Diet. This is an interesting topic. As of lately, I’ve been seeing this come into
my life in so many different ways. I’ve seen it show up in my news feed and I’ve
always ignored it because I thought to myself, Snake Diet, Snake Oil, some goofy thing and
then, I also have had a lot of people sharing it with me and I never really went and followed
the links that they shared with me but a lot of people were asking my opinion of it. So finally, I clicked on one of those links
and it took me to The Doctors show where the founder of The Snake Diet appeared on The
Doctors show. And so, what I want to do in this video is
first of all, kind of do a brief overview of what The Snake Diet is but then give some
practical thoughts on The Snake Diet and the appearance of the founder on The Doctors show
because it was incredibly interesting, the whole dialogue that took place. Now, when we look at The Snake Diet, essentially
what it is, is a prolonged fasting technique, okay? So, what the founder is he has people start
with a 48 hour fast. Doing that 48 fast throws you into ketosis,
okay. From there, you cycle out to a low-carb diet
and then, from there you cycle back into another fast. This time, a 72 hour fast, and then basically
the idea behind this whole Snake Diet system is that if you have fat on your body then
you have energy sources to survive. So, what you do is, you keep fasting and there’s
some people who have been fasting for 10, 20, 30 plus days while doing The Snake Diet
and so, that’s the whole idea behind it, just to burn that fat off the body and start to
heal the body. Now, during The Snake Diet, when you’re following
the Snake Diet and fasting you drink something called Snake Juice, okay. So, Snake Diet has Snake Juice. What that basically is, is an electrolyte
balancing drink. Now, the next thing is that the diet advocated
is, keeping your eating windows small and then also fasting between meals. And so, when we look at this, a lot of it
sounds very familiar, right? One Meal A Day, eating windows small. Intermittent fasting, keeping your eating
windows small, fasting in general, doing a prolonged fast. We talk about how a seven-day water fast can
actually start to clean up those pre-cancerous cells in the body and really give you a lot
more chances for living a good quality life without disease in your future. So, a lot of this sounds very familiar. One of the big differences is, is that it
advocates a lot of prolonged fasting in order to just keep burning the fat off your body. I think it’s a very intense way of living. I think it’s a diet that is not very sustainable
for most people long term especially. And so, look at this overall, I don’t think
I would do it because it’s just not particularly what I am looking for, but it’s interesting
nonetheless and I think that there’s some really good concepts behind it. Now, the other thing that the diet had said
is that fasting is the only way to get fat off your body and I don’t believe that. I don’t think that’s true at all because you
can follow the ketogenic, you can do a lot of things to get that fat off your body where
they just really advocate fasting, and fasting and more fasting. And so, anyway, it’s really interesting. Now, one of the things I wanted to discuss
is, when the founder actually went onto The Doctor show and just give some practical thoughts
on that because I watched the video and initially I thought to myself, well this was so unfair
because they had the guy onto the show and the doctors just made him out to be a complete
dummy, really just took his whole diet and his whole system here and just said it’s dangerous,
it’s going to kill people and that people shouldn’t be doing it. The audience was behind the doctors, kind
of clapping when they made fun of the founder and so, anyway, they were throwing some different
cheap shots at him and I just didn’t really agree with it. But you know what, I didn’t feel that bad
for him after I watched some of his other videos because I realized he’s very abrasive
in his videos, he uses a lot of strong videos and so they probably thought he was going
to bring that to their show and they were probably just ready for him in that way. And, I also know that he probably could have
cared less of how they talked to him because he seems like he’s, you know, it wouldn’t
affect him at all and just seeing his personality. And so, one of the things I thought what really
unfortunate about the whole dialogue on the show is that there was no intelligent conversation
that came out of it. The doctors basically said this whole system
is stupid and dangerous and you shouldn’t be doing it but, they totally ignored the
fact that he really is advocating a lot of fasting which has a ton of health benefits,
talking about shortening your eating windows, and the one doctor had said to him, well you
know what, I’m ripped and they showed a picture of him and they said, I’m ripped and I eat
six meals a day, and then the founder had went back and said, if you were to shorten
your eating windows you could actually eat more. And so, anyway, he had tons of great points. I don’t think by any means he should be written
off as a dummy because I think he has a lot of intelligence behind his whole system here
and I think he’s an intelligent guy himself. It’s just that the doctors didn’t really give
him a chance. But the thing is, is that when you look from
his standpoint, the founder’s standpoint, he sees that he’s helping all these people
and all these incredible results. When you look from The Doctors standpoint,
us doctors actually are working with people who are sick all the time, dealing with real
issues, have a really deep understanding of the body and so, we can see how there’s so
much potential problems that come out of it. What about the kidneys? What about the liver? What about the organs in the body when doing
all this prolonged fasting? And so, I think there’s a lot of intelligence
behind here, I think that you just have to be careful when following something like this. I think that you have to be careful about
a lot of the information that you find online, there’s a lot of online health gurus that
have absolutely no health education at all and through their lenses they’re just helping
a lot of people and so, everything that they’re doing is good. However, from a doctor’s standpoint and having
a health education, you can see how some danger can come into it and a lot of the online health
gurus are just finding information and just processing it and then teaching on it but
not really having a full understanding as a doctor would who had been to school for
many years. Now, here’s the thing too, is that from The
Doctors standpoint they said where’s the peer reviewed double-blind studies, where’s the
research, right? Well, you know what? There’s a nation full of obese people. At some point, you just got to get the job
done, you know and when we look at The Snake Diet, there’s a ton of people who have incredible,
incredible results that have followed it, so the results are real but from The Doctors
standpoint I think that sometimes you have to be careful, you can’t just keep standing
back going, where’s the research, but yet like watching all these people dying from
obesity and all the conditions that come along with obesity. So, you know what, it’s really you have to
take and look at both side of the picture here, and you have to think to yourself, well
what really should be done here and so, in a lot of ways, I’m on the side of, well sometimes
you’ve just got to get the job done and that’s what Cole’s doing. But, from The Doctors standpoint, you also
have to be safe about it and so, that’s important as well because once again, the doctors deal
with very sick people all day long and a lot of, they understand how there could be some
potential problems that comes from this. So, what I want to know is, what your thoughts
