    Key Take aways:
    16% of daily diet should contain proteins
    30% Fiber
    5% allowed for added sugars (not tied-up to fiber, e.g maple syrup, agave nectar) - Limit as much as you can.
    Exercise helps Maintain weightloss but not directly lead to weightloss. It is still important especially if protein intake is high (due to nitrogen build-up from protein metabolism injuring the kidneys).
    Don't overdo a specific diet or force it to someone because it can lead to Eating disorder.
    Fruit Juices are BAD as they are pure sugar and absorbed in the gut quickly, as opposed to eating fruits which triggers the whole process of digestion (chewing, swallowing, digesting and absorbing and so on). It's basically drinking high amount of Liquid sugar.
    FAT becomes dangerous when they start to leak out of the 'fat pockets' and reach the parts of the body where they're not supposed to be such as muscles and liver.
    His goal is to spread awareness about the importance of affordable healthy foods in curing obesity.

      but again,
      it depends.
      people who lift weights and focus on building muscle, will increase that protein level, lower fats and keep high carbs.
      one diet is not for everyone.

    This is an amazing podcast. I’m 52 and was told by my doctor that I had to lose weight because of my liver and if I don’t lose weight she would put me on medication. So I have been walking on a treadmill to get me active since my job is sedentary. I’ve learned so much during this conversation and feel much less confused. Thank you both.

    Great episode. My biggest pet peeve when it comes to a dietician or a doctors approach to advice for me to lost weight (I am overweight), is ignoring the person and only seeing the problem which assumes the answer. I don’t eat much, truly, I don’t, but the first and usually only advice given by these professionals is “portion control” and “eat less”. I’ve tracked what I’ve eaten for a week and the “ideal caloric intake” for the average female of my age is more than what I would eat in a day unless I eat fast food. No one has listened when I’ve stated how little I eat and the foods I eat. It’s assumed I’m lying. I think this episode has opened my eyes to how my body may perform a bit differently than the average female of my age. Definitely going to look into the genetics and research the foods that MY body needs and craves to survive. Thank you for the eye opener.

      Yes. I worked in a cardiometabolic clinic as a clinician. Some patients who were obese only ate 500 calories in a day. The restriction over te reset their metabolism to a lower set point in their basal metabolic rate. It’s complicated. Weight loss is better achieved over a longer, gradual span of time. It’s always down to diet. Exercise is for the brain, and the muscle built helps burn calories even at rest, however it is diet that makes a difference. Doctors don’t know much about nutrition. Heck, some dieticians don’t know your body can use ketones for fuel. Which blows my mind. But I digress. It sounds like you need professional guidance and support. Dr Rhonda Patrick’s channel has lots of info on lifestyle, diet etc. Same with Dr Ken Berry, Dr Steve Phinney and so on. And of course Andrew Huberman, neurologist, exercise researcher.

      @Berth he said that the metabolism can change / be different in different people, such that out of the calories you eat, the ratio of what your body chooses to burn and what it chooses to store can vary. It's a "hard pill to swallow", but that does mean that it's not as simple as calories in calories out. Some people eat and then have so much energy from it, ie a lot of it is available to burn. Others eat and still feel fatigued, and the calories go into building or maintaining fat (or muscle). It's a common and oversimplified assumption that 2 people eating the same meals but being different weights could only mean that one of them is having cheat meals.

    I've spent years listening to people talk about food, diet, exercise, and everything else linked to losing weight. I realized that everyone is an expert in some way because people achieve their goals in different ways. I tried to chase calories and workout goals, but they were temporary. Nothing could last more than a year or two. This is insane, I realized; we're on the wrong boat.
    Then, for various reasons, I shifted gears and began studying Buddhism. Buddhism encouraged mindfulness, minimalism, and thoughts about detachment. It helped me in transforming my relationship with my emotions, appetites, attachments, and food. I left Instagram.
    Now I eat for nutrition rather than pleasure. I no longer take pictures of food and I no longer praise the food. It's only food.
    Since then, I've constantly reduced excess weight, and for the first time, I've shed man boobs. I'm also sleeping better now. I strongly advise everyone to modify their connection with eating and exercise, and everything will be different.

