New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Dr. Berg & Professor Timothy Noakes on the Ketogenic Diet & Exercise Myths?
[Music] hey guys I have another special guest professor Noakes from South Africa South African scientist professor of exercise science and sports medicine author of many books that I have I’m really excited to talk to you today so welcome from South Africa what time is it over there right now just cause 2 o’clock in the afternoon oh wow ok so in what day is it I’ll have to think it’s Thursday okay got it ok great so um I want to first talk about you you at one point promoted the high carb diets for a while right tell me a little bit about yeah tell me a little bit about that and then I think what changed your mind so I started running in the late 1960s early 70s and I started my physiology training in medicine in 1970 and those that one of the first years that the new theory arose that muscle glycogen ie carbohydrates in the muscle was the single notice the single factor determining athletic performance Wow and that’s how it was projected to all of us and said I’m a young student studying physiology in medicine and I’m running marathons and I discovered this and it this is the most exciting piece of information I I heard in the whole medical training so I was started promoting this high carbohydrate diet in the 1980 1970s and I said then of course adopted that diet and then I went to did my medical training completed my medical training I was surrounded by cardiologists it was so telling us that if you eat fat you’re gonna die so I was gonna eat lots of carbohydrate and it was gonna make me run better well in fact it made me run worse and I got fatter and progressively sicker and then in 1970 1981 my father was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and he died 10 years later and eventually I discovered that I also had type 2 diabetes and I realized I’ve got 10 years to solve this problem or else I’m gonna die like he did and that fortunately he forced me to look very seriously into the what was going on in the evidence and I came across a book called the new Atkins for the new for a new year written by doctors Westman boney verlag and Finney and within two hours of reading that book I said oh my gosh I got it completely wrong for 33 years Wow in two hours I’d changed I started changing my diet and with the results were spectacular and I haven’t looked back for seven and a half years so that’s how it all started and then initially I was very reluctant say anything about it because I knew that their backlash and I knew that I would be vilified that I didn’t realize extent to which I’d be vilified cautious initially but then eventually it came out and then the problems arose and then my fat mine my colleagues attacked me and that’s been seven years of attacks yeah I I saw that that was ridiculous do you know do you find that um these the more educated someone is educated the harder it is for them to learn new concepts new ideas that’s a really good question what I discovered was that the academics in hospital practice are the ones who are most ingrained because they’ve been bought by the pharmaceutical industry and what they say is controlled by industry although they don’t understand it and so they are the ones who are really really tough the the guys aren’t in general practice the academics and that the the doctors in general practice are much more open because they’ve gotta treat patients and make them better but if you work in a hospital it actually the page you don’t have a sort of direct relationship you see all these thousands of people but you don’t have a direct person-to-person relationship with the individual patients but if you’re running your own private practice you do so so what’s going to happen is that the change is going to occur in in the private sector of medicine with where doctors have to face up to their patients but in the public sector there’s still a long way to go because there’s so much resistant to change oh yeah I know I run into it all the time I want to talk about your you wrote this book on water log which is faster than me because there’s this whole I don’t know it’s like one of those things that everyone knows that you need to drink a lot of water or drink or water keep drinking water where did this come from is it just made up that’s a great question because again when I started running we used to run marathons and you allowed one drink sort of thing that was what you Wow I can and and you had to provide your own own drinks and in fact that was one of the first things I also started activating on so when I was running I was telling the authorities now you must give us more drinks for our races and within ten years it changed dramatically and then from getting a drink every like 15 or 20 kilometers that’s what Aborigine was it came down to every mile every 1.6 kilometers that you were drinking Wow and then then what happened was the sports drink industry took off and they made sure that they were gonna drive this and so various companies one in particular which we won’t name and shame at this stage because it’s fall in the book anyone can read it right but this one particular company realized that actually the marathon runners aren’t the ones you’re going to drink all their drinks it’s the person going to the gym and you’ve got to be able to tell the person going to the gym that if they do one