  • Thank you so much for your video and how it is inspiring my family! I just watched this again this time with my 11 yr old and dad who both have ADHD. We appreciate the links and the 9 easy categories. I am going to use that Be Focused app for our homeschooling this year. The count down is on and I feel so much more hopeful about this school year being different thanks to role models and advice like you have shared ��������

  • Cysts can grow almost anywhere in your body or under your skin. There are many different types of cysts. Most cysts are benign, or noncancerous. You are what you eat. Certain foods heighten testosterone like liquorice/licorice. Once upon a time poly cystic people were worshipped as fertility goddess’s due to naturally being fertile. I am personally concerned about high level use of pesticide in the food system of which the biggest organ in the human body (the skin) naturally detox’s which causes my acne. I have a family history of cancer but it is because my older family members were part of the industrial revolution that caused the multiple use and abuse of the chemical revolution that I have managed to try and avoid through being educated. Your gut flora isn’t really going to effect PCOS; unless your messing so much with your gut flora that your spiking hormones. Doctors are not required to be trained in nutrition or how food is farmed or the industrial revolution; but slowly things are changing. The history of naturopathy states that first you need to remove ‘harm’ and nature should take care of it’s self aka; natural cure. Well done on the low GI diet though to slow the diabetes epidemic that is plaguing the first world and is a proven cause of PCOS. Also not being able to afford only organic food is a socio/economic problem which only the top 1% can’t afford and highly relevant in today’s messed up financial first world.

  • Question for @Rachel Aust and other viewers: does any of you have cross diagnosis, such us PCOS and low thyroid leves? How did you adjust your diets? There are so many different infos on what to eat in case of low thyroid, but some food is not recommened for PCOS and vice versa, so it’s confusing. Which foods do you eat in such case?
    Plus @Rachel, thank you a lot for your videos. You give valuable info and courage!

  • I weigh myself around a week after my period has ended, first thing in the morning before having water and after using the bathroom, on the bathroom floor, naked, in an upright posture and it’s always been correct.

  • OMG! Everything you are suggesting is actually the opposite of what I do! As I’m drinking a 7x6in cup of coffee with 10 large spoons of sugar I’m really trying to figure out how to work with having ADHD. I am on meds and it doesn’t do anything for me. I’ve already stopped and started this video four times and I’m 11 minutes in. I’ve even Started and stopped writing this 3 times. I also have a two and three-year-old that definitely don’t help me with focusing. I seriously have not completed any projects in years and I’m feeling like I’m driving myself crazy.

  • I always love watching your videos always so entertaining!! BTW I absolutely love your background! Home inspiration for sure:) Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland! ������

  • Fantastic video! I could relate to them all. My biggest issue is the Perfectionist or ‘all or nothing’ attitude. Ive been working on it and its a game changer for me. Thanks for all your great info and the work you put into your videos ❤

  • Hello Dan, I work as a psychotherapist and do non-traditional psychotherapy with people who have addiction issues. I can not tell you how helpful this video has been for myself and some of my clients who have attention deficit superpowers! As you probably know, there is a very high incidence of ADHD in this population. Your suggestions have given hope to my patients which is a powerful substance for those in recovery. Many thanks for the work you do. Spero Alexio.

  • Meds can be a tremendous help. I was on vyvanse from age 14 to 23 (when I lost tricare benefits) and so I was forced to adapt to my untethered mind.

    Although I am less productive overall my wife and my coworkers tell me I’m more creative, happier, and more fun. I certainly miss the effortless work ethic that meds provide and it does make me feel “normal” so to speak.

  • Im really struggling with my ADHD lately especially at work, I know mist of these tips but hard to stick with them. Its great having this reminder with such great positive energy. Thanks!

  • The best way to get yourself on track with pcos is through diet. Sugars count as carbs. So you need to have low sugar and carb intake. Kinda like the keto diet, but not as extreme. Eat some meat healthy amounts of veggies and fruit, plus staying away from processed foods and soy.
    ( Soy works as an estrogen and can throw your hormones off. And soy is in everything, especially processed stuff)

  • I think you are awesome the way you control your life. But to me you look like a robot. I have adhd too. Do you enjoy your life? Where is the fun? do you also manage it?

    I don’t like this video. it only show me how hard is to be you.:( I am 22 and this is not helping.

  • I weigh myself every Friday morning before liquids/food and after using the washroom. Same clothes, around the same time on the same floor with the same scale.

    When I started telling my doctor about losing weight she weighed me and it was much different then my home scale. That and I had just had lunch lol. I honestly didn’t listen to it because I rely on my scale for my weight loss.

  • I love you. Thank you for continuing to help motivate me. I have recently started to try to look better and I find it so helpful like you said not to count calories or constantly weigh myself. I am feeling better and am starting to be happier.

  • No Morning Routine…Wooosh…my day is…roll the dice and let’s see what happens!! ���� I can so relate to that!! �� Thanks for all the great tips/tools. I’ll definitely have to watch it a couple more times to get them all. �� Just diagnosed at the age of 50 something and would rather not be on medication… weighing my options at this point.

