m attempting Keto now!

  33. My favorite snack is cubed cheese and grapes. I used to eat it for dinner every day. I can’t imagine life without it. What do you suggest I replace it with?

  34. you guys are awesome..I just started and your videos are straight forward, honest and motivating. Everything I was looking for. Thank you!! Happy New Year

  35. I just found you guys and this whole playlist of getting started with Keto and you’re the first people to make sense to me and make it seem easy enough for me to do!  Thank you so much!!  I’m doing this diet to fix my health issues and I was getting to the point where I was close to throwing in the towel.  So thank you for showing me how to make it simple!!!  <3

  36. Really enjoyed this video on keto – an easy way to begin with just counting carbs. I have slowly been decreasing sugar and wheat products – now I am ready to start counting the carbs.

  37. I have found that I just don’t get drunk, I have never drunk alot of liquor. But this last fall me and hubby drank some gin, and then some more, and then some more ! We had at that point been on keto for 8 months ,and had not broken that fast for over a month. I barely got a buzz, I have never in my lifetime ingested as much in an evening. Went to bed, and woke up rearing to go. Not even a hangover.

  38. TODAY my husband and I started our KETO JOURNEY! Made our Day one video and I sure hope as we do follow ups to have some good results and updates!

  39. Aghhh! So last Friday, I had a couple friends over. I’m not a drinker. Like, maybe once every couple months I’ll have a couple glasses of red wine. Anyway, I had about three glasses of red wine, but over the course of a few hours. I was definitely tipsy but not out of control, and again, I was at my own house, you know? I ended up puking my guts out. It was kind of horrifying! I just kept thinking, why did this hit me so hard? This is the second time in my entire life I’ve thrown up because of alcohol. The only thing that has really changed is that I now eat keto. I didn’t expect being in ketosis would affect how I handled alcohol. Lesson learned!

  40. Keep the carbs under 20net grams no matter how heavy or tall you are or anything like that? It’s not like calories where you intake a certain amount for your weight?

  41. I been watching a lot of videos on the keto diet since it is something I am going to be trying next week for 1 month and I hear everyone say to make sure you get electrolytes so I was wondering could I drink pedialyte? I haven’t heard anyone saying they drink that… please let me know bcs the whole keto flu symptoms scare me lol

  42. What about hormones and antibiotics in meats? Does that matter so much? How and where do you get good quality meats for a reasonable price?? That’s the hard part, should I not worry about it too much

  43. Hi there hope its ok, but i just started a youtube channel about Keto Mexican Food, its pretty tasty hope you like it, it would mean a lot for your support✌

  44. I started Keto last week. I track everything I eat and I am an avid meal prepped. I’ve upped my water intake and I do take fiber supplements. I’ve had less bloating and feel better. So far it’s going well-wish me luck!

  45. Hello Keto Connect, I am new to the Keto diet and have been watching your channel. Finding a plethora of great info. Being entertained by the two of you and inspired to make and do some of the tips and well thought out living with eating needs videos. I am a new blogger and will be writing a story about my move to keto. I’d like to include a link to your channel within it. Please let me know if this would be appropriate. here is a link to my website. . Thank you for all of your hard work figuring out some of the hard stuff so it makes it an easier transition to a healthy happy keto diet. Cheers! Callie

  46. How important is it for each meal to be balanced? If at the end of the day I am under 20g net carbs, but I consumed all of those carbs for lunch – huge bowl of spinach and brussels sprouts without fat or protein, is that going to cause a spike that will kick me out of Ketosis?

  47. I just started this keto lifestyle and I’ve lost about 10lbs in a week . My goal is to be at a healthy BMI.

  48. Really helpful for Keto beginners…Support from Kerala :), I did start my keto 10 days before to loose ma weight, amazing result..!!

  49. Thanks a million for this very informative video! I’m using it (and your website) to help me write a speech for my public speaking class on how to properly follow the keto diet. I hope to continue spreading as much helpful info about it as possible ^^

  50. the only thing that i keep thinking about is how they don’t do fruit. I can’t imagine my life without sugar, but will give a go.

  51. How does a Keto lifestyle affect cholesterol and blood pressure considering there’s a lot of fat and salt intake?

  52. I seem to have a hard time eating a lot of calories. So far on my 6th day of keto, only one or two days have I gone over 1000 calories. Is that a problem.

  53. I aim to keep my net carbs under 45 carbs and often I’m under 30. I’m still losing weight… Am I doing it right??

  54. How about a drink. I’m so used to having a sweet drink, but diet. Caffeen doesn’t bother me at all. I crave a sweet drink, I’m not really a water person, but I’m trying to adjust. Any good suggestions from anyone?

  55. This was very well explained and not complicated. Thank you !! I’m starting tomorrow. Slowly but surely I’ll start to feel better and lose the 50lbs that I need! I just subscribed. You guys are really good at explaining and making things easy to understand. A lot of these channels for Keto they just ramble and ramble on and never get to the point, and just promote themselves. You guys got straight to the point and I learned a lot and I’m excited for my Keto journey!

  56. Awesome video! Love love love you guys. Very useful info on the 13th day of my keto journey. I am taking notes, stopping and rewinding 🙂 Like a lot about having whole food, meal prep, packed meal +packed snacks, takeout options. Love that dog shown up at left bottom at about 5 minutes into the video 🙂 Love Miley too beautiful cat

  57. Hey guys, my husband and I have been keto for a month now, and in two months we have a good friend’s wedding. We really want to be able to eat their cake! What can we do? Will we screw up our fat adaptation? Can we just have a small peice and eat very little carbs before the reception?

  58. Great info… I’m thinking about trying this lifestyle… on a different note put a ring on that beautiful woman’s finger! She’s a keeper man! She’s absolutely stunning 😍😍😍

  59. Thanks for this awesome video. I am on my 2nd week of Keto Diet and let me say that the first week was horrible but I stuck to it. Now im on my second week and i feel better than ever i have more energy and I always can’t wait for coffee time !! anyways I’m glad I found you guys because you guys give awesom tips and great videos. I am definately subbed and liking the videos (:

  60. You guys are awesome. I’m starting my keto diet today (8/27/18). Keeping my fingers crossed. Just used your macro calculator which was a great help. I’m also doing the 16/8 intermittent diet which i’m doing on weekdays. I think my biggest hurdle is not eating rice so wish me luck guys!

  61. I need coffee in the morning, I have 3 kids under age 7, including a 4 week old. I was going to do my keto coffee which is 1 TBS MCT oil, 1 TBS hemp hearts, and 1 TBS coconut butter. I was going to have that and then the rest of the day maybe 8 eggs and an avacado or 2 for the rest of the day. OR maybe only like 4 eggs and 1 avocado for lunch and then a big salad with kale and spinach, 4 TBS fetta, 1 TBS olive oil, a little red onion, salt and pepper… Maybe a TBS walnuts. Is this all too much? Anyones input is welcome. I’m also exclusively breastfeeding so take that into consideration for calories etc. I also get to the gym for at least an hour each evening m-f and in the AM on the weekend. Oh, and what about using Keto OS to help get into ketosis faster. Thanks

  62. really helped me understand a lil but better.. especially with u mentioning for starters to look out for those carbs to keep under 20 net carbs. total carbs minus fiber.. think im gonna give it a try.. and once i do that whats the next step and when do i know its the next step?