      @El Harris You are forgiven but I don’t believe this has anything to do with ego I am just trying to be a better Christian I have nothing against meditation etc and I am trying to change my habits by meditation etc and I know Buddhism shares the same practices as Christianity but if I practice Buddhism instead of Christianity I am practically worshipping another God even if I denounce the God and I could probably do all the things that Buddhism has to offer without Buddhism although the Buddhism faith probably helps, don’t take me for a guy that would have burnt “witches” at a stake; I understand, I just don’t want to take part in anything pagan (don’t mention Halloween) and again I just want to try to be a better Christian for a change.

      @Asiangoose90ti just because you study a religion doesn't mean that you are practicing or following it. It means you are loving and open enough to listen to what other fellow humans are saying. You don't have to follow it but you may realise something that will improve your understanding of Christianity. Mindfulness,minimalism and detachment are not alien thoughts to Christianity. Perhaps you should follow the Christian tradition of trying to understand your brothers and sisters instead of allowing your ego to take over and control what you can and can't do. Not to try and bully you. I really should keep my thoughts to myself however feel I I would be irresponsible to the whole of humanity if I didn't say anything. Forgive me if I am misunderstood and I can try to be better and beter everyday.

    If you struggle with food, and can afford, please see a registered dietitian you like (a specialist for your problem). They will help you with personalised diet, lifestyle and behaviour changes after listening to your issues - and explain complex nutrition information based on evidence. Just like Giles did. He is actually a honorary president of British Dietetic Association (UK) and does a lot of events with BDA. Great interview! Very sad to hear about the awful comments others posted about how he looks like! Which was ironic as you discussed weight stigma! Thanks,

    I am 100% agree with Dr Yeo. The quality of food matters. I looked at what people in the "Blue Zone" areas eat for ideas. Liked recipes from mediterranean countries. Ate more veg, oily fish, pulses, seeds and fermented food. Didn't restrict. I lost 50kg over a year. I walked, did yoga and weight training to get fitter. I changed how I viewed food. Didn't beat myself up if I had a slice of cake. Because my weight loss was not linear. I focused on what food made me feel better. What is sustainable for me. What people need to realise is how personalised weight loss and getting healthier is. There is no 1 solution. You have to make the effort to find out what works for you.

    I‘m listening and I‘m just finishing a „calorie counting“ chapter. As someone who did it successfully, I have a couple of points to add. First to a Domino pizza thing: Yes, you can theoretically eat anything as long as your calorie intake is on point, BUT if you eat domino pizza, you’re probably going to have to skip a whole meal to even out so if you really want to manage a diet by calorie counting, you’ll have to eat better or starve. Since I cannot starve, I actually started eating better quality food that made me both full and satisfied without going over a calorie limit. It also ended up being most protein then fat and least carb diet by default. Second thing: I used and app to help and it actually offered options for how you food is prepared and adjusted calories for it. So 100g cooked or baked or fried potatoes didn’t have the same anount of calories. What I liked most about calorie counting the way I did it is focusing on weekly intake instead of daily so if I, for example, had a piece a cheesecake (basically a whole meal worth of calories) I would balance it over the rest of the week and wouldn’t have to starve at all or feel guilty. I didn’t have a cheat day or anything, just, if a “bad” meal happened cause I craved it, it got balanced out by the rest of my diet. Also, the longer I lasted, the less cravings I got cause sugar addiction goes away and I learned to judge calories on my plate just by looking at it so I stopped needing to measure everything all the time. It’s a learning curve, but once learned, it stuck with me.

    Great interview!! My advice as a 64 year old woman. Do not ever slow down. All my life I was at a great weight. I had a job that was very physically taxing. I looked great untill I hit about 55. I was able to retire early and made the biggest mistake of my life. After being on my feet for so many years I decided to sit down in front of a computer for a year and do nothing. HUGE mistake. While sitting in front of computer I was snacking. Next thing I knew I was over weight and could hardly move. My doctor asked me what on earth happened to me? He told me then, that one of the worst things anyone could ever do is retire. He said more people have heart attacks the first year after retirement. So here I am now, very over weight. Take my advice. Never stop moving. If you must retire, find something to replace that activity with.

