  • 10-20g daily protein intake and a mediocre understanding of fitness. 99% he’s not natty with those abs and chest. Seems like a cool dude though.

  • The only thing I’d recommend is to cut using the microwave! I say this as a graduate student in Physics who studies energy physics.

    Microwaves irradiate water to warm up food and that radiation continues to persist in the food even while you eat it. This has been seen with a controlled water test where microwaved water brought back to room temperature was used to water plants for 90 days and, compared to water that hadn’t been microwaved, those plants had died sooner.

    It was examined that the actual water molecules had split slightly and this had led to irradiated molecules that started attacking atoms in the food, killing them and irradiating them further.

    Instead, cook your oats in a pot with boiling water. The excitation of water molecules at high temperatures isn’t enough to irradiate any of them since that needs such a high temperature and localized focus to knock atoms. It takes longer, but it is infinitely worth it in the long run to keep your body optimally healthy and thrwart the creation of cancer cells!

  • This Vegan diet made me super skinny like “skin and bones” skinny.
    Last 2018 to halfway of 2019 I was 198 lbs until last year of September 2019 I started this vegan lifestyle because of my esophageal illness and liver problems. I have researched the health benefits of having a vegan lifestyle and I must say that it helps alleviate the acidity issues that I always experience and I rarely feel the heartburn.
    My concern is my extreme weight loss which is haunting because I was originally a 198 lbs 6’0 guy but now I am weighing 129 lbs in less than a year of being a vegan. I have tried all sorts of vegan diet meals and worked out almost every day but I am still getting skinnier than ever.
    Please give me some bulking up tips without eating foods that I am not supposed to eat (soy products, spices, and citrus fruits) as a person battling GERD, esophageal, and liver issues.

  • Be more active on youtube bro. You git such a good physique. And veganism will give you the ability to do bodybuilding till yout 50’s

  • I’m no expert but I think claiming the meals are 4 ingredients or less is way off when the “ingredients” are processed foods. I’m just nit picking. 4 items would be less of a false statement.

  • Heyhey, great video. I wondered, do you use any protein powders? I don’t see a lot of protein sources.

    Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I wonder.

  • You should add the sea salt back, Celtic Sea Salt, it’s full of minerals our bodies need we don’t get from food and sweating drains the body of vital minerals. Sea salt replenishes those minerals.

  • The vibes from this video and your eating… routine seems so soothing and peaceful. Want to live a healthy simple life like this when I’m older ��

  • Man, I’ve always had a long distance build, defined abs and slender arms and long legs. It looks like the muscle isn’t really there but it’s just really spread out. Dope video man.

  • Me: Anybody ever heard of protein?
    Everybody here: Nope
    Me: Oh sorry I always thought that was a thing… that your body needs and stuff.

    But oh well there are some beans in your chipotle sometimes xD

    Don’t mean to spread hate, don’t get me wrong. I’m just surprised that nobody seems to be talking about this, since it’s so important and can make such a difference in your performance too!

  • So I interviewed the Chinese guy who designed and makes your wheel roller, how funny is that? I’m not kidding and I’m not schmoozing. His name is LZ Cheng and he came to London as China’s Marathon guy in 2012 Olympics. If you have time you will probably get a kick out of how random it is. Love the shows and keep it up. Putting your screen recording on is a masterstroke. Props to your gf too for filming so much shit! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aXO9qfUu20

  • Love your channel and I’m really glad you’re pretty much a superhuman we live in an exponential time and we can gorge ourselves on delicious healthy food fun healthy things it’s just a matter of habit and I’m helping others subconsciously succeed. Do you doing my own training that isn’t bringing much results especially after years of wanting exponential things like a cryo chamber, EAA’s, Magnesium, Burn supplement, etc to increase recovery and get me to my goals in a more long-term Safeway. I currently struggle living in family of five and a single mother to be able to go to the gym eat enough food etc. H.O.P.E team (Helping Other People Excel) Will solve the problem I have and for numerous people. This whole team will spread the love of God and help people who live in a bad situation no longer have processed foods emotional pain lack of support etc. I need your help solving untapped human potential which is one of the worlds biggest problem I’m solving. If in anyway shape or form you can help me live in a more fun environment with superhumans not having to worry about training food transportation etc. thank you for taking your time to read this and if you’re Open minded and want to help or know more you can watch this message to millionaires video I made thanks�� https://youtu.be/d4pKoWmdfno

  • Sir i m indian and i dont have any professional coach. will you tell me how to train myself. you are my ideal. And how i contact to you

  • As much as I want your channel to grow, there is one part of me slightly sad that you would stop replying to me in the comments section.