  63. Are you guys picky with your bacon? Well your meats period on keto? But I’m wondering if you eat any bacon or sausage. Do you buy uncured? Do you look for bacon that has no sugar in it?

    Congrats on your book. I just saw it in BAM the other day 🙂

  64. I found switching to Keto really easy. I just moved in with my boyfriend and I know that our surroundings can make us crave our ‘old’ non-keto food. So We started on the second day I was here. We kept our cupboards with only keto food and made our meals together. We stayed as close to carbs as we could. I think I eat more carbs than he does, but I remain until 7g net. Honestly, I’m not a huge health person nor into food, but its actually been really great. Im down 13 pounds in a month and I don’t miss the other food. I make my substitutes and its been great! Hopefully, Ill get more into the more advances macro counting when I understand it a bit more.

  65. Thanks so much for this video – I tried doing Keto in the past and just couldn’t get my head wrapped around it. Now I’m ready thanks to y’all’!!!

  66. i think i went into ketosis, but then started eating just enough carbs to get out of it. keto flu sux!! i thought i had ross river fever.

  67. Thank you soooo much for your help, I just started this diet and had so many questions…..your helping me to understand!! xo

  68. Hi I’m new to Keto and I’m just starting so I purchased a large roll of 73 lean 27 fat ground beef and meal prepped and ate with it ….so is my Keto ruined or should I start over with leaner beef?!!

  69. My husband is not hungry enough to eat his amount of food on keto. Should he force it or eat only when he is hungry? Thank you for your help.

  70. I fasted today and will start tomorrow…I am very excited and I can’t wait to see myself in 6 weeks or so with bike riding included…you two are my favorite keto videos and then I do like the Headbangers Kitchen too. My wheels are turning in my head for ideas for new foods…..wish me luck and from my will to Gods will amen

  71. I have been on Keto for about a week now. I am doing great at low carb and protein is no issue…but how do I get more fats? I’m cooking in butter and using olive oil…I eat avocados frequently, but I don’t feel like I’m hitting the right fat levels. What can I add in to help?

  72. I have been following you guys for about a month but just found these Quickstart beginner guides and it is great refresher!😉

  73. Hi Both, just started Keto and found your channel to be very informative and entertaining!! I felt great for the first week but this week I’ve felt like crap, is this normal? Thanks from England x

  74. I’ve seen a lot of videos were people say they went to the ER eating under 20 carbs. I personally keep it at 30 net carbs and I wouldn’t go under 20. As long as you’re under 50 you’re fine.

  75. While watching this video I’m thinking about carne asada tacos and horchata, I think I’m gonna start the diet next monday.

  76. Thank you so much for this channel, if it wasnt for you guys I would have struggled with Keto. I appreciate all the information you share!

  77. Hi, I just started to watch your videos and I have a question for you guys. Would you recommend the Keto diet for someone who has high cholesterol?

  78. Why are quest bars ok? The front of the package says 4 net carbs, but the back it says 22 carbs. Can you explain? I’m confused.

  79. This was a great starter video for me, I’ve been researching all week how to prep for our keto journey, excited to go food shopping this weekend for everything! Love your channel!

  80. Been intermittent fasting for 3 weeks and start keto tomorrow 🙂 145kgs and hoping to get Down to 95kgs in the next 2 years, your vids definitely make me feel more confident for success

  81. I’ve been needing a change for my health and have heard so much about Keto. But like some people are sweets people, I am a carb person 😣 Pasta especially. I eat a Nature Valley coconut butter breakfast bar everyday and just looked- 24g carbs! I eat two small packs of Gushers (cause I’m 5) every night- 20g carb in each pack! 😣 This seems like its going to be really hard. One thing I cannot give up for certain won’t even consider right now is Pepsi Max. It says zero carbs. It’s a diet drink. I live off it. Do I have to toss it? My husband says every diet ever is going to make me toss it. Idk man giving up my Pepsi max is my biggest barrier to any diet to be honest regardless of how dumb it sounds. But I have rapidly gained weight over the last two years and have to do something before it gets any more out of control. I’m just a bit discouraged. I know I want the outcome without the work/sacrifice and that’s my self standing in my way.

  82. I listen to a lot of keto you tube and i hear both, more fat than protein or more protein than fat. I need the best answer for loosing weight.

  83. so my first question is are we looking at all foods as carbohydrates? and as long as i eat 20 carbs a day from any food group am i doing keto?

  84. This has been so helpful for me. Thank you for keeping it simple just so I can get started. I have searched many Keto videos and they were too detailed. Thank you, again.

  85. Can you make me a 7 day ketogenic meal plan pleaseeeeeee.I am 1.80cm and 90kg. I will appreciate this more than you can imagine.

  86. You’re channel is the best thing I’ve found! I’m subscribed to your ig, YouTube and your site! I’m new to keto and everything I’ve found on your videos has helped me!!! Especially the Marco calculator! Your videos have made this lifestyle change easy for me! I’m a week into the keto lifestyle

  87. guys im literally just starting out on day 2…however i need to know what happens if magnesium supplements hurt ur tummy? i think i have allergies i cannot take it…any suggestions?

  88. Vodka has lower carbs than most liquors. The less flavor, the better I have found. Flavored vodka is loaded with artificial garbage, I’m certain, as is displaying nutrition information for alcoholic beverages is not legally mandated.
    Also, high high alcohol content beers, such as double IPA, tends to give you the same Buzz but with considerably lower calories and sugar due to the fact that you have to consume less beer. Another advantage to high alcohol content beer is that you don’t spend this much time urinating, which I find to be advantageous when trying to socialize.
    But none of this matters to me anyway, because thankfully, I was able to quit drinking after a few years of battling alcoholism. I’m much better for the experience.

  89. +Keto Connect
    Been on Atkins about 7 yrs ago. Lost 60 lbs. Then gained it back. Then lost 40 lbs 4 yrs ago and then gained it back. Just heard of ketogenic diet just about one month ago. Been trying to do it with intermittent fasting and what I know about Atkins but have already plateaued at 5 lbs down from my start weight of 250. My healthy rage BMI max is 172 lbs. Got a long way to go again. I know I must be doing it it wrong, though. As a diabetic T2. I’m worried about ketoacidosis. However, I have learned from past successes lost from lack of continued commitment. Hope, I can get it to stick this time as I want to make keto a permanent part of my life style. I am newly subbed and optimistic for your channels suggestions and infos.

  90. Hey guys, your video was very informative thanks a lot. I have a question for you. I have started with keto diet and today was my 2 nd day ,I did pretty well so far. Am on this diet for weight loss. I have 3 weeks of time. Am hoping with keto I’ll be able to loose some weight by 21st of June. Post that I have my sister’s wedding because of which I am trying this to look better and I hope to continue post that. Well my question is it worth trying for 3 weeks? Will I be able to achieve anything in this span? Please try to answer my questions. Thanks

  91. wow, i’m glad I found this video. I’ve been reading up on the Keto diet for almost two weeks and feel so intimidated. I didn’t know where to begin, still not sure I understand the whole net carbs thing, and how am I going to measure what I eat in grams? But I will take your advice and take it a day at a time. I started my diet today with eggs, salami and spinach. I look forward to learning more from you guys.

