10 Instagram accounts to follow for keto and low-carb tips

There’s nothing quite like scrolling through a gorgeous Instagram feed full of food.

But if you’re trying to cut down on carbohydrates, it might make sense to limit the amount of drool-worthy cake and cookie photos. Luckily, there are plenty of Instagram accounts created solely for our viewing (and tasting) pleasure, to inspire those looking to try a new eating plan in the new year.

Cutting processed foods and carbs has helped plenty of people lose weight. Popular diets like South Beach and Whole30 keep lean proteins and fresh veggies centerstage. But a more extreme example of low-carb dieting is gaining popularity with the ketogenic diet which encourages adherents to eat higher-fat foods and protein (that’s a solid “yes” to eggs, steaks, bacon, butter and avocado). The diet advises followers to consume 60 to 80 percent of their calories from fat, 15 to 35 percent of calories should come from protein sources, and carbs should be kept at about 5 percent of one’s daily caloric intake. The rigid nature of the diet can be difficult for some to follow, so a lot of people turn to (where else?) social media for advice.

Frances Largeman-Roth

There are plenty of self-proclaimed “healthy-eating” accounts out there, so it’s important to always consult with a medical professional before embarking on any serious lifestyle changes.

“The great thing about social media is that it provides visual inspiration and can be helpful in getting people excited to make positive changes to their health,” Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN, nutrition expert and author of “Eating in Color,” told TODAY Food. “Just make sure that you’re checking in with a credible health professional before following any advice you see online.”

And while these popular accounts may offer unique recipes and trendy eating ideas, Largeman-Roth, cautions that going keto isn’t for everyone: “While it’s safe for most healthy individuals, it’s not appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or kids.”

These 10 accounts are full of new recipe inspiration for those looking to lose weight, cut carbs or just try something new . .. with some deliciously eye-catching photos, of course.

Low Carb Yum

Food blogger Lisa MarcAurele specializes in low-carb, gluten-free and keto-friendly foods. She’s been creating recipes since 2010 after she herself adopted a low-carb, low-sugar eating plan. Her motto “keep it simple” is evident in her recipes like baked zucchini chips (which is just three ingredients!) and a low-carb chicken soup recipe that can be made in a slow cooker.

The Delicious

This Instagram account is designed to help followers “eat beauty every day” and is managed by Sarah Gim, founder of TheDeliciousLife.com. The Delicious is filled with colorful recipes that utilize lots of fresh produce. Many of her posts provide easy swap tips for low-carb dieters, coupled with light-hearted, cheeky captions that are far from preachy. From eye-catching smoked salmon platters to shakshuka made with broccolini, chard, collards, kale, and avocado, there are plenty of refreshing takes on healthful eating.

Recipes like her Wild King Salmon with Wild Citrus and Herbs, got a ton of great feedback for being simple, beautiful and tasty.

Keto Karma

Suzanne Ryan, the author of “Simply Keto,” lost 120 pounds by sticking to a ketogenic diet plan and consuming very few carbs. Her Instagram account has nearly 250,000 followers and plenty of posts with advice that will make it simpler for beginners to get started.

In addition to posting recipes that are easy to make at home, she also shows keto-friendly foods she eats while dining out to help make the super strict diet seem a bit more accessible.

Halle Berry

In January 2018, the Oscar Award-winning actress told fans that she’d been following the ketogenic diet for years but encouraged people to think of it as a “lifestyle change” and not just a diet. In addition to following Halle Berry because she’s, well, Halle Berry, keto dieters or people who just want to try eating like one of the world’s most famous people will find plenty of inspiration. Her page is sprinkled with #FitnessFriday motivation tips, as well as some keto-devoted posts. In her stories, Berry often shares recipes crafted by her personal chef, Christina Shabatian.

On a recipe for Zucchini Pasta with Pesto, Berry wrote that it’s one the whole family can enjoy, “picky eaters included.”

Nom Nom Paleo

Michelle Tam, the award-winning food blogger behind this wildly popular feed (and growing empire), creates umami-packed dishes that are great for easy weeknight meals or fancier dinner parties. Not all of her recipes are super low in carbs but her ability to transform mundane staples like chicken breast or cauliflower rice is pretty unmatched.

