If you are like most, you have tried using diets to lose weight in the past. You may have even resorted to dangerous diet practices in order to lose weight fast. In this video, I’m going to show you the most dangerous diet in the world and help you to start looking towards nutrition plans that are much more conducive to long term health.

Each day, the most important decision you can make is the foods that you put in your body. As you likely have seen, when you put the wrong things in you can make yourself feel pretty ill pretty quickly. Imagine how powerful this gets when you extrapolate that out to days, weeks, months and years. If you want to be healthy and strong you need to start appreciating that power of diet and the nutrition you fuel your body with.

That said, many will resort to diets like Keto, Atkins, South Beach, IIFYM, Paleo and more as a way to get them to lose weight and body fat fast. The truth is, every one of these will likely work for allowing you to see results and perhaps even quickly. The problem comes in once you find out that the method of weight loss is not something that you can sustain for a lifetime. At this point, you likely will fall off the wagon and regain the weight only to be placed in a position once again of having to do it all over again.

This is not healthy. In fact, it is downright dangerous to your long term health. With each successive failure of a diet you are becoming more and more convinced that you do not have the will power to stick to a diet plan and that dieting isn’t for you. You either quit trying to lose weight all together or you get more desperate in your attempt to do so and less patient to let the process take place at a natural pace.

It is here that the situation becomes even worse. Why is it that people who are trying to lose weight think that they are going to instantly turn around everything that is wrong with their nutrition and suddenly start having the discipline to follow a restrictive diet. In the example of a ketogenic diet, you are going to have to get yourself to eat less than 10 percent of your daily caloric intake from carbohydrates. This is usually on the heels of coming off of an eating style that has you eating at least 60 or 70 percent of your calories from carbs.

There needs to be some sort of an on-ramp to the diet if you are going to find success with it. That said, it has nothing to do with whether or not you can actually follow this for the long term. Just because a diet is capable of allowing you to lose weight with it in the next few weeks it doesn’t mean that you will be able to follow it forever. To me, the only acceptable way to judge the effectiveness of a diet plan is by its longevity with the person using it.

If you are looking for a diet plan that takes eating and nutrition and makes it a lifestyle, head to and get the ATHLEAN-X Factor Meal Plan. This is not a one size fits all diet strategy, but it is one that is not based on deprivation or food elimination. You will be able to eat everything in moderation and start looking and feeling like an athlete within just weeks of starting it.

    About keto , it’s not the only way , it s just the easy way to loose weight and maintain the desired weight , the one bad thing is you loose a lot of power like 30/40 % , you will gain stamina though

  4. Ben Thair on August 23, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Not saying it’s right for everyone but I’m type 2 diabetic and have been on Keto for 5 years now. I had to ease into it though and there’s no way I could have jumped into it. It’s the only thing nutritionally or medicinally that’s helped me maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

  5. datsuntoyy on August 23, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    From what I hear, the "grapefruit diet" you don’t need to stick to After 2 days it’s cleaned you out and does little after that. Anybody out there tried that?

  6. Nour Ghafarji on August 23, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    {god wiling} that’s a person i can trust 100% you have my respect sir!

  7. Nathan Siegel on August 23, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    My personal training teacher was a nutritionist for 15 years prior to being a teacher. The average person’s diet should be 50% Carbs 20% Protein, 30% Fat with no more than 10% being from Saturated Fat.. Also a person should never go more than 4 hours without eating unless you don’t do any physical activity. The more meals you eat increases your metabolic rate.

    So a 3200 calorie diet 1600 calories are carbs, 960 calories are from fat, 640 calories are from protein. 400 grams of carbs, 106 grams of fat, 160 grams of protein. I eat 4 times a day. Each meal Crb100gms, Prt40gms, Ft26-27gms. I’ve ate at this ratio ( not always those calories) for the past 11 years and stay relatively the same weight. 195 when I was lean 227 now. I need to get back to exercising.

    Thanks jeff for useful video, I started cocaine and caffeine diet 1 month ago and I lost over 45 pounds now, it is a bit costy but you will never feel the hunger or need for food , great and energised all the time.

  9. William Mueller on August 23, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Cutting carbs is easier than cutting calories…and healthier.

  10. K.O.P. King of the Prints on August 23, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Based on the title I was ready to blast Jeff, but after watching the video I agree 100%. Its about lifestyle changes!

  11. Hussein Hammoud on August 23, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Jeff what the hell is that thing behind you to your left!? A straight leg raise machine!? 🤢🤮

  12. Dead_Kennedy on August 23, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    I’ve just stopped fast food, anything with sugar, bread and pasta, and force myself to eat veggies I like. Kinda a pseudo keto, so far not been too hard but only like three weeks in.