  92. I started losing a lot of weight in a short period of time, approximately 15 to 18 ponds in about a year.
    An acquaintance of mine who is diabetic noticed the weight loss, along with a few other things, and suggested I test my glucose level with his meter. 495 was the reading. He made me go to the hospital right than… Well, I soon learned I have Adult Unset Type 2 Diabetes, and that I most likely have had it for 6 – 10 years with out knowing it.

    As I began to educate myself, it seems as if 99.999999999% of the diabetes related info I come across was focused on those with diabetes that are over weight. When it comes to being under weight due to diabetes (which is one of the top signs that someone may have diabetes), there is nothing out there except for a few general info short articles or a quick note in a paragraph in various literature. Especially regarding how to regain the weight lost, and a diet that works for those with diabetes.

    I finally gave up searching the diabetic side of things and focused more on finding the right diet. One that would allow me to gain back my weight, and at the same time manage diabetes successfully. I had already began to find that Meats were my best source of Healthy Fats, but still many sources of info contradicted each other. That all changed yesterday, because I came across “The Magic Pill” a documentary just released, based on High Healthy Fat Diet (oh, and the documentary has nothing to do with a magic pill). It opened my eyes, and helped point me in the right direction.

    Now I am here began to review the info on your website. Any help advice, hints or suggestions you might have regarding my physical situation would be appreciated.

  93. I loved this, super simple explanation! For me, in the beginning, the hardest part was finding recipes. I came across a really awesome free cookbook online that helped me out a TON.

    Here is the link to the cookbook that helped me out ..

  94. You guys are awesome! I really appreciate your easy to understand guide to Keto. The struggle is real and I have been lazy in getting on with it and actually digging in to figure out how to get started. This video was very about making it simple enough for me and my schedule.

  95. Take magnesium, calcium zinc with a vitamin D3 before bed. This will stop leg cramps also! The D3 helps the Magnesium work!

  96. Hi Meg and Matt! I’ve been doing moderately strict Keto for about a month now and I’ve lost about 15 pounds(probably mostly water weight but hey I’ll take it) and I’m still learning a lot and I just found y’all’s videos and subscribed! Thanks for all of the great info! It’s a huge help! I definitely want to get more strict and these videos are so informative! Y’all rock!

  97. I’m using my fitness pal and had entered a carb level to achieve (or not go past!) And with all the vegetables (some fruit in green drink ie. 1 apple is all) I’m going over. I use spinach, peppers, onions, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, brussel sprouts so far in the past week. Do I need to really watch the good veg I consume too?

  98. Snacks. You two are great! Thank you for the great info. I’ve watched videos til I’m blue in the face and was a little leery of the rigidity of this diet but y’all make it seem really doable.

  99. I’m moving to a new state in a couple months. Any chance y’all could do a video about setting up a Keto Kitchen? I’m going to be decreasing my carbs up to the move and starting Keto once we are in our new house!

    I’d love any and all recommendations for getting set up for success!

  100. You’re wearing an Austin Texas shirt… that makes me wonder if you’re local! I’ve stumbled on like 4 YouTube’s lately, in all different genres that are ATX based!

  101. My son has uncontrollable epilepsy and also is cognitively delayed and it was suggested by his neurologist from Mayo Clinic to start the modified Adkins diet. Well we started on Monday and I’m already so frustrated! I find myself so lost in finding recipes he’ll eat. I bought a few cookbooks but we like the everyday meals. I’m so glad I watched this video. I guess I’m trying to hard to figure this all out in only a couple days. Thank you for the great pep talk! I’m looking forward to watching the next 3 video’s 🙂

  102. Thank you!! I was getting a bit overwhelmed about starting and I love your approach, it makes more sense. I was on Atkins in the past so I am somewhat familiar. GREAT information, I took notes and will be going to the store today! YAY! 🙂

  103. Thank you! I am researching this. I have done Atkins before but found it too hard to maintain when I started adding back carbs.

  104. This is Great! Just what I needed! A Way To Begin. I was getting overwhelmed with all the information about Keto I didn’t know if I should count fat, protein, and carbs in each meal or for the entire day.It started to get confusing — so thanks for this video! Much appreciated.

  105. I downloaded this video to watch later, watched it immediately, found your other videos, binged that… point is, I’m obsessed with ya’ll and the keto life! Thanks for your knowledge and great personalities!

  106. One thing i might have added to starter comments. Don’t forget chicken broth, salt or pickle juice to boost electrolytes at the beginning, So many folks will be programmed to do ‘low salt’ and if they are not aware they must reverse that on keto, they can create a problem…

  107. If ur fur babies happen to make an appearance don’t ignore them or push them away, let them stay in the video. Way to many of us are animal lovers and love seeing them interact with u. Loved that sneak peek of ur dog also, so cute.

  108. Every dietary effort requires “CALORIC REDUCTION.” Calorie reduction is always mandatory. If you eat more calories than you burn you will stay fat.

  109. Just came across your channel on Diet Doctor. Can’t wait to catch up on all your YouTube and blog info. I love that you two keep it light with no should-ing on yourself but get out lots of good info for beginning. That’s the way to step into a new practice!

  110. The best “snack” I found when cutting carbs is fried pork rinds , chicharrones , an entire bag has zero carbs . back in the late ’70’s I went from a 40 waist to a 31 in less then 6 months . Also a slice of clean deli ham rolled up with a slice of cheese , you can even use a mayo dip, no carbs . add a dill spear and you are netting zero . Since most folks get fat on soft drinks lay in a case of lemon lime seltzer , If you must ,use diet drinks but that stuff might kill you quicker then being fat but at least your corpse will look good .

  111. Hey your videos are very helpful. I am wondering if I can juice cucumbers, celery, kale, spinach, etc daily and get into ketosis? Our Lyme Dr. put us on a keto diet to kill off the lyme disease but Im afraid to stop juicing, as juicing has worked as a wonderful constipation remedy for me. Thank you in advance for any help.

  112. Just started the keto lifestyle.. finished day 3 today. So happy I found your channel! I have watched three of your videos so far, and I’m so thankful for this one! It really cleared a lot up for me!

  113. Can you guys do a Video on how to use / maximize the KetoDiet App. For some reason it doesn’t seem user friendly. or What would be the best app to use??

  114. Can you be vegetarian and eat keto?
    I’ve tried regular keto, but felt weird about eating so much animal products. Keto more or less made me vegeterian 😅 but keto is the only thing that works for me and my body. But I would like to eat less meat and eggs..

  115. Thank you! I’m trying to get started on Keto, I’m hungry a LOT!
    I get sick of salads and some veggies, of course I’m craving starches, potatoes, bread, rice etc. but not caving in to them.
    I really don’t think eating so much meat is good either so should I supplement with protein powder in a low carb smoothie? Help

  116. keto diet is the best, i lost heaps of weight on this diet. I bought Keto coffee which helped me lose extreme weight! and i am still astounded of how much i lost! omg keto coffee taste so good. You only can buy it here online, which is super quick

  117. How are you supposed to cheat calorie based (not carb based), if you can only do so by eating more protein, wich in turn turns to glucose.