Keto Connect

This page created by a keto-loving couple, gym partners, food bloggers and YouTubers provides new recipes weekly. Low-carb dieters who still want to enjoy dessert or those seeking simple tips to eating fewer carbs overall will enjoy Keto Connect’s approach.

“I love their enthusiasm and creativity,” said Largeman-Roth, “just remember that if you’re embarking on a diet overhaul like keto, you should talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian nutritionist first —don’t just rely on Insta wisdom.

“Thanks for this one guys, I’ve been looking for a good pecan recipe,” one pleased follower wrote on the account’s recipe for Pecan Chocolate Chip Muffins.

The Diet Doctor

This Instagram account is entirely devoted to “making low carb and keto simple” with hundreds of keto-approved recipes as well as meal plans. Some plans, even those filled with warm, hearty dishes to alleviate those winter blues, keep carb counts at 25 grams or less for the entire day.

Keto Guido (aka Vinny Guadagnino)

Former “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino is a hardcore keto fan — that means no more spaghetti tutorials with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford (unless it’s zoodles with that meat sauce). On his second, food-focused Instagram account, Guadagnino notes, “Not a medical expert. Just a guido who went Keto and never felt better.”

In addition to sharing plenty of before and after selfies, Guadagnino posts tons of photos of very, very simple homemade meals, ideas for eating out and keto-friendly snacks that he eats to keep himself satisfied throughout the day. He often responds to fans looking for more specifics on his diet, too.

“I’ve got to hand it to Vinny for calling out that he’s not a medical professional. But just keep in mind that celebrities and influencers may be getting endorsement deals for mentioning products on their feed,” advised Largeman-Roth.

Keto Adapted

This Instagram feed has lots of low-carb, high-fat meal ideas from around the web that aren’t just keto-friendly — many of them are actually beautiful. Who knew fat could do that? From a hearty breakfast pizza to homemade peppermint patties and grilled shrimp skewers, this page has something for everyone looking to cut down on carbs.

Fit Men Cook

Kevin Curry, the Texas-based author of the cookbook “Fit Men Cook,” posts tons of recipes for both men and women who are looking for low-carb foods and transformational food ideas, like healthier takes on hearty chilis, chicken nuggets (he uses quinoa for breading) and more. His 1.3 million followers frequently comment that he makes eating healthy “fun” and that his dishes are packed with flavor. Largeman-Roth also liked many of his recipes.

Curry also claims, “there’s no one on IG who can clean a kitchen faster than me” in a post that showed what actually goes in to a food shoot that involves prepping and cooking 24 dishes.

Influencer Abby Durlewanger’s Keto Lunch For Daughter Sparks Backlash: VIDEO

A mother demonstrating what she packs for her preteen daughter for lunch sparked concerns from the online community about the child’s diet.

“My 11-year-old daughter is keto,” proclaimed House of Keto influencer Abby Durlewanger in a TikTok video posted in June.

The popular low-carb diet has seen increasing endorsements from celebrities and influencers on social media.

But when it comes kids on the ketogenic—or “keto”—diet, doctors and health experts say more studies are required to determine if it is healthy for children and young teens.

In the clip, Durlewanger first packed a lettuce wrap with shredded chicken, cilantro-lime crema sauce and shredded cheddar cheese.

Next, she added a side of fruit consisting of blueberries, strawberries, and some leftover watermelon from a previous celebration over the holiday weekend as a “nice surprise.”

Durlewanger explained watermelon is typically not included as part of the family’s keto lifestyle because it has more carbs and sugar then they would normally eat but added “this is a nice treat and is something she will enjoy.”

To complete the lunchbox, she placed a hard-boiled egg and two slices of cheddar cheese inside.

“Our entire family eats this way,” she said, “including our 5-year-old, our puppies, and my husband.”

TikTokers had some serious questions after watching the video.









In response to the backlash, Durlewanger argued “it is entirely possible to be keto and lose absolutely no weight.”