  • What have u been doing?? u look so good I haven’t watched u in a while and whatever u r doing seems to be working!!! Keep up the great work��

  • thank you for this Dan!! i was really just sitting here bawling my eyes out at 12 inna morning about how I hate my adhd and how I think it is holding me back as a teenager but when u said something like “make it your superpower instead of your weakness”, that really spoke to me. thanks:,)

  • Hi Sir! I’m from the Philippines and I’m suffering From ADHD and it really affect me a lot. It was really affect my academic performance cause I get easily forget anything. I didn’t finish my job well-done and my brain keeps running out in different direction, I can’t focused even in my writing and many more. That’s why I decided to watch this video and try to apply for my self. Thank you very much for this video. ������

  • Thank you so much Dan:) God bless you, I am someone who doesn’t really want to go down the route of medication, but out of desperation to be able to function I have been really thinking I need to. You have inspired, encouraged and motivated me to try and manage my ADHD with more natural techniques and to harness it in a positive way that will help me to pursue my potential and succeed in my goals and desires for my future. Peace and love!! x

  • Thanks for doing this video! Implementing as of tomorrow. Got here from Alex Becker. SAAS is way beyond me but I learn useful bits from varied sources…

  • Weight only shifts around the same 3-4 pounds but I’ve lost a Jean size and a half just by walking an hour a day. The scale is evil and counterproductive for me.

  • I hardly ever get on the scale, but I noticed that I lost about 4.5# in one week last week. I’m not sure what I did that gave me the weight difference. Probably because of the change in seasons (shrugs)? I don’t really recall doing anything different besides for NOT exercising for a stretch of about 2 weeks. Could it be from muscle loss?

  • I just found out I got PCOS.. I’m worried I won’t be able to have children in the future.. I’ve read mixed things over google so I’m a little worried, can someone explain to me how hard it is to fall pregnant and can carrying the baby be a problem too?

  • I am 21 year old female i have pcos that is a yes that is the trust.My doctor srinivas put me on medroxyprogesterone pill ten mg.
    I start taking last year with doctor srinivas that is a yes that is the trust.

  • Over the past 5 years I have learned these things through SOOO MUCH frustration and pain. This video seriously sums up and adds some things I didn’t know, 5 years of trial and error. This video is beyond amazing and thank you for making it! This is the best advice I could find! You’re no doctor but it does align with hollistic treatments!

  • You lost me from 4:40 to 9:37 on your tip #3, you should’ve called this video “fabletics”, I’m sorry Jeanine I love you but I didn’t want to see a fabletics video and you always talk them in every single video

  • I’ve been looking for a specific video of Rachel’s and I can’t remember what it’s called but the thumbnail of this video has an outfit from the video. It was a video that showed off some of her staple clothing pieces. It’s a bit of an older video as well. Does anyone know the name of the video?

  • Hi Dan.how do I get career consultation from you? I really want to do something great in my career but this 9 to 5 job sucks for my personality type due to adhd.I feel passionate about many things.But I am not able to pick up any of them due to uncertainty and lack of knowledge.Moreover I fear failures and ADHD is the cherry on the top.Please guide.

  • I am a psychologist with ADD in Margaret River South West of OZ. Im setting a specialist treatment clinic here on a blueberry farm surrounded by forest trails for hiking and mountain bike riding, 10 mins from beautiful beaches and rivers. My method for treating is talking and activity, walking works great, yoga works great, ping pong works great but sitting in an office is the last resort! Exercise yoga, massage are great complimentary activities to work with ADD/ADHD. Good on you Dan, this is the way, there are so many that need help with this issue. Anyone that would like to email me [email protected] gmail.com

  • Has anyone got all test done blood work, transvaginal ultrasound etc.. & they did not have PCOS or hormonal imbalance but, still have hirustism aka (abnormal hair growth)?

  • I’m scared of my scale….such a mental trigger for me. I use my clothing and how I look in them to push me along my journey. Once a week would be enough for me!

  • Hello.i’m 17 and i don’t have any pcos symptoms. My weight is normal 60 kg (170cm) my periods are regular and i don’t have unwanted hair (i’m Arabic so yes i’m hairy but it’s not like a beird) but my mother have pcos ( i learned that pcos is genetic ) my sister is 25 she doesn’t have it…..my mother had me naturally without any pill not like my sister.. do you think me or my sister have the heighter chance of getting pcos?… and is there a specific age for pcos?. and how can i prevent it?

  • Going through it now at 53. I’ve been using tools like [email protected] for the last few years, same on food and exercise. Great affirmation that it’s the right track and can work without meds. Thanks!