  118. Is this diet safe for ppl with really high blood pressure? I’m a little worried about the amount of sodium. I was just hospitalized for 5 days because of my bp being so high.

  119. hi, great video. Just wondering if you have any other recommendations for the magnesium supplement as i cant seem to find the one you recommend here in the uk. Thank you.

  120. such great info, thanks your guys. I love the part about controlling the carb grams without counting calories or anything else to begin. can’t wait to get my steem approval, looks like a very cool platform….

  121. Ugh! I’ve been eating keto for 2 weeks and haven’t lost anything!! I wasn’t counting calories (just carbs, 20 grams) so I’m assuming for me, I need to also count my calories. I’ve done low carb before and have lost 25 lbs, but for some reason this time around, my body isn’t responding 😢😩😭


  123. I love the piece of advice you give about getting better and better at it each day. I think so many times people start out full throttle a few days and when they mess up, (don’t get it exactly right) they give up. Excellent video. You’re helping me get ready for this.

  124. “Compare yourself to yesterday.” That’s a beautiful thing. I cheated so hard today…but that’s okay, I ‘m going to slay tomorrow.

  125. What about slow-carb diet and especially refeeding carbs/cheat day in once at week, as Tim Ferriss is describing it in his book? – as te way for the people who beggins to change theire eating habits..
    Would be nice for people who are carb dependent to mention the role of potassium in storing the glicogen, as deficiency of it may be the cause of sugar cravings..

  126. Would the high fat aspect of this be bad for a heart patient on heart meds, or would this benefit them? Worried about Cholesterol and atherosclerosis.

  127. I started Keto 3 days ago! I’m surprised at how good I feel already 😃 This morning I felt super energetic and calm at the same time. No more energy spikes followed by sugar crushes ! I’m super excited!

    My only issue so far is eating enough fat without “forcing it”

  128. I watched the “Bulletproof Coffee” and after a week I tried it today. Well that was the best cup of coffee I’ve had taste wise. Then I could feel the energy hours later today, that was a total surprise. I made the coffee, added about 1 table spoon butter & MCT oil, some heavy cream and 2 packet of Truvia, I had one of the spinners to mix it. WOW Thanks Matt and Magha

  129. My mother is really worried about me starting this diet. She is still used to the balanced carb diets and thinks that all the fat from a keto diet will fuck up my liver. We live in a country where nobody talks about the keto diet and I feel like I’m the only one who “knows the truth” about fat. It fucking sucks. My mom and I plan to go see a dietician but I’m not sure they will know what I’m talking about. Any opinions?

  130. Thank you I love you guys! I’m Day 4 of Keto and I feel like a million 2 was rough but felt 100% better after upping my electrolytes. Thank thank you for all you guys do!!

  131. I wish I liked coffee to have the bullet proof coffee. I have been eating pork rings to have that need to munch and get in fat to feel full.

  132. I was wondering if I could ask a question. I have researched a lot about the keto diet, and I’ve been trying it out for the past few days. I really like it. I’m not the healthiest (at all—in fact I’m overweight, but I am doing my best to eat primarily fruits and vegetables now) but even if I don’t meet the macros for the carbohydrates, could I still continue fasting and will that be okay? Because I’ve found that fasting towards the evening really has helped me prevent overeating and feel lighter in general (as opposed to sluggish). I’ve read and watched other sources that say fasting like this (for women) creates hormone problems and even insulin problems. But despite trying the 16/8 fast for 5 days, I have not experienced any hunger pains or difficulties in following the diet. Which leads me to believe that maybe my body is okay with this mode despite the warnings against fasting? If anyone can offer any opinions or any other articles to read/videos to watch, that would be really appreciated! Thanks!

  133. I have no idea how to count carbs, or proteins or any other food facet. How do I do Keto without tracking anything? It is about food not dietary material or molecules or calories – it’s all too abstract. I don’t crave these things. My mind thinks in foods.

  134. I know the best thing is to eat grass fed, but there is no grass fed beef in my town. I would have to go an hour away to find grass fed. I know the beef in the stores have hormons in it. How bad is it to eat non-grass fed beef on the keto diet?

  135. I entered my Macros into the app “DietMaster 2100” which helps me track what I’m eating plus my weight and body measurements.

  136. Great advice. I’m starting the 50 day meal prep. Meal #10 tomorrow. I can’t wait to watch the other 3 videos for beginners. Love your podcast too! I have learned lots from you both. Thank you

  137. I’m trying to increase my caloric intake desperately. I had been struggling to eat 1000 calories because of an eating disorder 6 years ago. I’m now 18 and still trying to reach 1200, I want to look into Keto as a slow process of slimming up but I’m having trouble even reaching 900 calories with all the fats. Should I just focus on bringing up calories in general before trying Keto?

  138. Starting keto today, and just want so say your videos have been extremely helpful in reassuring me and getting me into the right mind set. Can’t wait to check out more as I go. Thanks M&M!

  139. Hello new sub here you guys explained the keto so simple thank you so much I,m currently fasting 8/16 I only eat 2 meals a day 12 n. And 8p is my last meal so I will try this diet sounds

  140. Awesome video!  Can you do a video about how to do keto as a vegetarian? I’d love to start but I’m discouraged by the heavy amounts of meat keto seems to require.

  141. Thank you for this wonderful video. I have been researching Keto for a while now. Today is my first day on a keto diet. I am optimistic. But I must say, being 52 years old, this way of eating goes against everything I have been trained about weight loss and energy. I am optimistic. Thanks again!!

  142. Hello from Tennessee! I’m new to keto and just want to let you guys know that you are the ones who motivated me to pursue a keto lifestyle, after nearly two years of reading up on it and watching keto videos whilst simultaneously eating a big bag of potato chips, I’ve finally decided to try out this diet. The number one tip from you guys in all your videos, even though I’ve taken quite a few into consideration, is probably to think long term. I started researching this diet to lose weight. I lost nearly 40 lbs in 6 months on a low calorie diet just to gain it all back within 6 months of
    eating “normally.” I’m trying now to focus on how I feel rather than the number on the scale and hope keto will work out in the long run.

  143. This is really helpful! You both are very articulate and the video was really informative. You both seem to be very naturally charismatic and comfortable in front of the camera. Great work, looking forward to seeing more inspiring content on your youtube channel and website!

  144. Liked the video. I’m actually just doing some research now on keto. Thinking of starting in a month although last week I just started dumping carbs as I know they are bad for you Period. Sure enough 2 days later I was 2 eye n cokes in to it and totally hit me. Easiest drunk in years. Anyways liked the video looking forward to watching #2. We will see how next month goes and than next half year and the future.

  145. I wanted to do my first video Jan 1st 2017 but I am the best procrastinator in the world so I aimed for everyday after that (haha) until I decided to put it off until Jan 1st 2018… which still didn’t happen. Was waiting for a round day but settled on being imperfect and finally got a video up last week. SO GOOD TO SEE at least someone got a new start on New Years Day! I just found this video today and can’t wait to watch ALL your videos!