She added it was “entirely possible to be keto and gain weight, or “stay absolutely the same.”

According to Harvard Health Publishing from Harvard Medical School, the ketogenic or “keto” plan “centers on fat, which supplies as much as 90% of daily calories.

Some parents have turned to the keto diet for their overweight children to lose some pounds and get healthy.

However, dieticians do not recommend the keto diet for children and young teens because “it seriously limits carbohydrates, and children need carbs to be mentally and physically active,” according to Children’s Health.

Registered dietitian Kathy McManus, director of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital said:

“The keto diet is primarily used to help reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures in children. While it also has been tried for weight loss, only short-term results have been studied, and the results have been mixed.”

“We don’t know if it works in the long term, nor whether it’s safe.”

Jameela Jamil wants influencers to stop promoting the keto diet – Celebrity

Are you looking for a fast-track solution to shed that extra weight? Are you considering the heavily social media-promoted keto diet to achieve your dietary goals? Actor and activist Jameela Jamil is here to tell you why that’s a really bad idea. ..

“Celebrities and influencers. Please stop pushing the keto diet (on)to people who do not need to follow the diet for medical reasons,” Jamil began in the message. “It can create all kinds of disturbances for people’s bodies, (including their vital organs), and they do not have the same access to healthcare that you do.”

She also took this opportunity to point out the hypocrisy in ‘before-after’ pictures, stating that the latter is obviously the result of extreme editing.

“Stop with the (often bulls***) before and afters (especially the ones where in the ‘after’ your trousers are higher/your bra is more supportive/your hair and makeup is done/you’re smiling/the lighting is better/you’re using airbrushing) during the predatory time for women especially around their weight.”

Addressing the public, she also debunked myths related to the keto diet in general.

“To anyone seeing these posts about keto and 2-week weight loss, it’s water weight, not real fat loss, and take it from someone who did every diet under the SUN, the weight comes back thick and fast and then some as soon as you reintroduce carbs,” she revealed.

“Most humans need carbs,” The Good Place actor added, before telling fans to “stay away” from fad diets. “If you really want to change your body to whatever, please do it for the right reasons, the right way, slowly, not guided by some newfound thin-fluencer and their fast weight loss guru/predator.”

She also included several screenshots of what appeared to be direct messages from fans, who shared their horror stories following the diet.

From pancreatitis to gall-badder removal and brain level imbalances, the after-effects shared by the people should give everyone pause.

“Don’t take my word for it. Just read every medical journal article you can find on it. Learn the history of it, and if you fit that history, if you need it medically, I hear it can be extraordinary for certain serious health issues,” Jameela added.

“But if not … you are needlessly risking creating health issues because our world not only obsesses over weight loss, but how fast we can do it. That is not sustainable and it’s designed to fail so that you stay on the diet merry-go-round forever,” she said.

Encouraging a healthier relationship with nutrition that doesn’t involve binaries of good and bad, the star hoped her fans would be grateful for the food on their table. A much-needed reminder for all of us.

Influencer’s Keto Lunchbox for Her Child Sparks Outrage on TikTok

“My 11-year-old daughter is keto,” says House of Keto influencer Abby Durlewanger in a TikTok video posted in June. The video shows viewers what Durlewanger packs her daughter for lunch.

The meal consisted of a lettuce wrap, berries, watermelon—which Durlewanger says will be a “nice surprise” because it has more “carbs and sugar” than the family normally eats—a hard-boiled egg and two slices of cheddar cheese.

“Our entire family eats this way,” says Durlewanger, “including our 5-year-old, our puppies, and my husband.”

According to Harvard Health Publishing from Harvard Medical School, the keto diet is a low-carb diet that “centers on fat, which supplies as much as 90% of daily calories. ” Durlewanger’s lunchbox seems to follow the typical guidelines of keto: fruits and vegetables are restricted to berries and leafy greens.

“This is for weight loss purposes,” says TikTok user @Rutherfordsistaz in a comment on Durlewanger’s video. “Not sure kids should be on this, actually I am sure they shouldn’t be.”

