  • Hi Bobbie
    Found your channel yesterday as I was looking for weight watchers recipes, I am so glad I found you!
    Very inspirational and just what I needed! I have been trying to loose weight……..for a lifetime and have tried all the diets and also weight watchers too!!! Looking at you I have picked up a lot of inspiration and am on my way to loosing weight and this time I am not going to give into anything.
    I have subscribed to your channel ��

  • Oh my gosh you are such a blessing! I so much needed this as I’m struggling and hate myself! Thank you for being so real and raw! I have hope now �� God bless you as you look beautiful!

  • Bobbie what color program are you on? I’ve been inspired by you. Thank you! I’m a pear shaped also and I get discouraged too and so totally relate to the photos comments you made. I’m proud of you! I hope you are doing well with this crazy year of 2020.

  • did you count calories or just the points? Because if you ate just healthy foods you could go over your calories needed to lose weight. Do you avoid buying “junk” food at the grocery store…. or do you allow “cheat” foods in your house? I would’ve guessed you weigh around 150-160.

  • Bobbie! You are so charming and genuine! Thank you so much for sharing your story and your thoughts on what worked and what didn’t. I’ve been on Weight Watchers several times over the years. My hubby and I were trying to determine what we should do together both over 50 and both needing to lose a bit and I think this video brought a lot of clarity. Bless you! Keep on crushing it you’re amazing!

  • I started going to the gym 4 years ago. I love Zumba and dance2fit. I also do Tabata…I hate it!!! BUT I do it. I really need to get my food under control, that has been harder for me. My husband is a whopping 5’6″ and weighs 145 pounds. I out weigh him by 60 pound and am 2″ shorter!!!!! He eat like a horse and never gains a pound, I can look at what he eats and gain 10!!!!

  • Thank you so much for this video. You are truly an inspiration to me and have helped me. I’m approximately 1-1/2 months on the keto diet. It’s also overwhelming for me to record my macros, have started a couple of times and stopped each time. I’m 71 years old, have been overweight since about 52 when I gradually went up to 80 kg (176 lbs) from 114 lbs. I did Dr. Oz’s 2 week weight loss diet and went down to 144 lbs but didn’t stay longer than 1 year. Since doing this keto “diet” I am at 144 lbs again and have much more energy and am not depressed like I was before, a lifetime ailment. To make a long story short, I’m grateful I chose to view your video! Thank you❤️

  • Thank you for such a wonderful video! <3 I've tried keto off and on and just can't seem to stick to it. I think I'll try WW! I'm also a teacher, btw!

  • Just found your channel and I must say I appreciated this video. I started keto (not strict) about 6 wks ago and you inspired me to keep going. My weight loss has been slow and is stalling sometimes—maybe I need to pay closer attn to what I’m eating.

    Thanks for your tips and for being so candid and relatable. Your video was informative and enjoyable…and I just subscribed ��

  • The last thing Josh said about taking a BIG Sledge Hammer and letting it fly at the accepted norms….people, as many of us know, are quite defensive about their meat eating. Do you go hard or soft? I am a Rabbi of a small congregation I am building. We are the first Vegan Synagogue in the US. Not all members are Vegan. But the other week I let the hammer drop about eating meat..and one member said he could not eat meat the entire week because of my speech, while I got some push back from others. So, it is a tricky thing. Josh can get away with it because of his style. I do not have as much leeway so I let my actions and Vegan menus speak for me.

  • I’m so happy to have seen your video. You expressed exactly how I feel at this time. Its extremely hard to start. I’m 54 years old had three children and as most I never had a problem loosing weight if I commit to it. Now I have a good start but something happens along the way that I give up. Maybe its lack of motivation, maybe I’m too hard on myself, maybe results are not as fast as before. Don’t know but what I know is that there must be a way. You expressed exactly to the point of my struggles. Thank you for helping me understand that I’m not the only one and to know that you did it. You look amazing and I can see how much happier you are at this time. God bless you.

  • You are one great lady ��
    Just discovered you now
    You are extremely genuine & helpful
    You got me hooked
    I’m 47 and a new subbie for sure
    You are providing the exact type of content I am looking for
    Thank you for everything
    Love & respect from Egypt

  • I have been wanting to start some program. I am at my heaviest weight ever at 69.
    Very frustrated, blaming my hormone imbalance. I will start to correct that, but your video gave me a strong handle to grasp for daily eating. The point system is so sustainable. Feeling confident now.. will look into Weight Watchers.! Thanks so much for your honesty and willingness to share! You look great!! ����

  • I’m looking for more recent update. Have you been able to keep off this weight, I’m not following ww. But I’m just curious if you are maintaining. I am currently struggling with the last 22 lb which would total 93

  • I can feel his happiness & enthusiasm. You should bring him on time to time for updates. I’m new to your channel so maybe you have…

  • Don’t know how I found you but I’m so glad I did. You are the most sweetest woman that I have come across on YouTube God bless you

  • Sailing on the sea of youtube across the ocean of internet looking for a light house shining in the night to take me to a safe harbour to help me lose the weight! I will be 50 next week and I want to lose the forty pounds I gained during my menopause!!! I am so tired of being stressed out about my weight gain during the past few years and not being able to lose the weight. I watched tons of video about menopause and weight loss and they contradict themselves, they say one thing and the next video says the complete opposite! I am so lost in all this missinformation. Your video is the first that caught my attention and is making me want to try WW!!! is this the solution I have been searching for for the past few years? Please…let it be!!!