  146. I do really well with regimen.  So, to that end, is there a short-list of foods/meals that you would suggest?  Example: Veggie Omelet for Bfast with bacon, Sausages and Bullet Coffee for Lunch, and so on.  For me, the simpler the better.  I could eat the same meals every day for a month and be very happy (during that month I would slowly experiment with new meals).  Thoughts?

  147. Thank you so much! This was the clearest explanation I’ve seen yet! I was/am confused about the macros bit. thankfully I have a friend that has been going Keto for about a year and has lost 100LBS. Wow! When I saw him I was like what happened to you?? Both of us have been lifetime dieters w/o the results. So, he told me to try this. I’ve been “trying” for 2 weeks now and have lost about 6lbs. That’s encouraging, but I’d like to understand more. My friend also told me to count the carbs and keep them under 20. Here you’re saying the same thing plus so much more! Thank you, thank you. Also, love the cat and the nose of the dog! Great video, I’ll be watching more. Thanks, Gayle

  148. Just started the Keto diet and I am so confused! I was told to stay under 25g net carbs. I also have a hard time reaching my recommend grams of fat and protein.

  149. Check out Cole Robinson and the Snake Diet – amazing results for low carb folks….165lbs lost in 10 months…. #SnakeDietWizard

  150. Why would cheese be in the optional category when the macros line up so well? Cheddar cheese is like 9g fat, 7g protein, and .4g carb.

  151. I just started yesterday to help my diabetes. My problem is I don’t eat red meat, steaks, hamburger, roasts, etc. Don’t eat sausage, pork or ham either. I will eat fish,chicken, turkey and the following (sort-of) meats: hot dogs, bacon,baloney, pepperoni. I do love eggs, cottage cheese and cheeses. Do you thing the ones I like would be enough for protein and fats?

  152. Great video! Everything was explained so well, except I’m still trying to figure out what macros are and how do you count them?

  153. I am so confused. You have this video the Ultimate Guide, then Keto for Beginners and Ketogenic Diet-Everything you need to know. WHICH one is the best to start with? Also I can’t stomach eggs every day for breakfast what can I do?

  154. I have PCOS and insulin resistant and am thinking this diet is right for me. I am so worried I am not going to do it.

  155. If you have any sugar will you not go into or will you get kicked out of keto? I’m getting a couple of grams a day but am staying under 20 net carbs. I love Raw Rev Glo bars (creamy peanut butter and sea salt flavor) because they help me get more protein, have just 3 net carbs, & are tasty but they also have 2 grams of sugar. I’m wondering if I need to stop eating them. Thanks for any help you can give me! 😁

  156. Great People !!! Good Videos that are always explained well and i am new and able to understand. Thanks guys

    But where is the link to the Macro Calculator?

  157. Keto not enough good fats. In the north hills above tribal Magazeenstan we have back doctor (PBUH) and he is also farmer of the goats, and he say we must be fat to please Allah. My ex husband, who divorces me for staying out with his brother once (but we only ate hummus no cheese of goat XD), says I please Allah very very much. Ha. But really it is ok to be fat, heart disease is the lie of the infidel.

  158. I went to my Dr. And my A1C was at goal or normal he wants me to go on a diet that included 6 starches. Well as you can imagine my blood sugar was high after I followed his diet. I now am going back to Keto after 2 days on the doctor’s diet. My only problem with Keto is that I have not lost very much weight. Any suggestions for more weight loss to keep the doctor and me happy.

  159. Just wanted to say that I signed up for Steemit and will be following you there in addition to the other social media spaces. I follow a couple of YouTubers religiously (you guys being in the top 5) and I hate that YouTube is making it hard for you to make money. We need people like you to build community and if YouTube is killing incentive then why would you work harder to produce content? Here’s hoping they approve me quickly on Steemit. Thank you for everything you do!

  160. Love your channel…I’m new can I eat my carbs in one meal…example I had 16 carbs eating broccoli got full so didn’t eat anything else for that meal…or should I divide in two meals…thanks

  161. Your videos are very helpful. I’ve lost 28 pounds with keto.
    Here is a perfect poached egg recipe:

    I like to add butter, salt and pepper, and nutritional yeast to the cooked egg.

  162. With the sodium I am concerned cause I have blood pressure issues…not currently on meds but I’m just wondering how to do keto diet but not run my blood pressure up

  163. Interestingly fitting how the acronym for “standard American diet” is SAD. Keto makes me feel better than I ever have, and makes starting weight loss so much easier. Thanks for helping us out!!!

  164. <3 I will call you piano man. You have Piano fingers, cause they are so long and you kept moving them like you really should be playing while talking. ;) The key to connect with the piano man lol. Ooo a challenge

  165. I’m allergic to coconut and a lot of the recipes I’ve found want you to use either coconut oil or shredded coconut. Do you have any recommendations for substitutions?

  166. I am working out focusing on body building for last 5 years. Now beginning Keto to cut..what do you use as a Pre-work out supplement.

  167. What about coffee from Starbucks? I don’t drink coffee every day any more but from time to time I do crave some.

  168. Your videos have helped me start Keto! I even felt motivated to make videos testing out recipes and to keep myself accountable! Thank you for all the info!

  169. I just started my Keto life 3 days ago. I’m already down 6 lbs and I’m loving it. Love ya’lls channel!

  170. You guys are soooo cute and funny. The info is great. Almost all my meals are cooked at home. I’m going through pounds of butter every week.It’s so fun. One thing I don’t do is tell anybody I’m doing kept. Saves me from having to explain everything to them.

  171. Out of all the keto videos I’ve watched, you guys are my favorites! Starting Keto on Tuesday because I want my doctor’s approval. I have an appointment with her tomorrow. (Monday) Wish me luck!

  172. I like when you said sugar addiction, carb addiction. It hit home. I didn’t like sugar and sugary things but the bread and other things my body turned into sugar, there was definitely a problem. I’ve slacked off recently, thank you for getting me turned around.

  173. I’m super stressed out about what I should be eating on the keto diet. I’m afraid of not getting enough fat or protein in and im just totally stressing myself out over this. Im hoping watching your youtube videos will help me out!

  174. Thanks guys!! My best friend and I started the keto plan this week and five days in I am down five pounds. She came across you guys today and recommended it on our private FB page we started for our girlfriends. I’m so glad she did……this is great to be able to pass along to all the newbies with questions! Thanks and cheers to a very healthy (and skinny) 2018!

  175. I’m very confused… i wiegh 333 and ive used the macro calculator and says i need 42g per day of carbs, but you say it needs to be less than 20… What do i do??? my diet will consist of 42g of carbs, 64g of protien, and 141g of fat is this realistic?? Am i doing this wrong? Ive done a lot of research and wanna start soon but don’t wanna mess up!! Please help!

