How do I pick out a toilet that is compatible with a whole-food, plant-based diet?
I feel weird asking this, but it's a thing for me. I need to get new toilets because ours can't currently handle the load. Again, I'm sorry for it being disgusting, but it's the nature of the problem. I'd prefer not having to flush twice and hoping that I didn't just clog the toilet and it overflows...again. I have no problems when I'm using public restrooms, so I know there must be a solution to my problem. Thank you!
Since I started eating raw Whole Foods I have a lot of gas. I have gone to a Functional doctor that said I’m full of bad bacteria nothing good and a Chinese Dr who said eat more cooked vegetables. What is your take.
Here is a question to ask Greger: Is there any scientific evidence that a Keto diet is harmful? I ask because two of my sisters have gone Keto (i.e. an excuse to eat meat and saturated fat) as a permanent lifestyle, not just temporary. This is scary. Barnard and McDougall argue against Atkins, but the Keto people say that Keto is different from Atkins. I'm looking for any evidence that a Ketogenic diet is harmful to long term health (specifically diabetes, atherosclerosis, and cancer). Thanks!
Greger's answer about cravings just doesn't line up with my experience and I think it's completely ridiculous.
I don't crave donuts, in fact, I think they're disgusting. I think my body has realized that the sort of donuts you can buy at coffee shops are full of chemicals that are added to increase the shelf-life of the donuts. Those chemicals are designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the donuts while they're on the shelves, and I suspect they wreak havoc to the microorganisms in my gut. I simply don't crave foods that are full of chemicals like this, and I think the reason why is obvious. I'm not sure what's going on with people who are able to chow down on fake food like this, but I suspect it may be a matter of lack of exposure to superior forms of nutrition. I think once the body is acquainted with a food source that is not full of these chemicals, it will start signalling the brain to consume that, rather than chemical-laden donuts.
As far as fat, sugar, and salt... I crave fat, sugar and salt....to a point. Greger makes it sound like our bodies are telling us to sit down and eat a bowl of sugar/fat/salt. I can't just sit down and eat a bowl of a sugar. After the first teaspoon or two, my "craving" turns into a feeling of disgust. If I force the sugar down my throat, I will vomit it right back up. Same with salt, same with fat. I can't just sit down and eat a stick of butter, or a bowl of salt. There is more to the story than Greger is telling you. He wants you to believe that your body is stupid, but it's not. It's the product of billions of years of evolution.
Salt, sugar and fat can enhance the flavor of something, but only to a point. After that point, they detract from the flavor. There's such a thing as "too sweet", "too salty" and "too greasy"... Personally, I trust my body when it comes to these "cravings"... I put a certain amount of sugar in my coffee (which is the only time I even consume refined sugar), AND, more sugar tastes worse. My body clearly wants me to consume a very specific amount, and it has fine-tuned my sense of taste to acquire exactly this amount. My body is not telling me to add more, it's telling me to add a very specific amount.
I just can't relate to this idea that food companies are simply putting copious amounts of salt, sugar and fat into everything to get us addicted to food. Maybe this gets some people hooked, but it's miles from my experience. I find most processed food to be revolting as well. I seem to have a taste preference for food that is as close to its natural state as possible, with the least amount of human processing. The most processed thing I consume is refined sugar, which is glucose, which the body absolutely requires to function. In fact, if you do not consume glucose, your body synthesizes it naturally. Beyond that, the only processing done to most of what I consume is applying heat, which I do myself.
I am sorry to say, but he doesn't look or sound completely well to me. From my years on vegan foods, it looks like he is suffering from some of the same symptoms that I had. Brain fog (scattered thought association), fatigue (can't open his eyes fully, probably from insomnia) and a grey sullen complexion around the eyes. I still remember the detrimental effects it had on me like it was yesterday, and I quit 15 yrs ago. Still fighting to get back to a normal digestion, which was completely wrecked from doing the diet right.
