What is better? Low Fat High Carb or High Fat Low Carb diets? Well they are both great… one or the other usually works well for certain individuals. Combining both is a NO NO..

By keeping your carbs high and fat low you will be giving the body plenty of high quality glucose which the body uses for energy. Use the energy to work out a lot and have a great time… just keep the fat low and from healthy sources!

By using a High Fat low carb diet you can burn lots of fat and dont have to work out as much… Dont get me wrong you should work out and move every day. But on this type of diet the body will learn to burn fat and ketones for its energy rather than glucose. This leads to loosing fat.

Either way, eat clean, eat real food, and move your body every day!!!

    Hi thanks for the video. Today is day 1 for my HCLF diet. According to my lose it app I'm at 74% carbs, 23% protein and 3% fat. The only animal food I ate was a chicken breast. The rest were fruits, vegetables, plain no fat yogurt, egg whites and egg muffin. Is this bad?´╗┐

    Hi nice channel, I just come across this video coz I'm struggling between thins two diets, basically i exercise 3,4 times per week and lead a quite active lifestyle but i need burn like 5 percent of my body fat fast. So i decided to try HFLC….honestly on second day i got completely sick i got all stomach issues for couple of days and could not go even to gym. Never HFLC again.´╗┐

    Hi! Thanks for the video! If you were to go with the high fat diet, would you have to cut out a lot of fruit? I am interested in going high fat, but I love fresh fruit and I can't imagine giving it up.´╗┐

    I know you shouldn't combine fat and sugar, but what about combining them intra-day, but not intra-meal. For example say only eating two meals a day one at say 12PM which is say a beef tallow broth. No protein, no carbohydrates. Then at night all the protein and carbs together. I'm just concerned about the requirement for fat intake, or if going ultra low fat is OK for health even to help lose body fat. Thanks.´╗┐

    Why do HCLF have to exercise a ton? Hypothetically if both diets are equal in calories. Please let me know :] Also, what is more efficient for energy, fats or carbs? Wouldn't that tell us which diet is better recommended?´╗┐

    Why does it have to always be "HIGH this" or "LOW that" when it comes to diet. Too much or too little oil in an engine is going to do damage and not perform optimally. The human body needs a certain(optimum)amount of the 3 macro-nutrients and I just don't see the logic in advocating extremes,when a clean,healthy and balanced (optimum amount of each macro)diet (with total calories not spiking insulin)gives the body all it needs and nothing it doesn't want. I realize you are probably just informing people with info on certain diets,but why do people in general tend to miss the obvious (healthy balanced diet)and only seek out crazy (high/low)extremes. You would never hear drag racers debating which is better,high or low octane fuel. The simply put in the optimum octane fuel that delivers the best performance. Food is fuel for the body and it doesn't need (nor want) too much or too little of any macro-nutrients. It performs best with the optimum amount and when it is performing optimally (most healthy,full of energy,highest mental acuity…) everything else (like fat loss) automatically falls into place. Hormones have an important role in the body and too much or too little of things like fat and carbs will affect the optimum production of hormones. Even the words fat and carbs are pretty much meaningless unless the source is mentioned. High fructose corn syrup and broccoli are both carbs and trans fat and good fats are both fat,but they have drastically different effects on the body.´╗┐

    I really want to lose weight. I've been a vegan for a year and love it, but I want to go one step further. I'm not someone who exercises every single day, but I would love to lose some of my weight. Which one would be better for me?´╗┐

    My understanding from my personal research is that HCLF diets are not good for diabetics, unless you practically live in the gym. As you state in your video you have to burn off all those carb calories.
    Also a point: Your body runs on glucose on either diet. But, on a HFLC diet it has to convert the fat first and since the conversion process is very inefficient, reducing your caloric intake (a LOT easier on the HFLC diet), you will burn body fat.´╗┐