minute exercise they could die if they don’t drink and that’s the message they got out Wow and it it’s unbelievable but they didn’t said that dehydration is a disease and it’s not it’s a biological response as you know they said the iteration is a disease and if you become dehydrated you can die and it’s going to affect your performance and so they Maynard managed to sell this to millions and millions and millions of people who working out in the gym for 10 minutes that they must drink a lot and so on and so that’s what happened but then when you transfer that to marathon running and you tell people to drink ahead of thirst and you provided so much fluid during these races because remember there was nowhere else in the world where you could get so much free fluid for the four or five hours that you ran a marathon you could drink and drink and drink and of course people over drank and and sundown and we predicted that it would be an American female runner who would die and that happened in 1993 it was absolutely as we had predicted Wow so so that was its again it was industry industry brainwashed people to believe and that’s again the problem we have with on nutrition story industry brainwashed us to believe certain things just simply not true okay for those of you are watching what we’re talking about is when you drink too much water you’re gonna dilute certain electrolytes specially potassium and what’s gonna happen is you need potassium for the heart to work to balance fluids in the brain so if you drink too much water it’s called hyponatremia right and your brain can swell it can really be dangerous and it can die and there at least 15 days in runners and triathletes and and particularly in the military which is really interesting because that the biggest incidence has been in the military and they finally finally find it this year so that we describe the condition in 1981 and now it’s 2018 the first time in in history the US military said if a patient comes in and you think they’ve got a heat illness and they confused you may not give them fluids until you measure the blood sodium concentration mother that in 1985 or 86 that’s how long it takes for change to occur so just so you guys know doctor Professor Noakes is the key the top researcher on this data exercise associated hyponatremia you’ve done us some articles on this research a lot right yeah we were the first to describe that it occurred in a lady in the 1981 comrades marathon which is a 90 kilometer 56 mile race in South Africa and she wrote to me after the race because she’d been unconscious for four days so here she starts this race completely healthy and then she’s unconscious and she wrote to me a week later or so when she’d regained she said what happened she said no sodium went down and so then we knew the hyponatremia that was the first case and we connected a whole series of cases and just by talking to the patient’s you could see that they drank a lot and there was clear evidence that one of them for example was a lady with anorexia nervosa who was very sensitive about her weight and she said but you know profile put on four kilograms during this Ironman and I knew I had to believe her because she would be you know she would know what your weight change was and another guy told me he’d passed like about six liters of urine in recoveries and so then we were getting an idea then we did as we did an investigation of we hospitalized eight patients with the condition these people near death in the comrades marathon and we recovery study them during recovery and we could show that they all passed an excess of urine and that average of the worst case was a guy who had excreted six liters of extra fluid so he’d increased his body weight by six kilograms so then we knew and we published that paper in the year in the Journal of applied physiology and I thought well that’s the end we proved what causes it it’s gonna go away well actually no because they were scientists who were being encouraged to say that this was nonsensical research and dehydration is the real problem and if you tell people that under drink they’ll all die of dehydration now that was the argument and industry was driving it and then the American College of Sports Medicine brought up the new guidelines in 1996 and they said you must drink ale assist essentially to drink as much as tolerable that was the ruling there was the advice and there’s there’s no biology that that tells you that you must drink to as much as tolerable right so we have to drink more drink more thirsty right that’s the common sense type solution and that’s how all animals drink and so wash it humans be different but we because we got this brain and we think we must do something with the brain well they’re actually the body will tell you what to do exactly since we’re talking about fluids what about long distance running and electrolytes and cramping but in some of your books can you touch on that yeah well we did quite a lot of studies to try and see if people who have cramping were dehydrated or lost more sodium or we’re at low sodium’s and we never found it however it’s remarkable that many people benefit by taking salt and so so this is the paradox that we can’t show that you have a salt deficiency if you’re cramping and certainly when you go on the high-fat diet a lot of people complain bitterly of cramping and we told him but the salt won’t make any difference but