  • I have been on WW several times and could not live with the constant counting. That was not sustainable for me. going vegan and reading the starch solution book has worked for me. I don’t necessarily follow a diet from the starch solution but it helped me to realize that bread and carbs are not “bad” for me. I have recently lost 25 lbs and counting. I am 60 years old. So she’s right. you have to find the way that works for you and that is sustainable for you and everyone is different.

  • Such an amazing interview! I especially love how he ended the interview-we need to be knowledgeable about what we put in our mouths. The “why” is so important.! Thanks so much for this interview. I can only imagine how very very proud you are to see all the incredible, life-changing steps your brother has taken to get healthy!

  • Love this! I gained COVID 25��and I am petite. I did 3 day water fast to heal up and now I am back on track. I know my weight number / how I feel when I am my healthy best self. Lost 5 so far, but today I almost said “who cares” world has gone crazy, why not eat to make me feel better? But I didn’t. Great ideas, thanks for sharing.

  • When I watch you speak and your emotions, I can identify so much. I live in South Africa and in 2014 I went on a similar programme to Weight Watchers, called Weighless, which allows you all the food groups in the correct proportion. I have been overweight for all my life, to a more or less degree. I went from 275 pounds to 160 pounds in 13 months, eating bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, etc. I was hardly hungry either. I am also vegetarian and I was 62 years at the time. My whole life changed, people didnt recognise me, I could walk into any clothes shop and buy what I liked, not what fitted. I could also then wear high heels without wobbling on them, and people that I met for the first time never knew that I had ever been obese. I was even a finalist in South Africa for Women of the Year with Weighless. I looked and felt amazing. I also never exercised as like you, was concentrating on the food aspect. However in 2017, my weight started creeping up again, and I am now around 250 pounds again, and feeling horrible. I have started on my programme again and like you suggest, call in my weight every week to somebody that understands. Bobbie, thank your for your tips and honesty. I am doing this one pound at a time, as I did before.

  • Thank you so much for your honesty and good advice! I used to identify as slender attractive woman all my life until I turned 40. Tore my ACL in the gym, then in two years herniated spinal disk in the gym, the got divorced, and around 47 stopped recognizing myself in the mirror. So thank you for showing your emotional side, because I totally get how much it takes from a person when they don’t want to even look in the mirror anymore. And fat is not all we can identify as. Anyway, yes I did try keto, lost 13 lbs but no it is not sustainable for me either. That’s why I started looking for something long term I can do the rest of my life. I’m just starting WW, and thank you so much for the inspiration.

  • Thank you for all your tips and challenges, I thoroughly enjoyed listening. I’ve been over weight for about 2 years so dieting is truly a struggle for me, I’m always going to start my diet on Monday. �� so I truly understand now the struggles. Fifty pounds is what I need to lose and I’m totally unmotivated but I will not have my picture taken and I will not go to functions due to my weight, I’m missing out on so much just because I choose to eat the wrong foods. I’m 58 yr and 5’8, I’ve exercised my entire life until the past 2 years due to a life crises that I blame everything for and i simply need to get over it and take care of myself. I look forward to watching all of your video’s. Thanks again

  • I just joined WW and found your channel. In this video, you comment that 98% ground turkey is zero points on this plan. But did you know that it is for “UNCOOKED” ground turkey? Once it’s cooked, it goes up to 3 points according to my tracker on the purple plan. Can you help me out understanding this? So are sweet potatoes also zero points, but uncooked? That doesn’t make sense. I really want to make this work, but I feel that this seems misleading.

  • Omg Bobbie, i love your beautiful, funny personality, we are very close in age and i can totally relate to everything you are saying, you’re officially my favorite You Tuber, i have done WW years ago and it helped me then i stoped going and then a few years later i went back and they had changed the plan and it didn’t help me anymore, so i just gave up. You have convinced me to give it another try. Thank you! Blessings from ATX! P.S you are so funny �� thanks for making me laugh❤

  • Hi Bobbie, Thank you so much for this video.I have been so down about my weight and I have done ww many times before but because of you and this video I will give it my all. I’ll keep you posted. Actually before I would say I’m starting tmw NO WAY I’m starting NOW. Thanks again. ��

  • Thank-you so much for this video. So glad I have found your channel. Im just starting out (again) on my weightloss and this has just given me so much inspiration. A year off 60 and looking through your videos, this is going to be my go to channel. Time for me now and a massive well done to you. Such a ‘real’ person, thank you ��

  • I love your message! I’m 64 and working on being healthy too. I have found that intermittent fasting works for me. It gives my body time to heal itself without the problem of insulin. I usually wait to eat until 11am and my last meal will be between 5 and 7pm. I’m walking now and my goal is 10,000 steps. Good luck

  • So thankful I found someone closer to my age although your 10 years younger. Glad I found you. Can’t wait to listen to all your video’s. You have real honest sound advice. ����������

  • Love you❤ r Brother so inspirational hope to see him again sometime he can help people to he has helped me listening to him you❤ are my Favorite you❤ Tuber you❤ are helping me in so many ways Thank you❤ i love everything ive learned today i so happy for your brother he made me tear up cuz hes helping me like you are you both are such a Joy to watch and learn from Thank you❤ so much have q Wonderful day to you and your brother he looks Great and sounds of sound mind body and Spirit God Bless you Both ����❤����������������������Thank you❤ Cheri and Nate��������������������������������

  • Congratulations on your 53 lb lost. You are inspiring me to lose this much need weight. I weight the same as you did when you started and I’m also doing WW. I just started watching your videos and they are really great. Thank you for doing this. I forgot mention that I’m 72.