    You are the only YouTuber that always replies, makes us feel good.

  • You’re an inspiration bro. Definitely breaking the stereotype of the weak, pale, and emaciated vegan. I can’t wait to get to the grocery store and start restocking my fridge and cabinets. Keep killing it bro!

  • dude you skipped over the part about how blessed you are with your genetics. Im only 155lb and have to eat about 5X what your eating to maintain weight

  • What if your an immigrant living i europe their foods are not really local to my people. Does that matter? can any body answer?
    p.s i am from north africa

  • Eating my postworkout smoothie made of (but not only) kale, beet, turmeric, dried berries and spirulina makes me enjoy this video even more. I usually eat this combination (I workout fasted, eat after exercise) and I’m rarely tired the next day, I can just go on 2hours every single day which includes weightlifting, boxing and running. I may rest after super high intensity workout like running longer distance (20km+) or Spartan race day. I’m vegan, obviously ��

  • Ayurveda is the biggest load of crap,It has been debunked by scientists many times.For example what if u live in a dessert? Should you not eat at all?

  • Good to see someone giving me tips who isnt juiced up to the eyeballs…especially as i dont eat meat either. I’m tryna do the opposite to you though (not tryna eat that much carbs as im trying to cut and reduce insulin in my body).. but those seaweed parcels are a good shout. Also been contemplating yoga too

  • So in the end this is a bunch of crap food. It destroyed his stomach in a little over a year. He’s not vegan anymore. See his subsequent video.

  • Vivek if you can also please help people working in night shift on how they consume food. I am new to your channel but watching your videos motivates me to study Ayurveda. It is my request if you can help night shift workers and come up with some videos on we can maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thank you and keep up the great work. ����

  • What is the best way to lost lots of weight? I read loads of superb opinions on the net about how Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost tons of fat. Has any one tested out this popular weight loss methods?

  • As expert, I do think Custokebon Secrets is good way to lost crazy amounts of weight. Why don’t you give it a shot? maybe it is going to work for you too.

  • Vegetarian food hardens the heart. We should eat non veg atleast once in 40 days. Though eating non veg food excessively is not encouraged.
    Even the ancient Hindu scriptures advocate eating non veg food.

  • Slow down guy, sounds like you’re on drugs how fast you’re talking, it’s annoying as shit. I had a quick look at those meals, look really nice.

  • Does this man use pre-workout? And if so, which one? I’ve been working out every day for about 2.5 months and I use pre-workout almost everyday and I’m a little worried about taking too much.

  • hey really quick lol fuq all of this. eat steak and only steak 7 times a week for every meal. one cheat day a month and watch the gains roll in

  • very nice bro! ah i just wanna ask how you got to know your amount of diet or other food that you need per day for the body fittness

  • There is no system breakfast in ayurveda…
    Dont fool people in name of Ayurveda…
    Which book do you read….
    Or it’s all internet knowledge

  • I am just going vegan as an athlete and I’m super lazy with food. I eat the same thing everyday lol. This video is so helpful, thank you!

  • Interesting why are your Indian ‘eating’ culture so much alike with Chinese? In Chinese traditional medicine we also have this Cold and Hot nature of foods. Are we more alike or did one of us adopt this Ayurveda way of life/eating?

  • Hello there! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (google search it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you considered Custokebon Secrets? I have heard many unbelivable things about it and my friend lost tons of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

  • I hear lots of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets. But Im uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried using this popular weight loss methods?

  • Joey,
    The background music you chose for this video is a little loud, and made what you were trying to break down hard to hear, adding confusion to a mind that is already working to retain the information you’re providing. Great information and tips.

  • Excellent concisely packed information on diet. The packaged food was a no no as per your video then why this recommendation of proteins for him and her��

  • He says eat fresh food and then he gets the sponsorship of oziva! We should not eat stored food like oziva as per sattvik rules. It might also have ingredients that’s not available a few km away from one’s home! Hypocrisy ka bhi limit hota hai ��

  • I would love to obey all the factors u mentioned in ur video, but Maggie is extremely nostalgic….�� can I have cheat days for it?������

  • Watching this video for research purpose and eating banana with crackers. lol! Eyes wide open when he mention food to avoid during late night, which is banana. Guilty as charged.

