I agree 100% and even Dr. Phinney and VirtaHealth sometimes take jabs at Dr. Fung.
I am an IDMProgram (remote) client… I was so scared of fasting because of “Society”…
Like Atkins and Keto fears… They were UNFOUNDED.
Dr. Phinney quotes studies done on 30 day fasts, and even dry fasting to prove it is bad. But ignores that for the first 3-5 days of fasting, YOUR METABOLISM GOES UP. It’s on the VERY CHARTS he references and in the VERY STUDIES he chides as proof.
I’ve reached out to Bill Pulte asking if he would FUND some concept of “Biggest Winners” (where we take overweight Biggest Loser types, and we assign them to VARIOUS Keto/Carnivore Doctors and coaches, and they compete).
I would love to see:
Team Ken Berry
The doctors and coaches would volunteer their time/expertise for the coverage.
The game plan would be to use ENTERTAINMENT to EDUCATE.
People could hear the differences between these approaches (some are subtle).
And they could see the actual Experience.
DEXA Scans before, during and after.
Rated on: Efficacy, Ease, and Results…
The goal would be to show people how they might “fit” into different programs.
(Dr. Berg is way too high in vegetables for me. His DIM product caused my daughter to stop having her period, she is a near carnivore like myself, it turns out).
And to show, at the end, NOT just the weight loss. But the health gains.
Finally, every Episode would have a blast to the past, covering someone who is maintaining and what they do differently lifestyle wise. (Existing Clients of the teams could be used for these in the first few seasons)…