Durlewanger responded with a video, stating that “it is entirely possible to be keto and lose absolutely no weight.” She claims that those on the keto diet can gain weight, or even maintain their weight.

Dietician Kathy McManus from the Department of Nutrition at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston told Harvard Health Publishing that a ketogenic diet is “primarily used to help reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures in children.”

She also said that although people use the diet for weight loss, “We don’t know if it works in the long term, nor whether it’s safe.” Other risks associated with keto include nutrient deficiency as well as liver and kidney problems.

With the exception of a comment from TikTok user @Heather_May that states that viewers “would be mad” if Durlewanger fed her children “lunchable and junk,” many of the top comments on Durlewanger’s video question why an 11-year-old is on the keto diet in the first place. One viewer even threatened to call CPS.

Durlewanger also makes claims about the keto diet on her Instagram account.

In a recent post, she reassured her followers that those with “little or no access to food” don’t gain weight.

“If you’re not losing weight, you’re eating more than you should be,” she said.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Abby Durlewanger.

Mum divides TikTok by putting daughters, 5 and 11, on keto diet

A TikTok influencer has divided opinion by revealing what she gives her young daughters for lunch.

Abby, who goes by the username @houseofketo, dedicates her social media account to sharing recipes and tips on following a ketogenic lifestyle.

Ketogenic, or “keto”, diets are low-carb and high-fat (similar to the Atkins for those who remember it). The idea is to gain as few calories as possible from carbohydrates in a bid to encourage your body to break down protein and fat for energy instead.

According to health website Webmd: “It’s important to note that the ketogenic diet is a short term diet that’s focussed on weight loss rather than the pursuit of health benefits.

Therefore, some TikTokers voiced their concern after Abby revealed that she and her whole family follow the strict regime.

In a video that has racked up more than 7.6 million views on the platform, the mother-of-two told her 525,000 followers: “My 11-year-old’s keto and this is what I made her for lunch.”

The clip shows her filling up a lunchbox with the dishes of the day, which include a lettuce wrap with shredded chicken and cheddar cheese, a handful of strawberries and blueberries, and a hard boiled egg.

Abby also includes a “nice surprise” for her daughter: some leftover slices of watermelon.

She explains: “Typically we don’t include watermelon in our regular everyday ketogenic lifestyle” because it contains “more carbs and sugar than we would normally eat.”

However, she adds: “But this nice treat is something she will enjoy.”

Abby ends the clip by confirming: “Our entire family eats this way, including my five-year-old, our puppies and my husband.

The TikToker revealed the entire contents of her daughter’s lunchbox


A number of fellow TikTokers praised the food for looking healthy and tasty, with one writing: “I would have loved that over school lunch!”

But others raised concerns over whether it was an appropriate meal plan for a growing child.

“Why is your daughter keto? Health concerns? Or are we projecting societal beauty standards onto an 11-year-old?,” asked one.

“Is it safe for a child’s body to enter ketosis?” asked another, referring to the state when your body doesn’t have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy so instead burns fat.

And a third said: “It concerns me that your five and 11-year-old daughters are keto. Every doctor and nutritionist I have ever talked to have said that keto is a diet only.”

And a fourth said: “Registered dietician here. You need carbs. Good ones. Know how to portion them. Keto is a no, please don’t do keto I beg y’all.”

And while Abby couldn’t possibly reply to the 10,300 comments her post invited, she did have something to say to one user who implied she had forced her family to follow her regime.

“So you’re keto and the others have no choice?,” they asked.

Abby responded dryly: “Did your kids get a choice about being addicted to sugar?”

Abby addressed viewers by defining what ‘diet’ means


In a follow-up video, Abby answered another question asking: “Why is your 11-year-old on a diet?”

Looking straight into the camera, she said: “If your child is not on a diet, what is wrong with you?”

She continued: “We have to feed our kids, I know they want to eat all the time but we literally have to feed them – your child has to be on a diet.

“A diet is just food or drink that you consistently consume – habitual nourishment. A diet is not synonymous with weight-loss, a diet is not even synonymous with restriction.”