  • I hear all this advice bad sadly I can’t do most of it until I get a kidney transplant…

    I am an interesting case. Not only do I have PCOS (diagnosed when I gained 3 sizes in half a year and went to my Gyn in 2009) after suffering 3 abdominal abscesses but I also have severe sleep apnea and haven’t gotten good sleep since 2018 (hardly get REM sleep and was told I probably have replenished my hunger hormones in my brain (Ghrelin and Leptin) and now am at my heaviest ever but ANOTHER wrench in my story is that I have no kidneys and am on hemodialysis 3 times a week and on Prednisone. How can I lose weight with all this against me? The problem with being on a dialysis diet is that I cannot have whole wheat, cannot have whole grains, cannot have much dairy or creamy things. I cannot have anything with more than low potassium in it. Kidneys normally excrete excess potassium and phosphorus and sodium and fluid but without kidneys you have to control your intake and a lot of healthy foods have those things. It makes it hard to eat a typically healthy diet. I cannot have nuts of legumes or oranges or grapefruit. Some foods like Starfruit will even kill me and grapefruit will counteract with very important medications. I take specialized Vitamin D because without kidneys my body is missing a particular link in making vitamin D out of being in the sun. Also, I must wear sunscreen because my medication isn’t friendly with the sun.

  • I have

    . Ive been on opiates for years and i finally just want to be done. Ive learned so much and i have so many hopes and dreams and things worth teaching to the world. I just have no positive support system in my life right now, well i do but just no one who understands what im going through. Someone to relate to. I live in phoenix az

  • You have to wear good ear plugs with highest decibel protection like those for construction work. Use those at night when you go to sleep you will see how that will be beneficial for your health and well being.

  • I am bleeding like a hell since 3 months and i even took pills like three times in this 3months.. and recently before 3 days, bleeding completely stopped when heavy dose given but yet i started bleeding again today.. and i don’t know what next i could do.. and i dont want to take any injections… what did you do when u had such heavy bleedings???

  • Omg your story is exactly like mine!!!
    I have gained weight but I don’t look fat and even eating low carbs cause of my “celiac” i don’t look my weight. I just got diagnosed this year and I’m 31 because as soon as would loose a little bit of weight (2-3lbs) I would get my period so heavy and painful that I ended up in the hospital. I’m hoping I can get the help like you did!

  • it all sounds amazing and almost guru-like but how do you get started? I have been fighting throughout my entire life; first being labeled as a misbehaved kid, stupid and other things. Then being the black sheep, the lazy, unproductive, and blahblahblah. So now I am at an age and at a point where I gotta do something with my life. failed out of high school 5 times and now with a criminal record and it seems like the harder I try and the more ”motivated” I am the bigger the failure and consequently the disappointment in myself.

    Yes, I am a very creative person and can at times write a couple of beautiful songs/poems effortlessly and within 20mins but that’s about 0.5% of my life and the rest of it is fail, try again, fail again, hate myself, hate the world and the cycle repeats itself endlessly. So MY ADHD has been nothing but a noose around my neck and a handicap like no other.

    I understand your points and they actually make perfect sense but I don’t recognize myself. Don’t get me wrong this is not a criticism or hate. This is just me venting. Thank you for letting me share my sob story and hopefully, I’ll commenting sometime in the distant future with a different story and a different narrative.

    Great videos. Looove the content.

  • Anyone suffering from Hirsutism?
    I have already missed my 2 months periods… ��
    Well before I missed it for 6-8 months
    I’m tired of this

  • Honestly that is why i hate digital scales because scaling will depend ob the battery life if the batteries are a bit used it won’t be exact soo…

  • okay, so I’m only 17 going on 18 and I have irregular and delayed periods. They come after every 2 months, stay for 7 days and then I don’t see them for two whole months. No discharge. Nothing at all. My hair growth is heavy. I have hair on my feet, toes, fingers, thighs, forearms, chest and abdomen but my mom has this too. It’s genetic I think. I don’t have cystic acne, my pimples would come and go but I have dark spots on my skin idek why. My hair are thinning but I’m not losing it in chunks or leaving bald spots, they’ve always been extra fragile. When I brush them too hard, they’d fall and even when I’m sitting on my bed, a whole ass strand of hair would come out of my hair. Yeah, I’m losing my hair in the form of single strands and not chunks. I don’t know what’s wrong with me and I haven’t told my mom yet, can someone please diagnose me. I also experience normal cramps when I’m on my period but it sucks bc I don’t see them for another 2 months

  • Am I the only one who thinks, listening to just the way he talks, “damn this guy really does have adhd.” Hes got great points but fuck, he rambles a little.

  • I am an obese person at age 22 and just today i realized that i have OCOS and the doctor had to comment on my weight to the point of making me cry i understand that it’s bcz of my poor decisions but the fact that OCOS does make you gain weight a lot is just so frustrating! I’ve been eating my entire life normally a lot of my friends who are skinnier than me actually eat more than me or eat junk food on a daily basis! I don’t eat junk food till i’m with someone who eats it and it’s pretty rare! It’s unfair! I’ve been trying to feel good about myself and love my body the way it is for a couple of months and it started to show i started to love myself more and then there is this doctor calling me names and commenting aggressively about it to the point of making me cry… Like the fuck? I’m on my journey to lose weight it’s been a month maybe i’ve lost this year 6 kg which for me is great… I’m not going to let myself live like this i want to improve my health and everything while of course loving myself but some people just can’t let it be that easy… I guess it’s a part of the journey… Anyways i’m going to do my best and i’m not going to let her words get to me

  • Can we get the written out list of supplements because I’ve never heard of some of those you mentioned. Please help the visual learners like myself lol.