I loved the interview, but I have a question regarding your recommendations about Vitamin D and other vitamins (not including B12). I have been reading that when isolated and deposited in the body, individual vitamins can cause our bodies to react in ways that are not beneficial and are even potentially harmful, whether used daily or only occasionally, for example, when we are pregnant as you suggested. There is literature supporting this view. Is there some particular reason why you recommend this practice, and are you able to explain the reasons including studies that support this view? Thanks very much
It's really concerning what Dr. Gregger said about tofu and nuts. I think I can eat nuts raw but how about tofu and other beans? Since these are my source of protein and they release HCAs when cooked at high temperatures. What is the right way of cooking them and at what temperature?
Hello. I liked the video, thanks. I've subscribed to the channel.
A point about nuts: peanuts and cashew nuts both cannot be eaten raw. They need to be roasted, or fried or boiled, to be digestible. Obviously frying is to be avoided. Here in India especially in the western part peanuts, known here also as groundnuts, are sometimes cooked like beans or even boiled in the shell. I have the unsalted dry roasted ones, and i can see that the degree of roasting varies. Clearly the less strongly roasted ones would have less AGEs.
Cashew nuts are never seen excessively roasted so I more unreservedly eat these unsalted and dry roasted. They are not dried uncooked and the fresh ones cannot be stored for long, unlike peanuts shelled and dried to be cooked like beans, so a few people cook cashew nuts in season in the areas where they grow. But most are roasted or fried and then they can be stored and shipped and sold.
So my question: considering that both these nuts need some heat treatment to be digestible, should I go ahead and continue having them unsalted and dry roasted? Selecting the 'less roasted (and less delicious!) ones when available?
Incidentally, i thought you came across as very polite and well spoken, affable, so 'vegan savage' doesn't really apply as a description. :). Just saying... it's fine as an ironic or amusing name.
Regards and good wishes. Thanks again for the video.
Can you advise on **all meat & no carbs diet**, as I started this diet in the later half of 2018 and found it to be good obtaining a happy weight, I have more energy and feel younger, healthier & fit than previous years, my psoriasis condition is clearing well and I have better results at the dentist with low plaque levels. Would like your expert opinion on no carbs diet/meat only diet. I have reduced some forms of exercise just to see the benefits of a 'meat only diet'.
Is it both dairy + carb the concern? What about all meat & fat i.e. no carb diet? Does it make a difference to reduce carbs?
Hey man, ¿How are you?
I am writing to you to congratulate for your hit diet results.
I Wonder: ¿Why not activate subtittles in Latino or Español, from youtube channel to achieve more impact in others than don't speak or understand English language?
We can change the world more fast if you do that.
Thanks for all information than you share.
Thank you for the timing list that goes straight to a topic. - I know it is extra work. - When I do not understand everything I go to the subtitles, and they have some funny words there sometimes. Can you please correct the funny words like: "bland" instead of "plant". And on another video with Dr M Greger you asked about B12 and there were some really funny words instead of the B12 component. Can I entice you to spend some more extra work on getting the automatic subtitles fixed? - Thank you for all you do and greetings from Niederbayern.
I read "How not to Die" good to know its better to eat raw nuts and seeds (since the book this is new information)
I am a BIG fan of Dr. Greger, Dr. McDougall and Dr. Neal Barnard (they make a great team)
Please make more videos like these. Loved it and enjoyed it!!
Elsje Massyn Those 3 doctors are the most sickly looking of all the plant-based doctors! And I am not talking about their weight. It is so obvious they are not healthy, but people just don't want to believe it. I do eat plant-based for the animals, but I don't believe this is the Healthiest way to eat.
Mr. Larry -- he said tap water is cleaner than regular bottled water. Distilled water is even more expensive then standard bottled water. While distilled has less pollutants, it also has all the minerals removed. And if the distilled water is sold in a plastic bottle it will dissolve more of the plasticizers than standard bottled water. Most of those plasticizers are hormone mimics.
11:54 vegan omega 3 supplements are extracted with hexane so if you eat flax seed walnut and everything do not supplements.