  • You are amazing and so inspiring and honest. I have done every WW program they ever had. I did better on some than others. I’m currently on the Blue Plan. I notice it is taking much longer to see results. I have been a little discouraged because of it. This is exactly the motivation that I needed. Thank you. I feel your pain.

  • I am so in love with this transparent lady. Was looking for a how to zoom better YouTube. Have found life changing and encouraging words. Onward

  • To all, including myself, we must love one another and be there for one another. Jesus loves us all and wants companionship with us. Lets embrace Him today for tomorrow is not promised. He is a God of love and will never leave or forsake you. I pray each one of us believe that Jesus is The Heavenly Father’s Son who died for each and everyone of our sins and God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Jesus is now sitting at the right hand of God and soon and very soon He will be coming again. Accept Him today for this is the greatest gift ever given. Love you all, repent daily, and God bless you all in Jesus name!!!

  • I would sure like to know how tall you are, ’cause I don’t have a visual image of you. I do appreciate your openness. Your “tips” are helpful, and I plan to implement them.

  • I lost 55#’s in 2 years (divorce stress). Have regained 45 in the following 5 years. Problems: 1) I have $ to buy whatever food I want, which often includes pastry and chips 2) I quit my gym after I started a part-time job with irregular hours.
    Solution: 1) I’m beginning a regular walking program 2) I’m starting a diet based on caloric density (so lots of veggies and fruits). I want to include WW ‘s zero-point proteins.

  • You’re just what I need right now. Since menopause I find myself gaining weight that I can’t get rid of! I tried weight watchers years ago and had success. I’m looking forward to future success my eating habits again.

  • Bobbie you are so inspiring. Thank you. I found you today and you are giving me hope. I Started the WW purple program in January and because of the virus I have never been to a meeting. I started with the app and tracking. In spite of that I am still within one lb of where I started, and it’s now June 2020. It’s pretty expensive to have the program and I don’t seem to be getting anywhere. I have been thinking I would just stop it.
    Maybe I need to hear how you have made it work. The FF half and half you suggested may help. My coffee is important to me too and the creaminess is such a part of it. No sugar needed, but half and half had been a must. Your suggestion for having a “go to” meal sounds great and I’m looking forward to finding out more of your videos to find out about that. Thanks again. I’m subscribing now and will see what amazing things you’re doing now since this video is from about a year ago.

  • I just found you! Great video! I just turned 52 and a lifetime member with WW but gained all the weight back. Struggling now to get it all back off. Especially going through hot flashes and anything else peri menopause wants to throw at me ��! Look forward to more videos!

  • This video is so, so good. I have been on WW for a few years, and I am up and down. I know what I need to do, but finding the motivation to do it is the struggle. I can’t seem to find my true “why”. Really appreciate your honesty! Will be staying tuned to your journey!

  • This was what I needed to hear today on my weight loss journey. Thank you. We are the same age nearly and in the same weight loss program but I’ve not been serious with my health-commitment lately. You’ve helped me get back on track!

  • Hi Amanda, love this video. I am brand new to keto and doing my research now. I have to admit it’s a bit overwhelming. I too have an autoimmune disease and lymphedema in both legs. I look forward to becoming part of your utube family. Thank you!

  • Your honesty and candor is SOOOO refreshing and appreciated. I felt like you were telling my story… numbers and all. I’m just getting started, seriously started, at 55 on weight watchers blue and have been discouraged on how hard it is to stay within points even when I think I’m making healthier choices. Thanks for the tips and encouragement — I’m looking forward to catching up on your other videos.

  • I just found you and watched this video, I’m a little late to the party…sorry. Oh my goodness so much of what you said resonated with me!!! Thank you so much for sharing and being so honest. I loved this whole video. Going to go watch more now!!! Thank you ❤️ Susie (52 on WW and nowhere near goal…but feeling motivated and inspired by you)

  • I hope all these people succeed. Its sad henry died. They deserved very good lives. they worked hard and well unlike other lazy fatasses on that show.

  • If you truly love someone you should support what’s best for them, yeah you’re attracted to larger women but if it’s affecting their health then you should encourage them

  • I loved Laura Perez’s story!!! She was always my favorite on the show. She was beautiful but she is just glowing after losing the weight


  • Basically all people gained weight because of emotional breakups in their early life…thats how heartbreak can really change someone life������may god blese them and also heal their hearts ������

  • Zahlen was amazing. She knows what the best for her. Your health is more important than a relationship that will slowly killing you

  • Wow after hearing this I think I may have HS too. You may have changed my life!! I’m not afraid to go to a dermatologist now. THANK YOU…THANK YOU ❤️��

  • Gosh, what a profound video!! I cried throughout. Restarted BLE yesterday 2 weeks after my dad died. One of the last things he said to me was,” My god, look how fat you are!” I tried not to cry; feeling like I disappointed him and forgetting all the wonderful things I contributed to the world in my 66 years. Doing this for me, by the way. This truly is an awesome journey, life is; and want to be part of the living as long as I can. Thank you both so much for this!! What guardian angels you are, Rob and Susan!