  • Everyone keeps saying how they gained weight but I’ve lost 12 pounds since quarantine. XD Quarantine has just helped me stay away from my friends who usually try to tempt me with fast food. I’m 2 pounds away from the goal I set over a year ago. I still have weight to lose but I’ve already started ordering some t-shirts in size small. I can’t wear them yet but maybe in a few weeks I will.:) I’m super excited and honestly just overall really happy with how my life has improved in the last few months.

  • This made me take a good look on my lifestyle, though my parents made me follow most of it, I still think that this is definitely moving. Thank you! I’ve watched everyone of your video, they are all very helpful. Thank you!

  • So what if you eat 2-3g of Protein per KG Bodyweight. 0,6g is the lower Minimum. What good does a suggested Minimum do you? For someone who workouts and is active on a daily basis a lot no matter what sports it should not be advised 0,8g/kg is sufficient. No way. Plus Protein is good for your bones, hence collagen. People often tend to forget that. Plus you lose Protein during working out too. If you drink properly 2-3 g is perfectly fine, plus it keeps you stuffed as well, that kidney bullcrap, our kidneys can work awesome as long as you drink well. Just mix your protein sources. It is fairly easy: our body consists of 60% Water, 20% Protein, 10% fat, 5% Carbs and 5% Minerals. So big question now what should be the percentage of macros? Plus getting the right Minerals is a no Brainer as well. So good Protein and Fat should be your base with regard to Macros and then Focus on your Minerals with good Veggies, Fruit etc. and then good complex carbs on the side. Easy. Just saved you big bucks on pointless bro science.

  • I’m a basketball player watching these videos. Super skinny, can naturally run very long and can jump high because of plyometric training. Never could afford to go to gym, I will start going soon

  • I’ve been vegetarian for a little over a year and want to make the switch to veganism, however here in Belgium there are nearly no products available to support that.

    The vegetarian/vegan burgers are 12g/100g protein at most, with a ton of fats.. usually around 15-25g/100g.
    I’ve looked around but I can’t find anything for this, as for the rest I already eat a ton of beans and lentils to meet my protein goals, but it’s tough! Any suggestions?

  • Make even dirt easier meals. I want to switch over to mostly vegetarian meals. Current ex: broccoli, spinach, chicken, rice. Please and thank you!

  • Thanks for the cooking tips. One thing bodybuilders should know about canned foods such as beans… they normally contain significant levels of BPA, an endocrine disruptor, which can affect your testosterone level. If you switch to dry beans (uncanned), make sure you soak them overnight in room temperature water with some apple cidar vinegar to lower the pH to remove 50% of the phytates (the anti-nutrient found in most beans, nuts and grains). Same is true especially for brown rice. BTW black rice has about 10% more protein than brown and is way more nutrient dense than brown, and contains anthocyanin a powerful antioxidant found in dark pigmented berries and helps clean out the plaque in your arteries. Good for the heart and for better erections. Tastes much better than brown rice, kind of sweeter

  • It’s good to see easy recipes but these are EXTREMELY processed, full of fake, fortified vitamins. It would be so harmful for someone like me with chronic illnesses, and not everyone in the same situation who wants to be vegan would know that. Soy and gluten, which these meals contain, are also two of the most common allergens. In general I love your vids and story, I’m not at all hating, just wanted to state some important facts! The more Whole Foods in the diet the better. You can make your own waffles and freeze them, and can buy less processed breads though it isn’t as easy to find. Beyond burgers and Impossible burgers are so popular right now, and while the idea is a step in the right direction, they are not at all natural (the impossible burger is the worst. one of the ingredients isn’t even FDA approved, or it wasn’t last I checked). These types of foods shouldn’t be the bulk of anyone’s diet. Respect for your work though.

  • I have already utilized this guide for a few days already and also the results are impressive. They give me lots of strength and also suppress my urge for food, but I do NOT quit once they wear off which I really like, and they also don`t make me jittery. I have not changed anything else I`m doing and also have shed 7 lbs. Find a right weight is not easy, you can discover by Google. Program’s name is under.
    Bella Kaγozko
    good luck

  • You should also try Vital Wheat Gluten (aka Wheat Meat/Seitan). It’s a high protein meat substitute without any soy, and it’s made from the gluten of wheat. When cooked correctly, it has a very meat-like taste (for a non-meat item) and a very comparable texture. I find it’s a great option for anyone looking to increase their protein.

