    There is a pressing need to get the facts checked from this video. There is no starvation mode in the body. Being a med student,I guarantee that no harm happens to the body. The body doesn't break it's own muscle,instead it sets off on a deeper ketogenic mode which even holds potential to cure psoriasis, T2D etc. It has healing powers.

    No that is scientifically incorrect, the blood can use glucose or fat for fuel and the body can make its own carbs. Go visit Dr. Bergs channel who knows more about heath than these guys do.