  • My fav white noise app is relaxio, it has coffee shop noises so if you have a grandma that gets up at 3am, does dishes, and talks on the phone, itll drown her right out!

  • Thank you so much for all of the information. I’ve had PCOS for 15 years (diagnosed at 16) but truly just started struggling with all of the awful symptoms (weight gain, mood imbalance, unwanted hair, loss of hair, etc) the past few years. I was very lucky that my only symptom before was irregular periods and yet I was still able to conceive my beautiful children. I am sure nursing school and two kids have a lot to do with that haha. I am not a fan of birth control or medications. I really am struggling with finding what works for my body in a natural holistic way. You were very informative and I will be checking out your other PCOS videos.

  • Thinking about Pomodoro gives me anxiety. Does anyone here really use that app. I have a feeling that people just mention it online because it’s the kind of thing that they get paid to promote.

  • Can you create a list of the supplements you are talking about? I was surprised not to see them written out as panel slides on your video and it would be helpful for people since you speak rather quickly and the words may not be as clear to some.

  • Hi Rachel, during the 2 year duration when you were implementing the changes, did you take hormonal supplements few months in the year to induce the period when you were not naturally getting it?

  • Congratulations on this! Your story is incredible! In practice i see so many women with PCOS AND thyroid issues as well due to the estrogen and thyroid connection. Sending you lots of love!

  • The only thing that works for my acne is taking one month of minocyclene. I’ve tried all natural remedies nothing. Within about a week, my acne clears up. I find dairy products do make it a bit more sensitive but I love cheese. For me it’s inflammation. It also took me a long time to get a diagnosis as well. I’m working on losing the weight gained over the last five years but it definitely gets hard over the years as you age. I’m doing a moderate carb diet (about 100 carbs) per day keto is too restrictive for me. Adding more fibre, protein and reducing carbs does help for me.

    My mood swings have definitely balanced out over the years. I’ve just learned to get more sleep and exercise and then the moods improve. Sleep is meh. Periods are back on track too.

  • I found this video and will keep looking into other things because I have add or adhd and I was told not to take my meds anymore due to how it was ruining my liver so thanks for these tips

  • This acne guide AcneCureOnline. Com is very useful for my daughter that is why she definitely love it. We have already expended a hefty amount of money trying various acne cures for over a year now but not one of them had worked. I am thankful that we`ve found out this guide. We observed an apparent distinction within a couple of days and within a few weeks her acne had cleared up.

  • This was so helpful. Just found out I have adult ADHD I was freaking out because I don’t want to take drugs for the rest of my life. And I have so much I would like to do.

  • When I needed to lose weight I bought a bathroom scale and during the first eight days my readings were confusing, too many ups and downs of 2 to 3 kilos. Then I realized that the scale reads differently when the ambient temperature changes abruptly between the drawer in which I place my scale and the floor. So I learned to rest the scale a minute or two before stepping on it.
    In addition, I take three or four consecutive readings and take the average. Just to be safe.
    By the way. I weigh myself without clothes on.

  • Hi good night or morning my name is Ashley an I found out that I have PCOS this month an I am looking for advice and support on how I am to cope with my PCOS, I am sad an worried

  • Wow this was really encouraging ive definitely taken some serious downward dives because of the number on the scale. Thanks for such a great encouraging video.

  • Thank you for the video! I honestly feel like I have pcos since I have a lot of the symptoms even though I’ve visited my doctor ab this. My periods are really irregular and I skip 2-3+ months which scares me. Would doctors be able to diagnose pcos through a blood test only? I never did the internal ultrasound because I’m a bit scared of it.

  • I am suffering from pcos since 4 years.
    And i am going to treat with homeopathy.

    Is this good? Please reply i am very frustrated ��

  • Up to now I haven’t had super bad acne or a lot of hair growth what I had was my periods were regular and then they started becoming irregular and I started gaining weight without a calorie surplus I become overweight and it hurt from time to time I’ll have small pains

  • Hi! I Am 21 and I just found out last year that I have pcos (before I found out, I had no period for 7 months I thought its normal until someone told me iT ISN’t) IKNOW!!! so after that I tried dieting& exercising regulary but none of that worked I even gained more weight, From 28 inches in waist I’m now in 31!! I got more pimples What am I doing wrong?? I’m really scared reading and watching different experience videos. I want to treat it as soon as possible ��

  • Hello frm India Mumbai… Best video for me… Thanks for making this video… U and u r husband r huge inspiration for me… God bless #extremeweight loss inspires me till date.. Good luck..

  • omg yassss queen slay������ but thank you so much for this video, currently trying to lose weight (already lost 20lbs) and the scale always makes me feel like it defines my worth, but knowing all this information, it makes me feel better! thank you��❤️

  • Another tip is to weigh yourself on the SAME SCALE THREE TIMES. Zeroing it first, of course. Sometimes, you might get a different reading. If you do, simply zero the scale again, step on, and if it’s still way off, take the median of all the readings. Great tips!

