I agree with 95% of what Dr. Greger has to say. Having said that, a vegan diet is not a panacea. I’ve seen plenty of obese vegans with heart attacks.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4691673/

“In conclusion, our results suggest that United Kingdom–based vegetarians and comparable nonvegetarians (including people who eat fish but not meat and those who eat meat <5 times per week on average) have similar all-cause mortality. The differences by diet group found for specific causes of death merit further investigation."

The Doctor is wise and sincere. We should apply his advice and live better physical lives. Thank you for this interview Mr. Rose.

Great video, great guest Brian, well done to the good doctor he is speaking total common sense, sadly common sense is not so common. Like anyone else I ate meat/fish ect for the first 20 years of my life, and then did not eat it for the next 22 years, (obviously i’m 42) nobody could tell me there is not a massive difference, lightness, clear thought, energy, quality of sleep, level good mood, and many other benefits, never been overweight and I feel absolutely better in myself for not being a weak man and cruel cunt for inflicting untold suffering… Read more »

There is a big difference between pasture raised and mainstream processed mass produced meat. I eat meat and fish but in very little quantities. There is something to be said about the health benefits of a bone broth made from organically fed animals or wild ones. People have been eating meat since the dawn of time. Our bodies are adapted to it. But our diet should be at least 80% plant based. Organic preferably. If you eat dairy, it should be from pasture raised or organically fed animals. I don’t feel like a cunt because I eat some meat and… Read more »

He’s the best! It’s sooo hard!! OMG it’s so hard! I was raw food mostly, sometimes adding in Quinoa sometimes. Sometime some cooked veggies, but mostly all raw. Lots of juicing etc.. I started this because I had severe diarrhea that no one knew what it was. I stayed true to the whole plants diet for almost 4 years. By the end of this food was just going through undigested. *I* finally found what it was on the internet. It was Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). I took about 12 weeks of a specific antibiotic and it cured it. Unfortunately… Read more »

Congratulations! You’ve just killed all the good bugs in your gut. You need to eat fermented foods, prebiotics and probiotics to rebuild your terrain. I would stick with non solid foods (soups, smoothies, herbal teas) for a week or two then slowly bring back a variety of color in your diet. Soups and salads are great and maybe some bone broth. You might want to try cannabis (CBD) to fight the inflammation. If you don’t feed the bad guys, they will leave your body or die. Also try to eat organic and pasture fed if you eat meat. Definitely nothing… Read more »

If a person talks about health with a body looks like he never do sport or movement, you should be critical. Even more if the person is 46 age old and looks like over 60. There some points you couldn’t avoid if you are a vegan/plants-based, you have 21 essential amino acid’s and you just can’t get them if you are only eating plants. Sure there is also the thing with B12, but that isn’t that big of a problem like the amino acid’s. The major problem is not that animal protein per se is unhealthy, it’s more about what… Read more »

Holy hell, people on the 21st century… Here you have a doctor in CLINICAL NUTRITION with 18 years of research behind his back, a published bestseller about health and diet, and some stupid dude telling him he looks 60 so he’s wrong while trying to convince our plants don’t have the NINE, NOT TWENTY-ONE essential amino acids (I learnt that in primary school, don’t be ridiculous, please).

I’m a senior student in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences and you don’t even comprehend what a healthy body looks like.

You die if you don’t get the NINE you are talking about, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need the others to perform well and be healthy.

Isabelle

This doctor in clinical nutrition doesn’t even seem to make the distinction between pasture raised animals and mass produced GMO fed ones. Obviously we need to eat more plants (organic preferably). Ideally 80% of all we eat should be plant base. If you google “what do people over 100 years old eat”.. You’ll see that they don’t all eat just plant. Some even drink alcohol every day!! This equation is a lot more complex then this good doctor says. Our diet is protective but it is not all there is. There is sleep, there is stress, there is physical activity,… Read more »

Banana, i bet you are another gymrat desperate for a shag with a meaningless appropriated tribal tattoo on your shoulder, guys like you are so tiresome, I see through you and your lack of psychological honesty, i will guarantee 100% your real motivation in life is not health but a dated bullshit macho idea of ‘health’, which in reality is really just ‘sex appeal’…..i.e big muscles, large body size ect purely to appeal to women, i bet that’s your only real motive you just don’t wan’t to admit to yourself and others how much wasted effort your putting in just… Read more »

Wow, couldn’t be more different. I am really skinny and i only got into this health topic because i got sick and researched and tested a lot. I don’t even care about my optic, i found a perfect girl who likes me as i am.

It seems like i shocked your beliefs, because your overreacting and offenting a lot. It’s a bit ironical if a person tells you he is at a higher level and insult you in the same text. That way nobody could take you serious. If you want to discuss, be constructiv and don’t guess out of nowhere…

OMG How old are you? You need to grow up. Chances are, what you’ve just said probably apply to you. Did somebody bully or hurt you? What with the hostility? I sense a lack of self-esteem here..

going bald has nothing to do with the food you eat, that is not proven in the case of male bald pattern. secondly, he doesnt look 60. maybe he is skinny because he likes his body this way he doesnt have to stick to the modern standards of good physique and that does not disprove his theories which is supported by massive literature out there which you can read. at the end healthy is a relative word as he said.

BaNaNa
Member

I didn’t said he looks 60 because he is bald, nether i said his theories are not true because of that. I just said you should be sceptical if someone doesn’t lives/look healthy but talks about health. If i would be fat and teach other how to lose weight, that wouldn’t be to trustworthy. Sure there could be reasons, but in most cases it’s better to be more skeptical if someone doesn’t do what he talks about. About his massive literature, i read a lot of them. My biggest concern about that is he didn’t even difference between any qualitiy… Read more »

When I turned vegan cold turkey six years ago for the sake of the animals I had no idea what my next meal would be. And mind you, I was a hard core meat and dairy person. But after a couple of weeks of research things not just became easier but more colorful and fulfilling (nutrition wise) much more then I could have imagined. And during this process Dr. Greger’s nutritionfacts.org was my go-to source to find my way around in this literary new life. And just like Brian said at the end of the interview, what caught my attention… Read more »

So I really liked this talk but I do have some minor issues with it (and pretty much all other discussions about health). For the most part, I enjoyed Michael’s enthusiastic approach to presenting the facts. However, for me, there are still some unanswered questions. In the first part of the talk, he listed off lots of studies that show the amazing ability for plant based diets to reverse disease (and this appears to be his main argument for being on a p.b.d). Later, when Brian mentioned how ketogenic diets can also reverse disease, Michael suggested that just because a… Read more »

Um ketogenic diets are B.S and aren’t proven to reverse disease. U might want to check these serie of video by Vegan Gains, not the most formal way to present this, there’s humor in their as you’d expect by a Youtuber, but everything VG said is backed by solid peer-reviewed science :