  • Powerless over lasagna. I can relate. I hope to see this way of eating spread in my family. Congratulations, to your family. Thanks for sharing.

  • Awesome! Living proof of BLE success! Love the part about a change of heart.
    So happy for you and the fact your still here for your family….new beginnings, love it!
    Wear it well!��❤️

  • I downloaded the Eat to live book and am soaking in ALL the information! I loved when you guys talked about food addiction and how quickly you can fall back into it. I have been trying to go wfpb for over a year now and my food addiction continues to control my life. Hearing people actually see it for what it is an ADDICTION is huge. Thank you for your amazing videos!

  • Thank you for this video. I started going through a detox in my first week and it was like your brother said, it feels like the flu. With the coronavirus crap going on in the media I was having anxiety thinking I was really sick! Then I watched this video and immediately put my mind at ease. I’m on my second week and I’m still detoxing and I still feel shitty, but I feel better than last week.

  • Thank you so very much for posting this video. I had gastric bypass 4 years ago when I was at my highest weight 254 lbs and got down to 180. I’m now 207 dealing with 30 lbs of regain and just started WW. I’ve been in the mindset that the older I get the harder it is for me to lose weight. Your video has invorgated me to think I can do this, regardless of my age. Thank you.

  • What will stay with me is the belt, it was a great visual. But I loved the whole video. Because Nate hasn’t been doing this for long, he can remember the struggles and feelings from the beginning. I’ve been dabbling, now I’m ready to bump it up.

  • Thank you for all you do, for being real and saying when you have those bad day. Makes me feel like I am not a failure when I have a bad day.

  • August 1st 2018 right after my 45th birthday I decided to go strictly plant-based. So I started juicing 5 lb of carrots a day (that made 32 oz of juice) along with one apple, two cucumbers, 4 pieces of celery, 8 ounce bag of spinach or kale, 1 beat (that made an additional 16 oz of juice) so about a total of 48 oz of juice per day. I would snack on fruits vegetables like cucumber celery oranges apples and I would eat one plant-based hot meal a day. I did this to feel healthier not really to lose the weight. but within four months I lost 80 pounds and I was never hungry also two months into this I started purchasing raw Juiced wheatgrass powder and adding it into my juice. I’m on month 8 now and I just keep feeling better and better also when I first started this I was sleeping 8 to 8 and 1/2 hours now I’m sleeping about 5 hours I’m feeling totally rested. Now when I eat I get energy before when I ate I would feel tired. That’s a little bit of my story and I don’t think I ever want to go back to the way I was eating because I feel so good now. Good luck on your journey and God bless

  • Hi girl:) I also follow Thomas, I am a beginner on keto, already doing research, and Thomas knowledge. I am slowly adjusting my diet, leaving out one by one thing I can’t have anymore.

  • If his detox only took a month, he is EXTREMELY lucky. For most, this takes years to heal, physically and especially emotionally bc food is THE #1 drug most of us have used our whole lives to manage our emotions. Some of my most difficult healing on this diet has happened between months 12 to 30 on this diet. It concerns me when people state that they feel good after a week or month in this lifestyle. Those cases are rare, for most of us, it’s going to take 2-3 years. Listen to Dr. Fuhrmans ninja levels of accomplishment. That says it all. Commit, do the work, and it will ALL be worth it long term.

  • There are many reasons I do NOT eat meat in any form at any time. I am a whole food plant-based no oil organic vegan.
    and THAT is what works for me physically/emotionally and every way. This way is also what I teach my clients. Dr. F’s program, as well as Dr. John McDougall’s Starch Solution AND doing a daily 18 hour intermittent fasting regimen, have worked wonders for me.

  • I wish my sick family started this yourney but they won’t…. i have done it all by myself and after 5 years i still know nobody who is a vegan or nutritarian.

  • Nate, you are great!!!! Your Story gives me so much hope for my son and for me too. I’m really looking forward to hear more about your journey ❤

  • Your brother’s enthusiasm is infectious! I hope you do a follow-up with him occasionally to see how he’s doing and what else he’s learned.

  • You are a great little Sister and congratulations to your brother!!! Yayyy!!! I really enjoyed his honesty!!! I really wish I had someone like you two to depend on and help each other during a time of struggle! Great video, I truly enjoyed watching!!! Thank you for sharing!!!☺

  • I am jealous that you went back to Michigan for the 4th of July! I am stuck here in Texas, not that it’s all that bad, but it’s definitely not home:-) and your brother is super cute!