    Great information Rob, thank you! There is so much conflicting information today when it comes to macro nutrients. You read books from good doctors like Fuhrman, Hyman, McDougall, Greger, Barnard, Axe, etc, and it is really confusing. They all say something different and seem so sure´╗┐

    ugh stresses me out. I'm a high carb high fat vegan. Not because I try to, but it's just how my diet pans out. I can't give up avocados and nut butters. I eat about 60% carb, 30%fat and 10% protein. I don't understand why it's so unhealthy to eat like this. I really don't want to give up avocado, coconut meat, almonds, cashews, etc. Also- unrelated- what size are your plugs? :)´╗┐

  11. Emily Moir

    Thanks for your video! I have to be honest though, I'm despairing over the fact that, according to all the things I see/read online about nutrition, I have to either severely limit carbs or severely limit fat.
    On high carbs I miss cooking with olive oil and stuff like that, but a low carb high fat diet sounds expensive! Is there no way one can have a balance of the two- like a medium fat, medium carb diet :p – and be healthy (provided regular exercise is included)?´╗┐

  12. Veni Vidi Amavi

    I crave carbs the most, but I love my peanut butter, coconut, and hummus. Oh man my hummus. So, idk. I think the HCLF would work for me better, but a lot of carbs from veggies makes me bloated. But it's true I have not paid too much attention to the food pairings. Very informative video, thanks so much!!´╗┐

  13. DontAsk

    If you eat lots of fat low carb low sugar will the body burn the fats

    Will the body only burn the fat that you're currently eating? Will it also burn internal body fat?´╗┐

  14. Barbie Lee

    What can you recommend for a sedentary petite? I count calories coz I don't workout. I've been following a High carb low fat though I include breast chicken and egg whites for protein. But I noticed my stomach expands that I eat sometimes 2 cups of grains at dinner unlike before and sleep with a full belly. Pls help´╗┐

    Any suggestions as to which kind of diet would be better for people with autoimmune/inflammatory diseases? I was just diagnosed with lupus not long ago, as well as having a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome that causes a lot of joint inflammation. I've been sticking to the autoimmune paleo protocol for about a month, and I've been feeling a decrease in my energy levels ever since. I'm told that this could just be because my body is focusing on healing, and that it could take a few months to feel much of a change, but I do worry that this might not be the best choice for me.´╗┐

    hey rob i really really like this video! good job! one question though…

    what are your opinions on my macros… im currently at 25:30:45 (carbs, fats, proteins) because i find that this ratio is easier for me personally to sustain… (ive tried LCHF and dropped significant amounts of body fat but after a 2-3 weeks i couldn't handle all the fats so i stopped)´╗┐

  17. Fabulous Rainbow Unicorn

    Very interesting! I've been thinking about it for a while actually. The high fat low carb people seem to be very lean and thin, while the high carb low fat people also seem to be. To me it started to seem like it's either one of the two "extremes" that would be best, and being somewhere in the middle between carbs and fat would be the least benefitial. Has anyone ever heard of this?´╗┐

  18. Eternal Anglo

    Question: I want to both lose weight and put on muscle. I really want to do a High Fat Low Carb diet because I love meat and dairy products. But I've heard people say it's not as good for people who work out a lot as the LFHC diet. I'm not trying to become a body builder. I just want to put on muscle. Will a LCHF diet still allow me to do this?´╗┐


    I've noticed some people who tend to eat quite a lot of carbs and also high fat, but healthy fats like from eggs, avocados, olive and coconut oil, almonds and other nuts and seeds, whole organic milk, salmon etc, and they will eat complex and clean carbs like wild or brown rice, sweet potato, bananas etc. I've noticed they are very ripped and have good size and a very low body fat percentage. I was wondering if eating high fat, low carb for the first half of the day, then eating high carb, low fat for the last half of the day could work (along with lots of HIIT training like sprints and lots of resistance training like calisthenics and weights for lower body)? Obviously not eating carbs too late at night though, and it would be just clean, complex carbs.´╗┐

    I have started on a high carb low fat diet (raw till 4) because I saw it and thought it would be good (saw Freelee). But I want to lose weight, so is Hight fat low carbs (70-15-15) better for me? (And I don't eat meat on raw till 4 and would like to continue to not eat meat for as long as I can.)
    And how much should I work out (What kind of workouts) in a week on either diet?´╗┐

  21. De Gup
