Is Keto More Effective for Seniors?

Big Picture Answer(s):

Keto may be more effective for seniors because they tend to be in poorer health and, therefore, have more benefits to gain. However, keto is also an excellent tool to maintain good health; so, it’s at least equally as important for younger people to adopt keto so that they can maintain their metabolic youth, despite an increasing chronological age.

Representative Research:

Neurodegenerative Diseases (Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s)
Aging is associated with a decrease in the brain’s ability to use glucose, as measured by FDG-PET scan. This is known to contribute to the development of neurological diseases, like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease primarily strike people over the age of 65. The older you are, the more likely you are to develop the disease.

Newport M. et al. Alzheimer’s and Dementia 2015,

This is a case report of a 63-year-old man with Alzheimer disease. When he was put on a ketogenic diet, he exhibited a rapid improvement in mood, social ability, and memory. He also exhibited significant improvements on cognitive tests and his neurodegeneration stopped progressing.

Vanitallie T. et al. Neurology 2005,

In this feasibility study, 5 patients with Parkinson’s disease – the second most common and fastest growing neurodegenerative disease in the world – were put on a ketogenic diet for one month. By the end of the month, all participants exhibited a 20-80% improvement in their symptoms, as measured by the standard clinical test of Parkinson’s disease severity (UPDRS).

Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is associated with age ( and underpins many chronic diseases, including diabetes and obesity.

Ebbling C. et al. British Medical Journal 2018,

In this study, 162 people were randomly split into three groups, a high-carb group, a medium-carb group, and a low carb group. The diets of all three groups were initially isocaloric, but were calorie adjusted over the 20-week study to maintain the participants’ body weights. Not only did the research find that eating lower carb increases energy expenditure, but they found that the effect was more pronounced in those who were initially more insulin resistant. For example, among those who completed the study, those who were insulin sensitive to start burned 135 more calories if they ate low carb as compared to high carb, whereas those who were insulin resistant to start burned 478 more calories if they ate low carb as compared to high carb. In short, low carb was beneficial for everyone, but the most beneficial for those who started out as more insulin resistant, likely because they had more ground to make up (and in the general population, insulin resistance can increase with age).

Mitochondrial dysfunction

Mosconi L. et al. Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease 2011,

Because elderly people will have accumulated more mitochondrial damage overtime, it’s especially important that they protect their mitochondria with a ketogenic diet. However, since mitochondria do have their own DNA and get passed directly from mother to child in the mother’s egg (the father’s sperm doesn’t donate mitochondria) the effects can be transgenerational! In the study linked above 36 cognitive normal healthy adults were compared with respect to their activity of the final complex in the electron transport chain (complex IV/COX). Complex IV/COX gets damaged in Alzheimer’s disease, so the hypothesis was that individuals with a maternal family history (MH) of Alzheimer’s disease would have a decrease in COX activity relative to individuals with no family history (NH) or a paternal family history (PH). As you can see, this is exactly what they found! These results are remarkable because they (1) follow on the well-established knowledge that mitochondrial damage accumulates with age and contributes to disease, (2) suggest that some of use may start off with slightly damaged mitochondria, so it’s important for everyone to manage mitochondrial health, and (3) suggest that the choices we make (if you’re a woman) when we are young before we have kids not only affect our health but the health of our future children!

  2. Are you serious about a full can of sardines away? That's really hard to do when even a single one is tough. Ugh…

  3. I am 62 years old. My knees are shot due to weight gain and unbeknownst to me, slight femur deformation. I had steroid shots given directly to my knees. I had night sweats and fever. I don't want to do that again. Then I saw one of Thomas' vids and it made so much sense. I literally went through carb withdrawals with migraine and feeling horrible. I know my body was double-reacting to the steroids and carb withdrawal. In 3 days I have dropped 6 lbs and I feel so good. I need to lose about 30 more pounds but with Thomas' great videos I am feeling hope. Was truly feeling at the bottom due to knee pain, fatigue and general lack of strength. Thank you, Thomas! And to everyone here, thank you for your supportive comments. 😊

  4. I’m 52 & are just looking for energy and bring the little gut down and just get out of depression. I barely eat or sleep since I hit 50 it’s been this way 🤒🥴I hope this works. I can’t even walk more than 15 minutes, when I used to walk 5 miles . I’ll keep you posted.

