[Preview] Dr. Ted Naiman: Too much protein is better than too little


I have this spoiler alert for you. Every single human obesity study
you will ever look at ever at all in the history of medical literature, the more protein people eat the better,
always, completely, like there’s no exception. But we will just talk about some anyway. Here’s an ad lib. obesity study,
12% versus 25% protein. Of course the high-protein group
crushes the low-protein group. Look at the intra-abdominal fat
going down on the high-protein group. Here is 1.6 g per kilo
versus 0.8 g per kilo. The high-protein group lost 53% more
body fat on the same number of calories. What? I thought it was all about calories. Well, clearly not about protein calories. Okay here’s a study ad lib.,
human obesity study. 15% versus 30%. Of course the high-protein group
just crushes the low-protein group. They lost way more weight,
way more fat and had lower hunger scores
the entire time… just pretty magical. 16% versus 27%… Of course 27% wins. This is an interesting study that said
pregnant women tracked their macros and ultra-sounded the amount
of abdominal fat on their fetuses and they did this because we have
an epidemic of gestational diabetes and fetal macrosomia and C-sections
and babies being too fat. Sure enough there’s a carbohydrate effect. The more carbs you eat,
the fatter your fetuse is. There’s almost no fat effect at all. The fattest and the thinnest fetuses
were at about 40% fat. That’s starting to look familiar, right? And then it’s all about the protein. It’s just a huge linear protein association, where the higher the protein,
the thinner your fetus was, and the lower the protein
the fatter your fetus was in a purely linear fashion. And if you eat a high-protein diet, even your offspring comes out
ripped and jacked with a sixpack pretty much.

  1. Great info,,,,I lost 15kg of fat,,using ADF,,Waterfast,,Keto but with salad or veg,,, waist from 40" to 34",,,my goal was 34" as heard that aiming for a waist size which is half your height is ideal,,,,,,,I'm early 50s,,, this took me a year,,, all of a sudden the weight came back and I started ballooning again,,,, so I decided drop the cardio and increase protein and now I'm aiming for 1 gram of protein per kg of weight,,, the bloating and weight gain has now gone,,,,, years back I taught in gyms here in UK and on my Gym instructors course I was taught about 1 gram of protein per kg is fine,,,body builders aim for 1 gram per lb of bodyweight,,, if anyone has any advice on this I'd luv to hear,, have a great week,,

  2. I'd like to see what the other macros were in the studies he mentioned.

    my personal experience does not agree…i find it hard to lose fat when my protein intake is high.

  3. People who are scared of gluconeogenesis from protein really need to review some talks by Ben Bikman about glucagon. If you keep your carbs low enough, overconsumption of protein isn't NEARLY the problem people make it out to be.

  4. I would love to see a debate between Dr. Ted Naiman – a doctor who seems to be advocating eating protein ad libitum – and Dr. Ron Rosedale, a doctor who implores people to minimize protein to very small amounts.

  5. Eat around 2g grams of protein per 1kg body mass. So for me it's up to 200 grams of protein a day. Than eat around 90-100 grams of fat a day to make sure you won't mess your hormonal pathways and what's left is carbs. Protein 200 g – 800 kcal, fat 100 g – 900 kcal, so there is 1700 kcal from protein and fat. If your maintenance calorie expenditure is 2500 kcal a day, so you still can eat 100 grams of carbs and loose weight because you're 400 kcal in deficit, with a total of 2100 kcal consumption per day

  6. This doesn't mean anything, of course the higher protein group lost more fat on the "same calories" becuase it's not the same calories

  7. Diet Doctor, I understand wanting to have membership fees and to only allow members to see many of your videos, but do you think that you'll ever put up the full videos after they're a year old or so? Sort of like pay-per-view tv where it's free after several months for those on very tight budgets? 🙂

  8. Can anyone chime in, especially with an MD? Dr. Ted Naiman mentioned fetuses many times during this video. Does that mean we should make our girlfriends eat carnivore ONLY to ensure we have super strong and healthy babies? This is a serious question. I need to make sure my daughter eats the right foods to make me a super grandkid. And yes she is only 12 weeks old, so I am super planning ahead.

  9. My father, for my entire life, was so so concerned about getting enough protein. He'd call me when I was in college and ask what I've had for protein that day. It was an ongoing joke in our family. At age 50 he began competing as a natural bodybuilder and took first place several times in the Grand Master's Competitions. He's now 71 and looks 60. Up until about 4 weeks ago he was up and at the gym 3-4 times a week.
    I've been an organic farmer for since the age of 20 and my family has raised grass-fed beef, lamb, chicken, turkey and eggs on our 92 acre farm. We ate only our own meat and eggs, and had this source of protein daily, NO processed foods and as farmers, get a lot of exercise. A year ago I had a scare, at age 41, and ended up in the ER with chest pains, shortness of breath and dizziness. After this scare, I looked immediately into heart healthy diets. I immediately went to a whole foods plant based diet. It's been a year now and I feel and look amazing and am able to work longer and harder without the aches and pains, and most of all, no more angina. After going plant based and reading the profound research data, I told my dad I was concerned about him. His daily diet was a big salad, lots of eggs and chicken, nuts, seeds, a small amount of fruit, and a lot of extra virgin olive oil. NO whole grains and very little fruit – it was like he was afraid of the stuff. My father said "I will never stop eating eggs and chicken, but I will eat some beans and whole grains". He did – for about 2 weeks and then was back to his same old diet. Then…4 weeks ago he had a stoke. Oh how EVERYONE in my family was soooo surprised!!!! "He's the most fit person I know" said his sister. I wasn't surprised – actually, I was just sadly waiting for this to happen. Following the stoke, he was diagnosed with heart disease and skin cancer all within a couple weeks apart. Fortunately, the strokes that took place were TIA's and he's doing better now and on a strict WHOLE FOOD plant-based diet. He says "I'm eating to save my life". The MORAL OF THE STORY — Just because you look AWESOME AND FIT on the outside doesn't mean you're awesome and fit on the inside. I encourage everyone who follows a high protein, high fat, low carb diet for more than a few years to have a stress test performed – just to be sure your heart is okay. I believe that my experience with crushing chest pain is what's going to keep my father around for many more years!