it does make a difference so so the things about salt that we don’t understand and it’s really it’s good because if you read waterlogged you’ll see I give all the evidence and there’s plenty of evidence that you it’s impossible it comes out in deficient today yet some people benefit by taking salt so and some people run better when they take more salt so there are things that we don’t fully understand God again it’s just like we’re all an experiment of one and and we just have to experiment and you know follow the general rules and then so the general rule is that most people that need additional salt when they’re running but some people got cramping will may find it beneficial how about magnesium and potassium I think those go together with salt so you’ve probably if you are problem suffering from cramping I certainly would advise you to try those three and particularly if you’re on a high-fat diet because there’s a lot of reports of people really benefiting on a high-fat diet and they clearly become salt deficient but I bet if you tasted them you wouldn’t find it but they that benefit from salt and potassium and magnesium but but it’s but a general rule is you probably don’t need it but some people will benefit from it yeah I mean you also have the situation where like most dissolve but most of the potassium is inside the cell which is sometimes it’s hard to test that because you’re checking the blood you’re not checking intracellular minerals so it’s kind of um it might not show up in the blood or X exterior to the cell yeah sodium’s anyone that really does show up in the inner bloodstream yeah so let’s touch on um this common thing that people cut up like athletes that keep asking me yes but if I lower my carbs I’ll lower my performance when I’m working out or I’m doing athletic activities can you touch on that yeah okay I think that we have to realize that 99.9% of everyone of athletes or recreational athletes and that’s the point so when we talk about the point one percent two competing Olympics at short distances say up to two five or ten kilometers yes I think there may well be a role for for some carbohydrates in them but for the recreational athletes really if you run a minute faster or a minute slow is not that’s not important what’s important is your long-term health and what worries me is that there are a lot of athletes like myself who eat a high carbohydrate diet and then damage themselves for life and that’s the issue so you if you can tolerate carbohydrates and you’re not insulin resistant and you’re not heading towards diabetes like I was yes eat a little bit more carbohydrate but you only need 200 or 250 grams a day I mean if you go back and read some of my early books you’ll see we were telling people to eat a kilogram Wow there was there was in the Tour de France and I mean that is that is murder you want to kill people give them a kilogram wow that’s a lot yes a lot so I think I think you’ll find that today a high carbohydrate diet for a Tour de France cyclists he’s probably 300 grams or 350 grams and that they are burning most of the energy that they’re burning is coming from fats that’s critically important to remember most of the energy when you’re exercising is coming from fat not from carbohydrate Wow so if you’re doing an ultra marathon for example what should a person should eat anything in that process that’s a great question and answers if you carbohydrate adapted you have to eat carbohydrate and because otherwise you’re gonna run into trouble because you see what people don’t understand is if your carbohydrate adapted you’re metabolically crippled and no one tells you that you see okay sure you might be able to sprint a little bit more up one or two hills but when it comes to a long slog over four or five hours you’ve got to burn fat and the the well-trained elite athletes can burn 1.6 1.8 grams of carbohydrate a minute whereas if you are carbohydrate adapted you burning 0.6 and that’s it a third a third one when you gone a couple of hours and you’re into you you’ve reduced your carbohydrates and now you’ve got to burn fat the guy who’s a is carbohydrate adapted just hasn’t got the energy and and I think actually the most most ultra distance runners even as they eating a higher carbohydrate that are probably fed adapted because they do a lot of training in a set typically at a carbohydrate depleted state because if they wouldn’t they couldn’t do what they do right they don’t understand that they are actually significantly fed adapted even though that evening or they think they’re eating a high carbohydrate diet fascinating and so you tap out the glycogen Reserve and then they hit this sometimes I hit this wall call it the bark or something correct and that’s when you want to be burning fat and then if you’ve fed adapted you can just carry on all day so you to answer your first question if you probably fell adapted do you need to eat I’m just rewriting law running and I’m going back to read all the old stuff again and one of the great runners was a check with Austin Newton he really started the ultra distance running he’s a father of ultra distance running and I’m reading again what he used to eat and they were all eating lots of meat and a little carbohydrate and in the race say down a big break was a big English breakfast and he’d run and halfway through the race he’d stop and he’d have a meat based food that was what they used to eat and