  • I have watched you and others explaining what to eat and how to make the change. But no one thinks much about seniors and living alone on a very limited fixed budget. I wish I had learned all this years ago before I did damage my heart and developed a pre diabetic/type 2 diabetic condition. Being someone that is TRYING to learn to cook and how to cut back the recipes, it is a lot to learn. I am not giving up even if I just fix the most boring food. One other thing you guys need to look at seriously. At 70 years old it is almost impossible to eat the amount of veggys and the size of salads you fix would last me at least 2 day and I was a very big eater up to just a few short years ago. I wish one of you would address the situation with someone living alone and NEVER cooked. I would eat junk (fast) food or buy pre made meals from the store to eat. I want my last years to be one that is happy, but honestly, I am spinning my wheels trying to figure out how to cook for myself and how much a older senior citizen should and can eat. I wish I had a daughter that was a knowledgeable as you and and a huge GRATZ to your brother and to you for helping him in his journey. Thx for all your video’s. Another concern is people on a very fixed budget in older age. SSI does not go very far. I will quit rambling on, but thx for you help and concern to all trying to learn. BTW Not pre diabetic any longer and off all meds. BP within and normal range I have lost over 50lbs in just over 4 months!!

  • Hi Cheri, It was amazing seeing both of you in action making people have the big mind shift about lifestyle. My question is, I have been dropping weight constantly on ETL lifestyle. I am so sure about that i want to continue doing this.However, i wonder what should be my healthy weight. Are there any resources that may be able to guide me? Thanks and love for your work

  • The same happens to me!! I feel so sorry for the animals!!!!!! And as an argentinean, who had so much beef all my life, it is a big thing.

  • Nate knew his daily weight (up or down) and I noticed that in a lot of your videos, you knew your daily weight too. Is this part of the programme as daily weigh in’s do my head in

  • I’m so happy for Nate:). One day at a time, he keeps choosing to create the life and health he wants. You both do! And you show how possible it is! I love the relationship you have with each other, and it is wonderful that you have been so supportive of him on this journey. It’s great that he has educated himself along the way to stay inspired and committed to this path. I do that too, watching documentaries, your YouTube channel, etc. It has such an impact on our minds and thoughts and actions. As I’ve heard…it’s what you eat, what you drink, and what you think! Of course, there’s more to life than that, lol, but it’s an important component. Thank you both for this interview!:)

  • I’m going to eat everyone else’s chicken… ha ha ha that’s so cute. I know I’m going to watch this video 1,000 times… such great and inspiration here. Thanks Cheri and Nate! Also, Cheri, what did you mean when you said you aren’t vegan? Do you mean you’ve adopted the term nutritarian in favour of vegan (cause of the emphasis on nutrients?)

  • If only we all had a sister who was as kind, compassionate & healthy food knowledgeable as Cheri we’d all be very lucky indeed.
    Congratulations to your brother!! He’s well on his way to enjoying a long & healthy life. Wishing him continued success.
    I love this nutritarian/vegan lifestyle I’m living now. I think I’ve inspired a few family members myself. When you talked about navigating the grocery store that struck a chord with me. Also, that ridiculous (yes, I said it) food pyramid. Following that is not the key to good health. Okay, I’m done…lol. Thanks for sharing your knowledge guys!! Loved the interview!

  • Anyone else cry during this interview? What will it take for the people we love to seek out the truth? Fast food genocide. God bless you both. Thank you. Nates excitement is contagious. You go!!

  • Ps: I learnt 1 of the best tips I’ve ever learnt yesterday (which have completely changed my mind set with cravings!)… when you tell your brain (eg choccy craving etc late at night): “yes, I’d really like some choccy… but what I really REALLY like, is fitting into my slim clothes (or getting on the scales etc etc) & feeling great!” Repeat a few times (or in my case, 2 dozen times!)… & I swear… your brain truly believes it!! Such a game changer & gift of knowledge to/for me!! Xo (if interested it’s on Sean who features Marisa Peer with her talk: “lie, cheat, and steal”) xo

  • I was on Keto lost 10 pounds, I stopped and had a death in the family. I became sad and then outright depressed. Been back on Keto diet 2 days and I got out of bed no problem and did not feel sad at all. I’m staying on Keto

  • Oh my Gosh Cheri!!! My emotions swung so wide during this interview. Nate has such a great way of articulating his experiences with the new eating style (I don’t like the word diet: \ ). What a trooper! He has come so far turning his health around and in such a short time. I loved his concepts of “acceptance” and “learning.” I’d never heard anyone go into the milk thing before! No one believes me when I say that I can smell the dairy in something and it stinks and I come from a dairy family. Sour cream is the WORST. Thanks to Nate for sharing all he has been and is going through. Even a few years in we can all use a fresh perspective, affirmation and encouragement. And thanks to you, Cheri for another wonderful interview. I could just sense the pride you must feel in your brother even before you mentioned it. <3 <3 <3

  • Hiya luvly… Nate’s honesty/transparency is just as pure/heart opening as yours! Thank u both for sharing it ALL & allowing us all to realise… it’s normal & ok to be HUMAN (& no matter how old/how ‘far gone’ we are, we can ALL achieve/maintain optimum health)! ������

  • I just signed up for WW. Used to be on it years and years ago. I am now coming off of a low carb lifestyle (Trim Healthy Mama). That program worked for a couple of years. Then the scale started climbing even though I was still eating on program. Every diet I have been on has been that way. It works until it doesn’t work. Knew I had to change it up in order to get the scale back down. I am 54 and also now approaching menopause so that is also working against me. I am praying that this new WW will work for me. Found your channel and just subscribed since I feel I can get some incite into losing weight when you are over 50. Looking forward to watching more of your videos.

