  • I honestly don’t believe most of these are really effective in relieving back pain. I have taken tons and tons and tons of these foods with the hope of just having at least 10% relief of my back pain. The only one that really gave me like 8% relieve was coffee. I’ve also tried thousands of natural medicine over the years and no,no,no,no single natural medicine helps for my back pain. Most of the so-called natural pain medicine is a myth and money-making nonsense. Pharmaceutical pain medicine on the other hand is bad for the liver, heart skin, brain and kidneys. It also makes you constantly tired. A doctor has even prescribed morphine drops. The morphine hasn’t even done a thing except making me extremely tired!!! So on the end of the day I have to make peace with the fact that I will forever suffer.���� Having said that I will always try to eat healthy and avoid sugar salt and anything unhealthy. PS I’ve been struggling with extreme back pain for the last 13 years.

  • Dat Avocado!  Huuuuge! LOL  Where in Canada did you purchase that from?  The 5-packs around here contain less avocado compared to your one! 

  • My endocrinologist didn’t break down what to do just eat healthy and take a weight loss pill ��. This is really helpful to keep it off. I gained back a lot of what I lost, so disappointing.

  • Um all i eat are whole healthy un processed food but i still get bloated after every meal no matter what i eat. + i exercise regularly and drink tea but still bloated every day after breakfast.

  • Even without muscle cramps, or barring what JustOneAsbesto (comment below) said is sometimes the case with these nutrients… I believe these foods are always good to have enough of regularly. Potassium is especially good for heart health. As vegans we get to eat such a great variety of tasty nutritious foods… so many things I didn’t appreciate and never ate long ago. Thanks again for a great informative video:)

  • Lots of plants have inbuilt poisons or antagonists to deter creatures from eating them. Vegetarianism is not necessarily your answer. Some people flourish when they use the “carnivore diet”. I want the amazing beneficial elements in free range, organic meat and vegetables.

  • Am i the the only one who feels like even my face my legs and my arms got larger when im bloated like i literally feel so shitty after eating a great amout of food

  • Hi, MJ. I was wondering what you think about carb cycling for AF? I hear a lot about how Dr. Christensen discusses it in his book on the AF diet.

  • Can you comment if your menstral cycle affected these diet guidelines? Was it easy, harder, no difference to stick to your eating schedule or bland foods?

  • Is it normal to feel a come down or cloudiness in the brain when you have adrenal fatigue? On most days I feel fine but when I get stressed out I begin to feel like something is wrong with my mind.. is that normal?

  • Hmmm.. I am now thinking I had adrenal fatigue for over a year. I was sleeping like over 12 hours a night then still waking up exhausted. I went to the doctor and they took blood for a couple of tests but said things came back normal. And now with this quarintine stuff I have been eating bland eggs black beans rice greens like 2 to 3 times a day for the past 6 weeks and I am doing better and better.

  • For everyone wondering why their belly is still bloated… As nutritionist I’m going to tell you that paying attention to how many times you chewed your food cause if you don’t chew it enough food cannot digest in your stomach so it takes a lot of time to process, when you are eating vegetables and u drink water afterwards u will get bloated. Drink warm water, after lunch don’t rest walk around cause it helps process food faster. If bloating doesn’t stop u should pay a visit to the doctor. If you think that there is something wrong with u pay attention at how many times u go to toilet and do numbers 2 and if it hurts.