  • I’m surprised I made it this far. I’d almost given up and just labeled myself lazy and unfocused. But then I realized that I have the big picture in my head, and I’m usually good at mapping out how to get there sometimes but I just couldn’t sit still long enough to do the work. It’s been very frustrating ����‍♀️

  • Cracks me up cause it took me going to this video literally about a month later to actually finish it. And I resumed it right before the part where you said if you made it this far you probably don’t have adhd �� I’m struggling super bad to stay focused I am writing a book. And I work 2 jobs that I hate. Thinking about getting into accounting but don’t know if I will be able to complete school for that. The reason I would be getting into accounting would be for the pay raise and as a staple to really become successful in running my own company. But I mean I’m kinda all over the place and I struggle to stay focused. I really dont want to make meds the answer tho. Kinda need all the help/support/ideas I can get in order to motivate myself. So I’m all ears.

  • Can’t believe how much has changed in just 2months. I am more in control of my PCOS, my endometriosis flares have got better and slowly my weight is dropping making things easier to manage… Dr. Richard herbal product is really more of better than all of what medical practitioners have been prescribing for me…am well so happy for purchasing his herbs…it’s best if you are facing any issues of ovarian syndrome and Infertility you should try reaching out to him as I did on Whatsapp or probably via email… Here is his WhatsApp number +2348129605087

  • I changed everything in my life. My soaps, deodorant is natural and I limit any chemicals and use bpa free items

    I take berberine, myo-instinol/d-chiro with folate, vitamin d, multiminerials with boron, NAC, Saw Palmetto.

    I am also currently on the keto. I suggest Keto quickstart: A beginners guide to whole food ketogenic diet.

    I lost 20 pounds last year. I am in the process of walking 6k 10k steps a day. (1 hour).

    Channel to natural items has been a game changer my skin, body and overgrown facial hair has stop.

  • I’m kind of ‘recovering’ from heavy calorie restriction. I was eating like 450 calories a day and burning 600 calories. That went for 2 years. I was obsessed.. I started at 67. 1 kg and now I’m 65.5 kg. At my ‘best’ I was 63 kg. I was eating so little and didn’t even lose that much weight. Now I just did a lot of home workouts for 4 days and I’m not eating more calories (500+-, slowly trying to eat more) but more protein in the calories. Now I am 67 kg (btw I’m 165 cm). I was always very muscular and very sporty. I hope It’s muscle and water weight… I’m just so anxious about gaining weight�� At least I don’t have to go to school at the moment

  • I don’t like your thumbnail. Holding your stomach skin like that shows girls they shouldn’t have literal skin on their stomachs. I love the video and the messages and I also understand the concept of an attention grabbing thumbnail. Honest feedback with love and support!

  • By using fibroids solution, results can be seen immediately. All my symptoms was gone away in just Four weeks. On top of that, there were no signs of my big.2 centimetres and 8.5 centimetres fibroids.. I Google this plan last month, name is Hαmjot Sυnu
    good luck

  • I’ve realised on my own that indeed my body gets used to some exercises at the gym and I’m trying to change that. Soo thank you for your other advice too, was so helpful❤❤

  • Can you have regular periods? With PCOS? I have an annoyingly short 28 day cycle very predictable but I have all the other symptoms of PCOS.

  • I weigh with the same scale. In the morning. In my birthday suit so I’ll have no weight of clothes. I had my last boyfriend tell me that you’re supposed to weigh at night because of fluid or something. Even then I was like you’re either dumb or stupid because everyone knows you weigh lighter in the morning before breakfast.

  • Heidi, do a video on rebounding. Rebounding is the one exercise I can stick to, because I’m a stay at home mom, home-school and babysit Littles, it is hard to get out the door. I generally do a very active health bounce for about 50 min. 5 days a week. Muscles popping out in my arms, abs and legs with this alone! I am curious about how many calories that would burn. My body is historically sluggish. I gain slowly, but rarely lose. I am now up 100 lbs overweight. Would love advice. I began rebounding in Feb. and dropped some pounds but they keep dancing back and forth. Trying to get the right combo for my body. (btw, I am hypo-thyroid). Thanks for the above video. Very well said.

  • Powerful info! Thank you so much for sharing this! When working with PCOS patients, I’ll recommend intermittent fasting as part of their protocol.

  • My husband is not on my whole food plant based diet, makes it harder for me. He wants the foods and desserts, ice cream, things I know not to eat. Makes it hard to say no thank you.

  • In regards to cutting out sugar. What would you count as sugar? Because everything has a bit of sugar in so is it just sweets, cakes, biscuits etc? Would you count things like honey, jam or even like baked beans as sugar? Just curious. xx

  • I’m 19 and I have adhd it doesn’t seem like u do I can’t relate I’m really trying to bc I’m struggling at life rn but u seem the exact opposite of adhd

  • I went through years and years of PCOS with not one doc suggesting I get tested, till my sis went through med school and told me my symptoms added up. I feel so annoyed that so many docs are treating people without educating themselves. Understanding what I was going through helped me look up ways to feel better without meds. Thank you for sharing your experience!