  • I loved this interview and that he was your brother made it even better. My eye opening moment was when he ate the lasagne and then wanted to eat everything and could not stop. I caved to tortilla chips earlier this week and I could not stop eating them then I was into everything the rest of the day and until I went to bed. The next day I felt like crap and had no energy. The only thing I ate off plan was the chips, the rest of the things I over ate like too many carbs and fruit and did not want my salad. Hearing your brother say that made me realize that is why I kept eating.
    Our family is getting together for Thanksgiving and they are already saying can’t you just eat regular these few days. They don’t know with my addictions to food it can take a month or more to get back on plan.

  • Wow, awesome interview! Really helpful and encouraging. Thanks so much for being open about addiction to all things and thank you for your honesty. Loved the ending where he is teasing you about your goodbye. It was also a good point that you can’t chase after someone to get them to change, etc. You sound like you have such a wonderful relationship with each other. You both have such beautiful eyes and smiles by the way.

  • Love this!!! I know exactly what he is talking about. Like exactly!!! Its like we are twins. Ty to your brother for being himself and sharing it with us:)

  • Wow. Powerful video. When Nate described the lasagna incident, the first bite was so salty! But then he just wanted to keep eating and eating, this so describes my life! How that first bite is so disgusting yet still leads to a total binge. Great discussion and very inspiring. Thank you!

  • So so happy for you and so thankful you were brave enough to make this video. Everything helps in this process and I’m a veteran on these processes. Your tips are so very helpful and different from what a lot of ppl say. Thank you.

  • Having family who has struggled with addiction, it is nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Your brother is awesome. Thanks for sharing his story.

  • The two of you are amazing souls. Nate’s journey and sharing his experience is powerful. So real!!! What resonated with me was his comment about being honest yourself and acceptance as I know I have not been honest with myself. Thank you for such a beautifully raw from the heart interview and looking forward to the next installment in Nate’s journey ❤

  • Your brother’s experiences resonated with my ETL journey. Feeling good, clothes fitting better, more energy, etc. Started at 260 lbs and same height as your brother. Eased into ETL so I did not experience the detox symptoms. Also I have been doing 100% ETL compliant for 14 months and down 83 lbs.

  • I really enjoyed your brother’s honesty. I crave salty things and I never thought of the salt being the thing that makes me crave more. I will need to try to change my salt intake. Thanks for your input. Good to have a sister who cares and is smart.

  • Hey guys! Thanks for watching this new video starring my one and only BIG BROTHER NATE!🙂 Comment down below: what part made the biggest impression on you? ������ GET HIS RECIPES HERE:

    (PS Sorry if you noticed that premiere got screwed up, I am still trying to figure how to get it to work perfectly:)

  • Thank you for inspiring me to begin my journey. I just shopped so I can get started. I also ordered some of the ketone products you have added to this video. I will continue to watch you and look forward to hearing more ideas. Thank you for this video.

  • Thank you for your testimony and honesty! I have started keto and in 3 weeks my skin condition improved. Excited to continue this journey!

  • This video is gold! I have watched you a long time but decided I should check some of your older videos (from before I found you).
    People ask me all the time how to do Keto. This is the best, most conclusive video I have seen.
    I have a tendency to just start rambling and overwhelm people because I love Keto so much!
    I will now simply link them to this video!

  • Rob did your weight loss contribute to your divorce? Asking because I had gastric sleeve surgery and a lot of people end up divorced after they lose the weight.

  • Amazing Story!!! So glad you found something that made you feel better. I started keto about 4 years ago. Lost 20 pounds but the best part was the fixing of my autoimmune issues. My triglycerides went from 160s to 40! I followed those names also.

  • Hello… Just wondering how he is doing today? I watched this video and it’s awesome… I started with whole food plant based about 3 months ago and then moved to the starch solution… I actually put on weight with that diet and I finally moved to Eat to Live. I have already lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and really all I did was replace potatoes and brown rice with lentils and beans and cut out breads and pasta.. I Eat a TON of beans and do my own refried beans… I also do Lentils with saracha ketchup and throw that on a corn tortilla… It would be nice to see where he is at! Great video.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I can’t remember the last time I woke up and wanted to get out of bed. I sleep waaayyyy too much! Starting the Eat To Live lifestyle today at 171 lbs. Planning to get down to 120. But I’m most excited about feeling like doing something with my days other than work and sleep.

  • I was 249 at my heaviest. I did very strict keto for a month and lost 40 pounds! I’ve done not so strict keto just tracking on the carb manager app and keeping it under 20 net carbs a day (usually 17 a day) and I lose 7 pounds a month when doing it that way. I feel less bloated! I got down to 171 at my lightest. I’m 188 now and on keto again to drop down to 160( goal weight)

  • Thank you so much for this! I have been following you for some time now, I don’t comment that often! I did keto for a month and I lost 15 pounds but I ended up failing because my mindset was focused on what I wasn’t “allowed “ to have, changing the way I think to “ I no longer eat these foods” has been a HUGE game changer! I’m back on keto as of Thursday! I feel so good! I have so much energy, so much energy that it’s hard to fall asleep at night. I’m awake until 2am the past 3 nights! Any tips to falling asleep at a decent hour? How is Dan, Levi and Lincoln doing? I hope all is well! ❤️

  • This video is one of the best I have ever seen. I started my Keto Diet yesterday. I am doing IF and Keto. I gained over 80-90 lbs when my Thyroid went (Hypothyroidism) and Menopause hit at the same time. I have been trying for 11 years to get back down to where I was. I am ready to kick butt and become a brand new me. Doing this for me and no one else. Thank you for the great video. I don’t think I am going to bother with Macros. Great information.