20:42 how can he recommend a second round of antibiotics sorry doc this is the stupidest things to say (if you guys have chronic diarrhea due to bad bacteria overgrowth first kill them with naturel antibiotics garlic onions oregano etc then take probiotic rich foods and fiber)
Sorry for my English
I find it very disappointing that Dr Greger does not promote organic eating in his videos as well as discourage eating GMO's. Also I disagree with using a microwave, which he seems to promote as a good way of cooking. I find him rather controversial in these areas. And, tap water?/ Yikes, Chloride and fluoride are proven to be harmful in the long-term consumption. Just don't understand his method of health.
He did a video on soy where you should try to stick to a maximum of 3 -5 servings of soy. After 5 it's the red zone. 1 - 3 seems to be the safest as well as healthiest. Too much soy can raise igf-1 and that's the main consurn.
How can farting be healthy? I haven't farted since I started limiting all carbohydrates (sugars, starches and grains) except fresh above ground veg more than two years ago. I never bloat after meals either (no more distended belly/food babies). I feel very healthy as a result of eating this way. Seriously, farting is an indication that all is not well with your digestion...
Carneval Right and anyone that can't see this is deceiving themselves! I want to believe this is a healthy way of eating, but it is getting harder and harder to believe after seeing so many plant-based doctors and others go downhill so fast after years of being vegan.
Hi, sehr informatives Video ;-) Danke!! Ich hätte von Dr. Greger gewusst, ob man seborrhoische Dermatitis mit "whole food low fat plant based" in den Griff bekommt. (Bei mir hats trotz seinen Empfehlungen noch nicht geklappt :-() Vllt. hat er spezifische Studien im Kopf? Würde mich extrem freuen, wenn du das nächste Mal die Frage miteinbeziehst. Diese Hauterkrankung ist auch recht häufig vorkommend, deshalb würdest du vielen anderen damit auch helfen. 😊 Danke 🤗
I like how Dr. Greger corrects his prior conclusions based on new evidence, such as with the nuts and seeds talk. Also glad he cleared up that smoked paprika and liquid smoke flavoring are okay. <breathes sigh of relief>
You are so stupid! This dude references everything and tells you to make your own opinion. deny the science if you want but this is stupid effort to push your uneducated views. Dude is such an expert that he is on his 13th interview for the day! Genius mid exersize does not look shiney enough then go check out vegan models and athletes! Many Olypians are vegan you fool
+Southern Girl - you're welcome. Sorry to hear that you've not been feeling well. Getting your stress levels down can certainly help (I know sometimes it's not easy to do, but it is doable, so that's a good thing). Sometimes we can get information overload and that leads to more confusion, which leads to stressing about food and health, which adds to any current stress load and then that leads to ill health. It can be a vicious circle!
Personally, I believe that if you have high levels of stress, it's best to say 'no' to as many activities as possible, to allow your body to take a break. When we're ill, I do believe it's our bodies crying out for a break of some type, so that it has enough downtime to do the repair work needed. Stress is part of life, but unfortunately, if we don't try to manage it, it will manage us. Hope that makes sense. :-)
Nat Daniels Thank you for the kind reply! I do agree with you on a lot of the points you made. I personally think genetics also plays a role in our health and how long we may live. I've read so many conflicting reports and just don't know what to believe anymore. I do know that I plan to continue eating this way because of the animals. I'm 73 years old and have not been feeling well physically or mentally for a while now. I think that may be one of the reasons I'm concerned this woe may not be the healthiest. I do believe stress is affecting my life right now...By the way, Dr. McDougall is one of my favorite doctors and people. I think I have watched everything he has ever put on YouTube! I do hate to see him looking so sick, but you are right, it may not necessarily be the food. I have several of his books as well as Dr. Gregor's "How Not To Die" which is one of my favorite books. I think I have seen the video you posted, but I will check it out. I know I saw one about a retired vegan heart surgeon that was very old and still working until his 90's . He did look great for his age! Thanks again for your reply :-)
+Southern Girl - we'll have to agree to disagree. The argument that a few vegan doctors look unhealthy is an opinion – it's subjective and can't be logically argued. I don't think they look unhealthy, you do – both of us are sprouting opinions. In respect of McDougall, we don't know his full personal history. For all we know he could have been injured, or highly stressed – and that will age you quicker than food. I've seen people lose a loved one and turn grey and fall ill overnight, and they were omnivores! I would never argue in that scenario that they were unhealthy because of their diet, because clearly there's more going on than that.