  176. You guys.. I had a little bit of meltdown today, I came out of the dentist and felt really crap so bought a chocolate bar and some bread… threw half of it out but have to confess!!!Still struggling to know how to figure out if I’m on ketosis.. been fasting as well… anyways I love love your channel! Do you know of any Irish Youtuber who’s doing keto? Thanks again guys!Much love from Ireland

  177. Gahhh you sweeties, I’ve fallen off since Thanksgiving AND mybkiddo has been hospitalized 2x in the last month….I’ve seriously gained 5 lbs in less than 2months….I feel horrible! I don’t wanna go through the damn flu like symptoms, but y’all have helped me so much in the last 6 months! Ok, I’ve got this! One day at a time! Keep it up you two!🙌💞

  178. I love this. Thanks for all you do. Even though I am a Buckeye and despise all your Michigan gear. 😂 I find this all very helpful and informative. Again thanks for all you do. 👍

  179. With this, I lost my trust in the ketoconnect: if you put meats first (even fatty ones), then you guys are doing a sort-of- Atkins. Protein should be only 15% or so of the total calories. Maybe that’s why you were not feeling great, not because of too many carbs, but too much protein. This also explains why there is protein powder in some of your recipes. There should not be any, really.

  180. A diet that recommends Cream, bacon, steak, wings, eggs, and butter but limits fruits, whole grains, and beans? This literally goes against any piece of verified scientific literature on nutrition.

  181. Hey! Been “kinda” doing Keto all Fall. Hubs and I are planning to go full on Keto this year!
    Glad to find your site — checking it out and subscribed. Later M

  182. Love your videos! I have been doing Keto to no carb, on and off for 20 years and you gave very good advice. I have hit every one of your key points for newbies in the past! Even now, I do these very same induction techniques, your talking about when I have for what ever reason “fallen off the wagon” (Lol) Very good guys!

  183. So glad I found you guys! I’m a few weeks into my Keto journey and there’s definitely already been obstacles! I started with some fasting before then and now I’m working on a sort of union between that and Keto. You guys are putting out awesome content and help to clear up plenty of worries that I seem to gather along the way. I don’t have anyone close to me doing anything near this type of lifestyle so I appreciate having you two as an informed outlet. Keep it up! Also, Happy New Year! I started a few of those habit sheets and I have high hopes 😃

  184. I’m on day two , with keto flu. Am very scared I had to much of your buttered chicken, may be to much protein ! Hope not I really want this to work

  185. I just want to tell you both that the advice you guys give has been helping me SO MUCH MORE than the research I have done and what not. Not going to lie..the videos and recipes you both are number 1 for me! I have been slowly transitioning into this diet. Now usually I completely suck at diets and am miserable by the end of the first month, that is not the case at all with this one. I keep wanting to learn more, I feel 100x better, and my food addictions have almost come to a full halt (I think of the bad stuff, then turn my thinking around and think “I bet there is a keto recipe out there!)

  186. Side note about salt. In The Keto Guidebook Martina Johansson talks about the right sodium. Table salt is not the right salt. She explains why. Sea salt is the best according to her sources. Maybe you guys can do a collaboration with Martina Johansson!?!?

  187. I like the video. I need this simple easy instructions and tips. I am going to start the Keto plan. Thank You

  188. Starting my Keto today. My daughter and granddaughter have been doing it and my daughter has been helping me get started. Looking forward to a new year and a new me!! Thanks for your help.

  189. I have a question please..
    I’ve been on keto for a month and lost 17 pounds and it really motivated me to keep going…
    But a week ago I kinda didn’t know I had cheese which had some grams of sugar in it and I didn’t know also I put splenda sugar in my coffee which had sucrose and dextrose in it and I didn’t know…😢
    Will this effect my ketosis state? And what to do in this case?

  190. All I have to say is. Thank you. Thank you for taking the time to educate me. I am starting tomorrow. I am very excited.

  191. So glad you made this video! My SIL is starting and just sending this video to her is much easier than trying to explain everything! So thank you, thank you!

  192. Can someone explain how Megha is so pretty? Real question. … Okay, just kidding, but no really — love the hair color (don’t kill me Matt)!

    2017 wasn’t such a great year for me. I tried keto off and on a few times and it never really took root for me. I’m not a huge meat eater, really only like chicken breast, chicken wings, ground beef (or buffalo) and most sausages. I need to get my discipline back though. Back in 2013’ish I had lost over 100 lbs via a combination of strength training and a very keto style diet. I need to refind the focus I had back then and forge a better path for my health this year.

    Thank you both for all your inspiration and all the knowledge you share. It is very much appreciated by those of us struggling with health and weight related issues day to day. <3 you both.

  193. What do you get when you go to buffalo wild wings? you said wings but the snack size wings (boneless) has like 53 carbs in it

  194. so I was excited to hear that I might be able to eat at buffalo wild wings when I heard you mention it, but when I pulled up the website, the boneless wings snack size has 54 carbs and the small has 82?! without sauce? so I would love you to explain more!!

  195. About Keto Connect, I just love you guys. Always, relevant, accurate information. Also it must be said that you two have a very real and clear feeling for humans in general. You guys are so intuitive with your honest cautions and personal experiences. You say the things I would ask. Does that make sense? Anyway, I’m hooked on you two sweet people. VK

  196. I’ve been half-heartily trying to do the keto diet, but I am going to be focused this time. Been following you for a few months. Love your messages.

  197. I have been trying Keto but its so hard for me to stick to it. I crave carbs so bad. Like salty stuff. Pretzels, veg sticks, chex mix. Ice cream, yogurt. What am I gonna do. I think the only solution is to move in with you two. Right? Thanks for the videos vk

  198. I started the Keto diet for the first time last year. I love it. I may do 3 months at a time, get off then back on. Well I am back on and I have stopped eating red meat for the past 6 months (I do eat pork). If I decide not to eat red meats anymore, can I still get my fat in everyday?

  199. Hi I have a question. I’ve just completed day 1 on keto and used my fitness pal. Hit 119g fat, 78g protein and 22g carbs. Does my fitness pal count net carbs or total carbs?

  200. Hi megha and Matt, your videos are so good!! and I love ll the recipes too!! About the electrolytes, what do you think about “sole water”? Is it a good option for replacing the

  201. Olives and pickles! Great for killing cravings and adding sodium when needed. BTW…your keto butter chicken ROCKS MY WORLD 😍

  202. GOOD morning from beautiful Tucson Arizona!! Thank you for your channel. I’ve lost 45 lbs on keto 5 more to goal weight, this year stepping up my fitness by trying new exercises along with the tried and true.

  203. You guys are awesome!! Been off Keto since after Thanksgiving starting back up today 😳with 3 Family members!! Gotta do it!! Following your series will help!! Happy New Year, thanks for all you do!!

  204. Down 140lbs since March. Been watching you guys in addition to a few other channels. I also do a pretty extreme version of intermittent fasting, typically one meal a day. Average day of eating 1700-2000 calories in one meal. This is just what works for my lifestyle. My question is, am I doing more harm then good? Eating too much protein at once? Example meal would be a pound of 80/20 ground beef 4 slices of american cheese (4 burgers), 2 cups of cauliflower with 2 tbsp of butter and a little sour cream. I like to keep my meals pretty simple usually a meat and vegetable.. been on a cruciferous veggie kick. And if I need more calories I usually finish off with a serving or two of almonds. Thanks for the videos, especially ones like the sweetener video.. that’s really good info.