    ALSO, Vital Wheat Gluten can also be mixed in parts into baking mixtures (such as waffles, cakes, breads, etc) to increase the protein count and strength of the item to hold itself together. 1/4 cup (30g) is 110 calories (the same as flour) and contains 23g protein, and very few carbs. Under 8g per serving I think. I don’t recommend vital wheat gluten for pancakes as it doesn’t seem to cook well, but in waffles it’s great. It cooks perfectly. It can be used it most baking stuff. I just advise to stay away from pancakes with it.

    Don’t make something baked with only the wheat gluten though, as it’ll just be a weird seitan. You need enough flour as well to actually have it be a mix.

  • Is there any real proof that stomach fire increases when the sun is up and decreases when its down? Also is there any proof that milk induces sleep?

  • i would go vegan if it would be possible to eat 1g/lbs protein without soy products, protein shakes, fake meat or only eating lentils/kidney beans. sure I could eat only beans and lentils but look the amount calories I would have to eat to get a good amount of protein, even though i like to eat kidney beans.

    for 100g kidney beans
    protein: 8g
    protein per calorie: 0,072

    for 100g red lentils:
    calories: 358
    protein: 27g
    protein per calorie: 0,075

    1g/lbs would be for my weight approx. 150g protein. so even if i would eat only the lentils that are that high in protein, I would have to eat 556g of it and that would be almost 2000 calories. 2000 calories to get 150g of protein only eating lentils or beans!?!? vegan protein shakes taste like shit and are overpriced and I don’t trust soy. I don’t even take bio availability and amino acid profile into account here.
    so if someone has a solution that isn’t “you don’t need that much of protein”, “eat soy, its good” or “take some protein powder” feel free to share and i will consider it to give it a try if it’s reasonable.

  • The prison chili looks like something a resturant would serve IF u put sliced tomato, maybe some spinach mixed in the chili and then some basil or parsley on top!

  • Ethical arguments against veganism:

    1. If someone doesn’t feel pain, is it okay for us to break their bones? If not, vegans shouldn’t eat plants either. For example, people born with congenital analgesia cannot feel pain and are far more susceptible to life-threatening injuries than others. Even though they can feel discriminative touch and have normal cognition and sensation.

    2. Plants are sentient or self-aware by the same standards animals are deemed to be self-aware. https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/full/10.1098/rspb.2015.1379

    3. If a higher intelligence is the reason why animals should be spared from being eaten and plants shouldn’t, then there’s nothing wrong with eugenics either.

    4. What should we do about the problem of obligate carnivores? Should we sterilize them en masse and make them go extinct in the process? In a world free of carnivores, herbivores must face a stiffer competition against each other to procure food for themselves. In a world of limited resources, death and suffering is inevitable either way. A herbivorous species must either ward off, maim or starve a rival species of herbivores to death in order to fend for their own and secure territory. How is this any better?

    5. If it’s okay for animals to eat other animals including human beings, but not the other way round, then why are we applying any moral standards at all? If animals are incapable of moral agency and can’t form a social contract with humans, then it’s preferential treatment for animals which is inherently unjust towards and discriminatory against human beings. In nature, those who make the best utilization of whatever resource is available for them as food have a higher chance of survival and get to reproduce more.

    6. Humans are obligate carnivores in nature. Even if it’s in the narrow sense that we get our B12 from animal products and in some climates, our vitamin D (D3) as well. Our bodies were designed to break down meat. Why is something natural wrong, even if it has features that are unpleasant? Should we get rid of gender too since men have unfair physical advantages over women?

    7. Meat is required for optimal health. There are nutrients in animals that we simply cannot find in plants. Then there’s the fact that we can more readily absorb essential nutrients from animal products than from plants due to the lack of antinutrients, which in some cases, can be lethal. Plus, animal nutrients exist in a more bioavailable form in comparison to the plant variety. For example, retinol vs beta carotene, heme iron vs non heme iron etc. Why should we consume a prohibitive amount of nutrient sparse food which is time-consuming, uncomfortable and unhealthy due to its high fiber content and can even ruin our guts?

    8. If both plants and animals are off the menu due to ethical considerations, should chemically produced food alternatives and nutrient supplements be the future of “food” for humanity? Why should we substitute food with chemical goo when our bodies are best adapted to and have evolved over millions of years to their current state fueled by an omnivorous diet? The potential consequences could be disastrous for our species in the long run.

