1. Accepting the wrong health advice as fact
Just because someone is a doctor doesn’t mean you should trust them blindly.

2. Depending on protein powder for protein
Protein powder is incomplete compared to animal protein. It doesn’t offer the vitamins and minerals needed to stay healthy.

3. Treating symptoms and ignoring the cause
This is the main problem with the medical system. Healthcare practitioners prescribe medication to fix a problem instead of addressing the root cause. This is especially problematic when treating chronic disease because if you get off of the medication, the problem does not go away.

4. Focusing on salt reduction to reduce high blood pressure
Instead of focusing on salt reduction, which will cause weakness and other problems, focus on increasing potassium. Potassium keeps your arteries healthy and flexible.

5. Choosing unsaturated fats over saturated fats
Unsaturated fats like seed oils are highly refined and are in almost every ultra-processed food. Avoid them!

6. Avoiding red meat
Humans have been eating red meat throughout history. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals and should be included in a healthy diet.

7. Only reading nutrition labels
Nutrition facts can be confusing and misleading. You have to read the ingredients! Look for sugar, hidden sugars, seed oils, and starches. Starches are worse on your blood sugar than actual sugar. Many products that contain starches have 0 sugars listed in the nutrition facts.

Dr. Eric Berg received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1988. His use of “doctor” or “Dr.” in relation to himself solely refers to that degree. Dr. Berg is a licensed chiropractor in Virginia, California, and Louisiana, but he no longer practices chiropractic in any state and does not see patients, so he can focus on educating people as a full-time activity, yet he maintains an active license. This video is for general informational purposes only. It should not be used to self-diagnose, and it is not a substitute for a medical exam, cure, treatment, diagnosis, prescription, or recommendation. It does not create a doctor-patient relationship between Dr. Berg and you. You should not make any change in your health regimen or diet before first consulting a physician and obtaining a medical exam, diagnosis, and recommendation. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

    My doctor told me if i remained on this Keto diet i would have a heart attack in a few years even though i had lost 140 lbs.

      You probably misunderstood the doctor:
      If your doctor would lose more customers because they remained on keto diet, HE would have a heart attack

      Your doctor is telling the truth. Doesnt matter how much weight you lose. You still can’t live off keto alone.

    Being higher allergic to chemicals, I have researched and studied natural remedies for the past 25 years. It’s a never ending process but if you are in tune with your body you will know what it needs. The only time I would trust a doctor who doesn’t know my body other than text book knowledge, would be maybe if I broke my arm.😊 and that’s a big maybe.

    • @Ishta318 says:

      I am also higher allergic to chemicals and medications, so I always follow doctor Berg’s advice on natural home remedies

  • @konekopawa9039 says:

    For me, eating and drinking before sleep is one of the worst mistakes. I can eat the same amount of food, but with the wrong timing, it turns a health restoring, fat burning sleep into an elevated blood sugar, frequent urination nightmare, which leads to low energy and poor food choice the next day. I consider sleep the natural way to fast. Take advantage of sleeping and the few hours before and after sleep, we can dry fast without much mental effort. Thanks Dr. Berg for all these great health lessons!

  • @patriciau6277 says:

    Boy, how many times have I heard that! The one that really got me was a medical person asking me what medications I was taking? When I said nothing just vitamins. With a smirk and a little pissed off he says “At your age how is that possible”?! What an arrogant jacka$$! I was pissed!

    • @GenericAccountVLR says:

      How dare you not be dependent on a bunch of prescriptions! 🙄 I totally agree; they don’t want to help us solve the root causes of they’re just pill pushers. For the most part.

      My moms doctors was pushing her to a bunch of cholesterol medication. When I told her that she will work on getting on a strict diet, she said “but she can die from the cholesterol”. Not even considering the diet and exercise option. Doctors are paid to prescribe as many medications as possible and for you to be on them forever, so we get even more sick and get even more medication.

      I would have considered that a complaint

  • @lunaenter4042 says:

    My brother and his wife trusted the doctor blindly, she got miscarriage 3 times. I pleaded them to change the murder doctor to acquaintance I trust. And surprisingly the 4th child born healthy.

    Dr. Berg you are very special. No one never explain these hidden carbs. I do not eat those stuffs. Long before I know they are bad for your health. People should be aware of what they are eating. I cannot thank you enough . Everyone should have an awareness of what we eat. Lots of love and good wishes to you.

  • @user-hb3or7zw8q says:

    We were lucky my husband’s doctor mentioned a low carb diet. We went on to find a few doctors who provide metabolic health care via telehealth. We selected one and haven’t looked back. Sometimes you have to pay for your care.

    Doctor’s do not typically update their knowledge on the latest research and best practices.
    That’s the biggest issue, especially with primary care physicians.