but Betty and then they they did take some carbohydrate in butter sugar in the sugary drinks but that was it they didn’t stop and eat bananas and potatoes and apples and things they did have sugary drinks abuse et with added sugar but this the main sustenance for them was a high protein high fat meal before and in fact during the races then I’m as I and Bruce Fordyce and Bernhard raise the three of us we were the first to develop degrees in South Africa Murray : I remember Ward us raise an axe and say we because here we were you know you need all that carbohydrate and so and we make people take all this carbohydrate and and we were right in the sense that if you carbohydrate a death did you need it that if you fat adapted you have to you don’t need it and the irony is all three of us are insulin resistant all three of us got fat all three of us now eat a high fat dot and eschew the carbohydrates oh my gosh I didn’t know oh my gosh that is ironic and then the other question I have there’s another concept that if you eat too much fat people are gonna say this will aren’t gonna increase my cholesterol am I gonna die of a heart attack can you touch on that point yeah well I’m glad to saw you also question because I would encourage everyone to go to the third to health VI or ta health website and where the health is just completed the first year of a two or three year study in which they feared high-fat diets to diabetics now okay so diabetics are the sickest people on earth they are given the worst thought possible they told eat lots of fat and lots of protein and cut the cost that’s a a recipe for utter disaster yes I guess for that you mean you just you said no car you mean high carb I don’t mean like oh sorry sorry yeah I’m just using this so technically according to all our knowledge they trade they’re the most dangerous diet to the unhealthiest people concurrent it must be a disaster they must all dropped it right well it was they done they actually get better and percent put their diabetes into remission but more importantly they measure 24 markers of cardiovascular health 24 mask markers 23 improved more in the high fat group than in the conventional treated group eating a high carbohydrate diet only different only one was cholesterol the so called class on cholesterol has no predictive value in heart disease anyway you got a look at the package so what they showed you take the sickest people you give them they’re supposed to the most toxic diet you possibly can and 23 of 24 markers of cardiovascular disease improve and the only one that doesn’t improve is the one that is emit is immaterial anyway so that to me that’s the kind of the final answer to this to this problem yes indeed your cholesterol may go up but that’s probably a good thing rather than a bad thing because everything else is going to improve so we don’t focus on what’s not important focus on all the other stuff which is important yeah that’s right and just four people are watching you have to realize that your body makes cholesterol makes it 3,000 milligrams a day so it’s a necessary part of our physiology we need that cellular membranes hormones repair all sorts of things it’s probably the most important chemical in the body and some it’s wanted to try and stop us making it oh my great friends very hard come says the liver makes cholesterol it doesn’t want to try to kill you it’s trying to keep you alive that’s why it’s making cholesterol Wow yeah yeah because I do a lot of YouTube videos and I think one of where I get a lot of my material as I go to the mainstream push of whatever they’re pushing and I go to the exact opposite and you’re gonna find the truth because everything they’re promoting is it turns out to be completely utterly wrong so they give me a lot of good material to educate people in reverse and then the talks on let’s talk about insulin resistance I think this plays in with what you just said yeah and you can just touch on what it is and then what why fat will actually benefit someone there’s insulin resistance yeah so instant resistance to me is the name human condition for many populations you know that I say that reservedly because I don’t have the data to prove it but but I think that if you have grown if a population has grown up eating a high-protein high-fat low-carbohydrate diet they’ll have to be instant resistant and we know that mothers get more insulin resistant during pregnancy and we knew the babies are in some resistant the fetuses insulin resistance when it’s born so so it’s kind of in our genes and what’s happened in the last 40 or 50 years is that we’ve taken mothers and we’ve fed force-fed and carbohydrate we’re during their pregnancy that makes them more insulin resistant the fetus is born more insulin resistant and then we wean them onto high carbohydrate diets and that makes the child even more insulin resistance so the high carbohydrate diets are pushing us to become more and more and more insulin resistance what that what is that you can’t metabolize carbohydrates properly so in my case if I take carbohydrates my glucose shoots up my insulin shoots up and the insulin doesn’t work properly it can’t get the glucose into my tissues so I’ve got less muscle glycogen which of course is profoundly ironic because yellow was telling all these fat runners to eat lots of carbohydrate and they would they couldn’t get rid of the carbohydrate into the muscles they’ll