  • Good points, saw all of these repeated many times in books while i was going through self-help phase of my life.
    What I don’t see adressed very often is an extreme aversion to anything of this kind that could potentially help.
    This is something i’ve been struggling to overcome for a while. Like, yes I know that I should be working out in the morning and have a routine, but for a lack of a better term its almost agressively lame and even the thought of me doing that stuff makes me cringe so hard.
    Anybody has the same problem?
    I had periods of my life when I implemented this succesfully, took some meditation courses, was jogging every morning, I guess it was better time (i can’t remember how that was, lol), but now thinking of me back then makes me uneasy.

  • I have this condition and it’s sad because I want to have children and I’m afraid I’ll never be able too. I just started taking Vitex (2 weeks ago) & Don Quai (which is know the help regulate female hormones) I hope that this works bc I feel weird that I don’t have a monthly cycle. Have hope ladies and don’t let the doctors keep you in their gerbil wheel of sickness!

  • I am really glad I am looking at this. Even though I do not relate to other cis white straight males, I LIKE THIS GUY. I ma currently finishing my degree in Public Health Epidemiology and needed to get programming experience. At the same time I realize I do have ADHD and have been seeing a professional. My consult for a specialized consult is 3200 dollars. During the time of Coronavirus, I just do not have that extra money lying around since I am a bartender and without health insurance. This guy makes me feel like I can do it, don’t know why but yes. He is extraverted and needs scheduling and still is good at programming. You do not need to be A type to follow your passions. Amazing video.

  • O dear Lord. You just summed up all my symptoms.
    I also noticed that being on keto definitely helps.
    I need to transition back into it.

  • I absolutely love fabletics leggings. They honestly hug your body in such a flattering way, helps boost your confidence. Personally, inspires me to go to the gym. ❤️

  • I just wonder if you took meds as a kid, if that gave you the “function boost” as an adult? I’ve taught myself too, but I never figured out my ADHD until I was in my 30’s! The harder I’ve worked, the worse it’s become. No way I can have afternoon meetings! Lol Therefore I’ve found I’m definitely better on medication…myself, function, mood, productivity, routine, SO MUCH better! It’s interesting I hear half/ half about this, I just wonder if that’s a connecting factor??! What’s everyone’s thoughts?��‍♀️��

  • Heidi please I’m begging you, how do you get your hair to look like that? It always looks on point! I have long hair and I look like I’ve been dragged through a bush backwards:)

  • I have an eat smart scale and that is the first scale I have ever had that matches what I weigh in at the doctor’s office. I used to have scales that showed a 5-10 pound difference from the doctor’s scale but this one is always accurate.

  • Thank you very much for sharing this. I really needed to hear this. I don’t want to take medication and have struggled as an adult more then I did as a teen.

  • I have lost 6.5lbs in 4 months on slimming world. I’m a yoyo. gain lose gain lose. Hoping for my stone award next week but im sick (full of a cold) and I binged on Monday night! I’ve got a target and its 204lbs (14lbs lighter). Then its onederland in 5 weeks time! I’m kicking ass

  • I’m starting to follow your channel. Thank you for your content! I love how authentic you are and the message you put out there is really amazing.

  • Also common for a lot of women to retainin more water a few days to a week before the period starts do to pms. Magnesium supplements helped me a bit with that but not 100% so I don’t see a point in checking my weight during that time except if I wanted to know just how much extra water I retained that month, but it’s not fun seeing the number go up even knowing the reason for the gain

  • just watched your beauty secrets video from over a year ago and I also struggle with keratosis pilaris on my arms and legs. It is probably the thing I am most self concious about and I was wondering if you have found anything that helps reduce the bumps instead of covering them up? I have tried so many lotions and oils and nothing seems to work for me.

  • I love how the way you motivate me ahhh:(( today marks the end of my 2nd month at the gym and I lose 15 lbs because of your videos ahhh you’re just sooo inspiringggg ❤️ real influencer��

  • I really loved this video more than others because it really resonated with me. I’ve struggled to lose weight for the past 2 years (and initially gained 30 lbs when I went vegan). I’m very slowly seeing the scale budge but your right. I have been allowing those “bad foods” in my diet a couple times a week and for awhile was addicted to fast food (vegan, but still). I cut out all fast food and potato chips (my biggest weaknesses) and I’m starting to notice that I don’t even want fast food anymore. I can walk right by the chip aisle and not be tempted.
    I believe the weight loss is right around the corner. I’m happy to see these changes in my life that I never thought would change.

  • Watching extreme weight loss over and over motivated me and I. Now training 6 days a week and I’ve had tremendous results�� thank you guys for doing what you do.

  • I wish you would have put the scale in the same place and measured to see the difference. Floor level plays a HUGE, and as a viewer I can’t tell how much was contributed to one

  • my scale is for sure broken. I usually weigh 60kg. but a few days ago when i weighed myself is said 48 kg and that’s not accurate at all. and now when i weighed myself i weigh 56kg. it’s really frustrating not knowing my weight

  • I went to obgyne last december. And she just took my bp, look at my weight and my dark knucles. Then says i have pcos. It’s just so weird. She gave me 7days med to have menstruation and 6month pills. Just that?