  • Someone else with HS! Honestly, the weight loss is a great side effect, but I have so much wrong that I thought keto might help.

    Even though it’s terrible, it’s always nice to know I’m not alone, especially in the HS department.

    I’m so happy I found your channel! ��

  • I have been sticking to keto for over a month now and not loosing any weight
    I eat salads and meats but in n the morning I do love my coffee creamy I add two tablespoons of sugar free creamer and two table spoons of heavy whipping cream and a teaspoon of mct oil..could that be stopping my weight loss???! I have been sticking to it the best I ever have and still no weight loss and I have also been working out it’s very frustrating

  • Oh my gosh, I’m just at the end of your video. I felt like you came through the screen and were talking to me. I have been struggling for awhile now. April 1st of 2018 I started WW and I was in really bad shape. I could barely move, I was using a cane if I had to walk for more than a short distance. I was in so much pain. I’m 5 feet tall and I weighed 267 lbs. I was 54 and my son was 14 at the time. I felt so bad because I had spent a lot of his childhood just watching him do things and not participating because I just couldn’t physically do it. I had him when I was 40 and he was a very unexpected but very welcome surprise but my body was just not prepared for first time pregnancy at 40. It really took a toll on me and I really have never been the same since. Anyway fast forward to 2018, I ended up losing 68 lbs. I felt fantastic! I was loving life. I was doing things I hadn’t done in years and I even entered a 5k race (walking, not running! ) which I had never done before. Then life happened. My son got into terrible trouble at school, I lost my job and my mother died all in the space of 3 months! It was a terribly stressful time and the weight started to creep back on as I turned to food to deal with my grief and stress of dealing with my son’s issues and having to find a new job. I have not gaine all of it back but most of it. I am now experiencing the same aches and pains I used to and it’s so disheartening. I’m so mad at myself for letting this happen! I am really glad I watched your video. I almost didn’t because Iwas afraid you were going to talk about how perfectly you follow the plan and how easy it is and I didn’t want to get depressed but you really touched my heart. Thank you for opening yourself up to us. I know that took a lot of courage. Best wishes for continued success in your healthy lifestyle endeavors and your YouTube channel as well. I really enjoy it!

  • I have just discovered your channel. I am in tears. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a video that is real.

    I am so glad I found you.

    Sending you love from Africa

  • thank you so much for sharing your story with us. i have been doing a lot of research and have decided on this diet option too. i am almost 72 and have wondered if my age would be a negative but right now i am trying to eat as much in my refrige that i can use then i will begin to buy keto foods and start my diet as well… probably in about 2-3 days. ty again for sharing and your encouragement as well. God bless you and your family.

  • Hi
    I have obese and have the following:
    1. Lipomas on ankle
    2. Thigh pain especially on long flights
    3. Ear pain
    4. Ridiculously high volume snoring
    Will any of these reverse with keto?

  • That’s what I said to myself.. I “can” have whatever I want… but I choose to not eat that piece of cake or donut etc because I am CHOOSING to try and get rid of my inflammation and extra weight.. love it

  • is very compelling, that helps me. What an incredible video! You are a handsome and well adjusted man, it’s a wonder to me the weight l

  • Your story made me cry. Your raw truth is very touching and I believe it will help a lot of people. I am definitely inspired. Thank you.

  • Thanks for sharing your process. Loved your honesty. I have friend that her mantra is, “Nothing taste as good as skinny feels.” It really helps her. We work in a hospital and patients reward us lots of goodies. It’s so hard to walk past that food for 12 hrs and say no��

  • You are amazing and such an inspiration….. Just got your E book can’t wait to dive in…. YOU GO GIRL!…… <3 Very informative video.!!!!

  • Hi Amanda, new to your channel, love your honesty, 35 year psoriasis sufferer 95% psoriasis free since keto, have a great holiday period, oh, and to date in 11 months i have lost 63kg which i think is around 140 lb in your scale, and my lady has lost 35kg and my son 19 kg,

  • Your. Beautiful. I’m 70yrs my weight is 240lb, I cry a lot I’m depressed all the time, lost my husband,mother,
    Dad and brother, I’m alone I do have 3 children,don’t see them, they work and have families. Now because of
    Virus going around I stay home, don’t have friends. I did volunteer work at a sr group. But it’s been closed since
    March. Once in awhile I get a call from on of the group, I really miss them. That place saved my life when I lost my husband. Anyway I’ve gained some weight, I feel bad all the time,I’ve tried so many diets, WW was one of them
    Since I’ve moved here, well I have to walk with a cane, can’t even keep my house, I admire you for staying with it
    You are beautiful inside and out, I know you’ll stay with it. I can’t see much of a future any more for myself. But
    I’m so proud of you, I live in Dallas,Tx where are you? Have a Blessed life, thanks for sharing ������������

  • You are so inspiring! I have 24/7 full-body pain (for no reason), ADHD, horribly low energy, and anxiety. Meds don’t work. You give me hope. And your dog in the background in the beginning of the video brightened my whole day! LOL

  • Congrats on your weight loss!! I just started lazy keto and have already noticed some changes which is amazing! Keep up the awesome work!

