I am a huge huge fan of this MAN. He is just genius, incredibly inspiring! He actually encouraged me to live a healthy lifestyle which I manage to keep as a diary in my blog to spread the idea. This is it: https://youarenger.wordpress.com

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."

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
