Good genetics can only reduce your risk. It can't prevent you from making stupid choices that result in physical deterioration.

Berg leans on KETO and IF too much and it’s not for everyone.

Agree. And that's why you need to find what works for you.

I cannot do keto. But that does not mean I cannot get rid of the habit of eating every 2 hours.

Counting calories, limit fat intake, eat more complex carbs, and a plant based diet. These methods doesn't help at all because of poor food labeling and generally nobody follows. Eat carbs regardless of what they are leads to weight gain plain and simple. Eat healthy fats like nuts, fish, butter, and EV olive oil is great for reducing weight. So I don't care if Dr. Berg is a chiropractor or not, his research and opinions have been great and he has a great following that tried his solutions and succeeded.

I generally find his opinions to be more honest than all other professional nutritionist that just tells people to limit caloric intake and eat more fruits and less meats.
People get fat because they eat too much for their daily activity needs.

I'm interested in low carb (not keto but don't mind hearing about it) and also IF but nothing extreme like the OMAD stuff. Mainly right now doing low carb, a very low-key IF (like 14:10) but not snacking between meals, and eating no added sugar. All this I just started 1-2 weeks ago.

Also looking for good podcasts.

Dr. Sten Ekberg has some good content, in my humble opinion.

But, as with everything else in this crazy world....Question EVERYTHING, and do your own research.

This is a result of insulin resistance. Frequent eating and people who insists on having multiple small meals, snacking, and then thinking going to the gym can take care of the extra eating.

I do not buy into everything anybody has to say. I will listen, then go to another source to get further perspective and info..........do that over and over again until I come to my own conclusion.

Berg has some information that is useful for me and some stuff that I do not really buy into.
His push to eat only organic, free-range animal-products, UGH, I am not rich and I do not think
it matters much, if any.

For me it's relatively simple and I'm in the process of preparing for a new thread to evaluate the Paleo diet. The author calls it a "stone age diet". Perhaps because he was stoned when he came up with the idea. It may look great to the average reader who's desperate to lose weight, but it's hopelessly flawed and risky long term.