  13. Harald Hardrada on August 23, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I went from 276 lbs at “ 6 foot 1” to “206”lbs with the keto lifestyle I’ve kept my carbs for the most part vegetables! I eat a lot of high-quality grass-fed-grass finished beef,wild caught salmon,cod, halibut, cod liver oil,cans of sardines,mackerel,white anchovies. My cheese is mostly Goat and aged a minimum of three years.Coconut butter,coconut oil,olive oil,avocado oil,gee,raw unpasteurized butter,free range chicken,pasture raised eggs. I keep it very healthy but I don’t go into ketosis ( If I want to tap into that I can easily). I am back in the gym now to get cut and form some muscle mass not looking to get bulked just physically fit and yes this will be a lifelong journey.

  14. ScorpionWarlock on August 23, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    meat makes me happy… especially dry smoked meat…

  15. Lukecage83 on August 23, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Way to make me feel like an asshole, Jeff. I sure the fuck went with option A lol

  16. farzad torabli on August 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    lol been doing zone diet and just found out i was doing it xd

  17. datsuntoyy on August 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    6:40 It can be done if you’re motivated enough. I went from a high carb diet to a 48 hour fast then keto in 48 hours. This was months ago. If you want it enough and/or had a good enough reason it is logical. In my case all it took was diabetes and a stroke

  18. Anon Sidious on August 23, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Brilliant video.

  19. David Roberts on August 23, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I have no problem with healthy keto. I have always had a problem with "eating in moderation". Do what works for you I guess.

  20. Amar Deva on August 23, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Thanks for sharing this.

  21. Eve Lesov on August 23, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    you are an amazing human being. thank you!

  22. tshrake60 on August 23, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    I did months of research on keto before I got into it and I’ve been doing it for over 2 months and I feel better than I ever have and I have excess energy all the time and no cravings. I agree that you should start slow so that you don’t hurt your metabolism or endocrine system. But I think most of this has to do with mindset. With research and the right motivation I think it’s completely attainable. And it doesn’t require a gym membership. Do the research on the real benefits besides weight loss. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

  23. Nick James on August 23, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    just go keto and IF
    it’s not just the weight loss
    it’s the increased cognitive function, mood stabilization and strengthened immune system
    it takes about 3-4 days to stop feeling hungry
    eat more veges, coconut oil and avocado to help
    you will lose a shitload of weight quickly
    and you will still be able to build muscle
    you won’t look back

  24. GIGAMSX1974 on August 23, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    100% correct this is how i did it to lose 110lbs i am 46 years old i was 286lbs at 5 feet 9 inches with problems
    started by cutting carbs after 6pm
    then i cut down to 50g carbs a day breakfast and lunch at this point i had only lost 68lbs
    then 20g carbs, i woke up one day and went almost all day before realizing i have had no carbs all day
    now i eat 2 meals a day with 6 to 8 hours gap and maintained my weight for the last 2 years now

    start slow and make it a life style

  25. Jessica M on August 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Thank you for this. After struggling with gaining and losing weight for tears, this has made me rethink my strategy.

  26. Sanjo on August 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I dont think Intermittent fasting is long term ! But ima try ma best !

  27. Prakash P on August 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Don’t exercise to get healthy. Get healthy to exercise.

  28. Alexa Michelle on August 23, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    The no dinner diet is the only lifestyle I can stick to.

  29. Fabius Maximus on August 23, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    What could go wrong eating around 60% fat all day … no heart problems whatsoever 🙂

  30. Moj Shar on August 23, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Well, just because they can stick with it, it doesnt mean it’s good for you, right? I dont think that keto is really healthy and I see people really sticking to it for years…. so, there….

  31. Arctos on August 23, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    People on keto defend it like a damn religion.

  32. sand man on August 23, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Shoot, he said KETO! LOL…will see how this goes… Lost 30 lbs and kept it off for 3 years and it’s never been more stable in all my life but I feel I don”t have enough energy for weight lifting.

  33. WargaR on August 23, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    This video is really good. ReWildUniversity has a lot more videos about diet.

  34. craigzilla100 on August 23, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I’m not full keto perse, but I’ve mostly cut out sugars and all bread like carbs, including rice, and I feel so much better on a day to day basis. I used to have horrible brain fog, afternoon crash, and got really weak and shaky when I was hungry. I still consume carbs through certain vegetables. I truly believe this is the way to go.. love incorporating mediterranean dishes in the mix. Strong supporter of healthy fats and lean proteins.

  35. A.A. on August 23, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Keto worked very well for me … I went from 258 lbs to 177 lbs in about 8 month…. with one to two carb loading days depending on how I felt…. Now I’m stable around 189 lbs.

