Dr. Sam Robbins Intermittent Fasting – Weight Loss, Get Fat & Get Diabetes Reply

Intermittent Fasting lose weight gain
belly fat and get type-2 diabetes
that was the title of a video that
someone asked me to comment on, so that’s
coming right up. I am Dr. Ekberg with Wellness For Life and if you’d like to
truly master health by understanding how
the body really works make sure that you
subscribe and hit that notification bell
so that you don’t miss anything. So one
of my viewers tipped me off to a video
and I watched it and was by a doctor (not sure he is a doctor)
called Sam Robbins and I looked at it
and felt compelled to comment on it
because there’s so many blatant mistakes
and erroneous rationalizations in there
so there’s a lot of interest in
intermittent fasting and I think that
people really need we need to get the
true message out there so first of all
intermittent fasting it’s just the
logical conclusion of a continuum of
carbohydrate consumption so what this is
all about it’s about insulin resistance
caused insulin resistance is responsible
it’s linked to just about every
degenerative disease that we have and
the standard American diet consisting of
three to four hundred grams of
carbohydrate drives up insulin
resistance and is the problem so in
improving health the most important
thing that we can do is to reduce
carbohydrates so low carb ketogenic
intermittent fasting leading to auto
Fujii in incremental steps here this is
what humans have done since for as long
as we’ve been around and this is what
your body is adapted to and this is the
natural way to stay healthy I’ll come
back to that a little bit so the first
complaint the first objection that he
had to intermittent fasting was that
it’s a sales pitch they say oh you can
eat anything you want you can eat all
your favorite foods as long as you do it
in a short window of feeding which is
what intermittent fasting is and of
course he called that a sales pitch as
if it was pitched by all those people
who stand to gain from you not eating of
course that’s ludicrous it no one stands
to gain anything if you don’t eat
there’s no money to be made there and
just because an idea is promoted by
someone ignorant if someone makes that
claim oh you can eat anything that’s
ignorant but just because it’s promoted
by something ignorant doesn’t make it a
bad idea it’s still a very very sound
principle and we just have to understand
you cannot eat anything you want you
have to eat real food you have to eat
food that nature made and not the stuff
that we have been mass producing and
processing and refining and nuking and
bleaching for the last 50 years that’s
not food it doesn’t sustain life so it’s
not gonna sustain life just because you
eat it in a shorter period of time
second thing was he brought up research
and he said there was some very
important recent research with damaging
conclusions and he said that the
subjects would lose weight and he showed
a picture of a of a man with a big belly
bursting at the shirt bursting at the
seams and that said that the subject
would lose weight but gained belly fat
and then the conclusion by the
researcher was that this was the first
study that showed that individuals could
get damaged they could get insulin
markers for insulin resistance they
could develop diabetes etc the problem
with this study was that it was
performed on rodents and even though
there’s some research we can maybe draw
some conclusions from certain pieces of
research like the function of a certain
receptor or something we cannot draw any
conclusions of nutrition across species
have you ever noticed how different
eat different things they are innately
designed to eat certain things so you
can’t feed a species a certain way and
draw conclusions for another species you
just can’t do that
that is completely invalid and that
makes that garbage science another
portion though that I want to bring up
separately is in that study they said
that intermittent fasting increased free
radicals true but then he called the
free radicals cancer-causing and he
called them age accelerating so the
thing that we need to understand about
free radicals and there’s a lot of
research in this area that free radicals
were without due cause they were given a
bad rap in the 1950s and we just jumped
on the bandwagon me included
until I learned about recent research
and we call the free radicals the bad
guys and we said that they were causing
all these diseases they were causing
oxidative damage and so on well recent
research shows that they are not the bad
they are signaling molecules they are
messengers that are part of a clean up
crew called autophagy your immune system
your lysosomes your macrophages your
white blood cells they release free
radicals as part of their immune defense
so the free radicals don’t cause the
problem they’re just like cholesterol
they show up on the crime scene because
they’re trying to help they’re part of
the good guys just like cholesterol is a
good guy free radicals are the good guys
and what they allow the body to do is a
toff adji which in recent research and
was awarded a Nobel price is shown to be
cancer preventing and anti aging so we
need to rethink this completely I know
this is a big bomb to drop for a lot of
people that we’ve been told so long that
free radicals are the bad guy
I should do a google search and there’s
page after page after page but if you
read some read some of those in between
the lines you’ll find that there’s some
good research showing you that it’s a
signaling molecule actually doing good
so I’ll do a separate video on that in
the very near future to talk about free
radicals and antioxidants what they
actually do then he went on to say that
intermittent fasting doesn’t really work
and I thought that was kind of humorous
and I just have to say sorry guys for
all those tens of thousands of you who
have lost the weight you feel better you
have more energy your blood work is
better your cholesterol is better your
A1c and your hormone levels are better
you’ve just been mistaken all along none
of that really happened because
intermittent fasting doesn’t really work
so of course this is nonsense the proof
is in the pudding but we have to look at
physiology first is this a natural thing
because if it’s natural then it can
sustain long-term health and if it works
for you it works for you as long as it’s
based on health not short-term results
and then he went goes on to say that
it’s a fad diet and all these fad diets
they always they seem to work for a
while etc well it’s not a fad diet
because it’s been around as long as
humans have been around how you
implement it is a matter of trial and
error so not one way of doing it is not
gonna work for everybody some people can
go a week some people want to do it in a
six hour feeding window or eight hour
feeding window and then stretch it and
change it the important part though is
that you work your way down the scale if
you are highly carbohydrate dependent
you will probably not do so well to
start fasting because your body isn’t
to get energy from the stores so work
your way down the scale gradually toward
low-carb into ketogenic and then you try
some intermittent fasting and you do it
gradually as well so if you want to
really talk fads then you want to talk
about the ultimate fads the things that
have only been around for a couple of
generations so how about pharmaceuticals
nutraceuticals and processed foods and
processed grains those are the fads
those are the things and how have they
stood the test of time well they have
just about killed humanity in the short
time that they’ve been around so
understand that it’s not a fad just
because people start talking about it
and get excited in recent times if the
principal if the physiology has been
around there it’s not a fad the stuff
that we do in in our modern lives
that’s the fad hope that this has been
helpful if you have if you see any other
videos that you like me to comment on