I had severe anorexia i was basically at deaths door i had refeeding syndrome and i did finally recover but only by ..sleep walking 😅 i started sleep walking to the fridge and eating during the night. I do that to this day if i've eaten in a deficit i find evidence of sometimes up to 4 trips to the fridge a night. Ive also eaten things like toothpaste 😅I also noticed my hunger signals are now unberable if im in a deficit...sometimes i've cried from how hard they are to ignore which i NEVER had before the anorexia or even during it! Im at a healthy weight but it's like an entire bulletproof systems been created by my brain to make sure it never happens again! I think our bodies are smarter then we give them credit for.

    As an ''all or nothing'' kinda person, who struggles to find balance in anything, I find that fasting is the best diet for me. If I try starting the day with a large breakfast? Then I've opened the door to overeating before the end of the day, and increase my chances of craving sugar or binging. Fasting, to me anyways, is just a much easier way to control my caloric intakes.

      @Audrey Delacour you don’t grow out of addiction you stop the use or action of the substance or action and manage the addiction you are still predisposed to any addiction in all forms for your entire life where some people can use and do any action without ever having the risk of addiction. Addiction is your brain not you using a substance. A type 2 diabetic can change the way they eat and manage their diabetes and treat it to the point they are in remission you still have diabetes for life you are just in remission so it isn’t effecting your blood sugar levels at that point. If you choose to eat sugar everyday it may not effect you for a month it may not for a year but your diabetes will come out of remission and it will effect your blood sugars again. If you have ITP from an illness or a vaccine. Your platelets drop and will make you start to bleed to death internally externally. When they successfully treat it with immunoglobulin, transfusions, medications to the point that your platelets are level without anything you are in remission for the disease but every time you get sick, hormone fluctuation, vaccines, etc. you have the chance of coming out of remission because you still have the life long disease it just isn’t active at the time. When you have cancer and it gets treated you are in remission so that’s when they say “cancer free” but you are never actually cancer free you are in remission and have to get checked for life because your disease can become active again at any time. Addiction when you find sobriety and abstinence you can put yourself into remission as in the disease isn’t effecting your body currently but can come back in any form of addiction because it is the disease in your brain. It is life long but you can be in remission for the rest of your life so it’s not a disease you have to die from. So the sugar, the illness/vaccine/hormones, whatever caused the cancer, the drugs/alcohol/sex/shopping/exercise/eating/porn/etc. isn’t the disease itself it is a contributing factor to the illness showing itself. So you saying an addict can just use normally the rest of their life is false the could learn to function with their addiction (but that addiction is still there) but then you have to ask yourself if they were doing fine and not an addict anymore why did they go back to using drugs to begin with? If you don’t think they are an addict ask them to quit again. It shouldn’t change their mood, behaviour at all, there should be no resistance, excessive thoughts, cravings, there should be no hesitation from them … but there will be… I’m sorry if you honestly believe it is something that can be cured and not put into remission because of someone first hand in your life. Like genuinely actually sorry not condescendingly.

    Even though this is almost 2 hours I ate this up (pun intended 😊). The balanced, non-exclusionary approach of Dr.Yao is a breath of fresh air in a polarized space.
    I had a similar experience to the host - a few years back my body lost the ability to digest wheat-based products. I only realized the cause through an elimination diet, after a year of inconclusive doctor visits and torturing my co-workers with seriously stinky farts (and other unpalatable side effects which I will not mention here). I was shocked because I was eating bread etc. All my life. I eventually built my tolerance up with the help of probiotics and slowly increasing wheat consumption. I would love to find out the cause of this mysterious, though thankfully temporary, intolerance. Regardless, the moral of my story is, understand your diet and try natural solutions. They may lead to better results than doctors and pills.

    Eat loads of chicken and veggies for lunch / a decent egg omelette
    dinner - No rubbish but chili con carne as an example.
    I did it all on a budget.

    The way a physician described it to me - your body’s current weight (whatever it is) is your base weight. When you lose weight - let’s say 50lbs - in order for your brain to accept that new weight as its base weight, you would need to maintain it for about 2 - 3yrs for the reason Dr. Yeo described in this discussion.

      I can vouch that my set point seems to have permanently (unless I do something intentional to force weight gain) lowered once I kept my weight stable at a lower weight for a few years. Granted, I did suffer while my body was adapting.