    9. In the near future, the already existent cultured meat will become commercially available at an inexpensive price for mass consumption. If a human donor can donate a pound of their flesh to feed a small town in the process, why is it unethical to procure it from animals instead? If altruism is a good thing, why are humans to blame for the shortcomings of animal cognition? A portion of cultured pork meant for human consumption can be fed back to pigs as well.

    10. Why should it ever be right to prevent a man from raising his own animals for food? Why should we infringe on individual liberty? Both cultured meat or a supplement aided vegan diet is dependent on big corporations and the expertise of a small, elite group of specialists. Why should people from other walks of life throw their most basic right away to the whims of a powerful minority? If they get to control our bodies, they get to control our policies as well.

    11. Is animal exploitation wrong even when it saves human lives? If it is, doesn’t it imply that the life of a few animals are more important than that of a human patient? Is this needless? Should we let nature take it’s course? Then why is it wrong to eat meat? Isn’t it natural too?

    12. If vegans really value animal lives, including that of rodents and insects, shouldn’t they adopt a lifestyle that causes minimum harm to them without being outright misanthropic? Shouldn’t vegans avoid fruits and vegetables that depend on beekeeping? Shouldn’t they take a more anti-civilization stance in general and be more closer to nature like those of the uncontacted tribes of the world? If not, how is the impact of civilization upon non-human animals not tantamount to ethnic cleansing through population displacement in a human context at the very least? Not to mention crop deaths, pest control, uprooting wildlife habitats etc. Isn’t it grossly inconsistent to be vegan while reaping the benefits of modern civilization at the same time? Is the life of an earthworm or a fruit fly less valuable than that of a cow or a dog? If so, is this a morally consistent position?

  • This is one way to become nutrient deficent and then you health collapses as a vegan. Been vegan a year now and it is essential that you eat greens at the very minimum. Id have 1 meal like this a day but not 4 meals of proccessed carbs… very unhealthy indeed. I got 1000 of my calories from a smoothie alone in the morning full of green and antioxident berries and electrolyte rich bananas, keeps your muscles rejuvinated after a work out.

  • I’m so glad you addressed creating meals with low ingredients. This has been my biggest struggle as a vegetarian looking into veganism. Every video and recipe out there looks delicious but I’m not a chef, the more ingredients, the more expensive, time consuming, and frustrating it can be to stick to a diet plan. This all looks delicious and simple. Thanks so much!

  • It’s funny when people are eating for environmental health. Yet there is imported palm oil in the processed “Beyond meat” product. Which contributes to rainforest destruction. I don’t want to criticize, rather teach you that it’s better to eat local organic fresh food. Thanks

  • Can you please make a video for people who are abroad as in What to eat and what not. Also I am doing Intermitent diet from almost 2 weeks I do notice changes in a good way, I breakfast at 12 or 11:45 and then eat again at 7:30pm. However I am getting cramps in my legs very frequently, like every few seconds when I am walking not that bad but I feel weird can you suggest something or do u know where I am going wrong…

  • Any more than four ingredients I get a headache,!������me too man great vids just found your vids 1 year vegan for me, look forward to more vids

  • I do way cheaper than Vega and just as tasty with just as much protein and nutrition. I tend to Mentor new vegans as I’m a physician with a PhD in nutrition science.

  • This video is great! It helps me recall of the time when my spouse used Custokebon Secrets to lose 18 pounds and enjoy being healthy again! Most people wish to lose fat, but we also require to remain nutritious, which is exactly what Custokebon Secrets given.

  • The recommended protein intake is 1.2 gram per kg. So for me 81 grams of protein is more than enough. Be careful guys with too much protein, do NOT believe in myths. If you have recent scientific studies recommending high amount of protein, please let me know.

  • During lockdown, I formed a 20yd track in my garden and started running end of March. By the end of June, I was able to run in excess of 10k a day totalling 110k. I’m fundraising for an animal sanctuary and I also wanted to prove you can be fit and healthy and strong into old age I’ll be 83 in September and I’ve been plant-based for 15 years. Prior to running each day I took a 125ml shot of beetroot juice and felt no aches or pains.