She ended the clip by saying: “We never use the word ‘diet’ in our videos.”

Still, plenty of viewers remained unconvinced, and just wanted to see her kids eating some bread.

These Keto Channels on YouTube Will Boost Your Knowledge

In 2018, there are numerous ways to learn more about trends, hobbies, and lifestyles that resonate with your own. These educationalg sources of the modern era include podcasts, social media outlets, and good old fashion internet research. But one site takes the cake when it comes to offering a one-stop-shop for learning, entertainment, and fun: YouTube. Find out how you can use YouTube to seriously upgrade your knowledge on the keto diet.

How Can You Use YouTube?

Founded in 2005 by former employees of PayPal, YouTube is a hub for videos of just about every type. Want to learn how to snowboard or see a bunch of people fail at parkour? It’s all on YouTube. Feel like catching up on the news or learning a new home improvement tip? You can find that info on YouTube as well. Ultimately, YouTube can be a useful learning and entertainment tool for a massive array of topics.   

The Popularity of the Ketogenic Diet

Many fad diets will attract some degree of popularity, but they lack the long-lasting appeal of the keto diet. Originally developed to help kids with epilepsy, keto has reemerged in the last decade as arguably the most effective weight loss diet of all time. With proven benefits for those who want to get fit fast, the keto diet has inspired many people to tell their story of how it’s changed their lives. From podcasters to YouTube stars, the commentary from those who love the keto diet can provide the inspiration you need to achieve your own fitness goals.

The Advent of the YouTube Star

While YouTube has been the hub for amateur videos of every type since its inception, some have learned how to gainremarkable levels of popularity using the site. YouTube stars like Jake and Logan Paul or Liza Koshy have attracted tens of millions of subscribers to their channels, resulting in sizeable paydays. This phenomenon of people discussing their ideas and expanding their popularity on YouTube is prevalent in the keto community as well.

The Most Influential Keto Personalities on YouTube

What does it take to garner thousands of followers from making keto-related videos? For many popular keto personalities, all it takes is a plan, some charisma, and most importantly, passion for the keto diet. Discover the people who have gained so much from the keto lifestyle that they use their success to help others.

Sahil “Demonstealer” Makhija

As the guitarist in four metal bands, Sahil may not be the stereotypical advocate for the keto diet. But once he saw the powerful effect that the keto diet had on his wife, Sahil went full keto and the rest is history. For an entertaining YouTube channel that has earned155,000 followers, his Headbangers Kitchen is not to be missed.

Metal Bands and Killer Keto Recipes

Sahil’s show initially featured interviews and cooking segments with a wide range of metal bands. Since the culinary side of bands like Lamb of God isn’t usually seen, these videos became extremely popular among fans of both metal and keto. After a few seasons, Sahil switched his focus to keto recipes, and with tempting options likeKeto Cheesy Pork Fried Rice, it’s easy to see why the Headbanger’s Kitchen continues to grow in popularity.

Stephanie’s Strong Emphasis on Fitness

As a lifelong athlete with a true passion for the keto diet, Stephanie is typically wearing a bikini that reveals her impressive six-pack abs and talking about the hardcore facts you need to know to optimize your level of fitness. If your keto goals include working out to get in the best shape of your life, then it’s highly likely that you’ll find Stephanie Person’s videos to be useful on your journey.

90,000 Who is he – the most influential person in the world – Forbes Kazakhstan

Photo: vladtime.ru

Every year, Forbes magazine ranks the most influential people in the world. This year, the list includes 75 people, five of them women. Among them, for example, the Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May (14th place), the President of Syria Bashar al-Assad (62nd place), special prosecutor investigating against Trump, Robert Mueller (72nd place) and the ringleader banned in the Russian Federation “Islamic State” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (73rd place).

In 2018, the ranking of influential people in the world was headed by the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping . The choice of the publication is explained by the fact that, thanks to the recent amendments to the Constitution of the PRC, the country’s leader can be in power for an unlimited number of terms. Forbes writes that “the personality cult of Xi Jinping is comparable only to the cult of Mao Zedong.”