      @kskskskks Hi, thanks for thinking of this. I had my thyroid checked a few years ago and there is a nodule on it but my blood work seems okay and they didn't think it would be having an impact. I do have pcos and fibromyalgia which certainly don't help weight loss but shouldn't be this much of a match for determination. I've recently found out that a clinic near me does metabolic testing but it's expensive, however it is my intention to see them and hopefully understand what is happening and what I can do about it. I honestly believe I've just slowly adapted because I was morbidly obese to start with and keep ending up eating far too little if I stop tracking every single day. I'm currently eating 1500kcal a day. Any more and I gain, any less and I start having skin and gut issues and muscle pain and I still don't lose weight. I've seen a PT a few times recently and I'm just working towards additional fitness and reducing stress. I haven't mentioned this hear yet but my weight problem became really bad in my 20s due to not being able to walk for about 10 months after having my son. I was told I should never ride a bike again but recently that's something I've started doing to add variety. I'm at least finding that I can do a lot more than I ever used to, regardless of girth. SOME of my plateau may be muscle gain.

    At 60, I have been reborn!! I literally cleaned my house listening to this whole podcast! LOL!! I have never heard anything more practical, non-preachy and sensible in my life regarding the food we eat. Thank you so much Dr. Yeo for helping me enter my third chapter. I DO want to walk those damn stairs for the next 20 years of my life. Resistance training it is and here is to a happier and non punishing relationship with food. I would, however like to mention that exercise can improve mental health and increase endorphins, so, just as you mentioned, exercise alone may not make huge differences on the scale (if you do not eat in a more healthy way), it can improve mental health and ones outlook on life.

    I was on a vegan diet and dealing with orthorexia in 2013 and the feeling I remember having the most was fear. I was afraid of "chemicals" and all the "bad" stuff in my food and trying to eat "clean" so I wouldn't get sick. I also had significant body dysmorphia and thought I was overweight even though I was at a normal healthy weight.

    Such a gr8 podcast. Although I’m pretty clued up on my diet and exercise, I learnt a lot from this gr8 speaker. I agree that not every diet will suit everyone. As a busy professional, I try and manage 14-18 hours IF no breakfast and consume mostly a healthy plant based diet..having had weight issues for years and following this plan in the last 3.5 years have dropped my weight from 210 to 150 lbs and bmi from 30 to 20 and maintained this now..I do a full gym workout once a week..if I have time I’ll do long walks in the week..but I didn’t know b4 this podcast that one’s metabolic rate lowers end of the day…now, either I’ll have to finish eating earlier or do exercise at this time to keep topped up..also, I agree that calories are BS and it’s about the quality of macros I’m consuming..I’m exploring more veg based protein now and I enjoy learning more about nutrition even at 54 I think I have lots to learn..😊 I think variety and moderation is key but don’t restrict things you like!? I love sweet and fried snacks ..food is the joy of life..but I need to counter that with more exercise or IF hours if I choose to consume such items..because I know my body well enough to know that I’ll pile on the pounds..don’t want that as extra weight makes me feel sluggish, ruins all previous weight loss work and prevents me from fitting into smaller clothes!? No chance..my IF plant based diet is working a treat and I’ll carry on for the rest of my life now ✅ ..feel much better no longer consuming animal protein..we should eat without fear but be more conscious about what we are consuming..my gut health is much more improved compared to 3-4 years ago..diet is a never ending conundrum thanks Stephen for gr8 content and speakers 🙏👏☑️

    I am diagnosed gluten intolerant (but not coeliac) by a doctor specialised in gastroenterology. And yes, I did lost 25 lbs over a year after banning gluten, without exercices, the most notable change in my food was replacing pizza by steak and French fries (but I have been working to adopt some Mediterranean diet dishes and ingredients even before that, it's not like my eating habits were catastrophic). What did I take from the experience? Three years after, I still haven't taken the weight back yet.
    My theory is when your metabolism is stressed with food that doesn't work for it, it will store fat in pure panic. If your diet is too nutriment poor, it will store fat in pure panic. Obesity is always a symptom. Then, I have been experimenting with Mediterranean diet for over 10 years, but it's hard to do without gluten, so I mixed and matched with Japanese traditional meal. I turned out, both have about the same basics even thought they are not structured the same. Other traditional cuisine are probably working about the same, but I'm not familiar enough to tell. Although traditional Indian cuisine looked promising when I checked for a vegetarian friend.
    About exercice, there were moments in my life when doing 2 to 3 hours of exercice a week were enough to lose 2 to 3 lbs a month without any change to the diet, but other time when enforced 3 hours exercice plus walking would barely keep my weight steady (I started about the same weight both time). If you need to work out like a olympic athlete to lose any weight, it's because your metabolism is in panic fat storing mode. Something in your diet is either missing or messing with the rest, you need to find what it is. It would be handy to have a list and protocole of what could be responsible and how to test it out, but no such a thing exist.