  • Hello, first time on your channel:) I was diagnosed today with PCOS. So I am now doing more research to understand all the information that is out here. my questions is what does the plastic and the perfumes have to do with PCOS? (confused girl here) lol

  • I’m 15 and i already have ADHD and I had a severe concussion, now I dont know how I’m gonna do as a freshman next year. I’m scared now, I dont know what to do. I also have 3 broke ribs know so I dunno if the exercise thing is gonna do much.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I love your content so much and you’ve become literally my favorite youtuber. You’re such an inspiration and the world needs more people like you! Thanks for everything ��������

  • Did You Know Hormonal Imbalances Are Behind Every Chronic Illness?

    #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicdisease #chronicfatigue #chronicconditions #cancer #heartdiseases #infertility #hormonalimbalance

  • Adhd is nothing more than an idealistic beautiful day planned out(in your head too “busy” to write it down) to only then wake up and realize you have something more fun to do

  • I need help! I am 58. Although I can pass for 45….all well and good. I am petite but muscular… I love to lift! Lately…. I have had strong cravings for…. Cake cookies and brownie. I never over ate or had cravings! I was always a size….8 to 10. Now I think about food a lot and I am scared!Please advise!?!

  • I made it 7 i only remembered Avocado Scanned the comment section and wondering about your hair color. I cant medidate i just cant

  • It took me a long time to figure out that I have to place my scale in the exact same place and on the exact same tiles every time. Just a tile or two over can be several pounds different!

  • I appreciate you mentioning NSVs. Those are more important to me than the number on the scale. NSVs are your hard work translating into REAL LIFE, which is the ultimate goal anyway right? ❌⭕️❌⭕️

  • I disagree and think that when you are just starting out you SHOULD track your calories and weigh yourself. You shouldn’t obsess over it but you should hold yourself accountable. At least for me, I’ve lost over 50 pounds and tracking helped me become more mindful of what I was eating so I didn’t overeat and I think a lot of people just starting out have that same problem. I think intuitive eating comes after you gain the skills and knowledge of foods by tracking and paying attention to labels.

  • I never liked the normal meditations, I tried them many times, always hated it. But I love to stare at nature and listen to lounge music. It brings me down and gives me such inner peace and happiness. Especially if I can look at trees in the golden hour agianst a blue sky. Its really easy to not think about anything while looking at trees. This is my personal meditation. Maybe it helps someone.

  • I think I have really problem when I listen to music I think my mind acting like a filter and chooses to me which instrument should I listen to, I really surprise when someone immediately recite the song،I am gritting out of whole song with one or two instruments, so I repeat it, is it normal.? ������

  • Thank you for this. My weight was a bit up and down because I was using many different scales and was never consistent about the time of day. It nearly sent me into a panic attack (even though I was fitting into clothes better).

  • I saw this video to answer my anxiety right now.. I last weighted myself at 62 and now I’m at 65 but many says I loose so much, looked fit and I see my collarbones now and my clothes are loose also…. THIS ANSWERS MY QUESTION

  • The part where you mentioned about the water retention really helped me! I would always weigh myself right after I showered and I got really discouraged because the number was high but it was probably my skin holding in all that water! Thanks for the tips!

  • Lucky for you you were diagnosed at 8, for some of us who are 41 and still waiting to be diagnosed we have used up most of the chemicals we did have to make us happy by over drinking or eating or drug taking and now we dont have the capability to be as wonderfully motivated as you. As hard as I try to do everything you advise it lasts 3days and then procrastination kicks in, then the self loathing then the depression and in a week it happens all over again! Life is just harder for some than others. You were blessed at not getting addicted to other things before figuring out you could do it without medication.

  • To stop me feeling bored watching this I put the speed at its highest >>2x, I’m not being treated for ADHD is this a sign I should be?

  • You look so amazing….I am watching this at 2am, following a day of self sabotage. I am 53 years old and over 100lbs overweight and signed up for another fitness challenge that I so want to win but i am fighting against a lifetime and bad habits and living on auto pilot. I dont know if you will actually see this and yet I needed to reach out. How can I lose a whole person to become someone I don’t know?

  • I’ll be honest. I think you sound spammy. More a YouTuber than a straight out business type, unless YouTube is your busness. Saying you were a millionaire at 27 didn’t help

  • My scale hasn’t moved in 3 weeks since I started weight training again, trying to lose 10lbs. But I’ve lost almost 2inches off my waist!