On the second place of the rating is the President of Russia Vladimir Putin , who, as Forbes reminds, has headed this rating for four years in a row.

The three leaders in terms of influence are occupied by the American President Donald Trump , who, as the newspaper notes, with varying degrees of success, carries out his initiatives through Congress, while simultaneously being at the center of several investigations. Although Trump remains the head of the country with the most powerful army and strongest economy, he cannot get rid of scandals, both in his personal life and in business, writes Forbes.

In fourth place is the German Chancellor Angela Merkel , “the de facto leader of Europe”.Next are Amazon founder Jeff Bezos , Pope and Microsoft founder Bill Gates .

One of the founders of Google Larry Page closes the top ten. Moscow-born, US citizen Sergey Brin , who developed Google with Page, is in 35th position.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg ranked 13th, Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk ranked 25th.

90,000 30 most influential people in esports.Forbes and Sports.ru ratings

As we thought,

Forbes is the second time in the ranking of the most influential people in esports in the CIS. This year, we asked colleagues from Sports.ru to join the compilation and assess the impact of market participants from a professional point of view.

Unlike last year’s list, there are 30 persons in the new rating. Due to the pandemic and the cancellation of tournaments, it was difficult to calculate the real income, so we abandoned the monetary indicator and the placement of points.To compile the rating, the editors of Forbes and Sports.ru collected a long list of 64 applicants. The list includes players, managers and owners of teams and other assets, commentators, tournament organizers and other professionals working in the industry. Then we asked SCAN-Interfax and the Brand Analytics social media and media monitoring system to count the number of mentions of long list members in the media and social networks from September 20, 2019 to September 20, 2020. Based on this data, as well as surveys of market participants, eSports journalists Sports.ru have compiled a shortlist of the 30 most influential persons in the CIS cybersport. It is very difficult to compare players, managers and commentators (for example, for a player, influence on social networks is important, and for managers – financial indicators of companies, transfers and transactions). As a result, we considered each person in this rating (and several dozen more people in the long list) and asked ourselves, as well as market participants, the question: how much will the actions, decisions and words of a particular person affect other companies and people? After all, this is precisely what influence lies in.

A few examples of more specific questions that influenced a person’s place in the ranking:

• If player X moves to another club, how much will this affect his previous team? And will his new team help attract sponsors? How many fans will follow him?

• If player X wants to assemble a new team, how willingly will people run to him?

• To what extent is manager X free in making decisions, is he responsible only for the composition, or is his responsibility wider?

• If someone wants to host a tournament, who will be called to play and show it first?

How to make money in eSports

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, most tournaments went online – this hit the industry hard.Due to Valve’s indecision, Russian and Ukrainian clubs, which have always relied on Dota and CS, cannot clearly plan their presence in these disciplines and open lineups for other games. This year, the influence of players has significantly decreased, which is reflected in the rating. Players can still dictate their terms to clubs more than in football or hockey, but contracts play an increasingly important role. In addition, e-sports in the CIS is becoming more and more multipolar: Esforce Holding, with the support of MRG, still has significant weight, but Vitaly Volochai’s Maincast studio, WePlay, Winstrike, NAVI are gaining momentum.

The main income of esports organizations continues to depend on sponsors. Bookmakers play a critical role: every major club and broadcast of every tournament has a sponsored bookmaker. The number of sponsors from other industries is growing, but these are still isolated cases. According to the agency NewZoo, 885 major esports tournaments were held in the world in 2019. Competition ticket revenue was $ 56.3 million, up from $ 54.7 million in 2018. In 2019, the total prize money increased to $ 167.4 million.Despite the crisis, PwC is positive about the prospects for the esports market. According to the research, the average annual growth rate until 2023 will amount to 18.3%, and the total market size in 2023 will amount to $ 1.8 billion.

Most influential

The new rating is headed by Esforce Holding CEO Emin Antonyan. The top manager has been running the holding since 2018 and is responsible for the strategic development of all Esforce member organizations. The top three also included esports commentator and founder of the Maincast studio Vitaly Volochay and Evgeny Zolotarev, CEO of NAVI, one of the strongest esports teams in the CIS.