    The only reason why I've stayed on keto for years, intermittently since I alternate with paleo, is because I developed food intolerances. The fact that I can't eat certain foods and I had to adjust my macros to stay functional is what made keto sustainable, I have no other way of eating at the moment. It took time to stop having cravings, mood swings, to start understanding if I was or not hungry or just tired, but I just got used to it. I would love to binge on a pizza and I would do it if it wasn't because it makes me horribly sick.

    So glad I came across this podcast. Dr Giles had been saying the same thing as my doctor friend who taught me the proper way to lose weight through proper food eating & correct resistance exercising. I'm from Malaysia.
    Basically Dr Giles's expertize had reinforced 100% of what I was told to do. I can vouch what Dr Giles's method/advice/warning is legit and achievable. There was a point, I was trying to be smartarse, modifying diet program and got me end up a bad medical report. lol... Keto diet is not sustainable, High protein diet is dangerous as it put stress on the kidneys (just as Dr Giles warned). Weight ratio should be 1:2 [meat: fiber] is a general rule of thumb.
    P/s: 1) An apple a day keeps a doctor away, whereas a bottle of juice a day keeps medicine close to your heart. 😂🤣
    2) Veganism is for the rich, cause you need suppliment added into your meal; when meat has vitamins & trace elements the body needed. Besides we don't have cow stomach. Our digestive system is designed to break down meat items, not fiber.
    3) Dr Giles, reducing meat eating is easily achievable. Instead of suggesting take 1 day off eating meat, you can suggest them to reduce the amount per meal. That way, it's also inline with healthy weight loss dieting.

    I totally had orthorexia! Now I'm paying the consequences for that. I'm slowly coming out of it. Thankfully. YES! there is TMI! And I totally came to the point of saying exactly that! I cannot eat anything! Low sugar yes. Less meat yes. More veggies yes! Was the weight you gained muscle? I think front loading is more beneficial bc it helps metabolically especially for your blood sugar stabilization, which triggers other hormones, one being melatonin, if I remember correctly, potentially causing sleep issues. We always find a way to ruin things, like keto. TYPES of calories matter, IMHO. A 1K cal salad is better than 1K cal from a sleeve of Oreos. I think that it depends on what we are eating to trigger issues with gluten, and the gut issues.Thank you for speaking on body positivity... you nailed it. Thank you so much for being so neutral and just stating facts on most topics.

    My wife was a lifelong migraine sufferer....talking 5 or 6 days a week, every week. Based on what I learned about gluten from Wheat Belly and Grain Brain, she decided to cut out gluten to see if there were any noticable effects. She almost never gets a migraine or any headache for that matter anymore. My point, not all gluten issues are solely digestion related. There can be a lot of other issues that you won't know about unless you try cutting gluten out of your diet.

      @Logan Media Yes, caloric intake has increasesd because calories somewhat correlate with mass intake, but calories are far too inaccurate for the avg. person to calculate. It forces them to significantly under eat, resulting in more problems. That's the issue from the onset, they are inaccurate, it's very simple.
      Packaging can be out by some 20% either way. That's only the start of the problems. You also have the thermic effect of food, that adds another confounding factor. Even your own poo has calories in it.

    So basically my takeaway is you have to eat foods that take more processing to extract sugars, and it's pretty hopeless to think of losing a ton of weight with any type of 'diet' and should shift your entire eating and shopping habits to being healthier and keeping less food readily available.