convert it to fats and it wasn’t helping them anyway so you can’t metabolize the carbohydrate and the instant doesn’t work properly and it just gets worse every time you take in carbohydrate you over secrete insulin the insulin doesn’t work and it makes the system just get worse and worse and worse and the kid and you never burn fat because you’re always trying to get rid of all this carbohydrate you’re eating and so any fat that you ingest has to be stored because you can’t burn it because insulin prevents the burning of the fat and then the incident turns out is toxic on almost all body tissues so the body’s trying to protect the overdose of insulin and sugar by developing instant resistance is trying to tell us hey stop consuming so many carbohydrates yeah and if that’s what it takes the carbohydrate store the fat so initially it’s okay because you just get the subcutaneous tissues but then you put a little bit of that fat in the liver or in the pancreas and then you become even more insulin resistant and that’s when you tip over into diabetes it’s just one of those obvious things that sits like the elephant in the room that if you lower your carbs increase your fat fat has the least effect on insulin you’re gonna actually help insulin resistance and yeah so it’s seven oh my gosh it’s crazy it makes no sense that if you can’t tolerate carbohydrate that you encourage the carbohydrate so forth only we the evidence is coming through that and in fact the first the way people with type one diabetes where you don’t secrete any insulin they were treated on low carbohydrate diets in the 1920s before in soon was available and there was the only way you could get people to live any longer was not feeding either but we kind of forgot that wow I didn’t know that that’s it that’s interesting it’s like wow it’s just as amazing um what happened was an instant came along and then the guys thought we’ve cured the disease so you can eat what you like and we’ll give you money and says then and then other problems are that instant drops of glucose so doctors the worst thing they fear is that you drop your insulin your glucose it’s a rule it’s better to run at a higher glucose and then there’s more there’s less danger that you’ll get a hypoglycemic attack and that’s the problem because the hyperglycemia is caused by too much insulin so they’re really their focus on this hypoglycemia but they’re kinda ignoring the hyperinsulinemia problem which is just as damaging as the high sugar it’s in fact it’s yeah and it’s yeah Wow so what type of um interesting activities research are you currently doing right now in your lab or your office yeah I’m Sandra tired but we have a foundation the Noakes Foundation and we tried to fund research in and my interest services and diabetes and we’re just gearing up now for a study of people who are reversing their diabetes so over the years we developed a laboratory where we could study pretty much the old metallo of the human body and we’ve just added measurements of liver glucose production because that’s what really goes wrong in diabetes is you over produce glucose so we can now essentially measure everything we need to measure in diabetic patients so we’re taking a large sample of about 40 people with diabetes and we’re measuring their metabolism before we put on the invent intervention which is a low carbohydrate diet and then of that 40 we’re hoping 60% will reverse and then we’ll see what has changed in that group so then we’ll understand the biology of reversal which no one has studied yet so we know that you can reverse I use that word carefully because you’re not really healed you still can’t eat a high carbohydrate diet so you’re in remission in the sense so we’re trying to see what happens with in remission and we think that we will show that the liver glucose metabolism is normalized which which would be crucial and in that world sure okay so that’s what’s the problem in diabetes is that it’s the liver glucose production gets goes wrong and these are the reasons why that happens so we’ve being intensive research on that but the other thing that a lot of people ask is well if there’s low carbohydrate diets healthy and good but it’s very expensive and that actually is not true so that in South Africa as in in the United States the people who got the biggest diabetes problem or the poorest because they have the worst food choices and we’ve shown that in South Africa you can you can live quite well on three dollars a day you can eat well on three dollars a day and we’ve developed arts for three dollars a day now we’re about to do a major intervention of 200 people where we put them on a three dollar a day diet Wow see what happens and the these are people who are sick they’ve got diabetes high blood pressure and we know that also we know we suspect that once you take the sugar out because these people are completely sugar addicted and carbohydrate addicted because that’s all they can afford to or they thought that’s all they could afford and so they’ve eaten those foods for four decades and we’ve known and we’ve done at least ten interventions already and we show the blood pressure just comes shooting down just like within three weeks their blood pressure starts to normalize and they don’t need their medications and they start to feel some in control because these are the poorest of the poor who have no control of their lives and now we’ve shown them