All rating participants can be divided into two groups – players and managers. This year, the ranking includes eight esportsmen. The most influential of them is Alexander S1mple Kostylev. In 2018, he became the world’s strongest CS: GO player, according to HLTV.org. The total sportsman’s income in the form of prize money is more than $ 652,888.

The most influential person in world history | Iskander

The famous book “The 100 Most Influential People in History” was compiled by the American scientist Michael Hart.It was published in 1978 and in 1992. This is a collection of short biographies of the greatest people in the history of mankind. Biographies are listed in terms of their influence. The book had a basic list of 100 people and an additional list of honorable mentions.

Hart and his team worked on the book for many months. Data on a large number of outstanding people were processed by a computer, which analyzed their goals, deeds, successes, and identified the names of the 100 most-most of them. Those who left the most noticeable mark in the history of mankind.

Michael H. Hart

Michael H. Hart

The list includes scientists, politicians, discoverers, military leaders, artists and other prominent people.

Religious figures have taken many places on the list. For example, the additional list included the church teacher Thomas Aquinas, the patriarch Abraham (in Islam, the prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him), the pharaoh and the Egyptian religious reformer Akhenaten. Hart’s book and the mother of Jesus Christ, Mary – Maryam, who is considered one of the most revered women in Islam, was included in this list.

The main list includes the founders of various religious movements: Zoroastrianism – Zarathustra, Jainism – Mahavir, Manichaeism – Mani, Taoism – Lao Tzu. And also, the reformer of the Christian Church John Calvin, one of the Fathers of the Christian Church Aurelius Augustine, the second righteous caliph of the Islamic Caliphate Umar ibn al-Khattab, the initiator of the Reformation in Christianity Martin Luther.

On the 15th place in the main list of the 100 greatest people in the world was the prophet Moses – Mussa (peace be upon him). The 6th place is occupied by the Apostle Paul.On the 5th place – Confucius. 4th – Buddha.

In 3rd place – Jesus Christ, who in Islam is considered a prophet and messiah, miraculously born by the will of God and performing miracles. Also, Muslims believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ will take place before the Day of Judgment.

But the main sensation of the study was the fact that in the first place in the list of the greatest people of all times and peoples is Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) . This shocked Hart, as well as his colleagues, who, thinking that there was some mistake, insistently demanded to repeat the experiment.After re-checking all the available information, the computer again showed the same result. Researchers repeated the experiment several times, but the artificial intelligence stubbornly stood its ground.

In the end, scientists had to admit this fact and as a result of the experiment the famous book by Hart was published, which was published in 15 languages ​​of the world with a total circulation of more than 500,000 copies. It says, in particular, that “Muhammad was the only person in the history of mankind who achieved the greatest success in both religious and worldly affairs…. And now, after 14 centuries have passed since his death, the influence of this man on the whole world is very great. ”

    Instagram blogger Natalya Zubareva was awarded the anti-award “Honorary Academician VRAL” for pseudo-medical books about leaky gut, chakras and the treatment of hormonal imbalance with dietary supplements.What is Zubareva’s mistake and who else was in the final of the award, says “Gazeta.Ru”.

    The anti-prize “Honorary Academician of VRAL”, awarded for achievements in the field of pseudoscience and pseudoscience, was awarded to Instagram blogger Natalya Zubareva. This is reported on the website of the awards.

    The prize was established by the Antropogenesis.ru scientific and educational portal and the Evolution Foundation and has been awarded since 2016. The prize every year is a statuette with a “sad reptilian”. The winner did not appear for the award.

    In Instagram, Zubareva called the founders of the award “schizophrenics”, lecturers and visitors of the forum “Scientists against myths – 11”, in which the award was presented – “idlers”, and then restricted access to her account.

    On her Instagram page, Zubareva advertises the books “Waltz of hormones”, “Waltz of hormones – 2” and “The gut is all over the head” and the Academy of Doctor Zubareva created by her, sells menus and training programs for people with excess weight, diabetes, gout and other diseases, and advertises dietary supplements.