  36. Amy Ellett on August 23, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I needed this badly… I lost 65 lbs last year on a diet and gained 50 back just as quickly as I lost it… it was so miserable and I’ve been trying ever since to do it again… he’s right I just need to choose nutrition and be wise in my choices.. his videos are a life saver

    Super speech!

  39. Ryan G on August 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I thought the Santa Clarita diet was the most dangerous…

    But in any case, yes Ketogenic dieting does work really well over time. I’ve known people who, over long periods of time, have lost significant amounts of weight and felt great as a result. I’ve personally never been much overweight, but did have really great health / energy improvements from going more toward a keto diet.

  40. Black Magick Sorcerer on August 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I went from crap food to strict keto… yes, I jumped in without easing my way into it. It was hard. I cheated once and got out of ketosis. Also, I made some mistakes that made my kidneys hurt the first few days. Also, thought I was drinking enough water, but wasn’t. After all that, after a few days, my body felt soooo good!! Cut out sugar, grains and dairy (found out I’m lactose intolerant and never knew it). It improved my mood and attitude incredibly. I was shocked by how good I felt. Lost 15 pounds. Amazing energy. Feel great!

  41. Aaron Binkley on August 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    For the majority of my life I have eaten just one meal a day, most days. It is a fairly big meal usually and I’m not gonna lie and say I never have the occasional day where I eat more than once (especially when I’m visiting relatives), but almost every day I eat just one meal. When I worked in an office years ago people found it so OFFENSIVE that I wasn’t eating lunch when they were they began hounding me that it "isn’t healthy" to eat just once a day and that I was "killing" myself by eating just once a day. Now, of course, many of these people pressuring me the most were themselves overweight, but whatever, you have to listen to the "wisdom of the crowd" right? I mean, literally no one was on my side, everyone told me I was wrong, so I caved. I started eating three times a day. A year and a half later (after having to buy all new clothes because nothing I had fit anymore) I had gone from about 160 to 210 lbs. When I left that job and went back to my old ways… I immediately lost 20 lbs, in like a couple months. This was years ago and I have only recently got myself back down to 180 (I’m not starving myself, folks) and intend to put on more muscle and probably won’t be paying as much attention to the numbers on the scale from now on so much as the inches around my waist, and shoulders and chest, and back and biceps. So, I can 100% agree with this idea that whatever works for you is what is best. Maybe I have a slow metabolism or something and don’t need as many calories as other people, or, more likely since I never count calories, I’m probably packing a solid 2000+ away in a single meal most days and letting my body’s natural processes take care of any day to day fluctuations. I mean, do you seriously think that our cave man ancestors got exactly the right amount of calories every single day? Of course not, some days the hunt was bad and had to settle for a handful of nuts and berries, and some days they bagged two big bucks in the same day and ate like kings. Why do you think we even have fat stores at all if we weren’t meant to use them once and awhile. I have NEVER before, and am NOT now, advocating that other people should (or "must" or "would be better off") eating the way I do. I just want other people to leave my eating habits alone and let me live the way I prefer to.

  42. Mike Maunders on August 23, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    haha things we put into our body that change the way we feel… the mind boggles.
    Seriously though, Jeff is bang on the money right here, If you want to change your body, you have to change your life !

  43. Semaj Oiranilom on August 23, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    took me 2 years to figure out what would work long term for me….keto breakfast, whatever makes sense that day for lunch to net 1200 kcal, and no dinner plus 5 short workouts at home per week. Of course, that’s to lose 1% body weight per month. Not sure how this will work after I lose everything, probably just adjust kcal per day…but this is very comfortable and enjoyable for me, and maybe more importantly highly flexible and easy to recover from any mistakes I make. And learning just how complicated exercising can become over time, so who knows where that will go, but my only goals are health and mobility and eventually athleticism… sounds fun to me. Thanks for the motivation, advice, and interesting medical type information.

  44. Gawin Anderson on August 23, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Thanks for the insight 👍🏾I honestly was juggling back and forth with keto or counting calories. This helps..

  45. S/SGen3/426 on August 23, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Jeff’s right…it isn’t about DIET…it’s about a concise lifestyle change. It’s all about a gradual change…what’s comfortable, and is effective, but WORKS for your particular scenario.

  46. The Red Pilled Werewolf on August 23, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    On point! 💯%

    Truth is, you’re always on a diet. The question is whether its a healthy or unhealthy diet.

  50. 92skid on August 23, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Unbelievable video Jeff a lot of these tips went to heart for me thank you for the amazing stuff. I’m a subscriber to Athlean X loving the workouts so far. 🙂