  • If sprouted bread is not a requirement for you then you should try Dave’s Killer Bread 21 seed. If you can afford it. I can get two loaves at Sam’s Club for $7 which is about the same price as a decent loaf of bread in the grocery store. The grocery store tends to charge around 5 bucks a loaf.

  • Way too much sodium and way too many preservatives and way too many expensive fake meats! And I’m a little concerned the protein powders may be isolated using harsh chemicals….. I suggest you eat more whole foods and find recipes to replicate those fake meats without the preservatives and sodium… Good easy meal ideas though, if you fix those issues…

  • Speaking of Da Chronic, I don’t often work out while baked, but the times I’ve gone to the gym after the studio while still baked have frequently resulted in me breaking personal bests… Go figure, I think it increases focus perhaps and helps you realize you’ve got a few more reps in you when you’re used to putting the weights down…

  • This is a really terrific vid! Did not know about Watercress, and I find hearing again about all the others helps to reinforce my practices!

  • It would have been much better if I learned this unique guide a few years back. I burned 12 lbs in 3 weeks so far. However I exercise several times a week, and also eat right. The end result shown to me is impressive. Definitely, this is important and I do hope this would deliver the results to you too because it did to me. Find a right weight is not easy, you can research by Google. Guide’s name is under.

    good luck

  • All well said by ayurveda but it gives one wrong message to Indian adults. Milk!
    Focus on consumption of milk has become bad in modern times. Both in terms of animal cruelty and lactose intolerance. Adults are not biological meant to take too much milk, it has brought serous heart diseases in India.
    Also humans are the only species who actually drink milk from another animal, that too life long, milk is something natures gives to nourish a growing baby. Milk consumption atleast too much is bad!

  • Is Custokebon Secrets helpful to lost crazy amounts of weight? We have read numerous good things about Custokebon Secrets (google search it).

  • I’ve been contemplating going vegan for a few months now because I was afraid of not getting enough protein to continue building and maintaining my muscle. But you sir have showed me it is possible to get an adequate amount of protein! Thank you

  • disliked cause olive oil is very unhealthy.
    then protein, you spam protein word whole time, so is it milk protein or egg protein or soja protein or other??

  • Dear mic, now that you’ve done 5 best foods for exercise (physical stress), can you do a video on foods that help decrease mental stress? What do you think we should eat more of in order to elevate our mood / ease anxiety or depression?

  • I really enjoy your videos, you have a nice way about you. I for one have NOT slipped during COVID. I turned my garage into a gym and have been hitting it hard along with a running schedule. So these food tips are super useful thanks and be well.

  • Sunrise to sunset????
    So if in Norway I have to eat 6 months and hungry for another 6 months.and no non veg…..?so that’s why vikings were so strong and smart.

  • Came across this channel from your 100 day run streak video. You inspired me to start a run streak. Gonna try 40 days starting from today! Keep it up man, love the channel

  • watercress number 1 LOL WTF i rest my case, grass fed beef completely destroys that and its not even a preworkout fuel, the protein from gluconeogenesis is far superior to your hippy leaves mic.

  • Fantastic video, thanks for sharing! I think Garden of Life protein powders are better than Vega made from a broad range of sprouted ancient grains instead of just peas and rice and less sugar.

  • You have no idea how happy I am to finally, FINALLY, have found a video that offers exactly what I need for my upcoming meal prep:

    vegan-friendly, efficient while preserving taste, flexible, protein dense, and diverse enough to get neither overwhelming nor boring.

    You a boi. THANK YOU ��

  • Didn’t expect tumeric and ginger to be on the list, or even that high.

    Knew about how godly blueberries and spinach are for a while.

  • I love your channel. I have been a subscriber for a long time and I have learned a lot from you. Can you teach us how to read scientific studies?

  • 1. Watercress 3:35
    2. Ginger 5:30
    3. Beet Juice + Large amounts of Rocket/Arugula (For Nitrates) 6:55
    4. Berries 8:55
    5. Spinach 11:40

    Honourable mention: 1/4 Tsp Turmeric + a pinch of black pepper 3:05

    I would also add in Kale, as the more you train, the more you put your body under strain which leaves the body open to immune system issues. So improving the immune system is always a bonus: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/kale-and-the-immune-system/

    Video on vegetables high in Nitrates, the problems with greens is you have to eat a lot so beet juice is easier to drink. https://nutritionfacts.org/video/vegetables-rate-by-nitrate/

  • Hi Mic, I’ve loved the research you share and your delivery for years now—thank you! The watercress study link is not linking to the study…do you know if you need a login to view it? If not, could you pls repost the link? There is not much info out there on this yet, and it is so exciting: ). Thank you!! Ps, just bought your cookbook, and we’re excited to try it!