  • Congrats on the 1+ years! I found your YouTube channel searching for a keto chili to share with my family. I can happily say I have become a subscriber; I only started trying to eat ketogenic about a month now, and have lost twelve pounds. I’m still trying to sort all of my options eating this way. Thank you!

  • I just started a few days ago and almost gave up. I had the aweful symptoms. I feel better today in day 3. Funny I came across this video as I was wondering about my portion sizes. I think my portions are to big. But I will learn to find a happy healthy portion soon. Breakfast is my big meal. I’m hungriest at breakfast. Is it ok to have a berry smoothie first thing in am then couple hrs later have cottage cheese. All this before lunch???? Help anyone

  • So amazing…been doing keto on and off and so seen so many videos….I have to say this was a no bs…real video n so powerful to know what ur struggles were n how u are doing ur absolute best to be the best mom. I’m a mom and I know how it feels when all ur decisions somehow are motivated so u can do the best for ur child.

  • Can I ask a question, did you have boils with your skin condition? I get them around my thigh area and my bum it’s gross, my husband doesn’t care but I feel self conscious. I also have dark skin patches which are associated with tyoe 2 diabetes and pre diabetes. I often wonder if I could cure this through diet, I think your the first person to mention this.

  • Thank you! I also have HS and it’s horrible and also NAFLD. I found another video about fatty liver and keto and now you who had HS flares like I do and how keto helped you. I have no other excuse now to try and get myself better but by going keto or in my case lazy keto too because I cannot afford the expensive stuff at this time with six kids total and twins which I just recently had. My oldest has also been diagnosed with Autism that in itself is soo hard. Here’s to a new start and soon a new body to live in!

  • Sorry to keep commenting but this is such a well composed and thought out computation. You are definitely the gold standard when it comes to public speaking on a subject you are so passionate about. You have motivated me to no end…and I am grateful.

  • Yes, this update was perfect and necessary as I am a new subscriber. Thank you for all your research and sharing your experiences and menu’s.

  • This was an amazing video. I just started keto I’m in my first week and this video help me so much. Thank you for sharing your story

  • Wow, I was just watching to find inspiring Keto stories and never expected you to say you have HS. I do as well. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  • Hi. I’m new to Keto, about 1 1/2 weeks now. I’ve lost 12 pounds (Water I know) but have been awfully diligent in my carbs. Yesterday they were very low and am up 3 pounds I have to be patient I know but this is a bit daunting when I’ve been good. Thanks for your videos, they are really helpful. Hugs to you and your family. I’d love to meet your boys and say HI!!!:)

  • Congrats, Mamabear. It really is inspiring hearing you say you didn’t want to feel like a tired, depressed mom. You empower others. Thank you!

  • Just found your channel….have been afraid to do Keto…for a lot of reasons. Will consider it for the long term benefits since so many seem to do well on it. I have a daughter with Autism/ADHD/OCD and would like her to do this as well….we are currently Gluten Free but need to take the next step since so much of Gluten Free is NOT healthy. By the way, I love Thomas DeLauer…he has so much good information to share and how to shop on a budget.

  • Thank you, for inspiring meI have been on & off doing plant based for 20 years but, I am no longer confused about nutrition after learning the science & listening to your testimony so, tomorrow I am making the full commitment to vegan nutritionlove you my brother from another mother lol. ❤️����

  • Dear Dr. Barnard, Josh and the entire staff. As a VEGAN I not only have lost weight but it actually diminished my Parkinson’s mucus and swallowing problem. Congratulations with the AMA and other members and institutions. Your grateful friend, Pam Cota

  • I am that “tiny” girl you referred to. I am well under five foot and at one time weighed ninety pounds. Three children, divorce, death of both parents and one granddaughter later I am almost doubled in weight. I am almost seventy and had given up. Thank you for inspiring me to try once again. You are so honest and kind! May I add that you have a beautiful soothing voice.

  • Excellent interview!! I can sympathize with you on the height aspect of things. I’m 4’11” and I’ve lost 160lbs through a starch based lifestyle and I have about 40-50 more pounds to let go of….more so closer to 40lbs, but because I’m so short, I don’t carry my weight very well. I look MUCH heavier than I actually am.

  • Thank you Josh for sharing your story!! You are very authentic and lovable. Congratulations on your success. Blessings to you and your wife:)

  • a fruitarian-vegan diet is what God intended us to eat, it satisfies and satiates, there’s no worrying, weighing or counting calories, your weight just goes to where it’s supposed to be and you feel well and healthy because you are well and healthy! IT’S MIRACULOUS, for you and for all life on earth and for the betterment of the planet! WIN! WIN! WIN!

  • This was a very enjoyable interview. The guy has such a great attitude and is very personable. A great role model and a perfect choice for giving talks about his journey, and providing hope for others.

  • Yes, indeed, you will never feel better than when you eat whole food, plant exclusive. Aches and pains, symptoms and previous issues all disappear.