    On the still open YouTube channel, Zubareva positions herself as “a doctor, endocrinologist, therapist, cardiologist, nutritionist, children’s nutritionist, sports nutritionist. Member of the Russian Society of Dietitians and Nutritionists, the Russian Union of Nutritionists “.

    Such an abundance of regalia, however, does not prevent her from making gross mistakes in her books.

    So, for example, Zubareva writes that the analysis of hair for microelements is supposedly more informative than a blood test and on its basis it is possible to select therapy for the patient.However, it is impossible to establish where this or that substance came from in the hair – from food, water, care products. In addition, the experts of the Committee on Skin Health and Cosmetics of the American Medical Association as early as 1974 established that, “although severe deficiency of vital nutrients can be accompanied by their low content in the hair, there is no evidence that would indicate that a low concentration of nutrients in hair means its low content in tissues, the same applies to high concentrations. “

    Zubareva also tries to convince readers that hormonal balance can be restored simply with the help of a properly selected diet. And, of course, supplements will help with this. The fact that in the USA 20% of cases of liver damage are associated with intake of dietary supplements and some of the victims require liver transplantation, the “doctor” does not bother.

    “The thyroid gland is the center between the physical body of a person and his throat chakra (energy center),” writes Zubareva in a book allegedly related to medicine.“It determines how much a person is able to manage his life, take responsibility for himself and make decisions, live as his own desires and preferences dictate.”

    To treat diseases of the thyroid gland, the doctor suggests giving up whole food groups. How exactly nutritional deficiencies are supposed to defeat disease is a mystery.

    The reason for many diseases (psoriasis, asthma, acne, diabetes mellitus) and even just a bad mood, according to Zubareva, is that the patient has a leaky intestine, and its contents enter the bloodstream.The fact that this version was outdated 2-3 centuries ago does not bother Zubareva.

    Perforation may indeed occur in the intestines due to certain diseases or certain medications, but this does not in any way affect the risk of developing asthma or diabetes. And in those cases when this condition requires treatment, it is by no means carried out with dietary supplements, as Zubareva recommends.

    “The author is incredibly lucky that she works in Russia, for such opuses in many countries she would simply be deprived of her license,” notes cardiologist Anton Rodionov.

    Zubareva does not give references to research, but says that she is a sixth generation doctor, and her father treated people for all diseases with massage, herbs and a gluten-free diet, and also talks about “women-Muses” and “women-Vests”, claiming that all women are controlled by hormones, insidiously masquerading as “the voice of reason” or “the call of the heart.” Despite such an abundance of factual errors and dubious statements, the doctor’s audience on Instagram is 2.5 million – it is difficult for readers without medical education to distinguish reliable information from Zubareva’s esoteric fantasies.

    The propagandist of conspiracy theories and author of pseudo-historical books Nikolai Starikov and instagram blogger Ekaterina Filatova (“Katia Txi”), a “naturopath” promoting alternative medicine, refusal of vaccinations, treatment with coffee enemas, homeopathy and horse doses, also reached the final of the award. vitamin C. The winner was chosen by secret ballot by a jury of 12 renowned scientists and popularizers of science.

    Starikov, an engineer-economist in the chemical industry by education, is known for his books on geopolitics and history, where he promotes all kinds of conspiracy theories.His work has repeatedly become the subject of critical analysis by historians and other specialists.

    However, opuses with titles like “Who finances the collapse of Russia?” and “All evil comes from the West” remain quite popular with certain segments of the population.

    Filatova is a designer who on Instagram gives advice on treatment for various diseases, including cancer. Katya offers to be treated with homeopathy, wheat germ and dietary supplements. She is responsible for 90,101 deaths of 90,102 people who, in desperation, seized on her recommendations as the last chance for healing.

    Earlier, the prize was also awarded to biologist Irina Ermakova, who believes that the technology for creating GMOs was given to mankind by aliens, Metropolitan Hilarion, who achieved the creation of departments of theology in Russian universities, and homeopath Oleg Epshtein.
