  1. The only doctors I trust: Dr. Eric Berg, Dr. Stan Ekberg and Dr. Jason Fung. You sirs really changed my life and I am cincerely grateful. I have been struggeling with my weight all my life since my early teens. It's a lifestile and not a diet. I have been doing IF for a couple of months so far, started doing OMAD and prolonged fasts recently. I have never felt better and I enjoy my mental clarity. Thank you Dr. Berg!

  2. Unfortunately I can not buy organic meat at the moment as our butchers are closed during our lockdown here in New Zealand 🇳🇿 and our meat is super expensive
    Also I thought cheese is part of keto diet? I see people adding cheese to their egg omelette with spinach:
    Now I’m really confused:

  3. Lot's of comments to look through so I'll just pose the question again if it's already been asked.

    What if people can't afford Grass Fed/Finished beef? In normal times it's pretty expensive but in today's pandemic world, it's even more expensive as is everything.

  4. Very good information. The problem I have where I live is that there is no organic certificate. No legislation in this regard. And it is impossible to know how the animals were raised. So those requirements can only be met by raising your food yourself. On top of it, soybeans are planted in which glyphosate is used. I can't think of a solution.

  5. I learn everyday my friend. I'm 66 years old and I'm on my way of being in the best shape of my life..
    You are a great Doctor.
    Intermittent fasting has been my strength.
    I stick to the 16 off and 8 hours on
    3 eggs in the morning with toast.
    For lunch…A big salad with carrots. Pine nuts dried beets, with olive garden dressing and balsamic.
    Dinner I change it up,
    Either tuna, fatter burger, turkey burger, with vegetables and a small salad.
    I'm satisfied and as my wife says.looking good..
    Thanx Doc…