actually we can control your medical issues and it’s it’s absolutely eye-opening and it’s so rewarding so my foundation is funding a major study like that and then the third thing we do is we have set up a nutrition Network just in since May we’re we’re teaching doctors how to prescribe low carbohydrate diets and then the biology and the low carbohydrate diet and it’s it’s amazing because we believe the doctors are critical anyone in the medical profession bit nervous physio that whatever they all critical because if we can eat every doctor we can convert will convert ten thousand people at least because he’ll have a big patience and those patients will tell others and just as soon as the doctor says it’s okay then that makes a big difference right what kind of are they are they you seem to find that there’s interest there as they kind of slow what what we’ve had this great sign up I mean we just completely we expected a hundred people we got 400 people for the first course so that’s been exciting and we’re now going to really expand into a tier two and then a Tier three which will it be some sort of University diploma Wow essence real excited it is and it’s been very very well received and we had we’re very appreciative how well people are enjoying it Wow and guys just so you know I’m gonna put some links down below bye professor notes foundation some of his books and you need to check this guy out one question I had about them when people start to get on a ketogenic diet they lower their carbs obviously you’re gonna lower the insulin and if they’ve been insulin resistance for a long time occasionally the blood sugar is because they’ve been held down by the insulin tends to go up a little bit have you have you seen that generally you know I speak from a lot of experience if you if you frankly diabetic your glucose control improved dramatically so at the extremes where people at glucose is going up to 1518 20 in our units and I’m not quite sure what the American units would be but within days they can get the glucose down to 280 which would be normal for for the other values but we talk about values of five and said the remote it’s remarkable when you take a diabetic and put them on the star but you’re quite right there’s there can be a small increase initially but generally that will but will come let the glucose will start dropping in time well this is awesome I want to just thank you for your time for doing this interview and I think you should great insights into what could be possible to improve health and in the kind of contour intuitive viewpoints that are kind of shattering some of the myths out there the mainstream so I want to thank you for this interview and I hope to talk to you soon with some more updates so thank you very much Eric which was lovely chatting to you thanks so much great

Dr. Eric Berg interviews Professor Timothy Noakes on various myths on exercise, drinking water and consuming carbohydrates. If you are drinking too much water, you could end up depleting your sodium levels and creating a condition called hyponatremia and could even die. Its important to drink based on “thirst”. A high carbohydrate diet is not recommended to athletes because of the amount of damage it creates in the arteries and other tissues.
Hey guys, I have another special guest, Professor Noakes from South Africa, South African Scientist, Professor Exercise Science in Sports Medicine, author of many books that I have. I am really excited to talk to you today so welcome from South Africa. What time is it over there right now?
Professor Noakes: Yes, Passed 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
Dr. Berg: Oh wow! And what day is it?
Professor Noakes: I have to think it’s Thursday.
Dr. Berg: Okay got it, great! So, I want to first talk about you at one point promoted the high carb diets for awhile right? Tell me a little bit about that and then, I think what change your mind?
Professor Noakes: So I started running in the late 1960’s early 70’s and I started my physiology training in mid-1970 and that was one of the first years that the new theory arrives that muscle glycogen, carbohydrates in the muscle was the single effect to determining the athletic performance and that is how it was projected to all of us. So I am a young student studying physiology in medicine and I am running marathon and I discover this, this is the most exciting piece of information that I heard in the whole medical training. So I was started promoting this high carbohydrate diet in early 1970’s and I have been coursed adapted to that diet and I went to complete my medical training, I was surrounded by cardiologist. It was them telling us if you eat fat, you are gonna die. So I was gonna eat lots of carbohydrate and It was gonna make me run better well in fact, it made me run worse and I got fatter and progressively sicker. And then in 1981, my father was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and he died 10 years later. And eventually I discovered that I also had type 2 diabetes and I realized that I got 10 years to solve this problem out unless I am gonna die like he did. And that fortunately forced me to look very seriously into the what is going on and the evidence and I came across the book called “The New Atkins for the New You” written by Dr. Westman, Volek and Phinney and within two hours of reading that book I said, “Oh My Gosh, I am completely wrong for 33 years.”