  5. Thanks for doing videos on people over 50, im 57, my problem is that I hate any fish and I guess I should take a omega 3 supplement??

  6. 71/disabled Vet with mobility issues and a lifetime of being overweight. Constant pain (22+ surgeries) fused lumbar and left leg. Started keto 10/01/21 and have had lost 30 lds so far (233lds start now around 200) with a goal of 165ld for optimum health. I struggle on occasion and hunger is always taunting me to cheat. I stay the course and push through. In fact I have a coffee mug with just those words on it that I use for my green tea. My best advise. The alternative is pain…sadness and death. I chose happiness and life. That helps keep me focused and on track. Be patient. It takes did getting fat.

  7. Love your videos, by any chance can you do an intermittent fasting for somebody who's pre-diabetic. My sister's and I are all very active in the gym, ocean outrigger paddling and at the gym. I would like to ask your help reference my sister we're all in our late 60s however. When we work out in the morning within a half hour to 45 minutes she will start shaking doesn't matter what sport we're doing as soon as she has some sugar whether it's a fruit. Or the GUi, she gets stabilized. if she doesn't get something in her then it gets worse and she'll block out. Is there something that she should be doing so she can try the intermittent fasting. She tries to eat something before we work out but she really wants to try the intermittent fasting.
    Thank you

  8. Thank you for this video. I am 66 and am in good shape and love weight lifting. I was looking into fasting and thank you I will not be doing the crazy long ones, I am sticking to 12 hour fast which is so civilized. BIG SIGH OF RELIEF!!!

  9. Turmeric is so good in you seasoning and spice mix for chicken. It's amazing if you're trying to get that turmeric in!

  10. Thomas – so I watched your video on burning fat when over 50 and it said that one should fast 20-24 hours a day, yet in this video you say 12-14 hours…not trying to be facetious, I’m just looking for clarification…I usually make it every day until 2 or 3, and then stop eating at 8…that is how I have been doing IF for the last 3 weeks when I started…I’m 51…is that the right way to attack it?

  11. This seems like so many pills, is there any thing you can take that has an all in one supplement?

  12. I know you have a number of videos for people over 50. It would be great if you put together an over-50 series. Can you include a vegan-keto over 50 video? (We want to include all the challenges! 🙂

  13. Thomas I've been studying plastic in the water and all fish even the wild-caught is got different kinds of plastic craft in their flesh from eating smaller fish

  14. I heard a few years back dr. Russell Blaylock said if you mixed turmeric with a healthy oil you get a 800% better absorption rate with turmeric

  15. I just watched this video. Thank you for the information. Do I need to worry about mercury with the fish? Also, is there a way to rebuild the telomere ends?

  16. Thomas I am 72 years old and taking some of your recommended supplements. Do you have a recommend source that are not made in
    China. My wife and I do not trust anything from that country. Thanks Peter

  17. In this video you say if you are over 50 to fast 12-14 hours and in this video How to Burn Fat over Age 50 – Comprehensive Guide, you say if you are over 50 to fast 20 hours. I'm confused. Can you clarify which one is correct?

  18. Please HELP… Hi I'm 54 and started my Keto lifestyle plan today. I've watched this video many times. I had to take notes, so much great information. I have a question regarding increasing protein. I need help ensuring I'm consuming the right amount of protein to keep my body in Keto. Is the 1g to 1.5g of protein per KG of body weight referring to the body weight you are now and adjust as you lose weight or is it referring to your body weight goal?

  19. thank you for these videos. i am 73 and found keto because i was frantic for a decent night's sleep. i did a lot of research and found you and a couple of others who do wonderful, informative videos. a bite at a time i learn what's what and just what to do about it. thank you.