  • Nutrition Facts had a couple of articles about high oxalate content of spinach and at most you should eat it 2x a week. Yet they also say it reduces oxidative stress. I’m confused.

  • I’m glad I’m not alone with the frustration of my gym being closed. It was 100 degrees this weekend in my area, and hell if I wanna run through the woods (I normally do in the cooler months) in a pool of my own sweat. I actually find myself exercising in my office at work since no one’s here!

  • Well, shit. I just missed Mic’s “Ask Me Anything” livestream for today thanks to some stupid, overly long, misleading advert! ����‍♀️����‍♂️����‍♀️

  • I honestly can’t be Vegan 100% of the time. I get headaches and feel malaise after an extended period of time, but trying Vegan out has helped my eating habits and I am eating more fruits, grains, and vegetables than dairy and meat.

  • There’s a relevant note to be taken: Although antioxidants are very important for maximum metabolic protection and recovery, acute oxidative stress from exercise has proven to be key as a signaling factor for adaptative responses (e.g. hypertrophy). That’s why, theoretically speaking, you don’t want to be shoving down highly antioxidant-rich foods or specially supplements right after and/or during your workout. How much time should you wait? I don’t really know, probably not much.

  • I’ve seen some videos about sea moss and I’m super curious about it, would love to see a video about it by you! if that’s not a big enough subject you could talk about a bunch of sea vegetables and algae (:
    Also, do you already have a video about boosting your immune system for covid?

  • Mic, could you please debunk this garbage out of the University of Florida? https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-people-high-cholesterol-carbs-saturated.html

  • I really can’t believe this!! I watched this twice, all your uploaded videos thus far for 2020 (every single one & again, sometimes twice or even thrice) & I’ve been working my way backwards to your very first & I still can’t believe it!! Embarrassingly this is my first comment, apologies �� Thank you for this & all your videos! I’m so missing my callisthenics gym here in the ���� Was loving it & progressing well, especially after drinking beetroot juice 2 hours prior! Totally agree with Turmeric & Black Pepper post exercise! So glad Vivo Life’s ‘Perform’ protein powder has them! Keep up the great work �� Maybe a top 5 foods for falling asleep faster & better sleep?! Cheers!

  • You`ll be the first human being to live 200 years with this routine, very very inspiring, congratulations and thanks for sharing the hard (and fun!) work, god bless you

  • You really want your mind blown? Look into the fungi kingdom Chaga, reishi, lions mane, codryceps and many more. Use duel extracted tinctures. There everything he just said but much more potent.

  • Today marks my third anniversary of going vegan (at the age of 54). My turning point was watching a Mic the Vegan video. A million-and-one thanks to you, Mike!!!

  • Wondering what your take on the rise in people having issues on a vegan diet? Do you think they did it wrong or that being vegan isn’t for everyone?

  • I always have migraines during the night when I workout in the late evening, my kickboxing classes are between 8-9pm so I can’t really change the time I train. Do you have a recommendation? my Dr only gives me more and more pills and it doesn’t really work….

  • Hello! I wonder if b12 and seaweed is good or bad together? I have heard that b12 in seaweed is not the same as from supplement and it can do so the body doesnt take it up??

    Or is it okay if I eat like dulse in my smoothie in the morning and b12 supplement in the evening? ��

  • Awesome video MIC. Could you make a video about oxidative stress post exercise? Is it worse to exercise than not to? I’m confused

  • As a Ukrainian, I am convinced beets are the reason my people have survived until now, because it is a major part of our diet.

    And we eat tart cherries, gooseberries, currants, and all other wild berries in the summer until we get acid reflux, and now I see why! Ancient wisdom lol

  • Tree planting hasn’t worked out.
    I knew it wouldn’t. The issue is land not trees.
    I read a recent Guardian article that referenced two new studies which found that this tree planting fad has led to even more deforestation.
    What’s happening is that farmers are chopping down existing woodland and planting it with saplings so that they can get the reforestation money.
    And why should we believe that these new sapling plantations will be safe from future development?
    I don’t know why people seem to think that there spare land out there that just needs trees.
    The whole idea doesn’t make any sense. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a scam.