Here's a vegan doctor who (I believe) looks wonderful. Dr Wareham 103 now, and he only retired at age 95 – he's been vegan for over 50 years. https://youtu.be/FX58PyQwrcI Being vegan clearly hasn't done him any harm. I'm sure I could also find a video of an omnivore who looks just as good at the same age. The argument is moot on both sides, because looking healthy is pure opinion.
Being healthy, however, is a different topic to looking healthy. When people argue that veganism is unhealthy it's a slippery slope, because you then have to prove that being an omnivore is healthy, and I'm afraid there are millions of omnivores who have died or are currently in hospital because they were/are unhealthy.
There are healthy vegans, non healthy vegans, healthy omnivores and non healthy omnivores. There are so many factors to health: diet, environment, exposure to toxins, exercise, stress levels, psychological and emotional challenges, and the list goes on. Diet can contribute to good health, but it cannot be solely be attributed to health – too many variables at play that contribute to good health to point out only one variable.
He is so healthy you guys are just trying to spread your misinformed views! 13th interview and mid exersize, dude is a nerd not a model. Deny the science all you want that is your idiotic choice! Many Olypians are vegan
+Bonnie Van Dyke christ id love to look and sound so sick! you guys are nuts. these blokes look like doctors. dedicated overworked doctors. with no interest in lifting weights, or tanning, fashion etc. obviously their work is their life. and i for one am immensely grateful for that.
Have you ever been around a 90 year old, dumb fuck? Apparently not, or you wouldn't say such stupid shit. 70 years old is OLD; 70 year olds who haven't had a half-million dollars worth of plastic surgery are WRINKLED, their skin SAGS. How stupid are you? And don't tell me about your grandma (or whoever) who's 70 and looks awesome, because she doesn't.
Bonnie Van Dyke
Says a fat chick 😂 How is that cholesterol test? You on that Butter-Keto BS diet that goes against science? Olympic athletes are often vegans you can deny the science all you want that is your choice! But I will stick with Plant Based at 8% body fat 5'10" 210lb + shit load of endurance... This dude is such a respected expert that he is on his 13th interview what have you done today 😂
Bonnie Van Dyke You are so right!! Dr Gregor, Dr. Bernard and Dr. McDougall all look the same! Dr. McDougall is only 70 years old, but he looks and acts 90.... Until they ate this way for years, they looked perfectly healthy. They all aged very rapidly and look much older than they are. Something is very wrong!
Thank you so much for posting these interviews! I sit here the entire interview taking notes, extremely helpful! I was wondering if you have any suggestions on the most clean forms of EPA & DHA supplements? And which B-12 supplement you take?
Sorry, but edamame are soya beans. Hmm... I'm not sure that tap water is that safe in much of the United States, given all the fracking that goes on there and how many corrosive chemicals, such as benzine, has been found in tap water. However, almost all mineral water contains micro plastics, even from glass bottles - albeit in lesser amounts. Almond skins are high in tannins, which inhibit the absorption of nutrients. Recent evidence from invasive studies in Israel have found probiotics to make little difference to gut flora. Biotin-rich foods, such as millet, and supplements have been said to encourage hair growth, although worrying about it won't help. Androgen is produced when you're stressed and causes hair loss, although we shouldn't view things in black and white (in terms of how much, etc), as it's not just about amounts of things we consume or apply, it's also about our degree of sensitivity to them and our natural bio cycles and hormonal states. Obviously, genetics has a large part to play in everything related to our health. You also need to be careful with vitamin D; too much is harmful and cause hardening of the arteries, for example. I also live in Germany, and the food is always heavily laden in salt to the extent that it cancels out all other flavours, which why I prepare and cook as much as possible myself. Here's a link to a recent news report about the study on probiotics and how they found that they're of little use.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