  • Oh my goodness you remind me so so much of myself! I used to be in the exact same place and was so obsessed with looking like the “typically fit” person (ie super ripped, obvious abs ect) and went to such extremes only to be met with disappointment 95% of the time. I don’t believe in making excuses and I 100% believe I’m capable of getting to that “ideal” aesthetic. It’s not ‘cause of my metabolism or body type BUT getting to that type of body is simply not healthy for me mentally. Therefore I decided to let go of the aesthetic obsession. And here’s the thing: WHY and when did fitness become all about aesthetics?? It’s about caring for yourself and being strong! I definitely still struggle with body image from time to time but once I stopped focusing on aesthetics and started focusing on how I felt and progressing my actual strength it changed my life to be honest! My fitness journey is at its best rn because of my mindset! One thing that really made me reflect (saying this here ‘cause ik you’re a Christian girl and so am I) is that I felt my obsession become somewhat of an idol. I never got to the point where fitness was replacing God but it took over a HUGE part of my mind and I felt as though I was living for fitness vs living for Christ which was NOT where I wanted/want to be!
    Just wanted to let you know you’re definitely not alone and that I appreciate having someone who I feel is walking along side me in a way!

  • I don’t look at the weight actually I look at the fat percentage and it always fluctuates no matter how much I train/cut calories which is kinda disappointing

  • Naked first thing in the morning before food or drink xD but I have a taylor scale so now I want one more accurate because that one was so far off

  • Thanks. I’m 61 and only received the diagnosis. Been crying allot and feel angry and sad for giving my self a hard time all my life for being me and getting and being so missinderstood. I more of a dreamer type at times, or hyper at others. I get zones out and tired really easily and can’t focus. I need a coach badly.

  • Thank you so much, I was thinking about starting to take medication, but I’m not sure completely due to the side effects of them. I feel blessed to have found you and validated because I was doing some of the things already, thank so much. Actually I can feel how the anxiety is going down and off. Lol awesome

  • I am here because i failed the bar exam. I have done the 9 things he suggested without any advice or even before i watched this video. However, it was already too late since only did those for 2-3 months before the bar exams. I felt hope after I watched this video, it made me feel that I am not alone, and that i am on the right track. Now, for the next couple of months I will do it again and I hope that I will make it this time. Thank you Sir Dan Martell.

  • Weighing myself everyday was one of the worst things I’ve ever done. It screwed up my mental health, and was not a good habit I was making. For anyone on a fitness journey, I recommend weighing yourself maybe once a week. It will give you a good idea of the direction your on, without being sad daily because the scale only moved 0.5 lbs. Just some advice from me:) Totally agree with Jeanine.

  • I started an instagram account (sabrina_plantbased) to share my pcos journey re. Weight loss and adult acne. Pls. Follow me if you want to know more about my struggles in the past. Sending love & light, Sabrina

  • I LOVE YOU I ALMOST CRY, I was about to kill myself by doing all those wrong thing, thanks for telling me it’s normal and to improve ❤

  • Oooh my God, I have all those signs you are talking about,I have gained weight,terrible acne,mood swings…Thank you very much for this information,I felt so alone….

  • I’m watching this now at the gym and we are literally wearing the exact same Fabletics outfit!! Love Fabletics and think they’re a great band!!

  • All great tips! My favorite are #9 and #10.
    My problem is resisting sugar and I’ve recently tried to reduce it. Can you share how your journey has been?

  • This acne guide AcneCureOnline. Com was very informative and helpful. I often go through gentle adult acne and this guide discusses all the possible solutions for mild to severe acne whether natural procedures or otherwise. I prefer the natural way of treating them and I found out on this guide the treatments that work efficiently.

  • I got two scales once.They had a difference of three kilos. I get scales aren’t perfect but the difference shouldn’t be three kilos.

  • I wish you would’ve put the supplements on the screen…. like am I even spelling what I’m hearing right? “Radiola Intrisangra”?????

  • What really sucked about adhd for me is that haft way through the beginning is started thinking about random stuff then when he said if you made it this far congratulations and I was like ������

  • Even when I’m not losing weight (plateau) I feel and sometimes see my body changing. I’ve been 142 this whole month and I’m not able to break it lol. My body might just want a breather, I’ve been on a weight loss journey for almost a year and have lost 63 pounds. Trying to be happy with my progress instead of upset that I still have 12 more to go.

  • If I would fall asleep everyday with a book on my chest, then not only would I be pissed that where should I continue the story because the pages would be all F’d up and. Then finally my book wouldn’t last long because I turn so much when I’m sleeping��

  • 3:25 my close friend still doesnt get my diet till this day because i eat like that… “you eat a lot, but at the same time you don’t really, and i don’t get it”

  • can you do one for ADD? i’ve been searching the internet for so long and can’t find anything that can help me since i ran out of medication during you know… quarantine and i’m getting homeschooled for quarantine too…

  • Thank you Ryan… JoseTheVegan on YouTube here, great video once again!
    My downfall has been potato chips. I can’t put those down once the bag is opened! I just don’t buy them anymore!
    Thanks and best regards!

  • Ryan, such a good video! I’m going to concentrate on not relying on the scales so much for results. I want to lose about 10 pounds and in a little over a month, I’ve lost 4. I was hoping for more based on all the wonderful testimonies I see on YouTube. I now realize that this is MY path and I am happy with it. Sometimes I need a booster about food. I eat oatmeal for breakfast, starch and veggies for lunch and maybe some oatmeal at night for a snack. Please tell me what you think about this way of eating. I appreciate you!