  205. This couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m starting keto tomorrow with my mom. We weighed in and took our measurements and a before picture today. I’m so excited ! I’ve been watching your videos for a few months while getting prepared. Thanks so much for the inspiration! ❤❤❤

  206. I did keto for 4 months and went from a L size to a S size and 34 pants to 30 pants. Never felt better. Loved all the compliments. However last two months have fallen off keto but still have maintained my new weight. Now ready to jump back into it full fledged again. Thank you Dr Berg, thank you Dr Fung and thank you to you guys for making me understand this biologically and thank you for the success it has brought. For 20 years nothing worked but 4 months is all it took to reverse it.

  207. Awesome video! I just made a “getting started on keto” video mostly so I have something to send to my friends since I’ve gotten so many questions about it lately – and I want to go on record that I filmed it before watching this, but make a few of the same points you do 😂 (My videos publish on Wednesdays!) I also reference you guys in it ☺ Happy New Year!

  208. Man youtube is killing me with their demonetization. I think I’ll also upload/start a steemit account. Seems quite interesting.

  209. Megha those growls are worthy of being in a death metal song. I love how we’ve both done the same kind of video at the year beginning but they are so different and both are going to help people 🙂 Love you guys!! Lots of love and luck for 2018!! m/

  210. You guys are absolutely wonderful. I won’t divulge into my unhealthy habits or eating lifestyle….but I must say this video is very encouraging. I first stumbled on Keto in September, and I lost a nice 15 or so pounds, and I get a lot of sound advice from Dr. Berg. I bought his book but I’ve also been following you two, couple others, and you’re quite impeccable, informative people who make this process much easier, explaining things colloquially for the average mind. I have a lot of your videos to catch up on, but what I’ve seen so far — all I can say is thank you (especially that sugar one). KETO is the way and I can’t wait for most of the world to adapt to it (even myself in 2018 and beyond). Keep going guys!

  211. Great tips for us beginners who want to be successful on this new lifestyle. Thank you so much. I just started today, but am water fasting 48-hours to get into ketosis faster.

  212. I have been doing Keto for about a month…. and I have a handle on the basics. I don’t always hit my fat gram number, but I do usually hit the carb gram number which is important. My biggest struggle is that I am just a horrible cook… always have been… so even with a recipe it is a disaster. So stuck with basic meals for now. I haven’t given up on cooking. For 2018, I am giving up all drinks except water…. so no diet sodas, mios, etc. Hopefully I can stick with it.

  213. What do you guys think about testing with keto strips to see if you’re getting into ketosis as a beginner? Keto journey starts tomorrow! Woop!

  214. Hi ! Thanks for the video !
    If I take supplement fiber powder does it count for the net carbs calculation ? Do I have to take the fiber the same moment I eat carb or is it the average on the day ?
    Thank you so much !

  215. Great video, watched the whole thing. Only thing that bothered me was the auto white balance 😛

  216. Megha Mindset ✅
    Comeback Zingers ✅
    Under 20/10 net carbs ✅
    Eat fatty meat ✅
    Eat veggies ✅
    Snacks sound fun ✅

  217. Found your channel yesterday and spent all day thinking about how it would be a great new years resolution. Came home to this video lol. Thanks for all the info

  218. You two have such an awesome channel. I haven’t done keto since November 2016 but still watch all your videos. Your content is awesome.

  219. I don’t do keto anymore as I’m more focus on portion control, but I still love watching you two. Keep growing. (:

  220. wanted to let y’all know how thankful i am for your idea a few weeks back about making goals you can actually control. Liked it so much I am incorporating it in my new years goals in my journal and on my video. Thank you sooooo much!

  221. This video was so helpful thank you! I’ve been hard on myself for starting keto and maybe need to take it slow. Other videos have told me otherwise and just jump in but thank you for the recommendations and the tips to starting! Love your videos 💕

  222. Been off kept for 6 weeks and looking forward to picking it back up tomorrow, love watching you guys you are such a fantastic help…….Thanks guys keep it up

  223. Happy New Year to you both from NZ.  Hubby and I started  Keto in August last year and your videos were the first I came across in trying to  research it….your channel helped us get started….and we are Keto for life now.  Over the holidays we’ve had so many friends and family tell us how amazing we look  with our weight loss and though thats been awesome, for us whats been really stand out is 1. they way you feel, energy levels through the roof.  2,  how ‘hunger’ changed…we started intermittent fasting by default because we’re just not hungry like we used to, and we use to 6 meal a day people.  Keep up  the good work:-)

  224. O have been down with flu and no appetite. Was not sure what to eat and ended up with a bowl of tomato soup and a slice of toast (That tasted awesome) But that was my only meal each day.
    What is your advise during such situations

  225. You guys!! So last night my friend told me that I would get drunk faster since I’ve been on the keto lifestyle for a couple of months now. I thought she was bullshitting me. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DRUNK IN MY LIFE! That damn vodka. Today I’ve had the worst hangover ever. Never again! I’m glad you guys mentioned that information in the video though, so fellow ketoers know & are informed! ❤

  226. Dear Matt and Megha- Happy, healthy New Year from a grateful friend you’ve never met. You both are the bomb… fat bomb that is😉

  227. Awesome good info! I agree with you on the cheating, I have been on the keto way of life for three months and I was feeling pretty good then I decided that I could handle a cheat day. It’s been two weeks and I have just started losing again. I had to be so strict I was not enjoying life, so lesson learned. No more cheating until I’m in the maintenance phse of my life.

  228. I’m so grateful that I’ve stumbled across your channel today. You guys are SO informative compared to other videos regarding keto. Today’s my first day on keto and I’m looking forward to joining you on this journey! ❤️ SUBSCRIBED!

  229. Another great video. I’ve been meaning to check out steemit and kept forgetting. It’s awesome that you are now on it and the site/concept sounds cool.

  230. I started Keto today! And I have binge watched so many of your videos!! I have been stressing about getting my macros right this past week! Thank you for making this video and making me feel so much better about not getting everything single thing right in the beginning!! You guys are awesome!

  231. Hi guys, Thank you so much for starting the New Year with this video. My husband and I have been successful in the past with Keto and just started back today! Yay! My question is, do you think it is ok to use crushed pork rinds as a coating for chicken breasts, at this time? I have some I need to use up before I hit it with the chicken thighs. Also, what are your thoughts on mayo. Is that something we should wait to use? Thanks so much and Happy New Year!

  232. I have to thank y’all for introducing me to Jason Wittrock and all the other great guests on Keto for Normies. I only recently discovered your podcast through searching out the Primal Edge Health podcast (shoutout to Tristan). I eat alot of kale, broccoli, spinach, sourkraut, other greens si I don’t think I commonly get under 20g carbs (when adding in nuts, nutbutters, occasionally berries for my kale smoothy) plus the occasional half a sweet potatoe with dinner. I don’t think I’ve entered ketosis yet as a result, but I feel great so I’m not worried. For reference, I’m in very good shape and my focus is packing on 10-30lbs of muscle. The wheat, grain, corn, is totally gone. I’m undecided on soy. Fruit is VERY occasionally…mostly cuz i have some i bought that i dont want to throw away lol. But i’m eating less and less, like 1 serving every few days. Keep up the good content! I sent your keto tortilla recipe to my sister in Arizona after I scared her to death over refined carbs and GMO monsanto haha

  233. MyFitnessPal tip: There is a plugin that will have the site automatically calculate the net carbs. Have to install the Tampermonkey extension and then you can install the plugin. I love it! Its very handy.