health it’s about mastering health by

works and the only way that we can get
people healthy is if we start

  1. Learn more about Intermittent Fasting and the Ketogenic diet https://youtu.be/-tBXnL2tJ-E?list=PLpTTF6wMDLR4vimf34xYUof-BJJNlhMZH

  2. My A1c went from 12 to 5.3, I lost 70 lbs on IF in 9 months. I did it vegan and low fat without hunger. Its not necessary to do keto to avoid hunger. You just do one meal a day and the hunger period is never experienced because you are sleeping.

    The intermittent fasting is key. Keto probably helps to get started. I have found IF is hard to start, but very easy to stick to.

  3. Hie doc I reached my weight goal was doing keto but I have a sunken face what can I eat to look healthy and not gain

  4. Very interesting… it's amazing how much information is out there that simply isn't true. Great job, very informative. Thank you for educating us! We subbed, hope you can see some of our stuff too 🙂

  5. Nice video, thank you for making this. I watched the video by “Dr” Robbins when it came out and also thought it was very misleading and counterproductive to what IF can do for people. I’ve been using IF for about nine months and it’s honestly changed/saved my life. 35 years old and down 50lbs, all my blood work has markably improved.

  6. Using an article of a presentation of a study which was neither published or peer reviewed is quite frankly shocking.
    If anybody read any of it, the rodents were fasted for one day, which is the equivalent to a 3-4 week fast in a human, hardly intermittent 😂. The lack of information in that presentation was alarming and utter garbage.
    Dr Sam robbins dropped out of medical school very early on, I think he replied to somebody, so it’s a bit cheeky calling yourself a doctor, especially pushing such bogus information. He mainly just pushes his products with the occasional piece of good information. He’s doesn’t understand fasting or the ketogenic diet, and how he portrays both is pretty shocking.

  7. "Dr" sam robbins isn't even the person you see in photos,it's just a handsome guy for marketing, he doesn't have any degree and it's a Brand jus to sell you subscription and products.
    Isn't it phishy that someone with almost 1M subs have 3 total photos online? Not even one photo with a friend or something.

  8. @Dr Sten Ekberg

    Hey, doc can somebody with Muscular Dystrophy do Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent fasting safely? Plz reply.

  9. Hi. I just watched the video that you spoke of from Dr. Sam Robbins and was totally confused as mostly what I've heard is that, IF is good for you.

    First off I like the way you speak and present your information in a very gentle and calm informative way.
    And the sarcasm you presented really made me laugh.

    So I've decided to subscribe to you and I don't do that very often. Dr. Eric Berg and Ken Berry MD are the only other two doctors I follow on YouTube and believe in. Thanks for clearing this misinformation up. I appreciate it.

  10. Well now I've wised up since posting my former comment. Dr. Sam Robbins is a fake/fraud, he doesn't even exist. Investigate if you don't believe me. The real reason for the person or company behind his YouTube videos are simply to direct the viewer to their website to sell a program or product.

  11. Hej Dr. Ekberg.
    My moms having problems with pancreas. I think it’s good for her intermittent fasting not as a diet but as the healthy eating. But she keeps telling me that she needs to eat frequently up to 8 times a day.
    I have tried intermittent fasting and I felt so good while I was doing it and many years after. Therefore I am trying to convince my mom to try it because I am sure it will benefits her.
    Thanks for your brilliant videos and you use your time to help others .

