    I was told by my doctor not to stick with the keto diet because it’s harmful. He said I should eat a diverse diet so I tried the Agoge diet and I’m starting noticing less stubborn belly fat really fast.

    Thank you so much that was very informative for me preparing for pediatrics exam 🙂

    The *Agoge diet* works best for losing fat. I tried the keto diet but it was just so difficult to follow and very abuseing on the body.

    I wanna try the ketogenic diet 🙂 thanks

  12. Golden Snoek on January 5, 2022 at 5:27 pm

    Keto is not worth it in my honest opinion. It is unhealthy and difficult to stick with. I recommend the Agoge diet because it is personalized and diverse and most importantly worked great for me.

  13. zylordaxen domael on January 5, 2022 at 5:27 pm

    In my opinion the *Agoge diet* is the best diet available, you lose fat fast and feel energetic.

  14. Riska Nafilah on January 5, 2022 at 5:29 pm

    The only diet that works for me is the Agoge diet ? All others were hard to adhere to and I felt horrible

  15. Alex Christopher on January 5, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    When you try to find the right medicine for epilepsy treatment and cure, it can feel like a shot in the dark. Prescribed medications have loads of terrible side effects and these medications are addictive because weaning it increases seizure frequency. This is the reason I recommend natural treatment. Dealing with seizure is not a hopeless situation; it can be cured through herbal medicine. My Aunt used HILTON ANTI-SEIZURE HERBAL MEDICINE and got her cured. Look it up, find the name and make an inquiry.

  16. Jillian Wyatt on January 5, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    I read a lot of good reviews on the internet about how exactly Okibetonic Secrets (search on google) can help you lost crazy amounts of weight. Has any one tested out this popular weight loss system?

  17. Chayanne Lie Auxtero on January 5, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    Don’t get me started on the keto diet. that shit almost killed me… If you want to lose fat, get the Agoge diet imho, it worked great for me

    So I’ve been researching a lot on epilepsy since I have been diagnosed with it, but I don’t know if others go through nausea randomly like I do, and I’ve been trying to look for a video or anything informative about it but can’t seem to find it, so I’d really appreciate it if you would make a video on it as well.

  22. Bhadrinath 123 on January 5, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    It is not possible to stick with the keto diet long term and stay healthy. I tried it, and it was awful. I recommend the Agoge diet though, because it’s diverse and will help you get rid of fat without starving yourself.

  23. Julene Rivers on January 5, 2022 at 5:42 pm

    What do you think of lost a lot of weight using Okibetonic Secrets? I notice lots of people keep on talking about Okibetonic Secrets.

  24. jrel piper on January 5, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Keto should not be followed by healthy people, and there must be medical supervision. If you want to lose fat or cellulite then definitely try the Agoge diet, it worked wonders for me.

  25. H A on January 5, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Can you send the link how to follow the keto diet?

  26. Fortune Ugwu on January 5, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    I struggled with the keto diet too much, I just felt exhausted. We’re supposed to enjoy the food we eat and with keto that’s close to impossible. That’s why I tried the *Agoge diet* and it works great.

  27. Wesley Hinson on January 5, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    I’m so glad to share with you my experience on how I got rid of my Keto breath with dr.oyalo herb on channel. No more mouth or nose smell. I’m completely free. Thanks Doc

    Hi

  29. Adriana on January 5, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    My neurologist said this diet is only recommended if seizures have not responded to several different seizure medications! Check with your neurologist first !

  30. Lora Massegee on January 5, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    This would be great for most; if epilepsy it was their only problem. However, for people that have epilepsy and have also had kidney or liver transplants cannot. After having a kidney transplant you cannot go on a keto diet of any kind.

    Keto works but honestly I felt like shit from the start. Then I tried the *Agoge diet* plan and it also worked, but I did not feel bad at all, so I am sticking with the Agoge diet.

    My only regret is not trying the *Agoge diet* sooner, very great results. Keto really ruined me for a couple of weeks before that.

    People who use pharmaceuticals for seizure treatment have seen it is impossible to get a cure; these medications side effects lead to more health problems. The truth is that getting cured completely from seizure may sound absurd, but with HILTON natural medicine, right lifestyle and diet, there is a guaranteed complete healing. If those with seizures focus more on natural treatment, they will attain a cure. It is not a hopeless situation; it can be treated and cured completely. read reply for a follow up on direction….
