Dr. Paul Mason – 'From fibre to the microbiome: low carb gut health'

Dr Mason developed an interest in low carbohydrate diets in 2011. Since then he has spent hundreds of hours reading and analysing the scientific literature.

  1. on 10:10 you claim that the ketones in the blood can have the same nourishing effect on gut cells as ketones from butyrates from fiber in the colon itself. Any articles to back this up? my GI and dietician want to put me on a plant based diet but i want to show them evidence that my tactic (although it might need some polishing) could work

  2. So there is a radomized trial showing the oposite effects of what this Dr is caliming: A randomized trial of the effects of flaxseed to manage constipation

    Also there is a meta study from 2012 who looks as studies with the same level of soundness (1300 of them) and concludes adding fiber is effective in most cases for treating constipation.

    Now this took 5 min or googeling…. this dude obv is trying to pull the covers over peoples eyes…

    Not saying either or, because we are all different, but know that everyone is trying to sell you something or acting on confirmation bias.

  3. 12:46: " 'low biologically available glucose diet' – because we can’t say low-carb diet in a diabetes journal?" LOL We're starting to see more and more backsliding language, as prestigious journals, organizations, and universities figure out an elegant way to reverse position without upsetting Agriculture. Look to see the phrase "Medical Nutrition Therapy" thrown about related to low-carb diets. For example the American Diabetes Association’s new Consensus Report of April 18, 2019: "This moves a low carbohydrate eating pattern and a very low carbohydrate (ketogenic) eating pattern from the realm of a popular lifestyle choice to Medical Nutrition Therapy for the purpose of disease management." 🙂 I suppose those of us not yet diagnosed are supposed to keep stuffing ourselves with so-called "heart-healthy grains" until a doctor says stop.

  4. Bless you. When I first came to Switzerland, I was baffled as to how I suddenly began to have vastly different and yet much better bowel movements than where I had lived previously. The confusion came from the fact that I was eating significantly more meat and cheese while at the same time, lower amounts of Fiber.

  5. I like how vegans are considered to be pretentious, irrational and vicious and they supposedly think of themselves as superior yet the very first comment is trashing vegans just for the sake of it. I watch a lot videos about food science and I would estimate that easily 80 percent of all comments about vegans are just meat eaters insults. And they are not even under vegan videos or comments they are just randomly trying to provoke and deride. This is just sad people.

  6. ﻻ تاخدو كﻻمه بجدية يكفي ان تعرفو ان أستراليا اقتصادها قائم على تصدير مواشي يعني اللحم فهو يدافع عن اقتصاد بﻻده دراسة ممولة من حكومته