    Keto with IF worked for me. Moderate exercise with Tai Chi (resistance) Six years ago, I went from 155 lbs down to 119 lbs. I'm 5'5. I went back to low-carb, and maintain right around 125 lbs. I am 5'5" tall and will be 60 in two months. I have low blood pressure and zero health issues. I'm working on building/maintaining muscle mass. Going keto and IF took away asthma, allergies, and swelling in my fingers. I've successfully kept the weight off for six years. I was thin for most of my adult life, but my weight slowly crept up, like a pound a year. So at 53, I went IF first and added in keto (both worked) because other ways of eating had failed. I love the fact on keto that because ghrelin doesn't seem to be produced in me, I never get hungry so eating a balanced healthy way is easy.

      Keto with IF will work for everyone but people who aren’t fit can deny it all they want. i’m laughing all the way to the scale.

    I am really appreciating listening to the increasing frequency of relatively popular male podcasters talking openly about their concerns with weight gain and the dietary restrictions they impose on themselves as a means to address these concerns. This has largely been depicted as a female disposition, but I am learning that is far from reality. At least for the modern man (well represented by those who would be considered successful). This was fantastic nuanced discussion that underscores the importance of quality over quantity when it comes to nutrition, as well as the diversity of the types of food that can provide quality nutrition.

    Very informative. My approach is quite simple for my own life which works for me as I know because I am myself, living in mine own reality.
    I eat simply, mainly because of the observed discomforts of bloat, and various other responses I have to delicious meals like fried foods and such, or like a delicious piece of chocolate cake, or donut.
    My daily diet usually consists of a breakfast cereal which is called THREE WISHES, which is made from 6 ingredients in order listed below.
    1. Chickpea
    3.pea protein
    4.organic can sugar
    5. Natural flavors
    6. Monk fruit
    1 serving of reduced fat milk, or even a water mixture along with a delicious coffee creamer which I love which uses coconut fat as it’s thickener.
    I eat 2 servings after working out for 2 hours 1 hour lifting 1 hour outdoor distance slow jog.
    That’s about 260-400 calories not that calories really matter.
    I feel fantastic after eating this after workout meal, and I don’t necessarily feel full or stuffed.
    Then I eat my delicious lunch which comprises of 1 chicken breast seasoned with pepper, soy sauce, and some minced garlic cooked in 1.5 servings of olive oil. I’ll usually eat 3-4 servings of peas cause I just love peas, and I’ll also eat a banana too.
    Dinner is usually a LARGE salad which I pour basic balsamic vinegar on top of and usually eat with 2 servings of croutons. I put 1 boiled egg and sliced carrots, onions, and whatever other vegetable I feel like on top of it.
    I workout EVERYDAY and my career has me working on my feet Sunday-Wednesday. So Wednesday night I like to have a delicious meal that I usually go out and buy, like at an Italian restaurant or something like that. Thursday I like to have some ice cream from DQ, and then Friday I enjoy eating at home until dinner and I’ll usually have a meal outside of home along with some Oreos before bed. Saturday I reset my diet and eat at home Saturday-Wednesday.
    I do this for 2 reasons, I ENJOY not being bloated all the time, and I also enjoy having healthy, regular bowel movements which makes my career that much more enjoyable!
    I’m a healthy weight, I feel healthy, and I love the way I look because of it. I enjoy an active lifestyle as it is such a GIFT and I don’t want to take my abilities to be active for granted because I know there are people who cannot be active due to disease or other issues.. I enjoy foods. I hope people can just enjoy their bodies and foods and just keep in mind that the biggest takeaway with food is to eat moderately and enjoy your life. Don’t eat out alllll the time. I usually only eat 2 meals out a week, and my meals that I prepare at home for myself only take about 30 minutes Total out of my day.
    Just be happy and build your relationship with healthy food options like vegetable, high fiber options and normal meats, alongside berrries, banana which are also large berries lol and stuff like that.
    I don’t smoke, or drink alcohol only because it makes me feel terrible the next day when I want to enjoy the outdoors, so I listen to my body and my doctor on these things. Good luck everyone :)

    This was in incredible interview. The part on exercise ties right into my own war on weight loss. The more intensity I would have in exercise, the harder the relationship with food. I learned to balance the effort and focus more on a healthy food relationship in terms of volume and nutrition and the weight started dropping far faster than working harder in the gym.

      @James C. I did not say it is easy to DO, but it is easy to understand. And recognizing the problem, and the goal, is really important and then you're already nearly halfway there. The other half is actually doing it, and it isn't easy. But there's no way around it if you want to live healthily.