  12. You are wrong, he did face reveal. He is robotic doctor from the future or at least his CGI video is a telltale of this. /S I was subscribed too after one video that was actually not so bad, but after 2-3 more videos I saw it was fake and unsubscribed him. Later on I researched some of his videos and they were made by somebody who has superficial knowledge about medicine, but is not medical doctor. He gathers some information and use it, but many times gets it wrong. Also, person with 1.3 million subscribers will have hundreds of photos, videos of himself in it and not only his voice, face reveals etc. And not 3 freaking photos, and then robot in video as face reveal. But I guess ignorant people will follow hundreds of his videos and still stay as his subscriber and follow his ignorance further on. This tells us only that many of these people are bellow average intelligence while others are average and gullible.

  13. I don’t listen to or pay attention to all those negative people who clearly have no idea what they’re talking about. I just look at the results and the blood work.

  14. Dr. Sam Robbins video may have been very damaging to some people. Thank you for making this video and putting it straight. I have been doing intermittent fasting and keto for about nine months now. When I come across someone I haven’t seen in months, they swear I have had a facelift and cannot believe how young I look from the last time they saw me. I am a 67-year-old woman who has changed in weight and appearance by doing intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet. I wouldn’t live any other way. Never felt better. And I REVERSED my type 2 diabetes. My A1C went from 7.5 down to 5.4 in 3 months! My Dr couldn’t believe it. Anyway, thank you for putting that stupid information from Dr Robbins to test. I’ve seen his videos before and he gives out bad info just to sell supplements.

  15. Hey, thank you for this talk, I'm a bit surprised with the Low-Carb range of 60-80 g per day. Ideally, it should be lower than 20 g (classical Atkins' suggestion). Also, I would argue that IR is not really on the spectrum as you described, it's rather a different dimension of nutrition i.e. timing vs. quality.
    In addition – switching from SAD to keto shouldn't be too difficult even for someone who is carb-dependent, just takes several days in general, 2 weeks for the brain to completely switch.

    IF should be even easier – just skip breakfast and then lunch and you're good to go 🙂
    PS. Subbed

  16. Thanks for sharing Doc! Always enjoy your videos. I've already experienced amazing results and just been doing ketosis a month or so and IF for a week or two.

  17. i'd suggest a retitle: aka 'my take on:' to make it clearer why we should play this … or put REPLY in caps and up front [like tailoring an abstract]

  18. He's the same idiot who said in one of his videos if you don't eat anything for 3 days you will die lol. After he said that i take what he says with a grain of salt.

  19. How can I do intermittent fasting, when my glucose level is high every morning, higher if I skip breakfast and much, much higher (well over 200) if I skip lunch? I have type 2 diabetes and stopped eating carbs over 3 months ego. Any suggestions?

  20. The only person I have any faith in is Dr Sten Ekberg. He knows his subject and there is no pseudo science. IF is the way to go for long term health. Thank you for your professional and clear delivery on your video's

  21. After watching Dr. Robbins’ videos for a short time, I soon realized he employs a kind of bait and switch approach. And leads his viewers down the path to purchase his products. When I realized this ploy, I stopped tuning in. I believe he is self-serving and not a good and reliable physician. I would hope he comes to realize the error of his self first approach and experiences a change of hearth and enjoys the more satisfying fruit of putting others first, instead of his pockets!

  22. Dr Sam Robbins is a person that hard for me to trust. A lot youtuber call him out and until now 2019 no respond. From picture profile to all his video, people still questioning whether this person exist or not?

  23. I am retired physician , age 70, your knowledge of physiology and biochemistry is amazing, I wis I had this knowledge when I was working, however I do medical cams as a philanthropist in underdeveloped countries, if allowed I can pass this knowledge to medical offices who do physician work or medical degree. I been taking metformin fo man years and dosage been increased by my family doctor, however nice. PRACTISING AUTOPHGY and fasting, I been able to reverse my Type 2 diabetes.
    I come from India background and as a result, since birth , our diet is mainly grains based lentils , chapatis, rice, full carbohydrates, obviously a cheep source of food in India. Diabetes as you know is an epidemic in India, pleas Dr Sten Ekberg do a video on this topic. Every Indian I know is Type 2 diabetic.
    Dr D Mistry from UK and I also spend a lot of my time in India.

  24. What is the trend that enables the chiropractors to understand and tap into nutrition, and MD dont get it?? Can that be fixed??

  25. Hello Dr Stren,
    I’m Gabriela and I’m trying to understand diabetes. My mom is a diabetic and we have try to follow her doctor advice. Her sugar levels are normal.
    My mayor concern is that her legs and arms muscles are very thin?
    I came across your videos looking for answers. The videos have help me understand about diabetes but I’m not sure why is she losing muscle?
    How can I help her gain muscle to be and look healthy.

  26. That is new information to me that free radicals are signaling molecules that actually help the immune system.