  234. when you cook bacon are you only getting the total amount of fat from the label if you consume the rendered fat left over in the pan? same with sausage burgers; it seems that a lot of that counted dietary fat is being lost (to my charcoal grill) or left in a pan? Thanks!

  235. I am 67 year old woman with huge love for you guys! I have lost 40 lbs. in 6 most. and I refer people to you all the time. You helped me figure out how to make great recipes for subbing my addictions in the beginning. Now I keep it so simple and still love to watch you all cause you are just so darn cute! Blessings to you in 2018, Happy New Year! Excellent intro video! xoxoMarjorie

  236. Hello! do you guys have any information about the keto rash? i got it after a few weeks on keto but i still dont fully understand the reason, it would be really nice to have a video about that!

    thanks anyway from spain, really useful channel

  237. Eggs and bacon as well as home made chicken/veg. , Beef/veg. soups are a main stay for me. less than 5 months from 296 to 193 today. Unbelievably easy to accomplish and fasted blood glucose level dropped from 190 to 79-95. Never a cheat day and ketone levels have been between 4.0 and 5.2 the entire time! Happy,Healthy New Year to you and the Furry Four Leggers!

  238. Thanks so much! Starting in the morning. I used to do Atkins and starting again for a healthier lifestyle. Your videos really help.

  239. Watched both on STEEMIT but can’t give a like until they approve an account. Not sure how long that takes but I’ll keep checking back.

  240. For the new year I’m going to be changing my lifestyle to Keto. I’ve been watching every video I can about it and love all the information your videos have.

  241. These are great tips for people who have been doing Keto for a long period of time as well! I love the idea of doing calorie surplus cheats! I also think going a little “overboard”, in terms of your fat intake during the adaptation phase can be really helpful with sugar cravings too. Keep up the great work!

  242. Haven’t been on keto in 7 months. Im on day 3 of being back on and i feel like a fish out of water. Def. binge watching your vids and Dr Bergs and doing this steemit thing.

  243. Hi, Matt & Megha. Good video. I would like to know if you’ve ever thought about discussing the history of the Ketogenic Diet and it’s original use. While there is a plethora of YT videos and interviews and discussions by many other “You Tube People”… but you’re both extremely personable and quite frankly, I would want to listen to your side of things. You put a lot of effort into your videos…it’s obvious. I truly appreciate it. Perhaps you already have covered this information during your “podcasts” or in some videos I’ve not seen. ‘Just throwing that out there. I’ve been going through many medical issues and my oncologists (and their staff) have NEVER heard of this diet. It’s just really fun to see their reactions to how well I am healing and doing in comparison to their other patients they recommend the usual diet who are suffering from various health issues after major surgery, from lymphedema and cording to seromas. It’s fascinating material…

  244. Hi! I’m new to Keto and I’m super excited to start my journey. I have a question about electrolytes—I’m a mom, so I know when I have a sick child or even for my daughter who is a competitive softball player, I supplement their fluids with things like Pedialyte popsicles to keep them hydrated and boost their electrolytes. Could this be something I also use on for myself on a Keto diet to accomplish the same goal? It makes sense in my head hahaha Also, what are your thoughts on sports drinks like Powerade Zero? I know I have to watch the sugar content, but the research I’ve done seems to tell me that Powerade Zero specifically would be a great option. Thanks, y’all!

  245. I really want to do a keto diet but I also want to eat a lot less meat so it’s a bit discouraging when the first foods listed as “to eat” are all meats. Is keto vegetarian just not an option? Any resources or advice would be greatly appreciated!

  246. should have a warning, a lot of countries packaging shows net carbs for the carb entry so you do not do any of the subtracting fiber.This messes a lot of people up, as so few sites and videos point this out.

  247. Thanks so much for all the positive intent and passion you put into everything you do. It’s so fun to watch for your new content, always something new to learn. Do you have a video on how rouse your macro calculator? I think it would be helpful for newbies. When I started I found it confusing and ended up going somewhere else to figure that out. 😄

  248. Perfect timing! I lost 30 lb last year doing Keto, but I jumped off the wagon about 6 weeks ago. Starting back on it tomorrow after clearing my house and grocery shopping today. Thank you so much for your encouragement last year! I’m looking forward to 2018 and losing the 3 pounds I gained and up to another 50.😀🍗💃🏼🥓👊🍳❤

  249. My biggest problem is coffee ! I drink it black but I have a cup when I wake up and another around 3…horrible habit. 😒 Anywho is this setting me back and if so how bad?

  250. I officially am two weeks into keto and I feel so much lighter, less bloated, and feel more mentally stable. However, I haven’t really noticed a change in my weight yet, which I feel bummed about, but I am continuing on my journey regardless. Your blog and videos have really helped me get started, so thank you!!

  251. Hi. Love your channel!
    Ah…let people know right off the bat about the possibility of constipation and what they can do about it. If people don’t expect it, it can be a little upsetting. Just sayin’.

  252. Happy New Year ! Thank you so much ! I cannot afford to buy any books as I am on disability and have fixed income. I really want to start but just am so overwhelmed by all the different info on the internet.Very excited to get started. Thanks again.😁

  253. Happy that I’ve decided to go on this journey with the Keto diet! Cheers to the New Year and making yourself better!!!

  254. Thanks I need this information. I do need to track calories been on Keto 4 wks. and weight is not dropping much.

  255. Glad to hear you are sticking it to Youtube! It’s about time awesome channels like yours will finally get the money it deserves for helping out so many! Good advice in this. I happen to think that potassium is the most important mineral in a Keto diet because it rids the body of excess fluid, but other than that, this post is awesome! Been doing keto since late June 2017 and lost 40 lbs so far! I am about to graduate to a size 16 from 18 and it feels AMAZING!!! Going to check you out on Steemit!

  256. I just started keto today for 2018. I’ve been binge watching keto videos and you have been super helpful! I’m excited for it to help me feel better!

  257. I kinda understand why you didn’t directly say to cut sugar down to zero, because it is so dam hard to if you eat anything processed. But, I found that to be like the second pro tip right after lowering the carbs. Thanks so much for all the hard work you guys put into informing us and especially for the great eats that y’all share. May 2018 bring you guys peace and happiness. Cheers

  258. The great thing about calorie cheats on Keto is you realize how much you actually CAN’T eat. Your body is satisfied with small amounts of food. Go get yourself 30 wings; you’ll probably find you can only eat 10.

  259. This was awesome! Thanks for keeping it simple. This is a good review even for people doing Keto sometimes it feels like people make Keto hard, and even a bit confusing (especially for beginners). I appreciate the sound advice. Happy New Year!
